r I ► I f September 9,1927 HIGH LIFE Faye Three SIX LOCAL BOYS ARE ENROLLED IN CAMP AT FORT BRAGG, N. C. Routine of Day Similar to Reg ular Army—Companies Drilled 7:30 to 11:30 ON DUTY JUNE 14-JULY 11 Ben Wood, Lee Vanstory, Harvey Blue, Marshall Barney, Glenn Gurley and Harris Ogburn Attended Camp G. 11. S. was represented at the Citi zens :\Iilitary Training Camp at Fort Bragg, .Time U-.Tiily 14, by six boys. Those who attended were: Ben Wood. Lee Vanstory, llarvcy Bine, Mjirshiill Barney, Glenn Gurley, and Harris Og burn. The routine of the day was similar to that of the regular army. The hardest part of the work, according to Ben Wood, was from 7 ;30 to 11 ;30. At this time the companies drilled. After this was completed nothing else was reciuired of the boys except to play games in the afternoon. The camp had an excellent baseball coach and also coaches in tr'acdc, tennis and football for those intere.sted. During the stay at camp each person had to do Kitchen Police Duty for one day. This was unanimously agreed upon as the worst part of the camp. Harris Ogburn said he didn't know the potato crop was so large until he jiealed spuds one day. If a boy attends three seasons of this cam]) he will receive a commission in the li. O. T. C. This is a way to train the American youth to be pre- jiarcd in time of war and yet not have to enlist in the army for any time whatsoever.

IMPROVEMENTS No more can tlie students of G. H. S. send up S. O. S. calls through tlie Open Opinion colmnn concerning nar row walks, lack of steps, and niaiiy other things whidi furnished material for complaints. Tlie Open Opinion (rolniiin luis been forced out of business for the present, at least. With the beginning of school sur prised students found all kinds, sorts, shaiies. and sizes of walks, .steps, etc. We have nothing to complain about, but better still, we Iiave soinetliing to brag about, (i. H. S. has so many new trap- ])ings that we can liardly recognize her. There are the church pews, some thing at schools. After much consul tation, it was decided by the faculty that each pupil should bring his own cushion as it would probably cause con fusion for the school to furnish a cer tain number. It lias been suggested by the pupils, after much consultation, that each unfortunate who finils it necessary to visit the mourner’s bencli in Miss Mitchell's olfice, bring two cushions. Aliss Lottie Morgan, also, has a new addition to her apartment, a time keeper ! Now, don’t get excited, it’s a clock, not a man. AA’e hope she does not try to keep u.s here all day just to try it out. SPECIAL COMMITTEES APPOINTED BY PHILLIPS (Tentative) 1.

FREEMAN HEARD AT ODELL MEMORIAL BY JUNE GRADUATES C. W. Phillips Awards Medais and Distinctions—Frederick Archer Presents Dipiomas 94 RECEIVE DIPLOMAS Speaking For Wider Horizons Dr. Freeman Urges Class to Be in the Spirit of Going On The commencement exercises of Greensboro High School were held June 3, at Odell Alemorial. Following the invocation by Rev. I. H. Hughes, Air. E. D. Broadhurst, chairman of the board of education, in troduced the siieaker of the evening, Dr. Douglas S. Freeman. Dr. Free man is editor of the News Leader, of Richmond, A'a. Speaking for wider horizons in the future Dr. Freeman said, “the tragedy of life is loss of interest in other things and the development of interest in only self.” He characterized the first cause of narrow lioridons as mental sloth. He gave intellectual short-cuts as the sec ond cause of narrowness, and as his final cause, faith in the superlative vir- tiire of specialization. The way to widen horizons, lie said, was to be in tlie spirit of going on. AA'ider horizons would liring not only physical and mental advantages but those “in the realm of the mind” would be of far greater value. After the address C. AY. riiillips, principal of the High School, gave the records of the year and awarded medals and distinctions. Following this Frederick Archei’, sup erintendent of the sch(X)ls, presented diplomas to the 94 graduates. vSinging of the i-lass song and bene- iliction by Rev. II. A.

LOCAL SCOUTS ATTEND GRAYSTONE IN JUNE At Least Seven New Troops Are to Be Organized Among the Various Schools and Churches—Scouting Better Even though most of the troops have been disbanded during the summer, scouting has been active in Greensboro. Alore than two hundred and fifty boys spent at least two weeks at Gre.vstone, the camp of the Groenshoro Council of the Roy Scouts. The sea.son, the camp's third, was divided into four periods of two weeks for the scouts and two periods of one week for the boys who are too young to be. scouts but who intend to enter Scouting when they reach the age of twelve. The program included nature study, water sports, athletics, handicraft and other subjects of a scouting nature. Air. J. AA'. Geeslin, the Scout Execu-- tive, has a number of plans for the promotion of scouting in Greensboro. He intends to organize at least .seven new troops among the various churches and schools. Of interest to scouts in G. 11. S. is Air. Geeslin’s jilan to enable them to pass merit badges while in school. He and Scout Commissioner Benbow have arranged to have different business nuMi of the city who have qualified as merit badge examiners, to visit the school during study jieriods and pass the boys on their tests. The Executive says he has every reason to believe that scouting, this fall and winter, will be even better and more successful than the last.
