You do the editors a grievous wrong if your own heart does not bring to their 1924 Tarpitur as many loving fancies of our high school and all she means as hover around the making ol this book. Miss Belle Doub DEDICATION To one who has always been ready to help us over the rough places — to one whose energy, help, and untiring efforts have made this annual possible — TO MISS BELLE DOUB a beloved teacher, we dedicate this fifth volume of THE TARPITUR Tarpitur Editorial Staff Page Eight Pine Needles Soft sunshine on fragrant plumes of shimmering pine needles! Shut your eyes and take a long, deep breath. Warm little tingles start travel- ling downward on the inside until they tickle one ' s toes, and then glowing little waves spread over the whole being inside and out. Breathe again; deeper, deeper, deeper. A spicy aroma goes pricking its way to every nerve. The top of one ' s head seems delightfully hollow now just to be filled with this piquant, racy, pine-shine smell. And faintly one begins to thrill to a sensation of rhythm. The tingling and the tickling, the glowing and the prickling, are softly, surely beating with an emphasis repeating all the shiver of the swaying tops of pine, all the quiver from the earth beneath the feet, ' till the pulsing in the air and from the ground throb together in a vibrant, voiceless sound, " Carolina, Carolina, Carolina.

" Colors: Green and Gold Flower: Coreopsis Senior History THE LONG AND NARROW PATH On that day of days, which will never be forgotten, we came to High School to start upon the long and narrow path which ends on graduation day. That was a memorable day, one that began worries for us and trouble for our teachers. We knew not of the rough and rocky path to Seniordom, for we were as green as a forest of trees in the spring. We were only Freshmen and had to put up with the initiations given us by the educated professors of the Sophomore class and the other members higher up who could hardly wait for recess to come so as to welcome us into high Page Eighteen school with a shower bath, or by causing fainting spells among the students by taking off the shoes of the Freshmen who could be found on the yard. Many of us needed study, and it seemed as if we could study better at recess than at any other timt. Those who did not take the Doctors ' advice were stricken during the epidemic of examinations and dropped along the wayside, but the rest of the class had to keep going. We were ushered the next year into the Sophomore class, having grown wiser during the travel of nine months over the road on which many had failed to succeed. Our enrollment of eighty the previous year had diminished to sixty-three, but wo returned determined to pester the new members just slipped through the gates of grammar school. We resumed our studies only to find that the path was not growing any wider or any smoother. We had wild dreams that never came true. We soon decided to be good students and never have to stay in more than five afternoons to the week. We were like a kite in a March wind at times, and always told our parents that it was the teachers ' fault. We now realize that it was through them that we passed over the path with so small a number of scars and bruises. The epidemic cf examinations swooped down upon us again, but the most of us had gained a lesson from the previous pestilence and were prepared. There were fifty-nine of us to worry our teachers the next year while passing over the hardships and encountering many storms which blocked our progress in the Junior class. Every day in every way we were growing wiser and wiser, but still there were difficulties to overcome which we could not realize were preparing us for paths even rougher. We were beginning to show up on the athletic field; six of the boys were members of the football squad, four were on the basketball team, and two of our girls represented our class on the girls ' basketball team. Our class also won the music test put on by Miss Edmundson, the music teacher. " The Charm School, " which our class presented to the public, was said to be a success, and I ' m sure that any Senior of last year ' s graduation class will declare it was. The leaves began to bud and many of us caught the spring fever, which lengthened our days on the path, but after diagnosis by the doctor, this was found to be only laziness, and it soon had to be shaker, off. The day of the annual Junior-Senior banquet came. This event was enjoyed by all, but not forgotten by many on account of the mistakes made in etiquette even after studying the book for two weeks. The path was getting rougher and steeper, but we were used to it ere this. Although we had a stiff climb during this year, we were not anxious to leave our faithful teachers who had helped us to make our stay in this class a successful one. We passed on into the Senior class with forty-two to fight our way in the darkest hour of the night, which is said to come just before dawn. The path was very rough, for many hardships were imposed upon us. We nearly lost the seats in the auditorium which it had been customary for the Seniors to occupy. We were helped by our efficient room-teacher and others who forgot the many things that we had done to wcrry them. We had many things to look forward to and one of them was the banquet given us by the Juniors. We enjoyed it even more than we did last year, as we did not have to chase over town to borrow plates and silver for the occasion. Other things came to pass which made us hate to leave, but there are still objectives ahead in life ' s journey, and we must move on to make room for those left behind. —DANIELS, ' 24 Page Nineteen It ett » III, ,L| Walter Devereaux Creech " Tito ' I am young, 1 scorn to flit On the wings of borrowed wit.

It is said that she wouldn ' t come to school without know- ing every lesson. I guess she thinks that ' s the most expedient thing to do. However, studying is but one of her activities. You ought to see her ride a horse. " Becky " is very sarcastic and as funny as can be. Eloise Sasser " Bees " " Bees " is lovable and jolly. With her depth of knowledge of French and Geometry she will be able to go out in the world some day and realize h er highest ambition, that of being a school teacher.

These are just two cases to prove that Emma Harvey is always the center of action. 4- Mayme Hall Pickett " A cheerful grin will let you in, Where the knocker in never known.

He loves our school so well that he comes five miles back and forth daily to be with us. Margaret Matthews Robinson " Happiness is cheaper than wisdom, Why pay the higher price? " " Work and you work alone, " is Mar- garet ' s motto. She takes things as they ccme and forever seems bubbling over with love o ' life. She always finds something to laugh about, and when there ' s mischief, Margaret is on hand. 4- Wentworth Willis Pierce " Went " " Here ' s a boy who stands high in hi work, And learns long lines from the front of his Burke.

Henry Weil " Say more and talk less; study no more than you have to, " says Henry. Here ' s a boy who lacks the gift o ' gab, but what he does say is worth listening to.

Goldsboro has had lots of new girls this year. Walter ' s craze even takes him to the Panama Canal each summer in quest of new hearts to break. His closest friends know him as being mischievous, but to strangers he is just innocent Walter. Football ' 22.

Several of the passengers were instantly killed, and a large majority were seriously injured and knocked unconscious. I was no exception, being one of the first carried by auto to the St. Vincent Hospital, where I lay unconscious for several hours. Dur- ing this time I had a wonderful dream concerning the members of the Senior Class of the Goldsboro High School. My first vision was that of the ferry building in San Francisco. Immediately after stepping from the gang plank I met George Kornegay, porter for the Kearny Hotel, who ushered me over to Morris Heilig ' s taxicab. Morris recognized me immediately and exclaimed, " Hello, John! Are ou stopping at Creech ' s Hotel or Francis Morris ' s boarding house? " " Well, financially I prefer the boarding house. " During my short stay there I met several of my school friends as I strolled around the city. Among them was Swindell Jenkins, proprietor of a chop suey orgy down in China Town ; Mayme Hall Pickett, Elizabeth Newsome, and Beulah Grady were with a Keith ' s chorus. Walter Wrenn possessed one of the best saloons of the city, located on the Barbary Coast, specifically Van Ness Avenue. Jack Pyatt, most popular newspaper reporter of The Chronicle, was crowding the sport columns of his paper with Crum ' s sensational hits of the season. Before leaving town I visited the Bijou Theater, where I saw a Wentworth Peirce production, featuring Sheik Parker and Elizabeth Bizzell, in which the leading lady lavished her affections on Sheik Parker, to his evident admiration. Annie Kelly, Martha Dortch, and Catherine Edgerton sold ice cream, peanuts, and pop corn during the intermission. As I passed out of the theater and down the street to Mason docks, I met Eloise Sasser and Mabel Shipp, who were on their way to board the ship Mauretania for Hawaii, the land well known for its beauty and volcanic activity, and visited by tourists from every part of the world. I saw in a vision the ancient City Hilo, which was overwhelmingly ensconced under a tremendous overflow of lava. During the excavation, the first thing discovered was an old record of the Kimaki Dancing School, owned bv an old maid named Anne Turner. The orchestra was directed by Newton Mathews, the famous Hawaiian music genius. Miss Bessie Kadis, his assistant, was admitted to be Hawaii ' s most famous ukelele accompanist. Alton Leach was mentioned as the originator of the tomi- PAGE THIRTY HY- v Tw ijr, jja ._F c TARPITUR,-lg tomi. Maybelle Mitchell was highly praised for being the school ' s greatest taro player. Several of the students were also mentioned, including Frankie Ilartsfield, Mary Edmundson, Margaret Robinson, and Edwina Yelverton, with Lossie Simmons as the teacher. My heart palpitated with great agitation to think that these girls died before they could use the vamping qualities assimilated from Lossie. The old printing establishment of The Honolulu Star Bulletin was uncovered. There were several old copies of the newspaper lying on the floor. On the front page of one of them was a statement regarding the safe arrival of the ship Mauretania in the port of Honolulu. Among the most prominent passengers mentioned were Mabel Shipp and Eloise Sasser. In another article, a large reward was offered by Frank Matthews for the recovery of an old edition of Palgrave ' s Golden Treasui-ij. Several of the papers gave the returns from the election of mayor for the City of Honolulu. Bruce Yelverton had been badly defeated by Rebecca Petway. The result evidently showed that the suffragettes ruled. Lillian Brown was mentioned as the greatest political boss of the suffragettes. In another paper she was thanked by Rebecca for her aid in the election. There were several attractive advertisements. Among these was Ellen Gardner ' s announcement pertaining to the opening of a beauty parlor, using Eleanor Kornegay ' s famous toilet articles. The analysis of the proceedings of the court was published in heavy type. The bench was occupied by my old friend, Henry Weil. Mrs. Ed. Daniels was granted a divorce, because the evidence implied non-support. I could hear Ed ' s moans and groans as I read the somber article. His non- plussed verbiage became so frantic that, when I regained consciousness in old St. Vincent Hospital, it was almost impossible for me to realize that it was only the yells of an interne in the adjoining ward. The yells con- tinued until I awoke from my dream to find that it was only some grammar school boys fighting in the street.

Langston Page Thirty. three Memories Winter ' s chilly blasts were fleeing, Leaving Springtime in her wake; One could hear the birds a-singing As they circled o ' er the lake. Strolling down beside the water, Gazing deep into its depths, Suddenly my dream was startled — Surely, I had heard footsteps. Gaily tripping down the pathway, Came some youngsters, bright and gay, Laughing, chatting, never fearing, They are bold in what they say. Then I thought, " ' Tis surely Freshmen ; " No one else would hardly dare Tread this pathway with its dangers With that joyous care-free air. Hardly had this gay throng passed me When another came in sight Marching slowly down the pathway With a lordly mien and might. And I gazed in awe-struck wonder As the Sophomores passed me by; Dignity in every movement, Shoulders up and heads held high. Could it be that I was dreaming? Hardly dared I think it true; But look, see them coming Bearing colors, white and blue. Juniors, I could not mistake you, I would know you anywhere ; For none other could be like you With your independent air. Now I find myself transported From this scene in wooded dell, And I hear someone saying " Take this, girlie, you ' ve done well. " Then I knew it was a vision Wrought from memories of the past, And I thanked the one who gave us Our diplomas at the last.

There was no outstand- ing star, but all the young people fitted perfectly into their parts and showed the effects of the splendid training they had received from Miss Margaret Korne gay and Miss Lucy Lawley of the faculty. The leading roles were splendidly played by Mary Miller Falkener, as Judy Abbott, and Leslie Britt as Jervis Pendleton. Both gave extremely finish- ed performances, were well poised and at ease even in the love scenes, usually so difficult for the amateur. The opening scene was laid in the dining room of the John Grier Orphans ' Home and showed four gingham-clad orphans, Gladiola, Sadie Kate, Mamie, and Loretta busily engaged in polishing silver in preparation for a visit from the trustees. These parts, laughable and pathetic in turn, were played in a very appealing way by Margaret Lynch, Fannie Howell, Flossie Cogdell, and Helen Dortch. Tom Robinson, as Fred- die Perkins, was a real snaggle-toothed boy, who led the orphans in their cry of " Corn Meal Mush! Corn Meal Mush! Slush! Slush! Slush! ' ' Blanche Brooks, the stern, tight-lip- ped Mrs. Lippett, exactly typified the old idea of the matron of an orphans ' home. Thomas Griffin gave a remarkably clever piece of character acting as Cyrus Wyckoff, the whiny, crotchety old trustee who became so infuriated on finding his picture sketched by Judy Abbott. Abner Parsons, another of th trustees, was well played by William Daniels. Both were admirably made up for their parts. Lillian Stroud gave a very smooth and dignified interpreta- tion of Mrs. Pritchard, the really human trustee. She interested Jervis Pendleton in Judy Abbott so much that he con- sented to send her to college on the condition that his identity remain un- known. When told of her good fortune, Judy requested the name of her benefactor, but was refused. It was then she de- cided to call him " Daddy Long-Legs. " Fortunately for Jervis, he was able to place Judy in a school with his niece, Julia Pendleton, and her friend Sallie McBride, as roommate. It was in their suite that the scene of Act II was laid, the occasion being a visit from Julia ' s family. Father Newsome as the arrogant Mrs. Pendleton was fine. Margaret Giddens and Beulah Petway vivaciously and effectively played the parts of Sallie and Julia. Robert Yel- verton as Jimmie McBride, Sallie ' s brother from Yale, was the typical col- lege youth. He was particularly good in the last act where he donned sporting clothes and a moustache. Fannie Howell gave a really fine characterization of Mrs. Semple, Jervis ' old nurse, at whose farm Judy spent her summers. She delighted the audi- ence with her interest in her neighbors ' telephone conversations, and her mother- liness toward Jervis. Helen Dortch carried a double role and as Carrie, Mrs. Semple ' s maid, was good. Jervis Pendleton ' s living room was the scene of the last act. Jervis, wan and pale, was recovering from an ill- ness and had the usual grouch of the convalescent. However, he was wen cared for by his efficient secretary, Mannah Shrago, and his faithful butler. John Spicer. The butler had the charac- teristic " side burns " and solemn, menial air. Jervis is miraculously cured when he finds that Judy loves him and not Jimmy McBride. Judy appears in search of her " Daddy Long-Legs, ' and finds that he and Jervis are one, and so the play ends satisfactorily for everyone. Page Thirty. nine The Junior-Senior Banquet The 1924 Junior-Senior banquet measured up in every respect to the high standard set by the previous ones. Each committee did its utmost towards making it the glorious success that it was. Anyone happening in during the feast might well have thought that he had sud- denly been transferred to fairyland. The large auditorium banked with pines, the gold shields bearing the Junior and Senior numerals, and the soft, mellow glow of the many yellow-shaded floor lamps made a picture which will long linger in the memory of all those present. The table with its flickering candles and baskets of flowers, and the many colored evening dresses of the girls, all added beauty to the scene. Then, last but not least, there were the little French maids who certainly added to the occasion, and who served with such skill and dexterity that they might have been taken for the real thing! The dry, clever wit of the toastmistress, Fanny Howell, ably seconded by such well-known characters as Anne Turner and Jack Pyatt, kept the diners in an uproar of laughter. During the latter part of the evening, Dr. John Spicer was called upon to decide whether or not Mr. Hamilton was to be given a fourth saucer of ice cream. Upon his deciding that the results would most likely be disastrous, the saucer wa? turned over to Mr. Wagner who declared he had no fear for his personal safety and that he would absolve the Junior Class from all responsibility in case of accident. Everyone was thoroughly mystified when Georgia Margaret Lynch suddenly be- gan to cry. Lillian Stroud sympathetically inquired what the trouble was. She answered between sobs, that Bill Bizzell was holding her hand, her right hand, under the table, and since she had never learned to use her left, she didn ' t know how she was going to eat that grand-looking salad. A move was then made that Bill release Georgia Margaret ' s hand until after the salad at least. During the early part of the evening, Kitty Metz openly accused Miss Walker of selfishness. It wasn ' t fair, she said, for Miss Walker to be sitting between Fred Crum and John Bridgers and just across from Leslie Britt, while all she could see was the Sta-Comb on Johnnie ' s hair shining in the candle light. The guests immediately began siding with Kitty or Miss Walker. One side declared that since age came before beauty Miss Walker was in her own rights. The other faction maintained, however, that as Miss Walker always sat with Johnnie and Leslie every day in chapel it would be only the sporting thing for Miss Walker to give up to Kitty. After much arguing pro and con it was finally decided that Miss Walker should keep Johnnie and Leslie, but should give up Fred and at the same time promise not to give Kitty less than 4-f on Geometry. This satisfied everyone except Johnnie Bridgers, who seemed decid- edly " put out " over the decision. No notice was taken of him, however, and th . banquet progressed peacefully enough. After the dinner the guests were entertained by the Stunt Committee. Even the Seniors admitted that for originality, cleverness, and fun the stunts " put it all over " those of last year. Falkener, ' 25 Page Forty Q. E. D., or Four to One in Favor of the Affirmative The exposure came with a suddenness that was bewildering an of the hallowed traditions of the Goldsboro High School.

Robert stated that the generally accepted theory as to how the latte contracted was that Tom had ridden one or two of the young Cleopatras of Goldsboro that upon arriving at their destination bad demanded as his fare, a kiss. Hence his illness. Finally a quorum was reached ami the meeting was called to order by Leslie Britt. The fire- works began at once. Lillian Stroud opened up and shot a veritable barrage into the camp of those arguing against her paint and powder. With tin knowledge of a savant and the skill of a Portia she- traced the history anil the advancement of cosmetics. Sin cited as examples of those who in their lifetimes were given to the use of cosmetics; Eve, Eugenia, Mary Stuart. Drldah. Queen Elizabeth, Mable Norman, and Edwina Yelverton. If these famous characters of history, both profane and modern, had favored their use, why not the Junior Class ' The applause was tumultuous and it appeared as though the banner of victory was to fly from the staff of the " Rougers. " Then with all the stateliness and pomposity of an ex-Senator, there rose from his seat the one and only John Spicer. His voice was vibrating with emotion and in husky tones be pleaded for the disuse of cosmetics. His words were few and simple and in bringing to a close his heart-rending appeal he stated that be was a good example of a person who not only refused to use powder and paint but he also put soap in the same category and dispensed with it. Not a sound was audible when he sat down — he evidently created a sensation by his confession. Ella Smith then spoke at some length -her face beamed and shone with her subject. John Bridget ' s remarked in a most casual manner that " Ella was full of her subject " and as a reward for this unfortunate remark received a slap from the hand of Beulah Petway, who is extremely biased in her e to speak but he was hooted down by a trio of his fellow members, -, and John Fuller.

We knew nothing of " high life, " and things were unfamiliar. We were assigned to our rooms and introduced to our teachers. Suddenly a bell rang, the echo sounded, and a severe punch in the back happened all at once. " What ' s that for? " somebody whispered. How did I know what it was? To hide my ignorance I nodded my head disdainfully. Our room teacher soon told us where to go, and in perfect line we marched down the hall. " Hello, freshies, " shouted a dignified Senior. Someone in our line answered, " I ' d rather be fresh than stale. " " Don ' t act cute, " sang out our tormentor. Yes, this our first day in High School, we were told not to act cute by those dignified persons. This statement made us wiser and sadder freshies. But things have changed now. We are no longer strangers, and the teachers think we have enough pep.

Haec! " September twenty-eighth, saw Goldsboro battling with Greenville on the home field. This was our first game of the season, and due to the loss of all but two letter-men, we were defeated 18 to 7. Although green, the team showed up fairly well. The next week we journeyed to Kinston, our old rival, who turned the tide, beating us by the same score that we defeated them by last year, 7 to 0. Smithfield was our next opponent. They outweighed us, and in fact, had a far superior team to ours. We went down in another glorious defeat, 24 to 0. Our next game was at home with Wilmington, who eliminated us from the cham- pionship series last year. The Wilmington team expected to snow us completely undei , but beat us only 18 to 0, getting two of their touchdowns on fumbles and a blocked kick. This defeat was a disappointment to the school, but just the same we stuck to it and played hard. The game with Tarboro was spiced with school spirit. The whole student body turned out to see us win our first game, 31 to 0. Tarboro, hearing that everyone was walking over us, thought she would take a promenade. But Goldsboro seemed to have a team made up of star players on this occasion, for everyone played a stellar gam " . We arrived at Greenville with the same spirit that was displayed against Tarboro. We returned home with as good a spirit as could be expected of a team which had been beaten 23 to 0. This game dashed our hopes again into the depths of dis- appointment. But we were not to lose always, for Kinston was our second victim. Nothing seemed to be able to stop that " human battering ram, " Robert Isler, who played through the Kinston line at will. The game was an enjoyable one throughout. We turned over a new leaf and resolved to take the following games with a good spirit, whether we should win or lose. Dunn, our next rival, defeated us by the score of ( to 0. Football this year seemed to be a failure, but those who know the circumstances consider it good that we won any games at all. There were only four letter-men to build the team around. Around these four men a bunch of husky Sophomores and Freshmen were knocked into shape to play their first year of football. Although the team did not show up so well, there was always a feeling of good spirit among them. We leave the hope that next year ' s team will hold on to our spirit, and combine with it a powerful driving force that will carry them to the state championship. Nuff said. Fred Crum, ' 24 Page Fifty- three Basketball Basketball season is here! What sort of team will we have? A good one, fair one, or a bad one? This year ' s team turned out to be in the fair class, neither good nor bad. We started off in the good class, winning our first game from Nahunta, 9 to 8. It was the first game of most of the players, and lead us to think highly of them. We still stood our ground by defeating Rosewood by the score of 22 to 17. Will they keep up the winning streak? No; it was knocked in the head when we let up and lost to Princeton, 13 to 9. Hard luck, boys, try again ! Wilmington handed us the small end of the score, and piled up 42 to our 14 points. This was only one of the steps Wilmington took to the Eastern Championship. We put Belfast on our list of victories after an exciting game, which resulted in a 36 to 24 score. Belfast came back in our next game with her and handed us a defeat merely as a revenge. The score was 27 to 15. Her feeling of revenge not as strong as before, Belfast bov d down to us again by the score of 36 to 24. This game gave us a two out of three victory. Pikeville brought her strong quint to Goldsboro, and piled up a score of 54 points to our 13. We had hopes to win our next game but failed to find the basket in our game with Mt. Olive. The court was entirely strange to us. They won 34 to 20. Our last game was played here with Mt. Olive. They simply gave us the cold shoulder, defeating us by the score of 27 to 13. So ended our basketball season and most of the players ' high school careers. We did not contest for state honors, but simply played for the athletic training and for the love of the game. After the school season was over a schedule was arranged for a High School Championship contest. Each class was to have a team. The Seniors proved their superiority by defeating every team that was so unfortunate as to go up against them. This created much interest and it is hoped that more interest will be taken next year in securing recognition in the State Championship series. The girls ' first game was with Nahunta. They were able to drop the ball in the basket for 23 points to Nahunta ' s 13. Their next game was played at Kinston with Kinston High. It was a thriller and we lost by only one point, 13 to 12. We then journeyed to Mt. Olive to show them what a pair of good forwards was really like. Edwina won her nickname, " Never Miss, " and Kitty showed the Mt. Olive girls some fast floor work. This turned out to be a glorious victory for us. The score was 47 to 9. Next came a trip to Smithfield. The Goldsboro girls seemed to be off that night, going down in defeat to the tune of 22 to 10. This ended the season, and the games scheduled with Smithfield, Wilson, and Wil- mington were cancelled. The team was one of the best in years. The whole school was some disappointed when the girls broke up, with four good games on schedule not yet played. We had a chance at state honors but lost them by closing the season, so soon. The nucleus of the team gradutes this year, leaving a new team to spring up and make a record for themselves and our dear old high school. Crum, ' 24 Page Fifty. five £ TARPlTUR J Leslie Britt Britt naturally looks like an athlete. He ' s right there when the fireworks start. John Fuller " Long " is exactly what his nick name suggests; long, tall, with hands that pluck the ball from the air when least expected. " Long " was a sub this year.

Frank ' s favorite style of play- ing is to shoot all the goals. fiftO tarettur. If Fred Crum Fred is the ball-bearing in the wheel. He excels in any part and plays the game to a finish. Lowell Miller " Dusty " is little but that doesn t keep the ball out of the basket. He ' s a good shot, an asset to the team. Walter Wrenn Walter is our center. When it comes to jumping, he ' s the stuff. He ' s an all-round good player. John Spicer John is a second Carmichael. t He had rather have the form of Cart than to eat, and you know that ' s going some. Howard Simmons Howard is always anxious to play basketball. He proved this by his record this year. PAGE Fl FT Y -SEVEN 1(1 e Edwina Yelverton Edwina has been our mainstay at forward for four years. Some say she never misses.

" Our high school is the proud possessor of a silver cup bearing the above inscription, presented to us by our smiling champion. He will not be with us to contest this time as he is at Chapel Hill. We still hope, however, to send a championship team to the finals. There are no brilliant outstanding players at school this year, but the tour- nament for the school championship will serve as a fishing pole to catch the successful players by the nape of the neck and hold them up before the state as contestants from Goldsboro. Track was first introduced to G. H. S. last year. We won a beautiful loving cuo by winning the relay race in the meet held here for high schools of Eastern Carolina. We also won places in various other races. This is a new branch of athletics in Goldsboro High School and supporters are eager to see what Wagner and Shepard will do with the material discovered last year. Baseball is the most favored of American sports. The boys of G. H. S. are always- filled with joy at the thought of beginning practice. Practice started this year about March 17th. Our team hasn ' t any bright prospects, but you never can tell! Of Captain Boney ' s men only three are letter men of last year. There are a group oT prospects though that pop up every season. Coach Leftwich has secured lovely new uniforms, thereby inspiring great interest among the members of the team who cherish the applause of the grand stand. Notwithstanding the deficit of men, a fairly good team is being drawn into shape. Crum, ' 24 Page Sixty Turner- Kxis-t-aU- ' row Why I Never Hire Brilliant Men ISIETeS Resolved, That the Inter-Allied War Debts Should Be Cancelled Goldsboro High School is in the 1924 Triangular Debates with Kinston and Wilson as the other two corners. In the preliminaries held in February, Anne Turner, Vir- ginia Ipock, John Jennett, and Thomas Griffin were chosen as principals, with Mannah Shrago and George Romanus as alternates. Mr. Hamilton, Mr. Kornegay, and Mr. Stroud were the judges. It was arranged that on the date appointed, March the 28th, our affirmative team, Anne Turner and Virginia Ipock, should debate Kinston ' s negative at Wilson; and that our negative team, John Jennett and Thomas Griffin, should meet Wilson ' s affirmative at Kinston. As we have been defeated for the last two years, we are trusting to these debaters to retrieve our enviable record of former years. With the experience of some of the debaters and the enthusiasm of all, we hope for no less than a trip to " The Hill " for them. Allons Enfants! The traditions of past years were adhered to in the practice of debating in alt English classes prior to the Triangle Debates. The inter-class contests following this study were conducted differently from the plan followed in 1923, however. Two in- stead of four representatives from each grade were chosen. These teams were 1 assigned in advance definite issu es for study, and they investigated the question from both the affirmative and the negative points of view. At the beginning of each debate lots were drawn to decide which one of the two opposing sides each team should up- hold. This plan was an experiment, but it added not only spice and excitement to the contests but genuine impromptu thinking as well. Freshmen Mary Anna Howard and Hazel Allred debated the affirmative against Juniors Robert Yelverton and Thomas Griffin for the negative. The Juniors won. Seniors John Jennett and Beulah Grady took the negative against the affirmative of Sophomores Gertrude Stith and Robert Zealy. The Seniors won. The winning Juniors debated the negative against the winning Seniors for the affirmative. With the victory acceded to the Juniors, the 1924 Inter-Class Debates closed. The judges for these three debates were: Miss Burton, Mr. Leftwich, and Mr. Mahler. + 4- Debate Resolved, That if debates were banished it would be a ( rent relief; Issue I of my contention ' s clearly stated in the brief. After all the brief is given, introduction follows close, If my mark endures reduction, this wilt be the usual dose. Surely, logical conclusion is the next thing that I see. Oh! — knew it — ' course I ' d do it! — What? Commit a fallacy! For before the peroration I should introduce the proof. Credit not this testimony; call me not a simple goof!

In October, Mr. Sheldon organized the Girls ' Glee Club. They have given two lovely programs in chapel.

The Goldsboro High School Football team were the honor guests at a supper party given at the Cafeteria in Greenville by the Football Team. The boys enjoyed the evening very much and appreciated the opposing team ' s hospitality. A delightful informal dance was given in honor of the Greenville Football Team at the Country Club. Quite a large number of guests were present and danced until a late hour. A large number of the young people of Goldsboro enjoyed an informal dance at Edwina Yelverton ' s following the Goldsboro-Wilmington Basket- ball game. Both teams were there and everybody had a good time. After the Junior play, " Daddy Long-legs, " Mrs. John Spicer enter- tained the entire cast at her home on South William Street. Besides the Juniors, the other guests were Miss Margaret Kornegay and Miss Lucy Lawley, who trained the play ; Mr. Leftwich and Misses Walker and Beasley of the High School; Martha Dortch, prompter; and Mr. Talbot Parker, " make-up ' ' man. Mrs. Spicer was assisted by her sister, Mrs. C. E. Wilkins, in serving a delicious two-course repast. The Kiwanians were model hosts at a dinner party given in honor of the Goldsboro teachers. The room was attractively decorated with suggestions of " Washington ' s Birthday. " President H. M. Humphrey welcomed the guests and turned the program over to Mr. George Freeman. A lively spelling be e was held between the Kiwanians and teachers, the Kiwanians being the winners. In the hotly-contested debate between single men and married men, the married men won and were presented with rattles. Each lady drew a number, the lucky one to receive a corsage. Old-fashioned boutonnieres were given the others as consolation prizes.

" Is a penetrating thesis on the psychoanalysis of the high school pupil-mind as it reacts to the high school teacher-mind. This master treatise is by Professor B. ve Dee, A. W. O. L., S. O. S., Assistant Alienist at The University of Hardnoc and a graduate of The Goldsboro School of Experience. The syllabus is presented below. I. SENIOR ADVICE TO FRESHMEN 1. When a teacher smiles always smile brightly back regardless of the pain the unusual exercise causes the facial muscles. It will be worth while. It may mean the difference between a 2 and a 4. 2. Rise, salute, and give a ringing cheer whenever a football is borne past. 3. The first day you are in high school, look around in dumb awe and be sure to ask what every bell means. 4. If any doubt whatever arises as to whether you should throw shot or chalk in study hall, the best thing to do is to write a letter to your principal, asking his advice. 5. Always ask your teacher s ome intellectual question such as, " What good does this do us? " It amuses the class and makes the period pass more quickly. II. SENIOR ADVICE TO SOPHOMORES 1. Laugh at all faculty jokes even if they are stale, antiquated, pointless. 2. Ye procrastinators, who have dribbled away your time during the year, burn the midnight oil during exam week. 3. Run over to some senior and start a long narrative about how silly and ignorant all freshmen are, especially the ones this year. This will hold the senior spell-bound with excitement. 4. Send in a petition every day; or still better, go individually and collectively to your teacher and give him some good hints on how to improve the school. III. SENIOR ADVICE TO JUNIORS 1. Don ' t dare to let a teacher know that you think her subject easy. Additional work would be the result. 2. When you entertain the Seniors at the Junior-Senior banquet, be sure to remind them that yours is so much better than theirs was. 3. Go around boasting about what a great class 10A is; of course, everybody will agree with you, especially the Seniors. IV. SENIOR ' ADVICE TO INCOMING SENIORS 1. To the incoming Seniors there is but one word to say, and that is, ' " Watch your step, your conduct, and your dignity! " TO DO OR NOT TO DO IN G. H. S., Prof. B. ve Dee, A. W. O. L., S. 0. S.

There I counted fifty sheep In the clouds that drifted by; And I longed to play with them In their pretty field, the sky.

The old ditch was empty; The water no longer flowed there, But the jonquils transformed it Into a place of simple beauty. Elizabeth Newsome, ' 24 BLUE FLAMES Blue flames , with greenish-yellow tips, From beneath the coals, now red and white, Softly, smoothly, swiftly slip; Ever disappearing, never out of sight; They brim the darkness with warming light In cheery solitude. Walter Creech, ' 24 THE FOREST FIRE The night was dark, But in the distance the sky was red; And as we drew nearer The flames swept higher Until the whole sky was lighted. The smell of burnt wood was borne to us on the wind, And the smoke from the forest fire, As a fog, enveloped us as we passed Ellen Gardner, ' 24 MOON SHINE It is on the house top; It is down on the lawn; It will go with the coming of day. But now I see the shadows Lying on the ground; The old elm tree darkens The faintly shining walk-way. Sometimes in the sky A black cloud passes over And curtains off the moon-light; The shawods that I saw Are now one spreading shadow. Frances Morris, ' 24 Page Seventy-six ill sLF c TARBTUR,,fW. FAITH We sway back and forth in the cradle of life, Swayed this way or that by joy or by strife; And often we pause to wonder why God lets us live and lets us die. A Wonder Mind has planned it all, But we struggle on; we rise — we fall, Blind to the reason, and blind to the way, Hoping — hoping — for light some day, Sure that the hand which leads us on Will banish the darkness and bring the dawn; Yet pausing often to wonder why He lets us live and lets us die. Frankie Hartsfield, ' 24 the poet ' s lament I ' ve got to write a poem, But don ' t know what to write, There ' s such a lot of things to choose, But nothing suits me quite. I could write something on the moon, But that ' s been done before And ladies ' eyes and lips and ears, Have had their share galore. The love nest theme is worked to death, And boys do not inspire me, Bananas make me deadly sick, And Barney Googles tire me. I might compose an ode to Spring, Which, as you know, is here. But there is nothing new to say, That I can find— Oh, dear! And now my pencil point is broke, Which means I ' ll stop this time; But though I cannot write a poem, At least I ' ve made a rhyme. Edwina Yelverton, ' 24 THE MIGHTY OAK Within the wood are many trees, And some are big and tall With branches swaying in the breeze, But one looks down on all. I climbed this tree to look around, To see what I could see, And in the distance was the town, And near the town, the sea. I wish that I were such a tree With branches great and strong, Then I could always watch the sea, With surf-lines white and long. Newton Mathews, ' 24 HALF- MOON LAKE I was drifting on the water one late summer day; My thoughts were drifting, too, in a lazy kind of way. The fir-tree tops were pointing like spires of stately churches; The water oaks, and pines, and the white-limbed birches Closed me all around, while above them rose Monadnock, Majestically staring at the wide and lonely dock; And the calm and glassy mirror face of Half-Moon Lake Was looking upward quietly, dreamily awake. Catherine Edgerton, ' 24 4, 4. 4. THE TRAIN PASSES Just the white and boiling smoke In the distance over there, Crawling, clawing, turning, twisting, Forming dragons in the air. Very soon I hear the thunder Of the great, on-rushing wheels, Grating, grinding, grilling, groaning; Then the whistle-warning squeals. Now the smoke and train have vanished, But there ' s music on the track, Singing words that seem to tell me, " Coming back! I ' m coming back! " Mayme Hall Pickett, ' 24 Page Seventy-eight °0u " F. S. " " F. S. Garrett, did you say? Just F. S.? Well, that don ' t pass in this office. Come on and tell me what that F. S. stands for or it may go bad with you. Just F. S., that sounds fishy. " The Wayne County Register of Deeds, a man of almost immovable convictions, devout servant of the public, turned his suspicious countenance in the direction of an extremely uneasy young gentleman. His searching eyes scanned every inch of F. S. Garrett from his uneasy hands to his intelligent face, in which the most casual observer could read evidences of indignation and surprise, a two-fold surprise; first, that anyone should question him, and second, that he himself had never before asked anyone for what the F. S. stood. Since his early youth he had spent most of his time in boarding schools, here and there. His mother had died in his infancy, and his relations with his father had not been as intimate as they might have been. He had always been known as just plain F. S. This he had always accepted without question as his bona fide name, and now to have this cold, unsympathetic, and rather crabbed representative of the law delay the securing of his marriage license on so insignificant a technicality, seemed to him an open insult. With a challenge in his voice the registrar said, " Well, young man, what are you going to do about it? " Hardly able to control his temper, F. S. turned to leave the room. " I ' m not going to do anything about it except go over to Kinston or Smithfield and get a license where they ' re not so derned persnickety. " " Wait a minute, not so fast, " the registrar was almost shouting. " I ' m going to put you where all such criminals ought to be. Maybe — " " But— but— " " Go butt some other billy goat ! You can ' t but an experienced man of affairs like me. Maybe you don ' t know that I ' ve received notice to look out for you. You ' re Ferdinand Saler Garrett, wanted in St. Louis for polygamy. Now you want to add another wife to your Bluebeard list, do you? You won ' t get far then; Josiah Whitcomb is a man of action. " F. S. was too amazed for words. So dumfounded was he by this out- rageous accusation that he stood and mutely listened to this Mr. Whitcomb send the office boy for the police. He attempted further explanation but it was utterly ineffective. The police came, and in spite of his vehement protestations of innocence, took him into custody. He was entirely at sea as to what course to take. The possibility of the delay of his marriage and perhaps even the breaking of his engagement on account of this serious charge, made him almost frantic. He soon de- cided that the best thing to do was to telegraph for his father to come from Raleigh. You may be sure that Mr. Garrett came promptly. He arrived on the 5:30 bus and was met by one of F. S. ' s best friends. Wt C TARPIT T JR J Exactly five minutes later the two found themselves in the sheriff ' s office. " We are very sorry, indeed, I assure you, " the sheriff was saying, " to have to tell you of this grave trouble into which your son has gotten himself. But it is only right that you should know. " " Where is my son? " burst out Mr. Garrett. " You can tell me that later. " " He ' s in the private office. You may go in. " Mr. Garrett opened the ground glass door. He found his son gazing dejectedly out of the window. When the door opened, he turned. " Dad ! I ' m so glad you ' ve come. " " Yes, my boy, but what ' s all this grave trouble I hear about? " F. S. told his father of the events of the morning. Mr. Garrett was highly indignant, but also slightly amused. " Well, well, that ' s a grave charge, but I guess I can make it all right. " He opened the door and told the sheriff to come in. " There has been a serious mistake somewhere, " he began. " But I can plainly see how my son could be mistaken for this criminal. It is true that F. S. didn ' t know his name. This may seem strange to you naturally, but I am going to tell you how it came about. My wife ' s family had a fondness for queer names. The aunt for whom she was named and whose estate she inherited was called Iowa. Two great uncles were named for the states of Vermont and Wisconsin ; Uncle Vernie and Uncle Wis we fondly called them. Uncle Wis was particularly eccentric. " Although he established a girls ' school in a day when the higher education for women was no t so popular and provided for a liberal endow- ment, he never married. " He lived to be quite old, dying only a few months before F. S. was born. His will was as eccentric as himself, truly characteristic. His entire estate was to go to the first relative to be given a name which he set down in his will. Of course, no one expected such a turn and as there were already several little " Wisconsins " named in honor of the old fellow, it was no hard matter to select a name for our baby. In view of the fact that he would receive Uncle Wis ' s fortune, we named F. S. according to the provision in the will. Now I guess everything is settled, isn ' t it? " " But the name, vou didn ' t tell us the name, " said both the listeners together. They leaned forward, the sheriff out of pure curiosity and F. S. because he was eager to learn his own name which he had never known. " Oh. didn ' t I tell vou? " Mr. Garrett laughed at his absent-mindedness. " Your name, my son, is Female Seminary Garrett. " Walter Creech, ' 24 " Author ' s Note: It will be interesting to know that, however ridic- ulous it mav seem, there really is a young man in Georgia who bears this remarkable name. — W. C.
