First, it was intended to arouse greater school spirit; and second, it is an endeavor to remind the citizens of Greens¬ boro that they have a High School. f H n At the very outset the Editors wish it to be understood that whatever personal asper¬ sions may be contained herein are merely pleasantries, and should be taken in a spirit of geiiial humor. €(f €f] J| €ff H •If The Editors hope that the Annual will please the students, they hope it will arouse school pride, but above all they hope it will be instrumental in arousing a greater public interest in the High School. €)] €f| lj 1| G.

H. S. JntErimtiiatc Class i istorp I N the fall of the year 1907 there assembled in front of the old High School what forms the present Intermediate Grade. The High School was new to the greater part of us and we felt very proud that we had reached the object of our ambitions. This year passed very slowly but at last the end of the term came and we found that our hard-worked-for fun and less-worked-for lessons had brought their reward in the form of a small ticket bearing ' the words “Pro¬ moted to the Intermediate Grade.” The next fall the same crowd again assembled in front of the High School. Instead of being Juniors we now occupied the exalted position of Intermediates. We were more industrious than our predecessors for by second recess every Junior had been caught and “bumped.” Soon after school started, our class organized with Hiss Edytlie Muir as president and Miss Maie Dorset! as Secretary. Our class spirit was shown by the short but exciting class war against the Seniors. Each Intermediate was true to the Red and Black and as a result we completely annihilated the Seniors. The election of Marshals next claimed our attention and the following were elected: Charles Denny, Chief; Allan Adams, Max Hendrix. George Westbrook, Maie Dorsett. Louise Thomson, and Guelda Elliott. Once again we are nearing the end of the school term. Some of our faces wear a doubtful look, but we all agree that where there is life there is hope. The Class of 1910 has taken a larger share in High School life than any class has done before. Eight out of the fifteen players who compose the State Foot¬ ball Champions hail from the Intermediate Grade and three of the players on the baseball team are wearers of the Red and Black. Our history does not end here; it cannot at present be written further but it can easily be forseen. Next year into tin 1 High School history and then into the history of our country will go the deeds of the glorious Class of 1910. G. H.

II. S. 28 JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY Class ijistorj T HE class of 1911 started a most successful year on the third day of Sep¬ tember and has been steadily plodding on the road to intellectual wealth. Several additions and subtractions have been made but never from any cause that could be remedied. At present this is the largest class in the High School, being composed of three separate divisions and is “Bigger and Brighter than Ever.” The class stands together through thick and thin (most of it is thin) and is ever ready in its lessons. Our greatest record for being kept in. is two and a half hours. We are not much at class sports, but have done our part in High School Athletics. Some few of our people have strange powers of speech and can keep their mouths at work from 9 :00 A. M., until 2:30 P. M., with no intermission for dinner. Debate is defined in one sense as “to argue.” Many of our number can argue, and some can debate. With as large a gathering as ours we can find many brilliant and diversified traits, but not wishing to appear vain and forward we often hide our lights under a bushel. For this reason the sunlight is still used in the G. H. S. as means of enabling pupils to see clearly. Some may say we are vain but let this disclaimer silence all; we owe it all to the faithful and patient teachers who have controlled the supply to our fount of knowledge since we first entered school.

II. S. 31 Class l tstnrp D URING the past year a much discussed subject lias been, “How much longer could the G. II. S. have existed without the class of 1912. " ' The most common answer has been, “No longer;” though some people thought that popular opinion was rather hard on the old school. This class contains many distinguished members, who have upheld its honor in all things. Grimsley Taylor is the most stylish dude in the whole school. Charles Riddick, our light-weight champion, and Harry Morris are both ex¬ cellent prevaricators but Harry is generally admitted to stand first in that line. Frank Scarboro and John Stone have covered themselves with glory on the base ball field. As a debater Roy Caviness is unequalled. Forrest Murray is an expert lady’s man. Chester Pickett is our undisputed Adonis. Frank Richardson is our best bluffer and ' William Boyst is seldom seen without a piece of candy in his mouth. Houston Hendrix looks like a poet but Le Roy Shift¬ man is one. The class contains very few poor scholars but some of us. doubting the ability of the school to stand the shock of losing the whole class at once, arc thinking seriously of not graduating until 1913. Yet, despite these peculiarities, we are a tine class, and all of us say. from the bottom of our hearts, “Good luck to the. boys of 1912. and may they prosper greatly. ’ ' II ISTOR LAS G. H.

H. S. 33 tragic Comrbp ot ’ j ' |r. Rftsro s-Jon ' cs RASTUS -JONES was the most well-to-do negro farmer in the Cherry Bottom Section. All his life Rax had labored hard to lay up enough to keep him and Dinah in their old age. Now he had ceased to work any long¬ er and was enjoying his accumulated wealth. From cultivating the fields he had turned his attention toward the cultivation of his appe¬ tite. There was but one cloud on Rases gastro¬ nomic horizon—the regular Sunday visits which the district preacher had begun to pay them. Not being strictly religious Ras did not approve of the idea of Rev. Josh’s regular visits, and concluded that it was for no other purpose than to partake of Dinah’s delicious dinners. After thinking the matter over Ras decided to seize the first opportunity to put an end to this imposition. On the next Sunday while Dinah was preparing dinner Ras said. “Say Dinah, I bet yer wont mo’n git dat mutton haf dun ’fore ole Josh cums creepin’ up.” “Done say dat Ras. cause 1 doan want fur Bro. Josh ter be insulted.” says Dinah. “0! I doan ker fer dat,” Ras replied, “Ise gwine ter put a stop ter dem visitations.” Ras hadn’t much more than said this when sure enough Bro. Josh walked up. “Good mornin, Bro. Ras. how yer feel dis perty day,” remarked the minister. “0, I feels turble good,’’ replied Ras, “Come in an set down, I alius likes ter hab you wid ns; better let me hab yer coat’n hat. I ' ll hang era up so’s you’l be mo comfable.” Josh removed his hat and coat and handed them over to Has. As he did so Ras chuckled, saying to himself, “ De worse aint cum yit ole fellow, but thank de Lawd, it aint fur off.” He took the coat and hung it on the rack, but in¬ stead of hanging the hat up he walked to the cupboard, took down a large box of powdered red pepper and literally lined the inside of the hat with it. After he had hung the hat up. he walked out upon the porch and sat down beside Josh. “Say Josh, dis is a powerful hot spell aint it; it has just bunt up my crap so bad dat it aint worth cullin ' . Dey say its turble on fok’es tu. I jus herd vistidday at de store dat three fellers in dis sestion hab been killed by de heat; an powerful funny too. dey wuz all niggers.

Dis is what dey call snnpowder, an ’ when dat cums yer sho gone up less yer go jump in dee creek at once.” All this time Josh was listening attentively, and when Ras had finished he said with a look of horror. “0 doan git sheered, Bro. Josh, it aint goin’ ter hurt you, ‘cause you knos better’in ter git in der sunshine while its so hot. Say, aint dat mutton goin ter go good when Dinah gits it done?” Josh made no reply and after a short silence Ras said, “Josh, do you want ter see de finest watermelon patch in de whole country?” If you do I ' ll sho’ you mine. By de time we walks down in de held an back, de mutton’ll be done and we’ll liab a rabenous apetite. ” Josh consented to go. and Ras walked in the house, took down Josh’e s hat, handed it to him and both walked off. After they had gone a few hundred feet Josh began to complain that his head was burning. At first Ras pretended not to hear him, but later when he complained again R.as said, “0, its jus yer ’maginatlon, dere aint nothin dee matter wid yer. ' ’ Josh didn’t seem much impressed by this, so he lifted his hat and to his consternation a tine brown powder sifted into his eyes and on his clothes. Ras jumped aside as if scared half to death and gasped. “Its snnpowder! you sho gone now. bedog if you aint. You’d better hit fur de creek.” Josh didn ' t need the atlvice for at that instant he threw down his hat, gave a loud shriek, and pitched headlong across the field toward the creek, yelling at every leap Ras stood and watched him until he got to the creek, and when he saw him make a plunge for the water, he turned and walked triumphantly toward the house saying, “I sho put de fixins on dat fool, he aint neber cumin dis way no more.” —Fleming Weaver. EU INC. louol ' f H E r i ade Tor The CrEEK . ! . , A HISTORICAL INCIDENT G, II. S. 35 % Historical Jmtocnt jf N his “Literary Studies” Androine gives a vivid account of the lectures by which Polarino Schezsky in (2317) obtained the chair of history at the Inter-Polar University. We reproduce it verbatum. “Ladies and gentlemen,’’ said lie, “you are already familiar with the lives of Hunter, the second Beau Brummel, Alderman, the eminent disciple of Orpheus the great wit Forney, and the eminent scientists, Preyer and Weaver. For me to describe to you their public career would be insulting, so I have selected for my subject a less well known incident of their youth. In the year 1909, these celebrate! men were all Seniors in that typical ancient high school, the (I. II. S. The next highest class (an obscure crowd, whose very names have been lost in tin oblivion of the ages), became jealous of their dignity as Seniors, and in an evil hour the Powers of Darkness inspired them with the idea of nailing to the tower a tin sign on which was painted their number TO. One dark night, while the very stars hung their heads with shame, this nefarious scheme was carried out and to their mortification the Seniors were compelled to view the disgraceful sign of their ignoble enemies almost at their very door. Greenlougli records that on that day the same portents were visible which had been seen at the murder of Caesar and the fall of Jerusalem. Men such as the Seniors were to become would never endure such an insult as this; and that same day the word went forth to assemble and replace the badge of neffianism with the pure and unsullied ' 09. However, the ancients knew nothing of telepathy, and the order was misunderstood. But a scant half dozen were at hand. Worse than this, their despicable foes, with the cunning of the wicked were awaiting them. Hopelessly outnumbered the Seniors nevertheless made a bold stand. A few, separated from the rest, were forced to dee. but even then their greatness did not desert them. For as he tied, yelling at every step in order to frighten his G. H. S. 36 A HISTORICAL INCIDENT—(Continued) pursuers, Tate is said to have originated the ancient maxim—“It’s no disgrace to run when you get scared.” The other division of the Seniors made a masterly retreat into the Labora¬ tory. and although it ended differently their defense has been compared with that of Thermopylae and the Alamo. Preigny asserts that their valor even sur¬ passed that of the Old Guard of the mythological Napoleon. Surrounded and blockaded by a yelling, desperate host of bloodthirsty enemies they defended themselves with superhuman courage. When other weapons failed they resorted to ammonium hydroxide and ’tis said that by this method they well-nigh extinguished that bold arch villian Dillon. Finally, by a stratagem, a sortie and a rapid retreat they evaded the enemy and escaped. They had removed the tin number and substituted their own, but immediately thereafter the Intermediate had again desecrated the tower with their sign. Nevertheless, although driven from the field the Seniors had captured the “dollar ten” sign. But the disgraceful TO had been replaced, and Seniors were resolved not to endure it. Accordingly, next morning before daybreak they assembled on the spot in full force. Triumphantly they tore down the hated TO and sub¬ stituted the brilliant ’09 of the noble Seniors. While this was going on the Intermediate Joyner, alias Demosthenes, was captured by vigilant Senior scouts but with characteristic generosity the Seniors parolled him wtihout the customary bumping. Soon after, another Intermediate named Adams came racing by on a horse, with loud shouts of derision and defiance. All attempts at capture were futile until Tate, springing suddenly from ambush, captured the horse while the ruler was dismounted. After parading the trophy for a while the Seniors soon be¬ came unable to endure the distress of the former owner, and it was returned. By this time the work had been completed and the morning sun was reflected from the golden letters with a splendour dazzling to the beholders. The noble Seniors assembled gave their war cry in concert, and departed. At tins jiniclme a humane professor interfered. He perceived that the Intermediates were on the verge of being annihilated and deciding that ?. sorry Senior class in 10 was better than none at all he pointed out to the vic¬ torious Seniors the beauty of mercy. To avert further disaster to the 10 s the Seniors yielded, and with magmneent patriotism allowed their glorious ' 09 to be painted out and a beautiful G. H. S. to be substituted. —Newman While. .4 JOKE OS THE SESIORS ' Joke on Clje Mentors N the morning of a certain day in January as the Seniors walked proudly up the steps, with that air which no one but a Senior possesses, they all stopped, and as if by magnetism their eyes weie drawn up. up, until they dared go no farther. They paused only a moment, anti incredible as it may seem that look of Seniorimi had vanished. They saw that they were clearly beaten, and they did not fail to show their mortification, for on the most con¬ spicuous part of the High School building was a beautiful sign, on which in Henley’s best style was painted a TO. Slowly the Seniors continued their way up the stairs, and if a stranger had been at the top he would have had good cause to believe that a band of Catholic monks were coming to reclaim their building. When recess came, the boj s tried their best to smile and laugh, but it was really amusing to see them make the attempt. Some would be grinning, while tears flowed from their eyes, while otheis passed the fifteen minutes by repeated¬ ly singing their class song, entitled, “Long live the Seniors. " The next recess they were not quite so loud. They all assembled in a corner of the yard, and occasionally Preyer ' s voice could be heard above them all, ap¬ parently giving them instructions. We suspected that they wore up to some¬ thing, for knowing them to be the greatest mimics of all ages, we felt sure that they were intending to follow in our footsteps, and place a ’09 where our ' ll) was. And this was exactly what we had planned and wished for them to do, for by so doing, they would recognize the members of the class of 1910 as their superiors. They follow us. and attempt to do what we do. and thus they plainly show that they recognize us as their superiors. We had long suspeebd this of them, but we were not absolutely certain. We could not have been la tter judges of human nature, for the next day sure enough we found that they had walked into our trap. But they must have been as unskilful in the art of painting as they are i.i everything else, for it could be diseoveicd only with the greatest difficulty that the dab of white wash, where our TO had been, was intended for a ' 09. It would have made A JOKE OS THE SEXIOltS—(Continued) G. H. S. •VN a sick man feel good to see those Seniors laugh, for they thought that they had turned the tables on us. But it was the Intermediates that laughed loudest, and longest, for the Seniors had sustained us in our suspicions. But we decided to try them again, so at eight o’clock the following night fifty-six boys from the Intermediate grade met in the school yard. Of course Welborne and Wallace and about a dozen more of the Seniors followed behind us, perhaps to learn the art of painting; but Iioppy said it made him nervous to have so many onlookers that wouldn’t drop a cent in the collection basket. So we took them into the Laboratory, and securely locked them up. Bv eleven o’clock the job had been completed, and a very decent looking ’10 was being closely scrutinized by the old man in the moon, as we separated and made oiu way homeward. Mr. Jackson said that he was sound asleep, about one o’clock, when he was suddenly aroused, by Ins telephone, lie was requested by Mr. Wilson, who lives next to the school to come immediately to the High School building with the keys and release those children, because they were crying so loud that his family could net sleep. It was almost two o’clock A. M., before they were gree ted by Mr. Jackson, who demanded an explanation of their conduct. Putting it to a vote, they unanimously decided to let Murray make the explanation to him, but Murray was unable to do so. and Frank tried to help him out. Finally, they satisfied him, and wlu-n lie told them to run along home, they began to cry again, and said they were afraid, because it was so dark and that they wanted to stay on the school porch until it was light. Mr. Jackson granted their request and remained with them himself. As soon as light came they again climbed up the ladder and put a ’09 in the place of our ' 10, and then they hurried home to wash their faces, in order that all signs of their crying might he removed. That morning they were again smiling, and they thought it was a great joke that floppy’s ’10 had not been permitted to witness the daylight. We were also smiling and when they asked us the cause of our mirth, they could not find words to express their indignation because they had so easily been caught in a trap, and had unintentionally showed their true character.

They accepted the challenge, and on Saturday November 21, at three o’clock all the players, including the subs, were as¬ sembled on the field in full uniform. Both classes were occasionally exchanging smiles (rather the Intermediates gave smiles for grins) just 1o show the friend¬ ly spirit existing between the two classes. In a few minutes Miss -Jones, the umpire cried “Ready—Play” and the ball was hurled between the two captains Eunice Tate and Lydie Pierce. Of course Lydie got the ball, and with her usual good judgment threw it to Edythe Muir the President of the Interme¬ diates. Edythe, then without hesitation tossed the ball to Helen Preyer. the goal man. This was done, because Bones Preyer was the only person Edythe could see, she being the Sister of “A. T. ” The height of “A. T’s” Sister permitted her to thrust the ball into the basket without any exertion. This gave the Intermediates a score. A tri¬ umphant shout rang through the great crowd of Intermediate rooters consisting of Allan Adams. Allan Pearce. Gillespie Thacker, and Curtis Holland. The bail was then taken to the center and Miss .Jones with all sympathy threw the ball to By die again. In jumping to catch the ball one of Lydie’s “pes” struck G. U. S. 42 BASKET BALL GAME—(Continued) poor little “Happy Clary” cracking her upper story from which she has not entirely recovered. The ball was hurled into the air landing on Marianna Justice’s head. The blow mashed her hair flat, and much to her sorrow she has not been able to raise it since. We were all sympathizing with poor Miss Justice when our attention was called to the other end of the field, where we saw “Baby Gretchen” and Louise Thomson engaged in a skirmish. On the ground lay the ball punctured and at this instant Baby Gretchen gave Louise a lift which sent her to the ground. There Louise lay in the same condition as the ball. The Seniors saw what was to be the finsli of the game, so with much pity for the younger class, they thought it better to retreat from the field. They proclaimed themselves victorious and started for the kitchen. The score then stood 600 in favor of the Intermediates. Just as the crowd reached the kitchen steps, a severe battle took place, Frances Fry while endeavoring to keep Ruth Hampton from the door gave her nose a pound which left it in a flat aspect. But Ruth was not to be pushed from the steps for she clung violently to Frances’ nose pulling it until it grew extremely unpleasant for Miss Fry. About this time the Seniors had succeeded in getting into the kitchen and safely locking the door. They jumped on the table yelling at the top of their voices, amid the racket and threats outside. The noise outside was soon stopped by a sudden crash in the kitchen. One of the Seniors opened the door from fright, and behold the Intermediates saw the table, stools,, dishes, and plastering- all broken on the floor. Each member soon took the shortest route for “Home. Sweet Home,” and left Miss Jones broken treasures as they were. On our return to School next morning we saw about twenty-five carpenters buisly at work repairing the damages done. We also heard that Miss Jones, on hearing the dreadful news, was taken violently ill. Miss Eliza Moore had been taken to the Hospital with a fractured skull. After about three months steady work the total cost for repairing was $4,284,416.63. As a result Greens¬ boro has gone into bankruptcy, High Point, Jamestown, and Tliomasville being the creditors.

S. 43 31 tthgl) S’cljool Ccacljers’ Meeting The exciting- cause of the little drama which follows was this notice, sent on! by Mr. Jackson on last Thursday afternoon: “There will he a very important Teacher’s meeting this afternoon imme¬ diately after school.” Time: 2 :3Q to 4:30. Place: The upstairs hall in the High School Building. Dramatis Personae: Mr. Jackson:—Presiding officer and chief speaker. Mr. King:—Leading Dilettante and Follower of Pythagoras. Miss Womble:—Most Mighty Euler of the Latin Verbs. Miss Hampton:—The Scientist. Miss Elliott:—Shakespeare’s Understudy. Miss Jones:—Presiding Genius of the Kitchen. ACT 1. SCENE I. (Enter MLs Womble and Miss Elliott) Miss W.—Well, I wish those men would come on now. T don ' t want to spend the whole afternoon at this meeting. Miss E.—Neither do I. I can ' t. I ' ve got five sets of papers to be corrected right now. (Enter Miss Hampton from Laboratory, Miss Join ' s from Kitchen, and after some delay. Mr. Jackson from Off ice). Mr. J.—Well, if you are all ready, we ll begin the meeting, and dispatch the business with all convenient haste. Where ' s King? Miss II. lie ' s explaining Geometry to Fielding down stairs. He ' said he would be up in two minutes. Mr. J. Just call him. won ' t you. please? We can ' t postpone a meeting of this nature another minute. (Miss Hampton ' s voice floats down stairs, but provokes no response.) Mr. J.— (with prodigious frown). I ' ll go bring him up. (Exit) (Meanwhile, the feminine element yawns, sighs, objects, threatens, until tin ' recalcitrant King is towed in by the outwardly bland Mr. Jackson.) G. H. S. 44 A HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS MEETING—{Continued) Mr. A .— (Settling himself in his chair)—Now, to business! I suppose we will have to grade deportment first. Each of you take your reports, and put down grades as I call them—Ready! 98, 97, 96, 95, 94, 93, 92, 91, Miss E.—But, Mr. Jackson!- Mr. J—90, 91, 92, 93, 94. 95, 96, 97, 98. Miss E.—Listen a minute! Mr. Jackson, I don’t think- Miss W.—That’s just absurd. Strat over again. (’Tis done) Mr. J.—All right! What will you give Allan Preyer? Mr. K.—Give him 85. He wears such loud ties. Mr. J.—IIow about James White? Miss E.—Grade him higher than before. He handed in his composition on •time . Mr. J.—Rennie Spivey? Miss II.—About 80. She’s so quiet that one is apt to neglect her. Jusl show her that much attention. Mr. J.—Sidney Alderman? Miss W.—98, on the strength of his good looks. Mr. J.—Margaret Glenn! I’m going to give her 98 too, because I like the cut of her hair. Ben Rees? Miss E.—99. He’s so interested in my personal affairs, and so extremely quiet. Mr. J.—Allan Pearce? Chorus.—100! Mr. K.—No, take him down to 90. Since he adopted his “specs " he’s growing more worldly wise. Don ' t discourage him by giving him 100. (Thus they proceeded through the long list, discussing the foibles, frailties, and failings of each child). Mr. J.—Now. that that has been brought to a satisfactory conclusion, I have other matters of importance to lay before this august body. I have of late been revolving a scheme in my mind whereby delinquents may be brought to a reckoning without inconveniencing them or me. But before we go into that let me tell you what to-day reminds me of. About fifteen years ago, down on Stony Creek, Bud Johnson and M.andy Simpson went to ride together. They had just reached the bluff near- Miss W.—Great Caesar, Mr, Jackson, we haven’t got all day to sit here and listen to your long-winded stories. A HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS’ MKETIXG —(( ■untinned) G. H. .S ' . 45 Mr. J.— (With a complacent and placating smile), Now, Miss Womble, if I were to consult the innermost machinations of your mental machinery, I am persuaded that there I should discover a palpitating eagerness to hear the con¬ clusion of this Idyll I am about to relate. As I was saying - Miss E.—I’ve got to correct some papers this afternoon. Please hurry! Mr. -J.—Mandy and Bud had just reached this bluff when another vehicle precipitated itself down a steep slope nearby, colliding with - Mr. K.—Just a moment, Mr. Jackson! I was asked to inquire whether we were going to have a ha ' f holiday for the Virginia-Carolina (lame. Mr. J.—NO. SIB ! That is, Mr. Swift hasn ' t said anything to me about lit. Miss W.—And you haven ' t said anything to him, and won ' t. Every other institution in the country gets half holiday. And it ' s utterly unreasonable to expect us to come here and miss the game, and a chance at Grand Stand Seats. Miss E. — It certainly is a shame! Mr. J.—Well now. Miss Womble, we can ' t get along without the light of your presence for even half an hour. The inspiration which you furnish is indispensable to the maintenance of good cheer and creditable work. Hence, in order to allow your influence to permeate as far as possible within the short time left us in the school year, we will continue school until 2:30. as usual, next Monday. Meanwhile, let ' s get back to the subject under discussion. 1 had just reached the climax of my story where Bud and his sweetheart - (Miss Womble, unmollified, walks majestically down stairs, closely attend¬ ed by Miss Elliott with Miss Jones. Down the opposite stairs Miss Hampton goes, discoursing good humoredly to Mr. King about the very important Teach¬ er’s Meeting which has been terminated so abruptly, while floating down to the receding members of tin High School faculty comes Mr. Jackson ' s comforting assurance: “Never mind. I ' ll finish my story at the nexl meeting.’’ But—that story is still running in serial form, and is slill “to be continued in our next.” G. H. S. 46 A CLASS MEETING Cl ass inflecting N order was issued by the president summoning all her subjects to meet m in the classroom where the motto is “Work Without Ceasing” at the usual hour, 6 P. M. After every one had become settled to his or her fancy the presi¬ dent arose and with the sweetest of smiles requested that the minutes of the previous meeting be read if the secretary felt like exercising her voice—if not they might go unread. The business was next brought before the class on a silver waiter by a small yellow kid. When the cover was lifted the business was found to be a petition asking for footstools to be placed for the convenience of the students, as they are all very small but with bright minds. With a few exceptions this class looks like pygmies by the other classes. The feet of these exceptions are always seen before the owner appears and when they enter the schoolroom it requires two knots to be tied in their legs to prevent them taking up all the available space. A motion was then made towards securing the footstools, but on the second¬ ing of this motion Casper Long arose and proceeded to throw a copy of Web¬ ster ' s Unabridged Dictionary at Roy Short, Mr. Long claiming that sofas were far more comfortable than stools. Turning to Miss Flyer, he asked that she make a motion towards getting sofas instead of stools. But his request was unnoticed for Miss Flyer being greatly interested in a certain James Black, declined to answer. “Cute” Germany was next called on but he refused and Edward Rootsler was called. Upon rising Mr. Rootsler said he was unprepared to make an address at that meeting, but that Eleanor Less and Douglas Blunt were carrying on a flirtation very becoming to their style of beauty. This notable speech called attention to a Miss East and a Mr. W. Dipper who were spooning in the rays of a gas jet. George Eastriver becoming tired proposed an adjournment, but at this time re¬ freshments were served, consisting of liquid veneer, broom-straws, and oak- leaves. Miss Rivers proposed an adjournment which was ably seconded by Miss Stew. The meeting closed with a solo by Mr. Leaver assisted by Miss Plow. Grace Hiatt. SENIOR HYMN G. .

It was a calm and peaceful night, The wavelets, bright with silvery light. The man in the moon. Then started a tune; For his coaching is out of sight. The lover with actions so shy, Thought only of her close by, Then clasped the wee hand. And gave the command; That she look him straight in the eye. Her lovely eyes resting on him, Filled his heart with love to the brim, So he tried to kiss That dear little miss; And tipped the canoe to the rim. But alas! their lips never met, The man in the moon’s laughing yet; Their love was soon quenched, The lovers were drenched, For the blamed old canoe upset! Edythe R. Muir LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT G.

After the roll was called and every body had the window, as the reflection of the sun on the Hadean icebergs hurt his blind eye. When this was accomplished and reported uncompleted the Noble Grand Liar arose and proceeded to relate veraciously the following adventure: At the end of a long hill in Greensboro, North Carolina, there is a very dangerous precipice, over which every year thousands of people go to a horrible destruction. Recently, as I was promenading this street with my illustrious friend, Gulliver Fry, to our horror we saw a baby carriage, containing one of the prettiest babies 1 have ever seen, start rapidly down the hill. The nurse, who had been paying very little attention to her charge, got one glimpse of the rapidly descending carriage and then shrieked, “Oh! Lord, save the Presi¬ dent’s baby. Oh! what will Mrs. Guggenslacker do to me?” Realizing what was happening, Gulliver and I started in pursuit of the child which was quickly and surely approaching a horrible death. We ran as we had never run before but still the carriage gained on us. With one more desperate burst of speed we charged down upon the carriage: but, alas! though we were fast gaining the carriage was now but a quarter of a mile from the brink of ruin. “Slip, sizz, zing, screech! Oh! what was that?” AVe were within ten feet of the precipice. AVe were going so fast that alas! too late, unable to check ourselves—over the precipice Gulliver and I went down, down, down. AVe read of our horrible death in the morning paper, and of our extra¬ ordinary bravery. But what do you think? That little baby was a trick baby and had thus enticed many people to destruction. All he did when he got to the edge of that terrible precipice was to slap on the brakes and wait for the nurse to come and roll him up the hill. CHIRPERS G. H.

Statistician’s Report The Organization can now boast of the three greatest rascals in human history. Recent investigations show that Nero, Borgia and King John combined can boast of but 11,987 acts of devilment, whereas Kirkman. Tate, and Scar¬ boro are known to have committed at least 20,000. If all the pebbles and cinders tossed at unsuspecting victims by James White were collected, it has been estimated that there would be enough to com¬ pletely cover up the foot of Mr. Hendrix. It has been ascertained that Mr. Merritt has definitely given up sprouting wings and has transferred his attention to the culture of a. moustache. The most minute observer has been unable to discover a single instant in which Willard Eutsler has been perfectly still, and it has been ascertained that he has kicked the footboard out of forty-seven iron bedsteads, he being as active while asleep as while awake.

The world’s Long Distance Talking Championship has been won by Ruth Yanstory. Her maximum record at 500 yards is 481 words per minute. The latest statistics show that the High School has yet another source of pride—the tardies. James Trogdon leads, with a record of 79 tardies out of 81 days present. As an excuse for not being tardy the remaining two days he urged that once he fell asleep in his desk and slept till next morning, thus being unavoidably on time. The other time he was so late for the day before that he did not arrive till 8 o’clock next day. Douglas Sharpe has also made a very creditable record—60 tardies in 75 days. The only Itemedy G. H.

Several years ago the Greensboro High School took the lead and made determined efforts to estiblish among the High Schools of the state a Public School Athletic League. Although we have not yet permanently established this league we have so pushed forward the spirit of athletics that almost every large High School in the State meets another at least once a year in some athletic event. Our past efforts in athletics have been crowned with success and our records are higher than those of any High School in the State. We have held the title of State Football Champions for two successive years and during these two years we have lost only one game. This year’s baseball team is fully up to our usual standard and from present indications we will win the baseball championship. This year an effort was made to establish track athletics and basketball in the High School but we have been successful in neither. Although not a success this season we have paved the way for their permanent establish¬ ment in our High School, and next year we hope to be as successful in these as in our other athletic sports.

L TilLE TICS — (Con tinned ) A DRAW Thrilling Contest Between Dago Preyer anti Bill Grimsley What’s The Odds on I)a£o a E V E R A L days ago an interesting bout was pulled off between Dago Preyer and Bill G-rimsley before the sport-loving people of this com¬ munity. Both men entered the ring promptly at 3:15 and prepared for the bout. Betting ran high, the odds being placed on Dago. The match was by far the most interesting that has been pulled off in the local ring this season. THE FIGHT BY ROUNDS ROUND 1 Both growl; Dago the fiercest. They sparred a little, prayed a little, growled a little more and killed each other with looks. Then the fight proper began. Bill lead off and slammed his left binocular ATHLETICS—{Continued) G. H. S. do against Dago’s masticating apparatus. The Greaser fell to his knees but quickly rose and met Bill’s bearlike hug with a terrific uppercut. For some minutes they rolled over and over on the ground scratching, biting and kicking. At length they struggled to their feet and breaking the chainlike hold Dago pro¬ ceeded to close one of Bill’s eyes. At this interesting moment Inspector King of the Thirty-second Street Police Station appeared at the ring-side and ordered the bout to cease. Both men left the ring and Dago challenged Bill to finish the match. Bill refused and set out for home. Dago hailed him telling him bravely that he would not accept his refusal to fight. “I told you that I was not going out of my way to fight you,” returned Bill. “Then here in the presence of the upturned faces of this vast assembled multitude I call you a coward,” hissed Dago. Bill speedily hid himself and happy Dago after a theatrical pose and a tragic “Once more I ask you.” for effect, homeward wended his weary way. AX event of great interest occurred some days ago in the form of a talk¬ ing match between the Senior and Intermediate Grades. The Seniors were represented by Aliss Anna Williams while Miss Guelda Elliott championed the Red and Black. It is needless to say that the Intermediates won, .Miss Elliott speaking 17,843 words in five minutes against 17,842 by Miss Williams, -lust another scalp added to the already long list of Intermediate victories. ALTHOUGH still a colt, Lunsford Richardson ' s thoroughbred. Starvey, is pacing around the oval in fine shape. Wh expect Richardson and Starvey to win new honors for the Greensboro High’s in the near future. CUTE HOLLAND has received a challenge from Gobbo Armfield for a ten round bout before the All Sports Club on May 2nd. Gobbo Armfield is an aspirant for the heavy weight honors of the school. Cute Holland is the same determined little Cute who fought the famous Jim Jeffries to a standstill several years ago. Local fight promoters are anxious to see these two artists draw con¬ clusions and are taking subscriptions for the purpose of getting the match.
