PROGRESS OF ATHLETICS
Perhaps it would be wise to let
the subscribers know at the outset
that it is the intention of this de
partment of the GUILKOUDIAX to
give its readers detailed accounts
of each inter-collegiate game of the
various sports as they appear in
their season. During the time in
tervening between these it shall
give weekly accounts of the pro
gress of the various teams and
comment upon the individuals;
that those not at college may ob
tain an intimate knowledge and
note the progress of the men who
compose tin 1 teams.
Ernest i. Shore, class of 'll,
is taking post-graduate work,
and we consider ourselves exceed
ingly fortunate in having such a
man as Shore as assistant coach in
baseball. His knowledge of pitch
ing will be of great value to (lie
young pitchers now rounding into
form, and should be the cause of a
great improvement in our pitching
staff. Shore first went to the Bnl
timore Internationals, but had
only remained there a short time
when he was purchased by the Bos
ton lied Sox. Since then his work
as pitcher has been of such a char
acter as to bring from the manager
of the Meveland team the exclama
tion that Shore was the best pitch
er who has broken into the big
show since Johnson first came to
The two-game series between
Elon and Guilford lias been can
celled on account of inclement
weather and the lateness of the
season. But the boys are still at
work when the weather permits.
The coach has been putting the
squad through practice in sliding
and an improvement along this
line is noticeable, especially among
the new fellows. Among the prom
ising material seen thus far are

P. Ilinkle, E. B. Carroll and C.
The basket ball squad is gaining
in numbers as the weather be
comes cooler, and many of the new
men have shown improvement al
ready in shooting and passing.
Thus far those that give promise
of making good are D. Smith, T.
B. Semans, M. 1\ Mason, R.
Groome, T. A. Price, R. Smith, (J.
Masten, .1. 11. Beeson, Ezra Moore
and S. Cameron. The manager

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., OCTOBER 21, 1914.
Y. W. C. A.
The regular Thursday evening
prayer meeting of the V. \V. \ A.
was led by .Mary Inn Shamburger
on (lie subject, "Are You Bal
anced?" The Bible lesson was
taken from (lie fifth chapter of St.
Matthew and Daniel 5:27, "Thou
art weighed in (lie balances, and
art found wanting."
The leader brought to our minds
some noble men and women who
have lived, and are now living the
balanced life, and showed how few
of us really do this. She said that
we might make all sacrifices nec
essary and do all the duties assign
ed to us and still be failures. Thai
we might be well rounded people
in all, and then—be failures. "Do
we balance in our daily lives with
those about us? We may come up
lo what our parents and our
church require, but do we come up
lo what (iod has intended? We
must determine (o do our very best
in order lo fulfill the great plan
that (iod has worked out for each
of our lives—
"A perfect woman nobly planned.

with the strong team from Trinity
College on Dec. 17. This is one of
the fastest aggregations in the
Stale and our men should begin
early in order to be in good condi

The men who have entered the
tennis tournament for the 'varsity
team are J. 11. Brown, J. D. Moore,
T. A. Price, (5. Masten, I*. V. Fitz
gerald and A. L. Riddick. The
first round has not been completed
so that it is impossible fo give any
idea of the result.
This year, as well as in the past,
some inconvenience and worry, to
say nothing of expense, has been
caused by those on the ball dia
mond taking the balls to their
rooms at night and failing to bring
them back the next afternoon. We
should not be so careless as to for
get things like this, for it is a
great expense to the base ball de
partment and in fact we are really
taking money from our own pock
ets, since we have to pay for them
through the Athletic Association.
Then let us be more thoughtful,
and when we do take the balls in,
bring them back the next after
