THE GUILFORDIAN VOLUME I. 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 Washington. 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 I). Hodgin, B. Groonie, -I. Reddeck, L. Strayhorn, F. H. Morris, I'. V. Fitzgerald, M. Stuart, F. 11. Men denhall, E. B. Moore, D. Coltrane, T. Dupree, T. Zachary, R. Thayer, P. Ilinkle, E. B. Carroll and C. Farlow. 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 has not yet completed the schedule but announces that our first game will be played on our home floor 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. To warn, to comfort and com mand.'' 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 tion for this game. 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 noon. The following have been elected College marshals: Fred Morris, chief, Archie Riddick, Floy Lassi ter, Robt. Mitchel and .Josephine Coble. Y. M. C. A.
