THE GUILFORDIAN VOLUME I. ATHELETICS Soccer. The soccer goals have been put up this past week and many fel lows are coining out regularly every afternoon to play the game. As soccer is a comparatively new game in this part of the State, it will not be out of place to mention its "reason of being," and some of its advantages. Soccer is primari ly advantageous in that it furn ishes a good out-door sport during the late fall and winter months. It is a game that is very easy to learn, does not require any prelim inary practice before playing, and above all you do not have to be a "beef" in order to play it: satisfac torily. It does require and develop nerve, speed, endurance and "wind," so that it is valuable to the base ball and basket gall play ers as a means of keeping them in condition. Although the hope that another college in the State may give us a game later in the season has brought out quite a few men—it is expected that each man should take some form of exercise every afternoon. If you do not play bas ket ball or tennis come out and play soccer. You will soon learn the game. Others are learning it now and it is only by knowing the game and getting up some enthusi asm over it that soccer will ever become an intercollegiate sport at Guilford. Cox Hall Wins. Cox Hall and Archdale met again Saturday evening in friend ly rivalry on the basket ball floor to decide which could produce the best team. Both of the dormitories were well represented, and the teams gave a good exhibition. Al though only the simplest signals could he used in such a game, t!e team work was comparatively good, and several beautiful shots were made. Semans played his usual fast game, and was able to escape his guard several times or. account of his quickness. Price also made some very pretty shots, and helped run up the score. Wood starred for Archdale, making the majority of the points for his team, yet he was aided by the good passing of his men. But the Cox GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., NOVEMBER 5, 1914. HALLOWE'EN SOCIAL Never has there been a social a I Guilford in which (lie students co operated so thoroughly with the social committee as at the Hallo we'en party given Saturday night, ()ctober :Ust. At Ihe beginning of the week posters announced that the social would be ;i masked one ami that prizes would be given for the best costumes. At 8 o'clock the crowd of expec tant merry-makers assembled in the festively arranged gymnasium. Pumpkins, black cats and autumn leaves were in evidence every where. Old Hallowe'en games had been arranged, such as blowing out the candles, bobbing for ap ples and touching the prophetic saucers. Such an array of figures as we did have. There was Mother Goose, The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe, Jack and Jill Mary with her Lamb, Higglety Pigglety and several more of the Mother Goose family. Besides these there were clowns, gypsies. Chinese and Japanese girls, soci ety ladies of a century ago and modest Quaker maidens, while around these figures hovered ghosts and several ladies (?) whose coarse voices and mast uline -1 ike figures caused suspicions glances from the onlookers. At length when the judges after a great deal of critical examina tion had delivered the prizes, re freshments were served. Hall boys showed up better ;ill around, and steadily increased their lead. The final score was :(> to 18. The positions of the pi a vers were as follows: Cox Hall. Archdale I'riee K\ F.. . I>. Smith* Semnns L. F Wood Mason**" .... C Moore I'inkle If. (J ]{. Smith Mas ten L.

After Dr. Byrd had offered prayer a quartette rendered an ap propriate song. He then evpressed his appreciation of student life and of the opportunity of being here, lie took as a topic of his dis course "Life The great mission of -Jesus is found most satisfactor ily in "1 am come that ye might have life and that ye may have it more abundantly." We must learn to know what it is to live if we would appreciate Christ's mission. Dr. Byrd then brought in the defi nitions of life from a biological •md philosophical view showi ig that these were not adequate. lint that the definition of what it is to live fully is found in "He that hath the Son hath life and he that 1 ath not the Son hath not life." Spencer's definition is pedantic and Drummond's development of Spencer's does not include full life. Life must be developed physically, intellectually and spiritually in ol der for us to live fully. By analysis and synthesis we live intellectually. We learn to see the beautiful and hold corre spondence and appreciate it. There is a large field in beauty from which many people are cut off rm account of not being able to appre ciate the beauty of (Sod's handi work. To live spiritually means to live in God's realm and to see llis beau ty. We don't see truth as our .Mas ter saw it. Me saw the bottom of things, we see to the bottom of our thoughts. We are more defective in spiritual life than any other; we are not tuned up to the point of constant communication with God. We can live long and little, s as to leave no hole in society, so as to hold no correspondence with the best which life all'ords. Shall we live a narrow life of selfishness in our own little realm? We must not cut ourselves off from the best Y. W. C. A. NOTES The annual play of the V. W C. A. will he given about the middle of November.
