THE GUILFORDIAN VOLUME I. ATHELETICS Guilford Defeats Elon in Scrub Game. The Guilford kid team defeated the Elon kid team here Saturday night in a very interesting game of basket ball. The teams were evenly matched, and the closeness of the score held the interest throughout the game. At the end of the lirst half Guilford was in the lead by two points, the score being 10 to 8. During the second half Elon came within one point of a tie sev eral times, but Guilford was able to keep in the lead during all the game. Both teams made more points during the second half. Wood and Price starred for Guil ford. Each shot four field goals, while Wood shot five foul goals. Smith, Lee and Finch each made one for Elon, the other points be ing gained on fouls.

In order to produce a strong, fast team each year in basket ball a college must have some means of training new men who are not able to make the 'varsity squad (In 1 first year. There are several ways in which the various colleges accom plish this, but one of the most ef fective methods is by a basket ball league. That is, let the boys in terested in this game divide them selves into teams according to the floor on which they room, the dor mitories, the section of the dormi tory, or any other way that is ac ceptable to all. Then arrange a schedule so that the game may come at stated intervals, and keep the percentage of the games won and lost, so that they may appear each week in the columns of THE GUILFORDIAN. Thus, a friendly riv alry would be created that would heighten the enthusiasm of the majority of the students in this phase of athletics, and would be a means by which material for the 'varsity team would be constantly developing. Doak Now Coaching. The athletic cabinet consider themselves exceedingly fortunate in again securing the services of GUILFORD COLLEGE, N Chas. G. Doak as head coach in basket ball. In the past as a stu dent, "Chick" has helped win many a hard fought battle for Guilford. And later, returning as coach, he has produced some of the fastest base ball and basket ball teams that have ever represented any North Carolina college. His ability to choose men who develop info first team players has been of invaluable aid in building up the teams. For this reason we look forward with (lie steadfast belief that Guilford, with Doak at the head, will be represented by a strong team in basket ball. Have You Paid? Athletics at Guilford are con trolled and financed by the stu dent body, and it is the duty of each man, who considers himself a worthy student, to support the Athletic Association. A small fee ot one dollar is charged per term and every man in college should show enough pride in his college teams to be willing to contribute this freely. The Association cannot buy ath letic supplies, cannot have teams of which we shall be proud, cannot keep tilings moving unless you pay your athletic fee. Do not let the treasurer have to visit you but once! The men who are running the Association get nothing for their work—not even your consid eration very often. Let us look at (his proposition squarely in the face, and say that Guilford will not be lacking in anything that goes to make strong teams this year, that is, if my support will prevent it! Furthermore you are not sup posed to use the Gym, the soccer field, the base ball Held or goods, or the tennis courts until you have paid this fee. There is a Vigilance Committee appointed to look after this matter, so if you have not paid your dues, do not be sur prised if you are asked off the field at any time. This is only fair. Do you expect to use the goods which other students have bought and be a parasite? Then resolve to support the Athletic Associa tion and make Guilford keep up her usual place in athletics this year. Guilford, like every other col lege Athletic Association, awards to the 'varsity men of the various teams the privilege of wearing the college letter These men are due at least some distinction for their successful efforts, but do we at Guilford accord the letter proper respect? If anybody can wear a "G," as has been the case in the C., NOVEMBER 12, 1914. THE ENTRANCE GATEWAY Work has begun on the new en trance gateway —the gift to the college of the class of 1901). Al ready the front of the cam pus is taking on a new appearance. Mur ing the .summer, prepai at ions for this work steadily advanced. The road leading from the old post office northwest, ]>ast the graded school building, has been changed so that it now begins at the lower corner of the brick store and comes into the old road direct!\ west of the new meeting house. My this change the south boundary of the college grounds gets the full benefit of a square front, uncut with such numerous roads and by roads us formerly. In this plan of improvement the gateway will lie- located one linn dred feet from the Greensboro road. My rounding off the corners of the two adjacent fields the en trance to the gateway will be tri angular in shape. This work has been largely completed so that by constructing the gate the front of the grounds will be ready for the walks and grass. The gateway itself will consist of two brick columns eleven feet in height, one on each side of the road, which is to retain its present width. The columns will rest on granite foundations and'will be capped with granite. Two walks are to be constructed, one on each side of the road ten feet from the road running parallel with it to the point where a road turns in the direction of Archdale Hall. Bach of the walks is to have two smaller columns—one on each side —built in similar manner to the large ones. Between each large column and the small column on the inside of each walk there will he a connecting wall of brick. Placed on this wall, to the left as you enter, a bronze plate will bear the dates 1837-1914. On the con needing wall to the right a similar plate will have the words, (Mass of 1909. In this work the class is follow ing the plan of Mr. Warren H. Manning, of Boston. The contrac tor is Mr. Frank Watson, whom many Guilfordians will remember as a fellow-student. It is expected that the work will be completed by the first of December. past, is there any need to work for a letter? If you have not won a "G," you are not supposed to wear one. Take it off and do not sail under false impressions! Y. W. C. A. NOTES The regular mid-week prayer meeting of the Y. M. C. A. was eondueted last Thursday night by Dr. (■. O. Meredith. He based his talk on the temptations of Christ in the Wilderness. All the seats were taken and Dr. Meredith's talk was listened to with a great deal of interest. Thus far the average attendance of the study body in the dormi tories at the Y. M. A. meetings has been between So and 00 per cent, and it is to be hoped that this high average can be maintain ed during the remainder of the year. Won't you help to keep it up? V. W. C. A. PLAY COMING. On Saturday evening, November 21, at 8 o'clock, in Memorial Hall, the Y. W. ('. A. will present "Breezy Point,'' a comedy in three acts. This is a bright, amusing little farce and well deserves the patron age of all Guilfordians. On and after Nov. I.G tickets may be secured from Gladys High till, or at the hall on the evening of the entertainment. Tickets, 25 and doc. SONG RECITAL. A recital of unusual note is scheduled for Saturday evening, November 14, at 8 o'clock in Me morial Hall, where .Miss Dawson presents Mr. Hugh A. Stewart, 'ld. of Laurinburg, assisted by Mr. Harry On*, of Charlotte. All Guilfordians who have heard .Mr. Stewart will be glad to hear of his reappearance at Guilford. The evening promises to be a real mu sical treat. LITERARY SUPPLEMENT.
