THE GUILFORDIAN VOLUME I. BASKET BALL PROMISING STUART COACHING. Since Poak has had the basket ball squad in charge for the past month, lie has developed a team that will surprise those who see !! in action for the first time. The boys work together as one man, so that the team work is as good as it has been in the past seasons, and the passing has reached a very creditable stage. With thn rapid change Guilford is much more optimistic, and the whole student body is behind the team to support it to the last. The Cabinet has chosen W. F. Brinkley cheer leader, and with bis natural ability in this line he hopes by the co-operation of the whole student body, to develop a system of cheering that will be far better than it lias been in the past, and will be a more substan tial support to the team. At this time the first team can not be given because it is entirely a matter of who plays the best that will determine the positions for the men. Benbow Jones has made great improvement since last year as sub., and is playing an excellent forward. Lawrence Stuart is a true shot at the goal, and with his passing ability, aids the whole team. Perhaps the man that has made the greatest improvement is G. Groome. He has developed into a good center, is passing well, and a good shot. Futrell is playing a good game at guard, and keeps with his man in splendid style. Semans is one of the best pass ers 011 the floor, and is exception ally fast. Hinkle has been absent for tin 1 past week on account of illness at home, and may not return until after Christmas. Short plays both a good guard and center, and is a valuable man. Dalton Smith is playing a good forward, and has a good eye for shooting. Wood is improving and plays a good game all round. Price has made a great improve ment, and is quick on the floor. Stuart Coaching. Poak left for the University of North Carolina Dec. 1, coach at that place. Since then Luther Stuart has accepted the position of physical director here, and from the way he goes at the work he promises to make an excellent coach. Like Doak, Stuart has GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., DECEMBER 9, 1914. boon a student here, and is ac quainted witli the place. Those who have been acquainted with Iho college for the past few years know of his fast work both in base ball and basket ball, lie was the man around whom such a fast infield was built, and also was one of the best guards who have (ever represented (inilford. Besides this, Stuarl has had ex perience in professional ball, be ing a member of the Winston-Sa lem League for the past two years, lie now has in charge the basket ball squad, and is fast rounding it into shape, and working hard to have the team in perfect condition by the time the season begins. Stuart is popular here, ami we feel sure that he will be a great aid in athletics. GIRLS' BASKET BALL. On Friday evening after I he So cieties had adjourned, the Old Maids of Guilford College actual ly had the nerve to play the Flirts. At the sound of the whis tle a hard fought battle was be gun. During the first half the Old Maids seemed equal to the Flirts, the score standing 0 to 7. But in the last half the Old Maids, not being able to keep up their juvenile activity, did not hold their ground. Evelyn Briggs starred for the Old Maids as forward. She shot four field goals and had she had the support that Tot ten Moton and Ellon White had the score would have been more even. She scored all eight points made. Totten Moton did exceptionally good work for the Flirts in shoo; ing field goals and fouls. Filer White, the other forward, shot one free goal and two field goals. Maude Lassiter, their center, shot one field goal. The guards on both sides did good work. The final score was 1 1 to 8 in favor of the Firfs. The line-up was as follows: Old Maids. Flirts. A. Morris ....11. F 10. White I']. Briggs ... .L. F T. Moton M. White O M. Lassitei B. Pike R. G...5. McGeehee M. Freeman..L. G...M. Andrews Mr, Krnest Lash ley, of Golds boro, visited his cousin, Miss Ed gerlon, during the holidays. President L. L. Ilobbs attended the North Carolina Teachers' As sembly held at Charlotte during the Thanksgiving holidays. REV. CLYDE TURNER AT Y. C. A. On last Thursday evening at the regular meeting, Rev. A. Clyde Turner, pastor of the First Bap tist church of Greensboro, spoke to a large crowd of the boys. He chose as his subject 'The Pur pose of Life." The question for every one to confront is what shall he do with that God-given life. Life is con trolled bv one central thought, passion or ideal and Ibis deter mines our career as does the cur rent the course of a stream. No man is any better than bis heart's purpose. Individuals are con trolled by different passions or thoughtsjsonie have the passion for money, others the passion for pleasure, and others still other passions. Paul before bis conversion on the road to Damascus had as bis controlling motive the perseeu tion of Christ, but when changed he could say, "For me to live is Christ" and henceforth he was de voted to the great work of serving Christ. Life is short, generations swiftly pass away unnoticed. Life is so uncertain—today's opportun ities are all that we have at our command and these are soon gone never to be recalled. We cannot return to the past. In view of these things the serious question is what are we making of this life? Our eternal estates are what we make here on earth and in pro portion to our service here will our reward be in eternity. Every life to be a success must be linked with God and any life that is not linked with Christ cannot suc ceed. The Association appreciates the visit of Rev. Mr. Turner and everybody was highly pleased with his discourse. A GUILFORD DINNER.
