HOWLING VS. CHEERING.
On last Friday night the girls
gave a splendid exhibition of bas
ket ball skill in the gymnasium ,
on the same night, at the same
time, and in the same place the
boys gave the most uncalled IV.
exhibition of wngentlemanly be
haviour that hits characterized
their conduct during the entire
year. To any unbiased mind both
statements will be recognized as
true. Skilful passing, clever
shooting, careful guarding, and
all round fast work on the part ol
both teams establish the truth
of the first statement. Vociferous
yelling, barbarian shrieks, wild
animal cries, hoots and jeers were
a partial return which the girls
received for their skilful efforts •
a fact which proves conclusively
the second statement. Now against
the well-organized cheering the
GUILFORDIAN has not a word to
say. Such was gentlemanly and
respectful and be it far from the
purpose of this paper to discour
age any legitimate expression of
athletic enthusiasm. On the con
trary it greatly desires to en
courage such expressions. But
with quite a bit of the so-called
enthusiasm which was expressed
in certain parts of the cheerintr
section in the form of shrieks,
hoots, jeers and boorish rooting
the GUILFORDIAN has no sympathy.
Such conduct was not, to say the
least, gentlemanly. No gentle
man would give vent to such
noises; they could only come from
the animal, not the human ele
ment in the crowd. And to any
casual observer this fact was obvi
ous. A sense of common decency,
not to say a gentlemanly respect
fo** the players would have p.e
veated such an exhibition of + lie
lack of culture. Who would think
in a rational moment of putting a
huge 3G-inch megaphone to a girl's
ear and then howling with all the
power of one's lungs? Truly the
leaven of culture has yet to do Us
work. A repetition of such con
duct should be followed by the
most stringent possible action on
the part of Ihe Student Council
It is not necessary to add that
only a small part of our number
indulged in such outbursts, but
their actions were so violent as to
characterize the whole crowd.
Within a few days we are go
ing to hold some mass meetings
to arouse enthusiasm and organ
ize our cheering for the basket
bull team. Every man in Co-lege
should be present, learn the y'iis,
:inl take his part' in every otto of
them. It is our team and let us
make it realize that every single
student is behind it every minuv;
that its defeats are our defeats,
ils victories, our victories.
Lei lis refrain from all howling
and jeering, all outbursts of a per
sonal nature. Let lis follow the
cheer leader, and cheer with him.

An Alumnus Approves of Student
I have noticed in the columns
of the GUILFORDIAN that student
government has been established
in part at Guilford. This has
been long needed, not that the
governors have not been efficient,
for they certainly have filled their
post well, but that in such an in
stitution as Guilford now is, the
power of setting standards cer
tainly remains with the student
body. Guilford is not a "prep"
school, and should not be govern
ed as such.
College we all admit is a train
ing institution and certainly one
should be trained to rely on one's
self. At Guilford, the student is
closely watched one day, and the
next is given a diploma and is
sent out into the world alone. If
Guilford has faith enough in her
sons and daughters to send them
out as graduates, then why doesn't

she trust tliem more in the class
room? Confidence certainly
should he; fostered in college life.
All business is based on the con
fidence of one man in another. If
the student is suspected and con
stantly watched while in the
class room and during examina
tions, he most certainly goes out
a weaker man. The step made
toward the Honor System is a
good one. 1 believe that no great
er good could come to Guilford
than that necessarily following
the adoption of the Honor System
by the four college classes.
I believe thai not only I lie over
sight at athletic games and of the
general deportment should be giv
en into the hands of the Council,
but that the class room work and
examinations should also be based
on the Honor System. Student
government is a great credit and
strength to any institution. The
foremost colleges and universities
of America have already adopted
such measures. I hope the day is
not far off when Guilford also
will have faith enough in her stu
dents to give them this cherished
right. ALVA E. LINDLEY, 'OB.
