Basket Ball—A. & M. at Guilford, Sat., Jan. 16, 8 P. M.
A. & M. COMING
What promises to be one of the
l>est games of the season will be
played here next Saturday night,
Jan. 16, when we meet the strong
quintet from A. & M. College.
A. & M. has played on our floor
many times before and judged
from the past, coupled with what
we have learned of her team this
year we may expect a clean, man
ly and skilful performance—a
hard fight from start to finish.
Our team is beginning to show
some real basket ball skill and we
are safe in predicting lliat the
boys will look after Guilford's
part in the contest.
All who wish to see a game with
such bright prospects for a real
game be on hand at the "gym"
Saturday night and see old Guil
ford add another to the list of vic
tories over the A. & M. College.
We also have other good games
in view. Wake Forest will be
here Jan. 23, Atlantic Christian
College Jan. 27, Carson-Newman
Jan. 30, and the last game here
with Elon on Feb. 3.
Let us all come out and give the
team and Athletic Association
our support. Guilford must main
tain her past reputation.
The two weeks' vacation gave
the basket ball squad quite a rest,
but the boys were back at it again
as soon as they reached school.
They are showing a marked im
provement over the first part of
the season, and an effort is being
made to get better team work than
was evident in the first games.
The boys are handling the ball bet
ter, and also pass more quickly
and with greater accuracy.
Hinkle, who was absent a few
weeks before Christmas on ac
count of illness at home, has re
turned and is a strong addition to
the squad. He plays an excellent
guard, and is fast rounding into
a. good shot. As one of the fastest
men on the floor, he covers an
amazing amount of the floor, yet
plays a close guard.
At the beginning of the new
term some very promising mate
rial has entered, so that we may
expect to see some good new ma
terial developed under Stuart's
supervision. Stuart is working
hard and consistently with the
team, strengthening the weak
points, and building a formidable
machine. He has a good knowl
edge of the fine points of the
game, and is able to show them
GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C„ JANUARY 13, 191^
what he could not otherwise teach
Remember, boys, Hint it is up
to ns to fight Saturday night just
as hard as the team, and by all
means keep up the "pep.'' Stand
behind the team, and you will be
surprised at the help you will give
them. We want everybody out,
all the girls included, and do not
forget to root.

Sophomore debate Saturday night
SOPHOMORES WIN DEBATE
On last Saturday evening at 8
o'clock the second of the series of
interclass debates was held in
Memorial Hall between the Soph
omore and Freshmen representa
tives. The atlirmative of the ques
tion: Resolved, That, the United
States should maintain a position
as one of (lie three greatest naval
powers o! the world, was ably up
held by i lie Sophomore team com
posed ot' .Jesse P. Garner, lthesa
L. Newlin, and Harrell Budd;
while the negative was as strong
ly defended by Ira G. Hinshaw,
Raymond A. Smith and David E.
Coltrane. The debate was intense
ly interesting from start to finish
as i lie argument of both teams
was logically arranged and well
brought: out by the individual
The atlirmative began the de
bate by contending first, that the
United States has more coast line
to defend than any other nation
in the world; that we have many
ports and harbors whose coast de
fends are inadequate; that we
possess such strategic points as
Pearl Harbor and the Panama
Canal, whose control by an enemy
would render us helpless and
therefore we must have an ade
quate navy to compare favorably
with the navies of other countries
for the defense of our homeland
and island possessions.
Secondly, that commerce is es
sential to progress, that it must
be protected, that the United
States is second in commercial
interest while Gremany and
France hold third and fourth
places, and since a navy is our
national insurance policy and we
have commercial interests on both
the Atlantic and Pacific oceans
we must maintain a navy of third
rank to hold navies of other na
tions in equilibrium and protect
Lastly, they maintained that
diplomacy failed and we had a
war with Spain because it was
generally conceded at that time
that the Spanish navy was equal
to that of the United States; that
we were enabled to enforce the
Monroe doctrine and cause Ger
many to withdraw from Venezue
la and prevented (rouble with Ja
pan over the treatment of Japan
ese in California because of our
naval rank. All three political
parties favor an adequate navy
and since the representation in
peace conferences is proportional
to naval rank and our position as
a world power varies directly as
our naval position we must main
tain an adequate navy to have any
influence as a world power.
The negative began their discus
sion by stating that they would
argue the question from the stand
point that the navy of our country
should be to the navy of another
as the needs of one are to the
needs of another and to do this
they would show by comparison
thai Great Britain, Germany and
France each needed a greater
navy than tlie United States.
They contended first, that Great
Britain, Germany and France each
needs a greater navy than the
United States for purposes of de
fense because Great Britain is sur
rounded by water and being very
near enemies her position is very
vulnerable and that she has num
erous and scattered colonies to
protect. Germany is almost sur
rounded bj- seven nations, has a
short coast line easily blockaded
and lias numerous outlying col
onies. France is bordered by five
nations, lias 4,000,000 square
miles of outlying territory and
because of Gibraltar must main
tain two navies, and therefore
Great Britain, Germany and
France all need greater navies
than the United States for the
protection of their home countries
Secondly, that our geographical
situation is favorable, that we are
far from any enemies, which gives
us time advantage; that the Pana
ma Canal increases ihe efficiency
of our navy; that our ports are so
situated as to be defended easily
by mines and laud fortifications;
that our foreign possessions are
few and therefore we do not need
so large a navy as other nations
because of our natural advan
Lastly, that Great Britain is
chiefly a manufacturing nation,
that she imports her raw mate
rials and many necessities and is
move dependent on her trade than
any other nation; that Germany
is next to Great Britain in being
dependent on her trade, that she
manufactures, and obtains many
of her raw materials from the
I nited States; that France, al
i hough she could he agriculturally
self-supporting is dependent on
her manufactures for money; that
she has ;i great national debt, and
to run her factories must import
all her fuel; and since the United
States is economically independ
