At the opening session of the
convention Friday afternoon. Dr.
Howard E. IJondllialer, president
of Salem College, spoke to the del
egates on ''Christ Among (lie Peo
ple." He continued his discourse
on this same subject at the Satur
day morning and afternoon ses
sions. In these discourses he pic
tured Christ as a tempted man, a
cheerful man. and a usable man.
The Friday night session was
addressed by Mr. A. M. Trawick.
of Nashville, an International
Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. on
"The New Evangelism." Mr. Tra
wick read as the basis of his ad
dress some verses beginning with
Mathew 10:1.3, and closing with
the statement of Christ, "Thou
art Peter, and upon this rock 1
will build my church; and the
gates of hell shall not prevail
against it." lie said, "We face
the 20th century church, which
has its roots in the past, but
which is not the church of the
past. The church to which 1 be
long is partly what it is because
of what I am. The church of to
day is what we make it. God ex
presses Himself in me every day
just as well as I will allow Him."
Among all the speakers of the
convention Mr. Fred P. Smith, of
New York, deserves more special
mention than any others. At the
Saturday morning session of the

the spiritual force of the V. M. C.
A. He also delivered a powerful
sermon in the First Presbyterian
church at the 11 o'clock service
Sunday morning on "Faith." But
the crowning event of the conven
tion came Sunday afternoon when
Mr. Smith delivered a masterful
address to men in the Elks' Audi
torium, his subject being "Ameri
ca's Greatest Sin." After draw
ing vivid mental pictures of the
many great sins, he finally said
that America's greatest sin is the
Sin of Ingratitude.
One feature of the convention
that will linger long in the minds
of the delegates was the annual

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C„ FEBRUARY 10, 191f 5
GUILFORD WINS LAST
GAME OF SEASON
Defeats Elon College in Interesting Game by Score
of 25 to 20.—Greensboro Y. M. C. A. Wins.
(Juilford closed her basket ball
season at hoim; in brilliant style
Wednesday night, when she de
feated the strong Elon team, -5 to
20. Not only was the game of in
tense interest throughout both
halves, but also it was the fastest,
hardest fought game that the stu
dent body has had the opportun
ity of witnessing this season.
Elon, our rival in athletic honors,
came with the intention of admin
istering a crushing defeat, but
since the beginning of the season
our team lias steadily improved
under competent coaching, and
this improvement coupled with
their determination to win meant
only victory. Guilford clearly out
classed the Elon five in passing
and general team work, and
throughout the whole perform
ance was master of the situation.
The homo team worked togeth
er belter than they have in any
previous game, for, in fact, it was
a game that demanded the best of
each one of the five. They seemed
to get together at the lirst, and
from then they fought until the
whistle blew. In one way the
game was won by the work of
Wood, Groome and Jones at for
ward and center, but il was also
won in being saved by the excel
lent and close guarding of Hinkle
and Semans. Groome led in field
goals with three, and Wood fol
lowed with two. Wood also shot
eleven fouls. Hinkle and Semans
caged one field goal each. -Jones,
by his headwork and good passing
was also a factor in helping to
run up the score.
The work of Hinkle at guard
was the oustanding feature of the
game. He was guarding one of
the best forwards in the State,
and (he way in which he accom
plished this was very gratifying
to his Guilford supporters. Se
mans, Hinkle and Wood each
made beautiful shots from long
range and at exceedingly difficult
Moorefield was, by far, the star
of Elon's quintette and upheld the
greater burden of the game. It
seemed that their sole object was
to pass to Moorefield. to whom
they looked to win the game. They
were inclined to play a rather
rough game, and outweighed our
team. McCauley succeeded in
finding the basket for one field
goal and eight fouls. The weak
point of (lie visitors seemed to be
in general team work and passing.
The line up was as follows:
Wood r.f .Moorefield
Jones l.f Bradford
Groome c McCaulev
Kemans r.g Massey
ilinkle l.g Morgan
Field goals: Wood (2), Groome
Ilinkle (1), Semans (1),
Moorefield (4), Bradford (1), Mc-
Cauley (1). Foul goals: Wood
(1), McCauley (S). Referee,
Stuart; Umpire, Doak.
Greensboro Y. M. C. A. Wins
Guilford was severely beaten
Saturday night by the Greensboro
V. M. C. A. on the Y. M. C. A.
floor by the score of 52 to 11.
Greensboro outclassed the Guil
ford boys all around, but the lat
ter were hampered by the very
small floor which practically made
dribbling impossible. Not a sin
gle man of the Guilford team
played in liis usual form, and they
were also laboring under the dis
advantage of Y. M. \ A. rules.
The feeling between the two
teams ran high and some very un
sportsmanlike conduct character
ized the game. This was height
ened by the attitude of both spec
tators and officials.
The score follows:
Guilford. V. M. C. A.
Wood r.f Harbison
Jones 1.g.. Kellenberger.
Groome c Lewis
11 inkle r.g Heecher
Semans l.g Hlair
Smith substituted for Wooil in
second hall'; Tut veil substituted
for Senians in second half. Field
goals: Harbison (7), Kellenber
ger (7), Lewis (4), Beecher (3),
Blair (2), Wood (1), (troome (1),
Smith ill. Foul .;ils: Harbi
son (1), Beecher (5), Wood (5).
Referee, Barlow; umpire, Stuart;
Mr. Anderson, Superintendent
of Public Instruction of Guilford
county, was a visitor at the col
Memorial Hall was the scene of
a special session of court on last
Friday night for the purpose of
clearing the docket of criminal
cases. The brother l lay and Web.
Societies jointly gave this pro
gram, which served to break the
monotony of regular society
work as well as to furnish amuse
ment for the visitors.
The case surrounded by most
mystery and of most interest was
case Xo. 71, State against William
Futrell for the murder of his
sweetheart. Miss Mary .Jones. A
special venire had been summon
ed from which a jury of twelve
men was picked. The evidence
was all circumstantial, but the
state showed that the evidence
and the condition of the body
pointed to foul play by Mr. Fu
trell, while the defense showed a
reason for suicide and a possibil
ity of it.
The state represented by
Messrs. C. Hinshaw, Budd and
Brown prosecuted the case with
great zeal, but the defense repre
sented by Brinkley, Morris and
Mitchell were equally zealous in
their efforts and succeeded in
clearing the prisoner at the bar.
Some of the speeches were very
pathetic because of the serious
condition of Mrs. Jones and the
grief of Mrs. Futrell.
An attempt was made to make
the scene realistic. The stage was
arranged on the order of a court
room and Mr. Perry as judge lent
dignity to the proceedings. The
examination of the witnesses was
attended with some humor and
was a very enjoyable part of the
N\ hile the jury was out deliber
ating on this case some other
cases ol local interest were read,
hut they were postponed to the
next session of court.
Mr. McCall, by his intimate
knowledge of the workings of the
courts of our state, was of invalu
able assistance to both sides in
the preparation of their material
and added considerably to the pro
ceedings by the realistic way in
which lie HI led the office of sheriff.
