THE GUILFORDIAN VOLUME I. BASEBALL SCHEDULE Manager J. R. Brown has sub mitted the following schedule for the coming baseball season. After unusual difficulty in arranging contracts with some of the col leges heretofore played, he has at last arranged a schedule that is highly satisfactory from the standpoint of games, and also one that will not bring too many games too close together. Two trips are arranged out of the State, the tirst in South Carolina, and the second in Virginia. On these trips we meet Emory and Henry, and Wotl'ord Colleges for the first times, and we again meet the strong I*. S. C. and Virginia college teams. The usual faster Monday game with the Cni versify of North Carolina at Greensboro will not be played this year on ac count of failure to come to terms, but play instead the strong Elon team. With the opening of the season a strong team is expected to be produced, from the men now hard at work. The schedule is as follows: March I!)—Bingham (Mebane) at Guilford. March 24—Elon at Guilford. March 31—Belmont at Bel mont. April I—Wotl'ord at Spartan burg. April 2—Univ. S. C. at Colum bia. April 3 —Univ. S. C. at Colum bia. April s—Elon (Easter Mon day) at Greensboro. April 7—N. C. A. &M. at Ral eigh. April 13—Greensboro League at Greensboro. April 17—X. C. A. & M. at Greensboro. April 20—Winston League at Winston. April 21—Roanoke at Salem. April 22—V. P. T. at Blacks burg. April 23—V. P. I. at Blacks burg. April 24—Emory and Henry at Emory. April 27—Univ. S. C. at Guil ford. April 28—Wotl'ord at Guilford. April 30 —Univ. N. C. at Chapel Hill. May I—Wake Forest at Wake Forest. N. Rush Hodgin, of Greensboro, spent Sunday afternoon at the college. GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., MARCH 3, 1915. Y. W. C. A. V. W. C. A. was conducted Thursday evening by Gladys Ilightill. Her subject was "Choos ing." The subject is not a new one. but the lender treated it in a very impressive manner. The les son was taken from Luke 1 0 :38- 42, Mark 10:171 m. She told of .Mary's faithfulness (o Jesus and of her eagerness to learn all she could from her Mas ter. Then Ihe young man who was anxious lo know' what to do to be saved, and when Christ told him, he turned away, choosing ra I her !o retain his wealth and risk the consequences. We often criticize him for this, but are we not often much more guilty of choosing the lesser of two goods than this young man was? He did not mean to be placing his possessions above the .Master, for he recognized his divinity and su periority and ran to him. She applied the lesson to the students here. We have so many opportunities; some much greater than others of course and it means very much to us in after life to make the right choice. GIRLS' ATHLETICS. A great deal of interest contin ues among the girls in playing basket ball. They have been oc cupying the gymnasium every time it is permitted them to have it. With Evelyn Briggs as cap tain they have developed a very efficient team. And it has been decided to give a public game next Friday evening, March 5. At a recent business meeting of the Association it was decided to give twenty-five dollars on the Y. W. C. A. organ. SOCIAL. Although a great number of the student body was away from the college Saturday night, some with the ball team, others attending the banquet in Greensboro, there remained quite a number who gathered together at Founders at 7 :•'!) for a social evening. Rook was the leading game and we were especially favored with songs from the boys' quartet. Miss Rhoades had charge in Miss Os borne's absence and in Iter -usual pleasant manner made it possible for all to have a good time. Mr. Leroy Miller, of Linwood, N. C., attended the banquet in Greensboro Saturday night and visited at the college. Y. M. C. A. Thursday night's V. M. C. A meeting was given over to a gen era I discussion of the theme, Per sonal Religion or What Christian it v Means to Me. After the opening song, Harrell Budd, chairman of the Religious Meetings Committee, arose and announced that on account of the unavoidable absence of the sched uled leader for the evening, that he had decided to give up the meeting to a discussion of "What Christianity Means to Me." He then proceeded to open the discus sion by saying that to be a Chris tian, to him, meant living right with one's fellow man. lie said a Christian was one who was right with God and his fellow man. Mr. Budd was followed by sev eral others who spoke briefly but forcefully. Much interest was manifested and each man went away feeling better. All in all it was one of the most helpful meet ings of the year. ZAT ASIAN NOTES. There seems to be a prevalent idea that society spirit naturally and inevitably lags as its work goes on, and that the work itself becomes a task rather than a priv ilege. However, the Zatasiaus are glad that this is not necessarily true. Our program for Friday even ing, Feb. 20, was an exceptionally interesting one. We realize the difficulty of preventing monotony and for this reason the evening was devoted mainly to a musical romance. Twenty suggestive ques tions were asked, the answers to which were the names of popular songs and instrumental music. Small prizes were ottered to the two members whose answers were most nearly correct. Misses Speas and Taylor were the successful ones. After this our prophetess gave us her warning. Both these numbers of the pro gram were well carried out and showed some degree of originality and much interest. Although we are far from satisfied with our present attainments we are en couraged and see no reason why much good work cannot be done, and this we are expecting. Richard J. M. Hobbs ('O9), of Charlotte, attended the Guilford banquet in Greensboro and spent Sunday at the College. NUMBER 17 NEWLIN COMING The (Jnilfordian lias seen fit to withhold an announcement of the election of President Thos. New- lin, of Whittier College, Califoi ilia, to the presidency of Guilford College until the matter had been entirely settled. We can now definitely state, ru mors to the contrary notwith standing, that President Xewlin has been elected and has accepted the position as president of this institution, and that the protest made by certain members of the faculty against his election, has been waived by them in view of new developments in the case and what they considered the best in terests of the College. HENRY CLAY NOTES. In our meeting of February 1!) the debate seemed to take on a new aspect, being characterized by spirit unparalleled in several weeks. The question resolved that the pardoning power should be re moved from the governor of North Carolina was the one under dis cussion and suffice it to say the representatives of both sides gave orderly, logical and clear-cut ar guments that held the house in wonder as to who would win. The affirmative was upheld by Lam beth, Lloyd and Holton, while H. Moore, Geiser and Budd denied the proposition in support of the negative. The negative won. In this debate four men deserve special mention for the speeches they gave. These, H. Moore, Geis er, Lloyd and Holton, by the ex cellent work they did, show that they are making rapid strides of improvement, and a continuation of such work will in a few weeks develop into an improvement con test worth while. A word of en couragement is due these men and every effort possible should be made by all old members to aid them in their first year's society work. The nominating committee made a report and the following officers were elected: Brinkley, president ; Thayer, secretary; IJol ton, Critic Carroll made a briei and favorable report and the society adjourned. Snpt. (). V. Woosley, of the Lex ington city schools, attended the (i nil ford banquet in Greensboro Saturday night, and sjent Sun day here with his brother, Prof. J. B. Woosley.
