BASKET BALL SUMMARY
In reviewing the basket ball sea
son just dosed, Guilford lias
made a creditable showing. Al
though she has no great record in
the games won she has shown up
to better advantage than we at
first realize. Taking into consid
eration the light weight of the
team as a whole, the boys have
given each time a hard tight, and
were always much outweighed by
their opponents. The team was
entirely new, and was laboring
under the disadvantage of never
having worked together before
this year. Yet when we begin to
calculate the points made, and
games won we find that we have
made a good showing. We have
played nine collegiate games, of
which we have won four, thus giv
ing us a percentage of .444. Guil
ford has scored a total of ;?().'>
points against her collegiate riv
als to :iSI points which have been
scored against her. In two game
series we divided honors with A.
& M., and Elon, and losi both to
The individual average of play
ers also bring out the fact that
they have been playing good
games. Jones leads with 7S points
to his credit in ten games; Wood
is second with (50 in eleven games.
Next comes G. Groome with 5S
points in eleven games, then Se
mans with 28 in eleven games,
and Hinkle S in seven games.
Smith also scored 4 points in field
goals in two games, and Price 2
in two games. Wood also made a
record of 04 foul goals, giving
him a total of 124 points, and
Smith also secured 5 foul points.
Futrell played a good close guard
in five games and figured in hold
ing down the opponents' score. I).
Groome broke into the lineup
twice as a substitute.
TRACK JIKET WITH 101, OX.
Manager E. A. Moore, of the
track team, has announced ;i meet
with Elon for April 1(5, and is
preparing to produce a good show
ing when the time arrives. He is
at a disadvantage because for the
past year or so track work has
tended to decrease, but there is
plenty of material here to develop
a strong team. From now on the
boys should be at it every after
noon, and it will only be by their
perisistent efforts that we can
produce a winning team. Yet if
we will work there is no reason
why we cannot defeat Elon on
April 16. Every man interested

BASKET HALL O's.
At a call meeting of the athletic
cabinet Wednesday night the mat
ter of presenting "G's" to the bas
ket ball players was discussed. It
was found on examination of the
by-laws and constitution the pres
ent G presented to basket ball
players can be worn only on a
After some discussion the mem
bers of the cabinet decided that
since Guilford has no football
team and basket ball stands next
to base ball here they should at
least be awarded a G equal to the
tennis G. The final decision was
that a G should be presented to a
player after lie has played in five
games two of which he shall play
in throughout and two of which
shall be winning games. This G
can be worn on a sweater the
same as a base ball (J as it is now
obtained on the same basis.
A committee was appointed to
draw up an amendment to this
effect and proper steps are now
being taken to amend the consti
"HAVERFORD" vs. "PRINCETON."
On Friday night the basket ball
girls of the Y. W. _\ A. met at
the gymnasium for the first bas
ket ball game this term.
The Haverford and Princeton
teams, as they called themselves,
took their places and for several
minutes there was hard lighting
on both sides, neither making a
goal. It seemed that both were
evenly matched; finally M. Lassi
ter shot a field goal for Haver
ford. to be followed with one-by
T. Moten for Princeton. At the
close of the first half the score
stood 2 to 2.
At the beginning of the second
half all went out with the deter
mination to win or to make who
ever did win work. Soon there
was a goal made for Ilaverford by
S. McGehee. I>y swift: playing A.
Morris after some good passes
shot a field goal. Also E. Speas a
foul goal to be succeeded by an
other field goal from A. Morris,
now Princeton was in the lead.
Hut at this time McGehee threw a
good field goal for Haverford.
There was some hard fighting for
the last few minutes. As the ball
went back to center for last time
it was driven to the Princeton
goal and T. Mo ten landed it into
The whistle blew and all was
over, the score being (! to in
favor of Princeton. The line-up
was as follows:
M. \\ liite c A. .Morris
S. McGehee ...r.f T .Moter
M. Lassiter ... . l.f 10. Speas
K.Saunders ..r.g P. Pik
■I. Pal linger . .1. g.. . M. Freeman
Much interest was added to the
occasion by the singing of Ilaver
ford and Princeton songs and a
new Guilford song, which Miss
Rhoades has just composed.
Miss Mary Prinkley, of Lexing
ton, who is in school at the Nor
mal, spent Sunday with Grace
Taylor and Marguerite Tuthill.
Mr. T. Fletcher Pulla ('11),
who has been the efficient superin
tendent of education of Randolph
county for two years, spent Wed
nesday night at the college.
Y. W. C. A. NOTES
One of the most enthusiastic
meetings we have had in the Y.
W. C. A. Iliis term was held
Thursday evening March 4, and
led by Hazel Armstrong.
After the opening songs and
prayer, several girls read portions
of the Bible l),v request of the
leader. These were in line with
the remarks she made afterward.
She mentioned the fact that girls
were not as loyal to each other as
they might be; that they often
misjudged each other's motives
and made unbecoming remarks
which often times hurt. She en
couraged us to look for the big
things and if we cannot find them
refrain from saying anything. In
other words, let us all the time be
looking out for something good in
everybody and we will be sure to
find it. And whatever else let us
be loyal to each other as students,
This was the regular time for
electing officers for the Associa
tion. Tiie result of the election is
Treasurer—Mary Ina Sham
These are all strong girls, and
with one exception, members of
next year's Senior class. We have
great hopes for the work as it is
taken up by these new officers
and we wish them much success.
We wish to thank the girls who
played in the basket ball game
Friday night for their willing
service. We also thank Miss
Khoades for her special interest
in advertising the game. It was
given, as many know, in order to
help pay expenses in getting an
organ for the Association hall.
A\ e are glad to say that we now
have enough to make the purchase
