THE GUILFORDIAN VOLUME I. BINGHAM DEFEATED IN OPENING GAME Guilford opened the baseball season on her home grounds Fri day afternoon when she defeated the strong team representing Bingham (Melmne) Sto 3. Short opened with a two-base hit to left. Groom sacrificed, Kendall singled, Futroll doubled, Davis drew a pass, and two runs were scored in the first inning. Two more run.- - were added in the next inning when a base on balls, two sacri fices, and Short's two bagger land ed. Davis scored in the third by drawing a pass, stealing second, and third, and scoring on Ken dall's single. Guilford did not tally again until the seventh, when she scored two, and added another in the eighth. Bingham did not score until the sixth when a base on balls, an in field out, and two hits gave her two runs. She scored t;,;ain in the eighth, on two passed bats men, a hit batter, and a fielder's choice. Although the game was rather long drawn out it was interesting from start to finish, and the new players looked well in their posi tions. Murchison held the visi tors to four hits, and was never in danger. He struck out eleven batsmen, and lielded his position in good style. Of the ten hits made Futrell and Short made si v each taking three. Eck made two of the four hits by Bingham. Guilford next plays Elon on the 24th, and has a game pending with the University of Vermont for the 20th, after which she leaves on a South Carolina trip in which she plays four games, re turning for the Easter Monday game at Greensboro.

The -Juniors defeated the Fresh men Friday night in the closest and fastest game of the class se ries, thereby winning the class championship in basket ball. At the end of the first half the score stood 11 to 12 in favor of the Juniors, and although the Fresh men crowded them closely they were never in the lead. Short did particularly bright work for the Juniors and was responsible for majority of the scoring. Semans also played a strong game, and scored several field goals. Groome for the Freshmen did the best work and made the majority of the points. Morris also played a close guard and aided in keeping the Freshmen's score down. The final score was 20 to 21. Juniors—Semans, 1. f.; liiddick. r. f.; Short, c.; Coggins, 1. g.; Morris, r. g. Freshman—Sapp, 1. f.; Miller, r. f.; Groome, c.; Coltrane, I. g.; Smith, r. g. Inter-Class Track Meet, March 29. The date has been set for the inter-class track meet, and the Faculty have decided to give over the afternoon of March 2!> as a half holiday for the meet. The various classes and the prepara tory department have elected their captains, and these should use much forethought in selecting and placing the different men in the events. The object is to decide who will represent the college in the coming meet with Elon, and we should use our good material to the best advantage. With con stant work from now on, the men should be in good condition. Everybody is expected to be out and help his class carry off the honors. It is up to the boys to show their interest in this, and make it a success. Let's make it a big day! DR. HERTY'S LECTURE On Saturday evening, March 20, Dr. ('has. H. Herty, president of the American Chemical Society, and head of the Department of Chemistry at the University of North Carolina, gave a very inter esting lecture on "Cotton and Chemistry, The Relation, and llow Both Are Affected by the European War." The lecture was held under the auspices of the Joseph Moore Science Club, being the second of the annual public lectures given by that organiza tion. Dr. Herty first showed the rela tion of chemistry to agriculture; he then took up the things that had been accomplished in the cot ton industry by the application and development of chemical methods. Starting with the cot ton at the gin he followed the lint and then the seed through the long chain of technical products that are obtained from each. The lint was traced through the un bleached and bleached cloth, the use of natural and substantive dyes and mordant. On treating the cotton with different reagents many changes are brought about and each product has wide tech nical application. With caust : c soda mercerized cotton is formed, with nitric acid different degrees of nitration are obtained and pro ducts ranging all the way from new skin to artificial silk and gun cotton are made available. Turn ing to the seed, Dr. Herty then traced its development and show ed how the seed once was consid ered a worthless and undesirable product, in so much so that the State of Mississippi passed a law prohibiting the dumping of cotton seed into the streams for fear of point ion. Now, however, the hulls of the seed are removed and used for stock feed—the expressed oil is treated with caustic soda, purified and used as salad oil and liquid fat. By the hvdrogenation of these oils, the hard vegetable fats are made and by the saponifi cation of these with caustic soda, soap and glycerine can be obtain ed. The latter substance when ni trated gives nitroglycerine and dynamite. The speaker next look up the question of dyes and why it was that at the beginning of the Euro pean struggle there was a tem porary shortage of dyeing mate rials in this country. He said NUMBER 20 JUNIOR-SOPHOMORE DEBATE The final debate to decide what class shall hold the debating hon ors for the year will be held in Memorial Hall March 27 at 8 o'clock. This debate should be hotly contested, as both the con tending teams have won a victory and are eager for another. The teams are composed of Ezra Moore, .J. P. Garner and R. L. Newlin representing the Sopho mores, and Fred Morris, T. G. Perry and A. L. Riddick repre senting the .1 nniors. The question for debate is: Re solved, that the President of tho Cnited States should be elected for a term of six years and be in eligible for re-election. The ques tion though not new is one which has been talked of much recently and the discussion should be an interesting one. o'clock that the fault was not with the Aineri'-an chemist; not that he could not make the dye materials, hut, although the Sherman anti trust law prevents a large home corporation from squeezing out a smaller concern, there is no such restriction placed upon a foreign manufacturing concern selling goods in this country, and when any attempt to start a dye stuff industry in this country was made, the German works flooded the market with the same dyes at half the price it took to make them here, thus pushing the new indus try to the wall, and no one will start an industry in which there is no opportunity to make a liv ing. Then too there has been a lot of unnecessary scare about the dye stuff question as the trade re ports show that in 1014 there was only a seven per cent, decrease in the amount of dye materials im ported into this country as com pared with the previous year. Dr. llerty spoke with great n thnsiasni over the development of chemical industries in the near fu ture, and urged the need of higher training in methods of research fc help the development which the South will surely undergo. After the lecture, the Science Club and members of the faculty held an informal reception for I).\ Herty in New Garden Hall. Messrs. Roy Millikan and IVr \ is I Season, of Greensboro, attend ed the liingham-Guilford baseball game Friday afternoon.
