GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C, OCTOBER 20, 1915.
Y. W. C. A. PICNIC
The Time—The Weather—The Place—The
In deciding upon a (late for the
V. \V. C. A. picnic the truth of the
old adage, "man porposes and God
disposes," was well illustrated.
The outing had been planned for
several Saturdays before it actual
ly took place. Each time the
weatherman interfered with our
program and we had begun to fear
that the good time was to exist
only in our imagination.
But fate had not decreed that
we should be entirely disappoint
ed, and in retrospect, every girl
who attended can say that "what
was worth having was worth wait
The morning of Oct. I>, 1015,
dawned bright and clear, with a
temperature after a picnieer's
own heart —in short, a day made
to order. Picnic Saturday had
come at last !
So about one o'clock four wag
ons. loaded with girls in just the
proper mood for a good time, set
out from Founders bound for the
Battleground. The four-mile dis
tance was soon covered, and then
the fun began in earnest.
A visit to the Battleground al
ways makes us proud that we are
living in a State with such a glori
ous past. Those of us who had
never seen the splendid monument
to Gen. Nathaniel Greene, unveil
ed on the fourth of last July,
found our picinc site doubly inter
esting this year.
Soon after our arrival a tire was
kindled, and Miss Gainey, who is
always the coffee-maker for these
occasions, soon manufactured a
beverage fit for a king.
Somewhere near the hour of live
the groups of girls gathered from
their various rambles and seated
themselves in a ring near the
Then Miss Julia White gave us
a short talk on Gen. Greene and
the important part which the Bat
tle of Guilford Court House play
ed in the ultimate victory of the
American forces. She especially
brought out the point that, altho
this battle was nominally a Brit
ish victory, it eventually proved
to be a most disastrous engage
ment for Great Britain. We are
always glad to have Miss Julia
talk to us, because she never fails
to have something of interest to
tell, and she did not disappoint us
on this occasion.
After the t:ilk. the girls were
asked to remain seated and the
members of the Y. W. C. A. cabi
net served supper to them. The
menu was as follows:
Ham, Pimento, and Chicken
Sausage '"Puppies," Biscuit
The 'puppy" roasting was the
source of much merriment and oc
casionally of some excitement
when one of the little "animals"
would make a rapid descent from
the roasting stick into the tire.
All too soon Miss Louise an
nounced that we must gather up
the "fragments" and start back to
Our homeward journey was en
livened by cheers, yells and songs
and in the giving of which there
was much friendly rivalry dis
played between the wagons.
Nature added more to the occa
sion than fair weather; the trees
were beautiful with their varied
coloring and it almost seemed that
October had put on her prettiest
dress to grace the occasion. The
moon came out upon our home
ward journey and smiled down
upon our fun.
We reached the college about
7.30, a bunch of tired and happy
girls. Perhaps we all felt that we
knew each other jnst a little bet
ter than we ever had before; per
haps also each girl feels jnst a lit
tle nearer to every other girl, in
consequence of our Y. \\\ \ A.
The writer is confident that
every girl who attended would be

For she it is who, in the main,
makes such good times possible.
DR. J J. HALL'S LECTURE
Dr. J. .1. Hall lectured on "The
Blessedness of Peace'' Saturday
night, October 10. War and peace
are vital subjects to the human
race, and Dr. Hall has done much
to promote peace.
"There are three classes of peo
ple who take different attitudes
towards war," said Dr. Hall. "The
first class seems to glory in war
as a necessity for the strength and
future greatness of a nation. The
second class is those who look
upon war as a necessary evil.
They are opposed to war except as
they think war is unavoidable.
The third class is those who do
not believe that war is necessary.
These people think that there is a
better way for nations to settle
"At such a time as this we
should emphasize the blessedness
and value of peace, and be thank
ful for the peace in this land.
There are not one hundred sane
men in the United States who
really want us to have war with
Mexico. War is a most detestable
thing, and no language can fully
portray the awfulness of it. There
is nothing greater in this whole
universe than life; and life is
what war destroys. The teachers
of America have a great opportun
ity to advance the world's peace
as it is an educational subject.
War is a poisonous worm that
destroys the home. Boys can de
velop themselves physically with
out learning to shoot and kill.
They can get enough exercise in
their athletics. Teach them to
wage war against intemperance
and ignorance and to stand for
the right and better days to be.
Instil into youngsters the spirit
"The war spirit is one of ang'".
hatred, retaliation and unkind
ness. Do ,m act of kindness everv
day, and cultivate a love for all
mankind. Love your enemies ami
do good to them that hate you.
Do these things and war will be
