What arc the things in your life
and in mine that count? Do we
sometimes stop long enough to
take an inventory of ourselves?
What are we doing now that will
he of lasting good? What are we
doing to make life worth while?
Are money, honor, reputation,
popularity, etc., the things we
should be striving for? Are they
things that will count? How
about kindness, courtesy, unself
ishness, worthy friendship, un
wavering purpose. Are they not
things that count? Will such
things not set a high standard of
living for us, for those about us,
and for those who come after us?
Are not such characteristics of
All of us have ambitions that
will count when we have attained
the heights to which they point,
hut how careful we should be not
to neglect the thing next at hand,
for in stumbling over the little
things to reach tin- larger how oft
en we lose our capacity for grasp
ing the larger when it comes.
It would be well for us to re
inetuber while we are here in
school that not only the kind of
grades we are making is not the
thing that will count 15 years
from now, but rather the habits
we are forming and the Friends
we are making.
We were very glad to have Miss
lOwing and Miss Yopp, of the
Greensboro City Association, out
to see us Friday afternoon.
Y. M. C. A. NOTES.
Kalph Vow conducted our pray
er meeting last week. As a Scrip
ture lesson he read Dan. I, begin
ning with the Bth verse. Then
taking the topic, "As a man sows
so shall he reap," the speaker gave
us some good remarks. Although
the subject was one that we had
heard discussed often before, yet
the way in which Mr. Yow handled
it it seemed new. He used no
ornate diction to excite one's
journey, but he spoke in plain
every day terms. The speaker de
clared that all around him were
summons to him to be a Christian.
There are no real beckoniiigs to
any other program of life. The
life of our successful men points
us to Christ's conception of life.
Even the wicked points not with
pride to his mode of living, but
rather they frankly admit that
life patterned after Christ is the
best. The meeting was good.

CAROLINA WINS 13-12 IN
Visitors Score on Locals before they
"WakeUp,"Fumbles Numerous-Very Costly.
When the last whistle blew on
Hohhs' tield Saturday afternoon
it was hard for the promoters of
the Guilford Football Club to be
lieve that the Carolina boys had
won the game; the score stood
The Guilford boys played the
most erratie game that they have
been called upon to play even in
the practise games against the
second team. Fumble after fum
ble was the cause of several losses
and of the only touchdowns made
by the visitors, both of their scores
being registered in the first quar
ter of the game. For the first half
of the game the locals seemed to
be somewhat dazed and as a result
not playing the game that they
were capable o*" playing and to
which they finally did get. down

Most of the playing in the first
half was done within the thirl r
yard line of the Guilford Club.
Some changes were made during

help the presence of mind of the
locals and they began to lose som;

The beginning of the second
half saw several changes in the
Guilford lineup. Morris had been
sent in as full-back. Uiddick later
was put in as left half, while Sea
mans relieved Morris at full-back.
Groonie was placed in as right
guard for McXairy, and Garner
relieved Lloyd at left guard. The
third quarter ended, however,
without either >ile scoring, but it
was apparent that the locals had
"found" themselves and meant to
do "something," for in less than
live minutes after the kick-off a
touch down had been registered
for the local team. The scoring
was done by Captain Seamans.
The team all of .( sudden realized
their great superiority over the
visitors and assorted it by making
another touchdown within three
minutes after the second kick-off
in the last quarter. The locals
failed to kick goal each time.

On Saturday evening, October
.">O, a strange procession was seen
directing its course towards the
gym. First there were just "ordi
nary people," who hurried along
rather breathlessly, for coming on
all sides were creatures whose
abodes more than likely were in
the cemetery—certainly they were
not mortals, but some sort of rest
less spirits from another world.
Then there was Anna Howard
Shaw with a small band of suf
fragettes who doubtless were dis
couraged and had come to try to
persuade some graveyard spirits
to join them and advocate their
cause to a better advantage.
Surrounded by witches with
and without broom-sticks, Bar
num-Bailey's circus brought up
Ihe rear. What could this mean?
Why were the witches directing
;ill this crowd to the gym for sure
ly spirits cannot take physical
training, suffragettes do not have
time for such, Barnum-Bailey's
circus is trained ready to perform,
and ordinary people usually take
their exercise in the daytime.
But it was not Ihe gym. It was
very evident that some witch or
goddess—two or three of whom
were standing here and there —
had dimned the lights to repre
sent the harvest moon and had
transformed the whole gym into
an autumn grove.
While wonderful feats were per
formed by sin elephant, reputed to
weigh 1,500 tons, a giraffe, a cam
el, and various experienced actors,
the ordinary people fled out of
reach to the galleries.
After the circus witches and
tall "sheeted" ghosts came boldly
forward and with terrifying nods
picked out their victims and
marched them around a circle.
Off in one corner, hidden entire
ly by leafy screens, was a gypsy
who was attracting ;i good bit of
attention by her fortune-telling.
All good or b:tl futures were soon
forgotten for on coming out the
spooks would perhaps compel the
unhappy dreamer to take a flying
trip around the circle and then
point him to some disappointing
About 10 o'clock the spirits and
witches began to get very restless

threw a spell over all—except
those who were still in the gallery
and over whom f/raveyard witches
had no effect—and made them
