THE GUILFORDIAN VOLUME II MUSICALE First Recital of Music Club —Splendid Program Car ried Out —Selections Good—Renditions Excel lent —Miss White, Miss Gertrude Hobbs, Mr. Fowell Mendenhall and Professor Moore Solists — Another Program to be Given Soon. There Was a good attendance at the musicale Saturday night, No vember (>, given by the Choral So ciety in Memorial Hall. The chor us is made up of about forty girls and twenty boys, and every one showed a personal interest and enthusiasm which made the enter tainment the success that it was. The programme was exceptionally good considering the short time given to the practising, and all those attending felt that it was a success, due to the untiring inter est of those in charge, and look forward to mora such entertain ments in the future. The program was carried out as follows: PART I.

Merry Life Denza Chorus. GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., NOVEMBER 10, 1915. Y. W. C. A, PLAY NOV. 20 The girls are now hard sit work on the annual Y. W. C. A. play. Our "coach," Miss Ayer, has chos en for us this year ''The Chape ron," a clever and amusing com edy in three acts. We feel sure that "Nora" and "Mile. Jeanne" will afford you as much fun as they do Joyce and her friends, while Jill, the poor little waif, who so longs to live "like other girls," will win your ready sym pathy. But lest we tell you too much about it now, we will wait until the 20th of November when you may enjoy it for yourselves. Y. W. C. A. NOTES. The talk on "Little Everyday Kindnesses" given by Bessie Guth rie at our Thursday evening pray er meeting was greatly apprecia ted by all those who were present. Every girl in the association room seemed to be in the spirit of the meeting and consequently gave to the leader their individual atten tion. The leader by her words caused us to realize afresh that tiie real value of common place, kindly deeds cannot be over-estimated. Some one has truly said: "The cheapest of .all things is kindness; requiring the least trouble and sacrifice." It costs nothing to say a cheerful word and it may lighten a heart overloaded with sadness. The thing for us to do is to get the habit! It is said of Charles Lamb that he did not mind whose bundle he carried, just so he relieved some aching arm; nor how lowly the doorway he entered, if lie could carry cheer across the threshold. The leader closed her remarks by reminding us to embibe this spirit of Lamb's. By some mistake in last week's issue the name of the leader who gave the talk on "The Things That Count" was not given. We take this opportunity to say that Sallie McGeehee led the very interesting meeting of last week. Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Reddeck, Sadie Reddeck and David White, of Trinity, were visitors here Sun day. Frank Holton, a former Guil ford student, spent Saturday and Sunday with friends here. BASKETBALL - SGHEDULE Four of Last Years' Team Back on the Hill —Splendid Schedule for Home Floor. Manager J. P. Garner has prac tically completed his basketball schedule, and submits the follow ing program of games subject to possible changes. After much dif ficulty in arranging games with some of the colleges, he has sub mitted a schedule that will be highly satisfactory to the stu dents because they will have a chance to see the fastest teams in the State on our own floor. The fast teams from Trinity, Wake Forest, North Carolina A. & M., the University of North Carolina, Elon, and Davidson will all play here. The date when Davidson will play here is not yet definitely decided. With Jones, Ilinkle, Semans and Grooine, of last: year's team back on the hill, and several of last year's substitutes along with some real promising new men from whom to select the fifth man, there is no reason why Guilford should not put forth a winning team. The schedule is as follows: January 19—-N. C. A. &M. at Guilford. February 3—Davidson at Da vidson College. February 4—Statesville Y. M. C. A. at Statesville. February s—Charlotte Y. M. C. A. at Charlotte. February 9—N. C. A. & M. at Raleigh. February 10—Wake Forest at Wake Forest. February 14—Wake Forest at Guilford. February 18—Trinity at Guil ford. February 21—Elon at Guilford. February 25—University of N. C. at Guilford. February 28—Elon at Elon. February 29—Trinity at Dur ham. March I—University of N. C. at Chapel Hill. (?) —Davidson at Guilford. Messrs. Bivins and Speed, of Oak Kidge, attended the musical Saturday night. Mr. and Mrs. Avery and Misses Worth, Garrison and Johnston visited relatives here Sunday. Y. M. C. A. NOTES In Paul's-letter to the Pliilip pians we find these words: "Final ly, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever tilings are pure, whatsoever tilings are lovely, whatsoever things are of good re port; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." This is the way that Prof. Brinton began his talk at our Y. M. C. A. meeting last Thursday evening. He said that he wanted to talk about one's thoughts. The speaker took for his subject the idea that one's thoughts determine what one is. He used the psychological expres sion that thought is motor, or in other words, every thought will express itself in some degree even though it be very slightly. The speaker maintained that a thought held np continuously before one's mind would cause one to act ac cording to that thought. If one harbors evil thoughts the result will be that that one will act evil ly. He mentioned how advertis ers and hypnotists make use of Hi is law of mental suggestion. Mr. Brinton gave us some splen did hints about the necessity of one having pure thoughts. Will we profit by them or not? HENRY CLAY SOCIETY NOTES. The meetings of the Society are very interesting and the attend ance is good. At the regular meeting on November o the ques tion of Teaching Military Tactics in Public Schools was discussed. Garner, K. Freeman and Johnson handled the affirmative, with A. C. Jones, Hussy and H. Moore as their opponents. The affirmative won. A splendid declamation was given by W. Mitchell. The following men were elected to office: Lambeth, president; Garner, vice-president; E. Moore, secretary; Johnson, assistant sec rotary, and Thayer, marshal. The new men in the Society are showing good form and are to be complimented on the work they are doing. Perry as critic render ed liis report and the Society ad journed.
