Prayer meeting last week was con
ducted by (Miss Dix. She spoke of
the way in which students can bring
Christ into their own lives.
To show that this is a very vital
question she cited as examples:
Christ's answer to Martha about
Mary's negligence of household du
ties, His advice to the rich young
man, and His solution of Nicodemus'
A good test in those doubting mo
ments when one's faith seems to be
tested, is to remember those words
of our Master: "Love thy neighboras
thyself" and "inasmuch as ye did it
unto one of the least of these my
brethren, ye did it unto me."
Men and women have remembered
this spirit which Christ brought into
the World and the fullness of their
lives show how they measured up to
the ideal. Miss Dix mentioned Jacob
Riis, Frances Wi'lliard, Jane Adams
and Anna Howard Shaw as exam
When troubles arise one should
not assume a selfish attitude, but by
showing mercy and not judgment
rise above the commonplace.
Everyone needs to pray that beau
tiful prayer of DaVid with the accent
on the me: "Create in me a clean
heart, O God, anu 'renew the right
spirit in me."
In conclusion Miss Dix quoted
from Edward Steiner: "The most
valuable conviction that Christianity
holds for me is that the task is un
finished and it is my business to in
vest my life in such a way as to
make true the d;reiam of the son of

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., JANUARY 24, 1917.
GUILFORD WINS OPENING GAMES
HIGH POINT AND WINSTON Y. M. C. A.\S OUTCLASSED BY THE
QUAKERS TO THE TUNE OP 51-19 AND 41-30.
In the opening game of basketball
on the home floor Friday night, Jan.
12, the boys wearing the Crimson
and Gray easily defeated a quintet
representing the High Point Aithletic
Club to the tune of 57 to 19.
Throughout the entire game the
college te'am outclassed their oppo
nents in every respect of play.
D. Smith for Guilford displayed
wonderful skill and a keen eye in
goal shooting. He was able to locate
the basket from any angle, and dur
ing the forty minutes of play pocket
ed ten field goals. Jones came second
with seven field goals to his credit.
Massey and Walser showed that
they, too, were in the game by find
ing time to enlarge the score as well
as guard the opposing forwards.
Smith and Welch featured for the
visitors, the former securing eleven
points while Che latter obtained sev
Dine-up and scores:
Guilford: Jones and Semans, for
wards; Smith, center; Miassey and
High Poin't: Smith and RoChelle,
forwards; Welch, center; Hardy and
Field goals: D. Smith, 10; Jones,
7; Semans, 3; Massey, 4; Walser 2;
Smith 4; Rochelle, 1; Welch 3.
Foul goals: Massey, 5; R. Smith,
The Quakers took the second bas
ketball game of the season from the
strong Y. M. C. A. from Winston-
Salem by the score of 41 to 30. As
the final count indicates, the contest
was closely fought though the locals
were always leading after the first
three minutes of play in which Win
ston secured a field and two foul
goals. From the time of their sec
ond field goal, a moment later, the
Crimson and Gray maintained a
slight lead on the visitors which at
times was uncomfortably close; the
first half in fiacft ended with only a
three point margin for Guilford.
The second half opened in whirl
wind style; Massey secured the ball
near the Winston basket, dribbled
through three of the Visitors, and on
a neat Shot pocketed the ball for a
field gQal; in a moment he repeated
the same process and then to finish
the game in good form shot a beau
tiful basket from mid-floor. In the
mean .time Semans had also escaped
his guard and by tricky dodging to
gether Wi'th some good passing by
Jones and Smi'th had totalled five
field goals for himself in this half.
The entire team was Working as a
unit, bent on adding another victory
to their credit; the result was inevit
able, Guilford had increased her lead
eight points when the timekeeper's
whistle closed the cleanest game seen
on the local floor since the Trinity-
Guilford exhibition here last year.
The Twins put u,p a strong game.
A't no time did the Quaker quint run
away with the game as was the case
in the High Point contest. Cash, the
big center for t'he visitors, was a par
ticularly dangerous man on the top
off and a clever shot as well. Whal
ing also showed good form and Baze
more played a jamup .game at guard.
The visitors were strong on passing
but the close guarding of the Quak
ers reduced number of shots to
a minimum. Jones, who is scheduled
to play forward in most of t'he
games, temporarily forgot that he
was supposed to shoot goals and
turned out to be a regular old-time
guard, breaking up any number of
possible shots for the visitors. And
it paid, too. Guilford, on the other
hand, seemed to be able to get away
from t'he visiting guards for consist
ent shooting. The passing of the lo
cals while not so brilliant and snap
py as the work of the Twins was
more dead'ly, due largely to the abil
ity of a Crimson sh'irted lad to es
cape the big Winston guards at the
crucial moment, particularly in the
second half. The team was hardly
up to its usual form in the first half
which may be partially explained by
a severe fall w.hiich Captain Smith
suffered in the early part of the
game and which somewhat hamper
ed his vork for a few minutes fol
The work of individual members
of the team, the summary below will
hardly reveal. Team work featured
the exhibition rather than individual
shooting. The score-keeper's book
records the following, however:

Substitution: Winston, Patterson
for Bazemore. Pietd goals: Gu'ilford;

6 out of 1. Referee, Stuart.
Our library is still in need of
statuary—there are three niches
still to be filled. Two cl'aisses have
spoken for one each, but it was so
long ago I fear they themselves have
forgotten their good intentions.
Would that the class spirit could
crystallize on matters aside from
life's verities and give us a comple

the "Alexander Frieze."
P. P. Oaproni & Brothers, of Bos

furnish suggestions. When there is
sufficient interest, $30.00 will buy a

Arrangements Made for Basketball
Issuing from the deep silence
Which for so many weeks has envel
oped girls athletics at Guilford, one
may now hear the first faint strains
of what it is hoped will develop into
a rousing song, enthusiastically sup
ported by every girl on the campus.
The athletic cabinet has recently
been facing this question: Shall we,
or shall we not, have a live, working,
aggressive Association? The affirm
ative answer was made, and is being
backed up by the display of renewed
energy in every department. The
main effort of the cabinet as a body
is being concentrated at present up
on the* formulation of reasonable
sets of requirements governing the
winning of letters in the different

courts can not be used, but with

of merit being a splendid racquet.

of all paths and roads leading away
from t'he college, walking is slightly
discredited just now, but the cour

of "winter and rough weather."
Next week the basketball lovers
will resume regular practice, after
a temporary check for examination
week. Altho there has been a no
ticeably lack of enthusiasm in this
game previous to this, it seems that
the fighting spirits which they so ad

are expected to get out next week
and test t'heir skill against the ten

developing so rapidly into experi

monograms from the basketball de

the girls dormitories next week.
