FACULTY CHANGES GRADING
The following ruling in regard to
grading was recently adopted by the
Below 5 O—F0 —F
Students receiving an average
grade of E for a term's work in any
subject shall be required to take a
re-examination over the Work at the
reguLar time provided for the re
moval of deficiencies. Students re
ceiving an average grade of F for a
term's work shall be required to re
peat the course or, in case of an
elective, substitute an alternative
course at the discretion of the Dean.
The two preliminary games are
over and the inter-collegiate season
opens this week. It looks as if Coach
Doak has developed a right lively lit
tle bunch of tossers for the hard con
tests ahead. The team while un
usually light is fast and fairly dan
gerous along the shooting line. Cap
tain Smith, who has formerly played
the forward position, has been by
force of circumstances, there being
no great amount of pivotal material
on hand, shifted to center, and con
sidering his inexperience is playing
a good game. The forward positions
are filled by Semans and Jones. Se
mans has made considerable im
provement since last season and is
showing up well. Jones is playing a
steady game at forward and does not
hesitate to do a little guarding on
the side. His work in the game Sat
urday night, while not sensational
from the standpoint of goal shooting,
was of a high grade defensively. His
work was a splendid exhibition of
the defensive power of the offensive
position, which incidentally gave
Smith a chance to pocket a number
of field goals.
At guard Massey and Walser are
in tihe game all the time. Massey is
particularly strong in working the
ball to the Guilford basket and Wal
ser usually covers his man in good
shape. Upon occasion he can net the
ball with accuracy. The team looks
fairly good, but there is still room
for a world of improvement. There
is a slight tendency toward individ
ual work which must disappear, and
under the tutelage of Coach Doak
will, in all likelihood, be weeded out
entirely as the quint is rounded into
a perfect machine. Paster passing,
somewhat like the Winston style but
adapted to the college court, would
strengthen the offensive power of the
The scrub team is working away
with a vengeance and the improve
ment of these players is marked.
Zachary and Westmoreland at center
are making progress while "Stumpy"
Finch and Morris at guard, "Huck"
Rallinger and Miller at forward are
in the game with a vengeance. The
Scrubs are doing their part in the
development of the 'Varsity.
On Friday evening the strong
Wake Forest quint is met at Wake
Forest and on Saturday the A. & M.
team is played in the auditorium in
Raleigh. Both these games will test
the mettle of the Quakers and the
outcome is awaited with interest.
The Baptists were defeated last
week by Trinity but by a close score
and a stiff contest will pro'bably be
staged on Friday. The Quakers are
determined to get revenge for the
merciless drubbing which the Bap
tists gave them last year and while
Coach Doak is silent as to the out
come, his smile betrays his real con
victions. Boys, we have got to have
these two games.
