THE GUILFORDIAN VOLUME IV. MR. BERGTHOLDT SPEAKS TO Y. M. AND Y. W. C. A. $325 PLEDGED BY STUDENTS FOR ARMY Y. M. C. A. WORK. On Thursday evening the Associa tions were very glad to hear Mr. J. W. Bergtholdt, College Y. M. C. A. Secretary for th 3 Carolinas, in the interest of Association work in the war. After a Scripture reading Mr. Bergtholdt commenced his talk by saying that there used to be just two divisions of workers in war times, the army and navy, but now there are three, the army, navy, and Y. C. A., for truly the latter goes everywhere that the others go. "In the Spanish-American war the Y. M. C. A. did such splendid work despite its many handicaps," said Mr. Bergtholdt, "that when this war broke out and Dr. John R. Mott of fered the services of the Association to President Wilson that President Wilson at once recognized it and gave it a place in which to work." The Y. M. C. A. does so many things that it is hard to enumerate them. For one thing it has almost blotted out gambling by establishing banks where the money of the soldiers may be deposited immediately on pay day and thereby the temptation elimina ted. The library is filled with books fnr tho boyc roarl and t.hftse ari always out. The Y. M. C. A. head quarters in every camp contains a room in which are to be found paper, stamps and ink and over the table on the wall ia a sign, "When have you written to mother." "If the Y. M. C. A. did nothing else more than help the parents and friends of these boys (Continued on fourth page) RED CROSS ACTIVITIES. One of the most active interests at Guilford just now is the Red Cross work, which is being done thru the medium of the Y. W. C. A. As it. was not thought best to organize a separate chapter, the work is being done under' direction of the Red Cross organization in Greensboro. The opportunity to enlist in the work was given to all members of the Y. W. C. A. and it met a ready response both from members of the faculty and student body. The classes in Home Economics have reg istered for sixteen hours of work per week, for the next three weeks, at the end of which time it is though! that all the work on hand will have been completed. Permanent headquarters, which have been established in Foundei ? Hall, present a busy scene. The con stant whir of the sewing machines testifies to the earnestness of those who have undertaken that part of the work. Activities, however, arc not confined to headquarters, as we are rem'nded by the clicking of knit ting needles on every side. Fifteen mufflers are nearing completion, and fifteen soldiers will be made more comfortable this winter because o! the interest and industry of Guilfon College girla. GUILFORD COLLEGE, N.

MUSIC DEPARTMENT SCORES A SUCCESS .MUSICAL SETTING TO TENNYSON* DELIGHTS AUDIENCE. Saturday evening, November 3, at 7:30 o'clock the first musical of the j ear was staged in Memorial Hall. Papworth, in a few well-chosen words, welcomed the hearers and ex plained the nature of the program ior the evening—telling them that it Aould be an evening with Tennyson with a few selections of difierent origin and nature. Seldom, if ever, have Tennyson's poems, "The Bugle Song" and "The of Shalott" been more effective ly or more feelingly interpreted than they were on the occasion when Prof. Balderston reaa them in such an interesting and charming way to nis hearers. After the reading of "The Bugle 3ong," the members of the chorus iang the poem in a manner reflecting .redit upon themselves and upon their able director, Miss Papworth. The poem, "The Lady of Shalott," was explained in a most interesting and logical manner by Prof. Brinton. He showed how the sad, sweet story portrayed the waking from dreams LO reality; and how the curse upon .lie Lady of Shalott falls upon many maidens of today. The cantata, bringing with it first a_ breath of lightness and cheer, and ,ng armour, and finally in "Fairy L.ady of Shalott" in all her sadness pathos, was next given by a chor us of twelve girls. The soloists of the evening, Misses Moton arc riobbs, interpreted their respective themes in a beautfiul and sympathet ic way. After the cantata, the audience joined in singing "America." Then, gaily and cheerily, the ehor as sang that rollicking sailor song. Nancy Lee." Paul Fitzgerald was at his best in .i.s rendition of his solo, and the strains of "As In Old Gardens' will linger long in the mind 3 of hi 3 aearers. i be Men's Glee Club fully lived up to their well-established reputation of last year and charmed their aud jnce by their beautiful rendition or 'There's Tlusic in the Air" and "Sta. of the Summer Night."
