As has been cited before in this
column the Guilfordian is the prop
erty of the student body of Guilford
College and not simply a medium of
public expression for those who hap
pen to constitute the Board. If this
is true, then it becomes the duty and
privilege of every student here to ex
ercise whatever gifts of writing he
or she may possess by an occasional
contribution to the college weekly.
Don't feel that the paper is none or
your affair, something with which
you have no official connection and
therefore no connection at all.
There are, without doubt many
students here who are entirely capa
ble of giving something really good
to the readers of the Guilfordian, but
how may one know of these if abso
lutely no effort at contribution is ever
made? As the caee now stands upon
what basis will a future board be
The question of offering a prize for
the best contribution is being consid
ered and further notice concerning
this will appear in an early issue. So
get busy and demonstrate your abil
ity in the use of the King's English.
PRAYER, SUBJECT IN Y. M. C. A.
Prof. Brinton's Discussion Prepares
For the Week of Prayer.
Since this is a week of prayer in
all the colleges of the country, Prof.
Brinton, as leader of the Y. M. C. A.
Thursday evening, the Bth of Novem
ber, selected the word "Prayer" as
a topic for discussion.
Prayer is the most essential thing
in the religious life. It is also the
most natural part of every human
life, and should not be considered as
something foreign to us that we can
seek only in time of need. Without
prayer our lives would be lived on
one level. We would never be able
to reach the heights nor depths of
"The sincere prayer contains all
sorts of minor petitions," said the
speaker, and if we are sincere wi
will petition God for what we really
The best of all prayers is the pray
er for companionship. When our
associates fail to meet our needs, hu
man nature leads the individual to
seek the companionship and infinite
strength of God, thru prayer. "Real
prayer is a worded petition to God
Himself," said Prof. Brinton. The
petition should be uttered just as a
person talks to a friend at his side.
There is also a prayerful state of
mind which the individual is able to
possess at all times. God cannot be
merciful to us unless we are in a
state of mind to accept his forgive
ness. True prayers for forgiveness
are therefore always answered. Thru
prayer our petty desires are given up
and our wants become universal in
Why a Cat Always Alights on Its
At the regular meeting of the
Science Club on Wednesday evening
Professor Balderston discussed gyro
scopic action under the title of "Spin
ning Tops." He developed the sub
ject by analogy, from the subject of
centripeta acceleration showing by
means of vectors that centripetal ac
celeration is a change in the direction
of the velocity of a moving point and
that exactly the same thing is true
of rotating rigid masses. A change
in the direction of rotation means a
change in the direction of the axis of
rotation. In the case of a spinning
top the vector representing its an
gular velocity passes through the axis
of the top and if the top has right
hand motion points downward. If
now the top be tipped so that the
earth exerts a torque upon it tending
to tip it toward the observer it will
be given an angular velocity about
an axis in the table at right angles to
the original axis of rotation. The
vector representing the new imposed
velocity lies in the axis mentioned,
and by the same convention as be
fore may be shown to point toward
the right. By the rule for summa
tion of vectors the resultant of these
two motions indicates that the axis
of the top must turn so it will in
cline to the left and this it will
continue to do. This motion is called
precession. The more interesting
phenomenon which causes a top to
rise and "go to sleep," which causes
a prolate spheroid to rise on one end
when spun violently, was shown to
but an extension of the same prin
ciple, a torque being developed at
te table tending to turn the top
bout a vertical axis. Incidentally
to the discussion Professor Balder
ston showed pictures which proved
how a cat turns over in the air so
that it always alights on its feet. A
cat which came to the meeting unex
pected but as if by appointment,
when called upon, proved an excel
lent performer and demonstrated its
ability to turn over in a distance of
only one foot.
New Websterians Making Good.
On last Friday evening the ques
tion of Woman Suffrage was hotly
contested in the Websterian Society.
The popularity of the subject, due
partly to the recent elections, made
the debate the more interesting. The
new men on the program deserve
commendation for the efficint manner
in which they handled the subject.
The affirmative speakers, Hobert Pat
terson, Edgar Tome and Roger Og
burn, upheld the movement by show
ing that women are capable of mas
tering the political situations, from
both the educational and physical
points of view, that suffrage is within
woman's bounds, and that experience
has proved it to be successful.
On the contrary J. G. Reddick,
Earl McFarland and Wilfred Barrett
convinced the judges that universal
suffrage should not be granted be
cause woman's sphere does not in
clude the electorate; she is naturally
unable to cope with the political
bosses and that this is no period for
Joe Taylor, who chose to become a
Websterian, was gladly received as a
member of the society.
New Clays Making Good.
On last Friday night the entire pro
gram was carried out by the new
men. Some of the participants were
performing for their first time and
manifested their ability as speakers
in a most pleasing manner.
The debate for the evening, "Re
solved, That the negro conscripts
should be granted equal suffrage with
the whites on their return from the
war," was filled with forceful argu
ment and discussed with great en
thusiasm. Messrs. Lyndon Williams
and Murry White successfully de
fended the affirmative, while Messrs.
James Holt and Holmes Williams
proved strong in their attacks for the
Ever since the beginning of school
the censor has been handicapped in
placing fines on new members. For
the sake of those present especially
for censor and new Clays the by
laws were read and discussed to the
satisfaction of all.
