Presbyterians Defeat Quakers 37 to
24 in Hotly Contested Game.
On the night of February 1, the
Guilford basket ball team was de
feated by t'he Davidson quint on the
Davidson's floor by a score of 37 to
24. The Davidson team took the
lead early in the game and kept it
until the last whistle blew, although
at times the Guilford team showed a
real fighting spirit and threatened to
push ahead of the Presbyterians.
The playing of Jones, for Guilford,
was one of the most noticeable fea
tures of the game. He, though well
guarded by his opponents, succeeded
in sending three field goals into the
basket from long range. Jones, as
in all former games, clearly outclass
ed his opponents in shooting foul
goals. Out of nine trials he made
six good, while Davidson pocketed
only three out of ten firee trials.
For Davidson, King and Henge
weld played the best game. They
together scored 31 of the 37 points
made by Davidson.
The Guilford team at times did
some real team work, showed excel
lent fighting spirit, and did some
good passing, but this was not done
consistently. There iwere times dur
ing the game when the players al
lowed their pep to subside, and to
this the loss of the game may be

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N
Domestic Science Department to Oc-
eupy New Quarters,
A plan has been worked out in de
tail to incorporate the Biology Lab
oratory w'tih the Museum, in the be
lief that such an incorporation will
be for the best interests of not only
both the Museuim and Biology De
partment but will be of advantage to
other departments of Guilford Col
lege. This plan has been indorsed
by the faculty and by the executive
committee of the trustees. The rea
sons far the change are as follows:
1. It will make for the better
care and usefulness of the Museum
without in any way interfering with
the usefulness and its original pur
2. It will make possible much bet
ter facilities and better work in the
Biology Department, and make pos
sible the growth and larger useful
ness of this department, now limited
and hindered by its present situa
3. It will make available for the
use of another department the space
now occupied by the Biological Lab
4. That the incorporation of the
Museum and Biology Laboratory can
be accommodated without asking
either the college or the Board of
Trustees for any money or making
them liable to any expenditures.
To take these points up in order,
the proposed change can be only of
benefit to the Museum because it will
result in much better care for all of

PROP. BALDERSTON TALKS TO
Y. M. C. A.
The last meeting of the Y. M. C.
A. was addressed by Prof. Balderston
on the subject of "making excuses."
He began by declaring that the best
part of the meeting, that devoted to
prayer, had already taken place. In
the prayer service where many take
part and wfliere the responsibility is
not thrown on a single person, true
worship is expressed. The speaker
showed the futility of making ex
cuses when asked to lead a meeting.
C., FEBRUARY 6. 1918
Dr. Madison Siwadener, of India
napolis, representing the Anti-Saloon
League of America in its campaign
for National prohibition, spoke at trie
church here Sunday afternoon, Feb.
He sketched most graphically the
methods employed in the modern
crusade against the legalized liquor
system, a traffic which has become an
Mr. Swadener did not discuss the
question of temperance in the old
fashioned way, but he spoke more
particularly of the various temper
ance organizations which have ex
isted since tlhe Civil War, and of the
very effective work which they have
done in the matter of arousing sen
timent against the liquor traffic.
"The time has now come," said Dr.
Swadener, "to cryst'alize this senti
ment into action, and to mobilize the
forces of the anti-saloon movement."
The speaker showed very concise
ly, by definite exannples, how tlie
iiquor interests have exerted a most
powerful influence in political ma
nipulations in various parts of our
country. In many eases, elections
are absolutely under the control of
the liquor trust. He sipoke particu
larly of the liquor lobbying which
has recently taken place in the city
Mr. Swadener told his hearers of
the present status of the amendment
in its ratification by States; showing
that this is the crucial time in the
warfare against alcoholism, and
pointing out the necessity for imme
diate action on the question.
The speaker impressed his audi
ence as much by his earnestness, as
by the content of his message, and
one was certainly fortunate to have
been among his hearers.
AIAIA CHILTON LEADS Y. W. C. A.
On Thursday evening the Y. W. C.
A. was in charge of the Mission
Study Committee Alma Chilton
talked to the Association on "Our
Life's Purpo'se." She chose as her
Scripture reading John 3:13-22.
Miss Chilton commenced her talk
by saying that God's purpose in the
world was Christianity and that He
must work thru individuals in order
to attain that purpose. His plan
must fail if we fail to help; He is
depending on us.
DIES AT HIS HOME
Minister Long' Known and Well Be-
loved by Guilford Students
On Thursday morning, January
81st, Albert Peele passed away quiet-
ly in his home after a brief illness
He was in his eightieth year
The death of Albert Peele brought
real sorrow to Guilford College. His
long connection with the Friends' re-
ligious meeting, at this place, where
most of his li'fe as a minister of the
Gosipel was spent, brought hini into
sympathy with all Guilford
and his cheerful, happy spirit and his
genuineness and nobility of charac
ter made him a valued part of Guil
ford. He was one time a teacher in
the school before iit became a col
lege; and in him Guilford ever had
a faithful and valiant friend.
Many students attended his funer
al, held February Ist; and but for
the extremely unfavorable weather,
many more from near by towns and
from the country around would have
?hown by their presence their warm
appreciation of the life and charac
ter of so excellent a man.
His funeral was held on Tuesday
afternoon in the Yearly Meeting
House owned partly by the Yearly
Meeting and partly by New Garden
Monthly Meeting, in both of which
Meetings Albert Peele had been a
leader for nearly half a centurv.
A brief account of his li'fe, prepar
ed by Professor J F. Davis, was read
by the pasitor, J. Edgar Williams,
who made principal address. Dr.
Sylvester Newlin, of Hign Point, read
a very appropriate selection from the
Bible and offered a prayer. A rep
resentative from Kernersville Month
ly Meeting, of which Albert Peele
bad been pastor for the past two
years, gave an appreciative testimony
of his service among Friends in that
Meeting. Lev,-is W. McFarland, of
High Point, bore witness to the en
couragement and help he had re
ceived from his association with Al
beit Peele. Roxie Dixon White and
L. L. Hobbs, Dow members of New
f T ai den Monthly Meeting, spoke;
Roxie D. White reading a poem writ
ten by her on the event of Albert.
Peele's seventy-eighth birthday, and
completed uipon his data.
L. L. Hobbs stated that he had
long been an intimate friend of the
deceased, and that lie regarded his
life as a great sermon, which in no
possible way could be contradicted.
Alt ho we might misinterpret and
nisunderstand words, there was no
way of being deceived and misled by
the upright, genuine, and devoited
life which Albert Peele has lived be
fore ail the peoiple among whom his
lot had been cast. In all the exer
cises there was manifested a pro
found resipect and esteem for the dis
tinguished friend who in a long and
useful life won the admiration and
love of all who knew him.
