THE GUILFORDIAN VOLUME IV. GUILFORD DEFEATS DAVIDSON QUINT BUT LOSES TO THE GAME COCKS Guilford balanced up with David son for this season by defeating the Presbyterian quint on the Quaker floor February 24 by a score of 22 to 16. The game was characterized by no sipectacular play'ing, but by hard, steady 'Work on the part of every 'man on Guilford's team. The Presbyterian quint was never in the lead, but it kept such a narrow mar gin between its score and that of the Quakers that the game was quite in teresting and very exciting at times. The Guilford quint displayed team work superior to that of the visi tors, and to this the victory for the former may be attributed. Groome and Jones, for Guilford, played the best game of the evening. Though they scored only two field goals each, their passing was excel lent and their defensive work also was commendable. Hubbard at right forward for Guilford, during the first half, played a good game. Though lie w.as handicapped to some extent by ihis extremely light weight, he pocketed three field goals. Ballinger replaced Hubbard in the se'cond half. Zachary, who played forward in the tw r o games previous to this one, played a good game at guard. The first half ended with Guilford one point in the lead Hengeveldt, for Davidson, who was not in the game during the first half, played a good game at center, but 'he was un able to get the tip-off over (Groome. McAllister also excelled for David son at left guard. Toward the close of the last period Davidson made a strong attempt to overcome the Quaker lead, but were unsuccessful, (Continued on fourth page) MRS. IX)AK ENTERTAINS BASKETBALL TEAMS After the Trinity-Guilford game iMrs. Charles Doak was the delight ful hostess to the members of the two teams, at her home. The rivalry which was so plainly shown the hour before in the gym nasium was transformed into a last ing feeling of friendships which wa manifested by peals of laughter from •both sides. Upon arriving the guests were 'Shown into the dining room. They 'were so arranged at 'the tables that -each Guilford man had for his right 'hand pardner a Trinity player. The 'following delicious three-course din ner was served: Grape fruit, salads, wafers, pickles, 'lemon gelatin, whipped cream, fruit fcake. Between each course toasts of good will and responses were given 'by the captains, managers and the coaches of the two teams. Following 'these Mrs. Charles Doak gave a most 'appealing tribute to the Guilford and Trinity basketball men of 1917, now in the service of the United 'States. GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., MARCH 6, 1918 FREDERICK RAY CINEMALOGUES "Pilgrim's Progress" and "Parsifal" In Motion Pictures, Music and Song to Appear at Guilford. The Guilliord College student body and community will have the great est treat of the year on March 13 and 14, when the famous Frederick Ray Cinemalogues will be shown in the ■auditorium at Memorial Hall. ."Pil grim's Progress" will oe shown on the first night and 'Parsifal" on the second. The two motion pictures rep resent an investment of SIIB,OOO. 'They are accompanied by a lecture and music and singing of an unusu ally high order. In engaging Frederick Ray the col lege runs no risks of disappointing the audience with an unknown at traction. These lectures have been given during the last five years in some of the largest auditoriums in America. They have been given this winter in most of the southern col leges, and many of the Y. M. C. A.'s of the larger cities. All the testimo nials are most enthusiastic. The success of these lectures is due to the perfect blending of story, pic ture, music and song. Frederick Ray is well equipped for this partic ular field of endeavor. With fine presence and magnetic personality, ■lie handles his subject and his audi ence with equal ability. His well told stories and incidental singing, together with Frances Ray's musical accompaniments, would, without even pictorial accessory, create an evening of enjoyment. The subjects chosen for these cinemalogues appeal very strongly to those who really en joy the highest and best in litera ture, music and pictorial art. In this day when much trash, horse play and mushy sentiment (predom inate in the average entertainment and the dexterous hurling of custard pies is a prominent feature in many film presentations, it is refreshing to turn to artistic efforts wluu sat isfy our nobler senses and leave us with a consciousness of an evening well spent. Tickets will soon be on sale. Tick ets for one night will be 35' c each, and for the two nights, 50c each. IBSEN AND MAETERLINCK AT THE LITERARY CLUB The 'Literary Club is continuing its study of modern drama. Two weeks ago Mrs. Hobbs concluded the study of Ibsen with an interesting .paper on "Peer Gynt" to which she gave a very clever and original interpreta tion. Mr. Guess then discussed the "Life and Works of Bjonstedt Bjorn sen." Last Wednesday evening the 'club oegan a study of Maeterlinck. Miss Ruth Coble gave a very interesting interpretation and appreciation of "The Deatlh of Tintogiles" and Miss Roberts read a paper on "Maeter linck, the Mystic Dramatist." Miss Clark wad voted a member of the club. PROF. BRINTON THE MINUTE MAN Delaware Canoe Trip Hastily Sub stituted For Expected Lecture. Dr. Wagstaff, professor of .English history at the University of North Carolina, who was to deliver a lec ture Saturday evening, March 2, was unable to fill his appointment be cause of a train wreck on the Greens boro-dtaleigh railroad. A few minutes before the audience assembled in Memorial Hall news came that Dr. Wagstaff would be unable to get here for the above stated reason. Prof. Brinton was the man of the hour. "See Europe if You Will Not See America First," might be well applied to the set of lantern slides that were shown. Prof. Brinton first showed a set of slides taken while he was on a canoeing trip down the Del aware river. The trip of two hun dred miles was made in a sixteen foot canoe in ten days, without a single upset, which was very unusual. The spea'ker told of several instances that were very exciting. As they were passing through some of the most dangerous rapids, several times the canoe was almost swamped by the waves that came over the sides; in other places they were almost strand ed on rocks. The views of the head waters of the river were beautiful, the lower chains of, the Catskill mountains adding much to the attractiveness of the scenery. The pictures taken around the Delaware water top were especially interesting. The river here leaves the mountains and wind 6 its way out Into the more thickly popu lated country. A number of other beautiful slides illustrating American places of inter est were then shown. Then a very hurried trip was taken (Continued on second page) QUAKERISM IX CHRISTIAN EN- BEAVOR In the iSabbath evening Christian Endeavor meeting some special sub jects were discussed. The relation of the Friends Church to Missions was taken up by Ida Millis. She told why the Friends believe in mission work, wlhat this work ought to be to the 'church, and the goals aimed at in mission work. Prof. J. F. Davis followed with a thoro discussion of the Friends attitude towards war and the reason why Friends cannot con scientiously participate. College at tendance among Quaker boys and girls with the aim that there should be fifty out of every thousand mem bers in college, was the central idea of Dr. Ilobbs' talk. The motto of the Young Friends Board is "The entire 'Church at its entire task." Ruth Co ble ably described the work of the \oung Friends. Mrs. Hobbs closed these special discussions with a talk on >why Friends shou'ld maintain their convictions in all religious mat ters. This meeting was especially helpful and instructive to all who at tended. MRS. HOBBS AND MRS. DAVIS SPEAK At a mass meeting of tlhe girls, held on February 2, Mrs. Hobbs talked to the members of the Student Government Association on the gen eral principles underlying the honor system. "It is much better," said Mrs. Hobbs, "to control ourselves than to be ruled from the outside." Gov ernment from without does not tend to develop citizenship. But in order that tihere may be a system of self government each person under the system, must conform to legislation by which the greatest general good may be attained. Each one must, in a measure, put aside personal preju dices and petty complaints—in short, that antagonistic state of mind which •results from 'chronic kicking and fault-finding. Is there any reason why we slhould expect always to have our own way? The best kind of tonic for this dissatifaction of mind is to cease growling and live ourselves as we think other people ought to live. If people aren't acting to suit us, then we should at least do right ourselves. "If the school doesn't suit you," said Mrs. Ilobbs, "are you sure that you suit the sdhool?" If for any reason we do not like 'conditions about us, then it is up to us to better them or go elsewhere. We need to cultivate a spirit of 'loyalty—loyalty to that which we know is best. There was a general impression that Mrs. Hobbs' message to the girls at this meeting was one of special in terest and importance, and every girl who iheard her was strengthened and helped. Mrs. Davis to Student Government Association on "Being True to Your self." "We a)ll work for tihe things in which we are interested," said Mrs. Davis, "and I want you to be inter ested in and work for student gov ernment, We are wrestling with .ourselves. We all must face lack of thot, lack of self-control. If we fail to build on truthfulness we are put ting brick into our structure which will crumble. Hypocrisy is one of the greatest sins and student govern ment makes every girl stand on her own honor." Every individual should have her own creed and the beet one is "true to self." "We should be gen uine," said the speaker. "When we fail to choose the highest we are not ■being true to ourselves." Mrs. Davis then emphasized our ioyalty to Guilford, and said that each olass should do something to ■make iGuilford a bright spot in mem ory. The speaker closed by saying that a person who goes out from ■college and does not have self 'con trol, is like a ship without a rudder, i Such a one is no good in the •world. She is not at her best. The annual Student Volunteer Conference will be held at Elon' Col lege March 8-10 inclusive. Guilford will be well represented at this con ference by Misses Addie Morris and Tot'ten Moton and Alma Chilton. NUMBER 20
