BABE BALL PRACTICE BEGINS.
Crack of the Bat Again Heard on
After a successful basket ball sea
son in which every game was hotly
contested with close scores, Coach
Doak's doughty desciiples have turn
ed ,to base ball and a good crowd of
candidates for the team is appearing
for the afternoon practice. The sea
son will open next Thursday, the
14th, when - will meet Ruth
erford on the local diamond.
Although several of last year's
champion team are not back, the new
material is showing up well and
there is every prospect that this
year's team will be up to the usual
Guilford standard. With Captain
Zachary in the box we iwill have little
to fear from our opponents. The
other candidates for the hurling slab
are Fort, John White and Kendall.
Huick Ballinger will be in his old
place back of the bat with Stafford
ready to take his [place when neces
sary. Stafford is new at the job, but
is rapidly developing into a real back
stoip. At first base it loJks like Cur
tis Newlin and Curtis only. For sec
ond base Hubbard and Fox are can
didates with both having a good
chance to make the position. At
third Algie Newlin will be back at
his old job. Joe Reddick will prob
ably hang out between second and
third and Joe's throw to first can be
depended on as usual. Among those
trying out for the out ft fid positions
are Johnson, Boren, Fitzgerald, Bul
la and McCracken.
FORCEFUL. MESSAGE FROM
PROF. DAVIS AT Y. M. C. A.
(Continued from first page)
the real interpretation is crowded
out. Some insist that Jesus came
into the world to establish the king
dom of God by means of force. He
did not come to bring enmity. His
wa6 a mission of sympathy, love, and
good will. God is not an imperial
Caesar, exacting tribute from us. He
is a God of love and He draws us
with bonds of love. True, Jesu6 said
ware would continue, but he did not
say that he came to bring war. The
leader closed with a strong exhorta
tion to Christian living. Never sow
wild oats. You don't want any tares
in your harvest. If you want a hap
py old age, you can't look back upon
misdeeds. We want the past to be a
dream of happiness. Strive to attain
,to the ipearl of great price.

the easit end of the builling was for
the boys and the room above it was
their lodging room. The room in the
west and was ...e girls' school-room
and the room above it was the girls'
lodging-room. Between the school
rooms on the first floor, were the
parlor, the office and book-room, the
superintendent and matron's room
and one other small room. Above
these rooms on the second floor were
the teachers and guest rooms. The
dining room was located as at pres
ent, but was not so large as it is now.
A partition extended north and south
through the middle of it. The boys
ate on the east side of the partition
and the girls on the west side. Where
the present stairway and marrow hall
is a covered brick walk connected
the main building with the dining
room and kitchen; and a well on
either side of this walk furnished
water for the boys and girls respec
tively. The dining room and kitch
en were only one story high.
In the main building there were
no closets, but a narrow plank nailed
to the four large posts in the center
of lodging room and supplied with
hooks, took the place of closets.
Each girl was assigned a certain
number of hooks on iwhich to hang
her wearing apparel. This arrange
ment answered every purpose, since,
in those days, no one was allowed a
very elaborate wardrobe, and the
homespun of '37 did not crush as the
more sheer material of later years.
One of the first twen'ty-five girls tes
tifies that she had two every day
dresses of calico and one best dress.
Bach giri .had her own tin wash basin
and they carried the water in buck
ets from the weAl. They arose at 5
o'clock in the morning, breakfasted
at 6, dined at 12, had supper at 6 p.
m. and went to bed about 9 o'clock.
School opened at 8:30, and the stu
dents were given enough to do to
keep them busy. One man told me
that he recited in eight different sub
jects each day.
Were the students happy with so
few accommodations and the very
stringent regulations for conduct?
The testimony of one of the first 25
was "that the longer ithey stayed the
better they liked it."
From that early period of the
school's history came many substan

and women who have borne the re

At one time the clerks of five of the
Yearly Meetings in the West were

tinued under the one roof, with
slight changes from time to time un
til 1883, when it was decided ito raise
the grade of the institution and place
it on a broader and more substantial
basis. To accomplish this ipunpose
the new Yearly Meeting house was
secured for school purposes, as was
given in your columns recently. At
this time the name, "Founder's Hall"
was adopted for the old building and
a mansard roof wias added making
the building three instead of two
stories high and the whole space was
opened for girls. The dining room
was enlarged and 'the whole house
refurnished. The school was now
on the upgrade that led to the Col
lege, which it reached in 1888.
Changes now came rapidly. In
1905 a new kitchen was built and
the dining room still farther enlarg
ed to accommodate the increasing
In 1908 a complete renovation of
the main building was made. The
whole interior was rearranged and
hard wood floors laid in the iplace of
the amuck splintered pine ones. The
front porch and porto cochere were
aaded. The modern equipments
have made it Very comfortable and
attractive, a building which is not
surpassed by any of our denomina
tional colleges. An old studenit on a
recent visit to the college remarked
that nothing looked natural except
Some of the families that were
represented the first day of the
school were not without a represen

could be written in fulllit would sur

pathos any work of fiction now be

the flower of the Yearly Meeting and
of other churches and nations ae

ments that have endured a life-time;
here has been (moulded characters
whose influence has been nation
wide; and here, we trust, our eons
and daughters will come and make
yet more far-reaching the earnest
search for truth th'at was begun in
