IN FINAL OF SERIES
The final baseball game of the
series between the Crimsons and
Grays was played last Saturday af
ternoon. This game gave to the
Grays the third victory out of five
games. Since the series began there
had been much interest and enthusi
asm shown. Both the Crimsons and
Grays had won two games, and a
fifth was necessary to decide the
At 3 o'clock, when Founder's bell
announced the game, the athletic
field was dotted with twenty joyous
and enthusiastic girls, practising for
a real game. And this game proved
to be none other. More "pep" was
displayed in it than any of the pre
ceding games. Improvement in the
playing of each individual was also
noticeable. The most spectacular
event of the game was a three-base
hit made by Altha Zachary. Both
pitchers had the usual good control
of their wings. The game ended
with the score 21-18 in the Gray's

Throughout the season perhaps
the most noticable feature was the
good spirit manifested by the girls
who played At no time was there
any signs of undue rivalry between
the two teams,. With such a splen
did spirit any thing is possible in the
line of athletics. Every girl has
been backing the games whole
heartedly, thus enabling baseball to
be put on a firm basis on the first
trial. It is hoped that the girls will
carry into basket ball this same zeal
and enthusiasm which has brought
success to baseball.
CATS DEFEATS RATS 28-5.
Another very interesting practice
basket ball game was played Friday
The men all showed much "pep"
and the game was played with much
spirit from beginning to end.
All the players show that they
have improved. The line up:
H. Raiford r. f C. Stout
Z. Dye 1. f C. Ralison
C. Macon c G. Mcßane
T. Cox r. g G. Hodgin
L. Caeey 1. g R. Davis
C. Ralison was the star for the
entire game and a!i the new men
are developing into real players.
Prof. Carroll is hard at work de
veloping a varsity team. Captain
Jonas is trying to get the boys in
(fine shape for the coming week and
with all the boys behind him Guil
ford College will have a good basket
ball team. Look out for the big
game South Section vs. College.
GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C M NOVEMBER 27, 1918
Speaks of Part Colleges Played in
War Work Campaign.
Mr. C. L. Johnson, State Y. M. C.
A. Secretary, talked to the Y. M. and
Y. W. C. A.'s for a few minutes on
last Thursday evening
Mr. Johnson spoke of the splendid
way in which these organizations are
responding to the request for friends
to relieve the suffering caused by
war conditions. The colleges are do
ing all that is expected of them. Stu
dent bodies are giving on a far great
er scale than they did one year ago
and the gifts have already far ex
ceeded the amounts asked for. Many
of these gifts represent real sacrifices
on the part of the students. Now
that the war is over it is more than
ever necessary to keep alive this
willingness to give, to work, and to
sacrifice. Now that America's influ
ence along the lines of trade and
commerce is increasing it is her
golden opportunity to serve and do
for other nations what she has not
yet been able to do. If te meet
these opportunities and utilize our
privileges we must make our col
leges the centers for training lead
ers for this work. To do this work
before us we must do better work
and build stronger characters than
ever before. We should be thankful
for our share in the reconstruction
program. Nations are no longer iso
lated and the opportunity for exten
sive work for Christ has never been
so great as now.
FOURTH JOINT TENNIS
LaSt Saturday afternoon witnessed
a very successful joint tennis tourna
ment on the courts back of Cox Hall.
The same plan of procedure was ad
hered to as on previous times—the
winners progressing to the next
court and exchanging partners, and
the losers remaining where they
were. This tournament, like its pre
decessors, did much to increase in
terest and enthusiasm for tennis
among both the boys and girls. The
healthy and unaffected social inter
course, the friendly but intense riv
alry of the players and the vigorous
and stimulating physical exercise
have made these affairs the most suc-\
cessful and worth while events held
at Guilford. Those taking part were
Miss Edwards, Miss Roberts, Jessie
Cox, Edna Raiford, Katherine Har
mon, Jean Whitney, Clara Blair, Lu
lu Raiford, Joe White, Leslie Bar
rett, B, L. White, Earl McFarland,
John Taylor, Joe Taylor, W. Hester,
Prof. Brinton. Eleven rounds were
played. Of these Prof. Brinton won
in eleven; Clara Blair in seven; Miss
Edwards, Joe White, Joe Taylor and
Lulu Raiford in six; and Edna Rai
ford, Miss Roberts, B. L. White,
John Taylor and W. Hester in five.

In the Alumni number of the 1918
Guilford College Bulletin the follow
ing errors are to be corrected. The
name of Joseph D. Cox, who was
elected to membership on the Execu
tive Committee of the Association
in 1917 and whose term therefore
expires in 1920, does not appear in
the Bulletin. This mistake occurred
last year and because it was not cor
rected has been repeated.
The address of G. Raymond Allen,
'95, is Hashbrook Heights, New Jer
Leonard C. Van Noppen, '9O, is
living at Bright Waters, New York.
Alumni are requested to make

JONAS ELECTED CAPTAIX.
At a recent meeting of the Ath
letic Cabinet, Garland Jonas was
elected temporary captain of the
basket ball team. The election of a
permanent captain will take place
immediately after the first game of
the season. This course was render
ed necessary by the fact that theie
were no members of last year's var

Thanksgiving Harvests in Many
Lands Represented With Fine
One of the most pleasant enter
tainments that the Websterian Lit
erary Society ever enjoyed was ten
dered it by the Zatasian Society on
Saturday evening, Nov. 23.
Memorial Hall was elaborately
decorated with cedar, with here and
there a pumpkin surrounded by ears
of Indian corn. The president of the
Zatasians met the "Webs" at the en
trance and escorted them to their
respective seats, after which the pro
gram was rendered.
Miss Hockett, the president, gave
the visitors a very cordial welcome,
making special mention of one old
Websterian who gave up his college
work to answer his country's call
and died from wounds in France.
The program in every detail was
an excellent one. Its intrinsic value,
its noble character, and the admir
able way in which it was rendered
gave every "Web" a desire to sit at
the feet of his sisters.
The program consisting of five
scenes represented five Thanksgiving
harvests. The first recalled in a very
impressive way the story of Rutn
gleaning in the fields of Boa 2. Irs
were depicted. Eight maidens grace
the second Grecian Harvest rites
fully laid at the feet of the goddess
Derneter the first fruits of the year.
In the Old English Harvest Home
scene the finding of the Cora Baby
was vividly illustrated. In the In
dian Corn Harvest next shown the
costumes, dances, and Indian harv
est rites were brought out with
splendid artistic effect.
The last number on the program
but not the least was Thanksgiving
in America in 1918, when all nations
gathered around Columbia and gave
thanks that her helping hand had
done so much to bring so great a war
to a successful close. America was
then sung, after which all 6et out
for the valleys and glens of Found
ers, where the students' parloi and
the Zatasian Society Hall h,il been
transformed into a oeautiful recep
tion room, decorated with the colors
of both societies.
Here where the groups had assem
bled under the mellow lights the fol
lowing menu was served:
Of all the happy times the "Webs"
ever enjoyed this was the happiest.
When the time for departure came
every "Web" knew that hib evening,
as the guest of the Zar.e.?ians. had
been very pleasantly spent.
