Some Closely Contested Games Fea
ture Annual Visit to Pal
In spite of the fact that only one
game was won out of the four played
on the southern trip last week the
college has much reason to be satis
lied with the record of the team. All
the games were closely contested and
the first and last games were lost by
errors such as only a green team
which has not yet found itself would
likely to make. The last game, that
with Furman showed much improve
ment over previous efforts. Manager
Smithdeal had some hard luck with
his carefully arranged schedule, as
Belmont cancelled at the last minute
and it was too late to secure another
opponent. This unfortunate action
on the part of Belmont leaves a
financial deficit which must be made
up during the remainder of the sea
son by increased support of the team
by the college and its friends.
The first game of the trip with the
University of South Carolina at Co
lumbia was an interesting game
throughout and resulted in a victory
for U. S. C. by a score of 5-2. Lind
ley, in the box for Guilford, showed
goou iorm and kepr me hits scat
tered. Guilford secured 8 hits, but
had difficulty in getting the men
around. The feature of the game
was a home run by Carroll in the
seventh with Johnson on base.

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. 0., MAY 7, 1919
Y. W. C. A. CABINET
AT TRAINING COUNCIL
The week-end, April 25-27, was
one of great pleasure and inspiration
to the Y. W. C. A. cabinet. It was
spent at Greensboro College for
Women at a state Y. W. C. A. Cab
inet training council. Everyone who
went came back feeling that she was
better prepared to carry on her work
The meetings consisted of lec
tures and discussion groups. Some
of the themes for these were: "City
Y. W. C. A. Work," by Mrs. F. C.
Abbot, from Charllotte; "Child La
bor," by Mrs. Swift, of Greensboro;
discussions on Y. W. C. A. work in
different colleges, led by secretaries
and student delegates. There were
some very pleasant social coming
just at the time when one felt the
most need of recreation. One of the
most enjoyable of these was an au
tomobile ride through the city Sat
The meetings were in charge of
Misses Edna Griffin and Elsie Heller,
two student secretaries of this field.
Too much cannot be said of the
splendid manner in which the G. C.
W. girls entertained their visitors.
Everyone co-operated beautifully
[ and made each guest feel at home
while there. The cabinet came
away feeling that their time had
been profitably spent and that they
had gained a big inspiration for
j their new work.
t WEBS DEBATE INCOME TAX
The Webs held their regular meet
ing on Friday evening, May 2. The
program proved to r>e a success in
every way. The question under dis
cussion was: "Resolved that an in
come tax is a desirable part of a
scheme of taxation." The affirma
tive speakers, C. Robinson and J.
Brown, were successful in arguing
that no other plan of taxation would
be as successful as the income tax,
and that it puts the poor man on an,
equal basis with the rich man. O.
Stafford and P. Trotter ably de
fended the negative by advancing
the argument that the income tax
is unfair to the high salaried man,
and that it is unpopular and causes
the government unlimited trouble.
After the debate Mr. Willard's op
tional added much Interest to the
The society welcomed Prof. Ans

and was benefited by his instructive
and encouraging remarks.

Seldom has the Sophomore Class
had as jovial an evening as was given
by Mrs. Binford on last Wednesday
evening. Even such a brilliant class
as that of 19 21 found it difficult to
prove equal to the ingenious games
devised by the hostess. Edward Hol
lady alone could recall the names of
forty-five automobiles. No one could
complete a long poem by inserting
in blanks the names of certain parts
of an automobile. Yet in outlining
on cloth various beasts of the field,
all proved the artistic gifts of the
class to the unique. Similarly, all
did justice to the refreshments.
Quaint anecdotes, sparkling repartee,
and witty conversation were heard
constantly all through the evening.
Fortunately, memory preserves
the evening to the guests as a source
of future pleasure.

Owing to the condition of the

At last their searches were re

EIGHT WEEK CLUB TRAINING
The Eight Week Club Training
Class was organized Thursday even
ing, May 1, under the splendid lead
ership of Miss Nat.s, head of the
Domestic Science Department. This
training class, consisting of a few
wide-awake girls, prepares them to
lead clubs in their home communi
ties. It was realized that there is
nothing worth while which should
not be passed on to friends at home,
so the girls are going to put to prac
tical use some of our knowledge,
gained through these meetings.
Some of the practical subjects to be
discussed are: Home and Home
Care, Wild Flowers, New Game, Do

vice Committee of the Y. W. C. A.
urges that every girl, feeling an in
terest in this kind of work, attend
all the meetings of the Training
Class, held in the Y. W. C. A. room
at 4:15 o'clock each afternoon.
Those present at the first meeting
were: Misses Florence Cox, Eula
Hacket, Thelma Cloud, Luna Taylor,
Mabel Ward and Alma Chilton.
