DURHAM "Y" DEFEATS
r i he First Game on the Local Floor.
Guilford lost tire second basket
ball game of the season, January
12th, when the Quaker quint met the
fast Durham "Y" team on the local
floor. The game was a hard fought
contest, but the visitors fairly out
chased the locals in team work, which
accounted for the fifteen point mar
gin held by the Durham men at the
end of the game. This was the fin
est exhibition of team work shown
on the local floor in several years.
This fact accounts for no outstanding
star. The entire team worked as
one. However, Mangum led in the
scoring, he having six field goals
and two fouls to his credit. He was
followed closely by Perry and Knight
who had six and five field goals re
spectively. Cline a former N. C.
State man played a wonderful game
at guard he also scored six points
from the field, all of which were
For Guilford Captain Frazier was
the outstanding star. The forward
scored nineteen of his team's points.
Big "Zac" played a hard game but
was kept from shooting by the ex
cellent guarding of Cline. Cox also
guarded well. It is not to be thought
that Guilford's basket ball season is
to be a failure on account of this de
feat, for the Quakers will hardly
meet _with r/j formidable an aggrega
tion again this season.

BASKET BALL SQUADS ORGAN
IZED INTO LEAGUES
Everybody has a Chance to Play
The interest that has been shown
in basket ball since the holidays has
been marked. Not only has the var
sity been putting in some hard prac
tice in prepaoration for the season's
contests, but the eight quints, which
have recently been organized by each
Doak for a series of inter division
games have been doing some work
that deserves special mention.
Coach Doak's purpose in arrang
ing these games in to stimulate in
terest in this sport among those who
do not ordinarily take part in ath
letics. Under this plan much hidden
talent will most likely be brought
to light. Every man in the college
will have a chance to play as a' mem
ber of one of these teams. Playing
on a team is always a stimulant
to one to do his best. And those
who show up best in these games
will eventually compose the material
from which the varsity will be se
The schedule is arranged so that
each of the eight teams will play
every other team, thus making twen

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., JANUARY 2(3, 1921
PROFESSOR .MILLS LEADS
Y. M. C. A. PRAYER
At the last meeting of the young
Men's Christian Association, Profess
or Mark C. Mills gave a short dis
course on things of general interest
to the young men. Professor Mills
in a mild way criticised the local or
ganization for some of its failures.
The leader's talk was not all criti
cism. He made many inspirational
remarks to the boys in college, trying
to instill into them a knowledge of
their surroundings, the significance
of their obligations to the people at
home, or the college which th'ey now
attend and to the communities which
they will enter on leaving school.

SALOONS AND COLLEGE
"The closing of saloons is sending
many young people to college." Thus
declared William Jennings Bryan in
a recent interview with a reporter
for the Ohio State University Lan
tern. "Five years ago we spent
three times as much money on in
toxicating liquors as we did on edu
cation. A part of that money at
least has been diverted to educational
channels. Five years ago less than
ten per cent of all the pupils in the
common grades entered high school,
and not over two per cent ever went
to college. If only four per cert now
go to college, we can see wl y the
university halls are filled to over
