THE GUILFORDIAN VOLUME VII DURHAM "Y" DEFEATS GUILFORD 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 long shots. 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. The line-up: Guilford: Zachary, r.f ; Frazier, l.f. Newlin, c.; Wall, r.g.; Cox. l.g. Durham "Y": Mangum, r.f.; Perry, 1.f.; Knight, c; Cline, r.g; Heplin. l.g. Field goals—Mangum 6: Perry 6, Knight 5, Cline 3, Heplin 2. Starling 1, Zachary 4, Frazier 7, Newlin 2. Wall 1. Foul goals, Mangum 2, Frazier 5. Substitute, Starling for Perry, Ref eree Stuart. 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 lected. The schedule is arranged so that each of the eight teams will play every other team, thus making twen (Continued on page 3) GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., JANUARY 2(3, 1921 PROFESSOR .MILLS LEADS Y. M. C. A. PRAYER MEETING 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. SYLVESTER JAMES SPEAKS TO NEW GARDEN MEETING Sylvester James, at the present time, one of the secretaries in the Friend's Forward Movement Work, and for many years a missionary to Cuba, spoke to the Friends of the Guilford community and a small group of the college people, last Sunday night. Mr. James has been in North Carolina a number of days in the interest of Foreign mission work. He is a nephew of Dr. Thomas Newlin who at one time was presi dent of Guilford College. Mr James spoke briefly concerning the iVriends' worK in Cuba and Mexi co, and of the needs in these places and in the United States, among the Indians and among the negroes. CAMPUS NOTES Misses Martha Lewis and Sadie Thompson of Winston-Salem were visitors at the college Saturday and Sunday. Miss Ethel Lovett, Secretary to the college President during two school years from the fall of 1918 to the spring of 1920, was a visitor at the college during Saturday and Sunday. Miss Edith Harrison spent Satur day night and Sunday at Guilford. Many old students and alumni wit nessed the game between the Win ston Y. M. C. A. team and Guilford last Saturday night, January 22nd. Among these were Tuby Casey, Ed gar Mcßane, John Taylor, Miss Grace Taylor, David White, Clean Smith deal, Miss Clara Blair. J. T. Zachary, one of the main pitchers of Manager Griffith's Wash ington American baseball club during the past two years, lias left school for this year. "Zach" as he is generally known will begin training for the coming season the first of March. The fact that his spring term school work would be but little more than begun at the end of Feb ruary, accounts fcr his leaving col lege at this time. GUILFORD POST OFFICE Guilford has a new Post Office, all her own! It is located in Memorial Hall opposite the Chemistry and Biol ogy lecture room. There is a new, shining box for each student and how they long daily to see it full of mail. Miss Gertrude Ilobbs is postmistress. WINSTON "Y" DEFEATS GUILFORD 34 to 28 In a hard fought and close game Guilford lost to the strong Winston Y. M. C. A. team Saturday night. Lindley and Mackie playing their first Varsity game started the scor ing with a whirlwind attack that put Guilford in the lead at the be ginning of the bame. This lead was overcome however just before the half ended, the score standing 12 to 12. Again at the beginning of the second half Guilford started off in the lead but was able to maintain it only a short time before Winston passed the Quakers by. When the final whistle blew the "Y" team had rolled up 34 points to the Quakers' 28. Guilford was very weak on shoot ing foul goal only two b'eing pock eted out of ten attempts. Martin for Winston succeeded in dropping five through the basket out of nine trials. For Guilford Mackie, Lindley and Cox played stellar ball. Clay com ing in as a substitute for Winston was the best individual scorer se curing six field goals. Martin also played a splendid game at guard. Line-up: Guilford Winston "Y" Lindley, right forward, Benbow Frazier, Left forward, Mackie, center Groome Cox, left guard Martin Wall, right guard, Jones Substitutions, Guilford; IRail'ord for Cox, Newlin for Raiford. Mc- Bane for Newlin, Winston "Y" Clay for Benbow. Benbow for Martin. Referee—Stuart NEW COURSES GIVEN THIS SEMESTER A number of new courses are be ing given this spring.

SALOONS AND COLLEGE STUDENTS "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 flowing." . —Exchange. MARCUS KELLERMAN The recital given in the auditorium at Memorial Hall Saturday evening, January fifteenth, by Marcus Keller man was one of the best entertain ments that has been given at Guil ford this year. Mr. Kellerman is an Armeridian baritone, formerly of Royal Opera, Berlin and of Hammer stein. Manhattan Opera Company of New York. He has a voice of power and great beauty and his experience in the world of music is unusually exten sive, not only as an opera singer and recital ist of distinction, but an orato rio singer who has a fine record to his credit. Although the songs sung by Mr. Kellerman were given by a finished artist, their charm was enhanced a great deal by the personality of the singer. He is endowed with many of those qualities that attract an audi ence. His personal magnetism and the sincerity, sympathy and humor which was expressed through his singing won the admiration of his audience. The progi'am selected by Mr. Kel -I'erman was appreciated very much by the students. It was one that all could understand. Only two numbers were sung in a foreign language. However when Sylvia was sung as an encore Mr. Kellerman captured the hearts of his listenei's. The playing of the accompanist, M iss Beatrice Lynn Byrd of Guilford College added to the excellence of the program. Miss Byrd played es pecially well. The following is the program: I. a. Today and Tomorrow—Homer N. Bartlett. b. Alone—Winter Watts. c. My Choice—Charles Denee d. The Last Hour—A. Walter Kramer. e. Inter -Nos—Alexander Mac- Fay den. f. If I Were a Rose —Edward Hesselberg. 11. Aria—Prologus to the Opera "Paggalicci" —Leoncavalloh 111. a. Douglas Gordon.. Hamilton b. My Lady of Dreams—M. Daniels. c. Darkness and Light—P. A.
