NORTH CAROLINA STATE COL
LEGE TEAM BOWS TO THE
In a hard fought and exciting
game, the Guilford five defeated the
strong N. C. State basket ball team
last Thursday night, by the score of
21 to 22. 'throughout the entire
game the visitors kept the score near
ly tied, and at the end of the first
half the locals team lead by a margin
of only three points. Although out
weighted (several pounds) to man
the Quakers by superior team work
were able to register the nine points
which entitled them to the game.
For Guilford Captain Frazier was
the outstanding star of the game. J.
W. Frazier also played stellar ball,
and Lindley succeeded in dropping
seven out of thirteen through the
basket from fouls.
Deal for N. C. State commanded
the most attention. The regular cen
ter of neither of the two teams was
able to be in the game. Both are
on the hospital list.
At no time did the outcome seem
doubtful. Although hard pressed at
times, the local team always increas
ed the lead just when the visitor.-?
had visions of winning the game.

DAVIDSON SMOTHERS GUIL
FORD ON THE PRESBY
After handing a defeat to N. C.
State, the Quaker basketball squad
left in high spirits for a two-game
trip to Davidson and Charlotte.
On Friday night, January 28th the
quint engaged Davidson in a contest,
which in manner of procedure might
letter be called a football game than
a basketball contest. The game was
marked by numerous, plunges, stiff
arming, side-stepping and tackling of
both teams. The Davidson five, how
ever greatly out weighed the Guil
ford men and this accounts partly
for the heavy score piled up around
the Guilford five. Davidson has a
good team. For Davidson. Roberts.
Remefelt and Schenk played the best
ball, while Frazier and Cox were
pi-obably the most effective for
Guilford. The final score was 51 to
14 in favor of Davidson.

ahead two points only to be tied
again by Guilford. Within two min

entire Quaker five.
G. Frazier was easily the outstand

points. Marsh and Stewart, the "Y"
