The New Order.
To those who have been at Guil
ford for three or four years, and
hav seen voluntary athletics given
a thorough test, the new order is very
gratifying. The campus scene
after four o'clock is quite different
from the picture of last year. Last
year we> saw a small band holding
down the benches on the atheletic
field during base ball practice, and
a greater part of the remainder of
the boys, infesting the dormitory
steps, or loitering about the local
grocery store. Now the visitor sees
besides the baseball squad working
vigorously every day of the week, a
track squad hard at work, a volley
ball squad as busy as if this was the
only sport of the institutions, and
the tennis courts filled nearly every
This institution has no place for
loafers. Though only three hours of
physical culture is required each
week, very few men are content with
just filling the requirement. It is
not at all unlikely that the new ath
letic spirit will shame the man who
fails to get into his athletic uniform
almost every day.
This new requirement and the
spirit that it is creating, together
with the increased athletic fee, are
certain to have their effects upon the
Guilford Varsity teams after a few
Seventy-three colleges and univer

DO YOU RECOGNIZE YOURSELF
AS OTHERS SEE YOU?
Among College students there are
individuals of all types and charac>
ters. The primary purpose in th&
minds of some is achievement in ath
letics; others consider chiefly activ
ities, while some who are not ready
to face the problems cf life, go to
college to while away their time and
receive a degree through the mini
mum amount of study.
In addition to the above mention
ed classes there is another group of
individuals which is, while consider
ably in the minority in number, a
very interesting and important group
of students. These persons come to
college with but one thing in view ana
that is to devote their entire time
to hard and concentrated study. They
perform the task assigned to them
in a most satisfactory manner but
deny themselves some of the pleas
ures and opportunities offered by va
rious outside activities.
Such students, who are sometimes
called grinds, are, it must be admit
ted, unjust in some degree both to
themselves and to the institution
which they attend. Often their
training, while almost perfect so far
as book learning is concerned, fails to
give them the right ideas of college
life and college activities. They
leave school without having formed
many special friendships, and with
out having studied and observed hu
man nature to the extent that they
might have otherwise. However we
are apt to over-emphasize the v ad
and undesirable characteristics of
the so called grind without appreci
iting and understanding his good
points. He devotes his time to that
phase of college life upon which is
based the existence and ♦ the value
of all educational institutions. His
labors are directed towai'd the things
which tend to make his education a
success, things which teach him to
concentrate his mind and give him a
knowledge of required subjects far
surpassing that of those who do just
a sufficient amount of work to pass
Doubtless it is the studious per-""
son who sets the standard for other
students. Those who have worked take
pride in the things which they have
accomplished through hard and inter
sive study. On the other hand, those
who have devoted a considerable
amount of time to pleasures and
amusements, and as a result have
received low grades look back with
more or less dissatisfaction and free
ly admit that college is a place for
hard study rather than a place for
social activities and amusements.

Friday afternoon the college was
honored by a visit from Dr. R. L.
Robinson and a party of members of
the Board of Trustees from The Wo

in the form of an inspection trip.
Dr. Robinson and his Board of Tru?

their college. They were interested
in the splendid buildings on the cam
pus, especially Cox Hall. The organ

very favorably impressed them.
