COLLEGE CAMPUS COMPLETELY
Every Student and Every Member
jO'f Faculty Take Part.
An event, unique in the life of
Guilford students now on the cam
pus, occurred Thursday afternoon,
March 3rd, when the entire student
body and Faculty set aside the reg
ular routine of work and with one
accord turned themselves into clean
ing brigades to rid the college green
of winter's accumulation of leaves
This undertaking of a x-ecently
forward organization of faculty and
students for the protection had its
beginning in a visit to the depart
ment of the State and in the admir
able execution of its first it has
demonstrated its worth, and ability
to the college community.
Under he direction of Professor
Pancoast, Ruth E. Outland, J. C.
Newlin and H. G. Mcßane groups
of from ten to twenty students
were assigned to different leaders
and each leader was given a division
of the campus or some building as
his part of the whole scene of work.
The entire campus was raked clean
of leaves, the shubbery cleaned and
pruned, several dead trees were re
moved and the buildings themselves
came in for a share of the general
After the task was completed a
picnic supper was served on the
lawn, followed by a short social.
Later in the evening Dr. Hobbs
spoke to a joint meeting of the Y.
W. C. A.
As an example of splendid coop
eration and whole hearted college
spirit the work of this day has few
equals and no superiors among the
students, —an assertion of a will to
do something for Guilford.

PLAN TO REDUCE COLLEGE
College Business Manager Proposes
to Manage Archdale.
Mr. Edgar Farlowe, business Man
ager of the college, is working on
the probable remodeling of Archdale
Hall. The plan proposed is to form
a Boy's Club and have it organized
and run on the same plan as New
Garden Hall is now operated. Such a
scheme will more than likely result
in more students for Guilford.
Since nineteen hundred and
eighteen no boy's boarding club has
been in operation. There has been
some demonstration in the past two
years for a boys club. The plan
which Mr. Farlowe is considering is
different from the plan of old boys'
club. It will require the boys who
room in Archdale to do nearly all
the work connected with dormitory
life. This will mean a saving of
something like one hundred dollars
per school year to each boy who
rooms in Archdale.
Many boys will wish to take ad
vantage of this opportunity to re
duce school expenses. The rooms
in Archdale though not as attractive
as those in Cox Hall, which is one
of the best equipped dormitories in
the Sou 1 " v e much move attractive
than those in many college dormito
ries in this State. The work which
each student will be required to do
would consume about one hour per
day. This means that each student
will save more than fifty cents pf •
day by doing only one hours work.
GIRLS ATHLETIC DIRECTOR
All those interested in the progress
of the athletic work among the girls
will be glad to know that Miss Mil
rVed Crabb the physical director has
sufficiently recovered from a case of
staphyloeocus infection to allow her
to again take up her work. Although
an attempt has" been made to keep
the work up, the need of one whose
entire time could be devoted to the
work was felt.
Miss Crabb has arrived in time to
get affairs well under way for the
final quarter of the school year. The
basket ball season is being termi
nated by a series of class and well
bought class games. Loyalty to
respective classes has brought girls
out on the floor when all other
The sunshine and wind have
brought tennis courts into fine shape
and under direction of the tennis
manager the courts are kept occu
pied. Preparation for the spring
tournament is being made.
Baseball will have its rightful
place in the spring activities and a
series of interesting games is antic
There have been many draw-backs
this year but the co-operation of the
g'rls hao kept the yeur from being
a failure and and cause J the stand
ards of the Y. W. C. A to be raised.
With the hope of such co-operation
in the future, the physical element
of Guilford girls will not fall short
of a high mark.

MARY MILES MINTER IN
On Saturday evening March 12th
quite a large audience was present
to witness the movie, "Mary Miles

JIM NEWLIN ELECTED CAPTAIN

imously elected captain of the 1921

DOCTOR L. L. HOBBS ADDRESSES
Co-operation the Theme of His Talk.
At six forty-five, after all the
working students had been given time
to refresh themselves, the entire
student body assembled at Memorial
Hall. Here, to this joint meeting of
the two Christian Associations, Doc
tor L. L. Hobbs made his first pub
lic address since his recovery from
his long illness. Pi'actically every
student and member of the faculty
were there to hear him.
Doctor Hobbs began his talk by
renewing the day's work on the cam
pus. The theme of his talk, closely
fitting in with what the students had
just accomplished, was "Co-opera
"By the cooperative efforts of men
and women, all things that are to
be done and need doing, can be
done." There is no need to wait and
pray for some one to do the wortc.
We want to dignify the importance
of the activities of men and women.
What good would it do to say go
and be clothed, of fed, and put forth
no effort? We can't stress enough
the importance of the cooperative
activities of men and women."
The speaker then explained that
pleasure is found in doing even the
meaner tasks. But the pleasure can
only come in performing the work
There was an expression of deep
regret at the passing of the olcl
trees from the campus. The changes
in the campus correspond to the
changes in the student body. The
old poplar that was pelted by base
balls forty years ago was one of the
trees disposed of. One bit of infor
mation that most of the students
received for the first time, was that
the campus at one time was dotted
with chestnut trees.
"Great deeds are most easily
achieved in that age when great
deeds are held in highest esteem."
We are influenced by the very at
mosphere that surrounds us. Edu
cation should be such that our in
most spiritual aspirations will be
growing better due to the co-opera
tion of other people. "It is impos
sible for a man to reach to any great
height by himself. We must all
rise together, or we will all stay
down here together."
Doctor Hobbs talk was not a long
one. It was, however, one which
appealed to every one present, as
was evidenced by the closest atten
tion that could be given a speaker.
