GUILFORD BLANKS ELON
IN OPENING GAME
Herman Shore Holds Elonites At His
Guilford base ball team won the
first game of the season when it met
the Elon aggregation in the annual
Easter Monday game at Cone Park
and handed out the blank end of a
4-0 score. H. Shore, the Quaker
southpaw, was in good form and held
the Christians at his mercy through
out the game. He showed a lot of
"stuff" and made use of it at the right
time. Only once or twice did he get
into deep water and at those times he
managed to pull himself out with but
little trouble. He did get a slight sur
prise in the sixth when with two out
he sailed an easy one to Clark who
slammed it nearly to the right field
fence for a clean two bagger, but
Shore then tightened up and retired
the side by fanning Smith. Shore
fanned 11 men and allowed six hits,
two of which came in the ninth. Perry
for Elon struck out 4 men and allow
ed 11 hits.
Elon took first bat and started the
game by sending three men to the
plate to be retired in quick succes
sion. Then Guilford came to bat and
drew it's first blood. C. Newlin, lead
off man, opened with a single through
short and took second on G. Fra
zier's sacrifice. A. Newlin flew out to
left field and Curtis advanced to
third on H. Shore's single to left
field, coming home when Hayworth
sent a hot one down the third base
line. Cumming fanned.
Elon again repeated the perform
ance of three men up and three men
down in succession. Guilford man
aged to get two men on base on sin-
gles but failed to score.
Third inning: Newman, first up for
Elon flew out to center. Underwood
then doubled to left center. Perry
flew to center and Cummings muffed.
Johnson then fanned and Brown was
out. A. Newlin to first leaving Un
derwood stranded on third. Guilford
then proceeded to put up another
marker. A. Newlin singled sharply
to center. H. Shore reached first on
Johnson's error. Hay worth sacrificed,
Newlin going to third and Shore to
second. Cummings then hit to third
allowing Newlin to score on a wi'd
throw to home. The side was thtn re
tired, W. Frazier going out, third to
first and Winn, pitcher to first.
Fourth inning: Marlette flew out to
left. Clark then singled to center but
was again left stranded on base when
Smith fanned and Stoner drove one
to Jim Newlin who sent him out
at first. Guilford's half: C. Shore
fanned and C. Newlin was out on a
foul to catcher. J. G. Frazier then
sent one over first for a hit and stole
second. A. Newlin fanned, retiring
Fifth inning: Elon managed to get
a man on first and second but failed
to score. Guilford again scored when
H. Shore drove a scorching one
through second for his third hit, went
to second on Hayworth's sacrifice
and came home when Cummings hit
to third and the ball went wild to
Sixth inning: Brown out, pitcher

MISS MARJORIE WILLIAMS AT
HOME TO SENIORS
On Tuesday evening, March 22,
the class of '2l was entertained at
the hospitable home of Rev. and Mrs.
J. Edgar Williams in honor of their
daughter Marjorie, who is a member
of the class of '2l.
The evening was a very pleasant
one consisting of games and songs.
After arriving at the home, the guests
were given vs-nous shapes of slips
of paper on which was written parts
of songs. Upon matching the slips of
paper each couple was asked to sing
the words written thereon. This was
very amusing as some composed their
tunes as they proceeded.
A contest followed this which con
sisted of questions to be answered
by one word ending in age. The next
interesting feature of the evening wa3
a glimpse into the future of the class
of '2l, by Mrs. Williams. Each one
listened with the greatest of atten
tion to hear the magic bottle portray
Then Miss Hobbs sang some very
favorite songs which were enjoyed
Delightful refreshments were serv
ed. This enjoyable evening adds an
other happy memory to the class
to first and Marlette fanned. Then
Clark, who seemed to be the only one
who could do much with Shore's
breakers, met one good and sent it
out toward right field fence for a
double. His hope of scoring was
killed when Smith took three mighty
blows at the air and returned to his
seat. Guilford then marked up an
other tally. After two men were out,
J. Frazier walked and took second
when A. Newlin singled. H. Shore
then hit to short who then threw wild
first allowing Frazier to cross home
plate for the last score.
Seventh inning: Stoner fanned, and
Newman popped out to first. Under
wood reached first 011 Short's error
but got no further as Perry fouled
out to Hayworth. Guilford then sent
three men up to be retired in the
same quick order Shore had * sent
the Elonites down in the first two
In the eighth inning neither side
did more than allow three men each
to try in vain to reach first.
Ninth inning: Clark singled sharp
ly by third and Cheek, pinch hitting
for Stoner, followed with another
single. Clark going to second. New
man hit a grounder to A. Newlin, who
tossed to Winn, Winn relaying the
ball to Frazier at first, completing a
swift double and ending the game.
Clark was the star performer for
Elon, gathering three hits out of four
chances, one being a two bagger. He
also pulled some good work in the
outer garden, going back to the fence
to rob J. G. Frazier of an extra base
lick in the eighth.
While Elon did not score she put
up a hard fight and the game was
sufficiently interesting to hold all the
spectators till the last batter was out.
Summary: Elon; AB 36, R 0, H 6,
PO 24. A 16, E 3. Guilford; AB 33,
R 4, H 10, PO 27, A 22, E 3.

DR. KIMBALL OF SMITH
Mexican Relations in International
On Thursday evening at 8:30 o'-
clock, Dr. Kimball, professor of gov
ernment of Smith College, Massa
chusetts, addressed an audience
under the auspices of the Internation
al Relations Club.
In opening his address, Dr. Kim
ball made a few remarks concerning
the work of the clubs. Their object is
to get under-graduates to study topics
of international questions. They have
no doctrine, do no preaching and are
neither pacifists nor propagandists.
The address dealt with some of the
Mexican problems. The cry of Mex
ico is, "Understand Us."
Mexico, rich in mineral resources,
is tropically situated having a climate
conducive to health.
There is no real Mexican race. On
the one hand are the highly cultured
and on the other are those so low
down in civilization as to be called
savages. Strains of blood from many
countries make up the Mexican blood.
Beginning with the administration
of Diaz, Mr. Kimball discussed both
the internal problems and those aris
ing with other countries. He ably dis
cussed the cause of rebellions, the
formation of constitutions and laws
and the execution of them.
He gave many concrete examples
and interesting facts. His plea to the
studenl is, "With a level head, try to
