PROFESSOR ROGERS LECTURES
TO GUILFORD STUDENTS
Labor and International Politics
Professor Lindsay Rogers of Har
vard University delivered on Tues
day night the last lecture of the year
to be given under the auspices of
the International Relationship Club.
His subject was, "Labor and Interna
tional Relations'' Through his intro
duction it was seen that Labor
and International Politics are ve v y
The lecture dealt with three periods
of time; Labor before the war, Labor
during the war, and Labor after the
war. Before the war practically all
European organized labor belonged toi
international movements. Strikes
were threatened as a method for
preventing war and the organizations
believed that their programs made
war a great illusion. But when the
war broke out these movements were
lost sight of, and became absorbed
in militariism. All Labor parties and
Socialists defended and supported the
During the war the significant
part played by Labor in International
politics concerned things of the mind
rather than those connected with bod
ily and physical strength.
After the war the statesmen
thought that they should recognize in
some way the work of the laboring
classes during the war. They wanted
to set Labor standards, for they
realized that a contented Labor pop
ulation would result in peace. Qn
the other hand they realized that
only by international peace could the
labor parties be kept quiet.
Lloyd George understood this and
emphasized it in the Fall of 1918 as
the third point in his brief platform;
first, hang the Kaiser; second, make
Germany pay; third, make England
a fit place for her returned soldiers.
These obligations to her returned
soldiers are extremely costly and
England does not have the necessary
money. But England is not the only
country in this condition; France is
borrowing money to pay interest on
borrowed money. The nations must

GUILFORD DROPS A CLOSE
GAME TO NORTH CAROLINA
Shore Is Hit Hard In First, But Al
lows Only Four Safeties After
The Quaker team lost to Carolina
on Thursday in a fast game of base
ball, by the score of 4-2. Carolina
started off in high gear and before
the smoke had cleared she had
scored her only runs of thfa game. In
this inning McLean's single, F.
Morris' infield hit, Shirley's two bag
ger, Lowe's safe bunt and William's
clean drive followed each other in
rapid succession and enabled four
Carolina men to cross the home
plate. At this point on Herman
Shore, on the mound for Guilford
tightened up and during the rest of
the game he allowed but four hits,
several times the Tar Heels got on
base but always failed in the pinch
to hit. In the meantime Llewelyn
was letting the Quaker batters down
to the tune of 5 safe hits.
Guilford's first run came in the
second inning when "Babe" Shore
singled to center bringing in Jim
Newlin who had gotten on by error.
The other run came in the fifth when
Curtis Newlin beat out an infield
hit, went to third on an error and
scored on J. G. Frazier's sacrifice fly.

WILLIAM P. BLAIR DISCUSSES
THE NEED OF GOOD ROADS
A Prominent Speaker of Greensboro
William P. Blair of Cleveland, Ohio,
had charge of the chapel exercises on
Tuesday morning. Mr. Blair is a
civil engineer of the middle west and
spoke to the chapel audience on the
need of good roads. He cited many
instances in which great loss was
caused by inadequate means of trans
portation. The country can no longer
be dependent entirely on the railroads
to relieve critical transportation sit
uations. Good roads must aid in solv
ing such problems. Mr. Blair was
a speaker at the Good Roads conven
tion held in Greensboro.
GUILFORD "SCRUBS" DEFEAT
