10 WAKE FORES!
Air Tight Guarding Feat
Guilford suffered a .'>l to 22 defeat
at the hands of Wake Forest when
their respective quints clashed on the
local floor, February 25.
Too much Baptist guarding prov
ed the downfall of the Quakers who
were seldom able to elude the ever
vigilant visitors blocking the way to
the basket. The game was slow at
the beginning and consisted largely
of fouls, but speeded up toward the
ftid of the first half and held the
pace during the remainder of the
time. Ending the first period on the
small side of the score the Quakers
came back strong a couple of times
in the second half and tied the score
mi both occasions. But this was the
heights of the local's ability, and
Wake Forest by means of her splen
did defense was able to keep the
Quakers at a safe distance and at the
same time slip through to the basket
for enough points to sew up the
The opening minutes of play were
featured by no scoring, much foul
ing, and still no scoring. The visit
ors took the first tally on a foul after
several attempts which failed and
followed it up with a field goal.
The game gathered speed as it went
along till at the end of the first half
both teams were going at a fair pa e.
The floor work was about evenly
divided so far as the passing game
goes although Guilford showed a
tendency to fumble the ball when
at its fingers' end under the basket,
but in defensive work the visitors
clearly surpassed anything which
Guilford had to olfer. Time and
again Guilford would dribble and
pass the ball almost to within strik
ing distance of the goal only to find
a darting figure of the Old Gold &
Black across the path. When th:'
whistle blew for halves, Wake Fores?
had tossed the greater number i t
the basket and nosed out a small lead
In the second half Guilford foujrli
desperately for the lead and proved
dangerous on two occasions when
-he evened the score and got within
-triking distance of victory. But the
second frame proved to be a repli a
of the first and again the Quakers
found themselves unable to lose the
guard long enough for a clear shot
while the visitors caged enough short
-hots to keep the ncessary margin.

GUILFORD COLLEGE. N. C.. MARCH 1, 1922
Subject of Chapel Talk
Washington the farmer was the
subject of a splendid chapel talk
given hv Dr. Perisho on the morning
of February 21. He said that people
have alwavs talked about Washing
ton the general. Washington the
statesman and Washington the fa
ther of his country, ignoring his
contributions to America in the field
Washington was the greatest far
mer who ever lived in the L nited
States said the speaker. He owned
55.000 acres of land which was di
vided into five farms. He had a
superintendent upon each farm, who
brought a written report to Presi
dent's office every week while Wash
ington was president. Washington
was the first man to keep books on
a farm. He was also the first far
mer to practice rotation of crops
As a breeder of line stock, ash
ington was also progressive. His
farms produced the finest horses and
sheep to be found in America at
that time. In connection with stock
raising, Dr. Perisho spoke also of
Henry Clay and Daniel Webster,
who are usually remembered for their
skill in oratory and statesmanship.
Henry Clay, said Dr. Perisho, was
a great Kentucky farmer, who raised
the finest cattle in the country, while
Webster on his Massachusettes farm
was the first man in America to breed
Dr. Perisho concluded his talk
with a plea that the agricultural ser
vices of great men shall not be pass
ed over and ignored as they have
been in the past, but that such con
tributions be given a place in propor
tion to their importance in the de
velopm?nt of a very important phase
of or.r economic life.
GREENSBORO WINS A
ROUGH GAME, 33 28
"Eliminaf es Burlington From
In a hard-fought, rough-and-tum
ble gnme in which two players were
removed for getting too rough,
Greensboro high school eliminated
Burliiigton high school from the state
basketball championship race here
Friday night. 33 to 20.
From start to finish the two teams
played a hangup game. Both were
in the fight for blood and they went
after each other like young tigers.
The keenness of the play aot the
belter of Daniel and Mcintosh, the
rival centers, who tossed each other
around in a general melee which
threatened at one time to involve
everv man on the court, including the
The battle occurred in the first few
minutes of the game. Goodwin, who
replaced Daniel at center, looked a
bit nervous at first, and the loss of
the regular center was felt to such
an extent that Burlington by splen
did playing led at the end of the first
half, 15 to 13.
In the second half, however. Good
win came back brilliantly, the entire
team rallied to its job, and by the
hardest kind of playing, wrested the
lead from Burlington and swept for
ward to one of the best earned vic
tories of the season. Goodwin was
a storm center in the second half at
tack and Captain Joe Britton with
six goals was the high scorer of the
game. Both guards played splendid
ly and the entire beam was on its
toes evert minute.
Garrett and Webster, the two Kkir
lingtan forwards, played a powerful
ga*ne. Garrett shot five goals from
the court and was always a danger
ous man and Webster's floor work
was a big factor.

DROPS TWO GAMES
Oak Ridge and Greensboro
Too Much for the Reserves
Guilford's second string men
dropped a couple of games to Oak'
Ridge and Greensboro High during
the past week, losinsr to the Institute!
21 to 36 and to the High School;
hoys 13 to 18.
The game with Oak Ridge was j
lost in the first half. Before Guil
ford could get into the running Oak
Ridge had piled up a large lead and
the half ended with the locals taking
the small end of a 20 to 6 score.
In the second half the Guilford
boys, having become more accus
tomed to the floor, staged a fierce
come back but were unable to pre
vent the clever forwards of the op
posing team from ringing enough to
hold the lead.
The two forwards did all the
shooting for the Institute, while Tate
and Payne led in scoring for Guil
ford with three a piece.
The game with Greensboro was
rough and rugged and featured by
main long shots which usually went j
wide of the basket.
The Greensboro lads showed a hit I
more team work than the locals and
their big center was able to keep a
monopoly on the tip off so that in 1
the end they succeeded in registering!
a few more goals than the Quakers.
Guilford showed spurts of action
when the floor work was good, hut
throughout the greater part of the
game they seemed unable to handle
the hall with any degree of regularity.
Havworth was without doubt the
best local man on the floor during
the time he was in the game, but i

SOUR GRAPES LECTURE
Dr. Ott Delights College
In his famous lecture on "Sour
Crapes" delivered here on Tuesday
evening, February 21. Dr. Edward
A. Ott scored one of the triumphs of
Guilford's lyeeum course for this
year. Dr. Ott is a speaker of wide
reputation who fully merits the trib
utes which are paid hi# charming
manner, magnetic personality and
delightful sense of humor.
His Sour Grapes lecture which is in
a large measure responsible for his
fame on the lyeeum stage, under its
scriptural title enters about the theme
of heredity and is realh a lerture
upon eugenics. Beginning with a
statement of the laws of heredity as
they manifest themselves in the vege
table world and among the lower an
imals, Dr. Ott proceeded to a discus
sion of the same laws as they apply
to people. His statements were rein
forced with reviews of the ancestors
of numerous famous people, chosen
from the ranks of the world's list
of geniuses in various lines.
He followed this survey with a
review of the notorious Jukes family,
which has supplied America with
12,000 criminals and cost her $260,-
000, thus proving that criminal tend
encies are transmissahle as well as
His closing plea was for clean
living among the vouni people cf
today, since, he said, no country can
lift itself morally or intellectually
it its physical plane is a low one.
Clean, sane living will make for
saner, happier marriages and a
saner, happier, more useful race of
people. Criminals and the feeble
minded will be taken care of but so
ciety will learn to protect itself from
the curse which comes from the con
tinued proagation of the unfit. This,
he said, is the debt which modern
I society, and particularly the college
bred man and woman, owes to the
millions of unborn children who will
some day people the world.
Dr. Oil spoke again at chapel on
the morning following his lecture,
taking as his theme, the field for so
cial service as it reveals itself in the
small town or county newspaper.
In no other career, according to Dr.
Ott, are there greater opportunities
for molding popular opinion and
lifting community ideals than are
offered through the pages of such
an organ. Such opportunities are
open to both men and women, and
unlike most forms of social services,
if efficiently managed, result in satis
factory financial returns as well as
in moral results
