THE GUILFORDIAN VOLUME VIII GUILFORD WINS FIRST SAME OF SEASON Defeats Mars H'll College 13-11 In High Point Guilford opened the base ball sea son with a practice game with Mars Hill at High Point, March 2'5, and won from the Juniors 13 to 11 in a game featured by many errors and much loose playing. Lack of practice occasioned by spring rains prevented the Quakers from being in good form and costly errors at crucial moments in the game were responsible for the num ber of runs which were slipped over the rubber. Only the heavy slugging of the entire team offset the loose field work and gave the Quak ers their final two run lead. Prac tically every man on the team con nected for at least one clean hit. Mars Hill was able to drive out her hits when they counted most. Catch er Roberts doubles both came when the bases were full, so that although Mars Hill had fewer hits than the Quakers she was.always in the run ning. "Babe" Shore opened the twirling game for Guilford, with Hayworth receiving in fine form. Captain "Babe" worked through seven frames, when he was relieved by Ferrell for the remaining two. Though not yet in real pitching form the big right hander gave a fair account of him self. At no time was he forced to work hard and his real strength was not on exhibition. Ferrell pitching his first game of college ball did all that could be expected of a youngster and held theh visitors well for the support he was given. The work of the infield was by no means up to par. In the first frame two wild throws to first and a fumble filled the bases and Roberts, the Mars Hill coach, con nected up for two bases. A single added another run and the inning ended 3 to 0. Guilford made her first run in the third added a couple more in the fifth and tied the score 7-7 in the sixth In the seventh Guilford sent four more across the plate. Mars Hill followed with two in the eighth Each team scored twice in the fina! frame, the game closing: with the Quakers two rurs in the lead Coach Doak tried out a number of new men during the game. Tate, v.ho began the game at first, was re lieved early in the game by Mr. H Shore. Winn played a good fielding game at second, while John Fraziei, at short and "Shorty" Frazier, at third, both played fair ball. Newlin who played in the left gar den was decidely off in his fielding game and allowed three or four easy chances to slip through his fingers, but he was especially strong with the willows. Smith, a new man in center field, while a bit nervous did did good fielding. Cummings in right field played a steady game. SENIORS AND JUNIORS VIC TORIOUS IN BASKET BALL During the past week three more games of the girls' basket ball tour nament have been played. On Tues day, March 21, the Seniors played ths Sophomores and won by a score of 40 to 4. In this game Ruth Out land pitched 11 goals and led in the scoring while Edna Raiford as a close second scored 9 goals. Line Up Seniors Sophomores Ruth Outland r.f.

In the game with the (Continued on page 4) CAMPUS CLEANED B'f FACULTY AND STODENiS Cleaning Day ' Observed for Second "Clean-up Day," the day for the annual dry-laundering of the campus, arrived last Thursday. The event was presaged by ominous warnings from faculty and upper classmen. Wednesday morning the entire stu dent body was divided into commit tees to work on different areas of the campus. Mr. Pancoast made an eloquent chapel talk on this occasion, calling for volunteers to get brush brooms in the afternoon. The appeal was moving indeed, but few people moved, therefore the Thursday morn ing Trig Classes were drafted into service. By this means, a sufficient number of brooms was obtained. The community was canvassed for rakes, and teams for hauling leaves were provided by the College farm. At 1:30 the students hastened to their respective places in order to secure rakes instead of brooms. Leaves were raked or swept into piles, and some were burned while others were packed into bags which were taken away by the teams. En vious workers viewed the drivers of these teams with a vague sense of unrest and fatigue. Whenever a rake fell from wearied hands, eager ones grabbed it up, that is, for the first hour. After that, the zeal was less obtrusive. Inch by inch the cam pus was relieved of sticks, leaves, and other debris accumulated since last "clean-up day." Saws in the hands of Professor Pancoast and Baker and a number of the students deprived numerous- trees of more or less inartistic looking banches, noticeable the two "chin ning" branches on the walk from Founder's to Mem. A great blow has been dealt the physical development of the girls by this vandalism. After two and one half hours of strenuous labor the workers adjurne ' to their respective dormitories to pre pare for supper. Shovels were called into use to get off the top hyers o dirt. The lily-whi'e hands of a few students were arrayed with artistic ally arranged blisters. When the majority of the student body had achieved a presentable ap pearance, a bount'ful spper of sand wiches, cake, eggs, pickles, apples, coffee, and cocoa was served on the campus in front of Founders. At seven o'clock there was a joint meeting of the Y. W. and Y. M. C A's, at which Dr. Perisho made an interesting and appropriate address GUILFORI) REPRESENTED AT HOME ECONOMICS CONVENTION Miss Noles attended the meeting of the Home Economics Convention which was held in Greensboro, Friday and Saturday, March 24 and 25. More than one hundred Home Economics teachers from all parts of North Car olina attended this convention. The sessions of' this Convention were very interesting and helpful. Many good speakers were present, chief of whom was Mr. Benjamin Andrews from Teacher's College, Car olina University. One of the most interesting sessions was on Friday morning when reports were given from teachers of various colleges on the subject, "The Best Thing I Have Done This Year." Miss Noles report ed from Guilford College concerning the work of her Seniors who are co operating with the County Board of Health in the modern health crusada for school children. She also spoke of the health campaign that is be ing planned for the students of the Home Economics Department. Attending this convention were two members of the first class that graduated from Guilford in Horn® Economics, Mary Coble, who is teaching at Roanoke Rapids, and Madge Coble, who is teaching at Gastonia. GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C.

This recital was one of a series which have betn given by this depart ment of which Miss Byrd is head. A large and enthusiastic audience was present.

'ebate was held in Memorial Hall, Friday, March 24, The question v/as: "Resolved. That the Treaty- Making Power of the United States should be transferred to the Execu tive Department of government, con stitutionally waived." The speakers for Guilford were L. Lyndon Wil -I'ams and J. Curtis Newlin; for Elon, Wm Tate Scott and Ralph Otis Smith. Mr. Williams had a good argument and presented it in a forceful manner. He showed that a change in the method of exercising the treaty rnak ng power is essential to the main tenance of an effective foreign policy. "The present system has caused al most continuous friction between the executive and senate which has re sulted in direct injury to this nation and has created unprofitable rela tions between the U. S. and certain foreign powers," said the speaker, and "the political interests, selfish ambition and minority rule which govern the senate are not conducive to the proper execution of the treaty making power". Mr. Newlin showed that the treaty making power will be exercised more efficiently by the executive depart ment for we eliminate friction and secure unity of purpose by central izing the authority in an organ of government that functions as a unit. Mr. Scott and Mr. Smith of Elon contended that the policy was con trary to democracy, and showed the good that the treaty-making power has accomplished in the United States in the past. They also maintained (Continued on 3) DR. PERISHO CONTINUES PUBLIC SCHOOL WORK Spends Last Week With Schools in Guilford County. Dr. Perisho is continuing his work with vigor and enthusiasm, delivering often as many as four or five public addresses each day in the week. While Dr. Perisho's work is chiefly among the high schools and graded schools, yet he often speaks at relig ious gatherings and other public meetings in both city and rural com munities, always discussing in his usual manner the vital topics of the day. He continues to carry to the schools the message of education. His favorite text is "Does it pay fco get an education?" In discussing this, he bases much of his talk upon the fact that if the United States Army could not fight effectively and remain ignorant. The gi-eat mass of people can never hope to meet the problems of peace unless they are educated. Dr. Perisho spent the past week in Guilford County, with the excep tion of Sunday, March 19, when he spoke to the congregation at Science Hll Friends Church, and Monday, March 20, when he delivered two addresses at the Farmer high school in Randolph County. He spoke to the Guilford high school on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and spent considerable time with the debaters of that institution. We-dnesday he visited the Greensboro high school and spoke to the faculty and the eight hundred students there. On Friday the state W. C. T. U. con ference heard his splendid talk on the benefits derived from prohibition and his praise for the work which the organization had done in promot ing Child Welfare Work. On Satur day he delivered the commencement address at the Oak Ridge graded school. Previous to the past week and sinre liis trip to eastern North Carolina, Dr. Perisho has be3n visiting thr schools in Moore, Randolph, Ala mance Chatham and Guilford coun ties. Every high school in Guilford county, with two or three exceptions, has been visited by him. In Moore county he visited every high school and also a number of graded schools. While there he addressed a public meeting in the community, held at Pinehurst, the famous winter resort. Up to the present time Dr. Per isho's work has been done under the auspices of Guilford College. The greater part of his work in the future with the exception of com mencement addresses will be done at the request of the confei-ence of college presidents. His plans are to visit the schools of Forsyth, Mont gomery, Rockingham and possibly Stokes. He has also arranged to deliver a dozen or more commence ment addresses. In all of his travels among the schools, Dr, Perisho reports a splen did reception, and finds many alumni, old students and friends of Guilford, who from reports given to him by county superintendents are making records in the teaching profession which rates them with the very best teachers to be found in the state. JUNIORS ENTERTAIN SENIORS Elon College Upper Classmen en joyed one of the most delightful oc casions of the social season here last Saturday evening when the Sen ior Class was entertained by the Juniors at the Annual Junioi-Senior Reception. During the early part of the evening, games, contests and other forms of amusement were pro vided. Later the merry makers as sembled around a large, beautifully decorated table where refreshments were served and amusements were furnished in the form of toasts, jokes, reading and witty after din ner talks. FAUST, THE BEAUTIFUL, IS HEARD AT GUILFORD J. Westley White, As Memphisto pheles, Sang with Authority and a Fine Tone. "Faust" the perennially beautiful, an opera, by Charles Gounod, was given March 2, in Memorial hall by the Guilford Choral society under the able direction of James Westley White. The opera, a veritable mine of melody and harmony, and one dear to the hearts of all, was given a well prepared and oftimes moving per formance. Mr. White evidently in sympathy with the work and with his forces, bringing them through a dif ficult undertaking with great ci'edit to all those taking part. The chorus of 60 voices has been in training all winter and the quality of their work showed vast improvement over that of recent years; a splendid tone quality was particularly noted, precision of attack, and appreciation for accent and finish. The work of the choral society has become an es tablished part of the life of the col lege, and it has some fine achieve ments to its credit, and last night's offering promises splendid things for the* future. Aside from directing, Mr. White also appeared in the role of Memphis topheles, and sang with authority, and fine tone and appreciation for the part. Gumey Briggs, of High Point, | sang the leading role, or name part and added new laurels to his fine rec ord by the beauty of his singing and the spirit with which he entered into the part. Miss Beatrice Byrd, as Margarita, was in fine voice, and the music of this part seemed especially | suited for her flexible and pleasing | style. Especially effective was the "Jewel Song," which she sang in splendid fashion. Perhaps the sensation of the even ing WES the singing of Miss Clara Henley, in the role of Siebel. Miss Henley is a graduate pupil of the vocal department at Guilford this year, and for sometime has delighted the public there with her singing; but last night's singing showed even greater improvement. Miss Henley has all of the qualifications of a successful singer; a splendid rich voice, poise and sympathetic under standing and her future will be watched with interest. Miss Henley also sang the part of Martha. William Hallis Hatfield sang the part of Valentine with fine effect, a dramatic part, and handled it with taste and skill and was in good voice. Joe Reece Mor:on in the short but difficult role of Wagner, handled his lines well and sang with good tone. Miss Nellie Clapp, as accompanist, again demonstrated her ability to handle a big score in a masterly way and gave good solid support for the ensemble numbers, as well as sup plying sympathetic support for the soloists. Miss Anne Roberts, of the faculty at Guilford, acted as interpreter of the spoken recitatives very skillfully, Altogether it was a fine achiev ment for the society and a notewor thy step, musically, for the commu nity. FRENCH CLUB MEETS The French Club was delightfully entertained by Misses Blanche Lind ley and Ruth Pearson, Wednesday, March 22, from 4:00 to 5:30 P. M. Interesting games, among them "Cha teaubriand", were provided to keep the guests busy. The conversation, entirely in French, was kept up with a lively interest. Delicious hot chocolate and cakes were served for refreshments. The guests present were Miss Roberts, Misses Lois Rabey, Helen Bostick, Esther White, Ruth Reynolds, Clara Henley and Mabel Ward.
