The Guilford team showed good

The Burlington playing was mark
ed by good team work and the game
was much closer than the first. The
forwards for Burlington were weak,
however and did not obtain a score,
while Pomona's earlier psp did not
wear out. The star player for Po

guard, who was , especially good at
jumping for and passing the ball,

places, and won three third places.
Greensboro, as runner up finished

Unique Program Feature of the
The Henry Clays were delightfully
entertained by the Zatasian Literary
Society at its regular meeting held in
Memorial Hall, March 31.
Immediately after the Clays had
entered the Hall, President Florence
Cox adjourned the Society without
having received a motion to that ef
fect. A motion for adjournment
was then seconded after which the
motion was made.
The critic for the evening, Jose
phine Mock, gave a splendid report
in which she reviewed the program,
pointing out the gramatical errors
and showing how, in some instances,
the diction of the speekers might
have been better.
The Clays were then given a chance
to address the Society. Four mem
bers took this opportunity to express
their gratitude for the privalege of
attending a regular meeting of the
Zatasians and also to congratulate
them for having given such an excel

The achievements of the "Boat

interestingly reviewed by Miss John

detail Florence and Rome.
Miss White, as America, and Miss
Ward, as Japan, discussed at length
the conditions that exist in Korea.
During the interview each country
was brought to see her own duty and
responsibility to Korea.
The "Spanish Spandan-go" was
well given on the guitar.
The "Irelanders Abroad" having
acquired a Guilfordian, found many
things of interest and several jokes
on those present.

From Lenoir, But Loses to
Wake Forest and Baltimore
Guilford Shows Up Well
THE LENOIR GAME
Playing the air tight ball, behind
the steady work of Terrell on the
mound, Guilford blanked Lenoir,
April 1, in the first home game of the
season, making four colunts off the
visitors, three coming in the eighth
inning when Jones, who was twirl
ing for Lenior, was touched for four
singles, one of which counted for a
For the first three innings neither
side threatened to score: Jones on
the mound for the visitors, pitched a
brand of ball which held the Quak
ers at his mercy until the fourth
inning when Newlin opened with a
single to left field, was sacrificed'
to third, and scored on a wild
pitch. Cummings smashed out a
hit for two sacks but Jones tightened
and the Quakers were retired be
fore he was able to check over the
The visitors presented further
scoring until the eighth frame when
the Quakers hopped on Jone's twist
ers in a slugging fest which sent the
agate to all cornel's of the lot, and
counted four markers across the
rubber. Shorty Frazier opened with
a single and went to third on a
stolen base and a sacrifice. Newlin
paced out a single and Shorty scored.
Hayworth picked out one to his
liking and slapped the ball to deep
field for two bases. Newlin was held
on third. Cummings followed with
his second hit, good for one sack,
which scored both Newlin and Hay
worth for the final tallies of the
Ferrell, the youngster who did
the box work for the Quakers, al
lowed only four scattered hits. He
worked in fine form throughout
the entire game. Although the
visitors twice advanced as far as
the third station, Ferrell's twisters
together with the steady backing of
the team prevented Lenoir from
checking over a single tally.
Hayworth receiving for the Quak
ers worked in mid season form and
caught a whale of a game.

THE BALTIMORE GAME
In a free for all slug fest the Bal
timore Orioles hammered the Quak
ers for a 15 to 1 count in Winston-
Salem, March 29th. Shore, Mcßane
and Ferrell were all sent to the
mound for the collegians and were
unable to check the professionals who
slapped the agate for 18 clean bin
The first inning proved most dis
astrous for the Quakers. The first
three men up for Guilford were
retired in order. When the Birds
in First Game of Season
came to the bat, Fritz Maisee, Bal
timore's star third sacker, drew a
walk and Lawry opened what proved
to be a perfect avalanche of bin
gles, which all but swept Shore,
the Quaker moundsman, from the
hillock, and resulted in nine runs,
seven hits, a base on balls, and three
errors before the painful session was
After this inning Shore journeyed
along fairly easily, the Orioles
getting only one more run before he
was relieved in the fourth frame,
E. Mcßane, who relieved Shore, al
lowed one run, and Ferreli, who re
lieved him in the seventh, was
touched for three more.
The collegians were held to six
hits, four of which came in the
fourth frame and resulted in the
single tally registered by the Quak
ers. Newlin got a safe bingle to
left field good for the first station.
Hayworth followed with a clean
smash to center field advancing New
lin to second base. Smith hit for
a single and Cummings scored New
lin on a hot one over short.
Hayworth was clearly the best
man in the game for Guilford. He
slapped out two hits and drew a
walk uut of four trips to the plate,
and played a cracking good game
behind the bat.

THE WAKE FOREST GAME
Wake Forest, rallying under the
handicap of a three run lead secured
by the Quakers in the first two
frames, turned the tide and defeated
Guilford 6 to 3 on Hobbs field,
April 4. Edwards, the smoky Baptist
moundsman who relieved Lefty Bur
den in the third inning, stopped the
Quakers' onslaught and pitched his
team to victory.
Burden who began the box work
for the visitors proved an easy
mark. The Guilford batsmen lit on
his benders and smashed the ball in
merciless mashion until he was re
lieved in the third inning, the left
hander lucky to escape with only
three runs on his delivery.
Edwards who relieved Burden had
entirely too much stuff for the
home lads. He held the Quakers
at his mercy throughout the rest of
flie game, causing eleven Guilford
