OVER FRESHEN IN
The annual freshman-sophomore
debate, which was held in Memorial
Hall, Wednesday, May 3, terminated
in a victory for the sophomores. The
question debated was, Resolved, that
the United States should enter the
League of Nations. Sallie Wilkins,
Russel Branson and Nerius English
representing the freshman class de
bated on the negative side of the
question, while Marie Bsaman, Wil
liam Blair and Marion Shore repre
sented the sophomores on the affirm
ative. The annual freshman-sopho
moi-e debate causes much enthusiasm
among the two classes and both teams
went into the debate with a deter
mination to win. As a result both
teams put up good argument and
much "pep" and class spirit was
The affirmative presented the plan I
of the League of Nations and argued !
that it was necessary for the United j
States to enter the League from three
standpoints. First, from a social, I
second from a moral and third from
a political standpoint. They showed
thait the League of Nations has been
a success in ai-bitrating international
disputes, and with the United States
in it, it would be strengthened. The J
League of Nations is in harmony
with American ideals, and does not
destroy national sovereignty. Amer- J
ica is no longer an isolated nation ,
and it is necessary for her to help
maintain international peace by join
ing the League of Nations.
The negative argued that the |
League of Nations would involve
European wars, that we would be
drawn in foreign wars, which would
not interest the United States. The
failure and the weak points of the
League were brought out distinctly. ;
They al?o argued that the people of
the United States as a whole did not
desire the League of Nations. They j
contended that it wou'd destroy the
Monroe Doctrine. The world is not
in a position for internaMonil sUi- ;
snce. People of the United Sta'es do ,
not want a leap-ue that would entan
gle them in all'ances with foreign
nations opposed to the spirit of na
tionality, justice and freedom.
In the rebuttal both teams came
back strong, but the sophomores were
more successful in knocking down
the argument of their opponents and
therefore won the decision of the
judges The judges were Professor
L. L. Whit.?, Dr. L. L. Hobbs and Mr.
Frank S. Blair.
FERRELL WINS DECISION IN
IN BOXING EVENT

of U. N. C , in the fifth bout of the
boxing events at the North Carolina
Olympics, May 5. The fight was a
hotly contested four round bout and
WES given to Ferrell on points.

First round—Following a lively
exchange, Ferrell drew blood from
Smith's none. It was Ferrell's round.
Second round —Both boys landed
freely, Ferrell being the more effect
ive, smashing several hard blows to
the head, but they lacked the punch
to secure a knockout. Smith forced
the fighting and landed hard wallops
just before the bell. The round
Third round—The third round was
the fastest of the three. Smith as
sumed the aggressive, initiating a
series of rushes which forced Rer
rell to the ropes. It was Smith's
round. As there had not been enough
difference in the lads to warrant a
decision, a fourth round was ordered
by the judges.
Fourth round—Following an ex
change of blows without serious dam
age, the judges gave the decision
to Ferrell on points.

The Annual Freshman Declamation

2. The One-legged Goose—Bertha
3. The Forger—Jennie Howard
4. Archie Dean—Kate Watson
5. The Charict Race—Margaret
"The Chariot Race," a very difficult
piece, was given with fine spirit
and understanding by Miss Levering.
Selected from "Ben Hur," the decla
mation was one well-adapted for win
ning first place when the speaker
does the author justice.
"The One-Legged Goose," in negro
dialect, deserves honorable mention
since Miss Zachary elocuted both
the difficult part of the negro and
, his imitation of the whites very
Miss Cannon's declamation, "The
Forger," was quite well done, tho
the abrupt ending left the audience
still "up in the air."
"Archie Dean," by Miss Watson,
was perhaps the most perfectly given
of the five, but the selection was
ra'her unfortunate for such a con
"The Highwayman," a very roman
tic piece, tho somewhat lacking in
universal appeal, was presented in
nice style by Miss White.
Music for the evening was provid
ed by Mi c s Katie Lambeth who played
"Wocd'and Rivulet" during the sec
ond ?nd Third speeches and by Mr.
John Reynolds who sang while the
iud(T"s were consulting.
The judges, were Mrs. Mai*y E.
White, Dr. L. L. Hobbs, and Profess
or L. L. White. Professor White

Tatum and Joyce were defeated by
Powell and Marr, Trinities star
racketers 6-3, 7-5. Trinity opened

the second set the Quakers tightened
and at one time had the Meethodist
by a fine four margin. But Trinity
finally nosed out a seven to five
In the next round of doubles Mer
riman and Brown outclassed Elon in
a 6-1 round. The Quaker lads pre
vented their opponents from reg
istering a single game in the first
set until five straight games had been
tallied to Guilord. Errors on the
part of the E'on men and hard fast
drives by Guilford figured largely
in the result. The second set was
the same story so far as the games
went. Elon played better tennis,
however, and the games were close.
They were unable to return the ball
accurately while Guilford played fast

JUNIORS ENJOY ANNUAL PICNIC
The Junior class went on its annuil
picnic last Tuesday afternoon to a
beautiful picnic ground situated about
one mile from the college on Mrs
Mary E. White's land.
Promptly at half past fcur o'clock
with Miss Louise as chaperone the
"jolly juniors" started from New Gar
den with a generous supply of good
things to eat and plenty of determi
nation to have a big time. The
picnic gi-ound was finally reached
after the party had started on the
wrong way several times and had
almost lost themselves in the woods.
The clearing in the woods, near a
spring, wa r especially suitable. The
fires were soon built and the kettle
boiling for coffee. Weinie sticks
were gathered by the parties scatter
ed here and there in the woods.
When the evening shadows were fall
ing all gathered around the camp
fire for a generous helping of sand
wiches, eggs, pickles, hot dogs, bis
cuits and bananas. Just at the right
moment the errand boy from Can
non's store arrived with a bucketful
of chocolate ice cream and the cones.
Never was ice cream enjoyed more
than this as .it dripped from the bot
toms of the cones.
When supper was over merry
songs around the eampfires, inters
persed with trips to the spring, filled
the evening. The trip home, byway
of the station road was a good end
ing to one of the most enjoyable
events of the year.
-Immense damage that will run up
into the millions has lately been done
by floods in the Mississipi Valley.
There have been many breaks in the
levees, causing the inundation of
large tracts of lowlands. One break
30 miles south of New Orleans flood
ed more than 6,000 acres of sugar
cane plantations, the damage there
being upwards of $1,000,000. Hund

TO BE AWARDED ON NEW BASIS
The Bryn Mawr and Haverford Col
lege scholarships which have hitherto
been offered to the persons in the
senior class making the highest aver
age in scholarship during the junior
and senior year, and which are this
year being put on a new basis were
the subject of discussion at chapel,
Tuesday morning, May 2.
Miss Louisa Osborne told some
thing of the h'story of the Bryn
Mawr scholarship winners as it has
happened since the scholarship was
established about 30 years ago. Miss
Virginia Ragsdale of Jamestown was
the first girl to win it and she made
a very fine record there. Guilford
continued to be represented each year
for the next 18 years, but for the
past twelve there have been five
girls who were unable to stay or were
unable to go for various reasons. A
number of these did not remain be
cause they were physically unable
to do the strenuous work l-equired.
Miss Kate Smith of the class of
1919, who was the Guilford repre
sentative at Bryn Mawr an 1919-20,
told something of the intellectual at
mosphere and of the most important
events of the year.
Dr. Binford concluded by stating
the terms on which it will be award
ed. Any girls who desire the scol
arship must apply for it and must
have a real desire to continue her
education. It will not be awarded
only to members of the senior classes
but any girl in a previous class who
desires it may consider that she has
the right to apply. Dr. Binford
concluded by stating that the same
principles would be applied in select
ing the boy who would receive the
Haverford scholarship each year.
This decision will make it possible
for a number of Guilford alumni
who could not win the scholarship
by making the highest grades in
their classes, or could not go on
to school immediately after gradua
tion, to continue their studies.
The attention of all alumni is call
ed to the following commencement
