TENNIS TEAM LOSES—HARD FOUGHT MATCH WITH TRINITY On Saturday, May 20, Guilford lost a hard fought tennis match with the Trinity team. All the matches were close, especially the singles. But the final punch which always de cides a contest seemed to be lacking.

In the first single Merrimon lost to Tabor in straight sets 6-3, 6-4. Both sets, however, were hard fought. The other three singles were extreme ly close. Brown was defeated by Turrentine 6-4, 3-6, 6-1. Joyce lost to Marr 6-3,-26.16-2. Tatum lost to Summers 6-4, 4-6, 6-0.

White, coach at Trinity says that Guilford's tennis team has improved wonderfully in th past year, and is the best team that Giul ford has ever had. MR. PALMER LEADS CHAPEL On Monday morning, May, /15, Professor Palmer of the Chemistry Department gave an interesting talk at the chapel hour. His address con cerned the exhaustion of the world's supply of coal and oil, and the possi ble solution of the problem. The supply of hard coal will be exhausted by 1975. However there is enough coal to last for fifty thousand years, and with a little change in the method of burning this coal can be substitut ed for the hard vatriety. The gasoline problem presents greater difficulties. The supply of. crude oil will be exhausted in twenty years. Without some substitute for this article the automobile will pass out of existence. Two possible solu tions present themselves. Since the United States has unlimited water power, it has been suggested that this be converted into into elcetrical en ergy, and that the automobile be run on storage batteries. This, however, would necessitate a complete change in the mechanism of the automobile. The other plan, and the orue that Mr. Palmer thinks more feasible is to use alcohol as a fuel. We think of alco hol as being expensive, but the ex pense in the government tax and not not in the manufacture. Ethyl alcohol can be made from corn at a moderate cost.. Mr. Palmer suggests that the U. S. Government control plants in the great corn-producing regions of the country. The alcohol would be denatured to render it unfit for pur posse other than as a fuel. —Only candidates who came out for light wines and beer will be sup ported by organized labor at the non partisan committee of the N. Y. State Federation of Labor in Albany. —When John T. Ready of Miami, Okla., filed a petition in bankruptcy he asked permission to retain pos session of the family Bible and a set of golf clubs.
