QUAKERS LOSE FIRST
GAME 10 MEDOISJS
Guilford Fails To Score
Against Trinity's Team
In the first football game of the
season, the Quakers went down in
defeat to the tune of 43 to 0 at the
hands of the battling Methodists on
Hanes Field, Saturday, Sept. 30.
The game was a losing one for
Guilford from the beginning. The
heavier Trinity team plowed through
her line repeatedly for gains, which
her offensive was too weak to off-
Trinity's team, heavier by ten
pounds to the man than the Quak
ers, played a steady and consistent
game, although only twice did they
make gains of as much as 25 yards
at a time. Fritz Smith at quarter
handled his team in splendid style.
The best ground gainers for Trin
ity were Boswell, Brown, Johnson
and Neal. On the defensive, Neal,
Hatcher, Simpson and Carter were
the outstanding men.
For Guilford, Warrick, Johnson.
Nicholson and Frazier played the
most consistent game.

The campus Sunday School, or
ganized last year by the two Chris
tian Associations, has been revived
and held its first meeting on Sun
day, October 1.
Plans for the work of the organ
ization have been worked out by the
two chairmen of the associations,
Miss Ruth Pearson and Benbow Mer-
riman, whereby the students will all
convene in Memorial Hall every Sun
day morning at 9:30. Here a short
program, prepared by a joint com
mittee, and usually consisting of a
brief talk and music, will be given.
\fter this the group separates into
classes. Four classes have been or
ganized among the girls, a junior
senior class taught by Miss Noles;
a sophomore group under Miss Os
borne; and two freshmen classes un
der Miss Ricks and Miss Polk. The
boys are divided into two sections,
the freshmen and preparatory boys
will be taught by Professor Ans

charge of the sophomores, juniors
All classes will use the uniform

MEN'S GLEE CLUB
BEGINS FALL WORK
The college glee club met Friday,
September 15, with thirteen of
its original members present. Ofli
cers were el," ted as follows: Presi
dent, R. k. Fallow; secretary and
treasurer, J. 0. Reynolds; bus. mgr.
R. G. Lassiter; assistant/ business
manager, J. F. Casey; chairman mu
sic committee, F. L. Crutchlield;
faculty advisor, Joseph D. White; di
rector, Miss Beatrice Lynn Byrd.
There are several talented men in
the freshman class, and from these
the club expects to fill the place of
the men who have dropped out. The
glee club will consist of a chorus of
sixteen voices, out of which will be
selected two quartets; and a small or
chestra. Unless new talent can be de
veloped. the orchestra will consist of
only four pieces, violin, cornet,
trombone and piano, three of last
year's players having dropped out.
After conferring with Dr. Binford.
the club has fixed Febuary and early
march for the concert tour. The niu-
sic committee is now at work select

the country a program of real merit
The club is fortunate ill naving as
faculty advisor. Prof. Joseph D
White. Mr. White has had much ex
perience in quartet and chorus work,
and is obviously the man to help
out in this work. Vi ith his co-oper
ation, the glee club is looking for
ward to a successful year.
Tennis With Greensboro
"Y" Scheduled for Oct.
To tell just what the tennis team
will amount to is impossible at such
an early date. However, as it now
appears, the varsity tennis team will
be far superior to any that has gone
out for several years past.
Just who this team will be com
posed of is at present doubtful.
Among the old men, Merriman and
Joyce seem certain to fill their last
year's berths. This will leave two
vacancies, for which there are some
ten candidates. Among the most |
promising are: Shore, Harris, Been I
Reynolds and Holder.
During the first week of October.,
a tournament between the Greensboro !
Y. M. C. A. and Guilford will be held j
on the Guilford courts. Mr. Leifer. j
a Trinity star of last year, will be i
on the courts for several individual j
matches with Guilford men. These j
hard matches will fit the men for the
elimination tournament scheduled to
commence the second week in Octo-!
GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., OCTOBER 4, 1922
10 EXCEED LAST YEAR
Guilford County Sends
Most; Four States Rep
Again the enrollment of Guilford
College has reached its usual num
ber of 22! J. This has been the gen
eral average for the past four years.
Last year the number was 229. while
in the vea 1919 it was 227.
Although the actual number of
students is the same, tiie number of
college students breaks all records
of the past, having jumped from the
last year's record-breaking number
of 171 to 1 87, thus decreasing the
number of preparatory students from
u2 to 58; a decrease of 27 prepara
tory students since last year and an
increase of college enrollment of 10.
This would seem to indicate that the
ultimate desire of the trustees of
Guilford College ,to eliminate the
preparatory department in favor of
a more specialized curriculum, is
gradually being realized.
It is also interesting to note that
Guilford county still holds the lead
in the greatest number of students
in college, the number this year be
ing c! 0. Randolph county holds sec
ond place, with an enrollment of 33.
Last year the Guilford county enroll
ment was 70 and the enrollment of
Randolph county, 23. Each county
shows an increase of 10 students.
Alamance county follows next with
an enrollment of 13.
\ study of the statistics shows that
the number of counties represented
! • 31. The number of students from
outside the state is only seven this
year, but three states, Virginia,
Georgia and Florida, are represented.
A report of the religious registra
tion shows a dec rease in the numbers
of Friends registered, the 112 of
last year falling to an enrollment of
only 96 this fall, showing a major
ity over the Methodist of only 19.
The following is an abbreviated
statistical report of the denomina
Friends, 96; Methodist, 77; Baptist,
16: Presbyterians, 14; Moravians, 3;
Episcopalians, .'3; Christians, 1; Un
iversalis!, 1; non-members, 17.
The prospect of new students in
dicates that there will be at least 10
more registrations next week, bring
ing the total up to about 210, an
equal, if not larger enrollment, than
any previous year.
Juniors Elect Officers
The junior class met for the first
time this semester on Tuesday even
ing. Sept. 26. Although the loss of
several members makes '24 the small
est class on the hill, the same class
spirit that was born in the fall of
1920, was found to be still alive at
this meeting. The following offi
cers were elected and installed: pres
ident, Sam P. Harris; secretary, Hazel
E. Richardson; marshal, Ruth Rags
Guilford Trustees Go to
New York for College
Albert Cox, president of the Board
of Trustees, and Professor Dudley
Carroll, 'O7, also a trustee, have gone
to New York to present the cause of
Guilford College to some educational
boards of the city.
Y.W.C.A. GIVES PAGEANT
Forty-five students joined the Y.
W. C. A. as a result of a membership
campaign and an effective pageant,
presenting to the new girls' the va
rious phases of college life, which
was given on the campus last Wed
The pageant was enacted by a
group of old girls under the direct
ion of \ era Farlowe, chairman of
the membership committee of the .
W. C. A.
The pageant represented the visit
of a represenative of Guilford Col
lege to a home in the mountains of
North Carolina, in which there is the
mother, Mrs. Mitchell and six daush-
In an attempt to interest the
mother and daughters in college, the
various a tivities of the student body
are explained to them. During the
explanation, girls costumed to repre
sent the various organizations crossed
the stage in order to impress the
Mitchell family more vividly with
the girls' activities.
The final episde of the pageant
was the wedding, in which six high
school girl graduates were united in
the intellectual bonds of matrimony
to Guilford College. Preceding the
ceremony, the flower girl strewed the
path of the bridal party with Guil
fordians and college bulletins. The
pastor, Rev. Eva Holder, performed
the ceremony, requiring tiie six
brides to be ever faithful and loyal
to their college, and the groom to in
struct and direct them in intellectual

Miss V irginia I. Robinson, physi
cal director, gave a brief talk on phy
sical education. "Physical education
is the basis of all education," said
the speaker. "Although students
come to the college for intellectual
training, a strong intellect is worth
little without a strong body to sup

are not necessary," said Miss Rob

After the roll call and reading of
the constitution, the tennis manager,
Clementine Raiford, announced the
new regulations concerning tennis
this year. In order to give all a
chance to participate in the game,
no girl will be allowed to play over
three hours in one week. This, how
ever, will not affect many students,
since one may still do all of her re
quired exercise in that sport if she
so desires. Several of the courts are
already in condition, and plans are
being made for the establishment of
new ones. A new supply of rackets
and balls have been purchased.
Hazel Richardson was elected as
treasurer of the association.
WEDDING BELLS RING
ON GUILFORD CAMPUS
Who Kissed the Bride?
On Saturday night, Memorial Hall
was the scene of a most beautiful and
impressive womanless wedding, when
Mr. N. S. Hunter, of two hundred and
thirty-eight advoirdupois, became the
■ blushing bride of wilful feather
weight G. L. Morris.
The hall was gorgeously decorated
with at least two dozen sprays of gol
den rod and an immense lighted bell
over the altar added to the wedding
effect. Mr. Kimrey, gowned in black
. lace over silver, sang "I Love You
I Truly" and ''Just a-Wearyng for
. ou 'in a rich and sonorous voice.
, John Reynolds, clad in pink taffeta
and picture hat, sang "Believe Me,
. I All Those Endearing oung Charms"
in his most charming lyric soprano
voice. Mr. Thomas sang in a caress
. ing tearful contralto, "Love is What
| Makes the World Go Round."
To the strains of the wedding
march from Lohengrin, dainty flow
er girls entered from the vestibule,
strewing flowers in the path of the
bridal procession. Four bridesmaids
gowned in various shades of pink
crepe media and carrying golden rod
and evergreens nuide a varicolored
semicircle about the Rev. Mr. J. G.
Frazier, officiating clergyman. Mr.
Kimrey, as dame of honor and Prof.
Robert Dann, as maid of honor, en
tered from the left. Professor Dann
wore a charming gown of mimosa
crepe with touches of horrible blue
and picture hat to match. Mr. Wake
field, tiny and cunningly clad in vel
vet colonial suit, bore the ring in the
bowl of a huge lilv.
The bride, weighing only two-hun
dred and thirty eight, wore a beaut
iful dress of chesse satin trimmed
with pearls with an overskirt of im
ported window lace. The bridal veil
caught gently at the brow with
orange blossoms and edged with
crystal heads, made a regal picture
of splendor and volume. The bride's
boquet was in large design of canna
leaves and red peppers tied with
streamers of cheese cloth and some

solemnly sealed and every one who
so desired had kissed the bride, Mr.

ception was held at Founders Hail.
Admission to the nuptial ceremonv

Association, to be used for the ben

Faculty Changes Ruling
At the faculty meeting Friday even
ing, the average grade required for
graduation was placed at 75 per cent.
This is doubtless welcome news
to present and prospective students
at Guilford College, for the former
average grade required, 81 per cent,
