BV HIGK POINT
Outweighed man for man, but
fighting gamely to the last whistle
the scrubs lost to High Point by the
narrow margin of 6 of 0 last Sat
Another strong argument in favor
of the opposing team was the long
football experience of many of their
players. Chief among these was
Groome, the all star end for N. C.
State during the past three years.
During the first two quarters the
ball see-sawed up and down the field
with honors even. However, in the
first few minutes of the third quart
er, High Point took advantage of a
poor kick off, made by Guilford,
and scored their only marker. This
touchdown was the result of several
end runs, a couple of off-tackle
plays, and three line bucks. After
the ball crossed the goal line, High
Point chose to carry the ball over
The remainder of the game was
an even battle, during which neither
team's goal line was threatened.
The individual honors of the
game go to Groome of High Point
and Pringle of Guilford. Groome
was a death dealer to all end runs
that came his way. Pringle man
aged to get into almost every play
and nipped many well planned plays
in the bud.
Journalism Class Visits
The Greensboro Daily News re
cently acted as host to present and
former members of the class of jour
nalism, throwing wide its plant
from editorial room to mailing de
partment, as an object lesson in run
ning a city daily newspaper.
Amid the racket of the dozen or
so linotypes, the managing editor,
A. L. Stockton, took the Guilford
delegation in hand, and guided it
through the maze of hurrying men,
noisy machines and molten metal
pots in the composing room, care
fully explaning the function of each.
The news room was visited, where
reporters were turning raw news into
finished copy, the telegraph room,
the copy desk, the stereotvpeing
room and finally the press room,
where a huge machine with uncanny
ability was eating rolls of paper and
turning out printed, counted, folded
copies of the Daily News at the rate
of 3200 an hour.
Those enjoying the hospitality of
the News were: Miss M. Aline Polk:
Miss Mary Henlev; Miss Elizabeth
Brooks; R. K. Marshall; H. L. Ma
con; Dewey Crews; and J. W. Can
non. The visit is one of a series
of actual contacts, with the news
paper world planned for the class
m journalism this year. It was
made possible through the kindness
of Mr. Stockton, managing editor of
Olive Jinette, Vera and Wray Far
low spent Sunday in High Point.
Sallie Wilkins spent the week-end
m Greensboro as the guest of Mr.
and Mrs. J. E. Williams.

TENNIS MEN SET
DOWN TO HARD WORK
With a trip to Lenoir, a match
with Oak Ridge, and a visit from
the Trinity club staring them in the
face, Guilford's tennis team is mak
ing every day's practice count.
During last week the old varsity
men were pitted against each other
in both singles and doubles. This
gave the coach a chance to locate the
weak points and plan remedies. Just
who will represent Guilford in the
scheduled games will be definitely
known next week.
Starting Monday, a tournament
will be run off in which the best var
sity player will receive one dozen
tennis balls, the best scrub player
will receive one half dozen balls,
and the best new man will receive
one half dozen balls. The best bets
at present are Merriman for first var
sity, Reynolds for first place among
last year's scrubs and Barbee for
first place among the new men.
Historical Film Shown
In College Movies
The Saturday night's program at
Memorial Hall was a picture of the
first English settlement in America,
the colonization of Roanoke Island.
The scenes were not of the romantic
type —Rodolph Valentino was not
in the cast—nor were there any
western thrills. Still the picture had
a strong appeal to the interests of
at least one group of students, the
class in History 111, which is sub
ject to an exam Monday morning.
The quaint dress of Sir Walter
Raleigh aiid his company, and of the
native Indians, added much to the
artistic effect of the picture.
The complete history of the set
tlement 'was given, from the first
exploration by Amadas and Bar
lowe to the final desertion of the is
land by John White.
The film was made at Albemarle
under the direction of E. C. Crosby,
of Raleigh. Local talent was used
exclusively in the cast.

As a great many know, "Daddy-
Long-Legs" is a play taken from the
book by the same name by Jean
Webster, and made more famous by
the screen version starring Mary
Pickford. It was produced in New
York City several years ago with
Ruth Chatterton as "Judy." It
scored a phenomenal hit on account
of its brisk humor and touching
Y. W. Girls Picnic
Cludy skies and threatening rain
did not dampen the spirits of the
Y. W. C. A. girls Saturday afternoon
as they gathered in front of Found
ers' Hall ready for their annual pic-
Even though the usual trip to the
Battleground was put aside, and the
trip was a mere hike to Mrs. White's
"Thirteen Acre Piece," yet it was
greatly enjoyed by all. The crowd
arrived at the picnic grounds about
four o'clock, and soon it had dis
persed to the woods for firewood
and weiner sticks. A huge fire was
built and the coffee pot put on to
boil. When all had seated them
selves in a circle, a large variety of
sandwiches and pickles were served.
Soon after the hot dogs were being
roasted over the coals.
When everybody had finished.
Miss Louise gathered them around
the camp fire for a few familiar
songs, and then started them home
byway of the station road. At the
end of the trip the picnicers found
big dishes of ice cream waiting for
them at New Garden.
Ruth and Sarah Hodges spent the
week-end with Mary Mitchell at her
home in Reidsville.
AT CABINET TRAINING
COUNCIL AT QUEENS
The Y. W. C. A. Cabinet Train
ing Council for a group of small
colleges in North Carolina aul Vir
ginia was held at Queen's College,
Charlotte, on October 8-9.
The meetings were held under the
leadership of Miss Stella Scurlock,
secretary for the Southern Region,
and Miss Lois McDonald, secretary
for the association at North Caro
lina College for Women.
Twenty-three delegates from the
associations at Davenport, Guilford,
Mitchell, Atlantic Christian College,
Brevard, Carolina, and the Averitt
College, Danville, Va., were pres
At the opening meeting, which was
held on Saturday night, a cordial
welcome to Queen's was made by
Dr. Fraser, the president of the col
lege. A hearty speech of response
was made by Miss Frances Johnson
of Davenport College. Miss Mar
guerite Wilson was appointed to act
as student executive during the con
ference. A steering committee was
appointed to plan the details of the
The whole devotional service of
the conference centered around the
thought, "Ye are the light of the
world." Sunday morning at 9:00
o'clock Miss Scurlock led an infor
mal discussion about the place of
the Y. W. C. A. on the campus. It
was the conclusion that the purpose
is four-fold, evangelistical, social
and missionary, for the development
of Christian character, and the pro
motion of membership and service
in the church.
In the afternoon Miss McDonald
talked on "Religious Education."
She emphasized the fact that people
are now asking what there is in re
ligion, and leaders are expecting
the solution of world problems to
come through Jesus Christ. Students
everywhere are thinking about relig
ion and needing religious experi
ences, and if the Y. W. C. A. is to
meet them it must begin with the in
The most interesting meeting of
all, which was led by Miss McDon
and, was held in the college •chapel
at vesper hour Sunday evening.
M iss McDonald was able to make
her subject, "Women in Industry"
very real because of her intimate
knowledge of conditions. Last sum
mer, she and eleven other college
women tried an experiment in in
dustrial life by getting jobs in fac
tories in Atlanta, Ga. She was a
cotton mill worker on a night shift
from 6:00 p. m. to 6:00 a. m. The
group found in a large measure
the life of the woman in industry is
robbed of all happiness because of
long hours, low wages, bad health,
and lack of social life. They con
cluded that there is a very little of
the spirit of Jesus in our industrial
system and that legislation is neces
sary in the southern states.
The Queen's College girls gave a
very enjoyable social in the form
of a "boy and girl" party in Bur
well Hall on Saturday night. The
visitors were entertained with a pic
nic breakfast on the college campus

The International Relations club
of Guilford College met in Found
ers' Hall for a brief called session
on October 13. The purpose of hte
meeting was the reorganization of the
club and the establishment of a
working basis for the year.
Election of officers and the ap
pointment of committees were pos
poncd until the first regular meeting.
It was decided to present the pur
pose of the club to the entire stud
ent body at chapel sometime in the
near future. An opportunity will
then be given for all who are inter
ested in the public discussion of
great questions of current interest,
to have a voice in the selection of
the question to be studied by the
club this year.
The League of Nation.-; and the
Washington conference were the two
bases of the discussions for the last
two years, during which time the
meetings of the club created a wide
spread interest on the campus.
