In the annual Armistice day foot
ball clash at Cone park between
Elon College and Guilford College
the Christians defeated the Quakers
by a score of 20 to 6. Both teams
put up a strong fight, and until the
last quarter it looked like anybody's
game, each team having scored one
Neither team seriously threatened

the ball was punted out of bounds.
The quarter ended with Elon in pos

Aided by two costly fumbles by
Johnson, Elon put over her first
touchdown early in the second quar

to Guilford's fifteen yard line, John

up a stubborn resistance and forced

Old Girls Defeat New
Girls in Last Game
of Baseball Season
The final game of baseball was
played between the old and new
girls, Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 8,
on the Hobbs athletic field. The hard
fight which was put up on both sides
reflects the good work that has been
going 011 back of New Garden. Al
though the new girls did good work,
they were not able to meet their
more experienced opponents with
equal strength in battle. They were
overpowered with a score of 13 to
Among the old girls who showed
skill, Sarah Hodges probably made
the best record, having made three
runs—the highest number made by
any individual. One of these was a
home run and the other a second base
hit. Marion Ward almost equaled
Hodges in skill, making two runs,
one of which was a third base hit.
lone Lowe deserves much credit also.
In addition to the two runs which
she made, she alone made four "put
outs," two of which were flies caught
in immediate succession.
The two runs of the new girls
were made by Pauline Curtis and
Lalah Cox. Rosa Elliott deserves
mention for having fanned a mem
ber of the old girls' team.

Famine conditions in Russia, and
the terrible emergency in Smyrna
and the Near East, make it urgent
that student response exceed the

At typical case of student relief
has been found in the following story
of Sonia, a Russian student, told by
a relief worker.
"This is to introduce Sonia Kap
rolova, the student I have spoken to
you about.' So read the card.
"I glanced at once at Sonia's feet

when one has a good looking, almost

to a pair of poorly-shod broad feet.
"Tijiana was getting the shoes
from the shelf and Sonia was dis
associating one foot from a wet piece
of leather. Moist semi-circles had
crept up her brown stocking from
the sole. The joy in her face at the
sight of the neat, almost,-new shoes
was embarrassing, so much that I
hastened to say, 'I am afraid they
are not going to fit.' It was too
true. Sonia tugged and shoved and
grew much pinker, but the uncom
promising American shoe refused to
give in. Finally she sat down breath
less and murmured something about
wet stockings, but Titiana and I both
warned her that she should not spoil
her feet with narrow shoes. Great
was the disappointment among us.

ORIGINAL SKETCH OF
NEGRO LIFE FEATURE
OF PHIL-CLAY PROGRAM
Local Characters Figure
in Clever Piece of
The members of the Henry Clay
literary society were the guests of
the Philomathean society at its reg
ular biennial reception Friday even
ing, November 10, in Memorial Hall.
The feature of the program was a
sketch of negro life in the South at
the present time. As indicated by
the favors in the form of colonial
iron posts, the setting for the first
number, "Culinary Capers," was
Founders' kitchen. The action con
cerned preparations for supper which
begin at two in the afternoon and
last until five-thirty, and was supple
mei ted by "Uncle Mun's" jig, and
music by the aspiring soloist "Ma'y
The cast included:
Laura, Bertha Zachary; Lizzie,
Elizabeth Brooks; David, Janie Mae
Butler; Mrs. Burgess, Sallie Wilkins;
Pickaninnies, Gladys Futrell, Maude
Simpson, Tiny Raiford.
Uncle Mun, Lalah Cox; College
girls, Ruth Ragsdale, Lloyd Merri
man; Miss Benbow, Edith Macon;
Ma'y Jane, Marie Beamaii.
The players interpreted their parts
exceptionally well, and their conver
sations in the southern darkey dia
lect were strikingly realistic.
The second number of the program
was a group of negro spirituals by
the quartet, Hope Motley, Vera Far
low, Annamae Fowler and Dora
Moore. This number pleased the
audience very much.
In behalf om the society, Helen
Robertson, the president, welcomed
the guests. The Clays who respond
ed were: Ralph Farlow, Spot Taylor,
William Blair, Edward Holder and
James Bar bee.
After the program the meeting
adjourned to Founders' Hall for a
social hour. Here "Darkey's Temp
tation," "Forbidden Fruit," "Hoe
Cake"' and "Pickaninnies Choice"
became chicken salad, pickles, saltine
wafers and Saratoga chips. "Mam
my's Delight" proved to be lemon pie
with whipped cream. "Coon's Stim
ulator" was coffee and mints.
The guests, in addition to members
of the Henry Clay literary society
were: Misses Louise Osborne, SalHe
