QUAKER BASKETBALL SEASON
OPENS DEC. TWENTIETH
King's College and South Caro
lina Pay First Visit to G. C.
Guilford's basketball team faces a
fairly heavy schedule, which be
gins Dec. 20 at Greensboro and ends
M arch 2 with Trinity at Durham.
Between those dates Guilford makes
a week's trip to South Carolina
and western part of the state, two
trips to eastern Carolina and plays
seven games on her home court.
King's College and the University
of South Carolina make their first
visit here, this year. Although the
crimson and gray have never met
the western Tennessee battlers on
any field of sport, yet a glance at
King's College's record shows us
that real players are produced there.
University of South Carolina is an
old rival but up until this year
Guilford has made the trip to their
battle ground. It will be a great
drawing card to have these two
strangers on our floor this year.
Don't forget the dates; King's Col
lege, at Guilford, Jan. 31, and U.
S. C. at Guilford, Feb. 8.
Coach Doak's warriors make their
first trip to the eastern part of the
state Feb. 12. On this stay they
meet Wake Forest, N. C. State, and
wind up with Elon, Feb. 14. Fol
lowing this short trip is a week's
journey to South Carolina and
western North Carolina. Guilford
will meet, Furman, Wofford, Aslie
ville Y, Lenior, Statesville Y, and
Davidson on this trip with the seven
home games against Greensboro Y,
King's College, N. C., State U. S. C.,

Y. W. BAZAAR A SUCCESS
The annual Y. W. C. A. Bazaar
whi h was held Friday night, De
cember 15, in New Garden hall J
was a decided success. The attend-1
ance was unusually large, a fact |
which insured the financial as well j
as the social success of the affair.
The dining room of New Garden |
was effectively decorated with the!
various Christmas colors and the!
booths were artistically arranged in
different parts of the dining room
from which were sold many usful

SIX MEN WIN PLACES IN
TRYOUTS FOR COLLEGE
Will Meet Hampden-Sydney
On Cancellation of U. S.
The tryouts for places on Guil
ford's debating teams which will
meet Hampden-Sidney this year,
were held by the Debating Council
on Thursday evening, December 14.
Ten men came out for the tryouts.
Six of them won places on the
team, two alternates being chosen
along with the four regular debat
There was quite a lot of compe
tition aroused among among those
seeking places on the team and the
judges, Dr. E. C. Perisho, Profesosr
F. C. Anscombe and Professor Rob
ert Dann, experienced some difficulty
in choosing the team from the
The successful men were: J. Spot
Taylor, John W. Cannon, Hershel
Macon and William Blair, with Fred
Winn and Thomas R. English as
alternates. All these men have had
quite a bit of exeprience in de
| bating, although Taylor is the only
man who has represented Guilford
previously in an intercollegiate de
bate. He was a member of last
year's negative team.
The two literary societies each
have three men on the team. Taylor,
Cannon and Blair are from the
Henry Clay literary society, while
Macon, Winn and English are mem
bers of the Websterian society.
At a meeting of the debators it
was decided that Taylor and Blair
with Winn for alternate should
compose the affirmative team. The
negative team, which goes to
Hampden-Sidney, is to consist of
Macon and Cannon with English
as an alternate.
The question decided on for de
bate between Hampde-Sidney and
Guilford is "Resolved, that the
United States government should
cancel her loans to her allies made
during the period from April 6,
1917, to November 11, 1918." The
date of the debate has not been
definitely decided upon but it will
be sometime the latter part of
Two years ago Guilford won
both sides of a dual debate from
Hampden-Sidney. All loyal sup
porters of Guilford await with in

DR. HOBBS DISCUSSES
PURPOSE OF EDUCATION
The purpose of education was
the gist of Dr. L. L. Hobb's lecture
in chapel Wednesday morning. "Ed
ucation's purpose," said Dr. Hobbs,
"is to prevent deception."
Words in themselves are deceptive,
he continued. It has been said
that language was designed to en
able one to conceal his thouhts.
It is almost impossible not to de
ceive other people. But education,
does at least, enable one to disillu
sion himself, which means that by
education, we can see ourselves in
our proper relation to other people:
GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., DECEMBER 20, 1922.
DO IT FOR GUILFORD
CHALLENGE OF BANQUET
Annual Affair Unusually Suc
cessful; L. L. White Acts
"Do Jit for Guilford"' was the
challenge Prof. L. Lee White, toast
master, flyng out to the students at
the atlnual student-faculty banquet
held Saturday night, December, 16.
Fifteen rahs for the faculty was
the deafening yell of the students as
they filed from the dining hall of
j Founder's after the most successful
I and enjoyable banquet ever tendered
; the students by the faculty of Guil-
I ford College.
The dining room of Founder's was
| converted into a typical banqueting
hall, with long tables and glistening
silver and in keeping with the seas
on, every coumn, mantel and cor
ner of the room was the resting
place of a shimmering Christmas
tree, scintillating in the red and
Each class entered, singing a
song of their own composition, and
were directed in their respective
places by Professor Pancoast, mas
ter of ceremonies.
Professor L. L. White as toast
master, kept enthusiasm at a high
ebb by his wit and humor. Fling
ing "The Challenge" "Do it for
Guilford" into the resounding hall
lie adroitly swung the method of
procedure into a semi-business or
ganization form. In answer to this
challenge he proposed that each
class respond with a toast on some
advantage or need of Guilford,
In response, Edward Holder, '25,
responded with a toast on "Health
and Recreation" which was followed
by Beulah Allen '27, on "Building

psychology of business was summed j
up in the parable "To him that hath j

"Nothing succeeds like success"
he continued. "Guilford College is
a growing institution and its growth
can be and will be attributed to
some of the principles that help to
establish strong business organiza
tions." First, the individual who
shows interest and works; second,
co-operation of employer and em
ployee, which may be compared to
co-operation of faculty and student;
and third, the constituency of the

M iss McDonell gave brief sketch
es of her experiences last summer
in this work. Twelve college girls
went to Atlanta, Ga., and secured
jobs as ordinary laborers in cotton,
paper and overall factories. One
was an usher in a vaudeville show
and one clerked in a ten-cent store.
Miss McDonnell herself worked in
a cotton factory as a spooler, be
ing on the right shift from six
o'clock at night until six o'clock
in the morning. She was required
to work the twelve hours without
any rest and there were no seats
provided for any of the workers.
The lighting system was so poorly
arranged that one woman had al
most lost her sight in two years
From this experiment the investi
gators found that there was no move
ment to better the conditions of
the factory workers and that very
few of the girls received enough
to support themselves safely. It
requires about fiftreen dolars a
week to live in a city and the
average wage was seven or eight
dollars. The majority of the girls '
have no money for recreation.
Miss McDonnell believes that
these girls are not different from
other girls, except that circum
stances forced them to live this
monotonous, and in many cases dis
agreeable life. It is a problem '
which the \. W. C. A as women
and as an association should take
definite and active steps to solve.

SENIOR CLASS ENJOYS
NOVEL CLASS MEETING
The New Garden senior girls were
hostesses to the senior class at a
very delightful party in the base
ment of New Garden Hall on
Tuesday evening, December 12,
from 6:30 to 9 o'clock.
When the seniors arrived at the
back door of New Garden they
were escorted into the basement
which was attracively arranged with
holiday decorations. Immediately
much excitement resulted because
the room was profusely decorated
with large bunches of mistletoe.
A short Christmas program was
given by the girls. Allene Johnson
told the story "Christmas Day in the
Evening," and Ruth Reynolds read
a Christmas poem from James Whit
comb Riley. This was followed by
a vocal duet by Vera Farlow and
Josephine Mock, and a Christmas
hymn on the victrola.
But the most interesting feature
was yet to follow in the removeal of
the gifts from the Christmas tree.
The refreshments consisting of or
anges, nuts and delicious sea foam
candy were then served.
The merriment was kept up by a
number of interesting games and
music until 9:00 o'clock when the
guests reluctantly departed, having
