THE GUILFORDIAN VOL. IX. 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.

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 gifts. Persimmon pudding with whipped cream was served and this added much to the enjoyment of the evening. SIX MEN WIN PLACES IN TRYOUTS FOR COLLEGE DEBATING TEAM Will Meet Hampden-Sydney On Cancellation of U. S. War Loans 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 ors. 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 group.. 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 February. Two years ago Guilford won both sides of a dual debate from Hampden-Sidney. All loyal sup porters of Guilford await with in terest the outcome of her second forensic clash with the Virginia college. 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 As Toastmaster "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 green lights. 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 and Grounds. ' "The Intelligence and Methods Bureau" by Janie Mae Butler, 26 and "The Social Welfare Department" by Eva Holder, '24 completed the first half of the pro gram. Prof. J. D. White, listed as "The Efficiency Expert," explained to the students some methods of raising money for their Alma Mater em ployed by the members of the col leges. Dr. Perisho discussing the "Psy chology of Busiress" stated that the psychology of business was summed j up in the parable "To him that hath j it shall be given and from him that hath not even that which he hath shall be taken away." "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 organization. "This business institution of Guil ford is situated in one of the most progressive states in the union and there is no reason why it cannot become the greatest co-educational school in the greatest state of the union, North Carolina." Spot Taylor, Jr., '23, giving! "Some Statistics" concluded his STUDENT SECRETARY FROM N. C. C. W SPEAKS ON WOMEN IN INDUSTRY Miss McDonnell Tells of Her Work in Atlanta Factories M iss McDonald, student secreta ry of the Y. W. C. A., from North Carolina College for Women, gavo a lecture at Y. W. Thursday even ing on, "Student industrial co-oper ation." Student industrial co-operation work is carried on under the aus pices of the Y. W. C. A. and its purpose is to be an integrating fac tor between college girls and In dustrial girls. 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 time. 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. MISS RICKS EXPLAINS FACILITIES OF LIBRARY Miss Ricks, who had charge of chapel Friday, December 15, told the students how to acquire a working knowledge of the library and its resources, giving special at tention to the value and use of the Reader's Guide. The librarian discussed the merits of several of the magazines and pe riodicals separately and ueged the students to become better acquaint ed with the library facilities. Allene Johnson Elected Supt. of Sunday School At a joint meeting of the Y. W. and Y. M. C. A. held last Sunday afternoon, Allene Johnson was chosen to succeed Hershal Macon as superintendent of the college Sun day school. The new superinten dent will take charge immediately after the holidays. Other matters of interest and importance to the student body were arrived at. CHORAL SOCIETY GIVES BALFES BOHEMIAN GIRL" Miss Byrd Wins Audience in Title Role; Sings with Finish Before a large and enthusiastic [ audience the Guilford college choral ! society presented Balfe's familiar ! opera, "The Bohemian Girl." Fifty I voices were in the chorus, and un der the direction of James Westley White, the chorus songs with pre cision and splendid tone, each num ber being infused with its true feeling of pathos or pleasure as required. Miss Beatrice Byrd, singing the music of the title role, was in splendid vioce and sang with a very impressive effect, especially in the well known air. "I dreamt That 1 Dwelt in Marble Halls" and in the "Gypsy Bride" song. Mrs. E. C. Caldwell, singing the music of "Gypsy Queen" was espe cially well suited to the part and sang her number with splendid tone and dramatic intensity. Es pecially effective was her duet with J. Foster Barnes. Mr. Barnes' solos were also weil received. J. Gurney Briggs, tenor of High Point, sang with feeling and re markable interpretative art, the old favorite, "Then You'll Remember Me," as well as other airs. Theni semble singing of the quartette wa splendidly accomplished, the voices harmonizing effectively. Mrs. Robert Oann, at the piano, gave sympathetic and satisfactory accompaniments for both chorus and solos. 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 said farewell underneath the mistle toe. Bertha Neal and lone Lowe spent the week end at Pleasant Garden as the guests of Kathleen Riley. Everett Holliday. '22,1 was a visitor on the campus last Satur day. No. 13.
