QUAKER BASEBALL TEAM
FAILS TO BUNCH HITS
ANO LOSES FIVE GAMES
Lose to Carolina, Wake
Forest, Duke and
Quakers Unable to Over
come One Run Lead
By Nereus English
After making a good debut before
the baseball fandom by winning over
N. C. State and High Point college,
the Quaker nine during the Easter
holidays lost five consecutive games to
U. of N. C., Wake Forest, Lenoir-
Rhvne and Duke University. Three of
these five games were lost by one run
margins, and one game went ten inn
ings. Coach Doak's men played well,
but the team lacked the final punch
that it takes to win ball games.
CAROLINA DEFEATS GUILFORD
It took ten innings of first class
baseball for the university of N. C. to
defeat Guilford on the Carolina dia
mond by the score of 5-4. The game
was fast and exciting all the way.
Guilford scored in the first inning.
Smithdeal got a clean hit, and was
sacrificed to second, stole third and
counted on a fly to centerfield. Gib
son, the Tar Heel right-fielder tied the
count with a homer to left field.
Guilford scored one run in the third
and two more in the fourth, on hits by
Frazier, C. Smith, Lindley and Smith
deal. In the fourth inning Carolina
got next to Smith, Guilford pitcher,
and tied the score at four all. From
then it was nip and tuck until the Tar
Heels pushed over the winning run in
the tenth inning after two men were
away. Both teams played in great

SECOND STRING MEN WIN
OVER JAMESTOWN CLUB
The Quaker second nine played two
games with the National Guards at
Raeford during the Eeaster holidays.
In the first game they lost by the score
of 7-3, and.in the second they held
the soldier boys to a 6-4 score. Over
half of the opposing team are ex-col
lege varsity and professional players.
Both teams played jam-up ball.
Brown and Sherrill were the battery
for the first day, and Hodgin, Thomas
and Sherrill held the guards in check
in the second set-to. "Toad" Thomas
was the feature fielder on the trip,
making a number of nice catches.
"Red" Hughes copped the batting hon
ors in both games. He connected with
the soldier twirler's offering for three
triples and a single in one game and
a triple and two singles in the other.
His batting average for the two games
On High School Day the second
string men took into camp the James
town club of the Guilford County
league and entertained them, allowing
them the light end of a 7-5 score. Ev
ery man who has worn a suit this year
was given a chance. Every man, who
trotted in, played good ball but the
honors of the game went to "Block"
Smith umpire. Half of the crowd went
away without knowing that it wasn't
Bill Kle:n calling the game.
Fenell pitched a good game for the
club and Shore did the receiving.
Brown and F. Smith, battery for the
locals made a winning combination.
Miss Elliott Called Home
Miss Alfreda Elliott, who during the
present year has been assisting in the
French department at the college, was
recently called home on account of the
serious illness of her father, whose
home is in Nova Scotia. Prof. Milton
C. Davis, Madame Hoffmann and Miss
Elizabeth Parker will take care of Miss
Elliott's work for the rest of this year.

PROF. HAWORTH TELLS OF
EIGHT COLLEGE SPIRITS
Prof. D. R. Haworth, in his chapel
address Friday morning, spoke on eight
great spirits which pervade our college
life. He used eight spirits which begin
with the letters in the name Guilford.
The first spirit is "Go." This word
is the life of an institution. The se
cond spirit is "Unity." "The act of
one of us is the act of all," said Prof.
Haworth. As an example he cited to
us our baseball games in which nine
men act for all of us.
The third spirit is "Industry," which
means work. The necessity of work is
a blessing to mankind.
The fourth spirit is "Loyalty." "I
sometimes think that loyalty is the
biggest word in the English language,"
said Prof. Haworth.
The fifth spirit is "Fun." A laugh
is the cheapest amusement that man
The sixth spirit is "Orderliness."
This applies to dress, campus, room,
study, schedule and other like items of
Th? seventh spirit is "Right Living."
1 his is undoubtedly the hardest thing
to do. We admire a man who has the
principles of right living and sticks to
The eighth and last spirit is "Deter
mination." This is the spirit that takes
us from the slump of failure to the
pinnacle of success. Determination has
given many a great man his place in

DR. BINFOBO DISCUSSES
BUILBING OF STUDENT BODY
In continuing his series of chapel
talks on "The Building of a College,"
Dr. Binford spoke on "The Building of
the Student Body," Thursday morning.
It has been said by some men that
the student body will take care of it
self after the buildings are erected and
a faculty provided. Dr. Bniford ex
plained such to be a doubtful way to
build up a student body.
"As in business," said Dr. Binford,
"we must advertise our achievements
and our aims. We do in one way or
another choose our student body."
First, we choose students by our
Second, by the way we administer
the work; by high standards of scholar
ship, morals and conduct.
Third, by the effect of the students
who go out from this institution.
The last of these three is probably
the most important of all. "You," said
Dr. Binford, speaking to the whole
student body, "are the choosers of our

College in the fifteen years that High
School Day has been an annual event
The two winners were picked from
the four best of the ones who had par
ticipated in the elimination contests

test and spoke for the prize in the
evening: Misses Katherine Boyles, of
Winston-Salem; Genevieve Dalton of
the I. O. O. F., of Goldsboro; Virginia
McClamroek, of Greensboro, and Nina

set of books and the young man a gold
medal, both prizes given by the Zata
sian, Philomathean, Websterian and
Henry Clay Literary societies.
The judges for the preliminaries were
enthusiastic over the splendid showing
that was made. Not a single recitation
or declamation was given in the tryouts
that could have been adjudged a poor
one. It showed that careful prepara

CATALOGUE NUMBER OF
BULLETIN OFF PRESS
The new catalogues have come off
the press and except for a slight light
ness of paper resemble those issued an
nually for the past twenty or twenty
five years. It, of course, contains no
announcements as to sudden changes,
but only embodies the changes that
have taken place during the present
year. Within itself, the introduction
of aeroplane view of the campus, marks
the only decided change from the oth
ers. The picture takes in the whole
campus, when the trees were in full
leaf, and shows distinctly the placing
of the buildings and the symmetry of
The Freshman course, instituted this
