TO TIIE ALUMNI
Since the opening of the school
year, a number of issues of the Giul
fordian have been sent out to old
Guilford students and alumni. The
Alumni Association and Guilfordian
board have acted together in doing this
in an effort to re-create interest in
Guilford College. They have hoped
that a few messages from their alma
mater as found in the Guilfordian,
would create a desire to become an
active member in the Alumni Associa
In order to make this a convenient
thing to do the Associaition has agreed
to allow the present annual fee to stand
but. in addition to active membership
in the Association it will arrange with
the Guilfordian board to have the Col
lege paper sent for a year to all who
send in their regular yearly fee. For
that reason there have been distributed
letters with a handy blank that removes
all red tape that usually accompanies
making a subscription. Fill out and
send this blank at once. The Guilford
ian cannot afford to carry the extra
1.000 subscribers but it is hoped that
not a single person will miss an issue.
This is the last issue that will be sent
"EXCELSIOR" UP TO DATE
The Glee Club sang "Excelsior" last
year, as one of its numbers. Here is
a revised edition of this famous poem,
taken from the Navy Log.
(With All Necessary Apologies.)
The shades of night were falling flat
As at a mess hall table sat
A youth who strove with all his might
To eat a biscuit stuffed with white
His brow was sad, his eyes were weak,
They dripped the teardrops in his
He held within his doubtled fist
A sausage as he loudly hissed
He spied upon a nearby plate
As if left there by kindly fate,
A croquet lying all alone;
He hit and we heard him groan
"Try not the hash," his comrade said,
" 'Tis stuffed with grass and rancid
"Not grass, but something just as
The youth replied, "They call this junk
Then homeward went the weary lad,
His stomach ached, his heart Was sad;
He went to sleep in his own bed
And clutched the mattress as he said,
The morning dawned clear and fair,
The breakfast bell rang on the air;
The youth prepared his breakfast food
And murmured as he softly chewed
At dinner time his tired mind
Was more to soup than meat inclined
And as it trickled down inside
The youth most gratefully replied,

we expect the Mohammedans to have
faith in him for a life hereafter? How
do we expect to have any success in
spreading a teaching among strangers,
that to them at least, seems a failure
among the people who are teaching it?
If we wish to be successful in our Near
East missions we must first change our
own national and individual lives to

The people are friendly towards those
who enter their land on missions that
they realize are for their own good.

The thing that is repulsive in Chris
tianity t> the people of the Near East
is the type of christian worship that
is prevalant in their locality. They
are a people who worship one god in
simplicity and without symbolism. The
christian churclies there have statues
and images in them that Mohammedans
take to be objects of worship. They
hear of the Father, Son, Holy Ghost
and the Virgin Mary and believe that
the Christians are worshiping four

Thursday evening Doctor Russell
spoke to the joint meeting of the
Y. M. and Y. _ W. C. A. on the sub
ject of the attitude of China and Japan
The question in the minds of these
orientals is not one of a mode of life
but is whether or not they wish to
accept tile kind of Christianity that
they see in the United States. Ameri
can commercialism in China has taken
a relentless hold on the people and the
only Way they can mantain their rights
is by force. The idea is becoming
prevalent that in order to get ones
rights under Christianity one must use
force. China and Japan have great
industrial resources and millions of
men that could be brought into action
i:i case of war. They are learning to
use our own methods and weapons
against us when we give them the pre
text. The Japanese nation is the new
est of the great world powers.
She, like all newcomers in a strange
-urrounding; is sensitive. The insult
, f the exclusion of their race from the
United States has raised a question
in their minds as to whether or not
we really mean to be Christians accord
ing to the Bible. They see that the
practices of our Western Civilization
and commercial life are wrong when
judged according to the standards of
our own religion. And again is raised
the question in the East; If Christianity
is not a success among its sponsors,
why should we try it?
Friday morning Doctor Russell gave
an interesting allegorical talk entitled,
"Do not kill the bird of Paradise." Bad
means never brings a good ending. A
Loy took a watch from a jeweller's
window one day while the jeweller
was not looking. At first the boy
was very happy, but he soon found
that he didn't have what he wanted
after all. He couldn't show the watch
to his friends for fear that he would
An African hunter had heard of the
bird of paridise and wished to see it
very much. One day at noon he went
to the place where it appeared and
gazed upon its beautiful rainbow colors.
He was so enraptured that he pulled
up his gun killed the bird of paradise
in order that might have it for his
own. But when he went to pick it
up he found a lifeless bloody bird
instead of the beautiful creature which
he had heard so much about.
We should keep the best things of
life just a little beyond our reach to that
we may enjoy and appreciate them to
Anyone who waits for times to get
normal before doing something will
never do anything.
Improvements come and improve
ments go but life goes on forever in
much the same old wav.
