for the spectators who were largely !
The Blues started ofT with a rush;
rolling up a 14-5 lead in the first 12 |
minutes of play. The Quakers called
time out at this juncture. This act
proved effective, and the Blues were un
able to score again until the Guilford
Quint had evened the count.
As the time grew short the game be

STATE WINS BY ONE POINT
The Stale College Quint was forced
to go an extr period Thursday night
defe t Guilford 32-31.
The Quakers obviously outplayed the
State five throughout the game. The
contest was a hard fought melee ,
and equaled the Lenoir Rhyne game
The Quakers scored first with a foul
shot. Stale then rolled in two points
.nd the score proceeded to see-saw
back and forth to a 15-13 count in
favor of State at the half. The guard
ing was superb, Tew being especially
good for Guilford while McDowell was
starring for State. Moose's defense
playing was also of the highest c.fibre.
At the outset of the second half
Guilford daz/Jed the State team with
an offensive charge which tied the score
18-18, in a few moments, Smith and
Ferell starring in the rejuvenation.;
Smith caged ;.n over-hand shot to give
Guilford the lead but State tied again. '
Smith shot another from past the
center point, the ball sailing through
without touching the liioop. A foul j
point and another field goal gave Guil- j
ford a 25-20 lead. However, State i
proceeded to drop in two long ones 1
reducing the Qu ker lead to one
point, which was soon turned into a
one point lead for State. Smith came
through with another goal which State
evened up with a foul shot. Thus the
score stood, 27-27, when the time was
called for the second half.
Smith and Ferrell shot a goal apiece

PRINCIPAL OF PALMER
SCHOOL GIVES AO3RESS
ON THE RACE QUESTION
Male Quartan Entertains If'itli Several
A party including Mrs. Brown, the
principal, and the male quartet from
the Palmer Memorial Institute, a
school for the colored, gave to the
.school of Mi-sions Sunday night a
very interesting educational program.
After the quartet sang a group of
three popular negro melodies, as the
opening part of the program, Mrs.
Brown gave a splendid talk on the
| great race question which is now con
! fronting the people of the United
| States. In her talk Mrs. Brown
emphasiztd the fact that the negro
race is not asking that it be placed on
j the same level with the white race in
j order that the two might intermarry or
' attend the same churches but that it
is asking that the white people give the
j negroes a chance to develop. Also
j that they be given equal privileges
' and rights especially in the court
In the latter part of her talk the
' speaker gave a brief history of the
growth and development of the Palmer
| Memorial Institute which i situated
| about twelve miles east of Greensboro.
| The school, fi st known as Sedalia, be
gan about fifteen years ago in a log
hut with an enrollment of les* than
fifty. Now the Institute since new
j biddings have been added has an en
rollment of about a hundred and fiftv.
After Mrs. Brown's talk the
j quartet sang another negro selection
j as the last number of the program.

MRS. HAWORTH DISCUSSES
GOD AND ART AT Y, W, C. A,
Mrs. Samuel Haworth talked to
V. W. at tlieir regular meeting Thurs
day evening on "Religion expressed by
\rt". She pointed out three noted
places where one may go to see this
artistic reproduction of religion,
in reality. These are: Gallery of the
British Museum, in which may be
Imind little houses luiilt by the Egypt

Dagon Pagoda in Rangoore, Birma.
In ill's Pagoda everything gave ex
pression to art. This too was used for

in Rome, religion and worship were ex

In n odern days literature and music

Art has not always flourished.
There was a time of rivalry when every
Pope wanted his Cathedral the finest.
These arts were stolen.
I here has been in the minds of the
M'ople the love for the beautiful from
the beginning. "The most beautiful
thing we can make," said Mrs.
liaworth. "is a fitting gift to God."
Why have the Protestants not carried
over all these arts? Music has been
practically the only one that has not
been discarded. Jews anil Friends
have simple meeting places. Why
have they discarded these arts? The
Jews probably because of the First
Commandment. The Quakers say God
is a Spirit.
Why could there not been some way
f using these arts without abusing
litem? There was too much beauty to
commune with God. " Why can't we
keep our worship simple," Mrs.
Haworth stated in closing, "and let

CAPTAIN OF THE FIGHTING
QUAKER BASEBALL TEAM
I eteran Has Served At Short Stop
Position For Three Years
Nereus English of Trinity. N. C. '
was elected captain of the "Fighting
Quaker baseball team for the com- j
ing season. "Uu" is following the |
willow for his foutth ye. r.
Captain English has as a basis for :
his team six letter men who played
last year. The veterans, together
with the abundant supply of new
material, should blend into a te 111 of
the first calibre.
For the past three years English has
held down one of the most difficult
positions on the field and on the whole
has very few errors chalked up against
him. He is always on the job when
a difficult chance or h ril try coa.es
his way. It is reported that "Uu"
always comes tlrough in the pinches
anil swats the apple when necessary
to score thi- winning run.
Captain English reports that there
is an abundance of m terial to pick
from this year. Be-ides five other
letter men who have had much season- ]
ing and baseball experience there are
twenty five other candidates, trying
out for positions. The squad promises
to be larger than any squ d during
the past few years. Already the
aspirants are being put through light
daily workout consisting of batting
practice and long cross county run-,
rhe team will miss very much the l
three varsity men th t failed to re
turn this year. However, with much
new material to pick from there is
every indication that there will be a
very successful season.
