Without Miss Louise The
College Will Seem Bleak
ENJOYING A REST
Returning Students Feel the
Loss of Beloved Teacher
From Faculty List.
PRESIDENT PAYS TRIBUTE
With the opening of school the usual
necessities were apparently present, but
one obvious one was missed by all—
the smile of welcome and useful ad
vice which has so long been offered by
Miss Louise Osborne.
It is to express our benevolent grati
tude that the Guilfordian wishes to
heartily endorse this tribute of love
and sincere remembrance paid to her,
who for thirty-four years has served
Guilford College as Dean of Women.
(Taken from a report made by Dr.
Binfold in the 1920 N. C. Yearly-Meet
"We wish to record at this time our
appreciation of the long and faithful
service of H. Louise Osborne as Dean of
Women. She has been connected with
the college since 1892 and has given her
life to her work in a most unselfish
way. Her sympathetic devotion to the
young women of the college and her
untiring efforts to protect and guide
them into a wholesome way of life
have been marked by unusual success.
The young, men and women who have
crime under the influence of her spirit
and have received the benefit of her
koen purtiiiGirt i ifcii siu\c gunc out
into the world and lived lives that are
a real tribute to her genius and her
personal power. In devotion to her
work and in efficiency in carrying out
the purposes of the institution, we have
not had a more valuable member of the
faculty. We regret that failing
strength makes it necessary .for her to
withdraw from the active service as
the Dean of Women, but we are happy
to be assured that her influence will re
main with us. In the love of our stu
dents, in the incidents that our grad
uates like to recall, in the traditions,
and spirit of the college Miss Osborne
continues to hold a central place."
Miss Louise, as she was called by the
students, graduated from Earlham Col
lege in Richmond, Indiana, with the
class of 1887. From this time until she
came to Guilford College, she taught in
schools in Indiana and Illinois. These
thirty-four years Miss Louise has serv
ed at this institution not only as Dean
of Women, but as Professor of Latin.
Through her motherly disposition she
has won for herself that deep feeling of
love and devotion in the hearts, not
only of the students, but of all who

CO-EDS RETURNING WITH
Friendships Formed Last Year Are
Being Renewed—Shy Maidenly
Glances Are Not Ignored.
FACULTY MEMBERS NOT IMMUNE
The making of new acquaintances
and the renewing of old ones has af
forded an interesting spectacle at the
opening of school this fall as both new
uHii aid students Were arriving.
A general sound of laughter and
words of greeting and welcome filled
and suddenly put new life into the
quiet atmosphere of the campus. Upon
first arriving, naturally the new stu
dents were a bit shy. For awhile they
preferred grouping themselves into two
groups, the boys in one corner each
trying to conceal himself with the ex
ception of one eye, and the girls who
formed the other group were by no
means unsuccessful in attracting the
attention of the bashful boys. As soon
as a more adventurous boy found cour
age enough to cast a glance across "no
man's land" to the other group, the
others began to try it, as each glance
brought a broad maidenly smile in re
turn. Finally all shyness was forgotten
and the groups of students gradually
united into one big group.
After brief discussions of the closing
summer vacation the overjoyed couples
and groups began talking over with one
another their work for the coming year.
In all the excitement of the. opening
of school, old friendship soon became
so thoroughly renewed that it almost
entirely slipped the minds of some that
rules and regulations concerning cam
pus life still exist at Guilford. But
fortunately, there were a few authori
ties on the campus who were able to re
mind the forgetful ones.
This joyous game of making ac
quaintances was not among the stu
dents alone. The faculty too, is playing
a very important part in this game.
The several new members of the fac
ulty, as well as old, could scarcely be
recognized from the students so far
as personal appearance is concerned,
were it not for the fact that some of
them are able through careful efforts,
to grow and cultivate a very respect
able little mustache. Others who do
not prefer stay-comb, not the bald
headed style, take great pride in the
permanent wave or the shingle bob.
So it may readily be seen that the
faculty, so far as the social part of
the campus life is concerned, is not a
separate group from the student body
but each one is as a student, a member
of the great Guilford family.

rivals gathered on Founders Porch to
hear a lecture by Dr. Hobbs.
After a song and yell rehearsal Sat
urday evening the Freshmen went to
Memorial Hall to hear lectures by Sam

Mr. Haworth compared both men ant 1

Amid Scenes of Wild Revelry and Merrymaking
Returning Sophomores Welcome New Freshmen
The Quaker silence of Guilford Col
lege was broken last Thursday and Fri
day by the arrival of a number of
Freshmen in quest of higher learning.
Different members of the Y. M. and Y.
W. Cabinets were present to meet all
trains lest some of the new seekers of
knowledge might, by mistake, pass by
unheeded. The stream continued to
swell until by Friday night over 80 new
students had arrived. Then there was
a mad rush to meet roommates, unpack
trunks and settle down to college life.
Friday was registration day. All
Freshmen were given a card to fill out
telling their name, age, schools attend
ed, etc. After answering a number of
such questions the new students retired
to their various places of abode.
By Monday morning the new stu
dents were beginning to feel at hoirte.
Practically all of them were fast be
coming collegiate; they could use sev
eral campus expressions, with ease, im
itate the different professors and talk
with a great deal of enlightenment
about college courses. There was noth
ing else to be desired.
Monday morning saw the arrival of
the old students who walked in and
seemed to take everything in charge.
It was rumored throughout the Fresh

usually talented pupil of Leschetizky

the front rank, both as a teacher and
pianist. She has taught in Europe
and is well qualified both musically
and as a pedagogue.

like roaring lions among their own fel
low classmates now became as meek as
lambs and permitted the merrymaking
Sophomores to welcome them to Guil
ford ; the place which only a few hours
before had been a freshman domain.
Indeed, by the time the shades of night
had begun to fall upon the Guilford
campus, the Freshmen were willing to
join with the Preacher who said, "Van
ity of vanities; all is vanity. What pro :
ifft hath a man of all his labour which
he taketh under the sun?"
