OF MISS GILBERT
Hockey Practice Already Begun
With Eighty-five Signed Up
For the Sport
TENNIS IS ALSO POPULAR
New Athletic Equipment is Ocdered.
Inter Class Series Will Open
The fact that there was a seemingly
unavoidable slump in girls' athletics at
Guilford College last year will soon be
forgotten. • New interest has filled the
girls with pep and enthusiasm, and the
coming season bids fair to be one for
friendly rivalry and cooperation in de
veloping girls' athletics on the campus.
The most important factor in this
cultivation of feminine physical alert
ness is the new girls' athletic director,
Miss Dorothy Gilbert, a graduate of
Earlham College and graduate student
at Columbia university. She will also
have charge of the girls' physical educa
tion. Under her capable directorship
the prospects for good teams in field
hockey, tennis, basket-ball, and track,
in their proper seasons, seem bright
There are eighty-five girls out for
hockey and approximately fifty girls
have signed up for tennis. There is
still a considerable number who have
not signed up for either sport.
The inter-class series in hockey will
be held early in November; a tennis
tournament will also be held.
New clubs and balls have been order
ed for the use of the hockey squads,
the fields are in excellent condition, and
there seems to be plenty of good ma
terial in the number who have played
this sport before. Field hockey is a
well known European game which has
developed with increasing popularity
in America for the past five years.
Soccer may be introduced at the end
of the hockey season.

single type of men but has a universal
appeal to all types and classes of men
who come to the college campus. The
thing that gets your attention gets you.
Let us all check up on ourselves and
really see what we are made of. Why
not establish high moral and ethical
standards and by cooperating with the
college leaders make this one of the
highest spirited and enthusiastic Asso
ciations in the State?
"What does the Y. M. C. A. do at Guil

red cord and a pencil, the blank pages
were quickly filled with the various
signatures of those present, faculty,
students, and old scholars were soon
mingled in animated moving groups as
old friends and new acquaintances in

Outdoors, at each side of the steps,

Along the walks strolled many

BEATTY IS STAR
Duke's Aerial Attack Over
comes Quakers Weakened
By Loss of Beatty
WAS CLEAN FOUGHT GAME
On Saturday, September 25th, at Dur
ham, Guilford college opened her foot
ball season with Duke university as an
opponent. It was poor football weather,
the excessive heat causing players to
lose from five to ten pounds each from
Tlw; score was 32 to 0 in favor of
Duke university; but the score was not
a true indication of the playing of the
two teams. Guilford outplayed Duke
the first quarter, getting within 20 yards
of Duke's goal, where Beatty, Guilford's
quarter-back lacked a few inches of
registering a drop kick. In the second
quarter Duke, failing to make gains
through the line, began a series of
passes, which netted two touch downs
for 13 points, which was the score at
the end of the first half. During the
whole game Duke made 13 first downs
to Guilford's four. Duke was penalized
60 yards and Guilford 15. Duke com
pleted seven passes out of 15 attempts,
and Guilford completed three out of
four attempts. In the second half Guil
ford's team was somewhat disorganized
on account of the loss of quarter-back
Beatty through an injury to his ankle,
and Duke scored 19 points. The game
was free from roughness. All of Duke's
last year men were in the game except,
one, while Guilford has lost four of
its last year first string men. However,
Guilford made a very creditable show
The lineup of the two teams was:

PRES. BINFORD EXTENDS
WELCOME TO FRESHMEN
Expressed Hope That Students Will
Aid and Cooperate With
President Raymond Binford opened
his welcome address to the students of
Guilford college, Tuesday morning, by
reading a passage of scripture. After a
silent prayer, Dr. Binford said, "It is
with real thankfulness that we welcome
you this morning." He mentioned the
absent faces among the faculty and
suggested that their loss be made up
by the students living sacrificial lives
and by standing for the ideals of those
who cannot be back.
The examination approved by Dr.
Binford for students consisted of the
following requirements: First, that one
be man enough to get up promptly, go
to meals and classes promptly, and go
to bed at a fixed time every night. Sec
ond, that one be able to go off and
study lessons until he knows them.
Third, that one lie able to carry loose
change in his pocket without spending
it. Fourth, that one be willing to fail
rather than steal information from an
