PRES. BINFORD FLAYS
IN ATHLETICS TALK
Outlines Scheme For Raising
Money to Develop Guilford's
NOVELTY FOOTBALL GAME
Praises Team For Spirit Shown In
Recent Gridiron Contests With
Dr. Binford talked at length in
Chapel Friday, October 1, about the
possible improvements and develop
ments in Guilford athletics, particular
ly football. Going over the recent
game with Duke, he pointed out that
while the team's morale and pluck were
good, more endurance would have en
abled the line to hold throughout the
game as it did in the first quarter. Dr.
Binford urged that every member of
the student body should feel the re
sponsibility of making it possible for
the team members to observe training
rules in every detail. lie reminded the
men that early hours were vital and
that every training rule must be main
tained every day if the acme of physi
cal efficiency was to be reached. Men
who smoked, or otherwise violated
rules, could not help but lose out, in
juring themselves and their alma
"Though spiritual and mental devel
opment is of prime importance," said
Dr. Binford, "strong physique is nec
essary for a good athletic development,
and physical endurance and efficiency."
As a constructive and new sugges
tion, Dr. Binford proposed working up
a novelty game of football, the gate
receipts of which, if it should be well
worked out, might go to the athletic
association for the purchase of addi
Y. W. HOLDS CEREMONY
OF THE SACRED FLAME
Story By Laerolf is Read And Enacted
At Meeting Of The Associa
tion—Much Interest Shown.
WAS AN IMPRESSIVE CEREMONY
September 30.—The Y. W. C. A. held
a beautiful and impressive membership
meeting, using as the theme, "The Sac
red Flame," a story written by Laerolf.
The President of the Association,
Maie Hollady, read the story of "The
Sacred Flame" in which a proud Cru
sader set out for Jerusalem to obtain
the greatest treasure of that city. Af
ter the long and treacherous journey
to Jerusalem, as the penitents go quiet
ly but proudly to the tomb of Christ to
light their tapers from the Sacred
Flame, the haughty Crusader feels that
the greatest treasure of that city is
the Sacred Flame. Over the hard road
he carries his lighted taper home. As
he places the light on the altar of the
cathedral in Florence, the people who
knew the cruel man see the change in
his face and mien and cry "It is the
light. It is the light."
The meeting closed with each member
expressing her desire to follow the
gleam of the Sacred Flame by lighting
her candle from the old held by the
President. The Y. W. choir led by
Esther Reece, sang softly, "Follow the
Gleam" while the members marched
out on the campus carrying their
MISS LOUISE IS IN CAL.

about thirty-four years was Dean
of Women at Guilford, left the col
lege early in the summer for her
home in Indiana.. Since August she
has been visiting her aunt who lives
Miss Louise is known by every
one who lives in the vicinity of
Guilford and by a host of friends
scattered over not only North Caro
lina but other states. There is no
doubt but that she would be over
joyed to' hear from everyone.

GLEE CLUB BEGINS
FALL SEASON WORK
Prospects Are Much Brighter
Than Last Year With
Forty Men Out
MILLER TO DIRECT CLUB
Another great year is expected for
the Glee Club. The possibilities this
year are even greater than any prev
ious year, with Grady Miller, of Greens
boro, again as director, and Sam Keen
back with renewed enthusiasm to take
his place as student director.
At the first regular meeting, on Tues
day night, September 28, 35 men, in
cluding seven old ones, were out for re
hearsal. The director feels that the
parts will be balanced well. Although
no old men who sang first tenor are
back, several splendid voices have come
in to carry that part. It is hoped to
have at least twenty-four men in the
elub this year, this being about a third
more than last year.
The program this season will be dif
ferent from any before. It will be di
vided into two groups. The first group
will be entirely sacred songs, both new
and old familiar ones. This whole
group will be carried out in a scheme
that has never been worked here be
fore, which will add to the dignity and
expressiveness of the music. The sec
ond group of the program will consist
of both popular and classical songs
and choruses. In this group will also
appear the solo numbers, and probably
the orchestra will have a place in it.
NEED MENTAL BATH
Tom Sykes Gives Forceful Talk In
Chapel Taking the Subject,
SAYS CONTENTMENT IS A SIN
Kev. Tom Sykes gave a chapel talk
Wednesday morning on the subject of
"What must we do to be saved?" be
gan Mr. Sykes. "People go out to see
life but the majority see death."
The students' attention was called to
the fact that they are in college to
specialize in thinking. This four year
college career is left to the young peo
ple to prove to themselves that they
will be the leaders of the young people
of tomorrow. The speaker here em
phasized the fact that in order to raise
up a group of young people who can
avoid the blunders of the past, each in
dividual must take the proper spiritual
As a possible remedy for one of the
great sins which so many people com
mit, by being content with just getting
by, Mr. Sykes suggested a mental bath.

cussed with interest. A number of the

hard to the best of its ability, and
with due co-operation from the student
body this line of college life will prove
successful. It is hoped that a large
majority will look forward to the try
outs with exceeding interest.

New Firm Is Taking Interest In
Making the College Paper
a Better Publication
DOES IT LOOK BETTER?
The Guilfordian has at last been
placed in the hands of efficient printers.
McCulloch & Swain, the new firm that
has taken the contract for the year has
published the two best issues in the his
tory of the Guilfordian.
Mr. McCulloch, who is chiefly respon
sible for the splendid arrangement of
the paper has had charge of the setting
up of several college and high school
papers before going into business in
Greensboro. He is thoroughly familiar
with this work as well as being an ef
ficient linotype man.
Mr. Swain, is also up 011 publication
work. He has had years of experience
in newspaper work and is really an ex
pert. Besides these two who own the
plant there are two or three more ef
ficient workmen who have charge of all
the job work.
The Guilfordian wishes to take this
opportunity to express its appreciation
to Mr. McCulloch and Mr. Swain for
the personal interest they have taken
in the paper. It is impossible to catch
all the mistakes in every issue, but the
last two issues of the Guilfordian were
freer from typographical errors than
any previous issue.
Although McCulloch & Swain special
ize in high school and college publica
tions they also have splendid equip
ment, and do much job work. Their
plant is located 011 the corner of Trin
ity and Asheboro streets.
OLD SHIP OF ZION SPITS
FIRE AND GETS MUDDY
The College Ford, better known
as the "Old Ship of Zion" has led
a hard life at the hands of its vari
ous and unmerciful drivers. Wheth
er it was a deficiency on the part of
the omnibus, which is not probable
since Guilford College holds the
papers of ownership, or whether it
was carelessness on the part of the
paper carriers, will always remain a
mystery. But by careful detective
work it was discovered that a plen
tiful supply of mud was the only
thing that saved the "Old Ship"
from the terrible and cruel death
of burning at the stake.
RILEY SCOTT VISITS
Is Living In An Auto-House
Touring the Country Alone
Selling His Poems
POEMS WELL RECEIVED
Riley Scott, the wandering poet of
Kentucky, was enthusiastically received
in his chapel talk Thursday, September
Mr. Scott visited Guilford last sum
mer and already had friends among the
student body who welcomed him again.
He is an ardent Kentuckian and recited
several poems descriptive of the charm
of the various seasons in his native
state: "Springtime in Kentucky;" "Oc
tober in Kentucky;" "Thanksgiving in
Kentucky." The latter poem was sup
posed to be given by a "leetle" boy
just before Thanksgiving dinner, and
after dutifully giving thanks for his
divers blessings he ended, "And now
Grandpa, please fill my plate."
To show that though he loves Ken
tucky he is not oblivious to the beauty
and richness of other states, Mr. Scott
next gave a poem he had written about
"How the Great Lord Made the Old
North State," saying that North Caro
lina was made because:
" —When He had finished Paradise
He had left over a great big slice."
The whole poem was eminently satis
factory to every deep-dyed North Car
His other poems were "The History
Lesson," "Turkey Roast and Pumpkin
Pies," "Till He Took Up Golf," "It's
Strange How They Change When You
Touch Their Pocketbooks," a very love
ly little verse, "The End," which likened
life to an afternoon's walk, and showed
how truly nature has come to be one
of Mr. Scott's finest inspirations and
how largely his love of the out of door
figures in his life and poems. He next
read, "To Myself—That Same Old
Face," which Mr. Scott said he com
posed when he was shaving and real
ized that his own f.ice was the one thing
that never changed over night and was
the same wherever he happened to be.
Everyone took the poem personally, and
it has been the origin of many self
derogatory remarks at breakfast since.
The last of Mr. Scott's selections was
one which held a personal interest for
the student body, because he had writ
ten it especially for one of the young
ladies of the college this summer, when
she asked him for a poem.
After lunch there was an opportunity
to buy some of Mr. Scott's poems which
had been attractively printed 011 cards.
For several days Mr. Scott and his
auto-house were interesting figures on
Guilford's campus. For the last few
years he has lived entirely in the out
of doors, traveling from place to place
in the truck which lie has made com
fortable as a wheeled home, writing
poems inspired by the out of doors
around him and his various experiences.

MISS BERTHA YOCUM
GIVES AN EXCELLENT
PIANO RECITAL HERE
Head of the Music Department
Captivates Her Audience
The Audience Enjoys Highly Classical
Program Due to the Masterful
The piano concert, given by Miss
Bertha Yocum on Saturday evening,
October 2, in Memorial hall proved to
be a great success. A large audience
listened attentively to the artist.
Miss Yocum comes to Guilford from
Philadelphia, having taught a great
deal in that city, where she enjoys a
reputation of being a very successful
pianist and teacher. She is a pupil of
the late Madame Weinzkowski, of New
York, an exponent of the great mas
ter, Leschetizky and twice has she gone
to Vienna to see and play for the old
Miss Yocum's program was a heavy
one, every number of which was
played with the interpretation of a
true artist. The Beethoven Sonata,
commonly known as the Moonlight So
nata, should receive first place. The
contrast of the three movements was
brought out beautifully so that the au
dience felt the interpretation which
the composer wished to convey. Equally
well was her Chopin given. The Bal
lade in A flat was exceedingly well re
ceived, to which Miss Yocum was called
back by applause. The last number, a
Liszt Rhapsodie, was also well taken
by her audience.
The explanatory notes on the pro
gram added much to the interest and
appreciation of the different numbers.
The program follows:
1. Bach—Saint-Saens, Gavotte from
II Violin-Sonate; Beethoven —Sonata
quasi una Fantasia, op. 27, No. 2.
Adagio sostenuto, allegretto, presto
2. Schumann—Romance F sharp;
Brahms—Ballade G minor.
3. Chopin—Prelude D flat; Chopin—
Ballade op. 47.
5. Liszt —Rhapsodie Hongroise VI.
