REV. L M'FARLAND IS
HOLDING REVIVAL AT
The Student Attendance Has
Been Steadily Growing Dur
ing the Past Week
PERMAR LEADS SINGING
Meetings Opened Last Sunday, the 3rd,
and Will Close the Last of ,
the Current Week.
Beginning Sunday morning, October
2, Rev. Lewis McFarland assisted by
Rev. John Permar has been holding a
series of meetings in New Garden
Friends Church throughout the week.
Mr. McFarland is Evangelistic Super
intendent of the North Carolina Yearly
Meeting of Friends and has been in the
evangelistic work for a number of
years. Mr. Permar, who is the director
of the choir, is pastor of the Graham
Meetings have been held twice a day.
There is a Bible contest going on in
connection with the meetings. This has
been most interesting and people have
responded well. One night 1,227 chap
ters of the Bible were reported as read
during that day. Mr. McFarland has
not been satisfied with the attendance
at the meetings and hopes that the
coming week will bring more people
out. He asked for the support of the
college students in his services. During
the past week the college students have
shown but very little interest in the
meeting, although toward the last of the
week more students attended the meet
ings. It is expected that during the
coming week more interest will be
taken. The Junior Choir and the chil
dren of the Junior Department have
been very loyal in their support of Mr.
McFarland, by their being present to
sing each night and their reports for
Bible reading have been especially fine.
BUSINESS CLASSES MAKE
A FIRST HAND RESEARCH
Professor P. Evans Coleman Takes His
Classes to Greensboro to Study
Organization of Trade.
Prof. P. Evans Coleman took his
classes in Business Administration on
their first research field trip this morn
ing. Business 11, General Business
Management class, visited Meyer's De
partment store to examine the type of
organization there and the mode fol
lowed in caring for a customer's mail
F. E. Harllee, general manager, gave
his personal attention to the study
group which includes, besides some
Greensboro students, one student from
Washington, D. C., several from differ
ent parts of the state, and also a Japan
ese student. The latter, Tamenori Hara,
is at Guilford college under unusual
circumstances, as his college expenses
are entirely furnished 1y a leading
Japanese manufacturer, Mr. Fugiti, a
member of the Japanese House of
Peers and a prominent figure in the
chamber of Commerce of Tokio.
Mr. Coleman believes that these re
search field trips are essential to an
effective course in Business Administra
tion. "The theory of business and the
actual coming into contact with the
business world are two different things,"
says Mr. Coleman, "and a successful
business man should have both." This
first reserch trip is only one of a num
ber that Prof. Coleman has planned for
the year. Several of the most promi
nent Greensboro concerns will be
visited from time to time
NEW REPORTERS NEEDED
FOR GUILFORDIAN BOARD
The Guilfordian is in need of
reporters. This is an excellent op
portunity for literary students to
prove their real ability.
Through this kind of work one
learns the art of applying the prin
ciples of newspaper writing, to en
large the vocabulary and to im
prove customary grammatical mis
takes and many other useful habits
one is prone to neglect.
All who are interested in this
work are especially urged to con
sider this appeal. It is an especial
appeal opened to the members of
the Freshman class. Joseph Cox,
Managing Editor, will give assign
ments at any time this week, to
those who will accept this challenge.

The interpretative dance of "The
Swan," which little Miss Nell Douglas

ceived and she was called for an encore.
She also gave several other dances.
Miss Kimrey sang two groups of
songs, Percy Grainger's "Would God
I were a Tender Apple Blossom" taking
best with her audience.
The aceompaning of Mrs. Moore at

Lewis McFarland Tells of Work Done
By Nathan Hunt in Founding
of Guilford College.
BUILT ON PRAYER AND FAITH
Rev. Lewis McFarland spoke in chapel
Wednesday morning, on the founding
of Guilford. He began his talk by giv
ing the principles upon which Guilford
Nathan Hunt became very much in
terested in a Christian institution where
men and women might go to receive an
education. He wrote for help to a
friend who was a sea captain. The
friend replied that he was going out 011
a trip and if it were successful he would
help. So Nathan Hunt and his friends
called a prayer meeting to pray for the
success of the fishing trip. The sea
captain reported the greatest catch he
had ever made, so he sent of his means
to help build Guilford. Thus, Guilford
was founded 011 "Prayer and Faith."
Mr. McFarland continued "We want
Christian students to come to this insti
tution and I want to help the students
to find God. No young people will be
better prepared to go out into the world
to carry 011 God's work than the stu
dents of Guilford."

A Costume Play Probably
Will Be Chosen
PRACTICE STARTS NOV. 1
Turner Moon is Elected Publicity and
Stage Manager—Miss Kopf is in
Charge of Costumes.
Work within the realms of the Dra
matic Council is progressing slowly but
surely. Plays of every description are
being read in hopes that an ideal one
to be used for the Fall performance
will soon appear.
A number of new plays are expected
in this week. These are ones of re
nown and ones that have been sug
gested by persons of much experience
along this line of work.
It is in the mind of the Council to
produce a play this Fall that will be
unlike the type of those produced in
the past year or so. A costume play
is being seriously considered. How
ever, there are many other varieties to
At the last meeting, Mr. Turner
Moon was elected publicity manager,
Miss Minnie Kopf in charge of the
scenery and costumes and Turner Moon,
working with the committee, will act

PROF. DAVIS READS
Tells of Experience He Had As
Outcome of Soph-Rat
INCIDENT AT HAVERFORD
The students had the privilege, Tues
day morning in chapel, of hearing an
extract from the autobiography of Prof.
U. Franklin Davis.
While Prof. Davis and his wife were
attending summer institute at Bryn
Mawr several years ago he met one of
his old acquaintances whom he had
known at Haverford, and who was then
living near Bryn Mawr. This gentle
man was very nice and cordial to Prof.
Davis to the extent of causing him con
siderable embarrassment, because at
Haverford Prof. Davis had known him
only distantly, owing to the fact that
they were not classmates and had no
especial bonds of friendship.
The friend proposed a morning ride,
and, the proposition being accepted, a
definite morning was decided upon. At
the set date, Mr. and Mrs. Davis were
called for by the friend and his wife,
and they departed in a handsome car
riage drawn by handsome horses. It
was a lovely morning and the ride along
the beautiful country roads with con
genial companions was greatly enjoyed,
but, strange to say, no mention was
made in their conversation of old
Haverfordian days. After having rid
den a couple of hours they returned to
their abodes. When Prof. Davis and his
wife had lighted, his friend asked,
"Well, have I repaid thee?"

Davidson Defeats Guilford
By Early Overhead Attack
TO A LITTLE QUAKERESS
I met a little Quaker girl
Who was exceeding fair;
Her cheeks were rose, her teeth
And fine gold was her hair.
Altho a Baptist I have been,
My ways I'll try to mend
And lead a Quaker's life, serene
If she will be my Friend!
QUAKERS PLAY A.C.C.
AT WILSON ON SAT.
Team to Depart For Wilson On
Friday Afternoon and Will
Spend Night There
EXPECT A TIGHT GAME
The Guilford Quakers are priming
themselves for the A.C.C.—Guilford
game at Wilson this coming Saturday.
Since the Davidson game, Guilford is
perfecting her aerial attack to be used
if the chance is afforded. Coach Doak
is very optimistic over the prospect. He
will use all the available men to meet
the attack of Atlantic and give his men
a victory. He has high hopes of per
fecting a harmonious substitute back
field that will work with precision along
with his regular backs if it is necessary
Atlantic Christian college has the
reputation of being a tricky aggrega
tion. They whipped Blackstone, Va.,
Military College last Saturday 50-0
using a wide variety of passes and
fakes. This aggregation will provide a
worthy opponent for the Quakers.
Doaß's men have the fight and the
ability to beat the "Little Christians"
and they say "We'll do it." Such spirit
can be upheld by the absolute backing
of the school. The boys deserve all the
backing they can get.
The team is planning to leave on Fri
day afternoon for Wilson and spend the
night there. This will give Doak's men
a chance to have all their reserve
strength at hand when the whistle blows.
THE CHURCH NEEDS A NEW
SPIRIT, SAYS MILO HINKLE
"Ghandi Was Given a New Heart by
God and is Preaching Non-Violence
to His People in India."
SAYS LOVE WILL STOP ALL WARS
"Mahomet Ghandi has dared to set
for the whole world a standard that
even the Christian churches have not
had the courage to establish," said
Reverend Milo S. Hinkle in his lecture
at the chapel hour.
His theme was the need for a new
spirit, the spirit of Jesus Christ, in the
world. "I suppose that the greatest
thing a man ever did was to have such
a personality as to stamp on the whole
generation a spirit, an ideal of life. I
am convinced that what the world needs
is a new idealism, a new motive. We
have said that over and over, but we
must do it." He continued to say that
that new spirit of which the world had
need was the spirit of altruism. The
speaker then said, "I am quite con
vinced that the church of Jesus Christ
needs a new heart and a new spirit."

BEATTY GUILFORD STAR
In Second and Fourth Quarters Quakers
Play Brilliant Football, While
White and Hoyle Star.
The Guilford Quakers invaded the
lair of the Davidson Wildcats, coming
out with several scratches and the little
end of the score.
Davidson, the crippled, presented a
whirlwind attack in the opening quarter,
passes, the Wildcats' fullback, Nesbit,
scoring the first after heavy line plung
ing and skirting the ends. Guilford
lacked the necessary punch to stop the
march of the Davidson backs till the
The second quarter was a different
story, however, Kimrey going in for
Neese, who started at full back, and
Moon for Tew for Ebert. Guilford then
opened up 011 the aerial attack and
marched down the field for four first
downs but lost the ball before being
able to score. The second and fourth
quarters were hard fought by both
teams. White and Beatty figured large
ly in Guilford's attack, carrying the ball
frequently and to good effect.
Davidson scored her third counter by
the drop kick route from the twenty
five yard line in the third quarter and
then carried the ball over for a touch
down for the fourth and final score of
the game. A safety was chalked up
against Guilford in the third that net
ted Davidson two points.
The game was very interesting to
watch. The brilliant playing of David
son's fullback and starring of Hoyle,
Beatty, and White for Guilford kept the
game full of thrills.
Guilford showed her fight by making
seven first downs and passing for thirty
yards. Her only penalty came from the
fact that White was in motion as one
play started. A good record for old
