THE QUAKER STAFF
IS ALREADY ACTIVE
PLANNING ITS BOOK
To Run Quaker Art Theme
Through Book, Making It
NO CONTRACTS SIGNED
Only One-Third of Subscriptions Need
ed Have Been Solicited In the
First Week's Drive
"The Quaker" is progressing as fast
as it is possible for a book to do so.
The entire staff with the exception of
an advertising manager and an athletic
editor has been chosen.
A Quaker theme for the annual has
been decided upon, and it is also hoped
a Quaker motif can be carried out in
advertisements. A book of from 150
to 300 pages, interesting, attractive,
and artistically arranged is the goal
the staff wishes to attain.
The class editors have in mind the
contents for each class section. The
material for these sections lias already
been begun. Photographic work, it is
hoped, will begin this week. An accom
plished artist, Mr. High Dixon of Pleas
ant Garden, N. C., and who did the
work for the 1924 annual, has kindly
consented to do the main section car
toons. Mr. Dixon has had much exper
ience along this line having studied art
in New York City for a year. He has
also done art work for other annuals.
Since this annual is to be a student
instead of a class publication, the staff
is expecting full pledged support from
each student toward making the publi
cation a success in every sense of the
word. So far this backing has been de
cidedly felt and appreciated.
A Quaker box will be established in
Memorial Hall where each student may
drop ideas of any sort to the staff. Sug
gestions of all kinds will gladly be ac
cepted, whether pro or con.
The engraver, printer, and photogra
pher will definitely be decided upon this
week and the book will begin to show
resemblance of actual form before
many more weeks pass.
PRES. BINFORD ASKS THE
STUDENTS TO ECONOMIZE
States That Only a Part of College Ex
penses Are Paid In the Stu
dent Tuition Fees
REMAINDER A GIFT OF OTHERS
"Economy" was the theme of a chapel
talk given by Dr. Raymond Binford,
"It is always a good idea for us to re
member what our predecessors have
done for the college," said Dr. Binford.
Each year the actual maintenance cost
of the college, not including the depre
ciation of buildings, is $150,000. The
amount of money spent 011 the average
student at Guilford far exceeds the
amount paid into the institution by
each individual. This fact alone in-
curs on every student an obligation of
economy and the careful and intelli
gent use of those things left to the col
lege from the past.
In conclusion President Binford said,
"Let us use the things given us to make
things more beautiful about us."
Perisho Addresses Teachers
Dr. Perisho left Friday morning for
Stokes county where he visited a num
ber of high schools and addressed the
Stokes County Teachers' Association.
This request made the fourth invitation
extended to Dr. Perisho from County
Teachers' Associations this fall.
WINS OVER QUAKER
Passes Account For Greater
Part of Scoring Done By the
MARSHALL ONLY SCORER
Makes Guilford's Only Touchdown On
Lynchburg's Fumble In Last Few
Minutes of Play
In a game of football November 6
that was devoid of spectacular plays
the Quakers went down to defeat by a
20-6 score before the Lynchburg eleven.
The Quakers got off to a rather slow
start, receiving the ball, but after three
attempts to gain were forced to punt.
Lynchburg started a series of passes
that carried them within the shadow
of the Quaker goal. They were held
for downs and Moon punted out of
danger. A second series of plays
brought the ball to the Guilford goal
drive and once again Moon punted out.
But a third time the ball was brought
down the field and a long pass to
Grant netted the Virginians their first
The second score came in the second
quarter when Moon, in attempting to
punt out of danger, had his punt
blocked by Riley, Lynchburg center,
vl'O afterwards fell on the ball for a
A series of passes and line bucks
gave Lynchburg their third touchdown.
The ball see-sawed back and forth
across the field with neither team ex-
hibiting very much drive until well up
in the third quarter when Guilford
seemed to come to life and played a
very good brand of football thereafter.
Although the Guilford backs failed
to gain consistently the ball was sev
eral times within striking distance of
the goal, but the necessary drive was
lacking to carry it across.
Guilford's only score came in the
last few minutes of play. With the
ball on the 40-yard line Beatty punted
to Greely 011 the 11-yard line. Mar
shall was waiting for the ball to come
down and when Greely momentarily
fumbled he picked up the ball from
under the arms of the Lynchburg
player and ran across the goal line.

GAME IN GATE CITY
Guilford Is to Play High Point
College In New Stadium
EXPECT A TIGHT GAME
Guilford plays her last home game
of the season with High Point college
on Armistice Day, November 11, in the
Greensboro War Memorial Stadium.
This game will test the strength of
both teams. They are priming them
selves for a fight to the finish. The
game will prove an important once
for both colleges from the fact that
they are about neck to neck in the
conference race. Neither school seems
to have much of an advantage over the
other as far as comparative scores are
concerned. The Quakers are ready to
battle for a final showdown and make
the day one to be remembered by all
the crowd turning out for the dedica
tion of Guilford County's War Memo
By virtue of its being an important
game for Guilford, the student body
will lie granted a half holiday Thurs
All the available material will be on
hand and Coaeh Doak has inspired
them with a clean, sportsmanlike spirit
that will go far toward making Thurs
day an ideal day. High Point has a
hard-hitting team that is to be reck
oned with in such a case as Thursday's
encounter will prove to be. It is very
fitting that these two teams dedicate
the stadium for Guilford county.
A large crowd is expected from both
High Point and Greensboro, as well as
from the surrounding territory.
LIFE IS A STRUGGLE,
SAYS PROFESSOR OTT
Chemistry Head Tells Students to Work
Harder Because Competition
Is Becoming Keener
For the first time this year Dr.
Charles Ott made a short talk in chapel
"This life," said he, "is one of com
petition." In spite of the way in which
culture and refinement are emphasized,
we find that life is really a struggle.
The sooner we realize we are up against
competition the sooner we are on our
way to success. There are many kinds
of competition. What we need to know
is the kind of competition that sur
rounds us. Many students who were
leaders in activities and grades in their
respective high schools come to college
with the expectations of doing the same
there, and then fail to accomplish what
they have expected to do. The reason
is that competition in college is keener
than it was in high school. In closing,
Dr. Ott advised the students, "If you
want to keep up in college, work
FALL PLAY CHOSEN
AND A LARGE CAST
"Seven Keys to Baldpate,"
Thrilling Mystery Drama, to
Be the Fall Presentation
RUTH FARLOW IN LEAD
December 11 Has Been Chosen As Date
For Performance—One Week Be
fore Faculty-Student Banquet
The fall play has always been and
will continue to be one of the main
features of the college entertainment.
The play now chosen will be of es
pecial interest to the students, faculty,
alumni and friends of the college, since
one of this type has not been staged
here in a number of years.
"Seven Keys to Baldpate," by George
M. Cohan, is the choice of the Dra
matic council for the fall play, which
will be given in behalf of the two
Christian organizations, the Y. W. C. A.
and Y. M. C. A. This play has been
on the screen in a great many of the
large cities, as well as on the stage, and
has won a world-wide reputation as
being the best mystery play ever writ
ten and produced.
The mystery centers around an inn
called Baldpate, which is located on
Baldpate mountain. This inn ordina
rily served as a prominent summer re
sort, however at this time it will be
used in the dead of winter as head
quarters for a well known novelist. He
arrives at the inn on a cold winter
night expecting to finish a long drawn
out mystery story in quiet solitude.
In fact, he has made a bet with the
owner of Baldpate Inn that the manu
script can be finished in 24 hours from
the time he arrives at the inn. The
minute he enters the inn door mystery
This accomplished novelist, William
McGee, is being played by Stanley
The keepers of Baldpate Inn, a
sturdy mountain couple, Mr. and Mrs.
Quimby, will be portrayed by Holt Fin
nison and Annie Wagoner.
Ruth Farlow is chosen as Mary Nor
ton, a newspaper reporter, who comes
to the inn to work.
Mrs. Rhodes, Miss Norton's chaperon,
has been accepted by Naomi Myrick.
A constant source of trouble at the
inn is Peters, the hermit, alias Ira

Definite work on the play will begin
this week. Much talent has been shown
in the tryouts, and the council feels
that the play will be one of the best
ever staged at Guilford.

cessfully coached previous plays, has
kindly consented to serve again.

OF GLEE CLUB IN A
Members of Glee Club Aided By
Ex-members In Concert At
RECITATIONS BY JOYCE
John Reynolds and Mary Taylor Are
Also On Program—Richardson-Holt
Charleston Act a Hit
A double quartet from the college
Glee Club gave a concert in the West
field high school Saturday night for the
benefit of the Friends church there.
Miss Mary Taylor, of Danbury, James
Joyce and John Reynolds, all former
students of Guilford College, assisted,
in the program by giving solo num
The program was not a heavy one-
It consisted of double quartets, quar
tets, instrumental and vocal solos and
readings. However impromptu it may
have been, it seemed to be very enjoy
able to those present.
Miss Taylor, a graduate of the
musical department of Guilford College,
played two piano solos. Although one
was an accompaniment for a demon
stration of the Charleston they were
both well received. Miss Taylor is a
very talented pianist and deserves the
most favorable criticism of both her
ability to accompany and to do solo
work. She also accompanied a group
of songs which Paul Reynolds sang.
Mr. Joyce, once a member of the col
lege Glee Club and a member of the
quartet that won a cup in the state con-
test two years ago, gave two groups of
readings. His interpretative reading
brought a great response from his hear
ers. He had to give encores each time-
One of the readings which he gave was
the well known "Essay On Ducks."
Mr. Reynolds, a member of the class
of '25, and also a graduate of the voice
department, sang two groups of songs..
Ilis songs were well taken, especially a
negro spiritual, "Swing Along.
All the above-mentioned may have
been the more important part of the
evening, but to hear any one of the
double quartet speak of the trip is to
hear a long discourse on the enormous
dinner set before them on arriving in
PERISHO TALKS ABOUT
THE COTTON SITUATION
Gives Statistics Showing How Cotton Is
Low Because of Over-Production of
Staple In the South
COTTON IS KING IN THE SOUTH
Dr. Elwood Perisho gave a chapel
talk, November 4, 011 the cotton situa
tion of 1926-27.
Dr. Perisho opened his talk by relat
ing the many discussions and rumors
throughout the country concerning the
effect of politics 011 the price of cot
ton. lie then showed by figures that
the question still remains "Is cotton
king or is corn king?" In 1926 the
production of cotton in the United
States was 16,000,000 bales and the pro
duction of corn 3,000,000,000 bushels.
The estimated values of these two pro
ducts are about equal.
In pointing out the real cause for the
present cotton situation Dr. Perisho
showed by statistics that of the 16,000,-
000 bales of cotton produced in 1925-
26, 14,000,000 bales were consumed.
