Catawba took advantages of breaks 011 a soft field and scored in the first few minutes of play. Guilford kicked only ten yards 011 the initial kick off. Catawba punted to Guilford who fumbled the ball, 011 their own twenty yard line, with Cataw ba recovering. A series of passes and Catawba had scored the only marker of the game. After this they did not threaten. Guilford got in scoring distance sev eral times, but seemed to lack the punch to put it over. Two of Guilford's star backs were hurt at the beginning of the game, which hindered the Quaker chances considerably. Parrish, plunging half back, was hurt, on the first play, and Captain Robertson played in a semi conscious state from the first of the game.

THE sz> GUILFORDIAN COLLEGE MARSHALS ELECTED FOR YEAR Faculty Selects Hoyle, Moore, Rozell, Paul and Reece in a Recent Meeting CRANFORD HOYLE CHIEF At a faculty meeting held some time ago the following members of the Jun ior elass were selected to serve as mar shals for the school term of 1027-28: Cranford Hoyle, chief; Stanley Moore, Edwin Rozell, Josephine Paul, and Es ther Reece are to serve with Mr. Hoyle. The selection of Mr. Hoyle by the faculty for chief marshal is considered a recognition of his all-round ability. In addition to ranking well among the students and in scholarship, he has also been active in athletics since com ing to Guilford two years ago. He has starred in the football line for the past two seasons and has proven one of Guilford's most outstanding players up to date. The selection of Mr. Hoyle as chief marshal is well received by the students at large. (Continued 011 Page Two) PROF. NOAH PLAYS A GROUP OF CELLO SOLOS First Time in Seven Years That Music Director Has Had Training in Other Instruments Than Piano If Mr. Noah continues much longer in presenting his ability in music lines, he may eventually prove to be a whole orchestra within himself. The student body was quite pleasantly entertained Thursday morning in chapel with a group of cello solos. This is the first time in several years that the music director has had train ing in other instruments than piano, so naturally it is a treat to the college to have this variation of chapel entertain ment from time to time. Mr. Noah played three numbers: "Pil grim's Chorus" and "Evening Star" both from the opera "Tannhauser" by Wagner, and "Elegie" by Massenet. Criminal Lawyers Change Their Stroke From Minor to Major Key on Thirty-Seventh Count Like a thunder bolt out of a clear sky, the campus woke up last Friday morning to find itself in the mist of a "Rat" mutiny. It seems that the day broke clear and cool, and so some of the Fresh men conceived the brilliant idea of ap pearing- on the' campus in knickers and golf hose. Of course, this in itself was perfectly all right, but had they consulted criminal lawyers before ap pearing in this immodist attire, they might have discovered that this was as dangerous a policy as sleeping with rattlesnakes. However, this particular fine morning found Rats Williams, Cude, Wray, Hawortli, and Routh parading the campus in rather vivid knickers. The Seniors and Juniors were shocked and horrified at the show. The Sophomores were dumbfounded, and it was late af ternoon before they could breath nor mally. President Van der Voort of the Sophomore class was the first to recover, and he immediatly notified emmergency Judge Cannon that his ser vices would be in demand that night. The court room was crowded when the court was called, and there was lit tle else going on. Special Prosecuting attorney, Francis, was especially groomed for the session, and not the GUILFOKD COLLEGE, N. C., OCTOBER 26, 1927 GUILFORD COLLEGE LIBRARY The Guilford College Li I miry is now undergoing extensive repairs in (en nhiince its architectural beauty and prolong its usefulness for many years. MRS. TUBBS OF BATES IS VISITOR ON COMPUS Speaks to Girls Friday Night and to Student Body Sunday Night at Christian Endeavor IS ACTIVE IN RED CROSS WORK Mrs. Tubbs of Lewiston, Maine, has been visiting Guilford college for the last few days. She has been 011 the Bates college faculty for a number of years. Bates is noted for its International debates and is one of the first co-educa tional colleges to be established in Maine. Mrs. Andrews, our present dean of women, served as Physical Director at Bates for four years. Mrs. Tubbs has been very active in Red Cross, Welfare Work, and particu larly the Mother-Daughter Clubs. Friday night after the society meet ings she spoke to all the girls. Her title was, "The Girl Beautiful." Her talk was very interesting as well as in (Continued on Page Four) slightest trace of mercy could be found iu his steel grey eyes. The docket was quickly clear of the minor cases, and Rat Wray was put 011 trial for his life. In spite of the scarcity of defense attorneys, a warm legal battle ensued, and it was not long before the judge was laborously, and perhaps painfully, counting out 37. Williams, Cude, Haworth, and Routh followed, and the scene was a wild mass of confused figures to the tune of 17, 31, 10, etc. The Sophomores worked stead ily and industriously in relays and thus they at last completed the work by placing the responsibility of rolling the girls tennis courts on the unfortunate culprits. Guilfordians returning from Greens boro and elsewhere during the wee small hours of the morning were rather surprised to see figures moving around the Girls' tennis courts by the light of flash lights. On closer observation they found that it was just "Sonnie," with the help of Cude and Routh, labor iously and without haste, dragging the Dean of Men across the courts on the scraper. It has been rumored that the New Garden Girls are hoping that the time will come in the near future when it will be possible to have their courts fixed up. LOVING CUP AWAITING THE TENNIS CHAMPION The Championship Now Rests Among: It. Griffin, R. Van der Voort, and Worth Mackie SEVENTEEN STUDENTS TAKE PART Much interest has been manifested in the boys' tennis tournament this fall. The tournament was planned and spon sored by Professor Pancoast, who has generously offered a beautiful silver cup to the winner of the tournament. In all, seventeen men have participated in the contest. The players were paired off and preliminary matches played un til all but eight of the players were eliminated. The skilful eight were: Ourrie Spivey, Byron Haworth, Glen Boose, Worth Mackie, Richard Cox, Robert Griffin, Charles Coble, and Rob ert Van der Voort. The above-named men have been playing a "round robin" during the past three clays and some very exciting and skilful tennis matches have-been played between these men. At present the championship rests among Robert Griffin, Robert Van der Voort, and Worth Mackie. These matches will be played the first of the week, and the champion will receive the cup. PROF. FURNAS GIVES A DIALOGUE OF BOOKS Books Ask Dramatist to Carry an Ap peal to Student Body That They Read More Library Books Professor Furnas, in his chapel talk Tuesday morning, told of the Jewish father who, having placed his small son on top of a step-ladder told him to jump. The boy, being rather dubious, asked, "Papa, will you catch me?" Upon being reassured, he jumped, but papa did not catch him. "Papa, you didn't catch me," lie said accusingly, as he picked himself up. And papa re plied, "Yes, I wanted to teach you that you mustn't ever trust anybody, not even your own papa." That is the way it is with books. In college we are ex pected to read extensively, but we must not believe everything we read. Professor Furnas told how he had been reading a ponderous volume on Relativity in the Library. It was late in the afternoon and the library was deserted. Suddenly he heard a chorus of tiny voices clamoring around him. The library books were setting forth their merits. In one corner Encyclo pedia Britannica, Nelson's Encyclopedia (Continued 011 Page Two) They Make This Possible THE QUAKER STAFF GETS EARLY START ON 1927-28 ANNUAL Fances Osborne and Leslie Mur phy Relate Plans in Mon day Chapel CONTRACT ALREADY LET The Art Theme to Be Characteristic Representations of Quaker History. Comic Sections to Be Added Fiances Osborne, who spoke in chapel Monday morning stated that the staff of the Quaker is busy working on the dummy for the 1927-28 Annual. The contract for printing the Quaker was let to the Queen City-Printing Com pany, Charlotte, N. C., and the Char lotte Engraving Company is doing the engraving. The Flynt Photographic Company has been at work the past week making individual pictures and campus scenes for the annual. A great improvement this year over the an nual of last year, will be the fea ture section. The feature section will be composed of two parts, a comic and a photographic section. The art theme this year will be characteristic of that history of the Quakers as portrayed in the life of William Penn. The plan for the division pages is to have pictures such as, "Penn's Treaty with the In dians." "Penn's First View of Phila delphia from the Ship Welcome," "Penn's Conversation With King James," and other interesting pictures. The outstanding feature is the fact that the characteristic pictures sponsored by the various organizations will be taken in Quaker costume. Leslie Murphy, the managing editor, also gave a short talk asking for the co-operation of the students in making this year's annual the best Guilford has ever published. PROFESSOR M'CRACKEN AND CLASS TAKE TRIP Visit New Greensboro Bank and Trust Company to Study Entire System of Good Banking Principles THE TRIP PROVES WORTH WHILE Prof. Duane McCraeken's classes in Money and Currency, and Business Finance had a most interesting and worthwhile trip last Thursday. These classes were adjourned at the college for the afternoon in order that they might visit the new Greensboro Bank and Trust Company for study of bank ing. Before the trip the students were asked to write out the questions which they would like to know about bank ing. A complete list of these questions were taken by Professor McCracken in order that the students might learn the answers. The classes were introduced by Mr. Moore, the cashier, to two young em ployes, Foster and Travis, who con ducted the students through the bank. The bank employes were very courte ous and interested in explaining the entire system of banking. All ques tions were answered in the most cour- teous and explanatory manner. The questions asked were on the general nature of banking. Some of the principles of good banking were ex plained to the students. The head of the department and the classes both feel that it was a worthwhile trip. NUMBER 5
