Program Arranged For Guilford's Homecoming Day
Annual Elon - Guilford Football
Game And Faculty Play Features
Whole Campus To Have "Open
House" For Alumni And
I)R. HOBBS WILL SPEAK
November 21 has been set aside
as Homecoming Day at Guilford Col
lege. This is a day when all old stu
dents are urged to return and renew
acquaintances and view the changes
that they may keep in touch with
their alma mater. Dr. Binford has
sent out letters giving a cordial invi
tation to all old students to be pres
ent. In order that everyone may get
as much as possible out of their
short stay at Guilford a program of
activities for the day has been ar
The main event of the day is the
Guilford-Elon football game and be
fore supper which is at 6:30, open
house will be held all over the col
lege. At this time the old students
may visit their former rooms, favor
ite haunts, and are urged to inspect
the new features on the campus,
especially the library, the post office,
the Dean's office, the new psycholog
cal laboratory, Men's Center, the
Music Building, and even see the new
stoker in the central heating plant.
A program of greetings is plan
ned for 7:30 o'clock. Dean Milner
will act as toastmaster with Max
Noah as leader of group singing. Dr.
L. L. Hobbs will speak on "Yester
day;" "Today" will be featured by
Dr. Raymond Binford; and Robert
Frazier will prophecy "Tomorrow."
This program will end with the Alma
Mater led by Mr. Noah. The faculty
play will be given at 8:30 p. m. in
Memorial Hall, and from all evidence
it will be well worth attending. It
has been rumored that J. Franklin
Davis and Raymond Binford will"
render solos during the intermission.
Selects Fall Play
"Darick Clausen," Witli Dutch
Humor And Truth
DOUBLE CAST WORKING
Some plays are interesting because
of their humor, while others draw
large crowds because of some truth
they bring out. The Dramatic Coun
cil on November the twenty-eighth
presents "Darick Clausen," a play
which combines both of these quali
ties. "Darick Clausen," a play whose
setting is in a little Dutch settle
ment in the Catskills, though mod
ern, calls to our minds a picture of
colonial Dutch men and women. The
people in this sequestered little vil
lage take extreme pride in their
hand-made brick —Darick Clausen be
ing an ideal representative of the
genius of the community. Grace
Harding, a modern college girl type,
tries to persuade Darick to accept
modern methods of making brick by
machinery. This shows the sturdy
Dutch stand for the product of a soul
rather than the product of a machine.
Which counts for more? "Darick
Clausen" in three stirring acts gives
Many students have shown an in
terest in trying out for the play. The
students have not been chosen yet,
but a double cast is working on the

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C.,NOVEMBER 4, 1931
IS SPONSORED BY THE
LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES
President Hoover And Others
To Speak November 14
9:00 to 9:30 P. M.
LISTEN IN AT WPTF
Two years ago a Liberal Arts
Movement was started for the pur
pose of creating greater interest in
the Liberal Arts Colleges of this
country. The movement is striving
to put before the people the aims
and possibilities of individual col
leges in their quest for a more even
distribution of endowments.
On Saturday night, November 14,
between nine and nine-thirty, the
Liberal Arts Colleges are sponsoring
a national broadcast from coast to
coast, gulf to border. It is going to
be one of the largest broadcasts ever
given over the air in the betterment
of education. The outstanding leader
of our country will be one of the
many speakers on this gigantic hook
up. President Hoover is heartily in
favor of the plan and will give a
brief, but to the point, address on
Liberal Arts Colleges. Dr. Robert
Kelly, president of the Association of
American Liberal Arts Colleges; Dr.
Finley, editor of the New York
Times, and many other distinguish
ed leaders will be heard.
It is the plan of the Association
to have local broadcasts on the sub
ject in each district. The individual
colleges will be heard over the air.
Guilford is sponsoring a program to
be heard from station WBIG, Greens
boro, Saturday night, November 14,
nine to nine-thirty. The national
broadcast will be heard over station
WPTF, Raleigh, at the same time.

Mr. Zenas L. Martin
Dies In Baltimore
Mr. Zenas L. Martin, aged seventy
six, father of Mrs. Samuel Haworth,
died in a hospital in Baltimore on

Evolution Of Music Building
From ' Y'And Men's Dor
The music building has a very in
teresting history and has played
many parts in the early life of the
college. It was erected about 1895
or '97 under the supervision of Wal
ter Mendenhall who had been a stu
dent here. The "Y" offices were on
the first floor of the building. The
plan had been to put a gymnasium on
the second floor, but the floor was
found to be too weak, and, as dorm
space for men was needed, this
floor was made available for rooms.
Alva Lindley and Eugene Coltrane
first roomed in the Y Building in the
front room. Not long after this in
the days of Dudley Carroll the Y
Building was known as the center
of the Brer Rabbit club, an inter
esting organization, further informa
tion upon which can be obtained by
applying to our President.

the world is challenging college stu

problems of the world.
The world today is confronting an
other war, and the whole political
and economic life is facing ruin. This
war will be much more disastrous
than the last one. If we can hold off
the impending war for ten more
years, we can hold it off for twenty,
then forty and finally it will be pos
sible to outlaw war forever.
We are living in a world of modern
science with old concepts and
thoughts. Even today we cling to the
caveman type of security. Countries

no longer needed for a dormitory,
so the Men's Literary Society rooms
were on the second floor. The next
attempt toward athletic fame for the
old building came when the officials
tried to put dressing rooms for the
teams there. The boys, for some rea

At last the structure has come into
its own as the Music Building, and
it is likely to continue in this capac

seme kind soul realizes a need for a
new building and supplies the "where

begun to decorate the walls of its
abode by hanging a picture bought
by the Euphonians. Prospects look
bright for the old "Y" building with
so many happy voices to cheer it.
