IS CHAPEL SPEAKER
On November 9, the students and
faculty of Guilford College were ad
dressed in chapel by Richard W.
Thrush, who is assistant director of
first aid and life saving in the Amer
ican National Red Cross.
Dr. Shields, who about twenty
years ago saw the dire necessity for
the minei's in Pennsylvania to know
the fundamentals of medical treat
ment, was the pioneer of first aid.
Since this humble beginning, this
phase of work has come under the
leadership of the Red Cross and has
grown to such immensity that thou
sands of people are awarded certifi
cates for the completion of a course
in first aid every year.
Sixteen years ago the American
Red Cross asked to take up the proj
ect of life saving. All over the Unit
ed States clubs have been formed un
der the leadership of Red Cross work
ers to decrease the number of lives
lost by drowning. Due to the educa
tion of the youth of America in the
principles of life saving, the number
of lives lost in water have not in
creased with the ever increasing pop

had several concerns: the water sup

way in which the furniture was being
utilized, and the discovery of electric

curling irons in Wade Mackie's room.
Mr. Isley personified seemed to be
having some trouble about getting a
maximum amount of work out of the
boys on the campus but after some
consideration Dr. Binford decided he
was getting along fine.

Wilbert Braxton, outstanding mem
ber of the senior class, is nominated
for Rhodes Sholarship.
Prominent In Scholarship And
MAJOR IN PHYSICS DEPT
Wilbert Braxton has been selected
by the faculty of Guilford College as
a nominee for the Rhodes scholar
ship for study at Oxford. In order to
be eligible a candidate must be an
unmarried male citizen of the United
States and by October the first must
have passed his nineteenth birthday
and not have passed his twenty-fifth.
Also, at this time he must have com
pleted at least his sophomore year at
some degree-granting university or
college of the United States of Amer
ical. Cecil Rhodes, founder of the
scholarship, desires that the candi
dates be selected on the basis of dis
tinction in character, personality and
in intellect. Physical vigor is also
an essential qualification for a Rhodes
scholar. On December the fifth stu
dent representatives from North Car
olina will meet at Durham, and rep
resentatives will be chosen.
Mr. Braxton is net only outstand
ing scholastieally but he also holds
the positions of editor of the Quaker
and president of the Y. M. C. A. In
his junior year he won the William
Overman scholarship which is giv
en to the junior making the greatest
contribution to the college and he was
chief marshal. He is also an out
standing tennis player.
How about getting a real organized
pep squad for the Elon game? The
old students and Alumni will be there
to see what the "younger generation"
is doing in the way of supporting our
teams so lets get together and show
them that the old School Spirit is
better than ever.
What is the estimation of your
own worth ? Did you ever stop to
consider how many things may be
grouped under honor?
Someone has forgotten that the
Honor System is alive on our
campus and persists in taking re
serve books from the library
without checking them out—books,
even those which have already
been signed for by someone else.
May this be a gentle reminder
to the thoughtless person or per
sons who have been defiling their
honor. Our books are limited, and
you are not the only person who
wants access to them. Just be con
siderate of the other fellow.

Class To Meet Every Week For
This year we have something new
on our campus—a new organization.
It is the Freshman Cabinet of the
Y. W. C. A. Ethel Swaim has care
fully selected and organized those
freshmen girls who are interested in
the "Y" and who seem to be adjusting
themselves to the new environment.
There is reason to believe that the
eight girls chosen are the cream of
the Freshman class, as far as the
girls are concerned. They are: Pris
cilla White, Gertrude Mears, John
nie White, Elva Leonard, Orpha New
lin, Rachel Perkins, Gertrude McCul
lum, and Mamie Rose McGinnis.
The purpose of the Freshman Cab
inet is the continuance of religious
experience and training for "Y" lead
ership. The groups, which is really
the cradle of the Y. W., will meet
each Tuesday evening and study the
foundation and organization of the
Next year they will have a differ
ent name—probably the Sophomore
Cabinet. Anyway it will still be the
group that is learning about the "Y."
How's this for a prophecy? That
in '35 they will compose the senior
members Y. W. C. A. Cabinet.

A very interesting lecture illus
trated with beautifully colored slides
was given at Memorial Hall, Novem

for twenty-two years was a Christian
worker in Tokio, Japan,
Japan is regarded as a beautiful
garden which has been cultivated
carefully for many years. The Japan
ese have an innate love of nature—a
yearning to have the natural scenic
beauty always around them.
Their gardens are places of unus
ual beauty. The first ones were made
by the priests in connection with the
temples. Water is one of the essent
ials of the garden. In many of them
there are beautiful lakes and
streams. The Japanese love stones
and they place them in very natural
positions in their gardens. Other
characteristics of these elaborately
planned gardens are lanterns, usually
of stone, bridges in unique styles,
trees and artificial mountains for
background, and the all-important tea
houses. These tea houses are usually
nine feet square and are built in a
quiet spot of the garden—solitude be
The flowers occupy an important
place in the natural beauty of Japan.
The lotus which grows in low, muddy
places is to the Japanese a symbol of
purity. The iris there grows in the
water instead of on land. The peonies
are gorgeous flowers which are quite
carefully cultivated, but Japan is not
ed for its wisteria, which grows as
much as eighteen inches a day, and
The cherry blossom time in Japan

Japan has long been a cultured na
tion. Nine hundred and thirty years
ago a Japanese lady wrote a book on
Japanese court life and today it is
known as one of the twelve greatest
books in the world.
Mr. Coleman said that Japan has
the finest gardens in the world and
he hoped that he had inspired us with
the pictures so much that some day
we would go to see them for our
Speaks On Japan
The chapel speaker for Friday, No
vember 13, was Mrs. Horace Coleman.
She was for twenty-two years a
worker in Christian work in Tokio,
Japan, and while there collected a
number of beautiful pictures.
Some cf these pictures were shown
to the student body. The scenes were
of Japan in its own natural beauty.
The intricate process of breeding the
silk worms in order to get the silk
was made quite interesting by Mrs.
Coleman. She said that the founda
tion of the economic wealth of Japan
was the silk.
She was dressed in a brilliant col
ored kimona—the real dress of a
Japanese bride. These kimonas, are
worn in Japan just as the veil is
worn here by the bride. On this kim
ona in stencil and embroidery was ev
ergreen, bamboo, and plums. The
bamboo is symbolic of faithfulness,
because no matter how much it is
bent over it always comes back
straight again, while the plum is
symbolic of the sweet and pure Jap
