PAUL BLANSHARD IS
SPEAKER AND VISITOR
Internationally Known Social
TRAVELED IN EUROPE
Paul Blanshard, an authority on la
bor problems, gave a talk in Chris
tian Endeavor on November the
twenty-second and on Monday chapel.
"Racketeering—High and Low" was
Mr. Blanshard's subject in Christian
Endeavor. He told of the evolution
of the Gangster—how he begins by
some misdemeanor, comes from a "re
form" school with a set of vices, and
perhaps as a last ordeal the gansters
give him a murder to do. Racketeer
ing or gambling goes by the name of
speculation in more dignified busi
nesses. "Speculation, however, is suc
cessful gambling; gambling is un
successful speculation. "Racketeer
ing," says he, "will go on until men
put Christianity into order."
He spoke in chapel on "Industrial
Democracy and the Machine Age."
There are two big evils in our indus
trial system. The first one is the in

bottom do not get earned money. The
second evil is that of distribution of

proved to be just as satisfying as a
Thanksgiving dinner should be, with
its turkey, oyster dressing, irish po
tatoes, peas, celery, graham rolls,
butter, fruit and mince meat pie.
At two forty-five an interesting
scoreless hockey game was played be
tween the faculty and the girls. Mr.
Newlin's costume proved interesting.
When he figures out its significance
he is going to tell us. There follow
ed a soccer game between Cox and
Archdale Halls, the game resulting
in a tie.
From seven until nine, the boys
spent visiting the girls' dormitories.
The boys expressed their approval of
the girls' rooms in a slightly "sissy"
voice and usually said, "You all have
a mighty nice room."
The concluding event on the pro
gram was coffee at Founders at nine

Native Of Germany Presents
Three Of His Own

On November 14, Guilford College
had the pleasure of hearing several
piano selections by Dr. Friedman,
who is now a resident of Greensboro.
Dr. Friedmann is a native of Ger
many and came to this country thirty
years ago. Having been born in a
country which abounds in composers,
he was able to develop his wonderful
talent under many masters of music.
Before the World War he was direc

When the United States entered the
World War, he gave up his work in

Dr. Friedmann played three of his
own compositions which were enthu
siastically received. "Sunrise" inter

rays of dawn when the whole, land
scape is covered with a purple haze.
The second selection gave the ever
changing moods of a famous Swiss
painter, and in the last number were
pictures which the individual must
interpret for himself. The barren
lands of Russia, the peasant people
j of Germany, the whole pulsating life
of all Europe, or the dances of Af
rican natives—all these, and more,
were felt in the fantastic composition.
Sunday School A ids
Wednesday night, November 25,
Mrs. Haworth's Sunday School class
cf Freshman girls met in the room
of Nell Dodson at Founders Hall. The
main topic of the evening was the
condition of the children in the min
ing districts. It was decided that the
class would meet Saturday afternoon
at New Garden with Rena and Vina
Bivens, and make scrap books for the
children. Refreshments consisting of
coffee, sandwiches, cakes and mints
Friday night, November 27, Mrs.
Perisho's Sunday School Class held
a class meeting at Mrs. Whites'.
There was an extemporaneous pro
gram with Louise Ward featured as a
fortune-teller, prophecying what each
one in the class would be doing in
five years. Interesting and entertain
ing games were also played. Officers
were elected, and they were as fol

president, Orpha Newlin; secretary,
Minnie Thomas; chairman of pro

enthusiastically assisting in making
the banquet possible. And, to make
the evening a successful one, the sup
port of every student is needed.
Mr. Shepard will act as master of
ceremonies. There are to be toasts to
our "fightin' Quakers," and maybe
there will be a bashful response or
two, and about twenty-five letters
have been written to old players in
and near this vicinity, inviting them
to return to share the fellowship of
the evening. Indications are that the
good old days will be brought back
and the stars of yesterday will min
gle with the stars of today.
G.C. Faculty Gives
Two One Act Plays
Miss Jinnette, Dr. Ljung, And
Mrs. Binford Play Lead
G C FACULTY—2
The final entertainment for home- j
coming week was the presentation of
" 'Op 0' My Thumb" and "Buying
Culture" by ;\the Guilfiord College
Club. Approximately three hundred
people were present to enjoy the tal
ent of our faculty and the music of
the Guilford College orchestra under
the leadership of Max Noah.
The characterization of Amanda
by Miss Isabella Jinette and that of
Orvis by Dr. Ljung were considered
the most outstanding features of
" 'Op O' My Thumb" throughout the
entire play. Amanda tried to build
the ideal family around her, always
hoping that her idealism would some
day be realism. Many complications
entered her fabrication, but she was
so persevering that she bravely clung
to the last threads of hope.
"Buying Culture" was centered
around a loving German mother,
Mrs. Binford, who wished her daugh
ter, Miss Bruce, to enjoy the finer
things of life. The audience was kept
in a continuous uproar by the mother
whose German ideas never were able
to be replaced by American ones. As
all good romances end, the daughter
accepts the hand of th_e poor suitor,
portrayed by Marshall Barney rather
than a well-to-do Bostonian.

Allen J. White Elected Presi
dent—Will Meet Once
A short time ago Thomas Q. Har
riscn visited our campus speaking in

On Friday evening, November 27, a
group met in Philomathean Hall and
organized what is to be known as
the International Relations Club of
Guilford College. The Club dedicated
itself to the purpose of promoting
World Peace. The following officers
were elected: President, Allen J.
White; secretary, Julia Plummer;
and treasurer, Brodie Money. Sever
al committees are to be worked out
