They penetrated as far as the kitclien to the tune of dish-washing and wait ing tables, and received instruction in the ways of a Co-op Dorm. Edward Boring was the originator of this idea, and says: "This idea struck me during exam week of last semester; since that time I have been thinking about it. I talked with Miss Gons, Miss Ohcuault, and Mrs. Milner, receiving their ap proval and consent." He also says that converts were easily converted. Whether better meals or social con tacts were the cause of their conver sion has not as yet been ascertained; however, they seem blissful in their new-found toil. As for the girls who live in the dorm, they seem well pleased with the masculine trend of events. Words of Wisdom Mouths o By JAMES PARKER Hanging from gayncss to clif?nifiecl silence, the platforms of the important office candidates in Guilford's spring elections, set for March 21, are being made puldie today. There were thoughtful pauses, some brow-knitting, and just a bit of in tense concentration before all the right words were written by all the candidates. And without attempting to choose—much less catch our breath— we give you the official "press state ments" on your favorites for the races. Here they arc: President Men's Student Government Tyree Gilliam: "I favor a student government that will work in close cooperation with the students without too much interference from the out side. If elected I will not show any STAFFORD, CORNETTE RECEIVE SCHOLARSHIPS Honor Roll Stars to Attend Haverford College During 1938-39; Both Are Prominent at Guilford.

The 1 fact that only eight scholarships are usually awarded annually by the insti-; tution makes it more significant that Ouilford students were successful in ob ! tabling two. — Student Poll Will Be Taken A survey of student opinion 011 j international policies of the United j States will be taken Wednesday morn- ' ing, March 23, at chapel time.

Kay lUible looked down from her hill of experi ence and remarked that Spain had nothing on us as far as revolution S was concerned. Dick Hendricks says that cutting carrots for Bea Rohr is a pleasure. You could surmise by the way Thornton fell to the "silver and glass" that he was quite at home in more ways than one. Mike Caffey, our up-and-coming Sherwood Eddy, certain ly looks agile behind an apron. The illustrious and scholarly Cornettc proves without a doubt that there is nothing to this "hash-slinging racket." This experiment is to last for only three days, after which spring will still be here in its normal way; we trust receive the same expression. "And we did have fun" while it lasted.

The trips have included Tennessee and j other states west and northwest and, j several times into the North. Since the i beginning of the choir in the fall of 1!)2!>, under the direction of Prof. Max i Noah, former head of the Guilford Col- I lege department of music, the choir has j established a reputation wide in scope I i.ud extensive in influence. One of the : northern trips Included a visit to the White llouse, where the choir sang for I President Herbert Hoover. Appear j unci's in small as well as larger cities, j and programs over local and national I radio luiok-ups have made possible a wide hearing of the choir. A distin tive characteristic of the organization is the fact that its reper toire invariably consists of the best church music to lie selected from all period* and types of compositions. This ye-ir the program includes Latin. Rus sian, Knglisb. American and Negro se lections of recognized merit. Composers include I'alestrina, Haili, Schumann, Arkliangelsky, Rachmaninoff. Dvorak. Christiansen. Cain, Dett and Dr. Wei* himself. Some of the favorites easily recognized are "From Heaven Above." "Now Thank We All Our God," "Day of Judgment," "Praise to the Lord," "llospodee I'otneeloogy," "Coin' Home," "O Holy Lord." and "Go Down Moses."

I). Beittel, dean of the college. A year-long "Introduction to the Social Sciences'* will be required of freshmen in place of two of the semester courses at present sched uled for upperclassmen. The revision, which will take effect next year, will also permit History 3-4 as an alternate for the Political Science 23-24 required of all juniors at present. The framework of required social science courses which will face the incoming class of *42 next September is as follows: for freshmen, Intro duction to the Social Sciences (two semesters); for sophomores, Psychol ogy 1 and Religion 3; for juniors, Political Science 23-24 or History 3-4; and for seniors. Philosophy 103- 101. Those courses now included in the curriculum which appear in that listing will probably be renumbered. MRS. CLYDE A. MILNER SPEAKS ON MYSTICISM Will Discuss "Psychology of Mysticism" at Symposium in the Library Sunday Afternoon. LAST IN SERIES OF LECTURES Mrs. Clyde A. Milner will speak at the fourth of the series of symposiums which are being held at the college li brary each Sunday afternoon. Mrs. Milner will discuss "The Psychology of Mysticism" to end the group of lectures begun by Dr. Milner, who spoke on "Mysticism in the Society of Friends." The other lectures in the series were "Madame Guyon," by Dr. Russell Pope; "Mysticism in the Catholic Church," by Mr. R. D. Doug las. and "Mysticism in English Poetry" by Miss Dorothy Lloyd Gilbert. There has been much interest shown in this dissertation by the faculty, which was the "brain child" of Dr. Russell Pope. A new outreach in the stimulation of interest of friends of Guilford and its students in the valu able collections of Quaker books which are in the library and in the intel lectual contact between friends of the college with the Guilford faculty and students was attempted.
