The unfortunate accident which claimed the life of Jesse Butler
before the holiday season was deeply felt by the entire student
body and faculty at Guilford College.
Jesse did not take his work here at Guilford lightly. Instead,
he had a very serious attitude about the things surrounding him,
and his interest in a commercial venture was in keeping with
his character. On the field and in the classroom he did his best.
In all his many trips around the Guilford College area he had
a pleasant, word and smile for those he met.
Although his stay at Guilford was brief, he will long be remem
bered by his many friends as a true Guilfordian.
Guilford: 113 Years
In the eyes of English professors, the term "standing on the
threshold of a new year" might be considered trite. Perhaps
it is, but the expression is most certainly indicative of a new era
for Guilford College as it begins its 110 th year of continuous
Last week appropriate celebrations were in order as the College
observed its 113 th Charter Day. Guilford received its charter
a few years prior to the actual opening of the school, for in those
early days of the 19th century money was needed to make Nathan
Hunt's dream of a progressive school a reality. Now. over a
hundred years have passed and each succeeding years seems to
add to Guilford's growing prestige and reputation.
People throughout the country, not only here in North Caro
lina, are beginhing to hear about Guilford College. They tell
you that they don't know too much about the school, perhaps
don't even know where it is, but they have heard tributes paid
over and over again as to the fine scholastic reputation which
Guilford has built for itself through hard work and perseverance.
Soon the million dollar endowment fund will also be a reality,
and then Guilford will rank academically with any large college
in the country. That dream isn't very distant, and it is almost
a certainty that the freshmen at least will graduate with that
honor. W. L. K.
In the Right Direction
A boy from Shaw University debated capital punishment with
one from A. & T.. a W. C. representative pointed out a weakness
in a bill introduced by State College but members of the
North Carolina Student Legislature, held last December, acted
unanimously in their treatment of one phase of their session.
For the first time in ten years of active existence, both colored
and white colleges were invited to attend. Division among dele
gates was due to disagreement in issues, not color 1 lines, and the
natural relationship with the group was far above expectation.
At. the close of the session, a bill stating that the meeting had
proven to those present that all races can and must effectively
and sensibly work together, was introduced by Black Mountain
and approved by the entire gathering. It was only a small step,
but education involving a problem of such emotional content
must necessarilv be slow.
One lesser reason for satisfaction over the result on this par
ticular point is that the previous Student Legislature devoted
almost their entire meeting to heated controversy on the abolish
ment of Jim Crow laws. Because of this, the usual sponsors of
the group did not wish to handle it this year. This Assembly
was the first to he planned by the North Carolina Student Legis
lative Council, composed of students and facility members from
various colleges in North Carolina who remained interested in
the Student Legislative movement.
A remark concerning the conference made by the Associated
Press, that the delegation passed in rapid succession bills over
which their elders had been disputing for years, may have been
true. The meeting was limited to two days and the intention was
to cover a variety of matters. However, let it be hoped that
their elders did take notice of the unselfconscious, sane attitude
shown in promoting racial equality. S. J. W.

Going back to pre-Xams, let's
refer to the Vets' Club Xmas Dance.
Before, you always got a heavy dose
of propaganda about a dance but
heard no more of it once it was
tossed. This time the Vets' Club
wishes to thank one and all for
having made the dauce a smashing
affair. To prove it's success they
point out the fact that even after
the intermission, couples and stags
all returned to the gym and it seem
ed that 11:45 came all too soon.
The Vets' Club realized a profit
from this dance, which will be used
for purchasing the scoreboard and
for financing in part the next dance.
Among the parties tossed during
vacation, most rousing was the Lewis
affair, l'aul Jernigau could 110 doubt

becomes strictly history for Jack.

Reviews and Previews
By Benny Brown
Jennifer Jones in "Duel in the
Sun," Linda Darnell in "My Darling
Clementine," and Veronica Lake in
"Ramrod" all tend to prove on cur
rent screens that when it's spring
time in the Rockies, the rustle of
petticoats can be a lot more danger
ous than the rustling of cattle. Un
like westerns, "Duel in the Sun" is
a woman's story. It tells of I'ear!

a down-at-the-heel Creole gentleman
and his Squaw wife. In "My Dar
ling Clementine," Linda Darnell uti

Gentlemen, gather 'round, for
with the H()th Congress now con
vened, it appears that there will
be another deluge of legislation
benefiting the ex-GI. Last year there,
were at least 85 laws acted upon
that granted or amended previous
benefits for World War II veterans.
Major items will be introduced
during this Congressional session
include many bills that will be spon
sored by organizations such as the
American Legion, the VFW. and the
American Veterans Committee.
These bills wil include provisions
for extended housing priorities, cash
payments on terminal leave bonds,
increased subsistence for veterans
in college, (ah, that one really hits
home doesn't it'; and perhaps even
that "dream" bonus.
As a matter of fact, Representa
tive Landis (R.-Ind.). has started
the bonus bill rolling mid introduced
a measure that calls far .$4 a day for
stateside service and $5 for service
overseas. Take it easy on the pencil
and paper dogface, no need to get
excited for it will probably never get
through the way it stands now. How
ever. there's the possibility that
Landis purposely set this high figure
with the idea that it would probably
be cut a few dollars. Still, a little
would be better than none at all.
Immediate cashing of terminal
leave bonds seems the most likely of
the new proopsals to be passed. Some
$2,T00,000,(XX) worth of terminal
leave bonds were given to enlisted
men by the last Congress to make up
for the fact that officers got leaves
with pay even after discharged. At
present the enlisted men have to
hang on to their bonds for at least
five years, even though the bonds
draw 2>/_. percent interest.
Tiie Veterans of Foreign Wars is
renewing their drive advocating a
$1,500 tax exemption for veterans
similar to the one granted to them
while they were in the service. There
have lien no explicit details of the
VFW plan announced as yet, but the
organizations chief alignment will he

As for local vet's news, Mr. Regi

visit to Guilford the last |>art of this
month. As representative of the Vet

Office in Winston-Sal em he will be

tell you when to expect Mr. Turner.
What with acting as co-sponsors
of the Barter Theater presentation
of "Arms and the Man," it appears
as though the Veterans' Club is
climbing higher and higher towards
being Guilford's number one organi
zation. The club as a whole should

Most musicians or "listeners"
agree that Benny Goodman is the
greatest of all clarinetists, past and
present. It is generally agreed that
no one can touch him. Hut the baff
ling thing is that the band is almost
exactly the same as it was ten years
ago. Not that the personnel hasn't
changed, for at one time or another
he's had many of the country's best
musicians with him (Teddy Wilson,
■tunny Rerigan. Marry James, Gene
Krupa, Zigg.v Elman, Mel Powell,
Lionel Hampton, and Jess Stacy, to
mention a few). However, the in
strumentation has not changed
much, and the musical ideas are
for the most part those of a decade
ago. Not that the music they make
isn't good, for it is still better than
nine-tenths of what one hears, but
from the man who was clearly tin
leader in swing in the 19S0's, it is
disappointing. The musicians play
ing his music are good, and the
reeds still phrase beautifully, while
the rhythm section is fair, but the
brass section is anemic when com
pared with most of today's "modern"
groups having twice as many men.
The Goodman band is not "just
another band," but it is not out
standing. as it should and could be.
