Elon Christians Whomp Quaker Gridmen / Entire Elon Backfield Takes Advantage Of Quaker Errors for 33-0 Landslide Greensboro High School Stadium, November 24.—The Guilford College Quakers dropped a heartbreaker to the Elon Christians today, 33-0. The goose egg hung high over 3,000 football fans in the new Greensboro High School Stadium. The Quakers never seemed to be able to get started. Line-play and backfield strength wasn't up to the standard set by Eddie Teague's team in the Appalaeh-* ian game. Fumbles, fumbles, and yards lost rushing told the story of the traditional Turkey Day classic. The Christians got off to an early lead in the ball game when Kill Barger took Wally Maultsby's kick on Guilford's 45, reversed the field from left to right and scored for Elon. Elon's second touchdown in the first quarter came when Yar borough's lateral to Hill Teague was fumbled and recovered behind the Guilford goal line by Joe Erickson. Breedon blocked Reid's try for the extra point. The score: 12-0. Elon's third score was a piiss play, I'ete Marshburn to Hill John son for 17 yards and a TI). Reid made bis first extra poim and the Maroon and Gold led, 10-0. Late in the first half, Marshburn cut over his own right tackle for another Elon touchdown. Reid's kick was good. The final tally was scored in the third quarter by Frank Tingley who took a handoff from R. K. Gray son and skirted left end for 16 yards. Reid's point was good and the score wtas 33-0. In keeping Guilford scoreless in this final game, Elon took fhe North State Conference defensive honors. They held Guilford to a 16-yard rushing mark by throwing the Quak er backs for a total of 82 yards lost rushing. Special recognition goes to "Chief" Spencer and Bowman Small. Spen cer fought ferociously and cut off dangerous running plays on sev eral occasions. "Bo," who has seen little action this season, broke into the lineup and played bang-up ball throughout the last half. Seniors Tnttle Sherrill, Reginald Roberts. Bill McCormick. and Wal lace Maultsby played their last game for Guilford. HOW IT HAPPENED (Aral HOW!)

Plays for Vets' Dante Annual Thanksgiving Dance To Be Staged Tomorrow Night Reg Marshall To Play For Veterans' Event The return of an event which has come to be one of the most popular annual social events at Guilford College—namely, the Thanksgiving dance—is slated for tomorrow night at the gym. The Veterans' Club, one of the most active organizations on cam pus in recent years, has announced final plans for the event, which in cludes music by "Reg" Marshall and the Wiley Riser orchestra from Winston-Salem. In using terminology which dance fans can easily understand, the band features a bop pianist and a drummer who has something like ten arms—or at least observers be lieve he has. With his style of music the "bounce," and "bop" vari ety, Marshall and the Riser orches tra are very popular among college groups. Tickets are ill the hands of Vet eran Club members, and plans are for a large crowd. Bowman Small and A. D. Garrison, in announcing final arrangements, stated that flow ers are ruled out for the occasion. Tickets are SI.OO "stag" and $1.50 "drag." Hours are from Bto 11:30. The Veterans' Club is now dis cussing plans for possible continu ance of the organization and its work after the inevitable declining of veteran enrollment. Dr. Marshall Warns Audience of Plight 111 - . Roy Iv. Marshall, director of Morehead Planetarium, pleased the Founders Day audience at Guilford with a discussion on stars and atoms. Dr. Marshall's talk centered about the scientific developments of the past twenty'years, mentioning the giant Hale telescope as one great development, and the atom bomb as another. He observed that these two significant inventions were, odd ly enough, headed in the opposite directions. His train of thought followed re ligious lines as he emphasized the ftiet that man is a part of the uni verse as well as the stars; and that they are composed of the same chem ical elements. "Maybe some day man will realize this," said Dr. Mar shall, as he stated that unless man woke up to that truth he will cause his own destruction. Tfy Quiffor^ion VOLUME XXXVI GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C„ NOVEMBER 25, 1949 Chapel, Girls' Dormitory To Be Added As Development Program Progresses Concerned Group Helps Organize 'Dialectic Senate' A nucleus of political-conscious students at Guilford College, with the assistance of one of their pro fessors, have formed a new organi zation, "The Dialectic Senate," on the campus. The new organization stemmed out of the observation of these students that colleges today are not adequately encouraging col lective informal and formal discus sions on problems of the day; either through curricnlar or extra-curricu lar activities. Another conviction of the group which helped lead to the forming of the senate was that parliamentary law and procedure would not be learned adequately through textbooks without parallel practical experience. Dr. Algie I. Newlin, professor of history and political science, advised and assisted the group in planning for the organization of the senate, and at the first formal meeting of the group he was appointed critic. John Clark, senior from Griffin, was one of the student leaders in the group who first felt the need of such an organization and has been at work on the project for some time. Clark has represented Guilford College at the North Caro lina Student Legislature for two (Continued on Pago Two) Minority Groups Are Powerful The Student Christian Associa tion wtas privileged to have as its speaker for Vespers in the Hut on Sunday evening, November 13. I)r. Hershel Folger, pastor of Ashe boro Street Friends Meeting and friend of the college. Dr. Folger's talk was preceded by games and refreshments around an open fire, and the singing of hymns created an atmosphere quite fitting for liis talk on "Minorities." Dr. Folger stated that we are a minority group just because we are a member of the white race, because we are attending college, and narrowing it still further, lie cause we are members of the S.C.A. Minority groups are always power ful. and many people consider it a privilege to bo among the few. He challenged his listeners to be among the smaller group if it means standing by one's convictions, and tilling needs of others wher ever we find them. Iteing a member of the student body of a church-related college means following some religions tra ditions of that college. The Stu dent Christian Association sought to understand Jesus' teachings on "Religious Tradition-Doctrine, the Sabbath" on Sunday evening, No vember 20, with Hardy Carroll as moderator and Hiram Hilty as re source leader. A lively discussion ensued. Compliment? Members of the audience at the Dramatic Council's staging of "The Happiest Years" wlm didn't know the personalities of the actors and actresses were discussing fhe fine job of acting done in the roles of the "visi tors from Georgia," played by "Butch" Hayworth and Rob Wall. A student who overheard the conversation said. "Gosh, they weren't acting at all. They behave that way all the time!" Christmas Holidays! Annual Christmas holidays begin this year on Saturday, December 17, at 1 p.m. The holidays end on Tuesday, January 3, at 8:30 p.m. Aral on January 13, at 9 a.m. (oh, happy day!), first semes ter exams begin. Speaker Observes That Aid to Others May Later Save Us Miss Sonia Grodka, representa tive of the World Student Service i Fund, spoke to tile student body about conditions in overseas insti tutions last Friday. Miss Grodka pointed out that there are students all over the world who still need onr help— for the things they cannot create with their own two hands, for the medicines that do not exisit in their own countries, for books containing the knowledge from which they were cut off for so long, for the foods and vitamins that will help them tight tuberculosis—the heir of war and hunger. Miss Grodka summed the situa tion up something like this: "They still need us, but you—all of us— need them too. Need them to insure a common ground, a common hope, a common striving in every nation. Knowledge is the most international of commodities—but also the most perishable. You can keep it alive today—i't may help to keep you alive tomorrow." Xote was made of the way Guil ford students have failed to realize their needs. Only $175 of the $550 student goal has l>een raised. Of the total SI,OOO student-faculty goal, the World Student Service Fund would receive approximately $250. 'Witches' Pilch Parfy; Talent Show Success During the month of October the Women's Student Government As sociation put asi#> their more intel lectual thoughts to give attention to a Halloween party for the girls and a talent show. The Halloween party was given in Founders pnrlor one Monday eve ning wi'th Hobbs, Founders and the Day Hops in attendance. To get the guests in a Halloween mood, Sally Goodrich, Char Flanders and Ell.v Oorneilsnn came running down the stairs dressed in black, with brooms swinging in the air and screnms re sounding everywhere. They present ed a satire from one score of the three witches from Macbeth. Refreshments, singing and danc ing followed. The W. S. O. Talent Show was presented Wednesday, November !). in Mem Hall. Carolyn Lee was mas :ev of ceremonies. Several specialty acts were done, plus a skit based on one of the faculty meetings, with the girls imitating the various pro fessors. Hettie Brockman's repre sentation of Airs. Milner was the highlight of the program. To the more serious side, tire drill rules have been set up in both dor mitories. Plans have been made for tin announced drill this week, followed by several surprise drills. The W. S. G. Council has request ed the young women to refrain from thumbing for rides at the corner— just to stand and appear eager in stead if making motions to the driv ers. Also the women are not to wear gym soils to the corner stores. M MBER 4 The Founders Day dedication of the new science building addition signified only a beginning of the improvements in the college plant that are slated for Guilford College. After the dedication of the modern $150,000 structure, which was fin nnced by some 2,500 contributors, college officials disclosed that a cam paign is now in progress for com pletion of the campus development program. It was stated that plans are for completion of the campaign by January 1. The original campaign was begun in 1045, and a goal of $761,000 was set for completion of five major projects. Of that amount, to be raised by January 1, $147,839 is lacking. Of the five projects, the new King Ilall addition is now finished, and the library is in the construc tion stage. Tlie other three proj ects nre a new girls' dormitory, n new chapel and religious education building, and renovation of Duke Memorial Hall. The new chapel, termed by Dr. Milner for some time as a pressing need, is to contain an auditorium, a better equipped stage for plays, and will afford better selections of speaking events and programs of musical nature for students and the community, as well as further the religious education of Guilford stu dents. Since the auditorium or chapel is expected to add to the life of the community, as well as colege personnel, a special campaign inviting community participation in the campaign has been set up. The other two projects which are to be given immediate attention on completion of the campaign are much needed facilities also. The new girls' dormitory, a dream for many years, will be erected between the Hut and Mary liobb.s Hall with the building line 011 'the north cor ner of the gymnasium and Foun ders Hall. The renovation of Memo rial Hall will consist of converting the present auditorium to classroom and faculty offices. The ceiling wilt be lowered, and of course, the floor will be leveled. Dr. Milner, college president, in discussing plans for the final stages >f the campaign, said that the na ture of the campaign was one that encouraged small gifts. Special Gift prospects are being invited to con tribute, but special emphasis is be ing placed on giving opportunities to present and post-graduate stu dents, and friends of the college, to participate: since this group is the greatest benefactor of the im provements. Dr. Milner observed that some of the most impressive gifts in the campaign so far were small ones, and added that so far gifts have ranged from fifty cents to fifty dollars—both types of which have helped to bring the campaign to its present level. Pacifism Holds Greater Hopes Than Other Means Following n short business meet ing if the I. K. C. on Thursday eve ning, Mr. Feagins led n discussion on the topic, "Can We Apply Paci fism on an International Basis?" Seventeen persons were present and participation was active. Mr. Feagins described die means of pacifism as contrasted to the non-pacific means. He placed em phasis on the means such as love, non-violence, the essential place of suffering, and the place of police in positive international pacific policy. An essential conclusion slated was that for every problem of the> pacifist, 'there is a corresponding' problem in any other approach to internationalism, nd that in the total analysis, pacifism holds great er hope than present means used in international relations.
