Let's ALL Go To Salisbury Tomorrow Night VOLUME XXXVIII Founders Day Program Commences Today Guilford Choir Selected To Sing Christmas Music for Planetarium Technicians Come Here To Make Recordings For those who attend the Christ mas program at the Planetarium in Chapel Hill, there should be a particular interest in store this year. The Guilford A Cappella Choir has been invited to record the music to be used in connec tion with this program beginning November 27 and lasting through Christmas. Men from the More head Planetarium will come to this campus and make these re cordings next Friday. "The choir and Mr. Charles Un derwood, the director, are to be congratulated for this high honor bestowed on them and on the col lege," an administrative source said. According to reports, the Plane tarium directors looked "all over this state and surrounding ones, and picked the Guilford Choir from among all the others" to do the recordings. Nine Senior (lass Members Named To 'Who's Who' Nine members of the senior class at Guilford have been named to Who's Who in American Universi ties and Colleges. Those named are Ab Alexander, Samuel Baker, Jr., Julian Culton, Polly Edgerton, Joyce Fulk, Sally Haire, Lucy Leake, Henry Semm ler, and William Topping. Students whose names appear in the Who's Who list are elected by a vote of the students and faculty. Each group is presented with a list of the Senior Class and asked to vote for not more than five can didates. The students recently announced were elected last spring during the spring elections. Apple Grower Boosts World Government Samuel Levering, of Mt. Airy, chairman of the Peace Board of the Five Years Meeting of Friends, last Friday told the student assem bly that we can have peace if we can meet three conditions: brother hood and good will, self interest on the side of peace, and tolerable conditions for the people of the world." The first prerequisite to peace is disarmament, with a world FBI to see that it is effective, he said. Other essentials, he continued, are a U. N. able to disarm disputants and take them before a disinterest ed court for judgment. In order to do this, nations must be willing to disarm and submit to an inter national court and police force. "This police force must work against individuals." he said. "It must hit while the trouble is small." To send an army against an ag gressor nation after a war has start ed is self-defeating, Levering con tinued. This, he said, is the fundamental fault of the League of Nations and the U. N. They have no police; can not act until war has struck. This amounts to a collective security agreement, not government, the speaker contended. Levering believes the U. S. should advocate this before the U. N., and offer to give up a part of its sove reignty if others will do the same. Levering emphasized that he does not adovcate a complete delegation of sovereignty, but only in the re spect of the settling of disputes by individual armed might. This is only common sense, he said, since no one can win an atomic war. The Qui I for (Son i ' : 1 "to 1 Wmr HI WtA -Ok mMggu^i WIIHP STOP THE MUSIC!—Dr. Purdom, in sailor uniform above, decided he could do a better job on his solo without the piano. So, he did just that! Dr. Ljung is shown in lower right inset, with an expression of grim determination ... to hit the right notes? Other members of the faculty composed the chorus in the Parody on Gilbert and Sullivan's "H. M. S. Pinafore." Graham Say Today 'Kicks Suggests Communism Asks No Less Than Christ Nationally-known evangelist Bil ly Graham told an audience of students, faculty, and community people in Memorial Hall, Wednes day, October 31, that education to day is "kicking out God" in favor of the pursuit of intellectualism, without regard to God. Continuing his theme, he stated that not too many years ago, there was only one divorce to every 30 marriages, whereas last year there was one divorce for every four mar riages. He continued that this is evidence that the "basic and most important unit of any society, the family, is breaking. Therefore, the nation is." Graham then explained that Com munism is a "religion" that has the mind, body, and even the soul of young people. "Meanwhile, we have departed from our devotion," he said. "We have nothing. We're up against a people out to tear up God. They're out to throw Him completely out. . . . But we have something that they don't have," he continued; "the trouble is, we don't use it." The noted evangelist then sug gested that "Jesus demands no less than Communism: both demand control of the eyes, mind, ears, tongue, hands, our every intellec tual process." He concluded, "Jesus' side is going to be the winning side, sooner or later, and it must start with young people." President Milner introduced Rev. Mr. Graham, stating that his talk was arranged early in the fall. GUILFORD COLLEGE. N. C„ NOVEMBER 9, 1951 Education out God 7 $ Faculty Displays Great 'Talent' Last Saturday, Nov. 3, in Me morial Hall students and college friends saw the faculty display their talents in what turned out to be a very take-off on the students and student life. The event was spon sored by the Student Christian As sociation in order to raise money for the Campus Chest. It was under the direction of Mrs. Crownfield. The show consisted of five acts, the last and longest being a parody on songs from Gilbert and Sulli van's "Pinafore." Charles Underwood started the show off in grand style with his various selections on the bagpipes. The next act was entitled "A Piano Lesson," and it starred Carl Baumbach and Dorothy Ann Ware, both of the music department. Mr. Baumbach played the music pro fessor and Miss Ware did a wonder ful job as a gum-chewing, sloppy freshman. "Pete" Moore then gave a few dramatic speeches from "Macbeth" and further immortalized William Shakespeare's glorious name. "Section A Recites" starred Dr. Philip Furnas, Dr. Purdom, Miss Marlette, and E. Daryl Kent. Miss Marlette and Dean Kent seemed very realistic as the typical Guil ford students. Dr. Furnas asked the questions as the "innocent" Prof, and Dr. Purdom, in between his witty remarks, seemed to be getting more fun than anyone out of the act. , (Continued on Page Six) Students, Faculty and Board Members Participate; Brinton To Speak By Josh Crane The Founders Day program began today, Friday, Novem ber 9, at 11:10 a.m. with the Student Chapel. Two other ses sions have been scheduled for this afternoon and this evening.

The three speakers were to be representatives, one each, of the students, the faculty, and the Board of Trustees of the college. Julian Culton was the speaker for the students.

Correspondent Finds Germans Depressed About Future By UDO GENGENBACH Guilfordian European Correspondent WESTERN GERMANY, Nov. 7. —German problems are many in this crucial period, more than enough, I should say. I always think of the saying, "The situation is serious, but not hopeless." That was during the war. Today, many people are saying, "The situation is hopeless, but not serious"! But on the other hand, it would be actually preposterous to say that the condition is not serious. On the contrary, it is so serious that I am afraid sometimes that we shall have to go through the whole darned mess again. And we have had so much of it, most of us Germans! I said in an article last year that Germany is sick of war. I know now, more than ever, that I was right. All we want is peace to do our work, and nothing else. That is the opinion of most Germans, so you know now why so many say, "Without me!" when they start talk ing about remilitarization. That's one of the big problems, by the way, and it isn't an easy one as you can easily see. Another one is the reuniting of Eastern and Wes tern Germany. As you know, our country Is still divided in two parts Peeler Tells A bout Fantastic Weapons ...Page 4 NUMBER 2 especially because of his positions as president of the Student Affairs Board and of the Senior Class. Dr. Philips Furnas ably repre sented the faculty. He is the head of the Department of English at Guilford, and a very popular pro fessor here. The representative of the Trus tees was N. C. English. He is a prominent business man of Thom asville and the present Chairman of the Committee on Promotion and Development on the Board of Trus tees of Guilford College. The choir sang in the morning chapel and Mr. Baumbach played the organ. The session this afternoon wil) consist of a panel discussion of the ideas which were presented in the morning program. It will be held at 2:30 p.m. in the Library. The students will be represented on the panel by Julian Culton, Joyce Fulk and Henry Semmler, all prominent Seniors at Guilford. Dr. Furnas, Edward F. Burrows, who is Assistant Professor of His tory at Guilford, and Dr. Harvey A. Ljung, the moderator of the panel, will speak for the faculty. Mr. English will again represent the Trustees along with two other Board members. J. Floyd Moore will act as "Scribe" for the group. At 8:00 p.m. Dr. Howard H. Brin ton, Director of Studies at Pendle Hill, will give the second Annual Ward Lecture, "The Function of a Quaker College." Robert H. Frazier, who is chairman of the Board of Trustees of the college and Mayor of Greensboro will introduce Dr. Brinton. Isaac Harris, Executive Secretary of North Carolina Yearly Meeting, will lead in the devotions. Russell Branson, President of the Guilford Alumni Association, will also take part in the program. The choir will again sing. by the Iron Curtain, and the longer we have this separation, the longer the Communists have a chance to keep up their propaganda in East ern Germany. Of course, a ballot by the people would bring an over whelming victory in favor of reunit ing, but the leaders of the two di visions just can't agree on when and how to do it. This is not all the fault of the East German government, either. Adenauer, our chancellor, has a good deal to do with it too. His con ditions are just unacceptable and neither one will give way. Open Secret Of course, it is an open secret that Adenauer is more or less only a mouthpiece for McCloy, and the "American policy" made by him through orders from Washington. Sometimes I really think, "Why don't they leave us alone, —all of them"? But one the other hand there is still the menace of a Rus sian attack. What to do? I don't know what to think, and I don't wonder that many people gave up thinking, and are just living with out bothering about what's coming up tomorrow. It is too much for our brains to see a clear picture,—l am (Continued on Page Six)
