troops on Korean soil, once they
had withdrawn. Taft continued

Taft came to North Carolina to

has just been released.

No Concrete Conclusion
Reached Last Night
A group of interested alumni, known as the Guilford
Foundation, was still going strong late last night, and the
consensus was that Guilford will have football next year. No
definite commitments were made, but something entirely new
for Guilford seemed to be in the air. The idea of direct par
ticipation by the College itself, to a limited—very limited—

speeches weren't prepared addresses, but mere extempo

cooperation between the College itself, the Foundation, and
the Board of Trustees in working out a system of athletic
support which would not be a "hand out" type subsidy, bnt
