Volume XXXX Faculty - Student Game Tonight In its never-ending quest for money, the Junior Class will pre sent the annual basketball tilt be tween the College faculty and the student body Friday night. Some of the more athletic members of the faculty will line up against a selected group of the campus "greats" in what promises to be a close contest. Among those who will be on the floor for the faculty are such well known personalities as : "Bevo" Hendricks (with a waistline like that we wish he didn't get in free), "Pete" Moore, Dean Ljung, "Dead eye" Purdom (complete with his set shot), Dean Kent, and even ben baker. On the other bench for the students is talent such has never before been amassed on one team. Led by their captain, coach, and playing manager, James Leake, the student team consists of other such greats as: Ed Finch (there's an other one who ought to have to pay for admittance), Chase Las siter, and Szatkowski (if we can find a suit small enough for him). The Student-Faculty Basketball game will replace the Junior Class minstrel show originally planned, and will be given on the same night, Friday, March 19, at 7:30 p.m. According to the class presi dent and the director, the minstrel show was cancelled due to lack of co-operation on the part of the Juniors. Admission to this gala attrac tion will be according to the size of your waist; a penny for every inch. The Junior Class will use the cost of those extra calories to fi nance the annual Junior-Senior Banquet which comes up in April. Your attendance and support will be a big step in the undertaking of this venture. Remember your class, too, either has or will attempt the acquisition of the long green for such a purpose sometime, and you, too, will need assistance. Especi ally is this true of the Seniors, they have more at stake. In addition to the basketball game itself, there will be other stellar attractions. The Juniors will present a cakewalk, a program by the Ben Baker Trio (don't know, but this sounds right fabulous) and refreshments from beginning to end. Make your plans to be in the Gym for the big event. Just watch ing Charlie Hendricks out on the court is worth the price of admis sion. Class of 1928 Donates Funds to Frame Paintings If you admire good paintings you'll soon have a chance to hang a famous reproduction in your room. Guilford College is enlarg ing its cultural resources to include a collection of framed pictures so that students will be able to check out paintings as well as books and records. The pictures will be taken from the fine collection of famous art reproductions formerly of the Car negie Collection given to the col lege some time ago. Until this time they have not been used but now they will be put into circulation on a loan-out basis for the students. Funds for the frames of these paintings have been donated by the class of 1928. The first seventeen pictures will be ready for display by April 10th and may be checked out after April 16th, for two weeks.

C., MARCH 19, 1954 Honor Board to be Elected by Students At a joint meeting of the Men's and Women's Student Govern ments a new plan was discussed to have the members of the Honor Board elected by the student body. The main arguments for the new system proposed was that it would tie the Honor Board closer to the students and cut out the present feeling of suspicion that the stu dents have against the Honor Board. The main argument against the direct vote of the students is that it was felt by some that the Honor Board was too important to have membership on it determined by popular election. Under the former system the Honor Board members were elect ed by the Women's and Men's Stu dent Governments, but, according to the motion passed, it was plan ned that new members be nomi nated by the Honor Board and petitions taken out by all others wishing to run with the election being held in the spring beginning next year. The new members elected by the joint group for this year in clude Betty Busiek, Ketchel Adams and Maggie White. The Honor Board is considering changes in its set-up due to re cent interest created in a chapel program when several important suggestions were brought up and discussed. Senior Class Honors Dr. and Mrs. Milner At Dinner Party Last night the Senior class hon ored Dr. and Mrs. Clyde A. Milner at a dinner party held at Guilford Dairy Clubhouse. The Milners were feted for their long period of service at Guilford College. 1954 marks Dr. Milner's 20th year as President of the College.
