Punkin Britt, Pat Cal licutt, Missy Mills, Mary Davis Riddle, Jeannine Voss, and Suzan Williams join Kay Stabler, Laurie Russell, Carolyn Kirkman and Dar lene Brigance to do next year's screaming. 0 * 0 0 The Guilfordian wishes to con gratulate Coach John Lambeth for his splendid job as intramural su pervisor this college year. o o Well, the first page of this issue says that Dean Appenzeller is leav ing us for a while so that he can obtain his Doctorate. When he re turns, students, no doubt, will be perplexed as to the title by which he should be addressed, Dean or Doctor? If I know that fella cor rectly he'll probably prefer to be called Coach. o Schedule March 21—Hiram College (H) 8-9 22—Hiram College (H) 18-10 23—Catawba College (A) 2-5 25—Williams College (H) 12- 4 26—Williams College (H) 3-7 28—Elon College (H) 4-8 April 3—Oberlin College (H) 5-4 4—Oberlin College (H) 23-12 18—Pfeiffer College (A) 2-10 20—Appalachian (A) 10- 3 20—Appalachian (A) 11-8 22—Atlantic Christian (A) 13- 7 23—Catawba College (H) 6-11 25—High Point College (H) 21- 1 27—Pfeiffer College (H) 5-20 29—Newberry College (H) 8-4 30—Newberry College (H) 6-3 May I—Elon College (A) 3-10 6—Western Carolina (H) 4-0 7—Western Carolina (H) 4- 5 B—High Point College (A) 1- 9 Final Standings W.

BBk MBLM. Barry Cook starts swing . . . On May 6 the Guilford College baseball team entered a crucial two-game series with Western Carolina College. At stake was fourth place in the Carolinas Con ference and a berth in the Confer ence tournament at Lexington. That morning the first five teams in the standings looked like this: Pfeiffer 13 2 .867 Catawba 13 4 .765 1 Elon 10 6 .625 3K Guilford 6 6 .500 5% High Point 7 8 .467 6'A Monday, May 6 Coach Maynard chose Kendall ■ Buckner, a sophomore righthander from Siler City, to open the two game series against Western Caro lina. The Quakers jumped to a quick three-run lead in the first and John son was walked, Parker singled and Gann reached first on an error to load the bases. Cook then singled in two runs. Foltz and Hampton next walked to force in another run. This was all that was needed for as the game progressed it became apparent that Pitcher Buckner was to be the master. He scattered six hits and struck out nine batters to shut out the West Carolinians. It was the third time in a row that Buck has gone the distance. West Carolina 000 000 000 06 1 Guilford 301 000 OOx 48 3 Batteries: W. C.—HILLARD and Go forth. Guilford—BUCKNEß and Cook. Tuesday, May 7 Randy Parks got the nod from Coach Maynard to pitch in the final game of the Western Carolina se ries. A win here would have put the Quakers in the Conference Tournament. Danny Tharpe (of Western Car olina Basketball fame) added a single and a home run to three oth er Western hits to move them to a quick four-run lead in the first two innings. After this early outburst Lefty Parks settled down to pitch seven innings of rimless ball. Composite Batting Totals The following is the story of Guilford's batting for the 1963 season. The statistic headed RP is Runs Produced. It is the amount of runs scored by a player plus his runs batted in minus his home runs. The statistic is designed to show a player's total run production.

The Quakers were down one when they came to bat in the ninth. With two out Lee Johnson deliver ed a clutch single to tie the score and send the game into extra in nings. In the West Carolina tenth Will Parker singled Tharpe home with what soon proved to be the win ning run. Pitcher Parks had pitched well for the first nine innings but the Guilford batters could not help him. By the game's end they had left over fifteen runners on base. This game was the turning point in Guilford's tournament hopes. The loss necessitated a playoff with High Point for fourth place.

Wednesday, May 8 Kendall Buckner, with one day's lest, was selected to go against High Point at the Panthers' home field. From the outset it was apparent that this was not the Quakers' day. Pitcher Buckner, still recovering from the Monday game, was not his usual self as he gave up five runs. Guilford managed to score only once in the first inning when El wood Parker reached first on an error and Mickey Faulk singled him in. As a result High Point went to Lexington while Guilford took fifth place in the Carolinas Conference.

The purpose of this program is threefold. 1. It gives the coaches a chance to look over the freshman pros pects. As there are two J. V. games before the first varsity contest, Coach Stewart and his staff should be able to get a fairly good idea of which freshman can help us. 2. It gives the boys who normally would ride the b°nch a chance to play. It is hoped that this step 100 Yard Hurdles—l. Bob Baumgar ner (Eng.); 2. Simmonds (Cent.); 3. Mack ie (2nd S.); 4.
