Famed singer Josh White, jr. will give
Concert in Dana Tuesday night at 8
Tuesday, November 14, the Student
Union will present Josh White, Jr. in
concert in Dana at 8:00 p.m.
Josh, Jr. has been performing for nine
teen years, first as a club performer and
then as a concert artist. He has played
the Bitter End in New York, the Trou
badour in Los Angeles, and the Playboy
Club in Chicago. He has also appeared in
clubs and in concert throughout Europe
and has just returned from a tour of Eng
land and Scandinavia.
He was placed as the eleventh most
popular campus attraction in his field by
the 1965 Billboard Poll of Colleges and
Universities, and was selected by six
regional conferences of the Association
of College Unions International to be
their Convention Entertainment.
In recent years his style has increasing
ly differed from his father's though he
readily gives credit to his father for the
training he received.
Josh, Jr. is a performer with a long
background of experience and success.
He is coming to continue this tradition at
Weekly Convocations to be continued
Is there a chance that required at
tendance to convocations, long a part of
Guilford, may be stopped? At least for
the near future, tbe answer is no. But
nevertheless, students today are spending
much less time in the convocations than
In the early days of the college, ac
cording to Convocation Committee Chair
man C. C. Shotts, students were required
to attend a chapel every day. By 1964
this had been reduced to 3 times a week.
Only last spring was the attendance re
quirement cut to once a week.
At that time, the policy of getting
speakers who had something to do with
education was started. In an attempt to
find out what students wanted changed
about the assemblies, the opinions of
400 people were secured. The general
concensus among them was that more
variety in subjects was needed, and that
more contemporary issues should be di
scussed. This is being complied with.
The ticket system of checking at
tendance, which replaced assigning each
student a seat, is working out nicely. It
means less work to the administration
and greater freedom to students in choice
of seats. The only possible complication
from this new scheme is that students,
who naturally sit with their friends, may
be too noisy during the speaker's pre
Pigskin playoff ends 0 0
In a close struggle in Armfield Athletic
Center Tuesday afternoon a band of
jocular juniors met a flock of fearless
freshmen for an evenly matched fight to
the finish in the first annual Pigskin
Powder Puff football game.
The game, a money raising project
sponsored jointly by the junior and
freshmen classes, was scoreless.
During the first half, the freshmen
muscled their way into the paydirt on a
pass play to Dianne Smith for a score,
but there was a penalty on the play and
the score did not count.
The juniors, coached by Kenny Brown
ing and Tommy Grayson, weathered the
scoring attempts by the freshmen with
the outstanding blocking of Jane Hill and
Lee Ann Losing. Other defensive leaders
were Sistie Elkins, Beth Bell, Valerie
France, and Trudie Matthews.
Sallye Spivey, the junior quarterback
posed an offensive threat for the fresh
man and broke through the line several
times to rack up yardage. Instrumental
in the scoring attempts were Dottie Alley,
Martha Gibson, Pam Cope, Sue Sherrill,
and P. D. Davis.

Blnford wins skit award
"The Quaker Home for Horney Girls"
by Binford Hall won the freshman skit
award at the W. S. C. Halloween party.
Marty Farty Carter (Martha Carter), play

were on the prowl at "Grimford Castle"
for someone was trying to swim through
the moat because the draw bridge had
come up at 12 O'clock (noon). The
culprit was caught as Jeanne Rapp brought
in the unsuspected Mrs. Pumpkin. Both
girls were dripping wet!
The other skits were not far behind
in originality and humor. Mary Hobbs
dorm did a song and animated motion
myth of "How Captain Hooke, Hooked
The Pumpkin From The Patch." Shore
dorm told the, story of Linus's wait for
the Great Pumpkin. The only "treat"
that he got for his ritual was Snoopy's
mistaking him for a tree. The tale of
"Ole Founders Hall" on Halloween night
was told in a skit with folk song nar
Palms were read by Terry Lindsey who
has had professional training. She an
nounced to Dean Lanier that he was un
happy in his work and had loose morals.
Earlier in the evening, the scary figures
of witch woman Kathy East, bloody
surgeon Suzanne Barraci and devil Chris
Coen, consecutively , won the cafeteria
costume prizes. Chris also had the thrill
of scaring freshman Bruce Johann so
that she could do little more than stutter.
Other highlights of the evening were:
Giant Maynard, and Ape Man Roberts.
Thank you Mr. Lee and kitchen staff for
a great witch-switch!
Revelers go reveling Tuesday
You have all heard of "happenings,"
but have you ever heard of an "apple
ing"? Tuesday evening the Revelers Club
decided to perform one as a publicity
stunt for their up-coming play. The Wild
Duck. They raided the costume and
make-up supplies in Dana and then piled
into a V. W. bus to make their rounds.
They went to the homes of various mem
bers of the faculty and administration
presenting well-polished apples and off
key Halloween carols, the point being to
give a welcome change from those col
lecting goodies. After this was done, the
Revelers disrupted the activities at the
coffee house, (just by walking in, would
you believe) and ended the evening by
entertaining the girls at the W.S.C. Hall
From the mumblings around campus,
one can understand that the high jinks

Prior to opening night the Coffee
House committee was resigned to using
part of the union as a temporary lodge,
since Duke Memorial wasn't ready to
house the language lab. The administrat
ion announced late last Friday that the
lab equipment could be moved after all.
So the Hut committee flew into action
moving furniture out and in, cleaning up
and painting the interior of the old
By Sunday night when Danny Gravas
arrived, Guilford's own Coffee House was
ready and open for business. The authe
ntic atmosphere has attracted many Guil
ford students. Candles in wine bottles
provide the minimal light necessary to
illuminate the round tables, wooden chairs
and abstract wall paintings. Students sit
or stand as they wish, drink coffee,
listen to the entertainer, or just shoot
the bull in general.
Danny Gravas, the first entertainer at
the Hut, was well-received in his nightly
performances. His easy going manner
made the audience comfortable; his will
ingness to do requests only added to the
growing enthusiam. His song selections
varied from the driving "John Henry" to
the sad "If You Go Away". If popularity
of a performer can be measured by the
crowd he draws, Danny Gravas certainly
made a hit on Guilford's campus. While
here he got to know many people per

"Henry is the most dedicated boy to
the game of football it has been my
pleasure to coach," stated head football
coach, John Stewart.
Last year McKay broke the conference
pass receiving record formerly held by
Bucky Pope, who is now with the Los
Angeles Rams, with 55 passes. The brown
haired senior is well on his way to break
ing his own record from last year, after
pulling down 50 passes for the first six
games, with three remaining games. The
swift ball-carrier has already broken his
yardage record. Last year the sure-footed
giant gathered 766 yards; a game average
of 76.6 yards. This year McKay has
totaled 822 yards for six games; a game
average of 116.4 yards. For the first six
games, he has scored eight touchdowns;
six have come on passes, one on a 90
yard kickoff return, and another on a 70
yard punt return.
McKay has shown his ability not only
as a pass receiver but as an elusive runner,
an outstanding punt and kickoff return
man, and also a fine defensive player.
Several professional teams have shown
interest in McKay including the Pittsburg
Steelers and the Los Angeles Rams.
