THE UNIVERSITY STUDENT
By “Klem,” Jr.
After a rather successful season of coach
ing his Smith Bulls up and down the grid
iron, Coach Randy Taylor has turned his
energies toward the pi’oducing of an equal,
ly efficient set of Bulls on the basket ball
courts. This is Smith’s first year of con
centration of baskei ball development, but
it appears that Coach Taylor is well able
to take raw material and whip it into first
class condition. Thus it was that after
Smith had thoroughly thrashed a fast and
clever team of cagevs from the Lutheran
College to the tune of a 38-12 score that
they took on the highly tooted quint
from Howard and held them to a 23-18
score in favor of Howard. It was only
Howard’s veteran team work that whipped
these plucky Bulls into submission. Simp
son and Woods made some fine shots and
played a worth while game for Howard.
La Saine, a clever guard on the Smith
five, kept a rather colorful audience on its
toes by his smart floor work and clever
The Smith-Virginia game was rather a
lopsided affair. It was five youngsters
against five veterans. And the veterans
won; and they won decisively. The mighty
Henderson of the Seminary five shot
goals at will and was the outstanding lum
inary of the game. Ellis played a smart
defensive game for Smith.

ONE-SIDED FLOOR TILT
Smith is now entering the most interest
ing part of its schedule, that is, that part
which includes the State series. The Smith
Bulls have taken on such teams as How
ard University, Virginia Seminary and
Clark so that the experience gained will
stand them in good stead for the al-im-
portant State series. Shaw University is
the present title holder and it is doomed for
a fall if the Smith men play the brand of
basket ball that they hvae been exhibiting
here of late. The Smith Bulls are working
hard to annex their second State title this
year. They won the foot ball title and
have thir eyes peeled for the basket ball
title. Most folks in the tar-heel State
concede the base-bail title to Smith as they
have all the members of their champion
ship team of last y^ear. If they win the
basket ball title they wil have made a clean
sweep of the major titles of North Caroli

The Smith Bulls swamped the Living

outset the Bears were outclassed and only
once in the second half was anything like
form shown by them. The Bulls began in
the first few minutes of play shooting the
ball through the net and at the end of the
half were leading 20-2;

Ancient foes like the Bears were not ex
pected to take such a severe lacing without
putting up stiff opposition; therefore, no
surprise was exhibited by the fans when
they came back in the last half with a bet
ter fighting spirit. They best they could
do, however, was to pile up three points to
13 for the Bulls. The work of La Saine
and Avant was scintillating. The former
was high scorer for the home team.

Northern invasion, and the game with Vir

will be another good test before they take

ATHLETE AND CO-ED
Co-eds are a liability, according to Knute
Rockne, famous Notre Dame coach, who
attributes his success to the fact that
there are no women at Notre Dame. “She
takes a lot of the athlete’s time, either
at the expense of his studies, his playing
or his sleep.”—Cornell Daily Sun.
The faculty and students are glad to see
Mr. S. D. Williams, Principal of the High

and Physics were conducted by Messrs.
J. A. Squire, A. S. Powe and V. H. Chavis,
respectively. These gentlemen are mem

Undivided love of our fellows, steadfast
faith in human naiure, steadfast search
after justice, firm aspiration toward im

the hope that others may reap whatever
reward may be. These are the strings

Bull sessions taking on a new aspect as

we are quizzing about the laws and theo

It is paradoxical the vastness of knowl
edge students acquire in a week of “cram
ming.” Methinks if society, athletics and
fraternities were eliminated from collegi
ate life, school terms could be reduced to
three months. Bachelor degrees could be
obtained in twelve months. But minus ex
tra curricula activities who would attend
college! Mental and spiritual development
alone do not educate one as some aged

This 1629 Bull is eliminating the feat

sweethearts, due to adverse criticism. Thi.s

“Most Handsome,” “Most Brilliant,” “Best

The election is to take place some time
during the second week in February.
