OUR ALUMNI BUILDING;
Plans for the Erection of
At the Alumni Banquet during the
celebration of the University' Cen
tennial in 1895 it was resolved .by
tne Alumni present to erect on the
campus a building of handsome and
imposing architecture to '. mark' the
ending of the first centennial of the
University's life and to stand as a
perpetual memorial' of the gratitude
and affection of her sons. : A !
The building' will serve not only
as a stately memorial, but will also
supply a pressing need of the 'Un
versity. The wbnderfuj growth of
the institution has made it almost
impossible to provide a sufficient
number of lecture rooms for the in
structors, and has driven over two
hundred students into the village
for living quarters. c: v:
The picture of the building' may
be seen in this issue of the. Record.
It is modelled after the Boston Pub
ic Library, with an: addition of a
very beautiful and classic portico and !

were appointed a committee, to

been a practicing physician. He had
a large practice throughout the coun

THE GUILFORD GAME.
The 'Varsity Defeats the Guilford
Team by 16 to 0.
Last Saturday's game with Guil
ford did not please the student body
and they had reason to be displeased.
TheHwo teams lined up at 2:05
and for fifteen minutes the Varsity
time and again carried the ball to
the Guilford f ive .yard line, to lose
it on a-fumble and then to go down
.before the Guilford backs for te n
and fifteen yards at a rush. Few
there were on the Varsity who de
serve complimentary mention for
their playing in this game:
Early in the firs half there was an
inexcusable fumble the ball rolling
all over the field with half a dozen
failing to fall on iti The Varsity
lost their nerve, they became rattled
and they never regained their usual
steadiness until the beginning of
the second half.
Guilford, on the contrary, saw
them become rattled, took advantage
of the opportunity, playing fast
snappy ball and making phenomen
al gains against the Varsity.
In the first half Simmons played
the star game for the Varsity and
Armfield for Guilford. Simmons
was oftetj through the line before
interference was formed by the
opponents and ' when attempts were
made to walk through at his posi
tion invariably losses were made.
Perhaps in the first half steadiest
playing for the Varsity behind the
line was the work of Johnson. The
playing of Busbee was better than
anyone expected as his training this
year has only recently begun. In
the first half, Worth, the Guilford
quarterback, played a plucky game
and it is to his credit, more possibly
than to any other Guilfordite, that
that Varsity did not score early in
the first half. His tackling was
low and sure and in the interference .
was most commendable.
There is a deal more pleasure
writing ot the second hair. ien
minutes between ' the two gave
Coach Reynolds time to speak a
word with the men and in his own
way he instilled confidence into
the men who went upon the gridiron
to fight out a winning game.
The placing McRae behind the
line apparently pleased the sidelines
and bleachers as the applause was
iberal. Belden kicked off, a good
ong one, down near the south cor-
ner or tne ueici ana me vaisuj
stopped the Guilford boys gaining
he ball going over on downs on the
Guilford's o5 yard line.
Osbiirn passjd.thj ball to Collins
who made a good gain, then McRae
followed it up with another pretty
run. Belden not to be out done
bucked the line for about, seven
yards and then well every body
knows how it was d'm the ball
was passed to McRa '. and by btw.it t
ful interference he cross d the bne
