The en tire staff are more busily engag ed at their respective duties than they have been at any time during the year. The coopera tion of the student body has made it possible for the editor- in-chief to follow his schedule with very little deviation. About the onlyj! drawback is credited to a few iiidividuals. and organiza tions who have failed to have photography done. This seems a small thing indeed, but a few more days delay on the part of some individuals, or of such or ganizations as—^say the faculty, will mean that the annual will fail to realize the benefit of dis counts from both engraver and printer, or it will mean that some very important faces will n(Jt be seen in this handsome volume. Those members of the staff who are preparing copy for the printer are editing some articles that 'Vvill surely be in keeping with, if they do not surpass, the achievements of literary geni- (Continued on Page j) ^ On Thanksgiving day a crowd of two thousand people saw the Weaver College “Blue Giants” triumph over their Baptist ri vals from Mars Hill College. The margin of victory was a field goal from the toe of Kuykendall and a touchdown by Okie Jones. Mars Hill failed to score. Weaver received on the north end of the field and marched down toward the Mars Hill goal line for fifty yards, using straight line bucks. Mars Hill strengthened here and Kuyken dall went back and drop-kicked a beautiful field goal. ! Weaver received again and i earned the ball steadily down I the field but lost the ball on downs on Mars Hill’s thirty- yard line. The rest of the half was a punting duel, neither team gaining an advantage. Mars Hill lost her best chance to score at the beginning of the last half. Kuykendall fumbled the opening kick-off and Cook recovered on Weaver’s seven-yard line. The Baptist’s started an offensive drive on the “Blue Giant” line which was re pulsed with several yards loss. Sams then attempted a drop- kick which went wild and it was Weaver’s ball on her twenty- yard line. Weaver could not gain and Brummitt punted out of bounds on the fifty-yard line. Mars Hill punted back and for the rest off the quarter and most of the last one the two teams resorted to a kicking game. With about five minutes to play and the ball in Weaver’s possession on her own twenty-yard line Lemond made a beautiful kick that went for seventy yards. Mars Hill recov ered on her ten-yard line. After two ruiming plays had failed Reece kicked and the ball went out of bounds on the Baptist thirty-yard line. Here Coach Arbogast substituted 0. Jones for Clemens and this big fellow ripped the Mars Hill line open until he had crossed the go^ line. Kuykendall kicked goal and the scoring was over for the day. The game ended with the ball in possession on Mars Hill’s ten-yard line. Weaver gained three times as much ground as Mars Hill and was exceptionally strong on off tackle plays and short end runs. Mars Hill based her offense on the forward pass. She complet ed several for long gains but was not able to do this consistently. Lemond intercepted one Baptist pass and would have ran for a touchdown had he not stepped out of bounds. Horace Clemens with his knee in a brace was the offensive star of the game making many long runs despite his leg. Kuyken- (Continued on Page 2) SOME INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THIS YEAR’S STUDENT BODY At a recent chapel meeting slips were passed out among the students calling for certain in formation and the results of this survey is very interesting. Thfe average age was found to be 18, 31 students testifying to that age, while 19 years ran a close second with 23 fessing up to that number of birthdays. It was found that the youngest, 15 years, and the oldest 80 years, were both among the co-eds. In religious beliefs or affiliations the Methodists lead by a sub stantial niajority with the Bap tist next in rank. It was quite a revelation to learn that there is one student in college who avows he is a “holy roller.’ Weaver college has this year students enrolled from several states and two students from Cuba. The greater part of the student body, however, p.laiTn the “Old North State” as their place of birth, but other states come in for a share also, with two students registering from the “Volunteer” , state; three from our neighbor to the south; a like number of Georgia “crack ers two from the Orange (Continued on Page 2)
