We could change this trite expres- s.cn slightly and say — “Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of our college” — and express the sentiments of most of our sophomores concerning our coming campus elections. For almost a decade Gradner- Webb College has had far-reaching influence as a school with a high scholastic rating, superior executive leadership, and an outstanding faculty. In the last few years its rise as a potent athletic power has been remarkable. Our students also manage to achieve outstanding records after leaving Gardner-Webb. The percent age of our graduates who attend senior college is tremendously high. Living in an age when the develop ment of youth has been greatly stressed, our school has become a leader in preparation for the fu- However, student activity and par ticipation has not been at its best during this school year. We have not as yet lived up to the goal set for complete student government. Less than half of the members of the sophomore class attended a re cent class meeting. The average altendance in freshman meeting£> is only about 509c of the enroll ment. Participation in other ac tivities is similar! The South has advanced in re markable fashion within our life time. Dominion by sectional rivals is decreasing for the first time since General Lee surrendered his Sou thern forces to the Union foe on April 9, 1865, Western North Caro lina has become one of the most progressive regions in Dixie. It is up to us to continue this work. And a sound footing may be obtained right here on our campus. Om- students are the leaders of to morrow! We must put our all to work in the coming elections. The re.sponsi- bility imposed upon us as students may be met by discussing the candi dates, endorsing someone for each .tob, and trying our best to gel our candidates elected. Let this year ;nd as we hope the next one will begin. Various Team Sports To Start Immediately! The climax of the annual struggle between the highly esteemed sopho mores and the lowly freshmen for the official athletic supremacy of the campus has been set for April 10, but the contest between the two classes will begin at once. Compe tition in the team sports — soft ball, basketball, baseball, volleyball, badminton, and ping pong — must be completed by the time for the track and field events so that a class winner can be picked according to the total points accumulated in all events. The first contest between the two classes, a basketball game, is sched uled for March 13 at 8 o’clock in the h-gh school gym. There will be both gu-l’s and boy’s games. The small admittance fee will be used in the preparation of the freshman-sopho- more banquet which will climax the festivities of Field Day. Coach Ken Brady reports his team, is in great shape and anticipating a great vic tory. Coach Bunny Price of the freshman squad is equally optimis tic. Try outs will be held for all sports and the times and the people in charge will be announced in the meetings of the respective classes. Points will be given on this basis: five points for first, three points for second, and one point for third. Each participant in a team sport will receive one point and the win ning team will receive five points. After all the events have been run off the freshman boy and gn-1 and the sophomore boy and girl with the highest number of points will re ceive trophies as “Most Outstand ing.” With competition in team sports from now until the big day, then the track and field events in the morning and a varsity baseball game in the afternoon of Field Day, and the Freshman-Sophomore Banquet to complete the affair in fine fash ion, it really looks like a gala day for all. And may we remind you that there will be no classes at any time during the busy day!!!
