GUILFOED TAKES THE LAST ONE. In a fast and snappy game here on Saturday, March 29, Elon lost to Guil ford. The game was characterized by biil- lient fielding by both clubs with odds slightly in favor of the Quakers. Hedge peth pitched a steady game and deserved to win. Fike, who ccupied the mound, was effective throughout and especially so when hits meant runs. Elon’s rejuvenated team put up a game fight and came near winning despite the ringers of the opposing team. At any rate they played baseball of sufficient class to prove that Elon can put out a winning team all her own. The g^me: Guilford: Stuart strikes out. Thompson draws four bad ones. Doak does like wise, sending Thompson- to second. Ben- bow rolls one to Ingle who steps on the bag after hobbling the ball long enough for Thompson to score. Davis flies to pitcher. Elon: Walker out, second to first. .John son raps the ozone. Ganison hits safely, but Hedgepeth is out pitcher to fiist. 2nd. G.—Edwards walks, steals second. Short flies to pitcher. Nelson is out to center field, and Edwards caught, second to third by trying to reach third on the throw-in. Elon: Ingle, McCauley and Wright miss three each. 3rd. G.—Eike goes out, pitcher to first. Stewart and Thompson “punch.” Elon : Farmer rolls one to Edwards, who gets a put out. Dickey out second to first. AValker balloons to sliortstop. 4th. G.—Doak out by Ingle, unassisted. Benbow sate on Faimer’s error. Davis flies out to Wright, advancing Benbow, Edwards out at first, unassisted. Elon: .lohnson out, Edwards to Short, the latter covering the bag.

(A series of three letters written by my cousin while he was traveling in Dricam- land last January. Thinking that they may be of interest to the “Weekly” read ers, I send them to the editor for publi cation.—Cousin Ralph.) Letter III. Happytown, Dreamland, Jan. 27, ’11. My Dear Cousin Ralph: Your much enjoyed letter has just been received. You cannot imagine how much good news from the liome land does a fel low when he is wandering on a foreign strand. Well, my travels in this land will soon end and then my way homeward joyfully I shall wend. This is a college, town of about one hun dred and fifty inhabitants. Indeed, the college here is about the whole thing, for around it centers the activity of the entire village. The majority of the fam ilies here are those of either preachers or professors. Some others who are here for the purpose of educating their children make up the remaining villagers. The college rates as one of the best. In the student body are numbered over two hun dred young men and young women. I have always taken an interest in education, and you may easily judge that I could not let pass the opportunity of seeing some thing of college life among these people. I have found the same feeling of good will here as elsewhere in this land. The people are thoughtful, kind and gen erous. They treat visitors royally; they live in bnotherly friendship and happiness. But on the other hand, I have found here customs and peculiarities which you would least ex])ect to see among a people so ed ucated and cultuied. I daresay this is due to a desire to get away from the sim- lile life of their less educated countrymen. So often it is possible for modern ideas to set a false standard of conduct. Men sometimes think it a disgrace should ne cessity cimipel them to walk a single mile; women sometimes stay home from churich to brush dust from off the parlor table. You lemember that I told you in my last letter how the women of Dreamland attended public entertainments and church services. I am surprised to find that such is not the case with the women of this college town. I am told that only thr^e of these women regularly attend services. Some few of them rarely go to an enter tainment or to church; some never go at all. Now, cousin, isn’t it stiange that among these cultured women should be found such a lack of active interest in such things. One would think that attend ing an entertainment would be a pleasure tliem, and that they would delight in giving their presence and help to services of the church. The church needs their presence, and no doul)t but that some oc- tive service would bring joy into their lives. Cousin, it seems to me that the young women here in scliool will be in fluenced by this custom to fall into the same rut when they shall have homes of their own. How can these women escape becoming narrow in their views if they allow themselves to be even shut within the confining walls of their own homes? I have been into some of these homes, and I have found the matrons therein cheer ful, considerate, and kind. Isn’t it a shame that the chuich must needs lose their services through their failure to at tend church meetings. It seems that these village women have just drifted into this habit without stopp ing to consider the evils of such a course. There are servants in a good many of these homes, and also, a cross-counti'y diive does not have to be taken when it is desired to attend a public gathering. There is no sufficient reason to be given why sucli con ditions should prevail in this “burg.” The wife of a deacon who was oraained this last winter) is reported to have re- marke-d that she stayed away churcli on that day to escape hearing the duties and qualifications of a deacon's wife. She must have thought this knowledge would tend to become a nuisance in her life. But enough of this or I fear I shall tire you. A student told me that they have a good faculty. He said there was one genius in the number. This “Prof.” has an idea that all of man’s time should be utilized. To bring about this desired end he is working on a machine that may be fixed to the brain on retiring. The duty of this cunning device will be to keep active that brain while a person sleeps and to record what the brain thinks out. This will double the efficiency of the average man. I have heard many current sayings among the boys here. Cousin, I know you were always interested in things of this kind and so I will TITiote a few for your benefit. Compare them with the sayings heard among our college boys. They are as follows: “Boys, don’t smile at the girls. It is a sin.’’ “Girls, don’t root at the ball-game. Pigs are rooters. ’ ’ “It is a moie serious offense to be caught holding a private chat with your gi.l than it is to be caught drinking.” I shall sail for home next Friday. My trip has been one of great pleasure and profit, but: “ ’Mid pleasures and palaces, though we may roam. Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home.” Lovingly, Frank. Dr. J. H. Brooks.
