This week saw the Clu-istiiin ceain come
out victorious over its ancient rival,
Guilford, and lose to tlie Bai)tist quint
ou the home floor. lioth games were
well played and interesting and drew
large crowds.
Wake Forest Game
Wake Forest was victor o\-er Elon by
a 22 to 20 score here last Friday night
in a game that was slow during the first
period but which perked up and finished
with a series of fast-actiou thrillers.
Flon took the lead eai*ly in the first
half and held a point or two ahead with
Wake Forest tagging closely behind. 9
and 8 was the score at the intermission,
and about the middle of the following
period the Baptists got n\) steam and
overtook the Christian lead. From then
until the final whistle ended the fray it
was nip and tuck with one side register
ing a field goal and then the other in
almost alteruate turns, the ball passing
from one extreme of the court to the
other so fast that the eye of the spec
tators could hai'dly follow it, and just
before the game ended it was the Bap
tist turn to score, which they did and
annexed the game.
CIo!e guarding in the initial period
kept the scoring down, only two field
goals being registered, two for Elon and
one for Wake Forest. The passing game
of the visitors w’orked well. Captain
Fix was the outstanding star for Elon
with six field goals to his credit. Heck
man and Pagano did the best work for
the visitors.
The Brow'n brothers. “Rob" and
*‘Alph,” were absent from the line-up
lu this game because of the death of
their sister.
Perry for the home team and Carlyle
for the visitors both received four per
sonal fouls and substitutes took their
places. Swift, determined, and accurate
playing characterized the last half of
the contest, with the large audience
^‘yelling its head off” for its favorite
team.

Guilford Game
Elon experienced very little difficulty
in defeating the (Juilford quint here ed-
nesday night in a game that only at one
stage seemed in doubt as to the out
come. 24 to 14, in favor of the Chris
tians, was the final score.
Guilford experienced difficulty in find
ing the basket with their shots, and this
conpled with poor work from the foul
line put them out of the running. At
The inevitable has happened! The
old historic Psipheliau Society has divid-
(m1 into two permanent, separate, new
societies. 'Phere has been need for this
division for the last few years for the
old society had outgrown the accomo
dation of the Psiphelian Ilall. But it
seems that the love for Psiphelian and
the sentiment for all its traditions made
the members loathe to divide and become
members of a society other than Psi
phelian. Since the fire the young ladies
have become more practical in their
ideas and though they still have the
old love for Psiphelian they have realized
now is the time for the division as all
the old records and constitution are no
more, and they would have to start anew
anyway.
His
At a joint meeting of the two divisions
of the old society it was decided to leave
it to the choice of the girls as to which
one they would join. Of course there
were many who felt they could never
be other than Psiphelian. others who were
indifferent, and still others who realized
that it w^as up to somebody to start the
new. The indifferent ones were divided
evenly between the Psiphelian and the
new.
There are thirty-seven charter mem
bers of the Psychaleon Literary Society
Each Psychaleon girl is very enthusias
tic over the ideals set forth in the meet
ings and each member is working with
a vim to set the highest of standards for
the society to which they have given their
allegiance. The prospects for the future
of Psychaleon Society are very bright.

nijiht at tlie end of the first half of the

Harrell, football siionsor, marched out
in tiie middle of the gymnasium where
the coach made his speech of presenta-1
tion. His speeeh in part follows:
-It is n pleasure at this time, in he-1
halt of the students and the faculty to
liresent to the football men these gold
footballs. It is great liow yon of the
stndeiit body have stood behind theni.
"To the football men let me say,
if you will remember the one lesson of
self sacrifice that you have learned ou
the football field 1 will feel that I have
at least done one good deed for you.”
As the coach took the gold footballs
from the box he made a few remarks
about the characteristic of each individ
ual. Then he passed the prizes to Miss
Harrell, who in her charming way and
\\ith her friendly smile passed them to
tlie men as their names were read.

follows: Braxton, Kirkland, Ilainer,
High. Brown, Barker, Smith, Whitsell,
Flynn, Fix, A. Brown, Thomas, Farmer,
President Harper was in Kaleigh on
Monday att‘*uding the meeting of the
Commissions on Christian Union of the
Free Will Baptist and Christian
t.’hurches. -
In speaking of the event. Dr. Harper
declared. ‘‘It was a most delightful ses
sion. Xot a thing happened to mar the
fellowship and Christian spirit of the
occasion, because tw'o branches of the
Church of Christ met seeking to know
and to do His will.”
The agreement that was adopted by
the commissioners jointly reads as fol
low’s :
*'We, representing the Free Will Bap
tist and Christian Churches hereby
agree :
“1. That Jesus is the head of
Church.
‘•2. That the Bible is the sufficient
rule of faith and practice.
“H. That Christian character is the
l>roper test of fellowship in^ the Church
of Christ.
"4. That the right of private judg
ment or the liberty of conscience is a
lirivilege and duty of all.
*‘.5. That the reciprocity of ministers
and members betw’een our churches is
desirable.
0. That the name of the Church of
Christ is a matter for His followers to
determine, though Christian is a proper
name for all believers.
“7. That the local church should be
autonomous.
“8. That fraternal delegates should
be interchanged for our public assem
blies.
“9. That we should write for each
other’s periodicals and visit and use each
other's institutions.
■‘10. That a United Protestantism is
the goal of our Churches,”
Dr. Harper further stated that it was
agreed to exchange tw’o hundred copies
of the Free Will Baptist and The Chris
tian Sun, mailing them to leaders in the
respective churches.
Rev. R. F. Pittman, president of the
Free Will Baptist State Convention, and
Rev. L. E. Smith, president of the South
ern Christian Convention, presided joint
ly. in the session which met in the dining
room of the Bland Hotel. Rev. Thos.
1-:. Beamon and Dr. Harper were the
joint secretaries.
Will these two churches eventually
unite? I>r. Harper was asked. His re-
plj’ was couestic, as follows: “Day by
day. in every way. we shall know each
other better, and perfect knowledge casts
out fear. Eventually all I'rotestant de
nominations will unite, as Jesus prayed.”

The Faculty Nevele Club met in its
bi-monthly regular session on Monday
evening in the home of Mrs. W. A. Harp

jolly group gathered for the Valentine
social wliich the hostess had prepared
for the occasion. The home was decorat

Each club member brought her em

Heai'ts are bowed down—crushed with
sorrow ou account of the sad death of
Miss Allie Brown, which occurred Fri
day evening at 7 :28 o'clock. Miss Brown
was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. W.
Brown of this community and was, at
the time of her death, about tw'enty-two
years of age. Death was caused by
peneumonia which follow’ed a severe at
tack of influenza. She is survived by a
sorrowing father and mother, five broth
ers, four sisters and a host of lovin;
friends.
Miss Brown was one of the most popu
lar yoiuig ladies here and throughout
the state. She filled an important place
in the social and religious life of the
community. She had a sweet, winsome
personality which endeared her to ever
one who knew her. Her lovable charac
ter and rare personal charm made the
community life more enjoyable: her life
in the home made that of her dear ones
sunny and cheerful for there was never
a more beautiful spirit than hers. She
did so much in every way to make the
\\orld a sweater and a happier place for
having lived in it. Relatively speaking,
her years ^^•ere not many but she has
lived much and her service to other
cauuot be estimated. Lives are not
counted by days and years but by the
richness and fuluess of these. Hers was
indeed rich and full and sweet.
Life held so much for Miss Brow^n-
it was so dear to her. She was especial
ly talented in art having graduated in
that department from Elon College in
1022. Not only in art but in voice w’as
a wonderful career prrdii ted for her.
She loved the beautiful with all the
ardor of the true artist-sonl and this
part of her nature was revealed by her
own beautiful life and fine ideals.
The impressive funeral service was held
in the home because of illness in the
family. It was conducted by Dr. N. G.
Newman, assisted by Dr. W. C. Wicker
and Rev. J. W. Patton. Special selec-
: tions were renderecl by a male quartette.

One of the most elaborate events of
the social life at Elon was the Beta Om-
ron P>eta banquet held Saturday even-

nasium.
The decorations were especially beau-
iful. a part of the gymnasium being
curtained off to represent a Japanese

tice work of blue and white crepe paper.

ored Japanese lanterns hung from the
ceiling and baloous of all sizes and colors
were hung in the corners of the room.
Japanese flo-\vers were used for the
centers of the small tables, w’hich were
just large enough to seat two couples.
The couples were escorted to their
tables, and the club yell was given, led
by Victoria Adams. The i>rogram be-

night when it assembled for its regular

attendance and the program was thor
