THIS WEEK’S POEM
By Sion M. Lynam
Say what you will of wealtli, of all
It brings of luxury and ease;
It steals the music from the soul,
Makes lustreless tlio eye which sees.
Puts oil the common thiugs of life
A price. Like aiigels bought and sold,
it desecrates t)ie beautiful.
I’d rather liave my dreams than gold.
I’d ratlier liear a browu thrush sing
Thank clinking bits of gold for hours;
I’d rather see the rainbow’s luies
And make my round among my flowers,
Tlian sit and watch a misered hoard
And know 'twas mine. I’d rather liold
A liaud ivorn old in works of love
Than have a gleaming pile of gold.
There’s more worthwhile in one brief
Thau in an endless chain of gold;
There’s truth on babbling baby lips
Not found so fresh on lips grown old.
The sordid contacts w'ith the world
Leave more than wrinkles and dimmed
And happy, is .that man who lives
Nor lets his faith in beauty die.
The steadily increasing attend
ance of Burlington people at vari
ous events occurring on the Hill
is, we believe, evidence of the
^ver-growing interest and friend
liness between the two places.
I'he people of Burlington are
very kindly co-operating with the
college in arranging for the stu
dents to attend the fourth num
ber of the concert and lecture
course that is being held in Bur
lington on account of the destruc
tion of the auditorium here.
Those who believe we haven't
an inventive genius in our midst suit, i.i
should call at the power plant and writer declares that coaches and
look over the electric clock ar ■ -a:
gebT Mr. Rothgeb has a clock
that, in accuracy, entirely out
classes the several-hundred-dol-
lar bell system that was destroy
ed in the fire. The clock is for
the purpose of calling the atten
tion of the power house force at
the proper time to blow’ the whis
The originator of this course
claims it is not his purpose to
make it financially profitable to
himself, that he is charging a
small tuition to defray his ex
penses, because it is a private ven
ture and is not subsidized by any
This course is calculated to, and
no doubt will, prove helpful to
those students of the state who
are interested in economics or so
cial science, and Mr. Hoyt his dis
played a commendable spirit in
making such a venture.
\\'ith Coach Corboy making a
name for himself in so many vari
ous Helds of endeavor it is hard to
determine at w'hich angle to pre
sent him. He has always been
one of the best coaches in the
state, and now he is coming into
his own as a speaker and writer.
All Elon students are familiar
with the Coach’s witty and hu
morous talks on various occas
ions. His most recent fame, how
ever, lies in the realm of journal
In the February issue of the
Athletic Journal, a national maga
zine for coaches, carries an inter
esting article from the pen of
Coach Corboy. The article is en
titled Basketball in North Caro
lina. .\n editor’s note accom
panying the article gives the rec
ord of the Coach as a player and
a coach. He makes note of the
fact that tw’ice Coach Corboy’s
basketball teams have been the
runner-up for the state champion
The writer states in his article
that basketball is just coming into
its own in North Carolina, due
primarily to the fact that only
recently the officials have had a
real knowledge of the game. The
writer explains that the first
scrimmage he held on a North
Carolina court was a mad scram
ble around center: that there was
no organized playing, but instead
the men played a "knock-down,
drag-out” sort of game. The
looK o\ci uic ... officials are becoming more effi
ranged by Superintendent Roth- cient in this state and in the en
The students and friends of
Elon were generous in their mon-
etarv gifts for the purpose of pur
chasing miniature gold footballs
to be presented to the last-season
foolball players. The men are
proud of their trophies and appre
ciate the spirit manifested by their
supporters. Those who witness
ed the impressive ceremony Wed
nesday night, at which time the
trophies were awarded, were well
repaid for the amount they invest
ed in this way.
TO THE MEN OF THE
1922 FOOTBALL TEAM
For the faithful service you ren-
dered on the football field this year
you have been awarded the memento
presented you recently. This was
not presented to you as a reward for
the number of games won, but as a
token of love and respect for the
spirit you exhibited in playing your
You men have been honored as no
others have ever been honored at
your college. When, in future years,
you look upon your miniature foot-
ballf each of you can feel that you
are deserving of this signal honor,
for you played your part as best
you saw it under any and all clr-
The team unq.uestionably this year
was the best football team that ever
represented this college, and not be
cause of the fact that the individual
members were of exceptional ability
but because of the fact that you
realized that individuality must be
submerged for the benefit of the
It was not a path of roses that
you traveled this past fall, but one
of hard work, discouragements, sick
ness, injuries and almost everything
that would cause you to lose heart
and give up, but you gave the best
you had and wished that you had
more to give. That is the reason
you met with the success you at
You will, some of you in the near
future, others at a later time, face
this Old World to fight your indi
vidual battles, and if you will carry
into that the same spirit that you
evidenced on the football field, and
meet the knocks and bruises, not
physical but mental and spiritual,
with the same attitude you showed
here, I have no fear but that your
life will be a success, and the world
a better place for your having been
Personally, I want to say to each
one of you that it was pleasure to
work with you, and although it was
necessary at times to take you to
task and say things that were not
pleasant to your ears, it was done
for a purpose, and for your best in
terests. Such honors as have be
fallen you I think you are worthy
of, and if you practice the things
in the game of life that you learn
ed on the football field, then I know
that you will be the success that I
want you to be, and your college will
be proud to call you her son.
