THIS WEEK’S POEM
By Sion M. Lynam
1 weut througli the niglit and I saw far
The gliiTiineriiig' points of light
Througli windows of houses where chil
Glad homes by the lamps made bright.
1 went through the uight and 1 saw' fai
Far over the hill’s higii crest,
The glimmering stars from tlie house
That mark where the angels rest.
I went through the night, through the
dark, dark night,
And I saw' not a single sign.
For the mist hung low and the clouds
The j)lace where the stars did shine.
I went through the night, and 1 sought,
1 found not the faintest beam;
So I turned from the out to the inwarl
And sought in my soul for a gleam.
I weut through the night of my' petty
And I found one smouldering glow
Hid deep iu the fragile forgotten
That my youth had ideased to kuow.
I shall go through the shades of the
But I'll carry my light along;
I’ve fanned to a Hamo that smoulder
And found it a lasting s(ing.
The debris from the adminis
tration building, like the material
for our driveway entrances, has
become a landmark on the cam
pus. We will feel at a loss when
it is removed.
In the realm of journalism we
speak of news as being something
unusual. Therefore, it is hardly
worth-while to say that the Clio
Annual Entertainment was a suc
cess. That is not news, because
the Clio plavs are alwavs success
HIGH SCHOOL BUILDINGS
Recently we had the privilege
of visiting one of the most up-to-
date and modernly equipped high
school buildings in the state. This
building is in a small town, but
in a town that believes in the edu
cation of its youth.
We inspected the building from
dome to basement. When we
reached the gym we were sur
prised to see that the space from
floor to ceiling was hardly greater
than that of a good-sized garage.
The low ceiling in this gym made
it wholly impossible for a basket
ball court to be constructed there
There are other considerations
that would make it feasible to
construct an adequate gym, but
the popularity of basl'etball in the
high school would, in itself, war
rant the proper construction of a
place for its playing.
This high school is not the only
one that has come under our ob
servation as having failed to prop-
erlv construct its gym. Ihere are
several schools throughout the
state that, through efforts to econ
omize or through the failure to
realize the im])ortance of a good
gymnasium, have failed to pro
vide for the fa\orite indoor sport.
Basketball is played at a season
when weather conditions are un
suitable for outdoor playing, thus
rendering it impractical for teams
to play on outdoor courts. Aside
from this, it handicaps a team ;
because a player cannot easily
ada|)t himself to an indoor court
when he has been accustomed to
an outdoor court, and vice-versa. |
It may appear rather presump
tuous for us to attempt to dictate
to those in the state who have in
charge the construction of school
buildings. Hut w'e do feel that we
will be forgiven for dropping a
little suggestion along the way
side with the hope that someone
might consider it.
W'e are vitally interested in the
high schools of’ the state. What
concerns them concerns us. We
were there one day and those who
are there now will be here some
day. So we trust that we might
be' forgiven for suggesting that
those w'ho have in charge the con
struction of high schools will lay
more stress on providing adequate
gymnasium space in their new
schools. I.ike the school we vis
ited the other day, there are num
bers of others that have spent
money to provide a gym that is
of no practical use, when a few'
hundred dollars more would pro
vide a good up-to-date place for

Scoring started from the initial min
ute of play. Elon took the lead but
was overtaken by the end of the first
period, that section ending 15 to 13 in
favor of the visitors. Throughout the
first frame the game never lagged, and
interest was kept up until the final
Elon weakened at the beginning of
the second session and Davidson forged
12 points ahead, which lead was cut to
six points before the end of the fray.

A. C. C. Game
Elou overwhelmed the lighter team
from Atlantic Christian College here
last Monday night and defeated them
by the one-sided score of 44 to 17. The
game was without features exeei)t the
ability of tlie local players to throw
goals almost at will.
Fix of Elon was the individual st:’.r,
leading the scoring with nine field goals
"i'he decision of the building
committee for the new adminis
tration biiilding in choosing Joe
Stout as the contractor is hailed
by the friends of Klon with appro
bation. It is felt that a better
choice could not have been made.
Mr. Stout has constructed some
of the best school buildings in the
state, and it was because of bis
experience and cquijMnent that
tlie building committee awarded
him the contract. Aside from the
business side of the transaction.
Mr. Stout is a friend of the col
lege and will, therefore, have a
peculiar interest in the work
which he is undertaking.
We congratulate Mr. Stout on
receiving the contract, and we
congratulate the college on secur
to his credit. ‘‘Alpii” Brown also
played a good game. The only depart
ment of the game in whicli. llie visitors
showed they were skillel was in shoot
ing fouls, but did not seem to find the
basket from the C(>art altliongli taking
Elou took the lead at the beginning
and held it throughout, the visitors
dropping further behind as the game
progressed. During the last five min
utes of i?lay the second team replaced
the first ^tring of Elon jiien ami put
new life into the game, which up until
tfiat time had been slow with the ex
ception of a few instances.
Finch was the only outstanding play
er for the visitors, doing excellent work
in caging the ball from the foul lino.
