cost Elon the game. The score was
6 to 3. G. Brown hit for three bases
in this game.
North Georgia A. C., First Game
The first game with North Georgia

the lead in the first inning by scoring
two runs and it appeared as if they
would run away with the game, but
Elon came across with four in the fifth.
In the eighth Elon scored two more.
Barker, pitching for Elon, went good.
Elon won this game by bunching hits.
McDonald, Georgia’s pitcher, worked
fine in tliis game. Score 6 to 3 iu Elon’s
favor.
North Georgia, Second Game
In the second game with North Geor
gia Fogleman was sent, in for mound
duty and remained on the hill until the
game was safely tucked away and then
gave way to R. Brown in the sixth,
who finished the game. Only one run
was scored on Fogleman and three on
Brown. Elon knocked Georgia's pitch
er out in the fourth inning and two
other pitchers were used in this game.
The feature of this game was Gilliam’s
three base hit, and Lindley's longest
hit of the season, which w-ent between
openings in the fence and counted for
only two bases on account of ground
rules. It would have been good for an
easy home run.

state have completed their financial
campaigns to feed the unfortunates in
the oldest Christian nation in the world,
and the people are now asked to send
in winter clothing which they are cast
iug off.
Dr. Brooks points out that every com

there is still some wear will save a hu
man life. Straw hats and cotton goods

One of the most elegant social affairs
of tlie year was t'he first annual banquet
of the Tau Zeta Phi held Saturday eve
ning, April 7, from 6:30 to 9 o’clock.
A part of the ladies’ gymnasium was
curtained off to form a square. This
was beautifully decorated in green and
gold, the colors of the Tau Zeta Phi,
into the appearance of an arbor. The
solid walls were of gold crepe paper
overhung by long, creeping vines of ivy.
The ceiling was lowered, in order to
give the room a cozy appearance, by a
heavy network of the green cedar and
pine. The fragrant odor of the cedar
added much to the attractiveness of
the place.
The color scheme of green and gold
was carried out through the entire dec
orations and menu. The tables were
ornamented with yellow jonquils; and
the room was lighted with yellow and
green candles. Just outside the en
trance two large dolls dressed in green
and gold were used to bid the guest
welcome by means of a card on which
the word “Welcome” was written.
A sumptuous six-course dinner was
served. The courses were as follows^
fruit cocktail, cream tomato soup, cubes,
baked chicken, dressing, giblet gravy,
creamed potatoes, asparagus tips, pick
les, stuffed celery, sliced tomatoes, fin
ger rolls, iced tea, candlestick salad,
saltines, banquet cream, gold cake, crys
tallized fruits, salted peanuts.
The address of welcome was given by
Miss Nonnie Bailey, toastmistress, and
the response to the w’elcome was given
by Mr. G. C. Donovan. Throughout the
evening toasts, speeches and jokes were
given by the members and their guest.
Misses Nannie Alridge and Mamie
Moore each gave a reading. Misses Lu-
cile and Annie Belle Cardwell rendered
a very beautiful vocal duet, “A Per
fect Day.” While the courses were
being served several splendid selections
of popular music w^ere played on the
Kimball. At the close of the evening
the guests gave a yell for the Tau Zeta
Phi.
Those present at the banquet were
Dr. and Mrs. W. A. Harper, Prof. and
Mrs. P. S. Kennett, Miss Nonnie Bailey
and G. C. Donovan, Miss Minnie Edge
and H. A. Edge, Miss Nannie Aldridge

and to the delight of the men they em
barked on what looked like an impossible
discovery of a hidden treasure, said to
