The Elon baseball squad coutinued its
losing streak, which has been with it
most all season, by dropping two games
on the home lot this week. The two
victorious teams were Guilford and
Elon took the lead in the first inning
by scoring three runs and when two
more were shoved across it looked as if
Elon was going to reap sweet revenge
on the Quakers for the defeat at their
hands on Easter Monday. However
Guilford came back sti'ong in the fourth
and scored four runs. Another run was
annexed in the seventh, and another one
shoved over iu the ninth smashed all
hopes of shaking the jinx and another
game had gone “blooie” for Maroon and
Gold. Shore was driven from the mound
in the first inning of the game. Burge
who relieved him did good work for the
Quakers. Barker pitched a steady game
for Elon throughout. He struck out nine
men against four for his opponents and
allowed only seven hits while his team
mates poimded the Guilford hurlers for
nine safeties, every man on the team ex
cept two getting hits. Guilford’s bunched
hits coupled with errors cost Elon this
six to five game.

J. U. Fogleman, vice-president; and W.
Tj. McLeod, secretary.
Mr. Rudd has served the Y. M. C. A.,
during the past year as vice-president,
and his services in that capacity have
been most efficient. He is vitally interest
ed in the work of the organization which
he is to lead. Mr. Rudd is a member
of the junior class. He has been active
in almost every line of college life. Be
sides heading the Y. M. C. A. for the
coming year, Mr. Rudd will edit the
Phipsicli for 1924.
J. U. Fogleman who has been chosen
vice-president is a member of the sopho
more class. His work in the Y. M. C.
A, since lie has been in college has
brought Mr. Fogleman forward. He has
at all times put the same strength and
energy into the Y. work which has
characterized his baseball pitching.
W, L. McLeod is a member of the
freshman class, but his work since enter
ing college has given the students a deep
confidence in Mr. McLeod’s ability as a
worker and a leader.
The present officers of the Y. M. C. A.
will retire on May 1st. L. J. Bray, the
retiring president, .has done much to
bring the work of the Y. forward, and
in this he has been ably assisted by P.
T). Rudd, vice-president; and W. B. Ter
The incoming officers realize their re-
sponsibiility and pledge themselves to
make the coming year the best possible.

C. A. Training Council held at Trinity
College April 13-15.
The colleges represented there were
North Carolina College, Greensboro Col
lege, Guilford, Meredith, Salem, Trin
ity and Elon.
The Council was one of the best ever
held in this district and with a larger
attendance. The program was prepared
this year by a committee from the stu
dents with Miss Susie West, of North
Carolina College at chairman; whereas
in former years it has been prepared
by Y. W. C. A, secretaries.
The Elon delegates were delighted
with the royal entertainment of the
Trinity people and enjoyed the entire
meeting. They were entertained in

account of the weather. This meet,
which Trinity won by the score of

more suitable for a swimming contest
than for a track meet. The track was
heavy and the field slippery, which pre

outstanding event of the meet. In the

entered several men in this event and
it was interesting to watch Rudd work
his way past man after man and finally
leave them behind for the finish.
Most of the Elon men w’ere used in
more than one event and in all of them
they showed up well considering the
condition of the field and the time they
nave been practicing.
G. Brown was the highest scorer for
Elon, taking first place in the shot-put
and second place in high hurdles. Cap
tain Shankle led the Trinity team with
13 points. Others who showed up well
in this meet were Hainer, Wicker, Mc

Attractive Decorations Give Woodland Effect — Colors of Both
Classes Used — Excellent Program Rendered —
Music Furnished by Orchestra.
A varied, but interesting and helpful
program was rendered Monday night by
members of the Psiphelian Society. It
was evident from the work done by each
member that they were putting their best
into their society work.
Miss Essie Gotten gave a synopsis of
Hamlet, which was very beneficial to the
Society. An interesting paper, “Why I
Took Domestic Science and Some Help
ful Hints,” was read by Miss Eunice
Morrow. The value of Domestic Science
was well brought out in Miss Morrow^s
paper. Miss Nettie Harris read an orig
inal story, which was very interesting.
Miss Nannie Aldridge in her own
pleasing manner read, “Mice at Play.”
This was a humorous selection and was
enjoyed by all. Misses Annie Mae Char-
nock and Rena Smithwick did not fail
to amuse the society by their Humor and
Local Events. Each one localized their
jokes and news which caused their work
to be more amusing. A special feature
of the program was the musical numbers
which were rendered by the following:
Misses Annie Bell Cardwell and Mary
Hall Stryker, each sweetly singing a
solo, and' Miss Kate Strader played a
very beatifu! piano solo.
The concluding number on the pro
gram was a debate. Query: Resolved,
That the University of North Carolina
should be co-educational. The affirmative
was upheld by Miss Mamie Sockwell and
Irene Ellington; the negative by Misses
Margaret Rowland and Annie Neville.
The judges decision was in favor of the
affirmative. Each one in defending their
side of the question brought out some

One o£ the gayest, happiest and mort
thoronglily delightful occasions of the
year was the Junior-Senior reception
held in the girls gymnasium Friday even
ing from 7:.30 to 10:30 o’clock. This
was a long looked-forward-to time and
was perhaps the most elaborate Junior-
Senior reception ever given at Elon, and
eiiually enjoyed by the juniors, seniors
and other \isitors.
The decorations w'ere especially beau
tiful ; representing a woodland scene w'ith
cedar and pine trees and flowering dog
woods, changing the room into an en
chanting spot of wondrous beauty. A
big golden moon shone from one corner
of the room, and added a touch of ro
mance to the scene. Proverbiallly wise
owls peered from the branches of the
trees making the whole scene as realistic
as nature itself.
The same rustic effect was carried out
in the place cards and favors, the place
cards being cut to represent owls, the
mascot of the senior class. Pansies, the
class flower, were given to each person
upon entering the room and were used
as a decorative touch at the tables.
Music w'as rendered throughout the
evening by the Two-More Orchestra.
Tables, with seats for four, were ar
ranged throughout the room. Tempting
refreshments consisting of chicken salad,
w'afers, punch, orange ice and cakes were
served by Misses Margaret Joe Ballen
tine, Ruth Crawford, Annie Simpson,
Alma Smith and Rena Smithwick.
Mr. G. D. Colclough served as toast
master and his address of welcome made
every visitor glad to be a guest of the
Junior class. Mr. H. L. Scott responded,
assuring the hosts and hostesses of the
appreciation of the guests who were the
recipients of their hospitality.
During the course of the evening read
ings were given by Misses Jennie Gunt
er and Margaret Moring. Musical selec
tions were rendered by Misses Fisher,
Gotten, Barrett and Lawrence. Toasts
were given by Misses Mary Swanson and

Miss Coghill Speaks
At Burlington High
“Stay in School and Go to College
Social’ ’ Held—All Colleges
The “Stay-in-school and go to college”
social held at the Burlington High School
Friday night, April 13, was a delightful
affai)'. This was given by the girls of
the High School and representatives from
all the leading colleges were present.
Miss Pattie Coghill was the Elon rep
resentative and made a talk appropriate
for the occasion. After the talks by the
girls of the ditEerent colleges the girls of
the High School gave yells for the col
leges and did some very interesting
stunts. There were duets and other
songs by the girls. This “social” which
is held each year in the Burlington High
School for both boys and girls is a
splendid idea. It encourages the pupils
and really makes them want to go to
college. This excellent spirit may ac
count for the fact that fifty-tour out of
the fifty-six graduates of last year’s class
are now in college. This idea should be
recommended to the other high schools
of the State. One week previous to this
the boys of the Burlington High School
held their social which was almost similar
to the one held by the girls. The lead
ing colleges of the State were represent
ed at this meeting also. Mr. Roy Helms
spoke for Elon College.
Miss Lena Jackson and Nell Hamil

McLean at her home in Gibsonville, N.
