Team Ends Season on Dress Pa
rade—Both Visiting Teams
Get Home Run Each.
The Elon baseball team which has been
trailing the dust during the season
staged a wonderful come-back and won
the last two games scheduled. The fight
ing spirit, which is characteristic of Elon
teams ,and which has been lacking this
season, was in evidence during these two
games. There was team work and the
whole nine worked smoothly behind the
pitchers who were in great form. The
teams which fell before Elon’s eleventh
hour rush were Lenoir and Davidson.
The former losing to Maroon and Gold
4 to 3 and the latter 2 to 1.
The Christians defeated Lenoir here
Friday, April 27 by a score of 4 to 3.
The visitors used three pitchers in their
effort to defeat the Christians. Errors,
wild pitches, and free passes were re-
flponsible for the largest part of the
scoring, only one earned run being credit
ed to each team. Kaniker began mound
duty for the visitors but was relieved by
iJidPs in the second inning. Sides took
the h^^lm while the bases were full, but
i)y preit\' pitching retired the Christians
from their half of the inning without
scoring. Sides, however, became wild in
the sixth and issued three free passes.
Lindley followed with a hit which scor
ed two runs. Moose took charge of the
pitching station for Sides in the 7th
And finished out the game.
Three errors allowed the _ visitors two
runs in the 8th. Boggs followed with a
circuit clout, the only home run hit this
season by any team on Comer field.
The visitors were one run ahead in
the final half of the last inning, but
Brown got on by error and scored on
fl wild pitch. Marlette hit safely and
Underwood broke^up the game with a
three bagger sc^'ing Marlette. Eogleman
did steady work for Elon allowing only
four hits. Elon secured nine hits from
the three Jjenoir pitchers.
Elon defeated Davidson here yesterday
afternoon befon* one of the largest
crowds of the season.
Barker, who did the twirling for the
home team, was in fine form and had
the edge on his opponent, Sorrells, who
was on the mound for the AVildcats. The
scoring began in the first inning when
S. Alford hit one into deep center for
four sacks. In Elon’s half of the first
Brown beat one out and scored on
Marlette’s single. Sorrell held the
■Christians until the eighth when Mar-
lette's hit again featured in a mu.
Davidson threatened in the ninth when
they had men on third and first and
Sorrells at bat with three balls and no
strikes called on him. At this point
Fogleman relieved Barker and with
three baffling twisters from his strong
ftSDi he caused the Wildcat pitcher to
whifE the air. The hitting of S. Alford
. ^nd the pitching of Sorrells were the
■outstanding features for Davidson.
The shining marks for Elon were
Barker, who allowed only five hits, Fogle-
Dian who delivered in the pinch by whif
fing Sorrells, and Marlette’s three hits
which counted for half those secured by
tis team. He also stole two bases.
Underwood caught a good game.
Miss Jennie Gunter spent the week
end in Greensboro, N. C., with relatives.

TO READ STUDENT RODY
Popular New President Has No Oppo
sition—Will Succeed W. G.
At a meeting of the men students held
in the men’s gymnasium on Tuesday
afternoon J. R. Barker, of Burlington,
was unanimously elected president of
the Student Senate for the coming year.
Mr. Barker, who is a member of the com
ing senior class, is very popular on the
campus. He is an all-round athlete as
i.s evidenced by the fact that he plays
baseball, football and basketball. He is
one of the mainstays of the varsity
pitching staff, this being his third year
as a member of the team. He is not
only an athlete, but takes an active part
in other activities of college life.
The election of Mr. Barker means that
the Student Senate will have at its head
a capable man who has all the qualifica
tions of a leader. If the students co
operate with the new president it is safe
to say that student government will move
' smoothly and that it will have a success
The retiring president. W. G. Stoner,
of Greensboro, has done much for the
student government during his term.
There ha\ e been many problems during
his term but with his natural leadership
and ability he has been able to solve
them and has done many thingse which
will tend to make student government
mean more to the students and the col
lege. Mr. Stoner is a member of the
grailuating class this year and is popular
throughout the whole student body.

STATELY OAKS GIVE WAY
FOR LIRRARY R0ILDIN6
The stately oaks are now falling as
the ground is being cleared preparatory
to the digging of the foundations for the
library building. It was at one time
thought that this building would be post
poned for sometime, but later considera
tion has changed this early decision.
Many of the oaks have already fallen
and many more are marked as doomed.
The building will be placed a little to the
rear of the administration building on
the side next the West dormitory.
The library building will conform to
the general plan of architecture and will
be one corner of the quadrangle with
the administration building as the center.
It is to be modern in every detail and
will have space for one hundred thous
and volumes or more.
The money for the erection of this'
building has already been given by a
generous friend of the college. Work on
the four buildings will be carried on at
the same time. In this way much time
can be saved in the construction pro
