Game for Championship—
Hard Hitting Feature.
After the varsity baseball season
ended here May 3 with Elon winning
from Dfividsou a aeries of inter-class
games were scheduled. Each class was
to play every other class and the two
highest play for the championship. The
first of these games was played on Fri
day, May 4, between the freshman and
sophomore classes. Monday of this
week the senior and junior classes play
ed, and Tuesday the seniors played
again, this time against the sophomore
class. Yesterday the final game wa's
played between the senior and fresh
man classes because these two teams
had won tw’o games each and the sopho
more and junior classes had decided to
drop out of the contest because they
were eliminated so far as champion
ship chances were concerned. The sen
iors defeated tlie freshmen and are
now undisputed champions so far as
class baseball goes.
The freshman nine defeated the soph
omores in this game which was a seven-
inning affair by prearrangement.
Jack Underwood did the twirling for
the first year team and had a slight
margin over his opponent, “Jimmie”
Fogleman, who hurled for the sopho
Underwood fanned seven while Fo
gleman caused only four to sw’ing at
the blankness of the atmosphere. The
freshmen were aided materially in their
victory by loose playing behind Fogle
man by the sophomores. The fresh
men scored in the third and sixth inn
ings, securing two runs in each of these.
The sophomores were held away from
the plate until the final frame, when
two free passes, a wild throw and a
hit scored two runs. The final score
stood 4 to 2 in favor of the freshmen.
The seniors started a batting ..ram
page at tlie very first and continued
piling up runs on tlic juniors in each
frame. In the third and fifth they
punched the agate for a total of six
counters. Hook scored first for the
juniors and Braxton followed with a
lioinerun with a runner on bases, thus
scoring tw'o more.
Barker was on the mound for the
juniors and G. Underwood and Marlette
did the twirling for the seniors. The
score when tabulated show'^ed the sen
iors 10 runs to 3 for the juniors.
This game was tlie best of the entire
series so far as real baseball goes. It
was fast from the very start.
Fogleman took the mound against
the seniors and held thein scoreless un
til the last half of the seventh, when
Marlette scored one run whicli gave his
team the victory 1 to 0. Perry did the
tw’irling for the seniors and was nevei
in danger after the second inning, when
Patton was safe on first and Elder hit
for three bases. Patton was caught
■ at the plate trying to score on this hit.
Elder was also caught at home base
attempting to score on an infield hit
by Terrell. After this it was a pitch
er’s battle until the final inning, when
the seniors forced the one run over,
thereby winning the game.
This game which was to decide the
•championship started with a rush. The

will be a considerable improvement
over the method now in use with
the laboratories scattered around

Misses Berta Crutchfield and Pattie
Coghill for the girls, while the orators
will bf-' represented by II. Lee Scott. R.
S. Helms, and Herbert Scholz, Jr.
The oratious and essays were widely
varied in their choice of subject matter,
and as a whole their style was excellent.
The whole number was somewhat above
the average, and many not chosen by
the committee to appear at commence
ment were almost equally as good as
those chosen. Tlie contest was warm
throughout, and large numbers of stu
dents turned out for the orations.
It was announced that one day Avould
be given for this contest, but the burn
ing of the administration building with
rhe chapel made it impossible to carry
out the plans of the college. This will
probably be done next year in the new

story was about two sisters. The elder
