The Fighting Christians triumphed
over the Hamp.len-Sidney Tigers in the
first home game of , the season to the
tune of a 12 to 7 score. On Comer
field last Saturday as pretty an exhi
bition of team work was displayed by
the home team as lias ever been wit
nessed here. Team work and good old
■conservative football won the day for
Maroon and Gold. Individual and er
ratic playing lost the laurels for the
There were no stars on Coach Cor-
bov’s grid team—or rather, there were
12 stars. Only one substitution was
made, Cardwell for Allston wiien an
injury to the latter made it teeessary
for Allston to retire from the remain
der of tlie game. McAdams, Sides and
Kirkland gained ground consistently
through t]ie line; “Aljph” and “Rob”
Brown did excellent work in receiving
forward passes, and Allston and John
Smith opened up holes in the visitors’
lino for their own backfield man to
plunge through, and nipped in the bud
many stubborn plays to handle.
Hampden-Sidney found Elon’s line
fls firm as a rock wall and no amount
of line plunges made it w’aver. Con
sequently the Tigers’ offense was shift
ed to end runs, at which game by the
stellar work of Smyth and Atkins the
pigskin was carried over the Maroon
and Gold line for the visitors’ lone
touchdown in the third quarter. After
a series of long end runs by Smyth
lie himself carried the ball over for
the touchdown, and Carter booted it
over the crossbars for the extra point
To begin the initial pcrioil Hampton-
Sidney kicked and Kirkland received,
running the ball back 10 yards. Then
came a series of line plunges, and, as
sisted by one forward pass, Harrell to
A. Brown, and two off-side penalties,
the Elon football team marched down
the length of the field for first down
after first ^own until the ball, which
had not yet been in possession of the
visitors, was forced over the counting
mark. Kirkland carried tlie ball ov^,
and Whitesell failed at goal. Score
•6 to 0 in favor of Elon.
Hampden-Sidney then received, and
after one first down was forced to punt.
The quarter ended with the ball in
Elon’s possession on their own 20-yard
The second quarter was a game of
see-saw, with fi^rst one team punting
and then the other, the ball in open ter
ritory all the time. Then came the
touchdown for Hampden-Siduey in tlie
third period. Score 7 to 6 in favor of
In the final frame Elon opened up
lier aerial attack and six short forward
passes directly over the line, five of
which were completed, completely baf
fled the Tigers and before the smoke
of battle had cleared up Sides had

down. Whitesell again failed at goal,

The Sunday morning service of the
College Church varied somewhat last
Sunday from the regular services.
The music, which was perhaps the
most beautiful feature of the service,
was rendered by the junior choir, as
sisted by Misses Madge Moffitt and
Marion Lee Newman. The choir sang
“Holy, Holy, Holy,” as a response,
after which they saug “The Lord is
My Shepherd.” The third musical
number was an anthem, Handel’s
‘ ‘ Largo. ’ ’
Before the sermon by the College
Pastor, Dr. Harper introduced M. Or-
ban, Jr., of Whittier, California, who
is the donor to the Cpllege of $50,000
for the erection of the Christian Edu
cation building. Dr. Harper introduced
Mr. Orban as a man of great deeds, but
of few words. Mr. Orban declined the
invitation to make a speech, but spoke
simply a few words of sincere greeting
and praise to the College.
Dr. Newman took for his text the
advice of Solomon to youth, as found
in Proverbs 3:6: “In all thy ways ac
knowledge him, and he shall direct thy
paths.” The speaker pictured life as
a journey with three most important
dividings of the way. The first one
was the decision of the youth that he
will, or will not, follow Christ. The
second was deciding -vhere to follow
Him,—in what kind of work. And the
third was deciding how to follow Him.
“It is not enough,” Dr. Newman
said, “that the youth shall decide to
follow Christ. He must decide also
where he shall follow Him, and how.
He must so follow Christ that he will
be able to render the greatest possible
service to God through ministering to
the needs of God’s children.”

active place in the life of the commun-
iav, especially with reference to the
duties of the above-named committees.
A number of important changes were
made at’ the Dayton meeting of the
General Board of the Christian Con
vention. Dr. W. A. Harper, who at
tended the meeting, returned to Elon
last Saturday night.
There are 50 members of the Gen
eral Board, and 48 were present at the
Dayton meeting. The two who were
absent were Dr. W. W. Staley and W.
F. Corwith, who were both^ill. Both
these men are known to Elon students
,The meeting was a pleasant one, ac
cording to Dr. Harper. All the paid
secretaries of the various boards met
on Monday, and arranged their reports
for the boards. On Tuesday morning
the various boards met. Missions,
Christian Education, Publications, Min
isters’ Relief, Evangelism, and others
were in session until Wednesday nij^’-''
Their reports were ready for the (a.
eral Board on Thursday morning.
The important changes occurred iA
the field secretaries of the Board of
Christian Education. Dr. H. Shelton
Smith, Field Secretary of Administra
tion and Leadership Training, resigned
his work "with the Board. He has ac
cepted a position with the Internation
al Sunday School Council as Education
al Secretary. Hermon Eldredge has
given up his work at Field Secretary
of Young People’s Work, and will take
the work which Dr. Smith has left va
cant. Mr. Eldredge, however, will con
tinue to edit the young people’s lit

to make Mr. A. F. Chase, who has been

ation for a number of years. Circula
tion Manager for all the publications
of the Christian Church. Mr. Chase is
well fitted for this position.
Dr. Harper feels that the meeting in
Dayton was one which speaks well for
the program of the Christian Educa
tion work of the church. “A paid full
time General Secretary would make the
work complete,” he said, “and we are
going to have that before long.”
EMORY AND HENRY SATURDAY
A very unfortunate happening oc
