Emory and Henry was defeated on
tlie gridiron liere Saturday by Elon by
a 6-0 score, in an exceedingly poorly
played game, fumbles and a large ma
jority of incompleted forward passes
marring the contest.
Elon was master of the field through
out, and were never in danger of being
scored upon except in the last four
minutes of play when a long forward
pass was completed by Emory and
Henry, Lawrence to Viall. Viall, how
ever, after a pretty run, fumbled the
ball on Elon’s 10-yard line, Elon recov
ering. Elon punted out of danger. At
all other periods Elon was on the ag
A total of 3.3 forward passes were
attempted by both teams, only 11 of
which were completed. Of this num
ber the home team failed on 13 out
of 19 attempts. The visitors were held
to three first downs from scrimmage,
and one as a result of a forward pass.
Twelve first downs were registered for

Three first downs in succession put

held for downs. The quarter ended
with the ball on Elon’s 30-yard line.
In the second quarter eight forward
passes were attempted by Elon but only
two were completed. Kirkland made
a 15-yard run in this quarter. The half

The last quarter began with a rush.
The Emory and Henry squad was show

game. They made several gains around
the end and through the line. It was
in this final quarter that Emory and
Henry’s only real chance to score came.
This was the result of a forward pass
■v^hich, with a ]>retty run, put the ball
on Elon’s 10-yard line, only to lose it
by fumbling. Elon quickly punted out
of danger and the game ended with

Interest on the Elon campus has for
the past few weeks centered on the
Trinity-Elon game at Greensboro this
coming Saturday. These two teams,
liave not met each other for two years
now, and keen rivalry is felt among
the students of the institutions these
teams represent. i Special trains from
Durham and Elon College will trans-
X'ort the students to Greensboro on
Two years ago Elon held Trinity to
a scoreless tie ib the football tilt.
While it is generally conceded that
Trinity has the stronger team now,
still it appears that Trinity has been
on the back grade since the opening
of her season, and while Elon has made
no spectacular record she has been
steadily improving and will be in the
prime of condition to give Trinity a
battle for grid honors when they meet
on Saturday. Elon will play the game
of her season against the Blue Devils,
and when the game is over, no matter
what the score or who wins, Trinity
will understand whence the Elon play
ers received the nickname, ‘‘Fighting
Christians. ’ ’

Message to Student Body.
The regular program of the Philolo
gian Literary Society was postponed
on Monday night. The society gave its
attention to some very important mat
ters which came up in the business ses
One of the most important was the
matter of furnishing a room in Beth
lehem College, Wadley, Alabama. This
college which opened for the first ses
sion this fall is asking individuals and
organizations to give an amount of
money necessary to furnish a room, the
room to bear the name of the person
or organization furnishing it. The Phi-
lologian Society decided to furnish one
room in this college which, will bear
the name of the society. M. W. Hook,
president of the college, is a former
member of the Pliilologian Literary
Another matter of importance was
the election to honorary membership
in the society of the following per
sons: Dean Louise Savage; Miss May

ment; Miss Lydia A. Berkley, head of
the piano department; Mrs. Mary B.

At a mass meeting of the Religious
Activities Organization on Sunday cvc-
ring, the students of the College and
a i-iimber of townspeopV enjoyed an
exci llimt addres-j tjy Rev. Lawien-’o C-
Little. Mr. Little is a student of Da-
^'idson College and is Young People’s
Secretary of the Methodist Protestant
Cintrch in North Carolina.
A song service preceded the addroH:s.
Several hymns were sung, and O. C.
Johnson sang a solo, Sweeter as ti c
Years Go By.”
Tlie subject of Mr. Little’s address
\»as, “Why Christian Endeavor Is.”
Christaan Endeavor, (he ptated, has
grown because of the four great prin
ciples 0/1 which it is based. These are
lov.'ilty tc Christ, loyalty to the church,
fellowship with all of Christ’s people,
and service for Christ.
In discussing loyalty to Christ, Mr.
Little said that the only kind of Chris
tianity that is going to last is the kind
that is not afraid of confession.
Loyalty to the church assumes two
divisions: loyalty to the pastor, anj
loyalty to missions’. He gave as an
illustration of loyalty to the pastor
the “Street Cleaners” club in Roan
oke, Va. The purpose of the club is
to “clean” the streets on Sunday of
all young men who should go to church.
In giving arguments to justify mis
sions, Mr. Little quoted a statement
of William Jcnning Bryan. Bryan has
said that a man who does not believe
in missions can never again say the
Lord’s Prayer or Apostles’ Creed, nor
can he sing the Doxology, because in
each of these there is a reference to
all of the earth or all of God’s people.
Mr. Little further said that everyone
has a part to play in helping missions,
if it is nothing more than praying in

It was officially announced on Octo
ber 27 from the President’s office that
two distinguished ^ons tf North Caro
lina, Messrs. B. N. nud J. B. Duke, had
decided to erect the science building
here, which is a part of the rebuilding
program, in memory of their mother.
This announcement has brought 'joy to
all members of the College.
Mrs. Duke, in whose memory Jier sons
have decided to erect this science build
ing, was born in Alamance county on
June 28, 1829. Slie was a member of
the distinguished Roney family of this
county, who have from its earliest
days been prominent in Alamance. Her
maiden name was Artelia Roney. Mrs.
Duke passed to her reward August 20,
1858, and lies buried in her native
county soil, at the Roiiey burying
ground at Haw River.
It is significant that W. H. Trollin-
ger also lies buried in the same cemo*
lerv immediately adjoining tiie grave
of Mrs. Duke. Mr. Trollinger donated
to the College the site for the present
campus, and now the sons of Mrs. Duke
a’-ise as benefactors of the College in
its affliction and erect on the site which
h egavea modern science building.

Building ia the fifth of the buildings in
the rebuilding program for Elon neces
sitated by the fire of January 18. This
building is to be 120 feet long, 64 fecft
wide, three stories high, and with base
ment. The first floor is to be given
over entirely to physics, lecture room
rnd laboratories; the second floor is
assigned to biology and geology, and
the third is for the chemical depart
The building is so constructed that
120 pupils in each department can be
on duty at the same tim«. The archi
tect, Herbert B. Hunter, in making the
plans for the building, was assisted by
Professors Brannock, Hook and Powell,
and made a careful study of recently
constructed science buildings. It ia
believed that the Artelia Roney Duke
Science Building w’ill readily take rank
among the most efficient college science
buildings in the country.
For a generation the Duke brothers
have been signal friends of Elon Col
lege. When the Administration Build
ing was burned on January 18 a tele
gram was sent to them giving the sad
intelligence of the fact, and immedi
ately they wired $5,000 each in the
rebuilding program. Now they have
decided to enable the College to com
plete its rebuilding program at this
time by contributing the science build
