SENIORS FLUNK FACULTY
IN BASKETBALL CONTEST
*The basketball games between the
classes began liere last Thursday with
fl game between the Juniors and Seniors.
On Friday the Freshman-Sophomore
game took i>lace and on Monday of this
^eek the final game for the champion
ship was played between the Freshmen
find Juniors. These two teams had de-
ieated their rival classes during the con-
lest and were entitled to play each other
in the final game. The Freshmen won
by tlie score of IT to S.
The games were the most hotly con
tested of , any class games seen here in
a long time. The teams all played well
in spite of the fact that they had prac
ticed together but very little. The games
also brought to light some promisin;
looking material among the new men.
The game started with a rush with
Hobert Brown of the Juniors getting
away with a field goal. JIcAdams soon
tied the score by caging one for the
■Seniors. From then on the game was
tit for tat for the first half which end-
ed with the Juniors leading. 9 to 5.
The second half found the Seniors
5)ack with the real fight and for a time
it looked as if they would overtake their
opponents. However, the Juniors to«k
a longer lead, which they held for the
remainder of the game. The final score
was IT to 12. Brown and McAdams
were the best for their respective teams,
the former getting three field goals and
three fouls, and the latter two field goals
and one foul. Brown's goals were caged
from the center of the floor and were
l)eautiful shots. The line-up follows:
Juniors: Robert Brown, 3 field goals,
3 fouls: Braxton. 2 field goals; Kirkland
1 field goal: Atkinson 1 field goal; Hi-
fltt. Seniors: McAdams 2 field goals,
1 foul: Hook 2 field goals; Barker 1
ifield goal; Barker 1 foul goal; Ilainer.
This game was played on Friday after
noon and was the best of the series.
The teams were about evenly matched
and it was battle royal from start to
finish. The game was somewhat rough
•at times, but the teams gave a real ex
hibition of basketball. The teams had
practiced together very little, but there
•was some beautiful team work shown.
The closeness of the game can be noted
t)y the fact that the score was tied and
luntied many times. The teams played
neck and neck until the final few min
utes of play. Voli\a of the I'^reshnian
learn was put out on personal fouls,
and McLeod, substituting for him, caged
^ goal just as the whistle sounded and
brought victory to his team 24 to 23.
The individual honors of the game, aside
from the great work of ISIcLeod at the
“Cntical period, go to Voliva, who with
10 points to his credit, was easily the
■star of the game for the Freshmen.
Alph Brow’n, for the Sophomores, gain
ed 14 of his team's 23 i>oints, besides
showing especially good floor work. The
guarding of Caddell and Gibbs for their
ffespective teams was a feature of the

'riie chapel service Tuesday mornin
was in charge of the Senior Class. Five
Seniors spoke at tliis time.
The general subject was the Honor
System. Doan Hook introduced J, R.
Barker, president of the Student Senate,
who spoke on the honor system among
the boys, !Mr. T^arker said the honor
system was broad enough to apply every
A\here else as well as in the examina
tions. He said the standards of honor
were r.ot as high as they should be and
should be raised.
W. T. Scott, president of the Religious
Activities Organization was the next
speaker. Mr. Scott stated that there
was a different feeling here than at most
colleges. He said if we were not satis
fied here it was because we did not in
vest enough in our college life. He said
we should create a better spirit in our
Miss Alice Weber, president of the
Girls' Council, spoke of the honor sys
tem among the girls. She claimed that
the girls often forget they are on their
honor and do things which violate the
honor system. Miss W^eber said that
it was up to the upper classes to create
a sentiment here that would make the
new classes coming in each year realize
that the honor system is really worth
.T. C. Mann, superintendent of the
College Sunday school, said that we
should not think of the honor system
as a restraint. Mr. Mann spoke for the
Sunday school and he asked how many
would really come to Sunday school or
church on our honor. He claimed that
w’as up to the students to make the
honor system count.
R. H. Gunn, president of C. E., spoke
on life in tlie dormitories among the boys
and how the honor system was applied
:\L L. Patrick spoke on the honor
system in examinations. He pointed out
that unless the students co-operated with,
the faculty that an honor system was
a failure. He told something of the
honor system in the University of "V ir-
ginia, which he attended this summer.
He claimed that they had the oldest
system in the world.
Dean Hook and Dean Louise Savage
each spoke a few words endorsing what
had been said by the speakers on the
The Girls’ Glee Club gave a delightful
concert here on Monday evening. It
was a complete success, and Mr. Green
wood, Glee Club director, deserves special
praise for the admii’able W'ork he has
done in organizing the club. Every num
ber on the program was thoroughly en
joyable. Miss ISIary Graham Law^rence
played the accompaniments.
The first number was an overture,
“Poet and Peasant.’' by the orchestra.
The orchestra was made up of Miss Della
Cotten, piano; Miss Mary Stanley, first
violin; Miss Allie Malone, second violin;
and Mr. Ben Everette, cornet.
The chorus then sang a group of three
songs : “A Lullaby,”’ by Mozart, “Last
Night,” and DeKoven’s “Oh. Promise
Miss Jennie Gunter read “Billy Brad
and the Apple,” by Ellis Parker Butler.
The reading was followed by a medley
of old songs sung by eleven girls. This
medley consisted of parts of the follow
ing songs, “Juanita, “My Old Kentucky
Home,” “There was a Lady,” “Bulldog
on the Bank,” “Old Folks at Home,”
and “Old Black Joe.”’ As an encore
“I’ve Been Working on the Railroad,’'
Following this there was another beau
tiful selection by the orchestra, and Miss
Gunter gave two humorous readings:
“Over the Telephone,” and “At the Soda
Fountain,’” by Walter Ben Hare. Miss
Gunter showed marked talent in her in
terpretation of these readings, the first
in negro dialect and the second an im
personation of a little child. As an en
core she read “Little Fly on the Wall.”
The second group of songs by the
chorus w^as made up of “Blow, Soft
Winds” “Kentucky Babe.” (a planta
tion song) and “Wondrous Night.”
One of the most delightful numbers
on the pirogram was a vocal solo by
Miss Florence Fishei'. with a violin
obligata by Miss Stanley. Miss Fisher
held her audience spell-bound with “Fid
dle and I,” and sang it a second time
as an encore.
Following this solo the chorus sang
its last group of songs with Miss Fisher
doing the recitative. “Heavenly Aida”
and “Carry Me Back to Old Virginny,"
composed this group. “Heres to Dear
Old Elon,” ’was the final number.
