The Spi’ay game was one of the
prettiest games ever ■vritnessed on tlie
local court. The game was clean, fast
and full of pep throughout. There was
tiot a minute of time called out except
between the quarters. There was not
a single substitution made in tlic game.
"The first half ended with Elon leadin
four to two. In the last half the score
^’as tied tliree or four tiines. AVith only
about a minute to play and Spray lead
ing by one point ?\ewnian caged one
fro'm the floor wiiicli gave Elon the
game 11 to 10. Outside of Newman’s
winning sliot the feature of the game
was tlie brilliant work of Huey for
Elon, who caged three from tlie floor
during the game. The team work of
boili teams was beautiful to w'itness.

hy niglit 30 to 18 in the fastest bas
ketball game of the season on the home
floor defeating the Maroon and Gold
team. Both teams w'ere w^ell matched
during the first half of the play, the
score at the end standing 11 to 13.
Our team was not able to hold tlie
pace it set in the initial f)lay and lag
ged behind in the latter part of the
game. State guarded more closely in
the last part, and Elo'ii was not able
to find the basket, while Brown, who
!ame in for Correll after a rest from
play, run four field goals in succession
aud sent the visitors far ahead.
Both teams were fast, ahd the con
test was a hard one from the very
start. State scored first, and it was
anyone’s game until after the second
half was well underway, the score see
sawing between a tie and a two-point
lead for State.
G. Brown was the individual star
scorer for his team. Newman j)layed

Elon took a one-sided contest from
the Atlantic Christian College last night

The visitors scored their first two
points at the beginning of the game
■when Mayfield caged the ball, and the
other two tallies came near the last of
the first half when Baucher succeeded
in getting a fi.eld goal. During the last
iialf the visitors’ chance to score was a
foul shot, which, however, fell short.
The ball was in Elon’s territory all of
the second part of the game.
The contest w'as marked by its slow"-
i^ess. Elon did some nice passing on
the floor, and the w'ork of Newman and

Last Wednesday, January 28, the
Psiphelians gave one o'f the best pro
grams they have given this year. The
first number on the program was a re
port by Miss Kate Strader on the
Greatest Word in the English Language
taken from the World’s W'ork. Miss
Strader said the greatest w’ord was
“Service”—that faith, hope, love,
charity, and friendship are all embodied
in this o'ne word. She also stated that
the road to service leads to a fuller,
Next, Miss Ruby Rowland gave a re
port, also taken from the World’s
Work, on Sex Jealousy in Politics. She
said that tlie men felt that the women
w^ere not capable of taking part in j)oli-
tics and feared that by so doing they
would lose the quality of womanliness.
On the other hand she stated that the
women had to abide by the laws and
therefore they had a right to share in
making them. The report was very in
The third number was Humor, by
Miss Esther Bro'okshire. Miss Brook
shire’s jokes were well selected and
she gave them in such a manner that
they were very amusing.
Miss Mamie Sockwell gave a reading,

Sockwell’s reading w^as given with very
much expression and she impersonated
the negro character splendidly.
The next on program was Current

Upon being informed by Dr. Few
that I had this place on the program.
I addressed a letter to' the Faculty
^tanagers of Athletics of the male col
leges represented at this meeting and
asked them to let me have their views
on the following four questions:
1. AVhat ideals cause the alumni to
be of a disadvantage to athletics?
2. What ideals cause the alumni' to
be of an advantage to athletics?
3. JIow may the alumni embarrass
4. llow may the alumni assist an
institution in its athletic program?
Tu the answers tlie brethren have
strengthened me in my opinion of the
relations of an institutions’ alumni and
its athletic program. I am going to-
pass on to you the essence of their
The following are considered as some
of the reasons why the alumni may be

The value of money is overestimateiVT
The athletic standards set up by the
alumni are those of the past. The al

one to twenty j^ears ago. Since the old

standards proposed are those of years

from wiiat it ought to be today. I dare
say the alumni giving us the most con

The class games’ conti-uue to' furnish

This game played last Wednesday
was a thriller from start to finish. It
was hard fought throughout with first
one team and then the other taking the
lead. The first half ended w'ith the
Sophs leading by one point. The see-
ong half was a see-saw affair. W'ith
the Sophomores leading by a few’’ points
and only a minute or so to play, jSIc-

This contest occurred on Friday and
was one of the best of the scries. It
was a slow game in the first half but
this slcAvness was forgotten by the
speed showu in the last half. The
Jnuiors managed to maintain a slight
lead during most of the game, although
the,'Score -was tied several times. The
fe.ature of the game was the uncanny
ability of Jo'hnson, of the Junior team,
to locate the basket at long range.. He
was the outstanding player for his
team, securing five lield goals and two
fouls. The Freshmen staged a rally
right at the last that threatened to
wipe out the lead of their opponents,
but the wliistle prevented this and left
the Juniors with the game 18 to 17.
