TO COLLEGE BOOK CLOB
Subject “Beautifying the Town and
the Home.” Many Interested.
Paul C. Lindley, of the J. YanLindley
Company of Greensboro, was a speaker
before the Elon College Book Club here
He addressed the members of the
Club and the citizens of the town on
the subject of “Beautifying the Town
and the Home.” Great interest was
evidenced in the subject, and for some
time after the lecture was over Mr.
Lindley talked individually with the
members about their “growing” prob
The address was given in the Whit
ley Auditorium Building at the college,
and Mr. Lindley was introduced by
President W. A. Harper. Mr. Lindley
is president O'f the J. Van Lindley Com
pany, florists and has shown a great
interest in Elon College. His company
lias given very liberally to the beauti
fying of Elon’s campus. They are to
give shrubbery for the entire campus
and will send men here from their plant
to take charge of the placing it. Tlie
community and whole student body ap
preciate this gift.
The student who designed the ques
tions and submitted them to the fac
ulty for an examination last week in
Maroon and Gold will be disappointed
if they expected to catch the faculty
unprepared. Two members have already
stood the “exam” and their papers
follow'. We have graded the papers
but will not publish the grades until
all have had an opportunity to pass
judgment on them. We have other
papers to follow^ and we hope that since
it is started every faculty member will
avail himself of this opportunity of ex
pressing his opinion on these questions
that have been submitted. The ques
tions were run in last week’s paper,
but for fear you have lost your copy
we are giving the questions again so
you can refer to them in reading the
articles. We appreciate this interest
sliown by the faculty.—The Editor.
The questions follow:
(1) Do you take students’ outside
activities into consideration w'hen grad
(2) Do you believe in final examiua-
(3) What mark of progress in the|
College, outside the,construction of the
new buildings, has been most significant
in the past five years?
(4) Bo you endorse college social
clubs? Tf so why? : If not why?
(5) Do you co-ojierate with the stu
dents to the best of your ability?
(6) Do you rea''-ze that a student
has four or five other courses besides
(7) What, in your opinion, is the
mo'st outstanding cause of flunking?

(1) Most certainly we should take
students’ outside activities into consid
eration when grading, but of course we
cannot grade accordingly. Would it be
fair to give one student A who' did
little work in your department, but
spent much time at Social Service, Ee
liglous Education or athletics; and to
grade another student the same who
took no part in outside activities but
spent much time worlciug for you?
But, outside activities are the great
est part of College life. Without them
'wo would have a narrow brand of edu
cation, Nothing adds to the students’
mentalitv or physique as vigorous
sports, as religious or social activities;
l^'t there is time and pdace for all
these; they should not interfere w'ith
regular class work or study hours.
Athletics are to be excepted, if ex
ceptions are in line, but not considered
in grading. One can not help but sym
pathize with the one on the regular
team who must be absent from class for
several do,vs or even a week at a time.
He represents the whole school, we are
behind him, wo are proud of him, but
we cannot do his class work much as
we would like to, neither can we lower
our standard of scholarship in selecting

Dr. W. A. Harper returned last Wed

Field Workers and college presidents

Christian Churches and the College pro

(3) The new buildings alone answer
tliat, they promote progress, they
awaken a desire to be inside. The
growing interest in religious education
is outstanding. Tn my opinion the way
in which the young ladies made use of
tlieir time out of class room is far above
the girls of five or ten years ago. I
find them always active. Frankly, I
admit I see little of what is often
called loafing. We must relax, w’e must
exercise, w’’c must play. Students whom
you may think are loafing on the cam
pus are probably out for the first time
that day for exercise. Students who
mav appear to be hanging about the
stores, probably have business there.
Do not we of the faculty also appear to
them to be loafing at times or just
hanging around? Wander into the room
of any girl yon will find her sewing,
studying, writing or reading rather than
wasting time. They are an ambitious
crowd, always eager to do everything
