The Boosters’ Club continued its suc
cessful tour of the state by giving pro
grams of high order a|^ Siler City anfT
HillsboTo. I
At Siler City, Thursday, February 25,
the club entertained one of the largest
audiences of the year. The large au
ditorium of the new school building was
filled to its capacity and many were
not able to find seats. ,The Boosters, a?
though they were amateurs, conducted
themselves like pjofessional performers.
A new feature of the program was
the spice afforded by the recently or
ganized string orchestra composed of
Stanley, Thomas, EoTd and Holland.
Professor Barney, as usual, delivered
an interesting address. Leon Williams,
member of the expression department,
brought both laughter and tear? from
the audience by his power of speech.
The C[uartet was go'od and shared a
large part of the applause of the even
ing. The gym quartet, although it
possessed a new member, worked like
au oiled machine and afforded much
pleasure for those present.
The people of Siler City opened their
ho'mes to the Boosters and the entire
membership enjoyed the kind hospitali
ty of these good people. The friend
ships and acquaintances made there
will long be remembered.
On Thursday evening, March 5, the
club journeyed to Hillsboro. There it
was greeted by G. A. Brown, Elo'n ’22,
who made every one feel at home. Tiie
members seemed at their best.
Mr. Ford, a new member, gave the
program a good send off by playing
“The Rosary” on his Hiwaiian guitar.
Mr. Stanley then accompanied him and
two guitar duets followed: “Let the
Rest of the World Go By” and “One
Two-Three, Four, Medley.”
A new feature of the evening was a
vocal duet by Messrs. Sharpe & Stanley
“Our Yesterdays’’ this was very much
appreciated by those present.
Another number which “brought
down the house” was the vocal and in
strumental duet by Messrs. Stanley and

Thu vesper service Sunday afternoon
was the largest attended service yet
held this season. Miss Nolaji demon
strated even to a greater extent in this
service her ability at the organ inas
much as this was a request program.
Even though the program was made
up of request selections Miss Nolan
had so grouped these nutrfbers as to cen
ter around a central theme of “Evil
Overcome by Coo'd.”
Five groups of selections were used,
“Souvenir,” “Spring Song,” and
“March of the Magi Kings,” in the
first. The second group consisted of
“Serenade,” “Rosary,” and “March
(Tanhauser). ’ ’
In the fourth group Miss Lydia Berk
ley assisted at the piano in “Kam-
meriai Ostrow” by Rubenstein, which
was especially beautiful. The service
was ended with the old familiar hymn
“I Need Thee Every Hour.”

Senior Class Dedicates Year Book to
People of County in Appreciation
of Loyalty. W. E. Sharpe’s
Picture in Book.
The Senior Class of Elon College has
decided to dedicate the .192.3 Phipsicli
to the citizens of Alamance County.

gotten out by the Senior class of the
collegc. ft is customary to dedicate
the book each year to' some person, or

C. He is at the head of the Alamance
Insurance and Real Estate Company
and is well known throughout the
state as a man of rare business ability
Mr. Sharpe was elected to head the
campaign for funds in Alamance county
when the citizens decided to help
build Elon after the disastrous fire in
January 1923. Under the leadership of
Mr. Sharpe, Alauuince county pledged
$100,000 and gave Elon the beautiful
administration building, Alamance Hall
The class felt that it would dedicate the
book to the citizens of the cownty and
have Mr. Sharpe’s picture in the book
as representing the county. The stu
dents appreciate what the citizens of
the county have done for them in mak
ing this building possible. They an
especially grateful to Mr. Sharpe for
his efforts in Elon’s behalf. Mr. Sharpe
is one of Elon’s best friends.
The following article was clipped
from the “Trinity Chronicle” and is a
sj)londid suggestion to not only the
school for which it was written, but for
otlier sohoG'ls as well where ther^ is no
organized systenx of electing cheer
W’e have a wonderful spirit, but we
do not have an organized system of
electing cheer leaders and therefore do
not have the best cheer leaders. They
should be experienced, but for tho most
our cheer leaders have had to start out
without any knowledge at all of Icad-
ng cheers. The article follows below.
Students give this some thought ami
pull fo-r organized cheer loading.
This article is presented to the under
graduates and college community merri
ly by way of suggestion, but 1 trust
that it may be taken as a piece of con*
structive criticism. It would take no
argument in my opinion to cofnvince one ,
that there is something radically wrong
with the cheer leading situation at this
institution. It seems to me that one of
the best ways to build a true university
spirit and to add to’ the prestige of our
school is to have an active group of
cheer leaders ever on the alert to offer
the leadership which this student body
desires and is now only to’o willing to
In the past we have had no organized,
successful system of electing our cheer
leaders, and as a result we have this
year three men serving in this ca|:)acity
who have had no previous training ar
experience before this year. These men,
laboring under difficulties, have thrown
their shoulders to the wheel and merit
the praise and further co-operation O’f
the college community.
Other colleges and universities, how
ever, have a systematic method of elect
ing their cheer leaders from year to
year and allowing them to “grow up
wi'th their jobs.” The head cheer lead
er at these institutions is regarded as
one of the leading figures on the cam
pus, and it is indeed a mark of distinc
tion to be chosen for this responsible
position. I dare say the head cheer
leader in his oflScial capacity can do r.s
much toward moulding school spirit as
any other one man on the campus among
the under graduates.
FurthermoTe, I should think that it
would be a comparatively simple mat
ter to work out and put into operation
a system for electing these cheer lead
ers even before this scho'ol yeur has
ended. I have no direct information
concerning the system used at other
colleges, and no doubt it would be well
