’ Caacli Corboys nieii jourjieyed to
Isleigl) last Thursdjiy, fresh fi-om an
lir tight game with Wake Forest, aud
ibigh hopes ot holding the heavy hit-
jsg State uine to a close score. Many
^dents went along with tlie team, by
ray of the “JHop-it ’’ bus line, expcet-
jg to witness a close and exciting
puie.
The beginning o'f the first frame was
ja manner that seemed to point to the
^tificatioii of these hopes. Two of
fete's sluggers had gone back to their
tspective seats on the bench when
"Bed’’ Johnson’s line drive to' center
jfld was muffed by Slangiiter. This in-
fldem was not in itself one of such
|reat importance, but it happened to be
ke key log under an avalanche of hits
ud rmis. Wlien six tallies liad been
blked Up prowler went in to relieve
Jogleniaii. This cliaiige served as a
leek for alxmt three iiuiings, but the
jeat game Fowlor pitched at Wake
hrest two days before soon began to
tew niul he retired, at the end of five
idathird innings, in favor of “Tobe’’
^Tutclifield. But even this did no't serve ,
lapennnnent check on a team that!
id suddenly gone hitting mad, and
If game ended with State sitting on
ielarge end of a 17-0 score.
The feature of the game was the con-
istent hitting of State’s team. McTver

Tliere was, for a go'od wliile, some

torn down last year and makesliift seats
were used at tlie base ball games last

Tiie program for the evening was ren
dered in an interesting maimer. The
uunil)ers appearing were as follows:
Poem e)ititlel ‘‘Old ^Prof* Dickson
Dies,*’ by H. Richardson. The selectimi
contains some excellent sentiment and
was made impressive to the audience by
the splendid style in which it was pre
sented by the speaker.
Humor, by L. V. W^atson. “Doc”
in his unique manner amused the so
ciety very much with some “peppy’’
bits of wit. One might well brand this
worthy senior as quite a huniorist.
Current Events, by Atkins Clark. Mr.
Clark brought to the society some up-
to-date current news both national and
international in nature.

PHILOLOOIAN PROGRAM
ONE OF GREAT INTEREST
Debate on the Merits of Co-operative
Marketing Results in a Decision
for the Affirmative.
Last Friilay evening Elon and Lenoir-
Khyne held the last debate of a three
year contract between the two schools.
Both schools sent their affirmative teams
away from home and the affirmative
teams of both schools lost their deci
sions unanimously. This debate was
also the third and last inter-collegiate
debate in Mhich Elon w’ill participate
this year. It was, how'^ever. the first de
bate this year in w’hich Elon has won a
decision, cithei’ at ho'me or away.
Elon’s negative team, w’hich debated
at home was composed of Messrs. S. C.
Deskins and J. X. Denton. The affirma
tive team, w'hich debated at Lenoir, was
composed of Messrs. E. C. Brady and
Howard Richardson.
The query for the debate was as fol
lows: Resolved, that the proposed
amendment to the Federal constitution,
])ermitting the regulation of child labor,
should be adopted.
The issues of the debate seemed to- re
volve around the affirmative’s conten
tion that the state laws had not justified
themselves, because they had failed to
remedy conditions. The affirmative
then based its contention for national
child labor laws on the fact that the
two previous enactments of congress,
which had beeii declared unconstitution
al, were fair examples of what might
be expected in case cengress w^ere al-

Being Chosen as Best for the
Evening.
In a short snappy meeting last Thurs
day nigiit the Pliilologian Literary So
ciety had another very good program.
In an interesting account of a recent
rabbit hunt, T. F. Wright ])ointed out
some of the disadvantages of good wire
fences. He showed that they are de
trimental in that they impede the traf
fic of hunters and dogs while the little
rabbit can easily get thru and thread
his way thru some impenetrable thicket
to freedom before his pursuers find an
opening. Like many another good
“preacher” Wright appreciates the
great out-’o-doors and can get great
pleasure from a day thus spent. Then
he can tell others about it, too. for his
story was so well given that it won for
him the honors as best orator of the
program.

of Burns, showeil a few of the things
