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.

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 (Continued on Page Three) nmny years the students have longed for ii gramlstaiKl on CoiDer Fiehl. Tliere was, for a go'od wliile, some l.leaoliers on tlie field but they were torn down last year and makesliift seats were used at tlie base ball games last spring. A good many of us were be ginning to wonder if we w'ould have to 'iew the games this spring from the same seats,, but now we find that cob- ditums have changed at the old field. Master Monday we found a neiv grandstand, from wliich we foul.I wateh Atlantic Christian College bite the dust.

It is expected that wo will have mov able bleachers for football season, as they would be in keeping with the uew grandstand. e.0.B.BiQyETFI1Tli CLIMAX TO BRILLIANT SPIIIlie SOCIAL SEASON GENE POBTEIl fEATUflES Popular Author is Subject for Evening and Judges Decide in Favor cf Misses Horn, Grissom and Hall.

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- (Continued on Page Three) PSyKALEON PROGRAM IS UP TO OSUALSTANDARD Program is Well Rendered and Results in Misses Wright, Elder, and Banks 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. Mr. Thompson in a sketch of the life of Burns, showeil a few of the things (Continued on Page Three) The Psykaleon Literary Society met Monday evening for its regualr weekly session.
