November 18, 1925, 4:00 P. M.
Under a deluge of sweeping cud
runs, tcrritic line pluiiges, and a bullet
like aerial attack, the invading Emorv
and Henry griddcvs were swept to de
feat last Saturday ou Conior Field by
tlie rejuvenated Elon eleven. The score
was 14-0. The Fighting Christians, in
spired by the creditable support of the
Maroon and Gold followers, outclassed
the visitors in every department of the
game. The wearers of the Gold have
at last staged a ccnie-back from their
recent slump to the losing side, and
showing the fight that was witnessed
in the early part of the season trounced
the Emory and Henry crew which had
been doped on even terms to win.
The outstanding feature of the game
was the consistent ground-gaining
which was done by “Dusty*’ Eaub,
fleet-footed halfback. Time and again
the diminutive back swept the ends for
long gains, led by the perfect interfor-
rjf IClcM) backs. During the
game Dusty baffled the Emory and
Henry team by running ends, plunging
iind punting. Dusty amassed a grand
total of 201 yards gained while he was
thrown for a loss only once. At quar-

The Virginians, however, were unable
to make the necessary yardage in the
Elon territory to place themselves in
a scoring position. In. the line Hessing*

It was an ideal day for the contest

played a clean game of football, few'

The game play by play:
Emory and Henry kicked off to
Elon’s 20 yard line, Coggins returning
the ball to Elon’s 40 yard line. On
the first play Raub failed to gain
through the line, carrying the ball out
of bounds. Raub skirted right end for
30 yards and a first down. Coggins
followed with a 13 yard line plunge
which netted a second successive first
down. Raub was thrown for a 2 yard

THE PRESIDENT’S THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION, 1925
Thursday will be a full day for all
Elonites. Each year the steps of the
Alumni turn toward the scene of former
happy days and they begin to arrive
‘‘on the Hill” eagerly seeking that old
fellowship of school chums whom they
have known and undergraduates whom
they will meet. Once more Elon’s halls
are filled with “old familiar faces.”
Some will see the Newer and Greater
Elon for the first time and their first
feelings of sorrow at the absence of the
old Administration Building will slow
ly but surely give place to joyful hearts*
and thankfulness as tliey go through
the new buildings and see the giant
forward stei:is of Elon’s progress.
On this, the greatest home-coming
day of the year, the Philologians are
hosts. They are planning a joyful visit
for Elon’s friends. With the Thanks
giving service in Whitley Hall, the
Elon-Wake Forest game on Comer
Field, followed by the “Phi” banquet,
the day is well filled. As a fitting
climax for such a day, the entertain
ment committee of this Society, has
selected the play, “A Marriage of
Convenience,” by Alexander Dumas.
One of the cleverest of Dumas’ pro
ductions, “Marriage of Convenience,”
is a comedy of French life, during the
reign of Louis XV. LcMarechal de
Candle, leaves instructions in his last
Will and Testament for his son to
marry his cousin, whom lie has never
seen. The family treasury will fall to
this couple provided the will is carried
out and the general, another uncle, is
deputed to see that the. instructions are
followed. The wedding takes place but
the Comvtesse is in love with another
man, Monsieur de Valchos; the Coute de
Candle is also in love with a Marquise.
Dumas handles this plot with his usual
skill and the result is a very popular
An added feature of the evening will
be an instrumental quartet consisting
of two violins, cello and piano, arrang

The seascn approaches when, in accordance with a long-established and respected
custc'm, a day is set apart to give thanks to Almighty God for the manifold blessings which
His gracious and benevolent providence has bestowed upon us as a nation and as individuals.
We have been brought with safety and honor througli, another year and, through the
generosity of nature, He has blessed us with resources whose potentiality in wealth , is
almost incalculable; we are at peace at home and abroad; the public health is good; we
have been undisturbed by pestilence or great catastrophe; our harvests anc^ our industries
liave been rich in productivity; oiir commerce spreads over the whole world, and labor
has been well rewarded for its remunerative service.
As we have grown and prospered in material things, so also should we progress in
moral and spiritual things. We are a God-fearing people, who should set ourselves against
evil and strive for righteousness in living and observing the Golden Rule. We should
from our abundance help and serve those less fortunately placed. We should bow in
gratitude to God for His many favors.
Now, therefore I, Calvin Coolidge, President of the Tinted States, do hereby set
apart Thursday, the 26th day of November, next, as a day of general thanksgiving and
prayer, and X recommend that on that day the people shall cease from their work and in
their homes or in their accustomed places of worship, devoutly give thanks to the Almighty
lor the many and great blessings they have received and to; seek His guidance that they
may deserve a continuance of His favor.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United
States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington, this twenty-sixth day of October, in the Year of
our Lord, One Thousand Nine Hundred and Twenty-five, and of the Independence of the
United States of America, the One Hundred and Fiftieth.
