TEAM GIVEN STREKUOUS
DRILL FOR WAKE FOREST
Coach Walker has been driving liis
men a terrific pace for the past three
days, in order to shape them for the
fray -with the Demon Deacons next
Saturday. The team, as a whole, is
badly bruised and battered, as a result
of the battle with State. Five of the
regular men will be out of the line-up
for the coming game Saturday.
The squad will suffer a severe loss
for the next few days in practice, on
account of Branner, Newman, Bock,
♦ind Captain Jones being out of the
^ine of scrimmage. Branner has a
^'severely sprained ankle, Newman has
the ligaments torn in his life shoulder.
Back has a deep gash in the top of his
head, and Caj^tain Jones is nursing a
game ankle, hurt early in the season.
Coach Walker is endeavoring to
strengthen tlie team in the defense at
tack on forward passes, in which de-
pnrtment of the game Elon showed up
badly at Raleigh, when State complet
ed so many passes. On account of the
lightness of the te^^ni, he is drilling
more on the offense than defense. What
Elon lacks in weight they hope to gain

LOSE FIRST GAME OF YEAR
Wolfpack Forced to Fight Hard
To Beat Elon 39-0.
ELON PUTS UP STIFF BATTLE
Eloji College—‘ ‘ Elon College. Little
Christians, stood up and traded punches
with the big bucks of State college
last Friday afternoon,” so states one
of the big daily papers. Those who
saw the game heartily agree that Elon
put up a good scrap to come out of the
little end of the horn by a score of 39
to 0. and that State shows a team much
superior to that of last year.
From Elon’s team, there was no out
standing players. Each man fought
g;imely to the last. Branner suffered a
sprained ankle soon after the game
started, and had to be taken out. Bock
had a bad cut on the top of his head
near the end of the game. These two
Occidents were the only serious ones;
but as a wliole, the whole team w'as
battered and bruised, on account of be
ing so heavily outweighed.

The Department of Fine Arts of Elon

tlirough the exhibits.
Miss Newman graduated from Elon
College in 1916 with the degree of
Pli. B., and has been a graduate student
of Columbia University for the past
three years, there she has studied un

(By Miss Newman)
“The Department of Fine Arts has
made an excellent start this year. Our
department is probably the least known
of all in the college, due probably to
the fact that art is not compulsory in
many schools of the South; consequent
ly. few' students realize its value or
It is not to be supposed tliat every
student of Fine Arts will become a pro
fessional artist any more than that
every student in the Science depart
ment will become a scientist, or every
student of Bible, a preacher. Many
take the course for the pretty and use
ful things they can make.
Basket weaving will be given this
year, together with painting in oils,
water colors and pastels, China paint
ing, painting on cloth, such as shawls,
scarfs. X)illows, etc., printing and wood
The studio is open daily from 8:00
to 5:00. Visitors are always welcomed^
and the students take pride in showing
them their finished work.”
