PRIZE OF $1.00

Fighting Christians Battle
Demon Deacons To 0-0 Score
ALL HAIL COACH WALKER who won the prize
IN THE LAST ISSUE?
The Proverbial Dope Bucket Was
Upset, Mashed and Squashed.
Every Man Rallied to Zack Walker’s
Elon College.—All hail to Coach
Walker, and his fighting Christians.
This is one time that the Demon
Deacons had more than a ‘‘limbering
up exercise,” as their college paper
put it. It was a gruelling battle from
start to finish, with Elon on its op
ponent's four yard line and first down
when the final whistle blew.
“Zack” Walker, through his able
leadership, forced the Deacons to play
defensive ball throughout the greater
part of the game. “Doodle” Daniels
with his driving and tackling was one
of the stellar performers of the game.
Every man played the game, each com
ing into his share of glory; for glory
it is. because it is the first time in many
moons that Elon has held Wake Forest
to a tie score.
The Elon team was given a hearty
welcome on their return to the college
after the game, with speech making and
bonfire by the students, and that game
has been the main topic of conversa-
tion on the campus since. Not since
football games began to be played be
tween the Baptists and Christians has
Elon accoTuplished the feat of holding
this strong oi>ponent scoreless.
The Elon students appreciate the fine
tribute Coach Baldwin paid their team
following the game when he stated:
•“The teams which play the fighting
Christians this season may expect to
find a different team from that which
has represented Elon in the past,” and
also the compliment paid their Coach
Walker by the Deacon mentor when he
praised him for building up a team with
the fighting spirit that was displayed
on Go're field against the Baptists.
Every man on the Elon team looked
good in that game, and played con
sistently fine football. However, the

The Alamance County Artist Course

auspices of the Music Lovers' Clubs of
Elon, Burlington and Graham, is going
to be the most exceptional ever. Artists
of notable talent have been employed

high to* be missed.

unusually fine voices make up the per
sonnel of this noted organization, as
sisted by Miss Florence Reed, pianist

ist, will be heard to advantage in solo
and obligato numbers. She is a bril
liant artist of wide experience.
Rudolph Reuter, pianist, will appear

may be reckoned as one of the finest
evenings of music during the course.

real music and doing justice to true
poetry. There is intellectual distinc

Those concerts following this will be
given by Max Rosen, Marjorie Max
well and Arthur Kraft.
Among the recognized great artists
of the world, Max Rosen is distinguish
ed among the violinists by his posses
sion, to an unusual degree, of the power
to convey the emotional content of a
great composition. From a background
of sincere and convincing musicianship,
reinforced by a brilliant and secure
technique, Max Rosen projects and in

A bunch of happy girls met in front
of West Dormitory Tuesday afternoon,
September twentieth, at four o^'clock.
Several yells were given and then the
crowd moved off in a long line. *The
girls were leaving for the first Y. W.
C. A. picnic of the year.
The line moved up the highway and
over a fine ccmntry road to a splendid

often that the girls get to go to

who won, but every one was ready to
