Dr. Ned Faucett Brannock, better
known as “Uncle Ned,” is the head
of the Chemistry Department of Elon
College. Dr. Brannock has the most
jiiodern and up-to-date chemical labora
tory in the state.
“Uncle Ned” has been our chemistry
professor for several years. Through
honest effort and hard struggling he has
built up a department that is second to
none in the South.
The change from a dark basement
laboratory in the Alumni Building, to
the new Duke Science Building, where
there is every modern instrument and
apparatus, has increased the prestige
and standing of the chemistry depart
ment a thousand fold. There are now-
over a hundred students enrolled.
FACIURERS HOLD SECOND
Coach Walker’s Fighting Christiaus
were unable to fathom the powerful at
tack of the Davidson Wildcats, and
came out of the grueling game at the
little end of a 27-0 score. It was a big
day for Davidson, celebrating their
home coniijig week and first game at
home. Monk Younger’s Wildcats
have a fighting name, and it seems as if
they are again going to win the covet
ed state cliampionship.
“Zac” Walker. Branner, and Wilson
were the outstanding players for Elon.
Captain Dick Grey's spectacular and
all-around playing was the the feature
of the game.
The Elon Christians played brilliant
ly, showing a strong and diversified of
fence that gained a lot of yardage. It
was the aerial attack that threatened
to put Elon over the goal a number

Brunner came to us last year from
Dover, Delaware. His presence on the
flank position of our team caused op
posing “backs” much worry. This
season “Kid” was injured during the
first minute of play against State, and
not until Saturday was he able to play
true t(v form. We may expect some
brilliant work from him during the re
mainder of this season.
Elon has a real wide-awake Minis
terial association this year. It is com
posed of twenty-five ministerial stu-
lent3, representing five denominations.
The association meets the first Friday
'evening in each month, at seven-thirty
and transacts any business that may
•come before it. A special program is
given at each monthly meeting. This
program is not only interesting but in*
.atructive, and inspirational as well. The
I members all look forward to the time
■of the meeting and are always anxious
to take part in the program.
The Ministerial association will be
•glad to accept invitations from any
iiearby churches to conduct one or more .

CHRISTIAN REAR CATS TO
MEET CAMPRELL COLLEGE
Secon([ Annual Merchants’ and Man
ufacturers’ Exposition is being held in
Burlington this week, beginning Mon
day and lasting tlirough Saturday, Oc*
tober 17-22. This exposition, held in the
Williamson Building next to Belk-
Stevens’ store, was instituted last year
and proved to be such a success that
the officials decided to stage it again
this year. Thousands of people last
year visited the free exhibit of the
many niajuifactured and retail products
of Burlington and Alamance county.
There were many displays O'f clothes,
food, and other commodities; booths of
furniture companies, insurance and real
estate companies and. of banks; a com
plete automobile show; a display of
coffins; a motion picture exhibition;
and best of all a booth occupied by
exliibits and pictures of work and life
at Elon College and featured by an
Elon night. Numerous side attractions
were furnished and the whole exposi
tion was entertaining and instructive.
The exposition this year promises to
be as good or better than the one last
year. Many attractive booths are on
display and among them will be found
some of our advertisers in the Maroon,
and Gold. On the right immediately
after entering will be found the exhi
bits of Alamance Laundry Co., the
Morris Plan Bank, and the Central
Loan & Trust Co. The attractively
furnished booth of the Burlington
Chamber of Commerce greets you on

Regular Team Gets Rest.
Regardless of the inclement weather
Coach Walker has his charges out on
Comer field going through their paces.
The first string team will have a rest
next Saturday while the Bear Cats go
to Campbell College.
On account of rain Monday the first
team was given a lay-off. After the
severe scratching that the Champion
Wildcats gave the'Fighting Christians,
they were deserving a lay-off.
There will be fifteen men to- go to
Campbell College as follows: Harring
ton, Stevenson, Foster, Walker, Har
mon, “Monk” Alexander, Dofflenieyer,
Efird, Coggins, Newman, Jackson. Mer

On October the fourth at Burlington,
the Atwater-Kent radio audition was
held in the ball room of Hotel Ala
mance. Mrs. Herbert W. Coble was the
chairman for Burlington, and she was
very much pleased with the enthusiasm
with which the audition was received.
IMiss Lucy Boone, a student of Elon,
and a pupil of Miss Fisher, won for
the girls and James Arthur Goins, of
Burlington, a pupil of Gilman F. Alex
ander, Greensboro Co-llege, won for the
Miss Rootio 1 as studied only one year
and the student body was exceptionally
proud to be represented by her. She
went to Asheville on October 13 and
sang in the state audition over Station
WWNC and won much praise from the
radio managers of Asheville. She gave
two numbers, “Fiddle and I” and
“Ave Maria.” Mrs. Coble went with
Miss Boone as her accompanist and she
complimented her very highly in com
parison with the other state contest
Mr. Goins also went to Asheville and
received creditable mention. He has a
wonderful field in music before him.
Both of the young artists are well to*
be proud of and Elon should boost the
fact that both of them have studied
w'ithin her walls.
MRS. FRANCES J. RING

away two years; back to Elon 1924.
CONCERNING THE CAMPUS
When “Motlier Ring” came to Elon
in 1924 there were only faint signs of
the beautiful buildings, and there was
not the beautiful campus we now see.
A comparison of the conditions as they
were in 1024 and as they now are shows
a striking contrast. The buildings are
completed and in use—w^e are enjoying
them, and are glad of the privilege.
The campus has changed; is changing.
Where there were ugly piles of brick,
gand and iron, or remains of such, we
now see growing shrubs and blooming
flowers. Where there were by-paths
and ditches that made us almost lose
our religion when it rained we now
have cement walks on which we walk
and give the “King’s English” full
sway. The hard ground between the
places mentioned has been turned into
a beautiful green lawn.
This has not come about automatical
ly, as it may seem to those former
students returning to o'ur college, and
to visitors who come and go on Sun
days, but is the result of capable over
sight and natural talent of “Mother
Ring.” “Mother Ring,” we appreci
ate the fact that every one admires
our campus. It is truly a work of art.
Students, continual work is being done
on oxir campus, and Mrs. Ring is
supervising it with the skill of a land
scape gardener. But it does not be
long to her alone. It is OUR campus
and we must help to beautify it. New
earth is being placed at various places,
and especially near the walks, in order
that new grass may grow w’here other
has been trampled down. Let us co
operate for the accomplishment of this
purpose, and use the walks. This is
one way in which we can show Mrs.
Ring that we appreciate the work she
has been doing. The walks are wide
enough and plentiful enough that we
don’t have to walk on the fresh earth
or growing grass. Let us do our part
toward beautifying our campus, and
when it is complimented and called the
most beautiful one in the state we can
feel that we have had a part in mak
ing it so.

SONOAY EVENING SERVICE
The Sunday evening service of Octo
ber 19. was under the direction of the
Sunday school with Miss Caroline
Powell, assistant superintendent, in
The meeting was in the form of an
Open Forum. Professor Bennett, as
speaker, gave an able and interesting
talk on the subject, “The New Ap
proach to and Appreciation of the
Bible.” Following the address, an in
teresting discussion took place in which
both professors and students took part.
This was the second Open Forum
meeting held this year, and more and
.nore interest is being shown in the
meetings each Sunday evening.
