When the Fighting Christiana lost to
Emory and Henry last Saturday by a
seore of 7-13, they displayed a truly
■fighting spirit, considering the handicap
that they were under. With many of
Eloh’s regulars missing from the line
up, they outplayed the Virginians; but
were unable to cope with their effective
Branner consistantly threw the Wasp
aggregation for lo'sses, and Efird played
stellar football, running do-wn on punts
and stopping his man in his tracks, re
covering a Wasp fumbled punt which
paved the way for a touchdown in the
third quarter. Cook was Elon’s big
man on the offense, while Yorkievitz
was a close second. Bailey and Mauck
were the higli lights of the visitors’
The visitors scored a touchdown iu
the early part of the first quarter; and
for the rest of the half it was a punt
ing duel between Smith and Farmer.
The second half opened with Elon re
ceiving the ball and marching down the
field for a touchdown after a series of
■downs. In the last few minutes of play,
the Wasps completed another one of
their effective long forward passes for
a second touchdown.
Elon made 9 first downs to Emory
and Henry’s eleven. The penalties
were few, Elon receiving three and the
Wasps one. Both teams battled to their
last ounce of strength and endurance.
They were pretty evenly matched, with
Elon having the advantage in punting,
and the Wasps in fo'rward passes. This
was one of the moat interesting games
-that has been played in the history of

These Wonderful Programs.
The Russian Cossack Chorus is the
next number to be given in the series
of concerts sponsored by the Music
Lover’s Clubs of Elon College. Burling
ton and Graham.
The fourteen male voices do not con
stitute a group of singers, but a great
instrument composed of human voices
upon which a master plays at will, pro
ducing the sounds which those who hear
them will not consider sacrilege to call
celestial, heavenly. They possess the
peculiar qualities of a great organ, and
the ensemble provides a rare and
genuine musical treat.
This is different from the artists ap
pearing heretofore, and to miss this
program will be to miss the best so far
of the concert, and pro’bably the best
of all. Elon is fortunate iu getting
this chorus, and it is expected that more
real enjoyment will be derived by the
students of the college from this con
cert than the others.

Elon students and fans are well
pleased with the showing of the team
made Saturday against the strong
Emory and Henry organization. Though
suffering defeat in this game by a
smaller margin the Elon Christians put
up one of the best fights this season
and any one who saw the game is high
In praise in the way the team operated
against the Virginians.
The season will close for Elon
Thanksgiving dav when the Christians
meet the Lenoir-Khyne Mountain Bears
at Hickory. The dope on these two
teams seems to favor neither. Lenoir-
Ehyne lost to High Point by one touch
down. Elon did the same. Both Lenoir-
Rhyne and Elon won from Guilford by
about the same margin. The two teams
are about equal and either team has
equal chance to win.
The Christians will put up a des
perate effort to capture this final game
of an already successful season and
will fight all the harder becaue
ing on their opponent’s field.
Both the morning and evening ser
vices were ]>articularly interesting Sun
day, November the twentieth. In the
morning "hesides tl\e usual choral ser
vice. the offertory was a ladies chorus—
“The Lord is My Shepherd.” Dr.
Alexander brought u.s a stirring message
—“The Christian Life—Its Hind-
ranees.” In a very effective manner
a comparison was made between dis-
eases which attack our bodies and sin
which attacks our souls. We must learn
how to take care of our souls just as
we do onr bodies. The speaker showed
that the season and other conditions
should be right in matters dealing with
the soul, as they had to be when a
farmer planted his vegetables. Just as
there are hindrances in agriculture, so
there are hindrances in the Christian
life. Some of these are a jealous heart, a
lack of initiative, a lack of training,
and choosing to do the wrong when
you know what is right. Christianity
is no mere theory. When you are a
Christian the Kingdom of God is dwell
ing within you.

a lovely way.
Thanksgiving Day, which Itas long
been known as the Home-Coming Day
for former Philologians, as well as
Alumni and friends of Elon College, is
here again. It is hardly necessary to
mention the fact that the Philologian
Literary Society will present its annual
public program on Thursday evening in
Whitley Memorial Auditorium, for the
word, “Philologian” has long been as
sociated with Thanksgiving as the
home-coming day of old students.
The “Phis” have been looking for
ward to this occasion with glad hearts
and great expectations because of the
pleasant memories that former o’cca-
sion^ such as this have brought to their
minds. They are expecting to have as
guests a large number of former
“Phis,” Alumni and friends of this
Society and Elon College. To each
Philologian, former student, and friend
the Society wishes to extend a hearty
and cordial welcome as you come to
attend this annual affair. The Phis
want you to feel at home when at Elon,
and, with one accord, they welcome
every former student or friend to come
and enjoy themselves. Welcome, one

James Montgomery Flagg, dean of
American illustrators, has consented to
criticize and make personal comments
to artists who submit drawing of ex
ceptional merit to Elon publications
and College Humor in their $2,000 art
contest. For more than 37 years
Flagg’s illustrations have appeared in
the leading magazines in America. His
comments and criticisms, impossible to
be obtained in any other way, should
be invaluable to the fortunate artists.
Undergraduate artists may submit as
many drawings as desired—on any sub
jects—in black and white, before Janu
ary 15th. Two other famous artists,
Arthur William Brown and Gaar Wil
liams, will decide with Flagg on the
winning eight-one drawings.
Three original drawings by these
three artists will be presented to the
comic mazagines or publications on
whose staffs the grand prize winners
are regular contributors.
