Mr. Northeutt: It depends on how

FOOTBALL SEASON VERY SUCCESSFUL
Now that the final whistle has blown and the 1927 football sea
son has closed, it would be well for us to consider a brief summaiy
of the results.
In the early part of the season it was stated in these columns,
“If the student body backs their team, the team W ILL win.’ Now,
by looking back over the results we can readily see that the state
ment was true. Eight games were played with strong teams as
opponents. Four of these, N. C. State, Davadson, High Point and
Emory and Henry were lost. Three—Guilford, Lynchburg, and
Lenoir-Rhyne—were won and the Wake Forest was tied 0-0.
Elon’s opponents scored 104 points while Elon scored ten touch
downs and four extra points for a total Score of 64 points. This is
a great improvement over the football records of the last few years.
McCauley and Alexander, first string men, Thompson and Harmon,
reserves, will be lost by graduation. Coach Walker will have left
plenty of material which has' been trained by him and which should
be a nucleus around which he can build' an excellent 1928 team.
The men have, trained better this year than they have in re
cent years. The student body has shown more interest and has
backed their team .much better than previously. These two factors
with' the excellent coaching that the men have received are the chief
reasons for the great improvement in football.
If the student body will continue to give their support, and if
the candidates for basketball and baseball will “train, ’ the final re
sults will show a similar improvement.
COLLEGE SPIRIT IN DEBATING AS WELL AS ATHLETICS
As stated in the preceding comment, “Every student should back
his team.” During the football game, we yell as if ‘we were insane,
and we should yell more than we': do. In basketball and baseball it
will be the same way. We will; go to the cars or to the station
to cheer our team on to victory. But, how much cheering will the
intercollegiate debater get? If a candidate for debating appears in
a preliminary and represents his college in a couple of debates he
will give as much time and energy as a halfback or a forward. How
much credit does he receive? He must work long hours delving in
uninteresting books searching for facts that will aid him in defeat
ing his opponents. After he has collected the facts, he must spend
much time arranging and re-arranging the material and, becoming
familiar enough with his speech to deliver' it in a pleasing and force
Recently a call for debaters was sent out and received only little
Think it over, students! There isn't one of us who will not be
drawn,‘into a public discussion sooner or later; and think how much
this practical experience of debating will aid you at the cruiccal
Students, let us become interested in debating, in our debaters '
and orators as well as our athletes.
HARVEY PRETLOW RAWLS
Harvey, we take our hats off to you, young man. You are to
be congratulated that you have a father and mother who make plans
for your college education while you play with a milk bottle. If you
are a failure, it will be your fault, for your parents have certainly
got your welfare at heart. How much difference there is between
the one who has parents to plan for his future while he sleeps in the
“Kiddy Koop” and the one that has to plan for his college education
after finishing high school! Young man, you are worthy of a place
in this paper for your photograph. You hold a unique position^ be
ing by far the youngest matriculated student at Elon.
We wish more parents could see far enough ahead to plan for

The great Persian ruler gazed from a hill
top upon his vast army of a million men.
It was the largest army that had ever existed.
And he turned away with tears in his eyes
because in a hundred years all trace of it
would be gone. That army was a symbol of
power, destructive and transient.
Today in one machine, nov/ being built in the
General Electric shops, there is combined
the muscular energy of two million men. This
great machine, a steam turbine, is also a
symbol of power—a new power that is con
structive and permanent.
Its unprecedented size, a record in construc

that the electrical industry is on the march,
ever on the alert to supply plenty of electricity
at a low cost to all.
