On Sunday evening. February 5, Dr.
Branson, Professor of Economics and
Sociology ill the University of North

under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A.,
on the .subject “Three Story Men.’’
Dr. Brynson stated that the "world j
was full of one story men. These men
liv^ o'n the level of physical appetites
and animal instincts. They live day

that they were as “dead as a door
nail” as Dickens put it. There are
multitudes of one story men.
Next he took up two-story men.
These he classified as having intellect- |
nal interest, with a wide range of en
joyments and activities. These, he
stated, live on the level of curiosity.
They are curious to learn and forever
vnsatisfied. Men who live an intel-

The Maroon and Gold Cordially Awaits
Maro'on and Gold rejoices to learn
that tlie Board of Trustees is to meet
in a mid-winter session here on Febru
ary 14th. The students appreciate the
great sacrifice that the member of the
Board of Trustees have made for* the
benefit of the college. The students
also appreciate the wisdom and sound
judgment with which the trustees of
our college have planned for the institu
tion until it has become recognized as
among the leading institutions of its
kind in the country. Particularly do
tlie students appreciate the statesman-
hke way in which the trustees planned
for the rebuilding of the college follow
ing the fire of five years ago and for
its entrance into the Southern Associa
tion of Colleges and Secondary Schools
We hope that the trustees will find
it possible to attend chapel service
while they are here so that they may
see the students assembled for the regu
lar worship, and so that the students
may have the pleasure of meeting them
as a body.
We hope also that they will find time
while here to attend our classes and get
acquainted with the work of the col-

ELON VS. WILLIAM & MARY
The game with William and
Mary Friday will be the “big”
game of the home season, as this
will no doubt be the strongest
team to be seen in action on the
home court this year. William
and Mary has an impressive
record in basketball this year,
having won over several of the
North Carolina teams and will
bring to the Elon fans an excel
lent brand of basketball.
Coach Walker’s team has a fair
record this year and has struck
its mid-season stride, and the
game on Friday night should re
sult in a close score.

THE SILHOUETTE OF ’31
The sky was dark
With not a star in sight
When the silhouette of ’31
Appeared against the night.
It seemed a strange phenomenon.
But still it was quite real
As it stood out against the tank
With a strange and odd appeal.
It seemed to say ’twould guard us
As thru the years we go
And by our work and things we do
Our true appreciations show.
It’s just a symbol we hold dear.
It means our class, our woes, our
It’s everything we strive to do
In playing thru the college game.
And as this Freshman year we end
We owe our help to this true
Just ’31 still towering high
A silho'uette against the sky.

On September sih, over a hundred
High School gradijates entered Elon

The members of the Class of ’31 have

At Final Whistle, The Score
Showed Elon 51—Wofford 30.
Last Thursday night the Christian
quintet experienced little difficulty in
snowing under the Wofford Terriers by
the score of 51-30. The Christians fresh
from their recent Northern trip through
Mrginia, West Virginia and Ohio, show
ed wonderful improvement over their
previous playing. Coach Walker has
surely improved the general all-round
playing of the team.
Dan Long Newman, the flashing,
scintillating star of the Christian
basketeers. was again the high scorer
with twenty-four points to his credit.
Hawkeye’s one handed throws with
liis back to- the basket were the straw
which broke the Terrier’s back.
“Lefty” Briggs also gave a good ac
count of himself in the guard position.
Capt. “Squire” Sims showed marked
improvement in his shooting. “Tobe”
Crutchfield certainly blossomed out into
an offensive threat as he dribbled
through the entire Wofford defense twice
to score his goals. “Zac” looked better
also since his trip to the Land of Cold
Weather, as his speed and foot work
are ten-fold improved.
Shuler was the outstanding threat of
visitors, being high scorer of tti©
Wofford team. The first half ended
30-15 in Elon’s favor. During the
second half Wofford scored fifteen more
points, of which Shuler accounted for
The Christians under Coach Walker’s
direction made a good record on the
Northern trip, as every game they lost
was closely contested throughout. So
fresh from these victories, the team
lived up to expectation by displaying
great improvement in all the phases
of the game.
Max Rosen, Famous Violinist,
Enthralled Audience by His
Mr. Isiah Seligman Accompanied, and
Gave Three Choice Selections.
A very large and appreciative audi
ence attended the fourth recital of the
Alamance County Concert Course given
here February 1. 1928 by Max Rosen,
famous violinist. He was accompanied
by Isiah Seligman at the piano.
His coTicert was artistically arranged
and well chosen. Several piano solos
were given by Seligman, which showed
that he, too, was a real artist.
Max Rosen, who is recognized as one
of the greatest artists of the world, is
noted for his individual emotional ap
peal to the working man as well as to
the scholar of music. This is probably
due to his interesting and colorful
career. He is the son of a Roumanian
musician and was reared in poverty.
His talent was soon recognized, how
ever, and he was sent abroad where he
studied under Willy Hess and Leopold
Auer. He made his debut with the Phil
harmonic Orchestra in Dresden. This
was fallowed by a tour of the European
countries in which he was applauded by
royalty. His American debut was made
