THE SPIRIT OF ’31
We as a Freshman Class, have endeavored to present you, our
readers,’with a! truly interesting issue of the Maroon and Gold. Our
class mates have responded and co-operated on this issue in the same
spirit which has characterized them since the opening day of the
fall semester. We were heralded as the cream of all Freshman
classes, and we have tried to outdo our prophetic reputation. They
have displayed the same attitude towards editing this edition that
they have displayed all the year—that attitude of co-operation and
Ours is the spirit that will lead our individual efforts onward
and up^^ard in the Battle of Life. Fellow classmates, may we keep
this spirit with us and' accomplish much during our college careei
and leave behind us a name that shall remain emblazoned on Elon’s
annals as one full of service and good will.

DR. BRANSON’S LECTURE
Dr. E. C. Branson, Professor of Rural Economic and Sociology
in the University of North Carolina, gave a wonderfully inspiring
message last Sunday evening when he addressed our student body.
Dr. Branson is a state wide authority in his line o^ thought, and
those of us who failed to be present surely missed\ one of the red
letter events of our college year. SPELLBOUND is the only word
to describe the effect on the audience. SCORED would dscribe
those of us with narrow visions and little insight to the big things
of life. And SATISFACTORY would describe the lecture.
We, as Freshmen, wish to express our appreciation to those who
are responsible for getting men of such high calibre to appear be
fore us and speak. We deem it a privilege and take this means of
congratulating the Y. M. C. A. for the past Sunday s achievement
in securing a man of such renown and ability.

We are certainly glad to hear of the revival of the Freshman
cheering section known as the Pepos. It will be remembered that
the Pepos accomplished a great deal towards the reviving of a whole
hearted old time school spirit last fall during the football season. The
little stunts they enacted for the entertainment and amusement of
the spectators were thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated by visitors.
Since the gridiron season closed they have been idle, and, it is with
pleasure that we welcome back these bearers of good humor and
carriers of a Bigger and Better Elon Spirit when they appear at the
William and Mary basketball game. Go to it—we are for you—
Pepos of ’31.

Prof. Johnson: Young man, do you

Rodents have been much in evidence
lately around Ladies’ Hall, so' they have
decided to place bars at the windows
to keep frisk “Rats” out.
For many* years it has been' the cus
tom at Elon for the Sophomore and
Freshman classes to- compete in a debat
ing contest. This annual event takes
place on the fifth of April this year,
and the Freshmen, at least, are de
termined to make it a| red letter day
The Sophomore class is responsible
for the query, and the Freshmen have
the privilege of choosing the side they
wish. Two committees, one from each
of the two classes, are chosen to draw
up a set of rules which shall govern the
debate. The time for appointing these
committees is already here; and the
work should be begun at one©.
At present the prospects for this con
test are unusually bright. The Sopho
mores have experienced debaters, yet
they are not feared by the Freshmen
who also have some go’od material.
There are at least two students in the
Freshman class who represented their
respective high schools in the lannual
debate at the University of North Car
olina for two years in succession. Be
sides these there are many others who
are deeply interested and have had some
experience in literary work.
In conclusion, let us on behalf of the
Freshman class extend to the class of
1930 a challenge to compete with the
class of ’31 in said debating contest
to be held at Elon College April 5,
1928. We extend this challenge that
interest may be aroused in the literary
competition between these classes, and
wc sincerely hope that we may be
equally as successful in this contest as
the Sophs were in the basketball game

At the Sunday morning services Dr.
Alexander, the, college pastor, spoke on
“The Challenge of Christianity.” Dar
ing the discourse he declared that
Christianity serves as a challenge to the
world in three ways.
First: Christianity challenges us to'
look into life and to see what is there
for our own help; to see what con
stitutes life; to see the things that are
valuable to life. It challenges us to
look into life and to take only that
whicli will sustain life.
Second: Christianity challenges us
to be; to* appropriate what we know
is right; and to conform our lives to
what we know we should conform it to.

Municipal Accounting is Mr. Buck’s
hobby, and he is making a great success
in that field. He started by saying that,
“Accounting is one of the oldest pro
fessions. and the highest paid profes
sion.” It is an easy profession, yet
hard in this way, “You get the
maximum amount of results with the
minimum amount of labor.” Account
ing is looked on by most people as* be
ing very complicated, but really it is
only a matter of Debits and Credits.
