place of Mr. Howard Briggs, who did
n(rt return to us this year, and also a
new Vice-President to succeed Mr. T. B.

Due to the short period of time, there
were no lengthy nominating speeches.
Immediately after Miss Worsley called
the meeting to order, Mr. Rakestraw

mediately followed. Messrs. Register
and K. B. Dofflemyer were again plac
ed in nomination as was Mr. J. Hinton

to eliminate the lowest and take a vote
on the two highest. Mr. Register won

Professor Martin used as his subject,

student has the privilege of sitting on
Professor Martin’s history class, but he
was willing to share some of his humor

body in his talk. Professor Martin said
that he is of the old school—he believes
that students need to accumulate facts.
He declared that a school which does
not inculcate the ideals of learning,
orderliness, and exactness is guilty of a
grave misdemeanor. He urged every
one who had not already done so to be

college graduate should begin now;

Plans and try-outs for the annual
State oratorical contest are now under
way. One contest being sponsored by
the American Legion is open to high
scho-ols and colleges. The subject is,
“The Duty of Every Citizen to Vote.”
Preliminaries will be held before Octo
ber 29, and semi-finals and finals No
vember 5. Cash prizes will be awarded
the winners of first and second places,
and a medal will also bo given the win
ner of first place.
The state peace contest will be held
at Guilford this year. There is a first
prize of $60.00 and a second one of
•i-40.00. This is open to the colleges of
Another contest is sponsored by the
State Forensic Association and is open
to the schools of the state.
It is hoped that the students will take
iLterest in the contests and that Elon
may send out strong representatives in
At a meeting on September 23, the
Elon student body elected first and sec
ond assistant cheer leaders for the year
1928-’29. “Pap” Euro, who did an ex
cellent job as “noise promoter’^ on the
sidelines last year, was in charge of the
meeting. “Pap” hails from the—he
calls it city—burg of Gatesville, N. C.,
where he has had an abundance of prac
tice yodeling and calling hogs. With
such voice culture he is particularly
filled to again lead the student body
in cheering our team on to victory.
The two assistants elected to help
‘Pap” were Palmer Barrett and Hin
ton Rountree. These two assistants
have also' had considerable voice train
g in hollering, “Freshmen out,”
Freshmen on the tank,” etc. Barrett
is qualified to lead cheers in most any
language desired, he being a master of
English, Spanish and French. Roun
tree can just about “out-holler” any
body on the sidelines. The new as
sistants are now working under their
chief, learning new yells. Eure’s great
est ambition is to work with h^ helpers
as a unit, which will naturally create
art and co-operation. They are now
working signals in their new system
of cheering. This will enable the
cheerers to keep in better time with
with the leaders.
The cheerios will be organized next
week and begin their training for the
amusement of the spectators at all
games played at home. This group
proved successful last year, and intend
to carry it across in even better style
this year. “Big Noise” Eure is very
well pleased with the freshman spirit.
He says, “The freshman class is the
best spirited group of students that I
have ever worked with.” This is a
decided compliment to the Class of ’32.
Barrett and Rountree are taking great
interest in their work—working to pro
mote better spirit on the campus, and
a harder fighting student body for their
athletes. Come on, students, let’s go—
one, two, three, Rah, rah, rah, ray!

The party was filled with laughtej

roaring fire to roast the weinies. This
was continued until all had satisfied
their hunger with weinies, and their
thirst with punch. Then the attention

Our beloved President, W. A. Harper,
opened the speaking by telling of Dr.
Jay’s flirtations as his wife appeared
on the scene. This caused much
laughter and pain too, on account of
too many “days.” After the jokes he
introduced the first speaker of the eve
ning, Coach Walker.
Coach Walker held the attention of
the group while he told what he ex
pected from the team, and the student
body. He said that many of the men
are inexperienced in college football,
but they are putting their hearts into
the game. He stressed what important
part the spirit of the student body
D. W. Shepherd introduced Mr.
Loomis. Mr. Loomis spent several days
at Elon, giving valuable advice to tho
Y. M. workers. We were very fortunate
ill having him to speak on this occa
sion. His speech centered around
“Playing the Game of Life.” He
praised Coach Walker for his ideal of
playing the game fair and square, and
not just to win. He sighted our atten
tion to several illustrations. One in
which a losing side of a battle had
one who' would not give up. By this
single boy’s continual yell, “Fight up,
fight up, ’ ’ the tide was turned. He
said, “to win in life’s battle you must
fight the game hard and fair, and
never give up.” The speech was very
effective, and interesting throughout.
The Y. M. boys extend many thanks
to D. W. Shepherd, president, and Cecil
Cox, vice-president, of Y. M. C. A. for
the wonderful planning of the entire
program. It was fully enjoyed by all
Both Literary Societies Are Confident
RE GOOD TO THE FRESHMEN
THEY’LL SOON GROW IIP
The entire student body should be
looking forward to the Clio-Philologian
Debate which is to be held' on the four
teenth of November. Both Literary
Societies l ave the cream of their society
to represent them in the annual de
bate. There is much rivalry between
the two societies and neither is going
to' overlook any effort in the desire to
win a victory over its opponent. For
the Clio Society Ralph Johnson, Gard
ner Underhill, and T. D. Euro will go
in to the debate determined to bring
home the bacon. All of these men have
had experience and should give good
accounts of themselves.
Tom Lowery. L. C. Williams, and
Phalti Lawrence will uphold the banner
of the Philologian Society. Without a
doubt these three men are the pick of
that society. L. C. Williams did much
to win the debate last year for the
Freshmen in the annual Sophomore-
Every student should attend this de
bate without fail. It is hoped that the
societies will attend in bodies and that
they will cheer for their favorites.

The Elon Stuck Up Club gave the
Freshman Class an intelligence test the
other day and was amazed to learn that
the Freshmen were almost equal to the
Sophomores in intellect. Why, these
Elon Freshmen know their stuff, you
can’t fool ’em on anything. They
have even been painting numbers on
the tank. But talk about knocking the
Sophs cold they sure did it on that
questionnaire stunt. Here are some of
the questions and answers:
Question—What is the honor system
Answer—It it a system by which the
Sophomores get all the honor and the
Freshmen get heck.
Question—What is the major offense
Answer—The major offense at Elon
is going off the campus without the
faculty knowing it.
Question—What are the seven won
ders of Elon?
Answer—The seven wonders of Elon
are Daniel Boone, Elizabeth Slack,
Sam B. Wilson, Virginia Lineburger,
Curnie Keith, Helen Turner and Paul
