A special train is to be chartered at
rates such that the round trip includ

Tliese were the facts made known
at the Tuesday chapel service by the
Registrar, ]Str. C. M. Cannon, The
chapel service was led bv our clieer
leader, T. D. Eure, who made a very
entliusiastic speech . on school spirit.
He showed liow those Vho have had
special voL-al training all their lives by
’possum hunting and hog calling can
be well utilized at the game, and lie
urged them to be present so as to join
their melodious voices to the rousing
cheers and yells to be given. After
Mr. Eure’s speech, he called on Pro-fes-
3or Barney w^ho convinced the students
that they have a football team worthy
of their most hearty support and spoke
of the value of such support to the
Rarely have we heard a better talk
on backing the team than Professor
Van Cleave made at this chapel ser
vice. He emphasized the fact that the
student body in general is quite as
mucli responsible for the showing their
team makes as the members of the
team themselves. Following these
splendid talks Mr. Cannon asked those
•who could conveniently go to the game
to stand. A good number responded,
and plans for special transportation
•continue. All students planning to see
the game, whether day ot dormitory,
are requested to get aboard the train,
and no “ bummingis expected.
Practically the entire student body
is expected to witness the contest; for
rarely has such an opportunity been
given to the students here. We are in
formed that social privileges will be
given, and there will be other advant
ages. Let’s boost our tean\ by being
present to see them play. It is up to
tlie students to play the game as much
as it is to the team itself; and w'e are
expected to do it. May we count on
COACH WALKER CALLS
ON ms RESERVES
Things at old Elon are sure on the
hum! H. T. Efird, R. E. Sims, “Lefty’*
Briggs, “Plip” Hunter, and “Red”
Jones, R. Rustem and Fred Caddell,
are donning uniforms for the old
Maroon and Gold. With these five
liuskies reporting to" Coach Walker, the
■scoring chances of our football team
have gone up one Imndred percent.
Due to several severe set backs, that
has come in for bad breaks to weaken
our football team, these patriotic sons
of the Fighting Christians are going
out to do their best for their Alma
Mater. All honor and praise to the
faithful ones who went out at the
beginning of the season and have stay
ed out and fought against heavy odds.
But they need help, and we are glad
to know they are getting it.

ELON’S DOMESTIC ART CO-EDS
Tlu' Domestic Science De])artment, under the direction of Miss Raine, is
doing splendid work this year. The number of students in the department is
smaller than it has been in previous years. However, efficiency on the part of
tile students is greater this year than it had been heretofore. The girls are very
nmch interested in their work, and Miss Raine is optimistic as far as the pro
gress of tl'.e dej'artment is concerned. “I liave a nice groujt of giihs in my
'lepartment this year,*’ said Miss Raine.
The accomplishments that are being acquired by the students of the
Domestic Science Department are a manifestation of tlie intelligence and dili
gence of the students. Not only that, but they demonstrate that there is some
one else in tiiat department who is the most responsible one for tlie wonlerful
achievements of the' students. The cnie of whom I am thinking at this time is
Miss Raine, who deserves a great deal of credit for the splendid work in the
Domestic Science Depnrtment.
Sunday evening the Ministerial As
sociation of Elon College gave two very
interesting programs. The first was
given at the Hopednle Christian church.
Mr. Ray N. Moses, President of the
Association, the first speaker, used as
his theme, “Love as the Central theme
in Christ’s Teachings.” Mr. B. "P.
Rakestraw spoke on “Ijove In Every
day Life.” Mr, Dan Boone gave a
very interesting talk on “Love as a
Means of Church Unity.”
The second program was given at the
Piney Grove Baptist church at Holly
Springs, N. C. J. Howard Smith
preaclied a very forceful sermon on
“The Manhood of the Master.” He
tool^ us his text Luke 2:52. He.very
vividly portrayed Jesus as a happy and
a strong man. “Often people think
of Jesus as a physical weakling and an
i'nhaj)py man. But surely He must
have been a strong, happy, cheerful
man,” said the speaker.
He also brought out the joy that
there is in life service and the benefits
that are received in the end. He gave
a few brief, accounts of men who have
given all. and suffered all in order to
present the Mnster to those who knew
Mr. Sam B. Wilson presided over the
meeting. Mr. Troy Jones, a ministerial
student at W’’ake Forest College, also
assisted in the services, which were
very helpful and much appreciated.
MISS SOZANNE KEENER
OPENS CONCERT COORSE
Occasion Enjoyed by Large and Atten
The Alamance County Concert Course
opened on Tuesday evening, October
ninth, with Miss Suzanne Keener as
coloratura soprano. She scored an un
usually great success with students,
faculty and visitors who were present.
Her appeal is universal. She so petite
and her smile so disarming won all of
the hearts of the audience, especially
thos(^ of the men, Miss Keener might
well be a “heart smasher,” if she were
interested enough to try.
Her program had an appeal such as
Miss Keener alone lends to her numbers.
Her pianissimoes attracted especial at
tention, They were so perfect that one
seemed forced to hold his breath for
fear of missing part of the beauty.
Her personality, her initial talent and
expert training have carried her far;
however, we nuist not forget, as we so
often do, that “Beautiful tilings are
hard.” She had to work strenuously
and continuously to achieve her success.
1 This should be an incentive to every
student to redouble his efforts and put
his best into his work.
Our own I’lof. Velie accompanied for
Miss Keener in this concert. We are
' extremely proud and very fortunate to
have such a noted and competent artist
as the head of our conservatory.

every student has to get into the spirit
of the thing, and pull together. As
a result of the spirit aroused, many
students who have never donned a foot

help the Coach and the college to turn
out a winning team.

The Elon football team received
their third defeat of the season at the
hands of Catawba last Saturday, Octo
ber 13. This was the most interesting
game of the season for our team for the
simple reason that the teams were well
matched. Our men fought a hard fight
and felt as if the game w’as ours until
the final minutes of the game. The
