Coach Walker’s Fig-litiiig Christians
definitely establisbod themselves as rcnl
football players from “Tlie Old North
State” when they defeated the Florida
Hurricanes at ^Miauii University last
Saturday by a score of 21 to 18. The
fact that our men won aver' one of the
South's stro'ngest teams gives them a
victor^' to be proud of. The Florida
“Bucklets” had not lost a game this
season until Coach Walker’s men paid
them a visit.
In the first quarter Elon started by
gniiiiiig 40 yards on two plays. But it
seemoil as if neitlier team could do much
in the first quarter, although Smith’s
good punting offset Miami's gaining
ability and Walker and Williams were
fcrrever ripping through Miami’s line.
On the first play that was pulled by
the Hurricances in the second quarter,
Ziegler nailed Downes for a 6-yard loss,
Mnl Inter Bninett for 10 more. By this
time things began to look bright for
oui' men, but a few minutes later found
Miami carrying tlie ball for a touch
down. Audie Mills, Miami backfield
n.an, sidestepped liis way across the goal
line for the second touchdown. Both
tries for extra points failed.
Then Elon start-ed. A 15-yard penalty
for the Hurricanes put our men ou the
50-yard line. “Smitty” dropped back
on a punt formation, but passed to Wil-

lERE IHiKSGillG DAY
Dean Elbert Russell, of the School of
Religio'n of Duke University, has ac
cepted the invitation extended by the
Ministerial Association and will speak
ill the Whitley Auditorium at 7:30 P. M.
November 2oth. His subject is, "Tlie
■Challenge of Materialism.” We believe
it will be worth the students’ while to
make a special effort to attend this ser-
'■ice and hear this splendidly qualified
Dr. W. 0. Miteherling, vice-president
of Burlington ^s new Rayon Mill, de
delivered a delightful lecture on the
story of rayon in the chapel today. Dr.
Miteherling spoke on a subject which
is of great interest at the present time,
and to which he has given quite a bit
Some of the interesting facts pre
sented by Dr. ^Miteherling are given
below. Of the 270,000,000 pounds of
rayon produced in'the world, the United
States produces about one-third. In
If'lO, the production of rayon had not
been begun in the U. S. Only one plant
in the U. S. produces the highest grade
of rayon. Burlington uses from 35,000
to 50,000 pounds of rayon per w'eek.
Ivayon has not the qualities of silk and
it will never take the place of pure
silk. It is a cheap and serviceable sub
stitute foT silk. Rayon is merely cotton
or wood'pulp treated with chenncals.
There are several processes by which
the rayon fibre is produced. The first
rayon fabrics produced were explosive,
and chemists had to work out some pro
cess that would ]>roduce an unexplosive
fabric. Chemistry is still essential to
the successful production of rayon.
The production of this fabric is a tedi
ous and complicnted process. Dr.
Miteherling stated that if the produc
tion of rayon stopped, one-third of the
chemical business would have to be

Friendly Relations Between the Two

For the First Time in Over 20 Years.
In a hot contest, Wednesday evening,
the representatives of the Philologian
Literary Society won a unanimous de

Clio Literary Society. The query was:
Resolved, that the United States Gov-

by the judges of the contest with the
best speech on the affirmative.
The negative si)eakers were, G. D.
Underhill, Wyatt Highsmith, and Ralph

the best speaker of the Olios. The Clio-

DAVID BROWN HAERELL, A. B. ’28
Assistant Director in the Music
Mr. Harrell pomes to iis from the
Eastern part of Virginia, in keeping
vvitli the recorii of his preiler-essors he
is all he elaims to be. One would take
him for a student rather than an lii-
srtuetoT, judgigng from size and age.
However, he knows his subject and is
n liard and constant worker. We are
proud tliat “LITTLE” David is with
us and predict for him a great future
in the world of Music. According to
cur way of thinking he has the quali
fications for success, ability, ambition
and a desire to work.
B. A. Sellars & Sons were responsible
for assisting in the subscription cam
paign of the Maroon and Gold.
Dr. C. M. Walters, w'ho has been ill
for some time, is out practicing again.
Rosenbloom’s Young Men’s Shop was
responsible for assisting in the subsciip-
tion campaign of the Maroon and Golil.
Mr. G. D. Underwood, '23, Coach of
the Mt. Airy High School stopped here
for a short time Friday after his team
played Burlington in football.
Foster’s Shoe Company was respon
sible for assisting in the subscription
campaign of the Maroon and Gold.
Mebane Shoe Company was respon
sible for assisting in the subscription
campaign of the Maroon and Gold.
For a long tinie those of us wlio have
season tickets, and many wlio do not,
have been looking forward to the com
ing of the Chicago Concert Company
on ^ronday evening, Novomber tw’elfth.
Now that they have been here we look
back on the event with a degree of satis
faction seldom found to follow a con
cert. Xo one was in the least detail
disappointed in the performance of the
coni])any. The program had a universal
a]ipeal such as one rarely finds. Each
member of the company was in excel
lent voice for the evening’s perform
ance. Eacli number stood out as one
j'articularly liked by the audience. The
applause was genuine and singularly
unanimous. The act of opera in cos
tume attracted particular attention.

ELON STOOENTS MEET THE
A. A. Rodriguez lectured to thirty
students on “The Sugar Cane Indus
try” as related to Cuba at the meeting
of the Economics Club last Thursday.
The program called for four speakers
to speak on different phases of industry,
but due to the fact that “The Sugar
Cane Industry” was such an interest
ing topic, Mr. Rodriguez used the whole
hour in his discussion. Mr. Rodriguez
gave a very interesting talk, showing
that he is rapidly mastering the Eng
lish. lancuf’-e and getting a goo'd back
ground in llie fundamental economic

could be no doubt about it. But wiiy

Sunny Southland and had brought home
the bacon by rushing the University of
Miami off its feet in one of the most
radically-doi)e-upsetting events of the
football year. Elon’s first victory, with
the football season almost over!

SPIRING TALK TO STODEKTS
A few days ago I visited at the home
of a farmer friend. This farmer friend
had w'hat I believe to be the champion
strutter. He was ahead even of our
college strutter, w’ho Y>arade around with
tlieir many colored coats, striped knick

This old gobbler had some forty fol
lowers who he seemed to imagine were
admiring him. That, however, is not
the point. The farmer told me that
next W’eek he w^ould be selling these
turkeys for Thanksgiving dinners.
It then occurred to me that Thanks

“Success is not an accident.” At
these words many Elon stulents awoke
from their day-dreaming on Monday
morning and saw Prof. Barney on the
platform. Their hasty conclusions were
that they were going to get something
w'orth thinking about. They did.
Prof. Barney inspired all w'ho heard
him to w’O'rk for success. He explained
that good luck was sometimes an acci
dent, but never was success an accident.
He asked the question, “What is lifef”
Then he gave the following answers:
