Coach D. C. (Peahead) Walker.
Eton’s mighty man of sports, has
tossed his latest prize—the 1935
Worth State baseball champion
ship into his treasure chest and
is now gathering his things to
head for Snow Hill where he
spends his summers as manager
of the crack Snow Hill outfit of
the Coastal Plain league.
Tn winning the third athletic
title of the year (and Coach Walk
er’s twelfth in five years) Elon
had the best baseball material in
the loop, and according to some
critics, the best in state intercol
legiate athletic circles.
Haded by the colorful Paul
(Lefty) Cheek, captain, who made
all conference and who played
first base for Elon, the Christians
dazzled rail birds by playing
“good ball” practically their en
tire season. Cheek, with Horace
(Horse) Mewborn of LeGrange,
second baseman, who also rated
the mythical all-conference nine,
perhaps entertained more North
State fans than any other two
players in their loop. Both
short and fast, furnished much
color throughout the season. Cheelc
is a Greensboro lad.
Jobe, with a batting average of
.429, led the club's hitting. Coach

season on the mound, but most of

Welcome Class of 1935 Into
Alumni Association; Co
operation With Incoming
Congratulations, Class of 1935.
The Alumni association welcomes
you Into the ranks of the grad
uates. For four years now you
have been under the protection
and guidance of Alma Mater, and
you are about to depart. You
will leave Elon with many friends
among the under classmen, in the
community, and in the faculty. The
former graduates do not, unfortu
nately, know you so well. Never
theless, there is a bend of common
relationship between us, and we
are here extending you a hearty
welcome into the association. Our
wish is that you may not let the
affection for Elon cool through
separation in space and time. A

ON IMPORTANCE OF VOTING
Appearing on the front page in this issLie is a ballot
form for the officers of the next administration. This bal
lot has been provided to carry out the wishes expressed by
the Association last commencement that the officers be
elected by ballot. In the last issue, March 1, this ballot
was carried on the editorial page, and it was then stated
that it would not appear in the commencement issue. Since
then, however, several have expressed the belief that many
would like to have it printed again. Many, perhaps, did not
see the ballot the first time. Consequently, it is given here
again, and this time on the front page!
Now, this ballot was prepared for YOU. It was the
belief of the Association that the Alumni and Alumnae
would welcome the opportunity of electing their officers
thi'ough the more Democratic procedure of the ballot, and
herein is provided that ballot.
Vote! Fill in at once and mail to Mrs. Cannon.
It is nothing but just that we should mention here that
the Alumni fee of $1 should accompany your vote. An ef
fort was made to have only the votes of the paid member
ship count in the electing of officers. However, that was
not done. The most active of the Alumni have expressed the
fear that such a move would dampen the interest of many
of the Alumni.
Now, two years ago the Alumni Association reduced
the membership fees, on the strengrth of the belief that
more than twice as many members could be secured through
a $1 fee as could be had through retaining the $2 fee. So,
send your dollar. Only through a large membership can the
Association be a success, carry on its financial affairs, and
make itself a real organization. Send your dollar. Or, bet
ter, bring it.
Finally even, if you don’t include your membership
fee, VOTE. If the method of electing by ballot is to carry
through, people must exercise their privilege of casting
votes for their choices. Otherwise it may appear that not
sufficient interest is . evident to justify its continuance
