Face Panthers'
To liead Eion Attack At High Point
’No.9
Whistle Blows At
8 In High Point
Capacity Crowd Expected
What is generally considered' a
classic . battle in North Carolina
basketball circles will take place
tonighl .at 8 o’tlo:k in the gyni-
nasium cf High' Point- GJlege,
when'oiir cannonading Christians
invade the campU'3 of the High
Point Pantheis. Both teams have
faced each other once ihis season
in a thrtl'J-a-second game oh our
own court. A capacity crowd
packed .our gymnasium that night
long before game time, and a sim
ilar situation is expected tonight.
Elon and High Point are co
favorites to capture the North
State Conference title, and a lot
will depend up>-n the outcome of
this game. .
The Panthers have many rea
sons to exert themselves to the
utmost to gain a victory in to
night’s encounter, and likewise
Elon has as many reascns not to
let them gain their objective.
First of all, High Point would
like very much to avenge last
year’s defeats which kept them
from winning the championship.
Secondly, this season’s setback is
still fre;h in their memory, and
they would like nothing better
than to make up for that. Thirdly
the individual performan^«!s of
some vf our players haV^ ,
Panthers plenty worried. This
is especially true of Lloyd Whit
ley, a native of High Point, who
usually runs wild against his home
townsmen. Last year, he prac
tically won this game single
handed. Captain Hal Bradley
will be watched very closely t>.o,
for he is the hottest player in the
Conference at present, and high
scorer in the last meeting of the
two clubs, despite the fact he was
guaraed by the brilliant Hampton,
High Point’s giant center. Ike
Fesmire usually gets vei’y emo
tionally aroused by the sight of
Panthers too, and much will be
expected from him. Jim Abbitt
is in the groove at present, and
is not only a floor man, but a
scoring threat as well. Red Crom-
lish, who threw a scare into all
of us a short while ago with an
attack of appendicitis, will round
out the starting line up. Dick’s
colorful playing and in-the-pinch
ability will be enjoyed by all.
Ben Lilien, John Henry Pierca,
and several others are bound to
see some acti-n. One of the fin
est games of the year is expected,
so leave early and be ready for
something really worth . seeing.

Mrs. Lucas In Fine
Recital Last Week
Mrs. Cora' Cox Lucas of Greens
boro gave an excellent piano re
cital Monday evening, January
24, before an appreciative audi
ence in Whitley Memorial Audi
torium. Mrs. Lucas chose a veiy
interesting program from the
classic, rc.mantic, and m dern
schools. Her remarks concerning
the composers represented on the
program added much to the en
joyment and appreciation of the
recital. Her playing proved her
artistic and technical mastery at
the keyboard.
In the first group Mrs. Lucas
played “The Nun” by Couperin,
and “Gavotte” by Gluek-Brahms.
In the second group she played
the “Romance” in F sharp major
by Schumann, the A-flat Impromp
tu my Schubert, and three Chopin
numbers—two Preludes and A
flat Waltz. Sibelius’ “Romance”
and the Albeniz “Tango” conclud
ed the first half of the recital.
Pr-fessor Stuart Pratt began
the second part of the program
with two organ numbers, Tch ruf’
zu dir” by Bach, and the Allegro
Maesto-39 from Guilmant’s So
nata in C minor.
As the concluding number Mrs.
Lucas gave a brilliant perform
ance of the Mendelssohn Concerto
in G minor. Professor Pratt
played the orchestral accompani
ment to the c.ncerto on the or
gan.

been selected by Dr. L. E. Smith
to represent Elon College at Nash
ville, Tennessee, during the in
auguration of Dr. Oliver C. Car
michael as chancellor of Vander

higher education in the Svuth,
in which sessions will be devoted

graduate education. The sympo
sium will coverd two days pre

inauguration of Dr. Carmichael
as the third will stand as a mile
stone in higher education in the
South. Dr. Carmichael was elect
ed early in 1937 and took over
the duties July 1 relieving Chan
cellor James H. Kirkland, dean of
American university heads, who is
now serving as chancellor emeri

mercial Club, emerged from its
winter coc-on to enthusiastically
announce its plans for an inter
esting spring semester for the
young business men and women
of tcmorrow.
With a group of capable officers
at the helm, a successful year is
assured. The Club, which will
meet the first Tuesday of every
m^nth, elected the following;
President, Elizabeth Gray; Vice-
President, Nancy Hoylman; Sec
retary, Ruby Lee Foster; Treasur
er, Marie Mangum; and Reporter,
Betty Gehm.
Two social affairs are planned
fo give the Club members an op
portunity to meet each other in
an atmosphere of sociality, free
from any business atmosphere. In
this way the competent young
Pr.fessor McAllister, newly ac
quired and much appreciated math
teacher, will not teach here the
next semester. His plans, al
though indefinite, are to resume
work on his Ph. D. at Duke Uni
versity. We sincerely regret his
leaving, and. hope he will return
in the near future. Mrs. McAllis
ter remains and will continue to
teach her classes in Physical
Education. Dr. Wicker, who has
not been teaching on account of
illness, replaces Professor McAl

business people will find out the

Speakers from the outside busi-

benefit by advice they offer, and
learn something of what lies be-

each student.
Two other important activities
of the Commercial Club will be
to sponsor one or two Student

to secure positions for business

sults in the issue which wiil

everyone of you to tear off this

stub in the box which has been
placed in the Alamance Build
ing for this purpose. Whether
or not more questionnaires cf
this type will lie tried will de
pend mainly upon the re»pons«
given to this one.
The reasons, of which you
are to check three, “1” for the
most important, “2” for second
most important, and “3” for
third most important, are as
follows:
1. Because college graduates
do better in business.
2. For a social good time.
3. To find out what life is all
about.
4. Because it’s the “thing to
do.” —
5. To get away from home.
6. To -settle on a vocation.
7. To avoid having to go to
work tor f ur years more.
8. To become sophisticated. —

13. Because my family thought
I should.
