ELON SPORTSMANSHIP Several years ago Elon College won a trophy donated by the North State Conference to the school which showed the best and cleanest sports manship during the year. If predictions may be made on early fall indications, it is not likely that the trophy will be donated to us this year. In the first game of the year some indica tions of very bad sportsmanship were shown. It gives one a feeling of pride to be able to say in victory and defeat, “We have played the game honestly and accepted the decision like gentle men and men.” There is no honor in being a bad loser. Those who cannot swallow the bitterness of defeat like gentlemen have missed something which would make them better fitted to withstand the bitter actualities of life. They are akin to spoiled chil dren who go into tantrums when something they want is denied them. We have seen students enter school as fresh men; become seniors, then' graduates, and al ways what those freshmen would be as seniors has been determined by the students who pre- ceeded them. Upper classmen, it is up to us to decide whether the future graduates of Elon will Campus Chatter By Wesley Holland Well, freshmen have stopped sticking their heads in the wrong classrooms to ask silly questions, Elon’s football team is batting .500, the famous Elon parties (not sarcasm) are definitely better, and we have a good looking drum major who struts her stuff. Yep, Elon is ready for some light and airy truckin’. — I went down to see “Peahead’s” team face some real opposition Saturday, and he seems to have a good heavy de fensive ball club. Sports writers predicted that he would lose by 2 or three touch downs. Final score—Carolina 14 — Wake Forest 6. — “Red” Cromlish, one of the best guards Elon has ever produc ed in the way of basketball, was on the campus during the past weekend. He is teaching and coaching at the Belmont High School just out of Charlotte. Be sides being an ace on the “hard wood", “Red ’ is well known in these parts as a “lady killer” and one swell fellow. — We notice quite a few pipes puffing around j If this stuff smells to you the campus.

Bear with those smokestakes boys, it’s the only way to really look “collitch” —Has anyone noticed a putrid odor? That smell, my “franz”, is the Elon spirit shown at the High Point game by the students. The cheerleaders are ok if they pick up just a little more “umph”. No stuff, we really smell as far as support is concerned. How we can fotget last year so quickly is a mystery. — The freshman who gets my slap on the back is Wil- mont Milbury, who hails from Trenton, N. J. It looks as though he is going to see more action than the average freshman. — Says Laurence Leonard “Virgin Yow’s boys are going to surprise Elon's Christians”. Did they? — Charlie Hamrick and his boys have been called to the home of your's truly to play for a Rotary Club Minstrel and Dance. This means that the boys will probably get a few jobs in the future down in the eastern part of the state. — ‘guys this there would be more sickness, or a lower health level because many students would eat very ir- reqular. Miss White also states some of its ad vantages, saying that by such a method the stu dents could be charged according to what they ate. The boys who eat such great quaritities now would have to come across or disappoint their appetites. The girls would probably get out cheaper than they do now.

From all we hear, the weinie roasts aren't up to last year's. “Parties”, will be bigger and bet ter this year. The fellows can stay home and join in the fun on Saturday nights instead of join ing the happy bunch at Shaws. It’s really something to get all excited about — just like College! If you missed this one, get on the glad rags and come on out to the next one. There seems to be at least one person on this campus who shouldn’t be here. She’s a Frosh (from Virginia) whose boon com panion must certainly be a dic tionary. Just in ordinary conver sation the other day she described something or other as changing with “logarithmic rapidity”. Now really, she is not of us—she should be somewhere where one meets a genius every hour or two. Old hopeful at the bat, again: We suggest to the management of the drug store that more and bet ter seating accomodations be in stalled. After all there are some 500-odd of us! Paul Shu, V. M.

The most conspicuous example of what may be unintentional misunderstanding this fall is the unnecessary noise in the library. ugliness of life.

If you must carry on a con versation, take it outside in the colonnades. We realize that, with as many students us ing the library as there are this year, some noise is unavoidable: but as it is now the library sounds as if it were being used for a social hall. We tie school. And that wasn’t so far back, just '37. Our band is really swinging out this year in high style, and why shouldn't it with that capable lit tle lass step-step-stepping all around out in front of it? We really had a show at that un mentionable V. M. I. game; even the cosmopolitan Keydets admired it.

A college is a cooperative enterprise requir ing the cooperation of all of us. It is to our own advantage to try to keep the library a place in which we may study without too much distrac tion. THE DINING HALL Investigation of the' dining hall and food situation has produced the following informa tion, which we.pass on to you as food for thought: Dr. Smith declares that he wants a new din ing hall and is working toward that point just as fast as possible. The iww dining hall is to serve the entire student body on one shift. The Presi dent stated that the old dining hall may be used for a society hall. Until such plans may materialize, Dr. Smith says that he will greatly appreciate the students’ getting along with our present method of dining as best they can, and work with him. Incidentally, he says that the school is to make an effort to get a new dormitory, too. It may be stated that none of this is certain, but that such an aim is hoped to have results. The old college food gripe is an old tale. Here some students complain of the food, but yet those who fuss so may have even worse to eat in their own homes. It just seems to be a custom for a college fellow to say the food is punk upon being asked how it is Maybe it’s a tradition from the past, and it seems it will continue.
