SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1938
MAROON AND GOLD
For Girls’ Athletics
Things a lot of us would like:
A modern athletic stadium for
Elon teams. A stadium suitable
for high class football and base
ball, which will hold thousands of
persons. There is a need for it.
North Carolina is gradually be
coming more sport conscious every
year. And the class of athletics
displayed at Elon is definitely on
the up grade. They both work to
gether. The nearby cities of Bur
lington and Greensboro are large
enoughlo support our teams. Big
name colleges could be booked
and crowds are sure to follow. I
The whole thing could be worked,
out through the W. P. A. j
To be up in Philadelphia today
to see our boys go to work against
La Salle. For the first time this
year the full first string will be
able to play. Lee Fones and Char
lie Pitman, erstwhile injux’ed
members, are ready to swing back
into action. They will join Shel
ton and Golombek to round out a
smooth clicking backfield. Saeck-
er, Causey, and Brannon will, be
a little more polished; and they
should team up well with Cap
tain Archie Israel, “Jay Bird”
Fritts, Ben Hurst, and Art Lea,
to complete a formidable line.
Parker, Donato, Milbury, Palan-
tonio, Kazlow, and several others
are bound to see some of the fire
Mrs. Hendrickson, director of
women’s athletics, (play teacher)
has arranged an extensive pro
gram for the semester. Ping Pong,
Shuffleboard, and Volleyball are
the three sports now under way.
Basketball practice will begin in
about a week with the different
classes competing. The third class
will fight it out with the winner
of the meet, between the first and
second class, to determine the
championship. Badminton, a new
game to the students of Elon, will
be introduced shortly. The new
Gym suits and the new equipment
for the various games have come
and all the girls are asked to come
and take advantage of them.
Competition is expected to be
much keener this year, due to the
fact that the enrollment is so much
larger than that of previous years.
However, each girl will have an
equal opportunity to show her
ability in her particular field. It
is hoped that the winner of these
series of games will have the op
portunity to compete with some
nearby girls’ college. This in it
self should prove a great incentive
for the betterment of intramural
FOOTBALL SCHEDULE FOR 1938
To be with Roland Longest
next weekend up in the Yankee
Stadium seeing a couple of the
World Series games. Have a good
time “Gourdhead”, and think of
us down here alongside the radio.
The intramural program is
really getting underway. There
is quite a bit of talk about it
going on already, and the season
_f:hould be a corker. j
The Great Jezeboo,
Or What Is It?
Jezeboo. It’s not another dance
craze or a new shop, folks. It's
just an old ‘‘T Model ’ Ford, one
that has gained quite a lot of
popularity in its old age.
We know you’ve seen it coming
up on the campus, chugging butj
never choking, and with its
flashy war paint on, ready to
challenge any new streamliner to!
prove its stamina.
It’s as up to date as any with,
its speed of 45 miles per hour, and
the brakes are perfect except for
the reverse brake and that is a
braintwister. When you stop on
the reverse it looks as if there is
mutiny among the wheels. The
front and back ones want to go
The accessories are nice too.
There’s a horn which works from
the footboard and a seating ar
rangement with the roll-call on
the floor. When there is a full
house, “Jezebee” looks swell (the
sides bulging out). It’s bound to,
though, with the little misses Vir
ginia Fowler, Celeste Bryant, Nell
Tingen and Kathryn Evans, to
We envy you, Paul Pittman, but
we like “Jezeboo”. . . • And the
ladies on the roll call.
Coach Power has announced his
intentions of having a touch foot
ball again this season, providing
the dormitories and day students
enter teams. He stated in chapel
last week that all the fraternities
had entered teams.
There seems to be a lack of in
terest among the students gener
ally except the fraternities. With
trophies being offered for the win
ners, and the chance to get out
and keep in shape it seems that
more enthusiasm would be mani
fested. The directions of intra
murals is under the capable of
Coach Power, and he is very much
interested in seeing a good intra
mural program here, but all he
can do is to offer his services. The
students have to show at least a
mild interest if intramurals are
to be a success at Elon. If your
dormitory hasn’t entered a team
call all of the fellows together,
and go into action. The time to
begin play has already passed.
Well, students, we are in for a
swell treat this weekend. Errol
Flynn, the co-ed's dream, will ap
pear in “The Adventures of Rob
in Hood,” tonight, in Whitley Au
ditorium. This picture is acclaim
ed as one of the outstanding films
of the year, bringing the famous
legendary character and his mer
ry men ■'to romantic and convin
cing life. To add to an exciting
story and an excellent cast, the
film is entirely in techni-color, em

trayals of war-time heroes.

here? Socially, we mean. Snip
and Snoop will lake care of the
gossip without any outside aid.
Our Society Editor, however,
doesn't have such long ears, so
she needs a little help in collect

campus. If your club of Frat
Sorority is having a big shindig,
you are having guests for the
weekend, or. lucky kid, are
heading for home for a spell,
we'd all like to know about it.
The Society Editor will probably
hear about some of it, but she
can't hear it all. How about
helping her? Just drop your
society notes in the Maroon and
Gold box attached to the Bulle
tin Board, and they will be duly
collected and printed. Thanks.

New Cheer Leaders
Pep It Up For Elon
We all can holler, whoop, and
yell, under the direction of our
newly elected cheer leaders for
this year. The student body has
spoken — and they- elected Gallo
way Walker, Lib Armfield, David
“Shorty” Corey, and Mary Bivins.
At the Elon-High Point foot
ball game, we were impressed
with the talent that these cheer
leaders displayed. Now that we
hav’e chosen our cheer leaders,
let’s all give them our wholeheart
ed support, and back our inter

VIRGINIA STAGE LINES
Elon opened its 1938 North
State Conference here today by de

The Panthers fought hard, but
were outclassed by the heavier

Big Joe Golombek paced the
Christians to victory by scoring
four of the touchdowns. One of
the scores was on a thirty-five
yard run after an intercepted pass.
Another was a thirty-one yard
gain off tackle.
Elon’s freshmen, who played
most of the game, showed us that
we have plenty of new talent.
High Point Game
Jawn Henery looked like an
All-American snagging those pas

half — Golembek was definitely

in practice for his date, (penalized
twice for holding). Laughon

long run in the third quarter. Earl

a few years back, officiated. Law
