Elon Ends Grid Year Undefealed:
Will Not Re-Set Caneelled (Contests
The Elon College footbill
squad, undefeated and untied
for the year, closed its 1957 cam
paign with last Saturday's de
cisive 20 to 7 victory over Le
noir Rhyne. This fact was as
sured when Elon’s faculty ath
letic committee voted on Mon
day not to re-schedule two games
which were cancelled by Ca
tawba and Western Carolina due
to influenza outbreaks at those
In making the decision not to
re-schedule the cancelled games,
the Elon athletic officials took
into consideration the tact that
the Christians, due to the can-
cellati'jns, lacked one of play
ing the five North State Confer
ence games that are required by
existing lnoi> rules to qualify ?3r
the Conference title.
The athletic committee also
considered the fact the final Fall
Quarter examinations were to be
gin at Elon on Thursday of this
week and will continue until
Thank-sgiving, followed by holi
days for the entire student body
and the beginning of a new Win
ter Quarter on December 2nd.
To have re-scheduled either or
brath of the cancelled games
would have conflicted with the
scholastic program which thus
looms for the Elon students.
*The formal statement issued
Monday night by the athletic
committee through the office of
President J. Earl Danieley fol
■‘The faculty Athletic Com
mittee of Elon College, to avoid
conflict wi'h final examinations
and with the impending close of

voted today to abide by the ori- |
ginal football schedule. This de

Elon College football squad with ,
the final game of the regular I
season at Lenoir Rhyne last Sat- :
urday. The final examinations
for the fall term get underway
Thursday, November 21, and the
Winter term will begin on De
cember 2, immediately after the
Thanksgiving holiday period."
In taking this action, the Elon
faculty committee left the final
award of the 1957 Norih State
C’onfererc? football title er.tiiely
up to the Conference in.sclf. The
football championship is always
awarded officially by the Con
