BASKET BALL PROMISING
Since Poak has had the basket
ball squad in charge for the past
month, lie has developed a team
that will surprise those who see !!
in action for the first time. The
boys work together as one man,
so that the team work is as good
as it has been in the past seasons,
and the passing has reached a
very creditable stage. With thn
rapid change Guilford is much
more optimistic, and the whole
student body is behind the team
to support it to the last.
The Cabinet has chosen W. F.
Brinkley cheer leader, and with
bis natural ability in this line he
hopes by the co-operation of the
whole student body, to develop a
system of cheering that will be
far better than it lias been in the
past, and will be a more substan
tial support to the team.
At this time the first team can
not be given because it is entirely
a matter of who plays the best
that will determine the positions
for the men.
Benbow Jones has made great
improvement since last year as
sub., and is playing an excellent
Lawrence Stuart is a true shot
at the goal, and with his passing
ability, aids the whole team.
Perhaps the man that has made
the greatest improvement is G.
Groome. He has developed into a
good center, is passing well, and
a good shot.
Futrell is playing a good game
at guard, and keeps with his man
in splendid style.
Semans is one of the best pass

and center, and is a valuable man.
Dalton Smith is playing a good
forward, and has a good eye for

Poak left for the University of
North Carolina Dec. 1, coach at
that place. Since then Luther

of physical director here, and
from the way he goes at the work
he promises to make an excellent
coach. Like Doak, Stuart has

boon a student here, and is ac
quainted witli the place. Those
who have been acquainted with
Iho college for the past few years
know of his fast work both in
base ball and basket ball, lie
was the man around whom such a
fast infield was built, and also
was one of the best guards who
have (ever represented (inilford.
Besides this, Stuarl has had ex
perience in professional ball, be
ing a member of the Winston-Sa

lie now has in charge the basket
ball squad, and is fast rounding
it into shape, and working hard to
have the team in perfect condition
by the time the season begins.
Stuart is popular here, ami we
feel sure that he will be a great
aid in athletics.

REV. CLYDE TURNER AT Y.
On last Thursday evening at
the regular meeting, Rev. A. Clyde
Turner, pastor of the First Bap
tist church of Greensboro, spoke
to a large crowd of the boys. He
chose as his subject 'The Pur
pose of Life."
The question for every one to
confront is what shall he do with
that God-given life. Life is con
trolled bv one central thought,
passion or ideal and Ibis deter
mines our career as does the cur
rent the course of a stream. No
man is any better than bis heart's
purpose. Individuals are con
trolled by different passions or
thoughtsjsonie have the passion
for money, others the passion for
pleasure, and others still other
Paul before bis conversion on
the road to Damascus had as bis
controlling motive the perseeu
tion of Christ, but when changed
he could say, "For me to live is
Christ" and henceforth he was de
voted to the great work of serving
Christ. Life is short, generations
swiftly pass away unnoticed. Life
is so uncertain—today's opportun
ities are all that we have at our
command and these are soon gone
never to be recalled. We cannot
return to the past. In view of
these things the serious question
is what are we making of this
Our eternal estates are what
we make here on earth and in pro
portion to our service here will
our reward be in eternity. Every
life to be a success must be linked
with God and any life that is not
linked with Christ cannot suc

visit of Rev. Mr. Turner and
everybody was highly pleased
with his discourse.
