GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C„ JANUARY 20,
QUAKERS DEFEAT A. & M. IN
CLOSE AND EXCITING GAME
Great Improvement of Team Arouses Students' En
(inilford won her lirst victory
Saturday evening when she de
feated the strong quinlet from A.
& M. on her home floor. From
the start the game was hotly con
tested, and a hard fight was made
for every goal shot. The playing
was quick and snappy, and
throughout the whole game keen,
wholesome rivalry was shown.
Although the A. & M. team out
weighed ours by at least fifteen
pounds to the man, they did not
have 11111 * 11 advantage on account
of the quickness of our men.
Numerous fouls were called, lint
these were not of a personal na
ture and tended in no wav to mar
the game. Guilford started the
scoring by shooting a foul, and
from this the score was very close
throughout the whole first half.
A. & M. would score then Guil
ford, but at last the Farmers
forged a point or two ahead and
managed to hold their lead until
the end of 111; i 1 half, when the
score stood !) to 12.
Guilford came back strong iu
the second half, and showed by
the life and "pep" they put into
the game, that they were there to
win. The whole team worked to
gether, and did some of the best
passing that they have yet ex
hibited. A. & M. played a strong,
steady game during the whole
time, hut were not able to with
stand the spurt our team took in
the second half. Some parts of
the game was rather rough, yet
(his was due chiefly to the differ
ence of weight.
Spaulding, A. & M.'s fall center,
was the star of that aggregation.
He was fast, heady, and a sure
shot, making 12 of (lie 24 points
made by his team. Right forward
Dowd, and Mason, the right
guard, came next, each with two
field goals. The whole team was
able to make up in strength what
they lacked in skill, and kept our
boys working hard.
Wood and Jones played best
for Guilford. They worked to
gether like old men, and by their
quickness evaded much close
guarding. Wood's improvement
since the beginning of the season
was the cause of much comment,
and materially added to increas
ing our score. He shot Ave field
goals, and .Tones four. The final
score was 24 to 12(5.
The benefits of Sutart's coach
ing are beginning to show, so that
from now on we expect to see a
strong, fast aggregation repre
senting Guilford. The score was

Immediately after the game, a
general exodus was made to the
si ores, and woodpiles, while others
made ;i canvass to collect all the
oil Ihitl could be obtained in the
dormitories. All this was heaped
into a huge pile and such a bon
fire was never before seen at Guil
ford. The whole student body
was aroused by the victory, and
tliev celebrated until midnight.
THE GUILFORD BANQUET.
Some years ago it was custom
ary to have an annual Guilford
banquet at the most convenient
and accessible point, but for some
reason there lias been no Guilford
gathering of this nature since the
seventy-fifth anniversary in 11)12.
Recently, however, it has been de
cided to revive the custom by
holding a banquet in Greensboro
on February 13th next, to which
all alumni and old students are
most cordially invited. Those
who have the matter in hand are
arranging for a most delightful
evening. Speeches, music and a
splendid good time is in store.
Later through the columns of the
GUILFORDIAN a fuller announce
ment of the occasion will be made.
For the present it is desired mere
ly to announce the date and place
—February 13, 1915, at Greens
boro. It is sincerely hoped that
every Guilfordian, alumnus or old
student will bear the date in mind
and arrange to be present.
REV. E. J. HAROLD SPEAKS IN
Y. M. C. A.
Key. E. J. llarold, secretary of
Hie Social Welfare League of
Greensboro, was leader at our
meeting Thursday evening. After
reading a portion of the fourth
chapter of St. Luke, Mr. Harold
proceeded to speak of the new at
titude that the Church had taken
toward society and social develop
ment. The speaker declared that
the Church is fast realizing that
it must extend a helping hand to
those depressed by our ill ad
He said that certain remediable
evils are sapping out the very life
of a large portion of our popula
tion, and declared that present
conditions are indicative of ''some
thing wrong." Low wages, un
sanitary conditions, disease, and
vice, he mentioned as some of the
evils that menace our social life.
These unnatural conditions, he
continued, are worthy of consid
eration. It is real Christianity
to help those victims of evil cir
cumstances. They cannot rid
themselves of their burdens.
The church has begun to realize
its duty to these unfortunate ones.
As a result of such realization it
is taking into its hands some of
our social problems. The results
will be far-reaching. When the
church and church members di
rect their energies toward reliev
ing oppressed humanity Chris
tianity will be vital and religion
will rest on a higher plane.
ZAT ASIAN NOTES.
The Zatasians have come back
since the holidays with a new de
termination to make the Society
staml tor what it has always
stood. We felt keenly the loss of
some of our strong members, but
others are gradually stepping into
their places and the work is now
going 011 as smoothly as before.
The program for January 15th
was given with great interest.
Every number showed work and
thought. Two especially good
numbers were a recitation, "The
Soldier's Pardon," by Miss Ed
wards, and a solo, "The Mission
of a Rose," by Miss Crouch. We
find that from time to time much
benefit is derived from the music
rendered, therefore we are plan
ning to work up some splendid
musical numbers for the following
meetings which will give the mem
bers a rare opportunity for becom
ing acquainted with some of the
