"COLLEGE SPIRIT."
The expression "'ollege Spirit'
is frequently used in any student
body, but when we look around us
to see what it is purported to be
we stop in wonder. Is it some
thing indescribable that holds each
one within the limit of his own
little world of social endeavor?
Is it that which makes a college
boy or girl feel that it is his or
her duty to pour over some book
all the time and be of no benefit
to the college or to his neighbor?
Is "College Spirit" something that
puffs a student up and makes him
feel that he is "it"—better than a
student from another college? If
it is this we do not want any col
lege spirit. But is it something
that tells us to support everything
concerned with athletics but to
be sure to neglect other phases of
college life? This seems to be the
general idea of "college spirit,"
but we should not only be inter
ested in athletics, we should also
support every other activity thai
is upbuilding or beneficial to the
college.
It should be an irresistible im
pulse to act with due and sym
pathetic regard for the rights and
wishes of others. It should be so
elevating that it would raise the
brow-beaten man from the dust of
humiliation and place him on a
higher level.
The (iuilfordian Board wishes
that something might be said or
done that would arouse a deeper
interest in Guilford and her work
ings. Every one, if he is at all ac
quainted with the college, should
feel interested iu its activities and
how they are carried on.
There is no better- way by which
college spirit can be aroused than
by contributing to the columns of
the GUILFORIUAN your views on
anything of interest to Guilford.
So to the student body, faculty,
alumni and old students we ex
tend a hearty invitation to ex
press their views at all times on
any matter of interest: to our col
lege.
PHI LOMATHEAN NOTES.
The Philomathean Literary So
ciety began the new term on the
evening of January 29th with the
following program :
Debate, Resolved, That the Uni
ted States should adopt a mini
mum wage law. Affirmative, Ad
die .Morris; negative, Katliryn
I )orset t.
Recitation —Georgianna Bird.
Selection from Saniantha at
Saratoga—Maleta Macon.
Solo —Ruth Coltrane.
Three Good -Jokes—Annie Mae
Prince.
The speakers in the debate up
held their respective sides in an
excellent manner, and the other
numbers on the program were
also well rendered.
This being the regular time for
the election of new officers the fol
lowing were elected: President,
Louetta Knight; secretary, Bessie
Guthrie; marshal, Hazel Arm
strong. A new executive commit
tee, consisting of Catherine Wat
kins, Deborah Brown and Ruth
Coltrane, was appointed. By vote
of the Society it was decided not
to have a meeting next Friday
night, so that the members might
attend the mock trial to be given
in Memorial Hall by the Webster
ian and Henry Clay Societies.
After an excellent critic's re
port by Miss Moton, the meeting
adjourned.
ADDITIONS TO THE EQUIPMENT
OF THE LABORATORIES.
The efficiency of the Physical
and Chemical laboratories has
been greatly increased by the in
stallation of a six-horse power
kerosene engine, a 3% kilowatt
direct current generator and a
rotary compressor and vacuum
pump. The dynamo is run direct
ly from the engine and supplies
both the Physical and Chemical
laboratories with a 110 volt direct
current. This is available at all
times, and is of great help on dark
days or when the lantern is need
ed during recitation hours, doing
away with the necessity, particu
larly in the Biology Department,
of holding lectures at night. A
pipe line, connected with the gas
machine of the Chemical Depart
ment and the rotary pump in the
Physics laboratory, has been laid
between Memorial Hall and King
Hall, thus supplying the latter de
part nlent with illuminating gas.
The connections are so made that
both laboratories are supplied
with a vacuum to 8 mm. of mer
cury and compressed air to 30 lbs.
to the square inch. A 14 volt
storage battery current is also
available in both laboratories.
The pump is run from a counter
shaft, and a lathe for wood and
iron working is soon to be in
stalled.
