Stunt Social
The annual Stunt Social was
held on Saturday evening. May 1,
under (lie auspices of the rinis
tian Associations. At .">:;>() sup
per was served to the entire stu
dent body on the campus. Then
llie stunts began. The first was a
satire on the first year Biology
class. The participants were the
members of that class and tliev
succeeded in presenting it in a
very characteristic and at the
same time laughable manner. The
main feature of the class was a
lecture given by Harrell Budd, im
itative of Prof. Geiser, whose sub
ject was "A Survey of the Field
of Biology."
The next was a burlesque on col
lection held by the governess.
This consisted of heart to heart
talks, bits of advice, and the ad
dition of a few more rules for the
girls to obey. Georgianna Bird
played the part of .Miss Louise.
A "Baby Show" followed. We
easily recognized that the tiny ( ?)
infants were some we had seen at
times figuring on the athletic field
and in the gymnasium. They look
ed very innocent and passive with
their bits of candy. The prize of
fered for the best developed and
prettiest baby was awarded to lit
tie Tommy Zachary.
This was followed by a chemis
try class conducted by Densmore
Wood. It is not too much to say
that we learned several new things
about chemistrv.
The last blunt was a .solo given
by the famous Italian soprano,
Madame Tetrazini. The audience
was much impressed with the mas
culinity of her voice.
A social hour on (he campus fol
lowed the stunts. This was espe
cially enjoyable since we so sel
dom are allowed the privilege of
being out in the open at night.
The Guilford College Commun
ity Club had an interesting meet
ing 011 last Thursday evening to
which the college students were
invited. Mr. Mcliane, head of the
Pig Club in North Carolina, gave
an illustrated lecture 011 his
branch of work, and Dr. Alexan
der, president of Farmers' I* 11 ions
in this State, explained the value
of organizations in general and
urged the importance of farmers'
unions
Miss Dorothy Foltz, of Winston-
Salem, was tlie week end guest of
Harriet Holton.
GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., MAY 5, 1915.
GUILFORD SPLITS EVEN
Second Team Activities—Tennis With Elon—Quakers
Closed Season Saturday.
Guilford closed her season Sat
uvday and split even in the college
games played, winning seven and
losing seven. On Tuesday after-
noon she met the strong Universi
ty of Sonth Carolina leain and
won - to o in a pretty pitchers'
duel between Murchison and
Adams, in which Murchison gain
ed the advantage, Both teams
fielded well and a line exhibition
was given. Davis, the first man
up, reached lirsl on an error, and
scored on Short's fhree-base hit.
Groome followed him with anoth
er hit for three cushions, scoring
Short. These were the only runs
made during the game. After this
Adams settled down and yielded
only two more hits. Only three
hits were made off Murchison (lur
ing the whole game, and fifteen
men were struck out.
The next afternoon Wofford
was defeated in ;i slugging match
ir> to 5. Guilford hit almost at
will and failed to score in only
two innings. The;, weie never in
danger, and stole live buses. The
Wofford hoys also made many er
rors. Short was hit fairly hard,
but was able to keep the hits scat
tered. Wiggins, of Wofford, gain
ed four safeties out of five trips to
the plate. T. Short gained a
homer, two three-base hits and a
single, while Davis garnered two
for three bases, and Fu troll one.
Wofford gained twelve safeties,
but were held on the bases.
The last two games were played
away from home, at I*. of X. C.
Friday and Wake Forest Satur
day. Carolina won in the eighth
inning when six runs were made
before they could stopped. Fn
lii ibis it looked as if Guilford
had Hie game for Murchison was
going well, and we had the Caro
lina boys two to one. but Wood
all's homer tied the score and
then they started a batting rally,
which iu connection with a walk
and an error netted live runs.
Williams yielded only seven hits
while Murchison held them to
eight safeties, five of which were
garnered in the eighth.
The last game was played with
Wake Forest Saturday in a slow
and uninteresting match in which
our team put up about the worst
exhibition that they have yet
staged. Numerous errors were
made, and these coupled with sev
eral hard safe hits caused the de
feat. Short was unable to stem
the tide, and Murchison who had
pitched the day before likewise
waR unable to slop the onslaught.
