Y. M. C. A. LED
BY MR. MOORE
A SHORT TALK BY RUFUS KING.
The Y. M. C. A. on last Thursday
evening was led by E. A. Moore. He
took "Perseverance" for his subject
and dealt with it in a very clear, con
cise way. He defined perseverance in
the following terms;
"To persevere is to continue in a
given course in spite of discourage
ment in order to attain an end."
The leader pointed out the fact
that in order to be successful in the
business world a m*n must be perse
vering. "Decide on your own way;
then be persistent because there is
no one but yourself who can give you
success." Besides bringing success
it will also bring joy. When you
have done your work well, when your
lessons have been thoroughly pre
pared and recited then you can look
the world in the face and feel that
you have done your best.
In closing Mr. Moore said: "First
be sure you are doing the right thing
and then persevere."
After the leader had finished his
talk "Uncle Rufus King" gave some
very interesting remarks beseeching
his hearers "to stick to the bush,"
that is, he urged them to keep their
minds on their work. He also gave a
brief account oi his trip out West
and related a few incidents that took
place during his journey.

anaesthetized he was able to show
the blood circulation even in its tran

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C„ OCTOBER 11, 1916.
TO THE BAPTISTS
Quakers Unable to Stop Wake Forest
Attack During First Half lint Find
Themselves During the Last Two
In the first inter-collegiate foot
ball game in which a Guilford team
has participated since 1904, the
strong Wake Forest eleven defeated
the Crimson and Gray pigskin devo
tees by the score of 33 to 0. The
game was staged at Wake Forest and
played under the disadvantage of a
hot October day which was much
more conducive to a world's series
baseball game than to a football tug
of war. Despite the unusual heat
the game was splendidly contested
after the Quaker eleven once got un
The first half opened with Jones
for Guilford kicking off to Wake For
est and the ball was advanced fifty
yards. No score was made, however,
for some five minutes when Guilford
lost the ball on downs on her twenty
five yard line. Fullback Parker for
Wake Forest then went through left
guard for ten yards and Champion
carried the ball over on his second
successful plunge through the line.
The second score came as a result of
an intercepted forward pass and a
brace of end runs by Pace and Par
ker which netted the Baptists twenty
yards and the second touchdown.
The third touchdown was made by
Croom who carried the ball seventy
five yards through the Guilford team,
eluding several line men and shaking
off the back-field which attempted to
tackle him. It was easily the pret
tiest run of the game. The first quar
ter ended with the score 20 to 0.
In the second quarter, Guilford
showed more fighting spirit but the
heavy Wake Forest backfield which
outweighed the light Quaker backs
at least 20 pounds to the man, secur
ed two more touchdowns, totaling the
score to 33 to 0. In this quarter, the
Guilford eleven was slowly but sure
ly beginning to find itself; the heavy
Baptists no longer waded through
the Crimson and Gray without a fight
and the Quakers secured their initial
first down of the game which was
result of a forward pass, Semans to
The third quarter oegan with
Wake Forest kicking to Guilford.
Beeson received the ball for Guilford
and advanced it twenty yards. The
next down netted the Quakers three
yards and on the second plunge ten
yards and first down were secured.
Again the Wake Forest line was
pierced for a gain, this time for six
yards; only twenty yards now lay
between Guilford and a touchdown
and the team was fighting with a
spirit which it had not yet exhibited.
At this stage of the game, however,
the Baptists called their heavy back
field back into play, in order to stop
the rush. Parker, Croom and Face,
JESSE P. GARNER
who had been out of the game at the
time of the kick-off, were too power
ful and on the fourth down Guilford
was compelled to kick. During this
quarter the Wake Forest was held
safe and no additional score was
made. In the last quarter, Guilford
again threatened the Wake Forest
goal. Jones recovered a Wake For
est fumble and advanced the ball to
the thirty yard line. A line plunge
and a penalty gave eight yards more
but the Wake Forest line settled and
two downs resulted in no gains.
With the ball on the twenty yard
line, Jones attempted a drop kick
which was blocked and recovered by
the Baptists. The ball then see
sawed up and down the field, the
game ending with the ball on the
thirty yard line.
The game was not a defeat, in one
sense of the word, for the Guilford
team. With practically no experi
ence and with the usual nervousness
which characterized a new team, the
Quakers were swept off their feet in
the first half of the game. Fumbles
and poor tackling proved their un
doing. But as the game advanced,
the Crimson and Gray eleven began
to find itself and would have scored
on the Wake Forest second string
backfield within five minutes of the
opening of the third quarter if the
heavier and more experienced Bap
tist backs had not been sent in to
ward off the score.
From the standpoint of the Quak
ers, the work of Captain Jones at
right end was not lacking in merit;
llollowell at fullback was effective in
line plunging, while Zachary, Lloyd
and Garner were strong men in the
Guilford line. The entire line was
not as weak as the score suggests
since most of the scoring was a result
of end runs, 70 per cent, of the oppo
nent's gains being made in this way.
This was due to the poor work of the
Quaker tacklers. Jonas seemed to
be the only man in the backfield who
would tackle low and effectively.
The supreme weakness of the eleven
is their tackling, which is partially
explained by the absence of a tack

Y. W. C. A.
Last Thursday evening Miss Julia
White conducted the Y. W. C. A.
meeting. Miss Julia always comes
to us with a message, a message that
appeals to girls and one that they
She took as a basis for her talk,
Matthew 23:23. She said the ten
dency of the time is to allow the
prayer meetings to become too much
a matter of form; they lack some
thing of reverence of spirituality
which used to characterize former
days. The meetings are left too
much to the leader alone. "We need
in our meetings," she said, "that
deep spirituality which just bubbles
over." People need to get so into
the spirit of worship that it is impos
sible to refrain from saying some
thing. She told of some prayer meet
ings held at Guilford years ago which
had impressed her so much and she
pointed out that it was the spontane
ous utterances from the heart that
leaves the deepest impression.
The meeting was thrown opeii for
discussion. Several responded, mak
ing some impressive talks.
Again the attention of all the girls,
the new ones especially, is called to
the annual Battle Ground picnic, to
be held next Saturday.
A VERY INTERESTING PROGRAM
RENDERED BY CLAYS.
The political campaign was opened
in earnest at Guilford Friday night,
October 6th, when the Clays hal for
discussion the question, Resolved,
"That the present prosperity of the
country is due more to the present
administration than to the European
war." The affirmative was upheld
by H. Moore and J. Stanley. They
pointed out the laws which have been
passed by the government which
would naturally increase the prosper
ity of the country.
The negative, E. B. Carroll and C.
Lassiter, held that for the five
months of Wilson's administration
before the start of the European war,
the imports of the country exceeded
the exports. This, they said, was
contrary to the maintenance of good
economic conditions. Both sides dis
cussed the question from a political
standpoint. The judges, Messrs.
Zachary, Sherrill and Kiser decided
in favor of the negative.
The following officers were elect
ed: E. A. Moore, president;Zachary,
vice-president; Townsend, secretary;
Lloyd, assistant secretary; Casey,
