son-Bicke'tt Cluib.

ed: I. T. Valentine, of Spring Hope,
president; J. G. Recifllck, of Trinity,
vice-president; Grace Taylor, of Dan
bury, secretary; J. P. Garner, of
Asheboro, treasurer.
The club expects to make a study
of the Democratic party and its is
sues. Badges and literature have
been secured and will be distributed
among the members.
The club considers itself quite for
tunate in securing the Hon. T. W.

"The Triangle Life"
Prof. George Gives Scholarly Talk
to Young Men.
The Y. M. C. A. was fortunate in
having Prof. George to lead the
Thursday evening meeting. He took
for his topic "The Triangle Life." In
•the beginning he pointed out the fact
that the triangle, which symbolizes
spirit, mind and body, was very sig
nificant of a person's life. "Just as
the circle is an emblem of eternity
so is the triangle an emblem of life."
The leader said that the Brahmins
tried to deny the reality of physical
life but "the physical world is a part
of God's world so do not neglect the
physical world. To live a Christ life
is to live a life of spirit, mind and
body for the philosophy of the trian
gle is the philosophy by which we are
to guage our lives. Any one neglect
ing it will not be symmetrically de
veloped."
In closing, the leader said that
Christianity did not cramp any one.
If spirit, mind and body are develop
ed in their proper proportions com
plete fullness of life would result.
But the physical or bodily side is not
complete within itself because it
must have the mind for its ally. He
said that unless a person had a
strong, well developed mind he was
a weakling not only in the sight of
his fellow man but to the world at
large. Without this important fac
tor he could not grasp new thoughts
or explore unknown fields.
In order to have a true triangle it
is essential to add the third side,
which is the spirit. This last part
has its place in the life of every one
just as much as the other two.

Y. W. C. A. PICNICERS
VISIT BATTLE GROUND
GIRLS REVEL IN SONGS, "MOT
DOGS," AUTUMN GLORIES AND
PERSIMMON PUDDING.
To say that last Saturday was an
ideal day for a Y. W. C. A. picnic, is
merely suggestive of how much hazy
purple mists, veiling far away hills
from autumn sunshine and red,
brown and yellow leaves can add to
such an outing.
Never did a happier crowd of girls
fill five two-horse wagons, that is,
fill the wagons after they had been
filled with quilts, pillows and good
things to eat. Everybody had the
best wagon. If the horses were not
the most desirable, the driver was
the best, or the wagon was the most
comfortable or the crowd the most
congenial.
The Battle Ground was reached too
soon for the muse was along; conse
quently there were many clever songs
and yells which kept up a friendly
rivalry between the wagons.
As soon as the wagons reached the
gateway the girls began to pile out
and divide into smaller groups. Of
course the monuments wore most in
teresting to 'the new girls, but those
who had been there before were at
tracted farther on where, surrounded
by a riot of autumn colors, Lake Wil
fong threw her clear reflections.
After much walking, talking, and
kodaking, the girls finally turned to
wards the spring. There they found
that Mr. Wakefield had arrived on
the scene of action with several bas
kets of grapes. Amid a confusion of
thanks the baskets were soon empty.
In a large open space near the
spring a real camp fire had been kin
dled. Over this a large kettle of
Miss Gainey's picnic coffee had begun
to send forth its fragrant announce
ment that it was nearly supper time.
The hungry girls needed no further
urging and soon a circle was formed
around the fire.
Miss Edwards took charge of the
usual service. North Carolina songs
were followed up by Guilford's pa
triotic lays and then Miss Edwards,
Bernice Pike and Mary Ina Sham
burger told about three revolution
ary heroines, Betsy Bowman, Theo
d'osia Burr and Flora Mac Donald.
These preliminaries only sharpen
ed the appetites. It is rather unfair
to tell about those pimento and ham
sandwiches, "puppies" and biscuits,
olives and pickles, and candy, cake,
marshmallows, and persimmon pud
ding, but pleasant recollections de
mand it. "Puppies" and marshmal
lows easily found their places on the
ends of long, sharp sticks before a
hot bed of coals. These with a pic
nic flavor of ashes and cups of scald
ing hot coffee finally satisfied the
famished spirits.
With a last, long glance towards
the dying camp fire the girls clamber
ed into the wagons just as sunset
flamed in the sky. The homeward

ride was well worth any ordinary pic
nic for the joyful spirits again over
flowed in all sorts of songs.
The wagons came slowly past Me
morial and all too soon reached
Pounders, where they reluctantly un
loaded a crowd of happy, hoarse girls
whose next thought was the prosaic
idea of a concert.
HARD PRACTICE. FOR THE
SPENCER GAME.
Since the Guilford-Wake Forest
game, the local squad has been un
dergoing some strenuous practice to
straighten out the kinks in its ma
chine. As was manifested in this
game, the local men lacked the art
of tackling. During the past week
tackling practice has been given and
it is evident that the team has been
strengthened very much by the ef
fort. Some changes have been made
in the line and several new plays are
being tried out.
In the game with Wake Forest,
Garner, our center, suffered a wound
ed knee, but he is again able to be
on the field, and go thru the regular
routine of play.
Newlin has been out of the game
this week, but it looks as tho he
will soon be able to take again his
stand in the ranks.
The other memtbers of the team are
in good shape and are confident of
winning the game Saturday, October
21st, with the Spencer Atliletic Club.
This club always puts out good teams
and will give the local corps a hard
battle.
Prof. Woosley has been recently
making arldreses at various township
Sunday School conventions. On Oc
tober Bth he spoke at Bethlehem
Church and on the 15lth at the James
town township convention. He Is
scheduled to address two meetings
next Sunday, the 22nd.
REPUBLICANS
HOLD CONVENTION
The Republican boys and girls of
the college held a meeting in Memo
rial Hall on October 11th. The
meeting was called to order by R. L.
Newlin, of Alamance county, tem
porary chairman. He explained the
purpose of the meeting which then
proceeded to election of officers. The
following were elected: Carroll, of
Stokes, chairman; Hinshaw, of Ran
dolph, vice-chairman; Addie Morris,
of Forsyth, secretary; Rhesa Newlin,
of Alamance, and Maude Lassier, of
Randolph, marshals. After the pres
ident had been installed he gave a
very interesting talk. He then ap
pointed a campaign committee com
posed of Grissom, chairman, Stanley
and Sutton. This committee has al
ready secured several good speakers.
The canvassing commiittee found
that there are eighty Republicans in
college, fifty boys and thirty girls.
The speakers, which have been se
cured by both Democratic and Re
publican clubs, will give the students
some useful information regarding
the policies of the two great parties.
The Consecration of Time
Miss Spews Talks to V. W. C. A.
Members.
This week the Y. W. C. A. meeting
was led by Ethel Speas. She chose
as her subject "The Consecration of
Time." The Scripture lesson was
taken from the third chapter of
Ecclesiastes.
The leader opened the meeting by
saying that there is a time for every
thing; and that we have more time
than anything else! She then told
how we go thru the whole week. Be
ginning with Blue Monday and put
ting off on the following days our
hardest work until the last minute,
we find ourselves by the middle of
the week in a complete muddle.
"We forget," continued the speak
er, "that we have time "to take exer
cise, we forget that we have time to
come to prayer meeting. If we
/should look matters squarely in the
face we find that we waste a good
deal more time than we think we
can possibly spare. Our aim should
be to adjust ourselves to circum
stances and we shall find the hardest
task becomes a great deal easier.
After the leader's talk she asked
each member of the Association to
express a few personal sentiments
and some good responses were made.
"THANKSGIVING'S COMING."
When de angels come and paint de
leaves
Wid brown and red and gold,
When de sky is sofit and still
And de air is teched wid cold,
When de corn am in de corn bin
and de fodder in de lof;
Den be breezes gin to whisper
Thanksgivin' ain't fur off.
