On Saturday afternoon immediate
ly following the football game some
where between 11 and 22 men could
be seen in front of Cox Hall passing a
football among themselves as if pre
paring for a regular scrimmage.
They were running, jumping, falling,
wallowing and in fact were doing al
most everything that would be liable
to aid the progress of lawn diseases
and subject the front of this magnifi
cent building to the horrors of dis
figuration. Of course this was a case
of thotlessness on the part of these
fellows, to which we merely propose
calling attention, for we feel sure
that not a single one is devoid of that
keen sense of love for beautiful sur
roundings which would make him
take every precaution necessary to
preserve the natural appearance of
The fact is, if a window should be
broken or any similar damage done
and the guilty party should escape
unapprehended, the Athletic Associa
tion would be held liable by the col
lege, and forced to pay the cost of
For these reasons we emphatically
urge that the fellows desist from
such careless behavior and that they
take more time to reflect upon the
little things which affect the home
like qualities of our college life.
We are planning to run some is
sues of the Guilfordian in which the
greater part of the paper will be giv
en over to some particular subject.
For instance a New Garden number
will be put out about the first of Nov
ember containing an article on the
history and purpose of New Garden,
together with other things of inter
est from and about the people who
dwell in this domicile of wonders and
beauty. We warn all persons, partic
ularly New Garden inhabitants, who
have not subscribed to the college
weekly to get their names in before
the first one of the issues comes out
because it will be impossible to get
extra copies on the grounds at any
price. Other special numbers will be
issued dealing with the "Campus,"
"The Library," the various depart
ments of instruction, etc.

Have Interesting Meeting Debate
The Philomathean Literary Society
had a very interesting program last
Friday evening, October 20th. The
house was called to order by the
president, Mary Ina Shamburger, and
Sallie McGehee was appointed critic.
The program was:
1. Instrumental solo Beulah
2. Debate: Resolved that Wilson
should be re-elected.
3. Odds and Ends-—Bonnie Mae
4. Recitation—Dova Hay worth.
The debate was very ably present
ed by Eleen Raiford on the affirma
tive, who argued that Wilson had
kept the United States out of war;
had averted the railroad strike and
had given to the country the rural
credit system; while Maude Lassiter
on the negative, contended that the
President's foreign policy had been
a failure and that he had not lived
up to the platform upon which he
had been elected. The judges, Ruth
Coltrane, Leah Stanley and Donna
Mcßane, and also the vote of the
house, gave the decision to the af
We desire to congratulate the new
girls on the very excellent work they
are doing in Society and the interest
they are taking. We were very glad
to add the names JJT Anna Henley,
Clara McCracken and Ada McCrack
en to the Philomathean roll.
HONEST IS THE BEST POLICY.
"It has been well said 'Honesty is
the best policy' " were the first words
of L. E. Stuart, who led the meeting
of the Y. M. C. A. on Thursday even
ing. Honesty is one of the large
words in our language, for this word
stands for the very foundation for a
successful life. Honesty is an essen
tial element in a Ch/istian character,
and if any one expects to model his
life after the life of Christ, he will
surely try to maintain within his
mind the principles of this one word.
Character cannot be purchased. It
must be developed gradually, and at
the same time it must have a firm
foundation. Students should strive
to be loyal and honest to each other,
and have a greater determination to
serve others. It has been well said:
"Sow a thought, reap a word; sow
a word, reap an act; sow an act, reap
a habit; sow a habit, reap a charac
ter; sow a character, reap a destiny."
Then the thoughts of any one will
determine his destiny. Fellows think
about this one thing, and see if your
life is really what it should be in
order to have the most influence in
the right way."
