LET'S AT THEM, BOYS!
With the opening of the basketball
season every Guilford student should
feel the responsibility of the situa
tion. In no other game is the spirit
of the spectators reflected so quickly
or so accurately. If the spectators
are listless the playing is listless. If
the spectators are rowdy the playing
becomes rowdy and ill-ordered. Cow
bells and "lumber orchestras" have
no more place in the gallery thart
brass knuckles have on the floor but
the significant thing from the college
standpoint is the fact that the spirit
of these vociferous efforts to attract
attention to the performers them
selves is quickly transmitted to the
team with serious detriment to the
play. On the other hand spectators
every man of whom is intent on
every move of the game; spectators
cheering, even vociferously, because
they must; spectators devoid of the
•false and assumed dignity of the
jnan who is afraid of being caught
cheering for the losing team; such
spectators will win games consistent
The spirit .of the college outside of
the gymnasium is quite as important
as the spirit in the gallery. It is im
possible to drum up enthusiasm on
five minutes notice and it is even
more impossible to sing college songs
or give college cheers without prac
tice. The cheering during the two
practice games has been excellent
and with the co-operation of the rail
bogs can be made the best Guilford
has ever had. It is, of course, im
portant that your cheering should
not interfere with your seeing the
game but it is far more important
that your anxiety for the best seats
should not interfere with your cheer
ing. Upperclassman or underclass
man you must get right behind the
cheerleaders and root for your colors
with all the geist you have.
The singing needs much practice
and we should have some new snap
py songs for the big games. Waukie
Wau will make a very effective song
but it will require some good solid
work in basketball meetings to per
fect it. Cheer-leader Carroll expects
the co-operation of every man on the
campus during the coming weeks.
Only a case of mumps, certified to by
the attending physician, is sufficient
excuse for absence from these meet
ings. College spirit should run so
high that a man absenting himself
from them would be liable to a visit
from a party of night-riders. No
punishment is too severe ifor the man
who is so bound up in his own little
world of selfishness that he cannot
come out for these most important
meetings of college life.
On Friday morning the squad
starts for Wake Forest and every
man on the hill should be in front of
Cox Hall right after breakfast to
give them a rousing send-off. We
need these two games and upon the
college spirit will depend very large
ly our chances of winning.
E—X—A—M —S! What does
that spell for you? Trouble? Op
portunity? Work? Cram? Flunk?
It spelled all these things for Guil
ford students—yes and even more.
Go back in your memory to last
Monday morning. Did you not see
Lawrence Grissom come out of the
Physics Dab. with frowns all ovef
his usually calm brow? Well, for
Mm that exam, had meant trouble.
Then did you not see Leah Stanley
come out of "Prep Parlor" with a
contented smile, a confident tilt to
her head? To her, the Junior Eng
lish exam, was only an opportunity
to impart some knowledge to Prof.
And as a concrete example of the
work exams, bring just imagine how
Itimous Valentine must have toiled
to drown the few definite facts he
possessed about economics, in a
stream of hot air so copious and
withal so plausible as to win a fav
orable "ah, hem" from Prof. Wos
But, people didn't cram? Then
you didn't see that light in the cor
ner room at New Garden every night
burning until after two? And you
didn't notice how tired and worn
Ethel: Speas wais when Saturday
noon arrived? Yes, some people did
t And then—oh, how sad 'some
of them troubled, worked, crammed
and—flunked. Even June Stanley
nearly lost his Senior standing.
But, for all, each diay was one well
filled. The eight hour day law was
greatly a'bused and the poor workers
were forced to toil from sun up to
lights out and beyiond.
When the last blue book was
handed in, a gentle but expressive
sigh was given and even the most
worn out began to look forward,
with greia't anticipation to the bas
ketball game, which proved suffici
ently interesting 'to drown all the un
pleasant memories of the harrowing
week just passed.
