TO Y. M. AND Y. W. C. A.
On Thursday evening the Associa
tions were very glad to hear Mr. J.
W. Bergtholdt, College Y. M. C. A.
Secretary for th 3 Carolinas, in the
interest of Association work in the
war. After a Scripture reading Mr.
Bergtholdt commenced his talk by
saying that there used to be just two
divisions of workers in war times,
the army and navy, but now there
are three, the army, navy, and Y.
C. A., for truly the latter goes
everywhere that the others go.
"In the Spanish-American war the
Y. M. C. A. did such splendid work
despite its many handicaps," said Mr.
Bergtholdt, "that when this war
broke out and Dr. John R. Mott of
fered the services of the Association
to President Wilson that President
Wilson at once recognized it and
gave it a place in which to work."
The Y. M. C. A. does so many things
that it is hard to enumerate them.
For one thing it has almost blotted
out gambling by establishing banks
where the money of the soldiers may
be deposited immediately on pay day
and thereby the temptation elimina
ted. The library is filled with books
fnr tho boyc roarl and t.hftse ari
always out. The Y. M. C. A. head
quarters in every camp contains a
room in which are to be found paper,
stamps and ink and over the table on
the wall ia a sign, "When have you
written to mother." "If the Y. M.
C. A. did nothing else more than help
the parents and friends of these boys

One of the most active interests at
Guilford just now is the Red Cross
work, which is being done thru the
medium of the Y. W. C. A. As it.
was not thought best to organize a
separate chapter, the work is being
done under' direction of the Red
Cross organization in Greensboro.
The opportunity to enlist in the
work was given to all members of
the Y. W. C. A. and it met a ready
response both from members of the
faculty and student body. The
classes in Home Economics have reg
istered for sixteen hours of work per
week, for the next three weeks, at
the end of which time it is though!
that all the work on hand will have
been completed.
Permanent headquarters, which
have been established in Foundei ?
Hall, present a busy scene. The con
stant whir of the sewing machines
testifies to the earnestness of those
who have undertaken that part of
the work. Activities, however, arc
not confined to headquarters, as we
are rem'nded by the clicking of knit
ting needles on every side. Fifteen
mufflers are nearing completion, and
fifteen soldiers will be made more
comfortable this winter because o!
the interest and industry of Guilfon
College girla.
In an evenly matched game of
i'ootball rn Hobbs field the Guilford
scrubs it mted the Winston-Salem
High School team by the score of 13
to 0. Both teams were in excellent
condition and showed great improve
ment since the former contest be
tween the two elevens. Every man
on the scrub team played good ball,
while for Winston Crute was the best
ground-gainer and Pulliam, the left
end, showed skill in tackling.
At the opening of the game Win
ston received at the north goal. Bar
nard kicked to Crute, who was down
ed on Winston's 35-yard line by Wil
son. In the first scrimmage Winston
gained five yards thru Guilford's line.
Barnard threw Winston for two suc
cessive losses on trials at end runs,
jrute then punted to Tremain, who
vas downed in his tracks. A one-
gain by Tremain, a six-yard loss
jy Newbold, and an unsuccessful for
ward pass forced the scrubs to punt,
.vlarlette downed the Winston runner
jack on his 20-yard line. Winston
gained five yards but in an attempt
xround right end Marlette forced
Winston back five yards. An at- ;
temnted forward pass intercepted by I
D. Finch, anu a .
yard run around right end, by Tre
main, placed the ball within four
yards of the goal line. A line plunge
oy Newbold gave the scrubs their
rst touchdown; Barnard failed tc
kick goal; Capt. Crute chose to re
ceive. Anderson tackled Pulliam on
Winston's 20-yard line. In two suc
cessive downs "Stubby" Finch crept
thru the line and threw Winston for
a five-yard loss. Stanley carried
Winston's punt to Guilford s 50-yard
line. An unsuccessful pass, a three
yard gain by Marlette, followed by a
15-yard penalty for holding forced
the scrubs to kick. Winston gained
ve yards in three downs, closing the
first quarter with the ball on Win
ston's 30-yard line. Score 6-0.
In the opening of the second quar
ter Crute carried the ball thru Guil
ford's line for Winston's initial first
lown. Being unable to make further
gains Winston punted to Stanley,
who carried the ball 15 yards to Guil-
Zord's 40-yard line. A two-yard gain
by Tremain, six yards by Newbold
one by Stanley and four yards by
Newbold gave the scrubs a first
wn. An eight-yard gain by Mar
ette around right end, together witn
3irnard's 36-yard run from forward
ass. gave the scrubs their second
touchdown. Barnard succeeded at
â– ;oal. Again Winston received and
luring the remainder of the quarter
neither team was able to make any
| loticable gains. The period closed
with the ball in Winston's possession
on the 50-yard line. Score 13-0.

The Guilford College tennis team
easily defeated a team representing
Lenoir on the college courts on las'
Monday afternoon. In spite of the
one-aided score the many spectator.--
found the game well worth seeing.
In the singles Fitzgerald for Guil
ford defeated Huffman of Lenoir, 6-2.
6-3. Huffman found it difficult to
handle Fitz' serve and the latter'o
drives to the Lenoir man's back hand
were always good for points. In the
doubles Fitzgerald and Fox, of Guil
ford, defeated Huffman and Jarrett,
of Lenoir, 6-3, 6-2. Both the Guil
ford men excelled at the net anci
forced Lenoir to reply with lobs,
which were easily handled.
The Zatasian Literary Society held

ri.e program for the evening was one
>f variety and interest.
The first number was a duet b\
luby Worth and Clara Belle Edger
jn. Eleanor Grantham in "Here
nd There" found many items of pe
uliar interest. Josephine McVev
ve a reading from John Charles
McNeil. Bernice Pike read a paper

entertaining and instructive. The

critic's report, after which society
Saturday evening, November 3, at
7:30 o'clock the first musical of the
j ear was staged in Memorial Hall.
Papworth, in a few well-chosen
words, welcomed the hearers and ex
plained the nature of the program
ior the evening—telling them that it
Aould be an evening with Tennyson
with a few selections of difierent
origin and nature.
Seldom, if ever, have Tennyson's
poems, "The Bugle Song" and "The
of Shalott" been more effective
ly or more feelingly interpreted than
they were on the occasion when
Prof. Balderston reaa them in such
an interesting and charming way to
nis hearers.
After the reading of "The Bugle
3ong," the members of the chorus
iang the poem in a manner reflecting
.redit upon themselves and upon
their able director, Miss Papworth.
The poem, "The Lady of Shalott,"
was explained in a most interesting
and logical manner by Prof. Brinton.
He showed how the sad, sweet story
portrayed the waking from dreams
LO reality; and how the curse upon
.lie Lady of Shalott falls upon many
maidens of today.
The cantata, bringing with it first
a_ breath of lightness and cheer, and
,ng armour, and finally in "Fairy
L.ady of Shalott" in all her sadness
pathos, was next given by a chor
us of twelve girls. The soloists of
the evening, Misses Moton arc
riobbs, interpreted their respective
themes in a beautfiul and sympathet
ic way.
After the cantata, the audience
joined in singing "America."
Then, gaily and cheerily, the ehor
as sang that rollicking sailor song.

i be Men's Glee Club fully lived up
to their well-established reputation
of last year and charmed their aud
jnce by their beautiful rendition or
'There's Tlusic in the Air" and "Sta.
of the Summer Night."
The evening closed with the sing
ing of that beautiful familiar melody,
so dear to the heart of every uui'-
Jordian, "Hail Dear Old Guilford."
