GUHiPORD OOLJxEGE, N. C., MAY 28, 1919
Annual Event Pull of Clever Im
Once again on Saturday evening,
May 19, the students and faculty
assembled to enjoy the annual Stunt
Social. It has often been said that
the Stunt Social is the most enjoy
able social event of the year, but the
one on last Saturday evening even
surpassed past records.
At six o'clock the bell sounded,
and with hearts filled with expect
ancy, a happy throng gathered
around the tables that had been
spread in front of Founders. The
tables were uncovered and what a
view hit the eyes of the spectators!
Huge piles of all kinds of sandwich
es, pickles, cake, iced tea and a vast
amount of ice cream were spread in
a vista before them. Yet the
amount and variety did not daunt
the crowd. They went bravely to
their task, and they did it so well
that scarcely a crumb was left.
Immediately after supper the
stunts began. The seniors gave a
home scene at Dr. Binford's. It was
followed by a view of a breakfast
at Pounders, by the Juniors, with
Luby Casey as Mrs. Tomlinson. The
audience next caught a glimpse of
things as they transpire in the pres
ident's office. The sophomores sure
ly did have a good idea of what took
place there. The last stunt was by
the freshmen, giving a picture of
chapel with Grady Mcßane as Dr.
Every stunt was well gotten up.
The judges, Miss Edwards, Mrs. Car
roll and Professor Brinton gave the
prize, a huge box of candy, to the
All during the evening various
people had been casting longing
glances at each other, and it was
not long before the brilliantly light
ed campus was dotted thickly with
couples. Prom the happy look on
the face of each one it must be con
cluded that the latter part of the
evening was spent as happily as the
first. But even good times cannot
last always and at 10 o'clock the
Stunt Social of '1!) passed into the
land of happy remembrances.
ZATASIANS FINISH YEAR'S

DURING THE WEEK
Dean I Sri nt oil Gives Reception to
The chief social event occurring
during the week of May 11 was one
of the most delightful occasions of
the year. This party given by Pro
fessor Brinton at lifs rooms in Cox
Hall consisted of a reception for the
seniors, to which the members of the
faculty were invited.
Under the skillful direction of the
host all feeling of restraint was im
mediately lost in the genial inter
course and in stimulating entertain
ment. Having greeted the repre
sentatives of the "younger set," the
members of the faculty, as well as
the students, were given an oppor
tunity of ascertaining what terms
used in tennis and in baseball were
represented by two collections of pic
ture puzzles. A third group of puz
zles contained the names of certain
seniors. In this contest of wits Miss
Ruth Coltrane and >.?r. Joseph White
proved themselves superior to the
Qther guests. As prize winners each
received an attractive copy of the
poems of Robert Service.
In the latter part of the evening,
after their mental exertions, IHQ
guests received delicious refresh
ments, and what more shall we say
for the time would fail us if we
were to tell of sandwiches, olives,
ice cream, candy, strawberries,
punch, the almonds, macaroons and
The college community has had
occasion to feel deeply grateful to
Professor Brinton for many hours
of wholesome, happy relaxation and
recreation; the senior party formed
a fitting climax of the social events
of our college year.
Seniors Entertained at Hobbs House
On Friday evening, May 17, Dr.
and Mrs. I-lobbs entertained the se
nior class in honor of their daugh
ter, Gertrude. The entertainment
was in the form of a garden party.
The guests were met at the door
by Dr. and Mrs. Hobbs, who piloted
them through the flower garden by
a path which had for its goal the
punch bowl. After they had
quenched their thirst with the gold
en nectar they saw chairs and
swings, which were soon occupied.
And then came the supper, which
was served on the lawn by Miss
Hobbs, assisted by Miss Gertrude
Mendenhall and Miss Anne Sham
burger. Such an abunciunce of good
things, as there was real ham sand
wiches besides lettuce and pimento
and then' strawberries and cake and
The one tragedy of the evening
came all too soon—the Founders
bell rang for Society and every one
speedily departed—not, however,
until everyone of them had in his
characteristic way expressed to the

The class ol' 1919 were very for
tunate in having their baccalaureate
sermon delivered by Dr. Trueblood,
The sermon opened by congrega
tional singing, followed by a prayer
by President Binford. ' Mr. Guev
chenian gave an inspiring solo,
which was followed by the sermon
of the morning.
Dr. Trueblood gave a general ap
plication of the parable of the drag
net, with the hopeful outlook it
gives life. Every livo young person
must live in hope that the Kingdom
of God was coming among men, as
the will of Godr is realized in hu
man society. As an aid to this every
Christian must endeavor to elim
inate from our society the lurking
monstrosities of evil. Indifferent to
calumny, these evil agents must be
dragged from the deaths of hiding
out on the high landmark of pub
licity. Such an adventure full of
danger must of necessity arouse the
militant virtues of every college
All life must be guided by the
Master Fisherman. In harmony
with His will life will be one hope
ful endeavor to realize the elimina
tion of evil in this society of ours,
in this potential Kingdom of God.
