given under the auspices of the Phil
omathean Society. It proved to be
a great success both socially and
The social was conducted in Memo
rial Hall. Each Philomathean con
tributed a box beautifully decorated.
Much originality was shown in the
boxes, which were of various shapes,
sizes and colors. They contained all
sorts of fruits, sandwiches, candies,
pickles, cake, etc.
At the appointed hour when every
body had assembled Prof. Mark C.
Mills and Hugh Moore began the
sale of the boxes. Much "pep" and
enthusiasm was shown throughout.
The boxes ranged in price from $2.00
to $5.00 each.
Immediately after the sale of the
boxes came ,the time of feasting and
merriment. Those who were fortu

the dainties of the box.
Others were able to supply their
wants at a booth, where refresh
ments consisting of lemonade, candy,
peanuts, cake and various kinds of
sandwiches were served.
The last box was sold by guessing
for the lucky number at ten cents a
guess, the numbers running from
one to one hundred. Miss Isabel
Pancoast was successful in winning
the box by guessing tne number 73.
The .total amount received from

at the booth was $l5O.
The Philomatheans wish to ex

co-operation and support which was
shown to them by all who were

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., JANUARY 14, 1920
THE DES MOINES
The eighth International Conven
tion of the Student Volunteer Move
ment for Foreign Missions, held in
Des Moines, lowa, beginning Decem
ber 31, 1919, and adjourned Janu
ary 4, 1920, was in the number of
representatives the largest assembly
of its kind ever held. The Coliseum,
where the convention was held, with
a seating capacity of twelve thou
sand, was packed during every reg
ular session. Marly six caousanJ
jf this numbei wfre American stu
dent delegates, two thousand for
eign delegates from nearly forty dif
ferent countries, one thousand mis
sionaries, one thousand faculty rep
resentatives, and two thousand rep
resentatives of demnominatioal mis
sion boards and church leaders of
Des Moines. Thirty special trains
and a great number of special cars
wer required to carry this great ar
my of Christian workers into their
temporary camp and headquarters.
This great gathering, in words ol
one who addressed it, possessed
"more potential power than any as
sembly since the time of Christ."
Dr. John R. Mott, presiding offi
cer of the convention, known the
world over as a Christian worker,
delivered the opening address. The
long list of speakers who addressed
the convention included Robert E.
Speer, Sherwood Eddy, Samuel M.
Zwemer and prominent men and
women from every continent of the
globe. These eminent men and wo
men gave to the thousands of eager
students such a clear vision of world
conditions and needs that the blind
est of them were forced to get a
glimpse of world needs, and in the
soul of each student was Ranted a
deep set resolution to get farther
away from the selfish life and be
come at least a small force in the
great crusade of this generation to
carry the teachings of Christ to the
One of the interesting places con
nected with the convention was the
Hall of Exhibits in the Auditorium,
only a few blocks from the Coliseum.
Here the facts presented from the
platform were pictured graphically.
The exhibits consisted of 450 panels
full of live, down-to-date informa
tion, centering around the following
main features: (1) World Condi
tions, (2) Forms of Missionary
Work, (3) Student Mission Activi
ties, (4) Graphic Methods, (5) Ma
terial for Prospective Missionaries, i
(6) Inter-Church World Movement.
Stewards were stationed in various
sections of the hall ready to answer

LEAGUE OF NATIONS
In compliance with the request
that college students take a vote on
the League of Nations, Guilford stu
dents met on last Friday evening to
hear the matter discussed.
Dr. Binford first sated the four
propositions for voting as they now
1. I favor the ratification of ithe
League and Treaty without reserva
tions or amendments.
2. I am opposed to the ratifica
tion of the League and Treaty in any
3. I favor ratification of the
Treaty, but only with the Lodge res
4. I favor a compromise between
the Lodge and the Democratic reser
vations in order to facilitate the rat
ification of the Treaty.
He then brought out the fact that
an understanding of some kind is
necessary for any people who are to
live together in harmony. There
must be certain rules under which
they are to act. Noi can these be
had without some sacrifice of inde
pendence, but the benefits of organ
ization are superior ito independence.
That the League offers a great op
portunity to America, for helping
other nations, was the chief point
emphasized by Dr. Hobbs, the next
speaker. The League would help to
prevent future wars ror the reason
that no nation would attack another
if it thought all other nations would
Prof. Balderston then gave a short
discussion of ithe two classes of op
ponents. The first class are those
who are extremely afraid lest they
shall have to do something they do
not wish to do, or that something
will be done without the consent of
the U. S. Senate. They claim that
the government has a right to do as
it pleases in any issue. The second
class is composed of idealists, who
have hoped for a new; and better
world as a result of the war. They
object to the League because they
say a League should not be prepared
by a few diplomats, but by a conven
tion called for the purpose.
Miss Gifford brought out the fact
that some people are opposed to the
League for practical reasons. They
do not think that with a number of
discontented Germans under Polish
rule, and with China displeased with
the Shantung situation there can be
A brief explanation of the ma
chinery of the League was presented
by Prof. Mills. A Council consisting
of not more than nine, a General
Assembly of not more than ninety,

QUAKER QUINT TO MEET
U. N. C. IN GREESBORO
THURSDAY_NIGHT AT 8
PROSPECTS GOOD FOR A WIN
NINE TEAM THIS SEASON.
Freshmen Lose to Sophs 15-7.
The pre-season game with Draper
Y. M. C. A. before Christmas gave
Coach Doak an opportunity to try
out several of the aspirants for the
varsity quint and see how they would
work in an actual game. Since va
cation ended daily practice has
rounded the iteam into shape so as
to give some idea of what the pros
pects of a victorious team for this
season will be. Practically all of
last year's team are back and are
showing up well. Zachary, who was
out of school last year working with
the Friends Reconstruction Unit in
France, is back at his old position at
center and is playing the game in his
usual capable style. Frazier, who
was suggested as all-State forward
last year, has come in since the holi
days and has been doing some clever
shooting. Smith, who is a new man
coming to us from Asheville School,
has shown up ito be one of the fastest
roving guards seen on the Guilford
floor since Tom Soman's days. He
passes well and is also good at work
ing the ball down the floor and into
the basket. Tom Cox is playing his
usual close game at guard and bids
fair to keep up his last season's
record. Stafford, of last year's
team, has been playing part of the
time as center and sometimes as for
ward. Anderson, Mcßaßne, Newlin,
