VOLUME VI.
GUILFORD WINS ONE
AND LOSES TWO
Trinity Wins on Foul Shooting
Carolina Too Fast for the Qua
ker Team—Greensboro Y. M. C.
A 30, Guilford 33.
The Quakers on account of their
numerous fouls lost the game with
Trinity College last Monday night
by the close score of 22 to 20. Guil
ford outplayed the Methodists in
field shooting, they having 14 points
from field goals against the latter's
8. The Quakers were playing too
hard though for the referee's liking,
and as a result about thirty fouls
were called on 'them, of which Mar
tin, the visitors' left guard, safely
negotiated 14.
Zachary was the individual star
of the game. He made 14 points
from the field and pocketed three
fouls. Anderson and Raiford also
played an exceptionally good tame
for the home team. The former was,
however, put out of the game on ac
count of fouls before the finish.
For the visitors Martin and Star
ling did some fine work. The pass
ing of the whole team was exception
ally good.
Line-up:
Guilford—Zachary, center and
captain: Smith, right forward; Rai
ford, left forward; Cox, right guard;
Anderson, left guard.
Trinity—Richardson, center; Fer
rall, left forward;, Sterling right
forward; Martin, left guard; Hath
away, right guard and captain.
Substitutes: Guilford, Stafford for
Anderson. Trinity, Barrett for
Richardson.
Score: Trinity 22, Guilford 20.
Referee: Stuart of Guilford.
Guilford looses to Carolina.
In a fast cleanly contested game
on the Greensboro Y. M. C. A. floor
the Tar Heels piled up a 50 to 23
score against the Quakers last
Thursday night. Guilford put up a
plucky fight, but was not able to
keep up with the Carolinians,who, it
is claimed, have one of the strongest
teams they have had in years. The
aerial worts as well as the long shots
for goals of the University boys were
exceptionally good.
Carmichael was probably the star
player for the Tar Heels. Zachary
played his usual good brand of ball
for Guilford. He and Frazier had
the greater part of Guilford's score
chalked up in their favor. Smith and
Cox did some fast work as guards.
A large crowd of both Guilford and
Carolina Alumni and students were
present for the event:
Line-up:

Raiford L.F Shepherd
Frazier R.F.... Carmichael
Zachary C Lipfort
Smith R.G Douglas

MYRTLE COX TALKS ON PRAYER
IN SUNDAY MORNING CHAPEL
Guilford student body was favor
ed last Sunday morning with an in
spiring and helpful talk by Myrtle
Cox on the subject of prayer. The
leader read as a scripture lesson
from Luke 11, where Jesus' disciples
asked Him to teach them to pray,
and in response the Master gave
them the great model prayer.
The leader brought out the fact
very forcefully that we in this day
need to ask our Saviour to teach us
to pray. Men, whether heathen or
Christian, pray to their gods. If
heathen they pray to wooden or
stone gods, and if Christians to the
Great Spirit God. The question is,
do we pray aright? Are our spirits
in harmony with the praise and pe
titions that we offer? Do we make
prayer a mockery because we are
not sincere in our asking? These
are questions to be considered if
prayer is made effectual.
Some of the essentials of prayer,
Miss Cox told ua, "are solemnity,
sincerety, faith, forgiving spirit, per
severance, constance, and prayer in
the Saviour's name. First and al
ways in praying we should praise
God. After this, according to the
teachings which Jesus gave, we may
ask for things necessary for our
spiritual and physical needs. Jesus'
life was a prayer life and He called
on His desciples for sympathy and
help in times of crisis. Now again
is a great cft-isis and men need to rea
lize afresh the value and concola
tion in real earnest prayer.
ZATASIANS RESUME
WORK WITH ENTHUSIASM.
The two meetings of the Zatasians
since Christmas have shown an un
usual amount of enthusiasm.
Especially was the meeting on
Friday evening, Jan. 15, full of in
terest and pep. The program was as
follows:
I. Present Day Problems —Miss
Richardson. ,
11. Things to Be Found in the Li
brary—Miss Edith Harrison.
111. Reading—Miss Neece.
IV. Vocal Solo—Miss Mock.
After a splendid critic's report by
Miss Williams, society adjourned.
Y. W. C. A. ABROAD
AND AT HOME
Miss Elizabeth Gaines Talks to the
Y. W. C. A. Girls.
Last Saturday afternoon Miss
Elizabeth Gaines, student secretary
of the South Atlantic Field, spoke to
the members of the Y. W. C. A. of
the problems of girls in different
parts of the world.
The Y. W. C. A. is a large organi
zation, doing work in many coun
tries. Its doors are open to meet
the needs of women and girls. In
China it is at work, and the need for
more workers is great. China is a
thickly populated' country whose
people are in strife and ignorance.
Ninety-seven per cent of the neople
are illiterate. It is dimcult for them
to get national solidarity because
they have so many dialects. China
needs a new religion to take the
place of the crumbling ones. Do we
dare to pass by the open door of
China? There are thirteen hundred
and nine Y. W. C. A. Associations
now in China, but they have only
dark, unattractive, rented rooms for
the secretaries.
Japan is another country that
needs our helpful consideration. It
has a bad factory system. The av
erage wage per day is fifteen cents ;
and the time for working is ten hours
per day. There is much disease;
womanhood is abused. Japan is
turning to us for our ideals. At
present there are only thirty-three
Y. W. C. A. Associations in Japan.
In India the doos are open to us
for physical, moral and spiritual as
sistance. One hundred million peo
ple of India lie down hungry every
night. India's women, however,
have more rights than those of Chi
na. Some Indian women are doc
tors, some politicians, and others
poetesses.
South America is making progress
in intellectual and material things,
but not in spiritual things. They, as
well as the European, are looking to
the United States for spiritual in
spiration.
Even in our own country there Is
need for help. The doors are open
for student workers. Not even all
the colleges have Y. W. C. A. Asso
ciations. Many, however, are now
asking for them. The Y. W. C. A.
has a work to do among the indus
trial girls, the colored girls and the
foreigners. They must be taught to
think right. "No nation rises above
its womanhood."
What can we as students do? We
can give ourselves—we can give our
minds and thoughts—we can give
our prayers. More is gained by
prayer than the world knows of.
Each in our own little corner can
live a true consecrated Christian
life, doing as much as we can for
the Master.

HONOR SYSTEM DEBATED
BY WEBSTERIANS.
The minds of everyone being filled
with the thoughts of the approach
ing Final Exams, the literary exer
cises of the Websterian Society were
Friday night changed to an extempo
raneous debate on the advisability
of having the honor system on ex
aminations at Guilford. Shields
Cameron and Herman Raiford ad
vanced the affirmative of this ques
tion against Arthur Lineberry and
John Dorsett, who attacked the sys
tem from the negative standpoint.
The latter won the decision of the
judges, who were Beeson, Rolison
and Harris. The argument of the
affirmative was to the point that the
honor system was best for character
building, as it left the matter of fair
ness to one's personal conscience
,and not to the mere fear of being
apprehended. Inability to do one's
best on examinations because of ner
vousness from having so many in
structors moving around was also
brought out as a strong argument
for the system.
The negative's strong argument
against the system being adopted
at Guilford was on account of the
mixing of college and preparatory
students here. They contended also
that character was built better by
force than by personal effort. That
is, in this case, that fear of being
caught was a greater incentive to
honesty on examinations than obe
dience to one's conscience.
