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: Guilford. Position. Carolina. Raiford L.F Shepherd Frazier R.F....

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. NUMBER 14 1920 QUAKER READY FOR THE PRESS Send in Your Orders for them Now.

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.
