TREATY CRITICS SCORED
BY PROFESSOR LUNT
Haverford Educator Pays Great
Tribute to Wilson.
Critics of the Treaty and League
who see in them only evidence of
English and French imperialism
were severely scored by Professor
William E. Lunt, of Haverford Col
lege in a lecture before the student
body last Saturday evening. Pro
fessor Lunt was one of the group of
experts who accompanied the Ameri
can delegation to the Peace Confer
ence and speaks with authority of
the difficulties and achievements of
the conference. He stated without
reservation that the delegates in
general and the "Big Four" in par
ticular were actuated only by the
highest motives and desire for a
peace of justice to all.
The difficulties which faced the
conference at its opening were tre
mendous. Pessimistic correspond
ents were cabling gloomy reports to
their home papers even before the
delegates arrived. With ithe arrival
of the delegates troubles increased.
In charmingly realistic manner the
speaker told of his experiences in
getting established in his Paris of
fice. Meanwhile to the chagrin of
the newspaper world the days passed
without the conference being formal
ly organized. However, they were
not days of idleness. The delegates
were getting acquainted and during
those preliminary .days the memo
randa demanded of the experts in
dicated that many of the most im
portant problems of the Treaty were
being argued out in informal confer
ences. The conference could have
proceeded 110 more rapidly if it had
been organized immediately 011 the
arrival of the delegates.
Professor Lunt gave a very graph
ic picture of the Council of Ten at
work and told of its relation to the
plenary session of the conference.
The advent of the Council of Four
to replace the Council of Ten he de
scribed* as necessary to prevent pre-'
mature publicity and also to insure}
The very real perplexities which
arose in applying the Fourteen
Points were very clearly presented. 1
Boundaries drawn with reference to :
racial determination were often al- 1
most impossible. For instance, in!
large sections Germans and Czechs
have an unfortunate habit of living 1
in the same towns. After lines be

side or the other may enter a pro
test against the data used in prepar- !
ing the decision. Economic ques

The lecturer paid a great tribute
to President Wilson and went on to (

on account of his authorship of the -

sides, the team representing the first

DOWNS DAVIDSON 30-22
Greensboro "Y" Beaten by Large Majority—Eastern
Invasion Results in String of Defeats—Good
Rooting Helped to Win Davidson Game.
In one of the most hotly contested
games of the season Guilford, Mon
day night of the 26th, defeated the
Presbyterian court squad by the
score of 30-22. The game was full
of spectacular plays from beginning
to end. Frazier, Guilford's speedy
and wiry right forward, was the
most luminous star of the game, the
score showing five field and six foul
I goals to his credit. The whole team,
backed as they were by the continu
ous cheering of their supporters,
played a good game from start to
finish. Anderson especially did
some fast and plucky guarding. New
lin showed good judgment and
For the losers Hall and Striebeck
shared honors in scoring. The for
mer, however, had slightly the ad
vantage in his long shots.
Davidson started the game with
things breaking in their favor, they
rolling up five field goals in as many
minutes. Anderson, however, broke
the hoodoo for Guilford by pocket
ing a field goal from the center of
the floor. The Quakers then got
into the game and at the end of first
half brought the score to 16-13 in
Guilford came back strong in the
second half and with Zack and New
lin feeding the ball to Frazier soon
established a lead that Davidson
was unable to overcome. Smith also
rolled in a couple of nice ones in this

Guilford Piles Up Large Majority
Against Greensboro Y. M. C. A.
Guilford somewhat overwhelmed
the Greensboro Y. M. C. A. the Fri
day night before Exams. The vis
itors were outclassed from the start
but put up a plucky defense to the
finish. John Gurney Frazier played
stellar ball for the Quakers. He alone
tossed in enough goals to beat the
visitors. Greensboro showed good
form in passing. Flnai score was

Trinity Wins by Big Margin.
Guilford lost the first game of the
Eastern trip to Trinity, January 29,
by a score of 36 to 16. The game
from start to finish was cioudedi with
fouls, most of which were officially
I unnoticed. At no time did the Qua
kers take the lead in scoring. The
miniature court on which the bout
was played prevented any develop
ment of spectacular piaymg. At the
end of the first half the score stood
9 to 15 in favor of Trinity.

X. C. State Overpowers Guilford,
44 to 25.
The Guilford basketball five was
defeated by the strong N. C. State
quint in Raleigh last Friday night.
Guilford started the scoring and
surprised the audience by holding
the lead for the first few minutes of
play. Both teams passed well
throughout the game. For Guilford
Zachary and Newlin played a good
game. Anderson also played in bis
usual consistent manner. The bulk
of the guarding fell upon him, and
had he received proper aid the game
would have been won by a much
smaller margin. For State College
Ripple and Groome played the best
ball. The clean and manly way in
which State's team played and their
splendid reception of the visiting
team was particularly impressive.
