On Wednesday evening, March 3,
Prof. James Westley White, head of
the Voice Department of Guilford
College, gave a recital of songs.
Professor White was assisted by
Mr. Mortimer Browning, of the Mu
, sic Department of the Greensboro
College for Women, who acted as
The program which was divided
into four parts was artistically and
skillfully arranged. Part one was
a. Come raggio di sol—Caldara.
c. Cara Mio ben—Geordani.
d. Vittoria —Oarissimi.
These were all sung in Italian, and
were characterized by a round, full
tone and warmth of expression.
The second group was a beautiful
collection of Schubert's composi
a. Night and Dreams.
c. The Wanderer.
d. Hark! Hark! The Lark.
The artistic interpretation of this
group was especially good. "Whith
er" and "The Wanderer" were ap
preciated' very much, due in part to
the beautiful accompaniments
Part three was introduced by two
French love songs followed by three
numbers by Scandinavian composers:
d. Soft-footed Snow—S. Lie.
Professor White interpreted this
group with sweetnsss and power. The
fourth number, "Soft-footed Snow,"
due to its suggestive power and beau
ty, deserves special mention.
The fourth group was as follows:
a. Wind Song—Rogers.
b. Spring's a Lovable Lady—El
c. Didn't It Rain?— Negro spirit
ual arranged by Burleigh.
d. As in Old Gardens—Reicher.
e. The Big Brown Bear —Mona-
Two humorous selections, the
third and fifth in this group, were
presented with much skill and were
warmly greeted by the audience. As
in "Old Gardens," disclosed a sweet
ness of tone and an excellent rythm.
Spontaneity and freshness were
characteristic of the entire group,
'vhich was well fitted for closing a
varied and delightful program.
Professor White's explanations at
the beginning of each number added
to the enjoyment. The entertainment
was a rare treat for all Guilford's
music lovers. ' Professor White pos
sesses a basso voice remarkable for
its clear diction and power of inter
pretation. Mr. Browning accompa
nied Professor White with extraor
dinary ability and skill. Guilford
!ans are very grateful to them both
for a delightful evening's entertain
GUILFORD COLLEGE. N. C„ MARCH 10, 1920
OFF TRACK MEET
Last Saturday evening the Balder
ston power plant reluctantly set it
self to the itask of chasing the shad-
ows from the old gymnasium, in or
der to make room for one of the big
events of the year—the annual in
terclass track meet. Some of the
features that were staged in for
mer meets, under the supervision of
Director Brinton, were left out, to
the great sorrow of those who had
been training for such events. The
three-legged* and one-legged forms
of the race track, and the marvelous
skill of each contestant, were sights
strangely fascinating to ithe gaping
mouthed, saucer-eyed "Rats," who
skipped hither and thither in a vain
attempt to catch a glimpse of every
passing show; but to those dreamy
eyed viscous couples, who delight
only in the sight of their image as
it is reflected in the eyes of others,
there was nothing sufficiently inter
esting or important to draw them
from the shadows and less densely
populated corners of the balcony and
First, the fastest twirlers of the
Young Women's Aithletic Associa
tion lined up in front of a spacious
target to compete for pitching hon
ors. "Ed" Raiford, '22, could not be
surpassed. Twice the sphere smote
the bull's eye with iterriflc force.
The second event, watched from a
distance by nearly everyone, was
the shoe race. At the crack of the
"pistol" the chosen representatives
from the classes leaped into the
giant pyramid of cowhides and each
one by exercising rapidly his senses
of sight and smell fished out his own
pair of niudpunchers and jumped
into them. Curtis Newlin, '22, was
the first of the contestants ready for
Hugh White, in the third event,
lost the title which he has held for
the past two years to ithe cracker
scrunching championship. Herman
Raiford. '2l, emptied his mouth
with one desperate effort and gave
one clear cut whistle long before
Hugh had relieved the pressure on
his stuffed cheeks. liaiford's feat
was indeed marvelous. In the line
with him were veterans from the
glutton ranks. Hugh Moore, '2O, of
national fame, stood by his feide.

thar he may serve as director of the

ELECTED MAY QUEEN
Florence Martin Association Presi
dent for Next Year.
For some time the Y. W. C. A. has
been planning for a May Day Festi
val, but plans had not begun to ma
terialize very much until the regular
business meeting on last Thursday
evening, when Isabel Pancoast was
elected May Queen. Mr. White, mu
sical director, has been given full
charge of the festival, and expects to
begin work on the program soon.
He hopes to work out quite original
plans for the event.
This meeting was also the time
for the election of Association offi
cers for next year. The following
Vice President—Tom Stewart.
The crack of ball against bat and
the muffled thud of the twirling
spheroid as it finds its resting place
in the catcher's mitt, coupled with
the shouts that have been coming
from the direction of Hobbs' Field
during the last week, proclaim to the
world at large that spring baseball
practice has begun.. Coach Doak
has had a squad of twenty-five or
thirty men out every afternoon that
the weather permitted' since the close
of the basket ball season. There
has been no regular playing as yet,
but Coach has been putting the
aspirants thru some batting and
fielding practice. Along with this
he has been sending the squad out
on cross-country runs down by the
store and back of the cemetery.
Everyone who has ever played bas?-
b i'! a: Guilford and followed "Hick'
Hi.l.l'r or John Woosley on on? if
those runs knows how good they are
for getting one in shape for spring
baseball. In short, Coach has been
getting the boys limbered up in
preparation for the real training
that will soon start.
The prospects look good this year.
The two Newlins, Marlette, Johnson,
Fox, Frazier, Stout are varsity men
back on the job this year. There
are also two Shores who are going
out for the twirling staff. Gilbreath,
Farlow, Frazier and Kiser are candi
dates for the receiving end of the
battery. Among other candidates :
for various positions are H. B. Shore.
Glenn, Kinney, Merrimon, Mcßane,
Cummings and Stratford.
President Binford expects to de
vote all of his time now to the Inter-
Church World Movement. His work
is to be shared by members of the
faculty. Miss Era Lasley will take
charge of part of the Preparatory
Mathematics. She will also assit
in the office.
Helen Cartland, of Greensboro,

anna White and' Irma Harrison.
HIGH SCHOOL 26-10
School Girls Are Outclassed in a
Fast and Interesting Game.
In a fast and exciting game Friday
night the girls' team of basket ball
tossers defeated the Guilford High
School five by a 2 6-10 score. Excel
lent team work was exhibited on both
sides, but the collegians had some
what the advantage in overhead work
and this piled up the score in their
favor. The whole team played a
good brand of ball, but "Ed" and
"Tiny" Raiford, who each had 13
points scheduled to her credit, were
the most luminous stars on the col
lege team. "Kat" Harmon as center
also played a fast and aggressive
game. Close work on the part of
the Quarkers' guards kept the vis
itors' score down to the safety mar
gin. For the visitors, Stuart and
Henley were the cleverest at passing
In the first period the two teams
seemed to be pretty evenly matched
and it was only by hard fighting that
the Quakers won a three-point mar
gin before the timekeeper's whistle
blew for the first rest interval. The
score stood 10-7. Both teams came
back strong in the second and third
frames, but closer guarding on the
part of itlie collegians kept the ball
in their territory most of the time
so that he Raiford team of forwards
had simply to roll ithem in the bas
ket. which they did not fail to do.
There was plenty of spirit and vim
shown all thru the game. Both teams
having good support, Miss Osborne
saw to it that there were no mascu
line assistants, good or otherwise,
left on the ground floor.
