AT MEMORIAL HALI
Pupils of Mr. White and Miss lludi

some of the music pupils of Mr.
White and Miss Rudisill.

April Song (Op. 20) Fontain
Each young lady on the program
performed her part creditably and
was in herself an evidence of the
careful and thorough instruction of
the music department of this place.
Miss White's softness of tone was
well suited to the selections she
gave, especially to the last one. The
next selections, given by Miss Wil
liams, were well rendered, the wierd
ness of the Indian melody being par
ticularly appealing to the audience.
The piano selections by Miss Rey
nolds told a careful preparation and
mastery of the pieces played. Miss
Henley by her singing as well as her
expression won the applause of the
audience. Miss Motley and Miss
Merrimon each deserve especial
mention; Miss Motley because of her
clear voice and her ability to put
herself into her singing; Miss Mer
riman because of the skill with
which she managed the piano. In
the last two selections, one by Miss
Harmon and one by Miss Tomlinson,
these ladies lived up to their usual
standard of excellency, both selec
tions being characterized by clear
ness of voice and fullness of tone.

ANNUAL CLAY ORITORICAL
The Henry Clay Literary Society
held its thirty-fourth annual Oritori
cal Contest Saturday evening, March
13tli. The fine orations were of such
excellent content, and so skilfully
rendered that the judges deliberated
for more than thirty minutes before
reaching a decision. Edward Hol
lady, receiving first honors, was
awarded the handsome Henry Clay
L. L. Williams delivered the first
oration of the evening, "The Dawn
of a New Day," dealing with the in

LEXINGTON OUINT WINS
Lexington Saturday night won the
high school basketball championship
of western North Carolina by defeat
ing Winston-Salem on the local court
by a score of 21 to 15. The game was
one of the fastest high school games
ever witnessed here and abounded in
spectacular plays. It was a fierce
battle from start to finish and the is
sues were not really finally settled
until the last five minutes of play.
With six field goals to his credit,
Everhart, of Lexington, was the
brightest star of the contest, while
Raper, of the same quint, also was
in stellar form. For Winston-Salem
the work of Caldwell and Davis was
conspicuously brilliant, the former:
securing seven and the latter four
Lexington started the scoring in
the first half and maintained the
lead tor 10 minutes. Winston-Salem
then executed some fancy work, tie
ing the score, which stood 10-10 at
the end of the first half. Both teams
came back strong in the second half
and Lexington succeeded in forging
ahead, later increasing the lead over
the Twin City fellows. The team
work of the Lexington boys was su
perb and was somewhat better than
that of their opponents, this fact
accounting largely for their victory.
With the ball in their territory the
Winston-Salem players were stronger
in goal shooting than Lexington, but
they appared unable to keep the ball
in their territory very long.
The lineup and points;
Winston-Salem—C. Davis, left for
ward, 7; Caldwell, right forward, 4;
Scheldt, center; Wilson, left guard;
M. Davis, right guard, 4.
Lexington—Raker, left forward;

LEAGUE OF NATIONS DEBATED
One of the hottest debates that the
Henry Clay Society has heard this
year, took place last Friday night,
March 12, on the question of imme
diate ratification of the covenant of
the League of Nations without
amendment. Marlette, Merriman
and Petree upheld the affirmative.
G. T-Todgin, Cummings and A. J. New

Clay library, for which the college
librarian says there is but little room
in the college library.
The proposed competitive plan for
the selection of the members of the
Guilfordian Board, was discussed
thoroughly, though no vote was
taken in regard to this matter, near
ly all of the discussion was in favor i
of the proposed plan.

OX THE DIAMOXD
The fine warm days last week
have given Coach Doak opportunity
to tryout different men in the sev
eral positions on the team, enabling
him to see how they really took in
action. The material on hand is
certainly promising and Coach ought
to put out a team this year that will
equal his 1918 State championship
team. Here are five or six old 'Var
sity men back this year. With these
as an experimental needeus the sci
ence and headwork of the game
should not be lacking.
The battery is always the first
concern of a team and while we have
no old heads for either end there
seems to be some fairly good candi
dates out for both positions. For the
receiving end Gilbreath and Frazier
so far have appeared to be the most
promising material. The three
Shores, E. Mcßane and Nichols have
been taking turns at tossing 'em
over. The fans have been praying
for a second "Legs" to appear in our
midst. Well, "Babe" has the first
requirement in the matter of length,
but it is too early in the season to
say just what he has in the form of
For the first station Frazier and
Stout have been showing up about
the best so far. Fox with M. L.
Thompson running a close second,
have been stopping the would-be
stealers as they slide into second.
Jim Newlin is back at his old position
on the hat coverer. Jim has been
stopping 'em in his old time style
and batting the same.
