GIRLS' INDOOR BASE BALL
Faculty Defeated by Varsity
19 to 16 in Spirited Game
On Tuesday night the young wo
men of Guilford College witnessed
Guilford's first game of indoor base
ball. The game was between a team
composed of ladies of the College
Faculty and the girls' varsity base
ball team.
The faculty, as Miss Crabb ex
plained had only gone out for prac
tice meaning to give a public demon
stration of their skill at the bat at a
later date. The girls, however, did not
understand it and every base ball fan
of the Y. M. C. A. (All the girls
on the hill) filed out to witness
the first practice game between the
faculty and girls, and added to it
her enthusiastical cheers.
At the request of Miss Edna Rai
ford, the Y. W. C. A. cherr leader,
the new girls occupying the east
balcony of the gymnasium gave their
support to the faculty; while the old
girls in the opposite balcony, gave
their yells for the girls' team. The
girls, both new and old entered into
the spirit of the occasion with much
enthusiasm. Seldom has the old
gymnasium been shaken with
more genuine enthusiasm. Notwith
standing the score of 19 to 6, in
favor of the varssity, the game was
intensely interesting from start to

GUILFORD COLLEGE. N. C., OCTOBER 13, 1920
Guilford Eleven Overpowers Lynchburg
GUILFORD SCORES. TWO TOUCHDOWNS IN FIRST HALF.
Contest an Interesting One Throughout
Guilford overpowered Lynchburg
to the tune of 12 to 0 on Hobbs field
Saturday afternoon, before an enthu
siatic body of Faculty, students,
and visitors. Hard fighting on the
part of both teams featured the bat
tle, but several spectacular plays
added excitement and interest to the
games.
In the first four minutes of the
game, Lynchburg carried the ball far
into Guilford territory. Guilford
however recovered the ball on downs
and gradually worked the pig skin up
the field. The first tally came as a
result of two runs by M. White and
G. Mcßane, through Lynchburg's line
for long gains.
Guilford began the second quarter
with a punch and snap that Lynch
burg was unable to withstand. On
the first play Curtiss Newlin ad
vanced the ball thirty-five yards by
a forward pass. M. White made first
down on an end run and Robinson
in another successful forward carried
the ball for the second touch down.
Guilford failed to kick goal in both
Lynchburg then stiffened her oppo
sition, at times assuming an offensive
that bid fair to be dangerous. Twice
she forced the ball almost to Guil
ford's goal line, in one case making
first down on Guilford's three yard
line. But in four successive attempts
she failed to gain, her entire force
breaking itself against Guilford's
stone wall line. The whole line de
serves special praise for its superb
defensive work in all critical mo>-
ments of the game. In the back field
M. White and G. Mcßane proved the
most powerful ground gainers at
rushing the ball.
PLATFORM EXPLAINED
Democrats and Republicans
Present National Issues
On Friday night after the Litera
ry's Societies' meetings the students
and Faculty of Guilford heard the
main issue of the two national plat
forms given by representatives of
the two parties. Professor Mark C.
Mills presided at this meeting. Mr.
Herman Raiford '2l, and Miss Noles,
head of the Home Economics Depart
ment represented the Democrats. Mr.
J. C. Newlin, '22 and Mr. Gladstone
Hodgin '22, represented the Repub
licans.
The main issues brought forth
discussion were; the League of Na
tions, and counter attacks on the
records of the two parties of minor
importance bear striking similarities
to similar planks in the platform
of the opposing party.
After the four speakers had used
up the ten minutes allotted to each
speaker, a general discussion took
place which lasted for twenty min
utes. Next Friday night a discussion
of the North Carolina Platforms and
state candidates will take place.

GUILFOIiI) TO BATTLE TRINITY
Team in Good Condition.
Guilford's third gridiron battle of
the season will be staged Saturday,
October 16th, when the Quaker eleven
meets the Trinity aggregation on the
latter's field. The Trinity squad has
not been in action against any col
lege team, thus far, and it is
difficult to tell what to expect from
them. It is not thought, however,
that an easy victory will be won.
Coach Doak is expecting a hard fight,
and is putting the men through a
thorough practice, giving special at
tention to the weaker points, but
with the showing made by the team
in the defeat handed Lynchburg, he
has little fear but that it will plow
its way to another victory.
Every member of the team emerg
ed from the Lynchburg game in
good condition, and with Cox back
at guard the line will be almost
impenetrable. The backfield is in
good shape and is demonstrating
both speed and driving ability.
A little more of last Saturday's
pep and Guilford will have an extra
pigskin next Saturday night.
"ARE YOU PLAYING THE GAME"
Is the Topic for Y. W.
"Leader?— Athletic cabinet.
When?—4:ls Thursday P. M.
Where?— Just wait and see.
How?— Every girl is asked to meet
on Founders Porch, clad in bloomers
and middie. Bring- your sweater and
the smile that wins the game."
The above is a poster found in the
girls' dormitories October 7.
Sure enough, the girls wei'e right
there as the poster directed, carrying
coffee pots, kettles, pans and buckets
from which came appetizing odors.
The small army of eager girls moved
forth to the meadow. Soon flames
from two huge bonfires began chas
ing each other skyward.
Seated around the fires, the girls
started the prayer meeting by sing
ing "Day is Dying in the West."
In her remarks Dovie Hayworth
the President of the cabinet likened
the game of Life to an athletic game.
She laid special emphasis on the
fact that every one can be an active
player in this Great Game and that
the success we have as a player de
pends on whether we play the in
dividual and selfish game or wheth
er we play for the team, having as
our motto, "Others."
Edna Raiford made a few brief
comments on "The Play Spirit." In
•this she stated that the greatest
factor in any game was the spirit.
Her remarks may be summoned in
•the words which she quoted from
Cooke:
"It's not the fact that you've licked
that counts
But how did you fight, and wh\
The closing talk was made by Miss
Crabb. She pointed out that not
every one can do the same thing well
and that as we choose the sport to
which we are best suited so we are
to choose the life in which we can
best serve. No player has done his
best unless he has worked under a
coach. Jesus Christ is the coach. Ai-e
you obeying the command, "Play
up, Play up, and play the game with
Him as your coach?"
In closing the girls united by
singing "Jesus Calls Us" and by
repeating the Lord's Prayer.
And then came the refreshments
and all that a meadow offers to
a crowd on a picnic. Sandwiches
came and went. Coffee disappeared
in a hurry and the biscuits vanished
before they had scarcely shown them
selves. "Weenies" hung from the
ends of "weenie" sticks and roasted
over beds of hot coals.
As all things have to end, picnics
do too and as the "picknickers
trooped toward the college the the
strains of "A Perfect Day" rose as
an expression of the evening pleas
ures.
