kowsky Quartette, consisting of two
violinists, a cellist, and a pianist.

Boston is one of the best in the
country. Their ensemble playing, as
well as the solo work, was of the
highest type and showed that they
were skilled musicians and had mas
tered many of the most classical and

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN
Subject of Character Presented
By Student Leaders.
At the Thursday evening prayer
meeting of the Y. M. C. A., Curtis

In the first part of his speech,
Mr. Newlin asked the question:
"What is character?" Character is
the sum of those qualities which
distinguish one person from anoth
er. If we would have a good charac
ter we must cultivate good qualities.
We must train our conscience to
fell us what things are right, and
then we must have the will-power
to follow the bidding of our con
science. We should always have a
pleasant disposition, and a regard
for the rights and privileges of oth
ers. In this way we develop a per
sonality that will go far toward

M iss Polk's paper brought out the
fact that Walt Whitman is the first
really American author accepted by
foreign critics, also, he believed the

State Candidates and' Plat
forms Are Discussed
On Saturday night, October 23, at
8 o'clock p. m., the political clubs
held their second joint meeting to
discuss candidates and political is
sues.. At this meeting the North
Carolina issues and candidates were
presented by representatives from
each of the two political clubs. Pro
fessor M. C. Mills presided over the
meeting. Professor R. L. Newlin
gave a short explanation of the du
ties of our state officers, stating
The Democrat Club was represent
ed by Miss Thomas Esther Stuart,
and J. Spatt Tayloi\ The Republican
Club was represented in the discus
sion by A. I. Newlin and J. C.
After the presentation of the Plat
forms and personel of the two state
tickets, a general discusion took
place, which created a considerable
amount of interest among the stu
dents and members of the faculty.
Questions and answers were hurled
back and forth between the numbers
of the opposing parties. When the
general discussion had reached its
climax, "Old Ben", the half deaf
veteran of many a "possum hunt,"
who, it seems, was sitting outside—
beneath the shadows of one of the
campus oaks, became powerfully af
fected by the hot air works of the
auditorium, pointed his trembling
nose toward the high soaring mojn

Y. W. C. A. Picnicers
Visit Battle Ground
Girls Revel in Song, "Hot Dog,"
Autumn Glories and
To say that last Saturday was
an ideal day for a "Y. W. C. A.
picnic, is merely suggestive of how
much purple mists, veiling far away
hills from autumn sunshine, and red,
brown and yellow leaves can add
to such an outing. Never did a hap
pier crowd of girls fill five trucks.
Songs, yells and shouts filled the air,
around Founders Hall at 1:30 o'clock
and very soon the loaded trucks
reached the gateway at the battle
ground. The girls tumbled out and di
vided themselves into groups. Of
course the monuments were very in
teresting to the new girls, but those
who had been there before were at
tracted farther on to the clear lake
and on to the old court house site,
and to see the big oak.
After much walking and kodak
ing the girls came together near
the spring where a large camp-fire
had been kindled. The coffee was
ready and the hungry girls soon cir
cled around this fire.
North Carolina songs weie sung,
followed by Guilford songs. Then Miss
Louise recited the old story of the
history of the Battle Ground. Then
came, sandwiches galore. Hot dogs,
persimmon pudding, coffee and apples.
Just at twilight the jolly girls
started for Old G. C. to make their
appearance at a political meeting.
GIRL'S ATHLETICS PROGRESS
Base ball, Tennis and Gymnasium
A mass meeting of the girl's Ath
letic Association was held Monday
Afternoon, Oct. 18th. The new re
vised constitution, by-laws, Eligibility
rules, and regulations for winning
"letters" were read and unanimous
Miss Crabb gave some very en
couraging remarks as well as several
needed suggestions. During these
several weeks which have passed, the
girls have manifested a fine co-oper
ative spirit in supporting athletics.
The tennis courts are continually
occupied during recreational hours.
The base ball fields are dotted with
girls on Monday, Tuesday and Thurs
day afternoons. The "Crabb Athletic
Field," which is just back of New
Garden Hall is thus a center of
Athletics activities among the girls
every day in the week. The gymna
sium classes are rapidly increasing.
There were fifty girls on the floor
Tuesday morning of this week. Thei*e
are four classes each week befoi'e
breakfast and four during the day
class periods. All these classes are
While the interest is still inci'eas
ing there are some few girls who
are rather timid and slow in coming
out. They seem to hope that these
girls will soon realize the import
ance of making use of the opportu
nity of helping Girl's Athletics to
grow, and at the same time develop
themselves into stronger womanhood.
