of the Season
Quakers Unable to Hold Baptists
After First Few Minutes
Saturday Oct. 31, the Quaker
eleven suffered her second defeat of
the season at the hands of Wake
Forest on the latter's gridiron. Up
Until the second half the Quakers
held their opponents to three touch
downs they, themselves scoring one
in the first two minutes of the
game by three successful forward
passes. In the first quarter Guilford
kicked to Wake Forest who fumbled
on the forty yard line, the ball being
secured by Guilford. Guilford then
opened up an aerial attack which
advanced the ball over the goal line
for their first and only touichdown
of the game.
Wake Forest scored her three
touchdowns in the first half by a se
ries of line plays and long end runs.
The Guilford team was greatly hand
icapped by the loss of C. Newlin
in the first quarter and A. I. Newlin
in the third. Although outweighed,
the Quaker team put up a scrappy
fight but could not withstand, the
line plunges of their heavier oppo
nents, "Jim" Newlin and Raiford
in the back field and C. Newlin and
E. Mcßane in the line played stellar
ball for Guilford. For Wake For

back field with Heckman, Wall and
Moss in the line were the outstanding

YOUNG MEN'S PRAYER MEETING
CONDUCTED, WITH H. G.
McBANE AS LEADER
Grady Mcßane made a splendid
talk last Thursday evening on the
subject of "Talents."
"Talents," the speaker said, are
those natural impulses which prompt
us to follow certain vocations.
We sometimes hear the remark
that certain people have no talents.
But each one of us has a talent for

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., NOVEMBER, 3, 1920.
New Girls Win Over Old Girls iw
First Game of the Series.
The girls, both new and old, are
showing more interest in baseball
this year than has ever been shown
here before. All fall there has been
three base ball practices a week,
and the girls have been getting
themselves into good shape for the
series of games that is just begin
ning. There is to be a series of five
games between new and old girls.
The first game of this series took
place last Thursday afternoon on the
girl's basebajl diamond back of New
Garden Hall. Both teams were on
the ground at tl% scheduled time,
and were full of the "Pep'' and
spirit it takes to win the game. The
"old girls" put up a brave fight,
but were not able to stop the scoring
of the "new girls." The "old girls"
were in the lead until they suffered
from the misfortune of losing their
pitcher, who was injured, and
could not play in the remainder
of the game. After this the "new
girls" began to score, and the game
ended with the score 20 and 19 in
favor of the new girls.
The "new girls" are to be pom
mended for their excellent team, and
the spirit they are putting in the
game. It is not only the girls that
are on the team, but every "new
girl" is l backing her team. The "old
girls" are also supporting their
team, and when their pitcher is able
to take her place again they will
make a harder fight than they did
in the first game. There promises
to be one of the closest contests in
this baseball series that there has
ever been here before. Both teams
are full of "pep," and both determin
ed to win in this series.
DOCTOR HOBBS RETURNING
The latest news from Dr. Hobbs
to reach Guilford is that he would
have England for America about
the first of November. Reports from
England have been that he has been
vapidly recovering. These reports
have been heard with great pleasure
by all the college students as well
as the people of the surrounding

Joint Literary Program.
Under the direction of a Faculty
committee, headed by professor Pan
coast, work is now beginning on the
preparation of a three day pro
gram for Thanksgiving week. This
program may be extended, and on
Sunday, special Thanksgiving services
held in the New Garden Friends
Church. Nothing definite has been
done, but probably on the afternoon
of Thanksgiving day community
singing will be the main feature.
On Friday evening a program will
be given by the four literary socie
ties. Committees have been appoint
ed from each of the societies to ar
range Friday evening's program. The
arrangement of this program is un
der the supervision of Miss Polk, the
head of the English Department.
Possibly the biggest event of this
week end program will be the page
ant, to be given on Saturday evening.
This will probably be in commemora
tion of the landing of the Pilgrims,
three hundred years ago. Miss Rob
erts, head of the French Department
has charge of the production of this
program. To assist Miss Roberts a
student committee has been appointed
from each of the two Christian As
The only break into the regular
work of the students will be in the
meetings of the literary societies. The
joint program, however, will be of a
higher class than the ordinary society
program. It will not be a competi
tive program, but one participated
in by members of all societies.
HALLOWE'EN SOCIAL IN
"Gold Dust Twins" Win Prize.
The annual Hallowe'en Social was
enjoyed by all students Saturday
evening. The gymnasium, where the
social was held, was decorated for the
occasion. The walls were lined with
trees and the floor covered with
leaves. Shocks of corn, pumpkins
and weird lights added to the scenery.
Every body came in fancy dress
so all classes of people were pi*es
ent. Side shows consisting of: The
Swimming Match, Freak of Guilford
College, Baby, and the Bridal Scene,
offered entertainment during the
evening; also an ice cream booth was
successfully managed and carried a
cool message to all.
Of special interest was the last
event, which was a parade around
the gym so that the judges could
make the decision as to who was
wearing the best costume. The prize,
a "Jack-o-lantern'' filed with candy
was awarded to the "Gold Dust
Twins;" represented by Misses Mabel
Ward, and Hazel Richardson.
At ten o'clock the guests depart
ed and the gym was left to the
ghosts and goblins.
The folowing fancy dress costumes
were good: The Gold Dust Twins,
Mrs. Wiggs. of the Cabbage Patch
and her family, Clowns, Ghosts,
Frenchmen and French ladies, Gyp
sies, Turkish women and Fairies from
The third and last joint meeting
of the two political clubs was held
in Memorial Hall, Saturday evening,
October 29th at 8:45 p. m. This
meeting, although it lacked the visual
partisan spirit and enthusiasm was
none the less important, for it was
a discussion of local politics and
Profesor Mills presided over the
meeting which began by a discussion
of the County officers by Edward
Hollady. Mr. Hollady outlined the
County government, taking each
officer separately, and giving his
duties and salary.
Professor L. Lea White then gave
an instructive discussion of the elec
tion laws of North Carolina. He went
well into detail, stating the qualifi
cations of the voter. The different
steps necessary to become a qualified
voter such as; payment of poll tax,
educational requirements,, resident
requirements and registration. Pro
fessor White also gave a clear ex
planation of the election machinery,
telling just how the election is con
Professor Mills, then, with the aid
of a chart showed the relation of the
voter to the different governmental
departments and to the federal offi
cers, also the relation of the depart
ments and officers to each other.
After these discussions the meeting
was turned into an open forum. A
number of questions were asked in
regard to different sections of the
election laws. After a short discus
sion of the Australian ballot system,
the meeting adjourned.
Without question these discussions,
which have been entered into with a
certain degree of partisanship; yet
which have been characterized by
fair play, have been a success. If they
have done nothing else, they have
helped to prove the fact that nothing
but a thorough investigation of the
issues and capabilities of the candi
dates will fit one to cast an intelli
gent ballot. This is particularly felt
by those who have, in a large meas
ure, in the past been ignorant in
regard to politics, but who are for
the first time assuming the obliga
tions of citizenship.
