ball championship contest on the lo
cal floor on February 22. when chief
ly by clever passing, they won the
the Hrst game of the elimination
series by the score of 31 to 21.
Burlington put up a game fight
and was by no means greatly out
classed. Pool and Daniels led in
scoring and koeiig did some splen
did guarding for Greensboro. Jones
and Webster were the outstanding
players for Burlington.
Fast Leaksville Team downs Winston-
The Leaksville High School bas
ket ball team eliminated Winston-
Salem in the state high school cham
pionship series in a fast and a hard
fought game here February 25th
The final score was 36 to 24. The
features of the game were the pretty
team work of the Leaksville quint, the
shooting of Robertson and Vest for
Leaksville and the ability of Connel
ly for Winston-Salem to find the bas
ket. Robertson and Connelly each
scored five field coals.
Greensboro 38 to Lexington 28 on
Guilford College Floor
Greensboro put Lexington out of
the state championship series by win
ning from them here, February 25th,
by the score of 38 to 20. It was the
11th straight victory for the Greens
boro quint and was one of the fastest
and hardest fought the Greensboro
quint has experienced. Until the
final whistle hlew both teams were in
the fight, scrapping with every ounce
of their strength, but the superior
passing of the Gate City squad proved
the undoing of Lexington. Poole was
the star for Greensboro, scoring 14
points. Britton secured 10 and Dan
iels !. Leonard of Lexington scored
12 of his teams 2o points.
THE GERMAN PAPER ON OUR
The Guilfordian has just received
a copy of a newspaper published in
Germany, by the American Friends
Service Committee. The paper is
printed in the German language. It
gives a report of the work being done
by the American Friends in Germany.
The paper is all the more interesting
to Guilford students because Prof.
Harvard 11. Brinton, former head of
the mathematics department at Guil
ford, is one of its editors.
Mr. Brinton has had charge of
feeding; more than thirty thousand
German children for several months.
Brevity is the soul of wit but not
of love letters. Fliritation is atten
tion without intention.
Modern woman wants the floor but
she doesn't want to scrub it.
Exams are like the poor—we have
them always with us.
Great bluffs from little study grow.
Elon Five Overpowers
Game Hard Fought, and Close In
In a game that was hard fought
from the begining to the very end
Elon defeated the home team Satur
day, February 26th. The Quakers
started the scoring in the first few
minutes of play with a field goal by
Lindley. A couple of fouls gave Elon
a chance to score And throughout the
first half the two teams took turn
about at holding the lead. The half
ended with Elon leading 9 - 6.
The second half started with at
beautiful long shot by Perry who had
been sent in as a substitute for Mc
Adams. The home quint was greatly
weakened in this half by the loss of
Cox who was put out of the gome on
account of fouls. Newlin, who had
been injured in the beginning of the
game and had doggedly done his
best although almost unable to see,
was also taken out for the same rea
son. Throughout the game Elon for
wards found it hard to get near the
Guiltorcl goal for short shots and
had it not bee a for the ability of
E. Johnson to find the basket at long
range a different score would certain
ly have been recorded. He was the
outstanding star for the Christians,
securing 15 of his teams '29 points.
Frazier played best for the locals
and was responsible for 10 of Guil
ford's 14 points.

"BLUE BIRD" GIVEN ON THE
SCREEN AT GUILFORD
The presentation of "The Blue
Bird on Saturday evening at Me
morial Hall was very pleasing to the
Guilford audience. This plav was
(omposed by Maeterlinck and has
been quite famous in the United
States. The play is in reality a
fairy story come to life, ll makes
a wonderful appeal to the imagina
tion. The symbolism throughout the
play is splendidly set forth. "The
Blue Bird" represents happiness and
the prominent characters are two
small children, a boy and a girl,
who are searching for the "blue bird"
that they may get happiness. The
search is a long one, but full of
childish fancy. The souls of bread,
fire, water, and sugar are represented
in a very remarkable manner.
The different scenes representing
"The Land of Memory" "The Palace
of Night," "The Forest," "The King
dom of the Future" and "The" Awak
ening" were very picturesque and
especially appealing to the imagina
Religious Meetings for
The College Students
Many Students Have Personal Inter
view With Visiting Ministers
A series of meetings has been con
ducted on the Campus during the
past week. Boys and girls, both, took
an active part in them but the great
est amount of work was done by the
leaders: Mr. Clarence Pickett of
Richmond, Indiana, Mr. Samuel Hay
worth of High Point, and Mr. Kirby
Bowen of Greensboro. Mr. Pickett
holds a very important position as
Secretary of the Young Friends Board
of America. He has visited the Col
lege several times before. Mr. Hay
worth is pastor of the Friends church
in High Point. Probably some of
the old students remember hearing
him last commencement, when he
addressed the Christian Associations.
Mr. Bowen is pastor of the Friends
Church in Greensboro. He has visit
ed the College before this past fall
when he had charge of the Chapel
Meetings were held from 6:45 to
7:30 every evening of the past week
except Saturday. The students at
tended them very well and the halls
were filled each time. Besides the
evening meetings the visiting men
also led the chapel exercises during
The messages brought by these
leaders to the students has both di
rectly and indirectly influenced the
lives of many of them. The SERVICE
was felt and understood in each talk
given. Every person who heard even
one of them realized that after col
lege days are over, the real days of
entirely upon God through Jesus
The college was indeed fortunate
in having on its campus such men as
Messrs. Pickett, Hayworth and Bow
en. Their striking personalities and
strong characters were an inspira
tion to all Guilfordians.
Private conferences were held with
many of the students. Students were
given audience and help in regard
to their work after they graduate. Mrs.
Hayworth, who has recently returned
from Cuba, her former home, was at
the college from Thursday until Sat
urday. Her stories of Cuba were
very interesting to the many girls in
whose hearts she won a place.
These meetings were primarily for
the Christian Associations of the col
lege, and very few people attended
them besides the college students.
The meetings for the young women
were held in Founders Hall, and
those for the young men in the Y. M.
C. A. hall.
CLASS IN SUNDAY SCHOOL
TRAINING HEAR MRS.
Tuesday afternoon the twenty
second, Mrs". Van Noppen from
Greensboro visited Professor Dann's
class in Sunday School Training.
Mrs. Van Noppen is an excellent
Sunday School teacher. She works
especially in the primary department.
Although the Sunday School Train
ing department is a new one at the
college it is making good. The class
was very fortunate in having Mrs.
Van Noppen give a talk backed by
Sunday School work.
