Henry Clay Oratorical
Winning Oration Delivered By
The Fifty-fifth Annual Oratorical
Contest of the Henry Clay Literary
Society was held in Memorial Hall,
Saturday evening, March sth. Ed
ward L. Hollady was the presiding
officer of the occasion.
The speakers, although but three in
number, gave a creditable exhibition
of oratorical ability both in composi
tion and in manner of delivery.
In the first oration entitled, "The
True Solution," L. Lyndon Williams
gave a stirring appeal for the free
dom of the Irish people: he present
ed that, as the only true solution of
the Irish question, since England
could never hope to gain the friend
ship of Ireland, nor show to the world
a democratic spirit until she was
willing to grant liberty to others.
The second oration, "Manhood,
and the call for It," was delivered
by J. Spot. Taylor. The speaker
very forcefully presented the world's
greatest need, today. He set the per
sonalities of Abraham Lincoln and
Francis E. Willard as models for the
coming men and women who are to
cntribute their part toward a higher
In the last speech, "The God of
War or the Prince of Peace," Ever
ett Hollady gave a vivid picture of
the horrors and cruelties of war, and
its demoralization upon the po
litical, social, and religious life
of the world. He gave an earnst ap
peal to the reason and better under
standing of men everywhere as the
only way to an enduring peace.
Following the last oration, a vocal
selection was beautifully rendered by-
Miss Evelyn Henley.
The judges for the contest were
Messrs. R. J. M. Hobbs, J. Edgar
Williams and* Roger C. Riser. After
the decision, J. Edgar Williams gave
a few appropriate remarks and a
warded the medal to J. Spot Taylor.
DR. WILLIAM V. COFFIN
Dr. William V. Coffin, President of
the Board of Trustees of Whittier
College, Whittier, California, visited
Guilford College, Greensboro and
High Point the past week-end. Dr.
Coffin is an interested worker in the
Friends Forward Movement. He is
directing the efforts of the Friends
to raise the endowment funds of the
Friends colleges. The stories told by
Dr. Coffin of the financial difficulties
of other colleges proved of interest to
those especially interested in the
financial problems of Guilford. Dur
ing his visit, he greatly encouraged
the Friends of North Carolina in their
efforts to handle these problems.
The readers of the Guilfordian will
probably be interested in knowing
that the religious education of Guil
ford students is really worth men
tioning. On the Sunday after the
week of meetings held here, Mr. Hay
worth, who assisted in the meetings,
preached on the subject of, Religious
Education in the College, to his con
gregation in High Point. In his ser
mon he paid a tribute to the progress
of this work at Guilford.

BASEBALL PRACTICE BEGINS
Good Material for Team
The prospects for a winning base
ball team at Guilford this spring are
very bright. For the last few days
Hobbs field has been dotted with the
forms of about 30 candidates for the
'varsity' team, who have been work
ing up and ridding themselves of
the stiffness acquired in the winter
months of rest. There are but four
letter men back, but these with other
member of last years 'varsity' squad
will form a nucleus around which an
exceptionally good team should be
"Jim" Newlin, veteran third sacker,
who broke into college baseball cir
cles on the 1917 championship team
here, will inhabit the hot corner agai.i
this year. Jim is playing his fourth
and last year here and to college fans
needs no introduction.
J. G. Frazier, another "letter man",
will probably be shifted from first
base to outfield and can be relied
upon to do some effective stick work.
J. C. Newlin, playing his third year
here, is back at his old position in
left field. "Goat"' Cummings is
putting up a good show for the other
outfield position. "Goat" showed
himself to be a reliable fielder on last
At first base Andrews seems to be
the best bet so far, although it is too
early in the season to tell just who
will hold this place. At second J. W.
Frazier and Winn, both n&w men, are
working hard and seem to be able
to deliver the goods. Chalmers Stout,
last years utility man, is working in
short with creditable speed and form.
Herman Shore, who won his first "G"
on last year's team, is back and will
be the mainstay of the pitching staff.
E. M. Mcßane is showing more speed
than he did last year, and bids fair
to become a 'varsity twirler. '"Babe"
Shore, who was not in pitching con
dition till the latter part of the sea
son, on account of rheumatism, is
again heaving 'em over and is going
to shove Mcßane for second place
on the mound. At the receiving end
of the line, Havworth, C. Shore and
Fishel are all showing up well. Of
the three, Hayworth has probably
had the most experience.
Few women attend foreign univer
sities. In Italy one student out of
seven is a woman, in Germany the
ratio is one out of nine, and in France
it is one out of ten.
DATE OF MINSTREL CHANGED
From March 19th to April 2nd
On account of the late arrival of
the material the annual blackface
show, or better known as the min
strel, has been postponed. The date
which was March 19th has been
changed to April 2nd.
The work on the minstrel is, how
ever, progressing. The chorus is put
ting the pep into the overture and
solos. The second act stunts are being
worked out and the whole gang is
trying for the best show thai bus been
staged in a number of years.
RUTH OUTLAND ELECTED STU
Ruth Outland "22, was jrecently
elected president of the Young Wo
mens Student Government. The pres
ident elect will not take office until the
beginning of school next September.
The purpose of the early election is
to give the one who is to direct the
work of government next year, an
opportunity to attend the Student
Government Conference that will be
held in North Carolina before the end
of the spring term.
M iss Outland commands the re
spect and confidence of the Guilford
students, and will make a worthy
successor to the present chief execu
tive, Myrtle Cox.
ATHLETIC FEE RAISED
On Friday afternoon, March 4th,
in a mass meeting of the men of the
college, the question of raising the
athletic fee was thoroughly discussed.
President Binford set forth a number
of questions to be considered in the
discussion before a vote was taken.
Representatives from every class, and
in most cases, men who have not tak
en part in inter-collegiate athletics
spoke in favor of raising the fee from
five to ten dollars. When the vote
was made only five ballots carried
a negative vote.
The necessity of making the in
crease was thoroughly discussed
before the matter was put before a
mass meeting. The present fctrain
upon the Athletic Treasury makes
the increase almost absolutely nec
essary. The approval of the
College Trustees is necessary before
the increase can be made.
Guilford Closes Basket
Closest Game of the Season
In the closest and most interesting
game seen here in a long time, Guil
ford won the last game of the season
from Davidson. The score was 27 to
25, and at no time before the final
whistle could anyone have had an
idea which team would really come
out victor. At nine different times the
score was tied and, but once was
either team as much as four points
ahead of the other. This time was in
the last three minutes of the play
when the score stood 27 to 23 in favor
of the Quakers.
Davidson drew first blood with a
field goal by Roberts in the first few
minutes. Lindley quickly followed
with a pointer for the home quint
and then it was a neck and neck race.
At three different times in the first
halt the Quakers forged ahead but
when the whistle blew to rest the
scoreboard showed Davidson leading
by one point, score 14 to 15.
At the beginninng of the second
half Cox, who had been playing an
important part in the Quaker defense,
was put out on fouls, and Mackie
took his place. As in the first half
Davidson again started the scoring,
this time with a foul. Almost imme
diately "Jack Frazier slipped one
through the basket tying the score.
From this time until within three
minutes of the end neither team ever
got more than two points in the lead.
J. G. Frazier then caged one of the
prettiest shots of the game and gave
his team a four point margin, the
greatest either team had had.
For Guilford, Jack Frazier scored
the most points, having twelve to his
credit. J. G. Frazier who was playing
a guard position ior the first time
this season followed a close second
with 11 points.
Schenck led in the scoring for Dav
idson, securing 8 points before being
put out on personal fouls. Roberts
and Crawford followed with six
