Guilford Defeats Lenoir in
Second Game of Season, 31-7
Captain Mcßane Stars for
With the Quakers playing consist
ently throughout the game. Lenoir
fell before the superior driving pow
er of Guilford and was overwhelm
ed by a score of 31 to 7 on her home
battle ground Saturday, October 7.
Lenior's only score came as a re
sult of Hawn's interception of a for
ward pass and his return of 65 yards.
The game was started with Guil
ford receiving. By a steady drive
Guilford was able to advance the
ball to within two and a half yards
of Lenoir's goal line. There Lenoir's
defense put up a determined resist
ance and three attempts were neces
sary before brazier was able to go
through the line for Guilford's first
The Quaker lads kept up their
drive toward victory by scoring a
touchdown in both the second and
third quarters and augmented this
score by pushing two touchdowns
over in the final quarter. Owing
to a poor forward pass, which was
intercepted, Lenoir was also able
to score a touchdown in the fourth
Lenior shows marked improve
ment over last year when the score
was more than double that of this
year. The Lenoirites put up a
strong fight throughout the game
and at times displayed a strong de
fense, holding the Quakers for
Hawn's interception of a forward
pass and his long run of 65 yards,
and the playing of Brown, Carpen
ter and Cox were the features of
Lenoir's play.
Knight, Thomas and Frazier in
backfield did good work for Guil
ford. In the line Warrick and
Nicholson showed up best. "Block
Smith at right end also lived up to
his nickname.
Probably the most astonishing
man in the game was Captain Mc-
Bane of Guilford. Not only did he
play a good defensive, but several
times he broke through Lenoir's line
to block punts and to cover fum
ble s. Twice he broke through the
line and blocked punts behind Le
noir's goal line for touchdowns. The
ball was snapped, Lenoir fumbled,
Mcßane broke through the line,
scooped the ball up and raced
across for his third touchdown.
The Guilford team showed the ef
fect of more training since last week
end of the experience gained in ac
tual battle. With two week's prac
tice before the game with Wake
forest on Oct. 27, this battle be
tween the Baptists and Quakers
should prove interesting.

Ihe New Garden monthly meet
ing met at the church Saturday ev
ening, Oct. 7, to occupy themselves
in "profit, pleasure and in eating
pie," as the posters put it.
The evening program began with
music, which was furnished by the
college orchestra. Charade groups
were then formed among the guests,
and different items in the churcn
budget were enacted and guessed by
the other groups.
The main object of this gathering,
however, was to discuss the finan
cial status of the church. Short
speeches were made by Dr. Binford,
Prof. L. L. Hobbs, Mrs. Annie E.
Williams, Miss Ruth Lindley, Al
pheus White and Charles Lambeth.
Later, pledges were made, Robt. H.
Dann and J. D. White checking them
as they were announced, on a huge
pie drawn on the blackboard.
After this phase had been duly
presented the meeting adjourned to
the basement of the church to be
served with pie and hot chocolate.
Several of the college students and
faculty availed themselves of this
opportunity to become acquainted
with the members of the church.
Dr. Hobbs Speaks at Chapel
"Contributions to intellectual life,'"
was the theme of a chapel talk given
by Dr. Hobbs last Monday morning
'"We should be as happy as we
can," said Dr. Hobbs, "and the only
way to lie happy intellectually is
by mastering the subjects set for our
He continued by showing that
failure in any subject can often be
traced to the lack of interest. He
stated also that probably all of us
feel that we could have made addi
tional effort toward something we
have done.
Guilford Tennis Men

On Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 4.
the Guilford College tennis players
meet the tennis team of the Greens
boro high school for a practice game
on the college courts. Due to the
dry weather, the courts were in poor
shape, and the game did not attract
much attention.

er. and Earl Barger of the Greens
boro high school in a hard fought
game, won by a score of 6-4; 1-6
and 6-1, from Benbow Merriman and
Fred Winn.
William Seatt and Thomas King
of Greensboro, won from James
Joyce and Marvin Shore, 6-4, 6-4.

The choral society of Guilford
College which was re-organized some
three weeks ago, has announced def
initely that the opera, "The Bohe
mian Girl," by W. G. Balfe, will be
presented in concert form sometime
in December.
The prospects for (he chorus this
year are considered unusually good
since there is aw especially large
corps of tenor voices and every one
is showing a great deal of interest
in this fall's presentation. Al
though not quite as difficult as the
score of "Faust," which was pre
sented last year, "The Bohemian
Girl" contains many famous chorus
es and airs, among which is that
gem for tenor, "Then You'll Re
member Me," occuring in the last
It has also been announced that
the leading artists of the state will
be engaged for the solo parts, and
supported by a large chorus there is
no doubt but that this will be the
outstanding musical event of the
The society is again under the able
directorship of Prof. J. W. White,
with Miss Beatrice Byrd, accompan

First Student Social at
New Garden Hall
On Saturday evening, October 7,
New Garden hall was the scene of
the first informal social of the college
Promptly at the ringing of the bell
an expectant group of hoys and
girls in the front hall
and dining room.
The restraint of new acquaint
ance felt by some, soon wore off
then the crowd was divided into two
groups and such old fashioned games
as "upset the fruit basket" and "go
ing to Jerusalem" were entered into
with much spirit.
The social committee deserves
much credit for the arrangement of
the hall and for the interesting
games planned.

Molecular Theory Seems
Most Rational
Prof R. L. Newlin of the physics
department addressed the student
body at chapel hour Friday morning,
presenting impartially three theories
of the source of the sun's heat. Con
sidering the mathematical facts of
the subject as wholly uninteresting
to the majority of his hearers, he ap
proached the subject from the
familiar fundamental of material
science, energy.
The first theory of the source of
! the sun's heat which M. Newlin pre
sented is known as the meteoric the
j ory. Meteors traveling through
space at the enormous rate of 384
miles per second, generate 45,000,
I 000 calories of heat per kilogram.
When it is remembered that about
8,000,000 meteors strike the earth
daily, one can easily conceive that
enough would strike the much larger
surface of the sun to maintain its
However, according to this hypoth
esis, the earth should receive 1-.236
as much heat from meteors as from
j the sun, while in reality the amount
of heat which the earth receives
| from meteors is neglible. Hence
! this theory does not find favor with
j modern astronomers.
"The contraction theory," said the
| speaker, "was outlined by Hem
holtz in 1854. According tt his
supposition the sun contracts con
slant ly and in su li manner that it
|is always homogeneous. The in
creasing density accounts for the gen
eration of heat."
1 here is a fallacy in this theory
also, said Mr. Newlin, "since it con
tradicts geological evidence of the
age of the earth."
The molecular theory of the source
of the sun s heat assumes that the
•.rases composing the sun are in con
stant motion, and that the friction
j ihus produced generates heat. This
I theory has been outlined by Prof,
j W. 1). MacMillan, of Chicago Uni
versity, and finds favor with many
Ihe subject is an interesting one
I and is receiving much attention in
! the scientific world.
