ON FEMINISM IN U.S.
Contends Women Are Largely
Responsible for Modern
HAVE LARGE INFLUENCE
Professor Suiter, of the Department
of Economics, spoke on "Problems Aris
ing With the Growth of the Feminist
Movement in America" in the monthly
joint Y meeting last Thursday evening
at 7 o'clock.
Taking rather a gloomy view of the
subject, Mr. Suiter said that women
were in large part responsible for the
modern jazz age. He pointed out the
effect of the movement on such widely
■ separated things as automobile design
and the flood of sensational literature,
both of magazines, newspapers, and
books, that is filling the country. He
further stated that the feminist move
ment is turning art into useful chan
nels rather than the fine arts.
Mr. Suiter showed that the movement
had taken a great part of its power
from the introduction of machine labor
which has cut away the traditional
view of labor as a distinctly masculine
He illustrated the effects of the
movement in changing institutions such
as the home, in increasing divorce, and
in changing the relation of the sexes,
These and other problems result from
the entrance of women into the busi
ness and industrial world.
A CAPELLA CHOIR SINGS
IN A CHAPEL PROGRAM
(iroup of Numbers They Intend to
Drop, Including "God Is a Spirit,"
and "Steal Away."
The A Capella Choir gave five num
bers in chapel Friday morning, Jan
nary 27th. The choir was handicapped
by the absence of several members in
the tenor and bass sections, but never
theless, gave an excellent performance.
"Beautiful Savior," one of the encore
numbers, was the only one sung Friday
that the choir is not dropping from its
program this year. This is the num- |

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C„ FEBRUARY 1, 1933
REVIEWED BY DEAN
Did Not Close During Civil
War, As Other Colleges
Were Forced to Do.
ONLY 20'/, LAST 100 YEARS
Guilford Is One of 100 Oldest Colleges
in America, Second Oldest Co-ed
College in South.
With the challenge "to throw in our
best," Dean Clyde A. Milner concluded
his talk on the Centennial program in
chapel January sth.
He pointed out several interesting
facts concerning the history of Guil
ford College. In the 96 years of its
existance Guilford has not closed its
doors once, as several larger colleges
in the South were forced to do during
the Civil War. Guilford is one of the
hundred oldest colleges in the United
States. It is the second oldest co-edu
cational college in the South, having
begun as a co-educational boarding
school with 25 boys and the same num
ber of girls.
Only 20 per cent of American col
leges have existed as long as 100 years,
and Mr. Milner asked why Guilford was
one of the two out of ten that have
endured. For the student body to think
over he also askorl the question, Has
Guilford a program so unified and so
carefully thought through as to con
tinue to challenge the support of its
"It- is for you and me to decide," he
said, "and it is our responsibility to
help bring Guilford closer to the ideals
for which it stands."
MIDNIGHT RIDE STOPPED
BY RANDLEMAN MAYOR
"Listen, my children, and you shall
hear of the midnight ride of Paul Re
vere. He jumped in his flivver"—no,
this was not a flivver, nor was it Paul
Revere oil his famous ride. Then what
was this ride? Who was this phantom
creature that crept from dale to dale,
| over first one sandy mound, and then
! laboriously over another?
The first report of this strange phe
nomenon was received from Asheboro,
an outpost of the sandhill section of
As soon as this news reached Randle
man, eight miles away, the townspeo
ple began literally swarming in the
streets, to get a glimpse of this strug
gling, over-grown horseless carriage.
At last, after two hours of patient
watchfulness, one citizen was heard to
exclaim, "Clear the way! Thar she
comes." The streets were immediately
cleared and 15 minutes later, 'midst the
illuminated rays of the ceiling lights of
I his .irk, Noah disembarked, at the re
quest. of the mayor of the fair city.
Then questions were fired at him, but
Noah stood his ground and in answer
to them said merely, "Check."
At length all was quiet, yet a sort of
tense nervousness could still be felt
over the scene. But peace and quiet
have a. soothing effect on the mind, and
Mr. Noah at last conquered his stage
fright and eloquently addressed the
mayor. "Say, what's the idea of stop
ping us? We're the famous Guilford
College Choir, tranquilly traversing the
highways, homeward bound, after a suc
cessful concert in Southern Pines.
Please, may we pass, Mr. Mayor? We're
in a terribly big hurry!"
SCHOOL OF MISSIONS

riod, 7:45 to 8:30, with Harry A. Wel
Seven study courses will be conduct
ed by able leaders, and during the clos
ing period many of the outstanding
leaders of this section will speak.
A great deal of enthusiasm has been
shown in the registration of the. stu
dents and people of the community and
it is hoped that this will continue
throughout the entire six weeks.

Ninety-ninth Anniversary of
Granting of Charter Is
OUR DUTY TO CO-OPERATE
Both Speakers Emphasize the Important
Part Students Play in Growth
As a celebration of the S)9tli anniver
sary of the granting of the charter for
Guilford College, a chapel service was
held on Friday morning, January 13.
The first speaker was Professor New
lin, who outlined the history of the
college briefly. His speech follows in
"One hundred years ago today, less
one year, the 'Founding Fathers' of this
institution made an achievement which
stands as one of the landmarks in tho
history l of North Carolina. It was done
at a time when the Southland was just
waking up to the necessity of freeing
the youth of the land from the clutches
of ignorance. Davidson College, Duke
University, Emory and Henry, Mercer,
The University of Richmond, and Wake
Forest College all trace their origin
back to this third decade of the 19th
"Just 200 y cp* ftf;o, the - • >nd im
portant trek of Quaker immigrants to
the South was pushing its way across
the Potomac and over and among the
hills of Virginia toward the woods of
Central North Carolina. It took these
Quakers nearly 100 years to work out,
in co-operation with the Quakers of
Eastern Carolina, a plan for meeting
the educational needs of their young
"With the passing of another half
century the New Garden School was re
chartered, reorganized, and launched
out toward the present, as Guilford Col
lege. Since that event another half
century has rolled around and we find
ourselves pausing, at this moment, to
glance at the past, as we set ourselves
toward the future with a new zeal and
a new determination.
"The birthday of an individual or
the anniversary of the founding of an
institution may call forth various re
actions and celebrations in commemo
ration of the event. It may be the oc
casion for a wild orgy of feasting and
other dissipational pleasures, or it may
