Mary Hobbs Invaded By Army
Of First Rate Male Cooks
This week the men did more than |
invade the parlors of Mary Hobbs hall.
They penetrated as far as the kitclien
to the tune of dish-washing and wait
ing tables, and received instruction in
the ways of a Co-op Dorm. Edward
Boring was the originator of this idea,
and says: "This idea struck me during
exam week of last semester; since that
time I have been thinking about it.
I talked with Miss Gons, Miss Ohcuault,
and Mrs. Milner, receiving their ap
proval and consent." He also says
that converts were easily converted.
Whether better meals or social con
tacts were the cause of their conver
sion has not as yet been ascertained;
however, they seem blissful in their
new-found toil. As for the girls who
live in the dorm, they seem well
pleased with the masculine trend of
Words of Wisdom
By JAMES PARKER
Hanging from gayncss to clif?nifiecl
silence, the platforms of the important
office candidates in Guilford's spring
elections, set for March 21, are being
made puldie today.
There were thoughtful pauses, some
brow-knitting, and just a bit of in
tense concentration before all the
right words were written by all the
candidates. And without attempting
to choose—much less catch our breath—
we give you the official "press state
ments" on your favorites for the races.
Here they arc:

government that will work in close

ye-ir the program includes Latin. Rus

recognized are "From Heaven Above."
"Now Thank We All Our God," "Day

"llospodee I'otneeloogy," "Coin' Home,"
"O Holy Lord." and "Go Down Moses."

The set-up of required courses in
social science for Guilford students
has been revised, according to an
anouncement recently received from
A. I). Beittel, dean of the college.
A year-long "Introduction to the
Social Sciences'* will be required of
freshmen in place of two of the
semester courses at present sched
uled for upperclassmen.
The revision, which will take effect
next year, will also permit History
3-4 as an alternate for the Political
Science 23-24 required of all juniors
The framework of required social
science courses which will face the
incoming class of *42 next September
is as follows: for freshmen, Intro
duction to the Social Sciences (two
semesters); for sophomores, Psychol
ogy 1 and Religion 3; for juniors,
Political Science 23-24 or History
3-4; and for seniors. Philosophy 103-
101. Those courses now included in
the curriculum which appear in that
listing will probably be renumbered.
MRS. CLYDE A. MILNER
SPEAKS ON MYSTICISM
Will Discuss "Psychology of Mysticism"
at Symposium in the Library
LAST IN SERIES OF LECTURES
Mrs. Clyde A. Milner will speak at
the fourth of the series of symposiums
which are being held at the college li
brary each Sunday afternoon. Mrs.
Milner will discuss "The Psychology
of Mysticism" to end the group of
lectures begun by Dr. Milner, who
spoke on "Mysticism in the Society
of Friends." The other lectures in
the series were "Madame Guyon," by
Dr. Russell Pope; "Mysticism in the
Catholic Church," by Mr. R. D. Doug
las. and "Mysticism in English Poetry"
by Miss Dorothy Lloyd Gilbert.
There has been much interest shown
in this dissertation by the faculty,
which was the "brain child" of Dr.
Russell Pope. A new outreach in the
stimulation of interest of friends of
Guilford and its students in the valu
able collections of Quaker books which
are in the library and in the intel
lectual contact between friends of the
college with the Guilford faculty and
students was attempted.
