Lions Lose to Bears of Lenoir-Rhyne 25-0 Lenoir-Rhyne Launched Early Attack Which Gave Them Lead. The Mars Hill eleven was defeated at Hickory last Saturday by Lenoir- Rhyne by the score of 25-0. The game, however, was a much more in teresting one than the score indicated. Each team made seven first downs, yet the Bears took advantage of all the breaks. The first touchdown came from a series of line bucks and an end run. The right side of the line was greatly weakened by the absence of Chiles, the veteran guard. The Rhynes scored another touchdown af ter Anderson had fumbled. Here they carried the ball over the right side of the line for a touchdown. The third score came as the result of Green’s juggling a 40-yard pass and then stepping off for a touch down. Here the extra point was add ed by placement. The Lions threatened in the second quarter, taking the ball on their own 35-yard line and on two line plunges and three passes placed it on the 5- yard line. Here the attack halted. Two line plays were smeared; an end run came to naught, and the final ef fort, a pass was grounded in the end zone. The third quarter is where guard I Burnett starred by making thirteen of the sixteen tackles. The offensive punch goes to Plem- mons who hit the line for gains time and time again, running back punts and all types of broken field running. Even the spectators on the side lines could be heard to say “Watch 77 play that ball.” The punting of Camnitz was weak. Yet all the boys will be in their fight ing hard against Biltmore Junior Col lege. Let’s all get together and boost the team Saturday.

Euthalians Would Retain Old Calendar The Euthalians held their regular meeting for the week Friday night, November 8, 1929, with an interest ing program which was enjoyed by all. First on the program was an ora tion by Robert Tolbert, then a decla mation by W. E. Allison. The debate query was a subject that has received considerable comment and discussion recently. Since several new men were on for this discussion they showed what they could do in debat ing. The query for debate was_ “Re solved, That a Change to the Thirteen Month Calendar Should Be Approv ed.” George Tindall and W. O. Rosser upheld the affirmative with fine argu ment, while Glenn Williams and D. A. Simpson refuted their statements and showed wherein the old calendar is still better. Val Edwards gave some excellent jokes, and H. F. Nash rendered a good selection, after which the pres ident recognized the visitors.

There are a great number of stu dents eating in the dining hall who have expressed the wish that Hal lowe’en would come more than once a year. They can hardly be blamed for making such a rash wish because Mrs. Shaw always gives us a big time on Hallowe’en night. Any person who was at supper Thursday night and did not enjoy that brief half- hour does not appreciate a good time. As the students entered the dining hall with no thought of ghosts or witches, they were met at the door by a very spooky ghost who carried a (Continued on Page 4) The anniversary programs of the four literary societies are scheduled to be given in the near future. The programs this year are planned to be somewhat different from what they were last year, especially those of the boys! The two boys’ societies had a joint program last year; whereas this year they will have separate ones. The girls will have separate programs as usual. It has also been decided that the anniversary programs will be pre sented on the last four Saturday nights before the Christmas holidays. According to the schedule of the programs, the Euthalians will present their program first, November 23. The Nonpareils will have the thirti eth of November for their program. The following Saturday night, Dec ember 7, the Philomathians will ren der theirs. The last Saturday night before the Christmas holidays, Dec ember 14, will be given to the Clios for their program. Each program, as far as possible, will be representative of the type of programs given at the regular meetings in the halls. Clio Membership Reaches 100 Mark Nine Men on Campus.. in Army or Navy During World War Several Students From Mars Hill Were Enlisted. Thursday afternoon at 4 o’clock the following program was given in the Clio hall: vocal solo, LaRue Man- gum; What Is Music? by Louise Pat ton; cornet solo, Florence Johnson; musical reading, Jerry Mahaffey; pia no solo, Ruth Davis; and two French harp numbers by Cora Arch. One new member was initiated in to the society, making a total of one hundred members, the largest num ber of Clios in the history of the so ciety. During the World War there were many men from the Mars Hill campus and other colleges who saw service. The eleven year interval that has elapsed has scattered them far and wide, but we find that nine men on the campus were in either the army or navy during the war. Hoyt Blackwell, now head of the Greek and Bible department at Mars Hill, was a member of a crew on a six-inch gun in the 312th Field Artil lery, Seventy-ninth Division. Mr. Blackwell also had a grandfather that was a major in the Confederate army during the war between the states. J. A. McLeod another of the fac ulty, was a corporal in Bat. D, 58th Field Artillery. Mr. McLeod did not reach France during the war, but was prepared to go as the war closed. His grandfather and also his father saw service in the Confederate army. 0. L. McGinnis, a student, was in Co. C, 28th Infantry and was sta tioned at Camp Dix, New Jersey, during the major part of the war. He is now a student of the college taking a regular course. R. M. Lee, one of the deans of the college, was a private in Co. B, S.A. T.C. Mr. Lee did not serve overseas but was stationed at home during the war. His father was a member of the home guard of the army of the South. James P. Anderson was in the 149th Artillery during the war. He is now a student of the college. 1. N. Carr, dean of men, enlisted in 1917 as a private and was promoted. Before the armistice he was recom mended for commission which was ac At the regular meeting, November 7 the Nonpareil Literary Society dedicated its program to Armistice Day. The hall was beautifully dec orated with the National colors. The program consisted of an essay on Armistice by Thelma Harding, a vo cal solo, Donnie May Norman; poem, “In Flaqders Field,” Margaret Green; “The Big Four,” Emily Patrick, Myr tle Elmore, Winifred White, and Car rie Green; short story, “Greater Love,” Francis Barnes. The program had been well planned and impressed and inspired every one present with the spirit of patriotism. At the preceding weekly meeting the society presented a Hallowe’en program participated in by Sharon Buckner, Bessie Leiby, Virginia Stikeleather, Margaret Allen, Nellie Butler, Emily Upchurch, and Kath leen Marshall. Following the pro gram brief talks were made by two visitors, Mrs. Milstead and W. C. Capel.
