The speaker of the evening, Mr.
Carl Goerch, a noted journalist of
Washington, N. C., chose as his sub-
^t, “The Benefits of a Journalistic
Career.’’ The newspaper man’s great
est benefit is the experience that he
jdenves through intimate contact with
the best people. The thrill which he
receives when hi» woik is published is
patifying and also serves as a power-
.rul stimulus to greater achievements.’’
Do not enter the newspaper profos-
||Sion for selfish reasons,’’ Mr. Goerch
j said, “because there are many hard-
j ships; but if you love it and are will-
j mg to work, you will receive ample
J dividends and you will be truly hap
} Ipy.”

The preliminaries for the boys and
the girls who shall represent the
school in the forensic contests for the
spring were held in the auditorium on
October 28 and November 4.
Many students took part in the
preliminaries and much spirit was
manifested during the tryouts.
Those selected among the young
men to take part in the debates are as
follows, Fred Bose, Ben Cox, Evan
Evans, Cooper Gretter, Milton Hamby
Nelson Jarrett, John Johnson, Hoyle
Lee, Clarence Mayo, W. F. McLester,
Mard Pittman, and Woo Rosser.
The young ladies who shall take
part are: Lillian Turbyfill, Grace El
kins, Katherine Curl, Alta Ruth
Reese, Gertrude Blaylock,Martha Par
ker, Ruby Hayes, Marie McNeil,
Kathleen Gilliand, Gertrude Small'
Mamie Kelly, and Sara Fox.
The material is good, and all indi
cations point to another most success
ful season. Prof. J. B. Huff will coach
the teams this year in the absence of
w Prof. William Grubbs who last year
^ coached the team that won the state
'^= championship in the boy’s class.
The debate' season last year was
a marked success. Any team will miss
the .services of .such men as Wm. Ca-
pel, Jas. Cherry, and Scott Buck. The
team lost only two debates the entire
season. The affirmative team of last
year won three debates and lost two.
They obtained nine out of a possible
thirteen votes cast. The negative
team did not loose a debate the entire
season. They won six debates, and
received twelve out of thirteen votes
cast. During the state championship
series the affirmative and negative
teams won twelve out of a possible,
thirteen votes.
The girls season was a marked
success also. They broke almost even
during’ {he season.
The first debate is looked forward
to with a great deal of anticipation by
the student body, and it is hoped that
the record of last year will even
improved upon.

through November 2. There was a

Conference. That’s the B. S. U. It

We left here some time between
Wednesday morning and Thursday
afternoon (it all depends on how we
went). Different ones left at differ
ent times. Most of us went by Ath
ens, Ga., and Stone Mountain. At At
hens we saw the University of Geor

stickers he could put in his pocket.

0 the largest delegations from
State, having sent forty repre
course. Ah! Those meetings. The
best speakers that could be found in
the South, with the addition of sev-
eral from the North, were there. They
all brought us wonderful messages,
from which we got a great blessing.
e learned that quite a few young
men finaly made up their minds to
accept God’s call to the ministry
through these inspiring and uplifting
services. Perhaps we enjoyed most
the devotionals led by Dr. Gordon
of New York. Dr. Gordon carried a
message that was most inspiring to all
of us. He is a very quiet sort of man,
and one must listen carefully if he
wishes to catch the message. Dr.
Gordon, when he would come to one
of the more important points in his
•t-Q ll,F^ — 1 .7 . _
tarn where we enjoyed looking upon talk, would say softlv “Av.
one of the mnef ^ \ soitiy, Are you
listening?” This would always bring
regrets and flowers. Mrs. Dawson
probably made the most heart-stirr
ing talk of the whole conference; and
It brought remarks from every one,
to say nothing of the tears it brought
from, as she said, “the most stony
hearted one there.”
Music was furnished all during the
meeting by Mr. G. L. Hamrick, at the
organ. His meditative music was a
brilliant factor in the success of the
conference. The singing was effect
ively led by Mr. Scolfield, who had
general charge of the music. Then
let us not forget the prayer services
held by our North Carolina delega-
were played. The men tried their luck
at fishing apples from a tub of water
with their mouth. Dr. Sams seemed
to have had experience in this line
before. The young ladies tried to
eat their apples which were suspended
by a string. During the games a
gioup of ghosts came in from their
wanderings and entertained those
present with several spooky songs. At
the close of the evening delicious re-
-reshments were served, and all left
with a spooky feeling.
