more glory to the university.' the more

student body and by the head of the
university? , Shall we, forget theman
who brings the greatest renown to his
alma mater in future years and glorify
the man who merely brings the .tran

the university feel prouder of Senator

In chapel Monday morning Dr
Venable spoke to the students on the
question ot the undue i prominence of
athletics in college life. As he him
self stated Dr. Venable cf me to node
finite conclusion but it seemed to us
that he rather thought the trend of
public opinion was right and the ath
lete deseres all the glory and the ad
miration that he gets, also that the
scholar is getting his just porUoat
when he gets none. Dr. Venable did
n't mention the men of literary distinc
tion in his comparison with athletics
but spoke only of the scholar, the Phi
Beta Kappa man. In a former edito
rial we tried to get a just comparison
of the different sets of men and we
think that even above the scholar, if
anything, ought to come the literarj'
men.4 However only the scholars
were mentioned in chapel.' Dr. Ven
able stated as his belief that the reason
the athlete so shines in the eyes of
the student body is that his deeds are
essentially unselfish and that, on the
other hand the man who seeks honor
in his books is working solely for him
self and the students know it. We be
lieve this to be a super ncial view to
take in respect to the scholar It is
true that the football player wins re
nown for his college. We believe that
this reason actuates our representa
tives to a certain extent. But remem
ber that the renown does not all go to
the university. A big share goes to
the player himself, A selfish person
al ambition urges on the athlete as
well as the unselfish desire to win for
his alma mater. To, work solely for
the glory of something else than one's
self comes rarely indeed to anyone.
It is simply a question of to what ex
tent each man is incited by personal

that the business of the university is
to make citizens. This statement we
believe is generally accepted as true.
The man to be honored then, it seems
to us, is the man, who aids the uni
versity all he can, who does the most
he can to turn out good citizens. Here
is where the scholar does his work.
Never before, as today, have trained
minds been so largely in demand
The better trained a man's mind the
better chance he has to render service.
The state today doesn't need horse
power. It needs the power of mind.
Then who is giving himself better
training for citizenship, the man who
spends most of his time and who cen
ters all of his energies upon hardening
his muscles, or the man, who is train
ng his mind so as to meet problems'
ind to overcome them with ' certainty
With Other Colleges 'I
Three or four decades - ago, when
Yale Chapel exercises were humdrum,
the hard seats disciplinary and. college
unities outside Chapel more intense, an
undergraduate vote in. favor of abolish

its stalwart majority. Of late years
repeated votes of the undergraduates
in favor of compulsory r Chapel indx

ditions the movement now afoot to se
cure a larger attendance at Chapel of
members of the Facul ty is well-grounded
in logic and fitness-besides. having
the force of example; In a rugh way
the undergraduate body, at Chapel may
be divided into two pares one", a minor
part, that views Chapel on its austere
side, deems it a form of discipline and
a hardship; the other- and; major-part
that takes the devout or sentimental
view, sees in Chapel-with its thousand
massed faces the symbol of a unified

r.purham, Nov. 27. Thanksgiving
Day was a - general holiday and the
students took advantage of it in vari
ous , ways. Many took long walks
through the woods around the college,
while others went home to spend the
day." Two picnics were given, one by
the A. T. O. fraternity at Mr. Duke's 5 Fancy Groceries and ? Cigars, I
home about ten miles in the country Tobaccos, Fruits, and Confectioneries
brijthe Chapel. Hill road. The other CAFE IN CONNECTION
was an independent one got up by M - '" '"
several of the students and took place iu c u i u i a i l n o U r S
near the college. A large delegation
went to Norfolk to see the A. and
boys get walloped by V. P. I.
Wake Forest; Nov. 29. Wake For
est celebrated yesterday and all col
lege work was practically suspended.
The victorious debating team returned
from Ashland on the evening train
arid was met at the station by over
two hundred wildly yelling students.
Borne aloft on the shoulders of .-the
cheering crowd the speakers were car
ried from the depot to Memorial hall,
rows of bonfires lighting up the way
for the triumphal entry and signaling
to the outside world the fact that
Wake Forest has met another foe in
debate and has triumphed. The pro
cession was headed by the band and
the students marching behind the
speakers kept up a continual uproar
with songs and yells.
The hall was tilled and the walls
literally shook with the tumult.
Songs and yells filled the air and the
student body stood for five minutes
giving vent to its pent-up enthusiasm,
waving pennants and tossing hats
high into the air. Besides the student
body there were present quite a num
ber df the ladies of the hill who enter
ed into the jubilee with great zest.
l Dr. E. W. Sikes presided and after
the song, 4 'O, Here's to Wake Forest",
brief address of welcome to
ifie returning heroes. He then called
on "Bull" Collins to speak in behalf of
jthe student body. In his.own inimita
ble style Collins made a speech that
set the1 crowd to yelling anew. He
spoke of enthusiasm and how much it
has accomplished. Rome won victo
ries so long as she celebrated them on
f Dr. Poteat, who accompanied the
debaters to Ashland, was asked to tell
bjpw it was done. . He told how th e
fellows clearly outclassed the Randolph-Macon
boys in every point of
the debate. He then spoke highly of
-Randolph-Macon as a college, saying
tat' it is one of the strongest of our
smaller Southern colleges. He quoted
the president 'of Randolph-Macon as
saying that they were too much inter
ested in athletics.
: Dr. Poteat read a congratulatory
telegram from Dr. J. W. Lynch and
there was more yelling. - j

number of amusing incidents connected
with the debate and the debaters, the i
heroes of the day, Jones and Johnson,
werie called on. Jones spoke first, say
iqg that it' was- the backing that
Wake Forest gave her debaters that
had led her so often to victory. John-
sqn gave some of his experiences be
fore and after the- debate. Dr. Sikes
then declared the meeting
