Text from Pages 1 - 220 of the 1920 volume:

May Twenty-fifth Nineteen Hundred and Twenty IP They Did Not Die Too Soon Progress, no longer blacl(mailed fcp crowned ruffians, will promptly meet the war debts. Imagination, free to exploit all domains, knows where the salvaging wealths are hid. Microscope, retort, and crucible will find more billions than guns have lost. The increased energy and enthusiasm of peoples, liberated from fear and restriction, will soon finance the future. Faith and hope have feathered their dreams and sent ambition winging to the stars. Never again shall they cower before doubt — or let expediency counsel their souls. We know at last that justice is invulnerable — that the Right is God ' s eternal will — that conscience and courage are impenetrable panoplies. Prejudice and caste have yielded the highroad, and insolent minor- ities no longer thwart popular weal. Civilization is resolved that parasitic classes shall pass. Future opportunity, earth over, is reserved to merit. These things have we brought humanity from the battlefield. Such is our victory, and our children shall not regret the cost. The World-machine shall never again he smashed by fanatic or greedy swords. Now and ever after we shall be builders, arid our conflicts shall only be against darkness and disease and the wantonness of nature. Tomorrow shall not miss the millions resting on the breast of France — man is but a measure of minutes. They were marked to perish by the bayonets of the clock- Time would have slain them had the Prus- sian not. They did not die too soon who held the Front for Christendom. What equal glories could their further years have won? — Herbert Kaufman. Fifteen Martyrs in Humanity ' s Cause W{m HE Class of 70 feels that it honors itself in dedicating this issue of The Phipsicli to (he fifteen sons of Elon who gave up their lives in the cause of human freedom- — fifteen as noble-spiriled heroes as ever offered the best iSey had for country and for right. And five hundred eighly-six others from Elon who were just as ready to make the supreme sacrifice as were the fifteen whose bright, promising young lives went out m response to humanity ' s call, ed m the six hundred and one of her sons who sought the colors and the fifteen who made tSe supreme gift of thei r lives to make the world afe place for the indwelling of the principles of eternal truth as revealed in the gospel of the Christ. April 6. 1917 — a memorable day! The day of the dawn of world-freedom! The day of America ' s new birth into a recognition of her duty to the world! And on that day three sturdy sons of Elon volunteered in the service of their country. W. F. (Happy) Odom. who gave up his life in France, W. M. Horner, and Elvin Tuck. They were followed by large numbers accepted for the first Officers Training; Camp, and by still others for other departments of the service, until before the Commencement in May it looked as if no male students would be left. Happy beat the hearts of those who love Elon when they consider the response of her sons (o the opportunity to serve the cause of humanity! And now the war is over, the victory achieved, and the work of world- rebuilding to be undertaken. We who are left lo do this work rejoice that we hve in an hour like this and that forget the shed blood of the fifte privilege might be ours. We hearts, in the tasks that chalient our rich inheritance and our he edgment of the debt we owe memory of their heroic deeds our behalf. It is in response to our spirit of gratitude for the service their death rendered us and the world and in grateful recognition of the same that the Class of " 20 dedicates to them this book of our hands and hearts, while we acknowledge through our tears that these brothers of ours did not die the martyr ' s death in vain nor too soon. O. martyrs, you have not died in vain. In the windrowed heaps of the scarlet slain; And this is the reason why: Our tears are the dew and your blood is the rain. Lest the flower of faith should die. We shall not forget, though you come no more. When the twilight turns to the dark; But your shadow falls for aye at the door Where it fell so oft in the days of yore — O. men with the martyr ' s mark! ■ can labor in a caus e Ilk. e this.

Pleasant memories, if retained, may return to us again and again, carrying us back into the past and permit- ting us to live ever again the happiest of our experiences. In contemplation of the future we are prone to allow these little things of the past to be crowded from our minds, and many beautiful friendships and associations to sink into oblivion. This volume of the Phipsicli is offered as a record and souvenir of our happy, youthful, college days. If it helps us. as we grow older, to a retrospec- tive glimpse of our beloved Alma Mater and friends of 1920, the purpose of the work will have been accomplished. ■ I ■ ■ U .:,J THE COLLEGE W. A.

(61) Senior Class History O the seer, coming events cast their shadows before — not so to the historian. To the person who chronicles the events and happenings in the hfe of the Class of 1 920, the eye must turn backward, and the mind must be remmiscent. That September day of 1 9 1 6 on which the members of the Class of ' 20 met has not yet faded from the memory of those left behind. They came from far and near, some from the sunny chme of Alabama where the sun kisses the cheeks of the flowering rose, and others from states scattered far and wide over the eastern half of the United States. Ninety-three strong they came to enter the portals of the college they have learned to love so well. When the Class of ' 20 was organized, which was accomplished some two months after matriculation, the class chose for its motto the phrase handed down by some Roman of renown: " Laborat Qui Vincit. " The eagle, monarch of the air, was chosen for the class mascot, and maroon and black for its colors. 7 he members of the class were inexperienced, yet they fell at once into the various activities of college life. As the greatness of their work dawned and the vision of college life widened, each felt it his duty to strive and strike for the best. But, owing to their handicap of inexperience, the Freshmen were sent to the wall both in athletics and in debate, and the laurels for which they strove were carried off by the upper classes. But, amid it all, the year was filled with work and happiness, and when examinations were over and our year ' s work done, we joyfully journeyed homeward for the summer holiday season. After spending a pleasant vacation with friends and those at home, we returned to our Alma Mater to resume the satiation of our thirst for knowledge, happy and proud over the fact that we were entering into a year ' s work that classed us as typical and com- plete Sophs. We were fewer in number than in the previous year, but our hopes and ambitions were mounting higher day by day and we were determined to achieve the best. This was a victorious year for us, winning, as we did, the debate from the Freshmen. On the varsity teams we were ably represented by McLean, Gray and Preston, which helped us to win also the championship in basketball and baseball. 1 he fall of 1918 brought us back to the Hill again, but not so light-hearted and gay, for the terrible hand of war stretched over the land. Several of our noble number responded gladly and willingly to the call and went overseas to fight for the cause of peace and democracy. Of course the absence of our classmates on the campus, in the classroom, yea, everywhere, saddened us. Yet when our thoughts would wander back to the noble spirit that prompted their going and the cause for which they left us, we (62) were glad. Nor was the war the only thing that saddened our hearts. A great epidemic of Spanish influenza broke out among us early in the fall, causing the death of two of our beloved classmates, leaving just twenty-seven of us on the Hill. With grim determi- nation we pressed on, knowing that the goal for which we sought was not far distant. Bit by bit we gained success in every phase of college life. In the Junior-Senior debate we were the victors, but were defeated in the championship for basketball. As much as we Juniors wanted to be Seniors, we entertained our leaders at a delightful banquet in March, 1919, amid the Junior-Senior decorations. Time passed very rapidly and happily for us the remainder of the term. Finals were upon us, which determined our seniority. Back again in the fall of ' 19, we were twenty-eight strong. The major portion of our college sojourn is now history. We have learned much, and much we have left unlearned. From our text-books we have acquired knowledge, but we have achieved more from the habits and associations we have formed. For nearly four years we have labored together with patience and love for the prosperity and success of our dear old class and our beloved college. With grateful hearts we have watched her rapid strides and achievements. Now our stay is almost ended, and when commencement comes we shall separate sad-hearted. But we shall go forth bound forever by ties of a beautiful class friendship and abiding love and loyalty for our Alma Mater. So here ' s to you, dear classmates, the best wish to each of you through the coming years — may you each go forward to the highest goal and ever keep in mind the sweet memory of old ' 20. Historian. (63) Senior Class Prophecy T was Graduation Day! The Class had assembled at the station, and amid much handshaking and many tears, we had parted. My roommate, Henderson, and I had decided to put on a httle celebration that night, and among other things, he had provided a little beverage which I did not know the contents of, but which threw me into a strange stupor. Everything seemed to be spinning around me for awhile, but presently figures began to take shape, and I recognized some of them. I was looking into the future. Cne year — two years — five years passed in rapid succession. Then I began to see more clearly and recognized several of my classmates. I saw a ship and an officer in uniform on the bridge. He turned and I recognized " Squint " Fogleman, who had tried many things without success, and finally, seized with a desire to travel, had taken to seafaring. And who was this among the passengers? None other than our little Jap classmate, who, after nearly ten years of work in the mission fields of her own country, was returning for a visit to America. On the same ship were two others, Clarence Holland and Mary D. Atkinson, who had quarreled soon after graduation. Both had taught for awhile, and now in returning from a tour of Europe, had met quite by accident. They seemed very friendly again after their long absence from each other. Then I found myself looking into a large window, on which was painted in large letters " Amick and Dofflemyer, Attorneys. " The name of the town was Fiddler ' s Green, Va. There seemed to be a reunion or something in progress within, several men of middle age being gathered around a table with glasses of grape juice before them. There was " Gene " Rainey, whose well-cut coat proclaimed him one of the successful ministers of the times. O. H. Henderson was discussing his latest cartoon with another man whom I recognized after a moment ' s thought to be Carl McNally. They had a copy of the American Magazine before them, and the front page drawing no longer bore the name of Harrison Fisher, but that of Haywood himself, who was now a famous artist. McNally was a noted physician of Richmond who had come over to meet with the fellows. And next to them sat another of our number, Roy Morton, who had gained some note as a civil engineer. At that time he was very much interested in a system of war gardens, to be used in the coming war with Japan. Turning my eyes a little down the street, I noticed a big signboard which bore the picture of Janie Angel, with this announcement, " World ' s most noted snake charmer. " It seemed that, having failed on " mere man, " she had directed her vamping powers to the reptile world. Just at this time I went completely under the influence of the drug and dreamed. I was getting off the train in New York. In front of the Pennsylvania Station people were being welcomed by a great band, and upon getting closer, I recognized Lonnie Sides as the director. Lonnie and I started up the street after the concert. He told me that all New York was stirred with the announcement that the world ' s greatest evangelist, Percy E. Lindley, was to speak in the Tabernacle for one night only. We tried to see him, but could not for the crush at the door. The next day I went to Coney Island, where I found Ben Everette and John Watson (64) » ccEL ' 3SST7;;, running a burlesque show. After seeing " Gay Paris " as members of the A. E. F., they could no longer be content with life on the farm. I learned from them that Marvin Gray was coach at Amherst, and although old and partially bald, had charge of all forms of athletics. " Daddy " Woodburn, they said, was doing research in the chemical laboratory at Harvard, specializing in alcohols. At this moment a vigorous slap on the shoulder caused me to turn, and there stood " Sergeant " Rippy, who had never lost his love for the water and had succeeded Mack Sennett in featuring the " Bathing Beauties. " Speaking of our friends, I learned that Hobart Lynch, after much advertising, had secured a " ' Farmer " — Josephine — and had settled down as a country gentleman. Misses Starnes and McCollum were instructors in the famous open-air school at Asheville, N. C, and Juana Pinnix, after years of toil and tribulations, had secured a husband through an advertising agency, and was then enjoying all the blessings of life. I seemed to settle into a stupor once more, and when I again became conscious I was in Washington. I went downtown to the Cafe Alabama, where I found the front doors locked. Entering by the side door, I found the proprietor — the same old Lynwood Floyd, guarding them. He had learned the tricks of the trade back at Elon years ago, while head waiter there. He admitted to me that Mrs. Thelma Burton Floyd was as de.ermined in the leadership of her husband as she had been of others in college days. I next found myself in Greensboro, where the first sign to attract my attention was, " Parks and Scholz, Attorneys at Law. Cigar-cases a specialty. " When I went back to the station en route for Burlington, I heard a familiar voice chanting, " Train, number twenty-two, south- bound, for Albemarle, Thomasville, Ramseur, Glen Raven, Siler City, and all points east. " To my surpnse I recognized the owner of the voice to be Earl Erastus Sechriest. As I passed through Elon I saw with pride that it had grown beyond all recognition, being the center of a large and prosperous city and having many beautiful buildings. At Burlington I got off the train and started up the street. At the corner drug store was seated an old man with a long white beard in a heated argument as to whether college baseball was as scientific as it once was. It was nobody but the " Future Me, " now too decrepit to play, but still holding to the only real interest I ever had. The shock from this sight was so great that I came out from the strange sleep to find that the whole thing was a dream. But it had proved to me that our class was destined to do great things in the world. Prophet.

(68) (69) M orning In morning s early dawning I find my happiest hours. When ruby glows are rising From their Eastern bowers, Clothing earth in vivid hues Of richest fairy colors ; For then no sad thoughts or blues Can come to me or my fellows From life s perversity. I ' ve seen the mighty mountains In sunset ' s richest tints; And at eve the fountains Where the rainbow ' s color ghnls. Yet these are evening thoughts, Whate ' er her colors be, That life 15 dearly bought By such as you and me, Paid in coin of fading day. The eve has gorgeous pictures For sensitive artist eye. Whose hand can paint on canvas The beauties of the sky. For those who see beyond Sad is the evening time. As we think of chances gone, Such as were yours and mine, Faded with the light of day. Give me the morning hours With all that beauty lends Of days and weeks that ' re ours, And work that love begins. Morning is llic time of youth. When hearts and hopes are wild. Seeking beauty and truth With faith and hopes of a child. Free from the burdens of life. The gleam of glist ' ning dew, In sparkling diamond beads Are kindly deeds we do For him who succor needs. The singing birds of morn Cease their songs at eve; The brilliant colors of dawn Fade from the sky and leave The earth to silence, to dark. The dewy moining air Fills the yearning earth with life And nature smiling, fair. Conquers every sign of strife. Morning ' s the time of youth When life lies full ahead, With beauty, love and truth Writ in ev ' ry line we ' ve read Of life ' s prophetic scroll. H. M. Lynch.

On a glorious September day We came with hearts so full of cheer. Upon the Hill four years to slay. We came with aims and ideals clear For both our work and for our play. We were a jolly crowd of girls and boys, The Class of Twenty-one, Who had hardly passed the age of toys. So full of mirth and fun. But we have never lost our mental poi3e, Not even on Math One. Two years and more it ' s been, they say, But has It been that long Since we were Freshmen, green and gay A joyful, happy throng. Or, IS it as 1 1 seems — one day. Of love and hope and song? Yet there are times we can ' t forget When we fought so hard— and lost. We won our share of things— but yet We won them at a cost. For we ' ve been there with fire and grit With every ball that ' s tossed. Though many faults we may possess. We launched out with a song. Still basing all on hopefulness With faith and courage strong. And this our purpose more or less. To do the right and right tSe wrong. Looking backward, looking backward, The Class of Twenty-one Is always near the topmost ring In the victories won. And this, our motto, we will sing, " Not finislied, but begun. " Poet. (82) Junior Class History j ' P T was three jears ago in the fall cf 1917 that we, the Class of ' 21, came to Elon to win for ourselves, through our own efforts and by the aid of ' ff Si i ' faculty, fame and a name long to be remembered m the annals of B S f ' 8i our institution. " ' At the station we were nearly drowned by a heavy downpour of rain, but were rescued at the critical moment by Coach, other members of the faculty, and the dignified Seniors, who condescended to show us to our respective dormitories. 1 he next day we experienced the stupendous task of matriculation. When the honorable faculty notified us that we had been on the Hill long enough to be recognized as naturalized students, we met, and in selecting a pilot to guide us safely over the perilous sea of " Freshmanship, " we elected a " Big Gun, " C. M. Cannon, and pushed bravely forward, no longer separately but as an organization, the Class of ' 21. During our Freshman year, we lost the Inter-class Debate to the Sophs, much to our regret, but we took defeat as best we could, the terrible disappointment only s!rengthenin2 our determination to win the following year. The session of 1918-19 was a glorious one for the Class of ' 21, even though our number was greatly diminished by the demands of war and the urgency of the call to fight for democracy. Thanks to our wonderful athletes, we won every championship that the Elon field of athletics offered, and also much to our joy, we were victorious in the Inter-class Debate. In the fall of 1919, when the present Junior Class held its firs! annual meeting, we were glad indeed to welcome back those gallant classmates of ours who had returned from " Over There. " In the fall we lost the bajketball championship to the victorious " Freshies " by one score. But to our highest joy we won unanimously in the In ' er-class Debate with the dignified Seniors. We had many plans and looked forward with much enthusiasm to the time when we should entertain the " Lordly Seniors " at the Junior-Senior reception, given in the early spring of 1920. Elon has never witnessed such a splendid affair. Thus has fared the Class of ' 2 1 for the past three years. That we have had our perils, our joys, our ups and downs, it is true. But always we have pressed forward and upward as a united body toward our goal, that of seniority and graduation. And now, examinations being over, for a short while we are leaving old Elon, feeling that we have done all we could to support our college, our Maroon and Gold, and have been loyal to our class. Hoping that the fall of 1920 will see us safely back en the Hill adorned with all the dignity of Seniors, our Purple and Gray still waving and bearing high our motto: " Not finished but begun, " we, the Class of ' 21, bid you farewell until then.

Toiling, struggling, ever upward. Each day kindling our hopes anew, Trying to place the laurel wreath Upon the Class of ' 22. In this life we ' re two years old. We start new things and put them through; In doing deeds we ' re brave and bold To make a " REP " for ' 22. Poet. (88) Sophomore Class History TRENUOUS and uncertain were the times when the Class of ' 22 first appeared on the threshold of college life. Our country had engaged in , , g the Great Struggle and the call had gone forth for everyone to do his (C J ' j part. Many brave hearts were already on the firing line, while others equally brave were either preparing to go or endeavoring to keep the home fires burning while preparing to fight the battles to come after the war should cease. The country was aglow with patriotism. The government, realizing the importance of preparing for peace as for war, decided to establish the Students ' Army Training Corps, and called upon the colleges to rally to the great task. With char- acteristic patriotism, Elon responded, and it was during the trying ordeals of preparation for an organization of the Students ' Army Training Corps that the Class of ' 22 was born. Our organization was effected on November 19, 1918. Dr. W. C. Wicker pre- sided. Therefore, we adopted him as our sponsor. On account of prevailing conditions, not much definite work was accomplished by our organization during the remaining weeks of 1918. The war having ended, the Students ' Army Training Corps was disbanded in December, leaving us to begin again with the New Year. After the holidays, we reorganized, and with renewed zeal began the last half of our Freshman year. Much progress was made during this period. The class was more closely unified. Monthly meetings were held at which literary programs were rendered, lime passed and soon successful examinations passed us on to the Sophomore stage. In the beginning of this year, we found our number reduced from over a hundred to about fifty, but the loss in number was compensated for by an increased mterest and determination to exemplify our motto, " Be prepared. " Though at times we may have seemed to display our wisdom and importance, nevertheless, we have entered more fully into the college spirit and have endeavored to accomplish that which is worth while. In this endeavor we feel that our efforts have not been fruitless. In reviewing our brief history we might say that we do not lay claim to extraordinary precociousness, boast of glaring victories, or vaunt in superior accomplishments. But we believe that, to the various departments of college life, we have contributed an honorable part. In the classrooms we have exemplified our motto ; in the society halls we have put forth splendid efforts; on the platform we have demonstrated ability and taste; on the athletic field we have displayed that skill and courage which acknowledges no defeat. And while standing behind the lines, we have electrified the teams with the " pep " and enthusiasm which is so essential to success. Although reviewing the past, our face is toward the future. We hope to so grapple with our problems of college life that when we go out from our Alma Mater and meet the difficulties of life we shall " Be prepared. " HISTORIAN.

(95) Freshman Class History " E landed m Elon College September the ninth, nineteen hundred and W ms nineteen, all green as to the affairs of college life, but all eager and anxious learn. Our first few days were spent mainly in getting acquainted with the College and its surroundings. Then came books and classes, together with the first companionship of our fellow schoolmates. All these we became accustomed to in a short time and presently settled down to the regular routine of college life. After being here only a few weeks (seemingly months, however) and seeing all the other classes organized, the desire for a Freshman organization began to tcike shape in our minds. But as the rules of the college will not permit the new students to organize until the first of November, we had to content ourselves as patiently as possible and wait for that day to arrive. In the meantime, we endeavored to acquaint ourselves with the different members of the group, discover and select the ones whom we deemed best qualified for officers of the class. As we were all strangers in a strange land, this was quite a difficult task, but nevertheless very interesting. On the first Monday in November our class had its first meeting. At this gathering we elected our president and other officers for the year. From this day on there has been a united feeling among the class and good fellowship has reigned supreme. The class has stood together on every important issue with the idea in mind to make this class the best that ever attended Elon College. Our motto, " Build for Character, not Fame, " is the predominating idea in the class. The class won honors in football and in the hour of wildest enthusiasm snatched the championship from the upper classes in the interclass basketball series. In every contest of any description in which the class participated, the organized spirit was shown — the spirit by which one person can help another, the spirit that is the fundamental basis for every successful organization. We hope our future years of college life will be as successful as the first year has been and that we will finally end our Senior career with honor to ourselves and with dignity to our Alma Mater.

(160) VARSITY BASKETBALL SQUAD (161) Basketball, 1920 ' HEN Coach Johnson made his first call for the old indoor sport, about twenty husky lads responded. Along with the number came four letter men. They were " Elby " Johnson, Sides, Atkinson and McCauley. For a long lime it was hard to tell who was going to make the Varsity, for the Freshmen were fighting hard and showing good form as well. The opening game of the season was played on the home floor against Trinity, who had a team of old experienced players, and was the hardest fight ever witnessed on our floor. When the time-keeper blew his whistle for the end of the game the score was tied. After playing five minutes longer, the " Lucky Guard, " Martin, shot the winning point for Trinity. One of our old rivals, Davidson, went down in defeat on our floor, I 8 to 24. On our southern trip we were unfortunate, four games out of six being cancelled on account of " flu. " But Wofford, the fastest and best team in South Carolina, was beaten with perfect ease by the " Husky Tar-Heels, " who caged the ball from all points of the floor, holding their opponents to a small margin. Upon our return, we found that our schedule had been broken up by influenza in the college, and the playing of the season was over. Throughout the season. Captain Sides measured up to the expectations of his team- mates in every respect. He was not only admired by his own team for his geniality, but opposing tea ms always found him fnendly, both on the floor and out of the game as well. He played under great difficulty during the season, first starting at guard, and changing later to a forward position. In spite of this, he was the fastest man on the team, and several times scored the most points for our team. At foul-shooting he holds an average record. " Jonnie ' Johnson was one of the hardest fighters ever seen on our floor. Although he did not hold his opponent scoreless, he was always shooting those " long ones " from the center of the floor, which made it much easier for us to win. We admired " Jonnie ' s " habitual coolness, and he always played the game well. McCauley, better known as " Jerry, " was our old standby. Jerry was never known to shoot a goal or even to try, but there has never been a man at Elon who could take his place as stationary guard and fill it so successfully. When two men were coming down the floor with the ball he could always outguess them and break up the play. Atkinson, though slow on his feet, could slip around the guard with a knack all his own, and cage the ball for a " peep shot " every time. Not only was he a good shot, but he was one of the best floor workers who ever played on our court. Perry, our " Freshman Lad, " played a wonderful game at center, always holding his opponent to a small margin and scoring many points himself. Next season we may look for some wonderful performances from him. Newman played a good game at forward, being not only a good offensive man, but good in defense as well. Johnson, " B. B., " was a cool player, always in the game, and no one could put himself into the game more thoroughly than he.

S. Johnson W. E. Marlette THIRD ROW L. R. Sides W. C. King J. L. Martin (167) Baseball Review, 1919 HEN Coach Johnson made his first call for candidates for the baseball team, thirty-five men responded. Among them were five letter men, Simpson, captain of the team; Johnson, second base; Sides and Martm, pitchers, and Murphy, shortstop. The most promising among the new men were: Marlette, first base; Doughton and Kendrick, pitchers; Brown, Allen and Hutchinson, outfield ; King, catcher ; Atkinson and Newman, third base. Last year Elon turned out a team equal to compete with any college or university in the South. Elon met and defeated every team in the S ' .a ' e except Wake Forest. We triumphed over Carolina with a score of 4 to 1 , and won two victories from Davidson ; also one from Guilford. On our southern trip through South Carolina our team was not quite so lucky, losing three games and winning two. On our northern trip through Virginia we were more fortunate, defeating Lynchburg 8 to 1 , holding Washington and Lee to a fourteen-inning battle but finally losing by a score of 3 to 2. V. P. I. hit the old pill hard, but the outcome was an even break. Sides and Martin were the backbone of the pitching staff. Sides twice pitched us to victory over Davidson, and Martin carried us to victory over Carolina. Doughton won from Lynchburg. " Hot Chu Biddy " King, with all his gas, talked many a batter into his mitt. Captain Simpson was the wizard in the outfield and handled the stick with equal pride. Marlette, Elon ' s heavy slugger, was wide-awake at first. Murphy , although handicapped at the bat, was a master of the infield. Atkinson proved to be the best third baseman seen here in many years. Allen was weak with the bat, but played a good game at left. " Jonnie " Johnson was known to be the hardest fighter of the infield, and was a great asset to the team. What! Yep! Old Brown was right there in right, his long drives pushed many runs across the plate. The prospects for the coming season are exceedingly bright, with six letter men of last year ' s team, and in addition, the hard-hitting " Squint " Fogleman of ' 16, ' 17, ' 18, and Watson, the fast infielder of the ' 15 team, with a nucleus of last year ' s second string men, also a number of promising Freshmen. It is felt that a well-balanced team will wear the Maroon and Old Gold this season when the " Umps " say " Play ball. " (168) (169) MARY D. ATKINSOrj Tennis Sponsor ELON COLLEGE, N. C.

Since returned to the Hill are they, Of two other lads of their former class Who gave their lives ' mid shells and gas And for them these words would say: You fell in the front of the fighting line. In the fore of the raging fr ay. Where the cannons crash and the bullets whine And the fields are red as new-pressed wine; And you sleep in France today. You fell in freedom ' s holy name, In the dawn of the world ' s new day; And you wrote in blood your scrolls of fame; ' Mid shriek and shell and hell ' s red flame You walked your scarlet way. But. brothers, you ' ve not died in vain, For you ' ll live till the end of time; Your record shines without a stain. The soul of faith marches on unslain To the heights of the hills sublime. R. J. M. E. H. R. Ex- ' 18. (182) ATURES Social Section WHAT IT WAS AND HOW IT HAPPENED Junior-Senior Reception ' OR many years the m ost enjoyable occasion for the upper classmen has been the Junior-Senior Reception. For the last two years, for various reasons, the Juniors have failed to keep up this custom. But the Class of ' 20 is awake to the full understanding that " All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, " and on April 16, 1919, in the halls of the West Dormitory, she proved herself a very charming hostess to the Class of ' 19. Promptly at eight o ' clock the Juniors took their places in the receiving line. The Seniors were introduced to the Juniors by Miss Mary D. Atkinson and Mr. Haywood Henderson. They were then led to the punch bowl, where they were served by Miss Janie Angel and Mr. Carl McNally, while the Junior orchestra furnished the most popular music of the day. I hen the Seniors were seated in the reception room, where they were given a glimpse of what their lives would be on leaving school. Mr. E. E. Sechriest, the Junior Class humorist, interpreted while Mr. Henderson, the artist, gave off-hand drawings of each Senior at his or her future occupation. After this, refreshments were served by four of the Juniors ' " Little Sisters. " Upon each Senior ' s plate was a miniature diploma tied with purple and gold ribbon, which were the Senior colors. 1 he reception halls were artistically decorated in purple and gold, while the corridor was decorated as an exterior. The only decoration used characteristic of the Juniors was their class flower, Richmond Red Rose. (185) (186) " Stunt " N the spring of 1919 the various classes in the college began a series of short, humorous entertainments, one being given by each class in its turn, beginning vsith the SENIORS, and in the course of Time ' s cycle, the Juniors ' turn came. A memorable affair v fas that Pumpkin Center Exhibition. The Class of ' 20 gave a minstrel show, which was decidedly one of the most humorous things of the college year. Being under cover of prepared chalk, burnt cork and lip sticks in abundance, we felt free to yield to all the humorous impulses that ordinary Junior dignity had not permitted us since we had become clothed with the robes of such majestic learning. i he program rendered was beyond the ordinary in the humorous element, fantastical, even bizarre in the world of classical discussion, research work and innate talent. Much gaiety was lent to the occasion by two of our members impersonating clowns and bringing down shouts of laughter from an appreciative audience by their timely jokes, well directed at some member of the faculty or members of the other classes. More than one victim was made to feel ridiculous by some witty saying or joke directed at a blunder of theirs made at some unguarded moment. Messrs. Simpson and Henderson showed much talent in the above role. Miss " Joe " Farmer rendered an essay on " Necks, " wherein all kinds of necks were enumerated and discussed nonsensically, such as long necks, short necks, httle necks, necks of land and bottle necks in their relation to the h.;man race. One of the main points made by this essay was that necks were very useful in conveying good things to that portion of the human anatomy known as the stomach. Miss Farmer is a student of Expression and her talent and sense of humor added a great deal toward making the situation humorous. The nightingale of our class. Miss Atkinson, impersonating a singer from the Palmer School of Sedalia, favored the audience with a solo of the type that such a school would be supposed to produce. Miss Atkinson ' s success in the field of darkey impersonation of vocal talent is assured. A heated debate on the query, " Resolved, That two ' possums up a tree are better than one in the box, " resulted in much amusement among the audience and a battle of wits between those who participated in the remarkable discussion. The judges decided that two ' possums up de tree was wuth more ' n one in de box, ' case dem two up de tree was bound ter be kotched anyway. Messrs. Holland and McNally represented the widely-known Gold Dust Twins in the costumes usually attributed to said celebrities and during the course of the evening ' s (187) performance favored the listeners with a violin solo and a vocal duet entitled, " I dunno v fhat de war ' s about, but I bet, by golly, I ' se gwine fin ' out. " A recitation by Miss McCollum, who is of a vivacious nature, as well as the piece rendered, made much for the final success of the " Pumpkin Center Exhibition, " but do not let us forget the harmonica solo given by " Sech, " " A bumble bee backed up to me and pushed, " was a scream. Also Percy ' s cornet solo, assisted by Mr. Floyd, who kept him cranked up through the number, was very funny indeed. Last, but not least, a quartette was rendered, one of the old-time Southern plantation songs. These were some of the sensible (???) things done in the " stunt. " Since that time, ' 20 ' s ability to enlerlani in a humorous way has never been doubted. m 9 Senior Superlatives Tallest T. B.
