£ i 6 V Class fl l Book2 .f ELON COLLEGE, N.C t Z . . jL - NO LONGER THE PROPERTY x -X(. n i f Rev. William Samuel Long, A.M., D.D. OV ever man can initiate great enterprises. Certain soul qualities are funda- mental in the men who can dream and then undertake. Such leaders in the realm of creative genius are possessed of unfaltering faith — faith in themselves, faith in their fellowmen, faith in the cause they would espouse, and faith in God. Thev are possessed also of giant will-power, inflexible, immovable, consistently iwicemrated on the enterprise in which they are engaged. The word substitute is offensive to such men and sidestepping is foreign to their thought vocabulary. They are men of energy, of terrific enery, which they can deliver with invincible impact in favor of their cause, as well as in opposition to any hindering circumstances. Such men are always the object of deep and abiding affection on the part of those who are willing to aid in the enterprises they inaugurate and of misunderstanding and misrepresentation on the part of those who espouse the status quo. Especially is this true of those who lead in enterprises for social, moral, and spiritual progress. Business men who captain great enterprises and succeed are acclaimed heroes because of the dividends and profits their genius earns for their investors, but Christian captains are oftentimes martyred. Vet they do not murmur. God gives them the grace to be faithful to the end. They labor " for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. " It is to such a man that the Class of ' 24 has, in gratitude and devotion, dedicated their .Annual, tlie highest distinction a class can confer on those vhom they would honor. Pr. W. S. Long, founder and first president of Elon College, sums up in his commanding personality many of the elements that culminate in the leaders of men. He gave himself to the gospel ministry and to the training through education of the Christian t pe of leaders in pulpit and pew for the Kingdom of God. Dr. Long was one of the first men in Alamance County to enter a college. His example in his father ' s home led to the education of the other children, and in the county has induced a host of others to follow in his steps. The soil of Alamance on which he was born, October 22, 1839, had always been dear to Dr. Long. He has served his county in conspicuous ways, and it owes to him a debt of gratitude which cannot be repaid. As pastor of churches in the county, as founder of churches in the county, as county superintendent of schools, as chairman of the committee which located the Christian orphanage in the county, as founder of Graham Female Seminary and of Graham Normal College, he has placed Alamance in his debt, a debt which the people acknowledge, but which they cannot discharge save in grateful appreciation. But his chief contribution to Alamance County and to the Church of Christ was the founding of Elon College. He first dreamed that which is to many a heart the shrine of affection and devotion and the pride of a grateful church. Klon is now in her thirty-fourth year and in the midst of an unexampled rebuilding program. But Elon would not be but for William Samuel Long, and to him, as the far-seeing prophet of God; to him as the man of faith when vision was blurred and the path not only uncertain, but doubtful as well; to him the pioneer of unfaltering and intrepid courage; to him the energetic and unconquerable zealot of a cause that promised only hardship, criticism, and martyrdom, in grateful thanks and loving homage the Class of ' 24 affectionately dedicates the tenth volume of the Phipsicli, and with the dedication prays for him many added years of service and leadership in the cause of Christian education and the Church of Christ. (;rcat leader and great heart of the Christian Church, hail to you and again hail! V. A. IL f l FOREWORD 1 1 iiyXy . 1. 1. V. V. V. .. I. V. . V. V. . I. ». . 1. ,. . V. 1. . V. V- V. I. V. , V. .

IN BOTH WORD AND LIKENESS WE HAVE ENDEAVORED TO RECORD HERE THE FAMILIAR FACES AND SCENES TO WHICH WE HAVE GROWN AC- CUSTOMED AND THAT HAVE BECOME SO MUCH A PART OF US. IF, IN THE FUTURE. ON LOOKING THROUGH THE PAGES OF THIS OUR ANNUAL, THE READER CAN FEEL— FOR THE FIRST OR FOR THE HUNDREDTH TIME —THE SPIRIT THAT PREVAILS AT ELON, THEN WE, THE STAFF. WILL FEEL OUR WORK SUCCESSFUL. TO THOSE WHO HAVE MADE POSSIBLE THIS THE TENTH ISSUE OF THE PHIPSICLI WE EXTEND OUR HEARTFELT THANKS AND APPRECIATION. THE EDITOR. Tke New Elon P gM HE fire of January i8, 1923, has made necessary and, at the Irv ' JK same time, possible a new Elon. The same spirit that has, WIJOBq throughout her history, made Elon the synonym of what is (03 ==$: best in Christian idealism is henceforth to have a more becoming and a more effective means of manifesting itself. The present Senior Class is the first to graduate after liaving used a part of the new plant. It will always be a source of lasting satisfaction to us to ha e had this signal honor; for it is an honor to begin great movements and to endure hardship in a good cause. We have gone to classes with bowed heads and sat in class rooms without doors, and it has been necessary to watch e ery step to keep out of the way of nails and debris. Visitors may have thought we -ere regretful to have to put up with these inconveniences. On the contrary, we gladly did it with no word of complaint, because we cherished the day when the new Elon would be a reality. Twenty-five years from now we will count our present sacrifices as among the chief values of our college course. This new plant will mean an investment of at least a half million dollars in the following buildings and their equipment: 1. Alamance Building — For recitation and administration. 2. Vhitley Building — For auditorium and music department. 3. Carlton Building — For library and research offices for professors. 4. Mooney Building — For Christian education, the social and religious center of the campus. 5. Duke Building — A thoroughly modern laboratory building. Plans have also been niade to beautify the campus by the addition of shrubs, cor.cretc walks, driveways, a brick wall and appro|iriate entrances.

Besides America, five other countries have had the good judgment to send representatives to this illustrious assembly. Today we, the members of this assembly, have really found ourselves — we are organized. I ' nder the guidance of Professor Babcock, we have elected O. C. Johnson president, and have chosen our class debaters. We also elected other officers and attended to the important matter of having committees appointed to select our flower, motto, and colors. At last we are a class, fully aware of the tremendous responsibilities resting upon us, prepared to transact, soberly and sanely, all necessary business. Respectfully, The Spirit of ' 24.

Although approximately two-thirds of our members are now sojourning in other localities, the remainder of the celebrated Class of ' 24 returned to this renowned institution of learning with proper dignity and decorum as becometh Sophomores. Enormous ' 24 ' s of extraordinary artistic design and execution are seen everywhere. The S. S. S. has arrived in our midst, mystifying all outsiders and producing dread and distress among Freshmen. We are assured that we will be entertained and inspired this year with uplifting concerts and lectures. These, doubtless, will increase the already astounding magnitude of our astonishing intellect and aesthetic appreciation. Vale, Spiritus. Father Time, May 20, 1922. Anywhere.

Well, Father Time, I know you have heard of the mass meeting we had just after the hrc, and of the wonderful manifestation there of the Elon spirit. And from the ruins a far greater Elon will come — there will be five new buildings to take the place of the old one. Meanwhile, we sprint all over the village to classes, the exercise proving highly beneficial. We are planning to travel to Burlington for the remaining lyceum numbers and society entertainments. Yours, fast becoming a globe-trotter. The Spirit. Pear Father Time: May 22, 1923. We rush around madly these days, seeing three of the new buildings begun, enjoying the Junior-Senior reception, and attending numerous elections. One can hardly glance through " Maroon and Gold " without noticing that one of our number has been chosen leader of some organization of the college. Religious groups, athletics, student government, college publications — it ' s an imposing array to be headed by members of ' 24. Next week we receive the mantle of Seniority. Seniors! It doesn ' t seem possible. Even to think of it reduces me to a dazed condition. The Spirit. IV Hail, Father Time: October 31, 1923. I salute you from a region of confusion and unsettled conditions. With " Bill " Scott as president, we are beginning our Senior year in an unfinished Administration Building, but we hope to graduate in a completed auditorium. For your edification, I quote the following from " Maroon and Gold " : " Bride of Senior Gives Party, Mrs. A. H. Hook, Charming Hostess; Senior Girls Enjoy Watermelon Feast; Senior Girls Hold a Feast at Midnight. " Be not disturbed, though, lest we become too vivacious. Tests are wonderful as preventatives of too much gaiety, and, like the poor, they are always with us. The Spirit. January 3, 1924. ' VVe start today on the last lap of our college course. That peculiar noise you hear is merely an outburst of fresh energy in our efforts to reach the goal now in sight. Please don ' t let it alarm you. Spirit. May I, 1924. Father Time, you ask what the Class of ' 24 has contributed to Elon during our four years here. In respect to numbers, ours is one of the largest classes ever to be graduated from this college. As for quality — McAdams, Whitesell, Barker, Rudd and Hainer have been especially prominent in the athletic world. But our talents are varied, for in the religious, artistic and scholastic realms our members have been even more prominent than in athletics. Thus: " Like as the gleaming lamps we bear So stands the Class of ' 24.

Page fifty-five Propkecy, Class of Nineteen Twenty-four It was the night of the Junior-Senior recep- tion, and the merry evening had drawn well on to that hour when chaperones begin eon- spiruously to glance at their watches. The toastmaster arose and announced in solemn " Seniors, as a close to this memorable eve- ning we have procured a special feature. Be- hind yonder closed door lies — your futures. " Forty Seniors gazed Intently at the closed door as if to pierce the deep mysteries beyond, and then silently, as of its own accord, the door swung slowly back. A husli fell over the crowd. As our eyes became accustomed to the dimly- lighted room, dark tapestries embroidered with mystic oriental symbols became visible. The air was heavy with the perfume emitted by smouldering incense pots, and at a table was crouched a withered, shrunken, old Hindoo, clothed in strangely-figured flowing robes, with a turban wrapped about his head, peering into a luminous crystal globe which he held in his hands before him, and which proved to be the source of the only light in the mysterious room. The Hindoo waved his hand and beckoned with a lean finger to those without. " Go! " commanded the toastmaster, " and wit- ness that which is to be. " W. T. Scott was the flrst summoned. Guided by some unseen power, he nervously placed his hand on the globe and fearfully looked. He gave a start as he saw himself, urging, with his well-known volubility, a band of bearded and long-haired men to join the ranks of the Bolshe- viki and save .America from the grip of capi- talism. Grinding his teeth, he stamped stormily out. and the old Hindoo laughed. Calmly Louise Homewood entered. Her eyes widened with wonder at her own likeness re- fleited from the crystal ball. There, stand- ing on a college football field, a big " B " for Bryn Mawr adorning her sweater, she skillfully coached the first college girls ' football team in the world, Skepticallv, TV. W. Woody advanced, but his skepticism was forgotten in delight as he saw himself directing an immense airship, the Shen- andoah, which had been the flrst heavier-than- air craft to have successfully made the trip to the North Pole. As he saw himself guiding the huge structure easily through the air a new ambition filled his heart. With her usual laughter subdued by the awe- some surroundings, Victoria Adams advanced to the mystic crystal sphere. There she saw her- .self walking through a street in a tropical land. Brown-skinned people ran to touch her as she passed, and to kiss the precious Book she car- ried. Ora Belle Pace, rimorous and uncertain, was the next to be .summoned. She peeped in, and to her complete amazement, saw herself grace- fully poised on a diving board, while her eager pupils gathered around to watch her world- famous new dive. Delia Gotten, sedately, hut with some trepi- dation, was led to the glistening sphere. An immense audience appeared, sitting motionless and spellbound while she, with fingers of geniu.s, played herself into their hearts. An echo of the roar of applause greeted her, as with flushed cheeks she turned away. H. C. Hainer, with his regular swagger and his sophi.sticated .smile, .sauntered up and looked hastily at the h.lll. He saw himself in an im- mense hall, addressing a large, tense audience, denouncing proliibition and taxes, and soliciting -otes for his presidential campaign. Archie Hook, who had also been summoned, saw him- self worriedly consulting a notebook and won- dering whether the business of being manager for a presidential candidate was all it had been " cracked up " to be. J. Dan Barber stepped liglitly up and peered in. A scene of bustling activity met his eyes, and he saw liimself proudly surveying his new factory, and beaming with content as he read his latest advertisement: " Dan-Bar Products — Novelties for Every Occasion, " Nannie Aldridge sauntered forward next, im- pressed and awed by the mysterious surround- ings. Her eyes widened as she beheld a throng- ing crowd entering the door of the Wliite House, where a great reception was in progress. The numerous people pushed toward the presi- dent and his wife, the flrst lady of the land, whom she suddenly recognized as herself. O. C. Johnson ' s name was announced, and as lie approached he pursed up his lips in a low whistle. A chec-ked suit, a pearl gray derby and white spats greeted him as he saw himself examining with a microscope the finger prints he had just discovered on the knife found in the apartment of a murdered man. As Essie Gotten was brought to this some- what terrifying unveiling of the future, her face took on a dreamy look, which disappeared im- mediately on her inspection of the picture with- in the globe. She saw herself seated in a polished, yet subdued, mahogany office. A cub reporter from the New York Times was an- nounced, and as he entered the door she recog- nized her old classmate. M. L. Patrick. They soon settled down to business, however, and Patrick asked: " What do you, as president of the National Federation of the Woman ' s Club of America, think of the latest peace plan, the one that has just been formulated by the noted scholar, Lucy Austin? " Madge Moffitt ' s happy-go-lucky manner al- most failed her as she entered the door of the dim room. All fears passed away, however, as she saw the colorful room in which she was seated, busily engaged in her work of designing the interior decorations for the latest million dollar home that had been built on Fifth Avenue. As Marl McAdams stepped forward in his turn the expression on his face became serious. On an operating table lay a prostrate form around which was gathered a small group of white-robed surgeons and attendants. As the central figure selected an Instrument, Mark knew it to be himself. With a nonchalant air and slightly bored eyes. Opal Howell sought to know her future. What she saw was a motion picture screen upon which flickered the announcement: " Sam- uel Goldwin presents Opal Seal Howell in his new production, ' The Eternal City. ' " And as she read the title faded and a close-up of her smile was flashed upon the screen. J. T. Banks shuffled up next .and towered whimsically over the little ball. He saw him- self clad In the blue serge and gold braid of a ship ' s captain, standing erect on the bridge of a large ship as it rushed through the foaming Pa e filly-six half exi gowned one of voman itead of the love nest she urious room. A beautifully s reading the headlines of ewspapers. The words she read were: " The world-famous actress. Mme. Jennie Gunter. surpassed herself in last night ' s performance and once more endeared herself to the thousands who already knew and loved her as probably the most versatile aftress America has ever produced. " Of course. Freda Dimmick came after Jennie. She beheld a blazing fire before which sat a refined woman talking to a business-like man. He held out a paper, and the sound of his voice drifting up to Freda, carried these words: " Now, Miss Dimmick, this contract with the Cosmopolitan provides that the magazine shall get one of your short stories a month for two years at a fixed salary of twelve thousand dol- lars a year. ' Howard Gunn then hurried forward to see in the globe of the old Hindoo a blank dark- ness, unrelieved except for one little pencil of light. By this meager illumination he could see himself working deftly and skillfully at the business of opening a safe, while on the floor lay his expensive kit of tools. He still re- tained his old Sunday School superintendent ' s manner, and we suppose he had found it an asset in his somewhat precarious business. Mary Graham Lawrence, totally unimpressed by all the show of strange things, tripped for- ward next. There she was, her musical ability finding its true outlet as she vigorously and picturesquely conducted a noisy circus band at the head of long parade. W. R. Hardesty. vho suddenly appeared is she looked, almost ized into the ball. The and he had recognized kept herself faithful preache beside Mary Grahai broke into tears as h parade was moving himself as the capering circus clown the onlookers roaring at his antics. Marjorie Burton was the next to 1 and a gasp escaped her when she sa whirling around in the intricacies of a classical Greek dance, while her pupils took notes and eagerly watched in the hope of attaining a little of her perfection. G. C. Mann edged up expectantly, so eager to know his future, that he could not wait until his turn. Nothing was shown him. however, but a door, on which was inscribed: " Mann Insur- ance Agency, president ' s office. " Then the door flew open and he saw himself, fat and bald, in earnest conversation with Henry Ford. Myrtle Somers " name was pronounced and she walked up to the Hindoo somewhat sus- piciously. Upon looking into the sphere, she saw that she was seated in a vast and shadowy shop gazing lovingly around at her unrivaled collection of rare antiques. Ae C. V. Hook stepped into the circle of light around the crystal sphere, he saw the scene change abruptly. To him it reflected the interior of the Stock Exchange on Wall Street. and it was with a distinct shock that he saw himself, sleek and well cjad, occupying a prom- lent place in A faint hu it. lUng filled the rooi ing forward, built but beautifully- shaped rar ping the wheel with firm hands. faltering eyes were fixed on afphalt as it rapidly disappeai hood of the roaring car. from the magic ball. Rudd entered. Leap- self seated in a low- r. grlp- ■•Quick. Alice, " he called, " come and see what your future is! " Alice Barrett, smiling quiz- zically. leaned over the picture before her. She saw herself in a laboratory bending over a test tube examining its contents with minute care. Then, jumping up with an impatient movement which really denoted success, she called: " At last I ' ve discovered the elements of that mix- ture. Harpers ' Hash, which is served in my old Alma Mater. " Jesse Barker strode swiftly forward to the ever-i-hanging ball to see the sun blazing down on a baseball diamond. Excited crowds filled the grandstands. A great placard caught Jesse ' s eye; " Final game of the World Series. " Just then he saw himself stride up to the pitcher ' s box, and, with his characteristic delivery, heave the ball squarely over the plate. Disinterestedly, Ethel Hill sauntered forward and looked. A jungle appeared, its dense and impenetrable growth colored by the flaming yet delicate beauty of numberless rare orchids. As she examined one of the blossoms the joy of her face showed her love for the flowers, as well as a natural pride in the knowledge that here lay both fame and fortune. The old familiar brickyard at Elon appeared before the startled eyes of John Whitesell, and. surveying the now greatly enlarged plant with its up-to-date machinery, he realized that at last his cherished formula for imperishable brick was a success. He visioned riches for himself, and exclaimed: " I think I ' ll give a new brick building to Elonl " Mabel Cheek came forward rather uneasily, but as her eyes caught a glimpse of her own figure superintending the selling and exhibiting of the latest Paris frocks in her large salon her uneasiness vanished and she almost skipped as she left the room. Alice Weber advanced next, rather impatient- ly, to see herself heading a barid of tattered and ragged revolutionists through a village in South America. As she left. Alice was heard to murmur: " Well, maybe that ' s the way I can use my experience as Student Government president. " Mary Hall Stryker was summoned. She saw a small studio, expensively furnished, while on the palette before her, under the strokes of her pencil, the cartoons for the Sunday funny papers grew swiftly. G. C ' . Crutchfield, who was beginning to get anxious, was permitted to look next. He saw a rolling expanse of ripening wheat, rippling with the wind, extending as far as the eye could see, and himself with an air of ownership surveying this golden harvest. S. M. Lynam, the last to be permitted to share in these secrets of the future, peered carefully, that he might miss nothing. He .saw a man seated at a badly-littered desk, examin- ing with smug satisfaction a freshly-stitched copy of a magazine, and it dawned upon him that at Ia.st he was being allowed to Indulge his .sentimental instincts as editor-in-chief of the " Love Story " magazine. As the last of the excited crowd of Seniors left the dimly-shadowed room, a deathly still- ness developed. The mask lifted from the eyes of the withered old Hindoo. He leaned over his precious crystal ball, and, with almost fiendish leer, he cackled: " Fools! Fools! Fools! " Paffe fifty-seven Paijc fijty-cKjht PHIPSICLI, 1924 Page fifty-nine Junior Class History ( $ S HE sixth day of September, nineteen Innidred and twenty-one, was the tA ' RQ date on which the Class of ' 25 first came to the Hill — one hundred thirty- W( BQ nine strong. After the horrible days of matriculation and of our initial 0) 1 appearance on class were over, things began to go better. Then, on the first Saturday night, the faculty reception occurred. Dressed in his Sunday ' s best and with a broad grin, the new student formally met his fellow students. The most interesting events of the evening were the punch and the " socializing. " Soon our class became so popular that the Sophomores were planning to give us another reception, which was even more cordial and intimate than the one given by the faculty. The form of the entertainment is left to the imagination of the reader. On November first the class was organized, John Smith being elected president. Soon came the class basketball games, and with them the spirit that has characterized the Class of ' 25 ever since it has been on the Hill. Our class has indeed been successful in all college activities. The winning of the Freshman-Sophomore debate was the most important event in our Freshman year, for it broke one of the long established traditions of Elon ; namely, that the Freshmen were not capable of winning in a debate with Sophomores. With Thomas Hanner as leader in ' 23, our class continued on its successful way, welcoming the Freshmen royally. The loss of a number of our members made us more loyal to each other, to the faculty, and to the student body than ever before. This loyalty was proved, when, on January the eighteenth, the Administration Building was burned. Our hearts were saddened, but our hopes were revived when classes were continued in improvised quarters. With the beginning of four new buildings, the students realized that " It ' s an ill wind that blows no good. " When the class reassembled in the fall of ' 23 it found Alamance Hall, the new Administration Building, ready for classes, and all other buildings progressing rapidly. Several of our old members, who had not been with us during our Sophomore year, were heartily welcomed on their return. Thus the year opened with bright prospects for the Juniors, who, upholding the motto, " Onward, " are progressing swiftly on our college career. Page sixty PHIPSICLI, 1924 J unior CI ass ' oem Onward through these venturous years, As new mysteries to us daily unfold, Braving our tasks with diminishing fears, Wearing with honor the brown and the gold.

After we had paid our radiator fees t ::: -= and bought a full supph ' of shower bath ticicets, we settled down to work — at least tliat is what we were supposed to have done. Certainly that is what the historian must say. We were very meeic and sidimissive in almost all things as a result of a few exclusive party calls from the Sophomores. And after having endured the manifest displeasure of the " Buck Three Club, " we fervently wished that we had never left our happy homes. With Professor Powell as adviser, we met in the old Administration Building November i and formally organized our class. We chose Lemuel Harrell as president and adopted for our motto " We can; we will. " ( )ur basketball team won the interclass championship and our forensic artists carried off first honors in the Freshman-Sophomore debate. How we made those Sophomores frown at that triumphant ' 26 on the tank ! As Freshmen we were absolutely sure that we knew it all. But alas! we must admit that our knowledge was not satisfactory on examination. As a result, our number decreased to sixty-three. Under the leadership of Chapman White, however, we still hold to our motto and expect to tower above the crowd in May of ' 26.

Pat e sfvenly-eighl Page set ' oitynine Freskman Class History N the fall of 1923 we, a band of one hundred and six adventurous young- sters, made our arrival as students at Elon College. We first applied our bewildered brains to the process of matricidation, and after we had attended a few classes we began to know the faculty and each other. Soon that dreadful " lost " feeling began to subside, and had almost liisappeared by the time we were subjected to the careful attention of the Sophomores. And then on November first we organized, electing Howard Richardson president. In football we were brought into the limelight by Richardson. In the class basketball series our team won the championship. Hence, the Freshmen expected to be represented in ever) ' line of sports. With such an auspicious beginning wc feel assured that our class has the manhood and womanhood required for success. For — " We live in deeds, nut ears; In thouvjhts, not lireaths; In feelings, not figures on the dial. We should count time by heart throbs — He lives most «ho thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best. " resnma n Clc Po em We folk left home for work And four years of it, too, We dare not slack or shirk Or we shall fail — ' tis true, The structure that we frame Will take much thought and care. We strive to earn a name That will be just and fair. ' Tis not fur fame and praise We build this structure grand. But what we ' re going to raise We surely want to stand. " Excelsior " is our m ark. And with this goal for all. Each one will do his part, And the building cannot fall. With the foundation now We start in twenty-three, Though no one knows just how Each piece and brick should be. We want this strong and good, So while our walls are low We pass things as we should, Although the work seems slow. Now during twenty-four The foundation is complete. We find we need a floor, So we dare not take a seat. We ' ll stay right on the job Until in twenty-five It dawns upon us all That toward a wall we strive. The walls are quickly built. And twenty-six is gone ; We have just one year left To put the good roof on. This year, not least, but last. Most honored of them all. We look not on the past, But heed the future ' s call.

Cannon As graduate manager of athletics at Elon, Mr. Camion lias meant much. His shrewd business sense and strong personality, linked with his past e.xperience in athletics, has made it po.ssible for him to contribute much to the success of athletics for the two years in which he has been one of the leaders in this part of college life. AVe are grieved to learn that he has offered his resignation, but since he thinks he has not time, we are only glad to have had his willing sei vices for this short time. Coacli Frank B. Corboy Mr. F. B. Corboy has, in the past four ears, brought Elon to the front in athletics by his canny ability as a coach. He has won the confidence of every student here, and has instilled a fighting spirit in the men that has won for the team the name, " Fighting Christian. " We are indebted to Coach Corboy for his s|ileiidid work, rmd we sliouKl give him our support in every way possible. Student Manager W. T. Scott When the .-Xthletic Association realized thai the help of some student was needed to assist the graduate manager, " Hill " Scott was chosen. No better choice could have been made from the student body. His winning smile and unlimited amount of energy has won many friends for the college and has contributed much to the success of the management.

Whitesell I ' ai e ninety-ei iht FOOTBALL Paijc ninety-nine Football Review HEX scliool oiiened Coach Corboy hail a very difficult task to perform in th ' j biiililing of an efficient football machine with the material at his disposal. NVhen the call sounded for candidates a number of stars of former years were missing, for eight letter men from last year ' s team iailed to return to school. Captain McAdams, Kirkland, Smith, A. Hrown, A. Hraxton, Whitesell, Thomas, Barker and Hainer were the letter men who reported. Allston, a member of the 1921 team, also returned to school. Coach worked hard and developed the best football team that has ever represented the college. The season opened at Davidson and the " Fighting Christians " surprised the entire state by holding the " Wildcats " to a score of 19 to o. Although defeated, they threw a scare into Davidson and gainied many friends by the fighting spirit shown. The second game played at Lynchburg resulted in a 3 to o victory for us. It was a close game and full of thrills. After many repeated attempts to score, " Tin " Richardson dropped back and kicked a beautifid field goal from the 25-yard line. The entire Elon line played a strong part in this victor ' , for it held like a stone wall. We next traveled to Bristol, Tennessee, and ere defeated by King ' s College, 54 to 6. The only feature in this game was the fact that Elon scored a touchdown. We were one of the two teams that were able to do .so this season. The Hampden-Sidney game was a thriller. Ve won this game, 12 to 7, hut it was only after a hard battle. The " Tigers " came here primed for victory, hut the fighting spirit displayed b ' the Maroon and (jold eleven was too much tor them. The entire team worked fine in this game. Kirkland featured by his line plunges. Emory and Henry was next defeated, 6 to o. This was a slow game, and the worst one we had all year. We went into this gam-, feeling as though we could win easily, and we took it for granted that we would not ha e to overexert ourselves. Trinity next defeated us, 39 to O, in the mystery game of the year. We outpla ed them, scored more first downs than they, but we were hopelessly outlucked. It seemed that every time there was a fumble a Trinity man would reco er it in an open field and race for a touchdown. Guilford vas defeated in the next game, in Cireensboro, 7 to o. This was a real good game, and it was a case of two small colleges with a world of fighting spirit pitted against each other. It was the cleanest game we played during the year. The banner game of the season was the last game played. Wake Forest came here confident of an easy victory. Every sportswriter in the state had it doped out that Elon would be badly mistreated. Wake Forest just barely won by the score of 9 to 6. It was the most stubbornly fought game an Elon team has ever played. The entire Elon team played together as a unit, and was by far the best game all season. Wake Forest was picked as the .second best team in the state, and the fact that Elon held them to such a low score speaks well of the ability of Coach Corboy. Par;r nnr hunJrrJ PHIPSICLI, 1924 J. M. McAdams, Captain -Mark, a a defensive fullhack, is rated as one ot the best in the state. His deadly tackling was a feature of every game Elon played. Mark knows how to tackle, and has plenty of nerve to do it. His line plunging proved that when he is called upon to carry the ball, he always gained the necessary yardage. Mark doesn ' t know what the word " |iiit " means. He is a fighter from the word go. He has another year ot football to play, and we are hoping he returns to school to take postgraduate work.

We look for him to lead his team on the field next year with the same spirit as he has alwavs shown. He will make an ideal captain, and one who ought to bring Elon ' s first football championship here. I). L. 11 ARRHLL, Jr., " f EM.

He leaves behind him a record that is hard to s urpass. His name will go down in the history of F.lon athletics as one doing a large part in laviiig a foundation for cleaner and better sports. He is expected to return next year and assist Coach Corboy in building a stronger team. J. R.

As to hitting the line and running the ends, he could not be surpassed. We are sorry you have but one more year on the gridiron, but we feel that it has great things in store for you. Just continue the good work you have been doing. W. C. Eldkr, " Ci.iit-, " En l Elder came into the limelight in the Trinity game.

Fix, Marlette, Jones, and Perry, letter nun from l : last year, were lost to the team. A. Browne, R. IJrowne and McAdams were the regulars, and Barker, substitute, who remained as a nucleus, aroiuid which to build a team. The early season games showed that the new material could not be favorably compared with that lost. After losing to Newberry anil Guilford, the team came back strong and won five games in a row before tasting defeat. The competition this year was much stronger, due to the other teams showing great improvement over last season. This fact, along with others mentioned above, were reasons that Elon was forced to accept defeat in a number of games. In out-of-state games Elon was more successful. V. P. I., Emory and Henry, and Stetson University were defeated. William and Mary and Newberry won from the team. Considerable improvement was shown during the latter part of the season, when Guilford, Wake I ' orest and Trinity were met. These teams were all favored to win by large scores, but the Maroon and (rold qiu ' nt held them to close scores. All things considered, the team this year was a success. Capt. Robert Browne led his te.am in scoring, and proved to be a leader well liked by his teammates. Hill, a Freshman, showed much promise, and lii ; ra|iid development stamps him as a coming star in the future. McAdams antl Barker will he lost through graduation. Mark has |ilayed four years and [esc three on the Maroon and (lold cpiint. Paijf our huihiri ' d fourteen Page one hundred fifteen Baseball Review, 1923 HE 1923 baseball team, although not up to the standard, was not bad in many respects. The fact that the team defeated strong opponents in the last two games shows that it was not easily conquered. Three of these six letter men were pitchers. The letter men from the 1922 team who reported for training were: Captain Underwood, Perry, Marlette, Barker, Fogleman and Brown. The team was largely made up of new men, and it was late in the season before they were in smooth running condition. Our season opened at Vaice Forest on March 30. The Elonites played a very good " game in the field, but they were unable to hit the Wake Forest pitcher, and the game was lost, 3 to I. The following day Elon crossed bats with North Carolina State at Raleigh. The game was played in weather more suitable for football, and the Techs took the big end of a slugging feast by an 8 to 6 count. On Easter Monday the students went to (ireensboro and saw their team defeated, 7 to 4, by the Ciuilford boys. The score was tied until the ninth inning, then the Quakers rallied and added three runs to their score. After playing the Charlotte Hornets on April 3, the team continued their trip into South Carolina and (ieorgia. The game with Wofiford was rained out, and on April 5 Elon was defetated by Piedmont, 6 to 3. Two games were played with North Georgia Agricultural College on April 6 and 7. The Maroon and Gold team played well and succeeded in winning both games by a close score. On April 2, Elon played North Carolina State on the home field and lost to them, 8 to 3. The next day Vake Forest gave them a second licking by a 4 to i score. Guilford came to Elon April 17 and the team was hoping to reap revenge, but a run in the ninth inning smashed their hopes of shaking the " jinx. " Another game had gone " blooie. " Although still playing true to form, Lynchburg defeated Maroon and Gold in the ninth inning after being held scoreless until this point. The team was still a victim of the " jinx, " which had been following them all seasoti, when they made a trip to Lenoir and Davidson on April 20 and 21. In the game with Trinity on April 24 the Elon team made more errors than hits and runs together. This game was a decided ictory for Trinity. When Lenoir invaded our territory, April 27, all previous " dope " was upset, and they were handed a 4 to 3 defeat. The most thrilling game played on the home ground was with Davidson on May 3. The score stood i and 1 until the eighth inning, when Elon pushed over the winning run. The team should not be judged entirely by the number of games won and lost, for many of the games were lost by a very small score. It was the inability of the team to hit when hits meant runs that pushed Elon off as a winner. Those men winning letters or adding stars were as follows: Captain Underwood, Perry, Marlette, Barker, Fogleman, Brown, J. Underwood, Gilliam, Lituiiey, Hooks, Braxton and Patton.

About thirty men reported on Comer Field for prac- tice and among this nuinlicr were only six letter men of last season. It is hard trt say what our coming season will be under the existing circumstances. Captain Barker, a four-year man on the team, and one of the best pitchers in the state, will lead the team, and we are sure e will find him a deserving leader. Captain Barker, R. Browne, and t nderwood are the letter men of last season who will likely constitute the pitching staff, while Sides and Rndriquez are working behind the bat. Lindley and Gilliam, one-year men, are looking good in the infield, and Paul Braxton, another letter man of last season, is looking good in the outfield. . ' Xmnng the new men and those who have not made their letter are A. Brown and Crumpton in the infield and A. Braxton and Kirkland in the outfield. All of these are showing real base- ball ability. -Mlston, who was a member of the ' 22 team, has not been able to report for practice yet, due to an in- jury received in playing football, but we expect hi?n to re- port soon. Prospects are not as brilliant as we would like for them to be, but we feel sure we are going to have a team that will honor the college and prove a success. Coach Corboy is working the team hard and we can always depend on him for a good club. Paffe one liundifd e ' ujiilcen PHIPSICLI, 1924 Baseball ScKeJule, 1924 March 27 — Trinity at Durham.

We had a midnight feast last night. This is not unusual, however, for we ha e them ever - night. Since it is necessary to eat much each night now while studying for exams. I think I will need a few dollars. No feast has cost me more than $5.00. Vou can figure the amount needed in this way: We only have a week more now. The buildings are not heated, and we almost freeze. I have a terrible cold. Mumsey told me last night that she feared 1 was going to have pneumonia. It has rained every day now for two weeks. I don ' t have a raincoat or rubbers, and I lost my umbrella yesterday. I haven ' t been on class since it started raining, because in college we never like to borrow anything. I am campused and probated until commencement, just for dancing with a bo . I don ' t see why I should be campused for so long, but after a meeting of the faculty I got a letter saying that they would send be home, but they needed the money that I was giving the college, so would keep me here even during the Christmas holidays, but that I must spend the holidays with Miss Lizzie and Dr. Bill. I don ' t see why people can ' t dance here without being sent before the faculty. I still like Elon fine. Dean Savage is very careful to see that I stay in good company. When I go down town I am chaperoned b : Iumsey and .Miss Morrow. Don ' t fear, I can ' t possibly go wrong. Please .send me money right away. I will draw checks on Daddy until you do. Just got my examination grades. I ' ve failed on everything so far, but be an optimist. I ha e a lifetime to pass off those subjects. Your dutiful daughter, P. S.: Oh!

Harper, Litt.D. A volume that we predict will he herded with the classics. On a subject that other authors have avoided, Dr. Harper wades unflinch- ingly into the deep and chilly waters of philosophy and diplomacy. He takes the at- titude that heart balm will allay the aches of humanity; that a compliment will do more good and be more far-reachint; than a blow, dealt in justice; that tact vill tack you to any cause. Chapter VHI sets forth the theme of the book. Here he reasons clearly that the time you ought to be quiet is the very time you should say something. But what? Here genius mounts the saddle. Keeping quiet gives con- sent; therefore, something should be said. He clutches courageously the left horn of the dilemma and avows that this is the time to turn on all the faucets of soothing syrup and inundate the situation with the oils of flat- tery that calm the waves of turbulence and heal the deepest wounds and cause the music of the spheres to be all gummed up. Truly, this is one of the books of the vear. Space does not allow other quotations, but we commend " Sarcastic Sally, " " tiirls, Who Made That Noise? " " The Brickbat in the Morris Chair " and " Love Is Good for What? " to the reader. " Little Red Riding Hood, " a novel by Pro- fessor Babcock, is the stellar literary effort of the decade. The old nursery tradition of the lit- tle girl in the forest has been done over and made into a novel of eminence by Professor Babcock. The old threadbare legend can hardly be traced in the swiftly moving scenes of the daint ' flapper, Florine, in her high- powered motor car — Maroon in here. Florine, after a (|uarrel with her father and another with Dr. W. A., leaves the quiet cloister of the college to ramble down the highwa ' of life. The forest scene, where a puncture leads to her meeting with r)on Scisco Fombids, a scion of the ancient Spanish house of Don Quixote, is a rare piece of dramatic narration. The adventures of the pair, including the filling station scene at Darlington, S. C, is a rare bit of romance, but we are telling the story, which is unfair and which you will find worth $i.+9. Published by Longgreen Co., New York. One volume, two illustrations, by O. H. Henderson. " Renovated Rhv.vies, " by Dean Savage is a delightful volume of nursery rhymes brought up to date and beyond. There is no better way to review this scintillating volume than to quote at random some of the con- tents: " An ape sat in an apple tree. Kiss me, Louise, my love. Took tea in a tree beside the sea ; Kiss me, Louise, my love. " " The moon is like a beggar man On the road to Plymouth town. When three-tpiarters full, he ' s ver full. Just like an evening gown. " " Baa, Baa, Big Boy, sure I ' ll snatch our wool. Yes, sir! Yes, sir! Three hands full. One for the president, one for myself. One for vour sweetheart to put upon the shelf. " " Bobby Shaftoe ' s been to see Both William A. and me; Bobby Shaftoe ' s gone Scott free. Thanks to W. A. — not me. " " Win GiRi.s Leave Home, " by O. W. John- son, is a deep study of the psychological rea- sons why damsels disintegrate family life. Professor Johnson ' s reasoning is clear and given in many " phases " and to give an insight into the masterful logic, so to speak, we give a few of Professor Johnson ' s causes " Why girls leave home " : " The house catches on fire. " " Their mother sends them to the grocery. " " They have a date. " " They need a hair net before John calls. " " They need a breath of air. " " They are invited to a party. " " They have to mail a letter. " " Dad needs a plug of tobacco. " " There is a bargain sale down town. " Etc., et cetera, etc. Professor Johnson is a deep student of human life and, knowing exactly wh the female of the species quits the home hearth, gives a profound exposition of the subject in his own charming style.

The buildings have been expanded from 2x+ to 4x4 and we are now equipped to broaden the curriculum. The new courses are purely elective — give and take. Rn.ES 1. No student is allowed to take more than two subjects unlSss under the care ot a private physician. 2. No student can pass any course unless he or she spends 24 hours a week off the campus. 3.

Pat e t ' Vjij hundred three FACTLTV LECiENDS In days of old, before friend Ford Had shaken our backs and spinal cord, We stepped right lively right and left, At least, by George, we made a heft. Eighties and nineties sa« us start. I ' d like to tell a wee bit, but We ' re got to set a gentler pace. But we remember fans and lace, Aye Cracky, Jiminy Joe, To think these youngsters call us slow! It won ' t be fair to drop a name. But who brought Possum A. to fame? Who hazed Fuller? In what year? Who knows the taste of Simmon beer? Now we deny the legend all, But to be mum is just as well. Aye Cracky, Jiminy Joe, To think these youngsters call us slow ! We took our girls and marched about, The very same that now are stout. We hitched old Dobbin to the shay. The sun doesn ' t rise before it ' s day. We knew the best pears in these parts And wouldn ' t raise a pair of hearts. We know a bit that we don ' t say, We nice old boys with hair so gray. Aye Cracky, Jiminy Joe, To think these youngsters call us slow! DoN ' ovAN, ' 17. An announcement was made at the break- fast table that the proofs of the pictures for the Annual had come. About ten o ' clock that morning Victoria ran (very abruptly) into Essie Cotten ' s room and exclaimed: " Oh, Suster! I ' ve lost the recipe for my pictures. What am I to do? " PLAYING BACK Mrs. Lawrence: " They tell me Alph is in the college football eleven? " Mrs. Browne: " Oh, yes, indeed! " Mrs. Lawrence: " Do you know what posi- tion he plays? " Mrs. Browne: " I ' m not sure, but I think he is one of the drawbacks. " PATTIE IS EVIDENTLY OLD Pattie Coghill: " Professor Babcock, is it proper to say ' yes sir? ' " Professor Babcock: " It depends. Miss Cog- hill. You should say ' yes ' to a person of your age or younger. For instance, you say ' yes ' to me, but to an older person yes sir ' is good. " Pattie Coghill: ' Then I should say ' yes sir ' to Dr. J. V. Newman? " Professor Babcock: " Yes, ma ' m. " THE TITHER Miss Berkeley: " Have you got your ath- letic ticket yet? " Miss Savage: " Yes, I ' m a tither, and I got lots of things with niy tenth. " Freda: " Gee! I ' m sore. " Mary Lee Foster: " Why, was gym too strenuous? " Freda: " No! Miss Savage sat on me. " One morning immediately after the first morning watch service of the year little Mary Lee Runge ran up to Victoria and exclaimed: " Oh, Miss Adams, the pep meeting was great! " fncle Wellons to Sarah Carter, immediately after tllee Club practice one night: " Who teaches you voice? " (Wonder what he meant.)
