Downs Catawba Indians To Lead Conference
Christians Humble Catawba In “Big Game Of Year” Elon Shows Superior Blocking And Attack A superior Elon team completely demoralized the Catawba Indians on Shuford field last Friday after noon, Nov. 15, by a score of 32-0. The Christians were described by spectators as the smoothest and fastest outfit seen on the local gridiron in many seasons. A rushing Catawba offensive in the first quarter gave the deceptive appearance that the Indians would win easily. Early in the first quart er, after receiving Clark’s 70 yard punt on their own 20 yard line, Elon started a short offensive which ended when Garland re covered a fumble on Elon’s 38 yard line. Here Catawba began the first of four offensive drives which penetrated Elon’s ten yard stripe, one being halted four yards short o fthe goal. Off-tackle drives by Charlie Clark were the best ground gaining plays for the In dians. Several “spot” passes from Clark to Garland aided the ad vances. ~v^ : Early in the second quarter, after having been on the defensive thus far, Elon, by a series of fav orable punt exchanges, gradually forced Catawba deep into its own territory. From the Indians’ 40 yard line the Christians started a sustained drive which was climaxed by Abbitt’s 6 yard sprint for a touchdown. The half tnded as Pritchard intercepted a pass on his own 4 yard line. Score: Elon 6; Catawba 0. In the third quarter Elon, after receiving the kickoff, marched to Catawba’s 20 yarcf line where they were forced to give up the ball on downs. When they failed to gain, the Indians punted to midfield. There Elon started a second drive which netted a touchdown, Abbitt ' again scoring. Late in the third quarter Elon again tallied when Jonjes skirted Catawba’s left end on a 1(7 yard run. j r when the fourth quarter was —jj^.re mimites old, Jones, following dH e gain from a fake punt, scored Prche fourth touchdown for the W Christians. And late in the period Stallings, starting around his own right end, stopped short and passed 30 yards diagonally to Bradley, who was standing in the end zone, to bring Elon’s total to 32. Harris Stallings converted two of the Christians’ extra points. Elon’s offensive was featured by hard blocking and fast charging linesmen who cleared the way for the ball carriers, Newsom, Abbitt, Jones, J. Stallings, and H. Stall ings. The linesmen whose play was outstanding were Hartsell and Mastro, guards, Hauselt, left tack le, Walser, center, and Schlitter, end. In a statement after the game Coach Walker of the Christ ians said, "In my opinion Elon won on superior blocking.” For Catawba Clark and Prit chard were the outstanding ball carriers, while Kesler, Garland, Vaniewsky, and Meehan stopped many of Elon’s runs. Rocco Zam miello unfortunately was injured on the kickoff and was forced to leave the game.

V~ i. - * : PHONE PEACE (The Pioneer) * Armistice Day is past, but it seems appropriate to turn one’s thoughts to a consideration of the burning question of world peace. And the recent reading of Edmund Spenser’s Faerie Queene provides inspiration for a discussion of peace, that will of the wisp sought by ninety per cent of the people of the world but controlled by the ten per cent, who, as business czars, munitions makers, politicians, petty diplomats, extreme militarists, and dictators, exemplify in highest de gree several of the six deadly sins, counsellors of pride, described so vividly in Canto IV of Book I. Billions of dollars in profits, intrigues which increase armaments, wars waged solely to protect commerce and business interests—these speak only too well of the activities of gluttony, avarice, and envy, all of which produce wrath to unbalance the harmony of peaceful existence. They work through various agencies at present. Our star spangled American Legion and, un fortunately, widely read Hearst newspapers and Liberty magazine are attempting to fire the military zeal of the peace loving majority in this country by fomenting scares of Russia’s "Reds,” the Orient’s yellow peoples, Italy’s "blackshirts,” and America’s own problem with the colored race. ' However, rather than condemn, let us seek the best attitude to take toward war, so that the death of those to whom we bow our heads may not seem as vain as the world regards it. The essence of the situation and the root of the cure appear to me to be embodied in G. K. Chesterton’s short poem, the spirit of which seems almost treasonable as it was written while the war was on. The men that worked for England, They have their graves at home; And bees and birds of England About the cross can roam. 4 JF But they that fought for England, Following a fallen star, T ISfF Alas, alas for England, ^ They have their graves afar. And they that rule in England, :--f'' r: In stately conclave met, Alas, alas for England, € : S! They have no graves as yet. At the time of the past war the kings, presidents, admirals, generals, and diplomats talked about the flag, the honor of the nation, and the atrocities of the 1 enemy, while all the time it was 1 debts to be collected, investments ' to be secured, or colonies to be captured. “The army follows the . dollar, and the blood of the army 1 is what makes, the dollar pay.” Although many Russians did not know whom they were fighting or what it was all about, the foreign secretaries and their "bosses” could explain the reasons for the con flict. And these who ruled "have no graves as yet.” Therefore, to insure that they shall not again be blind sufferers, the people who earnestly desire peace should pledge themselves never to take part un der any circumstances in any fu ture war. A great Englishman, Arthur Ponsonby, member of par liament and formerly a cabinet minister, was probably the first to initiate such a movement. He sent such a memorial to the prime minister, signed by thousands upon thousands of persons.- H. G. Wells, who calls such concerted action “the open conspiracy,” in ] his book by that name writes: "From the outset the open con spiracy will set its face against 1 militarism. There is a plain pre sent need for the organization now, before war comes again, of an open and explicit ’.refusal to serve in any war. This putting upon record of its members’ reser-i vation of themselves from any of all of the military obligations that may be the thrust upon the country by military and diplomatic efforts,’ will be the first considerable overt; act of the open conspiracy groups.”! Surely the sacrifice o ften mil i. r . 1 .1. _ 1__ null 111C11) lllUdL Ul uitm wit wrvoi blood of the nations of the world, in the past war demands this hu mane and civilizing step. To Mars we have led men to be slaughtered just as the heifer, “her silken flanks with garlands dress ed,” in Keats’ Ode on a Grecian Urn.- The soldiers were to fight for peace and to kill for brother hood. As John H. Holmes says, "We soldiers were drafted by the nation not to die but to kill. The dying was accidental; the killing intentional.” But some men throughout the world have already died for the cause of non-resist ance under any circumstances. Some of Tolstoi’s words are: "I know that my unity with others cannot be shut off by a frontier, or a government decree. I know that all men everywhere are brothers and equals, and that my true welfare is found in my unity with the whole world.” In Germany Karl Liebknecht was imprisoned, tortured, and kill ed because he opposed the war. The grave of Jaures in the Pan theon in Paris calls to mind his assassination for his love of peace just as the war began. And Morel was in confinement in London for loving peace too well. In this country the rpartyr who died preaching this philosophy was Eu gene Debs. His memorable speech [before the bar of justice is in part: "I have been accused; of ob structiqg the war. I admit it. 1 abhor war. I would oppose it if I stood alone. For I believe that nations have been pitted against nations long enough in hate and strife.” In conclusion, a quotation from John H. Holmes’ article, “The Unknown Soldier Speaks,” "There are a hundred thousand alters in America to God and altars in American to God and his servant, Christ, but there isn’t one of them as holy in the eyes of the nation as this grave of the Unknown Soldier, .an altar to Mars and his servant, Caesar,” should make us repeat in unison the poem: Who goes there in the night, Across the storm-swept plain? We are the ghosts of a valiant war, A million murdered men. Who goes there at the dawn, Across the sun-swept plain? We are the hosts of those who swear— It shall not be again. FIRST OFFENSE "Guilty or not guilty?” asked his honor. "Not guilty, sir,” was the plea. "Have you ever been in jail?” "No, indeed,” was the righteous response.

No matter how fine the child’s heritage bacli through the ages, so much of his personality and character depends, not on his conscious training, but upon the unconscious examples set by his parents! I wish every parent might read Dr. Carrel’s book. * * * The street-length dress of metal cloth is being seen in fashionable places at the cocktail hour and for semi-formal evenings.

But 1 have arranged a handsome legacy for you in my will.” > "That’s very kind of you,” thi doctor replied. "Allow me to tak« a look at the prescription again. There is a slight alteration I would like to make in it.” ‘ ‘Readjustment ’ ’ When every youngster longed to be The holder of a high degree, This country, in its various parts, Was swamped with Bachelors of Arts. They had diplomas, colored sweat ers, And combinations of Greek letters. The banjo expertly they plied, And learned a little on the side. They were not ordinary slobs, Who looked for work, and hunted jobs. But sometimes they’d accept posi tions, Upon, of course, their own condi tions. Now there is hope that once again We will turn out some self-made men, Who, with their non-collegiate deeds, Are what the country really needs. We need more sturdy lads to toil, In lumber, real estate, and oil; So profitably that, when "dunned,” They’ll sweeten an endownment fund. —Contributed. i About 300 farm boys and girls of McDowell County have joined the six 4-H clubs organized that country recently.
