Knot Holing By Walter Winshield Ovid says that some people have less intelligence than others. Mr. Hart responds that it’s nice to have some one to make an honest confession. Did you notic “Professor” Carter in the back corner of the stage during the Liquid-air Experiments the other day? He was quite a big shot, wasn't he? The split up of the Green-Enk case has everybody guessing. It seems to have faded. It is well known that Hogue had the class sleeping championship last year, but ho has a rival that lias him beat a mile. For proof, visit biology 20 and sec Billy Thomas at work. You’ve heard of the proverbial “Last Straw” —well this it it: Cecil Stanley is not a member of the Music Lover’s Club. The radio was blasting forth Jesse Crawford’s prettiest organ notes. Cecil said, “Duma, leave that on, it’s the best orchestra I’ve heard tonight.” Ad in Roopville Play Program: Julian Freeland Charles Tuggle- Two Cutest Boys at West Georgia. Freel intends to give the West Geor gian an ad. However, Tuggle says “We got our money’s worth in that Roopville ad.” We take great pleasure in quoting .the exact words of Mr. Roberts in a lecture: Quote, 14 And De Soto took a young Indian princess into the woods and she had to flee.” “Samuel Ad ams tore up the woods. ” We wonder how Mr. Hart will illus trate the cross section since the long stove pipe is gone from the biology lab? Talking about Mr. Hart, did you hear about his dismissing class on Monday because he thought it was Tuesday? Wonder if he is gong to turn into one of those absent-mind ed professors that we hear so much about? We wish to take time out here to cor rect a slight mistake. In our last issue we made the statement that Bill Trent is a defective in the police force. This was a typographical error. Mr. Tient is really a detective in the police farce. We had something on Mr. \\ at son and Miss Carpenter but there are so many angles to it that we leave it to your observation. Now that she is through with Enk, it seems that Mary wants to make Tuggle her jnexit ( victim. “fipuff” will have something to say about that - Watch out Mary. Rosy Spence no longer dreads the comments of this column. (Editor’s note). Professor Strozier in French class: “In copying the type of literature written by Rabelais for an Englis i theme, you might shock the instructor —if possible.” “Crosby” Morris failed in a valiant attempt to show his Alma Mater how to play basketball. He cculdn t 1 the roof Friday night. What’s wrong with a fellow when he can’t tell when he’s in love? The last straw came when Simonton thought North Peachtree was the v\a to Newnan. Mr. Watson is known to have in quired of a town student as to apa ments that were to rent in town. Cecil Stanley and Lucille Portwood. reserved the front row in t e arro for “Gift of Gab.” VOLUME TWO Student Elections Held January loth West Ga. Braves Begin Inter-Collegiate Games; Lose By Close Score The West Georgia Braves opened the 1935 season by dropping two hard -fought battles to North Georgia College and Reinhardt College. The Braves lost the first game to North Georgia 35-31 and the second game to Rein hardt 27-21. The Braves lacked team work in both games and they clearly showed a lack of practice. Despite those faults they also showed some real ability and especially Jud Hearn, Red Martin, and Sam Fields. With more practice Mr. Braswell should be able to mould no bad team around these boys. The first game with North Georgia was especially hard fought "with just one team and then the other leading. The Braves led by Judson Bearn trail ed by only one point at the end of the first half. The score being 14-13. But in the second half the lack of practice and the lack of conditioning began to show up on the West Georgia boys. They had to call frequent times outs because the boys were completely given out. This ended more than one W. G. C. rally. Mr. Braswell was forced to make frequent substitutions. The same team never being able to play together for any reasonable length of time. Judson Hearn, Chick Almon, and. Red Martin starred in this game with Captain Heam being outstanding. He was high point man with 9 points and lie also played a good defensive game. In their second game of the season the Braves met a Reinhardt team that was much improved over the 1934 team. The first quarter of this game ,vao u beautiful thing to sec wMh two. clean, hainl fighting, well-matched teams working for a victory. Rein hardt scored first with a field goal but the Braves quickly tied the score at 2 all. Reinhardt went into the lead (Continued on Sports Page) MU ZETA!

The club has now over forty mem bers, all sophomores, and they are tak ing in as many freshmen that can qualify as possible in order to per petuate it. An enjoyable evening was spent by all the members and faculty advisors.

The two clubs gave the same pro gram at the college auditorium on Sun day, December Kith. Avery large crowd was present and seemed to have enjoyed it very much. The program that was rendered by the two clubs was as follows: O Holy Night (Cant ique do Noel) Adams. —Chorus. CAROLS . There’s a Song in the Air —Harring- ton. J Know, O Virgin Mary —Old French Silent Night—German. THE WOMEN’S GLEE CLUB What Child is This?—l6th Century. Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming— Praetorius.

The two Glee Clubs of West Georgia College have been doing some very ex cellent work under the direction of Miss Dorothy St. Clair and Mr. Gordon Watson. Another reason for the suc cess of the two clubs is probably the fine co-operation of each student in the presentations of the program. The hearty support of the people of Car rollton and Genola at these present ations must also be taken into consider ation as a factor in the success of the Clubs. Mr. Ingram said that the West Georgia College Glee Clubs mean as much to Carrollton as the Emory Glee Club means to Atlanta, and we want to make its presentations an an nual affair. Now both Clubs are working on their regular program. The men will make a tour in February to many cities in the northwestern and southern parts of Georgia. We wish much suecess to the West Georgia Glee Clubs of ’34 and ’35. JANUARY 22, 1935 Kelley, Ford, Goodroe, Are Elected by Freshmen; Hearn Soph. Sec.-Treas. I ________ Student elections held the center of interest during the first week of the winter quarter. Freshman class offi cers, a sophomore officer and West Georgian editors were concerned in this election held January 10th. William Kelley, a popular and hard working candidate for the freshman elass presidency, was elected after a speedy campaign with Virgil Barrett, Jack Stone and Cecil Stanley. We freshmen are proud to have a man like Kelley as a class leader, since his general conduct, and his participation in activities during the past show that he has the ability and willingness to perform the executive duties to out satisfaction. Joe Ford won in tho race for the vice presidency. He has proved him self worthy and likable in the past. We arc confident that lie will give Kelley his greatest support, and that lie will satisfactorily perform the other duties of the office. His opponents were Mayo Royal and Douglas Bishop. For secretary and treasurer, Fran ces Gocdroe was elected. Considering her ability and experience in secreta rial matters we feel sure that she is competent to fill the office. Other candidates in the race were Preston Wright and Forrest Ingram. Judson llearn was elected secretary and treasurer of the Sophomore class by defeating Ovid Davis in a close race. Hearn has always been a leader in student activities and is admired by every student. Hearn’s popularity and good reputation make him a most competent office holder. W. G. C.
