Coach Doak's fast-going aggrega

checked in mid career by the ba'efui
offerings of Jupiter P uvius.

The A. & E. game in Greensboro

GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., APRIL 17, 1918
"LA LETTRE PERDUE"
Given Under the Auspices of the
French Department for the Benefit
of the French Orphans.
"La Lettre Perdue" (The Lost
Letter) a play in two acts will be
given in Memorial Hall Thursday
evening, April 25, at 8 o'clock. This
play is an adaptation of one of the
best modern French plays with a
satire on French society ae a setting
and the difficulties of four young
people arising from the "lost letter"
to furnish the action. The scene is
laid at the castle of Saint Germain,
where the Countess of Ceran and her
coterie of friends enjoy "being liter
ary" and taking part in would-be
learned discussions. However there
is the duchess who is always ready
to bring them speedily to an end.
There is Monsieur Bellac adored by
all the ladies because of his gift of
flattery. There is Lucy, an English
visitor, very wealthy and with ideas
all her own as to what she is willing
to do since she is not French. There
are Monsieur and Madame Paul Ray
mond. The former with a propensi
ty for going to sleep at exactly the
wrong minute as far as his political
ambitions are concerned. Next
comes Roger, the countess' son, and
last but not least Suzanne, the duch
ess' protege, who is just eighteen and
who finds it most amusing to be
grown up though she is always doing
something which in the eyes of the
countess and her coterie, is decided
ly beyond the pale. To all these peo
ple the letter unsigned suggesting a
rendezvous in the conservatory at 10
o'clock brings consternation and
much plotting and counter plotting.
Miss Papworth has very kindly
consented to furnish music between
acts and to take charge of the sing
ing of the Marseillaise, which will
conclude the program.
A synopsis of the play will be
printed in the next issue of the Guil
fordian as well as in the programs
so that those not familiar with
French may readily follow the play.
The play will be given for the ben
efit of the French orphans. Admis
sion 15 cents.

ILLUMINATION AT THE SCIENCE
Prof. Balderston threw some light
on the illumination problem at the
last meeting of the Science Club. He
first took up the history of artificial
lighting and then discussed several
practical problems such as the elimi
nation of glare, the efficiency of vari
ous forms of the electric light, etc.
Two Remarkable Dinners Demon-
strate Efficiency of Department.
On Monday and Tuesday evenings
of last week two dinners were served
by the two sections of the cookery
class respectively. These dinners
were served not only to demonstrate
the finer forms of the culinary art
but also to give the classes practice
in the proper methods of table serv
ice. The guests were ecstatic in
their praises and most emphatically
asserted that never had they eaten
a dinner so exquisitely cooked or so
faultlessly served. The repast be
gan with a delicious fruit cocktail.
This was followed by "chicken a la
Maryland," to which dish the skill
ful cooks had managed to impart a
rare and delectable flavor.
The chicken was accompanied by
mashed potatoes of delicate smooth
ness and green peas delightfully
oreaimed. Tiny biscuits appeared
whose excellent quality was attested
by the eagerness with which they
were eaten. The salad which came
next was successfully constructed ac
cording to all that is best both artis
tically and gastronomically. The
final course consisted of a Charlotte
Russe so fine and dainty in its tex
ture and flavor that it formed a fit
ting climax to all before. The angel
cake which came too lived up to its
name and was most angelic in every
At the Monday night dinner Miss

Y. W. C. A. SUBJECT:
OIKLb IN KHAKI"
The meeting 011 Thursday evening
was opened by a Scripture leading
and prayer by Hattie Rayle., Then
Una Seal took charge of tbe meet
ing. "Of course every one realizes,"
said Miss Seal, "that a new and in
teresting problem is staring every
one in the face. Are we going to be
able to take our part of the work
that will fall on us? What will the
war demand of women? They have
always done their part .n all previ
ous wars, but this one is going to
demand more than ever before.
They are being called from every
where to take the place of the men
who have gone 10 the front. The
colleges are turning out thousands
of young women well trained for
valuable lines of work. The de
mands will be increased month by
month as the war goes on. What
are we doing to prepare ourselves
for the things we will nave to do.
We can apply ourselves to the great
est possible extent in all available
lines, and do dour work well."
Miss Seal then closed her remarks
by asking some questions. She said,
"Are you living as nobly in little
things as your brother in the
trenches? Do you eat corn'bread as
cheerfully as he warms up his meals
in a tin can over a little Are? Are
you living as deeply as he—or has
his religious experience gone beyond
the place where you can help him?
Are you ahead or in the rear?"

FITZJULERALD LEADS Y. M. C. A.
On last Thursday evening the Y.
M. C. A. held a very interesting
meeting. The leader, Paul V. Fitz
gerald, spoke first of the recent Y.
M. C. A. conference held at Blue
Ridge for the benefit of the presi
dents-elect of the Associations in
North and South Caroliua. Fitzger
ald referred to the War Work School
at Blue Ridge, where men from vari
ous professions are training for Y.
M. C. A. work in the army camps
here and in Europe.
The speaker then emphasized the
fact that if we would DC successful
in business life, or in every day life,
we must be willing to go the second
mile as Christ commanded in the
Sermon on the Mount. When we
consider the conditions into whioh
Jesus came and conditions under
which people were struggling, it is
r.o wonder that so many heard him
gladly ana followed him. Peter was
afraid to go the second mile with
Christ. His faith was not such tnat
he -was willing to commit himself ab
solutely to Jesus and trust him. We
are often afraid to go the second
mile with Christ. If we would pos
sess the spirit of .Christ, if we would
be of service to our fellowmen, if
we would lift ourselves above the
common type of man and count for
more than an ordinary person, we
must be willing to brave the unfav
orable conditions that may confront
us and go more than out mile.
us strive to be second-,mile-men.
