Coach Doak's fast-going aggrega tion of ball tossers were suddenly checked in mid career by the ba'efui offerings of Jupiter P uvius. Throughout one whole sad week the diamond was null and voir" and only a few melancholy pools ui wf.ter marked the spots where once Jim Newlin cavorted or Huck Ballinger pulled iut of the air Zack's drum lire bombardments. -V'3 ...:X I , . : ■WM ifv * 4m* '' ** r> A.

This will prob ably take place on Thursday, the lSt' , and there is every prospect that Guilford will win a thir'l time from the Methodists.

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. GUILFORD COLLEGE EDITION OF THE FRIEXDS MESSENGER J.

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 respect. At the Monday night dinner Miss Madge Coble served as host and Miss Ciodfelter as hostess. The guests were Miss Roberts, Miss Edwards and Profs. Balderston and Brinton. At the Tuesday night dinner the host was Miss Frances McCracken, and the hostess Miss Ellen Raiford.

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?" (Continued on fourth page) 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.
