"CLARENCE" SCORES A
SUCCESS AT GUILFORD
Second Play Draws Large and En
A second triumph was added to the
score of the Dramatic Council last
Saturday evening by the presenta
tion of "Clarence," the play given
for the benefit of the Men's Athletic
Association. A clever comedy of
American life artistically staged, it
won the approval of a large and en
thusiastic audience, in spite of the
long wait between the first and sec
Among the actors honors must go
to H. G. Mcßane in the title role,
to lone and Benbow Merrimon in
the parts of Cora and Bobby Wheel
er, and to Gladstone Hodgin as Mr.
Wheeler. Mr. Mcßane as the soldier
hero was the hit of the evening.
Posing in turn as mule driver, piano
tuner, father confessor to the Wheel
er household and lover, he proved
himself irresistibly master of both
comic and dramatic situations.
Miss Lowe and Mr. Merrimon as
the captivating little flapper and
the prep school youth, delighted their
audience with their utterly serious
and spontaneously natural interpreta
tion of their very amusing roles.
This is the first appearance for both
of them in important roles, and their
initial success augurs well for future
Mr. Hodgin gave a realistic inter
pretation of the tired business man,
"head of unhappy, rowing family,"
handling some intensely emotioaal
bits with much skill and feeling. He
was particularly good in the stormy
scenes in which Mr. Wheeler's irri
tability was allowed free play.
Much credit is also due Marianna
White, who portrayed charmingly the
young governess in the Wheeler
household who falls in love with

On Sunday evening immediately
after Christian Edeavcr the Y. W.

open meeting to show some pictures
of the conference grounds at Blue
Ridge. These lectures were very in
teresting and through them an in
sight was given to the real Blue
Ridge as several of our students
know it. We are hoping that this
spring a lai'ger nuber will attend the
Conference than ever before as we
realize that Blue Ridge is the place
to gain inspiration.
Although our Christian associa
tions do emphasize particularly the
moral life, we do not forget the
phyiscal. So along with the scenes
of Blue Ridge, pictures were shown
to emphasize the importance of cor
rect posture and walking. "Foot
Follies'' was give to show the struc
ture of the foot and the proper kinds
of shoes to wear.
