AA-e are delighted with our Southern audiences.” Seated in the dining room of the O. Henry, Aliss Nord graciously answered the many questions put to her, and seemed most anxious to please these representatives of the high school part of her audience. She told of her education at Sullins College, and of her musical training. She entered grand opera when she was only 20 years old. xV book of clippings told of her many successes, and contained many things of interest. “I think the music in ‘The Student Prince’ is lovely, and I believe we could have tun two nights here,” said Miss Sylvia, the comedienne.

EXCITEMENT RAMPANT AMONG NEW REPORTERS Miss Nord, Leading Lady, and Miss Sylvia, Comedienne, Talk About Their Work Get Interview With Members of “Stu dent Prince” Cast—High Life Rep resentatives Are “Thrilled” ACTRESS INVITES THEM TO DINE Supper of Seven Colors “And wain’t you have dinner with us?” Gee, was this really so? AAbis the leading lady of “Th e Student I’rince” honestly asking twm High Life reporters to dinner? Gracious! It wais an honor to be allowed an interview^ and to be invited to dine was to» much. The reporters couldn’t think of such an ordinary thing as food at such an exciting time; so the invitation was declined. Aliss Helen Nord and Aliss Sylvie DeFrankle were cordial, friendly peo ple, who seemed as anxious to please tw'o young, but aspiring, reporters as if they w’ere really important. And yMdn’t it seem wonderful to be here at the O. H.'iTiLV interviewdng them! Just think, they A^re real actresses, the height of everydream. “Remember wheiT wt. ^^sed to inter view people when w^e .. ■” in hi^^li school?” No, it couldn’t hi j^,>_,osible that these delightful beings had really been through the toils of high school. “Don’t you love their southern drawd?” And this w-as the star in “The Student I’rince” speaking of two hum ble reporters! It wms all more than the twm could really take in. They left after these few" heavenly minutes wfith hearts a-fiutter. “They really are human, and weren’t they just lovely?” they exclaimed ex citedly as they left the realms of ac tresses and turned reluctantly home ward. During the AA'orld Series, members of the Boys’ Athletic Association of G. H. S. handled the selling of the reserve seats in front of the Daily News build- ing. Half of the net receipts wms turned over to the Athletic Associa tion. Patched Breeches The story is told of a North Carolina mountaineer who always w’ore patched breeches'—patched at the knees find patched in the seat. Economy is not the explanation that his neighbors gave for the condition of his trousers. It wuis generally conceded that the knees w"ere worn threadbare by fervent spirits of prayer, wdiile the seat was entirely wmrn awaiy by much back-sliding from the heights of religious ecstacy attained during such periods. Alany students are like this moun taineer. Figuratively if not literally, their trousers are patched before and behind.—-The Gmlfordhin, Guilford Col lege, N. C. Ixittle Boy—Oh, Alother, guess what!

Into Historic Crevices Alany of us believe that Betsy Ross made the first American flag in 1776, but the AA"ar Department has verified the statement that the American Idag w"aved for the first time over Fort Stan- wix, afterward named Schuyler. The fort w’as built in 1757 on the Alohawdc River near the present city of Rome, New’ York. The w’hite stripes were cut from am munition shirts, the blue from a cam- ulet cloak taken from the enemy at Piekskill, w’hile the red stripes were pieces of stuff obtained from the men at the garrison. These various ma terials sew’ed together resulted in the original American flag.—The South erner, Alinneapolis, Alinn.
