UNIQUE EASTER DANCES
FEATURE JUNIOR WEEK
HANDY'S JAZZ BAND AND THE
BEST GIRLS IN THE SOUTH
With the Gorgon's Head Dance
Wednesday night as the first wave,
the big spring drive on the shrine
of Terpsiehere was begun. Under
the leadership of Arthur Ambler,
with" Jim Flicklen and Donnell
Cobb assisting, the soldiers and
soldieietts of the Battalion of
Pleasure stormed the palace of the
Dance Goddess and took her cap
tive. Handy, the composer of those
famous "Memphis Blues," was on
hand with, five other handy wield
ers of the tuneful instruments and
ably urged the dancers on toward
This was an invitation dance in
honor of the Junior Order of Gim
ghouls and was attended by girls
from all over the state and neigh
boring states. These additions to
the ranks were declared to be the
best ever and it is reported that
they shared the greater part . of
the burden in this big drive.
The gym, tastefully decorated
in pine and cedar boughs, was a
veritable sylvan glen, fit place for
nymphs to dance. Strung among
the thick branches overhead were
purple incandescent bulbs and
around the gallery every light wa?
covered with square shades bearing
the insignia of the Gorgon's Head.
Streamers of pulple were entwined

Novel Senior Stunt
Presented by Class '18
Strikingly presented, apprecia
tively received, and ever to be re
membered as one of the best Sen
ior Stunts in the history of the
University,. "The Fall of the
House of Hohenzollern" (drama
tized by the class of '18 in Gerrard
Hall Thursday night of Junior
week carried imperishable glory
with it to the grave. Such, at least,
is the concensus of opinion as ex
pressed by those most merciless
critics, the campus and the faculty.
Beginning with a scene of leave
taking on the University campus
as the boy's depart for the front,
the audience was carried rapidly
to the Imperial Palace of the Ho
henzollern family at Potsdam,
through the American trenches,
uover there," and then again back
to the final catastrophe in Pots
dam. Supported by an all-star cast
(not to mention his wife) the
Kaiser is bending all his energies
towards preparing for the great de
cisive battle impending on the next
day. An intimate glimpse of the
Emperor's private family life is
here seen, and its disturbed condi
tion is well illustrated by the "Ho
hcnzollern Blues," music especial
ly prepared for the occasion by Mr.
E. S. Lindsey. The spirit of re
volt which has been seething
throughout the kingdom then
bursts forth, the populace rise
against William II, the American
forces storm and take the Palace,
the Hohenzollern dynasty is no
C. R. Pfaff, as the Emperor,
and B. L. Meredith, impersonating
Mrs. William II, were hailed as
the star actors of the play. They
BASEBALL TEAM RETURNS
FROM HARD SOUTHERN TRIP
WINS TWO OF FIVE GAMES
PLAYED, BUT SHOW FINE
FORM AT ALL TIMES
The Carolina baseball aggrega
tion returned to the Hill Sunday
from their t Southern trip after a
week's hard playing. The me.i
were in fairly good condition, iov
sidering the fact that they had
been steadily on the "go" since
leaving the Hill the previous Sat
urday week and were playing un
der adverse (circumstances. Be
lated trains caused the team much
trouble. : In fact the last game of
the trip with Georgia could not be
staged 'because the train was five
In spite of the fact that the
team lost three out of the five
games played, loosing to Camp Se
vier, Wofford, and South Carolina
and winning the Clemson and
Guilford games, the trip was a
success in that it gave the players
the much needed training and- ex
perienced preparatory to the Vir
ginia games. Each jSlayer and the
squad as a whole showed marked
improvement during the trip.
Manager G. Holding became so
infatuated with Wofford College
that he became sick while there
and was confined to the college in
firmary for several days, being un
able to make the rest of the trip,
and returning '.to the, Hill just
ahead of the team. He says he
knows "what hard luck is."
j Holmes Ilerty, short stop, was
forced to return to the Hill after
the Guilford game because of a
"Charley Horse," and was unable

Greensboro Trip Called Off
It was a great disappointment
to the battalion when it was
learned that the big trip to Greens
boro Saturday had been called off.
Many hard practice drills pre
paratory to going to Greensboro
had been carried on.
Transportation for the battal
lion could not be gotten. In reply
to the request for a special train
the management learned at the last
minute that every available car
was needed in the transportation
of soldiers to and from northern
and southern camps. An exhibi
tion drill, however, will be given
on Emerson field Monday after
noon before the Carolina-Virginia

millan, the shade of Frederick the

scenery and the late start on ac
count of lack of electric power hur

JUNIOR ORATORICAL CONTEST
WON BY NATHAN GOODING
HODGES AND WILLIAMS REPRE
SENT DI GOODING AND
MILES, PHI SOCIETY
In the annual Junior Oratori
cal Contest, held in Gerrard Hall,
on Wednesday of Junion week the
committee consisting of Messrs.
Chase, Daggett, and L. A. Wil
liams, awarded the Carr medal to
Mr. Nathan G. Goodjing. 'The
contestants were L. II. Hodges,
Dr; Forrest Miles, Phi; R. D.
Williams, ; Di ; and K G. Good
Mr. Gooding's subject was "The
Growth of an Idea." He traced
brieny the career of Lafayette
showing how he developed in spite
of every corrupt influence that
could result from wealth and
feudalism, and the early loss of
his parents, and always remained
unsullid, true to his great ideal,
just liberty for all men. It was
this ideal that influenced him to
come to the aid of America in her
struggle for freedom. He then
snowed how a year ago America
was confronted with a similar
question. We had watched the
struggle in Europe for three years,
until the liberty and freedom of
the world was threatened with de
struction. To hold off longer would
have been cowardice. We entered,
not to thrust democracy on any
one, but to provide that no one
should be denied the right to choose

The regular baseball series be

many standpoints the contests

Both teams have been going
through rigorous training for

ting. Howze, playing at second
base, a substitute from last year's
team, is playing a stai4 game. Mo

last year's team and a good hitter.
From last year's first year
team : McCall, in right field, is
the fastest man on the team. Toy,
at first nase, is showing up well.
Petway, at short, was an outfielder
last year but has proved a good

Woolfolk and Thomas, of last
year's first year team, are infield
and outfield utility men, respec

last year's first year team. ' He
showed up very well in the game
against William and Mary, which
