Playing at Times Close. Min.-Mary
Shows Well Balanced Team.
The class gjirncs played this week in
creased in interest because of the near
ness of the close of the series and the
winner still in doubt. The surprise of
the week was the come-back of the
Freslinian team whicli has held the bot
tom position for the entire series. They
defeated the Sophomore ajid Junior
teams. The other game of the week
waa tlie tilt between the Sophomores
3D1 Seniors, witli the former winning.
There are only two more games to be
played, the Freshman-Senior game to
day and the Junicr-Sophomore game
Friday. The Juniors are leading by one
game. However, if the Seniors win
from the Freslimen, and the Sophomores
•win over the Juniors the three upper
classes would be tied.
BASEeALL SGHEDOLE IS
Sixteen Games To Be Played. More
Pending. Much New Material.
This was the worst drubbing handed
the Sophs during the series. They
were beaten by a score of 20 to 10. The
^anie was slow and showed the lack of
speed that has been characteristic of
the Soph team throughout the scries.
There were no outstanding players for
the Sophomores. Woodie was high
scorer with 2 field goals. Brinkley
scored most points for the Freshmen
with 2 field goals and 4 fouls. Caddell
was a close second with 3 field goals.

Tlie William and Mary quint proved
superior to the Elon aggregation here
Friday night and won 27 to 16.
In all departments the visitors had it
on the Christians, but especially in their
passing system. The home team took
the lead in the early part of the fray
before the Virginians could hit their
stride, but after they became accus
tomed to the court a rally put theru
aliead and the half ended with William
and Mary doubling the score, eighteen
During the last frame the Christians
tightened up and allowed the visitors
a majority of only two points for the '
half. Marshall and J. Todd showed up
best for the visitors, and Huey for the

Each team seemed afraid to move in
this game until near the close of the
first half. The Freshmen held the lead
practically all the time but the Jiiniors
pushed them close. It looked at one
time as if a desperate rally by the
Juniors near the close o'f the game
wonld put them ahead. 'However, the
whistle defeated them and the under
class had a two point lead in a score of

WAS A GREAT SOCCESS
The Presentation of “The Taming of
the Shrew’’ Enjoyed by
On last Tluirsday jiiglil in the Whit
ley Auditorium, Mr. and Mrs. Pierre
Pelletier presented to a very large and
appreciative audience Shakespeare’s
famous comedy, “The Taming of the
Shrew.” This was the third of the
lyceum attractions being offered here
under the auspices of the Music Lovers’
Chib. Tliis one proved to' bo of a high
standard and a success.
Many came, probably not knowing
the nature of a Shakespearan play and
Ii^ not know what to expect, but after
the first few lines had been said every
one was at his ease. The interest of
fhe audience with the splendid acting
of the east made it enjoyable to all.
'I'he acting of Mr. Pelletier, who had
the part of “Petrutio,” and Mrs. Pel
letier, who took the part of “Kather-
ioe, the Shrew,” were especially good,
The comical part of the play was in
deed good. Mr. Shrade and Mr. Con-
ning proved tc be excellent fun makers
^l»le on the stage.
On Monday evening, February 16,
the Psykaleon Society, at its regular
session, presented a very interesting
program. Those on program were:
Life of Editti Wharton—Susie Elder.
Reading—“Aunt Sue”^Mary Price.
This was a very interesting selection,
and well given.
Humorous Sketches—Hattie !Mae Pitt
The jokes were well chosen anrl very
Current Events—Thyrn Wright. Miss
Wright gave some very good informa
tion about recent happenings.
Tlie program as a whole was very
good. The judges commended Misses

MAE OLIVER'S FATHER
DIED SUNDAY MORNING
The Psiphelian program for last Wed
nesday evening was as follows:
Original Story—“T Love You Still”
Essay—Mary Addie White.
Current Events—Annie Prichett.
Life of Harold Bell Wright—Bess’e
Synopsis of “The Heart of the
Hills”—Ida Louis Capps.
The program was very interesting
and nil the members present enjoyed it.
As the best three on program the judges
decided in favor of Misses Martin, Mc
Adams and Conner.
The religious sen’ices Sunday evening
were under the auspices O'f the Y. W.
C. A., the topic being “Big Enough!”
“0 Worship the King” was used as
the opening hymn, after which Misi
Eosebud Kimball read the twelfth
chapter of Romans, and Miss Ruby
Rowland led in a short prayer.
Miss Ola King Cowing had as her
topic, “Big Enough to Be a Leader.”
“Not everybody can be a leader,” Miss
Cowing said. “Leaders get much crili
cism, and not all is constructive, either.
To be a good leader one must have vis
ions. Be confident and self-reliant.”
“Big Enough to Pay the Cost of
Friendliness” was Miss Mabel Mich
ael’s subject. Miss Michael brought
out some excellent jioints. She dosed
with a suitable poem by Van Dyke.
“We shall consider the needs of om*
friends and sacrifice onr time and mon
ey for them, if necessary. Take Christ
as your example. He gave His life for
His friends. Are we willing to da
Miss Ruth Kimball discussed “Big
Enough to be Cheerful.” “Cheerful
ness makes life really worth living,”
the speaker stated. “It is a delight to
be with cheerful people. Let us culti
vate cheerfulness. Face your troubles
cheerfully. Then you are boun 1 to
win. ’ ’
Miss Bruce Cates sang a beautiful
and impressive solo, “The Lamb,” by
John H. DensmoTe.
Miss Susie Elder clearly showed the
importance of being “big enough” to
make growth, instead of wealth, one’s
goal. “We should expand mentally,
physically, spiritually and socially, in
order to live a well-roaiuded life,” Miss
Elder averred. “Nature says we can
keep our talents only by using them.
As youths of the Twentieth Century
our bugle call should be “Forward! ”
“Big Enough to be a Good Winner
as Well as a Good Loser,” was Miss
Judith Black’s topic. “We should not
be satisfied after winning once,” Miss
Black said, “but we must keep on win*
