day e\euing, March 4th, at 8:00 P. M.
Tliis attr.action will be William Wade
llinshaw’s “The Impresario,” by
Woldgajig Amedeus Mozart’s comic
During the past three seasons Mr.
Hinshaw’s company has given “The
Impresario” nearly three hundred times
before the music clubs and societies of
the country, with great success, and has
received the highest jiraise from critics
and public for its artistic and cultural
worth and its exijuisite and charming
Chief among the artists of the Im
presario Company is Henri Scott, the
distinguished American basso. With
out (luestion ITr. Scott stands to'day as
the greatest American Operatic basso
before the public. He was born in
Philadelphia, educated at home and
abroad, and has had a wide experience,
and for seven years was with' the
Metropolitan Opera of Xew York and
the Chicago' Opera. He has a voice of
great dramatic power, and is a fine
actor and consummate artist.
The members su|iporting him in the
Impresario Company are, Miss Hazel
Huntington, prima donna soprano, Miss
liOttice Howell, eolo'ratura soprano;
Harold Hansen, tenor; Francis Tyler,
bass-baritone, and AVillard Sektbeig.
Hazel Huntington i=^.a clever actress
and also a so]irano whose voice has
much flexibility and an unco-mmonly
high range. For two seasons Miss TTow-
ell has dazzled the luiblic as “Horo-
thea” in the Impresario performances
with her beautiful voice and charming
personality. Mr. Hansen is a young
singer of ]iro'niisc with a tine lyrie tenor
voice. Few young tenors have made so
pleasing nn impression as has he dur
ing the past five years in his various
tours of the country. Jlr. Tyler has
been a member of the Tmpresnrio' Com-
panv for three years and has won the
praise of critics and public with his
fine voice and splendid acting. An ac
complished pianist virtuoso is Willard
Sketbprg. whose work is one of the
most artistic features of the concert.
The Impresario” is the best num
ber that has yet been brought to Elon
College, and is amo'ng the best ever
seen in this section of the country. The
opera lovers w^ill have an opportunity
to see this company’s performance at

The regular weekly program of tlie

February 24tli, was indeed a good one.
First of interest was a talk by G. L.
Holland, his subject being, “Wliat Con
tributions Have North Carolina Writers
Made to LiteratureV” Mr. Holland
made us quite proud of our state and
its jnen of literary fame.
Next, F. C. Kainy read for us one of
his most thrilling original short .stories,
entitled “The Long Eoad Home.”
O. A. Pearce also pJayed an impor-

co'inposed of Elon's past stars, gave the
present team a hard light, causing the

more practice, there might have been
another story to tell. Fix and Brown

THE QUESTIONS BELOW
ARE FOR PROFESSORS
This vear the faculty has not shown
such an interest in the college paper as
it has in the past. Although it is main
tained by the students solely, the staff
appreciates conti'ibtions from any mem
ber of the faculty, upon sub,iects that
will be of interest to the students and
the alumni. To try to get something
started the w'riter would like to ask the
faculty as a whole a few questions that
are of vital interest to every student.
We should like to have members of the
faculty send in to the staff answers to
these questions. The faculty gives the
students tests and the faculty should
have one at least once a year.

Elon took the last home game of the
season from Leuoir-Ehyne by the score
of 23 to 14 in a game which began with
a snap and was close for the first half,
but which began to drag in the second,
the home team taking the lead.
Byrd began the scoring for Elon an^

knotted several times during the ini

The questions follow;
(1) Do you take students’ outside
activities into consideration when grad
(2) Do you believe in final examina-
(3) What mark of progress in the
College, outside the construction of the
new buildings, has been most significant
in the past five years?
(4) Do you endorse college social
clubs? If so why? If not why?

dents to the best of your ability?

has four or five other courses besides

most outstanding cause of flunking?
The series of class games that have
been in progress for several weeks,
came to a close on Friday w’ith the
Juniors as winner. Tlie thirty-six games
]dayed, each class playing nine, have
been interesting from start to finish.
The members of each class have backed
their own teams and at times the team
of their sister class. The »pirit of
rivalry has been keen. The series has
been a success and has furnished amuse
ment for the spectators. There has
been all kinds O'f basketball played,
some members of the teams never liav-
ing played before.
The teams have been nearly evenly
matched throughout. The Freshman
team got away to a bad start but wdien
men who had received training with the
Varsitv were sent back to the class
team thev took on new life and at the
end of the series w^ere making a hard
fight. The Juniors and Sophomores
have played practically tlie same team
the whole way. The Seniors have been
fortunate if they were able to have
enough men to start with. T^is class
had only a few men to pick from, how
ever, they put up a hard struggle. There
are three teams tied for second place
now. However, there is some doubt
nbout there being any more games be
cause of baseball practice and spring
In this game the Seniors took the
lead from the start and held it through
out the game until only a half minute
of play when a field goal by Thompson
put the Freshmen one x^oint ahead
thereby giving them the game 10 to 15.
This was without doubt the hardest
game of .the series and the roughest.
Each team played a game clo'sely akin
to football. Bloody noses and bleeding
knees were very conspicious on the
court. It was a battle royal and full
of thrills. Close guarding by both
sides kept the score small. Thompson
was the star for the Freshman team,
caging four field goals and winning the
game with his shot in the last thirty
seconds of play. Elder and Watson

came back strong and tied them in the
second h.alf, each team scoring 4 points,

scorer for the championship team cag
