Last Saturday Gvcuiiigv the Psiplie
]iau Literary Society gave its annual
play, entitled ‘•f'onic Out o.t the Kli
chen,''' in the (.'ollege Jiuditoriuin. Tliis
was the second event of the Easter sea
son and drew a large and appreciative
.'ludienee. TJie play held the audience
in suspense for two and a half hours,
and everyone went away feeling that
the PsipheJians were indeed good enter
The play was taken from a story of
the same name, l>y Alice Duer Miller.
The scene was laid in an old Virginia
mansion and the story revolved around
the foTtunes of the Dangerfields, wlio
owned the historic plantation. From the
story we gather that the family had
suffered financial losses and the father
had gone to Europe for his health. This
left the children to look after the place
and its heavy moTtgage. How they did
Ms was the theme of the story. Ro
mance had its place in the story and
of course th( beautiful daughter mar
ried the Xortfieru hero.
Between tne acts the audience was
favored by the apj)earance of some well
known artists. All of these were either
eld members or honorary members. Miss
Xolan gave organ solos, Miss Madge
MofBtt, vocal solos, accompanied by

DERATE FRIDAY NIORr
Debate Over the World Court
Question Results in a Unani
CLASS HAS WON TWICE
The Sophomores won a unanimo'us de
cision over the Freshmen here the even
ing of April 10, in their annual Fresh-
man-Sophomore debate. The question
was that of the entry of the United
States into the World Court on the
terms proposed by the late President
Harding, the decision of the judges,
based on the argument of the speakers,
was that the United States should enter
Representing the Sophomores and the
affirmati\'e side of the (piestion were
Kathleen Paschall, Emily Midyette.
Henry Peel, and Floward Richardson.
The Freshman negative team was com-
])osed of Hannah Clair New'iuan, Min
nie Johnston, Clayton Latham, and Con
The Sophomores contended that while
the World Court and the terms pro
posed by President Harding were not
ideal as we should like them, yet it is
the most effe‘tive means at hand for
preventing war and encouraging arbi
tration. The negative contended that
entry into the court would entangle the
United States in foreign affairs and
constitute a menace to us.
Although the Sophomores received a
unanimous decision the debate was ex
ceedingly close and hotly contested
throughout. It was one of the best de
bates heard here in a long time.
This is the seccnd time the class has
won in tlie annual event and since tlie
•Junior-Senior debates are not held anv
longer the class of ’27 will graduate iin-
,defeated in debating. This is a signal
honor for the class, as it is the first

Voted Best on Program.
Tlie Philologians held one of tl'e best
meetings of the year on Thursday
night, Ajiril 2. Ail numbers w'ere well
pre^jared and were delivered with a
snap and vim wliicli made the program
iiitei:csti]ig and enjoyed by everyone.
Paul McNeil gave a very good bi*
ography of Senator LaFollette, showing
that LaFollette has always been a “go-
getter,” a man w’ho' has made himself
all that he is. LaFollette was left to
manage a large ranch when a mere boy
but lie succeeded and became a leader
in national politics after serving as
Governor of his state.
Mr. Williams varied the prograni
very pleasantly by reading “An Old
Sweetheart of Mine.” The reader s
voice was in excellent condition and
his masterful interpretatio'n of this
poem won for liini the honor of best
speaker of the evening.
OJ. G. Stanley discussed the financial
benefits of going to College. He showed
that a college education costing but a
little over two thousand dollars yield
ed an income equal to an investment of
tweh e thousand. A rather well paying
))roposition! In Current Evejits, A. J.
Strum told the so’ciety of recent scien-
tilic tests which show that the sun ab
sorbs nearly 70 per cent of the energj-
of Radio waves, hence it is better to
broadcast at night than iu the daytime.
Fngiish scientists seem to think that
moonlight aids radio broadcasting.
T. V. Huey gave seme very amusing
jolcea, causing a number of laughs.
Fowler mentioned some interesting facts
in the life of Longfellow in a brief bi
ography of that great wn-iter.
The negative defeated the child labor
amendment, convincing the judges that
this bill should not be passed because
of quite a number of gocwl reasonri.
The debate was interesting and the ma
terial well presented. H. A. Peele and
W. B. Newman w’cre the best on the
affirmati^'e and negative respectively.

tight ball, and gave the Christians no
chance to roinp around the bases.
The game began with Dudley taking
two bases on Walker’s error and com
ing in on Byrd’s wild throw. Elon
also tallied one in the first as a result
of Walker’s three-bagger. Hundley gave
way to Robertson on the mound in tho
fifth who pitched until the 8th when
Zimmerman relieved him as the Chris

Coa^i Corboy sent in two pinch hit
