The Maroon and G-old squadron put
up an unexpectedly strong resistance
against the heavy Duke team last Sat
urday but lost 6-0. A punt which roll
ed for about 65 yards and a fumble
following the pant, were tlie two breaks
which gave the Duke team their chance
to' put the ball across the goal line.
Comer field had been made soft by
drizzling rains before the game started.
Soon after the teams got into action a
downpour started which all but stopped
the game. The sweeping rain continu-
•ed almost uninterruptedly throughout
the first half and drizzled during the
remainder of the game. The slippery
ball caused many fumbles by both sides,
while the condition of the field made
the game a pure mud battle.

The student body this year is the
largest that has ever come to Elon.
The buildings are not crowded, but the
administration has found that some of
the professors had too many classes
and in some classess too many students
Consequently it was found necessary
to make an addition to the faculty.

UP OF VARYING TOPICS
Hubert Lee Becomes a Member of The
After a short business session in the
society hall last Tuesday evening at
which a new member, Mr, Hubert Lee,
was taken in, the Clio Literary So
ciety was entertained by a number of
well presented talks on various topics.
The program, although it ccntained no
debate, was varied and interesting, and
the members who appeared for the first
time are especially to be commended.
The first number on the program was
a talk by Mr. T. R. Ruston on the life
of John Galsworthy. Mr. Ruston, in a
well prepared and well delivered talk,
gave a sketch of John Galsworthy’s
life and told of his fame as a novelist
Mr. F. C. Rainey then gave a talk on
the meaning of evolution. Mr. Rainey
stated that the study of evolution was
in itself a science and that the state
ment of the process of evoluton was
an invariable law of science. The

The joint meeting of the Religious
Activities Association was in charge of
the Y. M. C. A. last Sunday niglit.
The theme of the evening w'as “Re
spect, for Law.’’ In the discussions
that arose from this topic many good
points were brought out concerning the
proper attitude that we should take to
ward law, and law enforcement. The
scripture lesson for the evening was
taken from the thirteenth chapter of
Romans. This gave a foundation for
the whole subject, in that it gave
Paul’s views on law etiforcement.
The meeting opened with the sing
ing of “Ameria, the Beautiful.” Af
ter this there was prayer and the sing
ing of “The Battle Hymn of the Re
public.” Then the following men dis
cussed the following topics: “Jesus’
Respoct for Law,” Hubert Lee;
“Paul’s Respect for Law,” Gardner
Underhill;” “The Necessity of Law
in Our National Life,” Frank Alex
ander; “How May We Help to Culti
vate a Respect for Law as Christians,”
Following the discussion of these
specific topics there was a general dis
cussion of the theme. The meeting clos
ed with the singing of-“America” and
the benediction by Rey. W. T. Scott.

at the Whitley Auditorium Thursday
evening, delighted and thrilled a large
audience who had assembled to hear

The quality of her voice and the
charm of her xjersonality captivated
the audience immediately. She won
the favor of all, and w’as forced to
respond to many encores, with which
she was very generous.
The program was divided into five
sections, two of which were in a for
eign tongue, the other three being main
ly the work of American composers.
She showed a wonderful range of voice
in “Der Erlkoenig” by Schubert,
which held the audience almost spell
“Snow Flakes” by Gretchaninofl and
“Bold Unbiddable Boy,” were two
numbers of a lighter vein that took
well with her hearers, and “Les Filles
de Cadix, ” by Leo Delibes, and
“Awakening,” by Walter H. Golde,
were especially well rendered and made
a profound impression on her admirers.
Miss Meisle has a large following of
the music lovers of this section, and
a large number of out-of-town people
attended the concert.
Last Thursday was the day set aside,
by the Pan-Hellenic Council, for all of
the social clubs on the Hill to take in
new members from among the old stu
dents. This ruling was interpreted to
include old students from other institu
tions. Twenty matriculated students
have accepted invitations from the
various clubs and two clubs have taken
in an honorary member apiece.
Seven of the clubs received new mem
bers. These new club members, with
the old members, should do much to
make the social life on the campus
more enjoyable and will, in them
selves, be the means of more closely
cementing friendships among the stu
dents—friendship that will do much to
further a life-long interest in our Alma
The clubs and the new members
which they took in are as follows:

Portraits of the late Rev. Isaac
Mooney and of Mr. M. Orban Jr., were
unveiled at chapel services Tuesday
morning. Tliese handsome oil paint
ings, done by Miss Lila Newman, head
of the college Art department, are
placed in the chapel hall on either side
t>f the stage, in memory of two per
sonalities w'hich will forever remain
bound up with the cause of Christian
education. The Religious Activities
Building, the pioneer of its kind in the
world was given by Mr. Orban as a
memorial to his father-in-law, the late
Dr. J. U. Newman read the scripture
and offered prayer.
Prof. S. A, Bennett was in charge
of the services.
In fitting words he toIJ of the sacri

and Kansas, and described him as a
devoted preacher of the gospel.
Tribute was paid to Mr. Orban as an
active Christian layman, and a philan

devoted to Chistian love and service.
