The story of the piny was quite true
to life. The sto'iy is about the hus

to lus wife, on business. Miss Alberta
Atkinson played well the-part of the

wife. Henry Simmons (the husband)

On January 12th the lid came off
again and the social clubs on the
“Ilill *’ were permitted to take in
Freshmen for the first time this year.
The day was cne long looked forward
to by tlio- /’diibs and a dny long oxpert-
ed by some lucky Freshmen. The in
flux of new jnembers into the clubs
has already put new life iiito the club
spirit here. As the banquet season ap-
proaclu's there conies to all members
of the clubs a sense of the closer fel
lowship to be found therein. The so
cial clubs at Elon take the place of
the larger fraternities and soTorities
to be found in other institutions. There

Feature/ in a Splendid Drama.
“Souls for Sables” will bo the
campus attraction this week-end. It
i'as made a “hit" at places where it
has already slpown.
It comes to' us from Greensboro^ and
is going from here to Burlington.
Twenty-eight of the most expensive
dresses that an actrcss has ever worn
in one picture are shown in this.
The kind of a picture a loving mother
would almost leave a sick child to see.
This is a domestic drama in society
life. It is a gripping story of the
everlasting lure of fine clothes told
with great dramatic power and what
two women do—'the lengths they go—to
secure said raiment in the form of
expensive sable coats. Of course, their
husbands do not supply them. You
won’t believe that a couple of pieces
of fur can hold so much drama until
you see it. Fine, clever directorial
touches all the way through.
At the last show w^e did not take in
enougli to defray the expenses. Let’s
come out and everybody give a dime
so we will take in enough money to
keep the show going. We are trying
to get pictures that are interesting,
so help us in our effort by doing your

Ouring the short ])eriod that the
Maroon and Gold failed to appear we
had a holilay that held a s]iei-ial signif
icance for everybody here. It was
January the eighteenth. As everybody

LIEURANCE ON PROGRAM
OF FINE INDIAN MOSIC
Render Splendid Program in
Whitley Auditorium Thursday,
January 21,, 1926.
THIRD CONCERT NUMBER
The program of Indian music and
folk songs presented by Mr. and Mrs.
Thurlow’ Lieurance was one of rare
beauty. It was a program which should
have been of great interest to every
Mrs. Lieurance’s rich, pliable voice
blended well with the tones of the
ilutc, especially in the imitation of the
Niglit-Owl’s Call. Mr. Lieurance adapt
ed herself to each song, suiting her
action to; the idea of the song in such
a nuinner as to appear perfectly natural
in her interpretations. The Indian cos
tumes she wore were very attractive
and gave a touch of atmosphere to
Mr. Lieurance was a splendid aceom*
panist and brought out the lovely,
cl'.aracteristic points of every song.
11 is ex})lanatory remarks added much
to the program.
Mr. Lieurance has used the wliole
tone scale in many of his co'mpositions.
This was the original scale of the In
dians and he illustrated it very effec
tively in his demonstration of old In
The flute obligatos played by Miss
Reid added much to the program and
lier solo number won the hearty ap*
pjov.il of tile audieiict.
The informality of the entire pro*-
gram brought the artists completely in
touch with their audience. It would
be a pleasure to hear another program
given by these artists.
A. B. JOHNSON ELECTED
MANAGING EDITOR ill. &G.
Succeeds Henry Peel to This Office.
Is Capable Successor, Having Served
on the Staff Previously.
Tlie .Tunior Class and the Maroon and
Gold staff were very unfortunate in los
ing a feltow’-member and a co-worker
after (.Hijistmas in Henry Peel. Mr.
Peel, always a worker for his class and
for the Maroon and Gold, of which he
was managing editor, was unable to
re-enter school after Christmas and this,
of course, necessitated the election of
another managing editor. For this posi-
ton !Mr. A. Bennett Jnhnso'n was chosen
by the class. Mr. Johnson has always
shown an active interest in the paper and
has been a frequent contributor to its
columns. This experience and his great
natural ability makes him peculiarly
fit to assume the duties of his office.
TTjuler his watch-care we expect to see
tlie paper progress.
