PRDFS. BROWN AND VELIE
EXPRESSION DEPT. TO
STUGE “SHOW OFF"
Mary RaWls Jones Plays Leading Part.
“There’s nothing can be done by
anything, Clara,—when once the main
thing is done. And' that’s the marri
age. That’s where all the trouble
starts—getfin ’ nmrried, ” sjiys Mrs.
Fisher, her mother.
The paragraph quoted above repre
sents one of the predominant elements
■of the “Show Off,” the play which
will be given by the Expression Depart
ment of Elon College some time during
November. This play was run very
successfully in New York, and we feel
confident tTiat It will be enjoyed like
wise at Elom.
The cast of the ploy is as follows:
Clara Mary Rawls Jones
Mrs. Fisher \irginia Harden
Amy Mabel Barrett
Frank Hyland Mr. Ruston
Mr. FisTier Mr. Clapp
Jcre D. C. Boone
Mr. Gill C. Wightcnan
Mr. Rogers A. Rodrigue
Each on& of the players has- had con
siderable experience, which assures a
capable presentation. Most of us are
familiar with' Miss Harden, Mr. Lowry,
Mr. Enston, and Mr. Boone, who have
participated in different plays here very
successfully. Their ability as actresses
and actors, respectively, is unquestion- ,
able^ and we feel certain that( this will |
^ontribiite to make the play a greater ,
Miss Stout, head of the department,
is coaching the play. That means that
t^e play will be a decided success.
On Monday and Tuesday of this week
Miss Brown and Prof. A’elie conductel
chapel services. Both of these faculty
members appeared for the. first time
this year as leaders of the chapel ser
vice. Miss Brown spoke on Monday on
“An Apprecia^O’* Life.” “So
many times we are so near the good
things of life that we cannot appreciate
tliem, ” declared Miss Brown. We are
like the little boy w’ho longed to visit
house which stood on a neighboring
l ill, and whicli seemed to him, because
of tJie reflection of the setting sun, to
have golden w’iudows. He was disap
pointed when, after he reached the
house one day, he saw* that the windows
were just plain glass. Turning tow'ard
his ow^n home he saw that it had beau
tiful golden windows. Not many of us
are as appreciative as we might be, nor
do we show i^ as much as we could.
Like little Pippa, we need to forget
our cares occasionally and sing;
“God’s in His Heaven
All’s right with the world.”
Professor Yelie, head of tlie Music
Conservatory, told the story of Alex
ander Yon Skibinsky, the great Russian
violinist. Skibinsky spent many years
in felie United States as a concert artist.
He was a good sport and one day dur
ing Christmas he was celebrating with
five works. Through chance he bought
a giant fire-cracker, the shopkeeper
who sold it to him thinking it was a
Roman candle. When the lire-cracker
was lighted the left hand of Skibinsky
v»’as seriouslv injured. Doctors told him
that it would have to be amputated.
He refused *-o’ iiave an operation, declar
ing that he was going to play the
violin again. To humor him the doc- ^
tors patched his hand up as bes^ as they ,
could under Skibinsky's own direction.
Then he went to New York to a fac-
toTv and asked to have an index finger
made for his left hand in order that
he might play the violin. The people
thought he was crazy and made no
attempt to make a finger for him. He
gained permission to enter the factory
and finally made a finger that he could
use, crude though it was. Then he
began work with the violin again. It
was necessary for him to learn an en
tirely new technique. He practiced
long and untiringly until he became a
grea^ artist again. Prof. Yelie played
with Mr. Skibinsky fox two seasons on
concert tours. He stated that he had
worked with Mr. Skibinsky quite a
while before he knew of his handicap
because Mr. Skibinsky made no apolo
gies to his audience nor was his handi
cap generally known.

Dr. W. S. Alexander, pastor of the
College CInnch, preached an appropri
ate and insi)iring sermon hero Sunday
morning on “Christian Citizenship.”
T)r. Alexander began his sermon by
stating that Christian citizenship was
iletennined by the acts of the individual
latlier than the great mass of hurnan-
While his talk was far removed
from a political sermon, he discussed
the inipoTtance of the individual ’s right
to vote. But he did not magnify the
planks in one candidate’s platform and
belittle the plaaks in another’s. He
did not tell the congregation how they
should cast their votes on November the
Ctli, but he implored them to spend
much time in fervent }H'ayer, asking
that the will of our Heavenly Father
niiglit be done, and that tlie chosen
leader of the American people might
obtain his ottiee as a result of the fer
vent prayers of the Christian people.
If the political preacliers who, for
the past few' months liave been preach
ing high powered political sermons and
holding up man-made’ creeds as a sal
vation for men, would resort to Dr.
Alexander’s plan of persuading people
to come to their conclusions after spend
ing much time in prayer, there would
be far more accomplished for American
civilization, and fewer revivals needed

Elon's Fighting Christians lost their
most importan*' game of the season last
Saturday to Guilford Quakers. Our
leam and the entire student body were
hoping for this game to be a victo'ry
for Klon. The team showed some real
light, and the student| body gave their
support all during the game.
Tlie game* started w'ith Elon leading.
Walker. Elon’s quarterback, began with
some excellent runs. In the second
play ‘‘Zac'- slipped away for a 25-yard
gain around left enl, and in the next
play carried the ball for ano*])ier nice
little gain of 13 yards.
Guilford’s only touchdown came iu
the latter part of the first quarter, when
Smith kicked from his 30-yard line, the
ball going outside on the 50-yard line.
With Cox and Mooro carrying ^|)ie ball
on a series of line plunges, Guilford
stead ilv marched down the lield until
Moore carried the ball over for a touch
down. Cheek kicked for the extra
point giving Guilford 7—Elon 0.
During the remaining three quarters
neither team was able to score, although
Elon Ijhreatened several times, but lack
ed the drive to put one over. The Guil
ford team show^ed good interference,
which gave them the edge over our men
to a great extent.
On the Elon offensive, “Zac” Walker
proved outstanding, with Williams,
Latham and, Clark looking good on de
fensive. “Speck” Siievenson and
“Shug” Merritt were unable to play
the entire game on account of some
serious injuries received in previous
games, but we hope to hear from these
men in the High Point game here next
Saturday. We are still expecting a vic
tory and are looking forward V Sat-
