Last ni^ht, the Shakespeare
“The Taming of the Shrew” as
Clas-s presented Shakespeare’s
its annual production. A1 Mastro,
■star ILneniaji of the Christian foot
ball team, had the role of Petru-
chio, and used much of his grid
iron ability to tame Katherine,
the Shrew, who ijs Miss Juanita
Waugh, of Burlington. The play,
S colorful i*omauce, was full of
comedy and action, and although
Mr. Mastro did not throw Kath
erine for any ten-yard losses, he
did block many af her kicks and
knocked down several of her at
The supporting east was com
posed of fourteen members of the
class, and the production, like that
of ‘The Tempest,” last year, is an
outgnowth of clasjroom activity.
The scene of this' famous come
dy iwas the Elon Little Theatre,
where an Elizabethan stage had
been constructed. The Shake
speare wardrobe had been increas
ed this year, and much time had
been spent to see that the cos
tumes were typical of :Shake-
speare’s day. They lent a great
deal to the setting and atmosphere
of the play. Students in charge
of research and design of co?-
tume.s were Melvin James and
Beatrice 'Wilkins of Haw River;
Margaiet Ea.p .f Green.-'boro; and
Florence Reeve of Riverhead, N.

one man is carried as “crew,” the
electrician; the rest of the com
pany, including the Stage Mana

as actors, each member of the
company being asiigned definiU
technical duties as carefully re
hearsed as the acting before th>.
start of the tour. This system
makes for a splendid group mo

judged from the fact that the

At the beginning of the 'season
it looked as if Goa\;h Smith wa»
faced with a hopeless task of de
veloping a football team at Guil
ford. In spite of the meager sup
ply of material he had to work
with, Coach Smith has developed
a pretty good team. They have
fight and intes.tional fortitude
enough to make up fo'r the size of
the .-Hiuad. The Christians, and
yuaker.^ have been enemies in
every type of .spwrt since way
back and from the looks of tilings
