Vote Your Own
The student body cf Elon
College is an intelligent one.
This campus in many ways is
better than that of the usual
small college. Though in some
ways Elon is superior to the
most of them, in at least one
way she has rated low: the
way we have in the past re
sponded to campus elections.
These officers up for elections
are your officers. Vote for
them, not as someone else wants
you to vote, but a.5 you con
scientiously desire to vote.
Elon Debate Teams
In Forensic Tournament
The El;n College Debate teams
participated in the So.uth Atlaji-
tie Forensic Tournament held j
at High PO'int College cn March
1, 2, and 3. Although the final
result s'hiolwed only four favonaible
decisions chalked up for Eli-n and
eight aldivet'se decisions, the teams
should be congratulated for the
work they did during the Tourna
ment. The affirmative team won
over Wake Forest, the state cham
pion for this ye-ar and alsiJ chalk
ed qp a victory over Garson'-New-
m'an, a no'rthern sichool that boasts
a atriong set-up. Those making
the trip were Emerson Sanderson.
T;'mmy Earp, Isaiah Sears, Le-
Grany Moody, Emanuel Hedgebeth
and the coaoh. Dr. French.
Dr. French says that the Elon
debaters 'were not as adeq.uately
prepaired or trained as some of
the other participants, but he be
lieves that there is a go'oid chance
for Elon to c-me out ■on top in
the Forensic Tournaments- next
Education Club Visits
Neighboring Schools
About twenty-ifive members of
the Bdui.iati-n Club .of Elon Col
lege, under the chaperonage of
Dean Oxford, Professor Beecher,
and Dean Messick, visited the
Practice School of W. C. U. N. C.,
Cenitral Elemenfcajy School, the
Juniior High Schotol, and the
Senior High School in Greens
boro, Wednes.day, March 9. The
trip was arranged by Dean Mes-
sick.
Those who went on the expe
dition reported having seen some
excellent wwrk in progress, and
they state that mu'oh bencifiit wtais
derived from the trip. They
were particiularly loud in their
praise of the receptiMD accorded
them by the school authorities.
“Rmeo a.nd Juliet,” the most
beloved romance of all times, will
be the highlight of the ispring mo
vie seriej. It was presented last
night in Whitley ani will be there
i30jin tlonight. Niorma Shearer
and Leslie Hoiwand in the leading
roles depiot the young loves of
Verona with superb talent and
cha.im. The halo-ny si.ene is all
Shakespeiare could have wiished it
to be, and the whole love story,
wofven' like siome colorful thread
in the tapestry of hate, is one of
dii'amatic pageantry.
But “Romiei> and Juliet” is more
than a great Iwe 'Story. It is
a colorful cross section of tha
fifteenth century, iwhen the Italian
Renais'sari^e was at its height.
Filmed agauns.t this intererting
background, it ijsyaicked with tense
dramatic, and comicil sitpationi.
The duel between John Barrymore
and Bazil Rathb.ne is memorable.
Edna Mae Oliver’s, characteriza
tion of the nurse, which she plays
ttt the hilt for all its uproarious
comedy, and the wotrk of C. Au
brey Smith, are of sipecial note.
The screen pnod'uction with the
excepti)-n of the fifty lines cut by
the censors, is just as Shakespeare
conceived it. Unbound by the
liniitatilonis. of the stage, the s«.ireen
gives the complete scope. The
costumes, setting, scenery, eve.i
to the smallets detail are loajriied
from authentic soiurces, and are
the Wi rk of the best technicians
and designeiris of America. Dr.
Collins stated that in his opinion
this is the best Shakespeare pro
duction the movies have yet dione.
The s-hont 8>ubject aoJompany-
ing this picture is “Give Me Lib
erty”. This two-reel siubject give^
new meaning to the sfijry of the
periL'J'us tirrjes preceding the de
cision of the American colonies to
break away froim British rule.
Not only is it of historical vialue,
but it sh-‘ws the unhappiness and
miser of people divided among
themselves, and by so doing, leads
one to think moire seriously of
imipeniding governmental .crises
botn at h.'mie -and abroad'.
To celebrate our return to
sahool after the Spring Vacation,
“Banjo On My Knee” will be
shoiwn on April 1 and 2. Watch
for further announcements.

The Concert Series came to a
close last Mondiay night wiith the

Opena Trio'.’ The opera oast was
composed of: Miss Maria Maytas,
mezzo soprano; Mr. Robert Long,
tenor; Mr. Raymond Koch, bari-
t.>ne; and Mr. Chairles Luxvey, di
rector and awcompanist. The
opera had some spots of lively en
tertainment.
The preisentlaition of Debussy’s
‘The Prodigal Son’ •wiaa by far
the best part ‘of the program and
we have not one iota of .complaint
to make labout this scene. We
were glad oif the opportunity of
