Biggest Show of The Year
April 2 has been chosen as the
date for the Negro Minstrel, to be
given by the Athletic Association.
The annual display of local talent
promises to be above the average in
quality. Regular rehearsals of the
musical numbers have been going on
for over two weeks. It is believed
that with the two remaining weeks
of practice the soloists, quartetts
and choruses will be able to render
several of the latest song hits and
some old time harmonies with pep.
The end men promise us some re
liable information about local affairs.
There will also be "warm coons
prancing, and swell coons dancing"
for darktown will certainly be out
All those wishing reserved seats
should write H. G. Mcßane. Reserv
ed seats will be sold for 75 cents
and SI.OO. There may be a very lim
ited number of rash seats at 50 cents.
"THE MEASURE OF A MAN"
The announcement that A. I. New
lin was eo lead the meeting brought
a full attendance to the Y. M. C. A.
hall Thursday night. Those who at
tended were not disappointed, for
they received one of the best talks
that has been given this year.
The central theme of the talk was,
"The measure of a man." The scrip
ture reading was the first verse of
the eighteenth chapter of Matthew.
As an introduction he used a quo
tation from Emerson which says, we
take the measure of a man the first
time we see him and every time we
come in contact with him. To this
lie added that we are not always able
to judge accurately. We may be able
to say which football man is the best
backfield man, or the best line man,
but we cannot say which of the two
is the better foot-ball player. We
may be able to say who sings tenor
or bass best in the chorus but to say
with any degree of accuracy who is
the best singer would be almost im
possible. He then brought the sub
ject to a more personal point of view
and said, "if in gazing in a mirror
we could see behind the periphery ot
cur countenance a word of self-con
demnation would rise to our lips."
But though this hidden thing may
exist we have this reassuring state
ment from Mr. Wilson, "A man is
the part he plays among his fellows."
When a man approaches the end of
his life and looks back over the past
years, the thought that he has played
the part of a man is far more satis
fying than anything which he could
Then as a fitting close to his talk,
Algie quoted that well known poem,
"If" by Kipling that ends—
"lf you can fil the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of dis
Yours is the Earth and everything
that's in it,
And—which is more—you'll be a
Man, my son!"

The highest percentage was won
by the preparatory team, which won
every game. The Sophomore team
lost to the Juniors only on a very
close margin, due to the fact perhaps
that one of their players was taken
sick and the team was weakened.
However they were in the lead in

The Young Women's
Professor Dann Speaks
The Young Women's Christian As
sociation was very glad to have as
leader last Thursday evening, Pro
fessor Dann, who gave a very help
ful and inspiring talk on following
Christ through the church.
This message made each girl see
more clearly the necessity of becom
ing a church member, and working
for Christ through this organization.
Mr. Dann first gave the relation of
Christ and the Bible characters to
the church. We find Jesus while very
young going to the temple and syna
gogue. At this time he was recogniz
ed only as a conforming citizen but
after his relation with John the Bap
tist it dawned upon him that he had
a work to do. Jesus met with defi
nite opposition in the synagogue.
The experience of Paul was practi
cally the same as that of Jesus. Both
were loyal and faithful attenders of
the synagogue. But as soon as he
got the new vision his attitude to
ward the synagogue changed. Many
of our reformers such as, Wesley,
Fox, Erasmus and others, have had
worth not recognized until after
The Church must not be accepted
on it's face value, nor because of it's
custome. Our life should not be
moulded by the church but rather the
church should be moulded by our
lives. If we allow the organization
to push the people instead of the peo
ple pushing the organization we will
go backward instead of forward. The
church is needing us and we must
not stay outside because the whole of
organized Christianity is not what
the founders intended it to be or
what we would like for it to be. Some
people feel that they can stay. out
side the Church and live aChristian
life. However they are robbing them
side the Church and live a Christian
must come from the Church.
On the other hand there are many
people in the Church who have ac
cepted it and are trying to be a part
of it rather than Christ. To get what
Paul and Jesus got, do not accept
the Church as it is mapped out, but
have a keen spirit that sees into the
Beyond. It is necessary to become a
part of the organization which is
pushing toward the mark of the
highest calling, Jesus Christ.
