McDOWEU CLUB FEATURES
THOMAS MEIGHAN IN
The second McDowell Club picture
was presented in Memorial Hall Sat
urday night to an audience fully as
large as the one that enjoyed
“Penrod” two weeks ago. This time
we saw Thomas Meighan in “Gappy
Ricks”, a play adapted from Peter B.
Kyne’s book by that name. It was a
good wholesome picture, one that hek*
the attention of everyone from the
first scene until the end, full of fun
and laughter, yet with many pathetic
bits. Everyone knows what Thomas
Meighan at his best can do with hit,
winning boyish smile and his magnetic
personality. He was certainly suitea
to the part of the sailor boy who
treated his mother and sweetheart
with so much tenderness, but w^ho
from his long inheritance of sea-far
ing ancestry, possessed a strength so
indomitable that even the big six-foot
Swede could not down him. Fully ai
interesting was the character of
Gappy Ricks, the peppery old man
who asserted his authority with so
much vehemence and who held out so
long against our hero. Needless tc
say he was finally conquered by the
charm of young Matt. How the old
man tore his hair over Peaseley’s im
pudent telegrams' How he brandish
ed his cane when that young man
twice barred his progress along the
gangplank of his own ship!
Between the parts of the picture we
were introduced to a male quartet,
organized under the direction of Mr.
Frank Thorpe, who teased our
curiosity by giving a couple of songs
behind the scenes. At last they re
sponded to a regular storm of ap
plause by appearing in full view and
giving several popular selections
which everyone enjoyed. Miss Dun
can played appropriate selections dur
ing the picture. During the first few
scenes, when the young sailor boy was
bidding his mother farewell. Miss
Grace Keeney asng very beautifully
the second stanza of “Little Mother of
Mine.” One of the Academy classes
sang the chorus of “Sailing” to ac
company several of the ship-board
During the last two intermissions
we were introduced to some “Komic
Klippings” thrown upon the screen,
which provoked quite a few smiles and
in which we recognized the hand of
our good friend Mr. Higgins. It is
possible that quite a feature may be
made out of these “Komic Klippings”
and We hope that many students will
be on the lookout for humorous bit.^
and hand their contributions to Marian
Cooper or Mary Howard Turlington.
A regular sigh of disappointment
went up from all sides when it was
announced that the next picture woulo.
not come until March 10th. It is cer
tain that the more we see the mori
grateful we are to those who have
made possible for us such a highlj
successful form of entertainment.
BISHOP RONDTHALER TALKS IN
Series of Lenten Services Is Begun.
The last Wednesday chapel service
»ook those of us who were familia*
with Young Peoples’ Meetings back ,
the past years when the eleven o’clock
hour was spent in prayer and song
and meditation under the guidance >
Bishop Rondthaler. Throughout the
Lenten season this custom is to be
revived as it was in the Advent sea
son. Last Wednesday the Bishop
came and began his series of talks,
which is going to embrace the lasi
night and day of Jesus’ life on eait.
ihis time is to be the golden threat
on which, like pearls, will be stninfe
the words and sayings of the Christ.
The background for the first saying
was given by the Bishop from his own
rich experience of travel in the Holy
Land. His first sight of the Garden
of Gethsemane was from a housetop
early one Easter morning. In the
evening he passed down the Via de la
Rosa mto the walled garden wli_.
•‘the shepherd was smitten thai, .
might rise again to be the living shep-
nerd and to lead his flock to iiie
peace and rest of the New Jerusalem.’
ihe garden lies at the foot of the
Mount of Olives and was resplendent
with the delicate white blossoms
the gnarled, worn olive trees and wit.
many of the flowers we know—vioi^,
mignonettes, pansies, and daisies. Is,
more restful, pleasanter place to react,
think, and play can be found.
Gethsamane was not dark in the
literal sense the night when Jesus
prayed there; the term “dark Geth
semane” refers to emotional darkness
which Jesus and his disciples experi
enced there. Eight of tlie disciples
stopped at the gate while the three,
Peter, James, and John, accompanied
Jesus within the garden. The Christ
left them and withdrew himself to the
side of the hill where he fell on h .
knees and then on his face, praying
in a terrible agony and bowing under
the sorrow and the burden of the sins
of us all.
According to Mark, who had it from
Peter, Jesus’ utterance then was,
“Abba Father, all things are possible
unto Thee; remove this cup from me:
nevertheless not what I will, but what
thou wilt.” In this crisis of his life
Jesus reverted to the tongue of his
native place in the use of “abba”,
meaning “dear”. His extreme tender
ness and love for his Heavenly Father
are shown by this one word. “Cup”
in the sense of “experience’ ’is used.
We should note that there are two
prayers here—the first the natural
craving for mercy or blessing, and the
second, the resignation to the Father’s
will, whaeever it may be. Instances
were givn which illustrated the abso
lute need of the second prayer with
the first before an answer may be ex
If the spiritual blessing gained in
this hour foreshadows that of the
ones to come, we may look forward
with extraordinary anticipation to the
Wednesday chapel services of the next
few weeks. Everyone joins in wel

service and appreciates his willing
ness to come to us with his always

LARGE NUMBER ENJOYS SATUR
At four o’clock Saturday afternoon,
a large number of girls gathered for
the regular cross-country hike. The
trail round through valleys, across
what is known as “Happy Hill”, and
on beyond to the hills and forests.
The crisp winter air makes brisk
walking most enjoyable—so enjoyable
in fact, that no member thought of
calling for a halt. After about ar
hour of walking across the hills, a
sharp turn was made to the right.
The girls, thus making a complete
circle in the afternoon’s walk, re
turned home by the Greensboro or

the report of the Student Conference

Student Forum. It is most interest
ing to note the trend of thought and
opinion of these students, gathered, as
they were, for the leading colleges
and universities of the world. In the
thoughts of the college students of
today we see mirrored the events of
