(Old Gold and Black)
On last Saturday night, the B. Y.
P. U. of Wake Forest entertained the
B. Y. P. TJ. of Meredith at a very de
lightful social in the Society halls of
the sister Institution. At 8 o’clock
promptly there were over a hundred
fellows present, and several dozen
more arrived before many minutes
passed. Tiiere were approximately two
hundred girls as the guests of the
boys, and before the time for departure
came there were almost as many boys
present as girls.
The Meredith Society halls pre
sented a beautiful spectacle as the
Baptist youths promenaded here and
there. A wonderful spirit of brother-
sister fellowship was evident, and the
religious relationship of the two in
stitutions was bound closer by virtue
of this attitude.
Soon after the crowd of young folks
assembled, attractive cards bearing
date schedules were presented all pre
sent. The cards given to the girls
were decorated with Wake Forest
colors, while those given the boys
were decorated with the Meredith
colors. As soon as each person had
received his or her card, announce
ment was made that each person
would be expected to seek out and be
come acquainted with the five per
sons who appealed to him or her most.
Much interest was evidenced at this
time, because many conflicts in selec
tions seemed to be noticeable. After
a short while, however, all had ar
ranged dates. Then followed a pleas
ant period of chatting and laughter.
Many of the conversations were in
tones too low to be heard by others.
In many cases some of the folks re
sorted to whispers.
At the conclusion of the series of
tive-mlniite dates all of the boys were
gathered together In one hall, while
all of the girls were separated from
them and gathered together in the otlier
ball. Tiien the boys organized them
selves according to unions, and the
girls did likewise. Then one by one
the Wake Forest unions were escorted
to the hall containing the Meredith

Hoggard from Ahoskie has done faith
ful work on the staff and altho we
knew it was coming all the time, we
congratulate her and wish her better
success than any Tioig editor has ever
had. She is admirably fitted for this
position, both because of her experi
ence as managing editor this year and
bccause of her natural jncliuation tO'
ward this kind of work. We know that
with the cooperation of the students
she will make The TioUj a real means
of expresslUR student aims and ideas.

The great day has arrived, yes, and
the championship games are with us.
We've reached the “home stretch” of
tlie race we’ve been watching for the
past several months.
The initial contest between the Jun
iors and Seniors was quite an affair.
Both teams had been practicing hard
and when the whistle sounded they
were just rearing to go.
The first quarter, both teams fought
as if their salvation was vested in that
one game. The Juniors looked like a
heavy foe for the Seniors. But even
before the first quarter was ended the

A Roman Wcddinu, a play in three

Roman in character as It is based up
on the wedding scene in the home of
Marcus Tullius Cicero whose daughter
is given in marriage to Galus Piso;
hence, it is of great value in portray
ing Roman life, and showing Cicero
in a light different from that in which
he Is usually regarded. Laura Weath-
erspoon as Cicero, by means of her
dramatic ability, in the very first
scene took Cicero out of the students'
imagination and made him a real man.
In his own home he %yaa practicing his

ELECTS PRESIDENT FOR

At. a rcccnt meeting o? tho class of
'29 Marion Fiske, of Moyock, North
Carolina, was elected by a large ma
jority to be president of the Junior
class for the year 1027-2S. In choosing
Marion for this position as leader of
the class, we feel that we have chosen
one who possesses all the qualities of
ideal leadership: attractiveness, tact,
a poised and gracious manner, charm
and managing ability. She has shown

Madaline Elliott of Edenton, North
Carolina, member of class of '28, has
been rocently elected B. S. U. Presi
dent for the year 1927-28. As Presi
dent of the Baptist Student Union on
Meredith Campus, Madaline holds one
of the highest offices to which one can
be elected. She who thus leads all the
religious activities must possess exe
cutive ability, charm, dignity, influ
ence, and above all, a Christian spirit.
In Madaline we find these attributes
combined to form what we consider an
ideal B. S. U. President.
During her three years at Meredith
Madaline has made an ever-widening
circle of friends who are wishing her

Her tonal quality was sweet and clear,
and even tho softest tones could be
heard clearly and distinctly in the
back of the auditorium.
Miss James was beautifully gowned
in yellow georgette, trimmed In pink.
She carried a corsagc of pink toses

FAREWELL FARTY TO ’27
NEAR-BY LAKE SCENE OF THE
Seniors have been wearing unusual
smiles for a week—why? Just because
they came from the post office last
Friday with the most cunning little
cardboard pig which said:
What does this little pig say?
Grunt! Grunt! Grunt!
Wiiat docs this mean, I wonder?
We’re simply inviting the Senior
To a barbecue over yonder
At Allen’s log cabin Monday P.M.
Thore’s a pond down there
But we're not going to swim
Come in knickers at four-forty-flve.
Sorry you'll have to walk
But you just can't ride.
Well, we weren’t sorry that we could
not ride because the crisp March air
made us appreciate a brisk hike, and
our sister Sophs were on the back
campus ready to join us in it, so our
Cun began at once.
When we reached the Royallen
woods with its mixture of pines and
dogwoods and many violets we began
to think we had really reached an
enchanted forest, but we kept on down
the winding road till we reached a
charming little log house, and then
down another slope and we were at
the pond which the invitation had
mentioned. Tlie place was certainly
most ideal for a picnic of this kind.
The water was beautiful, and the
bright colored ducks seemed to be
having as much pleasure as any mem
ber of our parly. Then too, the little
green canoe made the pond all the
mure fascinating for us.
Shortly after we arrived at this
ideal place, Mattie Lee Eagles, the
Sophomore president, called us to as
semble in a group on the hillside where
she made the announcement that she
had heard a rumor to the effect that
there were real pirates in the nearby
wood, and that perhaps we should see
them if we kept watch. Just as she had
finished speaking from over an jp-
posite hill came a half-dozen of them
hurrying here and there frantically
digging for a lost treasure.

MISS BINZELL GIVES INTEREST
Saturday Night, Api-il 9, 1927
College Auditorium 8:00 p.m.
Those times are rare. In the hurried
schedule of our college lives, when the
student feels that perhaps she should
lay aside the more scholarly studies of
Latin and English, music and art, and
devote her college career to the ac
quirement of knowledge about the hu
man body and Ihe human mind. Those
times are rare, I said, but they do
come. One of tho times was Friday
morning when Miss Dinzeil spoke to
US in chapel. Never so forcibly bad

to teach him, in either the capacity of
