plans developing for the occasion tend
toward a delightful as well as profit
able day.
A debate between the two societies
begins the progviim. The Euzellan de

a three-fourths or nine-jury system Is
enough to render a verdict,”
A football game affords pleasure for
the afternoon, Wake Forest Freshmen

It la Inferred that the girls are ex

Wake Foreet.

and their guests will dine at the Wil
liamson and Robertson ;lubs.
After dinner there will be an hour's

GENERAL DISORDER IN
TWIG OFFICE MONDAY NIGHT
EDITORIAL STAFF SUF
FERS MENTAL DILEMMA
On Monday evening several mem
bers oI the student body remarked on
the general disorder in the Publica
tion Offlco and the harried expre-
sions of the managing editors. If all
the secrets of that ofllco were only
known, and if each and every person
at Meredith could help bear the many
troubles of tiie editorial staff, perhaps
mutters might be improved. But it has
already been tested and proven that in
all the activities of this world the
responsibility rests on a few. And in
this case the "few” were working and
worrying, as usual. However last
Monday night even more than usual.
If towseled hair and lined foreheads
portray Inward disturbance, the most
casual observer would be asaui'ed of
the poor editors’ mental dilemma. And
the cause of all this? One should say
[Gausea! Stunt night is just over, All
excitement has died out. Nothing is
going to happen from now until Christ
mas. Not euough news to even fill up
the front page. Why do such lulls come
in the college term? There are French
tests tomorrow that ought to be studied
right away.—Then one bright editor
decides to write an article to All up
apace. She gets some paper out and
settles herself. Ten seconds pass and
she is still settling. Why don’t ideas
come at critical moments? Why do

MAKING THEIR DEBUT
HARVARD FLYING
CLUB ORGANIZED
Intercolleglaic News Service
That the wheezing and coughing
“collegiate” Ford must not have Its sis
ter conveyance in the air, is the warn
ing of Mr. Edward P. Warner, Assist-
cint Secretary of the Navy in charge ol
Aviation. Mr. Warner, iu an address
boCoro the Third Intercollegiate Avia
tion Conference at Yale, pointed ont
the danger of flying with any but trust
worthy planes.
College men are beginning to take
to the air in appreciable numbers. The
Harvard Flying Club and that at the
University of Southern California are
two of tho most advanced student
groups. The latter already owns sev
eral planes. European students, how
ever, surpass the Americans in flying.
One of the speakers at the conference
cited a meeting iu the Rhone River
section la^ August where 400 planes
were ontered. Eight hundred pilots
took part, ninety per cent of which
were college men. College men won
all of the prizes.
Tho populai'lty of flying has added
a new prohibition to the list of “thou
shalt nots" of the Wellesley College
(Oonfinwed on page four)
Once upon a time (as it happened,
it was on the evening of November
10, 1928), the spirit of Stunts ap
peared before the happy students of
Meredith College. Ifow this spirit
was not unknowi for he had the
custom of paying an annual visit to
them as he went to and fro about
the world.
On this particular night the tiny
sprite announced that ho had a sur
prise in store. “You mortals are so
fond of variety that I shall present
to you some events of the past, pre
sent and future. Yoii shall also go
with me to distant land.s and even
to one place which is not on earth.”
When he finished speaking, he
summoned four spirits to his side.
These were tho spirits of tbe four
classes. He bade them bring forth
what treasures thoy had and also
warned them to be careful in their
manner of presentation, for they

NAME OF DRAMATIC

FACULTY MEMBERS OF
MUSIC DEPARTMENT TO
GIVE SCHUBERT PROGRAM
TO BE CALLED SIMPLY
“LITTLE THEATRIi”
IN FUTURE
The “Little Theatre” met Friday for
its regular 'bi-monthly discussion of
dramatics. It was dncided thiit the
chib be called the “Little Theatre,”
rather than the "LiLtle Theatre”
Dramatic Club, since tlie latter name
is long and seems redundant. After
tho routine business, an interesting
program was given in which some un
expected excitement prevailed. In the
midst of a discussion of Marionettes
given by Mai-guerite Muaou, the lights
suddenly went out, and no amount of
humoring would make them burn. Tho
program was continued In oue of the
reception rooms which proved to be an
excellent place for a club meeting.
The following program was given:
"The Marionettes” by Marguerite
Mason: “The New York Stage,” hy
Miss Hoagland; "Eva La Galllenne,”
by Pullen Belvln.
