The class in Creative English taught
by Mr. W. R. Wunsch will be disbanded
at the end of the semester. The course
will start over again next semester with
many changes. Mr. Wunsch feels that
the students now taking this subject
have acquired what he has sought to
teach—the habit of writing. He thinks
that it is well to begin over again with
a new grouj) of people, as he has planned
to work somewhat differently for the
next term from the experience of this

NEW YORK ATTRACTS
MEMBERS OF FACULTY
Shows Chief Attraction to Miss Tillett
and Mrs. Ashford. Christmas
Mrs. Mary Ashford and Miss Laura
Tillett, prominent members of the High
Scliool faculty, s})ent the Christmas
Holidays among the skyscrapers of New
York, 'riu-y left “tlie old home town”
shortly after the close of school, Friday,
December 18 and returned just before
it opened, Monday, January 4.
“Sliows” they said, “were the chief at
tractions”; Hamlet's modern dress was
one of the most interesting. The entire
cast featured modern dress. In the
mornings, clothes that were suitable for
morning dress were worn; in the evening
the latter effect was carried out. “'This
play,” lliey say, “impressed us more
tlian any other one we saw.”
Among the other plays seen by the
tourists were; 'The Wild Duck, in which
Helen Chandler, small girl about fifteen
years jilayed the leading role. Cyral
Maude ])layed in ‘His Charming People.’
“^'^>rt^•x“ is i\ new play by Noel Cow
ard, young English dramatist, who not
only writes his plays, but acts in them.
Shorlow's Review is an English folly;
Beatrice Lilly and Jack Barlowe play
leading parts. In the “I^ast of Mrs.
Cheney,” Ina Clair played the leading
part, hut Roland Young put the pep in
to it and got the applause. Mrs. Insull
in the “School of Scandals” was very
'The costumes of that jieriod added a
lot to the presentation of the play. Two
.short plays, “Androcles and the Lion”
and “'The Man of Destiny” in which
Clair Eanes played the leading role were
unusually good. “The Poor Nut,” a
typical college play, was v’ery clever and
carried with it a lot of humor.
On Christmas Eve night, Miss 'Tillett
attended the Carol service at the Epis
copal church. 'This service she termed
as being the most beautiful and impres
sive one .she ever attended. 'Tall Cathe
dral candles lighted the pews and the
altar. 'The choir came in singing Christ
mas Carols, followed by the little choir-
isters dressed in red, who lighted the Yule
Candle. Boy sopranos and older men
made up the choir and the singing was
beautiful. After the service the Rector
made his way to the door and gave each
a friendly hand shake. “'This,” Miss
Tillett remarked, “makes a stranger
feel miglity good.”
“'The y\merican Wing of the Metro
politan Museum of Art is wonderful,”
both expresed. In this they have the
history of American furniture and
homes. Rooms of such people as Alex
ander are reproduced, showing them ex
actly as they were in their day.
“'The stores,” declared Mrs. Ashford,
“were more beautiful tlian ever before.”
Big, handsome palms and other simple
decorations were placed all over the
stores. Christmas trees found their plac
es in Madison Square, I'nioii Square,
'Times Square, and at Pennsylvania

CRIME CAUSED BY
LUXURY OF YOUTH
So Gilbert Powell Declares to
Kiltie Club—Urges Boys to
Live a Christian Life.
Wednesday, January 6, Mr. E. Gil
bert Powell gave the Kiltie Klub of the
First Pre.shyterian church one of the
most interesting talks of this season. The
subject of Mr. Pow'elTs talk w'as “The
Crime Wave in America.”
“'The I’nited States,” he declared, “is
the most lawJcss nation on the face of
the globe.” He compared crime in the
United States with that of other coun
tries. “'The tragic thing about crime,”
he continued, “is that it is creeping into
the lives of young boys. The cause of
this is the increase of luxury. One of
the best things that a boy can do is to
build up a clean, clear-cut reputation.
It is always the man that has to struggle
and has to strive that comes out on top.”
'Fhe speaker emphasized the import
ance of boys’ and young men’s organi
zations. “If we can get more boys inter
ested in hoys' clubs there would be less
crime among the young. Be a Christian.”
He closed his talk by saying, “Only
those characteristics and qualities that
go into making clean, upright manhood
