ELON TEACHER WILL
GIVE CONCERT HERE
On the evening of October 8,
a group of Chowanians interested
in writing, met for a pleasant
hour together. The admission to
this club of University Wits, as
they call themselves, is an ori
ginal composition of any type. The
club meets every two weeks,
usually on Friday night.
The first program of the Uni
versity Wits was varied and in
Miss Carroll, the English pro
fessor, read “Bill and the Grave
yard,” a quite amusing and vivid
poem of rapid motion (Bill’s mo
tion in getting away from th«
Mildred Hinton gave “To Liz
zie,” which appears in this issue.
It speaks for itself.
Wilma Ellington read “I Like
to Go to Bed,” a very amusing
familiar essay which expressed
the sentiment of her audience
concerning the love of sleep.
Ruth Davenport read “Disaster-
ous Mine Explosion,” a news
story very well organized and in
teresting, even if imaginary.
Addie Mae Cooke read “Charity
in College,” a very sincere and
forceful familiar essay.
Mary Lou Jones convulsed The
Wits with laughter by an “Ode to
a Fly.” We hope to print it soon.
The last reading was by Isla
Poole, “Two Years in California,”
a familiar essay very impressive
and beautifully worded.
Janette Stout, expression teach
er of Elon College, Elon College,
N. C., will give a recital at
Chowan Friday evening, October
26. Miss Stout will give an un-
usualy interesting program con
sisting of a very humorous play,
Miss Stout is highly recommend
ed by the president of King’s
School of Oratory, the school from
which she was graduated.
Her recital is under the au
pices of the sophomore class.
Everybody is invited to come
and enjoy an evening’s entertain
Admission will be 50 and 75
selections and manner of render
ing them were met with great ap
plause by the audience. She gave
as an encore “The Star,” by Rog
ers. This was followed by a read
ing by Miss Poe, who responded
to her well-deserved recall to the
stage by reading “Since Katy Got
Struck On the Stage.” Miss De-
Lano’s second number of the pro
gram was a group of songs from
“Divan of Hafiz,” by Harling.
These pleased her audience so
much that she gave as an encore
“Rain, Rain, Rain,” by Gay, which
brought an ovation from her list
eners. She seemed to have the
power to make her audience feel
the song with her as she sang it.
There was a touch of lightness
and fancy in this song which nev
er fails to bring an answering re
sponse in the hearts of those who
It would seem that the audience
would have exhausted all feeling
and sympathy in the songs of Miss
DeLano, but they still had en
thusiasm in store, as was shown
by the response they gave as Miss
Poe read “Anne of Green Gables,”
by L. M. Montgomery. This was
a clever and entertaining story,
which gained in worth through
the interpretation of Miss Poe.
The character of Anne seemed
very realistic and vivid. W© saw
her as she really appeared to Mat
thew, who met her at the station
and carried her to Green Gables.
Silence followed chuckles as Miss
Poe first amused her audience
and then made them serious. As
an encore to this number Miss
Poe read “Deceitful Man.” The
last number on the program was
a group of selections by Miss De
Lano. This was a fit ending to
the delightful program of the
evening. As an encore Miss De
Lano sang the hymn, “Now the
Day Is Over.”
Miss Matthews contributed her
valuable part by her well-played
accompaniments. Without her.
Miss DeLano would not have giv
en the audience her message in
song. On the whole, we may say
that Chowan has seldom, if ever,
given a recital so well attended
and so much appreciated and en
joyed as this one. The following
is the program in full;

The Baseball Game
Late in the afternoon the digni
fied seniors lost a fast game of
baseball to their rivals, thr
juniors, by the score of 19 to 18
Both teams seemed to be warmed
up at the very beginning of the
During the first inning, the
seniors apparently had the game
going their way. At the end of the
first inning the score stood 5-0
favor of the seniors. Cook, Still-
m a n , Downey, Jeffreys and
Daniels each having made a run.
In the fourth inning, however
the juniors came back at
seniors. The score stood 10-9
their favor; Leonard, Hemby,
Vick, Britton, Jones, Brewer and
Baucom having made runs.
In the last inning the seniors
fought like Trojans but were not
able to overcome the juniors.
Leonard, Hemby and Flythe had
each made a run, and so the game
went on, finally leaving the score
at the close of the game 19-18 in
favor of the juniors.
The game was one of the fierc
est battles in baseball witnessed
at Chowan College in quite awhile.
The lineup was as follows:
Recital In Evening
The last, and, we may truth
fully say, the most enjoyable fea
ture of Founders’ Day, was the
fine arts recital, given by Miss
Inez Matthews, Miss Mildred Poe
and Miss Forest DeLano. Miss
DeLano, accompanied by Miss
Matthews, alternated with Miss
Poe in entertaining in a most
charming manner the crowd of
eager people who had come to
hear them in the first recital of
the season. For one hour and a
half, the delighted audience sat
spell-bound except when they
made the auditorium resound with
encore after encore for the artists.
For one who was for the first
time hearing Miss DeLano sing,
the time passed too quickly. And
for those who came back to hear
Miss Poe read, the occasion was
well worth the efl'ort put forth in
