IN CHAPEL NOV. 3
On Thursday, November 3, the
Freshman class held a debate on
“Resolved, that automobiles are
more important than husbands” as
a part of its first chapel program
of the year. Since there were no
judges, each person made his own
decision as to the outcome. Marie
Riddick and Rebecca Gay were the
affirmative debators; Earl Barrett
and Walter Dudley upheld the neg
The affirmative contended that
automobiles are more important
than husbands for three reasons:
1. A woman does not have t«
cater to an automobile as she
would to a husband. She can oe
herself in the presence ot an auto
mobile, because it can neither
quarrel, talk back, nor get the last
word. Women like to be independ
2. Automobiles may be dispos
ed of more easily than husbands
and without undesirable publicity.
3. A woman can keep tag on
her automobile more easily than
she can her husband.
The negative declared that auto
mobiles are not more important
than husbands, because:
1. The husband’s chief purpose
and desire is to protect his wife.
2. The husband helps his wife
enjoy life by providing not only
necessities, but also luxuries.

feast, as college girls are always
ready to eat.
About 11:30 o’clock when every
thing seemed to be perfectly quiet
the work began.
A number of girls gathered in
four different rooms on the fourth
floor to have a “mid-night feast.”
Everybody got busy to spread the
food when they all began to laugh
and talk. They seemed to have
forgotten that they were supposed
to be asleep.
All of a sudden a creaking sound
was heard in the hall and then a
voice saying, “Girls, Girls, you
must be quiet” Hugh! a minute, and
all the girls knew that Miss Mc
Dowell was on their trail.
In another second everyone had
jumped into bed and was just as
quiet as a mouse until it was
known that Miss McDowell was
again in bed.
The girls then quietly opened
the doors and gave a glance first to
the right and then to the left. No
one was in sight. They all slipped
back to their rooms glad to know
they were at last safe.
