™THE YONCOPIN STUNT NIGHT The ingenuity of the various girls ' organizations met its severest test in the annual presentation of burlesques and skits known as " Stunt Night, " appropriately presented on April 1. The program included ex- periments in horticulture, thrilling tales of robber chiefs and murderers in lonely lighthouses, clever satire, and other dramatic what not and what of it. The Freshmen, in keeping with their tender young natures, presented the picture of the trials and problems of gardening as solved by two lovers of nature. The Sophomores offered, for the edification of the many small boys in the audience, the thrilling tale of " The Robber Chief. " The Juniors made their bid to the ranks of the Little Theatre by the dramatization of a lighthouse tragedy in which duty and service were rewarded by a foul death. Especially good was the realistic (but silent) weeping of the bereaved mother and daughter. That gem of all side-shows, " The Human Piano, " was displayed by the Seniors. " Right this way, ladies and gents! The human piano played by Madame Paderewski! " And sure nuff it was. The Y. W. C. A. infused a Biblical note into the entertainment by a spirited (we might almost say spiritual) enactment of the main scenes in the life of Mr. and Mrs. Samson. In spite of the illness of the hero, the Kappi Pi Sorority entertained the audience with a four-act drama. The charming members of the Chi Delta Sorority gave an equally attractive pantomime symbolizing their organization. All the beauty of Indian lore was in the colorful dramatization of the story of the " Silver Water " given by the Phi Omega Sorority. In a true spirit of " See yourselves as others see you, " the W.

™THE YONCOPINS tions was very clever and we nominate the following as an All-Star team: Mary Grace Lowry as Professor Harding. Ida Mae Cox as Burney Howard. Ellen Montgomery as Frosh Baker. Andrey Barr as Professor Wheeler. Irby Lea May as " Papa " Hughes. The Zeta Delta Sorority won the much coveted 18-karat Sn loving cup with a touching rendition of a ballad concerning the woes of Romeo and Juliet. The chorus was made up in such a manner that when it " left-faced " the audience had a picture of neatly dressed young gentle- men and when it " right-faced " they saw a bevy of elaborately costumed girls. This half-and-half condition was a source of great mystery and joy to the spectators. Beginning with the story of the meeting of Romeo and Juliet in a restaurant (where Romeo owed for what Juliet) the song continued through their life history and ended with a warning that balconies must be omitted in the erection of new dormitories at Centenary. Sure, a good time was had by all! MODEL 1927 GRANDMA My dear, when I was a girl your age, I thoroughly knew what cooking means, And great was the praise that my cuisine got — (By the way, will you open a tin of beans?) My child, in the matter of cleaning house I swoon at the things you girls don ' t know (One moment, dear, will you move that lamp A little aside, so the dust won ' i show; ' ) My love, in speaking of needle work, The sewing today is a frightful sin, Such slovenly work I never saw — (Will you kindly hand me a safety pin?) My baby, you girls think more of men Than e ' er young ladies did before. (Ah me, is my henna rinse still in? Fcr eld Mr. Jones is at the doer!) 196
