John UrquKart Mewman T IS impossible to think of Klon without at the same lime thinkino- of that genial gentleman to whom the 1017 Phipsicli is affectionately dedi- cated. How fitting the honor this, bestowed on a man whose chief char- acteristic is modesty! The class of 1917 has chosen well and all the Alumni will rejoice in their decision. Dr. Newman was born January twenty-nine, eighteen hundred si.xtv. in the city of Portsmouth, ' irginia. His parents were John B. Newman and his second wife, Miss Hannah G. Urquhart. Three brothers and three sisters followed him into the home. Two brothers and two sisters by a former marriage had pre- ceded him. A sister, Mrs. Charles Joyner. Nansemond County, Va... his tw i half-brothers and his father have passed to their reward. His aged mother, now in her 82nd year, and the other chddren are still active in life ' s busy undertakings. One brother. Rev. N. C. Newman. D.D., is College Pastor at Defiance College, Defiance, Ohio, . nother brother. Rev. C. E. Newman, is pastor at Virgilina. Va. One sister, Mrs. W. C. Wicker, is the wife of a minister. All members of the family are active in Christian work. What a record this and what an inspiration ! Dr. Newman ' s connection with 1-Ilon began in her prenatal days. When he was twenty-eight years of age and teaching in The Graham Normal College, the conviction kept growing upon him that the Christian Church in the South must have a College of its own, not to teach sectarianism, but to exemplify in education the beautiful principles of liberty and love taught by that Church as embodiments of the program of the Master for His Kingdom among men. So zealous an advo- cate was he of this need that, when the Southern Christian Convention met in extraordinary session in Graham in September, eighteen eighty-eight, Dr. New- man was by special request made a member of the Board of Education, and this Board brought in the report that made Elon possible. Two years later when Elon opened its doors first for students. Dr. Newman was here as a member of the Faculty and here he has remained till this good day, nine years of the time serving as Chairman of the Faculty, or Dean, investing his life, his heart ' s devotion, his all in giving form and loveliness to the institution that has meant newness of life and ((uickening of aspiration to so many noble men and women. It has been a deliberate choice — for many times he has been I ELON COLLEGE I Page Six sought for other places — a choice of tender love and affectionate sacrifice. Rut who shall say that he ha not been led of the l.ord and wisely therefore in this choice ? Xo man is jjladder today of the pros])erity and growth of Elon than Dr. Newman. He will delight you for hours with thrilling accounts of the incnn- veniences, the hardships, the bitter struggles of the pioneer days, with ladders for stairways, with poor lamps for electric lights, with open fireplaces for steam-heat, with felled trees and the debris of the builder ' s art everywhere in profusion. " But, " he will add, " we in those days saw in our heart ' s desire this better day and rejoiced in it and do rejoice. " Like one of old he can look around this place and truthfully declare: " 1 am a jiart of all I survev. " Dr. Xewman is head of the Department of Greek and I ' .iblical Literature in Elon. He has had a rare preparation for this responsible position. Prepared for College in the Suffolk Collegiate Institute, he graduated in 1885 from the Uni- versity of North Carolina. He later studied in the Divinity School of Yale Uni- versity, liut his chief preparation has been his studious disposition, which during thirty-two years of constant a])])lication has rendered him the most finished Bible scholar in the Christian Church. He dreams in Greek, it is said, and his pupils can hardly see how it could be otherwise, if he dreams at all. Dr. Newman ' s library of Greek and I ' .iblical works is a collection remarkable not onlv for its size, but more so for its di crimiiiation and insight — a double insight at that, since unlike many a scholar who buys books Dr. .Newman has really seen their insides. They are his dear and intimate friends. Dr. Newman was licensed to preach in his eighteenth year and ordained in his twenty-third. He has given his life to the ministry of teaching, however, rather than to the pastorate. In this way his scholarship has counted throughout many a state and nation, and he preaches from hundreds of pulpits weekly rather that! from one. The man who trains other men to be messengers of the Good News has a stewardship of the Gospel tremendous in its consequences and preg- nant with power. Dr. Newman has been s];lendidly successful in the type of min- ister he has trained. The preachers who have gone out from Elon have been gospel preachers, consecrated, devoted, earnest. The vindication, rather the crown, of Elon ' s Greek and Bible teacher, therefore, is his handiwork in the pulpits of the churches, and equally so in the pews — for the laymen too, many of them, have studied Greek and Bible under his leadership. I ELON COLLEGE I Page Seven not PMIPSIC1 I Dr. Newman ' s life has been given almost entirely to teaching. He was first instructor in English and Philosophy at the University of North Carolina. His ne.xt appo ' ntment was associate principal of the Suffolk Collegiate Institute. From that post he liecame Adjunct Professor of Latin in Antioch College, Yellow Springs, ( )hio. This was a most fortunate position, for here he met with Mrs. Newman, who was then Miss Pattie R. Long, Odessa, Mo., but a student in -Antioch. In all Dr. Newman ' s career this Christian woman has been all that the Scriptures imi)l - in that suggesf ' ve word, help-meet. She is active in Christian effort and in the good deeds which she does. Mer children, three sons and two daughters, praise her and call her blessed. So also do her frienth — and they are everybod} ' . From Antioch Dr. Newman came to The Graham Normal College and accepted the chair of Latin and Creek. There he remained till the College whose name, Elon, means strength and beauty, was founded in 1890, as we have said. Here the honored scholar and beloved man has become " rooted and grounded in love, " to quote from Paul, and here he has grown in usefulness and power until like kberty and union. .Vewman and Elon, have become one and inseparable, now and forever.

' POET. i ELON COLLEGE Page Forty-liuu Senior Class History ' i.i iX C( )LLE(iI ' " was disci ivered by one iiiemlier of the class as far Iiack is Sept. 11, 1891. A second wayfarer landed here March 6, 1910. (One if two other noted explorers reached the college in l ' )ll, and others came in 1 12. The mass of the class arrived, however, earl - in September, 1913. The date of the official organization runs back to September 2?, 1913, at which time it was organized with 39 members. Its personnel has been gleaned all the way from the ( ireat Lakes to Georgia, and is composed mostly of farmer girls and l)oys, aKo the industrial and com- mercial world has contribmed its share. It becomes the statistician ' s o] purtuiiity to announce — for the class has never felt or taken knowledge of the fact itself, that 80 per cent of its members are Christians, 10 per cent Methodist, 5 per cent Presbyterians, 5 per cent Baptists; 6 will enter the ministry, some medicine, some music: and others will fill their respective spheres in the busy world. In this short sj ace generalit-cs more than particularities nnist hv m.ide prom- inent, but as no historv can live without the men and worn ' n that make it, the historian is forced to deal w ' th a part of the personalities. Ever since that memorable day wdien Mary West was elected first president of the class and a comm- ' ttee was appointed to frame its constitution, the class has been movitig forward. It has won its share of victories and has occasionally felt the force of defeat. W. J. 11. Truitt won for our class the College Peace Medal and for the College in the State Contest the first ])rize. while a few months later we surrendered a debate to the class ' 16. In 1914 Grover Harris became second president and Mary Ruth Johnston secretary. Crumpton and Smith regained a place for the class on the debating map, leading it to victory in its second forensic conflict The names of Frank Morrett and Mollis Atkinson became names to conjure with in athletic circles and helped win the championship in the state contest. The year 1915 made Crumpton third president anil .Mamie Johnston suc- ceeded Mary Ruth as secretary. The class of ' 16 fail mI last ear to face the class of " 17 in forensic battle and thereby forfeited to the class of ' 17 the annual debate. Our class also found a way to the front as a class team in basketball. This year registered the class as having received in its three years ' in college 10 gold medals through its memliers. The closing year is far frmn finished — lieu Williams is the fourtli presiflcnt and Julia I ' armer is secretary .Already we have lost lli.- annual debate Inil h;ive I ELON COLLEGE i Piii r Forly-l iree won the class championship in basketball. It cannot be foretold how the class will succeed in the peace contest, but it is significant perhaps that the college has been represented in the state contest but four times and each time by men who are members of ' 17 (Truitt, J. G. ; W. J. B. : White, R. M., and Smith, H. S. ). While ' 17 is the larijest class in the histor v of the College, it does not claim to be snperiiir in any other way. Our original loyalty has tti into love, the first hand grasps have held it together imtil now in the happiest bonds of fra- ternal friendship, they cannot lose their grip — all together we have gone — all together we go — the class of nhieteen-seventeen ! -HISTORTAX. " S ELON COLLEGE I Pn r Forty-four Last Will and Testament o tne Class of iqiy STATE OF XORTH CAROLINA. ,. County of Alamance. ( Realizing that the time for our departure from these halls of learning is 50 rapidly approaching, and that the time is at hand when we must bid a long fare- well to this dear old campus and all the places of interest around this ideal " Col- lege Town. " and that we shall soon look for the last time into many faces which shall long be held in memory-, and that all the tough courses of study have been mastered, we. the graduating class of Elon College, being of a sound mind, do hereby revoke all wills, codicils, and other testimony dispositions heretofore made by us. and declare this to be our Last Will and Testament. SECTIOX L Article 1. We leave to Dr. Harper full permiss- ' on to christen all new walks laid out on the campus, since he was so successful in naming " " Possum Avenue. " .Article 2. To the deans, who have had so many consultations concerning the class of ' 17. considering why it was so different from all other classes with which thev had to deal, we wish first to tell them that we are different, and it was impossslble to change otu-selves for four brief years. — even to please them. However, we lay at their feet a bundle of requests, begging that they forgive us. Anic ' e 3. That august assemblv called the faculty, we wish to thank for the many times they have called us into their meetings, for in so doing they have given us experience in solving problems on the spur of the moment, which other- wise we might not have had the opportunity of doing. SECTION II. Article 1. To the Freshman class we leave in book form a collection of aU our experiences during the last four years, vividly illustrated by Grace McCuUers and B. M. Williams. (Obtain the same from Dr. Know-all ' s office. Article 2. To the Sophomores we leave all our self-importance witli the hope that before long they, too, may find some defects in Sophotnorefaood. . rticle 3. To the loyal Juniors we will all that they can find bearing the coat-of-arms of " ' 17. " . mong the things easily found will be an extension of the campus : a certain degree of authoritv- never before felt — but. however, this may get you into serious trouble : away in some obscure comer you may find something hke this, " ' twas all so different from what we expected. " Article 4. To the special students whose time hangs heavily on their hands we recommend that they spend two hours each day for the next four years, try- ing to codify and systematize the rules passed by the faculty during the last twenty years, which may now be found in a stack of minute books 18x24 inches, six feet high. These can be obtained from the College vault. i ELON COLLEGE Paaf Forty-five gasmmmimL-. SECTION III.

I was near a wood in my thoui ht and an object, whether of bone and blood I know not, attracted my attention : this figure, it seemed to me, was rapidly count- inq its fingers and toes. When drawing nearer I realized she was working out the future of time, through the medium of mathematics. I asked if she could tell me of the future of our class. Her answer was an emphatic " No, I can not. " I then began naming some of my friends in hope of learning the future of some one at least, and I hap])ened to mention John Truitt, but caught myself and e.xclaimed, " )li ! but you said you did not know any of my ' 17 friends. " " But he is not a ' 17 man, " she made answer, " for he surely graduated last year. " " But he is back this year, " I said. " I know, but that is because he had rather play than work. " " But you came to hear about his future; know then that your friend will be elected a fellow of O.xford and will publish a work called ' Infinite, ' which will contain formulae for public speaking, love-making, and composition, all worked out on a pure mathematical basis. " At this I was conscious of not having nuich faith in math, and less in charms. I wanted some means to really get some insight into the future ; in the days of Alchemy I might have been fooled and you also, but not today. I was so blue I decided to make a pleasure trip, leaving mv immediate trouble behind. I arrived in Xorfolk twelve hours after this decision was made. I hastened to the aviation i ELON COLLiGE Ptifle Fnrty-eiiilil " l=lEi held and one of my friends projiosed lliat we take a flis ht. So we did. We went, and kept going until 10.000 feet of space, ether, and air was between ns and a solid footing. I must have been meeting the earth at about 50 miles an hour when I said to mvself, " ' Here is where I get out of a math, e.xamination. " You have heard that a person dying, or thinking he is dying, sees his past and future. I verify that hearsay, r I not only saw my past and future but the past and future of mv friends. I saw all this and more but thought, what 1 know now will wit do anybody any good, but let us see how it turned out. I saw Miss .Atkinson, at Elon, away past the meridian of life. She met every train and every mail ; she was no doubt waiting for and expecting somethine. I asked her if I might be of any assistance. She replied, " Yes, go tell the Uni- versity of Virginia to hurry and graduate that lawyer for 1 want and need him. " Again I saw her when w-th nose abridged, step infirm and tears aflow, she was longing, waiting, and still expecting, I next saw our much believed-in Smith. He was not a persuader to the mourners ' bench, but this is what I truthfully saw him to be: a divorce lawyer, a man w ' ho extracts Cupid ' s darts and severs his arrows when they hit the wrong persons, and many he separated whose torch was still lighted from Hymen, but which was utterly extinguished by him. Mr. Heatwole I saw the pilot of a shi]), but he kept leaving his post to ask the captain some silly questions which he should have known. On account of this his ship was wrecked and he marooned. This I saw clearly, liecause Mr. Heatwole started this habit of depending on others to judge for him while at Elon. He used to run to the head of that institution to find out if it were against the rules to drink what was served as coffee from a saucer. Mr. Bergeron, I saw a recognized scientist, when I ])erceivecl him to lie in the act of grafting a tune to his family graphophone, while some of the chiklren cried, " I acldy. daddy, hurry and fix this before the babies wake! " Times being hard, he had recentlv perfected a machine by which milk was extracted from the niilk-w ' eed. In 19. 6 I saw a woman selling dyestuff. She was one of those old ladies who want to look about twenty-five years younger than they are. I would not have known her had she not, taking pride in her coal black hair, said it was fiery once. Then I knew she with the curls on either side was my classmate and Bill ' s admirer, .Miss McCuKers. I saw .Mr. (kinn. who in the past had been such a boisterous, commandering kind of person, meekly beseeching some Jews to get their umbrellas so that he might fix them, Mr. W. J. B. Truitt had been associated with him in this work, but had beLii caught borrowing some old clothes and sentenced to the road where Payc Furly-nine 1 1 9i PM i PS i:o .1- .1 he was engaged — putting clods of dirt on grasshoppers ' feet, therein- making them clodhoppers. Mr. McCulloch. the would-he orator of older days, was filling Booker T. ' s place only moderately well. A picture of Salt Lake City vividly startled me. I saw our modest Crumpton married, married inde ed. He had turned Mormon, his hair white, what little he had at the age of thirty. Domestic trouble I knew to be at the root of it all. l!ut speaking of domestic relations, I remember seeing Mr. Poe vainly hunt- ing stock in a stockless market. He was a successful speculator known on Wall Street as Phomio. ( )nly once bail his judgment failed. He figured that he was going to manage a Farmer for better or worse, but results easily warped through the fickleness of chance are tlnis, Julia in theory was a dependent, but in fact a monarch of Bill ' s surveys. The Right Reverend Williams, that antiquated near-farmer wlien he entered Elon. I saw to be a carnival shark, selling " Immortal Bitters. " Some said he was very r ' ch. Mr. Apple was a canine dentist in Gibsonville. His Inisiness was very rush- ing, so much so that he was forced to employ Mr. Gerringer as keeper of the animals. The city of Gibsonville also brings to my mind Mr. Donovan. He lived in the country not far from there raising horses, cotton, cows, pigs, and children. Miss Annie Simpson had plighted her troth with a street car conductor by the name of L. W. " aughan. She was successful, I saw, in ruling her home and husband. She also manipu ' ated the pay-envelope. Miss Mamie Johnston, as missionary to Australia, was practically worshipped by those people, while she worshipped another being, a simple ex-postmaster, if the truth need be told. Miss Michael I saw making illustrations for the daily called " Elonish Bul- letin. " Miss Riddick, I saw a governess in a prep, school up East. She had been married but got her name back witli alimony, or all the money, I have forgotten which. Mr. Atk ' nson, who had been so long in getting through school, liafl for- gotten all he knew. He was trying to preach his favorite sermon. " The sun do move and the earth am square. " Miss Randolph in Chicago occupied the chair of alinormal psvchology, where she taught table walking, spiritualism, and hypnotism. Miss Wellons, married to a baseball player named Sorrells, was doing settle- ment work in New York. Her favorite quotation about men is. " Time unfolds what plighted cunning hides. " I ELON COLLEGE I Page Fifty WEB ' Sir. Frank, a member of Keito ' audeville, was making quite a hit singing such songs as " Mamma ' s got the rolling-pin ; no bread tonight. " Mr. Reidel seemed to me to be enjoying life to its fullest extent as viewed by him. He was cook in a Greek cafe in Baltimore. He seemed satisfied getting board and room for what little he did. Thomas, the comic acrobat, I saw with a tent show, one of these ten-cent afl ' airs, as a clown; he surely made those mill ])e()])le Ha! Ha! Mr. Jennings I ' leming. the teacher of our class, is successfully handling a kindergarten class in Yonkers, a very small town. Miss Mary R. Johnston, I saw a lecturer in one of the largest Chautau(|uas. Her biggest lecture was on " The Decline and Fall of [Man, " using the term man in its narrow sense. All at once my descent became much slower and again I regained conscious- ness, if I may term the state so, and found that in my excitement I had not noticed my parachute was up-side-down. By some means it had righted itself and my landing was safe and I must state, filled with hope, expectation, and thank- fulness. " PROPHET. " ELON COLLEGE I Patir Fifty-one ii9i PMiPsiei-i ' arrk.

" I ELON COLLEGE Pa r Sixty-three 119$ PMIPSICI-I €EI History of me Junior Class ■ -M- HAT a great day was September 1, 1 ' ' 14! Young Americans from vari- ■ ous places in the Eastern half of the L ' nited States martriculated at V M r Elon College. Sixty-five of whom were called Freshmen, particularly by those uppish Sophomores. A few weeks later, however, when our names were read out in Chapel, we became conscious of the fact ourselves. The class was duly and formally organ ' zed. The selection of the motto, " Putare est posse, " and choosing the owl as the emblem, shows the high ideal of the class. The history of our Freshman year is much the same as the history of every other Freshman class: the getting acquainted, the organizing, the contraction of that dreaded disease " Tremoritis " (which, strange to say, attacks its victims only in class rooms and on examinations) ; and the usual participation in athletics, debates, and other College duties and pleasures. At the first meeting of this class as Sophomores in September, 1915, only thirty-one answered to the roll-call. We were greatly disappointed to have lost so many but " To meet, to know, and then to part, is the sad experience of the student ' s heart. " We determined to make up in energy what we had lost in num- bers, therefore our Sophomore year was an industrious one. This year we fully realized what was expected of us if our class emblem and motto were to hold their significance. Consequently we worked zealously for the accomplishment of these high ideals. The history of our Junior Class began during the graduating exercises of the class of ' 16; with that auspicious event came the falling of the mantle on the class of seventeen. Those few remaining days we trod these classical halls of learning as though we were in the etherial realm of intellect. It took the few summer months of pleasure and work to bring us to a normal condition. Juniority. So much so, in fact, that when a Sophomore meeting was scheduled we had to think twice to know that we were ranked Juniors. After looking in vain for two weeks for our president-elect and actually hearing that the call of the cave-man had possessed h ' m, we held a class meeting and elected in his stead Mr. H. M. Redding. At this meeting, too, new members were added to our list until we now number forty-five. We are steadily recover- ing from all the affectations of lower classmen and have a fair start in those " enviable dignities " of the upper classmen, for instance, an A-1 recitation without any preparation. Already our class has the distinction of possessing a member who is recog- nized in the literary world as a poet and short-story writer, bringing not only renown to himself, but to his class and his . lma Mater. This is none other than our own class poet. At the end of this year we hope to have made our motto, " Putare est posse, " so much the guiding principle of our lives that when the mantle shall have fallen upon us at the close of our Junior year the class of ' 17 will think nf us as worthy successors.

All that reminds us of our Freshman join-ney is sinking rap- idly in the wake, while the beginning of the Junior lap is slowly appearing upon the distant horizon. Almost two years ago we met for the first time. . t that memorable meeting- there were one hundred and thirty-nine young men and young women who had launched their frail barks upon the ap])arently seething billows of " College Life : " for the - had heard the summons to a loftier and nobler service. Each one had been living for two weeks as if in a dream; each new move being a startling revelation of life ' s panorama. The strangeness of the surround ' ngs had not driven from his mind the last angelic vision as she stood there in all her beaut and splendor. The words nf her eternal loyalt were ringing in his ears, and thai last handclasp, as the train liore him away t(i the Realms of Knowledge, was still warm. ( )ur coming last fall was practicall - tlie same as that of all other Sophciniores down through the ages. Of course we felt nur importance as Sophomorical tradi- tion would have it. It is but natural that we should since we saw so many Fresh- men navigating the halls and class rooms like a swain venturing upim a bar.roi.ni floor for the first time. We were all, no doubt, glad to get back, but there were some of our number who looked forward to the day of our returning with a great deal of anxiety. These, not having been rendered invulnerable by continued doses of Dr. - mick ' s " Math. " had felt the sharp pangs of Cupid ' s darts, . nother th- ' ng that was very apparent was the fact that we went through that matriculating busine-s. the horror of all " new " students, without a hitch. Well it may be that " .Sophs " are not " tjuite " as big " ignoramuses " as thex are gi cn the credit of being. Xo doubt we . ' elt green last year, bul oh. how different things this year. It gives us a pang of regret when we look around and see our ranks so sadly depleted. We rejo ' ce that ue had them with u for a year, but a feeling of melancholy steals over us when we recall their features and their familiar voices seem again to ring through our halls. Wherever they max be our jjrayers go out to them and they may rest assured that we long to have them back with us. ow that we have a firm foothold upon tin- great ladder let us ever keep our motto, " . scendite etsi rupes asjjerae.

There are at present thirty active members on its roll, and many honorary members who have finished their college course, and are engaged in active work either as pastors or as leaders in other lines of religious activity. Although the association has no motto, it has a two- fold purpose, Spiritual development and Practical training. It seeks to attain the first through the means of its weekly prayer meetings. The men gather every Wednesday night in the Y. M. C. A. hall, and under the leadership of one of their own number, or some outside speaker, they take up and discuss some topic of vital importance, and the meetings are, as a rule, ins]3irational in nature. The association also seeks to make its influence felt in the college life. Equally important is the work done by the association in giving the members practical experience, and under the direction of a Looknut Committee, members are sent out into the rural districts and nearby towns to conduct religious services. It must not be inferred that the men who go out do so in the spirit of mere prac- ticing at the expense of the people whom they serve. Each man realizes the sacred- ness of his mission, and while he does realize that it is an opportunity for self development, he does not lose sight of the fact that he has a responsibility to dis- charge, and although conscious of his own lack he goes in the strength of Christ, and seeks to carry a message that will lead some soul to a higher life. Thus it will be seen that these embryo ministers exercise an influence for good not only in the college, but in the comnnniity at large, and in thus testifying at Jerusalem they will be fitting themselves to testify also at Rome. i ELON COLLEGE I Page One liundred fourteen arrg : il£ Paiir One hundrrd fiftern Page One hundred sixteen PMIPSIC1.I i ELON COLLEGE I Page One hundred seventeen nom PMipsieL.1 €EP Patfe One hundred eighteen slEt= Volunteer Band ( )FFICERS F.

At times our team played brilHant ball, however, the season ' s record might not indi- cate it. When we remember having lost seven of our games by the close margin of one run, then we are reminded iiow pleasant it was for us to have hopes of winning until the final inning. In the beginning we were handicapped by liaving only three lettered men, and our weakest place was with the young pitchers, but by Coach Johnson ' s skilled training new men seemed to develop and fill the vacancies of the man who formerly won fame for Elon. This ear we have not so far had sufficient evidence to sav " who is who, " but the first call for practice brought forth a number of brilliant men from which the vacancies are to be filled. It now appears as though Sorrells, our last year ' s southpaw, Stiteler. a prom- ising young pitcher, with the assistance of Reid and Winston, will do the twirling in a creditable manner. First of all. Maxwell, our cajitain. did excellent playing for us at the second bag. We have great confidence in his playing, and by his clever fielding and constant hitting of the pill, we could ask no more of an amateur. Purcell is to do our receiving this year. No one has more " pep " and a harder worker never donned an Elon suit. Last year he filled this position in a very pleasing manner. We predict a great future for him in the field of baseball. With Holliday or Banks at first, we know this position will be well cared for. When it comes to covering ground and cutting them off at first, we are reminded of our veteran Seawell, better known as " Red. " We not only count on the above qualities but when he steps to the plate our hearts leap with joy on account of his " bingle, " for on few occasions has he ever disappointed us. Nance, at third place, a handsome lad, a hard hitter, no doulit will do the stunts around this position. This being his first year with us we are unable to say definitely, but from all appearances he is going to make somebody lav down his glove. Our outer garden will be composed of Ragsdale, I ' ogleman, Simpson, and possibly a few others, all of whom have made an excellent showing in using the timber. We have by far the best all round team Rlon has had in recent years, and bv the direction of our amiable coach, together with Atkinson to train the twirlers, we see no reason why Elon should not be reckoncMl with in the state championship.

The team of new men, and though a loser for the greater part, made a splendid showing, playing excellent ball, holding all opponents to a close j core. playing such a combination of players as Trinity on their court to a three point margin, being ' n the lead until the last minute of play. The team, though it was rather light, averaging l. ' O pounds, was always in the fight. The men who compose our team have labored zealously, and deserve specal mention. Captain Sorrells, by all mear.s has come up to our expectations. -Sorry " always had the " IJC]) " and if the occasion demanded it he was always there in the fight. However he did not always hold his man scoreless, as he w as too busy securing points himself. .-Kt foul shooting no one at Elon has ever surpassed him ; and his cool and clever disposition is admired by everyone. Seawell, known as " Red, " was c assul by many who witnessed his playmg, as one of the best guards in th.- .state. He was not only fa t m pa-sing but was able to add points to the score in the mtantime. This b-ing his first regular year. we predict a " wonder " in h:m for Elon next year. Xo one on the team has worked harder than Cox. ai c-nter. this year; h s pleasing disposition and personality are admired by his opi nents as well as his team-mates. In several games he not only scored more points than any member of the quintet but also held his opponent scoreless. Next year we s -e no cause win he will not easi y fill the position that was so well ])hiyed liy .McCauley. Xe.xl, we are distingu ' shed from other (luints by having a " pn-acher " on our team. Harris p ayed the game at forward: although he was not so fast, he was considered by many to be the best first year man in a basketball suit. He was especially good at passing and very skill fid in handling the ball. Fraiiks. the speedy forward, showed wonderful form, and nuire improve- ment than his ttam-ma ' tes. In the beginning he lacked skil. and fight, but before the mid-season those defic ' encies were overcome.

This contains the college bell that has rung many a poor stuilent to his doom. l!v climbing to t1ic sixth floor one may go out upon the tower and see the beauties of the campus lielow if the dav is clear. To behold it is wonderful ! Those blasts that you hear, dear reader, come from the class rooms of the same building. The jiuffing of the students tr ing tci pull up liad grades is similar ti i that wliich we hear coming from the Southern locomotives pulling the stiff grade toward ( iibsonville. . lso on the first floor of this bulding is the dean ' s ofifice, where all the oung men ' s college careers begin. Many end in the same iilace. . ' nw we will turn to the dormitories for a brief discussion. That line of streamers composed of night shirts, blankets, and other paraphernalia, inin what is known as the East Dormitory and the Alumni Iniilding. The third and fourth floors of the Alumni building arc used by the box s for shnnbering apartments. The second floor is the gym proper. This vertical geography helps us to see the good old X ' arsity quint defeat its op])onents during the liasketball season. The first floor entrance is down a flight of steps: wliert ' manv rooms are found for numer- ous ])urposes. Moving further on we find the West dormitory, where the college beanerv is located. Here the students acquire wisdom and experience in carving cattle. We predict that Elon will turn out many trained butchers. . t the Young Ladies ' hall the girls on the first and second floors learn to live. In tJie laboratory undi ' rneatb their common sense and exjierience is appre- ciated and depreciated. In all the ilormitorics the highest standards (jf behaviur are exacted. If a student enters the front of one of these btiildings without looking upward to slmw his respect, a I(jyal Elonite will dam])en the dust on his brain.

Illustrated with free-hand photographs. This story can be seen in motion pictures as it has been dramatized by The Opaque Film Co., Incorporated. By Bred Fuxnvhrat The Runaniuck dramatic fraternity on last Thursday evening presented the culmination of their seven rehearsals in the field of the drama. They presented The Merchant of X ' enice in five acts and nine intermissions. We, in order to understand the gigantic propensities of this tragetic movement, must review the situation for a moment of time and a paragraph of print. Who first thought of mobilizing this compendium of dramatic talent is not known. But the idea liecame rampant and soon the forces were in the field of poesy. Runamuck backed the talent of her cherished children and heljied the dramatic club overcome all the difficulties that Ijefogged their way. A temporary stage was erected in I ' .eauty Podwin ' s tobacco barn. Scenery was furnished by local conscription. This theatre enjoys the distinction of being the only theatre in America in which all the .spectators have boxes. (Soap boxes.) A gallery was erected, but this fell while being inspected by Boot Peale and lowered him in his own estimation. I entered the theatrical barn at 7:15 I ' . M. and noticed a few details while waiting for the curtain to rise. The Dobbin Jews Harp Orchestra (consisting of three Jews with hari)s and an Ethiopian lad with an accordion with genuine Ger- man silver trai)pings) furnished excellent music. .-Xmong other selections were " Turkev in the Straw " and " Liza Jane. " The cast of characters and Dramatis Personae had been written on the liarn wall with cli.ilk. The cast was: Till; Mi:K( iiAXT ii- ' i; .n i ( i-: Duke of X ' enice lioot I ' eale Antonio Prance Brawn Bassanio R. M. Hedding Gratiano Rene tlainey Lorenzo II. lialibv Shylock .Marrcn Wulloch Young Gobbo Dappy O ' Hoom Portia Miss Femestin Ogloom Xerissa Miss Senny Jith [essica Miss I ' oc DiKme Paije Onr hunJrrJ sixly-ane 119$ PMIPSICL.I ELON COLLEGE Payc Onr hundred sixty-livo aT5i=M=i mm sB Squire Jill Hones, city constable, now smoked out the mosquitoes and bull bats and lit tlie lanterns which served as footlights. The heroine fainted from stage fright before the curtain went up but recovered while the audience was assembling. The audience wore such variegated evening attire, I thought, at first, that it was a masquerade affair, until an urchin told me that they were all in their Sunday best. At last the curtain went uj) amid the cheers and Prance Ikawn. as Antonio, after swallowing his heart for the fourth time, assumed a blue Monday air of vmmitigated melancholy and spoke tlie famous lines beginning. " In sooth I know not why I am so sad — " and the show was on. Nothing of general interest happened until in the scene between I ' ortia and Xcrissa : they both forgot their lines and extemporized in the following manner : Xerissa : Do you not remember, Portia, the gentleman and scholar named Blackberry that went by here last summer on his mule ? Portia : Yes, the sweet, lank lad who broke father ' s tyi)ewriter. Xerissa : The very same. I hear that he has a new jjink striped shirt and is coming to visit you at Christmas. Portia ( with a sigh ) : Let us hope so. Scene III. Act one was given with vim and vigor. Marren Wulloch makes an unusually good Shylock. He appeared in a blue damask Gaberdine, with a long beard and unkempt hair. His eyes were very fierce while dealing with the Christians. When Bassanio went after Antonio he stumbled and tore down six yards of scenery which gave us a good view of I oot Peale arranging his wig for the Trail scene. When Antonio returned he and Shylock made the fire fly — Jew against Christian. The choosing of the orchestra was unfortunate for one of the Jew ' s jumped up and yelled, " Go it, Shy ' .ock. " The constable interceded and kept the audience from lynching the unfortunate expounder of Orpheus. The bargain for three thousand ducats against a pound of flesh was made, both parties declar- ing that they " were content i ' faith to seal unto the Iwnd. " Dappy O ' Hoom as young (iobbo gave an excellent interpretation of Shake- speare ' s vociferous clown. This gentleman will become an actor of great repute if he will only work. His monologue alone was uncomparable. . t Belmont, Hedding came to choose the casket for his bride. The dramatic fraternity were unable to get caskets from the local undertaker as the epidemic of swamp jaundice six years before had used up his supply. So cigar boxes served as caskets and after trying for the third time Bassanio hit the right one and the bride was his. Miss F " ernestin ( gloom plays an excellent Portia, but her scholarly ways do not quite coincide with our ideal of an Italian gentlelady. She was so interested in Bassanio ' s getting the right casket that she cried seventeen beautiful stage tears which were well received by Xerissa ' s handkerchief. This scene con- tained so much quiet beauty that we hated to see it draw to the early close it did, by a hound dog from over in Isle of Wigiit county attacking and assaulting a young Irish collie which was sleeping in the orchestra C ' rcle. The dogs were parted after a twenty-minute fight, but the beautiful scene was irremediabh ' ruined. because Bassanio was so hoarse froiu hodering for the collie pup that be cnuldn ' t talk. Meanwhile the poor merchant .Xntnnio was being dogged in X ' enice bv the unrelenting Shylock. His ships were plying on the ocean and had not come into SELON COLLEGES Page One hunJreii sixty-three il9i PMIPSICI-i port. Shylock liad an oath tliat lie would carve Antonio ' s carcass, so we see our friend in dire straits. Now a letter to Bassanio informed him that if he wished to see his dear friend while he was still all together he must rush to Venice. This he did after a loving farewell to Miss Portia. Portia and Nerissa followed later dressed as doctors of the civil law. Portia wished to save the life of the best friend of her husbanil because she had heard that he could sing beautifully and she wished him to sing at Nerissa ' s wedding. For she was to wed the intrepid Gratiano. While the characters are on the road to ' enice we will watch Lorenzo and Jessica elope from the home of Shylock. Xovv romantic Lorenzo came at night to steal the gentle Jessica. The constable forgot to blow out the footlights and this midnight elopement had the brilliancy of a noon-day picnic. This was against all rules of art and leaves a blot on the dramatic fraternity ' s ' scutcheon. ( )ther- wise the loving pair did wonderfully well, although Miss Doone was a little tall for Babby to enfold with his encircling arm and cape when she left her father ' s house. We heard from a gentleman sitting back of us that the couple were lovers in real life. This accounted for the excellence of their acting. They were on fa- miliar ground. And now we are readv for the trial scene which took place after the con- stable had quieted an unruly spectator named Geeter Penn wdio had come down from Norfolk to see the play. He was trying to flirt with some of the young ladies and Jill Bones chastised him severely with a yellow switch. One of the ushers now placed a tar bucket firmly over the head of a gentleman who could not enjoy the opera without snoring. Then all was well. 3 ELON COLLEGE I Page One hundred sixty-jour X=]Ei The scenery for the famous trial scene presented to the pubHc eye a very good view of a court room of the twelfth century. Boot Peale made an excellent Duke, so graceful and dignified in all his movements. The Duke entered the court followed by a large herd of Magnificoes. After assuming different ungrace- ful attitudes, the court was in session. The dramatic club under the suiiervision of Sydney Hazelhurst vim Steuhendale had altered the text sliglitlw and I give it as presented in Runamuck. Trial Scene.

Shylock: I cannot, () upright judge. As Spoony Rosenbaum says — Duke (sharply): Xo more Jewish quotations in tiiis court. Proceed. Baldrazor: Antonio, do you wish to die? Antonio: Yes, but of old age. Baldrazor: You ' ve the right spirit. L-sten, Shylock : The quality of mercy is not strained. It comes as a Sunday shower at a wedding. It is twice blessed. It blesseth him that gives and him that takes. ' Tis greatest in the largest. It becomes the throned monarch better than his wig. Two moons can rise over the — (Miss Ogloom here forgot her speech and there was perfect quiet until the ever resourceful Shylock took up the thread of the argument. ) Shvlock: My deeds upon my head, I crave the law.

Antonio: Good bye, Bassanio. I am armed and well i)repared. Give me your hat lifter. It comforts me so much to hold your hand. Fare you well, ririeve not that I nuist die for you. Tell your wife that I cannot come to Belmont to visit you all. Xever cpiarrel with her even though she become a suffragette. Never charge too much for the produce of your truck farm ami pay your taxes. Now I go on that long journey from which no traveler ever returns. (Antonio goes out and kneels before old Shylock.) At this point the whole audience broke down and wept. .And lo ! the Ethiopian in the orchestra led all the rest. He declared with the tears streaming down his cheeks that if he had only brought his brass knucks along he would have helped that Jew a considerable piece on his way to Utopia. The weeping was so fierce that " all the dogs woke up and thinking that some one in their family had died while thev were asleep they helped to swell the chorus of grief.

Look over there at liassanio crying an ocean of tears. Can you not have mercy? Shylock (to .Antonio) : Take oft your collar, you painted nuiskrat.

Shylock, rising and trembUng: Sweet gentlemen, give me thrice the liond and I will be content. Duke: No. You shall not have one red cent. Vnu are sentenced to be Mayor of this town for ninety-nine years. Constable Jill Bones, who has gone behind the scenes, now marches dut anil after yelling, " Sic Semper Tyrann ' s, " drags out the crusheil Shyluck by the beard. Antonio and Bassanio crv on each other ' s coat lapels. Duke: Court ' s adjourned. Can ' t you all come over to my house to dinner? Got a 6 ounce ' possum and taters. (All the Magnificoes accept.) Bassanio and Gratiano now give two brass rings which their wives have given them to the young lawyer and his clerk. And having thus eased his con- science, Bassanio walks to front of the stage and says : Now that the merchant is free, I ' ortia, I ' m coming to thee. Curtain. . ct . W ' lvle the court scenerv was being remnved and Portia ' s garden at Belmont set up, an interesting political argument took place over at the cold stove. ( )ne old man hit an older man on the head with the poker for saying that Runamuck was governed by a trust. The older man after he became conscious forgave the younger man on the grounds that as he was his son, he had beaten him enough as a child to make up for this. Jessica and Lorenzo had been at Belmont during the Trial Scene. Although they were married they were still in love, and th- ' s opening scene was very beauti- ful, due to the extinction of all the footlights except four which had their chim- neys stained with poke berries. These shed a profusion of delicately tinted shadows on the lovers. Lorenzo said : " The sole-encircling satellite of this terrarum orbis, with its ineiTablv beautiful retinue of twinkling companions, diffused its ethereal waves with the very abandon of nnuiificence, permeating the entire firmament with its pervasive luminosity. In such an ambrosial night as this, the matchless breezes (lid press their osculatory offerings on the ' zenith-pointing ' oaks of the centuries. Big Slumber folded her tremulous fingers about all, and unbroken cjuietude held dominion. A most ( )lynipic night was this, such as the legendary Troilus sur- mounted the forbidding walls of Troy, and sighed his soul toward the Grecian domiciles where Cressid lay in the darkness. " Th ' s scene was so beautiful and contained so many heart-entrapping epithets that a chronic and confirmed bachelor on the front row was forced to leave the tobacco barn, his whole being shaking with sobs. Now Portia and .N ' er ' ssa came home, no worse for their adventures. Gobbo, who had been locked up in the morgue, now comes in as a messenger. So Gobbo comes in yelling : lELON COLLEGE Page One hundred sixty-eight mas Sine qua non, sine qua non, here comes my lord Bassanio and the noble merchant prince Antonio whose ships have come into port richly laded, sine qua non, sine qua non. (Exeunt.) Enter Bassanio and Antonio and their servants. Portia: Welcome home, my lord. Give me the ring I gave you. Bassanio: I ' m sorry, sweet one. but I sold it for a load of cabbages and blackberries. Portia: All right, you ' re forgiven. I always liked blackberries. Everybody embraces everylxxly else e.xcept .AiUniiici wlm turns his back politely and gazes at the moon. Gratiano: Say. Xerissa. I threw that brass ring away that vou gave me. Xerissa : Here it is on my finger, you naughty boy, did you not know that I was the clerk and Portia the expounder of the law? Xow you shan ' t go to the inauguration in ' ashington unless you take me along. Gratiano : I f the potato crop is good you shall go. Portia walks to the front of the platform and says the following: Gentle audience : Although this is our first play. Its fame will last for many a day. We know we ' ve acted very well. As any blockhead could tell. We hope you will come to our next show. But let me tell you before you go. That we ' ve enjoyed your attention. Mure than we are able to mention. The curtain falls amid slight applause which increased as the audience began to wake up and collect their senses. The applause increased until the rafters rang and any critic within ten miles could sa - tliat the first production of the Kuna- muck dramatic fraternity was a grand and unparalleled success.
