R. F. D. C. PRESENTS FIRST
PROGRAM LAST MONDAY
The Dramatic Club Bids Fair to Be-

One-Act Plays to Be Given to School
“See here, I will not let you go out

"Don’t be silly, Jack. I am not go-
ing out; JIB going to bed”
On Monday evening, February 26th
the R. F. D. C. held their first program
of the year. To say that is was a suc-
cess would minimize the enjoyment
which the members had, both in the
program and the social hour which fol-
lowed the play. This program was a
dual presentation of the program sched-
uled for the first month, which was
postponed on account of the rain, and
the regular program for February.
The club is doing some real con-
structive work, and this is the first of
a series of activities that will extend
throughout the Spring term.
The curtain rose at seven fifteen, dis-
closing the library room of John Coers’
parsonage. He was an excelent ex-
ample of a holy and reverent minister
of the Gospel, robed in the garments
of his order. It was evident that some
very important office was to be per-
formed, and soon it was perveived that
the ensuing was to be of a matrimon-
The wedding was a good example of
a farce, and many laughs were elicited
by the serious and pompous words
of the minister.
The latter half of the program was
entertainingly given by A. D. Hildreth,
Hershel Hopson, Flo Hooper, Fay Har-
ris and Frank Duke Hightower, in the
form of a one-act play.
The play was well worked out and
showed excellent preparation.
After the program came the social
hour. Hot tamales were served, and
needless to say, they were enjoyed by
The success of this, their first effort,
this year is certainly an encourage-
ment to the dramatic club in its fu-
Those dismissed as “cured” the first
of the week were: Adelaide Campbell,
Annie Ruth Radke, Mary Hargett, Til-
lie Menking, Homer Mathis, John Car-
awon, Ossie Jennings, and Coriene
The present occupants of the girls’
ward are Frances Camus, Esta Mc-
Lanahan, Ivy Davidson, Hazel White,
Anna Goodenough, Jennie B. Harris,
Mary Alice Duncan, and Marguerite
From the list it seems doubtful at all
that all of them could be cared for in
one little ward, but fortunately some-
one is always ready to leave just about
the time someone else is being brought
We have a good joke on A. Weir.
Not having been able to find out, we
are not able to say exactly who he was
hiding from when, he came to the hos-
pital Wednesday evening about nine
o’colck. His courage evidently arose
during the night, for he seemed anx-
ious to leave the next morning. Mrs.
Lusk would have been glad to have
protected him longer, but as he show-
ed no symptoms of illness she could
think of no legitimate excuse for keep-
ing him in bed.
Floy Ashmore is quite ill with influ-
enza. She is being cared for by her
mother at the Ward House.
Miss Kone, of the Training School,
has been absent for several days on ac-
count of the influenza.
The Freshmen party held in the little
Gym last Saturday night, Feb. 24th, was
a party that should not have been
missed by any freshmen. The night was
cool and rainy, just the right kind of
a night for a fish party.
The little Gym was decorated with
streamers of green and gold, which are
the class colors. Little green fish were
hung as omamehts here and there,
about the room.
After eerryone Had arrived all en-
gaged hr games. The winner of the
automobile rhyme contest _ received a
toy automobile and the winner of the
fish contets received a small green tin
Fruit punch was served as refresh-
ments. Everyone present had a joy-
ous time and will hold the party in
memory as one of the memorial occa-
sions of the Freshmen year.
FILM STARS DISCUSS “THE
PRISONER OF ZENDA”
The subject under discussion was
the extraordinary ability of some plain
woman to look positively beautiful on
occasions. Ramon Navarro, who plays
the dashing Rupert of Hentzau in the
“Prisoner of Zenda” at the Palace Mon-
day, listened quietly at the comment and,
though unmarried himself qualified as
a true expert by_ ending the discussion
with the following gem of cynicism:
“You see, everyone knows how won-
derful a woman can look, but it is only
her husband who knows how wonder-
ful it is that she can look so beautiful.”
Mrs. Lloyd Johnson will honor Miss
Julia Pearl Jackson, a bride-elect of
the month, with a large bridal party
You can’t love those today that you
will be loving tomorrow.
