The Hulls Direct a Novel Entertainment for the Benefit of Piano Fund.

Pacific College's Debating Team Loses Contest by Decision of 2 to 1.

Many people with voices, either musical or otherwise, gathered with the Hulls on the evening of May 1st, at Wood-Mar Hall, to renew acquaintance with some of the old-time songs. Beginning with "America." they sang eight or nine old favorites, such as "Annie Laurie," "My Old Kentucky Home," "Dixie" and "Blue Bells of Scotland." Not least enjoyable of all was the singing of a round "Scotland's burning," which brought smiles and much noise from every one present. The singing was led by Prof. Hull and music furnished by Mrs. Hull, at the piano, Ro9s Miles cornet, and Lloyd Edwards, Frank Sharp and Roy Lyle violins. During the evening Prof. Hawkins gave a reading and a clever pianologue entitled, "You Can't Play Every Instrument in the Band." The string quartet, composed of Prof, and Mrs. Hull, Mr. Lyle and Mr. Sharp, made its initial appearance and delighted the audience with its rendering of "Barcarolle," from "Tales of Hoffman."

Pacific's debate team, consisting of Delbert Replogle and Lloyd Edwards journeyed to Albany, May 13, where they met Albany's debaters, McKee and Parker in a wordy battle. The debate was interesting throughout, the interest reaching a climax when the decisions of two of the judges had been read, one for the affirmative and one for the negative and the final decision Y.

At a banquet of the club held the 29th of last month, at which all the members were present, with Presider.t and Mrs. Pennington as the guests of honor, and friends of the members as very honorable guests, one would

Judging from observation of some other colleges, the students of P. C. enjoy a blessing which some students do not have the privilege of enjoying, and that is the blessing of interesting and helpful chapel exercises. We can never feel when the chapel bell rings that we know exactly the order of the service which is to follow, batr-we-de know that it will be interesting and instructive, and that we will come away feeling that we have been benefited, not only for the time being, but for our whole lives. We feel that the influence of our chapel exercises is something for which we cannot be too thankful. That the whole student body, in a measure, appreciates this is shown by the manner in which they conduct themselves in the chapel and the attention which they give to the exercises.

Old clothes, floppy sun hats and implements of every sort used since prehistoric ages were in evidence on May 15. Faculty and students alike unbent themselves in an effort to beautify our campus. Squads of men worked diligently on the drheway and parkway, in the canyon and around the field, while the ladies, armed with anti-dandelion weapons, ridded the front lawn of its weeds. At noon a sumptuous repast was spread on the lawn in front of Kanyon Hall and a pleasant hour was spent in feasting and recreation. As this goes to press the baseball and stunts are beginning. We wish it were possible to print an extended account of the feature of the day—a ladies' baseball game—college girls versus academy girls. Under the leadership of Elsie Reed for the college and Helen Ellis for the academy, we know it will be an exciting affair. A baseball game between a team composed of Gulley, "Rep" and the faculty men and a team from the rest of the men in school also promises great interest. In addition to the baseball games, an obstacle race, a walking race (for Mrs. Hodgin's special benefit) and other stunts will be staged. Owing to a delay in publication, we are enabled to give an account of the game. At 3:30 the college bell was rung and the industrious workmen gathered together on the baseball field to witness a game between Gulley, the seniors, the faculty men and a team picked from the other men in school, which resulted in a score of 5 to 2 for the latter. Then followed the big feature of the day, a baseball game in which the college girls defeated the academy girls by a score of 16 to 15. Despite hands blistered by harsh anti-dandelion weapons, the girls gripped the bat with a vengeance and staged a game which, judging from the noise of the throng of rooters on the side lines, was exciting in the extreme- Although there were the usual cries of "Kill the umpire!" Miss Sutton proved a fair and impartial judge of "balls" and "strikes." This only reveals one more of many abilities which P. C. girls possess, and several of them have expressed themselves as hoping they will have further opportunity to display this one in the future.


It happened on a balmy spring evening. Students and teachers had gathered together to partake of the evening meal. The hum of voices and frequent bursts of laughter mingled with the sound of silverware touching china and glass. But the soft, glinting rays of the setting sun disclosed one table at which only two were seated, engaged in a low-toned conversation of nothings, such as sometimes occupies the time of college youth. With a melting look and in a tone full of supp r e s s e d emotion, he a s k e d , "Won't you have some catsup?" Her voice was low and sweet as she answered, "No, thank you, I don't believe I care for any." His face fell with disappointment, then, lifting his head, he said in a chilling voice, "Then you can never live im my house." The arrival of others saved the dormitory from witnessing what might have been one of the saddest scenes ever enacted within its walls.


Fifteen or eighteen girls as sembled Wednesday noon and after brief discussion organized a Hikers' Club. Norma Harvey was elected president, Mary Pennington, secretary, and Helen Ellis and Zoe Hibbs were appointed as chairman of committees to plan the semi-weekly walks. The club was formed partly to meet the demand of the young women for some form of physical activity and partly because the girls just naturally enjoy walking. The organization is under the auspices of the Social Service Committee of the Y. W. C. A. RECITAL
