An Important Question
Dear Friend: The time has come
when I must ask you a question, the
contemplation of which has caused
me many a sleepless night, bitter tears
of anguish and corresponding days of
anxiety. This is a subject of which I
hesitate to mention to any one, as I
know the whole community is upset
at the present time by this same ques
tion which agitates me.
Many a happy home has been broken
up by this same cause, and I, too, the
young, must share the burden of this
wicked, uncouth world. I dare not
even communicate my state of mind to
my folks, as they are so skeptical
about such things. In my distress I
turn humbly and appeal to you for
It may surprise you to know that I
would consult you upon such an im
portant subject, which only my heart
should know, but like the morning
rbxvn, the whole must come to light
and the public sooner or later, so I ask
your friendly advice and I know you
will understand me better than I can
I am asking a great favor of you,
andl, while you are considering this I
wish you to set aside all cares, al.! so
cial joys and p)roperly considler the
question. I hate to ask it, but must
come to the point:
Do you think it is time to take off
my winter underwear?
After considering the question
closely, let me hear from you.
Your true friend,
Mr. J. S. Hoey, who has been ill in
the infirmary, is improving rapidly.

C. M. GALLOWAY.
It is always a pleasure to the faculty
and students of the University to
learn that any of the alumni of the
college are doing well in life and are
rising to positions of high standing.
Those at the college who were ac
quainted with Mr. C. M. Galloway
were elated a few weeks ago when
they heard of his appointment as pri
vate secretary to Congressman E. D.
Smith. Mr. Galloway has for several
years been connected with The State
paper and distinguished himself as
press operator, telegraph editor and
news editor on the paper. In 1899 he
entered the Law Department of the
college, but owing to his heavy work
on the paper he was obliged to give up
the study of law until 1905 when he
re-entered the University, finishing in
'07 with the grade of proficiency.
While in college he took an active part
in the literary work of the Euphradian
Society and was a true Euphradian
until he finished his course, and has
still a warm spot in his heart for his
alma mater and his society. Mr. Gal
loway won many friends while in col
lege and was an admirer of Col. Jo
seph Daniel Pope, under whom he had
the honor of taking the study of law.
His work as private secretary to
Congressman Smith will begin the
last of this month, and he will be in
Washington during the session of
Congress. Mr. Galloway will also
take the law course at George Wash
ington University while at the capi
Those who know the ability of the
secretary chosen by Congressman
Smith are satisfied that he will fill this
p)osition with honor to himself, and
they wish him much success in the fu

"AS YOU LIKE IT"
BYFOURTH ENGLISH CLASS.
There was presented in the chapel
last evening by the Fourth English
class, the most elaborate production
of Shakespere's "As You Like It" that
the world has ever witnessed. It was
gratyd, superb, magneefeesaunt. There
was absolutely no room for improve
ment, though there was plenty for an
audience. Mr. Dargan, Mr. Girar
deau, Mr. Murray and Mr. Sheppard
were vociferously applauded all
through the play for their beautiful
display of nerve. At the end of the
first act, in response to the prolonged
applause, Mr. Sheppard stepped be
fore the curtain and delivered a short
speech, the title of which was,
"Shakespere Compared with Me."
Shakespere won second place. To the
few who were not present at the per
formance the following criticism will
be appreciated, probably more than

Mr. Girardeau as Jaques acted his
part well. In the beginning of the so
liloquy he substituted a few phrases
which had the originals discarded to

exception of this, the part was disap
Of course Mr. Manning played Or
lando. His acting in this part, how
ever, was very inferior to his parlor
portrayal of Romeo.
Mr. Sheppard was very successful
at Touchstone, not that he possesses
the natural wit of this clown, but be
cause lie possesses the natural make
up. Mr. Sheppard's Shakesperean
repertoire is very large. He has
played the ghost and the grave-digger
in Hamlet, Macbeth's horse, and other
strong parts. His best role, however,
is that of poor Yorick's skull, as in
this he has no speaking part.
Mr. Murray, who last year played
the mob in Julius Coesar, was quite
satisfactory as 'William, the country
lout. H-e used no make-up whatever
and his acting wvas perfectly natural.
Rosalindi and Celia, Shakespere's
two most beautiful wvomen, wvere por
trayed by Miss Bowen and Miss Yar

cially good, though in the other re
spect they wvere admirable.
The play, from a financial stand
point, was a success. The proceeds of
the per formance, amounting to 15
cents, were contributed towards a
fund now being raised for the purpose
of getting Crom Murray a hair-cut.
Later on, the play will be repeated
for the benefit of 'o9 Seniors, who will
soon be leaving college and will be
without any visible means of support.
There will also be other theatricals at
the University. It is being rumored
around that Mr. John Bernard-Shaw
Sheppard will soon put on a dramati
zation of "Himself by Himself," and
will himself play the leading part. We
do not doubt the truthfulness of this
rumor, as Mr. Sheppard can be seen
daily in his room practicing new
poses before his glass. While we
would naturally deduce that a drAma
from such a character would make a
very strong play, it is feared that the
play, like the character, will be so
strong, so serious, so intensely serious,
that it will run over into the burlesque,
and, instead of impelling tears, will,
like the character, provoke side-split
ting laughter. Or, as Byron said, "If
I laugh at any mortal thing, 'tis that
I may not weep."

"Chicken's" Name Changed
"Chicken" turned up at the break
fast table the other morning minus a
front tooth. This especial tooth was
remarkably noticeable. It was a reg
ular gold mine and could be seen a
block away when "Chicken" smiled,
which he did often. However, the
golden tooth is no more.
Many and various are the rumors
as to what "Chicken" did with the
tooth or how he lost it. One report
has it that Covar knocked it out with
his elbow while applauding vigorous
ly the other night at the show. Anoth
er rumor is that "Chicken," who is
habitually broke, lent his rich tooth
