April Frolic Brings to Light His

Big girls and little girls, fat girls and
tliin girls, long girls and short girls,
girls who presented pretty stunts and
girls who gloried in the horror of their
part. I he llaha 11 aba Man and a pretty
ballet girl; Dutch cleansers valiantly
chasing dirt; a trio of naughty waifs
from the bowery; a multitude.of smudgy
babies, all marching solemnly along to
gether this was the grand march at the
April I'Volic. There were two pretty
girls as hollies, all decked with pen
Hants, to lead it, and a ragged child, till
ditl and meanness, brought up the rear,
while in between inarched the girls of
the (adversity, all trying their best to

ceeding marvelously.
I lien came the stunts! The girls who
gave the little shadow play certainly
rivaled the l.adies ol Burgomaster fame
for the stock company honors. If true

at all in guiding their nimble feet.
I he "(rice ( lub" rendered several
charming selections, which were highly
appreciated. \ml the Buggies family
all tried to be so polite from the lanky,

I hroughout the entire program live
large lire crackers stood near the stage,

charmingly a Japanese song.
I he First oration was by W. M. Beals,
whose subject on “Heretics,” was well
developed and splendidly delivered.
Charles Robinson delivered a very dra
matic oration on “The Coast League,”
comparing the modern civilization with
Grecian, and closing with an appeal as
to which one the American people shall
choose.
Miss Alice Stoddard’s oration on “Ac
tion, the Criterion of Character.” was
an appeal to action, not indifference.
The keynote of her speech was that great
men had always made their path against
all obstacles.
Miss Naomi Williamson spoke next
on the subject of the “Relation of Re
ligion to the Educated and Scientific
Men.”
Miss Willetta Wright gave the lasr
woman’s oration. Her subject concerned
the Responsibility of the College Woman
Towards Life. Miss Wright’s oration
was delivered with more than usual
presence.
I lie second oration on the subject of
"Heretics" was delivered by F E. Dun
ton. It dealt with the relation of think
ing men to the progress of h.r wo<M
and the persecution to which trend ( I'
new scientific theories of all ages have
always suffered. This concluded 'in
program for the evening.

BIG CROWD NEEDED
FOR PULLMAN MEET
Financial Deficit in Track Must
Be Made Up Then, Says
Manager Espy
Washington State College will go up
aginst the Oregon hunch of recorrd
breakers next Friday at 2:00.
Bill Hayward, the veteran Oregon
trainer, says: “I consider Pullman team
the hardest track squad in the North
west to beat. The team has not only
many individual stars, but is very well
balanced. We will have to hustle to beat
them, but if the Oregon men display the
same form they showed against O. A. C.
1 think we can do it.”
Manager Espy is depending upon this
meet to make up the financial deficit
which track is now facing. Attend
ance at yesterday’s meet did not come
up to expectations. Though the girls
supported it well, it was noticable that
few men were there. Espy hopes to
arouse enough interest in this close con
test to have a full attendance not only of
college folk, hut of townspeople as well.
