MISS EPPING WlitH
Cup Goes to Victor in Hard
Marjorie Campbell Defeated;
Contestants Evenly Matched
and Play Is Wary.
In a safe and sane game Friday night,
Adrienne Epping won the women’s tennis
championship from Marjorie Campbell,
svith a score of 6-4, 11-9. The players
ivere so evenly matched that until the
last point was won, nobody could have
predicted the outcome of the match.
The game began at 6:30 with Miss
Campbell serving. From the start it was
evident that the players were wary of
each other, and afraid to try any smash
ing drives. The first set was 3-1 for
Miss Campbell, but Miss Epping tighten
ed up her defense, and slowly drew
ahead. The games were easy and slow,
and in some oases the ball was returned
nine or ten times before one player or
the other let it go into the net. Neither
player showed any of the speed and
sureness that had characterized her play
big in practice games, and the fifty or
nore people lined up on all sides had no
thrills to make them remember the
The nest set began as the first one
had, with 4-3 for Miss Campbell. The
fames were deuce games, and usually
Miss Campbell had a score of 40-15
jgainst her before she won any game.
There was no attempt at placement on
sither side, just a regular back-and-fortj
:asy safe game.
The set ended 11-9 although it could
sot have been predicted one minute be
fore. It was the longest drawn out game
>f the series.
The result of the doughnut tournament
rives the cup to Miss Epping. hut docs

HE ClljVjR PUT
“The Faithful Shepherdess,”
with Pastoral Setting and
Leading Characters Carry Parts !
A surpassing daintiness and charm of
setting, and unique, quaint costuming
were outstanding characteristics of John
Fletcher’s pastoral, ‘’The Faithful Shep
herdess,” which was produced in Guild
hall Thursday and Friday nights by the
senior dramatic interpretation classes
under the direction of Fergus Reddie,
head of the public speaking department.
The theme of the piece was simple in
the extreme, dealing with the kindly
ministrations of Clorin, the faithful
shepherdess, to troubled lovers who
crossed her path, while she herself re
mained true to her dead love. In the
end her fidelity and goodness prevailed
■and the final curtain fell on a group
of reunited lovers, well satisfied.
Perhaps it was because an idyl of the
17th century has not its former appeal
in these days when the world is living
so rapidly; perhaps because of things'
nowdays. Whatever the cause may
have been, the result was that box
office sales were not so large as might
•have been expected, and the audience
were not overly enthusiastic. They
showed however a very real apprecia
tion of the more than creditable work
of the combined classes in the depart
ment, which under able supervision
planned and executed the costumes and
setting, provided the special music
which accompanied the performance?,
and transformed Guild hall and its
stage into an exquisite bit of the .Spring |
Leading Parts Well Played.
Of the Senior dramatic students who j
played the various roles it is difficult j
to pidk any bright and shining lights.
Hester Hurd who played Clorin, took
almost the first straight part which she
has ever handled and did it well. Her
pure white costume set her apart from
the band of mortal shepherds, making

He Sends Them Back to
Bench on Strikes
Final Score Is 8 to 5—Schade
and Spangler, Rival Field
The Delta Tnu Delta baseball team
took the third ga me of the doughnut
series from the Beta Theta l’i represen
tatives Thursday afternoon by the score
of S to 5. The game was by far the
best yet played in the doughnut league
and was more evenly contested than
the score indicates.
The Betas opened the festivity bj
scoring two runs in the initial inning
on two hits and a couple of boots by
the Delta infield. Collison, twirling for
the Betas, struck out the three Dlt
barters that need him in the first inning
but was unable to keep up the pace.
In the third the Deltas found him for
five runs on three hits and several
Weigel, first man up in the third,
was banned but recovered quickly and
after stealing second and going to third
on Madden's sacrifice scored on an er
ror that allowed Schade to reach first.
From that time on the Delts had little
trouble in solving Cailison’s delivery.
Merily pitched a. good game for the
Delts allowing only five hits. Paul
Spangler spoiled a good chance for the
Betas to tie the score in the fourth
inning when he stuck on third after
Schade had missed Boggs’ fly to right.

Mu Phi to Buy Phonograph
Music for Soldiers.
Silver Tea and Musical Program
to Furnish Necessary
There is a saying and a theory that
music will do more to keep troops
on the cheerful path than any other one
thing except food, and men returning
from the front are emphatic on this
point. In accordance with this. Mu Phi
Epsilon, national women’s musical frat
ernity, has taken upon its own shoulders
part of the burden of supplying the
Allied troops, particularly our own, with
music in its most popular form.
The Mu Phi national is purchasing
phonographs to send to the front and
has allotted to each of its chapters the
task of funishing money with which to
buy the necessary records for the ma
chines. For this cause, members of
the campus chapter will on Saturday
May 4, be hostesses for a silver tea
and musical which will be held at Hen
A program has been arranged by the
members in such a way that the enter

to this program and the best talent
which the talented group contains has

have been planned for the occasion.
