First Semi-Annual Programme.
Tho chapol has not hold in many a day
ii larger and more pleased audience than tho
ono which listened to tho first semi-annual
program of the Society Building Associa
tion on tho ovoning of October 26. Tho
program was dividod into two parts; tho
first of miscellaneous mako-up, and tho
second, consisting of John Kendrick Bang's
successful farce, A Proposal Under Dijficul-
Miss Maude Hammond played most pleas
ingly Rubonstoin's melody in F, and a com
position of Padorowoski. Miss Hammond
has a very delicate touch and brings out
woll tho qualitios of tho pieces she attomps
President Axling then sot forth in a short
speech tho aims of tho joint socioty organi
zation. In a word, ho maintained that tho
societies stood for democratic culture, socia
bility and refinement. Mr. Axling has a
good stago presonco and a forceful manner
of speech. Ho loft tho audience favorably
impressed with tho causo ho advocated.
Mr. Sayor looks small and insignificant
till he begins to draw his bow across the
strings of his violin. Then ho appears a
small sized giant. Everyone was highly
pleased with his solo. Miss Langor proved
herself at home as an accompanist.
Miss Flora Bullock is always entertaining
on tho strgo and her rendition of "The
Coward1 was no exception to tho rule.
Tho oncoro of tho whistling solo by D. N.
Lohmer spoke volumes. Wo are inclined to
think that had tho Spartan who refused to
go hoar tho imitator of a nightingale (see
Plutarch, page 999 Life of Lycurgus or
Prof. Fling) had this Spartan lived in tho
days of Lehmor, ho could not have stayed at
homo, tending tho babies.
Part two was carried through most natur
ally by Miss Elizabeth Thompson as Jennie,
Miss Horn as Dorothy Andrews, Keeno
Abbott as Yardsloy, and Norman Shrove as
Jack Barlow. Tho last two are old stagers,
and it is said that they are just waiting to
flunk before again taking up tho divine
art. Norman Shrove was as natural as
though ho were studying German in Latin
In ropartoo with Yardsloy, he showed tho
versatility with which ho could change his
tones disgusting or happy-go-lucky. Keeno
is always a drawing card. His facial ex
pression is his strong point.
If any ono could have made a better Irish
girl than Miss Thompson, we don't know
her. Tho way she tripped on tho carpet,
the way she flourished her duster, tho way
she twisted her brogue, all marked her as
true emigrant from Erin. No- ono blamed
Hicks for being mad at tho jilt she adminis
tered. Miss Homo looked tho prettiest we have
ever seen her in tho character of Dorothy.
Everyone appreciated the fact that Yards
ley and Barlow were truly at war for a groat
prize. And then that amorous glance which
tho engaged couple lavished on each other
at tho conclusion! What wouldn't you give
for such a glance from a girl?
When we went to press last time there
wasn't a foot-ball man in town. The ubig
lovon" was off on their long trip, and tho
"seconds" were trying issues with Johnson
& Co., of Hastings.
Wo gained by that long trip, not only
considerable money but lots of experience,
and lost nothing as tho men got down to
their school work again in good time.
The game last Saturday at Omaha proved
nothing, as only part of our regular men
played. Because wo didn't make tho score
3600 instead of 36 to 0 tho Bee man said
tho next morning that wo would have to learn
our a-b sc again, but you know Sandy
used to bo a prize fight umpiro, and hasn't
learned tho game yet.
Missouri uMiz-er-y" is the talk now,
and if you want to see tho tallest scrap in
the history of the pigskin get in the special
car tomorrow. Missouri is our weak spot
