It is a great scheme of education for all of the people from primary to university. It is open to every aspiring youth who may toil along its way. "It required something like fifty years before tho public authorities' had decided that education might bo supported by taxation.

Danville Boys Are Undefeated So Far This Season GAME CALLED AT 3:45 HIT IN "THE AMAZONS" Coach Gill Has Shifted the Line-u- p Pinero Piece Given Before Enthusiastic and Critical Audience By Fred K. Augsburg. Sir Arthur Wing Pinero's "The'Ama-zons- " was presented dn Chapel last night by tho Pliilosophian Literary Society, under tho auspices of the Little Theatre, before an, enthusiastic and critical audience. The piece finds Pinero at his best and thei subtle humor dispensed last night by the playerfolk convulsed the audience wfth laughter. The burden of the comedy of the piece was carried on the shoulders of John Land and Jack Dahringer doing the parts of Galfred Earl of Tween-eway- s and Andre Count de Grival, respectively, Both scored heavily in the interpretation of their roles. Honors among the female contingent by of the cast were shared Margaret Harbison Lucy Smith and Henrietta Rogers as the three sisters Noeline, Wllhemlna and Thomasin. The amusing situations in which "The Amazons" are frequently entangled goes to make an enjoyable plot. Barrington, Fred Houston-Shaw'- s Viscount Litterly was extremely well done and ho never fails to make the most of all his excellent lines. Claribel Kay as Mariam, Marchioness of Castlejordan, who is well remembered for her work in former Stroller productions, did her usual stellar work in this difficult role. Lillian Dalton was well chosen for the role of Sergeant Shuter. Frank Wcdekemper In the part of the' Reverend Roger Minchin, was good at all times. Minor roles of the piece were well taken care of by Robert Bamber, Jack Swearingen and George Rouse. The staging was entirely adequate, considering the arrangement of the platform in ,Chapel. Tho costuming was ornate and correct to the minutest detail. The burden of directing "The Amazons" fell on Professor William Mike-seof the Little Theatre and the success of the pieco is largely attributed to his untiring efforts. The program given last night was the third bill of tho Little Theatre season, tho success of which has long since been assured. -- ll C.
