RIVERTON AND VARSITY PLAY
TO TIE IN MEDIOCRE GAME
Vars ‘ Breaks ‘Through Opponents’
Vead d' After Messy Scrimmage
Disorganized scrappy playing on a some-
what slippery field resulted in a 4-4 tie be-
tween Riverton and Varsity last Satur-
day. Though Riverton held the lead through-
out the first half, neither team exhibited
*speed or headwork and at the end they
At right wing Miss MacMahon proved
the swaftest of her team, dribbling the
length of the field with one hand on her
stick, and passing to the center for.the first
goal of the game. This play was repeated
and a second goal made by Miss Mac-
Mahon herself. Varsity, rushed off its feet
at first, gradually got its bearings, and
clever clearing by E. Anderson at right
wing and a pass to D. Lee at center earned
Varsity’s first goal, bringing the score—to
2-1 in Riverton’s favor at the end of the
half. F. Begg and V. Brokaw on the left
were rather weak and frequently shot into
the opposing fulls.
continual hammering at Varsity’s ai
in which G. Rhoads mdde some quick saves,
gave Riverton another tally at the start of
the second half. On one of these E. Ander-
son once more sped down the field, but the
forward line failing to follow in, the ball
was lost to the visitors who again made it
good. A period of open scrapping all over
the field followed in which there was fruit-
less lunging and poor hitting.. A.. Nicoll,
changed to left inside, combined with F.
Begg for .a Varsity goal. H. Rice, at full-
back, frequently extricating the ball from
Riverton’s attack, dribbled almost up to the
twenty-five-yard line and shot the ball to
A. Nicoll who pushed it in. Varsity often
played out of position, but in a corner at
the end F. Begg shot | in the goal that tied
the score. :

MAETERLINCK AND SHAW PLAYS SKILLFULLY PRESENTED
Sophomores Scores Suctess in “Interior” and “Androcles
and the Lion,” Given for Freshman Class
Specially Contributed by Miss Dorothy Shiply, ’17
Tragedy with a cynical touch in the last
line, and satire with a few patches of
morality in it offer as sharp a contrast as
can well be imagined, and obviously that
is what the Sophomore Play Committee
wanted when they chose Maeterlinck’s “In-
terior’ and Shaw’s “Androcles and the
Lion” as the plays to be given to 1925.
The Sophomoric wagon was clearly hitched
to the proverbial star in choosing the first
play. A scene without action in which all
the interest comes from a recited story and
from watching the faces—of four silent
characters presents a colossal task to actors
with few stage and scenery facilities, who
have to produce illusions of age and sex,
as well as the illustion’ of the story. On
the whole they made an excellent effort.
The old man never lost the feeling of his
part and his intensity got the play across
far better than might have been expected.
The setting was excellent and the charm of
the family of the interior, helped the old
gentleman to a great degree. The costumes
were extrethely pretty, the fact that they
did not belong to a special period adding to
their effect. Walking for the old seemed
to have been more than usually halting,
but there may have been gout; who knows?
Of the other characters, Mary was ey
‘| ticularly good in her trembling fear and
the others were adequate. The play is an
exceedingly difficult one for college per-
formers, but the results really seemed to
repay the work the cast had put in it, and
the audience really enjoyed it.
“Androcles” was a howling success, and
all the Vestal Virgins would have clapped
for more had they been there. 1924 de-
serves the credit of having made it un-
usually perfect for a college performance.
The Lion’s behavior was all that Androcles
insisted it must be. His noble roar and
his expression were inimitable. His last
wink took the whole audience into his
confidence and betrayed him for what he
was—a very subtlé beast and a joyous.
Androcles’ beard sat well on him, and his
poetic language exactly suited his ideas.
His shrew was scarcely tamed and his
happy escape was saddened for—tost—of
us by thoughts of terrible aftér life. After
all—was life worth it? Lavinia was quite
sufficient to pierce the handsome captain’s
heart, though one did wish that Shaw
hadn’t made her moralize so much. The
Captain was one of the best done char-
acters, and his very gorgeousness was melt-
ing to the audieree. Caesar was. beautiful
but ineffectual with the Lion, and less
stately than his subordirrate officer. His
costume~ was excellent: The lion-maned
Ferrovious should also be mentioned for
his excellent heroic-comic representation
of a difficult part. The rest of the
scenery and costumes wére done with ac-
curacy, taste and-ingenuity—the beggar in-
deed was almost too realistic. Let us hope
then, that when the Romaf¥ matrons packed
their children off to) the matinee that the
little Romans sow something even half as
delightful as “Androcles and the Lion’—
even if they didn’t, maybe they found some-
thing like it in the sweet bye and bye.

Senior Banner Hung on Gym
Victorious in the second game of the
first-team hockey firials, the Seniors
‘hung their dark blue banner on the
~“gymmnasitim yesterday afternoon, for
the first time in their College career.
Close scrapping on the slippery field
left the score 0-0 when the whistle blew
at the end of the first half. M. Tyler,
who consistently did good work for
the Dark: Blue, broke the dead-lock
with a clean goal shot from the circle’s
edge. Rushing the “ball through the

BRITISH WAR MOTHER PLANTS

Lunches in Pembroke With Escort of .
Retired British Officers 8
Mrs, Amelia McCudden, the British wat
mother who came to attend the burial of
the unknown soldier in Arlington Cemetery
November 11, visited Bryn Mawr last Wed-
nesday. The wife of the British consul
general, Mrs. ‘Campbell, i Mrs. Bellac,
president of the Philadelphi#War Mothers,
accompanied Mrs, McCudden’s party, which
is composed of Miss Kathleen McCudden,
Miss Blanche Phillips and Captain Moyses
Stevens, Lieutenants Frederick Kersley and
Gordon Stuart Ellam, retired. British
Arriving.in Bryn Mawr_-at noon, the vis-
itors were met by Mrs. Alys Russell and.
several wardens who escorted them over
the campus. Mrs. McCudden and_ her
daughter found the gymnasium especially
interesting, said one of the hostesses. After
lunching in Pembroke, where the students
cheered the British delegation and sang
several Varsity songs for them, the party
was met by President Thomas and taken
to plant a tree on the campus near the
joining of Pembroke and Rockefeller Halls.
“May this tree flourish and may it _increas¢€
the friendly relations between our two,
countries,” said Mrs. McCudden after
shovelling a little’ earth around the roots.
President Thomas thanked Mrs. McCudden
for planting the tree, and requested that
the students sing “Thou Gracious Inspira-
tion” to close the ceremony.
Wears Four Service Stars
' “Mrs. McCudden was very simple and
direct,” said one of her Bryn Mawr host-
esses, “and spoke quite-naturally of the
three sons and the husband she lost in the |
war, in whose memory she wears a four-
starred brooch.” Mr. McCudden while not
in active service worked under the British
Government during the war and while trav-
elling from work in the railway carriage
he was pushed to the door, and finally
crowded out and thrown under the wheels.
After leaving Bry” Mawr the- British
party was taken to see the English hockey,
“I am. sorry they beat Bryn Mawr,” said
Mrs. McCudden, “but I hope. we wit see
them win today.”
“T. like America very much, ” Mrs. Me- .
Cudden said to,a News reporter, “and I
would like to stop here if it weren’t that
I have another son and daughter in Eng-
land. I expect to go back in another week
or two: Our trip was to take about a.
month. from the timé we left home.” At
lunch Mrs. McCudden was delighted with

If Mr, Hughes had had time when he

ting what we asked. for.

tions in the Far East which are re-

The Conference was opened with ac-
tion toward the limitation of armaments
so immediate that the startled world is
just getting back its breath. On Satur-
day Mr. Hughes made his proposal that
Japan, Great Britain, and the United
States—should—-scrap sixty-six. capital

day of ten years. On Tuesday Great
Britain and Japan accepted the proposa
for discussion and a resolution was in-
troduced into Congress for stopping
work on nine battleships and six cruisers.
On Wednesday China made -ten pro-
posals relating to. her territorial integ-

Man More or Less!
As a sagacious undergraduate once re-|,
marked, “every man that comes to Bryn
Mawr is a lover for no one but a lover
would come.” For the treatment he suffers
is little short of .brutal; in the first place
there is nothing to do with him but put
him in the showcase, which is exactly what
the name implies, or lead him over the
campus where every window is filled with
gaping danisels in various stages of des-'

but a freak; for without adopting: the
Lady’s Home Journal or Youth Compan-
ion’s attitude toward “the opposite sex” no
one can deny that they are “healthy, norm
and stimulafing companions.”
Bryn Mawr has always tried to be a
leader; she stood for suffrage, women’s
rights.and emancipation in their day: Now,
to quote the New York Times, “feminine
defiance and independence are antique, and
-the vine-is again ready to cling to the oak,”
and we must not be in the rear. «
Perhaps eventually she will reach the
middle course and a golden time come when

. Oxygen for Sundays
Is the open air tabooed at Bryn Mawr
on Sundays? Perhaps not; yet a ‘question
such’ as this can be answered in no other
way than by observed facts, and these facts
go to prove that no matter how much time
may be spent in out-of-door sports during}
the week, on Sundays athletics of any sort
are banned. Finding no-means for’ health-
ful recreation it is hardly to be wondered
at that” so many fritter away the better
part of the day in gossip, breakfast parties
and teas, mainly because people must re-
lieve the monotony of the day and find no
other way of doirig it. Riding is an ex-
ception to this, yet it is not open to every-
one because it entails expense.and a cer-.
tain knowledge of horsemanship. Is there
any reason that this opportunity should be
open only to the lucky few and that ‘the
-less fortunate ' should not be. able to in-

SEES SEED OF FUTURE WAR IN °
CAUCASIAN RULE OF WORLD
“Make Abolition of Wars Guiding Star in
Politics,” Mrs. Catt Begs
“In all the world’s history nothing so
striking has-been done as: our nation’s offér
to scrap millions of dollars’ worth of un-
built ships,” Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt
declared in Taylor Hall last Thursday eve
ning. This lecture on “International Poli-
cies” was the fourth of a series of five
lectures on political’ subjects given under
the Anna Howard Shaw Foundation. —
“The seed of the next war lies in the
‘fact that one-sixth, of the population of
the world controls five-sixths.” ‘Tilustrat-
ing her points with maps, Mrs. Catt showed
how, through all the course of history, “the
ubiquitous Caucasian had everywhere staked
his claims for posterity’ until he now con-
trols an overwhelmingly large portion of
the world. “The-ext step in human evol
tion must result from the contest betwe
Caucasian and Asiatic races.” Control and
vision and the spirit of co-operation must
shape our international policies if we are to
avoid deadly enmity with these ‘colored
races, Mrs.'Catt declared. “If wars are to
end there must be behind. every measure
for peace the same press of public opinion
that backs the Washington Conference.
Popular opinion hag, made every delegate
there realize that his welcome home de-
pends on his backing radical measures to
limit arms. ;
“Let abolition of wars be our guiding
star .in politics,” said. Mrs, Catt. “From
the little election districts the movement
must come, The voté has the power to re-
make the world. J hope that women will
use their votes to end war.”

SOPHOMORES WIN PLACE IN
. FINALS, DEFEATING 1925
7-2 Score Results from Close
Struggle Between First Teams
Pushing 1925 to a 7-2 victory last Tues-
day, the Sophomore first team secured a
place in the finals against the’ Seniors.
Though 1924 was hard pressed during the
first half, which ended in a tie, speed and
superior teamwork enabled ‘them to over-
whelm their opponents finally. ;
"The encounter was a fierce one from the
béginning. The Red team started a strong
offensive, but E. Howe,*Sophomore center,
proved.too quick for them and scored the
first goal. This was followed almost im-,
mediately by a pretty. shot by M.. Faries,
"24, from the left wing. Then 1925 re-
sponded by a goal.on a corner, despite the
excellent defending of B, Pearson at full-
back. M. Angell, fullback for 1924, played
a persistent game, ‘wrecking all pasting be-
tween -M, Mutch and D. Lee on the Fresh-
men’s forward line. Through a leak in the
Bltie defense, however, M. Mutch pushed in
her second goal for 1925, tieing the score
at the end of the half. '
M. Faries showed herself the mainstay
of the Sophomore offensive, which pre-
vailed throughout the second half. She
shot the first tally after a sudden spurt the
length of the field; the ball then ‘being
passed out to the wing, she cleared the full-
back and scored again. Some hard scrap-
ping ensued in which D. Lee, ’25, figured
largely, but she was not supported effec-
tively by her team, and F. Begg pushed in
the fifth goal for the ‘Blue during the
skirmish, The play then shifted to the left
‘side of the field:and K. Elston, Sophomore
right wing, caged another shot from the
wing. 1925 continued to fight to the end
but could not prevent still another tally
on the corner just before the final whistle.
The line-up was:
1924: M. Faries***, F. Begg*, E. Howe**,
M. Russell, K. Elston*, M. Palache, B.

RED THIRD MAKES END OF LIGHT
BLUE IN THIRD GAME
In a closely contested game the Fresh-
men- third downed the ‘Sophomores in the
deciding match of the preliminaries last
Friday, with a score of 4-3. After win-
ning the first game of the series, the Red
had been defeated last Tuesday, 2-1. .
A swiftly moving match from the start,
the Sophomores took the lead in the first
half with two goals, but in the second half
the Freshmen scored three times almost
immediately and kept the lead till the end.
The strongest part of the Red team was
the forward line, especially S. Anderson,
fast at right wing, while E.. Molitor and

which the Sophomores held the ball near
the Senior circle; but because of scrapping”
and poor shooting were unable to put it in.
Their forwards, especially F. Begg, repeat-
edly lost the pall to the Dark. Blue full-
backs. There was a good deal of fumbling
and falling on both sides, which the state
of the ground made unavoidable.

strength of the Light Blue defense, espe-

‘How Were X-Rays Discovered?
IR James Mackenzie Davidson visited Pichiesor Roentgen to find
out how he discovered the X-rays.
Roentgen had covered a vacuum tube, called a Hittorf or Cidiiaes
tube, with black paper so.as to cut off all its light. About four yards
away was a piece of cardboard coated with a fluorescent compound.
He turned on the current in the tube. The cardboard glowed brightly.
“Sir James asked him:

could give the answer. We all know the practical result.

of lives are saved by surgeons who use the X-rays.
Later on,, one of the scientists in the Research Laboratory of the
General Electric Company became interested in a certain phenomenon —
sometimes observed in incandescent lamps. Others had observed it,
_ but he, like Roentgen, investigated. The result was the discovery .
of new laws governing electrical conduction in high vacuum.
Another scientist in the same laboratory saw that on rhs basis of those
_new laws he could build a new tube for producing X-rays more effec-
tively. This was the Coolidge X-ray tube which marked the greatest
Ba. advance. in the X-ray art since the original discovery by Roentgen.
' Thus, scientific investigation of a strange phenomenon led to the
discovery of a new art, and scientific investigation of another strange

“FUNG KEI LIU GIVES CHINA’S|
HOPES FOR CONFERENCE.
Specially Contributed by Faing Kei Liu, ’22
The eatliest conception of China for
an Ameérican child is that of a country
which, can be reached if he digs deep
enough a hole in the ground. The con-
cept is so popular among children that
it still amuses us when we sing that
“China will catch fire whén the sun‘ goes
down.” Later a ‘more mature concept
comes to take the place of the childish
imagination, and we all see that China
is one of the oldest countries and has
had a long period of history. and. her
people have taken great pride in their |
“The world will have no peace until].
the Far Eastern questions -are settled,”
Such a statement is hard for an Amer-
ican to realize, but it is ‘an absolute
truth in the mind of many Chinese peo-
ple. The genuine sef€lement of such
questions will involve a great upheaval
of secret treaties, reinterpretation of
ambiguous ‘agreements, and the change
of many peace terms fhat have hitherto
existed betweeti. many countries and
China. Many. Chinese -people have un-
fortunately knowh the situation too well
to foster much, hope for an easy settle-
ment. In my early school days many
educated Chinese launched their hope in
the next generation. They taught schools
and made the children realize very early
what each treaty means. “Equip your-
selves with the armours of modern
knowledge and prepare yourselves to
fight. The gunning use of might alone
will win back your rights.” Such was
the daily teaching for many a young
child. Now the nations whose names
have been associated with those hateful] -
treaties are to settle the Far Eastern
questions. Are they going to give jus-
tice to China? I am afraid it is highly
doubtful ‘to the intelligent population of
China. But_it is plain that some of these
nations are tired of war. .Can they secure
peace by settling the Far Eastern ques-
tion without giving China a fair treat-
ment? “Yes, they may at least think
so,” some Chinese will answer with y
trembling tone. “Under some disguised
name they-may make China more than
ever an international prey; but divide it
equally among themselves “in order to
avoid further conflict.” Such fear is the}
natural outcome of a long suffering ill-
But the national senti-
ment is stronger than ever. Chinese
people believe in working together as a
unit. Their faith and hope for this con-
- ference to observe the principal of jus-
tice has not entirely gone. The National
Diplomatic League, the National Stu-
dent Patriotic League, the National
‘Bankers’ Association, and the National
Business Associgtion have expressed
their united opinion for the delegates to.

associations afe in session to disctss

_ WITHOUT A LABEL:
The History Club has voted to be. the

week it was decided to change the name
of the Club, but as none of the suggestions

its next meeting, when the matter will come
Since the members voted unanimously to
join the Intercollegiate Liberal League,, it
is possible that Liberal .Club will be the |
new name adopted, though this is not gen-|
erally favored, according to Miss Josephine.
Fisher, president of the Club. The Inter-
collegiate Liberal League, of which’J, Bur-
gess, 22, is an executive officer, was started
last. year to. promote fearless. and open-
minded discussion at the colleges. .
The Club further decided to invite Miss
Haskins, of the Friends’ Famine Relief, to}.
talk about Russia on December 10, Miss
Haskins‘addressed a small group of faculty
and graduates here two weeks ago, and was
exceedingly interesting, according to Dr.
Grey, professor of: history, who spoke in

Dr. Grey said, that the feeding of children
only, as carriéd on under the Hoover Re-

I am grateful to see that the confer-| =
ence has given a hearing to Minister
Sze’s ten points for the settlement of the
Far Eastern questions. They. are broad
and. far- reaching terms as poitited out
in ‘the New York Times .for..November
17. But ‘these questions center largely
in China. While the Chinese thinking
.world is advanced enough and the grow-
ing national sentiment is strong enough
to offer stout opposition to further im-
position, China is too crippled to bring
about rapid material advancement. .Rad-
ical changes have to be brought about
to put China back to her own feet and
thus end the world’s envy. How much
the conference is going to accomplish
actually will be proved by time. But
it is inspiring to hear how France has
already expressed her sympathy and
promised to give up many of her priv-
ileges in China if the other powers will
do the same...
In closing let me express my great
joy to see that a sub-committee of nine
have been appointed to study the Far
Eastern questions. If these committees
will be able to bring to the public eye
the real questions of the Far East, they
will at least pave the way thereby for
a sympathetic settlement of those ques-
tions in later days.
