the only institution of learning at

There never has been any hazing
to speak of at Kandolph-Macon Col?

students inaugurated an initiation
freshmen parade, in which the "fish,"
In night attire, were made to march
through the campus and town, per?
forming such feats as their seniors
might dictate.
This is what has been abolished,
and so all forms of hazing at Ran?

the authorities of this institution will

A half donen recalltrant students

been most apparent.

In view Of conflicting statements
regarding the part played by .Miss

Alien and Wesley Edwards, her nance,
A telegram was sent to Mt. Airy, and
the above is the answer as to how
the girl ?as received by her father.
Commenting upon the part played
by Frank Iroler, the ^irl'? lather, the
Roanoke World yesterday afternoon
printed the following editorial:
Tin- Inders nowadays are very
much In the public eye. How many
>f them there are we do not know.
The only Irolers people In the coun?
try at large an acquainted with
arc .Miss .Maud Iroler and her lather.
Prank Iroler.
Miss Maud is Wesley Edwards'
sweetheart. Prank is her father and
the prospective father-in-law of Wes?
ley Edwarde. For unnumbered' years
the Irolers, Aliens and Edwards have
been friends and neighbors, and Miss
Maud and Wesley, in planning to en?
ter Into a r/uptial contract, proposed'
to bring the families into yet closer
Unfortunately the unfolding of
events brought the course of their love
affair to a rude and sudden Interrup?
tion. Wesley was compelled to fly,
pursued by officers of the law and
wanted on s charge of murder. A
sum of money was offered' for his ar
r. s?.
Because of his love Wesley stole
back home and visited Miss Maud
and renewed his pledges and plighted
troth, and then hurried back to L>es
Moines. In his mind lie ?arr?e.I a
picture of his sweetheart's face and
in his heart s conviction of her good?
ness ami fidelity.
Low did Frank Iroler view his
daughter's love? No one has told us.
but up to the time of the HUlsvllle
tragedy be evidently gave to it a wiii
Iiir- sanction. He was ready to accept
Wesby Edwards as the husband of his
After the chase of the Aliens and Kd
wards began, iroler, it appears, became
an agency for the law. He became the
means through which the young man
whom his daughter loved was to come
within the shadow of electrocution.
For this service he receives five hun?
dred dollars.
How much pleasure will Iroler have,
when he spends this money? How i
much pride will Miss Maud take in him?
How much pride will he take in her?
Will he buy dresses and bonnets to
make her lovely?
When the sun shines over Carroll it
will shine upon the Iroler home. When
it ?nines over Roanoke it will shine
upon the jail In which Wesley Is con?
fined. To Frank Iroler and his family
It will reveal an act which their con?
sciences will not approve. To Wesley
Fdwards it will reveal the golden glory
of his mountains, the sweet and pleas?
ant fields of boyhood, and the hope
that rests within him and helps to
sweep away the darkness of the future.
The normal individual will be thank?
ful he is not Frank Iroler. He will be
equally thankful he is not Wesley Ed?
wards But if he had to be either he
would probably hunt for the cell in the
Roanoke jail.
