Presldent Blackwell has rescinded the
originnl action taken by the faculty,
and after receivlng an apology from
the students and a promise that the

With the conclusion of th0 football
gftma between Randolph-Maoon nnd
Richmond College at Broad street
l.irk to-day the flnal curtuln will he
B"V_t_ Vt i0n th" 'ootbaii season
of 1010. Rlcliiiiond College ls mlghiv
anxlOUB to wln thls Kaine. The sea
son has not been ono to which the
Bplders can polnt with prlrlr> Tho
team has mot sonie awful defeats nnd
Conch Long has put all of hls eggs ln
one nasket, banklng on the outcome
of the oontest to-day to wln back
lost laurels.
There Is still another factor which
will count much ln tho game Rlch?
mond Collego has tho hlghost regard
for the Ashland school, stlll the men
at the local lnstitutlon feel that they
Bhould bo Buperlor in athletlcs even
lf they are not. The elemcnt of clean,
Jiealthy rlvalry has supplanted the
old-time feud which existed between
tho two schools, but the deslre to wln
has not been lessened. Randolph
Mocon once took tho cup for the
champ lonshlp away from Richmond.
und now Richmond will endeavor to
keep tho Ashlandera from winning.
From Ashland Coach Warren sends
out good reports, and says that hls
team will glve a good account of It
selX. The fact that Rlchmond Col
ege won the oxhlbltlon game earller
In the season ls not regarded as In?
dlcatlve of any superlorlty on the
part of tho Splders. To the contrary,
lt has been repeatedly the case lu
provlous years that the tcam winning
tlie oxhlbltlon game lost out ln tho
champlonshlp contest. It has workctl
by opposltes.
r, Dr; ,R.' 5' Blackwell, presldent ol I
Rundolph-Macon College, has made
hlmself the popular Idol of the hour.
Hls declslon to allow tho sturlents lo
attend tho game to-day, after tho
questlon had boen put up to him by
tho faculty, was a mastcr strokc of
dlplomacy, and he may count on the
support of overy student In college.
Such an act ls vory nearly Uke heap
Ing coals of llre. and is tho most tell
lng way to brtng the follows to a
rocognttlon of their mlstakes. Inci
dentally, no more effectlve method of
precluding any possible rccurrence of
tho evll could have been hlt upon.
The resultfof the wholo matter will
be to make \the interest In tho game
mnro intense than ever, if possible
But don't forget the magnlflcent and
really ningnanlmous manner in which
Rlchmond College met the issue. lt
ls worthy of much favorable comment,
that action of tlie locul lnstitutlon
in adopting a resolution to inhiblt or
ganized rootlng should the Ashland
student body not have been on hand
to answer.
W'hen the Army and Navy meet to
day lt will bo as much a socicty event
as it will a football. game. at leasl I
thal is the way most of those wht I
will be on hand. regard it. But to
tho two teams lt will be light all tho i
way. Can't chance at thls late date.
and tho Army still Iooks good.
Wonder what College Toplcs is go?
lng to say about the game Thanksgiv?
ing. which Virfinia tled up ln a neal
packag-e and carrled home. Then a
llttlc more wonderment as to what
they are saylng at Chapel Hlll. Back

and those who went hardly expected
much. But before the nrst act wo?
concludcd, lt became apparent that ?
play utterly out of the ordlnary wa?

was of a high order of merlf.
Tho flrst act ls set aa tie lnterloi
of a farm house. owhed by jam^s riol
croft (Onrleton Macy), a wldower. who
has employed lncompetent or slatternly
women to keep house for him. The
condltlon of thf room ahows absoluto

his eudurance. Te firea both ot tha

little daughter of the one who has
been employed as his houaekeeper, a

her hclplessness. he comes to a suddt-n
resolutlon, and proposes th'at they he

Thls act ls not pleaaing. Tt la
sombre, almost sordld, in Us dreary
har^hness, In splte of the very excellent
comedy work of severai of the char
acters. But wlth the second act overy
thlng ls changed. The curtaln goes up
on the dooryard of the farm, and an
unusually good settlng lt ls, wlth Its
blts of stone wall. Its full-lcaved tree*,
the old-fashloned well-beam. the turn
stlle. and the hig swinglng gate.
It ls apparent that the partners are
bpcrlnnlng to thlnk less of the businens
end of thelr arrangement. and the
play brightens. The clean. genulne
comedy begins to domlnate, and one
has an opportunlty to reallze the ablllty
of the east, and. in partlcular. the real
power of Carleton Macy. who. as Jatnes
Holcroft, ls so thoroughly a man, so
hig and strong and forceful. that the
houso Is glad wlth him?glad to see

his chance to put across as clcan-cut

than held ner 0wn.
The thlrd act shows the same room
in the house, but changes ln a hundred
tfays. Kverythlng Is fresh and clean;
tliere ls a rag-carpet on the stairs,
home-made curtatns at the windows, a
"lambrequln" on tho mantelplece.
Kverywhere evldences of palnstaklng
care. The comedy contlnues, crescendo;
poor old .lonathan ls caught by Mrs.
Malaprop; and Peasley comes on wlth
his fnce so swollen by the stings of
bees that he ls almost unrecognlzable,
and evokes roar after roar of laugh
ter by his efforts to speak. Mrs. Hol
croft's villaln comes on. there is a mo?
ment of tonscness In whlch Mr. Macy
again shines out with truo dramatle
restraint and power, and all ends

fair not to slngle out Mildred Morrls,
whose performance of the part of the

one's heart ache. The work of Mabel
Brownell ln the somowhat lachrymose
rolo of Mrs. Hclcroft seemod to meet
wlth tho approval of tho house?I did
not liko It.
Altogether, the play ls well worth
