Just a year ago today, the Cross
Country Club took its first outdoor
run. It is to be hoped that the weath-
er will soon moderate; otherwise the
baseball team will start the season
under a severe handicap and the four
mile relay team will be unable to get
in condition for the great race at Phil-
adelphia in April.
The classic quiet of the campus
walks and buildings bids fair soon to
be something of the past. ,Students
who in former years found nothing to
do during lecture hours but watch the
squirrels, or who in the library studied
in stillness broken only by the hum of
social chatter now have their reveries
and their labors interrupted. For te
newsboy has broken down the barriers
of farmer years and now calls his
papers almost in the corridors of the
general libray. At first glance t'
practice seems hardly worth the not.
ice, but if it is to be stopped now is
the time, and there can be little doubt
that it should be stopped.
The action of the sophomores at
Cornell in using pepper in the fresh-
man rush recently and silver nitrate
in painting captured freshmen has
been severely criticized by' the upper
classes. The trouble between the two
classes was the annual fight in con-
nection with the freshman banquet.
THE GREAT CHARIOT RACE IN
The chariot race in Ben-Hur is the
most convincing bit of realism ever
presented on the stage. The difficulty
of practically developing this wonder-
ful feature was one of. the reasons
which caused Gen. Lew Wallace, the
author of the story, to decline for
years to permit the book to be dram-
atized., After Klaw & Erlanger had
submitted to him a complete working
model of the mechanism of this scene
and had demonstrated to him its thor-
ough practicability, he began to con-
sider the dramatization of the book.
The chariot race occurs in the fifth
act of the play. It is preceeded by a
scene showing the exterior of the cir-
cus in Antioch. Here, the great wager
is laid between Sanballat, the secret
agent of Simonides (the steward of
Ben-Hur), and the Roman contestant,
Messala. The signal for the race is
sounded and the crowds rush into the
arena. The stage is suddenly darken-
ed. A fanfare of trumpets is heard
and the din of the shouting of a riot-
The lights are on. Over the course,
through clouds of dust, with a sound
as of muffled thunder, the chariots of
Ben-Hur, Messala and the other two
contestants, each drawn by four blood-
ed horses, exactly fitting the descrip-
tions in the story, speed in full career.
The walls of the arena, the stalls and
the galleries, crowded with excited
spectators, hirl dizzily by. The four
blood bays of Ilderim draw past the
whites and blacks. At the turn the
wheel of Messala's chariot spins from
its axle. Messala reels in his chariot
and falls headlong under the feet of
plunging ohrses. Darkness.
The next scene shows the vast
curve of the amphitheatre, stretching
away in perspective. Ben-Hur, in his
chariot is before the Consul's seat, be-
ing crowned as the victor and receiv-
ing the plaudits of the people.
It cost Kaw & Erlanger over $20,
000 to develop this magnificent inci-
dent in the play. The sixteen horses
alone cost them $10,000. The horse
markets of the country were scoured
to secure them and 120 were tested on
the apparatus. From this number 20
were selected, suited by temperament
for this work. Sixteen of these are
used as principals and four as substi-
tutes in case of accident or sickness.
