Page Six Dear Miss Patricia: I have got to take a girl to a show next week, but I am short of change. What is a good excuse? My dear "Spendthrift": What you need is imagination coupled with prevarication. Tell the girl that you have been called out of town on business and must break the date. You can go fishing instead. You might sell the fish you catch and make enough money to take her to a show some other time. Dear Miss Patricia I am in love with a doll of a boy who has been perfectly sweet to me in every way. He comes to see me four or five times a week, takes me anywhere I want to go, and gives me expensive presents. All the girls rave about him, but he never goes with anyone but me. He says he loves me, but I'm afraid he doesn't because he has never tried to kiss me. Don't you think that if he really cared for me he would show his love in a more convincing way than by just sitting at the other end of the Chesterfield and saying he adores me? My dear "Peeved": Your letter is ju...

Only One More Issue of "The Monocle" Vol. 1, No. 11 BLACKSTONE DRILL IS CALLED OFF ON ACCOUNT OF EXAMS ACTION TAKEN SUDDENLY Men of Company X Receive the News in Good Sportsmanship; Smith Praised Captain James C. Anthony, commandant of cadets, announced to the men of Company X Monday that the Blackstone competitive drill for this year is "off.' : The reason for the cancellation of the event is the fact that the date set for the drill was May 17, and the Blackstone examinations begin May 18. The President of the school, in a letter to Captain Anthony, states that he thinks it unwise for so many men to be away from Blackstone the day before this important event. Letter Quoted "We feel that it is inadvisable to have the contest this year," he writes, "although we should have been very glad to arrange it if the details could have been worked out earlier." Captain Anthony stated that the crack John Marshall company was in the best of shape, "not only because the splendid leadership of Ca...

She is the sob-sister of the Globe-Dis-patch, who defies convention, society, and the courts of justices for love. Although a murder is committed, Miss Haver is not guilty, but plays the detective in freeing Leslie Fenton from suspicion and putting the blame on Margaret Livingston. Raymond Hatton plays the city editor of the paper. On the stage will be seen the popular Marcus Revue offering an entirely new big Revue entitled Temptations, with all of the Marcus favorites, including Elmer Coudy and the famous Leon Miller Dancing Beauties.

SPORTS Justices and McGuires Vie at Bird Park Today HP WINS MEET FOR SECOND TIME; JUSTICES VICTORS IN FIRST TILT KAHN, TAYLOR PITCHERS Blue and White Play St. Christopher on Tuesday in Last of City Games The baseball teams of John Marshall and McGuire meet at Byrd Park this afternoon at 3:45 o'clock for the second time this season. The winner of this game probably will be the 1929 prep school champion. In the first game last Wednesday the Justices, behind the masterful hurling of Henry Taylor, rapped out a 6 to o decision over their Byrd Park rivals. It can be expected that the McGuire players will be out for revenge, and spectators will be assured of an interesting and well played game. Both camps will send their best pitchers to the firing line in an attempt to capture the prep leadership. McGuire will rely upon Ray Kahn for the pitching assignment. while Henry Taylor will again be 011 the mound against the Red and Black bat-swingers. Both McGuire and John Marshall have enjoyed su...

Friday night, May 3, the new Pep members were entertained at the home of Ann Davis, and last Friday night a meeting was held at Anne Crews' home. Friday, May 10, two sections of the Harwood Literary Society visited the Marshall house under the supervision of Miss Branch.

The new Bootsies are Elizabeth Floyd, Dorothy Staples, Margaret Huggins, Catherine Gorsline, Anita Barham, Virginia Cole, and Dorothy Richardson.

Page Six |g| W IC/y Dear Miss Patricia: At the beginning of the term I left a note in an inkwell for a friend. Another girl who has the same name answered it. Since then notes have been hidden in that dear old ink well every day. We have never seen each other, and she won't allow me an introduction, but says I will see her picture in the Annual and she will see mine. Now here's the trouble. The photographer sent in the wrong picture of me to the Annual. Really lam passable looking, but you'd never know it from that picture. When she sees it I know she'll despise me forever. Oh, Miss Patricia, I'm sure I'm about to find the Girl of my Dreams at last. Tell me how I can keep from losing her before I even meet her. My dear "Distracted": You had better secure an introduction before she sees your picture. Since she has forbidden you to meet her, make the introduction seem as much of a surprise to you as to her. Dear Miss Patricia: I am in desperate trouble. If you do not help me, I think ...

Page Two FOUNDERS OF THE MONOCLE I A. H. ROSSITER Editor of The Record With the degree of concern as to successi attached to any new project, "The Monocle" founders advanced their paper. John Marshall has repaid, their efforts in full by manifesting real enthusiasm and giving true support. MONOCLE FOUNDERS HAD DIFFICULTIES AT FIRST Beginning Issue of Weekly Were Not Enthusiastically Received by School For years John Marshall had been in dire need of a weekly newspaper. Everybody knew of the necessity, but nobody did anything. Starting a newspaper requires work, and there are fair chances of failure —a newspaper had failed in John Marshall years ago. Finally Powell Harrison one afternoon suggested to Alex Rossiter that they start a paper. Rossiter at first considered the scheme impractical, but finally decided to assist in the work, and a little later Frank McCarthy was enlisted in the cause. These three boys obtained faculty consent and Miss Charles Anthony became advisor. Editorial...

|i|l yvv* 5 * PA Adive to the Lovelorn (Miss Patricia regrets that she has been unable to find space for answers to all the letters she has received. She has tried to solve all the problems presented, even though she has not answered all your letters.) Dear Miss Patricia: A very dear friend of mine and I are in love with the same boy. But, alas, he is cross-eyed; therefore we can't tell which one of us is the object of his affectionate and adoring glances. Please help us out of this dilemma. Sincerely, "Befuddled Babies." My dear "Befuddled Babies": Don't bank on the expression in a boy's eyes. He may be looking between you at some other girl. Wait until he gives you some more convincing proof of his affection. Dear Miss Patricia: My twin brother wore my only suit recently when he took his girl out. He took the suit while I was asleep, and I had to stay in bed all the evening although I had a date with my sweetheart I telephoned her and told her I was ill. It would have been all rig...

ROGERS AND CARROLL CO-STARRED AT LOEW'S "Close Harmony" is Name of the Feature at Grace Street Theatre Next Week Charles "Buddy" Rogers, hero of Wings, and Nancy Carroll, heroine of Abie's Irish Rose, are co-starred for the first time in an all-talking, singing, dancing screen romance. Close Harmony is the aptly devised name of the picture, and it will make its debut at Loew's on Monday for a week's engagement. Rogers, who plays the trumpet, trombone, saxaphone, etc., displays his instrumental qualifications in this feature as a jazz maestro. The plot is the conception of Elsie Janis, Gene Markey, and Percy Heath. The story is of vaudeville backstage life. Buddy takes the part of a young musician trying to get a contract with his collegiate jazz band. Miss Carroll portrays a headliner, whose song and dance act are permanent. Jack Oakie and "Skeets" Gallagher make up a typical vaudeville team and aside from their dance and song act furnish competition. The manager is played by Harry ...

Page Six Nancy Carroll Rogers "CLOSE HARMONY" TITLE MEANS TUNEFUL SINGING Believe it or not —motion picture titles do sometimes mean what they say. The Four Feathers has nothing to do with chickens, tame or otherwise. Wolf Song does not feature a chorus of trained wolves. The Dummy isn't a story of a knockkneed serio-comic trying to break into talking pictures in Hollywood, and there are no canaries in The Canary Murder Case. But—there is music in Close Harmony, Paramount's new screen musical play which introduces Charles "Buddy" Rogers as the leader of a jazz band, Nancy Carroll as a song and dance headliner,. Jack Oakie and Richard "Skeets" Gallagher as a team of singing hoofers, and Harry Green as a hard-headed motion picture theatre manager. Theatre-goers will see and hear them all at Loew's Theatre when Close Harmony opens May 27 for a week's run. "CLOSE HARMONY" STARS REALIZE EARLIER DREAMS "Pop, I wanna be an engineer." Many a child has thus expressed the youthful ambitions o...

Page Ten Hudgins' Force Defeats Smith in Sham Battle MACHINE GUNS IN ACTION Reservoir Theoretically Saved in Mimic War Held Around Byrd Park The First Battalion of the Cadet Corps, commanded by Captain Cliff Hudgins and Lieutenant Simeon Cox, as Adjutant, defeated the Second Battalion yesterday at Byrd Park, in the first sham battle the John Marshall cadets have ever had. The Second Battalion, under command of Captain Irvin Smith, with Lieutenant Powell Harrison as Adjutant, was crossing the James at the Boulevard Bridge and advancing thru the woods of the park. Their object was to capture the reservoir, which was being defended by the First Battalion. The opposing forces met in the thickest part of the woods, where Captain Hudgins had his machine guns placed to the best advantage, and as soon as the forces came within firing distance, guns began' to fire and the woods became the scene of mimic war.

SAME SCHOLARSHIPS Mr. Beale Accepts Position as Principal of Armstrong High School. In a necessarily brief interview at the opening of the new school year, Principal James C. Harwood made known the changes in faculty membership and the future status of school regulations. Admitting that there were a number of new regulations under consideration, Principal Harwood was loath to discuss their nature due to the fact that the rules had not been fully developed. He also said that no plans for new scholarships were being considered, and that, in all probability, the number of scholarships and the basis for acquiring a scholarship would remain the same , as previously. However, a number of changes r have taken place in the school faculty. Practically every subject taught includes appointments of new teachers.
