HMnnunerPeoruary 4, ll>1 phou> couflct.y of Circle Theatre The comcdic Millie Spirit by Noel Coward is showing at Circle Theatre through Feb. 21. A comedy with spirit reaches Circle Theatre Matt Smith Staff writer Looking for an evening of wit and fun? If so, chock out Blithe Spirit currently playing at Fort Worth's Circle Theatre. The play, written by Noel Coward in 1941, is a humorous comedy of manners. It is reminiscent of classic Hollywood screwball comedies, such as Brining Up Bain' and The Philadelphia Story in that the humor is more verbal wit than physical pratfalls. Blithe Spirit tells the story of Charles Condomine (Benton Jennings) and his wife Ruth (Lisa Fairchild). In order to research for Charles' new book, the couple invites a local medium to dinner. Madame Arcatti, the medium, is played by Jaeque Mellor in a hilariously over the top performance. Neither Charles nor Ruth takes the medium seri- ously. Unfortunately, she unwittingly revives the spirit of Elvira (A...

4 • The R&mbler February 11, 1998 That thing called love A student's perspective of being alone on Valentine's Day '« 'V, As Valentine's Day quickly approaches many of us are asking the familiar and often nerve wracking question: What is this thing called love, and why does it always go so terribly wrong for me? For those of us who are "alone in a married world" as one author so aptly titled his hook, the world can be a very cold and empty place. The question that keeps plaguing my mind is this : Is it so wrong to not want to be alone? My family and most of my friends tell me: "Oh, don't worry about it; you are still so young you've got plenty of time, you've got school to think about, you should travel and have a good time before you get settled down with somebody:" blah blah .blah... These people have good points and 1 know that they only have my best interest at heart, but 1 don't agree with them. I always "Once [love] comes i your way, it has this power to make you forget al...

Knight receives honors again Troy Clarkson Sports editor The Texas Wesleyan baseball team began their season on Feb. 9 with two convincing wins against the Texas College Steers 7-1 and 11-0. First game starting pitcher Rome McNary had a strong first outing, striking out 11 Steers while allow- ing only two hits and one run during five innings. Everything went McNary's way until the top of the fifth, when his perfect game bid was ruined by a one out walk. One out later McNary lost his no hitter and gave up the Steers' only run. The Rams offense was a team effort. Pat Hannon, James Clark and Brad Loafman had two hits each, Clark doubled home the first two runs of the 98 season which provided all the runs the Rams would need. Center fielder Brock Muggins also contributed with the year's first triple and Terence Green and Hannon add...
