—On Saturday evening, February 17th, the
second entertainment of the FREE LANCE course
was given in the College chapel. Mr. Edward
P. Elliot, the impersonator, gave us one of his
inimitable plays, "Dollars and Sense," Mr. El
liot is an old favorite here, having appeared last
year in "Hazel Kirk," when he completely en
deared himself to State College audiences by his
exquisite conception of the various rolls in which
he appeared. "Dollars and Sense," is a new play
and still somewhat in the rough, but many think
it even better than Hazel Kirk, His short
sketches are especially fine, and it will be with
pleasure that we anticipate his return next year.
