Episcopal Church Work PREACHED AT THE METHODIST CHURCH Mr. Nat G. Long, who represents the Southern Methodist Episcopal Church, gave a series of talks here last week from Friday, January 24 through Sunday, January 2G. He spoke at chapel time, prayers, cabinet meeting and gave the Sunday morning address in the Methodist Church. Mr. Long visits a great number of colleges over this country and canies the clarion call. Some of his messages were of intense interest to this student body. He said, "We have each to determine whether this world is an arena where we fight to get what we can for ourselves, or a field of honor where we give all we can for our fellowmen." Wilfred T. Grenfell. His text was taken from Sir Harry Lander, the comedian who believed that the things that make life worthwhile are the home, work, neighbors over the back-fence, and God. A home is not a real home without God. He also said that one-sixth of our marriages end in divorce which means that this trouble must be solved by the college men and women of today. They must give and be the types of persons who need something bigger than self. After all home is the biggesl link and we need to make that link most worth while. On Saturday morning at chapel time Mr. Lang used as his text a

statement of David, "Our daughters should be the cornerstones of the past polished after the similtude of a palate. He showed why a woman must be honest, pure and unselfish to answer the prayer of David. He showed that character is the strongest thing in life. Our women must follow the (Continued on page 3)

OPEN CABINET MEETING SATURDAY The regular open cabinet meeting was held last Saturday afternoon in the Y. W. reception room. The devotionala were led by Mr. Nat G. Long. The chairman of each committee gave her 1. port for the month. The business of the cabinet was discussed. After the business matters were dosed tea was served by Allie Kae Libby and her group.

The "Twilight Singers", a male quartet from the Lynchburg Seminary for negroes gave a concert in the college auditorium last Friday evening. This concert was sponsored by the Lions Club of this town. The singers presented their numbers in groups, the I first consisting of hymns, the second [of lullabies, the third ditties and the last some famous negro spirituals. Everyone was greatly pleased with every number, and as an encore the quartet sang a favor -"The Pagan Love Song." A member of the administration of the Seminary made a talk in which he gave some very interesting facts about the work carried on by this institution, which attempts to develop lenders of the negro race Those who were unable to hear both the concert and talk missed a real treat.

MISSION GROUP IS A CTI YE ORGANIZA TION Sunday afternoon of the nineteenth four of the Mission Group girls: Lucille Bridgeman, Annie Lee Bowden, Eleanor Davis, and Alice Harrison, with Mrs. Frank Crawford, drove to Blackstone on deputation work for the Student Volunteer .Movement. Bud Talbot, Lloyd Arehart, and Sart'll from the Hampden-Sydney volunteer group went down the night before and talked at the school. Sunday night both groups took charge of the evening service of the Blackstone Presbyterian Church. Lloyd Arehart gave a missionary devotional; Sartell talked on the "Scope of Foreign Missions." Mrs. Crawford discussed the needs and conditions of medical missions in China, which Bird Talbot followed up with a talk on the evangelistic and educational needs there. Alice Harrison gave a brief history of the Student Voluntc r Movement, its organization, and purpose. The S. T. C. girls sang a quartet, "How Long Must They Wait?", and the program was concluded with pray* er and the Mizpah benediction. It is the purpose of these two groups, before school closes, to present the foreign mission cause and its needs to as many colleges, high schools, and young people's societies as possible within a radius of fifty miles.

Dr. Walmsley Resigns As Debate Club Coach At the Debate Club meeting last Thursday evening, the members were very distressed to have to accept Dr. Walmsley's resignation as coach. He found it necessary to give up this work due to ill health. His resignation came as a complete surprise and shock to most of the club members and everyone present expressed deep

regret. We wish to take this opportunity t i state that Dr. Walmsley will be sadly missed by all the girls who are at all interested in this work and especially by those of us who have worked with him on the college debate teams. We have learned to look toward him as a never failing friend as well as a most able guide and coach in our work. It is this friend who has always given us a helping hand when we were discouraged and a push when we were lazy, that we will miss even more than the coach becau." the later office can be filled, and filld very successfully we have no doubt. Not that we have completely lost our friend, of course, such is not the case, but we have lost the meeting ground; the thing which we had in common with him; we have lost him in this line. We feel that to Dr. Walmsley we owe every success which this college has known for quite a few years in the field of public speaking and debal ing, and judging from the late southern tour, this success has been marked. We want to express our de< | gratitude and alFection for him who has labored so faithfully for us.

Our Individual Selves.

Whatever else we may say about the man who once said that we cast our largest shadow directly around us, we admit that he was a philosopher. We do not have the greatest influence upon those directly around us, ol'times unconsciously. But when we, still in its most royal use, analyze ourselves we find a great deal of room for improvement, a whole lot to overcome, and a lot <if those petty things to remedy if we would have a shadow which casts a really good influence over our college neighbors. Conscientious self-analysis will show us the truth about ourselves, and we, still royal to the nth degree, will agree that before we can slake a claim to a title of a "good student body" we will have to begin with the law ahidedness and influence of our individual selves. A. D.

Education or Intellect? Education had always struck me as being something one is able to acquire, to achieve by hard work and an open mind. Intellect is more intangible. It may he the prolonged result of heredity. Intellect may be compared to precious metals in their rough state, probably, but the precious part is really there and that—that is what counts. The little Polish girl who i \\U red a contest to give the clearest difference between education and Intellect won the contest with the following statement, "Education is someone else*s thinks, but intellect is one's own thinks!"

/ LOVE TO TEACH I do not know what I could make entirely clear to an outsider the pleasure I have in teaching. I had rather earn my living byteaching than in any other way. In my mind, teaching is not merely a life work, a profession, an occupation, a struggle; it is a passion. I love to teach. I love to teach as a painter loves to paint, as a musician loves to play, as a singer loves to sing, as a strong man rejoices to run a race. Teaching is an art—an art so great and so difficult to master that a man or woman can spend a long life at it without realizing much more than his limitations and mistakes, and his distance from the ideal. But when the main aim of my happy days has been to become a good teacher, just as every architect wishes to be a good architect and every professional poet strives toward perfection. —William Lyon Phc lj>s

U CLUB PARTY I : Wednesday night at that attractive hour just after the bell, the old "Cuteti Girls in School" were moat charmingly entertained by the new "Cutest Girls in School" in the i,-ieation hall of their Alma Mater. The boataaaei were attractively garbed in their "14" sweat shirts and the loudest pajamas they could find, as were the guests. The hall was colorfully decorated in the club colors of red and gold, and featom of red hearts were draped from the center of the room to the lighta.

Loulia Milner, president of the club, added just the finishing touch tr the party by reading a poem of her own composition, expressing the appreciation and enjoyment of the old girla.

STUDENT COUNCIL PARTY Tuesday night, Miss Mary entertained the Student Council in her office It was a gala occasion in spite of the late hour and, naturally everybody tad a great time because they always do at Miss Mary's parties. The centerpiece was a green bowl of yellow calendulas and yellow candles in green holders. Delicious food was served by Lucille Graves and Lillian Hogan who were dressed as maids and it might be said here that they portrayed their roles very gracefully. It was a lovely and memorable party, the success of which was due to its charming hostess.
