Both of these banquets are now held annually at College High School. The custom originated several years ago. The baccalaureate sermon was preached by Dr, Massey at the Presbyterian church on Sunday night. May 25. It was most impressive and ev« ry Senior thoroughly appreciated it. The elas- of 1930 can look back upon an eventful high school career. Their Senior year has been particularly successful, due to the ■oh-iulid leadership of the class president, Mariraret Armstrong; to the wise and sympathetic guidance of Miss London, the class advisor, and to the wholehearted co-operation of the entire class. During the first three years in high school this cl&SI saw the organization of the Debating Club, the Literary Club and the Student Government Association. It saw athletics rise to a position of importance, saw the beginning of the annual, "The Climber," and saw the Glee Club achieve success. The members of the class have always co-operated with the other (lasses and with the administration remarkably well. They have shown splendid school spirit and a genuine love for their Alma Mater. This year they have taken the lead in student activities Continued on page two

Seniors and Sophomores With a heartful of good wishes we watch you leave us to go on your triumphant journey. You leave us a step behind, but Seniors and Sophomores, you showed us the way. You lighted our candles, you guided our footsteps, and still you go on before us—but only a step or perhaps two. We watch you leave and think of tomorrow with its loss of you—yet we haven't lost you, you have only gone on ahead to guide us once again. And to you, our big sisters, and upperclassmen, we are sending with you our sincerest congratulations, our hopes, our ideals, and our love. Go forth, and give to the world what you have given to S. T. C, and forever and a day, we will be proud of you!

OVER. THE TEACUPS \Iy dear, am I tired? You bet, with essays, short stories, note books. Senior plays and exams, Can I stand it—can you? Did you go to Sing Saturday night? Wasn't it precious? I almost cry now when I think about it. The "fourteen" came up a bit in my estimation—they are no longer a club, why. they are an organization. (I happen to be one.) You know Saturday was a day for tears. Chapel was the saddest thing, outside "I" losing my wash rag down the bath tub drain pipe, I ever experienced. Why, when Caroline Watts came out in tears, I simply overflowed. Incidentally. I ruined the not: hook I've been planning to do theM many weeks and had finally begun. My tears washed away the ink. Perhaps Miss Her will pardon it. Speaking of tears, can you get over the "Trespasser"? Absolutely, if I live to have fifty grandchildren I'll never laugh more. They say the disc, the part that talks, was a hundred and twenty feet behind the film. Wfll, here's hoping I never get that far behind with my speaking apparatus. Why, I'd never in this world stand it. You know, I kinder wish I had a way of wishing all the Seniors good luck and happiness and all the two yearers, too, but I can't see them all. and I can't holler that loud, and well —what'll I do? Tell you and leave it to you to spread it. It's a go! Do your best for an eager four-year Soph. You really needn't yawn again— I'm going. I just get wound up and can't stop. But haven't we had R grand year, and won't we miss everybody this summer and next year, and haven't Miss Mary and Doctor Jarman and Miss Tabb and—oh, I'm going. Good night! I hope the next time you want to talk everybody goes to sleep on you.
Boxes, pictures, stoves, coathangers, ilope bottles, vases, letters, papers, clothes in fact, every conceivabel article litters the halls, the us. and even the baths. What's up? Why all the hustle, the bustle, confusion and clamor? One minute I feel like laughing and then I see tome dignified girl coming up the hall with a long face and teardinrmed eyes, and I weep bitterly, too. Dear, dear, it will never do. I have my exams to pass. That gives me a thought-—people arc geting ready to go home, aren't they? How dumb I ami 1 never thought of that before. (Feature it!) Well.

TO MY UNCLE— Somewhere there is someone. Someone true and fine. Those things I can't quite tell him— But in this heart of mine Ihold him close and love him As he can never know Until from up in Heaven He MCS DM here below. Often on the Sabbath, When I sit with mother, then', I watch him through the service His smile, his austere brow White framed with thinning hair His eyes stay not long open But somehow, there in church I think God sees and knows His great and humble worth. And sometimes when we're singing He looks at me and smiles And then my voice is sweeter And my heart is light the while. And then, as on our knees, we pray I offer thanks above That God has given me the right To claim him some my own.

The banquet room was particularly lovely and inviting with its tables decorated with candles and cut flowers. At each place there was an appropriate favor for the guests. Miss Hiner, Miss Taliaferro and Mr. Holton were guests of honor for the occasion. Merriment and enjoyment ran high; Pearl Johnson played the piano at intervals. A contest to see who could make the greatest number of words from the two words "Rotunda Staff" caused much amusement.

RUTH E.OWEN Ruth's sweetness and quiet ability have made her one of the most loved of all our Seniors. Her entire four years here, at S. T. C, have been characterized by these virtues and her splendid scholarship. We think of Ruth most especially for her work in the French and Spanish Clubs and as president of the Ruffner Literary Society .The success of each of these organizations is due in a large degree to the personality and initiative of Ruth, and it is with regret that we lose her by graduation. These rare traits of Ruth's have won for her the love and admiration of her classmates and associates. And they insure for her a future successful career. Our best wishes to you, Ruth!
SCHOLARSHIP PLAQUE GIVEN TO PAN-HELLENIC At open Pan-Hellenic meeting on last Wednesday night, Miss Grenels, Pan-Hellenic advisor, presented a scholarship plaque to the association. The sorority having the highest scholastic average for the preceding, year will get its name engraved on the plaque, and will be allowed to keep the plaque in its room for the following year. The University of California sophomores have a very original contest every year. The idea of the contest is to raise whiskers, and the man having the best crop of whiskers is the winner. The contest lasts the same number of days as appears in the class numeral. Coeds, who were formerly against the holding of such a contest, are now strongly in favor of it. There is no use saying that the he-man type doesn't appeal to the women.—Grapurchat.
To the members of the faculty and student body we appreciate the business you have given us this year and we wish JfOU everyone a pleasant vacation. We are looking forward to seeing you again next fall.

WHAT RATS! "My head is all in a whirl will people ever stop asking questions' Where's the library? Where's room 24? Where's X? Do you guess we were ever so dumb, so green? Really though, I would die if I couldn't tell 'em and show 'em. It is fun. What's more, they are dears. I haven't seen a grander assortment of girls since I came here. Why there are all sizes and all kinds. Wish I were a freshman— I do feel so old. Do I look it? Have I got any wrinkles yet? Just think how much they have ahead of them, how much to look forward to, so much to live through that I'd give anything to live over again. Wish I could tell them how much the years mean—but I didn't take it in when I was told. You know, those new girls work fast. They have already found the tea room, Shannons, Southside, Gil—oh, Gilliams — it can't be Gilliam's isnt anymore, and yet I look and there is an empty space. I feel all tearful, it was almost a part of the school. Think, well have to wear mourning for a week for the store that once was so close to the hearts of famished college girls. I'm not sentimental Ann, only deeply moved. Wasn't the reception Friday, nice. Why I had the cutest time. But everyone can have a good time at S. T. C. if they once get the spirit of Joan, the spirt of all those girls that have been and are yet to be— the spirit of love! Now, there you go getting peculiar. Why, I'm not so old. I'm only a rose in the bed. Dumb?? I'm not! I believe she was being sarcastic. Anyway, I'm awful glad to have such nice freshmen and I love em all as I hope they'll soon love us.

For the first time in my life I saw what looked like ten thousand little faces, and what sounded like ten million little voices—except the voices were bigger than the people. In a very meek voice I said, "Children we must be quiet." Presently my supervisor walked in, and I was somewhat relieved to say the least, because I thought maybe she could at least make them "hush". Sure enough, she spoke and they heeded, and that made me feel all the worse because they hadn't paid Perhaps the word honor means a different thing to each of the slightest attention to me when us because we come from different homes, churches and schools, I spoke.

PERSONALITY \ EBSU8 ABILITY
The Question often occurs to a colle e student perparing for a business or industrial career, just what is necessary for success? What qualities must be developed to get ahead in a chosen field of endeavor? One professor has stated that business success is made up of 50 per cent personality, 40 per cent "pull." and 10 per cent ability. Edison once said success is about 2 per cent inspiration and 98 per cent perspiration." Of course the essential factors vary widely for different occupations, however a few generalizations may be drawn. Assuming that a person has normal good health and a fair personality, will his progress in business be determined more by his personality and the "pull" of influential friends or by the natural ability? After all in final analysis most businesses are a cold money-making proposition. Employers are interested primarily in what a man can do; in how much he can make for his company, rather than in his Beau Erummel appearance or his Chesterfield manners. An exception would be in the case of salesmen or men going into the diplomatic service, where personality and appearance would be prime requisites. There is a fundamental law in operation which in the long run makes value received proportional to effort exerted. It is well that this is the ca 6, for if it were necessary for one to be born or endowed with the almighty "it" to make a success, there would be no incentive for those not having "it" to go ahead. It is significant to note that many of our most prominent men have started out with practically nothing and have forged ahead against tremendous odds, depending upon ib ability and hard work. In addition. it should give one a great deal of personal satisfactom to know thai he has gotten ahead strictly on his own merits and ability rather than on the influence of relatives and friends up. One can not long remain in a responsible position without corresponding ability to back it up. for modern business has exacting requirements and it is a case of the survival of the fittest. V. M.

Miniature golf was recognized as a national industry by the Department of Commerce when officials announced that a national survey is to be made to determine the amount of money invested, number of employes, and income from the courses. It is estimated that between S2.500,000 and $50,000,000 is invested in the 50,000 to 75.000 courses in operation and upward of a quarter nf ;i million persons are employed on them. The average business done by the courses was estimated at $50 a day on an investment of from $4,000 to $5,000. Village Prays Against Radio With the prayer, "Save us, O Lord, from the perils of the radio." the religious inhabitants of Mont SaintMichel, Manche are asking salvation from what they regard as a new threat to morals. A bitter attack upon radio explaining why the prayer crusade has been undertaken is printed in the Las Annales du Mont Saint-Michel, organ of the pilgrimage center. The writer, a cleric, says: "The radio is an agent of anti-religious propaganda."

ADVERTISING ON POSTAGE STAMPS If ever you receive a letter bearing a stamp inscribed with hsome slogan like. Eventually, why not now?" or "Four out of five have it." credit the phenomenon to Representative Emanuel Celler of New York. It is Mr. Celler's idea that the Post Office eDpartment can eliminate its deficit by selling space on postage stamps for advertising purposes. The New Yorker explains that he does "advocate" but only "suggests" this money-making scheme to the government. The suggestion is inspired by information he has received to the effect that France, Germany and New Zealand sell the marginal space on their stamps to private concerns, and that Bavaria and Italy have doubled the size of their stamps and sold the additional space. Mr. Celler further recalls that the United States itself has used the stencil employed to cancel stamps for slogans. Stamps have also been used to cal lattention to various expositions. Representative Celler is to be commended for his resourcefulness.

One barge now lies on dry land. Several ornamental objects were recovered, such as bronzes with heads of wolves, lions, and tigers of perfect workmanship. The predominant wood used in the construction of the ancient ship belonged to the pine group. This ship of Nemi has an inestimable value as an historical monument of ship building.

FRANCO-AMERICAN GOOD WILL LIBRARY A former American ambassador to France was once asked by an acquaintance for a certain book on France written by an American. The ambassador, Hugh Campbell Wallace, had great difficulty in locating the volume. Shortly afterwards, he tried to procure a book on America by a French scholar, and again he experienced difficulty. Mr. Wallace then *: and there resolved to gather together every available work or report by a Frenchman on the subject of America and vice versa. The result of that resolution is a library unlike any other in the world. Numbering several thousand books, pamphlets and reports, it is a complete history of Franco-American friendship since its very inception.

DRAMATIC CLl H STARTS STl'DKN'T (iOVERVMKNT ON NEW SCHEME Acting upon the feeling that there were more girls in the student body with interest and ability than we were able to be taken care of by the system of try-outs the Dramatic Club asked all girls interested in dramatics to sign up on the bulletin board and report to the little auditorium. Monday night at 7:30 p. m. About 100 girls, old and new came, and even though Miss Wheeler put the proposition before them in a frank way the girls still hung on, showing that their interest was genuine. The plan so far as it has been worked out, is to give instruction and help the girls who show ability and enthusiasm for different phases of play production. At the beginning of the winter term those girls who have during the fall term shown marked ability and interest, will be asked to become members of the regular club. In this way the Dramatic Club hopes to reach more members of the student body and to find more real talent than it otherwise would.
