Red and White Are Victorious In Class Games

Elaborate and Entertaining Program Has Been Planned For Students and People of the Town

Seniors Win Out In Championship Scries of Basketball Games

LEGION GETS SPEAKER

GAMES ARE HARD FOUGHT

Americans everywhere will be celebrating the Bicentennial Anniversary of George Washington's birth, February 22. Quite an elaborate program has been planed for the benefit and entertainment of the college students and people of the town. The first part of the program has been taken over by the Training School, and will be given in the morning. For the afternoon, the American Legion has secured a speaker. The honor societies of the college working in combination, have planned several scenes by which interesting phases of Washington's life will be portrayed. The program as it now stands is as follows: 1. "Star Spangled Banner", audience 2. Reading Eleanor Davis 3. Washington's life in pageantry: a. Washington's Farewell to his mother. b. The Virginia Colonel. c. General George Washington and his generals. d. Lady Washington's reception. —minuet by dancing class e. Prayers at Mount Vernon. 4. "America" audience Throughout the entire program the college orchestra under the direction of Miss Lizabeth Purdom will give musical selections appropriate to the pantomime.

The Seniors defeated the Sophomores in a hard-fought game for the championship Monday night by a socre of 19 to 11. The game was one of the most thrilling ever played at S. T. C. Both teams played well, and the score was close throughout the entire game. Several times it was impossible to tell which team was leading but when the final score was announced the Seniors stood champions. The two sister classes fought each other in friendly rivalry, and the Sophomores smilingly gave the championship to the Seniors in their last fight in basketball. The line-up was as follows: Seniors Sophomores Souders G Kello Hundley O Cooper Boswell F Fraser Clingenpeel F Yeaman Quisenberry C Parker Edwards S.C Holland Substitute, Sophomores: Foster for Parker. The Spohomores triumphed over the Freshmen, and the Seniors defeated the Juniors in two hardfought basketball games Thursday night. All the teams worked hard for Continued on page four

S. T. C. Choral Club Sings In Petersburg The Senior Choral Club presented a program of sacred music in Trinity Methodist Church, Petersburg Sunday evening, February 14 before an audience that filled the auditorium. The program up to the very high standard that has made this Choral Club synonymous with the best in choral singing. The students were given a supper and a beautiful nosegay by the members of the church, and had a very enjoyable time. The concert, according to a leading musician of Petersburg, was an expression of the finest selections in music rendered with consumate artistry. As a tribute to the director the pastor, Rev. J. Manning Potts said he would ever remember the playing of the Hallelujah Chorus by Mr. Strick. The following program was renedred: Doxology Hymn 106—"O Worship the King" Organ Solo A. H. Strick Chorus—"Gloria" Buzzia-Peccia String Trio—"Air" Tenaglio Quartette—"One Sweetly Solemn Thought" Junior Quartette "Panis Angelicus" Choral Club Announcements Offertory Soprano Solo Irene Leake Offertory Chant "Overture to Messiah" Handel Soprano Solo Irene Leake Contralto solo Elsie Carter "Lost Chord" Choral Club Benediction Organ Postlude Handel

MODERN LANGUAGES BAZAAR FEBRUARY 11 On February 11 for a brief two hours, the recreational hall became two lands of enchantment. Spain, with its gaily dressed senoritas and the Spanish "vendedores" who explained artfully the value of one's money, and offered the travelers beautiful gifts for sale. Through the Pyrenees one entered into France where again the usage of French money gave one, not used to it, many interesting vexations. Miss Gertrude Mannes and Miss Irene Leake, accompanied by Miss Lucie Anne Lane were the soloists for the afternoon. They were assisted by the members of the French and Spanish classes who gave group songs Special French peasant dances and tap dances gave variety to the program. During the afternoon hot chocolate, tea and sandwiches were served. Spain and France! Lands of enchanting mysteries—some are known and some are yet to be told. Each year new ones are unfolded in the annual bazaar.

TAKES LEADING ROLE IN MAY DAY FESTIVAL Mary Shelton has accepted the leading role in the May Day festival to be given at Long wood, May 7. The character part requires the dramatic ability, poise, and good stage appearance which Mary has. Her place as one of the twelve attendants in the May Court will be taken by Lindsey White who came next in the list of nominations.

Faculty Upsets The Confident Freshmen 17-11 Exhibiting all the pep their name implies the Flashy Faculty brought the Feeble Freshmen to defeat on Friday night, February 12 with a score of 17-11. Having circled the gym, the uniformed faculty cheering squad led by Mr. Bell, came to a halt and gave fifteen rahs for their team, which followed them on the court. The echo was then picked up by the freshmen, who gave their players a great sendoff. The spectators, packed in the galleries, kept the cheering going from beginning to end. Cares were forgotten, troubles were banished, hilarity ruled supreme. The walls of the old gym literally vibrated as the audience roared, watching the battle between the Faculty, stripped of their dignity, and the lowly Freshmen. From the rich Faculty line-up shone several stars, namely: Moran, Bedford and Her. From the Feshman ranks Judith Taylor was out1 standing. The way in which the Flashy Faculty piled up their score soon proved that the Freshmen, who had so thoughtfully provided a step-ladder for their opponents had need of it themselves. Between halves (the pause that refreshes) the swagger cheering squad of the Faculty sauntered out once (Continued on page 4.)

DELEGATES INVITED TO Hold everything, girls! The Junior ATTEND CONFERENCE Class has planned a most entertainWinter Park, Fla., Feb. 17—The International Relations Club of State Teachers College has been invited to end delegates to the Southeastern Conference of International Relations Club to be held at Rollins College from February 24 to 27, it was announced here today. Sixty-eight clubs in the eight southeastern states are members of the conference which meets annually under the auspices of the Carnegie Endowment for International ePace. The conference has as its aim the formation of closer contacts among the member colleges, the exchange of ideas concerning the activities of the clubs and the discussion of topics of timely interest in world affairs. United States and World Peace is to be the main topic to be considered at the Ninth Annual Conference with discussions on the League of Nations, the eKllogg Pact, the World Court and Disarmament.

DEBATE CLUB TO HOLD MEETING "Should smoking be permitted at S. T. C.," is the question for debate at the regular Debate Club meeting Thursday night. February 18th at 8 o'clock. The affirmative will be upheld by Misses Lottie Dixon and Mildred Linthicum; the negative by Misses Margaret Murray and Elizabeth March. Besides an interesting program, an important business meeting is to be held. Every member is urged to be present.

ing program for you, to be presented on Friday night, February 26. in the college auditorium. The Jolly Junior Jubilee will please the gloomiest of audiences, and will bring back the smiles which the depression has depressed so. There is even a hint that Mary Todd will dance—and all of you know what that means. The production will be divided into three parts. The first, under the direction of Mary Winston, will be a history of the dances from the dance of the cave men up through the Floradora girl—through the present—to a dance so vividly and startlingly futuristic that even the modern girl will gasp when she sees it. The second division will be a real old time black minstrel under the direction of Alice Moore. Thirteen artistocrats of Coon Town form a suicide club in which one member must commit suicide at every meeting. The club meets once a year and then pellets are passed around. The one, who draws the pellet black all the way through, must be the next to go. Will it be Percy Lowshoes? or Carter Glass Swanson Whatcakes? or—? Come and see. Besides this feature the second act will present a quantity of negro spirtiuals—and, of course, Jokes on you and on the faculty. The third act? That is a secret. Suffice it to say it is under the direction of Frances Potts—and we warn you not to buy your new spring frock until you see what the Juniors have under their hats. Come and see— bring your friends and your dates. The admission is only 25 cents and there are five laughs for every penny!

FRESHMEN VERSUS THE FACULTY Continued from page one more to give an exhibition snake dance. The Freshmen redeemed themselves by giving a barn-yard dance. The overall-clad youths and inimham clad maidens showed that there were dancers in the class who surpassed the ball players. In the last quarter, however, the players made a feeble attempt to retrieve, but were forced to bow to the Flashy Faculty, their superiors.

The College Orchestra is quite busy now preparing for some very important engagements in the near future. Among these, come first, the Washington Bicentennial celebration on February 22; next, Pounders Day when the orchestra plays in the college dining room for dinner; and, last, but not least, a dance orchestra program, featuring the natural dancing class under the direction of Mrs. Fitzpatrick, with orchestral accompaniment and the String Trio in special numbers. In the spring quarter the orchestra goes on the road and will appear in several neighboring towns, giving an entire evening's entertainment. A radio broadcast from Richmond over Station WRVA is also planned. The instrumentation of the orchestra is larger than last year. The organization numbers among its members some musicians from the Farmville Silver Band, and the Conservatory of Music, who add much to the ensemble.

RED AND WHITE WINS OVER GREEN AND WHITE Continued from page on« their colors and all four kept the spirti of the blue and white in the foreground for excellent sportsmanship prevailed throughout the entire evening. The teams showed the result of good preparation and hard work, for they all worked together for the team and for their class. Miss Her, coach, is especially to be thanked, for her excellent coaching and her ideal sportsmanship showed itself at all times. The Freshman-Sophomore game was close throughout, and even when the final whistle blew no one could predict the outcome. Because the teams were so evenly matched, the ball travelled from one end to the other only to be recovered by the guards and passed to the other end. The forwards of both teams rarely missed a shot at the goal which partly accounts for the close score. When the whistle blew for the end of the game the score was 26-19, Sophomore leading. The line-up was as follows: Freshmen Sophomores Beck G Kello Putney G Cooper Bosworth F Parker Hurt F Fraser Phillips C Holland Mattox S.C Sinclair Sub: Parker for Holland. Foster for Sinclair. Yeaman for Parker. Referee: Miss Helen Drinker. Umpire: Hildegarde Ross. The Junior-Senior teams were about evenly matched, and some very skillful playing was exhibtied by both teams. This game too was close and it was hard to predict the winner as the score at the first half stood 6-3, Seniors leading. The last half opened with each team determined to fight harder. The ball passed from player to player but Junior guards could not keep the Senior forwards from scoring. At the end of the game the score stood 17-5—Senior victory. The line-up was: Juniors Seniors Crute G Souders Gunter G Hundley Snedegar F Boswell Sanford F Clingenpeel Gregory C Quisenberry Potts S.C Edwards Sub: Snedegar for Crute, Ridgeway for Snedegar. Referee: Miss Helen Drinker. Umpire: Elizabeth Burger. This gives the red and whites ten points toward the color cup.
