The National Y. W. C. A. holds its regular bicentennial convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota from May 5 to May 11. Mrs. Charles W. Gilkey. president of the Y. W. C. A. of the United States will be there. Jonkvrown C. M. Van Asch Van Wyck of Holland, who is the world Y. W. C. A. president will also be present.

Winston Cobb. the new Y. W. C. A. president for next year, and A. J. Scott, the recently retiring president, will represent State Teachers College, Farmville. The delegates to the convention will be entertained in the leading hotels of Minneapolis. These hotels have been approved and chartered by the National Committee of the convention.

Saturday. May 7th. the amphitheatre at Longwood will furnish a natural setting for one of the most colorful and beautiful May Day festivals given by the students of the college. The theme to be carried out is taken from two old Indian legends and depicts the fantastic life of the Indians. It is the story of a star who wished to come to earth and assume an earthly form among the Indian people. She appeared to a sleeping young warrior as a beautiful maiden and told him her wish. The youth appealed to the Chieftains at Council who gave their consent, and the maiden considered taking several forms but only one appealed to her. Finally she came to live in the heart | of a water lily and was happy in that she might watch her sister stars by night and the Indian children who played along the edges of the lake by day. Under the direction of Mrs. W. C. Fitzpatrick and the May Day committee the story has been worked out In careful detail, and it gives promise of being an unusual and lovely festival. Medora Ford, the quean, will take the role of the "Star Flower", and the character part of the Young Indian will be taken by Mary Shelton. The festival will begin at 4:30, and the faculty, student body, friends, and the people of Farmville are cordially invited to attend. In case of rain, the program will be postponed until Monday, May 9th.

Our Festival The sound of Indian music emerging from the scenes of practice! tells that the May Daj Festival of this year has an unusual and different theme. The costumes and the dances are unlike those of past years and pn to be even more beautiful. The theme taken from an Indian legend has been carefully worked out. The amphitheatre at Longwood will be an ideal setting for the councils of the braves and the dances of the Indians. The Festival promises to be among the best that we have ever done. I'.y cooperating with the able directors we, as students, can help make the May Day a success. We can do this hy attending practices faithfully and promptly and by doing our particular parts in the host way W6 can. Many visitors will be present, Saturday.

Appreciation A year ago today the Rotunda Stall' of 1981-32 met and planned their first issue of the paper. Today the last Rotunda

issued by the stall' is published. As members of that staff, we wish to express our appreciation for the cooperation and help that have been given us. We have enjoyed this year, it has been a pleasure to be able to write and edit the neWB of the school. To the new staff, we give our best wishes. With a hand of capable members and with the cooperation they will he given, we feel confident of the success of the Rotunda of 11)32-33.

Who is there who has never dreamed I da;. that even our l profound realist have had ome moments of day dreaming In IT lives; while many of our famous men have been very id Some one has .said that all the real things in the work! h. by dreamer.-,. ri I ms to be \ true when we con.m< 11 things that we think are great ory of our world. Supi be 'hi with Noah his ark. Who but visions would trust themselves to a woo ark, and that before the i They were dn and did not stop for reasoning. Take our late President Wilson, for i xample. He was a dreamer in a true sense. His League cf Nation p] I hows this clearly. He looked forward and dreamt I of a lime when th re would be perfect peace among the nations of the world through th; union. Edgar Allan Poe. our poet, has been called "the dreamer." His works ewe much to his feverish dreams, as they express his dreams of something he has not attained; and his yearning for the ideal was both of the heart and of the imagination. Cecil Rhodes, the great British statesman, who did so much toward uniting the British Empire, was idealistic. He believed that an association of races was necessary for the peace of the world. He dreamed of creating a connecting chain of British possessions. Dreams and ambitions are so closely correlated that it seems that anyone with ambition is. of necessity, a dreamer. He dreams of the time when his ambition will be realized. The dreams of these great men helped accomplish what they did by looking forward and glimpsing a vision of the future. However, I did not mean this to be a discussion of dreamers, but of daydreaming itself. It has its advantages and disadvantages as does everything else; and I warn you, Reader, bsfore I begin a discussion of these, that I am slightly inclined to be an advocate of day-dreaming. I shall have to admit the relative value of my adversaries point that day dreaming often hinders success rather than aids it. This is true when the person tends to dream so much that he fails to act. He may have an ambition which is worth striving toward; yet, in his pleasure of dreaming that the ambition has alread\ b2en realized, he may forget to strive Are his dreams here sufficient recompense for the goal he has failed to reach, you ask? Of course. I may answer that in dreaming he does not realize his loss; yet, I admit that not only his loss is concerned, but loss of benefit others may have derived from his success. I realize also that the physical and mental reactions to day-dreaming are not always the bast. A person who dreams too much may become moody and nervous. My answer to this is that with the swiftness of the change of thoughts that pass through our minds, we are not apt very often to dream so much of one thing that it will unbalance us permanently. There may be exceptions, turbed tempoiarily euher mentally or however, and often one may be disphysically. 'then, day-dreaming often makes us temporarily lazy. An example of this may be found here at school. We may be studying and suddenly think of something that happened Easter. When this happens, dear Reader.simply put your books away . enjoy yourself in the re-hving of a wonderful holiday. I say this because anyone who has had the experience will know that it is useless to try to resume studying. Just be sure that this door does not occur too often. (Continued on page 4)

Among Our Caps And Gowns AND THEN CAME DAWN Dreamless sleepless night Whpn staring eyes saw not the beautv of the night, i Imitless, endless nighl When dawn seemed to stop in the distance. Then— Starless, clear blue sky When night seemed to cover all in a thick veil. Wondrous, beautiful thought That cm ed me to wander to the open window—. Looking, seeing nothing Except the clear dark expanse of night Miracles, ever happening— For such a one God wrought in the coming of dawn.

FASTER SOUDERS When one thinks of Easter, he is reminded of sturdy white dogwood in a rough setting, of hair blown b from a frank, open face—of highnecked rs and American girlhood in all its glory. People never question Easter's ability to do anything requiring either Ingenuity or hard work—she fairly breaths activity and is unquestionably one of the most versatile and accomplished of this year's "Who's Who". She is dramatic, having done splendidly as one of the characters in the spring production by the Dramatic Club, "The Ivory Door." As Literary Editor of this year's annual, she has shown remarkable ability along the line of writing. Easter's poetry, contributed to the Rotunda and other literary productions, has long since been recognized as a part cf her talented self. Yet when she dons her gym clothes and flashes in and out down the smooth floor with a basketball tucked under a muscular and capable arm, one would never guess the myriad of beautiful thoughts she carries in her head—embryonic verse ready to jot dewn at odd moments in a busy lifetime. She is musical, and her intellectual abilities have been recognized in her election to Kappa Delta Pi. Beta Pi Theta, and Pi Gamma Mu. She is one of Alpha Kappa Gamma's outstanding leaders, and the spirit of Joan of Arc has truly become embedded in her heart. Above all things she is true to her Alma Mater, and the honors placed upon her all during her four years' career have been well deserved. Many years from now, memories of ivy-covered walls, perennial blossoms, and quiet columns will still be redolent with those of a girl whose character and deeds have been such an integral part of our school.

Quiet—calm—peace— No sign of life—the darkest hour had come. And then—as one who sees a vision I saw the veil of night lifted and— Gradually it was carried out of sight As quietly as the coming of fog. The gentle, easy lifting As though some Knowing Hand Pulled back the curtain And revealed the picture God had painted. At first it seemed dull-gray— Then a yellow glow—of warmth—of love— That suffused the world With the knowledge of its beauty. I drew back— Had I the right to enjoy so lovely a thing When all the world was sleeping? But yes—I saw—I felt— "I was a part of all that I had met." So I turned to enjoy the rosy hue of the coming of dawn. D. V. R.

► LILY PONS WILL SING MAY 1STII IN LYNCHBURG Lily Pons. world famous coloratura soprano, will sing In the Lynchburg auditorium. May 13. at 8:30 P. M. Lily Pons was born in Cannes of an Italian mother and a French father. When a girl sh? studied piano at the Paris Conservatoire. She only recently took up the study of singing and made her debut less than four years ago in Lokme at Mulhouse. From then on she has sky-rocketed in popularity and fame. This is now her second American season, which ushers her in as the most ta!ked-of singer of our day. This slight, almost childlike little prima donna has captured the imagination of the public. Superlatives are showered upon her and recordbreaking demonstrations of applause of quarter-hour duration are given to her. In a word, as the critic of the Cleveland Plain Dealer remarked. "A it public is hers, to have and to hold." WORLD NEWS Clipped Here and There When a man buys a meal in the Canadian Province of Quebec he is not only appeasing his own hunger, but aiding the hospitals. Not that restaurant food has been found to keep the sick lists down, but. under a measure passed by the last Legislature a 5 per cent tax must be paid on all meals costing thirty-five cents or more. Startling news for America is the omission of any provision for wardebt payments from the British budget. Ireland has the pleasure of worryin* over a deficit just 2 per cent of tnat of Uncle Sam. Columbia University will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Professor Dodgson. who wrote "Alice in Wonderland" and signed it "Lewis Carroll" thinking it too undignified for a professor of mathematics. Sometimes undignified things are mere important than others. The learned Dodgson will be remembeied for his "Alice" not for his books on Euclid. Mrs. Hargreaves. the original ' little Alice" for whom the book was writen, now 80 years old, comes to eelbrate the anniversary of one who made her famous. Was Shakespeare laughing at us when he spoke of times "as flush a May"?

Continued from paw two I have apparently mad-5 the disadi of day-dreaming appear as eemi-advai I i ye, didn't I warn you at the beginning that I was in favor of it? Her? are my reasons. First, dreams are to me inspirations I dream, and I am inspired to make that dr am come true, to make it real. I think I must have lived on dream i; for, as long as I can remember I have dreamed and worked with realization of these dreams in view. At present, to the world, my drsamfl appe ir to be centered around teaching school, as that seems to be what I am striving toward. Of course. I do dream of that; but I have another dream which inspires me. Prom not to tell? Well. I dream of being a news reporter; and I work with that end in view; hence, this disri ion which will aid me in my future writings. I dream also to "Chace Away the Blues." Who doesn't get blue once in B while when he is away at school? When I feel the blues coming I begin dreaming. Strange to say. at these times I had rather dream of something sad: my pet story beinf*— oh. I must keep seme things to myself. I dream for consolation. When we have lost a class game; for instance, the hurt is eased bv imaiining that we won, and soon the loss is forgotten. The lact advantage of day-dreaming is for pastime. When everyone else is away, and I've read all the books in my room, and I've completed my studying, and I begin to feel bored. I dream! When I have rone to bed. and my roommate drops off to sleep immediately, while I am restless and cannot sleep. I dream! This is when I enjoy dreaming the most. I make up the most pleasant and exciting stories, and. of course. I a malways the heroine. While these dreams will never come true they afford me the greatest amount of enjoyment possible at this time. Probably you will not agrse with me when I say that the advantages of day-dreaming overbalance the <!i advantages. I think that they do, if day-dreaming is not carried to such an extent that it will be harmlul rather than helpful. There should be some limti to it. I am sure, however, that you will all agree with me as to the truth of the line of one of our older popular songs, "I'm a dreamer, but aren't we all' to a certain degree?
