Festival To Be Presented At Longwood Saturday at Five O'clock


Delegates from all parts of the State gathered at S. T. C. Farmville, for the fourteenth annual convention of the Virginia Federation of Music Clubs and the Virginia Music Teachers State Association, on Monday, April 17 and lasted through April 21. A meeting of the certification committee and the first session of the state board examinations for music teachers applying for certification were highlights of the first day's program. Tuesday's program was featured as junior day—the concerts and contests, and the presentation of the college's training schools gave a gala program enjoyed by an interested audience. The contest winners gave a most valuable program at 8 o'clock in the main auditorium. On Wednesday the Federated Clubs held a board meting, followed by a joint convention session, and an annual banquet was held at 6 o'clock in the dining hall of the college. The appearance of two nationally known master musicians, Louise Bernhardt of the Chicago Opera Company and Dr. John Thompson, of New York, expert pianist and instructor, marked the fourth day of the Music Convention. Miss Bernhardt, who was winner of the last national young artists contest fostered by the National Federation of Music Clubs, probably afforded the music lovers their greatest treat of the entire convention. Dr. John Thompson conducted a master class Thursday morning. The S. T. C. choir and the Hampden-Sydney Glee Club, directed by Prof. Alferd H. Strick, gave a concert in the afternoon. On Friday, the concluding day, the college choral contests were held, followed by a Wagnerian lecture by Dr. Julia E. Schelling of Washington. The concluding event of the convention was the choral luncheon held in the dining hall. At this time Harrisonburg was given much applause as winner of the college choral contests. A unison chorus of Harrisonburg. Sweet Briar, and Mary Baldwin colleges was highly appreciated by the entire body of music lovers. With the Washington and Lee Glee Club showing thei rspiirts with "A Bottle of Rum" and the Farmville choir girls giving a "clang" with "The Bells," the convention closed the fourteenth annual session.


The installation of the new Student Council was held Monday night in the auditorium at 7 o'clock. Rev. H. B. Lipscomb delivered the invocation Then Jane Royall made an address. She expressed her sadness in leaving the position of student body president but she showed us what valuable experience in school life she gained in serving us in this manner, since being on the government is an honorable way of serving one's school. Then too, such positions make our ideals higher and better prepare us for the future. Jane welcomed the incoming Council, telling them of the great responsibility which is theirs for this year. As an objective for the incoming Council, she hoped that this year's Council with the compete cooperation of the students would make the fiftieth year of this institution the most successful of all the years to come. Jane then installed Alice McKay, the incoming president. Alice talked to us telling us what a pleasure it was going to be to serve us. She asked for our friendship and help. In spite of her inexperience she is determined to make next year a memorable one. "With us she can do anything; without us nothing." She then gave the oath to the remainder of the officers, class representatives, and ex-oflicio members. Dr. Jarman pointed out to us the splendid results of the retiring cabinet. It is an honor to be singled out by your fellow students to hold such high offices. He also asked for active, intelligent aid of the whole student body. It is our duty to uphold each other. He admonished us not to let thoughtlessness get into our bones now that spring has come, and forget our regulations. He ended by hoping that the cabinet would utilize sympathy and mercy.

Le Temp Passant 2nd Payments Due The book must go on. We have to have so many dollars and a great number of cents if we are going to get it back from the printers at the earliest possible date. Forget about psychology and education—don't talk of biology—ignore dplomacy—health and individual differences. Remember it is your book, girls, so get to work. Eat it, sleep with it, hide it in your hair, meet it on the corner next Saturday night and escort it home, bite a chunk of it when you get up in the morning! But, get those second and third payments in!—Partly copied from Ye Doomesday Book of George Washington University.

DR. W, M. ANDERSON SPEAKS AT CHAPEL Dr. W. M. Anderson of Dallas, Texas, spoke to the student body at chapel on Tuesday. He has been speaking to the students at Hampden-Sydney college for several days this week. Dr. Anderson travels extensively, meeting and speaking to students, besides being pastor of a large church In Dallas. Dr. Anderson gave advice about how to get the best out of life. He listed the attributes necessary for a young person if he is to live a full, abundant life. A person must have honesty of spirit, a cheerful heart, and must be willing to work hard. Dr. Anderson reminded us that young people will miss the whole pathway of life if they do not open their hearts to spiritual experiences. Only men and women of great faith are tht ones who have had the greatest and most beautiful experiences. A God who can make or create life is a great enough God to trust.

( ONGRA 77LATIONS A. A.! For a long lime the 1933 athletic c, ui ell has fi I the need for more iennto courts. With their customary efficiency, they have been working hard to real need. After trying for over six months, they have finally been able to get these new courts made, and they will be ready for playing in a few more days. With depression at its height. ;he athletic council should be conlated foi being able to get these DOW courts. "Where there's a will, there's a way" can truthfully be said of the 1933 athletic council. The stuL cut body appreciates their efforts and will enjoy the use of these courts all the more because they were gotten by such an enthusiastic organization.

OUR MAY DAY Saturday. May 6. the annual May Day celebration of our college will be given at the amphitheatre at Longwcod. The beauty of our May Days has become known throughout the state, and they have recently been recognized as one of the most beautiful presented in the state. This is due to the hard work and time spent on them by the faculty and students, and to the cooperation of everyone concerned. A general comittee is appointed each spring to work out in detail the May Day for next spring. For a year this committee works on the theme, the music, the dances, the costumes, and every minute thing that might enter into the giving of a May Day. Then, by the first of April, a number of specific committees are appointed, every character in May Day is chosen and real practice begins. May Day this year is expected to be the prettiest one ever presented by the Farmville girls. Not only is it beautiful but educationally valuable as well. It is to be an Old English May Day with Robin Hood as its central theme. The theme and costumes are all worked out for the time in which Robin Hood and his merry men inhabited the Sherwood Forest of England. Robin Hood, Little John. Will Scarlet, Friar Tuck, Allan-aDale. the Sheriff of Nottingham, Maid Marion, Annabelle. and all of the other friends of Robin Hood will be seen in person in their natural surroundings. Rich colors, flowing skirts, knightly men and pretty maidens will caminate the stage at Longwood when our May Day gets under way Saturday, May 6.

I think if every one c~uld experience for one week the life of some officers here in school there would be manifested a more sympathetic and cooperative spirit toward the officers and the various activities they have planned and worked over for us. As there is no appropriate way for i ach of us to tell the officers and those who have assisted that we appreciate them for the splendid work they have done we can give the new councils and staffs our very best cooperation.

We ■Sting from the renowned i den over the beautiful S. T. C. din::' ball. As I look around at :■ -unshed guests I find among them many celebrities—all dressed hi U i tl roof garden garb—what an ; ting crowd! Come on over, hen ll plenty of room for you and your family, and you have three iriire hours to enjoy the fun before sun-down which is closing time. Arrd now my dear friends I want to Introduce your radio pal. Miss Harriet BCoomaw who is none other than Miss Chic, ti\e celebrated authority on style. Ah! Miss Chic, tell your vast audience some of your latest style hints. Uo everybody, this is Miss Chic speaking. Before I tell you all the ducky little secrets that I have for you. I, too, want to urge you to come on over to this darling rendezvous of the elite. "My dears, if only you could be with me here in this beautiful town and see the pres-shus costumes that I see every hour. They are simply lavishing! This morning at breakfast I noticed the scarcity of cosmetics— now its really not at all smart to rouge your cheeks and lips so early in the morning—just be your natural self! The best dressed, say. far irrnce, Miss Mary Banks Sullivan or Miss Billie Wilkinson, usually wear a light weight coat. To classes the distinguished run to bright colors. Miss Elma Rawlings in a solid blue shantung—exquisite— Martha Gunter in a blue pin stripe gingham, Miss Bug Byrd in a white trimmed cotton with green of rather an extreme cut. or Miss Winnie Richards in a green flowered voile wrth yellow anklets, all lend bits of color—or should we say little rays of sunshine—to the ever changing scene. On the tennis courts we find Miss Elizabeth Walthail in bright green ihoits and white blouse: Miss Alice Moore in a dark blue sleeveless sweat i .•, white shirt, and blue skirt, or Miss Sarah Beck in a white sun-back tennis frock trimmed in red. On the athletic field the usual costume is black sateen bloomers and white shirts, or else shorts of some color. Miss Virginia Hamilton in her blue shorts makes a striking picture, as dees Miss Hildegarde Ross with her black bloomers and ruffled blouse. In the drugstores we see every type of dress—from print to chiffon. Ah! my dear friends, I find that my time is up and here I have only told you a small portion of the cute hints that I had for you.

THESE What were the things I loved most to iee? —Green rose leaves with a vivid inside Moving them over the sunlit tree, Spreading them wide. What were the things my hours were for —Strength to work in the morning light, Friends to find by the noontide door, Peace at night, VVrat shall I hold, the day I tinToo much to every wake from sleep?

WAITING The tide swells to the waiting shore With wave on wave, no less, no more, And nothing in the power of men Can turn it from its goal again. With patience then, the ships abide— There is no ebb until full tide. So pass the hours, one by one, With unstayed rhythmic unison, No need to grieve, no need to fret Or cloud our souls with vain regret. The darkness has not come to stay, No night can keep the dawn away. Edith Tatum
