Roman Banquet S. T. C. Alumnae Alpha Kappa Gamm a "Life Begins at 8:30" 1st Proves Successful Stage Style Show Scheduled Feb. 14 For Sigma Pi Rho School Girls Model Recognizes Leaders Radio City Scene Of Sophomore Production The Sophomore Class' musical production "Life Begins at 8:30" will be presented on February 14 at 8 o'clock in the large auditorium. Radio City is to be the scene of night life in a typical American metropolis. The radio hall is visited by four young couples; Mary Bowles and Elinor Dunham. Chic Dortch and Katherine Hurt, Sue Mallory and Mildred Chandler, Marguerite York and Katherlne. These sight seers take in all the excitement offered in the big city, including the shops with their gay wares, clever burlesque shows, featuring numerous dancers, and the actual broadcasting studio in operation. One of the outstanding features of the broadcasting station is Mr Edwin Cralle's vocalization. Admission is to be twenty-five cents. The proceeds derived from this undertaking will be the contribution of the class for Funder's Day. The size of the cast is particularly unusual in that it includes almost every member of the class in some role. Virginia Jones has lent her untiring efforts in the capacity of director of this presentation. Merwyn Oathright is in charge of staging, while Oav Stieffen supervises dancing and Virginia Baker is official costumer. The entire class is co-operating with these girls to make the endeavor successful. With its abundant talent, colorful costuming, and attractive scenery, "Life Begins at 8:30" is anitcipated with enthusiasm by the student body.

Eaco Theatre Fire Arouses Students Last Wednesday night in the midst of studying, many of the S. T. C. girls were aroused by the sound of the Are siren. The Are which caused so much excitement was in the Eaco Theater. The girls rushed to the windows of the Student Building; others even ventured to go down to the scene of the alarm which is against the rule. Fortunately, there proved to be more smoke than fire. Little damage was done; the picture was resumed almost immediately. The "mob spirit" was exemplified in this instance.

Costumes To Typify Mardi Gras Spirit A spirit of fun and gayety will prevail on Tuesday, March 5, when S. T. C. will celebrate its third festival of Mardi Ores in the school gymnasium. Masked figures attired in gorgeous array will add to the brilliance of the gayly decorated gym while the smooth music of the HampdenSydney Collegians who have been procured for the occasion will ure the dancers on to the floor. Mardi Oras in S. T. C. is sponsored by Pi Qamma Mu, National Honorary Social Science Fraternity and they have decided that no one will be allowed to enter the gym who is not masked and does not wear some suggestion of a costume. Masks will be sold at the door. The Queen and her court are to be distinguished from the rest of the crowd by wearing evening dress. No one else will be allowed to enter wearing evening dress.

Service Committee Seeks Contributions The Y. W. C. A. Service Committee is asking for clothing, especially a coat, size fourteen, for a girl at one of the country schools. The cooperation of the Student Body is desired in order that the giil may attend school and church. If you can make a contribution, please report to Sue Waldo of the service committee.

Alumnae Chapter Has Short Meeting The local chapter of Farmville Alumnae held a short business meeting in the Lounge on Monday evening. Active committees were organized with the following chairmen: Mrs. Farrar. membership; Mrs. Jeffers. program; Miss Willie London. Social Mrs. Young, finance. Spring social and program meetings were discussed. Transportation chairman, Louise Richardson, and hostesses from the Social and Membership committees were named for Founders' Day. The annual contribution was voted for the Student Building fund to be given on Founders Day. The co-operation of the local chapter was asked in sponsoring the establishment of a Jennie Masters Tabb Memorial Fund, a proposed project for the general association. Mrs. Frank Nat Watkins outlined plans for the Alumnae Fashion Revue to be given Friday evening in the auditorium. Committees were named and tickets to be sold in town were distributed. After a further discussion of the part of every alumna in the Founders' Day celebration, the meeting was closed with a general request for alumnae news for the Alumnae Column of the Rotunda.

\ew Plan Adopted Hy Group Leaders The Freshmen have instituted a new plan with a two-fold purpose: to stimulate attendance at class meetings and to raise money. The fifteen groups. Into which the class has been divided, are competing for a prize to be given the group whose record for attendance is most nearly perfect and who raises the most funds. Group leaders are urging their members to co-operate. Tuesday night, Feb. 5, was the first time the attendance phase of this plan was put into operation. A remarkably good representation encouraged the competition and spoke well of the workability of the atentdance contest. Equally good results are expected in the financial rivalry.

Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity Holds Annual Dances The Pi Kappa Alpha held its annual set of dances on February first and second in the Comity Club house at Hampden-Sydney. A formal dance was held Friday night and dansant Saturday afternoon, followed by a buffet supper at Mrs. Clarke's home. Festivities were continued Saturday night with an informal dance. A number of girls from out-of-town as well as HampdenSydney alumni attended the dancets.

Arrayed as Romans, the members of Sigma Pi Rho held a Roman banquet February first at 8 o'clock in the Honor Room. As the guests entered they were cautioned, "Deptro pede," for the Romans believed it ill luck to enter a rom with the left foot. After a prayer had been offered to placate the gods, the guests seated themselves at the tables which were arranged in the shape of the letter—"U." according to the custom. While the first course was being served, the hostess gave a discourse on the importance of salt to the Romans. The dishes served were typically Roman, and the Roman atmosphere wa: furthered by candle-light. Between courses each guest who had come attired as some character of Roman history or literature, spoke a few words in order that the others might guess whom he or she represented. After the wine was brought in and a prayer made to the god of wine, the guests were wreathed and annointed with perfume. Then followed the last course, apples, for the Romans went, not from soup to nuts but from eggs to apples. This was the first time Sigma Pi Rho had attempted a banquet. It was pronounced a success, however, by the guests. Those present were: Llla Jacob, Carmen Clark. Jeannette Jones. Doris Moore, Claudine O'Brien, Margaret Pollard. Anne Putney, Maude Rhodes. Katherine Walton, Katherlne Adams, Miss Rice, and Dr. Walmsley.

Quiet Sought For Study Hour The House Council met Monday night to discuss a very serious question. The discussion centered on the conditions on the halls during study hour. This meeting was the result of a suggestion of the Student Standards Committee. Students' opinions were so sought, and it was found that they desire a correction of these conditions. The noise at this time is almost intolerable to those who desire quiet for study. The president of the House Council. Nell Oakey Ryan, is calling the girls of each hall together and asking their co-operation with the hall presidents. There must be absolute quiet during study hour, and lights must be turned out when the light bells ring. If the hall presidents speak to a room twice, a call down is given. Any girl who receives as many as three call downs must go to closed study hall for one week, as Dr. Jarman has secured girls to keep these study halls open for those who fail to co-operate, or to those who are especially desirous of going there during the study hour.

The local chapter of Farmville Alumnae is sponsoring a unique Fashion Revue on Friday evening, February 8 at 8 p. m„ in the auditorium. The costumes date back from our Mothers' day to advanced spring styles, which are from Baldwin's. Program Pre ude: The College Orchestra.

Students' Meetingr Held February 4th The Student Body held Its February meeting Monday night. Four "reminders" were brought before the students by the president: the conduct during chapel, especially on Students' Day: coming to the dining room late, and in insufficient and unsuitable dress; girls hanging over the Rotunda on Saturday and Sunday nights; and the great amount of noise in the library. Whether the girls receiving notes from the Student Council may get on the Honor Roll will be determined by the decision of the Council after considering the seriousness of the offense, the length of the campus term, and the number of slips they have received, The committee selected by the Student Council to appoint the girls from which the Editor of the Rotunda, the Editor of the Virginian, and the Business Manager of each of these publicatioas will be elected was approved bv the Student Body. The list Includes Lelia Mattox, chairman; Elizabeth Vassar. Janice White. Mr. Holton. and Mr. McCorkle.

Open Forum Theie is too much criticising around our campus among the students. Don't misunderstand. I'm not opposed to criticism if it is the right kind. The kind of which I'm now talking Is far from the helpful, intelligent, thought-provoking criticism which, if heeded, is the very soul of growth. No. the sort I kick against is that done in a sneering, egotistical biting manner that breaks the spirit of many who would otherwise be willing, yes glad, to give their contributions of talents and ideas to our school life. An Old French Proverb Reads Like This: "La critique est aisee et Part est difficile." The criticism is easy, and the art difficult. Is this not very true? Take, for example, teachers. Is there one among us who has not and does not even now pick our instructors to pieces? They don't grade fairly, or they're partial to Mary Jane so and so. You who are out teaching or have been, do you think those pupils you were t e a c h i n g could have done your job better than you were doing it for all your efforts? No. but doubtlessly they did. The same applies to our relations with our Instructors. I use this merely as an illustration: it Is the same in every activity, every project instigated on our campus. Those who never tried to do anything like it or are not interested in doing so, run around making belittling remarks about, and even to. those who are making an attempt to develop themselves into more socially adaptable members of society. Don't think for a minute that extra activities will not help us after graduation. Just to be a bit more specific, another illustration that is vital to all of us. There are only a few students who know the straight story behind a lot of the recent instances of campus; yet. there is no end of talk, most of which is unfounded so far as real knowledge goes. Someone gets mad. letting fall a few sarcastic digs even when she knows that she or whoever she is defending was in the wrong. Then, the ball is started rolling. You all know how fast news travels at S. T. C; most of the time half a dozen personal opinions are added to the original criticism. The whole student body gets all wrought up; the news is carried to all parts of the state by letter or word of mouth; then, outsiders take it up as authentic, spreading a bad name for a place that we. who started all the gossip, really love. It is a shame that good news doesn't often get around as quickly as the bad. I realize it would be a hard habit to form, but It would be grand If we as potential teachers could learn to give constructive criticism and could learn to do a thing ourselves before raking someone else over for not being perfect.

England's Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me: That there's some corner of a foreign field That is forever England. There shall be In that rich earth a richer dust concealed; A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware, Oave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam, A body of England's, breathing English air. Washed by the river, blest by suns of home. Day That I Have Loved Tenderly, day that I have loved. I close your eyes, And smooth your quiet brow, and fold your thin dead hands. The grey veils of the half-light deepen; colour dies. I bear you, a light burden to the shrouded sands. Close in the nest is folded every weary wing. Hushed all the joyful voices; and we. who hold you dear, Eastward we turn and homeward, alone, remember— Day that I loved, day that I loved, the night is here!

The following article appeared recently on the literary page of a Sunday edition of the Birmingham 'Ala.) News. Mrs. Agnew was Jean Cameron, of Deerfield, Va. She received a diploma from this institution in 1896. By Martha Lyman Shillito Carl Carmer. who prefaces his latest book, "Stars Fell on Alabama." with a map in which he divides Alabama into five sections, has placed the town of Lafayete at a point where Foothills. Black Belt, and Conjure Country meet. Just now interest centers in Lafayette because it is the home of the president of the Alabama Writers' Conclave. Jean Cameron Agnew (Mrs. Henry Agnew) was elected to succeed Mittie Owen McDavid of Birmingham. Jean Agnew is a good Scotch Presbyterian and takes her work seriously, which accounts in a large measure for the success which has come to her. Her enthusiasms are quiet but deep and, although she is affiliated with both state and national writers' organizations, most of her work has been done in her workshop at "Fassifern," the home of the Agnews several miles from the town. So earnest about the business of writing is this Alabama woman that she refuses to have a telephone in the house and when the master of the house Is away on business, even the radio is disconnected. "Fassifern." named for the anceatral home in Scotland and the Cameron homestead near Hot Springs. Va., Is the scene of many hospitable gatherings. The Agnews are ideal hosts and their terraced lawn, with Its rock gardens and lily ponds, make an artistic setting for the plays pageants, and alfresco, parties which are presented for guests around that countryside. Mrs. Agnew's forte is playwrighting and her achievements along this line are worth recording. Her three-act play, "A Woman in the House," won first prize a few years ago in a nation-wide contest sponsored by the Vallejo Community Players, of Vallejo, Cal.. and was presented at the Farenholt Theatre, Mare Island. Last year a oneact play won a prize from the Los Angeles County Drama Association and was presented by the Glendale Little Theater. In the annual dramatic contest the bride of Mark Anthony Pottage.

sponsored by Alabama College. Mrs. Agnew won first prize In 1932 and second prize in 1933. This year, her three-act play. "Pillard Porticos," was again awarded the Alabama College first prize. Several other plays have been published and produced. One of them, which won a national prize in a religious drama contest, was recently heard over Station API and its appeal, together with the artistic interpretation given it by the Radio Thespians, has led to numerous requests that it be repeated over the same station. Essays and feature stories have also won acclaim for the new executive of the Writers' Conclave. She was awarded The Birmingham News prize in 1928 for her essay. "How to Develop An Intelligent and Healthy State Pride In Alabama." In 1930 The Montgomery Advertiser award for the best essay on "What Has Been the Effect of Enfranchisement of Women in Alabama?" was also made for her entry. Last summer Mrs. Agnew was awarded the feature-story prize offered at the Century of Progress through the National League of American Penwomen. Her story, titled "Thirty-Six Marble Columns" was written about the huge monolithic marble columns quarried at Sylacauga, Ala., and sent to the nation's capital to be used In the construction of the new Supreme Court Building. The data was assembled for this article while Mr. and Mrs. Agnew were spending the winter at Sycharm of style and artistic presentation. Jean Agnew is a graduate of Virginia State College for Teachers and has also studied at the University of Virginia, from which institution both her father and grandfather were graduated. For many years she was a teacher of English and History in the high schools of Alabama. In 1920 she was married to Henry Drennen Agnew. who Is prominently Identified with the Comer Mills. As program chairman of the Writers' Conclave this past year, Jean Agnew should have a trophy herself to add to the collection, or so think those who attended the carefully planned programs which she so successfully arranged and carried out. She has I also served this organization as ] vice-president and historian. She I is a past president of the SelmaMontgomery Branch. League of American Penwomen and a member of the Press and Authors' Club of Montgomery.
