Dr. Walmsley Win Diamond Key

Presented to Dr. Jarman

As a result of the debates won at the South Atlantic Forensic Tournament, held at Winthrop College. Rock Hill. South Carolina. Dr. Walmsley and Agnes Bondurant are both entitled to the highest honor—that of Special Distinction which is conferred by Pi Kappa Delta, national forensic fraternity. Dr. Walmsley gains the honor for having coached five students who won the Special Distinction degcee and Agnes, for having won seven debates during three years of college debating. Both now have the privilege of wearing the diamond-set key. emblem of the degree of Special Distinction. Though Agnes has been debating for three years, she took part in only non-decision debates during her sophomore year. Therefore, heii record of winning debates has been made during her Junior and senior years. This record has been made possible largely by her attendance at two debating tournaments. Before this year, this honor has been conferred upon only four girls at S. T. C. since Pi Kappa Delta was installed at the college. FranContinued on Page 5, col. 2

celebrations. This year, in spite of increased numbers which caused the "doubling up" to be more intensive, the hearty welcome with which our alumnae are accorded did not lack the usual enthusiasm. The students were eager to show their guests all the hospitality which is the tradition of the college. All alumnae naturally appreciate a return visit to S. T. C. However, the entertainments arranged in their behalf must certainly have increased their enjoyment and

reaffirmed their belief in the progress


the College. This year's anniversary is a reminder that the basketball team has improved under wise guidance, that the artistic ability of the girls is being nurtured and trained, and that those interested in water spurts have been given access to a modern (rimming pool through the foresight of Dr.

Jarman. The Founders" Day Committee and the entire faculty are not to be forgotten as workers for the betterment of the College and as makers of a better anniversary Celebration.

The demonstration of a smooth-playing, cooperative team, as well as the exhibition Of sensational plays, which characterised the basketball game with Barrisonburg aroused the enthusiasm of the student body to highest pitch.

These Three To feel, through years is mystic silence pass, That all is right; To know that each long, speechless month but leads Toward the light— That, dear, is Faith. To think with each new morn, mayhap some word Will come today. Yet bearing disappointment with a smile At each delay— That, dear, is Hope. To trust through evil days, forgiving all That may have passed. To hope, to trust, to know that like and strength Will come at lastThat, dear heart, is Love. Does It? When you're heartsick, discouraged and tired, And nothing seems right anywhere; When you're all out of tune with the world'— Does it help you to know that I care? When you sympathy need, and your load Seems almost too heavy to bear. Although I speak never a wordDoes it help you to know that I care? When the world is all sunny and bright, And the pleasures of others you share, Does it add to jour joy Just a bit— And help you to know that I care? So, Friend, as the years pass us by.

A committee. Miss G. Elizabeth Rawls chairman, was appointed in 1935 to investigate the matter of some insignia for alumnae, esspecially for non-graduates, to secure a design and find out the probable cost. The committee, after making a report of the results of its study, was continued and directed to consult with the Alumnae Council. Miss Moran and her Methods Class in Geography extended an invitation to all alumnae to visit an exhibit of a unit of work on geography and DO b.~ served a cup of tea. Mrs. Davis spoke of her attendance last April with Mis. Coyner as delegates to the meeting in Washington of the American Association of Alumni Secretaries, from which real inspiration and helpful suggestions for alumnae activity were derived. Miss Florence H Stubbs and Miss Leola Wheeler were unanimously elected honorary members of the Association of Farmville Alumnae. Details of some of the business of the morning are included in article* appearing in this issue of The Rotunda.

for observance in the school and by alumnae throughout the State as Farmville School Day. During "Better School Weak much interest was aroused among the students and faculty in the fund that was being raised I erection of a Student Building. The class of 1911 was the Brat to make pledges toward this fund. In 1920 a resolution was adopted that students, alumnae and all interested in the selv.iol I'.ive their hearty support and contributions to the erection of the Student Building. The building was erected and each year on Founder's Day, students, and alumnae contribute to this fund. Out of "Normal School Day" grew the idea of Founders' Day. The date was changed from December 11 to March 7 which date marks the day that the bill 1 tablishing a Normal School at Farmville passed the State Legislature. On March 7, 1921 the pj | real Founders' Day was celeb Miss Taliaferro was chairman of the committee in charge. And so the purpose of ' I School Day" is being fulfilled each years as student, alumnae, and friends gather at Farmville to witness the progress of the school and lay on their Alma Maters ihrlM their gifts to make chool greater."
