Discouraged and hungry for something that could lift me out of the depths of despondency. I entered the small, dimly lighted chapel and lowered my head. My eyes tightly shut I uttered a silent prayer, brief—yes. but it came from my innermost heart. I asked God for the strength to do that which I ought to do and for the strength to discern between right and wrong, and then I thanked him that I could come "into the house of the Lord". An organ played softly as if it sounded from afar off—beautiful sweet music for which my soul did long to hear. When I lifted my head silent figures were taking their places and some were moving toward the door. A voice was singing—a high clear voice. My eyse sought the cross, and there they rested; I could not draw them away, for my mind was upon another cross, less tangible, perhaps, but more glorious, and to me at that moment, nearer and more meaningful. Finally—I do not know how long I sat there—I left the chapel —the one place where I could find the answer—the something which my whole self begged to feel and to be reassured of. There, way above me. was the evidence which before I had been too blin^ to see. The whole universe gave witness to the fact that God is everywhere, reassured me of the creation, and of the entity of an all-powerful being. Before my faith was hazy, incompetent. The rush of everyday life had shut out to me that something I needed. I was too busy to look into myself. Now. at that moment I was strong because I relied upon a source other than my meager self. If there were others there, and I know there were, who felt when leaving a new sense of reverence, of renewed strength as I myself did. then vespers in the beautiful little church were truly a gift from God. In this mad rush of life, do we not all feel at some time a keen desire to get off somewhere by ourselves, just to let up for a few minutes? For vespers which offer just such a let-up period at the end of a busy day, I am indeed profoundly thankful. The Virginian Staff would like this opportunity to thank the faculty and each student for their excellent cooperation and helpfullness during our seige of taking pictures this past week. This year we undertook a big task in trying to do individual and group pictures in the same week. The outcome was satisfactory and the accomplishment of our goal could never have been realized had it not been for you. It is our aim and earnest hope that we may be able to give you a Virginian worthy of you and your spirit

Hitler's Outstretched Hand "And let those who consider war a better solution reject my outstretched hand." So spoke the Great Dictator to the world in a speech that lasted well over an hour last Friday morning

It was not a speech

that one would expect a conqueror to make. It was the kind of speceh that we


even suspect our own President Roosevelt to make—except that regardless of much rigid criticism the world respects the word of Mr Roosevelt—we have faith in him— such is not the case where Mr. Hitler is concerned. If England and France could believe that this time the Fuehrer means it when he says, "It goes without saying that I wish to spare my own people this suffering," not perhaps but definitely they would accept his "outstretched hand." But England remembers Munich and France is scared. England and France are, we believe, a little to conscious of the fact that if they "back out"—if they accept Hitler's terms "dean" old England will lose a little of her prestige in "squirming" out. Germany Unconquerable "Neither force of arms nor lapse of time will conquer Germany. It is infantile to hope for the disintegration of our people," Hitler declared A brave and boasting statement—yes, perhaps. "Dead men tell no tales" as the old saying goes. A cry rises from the Democracies "Crush Germany— get her out of the way—kill Hitler." It was only twenty-one years ago this fall that the world celebrated in great length what the world believed was the death of Germany and the funeral dirge was played with hilarious shouts of "lasting peace" around the world. But there has been no peace. Certainly the economic struggle that came after the war could not have been called peace. Certainly the world depression which we remember so vividly could not have been called peace. Yes, kill a man and he tells no tales, but knock a man down and kick him while he lays powerless to move and spit out a lot of verbal "you do this and you do that," hand him a piece of paper and he'll sign it—but as sure as that man is a man, he'll get up again. And if for no other reason than because he's human, he'll seek revenge- Now, if it were possible to kill every single German alive then we would say, if that is what you want, go right ahead ( a nice Christain way of looking at the matter), but such is not the case. America tn the Rescue Should the allies accept Mr. Hitler'B plan? Can they believe him when he says there will be (1) a renunciation of further territorial claims, save for his old colonial demands; (2) a declaration that Germany and Soviet Russia together would relieve one of the acutest danger spots of Europe by working for a peace zone; (3) a specific statement to the world that he has no designs on the smaller states of Europe; and (4) that Germany will work out a satisfactory plan of dividing the nationalities in the fallen Poland. If they don't, and they apparently and emphatically are not going to accept his plans, what then? Already we hear rumors of America going to the aid of the allies. Already the influence of propaganda has reached us and we have heard on this very campus such statements as "The United States will go over and show Hitler a thing or two."

Arrangements for the individual lessons arc being made by the Athletic Association. Instruction will be given on the Longwood golf course. Mr. Brown came to Farmvllle last week from Clifton Forge, Va.. where he spent the past summer. He has been teaching golf for eight years, first In Ohio for three years and then during the winter at a country club in Mississippi. Mr. Brown also spends three months of each year participating In tournaments. Among the students and members of the faculty who have signed up to take golf lessons from Mr Carol Brown are Mary Prince Arnold, Ellen Bowen. Mae Detail, Nancy Dupuy. Dorothy Fischer. Nancy Hopkins. Helen Long. Evelyn Lupton, Helen McIlwaine, Essie Mlllner. Elizabeth Philpotts. Mary Gray Thompson. Nancy Wolfe. Miss Mary Barlow. Miss Olive Her. Miss Frances Hauck. Miss Adele Hutchinson and Miss Grace Moran.

By "Boo" BdTham Did you know or had you heard —there's a professional golfer, around these parts! He is Mr. Carroll Brown from Roanoke. His being here sounds like a perfectly beautiful opportunity 'cause he's giving lessons out at Longwood. All you gals who have had visions of yourselves breezing around a golf course in par. knowing which club to use. when and what kind of a shot to make at what time, better get busy and sign up for a session. He'll probably be having you playing circles around everybody else in no time. No stuff, now! Archery is certainly a thriving pastime at this point. About a week ago there were only 26 signed up—which is doing all right ;but come last practice there were 54 people shooting arrows around on the hockey field. What is this fatal charm archery possesses? It sounds interesting! Anyhow, we're all for you archerers! May you be a second William Tell, If you can find any trusting soul who will let you shoot apples off her head to prove your worth.

FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE Class hockey games will start in a very short while. You classes, better be getting your cheering sections together. We're counting on a lot of real pep and enthusiasm, and a huge amount of support mentally and vocally for all the teams. Don't forget that Water Carnival, either. It still promises to be an extra-special one. and it won't be long before October IB will arrive. Another nice thought! As soon as it gets cooler, we'll be having "play nights" again—some more of those bridge game playing sessions In the Student Building and Y. W. Lounges. The best eats.
