Fair. Mr. and Mis. (',. |.. Miller, of Newport News, announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their daughter Helen to Mr. Jefferson Curl Phillips of I lampton. Another editorial from a second Richmond paper, pa\mg a beautiful tribute to the memory of Mis. Hula Young Morrison, has been handed to the Alumnae Editor. We are proud that she was once one of us, ;md feel that her life mav be an inspiration to others: A D< >CTOR ' >!•' BROKEN HOPES. Perhaps it was not until they read with a shock this morning the news of her sudden death that even those who knew her well reflected what a remarkable woman Eula Young Morrison really was. She had more than the normal suffering and hardship one hard stroke after another—hut she never lost her courage or her faith in mankind and she never turned despairingly inward eyes that forever were looking aboul for opportunities of service.

M.. as she was coming home from the newspaper office where she worked, she was accosted by a man in uniform who insisted on escorting her. Mrs, Morrison protested in vain, and finally, seeing there was not a police officer in sight, tried another method. She began an honest, heart to heart talk with the WOUld-he Lovelace, who proved to he a lonesome boy; and before she had reached her home she hail him faith in teats. He left her. at her front door, with thanks and apologies pathetically mixed. When she became head of the new business department of the Federal Trust Company, Mrs. Morrison speedily launched several enterprises of marked originality. She made her office a center for the activities of women. She inaugurated die fust window displays a Richmond hank (Continued on page 3.]

HOW HIGH ARE YOUR IDEALS? Every once in a while you read an item like this in the newspaper: "This is the fifty-sixth birthday of the Hon. John Jones. Many letters and telegrams of congratulation were received. but no special celebration was held. Mr. Jones spent the day in his office as usual." Such a paragraph always excites my curios ilv. I wonder what went on in the brain of the
Honorable John Jones whUe he was alone in his private office "as usual." For if von could know exactly whal a man thinks about'himself on his birthday, you would have a pretty good idea as to just about how big a man he is. \ man's birthday is a time when by natural instinct he thinks about himself. ( hie more year he has bad the privilege of living upon this earth and what is the result? [s the world a better place because of Ills living here? Is he a better man because of another year in which be could improve? Mas the past year been a profitable one. has he accomplished what he set out to do? This depends upon what his goal was, how high he bad set bis ideals. Some men are BO shallow that they will spend the greater part of each birthday in checking over their accounts and congratulating themselves upon their increase in worldly wealth. These men have reached their goal and are satisfied; but do they ever recall the words of thai great poet, Robert Browning, " \ man's reach ihould exceed hi- grasp, or what's a heaven for?" Other men come up to each successive birthday With a sense of dissat isfaction, a feeling that their years are stealing away from them and thev are doing nothing,

"THE TOY SHOP" First Dramatic Presentation of the Year. Saturday evening at 8 o'clock, Misses Edna Spear, Jeanette Edwards and Mary Haynea presented in the Normal School auditorium the kindergarten children of the Training School, assisted by young ladies of upper grades, high school, and Normal School in the "Toy Shop," written by MUs Spear. The scene was laid in a toy shop. The three chief characters were the toy maker, the child and the fairy. ()ther than these, there were all sorts and kinds of toys such as dolls of all descriptions, teddy hears, jumping jacks, elephants, tin soldiers, and finally Punch and Judy, and the nice dog. Toby. The dolls were on their very l>est behavior and performed all kinds of tricks for the entertainment of the audience. Even the elephants, big and clumsy, executed a dance.
ever put on—most excellent window displays they were. .She organized what she termed a "private employment agency," which was very dear to her heart. In reality it was more a hospital for hroken hopes than an employment agency. She found the strangest people in the strangest places and set to work in the strangest fashion to fit them where they belonged. Probably there was nothing in Richmond quite like this work. Her only explanation of it was that she was interested in people. Now and again she would make a discovery of some man whom she regarded as an unrecognized power for good. Quite often she was satisfied that people who passed by with a hare nod possessed real ability. Forthwith she hecame their hooster—and was insistent that her friends he also. What a company it would he if all those she helped and cheered were gathered to do honor to her memory and to her ideals!
