ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLAYS EVER GIVEN HERE COURSE I. WINS COMMENDATION BY PRESENTATION One is never too old to enjoy fairy stories, and Sleeping Beauty presented on Friday night, May 10, gave the audience a delightful glimpse into fairyland. The curtain opened lm a woodland scene, where later the fairies and Ucs gathered from their woodland haunts. The queen of the fairies had just joined her subject! when a message, announcing the christening of the little daughter of the king and queen, was delivered. The fairies at once decide to lie present. The next scene was that of the christening of the baby. How the good fairies turned the wish of the wicked witch of death to the Princess to a hundred years' sleep was skillfully portrayed. In the third scene, the princess, now a young maiden, finds her way to the attic of the palace. She sees an old woman spiiinniim. and alter watching her a while decides to try to spin herself. She pricks her finger with a spindle and (alls into a sleep of a hundred years. The last scene brought the Prince Charming to the sleeping court to awake the princess from her long sleep. And as with all fairy -t' tie-, they lived happily ever after. Mis- Margaret Murphy very ahly directed the presentation of Sleeping Beauty. Much credit for it success is due to the participant- in the play, and the costumes were very elaborate and estive of a verdant atmosphere,

Shadow- exist because the sun shines; the pangs of separation are severe when associations and companionships have been happiest. The past few years hold for the graduates of 1924 many bright memories, some unique; the future has in -tor*' new experiences which will tend to dim the old. One value of membership in local alumnae chapters is keeping these memories alive through social and business gatherings. The songs and gay reminiscences of the Winchester chapter evoked a spontaneous tribute to the Farmville spirit from an outsider. To these chapter meeting! the members bring news they have collected about other alumnae ami the College, and thus they keep in touch with their Alma Mater. The chapters, through knowledge, will then be ready to cooperate ;,a unit, iii the large project! of the College, whether they function locally upon the campus, as our Student Building, in which we have so much pride, or whether they are part of State-wide movements, like the Alumni Council work inaugurated last year for the advancement of education. Participation as a body in affairs of community interest is another way in which local chapters can prove their worth and the efficiency of their training here The reaction will be attention and interest focused more directly upon the College, and more high school graduates turned in this direction. These are .nine of tin' ways in which alumnae can -till experience the joy of loyal service to their Alma Mater They will doubtless find others. The Association of Alumnae welcomes the classes of 1924 most cordially as worthy recruits in this rapidly growing organisation.
