The Inter-collegiate debating Mason at S. T. C. began on Friday night/, April 2!», when imr Frcshir.cn met the William and Mary Freshmen girls mi the question, Resolved, That colleges should train the superoir mind. Frances Wilson and Elizabeth Eichelberger of S. T. C. composed the negative team. Nella Lawson and Margaret Morris of William and Mary composed the affirmative. Decision of the judgM was two to one in favor of the negative. This is the first inter-collegiate freshman debate we have ever had at S. T. C, but we are looking forward to more in the future. On Thursday night, May 5, three of the State Teachers Colleges, Harrisonburg, Radford and Farmville, debated the question, Resolved: That Virginia Municipalities should be financially independent. Each college kept an affirmative team at home and sent a negative team to one of the other colleges. This debate is an annual event. Last year is the first time it was tried but the three colleges all seem anxious to make the triangular debate a custom. The final results of the debate are the same this year as they were last. Radford wont two; Farmville, one; and Harriaonburg lost two. r'armville's negative was composed of Daphne Gillian and Edith Asher. They won over Harrisonburg at Harriaonburg with a two to one decision. The most outstanding feature of the debate was the rebuttals of the Farmville girls which were made without previous preparatoin. The Harrisonburg girls entertained our team quite hospitably and they returned from their trip with much enthusiasm. The affirmative side of the question was defended here by Elizabeth Hutt and Ella Louise Moore against Helen Chumley and Edna Haynes of Radford. The subject which is one of especial interest at present was well handled by all the speakers. The affirmative speakers emphasized the need of financial independence as well as expressed the fact that state control does not lessen Corruption. They argued that experts should be allowed to carry on the work for municipal government, for it is as Important as other systems that require experts. The movement was stated to be revolutionary! impracticable and unjust by the negative speakers, who considered that it would be a detriment to the municipalities rather than a help. It would have a wrong effect on the State as a whole. These speeches were well prepared and well delivered so when the decision was three votes for the negative we did not feel as if we had lost but were equally proud of all participants.

"Mi mi it is in good greenwood." Merry it was on our campus last Saturday evening when we found ourselves transported to Olde England in the days of the reign of His Majesty King Richard 1. Here assembled loyal subject- [■)<■ the ci leI.ration of the May Festival. The) were all there: Robn I ood and his hand, Friar Tuck. Little John, the Pigging Friars, the Scotch, the Morris men. swonlmen. chimney Bwoeps, milkmaids, shepherdesses, the flower seller, and the gypsy. Events opened with thi contest of the knights, and after the filial combat, the victor, "Sir" Louise Poster, chose his lady. Next on the program was a game in which the children of the realm took part under the direction of Lorah Brewer and Margaret Cobb. This was followed by folk dancing; first, by the Morris men, and then, by swordmen, and by a beautiful gypay dance by Bessie Meade Riddle. The great event of every May Day is the crowning of the Queen. This year our Queen was Virginia Potts. In stately manner her procession entered Before her went her heralds; behind her came the ladies of her court. She herself, in a flower-covered sedan was borne on the shoulders of six of her lords. Her path was strewn with flowers and her crown was carried by a dainty little page, Anne Cox. Just in front of the Main entrance stood her throne; here she was crowned, and here she sat to receive the homage of her people, and to view the events of the day. The lords and ladies danced a lovely minuet before her, and the Court Jester. Lucy Haile Overbey, entertained hor wth his "gambols on the greensward." The Scotch addcl to her pleasure by giving one of their own delightful dances, and the sheperdl-s with their crooks, gay-colored frocks, and graceful movements charmed her with their beauty. A classic touch was given the occasion by the wandering minstrels, who in pantomime reproduced from Greek mythology the story of "Daphne and Apollo." The dance of the Zephyrs was truly ethereal, and Elizabeth Sawyer, as Iiahpnc, held us spell-bound with her own dancing, and with that of her artistic blackand-yellow butterflies. There was genuine sorrow for her flight, caused by the pursuit of the glorious Sun God, Grsby Peck, and her sad fate, from which not even the supplications of the Vestal Virgins could release her,

THE MAY QUEEN AND HER COURT PI KAPPA OMEGA HONOR GRADUATES I FARMVILLE TIES DEBATE HOLDS REUNION ARE ANNOUNCED WITH NORTH CAROLINA National Officers and Aluumnae Return for Annual Meetings Saturday evening marked the close of one of the most eventful and successful of the annual reunions of Alpha Chapter of Pi Kappa Omega. The reunion was a particularly significant one because the following national officers were present: President, Miss Mary Dinwiddie, of Bluefield, West Virginia. Secretary, Miss Mary Lacey of Oak Park. Virginia. Treasurer, Ifiai Julia Alexander, of N'oi fo'k, Virginia. Alpha Chapter Dire/*tor, Miss Helen Draper, i f Farmville. Beta Chapter President, Miss Elizabeth Thompson, of Harrisonburg, Virginia. Many alumnae also returned. At 2 o'clock the National officers and members of Pi Kappa Omega assembled In the Senior Parlor for the initiation ceremony of Gladys Httband, Grace Chambers and Mrs. Mae Marshall Edwards. Immediately following the initiation the annual business meeting was held in the Student Council room of the Student Building. The business meeting adjourned to be followed by a meeting of the National Council. The main problem to be solved at this meeting was the adjustment -f the scholastic requirement for adm'uNiion into the society. Relieving that Pi Kappa Omega is an ideal rather than

a set of mechanical requiramnta, the constitution was emended giving the privilege to each chapter to establish its own standards of admission requirements. There was an open meeting in the evening which the student body was invited to attend. Miss Evelyn Beckham, chairman, welcomed the members of the audience BJ guests of Pi Kappa Omega. Her annoucement of the honorary members recently sled (Continued on last pace)

Y. W. C. A. INSTALLATION SERVICES HELD HERE A very impressive service was held in the auditorium Wednesday night When the officers of the Y. W. C. A. for 1027-1928 were installed. The darkened auditorium was lighted by numerous white cadles which flickered on the white dresses of the choir and of the officers as they entered singing a hymn. Each new officer was accompanied by this year's officer for that particular place on the cabinet They marched slowly on the stage and there formed a semi-circle of white. This year's president, Rosalind Harrell made a short speech of farewell and of best wishes to the new officers. Then each old girl in turn lighted the candle of a new officer by the light of her own candle. After all the officers had been installed, the new president, Frances Willis, pledged her efforts and those of her cabinet to the work of the Y. W. C. A. for the coming year. Both the old and new cabinet members marched out bearing their gleaming candles, while the audience with full hearts Continued on page two

Louise McCormick and Evelyn Beckham Represent S. T. C. On Friday night, May 6, 1927 two members of our Debating Club, Miss Evelyn Beckham and Miss Louise McCormick debated with Mr. W. B. Kilgore and Mr. R. H. Dunlap of Worth Carolina State College in Portsmouth, Virginia. The question for discussion was most interesting: Resolved: That this house deplores the tendency toward political, economic, and social equality of the seres. Each debator was allowed fifteen minutes in which to present argument "pro" and "con", and every minute of the time was used most advantageously. Miss McCormick, as first speaker of the negative, stated that it wan indeed a pleasure to meet and discuss such vitally interesting problems, and she expressed the appreciation of the Farmville girls for the splendid courtesy shown them by the North Caroline boys from the very moment of their arrival in Norfolk. The following extract is taken from an article in the VirgnianPilot concerning the debate: "Despite the estimable and worthy endeavors of four convincing orators, representing opposing sides and disputing the great modern question of sea equality! that question still remains unsettled. This was clearly indicated last night at the conclusion of formal and enlightenng debate between representatives of the Virginia State Teachers College at Farmville and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering at Raleigh. Wilson B. Kilforc Of Norfolk and Robert EL Dunlap of Charlotte, Nr. C, staunchly upheld the affirmative of the question.

AMONG THE (APS AND GOWNS EDITH CORN WELL

During the first week in May the Student Body was entertained at chapel by special programs arranged for the celebration of Music Week. i'he programs were well-adapted to meet the various tastes of the students, 'and were artisticaly )rjven. On Tuesday morning, the High School Choral Club of the Training School sang for the students, under the direction of Miss Virginia Vincent. The Choral Club of the College, led by Miss Mary Vaughan, entertained on Wednesday morning with snugs which the breath of Spring was delicately woven. Thursday afternoon stands out as the most successful day of the week, because of the memorable recital executed by the students of Mrs. William Gills. As a part of the program Mrs. Watkins, of Hampden Sidney gave an interesting and enlightening talk on Beethoven. This talk was a fitting instroduction to the selections, which were so skillfully rendered by Misses Mary Vaughan and Virginia Vincent. The program was a triumph of esthetic art. On Friday morning the students were given an opportunity to appreciate the ability of the junior branch of the Training School Choral Club. This division of the Choral Club is composed of members from the sixth and seventh grades, and is a worthy addition to the Choral Club. Music Week at S. T. C. was a distinct success, thoroughly enjoyed by every member of the school. Saturday morning, Virginia Vincent, Elizabeth Hairston, Agnes Trotter and Mary Vaughan successfully completed Music Week by giving a remarkable version of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony as a two piano
