Fame of Many of Cast Gained in Previous Performances "The Return of Peter Grimm," by David Belasco, will be given in the auditorium Friday night, April 12, at 8 p. m. This play with its unusual theme and splendid presentation promises to be one of the biggest and best attraction? of the year. The cast is supported by girls who have proved their dramatic ability in the past, and who play their parts with a skill near to perfection. Etta Marshall, who plays the lead. has shown her versatility many times in taking character parts in plays. Her big hit was made in her freshman .^ear when she was "Miss Phoebe," a quaint old maid, in "Quality Street." Her ability to play the part of a crochety old gentleman was displayed last year in "Trelawney of the Wells," when she took the role of Sir William Gower. Again we saw her in an entirely different type as the whimsical painter, Mr. Bodie, in "A Kiss for Cinderella." As Melisanda, the heroine of "The Romantic Age," given last commencement, she showed us that she could successfully play the part of a dreamy, romantic girl. Although Etta has won fame in a variety of roles, she will no doubt reach the pinnacle of success at S. T. C. in the character of Peter Grimm, a part which is admirably suited to her ability. Mary Ellen Cato is the heroine of the play. She won for herself a reputation in dramatic art when as Rose Trelawney she contributed so much to the success of "Trelawney of the Wells." Have you heard that Virginia Cox is the hero? Certainly Continued on page three

WE LOOK AT OUR OFFICERS-ELECT

Six girls were elected Tuesday to head the six major organizations of our extra-curricular activities. As we consider the girls, we find that each has had successful experience in the particular organization which she now heads. If the future takes its promise from the past, then we have reason intellectually to expect success under the leadership of these girls. Emotionally, we expect it—our vote is evidence. We confidently entrust to them the chare to "carry on" at a higher level than we have reached before. We depend upon them to keep vitally alert the forces of spirit which have grown a part of us and our college, and to which we look for unfailing guidance. With their election, they pledge to us their time, their efforts, their personality, as much as their positions need. Having been elected by us as leaders they are ours We arc always glad to publish any desirable article or for service.

communication that may be sent to us. We wish, however, to call attention to the fact that unsigned correspondence will not be published.

IT IS AN OPPORTVNITY Someone has said that troubles revolve in circles; therefore they come back to us, but opportunities travel in straight lines and never return. Swiftly, oh, so swiftly they go by--golden opportunities for self-improvement and service. 1),. we realize that they will never return? It is true thai some which may seem the same to ill may come again, but they will not be the same. Like minutes they pass and are gone, and we have no power to call them back again. College life is an opportunity. Some girls do not think so. Some think and speak of their life here as If it were a burden thrust upon them, .he they do not know thai many girls are working days and lying awake long into the nights trying to plan some way by which they may spend at leasl a year In college; yet the world is full Of such. Had the "burden" not been thrust upon \ou and me. we, too, might have been victims of such circumstances. Had the opportunity that is yours and mine been theirs, they might be thinking and speaking ot ii as such. Julian Green In his book, "The Closed Garden," tells of a girl who became insane because she was denied opportunities for friendships and self-improvement. Jusl such opportunities as come to you and me everyday she craved. May we take advantage of them while we may. and when prone to pass one by. may we remember that a past opportunity means an opportunity -one forever. L. S.

our representatives. The new officers beginning their tasks, lacking the foresight and strength that comes with experience, require now more than at any other time, absolute cooperation, sympathy, and enthusiasm of the student body. They have a right to demand it—was it not the students who placed them in their positions? There are nearly a thousand of us—enough surely to make light the burden of a few. Strange it is, however, how easy it is to slip our part to our leader's shoulder, and how heavy her load becomes! We are a group of people, ever changing, ever growing, capable of amazing accomplishments and failures, according to our desire. A group—a mob—is deputed to be rarely dependable. This must be a discouraging fact to new leaders. Then they remember that this group, the student body of the Teachers' College, is not a mob. but an association of interesting, responsible individuals, each of whom will do her part toward perfecting the whole. As they remember, so we resolve: we shall not fail them! OUR CAMPUS When we go into a stiange place we judge the people living there by the appearance of the premises. So it is with schools. If the campus is not attractive, the school is judged likewise by it. Paper, rags and trodden, paths go to make a very unattractive campus. Now, to give our campus the best appearance is not one girl "a job. The lawn keepers may do their part, but we, the girls, must cooperate. To do this, requires very little time, but much careful thinking. When we are in a hurry and want to cut across the campus, let us not forget that trodden paths are unsightly and that our cement walks were made for us to walk on, in order that we may save our verdant grass to beautify our campus. When we go to Gilliam's, or elsewhere- to get articles, let us have some consideration, and put the paper in our pockets rather than on the campus. We take pride in our Alma Mater and want to make her the most attractive and progressive in the State. Let U8 co-operate with the cleanup campaign in Farmville beginning April 7, and be listed among the boosters.

Every spring, at just this time of the year, there seems to he a certain little something which whispers to me and a tiny little voice which says, "The flowers are blooming; God's world is becoming most gloriously beautiful ;the spirit of the great outof-door life is calling. Come to camp! Come and lift up your eyes unto the hills. Come, and in this life, exempt from public haunts, find tongues in trees, books in running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.

VIRGINIA RAINE Virginia, better known as Raine, has an appeal that all of us desire, but few of us have. Perhaps that appeal lies in her poise and graciousness, but then perhaps it may be that it lies in her fun-loving spirit, at any rate we know that her ideals, her ambitions, and her executive abilities have giv- < en untold services to our Alma | Mater. Few girls have held as high and responsible positions as she, and have carried them through with as high-flung banners at success. From her start here in her sophomore year till this her last year with us, she has given her various talents to numerous organizations. She has all the qualities of a leader and an executive, but still she is ever mindful of the small, thoughtful things that make up so vital a part of our every day life. So as we see her ahead

Spring is here! Of course it is. Haven't you been out on the athletic field and watched the baseball practices? What better proof do we want to say that spring has come? For Bprhlg to modern America spells ' ■■ baseball." Practices are held every afternoon and Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors are expected to be on hand to help their classes on to victory. So come out you unrecognized Babe Ruths and knock a few home runs for your class.

FIELD AND TRACK The last part of the athletic year is devoted to field and track, and herein lies a chance for everyone. Whether you run, jump or throw, there is a chance for you Just come out to the athletic field at the scheuuled time and you'll have a chance to surprise us all and show just what you can do. Are you tired, weary, of so much studying; do you feel worn out? Do you fall asleep in class, only to awaken with a start upon hearing your name called? Then you have contracted a severe case of spring fever and the Athletic Association holds out to you a free cure for it; it is to come out to the athletic field and work, work, work hard.

APPRECIATION OF WORK WELL DONE We have had many heads of sports and they were more or less interested in their work, but wh-.-n it comes to real interest and real efficiency, we think that the prize goes to Claudia Fleming, the head of volleyball for the past season. Every afternoon she was out for practice and she always saw that the net was taken down after practice and that the court was well lined and the balls in good condition. Also at the end of the season she took down the net and saw that it was put away where it belonged. This may not seem a very big thing to some of us, but when we take into consideration the fact that the head of the department has to do the things that the girls who are appointed are too uninterested to do, we see that it means a great deal to have each girl de her work well. Therefore, we wish to express our appreciation of the splendid cooperation which we receiv• d from Claudia and our hope that she will always be as interested and efficient as we have found her to be.
