at Howard Payne College on Sun-

choirs of the various organizations
and schools in Brownwood. They
sang Elgar's "As Torrents In Sum-
mer." The choir also sang on Friday
March 9 at a luncheon of the Del-
ta Kappa Gama Sorority at t.he
Brownwood Country Club. Daniel
Baker College furnished the pro-
gram for the luncheon. Included
were also a piano duet by Betty
Jean Harris and Gaynelle Pierce
and vocal numbers by Myrtle Mc-
Broom. Miss B r a n o n was in
charge of the program.
A men's group from the choir
sang at the eleven o'clock service
at St. John's Episcopal Church
Brownwood on Daniel Baker Sun-
day. There is still a need for more
people to sing with the group
which hopes to make some out-of-town
appearances in Dallas and
elsewhere later in the spring. Any-
one who would like to sing and
to help in this valuable publicity
activity is welcome whether or
not he has had- any previous train-
ing or experience. This is one of
the best ways to put Daniel Baker
College before the public eye.

the discovery of oil on a farm

usual finds the oil and tries to
heist the farm from the widow for
chicken feed. The plot complicates
and thickens and then the person-
ages disentangle themselves 'mid
the strains of "pure corn not even
off the cob." A whole evening of
fun is in store for the whole town.

lege have never seen the like of
this dramatic presentation which is
under the capable direction of the
eminent and notoriouus Ford Ains-

studying are getting you down
here is a relief for one and all.
Come on and let your hair down
