And to the "dump" are coming.
)' : Rachael', we fear that you . will
not understand us, but: we must
i tell you something which perhaps
you do not know. Perhaps you
] do not know that in every young
'; boys heart there is a picture of
spme beautiful, sweet, moral vir-
gin, who is to him the only ideal
person living. She is to him a
shining star, his only light when
' crossing those . dark and dismal'
l , valleys of life, and thoughts of
her are as a cable strong when
out. on; the,,, rugged mountains of
leiai^aton. And in our hearts
there is ifonei except the . picture;
'■ of your fair face, and oi your
fair face it will ever be.
'^Yqu aee,.you wer^ put,jtier^,fo.r
: ^-'liBlpose. You aye the light oi
the world if you only smile, and
the ruleir if modest and true. For
' the good of Tarleton, and the rest
of the Universe that revolves
about it, please do not suppress
another tender smile. We need
< .. • them." ' We may not be in the
proper moo^l to give measure for
^ measure (some of us are likewise
young, "unmiskisticated," and a
. long way from home) just at that
moment but the next time we
meet, you will be repaid tenfold.
More than that the memories of
your smiling faces will play like
the lights of the aurora* borealis
across our minds apd-pleasantly
light the darkened heavenly dome
. when we are blind with age.
Rachels, if there is anything we
want you to have, it is mep, real
Tarleton men; and as, for our be-
, ing afraid to come to the "dump"
ai|:erv:ypu, such 'cowardice is not
us. There is not .a-'jungle one

deltghtf u lly entertained at -the- col-
lege club rooms on last Wednesday
by -Mi-wis Mahxft, Cough; Lewis
and Fellman. The . guests upon
arriving were greeted j by Miss
Lewis, who pinned on each a tiny
shamrock "to keep, the spirit" of
St. -Patrick's Day. When roll call
had been answered to with Irish
jokes, Miss Cough told t,he story
of the life of St. Patrick. Miss
Lewis discussed the superstitition
of the Irish, and Miss Mahan read
Irish poems illustrating these su-
perstitions. Then, each member
of the club was' asked, to draw a
map of Ireland, locating the-most
important towns. The prize for
the best drawing was a large
Irish potato. This was awarded
to Mrs. Lily Pearl Chamberlin.

The, St. Louis Symphony Orches-
tra and the Devereux players, both
sche'duled to appear in Stephen-
ville the latter part ot' this month
are two major attractions that

them , into their homes as guests

Music is of all Arts the-, most
universal, and the most appeal-
ing, arid yet paradoxically enough
the one in which systematic edu-
cation is most needed.—Funda-
mentally, music is . founded on
mel'ody, and yet it is not. merely
a concourse of sweet sounds. Also,,
much that is real, melody is not
always apparent and appreciated^
on first hearing—;a genuine ap-
preciation and understanding of
music is the result of many gear-
ings, rather more than even pf
technical knowledge and the real
test of the value of music is the
impression, created in the hear-
ers on much familiarity. The pas-
sing "tune" catchy air that are
so talking at first soon become
wearisome by mere iteration,
while the deeper compositions
g}-gw , steadily in favor by con-
stant rendition. The music that
gives the greatest pleasure in.
the long ru n is that in which
rnelo.dy and harmony are merely
thV vehicles of expression of all
the great emotions of.human na-
ture—not only" does music sound
the gamut of human feeling, ;butf
it further parries us out. into
the region of that„world of thou-
ght and feeling which defies any
concrete or defined expression,
and charms us by its elusive, krig-
The coming' of the St. Louis
Symphony Orchestra will give us
an opportunity to hear an ade-
quate interpretation of the v/orks
of the great composers, arid with
each succeeding, concert and1 reaf
music lovers will find that their
appetite for good music will grow
by what it feeds upon, and that
having once attained the heights
of symphonic apprnciation. that
we will never be content save
in dwelling there.
J. T. ACTORS CLUB MEETS
All you Sophomores who did not
attend the Soph party which was
held last Thursday night ?.% the
Conservatory do not know'what a
good time you missed. Had you
been there and enjoyed those good
times I am sure you would not
^wait to be begged to come to the
next party but would be there
early and avoid the rush.
■The night was rather bad and [.Oliver
windy but still there was quite a
lively little bunch there. About
seven or eight o'clock the crowd
began to gather and soon every-,
body was having a good time. Af-
ter the fun died down somewhat
we found that the entertainments
committee had a lot of delicious
refreshments waiting for us. We
were soon all busy enjoying punch
dbughhuts and candy arid the
time flew by until before we hardi-
ly knew, it was ten o'clock and
everybody began to make prepar-
ations to go home. Onr lap' soon
^ended and we wkere rushed off
home ont in tbef least sorry that
we had. went to the pary.
"The J. T. Actors' Club met last
Friday evening in the auditoriitm.
The Vice president, Mr. Gil breath,
took the chair in the absence of
Mr. Belcher, the president. Many
of our members were away at
Grubbs in the Interest of Tarle-
ton basketball but nevertheless
we had a fine attendance. The
first thing on the program was
three of Riley's delightful read-
ings, given by Miss Clara Sue
Williamson. These were "A Song,"
"Nine Little-G.obblins," and "Out
to Old-Aunt fiary's." Everyone,
liked these readings. They were so
light and joyous. Next on the
program was a talk by Miss Aubry
Smith on "The Carolina. Players."
We were all interested in knowing
about these players, their work
and development. Next a group
of the J. T. Actor' presented "The
Cannibal Isles," a playlet., The
stage was arrayed in its wildest
costume.!. It may sound; funny but'
Miss Louise Todd and Miss Es-
telle Gibbs were the footlights,
Miss Loden and Miss Ruth Land
the curtains, and Miss Merle Pur-
vis and Miss Elizabeth Hawkins
the scenery. After these liad
taken their respective places, the
royal family came in one by one
with' much pomp and ceremony
and -introduced themselves. Mr.
John Lee was king, Miss Virtie
Allard, queen; Miss Annie Clare
princess, and Mr. Dale
was the prince. They were all
dressed like true cannibals. Mr.
Tom Menefee was her majesty,
the queen's faithful attendant.
This play was really a tragedy,
for they all were killed in the
end, but the audience did not
se6m to realize this for they
laughed through, it all..
^Don't forget the St. Louis. Oiv
chestra. Make reservations now.'
/Only JLOO for either concert.

night by Devereux Players. Seats
