Dixie Lyceum Course, 1921-22
The Lyceum course presented here this year under the direction of the Senior Class
was a great success. The unusual choice of numbers made the course delightful. There
were seven numbers and each was different from the others in every way.
The first number, "The Biltmore Society Orchestra," attracted much attention and
a novel program was rendered, which proved very pleasing.
The second number, "Miss Anna Thersa Davault," was an exception to the usual
line of readers. Her program could not have been better and her interpretations of the
different characters showed wonderful ability and talent.
The third number, and the greatest financial success, was the "Harp Singers." This
group consisted of four charming young ladies just out of college, who displayed the:r
unlimited skill in the separate work of each. The Italian Harp was one of the features
and the lovely soprano voices of the young ladies was an added attraction. The pro-
gram varied with short dialogues and popular music and piano solos. This program
was indeed very interesting and enjoyable.
The fourth number was "Frark B. Logan," the celebrated cartoonist. This pro-
gram was interesting from the time Mr. Logan appeared until the curtains were
drawn. The scenes that were hastily drawn were "touched up" here and there with
bits of poetry, "The Ole Swimmin' Hole" was read while the scene was on the canvas.
The delightful and artistic program was enjoyed by all who attended.
The fifth number, which was given at the Crazy Theater, proved to be very up
to date and attractive. The "Windsor Girls" played, sang and gave delightful sketches
of child interpretation. Several other novel features were included.
The sixth number, "Dr. Lincoln McConnel," was enjoyable and educational through-
out the program. His talk, "The Man with the Goods," had a decisive point and moral.
Dr. McConnel delivered his lecture in such a manner that young and old alike appreciated
every word of it.
A few nights after the lecture by Dr. McConnel, Edwin and Mary McConnel (rela-
tives of Dr. McConnel), gave a snappy entertainment. Many people e-ijoyed the pro-
gram. This was a special number given by the Lyceum Association.
The seventh and last number on the course was the "Bell Ringing Quartette." The
program was unique throughout. The old-fashioned Swiss bells were rung by four
exceptional young men who showed much talent in this particular line. A variety of
songs, readings and bell solos were quite entertaining.
The Lyceum course this year has been the best that we could pick and we had plenty
to pick from as we booked the course in February, 1921. We have all enjoyed the
Lyceum course this year but hope that next year's course will be more successful than
The officers for this year's Lyceum Association are:
Frank Payne, President.
Olvia Hazelwood, Secretary and General Manager.
