This is a picture of tie old Annex, girls’ dormiti ry, that horned quite
a number of years ago.
Yes, it seems to have been quite a place, but it was probably
rather inconvenient compared with the monern girls’ dormitory,
Vaura Kuykendall Hall, now on the campus. Just think, girls, it the
annex had not burned you might still he living in it!
Seeing this building, one is reminded of the stories heard
from those people who were here when the Annex burned. One in
particular seemed very amusing, but probably not so to the co-ed'
involved. The only bhing she took with her when she left the burning
building was her new hat.

in front of the library, in case you have never noticed. The corner-
stone and a picture is all that is left of the old Annex, together with
memories shared by those who remember. _

Miss Nettie Ruth Bracks will
ho presented in her senior recital
on Friday, May 7, at 8:00 p. m.
in the main auditorium.
For the first part of her pro-
gram, Miss Brucks will present
“Suite in G Minor” by Handel.
The four parts are “Allemande”,
“Menuet”, “Sarabande”, and “Pas-
accaille”. This suite was written
for the harpsichord and trans-
cribed for piano by the American
composer, Arthur Whitting.
Second on Miss Brack's pro-
gram is “Phantasia Op. 17” by
Schumann, composed of “Allegro”,
“Maestos” and “Lento”. This is
a beautiful example of a combi-
nation of passionate emotion and
calm serenity. The Schumann me-
lody is, as usual, romantic and
Miss Brucks will play two of
Chopin’s compositions, “Etude
Op. 10 No. 2” and “Etude Op. 10
No. 1”. The Etudes were written
by Chopin as technical studies,
but they have become famous as
Miss Brucks will conclude her
program with Dehussy’s “Gardens
in bhe Rain”, Rachmaniniff’s
“Prelude Op. 23” and “The Jug-
gler” by Toch. The Debussy “Gar-
dens in the Rain” is very impre-
sionistic and exemplifies clearly
the composer’s style. The “Pre-
lude” shows the orchestral inter-
est of Rachmaninoff, and the de-
licate melodies are very sweet.
“The Juggler”, by the contem-
porary, Ernest Toch, written in
modern style, is filled with inter-
est and surprises.________
The ushers for Miss Bracks’ re-
cital will be Miss Barbara Leon
and Miss Elmina Bell.

South western’s Bindery Occupies
Part 01 New Publications Building
By Victor IJil Uttar
Southwestern Universi'y has
iis own bindery, which is some-
hung that a lot of students here
probably did not know. IT is locat-
ed in one of the ha'k rooms of
Tie new building directly behind
I he Administration Building, and
it is being operated by Mrs. F. E.
Gaupp, who says, “I’ve been, here
a year and a half, and during that
time I’ve done tv lot of hard work”.
To illustrate bhe fact that it is
hard work, here are some of the
facts and figures.
The bindery binds all bhe maga-
zines for the library and repairs
and rebinds all the books that
need it. During this one year and
a half, Mrs. Gaupp has bound over
1100 magazines and over 280 new
books (which, by bin* way, is a
painstaking process), and made
over 1050 repairs.
Years ago, Mrs. Gaupp says,
when the bindery was still in the
Administration Building, the op-
erators had a lot of trouble with
rats. It seems that the pesky crea-
tures had developed a great, lik-
ing for the glue or the cloth, and
consequently chewed the backs
out of a lot of the hooks that were
around—their insides literally be-
ing full of outsides.
The new binderyv has no such
problem now, hut is running
smoothly under the supervision of
