"Charm of Spirit" Subject of
Instructive Address by
Girls Practice on Academy Stu-
dents Under Supervision
of Prof. Ball.
Charm of Manner Analyzed Work Similar to Public Schools
Admonition of St. Paul Cited
as Means of Obtaining
The greatest charm of all, that
of Spirit, was the subject of a talk
by Miss .Sarah Walton, librarian, at |
the V. W. C. A. Friday afternoon.
"Charm of manner," said Miss
Walton, "charm of personal appear-
ance, charm of personal possessions,
and charm of speech are all neces-
sary to make what we call a 'charm-
ing- girl,' but these are only the out-
ward expressions of the charm of
Spirit. One may have all the out-
ward appearances of charm but if
the inner source is lacking-, sooner or
later, the real self will shtiw through
the veneer, and the girl will be re-
vealed in her tine character.
"Tine charm is found in beautiful
thoughts, '^s a man thinketh in his
heart, so is he.' We are charming
because we follow the dictates of
love. When our hearts and minds
are tilled with love our language will
be free from the discords of envy,
malice, and falsehood, because it will
be the expression of that 'love that
nnvieth r.ot nor is puffed up,' and
the face of one who possesses this
will be filled with the 'light that
never was on sea or land'."
Miss Walton here gave, as thoughts
tbfct would make this-Spiritual trans-
formation of the face, Saint Paul's
admonition to the I'Hilippians, "What-
soever things are true, whatsoever
things are honest, whatsoever things
are pure, whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are lovely, what-
soever things are of good report, if
there be any virtue, if there be any
praise, think on these things." She
also cited David's prayer, "Let the
words of my mouth and the medita-
tions of my heart be acceptable in
Thy sight, O Lord."
"The fact that people grow to look
like things they think about," con-
tinued Miss Walton, "has been espe-
cially brought out by the great
writers: for example, Shylock and
Antonio in the 'Merchant of Venice,'
Scrooge in the 'Christmas Carol,' and
Uriah lleep in 'David Copperfield.'
Hawthorne has made much use of
this in the characters of Hester
Prynne and Arthujj Dimmesdale in
the 'Scarlet Letter,' and Ernest who
so lovingly contemplated the Great
Stone Face throughout his long and
useful life that his own face took on
its lines of beauty and strength.
"Saint John," continued Miss Wal-
ton, "in one of his epistles says, 'Be-
loved, now are we the sons of God,
and it doth not yet appear what we
shall be, but we know that when He
shall appear, we shall be like Him,
for we. shall see Him as. He is.' And
so," .-he concluded, "if you would

May Attend T. W. C.
Investigations Now Under Way
Concerning Admission of
T. W. C. may be the proud hostess
of two Russian girls \vho want to
come to school in America. One of
these girls, Niena Petroff, Tanna-
jennaga, Habrin, China, sent her pic-
ture to President H. E. Stout, and
although her locks are not shorn,
she. is as attractive looking as any
girl on the campus.
The two young women were very
highly recommended by Bishop H. A.
Hoaz, missionary bishop to China.
President Stout has taken up the
matter with the United States De-
partment of L&bor, petitioning for
the approval of our school for immi-

Address on First Night
Prayer Meetings Held
In All Dormitories
Girls Are Prepared for Revival
by Nightly Prayer
The dormitories are continuing
their prayer meetings this week. The
girls on each floor form a separate
group with one of their number as
leader. The meetings are held from
JO to 10:20 at night . In this way
the services are more personal, and
the girls individually take a part.
Some of those who have led the
prayer services this week arc: Dan,
Gladys Medley, Marion McCaslin,
Minnie Willis, Lucille McCanne, and
Thelma Lee Horger. Ann, Jewel
Lowranee and Willie Fayette Mont-
gomery. Boaz - Benbrook, Mary
Ncel, Octavia Rogers, and Ruth Car-
ney. Mulkey, Gladys Thurston, Ella
Snipes, and Myra Germany.
EVIDENTLY "SEE" THINGS
Who can perceive something where
there is nothing? Well, it is unus-
ually easy to do because the sopho-
more psychology "lab" girls did it
twenty times last week. Did you
ever think there was any similarity
between the following:
t. A woman riding a galloping
horse, a cloud, and children playing?
2. A little dog, person sitting on
a sleigh, and the profile of a face?
3. Spooks in a dark house, a but-
terfly, and an owl ?
4. A billy goat, an antelope, and
a tree ?
5. A woman holding a small child
and the map of Texas?
(i. The sun and a porcupine?
"7. A stocking, an elephant snout,
and a dragon's head?
What wonderful perspective ability
some girls possess. Some of the pic-
tures. that they looked at were only
L-Jets of ink on white cards.
The class consists of: Gladys Rid-
dles, Ruth Carney, Mary Noel, Eliza-
beth Wright, Helen Tidwell, Eliza-
beth Robinson, Mary Lillian Austin,
Willie Mae Gaines, Rose Ellen Wil-
I.ams, Nell Hudson, Verda Ruth Gra-
ham, Pauline Buck, Bornieee Tally,
Margaret Andrews, Madeline Led-
better, Reta O'Bryant, Muriel Greer,

Mass in D.
Dr. Ilounshell Conducts Meeting
"As many as are led by the spirit
of God, these are the sons of God,"
was the text of the Rev. H. G.
j Ilounshell, Nashville, Tenn., at Tex-
! as Woman's College auditorium, Mon-
j day, Dec. 1.
There are two very close relations
between God and man. The first lies
in the fact that we are created in
his likeness. We are all sons of
God, even though we do not realize
or recognize him he is xi father to
all men. Our second relation to God
is established when we are. bom
again, in spirit.
The four blessings resulting from
the- establishment of this spiritual
relationship between God and man
as pointed out by Dr. Ilounshell are,
we are no longer under condemna-
tion, our lives are not only quicken-
ed, but we are lifted froiiv-ttjc old
life to the new, glory is Revealed
in us, and ' W3 are transformed and
conformed into a image of God,
Comments from Berlin newspapers
concerning the performance of Dean
Carl Venth's compositions have
reached Fort Worth. Professor Venth,
who is Dean of Fine Arts of Texas
Woman's College, is now on a leave
Dean Venth is in Vienna where
he will remain until after the pub-
lication of his Mass, and then will
come directly to Fort Worth.
"The Little Lady of Ching-IIsi,"
"Indian Lament," "At the Hardanger
Fjord," and his Mass are all familar
both to students of Texas Woman's
College and the people of Fort
The comments made are as fol-
In the Duelschc Zeitung Oct. 10:
"A Song Cycle and a Sonata for
Piano gave evidence that Venth
knows how to write splendid music.
For his Sonata it will be impossible
to find an interpretation more sym-
pathetic that that given by Mrs.
Dr. Ludwig- in the Berliner \ ols-
zeitung Oct. 8:
"The most effective number was
the Chinese Song Cycle, splendidly
sung by Anna Reichncr-Feiten. Cleste
Chop-Groenevelt, Pudolph Deman and
Karl Dechert gave of their best, and
were entitled to a share of the ova-
tion, given to the composer."
I'rcyie.sso r Adolf Klatto It} the
Berliner "Morgenpost Oct. 8:
"Excellent artists—the gypsy like
violinist, R. Deman, the passionate
singer, A. Reichner-Feisten, the splen-
did pianist, Celeste Chop-Groenevelt,
gave the best of their art to inter-
pret the compositions of Carl Venth
not to forget the splendid accompa-
nist, Mas: Saal, and the cellist, Karl
Dechert. Venth speaks a kind of
musical esperanto, and carries us on
a flying- trip over Canada, China and
Norway through the world. He is

MA TOLD NEEDS OF
C. L A. AT DENTON
TEMPLE, Texas, Nov. 26.—The
future of the College of Industrial
Arts at Denton was discussed in-
formally Wednesday by Mrs. Miriau
A. Ferguson, Governor-elect of Tex-
as, and Dr. Lindsey Blayncy, new
president of the college. The inter-
view was granted at the request of
Dr. Blayncy, who said that his pur-
pose was to form the acquaintance
of the Governor-elect and pay his
respects in a social call.
The sfibject of education was
touched upon only in broad and gen.
eral terms, he said, and .he found
Mrs. Ferguson highly sympathetic
with the cause of education and well
informed as to the accomplishments
of the. College of Industrial Arts and
its,present and future nced^-. lie
macro her acquainted with tlw ideals
he has formed in connection with the
college and was pleased and grati-
fied to find that they seemed to find
favor in her sight.
Dr. Blayncy described his visit of
cne hour as "one of the most pleas-
ant and delightful he had ever spent."
Neither "talked shop" during the in-
terview, it was said, and there was
a mutual exchange of desires to co-
operate in advancing the cause of
education in Texas. Dr. Blayncy was
the guest of the Rotary Club at
luncheon and later motored to Bel-
ton, where he met Dr. J. C. Hardy,
president of Baylor College, and
made a hurried tour of that institu-
tion. Returning to Temple late in
the afternoon, he took a train for
Austin. Mrs. Ferguson departed on
an earlier train for the same place
to witness the Longhorn-Aggic foot-
ball classic and spend Thanksgiving
with her daughter, Mrs. George T.
GIVEN ON FOOD
Dr. Peter L. Lersch Criticises
Patent Medicines and
START DAY WITH STRETCH
Perfect Man Chosen by Bernari'
"Start the day off with a stretch,'1
sr.id Dr. Peter L. Lersch, of the phys-
ical health bureau, New York City,
in his talk to the physical training-
class in the gymnasium at 9 Wednes-
day morning. He spoke on health
and how to attain it. He stressed the
point of diet, what and when to eat.
Dr. Lersch spoke in part as follows:
"When the clock strikes 12 today
in the city, there will bo many peo-
ple who will havo no appetites, and
just because they have no appetite
they will not give the body any food.
Yet some of us eat too much; wc ia«
i'lict food upon the body. Eat slowly
"Young ladies, this is a time when
you are in danger of taking eotd.
Too many cling to that oid>'$ayinc.
'feed a cold and starve a fever'; we
ere trying to convince people today
that that old saying is replaced by
'feed a cold and start a fever!'
"Many mothers think that when ft
child is sick, the little body nee<U
food and she stuffs the child full it
things to eat when perhaps it
shouldn't have had anything at all.
Animals refuse to eat when they aje
sick, you cannot coax them to cat,
they have that intuition, wc bare
that same intuition, but we have in-
telligence along with it.
"I know intelligent girls who cat
their meals just as hurriedly as pos-
sible and then chew gum rapidly for
three hours afterward just bccause
they have read somewhere that gum
is healthy after meals. Let people
chew a little gum but don't chew It
to excess. The result is a parched
mouth and nausea.
"Too many people look for health
vhere it can't be found. We see dif-
ferent patent medicines advertised
with testimonials enclosed, stating
that such and such a medicinc has
saved her life. This class of people
is usually found among poor people
who do it just for the sake of getting
their names in the paper.
"Start the day off with a stretch.
Animals and little babies indulge In
a stretch after each nap, but as wc
grow older we do not take time to
stretch. Instead of taking a glass of
pure water each morning to stimulate
us we take a cup of strong coffee to
give us strength for the day
give us strength for the day.
—it is a necessity. Exercise not to
make bulging muscles but to build
up the tissues of the body and to help
throw off the waste for the body.
Show me a girl who throws off waste
through the kidneys and the lung*
