SECRETS OF LIFE
IN POLAR CIRCLES
Vllhjalrour Siofansson the noted Arctic
explorer who is to lecture here on the'even-
ig of November 1 upset all the old theo-
ries of the" Arctic during his five years
pent in the Polar circles ending in 1918.
Instead of carrying large supplies of food
he learned to live off the land on native
animals and fish. Instead of carrying fuel
he burned seal blubber. Instead of taking
a regiment of dogs and a long sledge train
he and his party travelled with six dogs
and one sledge .and he brought the dogs
bade "fat as pigs" according to his own
Instead of being covered with snow Mr.
Stefanssen found the Artie hills full of
fertile grass and capable of affording pas-
turage to enormous herds of reindeer the
meat of the future according to Mr. Stef-
anason. In his great lecture "My Five
Years in the Arctic" which is to be given
here Mr. Stefanseon describes the life in
Ike Northern regions as being most fas-
cinating in its wealth of detail as to travel
good seal hunting bear hunting clothing
eWieulty of progress and many other features.
Mr. Stefansson'ss first experience in liv
ing os we country was occaoiuucu uy ne-
cessity owing to the destruction of his ship
Karluk which carried most of his provis-
ions. He believed however that he could
live off the land and this he and his party
proceeded to do. He studied the Eskimo
and learned to build ice bouses as the Es-
kimo builds them. In this way he was
able to undergo the hardships of the
North and made life and travel in the Arctic-
circle ' comparatively simple
"Mr. Cox" asked Professor. t Campbell
"what three words 'ire used most among
college English students?'
"I don't know" said John Cox.
"Correct" replied Prof. Campbell.
Mr. Carawell "How much dp you
barge for a haircut now?"
Barber "FHty cents sir."
Mr. a "And how much for a shave?"
Barber Twenty-five cents' sir."
Mr. CAfWeil then give my head a
God's & grinds slowly but surely.
RAFAELO DIAZ APPEARS
SEVERAL TIMES WITH
NOTED CONCERT ARTISTS
BRONCO MANAGERS HAVE
BEGUN WORK ffl EARNEST
Rafaelo Diaz the eminent young tenor of
the Metropolitan Opera Company who ap-
pears in concert here on October 13 at
Simmons College had the distinction dur
ing the past winter in New York of appear
ing with the famous Schola Cantorum as
soloist three times. Mr. Kurt Schindler
conductor of this chorus had secured a
number of manuscript works of Spanish
composers while on a quest of research in
that country and Mr. Diaz by reason of
fluent command of the Spanish language
and his understanding of that people was
selected as their Interpreter. How well he
fulfilled this difficult mission may be
judged from the following notices in the
New York papers:
"The quaint royal astronomer of 'Le
Cox d' Or" Mr. Diaz was a surprise to
those who only see and hear him in opera.
He is a concert singer of taste and intelli-
gence while the peculiar timber of his
high clear tenor has an unmistakable in-
dividuality. He had to repeat several
of his numbers with Mr. Schindler as a
sympathetic accompanist. The plaintive
humorous and melancholy characteristics
of the folksongs he exposed most artis-
tically. He sings in Spanish as if it were
his native speech though an American
born." N. Y. Evening World April 21
"Rafaelo. Diaz with his beautiful lyric
voice his subtle artistic instinct for Inter-
pretation and his pure diction made his
group of songs entirely delightful." N Y-
Evening Mail April 21 1920.
"Mr. Diaz then sana in excellent style
and character his set of folk pieces."
N. Y. Eieniws Sun. April 21. 1920.
"Rafaelo Diaz the Metropolitan tenor
gave great pleasure through his singing of
folk songs from the Asturias Leon and
Murcia. N. Y. Globe April 21 HJ.
'The solos of Rafaelo Diaz deserve spe-
cial mention because of their tonal splen-
dor their superb diction and their com-
plete appropriation of the spirit of the
old originals. Mr. Diaz was forced to re-
pea most of his numbers." N. Y. Even-
ing Mail March 25 1920.

'Work on the Bronco is well under way
and from all indications the Bronco of '22
will be the beet annual ever published In
Simmons College according to a state-
ment issued by the editorial staff of that
publication. Many of the problems Inci-
dent to publishing the book were disposed
of during the summer and the way has
been cleared to get the important work un-
der way at once.
The quality of the Bronco has rapidly
increased for the last ten years Starting
with an annual that was very small and
only partially representing the student
body the annual has advanced its beauty
and usefulness until last year it was one
of the foremost college pictorial publica-
tions in Texas. Each year sees an advance
in the character of' work put into the pub-
lication. The Bronco is distinctly a student pub-
lication. It is the desire of the Bronco
management that every student will con-
sider it so and will do everything possible
to make it a success. Every student is
proud of his or her college. There is no
better way of telling your friends about
vour school than showing them the publi
cations. The Bronco contains a faithful
record of the activities of the student body
in the form of pictures. All of the college
events arc set forth in pictures together
with social functions and meetings of the
various clubs and societies. Athletics has
a department of its own in which the
pictures of the players of every team are
placed with a record of all the athletic
games and their results.
The Bronco is better than a memory
book because it Is in itself a beautifully
arranged bock the product of a group of
carefully selected students. It is a book
that every student will be proud of in later
years because he himself will be a part
of it. Its pages will be a constant reminder
of the period of his college life. Its pic-
tures will bring back memories long for-
gotten by years of business life.
The office of the Bronco for the year of
'21-'22 will be on the second floor of the
new science buildings across the hall from
the bursars' office.
A definite date has not been set for the
contest to be held in connection with the
Bronco drive. It will likely take place
during the week beginning October 3rd.
You will be interested in the Bronco con-
test ask about it. The name purpose or
kind of contest would not be given out by
the Bronco' management at this writing.
MUSJC LOTSte TO
HAVE RARE TREAT IN
The Senior sweaters are now on hand
at Mingus-Price Co's. and are ready to
be donned by the degree candidates of
the coming year just as soon as the weather
permits Sixty have been received and
are of some class too. The colors are old
gold with purple insignia on the left breast.
The class met late last spring while still
in the junior stage and determined to have
the sweaters ready at the opening of school.
Lynn McAllister was chosen to select and
order the sweaters and have them here
in time for the first cold weather.
In all probability there will be practical-
ly sixty candidates in the class next spring.
Several members of the class who with
uinrlr n ttliriniT tllK IlBSt IllllimCr lack
only one or two credits and will not be in
school this year will return lor tne com-
mencement exercises next spring.
A meeting of the class will be called at
an early da.te to settle some important mat-
ters. Every senior or prospective senior
i surged to be present and help work out
the many problems that have presented
Music lovers have a rare treat In store
at the coming presentation of "The Im-
presario" to be given here on the evening
of November 9. An all-star oast featur-
ing Percy Hemus Ruth Miller Thomas
McGranahan and Hazel Huntington all
well known NeW'York stars I to stage
the production which is given under the
direction of William Wade Hinshaw of
Metropolitan Opera fame.
"The Impresario" is Mosart's matter-
piece a delightful comic opera which
made Its debut in New York a few years
ago when it was first presented by the
Society of American singers. Following
that appearance the New York World com-
mented on the production as follows:
"The real joy of the afternoon was 'The
Impresario""1 by Mozart This comedy
opera was adopted by Henry E. Krehblel
from the libretto made in 1845 by Louis
Schneider. Only four of the numbers
were written by Mozart for the work itself
it being originally a 'play with incidental
music' While following tho main' out-
line of the story Mr. Kriehblel has writ-
ten an original libretto which proved un-
usually witty and finely fitted for the
theatre. The audience was kept in a run-
ning stream of laughter and the sallies
of the dialogue made one wish that our so-
called librettists could have been there to
see and hear how a light opera can be
made both humorous and intelligent.
'"The story tells how Emanuel Schicka-
neder director of the Fralhaus Theatre in
Vienna and Mozart'a librettists is hood-
winked into engaging Demoiselle Uhllch
as a member of his company The latter is
beloved by the directors' nephew Phillip
but the director refuses to have a niece-in-law
in his company. So Demoiselle Uh-
llch pretends to be an Italian singer named
Cavalleri and is engaged in a delightful
scene of comedy with Madam Hoform the
director's prima donna assoluta. Mozart
himself permeates the action more through
his bouyancy of spirit than by the absolute
effect he has upon the plot. The music
shows Mozart at his best. It Is full of
melody fun and gay philosophy and in
it runs the wine and light and love of old

Practical Christianity is to occupy a
more prominent place in the life and think-
ing of Simmons students if the work as
started by Dr. J. P. Boone student secre
tary of the Baptist State Board last year
is carried on with the same vigor and en-
thusiasm as it was started. At a special
meeting of students called by Dr. Boone
It was decided to merge the then existing
Mission Band into the organization of a
Baptist Student Union.
The plea for this organization was that
though the ministerial and missionary stu'
dents had their religious meetings nothing
was being done for the religious life of
the army of young people In college who
are tp be the lay workers of the church.
This "was the UlAotthIlSU..W.

Why are you going to college? is the
question often asked the college student.
The answer naturally is that I may better
fit myself for life or in other words that I
may -do more for self and humanity. But
any thinking person will readily admit that
an individual who reaches even the high-
est degree of efficiency in any line of en
deavor who has reached the top round
ot the ladder of business success and who
is not prepared to die has been but a mis
Now that lawlessness unreason and the
idea that there is not much religion seems
to be running rampant through the land
it challenges the courage of every chris-
tian student to stand out against the wrong
and to defend the right.
The first meeting of the B S. U. will
be 7:30 Wednesday evening Sept. 21 Ac-
cording to John w. Cox; president of the
Union a very interesting program will be
rendtred and every member in school is
invited to be there with all the pep and
enthusiasm you would carry to a football
game and we will make a touch down for
Jesus Christ. The meeting will last only
one hour giving the students plenty ol
time to get back and prepare the next
day lessons. Come and we'll all pull together.

Leo Jan and Mischel Cherniavsky will
appear' on January 14 at the College Audi"
The demand in America for -all forms
of virtuosity Is ever increasing and among
the latest virtuosi -to supply the demand
are Leo' Jan and Mischel Cherniavsky the
extraordinary Russian violinist pianist and
'cellist respectively; three handsome young
brothers who have simply swept every-
thing before thorn in the world of music
We do not imply that the Cherniavskys
as artists comprise an organization su-
perior to those mentioned but what we
can record is the fact tint these young art-
ists have created a more accentuated em
thustasffl in the hearts of their audiences
than anv other trio that has appeared in
America. That three young men should
be capable of aecompllshlng this difficult
tak indicates that there is enormous ce-
lerity of musical development just now
taking place. These young artists are three
of the world's greatest soloists- and the
fact that they are able to blend their virile
individualities into a onene:s when exe-
cuting their trio is indicative of increased
capacity in virtuosity.
As children Leo Jan and Mischel Chir-
nlavoky sot out to conquer the musical
