Last Friday at the assembly Miss
Ethel Kerr, the Business Manager,
made a plain statement conceaning
the financial situation of the paper.
She showed that, not enoungh sub
scriptions by two thirds thad been
received, and that The Clarion could
not be continued under those condi
tions. Tom Graham then presented
a plan whereby the entire student
body would be formed into clubs by
the dormitories in which they live.
The day students will form another
club. Each of these clubs to have
a leader who will distribute the pa
pers and make collections. This
plan enables the club members to
get the paper for twenty-five cents
a quarter. This plan was they
discussed and on motion was unan
imously adopted by a rising vote.
The following club leaders have

With Miss Charlotte Hatcher in

Clubs are going to take a leading
part in campus activities. Already,
the girls are working on a selection.
Miss Hatcher, our capable leader,
has announced that an operetta and
a concert are to be presented before
Anyone who is interested in join
ing the Glee Clubs may have his

What Is This?
If you do notknow,
you should get out
and look around.
We are glad to present on the
left the print from a wood cut
made by one of our gifted stu-
bents, Mr. Summers Maugans.
Mr. Maugans not only makes cuts
on wood and linoleum, but he is
also an artist in making pen draw
ings. We hope to be able to use
a good deal of Mr. Maugans work
during the winter.
Miss Craig is anxious to have the
class in creative writing publish
some of their productions. The only
way to assure this being done is to
publish a magazine. It has been
proposed that four or five issues of
The Clarion be made magazine num
bers. This will likely be done, but
at present it is not sure. If this is
done the first magazine number will
be published in November. It will
be printed on a better grade paper
the pages being 6X9 inches. Such
an arrangement would cartainly
make The Clarion more attractive
and valuable to all of us. Let us
encourage this movement.
Old Lady—Can’t you cheer your
little brother up and stop his crying?
Small Boy—No, he‘s just had five
bananas, two hot dogs, and seven
ice cream cones.
President Coltrane announced in
Chapel that within a few weeks
Brevard College will present a con
cert featuring Madame Elda Vettori,
famed Metropolitan opera singer.
All students who heard Madame
Vettori last year when she sang
here agree that her marvelous per
formance was one of the most en
joyable events of the year.
The Avon players will present
‘Othello” in the college auditorium
Ion the 29th. This is certainly a
treat that every student should en
joy. The players are brought here
by the cooperation of the College
and the Brevard High School.

[Girls’ Opinion of the
Boys’ Rat Week
Rachel Orr: A little bit of lip.
I stick and a little bit of paint makes
1 a boy that’s ugly look as if he ain’t.
Vivian Moore: I think the fresh
men boys are cute. Why don’t they
wear make-up all the time?
Ida Whisnant: I think it’s being
properly enforced, I heard several
rats confess that they know now
why a girl is always late. It takes a
heap of time to get beautiful.
Ruth Coltrane: Boys, here is a
1 hint to you. All the girls think you
I are handsomer with lots of make-up;
so take my advice and continue your
I facial treatment! Luck to you!
Sara King: If you want to know
how cold it is, just ask a freshman
with pants leg rolled up.
