Miss Brantley was winner in
the CLAHioN feature story contest.
Her entry is here printed.
As the weird, lotiesome sound is echoed
from the educated bell of Brevard College
at I ;30 every night, you are always gropt-
ed with the following vvordp, “Quiet-hour
has started, girls, Let’s get quiet.”
At that very moment the girls seem te
turn Chinese, because they take the op
posite meaning and raise their voices so
loud that “poor me” has to strain its vo
cal cords and chase itself up and down the
stairs to see whence cometh such noises.
Don't look now, but I fear that I’ve been
followed.- - -Yes indeed, Mins Smith and
Mijs Hiyes wish to kiow the answer
to the same question, and so to my rescue
they come. It seems that I've lost my
power or samethii g, or perhaps it’s just
old age, because Miss Smith and Miss
Hayes usually g3t the best results.

At the first descent of quietness I retrace
my step^^ and proceed to study shorthand.
A few seconds pass, and then an unwel-
comod visitor makes her entrance into
my room. ‘‘May I take a bath?” Well to
some people I would gladly give permission
to take a bath, but why on earth do they
come to take a bath at such precious mo
ments when one desires meditation.
Pardon me please, but I think someone
is holding a pep meeting up the hall. Must
I descend the stairs to place several
straight marks beside a number of popular
mimes? I must.
Once again I resume mv position at the
table with the same pag^ of unfamiliar
shorthand .«tarii g me in the face. I grit
my teeth, pull my hair, bite my finger
nails, and then proceed; but suddenly 1
am aroused by the sight of the clock——
ten bells lights must flash, and then
peace. Oh yeah! Did I hear someone say
peace? But they are sweet girls. The Lord
loveth them all—and so do I.
Janitors of the various build
ing on the campus met with Mr.
Campbell last Monday for the
purpose of forming a guild. The
purpose of the organization is to
promote perfection in the type
of work done in keeping the
buildings clean and to influence
the students to take more pride
in keeping the buildings in order.
There was a discussion of the
problems of the janitor and how
they are to be solved. This was
followed by suggestions concern
ing a constitution and selection
of a committee to draw up the
constitution. Ed Swan, Turner
Feezor, James Palmer, and Rus
sell Andrews were placed on the

A very interesting chapel pro
gram was given last Tuesday

A. Kale of Asheville led the devo

Professor’Charles W. Phillips of
the Woman’s College of Greens
boro, N. C.
Professor Phillips gave an in
teresting talk on ‘ ‘The Ability to
Adjust Ourselves to Surrounding
Conditions.” In his talk Mr.
Phillips said that life is like a
square, the sides of which are
spirit, mind, body, and love of
the beautiful. These things, he
said, must be rounded out into
the full life. Mr. Phillips also
gave the four main requ'rements
for the full life. These were,
he said, opportunity to study,
worship, charity, and sarvice.
"Thanksgiving Day, in the
United States, is the last Thurs
day in November. This day is
annually set apart as a day of
thanksgiving for the mercies of
the closing year, by proclamation
of the president and of the gov
ernors of the various states. It is
a day observed with religious
services in the churches, and es
pecially in New England, as an
occasion for family reunion.
Thanksgiving Day originated
in 1621, in New England, when
Governor Bradford invited the
friendly Indians to partake of a

Lincoln issued a proclamation
recommending its national ob
servance, it has been a national
