HOLIDAY SPIRIT INTERFERES WITH PROGRAMS
FHILOMATHEANS AGAIN AROU
After the holiday's dissipation it
is inspiring to see the Phils fall back
into their regular program of work.
Philomatheans always have good
meetings, but the one Friday night
did not come up to the usual high
For some time the Society has
been having programs altogether of
a literary character with no debates.
From now on they are expecting
some good discussions on account of
the incentive offered by the improve
ment prize which is awarded to the

provement in debating.

NEW TALENT DEVELOPED IN
When the Zatasians assembled
Friday evening for the first meeting
of the New Year the fact was felt
without utterance that every one
held a desire to make a good begin
ning, but with so much of the holi
day spirit still existing and with the
short notice that was given it was
very hard for those on the program
to prepare it very well. Neverthe
less the society wishes to commend
them very highly especially as they
were all new girls and on the pro
gram for the first time.
Two former Zatasians were pres
ent, Misses Cathlene Pike and Burtie
Dix, who gave encouraging remarks.
After the critic gave her report
PLATO AND SOCRATES AT THE
The Literary Club held its regular
meeting in East Parlor, Founders,
January 3. The program was given
as follows: "A Study of the Prota
goras, the Socratic doctrine of Vir
tue," by Professor Brinton. This
dialogue belongs to an early period
for it takes a definite stand along
lines contradicted by Plato's later
works. It is more remarkable as a
dramatic piece of literature than for
its philosophical ideas. It is intend
ed to show the loose unscientific
methods of the Sophisto. The Pla
tonic doctrine that "Knowledge is
Virtue" was developed and explain
Socrates—Professor Davis. The
one thing wihich makes us so inter
ested in Socrates is the method and
result of his moral teaching. He
did not care for abstract discussions,
but was interested in questions af
fecting men and society. The club
is indebted to Professor Davis for
an excellent discussion of Socrates.

he stated that every student should
identify himself with a literary soci
ety in order to round out his scholas
tic talents and to realize that perfect
confidence in oneself when address
ing an audience which is fostered by
society work. ,
The following men in the order
named then gave us some encourag
ing remarks: Garner, R. Newlin,
Carroll, E. M'oore, Stuart, Stanley,
Hussey, Fox, A. Newlin, and Kiser.
The president then stated that we
should start the new year right by
buying an interest in our own prop
erty. The necessity had arisen to
raise money to help pay off the in
debtedness of the society. The boys
gave a loyal repsonse to this request
and something over one hundred and
fifty dollars was raised.
A committee, consisting of Garner,
Carroll, and Kiser, was appointed to
submit some revisions of the consti
tution of the society in two weeks.
S. N. White was critic for the even
The new hall is something which
should bring every Clay to a realiza- j
tion of the necessity for more and j
better society work if he intends to j
emulate the careers of the men i
whose pictures adorn the walls. As j
one gazes at them he cannot avoid i
having a feeling of gratitude for the j
great heritage they have left us, a
heritage of a goal towards which we
may advance. The achievements of
the renowned statesman, Alexander
Hamilton, were made possible thru
his ability as a speaker and hiis coun
tenance seems to give an inspiration
to work. The portrait of Dr. Nereus
Mendenhall, who, as principal of
New Garden Boarding School for
many years, laid the foundation for
Guilford College and was one of the
educational leaders of the state, also
adds dignity to the atmosphere of
the room. It is unnecessary to men
tion the achievements of John Mar
shall, Abraham Lincoln and Henry
Clay in order to show that a great
incentive to forensic endeavor sur
rounds the Clays. The founders of
the Henry Clay Literary Society, stu
dents of 'BS and 'B6, also urge us on
towards a goal which, looking down
thru the vista of years to come, they
saw when they organized the society.
Last, but not least, the portrait of
the greatest product of the Society,
Mr. Jpseph M. Dixon, of Montana,
bringis anew to our minds the result
of work in the Henry Clay Literary
