kings of the Orient. William Hire
and Allen White were readers. The
characters were dressed with cos
tumes resembling those of the Bib
lical days. The costumes, the light
ing of the stage, the choir, the sing
ing of Christmas carols, showed the
Nativity's full purpose. There were
three tableaux: the enunciation of
Jesus; Mary, Joseph, and the batSe
in the manger; and the visit of the
three wise men. The Nativity is an
annual event at Christmas time. It,

The Dramatic Council is proposing
a plan which should raise the stand

The plan is one which has merit as
the sole standard of membership, and
one must pass through a period of
apprenticeship, then eligibility for
election, before the final election to

would warrant some definite recogni

the members of the council.

That Tellest Good Tidings To Zion."
This year a new chorus, "Worthy Is
The Lamb," was added to the ones
that are usually sung.
This all powerful oratorio of Han

NEW BOOK REVIEWED
"Strike Injunctions In The
New South" By Head Of
REVIEWED BY MOSLEY
"Strike Injunctions In the New
South," written by Dr. Duane Mc-!
Cracken, head of the Economics De
partment, is now available for the
public, and a review of the book ap
peared in The Greensboro Daily
News on December 6. Mr. Robert
Moseley, who presented the review,
lauded the work to a high degree and
the following excerpts from his ar
ticle show his regard for the book.
"The author's examination of the
questions involved is detailed and im
partial. The six specific suggestions
h : ch he makes with respect to the
use of the injunction in labor con
troversies have, in one form or an
other, already received the indorse
ment of many leading members of
the judiciary and of the bar."
"Both to the citizen of the state in
terested in the economic and social
aspects of the problem and to the
North Carolina lawyer interested al
so in the purely legal aspect. Dr.
McCracken's work is invaluable. It
does not attempt to deal with the
matter in the same way that Frank
furter and Greene's "The Labor In
junction" does, but supplements that
work and presents the matter as a
North Carolinian problem, with a
North Carolina background, to be
solved wisely, in the spirit of the
court that wrote the opinion in the
Van Pelt case."

a reneral discussion of the Manchur
ian problem. Edward Blair and Har

Massey Tonge Showed Much
Talent In Playing
The piano and voice pupils of Max
Noah and Miss Gail Wilbur gave a
recital December 10, 1931, in Memor
ial Hall. The program was very well
arranged with music of changing
mcods and tempos composed by both
American and Foreign composers.
Miss Mary Margaret Binford in ren
dering "Sonatina" and Miss Ora Mat
lock in rendering "Joy of Youth"
showed great talent for such youthful
pianists. The playing of "March
Grotesque" by Massey Tcnge was
enthusiastically applauded by the au
dience. The most outstanding selec
t-in of the evening was the interpre
tative playing of "Concert In D Min
or" by Miss Josephine Kimrey with
Mr. Noah at the second piano. Sev
eral vocal selections were given by
Edith Trivette, who sang "Life"
by Spross, and "Ho! Mr. Piper" by
Cui-raii; and Jewell Conrad who sang
"Boat Song" by Ware, and "Yester
day and Today" by Spross.
Those who took part in the musical
recital were Misses Mary Margaret
