Luck On Your Vacation 1 VOLUME XVIII THE NATIVITY PAGEANT PRESENTED MEM. HALL ON TUESDAY EVENING Annual Affair Sponsored By The "Y" Organizations At Guilford CHOIR SINGS CAROLS The Nativity was given at eight o'clock on Tuesday night, December the fifteenth. Dorothy Wolff played the part of Mary, and Matthew Brid get' of Joseph. Ivan Thompson, Carl Jones, David Parsons, Curtis Swaim, and Harry Wellons were shepards. Frances Carter, Julia Plummer, Rose Askew, Martha Lane, and Glynn Bane was the band of angels. Wil bert Braxton, Harold White, and Lin wood Beamon were the three wise 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, like the Messiah, has become a tra ditional Christmas custom at Guil ford. Dramatic Council Plans New System Periods Of Apprenticeship And Eligibility Precede Real Membership MEMBERS TO HAVE KEYS The Dramatic Council is proposing a plan which should raise the stand ard of council membership to. a sup er-extra-curricula activity, rather than "just belonging" and having to set up scenery and dash around for knick-knacks. 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 Council takes place. This policy would warrant some definite recogni tion of achievement when the indi vidual has been received in the holy circle, so keys would be awarded to the members of the council. Participation in producing plays here is an art which requires steady work, consistent planning, and try ing to do big things with limited re sources, so this new idea, if develop ed, will not only increase enthusiasm within the Council, but will show an improvement in the value of the plays also.

The arrangement of the dining room car ried out the football theme. Under the direction of toastmaster Shepard or referee (as he preferred to be called), the program was car ried out amid roars of laughter and despite the continual round of wit between the Coach and Referee Shep ard, no blows were struck and the evening passed on peacefully. First, the three men who are finishing this year were called on to say a few words. Professor Newlin, a former Guil ford football captain spoke. He intro duced Mr. H. Sinclair Williams, Sr., a member of Guilford's first team. Mr. Williams told a few of the ex periences of Guilford's pioneer team.

I The group consisted of "In Josephs Lovely Garden," "Alleliua Christ Is Risen," "Song of Mary," and "God is ! a Spirit." All the numbers were re ceived with a great deal of apprecia tion.

"Worthy Is the Lamb" was the new chorus added to the "Mes siah" given at Guilford College on Sunday evening. Th s program was broadcast from Greensboro. t/* T H E *\j GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C.,DECEMBER 16, 1931 beautiful solos and such well-known choruses as "And The Glory Of The Lord," "Glory To God," and "O Thou 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 del's, written in such a short time, has been presented at Guilford Col lege for five years, and it is the hope of everyone that this presentation will bcome a traditional thing. With the audience standing, "The Messiah" ended with the beautiful Hallelujah Chorus. This idea of stand ing during this last chorus is a cus tom that has been handed down [ through the years. OR. OUANE M'CRACKEN'S NEW BOOK REVIEWED "Strike Injunctions In The New South" By Head Of Economics Dept 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." Int. Relation Club Hold Meeting The International Relations Club met on Friday, December the fourth, and on Tuesday, December the eighth. On December the fourth Mr. A. I. Newlin was the principal speak er. He spoke on the need of such an organization at Guilford and on the general subject of International Peace. Miss Ricks offered some sug gestions as to how the club could be made interesting. The second meet ing was concerned with a debate and a reneral discussion of the Manchur ian problem. Edward Blair and Har r.'s Moore informally debated the que t on. After the debating there was a general discussion of the ques tion. W. J. Fong, native of China, Mr. A. I. Newlin, and Plin Mears were the leaders in this discussion. COACH TO MARRY Head-Coach John P. Anderson will leave within a few days for Conway, Arkansas.

FURNAS, DIRECTOR The Senior class is going to co operate with the Dramatic Council in staging the Spring play, February 20. The play will be repeated in May as the Senior Class play. The play that has been chosen is "The Betrathel" by Maurice Maet erlinck, a Belgian writer who writes in French. The play is a sequel to the well known play "The Blue Bird." "The Betrothel" is a fantasy cen tered around search of a young boy for the girl who is to become his wife. First he goes to the land of his Ancestors, but his search there is futile. He then goes to the Land of the Unborn Children. He is guided by a fairy, and directed by Light. The search ends in the choice of a Veiled Figure by one of the tiny boy chil dren in this land. The fantastic beau ty marks the plot throughout the play. The cast requires about twenty characters, including young girls, middle age people, and older people. Piano-Voice Pupils Appear In Recital Massey Tonge Showed Much Talent In Playing "March Grotesque" 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 Binford, Ora Cornelia Matlock, Nell Ellington, Edith Trivette, Flora Bum garner, Jewell Conrad, Marguerite Slate, Josephine Kimrey, and Messrs. Marvin Lindley, Jesse Bowen, and ! Massey Tonge. also showed the heroic sacrifice of some of the boys, for it included I socks and neckties, which must have | given the owner a heartache to dis i card. Playing a fortune teller's role, | Miss Gilbert told the future of many people whose curiosity would not al j low them to pass by the chance of knowing their future mates, troubles, and travels. Refreshments, which I were served at tiny tables proved the : best scheme of money-making. The | most attractive part of the menu was the price of the delicacies, which ev en one poverty stricken could afford. Near the hotel was a candy shop, I which sold chocolate fudge to the 1 starving pedestrians.
