Both speakers stressed the urgent need of more spiritual guidance and less waste of people's lives on countless little activities. The program, which commemor ated the granting of the charter to Guilford College in 1 K.'(4 by the North Carolina Legislature, began with a tiflk by l>r. Craig on the subject "Renaissance." I)r. Craig, an eminent speaker, scholar, anil author, is also an authority m Eli zabethan literature. Editor of "The Philological Quarterly" from 1112'.! until I!>2S, he has compiled since 1!I2!> the Renaissance Bibliography annually printed in "Studies in Philology." Emphasizing that education can he atained only by work. Ir. Craig said, "It is folly to think that youth can acquire culture merely l>y being given the opportunity to do so." He urged that "we must have more vigorous, more competent, and more realistic men and women in our faculties." "There is no elnss in American society so slothful, and no class whose energy our country needs s>i iniich, as the college youth of Amer ica," Dr. Craig snii. The definite need for spiritual guidance was out lined in his words. "I helieve our failure as college teachers is due more than anything else to the lack of faith. We neither visualize the possibilities that God has afford ed every living man or Ix-lieve that we ourselves are capable of doing many times better." he added. Dr .Craig, concluded his address by saying: "The world in which we live is a political, social, and com mercial mess, and we must have great, unselfish brains to save our world still greater chaos."

Miss Chancy Horsley, who the Memorial Mall theatregoers of that evening will remember as portray ing the part of Kaina, remarked later that the audience (small though it was) was one irf the most, appreciative that she has played before this season. Such appreciation could only have been possible through the effects and superb characterizations of the Barter east, a group of profession al actors and actress who are now touring the South, but who call Abingdon, Virginia their home. As an indication of their reputation and proficiency it should be remem bered that Gregory Peck, Jeffrey Lynn and Margaret Phillips are but a few who have left the Vir ginia operated theatrical venture for greater heights. Play Professionally Done Trying to single out any particular phase of this production is like try ing to find one had apple in a car- loacl of ripe, red Baldwins. A slowly written first net progresses toward the climatic third net with ail the skill and dexterity 011 the part of the east that is usually associated with the major Broadway produc tions. No novices, these Barter I'layers, hut rather a professional crew whose every motion conveys to the audience a love for their voca tion. The (lashing young Swiss officer. Captain Bluntchli portrayed by Herbert Nelson, aptly managed to untangle many n snnrl in (lie affairs of the Petkoff family while at the same time offering Shaw a medium to express much of his renown Phil osphy. Major Sergius Saranoff. (Tom McPermott) gave an excel lent portrayal of the Russian soldier who came back frowi the front only to encounter unexpected difficulties in his romantic life. In Saranoff was Shaw's outlet for the sharp biting satire that his devotees ex pect of him and in this character they were not disappointed. One Must Lose I.ouka, (.loan DeWeese) who was the sultry, impudent Petkoff servant provided the "other woman" angel, NUMBER 6 Miss Lasley's Office Gives Schedule for Student Registration Due to the unusually large en rollment, Miss Bra Lasley, registrar, has requested that the following schedule regarding registration sec ond semester lie followed. Registration Schedule Students, other than seniors ami those on probation, will register on Wednesday and Thursday of ex amination week in the gym. Faculty advisors will have hours from 9 to 12 and from 1:30 to 3 to assist students with their programs. Fol lowing this, students will go to the office of rhe assistant treasurer for the payment of fees, and should have the amount of the tirst pay ment in hand. Miss Lasley stresses that no student who has not settled his account for tirst semester may register. This includes veterans. All accounts should be settled before January 21. Absences will be count ed from Monday morning, January 27 at 8:30, whether or not the stu dent has registered for the second semester, except for probation stu dents. Their absences will be count ed from Tuesday morning, Jan uary 28. Seniors will register for the sec ond semester according to the schedule posted on the bulletin board in Memorial Hall. Probation students will register in the Dean's office, Monday morning, January 27. Students not enrolled during the tirst semester will register in the Dean's office, January 24. Matriculation Card Needed In order to be admitted to class, each student must show his matri culation card, properly .signed by the assistant treasurer, to the in structor. This is done at the first meeting of each class after the beginning of the semester. Those unable to show their card properly signed will be counted absent from the class. The cooperation of all students is appreciated, that the work may proceed quickly and easily as pos sible. but the question unti lthe climax was Just who would be the. lucky mail, to win her affection. Somehow, as the majority of plays have a habit of doing, everything worked out smoothly and all were happy. All but the servant Nicola, who we must confess, seemed to be the only character left without a love. Major ami Mrs. Petkoff, (Gordon Hummers and Margaret Thomson) provided the remainder of the laughs that resounded in the Hall through out the evening. Try as we can, it is impossible to find some criticism, even though it be mild, for we were so impressed b.v the coorporation of the individual members of the com pany during the afternoon as they set up their own props and scenery, that criticism is nil. Of course we could complain that North Carolina has not taken steps to subsidize :i Theater similar to the Barter Play ers, but then, there are 40 other states who have yet to make the move, so perhaps we have no room for complaint. Let us hope that more such opportunities of seeing equally splendid performances may come our way again. W. L. K.
