In the center of each of the twenty-two small tables was burn ing a red candle. On each table Were small red j)ots of white pear blossoms. Tlie tiny white diplomas, Used as place-cards, were wrapped With red ribbon, and ev(;;n the dishes of red and wliite mints aided in car rying out tliis scheme. In the center of the library on a round table was the Senior Class cake, a veritable ^^■ork of art, all w'hite with red trim- iiiings. The cake was raised on a platform above the table and under neath w'as a larger and perhaps more ■niposing imitation cake, all deeo- fated like the real one. On the mir- fowed top of this imitation cake ■Swam toy ducks and geese. Around Hie sides of both w'ere tiny red pen nants with 1921 standing out in wiiite upon them.

There was a mo- a.-.ked the recipient of the lucky ring to stand. Jennings Ross answered to the request; then Hazel Stephen son had to admit that she had found the thimble in her share of the cake. For a nioinent it seemed that the dime was lost, but after a second search, Elizabeth Tyler found that jhc w'as the Senior destined to wealth. After the lucky ones had made themselves know'n, the Seniors, gathered around the piano, sang io their host and hostess; Call you believe that we’re the Senior Class?

And you must confess they’re a socia ble set. PIAN'O RECITAL GIVEN BY WILLIE VALENTINE An interesting piano recital was given in Memorial Hall last Monday evening by Miss Willie Valentine. Her first number, a Bach Prelude and the favorite and ever-delightful Gypsy Rondo by Haydn, showed adequate command of technique and claritj’ of tone and phrasing. A long group, comprising pieces by Sliumann, Chopin, and Godard re vealed a considerable degree of mus ical feeling and power of imagina tion. Tlie Schumann “Fable” and the ])layful “Jugglery,” by Godard, were especially enjoyable. The final number, “The Wanderer” (Schubert-I.iszt) making greater technical ability, was brilliantly played, with organ accompaniment by Dean Shirley, and was greatly enjoyed by the audience. Miss Valentine was assisted by Miss Sara Yost, violinist, whose de lightful ))laying of the Kreisler “I.iebesleid” and “I.iebesfreud” and the difficult “Saltarella” by Vieux- temps evoked warm applause. The artistic accompaniments played by Miss I.ois Straley added much to the pleasure of tlie evening. The graduating programs so far this year have been of unusual inter est, and Miss Duncan is to be con gratulated on the results of her work as a teacher. MEMBERS OF CABINET ■ INVITED TO VESPERS Mary Howard Turlington, Mar garet Smith, Katie Holsliouser, Eva Flowers, Elizabeth Parker, and Lu- cile Reid, of the College Y. W. C. A. Cabinet, met last Sunday afternoon with members of the city Y. W. C. A. Guests from other cities were present, and an interesting program was presented, to which Mary How ard Turlington contributed by lead ing the devotional part. A social half-hour was then most enjoyabh"^ spent. This invitation from the city W. C. A. was an additional evidence of the splendid co-operation which has existed this year between the two branches of this organization, and which shows every evidence of becoming even greater in the future. GLEE CLUB CONCERT GIVEN FRIDAY NIGHT The Salem College Glee Club gave its annual concert on Fridaj' eve ning in Memorial Hall. It was one of the most beautiful concerts ever given at Salem College. The Glee Club was directed by Miss Lucy I.ogan Desha, and much credit is due her for the great success of the entire program. The Glee Club gave three charm ing and deliglitful groups of songs. The selections were characterized b_v their attractiveness and the charming manner in w'hich they were sung. The Glee Club accompani ments, played by Miss Frances Jar- ratt, added much to the beauty of the selections. Miss Sara Yost gave a group of violin solos which captivated the ap preciative audience. The lightness and grace witli which she jilayed the last number. Perpetual Motion, by Bohm. was fascinating. Misses Desha and Duncan, and Messrs. Transou and I.upo gave a group of songs which proved to be very attractive to the audience. The richness and expressiveness with which each member of the quartet sang added much to the selections. Mr. Transou sang in his rich tenor voice, “A Song of Thanksgiving.” The height of the program was reached, however, when Mr. Charles G. Vardell, Jr., assisted by Mr. Kutchinski at the violin, played Sonata in A major, compased by Mr. Vardell. This occasion is the first at which Mr. Vardell’s brilliant composition has been rendered in Winston-Salem, and those fortunate enough to hear the artist were enthu siastic in their praise and applause. His perfect technique, his excep tional power of expression, the ease with which he played, and the un usual beauty of the Sonata held his audience spellbound until the last note was sounded. The entire progam of the eve ning was as follows: a. I ^^^)uld That My Love.... Mendelssohn I). O Wert Thou in the Cauld Blast The Glee Club. Violin Solos: a. Waltz—Op. ()!• No. 1... Chopin I).

CHRIST’S ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM DESCRIBED A Sophomore at the Colorado Ag ricultural College is earning all of his college expenses by making and selling trout flies. He adopted this occupation six years ago and has found it to be remunerative as well as interesting. His market extends through Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Wyoming.—Exchange. Bishop Rondthaler chose as his subject at Y^oung People’s Meeting, “Palms F'or The King.” He began by drawing a vivid mind picture of an Oriental grove of pine trees, shining, tall, and statel}' w’ith a crown of green leaves—a magnificent sight. Never have there been manj"- palms in the highlands of Palestine be cause the climate does not favor them, but around Jericho and Jeru salem the palm groves have flour ished, and Jericho is called the City of Palms. In the Fjast the palm is considered as belonging to the royal and majestic and from that idea has come the expression “palms for the king.” Any royal procession has always been denoted by decorating witli and waving the palm. This in troduction leads up to the story of Jesus and His disciples entering the Holy City. It was after Jesus and His dis ciples had spent some time at the home of Mar}’ and Martha that they started, on foot, to Jerusalem. They followed the Jericho road to the top of a steep hill, then descended on the route to the city. On the way they came to a village and Jesus called two of His disciples aside and told them to go into the village and bring a donkey and colt that they would find tied in a yard. When the disciples returned Jesus, with a serious but radiant face, mounted the colt and the procession moved on its way. By that time a growing erow'd was following. •Meanw'hile the people in Jerusa lem heard that Jesus was coming— the great Jesus who had wrought so many mircales, who had made the blind to see, and the deaf to hear, and who only a few days before had raised Lazarus from the dead. It was festival time in the city and a great crowd assembled to go to the liillside and meet Him. As they ran along thej^ sang, called the name of the Lord and waved great palm branches. The crow'd became more e.\cited and appraising as they dis cussed the miracles they had seen Him perform and talked of the won derful things He had done. Jesus rode placidly along and smiled as He thought of the hour of triumph. Still there were some people there in the crow'd who were not touched. They were the Pharisees, leaders in the old Jewish church, who resented tlic idea of Jesus receiving all the honor when they were selfish enough to want it for themselves. •Just around the bend in the road Jerusalem came into view—a vision of splendor, with great castles, tem ples, and palaces—Herod’s palace among them. A city of splendor but a city of wickedness also. Jesus halted and as He looked on the great city He tliought of its future—the wickedness, wars, starvation, that w'ould come over it because the peo ple w’ould not receive Him as the King of Kings. At the terrible thoughts Jesus burst into sobs. Then the procession moved on again and entered the city singing, “Palms For The King.” Today there are still palms for Jesus. As one travels along the road of life doing and saying things that are hard, but right, he is encouraged to keep on by knowing that he is gathering palms for the King. ORCHESTRA CONCERT NEXT MONDAY NIGHT In announcing the sixth annual concert of the Salem College Or chestra, it is interesting to review briefly the life history of this col lege organization, which has played an important part in all phases of college life. The Orchestra was organized in October, 1918, under the direction of Miss Susan Webb, head of the Violin Department, and gave its first public concert on May 12, 1919. It began its work with a membership of twelve and during the past five years this membership has increased to about thirty. In 1919 the follow ing took part in the concert: First violins — Paulina Taylor, Gladys Sills, Agnes Pfohl, Esther Efird, Mary Pfohl, Archibald Spaugh, Nancy Hankins, Elizabeth Parker; second violins—Elsie Scoggins, Miss Kapp, Mary Beck, Margaret Rod- well, Elizabeth Spaugh, Janet Spaugh; viola—Miss Mildred de Barrett, Robert Ormsby; violincello and clarinet—Joseph Pfohl; horn— Ethelbert Holland; first cornet— F'rcderick Spaugh; second cornet— Henry Pfohl; tympani—Miss Mary Cash; bass drum—Miss Jackson; triangle—Bessie Pfohl; tambourine —Mary Parrish; piano—Elizabeth Gillespie, Hennie Malone. Direc tor, Miss Webb. It is interesting to note among the above names those of fortaer students who are still well known at Salem, and of several faculty who have aided greatly in the Or chestra’s success. Of this number only five are still members of the Orchestra and will take part on Monday night in the sixth concert. Out of the Orchestra organization has come the Chapel Group, the small orchestra for various athletic occasion dinners, the Movie OrcheS' tra, the Commencement Sunday Or chestra, and the Younger Pupils’ Orchestra, and branching out into the outer world, the small group who last summer played at a sum mer hotel. The Orchestra has af forded a field of training and serv ice not only in group playing, but in leadershij), as several of our mem bers have been successful in con ducting small orchestras for special college occasions, social and reli gious. Tiie program for this year’s con cert is as follows: March of the Dwarfs Grieg Waltz, “II Bacio” Arditi Love Song (from A Day in Venice Nevin Gondoliers Nevin Trumpet Solo, Mr. Henry Pfohl. Mazurka .
