The large audience was unusually appreciative of the delicate artistry of the four musicians. It is an unusual treat to hear a Beethoven Quartet played by four gentlemen, each one having peculiar talen.ts of a virtuoso, and yet play ing together with perfect ensemble. The Beethoven Quartet in D major was their best offering. For a second group, the Quartet played “Three Idylls” by Frank Bridge, a contemporary British com poser. These reflected the Romantic school of the middle 19th century. Borodin’s “Xocturne” was played as an encore. The Haydn “Serenade” which followed was exquisitely played hy Mr. Gordon with the Pizzicato ac companiment by the other three in struments. From the Eussian School of Music, Mr. Gordon selected the “Valse” by Glazounow who has been called the Brahms of Russian mu.sic. Following the “Valse” was the whimsical “Lonely Shepherd” by Spaeight. Moussongsky w'as one of the outstanding writers of the Im pressionistic school. His “Gossiping and Quarrelling” show'ed his rigor ous humor and delicate colors. The “French Serenade” by Lalo, and Percy Giiainger’s “ir/olly on the Shore ’ ’ were the last encores. The program, as a whole, was perfect in choice of numbers — representing every development of the String Quartet as a form of chamber music —and perfect in ensemble and ar tistry. OUTSTANDING CLASS EDITS SALEilTE Superior Issue Stuns Students The Class of 1937 ,in which there lies much unsung talent, is submit ting to the public a paper which should arouse, if not the admiration, at least the sympathy of the readers. Criticism of the paper will not be misunderstood, but will be accepted in the same spirit as criticism of past attempts has been accepted — with a smile of contempt for your lack of appreciation for the better things in life. And thus it is that the Sophomore Class issues this superb edition with the sincere hope that you may recog nize our literary ability more readily than you received our musical effort! EVENING WATCH SER VICES PROVE SUCCESS Shall They Be Continued? At intervals during the past few months evening watch services have been held at ten o’clock in the T room. Sometimes a selection from Tagore’s “The Gardener,” or “The Prophet,” has been read by a mem ber of the Y Cabinet. Then again the entire time has been devoted to the singing of hymns. Bo these services mean anything to you? To many girls, the sim plicity of the service appeals; to others, the informality; to some, a quiet moment devoted to spiritual thoughts just before going to bed comes as a joy and comfort. The Y is open to any suggestion you would like to make as to the im provement or continuation of these services. PAUL GREEN TO BE IN WINSTON-SALEM CHAPEL NOTES To Speak In Memorial Hall Paul Eliot Green, outstanding au thor and educator, wil give a lecture Thursday night, January 17 in Me morial Hall. His subject will be ‘ ‘ Drama in- the movies. ’ ’ The spon sors of his lecture are the A. A. U. W., The Altrusa Club, The Busi ness and Professional Womens’ Club, and the Younger Business Girls’ Clubs of the Y. W. C. A. The ad mission will be 3oc for students and oOc for adults. Mr. Green was born at Lillington, X. C. in 1894. He was graduated from Good Buies Creek (N. C.) Academy in 1914, and received his A. B. degree at the University of X^orth Carolina in 1921. In 1921-22 he did graduate W'ork at the Uni versity, in 1922-23 he did graduate work at Cornell University of North Carolina. Mr. Green is author of “The Lord’s Will and Other Plays,” “Lonesome Eoad,” “In Abraham’s Bosom,” “The Field of God,” “In the Valley and Other Carolina Plays,’ 'fWide Fields,” “Tread the Green Grass,” “The House of Connelly and Other Plays,” “The Laughing Pioneer,” “The Southern Cross. ’ ’ “In Abraham’s Bosom” was in 1921 awarded the Pulitzer prize for the best American play. Thursday: Dr. Rondthalcr told us this morn ing that being Christian was not an extra activity to be fitted into our spare hours but an activity to be incorporated in our working hours as well. He pointed out that Christ in choosing His disciples had not called men who had much spare time, but men who were busy, such as Peter and Janies and John. In 1887 a papyrus was found in the valley of the Nile with seven sentences sui> posed to be said by Christ. Six of them were known to be in the gos pel of the Sermon on the Mount, but the seventh was new. It referred to finding Christ .in one’s work. Al- thougli it was unfamiliar, the thought was in direct relationship with the choice Christ made in His Disciples. Friday: The entire chapel services was de voted to an eulogy of Mrs. Council who was, until the time of her death, Salem’s oldest living alumna. She was born December 1832 in Sumter, S. C., a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. ■Tefferson Bostwick and at the age of fourteen entered Salem. About three years ago Dr. Eondthalor visited her, and she recalled pictures of Salem as slie had know’n it many years ago. We little realize the great extent of time embodied in one hundred and tw'o years as time past seems short in comparison to time to come. Dr. Eondthaler tried to show us how long she had lived by such illustra tions as these. Wlien Mrs. Council was born, the seventh President of the United States was in office, since then there have been thirty-two. Arkansas was admitted into the Union when she was grown. She was the first woman in N. C. to own a sewing machine. In finishing Dr. Eandthaler read Proverbs 31:10-31, the contents of which give the characteristics of a virtuous woman. Saturday: Dr. Eandthaler talked further (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO) MISS LUCILLE DELANO SPEAKS AT A. iU. W. MEETING HERE HISTORY OF MUSIC IN SALEM SINCE 1765 Notes Benefits of Fellow ship Year On Tuesday evening, January 15, at eight o’clock the regular monthly meeting of the Winstjolli-Salem branch of the American Association of University Women was held in the recreation room of the Louisa Wilson Bitting Building.. Miss Lucille Delano, instructor at Queens College, was the si>eak- er of the evening. Her subject, which is the third in the series, “To day’s Challenge,” was “Today’s Study Abroad.” This was based upon her study and observations dur ing the year she spent in Europe under a fellowship from the A. A. U. W. Mias Delano did research work in Madrid and in the British Museum in London in a search for her dis sertation, “A Study of the Sonnets in Lopes de Vegar’s Plays,” which is part of the work necessary for her Ph. D. degree. The search for those sonnets. Miss Delano writes, ‘ ‘ required leafing many dusty tomes, but finding one interesting sonnet repaid hours of futile labor .... I even found a few sonnets in obscure places, as, for instance, tw’o in a preface to a treatise on medicine, 1595.” In'Madrid she studied at the Cen tro de Estudios Historieos, and she colected valuable material at the Biblioteca National. Of the many intangible benefits of a fellowship year, over and above the definite results of the research Miss Delano writes, “It has taught me more than years of attendance in university classes. I liave known a new world, a very old one, of course, crammed with historical and artistic interest. To have all this, and to have had at the same time satisfaction in the fulfillment of my work is all that I have ever wished and aimed ftor fxaid more tlian I even hoped to find. For the realization of my aspirations I am sincerely grateful to the American Association of University Women.” Has Been a Musical Center Since 1765 REV.

Speaks on “A Definite Pur pose in Life” Our vespers speaker Sunday night was the Reverend Mr. Gordon Spaugh who spoke to us on “ A Defi-1 nite Purpose in Life.” He expressed | the belief that even those of us who I appear most frivolous think of the | serious things of life at times. “It is necessary to have a definite purpose in life, for if don’t know where we are going we are running in circles,” said Eev. Spaugh. Stan ley Jones and Dave Thayer were cited as examples of great men who had a purpose which overcame all obstacles. Eev. Spaugh confessed that it was impossible for him to tell us our purpose in life, but there is a definite plan for each of us if we will only look for it carefully. The purposes which could under lie all professions were discussed. Wealth, pleasure, and fame were shown to be only temporary pur poses. We were convinced that the welfare of others is the under-gird- ing purpose in life. This was the principle of Christ’s teachings and He will bring the desire to help others into our hearts, and lift us up into the kingdom of God. Salem College and Salem Academy have the right to be regarded as a musical centers, for these two insti tutions were founded in an atmos phere of music and their way has been enriched with the joys of music ever since. The pioneers who settled Salem in 17()5 and who founded Salem College seven years later brought with them more musical in.strumenta than weapons, notwithstanding the pio neer conditions under which they were to settle. And appropriately enough they were more than once saved from Indian attack and massa cre by the music which, all unknown to them, was heard by night-lurking savages who assumed that the com munity was on the alert and pre pared against attack. In two fields of music early Salem expressed its deeper feelings, i e., re ligious and classical. Nearly every one of the colonists played upon some instrument and all sang, even including the night watchman 'who greeted each change of the hour with an appointed hymn, sung at the crossing of the streets. Very early in Salem’s history a church organ, one of the very few then known anywhere in North Carolina, was built in the Home Church and another, still in use, was built for the church at Bethania, nine miles north and the last fron tier town westward. Spinets, the early jnanos, began to appear in Salem, then the harp and the usual string and wind instru ments, with orchestra organization by 1775. Sunday afternoons were frequent ly given to orchestral presentations and in this manner many of the classics were rendered in days when wilderness conditions siirrounded Sa lem College. Early compositions especially of a religious nature were frequent and fortunately a large number of such original manuscripts are preserved. Thus when George Washington visit ed the College and the Church in 1791 a part of hi.s entertainment was presented in terms of music and when .Salem learned of Washington’s death a special memorial liturgical service wa.s appointed to which were contributed several original composi tions still fully preserved and re cently rendered in connection with the Washington Bi-centennial in 1932. MEN’S BIBLE CLASS SELECTS BAHNSON HEAD Dr. W. A. Lambeth Addresses Group Election of officers and an address by Dr. W. A. Lambeth, pastor of the Wesley Memorial Methodist Church at High Point, were features of the semi-annual meeting of the Men’s Class of the Home Moravian Sunday School held Thursday night, January 10, at 7:30 o’clock in the Eondthaler Memorial Sunday School Building. The Eev. Gordon Spaugh led in prayer at the opening of the meet ing and several selections were sung by the Men’s Class choir. Dr. Lamebth spoke on “M. R. A.” which he defined as the “Moravian Recovery Act,” and pictured to the membership the opportunities, tO' day, of the Sunday School and Church for service to humanity in (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO)
