HER TALK ON PAULAS
EULOGY OF LOVE
It’ you hiid tako)i a I'icle or a walk on tlie
Wake Forest Road Saturday aftpriuion be
tween the hours of five and six o’clock
you would probably have seen the happiest
group of girls tliat you have seen lately,
making' their waj' to Mordecai Spring. Each
had the appearance of being a real sport,
walking briskly and carrying her sofa
Upon our arrival at the Spring each girl
throw aside her pillow and M't'ut in search
of sticks, liuibs and logs for thip bonfire
which was built on the hill top above the
Spring. Wlien enougii of those had been
gathered, Miss Rogers, our adviser, an
nounced that each girl was to broil bacon
strips and “wiennies” for her own supper.
All! But didn’t we feel like saying “‘Well,
aiji’t we got fun?*’ With the bacon and
“wionnies,” rolls, hot colfeo and pickles
were served. Later, everyone joined heart
ily in the toasting of‘marshmaubwa:'
After the delightful stipper we all sat
down around the burning eoals and sang
old and familiar songs, such as “My old
Kentucky Home” and “Love’s old Sweet
At .seven thirty o’clock we departed for
homo everyone singing merrily our dear
“Ahua Mater” and tlianking Miss Rogers
for all she is doing for our Ihiion and par
ticularly for tliis, one nf (hi! ni*est socials
(if the .season.
A rare treat was ours on Saturday morn
ing when Mr. W. T. Bost, wbo throiigli his
]>en bas commanded much attention and ad-
mit'atiou tln-oughout the slate gave us a de
lightful talk. His subject was “Joy,” which,
be said, though it wa.s a.s easy for the poor to
gel as for the I'ich, and for the illiterate as
for tlie literale, only few people ever attain.
Mr. E. L. Middleton, a proiuinent Baptist,
serving as Secretary of the State Siniday
School Board, and a close friend of Meredith,
condiicted our devotional exercises at the
chapel service on Wednesday morning. His
talk was helpful and impressive. One pass
age of scripture which lie read included this:
2 Timolhy, 2:15—“Study to show thyself
approved unto God, a wovkmiin that necdeth
not to be ashamed, vightly dividing the word
of truth”—a ver.se familiar lo all B. Y.
