EXPRESSION GRASSES ORGANIZED
Saturday morning Miss Davis went to Chapel Hill to
attend the Annual Directors’ Conference of the Caro
lina Dramatics Association, in which she represented
the Junior College branch. Miss Davis says that be
sides having a delightful trip, she found many new
While in Chapel Hill Miss Davis interviewed Pro
fessor Koch, and told him of her new plans for the
Expression classes at Saint Mary’s. She also mentioned
the fact that she was requiring Dramatic Club mem
bers to submit a one-act play for the contest in the
spring. Professor Koch evidently was pleased with her
plan, for twice in the meeting he rose and told the
members of Miss Davis’ activity and what a good idea
he thought it was. “I was never so embarrassed in my
life,” said Miss Davis.
Among the new ideas Miss Davis brought back are
those pertaining to speech and voice training, subjects
ot her expression classes. Her classes this year are
large and meet three times a week. At the beginning
of the week the technicalities and fundamentals of
dramatics are taught. The classes in the latter part
of the week study the philosophy of expression, charac
terization, dialects, and expressive movements. On
Eriday night the classes meet jointly to study stage
production, pantomime, costuming, lighting, make-up,
and the History of Drama.
The classes have already started, and Miss Davis has
plans for her first production.
After two elections, the girls who are to lead the
activities of their respective classes for the coming ses-
Mon were chosen. The Senior Class President, Tudie

The Political Club, with Mr. Guess as adviser, held
its first meeting of the session on Sunday night for the
purpose of organization. The officers are: Mary LeEoy
Stanton, President; Sylvia Cullum, Vice President;
Jean Miller, Secretary; and Betsy Thomas, Treasurer.
It was decided that in the next meeting the situation
in the Far East and happenings in the U. S. Supreme
Court would be discussed.
The next meeting will probably be held October 24,
and if anyone else wishes to join the club, that meeting
will be her last chance.
The Altar Guild this year is made up of thirty-four
seniors, under the leadership of Sallie London Fell, with
Miss Bason and Miss Digges as faculty advisers. The
members are divided into two groups to perform the
duties of the Guild. The first group is in charge of
the daily chapel services; and the second is made up of
five committees to care for the Church fixtures, with
Helen Noell, Agnes Sanford, Jean Miller, Euth Seidler,
and Patsy Jones as chairmen. These divisions will be
changed periodically, giving each girl a chance to learn
more about the services of the Altar Guild.
D. D. C.
Among our most interesting organizations this year
is the “IL D. C.,” which stands for Doctors’ Daughters’
Club. It is a new organization, under the leadership
of Mrs. Naylor, and made up of girls from all classes
whose fathers are M.D.’s. The officers, elected at the
first meeting, are: Louise Wilson, president; Tudie
Neff, vice jiresident; and Sallie MacNider, secretary-
YE ORDE ENGRISHE
’Tis irony! Mutilated pencils, stubby pencil points,
and baskets of waste paper bear witness to the fact that
Seniors are not gifted in the translation of English into
Chaucerian “gab”; and yet the Juniors have proved
themselves ready, willing, and peculiarly able (accord
ing to Miss Lalor) to produce old English “treasures.”
She points with pride to their clever interpretations of:
“curroiit periarticle (current periodical),” “knowmatic
(noiiiadie),” “scull (skull).” Let us hope that the goose
eggs which she saw fit to present to the winners were
not as “olde” as the spelling was.
