Queens’ Girls Hear Miller - Myers Park Charlotte Observer Editor Addresses Sunday School Class of Queens Students “An intimate relationship obtains between education and religion”, said Dr. Julian Miller in addressing the Queens class of Myers Park Presby terian Church. Upon investigation it is easily dis covered that education is not one thing and religion another—they are “twin companions.” The primary de sign of education is to bring the best in humanity out. The primary pur pose of religion is to put the best in. The educational program of our schools today is designed to bring out three main qualities: self-reliance, self-expression upon which modern psychologists lay so much stress, and self-discipline. However, education that does not draw upon those “sterl- qualities of life that are con cerned with religious motives is little better than a “temporary polish.” It succeeds in getting the best in human ity out, but overlooks what must be put in.

BOHUMIR KRA'L AND HIS SYMPHONW ORCHESTRA BAND Queens-Chicora Students to hear Band of Great Kryl, noted Bohemian Virtuoso, Oct. 26 ” - , T 1 3 Viocj ao ti orinfl clif^wmnn wlin Bohumir Kryl, with his Symphony Band comprising an exceptional per sonnel of artists, will present a con cert at Queens-Chicora College on the afternoon of Saturday, October 26. Kryl and his organization, now en tering on the thirty-first consecutive season, have been enthusiastically re ceived by music critics everywhere. During its year of activity Kryl’s band has given over twelve thousand concerts and has traveled over a mil lion miles. The educational value of the concerts is attested by the repeat ed engagements year after year by colleges and universities where the band lias appeared. The schedule has included more than one hundred col leges and universities annually. Of great interest is the colorful career of Bohumir Kryl which began in a little Bohumir village. His first public appearance was made in early youth as a trapeze flyer with a cir cus. Using his violin to pay his way to America, Kryl became a sculptor with the late General Lew Wallace. At this time John Philip Sousa heard him, and he became cornet soloist with the March King’s Band. His rise to international fame as con ductor of his own band followed. The famous bandmaster has been described as a good showman who knows how to blend art and enter tainment, to win the respect of the serious music lover and to amuse the casual listener. With such a recommendation every member of Queens-Chicora campus sliould take advantage of this cultural opportunity which is being sponsored by Alpha Kappa Gamma, national leadership fraternity and Alpha I.ambda Mu, musical fraternity. The tickets may be purchased by faculty members and students for fifty cents and by all others for seventy-five cents.
