At this the beginning of a new school year, it is quite appropriate
for the Student liody to pause for a moment to consider the Creed of
Queens-Chicora Girl. This Creed, written several years ago by Carolyn
Reeves, is a well-rounded, livable set of rules explaining what is expected
of a lady, and therefore, of a Queens-Chicora Girl. The C^eed Js an ideal
to strive for, a goal to be attained, not quickly and with a minimum of
effort, but slowly, as character is acquired.
Who of us, having read Gone with
the Wind, have not wished a thou
sand times for a sequel or perhaps
Just another such book that would
hold our interest and prove so in
tensely exciting that every page
seemed more fascinating than the
preceeding one? For those who have
not given up their search for such
a book, we recommend And So—
Victoria by Vaughan Wilkin, a fast
moving drama of English Nobility.
It is a vivid story of court life and
of the skeletons in the closets ol*
Buckingham Palace and well worth
about nine hours reading.
Rose Shanklin, head of the Book
Tea group, displayed And So—Vic
toria, Dale Carnegie’s famous How
to Win Friends and Influence People,
and Marjorie Hillis’ delightful book
Orchids in Your Budget—at the
Spectator Club tea for new girls last
Friday afternoon. These are the first
books the Club has purchased for
the year and they make an unusually
attractive selection. How to Win
Friends and Influence People has
actually changed personalities and
Marjorie Hillis’ Orchids in Your
Budget, coming after Live Alone and
Like It will either change your life
or make you wish you could. All three
of these additions to the Book Tea
group collection are now available
for your reading this winter.
Sue Mauldin has great plans for
her Creative Writing group this year
and these plans include a publication
during the year if enough interest is
shown and we know there will be. A
literary Magazine for Queens-Chicora
would be grand, don’t you think?
And what about the keen interest
shown in organizing the Dramatic
group? This ought to be a live wire
organization because there are sev
eral dramatic students who will add
much to the study and actual pro
duction of plays this year and a great
many have signed up.
At a recent Cabinet Meeting Caro-
Ivn Reynolds was elected to fill the
position of treasurer of S. C. A.,

Vespers on the Sunday before last
His talk was very interesting; and
it was a privilege for Queens to have
him at their Vesper service.
To the Pledges:
A new chapter in your book of
college life has started. You have
been rushed and extended a bid by
a Greek letter sorority. Some of you
have longed for the day to come
when you could sport a pin; some of
you possibly have not even known
about sororities until you came to col
lege. To both groups I direct this
letter. Perhaps your idea of sorority
life, if you had thought about it, has
been completely social—parties, feeds,
bull sessions. There is another side,
a more serious side to the picture.
Sororities do stand for social life,
but they also represent scholarship
and leadership as well. They stress
a well-rounded college curriculum
that will be of lasting value through
out college and life itself.
Up to this point it has been all
fun. Members of the various lodges
have tried to outdo each other in
parties and rush lines. It is to be
hoped that each of you made a
clear-headed decision and are hap
py in your choice. But now the mad
rush is over—things will settle down
and a good part of the glamour will
vanish. You will be put on com
mittees to clean the house; if your
scholarship is not up to par you
will be called down; and if you show
executive ability and willingness to
work, you will, in all probability be
suggested for a campus office.
Do your duty bj" the sorority
house; do your duty by your books;
and, if elected to responsible posi
tions do your duty by your class. If
you are not chosen for an office co
operate with your leaders.' Remember
the old saying, “Give to the world
the best that you have, and the best
will come back to you.’’
Good luck, and may you everyone
be happy in your decision.
All those who attended the music festival will bear witness, with the
editor, to the great enjoyment experienced by the audience in hearing seven
famous artists who for years have worked to attain and maintain the quality
of performance which the}'' presented to us on October 5th. Finished beauty
is the phrase that comes to mind upon recalling it. Our congratulations
to the Goodfellow.s’ Club on sponsoring tlie most important cultural event
during our experience at Queens College.
We are fortunate in being students in a school situated in a city the
size of Charlotte. Here we have opportunities that are priceless: the Mint
Museum, the Charlotte Symphony, the Community Concert. The Mint
Museum has, during the last year, had unusual interest and is now open
again for the winter season. The Community Concert annually presents
artists of natural reputation. Lawrence Tibbctt and Nino Martini have both
been presented here during the last two years, as well as artists of lesser
reputation. 'ITie Charlotte Symphony has given Queens a special rate on
tickets to the five concerts which will be presented this year.
These arc things that Queens girls .should not neglect taking advantage
of. That elusive thing we call culture is partly made up of knowing the
best in art and music. Culture is supposed to be the most desirable product
of a college education. Therefore we should not neglect without thinking
these things that will develop a side of us that will be even more important
to us in later life. We need a well-rounded, varied education—not merely
“book-learning,” and a measure of social experience. Can we not show a
mature discrimination ourselves, and build our own personalities through
learning to appreciate true art and beauty?
The S. C. A. Fall Conference will
be held at Queens very soon, prob-
abl,r early in November. A number
of delegates from Mitchell, Peace,
Flora MacDonald, Presbyterian Juni
or College, and Davidson are ex
pected to attend besides several out
standing church leaders. Meetings of
the Cabinet members and delegates
will be held to discuss S. C. A. prob
lems on each campus.
Concerning future Vesper pro
In general, the Cabinet expects to
have a day student program, a board
ers’ program and two special speak
ers each month. The program plan
ned for October 17 is a student pro
gram, based on the foreign mission
study book, “Glorious Living,” which
is a collection of biographies of wom
en pioneers in mission fields. It is
hoped that Miss Lucile Dubose will
be the Vesper speaker the following
week talking of Foreign Missions.
Next month, the student programs
and the guest speakers will have as
their topic. Home Mission.
Very soon the Discussion Groups
will begin to meet again. With Elean
or Alexander and Carolyn Reynolds
as co-chairman, the informal discus
sions touching students’ problems,
religion, and the students’ attitude
and spirit on the campus should prove
very interesting and helpful.
The Spectator Club opened its
year’s activity with a very attractive,
informal tea in Pi Hall on Friday,
the' eighth of October. The guests
were met at the door by Frances
Gunn, president of the Club. 'Tlie
other officers, Eleanor Alexander,
treasurer, and Rose Shanklin anc
Sue Mauldin, group leaders, talkec
informally with the girls about the
three divisions of the Spectator Club.
Before the guests left, they signed
the register signifying which of the
groups they wished to join.
Ice cream and cake were served
by Brooksie Folger, Ileta Caldwell,
and Nancy Mclver.
The purpose of the Spectator
Club is to promote literary interest
upon the campus. Any student at
Queens may be a member, and she
has the privilege of choosing* the
group in which she is the most inter
ested: the Book-Tea Group, the
Creative Writing Group, or the Dra
From the looks of Sara DuRant’s
study hall cut card last week, we
think that Pi Kappa Phi piit will
soon be back in its old place.

Chicago, Ill. (ACP)—A university
is primarily an idea and the respon
sibility for framing that idea belongs
to the student. Dr. Franklyn Bliss
Snyder, vice president, told 1700
Northw'estern University freshman.
“If your idea of a university pic
tures it as a continuation of high
school, w’here you study ‘lessons’ and
take part in ‘recitation,’ that is what
the university will be to you,” he
“If you think of it as a collection
of classrooms and laboratories where
you spend all of your time and
energy in study, denying to your
selves the opportunities for develop
ing any phase of your personality
except the intellectual, that again is
what your university will be to you.
“If you think of it as a training
ground for athletes and cheer leaders,
a series of. lack-luster days between
contests in the stadium and gym
nasium, that again it will be to you,
and nothing more.
Dr. Snyder continued, “I hope
yours (idea of a univ-ersity) is of a
place of wider opportunities than you
have hither-to enjoyed; of opportuni
ties for work and play, for learning
and questioning, for living with in
teresting people representing many
parts of the world and many atti
tudes toward life . . . for enjoying
starlight and sunshine and the beau
ty of the lake and music and art and
other ‘useless’ things that in the long
run prove most useful of all . . .
for opening windows into your minds,
and for exposing yourself to ideas.”
