Are You Sensible?
A sensible girl is not so sensible as
she looks because a sensible girl has
more sense than to look sensible.

Personality is that desirable quality which constitutes distinction in the
individual. Men and women in all walks of life realize its value to their
respective positions, yet only a few of them ever really attain the self-
assurance of possessing it. Numerous psychologists of note, as well as
fakers who know absolutely nothing about the matter, have taken upon
themselves the task of writing books in which they disclose most con
fidentially to the reader the only sure ways of developing the elusive trait.
These books have been studied diligently by hopeful aspirants, and if any
remarkable effects have resulted, they have not been brought to attention.
College life is surely the real beginning to a young person’s individuality.
It has so many important phases which tend to prepare the student for
future relationsliips with his fellowman. Co-operation with faculty members,
participation in extra-curricular activities, and constant companionship
with the other students—these privileges must undoubtedly give as firm
a background for personality development as is obtainable from any book
of psychological theories.
The girls of Queens-Chicora have every opportunity of becoming to
morrow’s leaders in business and in society. Cultural refinement and per
sonal attractiveness arc essential to the woman who wishes to succeed. May
we use our opportunities to the best advantage.
OUR CHAPEL MUSIC
We had a singing lesson in chapel a few weeks ago. Have you noticed
an improvement in the quality of the music? Surely you must have. That
we have been sadly lacking in our enthusiasm when we sing hymns has been
most evident to everyone—even to us who sing. That we have no deficiency
in our leadership is another outstanding fact. That we can do better when
we try we had only to learn for ourselves.
And then again ^e practiced our school songs during a chapel half-hour.
If we are really honest witli ourselves we will admit that we can improve
there too. We all love our school and there is no better way of honoring
her than to sing her praises abroad—and at home. As liigh school students
we probably yelled our throats sore at the suggestion of a song—doing
our utmost to make these songs the loudest, most sincere songs we had
ever sung. As college students, are our cloaks of dignity so heavy that we
cannot raise our voices? Our songs may not require the momentum those
high school songs required, but to be the best they require tlie same sincerity,
the same loyalty, the same desire to do our part in the singing. No sitting
down with the declaration that “I can’t sing. My trial won’t be missed,”
but a glad-hearted effort to make the singing as full of feeling as the words
and music we sing.
Me love has flew.
Him done me dirt.

Lest they be doed

The Creative Writing Group met
at the Alpha Gam house last Wednes
day. June Escott read an original
essay “Why I Came to College” and
an informal criticism followed since
there had been no definite program
planned. It was suggested that guest
speakers be invited to talk on style
and content of writing as frequent
program material, and prizes given
at the end of the year for the best

Down at the Hut last Friday, the
Book Tea held a delightfully in
formal meeting. Miss Harrell talked
on Louis Bromfield and an informal
discussion of books was enjoyed by
the entire group. Rose Shanklin
gave an amusing gift of Miss Har

and Nancy Mclver read a delight
ful take of on “How to Win Friends
and Influence People.”
All three of these groups seem
to be starting off with a new and
active enthusiasm for the year, and
we’re expecting great things of them.

A rare treat is in store for Queens
students! Dr. Sam Glasgow of AU

the S. C. A. invitation to conduct a
Fall conference here on December
second and third. Dr. Glasgow will
lead discussions on campus problems
and will conduct several inspirational
meetings. Those of us who remem-

“An apple a day keeps the doctor
away.” That’s just to remind you
that you can get fruit at the Y. store.
And sometimes a banana, or a buneb
of grapes or something like that
goes a long way toward reviving a
palate jaded by too many nutty
Hersbies. Try it sometime!
And while we talk of the Y. store,
please, please let’s stop the pushing
we have down there at times. Re
member the girls who work there are
only human and can’t wait on more
than one at a time. And please don’t
ask Cabinet members to open tbe
store for you at other than the reg
ular times. It’s really against the
rules, though some are very good
natured about it.
The fun that is Fall! The snap in
the air these days seems to put more
snap in the clothes, or had you
noticed? Mary Currie sports an oh,
so chic chapeau—a gorgeous vivid
blue velour, and nothing is smarter.
Gay color is the thing for football
games, you know. Which reminds
me, Davidson’s stadium for the home
coming game was simply overflowing
with Queens lassies. Nancy Hovis
and Betty Shull were two of the
sponsors. Nancy had on a smooth
ooking leopard coat with brown ac
cessories, and we spotted her at the
riday night dance in a beautiful
ice blue satin formal with orchids
dripping from her shoulder. Ho-hum,
ain’t it wonderful? Betty wore a
irecious black and carmen red
suit with a black fur collar
framing her face. It was ador
able and looked just exactly right
for Betty. Among others from our
emale Institute were Margaret Bing-
lam, Dell Sutherland, Marilyn Brit
tain, Barbara Davis, who also spon
sored for the dances; Grace Clark,
Evelyn McCrackin, Nell Sadler, Ann
^urnell, and so on and on into the
afternoon. Home-comings are so
much fun. Mental note for medita-
1;ion: why doesn’t Queens have one

Alumnae and decorations. Which
again reminds me that Betty Lou
Thompson who sophomore classed it
ast year, was married two weeks ago
to Sam Love. Grace Clark and
Susan Harrill, another alumna, were
jridesmaids, and Eleanor Alexander
sang for the wedding. Oh dear, wed
dings are so sweet, and veils are just
about the most glamorous things that
lave yet been invented.
Saw another alumna from two years
back in Gastonia, the other night, Jo
Long, looking slim and lovely as ever
in an electric blue satin dinner gown.

Personal observations from me to
you: The number of Pi Kappa Phi

Caddie Willis will have played the
lead in “Night Must Fall” by the
time you get this, and we know she
will give a brilliant performance.
We’d venture a bet that Teeny (my-
heart-ever-faithful) Lafferty will be
front rowing it, too! That is one of
the most attractive twosomes we
know, don’t you agree?
While on the subject of old faith
