LUES Vol No. 3 QUEENS COLLEGE, CHARLOTTE, N. C. October 24, 1941 Farbman Symphonietta Opens Concert Series Audience Calls For Severn! Encores Twelve men and a girl sent the auditorium resounding with applause at the opening of this year’s concert and lecture series. The group com prised the Farbman String Symphoni etta. Miss Edith Schiller, pianist, was the assisting artist. After the concert the members of the symphonietta were surrounded by students to seek autographs, musical knowledge and just general introductions. When asked to name his musicians, Mr. Farbman laughed and said, “You would ask me that!” There began a humorous game in which the whole orchestra joined. It seemed that al most no one knew how to spell the men’s names—including the men themselves. Someone lent a fiddle- case to be used as a writing table, and the resulting names were some thing like this: Harry Rosoff, Myer AdofF, Henry Pekalin, Leopold Teras- pulsky, Rosario Celentaro, and Samuel Hollingsworth. All of the men hailed from New York except three, who came from Boston, Connecticut and Alabama. “Be sure to underline that Alabama,” said the Southern gentle man. “Oh, Boy!” The program for the evening was: Concerto Grosso D Minor Vivaldi Allegro, Intermezzo, Allegro moderato Serenade Tschaikowsky Pezzo in forma di Sonatina, Waltz, Intermezzo, Allegro moderato Intermission Fantasie Impromptu Chopin Ballad in G Minor Chopin Edith Schiller La Oracion del Torror Turina Turkey in the Straw....George Steiner Both Miss Schiller and the Sym phonietta played two encores each. This musical group also opened Davidson’s concert and lecture series with a performance last night. Principal Davidson DR. J. R. CUNNINGHAM Inauguration Figures DR. THEODORE GREENE DR. JOHN ROOD CUNNINGHAM, above left, was inaugurated as Davidson College’s thirteenth president last Saturday, October 18. Dr. Theodore M.

Scholastic Fraternity Taps Six New Members Sigma Mu Selects Three Seniors And Three Juniors At Fall Service Dr. Johnston Speaks About Americanideas With the beginning of a new series of chapel programs on current topics. Dr. Frontis Johnston, of Davidson College was presented Thursday, October 23. Dr. Johnston is well known throughout the state as an authority on politics. He spoke to the student body on “What an Amer ican Ought to Believe.” America is now on the edge of a precipice. There is a great need for something firm to hold to, and De mocracy fills this need. It has rigid basic ideas, but it allows the indi vidual to think as he likes. American democracy was founded to try to solve the problem of liberty to man on the one hand and law and order on the other. England had tried to do this but was unsuccessful. At first the American democracy was too extreme, but now our democracy is a compromise beween liberty and order. Democracy is composed of three es sential parts—economic, political, and spiritual. The economic freedom of the United States came first and afforded equal opportunities for wealth to all. On Wednesday morning, October 22, the local chapter of Sigma Mu, national honorary scholastic fratern ity for women, held its annual fall tapping service during the regular chapel hour. The following girls were tapped: Cora Wayland of Malden, W. Va.; Elizabeth Isaacs, of Birmingham, Alabama; Inez Ful- bright, of Wilmington, N. C.; Ruth Kilgo and Helen Hendley, both of Charlotte, N. C.; and Louise Brumley, of Concord, N. C. The program opened with the sing ing of the first verse of the college hymn, followed by the devotional led by Dr. Hunter B. Blakely, president of the college. Annette McIver ex plained the awards which Sigma Mu gives each spring, and Ida Mae Walkup told the purpose of the or ganization and the qualifications for membership. Following the tapping, the student body joined in singing the last verse of the college hymn.
