They are just beginning to see the fruits of their labor and now their chief —“Will it be a pretty day or wi IS the Queens’ beauties have to carry umbrellas?” This annual event will take place the amphitheater on Friday, m May 5th. The general theme is be ing kept secret, but we do know that about 100 girls are participat ing in the various dances which include as usual the colorful May Pole dance.

This saves time from changing clothes after a gym class. II Social Regulations. A. Rules for dates which apply to all students: 1 All dates must be received and dismissed in Burwell Hall and be paraded in front of all other students so they will not forget what a date is. 2 No student is allowed over seven night dates a week.

Scavenger Hunt Held Tonight For Soldiers Date Bureau On Job For Square Dance The traditional Queens-Davidson Day was observed on Saturday, March 25th, when a hundred boys (75 Air Corp Cadets and 25 Dav idson Students) arrived, via buses, on the Q. C.’s campus. One hun dred Queens girls signed their name to lists on the bulletin board, giving general zed description of them selves; mainly, color of hair and height. The list, on being sent to Davidson, was immediately dis tributed and when the boys ar rived on Saturday and met their dates in Burwell Hall, the couples were evenly matched. Dinner was scheduled for 6:00. Four couples were seated at each table, the four hostesses being responsible for original, individual decorations. At 7:30, everyone adjourned to the auditorium to attend the thorough ly entertaining program of the Faculty Stunt. From the auditor ium, the couples returned to the dining, room where the Freshmen- sponsored square dance got under way. By 12:00, the excitement had ended. The boys returned to their waiting buses, and the girls to their dormitories. Final Results Of Elections Announced On Saturday, April 1, the Board of Trustees held their last meet ing for this school year. The question which was decided upon at this time was the much de bated “should examinations be con tinued at Queens?” Dr. Hunthim V. Blakeful who was representing the students said, “In this time of worry everyone is naturally upset over the develop ments of the war. It is not right to place any more worry and strain on the students through examina tions. Not only will it be a great relief to the students, but if the examinations are discontinued the teachers can make out the grades earlier and enjoy the Spring weather out-of-doors more. An other advantage to take grades coming out early is the fact that the seniors will know if they should send their invitations out or save them for next year.” Dr. Blakeless was applauded heartily at the end of his speech. Mr. Henry Allidaughter, chairman of the board, then made the pro posal that the board vote on the issue. The proposal was seconded and the votes were unanimous in favor of dismissing the examin ation period. Examinations were scheduled to begin on May 25 and continue through June 1. However school will officially close at 12:00 noon on May 25 and commencement will be held May 29.
