Jackson finds himself engaged to three
girls, and his money gone. The
trouble all arises from the fact that
he is wearing the Scarab pin. The
burglar escapes after having been
caught and forced to deliver the
stolen goods. In the end everything
clears up, the Scarab is destroyed,
and Billy is to marry Doris Ruffles di
rectly after Amy Lee and Brighton
Mrs. Dick Watson was especially
good as Aunt Paradise, the colored
cooklady. She was the star of the
occasion, and a storm of applause
greeted her each time she appeared on
the stage. Miss Hilda Matthews as
Miss Longnecker, a public school
teacher, and Mr. Howard Pitt as
Hemachus Spiggott, deserve mention.

ters they represented.

A number of children from the

A graduating recital of exceptional
finish and charm was given in the col
lege auditorium on Friday evening,
April 18, by Miss Nancy Eley Parker,
Miss Parker’s voice was at its best
after months of conscientious, thor
ough, painstaking practice. The deli
cate, plaintive “Bird of the Mount-
tain” by Hubbard was sung with ex
quisite finish. The phrasing was per
fect, and every tone light, clear, and
true. The sympathetic quality in her
voice was soft and appealing in “0
Lovely Night” by Ronald. Not a
tone was blurred. Because Miss Par-,
ier’s voice, lyric in quality, is best
suited to light, dainty airs, she sang
to especial advantage in “The Little
Damozel” by Novello.
She was supported in her recital by
Miss Sarah Hughes White at the
piano and Miss Carolina Lane, violin- ^
ist, both artists in their line. The
piano accompaniment to “Hark, Hark,
the Lark” by Schubert and the violin
obligato to “Bird of the Mountain”
deserve special mention. |

“The Hoodoo”, a comedy in three
acts, by Walter Ben Hare, was pre
sented by the members of the Dra
matic Club assisted by some people in
Murfreesboro, last Thursday evening,
April 15, in the college auditorium.
The play was unusually well rendered
due largely to the direction of Miss
Knott and to the splendid cast of
The play opened with a scene on
the lawn at Mrs. Perrington-Shine’s
country home. Professor Solomon
Spiggot, the cousin of Brighton Early,
who is about to be married to Amy
Lee, presents Mr. Brighton Early with
an Egyptian Scarab as a wedding
present. On account of the myster
ious power of the Scarab, trouble
starts in for Mr. Early. The second
and third acts take place in the li
brary. It was discovered that a bur
glar has entered the house and has
stolen several valuable articles. Billy
On Friday evening, April 11, Miss
Willie Mae Horton, candidate for a
diploma in expression in May, gave
her graduating recital.
Her program included a humorous
reading in negro dialect, “High Cul
ture in Dixie,” a one-act play by Mar-
tvn Johnson dealing with the tradi
tional love affair of Pierrot and Pier
rette; and a short story by O. Henry,
“The Gift of the Magi.” The reading
“Enoch Arden” with musical accom
paniment was the most artistically
rendered number on the program.
Miss Horton through patient work has
mastered the technical difficulties of
reading this long narrative poem with
the music; and the result was that
she gave this great poem with assur
ance, smoothness, and genuine feel
ing. The musical accompaniment by
Richard Strauss, played by Miss
Sarah Hughes White, was unusually
beautiful and suggestive of the mood
and atmosphere of changing dramatic
Miss Ila Leary, soprano, as.sisted
Miss Horton in her recital. Her two
numbers “Pale Moon’ by Logan and
“An Open Secret” by Woodman con
tributed much to the success of the
