This is the first year that instruction
in this area of music has been offered
on a campus-wide scale, and there
are many problems and details that
are in the process of being worked
out to give to those persons who are
enrolled every opportunity for the
fullest possible development.
Six new pianos have been purchas
ed to give to the students of this col
lege an opportunity to study piano
along with their other academic cour
Thirty-eight students are registered
for the Fall Quarter, several of whom
are on the beginners’ level. Some per
sons who have had previous training
and show potentiality of becoming
pianists of adequate merit are also

Did it ever occur to you just what
some of the girls on the campus do
on weekends? Well, here is an aver
age week-end of Rias Hall Girls.
After the last class on Friday
some of the girls prefer going home
while others find it less expensive,
pleasant and more interesting to re
main on the campus. They usually
settle for a quiet evening with their
friends. At the end of this social hour,
they are found lounging in their
rooms, doing most anything from
cleaning to dancing and playing cards.
Many of the girls intend to sleep
late on Saturday morning, but often
realizing the tasks confronting them,
they cannot rest in peace. So with
fresh appearance they find themselves
going hurridly to breakfast. Later be
gin their Saturday tasks of taking
bedding to the laundry,cleaning rooms,
washing, ironing and preparing for
the dance.
Unable to go to dinner because
their work is not completed, they
sometimes settle for just a “snack”
Ten new teachers added to the
staff have brought to the college
varied experiences which will def
initely enhance the possibilities of
good guidance and instruction. In
teresting remarks have been made by
them in reference to our school.

“My experience as far as the ad
ministration, faculty and students are
concerned has been good. The duties
of a religious adviser present a chal

successfully meet the challenge.”

'from the Pirate’s Den. There is
usually time for pleasure before sup
per is served, and the hours pass so
swiftly that the girls hardly realize
it is time to go to the most exciting
event of the week—the Saturday
night “get-together.”
Most of the girls attend Sunday
morning breakfast because it is served
later than the usual breakfast, and,
too, because it is so long before the
next meal is served. A large number
go to Sunday School on the campus,
while a few attend church services in
the city. They return in time to be
served the best dinner of the week.
Sunday afternoons are quiet with
some relaxing and others studying.
One-hour Vespers are held twice each
month. Upon returning from this
service, girls meet their friends and
stroll about the campus or receive
callers in the reception hall.
An interesting and pleasant week
end is over, and girls settle down to
hard work completing those Monday
morning assignments.

The short while I have been here, I

“The addition of the piano depart
ment to the school curriculum should
prove a tremendous asset. This, plus
the continual improvements of the
general physical plant, should be
quite an inducement for those who
seek higher education in and out of
