Page Six STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE NEWS LETTER October, 1953 MR. ATTRUS C. FLEMING PIANO COURSE ADDED TO CURRICULUM 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 ses. 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 listed. Practice in improvisations and key board is to be intergrated into the piano program to aid the future teach ers in meeting the challenge of music in their classroom work.

A WEEKEND WITH BIAS HALL GIRLS 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” THE NEW TEACHERS SPEAK 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. Reverend James F. Hanks —■ A.R.—Sociology, Va. Union University R. D.—School of Religion, Virginia Union University. Further Study,Hebrew Union College Cincinnati, Ohio. “My experience as far as the ad ministration, faculty and students are concerned has been good.

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. —Martha Coward Further Study at Columbia University ‘In the capacity of Dean of Wom en, I find the school quite pleasant. The short while I have been here, I have been deeply impressed by the general decorum of the young ladies of this institution. I welcome all op portunities to be of service in any way possible to the school family.” Miss Edythe Scott — B. S.—Spellman College M, S.—Howard University “My interests are many and varied. I feel that being a member of the faculty offers me a wonderful oppor tunity, which will open many doors leading in many different directions.” Miss M. Alexander — R. S.—Spellman College M.
