Kdith K. Chisholm, ’34, K.K.A., High Point, N. C.:
How is everything thereV I do hope the school is
larger this year. The work is so interesting
the group is large enough for every one to get ^
I'esting chance. I trust that your .Juniors are as m er-
ested in their introduction to a study of the Old
Testament as we were. P. S.—Bow-wow to Trixy.
Kuby A. Knox, ’34, E.ll.A. St. Louis:
I have heard of what a successful year has opened
for Bishop Tuttle School. I am so glad, and hope
that everything is running smoothly. I shall always
appreciate tiie training I received. The Tuttleites are
not organized here, but I wisli they would. How is
Trixy ?
Etholia A. Kobinson, ’34, Wilmington. N. C.;
I have a case load of more than 130, and my allot
ment for this month is more than $1,200. The people
liere are very friendly. It is a sad place to 1k3 with
out a car, because trolley cars are used only for
souvenirs. I have trudged so often thrcmgh the sand
that I have become a sand-human (a person covered
with sand).
(Miss Robinson was transferred to Raleigh ver.y
soon afterward.)
The annual “Feast of Lights,” as the Epiphany
Service is sometimes called at St. Augustine’s,
was the usual beautiful and reverent occasion
w'hich has established it through the years as one
of the high lights of the school term and the
Church year. This year the chapel was over
flowing with visiting worshippers.
The service begins with the procession, headed
by the Wise Men, who enter before the choir,
singing, “We Three Kings.” The chapel is il
luminated by a glowing star placed high over the
altar. The only other light in the building is a
single taper on the altar. As the procession
enters the chancel the Wise Men approach the
altar rail, each one in turn presenting his sym
bolic gift. Evening prayer and a sermon on the
significance of the season and the service pre
ceding the offering received for missions.
Tapers are distributed throughout the church
so that every one present may have communicated
to him from his neighbor the Light which in
turn has been derived from the single light on
the altar. The service ends as the congregation
files out into the night, each bearing his light,
while the choir sings, “Light of Light That
The reverence of the congregation, the atten
tion given to Kev. Mr. Goold’s address, and the
offering—all indicated that something of the true
significance of the Epiphany had been felt by
those who took part in the service.
