ing With Greater Expectations
Than Ever Before.
Many Added Features This Year.
‘“Hardy” hails from Eiisley high
school, Alabama. “Hardy” was all-
state center during his last year in high
school, playing four years and a man
in every game. “Hardy” came to us
in 1927 and has been holding the posi
tion as center for our team since.
“Hardy” has not missed a game the
five years that he has played.
The department of music is opening
with greater expectations than ever be
fore. Try-outs are to be made for the
different musical organizations this
week. In the church choir there are
vacancies- to be filled both in the tenor
and in the soprano departments.
During the summer, Professor Velie
studied with Von Nuckurtz, an out
standing Austrian pianist, and also with
Adolph Weidig, a noted theory teacher.
Mrs. Velie did some special voice work
with Lucy Peery, who had just return
ed from her European, studies where
she was soloist at the American church
The music department is very fortu
nate in having on its faculty Miss Benn,
who has recently studied in New York.
Miss Benn has an excellent voice, and
she has already won the admiration of
all those who have heard her.
DD. WICKER ADDRESSES
Dr. Wicker Speaks Some Very Fitting
Words to Those Who Are Beginning
a New School Year.
I)r. W. C. Wicker, who led chapel ser
vice on Monday morning of this week,
spoke some very fitting words to those
who are beginning a! new school year.
He pictured life as a mountain. He
said that the view from the top is
splendid when life has been filled with
well done tasks and pleasant associa
tions. “You are standing at the foot
of the mountain,” said Dr. Wicker.
“The, journey up the mountain-side is
in the making. One of the most useful
things yoti can do in college is to learn
to think. Life is filled with problems
that must be solved by those who have
learned to think. Life is also a school.
You will not always have instructors
td guide you; you must be both in
structor and pupil later on. Learn to
t'.iii k so that there will be no end to your
education but that you may be able
to kee^J on learning.” Dr. Wicker read
Phillipians 4:8. He urged the student
body to “think on these things,” for,
h( continued in the worils of the Bible,
“ ‘As a man thiuketh in his heart, so
is he.’ ”

Mrs. William Allen Harper, president
of North Carolina Federation of Music
Clubs, stated' in an interview here to
day that the officers of the Federation,
ill co'-operation with the National Fed
eration, will plan an intensive program
for the increase of Music Education and
organizations in the state, beginning
Mrs. Ha^rper stated that North Caro
lina since the Convention held at San
ford, April 1927, has been rated in Class
A-1 by the National Federation. Any
state Federation, according to Mrs.
Harper, has as many as one hundred fed
erated clubs, is entitled to this rating.
For the first, time this state has been
entitled to" be so rated. This is cause
of real satisfaction for those who have
sponsored the work in North Carolina.
There are in North Carolina now
sixty-three Senior Clubs and sixty-five
Junior Clubs, a total of one hundred
and twenty-eight organizations federat
ed with the State Federation. Tliree
years ago there were but thirty-eight
federated organizations devoted to the
love of music in this state. It is evi
dence of the growing appreciation of
music and of the part the federation
has played, which accounts, for this
rapid growth; but Mrs. Harper is of
the opinion that the future for the Fed
eration work in this state is greater
than the past has been.
The state has been divided into five
districts. These districts are as follows:
The Capital District, Mrs. J. S. Correll,
director, Raleigh, N. C.; The Eastern
District, Mrs. William Spicer, director,
Goldsboro, N. C-; The Piedmont District,
