of the members of the Websterian
Literary Society fully lived up to the
The guests were met at the door
by the marshal and ushered into
the hall, of which a part had been
screened off so as to leave just space
enough for the gathering. The
guests were given the seats of honor
in the center. The hall was taste
fully decorated in the green sym
oolic of St. Patrick and the Irish.
The program was a continuation of
the same idea and very cleverly
Miss Edna Raiford as an introduc
tion to the program of the evening,
told in a clear, simple manner some
of the legends of concern
ing their patron saint. "A Little
Bit of Heaven" was ithen rendered
quite effectively by Miss Clara Hen
ley. This is one of the old Irish
melodies that one never grows tired
of hearing and Miss Henley put the
expression necessary in her song to
make it appreciated.
A lively debate between Misses
Ru h Outland and Isla Thompson of
the affirmative and Misses Ruth Rey-
nolds and Nell Schoolfield of 'the
negative, on the question that Eng
land should now grant Ireland her
independence, was won affirmatively.
The question was well developed and
debated on both sides. The rebuttal
were specially spicey and exciting.
A piano solo, "Evening Chimes,"
by Miss Thelma Cloud, was heartily
applauded. Misses Carroll and Hay
worth then gave a clever Irish char
acter sketch in costume. With real
Irish wit they scored nearly every
one present in one manner or an
A few words in appreciation of
their hostesses' hospitality were
then spoken by ithe guests. Miss
Elsie Clegg, as President of the So

rendition of a very clever report by

shown in the following delightful

MISS HAZLETT, A SECRETARY
OP STUDENT VOLUNTEER
A Report of Davidson Conference
Given In Chapel
Guilford students were glad to wel
come Miss Hazelett as their visitor
on Monday and Tuesday, March 16
and 17. While here, she gave two
inspiring talks to the whole student
body and held conferences with
many students who are considering
the foreign mission field as a pros
pective field of work.
On Monday evening, Miss Hazlett
based her talk on the subject, "Why-
One Should Be a Volunteer for For
eign Service." She showed clearly
that no student should be satisfied
with the plan for his life until he
has considered all fields of work, in
the light of the high standard of
service. Life work should be chosen
in the field of greatest need. After
the need is seen clearly and even
