On the evening of April the 6th
the fourth number of the Lyceum
Course was given in Memorial Hall.
The Fredericks Company Trio, com
posed' of Misses Corinne Schroeder,
pianiste and Grace Kohn, soprano,
and Mr. Fredericks, violinist, pre
sented the evening's entertainment.
The program, which was artistically
arranged, consisted almost entirely
of musical numbers.
Miss Schroeder gave the first
number, which consisted of two in
strumental selections, "Romanza,"
by Sibelins and "Egyptian Dance" by
Friml. Miss Schroeder was at her
best in the presentation of the first
The second number was two selec
tions from Cad-man, "From the Land
of the Sky Blue Water," and "When
the Moon Drops Low," given in cos
tume by Miss Kohn. She possesses
a soprano voice remarkable for its
powerful resonance and this num
ber was a good demonstration of
this particular quality.
"Air Russe," by Wienawski, was
a violin solo rendered in a skillful
manner by Mr. Fredericks, accom
panied by Miss Schroeder.
The fourth number followed. Miss
Schroeder impersonated a bride mar
keting. Next, she successfully im
personated a modern woman ad
dressing a Woman's Club. Then she
gave a conversation over the tele
phone of a fiancee to her suitor fol
lowed by a later conversation be
tween the same couple three years
Mr. Fredericks rendered the fifth
number which consisted of "Ava
Maria," by Schubert-Wilhelmi, and
"Jota Navarra," by Saracate. In the
presentation of "Ava Maria," Mr.
Fredericks demonstrated a complete
mastery of his instrument.
In the sixth number Miss Kohn
delighted the audience with the fol
lowing selections: "An Open Secret,"
by Woodman; "La Sereniata," by
Tosti, and "Daddy's Sweetheart," by
Lehman. The third selection was
very pleasing and Miss Kohn's ar
ticulation was especially good.
Mr. Frederisks then gave "The
Rosary," by Nevin-Kreister; "Annie
Laurie," by Kriens and "Tango," by
Rehfeld, all three of which were very
The audience was again favored
with Miss Schroeder's impersonation
of Harry Lauder in "I Love a Las
sie," and "I Love to Be a Sailor."
The last number was as follows:
"Angel's Serenade," by Braga;
"Swanee River —Humoresque" and
"Les Pre Aux Clere," by Herod, were
given by the trio.
The encores were especially good
and also very carefully selected.
GUILFORD COLLEGE, N. C., APRIL 14, 1920
THIRTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CON
TEST WELL CONTENDED
The 34th annual oratorical contest
of the Websterian Literary Society
which was held in Memorial Hall
Saturday night, brought forth quite
an unusual variety of subjects both
interesting and unusual. Some re
cent writer has said that the in
terest in oratory which once was so
great throughout the South was fast
dying out, but we must somewhat
disagree with the writer, as far as
Guilford is concerned, because of the
fact that the interest in the ora
torical contests at Guilford is still
Saturday night's contest exhibited
speeches augmentative, political, ele
gant and discriptive. J. Hampton
Price's speech entitled "Service
First," which was a portrayal of the
spirit of service in America during
the past few years and the present
time, however, won for him the
much coveted Websterian orator's
A logical, clear argument against
militarism in the United States en
titled "The Nemesis of Docility,"
was delivered by Samuel P. Harris.
"The Romance of Alaska," by Dab
ney White, painted a very pretty
picture of that far northland, its
roughness, its grandeur, which made
men out of the scum sent to it, and
its almost unlimited wealth of forest
Charles Rolinson's oration, "The
New Era," was a resume of the part
labor has played in bringing the
United States up to its present world
position. He touched briefly 011 the
present needs of labor in the econ
The last oration, by John Dor
sett, was somewhat anti-labor. "The
One Big Union," which was its sub
ject, meant the United States. A
strong plea for Americanism to down
Bolshevism was contained in this
oration. Dorsett closed his speech
by presenting Governor Allen, of
Kansas', plan as a possible solution
of the present labor situation.
While the judges were retired for
the decision, J. Gurney Briggs, a
former Websterian, sung "The Roses
of Picardy." He was heartily ap
plauded and encored. Miss Kath
arine Harmon played the accom
paniment for him.
The judges for the contest were
Professor J. B. Woosley, Dr. C. O.
Meredith and Ira Hinshaw. Dr.
Meredith delivered the medial in his
own humorous style.

but soon Miss Louise made her ap

turned the procession back and led
them to the east parlor, whore the
room was beautifully decorated with
candles and plants.
Each person was adorned with a
fool's cap, and told to prepare for a
pie-eating contest. Oh, how eagerl>
each one, at the given signal, en
tered into the contest! But hopes
perhaps did not run quite so h'gh
when it was discovered that for the
usual ingredients of pie, cotton had
been substituted. Strange to 110
one won the prize. The Senior.?, wore
next told that they were to t.uce a
make-up exam, on Logic and were

syllogisms! Some there wer? thai
even Dr. Hobbs would have been
puzzled over arranging. Pr." r . Brin

Easttr eggs, in this contest.
Delicious refreshments consisting
of sandwiches and iced tea, were
served, after which Prof. Brinton en
tertained the assemblage with ac
counts of some of his experiences.
A very interesting fature of ihe
evening was an account of a dream
by Leslie Barrett. Leslie had
dreamed of seeing all his classmates
in 1950, and although some were
found in rather surprising places,
all seemed to be very well con
