\V. Vespers last Sunday evening,

programs of the year. It consisted

Sigma Omicron Alpha
Debates At Meeting
The Sigma Omicron Alpha held
its monthly meeting January 15,
1929, at 7:00 in the campus living
room. Mary Brewer gave a report
from the committee for interclass
debates, stating that the President
of the college, and the Presidents of
the classes favored this plan,
was decided that the. same commit
tee handle the details of the plan.
A humorous imprmptu debate was
called for, the opponents being Beu
lah M. Zachary, negative, and Doris
Kimel, affirmative. The question for
debate was: Resolved that a centi
pede with corns is worse off than a
giraffe with sore throat. The judges’
decision proved the affirmative side.
The President of the club then
stated the subject for the monthly
debate: Resolved that this audience
■grebes that students, making a suf-
.■ient high grade in a course,
hoiild not be required to take an
examination in that course. The
affirmative was upheld by Mii
Orace Martin and Margaret Bren-
necker, while the negative v/as plead
by Misses Edna I.indsey and Cath
The points for the affirmative were
numerous. Some are as follows
The promise of exemption from ex
aminations will be an incentive foi

come because of a promise of ex
emption from the drudgery of exam

study all along, when a few hours
of concentrated study, (commonly
known as cramming) will pass him

it has been proved, the student will
do better work. So, no-exams is a
Cramming may pull a student
through an examination, but when
tlie nervous tension is over he will
forget much that he has learned
during this time of'Strain.
The purpose of exams is to prove
the knowledge and capacity of a

good grades, that student lias proved

Count Luckner Will
Lecture Tuesday Night
Luckner will lecture on
Tuesday night, January 22nd, in
Memorial Hall, and will tell his own
story of the sea raids during the
World War, which he conducted
upon allied mercliantmen without
the loss of a single life.
This is not a story of submarine
torpedoing, but the extraordinary
narrative of a twentieth century
type of World War Pirate, who
transformed a small and almost de
fenseless sailing vessel into a sea
raider of mercliant marine only, not
of passenger bearing ships, and
scoured the Atlantic over thousands
of miles successfully “liolding up”
This story lias been received with
the utmost enthusiasm by enormous
audiences all over the United States.
Count I.uekner has been honored in
a signal manner by the American
Legion as a brave and fearless, but
thoroughly humane Commander, la
boring with remarkable results un
der unparalleled handicaps and
performing deeds appropriate to two
centuries ago upon the high seas.
Count Luckner, though of German
ancestry, has lived all over the
world, and has spent much time in
his early life in America, so that
his command of English speech is
such as to make his lecture thorough
ly enjoyable to an English speak
This lecture is being given com

finally she arrived at the top of it,
at the goal which every one seeks.

the club was entertained by Miss
Grace Martin who read Romance, a
three-act play by Edward Shelton.
The story, most dramatic and ap

cause of Miss Martin’s excellent
portrayal of the characters, she
brought to life each person in the
