Misses Roper-Sargent
Give Brilliant Recital
Appreciative Audience Attends First
Graduating Recital of Year
A recital of unusual beauty and
merit took place last night in Me
morial Hall when Miss Emily Sar
gent, violinist, and Miss Elizabeth
Roper, pianist, appeared in a pro
gram which won enthusiastic ap
plause from the large audience which
attended.
Both Miss Roper and Miss Sar
gent are members of this year’s
graduating class of Salem College
and are pupils of Dean Vardell and
Miss Hazel Reed, respectively.
Their performance last evening
gave evidence of marked talent and
interpretive ability, and was
distinctly praiseworthy in erary re-
The opening number on the pro
gram was the Presto Movement of
the Beethoven “Sonato for Violin
and Piano,” op. 23, in which both
Miss Sargent and Miss Roper were
participants. Their ensemble play
ing was excellent, displaying a spir
ited style and decided technical fa
cility.
Miss Roper’s first solo group
opened with the lovely Liszt “Ec
logue,” in which just the proper at
mosphere of pastoral tranquility was
created. In the “Schumann Inter
mezzo” which followed. Miss Roper
achieved a splendid climax, making
the most of the subtle harmonic pro
gressions and contrapuntal intrica
cies in which the composition
abounds.
Miss Sargent’s performance of
the beautiful “Mozart Concerto in
Major,” accompanied by Dean
Vardell at the organ, brought the
program to a striking climax. The
dignity of the allegro movement with
its brilliant cadenza contrasted beau
tifully with the Andante. In the
latter Miss Sargent did some of her
artistic playing. The Rondo,
the last movement of the Concerto,
performed with unusual skill
and musical taste.
Miss Roper’s second group, se
lected from the modern school, op
ened with Paderewski’s “Melodie,”
which a lovely singing tone was
revealed. In the difficult Rachman
inoff “Humoreske” Miss Roper’s
playing was characterized by a cer-
in distinctiveness of style which

Miss Lochman Speaks on Movement
Of World-Wide Interest
Miss Ruth Lochman, the speaker
in the expanded chapel service
Wednesday morning, gave a very
teresting talk on Prohibition. Miss
Lochmon is a representative of the
Intercollegiate Prohibition Associa
tion and is speaking in all southern
colleges on this subject.
Many people question the fact
that girls are interested in the pro
hibition movement. The speaker
said that today girls are facing the
same problems and situations as
men, and therefore should bear the
same responsibilities to society. Al
cohol has a peculiar power on the
body. The appetite and desire for
it grows rapidly. One of the main
reasons for prohibition was to take
away this beverage so that the
young people, boys and girls alike,
might not be tempted to use it.
However no great task is ever pro
posed that someone does not say
“It can’t be done,” and in the prohi
bition movement there was no ex
ception to this. Whether prohibi
tion is the best thing or not. Miss
Lochmon stated, we know
)t want alcoholic beverages.
Before prohibition the national
drink bill in the United States each
ye_ar was enormous, and increased
steadily. In 1909 there was enough
money used for liquor to employ
3,000,000 men for five years
three dollars a day.

destructive rather than con
structive. The question of intem
perance and its effiect upon crime,
industrial efficiency, heredity, feeble
mindedness and insanity is being in
vestigated by many great economists
and scientists. It has been proven
that many feeble-minded people and
criminals were born of drinking pa
rents. Prohibition, concluded the
speaker, is not an end in itself but
a means to an end—to the end of
doing away with alcohol altogether.
' ■ just another step toward free
dom—the freedom for which every
nation is striving. Since everyone
has the power of choice it is up to
each individual to decide for him
self the attitude to adopt toward
this all-important question.

University Cruise to
Leave on Third Trip
The Third University World
Cruise, sailing from New York Oc
tober 10 for a seven months world
tour, during which students and
professors will carry on a college
year of study, was announced yes

Travel Association at 285 Madison
avenue. New York City. The Cun-
ard cruise-ship “Letitia,” a modern,
oil-burning liner, has been chartered
for the world cruise. Dr. James E.
Lough, president of the pioneer
Floating University, will have charge
of all educational matters. The Cun-
ard Line is to operate the steamship,
and the enroute service will manage
the extensive shore programs.
The academic year of the Third
University World Cruise consists of
two semesters. The first semester is
spent on a three months European
tour. England, Holland, Belgium,
Franee, Switzerland, Germany, Aus
tria and Italy are visited
The second semester, commencing
January 28, is held on board the
Cunarder “Letitia,” while she cruises
to Greece, Palestine, Egypt, Som
aliland, India, Ceylon, Sumatra, Ja
va, Straits Settlements, Borneo,
China, Korea, Japan, Hawaii, Cali
fornia, Panama and Cuba. The stud
ents enjoy shore excursions at all
ports, besides taking long overland

rate includes tuition and all shore
excursions and overland tours.
The very material reduction
rates have been made possible
through the co-operated manage-
of the University Travel Asso
ciation, the Cunard Steamship Line
and the enroute service. This
operation has resulted in many
onomies, for each of the three firms

Senior Class Has
Charge of Vespers
Relation of Freshmen to the F. W.
C. A. Is Emphasised
The Senior Class had charge of
the Y. W. Vesper Services, Sunday
Night, April 7, in Memorial Hall.
Margaret Hauser read the Scriptures
which was followed by the Lord’s
Prayer. Emily Sargent, accom
panied by Margaret Johnson, played
a violin solo. Then came talks by
Mary Miller Falkener and Elizabeth
Andrews. Miss Falkener spoke on
the relation of the Freshman to the
Y. W. She showed the many ways
which the Freshman is influenced
by the Christian leadership which
the Y. W. offers.
Miss Andrews showed the import
ance of a girl’s entering into every
phase of campus life from the very-
beginning of her Freshman year.
‘When a girl reaches her Senior
year,” she said, “she often begins to
regret the fact that she has not taken
advantage of all the opportunities
offered her. She feels that if she
were given one more chance she
could live a much fuller and more
profitable college life.”
During the first few weeks of her
freshman year a girl chooses her
group of friends. If she is not care
ful she will limit herself to too few
companions and will regard only her
own interests as things of value.
She will fail to keep informed about
the various social and athletic ac
tivities on the campus, and often
times even about the scholastic or
ganizations. If the girl returns her
Sophomore year, she probably finds
that she must join a new group be
cause a number of her old friends
have failed to come back. She drifts
through her second year utterly ob
livious to the opportunities offered to
her by the Y. W. C. A., the Ath
letic Association, the Student Gov
ernment Association, and other or
ganizations on the campus. The
third year she comes back, lives in
Junior hall and is thrown with only
the members of her class, and there
by becomes acquainted with a num
ber of girls whom she has not known
before. And for the first time be
gins to realizei what class spiri|t
really is. Then in the spring of
her Junior year she may be elected
responsible position and
because of the years of distinterest
behind her, feels entirely lost. In
her Senior year when it is really
too late to do any good, she fully
realizes the mistake she has made,
and regrets her narrowness and
selfishness.
The Seniors wish to leave a bit
of advice with the Freshmen and
Sophomores: “Realize your oppor
tunities and take advantage of them
order that you may be prepared
fill the places for which you will
be chosen later in life, not only in
■ollege, but in after years as well.
College is not merely a matter of
attending classes from day to day,
it is for the purpose of training a
boy or girl to meet and master any
situation which might arise in
future years. Therefore, let us do
best to live a broad, full and
creative life.”
