EXQUISITE SERVICE and CHIF
FON WEIGHT HOSE, IN THE
NEWEST COLORS, HEELS And
NOVELTY STYLES, ON OUR
I NATIONAL BELLAS-HESS CO.
On Monday and Wednesday eve
nings, October the fourteenth and
sixteenth, at her home on Hawthorne
road. Miss Covington—head of the
Department of Sociology and Eco-
nomcs, informally entertained the
members of her economics class.
All the guests, and the hostess,
too, had a sticky time Monday night
—and liked it. They with one ac
cord retreated to the kitchen, soon
after their arrival, donned aprons,
armed themselves with spoons and
began mixing butter, sugar, choco
late, and (the essential) what-not to
make different kinds of candy. They
performed part of their exercise for
this week’s Efficiency Program by
wrestling energetically with pull-
candy. Later in the evening the
guests were served a frozen fruit
salad, and hot rolls. The star en
tertainer of the occasion was Ruth
Carter, “Yo-yo” expert, who gave
an amazing exhibition.
On Wednesday evening marshmal
low-toasting, contests, and fortune-
telling kept tlie invited guests thor
oughly amused. Miss Covington’s
beautiful castle-shaped cake delight
ed the girls more than anything else
—especially since it was another
means of fortune-telling. Louise I.as-
ater, because her birthday was near
est to the sixteenth of October, was
voted the one to blow out the candles
on the cake. Therefore, it is now
known that she will be married with
in the next year. When the cake
was cut and passed around, Claire
I.ockett Haines nearly swallowed the
i-ing—a sure sign that her “days of
single bliss” are nearly at end. Car
rington Iloleman’s slice of cake con
tained a trunk key, which, Miss Cov
ington assured her, meant that she
will marry a Methodist minister and
- will be almost constantly packifig,
her trunk to move to another town.
Catherine Bell Helm bit the dime
that everybody had been hoping to
get. She jumped with joy at the
realization that she was destined to
become the spouse of a rich man.
Then Julia Brown Jennings, hith
erto unrecognized as being the soul
of optimism, when she found the but
ton which signified tliat she would
spend her life sewing buttons on her
poo rhusband’s clothes, said that it
was some consolation just to know
that she would acquire a husband--
buttons, or no buttons. Mary Ayers
Payne barely escaped the fate of
being a spinster lady, by spying the
needle protruding from a piece of
cake which she had started to take.
She warned the others, so that they
might avoid the possibility of invol
untary permanent maidenhood.
During the evening pickles, indi
vidual iced cakes, almonds, candy,
and Polar Bars were served.
About forty-five girls enjoyed
Miss Covington’s hospitality.

ABOl'T LIFE IN AFRICA

the women. There was almost no
sickness except epidemics, such as
the Black War fever and a sleeping
sickness caused by the bite of the
tstse fly. Cannibalism was another
form of epidemic, still existent in
Africa. Cannibalis mreally had its
origin in religious rites; women and
children w'cre not eaten by these peo
ple, only men. The chieftain always
ate the brains of the victim because
lff*'siTi^rslffimis’ inflflerices. Pdlyg-
amv, or rather domestic slavery, was
also practiced in the Congo district,
according to Dr. Mangum. This is
the system of one man having many
wives, who do all the work for him
while he hunts.
About twice a month around 20,-
000 people gathered at the native
market, bringing for sale rice,
groundnuts, bananas, pineapples,
dogs, chickens, caterpillars, lizards,
and dried ants. Dr. Mangum de
clared that he had seen one ant-hill
larger than all the buildings on Sa
lem campus. He said that several
pecks of dried ants, thirty pounds of
salt, a hunk of copper, and from
twenty to forty square yard pieces
of cloth would buy a wife. Thus
the South Africans use the method of
barter and exchange instead of
The Boluna language, that is the
old language with the archaic prefix
as its main characteristic, is used;
but there are many dialects which
differ about as much' as the romance
languages of today.
Dr. Mangum said that the life of
the missionary is not particularly
hard, because the natives greatly
reverence the whites. They believe
i:i a Sky God, one -v'u) was -reator
of the universe but who takes no in
terest in human affairs; they also be
lieve in evil spirits and reverence
certain animals. It is not difficult
for the missionary to impress the na
tive with the Christian idea of God
and Providence becausc he already
believes in the Sky-God.
In flaming terms he described Af
rica as the I.and of Silence, the
Country of Fear, after nightfall.
Crocodiles and leopards were the
terrors of the villages. He described
the heat and the beauty of the tropi
cal night with the Southern Cross
blazing in the star-spangled sky.
Along with the churches and mis
sion schools the colony established
school houses; for religion and edu
cation must march liand in hand.
Many people think that it is not
right to send missionaries into Af
rica to the black man, but Dr. Man
gum refuted that argument. He gave
in conclusion an example of the
faithfulness of two Christian natives
to the great pathfinder, David Liv
ingston, thus proving again the worth
and beauty of the verse, “Go Ye
into all the world and preach the
Gospel to every living creature.”
Simple Solution—^“What can I do
to avoid falling hair.?” “Jump out
of the way.”
Ain’t that Hot!—Why all the fuss
about the modern girl and her
smokes? Even Rebekah had her
favorite brand for, according to Gen.
24:66, “When she saw Isaac she
lighted off the camel.”
