Mrs. Hamilton Tells of Inter
esting Experiences in
Foreign Mission Field
In Y. P. M. Wednesday morning
Mrs. Kenneth Hamilton presented
in an interesting talk
tion of life in Nicaragua. Mrs.
Hamilton was formerly Miss Paul
ine Peterson, a graduate and later
a teacher of this institution. She
was born in Winston-Salem and aft
er completing her schooling and sev
eral years of teaching, she was mar
ried and sailed for the Moravian
Mission field on the east coa
Nicaragua which has been
home during her residence in Cen
With a graphic description of the
topography of her adopted land,
the speaker gave her audience
id impression of the peculiarities of
its coastal regions. The range of
mountains which separates the east
coast from the west coast serves to
divide two widely different types of
civilization. That of the west coasi
resembles the life of old Spain. It
is there that Senoritas and Senors
view typical bull fights. It is
there that one sees railroads, autos,
and occasional street cars. The cus

There are no railroads, but only

nothing but beansacks. A more enjoy
able way of traveling, according to
Mrs. Hamilton is by the Indian pit-
pan which is a hollowed-out log made
so as to accommodate two peoph
comfortably. Since trips of this sort
usually begin about sundown,
noise of the birds as they go to
roost for the night, is always
ciated with departure, but as t
tives paddle all night and all day
the first memories of the journey
give place to fresh and more lasting
impressions— the wailing of the
death chants of the Indian
riverside villages, the racket of the
waking monkeys at sunrise.
Travel on the ocean schooner is
hardly more bearable. One experi
ence which Mrs. Hamilton related
took place on a small schooner which
had been overtaken suddenly by a
terrific storm. Another adventure,
hardly less thrilling, found the
two Americans on a barge about the
size of a life-boat with a Spanish
family whose baggage consisted of
a dog, two cats, a crate of chickens,
and a sick pig.
Adventures on the sea and the
river were followed in Mrs. Hamil
ton’s talk by an account of a
a heathen village not far from their
own headquarters. The queer mut-
terings of a Souci, an “understudy”
to a witch doctor, greeted their ar

Most people have found that
joyment of life and success on
job are measured largely by
ability to get along easily with other
people and to win their friendship
and respect. Some people seem
born to be “good mixers.” In the
rest this ability has to be cultivated.
Doctor Fred A. Moss, a disting
uished young psychologist of George
Washington University, Washing
ton, D. C., assisted by Dr. Thelma
Hunt, has prepared the tests pre
sented here. Already he has em
ployed them with excellent results,
in judging the qualifications of
thousands of men and women, in
cluding groups of college students
and employees of business houses.
The tests cover the qualities which
are necessary to get along easily
with other people:
‘Test Number One is to help
person check up on the amount of
general information which he pos
sesses,” Doctor Moss explains. “At
rule, men make a far better show

whenever she thought of real friends,
she thought of Jonathan and David,

fact proves that there must be two
people included under the
Friendship. There must be sym

a sincerity and trustfulness be

the ability to keep other people’s

be a friend to have friends!

Great Pianist Played in Usual
On Friday evening, January 9, at
the Armory Auditorium in Charlotte,
Ignace Jan Paderewski gave a con
cert. Paderewski is generally con
ceded to be the greatest living pian
ist in the world, and he justified
such a concession in his usual per
fect manner before a large and en
thusiastic audience. The concert
was scheduled for 8:30 o’clock and
given a fitting finale by the per
formance of three brilliant encores.
Paderewski’s encores were given ii.
recognition of enthusiastic applause
and acclaim by his entire audience.
The first selection was one of the
most beautiful on the entire program.
Brahm’s “Variations and
Fugue” on a theme by Handel. The
characteristic softness and gentle
rythm of Brahm’s were predomi
nantly expressed in this selection.
Four short selections from De-
Bussy were enthujiastically re
ceived. His “Minstrels” was by far
the most beautiful of the four and
was played again by Paderewski in
response to general applause. Rach
maninoff’s noted “Prelude in C sharp
minor” gave the pianist a brilliant
opportunity to display to the fullest
extent his marvelous interpretative
power and his truly .perfect tech
nique. Paderewski is a master of
technique and his rendition of this
prelude was faultless in every sense
of the word.
(Continued on Page Three)
The best known and probably the
best liked selection on Paderewski’s
program was Beethoven’s immortal
“Moonlight Sonata.” He played
the entire Sonata including each of
the three movements. The first move
ment, “Adagio postenuto,” is no
doubt the one best known by every-
only musicians, and it was
the movement which proved most
delightful to Paderewski’s audience.
The soft dreamy theme and the gen
tle swinging rythm of it was perfect
ly rendered by the perfect pianist.
The other two movements are faster
and do not contain the same quality
of fragile beauty as the first.
A "Nocturne in E Flat,” by Cho-
_ n was unusually well rendered and
Paderewski held his audience spell
bound as each soft note sounded
through the hall as clearly and dis
tinctly as though he were playing in
a small room.
Paderewski’s international reputa
tion is attributed not only to his
genius as a composer, but also to his
faultless and masterly technique and
his perfect ear for tone and rythm.
The entire program was as fol
