Young Democrats Hear
Way nick Thursday Night
High Point Editor
Praises Political
Movement Of Youth
Predicts Election of Demo
cratic President
The second meeting of the Young
Democratic Club was held Thurs
day at 7:30 P. M. in the recreation
room of the Louisa Bitting Build
ing. The president Beth Norman,'
after opening the meeting, welcomed
Mr. Capus Wayniek and Mrs. Way-
nick, who is an alumna of Salem
College. Mr. Wayniek, editor of the
Higli Point Enterprise and Demo
cratic nominee for the State Senate,
commended the interest of new
voters and near-voters in the science
of politics, saying that their knowl
edge and consequent support in po
litical affairs would determine the
future course of government.
Mr. Wayniek predicted the elec
tion of a President by the Demo
cratic party this year, but expressed
the conviction that a matter of great
er importance than the election is the
question of the capacity of the lead
ership and the party to improve the
government. Indications show that
the people are turning to the liberal
party for relief from burdens that
have become to heavy; he realized
that the voters are being moved by
feeling as much as, if not more than,
by reasoning as they turn to the par
ty. Under such circumstances, he'
stated, the party itself, from the
youngest member to the highest of
ficial, must be more than ordinarily
concerned in trying to justify the
faith that seems to be developing.
Mr. Wayniek spoke of the folly of
the politically disinterested citizen,
who endeavors to esconee himself in
a fool’s paradise of political security.
The kind of disinterestedness that
almost boasts of indifference to par-^
ties is a weakness, he contended, that
results in t;he abuse of trust and the
service of predatory interests.
“The significance of the organiza
tion of Young Democrats lies not
merely in what the movement does
in helping to elect a ticket, but in

Dean Vardell Traces
History Of The Piano
In First Music Hour Tells
Usefulness of This
The first Music Hour of the year
was a lecture given by Dean Charles
Vardell, on How to Play the Piano.
Mr. Vardell told of seeing the first
piano ever made. It was in the
Metropolitan Museum among in
struments of every kind from all
countries, dating from the beginning
music history to the present day.
This little piano was five feet long;
its ivory keys, yellowed by age, bore
the distinguishing note Christophorc
1720. Resembling the old harpsi
chords it is indeed the great grand
father of our modern pianos.
Dean Vardell told briefly of the
ancestry of the piano. First came
the liarp;then the clavichord, with its
slight variation of tone production;
and then the harpsichord that had no
dynamic variety. Christophore was
the first to make the change from
the harpsichord to the piano. The
dulcimer is another distant ancestor
of tlie piano. Christophore com
bined the dulcimer and harpsichord,
giving to the world the piano, in

General Secretary Of Inter
national Y.W.C.A. Speaks
Rebuilding Of Dining
Room Is Underway
Remodeled Hal! Will Be Im
provement Over Former
Tlie disastrous fall of the dining
room ceiling is fast being remedied
as workmen busy themselves with
building materials. The old plaster
of the dining-room is to be replaced
by a substance called stone board,
which is stronger and more reliable
than the former covering. The walls,
which were comparatively dark be
fore are to be replaced by a light
covering of neutral tints. The walls
will be canvassed and papered.
One of the men doing construction
work on the building was overheard
saying that it was remarkable how
well the whole interior had held uj)
under the stress and strain of many
angry stamps in the library above,
s of s
The middle of this week the men
had completed over three-fourths of
the ceiling work. Their work has
been constant and they have eo-oper-
ated in every conceivable way. The
majority of the work is completed,
and we hope to be re-established in
our new dining room by the last of
tliis week.
Friendship Is Theme Of
Y. W. C. A. Vespers
Students Give Short Talks on
Various Phases of
The Y. W. C. A. Vesper Service
on Sunday evening was given over to
the subject of friendship. After ap
propriate scripture readings from
Samuel, Proverbs, and John, by
Georgia Huntington, Patsy McMull-
an, Adelaide Petree and Mary I.ouise
Mickey gave short talks respectively
on “Forming Friends,” “What You
Look for in a Friend,” and “What
Kind of a Friend Am I ?”
Wherever one goes, and especially
in school, one meets new people, and
facts the pleasure and problem of
making friends, of deciding which
persons would be those who would
be willing to share both the happi
ness and the disappointments. No
where in the world can a person be
absolutelye free from any contact
with another; so, to be able to form
deep and understanding friendships
with another is an ability to be
envied. He is certainly to be pitied
who cannot lay claim to at least one
Undoubtedly the greatest friend
of all ages is Jesus Christ, and from
his example we get the true at
tributes of a real friend. A friend
is congenial, one who will recognize
and feel both one’s hardshps and
one’s joys. A friend can be trustsd
with all one’s innermost feelings,
thoughts, and ideas. H(^ will sym
pathize with one’s eccentricities, will
recognize one’s faults and love in
spite of them. A real friendsliip
both gives and takes; one part is de
pendent on the other part. Because
there are two kinds of friends, it is
unfortunate that there are not two
separate words describing them. One
friend is the kind whose company is
enjoyable but who is not at all in
dispensable. The other is the person
without whom one could not get along
this life. One donates; the other
sacrifices. Someone once asked
Charles Kingsley to what he owed
tlie things which he had accomplish
ed. Without any hesitancy or doubt
Kingsley answered quite sincerely,
“I had a friend.”
Mr. Harmon Discusses
Youth Of World
Refers to World Citizenship
A man sits down and plays a
piece. For the time being the music
is enjoyed, but it is soon forgotten.
A master sits down and plays a com
position. The music becomes a part
of the listener. Mr. Harmon, gen
eral secretary of the international
committee of the Y. M. C. A., be
longs to the latter group. He pre
sented the essence of the future by
saying that life goes the way that the
youth of today take. In the colleges
are the people who will determine
tlie destiny of tomorrow. Tlicy have
opportunities, but t.liey also Siajve
(’olonel Burke, one of Mr. Har
mon’s eo-workers said, “Youth tlie
world over have struck up tents and
are on the march.” What youth un
dertakes to accomplish will be ac
complished. The speaker said that
there are three hundred and twenty
million youths from twelve to
eighteen years of age. Each of these
sliould have the opportunity to make
the most of his life, no matter what
area of the world is his home.
None can confine him-self to one
state, to one nation. We are all
world citizens. It is the duty of
Cliristianity to make the people the
world over friends. The ships which
travel from one part of the globe to
another are tying the nations closer
togetlicr than ever. A.s there was
no boundary for the influenza c])i-
demic, there is no boundary for the
influence of one nation of the world.
Tlierc is no isolation. The person
who thinks tliat the United States is
separated from the rest of the world
is living in a fool’s paradise.

Recreation In Clewell
Offers Diversions
New Equipment Attracts
Students in Leisure
With the greatest pleasure stu-
who like to have a good time welcome
the new reercation room equipment
in the basement of Alice Clewell
Building. Two attractive tables for
ping-pong have been made and
jjlaced in the recreation room, and
two ping-pong sets are in Miss I^aw-
rence’s Office, waiting to be used
during spare hours. Anyone who
wishes to play may secure bats and
balls from the office of the dean.
Louisa Wilson Bitting Building
can no longer look down with scorn
upon Alice Clewell, even though the
former may be more modern and
much younger. Now Clewell boasts
of a recreation room, destined to be
come just as popular and up-to-date
as that in the Senior Buiding. From
time to - time new euipment will be
added. Miss I.awrence will con
tribute her favorite game of ana
grams, and anything from hop-seoteli
to tiddledy-winks may be induldged
in if a recreation-seeking student de
sires. In spite of the fact that the
tables are large, there still remains
sufficient space for dancing.
After tile fashion show to-night,
why not end the evening in the new
recreation room, become acquainted
with ping-pong, and incidentally,
buy refreshments from I. R. S. or
the “Y.” store?
