WINSTON-SALEM, N. C, FRIDAY, MAY H, 1934.
SENIORS SPONSOR INDIVIDUAL SHOW
1934 May Day
Huge Crowd Sees
May Day this year, according
general opinion, readied tlie very peak
of its former successes. Tlie first
fears were assuaged by the dawn of
a perfect day, sunny, mild, with just
the right degree of warmth. By two-
thirty in the afternoon, when people
commenced arriving on foot, by taxis,
street cars, autos, and buses, the suc
cess of the event wais assured
Crowds continued pouring in even af
ter the start-of the pageant, until the
audience assembled surpassed all for
mer crowds by far.
With such an outstanding start, the
necessity of a brilliant performance
was imminent. That which followed
was beyond all anticipation. The
dresses were beautifully in keeping
with the occasion and set off the love
liness of the attendants to a great
advantage. Fashioned of light crepe
and molded to the form, they swept
the ground with rows of airy ruffles
to match those around Uie dropped
Miss Elois Padrick and Mary Brown
appeared first in peach; next follow
ed Miss Phyllis Clapp and Miss Garn-
elle Rainey in aquamarine blue; then
Miss Hilda Penn and Miss Ruth Mc
Leod in yellow; Miss Cokey Preston
and Miss Lucy James in turquoise
blue; Miss Marguerite Goodman and
Miss Beverly Little in pink; and last
of all. Miss Miriam Stevenson and
Miss Mary Lou Kerr in green. Then
came Miss Grace Pollock, maid of
tionor, and lovely in blue starched lac
ed fashioned with a ruffle down the
back extending to the floor.
Pollock carried pink roses while the
attendants had arm bouquets of spring
flowers tied with ribbons contrasting
Last of all appeared the beautiful
Queen of the May, Miss Mildred
Hanes, exquisite in a lovely talored
white satin gown made with a regal
collar anti fli#» frrrmn/l

a graceful train. She carried ai

After the ascension of the queen
her throne, the heralds, McArn Best
and Florida Graves, announced the
May Day Pageant. This performance
from the grand entrance of Bernard
Shaw, (Bushie Mcl.ean), Ghandi
(Ginny Nall), Maurice Chevalier
(Mary Penn), the Magician (Jane
Rondthaler), and the great retinue of
ancient beauty queens, to tlie last
swaying melodies of the dance of the
Cleopatras was superb. Not a cue or
a line written by Cokey Preston and
Mary Penn was missed and the cos
tumes were charming—the Scotch
Highland Fling, the Bee Dance, the
Bowery, and the Cleopatra Dance,
and the Russian Dance of Miss Zina
Vologodsky and Miss Martha Neal
were excellent in their line also.
The success of the pageant, and
the court as well, was due beyond
doubt to the various committees,
headed by Miriam Stevenson and her
assistant Mary Penn. Without their
continued bar work and the direction
of Cokey Preston, Mrs. Gloria Ci
and Miss Hazel Horton Read, the
presentation would have been imposs

Dean Vardell Gives
In Y. P. Meeting
“Improvisation” Subject of
Dean Vardell, a musician of note,
presided in chapel last Wednesday.
The subject which he chose wajs Im
provisations... He proceeded to play
a few measures based on the major
scale, the single tonic and the domi
nant chord. His entire program was
interrupted here and there by com
ments on whatever he was about to
undertake. He built up a short com
position on the great scale which De
bussy, the French composer, had orig
inated. Then there followed improvi
sations featuring polytonality (2 keys
superimposed) and atonality (no key
at all). The grand finale wasi in a
form of a sonate based on the themes
contributed by Miss Jarrett and Miss
Fuller. We mean the fact that this
improvised composition of Dean Var-
’ ;irs was not recorded.
Encores followed encores. After
much persuasion. Dean Vardell con
sented to play another composition,
based upon the notes contributed by
members of the senior class (a, f,
h-flat, b, d.) The seniors would do
well to adopt the music for a class
song. The last encore was a composi
tion of his own. It bears a striking
resemblance to the works of Cyril
Dean Vardell ha sbeen heard by
Salemltes at the graduation recitals.
But the occasions are very rare when
we hear him play by himself. We are
grateful to those who have granted us
the opportunity to hear him and we
only hope that his performances will
be numerous. We clamor for the
music of Dean Vardell.
House Party Is
I. R. S. Hostesses to High
The House Party this year seems
to have been a great success. The
guests showed all signs of enjoying
every bit of the interesting program
planned for them. Those who were
here in time for chapel Saturday
heard an interesting talk by Dr.
Rondthaler about Salem trees and
how they were Injured by the storm.
This chapel was held out-of-doors.
The guests had lunch in the dining
room witli the students, after which
they were taken for a long ride over
the city. The May Day Pageant was
at four o’clock. Picnic supper was
served In the court between Society,
Alice Cllewell, a!nd Louisa WHson
Bitting Buildings. The Anti-Climax
of the program for May Day was
the delightful dance Saturday night
in the gym.
Many very energetic guests and
students got up Sunday morning In
time for a delicious waffle breakfast.
Our visitors distributed themselves at
various churches of the city for morn
ing service. At dinner Sunday the
guests and students made good the
little time left them in which to talk
and get acquainted. At after-dinner
coffee at the Rondthalers, the visitors
became better acquainted with our
president and his wife.
We hope that all the girls who were
here for the May Day House Party
