the University of North Carolina.
‘■“This is a significant occasion,”
Dr. Rogers said, “because we
are entering a 'crucial period of
history in which honors and honor
societies may play the determin
ing part.” He explained that an
honor society is a symbol of values,
a symbol of achievement, and a
symbol of man’s search for know
ledge, tnitli and beauty that makes
man different from the animal.
“Education is fundamentally the
means by which man becomes civil
ized. Education is the last place
where the search should be stifled,”

“Ladies In Retirement,” a three-
act drama, was i>resentcd by the
Picrette Players March 21 and 22
in the Old Chapel.
Normie Tomlin^ as Ellen Creed
]>laycd the leading role with ability
and intensity. The scene was laid
in the living room of an old Jiouse
on the marshes of the Thames
Estuary. Leonora Fiske, the owner
of the home, was portrayed bv
Adele Chase. Albert Feather, Ellen’s
disrepi^able nephew, played by
Dick Cfobb, entered the seem? just
before the arrival of her two mad
sisters, Loiiirfa, played by Mary
Formy-Duval, and Emily, by Helen
Kobbins. Mary Lou Stack, as Lucy
Gilham, the ijiaidi and Jeanne Hod
ges, as Sister The.resa, a nun from
the neighboring convent, were con
vincing in their roles.
The plot centered around Ellen
Creed's fanatical devotion to her
unbalanced sisters and her attempts
to secure a home for them. This
was her motivation for killing the
conquettish old maid, Lenora Fiske,
for whom she was keeping house.
Her sisters were happy ^jjeir
haven, but the arrival of Albert
Feather, fleeing from a charge of
embezzlement, complicated matters.
After several scenes of suspense,
Albert confronted Ellen with his
knowledge of her crime. Unable to
live the death in life which would
be the penance for her crime, Ellen
left her sisters, never to return.

received! play were handled as fol

Smetana’s “Bartered Bride” Chosen
Theme For May Day Pageant
At last Nancy Stone is ready to
let out the theme of this year’s
May Day—the story is taken' from
the opera The Battered Bride by
Smetana. It is going to be a gav
occasion with all Czechoslovakian
music by Smetana and Dvorak. The
dances, too, are all Cz’eck in origin.
Besides the gayness of the Czech
>nusic and dancing there will be the
light and fun loving pageant of
the lad who sold' his bride to another.
niid the colorful pokas, Shef Y'yles,
« gypsy ballerina, flirts about with
all the handsome men. To add laughs
to the color and music of the pageant
Sue Willis, the clumsy, stuttering
clown will be tliere to entertain.
Any of you who know the story
of The Bartered Bride will be
doublod-pleased at this presentation.
These spring days you must most
certainly be thinking of May Day—
If, however, these last few winter
days completeljr’ threw you off the
track, perhaps there was still enough
campus greenery to remind you of
May Day. Haven’t you seen all the
people trying to polka in the smoke
house? Probably Betty Moore was
right in there behind them. Then
there is Charlotte Richards popping
up at the most unexpected moments
to beg you literally on bended knee
to bring back your “broom-stick”
skirts after si)ring' vacation to use
in May Day. Who could have missed
Leila Sullivan getting in practice
for her long solo walk down the
steep, little, narrow path? Most any
day finds Stonie and Mae Murry
tramping to Walker’s Florists in
spike heels. Ah there are signs all
around if you will only look.
In connection with the dances
Mrs. Lynne Boyle Forrester, the
charming young dancing teacher in
town, has agreed to help Betty
Moore with them. With all of the
grand! cooperation that the chairmen
of the committees have received,
thus there is no doubt that this
year’s May Day will be the best
yet. May 6 is the day—it’s not
too far off!
