Like Their Job
By Jane Brown
After much chasing here and
there and into many blind alleys,
1 finally cornered four of the house
presidents. Nellie Ann Barrow was
the first one I ran into as she was
coming from hearing Rev. Goodson.
Graciously she ushered me into her
room in Sisters’ still exclaiming
over the fact that someone wished
to interview her.
Nellie Ann likes to do anything
and everything, but sports are
really her pet. “I just love them
all and right now 1 am real hep
on bop.” Bop is the newest fad
around Sisters’. She loves being a
“house mother”. “They’re not a
hit of trouble.”
A home economics major, Nellie
Ann has been known to everyone
on campus as freshman class presi
dent and is very prominent in such
organizations as the “Y”, I. R. C.
and Home Economics Club.

me, along with the cockroaches, in
South. She loves to knit, but still
doesn’t, seem to be able to finish
that pair of argyles started last
year. Her favorite pastimes ?—
“Music and going away on week
ends”, she told me all in the same
Camps and Swims
This past summer, Martha worked
at a camp and also received her
Life Saver’s Badge. “She also got
the instructor along with the
badge”, piped in her roommate.
Martha was a member of the
Student Council last year and is a
member of the I. R. S. and Sights
and Insights Staff. Her parting
words were, “My pet peeve still is
and will be going to the Carolina-
Washington and Lee game and
“I’m from the country, but don’t
you think my accent has changed
since my visit to New York this
summer?” This was from Carolyn
Watlington who thinks Strong
beats all the dorms thus far but
feels that maybe she shouldn’t even
comment on it.

I walked over to Bill Woesten-
diek and asked him if he wore
tennis shoes for any particular
reason. He explained that his part
was athletic in places, and he wore
the shoes to prevent any falls. The
other night at practice, the scene in
rehearsal was one in which Bill
swings a witch by her feet and
hands. He almost dropped her
twice, losing'his balance in the at-
fiempt to land her on her feet.
Hence, the tennis shoes.

“We are glad to note that the cir

“All right, everyone in place for
the general store scene,” called
Miss Reigner. I watched the scene
progress to the point where John
Spinks lifts a barrel of apples. He
strained as he lifted the barrel
slowdy off the floor. The muscles
in his arms tightened, and his face
turned red. With obvious effort
he got the barrel waist high, then
slowly put it down.
“Better do that again,” said Miss
Reigner. And not only did John
do it once again, but four times.
I asked him later if it wasn’t a
little tiring to do this scene so
“Not really,” he replied. “You
see, the barrel is empty. It just
looks like it’s full of apples.”
With that, T left Old Chapel to
