“A SCRAP OF PAPER”
GIVEN BY ASTROS
IS HUGE SUCCESS
Onr collo4,^e coiiinuiiiity ami friends had
the privilege of seeing the animal [jkiy pre
sented by the Asti’otekton Literary Society,
8aturhiy, April S. This year tho title, A
iScmp of Pajier was suggestive of the many
(nifovesenii funny sitiiatio'ns hvongiit about by
an auuizingly sniall piece of note paper. The
play, while of a droll outer atmosphere, had
yet a well developed action and plot, both of
wliieh were well portrayed and directed. Per-
liaps the outstanding impression left on our
minds was the fitness of each character to the
parts. We were unable to think of anyone
else for the rule than the one who played it.
Out of this very reason grows the lack of abili
ty to criticize or laud one before another.
‘‘Louie’’ !llays upheld her traditional n'le
jf stage hero to perfection, while the fair
“Dick” with natural grace and ease needs no
comments. “A’’ Lowe’s dry wit was never seen
to a better advaulage, while Luis Kwudriok
(illle. Zenobie) and “Whit” rowel) were
enough to make J’luto himself erack bis sides.
Ann Jiliza has so mastered the art of ‘‘mak
ing up’’ that all her friends! were completely
taken by surprise when they learned the truth.
She diil well as dil all of the east, both in
clear speaking anti naturalness. “A great
success,” said one of the faculty, who ex
pressed aptly the sentiments of all.
MRS. MAUD DOZIER
!J[rs. Dozier is the oldest in ]ioint of scf-
vice of all our !Merclith representatives in
ttie foreign mission field. She graduated
1002 and has since hcon in .lapau. She ha?
recently returned to this country on a fur
lough and spent the day at her college home.
At the chapel exercises she gave us some
points on Japan and tho work of the mission
aries in that section of the foreign field.
She contradicted the jirevalent opinion that
Japan has become a Chvistiau nation. The
women arc mere slaves, many of the official
and educated classes arc antagonistic to Chris
tianity so that most of tho converts arc of the
lower classes- The coiTutry is not yet saved
aiul the need for workers is urgent.
MEREDITH Y. W. C. A.
'I'he Xorth ('arolimt (’abinet Training
(')juncil of the Young Womens’ Christian As
sociation met at Salem (.'ollege, Winston-Sa
lem, JCarch 31 to April 2.
Students from six diil'erent colleges gath
ered togetlier to discuss with the secretaries
of the South Atlantic Field, problems in
which the Y. W, C. A. is vitally interested.
The theme of the Council was ‘‘The Wliole-
ness of Christianity.”
Perhaps the most important of the discus
sions was that on “Christian Citizenshi]).’*
This was based on the “Social Ideals of tlie
('liureir' as adopted by the Federal Council
of the Churches of Clirist in America in IftlO.
TTnder tln'sc came all social problems such as
child labor, women in indutsry—hours of
work, wages, etc. 'Phis discussion was led by
iliss Katherine Lumpkin.
Other questions studied were the National
liudgot, Student Industrial Cooperation and
other issues to be taken up at the National
'’onvention which meets at Hot Sprinks, Ark..
April 20-27. 'riie leaders for tliese were
ilisses Clark and Leonard.

MISS IDEN SPEAKS
ON NEWSPAPER WORK
The College authorities are atlem])ting to
have a series of lectures at the chapel sev-
viees which will help the students to decide
on their life work and to do away with the
feeling that teaching is the only oeeu]>ation
open to a college! graduate. ].ast Friday
Hiorning iliss Susan Tden, city editor of Ihe
Hdlc'ujli 'rimes gave us an informal talk on
newspaper work. Slie acquainted us with the
make-up of a ]>apcr, tho personnel, and the
duties of tho various editors and reporters.
!Miss Tdcu cited sonic of the women in North
Carolina who arc niaking good at newspaper
work. Sirs. Caldwell of the Chorlolle Oh-
n(‘n'cr, is the pioneer of our state, “rJut,” said
■JFiss Iden, “all jieoidc arc not fitted for news
paper work.” One must have health, sym
pathy and a sense of luuuor. The greatest
joy that comes fron\ newspaiier work is not
tho pecuniary reward uor the fame, but the
feeling that one is aiding in the foundation
of public opinion, which in the end is the
most powerful of all forces.

lowing day. She also showed thorough un
derstanding of all the work she interpreted.
In the ninubers whicii called for brilliancy
her scale )>assages were particularly clear and
bright. Her tt'chnique was fine.
'I'he stage f-r bnth occasions was decorated
with banks of ])alm and baskets of roses, sweet
]>eas and sna)) dragons.
'Miss Paley’s program was as follows:

was the sweetness and clearness of her pianis
simo tones. This was es]>ecially noticeable
