the Good Ship “Society." Passports
having been presented in advance to
the guests, the sails were hoisted
promptly at eight o’clock, and the
Good Ship “Society” glided out upon
a calm, peaceful sea, whose waters
sparkled and gleamed In the silvery
light of a full moon.
Sailor lads. In their spotless white
uniforms, very courteously escorted
the guests to the long, commodious
saloon, where they were greeted by
Miss Geneva Benthall, president of the
Astrotekton Society; Miss Emily
Cheek, president of the Philaretian
Society, and the members of the two
societies. Here the guests were intro
duced to their companions: chatted
gaily for a while; or promenaded
on deck according to their fancy. An
orchestra from the city furnished de
lightful music during the whole voy
Suddenly the dinner gong sounded,
and the dining salon doors were
throw open. The guests were seated
at small tables, having at the head of
each an old girl as hostess. A three
course dinner was served, accompanied
by iced champagne (ginger ale), by
very efficient waitresses, neatly
dressed in black with dainty white
caps and aprons. Miss Lorena Helms
very capably served as head waitress.
During the meal, the sailor lads
kindly entertained with songs and
dances typical of the sea, but were
rudely interrupted by the entrance of
fierce and bloody pirates, attired in the
brilliant, barbaric manner of the aea-
roamers of olden days. However, after
several chill-producing songs and
dances, they left with signs of friend
ship, returning later with a huge, cap
tured treasure chest, containing bags
of silver, which they generously dis
tributed among the guests.
Other features of the evening’s en
tertainment were A Roinance in Song
by three famous singers, and a song of
the sea by one of the sailor lads. Mr.
Perry Morgan, B. Y. P. U. Secretary
for the State and a special guest for
the evening, gave a very appropriate
and much-applauded toast. Among the
other distinguished guests were Dr.
and Mrs. Brewer, Mr. Frank Leavell,
of Memphis, Tenn.; Miss Winnie
Rickett, State Junior-Intermediate B.
Y. P. U. leader: Mrs. Perry Morgan,
and members of the faculty.
The decorations and refreshments
carried out a pleasing color scheme of
lavendar, white and gold—a combina
tion of the “Phi” colors, lavender and
white, and of the “Astro” colors, gold
and white. Softly shaded lamps, to
gether with the harmonious music of
the orchestra, the fragrance of the
flowers, and the brightly-colored

WELCOMED GUEST AT
DELIVERS SEVERAL INSPIRING
ADDRESSES DURING SHORT
(Continued on page three)
We are very fortunate to have had
Mr. Frank H. Leavell, Executive Sec
retary of the Inter-Board Commission
of the Southern Baptist Convention,
here on our campus for three days,
Sept. 18-21. He has lived in the dor
mitory, has been with us in the din
ing hall, and has entered Into our
school life as only one who under
stands students can. On Saturday
morning at chapel, he spoke to us on
Keeping the Spiritual Apace With the
The B. S. U. Council had a confer
ence with him at 1:30 on Saturday
afternoon, at which time a review was
made of the work up-to-date. Mr.
Leavell was .very encouraging. He
says he finds no problems confronting
us—that the thing to do is to keep on
doing. We have a more delinite idea
of the work before us In the depart
ments we now have, and thus are able
to make plans for the future along the
line of Sunday school work.
The clear dawn of Sunday morning
gave promise of a calm and beautiful
day. At 7:30 a group of about fifty
girls gathered in the oak grove for
morning watch. Mr. Leavell, using
the passage from John 14: “Peace I
leave with you; my peace I give unto
you: not as the world giveth, give I
unto you. Let not your heart be
troubled, neither let it be afraid,"
brought us the message of peace in
our lives each day. The life that is
calm, that is peaceful, the life that
is confident in the Liord is the one
which Is able to help another. A beau
tiful feeling of quiet strength came to
us as we sat at the foot of those
majestic trees, with the sunlight be
ginning to filter through the leaves,
and realized that nature, too, was
bringing us the message of peace.
At Pullen Memorial Baptist Church,
at the eleven o’clock service, Mr.
Leavell spoke on Tlxc Student of To
day: His Stand for Ood.
The climax of the day came at ves
pers Sunday evening. The devotional
was conducted by Mary Frances Big-
gers who read Psalm 19, after which
Dr. Brewer led in prayer., Dorothy
Turlington very beautifully sang
"Pass It On.” Following this, Mr.
Leavell spoke on The Essentials in
Building a Successful Christian Life.
The first thing necessary in building
a Christian life is to have a plan.
How few students know definitely
what they are going to do after re
ceiving & diploma. It is while we are
in school that we so much need a plan,
an end toward which to direct our
studies. After a plan, one needs prac
tice, even as an organist must go
through with the tedious exercises if
she wishes to attain true success. But

FIRST meeting OF

(iCESTION OF ItlRMINGHAitl CON-
The first meeting of the B. Y. P. U.’s
of Meredith College was held Wednes
day night at 6:45 in the chapel. This
meeting was one of great interest and
enthusiasm, there being some $00
girls present. After the devotional,
which was led 'by Annie Belle Noel,
Mary Asque. general president of
Meredith B. Y. P. U.’s, in a few well
chosen words, welcomed both old and
new girls, and urged that they all take
part in the work this year. Follow
ing this. Mary Frances Biggers gave
those present a brief sketch of the
All Southern Baptist Student’s Confer
ence which is to meet at Birmingham
October 28-31. and insisted that as
many of the Meredith girls as possible
make their plans to attend this stu
dent conference. Next, the presidents
of each union were introduced and
they extended to the new girls a cor
dial welcome and invitation to join
their union. After the benediction the
girls dispersed, each girl finding her
way to the union she wished to join.
So often do we hear the expression,
“The Faculty cannot make the school,”
that the student body, at Meredith at
least, often is prone to put before the
public eye its own activities and omit
our faculty members entirely. In
order to do ourselves justice, we must
state that it is not through lack of
respect or admiration for our respec
tive eachers that leads us to make this
error; only the busy life of college
students, coupled ^vith a tiny spark of
selfishness, which demands that self
be considered first, others second.
Therefore, It dawned upon the mem-
bers of this official organ of the stu
dent body that a complete list of the
faculty of Meredith College might Be

CLEVER STUNTS AND “GOOD
EATS” MAKES FOR BIG SUCCESS
(Continued on page three)
With a crackle and a sputter, a
huge bonfire, east of the dormitories,
lured both old and new girls out of
doors the first Saturday evening of the
new year where they were to enjoy
an informal reception given by the
B, S. U. and S. G. Association. Little
tricks-of introduction were tried with
the serving of fruit punch, each old
girl being asked to escort the girl next
to her to the punch bowl.
Each dormitory presented a Stunt
revealing quite cleverly the spirit of
that particular building. Dormitory
A rendered a little skit, a parody on
Hail, Hail, the Gang’s All Here. B
was represented by Lena and Cynthia
Weinberry in a song. Ruth Lilley led
a snappy song of welcome for Dormi
tory C, and rendered two clever little
jingles. One was especially good.
“Dormitory A, Dormitory B, Dormi
Change them around and you will see
They spell clearly BAD,”
D pulled 3ome snappy collego yells,
which added the needed pep.
The party then went to the audi
torium to enjoy an extraordinary pro
gram presented by world famous ar
tists. The B. S. U. President, Mary
Frances Biggers, as official announcer,
presented first Monsieur Chevrolet de
Coupe, a celebrated organist. He
rendered a pleasing number. His
technic was marvelous. By gently
tugging the pigtails of five unbobbed
damsels, various and sundry tones
were evoked which resulted in an un

The official announcer then pre

a pianist of great renown. Miss Helntz
was granddaughter of the great Beeth
oven. She has given fifty-seven famous
successes here in America, She will
soon begin a tour of Europe during
which she expects to give an equal
number of recitals. Miss Helntz has
the extraordinary talent of combining
the classical with the jazz. Each se
