Up and up and up! Right up to
the Phi Hall climbed Juniors and
Freshmen Saturday night. Soon as
they stepped in the door they began
to feel patriotic. All the lights were
decorated in red, white and blue.
George Washington himself, or a very
good picture of him, liung on the wall
over the platform and under lils pic
ture was a cherry tree. While it
wasn’t exactly the same one he cut
down with his “little hatchet” it was
much like it.
When a most amusing game had
been played and many new styles in
sweeping begun, all the Juniors were
given gold and black paper and five
plus. With the help of a Freshman
they tried to see who could make the
cutest, most becoming hat. There
were “high hats,’’_ wide luits, square
hats, long hats and many other kind
of hi'.tp. Biif. after llio grand march
the judges awarded the prizo to Pauline
Newton. Miss Laurence after a most
fitting speech presented the winner

Although the rain was pouring stead
ily, a number of our students went
down to the studio of WPTF, the Ra
leigh Radio Station, Wednesday night,
Pebruury 23, to participate in broad
casting a program of vocal and instru
mental music. Private cars came for
the girls at six thirty, and after all
were comfortably settled in the waiting
room of the studio, the program be
gan promptly at seven o'clock.
Much trepidation on Che part of the
soloists was prevalent until the pro
gram began. Then a calm settled
and the listeners, wiiile awaiting their
turn, enjoyed the numbers which the
others broadcasted.
The studio is composed of two beau-
tll’ul and comfortable rooms. Paint
ings hang upon the walls, while per
iod furniture is used as artistic and
tasteful decorations. The entire stu
dio is really delightful. The broad
casting room is enclosed by plate
glasH through which the performers
may be seen from the other room. A
radio extends from the broadcasting
to the waiting room, giving the abso
lute effect of the broadcast. It was
indeed interesting to note the differ-
erent voices, violin, and the piano over

Last week was Indeed a busy one
at Meredith for those interested in
religious work. Together with the
Sunday School study courses which
■were offered, the B. S. U’s of Mere
dith, Wake Forest, N. C. State Col
lege, N. C. C. W., U. oiT N. C„ and Camp
bell College held a joint council for
the purpose of discussing their va
rious problems, The council was held
chiefly for the officers of the B. S. U’s;
however all those interested in reli
gious work were invited to come. The
meetings were held in the Philaretlan
sooiety hall Thursday and Friday af
ternoons from 4:30 to 6:00 and in the
evenings of the same days from G:30
to 7:45.
It was an inspiration Just to have

Is in the lead with the lilgiiest per
cent. The per cent of this class for
the past Sunday was 90. All the re
ports are coming up and two other
classes passed hist Sunday, Mr. Moon-
cyliams class coming second and Mr.
Ferguson's class third.
fs it not terrible to think of four
classoa of Meredith ' girls having an
average below 70? When the group
captains got to work in the classes we
are certainly going to expect more.
Tile group leaders in Dr. Caviness'
class see every member on their group
personally during the week and this is
what really counts in the work.

NOTICE!
No doubt the readers ot Thk
Twici wondered how the Fresh
man Dutch Boy got on the front
page opposite George Washing
ton a few issues back, but it was
because George was drawn on
the back of a Freshman Stunt
program and when George went
to the Press, they sent the Dutch
boy too. Of course one remem
bers once that George was In
Dutch but that, wasn't the point
that we meant to make that
time.
Vague rumors have been drifting in
concerning the Astro play, which, we
arc told, is to bo given about March
the seventeenth. Next to initiation,
the Astro Play ranks highest In the
events of the society’s year and is
anticipated wilh oven more eagernoss
by a groat many of the students. Con-
.siderlng the characters Ihc girls carry
ing the little brown play books around,
one judge the President to be a genius
In the choice of talent. With such
talent and a play that is reputed to be
s|)lendld In itself, the event promises
to 1)6 something towards which we
may look forward with no uncertain
pleasure.
