W. T. Bost Addresses
Colton English Club
Talks on "Writing" Friday
Night of Book
Mr. W. T. Bost, reporter for
the Greensboro Daily News and
other dally papers and also a
prominent citizen of Kiileigh,
spoke to the Colton English
Club on Friday evening. No
vember 18, on “Writing.”
“Newspaper writing is not
literature” said Mr. Bost “but
it is concerned with the events
of the day and not always with
the truth of the d.ay. There is
a great difference in writing
facts and in writing the truth.
Literature in a democracy is al
most an untried thing.”
Mr. Bost said, “a good book
is a good friend and a library is
a collection of good friends. A
good thing about a library is
that a person can go in and se
lect his friends. If he desired
romance and chivalry he will
read Scott, if he wishes to know
about the spiritual world he
will read Dante, and for all
forms of knowledge he will find
no better book than the Bible.
“This,” said the speaker, “is a
library in itself.”
“The Bible is the greatest
style book for use in wi'iting,”
he stated. He said that read
ing must precede writing.
Furthermore he said, “the great
listeners make the great writ
ers and when we become a lis
tening nation we will become a
writinff nation.”
Faculty "Take-Offs"
Benefit Library
In response to the urge to sat
isfy intense curiosity aroused
by the appearance of myste
rious posters about the campus,
quite a group of students and
faculty members attended, on
Saturday night, November TO, a
program of a tyi^e not qiiite
original, yet always interesting,
an impersonation of several
members of the faculty. It was
difficult to Judge by the actions
of the audience, which group
was most amused, faculty or
students. Practically all the
parts were very well done, how
ever, if one may judge by the
reactions of the audience.
The entertainjnent w a s
planned and sponsored by the
library assistants as a part of
the annual celebration of Book
Week. The proceeds are to go
for the purpose of starting; a
r^tal' collection in the library.!

Faculty Trio Renders
First Recital of Year
The second in the series of
faculty concerts to be presented
this year was given by the Mere
dith Trio, Monday evening,
November 21, at 8:15 o’clock in
the college auditorium. The
trio is composed of Miss Char
lotte Armstrong, violinist; Miss
AlverdaRosel, ’cellist; and Miss
Aileen McMillan, pianist. A
delightful program of variety
and beauty was rendered to the
large and appreciative audience
M'hicli attended the concert.
“Trio in D Major” by Haydn,
including tlie Allegro, Adagio,
and Allegro, ma dolce move
ments, displayed the lucidity,
perfect '.finish, and animation
which characterize Haydn’s
works; and the artistic manner
in which the trio rendered the
number made it doubly enjoy
able to the hearers.
“Trio in E Flat Major,” opus
1, by Beethoven was made up
of three movements also. Alle
gro, Adagio Cantabile, and Fin
ale Presto.
The last group was made up
of compositions of a type en
tirely different from those of
Haydn and Beethoven, some of
them being by contemporary
conjposers. “Nina,” by Pergo-
lese-Kreisler, an' arrangement
of an old Italiaii love song, pos
sessed sim]olicity of style and
yet was rich in emotionalism.
“Valse Triste” by Sibelius
proved to be one of the favorites

One of the fastest, hardest
games of the entire hockey sea-
so.n was played Tuesday after
noon by the Juniors and Sen
iors. This was the last game
of the season and was won by
the Juniors who had to put up
a good fight to get their 4-1
victory over the fighting Sen
iors. Some of the best defense
work of the season was seen in
the playing of “Speck” Harris
and “Kat” Hawkins for the
Seniors and Katherine Davis
and Ruth McCoury for the Ju
niors. At the forward lines,
Pat Abernethy, Helen Bennett,
Vara Lee Thornton, and Mar
tha Davis played a good game
—with Thornton scoring 2 of
her team’s 4 goals. The Juniors
by right of their win have the
championship of the season and
gain possession of the hockey
loving cup for this year. This
makes the third trophy now in
the possession of the Junior
Student Government

TJic members of the Student
Government Association were
hostesses on Tuesday of last
week when they entertained
the students of Meredith and
their friends at a carnival in

ground. Colored streamers
flowed from the top of the au
ditorium, thus giving a very
unique appearance. Of course,
confetti was thrown in great
masses and everyone, in a very

Twig Reporter Eavesdrops on “Romancers”
I was unseen and unheard
but did I see and hear! What
about Freshman play ? That’s
all right. When 8:30.o’clock,
December 3, comes you want to
be there and see for yourself.
Ann Bradsher and Kathleen
Johnson have the leads as the
“Romancers” — Sylvette and
Perdliet. They plot against
their fathers, who overhear
them in the garden and wlio
make some plots of their own.
These are none other tlian An
nie Mao Taylor as Pasquinet,
Sylvette’s father, and Susan
Emma Sloan as Bergomin the
father of Percinet! Supposedly
they’re mortal enemies, but real
ly they’re the best of friends.
To aid the young lovers they
plan an abduction. The lovers
find later that tliis is false. The
fathers fall out. Here conies a
strange reversal out of all tliese
complications in plot and—but
I mustn’t spoil it by telling all
the secrets. There are lots of
good points I haven’t even men
tioned. You couldn’t miss see
ing Katy Sams—alias the bravo
Strafarel,. and Martha Ann
Riley as Blaise, the gardener.
