Corn Huskin’ Rules Stated
By BETTY KING
Com Huskio’, one of the favorite
and most unusual traditions at Mere
dith, is planned for October 26. Be
cause of confusion in previous years,
it is necessary to present the rules
and restrictions of the event.
The first event will be the con
tinuous costumc parade across the
stage. The only stipulation will be
that all props must be carried in
the procession. Twelve, ten, and
eight points will be awarded to first,
second, and third place winners,
For one and one half minutes any
number of people may try their
talents at hog-calling. This contest,
giving five, three and one points,
will be judged on the ability to call
hogs, fifty per cent; originality,
twenty-five per cent; and most ap
propriate theme, twenty-five per
Definite Measures Taken
For Campus Coffeehouse
By LINDA BURROWS
Students at Meredith have long
wished for a place where they could
meet to talk in a relaxed atmosphere
and at the same time not worry
about transportation problems that
an off-campus location would in
volve. This year some definite steps
towards this goal have been taken,
for the idea of a campus coffee
house is already being discussed and
investigated by a large group of in
terested students. So far the idea is
only in the exploratory stages, but
it is already making definite head
A study committee, consisting of
the heads of the MCA, MRA, Phis,
Astros, and the Student Activities
Board, has been discussing and
investigating facilities, available ma
terials, costs, and ideas. Us first
step was to state its aim, proce
dure, and policy from which to work.
A visit was made by several stu
dents and Mr. Charles Parker, cam
pus minister, to the Bar Jonah, a
coffeehouse on the campus of North
Carolina State University.
The proposal for the coffeehouse
will be brought before the faculty
committee at its next meeting and
will require approval by President
E. Bruce Heilman and Dean Louise
Fleming before any further action
can be taken. The tentative plans
provide for the running of the cof
feehouse by the two societies. It will
be an all inclusive social center for
the campus, available for meetings
as well as a gathering where stu
dents may relax, bring their dates,
and enjoy entertainment. It is
planned that the coffeehouse will,
if approved, be open two nights a
week at first. More openings will be
determined by demand.
One person from each class will
exhibit her apple*bobbing skills,
providing she does not use her
hands. To win five, three, and one
points, she must bob ten apples from
the tub. A contestant will indicate
that she is finished by standing.
One ^rl from each class will have
three minutes to tell a tall tale. The
seven, five, and three points will be
given according to imagination and
originality, fifty per cent; presenta
tion, twenty-five; and relation to
theme, twenty-five per cent.
Originality, presentation, and
theme will each count thirty-three
per cent in class song competition.
Grades of ten, eight, and six points
will be awarded. All members of
each class participating in Com Hus>
kin’ must take part in the singing.
' The final event will be com hus
king, in which speed is important.
Two persons from each class will
compete. As in apple-bobbing, each
girl stands to indicate that she is
finished in order to win five, three,
and one points.
