December 19 Set For
Christmas Pageant
Again we see the simple scenes
depicting the birth of Christ, and
once more we will hear the fami

annual Christmas pageant is pre
sented in Gaither Chapel on Sun
day evening, December 19.

Christmas Play Is
Viewed From Backstage
Looking' at the poster advertis
ing the Dramatics Club play
“Christmas for Cinderella” they
remarked, “I guess I’ll go. It
doesn’t cost anything and it is
lomething different.”
Behind this remark hides a time
of frantic, worried or sublimely
nconscious looks on the faces of
the cast, etc.
It began with the first practices
linus books, which brought blank
looks and blanker minds. When
the lines got better, props ap-

Santa And Sophs
Plan Party For All
Santa Claus and his helpers,
the Sophomore class, will be at
Anderson Auditorium Saturday
night, December 19, to deliver
presents to the Montreat College

the seventh, and the “angels” have
since been performing good deeds
for their “mortals.”
The Sophomores want to keep
most of their plans a secret, but
hey have admitted that there’ll

Old Legend Inspires
Consecration Service
Once, a long time ago, a very
good king celebrated his birth
day. All his servants were invited
to a feast in honor of the occas
ion; and to show their stainless
'oyalty and devotion to him, they
all brought white gifts — the
symbol of purity and love.
This old legend was the basis for
the inspiring consecration service
held at vesper time last night. In
T, we were challenged to bring
our bodies, minds, and wills, as
the perfect token of the birthday
of our King — Jesus Christ.
Choir And Glee Club
