One of the more difficult tasks of an
Editor is that of choosing the new Staff
members, because in doing so, some ex
cellent Staff material must always be eli
minated. We bad SO many good entries,
and we sincerely wish that we could have
chosen all of you. Thank you so much for
Memorial To Mrs. Dixon
A service of dignity, reverence, and
simplicity was that held at Montreat, N.
C., Friday, September 4, at 4 p. m.
The Crosby Adams Fine Arts Building,
a cherished monument of the expressions
of a people for music and the school, was
again the scene of a beautiful memorial
ceremony. A room was dedicated to the
memory of Mrs. Alice Hall Dixon, a mem
ber of the original building committee.
Miss Evelyn Jackson of Atlanta, Ga.,
committee chairman, called the meeting to
order and introduced Dr. J. Rupert Mc
Gregor, who conducted the program.
Dr. McGregor opened the program with
prayer and delivered the principal ad
dress. Miss Mirta Borges of the Montreat
College faculty rendered an inspiring
solo, “Bless This House.” A portrait of
Mrs. Dixon was unveiled by her daugh
ter, Miss Anne Dixon of Bejmont. A
bound book of letters of appreciation of
Mrs. Dixon written by her many friends
was placed in the room, and a lovely
plaque bearing her name was attached
to the door of the room.
The ceremonies closed with the singing
of Mrs. Dixon’s favorite hymn, “Blest
be the Tie That Binds.”
The memory of the beloved member
ot the building committee will always be
cherished when her friends, loved ones
and those to follow in succeeding genera
tions—those who appreciate and value fine
art and music-enter the Crosby Adams
Fine Arts Building.
Congratulations to Frances Davis and

Sponsor, and every member of the Staff

guidance and inspiration. Although we
