The BELLES OF SAINT MARY’S Junior-Senior Tomorrow Vol. II, No. 15 RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA April 28, 1939 ALL IN READINESS After cutting crepe paper, drawing “rainy” figures, ducks, and daffodils, collecting umbrellas, and the final banging of everything in general, the Juniors hope to finish in time to have their hair set for the biggest dance of the year. When the refreshments and orches tra committees have completed their preparations, the rest will be up to the pages and the “hoped-for” dates. The pages have been chosen by a committee headed by Cornelia Clark. They, in addition to all the Juniors and other underclassmen volunteers, have helped deco rate and plan for the occasion. And they, for reward, will be allowed to attend the dance. Expectations for a grand time are running higher than ever. And why not? With a good orchestra and plenty of punch (orangeade and ginger ale!) nothing can go wrong THREE ONE-ACT PLAYS PRESENTED TUESDAY NIGHT Tuesday night, in the Auditorium, the Expression Department and Dramatic Club, under the supervision of Miss Florence Davis, presented three one-act plays. The first play, Castle of Mr. Simpson, by John Kirk patrick, dealt with a young girl who was highly indig nant with her other sisters because they always ar ranged to have father “called out” for them when their dates arrived; however, when her own friend called to see her, she willingly allowed father to be “called out”. The father was Billie Hose; mother, Cornelia Clark; daughters, Betty Bell, Carolyn Norton, and Julia Booker; and the “dates,” Phyllis Gatling, Mary Virginia Harrison, all gave creditable performances. Julia Booker and Carolyn Norton were particularly good Pink and Patches, the second play, by Margaret Bland, was the story of a little mountaineer girl who all her life had dreamed of a “floaty pink dress.” When she receives a dress from the “summer lady” it is brown, as have been all those before it. The young girl was played by Louise Coleman; Rexie, her brother. Dot Watt; Ma, Emma Lou Scales; Mrs. Allen, the summer lady, Mary Frances Ifallenbeck. In her role as Ma, Emma Lou Scales did an exceptionally fine piece of work. Special recommendation goes to the third play, Culbin Sands, a choric drama by Dr. Gordon Bottomley. This I)lay, competing against four other colleges, was pre sented at Chapel Hill several weeks ago in the annual Carolina Dramatic Association State Tournament, and won first place. I'hc choruses in the i>lay personified the winds; Betty Bell, Alary Elizabeth Nash, Carolyn Norton, Cornelia Clark, Sue Harwood, Ann Baker, and Billie Rose; and the trees: Julia Booker, Phyllis Gat ling, Mary Kistler, Elvira Cheatham, Alary Guy Boyd, Louise Coleman, and symbolized, by means of voices in unison or semi-chorus and dance movements. The witches helped to create the atmosphere. The leading roles were taken by Louise Wilson ai dlie Lady, Kin- niard’s wife, and Joyce Powell, as Alison Brodie. Theresa Anderson read the Prologue.

GYM NOTES Although Saint Alary’s did not compete as a school at Play Day in Chapel Hill, the following points will give some idea of how our participants came out : Mary Gault and her partner won the badminton finals; she was captain of the winning team in water volley ball, and she placed second in the free-style 90- yard dash. The first girl won by two seconds. Grace Thompson lost her regular tennis match, but was asked to play an exhibition match later in the afternoon. Lamar Spencer and Virginia Trotter played volley ball. Teeny Montgomery, Lucy Pittenger, and Virginia Trotter swam in the novelty games. It was a wonderful opportunity for the girls to swim in the beautiful pool. * ♦ The Sigma volley ball team is composed of: Yeats, Gordon, Curtis, Hooff, Pittenger, Thompson, P., Wooten, Va.
