Missionary Entertains Students
She is gray-haired and very
charming, with a wonderful sense of
humor. Her name ? Elizabeth
Estes Turner, one of the most inter
esting assembly speakers Saint
Mary’s has ever heard.
M'iss Turner, a missionary, after
working in China for twelve years
is now with the Student Volunteer
Movement in this country. She
chuckled, “I just switch around from
place to place, visiting college cam
puses all over the country.”
Miss Turner’s home in the United
States is St. Albans, W. Va.; her
home in China is Hwaiyuan. She
attended West Virginia University,
the Biblical Seminary in New York,
and the Yenching College of Chinese
Studies. After studying Chinese
for a year in Peking, kfiss Turner
took up her work as a rural evange
list. She is very anxious to return
to this work because, as she says, “I
love the Chinese, and I’m quite an
expert now in the use of chopsticks!”
When we asked Miss Turner how
she liked teaching the Chinese stu
dents, she replied, “I enjoy it very
much because the Chinese are eager
to learn, and are crazy for anything
American. Then, too, they don’t
have much opportunity to see beauty
and enjoy it when it is shown to
Miss Turner told us gaily that her
hobby is people, but her pet peeve
is indifference in people. Her favor
ite sport is, oddly enough, riding the
Staten Island ferry in New York,
and her favorite person (who, she
says, is “going around the world”
with the missionaries) is the main
character of the current broadway
play, Harvey—a large white rab
She summed up beautifully her
life’s ambitions by saying, “If you
do not value a thing yourself, do not
share it with others. If Christianity
is of no value to us, we need not
share it, but if it means anything
in our lives, we must share it.”
Jitterbug Contest Will Be Fea
ture of Evening
A Halloween parly, given by
the junior class tonight from 8
until 9:45 p. irr. in the gymnasium,
will entertain the faculty and stu
dents of Saint Mary’s. Fortune-
telling and apple-bobbing will be
traditional entertainments and a
jitterbug contest will be a high
light of the evening.
-\aney Hannah, Greenville, and
Sally Ann Borthwick, Win.ston-
Salem, will sing; Joan Hassler,
Thoniasville, will entertain with
imitations. Jean Strickland, Wil
son, and Elizabeth Myatt, Golds
boro, have irrepared an original
Y arious booths will be set up
in the gymnasium for amusement.
Their particular thrills are still
secret, but the entertainment com
mittee promises a surprise in each.
A prize will be given for the
most original costume. There will
be refreshments—in abundance,
Josephine Hojd, Washington, and
Anita Buck, Jacksonville Beach,
Fla., chairmen of the refreshment
committee, announced.
