The darkies from Coon Towm were
visitors in the Non Hall Thursday
afternoon, March 1. While there they
performed a wedding for the bene
fit of the society. Preceding the
wedding march, Susan Josephine and
Jeremiah Bridges gave a reading en
titled, “Kentucky Philosophy.” As the
w'edding march pealed forth in soft
strains, the bridal party took their
respective places in the formation at
the altar and an aged, gray-haired
minister entered from his study.
The bride entered on the aim of
her father, w-earing a veil of dotted
.Swiss curtain—an heirloom from her
mother—caught with a cluster of
dandelions as it extended from her
dusky brow in lovely folds. The
couple, happily married, left hurried

A new note was stnick in the key
of .spirituality by the B. S. U. Coun
cil in the meeting, February 19.
Throughout the whole meeting wa.s
clearly felt the influence of the won
derful work of Dr. Lyons and Dr.
Perkis, as it was manifested in the
deepening of spirituality in the
hearts of those present.
This was felt in the brief talk
given by Rachel Chaffin on I’ersonal
Work. She mentioned the help .she
had received from Dr. I’erkis in a
conference with him. She stated that,
she had an entirely new conception
of personal work after the ray of
light given by him.
Mr. Owen spoke a few words ex
pressing his hopes for the success of
the prayer groups organized among
the students. He suggested the plan
of keeping record of all amswered
Miss Pierce took up the .subject
where Mr. Owen ended. She en
couraged prayer groups and te.stified
to their worth to students which she
henself had witnessed many times.
The cmstomary reports from the
various organizations were very' en
couraging. The Council rejoiced with
the B. Y. P. U. president over their
increa.sing membership. Mr. Patrick
gave a fine rexwrt of the personal
service carried on by the minister.s
with a new spirit and a new enthu
siasm. Indeed, Dr. Lyons and his
associates have started a new and
great spirit in the campus organi
zations, and God's Spirit seems to be
working among the individuals as
