to close school before the date an

It was given in the auditorium for
the benefit of all who wished to at

Mars Hill is a place where they make
men and women. Mars Hill girls, do
you realize that Mars Hill’s woman
hood is only your womanhood and my
womanhood? What your womanhood
is and what my womanhood is will
determine what Mars Hill’s woman
hood will be. Shall we make it
nobler? Cherish your visions, your
ideals, the beauty of your imagina
tions, the loveliness that drapes your
purest thoughts and give them to the
world that it may be enriched by
them. Do not seek facts alone to give
you a masterly knowledge of life;
learn from life itself, and you will
have a learning that will in the end
mean much to you. When I think,
that the womanhood of Mars Hill
College depends on us, I can scarcely
imagine that we would squander that
womanhood in useless extravagances
and unrighteous living. Let us look
around to see what we can do to con
tribute something to making Mars
Hill womanhood ever more noble and
more lovable than it is now:
1. As our lives touch those of the
boys’ there is often a word we can
speak, a look we can give that will
cause a boy to stop some ungentle-
2. Our- character and personality
find exiiression in the clothes we
wear. Let us make them all that true
beauty, .modesty, and culture could
3. We should turn to our Bibles
daily to complete the dress ,of a true
womanhood from that great source
of inward culture that will be certain
to find expression in our lives.
4. Through our little everyday
acts and deeds we may lead others to
5. One of womanhood’s great
charms is sympathy. May we not
smile and cheer and sympathize with
those who are downhearted?
6. In our hands we hold the power
of making the world more reverent]
toward God and toward higher, finer
things. May we exercise that power
at church and at public gatherings..
7. Our minds are wells of hidden
thoughts. May we do everything we
think of to make Mars Hill grsater
because of its womanhood, and the
world greater because of Mars Hill.
Mars Hill womanhood shall live on
in purified homes, in better school
systems, and finer communities. Macs
Hill womanhood shall live on in in-
Mars Hill Awakened
By Shrill Tootin’
In the Library
It happened Saturday afternoon,
December 1, about 2:00 o’clock. Mars
Hill, before the accident occurred,
was quiet and peaceful. A wonderful
setting, indeed, for the tragedy which
followed! Then, as a thunderbolt out
of a clear sky, a series of tootin’s
rent the air (Please don’t misunder
stand me. I mean that the tootin’s
of Tuten rent the air.) The campus
immediately became all ears. How
deathly still it was! Toots from the
direction of the library attractced
those who were passing. One of Mar’s
Hill’s “Balls of Smoke” was sent to
summon Mrs. Rampey, the librarian.
She arrived, innocent enough, and
unlocked the library. The sight there-
ni would have filled any man’s heart
with fantastic horrors never felt be
fore 1 There, almost in the jaws of
death from not enough air and more
than enough exertion, lay Senior
Tuten, of Furman University.
There is the news story, ladies and
gentlemen. Immediately following
this you shall be given the causes and
results, the why with and the what
for of the whole drama.
You see, it was just like this: Mr.
Tuten was visiting (friends?) in
Mars Hill He, as an innocent visitor,
went to the library to read some
beautiful lines from Shakespeare’s
Romeo and Juliet. (He was in urgent
need of the lines as it was then 2:00
The results were very destructive
to the library, as was learned after
the drastic affair was over. The re
ports are that, when Mr. Tuten dis
covered he was a prisoner, he un
leashed his temper in a heated fury
breaking the back of Caesar, defac
ing Cicero, abandoning Romeo and
Juliet, and completely annihilating
The Tale of Two Cities. A movement
is now under way to recorder for the
library these much needed volumes
there are in Mars Hill with that fatal
I would like to add that, in the
opniion of the writer, one should play
safe and leave the library 30 minutes
before closing time because Mrs.
Rampey is still on the war path.
