The music demons are at it. The

trombone were not stilled by a sum

of the autumn leaves to again vex
and worry those who cannot play an
instrument. If Mrs. Robinson can get
an orchestra out of that bunch she
deserves the silver-plated footstool.

The field trips are also of vast im

There are times when it is best to
be heard and not seen. Don’t ask.
If all go to Milligan who says they
are going there will be enough to be
quite a group to yell and sing the

no one has to ask who won after the

We wonder if all freshmen are born
homesick or do they get that way af

Ways to succeed—
1. Never wear a tie at meals, then
you’ll know you are independent and
can’t be overlorded.
2. Never study your lessons; of
course the profs will realize that you
have a brilliant mind and will pass
3. Don’t go to chapel; then every
one will realize that you are an in
dividual and not one of the mass.
4. Be sure to wear suspenders even
if they make sore places on your
shoulders; then they can all see how
collegiate you are.
5. Always pick a fight with a man
bigger than you are; then he’ll know
you’re not afraid of him.
6. Never answer the roll call; then
the teacher will know that you are too
interested and individual to do so.
7. Always break in when others are
talking; then they will know that you
know something about it too.

PACK SQUARE ASHEVILLE
By Robert Quillen
My Dear Louise:
You will be ready for college next
year and I have been making a few
inquiries in the hope of finding a
school that will do you more good
So far I haven’t succeeded.
All of the schools for young wo
men in this section of the country are
equipped to teach you as much as
you need to know, but not one of
them seems to know the value of lib
All of them seem rather proud of
their “restrictions.” A freshman isn’t
permitted to walk down town by him
self; she may go shopping but once a
week and then must be chaperoned;
she isn’t permitted to use a telephone
while down town; she may have a
“date” only once each week and then
must sit in a room with other girls
who have callers; she may not talk to
a boy while she 'is on the street.
These are samples. Different
schools have different rules, some rea
sonable and some foolish, and all of
them relax discipline after the first.
I don’t mean to imply that rules
like these would harm you—if you
obeyed them. But foolish rules aren’t
obeyed and that makes them bad med
icine for growing girls.
The female of the species loves
liberty no less than the male, and
when girls are enslaved by petty
rules they become sneaks. They be
come expert in the art of hoodwink
ing authority, and they develop the
belief that sin consists in being

they are punished for doing some
harmless thing that is “wrong” only
because a college rule forbids it, they
develop an inevitable contempt for
rule makers and learn to hate autho
I think it a bad scheme and I don’t
want you mixed up in it.
If I couldn’t trust you out of my
sight without a chaperone, I wouldn’t
waste the money to educate you.
Some restrictions are necessary, for
girls of your age aren’t overburdened
with good judgment and might run
wild if turned loose without a hobble.
But I won’t send you to a college
whose foolish rules develop sneaks,
and if I can’t find one with more lib
eral ideas than a reform school. I’ll
keep you at home and send you up
each morning on the bus.
I’d like to give you taste of “col
lege life,” but I have taught you to
love liberty and be worthy of it and I
won’t have my work spoiled by well-
meaning people who think character
is developed by means of chains.
No doubt you are glad to know that
I have returned ft’bm my vacation.
But whether you are or not, I am. I

Of more than passing interest was
the unveiling, Sunday, October 6th,
at Fletcher, N. C., of a bronze tablet,
mounted on a shaft of granite, to
the memory of H. Frank Arnold, the
orchestrator of “Dixie,” the popular
song of the Southland. This song
was played for the first time at the
inauguration of Jefferson Davis as
president of the Confederacy, Febru
ary 18, 1861, at Montgomery, Ala.
Some time ago a teacher—a much
loved teacher — digressed from the
lesson long enough to tell an inter
esting little incident about a foreign-
tramp who called at her house. The
story was told with a view to point
ing out peculiarities, or interesting
little variations, of different lang
uages. For instance, when the tramp
went to chop some wood — unusual
for a tramp?—^he remarked that “the
axe she dull.” Whereupon it was evi
dent at once that the word axe, in
that foreigner’s own particular lang
uage, was feminine gender.
But for another cause this story is
This particular tramp, as you notic
ed above, was chopping wood; and,
according to the story, he was not
ordered to chop wood as payment for
a meal, but, upon seeing a pile of
wood awaiting the axe, himself in
sisted upon chopping a supply to pay
for his dinner. The author of this
article felt a lump in his throat as
this little story was told; for a time
was when he also was a tramp, and
chopped, not one but many piles of
wood for as many dinners—and no
ticed, like his honest contemporary,
that “the axe she dull”—^refraining,
however, from embarrassing the own
er by reminding him of the fact.
To the average person the word
“tramp” carries with it an atmos
phere somewhat of repugnance. Syn
onymous in our minds with the word
“tramp” is lack of ambition, laziness,
slothfulness. We hold in contempt a
fellow who would rather beg than
