Science Club in the lecture room,
January 12, the following program
was given: “A Rhymed Outline of
Medical History,” by Andrew Ches-
son; “Scientific Current Events,” by
Sarah Hamrick; “The Medical
School,” by Mr. Wood; and “The
Medical Course and Practise,” by
Mr. Trentham. Plans for sponsoring
an illustrated lecture to be given by
a member of the Enka Corporation
in the near future were discussed
and voted upon. After the discus
sion of other business the club ad
journed to meet next month.
The George Washington Bicenten
nial Commission is seeking to open
every avenue of expression in nation
wide celebration of the two hun
dredth anniversary of the Birth of
George Washington. Many are its
activities, so that the people of this
nation may find ways in which to
express their appreciation of the
heritage left them by the greatest of
Americans. Among the avenues
opened to all the schools, public, pri
vate, and parochial, is the oratorical
contest for the institutions of high
er learning. A student from every
college throughout the United States
will have an opportunity to write
and deliver his conclusions from his
study of George Washington in a
state contest. The commission will
present the official George Washing
ton Commemoi*ative Medal to each
state winner in this contest.
The North Carolina State contest
will be held at Raleigh on February
22. In addition to the prize which
is given by the George Washington
Bicentennial Commission, the Amer
ican Legion of North Carolina is of
fering cash awards to the winners in
the contest, the prizes being as fol
lows: first place, $75; second place,
$50; third place, $25; and fourth
place, $15.
Mars Hill is making plans to send
a representative to Raleigh to enter
this contest, which is to be held on
the two hundredth birthday of George
Washington. All students wishing to
enter orations in this contest will
meet in an elimination contest here
on Tuesday, January 26. The con
testant winning first place here will
of course, go to Raleigh to represent
Mars Hill there.
This contest is open to both young
women and young men. The follow
ing have signified their intention of
entering the preliminary contest
here: Walter Cole, D. L. Steward,
Sarah Fox, Donnie Hudson, Tom
Moore, and Ben Cox. The subject
for the orations is: “Washington,
Citizen and Patriot.”
Seniors Would Com
plete Svsdmining Pool
At a meeting last Wednesday
morning, after the regular chapel
Service, the members of the Sen
ior class voted to make a gift of
their room deposits to the college
for a fund toward completing the
swimming pool in the basement of
the Gymnasium. The president
of the class, S. Marion Justice,
was authorized to appoint a com
mittee to solicit the signatures of
the seniors making this donation.
The town students will also give
to the fund sums as near the
equivalent of the five dollar room
deposit as possible. The final to
tal of the amount will be an
nounced at commencement, when
the senior class will present its
gift.
B. Y. P. U. members are now look
ing forward to two all important
dates. The first is February 1-5.
This week will be the week of the
annual study course. Every B. Y.
P. U. on the campus will take part,
and every one is working to be 100
per cent. The faculty to teach these
courses has not been completely
worked out, but Mr. James A. Ivey,
former state secretary will be here:
Miss Winnie Rickett (“Racket!”),
the young woman loved by every B.
Y. P. U. member who knows her, is
coming; Miss Mabel Starns, who was
with us a few months ago, will be
here again. Mr. Owen will proba
bly come out from Asheville and
teach; Mr. Wood has consented to
teach; Mr. Stringfield has promised
to teach; and Mr. Moore will teach.
Some of the books to be taught are:
“Investments in Christian Living,”
“Advanced Leadership,” “Manual-
General Organization,” “Pilgp*im’s
Progress for B. Y. P. U,” “Training
in Church Membership,” and “South
ern Baptists Working Together.” An
other book which will be selected lat
er will be entered into the course.
The course is somewhat changed from
last year’s with several new books
added.
Those who do not attend B. Y. P.
U. are not only invited to attend one
of these classes but urged to attend.
If any one is not interested in meth
ods, then he may take the book “In
vestments in Christian Living,” or
some book that is not a method
course. But every one is urged to
come—100 per cent.
On January 26 the courses will be
presented in chapel, where a surprise
awaits all. Every one should be pre
pared on this day to select the course
he wishes to take.
The second important date will be
in the spring when the Regional
Convention meets in Franklin. The
department hopes that a large num
ber will attend. Delegations will be
unlimited. All should start now and
save enough, “cash” to attend. A
round trip ticket will px'obably not
cost over $2.50.
Along with this second important
date should be added April 16. B.
Y. P. U. receptions will be held on
that date. Those once having at
tended one of these receptions will
look forward to the next.
New Officers Elected
On January 10 newly elected of
ficers took charge of the work for the
coming quarter. With a new spirit
and a new zeal, ah’eady manifested
by these new officers, it is expected
that the department will reach even
a higher goal. The officers are as
follows:
Presidents — Robert Richardson,
Clara Stover, Truitt Rhyne, Gertrude
Blaylock, Luther Hawkins, Roy Bry
ant, Carl Rogers, John McGehee,
Franklin Wilkins, Mary McLean;

Misses Pierce and
Rutherford Enter
tain Juniors
Complimenting the popular young
debutants of Mars Hill, Miss Ella
J. Pierce and Miss Beth Rutherford
entertained with a delightful affair
Monday evening, January 4. A strik
ing color scheme of “green” was
evident, attractively displayed by
the Cl’s adding a lovely touch to the
gift packages which happened to be
absent.
The guests were attired in various
and sundry fashions typical of camp
us life. A delightful course of iced
“spice of life” was served.
Last Tuesday evening the nine
members of the International Rela
tions Club met in the teachers’ par
lors of Spilman for an informative
program of current events and top
ics on present-day Italy. In the ab
sence of Dean I. N. Carr, the meet
ing was conducted throughout by the
president, Bruce Grainger. The
club was glad to have as a guest Miss
Beth Rutherford, whose interest in
its activities has been of advantage
during the work of the fall semester.
After the roll call, answered by
current events, Robert Burnett led a
discussion of the government of Italy,
after which Ruth Moore gave a col
and customs. Comments on famous
cities and places of interest in Italy
were made by Ray Gibbs. Madge
Myers acted as English critic for the
program.
The girls of the I. R. C. have been
offered the radio in Spilman each
Thursday evening at 6:30 for the
talks on topics of international in
terest broadcasted from New York
at that time. After the business ses
sion, the club adjourned until Feb
ruary, when new members will be
elected from those eligible after the
first semester examinations.
