' NEW SHRUBS
Inhabitants of Moore Dormi-
ory are proud of the beautifica-

dds a completing touch to the
urroundings. Thanks to the exe
cutors of the project!
“That which we always look for
and never can get
We are always wanting and ex
pecting it yet.”
Our expectations for television
are beginning to formulate into
actuality. As speaker for the
board of directors of the Radio
Manufacturers association, Sarnoff
announced that “Television in the
home is now technically feasible
and factory production of receiv
ers for home use will begin next
April. Sets will sell for $150 to
$1,000, and show 7 inch by 9 inch
pictures.” Virtually everyone is
concerned with this newest won
der of the times.
No doubt having moving pic
tures with sound effects and in
color and conveying the sensa
tions of smell and feeling will
have as great an effect on Amer
ican industries as did the auto
mobile on the horse. This new in
vention will most likely be the
center of the social and intellec
tual lives of people. Since it will
play such an important role in
national and international rela
tions, in politics, in education, and
in the home itself, it is necessary
to decide whether it will be con
trolled by the government. In
Frank Waldrop and Joseph Bor-
kin’s book. Television, it actually
discusses the development and
outgrowths of radio as a whole.
Every page is filled with a clash
ing of wits.
You can read the book in a
short while and you’ll always be
glad you gave it a trial.
An anniversary celebration dif
ferent from any they have here

Art Class Moves Into New Quarters
With Added Membership And Interest
President T. L. Cashwell pre
sided over a meeting of the C-I
class Saturday morning, Novem
ber 5, in which Bill Daniels was
elected treasurer; Harold Spain-
hour, pianist; Mary Louise How
ell, chorister; and Miss Elizabeth
Ellison and Mr. P. C. Stringfield,
sponsors.
This election completed the list
of officers of the class as only
President Cashwell, Vice-President
Pete Merrill, and Secretary Kath
ryn Perkinson were elected at the
first meeting of the year.
This year the students of the
art class have been assigned a
new location for their Art Studio,
a big seven-window room on the
second floor of Treat building.
Formerly, the Art Studio was in
room seven of the Administration
building, but the inconveniences
suffered by the meeting of other
classes in the studio caused the
department to seek a new loca
tion.
The spacious room, with its
seven windows, affords an un
usually good view of the campus
and the athletic field, and an in
spiring and panoramic view of
Bailey mountain. It has been said,
and appropriately enough, “that
every windowpane retains a po
tential picture”.
Recently the art department
was presented with a picture of
which they are rightly proud. It
is a notable watercolor painting,
“Jersey Farm,” by Harry Leith-
Ross, of New Hope, Pensylvania,
who had previously exhibited it
in art galleries in New York. Mr.
Leith-Ross is an outstanding
painter and teacher of art, and
at one time taught Miss Beulah
Bowden, our art instructor. He
was recognized in the June, 1938,
issue of Art Instruction magazine,
which carried his picture, repro
ductions of a few of his paintings,
and a brief biographical sketch of
him.
Bill Ballard, an outstanding
student of the art class, recently
achieved recognition when he
entered some of his drawings in
his home-county fair where he
took first prize. In the recent
