College Varsity
Do you give humorous read

itate Garbo, tap dance with
your front teeth, or turn flips on
one hand? If so, we want
you ... 'n' you ... 'n' you
to try out for the college var
sity show. You need not do
anything as involved as those
mentioned above; a few piano
renditions and other novel acts
we welcome.
Well, you see, it's like

formances have always been
reserved for professional en

In the past week the outlook
for the allies in the far Pacific
has noticeably improved. In
the Philippines t h e brave
troops of General MacArthur
hove withstood repeated mass
attacks by the enemy. It is es
timated that at least two hun
dred thousand Japanese troops
are now facing MacArthur.
The enemy has landed troops
near Australia in the Island of
New Guinea and others near
by. In the Macassar Strait be
tween Borneo and Celebes,
part of the Dutch East Indies,
at least thirty Japanese ships
have been sunk, including an
aircraft carrier, and several
other naval vessels vital for
the Japanese control of the sea
lanes. In the Malaya peninsula
the armies of Great Britain and
Japan seem to be deadlocked
in the intense jungle of Malaya
about sixty miles above Singa
In Libya the British are being
joiced back very swiftly by
General Rommel and his axis

Forensic Council To
Enter Tournaments
The members of the Mars
Hill Forensic Council will enter
several intercollegiate tourna
ments during the month of
The first tournament will be
held at Appalachian State at
Boone, North Carolina, Febru
ary 5-7. Both men and women
will participate, but in separate
divisions. There will be direct
clash debating and regular
oratory, extempore or im
promptu, and after - dinner
speakings. Since few junior
colleges enter this tournament,
our debaters will have to com
pete with many of the leading
senior college teams.
The second tournament they
enter is the annual Smoky
Mountain Men's at Tusculum
College, Greenville, Tennessee,
on February 14. This is a very
excellent tournament with
twelve or fourteen teams and
the usual events. On the some
date is the Smoky Mountain
Women's Tourney at Virginia
Interment, Bristol, Virginia.
Poetry reading will be another
feature of the program.
Another important event on
the fourteenth will be the state
convention at Greensboro, in
which Edith Floyd, vice-presi
dent of the Young Republicans
Club of North Carolina, wil

Musical Programs
Feature College
Listen! Mors Hill is on the
air! Yes, every Monday night
at 8:00 o'clock, representatives
of our college give a musical
program. The first of this series
was rendered by Miss Mac
Millan, who played Fantosie-
Impromptu, by Chopin; then
that^ famous song of Schu
bert s. The Stars, arranged for
the piano by Guy Maier. Fol
lowing this was A Singing
Fountain, by Newmann. The
program was concluded by
that fantastic and almost eerie
selection. Etude In C Minor, by
Our most recent representa
tive was Mr. Sebren, who
played the following numbers,
accompanied by Miss Mac-

That junior college transfers
con and do come into positions
of leadership at senior colleges
is unmistakable. For instance,
Calvin Stringfield was the only
summa cum laude graduate at
Wake Forest in June of this
past year. All of which means
that for his entire stay at Wake
Forest Calvin has averaged
over ninety-five for his honors,
which, translated into your
language and mine means
"With highest praise." Being
summa cum laude at any col
lege is no mean feat as these
last exams have just shown,
because it means straight
"A's" all the way through.
Calvin, not content with ordi
nary grades, had to make his
in the Wake Medical School.
Eugene Brissie, who is Bob's
brother, has just finished a fine
piece of work on Wake Forest's
Old Gold and Black". Brissie
was the editor of the Hilltop
