Madison County Bond
Rally Success
Captain Eddie Rickenback-
er's stirring address amply re
warded the many persons who
defied snowy weather in order
to be present at the Madison
County Fourth War Loan Bond
rally held in the college audi
torium Saturday morning,
February 12.
An audience of nearly 1,000
heard Capt. Rickenbacker tell
of his adventures while travel
ing 160,000 miles visiting wen-
fronts. Capt. Rickenbacker paid
tribute to the gallant Russians
—both civilians and soldiers
—who -tre making such great
sacrifices.
He said, "We have got to
get along with the Russians for
the good of the world."
In speaking of the final vic
tory, Capt. Rickenbacker re
marked, "We shall win, but
there will be a million homes
saddened and many more war
loan drives before we do."
The program was opened
with the invocation by Dr.
Moore, and included patriotic
numbers by the college band
and glee club, a tableau, and
a reading given by Evelyn
Brookshire.
Bond sales following the pro
gram amounted to $31,000. In
every way the rally was a
success.

Laurel Gossip
The rumor factory is hard at
work again. Con you guess
what about? I'll contribute my
bit toward keeping the wheels
of gossip turning! There's a
certain large book published
annually on the campus
termed The Laurel. Its arrival
is preceded by many whisper
ings in dark corners and ques
tions asked openly. Almost all
the contents of the annual ore
kept secret until the students
anxiously peep between the
covers at the last of school.
Now I laiow the secrets, but
I refuse to tell all. Quit your
begging because you'll just
have to wait. Anyway, Bill told
me that Dot had told him that
Jane had told her that they
were going to have pictures of
couples in the annual again
this year. All right, couples, we
know that you're glad, but
beware of the poses that these
wary photographers catch
you in.
Well, folks, there's a war on.
The Laurel is capitulating valu
able space this year because
of it. Hence, the students' pic
tures were taken in groups.
They can't fuss, either, because
the faculty were treated the
same way.
The annual is very informal
this year. Just how informal
you can judge by the way that
this article is being written.
Wait until you see the picture
of ... I Oh, I forgot that is
one of those secrets.
The two boys' societies each
picked girls from their respec
tive sister societies to sponsor
them in the annual. That
makes up our beauty section
for this issue. Oh, those
beauties. Yep, there's . . .,
there I go again. I forgot my
self that the names of these
beautiful Nons and Clios are
secret. The things that I've seen
that will be revealed to you at
the last of school are just too

Dr. Blackwell To
Deliver Opening
Sermon
On February 27, the annual
Youth Revival of Mars Hill will
begin. Dr. Hoyt Blackwell will
preach the opening sermon at
the Sunday morning service.
Services will continue Sunday
night and throughout the fol
lowing week in the complete
charge of the students.
Every morning during the
week, the chapel messages
will be brought by two student
speakers. Each evening at
7:30 there will be a service in
the church also conducted by
a student. The morning classes
will be shortened to give more
time for the chapel periods.
Each person will hove a
chance to participate in the
revival through attending the
meetings and through prayer
services. These short, informal
prayer services will be held
nightly at 10:30 p. m. on the
halls of all dormitories.
In past years the revival
has perhaps done more than
any other one factor to keep
alive the true Christian spirit
on our campus. This year, as
always, the success of the
revival depends entirely upon
the efforts and prayers of the
students. Let us accept and
support wholeheartedly the
challenge it presents.
