The annual Senior Day
began this morning with an
early morning hike up
Bailey. Those seniors who
enjoy a good mountain climb
met on Spilman porch at
8:30. The seniors who did
not feel equal to the climb
went to the Cascades for an
hour of games before the
climbers joined them for a
picnic lunch. After lunch the
class prophecy was read.
Frances Pope is chairman
for Senior Day. Mr. and
Mrs. McLeod, class sponsors,
have taken part in all of the
activities, of the day which
will come to a climax tonight
when the seniors are hon
ored with a banquet given
by the junior class.
Glee Club Presents
Program
The glee club presented
excerpts from Pergolesi’s
Stabat Mater last Wednes
day morning at the chapel
hour. The music has been
traditionally, used during
Lent, the words being in
Latin. Between numbers
Miss Fisher read English
translations. The following
selections were sung: “Quan-
do Corpus Mori?tur,” glee
club; duet “Inflammatus et
Accensus,” Miss Fisher and
Margaret Hoyle; “0 Tuam
Tristis et Afflicta,” glee
club; duet “Quis Est Homo
Qui Non Fleret,” Miss Fish
er and Margaret Hoyle, and
Was Fac Ut Ardeat Cor
Meum.”
The program opened and
closed with the singing of
the hymn, “Dear Lord and
Father of Mankind.”
Spanish-American
Theme Used
That eagerly - awaited
Junior-Senior banquet day
finally arrived! For the
C-IPs it was also Senior Day,
a day climaxed in the eve
ning by a banquet at 7:30
p. m. in the Oscar E. Sams
dining hall.
It has always been the cus
tom of the class to have a
special theme for the ban
quet. This year, owing to the
fact that the United States
is loking toward South
American countries with in
creased interest and good
will, the theme was Spanish
American.
The dining hall was deco
rated to resemble a Span
ish cafe’ complete with Span
ish effects ranging in im
portance from Gauchos and
Caballeros to sombreros and
tangos.
Campus
Visitors
Lt. George Buchanan, a
student here last year, re
