WOMEN DO GOOD WORK
Determination Is the Root of All Good
Ambition—Hers Was to See
On Wednesday, March 31, Mrs. Lulu
Loveland Shepard, of Salt Lake City,
Utah, made an address in Chapel on
“Citizenship.” Mrs. Shepard stated that
her interest in woman’s rights as citizens
had first been aroused by an impressive
address on “Woman Suffrage”, which
she once heard Susan B. Anthoy give in
Utah. “Mrs. Anthony, she said, “saw
the power of men and women working
together. “Ever since,” she continued, “I
have been making talks on woman’s suf
frage and citizenship.”
Mrs. Shepard next related some inter
esting experiences she had in Utah. She
saw boys and girls there get drunk on
intoxicating drinks that were allowed to
be sold at public saloons and bars. After
much difficulty, she and a group of wom
en succeeded in having the saloons
“You can do anything if you have de
termination,” declared Mrs. Shepard.
She stated further that she had fulfilled
one of her greatest ambitions in seeing
the “Passion Play.” This she declared
to be the most marvelous production she
has ever seen. She was impressed by the
fact that in the little German village of
where Oberamergau where the play is
given every ten years, a murder or any
kind of crime is practically unknown.
In closing, Mrs. Shepard urged us not
to break laws. Today all nations look
to the United States as the most power
ful nation on earth. “When the U. S.
becomes unable to enforce her laws, how
ever, she will become weak.”

Miss Ward Talks to Journalism
II on the History of Govern
ment and Industries.
“Canada is a country of the future.
Its possibilities are absolutely un
scratched,” Miss Florence Ward, a Nova
Scotian by adoption, told the Journalism
class Wednesday afternoon, March 31.
Miss Ward divulged some very inter
esting facts about the government, his
tory, industries, and schools of Canada.
Their confederation was organized in
1605 by the British North American Act,
dividing the country into 8 provinces.
The Maritime provinces are the most im
portant. The king of England is ac
cepted as the general head of the coun
try, however, they practically have their
independence. A Governor-General ap
pointed by the King serves as the gen
eral head, assisted by the Prime Minis
ter, a Governor of each Province and a
The Provinces abound in all mineral
wealth. Pulp is made out of the tim

Each province has its own educational
requirements, Ontario having the best
organized system. A co-educational uni
versity is located in each province.

Edmund Turner played a stellar role
in the Third Dramatic Institute at
Chapel Hill. His posters and miniature
stages were the focus of admiring eyes.
Members of the class in Dramatics I
are trying out for parts in George Ade’s
“Just Out of College,” the play origi
nally planned for the Senior Class. The
June Seniors are still looking for a class
play. They will perhaps give the come
dy farce, “The Whole Town’s Talking,”
by John Emerson and Anita Loos.
Members of the cast of Ruth Heath’s
“Masks Off” are proudly displaying their
play programs autographed by Freder
ick H. Koch, the originator of the Caro
lina Folk Plays. Ruth Heath is wear
ing a gold pin, presented to her by the
Dramatic Association for excellence in
play-writing. The pin is a comedy mask
through which runs a dagger, represent
ing tragedy. The whole is surrounded by
a wreath of laurel. At the base of the
pin are the letters C. D. A. which stand
for the Carolina Dramatic Association.
The latest addition to the collection in
“The Workshop” is a miniature stage by
Floyd Mills and Joe Marley—the first
scene, second act of “The Poor Nut.”
Recent visitors to “The Workshop”
who played roles in former dramatic pro
ductions were “Liz” Darling, Martha

“I think this is the original Garden
of Eden for it combines everything that
was ever written about California and
Florida—all in one place”, writes Mrs.
Ben Williams from the Canal Zone where
she and her husband are living. Mr.
Williams was principal of Mclver School
In spite of the American occupation,
Mrs. W'illiams says that the old world
atmosphere still clings to the place; and
the two Spanish cities, one at either end
of the Canal, retain their customs and
traditions of days gone by. There are
bazaars of India, China, Hindu, and Jap
an where one may barter for linens and
“The Canal Zone is entirely American
—everything and everybody is owned by
the government. Our homes are assigned
to us and preference is given for length
of service, so by the time those who built
the canal twenty-five years ago get
what’s coming to them there isn’t much
left for the newcomer.” However, Mrs.
Williams declared that they had a com
fortable, cool house with a porch ex
tending around all four sides, and sur
rounded by flowers and shrubs. The
rooms are large and have ceilings fifteen
feet high. The partitions, between rooms
do not reach the ceiling, but leave three
feet open so that air can circulate freely.
The streets in Panama are narrow and
are filled with cats and dogs and chil
dren, with peddlers crying and bells ring
ing. Mrs. WTlliams says, “You drive on
the left hand side of the street and are
fined twenty-five dollars if you run over
a dog and have to give way to horses,
donkeys, and ox carts; so it takes head-
work to drive.”

Monday afternoon, March 29, at 3:45
a children’s program was given on the
front mezzanine of Meyer’s Department
store. The participants, with one or two

direction of Helena Troxell. The first
number was a piano selection, “Dance

Surprise , by John A. Payne. Succeed
ing this was “Flower Song” on the vio
lin by Margaret Moser, and the “Crafty
Crocodile”, by Mary Elizabeth Moore.
After the “Fumbling Acrobat” by Mary
Catherine Carter, came one of the most
attractive features of the entire pro
gram, the dancing of the Charleston
which was performed by Clarabelle
Koontz, Lois Moffitt, and Margaret Mc
Lean. This was followed by a recita
tion “Susannah’s Sunday Clothes” given
by Susan Gregory. Miss Nancy Little,
of N. C. C. W., wrote the poem especially
for this occasion. Helena Troxell played
an interesting piano selection “Passpied”.

erine Reid, Mary Catherine Carter, Mi
riam Mason, Margaret Thompson, Mary
Elizabeth Moore, Mildred Spencer, Mary
Elizabeth Champion, Lucille Hinton,
Colum Schenck, Suzanne Ketchum, and
