QUEENS-CHICORA COLLEGE, CHARLOTTE, N. C., OCTOBER 9, 1931
Rebecca McClary Elected To Fill
Position at Student Meeting
Former Officer Does Not Return
Miss Rebecca McClary of
Georgetown, S. C., was elected
by the students to fill the office
of treasurer of the student council
for the year 1931 - 1932. The
election was held Thursday, Sep
tember 24, in chapel. The presi
dent of the council, Miss Mar
garet Lillard, presided over the
student body meeting. Miss Ruth
Currie was also nominated for
the position. She ran against
Miss McClary in a close race.
Miss McClary is a member of
the Sophomore Class, and has
shown herself to be a leader in
various activities of the college.
Miss Helen Rector was elected
treasurer in the spring election
of the present officers. She, how
ever, did not return this year, so
it was necessary to elect someone
to fill the office.
The officers of the Council are
Margaret Lillard, president; Mar
garet Johanson, vice-president;
Nell Whitworth, secretary; and
Rebecca McClary, treasurer.
Three of the officers of the
German Club, elected at the end
of last year, failed to return to
college this fall. Consequently,
the club held a meeting on Thurs
day, September 23, to fill all of the
offices except the presidency.
Frances Kornegay, president, was
the only officer back.
June Tweed was elected vice-
president, Katie Belle McLean,
secretary and treasurer, and Helen
Fishburne, social chairman.
The j^ear’s activities have
already started for the club and
new members will be taken in
Interest Increases in
Typing and Short-
Short-hand and Typewriting
are popular on the campus this
year. Miss Thelma Stone is the
teacher. These subjects were
given at Queens-Chicora for the
first time in the year ’30-’31. This
year there are twelve taking type
writing and ten taking short
hand. The enrollment is not com
pleted as yet. Who knows ?
Queens may turn out some first
class stenographers before long.

To the Freshmen and New
We dedicate this our first issue
of the Queens Blues.
The first student body meet
ing was held at 6:30 Monday
night, October 5, in the Chapel.
After the president had called
the meeting to order, the secre
tary called the roll.
Several important announce
ments were made. Due to the
loss of sums of money and pieces
of clothing from the dormitories,
the laundresses will be forbidden
access to the halls starting Mon
day, October 12. The clothes
bundles are to be taken to the
infirmary at the same time that
the other laundry is sent out. The
negresses will be at the infirm
ary and will take out washing
from there. This laundry will be
returned on Friday, to the in
firmary. Ruth Beaty and Ruth
Currie will have charge of the
laundry bills this year.
Notice was also called to the
fact that the Special Car that
comes here for the students on
Sunday has been only half-filled
lately. The students are supposed
to use this car, instead of the
Myers Park car.
Miss Blair read the new student
government pledge card aloud and
explained it. In addition, her talk
was very interesting, in connec
tion with her explanation.
During the first two hours of
study hall, members of the Council
took the girls in groups over to
Burwell Hall where they signed
these pledge cards in Pi Delta
Hall. The cards read :
“As a member of the Student
Body of Queens-Chicora College,
I do hereby promise to uphold the
standards and high moral chai-
acter of the College.
If I violate or see another vio
late any rule concerning lying,
cheating, stealing, night riding, or
smoking, or if I see any miscon
duct that would in any way re
flect upon the good name of the
College, I will report myself or
that person to a member of the
ING COMES TO
Much Indecision on Part of
Every sorority girl was notic-
ably in a good humor after the
close of rushing. Having to talk
until they were blue in the face
about every subject on earth in
cluding the one nearest to the
girl’s own heart was a wearing
occupation. This year especially,
one could not help noticing that
the new girls were so at sea.
Looking back over their entrance
days, the old girls could sympa
thize with them in the predica
ment that they were in, trying
to decide with what group they
would be happiest with.
Pan Hellenic put some new
rushing rules into effect this year
and these were everlasting by be
ing brought into discussion.
iWithout meaning to disobey rules,
older girls in trying to make the
new ones feel at home would slip
over the line sometimes. Course
things like that aren’t really
crimes, but rather hard on the
other girls and it is hoped that in
the future that everyone will
watch themselves in what they do
and try to do as they would want
others to do.
Written pledges were given out
Saturday after two days of very
hard “silence” and many were the
sighs of relief that went up as
the various ones wrote “I accept"
on the card of their choosing.

Queens-Chicora opened this year
with an enrollment of three hun
dred and thirty-eight girls. The
number is unusually large, con
sidering the financial depression ;
and the college officials are start
ing off the year’s work very much
encouraged. Of the three hun
dred and thirty-eight, one hun
dred and ninety-two are boarders
and a hundred and forty-four are
day students. There are one hun
dred and ten Freshmen, ninety-
one Sophomores, fifty-one Juniors,
sixty-one Seniors, and twenty-
five irregular students.
More girls are from North Car
olina than from any other state.

Eight Girls perform Household
Eight seniors who are taking
the Home Economics Course are
now occupying the Practice
House. Since the twenty-fourth
of September they have been en
gaged in the usual Modern Home
Fraining Course which lasts six
weeks. During this time the girls
who work in pairs perform all the
duties necessary for excellent
lousekeepers. There are four im-
]3ortant duties: the managers per
form the important task of plan
ning well balanced meals: the
waitresses serve the meals and
take care of the dining room and
butlers’ pantry; the chefs prepare
the food, and the housekeepers
see that the room, porch, and
vard are kept clean and attrac
tive. At present Katie Belle Mc
Lean and Rupert Perry are the
managers. Janie Bob and Kath
leen Gaston are the waitresses.
Elizabeth Thompson and Sarah
Spratt are the chefs, and Miriam
Dameron and Fanny Martin are
Once a week guests are invited
to dinner. A complete table is
set and everything is carried out
perfectly under the supervision of
the managers who preside as
hosts. The best of etiquette is
employed in entertaining guests.
So far the work has progressed
nicely. The best of meals have
been served every day within a
limited budget. One can visit the
house .at anytime and find it
orderly and attractive. Around
the middle of October a new set
of girls will begin this same
course and continue it until the
eighteenth of December.
