Leap Year!
Good evening everybody! Ain’t
dis sumpthin’! Once more the ol’
dining hall gazes at a joyful
scene! Once more it bears the
din of many voices and conglom
eration of noises and what not!
And more it sniffs at the smells
wafted about in its spacious di
mensions — ah! Those smells!
Take a sniff! Nize, eh, what?
Hum ! Sniff again ! My, but does
that turkey mit stuffings smell
highly, yes?
Wait a minute! Look at Dr
Frazier! Look at that wicked
little jgrin of his! Hum! Bet his
grinnin’ ’cause he’s knows what’
rolls BUTTER
coming after the turkey! Fluh
He’s not the only one!
Oh girls! There’s Joe McEwen
—well, the Misses didn’t disap
point us after all — ’bout time
don’t you think ? Can’t say as we
blame her tho’ for wanting to
keep him out of circulation. Let's
hope he’ll gee enough good cook
ing tonight to last him for awhile.
Really, the Senors are too
quiet for words. Just a minute
and we’ll have Miss Jones run
down and pep them up a bit.
There she goes—ah! And there
they go ! Really, what a surprise.
You know that class has the
weakest lungs of any class ever
they never make any noise in
the dining hall.
Stop! The Dean has dropped
her horn and can’t make any
noise. Oh, there’s Mrs. Wilson
changing her trombone for the
Dean’s horn.
Be sure and get Miss Edwards
to sing that solemn song of her’s
oh, pardon me—she’s singing
it now—watch out!
Snicker, snicker! Ezel almost
spilt some good ol’ peas down
Miss Cathy’s neck and what
calamity that would have been.
/. Don’t the tables look pretty?
And aren’t the girls pretty? All
curls and powder and pretty
dresses—-my, what a sigh. But
have you noticed their faces?
No? Why, they just radiate!
Aren’t they all on edge to take off
to their various homes in the
morning? They are all anxious
I to reach their chosen destinations
j to await the coming of dear ol’
Saint Nick! And just what will
I he put in all their stockings?
jLet s hope that he ])uts bundles
of joy, happiness, peace, friend-
:jship, love and contentment.
I Ah! There is the Doctor in-
lyiting us over to the Xmas Tree
|m Burwell Hall! Don't forget!
JTake your noise makers with you
-everyone is needed.
And — before we say a last
Igoodbye, may we wish you the
iJiappiest of all Christmases and
most prosperous of all New
Excellent Program Planned By
Miss Starr
One of the prettiest of all the
concerts presented by the Choral
Club in the history of the school
was given at four o’clock on Sun
day afternoon. The college audi
torium was packed with the stu
dents and with people from out in
town. ^ Miss Starr had turned the
stage into a beautiful background
for the girls, who were all dressed
in white.
The program was composed of
an unusually large number of
selected Christmas carols and

The City of Charlotte.

My Dear Sir;
I have been informed that this
is the sepon of the year in which
it is fitting that I should advise
you as to what I deem necessary
that I should have at coming
This is the greatest present
that I could ask of you. I want
you to bring some sense for “my
deah children.” Surely you will
not fail at this needy hour, what
with examinations staring us in
the face.
Feeling sure you will comply
with my wishes and thanking you
in advance, I am yours.

things you can think of so that
I may loan them to other little
girls and boys. Please bring me
a telephone and a hot water bot
tle, and that’s all.
Good by,
Margaret Wilson.
Dearest Santa,
How are you? It’s certainally
been lonely around here and I’ve
been working so terrably hard.
I’m really tired. Bring me some
powder and rouge and perfume.
I d love to have some cook books
and some patterns—and I’d adore
a pretty little dolly.
Don’t forget all the other little
girls and boys.
Lots of love,
Maggie Collins.
My Dear Santa,
Well, it’s only a week till you’ll
be tearing down my chimney and
bringing me a few little presents,
maybe, yes ?
If you do perchance do that,
here’s one thing I would appre
date so much. You see, I need
a new ‘Biology H book. I gave
the girls a test the other day that
just went from one end of the
book to the other, and course I
can’t use it any more. Won’t you
look into this for me.
Would certainly appreciate it.
Heaps of affection,
Eloise Green.
Dear Santa Claus:
Please bring me a big pencil
box because I have learned to
write my name and lots of other
things. L would also like some
good story books: Mother Goose
Rhymes, The Bobsey Twins, and
Elsie Densmore are my favorites.
I don’t want to ask for too much
but if you can please leave me a
red beret and a scarf to match.
And don’t forget the nuts, fruit,
candy and my favorite lemon
With best wishes for a merry
Christmas, Sallie McLean.

The second group included two
solos, “Sleep of the Infant Child,”
by Margaret Lillard, and “Gloria
In Excelsis,” by Martha Frazer,
along with three carols, “Thou
My Jewel,” “They Who Seek,

carols, “Tenderly, My Babe,” and
“He is Sleeping in a Manger,” by
the Choral Club, and a solo by
Iris Bryson, “Rejoice Greatly, O
Daughter of Zion.”
Then came “The Flight Into
Egypt,” sung by Iris Bryson and
the Chorus. The last group was
made up of another solo by Miss
Bryson, “O Holy Night,” and two
carols. “Angels Singing O’er the
Plains” and “Silent Night,” by the
chorus. This last number was
especially beautiful, bringing to a
climax the whole program with
the appearance of a star in the
back of the stage. Then the girls
quietly went awa}^ still singing,
and the song faded out in the dis
Dear Santa,
I’ve been thinking of writing
you every day but I’ve just been
so busy. I hope you won’t slight
me any on account of the depres
I’ll tell you what to bring me

bottle of foot-balls the ones you
brought last year have kicked out.
And will you please bring me a
whole lot of other things like

cutters, and all the out landish
Dearest Santa Claus:
A jolly greeting to you, ole’
man. When you come clown our
chimney, be sure to take off your
gloves and get warm. The table
by the Christmas tree will be
large enough for the things we
want. A nice checker board, some
sparkles, fire crackers, a kaleido
scope, a box of nougats and two
framed pictures of Clark Gable
and Greta Garbo will be sufficient.
If you can’t bring us anything
else, don’t forget the pictures.
Good luck to you on your tour.
