Such favorites as "Carry me back to Old Virginny," "Maggie," "Be lieve Me if All Those Endearing Young Charms," "Drink to Me Only With Thine Kyes," "Swing Low Sweet Chariot," and others brought fourth round after round of applause. A chalk walk, by Miss L. Pearl Saunders of Jackson and Nashville, Tenn., head of the Junaluska summer school of Art, was an interesting feature of the program and contrib uted to the success of the entertain ment. Miss Mary Uouthitt, as pianist, won praise for her splendid work.
