Speech Departments The Division of Fine Arts is favored with an unusually brilliant assemblage of in- structors whose ability in their particular field qualifies them not only to teach their subject but to obtain individual honors in it. John Wray Young, Jr., instructor of dramatics, is probably even better known to those outside the college walls for his work as director of the Shreveport Little Theatre. Any student of Art is familiar with the work of Don Brown, whose ex- hibitions have won praise from leading artists and critics in the United States and Europe. The excellence of the Music De- partment is known not only through the individual honors received by instructors Martini, Squires, and Rolston but through the outstanding performances given by the choral groups and soloists they have trained. This year is the probationary period for the Music Department, which is seeking admission in the American Schools of Music Association and the staff is endeavoring to fulfill all the require- ments set by this organization, with em- inent success to date. A music library has been built up by this group, and more courses than ever before are being of- fered, including instruction in the playing of brass, reed, woodwind, string and vari- ous other instruments. Through the participation of the art stu- dents in giving exhibitions of their own work, the music students in recitals and special performances in nearby towns, and the dramatic students in Little Theatre and radio plays, the outstanding work of these departments is becoming better known and it is more and more effectively serving the cause of liberal education. A duo of duos, under the direction of Professor Squires, make a very charming arrangement, both ot the piece and ot themselves. Prospective or merely hopeful young artists watch with interest as Don Brown demonstrates the correct technique in painting a portrait. Ernest Rolston, Director of Music, received his A. B. from Pennsyl- vania State College and his B. M. from the Cadek Conservatory of Music. Since that time he has spent eight years studying voice with Oscar Steagle in New York and has done graduate work in arts at Louisiana State University.
