Text from Pages 1 - 42 of the 1926 volume:

THE SUN DIAL 3 grounds give abundant opportunity to live out of doorsg and the tennis courts, basket ball and volley ball courts, athletic field, the lake, and the numerous beautiful mountain trails give abundant opportunity for each girl to take the exercise she likes best. No one can come under the influ- ence of the lVIontreat teachers with- out being inspired by the high ideals constantly held up to them. The number of teachers in proportion to the number of pupils makes it possible for each pupil to receive individual attention from their instructors, not only in the classroom, but also in helping them to solve many of their individual problems. Montreat offers no small held from which a student may choose to equip herself for her life work. The Normal Department prepares girls to become efficient teachers, using only the best and most modern methods of instruc- tion. The Junior College course ap- peals to the student who wishes to go to some other school later and take her degree, or to one who wishes this work as a foundation for a course in which she intends to specialize. Courses in Home Economics, Stenog- raphy and Typewriting have been of- fered as electives in several courses. These studies widen our curriculum and meet the problem of the individ- ual differences. The student organizations furnish entertainment and develop initiative and self-reliance. Participation in student government, the literary soci- eties, Christian Endeavor, and the Christian Service Band gives training that prepares the girls for leadership in the communities in which they live. The most dominanting character- istics of our school, which some of the other schools lack, is the religious training. The students make the re- ligious activities a part of their daily life. They enter into them with zeal and earnestness, thus instilling into their hearts a truth which will guide them throughout life and a habit which is lacking in no educated, well developed, true citizen or Christian. A moral and religious standard is up- held by the student body, :ind they co-operate to keep it untainted and un- blemished. This phase of our school together with the others mentioned helps the student to aspire to better and nobler things and to live a richer. broader. and fuller life. THE STUDENTS' ORGANIZATION. On September Sth our school opened with an enrollment of IOO splendid girls and boys, all ready for work as evidenced by the look on their faces, and this readiness has been kept up all through the year. For the whole student body this has indeed been a happy year. VVe have worked and played together, and the fine Christian fellowship has meant much to all of us. The spirit of service and helpfulness has been predominant and we have grown closer to each other. As we come to the close of the year, we look back and think of those we selected to guide our Student Body during 1925-26, our Student Body officers. Elizabeth Hamilton, our president, has led us so lovingly and patiently that we have willingly followed her and given her our loyalty and co- operation. We give her a vote of thanks for a year of hard work in our behalf. Here's to Ida Luttrell, our vice- president. No matter what is needed, one can always count on Ida. Her laughter and cheering word have made the heart of many a girl lighter. Emilie Nliller, holding the office of secretary, has been most efficient. She is always interested in everyone and everything, and if she can help anyone she is happy to do so. She has a charm and a grace that we like, and has thrown all of her talents and natural ability into her work of help- ing to mke our school the best. Our treasurer has been Annie Sue Bost, and we couldn't have found a girl to perform the duties of that of- fice better than Annie Sue has done. Her suggestions are given at the most needed moment, and are just what everyone wanted but couldn't think of. She has the faculty of making people want to do the proper thing and when it comes to securing funds -well. Annie Sue is right there. Words are inadequate to express our appreciation of our Student Rody officers, for we know that theirs has been unselfish service to the school of schools, our llflontreat Normal. As we come to the close of our school year we look back over it and cherish the dear memories that time can never dim. "Now we come to the end of our happy year, Near the time for departing, too, But it leaves a thought that is big and strong, With a wish that is kind and true. For memory has painted this happy year With colors that never fade, And we find at the end a thought so dear- The thought of the friends We have madef' IN MEMORIAM During the past year Mon- treat has sustained a real loss in the death of Mrs. Thomas H. Gaither. For more than a year we had felt that her feet were touching the border of the City of God. and that soon she would pass through the valley of the shadow of death, and on Ar- mistice Day this beloved and honored friend passed away. Mrs. Gaither was a staunch friend of the Montreat Normal School. both in sympathy and gifts: she was persistently loyal and optimistic as to its future and was one of its most liberal benefactors. She manifested a personal interest in the individ- ual members of have helped to mold the life of many a young woman. She was a woman of singular grace and charm of manner and possessed in an unusual degree the gift of making and holding friends. Her charm of person- ality was balanced by rare judg- ment. She suffered none of the usual loss of enthusiasm of youth, but retained her attrac- tive vivacity to the end. We shall miss her shrewd com- ments. her merry dashes of humor, and the cheerfulness and optimism with which her life was filled. Her going has brought sorrow to our hearts, but our loss is Heaven's gain. "The iniirmities that come with the closing years Are but stepping stones that ma1'k the way Into the land of eternal youth." 4 THE SL' N DIAL THE MONTRE.-XT SLN DIAL Piilflisiird Erelizl Spring by the Students nf Jlontrrat Norma?

A happy, joyous vacation to each and every one! Editorial Life of Lee. RQBERT E. LEE The picture that is dearest to the people of the South is that of a straight, soldierly hgure seated on a gray horse. His firm-set mouth shows strength of character and determina- tiong his kindly eyes, with a touch of sadness, speak more than tongue can utter of unselfishness, sacrifice, and compassion for his people and for a lost cause. This man is Robert E. Lee. beloved and respected through- out the world, not only by men of his own party and opinion who fought and thought with him. but also by those most violently opposed to his views. It is natural that his own peo- ple should love and honor him as their leader in a struggle of intense bitter- ness, but that his enemies should share this regard and admiration is due solely to the man. His was a mag- nanimous nature which drew all men to him. S. L. XVOODXVARD DEDICJ TIOA7 .fs a f0d'f'lZ of our lotus and respect for .lIr. Ulood- zcarrl, who by his kindly llI2'llZi7ZiJf7'I1fi0ll, his interest in the Ziff' of ihe' SfllII6'I1fS 117112, his noble charzzrter, has icon his tray into etiwy heart. ici' II1Tf'Ffi071f1fF!j' flrrlirrztf fhix 'vol- umr of i'Thf S1171 Dial." Vvhen General Lee was. for the first time. in supreme command of a powerful army, it did not take the world long to discover that a great commander had been born. He soon acquired and held unbroken to the last "the entire confidence of his gov- ernment and the unquestioned and enthusiastic devotion of the army." His career as a soldier terminated at Appomattox on April the eighth, eighteen sixty-five. and across the many years there comes a picture in which we perceive the highest type of a military commander and the noblest conception of a Christian gen- tleman. As a soldier he was great, but the man himself was greater. No one Was ever simpler, truer or more hon- est. Never beat there a heart warmer or more kindly than that of Lee. It is said that some good is born of every evil, and if there is one consoling thought concerning the dark days of our civil war, it is the thought that they revealed Lee to the world. "He emerges from out the clouds and darkness of war victorious, although the leader of a lost cause. He plucked triumph from failure and wore de- feat as if it were a crown of laurel.'y lVIany men are great and good when at the height of their power, but to THE SUN DIAL 5 THE STAFF i this man was given the supreme test- defeat. He was indeed, "Caesar without his ambition, Frederick with- out his tyranny, Napoleon without his selfishness, and Washington without his reward." Such was our great hero, and as time goes on and we honor his mem- ory, may the life of this man inspire us to sound more clearly in our own lives the keynote of his life-duty. As a military leader, he was un- surpassed. President Roosevelt said on one occasion, "The world has never seen better soldiers than those who followed Leeg and their leader will undoubtedly rank as, without any ex- ception, the very greatest of all great captains that the English-speaking people have ever brought forth, and this, although the last chief of his antagonists may himself claim to stand as the full equal of lVIarlbor- ough and Wellington." The position which Lee occupied at the beginning of the war was unique and almost Without parallel in human history. His high reputation for military skill and knowledge was so marked, his per- sonal and professional character so pure, his mind so sound, his faithful- ness to every duty so well established, that both governments sought to ob- tain his services.

Witnesses: Chair-Table-Pen. SENIOR NORMAL CLASS PROPHECY After a careful glance at the spot- less white bed to see that my patient was a sleep, I sat down in an easy chair by the window and began to dream. To my great surprise, as I sat there in this dreamy mood a crystal ball appeared before my eyes. I could hardly perceive objects at first, but gradually they became more distinct and a strange scene met my eyes. On the main street of Green- wood was a ? ? shop. "Gilstrap Beauty Parlorl' the sign read! Where had I seen this name before? Oh, yes, Lillie Mae Gilstrap, who was an old classmate of mine at the lX'Iontreat Normal. Being thus interested in the name, I focused my eye piercingly on the ball. Sure enough, there stood Lillie lilac working faithfully over a seemingly young girl. The girl had coal black hair, a thin line of eye- brows, and an attractive but much painted face. VVhen Lillie INIae had finished with her, she said: "Now, Miss Bernice Calhoun, I think you'll look real bewitching at the dance to- night. It is amazing what a society lady you have made, and I wish to congratulate you on your engagement to Professor Youngf' Little did I ever think that though Bernice tried hard enough to find a man, she would ever succeed in getting a professor. The scene shifted and a large, com- fortable-looking home came faintly into view, with these words, "Friend- ship Setthlementf' written over the door. An elderly lady walked to- ward the door and her walk seemed familiar to me. Could this be Caro- lyn INfIcElveen grown so old and keeping a home for old maids? I fear that this is true. She made her round through the home and stopped before a sad, pitiful-looking lady, Elizabeth Iifiller. Gracious! the rumor that I heard about T. rejecting Grubber for a chorus girl must have been true. What is this I see? A classroom of dignified Seniors taking notes on "How to Teach Nursery Rhymes in the Primary Grades." The educa- tional chair previously occupied by our former beloved teacher, Miss Helen Dickinson, seemed now tobe filled very efficiently by INIinna Mc- Call. She is now putting into actual practice all the theoretical knowledge which she acquired at M. N. S. "The Charleston Girl" fiashed be- fore my eyes in bright colors. I found myself in the crowd at New York trying to squeeze through the impatient throng. This must be something really thrilling, I thought. Thrilling was right, for whom should I behold on the stage but lVIary Grif- fith! Mary Griffith in vaudeville costume and dancing for the madden- ing crowd of New York. This was THE SUN DIAL 9 surely the shock of my life. I was about to let my eyes drift from the ball, when suddenly an ad- vertisement of a newspaper com- manded my attention. "Ruby Grif- fith announces herself candidate for Senator of South Carolina." Her pic- ture also appeared and a small para- graph stating that she could argue beautifully on the rights of women. Yes, yes! that reminds me that Ruby used to expound fluently on that sub- ject the year that I knew her. Before me came, a picture of a quiet, serene crowd out on a campus having a sunset prayer meeting. There seemed to be three very distinguished persons in their midst. just then, one of the girls walked up to a tall man and said, "lXIr. VVoodward, will you please introduce our speakers?" lN'Ir. VVoodward got up in his usual way and said, "Girls, we are glad to have with us tonight Billy Sunday and his assistant preacher, Ruby Burton, of whom some of you have perhaps heard. She was one of our Seniors in 1926 and one who could always be trusted. VVe are proud that our school has produced such characters. ,Ruby's work has been a success, and now she is trying to make a success of her roommate, Jessie Jones, who is with her. Ruby has spent much money in cultivating .les- sie's voice, hoping that Jessie, in turn, will be their chief soloist. Thus the great work will be aided by Nliss jones., These words doumbfounded me so utterly that I lost the picture entirely. Just now I see a real estate agent talking to a buyer as hard as her tongue can rattle. She is not even giving him a chance to get in a word, but is making him thrust his hand toward the dotted line. In a second I see that Kentucky Belle, by her gift of tongue, has made her buyer sign his name and has made a great real estate deal. In contrast to the other scenes, I was a little relieved to glimpse inside of a beautiful church. Harmoniou- sounds were peeling forth in sweet ac- cord, and as I observed the pianist I recognized her to be Jessie johnson. This soft, melancholy dream ended here, as my patient suddenly called me back to realization. Had she known that her nurse was having such a delightful time gazing in fancy upon her old classmates at NI. N. S.. I don't believe she could have been so heartless as to disturb her. THE PROPHET. SENIOR NORMAL CLASS POEM, '26. Come, join with us ye students dear And let us all rejoice! Proclaim the wonders of this year With strong and hearty voice. No poet nor artist can explain What hlontreat means to us: VVe'll say to be quite plain with you It really does mean much. VVe have enjoyed the snow and ice. The hikes, the fun, and allg And now when it is just so nice We have to leave it all. We'll hold our lVIontreat standards high For all that's pure we'll stand That others as the years go by Shall clearly see them o'er the land. Our motto says to be-not seem. lNIay we each day take care To make our work a happy stream That flows to harbors fair, For all thats' right let's make our aim Rewards of value know And honor each dear treasured name Wherever we may go. ass History As the Class of '26 draws near to that grand and glorious event of grad- uation, to which we have looked for- ward so wistfully, we glance back over the road which we have traveled, that held for us many trials and troubles: yet. along which we have had many joys and surprises. Indeed. that was an exciting time when we gathered together on Sep- tember the eighth, nineteen hundred and twenty-four, although some were a few days late. And all of these girls! I wondered how many were in my class. Several states were represented. ,Iudith Bowman, Fliza- beth lliller, and Ruth Sikes were from North Carolina: Ruby Burton. Bernice Calhoun, Lillie Illae Gil- strap, Lucille Gladney, Ifrnestine Hollingsworth. hlaude .I a c k s on, Alessie Johnson, Klinna lXIcCall, Carolyn lllclflveen. Hattie Stuckey and I had made our way from the dear old Palmetto state, South Caro- lina: Alyce lfrazure and Iflorence Harrison came from Florida, and Ione Campbell was the sole repre- sentative of Tennessee. After a few days of classification, enrollment, and the learning of rules, we started out with much zest and ambition. lN'Iiss Dickinson thought it strange that we could not distin- guish Education I from Ifducatiou VI, and could not keep our schedule straight. Nevertheless, we were soon on the right road after many dis- couragements. In October, there was added another member to our class. Who could she be other than llarian Cole from Kentucky, and she has been "Kentucky Belle" to us ever since. After Christmas, I-lattie Stuckley did not return, but sought to put her recent training into actual practice near her home. In the early spring, Dan Cupid shot his arrow at our quiet Ruth Sikes. Due to ill health, .lessie johnson and lklaude jackson had to leave us, and after that, there were only fourteen re- maining. It was li0t long before some good spirit sent Georgia Rich- ardson and Hettie Taylor to join us. We had many good times together during the yearg receptions, picnics, and parties made us feel glad that we were here. Vacation came and passed too soon. but of course we were glad for Sep- tember to come again, bringing ten of our number back with Ruby and Nlary Griffith from South Carolina as new members. VVe entered this year with more enthusiasm than ever. It was unlike the previous year in that no new members were added and no one had to leave us. How- ever, it has not been less eventful in regard to our good times as we have had many parties, receptions, and hikes during the year. VVe will al- ways have fond reminiscences of the Senior-junior Valentine party, the time when we, as lads. were given the pleasure of showing our love for the fair lasses, the -luniors, and we shall never forget the enjoyable time that we had at the Alunior-Senior banquet at Easter time. We have had our troubles and struggles, but at last we have reached our long-desired goal, only to realize it is not the end but a threshold from which we launch out into life with :w more determined goal in view, and may we really put into action rather than in words, "Esse Quan Vide-ri." jizssuf joxes.

CLASS SENIOR-JUNIOR BREAKFAST. On the morning of February the fifteenth, the members of the Senior Normal class entertained the Juniors at an informal breakfast. The Juniors with their sponsor came dressed as little girls and were greet- ed by the Seniors and their sponsor dressed as little boys. Of course the small girls and boys at Hrst were somewhat bashful, but after a few moments the ice was broken and each little Senior "boy" escorted a little Junior "girl" to the Domestic Science room where they found the breakfast table most attractive in its decorations appropriate to the Valentine season. Two small girls from the Fresh- man class, dressed as cupids, served the tempting menu which consisted of the following: Grapefruit Cocktail Ham and Eggs on Toast Sweet Cakes and Honey Coffee During the meal toasts were given by different members of each class and at the close the Seniors rose and sang to their hostesses, the juniors. C11 VVhile the Seniors were enjoy- ing this delightful occasion with the Jniors they could not help realizing that the "good old days' 'at Klontreat Normal were rapidly drawing to a close. NORMAL SENIORS SLR- PRISED One beautiful day in llay, when everyone longed to be out in the sun- shine and enjoy the beauties of awak- ening spring, a class of Normal Sen- iors trudged up to Sylvan Heights. We were going to keep the contract that we had made with Bliss Setser to clean her house. At last we were going to raise the money for the royalty on our play! As we went in the door, there stood Bliss Setser and Bliss NIcGirt before a blazing fire. The house looked very clean, and was attractive- ly decorated with pink dogwood. We THE SL' N DIAL II could not understand what we were to clean but nevertheless we asked hfliss Setser what we were to do. just then a yell, "Seniors, Seniors," rang ofut from a distant room and rushing in we found our beloved Juniors. This explained why the house was so clean, but why was hfliss lVIcGirt there? We began to ramble around and in the kitchen we saw lots of "eats," This aroused our curiosity. stands even yet. Our sponsors served and we are not sure that she under- versation by her "hows" and "whys" Jessie Jones interrupted every con- a delightful lunch. During this time many jokes were told about why the Juniors did our work and gave us the money. "Greek" McCall said that we were lazy and poor so they took pity on us. We do not know that we are exactly lazy, but we did appreciate not having to work. From Jessie Jones' questions we found that the supposed "junior Hiking Club" was a cleaning club. Let's give three cheers for the junior Normal Class, the best class in school. THE RAINBOW. When earth's trials sore beset us, And the load seems hard to bear, And our friends seem not to love us, And the world seems not to care. And our lives seem C, so useless, And our tasks seem all in vaing We forget the promise glorious Of the rainbow through the rain. Uften we are tired and lonely, And the world seems dark and dreary And we long for one friend only How we wish that He were near. We forget that He has promised, And His promises are true, Through the rainbow He is speaking Now to me and now to you. Let us run our race with patience. Fight the fight that knows no loss: LLet us prize the things of pure gold, Let us care not for the dross. Let us live our lives of service In a world where need is plain Thinking always of God's promise- In the rainbow through the rain. ELIZABETH Hfmitrox. THAN KSGIVING IJAY Of all the days during the school year that the hlontreat girls look forward to with happy anticipation, it is Thanksgiving Day, when every- body has been hard at school work for two months and they are begin- ning to feel the need of a little diver- sion. Our annual Thanksgiving hol- iday last fall will long be remem- bered. After the thanksgiving servi- ces which were held that morning, the big dinner bell rang out its sum- mons for us to gather in the dining room, where we found tables pro- fusely decorated and heavily laden with flowers and food suitable and suggestive for the Thanksgiving sea- son. During the meal, Elizabeth Hamilton, as toastmistress, called for toasts given by different girls. These girls gave very appropriate tributes to the school, to the faculty, to Dr. and phases of s chool work.

The charter members were selected from the Senior and junior High School classes. hiempership in the society is conferred as an honor on those who have shown special literary ability. The English novel has been the course of study adopted for this year. During the year the society has taken a bird's eye view of the evolution of the English novel by reading a few novels and indicating the steps of de- velopment. hlost important of all, the Society strives to learn to appre- ciate good literature and to distin- guish it from bad or rather cheap literature. Interesting and instructive pro- grams are given every llonday eve- ning. A critic assists in improving and developing the programs which consist of lectures, readings, debates, character sketches and reports on books. A touch of humor is occa- sionally added to give variety to the general tone of the program. The officers are: Sarah jenkins. president: Ruth Reynolds, treasurer: Klartha Patton, secretary. Other charter members are: Oris Black- burn, Eva Phillips, Lamar VVood- ward and Dorothy hlurray. Those who have entered by presenting papers are: Elizabeth VVilson, Eliza- beth Hamilton, Irene Beck, Sara No- land and Ida Belle Loven. Cast PU s THE IN ITIATION PARTY. The old students of the lXIontreat Normal School welcomed the new students and teachers on the evening of September the twelfth, by an initiation party. At eight o'clock all the students and teachers assembled in the lobby of the dormitory, ready for an evening of fun. The lobby was most attractively decorated with asters, goldenrods, and the school colors. Upon looking around the room. one could easily distinguish the new girls by the expressions of doubtful anticipation on their faces, as they stood by, waiting to receive orders from those who reveled in the feats which they were to witness. To the delight of the "old" and the terror of the "new," each new student had been assigned an old student as an escort. After reaching the lobby, where quite a crowd had gathered for amusement at the expense of the new girls thos: cruel "old" students forced their partners to adopt the habits of lower animals in rooting nuts across the lobby floor with their noses, whether short or Roman. Then after all their strenuous efforts and hard struggles to do this, the nut was cruelly snatched away from them and eaten by their partners. lilindfolded, led upstairs and through halls, the new pupils were pushed into seats and commanded to remove their slippers. All eycept a few rebellious ones, submissixely obeyed only to set their feet in a basin of cold water. Some showed awe and fear in their faces, while others gave vent to the sudden sur- prise by a loud, shrill scream. Then back to the lobby trooped the merry makers and slips of paper were passed to the new girls. On these slips were explicit instructions for tasks to be done the following week. After several games. recitaa tions, solos and other impromptu con- tributions, a delightful ice course was served. At the eleventh hour another bell rang to call many tired and weary bodies to their rooms. But not to sleep, until all the bed clothes could be taken from under the mattresses. and the knots in various articles of apparel were untied. A good reason for that mischievous twinkle, seen in many an "old" studentis eye at the call of the bell. But sleep came at last to their weary souls, and pleasant dreams of the initiation party of 'zo at which they would be the hostessesl A FACI'Ifl'Y lXII'fl'fTlNCi It was a warm spring evening and I sat by my open window, a hook in hand, trying to make myself believe I was studying, ivlnle in reality l was only dremaing of the coming vacation.

THE SLN DIAL 15 CHARACTER THE SCHOOLS SPECIALTY The Montreat Normal School a few years ago was only a dream. To- day it is a great reality, a living force, full of beauty, hope and aspiration. With a faculty of twelve and a stu- dent body of one hundred and fifteen, animated by one spirit, one aim and ambition to attain the best in school life, the future is bright and the past is not to be ashamed of. Few schools have attained so high standards in so short a time. It was born of faith, without a visible means of support. It has been nourished and fostered by Christian love, and in the brief time of nine years it has grown from a very small beginning to a school of no mean proportions. Yet its excellency does not consist in size, but in character. It is a standardized Hifh School and two-year Normal course, yet it majors in the major things of life. Its ideals a1'e as high as the surround- ing mountainsg its motives are as pure as the mountain air it breathes, its beauty is as rare and exquisite as the mountain flowers in spring time: its spirit is as joyful as the laughter of rippling brooks or as sweet as the loveliest notes of the song bird that fill the forest with musicg its charac- ter and spirit are in perfect accord with its environment-genuine, nat- ural, grand and beautiful. Every mountain peak, every flower, every song bird and crystal steam has its message, but supremely the message of the inspired VVord is a living force for character building. Un the cheeks and lips of the Klontreat girls are Natures exquisite tints which other girls, as poor artists, are trying to imitate. They are trained and taught to have the same honest, gen- uine and noble qualities of soul which many others vainly attempt to coun- terfeit. In a word, the Klontreat Normal not only stands for learning and scholarship, but supremely for the fine art of living in a true and genu- ine way. In the hlontreat Normal modesty, gentleness, trust and love adorns the highest type of womanhood. Every member of the school, both faculty and student body, is a professing Christian, and to a remarkable de- gree their lives ring true to their pro- fession. This is as it should be, for the community is first of all a Chris- tian community and the school a Christian school, and this means the best. The Montreat Normal has grown and must continue to grow by the ir- resistible force of its own merit. No one has ever gone out in search of students, but students of high char- acter, who appreciate and desire the best, have sought the school. As the years go by, students will come in ever increasing numbers, and better and better provision will be made to meet their needs, until the school at- tains the highest standards of a normal college, thoroughly furnished and equipped to send out the highest grade of Christian teachers. Why Presbyterian Church in the L'nited States specially designed and equipped to furnish the highest type of teach- ers? This would meet the greatest need of our educational system today. Our boys and girls must oe taught not only the academic courses, but also the art of right living in relation to God and man. With such aim and purposes, the school can confidently expect the best men and women to give their hearty co-operation and support in making these ideals realities. OUR LATIN DEPARTNIENT. For many years now Latin has had to endure countless hard knocks at the hands of its enemiesg but as a newspaper editor jocosely, yet truly, remarks, "News of the death of the Latin language is greatly exagger- ated." And he continues, evidently with real sympathy for the under- dog of our modern curriculum, "The trouble With Latin is that those who wrote the eloquent obituary notices for the language hated to have them belied by the least sign of continuing vitality. They had said that the tongue of Horace and Virgil was ex- tinct, and they were bound it should remain dead as they had declared it. But it is still at work as vitalizing, energizing principle in spoken and written languagef' A famous publishing house is ad- vertising a series of Latin text-books for high school use. "Latin," runs their advertisement, "is coming back Why? Because it has been discov- ered that Latin is 1IOt a dead lan- guage. That it is a vital factor in our own mother tongue." Yes, Latin is undoubtedly coming back, and there are many indications that so far as general conditions are concerned there are brighter days ahead. For that very reason, it seems to me the more important that we should take time t oconsider the Latin situation in our own school. Until recently, North Carolina re- quired at least two years of Latin for graduation from an accredited high school, and only in special cases might a principal allow a pupil to substitute some other subject. In those days we had in our Latin classes probably 80 per cent of our students. Two years ago the State withdrew Latin from the list of required subjects and made it an elective. Today we find only 30 per cent of our students studying Latin. If this has happened with us, we may be sure that something sim- ilar has happened in many other North Carolina schools. For boys and girls who are hoping to go to college or who may unexpectedly have an opportunity of going to college, there is danger of a serious mistake in planning their high school course. The needed word of warning I ven- ture to quote at some length from the current number of "The Classical journalnz f'One of the principal difficulties the colleges have to contend with is that candidates for entrance come to us wih their high school curriculum at loose ends-no foreign language, perhaps, particularly no Latin, no history, not enough mathematics. They may obtain admission, but they are handicapped. lylany of them ex- pected to go to college throughout their high school course. A little sound advice would have saved them a great deal of trouble and grief- just as a little counsel regarding the necessity of French and German for graduate study would save many a college student from emberrassment after graduation. The high school principal need not approve of Latin, yet may inform likely candidates for college entrance of the fact that most colleges do think it desirable, that in many Eastern colleges it is still com- pulsoryf' In this school we are fortunate in having a principal who heartily ap- proves of Latin and who would gladly allow all our pupils to elect at least two years of Latin. The teachers also, apparently without exception, realize the value of the subject. The attitude of indifference or antagonism to Latin seems, then, to belong en- tirely to the high school pupil and especially to the pupil who has never opened a Latin book for serious study. Believing that the situation might be helped if a few of its friends would speak a kind word for Latin, late in the school year I called for volun- teers to hand in brief statements of the values they had found in the lan- guage. The response was most grati- fyingg but only a summing up of the 16 THE SUN DIAL numerous papers can be given here. Practically all the papers state that Latin has cleared up many difficulties in English grammar and has given an increased English vocabulary. As one pupil aptly expresses it, "Latin is in itself an English dictionary." A for- eign-born pupil says that in one year of Latin she has learned more new English words than ever before. Sev- eral pupils think that their knowledge of Latin has made biology and mathe- matics easier. because they have been able to recognize the meaning of technical terms. A broader knowl- edge of Roman history and of Greek and Roman mythology is mentioned, and an awakening to the fact that human nature is the same in all ages. Of significance is a girl's statement that she has been surprised to find Latin much easier than she had heard it would be, and a boy's statement htat Latin can be mastered with ease "if every lesson is studied properly and thoroughlyf To those, then, who are undecided as to what subjects they will study next year, our Latin department is beckoning eagerly. Home on in-the waters' fine!" NI. NI. M.

The following invitations were received: "Dear Juniors this heralds a greet- ing and request on the Juniors' part, That ye come at six on lNIarch 27 To the room of Domestic Art." Promptly at the hour and place mentioned above you could find all the Juniors with their guests seated around the table. Easter flowers were artistically arranged around the room. A most elaborate five course dinner was served. The menu was: Fruit Cocktail Pimola Rolls Chicken Fricassee Creamed Potatoes Peas in Timbales Rolls Pickles Ice Cream Lady Fingers Coffee Toasts were given for the Seniors, sponsors and guests. These were re- sponded to in words which expressed love and appreciation for their sister class and friends. Throughout the evening the air was filled with music and laughter. The seniors left the room feeling GOING TO CHAPEL very happy for the evening of pleas- ure the juniors had given them. DR. AND MRS. W. S. WILSON In October Dr. W. ES. Wilson came to Montreat with his family to be our pastor. From the very first we recognized in Dr. and Mrs. Wil- son real friends and this feeling has increased with the passing weeks and months. Dr. Wilson's Sunday messages have been full of wise council and admonition and he has ever held up to us the Christ as our example. In February a series of revival services were held for a week and we all felt greatly refreshed spiritually by these services. As a result of these meet- ings the few girls who were not al- ready Christians have made a pro- fession of faith in Christ and now each girl of the school counts herself a Christian. Mrs. Wilson has meant much to each of us in a special way. During the session she has entertained every girl in school in her hospitable home. We always felt delighted when it was our time to go for she and Dr. Wilson made us feel that they were personally interested in our welfare. We hope the girls of the Montreat Normal school may have the Wilsons with them for many years to come. DR. AND MRS. W. A. ROSS INTEREST US IN MEXICO. Among the pleasant happenings to us in the fall of our school year was having with us for several weeks Dr. and Mrs. W. A. Ross, two of our faithful missionaries to Mexico. Miany times Dr. Ross was at chapel services, in our pulpit, at our C. E. meetings and gave us a most intimate insight into the needs of the Mexicaii for the blessed gospel as we have it. Often, too, Mrs. Ross would so willingly and interestingly tell us of these people she so loves. At any time she could have a group of us eagerly listening to her accounts of the habits, customs, and home life of these people so close to us and yet so different. In this way our interest and sympathy for them was aroused as the reading of many books could not have done. It was with a feeling of deepest re- gret that we bade farewell to Dr. and lVIrs. Ross in November, as they left at the end of their furlough to take up their labors again. Our interest and prayers will always be with them. ,FN-.- THE SL' X DIAL 40 0 I HIGH SCHOOL GR.ADL'.ATING CLASS SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL RLITH R. REYNOLDS...I".-President WILLA BENNET ...........

As the first buds of spring burst forth and the birds sing merrily we feel that our life is renewed and body and soul hear the call of the great out-of-doors. It is a May morning in the year nineteen forty-six, and this call of the out-of-doors comes to a young woman of about thirty-five. She trips down the steps of her attractive home, holding a small boy and girl by the hand. It is decoration day and mother and children are planning an all day trip to the wooded hills about fifty miles from their home. The sedan at the curb carries them quickly, and soon the city streets and closely crowded houses are IJELSI. Even the car feels the thrill of the open country and leaps along as if it too were happy, As the hills rise higher and the road becomes a mere foot-path, the three scramble out and begin to pick their way along a little forest path, that winds here and there path is hardly visible. After a sharp bend, they come upon among the trees. The underbrush becomes thicker, and the a cabin which appears to be occupied, and the children, tired by the walk, wish a few minutes of rest. The door stands open, inviting them. and the little boy, running ahead, enters the cabin. XVhen the mother looks in a few minutes later, he is climbing upon the knee of a strong, well built woman. whose head is turned away from the door. At the sound of other steps, she turns and then springs up exclaiming. "Ruth Castleman, how did you ever come here?" and before she has finished speaking, the visitor interrupts with, "If it isn't Annie Sue Bost, the president of our senior class at Montreat High School!" And then there followed rapid questions and hurried answers about all the happenings of the twenty years since graduation. Finally Annie Sue tells Ruth, now Mrs. VVycliff. that this is her secluded retreat where she has her magicians labora- tory, and inviting the Wycliffs into a dark recess at the back of the cabin, she shows them a tlieatriscope that she has recently perfected. Of course, the children, as well as their mother, are curious, and so Annie Sue very modestly tells them that she will demonstrate if they will be seated. She asks Ruth if she remembers Elizabeth Hamilton, and Ruth says. "XVhy yes!" "Well," says Annie Sue, "perhaps you would like to know what she is doing now. I will write her name on a piece of parchment with this magic Huid. and when I place it in the theatriscope there will dash upon the screen the picture of Elizabeth as she is at this moment." There is a whirl and there appears a picture, the atmos- phere of which is full of gaiety and festivity. A large han- quet is taking place in the dining hall of the governor's man- sion. In the midst of the tint-ly dressed ladies they see Elizabeth. mistress of the govt-rnor's mansion, This fades out and the little girl claps her hands gleefully. "Please show me more," she says, and Ruth adds. "Oh, Annie Sue. do let me see all those who were in the class at Mon- treat." "VVith pleasure." answr-re the great magician. Next they see a studio, handsomely furnished. It is il- lumlnated only by the moonlight and in its rays Ruth Reynolds sits gracefully at the piano making revisions in a copy of "The Moonlight Sonata." A swimming pool comes into view. Evelyn McDowell ap- pears wearing a large placard. "Use Ocatgon soap. It floats. K1-cp that school-girl complexion. Free sample." She throws it in the water and when it fails to come to the top she makes a frantic dive and goes under yelling. "Oh for Life Buoy!" XVhen the next picture flashes on the screen they see a beautiful opera house in Paris clowed to the utmost and ion the stage they recognize their friend and companion of long ago, Emilie Miller. She has now attained international fame ns a singer and all the world is being made glad by her voice. The nextscene is in a. far, far off country. China. Incense seems to fill the air and an Oriental atmosphere prevails. Elaine Hatchell is sitting in the midst of a. group of little Chinese children. Their faces are all turned to her and they are listening eagerly to the story she is telling. This vanished and next they see a domestic science kitchen. There are girls in white aprons who seem very interested in something their teacher is telling them. On drawing nearer they see that the teacher is no other than Oris Blackman. The next picture is in New York. The scene, in a Metro- politan Opera House. is beautiful. On the stage they see Ida Carrie, dressed in an exquisitely graceful and dainty evening gown of orchid tissue satin. She is the possessoi of a rich contralto voice which is causing the same favorable comment excited in the days when she sang at M. N. S. A cat-farm comes into view. Sarah Osborne is seated at the head of a long table. on each side of which are ten or fifteen little kittens. She is giving them their first lesson in table manners, Doesn't that recall the good old days in Montreat when the students assembled to partake of grits and gravy? The scene changes. It is hundreds and hundreds of miles away. They see Elizabeth Henderson. or rather the one who used to be Elizabeth Henderson, in Paris. She is on her honeymoon. for she has just married a rich New York banker. It is night and the lights of old Broadway blaze the name of Sara Jenkins. The scene changes to the interior and there they see Sara dancing with all her usual gracefulness. The scene shifts to a football field. A game has just ended. everyone hilarious with joy is rushing GOWH from the grandstand to congratulate the hero of the hour, Lamar XVoodward who has just taken the honors from Red Grange. The scene is again in a foreign country, the jungle of Africa. Ruth Faires parts the dense thicket and trips out lightly. She sounds the sweet notes of a flute and from all directions baby elephants come forth. Then there follows a lesson in gracefulness. As the scene changes a stillness seems to prevail and on the screen they see a large hospital ward and one in White is passing quickly from one cot to another, smoothing a pillow here and gently caressing a fevered brow there. All eyes are turned toward her and as they 100k and Wonder who it is, The face seems familiar and they recognize Bertha Bailey. The picture presents joy and happiness. Ruth Stowe has at last found the man after her heart and is a bride. She is still as sweet and charming as she was at eighteen. A large audience is assembled. An orator is holding each person spell bound. She is dressed in a smartly tailored suit with a stiff white collar. She turns her head and they gaze on the countenance of Mae Kent, the Cicero of 1946- Once more they see IL scene in a theatre. Hamletds brathing his last. and in the writhing figure they VQCOSUIZU VVilliam Buckner, the great. Ssakespearean actor. The scene is familiar. The Blue Ridge Mountains rise high and the center of attraction is Look-Out. where Mattie .Iohnson sits leisurely before her easel drawing cartoons for the "Sun Dial." The picture changes again. They see a. large church full of young people- By the wrapt expression on their earnest young faces one could tell at once that all were wholly un- conscious of anyone but the speaker, and at once they recognize the speaker as Donald Wilson, who was the faith- ful president of Christian Endeavor so long ago in '26, Since thcn he has climbed far up the ladder of success and has now taken Dan Polings place as president of the United Society of Phi-istian Endeavor. As this picture passes the class of twenty-six fades out and Annie Sue and Ruth are left alone with the memory of their old schoolmates. 22 THE SUN DIAL SENIOR HIGH CLASS HISTORY Ten years ago, bright, happy little boys and girls were growing up in different sections of our country, leading a very carefree life. But four years ago the trouble be- gan. No longer considered "little," we were packed off to llontreat to register as Freshmen in the High School there. On the porch of the school stood Bertha Bailey and Don- ald VVilson staring in wonder at the lesson schedule just posted. "Boy, be you a Freshman?" I remember hearing Bertha ask. And Donald's answer was, "Looks that way." Soon we were fairly swimming in Latin, English, Biology, French, and llath books. VVe swam, floated. sank, rose again, struggled on. A few went under, others were dragged ashore, but those of us you see here now have won-won the great race of High School. There are glad memories and sad memories to look back on. During our Sophomore year the school dor- mitory burned, and Andelk Lodge and Sylvan Heights were opened for our use. Our class has provided the Student Body with the following valuable of- ficers: President of Student Body Q25- 26H, Elizabeth Hamliton. President of Senior C. E. f24-259, VVilliam Buckner. President of Senior C. E. C25-265, Donald VVilson. Athletic Nlanager C24-25, 25-265, Bertha Bailey. Last years' statistics also show that we provided for the school: The biggest llirt-Illae Walker. The most bashful girl-lllattie Johnson. The most popular-Sara Jenkins. :Host ambitious boy- William Buckner. These are not all, but they suffice. Our graduating class this year is the largest in the history of the school. How proud we feel, and yet, how willingly we surrender our places to the coming Seniors. EMILIE RIILLER. We's'e all heard about the absent minded professor who scratched his griddle cakes and poured molasses down his back, but how about the one who tied his spaghetti and poured ketchup on his shoestrings. Senior Classes Present Plays Though beset with the difficulties and snags which lie in the path of all dramatic undertakings, the Seniors have been hard at work on the two plays promised as a part of com- mencement events. The enthusiasm and co-operation shown by the casts should be gratifying to the two Senior classes, who have worked hard to make possible the presentation of these plays. Both of them are in one- act form and are among the most popular of those given by various dramatic organizations in recent years. The names of the plays with the casts of characters are as follows: SUPPRESSED DEs1REs by Susan Glaspell Henrietta Brewster. .Ruth Reynolds Stephen Brewster. . .Annie Sue Bost lNLIabel ...............

Woodward gave a diner party in honor of Lamar's borthday, having as their special guests the High School Seniors. The color scheme was carried out in the class colors, purple and gold. The table was attractively decorated with green vines, in which were in- tertwined yellow jonquils and purple sweet peas. The motif design was a gorgeous basket of these flowers, with a large bow of purple tulle on the handle. The scene was effectively lighted by a number of yellow can' dles in crystal holders. At each place was a tiny diploma in gold, tied with purple ribbon. When these were unrolled, they proved to contain the menu, which had the names of the officers of the class and teachers cleverly used in naming the articles of food. The menu consisted of the following: Hncens llfiontreat Cocktail Hi School Hearts Senior Plums Chickan a la Bost Sponsor Relish lVIcDowell pommes de terre Class Peas Dorsey Delight Reynolds Roll Anderson Salad Tripp Tritles VVebb Glace 1926 Cakes Teachers' Special Miller Nlints lylembers of the Sophomore Class, daintily dressed as maids, served the dinner. Annie Sue Bost, Class President, gave some very interesting statistics regarding the class as :1 whole and also the different individuals. Dur- ing the dinner, little Albert Bauman came in with telegrams for each member of the class. These were read and proved to contain some mes- sage of personal interest.

Two of these were especially charming, 'fBeauty and the Beast," written and directed by Emilie lNIiller, and "Puss In Boots," written JUNIOR CLASS and directed by Elizabeth Hamilton. The music was selected from other compositions, and the words were gracefully adapted to the music. The fairy stories in both operettas were charmingly worked in. In "Puss In Boots' the costumes designed by Klrs. Davis deserve special mention. Vir- ginia Castleman served very capably as pianist in both operettas.

JUNIORS ENTERTAIN SENIORS The members of the High School graduating class were guests at a de- lightful buffet supper given by the Junior High School Class Iylonday evening, Nlarch 19th, at 6:30 o'clock in the dining room of the Alba Hotel. Purple and gold, the Senior Class col- ors, and gold and green, the junior Class colors, were gracefully and ap- propriately carried out in the decora- tions and menu. The table was lighted only by tall gold candles ar- ranged in crystal holders. The delicious menu consisted of the following: Fruit Cocktail Pimola Rolls Veal Salad Candle Salad Potato Chips Sandwiches Cafe Parfait Angel Food Cake Candy After supper, a program of read- ings and IHLISIC was very much en- joyed. Besides the members of the two classes, Bliss Virginia IVIcLaugh- lin and llrs. VVebb, cponsors of the Senior and junior Classes, were present. OUR FACULTY VVhat would we do without them, Our Faculty so dear? VVho have so patiently dealt with us Throughout this school year. Mr. Woodward, we love so well, Who to us has been so near, And Ilflrs. Woodward, our dear "mother" Who is always so sincere. Next we sing of ll-Irs. Webb, Who makes each hour bright, Who does so much for everyone, And makes every burden light. And hlrs. lbliller, kind and true, Who helps us to do right, And makes us want to study Even Latin with our might. Nlrs. Dorsey teaches science, She teaches it so well, And does a hundred other things We haven't room to tell. Nliss Dickinson has normal work, Welre sure we all will be Efficient teachers when we leave Her class in priInary. Miss NIcGirt means most of all, For she teaches how to sew, And cook and plan and keep a house, Things all good wives should know. Bliss Annie Webb has taught us math We love her, she's so gay. Miss Miller gives us things to eat, Her praise we loudly say. Illiss ll'IcLaughlin teaches history, And then when school is done She always goes on hikes with IIS And enters in our fun. Miss Setser keeps us well and strong, And whenever we are sick She gives us right good medicine And we are up so quick. Bliss Gordon teaches all of us To Hparley-vous Francais," Nliss Pauline Tripp teaches English So patiently each day. VVe never, never will forget Our Faculty so true, And now we give three cheers for all As we say "Farewell" to you. HOlfSICHUl,D ARTS lfXllllllT The annual reception and exhibit of the Domestic Arts was held in the latter part of Nlay in the Domestic Science Department. The large room was Inost attrac- tive with a profusion of mountain flowers and evergreens. As the guests entered, they were served fruit punch and wafers by some of the girls in this department. The front of the room was devoted to foods and cookery. Tables were covered with dishes of vegetables, sal- ads, cakes, pies and all the good things to appeal to one's appetite. All the food was IHOSI tempting in its appear- ance and showed skill in its prepara- tion. Hanging around the walls and on tables in the rear of the room were the various articles of clothing made by the Domestic Art classes. The beautiful and various colored spring dresses and coats on first appearance were quite stylish and on close inspec- tion showed that they were neatly made and trimmed with dainty hand- Work. A number of posters showing the value of foods, simplicity of dress and other phases of the work were displayed. The Home Economics Department has increased both in equipment and enrollment. Every day girls are real- izing the need of proper training along this line. Here at the llflon- treat Normal is where she can attain that which she is seeking. Miss NIC- Girt, the efficient teacher in the de- partment, and her classes deserve much credit for the attractive exhib- its, which showed that the students had done a year of hard work along these special lines.

The society has accom- plished much good in the lives of the girls this session, not only by means of the inspiration from the splendid programs, but by each one learning to take part herself in the regular Sunday evening services. Besides the helpful messages received on Sunday evenings, much interest is taken in the mid-week prayer services. The society has been fortunate in hearing foreign missionaries speak at differ- ent times. Dr. and llrs. Ross, of Klexico, spent several weeks in the school last fall. They spoke often of llexico, their work there, and the Rlexican people themselves. At the end of each month a social was given, appropriate to the season. In this way many delightful evenings were enjoyed by all of us. The girls have shown keen interest in the Christian Endeavor work this year. The programs, in which music has had an important part, have been carefully planned in advnace. The chief aim has been to give variety to the meetings in order to check any monotony that might creep in. A missionary program is given each month. The society owes the success of its attractive meetings to Kathleen Wallace, chairman of the Program Committee. In the month of N0- veinber the school was divided into four groups. Each group gave a pro- gram during this month. The prize for the winning groups was an enter- tainment by the losing groups. This plan aroused much interest. The society sent six delegates to the VVestern District of North Caro- lina Convention. which was held in Asheville. Splendid reports were brought back from this meeting. IXIany new ideas for socials and pro- grams and new duties for officers and committees were learned at the con- vention and practiced in our society. The district officers were elected at this convention. Donald VVilson, our capable president, was elected super- intendent of the Comrades of the Quiet Hour and Life Work Re- cruits. Gur society is most appreci- ative of this honor conferred on our president, and We are sure he will carry out the work faithfully and successfully. Nearly all the girls in the school have signed the Active lIember's pledge card. A large number have signed the Comrades of the Quiet Hour and Tenth Legion pledge cards also. So many of the girls are Chris- tian Endeavor experts that the execu- tive officers feel we have a well- trained society and one that really knows Christian Endeavor work. There was a Christian Endeavor Ex- pert Class this year during the month of April, and this was well attended. Posters have been wisely and beau- tifully prepared by Nlary Vance. These are posted at church every Sunday morning and at Christian En- deavor in the evenings. lN'Ir. Cunningham, All South Field Secretary, and lllr. Pepper, District President, visited the society this year and gave excellent addresses. The Executive Committee has ap- preciated the work done by our spon- sor, Nliss Annie Webb. She has worked patiently and faithfully with us, giving us much valuable assistance. The officers responsible for the splendid progress of the years' work in the society are: DONALD WILSON . . .....

As an incentive to the study of the Shorter Catechism in October, a house party was promised by Mrs. C. E. Dorsey to all those who would memorize the Catechism by the first of April. lVIany entered the contest, and there were twenty who qualified for the house party, which was held the week-end of Easter. The successful contestants were: lVIary Ella llrlilner, Myrtice Smith, Stella Ledford, Jessie jones, Emma Reclcerman, Nlary Hughes, Virginia Ross, Bernice Cal- houn, Bessie Cozart, Lucile Gladney, Sara Osborne, hlartha Patton, .lose- phine VVoodward, Isabel VVilson, Evelyn NIcDowell, Ruth Stowe, Ruth Castleman, Fannie Gilreath, Ernes- tine Hollingsworth, Bertha Bailey, Princie hlaphet and Dorothy hlur- ray. These girls were entertained by lNIr. and hlrs. C. E. Dorsey for a Week-end house party. The time was spent in helping to prepare the de- licious meals, washing dishes, playing games and in going to ride. Each one, by Klr. and llrs. Dorsc-y's kind, loving treatment, was made to feel SHORTER C.-XTECHISM CLASS that she was in her own home. The nights were especially en- joyed with the live chatter and songs of girls who never considered sleep as a necessity at a house party. As there were about eight girls in each room, there were few hours in the night when someone was not calling to the girls across the hall, singing or playing the ukelele. This is a time which we shall al- ways remember. How could the Montreat Normal do without lVIr. and Mrs. Dorsey, who always help us to live better lives, encourage us to learn the Catechism and give us delightful house parties as a reward? CHRISTIAN SERVICE BAND If you've ever noticed, perhaps you know-if not, thereys a group of girls in the Normal that you should meet. Altogether or individually they are always "lending a helping hand." And no wonder! for they are the Christian Service Band. Those girls who have definitely de- cided to go into full-time Christian service are the members, and the meetings are held every Sunday after- noon. This past year Annie Belle lNIc- .1 f, Donald has been the leader, and, as she is a Student Volunteer with deep sincerity and consecration, the pro- grams have eyer been helpful and in- spirational. The Student Body sent one of the Band to the State Student Volunteer conference, and since that time, the different girls have written birthday letters to some of our Presbyterian missionaries on the foreign field. This brings them in touch with the dif- ferent types of work, and also helps them to decide in which country they wish to labor. Nlay the illontreat group grow with the years, always rendering more loving service, thru Him who strengtheneth, and may it stand firm- ly "For Christ and the Church." One of the girls in this group, Lu- cille Gladney, has attained unusual distinction. She has recited the Cate- chism with Scripture Proof. This is the first time anyone in the Southern Presbyterian Church has accomplished this feat since IOIS, as far as we hay 'if' any record. 32 THE SLN DIAL MUSIC NOTES lNIrs. H. H. A. Beach, Americas foremost woman composer, was a guest of lllr. and llrs. Adams in April. VVe were privileged to hear llrs. Beach in an informal talk at chapel. She told how, when the com- mission came to write a Cantata for the opening of the VVoman's Building for the Columbian Exposition in 1893, in Chicago, it took her but a moment to decide upon the One Hundredth Psalm with its joyous message. All were charmed with the natural. simple manner of this writer of music in its largest forms. whose reputation is as great in Europe as it is in America. llrs. Beach is always happy to say that all her musical training was received in this country. The school is fortunate in secur- ing lor its vocal teacher next session, lllrs. Alice Cothran, of New York City, whose interest in her subject and in young people argues much ot promise for the coming year. Added to her charming personality, llrs. Cothran unites years of serious study in hex chosen art. LI FAUNG VVANG GIVES RECITAL On Saturday afternoon. Klay 22nd, Li Paung VVang, our student from Shanghai, China. gave a delight- ful program of piano music at llrs. Adams home, The House-in-the- VVoods. Li Faung came to our school especially to study with Klrs. Adams and this program showed unusual technical and artistic ability. PIANO STUDENTS GIVE RECITAL On Saturday afternoon, May 15th, the music pupils of Mrs. Crosby Adams gave a very interesting pro- gram at lllrs. Adams' home. Some of these girls were just beginners but each one showed splendid training and preparation. The program was greatly enjoyed by a large and ap- preciative audience.

This year the baseball team was mostsuccessful and has kept up the record started when it was organized four years ago, and has won every game played this season. llany games of great interest were played. The men of lVIontreat thought they could beat the girls! It was a hard fought game from start to finish and showed some good work on the part of both teams. But our team triumphed over the men in an 18 to IO victory on the liontreat diamond. The men received good training and were pre- pared to fight the forest fire the fol- lowing day. Then we got a good chance to show the faculty they didn't know it all, when we won over them in an 2.1. to ii victory. llany other games were played with equal success.

One of the interesting features of the season was basketball-with many of the old girls back and lots of new material, an excellent team was selected after daily practice un- der the direction of Ida Luttrell. YVe got our share of victories and were defeated only once during the season. Perhaps the most thrilling game was the one played with Swannanoa on their court. VVhen we won with a score of 26 to 13. The forwards. "Grubber" lliller, Frances Beasley. and Priscilla Kincaid. were stars in shooting goals. The guards.

Tennis is the most popular sport considering the number that partici- pate. VVe were fortunate in having Annie Bell fllasdonald, a skilled player, as the director. Not only did games of singles and doubles give pleasure, but the tournaments were APRIL FOOL. Our April Fool's day started with a jump! Someone was inspired early. and our rising bell rang about six-thirty. Then a girl rushed into the corridor saying, "That's the five minute bell," and well-we jumped! Later. because llr. VVoodward had said nothing of giving us a holiday. the thought arose in the fertile brains of about twenty of the girls to run away. At eight o'clocl-t a crowd ran out of the dormitory, and started somewhere. Somewhere, yes. somewhere-they did not know where. The teachers say they went up Piney, but we think they only reached the second terrace. There they sat and waited for the girls to start to school, but they waited in BASEBALL TEAM especially fine. The tournaments be- tween the classes and also between the faculty and student body were played with enthusiasm and full of the good old school spirit. This year the letters will be given to girls that merit them not only for enthusiasm and interest in sports but also their achievements in other phases of school work. ln determin- vain. No one went to school that day! Finally the runaways decided to return and see what had happened. They arrived and found that hir. Woodward had cars ready to take the girls to Catawba Falls. But he thought those twenty girls who had gone on this wild escapade would stay away all day, and had not pre- pared for them to go. They had to remain in llontreat, yes but-Oh. the jokes they did playl They got into all the mischief they could, but sh - - - donlt tell. Now for those who submitted to authority and waited for the "powers that be" to direct them-they were the ones who enjoyed a day of won- derful change and recreation. The ing who shall receive letters, scholar- ship, deportment, attendance, punc- tuality, and points made in all forms of recreation will be considered. The ones who did not care to par- ticipate in the more strenuous sports enjoyed bowling and hiking to places of interest such as lVIount Mitchell, Blue Ridge, Piney and Lookout lVIountain. trip to Catawba Falls, given by Misses Webb's and McLaughlii1's pageant groups was very enjoyable. The girls bumped along in trucks, lifting their glad voices in merry song, and when the truck had car- ried them as far as it could, they hiked the rest of the way to the falls. At noontime a bountiful picnic lunch was enjoyed by all, after which the girls climbed the mountain exploring the by-paths along the falls. Some even rushed the season to the extent Oh, no! it wasn't cold! of wading. There were many sighs of regret when they returned to lliontreat, some hiking and some riding, dead tired, but happy. All you who helped make the first of April a Perfect Day-Thank you! 36 THE SLN DIAL ANNUAL TRIP TO MITCHELL Friday morning, October the 2nd, we started on our annual hike to Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Rockies. About fifty of us, knicker- clad, with walking stick, kodak, tin cup and bag of lunch started out in the greatest spirits for the treat ahead of us. The fifteen mile hike is a steady climb all the way and demands much strength and endurance to reach the top. All day we kept up our march stopping only long enough to rest, eat our lunch or to enjoy the beauties of nature along the Way. VVe reached Camp Alice, three quarters of a mile from the top, by mid-afternoon. This was where we were to spend the night, so we stopped to rest and to select our sleeping space on the bare floor of the Camp before continuing our climb to the top. We reached the summit of the peak about sunset but were disap- pointed that the view was obstructed TENNIS CLUB by a heavy fog. After exploring the top as long as the day light allowed, we returned to Camp Alice to pre- pare supper for the hungry crowd of hikers. Pork and beans, weinies, sandwiches, hot chocolate never tasted better to any one. About nine o'cloclc the full moon came out in all its glory and we again went to the top of old lVIitchell and could see for miles around the mountains and valleys below us. After this hour in Paradise, as it seemed to us, we went back to Camp to spend awhile in sleep. Each of us rolled up in our blanket beside an- other on the floor, using our shoes as pillows-but that didnlt matter for we were so tired it took little imagination to make us think we were on feather beds. Very soon dreams took the place of imagination and We were birds flying over those beautiful mountains with every peak our home. The next morning the lleecy clouds were all around us and we were not able to get a glimpse of the sunrise as we had hoped, but in a short time the clouds began to disappear enough for the sun to peep through and transform the scene into one of heavenly beauty. We had seen Mitchell under ideal weather conditionsg indeed, every hour of the day produced some change in the magical hues and shapes of the mountains. When the weather is fair and settled they are clothed in blue and white and print their whole outline on the clear evening sky. Sometimes when the rest of the land- scape is cloudless they seem to gather a hood of gray vapor about their summits, which in the last rays of the setting sun will glow and light up like a crown of glory. We reached lllontreat late in the afternoon with many blistered heels, sunburnt noses, still joints-tired, happy and convinced that we had had one of the most wonderful experi- ences of a life time.
