" Joyfully I follow laughter ' s path, And now and then indulge in Math. " Elizabeth, the acknowledged beauty of the class of ' 18 and also of Q. C, came to us as a full fledged Senior and brought with her that inde- finable air of supeiiority of viewpoint which is acquired only by those who have drained the cup of student life thiough the first undergraduate years. Elizabeth is a good sport and always willing to enter with zest into any phase of college life. Her fondness for Alwilda cannot be surpassed. Where one is, there will be the other also. Elizabeth needs no further eulogy, she speaks for herself ; all that she asks is but a patient ear. RECITAL OF MISS ELIZABETH BROWN ASSISTIOn BY Miss Lalla Tiiomason 1.

Corinna has been a loyal student at Queens College for four years, and with each year her influence and power have increased and be ii more felt. She has the voice of a nightingale, the disposition of an angol, and withal finds time for anything in which she may be of service. In the Gamma Sigma Society she is a devoted member, and excels in all branches of athletics, but is especiMlly fond of swimming in January. Kvery time she cannot be found on the campus she is sure to be at Maryon ' s or at Camp Greene singing for the soldiers. Corinna is an all-round Queens girl; and we shall certainly miss her.

Now the whole thing was over, my doom was cast. Tho ' I ' d hoped to be Senior up to the last, I was forced to give up in blank despair — Just then a ripple, a swirl in the air And close by ' neath the large pine tree A soldier rose up and nodded to me; He winked his eye ; he gave me a look, " Why all alone in this shady nook?

I was very happy in my home. Dad and I had lived there ever since I was born. Mother died when I was born, and for a long time Dad almost forgot that I had a claim on his heart. One day he found me out in the yard playing. I looked so much like mother that he gathered me up in his strong arms, and opened his big heart to me, and I have been there ever since. My Dad was a very busy man. You see he worked for our govern- ment. That meant that he had very little time for me. Because over here in this little province we were always having trouble. We were so small that some of our fond neighbors were always trying to make war on us, or get money or land from us. One morning at breakfast Dad said to me: " Daughter, would you like to go to Von with me? " " Would I like it? ' " Well, I am obliged to go on some state business. There is to be a military ball on Tuesday, and you can go to that. You can lounge around the hotel and amuse yourself by reading and thinking while I am work- ing. There is just one thing, dear, don ' t tell who youare. " I flashed a quick look at him, but he went on smiling, — " You will enjoy yourself more if everybody does not know that you are my daughter. You see my business is very important. Very, very import- ant, and if we are known, it will cause quite a bit of notoriety. " He kissed me and went out. I was wild with excitement at the thought of the military ball. I flew around getting ready like a girl of sixteen. As a matter of fact I was twenty-two, but I had never had a serious thought in my life. I was quite tired when we landed in Von, but very happy. Dad engaged some large rooms on the front of the hotel. My room opened on a small balcony, which was covered with thick vines. It took me all of the next day to get settled, because I had left Netta at home, and I did not know how to do things very well. I was so taken up with myself that it was almost time to dress for the ball before I realized that I had not met any one. In fact, I had not been out of my rooms except for my meals. I had quite a picnic dressing, but at last I got ready. When Dad came in for me he said I was beautiful, but love is blind you know. I had noticed that Dad was quiet, and looked a little tired ; but I thought that the light and gayety of that ball room enough to a bring a dead man t o life. The music was intoxicating, and I had just had a most wonderful dance (22) I with a young officer. I was just bowing my thanks to him when Dad rushed madly up to me, and carried me out of the ball room. His face was very white and strained, and his eyes were very serious. " Helen ! Our province has declared war on Von. It is my place and my duty to be in Bours tonight. It will be very hard and very dangerous for me to try to cross the line tonight. I hate to leave you here alone, but CiOd will take care of you. Come tomorrow. He gathered me in his arms lor a second, and then I saw him rush down the steps, spring into a carriage and rush away into the darkess. I felt as though some one had struck me a blow on the head. My heart skipped a beat, and all the lights went out. How I ever got back to my rooms was more than I ever knew. I went out on the balcony to think. Bours had declared war on Von. I was alone in a nest of enemies. I knew my father loved me better than his own life. Nothing but some big cause, the greatest cause on earth, could have made him leave me alone. My heart was beating so I could not breathe. I wanted to run, I wanted to scream; I was afraid. Then something happened; a wave of warm blood seemed to flow from my heart out to all parts of my body. I drew myself up to my full height. My father was a man, and soldier — he had done his duty, and he expected me to do mine. I raised my hands above my head in a gesture of prayer. The breeze caught my handkerchief and carried it over the balcony. I looked down to see where it had gone, and to my surpries saw the young officer with it in his hand. I drew back, but not in time, he had seen me. It took only a second for him to climb up that thick vine. " Allow me, please? " " Oh, thanks. " But instead of my handkerchief his fingers closed over my wrist. ' ' Please, please, lady, tell me your name? " " I am your enemy, sir. " 1 closed the door, and left him. I heard him drop to the ground, and I peeped out just in time to see him kiss my hand- kerchief, and put it in his inside pocket. Then I am sure mv heart did something it had never done before. I ran across the room to the window, put the shade up, and — my ey ' i foil on a very beautiful woman sitting on the arm of a large chair. ' in which was seated an officer. There was something about that scene that held me. Was it the way she was dressed, or was it the fact that he was drinking? I could not say just what it was. I tried to turn away, but 1 was held as by the charm of a snake.. Suddenly it dawned on me that I had seen her somewhere before. She was certamly like, — my gracious, vu ' " turned to look in the mirror. Yes, she looked like me. When I looked again the shade was down. I was very glad; and I .set to Work to oack, and get ready to leave the next morning. Oh, if I had known then who she was, how good she was, and yet how (2.0 bad! I did not know until long after, when Dad told me all about it; nf how that very night she shot that officer in order to get the papers that saved our province from ruin ; of how, when she heard her country ' s call, the same wave of patriotism that later came over me, came over her. The authorities sent her word that that officer had maps of our forts, plans of all our defenses, which meant absolute ruin to us. They told her rhat she was the only person that had any chance in the world of getting those papers. She had planned to make the officer drunk, and then get the little book, out of his inside pocket, that had the combination of the vault, where the plans and maps could be found. She thought he was asleep when she took the book out of his pocket. She had the vault open and her hand almost on the papers when something caused her to look around. He had risen and was standing with a gun leveled on her. She made one cat-like spring at him. In the struggle the gun went off. He was killed. He fell in the door of the vault. She pulled him inside, banged the door shut, pnd fled with the papers. His body was not found until twelve-thirty that night. That gave her several hours before the law was put on her track. Officers were soon after her. They wanted her not only for the murder, but also as a spy. I had gone down very early to see about getting my passport. There was a long line of waiting people ; I had to wait my turn. I told them my name, and they gave me my papers without any trouble. I had gone into a little side room to wait. I was surprised to see the beautiful woman of the night before come in. Her face was a study; it had disappointment and fear mingled on it. She looked up and saw me. She came right upto me and said : " Have you got your passports? " " Yes. " ■ " Do you love your country? " " Very much. " " Enough to make a big sacrifice for it, perhaps d ' e for it? " " Gladly! " " Then give me your passport. I have been turned down. They know me too well here. " " Give you my passnort, why? " " 0, iDlease quick, I haven ' t time for words, but it means defeat or victory to your country whether I get there tonight or not. I have given my word of honor not to trust any one with my message. 0, you must, you must. " I closed my eyes for a moment and th ' iUQ-ht. I could see my dear home in smoking ruins. A feeling of love for it came over me that T had never had before. I wanted to do something big for my land. A sob shook me from head to foot, my frivolous girlhood dropped from me like a (24) cloak ; when I opened my eyes I stood a bigger, nobler woman. I handed her my papers without a word. " This will not be easy for you. Men will insult you. But only until twelve o ' clock, after that I will be safe, and you may take back your name, Vera is mine. " She passed into the line of waiting passengers. I came after her in a few minutes. But when I was asked for my papers, and had none, 1 was sent back into the province. The familiarity of the men was dread- ful. I was taken into a dance hall and put down at a table, with some officers and some dancers. I instinctively knew that Vera had been the belle of this place. It was up to me to play my role. I was almost choked to death on my cigarette smoke, and the wine 1 could not touch. I could have stood all this had not one of the men put his arm around me, and tried to kiss me. I screamed and ran madly from the room. Just before I reached the door I stumbled, and would have fallen had not someone caught me. I raised my terror-stricken face to gaze into the calm blue eyes of the young officer. The drunk man staggered forward and tried to take me out of his arms. With one hand he sent him back- ward over the table. Then to me he said : " Choose me, and I will take you away. " The next thing I knew I was in his room, and he was bending over me, disgust and disappointment on his handsome face. " So I see noV why you would not tell me your name. Ah, and I thought I loved you! " Dong. Dong, went the clock on the mantel twelve times. I sprang up. " I am, oh, I am not Vera. I am Helen— Helen Bayard. " " There was a knock at the door. Some officers filed in with a paper ordering the arrest and execution of " Vera. " The execution was to take place at six o ' clock in the morning. It was five minutes past twelve when father ' s door opened and Vera entered. " Here are your papers. Uncle Bernard. I have done my best. " " What ! " " Why yes, I hope you don ' t object to the Uncle? Of course, you don ' t know me. but no doubt you will remember your oldest brother Andre? He married my mother — she was a Spanish girl — and left her before I was born. My history you will find in Von. However, I was born here and lived here ten years. Mother taught me that this was home, and I love it. Good-bye. " " " But stay, stay, can ' t you stay? I will try and do for you some of the things that my brothpr would have done had he lived. " She threw back her head, and laughed a bitter laugh. " No, T have an engagement at six. " At five o ' clock I could not sit still another moment. I paced back and (25) forth. At five-thirty I went to the window, and looked out. I could see men in uniform moving about the yard. I drew back with a shudder At htteen minutes of six, Jacque placed my coat around me. " Come, we are going to run for it. I will not see you shot for some- thing you did not do. " " Are you crazy, man? Don ' t tempt me like that. Go, and leave me alone. You make my duty twice as hard. " " No, Helen, I love you, I can ' t see you shot. I will not. You did not do it — come! " If love were the only thing, I could follow you to the world ' s end ; tor you hold my heart in the hollow of your hand! But is love the only thing ; Honor binds a woman, too, Jacque. My honor lies in being true 1.0 my country and my word. " The door was flung open and— Vera stepped in. She put me quickly behind a curtain. The soldiers filed in one by one. She stood up straight and still. Her face was very white. Vera went out at the head of the little line. , }. half-fainting into Jacque ' s arms. I tried to shut out all sound but in the distance I heard the dull thud of the guns. Minnie B. Doar. (26) Coi legeAct vims.

But worst of all, she ' s specializing in chemistry and will work in Lab. with us. Her experiments will make ours fade into oblivion! Terry — Oh, forget it, Sue! You ' ve one consolation, she certainly hasn ' t got you beat in looks. Sue — Oh, hasn ' t she tho ' ? She ' s a perfect Greek goddess and regards her stay here as a favor to us poor mortals. She ' s already finished me! Terry (laughing) — Oh, Sue, bound for you to fix it. What did you do? Sue — Oh, I was very polite. I knew she was from Davidson, so I asked her about all the boys. Heaven! If you could only have seen the look she gave me! Terry — Poor child! We will have to get even with her for wounding your vanity. Let ' s see! What experiment can we try on her? (Think).

Augusta— Good morning, girls. Have you commenced your work yet? I ' m at the most interesting experiment at present. (Excitedly) Oh! by the way, girls, I have just heard we are to have a chemistry professor from the University— Professor Channing — with us this week. Terry— Oh, Augusta! Tell us about him. Augusta Well, he has accomplished some most remarkable experi- ments. I have been interested in his work for quite awhile. Sue Oh, Augusta, what does he look like? Good looking? Augusta (primly) — I am not interested in the professor ' s personal appearance, Susan. (Knock heard at the door). Augusta — There he is now, I presume. Come in. (Enter Professor Channing). Channing — Good morning! Could you tell me where I could find Miss Morgan? Augusta — I am Miss Morgan. Channing— Glad to know you. Miss Morgan. I have heard of your splendid work and asked to be given the privilege of working with you, if you will consent. Augusta— Why I should love to— eh! (Glancing at Sue and Terry). That is, I should be very glad of the opportunity. (Turning to Sue and Terry) Professor Channing, meet my assist- ants, Misses McNeil and Spencer. (Sue and Tess bow). Sue (casually) — We have finished our experiments so will leave it with you. (Exeunt) (Curtain) (40) ACT III. Place — Same as Act II. Time — Two weeks later. Sue — Hasn ' t she changed tho ' ?

Channing — This morning, young ladies, we will attempt experiment forty-four. Miss Augusta, please hand me that bottle of oil with the sodium in it. Now, watch closely! I shall drop a piece of this sodium in a pan of water, hold a test tube over the burning sodium and collect the escape — (Loud explosion, Channing falls back). Tess — Chris! You ' re not hurt! Channing (bitterly) — Not hurt! Oh, not at all! What on earth did you ever get me into this scrape for anyhow? You know, I don ' t know anything about chemistry. Augusta (quietly) — So I understood from the first. For whom was this charming escapade arranged? Tess — Oh, Augusta, you, of course! We might as well ' fess up. Pro- fessor Channing is Christine Clark! I ' m as sorry as I can be, truly Augusta. Sue (mournfully)— This has cured me. I ' ll never try such an experi- ment again! Augusta (beginning to laugh) — Oh, I understand now! So it was an experiment on me! Why you see I — (blushing) Well, I guess it ' s time for me to do some ' fessing on my own accord. I ' ve known the real Pro- fessor Channing quite a while, and, well, we ' re going to undertake a life- long experiment in June. (Curtain) (50) Magazine StafF Ihf ME MORI AM REV D K nOLS tOH O.

(57) Editorial T THE very beginning of the year the members of the Junior and Senior Classes had a joint meeting and elected editors for the publication of a Queens College Annual. We said vehe- mently that in spite of all opposition we would succeed, and that such a volume as had never been produced before by any school in the world, should be the result of our labor. Very conscientiously we began and for a while things went smoothly, but soon barriers began to appear. We were first reproached on the ground that we should be unpatriotic if we spent so much money on an annual when the Red Cross and Students ' Friendship War Fund were calling so persistently for aid. Next, for the first time in the history of Queens College the English Department began the publication of a monthly magazine, " The Princess, " and we were strongly urged to abandon our proposed Annual and bend all our efl ' orts, literary and financial, to its development. We did not entirely give up, but instead of a regulation Annual, we compromised on a year book, and have made it as truly as was possible a record of Queens College for 1917-18. It is now in your hands and we ask you to judge it most kindly. Our advertisers, the best people in Charlotte, desire your support. Those who refused us ads are too stingy to give you the worth of your money, so kindly refuse them your patronage. It will pay you. For Miss Tillett and Miss Evans, we have only praise. They have been all that is helpful, kind, and generous, and we can truthfully say that v ithout their invaluable aid, our Year Book would be only a thing of dreams. To Dr. Evans, too, we owe much gratitude for his kindness in allowing us to miss classes in order that pictures might be made. He has been a " friend in time of trouble. " In conclusion, let us wish for you great prosperity, and may you assist us in making this the forerunner of a splendid Annual for 1919.
