The popularity contest held the campus in speechless awe for several weeks, for really it was very
hard to tell just in what direction the finger of decision would point. However, the charming Miss
Alberta Franklin of the Sigma Phi Psi club and Mr. Cain Lee of the Supreme Circle club won first places.
Miss Lizzie D. Young, soprano, accompanied by Miss Marie J. Brooks, appeared in a most artistic
recital january 23. Miss Young was assisted by Miss Laura Mae Edmunds, who gave a group of piano

Crawley and Mr. Taylor Thomas as detectives, "Hunger", with Mr. Charles Neal as the "Beggar",
Miss Mildred Robinson as "Poetess", Mr. Gale Chambers as the "Man", and Miss Sara B. Sublett as
the "Girl"g "The Reference", with Miss La Leta Lee as "Miss Edgecomben, Mr. Ned Rawls as f'Philip
Somers", and Miss Margaret Taylor as "Olivia Chillingworth"g and "All the VVorld Loves a Lover",
with Mr. Levi Watkins, Miss Avis Hatcher, Miss Doris Hill, Miss Nelda McLinn, and Miss Eloise
Bacon taking star places.

The events of the winter quarter came to a dramatic close when the Delta Tau Iota club presented
a colorful musical revue, "Good Morning Glory" on March 6.
The spring quarter was marked with an array of color and song as the season of the school year
for the many proms and club festivals in the form of night clubs, rose-tea gardens, beach parties, and
block dances. However, this quarter was not entirely given over to frivolity.
One cf the outstanding events of the school year was the appearance of our most honored Congress-

audience could not decide which class of music it preferred. This was the last appearance of the music
department as a whole, and it proved a very fitting climax.

as guest artists of NVLAC every Thursday afternoon from 5:45 to 6:00 P.M.

Tennessee State College Hymn
In the land of golden sunshine,
By the Cun1lJerland's fertile shore,
Stands the school for greater service,
One that we adore,
Alma Mater, how we love theel
Love thy white and blue.
May we strive to meet thy mandates
With faith 1hat's true.
Many come to thee for knowledge,
Come from East, North, South and XVest,
For they know that thou dost oller
Such a rich bequest.
Alma Mater, all thy children
XVorship at thy shrine:
May the God of nations bless thee
Wfith gifts divine!
Send forth sons lnoth strong and valiant,
Send forth daughters wise and true,
Filled with hope and dauntless courage,
Motives sane and true,
May she lift her head toward heaven,
Honor country, God and thee!
