Music Department " The man that hath no musil in himself nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treason, stratagem and spoil, " — Shakfspeare. REVECCA COLLEGE was established tor the purpose of training young men and women for a life of service and usefulness. A preparation that will enable them to go at God ' s call as messengers to all parts of the world. Our leaders understand that in order to have a well-balanced curriculum, music must be included, and so provision was made for a Music Department, which took in both instrumental and vocal instruction. Music is a very important factor in our educational centers today. " Music is life, " wonderful and vibrating. It energizes the greatest machine in the world, the human machine. Music and its influence in the life cannot be separated, for it is a vital factor in the home, the school, and the church. Every true home is one in which there is music. The home ties are strengthened by memory of the old songs in which every member of the family took part. Music has held a very important place in the church ever since its foundation. During its earliest history, Paul, in writing to the Ephesians, used these words: " Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord. " Matthew also says, " And when they had sung an hymn they went out into the Mount of Olives. " We see even in those days that the true followers of Christ found consolation and inspiration in music. However, there can be no musical church until the people themselves are inspired to take part in the services. People do not go to church to be sung at; they go to sing. John Wesley had the right idea. Perhaps one of the reasons why some of the churches are dying out is that there is " giving out " upon the part of so few of the singers. Let the choir hold up the musical standards, but we should not forget that worship means participation, forth putting, giving out. As for music in the school, that is also very important. If during the first years in school the child is taught the best songs, then as progress is made an appre- ciation of the best type of music may be instilled into their minds. As the " public school music " system is developed, it will be possible to give even more efficient training and music will be a still greater factor in the school. The road to success in music is practice. Life has along it so many grounded rocks, that, where discouragement threatens, all we need to do is to plant our feet on a higher hold and lift ourselves to a more invigorating atmosphere. 4 '

Expression XPRESSION is the manifestation oi life, and speaking in some form is vitally neces- sary for the assimilation of truth and the awakening to a consciousness of personal power. A free people most be a race of speakers. The perversion or neglect of ora- tory has always been accompanied by the degradation of freedom. Since the invention of printing, the written word has been overestimated in education, and living speech has been greatly neglected. Recent discoveries of the necessity of developing the motor centers have revived interest in the living voice. The natural body is the masterpiece of God ' s material workmanship, that which places man at an infinite distance above all terrestrial creations is the marvelous power of his mind. The immaterial mind sets upon its throne and rules over the material man. The mind makes itself manifest through the human voice. The stalwart oak, a higher form in the realms ot nature, being capable of life, growth and death, may stand upon the hillside, its strong arms having wrestled successfully with a thousand storms, yet it rejoices not in its strength. The fowls of the air may find shelter amid its branches and the beasts of the field gather under its shade, yet it is unconscious of its benefactions, ft cares not whether the balmy breezes, soft sunlight, anil gentle rains of spring touch it into new- ness of life and clothe it in garments of verdant beauty, or the blighting blasts and freezing frosts of chill December disrobe it and turn its bare arms to the wintry winds. It rejoices not in life, it weeps not at death. It is altogether unconscious. It cannot speak. I think I love and reverence all arts nearly equally, only putting my own just a little above the others; because in it I recognize the union and culmination of them all. To me it seems when God conceived the world, that was Poetry; He formed it, and that was Sculpture; He colored it, and that was Painting; He peopled it with living, speaking beings, and that was the grand, divine, eternal Drama. Home Economics HE aim of the Home Economics course is to train young women in the best methods of scientific home-making, for the health and improvement of society, that the future generations may reach a higher level than those who have preceded them. The improvement of the human race, mentally, morally and physically, is made possible for the home. As the home is woman ' s workshop, man ' s resting place, the children ' s school, and the nation ' s hope, young women should be thoroughly trained in all branches pertaining to the home. The Home Economics Department at Trevecca College is in its infancy, but we see brighter days ahead. More stress will be laid upon this work in the future. Mcst of our young women are called to some special Christian work, and this practical training will make them more efficient. i 1
