Monday evening in the college
auditorium, a delightful occasion
attracted many friends and students,
being tho graduating music recital
of Miss Sallie May Miller, very gra
ciously assisted by Miss Thelma
Bailey on the violin.
A number of accomplished oian
ists have received their instruction
from the gifted musicians connected'
with the S. C. C. I., but instruction
does not make the musician-the
gift must be inherent-and yet the
gifted student can bot become pro
ficient unless ably instructed. On
the occasion of this music recital
there wa6 abundant evidence that
both requirements had been lavishly
Miss Miller has been a student of
music here for several years and in
her first term, gained for herself
the reputation of possessing unusual
musical gifts. She is a very gra
cious, refined and pretty young wo
man, and in every way titted to
adorn any occasion. This mnsicil
accomplishment will be an added
.barm lo her promising young life.
In every number on Monday
evening, all of which were difficult
selections, and played only by ar
tists. Miss Miller in style and tech

indication of the musician. The

Bryan's Wifeless Dinner.
At a dinner some time ago, given
by the Secretary and Mrs. William
J. Bryan to the diplomats at
Washington in honor of Ambassa
dor Bryce on the eve of his return
to England, nnfermented grape
juice was substituted for wine
which is usually si-rved on state oc
sations. The incident was imme
diately seized upon by critics the
country over as an unprecedented
"break", and the comments called
forth a statement from .Mr. Bryan
in which he explains how tho''toe
total" customs of his house have
been observed and how they will
continue thus in his official rela
tions with the government. |f
Mr. Bryan does not drink wine ?
and he does not propose that it j
should be served his gue.-ts, no|<
matter what the custon: or the oc
casion. He is not attempting to
establish official precedent only in
so-far as the custom effects the
house of Bryan.
Notwithstanding the criticism
the "wineless dinner" has provok
ed, at hume and abroad, the exam
ple will be far reaching in its influ
ence for temperance.
Here is Mr. Bryan's state
"We do not intend to magnify,
by mentioning it, the importance of
the non-use of wine at the dinner
to Ambassador Bryce Monday night,
but as the papers have made, some
inaccurate reference to the mat
ter the fact might as well be
"This was the first dinner which
we have given the members of the
diplomatic corps, and therefore the
first time when we came into con
flict with the social customs of
serving wine at dinner. The seven
other ambassadors then in the city
and their ladies were invited to meet
Ambassador and Mrs. Bryce and as
all the gentlemen guests present
were from foreign countries I
thought it proper to explain to them
the reason for our failure to con
form to what seems to have been
customary in the matter. Believ
ing that the issue should be met
frankly in the beginning, I told
them, when we sat down to the ta
ble, that Mrs. Bryan and I had been
tee-totalers from our youth, as were
our parents before us, and had nev
er served liquors at our table; that
when the president was kind
enough to tender me the portfolio
of state I asked him whether our
failure to serve wine would be any
embarrassment to the administra
tion and be generously left the
matter to our discretion.
"I suggested that I thought it
unfair to assume that those coming
to us from abroad would judge
us harshly, as being unwilling to
tolerate the maintenance of a tra
ditional custom, and expressed the
hope that our friendship would be
made so apparent to them and our
hospitality so cordial that they
would overlook this weakness in
us, if they regarded it as a weak
ness. My remarks were applauded
by the company, and we never spent
a more enjoyable evening.
"That is all there is to the mat
ter and we consider the incident
closed and the custom established
so far as we are concerned."-^-Lau
