Miss Hill placed one of her solo
records on the machine and then
played the composition so much in
unison with the record, that someone
turned to me and asked if the artist

delighted as it well may have been.
To the average audience there is
something more pleasing about such
a demonstration than there is about
an ordinary concert. The modern
mind likes practical proof and evi
dence of supposed facts. To some
souls, art is too ethereal. The fact
that it can be caught, from the clouds
and made, like electricity to go
through a material medium" before it
reaches them, gives it the contact
with reality which makes it more in

What the Parent-Teacher As
In view of the fact that many of
the parents, teachers and pupils, of
the Edgefield High School apparently
do not have a full aid complete
knowledge of the real purposes and
objects of the association, it may be
well at this time to call to the atten
tion of all those interested in the
Edgefield High School two articles of
the Constitution, which fully set
forth such purposes.
Article II provides:
"The object of this association
shall be to improve conditions of the
school life of pupils of the Edgefield
High Sohool, by promoting coopera
tion between the home and the school
and by working constructively for
the moral, physical, and intellectual
improvement of all students,"
Article IV provides:
"Any person interested in the aims
of the Association may become a
The real intent and purpose of the
association, while fully set forth in
Article II, may need a little explana
tion. It is not the desire nor intent
of the association to have the rela
tionship which is brought about
through its meetings between teach
ers and parents to be used i a means
of injecting home discipline into the
school nor home discipline into the
home. Each class of discipline should
be, and is, a thing to be administered
in its proper place, and it is highly
improbable that either the teachers
or. the parents would attempt to take
advantage of any confidences which
might be secured by virtue of their
'coming into contact with each other
through the association meetings.
>^It can not be denied, however, that
the personal equation so established
between the parents and the teachers
will most - materially help, and in
many cases will absolutely effect that
full .understanding of each other
which should exist between the pupils
and the teachers.
. The parents do not join and take
active part in the activities of the
association for the purpose of keep
ing tab on their children, but become
members with the idea of assisting
their children through that close and
true comradeship which should al
ways exist between parent and child.
Likewise, the teachers do lot par
ticipate in the activities of the asso
ciation for any purpose save that of
establishing such personal equation
between themselves and the parents
as will place them in a position tb un
derstand more thoroughly the indi
vidual characteristics of their pupils.
Since reading the above, don't you
want to become a member? We need
and want you.
The first Thursday afternoon in
each month is the time of meeting.
Mark it on your calendar so as not
to forget it and let us have the larg
est attendance yet at our next meet
ing, which will be the last before this

and cooperation, for sometimes we
feel like" the folks, especially our wo
men, think the 75 million is growing
to be rather a hobby with me. I am
frank to admit its interest lies heav
ily on my mind. But if our members?
.the Baptists will prayerfully submit,
themselves, all will be well and the
pledges will be duly paid. The crisis
through which we are - passirfg, only
means a blessing in disguise. Those
who live nearest to their Lord, keep
ing under the shadow of His protect
ing wings, will win, because of the
promises left to those who trust Him.
So let's think more of our duty to.
Him and less of the world, then the
cloud that now is dark, will dawn in?
to the brightest day.
