TAZEWELL AT THE UNIVER?
I he following account o fthe visit

nection with the reading' and de?
buting contests is taken from the
current issue of the High School pa
.n ir, "The Pcppety-Bp":
I asl Thursday morning live Taze?
well delegates to the Literary Con?
test b i t for Charlottcsvillc, stop-1
ping in Lynchburg long enough for
the feminine members of the aggre?
gation to purchase a summer ward?
robe. Owing either to the scarcity of
i hoes in Eastern Virginia or the un?
usual diinensons of Katherines feet,
she visited fully twelve shoe stores
before she finally secured a pair. Af?
ter shopping for three hours. Eleanor
. u rged hot and tired, but truimph
ant, currying a bottle of shoe polish
(which, by tin- way, she as promptly
lost or drank.) About seven thirty we
descended upon Charlottcsvillc. Mr.
Graham Preston met us at the train
and, as we were green and from the
country, he had his hands full from
that time forth. From the station we
then went str lj ' ' ! Ponbody Hall
in reg . the approaching "fru
c:is." We were also assigned rooms:
the girls with the Notable Mrs. Kel?
ly, tlie boys a* the l;. U A. Frnter
nity House. After removing several
layer.; ..I' N. and W. coal dust, Mr.
? Preston took us down town for a
I much belated supper. Then we wont

I mcnsely, altho, strange to say, not

Alter a much needed rest, we
, a rose Friday morning feeling as tho
I they could conquer the world. We
i break fasted at the cafeteria and spent
? the remainder of the morning in
i spooling the University and camps.
I when visiting the museum we
I saw a most astonishing animal about
I fifteen feet high, and we exclaimed
on the it mazing resemblance it bore
I to our talented banjo picker. When
Iwalking to lunch we were very much
I impressed by a large statute in front
of Cabell Hall, but when we went
I to examine it. we couldn't tell just
I what it was supposed to represent.
: Eleanor suggested that it. was Gnb
j riel blowing his rap. Jesse thought
that it was Little Boy Blue. (We af?
terwards found that it was Plato.)
By this lime Kathcrine, more for?
tunate than the rest of us, had cap?
tured a beau, and really she was not
seen much by the other delegates af?
At one o'clock we had the privilege
of hearing Lord and Lady Astor
speak in the amphitheatre. We re?
gret to say that Eleanor did not
seem to be taking advantage of this
privilege However this was possibly
due to the good looking read-headed
gentleman who was her escort.
After these addresses the first pre?
liminaries were held in Pea body Hall
and Minor Hall, or the law buildings,
all Tazewell contestants being vic?
Hut Eleanor, suffering from u loss
of memory, lust her pocket, book.
Then began a frantic senrch accom?
panied by many moans and groans.
The purse was finally unearthed from
a bench in the law building. Eleanor
breathed a sigh of relief and ap?
pointed McDonald as her official
pocket book carrier from that timo
on. In tho second preliminaries and
semi-finals that night, Tazewell was
not so fortunate, for only the girl
render was left to represent us.
Saturday morning we went to the
stale High and prep track meet ana
Saturday afternoon we visited Mpnte
Carlo. The finals were of course helo
.Saturday night in Cabell Hall. El?
eanor winning the state reading con?
test, for which she was awarded a
gold watch at a reception later on.
Eleanor says that the watch was
small compensation for the terrible
ordeal of the formal .presentation on
a raised platform before a thousand
or more people.
