AX IRVING RECITAL.
A pleasant evening was enjoyed by tbe
students and faculty of Virginia College
bist Saturday, November 0, tbe occasion
being an Irving recital, before the school,
by tbe junior students in literati: re and
elocution. The biographical sketch pre?
pared and rend by Miss Mary Davenport
was good. Miss Mamie Straus' paper
upou the literary career of Washington
Irving was an appreciative criticism of
his writings. Miss Daisy Stuart gave a
vivid sketch of Peter Stuyvesant that vig?
orous old Dutch governor, whom Irving
has so humorously detcribed in Knicker?
bocker's History of New York. Tbe ta
1110119 legend of Blecpy Hollow (adapted
from the Sketch Book) was given with
thrilling effect by Miss Bessio Betuer.
Of the many charming Moorish tales and
traditions which Irving has perpetuated
in "The Alhnmbni," ihere are.none more
bewitching than the legeuds of "The
Three Beautiful Priucesses," and - The
Ross of the Alhambra." Miss Fra/.er
Walsh told the tale of "The Three Beauti?
ful Princesses" with a freedom and ani?
mation which held her audience with
deep interest for twenty minutes. "The
Ross of the Alhauibra1 as related by Miss
Luclle Holman was no less entertaining
and was equally successful in its rendi?
tion. The evident appreciation of the
audience was very encouraging to tho
teachers who planned and tho students
who executed the programme, for it is
their wish to give such literary recitals
before the school every month. Miss
Auuspaugh, teacher of elocution, aims in
all her work to awaken in tbe students a
love for the best literature and to develop
in them the power of literary Interpreta?
tion. Good reading is the foundation
upon which all her elocution wotk is
based. Miss Sawyer,teacher Ot literature,
recognizes the value of vocal Interpreta?
tion as an effective and powerful assist?
ant in all literary work. This appreci?
ation of tho vital connection between the
studies of literature and elocution is as it
should be-, and Virginia College cannot
emphasize this truth too sttougly. The
ivriter tins long maintained that no col
lego should grant a c iplonia in'English
to a student who conld not give Intelii
gent vocal Interpretation to the best lit?
