Women's Clubs
Demand Gush
And Eye-Wash
BY RUTH MILLETT ....
Women’s clubs in the United
States are “lapsing more and
more into gush and eye-wash”
says Ferdinnand Tuohy, writing
for “Britannia.” Mr. Tuohy of
fers as a solution the divorce of
social clubs from improvement
clubs. ?
Anybody who expects women
to get rid of the social side
of improvement clubs doesn’t
know women.
It’s just natural for women
to make a social occasion out of
any shared undertaking.
No matter what weighty mat
ter Madam President plans to
bring up at club meeting, she is
as much concerned with what
she is going to wear when she
presides as what she is going to
say.
And many a club has found
out from the day it decides
to stop serving refreshments at
tendance at meetings falls off
alarmingly.
Something or Them
No matter how earnest their
purpose when women organize
to work together, they just have
to make it a social occasion.
They’ll work and often work
hard for any good cause. But
they want to get something out
of it for themselves. And what
they want is some social life.
Make an improvement club
all improvement and no gush
and eye-wash,” and the im
provement quickly loses a lot of
its members.

Teen-Age
Tattler
By Beth Hams*
Just two more days and it will be here! Yes, I am speaking of
the approaching Dramatics club play, ‘‘Seven Sisters.” It's really
going to be a big hit and it has more fastmoving scenes than any
play ever to be on our stage. Being a little curious as to how the
cast was doing, I stopped in on one of their practices the other day
and was amazed to see how well they were coming along. The
stage directors were adding a few touches to the already decorated
scenes and I noticed Ethel Pendleton, one of the student directors,
finishing up one side of the walls. Jack Shytle was busy hammer
the door and other odd things
together. Everyone was pitching
right in to help and it really
looked nice. The cast has been
practising every afternoon until
very late and sometime at night.
The costumes arrived Friday
and, of course, the members of
the cast were excited over their
attire. There were such remarks
as, “Oh! My costume is too little,”
or, “Tres charmante” (in English,
“Very charming”.) The costumes
are brightly colored peasant
ones and the men are dressed in
high collars and large ties, the
Hungarian style. The colorful
play will get underway Friday
night at eight in the high school
auditorium.
It really was a lot of fun”.
This is the ram ark one of the
freshman was heard saying as
he left the Freshman Frolic Sat
urday night. Miss May was in
charge of all games and some
proved to be a little rough. I
don’t mean to criticise the
games, but if you had been
there you would know what I
mean. One particular game that
everyone enjoyed was one in
which the girls got into a circle
and the bqys made a circle
around them. The girls went
clockwise and the boys counter
clockwise. When the music stop
ed you had to find your partner.
Of course, you all know
a straight line is the shortest
distance between two points and
so the center of the ring was
the way everyone went to get
his or her partner. Mr. and Mrs.
Hamilton joined in with the
games and they, too, found it a
wee bit rough, but fun. Miss
May had dancing games, volley
ball games and numerous other
kind. Punch and cookies were
served and the gym was beauti
fully decorated in bright color
ed paper. This party was just
for the freshmen, but the social
marshals were in charge of help
ing Miss May so they were the
only upperclassmen admitted.
When Mr. Chase announced the
end of the dance, there were
cries of dissatisfaction. I believe
that this was the biggest affair
that has ever been held in the
high school and the freshmen
really showed up in a big way.
Again I am proud to say that
two more of last year seniors
have been placed in the hall of
fame by being elected class of
ficers. They are Ann Jordon and
Patty Jones, who have recently
been elected president and sec
retary, respectivly, of the fresh
men class at Flora Macdonald
in Red Springs. Congratulations
Ann and Patty and keep up the
good work.
