TWO NEW INSTRUCTORS AT STATE COLLEGE Elbert Kincaid Takes lustructorship in History Department and Miss Alice Walden in Music Department The second semester opens with two new instructors added to the teaching force of the State College. Mr. Elbert Kincaid, a former gradu ate of the college, has an assistant liistructorship in history, taking the place made vacant by the leave of absence granted to Dr. F. A. Colder, who is pursuing historical investiga tion in St. Petersburg, Russia. Mr. Kincaid did two years of work at Harvard, taking the Masters degree the first, and lacking a little of earning his doctorate the second. In the second year he was a student assistant at Harvard, did research and collaboration on historical bibliography for Dr. Albert Bushnell Hart, and was elected instructor in history at Clark University, Wor cester, Mass., a position which he declined. Prior to his coming to W. S. C. several years ago, his home town was Palouse. Miss Alice R. Walden has begun her work as instructor In piano at the college, taking the place of Miss Sawyer, resigned. Miss Walden comes exceptionally well recommended, both as a soloist and a teacher. She is a graduate of the University School of Music at Madison, Wisconsin, and studied later with Teichmueller at Leipzig, Germany. She has devoted three years to concert work and has had extensive teaching experience, her last position being with the Kansas State Normal School at Emporia. A few press comments follow: Post, Seattle, Wash.—Miss Alice R. Walden is a pianist who combines an excellent technique with a fine musical understanding. Her inter pretation is marked by purity of tone and artistic expression, showing per sonality and culture. World, Omaha, Nebr.—Miss Wal den has astounding power and wields It with an ease that is bewildering, and she also has an exquisite dainti ness and delicacy of touch. State Journal, Madison, Wis.— Miss Walden's recital was an artis tic triumph. Having ample tech nical facilities, a refined style in phrasing and an infallible memory, she is enviably equipped for the art of piano playing.
