to a Bible Conference? Was she going to be a Missionary? She had not thought of it before, but the somewhat sarcastic questions by those of that little town stuck in her heart to be considered. The consecration of the Association Secretaries, the earnrttness of the Bible teachers, the inspiring messages from missionary leaders were not to be forgotten. Our own Miss Laura Haygood, from China, was present, giving her forceful messages in such a quiet gentle way. No wonder that the young woman from LaGrange returned home with two definite purposes,—to organize a Y. W. C. A., and if God permit, to become a foreign missionary. At L. C, the faculty and- students were rather indifferent to Association work, knowing very little about it, but an organization was started with thirty members, or more. There was a Bible class for personal workers, and a Mission Study % class—a very new thing then. But the very next year there was one hundred per cent membership of the teachers and students in the dormitory in the Association; also there was a town division meeting weekly at the noonhour, and at the end of that year, every dormitory student was a Christian and a church member. Each year LaGrange College has sent her delegates to the Summer Conference; many girls have become Christians and church workers; many more have become Volunteers, and as teachers, or missionaries, have found work in Cuba, Mexico, Brazil and Ch'na. Much of this has been due to our Y. W. C. A.. There is much glorious work ahead, we know. MISS MAIDEE SMITH.

"Our College "Y", one of the oldest Associations in women's colleges in the South, was a charter member, with a very few other Associations, of the (then called) Gulf States Division of the International Y. W. C. A., of the United States and Canada. Our faculty was represented on the Board of the Gulf States Division, this representative of our college later becoming a life-member of that Board. Meetings of the Board were then held in Atlanta. To go back to the beginning of our "Y" work in LaGrange, we must motion the visit to our school, in the spring of 1895, of Miss Annie Bradshaw, an International Y. W. C. A. Secretary, who told us of the first Summer Conference for Southern students (women) to be held at Rogersvillo, Tennessee, the following June. At the Synodical College, in (hat beautiful little mountain town, a LaGrange delegate sat among about forty owier teachers and students, representing a few Southern schools, all agreeing that the June weather was glorious, and that such inspiring meetings had never been held before. In the little town, however, opinions were divided. Many thought the Conference was purely to persuade young women to be missionaries, or definite Christian workers; others thought the meetings smacked too greatly of—horrible thought!—Woman's Rights! Twenty-seven year? ago', to be interested in Woman's R!ght3 (though that had no conncc '.Oil with ih's Conference, whatever), enough to ostracize one.

fieid. She is at present the head of ^he Education Department in the college. This particular department values her very highly, as she has done some special research work at Columbia University along all methods of practice teaching and normal training. Her ability and excellences in her knowledge of this work aro being wonderfully manifested in the courses she is offering for pupils desiring the pedagogical training. We are still more proud of her, on finding out that a recent article of hers on "Observation, Participation and Practice Teaching for a Liberal Arts College," has been accepted as one of the best of its kind ever written. It has been published in the monthly magazine of the "Educational Administration and Supervision." Her theories in this article have been accepted by some of the leading educators of America. Miss Bradfield is putting into practice special programs for Observation and Participation, which have been so skillfully arranged by her, among her pedagogical pupils. These plans of Miss Bradfield's have proven to be very successful. We feel confident our college, backed by her progressive spirit, will continue to make rapid strides along pedagogical lines.

thanks for this to Mr. Russell Brown, of Atlanta, who is a good friend of the college, and who has helped us in more ways than one. We take this space to thank him for his timely and much appreciated contribution to the Scroll.

The whole college household is divided up into sympathizers with either one side or the other. Who does not thrill at the remembrance of the annual Junior-Senior debate? What vivid pictures everybody has of the auditorium crowded to its greatest capacity, of the stirring music of the band as the debaters march in on separate sides, followed by their sympathizers! What vigorous yells rend the air, magnifying the "pep" and enthusiasm of the adherents of each side! This strong class spirit spurs the debaters on to do their best. For, backed by such loyalty, they forget the critical attitude of the judges, and the speakers, full of zeal for their respective sides, wax eloquent, becoming veritable "Patrick Henrys." It is truly "the thrill that comes once in a lifetime." For who would not be thrilled when she thinks of that beautiful Fuller E. Callaway loving cup, that is to be awarded the victors? The crown of laurel could not have possibly meant more to the ancient Greeks than this beautiful cup does to the modern L. C. girls. The Juniors have a mental picture of the cup further adorned with a bow of green and white ribbon, while the Seniors think a bow of purple and white ribbon is really the necessary finishing touch to this already beautiful cup. Each side is trying to uphold its colors which mean so much to the respective classes and from the great effort that is being put forth on both sides, this bids fair of being one of the best and most hotly contested debates in the history of LaGrange College.

WITH THE SENIORS As soon as the strenuous days of examinations were over, fortune, in the form of entertainments smiled upon the Seniors. Miss Ethel Pike entertained the class at her home on Park Avenue, on the evening of the 28th. Music, songs and games were features of the evening's entertainment. At the close of the evening delicious cream and cake were served. The guests included the members of the class and Misses Daugherty and Boozer, of the faculty. February 4, a most delightful weekend house party was given by Mrs. J. L. Johnson, of '86, for the Senior class. The party which was given Saturday evening marked an exceptionally bright spot in the career of the class. The decorations were in purple and white, the class colors. The favors were dainty little purple and white maidens, wearing caps and gowns. Progressive games were played, and in the midst of the fun delightful refreshments were served. The last, but by no means the least feature of the visit, was the birthday dinner given Sunday in honor of Miss Lura Frances Johnson. The table was beautifully decorated and bountifully loaded. Great was the excitement over blowing out the candles and cutting the cake. After vain attempts to miss their train by punctures, blow-outs, slow watches, etc., the guests safely departed en the 3:30 train for LaGrange.

While the Senioi-s were on their way to West Point, Saturday afternoon, the Juniors busied themselves with rummaging their trunks and wardrobes. Saturday evening revealed the secret of the afternoon's search. The Juniors attired in Senior caps and gowns, followed their sponsor into the dining hall very sedately and took places at the Senior table, appropriately decorated for the occasion. Throughout dinner these Junior lassies very skillfully did their part to supply a Senior class. Just before the students left the dining hall, Mr. Thompson, amid much applause, introduced the Seniors of '23. A telegram of congratulations from the seniors of '22 made the evening complete.


theless, they gained them. We just have to hand LaGrange High School the bouquets when it comes to playing basketball. The Freshmen squad, composed of "The Spruells," Dorminey, Braswell and Cowden, fought like young Amazons for the game; but the Fates were against us—and who can argue against these vengeful powers? But—laying all jokin' aside—our girls did mighty well, and we are proud of them. When one takes into consideration the facts that they were out of practice, were playing their first outside game, and were using boy's rules for the first time this season, they just can't help from admitting their spirit and determination. Yes, we are veritable Portias when it comes to defending the Freshmen class, any part, division, sub-division, property or organization belonging to it—'cause we jes' know. And now, people, we want you to take notice. The very next time this here Freshmen team goes out to play basket ball, she's going out to win— no doubt about it. The first team that heaves in sight will see V-I-CT-O-R-Y shining all over our faces so hard that if a fly were to land on any individual visage, it would skid and break its neck, presto! Nothing daunts us, and when LaGrange High School comes up for her return game, there's going to be a faint tinge of excitement in the atmosphere that surrounds this sacred hilltop. Verily and truly, we can't decide which is the best team any way— the Freshmen or the Varsity. So far we have been the Waterloo to every class squad on the hill (conceit!) and we simply can:t help being proud of it. Furthermore, we intend to make just as good an outside record as we have acquired on the campus. So to all would-be champions, we articulate these words: "Stop, Look and Listen," 'Cause the Freshmen team Sho'ly are comin.'—Selah.

Social events among the Freshmen contingent have been few and far between this month. The most momentous event of the past few weeks was the basket ball game between our team and the High School girls, which was pulled off the night of Friday, the tenth, in the new Higii school Miss Mattie Lou Wilson and Miss gymnasium. Velma Folds spent the week-end at The entire student-body turned out Miss Fold's home, in Carrollton. in flying colors, and with "pep" and enthusiasm galore, we marched hilariously into the place of combat.

THE MEZZOFANTIAN LITER- spirit that it is too good to be left And at last tiie judges go out of "The Scroll." It is evident With firm and steady tread, ARY SOCIETY To all Mezzos who have gone out from L. C. we send a challenge. Send us your present name, address, and occupation. Send us a contribution the Scroll. You, each and every one know how good it seemed to hear from home, or from friends, when you were school girla. Well, although we may be a little more flapperish than you were, we, too, like to hear from our homes and friends, and each new Mezzo considers each old Mezzo her friend. We are held together by the same ideals and standards that the Mezzofantian Literary Society has stood for since 1887, and so, we want to know what you are doing. We want you to help us, by telling us how you have gained success. We want you to tell us of your experiences, that we may follow in the paths in which you have led. We arc reminded of the story of the man and the tombstone. It was back in the good old days of horses and buggies, that a man, while driving through a cemetery, chanced to notice the inscription on one of the tomb stones. The inscription ran something like this: "As you are now, so once was I, As I am now, so will you be, Prepare for death, And follow me." The man stopped his horse, got out of his buggy, and with his knife carved the following: "To follow you, I'll not consent, Unless I know which way you went." Old Mezzos, if you would have the school girl Mezzos of today follow you, let us know which way you went. Our society is rather small this year. However, what we lack in quantity, we make up for in quality. How about helping us out with our quality by sending us a contribution for the Scroll? We need your support. Let us have it. Help us keep the Mezzo the grand old society that it has always been!

JRENIAN SOCIETY The only letter received from an Irenian of days gone by is so full of good cheer and characteristic Irenian

from the contents that the writer is still an Irenian 'thru and thru.' She has imparted much of her enthusiasm to the Irenian reporter, who wishes to quote ths letter verbatim. Dear "Miss Mary Lane":-rAlthough I have had the pleasure of knowing two Mary Lanes, you could not be either, as they are both married, but you are an Irenian and that is sufficient. If you care to know anything about me look me up. "An nie Mag Dunson," on the pictures in the "Prayer Hall," or ask Mr. Alwyn or Stella Bradfield. They can tell you anything you might want to know. As to the why of my writing, I have just received the first copy of "The Scroll," which so renewed my youth that I am enclosing a dollar for a dollar's worth, of "subscription" to the same. Also your "greetings" to the Irenians caused me to burst into rhyme in behalf of "old Irenians." Having spent seven years at old L. C, the college is very dear to me, and any advancement is always a cause of much rejoicing on my part. Good luck to "The Scroll," the Irenians and all the college girls. Cordially yours, ARGARET DUNSON DAVIS, LaGrange, Ga. I glanced but idly through "The Scroll"; My memories dormant lay and blurred, But chancing on that magic word, My muse awoke, aroused and stirred. That magic word—once more my soul Is flooded with a keen delight And thronging through my dormant brain Come memories of that gala night When Greek met Greek in firm array. What e'er might be their inward fright The Mezzos even flaunting black and gold Irenians, purple and white, And each in turn would take the stand Convincing sure as fate And hammer home those striking points To win the "Grand Debate" While loyal voices filled the air At each point driven down, Not only from the "College Girls" But all the boys in town,

Into each loyal throbbing heart. There comes that nameless dread. Your pulses beat, your hands turn cold, You tremble in your fright. You scarce can stand the agony And then oh, glorious sight; They're coming back, the time hi? come; Why will they be so slow? What makes them talk around the world ? Why can't they let you know ? And then a solemn breathless hush For the judge, with tact and grace, Says: "Though 'twas hard indeed to make a choice, The 'Irenians'' get first place." M. D. D.

Y. W. C. A. The Y. W. C. A. has been most fortunate in obtaining speakers for the Sunday vesper services during the month of February. We truly appreciate the advantages gained by hearing these messages from those already experienced in the work of service to others. On February 5, Rev. William B. Hays, rector of the Episcopal church of LaGrange, gave an excellent talk on the well-known words spoken by the Master, "Take up thy cross and follow me." He recalled to us not only the good rendered to others, but the satisfaction and joy that service brings to the follower himself. "Social Service" based on the scripture found in Matthew 25-34:46, among the last words spoken by Ohvint in his public ministry was the subject of the talk given at the college by Mrs. Ethel Dallis Hill, of LaGrange, Sunday, February 11. The message was delivered clearly and impressively and it is to be hoped that it caused sei-ious thought on the part of those who heard it. Interesting programs, which we hope may be carried out, have been planned for the remaining Sundays of the month. On the last Sunday in January, Mrs. Ethel Thomas, of Southwest LaGrange, gave "those present at the Y. W. C. A. service a glimpse into the life of the industrial world. Mrs. Thomas has visited mills all over the states and is widely known throughout the South. The talk was very interesing and made impressive the speaker's own personal experiences.

PROGRESSIVE SPECIALS The Specials are always doing some special work, so it is hard to tell of all the attractive things they make and do. We have succeeded in getting up quite a class in "National Art." Miss Black has named it thus, because we paint pictures, china and various other things for our future homes. In the Domestic Art classes the girls are making their spring and summer wardrobes. It certainly will be like a flower garden when the girls blossom out in all their spring finery. Four of the girls may tell you what the Domestic Science classes are doing. One of these classes served a breakfast. V/e have not heard of any one having acute indigestion, so we think the breakfast went off successfully. You may know for yourself what the Musical Department is doing, as we all enjoyed the recital given in the past month. I believe all the work of the Specials has been mentioned for this mor.th. So be sure and watch our progress in next month's Scroll.

The Sophomores met at the request of their president, to make plans for a Valentine party. When the Sophomores meet business is usually subordinated to pleasure and it chanced that the conversation drifted to the hardships of a college student. try Lane chimed in: "These teachers think we don't have one thing to do but work for them.

Well, it actually happened! And, my! didn't we feel dignified? But I am about to tell what it was that "actually happened." On Saturday night, February the fourth, while the Seniors were away on a week-end house party, we Juniors, thanks to the Seniors' room-mates, stole the Senior caps and robes and paraded down to supper and took our places at the Senior table. We tried hard to be dignified, but, had it not been for the high stock collars which were part of the costume, we might have failed entirely. With them on we could not possibly forget for a minute. The girls sang to us and cheered us, and Mr. Thompson introduced us. Once in awhile we caught ourselves actually becoming thrilled, only to remember that it was all a joke—until next year. Then we will be both glad and sorry that it is all real. The biggest thing we are working toward now is the Junior-Senior Debate, which is to take place sometime in April. The debaters have been elected and by hard work and the support of their loyal sister classes, they are hoping to go over the top. Miss Hallie Smith entertained at dinner on Saturday evening, in honor of Miss Maude Han-is, of Emory University, an old LaGrange girl. The guests included Miss Christine Broome, Miss Irene Dillard and Mrs. Abbott, from the college.
