TIGERT SPEAKS ON "HAVNG A LIFE PLAN" Hear Discussion of Value of Working With Definite Purpose. Boys Dr. John J. Tigert, who recently re- turned from abroad, where he has been engaged In war work, was the speaker at the Y. M. C.

Patronize Our Advertisers "Tho sacred bonds of love and matrimony are tho greatest things in life," said Professor J. T. C. Noo in Chapel Friday. To illustrate this statement ho read several delightful poems. After the devotional exercises and the usual reading of announcements the hour passed swiftly as Professor Noe read some of his short poems. Most of them were humorous and caused the audience to rock with laughter. "There is a vast quantity of verse being now written," said he. "Some is good and some bad. Out of this great volume, of varying rythm and style, something worth while is bound to come. Everybody is interested in poetry and I make this my excuse for presenting some of my own verse to you this morning." Certainly no excuse was necessary for Professor Noe's vivid pictures of mountain life, of the old maid, Sallle Jones, of the western farmer and his new Ford and, finally, his rhapsody on the Jazz and camel walk, left little to be desired in the way of entertainment by those who attended chapel on Tuesday.
