"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
"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.
