At the Blue Ridge Conference Inst
June the Kentucky and North Carolina delegates to the Boys' Conference, In accord with the usual hos
pitality of these states, gave a party
In honor of the P. W. G.'s (poor
working girls). The Kentucky cottage was selected as the basis for
the frivolity and fun. A similar
party will be a feature of this year's
The cottage was gorgeously decorated In the colors of Kentucky, Be-rc- a,
Duke, U. N. C, N. C. State, and
a few others. Pennants from all the
different schools were attractively
placed on the walls of the cottage.
The P. VV. G.'s, with their escorts
were made to feel as much at home
as possible amid the overhanging
decorations and chapcroncs.
Soon after the guests had arrived
the fun of the evening began, headed up by Llston Pope of Duke, and
Phil Aswerus of Kentucky. Weird
singing was one of the features.

When they died down, their echo
began to come forth, much to everyone's surprise. Mri Hill, of Alabama, and Mr. Wulfeck, treasurer of
the conference, were the perpetrators of this weird act, answering
each other's words from a distance,
resembling an echo.
Boys and Girls
Work at Camp
At Blue Ridge each summer a cerboys are
employed to work in the dining hall,

and boys are a select group, representing the best to be found in the
colleges of the South, and It is nothing unusual to find a girl or boy

The Southern Y. M. C. A. college
students have first choice of positions for work at Blue Ridge during
the summer, and after as many of
them as desire to accept work, then
the remaining positions arc allotted
among the other Southern colleges.
Kentucky has had several men to
attend the Blue Ridge Conference
and work as P. W. B.'s.
The P. W. G.'s (poor working
girls), and P. W. B.'s (poor working
boys), are organized and have their
regular initiation each year to take
in new members. Those who go to
Blue Rrldge and who do not belong
to the organization see that they
are missing something worthwhile,
even though circumstances prevent
them from being members.
There are many different tasks

Production; Large Cast
By Mclvlna Tumphrcy
For the nfth production of the
year the Guignol theater players
will offer the dramatization of Robert Browning's poem, "The Flight
of the Duchess." It will open on
April 29 for a week's run. The play
which was adapted from the famous
poem by Ludovico Camoletti, has
been translated from the Italian by
Prof. W. F. Galloway of the English
department especially for the use
of the Guignal. It consists of a
prologue and three acts and includes
a large cast.
The main stage set represents the
great hall of Castle Lavenburg in
Germany with minor alterations introduced during the action, which,
together with the costumes, will give
a picturesque atmosphere new to
the Guignol offerings.
Director Frank C. Fowler, who has
already firmly established his repu- -'
tation on the campus through his
competent handling of the theater's
previous productions, will undoubtedly add a new star to his crown
with the presentation of this difficult drama.
The cast for the play is announced
as follows: The Archbishop. S. K.
Workman, instructor in the English
department; the roles of Conrad
and Mateo will be given to Melvin

scheduled to be held at the University of Missouri, was held at the
University Friday and Saturday,
March 29 and 30, in the lecture room
of McVey hall. About 150 scientists
from every part of the South were
The program began Friday morning at 8:30 with an address of welcome by President Frahk L. McVey,
which was followed by various discussions of psychological problems.
The rest of the program on Friday
consisted of a reception at Maxwell
Place in the afternoon, and a banquet at 6:30 in the evening in the
gold room of the Lafayette. Other
addresses were given and a council
meeting was held. The program on
Saturday included as a special feature a trip through points of interest in the Blue Grass.
The most talkcd-o- f speaker of the
entire session was Dr. Max Meyer,
who was recently ousted from the
University of Missouri because of a
controversy over a sex questionnaire. Dr. Meyer refused to discuss
the situation and confined his talk
to technical lines, but his standing
among his colleagues was vindicated
when he was elected president of
the society at the business meeting
Other speakers on the program Included Dr. J. C. Barnes, Maryville
