Mr. Perry used as his theme
the "Quality of Our Lives Dur-
ing the course of his speech, he
drew a comparison between the
life of Christ and that of Me-

nine hundred years, while the
former lived only thirty-three.
In spite of the shortness of his
life. Christ contributed more to
mankind than Methuselah.
Mr. Perry pointed out that
we should get the most possible
out of our lives. To get the most
out of life we must get all of
everything put before us. Ap-
preciation of good books, art,
and music contribute much to a
full life. Mr. Perry closed by

Interest In Elections
Editors and other staff members of the campus publications
are to v selected March 10th. At the same time, members of
the Women's Student Government Association will go to the polls
and elect their officers for the coming "year. We wish to commend
those who were responsible for the mass meeting at which time
the candidates were introduced. The discussion which followed,
even though it was a little late in really getting started, was an
encouraging indication that ECTC students are taking an in-
creased interest in campus affairs. This expression of opinion
concerning student elections was ,we believe, sincere, and truly
the student's honest opinion. This is the inly truly democratic
way to conduct an election. Every side has a chance to express
their views, and members of the student body have a chance to
acquaint themselves with all candidates.
In the past, too many offices have been more or less "in-
herited" here with the incumbent saying who shall be his suc-
cessor. In other cases, elections have been to some extent popu-
larity contests. This has not been the case in every election, but
there is plenty of evidence to show that it has been true in many
instances. As a result, in the past we have had a few students
elected to twice as many offices as they could possibly hold suc-
cessfully; and other organizations have had mediocre leaders
because the students were not interested enough to select good
ones. It is time for the students to try even harder than ever be-
fore to elect candidates on the basis of their qualifications for
that office. Investigate for yourself and then cast your ballot
on the basis of intelligent reasoning. DO NOT FORGET TO
Six More Days
And Some Minutes
And Then
Overheard: six days, two
hours, ten minutes, then the
good Iord only knows what. In
case you haven't done much
visiting during these perilous
days, the latest method for re-
cording time is to string a
month of paper dolls across the
room, and eliminate one a day
as a milestone. Wonder if this
unique style could be any means
be traced to a practice of some
our students who believe in
stringing 'em?
The last one to leave is a
sissy, or is he the one who re-
members to sign out? Anyway,
all evidence points to the belief
that E. C. T. C. will be a dull
spot from noon March 12th un-
til March 19th. The only com-
plaint we've heard comes from
New River. What will all those
marines do that week-end? Oh
well, there are enough of them
(8000) to worry about that,
why should we?
A word from the wise: Be
sure to make those seven days
count (for better or for worse).
Eat, drink, and ride, for tomor-
row you may walk!
We grant you this March
wind may be plenty strong, but
we warn you; we accept it as
no excuse for anyone getting
swept off his feet. In other
words, we are expecting every-
body back next quarter hale,
hearty, and happy.

quarter dozens of students who seek private instruction have to
be turned down because the teachers' schedules are so overloaded
that they can find no time for additional pupils. It is not fair to
these students that really want to better themselves in their
music activities. The ones in authority should investigate this
matter and make plans for supplying an additional teacher, or
teachers if need be, in order to provide adequate instruction to
the students. Though students and faculty members are proud
of many of the educational advantages available in the school,
they should be ashamed and embarrassed that the music majors
are suffering thus.
The fact that teachers and students having classes in Austin
are continuously disturbed throughout the day by voice and in-
strumental students, emphasizes the now-existing need for action
Nine practice rooms cannot accommodate satisfactorily forty-
odd music students taking from one to three courses requiring
the use of practice rooms which are open only nine hours a day.
Not only are the students cramped for time, but they are further
inconvenienced when teachers knock on the door and ask them
to either tone down their vocalizing, or their playing, or move to
another practice room. Though perhaps the noise is annoving to
those nearby, the students who have to pay quarterly to use these
rooms have a perfect right to stay on until their scheduled time
is up.
Perhaps the best solution to this problem is to house the
music department in a building all its own. However we realize
that this would necessitate a building problem which is practical-
ly impossible in this time of crisis. Though the best solution is
mentioned, there are other workable suggestions for remedying
this situation. Is the entire third floor of Austin in use? Has any-
one thought of the possibility of transforming the space there
into additional practice rooms? Practicing there would minimize
the disturbance of other classes and would alleviate the necessity
of evacuating the practice rooms on the dot of the hour Of course
the remodeling would call for a change in the school budget but
is not this young, though promising department worthy of addi-
tional funds with which to operate?
It seems that now is the right time for the administration to
join hands with the music department and see that immediate
action is taken. The situation is certainly worthy of such atten-

There Are Many Ways To Lick The Japs
Defense efforts have not been in vain on our campus, but it
seems to us that one very important matter has been given little
attention. Every week end brings a number of men in the ser-
vice to our campus seeking entertainment and relaxation. How-
ever they don't always get it. We would not say that they are
boycotted or shuned, but just politely ignored.
There are two types of girls involved in this situation. One
of these girls is so arrogant and egoistical that even when the
future of her country, her life, and happiness is affected, she can
not shed her royal cloak of behavior to the extent of volunteering
a friendly hello or an encouraging smile to men in uniform. She
does not dare lower herself so much as to dance with the service
men that come to the campus building, searching for compion-
up the moral and being coura- buildings, to be used for in-l ive tne idea further considera-

talk like his, all of us should
feel equal to saving more dimes,
knitting more sweaters, and

can't afford to forget to keep
the home fires burning.

most unfortunate that such idea constitute the make up of some
of the American college girls, and especially some of those on
our own campus. She doesn't seem to realize that all men are be-
ing armed now. Men are being drafted or enlisting from every
walk of life. Movie stars, the President's sons, college boys
brothers, cousins, and uncles; all are in this fight.
On the other hand we have the loyal American girl. She
realizes that there are many ways to be patriotic and to help win
this war. She hasn't blotted her character or disgraced herself
when she acts courteous and friendly to the service men. She is
helping with the morale. Girls can encourage these boys to do
the best job of what is ahead.

of service men on this campus. Why not try to make their days

In Coining Season
There has been .iome "Red
Hot" basketball playing this
season among the fairer sex of
the campus. Strict competition
and good sportsmanship have
been the leading factors in the
series of games that have been
played between various "lady
teams" on the campus.
Due to the large number of
participants, the teams have
been grouped into afternoon
and night teams. Jarvis Hall
ranks top in the afternoon divi-
sion, while Cotten I holds the
bag for the night games.
The teams and their captains
are as follows:
Afternoon Division:
Jarvis Hall, captained by
Esther Parker.
Fleming Hall captained by
Pearl House.
Night Division'

Virginia "Sit" Knowles. who

Mr. McHenry, ground super-
intendent will have the playing
field in its best condition in
many years. Most of the work
was finished after the football
season and the entire field was
leveled to afford the best drain-
Several of the games will
probably be played at the Guy
Smith Stadium in order to ac-
commodate overflowing crowds
expected for important games.
Chief interest lies in the local
appearance of Bob Feller and
Sam Chapman of the Norfolk
Training station. Several other
military units are up for con-
sideration by the schedule
makers and local fans may have
the opportunity of seeing quite
a few of baseball's brightest
stars in action here.

prospects. Coach Christenbury
emphasized that his chief worry
lies in the pitching staff which
