Here are a few tips on the
terms that you will need to use,
what they mean and how to pro-
nounce them.
ria�pronounce this Ah-ree-
ah with the same kind of an
"ah" that you say for Miss
Grogan when you have a sore
throat. If you say air-ee-ar you
ar' just not being operatic.
What does it mean? It is a prin-
cipal song sung as a solo in the
opera. In this opera there are
two very well known arias,
"The Last Rose of Summer"
which soprano Abeyounis will
sing in Act II, and "Ah, so
Pure" which tenor Perry will
sing in Act III.
Score�If you ask one of the
singers about his score, don't
expect to hear him say "ten to
nothing in the third quarter.
The score is the book of music
which will be performed.

Carolina Defeated
By Local Debaters
Receiving the unanimous de-
cision of the three judge,
ECTC defeated Carolina for the
second time this year in a debate
which took place February 17,
in the New Classroom building.
Debating the proposal thai
the United Nations establish a
federal union, the ECTC team
composed of Sophomores Car-
lyle Cox and James Worsley
presented a plan of organization
for a union and gave four rea-
sons for its adoption. E. O.
Brogden and Aaron Johnson,
representing Carolina attacked
the plan by claiming that it
would involve many disadvan-
tages of which the most impor-
tant would be the surrender of
national sovereignty. In order
to avoid this loss of sovereignty
the University team proposed a
union combining the important
features of the League of Na-
tions and the British Common-
wealth of Nations.
In the rebuttal the first
ECTC debaters attempted to
minimize the importance of the
loss of sovereignty by declaring,
"We are not willing to die for
an abstract notion of national
sovereignty! If it can not give

"Martha" has been given be-
fore two enthusiastic audiences.
School children were dismissed
from school to attend the mati-
nee, Thursday afternoon, and a
successful performance was
given last night. Tuesday night
at 8:30 the opera will be given
again for the last time.
Mr. Denton Rossell is direct-
ing the singers. Mr. A. L. Ditt-
mer directs the orchestra, and
Camille Jernigan is at the piano.
Principles began work on the
opera last October, and the
chorus in January under the di-
rection of Miss Gussie Kuyken-
Jean Abeyounis is giving a
splendid performance in the
leading role. Bobby Pritchard
is singing the mezzo-soprano
part; Donald Perry sings the
tenor role while baritone roles
are being taken by Rudy Wal-
ers, W. B. Harris, and Jim
White. Smaller parts are being
taken by Marv Alice Charlton,
Marie Walthall, Morris Flow,
Elizabeth Bridgers, Lucy NeU
Smith and Mary Blane Justus.
Miss Ellen Caldwell of the
mathematics department assis-
ted with the staging. Miss Cald-
well had experience in numer-
ous dramatic presentation and
received training in dramatics
at Randolph-Macon and Colum-
bia university before coming to
East Carohna Teachers College.
Members of the Chi Pi Play-

"Have you ever been a faculty
member?" and went on to ex-
press his deepened understand-
ing of the responsibilities that
rest on a teacher and his appre-
ciation for the contributions
made by the faculty advisers.
Responding, Miss Louise Wil-
liams, the YW faculty adviser,
expressed the pleasure being
an adviser affords. She said
that she liked sitting down with
individuals or groups to think a
problem through, and that any
time a former "Y" member
stood for the best wherever he
happened to be, his advisers
were well repaid for any time
and energy they had shared
with him. "We will never claim

Included on the program
were several songs led by
Miriam Sexton, accompanied by
Wilma Lewis at the piano, as
well as several impromptu songs
by guests.
General Chairmen for the

portant standing committees of
the college.
Two student members will
become additions to the Com-

'Lucy The Laundry Cart7
Appearing In Local Opera
For several years the ECTC
laundry cart has faithfully ser
ved to pick up laundry from the
dormitories, and to assist in a
life of routine and drudgery.
Perhaps in its youth it dreamed
of a career on the stage, and
perhaps even in recent years it
dreamed of being elevated from
its drab existence; but it is
scarcely believeable that it
could have dreamed of one day
going into grand opera and be-
ing elevated to the fly gallery
between acts, there to remain
while prima donnas and pretty
chorus girls paced the score of
"Martha" on the stage below.
When "Martha" is staged at
the Metropolitan a real live
horse wearing special leather
boots which cost fifteen dollars
apiece comes onto the stage at
the end of the second scene and
serves to haul Nancy and Har-
riet away in a carriage. Obvi-
ously the stage of Austin audi-
torium is a trifle small for a
show and besides horses some-
times misbehave in opera as did
one when Helen Hepson and
James Milton were singing
"Martha" in Cincinatti. On that
particular occasion the horse
started prancing and became so
enmeshed in the reins that an
emergency curtain was neces-
sary to bring that scene to a
premature ending. In staging
the local production of
"Martha" the directors were
confronted with the problem of
horseless transportation for the
two girls who are purchased as
farm maids and carried away
by Lionel and Plunkett to serve
as their domestics. Th1 oppor-
tunity had come. "Lucy the
Laundry Cart" could see her-
self behind the footlights. It
had been years since she had
vocalized but one day as she
passed director Rossell on the
campus she just squeeked her
very best little squeek and was
engaged with an opera com-
pany. Now, wearing a skirt of
Richmond stripes and bedecked
with a canopy of red, white,
and green she defies recogni-
tion and realizes a life long am-
bition. Each morning she re-
turns to her regular duties at
the laundry but until her wheels
squeek flat she will retain the
memory of performance in
grand opera and the loving re-
membrance of carrying the
prima donna off the stage.

Turn About Fair Play
Tonight the student body, and faculty
of ECTC and the people of Greenville will
have an opportunity to witness the first
grand opera ever to be attempted by stu-
deiis of ihe music department on the cam-
pus. This is not only an opportunity but a
rare privilege! Students will see and hear
their classmates in roles that have not been
witnessed before, -litterbugs, athletes, prac-
tice teachers, and all types of students will
sing the gav choruses from Flotow's opera
This performance has been anticipated
by many for some time. It is a reasonable
guess, however, that there are students who
have not given much thought to opera Per-
haps they do not care for opera, but if that
is the case then it must be because they do
not know enough about opera. Don't let the
mere word, opera, frighten you. All operas
are not tragic, in foreign language, or high-
ly technical. To the contrary this opera is
light, easilv understood, comic, and very
colorful The plot is "The Same Ole Story
boy meets girls, boy looses girl, boy gets girl
back. Between those three happenings the
gayest and most interesting is sung bv ex-
cellent student voices. Music students sup-
port other acivities�enjoy sports, plays,
etc. Here's tc all the other students support-
ing them in their most important and ex-
citing undertaking!
Watch Out Girls, Marriage
Isn't A Meal Ticket
bl Associated Collegiate Press
Mrs. Alexander Thomson, president of
Western college, Oxford, Ohio, warns col-
lege girls against looking upon marriage
life merely as a meal ticket. "Marriage is
one of the most normal, natural and desir-
able experiences that anyone, man or wo-
man, can achieve declares Mrs. Thomson,
who is the mother of four grown sons, some
of whom are married and have children.
"Yet daring wartime, marriage must face
perplexing problems, the solutions to which
are not always indicated by precedent or
clearly marked courses.
"First, marriage can no longer be re-
garded as a purely personal matter. The fact
that so many war marriages are hasty ones
will only add to the general instability of our
country after the war is over.
"At that time there will be so many fac-
tors contributing to our general unrest and
unhapiness that for any group to add to
them is of almost national significance
"At the very core of the national stabil-
ity we are fighting for is the stability of the
home. By jeopardizing the one, we are equal-
ly placing the other in jeopardy.
"Young women can no longer regard
marriage as a meal ticket. In the new post-
war economy, both men and women will
have to work�marriage can no longer be a
solution to the economic problems of making
one's living. Young people should be advised
to consider all these factors before making
their choices and decisions.
"Marriage is not a status quo; it
changes from day to day. People separated
by time and space and experiences are run-
ning serious risks of growing apart rather
than together in their marriage life.
"A successful war marriage demands
that man and women have unusual knowl-
edge of each other, not only of themselves as
they are but of their possibilities and capa-
bilities so they can come back with the �ame
WhoVWho In 'Martha'
Some people think music majors and
opera singers aren't iust like anyone else.
Contrary to that belief are the students and
faculty who have been working on the opera
"Martha These students are unusual in
ability, interests and nature. We would like
for you to meet them, these young opera
"stars and more experience directors.
Jean Abeyounis, Greenville lyric so-
prano, has the lead as Lady Harriet and
"Martha She finished her voice major
course at Christmas and is doing farther
study this quarter with Mr. Denton Rossell.
For four years Jean has given a concert here
in the spring. This year she will give an-
other and probably her last one here, as a
student. She hopes to study voice in New
York in the near future. In high school Jean
was outstanding in glee club. She sang the
soprano solo in the State contest one year,
and in the trio one year. Also she had the
lead in the "Gypsy Rover Since she has
been a student here she has been very active
in many campus activities. She was a mem-
understanding with which war duties may
now separate them.
"Many very practical economic ques-
tions now enter into thepicture. Is the girl
fitted to support herself and possibly her
children? Has her family agreed to the
match and is it willing to assume added
burdens? Is she herself fully aware of the
complexities the war situation may develop?
"There are many questions and impor-
tant questions, but in spite of them and the
serious implications they mav hold, let
again reiterate my faith in the institution

College Does Pay!
by Associated Collegiate Press
Does a college education pay?
now that question is uppermost in
American minds, more than ever before. In-
dustry and business seem to be offering un-
usual opportunities to persons with little or
no training, and those who have had higher
education apparently have no better status
than unschooled workers.
From a practical standpoints, however,
actual statistics lead to a different conclu-
sion. Men and women with college educa-
tions not only have more prominence in their
vocational fields, they make more money.

positions and salaries of graduates of the

more by the students and the faculty than

Well, girls the Varsitv Club dance is but
one week off. Better get busy, there are a

that get to go to that dance are tops on the
campus. So manicure those nails, wave that
hair, pluck those eyebrows, powder that nose,

Your Korrespondent saw in the town
paper the other day where "Big Fish" was

This year has been marked by
many changes in the sports pro-
gram of many colleges and pro-
fessional leagues caused bj-
transportation difficulties and
a shortage of players as a result
of the war. Many small schools,
like our own, have been forced
to abandon their intercollegiate
program entirely and substitute
intramural program instead.
The basketball season just
ending has been characterized
by upsets and leaves no team
undefeated. Many of the pre-
season favorites lost their stars
and have had only a mediocre
team. Play in the Southern Con-
ference has been dominated by
the Blue Devils of Duke and th;
Colonials of George Washing-
ton with Duke the top-seeded
team in the tournament to be-
held in Raleigh next week. In
the Ivy League the play has
been dominated by Penn State
and Dartmouth with Penn
State, on the strength of its 13
game winning streak, favored
to merge as conference champs.
The strong University of Ken
tucky team has dominated play
in the Southeastern Conference
j and is almost certain to take the
j title there.
Many of the minor leagues in
j baseball have already voted to
� s ispend play until after the
ur.ati n of the war as they are

Spring is in the air and a
! young man's fancy turns to
tennis. This is a little different
from the old saying but is,
nevertheless, true. The editor
wonders when some effort will
be made to put the courts in
shape so that tennis aspiranto
will be able to begin play. Many
people have been heard to ex-
press a desire to play a set or
two but because the courts were
not ready had to postpone their
desired match. We are not
criticising anyone but merely
wish to ask that the courts bo
made ready for use earlier than
usual this year as the unusually
warm weather offers an oppor-
tunity for playing.
In perhaps what is the last
sports page to be issued in the
Teeo Echo for the duration of
the war, we the students and
athletes wish to pay tribute to

During the fall of his second
year here Coach Christenbury
was able to realize what is the
dream of every coach, that of a
perfect season. His talented
football team won all of their
contests, including victories
over the strong outfits of Ber-
gen College of Teaneck, N. J
and Erskine College of Key
West, S. C, and establishing a
record which will be pointed at
with pride
This season because of the
transportation difficulties caus-
ed by the war it became neces-
sary to drop interscholastic
sports, but Coach Christenbury,
realizing the importance of
sports activity to the individual
students, worked out a program
of intramurals which was high-
ly successful and of great bene-
fit to the students
In a parting gesture of tribute
to the man who has done sc
much for athletics here we the
students join in giving fifteen
Rahs for Coach Christenbury
who has been commissioned a
Lieutenant (jg) in the U. S.
Navy and soon joins with
others in the fight for victory
so that people may once again
enjoy the thrills of a sports
contest in a world of peace.

Some questions and answer of Interest
to every patriotic college woman
First of all, is the WAAC really needed
Emphatically yes! Already the President has authorized the
Corps to expand from 25,000 to 150,000. The Air Forces
and Signal Corps have asked for thousands of WAAC mem-
bers to help with vital duties. Both Ground Forces and
Services of Supply are asking for thousands more. Members
of the WAAC may be assigned to duty with the Army any-
where - some are already in Africa and England.
Cam the WAAC really help win the war?
The whole idea of the WAAC is to replace trained soldiers
needed at the front. If American women pitch in now to help
our Army (as women in Britain, Russia and China do), we
can hasten Victory � and peace.
The drilling mounds so strenuous�I
Nonsense! The most beautiful women in America today
are the girls in khaki! Some calisthenics and drilling are
vital to general good health, discipline and tuned-up reflexes.
After a few weeks at Fort Des Moines, Daytona Beach or the
new Fort Oglethorpe training center you'll feel better than
ever in your life.
Maybe I wouldn't lihe the work?
People are happiest doing what they do well. Every effort
is made to place you where your service will count most
toward final Victory. You may have some latent talent that
will fill a particular need for work interesting and new to
women �such as repairing the famous secret bombsight,
rigging parachutes, operating the fascinating new electronic
devices �or driving an Army jeep over foreign terrain.
Then I have a chance to team something new?
Yes, indeed. And the list of WAAC duties grows constantly.
The training and experience you get in the WAAC may
equip you for many stimulating new careers opening up
for women.
cam mm college education contribute?
College training is important equipment for many WAAC
duties too long to list. Cryptography, drafting, meteorology,
laboratory work, Link trainer and glider instructing, for ex-
ample. If you are a senior you may enroll at once and be
placed on inactive duty until the school year ends. See your
WAAC faculty adviser for more details.
nty chances of promotion?
Excellent. The Corps is expanding rapidly and needs new
officers, both commissioned and noncommissioned. Those
who join now have the best chances. All new officers now
come up through the ranks. If qualified, you may obtain a
commission in 12 weeks after beginning basic training.
What is the age range and other requirements?
Very simple. You may join if you are a U. S. citizen, aged
21 to 44, inclusive, at least 5 feet tall and not over 6 feet,
in good health � regardless of race, color or creed. But the
Army needs you now � don't delay. Total War won't wait!
M lice comfortably am WAAC pay?
There are few civilian jobs in which you could earn clear
income, as WAAC enrolled members do, of $50 to $138 a
month �with all equipment from your toothbrush to cloth-
ing, food, quarters, medical and dental care provided. WAAC
officers earn from $150 to $333.33 a month.
tAmauist needed. If yon speak and write Spanish,
Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, French, German
or Italian, see your local Army recruiting office now! You
are needed for interpreting, cryptography, communications.
