—THE MORWNG AVALANCHE By Margaret Turner C AN'T you remember when picking up sugar cubes id-restaurants for iriomentoes used to be fun, like collecting autographs? But now it is definitely in bad taste, close kin to hoarding. * »• * STEFAN 2WEIG M OST everyone \vlio reads an appreciable amount has at one time or other enjoyed a biography by Stefan Zwcig, whether it be Mary, Queen of Scotland, Marie Antoinette or Magellan, the Explorer. But how many know that he wrote a tender little love story, "Letter From An Unknown Woman" that was made into a movie and started Margaret Sullivan on the road to cinema fame? The novelette was known as . "Only Yesterday' 1 when it became a movie and starred Miss Sullivan and John Boles. We came across it one afternoon when we were browsing in a local book shop. It is as tenderly written and beautifully told story o£ unrequited love as we have ever read. * * * RECEIVES PRAISE S WEET praise from Critic John Rosenfield, which is cherished by any one fortunate to warrant his okeh, came to Elizabeth Arnett of Lamesa, former Tech stud' ent and niece of a number of Lubbock residents, following her performance in Dallas Little Theater's play, "Shadow and Substance" Monday night. Miss Arnett had the role of Brjgid, the servant girl who is cherished by the canon for her "classical simplicity" and of her acting Mr. Rosenfield wrote in his .column "Stage in Review:" "The pefformance. Monday night had a star. She was Elizabeth Arnett, a pretty girl from West Texas, who met the difficulties of her assignment with the greatest resources. Nothing short of the subtlest shading could make plausible and affecting the fanatical intensity of her vision scenes. Miss Arnett artfully kept the performance in a low, almost whispering key and reached her climaxes by deft underscoring. She saved herself and us the horrors of stentorian emoting. "Miss Arnett spent three " years in tie old Dallas Little Theater schooL Since then she has acted in various parts oi the country, sometimes oro- fessionaUy. She has perfected the means for diffident, su- persensit i v e characterization that are unecyjaled by any other talent available on Maple avenue." ulizabeth is the niece of Sam C. Arnett, Mrs. Floyd Beall, Mrs. T. W. Stoneroad and Mrs. G. G. Johnson. * * * TODAY'S BOUQUET jyHE-RE'S a pretty young woman J- who has been" an important part of the Tech home economics tiivision who'll be greatly missed hut the college's loss is" gain to Lubbock's business section. We refer to Mrs. Anna Burt Gibson, who has resigned as secretary to Dean Margaret Weeks and has accepted a position with the Lubbock National bank. Mrs. Gibson is that rare person, an efficient secretary and a personable one. She's clever, she's pretty, she's willingly done research for us when \ve called to cheek on matters pertaining to home economics girls, and whatever 'she promises she'll attend to consider that already done. She cooks, she keeps a pretty home, she gardens and she is mother and capable advisor to a young daughter. The Tech girls have been moaning since they discovered that Miss Weeks is losing • her "office girl." * * * « The other day the home economics faculty gave a little tea for Anna Burt and presented her With a mahogany coffee table. * * * _..
