To Have Annual
Winter Concert
Harpsichordist Kirkpatrick
to Appear on Program
as Guest Soloist
The State college choral society,
sponsored by Music council, will
present its annual winter concert
in Chancellor's hall, Thursday at
8:30 o'clock.
Ralph Kirkpatrick,
harpsichordist of world fame, will
appear as guest soloist. Mr. Kirkpatrick was to have appeared at
last year's winter concert, but a
sudden illness forced him to cancel the engagement at the last minute.
Kirkpatrick Well Known
Mr. Kirkpatrick is a well known
figure in the musical world. Not
until his college days at Harvard,
after the harpsichord had been obtained, did he begin his career. He
perfected a technique of his own
and before he was graduated from
Harvard he was able to give a concert. His talent was soon recognized and he travelled and studied
in Prance and Germany after being awarded the Paine Travelling
Fellowship in Music.
Since that time, Mr. Kirkpatrick
has given concerts throughout the
United States and Europe, and in
1937, when lie was awarded the
Guggenheim Fellowship, he returned for more study.
Mr. Kirkpatrick, beside presenting numerous concerts, has also
been active in the teaching of music, having taught at the Mozerteum, a music school in Salzburg,
Austria, and at Bennington college
in Vermont.

Present At '39 Reunion
Twenty-seven yearling pedagogues, members of the class of
'39 conducted a reunion December 28 and 29. Mrs. Brimmer and
Dr. Dorwaldt were guests of
honor at a chicken dinner at
the Charleen restaurant.
After the dinner, twenty-four
of the graduates went roller skating at the Capitol rink. The only
casualty was Chris Ades who fell.
Four stitches were taken in her
chin with Dr. Dorwaldt doing the
knitting and purling. Said Dr.
Dorwaldt to last year's Campus
queen, "You'll have to button
your lip."
Ice skating, buffet luncheon,
and a big game and bull session
at College house closed a successful reunion to which the entire
class will be invited next year.

Qualifications for Ideal Co-Ed
Here il is. Kmmd two. Follow ing
the old adage. "Turn ubuul is fair
play." the men of Slate now give
their opinions on what the Ideal
Girl of State should possess. First
on the program is Max Sykes, '40:
"She must have a nice figure, be
small enough so that my arms can
fit around her, steer clear of jilterbuggin' and have personality a
la carte.
No premium on looks,
must be cooperative, and have the
skin you love lo touch. She should
give a little attention to her escort
and provide a good incentive for
leaving a warm house. In short an
1U90 lass with a 1940 model will do
the trick."
Bob Ague, '41, gives his viewpoint
which follows: "She must not dance
al all, be free of jitter cooties, and
not wear spiked heels. She must
look well in dark glasses but not
wear them; no painting fingernails
and be capable of fighting back."
Charles Qulnn, '41: "She must be
a blond, talkative, pleasingly plump
with a little oomph, personable disposition, and cooperative. She must
not be Jlltcrbugglsh, or goody-goody.
She must be a good dancer and
ready for good, clean, fun. I'd like
a girl with whom I can have a good
time, not a nice time."
