TranscriptCONGRATULATIONS, ROLAND HAYES CLUB

The recent appearances of the Roland Hayes Choral Cub on this campus again brings to mind the plaintive loveliness of the old spirituals of the negro race.
It is not out of place to call again to mind the rich heritage the negroes have given American music. Their contribution is a distinct and lasting one in this field. No other type of music has more character and intensity. The plaintiveness and appeal of the negro spiritual has endured since it was first sung in the fields of colonial America two centuries ago.
Today, as the world casts about for security and for a rebirth of the
cultural beauties of a few decades ago, these examples of
artistic expression come as a refreshing breath of air to a fog—filled atmosphere. They epitomize courage and hope.
The Egyptian offers well-deserved congratulations to that great race with the Soul that sings in face of insurmountable trouble.
