Article "Freshman Talent Furthers WSSF"

Description

This Collegian article, published December 12, 1947, is about a talent show organized by Westhampton College freshmen to benefit the World Student Service Fund, an international student relief organization. The show, which took place on December 10, was written, acted, and produced by members of the first-year class. The article notes that it featured dancing and impressions, as well as an auction in which students bid for odd-jobs to be done by their professors. The article briefly mentions that Betsy Bethune gave a monologue in blackface and that Helen Clark, Frances Allen, and Cordelia and Cornelia Gates sang "Dinah" in blackface.
