Brandon Notes The session of 1916-17 begins on Wednesday, September the 20th. Basic has been paving its streets during the summer. This is a great convenience to all the Brandon students since the pavement extends to the front gate of the school. Two more Packard pianos have just been purchased for the Music Department of BRANDON INSTITUTE. Miss Lenora Bateman with her mother and sister, have visited the Niagra [Niagara] Falls during vacation. Miss Bateman is our teacher of Art and Domestic Science. Our office, front porch and library room are being fitted up. These changes and improvements will add to the conveniences of our students very materially. Dr. Hoenshel is treating himself to a new Bungalow which he is now building. It is located on the site of the Shenandoah Normal in which he was formerly interested. Dr. Frederick E. Cluff, our senior piano teacher, has been spending his vacation at his childhood home in Haverhill, Mass. [Massachusetts] He is resting and getting ready for a great year in piano. Dr. B. C. Unseld who received his musical education in the New England Conservatory and who was the first secretary of that institution, paid a visit to Mr. E. T. Hildebrand on the 13th and 14th of August. He was on his way to Lawrenceburg, Tenn. [Tennessee] Mr. Hildebrand has been a student of his in Methods, Theory and Conducting. The late Dr. Palmer spoke of Dr. Unseld as the "Prince of American vocal teachers." Miss Georgianna Lots was elected by the Brandon Y. W. C. A. as a delegate to the Southern National Convention, of that organization, at Montreat, N. C. [North Carolina], which convened June 15 and 16.
