HERE’S AN UNEXPECTED PLEASURE On Tuesday evening, February the fifteenth, the Davidson College Glee C-ub will give a concert in Memorial Hall. There is nothing Salem girls enjoy more than visits from other college glee clubs; so you’ll be delighted at this announcement. This is the first time we have been honored with a visit from the David son Glee Club in a long time. On Tuesday night let’s show them we are delighted to have them and “can hard ly wait” for them to come back again, by having a hundred per cent Salem College representation in Memorial Hall. Why not adopt as your watchword for the remainder of this school year, “Give to the world the best you have and the best will come back to you.” (Copied From the Winston-Salem Journal.) Yesterday marked the third meeting of the Alumnae Association of Salem College in connection with Salem Day. The session was held in the library of I the college, and was marked by every manifestation of enthusiasm and gen erous interest. Mrs. Bess Gray Plum- ly, president of the association, pre sided. After the singing of the Alma Mater, Mrs. Rondthaler made a brief talk of welcome to the alumnae, in Which she made references to the girls now in charge. Her remarks were fol- I lowed by a piano solo by Miss Amy 'Van Vleck. Greetings were read from Miss Leh man, who was unable to be present and sent to Miss Lou Shaffner, who was also absent. j^'ollowing a solo by Miss Margaret Mae Thompson, the following officers were elected for the coming year; Mrs. Everett Lockett, president; Mrs. Bess Gray I’lumley, vice-president; Mrs. J. I. Singletary, secretary; Mrs. S. Douglas Craig, treasurer. Before the program closed the “beautiful ghosts” of a Principal of Salem in the long ago and of Salem girls tnrough the generations passed before and later mingled v.ith the i company. Rhymes for each appear- j ance, written by Miss Ida Hinshaw’, j were read by Miss Katherine Graham. I Mr. Emile deSchweinitz, first prin- I cipal of the school in the days when it I existed for “females”, was first to ap pear. All were surprised to leam that the personage was Miss Elizabeth Rondthaler. In succession came girls of 1840, ’50, '61, ’70, and so on until Miss Doro thy Gregory triumphed as the healthy, w^ell rounded, poised girl of 1921, clad in attractive sport costume. Back of these girls of yesterday loomed the great fhadow of the college. As it has stood, it now stands, and there are many reasons why it must continue to stand. Impersonations were made by Misses Elizabeth Griffin, Emily Moye, Hettie Bethea, Helen Brown, Mary Darden, Fay Roberts, Dorothy Ses- soms, Alice Smith, Maggie May Rob bins, Virginia Arthur, Mary Clark, Frances Leach, Dorothy Gregory, Louise Cooke, Gertrude Coble, Maude Bissinger, Marion Cooper, and Evelyn Thom.
