Children in their most impression
able years are allowed to attend over
drawn “movies” dealing with problems
which their immature minds cannot
grasp, and with which the average
citizen is never confronted. This type
of show has a great influence on the
susceptible minds of children and is
often destructive to the highest ideals
and ambitions. Every w'oman realizes
this; and it is time that some action
is taken to protect the minds of our
future citizens from such deteriorat
ing influences. Very few states have
instituted a state board of censors and
a bill is now on foot to provide for one
in North Carolina. No wide-awake
citizen should be satisfied until this
bill is passed, and a committee of men
and women selected whose business it

SOCIAL LIFE AT SALEM
Salem College is aspiring to and is
about to attain the A1 mark.
Many important steps have been
taken in this direction during the past
few' years, and the goal is almost
leached. But in our earnest endeavor
to raise our scholastic standard some
thing f'lse that is of equal importance
in college life has been forgotten—our |
social activities. They must be en- j
larged and improved to meet the de- j
mands of an A1 college. Democracy j
and co-operation must prevail. Salem ■
needs more informal social gatherings'
in which the whole student body takes
part. As it is, Saturday night affairs
and other social occasions are arrang
ed for by small groups, and, while this
is desirable at times, the continued
habit is destructive to the spirit of
friendliness and comradship that
exists at Salem.
Man> a shrinking, unnoticed girl
should be brought out in the sunshine
of good-fellowship and exhibit hereto
fore hidden social qualities which no
one dreams she possesses.
It is noticeable that Salem has very |
little social intercourse with the out
side world. It seems to us that in-|
formal receptions to the teams and or-^
ganizations of our men’s colleges!
would be in order. As it stands now
there are two functions during the
year to which young men are invited,
namely, the Junior-Senior Prom, and a
reception to one college glee club by
the Seniors. How about that for the
well-rounded college life! i
It tnight be added that if Salem en- j
tertained more within her walls, thati
there would not be such a large num- |
ber of week-ends spent away from the i
college, in Winston and neighboring
We know girls in our own homei
towns who meet boy friends on the |
street or in their friends’ homes, be- j
cause they cannot have callers at j
home. We criticize such girls, but are
they entirely to blame?
Salem is our college home, and there
we want to live happy and sensible'
lives, with the privileges and diver
sions that are suitable to college j
THIS IS TO REMIND YOU
This is to remind you that the
famine is still raging in China. It is
unbelievable that ^ self-respecting
nation should stand coolly by and see
another nation starve; it is just as un
believable that a body of self-respect
ing students should neglect to do their
part. Looking at the matter from a
selfish point of view, it affords no little
satisfaction to know that you have
helped to save a human life. Let’s get
together on this thing and do credit to
ourselves and Salem College.

80% EXAM EXEMPTIONS
A fight is being waged by the Salem
College students with an 80% exam-
exemption for Seniors as an objective.
The matter has gone through the
Student Council and is now being con
sidered by a faculty committee.
We wish to call the faculty’s atten
tion to an extract from a recent issue
of the Davidsonian, in which it at
tributes the large number of upper
classraon’s names on the honor roll to
the fact that Seniors are exempted
from exams if they attain a certain
The five following points are the
chief arguments for the adoption of
1. It would encourage the Seniors
to study more systematically through
out the term.
2. If a Senior maintains an average
of 80 throughout the semester she has
a more thorough knowledge of the
subject than if she loafs until exam
time and then crams madly.
3. By the time a student finishes
three years of college work she has
probably learned good habits of study
and gained the ability to gather up
the lose ends for herself.
4. Other colleges have tried it and
found it successful.
5. Salem is trying to raise her
standard. Wouldn’t more systematic
preparation of daily recitations facili
If there are any members of the
faculty who remain unconvinced after
reading these five points we invite
them to use the Salemite as an agent
to distribute their counter-arguments
among the students, for after all both
Salem faculty and students have the
same goal in view and that is to rriake
Salem bigger and better.
