BY ONE WHO KNOWS
What does your Annual mean to
you? Why are you so anxious to see
it when it first conies out? Is it mere
curiosity ? Is it because you have had
a part in putting the books out ? Your
criticisms are sometimes complimen
tary, and then again the editor would
feel better if your remarks were left
The assembling of the Annual quite
naturally falls on the editor. Should
she be responsible for the whole
thing? Should she have all the work
to do? No. Does she do all of the
work? Yes. Do other editors of other
colleges do all the work? No. Then
why does the editor of Sights and In
sights have such a task? Because,
girls, it’s this; You do not do your
part. You make no effort whatever to
help the staff.
Why was it that when the photo
grapher was here the editor missed a
week of class work? Simply because
you did not keep your appointment
with the photographer at your ap
pointed time. His time here was
limited, and when you were not here
at the appointed time some other per
son had to be looked up and brought
over to Annex. Now such as that is
absurd. It is childish and you are not
doing your part when you miss ap
What is wrong with the staff ? Why
does the editor have to “dog” the foot
steps of a girl to get her to do her
work and finally does it for her. Why ?
You know girls, as well as I do. Can
you explain it ? I cannot.
Then comes the financial side, the
contracts with engraver and printer.
For twenty years Salem has signed her
annual contract with the same com
pany. Some of the work has been ex
cellent; some abominable. Is it better
to change? We can’t say. It’s never
been tried before, but the 1921 engrav
ing contract has been given to a dif
ferent company and we hope that the
venture will be successful.
Why does your Annual cost so
much? It is not that the engraver
charges exorbitant prices—all engrav
ing houses have standard prices. Our
contract corresponds to those of other
schools. Why does the staff of Sights
and Insights alw'ays come out with a
financial deficit? If the contract and
the price of the pages are the same as
those in other schools w’hy do we come
out in the hole ? Other college annuals
are included in a budget system. Why
can’t Sights and Insights be included
in ours? There is the trouble. Who
can solve it? Girls, the Annual this
year is a more expensive book than the
one of last year, because the contract
Increased 80%. The book itself is
cheaper because a number of things
which are very expensive and have
been used in the annuals for years are
not to be used. We have done our part
to make the cost of the Annual less
and when pay-day comes, do your part.
To have your book come to you dur
ing the summer is not all desirable.
We know this; and our efforts to have
the Annual published before May 31st
have probably been in vain. There are
many things which have detained the
book going to press. We ask you to
have patience. If it does not come
before the end of school, we shall be
as disappointed as you are.
Next year girls, help your editor by
doing your part. Don’t put your work,
however small, on the editor. It isn’t
fair. It’s a big job to undertake the
Annual, and she needs your help al
ways. Remember that, please.

DAVIDSON GLEE CLUB
Memories now; only memories, which
were once eager anticipations. The
Davidson Glee Club has come—and
gone, and it was thoroughly enjoyed.
We laughed with them, cried with
them, and—wanted to dance with
them. Who could repress a sly smile
at “The Sweet Little Alice Blue
Gown” accompanied by such appro
priate gestures? Who could restrain
a salty tear at “Dry as a Camel’s
Tonsils?” And who could keep her foot
still when the Davidson Wildcats
jazzed her up.
And the thrills with which we fol
lowed the story of Dangerous Dan
Macgrew! And the suspense in which
we lived while the athletic feats were
being demonstrated. •
The juniors and seniors entertained
for the boys in the college parlors
after the performance was over. We
had as our other guests Dr. and Mrs.
Rondthaler, Miss Stipe and Miss
And the next day the unusual sight
of numerous boys artistically draped
on the office corner cheered our hearts
and made us begin to look forward to
May 5, 1922.-
Here’s some exciting news! Our
annuals came today. How 'bout that
for “Sights and Insights.” You know
we usually get them about the middle
of the summer but ours came today.
Excitement reigns supreme. But
why not? It’s the best book ever!
You sec it’s this way. We started
gathering material the second week of
school. We got most of our pictures
the first week in November while the
campus still had its summer dress, and
then completed the job at Thanksgiv-
Every senior did her part and didn’t
try to push the work on one poor girl.
And you know from a gang of girls,
originality is bound to spririg forth. It
We had several good bids for our
work but we signed a contract with
only one house to put out both the
printing and the pictures. I think
their work is fine. We told them if it
was satisfactory they could be sure of
the job next year. Don’t forget to
notice how clear the pictures are and
the printing is almost faultless.
What do you think of this for
finances? We have a budget system
and each girl pays her entire annual
bill at one time. We came out with
exactly ten cents in the treasury!!
We hitched our wagon to a star, as
it were, and then worked toward it.
