It was the first hotel in picture, or are you saying to each i Winston-Salem and for a long time other, “What is that familiar looking I the only one. In 1791 President Wash- place; I know it but I simply cannot ■ ington spent three days in the north- place it?” Then someone says, “Thej east comer room on the second floor Butner Inn! Of course!” ! of this historic building. To this day. The Butner Inn was begun in 17711 that room is still called Washington's but was not built all at once; it grew i room, and is often visited by tourists. MERLE ALCOCK AND LAMBERT MURPHY GIVE JOINT RECITAL Thvtsday evening, March the third, Salem College and the Rotary Club was unusually fortunate in having two of America’s most promising artists. Merle Alcock, contralto, and Lambert Murphy, tenor, appear jointly in Memorial Hall. This had been an eagerly anticipat ed occasion and surely no hopes were shattered. The program was unusually well ar ranged. There were numbers to suit the taste of true music students, and occasionally we had the pleasure of hearing one of the good old songs that everybody always enjoys. Encores were numerous. Who wouldn’t demand an encore after “Darling Nellie Gray,” “Absence,” or “Oh That We Two Were a-Maying.” A WONDERFUL TIME I We wonder what the Davidsonians are doing “on Wildcat Hill” for ex citement since the “fires” have died down! Salem, for one, still has many sparks of enthusiasm around when the two words—“Junior-Speaking’,, and “Davidson” are even breathed! The Salemites attending this enjoyable oc casion were: Hettie Bethea, Fay Rob erts, Helen Everett, ' Carrie Floyd, Sarah Lingle, Elizabeth Armstrong, Eliza Gaston Moore, Juanita Sprinkle, Mary Bradham, Grace Shepard, and Margaret Hashagen. TWO SHAKESPEARE PLAYS COME TO TOWN “Romeo and Juliet” and “Hamlet” On Tuesday, March the eighth, Salem girls began to feel that they had suddenly been transplanted to New York City to “take in” the best plays of the season, for they had the pleasure of seeing “Romeo and Juliet” in the city Auditorium at a matinee, and “Hamlet” at the evening performance. Fritz Leiber took the part of Romeo in the afternoon and Hamlet in the evening. Mr. Leiber has been play ing Shakespearean roles for seventeen years. Ten years he appeared as lead ing man and co-star with Robert Man- tell and later as leading man with Julia Marlowe in “When Knighthood Was in Flower”; leading man one sea son each with Ben Greet and Madame Olga Petrova; and has just finished a triumphant engagement in New York City. Mr, Leiber was supported by Miss Irby Marshal, leading woman, Aus tralia’s leading actress; Louis Leon Hall, famous Philadelphia matinee idol, Virginia Bronson, late of the Mantell Company; Arthur Row and Joseph Singer who were with John Barrymore last season; John Burke, and twelve other capable players. The scenic arrangements were very effective with gorgeous illumination. Mr. Leiber is the first man to really popularize Shakespeare’s works in a number of years. His personality is wonderfully attractive; he is a man of strong voice, fine figure, handsome face and commanding stage presence. This was a rare opportunity and something that everybody enjoyed to the fullest extent. VOTE FOR THE GIRL WHO FILLS THE BILL Inauguration Day ushered in a new era in the affairs of our nation. Nev/ policies and new’ ideas will be applied; and every true citizen stands waiting eagerly for progress, and ready to lend a helping hand in time of stress. And so it is that our college elections come, a faithful echo of the national event, and they are just as important, in a small way. As the fate of a | nation depends upon the judgment of j those of the helm, so the life of our college depends upon those placed in authority. This is a miniature commonwealth, and we are its citizens—a responsi bility not to be taken lightly. The elections should claim the serious con sideration of every student. Not only should the six or eight presidents be chosen with great care, but likewise their co-workers, the council and cabinet members, and heads of committees. The president cannot run an organization alone. She must have efficient, faithful support. Let us vote for the conscientious, fair-minded, all-round girl who will uphold and carry on the ideals of Salem. And having elected her, stick by her. MISS JACKSON PRESENTS DANCES The faculty and students of Salem College and their friends were recent ly very delightfully entertained in Memorial Hall by a number of dances and songs representative of various nations. The dances were supervised by Miss Jackson, head of the Depart ment of Physical Education, and showed remarkable co-operation on the part of the participants and their instructor. The costumes were typical of the nationalities which they represented — especially the quaint Dutch shoes, for which Miss Jackson deserves much credit. It does not seem necessary to say anything about the songs by Miss Margaret Mae Thompson and Miss Alimae Temple, as hearing is believing in this case. The entertainment was given under the auspices of the McDowell Club. The program was as follows: The national Scotch Dance—The Highland Fling—Hilda Moran, Eliza beth Alcocke, Betsy Holt, Annie T. Archbell, Margaret Whitaker, Helen Streett, Elizabeth Rhodes, Mar>’ Louise Pybus. 2. Italian Folk Song—Santa Lucia —Miss Alimae Temple. 3. An Italian Dance—Tarantella— Maggie Mae Robbins, Nina Sue Gill, Alice Rulfs, Julia Bethea. 4. An English Folk Song—“Bar bara Allen”—Miss Margaret Mae Thompson. 5.

EASTER AT WINSTON-SALEM Have you bought your copy of the attractive little booklet, “Easter at Winston-Salem, N. C.,” which tells you all about the almost world-reknowned Moravian Easter services ? It’s some thing you can’t afford to be without and there’s one for you for a mere pit tance—fifty cents. For years there has been a real need for an adequate published description of these impressive services. Now Dean Shirley has supplied this need. This booklet will fill a little niche all its own; for besides a detailed ac curate description of the services of Passion Weok, it also contains an ac count of many other beautiful customs of the Moravians, of the wonderful music, four appropriate poems, cuts of familiar scenes in Old Salem. It is a mighty worth while booklet and one that will bring great pleasure now and in years to come. So buy your copy today and send the folks back home one, too! IN THE MUSICAL WORLD Mr. Fritz Kreisler gave a violin re cital for the benefit of the Association for the Aid of Crippled Children in Carnegie Hall last Tuesday evening. The big audience was well rewarded, for the violinist is seldom in such play ing form.—Musical Digest. Paderewski says that he likes jazz. Good! At last it will become popular. As yet we have seen no charts or tables in the daily papers to illustrate how much Caruso’s illness is costing him per minute, hour, week, and month. We hear though that he will again sing at the Metropolitan next fall.—Musical Courier. MUSIC HOUR We are still enjoying the series of Lenten Organ Recitals. L’lst week Mrs. J. Kenneth Pfohl, at the organ, was assisted by Mr. Pfohl, b.'i' it one. This week Miss Mary V. Jones ren dered the organ selections and was as sisted by Miss Elizabeth Butner, har pist, and Miss Nanna Johnson, so prano.
