“AND STILL THE SALEMITE
The Salemite is planning an ex
tensive, campaign for recognition.
Progress is its watch-word. Already
it has been ably represented at one
press convention and now delegates
have been elected to attend the ones to
be held in Davidson (Misses Sarah
Lingle and Maude Bissinger) and
Richmond (Misses Marie Edgerton
and Mary S. Parker.) This means
that oar college publication will claim
a place among the best in the south,
and it must live up to this position.
Every student has an active part to
play in this work. Voluntary sugges
tions and contributions are greatly de^
sired. The Salemite should be a
medium thiough which the wishes,
ide.HS and policies of the student-body
are expressed; and it is hoped that it
will accomplish this end.

They are with us continually; more’s

On the first of May the frogs in the
pond give a leap, they say.” And if
you have listened to the chorus from
Salem creek you will surely know that
spring has come. The unfolding buds
on upper campus, the tender green of
the trees on the lawn, and the general
festive atmosphere, proclaim “Spring.”
The person who has never seen Salem
campus in the spring-time has a treat
m store for her—she’ll never forget it.
Nature outdoes herself and lends her
most alluring charms to the fascinat
ing quaintness of Salem.
And spring has brought the ging
ham dress. How bright the old halls
look with blues and pinks and greens
flitting about instead of the sombre
But while we listen to the voice of
spring, let us not forget that our work
still goes on, and that before we know
it, the early spring blossoms will give
place to those of summer, and exams,

THE FIRST GRADUATING RE
CITAL-GIVEN BY MISS NANCY
On Monday evening, March the
seventeenth. Miss Nancy Hankins, ’20,
gave her graduating piano recital in
Memorial Hall. Miss Hankins was as
sisted by her brother, Mr. Foster Han
kins, violinist. This recital marked
the beginning of the series of graduat
ing recitals for the year 1921. And
truly it was a glorious beginningt- If
the .succeeding recitals equal this one,
the music lovers have numerous treats
to look foi'ward to before commence
SENIOR EXAM. EXEMPTION
Much to the sorrow of the present
senior class—and we may add—of the
incoming seniors, the faculty disap

CONTEST AMONG MEMBERS OF
As announced in the last Salemite,
a contest is being held by the North
Carolina Collegiate Press Association,
among the contributors of the various
newspapers and magazines belonging
to the association. The Salemite
editors are all working all their mas
terpieces of journalism and we hope
Salem will cotne out near the top.
ANNUAL GOES TO PRESS
Goodness! Commencement is al
most here. Besides the election of the
new officers for 1921-22, this fact was
more clearly brought to our attention
several days ago when the annual
went to press. Maybe, not according
to custom, we’ll have our annuals to
furnish amusement on the train dur
ing our journey home.
We’re living in hopes.
Y. W. NOTES
At the last meeting of the College
y. W. C. A., Mrs. Rondthaler ended
her interesting series of lectures on
South America. In these talks, she
has told something of the geography
of the country, its two distinct social
classes, and numerous facts about its
girls and women. She brought in,
also, the effect of the Roman Catholic
church on the life of the people of
South America, and the great need of
self sacrificing missionaries. The lec
tures were interesting as well as in
structive and all who heard them have
a much better realization of condi
tions as they really are in this sister
land of ours.
MISS BL.4IR CALLED AWAY
Miss Rosannah Blair, our very effi
cient librarian, has been called to her
home in Carlyle, Pennsylvania, on ac
count of the illness and death of her
father. We deeply sympathize with
Miss Blaii in hci boreavtiiieni,.
