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. ‘Vote For the Girl Who Fills the Bill” They are with us continually; more’s the pity. A suspicion of a rumor is breathed, it is passed on, and grows in the telling until it would seem that the entire faculty is up in arms, and about to visit inevitable scourges upon us; that the council is rushing to de struction along with the rest of the! school; 01 that some other gross per-! secution or rash event is about to occur. Why is it that bad news travels so much faster than the other kind? Is it so enviable to be the first one to spread the lurid, pessimistic report, or to be the loudest knocker of the auth orities, or vhe inventor of personal slander ? Don’t tell us it’s Salem nature. It’s not! “Vote For the Girl Who Fills the Bill” SO IT IS 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 navy blue. 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 final test of our daily work will come. THE FIRST GRADUATING RE CITAL-GIVEN BY MISS NANCY HANKINS. 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 ment. SENIOR EXAM. EXEMPTION DEFEATED Much to the sorrow of the present senior class—and we may add—of the incoming seniors, the faculty disap proved of the 80% exam, exemption for seniors; and this privilege was not granted. “Vote For the Girl Who Fills the Bill” CONTEST AMONG MEMBERS OF PRESS ASSOCIATION 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.
