THE ATHLETIC YEAR CLOSES
Miss Crowell Crowned Queen.
This year the May day celebration
included the deposition of King Winter
and the acquisition to the throne of
the Queen of May. These ceremonies
under the direction of the Annual staff
took place on the lower campus.
Wh:n the crowd assembled they saw
seated on the throne of honor an effigy
of King Winter. Miss Mary Bradham
and Miss Lois Crowell, dressed as
snow elves, came forw'ard and bowed
before their king. They discussed the
unpopularity of old King Winter, who
on account of his rough, rude ways,
had made many enemies. The more
they talked the more they were con
vinced that their old ruler was doomed,
so when the two elves heard the joyous
hubbub that announced the coming of
the May Queen’s followers, they
turned their coats, literally and figur
atively, and wore no longer Winter’s
livery of white but the gay-colored
garments of spring.
The followers of the May Queen
poured down the hill in a bright and
happy throng to depose the Snow
King. Ihey dragged King Winter
from his throne and hurled him into

They will aid the staff in getting up
material for publication and in bring

about the two May poles, while the
others stood expectantly beside the
empty throne. Miss Ruth Crowell, as
Queen of the May, came forward and
ascended the throne. She wore a
white dress and carried a corsage of
roses and lilies of the valley. Her first
attendant was Miss Alice Lyerly.
The ceremony was concluded with a

FIRE CAPTAIN AND SONG
LEADER FOR 1923-24
Although the school year is old, the
Student Council and president are new,
and their first meeting was held last
Monday in the recreation room. Miss
Elizabeth Leight was unanimously
elected fire chief, and we feel sure that
she will be a brave and hardy captain.
The song leader, of course, is “Pee-
Wee” alias Miss Eloise Chessom.
The departing Seniors evidently
view us with compassion, for several
amendments were suggested by mem
bers of their class. One was that we
be allowed to go out sometimes with
out getting permission, merely signing
up in the register. Other amendments
suggested were that Seniors might go
to matinees with young men and that
Juniors might walk within limits after
quiet hour on Sunday. It was a most
successful meeting, and we believe that
the next year will be a happy and suc
cessful one under the new adminis

against the weakened class, she took
her pace at the bat again with a de

It was in the second round, when the
attraction of everyone was turned sky

resounded from the heavens. Thus, it
was the will of Jupiter that the game
should be in favor of the upper class

school faculty, and graded school
teachers will be enrolled in the classes
along with college Juniors and Seniors.
Such an arrangement will do away
\vith the necessity of summer school
work in education for teachers.
The fact that the music school is to
have its headquarters in Memorial
Hall is indicative of the harmony ex
isting between the City of Winston-
Salem and Salem College. The new
arrangement in the Department of
Education will help to cement the re
lationship. Such a condition makes
the position of Salem undeniably
unique for there are very few cities in
which a college is so much a part of
