DELIGHTS BIG AUDIENCE
Unusual Program Presented
The Civic Music Association of
Winston-Salem presented the famous
Gordon String Quartet, Monday
night at 8:30 in the Eeynolds Audi
torium Mr. Ralph Hanes, Chairman
of the Talent Committee, announced
before the program began, that this
was the first time there had been
the proper demand and sufficient
funds for a Chamber Music concert.
The large audience was unusually
appreciative of the delicate artistry
of the four musicians.
It is an unusual treat to hear a
Beethoven Quartet played by four
gentlemen, each one having peculiar
talen.ts of a virtuoso, and yet play
ing together with perfect ensemble.
The Beethoven Quartet in D major
was their best offering.
For a second group, the Quartet
played “Three Idylls” by Frank
Bridge, a contemporary British com
poser. These reflected the Romantic
school of the middle 19th century.
Borodin’s “Xocturne” was played
as an encore.
The Haydn “Serenade” which
followed was exquisitely played hy
Mr. Gordon with the Pizzicato ac
companiment by the other three in
struments. From the Eussian School
of Music, Mr. Gordon selected the
“Valse” by Glazounow who has
been called the Brahms of Russian
mu.sic. Following the “Valse” was
the whimsical “Lonely Shepherd”
by Spaeight. Moussongsky w'as one
of the outstanding writers of the Im
pressionistic school. His “Gossiping
and Quarrelling” show'ed his rigor
ous humor and delicate colors. The
“French Serenade” by Lalo, and
Percy Giiainger’s “ir/olly on the
Shore ’ ’ were the last encores. The
program, as a whole, was perfect in
choice of numbers — representing
every development of the String
Quartet as a form of chamber music
—and perfect in ensemble and ar
Superior Issue Stuns
The Class of 1937 ,in which there
lies much unsung talent, is submit
ting to the public a paper which
should arouse, if not the admiration,
at least the sympathy of the readers.
Criticism of the paper will not be
misunderstood, but will be accepted
in the same spirit as criticism of
past attempts has been accepted —
with a smile of contempt for your
lack of appreciation for the better
things in life.
And thus it is that the Sophomore
Class issues this superb edition with
the sincere hope that you may recog
nize our literary ability more readily
than you received our musical effort!
EVENING WATCH SER
VICES PROVE SUCCESS
Shall They Be Continued?
At intervals during the past few
months evening watch services have
been held at ten o’clock in the T
room. Sometimes a selection from
Tagore’s “The Gardener,” or “The
Prophet,” has been read by a mem
ber of the Y Cabinet. Then again
the entire time has been devoted to
the singing of hymns.
Bo these services mean anything
to you? To many girls, the sim
plicity of the service appeals; to
others, the informality; to some, a
quiet moment devoted to spiritual
thoughts just before going to bed
comes as a joy and comfort.
The Y is open to any suggestion
you would like to make as to the im
provement or continuation of these

Dr. Rondthalcr told us this morn
ing that being Christian was not an
extra activity to be fitted into our
spare hours but an activity to be
incorporated in our working hours
as well. He pointed out that Christ
in choosing His disciples had not
called men who had much spare time,
but men who were busy, such as
Peter and Janies and John. In 1887
a papyrus was found in the valley
of the Nile with seven sentences sui>
posed to be said by Christ. Six of
them were known to be in the gos
pel of the Sermon on the Mount, but
the seventh was new. It referred
to finding Christ .in one’s work. Al-
thougli it was unfamiliar, the
thought was in direct relationship
with the choice Christ made in His
The entire chapel services was de
voted to an eulogy of Mrs. Council
who was, until the time of her death,
Salem’s oldest living alumna. She
was born December 1832 in Sumter,
S. C., a daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
■Tefferson Bostwick and at the age of
fourteen entered Salem. About three
years ago Dr. Eondthalor visited her,
and she recalled pictures of Salem
as slie had know’n it many years ago.
We little realize the great extent of
time embodied in one hundred and
tw'o years as time past seems short
in comparison to time to come. Dr.
Eondthaler tried to show us how
long she had lived by such illustra
tions as these. Wlien Mrs. Council
was born, the seventh President of
the United States was in office, since
then there have been thirty-two.
Arkansas was admitted into the
Union when she was grown. She was
the first woman in N. C. to own a
sewing machine. In finishing Dr.
Eandthaler read Proverbs 31:10-31,
the contents of which give the
characteristics of a virtuous woman.

Notes Benefits of Fellow
On Tuesday evening, January 15,
at eight o’clock the regular monthly
meeting of the Winstjolli-Salem
branch of the American Association
of University Women was held
in the recreation room of the Louisa
Wilson Bitting Building..
Miss Lucille Delano, instructor
at Queens College, was the si>eak-
er of the evening. Her subject,
which is the third in the series, “To
day’s Challenge,” was “Today’s
Study Abroad.” This was based
upon her study and observations dur
ing the year she spent in Europe
under a fellowship from the A. A.
Mias Delano did research work in
Madrid and in the British Museum
in London in a search for her dis
sertation, “A Study of the Sonnets
in Lopes de Vegar’s Plays,” which
is part of the work necessary for
her Ph. D. degree. The search for
those sonnets. Miss Delano writes,
‘ ‘ required leafing many dusty tomes,
but finding one interesting sonnet
repaid hours of futile labor .... I
even found a few sonnets in obscure
places, as, for instance, tw’o in a
preface to a treatise on medicine,
In'Madrid she studied at the Cen
tro de Estudios Historieos, and she
colected valuable material at the
Of the many intangible benefits
of a fellowship year, over and above
the definite results of the research
Miss Delano writes, “It has taught
me more than years of attendance
in university classes. I liave known
a new world, a very old one, of
course, crammed with historical and
artistic interest. To have all this,
and to have had at the same time
satisfaction in the fulfillment of
my work is all that I have ever
wished and aimed ftor fxaid more
tlian I even hoped to find. For the
realization of my aspirations I am
sincerely grateful to the American
Association of University Women.”

SPEAKS AT VESPERS
MISS SOPHIE MORE
Dancing Ability—Ethel High-
Speaks on “A Definite Pur
pose in Life”
Our vespers speaker Sunday night
was the Reverend Mr. Gordon
Spaugh who spoke to us on “ A Defi-1
nite Purpose in Life.” He expressed |
the belief that even those of us who I
appear most frivolous think of the |
serious things of life at times.
“It is necessary to have a definite
purpose in life, for if don’t know
where we are going we are running
in circles,” said Eev. Spaugh. Stan
ley Jones and Dave Thayer were
cited as examples of great men who
had a purpose which overcame all
Eev. Spaugh confessed that it was
impossible for him to tell us our
purpose in life, but there is a definite
plan for each of us if we will only
look for it carefully.
The purposes which could under
lie all professions were discussed.
Wealth, pleasure, and fame were
shown to be only temporary pur
poses. We were convinced that the
welfare of others is the under-gird-
ing purpose in life. This was the
principle of Christ’s teachings and
He will bring the desire to help
others into our hearts, and lift us
up into the kingdom of God.
Salem College and Salem Academy
have the right to be regarded as a
musical centers, for these two insti
tutions were founded in an atmos
phere of music and their way has
been enriched with the joys of music
The pioneers who settled Salem in
17()5 and who founded Salem College
seven years later brought with them
more musical in.strumenta than
weapons, notwithstanding the pio
neer conditions under which they
were to settle. And appropriately
enough they were more than once
saved from Indian attack and massa
cre by the music which, all unknown
to them, was heard by night-lurking
savages who assumed that the com
munity was on the alert and pre
pared against attack.
In two fields of music early Salem
expressed its deeper feelings, i e., re
ligious and classical. Nearly every
one of the colonists played upon
some instrument and all sang, even
including the night watchman 'who
greeted each change of the hour with
an appointed hymn, sung at the
crossing of the streets.
Very early in Salem’s history a
church organ, one of the very few
then known anywhere in North
Carolina, was built in the Home
Church and another, still in use,
was built for the church at Bethania,
nine miles north and the last fron
tier town westward.
Spinets, the early jnanos, began to
appear in Salem, then the harp and
the usual string and wind instru
ments, with orchestra organization
Sunday afternoons were frequent
ly given to orchestral presentations
and in this manner many of the
classics were rendered in days when
wilderness conditions siirrounded Sa
Early compositions especially of a
religious nature were frequent and
fortunately a large number of such
original manuscripts are preserved.
Thus when George Washington visit
ed the College and the Church in
1791 a part of hi.s entertainment was
presented in terms of music and
when .Salem learned of Washington’s
death a special memorial liturgical
service wa.s appointed to which were
contributed several original composi
tions still fully preserved and re
cently rendered in connection with
the Washington Bi-centennial in

The Eev. Gordon Spaugh led in
