POTEAT’S ADDEESSS “Dr. Rondthaler told me in a letter, I think, that 1772 was the birthday of Salem College. -I look ed up, just for fun, in a list of dates, other notable occasions in 1772, and, although my search was not very persistnet or very long, I found almost nothing of import ance in 1772 except the founding of Salem College. I did see that Thomas Jeffersan was married in 1772, and not to be partial to the Democrats, that Alexander Hamil ton landed from the West Indies in New York. So perhaps you have kept the year almost entirely to yourselves.” SFECIAIi FEATUEES MAJpi FOUNDEES’ DAY SIGNIFI CANT EVENT AT SALEM “Founders’ Day means recogni tion of those who have gone before us in the roles of leaders and stu dents, and it is for this reason that we welcome the alumnae so cordial ly.

A On Feburary 1st when the alum nae of Salem College came flocking onto the eampus in honor of Salem Day, or as it is being called this year, “Home Coming Day,” they were greeted with the fact (charming or not?), that they must turn back the years, whether many or few, and from February 1st to 3rd they must bo schoolgirls again. Again they are to live in the dormi tory, the Louisa Wilson Bitting Building, where space had been re served for them, and really share in the college life. Aside from the many entertainments which are be- ing given in their honor, that have regular classes to attend, the purpose of which, is to make them fully ac quainted with all the phases of the lifa and work of Salem today.

And of course, attendance at chapel is requested. They could not be fully accounted students, unless they complied with this rule The student body of Salem College is glad to have its number so greatly augmented and hopes that the “new students” are enjoying their extra school days and not “studying” too hard.
