VOL. XVII. WINSTON-SALEM, N. C., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1937. GOAL SET IN LIBRARY FUND IS PASSED MISS SIEWERS DESCRIBES NEW UBRARY Speaks At Y. P. M. In expanded chapel Wednesday morning we heard what we have been waiting for, for a long time— Miss Grace Siewers gave us the plans and a detailed description of the new library — a new library that is one of the biggest things that has ever happened to Salem, and coming at a time like this it is more than ever welcomed. Miss Siewers pictured to us the library in all its splendor and glory, and when she finished, each girl was able to see herself sitting in front of the fire in a comfortable chair in the reading room or lounging around in that most delightful place, the brows ing room. The entrance to the building is di rectly opposite Alice Clewell. It opens into a vestibule, which faces the delivery desk. Behind this desk are shelves for reserve books, etc. On the right is the west wing, which faces the square. This is the read ing room and is two stories high. It will contain the current periodicals, bound periodicals and reference books. At the western end of the room will be a large fireplace with comfortable chairs and sofas group ed around it. On the side of the room is a French door leading onto a terrace equipped with tables and chairs for studying in warm weather. On the left of the entrance is the stock room, which will be open to every one. Across the corrider from it is the librarian’s office, the cata logue room, and the work room. All the typewriting, mending, etc will go on here and not interfere with the reading room. On the second floor over the Cata- logce room is a browsing room. This will be furnished just like a per sonal library in one’s own home — a fireplace, sofas, soft chairs, floor lamps, etc. No studying allowed, for there will be only new books, lovely old editions, etc. Across the cor ridor is another stack room. On the third floor is another stack room, a treasure room, a room for scrapbooks and all material relating to Salem and rooms for student- faculty discussions. In the basement is a room for re ceiving packages, a small kitchen making it possible to have teas, and a room underneath the reading room with a fireplace for discussion groups etc. rngmmmmmm ii:; ? ..

COMIC BALLET TO BE HERE NEXT WEEK ATHLETIC COUNCIL PARTY BIG SUCEESS Last Saturday Night at Nine o’Clock Mrs. Ball Is The Speaker The Home Ec. Club met Tuesday night in Main Hall. Mrs Mildred Ball gave a very interesting illus trated lecture on Handcraft. First Mrs. Ball outlined the purposes of handcraft, then she enumerated the results, exhibiting pieces ox her own work to illustrate these results. She explained the”diflerent meth- ods of decorating cloth, the interest ing things which can be made from wood and the use of plaster of paris in making masks and in supplement ing other art problems. Meta] and silver work were illustrated by jew elry, etc., made by Mrs. Ball. Pot tery and clay-working were mention ed and examples shown. This type of work is emphasized in the Industrial Arts class of the Home Economics Department here. One might observe a long line of young men on their way to the gym, and walking beside them our very own Salemites, all decked out in the latest gowns and coiffures. What a grand party it was and how much fun everyone had! The guests were cordially greeted at the door by a receiving line composed of faculty and trustees, and soon afterwards by the incomparable music of Freddy Johnson and his Carolina orchestra. The party lasted from nine to twelve, with a half-hour respite in which one mightdrink punch or wan der up and down on the terrace out side. But the crowning glory of the whole was the figure which the ath letic council presented, led by Miss Atkinson and Mr. McEwen, closely followed by Sara Sherwood, presi dent of the athletic association, and her date. It was a wonder to be hold — intriaey and perfection. Every member of the council wore a white dress, and every date a tuxedo, and no one made a single mistake! It was brought to a triumphant close by the formation of the letter S. Twelve o’clock came before any one realized or wished for it, and as the happy crowd climbed the steps to upper campus, everyone agreed that it was the nicest party Salem has ever given. Civic Music Concert February 12 The Civic Music Association will present on Wednesday night, Feb ruary 17, in Reynolds Memorial Aud itorium, one of the most unusual and interesting performances ever given in Winston-Salem. Trudi Schoop and her comic ballet will present impish, vigorous, and humorous pantomimes. Trudi Schoop in ‘ ‘ Want Ads, ’ ’ the first ballet on her program shows the tragic-comedies which result in news paper advertisements such as “For sale — never worn wedding gown” and “Honest woman in middle fif ties seeks acquaintance — object, matrimony. ’ ’ The second half of the program, Fridolin on the Road” includes a gay series of adventures about the stupidities of physical culture ad dicts, fanatical religious cults, moth ers-in-law, and bowling tournaments. The performance, showing the dance, theatre, tragic-comedy, will be given by a company of twenty- two actor-dancers who have won great success in America and in Europe. Trudi Schoop is considered an actress like Elizabeth Bergner, a comedienne like Charlie Chaplin, and a dancer like Anna Pavolova.” PROGRAM OF CHORAL ORGAN MUSIC Home Moravian Choir At Vespers The choir at Home Moravian Church presented choral and organ music from the work of Bach at Vespers Sunday evening. The soloists were Miss Mayme Porter, soprano; Miss Jane Rond- thaler, contralto; Mr. Clifford Bair, tenor; Mr. Thompson Shouse, bari tone, and Mr. Brooks Bynum, bass. Two choral preludes followed by singing of the chorales on which they were based were played on the or gan. “What God Doth Surely That is Right,” Bach’s i98th Cantata, writ ten for the twenty-first Sunday after Trinity, was presented at the latter part of the service. Dean Charles G. Vardell, dean of the Salem College School of Music, organist at Home Moravian Church, directed the vespers musical pro gram. STUDENTS AND FACULTY SHOW GREAT INTEREST Expect $2000 Mark To Be Reached MRS. CAMPBELL HAS OPEN HOUSE MOZART CLUB PRO GRAM PRESENTED “Epochs of Musical Progress” The second of the series of studies ‘ ‘ Epochs of Musical Progress ’ ’ fol lowed the business sessions of the Mozart Club at the Robert E. Lee Hotel, Tuesday evening at 8:15 o’clock. Mrs. Evrett Straley was in charge of the program.

Tea Room In Former Winkler’s Bakery Mrs. J. P. Campbell had ‘ ‘ open house” for the faculty and students of Salem College and Academy, Thursday and Friday of this week at her new tea room, the “Carter- ette,” located in the old Winkler’s bakery on Main Street. The whole building has been re modeled and redecorated and is now a charming setting for a tea room. Mrs. Campbell derived her color scheme from the Carter coat-of-arms, which contains red and blue. The furniture is coronation blue and the glass is dubonnet red. In the South end of the lajgest room there is a large open fireplace with an antique mantel. On the mantel there are Blue Willow plates and antique glass. On one side of the fireplace there is an old spinning wheel and chintz chair. There are several old engravings on the panelled walls. The wine cellar is now the lounge. The alcove where the wine vat used to stand still remains. Beginning to-day, the tea room will be open to customers. Students and faculty of the col lege and academy met Dr. Rond thaler’s challenge and in 22 hours raised over the goal set at $1,500 towards the new library. At present $1,638.25 has been pledged and it is believed that the fund would reach the $2,000 mark in a few daya. The greater part of the needed money has already been raised, but about $15,000 remained to be sub scribed, and the student challenge was the first step towards this. Now it is hoped that the students will tell their families of the proj ect and ask them to co-operate. Mr. Agnew Bahnson is Chairman of the Building committee. He has worked untiringly, as have others who were co-operating with him. Regarding work already done, the Building Committee has issued the following statement: In the fall of 1935, Northrup & O’Brien, architects, started work on preliminary sketches for Salem Col lege Library. Plans and also a per spective drawing of the building were completed March 11, 1936, and these were submitted for criticism to leading authorities of the United States, including Dr. Louis R. Wil son of Chicago, president of the ■ American Library Association, and Dr. C. C. Williamson, director of the Columbia unit library and dean of Columbia University School of Library Science. The committee wishes to empha size two things. First, the building of a library for Salem College is the result of a need that has been rec ognized for many years and actual plans were made before activity for a new public library started.
