SELF-KNOWLEDGE IS IM
In Friday morning’s chapel, Dr.
Haupert discussed the importance of
self-knowledge in overcoming dif
ficulties. In a study of self there
must be absolute honesty; it is well
to begin with the acknowledgement
that we know very little about our
Dr. Haupert gave illustrations of
how lack of self-knowledge may re
sult in fear or other personality
Self study is an aid towards get
ting along with other people. In
the Sermon on the Mount are given
some valuable rules along this line.
One of these is “Judge not that
ye be not judged.” This means not
to condemn people for their faults,
and not to be continually trying to
pick out only bad things in a per
sonality. Judging people in this
manner is evidence of an inferiority
complex. This is evidenced in gos
sip, envy, and suspicion.

The announcement of the plan for

to light interesting facts pertaining
to Old Salem, found among the rec

Miss Mary Katherine Thorpe, an
alumna of Salem, who is doing
special work at Williamsburg, found
among the McGavock papers a Salem
catalogue for 1837, exactly 100 years

On Thursday morning Dr. Ray
mond Haupert opened the series of
conferences wliich he is conducting
here, at the chapel hour.
The theme of Dr. Haupert’s ad
dress was the utilization of the vast
resources which we as Christians
have. Citing the works of noted
psychologists, he showed how those
people with mental problems, such
as fear, were nearly always non-
Christians. Timidity, false pride,
boasting, jealously, anger are all
signs of an inadequacy or inferiority,
conscious or unconscious. Such faults
are not to be condemned, but may
be overcome by a full utilization of
tliose tilings which belong to us as

MRS. OVERTON SPEAKS
AT Y. P. M.
Needs of Youth Discussed
In expanded chapel Wednesday
Mrs. Grace Sloan Overton talked on
women’s changing position in the
home today all over the world by
answering the questions “do we
need a new family pattern?” Mrs.
Overton said that young women of
today asked to be treated as human
beings and given an equal chance
with men, only in a feminine setting.
At a meeting of the United Front
for Youth which Mrs. Overton at
tended in Chicago last week the five
major needs of youth today were dis
cussed. In descending importance
1. A job or career, a way and
means of earning a living.
2. Mating, marriage and family
3. What part should youth play in
the total governmental system of the
Mrs. Overton said that when she
was in Russia and Germany the youth
asked her how American youth could
act so naive as to think that they
were not affected by the rest of the
world. In Germany 80 per cent of
tho youths belong to some political
organization or movement. Ameri
can youth is just learning how the
politics, of the world determine their
However, women in both these
countries have been driven back into
the homes, not for love but for breed
ing purposes only, to raise a larger
army for their country. Mrs. Over
ton said that the type of government
we had determined our future so
American women had better look
well to democracy.
4. Personal problems. The United
States needs more people with whom
its youth might confer about their
own personal problems and receive
help witliout fear of having them
divulged in lectures and articles.
5. A philosophy of life. Mrs.
Overton said that she would put this
first because she feels it is of great
est importance bnt that the com
mittee felt that a philosophy of life
was achieved through tho first four
and therefore placed it last. Relig
ious belief is a direct result of the
After showing tho relationship of
this with the whole problem of life
Mrs. Overton isolated this need and
talked on it.
Mrs. Overton said that women to
day are growing up about life. Girls
no longer die of broken hearts or
isolate small problems from the
whole of life, not realizing its rela
Mrs. Overton continued by answer
ing the question, what has happened
to family life in Russia, Germany
and the Orient. The home is the
pivoting unit of any society. In
Russia it is the belief that although
parents may be the only ones to
produce children, they may not be
the ones to train them. This is be
cause 80 per cent of Russian parents
are illiterate and not capable of
training good citizens for the state,
Ro it is up to the state to build its
own citizens. After a generation has
been raised in this way the home
can be re-established.
In Germany Hitler has decreed
that no women can hold strategic po
sitions and only 10 per cent of men
and women in universities can be
women. Women must spend from
eighteen months to two years in
some home learning to keep house
just as men must serve in the army.
Tho home in Germany has become a
In the Orient old ideas and the
old home order has gone. New ideas
of home and marriage similar to
those of Russia and Germany are now
