SELF-KNOWLEDGE IS IM PORTANT FACTORINUFE Overcome Inferiority Complex 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 selves. Dr. Haupert gave illustrations of how lack of self-knowledge may re sult in fear or other personality problems. 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.

STUDENTS CHARGED FOR UBRARY USE $1.00 Per Quarter Charged To Use Salem College Library 100 Years Ago The announcement of the plan for a $100,000 library for Salem brings to light interesting facts pertaining to Old Salem, found among the rec ords at Williamsburg, Va.

The catalogue found by Miss (Continued On Page Three) 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 Cliristians. Dr. Haupert was introduced by Mary Frances Hayworth, president of the Y. W. C. A.

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 these were: 1. A job or career, a way and means of earning a living. 2. Mating, marriage and family life. 3. What part should youth play in the total governmental system of the world ? 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 destiny. 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 first four. 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 tive unimportance. 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 state institution. 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 prevalent. Even in the U. S. the old family (Continued On Page Four)
