Speaks To Salem ‘ ‘ The solution of industrial and social problems lies in the hands of thinking college women,” Miss Har riet Elliott told Salem College and Academy students in expanded chaji el Wednesday morning. Miss Elliot is dean of women and profes»8or of political scienee at the Woman’s Co) ege of the University of North Caro lina. In her talk, the subject of which was “Pioneers of the Present,” Mis.-i Elliot challenged the students with the problem of better houses, better health, and adecjuate education for all. Closely tied up with these prob lems is the problem of wages and finances. The solution of these ques tions cannot be wrought overnight. Miss Elliot pointed ont. To provide homes for the millions who are now living in houses not worthy of the name of home, tn meet the pressing need of medical care for those in poor financial cir cumstances, and to correct the in equality of educational advantages — these are the problems which merit the attention of the thinking student. ' : “But are we interested in tht «ti- ution sufficiently to saerifiee by paying higher taxes or raising wagc^ or suffering a reduction on our stock,, and bonds t” asked Misg .Elliot. Any government assistance would result in higher taxes. Better homes and a good health program would lioth necessitate this. : “If you are going to be a pioneer in and of today, you must have phyaieal courage, infciligence, and imagina tion just as the pioneers of old,” AJiss* Elliot concluded.
