Why the dark circles under everybody’s eyes? Why the
disordered hair and bitten fingernails? Can’t you guess the
reasons for these strange abnormalities on the Salem campus?
Term papers, of course! Don’t they come every year at this
time? But if term papers come, can spring be far behind
However, since spring is here, come on, chillun, and let’s trudge
on v^ith our hollow eyes, disordered hair, and bitten fingernails,
bearing in mind the consolation that when spring comes, term
papers will soon l)e far behind.
The schedule for the remainder of the year seems to be
full of musical attraction with Salem talent predominating.
Few of us realize how much work goes into one of these
programs. If any one person or group of persons is presenting
a recital, it means that not only weeks of practice and study
have gone into the makeup of the program but years of hard
Salem students who are giving their graduating recitals
this year have spent four years of concentrated eSfort on their
particular form of music. Yet fewer people attend Music Hour
and the other recitals than almost any other type of entertain
ment on the campus.
One does not necessarily have to be a music student to
appreciate these recitals. If one is in A. B. or a Home Eco
nomics major, listening to good music should afford you re
laxation. I am not a music student, nor have I had a musical
education; yet I enjoy going to these recitals and hearing my
classmates play or sing and realize that in doing so I am giv
ing them some incentive to work harder.
We owe our appreciation to the authorities of the school
for realizing that on this campus we lacked to a certain degree
that perspective which Dr. William Elliot has given us.
He has not only won the hearts of Salemites by his contagious
smile and winning personality, but also by his message and dis
cussions which have caused all of us to start thinking. Dr. El
liot, who contacts hundreds of people in his church in Atlanta,
has shown us an understanding of young people which makes
his message strike straight home. This understanding has help
ed us solve many of the problems with which we are faced today.
Salemites are truly grateful for the help Dr. Elliot has
been to us.
WTiat is this life if, full of care.
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like stars at night.
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance.
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait until her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care.
We have no time to stand and stare.
William H. Davies.
DAYS TO SHORT
When Primroses are out in Spring
And small, blue violets come between;
When merry birds sing on boughs green.
And vills, as soon as born, must sing;
When butterflies will make side-leaps.
As though escaped from Nature’s hand
Ere perfect quite; and bees will stand
Upon their heads in fragrant deeps;
When small clouds are so silvery white
Each seems a broken rimed moon —
When such things are, this world too soon,
For me, doth wear the veil of night.
William H. Davies.

YOU’RE ONLY YOUNG
By Reece Thomas
Somewhere in the distance she
heard a feeble squeak that vaguely
reminded her of her own voice.
Gosh, she’d never realized before
just how queer her monotone did
sound. From deep down inside her
a huge lump was rising up into her
throat to cut off even that tremb
ling tone which tried in vain to
reach the back of the room. She
swallowed and went bravely on, but
somehow she couldn’t say all those
nice words she’d planned.
There must have been a thousand
eyes watching her from that sea of
faces. Could all those people be
laughing at her? The very thought
sent little waves of terror through
her body, and the knocking of her
knees rivaled a drum corps. In her
heart she made a solemn vow never
to do this sort of thing again. Why
should she go through the mental
agony and become old long before
her day? Why line her face with
care and slowly ruin her health?
After all, you’re only young once.
Then suddenly it was all over. She
heard herself mumble a weak “thank
you” while the audience uttered a
sigh of relief. With the same old
fear gnawing at her heart, she stag-
gered slowly back to her seat. What
could she say the next time she had
to make an announcement in chapel?
