They sit slouched as far down in their seats as they can possibly get so tliat their neck can rest on the back of the seat. As well as being unbecoming to a young lady, this position is extremely bad on one’s spinal col umn. And, too, how would you like to be up on the stage trying your best to entertain, only to look out into the audi ence and see some members in it unattentively sprawled? Sit up, girls, and pay attention to the speaker. Remember “Do iinto others as you would have them do unto you.” —B. S. IT’S TIME TO BEGIN! Now that the basketball season has started in earnest, it is up to everyone of us S'alemites to support our teams w'hole- heartedly. Whether we take part in the games as player or spectator, it is our duty (pleasant one, at that) to boost our classmates at every opportunity. Since Salem does not play intercollegiate games zeal ous backing is particularly necessary. There is no reason why an intramural game should not draw as much, or even more atten tion, as one which has been widely publicized in the local and state press. So let s get down to the gym and shout ourselves hoarse or run ourselves vt^ary to make this season a real suc cess. —M. M. M. COIN FRANCAIS ‘L’Aurore aux Tropiques: Impres sion du soleit levant i £lo de Janeiro” Cette semaine-ci nous avons le plaisir de presenter deux themes par deux de nos petites soeurs de I’Aeademie. Ou’il nous soit permis de feliciter ces demoiselles sur I’ex- cellenee de leurs compositions, et de leur souhaiter la bienvenu de notre Coin frangais. La lumiSre de L’ aurore se m@le avec la nuit noire, et les premiers rayons du soleil brillent obscurSment dans le cieL Pendant tout le temps les ehatnes apr^s chaines des mon- tagnes ressemblent & de grotesques figures noires, contre le lustre du soleil levant. Gris, vert, bleu, jaune, orange, et rouge se remplacent I’un aprSs I’autres et guand toutes les petites lampes scintillantes dia- paraissent de la terre — quand tout est en silence, — attendant — le soleil se I6ve en toute sa splendeur. Plus haut et plus haut il se leve et un autre jour commence. he Bourgeois Oentillionune “Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme” est une comfidie Icrite par Jean-Bap- tiste Poquelin, dit Moil^re. O’est I’histoire d’un homme qui est de- venu riche dans le commerce des draps. Avec I’acquisition des biens il a acquis aussi des idles de gentil homme. II veut imiter les nobles en tout. En consequence 11 prend des maitres d'aimes, de philosopfaie, de musique, et de danse. La scdne VI, de I’acte II, est une des plus-droles et plus risibles sc&nes de la eomedie. Dans cette scfine M. Jourdain, “Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme,” prend une lecon de pKilosophie. En principe il dit qu’il veut apprendre toutes les sciences roais il termine par ap prendre senlement les voyelles. C’est dans cett'e sc6ne ridicule que M. Jourdain fait la dficouverte qu’il parle de la prose depuis Quarantes annfies. “Par ma foi,” dit-il, “il y a plus de quarante ans que je dis de la prose sans que j’en susse rien.” On voit des allusions k ce passage dans bien des^ autres pieces lit6r- aires. Par tout dans cette comldie MoliSre se moque des nouveaux riches. L’esprit de Moliere n’est jamais vicieusement satirique, il est toujours bienfaisant et anssi il est toujour bien aime. NOTICE When the honor roll was print ed in the Salemite two weeks ago,, Christine Dunn’s name should have appeared on the B plus list. Please note the mis take and correction.

An over-fondness for x^o^er and wealth and a love of dress are sometimes to be found in the women of this month.

Mother.” GOSSIP Gossip is a small grey mouse burrowing into anyone’s house. It is the darling pet of her who strokes its silver electric fur: and whispers slyly “Run, oh run, discover what My friend has done! You can tell sweet tales if you but hurry! Purr and pry, my pet, and scurry!” Gossip’s a mouse with beady eyes and sharp small teeth and little cries. Frances Frost MUSIC NOTES MUSIC HOUR Music Hour program for Thurs day, February 22.
