Pilot shortly after General Romulo’s visit to Salem. “The girls of Salem College have picked a short-haired, high-ranking world diplomat qs their 1955. “Sweetheart.” He’s Gen. Carlos P. Romulo, chairman of the Philip pines delegation to the United Na tions, and former UN president, who made a speaking appearance at Salem last Monday, just as the annual sweetheart roll neared its climax. “Fqur students placed his name in nomination on Tuesday mSrning, and General. Romulo swept to an amazing victory. He bowled aside such worthy opponents as fathers, favorite boy friends, and brothers. “When the votes—at a penny a piece—had been counted, he had 2,300 of them.” Giving me her warm smile and slow Southern drawl, Jane com mented, “I just love Salem already Living in South makes me feel right at home ’cause it’s like the dorms I’m used to. Of course, I’m baffled over having to remem ber so many names and so many people. Yes, I feel almost swamp ed by all the work right now, but I find I’m already enjoying it so much.” I’m sure this attractive, efficient young lady is good publicity for Salem herself. Jane received her Bacheldr of Arts degree from Sweet Briar in government. This was an excellent preparation for winning her A. B. degree in jour nalism at Carolina the next year. Her experience as a reporter has been with the Norfolk-Virginian Pilot at Suffolk for two summers. Jane exclaimed, “It was good ex perience in working on a daily paper but the beat was so terrific. It took me a long time to catch on to the fact that to endure it, you had to move in slow motion.” Her next position was with her hometown paper for which she wrote news and feature articles. For three weeks Jane will be living in South Hall before she moves into her apartment over the Community Store across the Square from Salem College. She still feels so much like a student that the transition to becoming a member of the “other party” is yet hard to make. Jane _ said, “Sitting at the faculty table,, seems particularly odd to me. It seems I should be with the students instead. It’s like being in the right church but the wrong pew. And if any of the girls call me “Miss Carter”, I don’t know what I’ll do . . . prob ably what I unthinkingly said when I was introduced once, “Qh, my name is Carter, too!” Frosh Answer Questionnaire preparing spaghetti dinners. Last year the faculty offered its services in numerous ways. Mr Sandre^ky took Ann Crenshaw to the drive-in, and Irma Gatewood dined with Mr. Medlin at the Ro bert E. Lee. A chic new hat was Miss Starr's contribution (you’ve probably seen it perched on Phil Stinnett’s head on Sunday morn ing). Dr. and Mrs. Gramley enter tained four tables of bridge while Miss Marsh gave two girls rides to Florida for Spring vacation. Last year’s nurse, ' Miss Biggers, auctioned off a steak dinner for four served in the seclusion of the infirmary living room — with no chaperones.

Sophs Retain Cage Crown Ann Miles, scoring three points in a “sudden death” overtime, grabbed the sophomore basketball title, 51-48, from the clutches of a determined team of seniors on Wednesday night. The challenging team began to threaten in the third quarter and, with Louise Fike and Jean Currin hitting consistently, cut the sopho mores’ ten-point lead to nothing by the final whistle. Each team scored one basket in the first overtime; the sophomores, after eight futile attempts, scored the clinching two-pointer after two minutes of the second overtime period had elapsed. In the second game of the even ing, the freshmen defeated the jun iors, 45-32, and captured third place in the round-robin tourney. According to statistics compiled by Cookie Kolmer, the sophomores, winning all three possible games, led the team scoring with 154 points, an average of 51 points per game. Sophomore forward Ann Miles led the individual scoring with a total of 64 points in three games. She is followed closely by Nancy Russell, junior manager, with 61; Jean Currin with 58; and Jo Smitherman with 53.
