V^olume XLIX Salem College, Winston-Salem, N. C., Friday, May 12, 1967 Number 4 oynecologist Lectures On Sex Revolution Problems Dr. W. J. May. a prominant ob- tetrician-gynecologist associated vith Bowman Gray School of Medl ine, spoke in assembly May 10 on A Look at the Sex Revolution.” ^ May subtitled his talk “A Per- nanent Man-Woman Relationship.” He began his lecture by stating hat although women are beginning odake over many jobs previously leld by men, he was nevertheless nvious of the girls in the audience ,nd their youth. ■ Dr. May continued saying that he modern sex revolution could lossibly be more accurately termed ex rebellion. Many people today .re striving to change the social tandards of our modern society, njthe 1920’s and 1930’s women were :nown to faint with embarrassment tjan open discussion on sex. Now tiedical science strives to share its :nowledge of sex and reproduction nth everyone. One of the problems which has ome about through this open dis- ussion of sex is the fact that many romen feel as free to practice sex .s do the men. One astonishing tatistic Dr. May shared with the .udience was that in 1965, 25% of .11 Negro babies and 3% of all ifhite babies born in North Carolina ^ere born out of wedlock. He added hat one out of every five or six Irtdes in the United States is preg- lant when married. jDr. May discussed the fact that ■oung people are growing up at an arly age. The price man must pay or his civilization is becoming over- lowering as marriages happen at a founger age and adult opportunities require more and more education. He added that the matter of sex conduct is still primarily the re sponsibility of the girl. In one poll taken in a senior high school church youth group, 90 per cent of the boys stated that they would always go as far with a girl as she would let them. Dr. May made it quite clear that he was not concerned with chastity, but rather with the personal re lationship in a marriage. Young people often ■ ask how much sex is permissable before marriage and whose business is it anyway? Dr. May answered by stating that he and other adults cannot say yes to young people without fear of caus ing a bad marriage relationship in the future. Along with love and marriage come the responsibilities of parenthood. Dr. May concluded his talk by saying that his wish for all young people is that all of them can make some contribution to the present generation to lead them out of what seems to be a general chaos. Leaders Begin 'College Life' College Life, a program for col lege students to examine the Christ ian life informally among them selves, was held for the first time on campus Tuesday night in the Day Student Center.

The Governor’s School is a summer school program for four hundred selected juniors and sen iors from secondary schools in North Carolina. It is organized and run by the State Board of Higher Education. The four hundred high school students are chosen from approxi mately three thousand applicants on the basis of their recommend ations and outstanding academic achievement or artistic ability. These students, who attend school free of charge, live on Salem’s cam pus for eight weeks of the summer in which each studies in depth his own particular field of interest. The fields of study are the follow ing : humanities, natural science, so cial science, mathematics, art, dance, drama and music. The point which makes The Governor’s School dif ferent from any other summer school is that there is emphasis on a given subject on one particular phase of that subject. For example, in mathematics, the program at The Governor’s School moves from showing how to solve contrived problems to more properly asking why the various methods are sound. This method gives the very gifted student a chance to show to him self exactly what and how much he can achieve.

The exhibit will run through June 4. ^ By Laura Eutsler pThe spotlights in the corridors of >alem Fine Arts Center focus once nore on the creations of our grad uating art majors. The five seniors art, Jeannie Yager, Eleanor -auck, and day students, Elaine fucker, Cindy Moore, and Prudy ^^eaver, were on hand Tuesday %ht. May 9 at the reception which ’^cially opened their exhibit. ■iThis year all chose to present an exhibit rather than taking the al- ^native—^writing a thesis. They Wniitted that although the project took hard work and long hours to assemble, it was an exciting experi ence putting up an exhibit. Jeannie Yager comes by her talent naturally. Her family has taken up painting as a hobby, al though Jeannie wants to work seri ously in the field of advertising. She indicates that she enjoys graphics and is interested in doing more work with silkscreens. Jeannie’s favorite work in the exhibit is “Moonlight Over Farmville” which is on loan from a friend. Eleanor Lauck, who started her Dr. Michael Lewis leads discussion among Governor's School stu dents. The Governor's School will be held on the Salem campus again this summer for the fifth consecutive year. ed in a three area concept. The first area is that of aptitude de velopment in the field for which the student has chosen. The se- ond area is that of philosophy of conceptual development which will be under Dr. Michael Lewis, head of Salem’s language department. Students are urged to study the essential ideas of Western tradition and to reintegrate these ideas into conceptual systems which may be relevant to the solution of contem porary problems. The third area, under the direction of Mr. James Bray, also a member of .Salem’s faculty, is that of psychology or personal development. The aim of this area is to aid the individual student in developing his powers of self-reflection and self-expression. Not only is The Governor’s School beneficial to the students, but it also provides a means of studying the gifted student, and his response to differential education. The body of information collected during the summer sessions forms the basis for knowledgeable follow-ups , on students, for continuing experimen tation at the school, and for appre ciation of methods to improve edu cation for other students through out the state. Financed in 1963, 1964, and 1965 by grants from Carnegie Corpora tion of New York and from founda tions and industries of Winston- Salem, the program is now being continued with public funds. The faculty is taken from schools all over the state. Those on the staff besides Dr. Lewis and Mr. Bray are Mr. Donald McLeod, Dean Sand- resky, Mrs. Anna Cooper in the lib rary, Mrs. Esther Mock in the news bureau, and Peggy Booker who will graduate from Salem in June. art endeavors here at Salem, has developed an inclination toward sculpture, portraits, and works with imaginative media. Keeping pace with modern art trends, Eleanor has created her “Old Friends” and “Dr. Eckleberg 1967” which belong to the pop-art classification. (It was calculated that a month’s work went into the making of “Old Friends.”) Elaine Tucker, who came to Salem after two years at Queens College, reflects in some of her works an influence of her study of the ex- pressionistic style of Cezanne. When asked her reaction to the fantastic art trends, Elaine said, “I don’t believe that art just happens. I think it should have a foundation to grow from.” This seems to sum up Elaine’s philosophy of art which is responsible for her decision to pursue a teaching career. Cindy Moore, whose studies were waylaid by her marriage, intends to do more studying in the summer at the University of Maine. Although she plans to take drawing as a course of study, Cindy already en joys working with polymers and oils as her exhibition indicates. Prudy Weaver is finishing at Salem after two years of study here. She prefers to work with constructive types of media but also maintains an interest in graphics and ceramics. She hopes to use her background in later work, perhaps in connection with interior design, teaching, or related fields. The seniors’ exhibit will continue through June 4. Most of the works on display are for sale. Everyone is invited to see that talent that once lay hidden in the basement studios of the Fine Arts Center.

After He bowed to the audi ence he seated himself at the Holt- kamp organ and adjusted the seat and familiarized himself with the keys. First, he played variations on Mein Junges Leben hat ein End by Sweelinck, showing great con trol. He adjusted the stops for each piece himself. In his next piece, Offertoire sur les Grands Jeux by Couperlin-le-Grand, the clear brilliance of tone revealed the beauty of the organ. His program continued with two Chorale-Pre ludes, Nun-komm’ der Heiden Hei- land and In dulce judilo by Buxte hude. In Bach’s Fifth Trio Sonata in Allegro, Largo, and Allegro he revealed his mastery of different passages by making them flow evenly. ■ Also a difficult piece was the Third Chorale in A minor by Franck. , In Messiaen’s Les Bergers M. Marchal captured in music the feel ing of the shepherds at the birth of Christ. His next selection was Postlude pour I’Office des Complies by Alain. A spectacular piece by Vierne, Finale from the Fourth Symphony, which combined various techniques, was smoothly performed by M. Marchal in spite of the great stamina it required of the organist. The final piece listed as Improvisa tion was a fantastic work on the Doxology which included beautiful harmony.
