r I Mayl2, 1967 THE SALEMITE Page Three t alem Holds Dinner For Wxican Foreign Student surprise supper for Martha de la Garza was held in the refectory Wednesday night and was called .a "complete success”. From all re ports Martha had no suspicions concerning the dinner to be held in ler honor. The dinner was organized by the Student Government and close Friends of Martha Student Gov ernment funds were used to buy a basket type pocketbook which was presented to her as representative her stay at Salem. [Since Martha is from Monterey, Mexico, the theme and decorations ^(1 a Mexican flavor. The place jetting went along with this theme, jnd a straw Mexican horse was placed on Martha’s table as a cen ter piece. Mexican welcome posters ^vering the doors to the refectory ind piped in Mexican music added :o the atmosphere. Martha de la Garza, foreign student from Mexico, was honored at a dinner Wednesday night. May 10 in the Refectory. The highlight of the evening was the Mexican style food—Spanish rice, chicken and fresh strawberries. ienior Girls Face Trials sf Comprehensive Exams By Sandra Pappas |Why is May the senior’s favorite onth? It’s the month of Senior pmprehensives, of course! Boxes id stacks of books, notebooks, and Fonarch study guides filled the udy-rooms of both Strong and 3Uth. The first day of May came in ce a lion as senior psychology ajors were greeted with written [imps.’ The ordeal continued iroughout the week as oral com- •ehensives were given. When the sting was over, the psychology ajors were ready for fun in the in. Someone told Betsy Dunn iat olive oil' would help her get le most out of sunbathing. Betsy imediately bought herself a jar of ives and planned on quickly eat- ig the olives and saving the juice ir her tan. Luckily, someone lught her in time. Comps do have [way of getting to one*s head. [English majors shared the experi- ice of having comprehensives the "st of May. W^hile the comps were session, someone thought it ap- •opriate to start spring cleaning 1 second floor Main Hall. Mr. fete Jordan was hailed as the iris’ hero as he dueled with the tcuum cleaner and came out the ttor. Dr. William White, head of |e English Department, has pro- ised to treat his majors to dinner his home the day the girls re ive their grades. Reversed psy- lology was used by Dr. Lucy Aus- tt. She took her four latin majors it to a steak dinner before their imps began. [May Day was a relaxing time for n g 1 i s h and psychology majors hile the remainder of the senior ass was joining in choruses of escue Me. On May 9 and 10, his- ry comps were given. The com- ■ehensives continued to be a dif- ^ult challenge. Even being the jdmother of Dr. Errol Clauss’ lughter didn’t help Tripp Tate. NSA Class Of 1971 To Supply Cornerstone Diversity Of Backgrounds The foreign language comprehen sives were given on May 9. The majority of them were take-out, open-book ■ tests with an oral sec tion. By the time the ecomonics- sociology majors were taking their comps on Wednesday, the book store was selling out of coffee. Your guess is as good as mine as to who was more panic-stricken— the seniors or Mr. Snavely. Art, biology and chemistry majors didn’t have comprehensives. But the six art majors didn’t completely miss out, they were able to choose between showing an exhibit or writ ing a thesis—lucky girls! Just ask Betty Wingo. She’s the only senior writing a thesis. Although met with apprehension, comprehensives have been a fair evaluation of four years of study and concentration. .As Roberta Frost expressed it, “comps were a chance for each girl to pull to gether four years of accumulated knowledge.” Summer To See WorkingFaculty Some of the Salem faculty plan diverse and interesting activities over the summer months. Remaining on campus to be on the staff of the Governor’s School will be Dean Clemens Sandresky, Dr. Michael Lewis, James L. Bray, Donald McLeod* and Mrs. Anna J. Cooper. Teaching in summer school sessions will be; Dr. Elizabeth Welch, Wake Forest; Mrs. Mary Melvjn, Wake Forest; and Mrs. Lu cille Scott, High Point College. Recipients of grants for graduate study are Miss Anne Woodward, Boston University; Miss Nancy Wurtele, University of Southern California; Edwin Shewmake, UNC- G; Paul Peterson, University of (Continued on Page 4) The structure of the National Stu dent Association could be radically altered in the course of the next three months, according to US- NSA’s President, Eugene Groves, in his speech to the delegates at the Carolinas-Virginia Regional held at Mary Washington College, May 5 and 6. As it stands now, NSA is a million business. It is primarily an association of student governments that is dependent on grants from private foundations and whatever money they can raise on the in dividual campuses. Yet, during the National Congress, to be held dur ing the last half of August at the University of Maryland, the very basic purpose and set-up of USNAS will probably be altered in one or two ways. Either it will be basen on students, rather than student gov ernments, or used as a co-ordinat ing agency for campus groups. The strongest effort possible will be made to finance NSA by the stu dents, for (as it now stands) NSA must be answering the demands of the group which supports them the most, the private foundations. By correcting this financial situation, NSA will be able to cater even more to the group who founded it and for whom it is designed—the students. Many of the purposes of NSA were also pointed out. President Johnson consulted Gene Groves be fore beginning w'ork on the draft laws to gain student opinion on a nationwide basis. NSA can func tion as an economic faction that can bring about pressure that will result in lower prices for students. An example of this is ETI, Educa tional Travel, Inc.; another one be ing developed is ACT, an effort to secure better, entertainment more cheaply for campuses. Book ex changes between campuses and a campaign to get publishers to lower their prices on textbooks is now being formulated. Opportunities for community services (such as tutor ial programs for the underprivil- edged) can be set up with NSA’s experience and aid. Regional officers for 1967-68 were also elected at the meeting in Fred- ricksburg. Jed Dietz from Carolina will serve as Chairman; Candy Burke from Mary Washington as International Affairs Vice Chair man; Matthew Goldbrick from Johnson C. Smith as National Af fairs Vice Chairman; Lyn Davis Salem as secretary; and Buck Gold stein from Carolina as treasurer.
