MISS MASON, HEAD OF DEPART
MENT OF EDUCATION,
We all regret the fact that Miss
Newel Mason, the head of the Depart
ment of Education, owing to il
health, was forced to resign, on Jan
uary 5th, the day following the re
opening of school after the holidays.
The question of filling this vacancy
seemed at best a perplexing one, in
view of the fact that examinations
are so near at hand. Hbwc*ver, it
proved to be shoi-t-lived, as various
other members of the faculty, namely,
Miss Farrar, Miss DeBarritt, Miss
Leftwich and Miss Rogers have so
generously volunteered their services
until a new head for the department
may be secured.

Almost the whole number of stu
dents and faculty were gathered in
Memorial Hall on Thursday morning,
January 5, 1922, for the first chapel
service of the New Year.
For the second and last time this
school year, the Seniors marched to
the processional, “Standing at the
Portal.” Miss Farrar, the registrar,
announced the resignation of the head
of the Department of Education, Miss
Mason and read a list of the instruc
tors who would carry on her classes
until the second semester.
Dr. Rondthaler welcomed the stu
dents, wished them a happy New
Year, and commended their prompt
ness in returning after the holidays.
After a few moments of worship the
company sang as a recessional, “On
ward, Christian Soldiers.”
CHANGE IN ADMINISTRATION.
Salem did not quite seem familiar
when we returned after the Christ
mas vacation. Miss Smith was gone
from ^e academy and Mrs. Herodob.
from the office. Mrs. Herndon is now
housemother in the academy; a posi*
tion filled by Miss Smith so faithfully
for four years. The academy will-
have a matron who has a mother’s un
derstanding and sympathy, ■ Mrs. •
Best has come to take charge' of the'
office and we welcome her into the'
MRS. RONDTHALER HOSTESS.
Last Monday at the noon hour Mrs.
Rondthaler delightfully entertained
the members of the student council
with a course luncheon. The guests
were greeted by Dr. and Mrs. Rond
thaler and ushered immediately into
the dining room. Here luncheon was
served consisting of delicious fruit
salad, hot buttered rolls, crackers,
olives, salted peanuts, cake with
whipped cream, candy, crystalized
fruit and ginger ale. Informal con
versation prevailed during the serving
of luncheon and continued far into the
afternoon. 'The hospitality of so
agreeable a host and so charming a
hostess was fully enjoyed by all.
Miss Claudia Winkler, a former La
tin teacher in the Academy, has re
turned to Winston-Salem after spend

. On January 5th the five g^reatest
naval powers in the world decreed
tinong themselves to abolish subma
rine warfare against merchant ships.
They asked the world to • subscribe to'
the decree as a principle of intemar.
aional law. The resolution proposed
by Elihu Root, amended by Arthur J.
Balfour, and adopted by the naval
committee of the disarmament confer
ence immediataely to take effect be
tween the five signatory powers, runs
“The signatory powers recognize
the practical impossibility of using
submarines as commerce destroyers
without violating, as they were vio
lated in 1914-1918, the requirements
i universally accepted by civilized na-
! tions for the protection of the lives of '
neutrals and non-combatants; and to
jthe end that the prohibition of the use
I of submarines as commerce destroy
ers shall be universally accepted as a
part of the law of nations; they now
accept that prohibition as henceforth
binding as between themselves and in
vite all other nations to adhere there'
This action of the committee is final
as far as the five powers ase concern
ed. Formal ratification to the anti
submarine pact will be given by the •
conference when the treaty in which
it will be incorporated comes up in
