WINSTON-SALEM, N. C. NOVEMBER 25, 1922.
APPEARED AT SALEM
Ouija, ouija, tell me true
To waht is all this primping due ?
Vacation time is not at han’
The answer then must be—a man.
Ouija, Ouija say your fill.
Is it the boys from Chapel Hill?
On Monday night, the Mandolin
Club, the Glee Club, and the Orches
tra of U. N. C. gave a recital in
Memorial Hall. Their program was a
delightful medley that included pop
ular songs, Hawaiian music, jazz,
classical music and the Flappers
Opera. Though everyone enjoyed it
all, some preferred one type of music,
and some preferred another.
The last part of the program
seemed best. An especially beautiful
number was the Poel^ and Peasant
Overture by the orchestra. Svenrsen’s
Romahce, given as a violin solo by Mr.
Weike was played with true venie.
Will any girl ever forget how Mr.
Cordon sang “At Dawning” and
“Smilin’ Through” ? Saxaphone
Salad was a rollicking combination of
clownage and jazz.
The Flappers Opera was a mascu
line presentation of the fast fading
Flapper. The flappers, Dorothy, Mary
Jane, Lou, and Isabel were all gay
young things, but Isabel with her wild
shock of red hair was the most daring,
the most ultra-modem, yes, and the
fattest. Whether Isabel sang, talked,
or used the ouija board, she was the
center of attraction. The whole play
showed the triumphs of the flapper.
She program closed by the Club
singing the University song.

MUSIC CLUBS APPEAR
The American Guild of Oragnists
was organized on April 13, 1896, and
received its charter December 17 of
of the same year. According to the
constitution the object of the Guild is
“to raise the standard of efficiency of
organists by examinations in organ
playing, in the theory of music and in
generd musical knowledge, and to
grant certificates of Fellowship and
Associateship to members of the Guild
v/ho pass such examinations; to pro
vide members with opportunities for
meeting, for the discussion of pro
fessional topics, and to do such other
lawful things as are incidental to the
purposes of the Guild.” Up to this
time there had been no chapter of this
organization in North Carolina so
when the members assembled yester
day morning at 9:30 o’clock in the liv
ing room of the Alice Clewell building
one of the first items of business
transacted was the election of officers.
The officers elected are as follows:
Dean, Paul J. Weaver, University
of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; sub
dean, George Scott-Hunter, North
Carolina College for Women, Greens
boro; secretary. Miss Mary Frances
Cash, Winston-Salem; treasurer,
Charles G. Vardell, Jr., Flora Mc
Donald College, Red Springs; exec
utive committee, Dean H. A. Shirley,
Salem College, Winston-Saiem; J^'. W.
Kraft, Davenport College, Lenoir; \y^.
H. Jones, St. Mary’s School, Raleigh;
Mrs. C. H. Sebring, Mrs. J. J. Mock,
Mrs J. K. Pfohl, Miss Mabelle Beatey,
Mrs C. V. Craigen and Miss Mary V.
Jones of Winston-Salem; auditors,
Mr. Paul Lupo and Miss Ruth Duncan,
Winston-Salem; librarian and register,
W. P. Twaddell, Durham.
The foregoing officers were installed
at the afternoon session by Warden
Frank L. Sealey of New York.
The visiting members of the guild
were entertained at lunch in the col
lege dining room and in the afternoon
at five o’clock at tea by Mr. and Mrs.
Johnston at Reynolda. This was a
most delightful occasion and a feature
was the organ recital of Dean Shirley.
The session closed wit ha banquet at
the Robert E. Lee Hotel. The ban
quet was greatly enjoyed a large num

Salem girls have become mterested
in the Guild through toe three splen
did organ recitals which many of us
were privileged to attend. The first
recital was given at 10:30 by Prof.
Scott-Hunter of the North Carolma
College for Women. He played for us
Nozart’s Sonata in F, the celebrated
“cuckoo Sonata” and' 'a modem com
position by an American composer,
Ralph Baldwin. This Sonata m C
Minor was' especially pleasing to us
because it introduced that famous old
hymn of Martin Lutlier, Em Fete
Burg. The second recital was given
by Mr. W. H. Jones of Raleigh, who
played for us a group of Saine-Saens.
This program was folowed at four
o’clock by another, this time by Dean
C. G. Vardell, Jr., of Flora McDonald
College, who played his original
sonata which won the Shirley cup last
year. All of these recitals^ were
attended and greatly enjoyed. We
hope that the organists will again
choose Winston-Salem as a meeting
place some time in the near future.
DR. VANCE IN WEDNES. I HOUSE
Makes Strong Address at Wednesday
Morning Chapel Hour.
Dr. J. I. Vance, the speaker at the
Wednesday morning chapel service,
delivered a sermon that was charac
terized by its expression, dignity, and
power. The scripture lesson was
found in the third chapter of Revela
tion, the fourteenth through the eight
eenth verse, and the text was taken
from the same chapter: “And knowest
not that thou art wretched, and miser
able, and poor, and blind, and naked.”
Life is not made up of fancies and
feelings, but it is a stem reality, be
lieves Dr. Vance. In the scheme of
life, it is necessary to recognize the
facts of life, and above all to know
one’s self, for ‘it is not what we think
we are, but what we really are “that
counts. We are conscious always, but
there is life in every man beneath his
consciousness; there is there a part of
personality which is not his conscious
mind but his sub-conscious mind.
Our thoughts are usually conscious
thoughts, and these thought processes
are clear because they are linked and
associated, in some ways, with some
facts of the sub-conscious mind. This
mind is composed of “rooms of per-
-«onality”, and the size of one’s life is
determined there—the ' greatness de
pends upon what ideas are contained
in the “rooms”, and how these ideas
have been brought out.
The person who has a weak will has
failed to tap the reser/oir of power in
the sub-conscious mind. Absolutely
nothing is impossible in human life,
if only there is the desire and the will
power to bring the right ideas to the
foreground in the mind. The size of
one’s life depends on the ability to I
harness the instincts and sub-con- i
scious ideas, for “All things are pos
sible to him who believeth”, and a life
of courage and victory is waiting to bo
.summoned by will.
Influence is an unconscious as well
as a conscious proce.is, and We can not
help exerting some control, in some
way, over our fellowmen. Even
though we influence unconsciously, we
may detennine the character of the in
fluence, because we are responsible for
it whether it be god or bad, and be
cause it lives after we do, or after our
lives have changed. “The good men
do lives after them”, but it is also true
that the evil remains in the world,
too. How this enlarges the personal
responsibility of mankind!
Sometimes we are unconscious of
disease, but this same thing we know
not of, is what causes death or
tragedy* • All diseases are preventable,
and most are curable, say expert
scientists. ■ Like disease, sin also se
cures- a strong hold on man, and it
may be prevented if attacked in time,
or ■ -eured- by ■ an awakened ■ conscience.
Wc need a cure, not an opiate, so as a
remedy, it is necessary to remove sin.
Dr. Vance- concluded by saying that
an appetite is essential for right liv-
iing—both physical and spiritual. In
' developing this appetite we may follow
Ithe rules as laid out by the Great
I Physician in the Bible. For He stands
at the door and knocks, perhaps at
the sub-conscious door of our minds,
and we must wake up to this knock
ing. “He has come that we may have
On Ihursday evening at 9:45 the
second house meeting of the year was
held under the leadership of the
Juniors. After a few of the “pep
piest” song.s imaginable. Miss Stipe
announced that there were just twenty
four girls at Salem whom she would
like for sisters-in-law, and she read
the names of those who, since the be
ginning of the term, have kept their
rooms in “spick and span” condition.
At the next house-meeting these twen
ty-four girls are to be presented with
tiny certificates, the work of Miss
Rodgers and Mr. Higgins. Mrs.
Rondthaler then explained the plans
for the housewarming to be held on
the 28th and requested the girls to
have their rooms in “company” order
for the occasion. Miss Eleanor ShafT-
ner, president of the Junior class,
mentioned the big part that athletic.'i
is playing in the life of the college
girls this year and this was the be
ginning of numerous tributes by girls
from every class.
Two unseen girls, in the person of
Miss Lillian Watkins, were then in
troduced and the audience was enter
tained by an interesting domestic
wrangle in the home of the Newly
Dr. Rondthaler told, in his charac
teristic way, just what a fine body of
young women this year’s student body
really is and how they are helping to
create the “atmosphere” that belongs
“'1 he best house meeting yet”, a
student remarked later—anil it really
was, for Salem spirit abounded.
WALKING CLUB VISITS CITY
(Continued on page three)
I erhaps Mr. Higgins thought that
the Walking Club was getting a bit
hvzy, for the last few Saturdays we
have returned by 5:30, or perhaps the
invigoi'ating autumn air made him
long for a “regular hike.” At any
rate, last Saturday we came as near
taking a regular hike as it is possible
to do in two short hours. We started
out bravely over the hill on the back
campus a few minutes after four and
returned, a bit slower and more wear
ily, just at six by way of Salem hill,
having circled all around “Happy
Hill, Waughtown, and—only Mr. Hig
gins knows where else. Some even
ventured to say that they were “not a
bit tired, but the rest of us weaker
ones gazed at theni in admiration and
awe, for six miles in two hours seems
pretty strenuous to us.
Those who were here last year re
membered the Walking Club’s visit to
the aty water-works plant, so it was
with delight that we learned that we
wore going to visit the place again.
There we nad a very instructive bit of
U chemistry lesson, for Mr. Higgin.s
showed us how the v/ater that we
drink is filtered and treated with
chemicals to purify it of both dirt and
As we were passing through
Waughtown, a most interesting con
versation occurred between Mr. Hig
gins and a ragged and barefooted
“Hey! What sort of union you
got?” inquired the youngster.
