SENIORS TAKE VICTORY
In Champion Game Team of the Pur
ple and White Runner-Up—Rulfs,
Griffin, Shaffner and Chinnis for
Seniors, and Barnes, for Freshmen,
Star in Final Game.
In the Thanksgiving series of
games, which were marked for their
pep and hard playing from the first to
the last, the Seniors were proven to be
the champions of the college.
The first half of the game between
the Seniors and Juniors was called
promptly at two-thirty. For a while
the ball was tossed back and forth,
with no results, and interest in the
sidelines ran high. Finally the Red
and White scored a goal; a double
foul was called soon after, and Griffin
brought the score of the Black and
Gold to one point. After this the
Seniors rallied, and the ball for the
most part, was played at their end of
the court. The good work of ShafY-
ner. Senior side-center, and Warren
and Chinnis, guards, made it almost
impossible for the ball to reach the
Junior goal, while Rulfs and Griffin
made score after score. The Red and
White, with a free throw, raised their
score one more point, and when time
was called the score stood 13-3, favor
of the Seniors.
The first half of the Sophomore-
Freshman game was called imme
diately. At the vei-y outset a free
throw was won by Barnes, Freshman
forward, followed by one score by
Armfield, of the Sophomores. This
was followed by another goal by Arm
field, and although the Freshmen were
conceded the strongest team, things
looked promising for the Ited and
Black. At this point the Purple and
White recovered, and the score rose
rapidly in their favor. The feat’iies
of this half was the playing of Abel
and Armfield for the Red and Black,
and of Bames, Graeber, and Jones for
the Purple and White. When time
was call^ the score was 10-3, favor of
Second Half Senior-Junior
At the conclusion of this half the
second half or the Seniors and Juniors
was called. The Juniors took the first
tip off, but the Senior center recovered
the ball, passed it up, and a goal was
scored by Rulfs. Again, backed by
the good work of the Senior centers
and forwards, the ball was kept at the
Senior goal, and the Senior score was
rapidly raised by Rulfs and Griffin.
At this point Shaffner, E., by a free
throw gained a point for the Red and
White. The ball was again tossed
from Senior to Senior and four
goals were made by Griffin and Rulfs
respectively, raising the Senior score
eight more points. One more free
throw was made by Turlington, Red
and White, and the score stood 27-5,
favor of the Black and Gold.
Second Half Sophomore-Freshman
The Sophs made the first tip-off, but
Bames scored for the Freshmen by a
tree throw, followed by a goal. The
Sophomores rallied at this point and
attempted to batter down the of the
Freshmen. TTirough the co-operation
of the entire team and the feature
work of Armfield, Abel and Womble,
their score rose rapidly. For a while

A GALA OCCASION
Thanksgiving evening at 6 o’clock a
delightful banquet was held in the
college dining hall. The decorations
were carried out in yellow and white,
Salem College colors. Long streams of
yellow and white extended from the
ceiling in the center of the room to all
comers and sides of the room. The
team tables were arranged in the
middle of the room—one long table al
most the entire length of the room for
the four basket ball teams and two
tables across and adjacent to the
middle of the basket ball table on
either side, for the two volley ball
teams. The place cards for the mem
bers of the teams were booklets re
sembling basket and volley balls, which
contained pictures of the teams. The
place cards for the other guests were
pumpkins, very suggestive of Thanks
The guests assembled in the dinmg
hall at the ringing of the bell. At
6:15 the six teams made their
triumphal entry. Before taking their
seats they sang the team song, “Ball
Days.” Miss Josephine Shaffner, mis-
tres of ceremonies, called upon Mr.
Heath to ask the blessing.
A ten-piece orchestra, conducted by
Laura Howell, rendered charming
music during the banquet.
After the first course, “When We
Meet Together” was sung by every
body, led by Eloise Chesson, college
Miss Josephine Shaffner, head of
basket-ball introduced Dr. Rondthaler
with the following w'ords:
“I am just so glad that there were
so many people interested in the
games; and I would like to say that
there was better spirit than ever be
fore. I hope, however, that you
weren’t so interested in the playing
that you didn’t notice the time-keeper.
He has been keeping time at Salem
ever since 1 can remember and that
has been a long time. I know he will
tell you how much he enjoys blowing
the whistle at the cnicial moment.”
Dr. Rondthaler said that he was
sure that Miss Shaffner had him mix
ed up with the town clock. He present
ed the cup which has been won for the
fourth and last time. It is interesting
to note that the cup was first won by
the same team that won it last. The
other two times it was won by the
class of ’22. Members of the former
winning teams were present at the
banquet. The new Welfare cup was
presented to Miss Mabel Chinnis, cap
tain of the Senior team, who respond
ed for her team.
Next Dr. Rondthaler read the fol
lowing interesting telegrams from
alumnae and former faculty:
“Best wishes to Salem g'“S. Con
gratulations to the teams.”
Helena Keys, Ex-Physical Dir.
“Across the many miles that separ
ate me from my beloved Alma Mater
I send a heart full of love and good
wishes for her continued success.
Laud the winners. Cheer the losers,
and special greetings for the Red and
Nancy Hankins, 20.
“I join the host of Salemites who
wish continued success and service of
the best school and the finest folks I
know. My heart is with you today
and I’d adore being there in person.
Marie Edgerton, ’21.
“Why is Texas so far away from
the good Old North State? But dis
tance makes no difference. I am
thinking of you. Wish I were there to
get in on a little of that Thanksgiving
pep so characteristic of Salem. Best
luck to everj'body, especially our little
sisters. Purple and White.”
Nina Sue Gill, ’22.
“The attractions on Broadway are
not so alluring as to make me forget
Salem and this eventful day. I am
wishing her all the success in the

Elgie Nance, Ex-’24.
Miss Shaffner next called on Mabel
Chinnis, captain of the Senior team.
Miss Chinnis said that she was
proud of the spirit shown throughout
the games. She said that three years
ago when her team were Freshmen
they won the cup. They became con
ceited over this and lost it for the
next two years. Now they are no
longer conceited and are mighty glad
to be the winners again.
The Senior class sang to Dr. Rond
thaler, the team and to their class.
Miss Eleanor Shaffner, captain of
the Junior team, was next introduced.
She responded in appropriate words,
after which her class sang to Miss
Stipe, their team, and their sister
Mary Womble, captain of the
Sophomore team, was next intro
duced. She spoke for her team, after
which the Sophomore class sang to
Bishop Rondthaler, to their sister
class, their team and their class.
Elsie Barnes, captain of the Fresh
man, was next called upon. She re
sponded. The Freshman sang their
class song to Miss Stipe, their sister
class, their team and to their class
teacher. Miss Rodgers.
Pud Griffin, president of the Athle
tic Association, spoke. She said that
she hoped the fine spirit and en
thusiasm shown in volley ball and
basket ball would be carried out later
on in hockey, base ball and track.
Alice Rulfs, head of volley ball, said
that she was glad that so many more
had come out for volley ball this year
and that volley ball would hereafter be
a permanent feature at Salem.
Miss Shaffner introduced the next
speaker in the following w’or^:
“It is not beneath our dignity to
hear from Mr. Heath.”
Mr. Heath stated that he had sev
eral telegrams which had escaped Dr.
Rondthaler’s notice and which he
would like to read.
“As a widower must decline kind in
vitation to commencement. If, how
ever, Charlie Higgins holds out for
three more years I will consider your
Cameron Morrison, Governor.

THE VOLLEY BALL GAME
Both Sides Fight Hard and Games
Stand Two to One.
The games played last Saturday af
ternoon, November 25, between the
Sister Class Volley Ball teams afforded
much excitement to the on-lookers. A
large number of rooters filled the side
Inies, and cheer after cheer was given
as the games progressed. It would
have been hai'd to decide who was
more enthusiastic and full of pep—the
players or the spectators.
The game was a very closely fought
one, and filled the side linen with terror
one moment and with joy the next.
The first game went to the Senior-
Sophomore team with a score of 21.
The second was 21 in favor of the
Junior-Freshman team thus giving one
game to each team. The final and de
cisive game was one of nerve-racking
torture while each score mounted
steadily. After hard playing by both
sides, the score reached 21—in favor
of the Junior-Freshman team, thus
giving it the victory.
The line up was as follows:
ary, Captain, Sallie Tomlinson, Rosa
James, Rachel Jordan, Edith Hanes,
Ruth Reeves, Julia Hairston, Katie
Holshouser, Margaret Whitaker, Raye
Junior-Freshmen — Ruth Brown,
Captain, Lois Neal, Mary Alta Rob
bins, Estelle Hooks, Amelia Galloway,

MRS. VANNESS ADDRESSES THE
Women in Politics Subject of Talk.
Wednesday evening at 8 o’clock the
History Club was addressed, on the
occasion of its first meeting by Mrs.
F. W. Vanness, a member of the New
Jersey state legislature
Delightful informality characterized
the meeting. The members of the
Club were seated in groups in the sit
ting room of the Alice Clewell Build
ing. The meeting was opened by Miss
Alice Lyerly, president of the Club.
Miss Lyerly called upon Mr. Heath to
introduce the speaker.
Mrs. Vanness very interestingly and
clearly spoke on Woman’s Place in
Politics. She said that when people
ask her how she became the successful
politician she invariably answers that
she ha been married for twenty years
and lias, therefore, had twenty years
of training. This gave her executive
administrative and legislative experi
ence in her family, therefore she was
prepared for these three requirements.
Another excuse given by women for
not entering politics is that they are
not entering politics is that they are
too much interested in their homes.
Mrs. Vanness s^d that the reason she
entered politics is because she is inter
ested in her home. Everything con
nected with the home is dominated by
politics. Improper conditions which
affect the home can be remedied only
through politics, therefore women who
are interested in their homes should
also be interested in politics.
Mrs. Vanness says ttiat women must
work through party organization to
get w'hat they want. They must
choose their party and then work
The speaker gave opportunity for
the girls to ask any questions which
they wanted answered.
