INCREASING iNTEREST IN ATHLETICS EVIDENCED
PROMISING OUTLOOK FOR 100% PARTICIPATION
Interesting Chart Arranged by Mr.
Higgins Shows Class and Student
Body Percentage—Two New Games
,_Jhe girl who wishes to get the most
out of college life, and to put the most
into it, must participate in the outdoor
sports. That majority of the student
body who are now actively interested
in athletics know this beyond all
doubt, and the remaining per cent ai‘e
rapidly being converted.
A most interesting chart, arranged
by Mr. Higgins, was presented and ex
plained by Miss Jackson, coach, to the
student body, and has been placed near
the post office in Main Hall. On this
chart are arranged six thermometers,
which register the active interest of
the day students, each class, and the
boarding students, respectively. As
the number of participants from each
group increases, the thermometer will
register a higher percentage. This
visible evidence of the increasing in
terest in athletics will be most grati
fying and inspiring. In order to be
considered actively interested, a girl
must participate in a sport on five
At present the standing of the group
is as :^ollows:
Day students, 19%; Freshman class
47%; Sophomore class 43%; Junior
class 63%; Senior class 70%; Student
A friendly rivalry between the
classes is sure to result from this
publicity, which will, in turn, raise the
student body percentage.
The basket and volley ball season
being over, hockey is now engaging
the attention of the students. It is
quite evident that four class teams
will be out this year, and that the
players will reach a higher proficieii';y
ill the sport than ever before. The
freshmen are showing imprecendented
enthusiasm, and arc putting out a
promising group of players. Never be
fore has such a large number ,of sen
iors entered the lists as athletes.
Two new games are to be introd;:,--
ed on the campus this winter—tether
tennis and a golf meter, which will
register the length of the drive, and
whether the ball goes straight, or is
sliced, or topped.
No matter of what typo of tempera
ment, every student may now find
some sport in which she may become
proficient, and Salem sentiment will
see that she does.

FRIDAY NIGHT Y. W. C. A.
“Budget Your Time”
“Budget Your Time” was the inter
esting subject considered last Friday
night at the regular meeting of the
Y. W. C. A. The'service opened by
the singing of two hymns, followed by
the Scripture reading by the vice-
president, and a prayer offered by
Bliss Stipe. The choir then very
beautifully sang an anthem, after
which Dr.' Kondthaler,' the speaker,
was introduced. His talk was most in
teresting, telling of the value received
from budgeting one’s time. Relating
personal experiences and incentives
concerning such a moven]^nt, he
stated his desire for such a- plan to be
adopted in the college classes. ■ This
nlan, he shov/ea, would be amusing
and also a way of accomplishing the
most that ifj possible.
Alter this talk, Miss Moore 1-«1 a
discussion, with those present, as to
the adoption of such a “Salem plan”.
It was decided that the matter should
bs taken up in individual class meet
ings and then adopted.
After singing another hymn Uie
meeting was closed by the repetition
of the, Y. W. C. A. motto.
Come let us journey back in time’s
flight to the quiet of Olde Salem
town. And with time for leisure and
loitering let us visit those spots which
have been made famous by events of
the passing year.
There stands on South Main street,
just a block from the Square, the
building which was known as the
Salem Tavern. The present building
was erected by the church in 1784 on
the site of a former tavern which had
been burned earlier in the same year.
The material had been secured foi* a
Sister’s House, and we can imagine
how anxious the Sisters of the Con
gregation have been for the erection
of their new home. When the tavern
v/as burned the church authorities
conferred and decided that since^ the
tavern was of more importance th:in
the Sisters’ House, the material pre
pared should be used for a new
tavern and the Sisters would have to
wait. Poor ladies, what could they do
against such a decision? The tavern
was built and the Sisters waited two
On May 31, 1791, President George
Washington was entertained in this
same tavern. During his visit Ex-
Govemor Burke and Governor Josiah
Martin came to call on him. A sup
per was prepared for him in a littl^
log house which, having been weather
boarded, still stands just across the
street from the old hotel, and eight
specially chosen townsmen were in
vited to meet with President Wash
ington ai-ound that supper table. Dur
ing his visit he was shown over the
itown and was especially interested in
the industries of the Brother’s House
and the town water works. A copy
of the speech he delivered, written in
his own, hand, is now on file iii the

ager was a man named Bagge, who
knew that the church lands, granted
by England, would be in danger if the
people were too openly hostile to the
British. One day an English courier

MOTION PICTURE EQUIPMENT
TO BE INSTALLED AT SALEM
native of France
Final arrangements have been made
for the installation of a modem mov
ing picture equipment at Salem col
lege ind, the machine and screen arriv
ed several'days ago.
In the spring of 1922 the Mac-
Dowell Club of Salem College voted to
purchase a motion picture projector
and screen and to present them to the
college. At the opening of the col
lege in the fall, the officers of the club
began the arrangements for the pur
chase of the ecjuipment. It was finally
decided to install a standard motion
picture projector and a nine by twelve
foot screen as permanent equipment
lor Memorial Hall. The Machine se
lected is a “Power.s 6B Projector”
with Mazda equipment, thus guaran
teeing the best possible projection and
an equipment of the liighest quality.
The MacDowell Club is to present a
series of entertainments which are to
inclade the best of pictures together
with excellent musical programs. The
entertainments are to be varied and
many of the better releases and educa
tional pictures are to be shown. The
musical programs will be exceptionally
attractive. All pictures are to be pre
viewed by a committee before being .
presentd at the entertainments. The
entertainments are open to all stud
ents and faculty of both academy and
The machine is not only to be avail
able for the above entertainments but
is to be used to show pictures as il-
lustratives material for the various,
courses of the college.
The MacDowell Club was founded in
1919 and is named in memory of the
late. Edward MacDowell. The Club
hits a membership of more tlxan 200.
