ness Meeting—Vice-Presidents, Sec
retary, Treasurer, and Class Repre
sentatives Chosen by Student Body.
On Monday afternoon at the general
March business meeting of the Student
Self-Goverment Association the offi
cers for the year 1923-24 were elected
by popular vote. After the minutes
were read by the secretary, and the
financial report was made by the
treasurer. Miss Zachary announced
that nominations for the new president
were in order. As is the custom, those
candidates already nominated by the
council were again nominated from the
floor, and Watkins and Russell were
chosen. A vote was taken, the result
of which was that Russell was elected
president for next year. Nominations
were then made for first vice-presi
dent, second vice-president, secretary,
and treasurer, respectively, and the
ballots were counted with the follow
First Vice-President—Estelle Hooks,
Second Vice-President—Lois Neal,
Secretary—Mary Hill, ’25.
Treasurer—Katherine Lotspeich, ’25.
Nominations were then made by the
classes for their representatives, and
a student body vote was taken with
the following results;
Representatives of incoming senior
class: Mary Howard Turlington, Mar
jorie Hunt, Jennings Ross, Louise
Representatives of incoming Junior
class: Lois Crowell, Blanch Yorke,
Representatives of incoming Sopho
more class: Ella Brodie Jones, Evelyn
With such a corps of officers the
association may be confident of a suc
cessful year 1923-24. Miss Russell is
well-fitted for her position of responsi
bility. During her college career she
has held offices in all branches of
student activity, and has won the trust
and esteem of all her fellow students.
In the vice-presidents, secretary and
treasurer she has very capable sup
porters, and the class representatives
have been most wisely chosen.

R. S. COUNCIL MEETS TO DIS
Review of Last Days of Jesus
In the third of the series of Lenten
services Bishop Rondthaler continued
his inspiring talks on the last words
of Christ before his crucifixion. He
told of the early morning appearance
before Pilate, the numerous accusa-
|tions of his enemies, and the wise
: silence Jesus maintained through it
jail. The next scene was in Herod’s
I palace where, by his taunting, scorn-
jful words, the wicked king insulted
I the majesty of God. Then, even more
I trying than this humiliation, was his
I appearance before the Roman Legion
jby whom he was subjected to even
I greater mockery and cruelty. Through
I all this and his later interview with
Pilate, liis bearing was calm and dig-
Inified and not one word did he answer
; to the taunts of his persecutors.
I “'Ihere are times”, said Bishop
' Rondthaler, “when patient silence
such as Jesus maintained is the best
I policy.” And he gave various instances
|0f the hard feeling too hasty words
have often caused. “Speech”, he
■ ended, “may have a silver tone, but
silence is golden”.
DELIGHTFUL PARTY IS GIVEN
Wednesday afternoon, March 7th,
will long be remembered by every
senior who attended the lovely party
given to them by Mrs. C. S. Siewers
at her home on Cascade avenue. The
lower floor of the house offered a
pretty background for the gaieties
with its decorations of jonquils and
buttercups. Several games along with
dancing were enjoyed during the after
noon. As the hour grew late Misses
Marjorie, Margaret, and Mary Louise
Siewers served the guests with deli
cious salad and ice courses. The
Easter note was emphasized in little
“bunny rabbits”, which were passed
as favors with the ice course.
Assisting Mrs. Siewers in receiving
and entertaining were Mrs. J. K.
Pfohl, Mrs. W. L. Siewers, and Mrs.
C. F. Shaffner.
“Keep the Kampus Klean” Campaign
On Tuesday night a meeting of the
I. R. S. council was called for the
purpose of discussing questions of im
mediate interest pertaining to the stu
dent body. After a few introductory
remarks by Dean Stipe, a general dis
cussion was held by the class repre
sentatives. It was finally decided that
the most important problem at this
time is that of keeping the campus
free from trash and refuse. The diair-
man of the Safety Leag^ue, who is at
the same time Fire Chief, was called
in, and a plan was laid for the co
operation of her department in this

WALKING CLUB GOES ON
I LIGHTFUL HIKE
Last Saturday afternoon was an
ideal one for a hike, and the Walking
Club was very happy to have as its
guide Dean Shirley, who had not been
with the girls for several months.
After passing through the cemetery,
the members found themselves in the
“train yards” just below the Round
house. It was indeed amusing to
watch several dozen girls, in single
file, hop gaily over cables, tracks and
Soon the site of the new station—
which the present day “Salem Girls”
hope will be erected before their last
trip to and from is taken—^was
reached. Just at present, however,
one has to resort to her imagination
to picture a handsome edifice standing
in the gulley which has been selected
for the building.
The course led still farther. Not
far behind the City Memorial Hospital
the girls stopped. The guide pointed
out the new East Winston grammar
school, which is now under the process
of construction. It lies in a valley
