NEW COUNCIL BEGIN DUTIES
The Student Council Installation
which took place Monday evening in
Memorial Hall was one of the most
unusual and impressive services ever
held. Both the President of the Col
lege and the Dean of Women, wearing
the cap and gown, were on the plat
form with the old student council, the
seniors, members of which also wore
cape and gowns. After Miss Zachary,
the retiring president had expressed
to the student body her appreciation
of her trip to the National Student
Government Conference, the new
president, Miss Russell, came forward
and received the purple gown. Then
each officer was separately installed,
after which the representatives came
forward and were installed by classes.
Dr. Rondthaler, Miss Stipe and Mrs.
Rondthaler all expressed their pleasure
in the success of the past year and
their sincere hope that the year 1923-
’24 would be an equally successful one.
The service ended by the singing of
the Alma Mater.

Council is as follows:
1st Vice-Pres.—Estelle Hooks.
2nd V. P.—Lois Neal.
Senior Representatives — Lillian
Watkins, Marjorie Hunt, Mary How
ard Turlington, Jennings Ross, Louise
Junior Representatives—Lois Crow

Y. W. C. A. INSTALLATION HELD
Sunday afternoon in the library one
jof the most impressive vesper services
of the year was held, in which the offi
cers and cabinet for 1922-23 resigned
their duties in favor of the officers and
cabinet for 1923-24. Singing the stir
ring processional, “Stand Up, Stand
Up for Jesus” the old and new cabinet,
side by side, marched to their places
in the front of the dimly lighted room.
The beautiful candle service was used,
each old cabinet member carrying in
her hand a lighted candle which she
placed on the table as she passed.
After a hymn was sung, the out-going
president, Eliza Moore, reviewed the
work of the past year in a few well-
chosen words. Then speaking to her
successor, Lillian Watkins, she gave
her a lighted candle with the words,
“As we have received the gift even so
do we minister the same one to an
other.” Following her each member
of the old cabinet handed her candle to
the girl taking her place. The incom
ing president then gave her promise to
perform to the best of her ability the
duties and responsibilities imposed
upon her. After a short prayer the
service closed with the recessional,
“Oh, Jesus, I have promised.” The
earnestness with which the -incoming
cabinet assumed its responsibilities
promises that there are great things
in store for our Salem Y. W. C. A. for
JUNIOR ORCHESTRA TO MAKE
Will Appear in Memorial Hall.
The Junior Orchestra, which was or
ganized last fall, will make its first
public appearance in Memorial Hall on
the evening of Monday, May the 7th,
at 8 o’clock. This orchestra is made
up of nineteen instruments, including
first and second violins, cornets, cello,
drums and piano. The majority of the
members are pupils of Mrs. Andrews,
their efficient director. None of them
are over sixteen years of age, and
little Esther Miller, who will play a
violin solo, is only seven. This most
interesting orchestra is the only one of
its kind in this district, and Mrs. An
drews is to be congratulated on her
achievement. This Junior Orchestra
is a training school for the Salem
College Orchestra, and it will mean
much in improvement and efficiency
for this organization in the years to
come- The skill with which these
young musicians manage their instru
ments, and the accuracy of their per
formance is surprising.
Mrs. Andrews, the director, is an
English woman and received her train
ing at the London Conservatory, and
is now holding the position of instruc
tor at Salem College. Her work with
this new and promising organization
has been highly successful.
The varied and interesting program
bespeaks the ability of the orchestra,
and promises a most delightful even
ing to those who attend the concert.

Rev. Mr. Newell Speaks
At the regular mid-week chapel
service on Wednesday, May 2, Rev.
Mr. Newell spoke to the students
on the Biblical verse, reading: “The
harvest truly is plenteous but the
laborers are few.” His address was
to the effect that the members of to
day’s generation, with their many ad
vantages in health, education, and re
ligion, owe the world something for
the opportunities it has given them.
“The State of North Carolina”, he
said, “has changed remarkably since
the days when 1 was a boy. You con
sider yourselves poor because you
can’t have everything you want. We
were too poor to want anything.”
And Mr. Newell gave various in
stances which occurred in his boyhood,
all illustrative of the very marked ad
vances made from generation to gen
eration. “There is nothing in all the
world”, he added, “That can accom
plish what prayer can for the young
woman who is beginning her life
work. Pray until you are sure
whether God wants you to preach and
teach at home or abroad. There is a
life of service ahead of you when you
leave with your sheepskin. You will
be leaders and there is no leader so
efficient as a well trained, prayerful
