Motto: “SAIL ON, SALEM”
Volume IV Winston-Salem, N. C., September 12, 1923 Number 1
PRESIDENT OF Y. W. C. A. WEL
COMES ALL NEW-COMERS
“Tall girsl, short girls, fat girls, thin,
Our Freshman Class takes them all in”
And that’s about the finest thing
which could be, Class of ’27. A class
made up of people who looked just ex
actly alike would be just about as bad
as a class of girls who thought alike,
talked alike, and acted alike, and you
know yourselves that nothing could be
worse. There wouldn’t be any variety
or any personality in a group like that,
and without those two characteristics
life is a rather monotonous thing,
So, all you new girls, we are just
mighty glad to say, “How do you do?”
All summer long we old girls have
been thinking of you and wandering
what you would be like, and here you
are at last. We are certainly happy
that every one of you has chosen
Salem as her Alma Mater, and we’re
sure you’re going to love it here, as
every true Salemite does. Honestly,
isn’t it just the friendliest, happiest
place you know?
Just one more word: All your lives
long you’ve been storing up ideas and
building air castles and dreaming
dreams, now haven’t you? That isn’t
just some secret of your very own
which I have stumbled upon; because,
you see, I was a Freshman among
Freshmen once myself, and I know
that in spite of the old tradition about
the Freshmen being so green they
have new ideas, new means of ex
pression, and endless ways of giving
life to the activities of the campus.
And that’s just what we are looking
for and what we need. We hope that
you packed all your very choicest ideas
and dreames along with your other
treasures in your new wardrobe trunk
when you came to Salem, and that
you’ve already unpacked those ideas
and have them ready for use. Your
class, the Y. W. C. A., the Student
Council, the Athletic Asosciation, the
Salemite—every organization on the
campus needs you, and we’re so glad
that at last you’re here to help us and
work with us.
Give to your school the best that
you have, and the best will come back
to you! And, while you’re giving,
may your class have in return a happy
four years at Salem.
The Book Store will be open every
day from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Money for all C.O.D. packages must
be left in the outer office before the
package is due to arrive. Otherwise
it will be returned and in the case of
parcel post packages notice will be
served the sender that it was not re-

I greet you, Salem Students,

and as far as I am concerned,
you are very welcome.
I hope you will like Salem
to stay until you have acquired
a cap and gown
and a diploma
with A.B., or B.S., or B.M.,
I am sure there are
a number of things that will
bewilder you who are
new to Salem. If so,
come to ME.
