Hampton Quartet Sings
Harmony of Negro Quartet Is Per
fect and Pleasing
Every year Salem College has
the pleasure of having as its guests
the Hampton Quartet from Hamp
ton Institute, Hampton Rhodes, Va.
At the Y. W. C. A. Vesper services
Sunday in Memorial Hall they ap
peared and sang, as they usually do,
a group of old Negro spirituals
entirely without instrumental ac
companiment. Their harmony was
perfect, and the blending of their
voices remarkable. They sang such
old favorites as “Roll, Jordan, Roll,”
“Come Out de Wilderness,” “Just
Like John,” “What Kinda Shoes
You Gwine Wear,” and “I Wanta
Go to Heaven When I Die.”
Mr. Purviss, one of the adminis
trators of the Institute, told some
thing of the training of the singers,
and of the enormous amount of
money North Carolina is spending
on Negro education. More was spent
last year on Negro education alone
than was spent for both blacks and
whites together in 1920.
Dr. Rondthaler then made the
statement that all the singers except
one had been with us on previous
visits and the bass, Wainwright, had
traveled with the quartet for forty-
one continuous years.
The singers then closed their
program with “Swing Low, Sweet
Chariot,” and “Going Home.”
Mrs Roan Speaks
To History Club
The Orient Is Subject of Her Ad
dress Given Last Monday
At the meetinng of the History
Club oft Monday, April 15, Mrs.
Henry Roan of Winston-Salem, gave
a very entertaining and enlightening
talk on the Orient.
To her, one of the nicest things
about taking a trip to the Near East
or the Orient is that every one wants
to know about it. The Bible lands
are the property of the world, and
interest in them is universal; shared
by the aged and wise and the little
children who have heard the stories
of Betldehem and David.
Mrs. Roan landed at Bayroot oft
May 13, a city filled with historical
interest. She visited the well-
known Dog River which flows jujt
outside of Bayroot, along which
passed the conquerors of the East in
olden times. The road of today
runs far below the original road
which can only be reached by hard;
tiresome climbing. One’s efforts are
well rewarded, however, for there
exploits of the Babylonian and As
syrian conquerors are found,
history of past ages is engraved there
in the solid rock.
In her journeys, Mrs. Roan found
the Syrians to be wonderful guides,
and was impressed by the chains of
blue beads which the drivers had
fastened to the harnesses. She
never became quite accustomed to
having camels rising suddenly in the
distance, and the sight never tended
to be less fascinating.
Her reference to the city of Baal
bek, which is situated near Lebanon
and the Anti-Lebanon mountains,
was especially interesting. Here
stand the ruins of the temples of
Venus and Jupiter, which are
most extensive in the world. ]
said that Solomon began this
for his heathen wives. The magni
ficent columns of the temple
Bacchus are still standing. This
once used as a temple to the God
of the Sun.
Everything in the East, it se
is being excavated. Many buried
cities have been discovered, and
many truths concerning the land and
its customs have been brought to

Students’ Recital Given
In Music Hour
Varied and Delightful Program Is
The weekly appearance of the
students of the School of Music took
place on Thursday afternoon at

Vardell from getting both feet in
next Wednesday, Dr. Rondthalr may
rest assured that there will be a
similar performance at the same
hour next week.
In spite of the fact that every
body was scared “to death,” the
program was quite varied and enter
taining. One must confess that Sue

Miss Johnson is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Johnson, of
this city. She is - a pupil of Dean
Charles G. Vardell, whose excellent
training, combined with her unusual
talent, enabled her to present a pro
gram of rare artistic worth.
In her opening number “Intrata,”
by Bach, Miss Johnson displayed
poise and gave a clear-cut, well
balanced interpretation of this work
of the old master.
In the Beethoven Andante, Miss
Johnson, by means of her delicate
shading and perfect phrasing, al
tained a high degree of finish.
She entered thoroughly into th
mood of the Schumann “Whims,
making the most of this capricious
little piece W'ith its odd harmonies
and unusual rhythms.
In the first number of her sec
ond group, the brilliant “Rhap
sodie,” by Dohnanye, Miss Johnson’s
splendid technique was quite equal
to the exacting demands made upon
Her conception of “The Lark”
was eyqui.dte. She is endowed to a
marked degree with true poetic in
stinct which gives her an “Open
Sesame” to such compositions as the
lovely melody sang its way through
the labyrinth of intricate passages,
the listener was particularly impress
ed with the beautiful and varied
quality of her tone.
The scintillating effect which Miss
Johnson achieved in Mozkowski’s
“Etincelles,” was truly charming.
A beautiful close was the Cappric-
cio Brillante” of Mendelssohn,

Win Second Place
Saturday, April 13, the first pre
liminary contest for colleges spon
sored by the Carolina Dramatic As
sociation for this section of the state,
was held in Greensboro at the
Greensboro College for Women. The
plays were presented in Odell Hall,
and judges were selected by the
Greensboro club officials.
The three participants in this con
test were Greensboro College for
Women, Greensboro, N. C.; Salem
College, Winston-Salem, N. C.; and
Lenoir-Rhyne, Lenoir, N. C. The
plays presented were:
“Mansions,” by Hildegarde Plan
ner, Greensboro College for Women.
“Will O’ the Wisp,” by Doris
Holman, Salem College.
“Wurzel Flummery,” by A. A.
After much discussion, it was de
cided that Greensboro should be
awarded first place, Salem second,
and LenoirRhyne third.
As this was the Pierrette’s first
appearance in the annual state con
tests, the results proved to be very
gratifying, and great success should
follow them in their next year’s en-
Miss Joiner Speaks
at Expanded Chapel
Gives Interesting Demonstration Of
Results Obtained at N. C. School
For Deaf Mutes
Miss Enfield Joiner from the
North Carolina School for the Deaf
at Morganton was the speaker at the
Expanded Chapel service on Wed
nesday. She gave a demonstration
of the methods used in instructing
the mutes. Not only is Miss Joiner
at the head of the elementary de
partment at the State School but she
is recognized as a real authority on
speech training in the eastern half
of the United States.
For the purposes of demonstrat
ing, Miss Joiner had with her two
pupils from the State Institution,
Dorothy Celey of Raleigh, and Hel
en Black of Raleigh. Miss Joiner
explained how lip reading is taught
and then showed its results by ques
tioning Dorothy Celey, the younger
child, who has been in the school
only a little more than a year, and
who now has a vocabulary of at
least 500 words. Helen Black, who
has had training for nine years, ex
hibited great ability in lip reading.
Also she had excellent control of
her speech in view of the fact that
she is a deaf mute since birth. In
fact she showed such complete con
centration upon her work and so
thorougli a knowledge of current
happenings that she should put to
shame colkge women who have no
It was with surprise and yet with
pride that the students heard Miss
Joiner announce that one of the
Salem student body will be added to
the training class of teachers at
Morganton in September.
New Budget Plan
To Pay For Annual
Provides For More Equal Distribu
tion of Cost of Publication
At a meeting of the entire student
body recently a plan to increase the
budget so that it will include the
Annual bills was proposed, and ac
cepted by a unanimous vote. Ac
cording to this new system each
student will pay:
Freshmen and Busi
ness Students 7.50
The amounts as specified pay for
a copy of the Annual, for picture
sittings, and all bills for pictures re
gardless of liow many times they
appear in the book. The entire
amount may be paid at the beginning
of the year with a fifty cent deduc
tion ; or one may pay half of the
bill at the beginning of each semes
ter. As explained by the heads of
next year’s Annual staff, Eloise
Vaughn and Fritz Firey, and Mr.
Higgins, this plan will mean the
participation in the book of the
whole student body, and will equal
ize the burden of paying for the
Annual. Furthermore, the stafi will
know more nearly what sum it is
necessary to raise after each student
has paid her budget.
The following books have recently
been added to our collection:
Gissing, G. R.—A Victim of Cir-
Forester, C. S.—Victor Emmanuel
11 and the Union of Italy.
O’Shea, M. V.—The Child; His
Nature and His Needs.
DeVane, W. C.—Browning’s Par-
leyings; the Autobiography of a
Brooke, S. A.—Tennyson, His Art
And Relation to Modern Life.
Henderson, H. D.—Supply and

Gissing, G. R.^—The Private Pa
pers of Henry Ryecroft.

Hoyt, E. E.—The Consumption
