New Staff
Welcome Y. W, Y. M.
Conference Delegates
To say that the boys and girls of
other schools are most heartily wel
come to Salem would, strictly speak
ing, l)e a trite way of greeting tlieni.
Yet. could anyone suggest a better
way of expressing the feelings of
the student liody toward its guests?
Be more specific, perhaps ? Ver_v
well, eacli and every girl on this
campus, be she an ardent “Y”
worker or a member of the associa
tion at large feels herself person
ally responsible for the well-being
and comfort of the conference dele
gates. Salem doesn’t want her
guests to feel that they are company
and must at all time adhere to their
company manners. She much pre
fers that they enter into the daily
routine, try to procure a little of the
famous Salem spirit. In other
words, she wants them to be home-
folks. She is proud of the honor
of having them visit her, is glad
that her Y.W.C.A. organization was
so successful as to secure their prom
ise to come, and is glad to help in
whatever small way she can, to
make them feel at home.
Salem campus is a small place
compared to many others in the
state, but it is filled with peculiar
little corners and walks, w'hich are
quite an addition to a stranger be
coming lost. It happens, however,
that most of the loveliest features
and most delightful surprises lie
obscure corners, so the guests mi
not hesitate to explore when and
where they see fit or have the desire.
Should anyone, by chance, get lost,
she or he will probably find a Salem
student somewhere in the back
ground whom it will be perfectly
safe to follow. If all the students
should be indoors attending class
studying (as they usually are), the
lost one may remember, that all
roads lead to the dining room,
he will only retrace his steps until
he reaches the large hall, filled with
tables (of course he will have no
trouble finding it) he will feel per
fectly at ease once more to go in
search of other places of beauty.
Welcome to Salem campus. Con
ference delegates, may your stay
here be one of pleasure ! Welcome !

Appropriate Program
In Vesper Hour
Particularly appropriate to this
lovely spring season was “A Study
of the Beauties of Nature,” the sub
ject of the Y. W. Vesper program
Sunday night. Had the weather been
favorable the service would have
taken place on back campus,
spite of the fact that such an
rangement was impossible all those
present agreed that the program was
lovely. The hymns sung at the be
ginning of the service were “Fair
est Lord Jesus,” and “Day Is Dy
ing in the West.” Mary Norris read
the twenty-third psalm, followed by
William Cullen Bryant’s poem, “A
Forest Hymn,” read by Adelaide
Winston. The service closed with
the singing of the Y Association
hymn, “Follow the Gleam.”

Salemite Returns
From Long Cruise
The old boat Salemite is not what
she used to be. She has been
wrecked and tossed about to such a
degree that her very survival, no
matter what her condition, is truly
remarkable. Wearily the weather
beaten, flea-bitten old sea-dogs that
have manned her hobble down the
gang plank, now that Skipper “Dot”
Ragan has once again dropped an
chor in the old home port. After a
strange cruise devoted to divers pur
suits, such as pirateering, harpoon
ing, exploring, fishing, pearl-diving,
snake-shooting, and tjreasurerhunt-
ing the crew have just about ex
hausted their force.
In fact, for the last two or three
weeks knowing they were homeward
bound they have harkened to the
call of the Shad and have succumbed
to the caress of the warm sou’-
westers and lolling in the tropic sun,
have idly east their nets into the
sparkling waters, and drawn in many
glistening, flapping blue and silver
and green fish. Down in the close
hot boiler room the involuntary
stokers have heaved just enough fuel
to keep the ship in gentle motion for
the few remaining leagues. During
the last week of the cruise the first
mate napped at the helm, the quar
termaster snoozed in a hammock, the
deck-hands shot crap in the fo’eas-
tle. And—her white sails full with
the kindly zephyrs—the Salemite
now drifts lazily into dock.

on deck with their tar-bags slung

Miss Andrews Gives
Brillianf Recital
Is Assisted in Beautiful Program By
Miss Lillyan Newell
The third in a series of graduating
recitals to be presented by thf
School of Music of Salem College
took place last night in Memorial
Hall when Miss Elizabeth Andrews,
of Greenville, N. C., appeared as
pianist in a program of marked in
terest and variety.
Miss Andrews is a pupil of Dean
Charles G. Vardell, Jr., whose
splendid training and influence
reflected in the fine musicianship of
this talented young pianist through
out the evening. The opening num
ber, Bach’s Prelude in B flat from
the “Well Tempered Clavichord,”
was played with an intelligent un
derstanding of this particular style
of composition. To the Mozart
Fantasia in C minor, which followed.
Miss Andrews gave a distinctly
teresting interpretation, showing
careful preparation to the finest de
tails of phrasing and nuance. The
Schubert Impromptu in G maji
displaying a well controlled balance
of tone, brought this group to a
Miss Andrews’ second group op
ened with the “Harmonies Du Soir,”
by Lachulski, in which her playing
was decidedly artistic and effective.
The playful Karkanoff “Seherzino,”
followed this delightful contrast.
This group was brought to a close
with the brilliant Rhapsody of
Dohnanyi, which showed a charm
ing abandon of style and a fluent yet
forceful technic.
The climax of the program
reached in the Beethovien Concerto

Debating Contest In
Expanded Chapel Hour
interesting Questions Discussed Be-
izc'ccn Sophomores and Freshmen
The Expanded Chapel service on
Wcdnt'sday morning, April 23, was
the form of a debating contest be-
een members of the Freshman and
;pliomore classes. Tlie question for
scussion was: “Resolved, that this
dicnce has agreed that higher edu-
tion for women sliould be along
e same line.'? as higher education
Margaret Brennecke, the first
speaker on the affirmative, began her
ission by an explanation of the
term “higher education,” which she
mterpreted to mean a study of lib
eral arts and not certain specific
;quirements. She then set to prove
that the fundamental value and aims
ducation for men and women
the same. This question, she
stated, has been one of utmost in
terest to men and women all over
the w'orld. The first aim of edu
cation is to-ward making better citi-
and communities. Educational
organizations are aids in the devel-
jpment of human beings in society,
lot only so they can live better lives
but that they can help others. Edu
cation of both men and women leads
to happiness, whereas ignorance or
lack of education leads to fear.
Since the ultimate aim of education,
she stated, is to help people meet
the difficulties of life it is not fair
that woman, who lives in the same
social and political world as man be
kept outside his intellectual world.
Elizabeth Marx was the first
speaker for the negative side. Edu
cation in the broader sense, she said,
a preparation for living. Where
2 situation of both men and wom-
will be similar educations should
be identical. Their situations, how-
, are not similar, since the ma
jority of women do not enter the
professional world. She maintained
that an identical system was con
trary to the aims of education. The
accepted theory of education leads
to different training for both sexes,
since education is to prepare for
living and the lives of women are
essentially different from those of
men. In spite of the new avenues
open to women she will continue to
exercise the most influence in the
home. In conclusion, the speaker
stated that it was doubtful that a
woman educated in a man’s college
according to man’s curriculum would
be prepared to meet the problems of
