any sort of relaxation. Due to the

Sept. 20th, 1929—The exalted
creatures, inadequately called Soph
omores, issue through their honorable
representatives tlie following irre
proachable and inflexible rules of
conduct for insignificant and reeh-
itic specimens of fresh, blue green-
ibess just thrust under thrir care . .
Rule Nu7iiher One—
All said growing green things are
emphatically commanded to walk on
the sidewalk, the whole sidewalk,
and nothing but the sidew'alk,
throughout the whole wetk beginning
on this the twentietli day of Sep
tember, 1929, and ending only when
our end is accomplished and their
end is near. The street is to be left
entirely unpolluted for such superior
beings as upper classmen.
Rule Number Two—■
|Each unmentionably inferior fresh
man is required to wear a wide, char-
actertistieally green ribbon around
her neck each day from 7:00 a. m.
to 10:35 p. m
Rule No. Three—
Makeup of any and every kind is
strictly forbidden.
Rule No. Four—
I As shoes are the lowdiest articles
of the clothing and freshmen are the
lowliest species of human beings, we
decree that freshmen’s shoes, being
thus doubly cursed, shall have their
’ lowliest member, the heels, at lialf-
mast, or better still entirely lacking.
(These clever little Sophomore
thoughts arc probably whirling
■ through your empty heads or detour-
\ ing through your hot-air halos—in
simple language then—JVear no high
i Rule No. Five—
‘ ■ I Said—but better left unsaid—
' ' Freshmen shall address all upper-
t i"^assmen as Honorable.
Rule No. Six—■
I Each of you on whom these
worthy words are bring bestowed
must wear a placard not less than 2
Indies wide and 6 inches long on
which is printed your name preced-
^d by the words (made and patented
Slor special use on abnormally back
ward creaturcs) Dumb and Lo'tt'h/.
These are to be pinned across the
middle of your fronts.
Rule No. Seven—
sc3! Freshmen are allowed to enter and
^^ve dorms by back doors only.
The side entrance of Clewell is re
garded in this instance as tlie ice
man and freshman entrances and ex-
Rule No. Eight—
■ Identify the desire to cross a
street with the desire to skip flea
like, frog-like, or perhaps more ap-
ij^ropriately expressed, Freshman-
ISke, the entire width in a non-stop,
gutter-to-gutter flight.
At 2:00 p. m. on Saturday, Sep
tember 21, 1929, a delightful party
has been planned for the amusement
of upper and lowest classmen. I’
mcn are cordially commanded to ex
pose themselves to entertainment,
while 3'ou, Superior Sages, arc in
vited to witness the s-tveeping results
of a long-to-bc-remembered 2 o’clock
Between tin- anything but few and
far between classes on the morning
of Monday, Sept. 23, 1929. A. D.,
all Dumb anrt Lou'lie.i shall march
through tlic halls from class to class,
reading aloud from some suitable
volume of instruction. The reading
shall lie carried on in a moderate
tone, but must be long, wide, and
deep enongh to fill the monotonous
space between classes and bells.
At 1 :00 p. m., sweep this rule
away from your lonesome scent (foi

the cerebrum, cerebellum, and other
tirms whicli sliould be in but are un

H you have a delightful feeling
that an upperclassman is just before
appearing, clear your tliroat thought
fully. When tile vision actually ap
pears, carol away on this little ditty
entitled “Almighty Sophs.” The
person for whom four cheers wer
invented is honoring you w’ith
glance. The air, when it is given t
you, goes like this:

Princes Heard
At High School
First of 1929 Fine Arts Foundation
Speakers Gives Lecture
Study, study, study, from
to sundown, with a tutor standing by
to see that there is no idling, is the
lot of the Chinese boy or girl W’hose
parents are w-ealthy enougli to hire
a tutor—and if they can hire a tutor
there is little chance to get an edu
cation—according to Princess Der
Ling, the first of the 1929 Fine Arts
Foundation speakers, who was heard
by the pupils of the Richard J. Rey
nolds High School and Hundreds of
community people yesterday.
The Princess brought to her hear
ers an interesting account of life as
it once was lived in old China and
offered the hope that “China was
waking up” and changing into a
country of unbounded possibility.
Having once been chief lady-in-
waiting to the.Dowager Empress of
China and having been well educated
otherwise, the Princess brought a
id and authentic picture of the
former Forbidden City and the social
life of the Chinese people in general.
omen in China have made great
advancement in recent years .and are
ilestined to make more, the Princess
stated. She congratulated the girls
of America on their many privileges
and contrasted them with the privi
leges of the Chinese, or rather their
lack of privileges.
calling especial attention to the two
changes in its constitution, and out
lining the plans for the year. There
is to be a “bathing beaut}’” contest
and a “Good Posture Week” is to
be observed. The purpose of the
association is to emphasize the
strictly physical educational activi
ties, and, in addition to fasten more
closely the relation between the work
of the association and the general
healtli of its members.
A new sport calendar has been ar
ranged by the athletic council, in
cluding fall, winter and .spring ac
tivities. The team games, this year,
are to be played early in the spring
that the last school months may be
devoted to swimming and tennis. The
two changes in the by-laws were
also presented and discussed.
The Vice-President, Celeste Knoe-
fle, then told of her part in the as
sociation and introduced Miss At
kinson who told us of the plans being
made for an arrangement by wdiich
every girl shall have a specified and
required W'eekly amount of exercise.
The organizing of a jazz-orehestra
for the purpose of suppljMng dance
music was mentioned. The secre
tary, Leonora Riggan, introduced the
head of each sport as follows:
Ruth Carter, soccer; Adelaide Win
ston, hockey; Martha Delaney, ten
nis; Anna Preston, swimming; Leo
nora Wilder, riding; Virginia Mart
in, golf; Dorothy Thompson, basket
ball; Edith Kirkland, baseball; Sue
M.aunc}’, track. Each one made an
nouncements concerning her depart
ment and the aims and principles of
each were outlined. There were
several costume parades, including
the “dos” and “dont^s” of what the
athletic girl wears and does. Some
departments had demonstrations of
the individual sports, these being
track, volley-ball, soccer and base
ball. Cheers were then led by the
cheer-leader, Mary Brewer.
Miss F2velyn Wilson, president of
the McDowell Club, next made an
nouncements concerning this social
organization. She urged a 100 per
cent membership, promising the same
kind of an enjoj’able and enlighten
ing entertainments of the past, for
the forthcoming year. The class rep
resentatives of the club, and the staff
were announced, the former being
presented. The aim of this club is
to provide pleasure and entertain
ment on Saturday nights.
I. R. S. was presented by Mar
garet Ross Walker, the president.
This organization includes everj^ girl
the campus, and its aim is to
till into every girl the importance
of “truly representing Salem,’ ’and
of upholding Salem ideals and stand
ards. There is an executive body,
'omposcd of a president, a vice-pres
ident, the four class presidents, the
student government and Y. W. C. A.
presidents and a representative of
each class. Miss Stipe as organizer,
'ctor and faculty advisor of this
club has been largely responsible for
great advancement. The “Social
rum” is the social phase of the or
ganization and is both enjoyable and
profitable, including illustrations and
lectures on etiquette, good dress, so-
entions, and health consid
This year the I. R. S. is attempt
ing to make plans .attractive and di-
-ersified and hopes to carry its slo
gan, “I Represent Salem” into all
phases of college life. The organi
zation begs for the whole-hearted in- and co-operation of its mem
bers, in order that it may make defi-
I nitc expansion and progress.
