There'have been two reasons for this, a i)hysical and psychologi- c.il one. The physical isolation of the country is the result of the fact tliat the country is bound by high mountains and the fact that it is so far east from the rest of the world. Because of tliis isolation the country Salem GJrl Wins Trophy in Face of Keen Competition at Invitation Tournament Virginia Martin, president of the Student Self-Government Associa- won the distinction of being runner-up in the Women’s Invitation olf Tournament this week.

Sociallv, China is leaving the old patriarchal family. The well known courtship and wedding customs and negotiations, carried out by parents of contracting parties, with the in dividual having little initiative or in- deptndence are fast disa}>pearing. With tliis disapi.earance have come, naturally, many evils and at the present day the divorce record is extremely large. The idea of wom en having no definite place in tlie world except as servants has almost wholly gone, and many women are being educated and are coming into their own.” The government is fast becoming one “of the people, by the people, for the people.” A question has oft en been raised as to how one pact can influence 100,000,000 people. This is accomplislied by effecting the nation’s “key men,” and here our speaker pointed out to us a specific influence of his Y. M. C. A. work on China. Of the executive body of the government, six of every ten men Christians for China has dr largely from the Y. M. secretari for officials in the diverse branches of her government.

The service was opened with a hymn, following whicli Lillie Tay lor read a passage from the scrip tures. After the ' iid hymn, Eliz abeth Rondthaler, >vho has recently returned from a tour with the West minster Choir, sang a lovely solo. Mrs. Rondthaler then spoke on the Balance that should be in a woman s life. She told about Jesus’ visit to the home of Mar^and Martha (Luke 10:38-4.2), and l^ow Martha became annoyed at Mary and criticized her for not helping with the household affairs. It is a mistake to think that .fesus’ answer to her was a rep: for it was with patience and under standing that He spoke. With Ilis keen insight into character, He had analyzed the inner feelings of Mai and the outward emotion of .Martha who was concerned with prepa ration of the meal. Sometimes girh of the present generation unconsci ously make the same mistake that Martha made. They should reproved, but should be cautioned against becoming too concerned about the material things of life to take time to sit at the Master’ and talk with Him. In His reply to Martha, Jesus did not mean to imply that a disciple of Mary’s type was the better, only pleading for balance tha’s life, in Mary’s life, in every- rkable foresight enabled Him to see through the Ages, beyond the changes Time would bring, into the Life of Today. No matter how busy persons may be, they should take time for spirit ual food—time, figuratively, to sit at the feet of ('lirist each day, and to grow spiritually as Mary did. “While working with our hands and minds, we should not allow ourselves to neglect our souls,” said Mrs Rondthaler, “And when Jesus an swered Martha it was this, Trui Balance in our lives, for which H( was pleading, and for which He still pleads.” ful.” The Annual deserve such early progress a applai 5 for Hard Fought Soccer Games Near Finals Winners of Soccer Games For This Week Will Play for Championship Monday On Tuesday afternoon the soccer field was decorated with a color scheme of purple and red. All over the field the colors were intermin gled, and sometimes, in the big rush, the purple and red came together and clashed a bit violently. In oth er words, the Seniors were playing the Freshmen in soccer. It was a hard-fought game, too, and although they played an extra quarter neither side gave up its firm stand. The score was tied. The next afternoon, Wednesday, the Sophomores and Juniors met in fierce combat. Both teams struggled heroically, but the Juniors, in a ve hement dash, made a goal and the Sophomores—just didn’t. And that was the end of the Junior-Sophomore game. The score was 1 0. 'I'he Sophomores then played the Freshmen on Thursday, and lost their last chance to be in the final games, because the score at the end of the fifth quarter was 2 to 1 favor of the Freshmen On Monday the winners of the games already played will compete for the Soccer Cup, which will be awarded to the best t/;aTO.

Freshmen Leaders In Efficiency Gampaign Red and Black Ribbons On Efficiency Cup During First Week of Campaign The week beginning on Wednes day, Octolier 1, introduced a new kind of contest to Salem College, a health contest called “The Efficiency C'ampaign.” Cards Mystery of Who’s Who In Senior Play Cleared The Hidden Guest” to Be a Romping Riot; Splendid Cast Selected Attention, everybody! A great lystery is to be solved! Of course, veryoiie in Salem College and in Winston-Salem is just dying to know ; who in the Senior play, the ap’ •h of which was announced in last week’s Salemite. So here it is: ; Brown Phillips, as Miss Minnie Mayfield, a negative little ipinster of forty-five, is quite a suc- •ess. Timorous and sensitive, she is jasily dominated by more positive minds. Feature Lessie Brown as a prim little old lady with gray hair id a lavender dress ! Fritz Firey, as Ruby Mayfield, takes the lead. She plays the part of the up-to-date modern girl who has a surface air of worldliness, but •eality is ingenuous and unspoiled. Beautiful and modish, her chances are A-1 in the matrimonial market. Fritz F'irey fills this role of the mod- 1 girl in her usual capable manner. Athena Campourakis carries off the part of Mrs. Barrington, a ■d, fashionable and somewhat young widow to perfection, iry Neal Wilkins fills the part of the'athletic society girl, whose greatest thrills are derived from speeding her own car. “Neal” struts her stuff in this fitting role. Last in the line if the feminine roles is of Melanthura, or “Mel ons,” played by Mary Brewer. Mary furthers her reputation as Lon Chan ey 11 by successfully portraying a stubborn, and somewhat stupid serv ant, who is hampered by the infirm ity of her deafness. Mr. MacDonald plays John Jud kins, a well-groomed, confident and successful man between forty-five and fifty years of age, whose care fully genial demeanor is marred by an unconscious hut well-defined pom posity. Mr. MacDonald adds a slight, but i)leasing, touch of humor to his portrayal of Judkins. Mr. Forrest “b'uniiy” Fulton of this city ])lays the leading male role in the person of Bert Judkins, a manly, good-looking and likeable young collegian. Because of his former experience (in the field of drama, of course), Mr. Fulton is ex- o make all the little Salem girls’ hearts go pitter-patter!
