for this, a i)hysical and psychologi- one. The physical isolation of
the country is the result of the fact

mountains and the fact that it is so

Mr, Barnett spoke of having been in
America some six years ago when
the tragic news of the Clilnese earth
quake came, and of tlie immediate
relief that America sent, showing by
this way tliat the (’hinese look to
America for everything.
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

that those who wish to destroy re

Speaks in Y. W.
C. A. Vespers for Sunday,
October 6th, was unusually interest
ing. 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

was pleading, and for which He still

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.

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!
Mr. Curlee acts the part of Chest-
r Briggs, the weak, deferential em-
iloyee of Mr, Judson’s. Mr. Curlee
rails along in riic wake of his self-
Mr. Schofield plays well the part
if a young college cliap with a well-
developed voice and a strong sense
of humor.
It will be quite a treat to see Dr.
Anscombe play the part of Otto, a
hard-faced, sliifty-eyed and clever
malefactor about twenty-five years
