THE S A L E M I T E'
Saturday, December 7, 1929.
Basketball practice for 1929-
1930 began Tuesday afternoon In the
Hut. A good number of girls went
out for the scrimmage, but not half
the number of girls that is expeetcd
to come out later.
Last year basketball was voted the
most popular sport on the campus.
It has been started a little later this
year than usual, but this is no rea
son for the sport’s being less popular
Because everybody is greatly inter
ested in basketball, and because after
the class teams, of si^ girls each,
have been chosen the majority of
other girls lose interest, the Athletic
Association has a new plan. Miss
“At” and the Association wai
interest every girl at Salem in
sport, to do this the following divis
ions of the sport have been made:
Inter-sorority basketball. Intra-mur
al, boskttball, and Inter-class bas
ketball. Every girl at Salem ought
to and will have a personal interest
in one of these divisions, if no!
Therefore every girl at Salem will
come out to practice the school’s fa
Dot Thompson, manager of bas
ketball, says there will be scrim
mages in the Hut every afternoon at
Every Salem girl is urged

Brilliant, witty and eccentric, 1
raeli valued, above all, success-
man far removed from the petty
jealousies and bigotry of his time.
His contemporaries, including his
most powerful enemy, Gladstone,
were forced to acknowledge the wis
dom and power of this man who
dreamed of a great British Empire.
However, he remained always a man
of simple tastes, unspoiled by the
flattery that crowned his late success.
To the last he was a man who loved
life with the unfailing intensity that
characterized everything he ever did

days of the week.

British analysts have suggested
that the slump of the Amei'
.stock market will mean an improve
ment in their own country’s u
ployment problem, since formerly
high speculators caused a continual
drain of English gold which they
used as call money. Now that the
American has lost his appetite for
high priced money the result should
be more capital for John Bull.
One of Stockholm’s leading phy
sieians is responsible for the begin
ning of a program for cheering up
Sweden’s hospital rooms with gay
colored walls. His theory is that
while art in museums, churches,
schools, etc., may be hastily enjoyed,
patients will have much time for
contemplation and will be greatly
heartened in their search for health.
In pursuance of this policy even the
operating rooms have been dteorated
in live colors.
