This new and distinctly progres sive step in Salem is being received with enthusiasm by students and friends of the College.

Largest Snow of Season This Week Salem Covered. With Blanket Of Snow for First Time This Year Today Winston-Salem is recover ing from the worst blizzard of the season. About a foot of snow cov ered the streets on Thursday, mak ing the operation of city and county schools impossible. Chapel had to be suspended at Salem College due to the inclement weather. Workers w'cre busy yesterday and today clearing the streets in order to facilitate traffic. Not until late yes terday could street cars run on schedule in Green.sboro, Charlotte and Winston-Salem. However, no serious accidents or great damages by the blizzard were reported. A general thaw-out is in prospect today, and galoshes and snow creaui will now be fasse. CONFERENCE COLLEGE TEACHERS POSTPONED On account of the unfavorable weather conditions it has been nec essary to postpone indefinitely the Conference of Members of the North Carolina Association of College Teachers of Education, who were to be the guests of Salem College and the teacher training department of the City Public Schools of Winston- Salem today. The meeting will be held here as soon as a convenient date can be arranged. Of special, interest will be the discussion of “Co-operation Between City School Systems and Depart ments of Education in College.” This question was suggested out of the co-^operation that has existed be- tw'cen the City Public Schools of Winston-Salem and the department of education at Salem College. Dr. John W. Carr, of the depart ment of education at Duke Univer.s- ity, will preside over the meeting. The program has been prepared un der the direction of F'rank H. Koos, assistant superintendent of City Public Schools, Winston-Salem, Dr. M. R. Trabue, of the faculty of the University of North Carolina, na tionally recognized authority on tests and measurements, and Miss Eleanor Foreman, of the department of edu cation, Salem College. Several able education teachers will participate in the program. This will be the second meetiiig of the school year held at Duke Uni versity last fall. The association tries to convene three or four times a year, the frequency depending upon the urgency of matters facing the body. Dr. Rondthaler Talks On Campus Interests College President Discusses in Chapel Founder’s Day, Ath letics, Scholarship and Self-Mastery At the expanded chapel hour Wednesday, Dr. Rondthaler talked on current campus interests. He first discussed the plans for Founder’s Day which will be February 6th. At this time the friends and alumnae of Salem will revisit the campus. That night a banquet will be given for the trustees who are to be the guests of the Seniors. The next topic which Dr. Rond thaler mentioned was college athlet ics. There is developing in the pres ent day American colleges a new spirit of enthusiasm, a different col lege spirit. In the time of the Greeks and Romans there were two types of athletics. The Roman ideal was to engage in contests, to win, to exert one’s bodily strength and show superiority to one’s rival. The Greeks strove for finer things, their ideal was higher. They wished create a sound mind within a sound body. They sought individual per fection. ' The world has since that very re- ite day made marvelous mental and scientific progress, but it has nevc] departed from the Greek ideal, noi has it ever surpassed it. The peoph of today are coming to realize that a well developed body and a clear mind are more important than sue contests. So the women’ colleges of today are very loath to encourage intercollegiate sports. They seek to follow the Greek ideal. The problem of purifying athlet- i in men’s colleges is before the national educational associations. Those who have ceased to engage in iports for sport’s sake, and have a higher end in view have had most gratifying results. A new enthusi- n is spreading over America for wide sports program, which surely more wholesome and has finer results than a college program. The opportunity to be aeti' iports and to derive good from them s limited, it lasts only through the college days. It is one thing to know a game from the side lines and quite another to know it from actual participation as one of the players. In playing in a game an experimental knowledge is gained which will help one to have a dif ferent approach toward young peo ple in later years, will be a posses- cherished always. A person finds a new self-respect in sports. lot true that a college girl does not have time to go out for athletics. A studious budgeting of will give ample opportunity to participate in sports. The third phase of Dr. Rond- thaler’s talk had to do with the scholastic side of college life. He began by asking a general question. What should be a person’s attitude toward his work, past and future? What should be his goal? A student should never allow the making of the highest marks to be his or her goal, she should strive for something finer and farther removed. An adequate goal for anyone to seek is mastery of self. A person should never allow himself to fool himself. He must always have a comradeship with himself of which is not ashamed. He should go I the world confronting the decis- of himself and must be the mas ter of his own methods. In the expanded Chapel service of Wednesday, Jan. 15, Mr. Phin Horton, Jr., of this city, delivered an unusually interesting speech Prohibition Enforcement and the ways in which Prohibition affects the lives of American citizens. In the opening sentences of his speech, Mr. Horton stated that Pro hibition is the one big question be fore the United States today, espe cially one of the biggest problems confronting the Legislative and Ju dicial bodies of the Federal Govern ment. It is the theme of the able writers, the topic of eloquent orators and the subject of profound stud- i. The attitudes toward prohibi tion are numerous and quite differ- Nature. Some people damn 3 praise it, some are luke- n their attitude toward it, however none hesitate to question it. On January 29, 1919, the acting Secretary of State at that time is sued a proclamation from Washing ton, stating that thirty-six of the forty-eight states had ratified ar Amendment to the Constitution pro hibiting the sale and the transporta tion of intoxicating beverages. By ratification the Eighteenth Amendment came into force In 1920. Some people thought this movement fas the natural result of an ad- anced civilization and they received t with enthusiasm. However, the opponents were many. The Anti prohibitionists argued that this issue ratified, while two million of the United States’ men were still in Europe, and that the Amendment had been sanctioned not because of public opinion but because of the TheSentinel’s staff photographer takes pictures “at random” on the streets of the business district every afternoon.

GREAT PROGRESS IN NEW BUILDINGS Home Economies Seniors are now using the new Practice House— which actually makes house-keeping pleasure. The girls vie for first •y in assuming their duties as mod- l cooks and bottle-wasliers. Form erly this practical application of knowledge was dreaded by the Home Ec’ students, but now it is antici pated with glee.

After the adoption of the Eight eenth Amendment, the interest was transferred from its adoption to its enforcement. In regard to enforce ment, Congress passed the famous Volstead Act in 1920, which went into effect with the Amendment and which fixed the limit at one-half of percent alcohol. On March 23, 1923, North Carolina passed what is known as the Turlington Bill, an Act which is similar to the Volstead Act. These two Acts of legislation formed the bulwark of prohibition enforcement. Mr. Horton said that the definite effect of prohibition on the average citizen of the United States, as yet, has not been determined, however, there is a certainty that a very subtle but unmistakable change has taken place. For one thing, prohibition has greatly decreased the poverty, cruelty and suffering caused by drunkenness. Increased efficiency has caused a decided raise in wages and the money, which was formerly ipent for liquor is being converted low into the necessities and com forts of life. In the last few years, a definite integration has arisen in regard to prohibition. This integration is caused by the higher society and the deplorable number of women who drinking. Mr. Horton empha sized the fact that prohibition is doomed if woman destroys the ped estal on which man has placed her and begins to engage in liquor- (Continued on Page Four) STATE MAN MAKES HIM SELF RIDICULOUS BY FLARING TALK Some people have such a magnani- 3us desire to make themselves pop ular that they usually become an ob ject of ridicule. Such was the case of a certain State College student hen he tried to put himself in the limelight by making a flaring and sarcastic speech regarding the co at State. He failed in his at tempt to win notoriety. Instead, he has been made laughing stock. The speech is as follows: “Members of the Self-Help Club, I welcome this opportunity to ad dress you on what I consider to be a most pertinent question. Pertinent questions have varying degrees of pertinency. This question, at hand, the most pertinent of all the large family of pertinent questions. “Members of the freshman class, your time spent at State has neces sarily been short. You have not been privileged to see the great change in State since the invasion of the short- skirted demons. But you, members of the upper classes, have seen and ground your teeth in helpless rage at the uninvited, uncalled, and unso licited female encroacher at this in stitution. And helpless rage it is. You are forced to sit back with your hands tied. You have tried ridicule —you have attempted sarcasm—you have employed facts and figures in attempt to rid this institution of parasites. These co-eds contrib ute nothing to the welfare of the college community. They vote for student government officers—they cast their ballots for changes advo cated or suggested by the Student Council, but they will not allow themselves to be governed by the very men that they help to elect. Is this not the most high-handed piece of treachery ever perpetrated by s and daughters of men? ‘Now let us look at another side of the question. Why should the i-eds, of all the colleges giving work similar to this institution. choose a college that is traditionally a college for men ? Why should they so place themselves in the com promising position for the benefit of a few paltry dollars? These and many other questions will have to be thoroughly investigated and an swered before a satisfactory answer to the main question can be arrived “However, let us not lay the en tire blame of this mistake on the shoulders of the “co-eds.” It is en tirely possible that the administra tion should come in for its part of the blame. Of all the mistakes that the present administration has made —of all the oversights that have been allowed—of all shortcomings it is responsible for—this is the most uncalled for error that has been jnade. It has permitted, in spite of all the students who wanted this to remain a man’s college, women to invade the sacred portals of State College—to completely upset the state of affairs that has existed long before the advent of women students and should continue long after their departure. “Students! You own this college. Your fees, your tuition, the taxes of your fathers have made this institu tion what it is. Why, then, should not your wishes be respected? De mand your rights! You are men, not children, and as men, have these parasites ejected from the campus of State College, that State may re main a man’s school, run by men and for men. I thank you.” —Techo Echo. FOUNDER’S DAY TO BE OBSERVED NEXT WEEK On February sixth Founder’s Day will be celebrated at Salem College. At this time Alumnae will revisit the campus. The Salem Museum will be opened for inspection by guests at the school. A banquet will be held that night at which the members of the Senior Class will be hostesses to the trustees.
