There are two good rules
which ought to be written on
every heart: Never believe any
thing bad about anybody un
less you positively know it is
true! never tell even that, un
less you feel that it is abso
lutely necessary, and that God
is listening while you tell it.
—Henry Van Dyke.

WILL YOU CO-OPERATE?
The mention of the term student
co-operation probably carries w’ith
little force to the average student,
but a careful survey of the activities
engaged in on this campus, give
striking evidence of the practice of
sincere co-operation. Some features
of our school life require less co-op
eration on the part of the students
than do others. There is. liowev
one product of student enterpr:
that has come in tlie course of tii
to be limited to the work of a few,
but which should represent the
bined effort of many; namely, The
This article is not intended to
condemn, nor to be of a critical
nature, for it can be readily s
that the tendency in such a i
would be to let tlie few directly
sponsible for the paper manage
every detail—that is only a natural
inclination. T^he real purpose of
these statements is to bring before
the students of Salem College this
fact—tliat the Salemite
“staff” publication but a “college”
publication, and it is the desire that
be used as such.
The Salemite should be the
rument through wliich student
opinions are voiced, and throug^i
which tliose outside of our immedi-
able to obtain an idea
of the personality and character of
•ollege. It should give a picture
of student life, our progressiveness,
ur ambitions, and our interest in the
ffairs of life about us.
To a certain degree we grant that
these things are accomplished, but
they are accomplished tlirough tlie
undertaking of a small group. The
editor and the staff of the Salemite

participation and criticism on the

On Reaching Out for Stars
I used to cry and pound the bed
And dash my fists against my head.
Because the nurse unkindly said
I could not reach tlie stars.
I pushed and stretched by feeble
Despite the doctor’s cold com-
I tried to clutch at Mars.
In recent years I’ve grown more
About the planets in ^he skies
I’ve learned their distance, shape
But still I yearn and strain!
But yesterday I reached for Venus;
My ode to her outshone Maecenas
But could not bridge the gulf be
Nor ease my inward pain.
The stars swim onward attended by
Their satelites, thru leagues of sky.
The foolish figure—that is I,
All bruised and wounded sore
But tho’ observers cynical
May smile and call me finical
I’ll stand upon this pinnacle
And reach forever more!

LIBRARY BOOKS LOST
A number of library books have
een re]iorted as “lost” by the li
brarian on the latest list posted.
; the opening of school, books
have been missing continually. This
condition is a hindrance both to
the librarian, who must check up
and account for all volumes, and to
students who may wish to use them.
In addition there is a financial loss
unless they are ' found. In most
cases, the loss of these books is in
excusable and comes mainly as a
result of the carelessness and indif
ee of those to whom they are
entrusted. It is hoped that those
■ntly used these books, and any
■,ons who may see one of them,
>vill make it her responsibility to
that they are returned to the
iry. Incidentally, tliis is an ex
cellent opportunity to show your
school spirit in a helpful way.
The lost books are as follows:
French, J. L., Editor—Great
Lawrence—Sons and Lovers.
Austin—Political and Social His
tory of the United States.
Harper’s Magazine, December
For Sale—One good cow giving
milk and three hounds.—Fred Fah-
WHAT a difference the right
sanitary protection makes
under your smart new frocks!
With clumsy methods ... you have
awkward lines and bulges. With
Kotex . . . smooth fit, a minimum of
bulk; never a revealing outline.
Kotex is made of a remarkable ab
sorbent which makes bulk unneces
sary. And so easy to dispose of!
This is Cellucotton (not cotton)
absorbent wadding ... a substance
so superior for sanitary purposes that
you’ll find it used in 85% of the
Kotex Company, Chicago, Illinois.
KOTEX IS SOFT . . .
1—Not a deceptive softness, that
ness. But a delicate, lasting
2-Kotexfiller is far lighter
and cooler than cotton, yet
absorbs 5 times as much.
