THE S ALEMITE
Saturday, March 22, 1930.
Spring sports have much to offer
those who take advantage of them
at present. The volley ball season
is well under way, and those who
have gone out have had an hour of
healthy fun each afternoon.
Baseball will begin soon. Those
who have this sport in charge are
waiting for warm and bright weather
before calling the first practise.
A long horseback ride with a pic
nic supper at Clemmons will take
place Saturday afternoon. Much in
terest is being shown in plans for
this, and a large number of riders
are expected to attend.

and diverts herself in card playing
and in participation in the village

weirdly fascinating music.
The mission’s goal is to take

ON HAVING RED HAIR
“Where did she get that red hair?”
s the question sympathetically
asked mv mother as long ago as I
remember by the friendly neigh
bor, who was secretly praising Allah
that her Mary’s hair was blaA. As
an answer mv mother went into a
long, uninteresting story about
hereditv, while I inwardly contend
ed that if I ever found the source
of my affliction, I should willingly
return every red strand. At that age
I did not realize the sad condition
of being bald-headed.
I grew up under the strain of
what seemed to me repulsive nick
names, .suggested only by my red
liair. To a timid child the sound of
“Red-head,” .“Red,” and “Straw-1
berrv blonde” was demoralizing.
When the boys discovered that I
hated mv hair, they insisted upon
teasing me about it. During high
school davs I became so used to I
ing called “Red” that I unintentic
ally answered to that name.
If there is any advantage
having red hair (they say there
good in everthing), it is that red
hair makes a person easily distin
guished in a crowd. On the dance
floor a boy never has a hard time
finding his “red-headed” girl. (

the midst of singing “Saint Louis
Blues,” we forget the words and
fill in with liums. Wliile we scrub
our necks vigorously to the rhythm
of our songs, the soap bubbles dance
over all tlie water. If we are happy,
we become almost hilarious, but if
we have ju.st taken examinations.
Our songs liave a melancholy tone.

Once a singer, who had a ■
derful bath tub voice tried to
in public; he was a failure,
of his friends suggested that a bath
tub (with a screen around it, of
course) be put on the stage. The
artist got into the tub, forgot hif
audience and sang as he had never
sung before. Soon he overcome his
stage-fright and was quite able to
sing out side of a tub.
Although those who are not taking
baths at the same time that we are

vantages to bath tub singing, we
shall always maintain that a bath is
the cure for almost any ill, especial
