I.ast week President Hoover took
Secretary Hurley, Assistant Secre
tary Payne, Chief of Staff Mac-
Artliur, Chief of Engineers Brown,
Quartermaster General DeWitt, and
Congressman Will Wood (Appro
priations) to his mountain camp on
the Rapidan for the purpose of cut
ting army costs. Since the deficit
rose last week above the $900,000,-
000 mark. Hoover felt that the U. S.
must economize somehow. While he
worked over the rough draft of his
Memorial Day speech at Valley
Forge, the men decided that cuts
could be made. Hoover has not a
nounced what the cuts would be.
The plans of the Athletic Asso
ciation are to have four practice
holes of golf on the athletic field.
"Already energetic people, under the
direction of Prof. Charles Higgins,
have began repairing the athletic
field. Soon there will be “fore
holes” sure enough. Lack of equip
ment has hindered the popularity of
golf on Salem campus, but with holes
on our own field, many people should
take up golf with “wim, wigor, and.
little witality” next year.

favor of a renewed drive. The ma-
of the discussion centered
around the importance of securing
a new building.

harassment to all concerned and

It was pointed out that many
prospective students have gone else

have been forced to give up courses
which they would otherwise have
taken because no degree in Physical
Education work is offered at Salem.
Such a degree, it is believed, would
be possible witli the construction of
new facilities for teaching the needed
The present building was viewed as
a menace to health on account of
-•the distribution of heat, the small
ness of space for players and spec
tators, the condition of the floor,
and the leaks in the roof. It was
predicted that the installment of
more extensive and beneficial equip
ment for class work and extra-cur
riculum activities would increase the
general scholarship average, swell
the number of those interested in
athletics and aid greatly in the es
tablishing of better and more united
school spirit. A plea was also made
that the Student Body continue the
work started by former students who
gave their interest and support
the movement of athletic activities,
realizing them to be of inestimable
value to Salem.
