Dr. Rondthaler Reads Comments On Smoking Greater Number of Editorials And Letters Are Favor able to Privilege At Wednesday expanded Chapel, November 18, Dr. Rondthaler read to the student body a number of edi torials and letters concerning the new privilege of smoking. The talk was not Dr. Rondthaler’s opinion on the subject, but merely an insight into the problem which faced the trustees of Salem during past months. Dr. Rondthaler stated before reading any examples that as he wished to be fair to both sides of the question, he would read letters of both approval and disapproval, urged the students to deliberate both sides, and to make their own indi vidual decisions only after careful thought. He commenced by reading the olution of the board concerning smoking, which stressed the fact that the board wished to discouragt loking as well as deceitfulness by bringing the matter out in the open where it would be dealt with accord- igly- Although some of the letters read ere expressions of disapproval, the majority of them were in favor of the forward step. Most of these, al though disapproving of the actual habit of smoking, heartily endorsed the idea of bringing the matter the open and providing a special place. Most also gave their permis sion for their daughters to smoke. Those who expressed their disapprov al gave as their chief objections: in jury to health, youth of girls, forma tion of habit, and the contradiction of morals of the home. The majority of the newspaper editorials also were in favor of look ing the issue in the face. However, the writers believed that personal honor and co-operation were neces- Salem Girls Invade The Anchor Store Salem Anchor Day on Thurs day Proves Success Hurrying footsteps, wondering clamations, brows furrowed with per plexed frowns, jovial smiles and laughter on all sides, and business-like airs—signs of Anchor Day.

Jitney Players Give Excellent Performance Dr. Anscombe Discusses Prosperity In France Compares Economic Status of France With Other Countries “The Future Of Light' Is Topic For Y. P. M. Mr. Roy Palmer Gives Splen did Demonstrated Talk At the expanded chapel before Thanksgiving, Mr. Roy Palmer, of the Southern Public Utilities Co. of Charlotte, gave a demonstrated lecture on “The Future of Light.” Palmer succeeded in gaining ev- ane’s interest and in holding it ighout the unusual, attractive demonstration. He stated that it is rather hard for the people of today to realize that electric lights have been in use only of recent years. It was in 1879 that Edison invented the incandescent light. It is evident how much the electric light has developed since that time, and undoubtedly it will continue to develop in the coming Palmer asserted that man’s work is made easier and more effi- because of good lighting. By showing letters on a cylinder, first without good light, and then with it, he ably proved_this fact. He further stated that though by nature an out-of-door person, under the present conditions of living man stays indoors most of the time. The sun gives out ultra-violet rays, there are electric lights which give out ultra-violet rays. These lights, the sunshine for indoors, will r.

Music Hour Features Student’s Recital | Varied Program is Artistically Rendered In Memorial Hall on Thursday, December 3, at 4:00 o’clock, the sec ond student’s recital of the year was the feature of Music Hour. Each department of the School of Music was'represented in a well rounded and artistically rendered program piano, ’cello, violin, harp, and vocal numbers which were adapted to bring the particular capabilities of the performers. The program was as follows: The Harmonica Player Guion (From “Alley Tunes”) Hazel Hunter Printemps qui Commence Saint-Saens Adelaide Silversteen Etude in G Moskowski Frances Suttlemyre Waltz in A Flat.

Although the cast was formed from All Star” players two players were exceptionally able in managing their roles. Edmund Forde as Monsieur Jourd:i(in, the bourgeois gentleman who sought the most eligible of the eligible people to marry his charm ing daughter, portrayed his role ex cellently. The outstanding artist among the remainder of the cast was Alice Keating Cheney who played the role of “Marquise Dorimene.’ certain colors shine brilliantly under ultra-violet rays, while other colors remain unseen. Mr. Palmer’s teeth and eyeballs shone clearly under the light. Certain beads and flowers shone out brightly under the light, though sometimes their color was dif ferent from the one seen under ordi nary light. According to Mr. Palmer, lights are used not only for efficiency and health, but also for decorative pur poses. The future will surely bring forth many developments in the deco rative use of light. A few outstand ing hotels are already using lights for interior decoration. A wall may have a border of lights which may be readily changed from one color The Jitney Flayers have appeared Entire School Wages War On Silverfish here twice before and have been well received.

Victory, at last! France is Heading Toward Rapid Decline Wednesday, November 4, at the expanded Chapel period. Dr. Francis Anscombe, Head of the History Ds* partment, spoke authoritatively con cerning the economic situation of France in comparison with the status of other countries since the World War. Within the last decade France has risen to enviable heights. England, once the center of world trade, and Germany, formerly unbelievably pro in science, education and acquisition of colonies, have fallen in the background ; today France rates second only to the United States among the great countries of the world. There are many evident causes for such prosperity. Most of the fighting was done in France; thus, as a result, the country was devastated and the whole industrial system was para lyzed. One million men were killed while one half of the adult males were injured. France has a land owning system that is much more advantageous than that of England. As an outcome of the French revo lution the lands were seized by the peasants; and so, today, instead of large estates as in England, the French soil is distributed among and owned by individuals who, although they are not rich, make a living and by their thriftiness manage to keep something hidden away. England has a very unevenly scattered popula tion due to the large country estates and the numerous densely populated cities. From such a situation it is readily seen that unemployment is a more serious problem in England. The birth rate and population of France is lower than that of Germany or England. From 1700 to 1921, England’s population increased from six million to thirty-seven million while that of France increased from nineteen million to thirty-nine mil lion. Today France has 40,000,000 people, while Germany has 60,000,- 000. The French people realize that the birthrate is declining. Many peo ple say that France has had her day. The explanation of the decreasing population is that the French, a proverbially thrifty people, refuse to have large families unless they are able to support them; they practice birth control openly and . without shame. How has France been able to re cover? In the first place the govern ment receives 52 per cent of all the Dean C. G. Vardell, Jr. Plays Organ at Vespers Christmas Selections From Various Countries Were Ably Played Sunday evening Vespers consisted of an organ recital by Dean Vardell which was given in Memorial Hall. Among his selections were Conso lation in D Flat Major by Liszt, An Old French Christ?nas Carol by Alexander Dumas, a variation of Hark, the Flerald Angels Sing, and a selection from a Pastorale by Bach. ■ His interesting and enjoyable pro gram was interrupted before its com pletion, much to everyone’s regret, by the chimes in the Salem Church.
