\loi. ^11, DAY WINSTON-SALEM, N. C„ FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1932 Dr. Edmund Schwarze Addresses Salem Students Trustee Takes Students On Holy Land Tour Relics From Palestine Are Shown to Interested Spec tators at Y. P. M. The guest speaker for Expanded chapel, Wednesday, Februar}' 3, was Dr. Edmund Schwarze, pastor of Calvary Moravian Church and mem ber of the Salem College Board of I'rustees, who recently returned from a tour of the Holy Land. Having travelled much, he is also a traveller, in the true sense of the word. 'I'he motto of Rome was “to have; of Greece, “to know;” and of Pales tine, to be.” In all of us there has been at one time or another a deep longing to visit Palestine, the land of moral verity, ultimate authority, and spiritual light. Of the two routes to enter the Holy Land—from the North through Syria and from the South through Egypt—the latter is the more inspir ing. It seems fitting to stand before the prone statue, forty feet long, of the same Pharoah, Ramases the Sec ond, before which Moses plead for the freedom of the children of Israel, and then to travel in a sleeper to Jerusalem over the same route which the suffering Isarelites, with countless hardships, followed for forty years. Into the tiny space on the map known as Palestine are crowded all the geographical characteristics of the entire world. Going from Jerusa lem, which is 2500 feet above level, to the Dead Sea, which is 1500 feet below sea level—scarcely a hour’s journey apart—is like going from the temperate to the torrid zone. From the unbelievably hot banks of the Dead Sea one can see the top of Mount Herman, perpetually snow capped. In the Dead Sea is a wealth of minerals and chemicals—phos phates, sulphates, and potash. In one part of Palestine grows wheat and other grains belonging natively to northern climates, and in another part there is dense tropical foliage. Likewise there is a wide diversity of people including Jews, Syrians, Arabs, Turks, and Europeans—some living exactly as people lived in Old 'Festament times and others bringing in ultra-modern ideas. On the fine roads connecting the cities of Pales tine people traveling in high-powered cars meet camel trains, thus the past and the present are united. American tourists to Jerusalem usually stay at the American colony * buildings formerly belonging a wealthy Mohammedan, which housed his scores of wives. One of the most interesting plac in Jerusalem is the site of the temple - that had been built on the top of Mount Moriah on the spot where Abraham built the altar to sacrifice Mary B. Williams to Lead Junior Class Class of ’33 Elects Successor To Miss Me Anally At a recent meeting held by the Junior Class, Miss Mary B. Williams w-as elected President of the class of ’33. She fills this office in the stead of Miss Irene McAnally who is now a student at High Point College. Miss Williams, of Wilmington N. C., actively participates in various school activities, and is fully capable of filling her new position. Music Hour Features Students’ Recital Interesting Program Is Well Inter'preted Students representing the voice, piano, and violin departments of the School of Music participated in a re cital at Music Hour on Thursday aft- on in Memorial Hall. Compo sitions of. modern and ancient com posers were rendered, and the type was varied enough to be very satisfy ing. Each interpretation had i something of the performer.

The Sunshine Phillips The Answer Terrj- Donreith Smothers Witches Dance MacDowell Edith Fulp Joy Through Prayer Is Vespers Subject Dr. Howard Rondthaler Ad mires Jesus’ Choice of Spots for Prayer On Sunday, January 31, Vespen opened with the singing of “Father of Lights,” followed by the scripture lesson in the form of responsive read ing. The choir sang “Into the Woods my Master Went,” which had a good deal of bearing on Dr. Rondthaler’ talk, “Finding Joy in Life Through Prayer.” The talk contained many personal ideas and experiences on the subject of prayer. Dr. Rondthaler stated that prayer should be the essential features of a man’s day, the source of his strength and his courage in all mat ters. He told how Jesus went into th« garden, and the wilderness, and under the trees, away from everyone, to pray. Salem itself is surrounded by trees and secluded spots where the students be alone to commune with God. He also said that even in a large crowd a person has a good chance to pray. He may be surrounded by people and yet be alone; his pray and thoughts will make him feel ; perior and give him a sense of peace and safety. Dwight Moody, noted evangelist, said that, while waiting for some one, a person often prays. Fli mind is at rest and he feels better after talking with God. , The meeting was concluded with the hymn, “Softly the Silent Night,’ followed by the Y. W. C. A. Watch word and the Choral Amen. Former Paper Gives Interesting Tid-Bits Extracts From the Academy, Predecessor of the Salemite Volume 1, Number 1, March, 1878 School Gossip “Hyacinths are beginning to ap pear in the play-grounds. It is astonishing how many male cousins some of the Academy girls do have. It was unmistakably a First Room young lady, and not an Eighth Room little girl, whom we saw a few days since going about in search of doll- baby patterns. The birthday of the Principal on the 12th of December was rendered memorable by his granting us the lib erty, from that day forward, of con versing during meals. We doubt not that former pupils, who may read this, will rejoice with us, perhaps envy us, for we certainly enjoy our meals more than when the silent sys tem prevailed.” English Raised to Level of Latin and Greek 1 “English, at the Academy, has been accorded its full claims, as a branch of liberal study, and has been placed on a footing of equality with Latin and Greek, as these languages rank in collegiate studies. It is taught under the forms of Grammar, Composition, History of the English language and literature, and critical study of the literature itself.” Where Are They Now? November, 1884: “The approaching cool weather has necessitated the removal of the orange and lemon trees from the yard the green-house. They formerly graced the square top of the front portico, but of late years have been placed in the yard, where they stand, like a hollow square of sentinels.” Reckless Driving in 1884 “Bicycles are dangerous 1 Witness a scene in the Avenue a short while ago. A group of lively First Room girls scampering along, intent upon getting a legitimate amount of fun and exercise out of the few remain ing moments of daylight, when sud denly -there is a stampede,—a few ‘Oh’s’ and suppressed shrieks,—; young man dismounting rather hur riedly from a bicj'cle, and several young ladies, decidedly ruffled in temper, and slightly bruised by the collision.” Chronicle and Gossip February, 1866. “Dr. Rondthaler made a visit of several weeks north, in the interests of the school, as well as for the bene fit of his health. He left here Jan uary 20th. Since the Library and Reading- room are so much more attractive in consequence of the removal, the at tendance is increasingly large, a grati fying result.” A Predecessor of Miss Covington’s Card of Thanks! “The prompt return of the girls who spent the holidays at home, was a matter of special gratification. It is so much better to be in time and then take up work with earnestness and zeal.” Salem Greets Alumnae, Trustees and Visitors Sorority Basketball Games Begin Monday Sigmas and Thetas to Fight Cage Contest February Eighth The Sorority games will begin Monday, February the eighth, and are to be played as a ladder tourna- :. In a ladder tournament the ler of the first game plays an other sorority and the winner of this game plays the next sorority. The line-up of games is as follows: (1) Theta-Sigma game, Monday, February 8th. (2) Winner plays Kappa Sorority, Wednesday, February 10th. (3) Winner plays Beta Sorority, Friday, February 12th. Most of the games will be played in the evening early after dinner; however, the game Wednesday night will be at nine-fifteen. The game Monday night will be played at seven- fifteen. “The Hut” will probably be filled to overflowing with excited specta tors. So get your front row seat re served, and come on out for the citement 1 Another Card of Thanks “It has been so long since the Academy girls witnessed a marriage, especially in the church, that they ful ly appreciated Miss Jessie Winkler’s kindness in inviting them to hers, and will try and return the compliment when their time comes.” Serenade and Dance in 1886 “The Italian band have been sere- (Continued on Page Three) Unique Collection of Photos on Display Salem Library is Scena of Washington’s Photographs And Memoranda Tonight, as a special feature of Founder’s Day, a group of pictures, books, and original documents, con cerning George Washington will be on exhibit in the library. Through the courtesy and generosity of Mi Owen D. Moon, President of the Journal and Sentinel Publicati and owner of about 100 prints of Washington, alumnae, students, and trustees will have the rare opportun ity of seeing one of the most unique collections of Washington photo graphs available. Mr. Moon is sole owner of this group of pictures is doing Salem a deeply appreciated favor in his unselfish willingness to allow his prints to be displayed for the trustees tonight and for students tomorrow morning. Mr. Moon also furnishing guides to aid the ob servers in understanding the pictures. There are approximately twenty framed pictures hung in the library, many of which are in colors. They include such phases of Washington’s life as his crossing the Delaware, his reception by Trenton women after the battle of Trenton, his pathetic figure at Valley Forge, and several handsome paintings of the general on horseback. The portraits of Wash ington vary in coloring and pose, but are authentic likenesses. Probably the loveliest pictures in the collection are the 18 mounted, un framed prints. While these prints are more complete and varied in their coloring, they deal with subjects iden tical with the framed ones. Many artists have added their interpreta tions to the originals by brush, espec ially to Washington’s reception at Trenton, crossing the Delaware, and his facial expressions. Of peculiar interest are the cases devoted to original documents, books, and relics. There is an original copy of the memorial service, “In Memory of General Washington, Salem, Feb ruary 22, 1800.” This service took place in Gemein House where Main Hall now stands. This same serv ice, without variations, is to be re peated at Home Moravian Church on Sunday, Feb. 21, 1932. Alumnae Meeting In Library at 8:00 College and Academy Honor Visitors With Various Entertainments The celebration of Founder’s Day was begun this morning at eight- thirty chapel when Miss Adelaide Fries of the General Alumnae Associa tion Board spoke of life at Salem in the past and the present.

Alumnae of Winston-Salem and‘other cities were enthusiastically welcomed and will continue to be received throughout the remainder of the day until the beginning of the Alumnae Association meeting tonight in the col lege library.

Remarkable Attendance Record Is Commended Only One Overcut is Recorded At Salem For First Term The Attendance Committee is very much pleased with the record made by Salem students during the first semester of this year. I During the first four and one-half months of this school session there has been only one overcut, and this was a case of negligence, rather than of de liberation. This is a very unusual rec ord for a school of Salem’s size. In chapel, Saturday, January 30th, Miss Covington, chairman of the Cut Com- nittee, enthusiastically commended the students on this admirable record.
