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

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.

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
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.

Interesting Tid-Bits
Extracts From the Academy,

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
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.”

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.

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.
