Basket Ball Season
Sophomores Are Final Win
ners in Tourney
The cabaret, Larryronde, ...
full sway at Salem College last Sat
urday night, opening formally at six
o’clock in celebration of the finals
of the basket ball season.
At this festive show the cup was
presented to Georgia Huntington,
the captain of the Sophomore team,
by Mr. Tony Wons (otherwise
known at home and abroad as M*
Charles Vardell). Miss Atkinson, i..
addressing the boys and girls of the
radio audience, talked over the basket
ball question and gave as a fact that
more girls had been out for the sport
this year than ever before. Over
seventy-nine girls had actually par
ticipated in the games.
The exciting moment of the eve
ning came when Miss Atkinson
awarded the new trophies, which
were silver bar pins with a basket
ball trophy in the center. In picking
varsity, sportsmanship was considered
along with floor play. The list was
as follows:
Seniors: Mildred Biles, Anna
Preston, Pat Holderness.
Juniors: Emily Mickey, Josephine
Walker, Mary Katherine Thorpe,
Mae Johnson.
Sophomores: Grace Pollock,
Georgia Huntington, Maggie Holle-
man, Elizabeth Leake.
Freshman: Rachel Carroll, Cokey
Preston, Margaret Long, Martha
This list, so Coach Atkinson stated,
was read with permission of the copy
right owners.
The orchestra furnished heavenly
and appropriate music for the eve
ning, from the rendering of Mr. Tony
Wons’ heart-touching poem (by the
way, this was the only attempt at
prosey verse, and the “ronde” part of
the club would be absent—never you
mind, little Texas, we appreciated and
loved your prose) to the hot sketch
put on by the Duncan sisters. Finally,
the evening left a good taste in every
body’s mouth by the dance at the Hut.

perience'^of‘”jesus when his parents
thought him lost, the story of the first
™'Not only do we see Mary through
the stories that she actually told, but
through the conversation of Jesus we
catch glimpses of the intimate com-
radship, the domestic touches for
which Mary is responsible. i he
Scripture which Jesus quoted at the
time of His temptation is probably
representative of Mary’s teaching.
Jesus reflects his interest and observa
tion of household affairs in many of
the figures which He uses—such^ as,
the leven which he likens to the King
dom of Heaven, the story of the two
sparrows, the women grinding at the
mill, and the candle lighted in the
house. “Lay not up for yourselves
treasures on earth where moth and
rust doth corrupt” — is a proot
of His mother’s domestic concern.
The figure of the cup in His rebuke
to the Scribes and Pharisees, the
story of the lost coin, the figure of
the children playing m the market
place are all reminiscent oi t^nrists
home life associations.
The second to the last time we see
Mary is the time when she, John, and
three others stood at the foot «
cross, at Jesus’ crucifixion. i here
the deep concern for His mother is
shown by the fact that probably un
til He had entrusted her to Johns
care. He restrained the intense agony
implied in his statement, “I thirst.’ _
The last appearance of Mary i!
in prayer with others before the
ascension of Christ.
Tradition says—but we have
actual proof of the fact-that Mary
lived eleven years with John and died
at the age of fifty-nine. _
Dr. Rondthaler’s closing remark
summarized the thought which he had
been developing during the course of
the discussion—that we may share a
greater joy and appreciation of Jesus
through a more sympathetic and closer
acquaintance with His mother.
The famous French apostle of
peace, Aristide Briand, former French
premier, died Monday, March 7 of a
heart attack. All of France was
stunned by his death three weeks be
fore his seventieth birthday. The
French nation will pay him her high
est honors in a national funeral to
be held Saturday afternoon at which
M. Tardieu, present Premier, will
deliver the primary oration.
This past week twenty-six men lost
their lives in storm havocs along the
Atlantic seaboard. Two scooners
were wrecked by a furious northwest
gale and driving snow. Coast Guard
Cutters have been sent out from
Maine to Florida but twenty men are
still missing.
Japan at last announces that she
seeks to end the muddle at Shanghai
and is eager to withdraw forces as
soon as she can with security for her
interests. Five of Japan’s banks are
already in financial difficulty caused
by the Sino-Japanese conflict and the
Chinese Boycott.
John Philip Sousa, the “March
King” died Sunday, March 6, from
heart attack. His body lay in ;
until Thursday in the band roor
the Marine Barracks. He was buried
in the Congressional Cemetery with
full military honors.
The whole south was visited Sun
day by a late blast of winter. It was
feared that fruits and vegetables were
severely damaged by the cold wave.
This coldness reached throughout the
southwest and northern most of the
southern states; by way of contrast
Florida temperatures ran from sixty
to seventy.
A minute grain of rice was carved
with infinite patience to represent a
bust of Pope Pius XI and was pre
sented to him by the Franciscan Sis
ters of Mary. This was carved by
a Chinese convert and is so small that
it must be looked at through a lens.
Another remarkable gift received by
him was a chasuble made of silken
cloth by the silk worms themselves.
When the silk worms began to spin
the cocoons they were prodded with

Books can, and do, do so much for
us, once we have a real love of them.
They bring us escape from the so-
called realities of life. They bring
escape, through romance, into the
mysteries of other people’s lives; for,
does not the story of “Tristan and
Isolde,” old as it is, still move us!
Do not the romances of Scott and
Stevenson and Cabell delight us and
free us from our own anxieties and
Books also bring us an escape by
enlarging our knowledge of different
parts of own own world, of the times
and of other races. Dorothy Can
field and Willa Cather reveal things
to us about ourselves of which we
never dreamed.
“Porgy” and “Scarlet Sister Mary”
give us an insight into negrO' life and
intelligence which is both humbling
and edifying. “The Woman of
Andros” is a view of Greek life as
seen by one of our contemporaries.
Knut Hamsun’s “Growth of the
Soil” presents a real picture of
Scandinavian life as the “Good
Earth” does of Oriental.
Then, to represent the spirit of a
period in which there is felt deep in
terest but of which there is little real
understanding — the Renaissance—
are Browning and Cellini.
There are also contemporary writ
ers who broaden our understanding
of the social life of which we are a
part. Of these, some of our best are:
Edith Wharton, Theodore Dreiser,
Aldons Huxley, H. G. Wells,
Bernard Shaw and John Galsworthy.
In reading we make contact with
some of the great personalities of
literature. Who, having learned
love such characters as Cyrano de
Bergerac, Sidney Carton, and Maggie
Tulliver, can ever wholly forget
them? To some people, indeed, these
great characters of literature are
real as anyone else they live with.
But perhaps the greatest of all the
things that books give us, is Beauty.
For beauty creates form from chaos—
it makes clear the patterns lying be
yond the tragedy of accident. By one
definition, beauty is the joy of find
ing common things significant because
of what they have meant to sensitive
One who learns to love an art in his
youth can never be unhappy. “To live
with great literature is not only
choose one’s own company but to
master one’s fate and to live among
the stars. ‘We who have loved the
stars so well, how can we fear the
night.’ ”
begin with, socially, physically, or
mentally, strive the hardest.
Decision and interest are entirely
different. The choice of vocation
may depend on the availability of
training, the money in it, the avail
ability of jobs, personal observance or
experience, family experience, and
group acceptance. A person is often
: interested in that thing in which
he feels weakest. He tries to compen
sate for his liability and make from it
an asset. A deaf man always insists
that he can hear. A social worker
probably has once been worried about
her own problems. To appease his
inner guilt a man becomes a heart
specialist, because, when he was a boy,
his little sister died of a heart attack
while he was taking care of her.
While he was not to blame he felt
responsible for her death.
Often people choose a particular
vocation merely to win the acceptance
of the group, and to prove to friends
that they are a success, socially and
in business.
Often a child follows a vocation
because he has identified himself with
one of his parents. If he thinks that
his father has not received due recog
nition, a son will adopt the, same pro
fession to avenge his father. Dr.
Gordon told of a girl who was pat
terning herself after her father, who
had deserted the family when she was
still a child. She also mentioned an
other girl who, at her mother’s death,
determined to become a musician. Un
fortunately she failed everything in a
music course ; it was only recently that
she could be persuaded to change to an
arts course, where she has shown morj
Therefore, in choosing a vocation
one has to take into consideration the
following factors: a desire to compen
sate for inadequacy; a need for
curity, money and respect; a desire to
show off and to avoid unpleasantness;
a symbol for some hidden desire. Dr.
Gordon closed her speech with these
effective rules; “First, decide what
you would like to do, then what you
think people expect you to do, and
then what you probably will do. Blend
everything together to satisfy your
dream ideal, your family ideal, and
your practical ideal.”
Dr. Gordon, during her brief three-
day visit at Salem, addressed the sen
ior and junior classes in groups, on
appropriate subjects and has lectured
to each section of physical education
on hygiene. In addition, she held
eral interviews with individual
dents, giving valuable advice on
cations, obtaining jobs and direction of
{A Hangover from
the Banquet RUARY 29th
I always had been a bit dippy—I
guess that’s why I went out for
Ijasketball. I’m a rotten plajxr, I’ll
admit, but I have my good points. I
always play my position; and do I
hear someone ask what that is? Sit
ting down I answer, and there is
none better. Where I am no one
else can ever be; I hold down my end
of the game good and firm. Nor do
I stir easily. Why, I could go a
whole game on my first wind. Then,
too, I watch the ball as well as any
man. Boy, oh boy. I’ve got this sub
playing down pat and I’ll bet I’ll be a
champion some day.
Yet there are some things about it
that give me a pain in the neck. I
get my suit all washed up and look
all spick and span—then I don’t get
to show it. I go to the game and sit
on hard benches that don’t even have
any cushions. I get a sore throat and
a cold waiting for something that
never does come. Nobody knows
how much practice it takes to be a
sub and especially a good one like
I overguard perfectly. Nobody in
school knows how to charge like I
do. I can block, tag, and box up
swell. Still I don’t get put in; I
guess we’ve just got a bum coach,
that’s all I know it could be.
