Salem Was Hostess To
Large Easter Groups
Alumnae and Guests From
Many States Attend
Moravian Service
Salem College was hostess during
the Easter Celebration to a larger
number of people than have been
present in several years. In the
dormitories there were eighty-five
guests, coming from all sections of
the United States.
The rising bell sounded at 4:15
A. M. and the guests had an early
breakfast at IrtS A. M. in the col
lege dining room. This breakfast
was typically Moravian, consisting
of sugar bread and coffee. The pro
cession formed in the dining room
and made its way through Main Hall
to the sidewalk immediately in front
of the building, where a space had
been roped off for tlie college guests.
The morning was beautiful and ad
ded a reverent impressiveness to the
worship in which everyone partici
pated, led by Bishop "Pfohl. The
services were concluded at 7:15 when
the combined bands assembled on
Salem Square and played chorales.
Mr. B. J. Pfohl, who has just com
jileted liis fifty-first year with the
liand, led tlie music.
The tlirong of people here for the
Moravian Services has been esti
mated at 25,000. The celebration
was broadcast, and reports have come
in from all parts of the United States
that many people in various sec
tions of the country distinctly heard

Bishop Pfohl.
Misses Willis and Ward
Present Final Recital
Talented Performers Render
Program With Artistic
On Monday night at 8:15 o’clock
Memorial Hall was the scene of the
first graduating recital of the yeai
wlien the Salem College School of
Musie presented Miss Millicent
Ward, soprano, of Concord,
Miss Elizabeth Willis, pianist, of
Salisbury. They were assisted by
Miss Dorothy Thompson, who
companied Miss Ward at the piano,
and by Dean Charles G. Vardell, Jr.,
who played the orchestral parts of
Miss Willis’ concerto on the organ,
Miss Ward, who received her de
gree in piano last year, has been a
pupil of Mr. Leslie Schofield for
several years. She opened the re
cital with a group of four numbers.
The mood of the first “Rendi 1’
sereno al Ciglio” by Handel (1685-
1759) was rather sad. In “Lascia-
temi Morire” by Monteverdi (1568-
16i;3) Miss Ward displayed tonal
power and ability to bring out
t'rasts. Her clear diction in ‘
raptured I Gaze” by Hopkinson
(1737-1791) was evident throughout
her performance. “liosalinda” a
pastoral by Veraeini had an attrac
tive piano accompaniment.
Miss Willis, who has been the pu
pil of Dean Vardell for the past four
years, played as her opening ni:
her “Prelude and F'ugue in C maji
(from “The Well Tempered Clavi
chord”) by Bach. In this selection
she brought out the themes of the-
ious voices very clearly. In “Rondo
in A Minor,” she showed understand
ing of Mozart’s style in beautiful
tonal work.
Miss Ward sang a second group
of five numbers: “Le Chemin de la
Lure” by Paulin; “Thesere exquise’
by Hahn, which had a beautiful
melody, and which Miss Ward in
terpreted with feeling; “Die Lotus-
blume” by Franz; “Kein Hans, keine
Heimat” by ]5rahms—a fast, amus
ing piece; and “Marehen” by
Miss Willis played the delightfully
impressionistic “Claire dc Lune” of
Debussy with much musical percep
tion. She gave the two Chopin num
bers most brilliant execution; “I’.tude
in G flat major, op. 10, No. 5” and
“Fantasie, op. -19.” Their mood*
•ied from langorous dreaminess
and voluptuousness to fiery and he-
ardor which Miss Willis inter
preted by her tone coloring, her use
of “rubato” and the pedal.
Miss Ward’s final group was per-

Select Cast and Chorus Pre
sent Entertainment
(Special to the Salemite)
Ever since this talk of depression
has been worrying people and the ef
fects of it have hurt their pocket
books, the Junior Class has been in
terested in learning what causes that.
Now they have gotten to the roi
the matter, and they know how the
“repression” can be ended. You have
noticed tlie broad grins that the
Juniors are wearing.? It is because
they know a secret that they expect
to impart to this school on Saturday
night, April 9, at seven o’clock. Be
in Memorial Hall to hear about it.
Since there was considerable e
pense involved in the investigatio
there will be an admission charge of
ten cents. President Williams has
charge of the affair,, which promises
to be the best entertainment on
campus in weeks.
There is peppy dialogue, composed
b}- Williams, Silversteen, and Court
ney, with a strong cast and a snappy
chorus of dancers. The hero is Joe
Walker, who is at first so much de
pressed by the unemployment situa
tion that he cannot see his way out
of the rut. When he falls in love
witli a beautiful girl from Kress’s, he
has to admit that he ean’t give her
anything but love. Just when things
seem at their worst, he learns to
smile. And they live happily

Ivy and Tree Planting
Occurred Wed. April 6th
Seniors Bestow Upon
School Ivy and Tree
M. M. Norman Presents Tree
Which Dr. Rondthaler
One of the most noteworthy events
in the history of the Senior Class,
took place Wednesday morning when
the ivy and the tree, which represent
the living memorials of the class and
serve in a unique way to link the
past with the present, were formally
presented to the college.
The first part of the meeting took
place in Memorial Hall when Miss
Mary Mitchell Norman, President
of the Senior Class, explained briefly
the significance of the occasion. Mrs.
Audrey Clore LeGrand, accompanied
at the piano by Miss Viola Tucker,
sang “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer.
The Seniors, wearing caps and
gowns, were followed by the Senior
Marshals, dressed in white with
yellow regalia, and the Sophomore
pages, wdio also wore white, to the
south wall of the Louisa Bitting
Building, where Miss Norman in be
half of the Senior Class presented
the Ivy. Dr. Rondthaler, speaking
for the school accepted.
The procession singing “Fairest
I.ord Jesus” marched to the east side
of the building where Miss Norman
presented the tree. In his acknowl
edgement of the memorial. Dr. Rond-
tlialer increased the impressive spirit
and the traditional feeling of the tree
planting ceremonial by a few re
marks concerning the tree. The tree,
which is a flowering poplar, is the
lineal descendant of aged and beau
tiful trees on the campus. Dr. Rond
thaler beautifully entered into the
point of view of the tree’s personal
ity and interpreted the event from
that standpoint.
It is significant that both the ivy
History Club Members
Favor N. D. Baker
Roosevelt Runs Baker Close
Second in Salem Presiden
tial Primary
“Who will be our next president?”
This question which is being asked
far and wide was answered in
minds of the students of the History
Club Tuesday evening.
Members of the club under the
direction and supervision of Miss
Ferguson held a mock convention to
discuss the issues and chances of
certain men being candidates in the
next election.
The party issues were discussed
by Miss Anna Preston.
Miss Mildred Hanes capably pre
sented Newton D. Baker, former
Secretary of War during President
Wilson’s presidency, for the 1932
presidential candidacy.
Miss H. McDonald showed tc
club how Sen. W. E. Borah, forcible
speaker and well liked man, is ready
to fight for the laboring man even
at the expense of the rich. Senator
Borah’s main trouble is the securing
of the Republican nomination,
cause with his successful career
senator, his untiring efforts to help
the masses, his outstanding wor'
chairman of Committee on Foreign
Relations, and with the Progressive
Party back of him, he would go far
in the election.
Calvin Coolidge, according tc
Eugenia Johnson, would have a pret
ty hard time in being re-elected be
cause he, while in office, did not
reach the expectations and hopes of
the people. He just escaped from
the White House before the “depres
sion” and he hopes to re-enter just
in time to see “the doors of prosper
ity swing wide.”
Mary Katherine Thorpe told the
club how Hoover who entered the
White House at a bad time, has done
all that anyone could expect under
such circumstances. It is bad, ac
cording to Miss Thorpe, to change
horses in the middle of a stream and
she feels confident that Hoover has
a good chance in being re-elected.
“Al Smith still has a chance” was
the point of Miss C. Braxton’s talk.
His religion. Miss Braxton thinks,
would not follow him in his career
if he were elected as president. Pro
hibition, which has the country astir,
really a minor issue and Miss
Braxton is confident that Al Smith
“although down is not out.”
Miss Isabelle Ferguson presented
Franklin D. Roosevelt, present Gov
ernor of New York State for the
Democratic presidential candidacy.
