Music Furnished by Noted
Orchestra for Tea Dance
One of the most thoroughly enjoy
able social occasions of the year took
place on last Monday afternoon when
the Junior class entertained the Sen
iors at a tea dance. The Forsyth
Country Club, at which this event
was held, was beautifully decorated
with a variety of lovely spring gar
den flowers. In the entrance hall
were baskets of yellow tulips and
white syringia, in accordance
the college colors. Receiving the
guests were Miss Mary B. Willi
president of the Junior class. Miss
Mary Mitchell Norman, Senior pres
ident, Miss Helen Fuller and Mr.
Roy J. Campbell, class advisers.
Miss Grace Lawrence and Miss
Katherine Riggan.
As they arrived, the girls (and Dr.
Rondthaler who was an honor guest)
were invited into the club dining
room, which was decorated in the
Senior colors, red and white, with
dogwood and table centerpieces of
Indian pinks. Here two courses of
freshments were served which
eluded salad, sandwiches, tea,
and cake.
The wliole affair was made most
especially delightful by the music
furnished by Paul Graham and his
Crackers, a noted dance orchestra
well known through the eastern
United States. Having finished
their tea, the guests proceeded to the
living room where dancing was en
joyed. Many request numbers were
rendered and also an original com
position by a member of the orchestra
Present Varied Program of
Solo and Duo Numbers
On last Monday, May 2, Miss Nell
Cooke and Miss Edith Fulp, seniors
in Public School Music, gave
joint piano recital in Memorial Hall.
Both of them have studied under
Miss Laura Jones for the past four
The program was opened by Mo
zart’s “Sonata in C Major,” a com
position arranged for two pianos
In the first movement, “Allegro,’
both Miss Cooke and Miss F’ulp
showed good technical training
while in the second movement, “An
dante Cantabile,” they brought out
the beautiful singing quality of this
movement. The sonata ended
an “Allegretto Donazioso,” in which
the difficult passages were played
with ease by the two performers.
Miss Fulp, as the opening number
of her first solo group, played Schu-
bert-Lisz’t “Du Bist die Rah,’
a selection in which a beautiful mel
ody was expressed with rich harmo
nies. Quite in contrast to the peace
ful, Schubert-Liszt composition

plies, suggestion boxes have
been placed in all the buildings.
This is our big chance to take
advantage of our part in the

May Day Festival At
tracts Large Crowds
Entertaining F'eatures For
I. R. S. Houseparty
The outdoor chapel held on the
campus in front of the president’s
home began the May Day celebration
on last Saturday. With the student
body were their guests of the house-
party, which lasted the entire week
end. Every member of the audience,
wearing a pansy, stood in line and
heard Dr. Rondthaler deliver an im
pressive talk on “Trees.”
While the students were forced to
go to classes, I. R. S. took the house-
party guests for a ride through the
city, returning in time for lunch.
The May Day Festival was the
outstanding event of the day. Large
crowds of people watched the event
from the hill on the lower campus.
I though the weather was not the
favorable for a May Day, there
no rain, and the scene was beau
tiful. To the accompaniment of an
orchestra the May court walked down
the path and took their places on the
steps leading to the throne. Dressed
lace of pastel shades and carrying-
dainty tulle parasols and wrist cor
sages, they well represented the
beauty of Salem. The attendants

Billy Philpott, Margaret Smith, Ruth
McLeod, Virginia Bailey, Rachel
Bray, Bet Miller, Nina Hoffman,
and Bebe Hyde. Carrye Braxton
was maid-of-honor. Last came Anna
Preston, Queen of the May, who wore
a white satin dress with a long train.
When the maid of honor placed the
crown of flowers on her head, she
charmingly ruled over the court.
With the May Court as a background
the pageant was presented. It was
a colonial play with George Wash
ington as the hero and a dainty little
girl as the heroine. The plot was in
terspersed with dances and drills in
Following the festival, a picnic
supper, which had to be carried from
the campus to the dining hall, was

Lecture On Psychology
At This Week’s Y. P.M.
Dr. Gordon Urges Students
Not to Fear Examinations
This week Dr. Faith Gordon, psy
chiatrist for Salem College, spent
several days here conducting group
lectures and discussions, personal
conferences, and a talk to the stu
dent body. Because her several
visits each year are helpful and fill
a real need in the college, she is al
ways welcome.
Anticipating examination time,
which is not far away, she chose for
the subject of her Y. P. M. talk the
psychology of fear. In an interest
ing manner and with the clearness
with which she is capable of pre
senting a subject with many scien
tific terms, she told how fears begin,
the effects of fear, and how to get
rid of it. She spoke of anxiety fears,
which harass many women until they
are unbearably irritable—worrying
about shiny noses, wondering if they
turned out the lights, and perplex
ing their minds with a dozen useless
anxieties. These worries, which are
•ely habits, can make one very un
happy and should be overcome. The
situation fears are harder to over-
because their causes are more
difficult to trace. Among them are
the fears of talking in public, of
writing, of driving a car, or swim-
‘Why do you have these fears?”
she asked, and analyzed the causes
