Remodeled Dining Hall Opens Monday Night
Dr. Anscombe Discusses
Question Knowing God
Christians Must Form Ade
quate Conception of Deity
Dr. Francis C. Anscombe, in
chapel on Wednesday morning, Oc
tober 12, talked on the problem that
is the challenge of all Christians.
Taking his text from John, 1 i, Dr.
Anscombe showed that in knowing
Christ we know the Father.
Practically all Christians are like
Philip, who is the unconscious
spokesman of the human race. The
question of, “What is God like?”
is one that is asked by the most sim
ple children and tlie most profound
scientists and philosophers. A knowl
edge of God the Father is a deep-
seated need of mankind; this need
was not given to us by God merely
to tantalize us.
When Philip begged “Lord, shew
us the Father, and it sufficefch us,”
Jesus was surprised and disappoint
ed that Philip had not seen the
Father in Him. “Have I been so
long a time with you, and yet hast
thou not known me, Philip? He
that hath seen me hath seen the
When Jesus said, “If ye had
known me, ye should have known
my Father also,” obviously He could
not b^ speaking of the physical form
of God. The personal attributes are
neither important nor necessary to
a knowledge of the real nature of
God. What are His motives, pur
poses, ideals ? If we can discover
these then we will know the charac
ter of God.
In youth a childish conception
God is formed. But this concept
will not stand the scrutiny of in
creased powers of intellect, so it is a
never ceasing challenge to form an
adequate conception of God. No
one can give this to us. Dr. Anscombe
recommended books of a philosophi
cal nature which will guide the wai
to casting aside former opinions and
forming newer, more satisfactory
ones. This is not a challenge to be

In a .short talk Mary B. Williams
told the purpose and the pledge of
tile Association. She said that
each girl stood with her candle she
was reminded of the silent vow
had made, to try to understand Jesus

•Tcsus loved to be close to nature and
to be alone in a garden or among
the mountains and trees. Here at
.Salem every one has an opportunity
to follow Him and to try to be more
like Him.
After Miss Williams’ talk and her
explanation of the greeting and wel
come symbolized in the lighting of
the candles, the installation service
was completed by the Y. W. C. A.

Vardell Tells History,
Mechanism of Organ
Tope of Musical Instruments’
Subject of Music Hour Talk
Mr. Vardell chose “The Pope of
Musical Instruments” for the sub
ject of his second talk in music Hour
Thursday afternoon. He explained
that the title was not original, that
Charles Maria Widor, eminent or-
ganist-composer very aptly called
the organ the pope of the instru
ments. The organ is not one instru
ment but many instruments, since
every pipe is a separate instrument.
Even musical people think that the
pipes one sees are all of the organ,
but there are between 15,00 and
2,000 pipes on the organ in Mem
orial Hall. The organ breathes the
atmosphere of religion, the church,
power, and Widor has correctly
named it, the Pope.
Mr. Vardell traced the history of
the development of the organ, from
the pipes of pan in mythology, the
clay model of Carthage, and the hy
draulic, which in appearance ap
proached the modern organ. In the
eleventh century stops were invent
ed, and gradually other mechanismc
were added, until by the seventeenth
century was, in a way, a perfected
instrument. It was ready for the
masterpieces of Bach.
The significance of the organ is
that one person can bring under con
trol many degrees lof power and
tone coloring. The real function of
the organ is to be an organ, not to
To be a successful organist one
must (1) be a good pianist; (2)
have a good bodily frame; (3) be
deft, (4.) have adaptability, (6) be
a musician and a fluent sight reader.
The opportunities of an organist
are not as many as there used to be,
but there is always a steady demand
for good church organists, and there
is a slight opening for radio organ-

Salemite Staff Hears
Journalism Instructors
Mr. Perry Outlines Year’s
Newspaper Course in
Is your attention caught at the
mere idea of personal interest?
Quite naturally it is, and that is
why the first meeting of the year
held by the Salemite staff casts such
a direct light upon the students of
On Wednesday night at seven
o’clock, in the Recreation Room of
the Louisa Bitting building, the
members of the Salemite staff had
as guest at their first meeting Mr.
W. D. Perry, instructor in Journal
ism at the Reynolds High School.
After the business part of the meet
ing had been completed, he was in
troduced by Miss Josephine Court
ney, Editor-in-Chief of the Salemite.
Mr. Perry is not only a delightfully
entertaining talker, but also a well-
informed critic in the field of journ
alism. He began with the primary
objective in journalism, which is
close observance. This applies to
surroundings, conversation, and lit
tle everyday occurrences, as well as
dramatic incidents. The importance
of printing an abundance of names
in the paper was stressed as an
asset to make the paper popular.
Mr. Perry divided his talk from
this point into three divisions, the
first being the discussion of leads.
Since leads attract the attention, it
is necessary that they interest the
reader at the very beginning. There
are many different types of leads,
the most common of which are: the
summary, the question, the emphatic
statement, the verse lead, the direct
quotation, the informal tone, the
golden text or keynote lead, the
proper name, the definite number,
the prepositional phrase, the noun
clause, and the temporal clause. The
lead, which is a short summary of
what is to follow, is made attractive
by variety. Leads should not be
over seven lines long.
The second part of Mr. Perry’s
talk concerned headlines. The head
lines play vividly on the imagina-

Picnicker Confesses
Overeating Thursday
Enjoys Delicious Supper on
Oh, what bliss to stretch one’s el
bows and wave one’s fork about in
airy gestures without jabbing some
unfortunate soul in some part of her
anatomy. No one seriously objects
to eating in the Wee Blue Inn. Al
though its really quite an adventure,
there’s nothing like having a whole
square mill in which to spread one’s
goods and chatter.
Can it be that any reader was as
piggy as the writer and went back
for a second helping? As a provider.
Miss Stockton is undoubtedly the
best yet. If the freshmen just
v/ouldn’t grow!
It was a great idea in the first
place. In the second place, there
never was such a time, such a place,
and such atmosphere. There is
probably such a thing as speechless
ness and forgetfulness of self when
in the presence of great beauty, but
the luminous moonlight surrounding?

on anyone’s appetite. Can you blame

Since Wednesday, October 15 stu
dents and faculty have been crowd
ed into the Wee Blue Inn and the
day students’ rooms in South Hall
for their three daily meals. Cafeteria
breakfasts were impossible, and
table etiquette was difficult. The
excellent management of the dietic
ian, Miss Stockton, did not allow
service and menus to fall below their
former standard, though the emerg
ency was hard to meet.
The disastrous fall of the ceilin(>-
was caused by damp weather and
the hc.ating of the building, which
cracked the plaster in the old build
ing. More reliable materials of
stone board now replace the former
ceiling. The entire dining hall i‘
renovated, with walls fre.shly can
vassed and papered in light tan. Al
though the accident was most un
fortunate, the “new” dining-room is
a pleasure.
The I. R. S. banquet is an an.swer
to many requests for “another form
al dinner.” So successful was the
last one that students are clamoring
for another.

Y.M.C.A. Celebration
“Youth Looks Forward”
Subject of Dinner
“With characteristicly Charles

seaport. “I would have given much

Tlie event, held on October 11,
was part of the world-wide celebra
tion of the one hundred eleventh an
niversary of the birthday of Sir
George Wiliams of England, foun
der of the Y. M. C. A. The cele
bration at Charleston was particular
ly significant, since it was in that
city that in 1854 the Christian As
sociation was founded on the Ameri
can continent.
At the banquet in the Y. M. C. A.
hall Dr. Rondthaler was the guest
speaker. The Charlestonian feeling
of hereditary responsibility, which
appealed to the speaker’s innate
sense of the fitness of things, was
shown in the calling of the first
Y. M. C. A. roll of the city. Tliis
eighty-year old roll was answered
by lineal descendants of each of the
members. Dr. Rondthaler spoke on
the subject “Youth Looks Forward,
Not Backward.”
Among congratulations and mani
festations of interest was a telegram
of per.sonal greetings from Presi
dent Hoover.
On Friday Dr. Rondthaler made a
talk to the Y. M. C. A. at Chapel
Hill for a celebration of this same
