OLD ALMA MATER
(Continued from Page Two.)
Eagerly, gladly our footsteps re
Sometime we fretted at wholesome
Lessons seemed hard and the days
Oh how we longed to be free as the
Drinking the sweetness of life to
But when the freedom came
We found if but a name.
Duty assumed more imperious
Yet, Alma Mater dear,
Ever thou seemedst near,
Smoothing directing and blessing
Hearken! from mountain, from hill
side and river.
Joyful the story the multitude tell.
Up from the homes where thy daugh
ters are reigning.
Plans enchanting in melody
Telling of duties done,
Telling of vict’ries won, - -
Oh, Alma Mater, the praises are
Thou didst foundations lay
In girlhood’s careless day.
Now for thy crowning a garland
Merrily, joyously tell out the story.
Earnestly, tenderly sing it once
Here in our hearts Alma Mater is
Thee will we cherish and love
Hail to the, S. F. A.!
Oh, may success alway.
Crown thee with blessing and hon
or and power
While over land and sea
Thy daughters cling to thee.
Laud thee and love thee to life’s
IN THE MIDST OF ROLL
Alma Mater, 1912
Words by Emma A. I,ehman
In the midst of rolling woodlands,
’Neath fair skies of blue,
Stands our noble Alma Mater,
Glorious to view
Lift the chorus, speed it onward,
Over vale and hill
Hail to thee our Alma Mater
Hail,! all hail to thee!
Let the choruses swell its anthem
Far and loud and long,
Salem College and her glory
Ever be our song.
Though from her our paths may
And we, distant roam.
Still abide the memories ever,
Of our college home.
Just think, girls, it won’t be long,
before w'e’Il be coming back on Foun
der’s Day. We shall be completely
graduated, having lived long and
much while we were in college.
Won’t it be fun? We’ll come back
and see who is doing what, and why.
We shall be classed as alumnae. That
sounds terribly high-class to me!
After all, four years is a very short
time to mean as much to us as it
does. I am sure that my stay here
will always mean so much to me that
even when my hat is a small lace
cap on the back of a scanty gray
knot, I shall stand and salute Salem,
particularly on Founder’s Day.
Here is another cause for salute!
Have you ever seen a college presi
dent and his wife take such a person
al interest in the girls as Dr. and
Mrs. Hondthaler take.^ We appre
ciate this interest more than we some-
To those new girls who have joined
us this semester—we intend to make
you one of us, we are glad you have
chosen Salem as your college, and we
wish you well in your work.
If you have never been to a Mo
ravian Love Feast, you have certain
ly missed something. My first one
inade me feel that in spite of our
personal differences, likes, dislikes,
and expressed opinions, we all are
bound together with love. I want
never to talk disparagingly about
anyone again. Wouldn’t it be grand
if all of us could feel the same way
all the time?
If you want to enjoy two or three
minutes tonight, start a conversation
with Mr. Shore. You won’t have to
do anything but start it; he’ll finish
it, and in a delightful manner!
Hasn’t this been a delightful day?

I put ray heart to school
In the world where men grow wise;
“Go out,” I said, “and learn the
Come back when you win a prize.”
My heart came back again:
“Now where is the prize?” I cried—
“The rule was false, and the prize
And the teacher’s name was Pride.”
I put my heart to school
And brooks run clear and cool,
In the woods where veeries sing
In the fields where wild flowers
“And why do you stay so long.
My heart, and where do you roam?”
The answer came with a laugh and
“I find this school is home.”

NOCTURNE IN A DESERT
Stuff of the moon
Runs on the lapping sand
Out to the longest shadows.
Under the curving willows,
And round the creep of the w'ave
Fluxions of yellow and dusk on the
Make a wide dreaming pansy of an
old pond in the night.
To TELL you that Chesterfield is the
only good cigarette . . . that the makers
of Chesterfield Cigarettes are the only ones
who can buy good tobaccos and manufac
ture cigarettes scientifically . . . would be
nothing short of foohsh.
For all tobacco is sold in open auctions
—where anyone can buy if he will pay the
price. Even the machines on which differ
ent cigarettes are made are alike.
This much, however, is true: By using
the right kinds of Turkish and Domestic to
baccos in just the right proportions ... by
blending and cross-blending them together
in the most careful way . . . we make Chest
erfield what smokers say it is ... a cigarette
that’s milder, that tastes better. Just try them.
