Wednesday ehapel began with the
reading of five poems written b;
Salem students. They were beau
tiful in thought and })lirasing, and
aiinost perfect in poetic form,
was delightful to know that
talent existed on the campus,
how pleasing it was that they should
be read on this first spring-like day !
Then came more poetry, not in
ver.se or rhyme, but in audible
rhythm, as Dr. Rondthaler delivered
a Lenten address. It was a speech
which defies recording in words, for
half its effectiveness lay in the lift
of his head and the gestures of his
hands. Long shall we remember the
fingers of Dr. Rondthaler, which im

In Person and Books
’n order to catch tlie'true significance of Dr. F'. Stanley Jones’

India since 1907, was elected Bishop of the M. E.
L Iun-eli in 1928 but resigned to continue his missionary |work.
"What we are trying to do,” says Dr. Stanley Jones, “is* to give
India Clirist and to let tliem interpret Him through their own genius
and life. If tlie East can show us something better than the Christ
f len we will sit at the feet of the I'last. One of the first things that
impels us as missionaries is a basic belief in men. The missionary
enterprise believes in people, apart from race, birth, and color. There
are no permanently inferior peoples. There are undeveloped races,
but there are untold possibilities in every human personality.”

“O Wind, Since Spring Has Come,
You Must Come From Behind”
The wind is quite an artist when
it comes to deciding, year in and
year out, century after century, sea
son upon season, the fate of the well
dressed woman. By this may be in-
fered that the wind is the creator of
all of our latest fashions (pun: Say
“latest fashions,” now say “ladies’
fashions.” Approximately the same
—now laugh). Patau and his F’reneh
compatriots who design frocks and
hats and shoes for all of the elite in
Hollywood and the four hundred in
New York are only employees of a
higher power—the four and fickle
winds of Heaven.
A long, long time ago, in fact when
the world was very young, even this
all powerful wind had to blow care
fully so as not to disarrange the
scanty leopard .skins that our fore
mothers called their wardrobes.
After that, however, it began to
cut around quite permiseously and to
whi]) the shirts and hats of the old
fashioned ladies into enormous sizes
to be a i)eri)etually rising wind, from
the ground up. It inflated the
heavily flounced petticoats into roun
ded balloons, and piled white curls
like snow on the to|)s of fashionable
Then it changed- It decided to
come at the civil war ladies from the
front. At this angle it filled out the
])oke bonnets and teased the ruffled
hooj) skirts of the young girls and
even skipped around in time to help
su])])ort the huge bustles on the other
side of their stiff backed mamas.
But, in time, it gi-ew tired of wasting
all of its energy on skirts. So in
the gay nineties, when the Flora
and the Gibson girls were
having their hey-day, the wind shift-
on again and began to
descend ujjon these beauties from
above. Their hair ]>uffed out in so
ur foreheads; and
when hats were called for, they were
wide and broad brimmed and cov-
])lumes- in order to keep
the down-current of wind from tam
pering with the long straight lines
And you know the slogan of today.
The wind must be coming from the
back.” O, what a changable fancy
this fashion dictator has! It sneaks
u]) behind us and tilts our hats into
a rakish, over-the eyebrows angle.
Thank goodness it doesn’t bother to
blow our dresses above our knees like
it did several years ago, but thank
the same goodness it cuts them off
a little higher than our ankles, and
keeps the lines ])retty close to our
figures (if school girls still have
This Spring wind may appear to
be satisfied for the present, and will
])robal)ly continue to blow against
our backs for the rest of the season.
But it will change again soon. And
this much you may de])end u])on:
Pretty soon, now, the wind will get
tired of working itself to death mak
ing u]) intricate new fall, and winter
and S])ring fashions and will burst
out into a fit of summery in])atience,
whipping off all of these sissy ruffles
and ])uff' sleeves and fly-away hats
from u.s, it will leave us astonished,
yet unashamed and unadorned in our
—bathing suits (all those who were
expecting birthday suits, go to the
foot of the class).
