Anna Preston Passes
Chewing Gum at Y.P.M.
Has Visited Many Alumnae
During Travels in “Solomon’’
U’liile everybody in the audierw
contentedly ;ind energetically smacl
ed a chiclet of gum, Anna I’restc
gave one of her famous relaxation
talks to all of Salem except tlie fa(
ulty and the units of Mr. Ritter
and -Miss Stockton’s efficiency m;
chinery. By invitation of the Stu
dent Self-Government Assoeiationj
which had chosen Wednesday of Stu
dent Week for their particular day
Anna passed around chewing guir
and proceeded to tell how much fun
it is to be a Salem girl and to know
other Salem girls of all ages, kinds,
At the peak of her talk. Dr. llond-
thaler broke into the meeting and at
tracted all til attention with the fol
lowing announcement; “The faculty
liave decided to lengthen your spring
vacation by one day. Classes will
end with the last class on Wednes
day, April 12, and will be resumed
on Thursday, April 20 at nine
o’clock.” He added the gracious re
mark tliat he w'as happy that the sug
gestion of such a change had come
from the faculty and not from the
students, signifying the sympathetic
relationship between students and
faculty. So welcome was the an
nouncement that he was invited to
remain, but declined the invitation
when chewing gum was thrust at
Anna told of her experience with
Skipp3', the first car she wore out
in service, and Solomon (so named
because it goes after women—and
gets them), which is now muddy
from its first week of service. From
snow covered mountains around
Asheville to storm-stricken areas in
Tennessee slie has traveled, visiting
girls who are interested in Salem,
organizing chapters of the Salem
Alumnae Association, and calling on
Salem alumnae. Siie has talked with
Mrs. Alice Couneill, the delightful,
(■entury-old alumna in Hickory, and
with Mrs. Ada Horton, the second
oldest living alumna, who lives in
Happy Valley near I.enoir and who
dotes on the dear past at Salem. It
seems that Anna has a weakness for
old alumnae, for she discussed six
of tliem who were past sixty.
With no oratorical division, even
so mucli as an “ahem” Anna went
from old alumnae to girls who fin-
ished Salem within the last three
or four years, telling interesting and
welcome news of what they are do
ing. Many of tliem are teaching
sclsool, some of them are married,
and tile individual ones are working
in offices reporting for newspapers,
and working in department stores.
A job she gave each girl to do
during P’aster holidays. “Go to see
some Salem alumna who lives near
your home, and then come back and
tell' us all about it.”

Current Magazines and
Salem Lambda Chapter of Alpht
Chi Alpha, national journalistic so
rority ,had charge of a chapel pro
gram on Thursday morning that was
ited to current literature. Doro-
Heidenreich, the president, pre
sided, opening the program with apt
remarks concerning the purpose of
the sorority. She told how many
now famous writers, such as Zona
Gale and Edna St. Vincent Millav,
members of Alpha Chi Alpha.
The purpose of the sorority is to fos-
r iournalism and creative writing.
Elinor Phillips, a member of the
rority, gave an interesting talk on
agazines. She began with ques-
ms: Do you know that influenza
both negative and affirmative? Do
m know why Lord Dunsany’s
brother is named the Honorable Reg-
lald, Alegmer Plunketh Ernie Erie
Drax? Do you know that George
B. Shaw says, “People always get

Dr. Smith Compares
Mr. Bryant Sings Twenty-
Third Psalm at Vespers
At Vespers, Sunday evening. Dr.
linnie Smith spoke on “The Well-
Rounded Young Christian Woman
the College Campus.” Her talk
s preceded by a prelude by Doro
thy Thompson and a prayer by Miss
Lawrence. Mrs. Rondthaler pre-
iided, reading the scripture from
[lomans, 12, after which she intro
duced Dr. Smith. The speaker com
pared college life with community
:e in three ways. The first com-
irison concerned the similarity of
cupations. In her community life,
woman is a home-maker or a pro
fessional worker; in college, her pri
mary work is gaining an education
through study. In both stations of
life these occupations give one les-
in honesty, contentment, and
self-control, if the worker goes about
her task with a religious spirit. The
■ond comparison was related to the
neighbors of a young Christian wom-
‘ 1 a community and on a college
campus. In the community, a young
woman has c,bliga tions to make
friends with her neighbors and to
help them. As a college student,
she is responsible for lonely girls.
The third comparison delt with the
opportunities of service of the col
lege and community woman. In
both places, a young Christian wom
an help in civic, social, and in
tellectual welfare, giving sj'mpa-
th.etically with a willing heart. The
ipeaker encouraged meditations and
self-analysis among young Christian
women. She closed her inspiring
talk with a message from the Chris-
Psalm, fostering young Chris
tians to take Christ as their Model
n all the.'r work through life.
Mr. Kenneth Bryant beautifully
sang “The Lord Is My Shepherd,”
iter which Miss Elizabeth Lily
closed the Vesper program with a
Student Week Proves

grams in Chapel
The first Student Week at
Salem began on IMonday, April 3,
and continued until Saturday, 8. As
a clever poster in Main Hall an
nounced, it was a week when stu
dent organizations took charge of all
formalities and made of them what
they would, presenting their pur
poses and achievements to the stu

lowed to participate, were merely on
Some results of Student Week
were pleasing, though not planned
for. Chief among them was the es
tablishment of the Chewing- Gum
Chapel by Anna Preston in her talk
on Wednesday morning. Talent for
public speaking and acting was dis
covered among the students, while
the faculty showed a bit of shyness
On Tuesday morning the Y. W.
C. A., I. R. S., and May Day Com
mittee presented a chapel program,
with Mary B. Williams presiding.
After Dr. Rondthaler had feebly
made an announcement, the program

B. Williams’ solo, “I Would Be
” concluded the Y. W. C. A.’s
