Miss Mary Sample, President of the
Pan-Htlknie Association, made the
following announcement;
“The Pan-Hellenic Association,
whicli is composed of all members of
each sorority at Salem, wishes to
make the following statement:
At a meeting- on May 17, 1933,
the motion to abolish sororities at
the end of this school year was made
and carried. In discussing and
passing the motion the following
points were considered,
(1) That Salem is much too
small a school for local sororities.
(2) That sororities cause un
necessary feelings between sorority
girls and non-sorority girls.
(3) That the expense is at pres
ent unnecessary.
• (4) That sororities impair a
school spirit whicli could be more
Suggestions for plans for social
life on the campus have been made
by the Pan-Hcllenic Association and
are to be submitted to I. R. S. and
the President’s Forum. These sug
gestions will be carefully consid
ered and will be presented to the
Student Body at a later date.

Plans For Summer
Is Vesper Subject
Miss Mary Louise Mickey
Speaks to Y. W. C. A.
Last Sunday night at Vespers
Miss Mary Louise Mickey spoke on
“Looking Forward to Summer.”
First of all, she said, the days just
preceding vacation are really the
most exciting. We are making all
our plans for the coming summer
then. Wc plan to rest and hav
good time, but we sometime.s forget
that in summer we have others to
consider besides ourselves. All win
ter we have lived more or less by
schedule with only our small amount
of spare time to take care of. When
we go home we must think of our
families. We will have to readjust
our habits and learn how to get back
“into the swing of tilings.” Summer
is the time to show our families that
we have made the best of the oppor
tunities they have made possible for
us. Our pcrsonalitils will be
ehangcd, our characters improved,
and wr will have a chance to show
Ihem our progress.
Summer brings also a reunion with
our friends. New intimacies will
sjiring up. We will make new ac
quaintances, and have new interests.
Onr understanding will be deeper,
and we can show our friends how
:'ollege has helped us. They will
have had new experiences and they
will have new interests. We must
become readjusted to our friends.
Miss Mickey said that it would
take us some time to catch u]i on all
the town news. Nine months is a
long time to be practically isolated
in another community and we lose
church, our clubs, and other organi
zations. We can make our town real
ize that an edueatit n is not useless.
There are always things that can he
done for the community. Why can’t
a college girl help fix'up the town
tennis court, plan camping trips, or
take tlu' neighborhood children in
'^riie Seniors face a rather differ
ent problem. They are entering into
life, 'I’licy must make use of the
education they have received. The
Seniors of this year must prepare to
face disappointment. Jobs are not
plentiful, but there is nothing to pre
vent a college girl from offering her
services on a non-pay job.
Vacation offers opportunities of
travel to some girls. The World’s
Fair, the beach, the mountains all
beckon to summer vacationers. Here
we arc given a chance to shine. A
college girl is somehow always rec
ognized. Her attitude is noticed.
Let’s put cn our best personalities
for Salem.
Dunng vacation we can catch up
“Cotton Pickaninny Book”
Is Distributed To Students
Year Book Dedicated to
Mrs. Rondthaler
The “Cotton Pickaninny Book,”
one of the most original, attractive
annuals ever published at Salem,
has, after much anticipation on the
part of the students, been presented.
This year, the annual was dedicated
to Mrs. Howard C. Rondthaler.
The idea of the “Cotton Picka
ninny Book” is cleverly carried out
in the art theme, and the use of cot
ton paper for inserts. The covers
are fashioned of natural-colored, cot
ton fabric, with brown cotton balls
imprinted on the outside.
This year’s annual shows capable
management and excellent co-oper
ation of the editor-in-chief, business
manager, and their staffs. Congratu
lations, Hall and Brinkley!

Carolina Theatre, Dr. George W.
Carver, noted Negro scientist from
Tuskegec, Alabama, spoke to a full
house. The speaker was brought
here by the Y. M. C. A. Dr. Car-
started his talk with a discussion

Dr. Carver, in taking an imagin-

veral passages from the Bible, one

Three Clothing Classes
Present Exhibition
New Type Chapel Program
Is Initiated
During expanded chapel Wednes
day morning the clothing classes of
under the direction of Mrs. F,.
Meinung, sponsored a fashion show
the Home Economics Department,
of clothes, made by the members of
those classes. These girls have had
either one, two, or three semesters of
sewing. Besides revealing the cap-
ablity of the girls in their domestic
ability, the modeling revealed the
popularity of cotton summer clothes,
and the reasonable cost of the ma-
The first group of clothes which
was displayed was blouses. Susan
Rawlings entered wearing a brown
and yellow print blouse, very attrac-
with round neck and ruff sleeves.
Mary Nelson Anderson also modeled
a print blouse together with a blue
len ,skirt which she had made.
The next group was cotton and
wool dresses for school and street

play in a green, pique, two-piece
fitted in at the waist, and hav
ing very becoming lines. Next came
Martha Schlcgel, also attired in
green, in the form of a print school

time it was a plaid material. Mary
Sample broke the run of cotton

lemble of cotton and wool. Betty

Mr. Nat Crews Explains
System of Government
North Carolina Legislator
Speaks to Young
On Thursday night at the dinner
meeting of the Young Democrats,
Mr. Nat S. Crews, a F'orsyth Coun
ty member of the North Carolina
House of Representatives, discussed
and explained the system of govern
ment in .North Carolina. A short
resume of his interesting lecture is:
The North Carolina Government
is divided into three departments,
the Executive Department, The Ju
dicial Department, and The Legi.sla-
tive Department. The latter De
partment is composed of the Senate,
iposed of 50 Senators, and the
use of Rpresentatives, composed
of 120 men representing the 100
•ounties. This General Assembly
meets, by Constitutional law, for two
months every two years. The last
Assembly, however, was in session
months. The Assembly meets
every day during its session and is
charge of a Speaker who recog-
zes legislators wishing to present
bills and refers bills to committees.
Committees are very important.
Each member of the Assembly is on
ir more. Men from every part of
the state and representing every vo
cation imaginable are present, so
there is, of necessity, quite a diver-
of bills. Each bill takes at least
forty minutes to pass. It has to be
passed three time.s, sent to the Sen
ate where it is referred to a Com
mittee, sent back fo.r reaction, and
then ratified and enrolled. At this
past session there were 1700 bills
introduced, every member introduc
ing at least one, and one member as
as 38. The most important
were The Revenue Bill and
The Education Bill. It is the duty
of The House of Representatives to
the revenue for the State. This
83 millions were appropriated
for education, payment of bonds,
