Salem Sororities Are Abandoned New Plans For Social Life Are To Be Formulated On Saturday morninp; in Chapel 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 significant. 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 swimming.? '^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!

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.
