Dr. Raymond Smith
Speaker At Vespers
Gives Poet’s Thoughts on
Subject of Prayer
Dr. Raymond Smith, leader of re
ligious education at the Centennary
Methodist Church and a former i"—-
ber of the Salem College Faculty,
guest speaker at Vespers on Sunday
night, November 19. The service
held in the Campus living roon
the Alice Clewell Building and Miss
Mary Sparser Absher had charge of
the worship program.
Dr. Smith stated that prayer
almost too great a subject for him
to speak upon in the short time allot
ted him. Therefore he let the poets,
both ancient and modern, speak on
the subject. After reading Henry
Emerson Fosdick’s “Meaning of Pray
er,’ Dr. Smith gave James Montgom
ery’s definition of prayer, contained
in a 17th century poem, as,
“Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire.
Hidden or expressed ...”
and also as,
“Prayer is the Christian’s vital
The folowing seledtiom expresses
Tennyson’s idea of prayer, as he gave
■■ in “Morte d’Arthur.”
“More things are wrought by prayer
Than this world dreams of. Where
fore, let thy voice
Rise like a fountain for me night and
For -vyhat are men better than sheep
That nourish a blind life within the
If, knowing God, they lift not hands
Both for themselves and those who
call them friend?
For so the whole round earth is
Bound by gold chains about the
feet of God.”
In “The Larger Prayer” by a mod
ern poet, man prayed first for light,
then for strength, then for faith and
peace. Finally, and God waited till
he prayed the larger prayer—he asked
for love—deep love to God and man.
Dr. Smith read further poems by
Max Eastman, Henry Van Dyke,
John Drinkwater, Hamlin Garland,
and Henry Kemp. He concluded with
one of Gilbert Chesterton’s poems,
one which takes a whole nation in
one which taakes a whole nation in
its grasp instead of an individual, aftd
the nation prays for the removal of
pride and for will and purpose and

s Entertain at
Dinner and Theatre
Seniors Are Honor Guests
Thursday evening, November 16,
le senior class—taking “ a tip from
the enticing sign on an enormous pur
ple trolley posted in Senior Hall—
met the Sophomores in the little din-
g room for dinner.
After the singing of grace “Praise
God from whom all blessings flow,”
the guests found their respectivf
places by attractive cards carrying
out the thanksgiving scheme of dec^
oration. For once the Seniors were
deprived of their exclusive position
at the head of the tables, for the
Sophomores graciously served as host-
At the end of the delicious three
course dinner, Nancy McNeely acted
as cheer-leader while the Sophomores
gave a peppy yell of fifteen rahs for
The invitation to be present at the
Carolina Theatre to see “The Torch
Singer” was ■ renewed and at exactly
o’clock two special trolley cars
to Salem Square to ride the
members of both classes “instate to
see the show” exactly as the original
invitation had stated.
Evidently there was an .existing
plot to break down the Senior dignity
by choosing the picture of “The Torch
Singer,” for it was so realistic and
touching that the seniors bniffltW

Other guests present were Miss
Grace I^awrence, Miss Katherine Rig-

Miss Anne Carroll
Students and Faculty
Prominent Authoress and
Critic Visits Salem
Last week Miss Anne Carroll
Moore of New York spoke to the
Salem studl(nt body. Miss Moore
is one of the best known critics of
children’s books. She is a lecturer, a
writer of children’s books, and head
of the New York public library.
Miss Moore wrote the delightfully
thrilling story of “Nicholas” and its
sequel “Nicholas and the Golden
Goose.” These two bo(>ks are very
popular among youngsters especially
" ose in New York who knew Nicho-
s in real life.
Miss Moore read from several new
books for children and told many in
teresting things she had done and seen
in Norway. One particularly inter
esting phase of her talk was the ex
planation of how she happened to have
the “trol” which she had with her.
This “trol” was a brown-wooden cha
racter shaped rather Ijke a bear. This
was a good luck companion.
Salem enjoyed having this distin
