WINSTON-SALEM, N. C., FRIDAY. MARCH 2, 1934.
Winston’s Ice Storm Plays
Havoc On Salem Campus
In Wake of Storm
Snow and Ice Bring Great
Beauty to Campus
King Winter just missed attending
the Sophomore Ball Saturday night
by a few minutes He brought his
snow-men as an extra treat, but one
which turned out disasterously. Sun
day morning found the ground cover
ed with ice and snow and trees bend
ing ice-laden brantlies. Sleet a]nd
rain continued to fall all day, so that
by night many trees began to crack
imder the strain. Electric wires sag
ged. The ice turned the campus into,
a crystal fairyland before destruc
tion began. Trees on lower campus
and especially on the square lost tops
and big limbs. Electric wire!
pulled down and the current Wf
for a while, causing a great many
shreiks from unsuspecting girls left
suddenly in the dark and deprived of
Eddie Cantor's humor. Later
thunder storm, with a great-deal of
lightning caused many to wonder if
the world were coming to an end. The
power plant over on the hill
brilliant flashes, at times a vivid
green. Street-cars, as long as they ran
caused green sparks to fly from the
Members of the faculty and student
body, as well as visitors to the campus,
had a hard time getting in and out.
Certain callers at Louisa Bitting had
mucli trouble getting their car turned
around back of Society, so they could
come out the driveway under the
arch, since the main street in front
of the otlier drive was blocked by
fallen trees and wires. It seems that
some Davidson boys who were visit
ing Clewell got stranded.
Monday the sun came out and melt
ed the ice rapidly. But that did not
help matters much in the way of re
pairing damaged lines. All telephone,
telegraph and electric wires were out
of commission. Small wonder when
one hears the story of two girls who
undertook to get back from Charlotte.
The trip consumed seven hours with
frequent stops to cut wires and cho]
away poles that obstructed the road
Monday night the college had dinner
at 5:30, because all electric current
was off. Miss Lawrence supplied the
school with candles, but their feeble
light did not lielp much. Study was
impossible, so many girls went to the
picture-sliow wliich was able to run on
its own power. The others had par
ties by candle-light and fire light.
Gentlemen were entertained in Bit
ting and in Clewell in the living-rooms
Tuesday Winston was able to con
nect up with Reynolds Private Pow
er, so lights were on in the dormitories,
to the sorrow of lazy people who did
not want to work. Telephone and
telegraph wires were still not work
ing. Winston was cut off entirely
from the outside world. The Ama
teur Radio Club of Winston held 24
hour service Sunday night and Mon
day with Charlotte, and thus kept
open the only outside connection.
This service was able only to take
care of death messages and impor
tant business transactions. The city
is grateful to this group of young
men for tlie helpful service which
DINING ROOM RULES
MUST BE ENFORCED
The following rules in the Salem
College handbook have been broken
by many of the students:
1. Neither food, dishes, silver nor
glasses may be carried from the

The following is the correct sche
Cafeteria Breakfast 7:30—8:15
Cafeteria Lunch 12:30—1:45

kitchen without my permission.
If at any time a girl is sick and
cannot come to a meal, a friend may
eet the meal for her by asking either
Miss I.awrence, Miss Rlggan or me
for permission. This must be the on
ly time when food is taken from the
dining room or kitchen.
Pictures Taken at Salem on
On February 22, the Home Morav
ian Church had a social get-together
for its-members. Bishop and Mrs.
Pfohl and others of the church greet
ed the guests as they arrived.
During the first part of the
ning, a patriotic picture, ‘‘Betsy
Boss,” was shown. This depicted
the life of the time of the Revolu
tionary War. Aside from the love
story of the heroine were scenes in
which Washington and his soldiers
appeared The Father of the Coun
try was shown talking to Betsy Ross
about the making of the first flag.
On her asking liow he conceived the
pattern he replied that the idea
to him as he looked through a
dow at the sky. The sunshine
streaming through the bars resembled
the stripes. Then he thought of the
stars that lay in the deep blue sky
of the night.
After this reel was shown, pic
tures taken at Salem at the Wash
ington Bioentennial were presented.
The shops along the main street were
seen, the arrival of First President
at the Salem Tavern, the prooesaion
at the college. Then glimpses were
given of the class day exercises of
the graduating class. Familiar faces
“ere seen among familiar places, but

trea, Mary Louise Mickey played.
Afterwards the Woman’s Auxiliary
served delicious cake, ice cream, and

blue, and white floated over the
heads of the loyal subjects who, pre

lively music furnished by a negro
orchestra. At the other end of the

Mrs. Yvonne Johnsen
Discusses German Art
Exhibit Here Delightfully
Described in Chapel
Mrs. Yvonne Johnson, who is
traveling with the Carl Schurz art
exhibit, gave an interesting lecture
Wednesday, Feb. 28, at Y. P. M. Mrs.
Johnson stated that the Carl Schurz
Foundation w'as begun in 1929 and
that in 1930 several American citi
zens gave money so that the work!
begun might be carried on.
By the exhibit the last fifty years
of modern German art are repre
sented. Modern art is deeply root-
classic art. In the early part
of the nineteenth century. Turner,
who had studied art in the conserva
tive art schools broke away from
the realm of reality and began what
is now known as impressionistic art.
Color was experimented with. It
broken up and not blended.
Several other artists took up Tur
ner’s work and formed the group
called Le Salon de Eefuses. Their
works made art naturalistic. To
fully appreciate its beauty it is
necessary to view it at a distance
lid as a whole.
German impressionistic art was
classical at first as well. In 184?
Max Leibermann began the Ger
man school. He, too, experimented
with color. In the exhibit etchings
are shown done in 1867 by Kollwitz,
who has a style of her own. Her
works are permeated by her interest
social problems and in war.
In the twentieth century an en
tirely new phase of art developed,
’ivided into several groups,
came the futurists who
painted, or tried to paint, pictures
showing motic|i. Onq‘, the Imost
famous of these is a picture entitled
Cabaret Scene ’ ’ which is a jumble
of furniture, people and confetti.
Next came cubism. It was begun
f a Spaniard whose works were
imposed entirely of cubes, triangles
and such geometric figures.
The expressionist school follows.
This is probably the greatest typ»
of German art. The painter gets
away from the actual portrayal of
nature and tries to paint an idea, a
thought, an emotion. One of the
pictures of this type is named
“City”. Instead of actually paint
ing a city the artist tries to give
a man’s reaction to the noise and
confusion thus presenting a picture
of a distorted city in which sorrow
is clearly depicted.
The abstract form of art is next.
This is the type that represents
years of searching which finally
forms itself into a composition which
may be compared to mflsic.. It is
a prophetic, visionary type.
The newest movement in Germany
the back-to-nature- art. This
need not be explained otherwise
than say that the wheel of art seems
' have made a complete turn and is
w back at its beginning.
