twenty-five years of service given
by Dr. and Mrs. Howard E. Eond-

Home Moravian Sunday School is
sponsoring a movement to raise a ten
thousand dollar library fund for the
two institutions. In this way these
one hundred and fifty members of
the Bible Class wish to express their
appreeiatioft, and to signalize
this quarter-century of devoted and
self-sacrificing effort in religious
and community service.

Water Safety Is Im-
Raymond Eaton Inspires
Life Savers to Protect
To swim or not to swim—that is
not the question. Even non-swimmers,
and certainly, those interested in the
sport, would have received inspira
tion and benefit from the talk made
last Wednesday night by Mr. Ray
mond Eaton, a Red Cross Examiner’s
Examiner, to the class in Life Saving
methods which he was instructing.
Mr. Eaton, originally from Washing
ton, D. C., now travels for the Red
Cross, ali over the Atlantic Coast
territory, from Wa.shington to Flori
da, checking up on old Life Savers
and giving tests to new applicants.
He explained the new drive which is
being put on by the Red Cross to
pass as many I^ife Savers as possible
before this summer comes so that
there will be a sufficient number to
guarantee one Life Saver to every
camping trip, house party, and fishing
excursion that starts out. If this can
be achieved, a great many useless
deaths caused by accidents in holiday
waters will be avoided.
In view of the very large number of
Junior and Senior Life Savers and
Examiners now in the United States,
and the steady multiplication of this
number, Mr. Eaton called attention to
the man who first took an interest in
preserving safety by means of educat
ing the syimmers. This man started
oiif absolutely alone, to work up an
interest in Life Saving Courses in
America, and to promote the passing
of tests and instruction of swimmers
along this line. His name is Commo
dore Longfellow. That was ten years
ago. He has certainly succeeded in
the marvellous work which he chose
for himself, and not only has he suc
ceeded, but he has started something
which will continue to grow beyond
the bounds of his own imagination.
Commodore Longfellow, Red Cross
Life Saver No. 1 in the United States,
is still with the service, travelling in
the west, conducting classes and pass
ing tests. He is as active in the wat
er now, though he weighs over two
hundred pounds, as he was ten years
The first rule to be learned by
swimmers is that of personal safety.
To be careful with one's own person
when in the water is the most impor
tant thing to be learned. By looking
out for one’s self, the life of another
person, (the one who would have to
rescue you if you drowned), is also
being .safeguarded. Never swim
alone! . Always take along some
friend who can help you yell if you
get in distress, or to whom you your
self may have to lend a hand. As
Mr. Eaton said, “Two voices are loud
er than one to yell for help—two
pairs of eyes are better than one in
looking out for difficulties, and cer-

NEGRO SHOW IS
The entertainment which the Sen
iors sponsored last night at the hut
was one of the best and most enjoy
able of the year. At nine o’clock a
large majority of the students and
faculty gathered to see a variety show
presented by the Negro help on the
Salem campus. The performers did
their work well, enjoyed doing it, and
spent much time and work in practice.
Salem is indebted to them for a de
The first part of the program con
sisted of the Negro National Anthem
sung by the entire group, a talk on
Negro poetry, a recitation of Lawrence
Diuibar’s, “In the Morning,” a dance
by two small children, musical num
bers by a mother and three sons,
piano solos, mandolin solos, an elab
orate dance number with Conrad tak
ing the lead, supported by a girls’
chorus, and numbers by a ragtime
quartet. The second part of the pro
gram consisted entirely of Negro
spirituals sung by groups and indi
The Seniors feel that this entertain
ment should be an annual event. They
appreciate the cooperation of the Ne
gro help and assure them that every
one present enjoyed the performance.

Mrs. Milner Makes
Dean of Guilford Talks on
Mrs. Milner of Guilford College was
the speaker at Y. P. M. on Wednes
day. The subject of her talk was:
“The Art of Growing Up.”
Adolescence Is a period of transi
tion. At the beginning of this period
girls are expected to lie absolutely
obedient, but by the end of this time,
they should be largely independent.
There is also a change from the feel
ing of complete security. In early ad
olescence, girls are interested only in
girls, and boys, in boys. By the time
a girl is eighteen, she should be in
terested in boys. If she isn’t, it
shows that she is not emotionally
When a child is born, the mother is
the center of emotional life. At the
age of six, he should be independent.
Failures to be properly psychological
ly weaned are shown in various ways.
One_of these is by infantile behavior,
such as crying or kicking for some
thing that one wants. Some girls de
sire special attention, and in order
to do this she affects some illness or
defect, such as loss of voice. Another
way this is demonstrated is by resis
tance to authority.
The father should play a definite
part in a girl’s life from the time she
is fifteen until she is eighteen. How
ever, if a girl does not get rid of a
“father fixation,” bad results nearly
Girls should have an independence
of choice in regard to their problems,
but they should take tlie consequences
when they make a mistake.
Lack of psychologlval weaning is
shown by imagination, and also by
accepting the opinions of others.
If a girl has learned to act inde
pendently and think clearly, she has
di.scovered the art of growing up.

MUSICAL PROGRAM IN
Salem College is, this week, paying
special tribute to music by a series
of musical programs which are being
presented in chapel. All of the num
bers on the programs are composi
tions of composers born in the month
of May, so that we are honoring the
anniversaries of many great musicians.
A few of these composers are Brahms,
Elxciting Plans for Saturday
If we rearrange the letters in the
word which means the most to us down
deep in our hearts, that is Salem, we
get another word which mean almost
as much or perhaps a little more at
times, that being Males. One of the
times when males will mean a great
deal to us will be Saturday night at
eight o’clock in the hut, when those
rearranged letters will show what the
new meaning of Salem can do.
Following George Stone’s bold an
nouncement in chapel last Thursday,
we have heard a few more definite
plans relating to this “Masculine
Party,” or rather this party to be
given by the masculine to the fem
inine element of Salem. As members
of the latter element, we wish to ex
press our appreciation and anticipa
tion of the event. There are rumors
that several prominent girls on the.
campus have been invited to lead the
party. Perhaps that is the reason for
Georgia’s recently picking herself an
arm bouquet of mountain laurel, and
for Bushie’s refusing to pt her curly
hair too wet in the swimming pool.
Several others have started their
primping early too, so we won’t be
surprised to see our campus queens in
full bloom on the big night. Not that
the girls will go to the hut with the
express Idea or especial ambition of
seeing the campus .'“queens^—what
they will be looking for will be the
kings of Spring who are acting as
hosts. And will they be found? Lit-!
erally everywhere, in droves, under 1
stoves, behind groves—^any where they
can hide themselves from the mighty
girl-rush, which is to take place May
■ This year has been noted 4or its
wealth of novel entertainments, all
of Which were huge successes. First
came the Sophomore “Queen-Contest”
Ball, presided over by Queen Vest
and King Campbell. Then the Junior

which kept people laughing (in glee
and in sympathy with the actors) for-
weeks after it. Last night the senior
Black Face Minstrel! And here we
have the men of the faculty capping
the climax, chopping the cucumbers,
and making ready to make Hey!
Hey! tomorrow night in honor of the
girls in school.
From now on the men on the campus
will take their places all ungrudged,
first in grade-books, first in the cafe
teria line, first in the hearts of their
country women! The first “first”
will be one way for the women teach
ers to thank the boys; the second
“first” comes from the gluttonous
girls themselves who have heretofore
been a little “pushy” toward the men'
where dinner was concerned. But the'
last “first” comes from one and all—■
big and small—may we say we’re
ready to fall I

and Miss Margaret Schwarze.
On Saturday night. May 19th, the
Juniors of Salem Academy will give
at the Country Club, their annual
banquet for the Seniors. '
Small Supper Given
Dr. Ralph W. MacDonald, who has
been laboring nobly all year to teach
a group of struggling Juniors some
thing of the history and theory of
Education, was in a very inadequate
but well-meaning way thanked for his
service, Monday night. Nine admir
ing devotees -tt)ere Kis e|ithu^iastic
hostesses at dinner in the college din
ing room, and he immediately became
the object of jealous looks (with in
tent to kill) from all the other men
of the faculty.
The place-cards were in the form
of small books labeled, either: “The
Practice of Eating in the College
Dining Room” by Menry C. Moron
(modeled on The Practice of Teaching
in the Secondary School by Henry C.
Morrison) or “How To Love” by
Knight, with all due apologies to Mr.
Edward Knight who wrote a very
good history of Education, which the
struggling Juniors studied the first
semester. On the first page of the
books was an appropriate verse which
described that particular person much
to his or her chagrin.
For Rachel Carroll:
“I’m yawning from morning till
It’s awful the hours I keep.
I simply can’t live long enough.
I’m afraid, to catch up on my
For Ann Vann:
“I stood before the monkeys’ cage,
Their funny ways to see—
I laughed at them a lot until
t saw one laugh at me.”
The favors were bright colored pop
pers which contained paper hats and
little fortunes pertaining to life, love,
travel, and dark men. When desseH;
was served, a cake was brought in with
the honor guest’s name on it in green
and white icing. The triumph of the
evening was that Rachel Carroll for
one memorable time, had enough cake
to satisfy her ravenous cravings. Ev
eryone had a very happy time.
There could be no more thought
ful way of remembering Mother’s
Day than in the giving of a gift
which will continually serve and
bring pleasure to a number of peo
ple. The Salem girl who, in memory
of her mother, gave a book to the
library which will always be useful
and enjoyed by many, has not only
done a lovely thing for the stu
dents of Salem but she has expressed
her love' in a way which shows, she
knows and appreciates the tiue spirit
of a mother—a spirit which is found
in years of service to others.
■ers who are able to take part ii
noteworthy enterprise, for the Men’s
Bible Class is also addressing its ap
peal for co-operation to the large
Radio Audience which has shared
the privilege of these helpful Bible
lessons, the Alumnae of Salem, and
the citizens of Winston-Salem “who
have high regard for the service of
such an institution as ‘Salem’ and
the outstanding value to the commun
ity of the services rendered in var
ious lines of civic development by
her present head. ’ ’ Though the Bible
Class is not asking any help from the
students in this undertaking, we,
who will bo most widely benefited by
the addition to our library, would
enjoy feeling, when we go away from
Salem, that we have had a part in
raising the Library Fund.
“In selecting: the Library as that
department which is to receive the
benefits of its effort, the Men ’a Class
is assured that it is presenting a
cause which has a very wide appeal
to all classes of donors that it is
providing for a vital and ever-recur-
ring need of the institution and is
rendering a service which will benefit
each member of the student body. It
is persuaded also that it is pleasing
those whom it is seeking to honor.”
In this eifort the class plans for
the fund to provide at once an ad
dition of some three thousand vol
umes to the Library. The distribu
tion to the various departments and
the estimated cost of the volumes for
each is as listed:
Department No. Vols. Price
English 812 $2,296.00
History 313 993.00
Education 239 505.00
