AS SEASON ENDS [&
Miss Stockton Does Herself
Proud Again in Exterior
And Interior Decorating
Weil, girls! Here we are at the
IFockey Banquet. It’s a little after
6:15 p. m. and the dining room is
all bedecked with tables forming a
great hockey stick, and Thanksgiv
ing decorations. In case you were
not up near the front the orchestra
—yes, a real orchestra—played the
Washington and Lee Swing while we
entered, led by Doctor and Mrs.
Rondthalcr. Miss Atkinson and Miss
Margaret Ward marched next, and
then, in the usual order, Seniors,
Juniors, Sophs and Freshes. Those
were very attractive x>lace cards by
which w’e found our places, Lois
Torrence made them in class colors.
The decorations charmingly fore
cast Thanksgiving and two teams
of turkeys with hockey sticks (I
jiever knew turkeys played hockey)
are holding forth in the center of
the tables. Autumn leaves screen
the orchestra. Miss Margaret Ward
has given us all a pleasant greeting
and various ton.sts will follow. The
.song contest will take place betw’een
the classes with Dr. l?ondthaler, Mr.
Schofield, and Miss Vaughn as the
judges. The Hockey Medals will be
presented by Miss Minnie Atkinson
at the close of tlie banquet and the
Hockey Season will then reach its
grand and glorious finish. You
know by now which class is vic
torious. The closing anthem will
be a most appropriate one. If it
were called ‘ ‘ Farewell to Knee-
Caps,” we might think we were
still playing hockey!
} SONQ CONTEST
j Original songs have been com-
}posed by each class in honor of the
I banquet tonight. These songs are
jto be presented and the best one
I judged. You will find a copy of the
j songs on this page with the cx-
jception of the P^eshman Song,
j which wil Ibc distributed by the
1 Freshman Class. They want it to
be a surprise.
DR. AND MRS. ANSCOMBE
Many Friends Call to Offer
November 15, Dr. and Mrs. Francis
C. Anscombe entertained the fac
ulties of Salem Academy and Salem
College and othet friends at their
home on Park Boulevard in honor
of their silver wedding anniversary.
Miss Isabel Ferguson greeted the
guests at the door' and presented
them to Dr. and Mrs. Anscombe.
The wedding of Dr. and Mrs. Ans
combe was a truly Quaker one, in
which the contracting parties mar
ried themselves. The marriage cer
tificate was of special interest be
cause of its fine penmanship and
beautiful painting on its binding.
In the center of the table in the
dining room there was a lovely cake,
elaborately iced, and decorated with
silver leaves. “Twenty-fifth anni
versary” w'as inscribed on it. Miss
Minnie J. Smith poured tea, and
Misses Dorothy Knox, Elizabeth
Zachary, and Mrs Robert Walker
served the attractive refreshments.
Salem students extend to Dr. and
Mrs. Anscombe their best wishes, and
hope they will have much happiness
in the years to come.
Consolation Hockey Game
Wednesday afternoon, November
21, many onlookers in the grandstand
of the Salem College Hockey Field
were greatly excited when the Sen
iors and Sophomores met in a fierce
com)>at. Both forces put up de
termined fights, and joy of joys! the
Soi)homores, in the person of Rawl-
ingson, made a goal. The score at
the end of the first half'was to the
Sophs’ ^od, 1-0!
In the second half of the game,
the tenseness was iuereased and
suddenly brought to a climax when
Tuttle made two goals for the
Seniors. Thus when the whistle was
blown the score was 2—-I, in favor
of the Seniors.
HOCKEY GAMES OF
STARTS OFF HOCKEY
The Freshmen made a good snow
ing in their first Hockey game on
Friday, November 2, but the Jun
iors defeated them by a score of
1—0 when Blum made a goal. Both
teams emerged from the game much
wiser than they had entered it. The
Freshmen learned by sad experience
about “sticks,” “free hits,” roll-
ins,” and “corners.” The Juniors
and other upper-classmen learned
about ‘ ‘ the Freshmen. ’ ’ Miss Anna
Preston and Miss Shorty Biles were

On Wednesday, November 7, the

HOCKEY SEASON ENDS

Orchestra Transforms the
Hut Into Music Hall
What could be a more appropriate
way of ending the hockey season
than with a ball, we ask you?
(Only here’s ho]>ing you didn’t have
a ‘^sticky” time). (Did you catch
the point? You know, hockey,
sticks, ball—a pun).
The gym you left this afternoon
so cold, so bar'e, has by this time—
(if the crepe-paper got here) been
turned into a veritable cornfield.

and corn shucks and other things
harvesty. And by the time you
wend your way down tliere the orch
estra [)laying so melodiously now
will have snuck out the back way
and beat you there.
There will also be food available
in case you need nourishment in the
midst of the Continental—which we
hear is the on'y dance of the sea
son. Anyway, be sociable. Scoop
out a dime, push your way to the
hut, dribble your pennies in the
goal keeper’s palm, and have your
shin guards ste|)ped on tonight at
the Harvest Ball. (P. S. no cutting

Mary explained that the Senior
Class has ordered a non rusting
brass chain to be placed around the
base of the ti'ee. On each of the
thirty-eight links in this chain will
be engraved the name of a Senior.
The end of the chain will be joined
together in symbol of the everlasting

Because the chain had to be order

Tune—Original, by B. C. Dunford
By thy strength, 0 Salem
Thy light shall flash across the sky.
We shall march to victory
With thy banner high.
By fair ]>lay, clean sportsmanship
What is hard to undertake!
And we shall help you fight.
Nor thy cause ever forsake.
With never-ending loyalty
We strive to lift thy name;
No credit do wo wish ourselves,
Thine be the everlasting fame.
Tune: Or Was It Just a Dream?
Sta))d up and cheer a name.
Whose fame will never die.
Above all blame
We’ll lift and hold it high;
And without shame
. We '11 ,‘jhout it to the sky,
IT’S SALEM, FOREVER!!
And it is her dear name,
The same that came to us
From ancient days,
And history glorious.
That is a flame
To burn victorious

Varsity to Be Chosen From
Four Class Teams
From sitting on balls to knocking
them through goals, the hockey play
ers have made this a spectacular
season. 'I’o begin from the ground
and ascend, the freshmen have made
the upjier classmen stand back w'ith
mouths gaping. Of course Weasle’s
solidity and rock wall durability
have made the freshman backfield
pretty secure. Willena Couch does
by no means lie down on the job,
and Cornelia W'olfe keeps her wits
about her even if her hair does fly
away. The North has done well by
its trio, Lincoln, Knox and King.
Lincoln’s ancestor, Knox’s long
legs, and Iving’s rotundity keep the
ball from rolling into their oppon
ent ’s goal. Even if Grace Parker
did break a stick it shows how that
girl can hit. Perhaps we should at
tribute the freshmen’s unusual rec
ord to their “ducky” little white
tunics. Do they make you feel like
professionals, Freshmen ?
The So])homores! Considering that
I'reeman is so near-sighted, that
Rawlingson takes such short steps,
that Council snickers at every miss-
hit, that Hullock runs so swiftly, that
Xorman stands and hits, that Ritter
cuts np caj)ors when she is excited,
that Ilighsmith substitutes for Fra
ley, that Hutchison broke her
glasses, thal Calder is Susan’s sis
ter, you played a very re8])ectable
series of games. We congratulate
you on knowing how and when to
sell food at the hockey game.
Juniors? X Marx the sjwt be
hind which the ball is not permit
ted to go. The shackles all fall from
the juniors’ feet when Fetters is
loosed, to say nothing of Blum, Best,

JAZZ NUMBER GETS
APPLAUSE AT THE
Dean Vardeil Receives
Eight Curtain Calls
The largest audience of the season
turned out Monday night to hear the
North Carolina Symphony Orchestra
present a program which included a
symphonic jazz number. Lamar
Stringfield conducted the orchestra
in the Reynolds Auditorium. Dean
Charles G. V'ardell, Jr., of the Musics
De])artment of Salem won an ovation
for his oiitstanding solo work in the
|iiano part of “Rhapsody in Blue,”
by Gershwin. The entire program
was w'ell received by the audience.
'I'ho first number was Weber’s
“Oberou Overture.” In this the
work of the strings and woodwinds
stood out. The overture is v'ery
beautiful, especially certain lilting
pa.ssages of the violins.
Next on the program were the
third and fourth movements of the
“Scheherazade Suite” by Rimsky-
Korsakow, called “The Young
Princess” and “Festival at Bag
dad. ’ ’ These selections wore me
lodic, oriental, and very well played.
The audience was delighted by them.
“Night on Bare Mountain,” by
Moussorgsky, was the last number
before intermission. This weird com
position expresses in music “Sub-
terranenan sounds of supernatural
voices—appearance of the spirits of
darkness, followed by that of Satan
himself—Glorification of Satan and
