ORMANDY CONDUCTS MINNEAPOUS SYMPHONY Large Number of Salem Students Attend G>ncert HONOR ROLL FOR 1ST SEMESTER ISLONGEST IN M/NY YEARS DR. HENRY RISNER SPEAKS AT VESPERS The Art of Living Dr. Henry Kisner, one of the twelve most famous pastors, spoke at Vespers Sunday evening on “The Art of Living.” The Salvation of character is thought. This statement may be based on Phil. 4:8; “Whatsoever things are true, honorable, pure, lovely, and of good report.” Think on these things. Whatever one studie,s will some day be of some use. Wordsworth said, “Life re quires an art which our souls must bend.” Two things which must go into the art of living, are sincerity and inspiration. It is an art of thinking to be able to reduce be wildering things, to know how to command a situation, to understand and interpretate and to discriminate. If we want religious inspiration we must have perception which may be pity, commercial, for show, or for love which is conception. Salvation of character in our con ception of Christ rests upon open ness, sensitivenes, pity, self respect, and independence or the width and breadth of service one can do. Sal vation of the fine art of thinking is in thinking. As a result we have an ideal which is an idea ^vith which we live. Elizabeth Barrett Browning said, “It takes a soul to move a body.” The Minneapolis Symphony Or chestra, under the direction of Eugene Ormandy, internationally famous conductor, presented a con cert in Reynolds Memorial Auditor ium, Monday night, February 4, at 8:30. The concert, which was the third presentation under the auspices of the Civic Music Association, was en joyed by “one of the greatest con cert audiences ever assembled in Koynolds Auditorium.” Salem Col lege and Academy were very well j represented both by students and faculty. The oj)ening number on the pro gram was Kichard Wagner’s Over ture to “The Flying Dutchman.” This was followed by four move ments of the Tschaikowsky Sym phony No. 4 in F. minor. The three compositions played after the inter mission were “Don Juan'’ by Bich ard Strauss, Scherzo Capriccioso by Anton Dvorak and “ Jablotchko, ” a Russian Sailors’ Dance taken from the ballet, “The Red Poppy” by Gliere. The encores that the orchestra played for a very appreciative audi ence were: “Songs My Mother Taught Me,” by Dvorak, a pizzicoti number, and the favorite “Blue Danube Waltz” by Richard Strauss. The Minneapolis Symphony Or chestra is directly affiliated with the University of Minnesota and is now in its thirty-second season. It has more than a hundred pieces.

Sixty-Six Girls Honor Stu dents; Mrs. Morton Omit ted Through Error Dr. Rondthaler read in chapel the two lists of first and second Honors for the First Semester of 1934-35. As he read the list, many marvelled at its length; but in its corrected form it is even longer. Through a mistake Mrs. Morton, who made the first honor roll, was not included in the chapel reoding. Mrs. Morton is to bo congratulated along with the other sixty-five honor students.

ALUMNAE WEEK-END IS BIG SUCCESS Entertainment Is Enjoyed By AU From the moment the first alum na set her foot on this familar ground till the last alumnae left, last week-end was a grand success. Be ginning with the I. R. S. Banquet Friday night events came fast and furious. The alumnae meeting, the academy breakfast, the visiting of classes, expanded chapel on Satur day, the day student’s tea, the trustees and alumnae dinner, the moving pictures, and the party all contributed toward making the en tire time a wonderful round of en tertainment. Two talented alumnae, or should I say two of the many talented alum nae added to the pleasure of the occasion by giving violin solos and by singing. Iji expand)ed chapel Miss Rebecca Hines presented to Dr. Rondthaler in a most unique way the repapering and painting of South Hall that the day students have done. She gave him samples of each kind of paper and paint that was used. Mention must be made of the clever dinner Saturday night at which the trustees were presented to the school as movie stars. Miss Elizabeth Jerome drew the ideal trustee by taking various features of each one and making from them a whole. Dr. Rondthaler expressed his ap preciation in chapel on Tuesday for all the work and infinite care that students, faculty and other help took to make the week-end as big a suc cess as it really w’as.

An other musical feature was a violin solo, played by Mrs. Laura H. Nor- den, visiting alumna. Dr. Rondthaler explained briefly about the founding of Salem College. Four men, Frederick William de Marshall, John JI. Graff, Paul Tiersch, Richard Utley, representing Saxony, Franconia, Germany and Yorkshire England, determined to give girls and young women educa tional opportunities equal with those of men, in 1772 established the col lege. Miss Mary Penn, representing the Scorpians, then introduced the speaker. Dr. Charles Myers. He spoke of the greatness of the personalities of the pioneers who founded Salem College, and of their determination. They as great people of today, were not controlled by fear of the conse quences, or by fear of not following tho way of the crowd. To develop fine personalities we need, first, faith in God. Notions which have had faith in God have never been ruined. Just as Jesus showed deep interest in the people with whom he came in contact, people today should re- •spond deeply and quickly to the things around them. Many times people have failed Him, yet he con tinues to trust them. Second, there (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO) At the 18th annual meeting of the Winston-Salem branch of the Salem College Alumnae Association, held Friday night in the college library, Mrs. Harry Grimsley was re-elected president of the chapter.

The Senior Class sang an original •song to the tune of “Lady Play Your Mandolin.” Dusty are the desert lands Crusty are the ocean strands Lusty now we clap our hands Trustee here’s to you!
