Mary Penn, the heroine of the

In regard to her excellent manage
ment of the Trustee dinner, Dr. An-
scombe said to her during coffee at
Dr. Eondthaler’s: “Miss Penn, I
congratulate you on being able to
wind up your mouth and go off and
leave it.” If that’s what Mary did,
it was really fair grade winding.

Bushy McLean and Cokey Preston
escorted the two leading male stars
to the opening night 'Of the movie
entitled the Washington Pageant.”
Mr. Bahnson, w^o.admitted that the
movie verses had driven him n.uts,
was heard to remark to his admiring
eseortress during the showing —
“Here comes Dr. Bondthaler. He
had on knickers that gave us the
snickers.” Other side remarks made
by our hero, and his man“ Toddy
Spaugh” were most enlightening.

Third, one needs the power to do the

come. An example of this was found
in the influence Benjamin Franklin
and Abraham Lincoln had on a little
immigrant boy to urge him to come
to the United States. They served
as stars to steer by, a thing which
every one needs. Fourth, one needs
pardon. One should follow the light

a line for himself in the partnership

Banqueting and parleying occu-

ous juniors and sophomores this
last week-end. The beautiful jun-
ors were quite the shining lights
if the entertainment after the ban-
uet Saturday night; but several
sophomores did well by their class

ledding, and Margaret Calder (Jo
Whitehead wont home for the week-
ind and so missed the affair).

After the delightful Senior-Trustee
dinner the entire college assembled
in Memorial Hall to witness the pic
tures of the Washington pageant as
well as snapshots of college life. The
former pictures were taken tw’o
years ago when Salem was celebra
ting the arrival of Washington in
this North Carolina town in 1781.
The most exciting feature of this
episode was the meeting of the Presi
dent with the Governor of this state.
Everything was exactly reproduced
—band players, tinsmiths, black
smiths’ hatters, tobacconist. The
entire cast was in costume fitting
that period. We followed the page-
ane over the entire Salem Campus
and reeognied many faces known to
us in this community.
There followed pictures of cam
pus life at the Academy and at the
College. From the kitchen through
the living room to the athletic fields
we view maids, furniture, girls en
gaged in playing tennis, hockey and
golf or swimming or horseback
riding. Here and there in the audi
ence soiheoiie w'ould say, “Oh,
there’s Barbara,” “and Elizabeth
— Mary — Margaret!” About

dean and her assistant in front of
Main Hall, Buddy Downs tottering

buildings about our college grounds,
the view of the Academy on the hill,

The Freshmen have been so busy
lately—what with Founders ’ Day
and all the accompanying excitement
that they’ve had very little time
for the usual gossiping.

For the fallen and the weak;

Rather than in silence shrink,

of North Carolina, who spoke inter:
estingly on “What Alumnae Can
Do.For the College.” Among,other
things, Mr. Comer said that the
greatest service any alumnae can
render the college is an exemplary
life, for girls judge college by the
alumnae. He also said that the
alumnae who knows most about her
college is the one who is most fre
quently there and upon whom the
college calls for leadership.
During the evening Dr. Bond

of Miss Emma Lehman, teafeher at
Salem for 50 years, a photograph of
