GERTRUDE SCHWALBE TALKS ON THE UFE OF ANDREW JACKSON New Student Government President Heard in Chapel In chapel o Tuesday morning, the student body heard a well presented life of President Andrew Jackson, whose birthday was on March 15, given by Gertrude Schwalbe. Jackson’s father died a few days before he was born in 1767, and the famil, consisting of Mrs. Jack son and Andrew’s two brothers went to live with Mrs. Jackson’s sister. Early in his life, he showed ability as a speaker, and he was noticeably bright in his lessons at the academy at Waxhaw Church. The description of him at nineteen is quite famous “a tall, lean, re markably agile, freckle-faced boy, with bright blue eyes, a shock of tousled hair that was almost red, and a temper in keeping” Then followed a detailed account of his very interesting life, his scrap with the Tories, his confinment in a British prison at Gander, his release by request of his mother, and the illness which followed. He attended Queens Museum in Charlotte, pursued law in Salisbury, and practiced in Jonesborough. His marriage with Haehel Danelson and the consequent furor raised by her first husband was a source of an guish and anger to him all the rest of his life, although he loved his wife very dearly, fighting a duel and killing a man in her behalf. In spite of the dirt and rumors raised over this when he became a public figure, Jackson is said to be the (CONTINUED ON PACE FOUR) TWENH-ONE NIGHT SCHOOL PUPILS GIVEN DIPLOMAS Dr. Rondthaler Speaks Br.

ZINA SENDS THANKS News From Zina A letter which Mary Louise Hay wood received from Zina dated January 2oth said in part: “The letters from school, tlie “Y” and the French Club were so much enjoyed, that it can not be ex pressed. I am so proud of all the cards, etc., that whoever conies to our house, it’s the first thing that I show. I thank all the girls from the bottom of my heart and I wish I could write each one separately and thank her for her wishes and send my very best ones in return. How ever, that is inipossible, so, Mary Louise, perhaps I can call on you to thank everyone for me. You know and so often in my thoughts.” and so often in my thoughts.

There was the true story of Jim Foster, the iron-fisted burglar who was inter rupted in his stealthy work by a terrified mother whose baby was dy ing in convulsions. Jim Foster re membered his owji baby who had died in convulsions because no one had known what to do. The cold- hearted breaker of safes sympa thized with the mother. He put himself in her place. He forgot his hateful task and rushed to the res cue of the dying baby. Ho saved the baby’s life; and then the mother, her eyes filled with tears of grati tude, helped him to escape Miss Penn continued with the thought that we all have a greater or less capacity for sympathizing with others, but we all can do more to ease the hearts of those with whom we come in contact. Because of carelessness, thoughtlessness or even laziness we constantly let price less opportunities of lending a help ing hand go sliding by. How many times when a friend or room-mate longs to ease her aching heart by confiding in us, we turn away with a light, unfeeling word. How many times we fail to give even a part of ourselves to make others happy! If we merely take and never give we will make ourselves miserable. After all it is the giving that makes life (CONTINUED ON PAGE FOUR) COLORED HELP SHOW IS BIG AT TRACTION FOR SONG LOVERS BACH PROGRAM TO REPRESENTED —♦ Bach’s Birthday Celebrated Thursday, March 21st is the 250th birthday anniveisary of Bach who, in the opinion of many, is the greatest musician who ever lived.

Grimke Dragton during the 10th ! century with 128 varieties of camel- | lias, in 1848 there were almost 250 : varieties. The garden is an infor- ' nial one, including such flowers as dogwood, azelea, and wisteria, and also many fine old oak trees hung with gray Spanish moss. | Pictures were shown also of the ' Middleton gardens, located on the! same road.

( Important Notice: A world cham pion has visited Salem! No—not Helen Hicks nor Georgia Coleman, but Remo Paulina, the fastest ama teur typist in the world. She holds thi.s years’ world record of typing 121 words a minute for hour. The attractive Miss Remo Paulina gave an interesting demonstration in the rooms of the Business Depart ment. She first told the Business Strugglers two “hows” she became champion: First, by concentration; and second, by having rhythm in her typing (do di dum). Have you heard the strange Chinese sounding music from Miss Barrow’s rooms! Well, that’s for rhythm, but the con centration is not so audible. Miss Paulino sat down and de monstrated by pecking out 12.’5 w^ords a minute an her typewriter. The keys were certainly sizzled I Then, she gave an imitation of one of Miss Barrow’s prize pupils typing a mere 45 words a minute. Every body laughed but the Business Stu dents know that 45 words per minute despite imitations, were wonderful to them. But wait — this is not the half of it. Miss Paulina suggested that her audience ask her questions while she typed. Many and various questions were thrown at her, but she nonchalantly typed away, iui- swering them witho\it hesitation. After one minute was gone, she pull ed out her paper, and hal a correct copy at 120 words a minute. Good! We’ll agree' the best in the world.
