Unwritten Years of
Cluist’s Life
“The unrecorded years of Christ’s
life represents a disappointment for
many people, because there is no rec
ord of His life between the years 2
to 12 and 12 to 30. Efforts were made
in the dark ages to relate fictitious
stories of Christ’s boyhood and
young manhood.
“There are three sources from
which we can get material concern
ing Christ’s youth and young man
hood. First, there is the geograph
ical background, and by geography,
I mean the climate, minerals, and as
tronomical data of that period. The
hills and valleys in the Holy Land
have changed but little from that
day and it is reasonable to suppose
that Jesus was an alert lad and
would have noticed natural phenome
“The second source is the home
life of a pious Jewish household. The
daily life of a typical Jewish boy at
home. The festivals, the Sabbath
days and the whole manner of daily
life was undoubtedly interwoven in
His earliest life.
“The third source and the one
which I shall develop is the Gospels
themselves. Jesus was not avowedly
a writer or speaker who said ‘I re
member’ but in many, many of his
examples one can picture life as it have been in His home or in
that of His neighbors. For instance,
His picture of two women grinding
corn might very well have been from
memory of His mother and a neigh
bor doing this menial household task.
“When Jesus said, ‘Foxes have
holes, birds of the air have nests,
but the son of man has nowhere to
lay his head.’ He showed that he
knew something of the birds and
beasts. It seems so right to imagine
Jesus wandering through the woods
and forests looking for bird nests or
the hole of a fox.
“After Jesus became a young man
He made remarks that show His in
terest in carpentry as when He said
to Simon, ‘Thou art a rock and on
this rock I will build.’ Thus He
changed Simon’s name to Peter,
which means rock On another oc
casion, He said, 'Come unto me all
ye that labor and are heavy burden
ed and I will give you rest. Take my
yoke upon you and learn of Me for
My yoke is easy and My burden is
light.’ A carpenter’s test for a skill
fully fashioned ox yoke is that it is
easy and makes the burden lighter to
“Many people ivonder if Jesus
was normal and played as other chil
dren did. There is nothing to deny
that he enjoyed games and youthful
experiences with children of His
age. I wonder where He learned
His domestic lessons for He certain
ly must have gained some knowledge
of cooking for did He not have a
fire and ‘bread and fish thereon’
for the fishermen coming in at
dawn. I believe He learned this as
a boy, possibly in some such manner
as the Boy Scouts do today.
“Throughout the whole Bible you
can find illusions to happenings
which would normally occur in the
life of a child or youth and I believe
you could add page after page of
pictures which would reconstruct the
life of Jesus which is not told in
Salem Hostess to Wives
The North Carolina Pharmaceuti
cal Association held its 56th meeting
in Winston-Salem from 13th to the
15th of May. The meeting was pre
sided over by E. F. Himms of Char
lotte, who is tho president.
Salem College and Mrs. Rondthaler
entertained the Druggists’ wives at
tea on Tuesday at 4 o’clock. After
the tea the ladies made a tour of
the Salem campus.
Dr. Myers Closes Services
The Covenant Day for Young Peo
ple was observed Sunday, May 12,
in a Lovefeast and Holy Commun
ion Service at the Home Church.
Our college girls were invited, and
those many who attended the serv
ices received a blessing from them.
Dr. Myers, pastor of the First Pres
byterian Church of Greensboro, who
was the speaker every night last
week at the special services, was
also the speaker on Sunday at the
Home Church.
In the morning service, he used
as his text the 22nd Chapter of
Genesis in which God asks Abraham
to give up his son Isaac as a sacri
fice to Him. The subject of the
sermon was “Giving God our Best.”
God always calls upon us to give
Him our best—but somehow wo have
formed the habit of giving him only
the fragments of our time —' per
haps a few minutes at the end of
the day when our minds and bodies
are weary with the day’s work. If
we would put God first in every
thing^ and sacrifice little pleasures in
order to serve Him, we would find
that He ;rej)pys in full measure,
“pressed down and running over.”
At the Lovefeast Service in the
afternoon, Dr. Myers challenged us,
as young people, to stand up for what
is right, and to put a wide margin
between the questionable and the
unquestionable — and not to see how
close we can come to doing wrong,
without actually getting harmed,
but to see how far we can stay away
from it. In order to have power
against sin and evil, we do not have
to have personal experience with
Lovely Mother’s Day
On Sunday evening. May 12, a
Mother’s Day service was held in
“Y” Vesi>er9 at which Mrs. Rond
thaler, our College Mother, spoke.
Pansies were given to everyone at
the door. Erika Marx, who presided,
opened the service with these words;
“O come lot us worship and bow
down . . . God is a Spirit, and they
that worship Him, worship Him in
Spirit and in Truth.” James Bray
sang a solo, and Arnice Topp read
the scripture which is found in
Proverbs 31;10-31.
In beginning her talk, Mrs. Rond
thaler became a symbol for our moth
ers who could not be there. She said
that we take our mothers too much
for granted, and regard them as some
kind of mechanical instrument which
always mends our clothes, cooks our
food, finds our lost articles, and is
always on hand when needed. We
think that our mothers know we love
them, but how much more would it
brighten up their lives if we told
them in so many words that we love
Sometimes a little wall of stiffness
grows up between mother and daugh
ter, perhaps due to some conflict dur
ing adolescence, or to some misun
derstanding over what wo think are
our rights. This can be broken down
by forming a close friendship with
mother—and this friendship is form
ed in the same way as your girl
friendships are formed—by confiding
Miss Blair has announced that
registration will be held this week.

Reviews Work With Creoles
And Indians
Dr. Edmund Schwarze, a member
of the board of trustees of the col
lege, has just returned from a seven
week’s visit to Nicaragua, where he
was sent by the Moravian Mission
ary Board to visit the missions and
to work among the Creoles and In
Dr. Schwarze stated that he had
employed all modes of travel, from
mule-back to airplane. His work
consisted in visiting one Indian vil
lage after another. He was impress
ed with the neatness of the houses
and the orderliness of the villages,
and especially with the good-will of
the Indian people, which reflected
the splendid work of the mission
During his visit, Dr. Schwarze
baptized many Indian babies. The
Indians were from the Miskita, Su-
mu, and Rama tribes. These In
dians diflfer from the Indians that we
know, in that they are not much
given to handiwork, and not very
industrious; but their manner of liv
ing is very much like that of the
American Indian.
They live in villages of about fifty
or a hundred houses, which are built
up to a convenient height for work
ing, and topped with clay hearths.
Nature is good to the Nicaraguan
Indians, for in a single village may
1)0 found breadfruit trees, cocoanut
palms, orange and grapefruit trees,
and banana trees. It is easy to
grow cassava there (cassava is a
starchy vegetable, somewhat like
the potato), so with little exertion
the natives are able to get plenty of
food They also catch many fish in
nearby streams.
“The Indians are friendly,” said
Dr. Schwarze, “and they seem to ap
preciate the coming of visitors. Lit
tle children ran up to us and gave
us both hands to shake, and often
when we were leaving a village we
could look back and see the entire
population assembled waving good
bye to us.”
Dr. Schwarze admired the way
the missionaries had worked with
the people. Ho said that they had
only to ring the bell in any village
church, and within half an hour
the church was filled with villagers.
The lands upon which these In
dians live were granted them a good
many years ago by treaty. The tribes
each have a head man who holds the
land agreement, but these leaders
are no longer called chiefs. The
tribes are under the protection of
the government.
It was pleasing to Dr. Schwarze
to hear the Moravian hymns sung
and the officers of worship read in
the Indian tongue, although he could
not understand all that they were
Dr. Schwarze stated that he felt
that he had gained an insight into
the missionary life and work ifn
Nicaragua and that he was much im
pressed with the worthwhileness of
it. He took hundreds of pictures
during his journey, and has very
graciously promist^d to show them
to the college students and faculty
“if they turn out well.”
On Thursday, May 0 at 5 o’clock,
the French Club motored to Camp
Hanes for a picnic. During the after
noon the girls enjoyed swimming
and boating. About 7 o’clock the
group gathered on the banks of the
lake for a delightful picnic supper.
There were 18 members of the club
present, also Mrs. Taylor Simpson,
Miss Eloise Vaughn, of the Salem
College Faculty, and Mr, Grimes of
the Y. M. C. A.
Non-Fiction Increases 60%
There has been a real increase in
attendance in the Library and in
the circulation of all classes of
books, since the recent addition of
new books from the Quarter Century
Library Fund. The total use of books
from the non-fiction group has in
creased 60% over that of last year,
proving that there is a great increase
in independent and thoughtful read
ing. The increase is as follows:
Fine Rrts—57%
Useful Arts—9%
The circulation of Reserved Books
(a«signed reading), for overnight
use has increased 14%. The use of
books from the fiction group has in
creased 25% over that of last year.
It is interesting to note that the
Library is being used a great deal
more this year by alumnae and other
residents of Winston-Salem.
On Thursday afternoon, May 9th,
at 4:00 o’clock, the Salem College

The Psychology Club held its
monthly meeting, Tuesday night.
May 14, jn the recreation room of
Louisa Wilson Bitting Building. Dr.
K. C. Garrison of North Carolina
State College was the guest speaker.
Ho discussed interestingly, the pre
valent problem, “ Junevile’crime.”
In his lecture Dr. Garrison reported
that the average ago of criminals in
the United States is sharjily drop
ping. Adolescence is the ago when
the child can be lost by crime or
saved by church and family influ
ences. Then it is our duty to help
the child of this age use his leisure
hours profitably and thus have no
time to spend in Juvenile delinquen
cy. Schools should teae.h right at
titudes and through these make good
morals become habits. Leisure time
should be employed in organiied
play and recreation which would be
a suitable cutlet for children's
energy. In this way the United
States might save the 13 billion dol
lars spent annually because of crime,
and 18 year old boys and girls would
be CBgaged in profitable wory and
