WHO WENT WHERE AND
WHO DID WHAT
Over The Week-End
Davidaon and Chapel Hill had some
visitors from Salem over the week
end, strange as that may seem! Sara
Johnston kept up her record and
went over to Davidson. Cokey could-
n^t let hers run down either, so she
tripped the light fantastic over at
the Hill. We ask you—did Babbie
and Pat really go over to Chapel Hill
to visit Babbie's aunt—? We have
Mary Frances Hayworth did her
share of going home this week-end.
On Saturday night she went over
on a picnic, taking Tee, Julia. Lee
and Bessie Lou with her. She came
back with them, and then went home
again for the day on Sunday.
Ethel J. was not to be outdone by
Seniors and Juniors, so she went
over to Chapel Hill too. She visited
the ATO house.
Martha Nolan went home for the
week-end and Bessie Lou Bray went
home for the day.
Florence MeCanless went home—
to South Boston—for the week-end.

WILL YOU STAY?
Three years from now the Fresh
men will be graduating. Two years
from now the Sophomores will be
graduating. One year from now the
Juniors will be graduating. This
year our Seniors are graduating.
How would you feel if you knew
that the girls you had lived with and
learned to know intimately were not
going to stay at college, to see you
take the final step from college to
professional, or shall I say, personal
lifeT The Seniors are just as anx
ious as you will be to have all their
friends and acquaintances stay to
experience the commencement with
May I speak a word to the Juniors,
privately. You will be graduating
next year and will need to know all
you can about the commencement
exercises. You yourselves will be
going through it all, next year.
Sophomores, the present Seniors
are your big sisters. Don^t you thinks
you owe them a little respect and
Freshmen, this is your fir.st year at
Salem. Don’t you want to be called
one of the college girls instead of
just a visitor!
Let’s all show the Seniors how
much we think of them by staying
for their commencement!

Emma D. Spent Sunday in Mocks-
ville with Jane and Pauline.
Jane Williams went with Grace
Carpenter home (where t — you
guessed it! Statesville), and Dot
Moore, who has recovered from her
case of recital, went to High Point.
Anne Taylor (very proud of new
glasses), and Martha Neal (also
proud of Anne’s glasses), journeyed
over to Salisbury.
Jane Crow went to Mocksville and
Dorinne Pate spent Sunday in Greens

Frances Cole’s guests over the
week-end were Esther Gorman and
Mary Franklin, from Queens-Chieora
Nancy went over to Cooleemee,
and Delle Huggins to Leaksville
for the week-end.
Guess who was Delle’s room-mate
on Friday night? If you heard her
laugh, of course it isn’t fair for you
to guess. The halls of Alice Clewell
again resounded to Leone’s laugh,
and everyone enjoyed seeing her
Garnelle and Margaret Sears rep
resented the Junior Class of Salem
College at Chapel Hill this week-end.
Was it a nice convention, girls?
Laura Emily Pitts’ mother was
her guest on Sunday.
Flora Lee’s over-the-night guest
on Saturday was Alice Googe.
Lib Moore took Cornelia Wolf
and Virginia Sisk with her to Burl
ington, and Mildred Troxler also
went over to her home there. More
power to you, Burlington! Katherine
May took Martha O ’Keffe home with
her to Burlington, too. When is the
rest of the Freshman Class going to
move over there? We wonder.
Mary Nelson Anderson went home
to Mocksville and Janet Stimpson
also went home for the week-end.
Wilda Mae visited Naomi Binford
at Guilford College.

HOSTESS TO SENIORS
The purpose of “The Salemite,”
as stated in the Constitution found
in the Handbook, “shall be to pro
mote good scholarship; to serve as
a high toned medium for expressing
student opinion; to encourage worthy
enterprises; to serve as a cumulative
history, from the present date, of
this institution; and to invite the
exercise of. leadership, tact, co-oper
ation, and sound business principles
in the student body.”
Of course, the first purpose of any
newspaper is to publish the current
news—to keep its readers informed
about what is happening about them.
We shall try to promote good scholar
ship through recognition of students
who have done outstanding academic
work and through the excellent op
portunity which ‘ ‘ The Salemite ’ ’
offers for the development of writing

about matters of interest to Salem
College. Wo should like to feel that
the paper is a forum for open dis
cussion of topics of current interest.
We want to encourage worthy enter
prises, through giving to them due
publicity and support.
“The Salemite” is a cumulative
history of the institution of Salem
College. It must be accurate, inter
esting, and complete, in order to real
ize to the fullest extent this service.
We invite your constructive criti
cism of “The Salemite” in order
that it may fulfill its purpose in the
greatest possible way. If you have
already heard our jokes — tell us
about it, if you don’t like our choice
of poetry, we can change it; if you
don’t read our features, we want you
to say so. If you would like for us
to publish articles which we do not,
we shall welcome your suggestions.
“The policy of ‘The Salemite’
shall be truthfulness, broadminded
ness, originality, and co-operation.”

JUNIORS AT PICNIC
Did you go to the Freshman-Jun

here went (so the Freshmen and
Juniors say). They left the South
Gate at 5:15 in two big trucks and

around the creek and came back to

Dell” and “Drop the Handker

Riggan and Mrs. Downs (according

THIS SUN TAN CRAZE
The latest epidemic, the S. T. C.
(Sun Tan Craze), has invaded Salem,
and the results are startling. The
studious Emma D. Wargo has become
a sun addict; she spends many hours
sitting in front of Louisa Bitting
dormitory in pursuit of a sun tan.
Virginia Lee and Bernice Harris
are also healthy specimens of what
an hour a day in the sun will do.
Many other girls are striving to
become “sisters of the sun,” wheth
er it be by the sun burn route or
not. Some don bathing suits and lie
around the swimming pool during
the hottest hours of the afternoon,
while others practice archery, tennis,
and golf in the hope of securing an
outdoor complexion. Some are con

HOW NOT TO UGHT A BRIDGE TABLE
Think of trying to play bridge by the light of two candles, stuck in|
bottle tops. ..Yet that is the eciuivalent of the light in mamy homes
— a level of illumination that will make any party drag.
For gayer, UveUer parties, use an indirect portable lamp,. .It pro
vides the ideal light shadowless and glareless — for playing bridge
and other games in comfort . • . and an eciually efficient light for
a quiet evening of reailing.
Phone Southern Public Utilities Co. and ask for a free demonstration
of the new type direct-ondirect lamp in your home.
