DO YOU KNOW ANY
Friends and alumnae of Salem have given us many of
the buildings and much of the equipment which we are enjoy
ing now. The alumnae are interested in us and have done much
in the way of gifts and scholarships to make our school life
happier. We should be as interested in them as they are in
US; many of them are extremely interesting and some are very
outstanding women. The college is'^very anxious to keep in
touch with “old girls” and in order to do this the alumnae
files are kept’up in the registrar’s office. One of the most diffi
cult things in the w'orld Ls to keep up with the marriages and
travels of Salem Alumnae. Nevertheless, the office tries very
hard to have the present married names and addresses of the
alumnae in its files. The girls at Salem now — especially the
boarding students — could do.the Alumnae Association and the
College a service by giving the maiden name (and married name,
if she is married )and present address of any Salem alumna
they know to anyone in the registrar’s office. Stick it through
the slot in the door, if the office is locked. This is an appeal.
Please answer it!
The Museum of Modern Art Film
Library has begun to store some
where in the Bronx an imposing
mass of motion picture film which
some day should present a compre
hensive survey of the motion picture
industry since 1899, its birth date.
John E. Abbott is the general
manager of this film library. He
and his staff have brought film rel
ics to light in the most unexpected
places—though Hollywood has been
rather desultory in supplying ma
terial for the library shelves. The
museum is not permitted to buy
films, but it may pay laboratories
$25.00 for printing 1,000 foot reels.
So far the Museum has been too
busy selecting films to worry much
about editing or classifying the col
lection, but eventually the pictures
will be filed in chronological and
topical sequence, to be edited into a
series of programs which colleges
and libraries may use. The first
series of programs may be ready in
Some of the chief items of the
present collection are: “The May
Irwin-John C. Eice Kiss,” a 50-foot
feat of osculation which in 1896
shocked Broadway and brought the
first film crusade for censorship;
Griffith’s “Birth of a Nation,” in
its full 12-reel version; Theda Bara’s
“A Fool There Was”; a French
“Count of Monte Cristo,” which
runs for 23 reels; the earliest Har
old Lloyd films from 1915; and a
six-reel f&ture film, starring Sarah

SPEAKS ON MUSIC

FEESHMEN COMMISSION MEETS
Are you guarding your health properly against T. B.?
If you smoke, you should have a physical examination once a
month to sed that your lungs are not involved.
Science has discovered wonderful cures for T. B.; how
ever, the “past-help” or “ beyond-control ” patient cannot be
cured. By rest, and the word rest is associated with every
phase of T. B. cure, even the “hopless” cases can prolong their
lives without having to suffer too greatly.
A visit to the T. B. Hospital will educate you to the re
markable things with which doctors can now do toward find
ing and relieving the T. B. patient. X-Rays play the leading
role w'hen the patient enters the haspital for examination. Films
are made of his lungs from two angles, and these are examined
through powerful lens, which give the films volume by reflect
ing each of the two films from strong-lighted frames into a
single picture of the film. If the film shows a white-speckled
or “snow'-coyered” area over any part of either or both lungs,
it is a sure sign of the T. B. prm. This type of area is usually
found at the apex of the right lung; however, it may show
up at the base or at the apex of either or both lungs. It is
said that more than 50 per cent of the cases show up first in
the right lung.
The patients are kept in bed constantly if their cases are
serious; some are given bath-room privileges; some may take
mild exercise for a short period of time each day after they have
shown suff^icient improvement, and some cases are given direct
sun baths in the open-air porches.
A T. B. victim then is given REST above all; plenty of
air and sunshine, and a good diet.
The Salem Exchange is receiving
“The E-ambler,” Charlotte High
School Paper, and “Blue and
White,” Knoxville, Tennessee, high
school paper. Another new feature
for the Exchange rack is an inter
esting magazine called “Pulse” (of
the Nation). Get acquainted with
these added exchanges.

magazines and yearbooks are over

We are grateful to the Y. W. C. A. for the splendid
peace programs that they presented to us last week in chapel.
'She talks were truly inspiring, they made us want to “do
something about” peace. Not only did we get a better under
standing of the horror of war and the beauty of peace but also
there was instilled in us a greater desire for our country to
be at peace with the other nations of the world.
We can show our appreciation by attending the discus
sions that are sponsored by the World Fellowship Committee.
Let’s prove that we appreciated and approved of the peace
programs last week.

because they haven’t time to wait

free will and accord. And because
of th^s their lives are shortened by
many years. At the same time the
folks on Main Street live more leis
