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 January. 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 Bernhardt. EXCHANGE Philadelphia, Pa. (ACP)—A ques tionnaire skirmish recently em broiled men and women on the Uni versity of Pennsylvania campus. The Daily Pennsylvanian started it by asking the men whether they preferred pretty girls or smart ones, slinky or fluffy evening dresses, and other questions of importance in higher education. The girls countered mth a ques tionnaire for women students which began: ‘ ‘ Do you like intelligent men or the typical college boy?” DAY STUDENT PERSONALS Katherine Smith attended the Cita- del-Clemson game in Charleston on’ last Saturday. I understand that The Spinster Club is having a dinnner party on next Wednesday at the Reynolds Grill. I hope they don’t borrow my boy friend. Betty Wilson spent Sunday climb ing mountains. Yes, l*om was there, too. Day Students attending the Duke- Carolina game were: Wilena Couch, Kate Pratt, Betty Bahnson. THE SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST The infit die—the fit both live and thrive. Alas, who say so?—They who do survive. So, when her bonfire lighted hill and plain, Did Bloody Mary think on Lady Jane. So Russia thought of Finland, while her heel Pell heavier in the prostrate com monweal. So Booth of Lincoln thought; and so the High Priest let Barabbas live, and Jesus die. —Sarah N. Cleghorn. [y.w.cT^n^I JANE RONDTHALER SPEAKS ON MUSIC AT VESPER SERVICE Jane Eondthaler was the speaker at a most impressive music Vesper service, Sunday evening, November 17. Her subject was “Music.” A beautiful music program in cluded “Day is Dying in the West,” by the choir; a trio “Savior Breathe an Evening Blessing,” Jane Eond thaler, Mary Mills and Eose Siewers; a solo, ‘My Peace Thou Art,” Har riet Tavlor. WOELD PEACE DISCtTSSION GEOUP A group of students met with Miss Covington Tuesday afternoon in the “Y” room for an open forum. The four resolutions which were voted on in Chapel were again discussed. FEESHMEN COMMISSION MEETS WITH CAMNET CALINURUS TUBERCULOSIS CURES STUDIED 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. Editors of college newspapers, magazines and yearbooks are over whelmingly in favor of the re-elec tion of President Franklin D. Roose velt, according to a recent poll. Starlight; with deep and quiet breathing slept The southern sea. The white-winged ship that bore The good Aeneas fi'om his Dido’s shore. Ghostlike, with rippling furrows, on ward crept. And only faithful Palinurus kept Tlie midnight watch—but ah, the magic bough. The opiate dew that dript upon his brow, The vacant post, the friends who waking wept. The gods demand their victims; who shall know What failures Time and Circum stance compel ? Yet, if such doom were mine, I would ’twere so That they would mark my absence thus: “How well Even unto the last he struggled, lo! He bore the rudder with him when he fell!” The Freshman Commission met with the “Y” Cabinet on Wednes day. The cabinet discussed with the commission the organization of the “Y, ” and its purpose of living a Christian life every day. COMMUNITY SERVICE COMMITTEE TO SPONSOR MUSICAL SERVICE Sunday afternoon the Community Service Committee will sponsor a musical service at the Junior League Hospital. Anyone who is interested is invited to go. VESPEE SEEVICE Melrose Hendrix will be the speak er at the Thanksgiving Vespers Sun day evening. Kenneth Bryant will sing a solo. The cash value of a college edu cation has been placed at $72,000. Yale students earned a total of $432,132 last year. Nineteen deaths attributable to football directly have occurred this season. College football produced only one fatility, high school play 14. Almost all American colleges have now established dancing as a regular part of their curricula. Three Massachusetts schools. Holy Cross, Williams and Harvard have declined NYA assistance. Ten times as many students are using their college libraries now as in 1925. Here are somp nice defijxitions from ‘^The Purple and White”: Addis Ababa—Begining of a famous poem about black sheep. II Duce—A low card. Maxim Litvinoff—A Russian prov erb. Propaganda—A Paper Goose. And even more- (from “Campus Comments”): Adam—A very small piece of some thing in Chemistry. Ate—Number after seven. Away—A word meaning ‘ ‘ whither. ’ ’ Aware—Aware can my bonnie be? Clog—Time piece. Cod—Used in bridge games. Epistle—A gun. Rant—The money the landlord wants Senor—Noise made in sleep (probably No. 9576, section 5B) by “Big Broadcast of 1936.” Slip—Easy way to live through a lecture. Soccer—Candy on a Stick. Suite—Like sugar. PEACE PROGRAMS 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. EVERYBODY TO HIS OWN NOTION In one of his recent syndicated verbal storms, O. O. McIntyre said that the only different 'between Broadway and Main Street is that on Main Street they know each oth er. But what a whale of a differ ence that makes I There is no more lonesome spot on earth than Broad way at its busiest. Everybodyi is rushing by, nobody eares for the other fellow, life is just a race against time. New Yorkers live fast because they haven’t time to wait for something to happen of its own 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 urely and longer. And the Main Street person knows everybody who happens to pass, and usually stops to pass the time of day. The differ ence is in the habit which comes from the environment. And the en vironment makes the habit. A. paradox! Yes, but it is a truth never theless, and, according to the old lady who kissed the cow, it’s every man to his own liking. Give Mc Intyre Broadway and we will take Main Street. Rough Stuff Some of our novelists don’t seem to care a hang what they do with their characters’ eyes. For in- stance: “Her eyes roamed carelessly around the room/’ “With her eyes she rivited him to the spot.” “He tore his eyes from her face and they fell on the letter at her feet.” ^ “Their eyes met for a long, breathless moment, and gether. ’ ’ “Marjorie would often take her eyes from the deck and cast them far out to sea.” “He wrenched his eyes away from her. It was a painful moment for both of them,” —^Christian to- Science Monitor.
