MR. CUFFORD BAIR
GIVES VOCAL RECITAL
First Recital of Year Given
Mr. Clifford Bair gave the first
recital of the year Monday evening,
September 28. His artististry, ver
satility, and ability to portray the
mood of the songs, climaxed by his
pleasing voice, gained for him great
His finish, facility, and fine dra
matic sense were shown in his first
group of songs.
“A Chloris” Hahn
‘ ‘ Che Fiero Costume ’ ’ Legrenzi
An English Ballad
‘' Mein Maedel ’ ’ Brahms
Perfect diction, ease, and au
thority were particularly noted in
the group of German songs.
“ Verschwiegre Liebe”
“ Liebesbriefchen ” Norrgold
The aria, “Aubade,” from Lala’s
“Roi d’ ys” gave Mr. Bair an op-
ortunity to do some excellent pianis
simo work which met with great
The conclurfing group was English.
“Page’s Boad Song” Novella
“Casual Lovers” Box
“Iris” Daniel Wolf
“Kangaroo and Dingo” .... German
This group was enthusiastically re
ceived by the audieconce.
In response to the great applause
of the large audience. Mr. Bair sang
a number of encores among which,
‘‘Stout’ ’ Carpenter
“Were You There”
Dean Vardell was the capable and
perfect accompanist for Mr. Bair.
To the tune of the funeral dirge,
twenty black-robed jurors, a long-
faced judge, and a stern-voiced clerk
filed solemnly on the stage of Me
morial Hall. To the tune of the
same funeral dirge, seventy-five
freshmen hearts skipped a beat and
thon thumped furiously in union. The
much-dreaded, yet greatly anticipa
ted event was about to begin. Judge
iNfartin beat on her desk. Sophomore
Court was called to order.
It was great sport to see each
freshman, blinded by the spotlight,
stumble shakily to the stage, and
wait meekly before the judge for her
sentence. And what sentences they
were! Grapes soaked in horseradish,
alias goat’s eyes, were passed among
one group; flour and water were
doused on five painted faces; Nancy
Hannah’s shirt was calmly removed
before the whole audience (you
should have heard them cheer); an
un-interprative spring dance was ren
dered by four damsels and a sheet;
bananas were fed by six blindfolded
girls to each other; an exciting game
of polo was executed by 'One player,
one horse, and one ball; long, juicy
worms were fed to six of the vic
tims; and to end this wonderful ex
hibition, eggs were broken on half
a dozen girls’ foreheads.
Love played a very important part
in the court, owing to the Leap Year
influence, Dainty little Betty San
ford asked Mr. Bair to be her hus
band, and although Frances Klutz
looked mighty adoringly into Mr.
Holder’s eyes and gave several old-
fashioned blushes, she did not quite
work herself up to the proposal
The warrants served on all fresh
men stated that their sentences be
gan at three Wednesday afternoon
and continued through the court.
They were at the merey of the sopho
mores and had to do whatever com-

Rev. Walser Allen, pastor of the
Kernersville Moravian Church, was
the speaker at Y. P. M., Wednesday
Mr. Allen visited Palestine in June.
Before landing news reached him of
the dangerous and unsettled con
ditions there. Traveling independ
ently with a friend, Mr. Allen de
cided to try to get into Jerusalem.
After many exciting adventures he
finally reached the Holy City. The
bus which carried him in had to
be guarded by a British armored
truck and an airplane.
In speaking of his entrance he
“When I pictured General Allenby
walking into Jerusalem with his
head bared and no shot fired, I
thought that Allenby had entered
the city with much less difficulty
He went to the American School
of Oriental Research, where he stay
ed during a week of sightseeing in
the Holy Land.
Everywhere the atmosphere was
ten.w and everything was upset.
“Palestine,” said Mr. Allen, “can
not support any more people than are
already crowded int othe little coun-
trj'. .Tews are pouring in by the
thousands, claiming Palestine as
their rightful property because of the
Ralfour treaty. The Jews are doing
a marvelous piece of work in Pales
tine. The Arabs do not want the
Jews who arc already in Palestine
to be sent away. They only pray
that no more will be allowed to
enter. ’ ’

Paul’s Episcopal Church entertained

HAVE YOU DISCOV-
Do not bo misled — I am not a
sentimentalist. I firmly believe in
the practical benefits of “ Reading,
Writing, and ’Rithmetic (t),” but I
also believe that Salem has more
to offer than that. 1 may not re
member, this time next year, that
the graph of a tangent is somehow
connected with infinity, hut I shall
always remember the chimes at
twilight in the weeks preceding
Christmas and Easter.
Freshmen, you have come to Sal
em; have you discovered Salemf The
dell is more than a beautiful setting
for May Day; it is a grand place to
read your favorite poetry while you
swing your feet over the bridge. It
is high time, too, that you carve that
certain someone’s initials on the big
oak there, along with the hearts that
were cut in mellow moods of former
