SPRING ELECTIONS NOW IN PROGRESS
SCHOOL OF MUSIC
Presented at Fairview
On March 11, at 4:00 o’clock the
students in the Public School of
Muaio of Salem College presented a
most unusual and interesting “De
monstration Program” with Misa
Nancy McNeely’s Pupils in the sec
ond grade of Fairview School as
performers Miss Nancy McNeely
opened the program as she directed
the children in two songs Miss Ber
tha Hine then asked the children to
sing ‘ ‘ Moo Cow Moo ’ and give back
to her the true tones she sang to
them. Miss Mary Douglas Tinnin
presented staff rotation and led the
children —> the song ‘ ‘ Feathers. ’ ’
Misa Shirley Livengood played many
different rhythmic pieces on the pi
ano and asked the pupils to interpret
the rhythm by skipping or walking
or running. Miss Dorothy Lashmit
then led the children in the reading
of new songs.
A most interesting sketch “A
■Shopping Trip” was next directed
by Miss Nancy McNeely who was
at the piano. Candy peppermint
sticks hung down in the window in
the candy shopper to which came four
little shoppers to buy for the lady
many different colored suckers. The
Ballon man quickly gave the candy
man great competition by the selling
of Balloons about which he sang aft
er he removed his pipe. The Chief
Baker and four little bakers who
composed the rhythmic band then
presented gay and lively entertain
ment for the shoppers.
The entire program was as fol
1. Songs familiar to children
“Open, Little Eyelids”
“I Felt So Very Cross One Day”
—Nancy McNeely directing
2. Tone work — Bertha Hine
a “Moo Cow Moo”
3. Presenting staff notation of a
1“ Feathers ” familar song from
Mary Douglas Tinnin
Typical situation—children should
know the song with words, “loo,”
and syllables, also the meaning of
“phrase;” they should be able to
sing any phrase at random which
teacher calls for. Children should
not have seen any musical notation
before; should not know note values,
staff, clef, etc.
Actual present situation — these
children have had this lesson before,
and are fairly familiar with notation
of this song and several others like
it. Lesson is here presented in re
view, to show process of teaching
4. Rhythm play
As Miss Livengood played, she
asked the children to march, run, or
skip according to the music.
5. Beading new songs
. Situation — children have never
seen these songs before, but have
seen the notation of several familiar
songs and have read one or two oth
er new songs from books.
6. Sketch—“A Shopping Trip”

MRS. THAELER SPEAKS
AT Y. P. M.
Tells of Work In
At Wednesday morning chapel,
March 10, Mrs. Buth Thaeler took
Salem students and faculty on an
imaginary trip to the interior of
Nicaragua where Dr. Thaeler, her
son, is in charge of a mission hos
She related Salem with that hos
pital by telling us that two Salem
girls, Dorothy Heidenreich and Mar
tha Schlegel have sisters who are
nursing there. Her talk included a
history of the settlement of Nicara
gua in 1847, a description of the
Moskito Indinans who live there, and
a picture of the small interior village
“near the jungle” where Dr. Thaeler
is located. Seventeen thousand peo
ple have trudged miles to this clinic
and there have been two hundred
operations. Three hundred and fifty
patients have been treated since last
August for the small fee of twenty-
five cents a person.
Last year there was a very destruc
tive hurricane in Nicaragua which
destroyed banana plantations, the
only means of earning a livelihood
for the natives. The mission work
seemed then about to fail, but, with

One of North Carolina’s most tal
ented pianists, Mrs. Louise Nelson
Pfohl, wife of Director J.ames Chris
tian Pfohl wil play with the David
son Symphonic Band the Concerto
arrangement of Liszt’s Hungarian

Pfohl. The director of the Band is
a former Winston-Salem Boy, the son

the University of Michigan, and later

WORK BEGINS ON NEW
Work on the new library has be
gun. The beautiful cedar tree has
been trnasplanted to the lower cam
pus. Flowers and sod from the lot
will be saved, and the musie building
will be torn down.
The Frank L. Blum Company who
were awarded the contract, will be
gin the actual construction at onee.
At present about five thousand
dollars are needed to complete the
building. It is hoped that this money
may be obtained, for the speedy com
pletion of the library.
Roanoke Island will this year be
con.spicious in the news of the world
by reason of the celebration of the
350th anniversary of the settling of
Sir Walter Raleigh’s Lost Colony,
which begins July Fourth and con
tinues through September sixth.
D. B. Fearing, chairman in charge
of arrangements, reported while in
Raleigh this week that requests for
information had come from the lead
ing newspapers of London and other
English cities as well in America.
Particular emphasis has been placed
upon the settlement of Roanoke Is
land because it marks the beginning
of English civilization in America.
Oberammegrau in Upper Barvaria,
Germany, has long been noted thro
ughout the world for the Passion
Play, which attracts ])eople frobi
everywhere. While the celebration
of Roanoke Island will be celebrated
by the presentation of a historic
pageant, under the direction of Paul
Green, it will differ completely from
the Oberammegrau sacred pageant,
but there will be a similarity in that
it is planned to make the Roanoke
Island Pageant an institution just as-
is the Oberammegrau pageant.
The celebration will be held at
Manteo, the county-seat of Dare,
which is now as accessible as an.y
other county seat in North Carolina,
Formerly this point on the map of
Eastern North Carolina was so com
pletely isolated that it was supplant
ed in interest by the later settlements
at Jamestown in Virginia and Ply
mouth Rock in Massachusetts.
The three hundredth ansiversary
of the settlement of Jamestown was
celebrated with an exposition at
Norfolk, but it is not planned to
make the celebration at Roanoke Is
land an exposition, or anything like
an exposition, according to Mr. Fear
ing, although the restoration of the
old fort, the chapel and other build
ings give to the historic spot a pe
culiar interest, which will be en
hanced by the presentation of the
Not far distant is the Wright Me
morial, marking the spot where man
fir.st rose into the air in a heavier
than air machine, and this is also a
world renowned spot.
