OPEN FORUM HELD
DURING EXPAND
ED CHAPEL
Thanksgiving Holidays and
Cuts System Discussed
The entire hour of expanded chapel
Wednesday morning was devoted to
a discussion of Thanksgiving holi
days and the cuts system. Dorothy
Hutaff presented a report, made by
the faculty and a student committee
after careful deliberation and com
parison with other schools. She said
that there was a possibility that we
should have four days for Thanks
giving or one day. The condition
for four days was the fact that no
cuts could be taken just before and
after the holidays. After all stu
dents showed willingness to follow
the decision of the majority, the stu
dent body voted unanimously for the
four day holiday.
Following the vote. Miss Coving
ton explained the change in the reg
ulations concerning cuts which will
be in effect next year, The main
provisions are as follows: During
the first semester, freshman and
new students will have three cuts,
not over one in a class. Upper class
men and second semester freshmen
who have an average of A minus,
will receive thirteen cuts; A. four
teen cuts; A plus, fifteen cuts; B
minus, nine cuts; B, ten cuts; B
plus, eleven; C minus, five Cuts; C,
six cuts; C plus seven cuts. The
number of cuts next year are then
to be determined.

SALEM’S POST OFFICE
HISTORY
Has Been Located On Main
Street For Several Years
Salem, as a community and as a
college, has, as we are all more than
well aware, a long and checkered
and interesting history in various
fields. And have you ever wondered
what is its post office-history ? Well,
I did; and here’s what I could find
when I hunted up six “likely
sources of information” on the cam
pus. All six of these “sources”
were people, and just think what I
would have found if I had gone to
the old “Salemites” and to their
predecessors The Academy and to
the five other people whom my six
suggested that I go to see; but this
article had to be finished before next
week, so I had to stop with this:
Miss Sallie Vest gave me a whole
page of “way-back” history. She
went even back before her own time
to tell me that the little Public
School Music Building, that was
torn down last spring to make room
for our new library, was once the
post office for the town of Salem.
Salem College or, and, and Salem
Academy has always gotten its mail
from the Salem town post-office; so
our mail once came from The Little
Red School House. The first post
office that Miss Vest remembers, as
a little girl, was in the building
which is between the Arden Farm
Store and the Widow’s House. The
post office was in the northern end
of the building; there was a drug
store in the southern end, and the
commissioner’s office was upstairs.
Then for a while the post office was
in the building with big columns
which is next to Welfare’s. At one
time it was in the Belo House, and
later it moved up Main Street, still
on that side of the street, to about
the middle of the coffee pot block.
From there it was moved across the
street to the middle of the block in
which Truelove’s Dry Cleaning Plant
now is. Mrs. Meinung’s father, Mr.
Ormsby, was postmaster while the
post office was there, and he was
postmaster for awhile after it moved
back across the street to the building
next to Truelove’s, which was then
a drug store. And Salem’s post
office’s last move, to date, was when,
on June 1, 1927, it moved into the
little building across the street where
it is now. A Mr. Jones owned the
property on which that group of little
stores stands; and a Mr. Fogle
bought the property, tore down the
stores that were there, and built the
present ones. The first thing to oc
cupy his new stores was Salem’s post
office.
For years and years Ch^^rlie Sheeks,
a negro employee here, has gotten
our mail from the town post office
and brought it to the campus. He
used to bring it down from the
building next to Truelove’s, and he

DR. GROVES
A little man dodged the welcome
committee and wandered around the
campus, Friday evening, February
the eleventh, because he fooled us
and came on the bus instead of the
train. This lone man, who was ac
tually Dr. Groves, found his way to
the recreation room of Louisa Wil
son Bitting Building where he gave
an enlightening lecture to juniors
and seniors. His topic for the first
talk was “The Approach to Mar
riage” and the next topic will be
“Preparation for Marriage.”
The lecture culminated in an ear
nest discussion during which stu
dents presented problems and ques
tions about love, courtship, and mar
riage to Dr. Groves for his wise so
lution and sound advice.

Now that the first crocuses are up
and spring no longer seems to hope
lessly far away, it cannot be out of
order to bring up a subject that will
soon be of tremendous importance to

Exciting things have been going
on behind our very backs. While the

to books and things, Margaret Briggs
and her committees have been mys

and planning and pulling all sorts
of rabbits out of hats.
First of all, the pageant, which
is Brigg’s literary offspring, is fin
ished and ready for action. The
dances are to be under the direction
of Miss Grace Carpenter, assisted by
Edith Rose. B. 0. Dunford, of the
graduating class of ’37 is composing
original music for the occasion. The
making o fthe costumes is to be tak
en up as a project of the Home
Economics Club of which Charlotte
King is president.
It looks as if the situation is very
well under control!
Harmonious, a musical society in
Bergen, Norway, has been given
200,000 kronen by the estate of Ed
