DELPHIC DAMSELS TO VISIT HOME TOWN
FAMOUS GRECIAN
CHORUS TO LECTURE
AT SALEM COLLEGE
Will Tell of New York
Elxperiences
The. Delphic Damsels will lecture
at an informal gathering in the
assembly room of the Library, feun-
day afternoon, May 15 at 2:30. This
is the second of the informal lec
tures in the series planned by Miss
Siewers, librarian.
Of double interest is this program
because of the tremendous acclaim
which the Delphic Damsels have re
ceived during the run of George
Kaufwoman’s latest play, “The
Grandeur which was Greece’s,
which has just closed in New York.
Alfred Fontaine and Lynn Lunt
were also in the cast.
Miss Maynard, Miss Zachary, Miss
Weaver, Mrs. Gurlee, Miss C. M.
Stockton, Miss Read, Miss J. Knox,
Miss McAnally, Miss Atkinson, Miss
Blair, Miss Byrd and Miss Turling-
toon formed the Greek chorus in the
recent hit. The chorus crooned
grievous songs' after each new death
was reported on the stage by the
panting messenger. After each song
Miss Bead and Miss Byrd executed
a few very subtle swing steps, dram
aturgically important because they
provided relief from the intensely
tragic situation and heightened the
suspense of the plot.
The members of the thorus will be
most happy to answer most of the
questions which might be asked
jibout their recent experiences in
Xew Vork. This occasion provides
ani]>le opportunities—both cultural
and educational—and it is the ex
press wish of the Damsels for all
Salemites to be there.

ELUSIVE MADAME
MIMI ATKINSKI NOW
IN NEW YORK
Former Delphic Damsel
“Wants to be Alone”
The editor of the “Salemite” re
ceived the following cable from our
foreign correspondent now in New
York City:
“Have had delightful interview
with famous Delphic Damsel, Mad
ame Mimi Atkinski. She received
me in her Park Avenue penthouse
draped daintily about one of those
what-do-you-call-them? — French
lounges. She wore trailing chifton
with streamers.
The damsel made a charming pic
ture. She held an armful of beau
tiful Shasta daisies tied with a gen
erous bow of pink satin ribbon. The
color motif of soft pastel shades was
rex>eated in the delicate rose tints
of the ribbon which was entwined
about the Delphic maiden’s dark
braids.
To my impertinent questions she
answered coyly that her time was no
longer her own; for, of course, she
really had to think of her public.
She dismissed me with a sweet smile
saying that she “wanted to be
alone. ’ ’
When I left she insisted that I
take a daisy to press in my memory
book..
“But my deah,” she said, “you
really must take something, you
know. Perhaps you would prefer a
chiffon streamer, yest”
ANNETTE McNEELY
EXPELLED
Special Council Meeting
Lets Student Out
Wednesday morning, March 30,
1938, in chapel, it was the painful
duty of the student council to an
nounce to the ptudent body the ex
pelling of Annette McNeely from
Salem College.
Several days before Annette had
been seen on the lower campus seat
ed on the bridge donated by the class
of 1930 quietly studying her lessons.
A group of innocent and trusting
freshmen, who did not mark her
presence—or indeed if they did were
entirely unsuspicious of their future
student government president —
strolled by. Suddenly they were
aware of a bulk springing behind
them. An abrupt shove—a splash—
Naomi Rosenbaum was thrown into
the creek. On top of her tumbled
Mildred Kelly, her head struck a
rock and she was cracked. Nancy
Suitor, startled, fled wide-eyed from
the pursuing Annette. To no avail;
for the manical girl quickly caught
her by her hair and she came rolling

OFFERED THIS SPRING
Debate “Pipes Vs. Cigars”
To Be Held
The administration of Salem Col
lege takes great pleasure in the an
nouncement to the student body of
a new course, “Smoking Pltiquette,”
to be offered, beginning on the first
day of April, 1938. That well-known
authority, Mr. Arlee Curlee, who has
had post-graduate as well as under
graduate training in this field, has
kindly consented to conduct the ad
vanced class, which will bo held in
the Green Room on Tuesday, Thurs
day, and Friday mornings from 8:30
to 9:00. Begining classes will be un
der the care of Miss Ruby Maynard
at the Infirmary, during hours! In
addition to these classes there will
be one laboratory a week — on
Wednesday morning from 11:00 to
12:00, under the able direction of
Mr. Boy Campbell. Lturing this time,
various brands of cigarettes will be
dissected, carefully studied, diagram
med, and labeled.
All students are cautioned to con
fine their practice and extra-credit
work to Front Campus at all times,
particularly on Sunday, and to sign
up for practice in the gymnasium.
Last is the announcement of a
special Smoking Chapel which will
be conducted by various members of
the enthusiastic faculty each Sunday
evneing from 6 to C;:jO. (It should
be noted that this chapel will replace
the customary Sunday night supper;
but it is hoped that the substiution
will more greatly benefit all concern
ed.) Some of the subjects to be
presented during the remainder of
the term are:
Miss Mayme Porter: “Why Luckies
are kinder to the Throat.”
Mr. Noble McEwen: “The Psycho-

NOTED LECTURERTO
SUBSTITUTE FOR
JUNIOR-SENIOR
DANCE
By Unanimous Vote of
Both Classes
Salem College is very fortunate in
securing Colonel Puff-Puff Alknight
of Dook University to speak April
30. Colonel Alknight is' being
brought here through the efforts of
the Junior Class.
In the past, it has been the cus
tom of the Junior Class to eptertain
the Seniors, usually with a dance.
This year, however, the dance is to
be done away with. Representatives
from each of the above-mentioned
classes met, and after serious dii?-
cussion decided that the spending of
such a large amount of money for
one night .’s frivolous fun was indeed
a wasteful act and that the same
money could be used to a much
greater advantage.
After much deliberation it was
decided that the students would
profit more by uedng the mpney to'
sponsor a series of lectures by an
illustrious educator. When this sug-

Salem School of Syncc^ted
Swingsters Have Usual
Swing Session
'Last Thursday at 4:00 A. M. the
usual swing session took place in the
concert hall of the music building..
As always there was a full house and,
of course, standing room only in the
vestibule.
For the opening selection Miss
Anna Withers played the lovely old
classic St. Louis Blues by Kark-elert
on the new Hammond organ; Mr.
Bair, who is the strongest and most
recent competitor of that great
crooner Alfalfa, took every other
chorus with such a hot-cha-cha and
hi-de-ho that Cab Calloway has
threatened to file suit for infringe

SALEM DATE BUREAU
TO OPEN
Headquarters In Dean’s
Dean’s Office
By unanimous decision of Salem,
deans it has been decided that a date
bureau should be opened for all stu
dents. Miss Lawrence has decided
that Salem girls do not have half
enough dates and she wants every
student to go out at least six times
a week. She thinks it would be a
great step in raising he grades of all
students and the faculty would no
longer be bothered with the problem
of finding work to assign because
now that everybody will ,be dating
no one will have time for such minor
details as term papers and special
reports.
Headquarters are to be establish
ed in Miss Lawrence’s office and all
students are asked, to come by and
state their preference as to what
type of man they desire. In order
to save time here are the questions
you will be asked in case you want
to think them over before making
your application:

SNAPPY LECTURE
“Spring Study Detrimental
To Health of Growing
Young Women” isJTopic
Thursday'evening, March 26, at
eight o’clock. Dr. Pfohl gave an en
lightening lecture to the faculty o;f
Salem College and to representatives
from Vassar, Smith, Wellesley, and
Sweet Briar on the Mibject, ‘ ‘ Spring
Study is Detrimental to the Heiilth
of Growing Young Women.”
Dr. Pfohl told of, a startling reve-
lationi made recently by scientists,
namely, that in the spring a very
definite change takes place in the
organic cohstitiition of college stud
ents. “This change is accompanied
by incessant exhalation, involuntary
yawns and continual restlessness.
'The circulatory system undergoes a
complete reorganization, and the
lady is in a state of constant adap
tation to the sudden change of
temperature. ’ ’
Dr. Pfohl continued his lecture by
saying that psychologists and psy
chiatrists have discovered that the
mind also undergoes a change. At
this time of the year the girls should
be treated with utmost care, hu
mored, and given complete freedom.
“The brain, which is at this time
in its most weakened condition,
should never be taxed. There must
be absolutely no studying! ’ ’ Dr.
Pfohl cited specific eases in which
girls have been known to become ill,
lose their minds, or even attempt
suicide when term impers or large
quantities of studying were assigned.
Concluding his speech, he said:
“Nervous conditions which continue
throughout life, result from spring
term study. If teachers would only
listen to and ,take the warning of
the latest medical achievements, the
future men and women of America
would be a much stronger generation,
both physically and mentally.”

SALEM CAMPUS TO BE
MODERNIZED
Salem Hacks Her Trees
Northdown and O’Breen have re
cently completed the plans for the
complete remodeling of Salem’s an
tiquated campus. Modernity is the
word. Cement, glass, steel and iron
will replace the present jumbles of
rocks, vines and trees. Soon there
will be a general clean-up week dur
ing which the periwinkle vine, which
has literally taken May Day Dell,
will be uprooted and burned, and
during which all trees over twenty-
five years old will be felled. Also
workers will straighten our disord
erly winding paths and prepare
them for paving. Salem creek will
no longer flow uselessly, for its
power will be conserved and util
ized at the dam to be constructed
near the little bridge.
There are rumors that the archi
tects have drawn sketches for a
huge stadium in our natural arena.
Lover’s Leap will be the site for
the gate where crowds will throng
for a chance to see future athletic
feats- (Incidentally,. it has been,
whispered that a motorcycle race is
scheduled for next May 1st). The
hillside will shine with bright neon
chapel announcements arid billboards
to advertise Pierrette performances.
Salem will be ultra modern. April
Pool!
