A SUCGESSFUL
EXPERHflENT
The privilege of having a buffet supper served out on the
lawn in front of the gym during intermission of the Junior-
Senior dance was granted as an experiment by the proper au
thorities. This unique intermission activity added to the pleas
ure of every dancer and was properly appreciated. The whole
group obeyed all of the rgulations and co-operated completely
with the administration.
The outdoor intermission was extremely successful. The
Junior and Senior classes are to be commended for not taking
advantage of the privilege and for setting such a splendid ex
ample for the oncoming upper-classman. To the Administration
we wish to say that we are grateful for having been allowed to
use this plan for the first time.

On April 28, at eight o’clock, John Mason Brown began
his lecture in Memorial Hall. At eight-thirty, a) few last minute
(or last hour), stragglers were still arriving. From eight until
eight-^thirty a constant stream of people were entering the Hall,
disturbing both the audience and the speaker.
Although the time of the lecture was earlier than usual,
all Salem students knew of the change in time, and the great
est number of late-comers, were Salem girls. This tardiness
results from carelessness only; but to prevent disturbing the
lecturer and the audience, why not be there when the lecture
starts ?
