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. —B. L.

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 ? —M. L. P.
