OUR ADVERTISERS
The stores and firms who have ad.s in this issue of our
paper have played a large part in making this paper possible.
Without the patronage of our advertisers our paper could not
be nearly so large. Advertisements do pay, and we want you,
the ones for whom the Salemite is published, to help us con
vince our patronizers that the ads do influence you in selecting
the places you shop. This editorial is not meant to preach a
lesson, but to ask you to express your appreciation for the ads
when you shop. When you buy something in a store, please
mention as you leave, that you have read their ad in the “Sale
mite” and that all of us like to know where to shop!

NOTICE TO
NEW STUDENTS
A number of the new students have asked about working
on the Salmeite Staff this year. The editprs are delighted at
this interest and plan to do something about it immediately.
Next week in the Salemite full plans for try-outs will be pre
sented. Watch for it, new students!
—H. McA.
Obedience is our universal duty
and destiny; wherein whoso will not
bend must break.
Whether stones are thrown or not,
a man makes a mistake in living in
a glass houso.
A new form of salute which wom
en are to execute in Adolph Hitler’s
presence at social functions was re
ported from Berlin on August 24.
The new salute is made by raising
the right hand , shoulder high, with
a bent elbow, th,e saluter at the same
time slightly inclining the head.
Never hesitate to praise good
work, no matter where, or by
whom it is done. Praise is often the
only reward that good work gets.
It is not he that reads most, but
he that meditates most on Divine
truth, that will prove the choicest,
wisest, strongest Christian.
Indulge in procrastination, and in
time yon will come to this, that be
cause a thing ought to be done there
fore you can’t do it.
TEN OUTSTANDING
MAGAZINE ARTICLES
SEPTEMBER, 1938
(Selected By a Council of
Librarians)
“The Unserved Millions”
By Helen Hall and Paul Kellog
in “Survey Graphic”
Two participants in the Recent
National Health Conference at which
a National Health Program was an
nounced report on the most signifi-
can event in American medical his
tory.
“The Doctors Face Revolt”
By Avis D. Carlson in ‘ ‘ Harpers ’ ’
Why the organized medical oppo
sition to the group medicine on a
contract basis? asks Mrs. Carlson —
and describes some notable experi
ments in th!s area and how the medi
cal association fought them.
“Stalin Is Russia’s Worst Czar.”
By Wm. H. Chambrlain in
“American Mercury”
The terrorism of Czarist Russia is
being vastly overshadowed by the
Stalin-initiated terrorism directed
against all Soviet citizens who might
bo tempted to avail themselves of
the liberties so profusely promised
them. With atrocity following
atrocity, StaLn, combining the pow
er of Tamerlane with the technique
of A1 Capone, has no peer in Rus
sian history.
“Japan and China: Second Year”
By Nathaniel Peffer in “Harpers’
Impressive evidence — military
and financial to the effect that Ja
pan, having bitten off more than she
can chew, is in a desperate position,
as she goes into the second year
of her war.
‘ ‘ An Englishman Looks at the
States. ’ ’
By Graham Hutton in
‘ ‘ Atlantic Monthly”
It takes an outsider to tell us what
we really look like. One of Lon
don’s brilliant young journalists re
ports on his lecture tour over here—
and concludes that America today is,
in some respects, like Europe of the
early 1920’s. Think it overl'
“Cleveland; A City Collapses.”
By Walter Abbot in “Forum.”
No Clevelander dares say the bru
tal truth; Their community is eco
nomically, politically and socially in
collapse; she is a failure as a great
city, with the end of her misery no
where in sight.
“Hypocritical Democracy.”
By Walter A. Terpenning in
‘ ‘ Forum.’ ’
Unless our American democracy
can develop the virtue of self-
criticism, it must go the way of all
unself-critical proud, the way of de
struction. We must learn, as we
have not yet learned, to analysize
the ideals, the forms and the pro
cesses of our so-called democratic
government.
“The Impossible War with Japan.”
By George Fielding Eliot in
“American Mercury”
A war which, by reason of its per
fectly-known military and geograph
ical factors, cannot turn out to the
permanent advantage of either side,
a war between nations so situated
that neither has anything very ser
ious to fear from the other within
its own sphere of influence and ac
tivity, is a war that is not going to
take place. '
“Rackets and Labor.”
By George E. Sokolsky in
“Atlantic Monthly”
Until all unions are prepared to
open their accounts and to force
their leaders to submit to democratic
controls, racketeering will flourish.
For secrecy breeds racketeering and
makes money price in American la-
bor-union activities too tempting for
weak men in possession of great
power.
“What Would Germany Fight
Witht”
By Wilson Woodside in “Harpers.”
No nation can wage war for long
without steel, coal, and other basic
raw materials. Mr. Woodside shows
conclusively that Germany’s supplies
are inadequate for a protracted war
against major enemies.
aVT IPaVNID€M
REALIZATION
The lonelines.s before you came
Heart-breaking through its weight —
Still bore no trace of bitterness,
Wanting you, soon or late
The loneliness now you are here
I hardly understood,
The love I thought you would.
I''^iitil I knew you’d never feel
—Elizabeth Gray.
ELEGY
Alone and disenchanted of my dreams,
Outliving all desire, I wait apart.
Remembering ancient glory. Within this darkness
I wear a crown more withered than my heart.
t
Save for pain the world is empty;
Past my listening senses pound ■
These vacant days. I am waiting
For a shadow, for a whispered sound.
Outside, the bare trees bend in agony
And the wind shrieks out its grief.
Alone, upon a skeleton branch.
Clings a last reluctant leaf.
—Alexander Pushkin.
« * * *
In the quiet sunlight of September
The harbor’s top is blond and burnished stone,
Any swimmer who cuts that width of stillness ,
Is scorched with cold to the man-ow of the bone.
The tide no longer rustles; only waiting
Holds it as a gleam holds dormant bells.
It gives its calm attention to a pink crab
Or to the- far-down pearl of mussel shells.
The swimmer floats over henna sand and bi-own sand,
The calico print of every pebble is clear.
He feels the faint hostility of winter
Flavoring the water with a/ fear.
—^Elizabeth Bohm.
CONCERNING STUDENT
HEALTH
Mrs. Higgins of the Science De
partment calls attention to a report
of a survey of health of college stu
dents which showed that Americaiji
colleges are not properly concerned
with building .sound bodies to house
educated minds.
This was the gist of a report pre
sented to the American Youth Com
mission this summer. The report
covered a nation- wide college sur
vey conducted by Dr. Harold S.
Diehl, dean of medical sciences at
the University of Minn., and Dr.
Charles E. Shepard, director of men
students’ health at Stanford Uni.
versity.
Two general classes of health prob
lems affect college students, the re
port states: ' those from deficient
care and education in earlier years,
and those associated with the college
environment itself. To discover
earlier deficiencies, each student,
upon entering, should be given a
thorough medical examination to be
followed by periodic examinations
during succeeding years.
The report revealed these facts,
most startling of which was the
first:
One third of all students entering
the surveyed colleges are found to be
Infected with tuberculosis.
Most colleges were found danger
ously lax in their supervision of such
things as campus eating places,
swimming pools and ventilation. Of
all the colleges surveyed, only 28 in
spected sewerage and garbage dis
posal. _
In only 67 out of 551 colleges did
students have an opportunity to dis
cuss health examinations with phy-
sicans.
The complete college health pro
gram, the re{)ort points out, should
consist of 4 basic factors. A stu
dent health service for individuals,
a campus public health service for
the student body, classroom instruc
tion in health matters, and physical
education as a health activity and
for correction of deficiencies. In gen
eral, financing should bo by means of
term or annual assessments paid by
the students, supplemented when
necessary by funds of the institu
tion.
AIRPORT AT NEW YORK FAIE
New York—In North Beach Air
port, when its rehabilitation is com
pleted at a cost of $15,000,000, the
New York World’s Fair 1939 will
have right at its threshold the finest
sea and land terminal in the United
States. It will also be possible for
seaplanes to land in' Flushing Bay
and taxi right up to the Exposition’s
landing piers at its Boat Basin.
“WORLD” FOR CHILDEEN
New York — The “Children’s
World” at the New York World’s
Fair 1939 may prove to be the most
popular attraction in the 280-acre
Amusement Zone for adults as well
as youngsters. Parents will be able
to leave children in this miniature
world with confidence that they will
be under trained supervision and
have everything to play with their
hearts desire Not only this, the chil
dren will liave opportunity for meals
and repose.
Gardener: “Aren’t you afraid the
birds will eat your seeds! You ought
to put up a scarecrow.”
Gardenerette: “Oh, it’s not worth
it! There’s always one of us in the
garden. ’’
