SOPHOMORE COURT
RULES SUPREME
Most High Judge of Su
preme Court Judges Trial;
Freshmen Acquited on
Promise of Good
Behavior
The Supreme Session of the Su
perior Sopliomore Court held council
Wednesday night, September 28 at
seven o’clock to try and to condemn
capital offenders in the freshman
class. A summons issued Tuesday
night ordered all freshmen to assem
ble Wednesday at 5:15 on the ath
letic field for preliminary jurisdic
tion.
I’romjrtly at 5:15 they ui>peared
— ninety-three strong in chain-gang
Jile, and dressed according to court
orders: no make-up, hair rolled up
in paper, dark skirts (with slips
showing all around), one low-heeled-
stocking-foot, and one high-heeled-
aock foot. For forty-five minutes
they bowed, scraped, and chorused
praises to the mighty Sophs. Then
they were conducted by their guards
to the dining-room where their table
manners —■ (a little slowed-np by
the absence of fork and spoon), and
eating habits were carefully super
vised by the watchful Sophomores.
At seven, offenders fearfully filed
into the court room in the old chapel
to await judgment. The most High
Judge of Supreme Court, Madeleine
llayes, garbed in solemn robe and a
spectacularly billowing wig took her
place on the bench. Behind her
stalked the jurors also impressive
ly dressed in black robes and caps,
the re.-it ijf the prosecutors took their
places as gu:irds in the audience to
keep order. Court deputy Eleanor
(’arr called the court to order. Her
Tfonor tlie Judge knocked three times
with her gavel. Mumblings hushed
and silence filled the court.
“First offender, fake the stand!”
shouted the deputy ■— then second
ofTender, third ofFt>nder, and through
the list. Before court ajourned the
audience had seen, among other
things, Mr. McEwen receiving a stir
ring proposal (which he rejected!),
an exhibition match of two fresh
men wrestling with temptation, three
offenders screaming like gold-fish,
a tobacco auctioneer — in fact two
tobacco auctioneers, the Civil War
being fought, a tennis game in the
air, a bowling match — and a very
enlightening and loyal attitude on
the iwrt of certain offenders who

GIRLS UVE IN HOME
ECONOMICS PRAC
TICE HOUSE
Groups of Three and Four
TsJce Turns Living In
Management Home
“Living in the Home Management
Houst' is work!” says Evelyn Mc
Carty, Bill h^ilton, and Elizabeth
Hedgecock, the girls who are living
in the Lizora Hanes Practice House
for three weeks this semester. But
they agree that it is fascinating
work — fascinating because what
girl has not yearned at some time
or another for a home of her own
where she can try out her pet con
coctions in the skillet and put into
practice her secret or maybe not so
secret theory of living! And that
is what these girls are doing now,
putting into practice their own ideas
of home management. They are the
first group of senior Home Kconom-
ics majors to live in the Lizora Hanes
House this year. Each year seniors
majoring in Home Economics are di
vided into groups of threes and
fours, and take turns living in the
Home Management House.
\Vhen a group of three lives in
the Home Management House, one
girl is hostess, one head cook, and
one assistant cook. The hostess is
the head of the house, and is in
charge of the planning of meals and
marketing.. She is the one who sees
that the diet is a balanced one.
The bead cook rules supreme in
the kitchen. In the words of the
head cook for this week, Elizabeth
Hedgecock, “The hostess says what
to do, the chief cook does, and the
assistant cook does what the chief
cook tells her to do.”
Mistakes are made, the girls say—

WAR OR PEACE DE
PENDS ON FRANCE
SAYSDR.ANSCOMBE
Hitler Has Accomplished 17
of 20 Things Necessary for
Complete German
Restoration
Eighteen years ago an .\ustrian
citizen named Hitler wrote a book
listing twenty things that must be
accomplished for complete Germrin
restoration. Seventeen of these
have been carried through, said Dr.
Anscombe in his lecture on the jnes-
ent Czechoslovakian situation which
he discussed before Salem College
and Academy students last Wednes
day morning at expanded chap'l.
Ilitler, said Dr. Anscombe, res[>ect-
ed everything German, and wished
that the German people might regain
their former place of imiwrtance in
Europe.
Five years ago, in 1!););!, Hitler be
came a German citizen by obtaining
an office in one of the small prov
inces. Soon afterwards he was iden
tified with the Nationalist Socialist
j):irty and was jailed for urging Ger-
nmns to revolt against enemies.
Shortly after he was release, he be
came Chancellor of Germany.
When Hitler wrote his book, said
Dr. Anscombe, he had not imagined
himself the leader by whom the
twenty jmints were to b(> accomplish
ed and he is not eager for [K-rsonal
glory but he “sums up the desires,
ambitions, and wills of the German
l’eoi>le. ’ ’
Czechoslovakia was created.by the
.\llie.s after the World War in order
to humiliate (Jerniany. Silesia witli
the largest sujiply of mineral re
sources in the world was taken from
Germany and divided between Po
land and (’zechoslovakia. The .\llies
took from .\>istria, the province of
Roh(‘mi:i an d .Moravia which had
of the industrial plants owned
by .\ustria. Kutheria was taken
fron» Hungary and Teschen from
I’oland.
TIu' ('zechoslovakian ]K)pulation
consists of (fzechs, Slavs, Magyars,
I’oles, and Germans. It is not the
will of Hitler to incor[M)rate the en
tire- Czschoslovak state with Ger
many. He wants a pure Gernuin
state.
The (!zechs will eventually have
to surrender to Germany said Dr.
\nscombe, because their land is al
most completely surrounded by Ger
many !ind is dependent u()on her for
commerce. Hitler and the Germans
want the Czech territory that they
have demanded because, by gaining
possession of it, they will add many
Germans to the present i>opulation
and they will own Silesia and all
its resources.
Dr. Anscombe said that he was
confident that the present unrest in
Europe was due to the steady in
crease of German population and de
crease of the French. France will
not disarm for that reason, and, from
fear, has allied herself with Ru.ssia.
France will determine whether the
crisis will end in war peace. Ger
many, he says, can not win a war
even though she has Ttaly behind
her. England is still powerful on
the seas and commands stragetic
points everywhere. Italy and Ger
many, moreover do not have suffi
cient natural resources.

“There is fantasy here, and farce

tragedy ahead. From this short, un

charm and realitv.
