Winston-Salem Chief of
Police Speaks At
Through the efforts of the stu
dent (ihapel committee, Salem College
students were able Wednesday morn-
nig to enjoy the long awaited priv
ilege of hearing the Chief of the
Police Department of Winston-Salem,
Chief Walter Anderson. Dr. Bond-
thaler introduced him as a “coun^
try born boy, a country reared boy
of Davie County. ” And this couii-
try boy, when he rose to speak, tow
ered way above anyone else in the
auditorium ,and would have been the
jM'j-fect picture of any little lad’s
policeman, or the terror of any
“I have come,” he said, “to dis
cuss a mutual pro.blem of the police
and the people. People have always
wanted to live a peaceful life, and
in order that this may be, they have
found out that rules and regulations
of conduct mnst be enforced. And
it is the police wh6 must enforce
them. The people dejjend on the
police; the police depend on the
people. ’ ’
He continued by giving a short
history of the police organizations
and how the high standards lived up
to tolay were started. “The ideals
and purpose always depend on the
co-operation of the i)eople,” he said.
Come down to see us at work —
don’t come on business though. Pay
:i social call.” He said that the de
partment was made up of men and
women for the protection of youth
and that the employees could either
make or break the people. It should
be a force for good, and not one
that can be gobbled up by political
rings. “However,” he said, “the
police are not super human, and the
days of long coats, glasses, and top
hat are passed.”
In conclusion he gave several ex
amples of familiar cases in the last
several years — always stressing the
help given by the co-operation of
the citizens.

several days in i'rench Urittainy
with her uncle, aunt, and cousin.
Lillian says that the international
situation in France and tJngland

nothing like the crisis that it be
came a few days after sh(! left to
come back to America. The ques

Speaking to the German Club last
Monday afternoon, on his [Ksrsoual
impressions of conditions in Ger
many this summer Mr. John Downs
described that nation a», economical
ly weak, striving townrds a self-
sufficiency which it may attain
through the annexed territory. Ger-
niary, as he saw it, is dominated by
military discipline and nourished on
Naziism. Any remark made openly
about tho Nazi government must be
in praist' of it. Yet, only a small
jwroentage of the German population
belongs to the Nazi party.
Since the Austrian annexation,
Vienna has donned sombre clothes.
Mr. Downs says that Vienna, iniitead
of >eing the gjiyest Eurofxian capi-
tjpl, is now One Of tho soberest and
that there is not much difference be-
twe)n a Vienna nightclub and a
first-class funeral. Disillu.sionment
is in tho Austrians’ faces. They re
sent the Prussians destroying their
conventions and traditions, and Mr.
Downs thinks Germany has a large
job ahead in Nazifyiug Austria.
The attitude of other European
nations towards the German form of
government is antagonistic. The
people merit .sympathy. Mr. Downs
concluded emphatically by .»aying
that if human liberty means any
thing, it wUl be a long time before
the German people can be termed
Mrs Bertita Harding will be at
Salem College, October 11 as the first
lecturer in tho college lecture series.
Mrs. Harding is the well-known au
thor of a number of best sellers,
among them “Phantom Oown,”
“Royal I^rple,” “Golden Fleece,”
and ‘ ‘ Farewell ’Toinette, ’ ’
Mrs. Harding is a true cosmoiwlite.
She is of Rhenish and Hungarian an
cestry and was born in Nuremberg,
Germany with the long paternal
name Bertita Carla Camille Leon:irz,
and the Magyar title of a. Countess
While she was still a baby her
family moved to Me.xico on a dip
lomatic mission for the Emperor
h’ran/. .)ose|)h of Austria. This mis
sion concerned the return of the
llapsburg crown jewels which be
longed to Franz .loseph’s brother,
Maximilian. As a result Bertita

the Shadow of Chapultepec Castle.
Between travels she was educated
by a governess in her early child
hood. Later she attended tho J'rench
Sacre Coeur Convent, and tlien in
this country studied at the Drexel
Lankenau School for girls-in Phila
delphia. She studied .singing under
Federico Flores, Mexico’s greatest
baritone, at the ^)nservatorio Nac-
ional in Mexico City and S[)cnt a
term at the University of Wi.sconsin
as foreign guest student. There .she
met and l>ecame engaged to Jack
Harding of England and Indianaii-
In aditiou to her literary interests,
Mrs. Harding is also keenly inter
osted in music. She can sing in fiv^
languages, and whilt> she was still
very young was expectel to become
a pianist of note. Just a short time
ago, tho Monterrey ()p«ra Company
in Mexico offered Mrs, Harding the
leading role in “Ojirmon. ” When
she refused, the opera was scratched
from the season’s re|H>rtoire.
Much of the success of Mrs. Hard
ing’s books is due to her unique
background and her personal knowl
edge of the characters about whom
she writes. She has given now life
to events and personalities important
in Kiiriipean history. Her pictures
are intimate and profound, but this
is not surprising ,for she grew up in
the shadow of the llapsburg tr.-uli-
