IT ’S UP
If someone were to ask you, “What sort of discipline and
g[0vernment do you hav6. at your college?”, you would answer
immediately and proudly; “Why at Salem- we have student
self-government- Of cours6, we have a Student Council which
we elect as a representative and executive body, but 6ach stu
dent is considered morally responsible to herself, to her ovra
conscience fir her actions; Blach girl pledges herself to accept
this responsibility when she becomes a member of Salem’s Stu
dent Government Association.”
We would all probably answer that question in words
very similar to those. But how often do we stop td consider
these words aiid their significance in our daily lives at Salem?
Do we, when debating w;th ourselves whether Or not to break
some minor rul6 stop to consider: “If I do this, I will be vio
lating my pledge; I will be failing myself and my school.” —
or is our only consideration this: “If I do this, will I get
Let’s stop and think of this responsibility sometimes,
Salemites, for it is a great one, and one which, if we accept it
and live up to it completely and fully, will do much to prepare
us for the responsibilities and duties we will meet after we
SUSTAINED — PLEASE
“And were you pleased?” they asked of Helen in Hell.
“Pleased?” answered she, “when all Troy’s towers fell;
And dead were Priam’s sons, and lost his throne?
And such a war was fought as none had known;
And even the gods took part; and all because
Of me alone! Pleased? I should say I was!’*
—Lord Dunsary in the London Mercury.
“If I were a. queen,
What would I do ?
I’d make you king,
And I’d wait on you.”
“If I were a king.
What would I do?
I’d make you queen,
For I’d marry you.”
I WILL MAKE YOU BROOCHES
I will make you brooches and toys for your delight
Of bird-song at morning and star-shine at night
I will make a palace fit for you and me
Of green days in forests and blue days at sea.
I will make my kitchen, and you shall keep your room,
Where white flows the river and bright blows the broom,
And you shall wash your linen and keep your body white
In rainfall at morning and dewfall at night.
And this shall be for music when no one else is near,
The fine song for singing, the rare song to hear!
That only I remember, that only you admire,
Of the broad road that stretches and the roadside fire.
—Robert Louis Stevenson.
Around the Dial
Three interesting symphony pro
grams may be heard over the air each
week this winter. One is the Ford
Sunday Evening Hour over Columbia
from nine until ten o’clock. This
season the aeries will introduce Sev
eral gueSt artist's and conductors new
to the program, as well te many
soloists aild directors \t'ho have
proved great favoriets in former
years. According to present plans,
Eugene Ormandy, of the Mila-
delphia Symphony, ivill 'iOAduct
through Octobfer and the guests ar
tists will be Bidu -Sayao, soprano,
October ft; Kiehard Cr'ooks, tenor,
October 16; and Lawrence Tibbett,
baritone, October 23.
Another important CBS presenta
tion will be the ninth consecutive
season of Sunday afternoon con
certs by the New York Philhiarm6ii-
Ic-Symphony Orchestra. The first
broadcast is scheduled for OetftbOr
23. John Barbirolli continues as reg
ular conductor; Georges Ettesco will
be guest leader, and Deems Taylor
will again be the intermission com-
The NBC Symphony Ofcheatri
with Arturo ToscAiiini conducting
will begin on October ^ 15 and con
certs will be broadcast each Satur
Returning to the NBC networks
for its eighth consecutive year on
December 3 the Metropolitan O^era
broadcasts will be heard ^ach Sat
urday afternoon during the entire
supposed to go to all Of them. The person calling the meeting
Warns all members that the roll will be checked and it is rather
embarassing to be expected to be at three places at one time.
After we get to the meeting, the president waits ten minutes
for the other members to come struggling in from the Green
Room or the post office. The few present spend the other
twenty minutes discussing a dance they will have in the Spring.
This condition might be easily remedied if each organization
had a definite time designated for its periodical ineetings- And
if each would begn meetings promptly, considering only those
things of immediate concern to its members.

ADDITIONS TO THE
What has happened to our Tennis Court? Righteous indig
nation wells up when we go down and find not the smooth, hard
courts to which we are accustomed, but gravel two inches thick!
Who can restrain an exclamation (to put it mildly), when she
is all ready with her best backhand only to see the ball bounce
and veer cock-eyedly to the right? Or who can keep her sun
ny disposition long when ball after ball comes over the net,
hits the ground with a sickening thud, and then rolls right
We don’t know whose idea gravel was, but we object.
Give us back our old courts, please 1

Thanks are due the various town churches which provide
means of transportation for Salem girls wishing to attend serv
ices at their respective churches. This expression of co-opera
tion and interest gives them a warm feeling of welcome at
their own church.
This is*a thoughtful courtesy to those girls who would
like to attend their own church, but who usually go to a nearer
one because they do not wish to bother with a taxi.

“My Brother, A. E. Housman,”
by Lawrence Housman. This book
contains a memoir, several unpub
lished poems, the poet’s letters, and
several note books. It tells the read
er a great deal that is engaging and
essential about the personality be
hind the “Shropshire Lad.” It is
perhaps more revealing than a form
al biography would be.
“A Ijetter to Robert Frost and
Others,” by Robert S. Hillyer. This
is Hillyer’s first book of poems since
he won the Pulitzer Prize in 1934.
It contains seven letters in rhymed
couplets addressed to Robert Frost,
Charles Townsend Copeland, James
B. Munn, Petyon Randolph Camp
bell , Bernard de Voto, the poet’s
son, and Queen Nefefti.
‘ ‘ Germany ’g Colonial Problem ’ ’ by
Gustav Kurt Johannaen, It dis
cusses the necessity for redistribut
ing the world’s raw material re
sources. A timely book.
MONEY MAKES THE MARE GO
A four-page paper — or had you noticed? The sad, .sad
truth is that running a paper requires something more substan
tial than ideas — and the “SaJemite” this year started its
season of publication with about one sixth of the usual capital
with which the paper has to start. We ran a six page paper
for the first three weeks — unwisely. But we wanted the
larger paper and we know you did too. We may be able to run
a six-page paper every other week. If this is at all possible, it
will be done. The Business Staff is busy scheming and planning
drastic measures which will be followed shortly. Tjet’s hope
that soon, very soon, they can tell us that we will have the ideal
combination of news plus cash and thereby will allow us to
present to you again the two pages which are missing in this
issue! Until then, that happy day, just read between the lines.
The speaker at vespers this Sun
day night will be Miss Elizabeth
Ijames, who is connected with the
girl sbouts of Winston-Salem. Ves
pers will be at 6:30 in the old chapel.
