Work On Anntuil
Is Hoped That It Will Be
The last pictures for “Sights and
Insights” have been recently sent to
the engraver, Ann Whaling, editor of
the Annual announced today. The
badminton, tennis, archery, riding,
baseball, basketball, hockey and golf
pictures were taken this last week.
The action camera shots which Mr.
Oerter has been taking of athletics,
dances and other events around the
campus will be featured in the an
nual. This is the first time that such
unposed, candid pictures have been
used 80 predominently.
All of the copy for the annual has
been sent long ago to the printing
company, Ann reported. The theme
of the book, of course, remains se
cret, in accordance with tradition,
but she hints that the theme will
follow a modernistic trend. It is
hoped that the annual will be off the
press and ready for distribution dur
ing the first week in May.

Have Highest Average of
Students to Lead the
Aehes to ashes, dust to dust —
and post-mortems on last-semester
grades should be graciously omitted;
but according to statistics, it seems
that the first two years are the hard
est. In the averages of class mem
bers to attain the Honor Roll the
Senior class, with three and a half
years of practice to their advantage,
take the lead with an average of
17.6 per cent. However, they are
very closely followed by their sister
Juniors who averaged 16.7 per cent
in making the Honor Roll.
Sophomores and Freshmen, almost
the game with a 4.2 per cent average
anud 4 per cent average, fall far be
low the upper classmen. Evidently
they are still in the process of adap
ting themselves. As for the business
students, they average 3.8 per cent,

Catholics, Protestants, Jews
of City Air Differences on
Baisis of Mutual
On Tuesday night, February 21,
Catholics, Protestants and Jews of
W'inston-Salem met in the old chapel
at Salem College, for what was pos
sibly the first time in all the history
of this community. Dr. Howard E.
Rondthaler presided over the meet
ing. Father Edward Biss, Rabbi Ed
ward Ellenboger, and Rev. George
Dillinger conducted the discussion.
Breaks in the program were filled
with musical numbers, with Miss
Helen Savage at the piano. Miss
Katherine Snead with the violin, and
Miss Frances Watlington in vocal
The discussions between the speak
ers told of the importance of having
these three integral groups discuss
their problems in the presence of
The speakers referred to the com
mon colonial ancestry of the Ameri
can people. It was pointed out that
Catholic, Protestant and Jew work
ed side by side in making a good
foundatisn on which succeeding
generations were built.
“Here, pup! Nice puppy! Here —
Oh, you poor little creature!” . . .
Did you notice a little stray dog
running around loose and lonesome
ou the campus last week? If you
spoke a kind word to him, he prob
ably nuzzled you and dogged your
footsteps all day. You may even
have been one of the tenderhearted
who brought food out of the dining
loom for him. But the Sophmores
not only fed him — they adopted
Last week Second Floor Alice
Clewell got tired of a dirty little dog
(how he got in nobody knows!), wan
dering pit-a-pat down their halls. If
they could not keep him out, at least
they thought it would be nicer to
have a clean dog — wandering pit-a-
pat down their halls. So twenty
girls and a dog gathered in the tub
room Saturday afternoon, bathed tlie
dog, formally adopted him, and
christened him Mr. Soph-More.
Honored with the title of Chief
Bathers were Eunice Patten, Patty
McNeely, and Ruth Schnedl. They
dirtied up two tubs in the process of
washing — tubs which more squeam
ish bathers vow they will never use
again, because Mr. Soph-More was
a very dirty little dawg.
After his bath Mr. Soph-More was
90 sweet and clean and de-fleaed
that Clewellites decided he was
™ghty nice to have around. While
they were trying to decide what to
do with him Chubbie Hayes chanced
ilong and decided for them that her
inothej’ and father in town would be
tickled (T) to death to adopt this
'harming and well-behaved young
gentleman. So Chubbie called her
Jather to come after her and all sec
ond floor hung out of the windows
to see how Mr. Hayes was going to

Mu Alpha Theta
Sixteen New Members
Tuesday night the Mu Alpha
Theta initiated sixteen new mem
bers into its ranks. The affair was
a banquet, the place was the recrea
tion room of Bitting Building, and
the time was six o ’clock. The place-
cards were decorated with mathe.
matical signs and symbols. There
were candles on each table for four
and little American flags to celebrate
George Washington’s birthday were
on each person’s plate. Quite an
attractive and delicious, as well as

“The SaJemite” in this issue uses
for the first time a new method of
head lining: the streamline method.
This typo ha,s been used by many
city newspapers for the last few
years and it has been found to be
most successful. The advantage
whicli this type has over the old
type, which included pyramid and
step-off heads, with more uniform
balance, is that the headline is more
easily and rapidly constructed. Be
cause of the lack of uniformity there
is no careful counting of unity and
half-units in the new headlines.
They are not condensed into the
proper number of units, so that the
meaning is misleading or obscure.
Stream-lined headlines are printed in
larger type, with more space be
tween the lines, so that it is easy
for the eye to follow swiftly across
the column and for the mind to grasp
the meaning. This new type sweeps
away all of the obstructions of the
old type head and concentrates upon
getting the meaning across in simple
language, large clear type so that
“he who runs may read” and also
so that “she who writes may run”
Many college newspapers have
adopted this stream-line method.
The Emory “Wheel” has received
much publicity because of their
successful use of it.
Real in Life is
a Purpose of Lent
Mr. William Turner, Episco
pal Minister Speaks at
Y. P. M.
In expanded chapel Wednesday
Mr. William Turner, pastor of St
Paul’s Episcopal Church, spoke t(
Salem College students on the pur
poses of Lent. He opened his discus
sion by suggesting that the power o'
Christ is like heat, warming anf
cheering everyone who cornea withii
“W^e should try to find somethin'
real in life; that is one purpose o
Lent. The Lenten period may some
times become superficial, it is some
thing that has been coming for nine
teen hundred years. It may or ma^
not be observed, as each individua
sees fit, and the church very oftei
gives suggestions about the matte
of self denial.”
Here Mr. Turner made referencef
to three trombone players in a band
who knew no music; they could onh
hold a horn. A great many people
today — even some ministers — go
through life substituting; existing
but getting nothing out of life.
“Our Lord,” said Mr. Turner,
“was a man of laughter. We often
think of him only as a man of Bor
row and grief, but he was often rad
iant with happiness . . . He is present
always, in the midst of joy and hap
piness as well as in times of need.
Lent is a time for learning to know
Christ. ’ ’ ^
In summing up, Mr. Turner said
Lent assumes the significance of
fasting, instruction, and penitance.
The learning of the centrality of
Christ — not an arduous doing —
makes the difference between exis
tence and living.
Deans of Women Meet In
A conference of the National As-
ciation of the Deans of Women,

ciation and is concerned with the
major problems of deans of Amer
ican- Colleges. These problems are

ing the function of religion, physical
education, social affairs, and coni-
muiiity life upon the school.
Y. Adopts A New Alaskan
Fritz Petluska, an Alaskan orphan
boy in the Moravian Mission at
Bethel, Alaska, has been the protege
of the Salem Y, W. C. A. for a num
ber of years. Fritz is now seveu-
teen and able to support himself, and
since he will be leaving the orphan
age soon, the Y will no longer con
tribute to liis support. In addition
to helping with his living expenses,
the Y has sent gifts to him every
Christmas. Last Christmas their
present to IVitz was a hunting knife.
Recently they received p, letter from
him thanking them for all that they
had done. Fritz writes an interest
ing letter and expresses himself well
in English, which is a foreign lan
guage for him. He says:
I want to thank you for the hunt
ing knife you sent me for Christmas.
I like it very mneh. I also want to
thank yon for paying for my staying
here. I am very thankful for all
you have done for me. I am leaving
this home very soon. I am going to
