TO SING AT
WINSTON-SALEM. N. C., FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8. 1939.
Number 1 L
Dr. Grafflin Delivers
Tuesday evening Dr. Sam Grafflin,
of Whit« Plains, N. Y. spoke in the
recreation room of Bitting building.
Dr. Grafflin wag brought to Salem
by the Freshman “ Y” commission.
He began hia talk by saying that,
in speaking to youth, the first thing
to make clear is the simplicity of
the picture of the world. There is
no such thing as “changing youth
in a changing world;’’ youth never
changes. Four areas will be en
countered: j>olities and taxation, la
bor, worship and culture, and indus
try. There are onl}' five human
urges: food, love, money and goods,
power with the right to rise, and
fame. All the sources of wealth
which have come down through the
ages are: fish, metal and oil, lumber,
and farming. Then there are five
realms which furnish the outlets in
everybody’s life: job, association,
worship, recreation, service. If we
keep the five following things be
fore us as examples, we can never
go wrong, they are: the ten com
mandments, the Sermon on the,
Mount, the sixth chapter of Ephes
ians, the twelfth chapter of Hom
ans, and the Lord Jesus.
TOe world, said Dr. Grafflin, is in
a mess. The only safe place for the
Jew is a place where the King
James veraion of the Bible is read
and EngUsh spoken. In order to
counteract war, a moral equiva
lent must be offered. People go to
war because it is a challenge and
there is something glamorou9j|about
it. So to prevent wars, it would
be necessary to provide a moral
substitute and one spiritually attrac
tive; and to straighten up the world
wo must straighten up the sources,
urges, realms, and outlets.
After Dr. Grafflin’s talk, his
daughter, Ruth, told of a missionary
conference held at Madras. The pri
mary conclusions reached as to
“what every woman should know”
were: How to make and manage
money. How to get and keep a
home. How toi find and! rely on se
curity. How to know and to do
what is right.
The Bible is the source of finding
what ia right, but there is a great
amount of Bible illiteracy.
Meditation — deep and profound
— is necessary to fit us for moving
and straightening up the world.
At the hockey banquet held last
week an All-Salem team and a Be-
serve team were picked. The play
ers making the team were:

and any purchase, either cash or.

annual affair, and let’s make this
the best year yet. So, every one
wait until the fifteenth, and then
stock up! Help yonr “Y”l
Pierrettes to Appear
The last person hurries down the
isle to his seat, the house lights fade,
the footl ghts flash on, the curtains
of the Old Chapel on Salem College
campus part, and the play begins.
The time is Tuesday evening, De
cember 12, at 8:30 o’clock and the
play is “Dear Octopus.” Salem’s
Pierrette Players, under the direc
tion of Mrs. Bruce Williams, are pro
ducing this play, the story of which
centers around the Golden Wedding
Anniversary celebration of an old
couple, Charles and Dora Randolph.
“Dear Octopus,” a charming com
edy by Dodie Smith, is a modern play
that has recently been presented on
the New York and London stages.
The setting is in England.
We are all looking forward to this,
the main production of the Pietrettes
for the year, and we are sure that
the play will measure up to our
Dr. Koch To Read
On' Sunday afternoon, Deeembe'
10, at 2 o’clock, P.M., Professor
Frederick II. Koch of Chapel IJill
will read “A Christmas Carol” by
Charles Dickens. For thirty-five
years Professor Koch has been play
ing the part of the celebrated sour-
puss, Eben^,er Scrooge. But the
bitterness of Scrooge is counter
balanced by the other characters,
for Koch takes all the parts in “A
Christmas Carol. ” At one moment he
is the cringing clerk, afraia to ask
for a day off on Christmas, and the
next moment he is the cheery nephew
who won’t let his warm Christmas
spirit be upset. Then he is the
cheery Tiny Tim, shouting his “God
Bless Us Every One!” i
. Everywhere Professor Ko«h is as
sured of a large audience; so if you
are planning to go, be at Reynold’s
Auditorium in plenty of time. The
seating capacity is 2,1,17 and no more
people than that number will be al
lowed in the place.
Professor Koch is tlie founder of
the Carolina Playmakers and is still
active as the head of the department
of dramatic art at the University of
North Carolina at Chapel HiU. He
teaches classes in pla:ywriting, and
it is said that his classes are very

OUR ‘TOURING TEAM”
Choral Ensemble To
Sing At Vesper
An advent concert designed to ap
prehend the spiritual significance of
the Christmas season will be present
ed this Sunday, December 10, at
the Home Moravian Church 5:00
o’clock Vesper service by the Salem
College Choral Ensemble. Selections
chosen will include choral and in
strumental numbers from the 16th
century to the present day. A
special feature of the program will
be a concerted number for violin,
organ, and woman’s chorus.
The choral numbers. will follow a
quasi-thematic trend. The opening
number by Wilbye, reflects the de
spairing cry of a world-weary heart.
Then follows the hopo-giving an
nouncement “Assupapta Est Mar
ia” (Thou Art Chosen, Mary) by
Aichinger. A Cradle Song by Cal-
visius, invokes the mythical pastoral
quality of the Nativity scene.
The next ensemble number ‘ ‘ How
Par Is It To Bethlehem” by Dono
van, depicts the endless procession of
peoples of all kinds and times who
would .find their way to Him, who
is their true hearts’ desire. This
number for solo, chorus, and organ
is very altmospheric and will feature
Kathryn Swain, soprano, with Eliza
beth Tuten at the organ.
A colorful harp solo written by
Debussy and played by Eleanor
Welch will precede a modern choral
symphony number by Gerrard Wil
liams entitled “Peace.”
The closing ensemble number
“Fugue, Kanzone and Epilogue” by
Karg-Elert includes in its broad out
line the gamut of masieal styles from
the early polyphonic writers to the
present day. This composition will
feature Christine Dunn, violinist, the
Choral Ensemble, and Anna Withers
An appropriate organ postlude
played by Charles Q. Vardell, Jr.,
will c>nclnde the caneert.
Clifford Bair will conduct the

On Wednesdfiy, afternoon at 5
o’clock two evenly^matched teams
made up of members of the two var
sities and the touring teams met in
a hockey battle. It was a fairly fast
game and showed the players in good
form. Due to some emj^atio urging
the number of spectators was great
ly inerea^ed, aiid there were many
inter«etiiig happenings to be studied.
During the last minute of play,
Springer shot a goal for the team
dressed in black.
Another game mil be played on
Friday afternoon starting at 4
o’clock. The,teams are looking for
ward to having thrw alumnae hock
ey players from' the class of ’39 join
them. These ahimnae will probably
be Annette MeNeely; Caroline Pfohl
and Peggy Bowen. The teams will
consist of the same players that par
ticipated in the game on Wednesday.
