Caroline Hood, Rockefeller Cen
ter’s “flying ambassadress,” who
is now touring the South via East
ern Air Lines, will present her illu
strated lecture, “Behind the Scenes
in Eoekefeller Center,” at expand
ed chapel on Wednesday, October
Mpre than a quarter of a million
members of over a thousand organ
izations of all types have heard
Miss Hood lecture during the past
four years. She has traveled almost
four times the distance around the
earth, by airplane, train, bus and
car to keep her speaking engage
ments in twenty states.
Miss Hood is well qualified to
lecture on Rockefeller Center be
cause she watched it develop from
a few sketches on the drawing
board of her uncle—the late Ray
mond Hood, one of the Center’s ar
chitects—to the fascinating “city-
within-a-city ” that it is today.
Using colored slides she will take
her listeners behind the scenes of
this vast enterprise.
She will then, transport her list
eners two blocks north of Rocke
feller Center—to the Museum of
Modern Art—where housed in a
spectacular $2,000,000 building are
hundreds of modern masterpieces
by leading contemporary artists.
Returning to the Center, and
backstage at the Radio City Music
Hall, Miss Hood will take her list
eners to the carpenter shop where
workmen make the props for the
stage shows; to the Rockettes’
dressing room; and to the fitting
room of the Corps de Ballet. She
will describe the tiny stage on
which all Music Hall stage shows
are planned before they are pro
duced on the largest indoor stage
in the world.
In contrast with her first slide,
showing the Elgin Botanic Garden
which occupied the Rockefeller
Center site a hundred years ago,
Miss Hood will close her lecture
with striking day and night views
of New York, taken from the Ob
servation Roofs of the RCA Build
ing, seventy stories above the busy

At this time it is uncertain
whether or not Mr. Leland Stowe,
commentator, will be able to fill
his appointment on the Lecture
Sferies. He was scheduled to be
here next Thursday, but because
Df war conditions he may not be
able to leave the Balkans in time
to fill next week’s lecture engage
ment. Definite announcement will
be made next week, Mr. Holder,
chairman of the committee said

The last group was composed of
two duets by Mr. and Mrs. Jensen.
These selections were “La ci
darem la mano” from Don Giovan-
na by Mozart and “Wanting You”
from New Moon by Romberg.
The Wachovia Historical Society
held its annual meeting Tuesday,

Dr. Harland, noted archaeologist,
gave an illustrated lecture on bu
rial customs in Egypt before the
time of Christ, dwelling on the de
tails of the tomb of King Tut, dis
covered in 1922.
Rev. Mr. Rights, president of the
society read an interesting paper
on the establishment and organiza
tion of the Horse Society of Old
Salem which operated to protect
the property of the citizens. Any
person living within a twenty-five
mile radius of Salem could join the
society by paying a fee. In turn
for this, if property was stolen
from the member, the company
would foot the bill of tracking
down the criminal.
Dr. Fries reported the progress
made on the restoration of the
Adam Spach house near here. Col
onel W. A. Blair urged that mem
bers of the organization seek new
members. He reminded the group
that the society was not only one
of Moravians and people of Win-
ston-Salem but of North Carolina.

The Carnegie Corporation, in con

has carried on during the ten
years a program of promoting gen
eral reading by undergraduates.
Their latest plan, whereby Salem
benefits, is to make available to a
limited number of colleges funds
for a group of periodicals, chiefly
of general educational significance,
to which the library has not sub
scribed hitherto.
The library announces the open
ing of a Rental Collection, through
which popular books—both fiction
and non-fiction—will be available
to students and faculty for a small

service will add books of a recre

for itself it will be accessioned and
catalogued and put into the regular
collection. With this new plan
Salem follows the example sot by
such schools as University of Chi
cago and Goucher.

A minimum charge of lOe which
entitles the borrower to keep a

Thorborg Comments
By Jill Nurenberg
This morning we went up to the
Robt. E. Lee to meet our much-
heralded star of this evening’s^^con-
cert. We found her seated in the
lobby, with her handsome husband
and manager, chatting with the
Press. Madame Thorborg was a
charming sight in her wide-brim
med black profile hat, a luscious
moleskin coat (the chamber of
commerce notices of our Sunny
South evidently missed her), a
simple dark dress, and a smile on
her lovely face.
At first Madame Thorborg a«d I
were tonguetied, but when I start
ed talking about how I hated train
traveling, she beamed aloud, agree
ing that trains are vile, smelly,
and either too hot or too cold, and
altogether pasky. She talked wist
fully of her home in Sweden, for
saken since last September, and
left the subject of “war-torn Eur
ope” with relief, preferring to
dwell on the cheerful crowds in
Times Square, near where she and
Mr. Bergman, her husband, have a
cozy apartment. Unfortunately,
Thorborg remarked, she hadn’t
much time for any crowds but
those she sings to, and she loves
all those.
I found out that a Swedish con
tralto speaks French, German, and
Italian, as well as English, fluent
ly, and that she adores American
cooking. It appears that Swedish
cooking is rife with chopped, on
ions, you never know where you’ll
find them next, and Madame
Thorborg likes her surprises away
from the dinnertable.
Well, really her husband is very
nice, too; though the poor thing
doesn’t seem to get much atten
tion. I found out that his name
was Gustav Bergeman but every
body calls him “Mr. Thorborg,”
which as you can well imagine he
doesn’t like at all. He plays his
wife’s accompaniments and is quite
a well known pianist in his own
right, and he smokes luscious big
Though she’s been touring all
October, Thorborg looks forward, to
a new tour during November, after
which, back to N. Y. and the Met,
where she’ll open the new season
in a blaze of glory with a Verdi
opera. I loved talking to Thorborg,
and I know you will love her sing
ing too, for she’s a real nice sort
of person, though she’s one of our
brightest stars.
