LIBRARY ADDS RENTAL COLLECTION ROCKEFELLER CENTER GUEST TO BE HERE 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 30th. 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 streets. AMERICAN MUSIC AT BAND CONCERT On Thursday afternoon at 3:15 o’clock and Thursday night at 8:15, the United States Marine Band under the direction of Captain William F. Santelmann gave con certs at the Reynolds Memorial Auditorium. These concerts were sponsored by the Winston-Salem Nurses Association, District 21, and the Journal and Sentinel newspa pers. The proceeds of these concerts were to complete the establishment and equipment of modern Ortho pedic workshop in Bowman Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest College. NOTICE! 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 today. JENSENS SING IN CHAPEL On Wednesday morning in ex panded chapel, Mr. and Mrs. Rob ert Jensen sang.

Accompanied by Miss Leinbach, Mr. Jensen then sang the Prologue from “Pagliacci” by Leoncavallo; “Cargoes” by Tom Dobson; “Long Ago in Alcola” by Mes- sager; and “Guns” by Geoffrey O’Hara. For her second group Mrs. Jen sen sang “A Bird in the Wilder ness” by Horsman; “Lullaby” by Cyril Scott, and Malotte’s “Little Song of Life.” As an encore Mrs. Jensen sang an amusing and clever variation of “Contrary Mary” by Malotte. 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. WACHOVIA HOLDS ANNUAL MEETING The Wachovia Historical Society held its annual meeting Tuesday, October 23, at the Wachovia Mu seum. 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 nection with its library interests, has carried on during the pa.st 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. NEW FICTION NOW ON LIBRARY STACKS 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 chargc. Since the college library is nec essarily a specialized one, this new service will add books of a recre ational nature and increase its use fulness. As soon as each book pays 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. Rental Fee A minimum charge of lOe which entitles the borrower to keep a book 4 days; after this 2c per day will be charged.

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 cigars. 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.
