The walls of the study room in South Hall looked pretty-
bare to the day students. To remedy this situation a group
of girls spent an hour rearranging the furniture ( which con
sists of two shelves, table&, and chairs) and hanging a series of
pictures on the wall to the left as- one enters the door. These
pictures, although not of artistic interest, are still evidences
of a genuine desire to make South Hall more attractive and
Along with the “art gallery” is a. table upon which can
t)e found popular and educational magazines for leisure read
ing. The day students themselves contribute to this periodical
There are other evidences also that the Day Students
as an organization are active. A new lamp and a new radio in
the social room, both of which the Day Students have bought,
add much to the improvement of South Kail.
IGNORE OR NOT IGNORE?
During the school year Salem is fortunate in having many
features, in addition to the regular school routine from which
the student can derive much benefit. They are offered to us, but
we are often prone to lay them asride thoughtlessly, excusing
ourselves with the poor alibi of lack of time.
The lecture series is one of those features that should
be enthusiastically received by every Salemite. Madame Sigrid
TTndset, nobel prize winner, was the first lecturer.
Leland Stowe, famous newspaper correspondent, will be
the next speaker. Following him will be Thomas Graver, bril
liant art critic, and John Mason Brown, renowned drama critic,
will complete the series.
Certainly the selection of speakers could not be any bet
ter, and yet we often forfeit the opportunity to hear them.
Oan the game room be more attractive than a person who has
gained fame in his lifework? The game room is always open,
but it is only through great effjort and expense that these out
standing speakers are brought to us.
^t us have bigger turnouts for these reasons. An hour
spent in the presence of a famous personality is much more
valuable than an hour in the classroom.
Eveillez-vous, les ^tudiantes de
Francais. Faisons que la langue
fran^aise soit plus intfiressante aux
dtudiantes de Salem.
Le Cercle Francais travaille de-
puis six semaines pour cela. Ce cer

elle. Cette piece s’appelle “La
Farce de Maitre Pierre Pathelin. ”
C’est une farce du quinziSme siScle
qui reprfisente les droleries d’un tas
On n’apprend une langue qu’en
la parlant. Peut-Stre en parlant
Francais et en I’entendant appren-
drez-vous k aimer cettebelle langue.
The Pi Delta Phi dramatic club
of Salem Academy presented the
play, “They Are None of the Per
fect” last Wednesday night in the
social room of the Mary Patterson
The plot of the play was about
a young girl about to get married
and her friends, who insisted on
presenting a very pessimistic view
of marriage to her. For novelty the
production had three conclusions
and the audience was given the
chance to choose the most suitable
Miss Helen Copenhaver, a facul
ty member of the Academy, direct
ed the play. In the cast were:
Yvonne Stewart of Charlotte; Mary
Margaret Pack, Beaumont, Texas;
Jackie Burns, Charlotte; Julia Con
stantine, Birmingham, Ala.; Peggy
Joise Mee, Cleveland, Tenn.; Lou
ise Landstreet, Huntington, W. Va.;
and Euth Watson, Rocky Mount.
The students on the property
committee were: Ann Cheney, Ma-
moroneck, N. Y., chairman; Mar
garet Parsons, Tampa, Fla.; and
Joy Gilbert, Hartsville, 8. C.
Since there’s no help, come let us kiss and part.
Nay, I have done, you get no more of me!
And I am glad, yea, glad with all my heart,
That thus so cleanly I myseK can free.
Shake hands for ever! Cancel all our vows!
And when we meet at any time again,
Be it not seen in either of our brows
That we one jot of former love retain.
Now at the last gasp of Love’s latest breath,
When, his pulse failing, Passion speechless lies,
When Faith is kneeling by his bed of death,
And Innocence is closing up his eyes —
Now, if thou would’st, when all have given him over,
From death to life thou might’st him yet recover!
At the regular Thursday meeting
of the bacteriology class the pic
ture, “The Water We Drink,”
was shown. Students outside of the
class interested in this sort of
thing were invited.
This picture in technicolor show
ed the various methods of purify
ing drinking water now employed
in the various cities of the United
States. The motion picture was
shown through the courtesy of the
Winston-Salem water department.

Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! ’Tis
four by the old church clock and
all’s well. The square and its sur
rounding community lie in compar
ative quietness, and the only aud
ible sound comes from leaves as
they fall to the ground. Brusquely
the wind stirs up the leaves and
pushes them into little piles, and
the stillness is broken a little more
by a few people who are trudging
to Memorial Hall. Some are actual
ly hurrying—wonder what for?
Suddenly the stillness and quiet
ude is rent by magical sounds that
strangely enough sound like music,
and then we remember! It’s Thurs
day and this is Music Hour. Why
did we forgot to go? We thought
about it cause we had planned to(
hear Susie when she ventured out
on that big stage and made her
musical debut. (They say it’s a
good half-mile from the side door
to that grandfather piano!) The
first music hour had a wonderful
program—it was this:
Prelude and Fugue
in F major Bach
Mrs. J. E. Purcell
Courante in G Handel
Non so piu, cosa son Mozart
Evening Whispers Palmgren
Phyllis has such charming
Le petit' ane blanc Ibert
Chorale in A Minor Franck
Jeux d’Eau Ravel
A Pastoral Carey
Concerto in G minor....Mendelssohn
(Fir.st two movements)
Next Thursday when the clock in
the tower dings four, we’ll be on
our way to Memorial Hall. Just
you wait and see — on secon3
