NEXT WEEK WILL FEATURE MUSIC PROGRAMS
Miss Read in Concert
FIRST RECITAL IN
Miss Hazel Horton Bead, head
of the string department of the
School of Music, will appear in
concert at 8:30 o’clock on Monday
evening, December 9th. A member
of the music faculty for several
years, Miss Read has done a great
deal toward broadening the inter
est in string instruments here at
Salem. She is a teacher of not only
the violin, but also of the viola
Before joining the staff at
Salem, Miss Read studied with Lil
lian Shattuck of Boston, Mass. and
later with the internationally fam
ous woman - teacher and virtuoso,
Kathleen Parlow. Miss Parlow was
one of the favorite pupils of Auer,
composer in collaboration of Miss
Read’s first number. Miss Shattuck
was a former pupil of Joachim
(great virtuoso of the 19th cen
tury) who wrote the cadenzas to
Mozart’s concerto which Miss Read
will play Monday.
The complete program is as fol

The Chaconne with which the
program opens is a theme and va
riations. The theme, broad and
stately, shifts from the violin to
the piano against decided' rhythmic
Typical of Mozart is the A ma
jor concerto, in that it is light and
tuneful. The last movement is in
rondo form with tempo of minuet.
It then goes into the quick tempo
of the allegro and later back to the
Taken from one of Goldmark’s
concertos, the Air is a rich and
warm melody that works up to a
bravura passages. After a glorious
climax it returns again to the
melody, ending quietly.
Prokofietf’s March is definitely
modern. Its tune is “catchy” and
effective with a brilliant closing.
Miss Read has shown in her
choice of musical selections that
she is an artist Salem is proud to
‘ ‘ own.”

MISS HAZEL HOETON BEAD
KENYON GIVES VIEWS
ON MODERN ART
In chapel on Thursday, Mr. Lawr
ence Kenyon, head of the Art De
partment, spoke on modern art. Mr.
Kenyon who recently studied and
taught at the University of Iowa,
is a new-comer to the faculty of
Salem. At Iowa he took advance
study in art under Grant Wood,
whose painting technique was the
subject of Mr. Kenyon’s talk.
To give the students a better
understanding of contemporary art,
in anticipation of the lecture by
Thomas Craver next semester, was
the speaker’s object. Aside from
the fact that Mr. Kenyon studied
under Grant Wood he chose him
for illustration because, to quote:
“He represents the middle way; I
don’t expect you to like him and
he will be a good test of my prim-
ise . . .”
The talk was illustrated with
slides projected on a screen. These
were of two Wood paintings—“Par
son Weem’s Fable” and the fa-

With Many Dreams,.
When I sat down and began to
talk to the charming Salem gradu
ate, who is the new Director of
Public Relations and Alumnae Sec
retary of Salem College and Acad-
em}% I asked if she had wanted to
return to Salem.
“I am Presbyterian enough to
think that I was predestined to
come back to Salem,” answered
Lee Marsh, as she is known to
classmates and friends. “My four
years at Salem were the most de
lightful years,” she continued with
a friendly smile.
Miss Marsh came to Salem, on the
Mrs. Stonewall Jackson scholarship,
since she was a cousin of Mrs.
Jackson. Miss Marsh was , interest-
ed to know who was now receiving
this scholarship. (I had not the
WKile at Salem, Miss Marsh was
interested in a number of things.
“In studies, I believe, I liked
English the best, and in sports I
liked basketball.” She was also
president of the Y. W. C. A., a
member of the staff of “The Ivy,”
the college magazine, and was ac
tively interested in dramatics.
“I just don’t have any dislikes,
but I do like to hike. Last summer
I went on a ten-day hike, with a
pack on my back, into the White
Mountains of New Hampshire,”
she told me. Her next “like” is
reading and she said she was de
lighted with the library. “But I’ve
been so busy moving I ha%'en’t had

There have been so many in

tinued this very much alive per
son. “The changes have been most
in the life of the Student Body.”
She said she was impressed most,
and very much delighted, too, with
the grace, poise, ease and direct
ness Salem girls are able to stand
up and make announcements in
Ohai>el. “In my day, students turn
ed cold at the very thought!”
Perhaps the thing that impress
ed me most was the cordiality of
Salem. The range of friendliness
extends all the way from the color

When Erica Morini appeared in
a violin concert at Reynolds Me
morial Auditorium last Tuesday
night, she delighted and enthralled
a large audience consisting of many
Salem students. Miss Morini’s
playing was not only technically
perfect, but it was characterized by
a richness and depth of feeling
which appears only in the great.
Her program was an exceedingly
difficult one, but it showed her
great virtuosity to an advantage,
and she did not spoil the spirit of
her numbers by obliging with en
cores until the conclusion of the
