GIVING THE SAME
WE DEMAND OF OTHERS
All colleges of today play a stellar role in preparing the
students for leadership in later life. One of the best builders
of character is the college Student Self-Government Association.
We at Salem elect to the “stee-gee” council those members
whom we think possess qualities of honesty, reliability, interest,
forceful and effective leadership, and initiative.
We expect our representatives to be exemplary in their
conduct. However, when a membei- corrects us for breaking
a rule we feel offended and think her a “stuffed shirt.”
Evei’y organization must have rules and regulations in
order to run efficiently. We should not expect any more of
our representatives than we are willing to put forth ourselves.
SIGNS THAT POINT
Recently when the suggestion box was opened there were
found in it many helpful suggestions made by interested stu
dents who see a need of improvement at Salem. This is only
one of the signs that point to the fact that Salem students are
becoming more and more aware of their part in student govern
ment. This interest on the part of 350 students who make up
the student government will do, more than any thing else to
break down ideas prevalent for the last few years that those
who were members of the council were judges instead of rep
resentatives. They are at last realizing that they form an in
tegral part in a system which can not work successfully with
out their help and interest.
There is much yet that needs to be done in improving
conditions, and sometimes members of the Student Council are
not aware of them. This is where the students’ part comes in.
Right now' at the end of this school year there are many changes
being planned for next year. It may be that some of them
will go through, and it may be that the majority of them will
not. Nevertheless, each suggestion will be considered carefully
and fairly by those in authority.
At any rate, it pays for student government members to
keep their eyes open to the conditions around them so that they
can help in making improvements in Salem.
“Hatred must be outlived by
love or else all civilization will be
destroyed,” the fascinating Ataloa
said in the same rich contralto
voice that immediately captivated
her audience. There simply can
not be any racial hatred or we will
be sticking a knife in our own
backs,” she continued.
As Ataloa still dressed in her
ceremonial costume made of doe
skin and beads, and I walked from
the college dining room to the
Rondthalers she told me something
about her education. “I was born
and reared in the old Indian Terri
tory, Oklahoma. Later, I went to
Oklahoma College for Women, the
University of Eedlands, California
and I did graduate work at Colum
bia University, New York.”
By this time we were at the
Rondthalers. Leaning back in her
chair, Ataloa told me that she was
going to Washington after com
pleting her stay in North Carolina,
to work on an Indian Museum pro
I asked about her association
with other races. “I was very for
tunate in having the opportunity to
live and travel with an Interna
tional group, representing 14 na
tions. It is so sad to think that
those same nations won’t live to
gether again in our generation,”
she witfully added.
Ataloa explained about the
‘ ‘ Great Spirit ’ ’ who was an ‘ ‘ all
persuasive power” which made the
Indian feel a sort of oneness with
The same beauty, sincerety,
simplicity and charm which made
her so outstanding on the platform
were obvious in her informal speak
When I left she smiled her
charming smile and said, “Yes, I’ll
come back to Salem because this
is one college that seems to have

Dr. Martin Kelpatriek of the
University of Pennsylvania visited
Salem on Tuesday, as a representa
tive of the American Chemical
Society. He made a careful inspec
tion of the Salem Chemistry De
partment and the Library. The
American Chemical Society is mak
ing an inspection of all college
chemistry departments, w’hich are
intrested in the training of com
mercial chemists and students who
are to take graduate w'ork in the
subject. They are to publish a list
of the institutions which come up
to a standard of excellency which
has been set-up by a committee of
the American Chemical Society. Dr.
Kilpatrick was especially w'ell

“These are grave times. R.emem-
ber that a earless act or word by
anyone on a university campus will
be more misunderstood than if you
had shouted your views in the main
streets of your home towns. There
are some so careless and unaware
of the world they live in that they
feel they need give no thought to
what they say or do. They fail to
recognize that wherever men liv^e
together, there is no such thing as
unrestrained liberty, and that there
is less of it when a nation is at
war of living under the threat of
it.” Dr. Guy Stanton Ford, presi
dent of the University of Minne

as well as a gurb on deeds.—A. C. P.

At first he demurred because he

That sounds all right—except for
the “to boot” part.
