Bartered Bride” by Smetara, in.

Department. Mr. Paul Oneley of

ral vicinity will appear in the opera.
The opening scene? of the opera
is laid in the Inn courtyard of a
small Bohemian village. It is
feast day, and everyone is happy
and gay save Marie, who is quittf
dejectel over the fact that her per-
ents, Ludmila and Krushina, with
the help of the marriage broker
Kezal, have chosen a husband for
her despite the fact that she loves
Jenik, a handsome? lad of the vil
lage. Marie has never seen this
chosen suitor whoso name is Vas-
hek, son of a rich old farmer Micha,
and shef violently objects to mar/y-
ing him. Jenik persuades her Mo
be calm and to trust in him. The
crafty marriage broken Kezal,
however, plans to persuade? Jerick
to sell Marie to Vashek. When
Jenik discovers that Vashek is
Micha’a son, he agreiw to relinquish
Mario for the sum of 300 gold
pieces. Meanwhile Marie has met
up with Vashek who is in reality
half-brothc'T to Jenik. The shy girl
tells him that Mario will surely
poison liim. Vashek, not knowing
that this is Marie, swears that he’ll
not marry Marie. To add color and
interest, a traveling circus group
enti'rs, and an amusing scene with
Vashek ensues. Finally, Marie,
crushed from hearing that Jenik
has sold her lov«, agrees to marry
Vashek, anil the families are called
in. Jenik appears and is re
cognized by Micha as his own son
(by his first wife) who had loft
home many years pre.ious. Thus

“Robert E. Lee Hotel .... and
PLEASE hurry’ ”
The cab jolted forward and your
reporter jolted back against the
seat . . . puilling up her stockings
and combing her hair as the cab
wove through unbearably slow traf
“Robert E. Lee, lady.”
The cab door opened and your
reporter tumbled out, flew through
the lobby, disappeared in an eleva
tor, and was gone.
When the elevator door slid open
again, out stormed the reporter:
“But they’re NOT in 946.’ ”
“Well, maybe they’re on the
mezzanine then.”
Once again the lady of the press
was off. She marched on the mez
zanine just in time to catch a
glimpse of a coat-tail rounding the
corner. With her eye on the coat
tail, she continued to morch . . .
until she collided with a camera, a
photographer, and a huddle of re
“Your’re from the SALEMITEf”
“It's three-thirty.”
“Un-huh. I couldn’t get here at
“Well, the interview is over; but
you can get all the information
you’ll need from the JOUENAL-
“Gee thanks.”
The impatient journalist whipped
downstaires, tlirough the lobby, and
out into the street where sho spied
the rest of what went with the coat
tail. He wa-s a square little man
in a long, long grey coat . . . and
he was so important to the repor
ter that she walked along behind
focusing hw attention on hisgontly-
curling yellow-grey hair! and
when he turned his head to speak
with tho tall woman in a fur-col
lared tweed, she caught sight of a
fat little profile and a yellowed
ivory cigarette holder. Taking a
deep br(ath the reporter made her
decision and overtook the couple.
“Mr. Luboshutz?”
The little man wheelel about ex
tending his hand pleasantly.
“Hello, Darling” each syllable
was measured and distinct.
He was a precious little man who
scarcely came to the reporter’s
shoulder. As he shook hands, his
eyes twinkled and his lips played
with a smile around the holder. The
reporter turned to the woman:
“Miss Nemenoffi”
She was a lovely delicate creature
with exquisite rich creamy skin
and luxuriant chestnut hair waving
casually out from under a saucy
brow off-the face hat and a still
sauicer brown tie-undor the - chin
After explaining whom sho was,
the reportiT joined in w’ith the hike
up and down in front of tho hotel
chatting with Miss Nenienaff, who
is really ^frs. Luboshutz, about
music and books and smoking and
numerous triffles. Miss Nomenoff
wash(*s her oVn hair, writes all tho
letters for tho family, keeps house,
and smokos Cnmels. Sho collects
books of which she has “stacks and
stacks” . . . sh(' plays, not popular
music, but a little modern music.
Pierre Luboshutz collects cigar
ette holders and lets his wife take
care of them . . . despises letter
writing . . . refuses to talk about
Russia’s part in the war except to
say that he’s proud of the way his
native land is holding out . . . and
adores Geina Nemenoff.
' Tlieir marriage has been idyllical-
ly happy for ten years . . . you’ve
heard how Pierre met Genia in a
class in Paris, fell in love with her
tho second time he saw her, and
married her the tenth time ho saw
her . . . how he had to leave im
mediately after their wedding to
go on tour . . . and how th^ de
cided then to become a duo-piano
team in order not to bo separated
Both Luboshutz and Nemenoff
are charming people. Their sense
of humor is keen . . . their accents
delightful .... and their gracious
ness overwhelming.
With a glow of satisfaction, the
reporter took leave of the Lubo-
shuts and settled back in another
cab to smugly gloat over having
outwitted the reporter who advised:
“Got all the information you’ll
need from the JOURNAL-SEN-
Girls Discuss Salem’s
Defe nse Program
‘Do your part in defense” was the
main theme of the Armistice Day
hapel program last Tuesday. Tlie
speakers, led and introduced by
Reece Thomas were Marlon Burven-
ick, Mary Ellen Carrig, Betty Van
derbilt, aii(I Barbara Lasley.
Barbara began the program by re
viewing tho background of tho na
tion’s preparation and summarizing
what is being done now in America
for defense.
Mary Ellen Carrig told tho student
body what other universities and
colleges are doing in the way of de
fense. Sho mentioned R. O. T. C.
units, aeronautic.s training schools
and a wide variety of activities in
laboratories that are all doing their
Marion Hurvenick very interoat-
ingly siKjke about womon in defense.
She explained what other women’s
colleges aro doing for tho defense
program. Among other things, she
mentioned that some college book
stores aro selling bracelets, cigarette
cases and compacts for national de
Betty Vanderbilt closed the formal
part of the program by telling S’alem
students that they should do more
if other colleges can. She remised
them of things that were done last
year, such as the World Christian
Federation, knitting for the British,
the Chinese starvation supper and
tho ambulance fund. The Fresh
man history class is co-oporatingi by
making a study of what is taking
place by reading current events and
contemporary history.
At the end of Betty’s talk an
Oi>en Forum was held, with Koeco
Thomas presiding. Several interest
ing suggestions were made. It was
suggested that there bo a series of
compulsory lectures on current
event.-i led by ai member of tho fac
ulty. Another suggestion was that
there be a dessertless dinner every
once in, a while and that tho money
go for national defense. Someone
else suggested that Salem entertain
soldiers over tho week-end. Salem
book store will also probably obtain
some of tho bracelets and cigarette
cases of which Marion Burvenick
spoke in her talk. Miss Averill an
nounced a Itod Cross first aid course
which will be organized soon.
It was finally decided that a de
fense committee should bo chosen
to work on the suggestions that were
made and to figure out plans for a
program tlint will bo launched soon
at Salem.

The ivy will be planted beside the
llaftio M. Strong refectory. The
committee has chosen a Magnolia,
which Mrs. Howard E. Rondthaler
has been raising, for their class tree.
Last year’s graduating class planted
a weeping willow tree on tho athletic
field near the water fountain.
Ivy and tree planting is a tra
dition of 40 years standing. The
class which established tho custom
presented a polownia tree which
stood in front of the Lizora Fortune
Hanes home managonient house next
to the President’s Residence. This
tree is a native of North Carolina.
It grew to be quite large before it
finally died and was cut down eight
years ago. There are a great many
class trees standing about Salem’s
beautifully wooded campus. Tho
big Magnolia which stands near the
.science building, Park Hall, was
planted by tho class of 1015. It is
said that the reason the tree has
flourished throughout the years is
because each girl in the class buried
a penny at tlie Magnolia’s roots.
The class of ’42 gave no hints as to
buried treasure.
Have you heard about th« lit
tle' Red Man yet? You still have
time. The Candle Tea Is being
