SOUTH AMERICAN GOOD
On Tuesday February 24, 1942
Salem College was host to six South
.\merican Shimmer School students
from thq( University of North Caro
lina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
These students go to school dur
ing our summer months and during
the winter they attend summer
school here in the United States.
The Spanish Club acted as hosts
for the day and also at luncheon.
Mr. Brant Snavely introduced our
neighbors to us. During the lunch
eon one of the guests expressed his
hajtpiness at being able to visit us.
Last year over one hundred stu
dents visited Salem College, but due
to the war only a few attended sum
mer school this year.
The chapel program for the day
w-as supposed to include a lecture
by one of the South Americans, but
since they do not like to get up
early they found it impossible to
make our chapel hour.
The Vespers program, Sunday, will
be a continuation of the readings
from “The Hand of God,” a book
written in a modern cadenced idiom
and presenting a vital and illumi
nating interpretation of the meaning
of the lifcy of Jesus for us living in
the twentieth century. Margie Ray
will read the selection this Sunday
in the Old Chapel at 6:30.
