Salem Poster-Makers Win War Honors
Four States Covered
By Moore and Whittier
Did you know that the Salem
College Art Department almost got
the Government “E” for its con
tribution to the war effortf It all
came about when Mr. M. J. Mc-
Auliffe, Director of the Fourth Civil
Service Region covering North
Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia,
Maryland, and District of Columbia,
told Mr. Kenyon of the great need
for men and women in the field of
Civil Service. Mr. McAuliffe then
asked Mr. Kenyon if he would have
•lis students of Studio Art design
^ poster to inform the public of
this immediate and vast need. So
through the artistic talents of Bar
bara Whittier and Betty Moore a
poster was designed^ and accepted.
The poster is headed with a sample
of Gregg and Pittman shorthand,
and underneath is asked: “Can you
transcribe this?” Incidentally, when
the poster was sent to Washington
for approval, three secretaries were
called in to transcribe the shorthand,
just to make sure it wasn’t Japan
The poster will be displayed on
the bulletin board in the library.
Mr. Kenyon has announced that
there will be more posters made,
and we praise the Art Department
for their contribution to the import
ant war effort!

The first, a travel talk in techni
color, featured ancient temples in
Ceylon and India, sacred statues of
historic deities, fascinating me?th-
ods of worship and self-torture^ and
customs and economic problems of
the Indians.
Synthetic rubber, one of the
most promising discoveries of
twentieth century chcmistry, was
the theme of the second film. In
this was explained the complicated

After Exams.
After such a successful hockey
season, sport enthusiasts are delight
ed that the badminton and ping
pong tournaments will begin direct
ly after exams. Having exercise
more strenuous than folk dancing
will be delightful.
As yet all entrants have not
signed up, but enough have to as
sure some very spirited competi
tion. Those signed for badminton
are Normie Tomlin, Rosiland Clark,
Caroline Bennett, Cameron Donald
son, Joy Flanagan, Carlotta Carter,
and Coil Nuchols; with Katherine
Traynham and Normie Tomlin, Joy
Flanagan and Ceil Nuchols also en
tering in the doubles competition.
Caroline Bennett, Lois Wooten,
Martha Sauvain, and Carlotta Car
ter have entered the ping pong
tournament and quite a few more
are expected to enter.
Judging from the people who will
play, the games should be far
above average. Now is the time
for those of you who think games
too strenuous, to enter the ping
pong tournament; and for those who
think games too slow, to enter the
badminton tournament. It is also an
excellen escape frm thinking what"
a miserablei mess you made on your
exams so come one, come all; or at
Jeast watch your more eneregetie
friends if you are indisposed.

Does Real Well, Too
Promptly at 7:30 we crept in the
stage door of the auditorium. There
stood two little men in tuxs talk
ing together and apparently having
a fine time all by themselves. We
hesitantly walked towards them —
looking from one to the other and
wondering if either of them were
Felix Knight or not.. Finally, after
many questioning glanccs, the little
man with the ‘ ‘ Pete Impish’ ’ ex
pression pointed to the other one
and sighed, “That’s him.”
We shifted our glance to the 5’-8”
man with green twinkling eyes and
long black lashes. In a mock gegt-

That’s an established fact at Sa

and the rearranged physical educa

sults that can be seen by the most

is placed upon posture, and how to

On one bleak November evening
in 1753 after a Communion service,
many people in Harrnhut, Germany,
lingered and either prayed or dis
cussed Brother Grube’s condition or
Sister Dober’s cooking. Realizing
that nobody wanted to go home,
th(eir leiader. Count Zinzendorf,
went to his manor house and brought
great quantities of food to the peo
ple. As Zinzendorf saw them en
joying the meal, he remembered the
Agapae, or the “meal in conamon^
of the early Christians. (In the
olden days, after the Apostles had
communed, they frequently ate their
meals together). Zinzendorf ex
plained all this to the people, who,
incidentally were delighted. And
there began the first Lovefeast,
which is a favorite and distinctive

Thursday afternoon at 4:00, Dr.
Charles Vardell, Jr., gave a most in
teresting lecture on “What is the
music student’s place in the war ef
fort!” Dr., Vardell began by say
ing that everyone was now asking,
“Is what I’m doing right now any
good in the war effort t Can I be
of any nse to my country by con
tinuing my musical career?” In
war time, music makeb civilians
more patriotic—it stirs and touches
their hearts and even their pocket-
books. Music makes one commun
ity conscious. For example: a com-
mnnity-sing or a concert. Music en
tertains—we all must have “our
lighter moments” in the midst of
this war, and music can help give
much-needed escape from reality.
For our soldiers, music is one of
the most vital parts of their life.
It keeps their spirits high and
takes their minds off of things that
would make them unhappy.
What has all this got to do with
the music student! Musicians can
work with, the U. S. O., can organ
ize community concerts and vic
tory sings can help train bands and
choruses, and can take part on ra
dio programs.
The latter is one of the things
that Salem Music School has done
for the war effort. Foi the other
parts that the music student might
play in the war. Dr. Vardell pre
sented an outline of objectives for
the second semester.
The choral ensemble and Glee
Club will make a specialty of learn
ing and performing patriotic songs,
both in concert and on the radio.
Also, the Choral groups 'Will serve

ure of grandeur, he made a low
sweeping bow and said, ‘ ‘ Felix
Knight at your service, mam.” Then
he laughed and that cleft in his chin
deepened considerably. He looked
at us closely and told us that there
was nothing to bo afraid of and
that he would be only too glad to
answer some questions for us. At
that point of the game, we became
most embarassed; for, as wo told
him, it was our first real interview
and we couldn’t think of a single
thing to ask him. He grinned and
started in.
Felix Knight was born at Macon,
Ga. When he was five, he moved to
Florida. It was there that he won
his first singing contest. The prize
of $15 was used to buy his first
pair of long pants. When he was
