Of all days for It to rain, the
“bottom dropped out” S'aturday
morning, and the Juniors and Sen
iors hearts dropped too! For this
was the week-end of the Junior-
Senior Dances, that we had been
looking forward to all year (espec
ially the Juniors, since it was our
first chance to attend).
But by the time for the tea-dance
in the afternoon, the rain had sub
sided; and the girls’ faces were
beaming, even though the sun was
n’t. The tea dance was a' girl-break
dance, due to the fact that many
of the girls didn’t have dates for
the dance. There had been a lot of
searching around through old add
ress books, the week before the
dance, trying to find someone to in
vite who wasn’t as yet in the ser
vice. In spite of all these complicat
ions, it was thought to be about the
best dance of-thc year.
As for the decorations, the com
mittee did a very good job, carrying
out the theme of the blustery month
of March. Kites of various colors,
placed at intervals, swung from the
ceiling, and the nickleodeon was
camouflaged by a huge white kite.
The main idea was to keep the ex
penses of the music and decorations
as low as possible because of the
war. Hats off to the Juniors for the
pleasing effect, as well as for keep
ing within the budget!
Up until 10:30, the formal dance
Saturday night was a card dance,
but after that time, it was girl-
break. There were so few “stags”
that tBe dance seemed a little
“slow”, but everyone was having
a wonderful time anyway. Very
elaborate refeshments were served
during intermission, consisting of
hot chocolate, cookies, sandwiches,
and blanched almonds—a treat in
any man’s language!
All too soon the dance was over,
and it was time to wonder slowly
up the hill a perfect ending to a
perfect day. .
Battle rages fiercely on Russian
front! Following an 80 miles set
back announced in a Wednesday
midnight communique, the Reds are
now closing in on the Axis forces
and forcing them to retreat before
the strong 100 mile Red line ofi the
Kharkov area.
The Russians, in thedr retreat, lost
eight important bases near Kharkov,
all of which were railroad junctions
or industrial, centers. Now however
they have come back at the major
point of central and southern fronts,
Oriel, with a powerful attack.
Beds have now circled German
troops on three sides in thei Vyaz
ma district.
Russians claim that Germany lost
more than 20,000 men in their last
great counter-offensive.
In the fifth raid made against
Munich, birthplace of Naziism, by
British based bombers, considerable
damage was done oa Tuesday night
March 9, Thi^ target is a key rail
road junction, and a home to many
war factories, among them the Bay-
erische Motor Works which - pro
duces airplane engines. It is known
as Germany’s “second Berlin” be
cause of its many key Nazi party
Germans and British vie for sea
power! In battle off the Dutch
coast, British claim to hav« hit an
enemy tanker, damaged an eneiny
patrol craft, and set fire to another
craft; the Germans, however, admit
no losses and to have sunk
three British torpedo boats end dam
aged twx) others.
In the Southwest Pacific, Allied
bombers continue blows*upon the
Japanese merchant marine. One
7,000 ton enemy ship ig believed to
have been destroyed at Boetong
Island, and another was left in
smoke at Wewak.
On March 10, the House voted a
year’s extension of the lend-lease
Plans for future! President
Roosevelt has laid before Congress
a vast new social security program
and a plan foi" a postwar nation in
which government will share in in
dustrial management.
Ethel Barrymore, who holds audi
ences spell-bound by that footlight
magic of her own which makes a
Barrymore performance a thrilling
evening and a memory to be treas
ured for years, will be in Winston-
Salem at the State Theatre March
19. She will appear in one of the
greatest performances of her en
tire career, “The Corn Is Green,”
Emlyn William’s international hit.
Barrymore admirers throughout
the country have been considerably
satisfied by the New York success
of Miss Barrymore in the play
which won the New York Drama
Critics Circle award. Playgoers
have awaited with eager expecta
tion the visit of this production in
which Miss Barrymore portrays the
role of ^iss Moffat, the compas
sionate, forthright Englishwoman
who battles with ignorance in a
remote Welsh village at the close
of the century. Heading her sup
porting cast are Richard Waring,
as a brilliant young Welshman
whom she takes under her wing;
Perry Wilson, as the Cockney lass
who interferes with Miss Moffat’s
plans for her protege; Eva Leonard-
Bayne, as her astonished mother
and housekeeper; Lewis L. Russel
in a comic role as the squire; and
Esther Mitchell and Ttm Williams
as Miss Moffat’s vigorous lieuten
“The Corn Is Green” is present
ed by Herman Shumlin, who produc
ed “Watch on the Rhine,” “The
Male Animal,” “The Little Foxes,”
“Ilie Children’s Hour,” “Grand
Hotel,” and others. This play
should live up to expectations and
everyone who attends should en
joy it.

In this crisis, the nation turns
with thankfulness to its Red Cross
—for over sixty years a tower of
strength in disaster and in war.
Today, the American Red Cross is
undertaking the greatest oWigation
in its history. Its first duty, ac
cording to the terms of its Congres
sional Charter, is to aid the men of
the armed forces and their families
in time of desolation and trouble.
Everyone of us who has a brother,
father or husband, in the armed
forces personally feels the import
ance of the Red Cross.
Today, in addition to the reali
ties of war overseas, we face at
home the hazards of bombing, shell
fire and sabotage. Anything can
happen; and no matter when or
where it happens, the Red Cross
will be ready at Pearl Harbor and
at Manila. The moment the Jap
anese bombers struck in Honolulu,
the Red Cross began to move all
women who were to become mothers
to homes within two blocks of the
hospital. And they set up first aid
stations at once throughout.
Not all of us can fight. Not all
of us are expected to. But all of
us can help those who are fighting
for us. Humanitarianism has a
place alongside of guns and bayo
nets. Next year our armed forces,
their families and other civilians
require $125,000,000. If you haven’t
time to serve in any other way,
give! This is your opportunity to
help, Salemites. Let’s go.

Orchestra Concert
Monday Night
The annual Salem College String
Orchestra Concert, under the direc
tion of Miss Hazel Horton Read,
will be presented Monday evening,
March fifteenth, at eight-thirty
o’clock in Memorial Hall. A most
interesting and varied program has
been arranged, and the featured
soloist will be fourteen-year-old Bar
bara Ann Benson, of Elkin, N. C.
Barbara Ann has been a pupil of
Miss Read’s for some time and has
often evidenced her great talent as
soloist on many previous programs
of the orchestra.
The program will open with the
“Concerte Grosso in G minor” by
Geminiani; the four mov.ements be
ing spiritoso, allegro, andante, and
vivoce. The Mendelssohn “Violin
Concerto in E minor” will then fea
ture Barbara Ann Benson as soloist,
with Laura Emily Pitts at the piano.
The concerto is famed for its lyric
beauty and provides ample opportun
ity for display of technique, inter
pretation, and talent. The Pavel
“Pavanne” will be played'by thri
orchestra with Hazel Newman at
the harp. The lovely them© of this
number has been popularized and is
a favorite of many. “Hosanna”
by the contemporary English com
poser Thomas E. Dunhill will close
the program. This number is Written,
in the modem idiom and hasi an ex
otic appeal. The lilting folk-tune in
it symbolizes the common people
celebrating S|Ome religious festival.
The number ends gloriously with a
paean of chiming church bells.
The concert promises to be most
enjoyable and interesting. It is in
deed the result of persistent and
faithful effort on the part of the
orchestra itself and tliat of its di
rector. Let’s show OTir wli,oleheart-
ed support and spend a delightful
evening at Memorial Hall on Mon
day night.
Tlie Internatonal Relations Club
met on Wednesday, March 10, in
the living room of Louisa Wilson
Bitting Boijding. Dr. Anscombe in
troduced the guest speaker, Rabbi
Rosenthal who spoke on “The
Peace to Come”, expecially as it
relates to Germany.
Stating that the world is sick to
day, Rabbi Rosenthal said we must
approach the problem and solution
as a psychiatrist would. We must
help the sick Germans, not vindicate
them. Two important organizations
are studying the peace for the post
war world, the New School for
Socia} Research and the American
Commission to study the Organiza
tions for Peace. The latter group
gave their second report two weeks
ago, whicli proposed a world peace
based on four things: the Atlantic
Character and a Bill of Human
Rights, the disarmament of the con
quered nations, the substitution of
concept trusteeship for imperialism,
and the joint settlement of social,
economic, and political problems
without recourse to war.
Rabbi Rosenthal explained that
if we determine the fate of the con
quered Germany, it is necessary first
to realize the x>olieies of the “New
World Order” and of the German
Europe today, and to answer their
challenge. He gave tlreir ideas relat
ive to economics, geopolitics, and
their concept of a master race.
Their ideology is against everything
that is constructive.
After vividly picturing these cir
cumstances in Nazi Conquered
Europe, he showed that as long as
there is a Berlin there is a center
for uprising. Briefly, his geopolitical
solution would bo to organize a mass
migration of German people to
Brazil, and throughout the world. It
is probable that this first generat
ion of evacuees would bo down
hearted; their children would be in
different; and their grandchildren
would be true citizens of their new
home. He explained further how the
system in Germany would be re
organized. \
In the discussion that followed.
Dr. Anscombe gave his opinion on
wliat a post-war-Europo should be—
O' Confederation of Europe. Each
country would continue to have its
own culture, but there would be an
international police force. Rabbi
Kosenthal stated that the under
ground movement in Europe is dis
appointed in the fact that the
Americans waited so long in Oran
in the North African campaign and
that there are still concentration
camps in territory taken over by
the Americans.
The Salem College String Quar
tet will bp featured on the weekly
broadcast, “From the Salem Musio
Hall,” Sunday night at nine o’clock
in Memorial Hall. The quartet is
