K McGEACHY FOR 1943-44
Class presidents’?? Ah yes, there
are siieh things . . . and the begin
ner: l)lond, blue-eyed AILEEN SE
VILLE. Last night your reporter
searched frantically for the first of
these three women, and she finally
found Seville, slumped over the
bridge table, dragging on a Philip
Morris . . . catching that moment’s
relaxation between lessons. Seville,
who hails from Statesville, is a dou
ble major: sociology and economics.
She eatehes time, however, to work
actively on both the Annual and
SALEMITB business staffs . . . And
frequently she ia found in the gym
enjoying her favorite sport, badmin
ton. Yes, an unusually well-round
ed person is the on-coming Senior
And from the smoke house up to
the chaos that reigned supreme on
on second floor of Clewell, roamed
your reporter in search of NELL
DENYING. A brief knock ... a
polite: “Come in” . . . And there
sat blue-eyed Nell, of the hair in
curlers and the glasses, bent over
her sociology book. This Albemarle
Salemite, though interested in hock
ey and basketball, is a good stud
ent majoring in both English and
History. Slie promised to lead not
only the Juniors but the whole cam
pus next year.
And last but not least, j'our re
porter reached the bottom floor in
search of LOIS WOOTEN . . . only
to discover that said Salemite was
in third. So up three flights to
an obscure room . . . there, in the
dimmest light imaginable, ,sat Lois
pouring over a math book. She con
sented to come into the hall (the
RALEMJTE| supposedly scooped this
election) to answer questions. There
on the top of the third flight, brown-
eyed Lois of the smoke-house
Wootens, confessed that she was the
one who made some goals to defeat
the Juniors last Tuesday, that she
loved tennis, that she liked home
town Kinston, that she planned to
major in math and to minor in
English, that she had at last hit be
neath the surface in her Ilousman
term paper, that she liked working
on the SALEMITE, and that she

Here is the news you’ve been
waiting for ... V. V. Garth has
been, ele'cted I. E. 8. President for
Yes, Salem’s own V. V. . . . V.
V. from Hickory, who entered Sialem
as just another Freshman in 1941.
Yet there was something unusual
about her — with her tiny “doll-
like” figure, her appealing face, her
congenial nature, her warm hefart,
and a tremendous amount of poise.
As many of you know she is the
second in the line of Garths — pre
ceeded by Peggy and followed by
Greta. She’s majoring in Primary
Education and expe'cts to teach un
til Jimmy comes marching home
Throughout her three years at Sa
lem, V. V. has been outstanding on
the campus . . . popular with all of
the' girls . . . addicted to bridge
. . . and well representative of what
an I. E. S. President should be:
neat, courteous, amiable, cheerful,
poised, dignified, and understand
AVell, there you have it in a nut
shell ... V. V. from Hickory walk-
cfd off with the election and into the
title of I Represent Salem.
Heave out me hearties! Set your
self up to a treat by coming next
Wednesday at 7:00 p. m. to Old
Cliapol. At that time the Freshmen
and Sophomore home economics
clothing classes will have a cloth
ing exhibit of the garments that
they have made this year. Various
housecoats, smocks, wool skirts,
blouses, dickeys; wool, silk, and vel
veteen dresses will be shown. Each
garment that will be shown has
been made by the girl who will
model it.
Don’t miss it. We guarantee an
evening well spent.

contributing to the war effort, as

Katherine McGeachy of Fayette
ville, defeated Mary Lewis in the
election for Y W. C. A. President,
this afternoon.
Kathjerine’s middle name could
well have been Dependability; for
she has proven her worth in many
ways. For example, who was the
girl with the vivid originality for
planning and making the “Y”
Carnival a glorious success? Who
was the girl behind the pains taking
task of raising the World’s Student
Service Fund Pledge? And who is
the capibl© and active President
of the popular International Relat
ion Club? That girl could be none
other than the smiling, good-nature
‘ ‘ Geachy. ’ ’
Blond, blue^eyed Katherine is a
hard-working and conscientious stu
dent. She likes however her good
time, and “works while she works
and plays while she plays.” Her
easy-going nature and pleasing per
sonality have won her many friends
. and she is a true friend; for
loyalty and kindness are second
nature to her. She always has a
ready smile and a cheery hello for
every one at any time.
So students, you have Katherine
McGreachy—a hard worker, a friend
indeed-for your 1943-44 Y leader.
Once again it was a Thursday aft
ernoon; and an audience composed
chiefly of musicians and a few aca
demic students and interested
townspeople, awaited the striking of
four o’clock for the entrance of the
first performer, Nancy Ridenhour.
Nancy skillfully played “Harmon
ica Player,’’ by Guion, a piece in
the modern jazz idiom, with synco
pation and all the trimmings. Norma
Rhodes (another Marian Gary, just
you watch!), sang in a clear, well-
controlled voice “Poupee Valsante”
by Poldini-La Forge. At the organ,
Betty Withers gave a splendid per
formance of the quiet, serene “Oe-
di.cace, ” by Bonnet. Nymph and
Shepherds,” by Purcell, an unusu
