Mildred is brown-haired, grey-
eyed, and wears a cheerful smile
whenever and wherever you may
happen to see her — which is usu
ally in the gym. Mildred’s a whiz
at basketball; and unless our mem
ory fails us, she played a highly
creditable game of hockey for the
junior class last fall. Mildred’s
pleasing personality and easy going
manner have made her popular with
the boarders as well as the day stud

Salem’s young composers have
gained the headlines frequently in
recent weeks. Now you will have an.
opportunity to actually hear their
conpositions. Sunday evening at
nine 5 o'clock the weekly Salem
broadcast over WSJS will feature
the six original compositions which

Greensboro several weeks ago. The
other outstanding feature will be
a two piano number played by Lacy
Lewis and Dr. Vardell.
Elizaberth Johnston will play her
two piano composition “Prelude”
and “Mood Caprice”. Both of these
numbers are in a characteristic mod
em idiom and are most interesting.
These are the two compositions
which took prize in the North Car

Composers Contest.

On Lecture Series
Edward Weeks, editor of the At
lantic Monthly, husband and father,
golf and pool fan will speak to Sa
lem College, Tuesday night, April
6, at 8:00. In Jijg lecture, he will
relate many illuminating and amus
ing anecdotes from his many expe
riences as the Atlantic Monthly’s
editor, and will discuss the import
ant trends in American letters to
day. His lectures are .brilliant, for
the hearers have full confidence in
his ability to discuss with author
ity the books he comments on. Mr.
Weeks also has the ability to see
all classes of society. He has twice
earned his way across the Atlantic
Ocean, and during his college days,
he worked one summer as a harvest
hand in the Kansas wheat fields. Of
his harvesting, Edward Weeks says:
“I was not very deft with the
pitchfork, and in between jobs^ to

Students of the voice department
presented an unusual and most
gratifying recital at Music Hour
yesterday afternoon. Those taking
part in the program were students
of Mr. Bair, Mrs. Starr, and Miss
Swaim. The ' first group offered
three solos from the “Messiah.”
Ella Lou Taylor projected herself
well into the' deeply-moving “He
Was Despised.” “I Know That
My Redeemer Liveth” and “Rejoice
Greatly” were sung by Mildred
Transou and Jane Frazier, respec
tively. Both, girls were in excellent
voice and used their voices to great
advantage. In the second group
Norma Rhoades sang Mozart’s “Al
leluia” with light but flexible voice.
Jane Garrou sang “The Brook’s Lul
laby,” by Schubert and Betty Wil-
liard, “In Evening’s Glow,” also by
Schubert. These were well sung and
ably portrayed.
Of particular interest on the pro
gram were three students who study
with senior voice majors. Billy Gray,
youthful, red-headed, and always
full of fun, sang “Passing By,” by
Purcell. Billy studies with Lindy
Stokes. Grace Lane, pupil of An
nie Hyman Bunn, sang “Caro Mio
Ben,” by Giordoni. Another clear
l^oy soprano, Bobby Simmons, pu
pil of Marian Gary, sang “My
Lovely Celia,” arranged by Wilson.
Bobbj’s lovely high soprano was

Not overly ambitious, yet cer-.
tainly capable, is she; for she can
write a short story as easily as she
can swallow a shomach pump. Al
though she’s a Home Ec. major,
Nancy creates and carries out her
gift of originality as a staff writer
of the SALEMITE and as a member
of the Pierrettes. She almost put
on “Stage Door” single-handed
from back-stage last year; and this
year she’s appearing before the'
audience in the forthcoming produc
tion, “Pure As the Driven Snow.”
You may also remember her as the
beautiful Greek god in the last May
Pole dances ... or as the hideously
burlesqued Cloopartra in the last
Sophomore stunt.
S|ince her Freshman year, this
Southerner has been a striking per
sonality in the class . . . outstand
ing for her sincere interest in al
most every thing that occurs about
the campus. Salem should look for

sure to burst with the personality
and ingenuity of this clever cosmop
olitan chairman.
