At an impressive service—espe
cially impressive for those poor suf
ferers of stage fright on the plat
form—Lucy Farmer, properly dig
nified, accepted the purple robe from
Sara Henry and became officially
installed as president of Stee Gee-
The empty seats on the stage had
been reserved for those imaginative
people who chose, rather, to sit be
tween chairs—^four girls to two seats
was the worst—and the first row of
chairs was placed there merely for
ornament in the Tuesday chapel.
Lucy administered the oath to mi
nor student government officers
Cozart, Avera, Boseman, and Baynes;
to major campus officers McGeachy,
Garth, Butner, Stone, Grantham,
Rhodes, and Sullivan; to class presi
dents Seville, Denning, and Wooten;
to class representatives on student
government—senior, Lewis, Lindley,
White, Richards; junior, Davis, Har
ris, Neilson, McNair; sophomore,
Little, Witherington, Hege, Griffin
—and to Becky Howell, house presi
dent of Bitting Dormitory.
The seniors became part-alumnae
as the Alma Mater was played, and
the student body left with mingled
feelings of regret at seeing the pld
pass and of hope and confidence in
the new.
Versatile, talented, witty, and
humorous—such are the outstand
ing features of Lindy Stokes, who
will give her graduating recital in
voice next Monday night at eight-
thirty in Memorial Hall. Lindy can
be found working away at counter
point, singing her heart out in Mu
sic Hall, or busily soaking prints in
her dark room in the basement of
Clewell. Nor is Lindy all work and
no play—not by any means. She’s
always the life of the party, a born
clown, eager for a good joke, and

American troojjs in Tunisia battled
fiercely for control of a vital hill
on the road to Tunis and Bizerte
as the Germans launched strong
counterattacks nil along flaming
battlefront. Two strategic hills were
reported captured Monday by the
Americans, and they have also cap
tured Mateur for the greatest land
victory. Mateur is the key to
Bizerte-Tunis defense system. Last
rail line severed as Germans pushed
to rim of inner defenses of ports.
American and British pus^i on to

Bizerte in range of Americans’
heavy guns.
Stalin takes firm stand for full
Axis surrender. Russians attack
fiercely in Caucasus, and Germans
report new Red Army drives near
port six-day German offensive in
the Nbvorossisk area of the Cauca

Russians are gaining ground in
fierce Kuban battle for Caucasus
bridgehead, Germans admitting
with-drawal from Krimskaya.
risr EUROPE-
Germans are using French civi
lians as shilds against Allied bomb
ing of Nazi targets in vital French
industrial areas. Dutch government
in exile urges 400,000 Dutch soldiers
facing imprisonment in Nazi concen
tration camps to make themselves
“unfindable.” Royal Air Force
attacked Essen and other Ruhr in
dustrial targets. British submarines
sank 10 more Axis ships in Medi
terranean. American planes conduct
ed heavy raid on Nazi U-boat base
at St. Nazaire Sunday, losing seven
planes, as British made wide sweeps
over Nazi targets in Europe. Amer
icans made successful daylight rai^
iipon Antwerp, returning without
loss of planes. Germans show in
vasion jitters again, broadcasts in
dicating fear of imminent Allied
attack on Sicily and Sardinia be

in Tunisia.
Long and dangerous North Atlan
tic convoy route now is being pro
tected completely by British and
Canadians air and sea forces.
Sunday night at seven o’clock the
Old Chapel will shine once more in
clear candle light, as the impres
sive Y. W. C. A. Installation Service
takes place. According to tradi
tion, the processional of old and new
members, dressed in white will be led
by the out-going president, Barbara
Hawkins, and the in-coming presi
dent, Katherine McGeachy. After
each member is seated Mr. Weinland
will read the devotionals. Follow
ing the devotionals a recognition of
the new cabinet and the installation
of the new members will be made by
Barbara Hawkins. Katherine Mc-
Geachy, the newly-installed presi
dent will make a challenge to her
new cabinet, followed by the clos
ing prayer by Mrs. Rondthaler.
The 1943 “Y” cabinet members
are seniors: Katherine McGeachy,
president; Mary Lewis, vice-presi
dent; Betty Moore, Kathrine Fort,
Elizabeth Bernhardt and Becky
Howell; juniors: Frances Jones,

vieve Frasier, Jane Frazier, Eliza
beth Gudger and Frances Crowell;

urer; Elizabeth Willis, Edith Long
est, Helen E'obbins, Senora Lindsey
and Jane Lovelace.
A slightly built brunette with
dark eyes smiled slowly as I asked
her questions about her forthcom
ing recital. When I first met Aline
Shamel I was impressed by her
poise, and after being with Aline
a short time I heard her gay laugh
and experienced some of her charm
ing personality. I do believe she has
a major interest in the Marine Corps,
for she has been seen dashing around
the campus with a captain, but Aline
is planning to come back next year
and take a business course.

Miss Dolch and her studio art
class extend a most cordial invita
tion to all students who feel an
urge to sketch the green outdoors.
The class will meet at 2:00 Tu^js-
days, Thursdays and Fridays in the
Art Lab—and receive drawing
boards. Any medium—be it water
color, pastel, crayon, or charcoal—is
acceptable, and may be bought at
and Leningrad. Russians re-1 the Book Store.
From the Art Lab the class will
tour the campus picking out spots
of interest worthy of a sketch pad.
Miss Dolch will give advice and help
to all^ whether art students or not.
The purpose of this informal group
IS to offer encouragement to the
numerous students on campus vrho
have a yen to draw. It is to the
students, who in idle moments, sketch
in their rooms, and wish they had
someone to share their hobby, that
Miss Dolch extends this invitation.
S'o gather up your pencils, brushes
and paper—and “come sketch tvith
Just like a dream—in a pink net
dress with ruffles everywhere; her
mischievous eyes dancing and her
personality radiating throughout the
entire audience—that was Jane
Garrou Thursday night in her grad
uating recital. Jane has a lovely
soprano voice—soft and delicate but
rich in tone quality. Her perform
ance was one of the best, and she
put her audience perfectly at ease
with her friendly attitude.
Her program opened with the
lovely and delicate Se L’aura Spira
by Frescobaldi. Jane showed a
sympathetic interpretation of When
Love is Kind, an old English folk
song. The lovely lyricism in The
Brook’s IiUllaby was delivered with
perfect poise, as well as was Im
patience, both by Schubert.
l*he area, “L’amero Saro Castaate”
(II Re Pastoie) by Mozart contained
beautifully sustained difficult pas
sages in which Jane gave forth
lovely light tones.
Margery Craig, organist, assisted
Jane. Margery’s interpretation of
Handel’s Suite from “Water Mu
sic” portrayed her mastery of the
Jane’s next group opened with
Massenet’s Oh! Si Les Fleurs. This
pretty melody suited Jane’s delicate
voice. In Dolly by F'aure, she sang
with her eyes as well as her voice.
One of the most outstanding num
bers was Debussy’s Mandolin, which
showed an understanding of De
bussy’s style and a definite feeling
for the difficult tempo.
Mrs. Meinung proudly announced
on April 30 that two outstanding
seniors in the Home Economics De
partment have been appointed to
hospitals for graduate study in diet
The students, both of whom ex
pect to accept their appointments,
are Lois Swain and Mary Louise
Park. They are day students.
Lois has been appointed to Christ
Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, and
Mary Louise, to Watts Hospital, in
Durham, North Carolina.
Since most outstanding hospitals
receive many more applications an
nually than they can fill, the ap
pointments are a great honor to the
appointees, to Mrs. Meinung, as head
of the Home Economies Department,
and to Salem College.
The department and college are
already well represented by gradu
ates of past years who now hold
positions at Cook County Hospital
in Chicago, at the University of
Georgia Medical School in Augusta,

with her performance of -Grand
Piece Symphoniiiue by Franck. She

International Relations
Club Meeting
Miss Turlington spoke on “Gov
ernment Agencies” at the meeting
of the International Relations Club
Wednesday night. She explained
the significance and the functions of
the various war agencies.
The present strike problem was ex
tensively discussed as to its relation
to the War Labor Board. Follow
ing the talk there was a general
Lib Bernhardt, accompanied at the
piano by Jo McLauchlin, sang sev
eral patriotic songs. Refreshments
were served.
On Thursday morning at the re
gular assembly hour, the, survivors
of the preliminary speech contest
vied for top honors in the finals.
The winner of the Monte Cohen cup
for the second consecutive year was
Katherine McGeachy.
T'he contestants, Mary Margaret
Struven, Katherine McGeachy, and
Lucille Newman, spoke on the sub
jects: The Food Problem Today, A
Lasting Peace, and Stephen Vincent
Benet, respectively.
Beginning the contest, Struvie im-I
mediately called to the food rat
ioning in the United States to
day. In graphic fashion, she briefly
told the audience that it must con
sume all sorts of vegetables, meats,
milk, butter or reasonable facsimiles
in order to survive. Later she point
ed out that food is a war weapon;
and, in order to supply this weapon,
the U. S. must send one-half of its
canned foods aboard. Adding that
no one should waste foods, Struvie
urged her audience to help provide
more by planting Victory gardens
this summer.
Then arose Geachy, second cup-
seeker. By pointing out that the
U. S., through reason and logic,
has developed a no-possiblity-for-
permanent-peace attitude she con
trasted America with the Nazi, who
has faith and spirit, who believes
in his cause, and who, if necessary,
will die for his beliefs. By first show
ing that all nations must cooperate
to maintain peace, Geachy went still
further and rested the issue on the
people asking “Are you willing to
sacrifice personal freedom in order
to reach a more meaningful group
freedom? Do you have responsibility
to the larger freedom?” And finally,
Geachy vowed the world would be
I>eaceful only if all nations were
unselfish, if practiced good will to
ward others.
Lucille Newman, the final speaker,
arose and swept her audience away
with a lecture on poet Benet. IHrst,
after she had announced that Steph
en Benet was dead, she pointed
out that his work still lives, his
work which is America itself. She
told her audience how the poem
John Brown’s Body” has caught
the spirit of America as She fought
the Civil war; sho made her listeners
actually chase the Yanks with her
happy Little Black Children.”
And when she shifted to the wit
and humor, found in Benet’s short
stories, she pointed out not only

“I must admit to feeling queer
Whenever, mister, you are near;
My heart begins to race, I know
I have a touch of vertigo ...
S’o maybe this is love, but, chum^
It could be lack of calcium.”
—Alyce Hamilton.
It was vitamins—not love—that
took the spotlight in the darkened
Old Chapel Wednesday night. May
5, when the Home Economics Club
sponsored a movie in technicolor on
this subject. The pictures showed
the effects on the body caused by de
ficiencies of the food alphabet. It
showed that even “goose-stepping”
can ,be caused by a vitamin defic
iency. Now the story can be told
about Adolf!
Fat is an important element in
one’s diet—^but no so desirable else
where. Ana as long as sun baths
are the fad at Salem, no one should
be lacking vitamin D. It is even
desirable to have plenty of complex
as far as food is concerned—not of
the inferior sort but the “B-1” clas
sification. ■“
So watch those Gremlins and don’t
let them exchange your dish of
carrots for a coca-cola and a pack
age of nabs—you might be the next
victim of beri-beri.
