Tails Stories^ Lectures
Miss Mary aould Davis, of thef-
New York City Public Library,
gave two lectures on story-telling in
the Salem library Tuesday and
Thilrsday after noons. Miss Sicwera
presided, and Mrs. E. Holder
introduced the spealqer.
“It is the librarian’s privilege to
interpret to the children the lit
erature of all countries,” Miss Davis
stated. There are two major groups
of stories in children’s literature.
On Tuesday, Miss Davis discussed
the traditional stories or folk tales,
the first major grdup of stories.
Using as reference a bibliography of
stories to ycad and tell aloud, she
presented the geographical move
ment of these traditional stories.
‘ ‘ The stories in the East are tlie
oldest, wisest, most subtle, and
often philosophical,” she said. Next
is the literature of the Caucasian
Mountains, of which Skacki is an
example. The Russian composers
turned to these fairy tales for
themes f)r their operas. Then there
is Vari-Kari, which is an example of
the Russian peasant tale.
Then, from Russia, through Ger
many, to the Scandinavian coun
tries there, are found sips _ of
Sliiv'ic mixed w^ith Soandihavian
litterature, and later Scandinavian

Dr. Grollman Speaks
At Tuesday Assembly
“Medicine is more than the
simple art that is presented to
the public,” said Dr. Arthur Groll
man when he spoke in Assembly
Thursday. Dr. Grollman is a pro
fessor at Bowman Gray School of
Dr. Grollman traced the history
of medicine, which began with as
trology and progressed into Boo-
Doo magic and superstition. Hip
pocrates revolutionized medicine
five centuries B. C. when he in
troduced medicine as a practical
science • and the treatment of
patients on this basis. Galen a cen

into practice many of Hippocrates’

of the Renaissance that physicians
began to doubt the old .beliefs and
started basing their diagnoses on

A big responsibility rests in our
hands and in the hands of other
college girls all over the world, said
Dr. Mauze’ in assembly Thursday.
With so many of the boys of the
I'nation in service and with more
girls joining every day, it becomes
more and more evident that the fut
ure—the hope of the days ahead—
rests on young college vromen and
the preparation of their minds and
Dr. Mauze' used for the text of
his talk Psalm 130, verse G; “My
soiil waiteth for the Lord more
than they that watch for the morn
ing.” Darkness, he said, has a de
pressing quality,_ but in light thcTe
is new spirit and encouragement.
He challenged Salem students to
look for the dawn even' in darkness.
The darkness of doubt is some
thing that every thinking person at
some time must face. There is
nothing sinful about doubt; it is a
natural and expected thing. The
danger comes when we think we
know all the answers and close our
minds to new ideas.
The darkness of discouragement
causes more failures in life than any
other thing. Discouragement is the
tool -which Satan prized more than
any of the others when he was
cleaning up his workshop. Yet, even
in discouragement we should look
forward to the coming light. Christ
sees the best in us; let’s be as
He sees us.
^Another great darkness is the
darkness of dread. A child has many
fears—of the dark, of noises, and
of strange people. As we get older
we discard childish fears, but others
take their place. The adult has
fears of financial problems, bad
health, and social problems.
The most fearful darkness comes
toward the end of life. That is
the darkness of death. But we
should remember that “Yea, thougli
I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I ■will fear no evil:
for thou art with me.”
L>r. Mauze’ challenged us as young
people to look for the dawn even in
the darkness of doubt, discourage
ment, fear and death.
