Though this was her first trip to
North Carolina, Mrs. Dean has
traveled in the deep South, includ
ing Alabama, (with a broad “a”),
Mississippi, and Louisiana. She was
favorable impressed, she said, with
“the active thinking that is be-
inging done in the South about all
problems. ”
On the subject of her education
Miss Dean offered little information,
saying only that she received all
her university schooling in this
country. She majored in Internation
al Liny, taking her A. B. degree at
Eadofiffe, her M. A. at Yalt, and
returning to Radcliffe for her P.

language students particularly.
Mrs. Dean left the impression of
the quiet efficiency of one crusad
ing for intelligent thinking of post

Sports Rambling
Shall we go play a game of birdies
and rackets over a high net? You
know—most people call it badmin,-
ton, but I really see nothing “bad”
about it, and confidentially I don’t
see where the “minton” comes from
either. So with cattish curiosity
out of band, let’s take a look at
somebody who knows.
According to the Encyclopedia
Americana, the game now called
badminton is in reality a modifi-
eation of the very ancient game of
battledore and shuttlecock. Which
game, continues our authority, was
a popular game invented in the
14th century tha^ employed the
use of a bat shaped like a tennis
racket and a shattlecock consisting
of sc cork stuck with feathers. With
this formidible background, the
background, the object of the game
is still to bat the formerly de
scribed luet now slightly modi
fied shuttlecock or birdie across
a high net with the aforesaid
bat or racket so as to keep the
birdie in a most inconvenient
position fdr 'your opponent and
still Sold an advantage for your
self.
The verbatious encyclopedia con
tinues with complicated court
dimension and rules, but if you
would really like to know more
about the game, see Anne Douthit,
and while you’re at it, sign up
for the badminton tournament.
So few around here seem to know
what it’s all about that the de
scription of the game might in
troduce you to the sport. After
an introduction, you should get
better acquainted—so see you in
the gym getting acquainted with
bad-little-Minton!
P. S. If you are’nt ‘ ‘ badly” in
clined, try softball. When Spring
Physical Education Activities
To Be Demonstrated Wednesday
On Wednesday aftrnoon, March
212, from 4:45 to 5:45 there will be
a demonstration of gym class activi
ties by the. sophomore and freshmen
classes in the gymnasium with every
one invited'. This demonstration will
illustrate the class organization of
physical education here at Salem.
First on the program ivill be the
sophomore class in a march. They
will go through various figures that
have been taught in class. Next,
the freshman class will swing
through their rhythmical activities
which make up their class instruc
tion. These activities include: (1)
swinging rhythm involving the ef
fect of the arms on the entire .body
movement, (2) gallop skipping il
lustrating sustained movement, and
(3) drill which involves many of
the principles of marching.
Many people have the erronious
impression that physical education
involves only the learning of sports-
This demonstration is being given
for the public to show that .here
at Salem, physical education em
braces more than the learning of
sports, and to show some of the
class activities that pr6ve this.
