Boo! Back again as you can see,
Why no—you can’t get rid of me!
No matter what you do or where you go
I’ll be right there, spying you know.
But as I wasn’t saying—Ilmm lets see—
Tell me what’d be finer than to be
Not in Carolina, but at Salem and to hear—
You shall my chillum, have no fear.
The sister’s House could well change its name
With visiting brothers it’s acquiring immortal fame.
Of Irene Dixon and Janala,—some affair
Returning from home with two men in their snare.
Two dates last week for Lou—what folly,
P^r she couldn’t go out at night—so solly!
“Babe” Efird I hear you are in a trance
Since “the one” called and is back from France.
Betty Hatley was so delirious over her call
That a week-end in the infirmary meant nothing at all.
So? On Saturday night Mary Stevens has a standig date.
Poor child, teach him to sit down; it’s not too late.
We’re glad to see Ridenhour all aglow,
Yep, none other than that very special beau.
And already fixed for the week-end is “Pig ’ Burton,
Sure she’s got ’em lined up. That’s smart to be certain.
I wonder what that hunk of a man,
Who starred in “Two Girls and a Sailor”—alias Van,
Would think of little Gaither and Simm
If he’d gotten that call that was charged to him.
At Christmas? What’s this about Caroline lEll?
Marriage, apartment furnished? Wow, what a kill!
Speaking of kills—Say Teau weren’t you dead?
Twenty minutes in the phone booth—bet your feet were like lead.
Fifteen minutes in my language is “long time no see”
That’s Officer Bill’s motto too, eh Bunny?
She sprained her ankle, that po’ HI Dysart,
And all over a man! Child, ain’t right smart!
Anne, Fan, and Helen can stand it no longer,
So they’re off to Morganton—What could be wrong(er)
No kidding tho’ a good time we’re wishing
And I know they’ll have it if Mary Ellen they’re visiting.
Invitation, invitations and they’re all from Chapel Hill,
Gave Marie, Gudger, and Luanne quite a big thrill.
What were you playing Mamie? Hide and go seek?
Couldn’t see a thing when thru’ the door we’d peek.
If at first you don’t succeed, take a lesson from Grenshaw,
She’s got a picture of her first love and I don’t mean her maw!
“Miss An inch” is as good as a mile, “I hope!”
Says Peggy scraping paint off a truck—the dope.
News sounds good and that’s a fact.
Telegrams, telegrams for D. Little and Lou Stack.
Not one, not two, but three she rates—
Does he really love “Izzy” or is it the destines—the fates?
To whom belong the red roses of second floor,*
Come on “fess up” we’d like to have more.
We knew Bettye Bell specialized in mobs.
But now my pals ’Tain’t nothing but gobs.
“Big Dog” Wooten got Julia a date—and ’Twas civilian,
Strange, I thot Garrett Specialized in A-l’st by the million!
lleservations may be hard, but Betsy Long, none the less,
Is to eat turkey at Harvard with Ed, I guess.
And not to be beaten, Snyder’s trailing behind
With her trip to Baltimore well in mind.
Evelyn what’s the matter? You scared of yo’ pals?
Tom calls and the doors close on the Society Gals.
Fort Bragg—^what’s that to do with little Walton or Bed?
Ooh—he was wonderful, or so she said ? ? ? ?
A certain Teeny is walking on air—
Is that the influence of the Butler affair?
Our sympathy to the poor little lad
He couldn’t remember name?—^How terribly sad!
Why that’s a laugh, Coit—K casual acquaintance?
What’s that fifteen page letter? Your maintenance?
Speaking of acquaintances—it is “Miss” Garrison in class
But outside school it’s just Mildred—alas, alas!
Adele, Pink, Haze, and Sauls were sho’ lucky,
Those four officers were really quite “ducky.”
Ish was up here and in more than one way
He told Boaty “au re voir”—’twas all he could say.
I’m not as versitile as Ish—hope I may die.
And can’t say it but one way—Toodle doo and good^ bye!! 1
— L. E. D.
There’s something in the air (and
I do not mean the aroma of tobacco)!
Have you freshmen noticed? I would
just delight in spilling all of the
details about this “something,” but
I honestly do not know them. And
even if I did, Frances Jones would
most likely censor this so—all I
can say now is that it sounds tres
interesant!! You’ll be hearing soon
Until then just snoop for your

Wef thought you creatures looked

Though there is no compulsory
worship except assembly and though
th(?re are no mothers here to compel
you to attend religious services, you
will inevitably find a vacant spot
in your spiritual life if you do
not go to vespers and “ Y” Watch.
Our vespers are equivalent to your
B. T. TJ., League, or Fellowship
at home; our “Y” Watch, to your
mid-w0ek prayer service. A special
privelege, the morning devotionala
come extra. The quiet, the music
lid the scriptures of the morning
devotionals awaken something from
dePp within. Try it.
It was wonderful to have the
Y” room overflowing with girls
at “Y” Watch last Thursday night.
We would like for the faculty mem
bers to feel free to come to this
short service, too. This would plc^ase
us greatly. To those who live in
Sisters’ House, Lehman, Society,
Louisa Bitting, and Strong dormi
tories, we would like to bring the
Y” Wateh over to meet with you
some Thursday night. May wO? But
til we do, please slip on your trench
coat and come over to the “Y” room.

Edgar Ijec Masters, author and
poet, who is living in Charlotte this
winter, will lecture April 8. Mr.
Masters whose fame first came in
1015 with the publication of his
Spoon River Anthology, is the author
of a large number of books.
A specialist in and an amazing
analyst of the pcfople of the Orient,
Humar Gosehal will lecture on “Men
Who Control India’s Destiny” April
23. Mr. Gosehal has given equal
thought to the spiritual, economic,
and historical problems of both the
East and the West. It is indicative
that he titled his book The People of
India, for it is to the people that
he goes for his information.
Over in Strong Dormitory there
is one petite Freshman appropriately
nicknamed ‘ ‘ Little Bit”. ‘ ‘ Little
Bit’s real name is Anne Hairston,
anil she comes to Salem from Oak-
ridge, Tennessee. In case you haven’t
seen her yet, it’s because she’s a
music major and spends most of
her time up at Memorial Hall.
One interesting thing about Anne
is her descension from a long line
of Salem alumnae. Seventeen of her
predecessors attended Salem, al
though there is actual record of
but thirteen. Anne’s great grand
mother, Anne Elizabeth Lash George,
was at the time of her death th'e
oldest living alumnae of the
If you have read Dr. Fries’s “The
Road to Salem,” you may remember
the mention of Jacob Laesh. Anne is
a direct descendant of this member
of the early Moravian settlement.
Of course Anne feels right at home
here at Salem as do so many other
daughters and granddaughters of
old Salem girls. But “Little Bit’^
is proving herself very much a part
of our school in her own right. Next
time you see a “Little Bit” ot a
Freshman with long light brown hair
and an infectious grin, ask her to
show you her scrapbook record of
some of her Salem ancestors. You’ll
soon become so interested in Anne
herself that her “family” will be
more excuse for the visit.

Has anyone seen Betsy Long?
Is she in her room?”
“IToom! . . . You must be kidding!
But try the Clewell Smokehouse; and
if she isn’t there now, she will be
before you leave.”
And the gal doesn’t even smoke.
She comes to us from Saint Mary’s;
so maybe that’s why. Betsy just
can’t get accustomed to Salem’s
leniency. In fact, she still tries to
sign out everytime she goes across
to the drug!
Betsy also finds a great difference
in the dormitory life this year; how
ever, she says that there are so
many of her old friends here that
she feels quite at home. Her room
mate, .Tayne Bell, is also a graduate
of Saint Mary’s.
At present, Betsy is planning to
major in English and minor in
Spanish. She likes all her teachers
here and finds her classes lots of
fun. She is exceedingly interested
in current events. . . the walls of ,
her room are completely covered
Though she’s had no real trainii>'>-
Betsy has always loved flying. Her
flrst ambition, to become a foreign
correspondent, was completely dis
carded after a plane trip from here
to Knoxville several years ago. From
that time forth, she’s been all out
Betsy claims that the first three
years were the most eventful in her
life. She traveled widely, though she
doesn’t remember too much about
it all. And when she was only eigh
teen months old, her tonsils were re
moved. “But that’s not all,” she says
proudly. ‘ ‘ My nose has been broken
Betsy is also a girl of great ver
satility. She loves talking to people,
playing bridge, and d.ancing; but
most of all she lov’es those week-ends
off-campus, particularly the ones at
West Point and Carolina. As for
dates, she chooses Kappa Sigs and
Navy men, but “there’s nothing
wrong with the Air Corps either!”
Betsy’s interests are not all social.
She also enjoys modeling at Mon-
taldo’s and doing any kind of war
work, especially for the Red Cross.
We Salemites welcome Betsy as
one of us and wish her a most suc
cessful year at Salem.
(P. S. Betsy hates pictures and
wouldn’t let us print one of her.)
