HAZEL WATTS RACHEL PINKSTON JANE FRAZIER Seiuen Seniors Ctoscii For Yearljook Represent Varied Stndent Interests Seven members of the Class of 1945 have been chosen to represent Salem College in Who’s Who Among Students In American Universities and Colleges; Mary Lucy Baynes, Mary Ellen Byrd, Nell Denning, Jane Frazier, Emily Harris, Rachel Pinkston, and Hazel Watts. Who’s Who Among Students In American Universities and Colleges is “a national basis of recognition for students, devoid of polities, initiation fees, and dues.” It serves a threefold purpose—an incentive for students to obtain the maximum from their college careers, a means of compensation for past accomplish ments of students, and a recommen dation to the business world. Salem students appearing in this publication are selected by a nom inating committee of faculty mem bers appointed by the administra tion. The chief requirements con sidered in selecting these students are character, leadership in extra curricular activities, scholarship, and potentialities of future usefulness to business and society.

Miss Chase, a former teacher at Salem Academy, is now a member of the faculty of the undergraduate school at Yale uni versity. Recalling earlier impressions of museums as a kind of "tomb,” Miss Chase now considers a museum much alive. To her, every work of art is an original historical document, revealing the life of the past. Miss Chase told of the discoveries of a group of Yale archeologlsts in 1928 in Syria and of their interesting significance. In this Mesopotamian area, the British first uncovered paintings and invited American archeologists to investigate. A city was unearthed and believed to be Deura Europus. Later a confirmation was made as to the identity of the city. A^ong the most interesting ob jects found that te>l the story of Ducra Europus are personal be longings — combs, pins, toys, and coins. Religous monuments to Roman and Greek gods have been unearth ed. A Christian chapel which could have been established by one of the apo.stles was also found in the city. Emily Kimbrough Will Deliver First Lecture Tuesday Night Slafiti 04i> Ne4APi By Hazel Watts The Allies have made slow pro gress in Italy, Greece, and in the Belgiuni-Holland sector. The Ger man resistance is expected to be broken at any time, but as yet their defences are holding. The Russians are piishing ahead, having just invaded Norway.

The fall of Warsaw,‘however, is anticipated in the near future. All other news is overshadowed by the naval battle in the Pacific. Since early in 1943, the United States Navy has been endeavoring to engage the Japanese fleet in a major battle. The Nipponese Navy has taken flight every ■ time it has steen the possibility of an engage ment. Now, unavoidably, the Japa nese have been engaged and defeat ed. ^ Emily Kimbrough, well known co author with Cornelia Otis Skinner of Our Hearts Were Young and Gay, will lecture at Salem Tuesday, Oc tober 31st. She herself says, f‘I love to talk, and it is wonderful to have an audience trapped and de fenseless before me.” Miss ^imbrough maintains that chances for success in any work are measured by the fun one has doing it. As she has been with equal dis tinction an editor, a writer, and a public speaker, she speaks with some authority on success. That she knows about fun is proved by what Cor nelia Otis Skinner says of her: “Emily is a living magnet alike for high adventure and mad disaster, and from all her experiences she mer ges triumphant and more entertain ing than ever. There are plenty cf people who are ■ amusing some of the time and who are so professional abou^ it they become anything else but^ The person, however, who is spontaneously and effortlessly amus ing all the time is a rara avis, of which I know only one — Emily. Kimbrough.” Her first job was in the advertis ing department at Marshall Field, Chicago, and from that she became editor of Field’s “Fashions of th^ Hour” and one of the best-dresaed (Cont. on page three) EMILY HARRIS MARY LUCY BAYNES Munsel, Coloratura, Is To Sing Friday Patrice Munsel, nineteen year old coloratura soprano of the Metropoli tan Opera, will appear on November third in the second Civic Music Concert of the season.
