Seiuen Seniors Ctoscii For Yearljook
Represent Varied Stndent Interests
Seven members of the Class of

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.
Mary Lucy Baynes of Winston-
Salem, N. C. was freshman day-stu-
dent representative to the I. R. S.
and was vice-president of her soph
omore class. During her junior year
Mary Lucy was treasurer of the
Student Government, treasurer of
the Athletic Association, a Senior
Marshal, and a member of the
Salemite staff. As a senior she is

Association. Mary Lucy is a charter
member of the Honor Society.
Mary fellen Byrd of Morganton,
N. C. was Freshman Editor of the
Sights and Insights and served on
the Salemite staff during her soph
omore year. As a junior Mary Ellen

Insights, and House President of
Alice Clewell dormitory. This year
she is Editor-in-Chief of the Salemite
and a member of the Nominating
Committee. Mary Ellen has made
class honors for the past three years
and is a charter member of the Honor
Society.

Art Historian
Speaks On
Excavations
Miss Elizabeth Chase spoke in
Assembly Thursday on the subject
of art history. 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is an original historical document,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

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. They
have captured the important port
of Kirkenes. In Poland, the Rus
sians have outflanked Warsaw. The
German radio has reported that they
have successfully counterattacked.
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
