Salem College at a meeting of the
North Carolina Athletic Federation
of College Women to be held at the
Women’s College in Greensboro on
The meeting will consist of regis
tration from 10:30-11 o’clock, a
preliminary business meeting from

ing from 2-3:30. Representatives
from Meredith College, Duke Wo
men’s College, University of North
Carolina, WCUNC, and Salem will
be present to approve or reject a
tentative constitution which was
adopted at UNO February 7.
Such an organization as the pro
posed constitution sets forth can
serve a vital purpose in emphasiz
ing and promoting women’s athletics
in North Carolina. It would work
to bring the associations from differ
ent schools in closer contact with
each other, and mutual benefit could
be derived from discussing problems
which are common to all of the
schools. As an organised group it
would sponsor state-wide sports
days, seasonal sports days, the pub
lication of a state bulletin, and, in
general, bring schools closer to
By Catherine Gregory
Last Tuesday the Pierrettes and
the Drama class entertained at tea
for John Mason Brown. Stiff, for
mal we sat, awaiting the arrival
of the fabulous gentleman. He swept
in, met people, talked to everyone
at once, and generally established
himself. He inquired about Dr.
Willoijghby’s Shakespeare class, and
informed that it was offered in
alternate years, twinkled, “Oh, sort
of A. C., instead of D. C.” He settled
back on the sofa and faced the room,
looking exactly like a drama critic
in a Men of Distiction ad. And then
he talked. We were drawn into his
conversation and in a few words he
had deftly spun the web of illusion:
the glitter of Broadway seen through
the eyes of a sophisticated intel-
lectural. He told us of the plays:
why No Exit had failed, and what
he thought of the opera version of
Street Scene, he discoursed on
repertoire theaters, and why he
disliked them. He commented on
The Wayward Bus, and Steinbeck’s
press agent would pale into insigni
ficance before him. In short, he talk
ed charmingly and entertainingly.
Then he put on his baggy overcoat,
thanked us for tea, and left in a
sea of smiles.
A dinner will bo given honoring
Mile. Annette Alvarez Fridty at
Q o’clock. The other guests at the
dinner will be the faculty of the
Department of Modern Language,
the officers of the French Club
and the girls whoso first major is
French. After tho dinner Mile.
Alvarez will lead a discussion on
‘ ‘Protestantism in France” in Louisa
Mile. Alvarez has worked for the
McCall Protestant Mission in Paris.
She is now a Girl Scout executive in
Paris. There the Girl Sco'uts are
closely affiliated with the churches,
both Protestant and Catholic. Com
ing here from Springfield and New
York, the speaker will spend two
weeks in Winston-Salem and then
go to Chicago. She will be in the
United States for five months.
