Two petitions were passed at
special called meetings of the
legislative department on March 25,
1. A petition allowing Freshmen
three nights out a month second se
mester was passed.
2. A peititon, which originated
in the Executive meeting, allowing
a student who has failed or condi
tioned her work to have the choice
of either two week-ends consisting
of one overnight each or one week
end consisting of two over-nights.
All petitions that were passed go
into effect immediately.
3. A petition to the effect that
the nominating committee be al
lowed to reject a student petition
for a candidate only on the basis
of a consistently low scholastic av
erage, a confirmed report of breach
of honor, or complete lack of fa
miliarity with the office and or
ganization for which she is peti
tioned to be nominated . . . This
petition was rejected by the Ex
ecutive Board on the following
grounds: (1) The nominating com
mittee is representative of all
groups and organizations on the
•iampus as well as the faculty; (2)
dominations are made only after
oareful discussion and study; (3)
If a petition is rejected it does
not mean that a girl lacks character
or ability, but that her ability may
lie in other fields; (4) the neces

to sign a tentative roster, mark
ing w^hether they will have a date
or want a blind date. These sheets
have been placed in each dorm
and will be taken down before

girl only $1.^5. This will help de
fray the cost of the meal, a dance,
a movie in the Old Chapel, and re
freshments, as well as a favor for
each boy. The girls who know boj's
at Davidson are asked to invite
them, as it is up to the girls to
ask the boy and not for the boy
to ask for a date. There will be
plenty of blind dates for all the
girls that sign up. If g, Salem girl
has a date from some other place it
is perfectly all right for that couple
Other plans will be disclosed later.

The National College Sophomore
Testing Program will be given at
Salem April 15 and 17, Miss Hix
son, academic dean, announced to
day. The tests will bo given to all
classified sophomores beginning at
2 o’clock on the two days.
The program, which has been
given at Salem for the past four
or five years is especially designed
for sophomores, because at the end
of the sophomore year the student
is supposedly concluding his period
of general education and choosing
his field of specialization. The tost
provides colleges with a method
of measuring the achievements and
interest of their sophomores.
The two teats to be given are
the Cooperative General Culture
Test, a three-hour comprehensive
examination which provides a pro
file of the student’s knowledge of
current social problems, history and
social studies, literature, sciencje,
fine arts, and mathematics. The
test is chiefly a measure of the
cultural background of the indi
vidual regardless of past studies.
The Cooperative Contemporary
Affairs Test covers the fields of
political events, social and econo
mic events, science and medicine,
literature, fine arts, and amuse
ments. It requires 100 minutes of

case, Isaac, the compelling young
musician who appeared in a con
cert in Reynolds Auditorium last
night under the sponsorship of the
Winston-Salem Civic Music Asso
ciation, replied to the questions ask
ed him by the reporter.
“Yes,” he explained, “the young
musicians are getting more chances
now, and the Civic Music Associa
tion has done a lot to make this
possible. Of course, the thing they
must always be up against in the
professional world is the fact that
old, established artists have more
box office appeal, therefore, the
New York offices cater to them.”
Mr. Stern was perturbed about
the weather. In commenting on it
he said that it was certainly in
line with what he had been used to
in Canada and Buffalo, where he
Grinning good-humoredly, Mr.
Stern explained that the long ebony
cigarette holder with which he
was smoking was not for looks
but for health.
Isaac Stern’s concert was artis
tically exe«u,ted throughout. The
“Sonata in G Minor” by Tartini
showed his ability to express the
dignity and nobleness of the com
position. Playing difficult passages
with ease and agility, Stfern cap
tured the mood of the lovely
“Symphonic Espagnole” by Lalo.
Following intermission. Stern
played “Sonata in D Minor” by
Prokofieff with a definite flair for
the abstract. The “Slavonic Dance”
by Dvorak, was played with a great
sensitivity by Mr. Stern. Next was
the strange fascinating “Tijuca”
by Milhaud, followed by “Hun
garian Dance” No. 17, which Stern
played wi^h gypsy-lj^e abandon.
“ Jota,” by Manuel de Falla ex
hibited the variety of techniques
which Stern has in command. Aaron
Copland’s “Hoedown”, from Rodeo
is of especial mention because of
the way in which Mr. Stern cap
tured th'?' typical American spirit
of the barn dance. “Carmen Fan
tasy” by Bizet was done with the
same dramatic, fiery touch that
fascinalted the audiences of “Hu
moresque”, for which Isaac Stern
recorded the musical score.
His encores were well chosen and
brilliantly executed. They were
“Waltz” by Tshaikowsky, “Hora
Staccato” by Dinicu, and “Schon
Rosomarin” by Kreisler.
Formerly in the Wanamaker
Collection, Mr. Stern’s violin has
been valued at $100,000. Compara
tively new to Stern, the graceful
instrument has a brilliance of tone
that could rarely be surpassed.
