Crisis Nears
Crucial Point
In Palestine
by Ruth Lenkoski
The crisis in Palestine is still a
threating one. The Jews claim
that the Arabs have already crossed
the Palestinian border in a couple
of places. The Arabs deny this. F>ir-
theriBore, the British have prepared
reinforcements to resist any Arab
attacks occuring before May 15, the
termination of their mandate.
Now the Arabs may not attempt
an attack so readily since it is be
lieved that the British are stronger
than they. The struggle has been
quieted somewhat by attempts of
the British to draw truces in Jerusa
lem and Jaffa between the Jews and
the Arabs.
Meanwhile, the situation is grow
ing more critical and will eventually
break. The U. N. is conscious of the
happenings. Unfortunately the TJ.
N. members’ hands are tied because
of a deadlock in decisions. So while
the U. N. sits helpless at Lake Suc
cess, Palestine and her problems re
main iinaided and unsolved with no
alternative but all-out war between
Jews .and Arabs.
In this country, a nation-wide rail-
w.ay strike is still threatening, pos
sibly materializing on May 11. The
workers have not been able to nego
tiate with the railroad owners, there
fore, a strike is the alternative which
has already crippled and will con
tinue to cripple the U. S. Also on
the labor front, the auto workers
are about to strike after failing to
negotiate with the owners.
The United States Armed Services
Committee has passed the bill to
draft men from 19 to 2.5 for 2 years
in the armed forces. This is exempt
ing veterans. Secretary of Defense
Forrestal called this an “excellent
bill” and urged that it be passed.
The bill still must pass the House,
the Senate, and the President, but
it is believed that it will go through.'

Dr. Chakravarty Speaks
On Tagore And Gandhi
Dr. Amiya Chakravarty of Cal
cutta, India, spoke to Salem Col
lege and Academy students in Mem
orial Hall, March 4.
Dr. Chakravarty is making a
tour of the United States under the
auspices of the American Fricnd.s
Service Committee and in addition
to his talk at Salem, he addressed a
limited group at a dinner at the
Friends Meeting House. Tjater he
made a public address on the “Rus-
sian-Ameriean Tensions as Seen from
India.”
In this speech he said that in the
short time he has been in this coun
try he has seen a wide obscurity
of the sense of truth. “America
feels that a superior means of des
truction is a prevention of war. This
picture is so’ instilled in the peoples ’
minds by militarists, the press and
the radio, that they are weighted
with fear and think every day of
how to kill Russians.”
He then presented the other side
of tlie picture: “Do you think the
Russian people want war? They, too,
are shaking in their shoes.” He
said the people of both countries are
being led by the nose, so to speak,
by a few who have perfected horri
ble gadgets they want to see worked.
He urged Americans to throw their
weapons aside and tell the rest of
the world that they will not be a
party to its violence.
At Salem Tuesday, Dr. Chakra
varty talked specifically on “The
Poet and the Saint” discussing the
Indian poet, Tagore, and Gandhi,
both of whom he has known inti
mately.

Girls Go
To Capital
To Lobby
by Peirano Aiken
A round trip to Washington, a
visit to the State Department, a
dozen new friends and the knowledge
that we may have acomplished a
tiny bit toward peace—all for $10.00.
This was the rare bargain enjoyed
by Lee Fleshman of the Academy
and I, along with 52 other students
representing 14 North Carolina col
leges and universities, on a World
Government delegation last weekend.
On the bus Sunday morning we
settled down to become acquainted
and discuss our purpose. It was pro
mptly revealed that the one and only
thing the group could agree on was
World Government, which meant pro
moting a revisional conference of
the U. N., if possible under House
resolution 59.
About 7:00 that night we reachcd
Washington, ate dinner, conferred
with local Federalists and, after
much direction-asking, arrived at our
destination. The House on Cedar
Street. It sounds like the House on
Rue Morgue, but actually it was a
harmless Victorian little house main
tained as a hostel for student groups
visiting Washington.
Monday morning we met at the
Williard Hotel and made our way to
Senator Hoey’s office to interview
the North Carolina Congressmen.
The Senator, spic and span in liis
grey striped cut-away coat with
red tie and carnation and cameo
stickpin, had his picture taken with
the girls, and, in effect, patted our
heads and told us that ‘ ‘ things take
time.” Fortunately we had all
known this was true in regard to
world conditions, but we were to
realize that it was even more true
with Senator Hoey. The practical
knowledge gained from the inter
view’ was that all of the N. C. Con
gressmen support resolution 50, ex-

educational center where people thro
ughout the world gather to break
down barriers of nationality.
He also described the essential
points in Gandhi’s program of non
violence, or truth-force, these being
essentially, he said, non-retaliat
ion with military weapons and a
conscious effort to reconcile conflict
ing groups.
Concerning Gandhi he said, “He
brought us the fundamental princi
ples of life which cannot be quest
ioned any more than we question a
mother’s love for her baby. Gandhi
was a success whose life did not end
with the assassin’s bullet.”

Paddles
T o Victory
by Gloria Paul
The ping-pong tournament which
recently captivated the residents of
Clewell basement came to a climax
Tuesday. The three finalists. Sis
Hines, Gloria Paul and Cammy Love
lace,' decided after battling that
Cammy was champion.
Cammy beat Sis Hines two conse
cutive games by the scores, 11-7 and
11-9. She then took Gloria Paul by
two out of three games. Gloria won
the first 11-7 but Cammy won the
last two games—11-9 and 11-91
Prosh Top Seniors
Some might say that the seniors
were off on Monday. Others might
say that the seniors met their Water
loo because they lacked the strength
of Isabel Leeper and Jean Griffin.
True, but the freshman played an
almost perfect game—at bat and in
the field. The freshmen were also
well backed by Ann Eixey, their
pitcher. How about the score—24-2?
During the first two innings the
seniors did not set foot on the bases,
no less bring in any runs. The fresh
man at opportune moments raced
about the bases to bring in a total
of eleven runs.
In the first half of the third in
ning Sophie Bowen came in the first
senior run. In the last half of that
inning the freshmen streak was kept
up and Jo Dunn hit a homerun. Five
other runs came in.
Ann Mills came up at the top of
the last inning with a home run, thus
boosting the morale of the seniors.
All was in vain, however, since the
freshen returned to bat for the last
time to boost the score up even
higher; the final score was 24-2.
Eaton Seville Named
All American Collegian
Eaton Seville
A few days ago the monthly issue
of Campus Parade, the magazine for
college men and women, arrived at
the Salemitc office. This magazine
specializes in articles on all col
lege’s activities, short stories writ
ten by collegiates and interviews of
outstanding campus personalities.
As we flipped the pages idly, whose
faco should suddenly loom up but
our own Eaton Seville! The follow
ing is a reprint of the article as it
appeared in Campus Parade.
‘ ‘ Eaton Seville, petite, blonde and
attractive, possesses boundless en
ergy and many interests, making her
one of the most promising rising
seniors at Salem College in Winston-
Salem, North Carolina. During her
not-quite-three years at Salem, Eaton
has shown her adeptness in such di-.
verse fields as sports, scholarship,
and student government.
At the beginning of this semester,
she was admitted to the Honor Soci
ety. This is not a surprise, however,
because she had been |ti the Deans’
list for the past two years.
But no one who has watched Eaton
on thev basketball court could ever
call her a book worm. Her quick
ness and gracefulness as a forward
make her the pride of the junior
class team. During her sophomore
year she made the basketball varsity
team as\well as the hockey varsity.
Eaton began her “politiking” her
freshman year, serving as secretary
of her class. Then she was elected
president of the sophomore class and
this year she is secretary of the Stu
dent Government Association.
A true southerner, Eaton hails
from Statesville, North Carolina.
Her double major is mathematics
and history.”
There it is, the story of a local
girl who made good. Congratula
tions, EatonI
North Carolina seemed to feature
in this issue with an article about
the Carolina Playmakers at Chapel
'Hill and a bit of whimsical nonse
nse w^ritten by a High Point college
student.
