Mr. B. Carson French Says
South Is Fascinating
by Fay Stickney
Knowing that I would be enlight
ened on my first interview, Carolyn
gave me a choice assignment. This
was my big chance—an appointment
with a fellow New Englander, Mr.
Carson Erench. Ink, pen, paper in
my hand, and a few scattered ques
tions in my head, I trapped Mr.
French en route from the dining
room to Society, where he is tempor
arily residing.
Having no sense of originality,
my first question was, “Tell me, sir,
how do you like Salem?” For a
few hour-like seconds here reigned
a deadly silence. I noticed he was
shaking his head violently. “Oh
dear,” I thought, “I’m a failure.
How can I ever print what I was
certain he was going to say.” Ano
ther moment of ecclesiastical silence.
“Well, Fay, it’s like this,” he
said with a broad A accent, “I just
love Salem’s friendly atmosphere
and quaintly attractive campus but
“Here it comes,” I said to my
self, “I might as well skip this
question and try my luck at an
“You wait until the rest of the
French family arrives, then it will
be home.” With a big smile on
his face, he went on to inform me
that he has two school age children
■—maybe future Salemites! Inciden
tally, I found that the entire French
family, bag and baggage, is expected
on campus the first week in Novem
At this point I discontinued my
Mr. Carson French
questioning, and kept my scratchy
pen flying as his conversation
Mr. French is well-qualified ^ to
teach chemistry. After graduating
from Yale, he taught chemistry in
Belmont, Mass., a suburb of Boston.
The last few summers he has been
doing research for the B. B. Chemi
cal Company.
Mr. French admitted that “he was
fascinated with southern style and
beauty” and especially the typically
Southern salutation, “H’yew.” He
also found Park Hall “adequate,”
but, like everyone else, is eagerly
anticipating the new science build
Cold War
Rages Hot
In U. N.
by Ruth Lenkoski
This week is a grave period in the
history of the United Nations and
of the world. The “cold war” be
tween Western Powers and the So
viet has reached the long pending
crisis at the opening sessions of the
U. N. Security Council.
After breaking off all negotita-
tions with Russia last week, the
Western Powers have referred the
problem of Berlin to the Security
Council. The attempt, which is be
ing made to put the Berlin crisis on
the agenda is bitterly opposed by
Russia. Not only will the Soviets
vote against putting the problem on
the agenda, which would then be
passed on to the Assembly, but Vish-
insky said that Russia will boycott
the Security Council on the basis
that the U. N. has no right to inter
fere and that jt would be a viola
tion of the inte-national agreements.
The Russians might even stage
another walkout in the Council.
They further stated that any action
of the U. N. would be ignored by
Russia who intends to stand fast in
her position.
Further disagreement occurred
when Russia declared that the whole
situation in all of Germany was in
volved and that Berlin was not an
isolated one. Western Powers be
lieve in the settlement of just the
Berlin situation. A delegate from
the West stated that we will dis
cuss the whole German situation but
not under the force of a blockade.
Meanwhile in the U. N. Assembly
a technical argument has arisen.
Russia has taken a new or a modi
fied stand on the question of inter
national atomic control. Just a
week ago Vishinsky demanded im
mediate prohibition of the atomic
bomb. Now Mr. Vishinsky has an
nounced a change in his recent de-1
mand. Russia demands that the
atomic bomb be outlawed and inter- ^
national control of atomic energy be j
established both at the same time. {
For two years Russia has advocated
that the atomic bomb would have j
to be destroyed before any control j
could be set up. The U. S. has ad-1
vacated inter national control pre- i
vious to destruction of the bomb. |
We do not have the faith to trust j
the world in the period between the .
quick disposal of the bomb and the
slow set up functioning control.
Western Powers therefore, received
the changed stand cooly since Rus
sia proposes the two acts be simul
taneous (which is anly half possible
when the two acts can be executed
with only extreme rates of speed).
The other pressing business in the
U. N. Assembly is the debate on
Palestine. The report of Count Ber-
nadotte, the U. N. Mediator who was
assassinated three weeks ago, has
been received with opposition by
Arab and Israeli officials alike. The
Arabs oppose recognition of a Jewish
state called Israel. The Jews oppose
making the 3,800 square mile desert
region of Negeb Arab territory.
Both the U. S. and Britain approve
of the Bernadette Plan in its en
Y Marriage-iClinic
Features Mrs. Ould
Mrs. E. H. Quid
The Reynolds Auditorium face
lifting that has been in progress
since early in June, is far from com
plete. In fact, Mr. C. R. Joyner,
principal of R. H. 8., estimates that
work will continue another 60 days.
The whole undertaking was quite
an ambitious project. The renova
tions include painting, both inside
and out, (incidentally it took over
30,000 pieces of lumber to build scaf
folding high enongh to reach the
ceilings), and new seat covers, rugs
and drapes.
The Y. W. C. A. of Salem College
will sponsor Mrs. E. H. Ould next
week, Monday through Thursday.
Mrs. Ould will speak in Assembly
and conduct a marriage clinic. Her
subjects dealing with marriage will
concern any and all topics suggested
by Salemites and she will answer
all questions asked her. (There will
be a box for questions in Clewell
smokehouse.) Her clinics each night
will last an hour including time for
dissusion. While at Salem she will
take her meals in the dining room
and will circulate in the smoke
houses in order to come in contact
with the girls.
Mrs. Ould is well-known on col
lege campuses, church groups, and
civic organizations. There will be
a schedule in the Residence Dean’s
office for any students to sign up
for personal conferences with her.
Her schedule is:
6:45—Informal talk in Day Stu
dent ’s Center
6:45—Talk for Freshmen only
10:00—Academy Chapel
12:10—Miss Covington’s Mar
riage Class

Enfield Circulator Finds
Interest In Wilson Man
Betsy Evans
by Bitsy Green
The new fashion of short hair
doesn’t help the inquiring reporter
match pictures and faces. In spite
of her recent shearing, I introduce
Betsy Evans to you through the
eyes of her amiable roommate, Sara
Betsy is from Endfield, N. C. but
“never stays there.” The last four
years have been devoted to St.
Mary’s, football games (she never
misses a big weekend at Carolina)
and a certain man in Wilson. While
at St. Mary’s, she was chief mar
shal, on the Hall Council and on
the May Court for two years.
In addition to football games, this
primary education major loves
shrimp, house-parties and rummy
(cut-throat style). The only dis
like I sensed was for the snoop
ing reporter who pulled her room
mate out to talk about her.
“Worm”, the nickname given her
by “Horseface” Bateman, doesn’t
write novels or win golf tourna
ments. She devotes all of her
hobby time to clothes (preferably
I have obtained information
(from a very reliable source) that
Betsy is “a wonderful roommate”
to the girl who “won’t roll up her
hair at night and fix her nails.”
(“Betsy is constantly fixing her
nails.”) But as sociable roommate
continued, “she never speaks one
word until after breakfast and
studies algebra all the time.”
In spite of “Roommate’s” state
ment, I happen to know Betsy does
not spend all of her time studying
algebra. Last Wednesday she made
a favorable impression in the fash
ion show. She also has joined the
Salemite Staff, circulation depart
