A A Sponsors Valentine Dance
Melville Is
Winner
The time has come for the
Salemite to reveal to the cam
pus its local pen and ink genius.
“Toll of the Open Road” by
George Melville and “Frogs I
Have Met” by Jane Parker have
been awarded five dollars each as’
the winning entries in the creative,
writing contest. The awards were
given by the Salemite, and the
selections were made by a judging
committee comprised of Dr. Jor
dan, Mrs. Pyron, and Margaret
Raynal.
“Toll of the Open Road”, prize
short story, was praised for good
description, sustained impression
of reality and a slight psychologi
cal analysis. The story concerns
a young boy’s first experience with
both the pleasure and danger of a
tramp’s life. George Melville, the
author, is a sophomore coed se
riously interested in writing. When
Edward Weeks asked, “So you
want to be a writer ?”, George
drawled a reply to the effect that
maybe he didn’t write well, but he
hadn’t found anything he could do
better. We hope the Salemite is the
first of a long line of his “publish
ers”.
“Frogs I Have Met”, an introduc
tion to various characters among
the “geni Ranae”, was the best
essay and the best freshman contri
bution. It won this distinction by
its originality, clear presentation
and humerous treatment. Jane Par
ker is a freshman English major
from Goldsboro. At this writing
it is unknown what Jane’s literary
aspirations are; however, we shall

From TheTimes To You To Present
by Ruth Lenkoski
Austria
Since 1947 the Big Four Foreign
Ministers Council has tried to negot
iate a treaty of peace for Austria.
Last week again a conference was
held, but so far little progress has
been made. The stumbling block is
between the United States and Rus
sia. Russia, is making certain ad-
vantegeous demands, which the Uni
ted States opposes.
Germany
New ersatz meat and milk has
been developed by German and Al
lied scientists. These two food sub
stitutes taste and have the same
food value as milk and meat. Such
a development is believed to be
great not only for Germany, but for
all the hungry people in all coun
tries. The substitutes are cheap and
are therefore meeting with opposi
tion among the German politicians.
So far the experiments show that
the food will be successful but fur
ther tests are necessary. If com
pletely successful, this new food will
probably raise the nutritional stan
dards throughout Europe.
Further imports of meat from this
country will not be necessary to
manufacture the meat. It is made
of equal amounts of sausage and
proteins, extracted from soya beans
and fish solvents. The ersatz milk
is a dry product made of vegetable
proteins and is as healthful as whole
milk. The new products will pro
bably go on the German market
soon.
Hungary
Since the conviction of Joseph
Cardinal Mindszenty by the Hun
garian Communists to life imprison
ment has brought two strong re
actions—a Papal excommunication
and a ‘‘whirlwind of bitterness”
between Washington and Budapest.
On February 12, the Pope issued
a declaration ‘ ‘ excommunicating and
declaring infamous all persons who
raised sacriligious hands upon Min
dszenty, Hungarian Primate, and
who led him before a civil tribunal
and by iniquitous sentence preven
ted him from exercising his eccles
iastical arehiepiscopal jurisdiction.”
The Pope’s condemnation was ex
tended to all ‘‘those who committed
or who may in the future commit
the said crimes.”
Also on February 12, the Hungar
ian Government demanded the re
call of Selden Chapin, the United
States Minister in Budapest on the
grounds that he had interfered and
been involved with the Cardinal’s
alleged activities against the state.
The United States State Depart
ment did not openly agree to follow
the demand, but said that they
would recall Chapin for consulta-
tation. In retalitation, the United
States Government is expected to
decide whether or not it will expel
Hungarian Minister Andrew Sik,

Pierrettes Present Plays
Reigner Announces Casts
From out of a cloud of smoke
and roars of laughter in Lehman
Hall last Wednesday night have
emerged the casts of three plays
to be held here this spring.
The cast for Apartments to Let
includes: Polly Hartle as Vera;
Frances Horne as Laurel; Rosaland
Fogle as Mrs. Green; and Alvin
Thomas as Mr. Green. Apartments
to Let is a comedy by Elliot Nugent
and Howard Lindsay. In the play,
two girls are trying to get rid of
an apartment at a good price. Mr.
and Mrs. Green are likely custo
mers. Mr. Green is the typical
“henpecked” husband whose wife
has certain social aspirations about
living in the “right” scetion and
having the right friends. This one-
act play will be taken to Chapel
Hill this spring to enter the con
test there.
At Liberty, a tragedy by Ten
nessee Williams, is a play about
the conflict between a mother and
her daughter, who wants to get
away from home and live a life of
her own. Both the mother and the
daughter reveal their own private
tragedy. The mother will be played’
by Winkie Harris and Betty Belle
Sheppe will play Bessie, the daugh
ter’s part.
The freshman play that is to be
presented this spring is Six Wbo
Pass While The Lintels Boil, by
Stewart Walker. This is the story
of a little boy’s fantasy. He
alone in the kitchen cooking lintels.
The other characters in the play
are the people who come to see
him and entertain him. The cast
for this play has not been an
nounced but .will appear on the
bulletinboard of Main Hall before
12 ;00 o’clock noon on Saturday,
February 19.
