World Fed eralists
Plan Activities
The week of March 6-12 has been
designated by the National Council
of United World Federalists, Incor
porated, as World Government
Week. The work of this week is
intended to highlight a thirty-day
national membership campaign,
which, according to the decision of
the Second Annual Assembly, began
February 20.
The objectives of World Govern
ment Week are: (1) to educate com
munities throughout the nation with
regard to the idea of world govern
ment in general and the purposes of
UWF in particular; (2) to enlist the
interest of community leaders and
local governmental officials in the
idea of world government; (3) thro
ugh resultant publicity and interest,
to gain fresh support and enroll
new members for UWF.
In keeping with the national drive,
the Salem chapter of Student Fed
eralists had decided to intensify its
program in March. During the next
month, particularly, and for the re
mainder of the school year it will
try to stimulate a live interest in
the problem of world peace that is
the responsibility of present college-
age people, and to answer specific
questions that students have asked
UWF members.
The problems that will be dis
cussed fall into two categories: the
idealogical and the organizational.
Under the first will come a review
of the needs for some kind of world
government and its historical evolu
tion. A study will be made of the
main points of the federal system
as it has been used in the United
States and might be applied on a
world scale. Also other measures
relating to international issues, that
are pressing for congressional action,
will probably be considered from
the Federalists point of view: E. E.
P., reciprocal tariffs. United States
of Europe, Aid to China, the North
Atlantic Defense Pact, the Univer
sal Military Training proposal, the
15 billion dollar defense program.
Bach Edition
Is Presented
With an interesting and informa
tive display the library this week
announced that it has obtained a
copy of the famous Gesellschaft
edition of the works of Johann
Sebastian Bach. This display will
remain for an indefinite time to al
low the friends of the Library to
see the collection.
The Gesellschaft edition, consid
ered to be the most complete and
accurate of all such efforts, is prin
ted in forty-seven volumes, beauti
fully bound in red. The music is a
photographic reproduction of the
original, done by the Edwards Music
Company of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
This new addition to the music
of the library is very valuable, and
was presented by two sisters, Mrs.
Mary Johnson Hart and Miss Mar
garet Johnson, in memory of their
mother, Elizabeth Hicks Johnson.
Each year the sisters present some
gift in the fields of music and litera
ture, and the prized Gesellschaft
edition is the result of the gifts of
several years.
In addition to the Gesellschaft
display, there are several interest
ing items about Bach, loaned to the
library by music lovers on the cam
pus. There is the scrapbook which
belonged to Dean H. A. Shirley, at
one time head of the department of
music. This scrapbook features pic
tures of the masters and of the sur
roundings in which they worked. Dr.
Vardell has loaned his colored pic
ture, L’Assemblee au Concert, show
ing the times of Bach, as well as
the manuscript copy of his trans
cription for piano of Bach’s chorale,
Christ Lay in Death’s Dark Prison.
There is, also, a ring-bound edition
of six overtures by Bach, published
by the New York Public Library.
This music, too, is a photostatic re-
produetion, and is known as a
World News
For You
by Euth Lenkoski
A formal armistice between Egypt
and Israel has finally been formed.
Last week at the Island of Ehodes
negotiations between these two coun
tries ended with the first official
recognition of Israel as an indepen
dent Jewish State by the Egyptians.
The disputed area, a 950 square
mile strip of land in Southern Pal
estine, was divided. Egypt received
about 135 square miles, a hundred
square miles became neutral, and
Israel got the rest under the new
peace negotiations. Roughly speak
ing, each country got the land which
she held previously.
Similar treaties with other Middle-
East countries seem both possible
and probable. It is believed that
this peace in Palestine will have
world significance. At least it has
removed one of the Western Pow
ers’ greatest fears—"the fear that
Russia might gain a foothold in the
Middle East as a result of the local
wars and unrest.”
United States
In the Sunday New York Times
of last week there appeared a good
summary of President Truman’s pro
gress during his new administration.
The following is a brief resume of
the major bills which Truman pro
posed during his campaign, along
with a report on their progress:
Labor Legislation—Repeal the
Taft-Hartley Act and revive the,
Wagner Act "with improvements.”
Progress: Senate Committee on
Labor and Public Welfare completed
open hearings on Feb. 23. Schedule
for further action uncertain.
Minimum Wages—Raise minimum
wage from forty cents to seventy-
five cents. Progress: Public hear
ings completed by House Education
and Labor Committee and no hear
ings held in Senate as yet.
Social Security—Bills to provide

My interview with Jeanne Dun-

true sense of the word. We were
both novices to the art of inter

Janie Brings Pandemonium
ToSmokeHouse withPounce
by Bitsy Green
Starkle, starkle, little twink . . .
That’s how Janie Fowlkes appears
to my somewhat foggy eyes each
morning at breakfast.
Her roommate, Euth Elizabeth
Wolfe, has a different story. Betty
has to be careful how she wakes
Janie. "That’s the only time you
can make her mad,” says Betty. It
must be the morning air that revives
her, because she assumes a horrible
face and never says a word in the
As chief cook recently in the
Practice House, Janie silently put
ice in the water for breakfast. (A
silence due to a lack of exposure
to the morning air). Since this epi
sode, Janie has haunted the smoke
house of Bitting. Her friendly
ways and love of people evidently
didn’t flourish under the restricted
population of the Practice House.
If you don’t know Janie or fail
to recognize her short hair-cut, look
for her familiar walk. You can’t
miss her if you do—there isn’t an
other one like hers. Neither can
you miss her friendly attitude nor
her vivacious laughter. Janie doesn’t
just laugh; she provokes laughter by
her own laugh.
Her active interests this year are
the Circulation Staff of the Salem-
ite and the Y Cabinet. Recently,
she has caused near pandemonium
in the smoke houses by teaching the
seniors how to play "pounce”.
