Volume XXIX Salem College, Winston-Salem, N. C., Friday, March 4, 1949 Number XVI 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 Reviewed For You by Euth Lenkoski Israel 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.

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 room. 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”.
