Our Leaders

When you see me standing at the
door in the dining hall at evei'y
meal, I’m not Miss Lytch’s assist
ant, but I’m there reminding the
A. A. Council members of their
duties. There’s a lot to this organi
zation, more than many of you
think—like ordering medals, charms,
monograms, blazers plus sending
some of these back because they
weren’t engraved right! Then one
of the biggest jobs is in printing
posters to remind you of the activi
ties and preparing signs for the sign
board announcing the various games.
We meet every other iveek on
Thursday night in the living room
of Lehman Hall and here we appoint
committees for the preparation of
entertainment and make plans to
bring about more interest in sports.
Let me review with you the events
we have sponsored so far:
The picnic supper for the Fresh
men during Orientation week. This
did not take much preparation, as
the dining hall did the work in
cooking the food.
The bon-fire the first of October.
The class presidents w'ere consulted
and asked to have class meetings in
order to choose cheer leaders and
prepare yells. These yells had to
the A. A. A fire Was built and with
be mimeographed and charged to
each class together there was much
enthusiasm and fun. The faculty
cheer-leaders also lent a feeling of,
shall we say, djgnity?
The sign board outside the dining
hall which reminds you of the var
ious games. In order to have such,
I had to go to the dean who
sent me to Mr. Gast, who sent me
back to the dean, who sent me
to Mr. Lawrence, who sent me to
Mr. Gast, and finally it was built.
Then the signs had to be printed.
The hockey games. These games
were very exciting as some were tied
while others were won by one point
made in the last minute of the game.
This year we had a very large at
tendance. Benches were brought out
the side lines and here was a better
view for all of the games.
The ping pong tournament in the
three large dorms. More than sixty
girls entered and there was continu
ous reminding of these girls to
please get with their opponents and
play so we can get it over before
The Hob-Goblin Hoe-Dorvn for
Freshmen. Various committees such
as food, properties, decorating, chap
erones and invitations, had to be ap
pointed. Lists were posted for the
girls to sign up if they planned to
come. Boys from Davidson had to
be invited. Corn stalks were ob
tained out in the country and deco
rating took a night and an after
noon to carry out the theme of
Halloween. .
The Faculty ping-pong game. Miss
Ba.ynes and Mr. Campbell were vict
orious over Miss Byrd and Dr. Sin
ger with score keeper Miss Vest.
These teachers had to be contacted
and reminded a few times, but every
one enjoyed this thrilling game
which they performed.
The Santa Claus Stomp. Again
various committees were appointed
and with an afternoon of decorating,
with a morning of buying properties,
this was a big success, at least,
everyone said they had a “big one’’.
The A. A. Chapel Program.
Awards had to be gotten together,
certificates printed and signed and
the stage arranged. All parts had
to be typed and a meeting was held
to prepare the participants for their
This article. It’s 1:00 a. m. and
jl am still writing. I have to think
Ibaok to what we have done, when
we djd it and what it took to put
it over.

, ernment but they by no means are
: the most important part of the work
I done by this organization. Of great
importance are the personal con
tacts with the students through stu
dent body meetings, house meetings
and daily contacts with individuals
to discuss problems. This organi
zation is responsible for happy and
smooth-running dormitory life.
I Another important project of the
Student Government is to foster
student-faculty relations and to act
as a go-between them to bring them
nto a closer fellowship.
In addition, it is our job to see
that each student lives up to her
social and academic responsibilities.
When a student fails to meet these
requirements and regulations which
have been set up for. the best in
terest of all, the Judicial Committee
must impose penalties.
When school is out, the work be
gins all over again. The work goes
on every day in the year for it is
its purpose “to foster the individual
and community interests of Salem
students by maintaining a high stan
dard bf conduct, by creating a spirit
of unity and by developing a sense
of individual responsibility’’. The
four committees of the Student Gov
ernment, therefore, cannot work
alone. They need every member of
the association to work with them
and help them.
