Mr. Bell Tells
by Ruth Lenkoski
The relationship between the
I United States and the Soviet Union
seems to be of increasing concern
to all Americans as well as to the
t people of the world in general. One
I way of looking at the situation is
' that while the U. S. has passed
along the road of history she has
I reached a fork in the road. One'
: side of the fork is the road to
peace and the other side is the
road to war. There are those who
believe that this country has al-
, ready chosen and progressed con
siderably on the way to war. It is
safe to assume that if we continue
on the path of war we will get
lost, but, there is a way to escape.
That would be to turn around and
go back to the point where the
fork is. From there we would be
wise to take the road to peace,
however rocky and difficult it may
seem, for such action at least af
fords more hope for life than being
Last Tuesday, Tartt Bell spoke to
Salem students in chapel and dis
cussed the relations between the
U. S. and Russia. Mr. Bell does
see hope in the other road and he
has pointed out three of the main
steps on this path of hope: (1)
Relief and reconstruction for all
the countries who need such help,
including the Russians “who are
also our brothers under a common
father;’’ (2) A general federal
world government under which all
nations would make peace and sur
render their power of waging war
to the world government; and (3)
Complete disarmament of all
In carrying out step number one
Mr. Bell suggested revision of the
U. N. charter, with the U. S. tak
ing the lead. Also,'he said he tho
ught that the Marshall Plan should
extend further by being put into
the hands of the U. N. for more
effect and broader aid. We should
also put all our resources in the
hands of the U. N. says Mr. Bell.

Nell Penn Lives In A Whirl;
Knovun As An Active Girl
by Mary Lib Waaver
When I asked Nell Penn Watt’s
roommate for some facts about Nel
lie, she said, “It’s pitiful”. Very
discouraged I tried again, It seems
that her roommate doesn’t know
much about her. Being Stee Gee
president lias kept her so busy
that she never gets to her room
during the day.
With the help of quite a few
girls on second floor Bitting, I
found out a few facts about neat
and petite Nell Penn. This sen
ior sociology-economics major hails
from the milltown of Danville, Vir
ginia. She likes best to eat (steak
is her favorite food), likes to stay
np late at night and talk (never
'"'■ants to go to bed), and loves a
good time (goes out every night).
Of course Nellie also has her pet
peeves. She just hates to study, to
hear practice teachers talk about
their classes and children, and to
nse lemon soap. /
NELL PENN WATT
I stayed in 206 Bitting long en
ough to find out that George is the
light of Nell Penn’s active life.
She finds time somehow (when she
is not Stee-Geeing) to be a , big ac
cent in Salem’s athletics and be
a member of the Order of the Scor
pion and the I. B- S.

western North Carolina. Dr. Hulme
graduated from Asheville High
School and received his A. B. de
gree from the University of North
Carolina. His M. A. degree was
bestowed upon him at Emory Uni
versity and his Ph. D. at the Uni

Pawn is sick or refuses to respond
to Dr. Hulme’s efforts to train
him, English students can expect a
In spite of this minor vice Salem
