Charm Week was officially opened
l)v Mrs. Dale H. Gramley, who
spoke in Chapel on Tuesday.
Through the influence of her hus-
hand and the T. R. S., Mrs. Gram-
ley was persuaded to tell us random
and interesting fads about how she
happened to become a president’s
Mrs. Gramley attended a small,
church related college, much like
Salem, However, it was definitely
co-educational, and here it was that
Dr. Gramley entered the picture.
"It was definitely a pick up date,”
Mrs. Gramley stated, “and when I
saw that he was taller than I, that
was all that mattered”. Besides
liaving gobs of red hair. Dr. Gram-
ley was known as the “most ducked
student in school”. It seems that
ihe bo}d couldn’t talk to the girls
except at the Duck Pond. Oh yes,
(here were many rules! The girls
were allow’ed to go out one night
a week, and that was Saturday

noons, from 4 to S, the girls could
stroll with a gentleman!
When Mrs, Gramley graduated
from college, she taught English,
and was given the job of supervis
ing the school paper. Hence, Dr,
Gramley was invited to visit her
every week-end in Bethlehem just
in time to make up the paper.
While Dr. Gramley was teaching
at Lehigh, his wife became ac
quainted with the president’s wife
there, never suspecting that she
would soon he one herself. The
invitation to Salem was a complete
surprise, and they laughed at the
idea of leaving old friends and
bringing four boys to a girls’ col
lege. A visit to Salem changed
tlieir minds.
-Mrs, Gramley stated that a wo
man’s type of life depends on her
job or her husband’s job, her com
munity, and her children.' What
ever you put into your home is a
reflection of you as a person. A
woman must always remember that
her home belongs to her children
also, and she must not try to be a
(ierfectionist when she ha>s children.
After hearing Mrs. Gramley,
Salem girls agree that they have
found a “gracious” and a “charm
ing First Lard.”
