In Pierrette Production "Goodbye, My Fancy”
Tn keeping with a 60 year tradi
tion, the Senior Class presented to
Salem last Tuesday a red crab-
apple tree which was planted on
the site of the first class tree.
Cammy Lovelace, Senior Class
president, made the presentation
during chapel period, and Dr.
Gramley accepted the gift.
Dr. Gramley, the present class
officers and the past presidents of
the class each put a shovelful of
dirt around the tree. Following
this ceremony, every senior threw
pennies into the hole.
The Iree planting tradition origi
nated when the Class of 1891 placed
a tree in the space between the
president’s house and the new
science building. This tree later
died, but in 1946 its location was
marked by a bronze plaque given
by Mattie Woodell Jones, ’91.
The traditional ivy will be planted
on the science building when the
landscaping is completed.

We sat down in the deserted
auditorium where freshmen elec
tions had been held, and Jane Alex
ander, new class president, told me
a little bit about herself.
She has lived in Statesville, North
Carolina since she was four. In
high school she edited the annual,
was vice-president of the Beta
Club and a member of Student
The first thing Jane noticed
about Salem was that she felt right
at home. She thinks the small
campus, traditions and friendly
people contribute to the impres
sion. “That’s what a school really
needs.” I imagine she helped “that
friendly atmosphere” along, too.
Rumor has it among the freshman
class that she is never too busy
to struggle through an algebra
problem explanation or to listen to

Dr. Raymond Haupert, President
of Moravian College in Bethlehem,

Rediscovery of the Middle East”
Thursday in Assembly.
Besides the human interest which
lies behind discoveries in the field
of archaeology there have been also
more important applications of cer
tain discoveries which prove many
statements of the Bible.
In one instance an old woman
stumbled on the Cuniform Tablets
which were written by the rulers
of Palistine to the Pharoah of
Egypt asking for help. The wo
man sold the tables and rights to
the land for fifty cents. This dis
covery pushed back the existence
of Jerusalem about 400 years.
The discoveries made by arch
aeologists may be compared to the
parables of the pearl and the hid
den treasure in the Bible concern
ing the search for the Kingdom of
Many years of painstaking ef
fort are necessary before any suc
cessful discoveries are made. Men
moved approximately 200,000 tons
of rock before they found the tomb
of a Pharoah of Egypt.
A declaration of Independence
by the King of Moab was found by
a group of Arabs. They thought
that the tablet would be worth
more if they broke it into pieces.
