i April 6, 1951
By Betty Parks
Word has been received from
the Board of Trustees that gas
pumps will soon be installed in the
rear lawn of the school boiler
room, and that the hockey field
will be opened for parking effective
April 23, 1951. It seems that the
Junior class has created the need
for these changes, due to the al
most unanimous spirit of coopera
tion on the part of members in
bringing cars back to school after
Easter. To date there are seven
cars on campus serving thirty-one
girls, which, after considerable ef
fort on the part of the author of
this article in the field of long-
division, comes to four and three-
sevenths girls per car.
Of course, bringing the cars back
to Salem for the first time neces
sitated a few unusual trips, as the
occasion demanded. Jane Watson,
Lola Dawson and Margaret
Thomas had the longest journey,
coming from Clearwater, Florida.
Margaret was dressed for the oc
casion in a crumpled blue cotton
dress streaked with orange juice.
Jane somehow slammed the car
door on the hem of her skirt and
drove through Georgia in a rain
storm before she discovered the
layers of good wholesome mud she
had collected on it.
Carolyn Harris and Winkie had
an uneventful trip from Rocky
Mount to Durham, but from there
on things were a little different.
They apparently charmed a car
load of boys who played pass-me-
if-you-can. Carolyn, filled with the
adventuresome spirit of our pion
eer forefathers, took the short-cut
through Graham, although she had
never tried it before. They got
Jean Patton and Martha Wolfe
had a pleasant trip over Fancy Gap
Mountain at ten miles per hour in
a thick fog. Jean redeemed herself
on the last thirty-eight miles of
the trip, however. She made it in
Emily Warden didn’t have an
exceptionally exciting trip from
Roanoke. She drove by herself,
because she couldn’t find anyone
else interesting enough to ride with
her. Emily not only sang the
whole way down, but composed her
songs as well. Any girls pos
sessing nerves of steel and im
munity to car-sickness are invited
to join her in afternoon drives.
