Class Of '52
The traditional tree and ivy
planting took place during chapel
Tuesday morning. Members of the
student body and faculty assembled
in Memorial Hall. From there
they marched in a body to back
campus and the science building.
Dr, Gramley and Edna Wilker-
son, president of the senior class,
led the procession. Following were
the seniors, juniors, sophomore,
freshmen, faculty and guests.
Begun at Salem in 1891 by Miss
Emma Lehman, tree-planting has
become an annual service.. Since
then 61 trees and ivy plants have
been placed on Salem campus by
Miss Lehman, who taught at
Salem for over 50 years, encour
aged the beautification of the cam
pus. As the senior teacher, Miss
Lehman suggested that every sen
ior class plant a tree and ivy on
the Salem campus. In this way
each class would leave a living
memorial to the school.
White Dogwood Planted
The class of 1952 chose a white
dogwood tree to be planted be
tween the science building and the
Lizora Fortune Hanes House.
Since the science building was
unfinished at the time of the plant
ing last year, the class of 1951 re
quested that their growTh of ivy
be planted at the science building
by the class of 1952. This year’s
class chose this site also.
On behalf of the senior class,
Edna Wilkerson presented the
dogwood tree to Salem College.
The gift for the college was ac
cepted by Dr. Gramley, Each sen

Authoress Alice Chase, Former
Academy Teacher, Speaks Here
Miss Alice Elizabeth Chase, author of Famous Paintings, spoke about
art in chapel yesterday. No stranger to Salem campus, she taught
history at the academy from 1927 to 1930.

where she is one of few women to be a ranking professor. Her title
is Assistant Professor in the Yale School of Fine Arts. She has also
been Director of Education at the Brooklyn Museum.
During the winter Miss Chase lives with her father in New Haven,
Conn. However, in the summer
she moves to a Long Island Sound
cottage where, in faded dungarees,
she enjoys sailing and digging
clams. Her summer activity also
includes teaching at the summer

Practice Teachers Reach Near Victory After
Teaching In Both City And County Schools
By Betty Parks
Joanne Field, post-graduate stu
dent, is launching her career as a
certified teacher on Monday, Dec.
3. She returned to Salem this year
to do the practice teaching re
quisite for an A certificate, and
now has completed this work. Jo
anne will teach in Glenn School of
With one more week of actual
teaching remaining, other practice
teachers on campus are beginning
to think of a certificate as a reality
rather than a dream. By Dec. 7
the girls will have taught a mini
mum of 50 clock hours in both the
city and county systems.
The practice teaching program
having been condensed this year,
the girls are in the schools only
four weeks in each system. They
are in complete control of the
class two hours a day, however,
instead of one as last year. The
first week of each system is set
aside for observation, during which
time the student teacher may learn
the names and abilities of her
children and may assist the teacher.
During both three-week sessions
of practice teaching, the girls are
subject not only to full control of
the class, but to frequent obser
vation as well. She is carefully
graded by her critic teacher. Dr.
Welch and Mrs. Hart. At the end
of the three weeks, she must teach
one complete day, taking charge
of all phases of the day’s activities.
She must also have weekly con
ferences with her critic teacher
and supervisor, at which time good
and weak features of her work are
This year, in an effort to give
future practice teachers a preview
into their task ahead, junior Edu
cation-Psychology minors included
a visit with a practice teacher in
their regular observations.
The juniors observing Julia Tim-
berlake witnessed the most unusual
classroom activities. Her second
graders were up to their elbows in
cookie dough. Julia was relating
the creative activity of the class
with her unit study of the bakery.
Kitty Burrus’ group is studying
the desert, as Kitty was seen fran
tically rushing around the dorm
searching for a cactus plant.
In Betty Parks’ room they got a
grand mixture of a sermon on
better behavior in the future, an
Indian singing lesson and a story
about a cat.
As for the night life of a prac
tice teacher, it’s far from dull.

The second exhibition presented
at the Salem College Art Gallery
opened Tuesday, Nov. 27. This
exhibition is composed of art col
lections owned by local people.
The show will be on exhibit until
Dec. 15 in the gallery located on
the third floor of the library.
The collectors show features
sculpture, woodcuts, lithographs,
drawings and tapestry, as well as
modern and old paintings.
The oldest work in the exhibit is
a wood cut, “Head of Christ,”
which was done by an unknown
German artist about 1460. It was
loaned by Mr. and Mrs. Herman
Halpern and is unusual because its
size is about twice the average of
work done at that time.
French Tapestry Shown
Another unusual display is a tap
estry belonging to Miss Peggy Pol
lard. The tapestry was done by
Jean Lurcat, a modern French
artist, who is the leader of a move
ment to bring more prominence to
tapestries as a distinct art. This
work is one of the smallest Lur
cat has done.
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Martin have
loaned a charcoal drawing “Bather”

Palmer, belongs to Mr. and Mrs.

native of Jamaica, is a barber by
trade. He began painting on pieces
of paper bags, but tourists, recog
nizing his talent, now supply him
with canvas and paint.
Sculpture Is Abstraction
Miss Sue Moore loaned two small
sculptures by Lucy Delmarle-Blake,
a French artist. Each work, al
most a relief, is an abstract design
in different kinds of metal on
One of the two paintings loaned
by Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Hanes is
the work of the Mexican artist
Diego Rivera. Rivera, whose works
are often political in subject mat
ter, is especially known for his
murals. The painting on display
is possibly a study of the artist’s
