Former Editor Jane Watson
Misses Inky Hands^ Catacombs
By Anne Lowe and Jean Calhoun ing inky hands, deadline problems.
“You’ll have to ask the Chief,”
Mr. Cushion of the Sun Printing
Office would say. The Chief was
Jane Watson, the girl that always
had the right answer for Salemite
questions. When a big three foot
hole would appear on the front
page, Jane would pop up, hands,
face and arms smeared with print
er’s ink and offer an old comp,
paper she had been saving for a
“Sure we had our trials and tribu
lations, and lots of ’em,” she said.
Then she praised her staff. It
didn’t sound like a “I could never
have done it without the help of
so many such wonderful people,”
speech. It sounded like Jane tell
ing how her staff was “one big
happy family” having fun getting
out a Salemite each week.
“I miss out on all the news
now,” she said. It seems that she
could pick up all the concrete news
and gossip as reporters gathered in
the catacombs to collect, edit and
proof read the Salemite on Tues
day and Wednesday nights. “Now
I don’t even know what is going to
be in chapel until I get there!”
She sounded as if she missed hav-
and late Salemite sessions.
Jane has had her mind on “news-
papering” since the last of her
sophomore year, when she joined
fJD r c e s with the Salemite staff.
Since then she has worked on the
Clearwater Sun in Clearwater,
Florida and has been copy editor
Proof of the fact that Jane did
not spend all of her time correct
ing copy and writing articles is
the record she has made in other
fields. She has been decending the
honor hill at the May Dell with
the May Court for three years.
She has been on the Sights and
Insights staff and on the A. A. for
two years. Since her junior year
she has been a mysterious little
Scorpion. Last year, as chief mar
shall, she counted noses every
Tuesday and Thursday in chapel.
Next year Jane plans to work
here in Winston-Salem with West
ern Electric as a technical assist
ant. “I don’t know exactly what
I’ll be doing,” she said, “Probably
writing, drawing and layout. It’ll
be nice to be able to visit Salem
without having to study for pops,
j tests, and especially comprehen-
