Probably the most familiar num

is the peaceful, quiet and not the
usual exhuberant Liszt.
This is the last in a series of
faculty recitals. Sophomore, jun

given the remainder of the year.
Salem College
Makes AP
The following Associated Press
release appeared in the Norfolk
(Va.) Pilot shortly after General
Romulo’s visit to Salem.
“The girls of Salem College have
picked a short-haired, high-ranking
world diplomat qs their 1955.
“Sweetheart.” He’s Gen. Carlos P.
Romulo, chairman of the Philip
pines delegation to the United Na
tions, and former UN president,
who made a speaking appearance
at Salem last Monday, just as the
annual sweetheart roll neared its
“Fqur students placed his name
in nomination on Tuesday mSrning,
and General. Romulo swept to an
amazing victory. He bowled aside
such worthy opponents as fathers,
favorite boy friends, and brothers.
“When the votes—at a penny a
piece—had been counted, he had
2,300 of them.”
Giving me her warm smile and
slow Southern drawl, Jane com
mented, “I just love Salem already
Living in South makes me feel
right at home ’cause it’s like the
dorms I’m used to. Of course,
I’m baffled over having to remem
ber so many names and so many
people. Yes, I feel almost swamp
ed by all the work right now, but
I find I’m already enjoying it so
I’m sure this attractive, efficient
young lady is good publicity for
Salem herself. Jane received her
Bacheldr of Arts degree from
Sweet Briar in government. This
was an excellent preparation for
winning her A. B. degree in jour
nalism at Carolina the next year.
Her experience as a reporter has
been with the Norfolk-Virginian
Pilot at Suffolk for two summers.
Jane exclaimed, “It was good ex
perience in working on a daily
paper but the beat was so terrific.
It took me a long time to catch on
to the fact that to endure it, you
had to move in slow motion.”
Her next position was with her
hometown paper for which she
wrote news and feature articles.
For three weeks Jane will be
living in South Hall before she
moves into her apartment over the
Community Store across the Square
from Salem College. She still feels
so much like a student that the
transition to becoming a member
of the “other party” is yet hard
to make. Jane _ said, “Sitting at
the faculty table,, seems particularly
odd to me. It seems I should be
with the students instead. It’s
like being in the right church but
the wrong pew. And if any of the
girls call me “Miss Carter”, I
don’t know what I’ll do . . . prob
ably what I unthinkingly said when
I was introduced once, “Qh, my
name is Carter, too!”

Ann Miles, scoring three points
in a “sudden death” overtime,
grabbed the sophomore basketball
title, 51-48, from the clutches of
a determined team of seniors on
Wednesday night.
The challenging team began to
threaten in the third quarter and,
with Louise Fike and Jean Currin
hitting consistently, cut the sopho
mores’ ten-point lead to nothing
by the final whistle.
Each team scored one basket in
the first overtime; the sophomores,
after eight futile attempts, scored
the clinching two-pointer after two
minutes of the second overtime
period had elapsed.
In the second game of the even
ing, the freshmen defeated the jun
iors, 45-32, and captured third place
in the round-robin tourney.
According to statistics compiled
by Cookie Kolmer, the sophomores,
winning all three possible games,
led the team scoring with 154
points, an average of 51 points per
game. Sophomore forward Ann
Miles led the individual scoring
with a total of 64 points in three
games. She is followed closely by
Nancy Russell, junior manager,
with 61; Jean Currin with 58; and
Jo Smitherman with 53.
Other high individual scorers
were Tinkie Millican, 37; Mary
Hadley Fike, 33; and Betty Web
ster, 42.
Nancy Russell, mainstay of the
junior team, holds the record for
the greatest number of points in
one game; Duffy collected 29
against the seniors. Jo Smither
man and Jean Currin tied for
second place in this area. Jo scored
26 against the juniors; Jean, 26
against the same team.
