Hat-Burnins on the Athletic Field
The Class of 1955 will hand over
their senior responsibilities to the
Junior class at the traditional Hat
Burning ceremony Monday, May
16, at 9:30 p.m. on the athletic field.
On this occasion the Juniors will
throw their hats of frivolity into
the fire and will assume the re
sponsibility of being seniors.
The burning of the blue books
by the seniors will symbolize the
end of their college career. As'
each girl burns her exam book, she
realizes that the happy years of
college life are nearly over and
that soon she will be confronted
with many changes. The seniors
then extend their best wishes to
the juniors as each girl places her
senior robe on a junior.
The ceremony will end with the
song “Moonlight on the Campus,’’
after which the Class of 1955, led
by the rising seniors, will recess
to the Salem Alma Mater.
Everyone is invited to attend the
impressive ceremony of Hat Burn

In Final Class
By Martha Ann Kennedy
No, it wasn’t the Pierrettes this
time but some of Miss Reigner’s
Oral Interpretation pupils putting
forth their final efforts on the Old
Chapel stage. Under her direction
three types of dramatic selections
were presented to a small, but ap
preciative audience Thursday night.
Judy Graham was first with a
reading of Clytemnestra from the
Greek tragedy, Agamemnon.
Simply dressed in a black robe,
she gave a moving portrayal of the
wicked and defiant queen. Judy’s
voice, strong and intense, added
much to her performance.
Gull-Mari Lundberg was next
with a scene from the Shakespear
ean tragedy, Hamlet. Her natural
British accent and fine technique
are well-suited to the Shakespear
ean style, and she handles the roles
of both Ophelia and Hamlet ex
Terry Harmon and Martha Ann
Kennedy were in the last number
of the show. Juanita Efird, a
member of Miss Reigner’s Play
Directing class, directed the two
girls in Tennessee Williams’ one-
act play, “This Property is Con
Juanita should be congratulated
on the fine job she did in design
ing the set and costumes and
coaching the two young actresses
in their lines.
Terry played the part of Willie,
an orphan girl who had ambition
to be just like her dead sister,
Alva. The sister had been the
“main attraction” in a boarding
house for railroad men, but Willie
was still too young to realize the
'immorality of such an ambition.
To her, Alva was the symbol of
Popularity and Beauty.
She told all this to a disinterested
and scornful listener, Tom, (Mar
tha Ann), who happened to be
playing on the railroad embank
ment when she walked by. As the
play ended, there was a feeling of
hopelessness because the boy be
gan playing once more and the
girl walked on down the track
still cherishing her dream of be
coming like Alva.
On Wednesday night the annual
Athletic Banquet was held in the
Club Dining Room. Betty Mor
rison, recently elected president of
the association, presided and all
students who had participated in
intramural activities were invited.
Special guests were Mrs. Lou
Prongay, Deans Hixson and Heid-
breder. Miss Collett, Mr. and Mrs.
Britt, and the speaker.
