No Longer Bother New Practice Teachers

Mary Griffin Wooten was elected
chairman of the freshman class
in a meeting held on Tuesday,
October 18.
Griff, as she is popularly known,
is from Kinston, North Carolina.
There she served as Presi
dent of the Student Council. She
was a member of the National
Honor Society, the DAR Award
winner,, a representative to the
Student Council from the Freshman
Class, treasurer of the FTA, treas
urer of the Junior Class, Vice-
President of the Junior Tri-Hi-Y
and a member of the Senior Tri-
Hi-Y in her Junior and Senior
Griff was also a member of the
dramatics Club, the Junior Pep
Club, and the Glee Club. She was
on the Term Honor Roll, and also
on the staff of the school paper,
the Ki-Hi.
When I asked Griff about her
hobbies, she laughed and said that
there wasn’t much time left in
which to do things for relaxation,
but that she had taken piano_ les
sons for five years and enjoyed
playing for her own amusement.
On Sundays, Griff played for a
Sunday School Class.
At the end of her interview.
Griff asked me to include her
“appreciation to the Freshman
Class for the position” into which
they had elected her. She has re
solved that she will do her best
to “uphold Salem’s traditions and
promote the welfare of the Fresh
man Class”.

“Miss Rogers, have you ever
picked up a snake?”
That is the way it all started
with thirty third graders at Oak
Summit School. It is impossible
to stereotype these children; for
some are large, some are small
some are blonds, some brunettes,
and two are red heads.
Some have brown eyes, some
blue, and a few have hazel. Some
move and think very fast and
others move and think a little
slower. None of them are alike.
- I have found it almost impossible
to get those children off my mind
—not even at the Duke football
game last weekend—for there are
always these thoughts: what can I
do tomorrow?, will they enjoy
doing that?, will they learn some
thing from what I am going to do?,
have the children had a part in
planning our work?, and ■ what
will Dr. Welch and Miss White
think of my plans?
These plans and thoughts that I
have had have resulted in ^ some
unusual and amusing experiences.
One day I was introducing Roman
numbers to the children and as a
part of my motivation I wrote the
word Roman and asked the child
ren if any of them had ever seen
that word before.
I was expecting them to tell me
about roman rockets since they had
all gone to the Fair the night be
fore, but much to my surprise the
answerwa s quite different. A
little boy popped up and said:
“Yep, I’ve heard of it. It was the
Roman soldiers that killed Christ.”
Another day the children were
writing a paragraph about what
they had seen at the fair and I
found the word nakedness on one
child’s paper Being courious,^ I
cmia s yayci . , ..1 ,
asked the child to tell me what she nounced the ^hockey
meant. “You know. Miss Rogers,
a necklace like you wear around
your neck.”
The biggest thrill comes when 1
see the eyes of Charles, the little
boy that sits on the back seat of
the last row, light up; and I know
that he finally understands that IV
is the way you write four in Roman
In case you are interested — the
little boy compromised and brought
me a lizard in .a jar instead of a
snake. Incidentally it was a per
fect introduction to our science
study of land animals.

Now about the serious side of
practice-teaching.—Opps, let me get
these high heels and earrings off.
Ah-h, that’s better.
When I walked into Mrs. Lin-
ville’s third grade at Kernersville
School two weeks ago, thirty child
ren and a jar full of wasps filled
the room. This week there are
still thirty children in that room,
plus two butterflies, a jar full of
dead 'wasps, a fish-bowl full of
snales, a cage with two parakeets,
and two teachers.
Speaking of teachers, I advise all
prospective ones to banish their
fear of having any trouble with the
one under whom they teach. They
are the ones who can mix the paint
so easily or show you the best way
to give out glue.
The teacher under whom you will
work will be the “mother for a
day”. Trust her, is my best sug-

Dr. White Likes Salem Girls

to be proud of its professors. A
new reason this year is Dr. Will

A casual interview with our new

Instead, I spent forty-five minutes

he attended Hampton-Sydney and
then served in World War II,
After the war he went to Lehigh
where he received his masters’ de
gree in Spanish and doctorate in
He married (sorry, girls) a
charming Richmond lady.
After serving in the Korean War
he taught English at Lehigh, then
came this year to Salem.
He is happy with his wife in
their Winston-Salem residence but
misses his hurley tobacco. He
raised it in his backyard, along
with watermelons.
I comforted him with the idea
that Temple Daniel could supply
him with tobacco but no one dis
tributes watermelons that I know
One very gratifying thing I
learned was that he likes us. He
said he found the girls here dif
ferent from the boys at Lehigh.
We are more attractive, more in
terested, and neater.
He also likes everybody on the
faculty (who doesn’t?) because he
said they created a warm and
friendly atmosphere. He likes the
close family relationship between
students and faculty.
