The students of Salem College
are being given an opportunity to
become acquainted with a lovely
Moravian service known as the
Love Feast.
It is a beautifully simple service
of fellowship and thanksgiving
which the Moravians have cele
brated for over two hundred years.
It symbolizes the early church s
custom of breaking bread from
house to house in happy fellowship.
During the service, each person
receives a bun and a mug of coffee
and those who break the bread to
gether are united in fellowship like
that of a family.
The Moravian students on
Salem’s campus will conduct a
Love Feast in Little Chapel this
Sunday night at 6:30 p.m. and
Wednesday night at 9:15 p.m.

This month, for the first time,
I got around to reading a copy of
the Salem College Alumnae Bul
letin. Luckily, it happened to be
a special issue on careers. As I
turned through the first few pages
I found articles by former Salem-
ites who are very successful in
their chosen fields.
The first article was written by
a ’49 graduate working in the field
of magazine editing. Next were
two articles by music majors. One
tours Europe while the other is
employed in New York City and
New Jersey.
Social work was the subject of
the next discussion. The author
works in a Child Guidance Clinic
in Chicago. Also present were
articles on journalism, advertising
and publishing, chemistry, and col
lege teaching. ^ _
Finally, near the end of the
issue, I found an article by Betsy
Liles of the Class of ”55. Her
topic was “Salem Is A Career
Girl.” In it, she brought the
alumnae up to date on the changes
which have taken place this year
at Salem. It seemed strange to
think of Betsy as an alumna.
As 1 finished reading'I thought
of how many people should read
this copy of the Bulletin. It is
evidence of the success of Salem
girls who probably couldn’t im
agine themselves as career girls
any more than we now can.
