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.

By Judy Golden 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.
