Well, Monday after lunch, the
presidents of most of the organi
zations on campus met in the
Friendship Rooms of Strong, at the
request of Dr. Gramley, to discuss
plans for a proposed Student Union
in the present shop.
Dr. Gramley showed the presi

this plan would be office space for
the Stee Gee, the I. R- S. and

The Sweetheart of Salem
By Mary Mac Rogers
“Always smile at your husband across the breakfast table” is the
latest advice frorn^ the 1956 Sweetheart of Salem. He is most often seen
sporting a bow tie and a big white apron, with his head bent over a
grill piling chili on hot dogs or putting lettuce and tomato on a ham
burger—In case you haven’t guessed—it’s . . . Tom!
Tom Perry, entered by Sisters’ Dorm, was chosen by Salem as their
1956 Sweetheart this week. Tom, a familiar figure on the campus,
operates Perry’s Grill. He has two small children and will sometimes
claim 325 more. His favorite records are Little Boy Blue, A Black
Leather Jacket, and Motorcycle Boot*.
Mr. Donald Britt, assistant to the President of Salem, was the runner-
up. He was entered by Bitting Dorm.
The fourth annual Salem Sweetheart contest was sponsored by the
Senior class. The past winners were: Dr. Gramley, Mr. Medlin and
General Carlos Romulo.
