George Kemp Dr. Herbert Spaugh Reporter Makes “Big Time” There I was. And although the other ladies aird gentlemen of the press and T.

The British L a b o r i t e leader, making his seventh visit to the United States but his first formal lecture tour, stated the accepted British policy toward the new Suez situation and the old question of Communist China’s status. Arriving early Monday morning, Mr. and M rs. Morrison emerged from the train dazedly. “Where is the sign' saying Winston- Salem?” Mrs. Morrison asked, looking all around. We were just sitting there. Nobody told us to get off. Then Herbert saw every body else getting off.” The Morrisons chose to spend the day undisturbed except for a morning press conference at their hotel. And both visitors immedi ately refused to involve themselves in the current presidental cam paign. “It would be quite wrong if I was to interfere in the internal affairs of the United States,” laughed Mr. Morrison, puffing con tinually on his never-lit pipe.

Suddenly I was caught in a mad chaos which all centered around a quiet, bright-eyed man — sitting calmly in a large easy chair in the corner of the smoky room. I recognized him as Phil Silvers. I found the most inconspicious seat In the room and proceeded to view the scene with objective interest. Phil was bombarded with ques- tiins. Through it all he cocked his head and patriotically smoked first a Chesterfield and then a Salem. He graciously answered all sorts of questions ranging from his career to his love elife. About his career he said that his biggest thrill was winning the “Emmie’ (T. V. Academy Award). Speaking of his current courtship of a well known New York lady, he grinned and said that if she makes a little more money “I’ll marry her.” When he began to discuss his “Sergeant Bilko” television pro gram I permitted my mind to wan der since I had neyer seen his program. Suddenly I became acutely aware that I was being stared at. Everyone was waiting for me to ask a question! My 'first reaction was to con veniently faint but somehow 1 managed to gargle, “Ahhhhh—Mr. Silvers—.” What would a college girl’s typical question be ? After all I was representing the Salemite. Flash I “I represent a girls’ school —and I wonder if you would com ment on the opportunities for women in television,” I finally blurted out. He didn’t laugh. He began to answer my question. “The real power in the television industry is women.” He cited his script girl who really ran the “Sergeant Bilko” program as an example. “Of course, you must not underestimate the value of gaining experience in (Continued on Pjgb Three) Casting for the major female roles in the Pierrette fall produc tion was completed Wednesday and announced by Miss Elizabeth Rieg- ner, director, and Barbara Durham, Pierrette president.

But I hadn’t even finished asking her one question when she got a phone call from Wake Forest. That’s Puddin’ — telephone calls, cheerleader for Myers Park High School, ninth grade football queen, member of swimming team, main interest -— Henry, and the only freshman to pass out uptown from a week’s diet of nothing but Cokes and Lance crackers (her father works for Lance). Puddin’ is going to start a petition to put Lance products in all of Salem’s vending machines. Puddin’, who has just cut her hair in a duck’s tail, explains her nickname like this: “Daddy wanted all boys but got instead four daugh ters, whom he promptly tagged “Buck”, “Pete”, “Pokey,” anl “Bippy” I was “Pete”, but it just didn’t fit because I was such a sissy. One day our Negro mammy, “Fat Nelly”, said, ‘She ain’t nothing but a little puddin’.” It’s been Puddin’ ever since.” Puddin’ is majoring in Home Economics, finds Salem “not too hard,” and fears nothing except Rat Week and Linda’s threats to tell Mr. Phil — Mr. Phil is her father. Puddin’, as the Charlotte mayor’s daughter, is used to a lot of atten tion and she feels perfectly at home at Salem with faculty advisors, freshman seminars, talks with Dean Heidbreder, big sisters, and senior advisors. Puddin’ feels at home at Salem and Salem is glad to have her among us.
