A New Club
In spring, a young girl’s fancy
(urns to . . . thoughts other than
school, and this year seems to be
no exception. Dottie Ervin’s dra
matic performance as Cupid in tlie
Senior Class Skit has inspired
countless Salemites to join an or
ganization which will probably
grow by leaps and bounds until
the end of school.
Miss Ervin points out that the
main objectives of the club are the
cultivation of boyfriends and the
noncultivation of classwork. Meet
ings in the da_vtime are held in the
swimming pool beside Clewell. All
who would like to become members
must bring the necessary equip
ment; tow^el. sunglasses, and sun
Also instrumental in starting this
mass movement were Mary Mar
garet Dzevaltauskas and Nancy
Warren. The principal job of these
two girls iti the club will be song
leading and entertainment.
As a final word, the,new presi
dent points out: “We feel that the
spirit which our club seeks to main
tain has been present on Salem’s
campus for many years. It has
been our joy to organize these
ideals into a club which we think
will have top priority during the
last few rnontlis of school.’’

New Changes Are Vital To Welfare
In a closed meeting of the Stu
dent Bod3- Tuesday morning dur
ing Assenihlv, a new and revolu-
ticuiarv body of rules was adopted
to replace the present regulations.
Since all the new rules were ad-
vantagous to the students’ welfare,'
it was not deemed necessary to
present them to the Stee Gee As
sociation for a vote, announced the
new president, lane Wrike. Cate
gories for tile new rules are: class
attendance, class work, evening en
gagements, overnights, horseback
riding, signing in and out, and the
locking of dormitory doors.
Students are required to attend
2% of the meetings of each class
in order to receive credit for the
course. An E or F grade requires
that the student attend 5% of the
meetings of the class. Attendance
at Physical Education classes is
not necessary. The student is asked
to attend this class only when she
The only exams to be given in
an.y course are the final examina
tions. A composite term paper of
not more than eight pages shall
be written by the student to cover
all cour.ses. If the student is
unable to complete this paper, she
may use one from her dormitory
files, providing she adds her own
name at the bottom of the page.
Evening engagements :
Each student has unlimited even
ing engagements as long as she has
a different outfit for each evening.
When her wardrobe runs out, shq
must take a week’s breather to
replenish it. House presidents will
keep a record of what eacli girli
wears. (Separates do not count).
Friday, Saturda\3 and Sunda\^ are
free overnights. Weekday over
nights are limited to 7 per month.
Permission from iiome is no
longer needed for girls to horse
back ride. An underclassman may
keep her favorite horse in the base
ment of Clewell. She may bring
the liorse in only from the base
ment door, never down the stairs.
She ma}' ride her horse on front
campus, but she may tiot ride the
animal to town.
Signing in and out:
Students are no longer required
to sign in or out. Nobody cares
where you are anyway.
Locking of dormitory doors:
Dormitorj- doors will remain un
locked at all times in anticipation
of a panty-raid. .. ..
Harris To Give Recital
Harriet Harris is finally giving
her castinet recital in Memorial
Hall, Monday, April 8 at 8:21 p.m.
The refcital was postponed twice
due to hangnails on Miss Harris’
“wicked” right hand.
In a recent interview with Miss
Harris, she was asked to give her
own opinion as to the most im
portant prerequisite to a r t i s t i o
castinet playing. She suggested
that any person with St. Vitus
dance should think seriously about
learning to play the castinets.
Miss Harris has the Ubangi tribei
in Africa to thank for some of her
interesting musical ideas. Several
years ago, when she vi.oited the
tribe, she was absolutely fascinated
by the rhythmical clicking of lip
plates when the Ubangis talked—
especially at a fast rate of speed.
After an intense study of these
rhythms, she composed a nocturne.
Ubangi Castaway for left hand
alone, which is included, in her
program for Monday night.
Other than the Ubangis, Miss
Harris has studied with Lord Flea
and his Calypsonians, Xavier.Cugat,
Little Richard, Fire House.. Five
Plus Two, and Clementine, Sander-

Harris will play Here We Go In
A Row, The rest of the program
IS as follows: Prelude and Fuguet
in D double fiat minor by Bach;
Hymn to Apollo; All Shook Up by-
Elvis Presley; Ubangi Castaway by
Miss Harris; and to close this
varied program she will play a
Concerto for Castinet and Harpsi
chord by Monteverdi.
Following the program a re
ception will be held on the athletic

What Is This Thing Called Babcock Dorm?
The new dorm certainlj' has pro
voked a lot of questions as to what
it will really be like. To clear up
this insignificant matter, 1 have
called a special meeting of com
mittee, tlie Big Three composed of
mv'sclf, Dale lllick Gramley
(Diggs), and Tom Perry of Harry's^
Hideaway. V\’e three' have dis
cussed ]>ro and con for iTiany long
hours in the Music Hall and have'
come to several final decisions. We
thought that several final decisions
would be better than just one.
First of all, a word of safety con
cerning tlie furniture in the new
dorm. These furnishings are to be
handled with the utmost of care.
There is a two-fold reason for
this precaution. One, they were'
made by our Davidson brothers,
and two, any scratches on the floor
planks made i)y falling furnishings'
will he l)Ut on >-our record. For
ydur o\\ ti safety in such small
rooms, there will be a limited
amount of furniture. Besides the
necessities such as stuffed animals,
bulletin boards, boyfriends’ pic
tures, etcetra, the school urges
each and every one of the per
spective residents to invest in a
bed, chair and dresser. All may
be imrcliased at a reasonable cost
from Brother Suavely at Ye Olde
Booke Shoppe. (At this writing,
Brother Suavely has just bought
out Davidson Brothers, Inc.)
Due to the short wires, electricity
will not be on the program for the
new dorm. The management re
grets this, so will the residents.
Therefore, electrical equipment
such as irons (curling, steam and
otherwise), lamps, gramophones,
victrolas, and refrigerators (as was
found before inspection in Sisters’
Dorm) is strongly discouraged. All
lighting materials will be produced
by Brother Welfare’s Tallowe and
I Wicke Shoppe. Because of the
high cost of matches, residents
must restrict their use of matches
to seven per week.
Due to the incousiderateness on
the part of the Olde Salem Wreck
ers and Restorers Committee (con
struction workers), there will be
no choice in hot or cold w ater.
For that matter there will be no
water, running or otherwise. How-
over, wooden buckets and tea
spoons (“not to be taken from the
Dining Room”, thank 3W1, Sister
Cummings), will he provided for
those who wish to sponge bathe
before the pool opens in Ma3-. Cn
the subject of water, accommoda
tions for the uncomfortable will be|
outside the dorm only. They will:
be at strategically placed points on
back campus. Those who must
make use of theje accommodations
late at night must secure late per
Parties and Other date securing
methods are encouraged at Bab
cock Dorm, if you want to call
dating once every two months “en
couraged dating”. Brother Wright,
our in-coming dean of socials, must
interview each new gentleman and
check his name against- the black
list. All young gentlemen attend-
ing a Salem folk dance social must
submit before hand to a thorough
search for liquor or any other Iiabit
There will, be a variety of enter
tainments in the new-dorm. Basket
weaving materials, sewing kits and
all other Do-It-Yourself kits will
be provided by the school at a low
additional cost. Ping pong tables
will be set up if thirty or more
girls petition one. Balls will be
furnished at a later date. On the
last Saturday of every fourth
month, Brother Johansen' will call
for the folk dancing. Music will
be furnished by Salem’s own 20-
piece Moravian orchestra featuring
Sister Deanna on the fiddle. It is
encouraged that girls and their
gentlemen callers remain at all
times with both feet on the floor.
Therefore, jitterhopping is discour
aged. Chaperones must be present.
4 he3' will not be obvious, however.
Onh^ one chaperone per couiile. We
must insist that only parlor chat
(idle chatter) he used. This out
laws off-color jokes, loud guffaw
ing and romantic whisperings
All forms of entertainment, in
cluding parties, must end abruptly
at nine bells. Sister Roberts re
minds the future residents of Bab
cock Dorm that the chaperones
don’t want to say good-night to
your gentlemen callers.
Projier dormitory language will
be enforced. Conversations in hall
ways or rooms must' consist of
educational and intellectual data.
Words such as “fudge” and “fiddle
sticks” must he substituted for
those words not allowed in print.
When girls in Babcock Dorm are
tempted even to think of a bad
word, they must remember their
school s patriotic tiieme song,
“Strong are thy svalls, oh Sa-alem,
Thy virgin trees stand tall, etc.”.
We on the committee are certain
Fiat just , the first few lines of our
inspiring song are incentive enough
to turn, us from evil thoughts.
1 tliink our school theme song
is a iiroper note on which to end
my discussion of tlie new dorm
regulations. If there are still a
few girls desiring to reside in Bab
cock Dormitory next year, they
may contact me. at Main 50573. By
the way, if no one answ-ers, don’t
get discouraged. There is no such
