It is time for t!ic student body to act. Tfiis dissraceful problem has
been recurring for many weeks,, and no one does anytliing' about it.
There comes a time when the student body must form rules for those
girls who are not capable of making their own decisions.
We are falling into the pattern of saying ‘'I really should not, but
This is a problem which f.aces every student here on campus, and the
cmly way to meet it is to face it squ.arely and to look at the conse
quences. First of all, it destroys a girl’s will power for her to do some
thing that she should not do. Secondly, though it can not be proved,
it hurts the girl's grades. Thirdly, it makes her put the trivial things
of life above the constant, unfaltering search for knowledge and for the
beauties of life. Thirdly, she is endangering her health ;ind Avill, un-
(huibtedly, become a victim of consumption. Finally, it draws her away
frcMU her roommate by separating them for a few hours each day.
However, all is not lost. There .are still some Salemites who have
enough will power to do what should be done and to say' “no”. Yet
there is still sometinng lacking in their action; too many times, these
young ladies spend the rest of the evening regreting their ne;;ative

matter. We wish to introduce a resolution which we hope* u ill be car
ried before the student body, and which we hoi>e the student body will
.approve. The resolution is as follows :
Since .girls of our age are not capable of making their own decisions,
and since the consequences are so gre.at, we resolve that a censureship
committee be formed to decide vvhther or not a student should accept
any offers she may have for a mid-week date.
We feel that this action will be for the ultimate benefit of the school
and it will extinguish the trite statement. “1 really should not go, but
Po’ soul yo’ is with ya’ untied shoe,
Ya slip showing and ya hair turn
Swat that fly off of your face—
Tuck your shirt tail back in place.
Don’t step on that long green
Calm down now, an’ eat this cake
Yo’ don’t looks well, weren’t it
Must not taste like I thought it
Do ya’ always believe all you hear
An’ do all youse told without no
Take heed of all this ridicule
An ya sho is, an ‘April Fool’.
