In the morning we will meet here again for commit tees. Sandi and I were a few minutes late arriving for the Ad Hoc com mittee; but that is all right, since this conference is being modeled after the United Nations and the members arrive late for meetings there also. "Hungary would like to reject the resolution submitted by Japan concerning the admission of Red China and . . • We arrived just in time to pro tect the interests of the United States regarding Red China. "Point of order, point of order,” the delegate from the U. S. S. R. exclaims excitedly as he jumps to his feet. "State your point,” replied Jim Crow, chairman of this committee. "United States, caucus, please,” the delegation from Great Britain said as they moved to the back o^ the room. We caucused. These two great nations now planned their strategy in order to table the resolution. We had everyone completely puzzled about our position on the Red China question when recess was called. During recess Sandi and I dashed from the Agriculture Building to the Capitol building to compare notes with Jo Marie and Judy. Wq also wanted some coffee. As we were discussing our stra tegy with Great Britain, the Hun garian delegation came over. "You realize that you are taking the wrong stand on this resolution, don’t you? The United States is Jim Stone, chairman of the com mittee, recognized the Hungarian delegation. “The Hungarian delegation would like to withdraw its motion . . .” Would you pTease close the win- supposed to vote ‘no’ everytime j dow, one of my cohorts is suffer Red China is mentioned.” I ing from a cold and there is Hungary and settle the disturb ances,” declared the Russian dele gation. “But the Russian troops entered Budapest within six hours after the student demonstrations began,” re plied the ousted government of Hungary’s representative. Special Committee Meeting Suddenly the Japanese delegation rushed up, “What are you trying to do?” Our strategy is working we smugly thought—they don’t know what to expect from us now. Jo Marie reports that her com mittee, Political and Security, is bogged down on the Hungarian issue. Would I like to attend this com mittee with her now? Yes, I would. We took our seats in the Cham ber of the House of Representa tives. The General Atsembly draft,” the Russian delegation said. I thought we were going to be bogged down with parliamentary procedure the rest of the afternoon until Connie Curry, President of the Assembly, rescued us. We are now continuing with the discussion on Hungary. The French delegate now has the floor. “Russia should be condemned for entering Hungary during the revo lution ...” “Russia objects to this Mr. Chair man. The Russian delegation re quests permission to withdraw.” The three Russian delegates are walking out. It is now a few minutes later; the debate on Russia entering Hun gary is continuing; there is a bust ling at the door; the Russian dele gation is returning. “Russia wishes to be re-instated, Mr. Chairman.” “Russia was The United States is being sup ported by France, Belguim, Great i Britain, and the other free nations ! of the world in their efforts to invited to enter' pass this resolution. We just finished voting on the Hungarian resolution. It will b© presented before the General As sembly tomorrow morning. France is making a motion that we recess for lunch and re-convene at two o’clock. The committees are back in ses sion. We are discussing resolutions dealing with peace unification and the Suez Canal. Russia just asked the United States to express their opinion on the Suez Canal situation. It is time for another coffee break. I hope I can learn what happened in Ad Hoc concerningj the Syrian crisis. Ted told me at lunch that he was determined to get a resolution before the com mittee about Syria. Judy told me they were pktnnii^ to discuss disarmament again this afternoon in her committee. Eco nomic and Social. Judy and I have just come into the Senate Chamber. Dan Yager, the chairman,, has recognized the delegate from Rus sia. T would like to present the following disarmament proposal. It is essentially the same plan that Eisenhower suggested in 1953 . . .

Dr. Waterman Comments On Calypso And Popular Music Dr. Africa brought Dr. Richard Waterman, one of the relatively few ethnomusicologists in the coun try, into Harry’s Thursday night. (Incidentally, ethnomusicology is the study of music in primitive so cieties.) We talked about every- tjjing—from Australian aborigines to his son, Christopher, who has been playing African drums since the tender age of six months. When he was in college Ur. Waterman played bass fiddle in the All-California College Symphony. Hearing that there was a scarcity of bass players in the local dance bands, he turned to this more luc rative occupation. He still enjoys band playing though, he and a group of fellow professors from Northwestern appeared on Winston sponsored “I’ve Got a Secret last spring as a jazz-band. However, jazz is more a hobby with him now. His primary in terest is^ in the primitive music found in the world today. He has done research on West African music as the root of contemporary Puerto Rican and Cuban music, and for its relation to jazz. He has studied the music of the Australian aborigines, early Stone Age people, who are the only examples of their kind left in the world. He likes calypso very much and says that, contrary to popular be lief, the form sprang up in the city not the rural sections — that Port au Spain was its birthplace. Tt is the result of the blending of two cultures — West Indian and West African. The original caly pso is in the West African dialect “which,” he says, “is a good thing, because if it weren’t most of the songs would be banned. In English many of the numbers have a double meaning; in the original dialect there is only one . . .” Today most of the calypso we hear is in English, although in its native Trinidad it is still often sung in the West African dialect. When asked the value of ethno- musicology to the musician, the anthropologist, and the student. Dr. Waterman said, “Well, that re quires three separate answers. To the musician and the composer the research done on primitive music provides a wealth of new ideas— entirely new because they are in no way related to the familiar cliche’s of European music. Though a composer may not use any of the ideas presented to him, they, in turn, may give him something to work on. (Milhaud and others have used Indian and African music as starting points in some of their compositions.) Ethnomusi- cology is part of anthropology be cause the anthropologist is inter ested in any and all phases of the culture of primitive peoples. Its appeal to the ordinary student, neither the music nor the anthro pology student, is merely in the fact that the field is an interesting one.” He refutes a generally accepted theory that music is the universal language. —Anne Wellesley Howes Third Floor Is Home Of Our Artists Choral Group Plans Tour To New York Located in an isolated area on the third floor of Main Hall, ap proximately ninety stairs and two tired feet above the ground, is the true Bohemianism of Salem Col lege—the Art Department. This department, now cluttered with paint-streaked tables, easels, milk cartons of mixed paint, and various types of paintings, is divided into two sections. The first section is the Industrial Arts room, or course, which is under the direction of Mr. Bud Smith. It is concerned with the training of students in art methods for the elementary school. Begin ning with color theory, this course carries the students through to the activity in art suitable for the class room. The second section is the studio laboratory. The students in this course are concerned with drawing block prints and action sketches in oil paintings and water colors. This department is under the direction of Mr. Ed Shewmake. The painting in Main Hall this week, which is entitled “A Baby”, is one of Mr. Shewmake’s own works. The bold strokes and vivid colors of the painting are typical of Mr. Shewmake’s work, much of which is expressionistic in style. The subject of “A Baby” is also typical of Mr. Shewmake, who. although he has done some still (Continued on page four) On November 6, in the Oub Dining Room, the Choral Ensemble, under the direction of Mr. Paul Peterson, will sing at the North Carolina Registrars’ Dinner. On the following day the Ensemble will sing for the College Presi dents’ Luncheon. The Music Study Club of Dan ville, Virginia, has invited the Choral Ensemble to appear in a concert that they are sponsoring. The concert is to be on November 19. Perhaps the most widely known engagement of the Ensemble is their trip to New York. They will definitely appear on “Look Up and Live,” which is sponsored by th© National Council of Churches, and may be seen on the CBS television network. There is a possibility that the Ensemble may appear on another nationally televised pro gram. To help defray expenses tha members of the Choral Ensemble will be selling "Old Fashioned Golden Butter Bits.” Let’s make it a point to support our fine choral group. The Ensemble will be wearing new robes this year, and it is hoped that the robes will be ready for the trip to New York.
