Nominating Study Group
Proposes Improvements
For Election Of Officers
Last spring there was a great
deal of satisfaction as to the
means of electing the officers of
the various student organization
on Salem’s campus. A committee
that consists of the presidents of
the organizations and other inem-
!)crs selected by various means
was organized. The main objec
tive of the Nominating Study
Group, which is headed by Mary
Ann Hagwood, is to improve our
means of electing officers.
The committee has met and dis
cussed the objections. By secur
ing handbooks from other colleges
they have been ^ able to discuss
more freely the “pros and cons”
of our means of election. Much
was gained from the discussions
that compared our means of elec
tions to the elections in other

Thursday afternoon in assembly
Salemites watched Jim McDaniels
receive his A. B. degree. Jim gra
duated from Gardner-Webb Jr.
•College in 1951. He entered Salem
in 1951 and, left in 1952 for four
years service in the Air Force. In
1956 he resumed his studies at
Salem College with an English
major and History minor,
presently with W. T. O
B. and
plans to eventually begin teaching.
Since students are so accustomed
to the “ultra feminine” atmosphere
around Salem, Jim’s face has been
the welcome male addition to
many of our classrooriis. He, single
handed, maintained the more mas
culine attitudes and defended man
hood in more than one class dis
cussion. We might well consider
Jim due a second reward for dip-

the city schools, Miss Grace Brun

county schools, Mr. Raymond Sar-

All three of the finalists have
completed their student teaching
and had excellent records Anis

at Wiley School and Mary Curtis
did hers in the second grade at the
same school. Martha did her work
at Reynolds High School m the
field of speech and English. _
The five girls who are now doing
their teaching were not eligible for
the competition because state rules

But Salemites have emerged un
tainted by Jim’s concept of woman
and Jim has emerged harboring a
fondness for us and our “sacred

All in all, we would say having

lented and admitted quite frankly
that he had come to feel a part of

luctant in leaving. Jim, won’t you
stay with us one more semester ?
The art exhibit recently hung
in Memorial Hall is a collection
of landscapes and still lifes done
in oils by Richmond-born David
Sauer. This showing is an ex
change exhibit with the art de
partment at Davidson College, and
is the second display of Mr. Sa
uer’s work on campus. Those
who remember the first exhibit
will notice a considerable change
in his painting.
Mr. Sauer received his B. F. A.
from Richmond Professional In
stitute and his M.A. in Fine Arts
Education at Teacher’s College,
Columbia University. He began
painting at the age of nine and
exhibited at fifteen at Virginia
Museum’s Fourth Biennial Exhi
bition of American Art.
He held his first one-man show
at the Harry Salpeter Gallery in
New York, March 29 to April 17
of 1954. Mr. Sauer has just re
turned from a year’s study in Eu
rope and is now living and work
ing- on the James River.

The committee has arrived at
several suggestions that it feels
would greatly benefit qur student
organizations; however, before
these suggestions can be adopted
they must be approved by the
Student Government and then ap
proved by the Nominating Com
mittee. The committee believes
that our method of electing of
ficers is a sound one, however, the
committee feels that much can be
gained by having each the fresh
men and sophomore class to elect
two representatives to the com
mittee. The presidents of the
freshmen and sophomore classes
would also serve on the committee.
Another method suggested is to
sponsor a public opinion poll. The
students would nominate two of
ficers for each office. By this
method the general opinion of the
students could be obtained rather
than just the opinion of a few.
Every elected officer should be
elected by a simple majority rather
than by many re-votings. These re
votings create confusion and gener
ally decrease the amount of interest
in an election. The committee not
only agreed on elections by a sim
ple majority, but decided that pub
licity of the Nominating Study
Group was a necessity in promoting
a better means of electing officers
on our campus.
