Constitutional Changes
Proposed By Stee Gee
The major business of the Stu
dent Council on Monday, February
10 was to vote on the recommen
dation of changes in the Student
Government constitution. The pro
posed changes had to do with our
system of nominating candidates
for principle offices on campus and
were to be presented to the stu
dent body at the meeting on Feb-
niarv 13.
Mary Curtis Wrike, Student
Council president, read a report
from the nominating study com
mittee. The report consisted of
four recommendations which were
discussed and voted on separately.
The recommendations as passed
1. That the Freshman, Sophomore,
and Junior classes elect two
representatives each to the
nominating committee, and that
these representatives serve with
the president of each class on
the committee.
2. That, before elections, a campus
poll be taken with a student
writing in two names for each
f)rincipie office; that a student
be allowed to write in a person’s
name more than once if she feels
the person is Cfualified for more
than one office; and that these
write-ins serve as suggestions
to the nominating committee
along with suggestions from
committee members themselves
and from Student Council mem
3. That each principle officer be
elected by a simple majority
4. That a committee be established
prior to the time for nominating
to publicize the function of the
nominating committee.
Students May
Choose Friday
Or Sunday Free
The Student Council also voted
to recommend to the student body
ttha the secretary and treasurer
of Student Government be added
to the list of principle officers in
the handbook. Council members
felt a majority vote should be re
quired for election to these offices
in accordance with the 'second re-
conmrendation above.
Another important item of busi
ness was an announcement from
Mary Curtis that Mrs. Heidbreder
had granted the recfuest that each
student be allo'W'ed either Friday
or Sunday night free in addition to
Saturday night. Mary Curtis stated
tliat each student will be required
to specify wdien she is using her
free night by putting a small “f”
beside her sign-out on the night
that she takes it.

From the Dean of Students’ of
fice comes a report of a vocational
survey taken of the 1957 Salem
graduates. This survey is con
ducted on a national basis and is
a five year project of the National
Vocational Guidance Association in
cooperation with the Women’s Bu
reau of the U. S. Department of
Salem' has contributed informa
tion for the past two years, and
will do so again this year. The
results of the questionnairs are
sent to the 'Washington office, with
no reference made to the girls’
names. The information which
these questionnaires disclose is
used in securing figures for plot
ting trends, graphs, and the like.
Although Mrs. Heidbreder com
ments that the survey for last
May’s graduates reveals “nothing
startling,” it will be interesting to
note the tabulated results. Out of
the. 59 questionnaires sent, 48 were
returned. Of the 48, all except
one were employed or married, or
both !
The actual figures are:
Employed—36 (17 married) Sal
ary range $176-$450 per month
Employed part time—3
Enrolled for study or training—4
(2 professional study)
Unemployed—5 (4 married)

News Brief
editor of the campus paper, the
Princetonian College Daily. Upon
graduation in 1928, Mr. Crowther
won the New York Times Inter
collegiate Current Events contest
for “Knowledge of the News.” The
prize money won in this contest
was used for an extended trip
til rough Europe.
While in Europe, Crowther got
a taste of early Italian totalitarian
rule when he was arrested for'
carrying a “weapon.” This “wea
pon” was actually a steel-pointed
Alpine stock !
In the fall of 1928, Mr. Crow
ther went to work for the New
York Times as a general reporter;
the next four years were spent
learning the “ins’! and “outs” of
metropolitian life, while reporting
police stories, forums, and human-
interest episodes. His journalistic
responsibilities brought him in con
tact with every sort of incident—
from the gory murder of “Mad
Dog” Vincent Coll, to the stirring
funeral of the first “Angel Gabriel”
in “The Green Pastures.”
In 1932, Mr. Crowther joined the
Drama Department of the Times
as an assistant to Brooks Atkin
son, Drama Critic, and as a feature
writer on drama events. He re
mained in this position until 1937,
covering the legitimate theater at
the times when the socially signi
ficant play came into its own. It
was during this time that Mr.
Crowther, in collaboration with
William DuBois, wrote a play en
titled, “East of the Sun.”
In 1937, Mr. Crowther became
assistant film critic and editor in
the Motion Picture Department of
the Times, and in 1940, he became
Bosley Crowther
chief film critic, a position which
he now holds. Mr. Crowther
strongly advocates the making of
genuine films, those which honestly
depict the true aspects of life. He
has constantly impressed upon
movie producers the responsibility
of the motion picture industry to
the public—that of unexaggerated
realism in movie production.

Eilan Tells About Israeli
Girls And Arab Refuges

A special Ash Wednesday Com
munion Service will be held this
Wednesday, Feb. 19 at 7:45 a.m.
in the new chapel of the Home
Moravian Church. Our college
chaplain. Rev. Johansen will serve.
All faculty and students are in
vited to this pre-Lenten program
which has been held traditionally
at Salem for the past five or six
years. This service is sponsored
by the campus “Y”.
Dr. Gramley came in just under
the bell with Tuesday’s chapel
speaker in tow. The speaker, Arieh
Eilan, looked not at all harassed
by his rather tense schedule—
Wake Forest classes in the morn
ing, Rotary Club luncheon at 12:30,
and Salem chapel at 1 :45. He was
still calm, and neatly pressed; his
quiet English accent was Tut a
thin veil over the strength and
vitality of his personality.
After chapel Mr. Eilan told us
something about the life of a col
lege-age girl in Israel. She has
the opportunity to attend three
major undergraduate universities:
Hebrew University and Medical
School in Jerusalem, the Univer
sity of Tel Aviv, and the Technical
Institute at Haifa. Those attend
ing the University in Jerusalem
had a difficult time after the war
as the temporary buildings that
were put up were spread all over
the city. Now most of the classes
have been moved to a new campus.
At Rehoboth is situated the post
graduate Science Institute; quite
a few women students there. Also,
Israel is noted for its large num
ber of women doctors. Mr. Eilan’s
comment on the final exams in Is
raeli colleges was brief: “They are
too hard to be any good.” Not
more than 30-40% pass Hebrew
University finals; not more than
20% pass at Haifa.
Regarding the attire of our con
temporaries in Israel, he said they
wear blouses and skirts in the
summer, they never wear hats nor
bobby-sox. His final comment was
made while looking across the
campus at hurrying Salemites:
“Like you girls, our young women
are very mobile!”
Mr. Eilan was born in St.
Petersburg, Russia, in 1916, but
moved to England, where he was
brought up, when he was three.
He studied law there, then became
a newspaperman and a diplomatic
correspondent, a college professor,
a soldier, and adiplomat. He came
to the United States in 1956 and
has been serving as First Secretar.v
of the Permanent Egyptian army,
a soldier, and a diplomat. He came
of the Permanent Mission of Israel
to the U. N. since then.
Mr. Eilan opened his talk with
a quotation from Chapter IV of
the Book of Nehemiah: then de
scribed the condition of his coun
try thus: “In one hand a gun, in
the other a spade: this is present-
day Israel.”
In describing the Warsaw purge
of the Jews in 1943 he summed up
the Jewish spirit by relating that—
“they felt it to be more honorable
to die fighting than be slaughtered
in front of a firing squad. This
ideal inspired the Jews of Pales
tine in 1948: How much better to
fight where there was really a
chance when those before them
fought with no chance . . .
Mr. Eilan also discussed the
Israel army’s aggression in Sinai,
1956—“last year’s big crisis”. They
had four main aims in this action,
—which was prompted by the reali
zation that the Soviet Republic
was moving into the Middle East
arming the Arabs with Russian
planes and anti-aircraft. Only two
countries could supply this type of
heavy armor—the U. S. and Rus
sia; the Arabs were receiving them
from both—Israel from neither.
The goals of the army were I)
to try to destroy the striking force
of a Russian-trained Egyptian
army; 2) to get their commercial
ships through the blocked Suez
Canal; 3) to gain freedom of ship
ping through the Gulf of Acaba;
and 4) to stop Ihe marauding of
Arab raiders.
The results were not only bene-
