Sarah Tesch, Mary Lu Nuckols Win Oslo Scholarships
Committee Selects Foard
And Lynch As Alternates
Girls Relate
Their Ideas
As States’
After the initial excitement had
somewhat abated, Sarah Tesch and
Mary Lu Nuckols tried to settle
down to an oft-interrupted lunch.
But students kept persisting with
their congratulations and approval
of the committee’s choices. Per
haps the three most excited people,
besides Sarah and Mary Lu, were
the former winners still on campus.
Nan Williams and Frankie Cuning-
ham, who went last summer, and
Ruth Bennett, who studied in Oslo
in the summer of 1957.
‘The girls were chosen on the
b^sis of their personality, maturity,
adaptability, and ability to profit
from the experience of studying
abroad. The evaluation of these
aspects was furnished by references
from the faculty and students, and
by the girls themselves, who wrote
essays under the title “How Shall
I Best Represent My Country and
.My College Abroad?” Following
are excerpts from the essays, which,

Mary Lu Nuckols
though not the deciding factor in
the committee’s choice, indicate
both girls’ maturity of outlook.
Sarah Tesch: “I shall represent
them, of course, as myself—but my
self at my best as an American
citizen, as a • product of a free,
public education system and of “the
Salem Spirit”, and as a trainee to
ward future teaching . . . Neither
those 1 meet, nor I, will be “for
eigners”; I shall seek an open
minded appreciation of their cus
toms and manners, as 1 would wish
them to grasp ours. I shall look
for the rule rather than the excep
tion—unless something is excep
tionally good . . . Certainly 1 shall
continue to adhere to Salem’s honor
code and shall be especially eager
to discuss both it and the system
of student government built upon
it with students abroad ... If I
ever have to choose between a
stirring “bull-session” and comple
tion of an assignment, I believe I
shall be following my college’s
“spirit” when I choose the former.”
Mary Lu Nuckols; “Since I would
be in a foreign country and since
the individuals whom I would meet
would be judging both my country
and my college by my actions and
words, I would try to stress several
qualities which I consider especially
important. The first of these quali
ties would be sincerity and truth.
'To me this means admitting when
I make a mistake ... It also means
Sarah Tesch
admitting that my country and
school have faults which I would
like to see corrected ... A second
quality would be a good sense of
humor ... an open mind . . .
friendliness . . . and common sense
and discretion.”

Faculty Pass
Revision Of
Social Rule
The Student Council announced
that the faculty has passed a re
vision of one of the social regula
tions. As the rule is now stated
in the handbook, students are not
allowed to visit in the homes of
men friends in Winston-Salem at
all, without the permission of the
Dean of Student’s office. Under
this revision, a student can visit in
the home of a male friend, if chap
erones are present, without having
this visit approved. The new rule
will be based on the Honor System,
and the students are on their honor
to visit only when chaperones are
This rule is one of several which
the Stee Gee has been trying to
clarify. The revision of this regu
lation does not effect the rules that
require parties in town to be ap
proved. Stee Gee is still working
on the revision of the rules which
apply to parties, and a decision
will be made soon. They will ap
preciate any constructive sugges
tions which you might have on re
vising these rules.
New Editor Aims For More
Encouragement Of Interest
By Nancy Jane Carroll
Changes will be made rapidly on
campus as soon as newly elected
officers take over their duties. New
Salemite editor, Susan Foard, says
that she would like to see one
change come about that isn t in the
handbook. When asked about op
portunities at Salem compared to
those of a larger school, she said
that “we have as many opportuni
ties as we have time to take ad
vantage of.” Then, after a mom
ent of thought, she began witli,
“Of course, I wouldn’t mind seeing
Salem go co-ed . .
Sincerely, though, Susan is not
in favor of attempting the impos
sible. The function of next year’s
Salemite will not be to convince the
faculty and administration that co
education is a good idea Susan
wants to make the Salemite a
medium of student expression and
invites contributions to the edi
torial page.
She says, “I am highly disturbed
by the tack of student interest ^in
issues presented to them. If we’re
not willing to discuss the issues, to
bring all opposing views into the
open, and to have democratic vote.
then we might just as well do
away with student government
meetings and set up a capable com
mittee to run the campus. I think
we should realize that student gov
ernment ought to be an expression
of the student body’s will. I
Mgerly await next year to see if
Susan Foard
we support the new system and
correct it if it seems to develop
in the wrong direction,”
