Volume XXXIX Salem College, Winston-Salem, N. C., Friday, March 20, 1959 Sarah Tesch, Mary Lu Nuckols Win Oslo Scholarships Committee Selects Foard And Lynch As Alternates Girls Relate Their Ideas As States’ Ambassadors 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, Pasquier Trio Perform For Music Series ■On Monday night, March 23, in the Magnolia Room at Wake For est College, the Pasquier Trio will appear on the program of the Wake Forest Chamber Music Series.

Curlee is pledged to Sigma Chi social fraternity. 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.” Sarah Tesch, a rising senior fromi Winston-Salem, N. C., and Mary Lu Nuckols, rising junior from Montgomery, Alabama, have been named the recipients of the L. Cor- rin Strong Scholarships for summer study in Oslo, Norway.

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 present. 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,” Suzanne Taylor Home Ec Club Sponsors Dance On March 21 On Saturday, March 21 the Home Economics Club will sponsor the spring informal dance — Gingham Tavern as their annual project.
