‘ “Rain, rain go away, come again

I liar words being chanted by the
numerous sun worshippers only
..I short days ago but now all groans

|pithe sun has appeared spasmodically
for a week now. It’s freckle time.

I the past week-end though she walks
^ too fast or is it that her friend
walks too slow ?
Sharing honors with May Day
activities were the kittens of the
“thin” mother cat who has become
so much a part of our campus . . .

Speaking of May Day, PK and
fellow workers deserve a big
hand for the most original and

It’s that lovely time in every sen
ior’s life when comprehensives are
staring them full in the face, pay
ments of all kinds are due (I de-

’year like the plague), and things
tare being sentimentally done for
“the last time.”

Our depiction in campus diction
Of life as a Salemite
Liberal Arts is your theme
Graduation your dream.
Your relation to education
Is really something to see
While struggling to get
That Bachelor’s Degree.
Classes may take you all day.
But lessons never all night.
You’ll never break your heart
Though you are somewhat smart
We’d just like to say
Is a class divine.
You have been a delight
While you have been here
As a Salemite.
Now . . .
Hang down your heads, you Sen
Hang down your heads and cry
You’ll soon be leaving Salem
You’ll soon be saying good-bye.
Life up your heads, you Seniors,
Life up your heads and shout,
June brings that graduation . . .
You’ll soon be breaking out . . .
(Spoken) Maybe . . . perhaps . . .
And when the Seniors go marching
'Oh when the Seniors go marching
My friends, will you be in that
When the Seniors go marching in.
The clock will strike, the line will
The organ music will begin.
And four years will all be over
When you Seniors go marching in.
So grab your books, stop playing
It’s not too late now to begin
To head toward that day of free
When you-all go marching in.
The closing line was greeted with
a standing ovation from the student
body. It was the nicest surprise
since the invention of Reading Day
twice a year.
The question was once put to
this occasional contributor of
‘Around the Square’, “Does Martha
pay you for being her press agent
or is it included in the room rent?”
I promise that this will be the last
time I will insert said comment
about one said roommate named
Martha McClure. Memorial Day
is The Day that said person was
brought into this sunny world and
May 30 will be her last “red in the
face day” at Salem College.
WRA has discontinued softball
due to lack of participation and in
terest. To replace the softball pro
gram emphasis will be on individual
sports—namely tennis and golf.
Students may use the tennis courts
and athletic field any time that
classes are not meeting there.
WRA also urges all students to
read and observe rules posted in
the dormitories before using the
swimming pool. If the rules are
not followed the pool will be closed.
Remember a life guard must be on
duty when the pool is used.

Oh, to be in Elba...
now that Winston’s there!”
IT^ WHAT^ UP FRONT THAT COUNTS
The mystery is solved! Napoleon’s
famous gesture ■was just to reassure
himself that he had plenty of cigarettes.
His army may have traveled on its
stomach, but the old boy himself
wouldn’t have been caught at Waterloo
if he hadn’t been checking the Belgian
bistros for a spare carton of Winstons!
There’s a rare smoking treat that comes
from Winston’s famous Filter-Blend—
which means a careful selection of fine,
mild tobaccos specially processed for
filter smoking. Try a pack real soon,
and you’ll agree that...
Winston tastes good—
like a cigarette should!
