C., Friday, April 28, 1961 Number 21 Faculty Committee Amends Current Aims And Purposes Of Salem College Dissatisfaction over our school’s current aim and purpose as stated in the catalogue was expressed by the evaluation committee for the Southern Association of College and Secondary Schools when it visited Salem’s campus last year. The present aim and purpose states “Salem College as a church re lated institution is dedicated to guiding individuals in their search for ultimate Christian values by the pursuit of truth wherever and by whatever methods it may be found. Thus the college follows the liberal arts tradition in giving equal status to the sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities . . . Salem implements its program Bernasek Gives Senior Recital On Monday, May 1st, at 8:30 p.m,, in Old Chapel, Carol Bernasek will give her graduating organ re cital. Her program will include “Concerto in G major” by Bach- Vivaldi, “Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor” by Bach, “Ah, Dearest Jesus” by Brahms, and “The Na tivity of Christ” by Messiaen. Mrs. Bernasek is a day student majoring in organ music. She at tended Oberlin College, Oberlin, Ohio, where she studied music under Arthur Poister and Claire Coci. Entering Salem in 1958, Carol studied under John Mueller, now on a year’s leave of absence in Germany on a Fulbright Scholar ship. Her present teacher is Mar garet Sandresky. Carol’s husband, Dr. Edward Bernasek, is a research chemist at Reynolds Tobacco Co. They have two children, a girl 13 and a son 8. Mrs. Bernasek is choir director at St. John’s Lutheran Church. After graduation, she will be choir director and organist at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Everyone is invited to attend a reception in the Day Student Cen ter immediately after the recital. Group Studies New Handbook The Handbook Committee, headed by Betty Cox, has com pleted revision of the Handbook for 1960-61. The revised edition will be sent out this summer to all new students. The committee checked over the current handbook and made various corrections and clarifications throughout the book. One major change was the addi tion of a foreword, stating the aims of the Handbook. A section on the Archway, Salem’s literary magazine, was added to the section on student organizations. Under the social regulations, any rule which has been changed or insti gated by the Legislative Board will appear as revised in the 1961-62 Handbook edition. Betty Cox, as vice-president of Student Government, is editor of the Handbook, and Julia Carr, as president of the Day Students, ser ves as business manager. Dr. Gramley, Dr. H i x o n, and Dean Heidbreder are the faculty repre sentatives on the committee. Other members are Sallie Paxton, Nancy Peter, Churchill Jenkins, Sally Wood, Dean Major, Judy Summer- ell, Lynn Ligon, and Anna Tran- sou. Clewell, Babcock Elect New Leaders; Plans Discussed Anne Simons and Eleanor Work man are the new presidents of Cle well and Babcock Dormitories, re spectively. Anne has been active in extra curricular activities all her lift. She represented her home town, Wil son, in the Miss North Carolina Contest, and was elected Miss Con geniality in the local pageant. Dur ing her senior year in high school she was president of the student body and was chosen Best-All- Around of her senior class. She also was a cheerleader for four years, and was homecoming sponsor. At Salem, Anne has been secre tary-treasurer of her dorm this year and is now serving as proctor “so I can learn to give call-downs.” She was co-chairman of the Par ents’ Day Tea and is planning to dance in the May Day program. Anne is a member of WRA also. A fine pianist, Anne won the Paderewski award for music. She doesn’t like to practice, but loves to just “sit and play.” She is Porter’s Works Displayed Here Raiford Porter’s painting, which is now on display in the stairwell of first floor Main Hall, has brought more response than any other painting display this year. Reaction ranged from the very favorable to the comment that the college and the community would be better off without it. Since the title is not given with the painting, there have been many suggestions as to an appropriate name. One faculty member has suggested the title “God Is Love”. Raiford Porter, the artist, has titled the painting “Ogre of the Mind”, and refers to it as “Goyaes- que”. More of Mr. Porter’s paintings are on display in the basement of Main Hall and in the Music Hall. They range from the grotesque “Ogre” to the sensitive relation of the three figures in “Fancille”. This painting is characterized by strong Oriental tendencies and a sensitive, unusual use of color. His work is expressionistic with strong decor ative qualities. Raiford Porter received his Bachelor of Arts degree at Rich mond Professional Institute and his Master’s degree at Women’s College in Greensboro, N. C. He then won a Fulbright scholarship to study in India. There he at tended Visiva Bharati University and San Miguel de Allende of the University of Guanajuato. This period of study is largely respon sible for the Oriental characteris tics of his work, although his paint ing showed some Oriental tenden cies even before this. Mr. Porter is now a resident of Winston-Salem and teaches art at High Point College. through a curriculum based on the heritage of the Classical and Christian backgrounds taught by a church-related faculty, streng thened within the college by a tra dition of honor and by active stu dent government, and enriched by a program of extracurricular acti vities.” In January, Dr. Gramley ap pointed a committee, headed by Dr. Phillip Africa, to plan a series of dinner meetings in order to decide what should be done. The Janu ary meeting was centered around presently a member of the choral a discussion of “Goals for Ameri- ^ cans” compiled by Ex-President ensemble. Anne isn t sure yet what her gigenhower’s Commission on Na- major will be, but she wants to enter the mission held. Next year Anne wants “to see mg these goals were narrowed to some improvements made in the specific trends which seemed rele- appearance 'and live-ability of Cle- yant to a small liberal arts college. well, “and already has two com mittees working on the project. Eleanor, known to her friends as “Wookie,” is from Davidson, N. C. She was also very active through out her high school years. Her activities included Student Council, annual staff, band, glee club, and cheerleading. She was football sponsor, Charlotte Woman’s Club Student of the Year, and Best-All- Around of her senior class. At Salem, Wookie has been the freshman class representative to the WRA council and to the Legis lative Board. She was pep man ager for FITS Field Day, and was chosen the Best Freshman Rat. Wookie plans to major in math. For recreation she turns to the bridge table and may often be found in Babcock’s Terrace Room. Wookie’s goal for the coming year is two-fold. First, she says, “Instead of having competition be tween Babcock and Clewell, I would like to bring the two dorms closer together.” Plans are now being made for a joint party at the beginning of next year. Se condly, she says, “I would like to see closer co-operation between the houses and Judicial Board.” Both presidents seem to feel that a closer relationship between Bab cock and Clewell is needed and both are willing to exert all their energies toward this goal.
