Faculty Advisory Board
Approves Two Petitions
The Faculty Advisory Board, on
the recommendation of the Legis
lative Board, has approved two
petitions — one to grant incoming
freshmen general permission (if
parents permit) for all out-of-town
trips and in-town overnights, ex
cept in those instances stated in
the handbook, and the second
abolishing day-time sign-outs.
The new general permission ap
plies to freshmen entering Salem
in the fall of 1961. Forms will be
sent to parents before their daugh
ters come. If signed, the students
will not be required to have home
permission for each overnight
taken except as stated in the hand
book. This includes out-of-town
day trips if the student returns
before 7 ;30 p.m.
The elimination of day-time sign-
outs becomes effective today, May
5. Students will not be required
to sign-out during the day unless
they plan to return to Salem after
7:30 p.m. In this case, they sign-
out as usual on the night sheet in
their dorms. If for some unex
pected reason a student does not
return before 7:30 p.m., she must
sign in on the night sheet so
there will be a record of her even
ing engagements. Night sign-outs
will continue as in the past.
Irene McKain, student of Mar
garet Sandresky, will give her
graduating organ recital in Old
Chapel at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, May
12. Her program will include “Cha
conne” and “Elevation: Recit de
Tierce en Taille” by Couperin,
“Une Vierge Pucelle” by Le Begue,
“Prelude and Fugue in A Minor”
by Bach, “A Chorale Prelude: A
Little Lamb Bears All Our Guilt”
by Pepping, and “Variations On A
Noel” by Dupre.
Irene, who is majoring in organ
music, is from Whitmire, South
Carolina. She attended Montreat
College where she studied for two
years under Clair Hardenstine.
Entering Salem in 1959, she studied
under John Mueller, who, as a Ful-
bright Scholar, is on a year’s leave
Dr. Gramley stated that the ap
proval of eliminating day-time
sign-outs “. . . rests on the belief
that students will protect their own
interests by voluntarily signing out
if they desire to be reached in case
of emergency or in the case of
unexpected visits by friends and
parents.” Optional sheets will be
placed in each dorm for this pur
pose. It is the hope of the Legis
lative Board, the Faculty Advisory
Board, and Dr. Gramley that stu
dents will leave word of their
whereabouts so they may be
reached in case of emergency.

Goddard College, Plainfield, Vt.,

robe, Kenya, and also in Dar-Es
