Is there no rest for the weary?

Florence Pollock, Judy Campbell, Chairman of the Carolinas-Virginia region for 1966-67, and Lyn Davis also attended. The Salemite office where her se quential activities culminated in her being selected Editor-in-Chief for the year 1966-’67. In this capacity, Nancy spent Tuesday and Wednesday nights frantically organizing the chaos that goes into producing a paper. A per fectionist about her work, she would often burn the midnight oil sitting in the hall of second floor Strong going over the galleys or trying to get her editorials to sound exactly right. Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of her Salemite work was the Thursday afternoons spent at the printers. Going there weekly for over a year, Nancy became good friends with the printers and soon her picture, like those of many past Salemite editors will hang upon their walls. In spite of the time spent on The Salemite, Nancy still managed to make Dean’s List. When time al lows, she enjoys knitting, reading, especially poetry, and going to the Krispy Kreme for donuts. Although her plans for the future are still in definite, Nancy intends to spend the summer touring Europe. The readers of The Salemite would like to thank Nancy for her superb accomplishments with The Salemite in giving to us informative and enjoyable reading from Salem’s point of view. By Dot Dicus “Dead Birds,” a documentary film of the mountain people of New Guinea, was recently on campus through the efforts of Edwin Shew- make. This ninety-minute color movie is from the library of the Piedmont University Center, and is thus available to any of the mem ber schools. About thirty people were present for the first showing on May 3. The movie is free and readily available to any group or organization interested in viewing it. According to an ancient legend of New Guinea, a long time ago a great battle took place between a snake and a bird. The prize of the contest was the fate of man kind. The snake, who sheds its skin and thus renews its life (there fore possessing eternal life, opposed the bird doomed to a brief, earth- bound existence. As the sun rises over the mountains, the camera fol lows a bird in flight over the scat tered mountain villages. Then, as the bird lights in a tree, the camera dives to the level of man and intro duces the audience to the natives as they begin their day. Children tend pigs; women work in the fields; and men stand watch in towers to guard against the enemy.

It is the belief of the people that there is in each man a center of spirit or life. If a man is killed, then his spirit is not at rest, and his ghost is not appeased, until another life has been taken in his name. In the words of the movie, “They kill to ease their souls. . . .” Therefore, the lives of these simple people are ruled entirely by spirits or ghosts of the dead. They pay tribute to and honor the deceased much in the manner of Oriental ancestor wor ship. Throughout this movie these peo ple are portrayed exactly as they are, performing the tasks which are so familiar to them. The expedi tion which made this film is the one on which Michael Rockefeller met his death, and Mr. Rockefeller does some of the narration. The bird, which is the symbol of the transitory life which man lead, finally leaves his perch anil flies away from the scene of trap ped ignorance which is the h ' | land of these men.

(Continued from Page 2) students who are classified as “bril liant” or “retarded.” Much of to day’s education in public schools is geared to needs of students who are neither brilliant nor retarded. And we have in North Carolina quite a number of colleges and technical institutes that take justifiable pride in the service they offer to the “average” boy or girl. May their tribe increase. But we debase the meaning of university if we develop an institution for “the education of the little man, the average man, not for the Phi Beta Kappa or the Ph.D.” and then call that institution a university. A university worthy of the name is a center of learning where there are excellent facilities not only for teaching but also for research; where high standards of learning are set for undergraduates who are capable of rising above mediocrity- in intellectual pursuits; where there are graduate and professional schools offering students advanced degrees that signify achievement of excellence in a chosen field of study; where there is emphasise development of men and womil with uncommon potential, whostl above-average ability marks thaj for leadership in the universe d| human experience. If Eastern North Carolina fcl serves a university—and manyolisl think that it does—Eastern Norllil Carolina deserves the real thing. 1 deserves the contacts with snperi«| minds; the high standards of lean'[ ing set for students; the civilmijj influences that expose our ptt'f judices and explode the folk b that often misguide our attitiJel and actions; the persistent deraaiiJ| for excellence that refuses to ( promise with mediocrity; and ail the exposures to elevated intclitt'l tual and cultural experience I tionally associated with a geniintl university. These things we siitelil need in Eastern Carolina, but will not get them by developing! institution simply to meet edm-l tional requirements of the “averajij man” and calling it a university. —Smithfield Herald A AU SALEMITES CAN WALK TO THE Where The Food Is The Best and Prices Reosonable OPEN 7 A.M.-8 P.M. - CLOSED SUNDAYS GIRLS!
