Six Faculty Members To Leave; Scorpions Name Two

By Laurie Lake, Karen Park,
and Beth Hunter
Next year, Salem is losing six
aluable faculty members.
Dr. Charles Rice has been siibsti-
uting for Clark Thompson who
! returning next year after taking
raduate courses at Brown Univer
ity. Last fall, Dr. Rice was of-
ered the chance to teach in Alice,
huth Africa at Adams United Col-
;ge for the school’s winter term—
uly through December. The col-
;ge is an interdenominationally
ponsored school for Africans. At
he same time, Duke Divinity
ichool offered him a place on the
acuity. Since Dr. Rice does not

emester, he is able to accept both

portant rewards of his year at
Salem have been the acquaintances
and life-long friends he has made.
He has enjoyed the hospitality of
Salem’s Moravians and the general
congeniality of the college. His
first college teaching'experience has
been so rewarding that he plans to
continue in the teaching field.
Mrs. Tietta Marrotte, sociology
teacher, will be able to devote more
of her time next year to her hus
band, two children, and two dogs.
As a substitute instructor for Mr.
Wendt, who is returning next year
to Salem’s faculty, she has found
the pace of teaching and settling
into a new home a little hectic.
She says, however, that she has
been captivated by Old Salem’s ro
mantic atmosphere, and has
thoroughly enjoyed her teaching
experience—especially her introduc
tory sociology classes. She enjoys
instilling an interest in the subject
in her students.
This summer, she plans to finish
some household projects and take
a trip to New England and see her
husband’s family in Cape Cod.
Mr. Parker, currently in Salem’s
math department, is going to Guil
ford College next year, where he
has a busy schedule planned. First
of all, he hopes to w'rite a disser
tation, which will complete his doc
torate in math. Though he has yet
to prove a theorem for his degree,
he has severa ideas in progress.
Besides working on his dissertation,
Mr. Parker will also be teaching-
math, of course—and coaching Guil
ford’s golf team.
In the year he has been here,
Mr. Parker has been very active in
campus activities. Besides serving
on the Admissions Committee, he
has been advisor for the Freshman
Class, and, with Olive Jenkins’ help,
won the Student-Faculty tennis
tournament this past Saturday.

public high school with a total of
1 academic units: 4 English, 4

1% of her class and reported that
hemistry and Algebra were most
fficult for her.
She applied to Salem in Novem-

along too well, so he came back to
complete his master’s degree at the
University of North Carolina, where
he is also doing his doctorial W’ork.
Sports are his ruling passion (be
sides his wife and daughter). He
is an avid participant in tennis,
swimming, golf, and basketball, and
plans to work at the Jefferson
Standard Life Insurance Club this
summer, teaching tennis, swimming,
and perhaps golf.
Mrs. Nancy Weiland, instructor in
biology for the past year at Salem,
will be going north next year. She
and her husband will be in Ann

Dr. Michael Lewis, Dr. Lucy
Austin, Mrs. Lucile Scott, and Mr.
Adam Stiener met with the Foreign
Language Club on Wednesday, May
1, to answer any questions concern
ing France, Spain, Italy, Germany,
and Greece. Sharing ideas w'as the
object of the meeting; however, this
aim was quickly altered by Dr. Aus
tin to sharing opinions.
Students asked questions dealing
with a variety of subjects from con
temporary religion to the number
of people receiving their doctorates
in Greek or Latin.
After Dr. Lewis explained that
the avant garde thinkers in French
religion were leaders in ecumenical
revision of Catholicism in that coun
try, the group jumped into the
cheating situation in Germany,
Greece, Italy, and Spain. Mr. Stei
ner brought out that the compe
tition in German schools was so
great that cheating was almost the
only way a student of average in
telligence could pass. In Greece
and Italy, as well as Germany, the
universities are for the elite. Mrs.
Scott added that Spanish students
cheated openly, and actually that
nation had a deplorable educational
system. Mr. Stiener was quick to
compare the Europeans’ cheating in
schools to the shady deals in Ameri
can big business.
While attending gymnasium, the
German college preparatory school,
students were not on an honor sys
tem, consequently, a police system
was enforced. Taking fourteen to
fifteen courses compared to our five,
these young Germans are expelled
if they flunk two tests.
Dr. Lewis tried to explain how
foreigners earned the title Doctor
in France. The students are com
pletely on their own. They attend
those classes and read those books
which would be beneficial to them.
For the non-Frenchman the re
quirements are the same; however,
the title is Doctoral d’Etat.
The group then turned to Dr.
Austin who believes a considerable
number of young people are getting
their Ph.D’s in Greek and Latin.
She firmly suggested that American
students take more languages, other
than Latin and Greek (ie. Russian,
Chinese, Swaheli). A common be
lief was that oriental languages
should be stressed.
After a friendly disagreement
about what exactly is the most im
portant language, a brief discussion
followed concerning German and
Spanish literature and their stages.
The discussion then shifted to
20th century relations between
France and Germany bringing in
Italy, Russia, and the United States.
All in all, the program was very
enlightening and beneficial to every

On S. E. Asia
Dr. Robert Tilman addressed
Salem in assembly Wednesday,
May 8, on the topic of “Southeast
Asia and American Foreign Policy.”
Dr. Tilman is Assistant Professor
of Political Science at Yale, and he
has a special interest in the study
of Southeast Asia.
Dr. Tilman asserted that because
of its natural diversity. Southeast
Asia should never be expected to
be a stable area. There are ani
mosities between the people of Cam
bodia and those of Thailand, and
have been since time began. There
are also animosities between the
Montagnards of Vietnam and the
Lowlanders, and the Chinese and
non-Chinese elements. These ani
mosities, as well aS; the conflicts
over national borders which split re
lated tribes, and a revolution of
rising expectations, cause a turbu
lent and constantly changing situ
He also made the point that no
outside state can do for a South
east Asian state what that state
does not want to do for itself. Dr.

policy success in Southeast Asia has
been with Indonesia, where the peo-

Channel 8 Has
For the third straight year,
WGHP-Television, Channel 8 is
conducting “CAMPUS TALENT”
contests among fourteen colleges
and universities in Piedmont North
Carolina. Auditions are being held
now at the individual colleges to
select representatives. These talen
ted collegiates will be individually
“pre-taped” and the show will be
put together and aired Saturday
night. May 25th, 1968 (9:30-10:30).
A $500.00 scholarship will be
awarded to the winning school, also
a portable television set to the win
ner and portable radios to the se
cond and third place winners.
The display of talent, in fields
of music, and drama, individual
representatives and groups, is out
standing. The production is, un
doubtedly, a tribute to the young
people of the nation and our state.
