Eight New Members Join
Order Of The Scorpion
As Honorary Member and Ad
visor to the Order of the Scorpion,
Dean Hixson would like to make
the following announcement:
The Order of the Scorpion has
been in existence for more than 30
years. Its sole purpose and ideal
is service to Salem with no thought
of personal glory for individual
members or for the Order itself.
Membership is restricted to juniors
and seniors, and the number does
not at any time exceed fourteen.
Membership does not require the
highest academic average or the
strongest record of leadership, but
it does place high obligation on
those upon whom the honor of
membership is bestowed. The Scor
pions have no planned program;
they may do nothing big, they may
devote their energies to intangible,
small, unrecognized needs. They
may also be the moving force or
the quiet influence behind some
larger project. At all times the
Order of the Scorpion attempts to
be alert and responsive in some
tangible way to such needs as may
be observed by its members or re
ferred to it by others.
The new members of the Order
of the Scorpion are;
Old members of the Order are:
