Pam Hardison, whose father is
running for the Carolina state
legislature from Deep Run, North
Carolina, is a promising selection
for editor of next year’s Sights and
Insights. Pam realizes that an an-
ual editor should strive for a unique
overview of the whole year. She
advocates an “enjoyable, GOOD
annual, representative of the year
for students.”
Pam has many interests, a sur
prising majority of which are not
specifically school-oriented. In ad
dition to her present duties on the
Y-Cabinet, as hall president in Sis
ters Dorm, Chairman of the
SSC, and her programming of
HeadStart, she watches television,
plays a lot, pauses every Thursday

For Queens Upperclassmen

Queens College students unani
mously approved a new policy of
“self-limiting hours” Tuesday morn
ing in a Student Government As
sociation assembly.
The new policy will eliminate cur
fews for all students 21 and older
or any other student who has her
parents’ permission to participate.
The only exception to the policy
will be first semester freshmen who
will continue to observe present
March 16, the first day after
spring break, is the target date for
implementing the new policy.
The policy approved this week by
the Advisory Committee (including
the college president, dean of stu
dents and academic dean) was the
same as one presented to them by
the Resident Student Council with
the exception of the provision for
first semester freshmen.
In explaining the advisory com
mittee’s action. Dean of Students
Mrs. Ann Gebhardt said:
‘We feel today’s students are
tnore mature than in the past. By
having more freedom, we feel they
may more fully accept the responsi-
Mlities ahead.”
First semester freshmen were ex
cluded from the policy, Mrs. Geb
hardt said, “because we feel that a
freshman has so many adjustments
to make in coming to college in the
first place.”
‘They have new freedoms to
learn to deal with, particularly how
to manage their time. We feel it
would be unfair to new freshmen
and to their parents to give the
added responsibility of setting their
own curfews.”
In the student assembly Tuesday
morning, RSC President Carolyn
Hall read the proposal for “self-
limiting hours” as approved by the
advisory committee, and it was
adopted unanimously without dis

fie recommendation was presented
to the Advisory Committee at the
®nd of January.
Last Thursday girls who felt the
committee had been too slow in
answering their request staged a
15-minute walkout from the dormi
tories after closing hours.
More than half the resident stu
dent enrollment at Queens partici
pated in the walkout to express
their support of the recommended
policy change.
The walkout was without inci
dent, and the committee’s action
accepting the recommendation ap
parently was not a result of the
walkout. Mrs. Gebhardt had said
last week before the walkout that
she expected it would be acted upon
this week.

By Betsy Fleming
Make Monday, April 13, a red-
letter day on your calendar! John
S. Mueller, Head of Salem’s Organ
Department, will be performing ex
citing organ works from the French
and German Baroque, Romantic,
and contemporary periods in Shir

WFU Faculty Votes
Experimental 4-1-4
On March 9, the undergraduate
faculty at Wake Forest University
approved a recommendation that
the four-one-four scholastic pro
gram be initiated on a two year ex
perimental basis.
The program will begin in the
fall of 1971 and will provide a one-
month winter semester for special
courses and projects. The rest of
the school year will be split into
two fourteen-week semesters.
The faculty will vote on other
proposed curriculum changes later
this spring. These proposals include
plans which would abolish hour re
quirements for graduation in favor
of 3SJ4 courses. Another change
proposes that courses such as band,
choir, military science and some
physical education courses be given
as half-courses.
A student would have to maintain
a C average in full courses and
half-courses in order to graduate.
Quality points earned in half
courses cannot help to bring up
the grade average of full-courses.
include: selections from “Premier
Livre d’Orgue”—^Nicolas de Grigny;
“Concerto in A minor” — Antonio
Vivaldi-Bach; the chorale prelude,
“Allein Gott in der Hoh sei Ehr”
and the “Prelude and Fugue in G
Major”—Johann Sebastian Bach ;
“Piece Herioque” — Cesar Frank;
“Variations on ‘Nun Komm der
Heiden Heiland’” — Hugo Distler;
and the “Litanies”—Jehan Alain.
Dr. Mueller received his Doctor
of Musical Arts Degree from Bos
ton University last summer. His
earlier degrees came from Oherlin
College, The University of Michi
gan, and Frankfurt, Germany,
where he was a Fulbright Grantee
studying organ with Helmut Wal-
cha and harpschord with F'rau
Maria Jaeger. He has been re
citalist at Duke University, Har
vard University, Massachusetts In
stitute of Technology, Davidson
College, Shorter College, a guest
faculty member at the Longy School
of Music, Cambridge, Mass., and
summer organist and choirmaster
at Harvard University.
Currently Dr. Mueller is head of
the Organ Department of Salem
College, teacher of organ at the
North Carolina School of the Arts,
and Director of Music at Reynolda
Presbyterian Church.
Come and join the listeners April
13, in Shirley Recital Hall just be
fore 8:15 p.m.
at 9 p.m. to meditate on Tom Jones,
and lives on a constant diet. Being
naturally industrious, Pam recently
composed a list of her ten major
interests, including David Hastings
in position number five and an
anonymous professor in an even
higher rank.
During her interview Pam
stressed, “I used to like to drive my
car (I got too many parking
tickets) !” Strangely, she also felt
the need to emphasize her academic
status, “I did go to school this se
mester ... I wanta pass this se
mester, first of all!” Somehow,
though, Pam conveys a total cap
ability in matters of business im
portance. She is an English major,
is minoring in history, and seriously
contemplates entering law school
after graduation from Salem.
Pam has many ideas ready to
pour into the student body, and
truly wishes to use her position as
annual editor to the utmost advan
tage for everyone. Her “scintillating”
wit and refreshing candor will aid
her in her quest for improvement.

New names are certainly buzzing
inside the Archway room! Not only
does the Archway have a new title—■
Incunabula—it also has a new edi
tor— Mary Pickens, better known
as “Pick.”
Mary is from Nashville, Tennes
see, where she was a member of
her high school literary club and
co-editor of the literary magazine.
She has been a member of the
Archway staff since her freshman
year at Salem, serving as Business
Manager last year and Assistant
Editor this year. Mary has also
found time for other responsibilities
such as heading the Sophomore
Christmas Banquet Skit Committee,
being Treasurer of the Junior Class,
and always devoting long hours as
a song writer for Founders’ Day.
In what direction does its new
editor hope to lead the Incunabula?
Mary plans to do some joint liter
ary work with the Salemite and
thereby increase student awareness
of Salem’s literary aspects. She
also hopes to encourage student in
terest in and contributions to the
Incunabula. With “Pick” as its edi
tor, the Incunabula is unquestion
ably in good hatids !

Sara Engram is well qualified to
be the new editor of The Salemite.
Before coming to Salem she at
tended high school for four years.
She has worked on The Salemite
staff since her freshman year as a
writer. News Editor, and this year as
Managing Editor, besides the fact
that she has made weekly trips to
the printer’s. She is majoring in
religion and minoring in English.
Among her many honors, she is a
Salem Scholar, was an Oslo Scholar
last summer, is on the Admissions
Committee, won the President’s
Prize in religion, and the Sopho
more English Research Award.
Sara’s main interests are flying in
helicopters, snailwatching, burning
newspapers, and being creative. Her
plans for The Salemite include
cleaning up The Salemite (office),
trying to keep the ashtrays on the
editors’ round table emptied, and
she also has a few spectacular and
entertaining ideas planned such as
painting The Salemite office red,
white, and black, for as any first
grader knows a good newspaper is
black, white and read all over.
Everyone is invited, popcorn and
your favorite beverages will be ser
A new treat is in store for Salem-
ites, a new “SURPRISE” column
of cartoon and social comment.
Sara and staff will also make a
concerted effort to put out a weekly
paper, and it is hoped that all in
terested sophomores and freshmen
will join the ranks and keep The
Salemite the uncensored voice of
the college community.
As for future plans, it was hard
to pin Sara down to anything spe
cific. She mentioned something
about a desire to be a printer, a
travel agent for all kinds of trips,
head of the VTA, or a playwright.
How'ever, we know that no matter
what Sara chooses with her religion
major, it is certain that she will
move on to “Higher” things.
Joanne Featherstone, the noted actress, will appear in Hanes
Auditorium Wednesday, April 8 at 11; a.m. She will present
"A Program of American Negro Literature From Pre-Civil War
To Today "
