I'm hungry. And you know why? Because I just ate lunch at
the Salem Slop Shoppe. We had a scrumptious repast of boiled
glue with cheese drippings, frozen bread, anemic tomatoes, and
for dessert, something like aged hickory chips. That sort of stuff
is an insult, even to a pig's stomach! Sadly, the week-end meals
are even worse. We stand in line for twenty minutes to get food
that resembles fried tires on eight-inch-thick buns, barbecued fat,
or tired, over-weight beans. At least the Sunday meals are slightly
divine. But the honeymoon ends, come Monday lunch.
I suppose we fare better than most colleges, as far as food is
concerned. Institutionalized food is almost always starchy and
overcooked. Nevertheless, there must be a better way to feed six
hundred starving Salemltes and still keep within The Budget.
For instance, we all could use a lot less bread, grease, and
starch; soup, salads, fruit, and well-cooked meat should be sub
stituted. A little variety and imagination in the meal-planning
would be appreciated. Our meals aren't well-balanced or nourish
ing enough. I find it hard to believe that macaroni is a good sub
stitute for meat, or that powdered eggs and potatoes are as nutri
tious as the real things, or that white bread is better for the body
than whole-wheat or rye.
Something must be done soon. My ribs are showing and I'm
losing Inches every week of valuable cleavage! Come, Refectory,
hear my undernourished plea!

Bicentennial Celebration Committee
Seeks Student Ideas, Participation
In the excitement and frustration
of a new semester, perhaps we have
forgotten that Salem’s bicentennial
celebration begins this year. A year
is not too much time to establish
committees, select a theme, and lay
the foundation for a commemoration
of Salem’s past 200 years and for
an anticipation of her future.
So far only tentative plans have
been suggested. As Mr. Archie
Davis said in his speech January 29,
“Nothing definite has been done be
cause, fundamentally, we are look
ing to you . . . for the theme, how
you want to run it, the type of
participants or just whom you might
want to bring in . . .’’ Committees
welcome students to make 1972 a
complete success. Mr Davis sug
gested, “We should spare nothing
to make this a richly rewarding
year.” This challenge includes stu
We who will be here in 1972
ought to consider the reflection the
200th year offers. Salem’s past is
something of which to be proud,
since Salem was the first school to
educate women in this area. Be
cause it has been able to remain
open through various crises, it has
made a continuing contribution to
However, the bicentennial com
mittee does not intend to focus
sentimentally on the past 200 years.
The present curriculum changes and
the expanded variety of courses of
fered under 4-1-4 emphasize Salem s
attention to the present and antici
pation of the future needs of the
students. “If it (the past) has been
that meaningful,” according to Mr.
Davis, “whatever we do in the good
year 1972 should be designed to gird
this institution for the future a
year of genuine enrichment.” Per
haps our next symposium might
pertain to some future concern in
education, such as recent theories in
education, and demonstrate Salem s
awareness of the future. All these
aspects must be included in the
The publicity committee, headed
by publicity director Mrs. Esther
Mock, hopes to create local, state,
and national interest in Salem’s
celebration; and the News Bureau
will welcome any suggestions by the
student body. In fact, the sooner
suggestions are made, the better
the chances of incorporating them
in the plans.
Mr. Davis challenges us by say
ing, ”... If we are imaginative
and innovative in the way we ap
proach the bicentennial and have
the right kind of spirit about it, I
think the life, of this institution can
be deeply enriched.” For example,
there is still not a theme for the
bicentennial Sign-up lists are al
ready posted in the Refectory; now
is the time to speak up and begin
work to make Salem’s bicentennial
worthy of the school.
Saacke Represents Salem
In Glamour Contest
Each year Glamour magazine con
ducts a national contest to select
ten outstanding college women. The
winners are required to show leader
ship in some area, on campus or in
the community in politics, the arts,
the sciences, social work, or some
sort of field work. Salem students
chose to enter junior Marily Saacke
on the basis of her leadership
abilities in many areas.
Marily has excelled at Salem since
her freshman year, when she was
co-chairman of Founder’s Day, the
freshman representative to the Lec
ture-Assembly Committee, and a
participant in activities such as
basketball, hockey, and tennis.
Since her freshman achievements
Marily has been active in the Win
ston-Salem tutoring program. Head
start, and the Red Cross. She has
been chairman of the sophomore
Children’s Christmas Party, an
SNEA member, and a member of
the Archway Singers. In addition,
she has been a student representa
tive to the Teacher-Education Com
mittee, a Legislative Board member,
an Oslo Scholar, and student chair
man of the Psychology Commit'ee.
Her extraordinary school participa
tion has been recognized by the
Order of the Scorpion, of which she
is a member.
As Salem’s representative in the
Glamour contest, Marily is required
to write a 500-750 word essay to
supplement her full-length and head
photos. In this essay she must de
scribe her areas of involvement as
well as her future plans. Marily
is a psychology major, and intends
to go into guidance and counseling
in addition to teaching, for which
her extra-curricular work somewhat
has prepared her.
If Marily should win, she would
first be required to sign a release
as a semi-finalist. She would not
be allowed to associate herself with
any stores or manufacturers, but
could appear on television or the
radio in connection with the “10
Outstanding Collegiates” contest. As
a winner Marily would be a guest
of Glamour, and would be publicized
in the August college issue; also
she would receive an all-expense
paid world tour with the other girls.
In this contest the rewards for
hard work are exciting. Marily has
worked hard to aid Salem and the
community, so it is natural for her
to represent us in the Glamour con
test. Let us join in wishing her
