Volume LIV Salem College, Winston-Salem, IM. C., Monday, October 23, 1972 Number 10 i i Limericks Judged Winners Take All The Salemite is proud to an nounce the winners of the 1972 Limerick Contest sponsored by Incunabula. First prize - a case of beer - goes to Alden Hanson and Karen McCotter of Sisters dorm for their winning limerick: Limerick Contest Winner Karen McCotter takes a break from her job at the Salem Tavern, while co-author Jeri Bounds, 2nd place winner, relaxes in her dorm room. There once was an artist named da Vinci, Who was painting Mona Lisa Givenchi. A true Renaissance man. With one wandering hand. She smiled as she eried, “Don’t pinch me. ” There was a young man from Missouri Who incurred his own party’s fury By getting well. (He was afflicted) And for this was convicted By a Democratic trial without jury! He’ll take ‘72 Leaving ‘6 for Agnew. My hope is a ballot box Nix. '72 Graduate The second-place prize of wine and cheese was captured by Jeri Boundss of Clewell for this little ditty: Enjoys Job by Nan Wilson For the benefit of the fresh men and the transfer students, the young Administrative Assis tant of the FAC is Laura Crump- ler, a Salem graduate of the class of ‘72. Although she some times has a slightly puzzled ex pression on her face, it is not be cause she is new here, it is be cause her job is new not only to her, but to Salem College. The Administration decided last spring that someone needed to be permanently employed in the Fine Arts Center as an over seer, because the building is in constant demand. When Laura accepted the job, she was a little hesitant because she did not know what she was getting her self into, but now that she is settled in Winston, she is certain she made the right decision. Her job as Administrative As sistant is to make certain the rooms are reserved and properly set-up. She is also in charge of “the light girls” and many other little behind-the-scene matters of which most of us are not aware. "Some days are not quite as hec tic”, comments Laura and she sometimes has an opportunity to read a little for fun. Every afternoon around 5:30 Laura pulls out of the FAC park ing lot in her new yellow Dodge Dart Swinger and heads home. She describes home as a modest basement apartment supplied with her own “early attic” furni ture. She says it only has two windows, but “it has a fireplace — a mobile fireplace!” During her spare time Laura enjoys painting, sewing, reading, and of course, the T. 0. G. This past summer she was a dorm mo ther at Governor’s School. She hopes to be able to teach the gifted children someday, but since there are no winter schools for gifted children now in the United States, we look forward to having Laura around for a while. Laura says, “living by your self is often lonesome” and she wishes more people would come by to see her. There was a young lady from Bagdad, Whose mother suspected had been had. “Who did it?!” she cried- The daughter replied, “Why mother, your brother, my dad!” Brant Godfrey, one of Sa lem’s few co-eds, was rewarded with a six-pack and peanuts for his third-place limerick: As 1 was once walking through Paris I saw a sight which did embarrass— The lady was nude. Her poddle was crude And the gen d ‘armesjust stared at her bare-ass! There once was a library, you see. That was issued a mad decree To move itself over And let men play rover Now we wake up at seven thirtee. '"i “Co-ed” Brant Godfrey only got “peanuts” for his 3rd place limerick. Republicans spelled back wards is “nacilbupers” Seems fitting, considering they ’re super blupers Mr. Agnew will hang on Till the press is all gone. Followed by Mitchell and Mitchell, the party poopers. There was a young student at Salem Who’d write nasty letters and mail ‘em To each of his profs Who, with sly smirks and scoffs Had shown the presump tion to fail ‘im. There one was a sheepdog named Rufus, Who unfortunately was terribly toothless. When called on to speak. He could only squeak. So everyone just called him Woofless. There once was a redneck named Ray Who chewed toothpicks throughout the whole day He scratched off in his car Knocked the toothpick The following entries have been awarded honorable men tion by the Salemite staff: / foresee a political fix A scheme that’s undoubt edly Dick’s ajar And now doesn ’t have too much to say.

Bell Tel Comes Oktober f est Oct. 23 - Birthday of Francis Hopkinson Smith - American engineer, contractor, artist, nov elist, and essayist, born in 1838. sprained his back doing so. Oct. 24-TheU.N. Charter Oct. 25 - Feast of St. Crispin - the patron saint of shoemakers, saddlers, and tanners. They sold shoes cheaply to the poor, and legend has it that angels provi ded their leather. Oct. 27 - Navy-Roosevelt Day The birthday of Theodore Roos evelt just happened to fall on the anniversary of a committee re port to Congress suggesting the foundation of a navy. Oct. 28 - Republic of Czechos- lavakia Day. Oct. 26 - Laying the Corner stone of Dartmouth Hall - The Earl of Dartmouth laid the cor nerstone for a new Dartmouth Hall in 1904 (and probably Oct. 29 - A Historic Election - this is too complicated to ex plain, but the election, held m 1733 was significant because the governor of New York was h able to restrict freedom of the press. For the last few weeks we girls have heard new tones in the calls of, “Man on the hall.” Those of us who have been at Salem for several years can iden tify the tembre of each manly call with the repairman to whom it belongs. It was a nice change to hear some new voices chiming in, and with such zest. Apparently the experience was a true novelty for the min ions of the Bell Telephone Com pany. To be allowed to roam freely through the dorms and to get to stand giggling in the hall while some poor girl scrambled for clothes on a Saturday morn ing really turned them on. One man did that to me three times in one day. He brought all three of his friends to see the exact spot of installation at three dif ferent times. It must have been amusing to see me come to the door in a different combination from the heap on the floor each time. But this behavior did not go unrevenged. We Seniors did wonders for the hangover of one telephone man who was working behind Clewell early on the morning of Founder’s Day. I hope that everyone is enjoy ing their new found freedom from the dime rat race. And who else has discovered that one need only pick up the phone rather than run all the way upstairs to tell someone to turn down the stereo? The advantages are really worth that monthly bill, aren’t they girls? Aren’t they? Oh, well I’m sure that your male callers think so!
