Pay close attention to the
announcements these days. Vari
ous dorms are sponsoring “Fire
side Chats” by professors, mem
bers of the administration, and
interesting people in and around
the Winston-Salem community.
South dormitory and others who
attended really enjoyed the in
formal talk they had with Dr.
Pennell. One of the best things
about these chats is that almost
any question can be brought up
and discussed. (Rumor has it
that this is exactly what hap
pened in South.)
Dr. Chandler came to Clewell
one night and we all learned
much about some policies here
at Salem. Another good result
of the discussion was that Dr.
Chandler learned some of our
concerns and feelings about life
Dorms are interested in hav
ing speakers, but are not clear as
to what would interest students
the most. While House Councils
are trying hard to please, they
would greatly appreciate any
suggestion about people to ask
or new topics to discuss. Profes
sors, Dr. Chandler, Dean John
son and many others have ex
pressed their enthusiasm about
keeping the “chats” going and
participating themselves. If you
are interested - or merely not
apathetic to the situation - make
yourself known and get those
minds going. What a good way
to procrastinate - by attending
something beneficial to your
learning experience at Salem!
1 feel terrible about being so
wishy-washy and sorry for my
self a short while ago. I guess
everybody goes through those
flashes of blues and wanting to
get away, from the horrors that
must be endured by man if he is
to live with himself and his fel
lows. But why does man always
have to screw everything? Why
rely on unnatural things to stim
ulate the brain and cloud the
memory or cloud the brain and
never quite kill the memory?
Are people so unable to live with
themselves that they have to
abuse their bodies, blow their
minds and confuse their peers’
thinking? It is at times like these,
when I am shocked back into
awareness of the pits of man’s
self-destmctive path, that I real
ly desire nothing greater than to
leave the world as we know it
and find a little cave or a private
hillside and be alone with the
more realistic “lower” creatures
of God’s universe. Maybe it is
unfortunate that man rarely has
the time or available place to be
by himself with nature. Maybe
man’s loss of communion with
the universe has cost him his
vision. Why oh why does “ad
vancing civilization” stand for
crowds and groups and artificial
ity, when man should be seeking
supreme simplicity and tranquil
ity as he ingests knowledge? Of
course my mistake is in ever
equating knowledge with advanc
ing civilization, or discoveries
I with wisdom ...

My hobby is quotations. I’ve kept a notebook since high school,
and my present collection included everyone from Blake to Dr.
Joyce Brothers! For my birthday last year, a friend gave me the
paperback called Barefoot inBoogar Hollow: Yestiday’s Sayin’s to
Liv by Today, so I thought I’d devote this week’s cabbage patch to
Most men folk don’t understand the value of knittin’ to us wom
en .. . hit gives us sump’n to think about whilst we’re a’talkin.
Ifn you ain’t made many mistake?, then you ain’t done very much.
I do feel lak women should learn to wurk fur a livin’ cauz most of
them is a’gonna git married sumday anyhow.
Hit ain’t the burden that gits us down . .. hit’s the way we carry it.
Cousin Roger always sed that we ain’t what we oughta be, ’n we
ain’t wat we’re a’gonna be, but, at least, we ain’t what we wuz.
Uncle William sed that the bigger a man’s head gits, the easier hit is
to fill his shoes.
Cousin Cory sez that the lazier a man is, the more he’s a’gonna do
Uncle Jake seys almost all marriages are happy. . . but hits the
livin’ together afterwards that cauzes all the truble.
My ole Caleb tole his boys that the man what swears the loudest ‘n
the worst usually ain’t the best fighter.
Nowadays a necessity is jus almost anything that you see in a friend s
Uncle Jimmie sez that when you see someone make a mistake, at
least you knows that he’s done tried to do sump’n.
Uncle Saul, who taught school, usta say that a discussion wuz
a’swappin’ of knowledge, ‘n that an argumint wuz just a’swappin’
All the folks I’ve seed that gits all wrapped up in themselves shore do
make small packages.
My Aunt Alvira tried so hard to make Uncle Kaleb a good husband
that she never did quite hav the time to be a good wife.
Fat ole Aunt Sophie seys we all ought to eat, drink ‘n be merry fur
tomorrow we may diet.
Our mayor is a politician who stands fur what he thinks other
folks around here will fall fur.
If you feel like you’ve done a good job hit plezes you’n thats good.
If’n you think you did it perfectly . . . you’re in truble.
If’n you chase happiness too hard, you’re gonna find misery runmn
along beside you.
Thars way too many folks that giv up a’lookin fur wurk jus as soon
as they find a job.
And, finally, this quote is the way I feel every week after I finish
writing my column;
Don’t foigit, ever time you giv sumbody a piece of yo mind, hits
done left another empty space up thar.

Students Turn Prof
On In Class
by Trudy Winstead
A tent pitched in lofty moun
tains, a trail to follow - these
would seem to be the ingredients
for an ideal weekend for Mrs.
Nancy Bristol of the Home Eco
nomics Department. A restful
scene indeed. But not for long
for Mrs. Bristol has been on the
move since she was a small child.
At the age of three she and her
Air Force family moved to Ger
many where they lived for five
years. Her junior high and high
school years were spent in Texas,
then on to Montreat-Anderson
College in Brevard where she
met her husband Bill on the first
day. Mrs. Bristol completed her
undergraduate studies at Western
Carolina University and immedi
ately began work on a Master’s
in Housing and Interior Design
For the next two years, she
and her now Army husband lived
in a multitude of places, includ
ing Lawton, Oklahoma, Augusta,
Fayetteville, and Asheville. But
did Mrs. Bristol let these moves
interfere with her education?
Certainly not! She continued
her Master’s long distance, writ
ing thesis and commuting the
varied distances when necessary.
After completing a tour in
Vietman, hisband Bill returned
to get acquainted with son, Dav
id, now sixteen months old, and
continue his graduate education
in Chemistry at U.N.C.-G. Dur
ing this time Mrs. Bristol was
busy taking care of David and
designing interiors for Roun
tree’s in Greensboro. They,
along with their Irish Setter pup,
Bristol’s Brandywine Tara, now
live in High Point with future
plans for a move either to the
mountains or the coast.
Mrs. Bristol’s calm, expressive
manner will surely be an asset to
harried students. We were im
mediately put at ease by her
delightful sense of humor and
enthusiasm. A down to earth,
fun loving lady, Salem is surely
lucky to have her.
