Salem student Margaret Ever- I hart was enroute to the third floor when she came upon Mr. Steiner, our esteemed German professor, standing on the stairs staring at the wall. As she at tempted to pass, Mr. Steiner commented, “There’s a bat on the wall.” Rather than miss the [excitement, Ms. Everhart chose [to watch the procedure for deal- I ing with the bat.

Choosing to watch Steiner watch the bat for Mr. Jordan, Ms. Ever hart thought she could transact some school business. She pre sented Steiner with a German letter and asked him for assis tance in grammatical corrections. Mr. Steiner agreed on the con dition that Ms. Everhart watch the bat for him and, she agree ing, he read her letter. Shortly after this a maid at tempted to pass the bat, but upon being told of its presence, she turned the other way. This was not the case with the stu dent who bravely made it past the minute monster before being repulsed. At this point Mr. Jor dan returend from the biology lab carrying a large net with which to snare the bat. He dra matically netted the tiny'animal, but realized too late that he had nothing with which to cover the opening in the net. The bat squealed shrilly, which attracted the attention of another passing student, Sara Carson, who hero ically offered her assistance in the matter. Mr. Jordan gladly accepted her offer of assistance, taking her proffered notebook to cover the net. Mr. Jordan and Sara then departed for - presum ably - the science building to de posit their treasure with the cow ardly biology professors. His job finished, Mr. Steiner proudly re turned to his office on the sec ond floor while Margaret Ever hart returned to her student duties of watching professors in the classroom rather than on the ■ stairwells.

For ap proximately two hours we watched a variety of cases come and go and listened to the legal verbiage of the lawyers. The two most fascinating as pects of the events in the court room were the informality and the amount of perjury. As one whose ixperience with court rooms is limited to the austere ness of Perry Mason and the ' purity of Owen Marshall’s wit nesses, 1 was astounded by what 1 saw. There were no brilliant cross-examinations, no on-the- stand confessions, and no sur prise witnesses. In tact it was all rather dull after the novelty of our surroundings wore off The highliglit of the morning was watching attorney and new State House representative Ed Powell walk in and out of the room twice. Our case was finally called and we appeared before the bench, so to speak. At least we all took the oath, even if we weren’t called on to testify. However, Mr. Terrell gave a forceful testimony which was sufficient for the judge to sen tence the young man. This was the one caught on the Academy grounds Thanksgiving morning (appr. 1:30 a.m.) with an ami- load of articles belonging to the Academy girls. He also has been found on the college campus and in the dormitories. Our big dis- ■ appointment was that he was on ly charged with loitering and trespassing, rather than theft. The sentence was tor thirty days and was suspended for three years on the condition that he stay off of all Moravian-owned property for those three years. Hopefully, this will be enough to persuade the young gentleman to stay away from the campus permanently. But it anyone runs into a young black man. about 18 or 19 years old, 5’6” tall and he tells you that he is looking for the boy’s gym. be suspicious.
