Date For Teacher

Thursday, September 27, 1973
College seniors preparing to
teach school may take the Na
tional Teacher Examinations on
any of the four different test dates
announced by Educational Testing
Service, a nonprofit, educational
organization which prepares and
administers this testing program.
New dates for the testing of
prospective teachers are: Novem
ber 10, 1973, and January 26,
April 6, and July 20, 1974. The
tests will be given at nearly 500
locations throughout the United
States, ETS said.
The Salemite ha.s been experiencing an economic up
heaval of its own with the same disastrous entanglements
presently found in the inflationary state of the country. In
the succession of staff members which occurs annually, un
familiarity with the proceedings of the previous stafl'
results. It is not perhaps the most efficient method for
organizing a college newspaper; but, the turnover of stu
dents leaving school and the addition of students in the
fall necessitates that the paper have a new staff each
academic year. Conseciuently, substantial debts may be
incurred by a pi-evious staff unknown to their inheritors.
Unfortunately, the present members of The Salemite staff
have found themselves in such a position.
As a result of last year’s overspending, the newspaper
is in debt to the college foi- the large sum of $869.00. This
debt must be paid immediately once appropriate funds are
obtained. Every yeai- the Student Government As.sociation
allocates $2,500.00 to The Salemite. This amount is the
I)aper’s share of the $49.00 fee collected from each student
at Registi-ation. Although this amount will cover the debt
owed to the college. The Salemite will be left operating on
two-thirds of the spending budget it has had in previous
The college newspaper predictably counts on an addi
tional $2,200.00 pel’ year from advertisements and subscrip
tions. However, advertising revenue will decrease this year
with a reduction in the size of the newspaper itself. This
.vear the newspaper will be published in editions of four
pages instead of an eight jiage edition. At half the size
of last year’s imiier, we can subsequently expect half as
many ads jier week in the paper. As a standard procedure,
we do limit the amount of advertising space available in
the paper to 25' of the total column inches.
Even with the publication of a smaller newspaper, there
•still exists a struggle to continue the paper as a weekly.
■Newsprint, the actual paper on which the newspaper is
published, i.s cpiite scarce. Printing costs have gone up,
exemplary of the rising costs for services which the entire
country is experiencing.
In an eflort to conserve the quality of the newspaper
the stalf has adopted its own Phase IV. A change in format
has been approved. This year the newspaper will be publish
ed on glossy paper as opposed to newspi-int for the reasons
iuready mentioned. The printing company has been changed
to a cheapei- firm in Winston-Salem. The paper will be
tour pages in hopes that it can continue as a weekly. There
will be no syndicated copy such as “Campus Colloquy”

completely a student newspaper, comprised of student
contributions for copy. Luuem

Editor’s Note: Mrs. Lucille Vest Scott, a professor
at Salem College for 36 years, passed away August
21 following surgery at Forsyth Hospital in Winston-
Salem. Mrs. Scott was a 1930 graduate of Salem
College. She held the M.A. degree in French and
Spanish from the University of North Carolina—
Chapel Hill. She was appointed an instructor in the
modern language department in 1936. The following
is a tribute to Mrs. Scott written by one of her
What does one say in the wake of unexpected
death? The recent death of Lucile V. Scott was a
shock to ail who knew and loved her.
Mrs. Scott was a professor of the highest caliber.
She encouraged high goals of all her students and
was, herself, a fine example of one who was truly
devoted to her field.
“You give but little when you give of your
possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you
truly give”, writes Kahil Gibran in The Prophet.
Mrs. Scott gave kindness and understanding. She
radiated her affection for the Spanish language and
people, not only by sharing her knowledge and ex
perience in class, but even by inviting her students
into her home for festive Spanish cuisine.
Lucile V. Scott truly gave me so many intangible
aspects of herself that I shall always hold her
memory very carefully in my heart. I bow my head
in memory of a strong and gracious woman.
