It Happened
Last January
By Beth Fenters
Have you ever wanted to get
out of the classroom for a while
and gain some practical ex
perience in a job related to your
career interests? More than half
of the student body at Salem
explored job opportunities
through January internships or
independent studies last year,
according to Diaiuie Dailey.
“We have seen an increase in
internships because students
want to explore possible careers,
to find out whether they are
wasting time or not, and also for
the working experience,” Dailey
said. Of approximately 250 in
terns last year, only two or three
were unsuccessful, she said.
Internships and independent
studies differ in basic structure
and requirements, but both may
help the student to define or
enrich career plans. Internships
are specifically designed to give
the student pre-professional
experience, usually in the at
mosphere of a business or
professional organization.
Prospective interns are
responsible for contacting job
supervisors to arrange suitable
plans and goals for the month’s
work. They must find a faculty
sponsor and clear their programs
through the January term
requirements.
Independent studies are for
students who want to research
one particular area of interest,
orally involving library work.
Inese students may correlate
research with practical ex
perience, however.
Initial registration for January
term is Oct. 4, and many students
have decided by now on a par
ticular course, internship or
independent study. Those who
hfve not solidified their plans
should check the lengthy file of
past internship or independent
study programs, which is
available to all students in the
mean’s office. Most students who
we done internships are willing
0 fccuss the value of their ex
perience.

Iricluded: economics
fj working in brokerage
bant’. market firms or

teaching
sp' on elementary and
school levels; jour-
rennrt™ students working as
newSf ® and weekly
public
ons and business com
munications; and history and
political science students
working with Congress or Senate
officials. Also, several students
worked at N.C. Baptist or For
syth Hospital in areas such as
pathology, anesthesiology or
dietetics.
Internship possibilities are
virtually lirnitless, but students
must realize that they accept full
time job responsibility, both in
training and actual working
capacities. One January intern
from last year explained, “I
worked from 8-5, Monday
through Friday every week
during the month, but the ex
posure and expereince I received
changed my whole outlook on
future career plans. At least I
know what the job demands now,
and I can prepare for the future
during school instead of won
dering blindly what I will do after
graduation.”
Dailey emphasized that on-
campus programs and courses
should not be overlooked,
especially for freshmen. Staying
on campus for the first January
term may be a relaxing
educational experience and may
give students on campus an
opportunity to explore more
extracxxrricular activities.
Take Me
To Wake
Number 13 has become a lucky
one for college students needing
transportation between Salem
College and Wake Forest
University.
The Winston-Salem Transit
Authority, in response to a real
need and recognition of many
requests, has established a route
running from the North Carolina
School of the Arts and Salem
College area direct (no transfer!)
to Wake Forest and the Reynolda
Shopping Center.
Salem students boarding at the
comer of Academy and the
Salem Bypass ride busses
numbered 16 to their Wake
Forest destination and number 13
on the return trip. Bmce Abel of
the Transit Authority explains
that route 13 and 16 operate as an
“across-town pair,” eliminating
the need for transfer at the
Courthouse.
During rush hours a.m. ^d
p.m. the relatively new service
runs busses every half hour,
during mid-day every hour.
It will be a boon to not only
cross-registered students at the
two colleges but to many who live
and work in the areas served.
Mrs. Whitty Cuninggim, wife of
Salem’s president, was one of
those supporting the Transit
Authority in estabhshing the
route and says she is delighted
with their cooperation.

Jager-Jung Is ‘^Bach” at Salem
By Suzanne Eggleston
After a delay of 23 years, Maria
Jager-Jung is coming to the
United States for the first tiine.
She will be at Salem to present a
concert of the works of J.S. ^^I^
on the harpsichord Tuesday, Oct.
4, at 8:15 p.m. in Shirley
Auditorium. .... * t
In 1954 an American student ot
hers first mentioned an
American tour. The concert toi^
idea resurfaced again and
over the next twenty years, but
nothing definite was planned
until last year. At th^ tune,
Salem faculty member Margaret
S Mueller decided that she wo^d
have to plan the tour herself if it
was to be done at all. Accor
dingly, she wrote Professor
Jager-Jung, now 63, to set toe
date. Her reply was fiUed with
excellent reasons why Professor
Jager-Jung could not come: the
death of her husband, her ^e,
and more, but it concluded wto
the postscript, “When shall I
Who is Maria Jager-Jung? She
is a harpsichordist and organist
who has appeared in Germany
many times, often performmg on
Maria JagerJung
historical instruments. She has
taken part in the “Deutsches
Bachfest” in Gottingen and toe
“Frankfurter Bachstunde” with
Helmut Walcha, she has per
formed in chamber music en
sembles with Kurt Thornas,
Gunter Ramin, and Paul Hin
demith, and she has been
recorded for Deutsche Gram-
mophon-Archiv and Quadrigaton.
Professor Jager-Jung was one
of Helmut Walcha’s first
students, under whoin she
studied piano, organ, and han>
sichord; she also has studied
choral conducting with Kurt
Thomas. She holds degrees from
Dr. Hoch’s Conservatorium and
the Hochschule fur Musik and
Darstellende Kunst in Frankfurt
am Main, where she took
examinations for Private Music
Instructor and Organist-
Choirmaster. In 1943, Professor
Jager-Jung was awarded the
music prize for toe city of Frank
furt. She is a professor at Dr.
Hoch’s Conservatorium and at
the Hochschule fur Musik in
Frankfurt, the equivalent of
college in the United States,
where she is founder and director
of the “Studio fur Alte Musik.”
Through the years, Professor
Jager-Jung has taught 72
American students. Among these
students are Salem faculty
members Margaret Mueller,
Margaret Sandresky, and Dr.
John Mueller. She has a collec
tion of early keyboard in
struments comprised of a pedal
harpsichord, an early 19th
century piano, a Broadwood
piano much like Beethoven’s, and
two other harpsichords. While in
the United States, Professor
Jager-Jung will give nine con
certs at colleges and universities
where her former students are
now former members. Following
her performance at Salem, she
will go to Wayne University in
Detroit, Michigan; some other
concerts will be at the Univer
sities of Kentucky, Kansas, and
Iowa, and at Sweet Briar College.
The program will consist of a
partita, an English Suite, the C
Minor Fantasy, several preludes
and fugues from the Well-
Tempered Clavier, and several
sinfonias and two-part in
ventions. Professor Jager-Jung
will be playing the harpsichord
built especially for Salem by
William Dowd of Boston. Salem is
indeed fortunate to have her
come and all students are urged
to take advantage of the rare
opportunity to hear her play.
Another guest performance
will be an organ recital presented
by William Weaver of Atlanta,
Ga., Friday, Sept. 30, at 8:15 p.m.
in Shirley Auditorium. Weaver
gives six to ten concerts a year
and lists as other interests
weaving, Italian greyhounds, and
motorcycles.
