their new locution, finding Salem's
streets, beautiful homes and gardens a
source of genuine inspiration.
Mrs. Talbot is a member of a well
known southern fuiiury and received
her education in an exclusive girls'
school in Louisville, Kentucky. She is
a charming example of the woman of
the southland, cultured, intellectual und
gracious, with ideas and standards hap
pily combining those of the old fash
ioned and modern woman. Taking a
sincere personal interest in young peo
ple and their activities, she will un
doubtedly endear herself to the stu
dents of the university. She is an ar
dent advocate of sororities and frater
nities and mny possibly lend her assist
ance in inaugurating them in Salem's
historical institution, as suggestions to
that end were considered last year.
