p.tzpatrick. editor savase. MANASERThe theme of this book always will be you, but the motif varies.
This year we have chosen to interpret you and your 1938 life at Asbury through the symbol of the tapestry weaver. To this day the best tapestries are woven on partly vertical hand-looms. The long warp threads are strung from movable cylinder rollers which are supported by the wood framework of the loom. The weaver always works on the back side of the tapestry. Here he has sketched the design on the warp threads. Then with painstaking care he works out the design. The weaver has above him the complete pattern so that he may weave with harmoniously blended colors. He can never see the real work from his place of toil, but has to step in front of the loom to see the actual progress of his effort. On the pages that follow the 1938 Asburian will attempt to interpret you
as you weave — weave your tapestry. On the loom of the college campus the warp is strung of the strong threads of EDUCATION and the colored pattern of His Life is reflected overhead with its color scheme of the deep purples and reds of RELIGION, the medium blues and greens of COOPERATION and the light, bright yellows of PLAY and WORK.of Mrs. H. C. Morrison
Asbury has been fortunate in having Mrs. H. C. Morrison for her friend. Dr. and Mrs. Morrison have worked together for the school and their labor has been fruitful. During her thirty-one years of service on the Pentecostal Herald Mrs. Morrison has made hosts of friends for Asbury as she sets forth the standards and ideals of the school through the medium of the paper. Her work with the Thanksgiving Offering has been an immeasurable contribution to the college. Many are the students for whom she has secured scholarships.
Scattered over the world there is an army of young people who love Mrs. Morrison. Why do we love her so? Because in her vital personality she possesses the secret of true youth; because she has been a source of deep inspiration and real help; because she has shown us what labor of love for the Master can mean; and—because she loves us. To her we dedicate our annual—the 1938 Asburian.As you hove deftly woven this year—weaving the woof of RELIGION, COOPERATION, PLAY and WORK, into the WARP of EDUCATION, there were moments when poignant pangs of incompleteness were felt. Sometimes it seemed as if little were being accomplished. Though the loom was well and strongly strung v ith the threads of Education, and though the unchanging, Perfect Pattern overhead challenged our best effort to imitate its beautiful, harmonious design, you possibly felt that your toil was not producing the desired progress on the design. But wait a moment — you were looking on the wrong side. These pages are committed to the sacred trust of showing you the other side—the right side of the tapestry—
complete for the 1937-1938 work on it. The warp threads, the foundation or framework of your life this year has been Education. Education . . . with its strong thread entwined from smaller threads of wise guidance, counsel and instruction from the faculty; well chosen curricula —lecture hours, laboratory experiments, library research and toilsome daily preparations.A Tomplo of Learning—sacred because its books opened our eyes to worlds of truth
MORRISON L1RRARYOur President
DR. HENRY CLAY MORRISON
Upon the life of a consecrated man God laid His hands, and found him yielded to His purpose. He was to carry on a work left unfinished: build a scholastic institution which could stand the acid tests of all time; which could serve as a foundation for the spiritual life of youth as well as the intellectual; which could be a beacon light, an inspiration, a stronghold for all who enter its hallowed walls. Genuine love and deep admiration wells up in our hearts for him who has not feared to lift and carry the cause of Asbury, who has given himself in radiating Him whom we strive to follow. He has listened to and answered the clear call of God and has seen and reflected the vision: to have Asbury keep step with God.
HENRY CLAY MORRISON D.D., LL.D.
President of Asbury College, 1915-25; President of Asbury Theological Seminary, 1926-; President of Asbury College, 1933-; General Evangelist, Methodist Episcopal Church, South; Editor of The Pentecostal Herald; Author. Dr. Morrison is a man whom we love and revere because of his impassioned ministry and Iris life of unselfish service for others.The Administration Building demands our rospoct, for here are housed tho offices of tho school— offices whoso ultimatums can chango the entire course of our educational careers.
ADMINISTRATION BUILDINGZACHARY TAYLOR JOHNSON, Ph.D.
"Never mortgage tomorrow with today’s burdens,” is Dr. Johnson’s secret of getting things done. Because he never puts off until tomorrow what he can do today he accomplishes an incredible amount of work. While busily engaged in his activities as Executive Vice-President and Business Manager—lie’s putting Asbury on a sound economic basis— he finds time to conduct evangelistic campaigns, contribute to religious periodicals, and write religious books.
Because of his remarkable business acumen we can say Asbury operates on a strictly cash basis. Dr. Johnson has reduced the school debt to such a degree that we expect it to be entirely cleared by June.
We have a man with tenacity of purpose and ability to prepare for the future because he is far-sighted. Dr. Johnson is a man with the power to accomplish much and he does it!
DR. FRED HALSEY LARABEE. B.D.. D.D.
Doan of Seminary
In the Dean of Seminary Asbury has a man peculiarly fit to show young theologians the way to win souls of men to the Kingdom of God. He is a man who believes that Christ should control every phase of life, and therefore, carries his deep spirituality into his classrooms. The Dean has further endeared himself to his students by his kindly and warm-hearted interest in their problems. His wise counsel and advice are sought when problems need solving. Dr. I.arabce exemplifies tire Christ he loves.
114 |The gracious dignity so befitting a college dean characterizes Dean Heston. When we have "dealings” with him he wins our confidence immediately with his quiet, kindly manner, and his eagerness to aid us in our difficulties and problems. His is a task requiring wisdom, efficiency, insight, and ability to understand the details of various problems and their solution.
Dean Heston radiates the One after whom he has patterned his life, and sets an example as an ideal Christian gentleman.
HUGHES AUDITORIUMThe Semi-Circle
The Semi-Circle is rich with varied memories. Around its walks on Sunday afternoons or after Artist Scries couples stroll, finding it no less beautiful in the Kentucky sunlight than it is at night when lighted by the lamps of the White Way. Under its shady trees we’ve sat, groups of us matching wit, solving world political problems, or lingered alone seeking knowledge from a book, cramming for examinations, or—perhaps rearing high towers, dreaming the dreams of youth.Lucy Adams, M.S.

Our hostesses are women of understanding, patience, and good counsel. We appreciate the help they have given us so freely.WOVEN
It’s peaceful here. The light sifts gently through The colored glass. How sweet the organ sounds. Must Be some student practicing for vespers. That lively Bunch outside just wouldn’t understand. I had to Slip away—for just a bit.
How strange you looked four years ago.
So strange and so imposing. I thought you stern . . .
And strict with Bible verses everywhere.
Foolish of me. You who arc so fine and strong.
I laughed at you—But that was four short years ago.
I had ambitions then. I was so sure—so confident Of life and most of all myself.
But that’s all changed. I’ve learned a lot of things from Books. But mostly things outside have counted more . . . Like Love and Pride, Sweet fellowship of daily commonplaces. And greater still that Fellowship Divine that I Found here.
I wish you knew just how I feel
Tonight. I don’t much care what others think.
You’ve woven friends and fun, hard work,
Ideals and love into one glorious whole.
I can’t begin to say just what it’s meant.
It’s getting late. I just want to breathe a prayer and
Then slip softly out again.
There go the chimes—no matter now . . .
How bright the campus lights shine out . . .
Around the world—strange how they blur so now.
Must be mist on my glasses. T T

PEGGY MOTT WALLY HARNED
May Queen Snow King
In electing Peggy and Wallace May Queen and Snow King, the students bestowed upon them the highest honor a Senior boy and girl can receive. Qualifications for either achievement are very high—pleasing personality and appearance, friendliness and popularity, scholarship, and other traits of leadership—in a word, all that goes to make a typical Asburian.
Four years! Long? They seem now to have flown by on wings of the wind. Remember them?
The first—your Freshman year. Mardelle Amstutz and Herbert Clin-gen, your sponsors, piloted you safely through many dangers, troubles, and joys. The kid party in the fall, the spring "hospital” party and then . . .
Sophomores! Fellowship renewed in an informal get-together, a Thanksgiving vesper service, and who could ever forget that formal party in the spring?
What a busy year the third one was. Don Falkenberg and Evelyn Lockard led off to a good start with the Junior-Freshman reception; a Pay Program in November; and the religious pageant at Easter. Then came the Gold Room of the Lafayette Hotel with a Junior-Senior banquet that spoke volumes for Evelyn’s ability.
And last, your fleeting Senior year. A fall get-together, a Christmas party in the parlor, Dickens’ "Christmas Carol,” Valentine party, Winter Carnival, May Day Festival, Senior Day, COMMENCEMENT—they sped by.
Though the passing of many years may serve to dim some memories, blending them into one pleasant whole, others stand out, unfading.

This Lucy Stonian’s well-rounded life includes membership in the Chorus for three years and the Student-Faculty Committee this year. Her dignified Christian character plus her diversified interests make her a typical Asburian and well deserving of the honor of Who’s Who in ’38.

Henry Clay enjoys his witty philosophy, and can always bank on him to contribute to their good times. The pioneer work of the missionary cause could have its ranks joined by no one more sincere nor better equipped than Jimmy.

Vitally interested in the Ministerial Association, he has added much to that group. Animated with a love for his fellowmen, a complete devotion to duty, and a staunch determination, Harry has won a host of friends, and we know his valuable characteristics will bring him through smiling.

George, his faithful wife and small daughter and son have lived quietly in our midst. He is kindness itself to this little family. A sociable neighbor and as true a friend as can be found. Steady, dutiful worker, to be commended for his courage and stick-to-itiveness. George is gifted with the ability to understand the workings of cogs and wheels and bolts—a natural born mechanic. However, when the Lord gave him a very definite call to the ministry, he forsook all and followed the lowly Nazarcne. We wish you and vour family the best in life, George.
JOSEPHINE LONG Florence, S. C.
We like Jo for her good nature and pep. When there’s a job to be done it would be diliicult, indeed, to find a more conscientious and efficient executor. Her personality has given harmony to the Student Volunteers for four years, Christian Service League, Chorus, Asburiak and Collegian Staffs, Spanish Club for three years as well as ('lass Treasurer in ’38. Jo is a devout Christian, relying much on the power of prayer. Full of vitality and a possessor of common sense this Lucy Stonian has added that sparkle to routine life which makes every day interesting.
Evelyn, a capable leader all through college, has expressed her well-balanced personality through diversified activities ranging from the cultural— French Club, Orchestra for three years, String Quartette in ’37, to the practical—Secretary of Sophomore Class, Vice-President of Junior Class, Secretary of Senior Class. She was so valuable to the Collegian in ’36 that the staff sought her assistance again in ’38. Friends and Philomathian sisters respect her opinions. A good manager, for her sense of values is practical. We know the I.ord has a responsible position in Africa for this consecrated missionary to fill.

Ruth, a gracious Southern lady, plans to be a missionary. Versatile interests are hers—Home Economics Club, International Relations, and Glee Club. This Lucy Stonian’s keen appreciation of drama and able portrayal of characters make her the accomplished reader that she is. When giving her testimony, you can always expect something up to the minute. Dependable—when Ruth is given a task to do, it will be done very efficiently. Sincere, earnest, charming—one would have a long, weary search before he found a more promising potential Student Volunteer.

George, an ardent, devout ministerial student, has been a member of that Association for three years, and of the Student Volunteers for two. Mission work has given this preacher practical experience in dealing with the realities of life. Endowed with a logical mind, George is a convincing speaker. He has lived off campus most of the time—it's our loss that we don’t know him better. Upon the first meeting, you may think him quiet, but you’ll later discover that he loves to argue and can add his bit to any conversation. Tire Lord has a definite place for just such men as George.

Congratulations, Lincoln, on having one of your number in the 1938 Who’s Who. To know Howard proves that brain is preferred above brawn. He strives to live a clear-cut Christian life, and lie's succeeding.
From the far South Mrs. Meigs came to us bringing in her unassuming way those qualities of determination and a willingness to help others.

Would that there were more like Margaret.WHO'S WHO
Created as a national institution for the recognition of worthy students, the 193S Who’s Who Among Students of American ['Diversities and Colleges is a publication which effectively brings worthy students into the foreground in the business and social world.
The yearly publication of this handbook purposes to serve “as an incentive for college students to get the most out of their college careers; as a means of compensation for what they have already done; as a recommendation to the business and social world; as a standard of measurement for membership comparable to agencies as Phi Beta Kappa and the Rhodes Scholarship Award.”
The sponsors list the following qualities upon which students are nominated: character, scholarship, leadership in high standard of politics, athletics, and other forms of extra-curricular activities, possibility of future usefulness to business and society.
This year tire Student Faculty Committee selected seven Asburians to represent this institution in the fourth volume of Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges: Arlene Ain-stutz, Vernelle Bowman, Mildred Conlon, Wallace Ilarned, Howard Matthews, Peggy Mott, and Wayne Clymcr. Brief biographies and sketches of the respective activities of these students will appear in the 1938 volume.
The class of 1939, sponsored by Roland Hudson and Elizabeth Shaw Gibson, and led by Mallary Fitzpatrick as president and Charlotte Blood as vice-president, began its college career with a great deal of activity. The first social event took place in the fall—a kid party. By spring we found we had left our childhood days behind us and made the fact known publicly by holding a formal prom. The Boys’ Gym was turned into the lawn of an old Southern Colonial Mansion.
Headed by Weldon Culver and Sammye Smith, we hurried through our Sophomore year. First there was a get-together on the campus, then a Halloween Party, then an informal party, and then—we were Juniors!
This year brought many privileges and responsibilities. In keeping with tradition, our president, Joe Phillips, and vice-president, Sammye Smith, planned a reception for the Class of 1941. We participated in many activities: the Junior Pay Program, the production of the Asburian, the Junior Senior Banquet, prayer meetings, broadcasts, debates, basketball tournaments, and of course, studies.
Standing at the threshold of our Senior year we’re looking eagerly and courageously toward the future—a future rich with new tasks to be accomplished, new goals to be won, new lessons to be learned, and rich with the promise of fuller, deeper life.
Initiative, thoroughness, tenacity of purpose, indisputable efficiency—these arc qualities that make Joe a leader—a real Junior President!

A s b ii r y H i li S e li o o ITwo years ago Bill Kuhen and Ruth Ziemer found that they had a rather presentable group of Freshmen to sponsor. With the help of our sponsors and our officers, Bill Arnett and Ruth Fall, we quickly became adjusted. Our first party was, of course, a kid party, but our second party was the high light of the year. The Girls’ Gym was transformed into a court room of a medieval castle—a picture so beautiful that it will hang on the sacred walls of memory. In athletics, toq, we proved ourselves by winning the trophy.
Thus with incredible rapidity our first year passed and we began our second year.
Our Sophomore year was very different from the Freshman year. We were looked upon as grown-up individuals who had a purpose in life. We found that life is a very serious business.
Upon selecting capable officers, Phil Hincrman and Mavis Lay-bourn, we became an organized group, welded together with bands of class spirit and loyalty. Having had a year’s experience, we were better able to meet our problems and difficulties intelligently. We took part in all the phases of college life, not failing to pay attention to the social phase as was evidenced by our unusual Valentine party.
The half-point of the race has been reached. We have completed two years; we have two years to complete. With strong hearts and clear vision we’re running—for the goal is in sight.
Because of his wide experience in work with young people, Phil has made a capable Sophomore President. Gen-uine, well-balanced, just in all his attitudes, he’s an As-burian leader that merits the respect we offer him so whole-heartedly.

On Registration Day of 1937 Asbury added to her student body a large number of Freshmen, cosmopolitan as usual. Our sponsors, Arlene Amstutz and Samuel Emerick, and our class leaders, Clarence Yates and Ruth Childers, initiated us into the intricate problem of becoming adjusted to college life. From the first we were well represented in every phase of extra-curricular activity, especially basketball, for the "Bulldogs” came thru with flying colors.
We’ll gather together, most of us, next September, and having lost most of our brilliant emerald color during the course of the summer, we’ll be adjusted and acclimated—real As-burians.

vve sfudy with core the pattern for our weaving, we see that if is the deep, rich colors that form the foundation of the picture. It is the background of purple and red with a little grey end black interwoven that gives depth to the picture, that makes the bright colors stand out. And even as the workman wisely weaves the deeper, richer colors into his picture, so into our life at Asbury has been woven the qualities of spiritual strength, and power that make our lives deep and rich in Christ. The real background of our personalities is Religion. The
breathless sweep of faith, the glance of trust, the quietness of peace have been steadily woven into our lives from day to day. The web of our life has grown firmer, more victorious, and joyful. Under the guiding hand of the Master Weaver our lives have felt that refining touch. And so from day to day each of us has worked from a Perfect Pattern,—the face of our Saviour.F A n LI L T Y

I 72 IThe purpose of Asbury Theological Seminary is to train young ministers and to send them forth Spirit-filled, preaching a vital and vigorous message of redemption to bring lost souls into fellowship with Christ. Under the guidance of men of God they learn the things of God. The Bible is not questioned, but is held to be the Word of God and the rule of life. The deity of Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit and conscious experiential salvation arc taught. Because of genuine scholarship and wide experience the faculty can give the student suggestions and principles for a practical ministry that will help to solve the problem that will face him in future years. There is instilled into him a passion for evangelism: evangelism that will better society by changing the heart life and by bringing lofty religious ideals. Therefore his preaching will build up a social life that transcends the mere mechanism of organization.
The training received is not one-sided, that is, with the emphasis only on the spiritual phase of life, but the physical, social and intellectual phases arc also stressed. A club has been formed to sponsor a Seminary spirit among the students. They have united to form a definite social group, providing a time of relaxation and recreational activity. Thus the Seminary endeavors to prepare young men for service in the fields that arc white and ready to harvest.

“God is no respecter of persons. He took one from the life outside the fold—one untalcntcd and incapable. But with the work of the Lord manifested in his heart he became usable. I love Jesus for the great and sacrificial work He performed for me at Calvary. I love Him sufficiently to give everything that I have to Him: my life and all its energy. Full time service in the work of winning souls is my privilege and earthly reward. Jchn 3:3."

“My six years spent in Asbury have truly been a period of marvelous blessing from the hand of God. Along with work and help from home, by hand of miracle, God has supplied much of my need out of an unseen treasury. Gifts from one dollar to two hundred have come from the Lord in answer to prayer, through friends. The Lord has saved, sanctified me and honored me with a call to the mission field. I can truly say that the greatest longing of my heart is to be a love-slave in the heart of Africa for my precious Saviour. I’m glad I know I’m a child of the King, and that my Heavenly Father cares for His own.”

“I am looking forward to an Evangelistic Ministry. These years spent at Asbury College and Seminary have deepened my religious life, and have given to me an ardor for His work. As I leave Asbury, I Iravc a two-fold certainty which is corroborated by the Word of God. First, I am certain of my experience of conversion and sanctification. Secondly, I am certain of my call to preach and my message. By His grace I will carry the Gospel message wherever He leads me. Seeing the need in the world today, it challenges me to give my all to the ministry to which He has called me.”
DELBERT FLOYD Sturgis, Kv.
Church Membership: Methodist, North “Early in my life there was a consciousness of God and thoughts about eternity. This led to an early conversion. It was not until I reached the age of 16 that a deep, abiding experience came into my heart. Sanctifying grace brought firmer establishment. His call was, ‘Preach the preaching tliat I bid thee.’ (Jonah 3:2). Later, missions were included, ‘Prcaclr the gospel in regions beyond you.’ (II Cor. 10:16). I11 answer to my question,
‘Where?’ came the answer, ‘Preach . . . not where Christ was named.’

“As a farmer boy in North Alabama feeding swine, I was deeply convicted of my sins. As a prodigal I repented and found the blessing of forgiveness. This I have never doubted for it has remained vital and real. As a college student in Iowa the need of sanctification was clearly presented to me. I hungered, consecrated, and received, and felt so clean. As a seminary student in Kentucky, He has kept me. Doors have opened and every need has been fully met. Saved in Alabama, sanctified in Iowa, kept in Kentucky, I leave with appreciation to Asbury and faith and love to God.”

“‘Hitherto hath the Lord helped me,’ and I shall trust Him for the future, knowing that ‘What He hath promised, He is able also to perform.’ Jesus reclaimed me at the age of 16 and I experienced the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit when a Sophomore in college. Since then I have had constant ‘access into that grace wherein I stand.' I came to Asbury College to prepare for the work to which the Lord has called me. His presence has been with me every step of the way, sanctifying every circumstance of my life to my good and His glory. And now I must preach the Gospel to others in the same measure that I have received it.

‘‘I rejoice today over the fact that when a small boy the Spirit convicted me of my sin and the Lord gave me a wonderful experience in Him as a response to my childish faith. I also rejoice over the rest of faith and the determination of purpose that came to me in March, 1931, when I surrendered my all to the Ix rd and He called me into His ministry. Since then He has guided me at the crossroads, added strength in my weaknesses, and ‘supplied all my needs according to His riches in glory.’ This moment He is all the world to me, my life, my joy, my all.”

“As I face the future I am glad that Christ is the Captain of my soul. With my life fully surrendered to Him, I need not fear the clutclr of circumstance. For, taking the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, ‘I can do all things through Christ which strengthened! me.’ When Moody heard it said that the world had yet to see what God could do with a man fully surrendered to Him, lie purposed with his whole heart to furnish the man. I, too, am fully determined to do the same, God helping me.”

“It was while attending a camp meeting that I came to see my sinful condition and the necessity of surrendering myself to Christ and accepting the atonement which lie provided for the forgiveness of my sins. Two years later the Holy Spirit came into my heart and life in His abiding presence and power. My heart wells up in praise and adoration for my Savior and the many blessings He has bestowed upon me. I feel the Lord has called me to preach and teach a gospel of ‘full salvation for all men, from all sin.’ 1 plan to spend my life in service for Him in Latin America.”

“At the age of 15, as a heart-broken sinner, I found the Lord as a personal Savior. While walking with Him I found the need of something which I did not have. When the doctrine of Holiness of heart was preached to me I saw that that was just what my heart craved. I sought and found the Lord in His sanctifying power. This brought to my mind my great need for further education. During my first year in Asbury Academy I heard and answered the call to preach. I joined the Kentucky Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1927. I have found the Lord a real working partner. The Lord Jesus is my personal Saviour and the Holy Spirit abides. He is my living guide.

“I thank God for Jesus Christ and His full salvation from the guilt and power of all sin. I praise Him for the Holy Spirit who has helped me to find God’s plan for mv life. Since God has seen fit to allow me to be put in trust with the Gospel I intend to preach it where the harvest is ripest and the laborers arc few. I trust that God will open the way for a ministry among the unevangelized of Africa or India.”

"Jesus Christ is my Savior, my Lord, and my King.
I rejoice because I have found in Him One who has lifted me out of sin and put within my heart an earnest desire and determination, through His grace, to be like Him in every aspect of my life.
The Lord has called me to His service on the foreign mission field, and I long to be there fulfilling His purpose for my life. But in these days of preparation, as well as later, I want, through my lips and through my life, to proclaim the good news of salvation.”

"To seek the things of Christ, to obey, trust and serve Him and walk worthy of Him—indeed—to be completely the Lord’s for time and eternity is the one purpose of my life. I am profoundly grateful to God that I am able to say wit hall certainty, I have no doubts about a conscious experience with God, about the Bible as the inspired Word of God, about the Deity of our Lord, about the work of the Holy Spirit in my life, or about my call to the ministry. My task for life is to give the story of Jesus to a needy world.
What a privilege"!

“I am finding God’s plan for my life. 1 discovered at an early age that my plans were not His. Finding only defeat in my ways—I accepted His—and found ‘The pearl of great price’—purchased on Calvary. My heart desires to share it with others. I offer Him as a salvation to a problem conscious world.”

“Because of a Christian home and a Christian environment I was led into a Christian experience while still a small child. A few years later the Holy Spirit graciously sanctified me. Since then God has been the ruling power of my life. While still in grade school God definitely called me into His service. Thus there has been only one purpose in my life, that of serving God wherever I can be of the most use to Him. My motto in following God is—'Behold to obey is better than to sacrifice.’ ”Ml HOLERS AND JUNIORS

[81J“I charge thee therefore be-’ fore God, and the Lord Jesus Christ,—preach the word ; be instant in season, out of season ; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.”
JluMstxj, MoAe AJuAMxJlcvnthf
The principles for which Asbury was founded and which have been so firmly woven into the life of our school arc still the center of activity on our campus. All the wealth of physical and intellectual training possible is of little value unless the Christian motive of service to one’s fellow men is the dominating, ruling passion of one’s life. And so like a canvas touched by the Master’s brush our personalities have developed ever toward nobler ends, toward higher heights and toward more abundant living. Whether in the stillness of an hour of devotion or in the noisy crowd at a street meeting we have felt the compelling power, the victorious peace of our Master. In living abundantly we have discovered the joy of salvation is as real to a prisoner in the jail, a child in a school of correction or a discouraged mother at some mission as it is to the most privileged one on our campus. Like an unfolding picture, our college days have been made rich and complete in fun, work, and service. We have discovered the importance of poise, stability, integrity, and above all Christ. We arc ready and willing to give ourselves in heroic living and abundant service to that One who said, "I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”
Over 200 young men in high school, college and seminary arc banded together with common purpose—better fitting themselves for both present and future service in the Master's work. Their organization is known as the Ministerial Association.
Their meetings held at six each Friday evening throughout the year are varied in nature. They consist of evangelistic messages and round-table discussions, with an occasional opportunity for student preaching with criticism.
However, the activity of the Association is not confined to the one hour's gathering during the week. They work in street meetings, in missions in surrounding communities, and in gospel team meetings.
Rich blessings have they received in serving others and laboring for the Lord while schooling for life work.
MINISTERIAL ASSOCIATION"Christian Service”—the very name denotes the purpose of this organization, which strives to instruct its members in the many phases of a vital Christian life. Truly the League has an unusual responsibility in enriching the daily life of each girl. This worthy aim has been the guiding star for the cabinet in planning the weekly Friday night meetings.
Students and visitors, who have vitalizing and thought-provoking messages, are invited to speak to the group, but if the girls fail to utilize this knowledge in the giving of Christian Service, all efforts are in vain. Personal work in boys’ and girls’ reformatories, calls in needy homes, and room-to-room visitations in the dormitory arc surely evidences that the Leaguers arc striving to walk in the steps of the Master.
Mrs. Hodgin, the sponsor, who has spent years of Service in telling the glad story at home and abroad, wisely advises and guides the less experienced. This returned missionary’s life has been an inspiration to all who know her. An unfaltering faith, a deep consecration and a practical philosophy have encouraged the girls to press up and ever upward.
The president, Ruth Hayes, has efficiently led this band of workers through a praiseworthy year. She very devotedly felt the responsibility of her position and it is the testimony of many girls that it was her personal interest in them that led them to a closer walk with Christ.
The Christian Service League will continue to bless just as long as its every activity is guided by Jesus’s words, "As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; so neither can ye, except ye abide in me.”
CHRISTIAN SERVICE LEAGUE • • •
[84)• • STUDENT VOLUNTEERS
"Pray—Give—Go.” Couched in this command lies the purpose and work of the Asbury Student Volunteer Union. Daily they pray for the darkened lands which have not heard of Christ, whose life is the light of men. Many missionaries on the field have been definitely encouraged because of the knowledge of these prayers behind them. Frequently missionaries send in requests for prayer. For example, this from one letter—"We arc faced with a great need which we would like to place on the hearts of our Asbury praying partners. So many messengers come to the mission begging for someone to tell them the story of salvation in their village that it brings heavy crosses to us to have to constantly turn a deaf ear. We ask you to unite in praying that a God-implanted call may come to 500 Spirit-filled young men of our tribe.” And another—"It is wonderful to feel the support in prayer of such a consecrated group. It was indeed kind of the Volunteers to remember our needs in such a liberal manner. It is deeply appreciated and shall be directed as God directs.” And again—"Please continue to remember us in prayer and rest assured we count upon them more than we can tell you.”
Each year the Union raises money through pledges made by the student body and faculty of the college. This year pledges exceeded $1,800. Every cent of this amount reached the field.
Those who felt a definite call, as well as those interested in the work, made up the enrollment of over one hundred members, laboring here and now to help bring Christ’s kingdom on earth.
0RRIS0N LIBRARYMORRISON LIBRARY
Believing firmly in the great truth that "as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also,” a large number of Asbury students have found a real blessing in endeavoring to share through mission work their knowledge of the Good News. A real concern for lost souls impels them to go out in small groups each Sunday to tell what Christ has meant to them and what He can do for anyone who will surrender all and follow Him. Not all have churches in which to hold their services; in some places they meet in school-houses, storerooms, or in homes. The work consists of teaching Sunday School classes, visiting in the homes, and holding evangelistic services.
Efforts of the mission workers have borne fruit, for many needy hearts have found soul satisfaction in coming to know Christ. "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”
I 86 I• • MOUNTAIN
To support the Kentucky Holiness Mountain Mission work is the purpose of the Mountain Missionary Society at Asbury. The members of this organization meet for a half hour each Wednesday morning throughout the year to pray for the work in neglected mountain regions. For two hundred years many of these mountain people have been denied the privilege of hearing the full gospel message, and under the influence of false doctrines and ignorance of the Word they have gone with hungry, unsatisfied hearts. Prayers in their behalf are being definitely answered, and gradually the light of salvation from all sin is spreading and catching fire in the hearts of the Kentucky mountain people.
Gifts donated by the student body at the White Christmas chapel service were sent to Mount Carmel, a material expression of Asbury’s interest in Mountain Mission work.THE MORNING CORPS
R A I) I 0
"Good morning, friends. This is the Radio Devotional League, sponsored by Asbury College and Asbury Theological Seminary, in Wilmorc, Kentucky.” Morning after morning faithful listeners wait eagerly for these words to begin a half hour of worship with us. We feel that the Radio Devotional League is a unique organization on the college campus. It seems to be the tangible tic between the countless numbers who arc the members of the Asbury family. It is dedicated to the glory of God, the promotion of His kingdom, and service for mankind.
The League endeavors to encourage the establishment of the family altar in the home, to reach those who could not possibly hear the Gospel by any other means, to carry a message of cheer and encouragement to each heart; to help start the day right and to revive the singing of the grand old hymns of the church.
Many outstanding and nationally known speakers have given messages of vital truth. Dr. E. Stanley Jones, who spent several days here prior to his return to India last year, Dr. H. C. Morrison, Dr. J. C. McPhcctcrs, Dr. P. B. Smith, Dr. M. B. Stokes, Bishop Wascom Pickett, Dr. S. H. Martin, Rev. Alexander Reid, Dr. Harold Paul Sloan, and others. Appreciation is attested by the hundreds of letters from listeners telling how important the League program is to them. Each Saturday morning, through the cooperation and under the auspices of the Kentucky Sunday School Lesson Association, the discussion of the International Sunday School Lesson for the following morning is presented by well-known and qualified men and women who arc teachers of Sunday school and Bible classes in various churches in and around the vicinity of Louisville.
I ss IDEVOTIONAL r n
Its activities include not only the radio program each week-day morning, but also the sending out of musical organizations each weekend to cities where they further carry on their mission. These groups arc wholly consecrated, fully yielded to their work and ministry.
We arc particularly grateful to the management of Radio Station WHAS in Louisville for only through their courtesy and generosity are we able to render this service.
The radio work has been blessed of the Lord, for God works through the League and its "unseen audience” for the upbuilding of His kingdom.

The object of the Student-Faculty Committee is to act as a unifying force, bringing the institution as a whole into more vital contact with problems relating to the student body.

Joseph Phillips, assisted by Marjorie Stotlar and L. G. Sapp, was appointed to arrange programs for the Social Calendar. We feel that these people have been most capable. We appreciate the work of this committee—the sacrifice of their time and energy in providing for us wholesome, enjoyable, and profitable Saturday evenings.
Mr. Gerald Case, formerly a member of the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra and at present our instructor in violin, appeared in a violin recital October 23 in Hughes Auditorium.
The Senior Pageant, a presentation of ''Scrooge,” will long be remembered by all of us. It was interesting to note the change from the cruel, miserly old fellow to one beloved by his small nephew.
The most outstanding feature of the A. A. U. W. Program were the beautiful, flowing, pastel gowns worn by the ladies representing the fair maidens of historical literature. Each character emerged from the spruce background and gracefully made her way to the platform, where beside the Grecian pillars, she brought to light scenes of long ago.
"A Twilight Phantasy” was presented by the Junior Class, sponsored by Joseph Phillips, class president. Beneath arched windows in the glow of tall candles in their stately candelabras, each singer took his place and sang as though he felt himself in the atmosphere of the created cathedral.
This year we have been most fortunate in securing for our Artist Series Programs men and women of real talent in the music world as well as in the field of elocution. These programs have provided an element of culture necessary for a well-rounded college life.
We appreciate the unusually fine type of programs made possible by the Artist Series Committee, the class organizations and the appointed Social Committee.

This year through long hard hours of practice and under the able direction of Mr. Gerald Case, the performances of the band have been very superior.
The band was well received in nearby towns where they made appearances in occasional concerts. The basketball games were made far more enjoyable by the music furnished by Mr. Case and those under his direction.

Among the most enjoyable hours at Asbury this year were those spent attending Artist Series programs. They will never be forgotten, because they have become a vital part of our lives. The Artist Series Committee, composed of three Seniors, two Juniors, and one Sophomore, offered an unusually fine calendar of programs. Among the artists were such outstanding musicians as Marcel Dupre, the world’s greatest French organist; the White Hussars, American symphonic ensemble; Wilbur Evans, popular baritone, and Rosemarie Brancato, brilliant young coloratura. The Bell Ringers, Barton Rees Pogue, and Ben Ames added to the splendid and exceptionally different variety of performances.

The forty members of the Asbury College Orchestra gathered at 7:00 o’clock each Thursday evening for an hour of practice under the leadership of Gerald Case. That their many hours of rehearsal were profitably spent is attested by the highly commendable character of their performances. Included in their repertoire were such numbers as Haydn’s "Symphonic Militaire”; "Iphigenia in Aulis,” by Christopher von Gluck; Albert Ketelby’s "In a Persian Market”; and "Finlandia,” by Jan Sibelius. They have made several appearances during the year, giving concerts on the campus and at Nicholasville.
The Asbury String Quartet has been very popular on the campus and elsewhere. Besides giving performances alone, they have added variety to concerts given by the Orchestra. Their selections included a number of the Mozart quartets, with, in addition, shorter favorites such as "Moment Musicale,” "Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes,” and "Old Black Joe.”

CHOIUIS AND QUARTETS
Every Friday evening at 7:00 o’clock a group of about 175 students gather in the choir loft of Hughes Auditorium. After devotions led by the chaplain, Miss Ada B. Cartel! mounts the director’s stand, and the As-bury College Chorus begins another practice period. The organization is composed of the Men’s and Women’s Glee Clubs, with the addition of any other students who wish to help in the musical program of the college. The Chorus participated in seasonal programs and meetings throughout the year. "The Messiah,” by Handel, was sung December 12 before an appreciative audience and was broadcast December 14. The rest of the year was spent in preparing "The Holy City,” a sacred cantata by Alfred K. Gaul, for presentation at Commencement. The capable leadership of Miss Carroll joined with the cooperation of the singers made possible performances superior not only in structural and technical qualities but also in portrayal of mood and thought.
MALE QUARTETSWhen thirty-four young men joined their voices in song for the first public performance of the year, in chapel on December 11, their listeners were sure of the fact that the Men’s Glee Club was in line for an unusually successful season. This belief has proved to be well-founded, for the Club was one of the best in recent years. Included in the membership were the Ambassador Quartet and Radio Quartet.
These men purpose to glorify the living Christ in song and testimony by presenting the best in sacred and classical music in the best possible manner. Their repertoire included: "The Crusaders,” Prothcroc; "On the Sea,” Buck; "Jcsu, Joy of Man’s Desiring,” Bach; "When Earth’s Last Picture Is Painted,” MEREDITH smith Bornschcin, and "Lead Kindly Light,” Dykes. One of the high
points in the year’s concerts was the broadcast from Louisville March 13 over a nation-wide hookup. The spring tour of ten days beginning March 17 was decidedly successful.
That they render a real service to the school is evidenced by results of their concerts. Many students have decided to make Asbury their Alma Mater after having come in contact with this splendid representation of our college and seminary, the Asbury College Men’s Glee Club.
MEN'S GLEE CLUB
[ 100]WOMEN'S GLEE CLUB
It is 7:15 o’clock Monday evening. Thirty-nine girls gather in a studio in the basement of Glide Hall. Hearts arc united for a short period of devotions led by the Chaplain. A few minutes later someone up on third floor Glide happens to be leaning out of a window and hears sweet strains mounting to her ears. "Say, roommate, that must be the Women’s Glee Club down there practicing. Isn’t that a pretty song? I wonder what the name of it is.” It might be any one of several sacred or secular numbers: "Angel of Light Lead On,” Van-dcrpool; "O Lord, Remember Me,” Roma; "Hail, Thou Star Resplendent,” Grieg; "God Shall Wipe Away All Tears,” Roma; "Thou Wilt Keep Him in Perfect Peace,” Gaul; "Vesper Hymn,” Beethoven; "The Lord My Guide Will Surely Be,” Bach; "Rock of Ages,” Robinson; "Crying Water,” Hamblen, or "The Miller’s Wooing,” Faning. Under Miss Carroll’s leadership the girls are inspired to sing with expressive interpretation. The concerts given both on and off the campus were deeply enjoyed. Their weekly Friday morning broadcasts were a blessing to thousands of people in many states.
To provide for the large number of applicants for membership this year, a Freshman Glee Club was formed under the leadership of Miss Eleanor Reeves. They trained for membership in the college group later on.
Assuredly, with hearts and voices lifted, our singers have made a "joyful noise unto the Lord.”
EI.EiANOR REEVES Pm idemTHE ART CLUB • • •
The courses offered in the Art Department are so varied as to be attractive to students preparing for all vocations. Art history awakens appreciation and interpretation of great works of art and enriches a general cultural background. Craftwork provides opportunity for students who are interested in practical handwork. Chalf talks train those interested in using chalk as a medium of expression with secular or religious lectures.
Classes in charcoal and pencil drawing instruct the young artist in line and form. The more advanced work in pastels, oils, and pen and ink is given by individual instruction. Originality and self-expression arc the keynote of the art department.
Under Mr. Russell’s excellent instruction and thoughtful guidance, the Art

In every company, at every fireside, one is struck with the riches of nature, when he hears so many tones, all musical, sees in each person original manners which have a proper and peculiar charm, and reads new expressions of face. He perceives that nature lias laid for each the foundations of a divine building if the soul will build thereon.” — Emerson.

I’ 113]The Campus Club is a non-restrictivc organization, open to all students, founded for the purpose of promoting Christian fellowship and social recreation. Striving to impress upon the members the truly Asburian spirit, the Club has chosen the school colors, purple and white, and the school seal as its emblem. One unique feature is that it is the only social club on the campus having its membership a mixed group. The motto, "Christian living and Christian fellowship,” denotes the ideal toward which the Campus Club strives.

BIG SISTEBS CLUB
Big sisters may sometimes be a trial to those who arc fortunate enough to possess them, but Asbury Big Sisters do not fall within that category. Realizing the fact that a person may feel very much alone in spite of being in the midst of a large group of folk, the girls in the upper classes at Asbury have formed a Big Sister Club. Many difficult and perplexing problems face the new girls as they enter college life here, but it is a true comfort to know that they may seek helpful counsel and advice from someone who knows them and who is at home at Asbury.
By writing friendly letters of introduction during the summer, the Junior and Senior girls began to get acquainted with those who had been assigned to them as their Little Sisters. Early in the fall the Club had a weincr roast and campfire service at High Bridge Park. After exploring the valley and then climbing the steps again to watch the train as it thundered over the bridge we returned to the campfire. Remember what a time we had trying to balance the paper plate with potato chips and pickles and an apple that persisted in rolling, and at the same time roast weiners and marshmallows over the glowing fire?
Later, when fun had been set aside and we stood on that dark hillside, high above the world, there was a hushed and holy stillness as we lifted our hearts to Him who is our God, our Savior, our Elder Brother. Vc came back to the dormitory feeling that the experience had deepened our life and had drawn us closer to each other because we were drawn closer to Him.
n ■There is no surer indication of Asbury’s far-reaching influence than the number of students from other countries who come to Asbury for education that is distinctly Christian. The Club’s membership consists of children of missionaries and natives of many foreign countries. Among the countries represented arc Africa, China, Hungary, Korea, India, Japan, the Philippines, Hawaii, England, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, and the Canal Zone. It is not surprising to find that many of the foreign students feel the inner urge to return home as witnesses to the Good News in Christ.
The purpose of the Club is to provide group fellowship and to promote greater understanding and better appreciation of the various races and nations. This is not difficult since such a variety of national and cultural background is found at Asbury. Also, the Club is of value to those students who face the problem of adjustment to this strange, foreign land.
On various occasions the foreign students made a more public contribution to the life of Asbury in the form of chapel programs and radio broadcasts. Julia Winn, Tommy Winn, Faith Stewart, James Baker, Pio Daba, Jerry Case, and Miss Stanhope made up the Missionary Band who gave the missionary challenge to many surrounding church congregations.

The Scribblers Club is a purely literary organization. It was started for the purpose of encouraging creative writing on the part of Asbury students and to provide a clearinghouse for those students who make attempts at writing poetry, short stories, various types of essays or, in fact, any kind of original work.
A piece of work presented to the organization is read before the group, and then the meeting is thrown open for criticism of the selection. Someone usually volunteers to tell what his general impression of the literary effort is. The criticism from this point on may go in almost any direction, but the ordinary procedure is for the group to offer more specific suggestions. Perhaps a certain line does not fit into the general plan of the poem; there may be some particular weakness of one of the characters in a short story, or in the way the plot is handled. The suggestions may present an idea which the author could use to advantage, and he is given an opportunity to re-write any part of the selection and have it criticized again if he wishes.
Some of the material submitted to the group has been very interesting and has shown beyond a doubt that there is a place for such an organization on the campus of Asbury. It is the hope of the club that the interest of students in this type of activity may be stimulated during their college careers so that they may gain something that will be of lasting pleasure and benefit to them, and perhaps as a result someone will reach a degree of proficiency that will win recognition for him.
The Scribblers feel that the type of work they endeavor to encourage contributes to the cultural growth of those who participate in its activities and, therefore, adds something worth while to the extra-curricula program of the school.The Adams Home Economics Club, since its organization in February, 1934, has purposed to promote interest in the field of Home Economics; to foster higher standards and ideals of womanhood and home life; to develop personality, leadership, self-reliance, initiative, social poise and professional interest. All girls who major or minor in Home Economics are members of the Club and any girl taking work in the department is eligible for membership.
The bi-monthly meetings were cultural, practical and entertaining. Papers and discussions on the different phases of home life were presented by members of the Club. Often guest speakers, prominent in the field of Home Economics, were secured. Occasionally the meeting was devoted to an enjoyable time of recreation.
The general public was privileged to view the results of the year’s work in the department at the annual Home Economics exhibit which was shown during the Commencement season.
The Club is affiliated with the National Home Economics Association and the Kentucky Home Economics Association. Each year representatives arc sent to the spring meetings of the latter organizations, at which time exhibits of the Club work for the year are displayed and reports on various topics are made. This year the Kentucky Home Economic Association elected an Asbury Home Economics Club member as State Secretary, Miss Sammye Smith.
The officers for the year were:

• • KENYON
A group of young men and women who arc preparing to answer the call for Christian doctors, nurses, and medical missionaries gathered each Thursday evening during the year to discuss topics of common interest. Among the speakers who gave valuable, practical information and advice were professors and visiting physicians and psychologists. Occasionally members of the Club gave research reports on various subjects of vital interest. In order to gain first-hand information they also visited hospitals, asylums, institutes, and medical schools.
Membership is open to college students interested in any phase of medicine. About twenty members have actively participated in the Club this year. Several members arc preparing to enter medical missionary service. Professor Kenyon, for whom the Club was named, acted as faculty adviser and his contribution was felt in all of the year’s activity.
Social functions included a banquet, parties, and special table in the dining hall. Altogether their associations and activities provided them with information and inspiration which rendered them more capable of serving others in their chosen field.

If anyone is inclined to doubt the fact that it is also a busy one, let him step into the reference, periodical, or reserve room almost any evening and discover every available chair occupied and every niche filled with studious Asburians.
Miss Shehan, the librarian, labored tirelessly in instructing and helping students in the use of informational and recreational materials in the library. The staff, numbering 28 student helpers were eager to assist others. The nature of their work varied, consisting of desk duty for many, secretarial work, ordering new books, cataloging, circulation work, compiling statistics, mending and binding books and magazines, and caring for reserve books and periodicals. Imagine trying to keep track of over 18,000 books! Last year about 1,560 reserve books were used 36,683 times; and all other books were checked out 17,151 times, making a total circulation for the year of 53,834.
However, it was not all work and no play. Little treats throughout the year created an atmosphere of fun and fellowship. Old-member Pals cheered the hearts of new members with little unexpected treats for a week at the beginning of the year; everyone helped to make the Thanksgiving waffle breakfast a success; Christmas Pal Week was exciting at times; and the spring breakfast hike afforded welcome recreation. Working together, learning together, serving together, playing together —all this made library work worth while.
t 120]INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUE
On the walls of the Carnegie Endowment offices in New York City hangs a map of the United States. Each of the twelve sections into which this map is divided is dotted with red pins, each pin representing an International Relations Club. The Club here at Asbury is one of 772 similar clubs throughout the world.
The International Relations Clubs arc groups of students organized under the auspices of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, in universities, colleges, and normal schools, for the study and discussion of international affairs. The purpose of the Endowment in undertaking this work is to instruct and to enlighten public opinion. This, in a limited way, is the aim and purpose of the International Relations Club on this campus.
Membership in the Club is open to all students who are majoring or minoring in history and to all Seminarians, who as future ministers should be interested in international relations and be useful in the fight for lasting peace.
The activities of the Club were unusually interesting for the year. The regular meetings for members only, held every three weeks, featured general discussions, book reports and similar programs. Open meetings offered lectures by visiting speakers and educational films.
In November the cabinet members represented Asbury in the Ohio Valley Regional District Conference at Toledo, Ohio.
The Club endeavors to make a definite contribution to the intellectual life of the campus.Handel's

Students have taken a keen interest in forensic activities at Asbury and have rightly considered them to be of importance, for the training received therein has been of inestimable value to the participants. Development of the ability to think clearly and logically on one’s feet, to speak convincingly and with smoothness, and to rise on occasion in effective defense of a principle—all these are among the desirable characteristics fostered in debating.
This is the one activity in which Asbury feels the spirit of intercollegiate competition. Last year at the Midwest Tournament at Manchester, Indiana, Asbury was one of the few schools boasting an undefeated team. To produce such results required many hours of investigation and practice—hours which all the squad members agreed were very profitably spent.
In addition to touring and radio debating, the squad entertained visiting teams from various colleges and universities. Friendly competition prevailing at these forensic frays was experienced by the numbers of students at large attending these meetings.
Under the capable coaching of Wayne Clymer, member of last year’s varsity squad, the prediction and hope of more honors for Asbury in this field is well-founded.

The keynote to the success of any annual is cooperation. The staff has been exceedingly fortunate this year in having the unselfish cooperation of both faculty and students. We wish to express our appreciation to those who have helped each in his own way to make the 1938 Asburian a reality.
To Mr. John T. Benson of the Benson Printing Company is due especial credit for his energy, zeal, and willingness to lend a helping hand at all times. The staff is indebteded to contributions from Mr. Harold Mann, of the Jahn and Ollier Engraving Company, for his invaluable advice and characteristic cheerfulness; Mr. Fred Spicth, of the Spieth Studio, for his kindness and outstanding photographic work; Dr. Puntncy, head of the English Department, for his careful proofreading. The following students have helped materially: Dorothy Kuhn, Dorothy Amstutz, Scholten Jones, "Chic” Johnson, and Bernard Fagan. Thanks for your unselfish service.
If anything has been omitted that should have been included, if anything appears in this book which you do not like, we regret it and ask the pardon of all who are offended. Through a blunder we omitted Miss Nina Stanton’s picture from the panel of Philomathia Debating Club.
No Editor or Business Manager has ever had a more dependable or more cooperative staff than the staff of the 1938 Asburian. Each has given his best that these pages might fully and adequately interpret you.

So many things have come to make our picture bright. A rich, gay scarlet thread of play has dared to creep and weave itself among the rest, entwined with smaller yellow threads. The picture dares to flaunt itself before the somberness of toil. A snatch of play—the flashing of a feathered shaft, the cheer for well-made baskets, the rippling rhythm of the trained muscles on the track, the breathless timing of tumbles on the mat, the joyful bouncing of small white ping pong balls; such
things as these have made the hours glad. The thrill of catching a swiftly flying ball, the satisfaction of having played the game, the winning of a letter, all these have combined into a pattern without which our tapestry would not be complete..vrATHLETIC
ARTHUR K. HENDERSON. A.B. Athletic Director
"Art" combines inimitable athletic powers with keen executive ability. He well deserves his popularity as Athletic Director.
In order to have some organization in the recreational phase of college life, Asbury has an active Athletic Association. Since our program is confined to intramural sports it is necessary for the association to plan a program which will satisfy the natural desire for competition and at the same time give students an opportunity to express class spirit and loyalty.
When this plan was first inaugurated it was much less restrictive as to qualifications for a "letter” than it is now. Students had no
difficulty in gaining letters in a number of sports. Under the present arrangement, which requires versatility and star performance in more than one sport, the wearers of the “A’s” are athletes of which the association and Asbury can be justly proud.
The association furnishes recreation for the students and also teaches them the fundamentals of the games so they in turn can pass on their knowledge to others.
The Staff is made up of students with athletic and teaching ability who can serve as coaches of the various classes. The Managers’ Committee makes schedules, oversees games and matches, makes rules and bylaws, and helps plan athletic programs.

At the outset of this season the prospects were bright for a well-rounded race for the championship. The first team to deviate from the path laid out by pre-season dopesters was the highly rated Seminarians. As the race opened up they made such an impressive showing that it was doubtful whether or not there was another team on the campus who could halt their polished offense. Soon, however, it was proved that the "Preachers” were not invincible as some of the stronger teams began taking their measure. To add to their despair their star center, Sully Nelson, failed to return the second quarter.
The Seniors, though underdogs from the start, never did click effectively. They usually played a good brand of ball for the first quarter and then individual began to take the place of their former team work.

The Sophomores were rated along with the Seminarians as being stiff competition for anyone on their schedule. After the Seminarians handed the Freshmen their first defeat the Sophomores came along and took the measure of the "Preachers” to put themselves on a par with the "grccnics” in the race. Their well-timed, smooth-working, passing game was their most effective weapon.
The Juniors were not given much chance of seriously threatening the championship in pre-season predictions and were not guilty of upsetting the dope. At times they exhibited a brand of ball that is characteristic of the championship caliber, and then in another instant, they would slum off into a "ragged” performance that eventually culminated into an individual drive for stardom.

The Freshman Class always has an array of stars to choose from to compose their team. This year was no exception. Their offense, paced by Gibson, was remarkably well-timed, and the accuracy with which Riley hit the basket was usually too much for their opponents.
All good players—all good, clean sports—the Freshmen were "top-notchers” in the Asbury Basketball Tournament.

The girls at Asbury are not content to sit idly by and watch the boys do all the playing. In fact the women have tournaments in various sports just as the men do. It happens that basketball is their favorite sport, also. The Women’s Basketball Tournament is a high light on the recreation program for those girls who arc athletic minded. This tournament is played by teams representing the classes and the high school team.
At the beginning of the season it was predicted that the Seniors would have quite a formidable aggregation of seasoned players who have seen plenty of service under fire. This group of girls, paced by the brilliant play of Buddy Cole, lived up to their recommendations when they won the championship.JUNIOR
The Juniors lost some of the players they had depended on most in past years and so were handicapped from the start. They played some close-decision games that would have counted heavily had they reversed the score board reading.
In the Sophomore ranks we find some excellent material for a basketball team, that had they ever all clicked together, would have been hard to stop. They played hard, individually, but never could work as a unit.
The Freshman team was composed of a set of "lasses” who had an indomitable will to win. They boasted a superb passing game but were weak on sinking shots once they got in range.
Shouts of victory, praise of good sportsmanship, die away as the curtain falls on another year of tournament play in basketball. Some arc victors, all are happy.

COACH LOVELACEON THE MAT
Asburians interested in "Monkey Business?” Of course they are. Tumbling and mat exercises afford excellent opportunities for physical development. They arc like new brooms for sweeping the cobwebs out of students’ brains, too. Under the direction of Art and Bill Henderson the men’s gym classes learn to tumble and to perform various stunts on the mats. Several of the students have mastered ring stunts. The more adept they are in this art, the less they come in contact with the mats. Co-ordination and bodily control come with practice and after frequent "tumbles.” The men who are interested in this type of recreation are given an opportunity to increase their skill and to exhibit their ability, for they are often called upon to perform before the student body, especially between the halves of basketball games.
In the spring Asbury’s "rubber men” and the Kentucky University tumblers thrill hundreds of spectators with their stunts in the annual "Phyzz-Ed” Circus. Monkey Business? Yes, but very well worth while.An unusual amount of interest has been shown in Archery this year. The classes were filled to capacity with prospective Robin Hoods and many old students, experienced archers, enrolled to keep in practice.
The Archery Class learns the fundamentals of the sport such as stance, how to hold the bow and the way to aim at the target. The correct "slant” of a shot is also taught to avoid breaking arrows.
Jim McFarland acted as the instructor of this class. His unusual skill and knowledge makes class work interesting to those who arc interested in this type of sport.
In the spring, when interests arc keen in such things, the class puts on several excellent exhibitions. Tournament competition served to increase the skill of all those Robin Hoods and each was a better archer at the end of the year.
Not only is Mr. McFarland skilled in instructing others in the art of hitting the bull’s eye, but his own accuracy has held the interest of several tournament audiences.
The Archers seemingly have great fun playing a game called "Indian Warfare,” although no Indians are needed nor are the "warriors” hostile in their fighting. A good clean sport—enjoyed by all.

When students begin coming in for the fall quarter they unpack their tennis equipment the first thing—when school is out they are still on the courts. No other game is played so much as tennis at Asbury. The fall tennis tournament is open to any student who wants to enter. The play-off last fall was very eventful. Charles Stokes won the men’s singles, his second year straight. Those who go down in defeat in the fall can always look forward to the spring when they will have the opportunity to enter the spring tournament and try again. Because of the season, the spring tournament is filled with a superior brand of tennis. These tournaments arc open in both singles and doubles for men and women. Tennis is a game for genuine sportsmanship and at least half the students here participate actively in it.

Last May plans were made for a recreation hall—changing the Girls’ Gymnasium into a room of beauty as well as of utility. During the summer a new concrete floor was laid, basketball goals and old lights removed and new ones lowered to provide better lighting. The shiny modern metal chairs were a colorful addition to the room.
During the Christmas holidays further improvements were made which will greatly add to its efficiency. The walls were given two coats of enamel, tables, shelves and drawers were added. Besides the new double apron sink, an up-to-the-minute electric stove was thoughtfully donated by Dr. Johnson. The hall will now comfortably accommodate fifty people for an evening’s entertainment.
A small sum of money was donated by the student body, supplemented by generous gifts from Dr. Cross, Miss Gorsuch, Dr. Johnson and Mr. Cary.
Not only is it enjoyed by clubs and other campus organizations, but also furnishes a place of relaxation and social enjoyment for smaller groups.
Ping-pong, shuffle board, darts, checkers and dominoes furnish a variety of amusements sufficient to satisfy the most exacting.
I 138 JWINNERS
In the past, qualifying requirements for a "letter” have been too lax. Awards lose their value to those who really merit them when they are given out promiscuously to all who make an attempt to win one. At the beginning of this term the Athletic Association took steps to put the requirements on a higher level. This year in order to win a letter, an athlete must be versatile and able to cope with an aggressive group of competitors in each field. Heretofore the members of a championship team were qualified to receive a "letter” when some three or four of them bore the brunt of the attack.
The plan this year gives a certain number of points for winners in each event, thus making it imperative that those who get awards must be winners in some phase of sportdom at Asbury.

The quality of our material grows deeper and of a sturdier fiber. The tapestry is rapidly taking a more finished form. As the weaver works into his picture the stronger, brighter threads, so into our picture of college life have also been woven the threads of work and toilsome labor. Not work with its hopelessness, but a labor inspired by determination, ambition, and love—o work that becomes pleasure because it is done as unto a Father not as unto a tyrant. Whether peeling potatoes, sweeping floors or shoveling
coal, our task has been done with the love and joy of service. Our lives have been made more complete because of work. These little things — the daily tasks, the weary hours, have made our lives more full of appreciative zeal as we labor for the Master.MR. CRISWELL'S ASSISTANTS

DINING HALL AND KITCHEN CHEWS
How we do appreciate these folks! Going to college gives one an appetite and the cook, the waiter, the butcher, the baker have faithfully and cheerfully appeased our hunger. Every efficient crew must have capable foremen, or as in this case "forewomen.” Mrs. Oliver very ably supervises all the intricate operations that take place in the kitchen, while Mrs. Lannom directs the waiters in their duties and is our sweet, obliging "mother” in the Dining Hall. Judging from the song that comes from this particular section of the campus, these industrial workers are a happy crew. Washing dishes and making salads are not so bad after all. Lasting friendships are made, and there arc pleasant memories of hours spent in the long, low building located at the center of things. A fitting climax to a year’s work together is the annual picnic in the spring.
i 144 :The business of running a college is far more complicated than many imagine. There is the Dean’s Office where you go when you’ve taken too many cuts, the Registrar’s Office when you want to drop that stiff course. That inevitable bill is paid at the Business Office, while the Radio Office has many letters to write and programs to arrange. Then, too, each teacher needs the assistance of a secretary, especially around finals time.
The College provides employment for students by using their assistance in the several offices. It’s valuable experience for young folks, since they learn many practical lessons along with academics. Returning alumni often tell us that the training they received in their industrial work has proven a most valuable asset in post-graduation days.
We arc glad that Asbury is a school that offers opportunities for college people to develop well-rounded lives. Industrial jobs play their part in teaching us to work with our hands and our heads. Outside of the faculty and administrative officers, there arc very few full-time employees. Down through the years the College has developed a very efficient system of student industrial work. This system has proved to be of mutual benefit to both school and students. Many Asburians have been able to complete their four years of college through assistance offered by Student Industrial Work.
OFFICE WORKERSASIUIRY COLLEGE FARM
Under the administration of Dr. Johnson, together with Mr. H. W. Criswell, who is the College farm supervisor, Asbury has launched a farm program that is proving beneficial, in a financial way, to the college and students alike. Since the addition of ninety-one and one-half acres of land, purchased with a part of the Talbott Endowment Fund, Asbury has a farm that is big enough to be a real help in running the College Dining Hall. Counting both pasture land and the land in cultivation, Asbury owns two hundred twenty-three and one-half acres.
At present the college has twenty-six head of cattle and thirty-nine hogs. These two herds supply all the meat for the dining hall.
The poultry farm comes nearer meeting the demands for its products than any of the other divisions. At present there are about two hundred laying hens and seven hundred fryers.
A move is being made now to enlarge the college dairy. At present they only have six dairy cows. When present plans become realities this number will be increased to fifty. It is estimated that a herd of this size will furnish the college with all the milk and butter it needs.
By way of this work boys arc enabled to work their way through school and at the same time give vent to their bubbling enthusiasm that naturally accompanies the great outdoors and farm life.
The Yarbroughs, and their assistants, have proved themselves invaluable in their faithful work on the farm. We apnrcciate them—especially for the times when those chick-Asbury High School is accredited, having obtained membership in the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, and is rated Kentucky grade "A.” It has a singular history, in that its predecessor, the Bethel Academy, was the second church school in America, having been founded in 1790 by Bishop Francis Asbury.

During the past ten years approximately eighty-five per cent of the graduates of Asbury High School entered Asbury College and made commendable records. Forty per cent of all the Asbury High School alumni arc engaged in definite Christian service.
Because of access of the students to the life of the college, Asbury High School offers opportunities for personal development which arc seldom found in similar educational institutions.

Asbury High School is unique in that it has a two-fold purpose—that of training boys and girls of high school age under wholesome influences in a Christian environment and in welcoming to the school older students who have been delayed in their education and who need a helpful, sympathetic attitude and atmosphere in which to readjust themselves.
The second purpose, which is of no less importance, grew out of a demand made by the Education Department of the College to provide an opportunity for all seniors desiring to go into the teaching field to do practice teaching under careful supervision. Both college and high school students have profited by this arrangement. College students who do practice teaching find in their supervisors kind and helpful advice and suggestions which enable them to develop rapidly and naturally without the disadvantages of the "trial and error” method. About twenty-two girls and four boys were engaged in doing supervised teaching this year.
Because of a varied curriculum, access to the college library, to college lecture courses and to the social life of the larger institution, Asbury High School offers opportunities for development rarely found in similar educational institutions. In purpose, vision, aspiration and in the support of Christian ideals, Asbury College and Asbury High School arc one.

HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES
High school days—work, play, fun, laughter, decisions, heartaches, tears—future determining days. Full, fast flying days of happy, light-hearted joy—high school days.
For the first time in years Asbury High School now has two competitive, mixed clubs, the Spartans and Adelphians. Everyone knows that Spartan signifies heroic bravery and athletic prowess, while Adclphian signifies brotherhood and wisdom. The Spartan and Adelphian clubs are sponsored by Miss Morrison and Miss Taylor, respectively.
At the beginning of this school year, the High School pupils were divided into two equal groups or clubs for the purpose of developing a higher social life in the school. Both clubs have participated in interesting chapels, picnics, and sports. There has been such a keen spirit of athletic rivalry that even Miss Morrison was willing to suffer a bruised nose for the cause of her basketball team. Better yet, Professor Kintncr and Miss Taylor very graciously consented to compete in a race over the rocks. In football the Spartans successfully defended their title, but in basketball the society of wisdom overcame.

HIGH SC H 00L CLUBS- • • •
I 152](Continued from Page 151)
An interesting incident of the first semester was the joint Christmas program. The big feature, of course, was Santa Claus. It seems that Santa’s characteristic stomach very strangely consisted of sweaters, jackets, and the like. And, believe it or not, when Santa was addressing the children, an arm fell and hung dangling from his waist. After several violent attempts to hide the embarrassing object from sight, jolly old Saint Nick lost his temper, and, reaching under his cloak, he jerked out a sweater and banged it into a corner. Yes, it amused the children.
For the second semester the clubs studied dramatics, and thus developed the mental phase of club life, as well as the spiritual and physical.
Both Spartans and Adelphians are worthy of praise for the fine cooperative spirit shown within the clubs.
HIGH SCHOOL CHORUS
An unusually fine chorus of thirty-three voices has been organized this year by Mrs. Russell Lenox. Along with the enthusiasm and dogged patience, real talent has been shown by many of the members.
The chorus meets once a week in the basement of Morrison Hall, as some of the roomers in the same building can doubtless testify. The music consists entirely of church hymns, most of which arc appropriate for the High School broadcasting programs.
From the chorus, has been chosen a mixed quartette consisting of Olive Johnson, soprano; Thelma Douglas, alto; David Scamonds, tenor; James White, bass.
A successful and profitable year was enjoyed by all members.GIRLS' TEAM

AND THEN THEY GREW III
SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
Bless me! It has been so long since 1938. It’s really funny to think of Dave Scamonds as a white-haired, benevolent old missionary babbling away to a group of little Indians. And just the other day I heard Rev. James White, D.D., preach a very inspiring sermon over HASH, the nation’s greatest station. Rev. Bailey seems to have an unusually magnetic personality in spite of his colored glasses. Perhaps Peggy is the reason. Well, bless my aching bones! Mary Stacy just married her fourth husband. He had courage after what happened to the other three. She always wanted to be a housewife but I didn’t expect her to do such a thorough job. Dr. Nysewander, Ph.D., is broadcasting the plan for the latest government project, and he announces that Mr. Warren Criswell is one of the engineers. My how those boys arc bringing up our decaying civilization. The Revs. Morgan and Moore arc doing their best to help put the old U. S. on her feet again. As though teaching in Columbia University isn’t enough, Dr. Reynolds, Ph.D., LL.D., is doing architect work as a sideline. Oh dear, they can’t all be successful! Mr. Daniel Long, great commercial farmer, went into bankruptcy a month ago, and naturally he lost his mind and had to be sent to the hospital. His wife and secretary, the former Phylbert McEwen, suffered from a broken heart. The twin sister, Phyllis, is one of the greatest soul winners in Africa, and for once, the Negroes have a chance in life. Let’s see! David Crouse started life as a promising mechanic, but the poor boy married Edna Martin, airplane hostess, who was employed in the nursery and kitchen for so long he never got over it. Ha! Yes, there’s one more,—Lyman Yarncll. Si, Scnor, he’s a Spanish professor in Japan. Those easterners like our white teachers. Bless them all! They were such happy children.Finale • • •
. . . and so from month to month, the shuttle of our progress has sped back and forth, guided by the faithful hands and consecrated hearts of our professors. The dominant thread of our tapestry has been Spirituality. It has lent unity and symmetry to the whole. Because of it we have rejoiced in our achievements and accomplishments; we have profited by our failures. The quality of our fabric we leave to the decision of those who have watched the weaving and those who examine its intricate details; the future threads of our tapestry we leave to the divine hand of God, our Master Weaver.

DOESN’T MAKE ECONOMIC SENSE, BUT
It is a curious paradox that as government boosts taxes on electrical utilities on the one hand, it is with the other building subsidized tax-free competitive plants of its own and encouraging, through loans and gifts, the construction of subsidized tax-free municipal plants.
No private business could long remain, solvent and adopt a deliberate policy of destroying its best payable customers.
The public should realize the great stake they have in this vital problem—a cash stake amounting to about 15 per cent of the entire gross income of private electric companies which will have to be paid by the people in additional taxes on themselves if private utilities’ earnings are destroyed.
