SILVER AND BLUE -MV war -- phasize a college career. But red spots do not make the picture, nor do wild, bold stakes of action consti- tute the college career. Moderately and wisely have we tried to choose the colors and actions that count for lasting manhood and Womanhood. PROPI-IECY Strange things happen to us some- times and mysterious gifts are apt to fall into our hands just when we least expect them. It has been given to me as the chosen one of this great and good peaple-the class of 1930, to dream strange dreams and see strange visions of the years to be. Now I shall tell you what has been revealed to me by the powers that be: As I looked into the land of the future, I could see moving among the dim shadows of the people yet to be, the familiar shapes of those beings who were once my classmates, now changed and transformed into citi- zens of the world outside-even as they had longed hoped so to be. I could see our Presidentg even as today--I could see him in all his dig- nity, and his words were heeded then just as we today of the class of 1930 have heeded and attended to them. His ambition has always led him on- ward unil he was even the governor of this, his very own native state. Now I see the door of his home open be- fore my vision and there I found Myrt-whose highest ambition in all worldly vocaions had been realized- the maker and keeper of a home. Ah! thirty or forty years hence I see a rich man-a banker-riding in his airplane, counting out his money and wearing his diamonds. Who is he? Garland Bagley. Next I see inside a classroom of college students. A very handsome professor is lecturing to the class. The students all look at him with ad- miration of the learning he has acquired. They call him Professor J. T. Bagwell. Now I see two happy wives making sunshine and music within their walls. I see them exchanging confi- dences over the fence, as to this or that domestic difficulty--and also seeing that even in marriage they could not be separated-the Smith Sisters. Just now I happen to find myself inside a large cathedral where a stately priest in his robes of dignity poured forth words of inspired in- struction. It was Akins, himself, who had entered the work of the church The next was a very touching sight. I felt almost like crying when I saw a fair lady in such deep grief. Surely it must be some lonely widow mourning her husband. But to my surprise it was only a fair bride weeping the loss of her pet poodle! The bride was no one except Mary- better known to us as "Skeezix". As I looked again I could see among the society circles of that far off distant time, those who were most fair to look upon. As I gazed at those bright and dazzling figures, I recognized two of them to be the rival beauties of our own class-Ellen Bell and Edith Jarrell. James Smith has become a famous doctor, owning his own hospital at which Clyde Reynolds is dietician. Wallace Moody has become one of Georgiafs great poets. His "Love Page Twenty-one

--.7 4659 HISTORY Writing a Sophomore history is no easy task, can't see why they have such things, especially when we have so many to writeg so many nice things to sayg so many lies to tell. It would be better to put it off until later, then we would have more time to think of the many truthful state- ments that we could make about the class. To characterize our class in a few words would not be possibleg in many words impracticable, but in short it is easy to see the class was well ref presented in all activities. Sopho- mores won all scholarships at the college offered for highest general averages in work and studies. Track and baseball found Sophomores there. WILLIAM LEROY WALLIN . .

No word has such an insignificient position in the life of the college student as that of 'retrospectionh But at the end of our Junior College work there comes a time of general survey of our college life in which many activities stand in bold relief against the colorful background of our campus career. It is a glorious thing for a man to so model his life that it not only gains the affections of his fellows but also fuses into his surroundings at least a trace of himself. In our own small way we have made an attempt toward this end. Red spots emphasize a picture. Clashing ideas and daring deeds em- Eige Twenty

SILVER AND BLUE I6-P VB! - -..- Lyrics" are wonderful and they have been translated into several lang- uages. This large building I now see is a convent. I especially was attracted by a fair lady walking about the building, I was told that she had been disappointed in some love affair and had become a nun. Her face was quite familiar to me but they called her "Sister Maria". After a few minutes looking at her I remembered Alda Jones. Now I was led into a beautiful auditorium in New York City! Here I heard music from the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra. I was sur- prised to find that Leroy Wallin was director. Just the day before, I had learned that Hillias Martin was playing in a jazz orchestra in New York also! I wondered if I would find any more of my old classmates in this city. Then I picked up a newspaper and in it noticed that Arthur Smith and Lonnie Helton had become rich over night, speculating in call loans. Now I find myself in a mission school in India. Here was Maude, di- recting this school of girls. She taught the girls how to weave and sew. I remembered how well she used to enjoy her work at Sunshine weaving cottage. Maude told me all about her work and I learned that she had become so interested in this work that she had never married. I soon found myself in a great in- stitution of Home Economics and here was Frances Lane. She was do- ing great work in this institution. I remembered that she was interested in home economics but I expected her to apply it in a home. The next thing I remember seeing was in a great music conservatory in Cincinnati, Ohio. Here I found Moss Hackett. She told me about the many honors she had won as a soprano so- loist. If she continues she will soon be one of America's greatest singers. Moss has many admirers but she seems to be more interested in her career than she is in men. From behind the greasy counter of a small fish stand I saw a very fa- miliar man shouting "Fish!" with all his might-this was Jordan. As I looked into the professional circles, in a large office among many men sat a prosperous lawyer. I re- membered the sturdy face of Sproull. The next is a dining' room scene! A group of well dressed men and women were seated at the table. I saw the charming hostess to be Ruth Hackett. After a short' teaching ca- reer she had married. She and her husband are living in Macon, Georgia, where he is editor of the Macon Tele- graph. Evelyn Wyatt has pursued her lit- erary course and at last she has land- ed a job-dusting busts in Westmin- ster Abbey. V On account of domestic failures Mabel Dobson has become secretary to Hudgins and through her effici- ency and capability, he has become the king of the cod liver oil industry! Suddenly I find myself in Italy. Here I visited the Candle Memorial to Caruso and close by we saw what we believed to be a second tower of Pisa but upon investigation I was told that the Einstein of 1950-none other than our own "Speedy" Mac- Knight--had devised a plan and the American republic had used it as 2.
