SILVER AND BLUE
Life is full of joy and sorrow,
Work and hope for a bright to-
Through the clouds the sun is shin-
In every cloud a silver lining.
In our memories friends will be,
Time can only help us to see,
That you are dearer than we thought,
That your friendship has meant a
For friends gone but always dear
Memory sends her warmest tears!
She sheds gladness o'er the past,
Recalled by faded flowers that do
In the corridors of time,
Voices gay as yours or mine,
Sound like echos of the past,
Would that they could only last.
Before I Write the closing line,
I'd like to say it just one time,
I think the Sophomore class is fine.
So I must close this simple rhyme.
Here's to the "Dear Old Sophomore
The one we love so well,
To every earnest lad and lass,
Our story we will often tell.
Here's to our "Dear Old Alma
As swiftly the years roll byg
We hope to all come back to thee
Once more before we die.
Here on this same old ground once
We hope to all clasp hands,
And pass our friendly greetings
As in the days gone by.
"M "7 -- -A- .LMW
We love thy classrooms, and play-
Our teachers everyoneg
The bright and sunny skies above
The friends that we have won.
And as the seasons come and go,
Our thoughts will always be hereg
We want you all to know
Our Alma Mater still is dear.
Friends and classmates, teachers too,
We shall often think of you.
Our cold words can never tell
Our love, our thanks, our wishes
We can but leave a parting tearg
For those who've been to us so
And on our memories foremost line,
Write names that will forever
Farewell! may the pleasures we en-
Never be clouded along life's rug-
It is certain that evil will give us a
But may we have the courage to
withstand it all.
May our fidelity to principle be a
That will pierce the encircling
May it mark the trail our Saviour
And lead us safely home to God.
Knowledge doesn't amount to any-
thingg it is achievement that is impor-

provided Sophie will use it to a better
advantage than she has.
We do hereby constitute and ap-
point Miss Dexter sole executor of
our last will and testament on this,
the sixth day of May, Anno Domini,
one thousand, nine hundred and
thirty, in the presence of the under-
Guthrie Spruill Mr. Mullins
George Collier Bertha Boone
Our class has surely had some fun,
As every sophomore class has done,
But work must always follow play,
As night must always follow day.
Two years or more ago today,
We turned our steps this happy
New friendships formed and book-
For education our minds have
We've labored, studied, and played
But soon we'll start our work anew,
For as you know from this very day
We face the world in every way.
Spring is here and summer's coming,
Hand in hand with the flowery
Buds are bursting, leaves are grow-
We are reaping, others are sowing.
And as they sow along the way,
The seed of human kindness,
They are building lives that shine,
--Shine with heavenly brightness.
Explore the dark depts of the mind,
And see what treasures there we
Stored up as diamonds in the rough,
Germs that are made from solid
Things that we hammer, melt, and
Into the very depts of the soul
Where they take root and quickly
Like the seed that farmers sow.
We have before our minds a goal,
Though on some high and rugged
If we work that way with a good
I'm sure we can climb the highest
We'll plant our Hag upon te top,
And have for our motto "never
But keep on climbing every day,
And never give up beside the way.
Spring with hope, youth, and glad-
Bears away our care and sadness,
Tears that fade in sunny smiles,
In nature's various turns and wiles.
Joy in our hearts and joy outside,
Joy spread on hill and country
Changes are slow but sure and staid,
For all God's plans are truly laid.
Life is short and trials are bitter,
All is not gold that seems to glit-
Earthly joys and sensual lust,
In the end become as dust.

Miss Berry, Faculty, Students, and
Friends, I deem it a signal honor to
greet you, and in the name of all my
classmates to pass on to you the glad
hail of our enthusiastic welcome!
We have reached t'he goal for
which we have been striving for two
long, yet seemingly short years. We
must cast away our college privileges
and pleasures only to hold them in
our memories and take up the great-
er burden that besets us as we leave
the college so dear to us to venture
into the great unknown. But as
Browning assures us happy,
"God's in His heaveng
All's right with the world,"
and his optimism wakes a responsive
chord in every heart. We are glad
we have the assurance that the
world-aye, every atom-moves on
its course in perfect accordance with
t'he plan of the Creator, and what-
ever comes to us either of happiness
or pain comes as an angle of the
Lord to work His will, and play its
part in the grand plan of human de-
velopment. We are glad that noth-
ing in the universe is too small to
be seen by t'he protecting and con-
trolling eye of the One who, as Pope
so beautifully tells us,
"Sees with equal eye, as God of all,
A hero perish or a sparrow fall,
Atoms or systems into ruin hurled,
And now a bubble burst, and now a
Many times in our lives have come
when everything seemed dark and
disheartening. We have learned the
meaning of disappointment and sor-

row to some degree at least-from
the human standpoint, thd have seen
times when it was hard for us to
feel perfectly sure that We could
agree with Browning when he wrote
the cheering words "All's right With
the world." We must learn that it
is necessary for us to bear our cross
and undergo many disappointments
to reach the perfection of character
we all so earnestly desire to attain,
and know that,
"Behind a frowning providence,
He hides a smiling face."
It is grand to feel that we are a
necessary part of the devine plan of
creation-that God holds our desti-
nies in the hallow of His hand, and
shapes our paths according to His
all-wise, all-powerful conception.
When we grasp this great truth, we
will understand how it is that no
matter what' comes to us as indivi-
duals, or as a class still while
"God's in His heaven,
All'5 right with the world."
Yes, friends, "a1l's right with the
world!" We who are about to take
our places in the great arena of its
progression, are glad to assure you
so. "All's right with the world,"
and all's right with us as individuals.
Our calling is a sacred one, what-
ever it may be. Our path is a safe
one wherever it may lead. And as
we go forth to represent in the out-
side world the school from which we
pass we are going to ever strive to
be true to its principles, aims, and
ideals-for it is through them that
all honor must reflect back upon the
school seal we bear. As we look back
over the past two years we can
truthfully say we have done our best
