SILVER AND BLUE tml Life is full of joy and sorrow, Work and hope for a bright to- morrow. Through the clouds the sun is shin- ins, 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 lot. For friends gone but always dear Memory sends her warmest tears! She sheds gladness o'er the past, Recalled by faded flowers that do not last. 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 Class," 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 Mater." 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 more, We hope to all clasp hands, And pass our friendly greetings around, As in the days gone by. "M "7 -- -A- .LMW We love thy classrooms, and play- grounds, Our teachers everyoneg The bright and sunny skies above thee, 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 well. We can but leave a parting tearg For those who've been to us so dear, And on our memories foremost line, Write names that will forever shine. Farewell! may the pleasures we en- joy today, Never be clouded along life's rug- ged way. It is certain that evil will give us a call, But may we have the courage to withstand it all. May our fidelity to principle be a light That will pierce the encircling night, May it mark the trail our Saviour trod, And lead us safely home to God. Knowledge doesn't amount to any- thingg it is achievement that is impor- tant.--Henry Ford. Expect no miracles-trust your common sense. Page Twenty-six

SILVER AND BLUE MM - IN 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- signed witnesses: Guthrie Spruill Mr. Mullins George Collier Bertha Boone ,1 POEM 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 way. New friendships formed and book- lore learned, For education our minds have yearned. We've labored, studied, and played hard too, 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 May. Buds are bursting, leaves are grow- ing, 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 find Stored up as diamonds in the rough, Germs that are made from solid stuff. Things that we hammer, melt, and mould, Into the very depts of the soul Where they take root and quickly grow, Like the seed that farmers sow. We have before our minds a goal, Though on some high and rugged knollg If we work that way with a good will, I'm sure we can climb the highest hill. We'll plant our Hag upon te top, And have for our motto "never stop," But keep on climbing every day, And never give up beside the way. Spring with hope, youth, and glad- ness 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 wideg 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- ter. Earthly joys and sensual lust, In the end become as dust. l9age TRHQTEVF

SALUTATORY 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 world." Many times in our lives have come when everything seemed dark and disheartening. We have learned the meaning of disappointment and sor- SILVER AND BLUE VM - ON 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 Page Twenty-seven
