There is so much one would like to write, but words do not always tell what we feel. I want to express to each of you my heartfelt thanks for your ready co-operation and happy loyalty in the days that have passed and again to call your attention to the verse of John Oxenham: "But to every man there openeth A way, and ways, and a way, And the high soul climbs the high way And the low soul gropes the lowg And in between, on the misty flats, The rest drift to and fro.

We are now at the thresh- hold with our hand stretched forth to receive the coveted prize. There were some one hundred fresh- men to enter the Freshman class of nineteen-twenty eight. By a process more or less, the survival of the fittest, we graduated thirty-six from the Sophomore class in thirty C'30J. The college was only a Junior College then. Then it was announced that senior work had been added to the curri- culum. All of us were happy at the announcement. Nineteen remained to take further work toward our degrees. Then a check-up on the final lapse we find eighteen of the one hundred freshmen now seniors. The road we have traveled has by no means been a path of roses. How often we have burned midnight oil and find the morrow greeting us with long monotonous classes. Many a time we had rather slept than go to a bore- some class, but-we did go. Occas- ionaly to sleep-even after all this we have gained the honor of the name, Seniors: envied by Juniorsg respected by Sophomores, and looked upon with awe by Freshmen. Yet we love to think over the past years and tell of our freshman ex- periences-as, and with freshmen. We have had our part of the unpleasant ones-yes our share but those pleasant ones overshadow the afore mentioned by far. We have been called "pioneers". Rightfully so too, because we being the first Senior class had to clear the trail. We are proud of our name be- cause it takes courage and confidence to explore regions untouched before. In every phase of life you can find our class well represented. Not one member has failed to show his or her leadership ability by being placed in some responsible ofiice of the various campus clubs. Nine members are in the Honor Club, an organization to encourage academic achievementsg five in the "X" Club, an organization for those having shown exceptional leadership ability, five have won the John J. Eagan Scholarship for highest average in scholastic workg we have musicians in choir and orchestrag and represen- tatives in basketball, baseball and track. We are happy to be seniors and feel we have contributed much more service this year than in our former years. So on the whole, our class, though not an extraordinary one, is up to the average. We are small in number, but have offered a hand will- ing to push forward into regions un- explored and open up the way for those following. We realize we have made great progress and have made a good start in life. Let us remember, all are expecting great things of us as "pioneers," and so shape our future courses as to bring honor and credit to the first class and much more honor to our Alma Mater. ' ' No Can Opener for Him The farmer grumbles, groans, and growls, Yet I call him a lucky man- The eats placed on his table Did not come from a can. Page Fourteen SILVER AND BLUE PROPHECY "The present still is echo of the past: Of both, the future will an echo be". There are among us many indi- vidualities, many different futures to be worked out along many different lines, it is impossible that any two among you should have the same destiny, and yet each one desires the same ultimate result-success. Whe- ther you will have it or not, remains with yourselves. For four years you have been earnest, sincere seekers after new truths, gain- ing strength and power, physically and mentally, forming beautiful lasting friendships with the great minds of literature, and above all, a broader, sweeter sympathy towards all of the world. Have you gained anything of value for yourselves? What are you going to do with it? Cherish it? You are going forth to give of your store to those who lack. Those of you who have sincerely adopted the principles taught here, who have truly entered into the spirit of this institution are going forth to work-to sincere, earnest service to all who need you. You will not be discouraged if the world does not rush to you, demanding what you have. Neither will you sit quietly down and let the world wonder and then seek youg but you will be aggressive, you will carry your truths to people and cause them to see them so clearly that they must accept them. As you go out from this college you will not drop those principles and ideals which you have adopted so en- thusiastically here, nor let them slip from you by contact with the world, IN, but you will continue to live them as faithfully as when under the inspira- tion of our college itselfg for the world measures you not by what you say, but by what you are. This is the future that I read from your past. You have learned how to think, to work, and to live, but the end is not yet. You will continue to be students in your study of life's larger book as you go forth as helpers and teachers. Teachers-some in the ordinary sense of the word, others as agri- culturists, others as lawyers, or per- haps doctors, while some will carry the same spirit into the more sacred circle, the home. You will go forth with your best to serve the world, and as the world sees the service, it will acknowledge you and assume your success. Be true to your principles, be true to your- selves: "And it must follow as the night the day Thou canst not then be false to any man". Class of 1932, you will be true, true in the greatest, true in the least, and in the Great Tomorrow which we are to help make-may God bless us, everyone. When a bit of sunshine hits ye, After passing of a cloud, When a fit of laughter gets ye, And ye'r spine is feeling proud, Don't forget to up and fling it, At a soul that's feeling blue, For the minute that you sling it It's a boomerang to you. Page Fifteen SILVER AND BLUE VN POEM The fleeting years as back we look Have been but few and brief, But light they've shed on darksome spots To bring us calm relief. That inmost urge that summoned us To treasures then unknown We bid to tarry with us still And steer us on and on. Companionships-most treasured gifts 'These we can ne'er forget, But time has come for us to part With our sincere regret, Though times will change and friends will part ' We'll cherish to the end Fond dreams of our dear Alma Mater And hope to meet again. Our ray of hope will sometimes gleam And sometimes seem to fade, But looking back we'll e're recall The true example laid, And then we'll toil with cheerful heart, Undaunted by a care, To fan this fading flame to life And doubts will disappear. The coming years will, too, be brief Just as the ones now passed But richest memories will blend To calm all stormy blasts. Let us then bear this hopeful thought Forever in our mind- That somehow if we strive with faith We'll reach the heights sublime. Information is the most valuable item in all the world-if you know how to use it. SALUTATORY Miss Berry, Faculty, Students, and Friends: It is my great pleasure and privilege to greet you in the name of the first class that has ever passed from this Senior College. And in the name of all my classmates I pass on to you the glad hail of our enthusiastic welcome. We wonder if you realize just how proud we are of this privilege of welcoming you to the first simple ceremonies as the first class. We are so small in number that we might feel more humble than we do, did we not realize the place we are to hold in the history of this college through the years that are to come. Classes will come and go, boys and girls in large numbers will go forth from this college with all the pride of a finished graduateg men and women in years to come will look back with fond reminis- cences to the days of school life with- in these wallsg but there will never be another class like this in the history of the college. We alone can be the first. Do you blame us, that we value this distinction that sets our small class supreme over all the classes yet to come and go? It is quite possible that never again will so small, and apparently insignificant a class go forth from this college. It may also be quite possible, though we naturally shrink from the thought, that the classes to come after us may be far wiser and more brilliant than we have with all our efforts been able to reach, and so attain greater heights than those which we have so persistently Page Sixteen SILVER AND BLUE on and faithfully endeavored to climb. They may be larger, wiser, better, and more attractive from the worldls point of view, but they can never by any possible chance be the first. That honor will always belong to us. We are pioneers of this Senior Col- lege. We have blazed the trail that others are to follow. The future classes will claim the right to look to us as an example. They will watch our course in life, our failures and suc- cesses, and depend upon us for the in- spiration and encouragement that the younger always demands from the older on the battlefields of life. At last we have reached the goal we have been striving to reach for many years. We have looked forward to the time when we would receive our degrees. Now that time has come and we must cast away our privileges and pleasures of school-only to hold them in our memories as we take up the greater burdens that beset us as we venture into the great unknown. But Browning assures us happily: "God's in His heaven, Al1's right with the world." It is with that assurance we go forth to meet the problems which life holds in store for us. There have been times in our school life when everything seemed dark and disheartening. We have learned, the meaning of sorrow and disappoint- ment-to some degree-from the human standpoint. And at times it was hard to agree with Browning when he wrote the cheering words "All's right with the worldf' We realize now it was necessary for us to meet disappointments and under- go hardships to be able to reach the perfection of character we all desire to attain, and know that: "Behind a frowning providence, He hides a smiling face." We who are about to take our places in the world outside of school are glad to feel the assurance that God holds our destinies in the hollow of His hand, and shapes our paths accord- ing to His all-wise, all-powerful con- ception. You ask us where we are going and what we are going to do. Can we say? We may think we have our lives mapped out in a systematic form, but one breath of wind may change our whole plan, to prove to us once more the reality that there is a: "Divinity that shapes our lives, Rough-hew them how we will". We admit we dare, not tell just what our lives may be, or where they may be lived. We can only say: "I know not where God's place for me may beg I only know I cannot drift Beyond His love and care." Does it matter where we may drift so long as we are doing our part in the Divine plan? Whatever our part may be we will do our best to live up to the aims and ideals of the school from which we are going. To you, Miss Berry, who by your prayers and persistent labor made this school possible and gave us the privi- lege of graduating-want you to know we not only realize the honor that is ours, but we also comprehend some of the responsibility that belongs to that honor. We have done our best to make the most of every opportunity made possible for us. And we trust Page Seventeen SILVER AND BLUE that you will ever find us loyal to our dear Alma Mater. We welcome you, who have come to watch the passing of this first class into the real commencement of our lives. Again we extend the most cordial and sincere welcome to one and all. VALEDICTORY Classmates, Members of the Faculty, Friends: I count it a signal honor to represent to you, this, the "pioneer" class of Berry college. To you, this may be only one of such occasions, but to us, it is a day long to be remembered. We have "bl-azed the trail" which others are to follow and today marks the goal toward which we, for four long years, have persistently striven. We pause to look back upon our past, not as one old, growing reminiscent, but as prudent youths at the threshold of new tasks, stretching forth a hand of service. To Miss Berry our first words of parting are due. We realize that words are inadequate for expressing our gratitude to her. She has touched, strengthened, and transformed our lives. During our sojourn at Berry each of us has gained a higher and nobler vision. We shall ever cherish the fond memories of our days at this institution and shall each endeavor to pass on to our fellow man those noble thoughts and ideals which our beloved Founder has instilled into our minds and souls. Dr. Green, Dr. Cook, and Members of the Faculty, we offer you our heart- felt appreciation for the part you have played in molding our characters. Your lives have been beacons guiding us along the paths of truth and wisdom. ml As we leave your supervision we feel that each of us is equipped with a measure of knowledge and a fund of rich experiences which we shall list among our greatest treasures. Fellow students of the rising classes, we welcome you to the place which we are now vacating and we know that you will fill it worthily. To you we intrust the interests that we once held together. We are glad to commend them to you who have proven your unwaver- ing allegiance to our Alma Mater. In parting we pass on to you this thought: "Bold efforts are Ambition's feet With which she climbs the highest mount, The path of service spans defeat, And leads unto achievement's fountf' Classmates, we have been the "trail blazers" of a great institution. We are proud to be the first graduates of such a noble college. Our honor has been attained by effort. Our lives have been fortified by faith and colored by our environment. All of us are filled with burning ambitionsg but let us not for- get, that life is neither all success, nor all failure. If the outlook be dark, remember, the tide will turn. There is one thing we can all do, and that is, keep on keeping on! "We may not reach the utmost height On which our eyes are set, But we can keep our brightest light On heart's strong parapet. "The greatest prize is not the goal That shines out far ahead, But hearts that mingle with the soul, And lift it from the dead." Every sensible man knows his faults and is doing his best to correct them.

Our history has been lived, enjoyed and looked upon with scorn, but most of it will never be recorded. Some class histories contain mysteries, some tell of tragedies, some record only brilliant humor, some reveal Page Twenty SILVER AND BLUE an romantic fiction, and only a few live up to anything serious, and none are ever truthful. It would be incom- patible with the real nature and spirit of the Junior class of 1932 to attempt to interpret its history with high-flown, imaginary facts. This year we watch Berry's first college seniors depart from the shadows of her steeples and go from their mis- her guiding hand. We look at past, we aim to profit by their takes and examples and sound a bigger gun when we leave our Alma Mater. Berry has already begun a period of expansion that will characterize her throughout the world. Our hearts, minds and souls are all with her. We entered the junior college here three years ago. Last year we finished the first goal. Today we are candidates for the various liberal arts degrees. As the days slowly passed we wil- lingly sat back and listened with the seniors at the lectures. Time and time again we have heard the speaker tell them, "The world wants and needs more men and women like you." Juniors have little idea what the world will do with them, but we look forward to the time when we take their places in the school activities. Ill would it become the Junior class to prate about assuming the responsi- bility of administering the affairs of the clubs and societies for the past two years. But we do think that all should know that our class has been a leading group since our cradle days, furnishing leaders in college affairs, captains, managers, dictators and presi- dents. Several names might be men- tioned, names of men and women who have played prominent parts in making the college as well as being a part of the great Junior class. We do not point with pride to our favorite sons :nd daughters or to our geniuses, for we have none, we do not boast of gigantic intellects or athletic phenoms for the same reason. In the fall of 1932, life will reappear on our campus, a new group will be master of the helm of student activities. From a place of obscurity to the one of greatest prominence will be the difference between the old juniors and the new seniors. We must go on and on though some do fall by the wayside. There are those who are forced to stop and work, others go out entering into fateless life-time partnerships, and still others drift into the various occupations. To those less fortunate than us and to the patient, hard-working sophomores, we hope a full measure of success. Now as we are about to depart from our junior dress to take up the dignity of a senior, we still hold with us many friendships formed, and many pleasant memories of days gone by. To the seniors, we breathe a sad farewell and bid them God-speed. To the faculty of our college we assure you that you shall never be ashamed of your Junior class of '32 or your Seniors of '33. To the sophomores we say, "Follow us." For we are going to: Work hard and be strong, halting not in our ways, Balking the bad half won for an instant dole of praiseg Work diligently and be wise-certain of sword and of pen, We are neither children nor gods, but men in a world of men.

We Sophs came to college on a bright September day of 1930 with high hopes and aspirations that touched the ethe- real blue of the heavens, plenty of courage, freshness, and, in fact, not a little greenness as was shown by our first motto "Green but growing." Those days of going to college that we had all dreamed about, and pictured mentally so many times in high school were now immediately before us. We got off with a good start at our first class meeting, our roll numbered one hundred and forty-five, the follow- ing ofiicers were elected: Harvey Rodgers, presidentg Doris Purcell, vice president, Glenn Jolley, secretary- treasurerg and Miss Alta Sproull and Kankakee Anderson, faculty advisers, As the year rolled before us there were days of joyous accomplishment, and, we must add-some days of dark- ness when we realized that there was so much more in this old world to learn than we had ever dreamed of in the "Cock-sureness" of our senior high school days. Our class was well rep- resented in school activities, in sports we were extremely well represented, as also in music, debating, public speaking, and other extra curricular activities. When registration day for the fall of '31 came we found some of our members no longer with us, several had gone to school elsewhere, others stopped to work, and death had claim- ed our beloved Ruby Smith. How- ever, at our first class meeting a splendid class spirit was shown. Jesse Ray Gunn was elected president, Mar- garet Coleman, vice president, Frank Moore, treasurer, Elena Stephens, secretaryg Miss Alta Sproull and Mr. Tracy Byers, faculty advisers. This year our class has piled up an even more enviable record in basket- ball, baseball, track, and we are well represented in the orchestra, band, choir, melody club, debating, Syrreb and Georgian Literary Societies, and other clubs of the campus. We hope as we come to the end of this year, that the coming year may find every class member in college fill- ed with determination to make an even greater standing as Juniors and so prove to our beloved Founder and to our friends that we will live up to our! motto, "To thine own self be -trife."3 "How beautiful is youth! how bright it gleams With its illusions, aspirations, dreams! Book of beginnings, Story without end, Each maid a heroine, and each man a friend!" There's something good, even noble, about anyone who does his job well. "JUST SMILE" "A cheerful word, a sunny smile To those we meet each day, Are things that make our life worth while, The little things that pay. "For those that own a smile and song The skies are always bright, And the world can never seem all wrong When we ourselves are right."

Page Twenty-five SILVER AND BLUE was History When the inflowing tide of students came surging through the Gate of Opportunity in September of 1931, the old-timers and left-overs began to look about for the usual familiar faces. Slowly the fact dawned upon them that they were compassed about by a numerically superior multitude of be- wildered humanity belonging to that insignificant species called freshmen. Their first sensation was one of horror at the thought of having to endure the presence of this green mass. But wait! Their thoughts took a swift turn and a new outlook-here was fresh meat in delightful abundance. What oppor- tunities! The look of horror changed to one of malicious foreboding, while the heretofore blank faces of the freshmen assumed a condition of terrified appre- hension. What great disaster was about to overtake them? When, where, and how would it strike? The fresh- men of the class of '35 were experienc- ing all the normal, healthy sensations that every true freshman should. But alas! the blow never fell. Nerves strained to the breaking pointg meek faces peered about expectantlyg the torture of suspense continued. Finally it became rumored that the upper classmen were only bluffing, that they lacked the courage to encounter the insignificant newcomers in actual com- bat. As an unbiased narrator of facts the writer must let it be known that the failure of the orgy of initiation to materialize was due to no such cause, but the freshmen cannot be blamed for imagining that it was. Neither can they be blamed for immediately or- ganizing themselves into the outstand- ing element of the school. The upper- classmen calmly accepted those insig- nificant creatures as their equals and dumbly shook their heads and blinked as those same bold, in- their eyes subordinate upstarts swiftly and surely spread in a most unfreshmanlike way into every activity of college. Tradition has been smashed, prece- dent completely ignored, and conven- tion scorned as the freshmen have con- fidently and with little effort shown the way to even the usually dignified seniors. The baseball series showed the winning team over half freshmen, the captain included, field day credits the freshmen with two thirds of the points, and the freshman basketball team smashed through to victory even after an early defeat. In academic ac- tivity as well the yearlings have pro- duced abundant representation. The Honor Club, literary societies, choir, orchestra, 'and band are all amply stocked with freshmen. The freshmen have not become accustomed to Berry, Berry has become accustomed to the freshmen. Now we have the new model fresh- man-a respectable element of the stu- dent body, a novel creation of one mis- conceived idea. In these topsy-turvy conditions at Berry, when the familiar question comes, "What class are you in?", our modern first year man no longer hangs his head in miserable shame, but raises a beaming counten- ance, proudly thrusts out his chest and announces "I'm a Freshman!" student organization and any consequence at the "A prominent American doctor says that 'in fifty years kissing will be a thing of the past.' As if we would care-then."

We have gained much and know you have received much from your books and the contacts you have made with your teachers and fellow schoolmates. You have gotten the habit of work which is one half of the victory of success. "My son, remember you have to work. Whether you handle pick or wheelbarrow or a set of books, digging ditches or edit- ing a newspaper, ringing an auction bell of writing funny things, you must work. Don't be afraid of killing yourself by overwork- ing on the sunny side of thirty. Men die sometimes, but it is because they quit at nine p. m. and don't go home until two a. m. It's the intervals that kill, my son. The work gives you appetite for your rnealsg it lends solidity to your slumberg it gives you a perfect appreciation of a holiday. There are young men who do not work, but the country is not proud of them. It does not even know their namesg it only speaks of them as old So and So's boys. Nobody likes themg the great, busy world doesn't know they are here. So find out what you want to be and do. Take off your coat and make dust in the world. The busier you are, the less harm you are apt to get into, the sweeter will be your sleep, the brighter your holidays, and the better satisfied the whole world will be with you." May God bless you as you go forth to uphold the ideals of Berry and in your every effort to make the world a better and richer place to live in, is my prayer. Sincerely yours, H. GRADY HAMRICK, SR. '35 V Ernest H. Buell, B. S. D E A N A424 Dear Graduates of Class '32: As I look out upon the beauty of the campus, see the dogwood and wild honeysuckle, the buildings and trees, moun- tains and valleys, I cannot keep from thinking that much of this beauty has become a part of each of you during the years of your stay here. The tasks and duties that you have had to perform have been many and varied, each as it were, a block of Georgia marble which has gone into the building of your character in preparation for a career. Now as you are on the threshold ready to depart may there be no sense of a loss, but rather a sense of being a part of the whole which can never be separated. Thus wherever you go, wherever you are, there will Berry Beauty be found and work well done. It has been my good fortune and pleasure to have come to Mount Berry when some of you came, to have worked and played together with you and now to see you go forth as our first High School graduates from this campus. We, who have been contemporary with you, have seen the Mountain School of grammar grade grow and develop into the Mount Berry High School for Boys. No other class can ever hold the unique place that is yours. All of the experiences we have had together now blend into just one joyful occasion never to be forgotten. I am sure each of us has been benefitted by this fellowship. "Blessed are they that dwell together in unity." May not one of you ever forget Mount Berry or ever lose a vital connection with your Alma Mater. Your sincere friend, ERNEST H.

PROPHECY You will be quite surprised to know what strange things have happened during these ten years since we were at dear old Berry. Our class seems to have been very important since even the waves have kept track of its members. Becoming tired of the noise and turmoil of the busy streets, I wander out into the open country and there, to my great surprise, I meet one of my classmates, Spurgeon Sitton. Just at twilight we come upon a rippling stream and there we sit down. Our thoughts begin to turn to the good old days of the past-to our school days and classmates. What has happened to them? What has been their role in life? Can you imagine our surprise when we find that the humming of the brook seems to have a message for us? Upon our listening a little closer, it imparts to us the where-a-bouts of these long-lost friends. You will remember the tragedy that happened while we were Seniors and aroused international interest-the dis- appearance of the Lindbergh baby. Although ten years have passed, all clues have failed and all hopes have vanished, there is one who has never given up hope. The faithful and true Lema Barnes is still searching and says, "Where there is a will there is a way." Mary Chandler's dream of having an up-to-date tea room has been partly realized, for she and Luther Beaver now have a joint Weiner stand out on Snod Grass Plain. Of course they were married soon after graduating. Essie Gladdin and Jewell Mathis are now in social service work. 'I'hey are greatly shocked over modern youth and have resolved to give their lives to the social cause. They have had wonderful results and their names are famous in the social world. Colvin Lee, better known as "Shorty", has made our class famous because he has just been chosen Poet Laureate of Georgia on the merits of his poem in honor of his new bride, Beatrice Bennett. Clara Ellison seems to have changed her idea of financial affairs as she no longer dreads to see a "Dunn" coming. Zona White is now the world's greatest swimmer. You will be sur- prised to know that she received her first inspiration paddling in the pools at Berry in the moonlight. We have been wondering what hap- pened to our ambitious Atha Lambert and we find that she has Miss Bever- ly's place at Berry. She takes great delight in making the girls wear their sweaters and number ten shoes. Agnes Scott college is most fortunate to have as its professor of geometry none other than our own Lucile Humphrey. Wayne Dowdy is now known throughout his native state, Alabama, as a successful farmer. He gained this great renown through the aid of his wife, the former Louise Cox, who by F Page Sixty-two SILVER AND BLUE the aid of her knowledge of rural eco- nomics gained at Berry, was able to revolutionize Scooting Grease Valley. Wayne has shown all the old farmers th-at in order to be a great success they must let no "Holidays" interfere with their work. Strange to say, Inez Terry decided that "Winters" are preferable to "Bull Dogs," because she and Curtis Winters are now married and have an up-to- date beauty shoppe in New York. Cur- tis has become famous by making a solution that will make short men grow tall. Donnell Purcell and Bobbie Hicks are now two of the world's noted opera singers. They gained this fame by sing- ing songs composed by our own Doris Simonton. She is also their accompanist. Evelyn Hall now has Mrs. Henry's place of assisting Miss Berry. She travels around with our founder and gives lectures on the Berry Schools. Lera Futch is a great politician. We are glad to say that she was elected to the House of Representatives at the last election. Ruth Simmons has become a great movie actress. She gained her fame by starring in "The Fate of a Sheperd" written by her husband, Curtis Waters, who is now a great Playwright. Maude Jackson is now the dietican at Berry. Her skill can be proved by tak- ing as an example, Hetty Tankersley, who is also a member of the faculty there. Before taking the diet prescribed by Maude, Hetty weighed ninety-five pounds and now she weighs three hundred. Irene Meeks is busily engaged in helping her husband, J. C. Mashburn, make blueprints for a new gynasium to t - IN be erected on the college campus at Berry. -1- Sylvia Lee Lowery now a famous surgeon, guarantees her operations as painless-to herself. "Sally" Plumm is head of a matri- monial bureau in London. Although she has been disappointed lin love she is willing to help others along this line. Viola Stanford, having come to the conclusion that the young people of today are too wild, has, to our surprise, resolved to remain single. She delights in returning to Berry and talking in chapel on "The Im- portance of Chaperons" and "The Dangers of Too Many Socials." Angie Manning is Arnerica's great- est novelist. Her heroes are all taken from real life and they are all very sporty because they are centered around a i'Camp". . Jimmie Nelson and Louise Meeks have a nice home in Texas Valley. Jimmie is principal of a school in Possum Trot and Louise is his assis- tant. They have decided that a quiet life is preferable. Doris Simmons, after finishing a commercial course, is employed as the alumni secretary at Berry. Irene Leary holds the record of flying around the world in twelve hours. She is engaged to Ralph Gas- kins as a result of her fame. Rachel Gandy's cartooning ability has been used to a great advantage in making her known as the great- est dress designer of today. Her styles are known in all parts of- Hark! The wind is blowing so that 'we can no longer hear what the brook has to tell us. It has told us about Page Sixty-three SILVER AND BLUE v5 i just enough of our classmates to make us curious to know what the others are doing. Right now we are going to leave the little brook and travel by aeroplane to see and inquire about them. We arrive in Philadelphia where we find I-Ion. Paul Ogle serving as judge of a Federal court there. He tells us that he has just returned from South America where he has been visiting Edward Lyons who is a civil engineer in the service of The United States Government. We soar into Hollywood and are greeted by "Strawberry" Stover who has caused the world to laugh at his comedy. At Shanghai we rest from our travels for a few days with William Col- lins. He is there as a representative of the Ingram-Hicks Steel Corpora- tion of Birmingham, Alabama. From Mr. Collins we learn that Fain Ingram and Glenn Hicks are doing a world- wide business, manufacturing and selling a new kind of steel made by a process which Mr. Ingram perfected. We make our journey back to San Diego, California, and stop at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Doyle Tatum. Mrs. Tatum who was formerly Miss Ethel Etheridge is a noted novelist and Mr. Tatum is professor of Mathe- matics in a flourishing college there. They tell us that Mr. and Mrs. Rob- ert Keith have been to visit them a few days ago. Mrs. Keith, whom we knew as Annie Myrl Blackwelder, is a poetess while Mr. Keith is editor of "The New York Times." When we get to Dallas we spend a day at a school directed by Mr. Edward Merrell. He lives at the home of a prominent business man, Mr. Joe Alexander, who, having married Miss Dollie Ruth Hodges, decided to settle down in Dallas. At Memphis we attended an alumni banquet at which we met and talked with Robert Boyd who is doing a hundred-thousand-dollar busi- ness in St. Louis. Horace Barnett gives us a great surprise when he tells us that Austin Cannon, after studying law and after marrying Miss Nettie Hardaway, is a partner with Mr. Barnett in a law office in Philadelphia. Mr. Barnett also tells us that Geddins Cannon has married Miss Lucy Howell who has helped him to build up a flou- rishing business in Macon., Georgia. When we get to Dalton we find Arthur Agnew as Mayor of the city and Harold Babb, Superintendent of County Schools. Mr. Babb has built up a fine system of schools during the short time he has been in office. Of course, having come so close to Old Berry we have to pay her a visit-but what do you think we see? She has grown so much that we almost loose our way, but when we reach the High School we find Mr. Fred Beaird in charge of the farm department, Mr. Elmer Capps and Mr. Clinton Simonton teaching ag- riculture, and the Recitation our eyes: "Mr We stand in when we pass through Hall, this sign catches Lloyd Sanders-Dean." amazement while Mr. Sanders comes out and greets us with a smile of contentment. Upon turning about, we see in the opposite office, Mr. Paul Craven attending to his duties as secretary to Dr. Hamrick. We learn from Mr. Sanders that Mar- cus Sheram is a dairy farmer near Page Sixty-four SILVER AND BLUE on Chattanooga, and that Willie and Em- mett West are following a similar vo- cation near Carrollton. We hear an automobile outside and just now we are surprised by the appearence of Mr. Daniel Newbern who is also visiting Berry. Mr. Newbern is military in- structor at the University of Georgia. He, not knowing our mode of travel, invites us to tour with him to Athens and we, realizing that our journey must be almost finished, since we have learned the conditions of almost all of our friends, give our plane to Berry and accept his invitation. We also leave our pilot, Ellis Stewart, who, having feared a sun stroke, took to the air where he can keep cool. We stop in Atlanta at the law oflice of Mr. Berry Sayer, a successful lawyer there. While we are in Atlanta, Mr. Luther Nuckolls invites us to his the- ater which is one of the best in the city. We are greeted at "Georgia" by Gor- don Hammond and Ehner Minter. Mr. Hammond teaches public speaking and Mr. Minter is in charge of the Uni- versity's live stock. This completes the circle. You may judge for yourself who is most happy, most successful, and most widely known. WILL In behalf of my client, the class of 1932 of the Berry High School, Mount Berry in the State of Georgia, U. S. A., I have summoned you together to call your attention to her last will and testament. Being of unsound mind and judge- ment, she wishes to bequeath to her friends and loved ones such chattels and personal possesions as she has been able to acquire through a long and brilliant life. It is her wish from her dying lips that these gifts recieve fair treatment and proper usage, the faculty committee on discipline to be the judges. My client wishes me to state, how- ever, that because of brain fever which she contracted as a result of hard thinking and too much study during the "rushed" seasons, she may have a tendency to show partiality in some instances, but it is really the desire of her heart to distribute her wealth equally and justly among her many friends and heirs. Item: We bequeath to Miss Berry our profound gratitude for opening the Gate of Opportunity to us. We realize that she has laid a heavy load of responsibility upon our shoulders. We want to be worthy of it, and help open the gate of opportunity for some- body else. Girls ltem: We, the class of '32, do hereby will and bequeath to the class of '33 our ability to agree on all occasions, and to be of the same mind on any subject, question, plan, or problem. Item: We, the class of '32, do most relunctantly will to our underclassmen the privilege of attending all social activities of whatever nature they may be, on the one condition that they appear on all such occasions in strict uniform. Item: Thirty-two wills and bestows upon the cl-ass of '33 the silver loving cup which has been ours for two years. This is done with the provision that Moss Hackett be the instructor in case Miss Rice has founded another school. Item: Lucy Howell, Inez Terry, and -Page Sixty-five W SILVER AND BLUE Irene Meeks will their hits with all the teachers to Findley Thomas, Mar- tha Hall, and Mary Lou Edwards, pro- vided they will keep hits as well as said parties have. Item: Sally Plumm, Lucy Howell, Angie Manning, and Louise Cox will their apartment number 216 and nmn- ber 217 to Marie Bagley, Dorothy Curry, Reba Lummus, and Nell Hol- liday provided they will stay in one as much as the other. Item: Louise Cox and Sally Plumm will their art of making coffee to Wynelle Westbrook and Lila Carmi- chael. This is done with the one pro- vision that the girls mentioned chunk all coffee and cooking utensils into the closet and act perfectly innocent when Mrs. Harden appears on the scene. Item: Doris Simmons bequeaths to Grace Hall her ability to shoot northern brogue if she will only use it at parties to vamp the boys. Her "two- by-four" corner of the sleeping porch of Rome Cottage goes to Lillian Custer. It is understood that Lillian is to keep said corner clean. Item: Ruth Simmons gives tearfully to Mary Jack Fletcher every flake of soot that comes from the Rome Cot- tage chimneys if she will promise to wash her face at least once a week so that people will recognize her. Item: Viola Stanford wills to Martha Kendrick her audacity to wake every- one in the Cottage at three A. M. to find out how many eggs to put in the cheese scuffle. Item: Beatrice Bennett leaves to Frances Barrs the honor and privilege of being the tallest and most graceful girl in the class. Frances is warned not to get so conceited that she will lose her perfectly good hit with Miss Wingo. Item: Lucile Humphrey leaves to Wynelle Westbrooks her bashfulness, dignity, and wonderful ability to keep quiet at all times. She hopes that Wynelle will in no way lower the de- gree of perfection of these wonderful traits which she has attained through very great effort. She leaves to Lila Carmichael her "baby ways" and the sarcasm she has recently acquired. Lastly, she leaves to the junior girl who needs it most her place as a favo- rite with all the faculty. Item: Irene and Louise Meeks will their room in Rome Cottage, "Lovers' Lane," to Sybil Payton and Ruth Thomas. Item: Lucy Howell wills her accu- racy in ringing the bell to Reba Lummus. Item: Bessie Worley, Inez Terry, and Essie Gladdin will their middy suits to Miss Rice with the understanding that she will distribute them among the girls who love to march at the end of the line. Item: "Tank" and "Evelina" hereby will to Grace Hall and Inez Seay the opportunity of going to the chicken roost after dark and scaring the duck away never to return. Item: To the High School girls only goes the Field Day Queen's train pro- vided Ruth Simmons, Irene Meeks or Hettie Tankersley won't get married and use it. Item: Louise Meeks and Donnell Purcell will the Rome Cottage ice cream freezer to Mildred McGinty and Gay Moreland provided they turn the the not crank one hundred times after contents are frozen. They must invite the fireman to have the first serving. Page Sixty-six SILVER AND BLUE Boys Item: We relinquish, give, bestow, surrender, yield, and bequeath to our faculty a period of rest after their rigid course of training under our guid- ing hands. We know that we are let- ting them go with some faults, but we have done our best to make upstanding men and women of them. We confer upon them the absolution from all re- sponsibility to us. They may stay up late at night, smoke in their rooms, do any kind of dances they prefer, or otherwise disregard the rules of the schools without having the fear that they are being checked up on by us. Item: Thirty-two bestows upon the "sub seniors" the right to be Seniors after this day. The "subs', are cautioned not to abuse this precious heritage during the summer and next fall. Item: To the juniors also go our be- loved seats at the dignified senior tables in the dining hall. All quids of chewing gum found under the edges of the tables are included in the gift. Thirty-three is cautioned to continue thirty-two's practice of setting an ex- ample of table manners for the faculty. Item: Finally '32 bequeaths to '33 the privilege of wearing '32's Senior caps during the forthcoming summer. Item: Fain Ingram wishes to place the responsibility of keeping Friendship Hall and Mr. Buell quiet during study hour upon Gwen Futch and the Miller Twins. Fain feels that it will require three men to hold down his job satisfactorily. Item: Austin Cannon, Luther Beaver, James Stover, Wayne Dowdey, and Horace Barnette wish to bestow upon Stacy Meeks, "Deacon" Kell, John Dillard, and Ralph Bullard their ability to dodge the night watchman when re- 'N turning from nocturnal recreational strolls to West Rome and parts un- known. However, they wish to advise these boys not to try hiding behind doors in case they get into a tight place. Item: Spurgeon Sitton and Ellis "Kam" Stew-art leave their natural in- clination for pretty girls to Thomas "Whoopee Doodle" Leonard and Joe Lord. Item: Curtis Winters wills his front seat in "Chesterfield Alley" to Charles McClain. Charles is advised not to strike any trees over six inches in diameter and not to strike these at too high a rate of speed in case he is called upon to leave said "Chesterfield Alley" rather hurriedly. Item: Geddins Cannon wills his "hit" with Mr. Hamrick and his job as driver of the "Meacham Bus" to Dan Estes. Dan is admonished not to fall victim to "dangerous curves" as "Ged" has. Item: Elmer Capps, Clinton Simonton, Doyle Tatum, and Ellis Stewart bestow their ability to do physics experiments on paper to John Ford, Benson McBrayer, Ivy McDonald, and Ash- bury Singley. Item: Paul Ogle wills his office as president of the Brown Mule Mastioat- ing Association to Mark Grace. Paul says he feels that with the excellent training he has given Mark he will be able to keep the good work going. Item: Glenn Hicks donates his job as "swine father" to Mike Stitt. Glenn also wills his office as secretary to the "Wine Bibbers Association" to Wood- row Dillard, and his "D" on conduct to Lonnie Johnston. Item: Dan Newbern leaves his old bull wagon job to Mr. Hamrick. Dan says he does this because he feels that Page Sixty-seven SILVER AND BLUE VDD Mr. Hamrick is the only other person on the campus with the necessary assortment of the particular words re- quired to get best results from the bull team. Item: "Shorty" Lee leaves his "way with the ladies" and ability as a grace- ful dancer to Buell Trapnell. Item: Arthur Agnew leaves his stock in the "Rudolph and Randolph Cor- poration" to Rudolph alone. Item: Emmett West confers his ability as a mail carrier upon Carter Jones. Emmett leaves with Carter the advice that he investigate thoroughly any let- ters intrusted to him before delivering them. Item: The minor possesions of '32 are disposed of as follows: Ed Merrell, having tired of sweets, wills his "Custard" to John Lee West. Curtis Winters leaves his long legs to Ben Hill Ellerbee. Paul Craven leaves his "Holliday" to Wallace Gentry. He feels that Wallace will need the rest. The remainder of our property and personal possesions, not herein con- tained and hereby disposed of, we leave to the Social Committee with the faint hope that this valuable gift will in some way soften their hearts toward our younger brothers and sisters. Thus from her dying hands '32 dis- poses of her chattels and possesions. Be it further known that we do here- by appoint and constitute the Hon. Julius F. Kany the sole executor of this, the last will and testament of the class of '32. In witness whereof, we the class of '32, the testators, have to this, our last will, set our hand and seal, this second day of May, Anno Domini one thousand nine hundred and thirty-two. POEMS Our high school days are over, We must leave our Berry homeg But its ideals will go with us, No matter where we roam. There is regret, we must agree, Deep, deep down in our hearts, We've grown to love the Berry School, And with it we're loathe to part. Then there are our Berry friends These are ties we must sever, too, We'll find new ones in days to come Yet none so dear, so true. Was it four long years ago That we came to Berry Fair? Little did we realize then How much we'd learn to care. But what's the use to sit and sigh For a moment cannot forever last. Let's strive to make the future Worth the hardships of the past. "Climb tho' the rocks be rugged" Has been the motto of our classg May we ever shun temptation And be loyal to the last. We've spent the best part of our lives Under "The Silver and the Blue"- Then pray its standards may ever guide us, And help us to be true. So let's be careful fellow classmates About the little things we do For with us will rest the honor Of the class of '32. -Angie Manning Page Sixty-eight SILVER AND BLUE GRADUATION TIME Graduation time With all its thrills is here, The saddest and gladdest Time of all the year. Our senior prophecy is written And the will is made, Our senior parties are over And the bills are paid. Our invitations are sent To friends far and near, And many of them have accepted And are already here. Our books are in the store Ready to be sold again, And we have spent our money For a piece of sheep skin. A symbol which may be Insignificant to you, But it represents much work For the class of thirty-two. There are thousands Of experiences we cannot forget, But some of our fool pranks We will always regret. But we have no time now To look into the past, The time has come when Our eyes to the future must be cast. So with the training Which in school we did obtain Let us strive in the future The higher things to gain. So dear founder and teachers, We bid you adieu. If we make a success in life The credit's all to you. SALUTATORY Members of the Faculty, Classmates, and Friends: It gives me great pleasure to greet you this afternoon, and in be- half of the class of '32 to extend to you a sincere welcome. We are all glad to see so many pre- sent here. This shows us you are really interested, and we hope your faith in us has not been in vain. We wish to thank Miss Berry heartily for the wonderful opportunities we have had here. Without her great sacri- fices, this event could not have taken place. If we can only carry on the ideals and aims that have been set before us, I am sure our dreams will be realized. With these ambitions be- fore us, we can hope to climb the ladder of success. To the members of the faculty who have served so faithfully and been so patient with us, we extend our sincere thanks. We shall not forget the part they have played to make this event possible. To them we owe much for they have helped to uphold the Berry Ideals. We must now bid farewell to our Alma Mater. Our mistakes and proba- ble failures we cannot reoall. Yet we are glad of the trials and troubles we have experienced because they have made us stronger. Father Powell said, "Great occasions do not make heroes of cowards, they simply reveal them!" We only hope that when great ocassions come to us, we shall be ready to meet them and prove that we are not cowards. We hope to be ready because of the training we have received here. Since I cannot express to you how glad we are to have you with us this afternoon, I bid you a most cordial -Colvin Lee "Welcome" Page Sixty-nine OO! SILVER AND BLUE wan VALEDICTORY Miss Berry, Faculty, Classmates, and Friends: We have reached another landing on the stairway of life and we must pause here to bid farewell to our Alma Mater. This farewell is fraught with both joy and sorrow-joy, that we have attained this stage in our careers and can now turn our thoughts to a new goal, college or a vocation- sorrow, that we must leave this place which has meant so much to us and that we must part from the friends which we have found and hold so dear. To Miss Berry we wish to give our sincere thanks for what she has done for us, for those who have gone before, and for those who are to follow in our footsteps. We realize that if it had not been for her inspiration, faith, and labor we would not be here today. We also wish to thank the Faculty for the part they have had in making us what we are. We know that at times we have not measured up to their highest hopes, but, we can never for- get the lessons they have so faithfully taughtg and in our years to come, we hope to exemplify our appreciation of their efforts by the lives we live. Classmates, it is with real sorrow I say "Goodbye". We shall never all meet again as a class. From this moment our paths diverge. But no matter where those paths lead, when Commencement time comes around from year to year we shall be together in spirit. May the richest blessings of Almighty God follow you to the end of your paths, and grant that at last they may all converge at His throne. We thank our friends for their support during these years, and promise that we will endeavor not to disappoint them. To one and all we bid "farewell, till we meet again." A Bit of Inspiration Let every dawn of morning be to you as the beginning of life, and every setting sun be to you as its close, then let every one of those short lives leave its sure record of some kindly thing done for others, some goodly strength or knowledge gained for yourself.-Ruskin. "So long as men shall be on earth There will be tasks for them to do. Some way for them to show their worth Each day shall bring its problems new. "And men shall dream of mightier deeds Than ever have been done before. There always shall be human needs For men to work and struggle for." Mother: Remember, grandmother gave you a nice Bible for Christmas last year. You should get her some- thing nice this year. Little Willie: I got it all picked out. I'm going to get her that 1,000-shot air riHe we saw in the hardware store window yesterday. Teacher: Quote a Scripture verse. The Kid: Judas went out into the garden and hanged himself. Teacher: That's fine! Quote another. The Kid: Go ye and do likewise! 'iSonny," said the dietetic mother, "do you want mamma to tell Santa Claus to stay away from here? Then eat your spinach."
