Wonderful changes have taken place in the last few years, and still more wonderful will be the changes of the future. These changes have been made possible by a small group of devoted and untiring builders who never faltered, even in the darkest hour, but kept on with a faith and determination which could not be denied. Like the Old North State, Catawba too has its builders. We all know who they are, and everyone can see that their efforts have not been in vain. To look back over the road we have traveled — to portray the activities of the present — to look forward to the greater Catawba — these are the purposes of the 1929 Swastika.

The Administrati on building at Catawba, which was originally intended for an industrial institute, was purchased by the Board of Trustees, and with the addition of Zartman Hall, which was immediately erected, the College began its work. Since that time Catawba College has entered upon a period of remarkable growth. The evidence of this change is everywhere visible — in the enrollment, in the addition of new buildings, which made the physical plant more adequate, and in the greatly increased number of faculty members. The high standard ' of the work of the College has become widely accredited. Within a period of only three and a half years, Catawba has risen from a practically unknown institution to a school which is recognized throughout the State as one of the outstarding, if not the outstanding, of the smaller Colleges. When Catawba College was reopened at Salisbury in 1925, the institution began work with only two buildings, the present Administration Building and Zartman Hall, a girls ' dormitory. Since that time, three large buildings have been erected, as well as the president ' s home. A splendid field has been arranged for all athletic contests in the open. An adequate gymnasium with physical education equipment was constructed at the conclusion of the College ' s first year ' s work in its new home. The Home Economics Building and the Faculty Apartments are the other additions. Two other buildings are planned for next year, a Music Building and another Faculty Apartment. The enrollment of the College has grown in remarkable proportions. In its first vear the College contained slightly over a hundred students. The enrollment of the institution at the conclusion of this year ' s work will be approximately eleven hundred, including those attending the Summer session and others connected with the Extension Department. Catawba ' s percentage of increase in enrollment was highest of any college in the State during the past year. The faculty of Catawba College has increased from year to year in order to keep pace with the increased enrollment. Catawba College has received an " A " grade rating by the College Rating Board of North Carolina. At a meeting at Fort Worth, Texas, in December of last year, the Southern Association of Colleges admitted Catawba to membership in the Association, thus placing the College on a par with any institution in the United States. This achievement stands as the highest in the history of Catawba and is the product of the exceptional period of growth which the institution is now undergoing. , I 111 SI Page Seventeen ' 29 ft! s 9-fa Swast ika. wmii Mmm » EDGAR WHITENER PRESIDENT BOARD TRUSTEES (I SI Page Eighteen $29 ft fti THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES Edgar Whitener, President ----------- High Point, N.

HOKE PRESIDENT CATAWBA COLLEGE rage Twenty-two ' 29 m fa Swastika. «5 mm mm a Dr. Elmer Rhodes Hoke President Probably the greatest individual contributor to the remarkable development of Ca- taba College since its re-establishment is her beloved President, Dr. Elmer Rhodes Hoke, His work has been most unselfish, and his efforts are manifested in both the physical and spiritual growth of the College. Dr. Hoke was born at Ada, Ohio, September 16, 1892. He graduated from the Lewistown, Pennsylvania, High School in 1909. His A. B. and M. A. degrees were received from Franklin and Marshall College, the former in 1913, and the latter in 1914. The Theological Seminary of the Reformed Church, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, conferred upon him the B. D. degree in 1917. He received his Ph. D. from Johns Hopkins University in 1922. From 1917-18, he was pastor of the Faith Reformed Church, Trafford, Pennsylvania; and from 1918-20, he served as pastor of the Trinity Reformed Church, Baltimore, Maryland. His career as an instructor extended over a period of four years. He was Professor of Education and Psychology in Hood College from 1920 to 1922, and for the next two years he held the same chair in Lebanon Valley College. Since August 7, 1924, Dr. Hoke has been President of Catawba College. He took office one year before the College was moved from Newton to Salisbury. As President, he has guided the new Catawba through the most critical period in the history of the institution. He has been the center of a great constructive program and has figured conspicuously in all phases of the College ' s growth. During the astoundingly brief period, he has served in office, four years, Catawba College has increased physically from one main building to six, with at least one other planned for next year, from a student body of 127 to one of 325, and from a faculty of 17 to one of 24. And to crown all these achievements, Catawba gained for herself national recognition when she was admitted last fall to membership in the Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Southern States. Surely, the development of the College has been remarkable, and seems destined to continue so under the most capable leadership of President Hoke. Page Twenty-thre ffil 91 3IS1 % ofo Swastika.

His splendid sportsmanship is indeed to be commended and encouraged. - On the football field, he is almost always found on the bottom in the scramble for possession of the ball, but -somehow he manages to come out on top in the end. " Red " is a very agreeable and pleasant classmate, and is always true to his friends. Always remember, Aycock lad, that the Class of ' 29 appreciates what you have done for the Class and for Catawba. Page Thirty-seven [SI " 291 [Ml rti 9 SWASTIKA. [ffil Dorothy Berlin, B.

Ruth has plenty of common sense which prompts us to call upon her for advice. She is happy and congenial. Her sense of humor makes one enjoy her company.

" Max " , as he is generally termed hy most of the students, perhaps deserves more ad mi rat ' on for his career at Catawba than any other member in the class of ' 29. Despite the fact that " Max " had a family to support and a pulpit to fill, he entered Catawba in 1925 and went through our College with the best of grades, and a character that seems fearless.

We have heard, too, that she is inter- ested in athletics, with football taking first place. But " Sis " has another aide. Whatever she does, she does well, whether it be studying, keeping house, or playing. She is popular with both students and faculty. Rain or shine, she never loses her sunny disposition.

We have found during our four years together that there need be no hesitancy in assigning an important task to Myrtle, for no matter how great the responsibility, or how difficult its performance, it would be wisely and ably executed.

She, too, is one of our Home Economics students, and the man who is fortunate enough to win her heart will indeed have a treasure. Verona is, seemingly, quiet, and unassuming.

To speak sincerely, " Diddle " is an all-round good sport. He is our " modern " Shakespeare, without a doubt.

For wit, the sagacious creep off from the fires of subtle irony : for humor, graveyards open their tombs that the dead may rise in laughter.

That is easily remedied, however, since she needs only to substitute another name for her own, and she will probably be doing that before long at any rate. Irene is one of those " scientific " girls who makes biology her major, but she is capable in other lines as well. She has been a valuable person on the staff of the Blue Masque, and she will he greatly missed next year. Mable Rumple, B. S. in Home Economics . . Kannapolis, N. C.

What shall we say of Mable ' . ' Wc feel that adequate praise can only be triven her by a certain younE Sophomore, upon whom we are not allowed to call. Her heart, apparently, has been quite easily pierced by Cupid ' s arrow, but only once does he hit the mark exactly, and now he is evidently at his wits-end, for she seems to have fallen beyond recovery. Mable, with all her knowledge of Home Economics, will undoubtedly make a fine mate for some young man, and we should like to prophesy a great future for her in that particular field. Some day we hope to visit you, Mable. Page Fifty-six Rf ' 29 " HH Hf Q , Swast ika fflffl mm s nn ii SPT iv JpT ' • jH ' - sfi % •I II Fred L. Ryan, A.

Norma gave only one-fourth of her college career to Catawba, for her first three years were spent at the University of Cine nnati. But she has been a real addition to our class in this last year, and may be an addition to the faculty next year — or at least to the faculty wives.

Oh. no. she certainly does not give all her time to study, although we must say that she has spent a great many hours in developing a deep appreciation of " A.rt " .

B Salisbury, North Carolina North Carolina College for Women 1; Blue Masque 2. Margaret was a puzzle last year. This year she is the same. Somehow we just do not know how to rate her. One moment she is unusually quiet : another moment she is bubbling over with enthusiasm; one moment she gets her lessons up; another, it seems, she is up to some " devilment " . Margaret ' s popularity, however, does not seem to wane on account of her " peculiarities " . She is popular with the boys in spite of the fact that she is not a flapper. She is popular with the girls, and How ! Stick in there, and fight Margaret; we are sure you will succeed in life, no matter what may come. Mary Margaret Smith, B. S. in Home Economics, China Grove, N. C. Philomathcan 1-2-3-4; Rembrandt Club 2; V. W, C. A. 3; First Year Club 4; Home Economics Club 4. Mary is unusually quiet and reserved in comparison with many other college girls. One has to pierce the outer cloak, however, to find a warm and cheerful heart within. Mary exemplifies probably to a greater degree than any other the old saying, " Still waters run deep. " She is always very conscientious and diligent in her work, and we seldom see Mary idle or loafing. From all indications we can judge that she expects to teach Domestic Science in the future. Mary, your class wishes you good luck, and we hope you will find ample occasion to use your training in cooking and sewings — if not in one way, then in another.

Troutman ' s decision in the fall of ' 25 to cast his lot with our class will long be appreciated by his classmates as well as by the student body at large, because of his loyalty to his class and to the student body in general. Clarence is a warm- hearted, good-natured fellow. You can always see more smiles than frowns on his face. Combined with his scholarly attitude he has a well developed sense of friendship which prevents him from having a single enemy in the entire school. His business ability has won him praise in his able assistance with the 192S edition of the Swastika. We now commit him to the world, which stands in need of such men as he. Elizabeth Warlick, A.

There is much to be said about " Lib " . However, we can say nothing other than good.

Contrary to modern belief concerning blends, Elizabeth has plenty of both brain-power and will-power. Just try and put anything over on " Lib " .

Not only has " Cat " proven her weakness for making " A ' s " , but has exhibited her superior intellect again and again, when ever the occasion arose. It was " Cat " who gave us our name for the Pioneer, who helped organize our student government, and who helped build a bigger and greater Catawba. " Cat " is never at a loss in any field. She can plunge into the deepest realms of philosophical problems with a serious nature, or she can be the life of a group of mirthful students. Success to you " Cat " , in life.

She has so many of those characteristics which are admirable and desirable — originality, charm, and personality. Special mention should be made of Margaret ' s high scholastic rating. Her brain is one of the keenest type, and she has done excellent work. We have not been able to know " Peg " as well as we might wish, for her social duties apart from Collegiate activities have demanded a greater part of her time. In spite of her active social life, she has succeeded in winning many friends on the campus by her ready smile and her gay spirit of comradeship.

After spending her Freshman, Sophomore and Junior years in colleges of the Key- stone State, Florence came to Catawba. We sincerely regret that these three years were not. passed with us, for it would have been to the advantage of the class. Florence is a jrirl whom few of us are privileged to know intimately, for she is shy and reserved. She is especially talented musically. In addition to being an excellent organist, she has unquestionably the purest and strongest contralto voice in the Glee Club. Paralleled to her musical ability is her high scholastic rating. Florence, we need not wish you success and happness, for that is innate within you. Helen Watsop A. B Salisbury, North Carolina Mitchell College 1-2-3; Y. W. C. A. 4; Rembrandt Club 4. A sincere friend, that ' s Helen ! On account of her quiet and unassuming manner, many have not learned to appreciate her true worth, but that is their loss. The first three years of her college career were spent elsewhere, and in the fall of 1928 she embarked upon her senior year with the class of ' 29. She has been a fine addition to our class. Knowing only the highest and best in life herself, she can only think of others. To such a one the future can bring naught but happiness. Success awaits you, Helen, in your future life, whether as wife or in any other undertaking that you might decide on. HI Page Sixty-one ' 29 [SI ffi 9fa Swastika.

Howc ' er we stayed — our freshman class would ne ' er retreat. We loved Catawba! How proudly have we watched yon as you grew To be great, while still so new, Fair Alma Mater!

Oh, may thy teachings always be our guild in g light And may the ties grow stronger that unite Our class and thee, Catawba. —K. Hall. Pa c Sixty-two 111 P9 m si fflffl ffiHffi HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF ' 29 In September, 192J, we, the Class of ' 29, answered the call for students at Catawba and bravely waded across the muddy campus, and stumbled over the bricks, planks, and assorted debris which filled a large part of the entrance to the Administration Building. With much fear and trepidation we registered and became the Pioneer Class of the New Catawba. Our first year was filled with some of the hardships that always confront pioneers. We met with the problem of trying to occupy in comfort buildings that were not com- plete. In blankets and overcoats we were obliged to shiver until the heating system could be installed. Many were the bruises received and false steps on the shaky plank walks, and great was the physical and mental energy spent in contriving ways to cross in safety the campus which was filled with small lakes and bogs. In spite of all our difficulties we were richly rewarded for our perseverance during that first year. Since the upper classmen were so greatly in the minority we were given many privileges and positions that freshmen seldom enjoy. Pleasant are the memories of evenings spent at social gatherings in Zartman Hall, and very happy were we as we often bumped gaily into town in the old College Bus. Most important of all we developed a comradeship, a spirit of loyalty to our Class and Alma Mater which has featured greatly in the development of Catawba. The next year, along with the dignity that resulted from our high position as Sopho- mores, came many changes in our life at College. To our joy, we found a splendidly equiped gymnasium ready for use, and a coach to train our athletic teams which were developing from a rather feeble group into the formidable Indians. Many improve- ments had been made in the general appearance of the campus. As Juniors we saw other innovations at Catawba. New buildings were erected, an athletic field completed, new departments added, and the endowment increased to one million dollars. During our Senior year came the crowning event in the history of the College, when Catawba was admittd to membership in the Southern Association of Accredited Colleges. In reviewing our history we find that our Class has made many contributions to the Alma Mater. To athletics we have given some of the bravest Indians that will ever go on the warpath. To all student activities, and especially to the Blue Masque, we have giver, much material. Perhaps our greatest contribution has been to student government which we have supplied with capable officers, and loyally supported. Like our pioneer fore-fathers we have helped establish an efficient government. Thus we have given a very brief history of our four years at College. We feel that we have occupied an enviable position in working with our president, faculty, and trustees to establish an institution. In the future, as in the past, we, the Pioneer Class, pledge our loyal support to the building of a greater and better Catawba. Jessie Leonard, Historian. Pa;je Sixty-three ' 29 LU IS1 | ftJE Pfr , SW4ST IKA IS SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY One evening, just as the sun was setting, I was strolling among the pines thinking of the class of ' 29 and wondering what ' their future might be. A mocking bird began to sing. 1 stopped to look for him when suddenly there appeared before me a beautiful maiden, with dazzling wings and curly locks falling over her shoulders. She wore a white robe which hung in soft folds. In her left hand she carried a golden wheel. As she came near to me I saw on the hub of this wheel the numerals 29. There were nine spokes, each of which bore an inscription. Their inscriptions were: Education, Medi- cine, Law, Religion, Commerce, Literature, Forestry, Society, and Matrimony. In her right hand was a scepter. Smiling, she raised the wheel and said: " I am Fortuna, the goddess of Fortune. I have brought this magic wheel to forecast to you the destiny of the class of ' 29.. So soon you are to part and be scattered over the world as a farmer sows his grain. Like the individual grains you have been one family, happy together. Soon you are to grow alone and bring forth your own harvest. " I gazed into her radiant face and exclaimed, " Tell me, Fortuna, where the members of the class of ' 29 will be in 1940, and what each will be doing? " As I called the roll of our class she spun the Wheel o ' f Furtune and prophecies. these " In the Field of Education, Mary Susan Griggs is Professor of Zoology of Yale Uni- versity; Mary Nicolson is professor of Mathematics of Catawba College; Mary Eliza- beth Davis is Director of Dramatic Art in the city of Richmond, Virginia; Verona Davis is State Superintendent of the Home Economics Department in North Carolina; Martha Fisher is teaching Home Economics at a Mission Station in th e Argentine Re- public; Howell Gabriel is Professor of Drama of Hollywood, California; Erastus Heglar is Professor of History of Lenoir-Rhyne College; Catherine Whitener is Dr. of Philoso- phy at Columbia University; Ruth Barringer is Supervisor of the Intermediate Grades of the Asheville City Schools; Jessie Leonard is Director of Dramatic Art at Winthrop College in South Carolina; Irene Rumple is State Supervisor of Primary Education in Georgia; Elizabeth Warlick is President of the North Carolina Dramatic Association; Frances Decker is chief Librarian and wife of a Psychology Professor at Catawba College; Julia Freeland is Professor of Home Economics of the North Carolina College for Women; Fred Ryan is Director of Physical Education at Mar ' s Hill College; Florence Wehr is Professor of Business Administration of Pennsylvania State College; Herbert Miller is Director of Physical Education for boys at Guilford College.

Therefore, read ye this History of the most noble, the most renowned, the most magnanimous Class of ' 3 0, and become enlightened. I would not appear meretricious, nor would I invoke upon myself the accusation that I am guilty of charlatanism; but it is my duty to present the unmitigated facts in such a way as to prove convincingly that the Class of ' 3 is far 1 above the common herd, phy- sically, intellectually, and especially morally. Our intellectual precocity is anomalous. That we are infinitely superior to the other classes is rarely disputed, except by the Ffeshmen, Sophomores, Seniors, and the ever contentious Faculty. In the field of intellectual achievement we have contributed such remarkable geniuses as Phoebe Hall, James Warlick, Ralph Long, Earl Long, Frankie Craven, and others too numerous to mention without the aid of a stenographer. Do not conclude that it is only in the field of the intellect that our supereminent Class of ' 3 is prominent. We have donated of our own free will such men as Foil Essick, James Warlick, Charles Warlick, Kermit Neese, and J. W. Byers to student activities. They are integrally associated with nearly every organization of good repute on the campus and with some organizations which may be otherwise described. Our intellectual superiority having been made apparent, allow me to remind the reader of this History that we have made such outstanding contributions to the athletic teams as Archie White, Rowe Fesperman, Glenn Safrit, T. W. Summersett, James Fletcher, and Arthur Smith. These men ably demonstrate the superiority of the class of ' 3 in the field of sports. No one has ever denied that our Class contains the fairest damsels on the campus. Consider Edwina Conrad, Annie Maie Benton, and Betty Kieffer! ' Nuff Sed! In attempting what appears to be my hardest task, that is, to prove that the Class of ' 30 is superior morally, I can first point out, as a shining light, Kendall Shoffner, president of the student Y. M. C. A. Then, too, the Class has made such great contri- butions to the Ministerial Band as Nelson Brown, Clair Rhodes, Charles Warlick, and Rowe Fesperman. There are many contributions for which the Class of ' 3 will never receive just re- cognition. For instance, our Class contributed three of the men who composed the 1928 " Little Six Champion " Debating Team: Kermit Neese, Charles Warlick, and Allen Dobey. Then, too, we will never be thanked for not coercing the student body to listen to a solo by Howard Newcomb, our outstanding " song-bird " . Such is the way of life. Superciliously yours, Allen Dobey, Historian. (11 (SI Page Ui°hty-two 3P291 ffi 1 % SOPHOMORC [SI 29l Page Eighty-three §1 1 o- j Swastika.

We were seen; the sophomores were heard! But that was last year. Now we have become Sophomores and have put away childish things. We have grown a year older and we have developed an Ego, perhaps Wego would be the better word, for united we stand, but divided we fall. ' We are very proud of ourselves and wo feel that a great part of Catawba ' s fame is due to the overwhelming generosity of the class of ' 31. To the Senate, the backbone of student government, we have given two of our outstanding mates: Mr. Blackmon, our president, who is treasurer of the student body, and Miss Mary Morefield. Mr. Levens, our treasurer, has won fame as an eloquent debater, as president of the Athenaean Liter- ary Society, and as a devout member of the Ministerial Band and the Y. M. C. A. To the Debating Team we also gave Mr. Nace, who has been chosen as alternate debater for two seasons; he also holds responsible offices in t ' .-.e Music Club and Orchestra. To the Editorial Staff of the Pioneer we have given ten of our literary masters. We were represented by Mr. Canup, Mr. Holsinger and others on the football team, and by Carl Everhart on the basket ball team. Our honorable president is also the vice-president of the Y. M. C. A., and treasurer of the Athenaean Literary Society. That we arc capa- ble of using many-syllable words can be proved beyond a doubt by the number of Sophomores ' taking a course in the English Dictionary. We believe that we will be able to produce several learned and loquacious orators comparable to and surpassed by only Mr. " Ike " Boone, Mr. " Diddle " Gabriel, and Mr. " Jimmy " Warlick. Wc occupy a large section in chapel, and wc feci that our widespread popularity is due to this and the above mentioned accomplishments. Anon, and ever Anon, wc have had three faculty advisers in our brief existence. These most worthy persons were Mr. Lane, professor of English, Dr. Rea, professor of Economics, and Dr. Derendinger, professor of Art, German, and History. We believe that we have had three of the best faculty advisers available at Catawba, and wc stand ready to challenge any who dares dispute our word. But seriously, as a class wc aim to advance, to the utmost of our power, the interests of the college, and to forget self-glory in gaining for our Alma Mater. — Margaret Eller, Historian.

All must leave some scar On the wall of Time, Some footprint on the sands of Chance, Some guide for those Who follow close behind, Caught in Life ' s rushing, drifting romance. There is work and adventure for all Who answer Life ' s strangely beckoning call. Each task to some other is intertwined, The shepherd ' s flock to the weaver ' s loom Is closely bound; The artist ' s dream is the poet ' s verse enshrined. And in turn, each soul Faces that open door Wondering, asking, What life holds in store. And as each soul stands at the threshold A moment pondering, Those age old questions To his mind come wanderings Whence do ive come? What shall ive do} Where do we go? What is our task? Why are we here? What do ive know? Desire is the wings of life, always for something more That ' s gamed through struggle and strife, that beckons beyond the door. —Avis T.

We naturally thought that we would be the important cog in the great wheel. The Freshman class of ' 32 enrolled on Septemb er 12, 1928. After a strenuous day cf activities, we were very glad indeed to retire to our respective rooms for a breathing spell, but, sad to say, it did not last long. Soon, we were hustled out for a warm re- ception by the " Wise Fools, " commonly called Sophomores. This reception included such events as: stump speeches and a " shirt-tail parade " for the boys; Baby walk, " and a child-hood prayer for the girls. Our first mark of distinction came in the form of a little blue cap with a white " F " on the bill and a button on top. We were proud to wear it, for it distinguished us from the other students. The Freshman class elected the following officers: President, Andrew Rader; Vice- President, James Whitener; Secretary, Alice Fisher; Treasurer, Robert Shinn; Senate Representative, Richard Hetrick. As faculty adviser, we chose Dr. John W. Myers. The Juniors gave the Freshmen a welcome which was in the form of a Treasure Hunt. Miss Gehrette McCubbins found the treasure, which was a box of one hundred bright new pennies. The Freshman — Sophomore rivalry came to a climax in a football game from which the Freshmen emerged victorious by the score of 6-0. The Freshman class presented a huge spectacle by leading the parade of the entire student body to the new athletic stadium for the first home game with Elon College. At this game, we saw our class-mates, Alta Eagle and Edward Plitt, in action as cheer leaders.

This is its special purpose, but an opportunity for entertainment is also offered to those ' who are inclined toward the social side of life. The Athenian Literary Society seeks to promote better sportsman- ship by advocating clean rivalry between the two societies. At all times it is the wish of the society to win, but only by fair means. This helps to develop the kind of attitude that should be taken in other activities. Page One Hundred Two ' 29 E 1 [SI » THE PHILOMATHEAN LITERARY SOCIETY Nolan S. Pierce, President The Philomathean Literary Society, not satisfied to rest its claim for support upon the fact that it is the oldest literary organization at Catawba, believes in maintaining with vigor its forward-looking tra- ditions, and faces the future with poise and confidence. By attention to composition, debate, orator) ' , and parliamentary practice, it aims to fit its members for leadership and responsibility, to develop initia- tive and resourcefulness, and to fill them with a social and intellectual enthusiasm that will remain with them in after years. It strives to put emphasis on the rounded development of qualities that will insure a continuing usefulness in whatever activities may attract them after graduation.

Gabriel, " President The Blue Masque, the dramatic association of Catawba College, under the direction of Mrs. John C. Busby, is one of the leading dramatic clubs in the state. The standard of the club is marked by its winning for Catawba the college championship in the state dramatic contest for the past two years. This contest is held each year, and the Blue Masque has won each time that it has entered. The purpose of The Blue Masque is to afford a workshop where enthusiastic students may have the opportunity for growth and de- velopment in this work. It is not the aim of the Blue Masque to give finished productions, but to act as a laboratory theatre where new prob- lems in staging, scenery, lighting, acting, and play production ini general may be worked out. To all those who are going out into the world from this organization the Blue Masque sends its most sincere wishes, and hopes for them the greatest success.

PROLOGUE ' ONCE THERE WAS A PRINCESS " [SI SCENE FROM: " ONCE THERE WAS A PRINCESS " Page One Hundred Six m [SI m 1 THE MINISTERIAL BAND Huitt R. Carpenter, President In the year 192!. on the sacred grounds of Catawba, this small Band of eleven young students for the ministry under the leadership ( u Renter of Lenoir - organized. This was the first turn- ing of the sod after the Band was dissolved at Old Catawba in 1923 I he work of the second year was continued with five additional men makmg a total of 1 6, and Carpenter again was its head. The next fall with an increase of men from 16 to 23, the group forged on, having tor its leader Lewis Holt of Greensboro. In the fourth year Carpenter again was chosen President of this group, now of 2 5, and it is climbing ever onward. Regular meetings have been held bi-monthly, and a social party given annually at the First Reformed Church, Salisbury. The group has conducted prayer meetings in the city and at different churches and it has done a vital service in rendering services to the prisoners of the Rowan Chain Gang. In conclusion, as to the Campus, the Band has furnished student leaders, and several of the Band have exemplified the goodwill attitude and have affiled a spiritual atmosphere about those with whom it lives Page One Hundred Set 29 1 m rU «3S fflfflj yafflffi a i isi THE PIONEER Editor-in-Chief Business Manager James H.

Its pur- pose is to stimulate interest in Physical Education and also to bind together those who are most interested in this field of work. Meetings are held bi-monthly in the gymnasium club room, where a business session is held followed by an interesting program. The many phy- sical education problems are brought up for discussion also. Each fall the members of the club carefully select from twelve to fifteen girls to become new members. These new girls are carefully trained by the older members to become leaders on our campus as well as in our department. The leading physical activities for women and the social events of the campus are usually sponsored by this club.

Professor Harold Phillips is the pioneer head and can feel proud of the fruits which his labors have brought forth. He is a most capable teacher of organ and piano, and is an efficient master of his music classes. His co-worker is Miss Grace Goodykoontz who is the excellent supervisor of the voice department. Her wonderful personality has drawn many students into the other musical departments, as well as the vocal depart- ment. Because of a great love for music there came, in the preson of Mr. Arthur Rich, an assistant to Professor Phillips both in the instruction of piano and at the head of a fine course in Public School Music. Many people are cooperating in promoting our interests for the welfare of the music profession, and as a result, another music building has been added to the college buildings. This has increased the department in all of its various phases. Regular bi-monthly recitals are given in the presence of the music faculty and students. These recitals consist of vocal and instrumental numbers. There is a final recital in May to which the public is cordially invited. This is a big event in the college calendar, and is looked forward to with eagerness by all. The music organizations are proof enough that music is an important item in life ' s make-up. The successful Glee Club, under the direction of Professor Phillips, makes annual tours and has many engagements to fulfill. The Symphony Orchestra organized by Mr. Rich is rapidly developing, and has been broadcastiryg because of it accomplished musical talent. It has rendered the services at manv college functions, and is proving its worth to the fullest. We also have a music club which is the means of encouraging higher scholarship in music among the students. This club meets bi- monthly, and presents varied and excellent programs. Although recently organized, it is growing in membership and represents the true meaning of the word music. The summer course in music is an aid in giving students and teachers further work in music which will tend to give them a degree in music. This instruction can be obtained either in Public School Work or private lessons. Many take advantage of Catawba College ' s Summer Course and the faculty excels in its abundant knowledge of the art. There are two sessions during the summer, at which time the opportunity is open to all. High ranking and an understanding of music is the means of its gaining a foothold upon the masses. The emphasizing of this great art by the music department is increasing not only its own department, but Catawba College to a considerable extent. Let us put forth our effort and hasten the grading of Catawba College as a Conservatory because of the growth in its field of music. Wwm ffil Page One Hundred Eleven 3P29 [Ml ' 9fo Swastika.

Gray Katherine French The Home Economics Club was only organized this year, but it has been set firmly on its feet by a few enthusiastic members with the help of Miss Gray and Miss French. The Club was organized to enable girls who are majoring in Home Economics to get together and discuss such problems as may arise. Freshmen are rot taken in until after the second semester begins. This is done because it enables them to have time to decide on their course. Just before last Christmas, the Club decided that they needed money for various things, so they had a bazaar. The clothing department helped by donating their time in making Christmas gifts, which were sold. The foods department donated their time by making cakes, candies and jellies.

It did not take his winning: ways long to win over the hoys. He immediately demonstrated that he knew his business by putting out a winning football team. " Coach " has won a place in the hearts of all who know him. Especially is he idolized by the men who have spent long hours on the field and in the gym under his expert tutelage. " Coach " comes from Missouri, so you ' ve got to show him that you are the best man before you play on his teams. He is fair and square with all. He is a good loser as well as a good winner. The best tribute to Mr. Davis may be found in these words: " He is a Christian gentleman. " Brucile L. Phillips Director Physical Education for Women During her second year at Catawba Miss Phillips has greatly increased her popu- larity as Physical Director of the young ladies of our institution. Her tumbling team is a credit to any instructor. Truly, Miss Phillips has worked wonders in her stay at Catawba. She has plenty of pep and ability to make a hit with the girls and to teach them numberless stunts. As well as being a teacher, Miss Phillips is a confidante and real friend of every- body. She is an all around good sport and fits into any occasion, any time, anywhere. She believes in action as well as talk ' ng, so when she speaks the weaker sex of of our institution snap into it.

Catawba received the opening kick-off and reeled off two first downs in succession. On an attempted line buck the ball was fumbled. An alert Mars Hill end picked up the abounding pigskin and reeled off 6 5 yards for a touchdown. Up until the last minute of play the game was played in midfield with Catawba holding the edge in first downs, nine to five. A long pass, Bruce to Rumfeldt, gave the Lions their final score. Both attempts at extra points were blocked. The great defensive work of " Red " Aycock and the playing of Ryan and Gabriel stood out for Catawba. A. C. C ' s SCALP BROUGHT HOME In one of the hardest fought games ever played in Wilson, North Carolina, the Cataw- ba Indians bested the Christians 7 to 3. The game was a great defensive scrap on the part of both teams. It was a battle between the two lines from start to finish. A. C. C ' s line was a shade the best, but the presence of " Red " Whitener and " Red " Aycock behind the Catawba line made things quite even. Late in the second quarter, " Red " Whitener recovered a fumble on the ten yard lir,e and stumbled to the two yard line. From this point of vantage, " Chick " Miller took one try at right tackle and went over. " Chick " made the extra point from placement. A. C. came back with a rush in the second half. With Munn leading the offensive they battled their way to Catawba ' s 2 5 yard line. Here the Indians stopped them. From this point Munn booted a beautiful field goal. Munn was the loser ' s star, while Fesperman, Miller, Aycock and Whitener were best for the locals. Page One Hundred Twenty-seven ' 29 rti rt! r ft! g£ , Swast ika » Finch Boone Gabriel Fesperman Ryan EXTRA POINT BEATS ELON The unerring toe of " Chick " Miller was the margin of Catawba ' s win over Elon. This extra point came after Catawba ' s first score. Elon started with a rush and ere the first quarter was over they had pushed over a tally. Try for point failed. Again in the second quarter Elon rose to the heights and scored. Their try for point was blocked. The Indians retaliated in the second quarter and with Miller and Fesperman leading the attack scored and made good the extra point. Not to be outdone, _ Kitty Finch, " Andy " Rader and " Redheads " Kesler and Aycock produced the winning touchdown early in the third quarter. During this drive the scrappy Indian line was tearing great holes in the heavier Elon line. ' .. The game ended just as Catawba had stopped Elon dead on the two yard line tor four successive downs. MILLIGAN BOWS TO CATAWBA 13 TO Playing at night and in the rain to boot, Catawba ' s grid machine worked as a football . team should and came off a mud-soaked field with the right end of a thirteen to nothing ' ' " ' Kitty " Finch started things with a 65 yard return of a punt. A few line plays and a pass put the ball on the two yard stripe. Aycock went over and Miller circled left end for the extra point. A few moments later Gabriel blocked a punt and, recovering, went 25 yards for a touchdown. Quoting " Tobe " Edwards, Milligan coach: " Catawba showed East Tennessee the hard- est driving set of backs and the best line ever to represent a little college in that part of the country. " Milligan put up a beautiful scrap, but they were out-fought and out- played all the way through. IBS Page One Hundred Twenty-eig ht m ™l ft! ffil Swastika Miller Canup SUMMERSETT Fletcher Smith BATTLE LENOIR-RHYNE TO A SCORELESS TIE In the second home game of the season the Indians fought the Bears to a draw. Five times during the afternoon Lenoir-Rhyne rose to the occasion and stopped the hard driving Blue and White team when it threatened to score. Catawba clearly outplayed her opponent but the scoring punch was lacking when most needed. Lenoir-RJiyne never threatened. The Indian defense was too strong. " Chick " Miller got loose for a 70 yard run and what looked like a sure tally but a speedy Bear overhauled him and it was all off. The great work of both teams on the defensive was the outstanding feature of the engagement. TROUNCED BY ERSKINE With eight men ruled ineligible by S. I. A. A. rules, Catawba was thoroughly trounced by the Erskine Seceders. The South Carolinians seemed to gain when and where they wanted to through the line, around the ends, and through the air. Most of their scores came as the results of long, accurate forward passes that the Catawba backs just couldn ' t seem to reach. Tho the whole Erskine team played jam-up football while the Indians seemed to be in quite a daze. Aycock scored Catawba ' s lone touchdown in the third quarter. Frazier played a good game at tackle. The rest of the team fought, but they just didn ' t seem to be there The final score was 45 to 7.

Catawba kicked off to Wingate and held them for downs. Wingate punted and Catawba marched 70 yards for a touchdown. Not considering the game lost, Wingate did some marching of their own and scored a touchdown plus the extra point. On the kick-off that followed, " Red " Kesler picked up perfect interference and ran 80 yards for Catawba ' s second touchdown. i Late in the last quarter, Jones intercepted a Catawba pass and knocked off 95 yards for a score. Wingate lead 13-12. With six minutes left in the game the Indians bowed their necks and drove 60 yards for the winning tally. CHAMPIONSHIP OF LITTLE SIX DROPPED TO GUILFORD In a bitterly contested struggle, before a Homecoming Crowd, Catawba and Guilford battled it out for the title of the " Little Six " . Guilford won 7-0. Two 15 yard penalties in succession gave the Quakers a first down on the three yard line and Cheek went over on the fourth try. Cheek kicked the extra point. During the remainder of the game the Indians played rings around the Quakers. No less than five times was Catawba inside the 15 yard line, but the scoring punch was lacking. . , , At the opening of the second half Miller returned the kick-off 80 long yards before he was caught from behind by Moore on the 10 yard line. This game marked the final appearance of Captain " Red " Aycock, " Chick " Miller, " Clown " Ryan,, " Diddle " Gabriel, Roy Frazier, and " Ike " Boone.

CARPENTER. WHITENER, THE SEASON Tackling the hardest schedule ever attempted by a Catawba Basketball team, the Indian Basketeers came through the season with quite a bit of success. Nine games were won and thirteen lost. Considering the calibre of the teams met, this record is not to be scoffed at. Getting off to a slow start with a new system, the Indians got going in mid-season. On.ce going, this club mowed down opposition with regularity, and was a tough nut for the best of them to crack. The last games of the season were played against the best teams met during the year. Miller, Everhart, White and Finch did most of the scoring, with Carpenter, Kesler, Safnt, Fletcher, and Whitener playing second fiddle in swishing them through the hoop. All of these men played steady, consistent basketball throughout the season. Eight of these nine men will return next year to fight it out for the varsity berths. Miller is the only one who will be missing when the call of the hard wood is heard next year. oQ sfels ii 1 IS] Page One Hundred Thirty-three P591 IS1 Iffi fc, Swast ika.

Five were won and ten were lost, while three were rained out. Three games were dropped by the margin of one run, while two went into extra innings before they were lost. " Archie " White was the work horse of the pitching staff. He worked in nine games, winning four and losing four. " Archie " pitched eight full games and relieved in one Weak hitting and erratic fielding lost most of the games. One day the club would look like a million dollars, while the next day you would hardly think it was the same ball club. " Hube " Deal lead the team in hitting with an average well above the select .400 mark. " Chick " Miller was also above the .400 mark but was a few points behind Deal. The close of the baseball season marked the close of Flake Laird ' s coaching days at Catawba. The club played it ' s best game as a final tribute to him, but lost it after a twelve inning struggle with the Guilford Quakers. The score was 2-1. Captain Farmer was the only man to finish his career with the Guilford game, and things look good for a good club in ' 29. LU HI Pave One Hundred Thirty-six w [SI ffi 1 s - f - Fesperman Boone r yan Smith BASEBALL PROSPECTS FOR 1929 The crack of bat against horse-hide is resounding as we go to press. Eight veterans are returning and a fine lookirg bunch of youngsters are out there to give them trou- ble in holding down their jobs for another season. Captain Miller is back at first; Smith is back at second; Safrit at short, and Ryan at third, finish out the veteran infield. Finch will be in the outfield again. White, Boone, and Fesperman will again ascend the mound for pitching duties. Captain Miller may also be counted on to win a few games from the mound. The way things look now we are in for the best season of baseball that we have ever enjoyed. The club can field and bit that old apple plenty good. Anybody that crosses bats with the Indians during the ' 29 season will have their hands full. We are looking for a majority of wins this season and believe there are enough hits in the old war clubs to put these games on the right side of the book.

Davis Captain Manager - Coach As we go to press the Track Club has only been out a short time. Some of the mate- rial at hand looks plenty good, while some looks fair. With only three letter men returning, there is plenty of room for men of ability. This is the first year that the track team has had the benefit of a coach, and while we do not pred.ct any feats worthy of Olympic notice we do believe that the team will show marked improvement over the ones of the past. Meets are being scheduled with the best that the smaller colleges of the state have to offer. Though these meets may not be placed in the win column, our oppos.fon w ll know they have been through a tough scrap. The letter men returning are Captain Fletcher, Aycock, and C. W. Warhck. Wtth these men as nucleus, Coach Davis gives promise of developing a cinder team of no mean ability.
