HISTORY of the SENIOR CLASS Would some Rip Van Winkle, returning from a sleep of many years recognize the men and women who walk across the platform this June of 1928, as the same boys and girls who had entered Centenary so long before? Would he see in the poised young lady, proud now of her degree, any resemblance to the rather scared little flapper who, four years ago, had tried to hide her lack of ease and ignorance with an acquired mask of unconcern and shallow laughter? Would he see in this in- telligent young man, whose appearance upon the platform is the signal for unrestrained applause, traces of that unhappy young freshman, whose assumed sophistication failed to hide homesickness and timidity? By some slow evolution Centenary College has made these transformations. By unremitting toil, a bit here, a touch there, the rough stone of each new student has been cut and chiseled and polished, so that the true value of the gem begins to bleam through the rough outer coat of timidity, narrowness and ignorance. That long ago first year was the hardest. The faculty sensed rather than saw the possibilities beneath the surface of each freshman. The shaping process was begun. Many, un- fortunately, could not see the purpose of all the painful chipping and grinding. Their places were eagerly filled by those whose foresight was more keen. The process continued. Two years, then three, and on into the fourth. The chipping had become a steady grinding. The rough stones were taking form. The faculty has put aside its tools and straightened its back for one last look at its latest collection of gems. To its critical eye, there may be a flaw here and there, but to outsiders the polishing has been a remarkable success. There are gleams of fire in this specimen unsuspected four years ago. This gem has shown wonderful color, that remarkable clearness. The polishing is far from complete. Only contact with the world will perfect and shape each facet. But Centenary has begun the process. It has been for her to reveal the obscure qualities that make one gem superior to another. Each stone cue has been yet another jewel for her adornment. May none gleam mor ebrightly than those of our own class. Emily Dean Odom, ' 28.
