Ixadlt Loni tfS As firmly entwined with Centenary tradition arc the creamy Yoncopins, the College flower, and the coral bedecked redbud trees. In them is em- bodied the charm and elusive loveliness of the South. Their fragrance and delicate glory scent the faded records of the College, keeping awake the dreams and hopes of those who walked the memory laden campus in the dim and distant past. Pure while heads reared to the sky. the four white Columns stand facing the hustle of a mod- ern city. Like aged Gentlemen they are revered veterans of a glorious ye?terday. Equally integral parts of Centenary are Marvin Gibson and " Brother " S. L. Riggs. Both former students of Centenary, they are a part of it in thought and action. S. L.

Its voice is muted, yet eloquent with tales of that which has been. Inscribed with historical letters and worn by time and weather, the Corner Stone rests on the campus of a New Centenary, wrapped in its halo of wisdom. It hears the laughter and worries of a new generation and seems to smile in remin- iscence of another generation, which discussed its troubles and joys around it. " Founded 1825 ' " stands engraved upon it, in honor-demanding proof of veneration. From the Foundation of Alma Mater S. L. Riggs and the Historic Col umns Join the Old and the New
