Graduation. . . G RADUATION week begins Sunday, May 23, with the preaching of the Baccalaureate Sermon by Reverend Umphrey Lee, Dean of Vanderbilt ' s School of Religion, and runs its usual course of Alumni, faculty, and student luncheons, concerts, garden parties, and so forth, until the final exercises on Wednesday, May 26. Then, in an atmosphere tense with excitement and anticipation, music is played, an address by Gov. Richard Leche is rendered, degrees are conferred, the Alma Mater is sung, a benediction is offered, and IT ' S ALL OVER. And what are the thoughts of the graduates who have been so rudely booted out into the cold, cruel world? The GTaduaiing Class has many mernoiies to cherish. Most lecent addition to this pleasant-memory chest is the new gym . . . The graduation ceremonies, with those digniiied- but-internally-hot caps and gowns . . . The natural beauty o( the campus . . . Meditations on the future, exempliiied by Cailleieau in the library . . . The endless, but enjoy- able, march to and Irom classes . . .

Let ' s see what this here " social hie " is, whadda you say? . . . What ' s this? Ah! KoUege Kapers Kuties primp in private (?). No wonder they won . . . Boddie, Boddie and WiUis, property managers par-excellence get busy between acts . . . Looks like the whole cast is in a jitter, but the show must go on! . . . Better get your shirt on, McCord, the curtain ' s going up . . . Now what? Yes, the olhcers of the new Cen Coe Club. Purpose — social exclusiveness . . . The Yon- copin stall ' s entrants in the beauty sweepsteaks, and every one a winna! (Pardon us — number one a winna!) . . . Grigsby grins as V. Doyle pulls a lucky ticket at the laughable LoUypop Hop . . . Now what? Is Fido dead? No. Fido is a gay dog, but he just can ' t take it. He ' s merely reclining in that position while catching up on the sleep he lost last night — even as you and I!

The well- worn path ham Arts Building-to-Chapel and Chapel-to-Arts Building . . . and Commencement In the four years (maybe five or six) of their sojourn here, they have hved and learned and just now gotten to like the place. As green and goggle-eyed freshmen, they scurried through their first year, trying to keep in good with all, and not to look as low in the scale of life as they felt. As domineering Sophs, they became " big shot conscious " and were almost as insufferable as the new crop of first year studes. As apathetic Juniors, they fooled away their third year — blase, bored, and indifferent, or so they tried to be. Finally, as wor- ried Seniors grimly facing a tough comprehensive, they battled through the last long year, and now they ' re through. No more will the seven minute bell interrupt their slumbers and send them hustling off to the next class. No more wi ll they pause to watch the columns swaying in the breeze and predict that sobriety will be the first to fall. No more will they stand entranced in front of the bulletin board, which bears printed notices cordially inviting them to meet the Absence Committee for failure to meet the Absence Committee for cutting Chapel. No more will they pound up the steep slopes from South Hall, or slosh through the muddy parking lot, or march joyfully off to Chapel on a lovely Spring day; no more, alas, no more. And so it ends. They come and go, but Centenary serenely continues, good for another hundred years or so.
