editorial. Yet I never wrote an editorial dealing with Centenary or matters related to it that didn ' t come from his heart. He would come into the office, plank himself down in the hard chair, tell me something without any explanation of why he told me, and depart. The point is that our own understanding of each other was so complete that neither of us had to explain. Sometimes I ' d call him up and ask a question seemingly unrelated to anything of the moment. He ' d talk for 30 minutes and every word he spoke would be exactly- along the lines of the information I was seeking. During the red-hot fight over college dancing he came in one day, sat on the straight chair, leaned forward, and with his eyes actually glistening, said: " Did you ever stop to think that besides the Holy Trinity, there ' s an earthly trinity? It is made up of the church — regardless of sect — the school and the community. Together they can reach any objective, any ideal. With any one of the three lagging, the other two are helpless. When they fight each other all three are destroyed. When they fight side by side all opposition is destroyed. Think it over. "

Pierce Cline . . . Friend and Philosopher By Don M. Ewing Associate Editor of The Shreveport Times Pierce Cline, Ph.B., M.A., L.L.D 1890— 1943 Pierce Cline was born February 17, 1890, in Waleska, Georgia, the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Wes- ley Cline, and received his early schooling there. His education carried him on to Reinhardt College, Emory University, University of Chicago and Columbia University in New York. He came to Centenary as a professor of history in 1920, became president in 1933, and died on October 25, 1943. In between the dates reams could be written about the many honors accorded him, about his fine achievements for others, about his many noble small deeds as well as his magnificent large ones. None of it would mean half as much as even a fleeting memory of Pierce Cline to those who had the good fortune ocasionally to see inside a mind never quiet and a heart always open. Our friendship was built on respect rather than great length of time. It was carried on chiefly in two ways — over the telephone or with Pierce Cline perched on ( " against " would be a better word) the hard seat of a straight chair at a corner of my desk, which always was so full of rub- bish he had difficulty in finding a place to rest his elbows as he spoke earnest words on matters that were heartfelt with both of us. I don ' t know how many editorials running 500 to 1,000 words each have been written by me from one or two simple little sentences spoken by Pierce Cline. He never asked me to write an Dr. Cline and prominent Shreveporters gather for the opening o the Sexton Memorial Campaign of 1937. Left to right, Dr. M. E. Dodd, Dr. Cline, E. A. Frost, Dr. Westbrook Steele, Bishop Sam Hay, Bishop Hoyt Dobbs, George S. Sexton, Jr., and Arch Haynes.

Physical Education Building w% Dean Hardin, leit, and Dr. Cline, light, as they conferred the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws upon the late E. Weldon Jones in 1940. Visionary — Yet Practical That was all. But from that simple paragraph I wrote a Sunday morning front page editorial appeal to everyone in the church, in the college and in the community to unite in keeping Centenary a college of all religions, all peoples, striving always for the betterment of each branch of that earthly trinity. I don ' t know how much this had to do with the quick ending of the question then at issue, but it was a happy ending — for all. I mention this not only as an insight into Pierce Cline ' s mind and heart, but because, while every word of that editorial was mine, every ideal in it was his. The earthly trinity was his life, his goal — high and hard to reach, yet always kept at eye-
