a ins an Wills Hall, the "athletes' abode" located at the northeast side of the campus, is a white frame structure which houses about thirty-two men. Even though students continually predict that "a strong wind will blow Wills away", 'the building is still clinging to its foundations. Strong bonds of friendship exist among the occupants of Wills, and they are as clannish as the Hatfields or the McCoys, although they do not have the same bloodthirsty customs. Nevertheless, a spirit of loyalty and co-operation not only unites the boys socially. but in group activities and intramural athletic competition as well. The many good-natured jokes about the not-too-substantial structure of Wills Hall, and the good humor of its occupants concerning their "home-away-from-home", are a definite part of campus life. Bridge At Givens ivens an The exterior of the smaller of Central's two women's dormitories resembles an average home, with the exception of the large black letters on the front which give the name of the first graduate of Howard-Payne College, Mary Kring Givens. A living room on the first floor, complete with a fire- place, sofa, easy chairs and tables, and attractive bedrooms on both floors make Givens a real home for about fifteen women students. Because Givens Hall does not contain a dining room, the girls brave the elements and make the mad dash from their home to Howard-Payne for their meals. In spite of such inconveniences as this, the Givens girls remain strongly attached to their foster home. Its small size and cheerful, home-like atmosphere make it a pleasant residence for women.

Il UPPIJ The building on the campus that resembles an English country home is McMurry Hall, the dormi- tory for men. Boys who are deaf fare better than those with sensitive hearing here, and light sleepers have resorted to cotton ear plugs to 'escape some of the noise. Several games of skill are popular at the dormitory-bowling down the long cement halls at coke bottles, dropping bags of water from second or third floor windows upon unsuspecting classmates below. Firecrackers, too, are favorite playthings of Central men. Also, McMurry is generally the start- ing place for all the "no school tomorrow" carn- paigns. ' , The front yard of McMurry Hall in the fall and spring seems to be a community recreation center. A few men try their hand at golf, some play base- ball, while others compete in determined but friendly touch football games. McMurry has a functioning governmental system. composed of elected student representatives, in co- operation with the dean of men. Although McMurry Hall may be a wild house occasionally, it does have its quiet moments, too. lt is generally aqgreed TCI! one year of living in McMurry is a practi al les on in sociology, worth much more than a six hour course in the subject.

, ,V A I J 1.115-f.'a'.ai- PCII'll'lOC Clll Brannock Hall, the first building to be constructed on the campus, is now the administrative heart of Central College. All college business, local and national, finds its beginning in this building. The President and the Dean have their offices in Brannock, and contact with all graduates is made through the busy alumni office. The school treasurer, the bookkeeping office, the director of admissions lnew students' first acquaintancel, and the foreboding office of the registrar are also a part of Brarmock Hall. The home of Central's yearbook, the Raqout and its newspaper, the Cen- tral Collegian, is on the third floor. The art department shares this floor with the Student Publications and art students, clad in color-dotted clothes, carry that certain "Li if' aroma of turpentine and paint around with them at all times. Sociology, journalism, business law, and a variety of other subjects are taught in Brannock, as well as all business courses. Brarmock Hall, the administration building and the heart of the many branches of the whole school, has received the honor of being placed on the official seal of the College.
