The four years work in college. The world must know just how to run; The lore is gained, the task begun. And in the work there ' ll be some fun. All due to richer knowledge. Big jobs to get with wages high Will be rewarded bye and bye; ' Twill be a wondrous, sunny sky. Soon after commencement day. No more trouble to haunt the days; Nights full of joy like summer lays; No more problems that vex or daze. When these ideals take full sway. Work has been hard and labor tough. But by those means, knowledge enough From lectures, books and all such stuff Will make the world quit fighting. Now is the time that this world needs Something new to replace old creeds. And all to practice doing deeds To stop the world backbiting. No breaks, no flaws, no sign of breach Within the structure—but to teach Will bring all things within the reach And keep the world a-learning. No more heartaches, no need to cry; Success at once will greet the eye. With no need for another try. And the world keeps on turning. —Roy B.

SMALL COLLEGE As my sojourn at the East Tennessee State Teachers College is drawing to a close, the much discussed question comes to my mind: which is better, the large or the small college? I realize that as I come in contact with people who are of the higher type, who are really sincere and have the welfare of their children at heart, who are broadminded, eager to hear the right for the betterment, not only of their children, but of society in general, it makes me want to express my views on this question. I realize that the large university seems rath¬ er grand with its stately buildings in all their dignity towering above the campus, and its so¬ cial functions seem enticing. But travel on to our own small school, (small in only one sense) on a beautiful spring morning, to view the pic¬ turesque campus with its attractive and efficient¬ ly equipped buildings, which fairly speak a wel¬ come to us, but these factors in all their glory are not the outstanding qualities of our school. To find these we must go to the very heart of our school, its administration. In the large university would you find the President a real friend, one to whom you might carry your problems, one with whom you would feel like sitting down and talking, and be sure of the kindest and most willing consideration? I ' m afraid not. Space will not permit me to mention each of our faculty, but just to show the real spirit of our institution may I mention a few? Is our beloved Dean or our efficient Registrar ever too busy to have you present your case? TTiey give their verdicts in ever-patient, kind, and considerate ways, even when they should be busy in much more important work of their own. Then to think of the wonderful inspiration given by our most efficient geography instruc¬ tor, who has not only inspired us to be a real geography teacher (as she is) but also to be a world traveler, making our teaching a real live something. And not only does she impart to us knowledge and inspiration, but that which is per¬ haps the greatest something of all, the feeling that somehow she cares whether we win or lose. Who but the always composed, smiling, help¬ ful, sincere and capable Mrs. Earnest could grace the Home Economics department so efficiently? What a reassuring feeling her confidence gives one and how it inspires one to prove worthy of her faith! Then let ' s not forget Prof. Bible who always has the students ' interests first, and Prof. Mathes whom everyone loves; and let ' s not forget Dr. Wheeler, for without him we would fail to under¬ stand each other. In the small institution this personal feeling, this feeling of real friendship exists, and the possibility of just ‘ ' getting by is less since the teacher knows each student individually and gives the student confidence, courage, and inspiration. Now, aside from the feeling existing between the faculty and students we must consider the student body alone. In the small school everyone is known, thus creating and cultivating more school spirit and love among the students. After considering both kinds of institutions,, don ' t you believe you like ours better? LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT We, the seniors of State Teachers College of the year 1932-33, realizing that the time for our departure from this institution of learning is swiftly approaching, desire to brighten the path and lighten the load of the oncoming pursuers of knowledge by leaving all of our valuable posses¬ sions at the disposal of those who follow in our footsteps and do hereby draw up this, our last will and testament. SECTION I Item 1. To our parents and friends who have permitted us to spend these happy days of prep¬ aration at State Teachers College, we bequeath our most sincere thanks and deepest appreciation. Item IL To our dear Alma Mater we leave a multitude of fond memories of the days spent here in both toil and pleasure. Item III. To the faculty we bequeath our love and esteem, with the assurance that not all of their labor has been fruitless. Item IV. To the student body of the year 1933-34 we bequeath our school spirit, our obedi¬ ence to the rules and regulations of the school, our serious purpose in study, and the realization of our many opportunities. Item V. To Dr. Sherrod and Dean Burleson we bequeath our love, admiration, and respect. Item VI. To the senior class of ' 34 we wish to will all our extraordinary intellectual abilities, our outstanding ability to overcome difficulties, our high scholastic standing, and all other exces¬ sive virtues. SECTION II Item I. Earl Sams reluctantly wills his versa¬ tility in making public announcements and speech¬ es to Frank Hawkins. Item II. Kegley Graves leaves his everlasting abihty to argue and “his girls to the care of Jack Swan, knowing that Jack will endeavor to love each one equally. Item III. Red Carr bequeaths with much re¬ gret to the future female inmates of said institu¬ tion her sole and inherent (the perfect) right to sit in any of the Administration Building windows they desire, allowing them to watch the busy, changing scenes that take place between classes. Item IV. Isa Lee Sherrod bequeaths with pleasure her rate of speed used in getting to class almost on time to one most needful of it— Virginia McCorkle. Item V. Roy Ledwell leaves his unfinished June 2, 1933 THE CHALK LINE 25 athletic career to Tom Howze, knowing that Tom will ' ' carry on’ ' . Item VI. George Fox wishes his scholastic record to be divided equally between the follow¬ ing: Alyne Smelcer, Agnes Musick, Harry Shull, Paul Nicely, Mary Laws, and Ralph Barkley. Item VII. Bessie McNees wishes to bequeath her unusual artistic ability to Martha Prater. Item VIII. Gertrude Huggins wishes to will her quiet, easy manner to Margaret Brabson, hoping that she will make as good use of it as possible. Item IX. To Wilma Been Sherrod Lib Lacy wills her deadly fear of Mr. Rogers’ history class. Item X. Josephine Divine gladly bequeaths her musical ability to Mr. Jake Seaton. Item XI. Bertha Hundley wishes Emily Lacy to take and use wisely her cooking talent. Item XII. Bill Cox leaves his headaches that have made his many excused absences possible, to Mr. Robert Grindstaff. Item XIII. Joe Ridenour thinks it unfair to carry his unusual speaking ability out in the world, and he requests that Charles Keener be its future custodian. Item XIV. Since Bill Belew is aspiring to a stage career, Frank Hoss wishes to assure his success by leaving at his disposal an unusual musical and dramatic ability. Item XV. Rose Garvin bequeaths to Monte Shull her ability to dream of certain fair damsels. Item XVI. Winnie Legge bequeaths her gift of speech to Hope Davis. Item XVII. Connie Maloney bequeaths her tact used in getting by the Dean to Dean Bailey. Item XVIII. The Senior Class, as a whole, be¬ queaths that Miss Mathews place all our excessive A’s in the archives of the museum. Item XIX. The Senior girls gladly grant to the girls of ’34 the unusual privileges which have been so graciously bestowed upon us, namely: keeping on lights after 11:00 o’clock, missing meals, going to town in cars, dating every night, and staying out of chapel. Item XX. We do hereby appoint the rising Junior Class as sole executioner of this last will and testament, giving, in reward for their efforts, the never-dying gratitude of the immortal spirit of the class of ’33. Given under our hand and seal this, the eighteenth day of May, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-three. CLASS OF ’33 (Seal) Elizabeth Lacy, Testator.

FACULTY-SENIOR BREAKFAST Could anyone tell the meaning of that group of sleepy-eyed people out in front of the Main Building on Monday morning ? It looked as though about all the faculty and seniors were present. One by one they gathered, yawning. stretching, riding, and hiking. Yes, you guessed it! Seniors and faculty. It certainly was thoughtful of the faculty to disturb our sleep at such an hour. Maybe they thought that they would get to go by themselves but we fooled them! It was a real thrill to see Mr. Bible, Rogers, Mathes, Dr. Sherrod, and the rest of them—you all know them—working. Mr. Vance was the of¬ ficial wood-chopper; he could hit more of his senior guests in the head with chips than any one else. For fear that there was some senior present, that had been transferred from another school, the faculty decorated themselves with dainty lit¬ tle breakfast caps of pastel shades. These little caps were especiallly becoming to Dr. Field and Mr. Bible, along with the other bald-headed mem¬ bers of the faculty. Oh, yes, and, we demanded that they pose for a snap shot to be used on the front page of the Chalk Line. If it is good enough we may have one enlarged, tinted and framed for the museum. For the benefit of the Fresh¬ men, ni explain the meaning of museum. It is a part of a building for a collection of natural, scientific, or literary curiosities or objects of in¬ terest, or of works of art. Now you check any one of the above when you have seen the pic¬ tures. It was a great satisfaction to have Miss Yoakley, Mrs. Earnest, Dr. Wheeler, etc., waiting on us. We did not fail to keep them busy either. Mr. Alexander achieved perfection at scram¬ bling eggs and frying bacon. Coach was a very good waiter, too, but Dean Burleson served with more ease and grace, I believe. Feature the Training School teachers bothering themselves long enough to serve us. Well, they did, and how? The menu, oh boy! Just all the good things that can be imagined for an outdoor breakfast. We might suggest that our coffee be hot the next time, that is, if there is a next time. Horse Cove was an ideal spot. The mud was just right to make mud pies and stick to our shoes. We are so glad that we did not have to ankle out there. Some of the Seniors really thought Dr. Sherrod meant for us to walk. I, as a member of the Senior class, want to say for all the class—eighty-nine—thanks for the delightful breakfast; we thoroughly enjoyed it all. STUDENT’S SOLILOQUAY Break, break, break At the foot of thy crags, 0 sea! But if you should break for a thousand years You’d never get broke like me. When a bunch of girls get together, pity the first to leave.

I am only one, but still I am one; I cannot do something and because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something I can do. We may not all be lucky enough to get posi¬ tions as soon as we graduate so let ' s make the best of it wherever we go. June the second our school days end in holi¬ day ; friends must part and journeys start to new adventures far away. Some of us may get mar¬ ried and that will be a new type of experience while others may enter the teaching profession for life. Just because we have a college degree under our arm is no sign we know all there is to know; in fact, we have just completed another chapter of our lives. We must realize that we don ' t know anything. We are just one among many. Let ' s live to learn and remember we never get too old to learn. Our school days have been happy ones. We have formed many friendships here that will last forever. The teachers have all been so kind and good to us. Yes, they have made us work, but it was for our own benefit. Now, they won ' t ‘‘flunk us maybe as we are so near graduation. We seniors soon will all be parted; And each will enter into life ' s game; We ' ll all strive hard to be worthy; Of our dear Alma Mater ' s name! DO YOU KNOW? Lois Atchley tap-dancing?

Do you know that if one does not have some life principles himself, no one will have any for him? That one can say yes to the crowd more easily than he can say no? That one only has a true friend by being true to him? That everyone treats a king handsomely, but it is only a gentleman who is courteous to a beg¬ gar?

June 2, 1933 THE CHALK LINE 27 28 THE CHALK LINE June 2, 1933 ATHLETICS FOOTBALL BASEBALL The major sports program was taken over this year by Coach McMurray. Football camps started September 13th with a motley crew as¬ sembling. Many of last year ' s squad were absent but this loss was in a measure adjusted by the presence of many new faces. By the first of school these two elements had been made into enough of a team to beat Union. Improvement through¬ out the remainder of the season was steady. For the first time in four years the final list of wins and loses balanced in the black instead of the red. Good sportsmanship and confidence character¬ ized the season. The squad loses only two men through graduation and with a number of good prospects coming in the outlook for next year is brighter than the poetic June day. Coach has already expressed his confidence in the 1933 team by making the hardest schedule ever attempted by this school. It ' s all up to the boys. Let ' s fight, boys! Those lettering this year are: Sevier Sabin, captain; Masengill, McCall, Bailey, captain-elect ' 33; Seaton, Musick, Shull, Wayman, Taylor, Hunt, Brown, Belew, Peterson, Hyder, manager; Ledwell, and Waller. BASKETBALL The basketball season ' s prospects were good from the start with a team of lettermen from the preceding year back and enthusiasm carried over from football. Even before the football season was over some were practicing basketball. By the end of the season the results spoke for themselves. Teachers had second place in the Smoky Mountain Conference. The victories as compared to defeats was such that there is a positive danger of spoiling the grandstand. Be¬ sides the actual winning and losing the whole season was marked by a spirit of enthusiasm, confidence, and good sportsmanship which is more to be desired than winning. With graduation taking only one man, the 1934 squad is out to trade the place of second in the conference for first place. Those lettering in basketball for 1933 are: Lynn Masengill, Bill Shearer, Harvey Boyd McCall, Dean Bailey, Jacob Marion Seaton, Archie Hoss, Charles W. Crouch, Kegley Graves, manager. Masengill: ‘‘Good night—sleep tight. Wilma D.: “I never drink. Spring saw a revival of outdoor sports. Quite a large number reported for spring football and much interest was shown, but the center of the stage of athletic interest was reclaimed by its ancient king, baseball. The squad reported as early as the weather permitted. The first of the season, although not without its victories, proved unsatisfctory to Coach, who did something to his team (no one knows what) that brought them out of the kinks and brought the season ' s games as a whole out of the red. TTie number of games played and trips taken was larger than ever. Those lettering for 1933 are: Sams, Billie Hunt, Seaton, McCall, A. Hoss, Chambers, Nicely, Bailey, Shull, Kilday, Taylor, Miller, and Crouch, manager. The season as whole this year was probably the best athletic year in the college ' s history. The amount of games played, the number won, the number of students going out, the backing for teams by the student body, the confidence, en¬ thusiasm, and spirit of the school and the teams all prove this statement and make the outlook for the future bright. INTRAMURAL ATHLETICS Girls’ athletics have been very successful this year with more than 300 entries. The heads of various sports were Virginia McCorkle, Norene Mitchell, Nell Keys, Mabel Arrants, Wilma Dean Sherrod, and Ruth Myers. The winners in the tournaments were: ping-pong. Ruby Vestal; vol¬ ley ball, freshmen; basketball, sophomores and seniors; foul shooting, Hannah W. Masengill, Wilma Dean Sherrod, Isa Lee Sherrod, Martha Foster; tryouts, Lucy Keys, Pauline Bailey, Verna Bacon, Martha Foster; croquet, Evelyn McCray; horseshoes, Margaret Deakins; golf, Sara Har- villle; baseball, freshmen and seniors; tennis, Josephine Cloninger (singles), Isa Lee and Wilma Dean Sherrod (doubles). The awards for the year are: T. C. monogram, Martha Foster, Pauline Bailey, Verna Bacon, Beulah Yoakum, Hazel Delozier, Pauline Webb, Hannah W. Massengill, Minnie Bray, Eva Bray; “T sweater, Virginia McCorkle, Ruth Myers, Nell Keys, Josephine Davidson, Alyne Smelcer, Wilma Dean Sherrod. “T blanket, Sara Harville, Norene Mitchell, Mabel Arrants, Isa Lee Sherrod. Miller Bray: “There are two types of co-eds. The type that can get any man she likes, and type that likes any man she can get. June 2, 1933 THE CHALK LINE 29 BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT FOR HIGH SCHOOLS The State Teachers College again sponsored the Annual District Basketball Tournament for high schools. The tournament was held at the close of the basketball season in February and was open to all high school teams for boys and girls of the district which includes five counties of East Tennessee. Players and enthusiasts came to the meet from many miles out of Johnson City, showing there was a wide-spread interest in this annual tourney. Friendliness, cooperation, good sportsmanship, and courtesy was manifested on all sides. In the boys ' tournament Boones Creek played Bristol; Boones Creek were victors. In the girls ' tournament Bluff City defeated Elizabethton for the championship. COLLEGE WOMEN’S PLAY DAY One of the most unique and interesting activi¬ ties of the Spring Quarter was the East Tennessee College Women ' s Play Day that was held here on May 20, with the Women ' s Physcial Education and Intramural Departments as joint hostesses. This was the third Play Day to be held for college women of East Tennessee. The idea for Play Day grew out of the need for college girls to learn to associate with strange groups and in the group give the best of their ability to the group team. The activities that are carried on in a Play Day program require no necessary training or skill. The events of this Play Day were: bas¬ ketball, baseball, volley ball, kick ball, archery, tennis, hors eshoes, and relays. The visiting teams for the occasion were rep¬ resenting Milligan, Carson-Newman, Virginia In¬ terment, Middle Tennessee Teachers College, East Tennessee Teachers College, Peabody, Mary¬ ville, and University of Tennessee. A program that was both instructive and in¬ teresting was drawn up and carried out under the direction of: Mrs. Helen Smith, Gladys Carr, Mabel Arrants, Norene Mitchell, Isa Lee Sherrod, Virginia McCorkle, Nelle Keys, and Jo Chapman. CHANGES I’VE SEEN DURING LAST TEN YEARS AT TEACHERS COLLEGE I have been teaching for ten years and have also been going to the Teachers College in sum¬ mers and on Saturdays during this time. Now I have finished the required work and am receiving my B. S. degree. To do this requires hard work, system, and above all, love for your work. I have observed many changes and feel that I have been a part of the college all this time. I entered the dormitory the first summer 1923. At that time there were no such conveniences as they have now; however, we had a good time and studied. The Library was in one room in the Administration Building; it was crowded and the volumes of books were limited. The Science de¬ partment would not begin to compare with the one today. The gymnasium was in the Admin¬ istration Building and it can be imagined how small it was. The Athletic Field was not in ex¬ istence. The Cafeteria was small and was like an old-time boarding house. There was no Man¬ ual Arts Building. The Campus was not as well kept and not nearly so extensive. The Training School was small and crowded, and there was no Boys ' Dormitory at all; the boys stayed in nearby homes. Many members of the faculty are still here, and they, too, have changed, keeping up with the times, modern methods of teaching, and social changes. Also, there are many new mem¬ bers. Everything has progressed and improved, and thus it has been a pleasure to have been a part of the great growth and stride forward of dear old Teachers College.—T. D. JUNIOR - SENIOR THEATER PARTY The Juniors of the College were hosts Mon¬ day night. May 22nd to the Senior Class with a theater party at the Majestic Theater, where they saw the picture ‘‘White Sister , starring Helen Hayes and Clark Gable. Following the show the entire Senior and Junior classes, numbering one hundred and fifty, were served delicious strawberry sundae and home-made cakes at the Chocolate Bar. The school colors of blue and gold were carried out. Music was furnished by Hope Davis, Elizabeth Grigsby, and Frank Hoss. This was a most enjoyable affair. REWARD FOR A NAME Suppose we should take the trunk of Ridenour, the arms and legs of Grindstaff, the head of Sabin, set with the eyes of Graves; the glasses of Chase, the ears of Coe, and the hair of Beers; and clothe this being with the coat of McKamey, the trous¬ ers of Shull, the socks of Dew, the shoes of Dal¬ ton ; arm him with the cheek of Cox, the smile of Ham, the laugh of Graybeal; crown him with the knowledge of Sams, the tastes of Reed, the silence of Ledwell and the voice of Perry coupled with the expression of Dickens, and then, well, what would we name the baby? She has asked me Would I help her With her Latin, ' Twas so hard Would I help her learn to conjugate That ole verb ‘Disco ' . Pretty lips so near So tempting Tended strongly to beguile ‘Didicissem ' ? I should smile. 30 THE CHALK LINE June 2, 1933 June 2, 1933 THE CHALK LINE 31 •n - - p “Society, Clubs, and Organizations” □ , . ... . .. ■ — E Y. W. C. A. We feel that our Y. W. C. A. is doing more good on our campus than any other organization. Eain or shine the Y. W. C. A. program and ser¬ vice take place every Wednesday evening at 6:30 o ' clock, and every girl is cordially invited to be¬ come a member. We also function in a financial way by selling candy in the Y. W. C. A. store in the basement of the Administration Building. This store brings us a nice little profit, and every cent goes back to the campus. A few of the things we have bought are: Baby Grand piano, radio, kitchen outfit including hot-plates and cooking utensils, a tea urn, and silver and Chinaware for the dormi¬ tory. Also, each year we contribute $100 to the Student Loan Fund of the college. The cabinet this year has done an outstand¬ ing piece of work in directing the Y. W. C. A. on our campus. SMOKY MOUNTAIN SCIENCE CLUB The Smoky Mountain Science club came out of its long period of dormacy in the Fall quarter and elected the following officers: President—Ralph Mathes. Vice-President—LaVerne Graybeal. The purpose of this club is chiefly to promote a deep interest and genuine appreciation for the entire field of science. Some of the outstanding programs for the year were as follows: (1) A Glass Blowing exhibition given by Mr. Peter Schupt of the American Glanzstoff corpora¬ tion. (2) An address on ‘‘Cellulose given by Mr. Julius C. Funcke of the American Glanzstoff Corporation, and an odor recognition test con¬ ducted by the club president. (3) A demonstration of “The Theory and Practice of Motion Picture Projection , given by Ralph Mathes. ART CLUB It ' s not the oldest organization on the campus that always proves most beneficial! Thus says the school ' s youngest college club. The Art Club has made some outstanding contributions to the college—assumed the arrangement of the bulle¬ tin boards; secured worth while art displays and exhibits for the college; made comprehensive studies of Italian artists and their contributions. The officers elected for the next year are: President—Inez Ketron. Vice-President—Beatrice Earnest. Secretary and Treasurer—Ruth Rutledge. THE “T” CLUB WENT OVER WITH A BIG YEAR Interest was manifested from the first of the football season when it became apparent that the crop of freshmen prospects promised more than the average potentualities for promoting that type of merriment produced by initiations foot¬ ball furnished eligible new members in the forms of Wayman, Taylor, Miller, Musick, and Shull. It was decided to let those lettering in tennis also be eligible, so William Grigsby and Curtis Reed swelled the list. Basketball lacked in producing a large num¬ ber, so Graves and Shearer were forced to suffer for their own fewness. The “T Club is for those who have shown enough interest in the school to stick to some sport long enough to letter in it. It is hoped it will function increasingly better all the time. The man on whom next year ' s success or failure rests is Dean Bailey, president of the “T Club. Kilday, Chambers, and Bill Hunt earned the letter in baseball, while Spears, Oaks, Puckett, and F. Hoss won the award for tennis. SAPPHONIAN LITERARY SOCIETY We, the members of the Sapphonian Literary Society, think we have “scaled the heights this year. Our year was started off right under the able leadership of Mrs. Shaberg. Some of the most outstanding and most enjoyable heights have been as follows: Initiation days for new members in the Fall quarter, and their termination in a house party. “Pill and Capsule week—this began when each member drew a capsule containing some society member ' s name; this member was secretly well treated for the week, and the pill ' s identity was not divulged until the end of the week at a Christmas party. A Luncheon given by Pi Sigs to our society. A Sapphonian, Rose Wilson, was elected as Pi Sigma Carnival Queen. Tea dances, house parties, theater parties, and worthwhile studies at the regular meetings of famous Tennesseans and composers. Officers for the next year are: President—Hazel Anderson. Vice-President—Beulah Reece. Secretary—Katherine Gilbert. Treasurer—Betty Bristol. She came, she saw, she conquered. But I was not her foe, I came, I saw, was conquered And now I am her beau. 32 THE CHALK LINE June 2, 1933 THE PESTALOZZIAN LITERARY SOCIETY A most unusual interest in the Men’s Literary Society has existed this year, due in a great part to the enthusiastic leadership of Mr. Alexander, Mr. McMurray, and Mr. Hope, as well as to the changed manners of conducting programs. Soon after the opening of the Fall quarter new officers were elected, and the society was divided into three groups with each group having a faculty adviser. The society, in order that the reading of cur¬ rent literature might be made possible, subscribed and placed in the dormitory ten of the leading magazines and two daily papers. GLEE CLUBS MAKE PROGRESS The Glee Clubs have worked hard and have given many successful programs this year. The work of the fall quarter centered around a concert. It was presented just before Christ¬ mas to a large and appreciative audience. During the period of drill for the concert, the girls ap¬ peared in two programs, one being at Elizabeth- ton, and the other at the Soldiers Home. The boys gave a program at High School and Junior High School of Johnson City. In the winter concentration was placed on an oratoria. ' The Crucifixion” was given to bene¬ fit the Health Unit of the Community Chest Fund. This event was sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Johnson City. An operetta Maid in Japan” was presented May 19, this climaxing the work for the spring quarter. Many students have shown outstanding ability. Those receiving the Silver Award were: Lois Atchley, Beatrice Earnest, Alyne Smelcer, Jake Seaton, Earl Sams, Eleanor Lucas, Wilma Dean Sherrod, Gustave Von Hoffe, Henry Way- caster, Juanita Graves, and Francis Everette. Those receiving a Gold Award were: Dean Bailey, Kegley Graves, Josephine Davidson, Isa Lee Sherrod, Joe Worley, Evangeline Walker, Vir¬ ginia McCorkle, Josephine Divine, Frank Hoss, and Curtis Reed. R. F. K. P. This is one organization of the Royal Force of Kitchen Police, and is composed of those en¬ ergetic souls who convert their energies to ser¬ vice to the Cafeteria. Each quarter Mrs. Hodges, the Cafeteria manager, takes this Royal Force on a picnic or party, and judging from all appearances it is one of the most popular, most active, and most highly hilarious groups on the campus. Lois Atchley: Do you love me still?” Bill Hunt: I might if you’d stay still long enough.” PI SIGMA CALENDAR Sept. 27, ’33—Registration. Pi Sigs use keen eye to detect new members.

In the far West to¬ ward the gold and yellow edged clouds could be heard the low rumble of the grinding drive-wheels of a late coal drag loaded with tons of black dia¬ mond coal. The blasts of the coarse whistle echoed and re-echoed upward through the dark, damp hollows, following the heavy timbered ridges to the hot, fern, and pine-covered cliffs of Buffalo Mountain, and there slowly spreading and dying away among the fleecy clouds of the Heavens. High up in the evening sky, the bull-bats cry and plunge suddenly downward with its bellowing note as it snaps up some belated bug or fly on its homeward way thru the dusky evening sky, while below the bull-bats, a flock of birds twitter as they zip by going to roost among the campus shrubbery and evergreens. Mingling with these sounds from the sky, and from the west comes the slow, gentle and sonor¬ ous striking of the Soldiers Home clock. Coming up from the peppermint scented marshes and through the downy willows, the jar- fly ' s song adds a resonant, grating sound that blends with the other sounds of the evening. The air is filled with swarms of insects. Far in the distance, the dark outlines of Hol- ston Mountain are shrouded in ethereal blue which gradually grows darker and darker, while from the low masses of shrubbery on the hill, lying over in the direction of the President ' s home, comes the low, plaintive, love-call of the whippoorwill to its mate. The cool evening wind gently stirs the foliage. Occasionally a lone automobile is driven around the circle of the campus. Twilight fades, and the near ‘‘Red Band sign flashes on at the Model Mill. In the dusk over toward the tennis court, the fireflies flash their lights by ones, twos, threes, and fours, until the whole lea between the drive and the tennis court seems to be alive with their sparks. Darkness settles gradually over the scene, the birds cease to call, and go home to roost. Loneliness and quietness pervades over a de¬ serted campus, save for the lumbering and swish of the bus going around the circle. It is the night before commencement, and a lone Senior walks down the steps of the Admin¬ istration Building and sits on the curbing of the fountain. The scene weaves an enhancement over him. He was a natural lover of nature. It was an hour when the creative thoughts are disturbed and when their potential activities are lowest. It was as if the fountain was giving back to the sky the light, the light it has borrowed. The danc¬ ing reflections on the water had faded. It was an hour when reflective-minded people live over again the pleasant experiences of the past, the loves, the friendships, the games, the problems that seemed so hard, but were easy, the anticipa¬ tions, all were past, and fate had decreed that this senior must go as all other seniors had gone. Change is a law of life, and that law was be¬ ing forcibly and painfully realized by this lone senior who was being urged on to duty, and to the priceless goal of success. A still small voice bade him look away into the dim distance where the Promised Land stretched forth in expansive beauty. Spring promotes growth; summer promotes maturity; and autum brings the beauty of ripe¬ ness, and the lone senior realized that he had reached the summertime of life where the growth started in college must be brought to maturity by facing the problems of life under his untired leadership. Duty calls to the lone senior to go forth, bravely to the battle of life. A soft sighing breeze caresses his brow; faint echoes vibrate gently along the hillsides. A peaceful calm soothes his soul and enchants the voice of the years into a vesper communication, and the strains of “Alma Mater coming from the dormi¬ tory awaken him from his reverie and he takes his last stroll across the campus. —Joe Lynn Sherman.

This neighbor, who hai no time for idleness or visitors, was doing her weekly washing in the basin of her room and for fear she might be disturbed had turned off the light. The two girls. Til not mention their names, ven¬ tured into the dark room, and began having a lovely time. Their voices were pitched very high and laughter was not suppressed in the wrestling match. Suddenly there was a very noticeable quiet¬ ness. The girl who was busy washing turned to see, but no one was in sight, for safely hidden be¬ hind the bed which was pulled out in the middle of the floor, was one girl, the other in bed fast asleep, as it appeared. There was a knock, but from the dark room came no answer. The door opened and a command ' ' Lower your voice girls’ , ended the fun for the night. The peck, peck of a typewriter was heard upon the third floor. Let’s have some fun,” said one girl to the other. The other straightway walked with long firm strides to the door of the room from which the pecking came, and after standing silently for a few minutes she knocked on the door. The pecking ceased and the knock was answered with, Come in”. The door was quietly opened just enough for these words to enter, Did you know you must not make so much noise with that typewriter?” The girls got plenty of exercise getting to first floor, and a great kick from the reply, Well, Mrs. Imboden, you said I could use it.” Following this episode it was made very plain that tattlers in the dormitory are not appreciated. 3 - ■ — E ALUMNI NEWS n — The Editors have sent cards to all the gradu¬ ates of T.
