JORGENSON Proctor East Dormitory ADMINISTRATION BUILDING SIDE VIEW WEST DORMITORY s eLON COLLEGE, situated in Alamance County, N. C, the property of the Southern Christian Convention, is a monument to heroic sacrifice, united effort, and earnest, fervent prayer. It opened its doors to students on September 2, 1890; but that does not represent its beginning. Antecedent to that eventful day were many years of earnest plannmg and assiduous doing, and Elon College as it stands today represents growth, development, life — the period from its incept-on to its actual foundation spreading over twenty-five years. For years pr or to any concerted action or organized effort, the question had fre- quently been asked in local conferences, churches, and the Southern conventions: " Does the Chrstian Church, South, need a college? " In 1870, the Southern Christian Con- vention met in Suffolk, ' a., and through its committee on schools and colleges expressed " the need of an educated ministry and laity, " but failed to recommend the establ sh- ment of a college, because they did not believe " the munificence of our people sufficient to establish an institution on a very large scale, " and because the patronage would not warrant it. In 1874, and again in 1878, this same committee recognized the need of a better educated ministry and laity, and in our own institutions, but still failed to recommend definite plans looking to the establishment of such an institut.on. Thus for twelve years the college idea battled for recognition, and received not even a recommendation. In 1882, things became more hopeful. The need of a college for the Southern Christians, which should carry on to the baccalaureate degrees the work then being done by the Graham (N. C.) Normal College and the Suffolk (Va.) Collegiate Institute, so long felt, and so often expressed, in this convention, which met in Morrisville, N. C, took definite form in a resolution introduced by the Committee on Schools and Colleges, of which the first of the sixteen articles reads as follows: " That this Convention proceed at once to establish a college at some suitable point within our borders, at which our young men and young women and our candidates for the ministry may be educated, said college, with all its appurtenances, to be owned by the stockholders — said stock may be taken by indi- viduals, churches, or other associat ons, and shall entitle the persons holding or legally rep- resenting the same to one vote for each share in all the meetings of the stockholders. " An amendment to the report provided that when the general soliciting agent should have secured subscr ptions of stock to the amount of ten thousand dollars, the stockholders should meet and locate the college. The position of soliciting agent was tendered Dr. D. A. Long, for many years co-principal of the Graham Normal College, and since President of Antioch College, Ohio, and of Union Christian College, Indiana. The movement failed, because it was not the work of the whole church, and appealed only to investors, who know that colleges are objects of charity, and never pay dividends. This defeat dampened the ardor of the advocates of a college for the jo nt educa- tion of laity and ministry, but did not weaken the firm belief of the convention in the necessity of an educated ministry. Accordingly, when the convention met in I 886. w:th Mount Auburn Church, Warren County, N. C, it addressed itself to the matter of pro- viding a department of Theology in one of the already-existing institutions of the church. The resolution introduced by the Committee on Schools and Colleges was, " That this convention establish a Theological Department in one of the schools now under the man- agement of our people, and that the convention elect some suitable person to take charge of the same as instructor, and that the convention raise four hundred dollars to purchase books for the said department for the year I 887, and two hundred dollars annually there- after. " Dr. W. W. Staley, Suffolk, Va., was chosen as instructor, and the Suffolk Collegiate Institute as the school. But the committee on schools and colleges was not satisfied with this arrangement. In their view, it was not adequate to the demands of the church. Nothing less than a college for the joint education of ministry and laity, on the co-educational plan, would satisfy them. They set to work to the realization of that end. After careful investiga- tion and prayerful discrimination, this committee, composed of Dr. W. S. Long, chairman; Dr. J. P. Barrett, Secretary: Rev. J. W. Holt, Dr. J. U. Newman (by request), and Mr. J. W. Harden, met on June 10, 1887, at Graham, N. C, and leased the Graham Normal College of that place. In the next year, 1 888, the Southern Convention met at Graham in extraordinary session, and ratified this temporary action on the part of its Educational Committee. By taking this summary action, the committee had demonstrated the feasibility of a college for the Christians, South. Success assured, the Conventon at this extraordinary session, after hearing offers of land and money from Burlington, Graham, Gibsonville, Greensboro, and Mill Point (the present Elon College), all in North Carolina, appointed a comm ' ttee to select a location, erect suitable buildings, and get a charter from the State within whose bounds it should be located. The provisional Board in whose hands these matters were placed was made up of Dr. W. S. Long, president; Dr. J. P. Barrett, secretary; F. O. Moring, treasurer; J. H. Harden and Dr. G. S. Watson. Trustees for the college were also named as follows: For two years — E. A. Moffitt. Asheboro, N. C. ; J. M. Smith, Milton, N C. : I. H. Harden, Big Falls, N. C. ; F. O. Moring, Raleigh, N. C. ; S. P. Read, Palmer Springs, Va. For four years — E. T. Pearce, News Ferry, Va. ; W. J. Lee, Bennett Creek, Va. ; P. J. kernodle, Suffolk, Va. : J. F. West, Waverly, Va. ; E. E. Holland, Suffolk, Va. For six years— Rev. W. W. Staley, Suffolk, Va. ; Rev. J. W. Wellons, Franklinton, N. C. ; Rev. W. S. Long, Graham, N. C. ; Dr. G. S. Watson, Union Ridge, N. C. ; Rev. M. L. Hurley, Franklin, Va. Dr. J. P. Barrett was elected financial agent, but resigned because of his heavy duties as Editor of The Christian Sun, and Dr. W. S. Long was appomted in his place. This extraordinary session at Graham was a record-making gathering for the cause of education among the Christians, South. Here it was definitely decided to build a college, to be the gift to the church of the people of the Southern Christian Church, not the property of stockholders. In this movement, the hearts of all the people melted under the leadership of Dr. W. S. Long, Dr. W. W. Staley, Dr. J. P. Barrett, and the other able men whose names appear on the Provisional Board above and among those first fifteen honored trustees. There was no mistaking now. The college was to be built, and it was to be the college of the Christians. Enthusiasm was high, the tide was taken at its flood, the result is beautiful, inspiring to contemplate — Elon College, a glorious and blessed institution, the pride of a denomination, with a past to be grateful for, a present full of vigor and glow, and a future of hopefulness and promise. -c: The convention adjourned September 1 4, 1 888. The Provisional Board visited in person all the places proposed as possible locations, and on December 20, 1 888, decided to locate it at Mill Point, the present Elon College, seventeen miles east of Greens- boro. The campus, contam ' ng twenty-hve acres, now one of the most beautiful in the South, was then a dense grove of oaks, whence the name Elon, the Hebrew word for oak grove. This land, and twenty-three acres additional, was given by W. H. Trollinger, Haw River, N. C, while the citizens of the community subscribed four thousand dollars. The first cash donation to the college was by Mr. J. P. Bland, Pittsboro, N. C. The first subscription was by Dr. W. S. Long. The first public appeal for money was made at Berea, Nansemond County, Va., January 16, 1889, and resulted in the raising of $636.05, two hundred and fifty dollars of which was contributed by W. J. Lee, Bennett Creek, ' ' a., who has been a trustee since the foundation of the College. The General Assembly of North Carolina chartered the college March 11,1 889. May 7, of the same year, the first shovel of dirt was dug for the foundation of the main building, and May 20 the first brick was laid. The college opened its doors to students September 2, 1890. The location of Elon College is ideal. The climate is the best North Carolina can give. It IS on the Southern Railway, and easily accessible to Greensboro and Raleigh, and yet far enough removed from these cities to insure the necessary peace and quiet. Visitors to the place are at once impressed by the beauty and charm of the location. It is pre-em-nently a college town. There are no industries here. This largely accounts for the high moral tone for which the inst tution and its students are famous. Having authorized the build ng of the college, the Southern Christian Convention (become biennial instead of quadrennial since the extraordinary session at Graham) proceeded to care for its creation. In 1 890, the convention met at Suffolk, and beside? negotiating a loan of four thousand dollars to complete the walls of the college build ' ngs. authorized the appointment of Rev. W. T. Herndon in place of Dr. W. S. Long, who had now become Elon ' s first president, as financial agent, and appealed to its const tuents for contributions; and by the year 1894 these contributions had reached $30,215.14. In 1892, the convention met at Elon College, and 1894, 1896, 1893 respectively at Norfolk. Va., Burlington, N. C and Raleigh, N. C in each instance making generous provision for the College. The convention m Raleigh ( 1 898) is noteworthy for its creation of an eighteen hundred dollar annual income for the College from the Con- ferences, which is equivalent to an endowment of forty-five thousand dollars at four per cent., with absolutely no chance for loss or decline in values, and is thus much better than an endowment. The convent on of 1900, wh ' ch met at Franklin, Va., authorized the raising of twelve thousand dollars as a Twentieth Century Fund for the College. The originator of this movement, and one of its chief promoters, was Dr. E. L. Moflitt, then Editor of The Christian Sun, later Elon ' s third president. The Committee in charge of this trust was Rev. W. C. Wicker, Dr. E. L. Moffitt, and Col. J. F. West. To Colonel West in a large measure belongs the credit of having actively raised this fund, for he was secretary of the committee. The convention of 1902, at Asheboro. N. C, and 1904, at Berea, Nansemond County, Va., endorsed the action of the Raleigh (1898) Convention in asking the Con- ferences to pay their pro rata part of eighteen thousand dollars annually for the College. Fifteen The Portsmouth (Va.) Convention, 1914, increased this annual call to $2,250, and authorized a note drawing four per cent, interest to be given the College, the interest on vvhich shall be paid by this fund. This convention also provided for Elon College Rally Days in all the Churches, at which voluntary offerings shall be taken for the establishment of a Department of Theology in the College. In 1911, a Special Fund of fifty thousand dollars was completed, which placed the College on its feet financially as it had never been before. In 1913, the Alumni set about raising a fund of $26,600 to pay for the Alumni Building, so named because of their generous response to .Alma Mater ' s needs. The physical equipment of the College consists now of seven buildings. The build- ings are valued, with the grounds and their equipment, by expert assessors, at three hundred thousand dollars, and consist of the Administration Building (1890); the East Dormitory (1890); the West Dormitory (1907); the Central Power Station (1907); the Young Men ' s Cooperative Hall (1912); the Alumm Building (1913); and the Young Lad ' es ' Cooperative Hall (1913). Elon has had four presidents. The first was Dr. W. S. Long (1890-94), the founder, the man of large faith and indomitable energy. Dr. W. W. Staley ( 1 894- 1905), succeeded him. For eleven years he served as non-resident president, w!th Dr. J. U. Newman as dean for nine years, and Dr. J. O. Atkinson for two, directing the institution ' s development along the steady Imes of financial integrity and solid scholarship. He left the College with a substantial student-body, a capable faculty, free from debt, and with a considerable endowment — days they of sending the roots deep into the soil preparatory to more rapid progress soon to follow. Those days of larger outlook came under the third president. Dr. E. L. Moffitt (1905-11), and have continued unabated up to this present time. Dr. Moffitt ' s efforts gave the College an increased student- body and two additional buildings, w th many minor improvements. During his term of office, steam heating, electric lighting, sewer, and bath facilities were prov ' ded. The most recent items of special noteworthiness, aside from the erection of new buildings, have been the improvements in the library, the laboratories, the departmental studios, including thirteen piano? for practice and a concert grand piano for the Music Department, and the facilit ' es for physical culture and exercise. The College has two gymnasia, and its recognition in athletic events has been startlingly gratifying. Increased enrollment has naturally come, and this year the four hundred mark has been reached, which is the College ' s capacty. The most gratifying item, however, has been the develop- ment along religious lines. The College pastorship is largely responsible for this, though the various voluntary associat ' ons have had a large place in the generation of the splendid spiritual tone that characterizes the institution throughout. A great compliment was paid our College at Chicago, the fourteenth of January this year, when Elon was admitted as a standard College to membership in the Association of American Colleges. Dean W. P. Lawrence represented the College on this auspicious occasion. I think I may confidently state, with the facts of her glorious quarter-century achieve- ments before me, that the future was never brighter for Elon, because her friends were never so true and numerous nor her faculty and Alumni and students more devoted, loyal, and sympathetic. — President W.

Its interpretation may vary according to the tongue A and timbre of the indixiduah But differences of interpretation only argue the persistency, not the lack, of the prevailing spirit. It may not be defined, because it is without Hmitations in power, in resources, and in activity. It may m a measure be described, as the artist with brush and color brings out the figures, fancies, and forms of his own mind and soul. The first definite coloring is that of a certain fellowship born of freedom. The atmosphere of the forest, fields, and hills is more wholesome and fragrant than that of a cell or cloister or convent. The former is nature ' s free and abundant gift. The latter is stifled, hindered, unnatural. Is it because boys and girls, men and women, are perm tted to meet and mingle here in pursuit of truth and the noble arts, according to the most sen- sible and natural manner in all the world, that such fellowship and freedom pervade the atmosphere at Elon? The Father of all wisdom gave sons and daughters to the same home — to live, to labor, and to learn. There, in the same home, as in no other atmosphere, is born and is nurtured the spirit of real liberty, the feeling of real friend- ship, that shapes the destinies of great states and molds the character of men and measures which really count in the world. The Elon spirit, as all well know, and as many have so often observed, is that of the family, the fireside, with all the treasured freedom, fragrance, and fondness that the term implies. The family feeling obtains in a most marked measure — that wherein each seeks the comfort and rejoices in the triumph of the other. The second coloring is that of loyalty, born not of l arge prom se and gliltermg reward, but of sacrifice, service, and unselfish endeavor. Elon was never a rich man ' s college. So it is not equipped with habiliments of ease, luxury, and indulgence. There are such comforts and conveniences as the rich may require, and the poor use to advan- tage in making character; but merit alone is that which counts — in curriculum, com- munity, and conduct. Loyalty — born of sacrifice, nurtured of individual endeavor, wherein great and small are on equal but none too lavish a footing, is an obvious, vigorous, and vital part of the Elon spirit. Twenty-Seven The brightest, and withal the most inviting coloring is that of moral tint and hue. The highest and best morals are in no wise unfriendly to liberality in opinion, freedom in conduct, and progressiveness in attitude, but on the contrary foster and give impetus to all three. The Elon spirit is and ever has been highly and intensely moral, with all the hope, buoyancy, and bounty that the word implies. This morality is the outcome of the broadest and most liberal spirit of Christianity, because of which the institution was founded, and by which, from the beginning, it has been fostered. " Christian Educa- tion ' is the ideal ever sought after here; that culture, that refinement, and that scholar- ship which seek to make men and women unselfish in their plans, benevolent in their pur- suits, and grateful in their possessions. No one has ever felt or interpreted aright the Elon spirit who has not realized in it a power that seeketh not for her own, but compels one to look to the honor, the integrity, the valor, and the victory of another. This is the high unselfishness that the Carpenter of Nazareth wrought and taught, and which is giving Elon men and women places of usefulness, influence, and efficiency wherever they go, and in whatever station they are found. A spirit which makes for freedom born of friendship, for a loyalty born of sacrifice and merited of virtue, a morality inherent in and reflecting the life of the Nazarene; broad, liberal, sweet, and profound, this is the Elon spirit which so many have felt and none who have come within its scope can escape. — J. O. Atkinson d Pa®wltai M G O PAGE can hold a thousand cheers Enhanced with fervor true; No power can tell what in four years We ' ve learned to think of you. Four years ago, when we first came, Untutored and untaught; When we were new at life ' s old game, Unseeking and unsought; We trusted new-born hopes with thee. But could not give our heart; We felt that with our minds you ' d be Willing to do your part. B ' jt ere the first year had gone by We gave both heart and mind. And on your love we did rely And on your lessons kind. When hearts were sick for friend and home, Your words would win us back; Where trials did up against us come Your aid ne ' er did we lack. Four years together we have been; We ' ve learned to love your work; And in these years we ' ve never seen A task that you would shirk. We can but hope to say farewell In these few hnes above; Bui we will take the coming years And write it all in Love. COLLEGE AUDITORIUM ALUMNI BUILDING Thirty )g2r. it.

Dur- ing his stay in college he has won the reputation of being an " independent " thinker, and has dis- tinguished himself as one who stands alone. He does not cater to public approval at the sacrifice of his personal convictions, but on the contrary rather wishes to be known as one who dis- agrees with all those who are " not in a position to know.

And spuriousness spurn. —Poet Forty-Fi ' CZX S®nl®r l®ss Hisi@rf IN HISTORY , there are two important events that cannot be erased from our memory; the one was the landing of Columbus at San Salvador, October 12, 1 492, the other, the result of which concerns us more directly, occurred Sep- tember 3, 1911, and marks the landing of our Class as Freshmen at Elon College. When Columbus stepped on shore, he planted the cross, and took possession of the country in the name of the King and Queen of Spain; when the Freshman Class landed at Elon in 1911, it d.d not plant the cross, nor take possesion of the place; but, on the contrary, was taken possession of by the Senior Class, and made, in the name of the Faculty, to come across. Columbus made four voyages to the New World; we have made trips for four years to Elon. On the first voyage of Colun:bus, h!s crew threatened to throw him overboard and turn back; we encountered no such difficulties on our first journey to Elon, but, on the first examination, some of us narrowly escaped falling overboard and being set back. This unexpected peril startled us. When we had recovered from the shock, and our nervous systems had become normal, the fact had been duly impressed upon our minds that, if we met the requirements here, life at Elon would be no holiday, but would demand the best within us. Consequently we set to work with a determ nation " to do and to be. " Our constant association m the classroom made us mutual sympathizers, and engendered a common inspiration and feeling of loyalty toward each other. We, believing that " in unity there is strength, " met in the reception-hall of West Dormitory, and were duly organized, electing a full corps of officers, selecting for our class colors green and old gold, and adopting for our motto " Lahore et Honore. " In doing this, we thrust upon ourselves the honor of being the first organized Freshman class in the his- tory of the College. This bold venture amazed the upper classes, and dignified the name Freshman. No more were taunts hurled at us, but henceforth we were left unmolested to reap the pleasures and benefits of college life. As we review our four years ' work, we do not feel humiliated. Our class will doubt- less compare favorably with any that has preceded us. We have held our own in the classroom, on the athletic field, in the Literary Societies, and, in fact, in every phase of Forty-Six :! college life. Our orators have ranked among the best. Many of our members have filled, with credit to themselves and honor to their Class, the various offices in the different organizations of the College. We do not claim to have excelled in athletics, but we have been well represented on the Varsity teams even from our Freshman year, and, though our Class teams have not always been winners, they put have put up hard fights. Our athletic victories, our high grades of scholarship, our honors won in debate — they do not signify the best results during our college course; we have herewith a firmer pur- pose, a greater ambition, a broader vision, and loftier ideals. The influence of our Alma Mater will become a living power within us, and urge us on like an inspiration. How large these four years of privilege seem as we look back upon them! We have learned to know and value one another; we have formed friendships, the worth of which cannot be estimated; we have shared our pleasures; and together we have read to the end of the long chapter of opportunities. But the last hour has struck. And so, parting with a cordial welcome for those who shall come after us, let us say: Cod Bless our Alma Maier and our Class. — Historian fc " HE days of astrology, alchemy, and natural philosophy have passed. The day of false m k prophets is no more. Today is the day of science and invention. Recognizing that there m W was no other way to divine the future of the present illustrious Senior Class of Elon College. 1 myself have individually invented a machine for the obtaining of knowledge about the future, whose secrets are much desired by all the Seniors and their friends. This machine is in the form of a film-record, which being placed on a specially designed apparatus portrays and gives expression to the operator the future of anyone whom he may desire. These films are developed by a solution of one part discretion, two parts of the milk of human kindness, one part variation, three parts of the ingredients of love mingled with taffy and soft expressions, and sixteen parts of superhuman confidence. With such paraphernalia, it is utterly impossible that I should err in the discovery of the future of my beloved classmates. And now I will start the reel rolling and the record revolving, and to you, the privileged few, is given the opportunity and advantage of hearing and seeing these marvelous episodes and events just as they appear to me on the canvas — and as 1 am best able to tell you about them. The dates are also given on the film. I— W. D. LOY, 1919 In this year we see our President, the changeable " DuNC, " still at his old occupation of flirting. Having become tired of all his old girls, he falls desperately in love with a Boston actress, who kicks him, and as a broken-hearted preacher he plods his weary way flirting for revenge on the feminine species. II— D. F. PARSONS, 1926 Mr. Parsons has become a mathematical acrobat. We see him sliding down the tangent to the ellipse which is formed by the revolving of Halley ' s comet about the Elon College tower. In other words, he is Elon ' s Math. Professor, and is creditably filling the position. Trigonometry is his favorite subject. Ill— F. M. AYCOCK, 1916 In this year, Frank went to Richmond to take his medical course, but became discouraged and entered the jewelry busmess in Harrisonburg, Va. Then, " when he had found one Pearle of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it. " IV— lONE McCAULEY, 1919 The live wire of our Class has become wealthy, and renowned as the best in her profession, that of a manicuring artist. She believes that she will never be married, taking great delight as she does in playmg hands with unmarried men. V— W. J. COTTEN, 1920 Our valedictorian, the bashful Willie, has become bankrupt through speculation and gambling. He sees the attractive and wealthy manicurist. Miss lone McCauley, and his heart immediately becomes set upon winning her fortune and her hand. To this end he exhausts his supply of Cupidian darts, and fatally wounds the affectionate chamber of her heart — much against her better judgment. She becomes Mrs. W. J., and thereafter they live a happy and contented life together. Forty- Eight VI— S. S. MYRICK. 1918 BlLLlE becomes dissatisfied with his missionary calling, and starts out sellmg Saturday Evening Posts in his Ford. He rakes in more money each week than the President of the United States, as he never slops to give change, but goes on his ay rejoicing. VII— L. V. FOGLEMAN, 1922 Standing on the streets of New ' ork was an immense crowd, watching the newsboard of the NcTjt Yor! Times as it reported the prize6ght of L. W. Fogleman vs. Jack Johnson. Mr. Fogleman was the last " white hope, " and when it was reported that he had knocked out the negro the crowd went wild with joy. VIII and IX— PEARLE JONES and R. K. HANCOCK. 1917 These two lovers were married immediately after graduation, as was expected by all. For twelve months they lived a miserable life together. It seemed that nothing the affectionate Pearle could do would satisfy the inexorable Bob. His meals were never cooked right; his clothes were never like he wished them; in short, he was unable to be suited, and the only thing for PearLE to do was to get a divorce. Then she took up charity work, and was earnestly devoted to it for the rest of her life. Hancock took up the calling of a political calamity howler, for which nature had greatly endowed him. X— J. V. KNIGHT, 1915 Immediately after graduation. Knight fell that he could not leave Elon and her sacred memories. He asked Dr. Harper for a professor ' s job, and became so loving and affectionate to the President that he was offered the only position open — Professor of Arithmetic. This he instantly accepted, and creditably filled for ten years or more. XI— M. C. BARBEE, 1917 Disappointed in love, discredited in financial circles, disgruntled in all respects. M. C. accepted a position as a lightning-rod agent. To get revenge, he cursed his earnings, and gave them to the suffrage cause. XII— V. C. PURCELL, 1922 Mr. Booker T. Washington, learning of Bill ' s great works among the colored brethren, formed a great friendship for our classmate, and sent him as a missionary to Africa on a salary of $25,000 per year. There he is beloved of all the natives, as also is his wife, formerly Miss Eva Aldridge. XIII— W. C. MORGAN, 1924 MoLLIE inherited a large fortune from his uncle, and immediately became a glutton. His dinner table was filled with every good thing imaginable, and he drank as much sack as old Jack Fal- staff, whose likeness he very much resembled. He lived at Sebrell, Va, Every day at dinner he said, Grace " Pass me more pie and more sack Fill the place between my front and back. " XIV— J. L. FARMER, 1928 John taught school for one year, farmed two, and then discovered that he was bom to be a leader of men. Accordingly, he married Miss Helen Brinkley, and entered politics. He was a successful slump orator, and at the above indicated date was elected Governor of Virginia. There he was a most popular Governor, and in the mansion Mrs. Farmer was most charming in the role of first lady of the Old Dominion. Forty-Nine XV— OMA UTLEY. 1916 After having trusted for these many years the frivolous Jack, Oma at last awakened to the fact that he had proven false. He had tried every way to break the promises made to her, and to loosen the hold of her affections, but had failed. Then in desperation he married a gypsy, and departed for parts unknown.

KELLUM. 1930 Becoming tired of teaching, Ike took onto athletics, and was elected as basket-ball coach of Harvard University. One night while directing his team in the Yale-Harvard game, he was struck by the ball as it fell through the basket for the winning goal in the last three seconds of play — having poked his topknot under to see whether the sphere came through or not. A concussion of the brain resulted. He lingered for several days on the borderland, and then departed to the realm of the dead.

XIX— S. B. McCAULEY, 1925 Bruce started out as a dancing master, and made a considerable little pile of money in this profession. Then he went upon the stock exchange, and by 1925 had become king of Wail Street. He hardly ever spoke but that dollars flowed into his open mouth. No one hardly ever spoke to him unless they brought him money. He was a veritable Midas, with a touch of gold. XX and XXI— O. D. POYTH RESS and BEATRICE MASON. 1917 In September, 1915, Red and CuTEY went to Georgia to leach in the same school. There each forgot former loves, and because of constant association developed an infatuation for the other which resulted in matrimony. Next year they went to Atlanta, where Red was superintendent of the city schools, and his wife principal of the music department. At night they performed at the Atlanta opera — Red singing. Beatrice playing accompaniment. On Sunday. Red preached at the First Ghrislian Ghurch, and his fair lady made melodious music on the million-dollar reed organ of that church. Thus they are seen lo be effective coworkers in the building up of the cause and the accumu- lating of the kale.

THE Class Fifteen, with full grown wings and a wonderfully developed confi- dence in our Hying ability, are now preparing to soar away to an unknown land, which will be for better or for worse, for life or for death, for eternal bliss or for eternal grief. To those who will remain on this mundane sphere, we, in full posses- sion of sound mind, memory, and understanding, do make and publish this our Last Will and Testa- ment, hereby revoking and making void all former wills at any time heretofore made. As we initiate our flight in chariots of fire, drawn away by a whirlwind, we Faculty attend to the procedure with all the dignity and pomp that our four years spent enjoined upon them to give us. We appoint Dr. Harper sole executor, to carry out our dispositions of the foil which it has pleased Kismet and Endeavor to give unto us: Item One: We donate to the Institution our boundless knowledge, and request for the edification and enlightenment of any and all greenhorns who may follow in our tread Item Two: We grant the Faculty freedom from our r of refusing them. Item Three: We bequeath to the Juniors our Senior D economically as have their immediate predecessors. Item Four: We endow the Sophomore Class with a fund of common sense, with the hope of seeing them start to making use of it at an early date. Item Five: To the Freshman class, we will our hardships and their many consolations. May these inspire them to more constant effort, that they may some day worthily fill our place. Item Six: To the undermentioned we give the following individual material property which we are unable to carry to the other world : M. C. Barbee wills to " Chief Fuller his calculating ability in Calculus and other mathematical branches, his knowledge of the Latin lingo, and his general bluffing acumen, which he has so constantly used throughout his college course, with the confident expectation that ' " Chief " will be able to obtain a diploma in two more years, provided he diligently use the above paraphernalia left to him. Frank M. Aycock wills his illustrative ability to " Uncle Tommy. " on the condition that it be not carried too far. He leaves his architectural ability in designing and inventing such contrivances as blowpipes, panoramic cameras, etc., to Mr. Daniel Humble, to be used for the benefit of all college posterity. Isaac " Jake-ob " Kellum wills all his happy college memories to Miss Ruth Johnson. He leaves his editorial position to the next editor of The Phipsicli, and wishes for him a successful career. Robert — the " Bob " Hancock — leaves his sweet disposition to Mrs. Holland, hoping that she will stop " snapping. " and learn not to make fun of a feller to his own face. Beatrice Mason wills her taffy and soft expressions to Paul V. Parks, and hopes that he will not get " stuck " with it. She wishes to explam that the reason why she did this was her love for red- headed children. E. T. Gotten wills his " Grace " to Uncle Wellons. to use in his " Family Deovtions. " His earnest prayer is that the gift may do much good. Fifty-One W. J. Gotten wills his West Dormitory experiences and their sacred memories to Miss Janie Lee Pritchard, that she may thereby increase her present store. His scholarship he wills to W. R. Hardesty. D. F. Parsons wills his pressing iron, establishment, and trade to Foster Finch, and hopes that he will make and save many precious quarters therewith. " Dunk " Loy wills his good nature, his cheerful disposition and charming personality, and his bewitching truth-like mendacity to Big " Shine " Bradford, that he may the more diligently pursue his newly-chosen course. J. V. Knight wills his powers of melody to Miss Mozelle Moser, that her " Falstaff ' s " dinner may seem the sweeter by her many tunes about the kitchen. Billie Purcell wills his Hippopotamusses (hypocrisy) to " Jackie " Johnson, as he expects the assistant coach to have much need of them in the near future, Hick ' ry-nut Bill Myrick leaves his Ford to Dr. Watson and Uncle Wellons, with the request not to exceed the speed limit. L. W. Foglcman wills his wit and worldly wisdom to Miss Bessie Urquhart, to enable her to better understand men. Bruce McCauley wills his basket-ball skill to the girls ' basket-ball teams. He expects them to put out a winning quint next year. Pattie Preston leaves her generosity and open-hcartedncss to T. Purkins Harwood, and trusts that It wil l enable him to win some fair lady ' s hand and heart. " Mollie " Morgan wills his good looks, Latin jacks, and beautiful penmanship to President W. A. Harper, LL.D. He knows no-one else who needs them so badly. Oma Ulley wills herself to Prof. Jack Johnson; that is, provided he has the nerve to accept of the freewill offering. J. L. Farmer wills his abundant supply of common sense to John Swain, and refers him to the Dean of Women to find out what to do with it, lone McCauley wills her modesty to Miss Elsie Cole, and begs to give the information that it will copiously increase and multiply with use, J. Appius C. Peel wills his boundless affection, as expressed in his planning and scheming ability for the carrying out of charitable works, to Hollis Atkinson, and desires that he utilize it for the benefit of the needy as effectively as it has been during the past four years. Pearle Jones wills her constancy and devotion to all succeeding Elon lovers. Such a precious gift could not be lavished on any single person. " Red " Poythress wills his baseball art to Bernard Cooper. He wills the librarian ' s place to Mr. Brown, and asks that he take as good care of it as has his predecessor, the little lady with black eyes. Any other property rightfully belonging to us, and not mentioned herein, is left to the Institution, to be used as a loan fund for worthy students. In attestation of which we have set our hand and seal, this, the twenty-fifth day of May, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fifteen.

The long-looked-for day had arrived — the day of our dreams and fond anticipations. We were greeted at the station by the professors and old students, with a warm handshake and a hearty welcome. Then began our glorious career of wonderful achievements. When a few weeks had rolled by, we met for organization. Ours was the largest class in the history of the College, up to that time. This added one step to our greatness, and we began in earnest to search for something that would really make our Class great. When the request was made for all who were interested in athletics to be on the field for practice, the Freshmen were there in large numbers. No one knew what the other was capable of doing, but when each took his place, and the games began, we got an impression that our class was IT. The championship in basket-ball was won by us, and we furnished the College with three Varsity men. After a year of toil and devotion to our studies, we returned home to spend a few weeks in leisure and preparation for return. The summer months passed swiftly by, but not too fast for us. The opening days of school found us again at Elon, filled with a vigorous determination to make our second year better than the first. The Class meeting this time found our number much diminished. Only fourteen of our number remained. This year found the Sophomores taking their place on the athletic field and in all the different organizations. No phase of college life was neglected by us. Our debaters in the Freshman-Sophomore debate not only came out victorious, but won honor and fame for themselves. Once again we separated for our various homes. When the August sun had turned into the September of nineteen hundred and fourteen, it found us again at the " Old Oaks. " Again some of our number had fallen by the wayside, but some new members were added till now the Class of ' 1 6 numbers sixteen. Our Class is to represent almost every vocation of life. Not only does it consist of athletes, debaters, and religious workers, but we can boast of the first author in the history of the College. Again we won the laurels in the Junior-Senior debate. We are ever true to our motto: " For Vlclory We Strive. " It was some time in January that we began to plan for the Junior-Senior recep- tion. We look forward to this with much eagerness, for truly we feel honored to have our names associated with the Seniors. But soon another year will have passed, and then we will no longer be considered " under-classmen, " but will have become heirs of that dignity which none but Seniors enjoy. — Historian W2C -c: S@ph®H®r@ Glass Motto: Non Palma Sine Pulvere Flower: Pansy Colors: Purple and Gold OFFICERS Grover B.

For soon we part, and each his own life ' s upward way must trace; Though not as now we arc, for then our little band must sever. Happily some day to meet again, and lay our trophies down together. —Poet S®ph®m®f® Glass HIsIspf » « E returned to the Hill on September 2, 1914, after spending a happy f summer vacation, much delighted to be Sophomores. It was soon seen that a few had perished in the whirlpools and cross-currents of the sea of knowledge, thus leaving the original band somewhat smaller in number. Although we are now in our second year, we can with little trouble remember our first visit to the Hill — how we were treated by the Sophs ; remarkably well consider- ing that we were only Fresh. We got only a few harmless wettings, and we are still wondering how those twenty-pound bags of water that were hurled with such precision from unknown regions above always struck so squarely on our craniums. As we expect in the battle of life, ours has not been a rose-strewn path; but the ability and perseverance that has characterized our Class has enabled us to reach our Sophomore year with one of the largest enrollments of any Sophomore Class that Elon has had in several years. It is not only in numbers, but in quality as well that our Class has proven itself superior. From present indications there will be some oratorical genius among us; for it was none other than a member of this Class that won in the State Collegiate Peace Contest over representatives from all the other colleges in the State last Spring. " There never was another Class like the Class of 1917. " Some have made the mistake of taking this as a doubtful compliment. There is no doubt as to its real meaning. Our Class is well represented in every line of college work. We have members whom we expect to be prominent in the development of our State, and in the cause of humanity. May it be the resolution of every one of us, to become a man or woman in the noblest sense of the word; to ever chensh in our hearts the memory of our Class; and never to do a thing that would reflect aught but honor upon our Alma Mater. If it were not for being Juniors, we should willingly live over a year so full of work and pleasure as this last has been. — Historian Sixty-Nine m S@pi@H@r Wliil lsn§ ISS ATKINSON was asked to define a perfect day.

" Hence, when the opportunity presented itself for coming to i Elon, we, the Freshman Class, took advantage of it, and on September I , 1914, rolled off the trains and took up our abode in this beautiful burg. Indeed we were a bold and daring company. We matriculated with as little fear as we had in eating — not even knowing whether matriculate meant to be disinfected before being allowed entrance, or to be searched for dangerous weapons, or any other thmg for that matter. We were so royally welcomed and treated that our presumption lost account of all bounds, and we assumed that the College was made for us and for us alone. We must admit to being somewhat verdant the first month, but this gradually wore off, and by the time examinations had begun to be talked about we were begin- ning to show signs of enlightenment. We, however, had the mental capacity to recognize that we did not know it all, and immediately manifested unmitigated curiosity concerning all private and personal affairs within the scope of college life, in order to become wise. Our troubles were many, and followed successively one after another: first, homesickness; then, love-sickness; afterwards, Sahbaikus Morbus; and finally our whole Class contracted tremor examinationis. Had we not been made of superior clay, the stram must finally have worn us out; but our will said never give up, and our mind repeated, " There is no royal road to learning. " Having heard that all other Classes m College were organized, we decided to follow suit. At the rollcall, we found that ours was the largest Freshman Class in Elon ' s history. We then elected Mr. E. B. Page as our first president. After transacting many items of important business, and having a jolly good time, we adjourned, every one of us fascinated with the idea that we were part of an organized unity which we thought would become a great factor in college life. We recognize the fact that we are under-classmen, and that we will yet have a long way uphill to pull before the crowning achievement of our career is attained. But fighting by our motto, Puiare est posse, the Class of 1918 looks forward with highest courage and brightest hopes to such a climax of so great a career. We shall be enabled to conquer difficulties and withstand trials by our overmastering spirit of intrepidation and our great love for right, honor, and truth. — Historian j ' -V ; -i : : r ' i ' Eighty-Ori IroM®!!® ©I ' Grace Aldridge Jennie Willis Atkinson Curtis Beam Helen Brinkley Ina Dunlap Lorena Garrett Ruth Hall JUANiTA Hammer Lela Hayworth Esther Jones Erie Laine Gertrude Mason Ida Monroe Grace Orndorff Pattie Preston Janie Lee Pritchard Susie Riddick Annie Rippey i ' a rothgeb Blanche Thomas Grace Trollinger Oma Utley Eunice Wellons Eighty-Four EXPRESSLON CLASS Em wmmMmm Mmm Ina Dunlap Erie Lane LoRENA Garrett Jessie Wampler AzziE Catling Eunice Wellons Lela Havworth Annie L.

Pslpisliaii HIstefF ' J W " " ND it came to pass, in the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and e ' ghty- ■ B eight, that there were gathered together in the to wn of Graham, N. C, r M , many wise men. And they said unto themselves, " there is great need in our land of a college, wherein we may instruct our young men and our young women under positive moral and religious influences. " And they all agreed and said, " Let it be so. " Then they chose five of their wisest men, and commanded them, saying, " Go forth throughout all the land, and seek a place, that we may build thereon. " And when these wise men were come unto a place called Mill Po ' nt, and saw that it was a goodly land, they said, " We will build here. No more shall this place be known as Mill Po nt, but shall be called Elon College henceforth and forever. " And it came to pass, at the end of two full years, that the news spread almost throughout the length and breadth of the land, that all things were in readiness at Elon, and that many men of great understanding were assembled there, willing and anxious to teach all who might come. So in the ninth month and second day of the year eighteen hundred and ninety, a multitude of boys and girls, from the East and from the West, from the North and from the South, gathered themselves together at Elon, eager to receive the instruction of these learned teachers. These students were taught daily, and increased in knowledge. Now in the beginning of the first half of the first year of this college, there was a great yearning in the hearts of all the girls for a Literary Society. This desire grew and waxed strong. Now at this time there dwelt at Elon a teacher, whose wife walked in wisdom and ministered unto many. And it began to be noised abroad that she had great knowledge in Society work. And so the girls went unto her, and questioned her. And when she perceived their great zeal and earnestness, she withheld not her counsel, but declared unto them saying, " I will put the laws of my Society in your mind, and I will write them upon your hearts; and I will be to you a leader, and you shall be to me followers. " After that they were much troubled, saying, " Where shall we meet? " Imme- diately this good woman answered them, and said, " Behold there are many rooms at the place where ye are taught daily; in one of them ye can meet in secret, if ye so desire. " One Hundred Two So on the fifth day of the week, after the going down of the sun, as the darkness began to enshroud the earth, the girls, under the guidance of this noble woman, met at the appointed place. And when they h ad assembled themselves, and the work of organization was in order, one stood up and said, " By what name shall our Society be known? " And all were silent, for none would answer. Then one arose, saying, " There is a teacher at Elon. a man young in years but old in wisdom. Let us go forth and seek him, and he will make known to us a name by which our Society shall be called. " And straightway they all went. And when they had come unto him, they meekly asked, " Wilt thou give us a name for our Society? " And he, seeing in their midst one in whom he was well pleased, received them gladly. And when he had considered for a space of time, he answered and said, " Verily, verily, I say unto you, your Society shall be called Psiphelian, but let not the meaning of this mystic word be revealed, nor the interpretation thereof be made to any save the duly qualified members of your noble and worthy band. " And his words pleased them, and they departed thence, and came unto their meeting place joyfully. Thus like Jonah ' s gourd vine sprang up the Psiphelian Society, but it perisheth neither by night nor by day. For twenty and five years the Psiphelian Society hath lived and flourished. As its members go forth to fight the battles of life, new ones in greater numbers take their places. Each year, at Eastertide, the Psiphelian Enter tainmenl doth manifest to the public the great good the Society hath accomplished. Verily, verily, I say unto you, let not Her powers diminish, but let them go on from strength to strength, onward and upward, till Her influence is felt throughout the length and breadth of the earth. And as a certain wise one of your poets hath well written: Go on, go on, go on, go on. Go on, go on, go on ; Go on, go on, go on, go on. Go on, go on, go on.

Such a duty should have been placed on some mightier wielder of the pen, whose intellect is non-comparable to the wisdom of your amanuensis. Coming to facts, this assembly of Au slians — thirteen numerically classified — was organized on Friday night, morning, or evening, at one o ' clock, September 13, A. D. 1914. We thirteen have as our salient characteristics Quiefncss ( P), Meditation (? ), Solitude (?). and an enormous capacity for Digesting Knowledge(?). Knowing that we possess these qualities, we applied ourselves diligently to the sneaking adversities of our abolishments. So we whisper to you an idea of these things (if you cross your heart and body to never breathe it to beloved faculty). Once upon a midnight dreary, as we pondered weak and weary over some new prank to do. a gentle voice whispered that the lady teachers, and our Dean too, were chasing possums in the dark and bleaky woods. Our humming, buzzing Mason quoted: " Strike with all your might, girls, while the iron is red. " So that our thirst for adventure might get a sip of satisfaction, the stairway was strewn with tanglefoot, and on the landing stood a fort of trunks fourfold, not neglecting to tie the elevator — then, as unexpected as Gabriel ' s trumpet shall sound, our dustpans, firecrackers, electric bulbs, whoops. and screams burst forth, greeting our returning victims. Evidences of hurry and clamor to catch us in this uproar were heard, but safe we thought we were, when alas! as the hoops of burning pitch entrapped the Roman foes, just in the same manner the flypaper checked our allies. But the sad day was yet to come, for once we had to realize. " Be sure your sins will find you out. " since each clad in a brazen look was asked to call at the Dean ' s office. So one by one was ushered in to be handed five demerits- But, as Socrates drank the dregs of death, we took our penalty with never a sigh. Our achievements we keep bound within the sacred volumes of our archives, to act as encouragement to our posterity. While greater responsibilities and probably harder duties await us in the future, with these we naturally expect to come increasing pleasures and perhaps honors. We have built up an enviable repu- tation, and now we are determined to preserve it. Since we see prospects of talent in our sweet little Mason, we are led to hope that she will have success in controlling her " Bee. " And innocent little Peg, like the ever-turning weathercock, we fancy some day with acquired stickability will find that she really loves. Our Doc. with ambitions now to supply the physical needs, in all probability will turn in some Spring to the treatment of trees, and cause the " Sapp " to rise. The aspiring genius of talented Bill Johnson we fear we shall have to sacrifice to the foreign field, to be boiled by cannibals, and it is rumored that as an experiment she will approach Bill as a test of her missionary ability. Since Jack Hayworth. all dressed up pink in everybody ' s clothes, walked across the campus, and actually smiled at a boy — she gives us hopes that in the future she will be an expert flirt-trainer. We are all proud to own that among us we have such a determined, skilled, ambitious, headstrong, happy-go-lucky, tom-boyish, deep-thinking, automatic talking machine (whose records we ' d like to change occasionally), and in whom we see the great leader of the American movement of woman ' s suffrage — namely, Skinnie Cole, And should we. the said Racket Raisers, rise to these celestial heights of fame, we ' ll lay our trophies at the feet of our kindly matron, whose presence is the balm of Sloan ' s Liniment on a gaping wound, and also of the Dean of Women, whose eyes, which outglow the radiance of the mighty firefly, haunt us like the shadowy remembrance of a lost " weeny-wurst " haunts the " broke " and hungry disciple of the crossties. And in our hearts we love ihem, that noble faculty crew; and whom we love we chasten, as the Holy Writ commands us to do. ■ — R. J., 16 One Hundred Twenty-Four RANDOLPH COUNTY CLUB J. C. AuMAN W. E.

Many have had the exalted privilege of drinking from the " Wells of Zion, " and thus adding to their limited stock of wisdom and spiritual power. At this time there were many advantages offered for minis- terial training, but at the same time there seemed to be a great need unsupplied, and a lack of real unity. In timely exhortation, a certain one of bygone days said: " Let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good work; not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another. " So the twenty minis- terial students of Elon College met in the Y. M. C. A. Hall, September 9, 1 908, and organized what is known as the Student Ministerial Association. Our organization was actuated by a threefold motive. ( I ) To promote a real feeling of brotherhood among those students who are looking to the ministry as a life work. (2) To actively present the claims of the Christian ministry to the more serious minded of our fellow-students. (3) To pledge each member of the Association to do some definite Christian work each week. With these noble purposes in view the Association has made rapid progress, and has been a great asset in the spiritual development of the student-body. It has also proven to be a strong exponent in preparing its members to solve many of the practical problems which inevitably present themselves. During the lapse of these few years, our numerical strength has been doubled; but while this is true we are still too few in number, " for the fields are white unto harvest, but the laborers are few. " May the happy day soon dawn when we shall see our present membership doubled. Then our steps shall become quicker, because " One can chase a thousand, and two can put ten thousand to flight. " In all our walk of life may we endeavor to make effective Christ ' s statement, " Ye are my witnesses. " And thus wit- nessing for him, and triumphantly marching under His banner, we are assured of a new- light to illumine our minds, and a new hope to fill our souls, and a new strength to inspire our hearts.

Truitt One Hundred Thirty-Three Z HE history of the Student Volunteer Band is short, and may be written in few jk words. Yet this does not mean that it is any the less important. ■ In a meeting held in the Elon College auditorium, by Pastor Rev. J. O. Atkinson and Rev. J. W. Harrell, February, 1914, student volunteers were called for. In answer to this call, one young lady and four young men went forward, namely: Miss Ruby Eaves, Messrs. S. S. Myrick, E. H. Rainey, R. P. Merritt, and Rev. John G. Truitt, thereby placing themselves before the Church and at the disposal of their several mission boards as candidates preparing for the foreign mission field. In the following March, the four young men organized themselves into what is now known as the " Elon College Volunteer Band, " with officers as follows: Rev. John G. Truitt, President; R. P. Merritt, Vice-President; S. S. Myrick, Secretary: and E. H. Rainey, Treasurer. This band held devotional meetings each week during the remamder of the college year. In the beginning of the Fall term, September, 1914, the Band elected three more students to active membership, and reorganized itself with the following officers: Miss Alma Bowden, President; Miss Grace Trollinger, Vice-President; Rev. H. S. Smith, Secretary; and J. D. Hardy, Treasurer. At this time, the band took on new life, and began an active work among its fellow-students, which campaign has created an active interest among the student-body. During the North Carolina Intercollegiate Y. M. C. A. Conference which was held at Elon, Dr. Hounshell, a secretary of the Student Volunteer Movement, delivered an address, entitled " The Voices We Hear, " which appeal, together with the sp lendid Christian spirit of the Conference, added seven new members to the original number. With a Band of fourteen systematic workers, it began systematic study in connec- tion with denominational meetings. That a more thorough work might be done, the Board elected Rev. J. V. Knight (a Sen:or member) as its leader. It is now studying " The Call, Qualifications, and Preparation of Missionary Candidates. " These meetings have been characterized by a deep spiritual influence, and a strong desire to carry out the Lord ' s command, " Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. " Among the interesting features of this year ' s program was a visit by a returned missionary from Japan, Miss Alice M. True, who gave much encouragement and inspira- tion along the line of missionary work m general. Also the President of the State Volun- teer Association, Mr. Frank M. Price, who helped to ally the Band with the State organization, paid a visit. In his address he stated that the percentage of increase in membership of the Elon Band was the largest in the Stale.

Our aim is to train young women in the service of God. No other religious organization has proven more beneficial in bringing young women to a realizat.on of their duty to God, or given them a greater inspiration for the work He is calling them to do, than the Y. W. C. A. Our Society was organized the second year of the College, in 1 890, with an enrollment of about fifteen girls. Having no better place to meet, the first meetings were held in a room of the young ladies ' dormitory. The first officers were Mrs. Ella Johnson Smith, Miss Irene Johnson, and Mrs. W. P. Lawrence. The society has grown continuously, until now we have seventy-five members. This year has been especially interesting, owing to the leadership of our resourceful and wide-awake president, and our loyal faculty-member. Miss Urquhart. Aside from our regular meetings on Sunday afternoon, we have six weekly Bible-study classes, taught by members of the society. These teachers meet weekly in a normal class taught by Dr. Atkinson. The little things the society does around the College, such as visiting the sick. and beautifying the chapel and dining-hall, are to be mentioned. At the beginning of each college year, we give a reception to all the girls, both new and old. During the year, other little entertainments are given for the members. This year we gave a mock marriage before Christmas, and a kid party after Christmas. Last year our Association sent two delegates to the Blue Ridge Conference. With the determination to do still greater things for the name we bear, and for the pur- pose to be represented at Blue Ridge in June, we set ourselves diligently to the great possibilities before us.

The Society has had a constant increase in its membership s:nce it was organized in 1 899, and there is no other organization in our College to which students respond with more service and loyalty. This Christian Endeavor Society has always been a source of religious informa- tion, inspiration, and help to both faculty and students, and for Elon to lose its influence would mean for her to lose one of her greatest powers for education and attractive college life. The Society has always played a large part in the work of the State Union; furnishing officers from time to time, and sending contributions and delegates to its meetings. The regular monthly business meetings are well attended, and no doubt the Society owes a great deal of its successful progress to the plans laid and the discussions carried on in these meetings. The prayer meetings are held each Sunday evening, at seven-thirty o ' clock, and it is hardly possible to attend these delightful meetmgs without receiving inspirat.on, new courage, and a greater faith to continue walking in the straight and narrow way. Under the present administrat on, decided steps forward have been made. The Junior Endeavor Society, which was organized early in the history of the Senior Society, has grown and developed until now the Sen:ors are proud to own both Junior and Inter- mediate Societies. We have recently organized a Chrstian Endeavor Expert class. This course of study is indeed instructive and interesting, and is being pursued by a large percentage of the membership of the Society. When the course is completed, an examination will be given, and as a reward for passing th ' s examination the student will receive the worthy and honorable title of C. E. E. (Christian Endeavor Expert). The one high aim of college students is to be educated. A great deal of edu- cation lies in the printed pages of text-books, but a far greater portion lies in the practical experiences of modern I ' fe. To live this life successfully, one must have, in addition to " book knowledge, " a high standard of rrorals, noble ideals and aspirations, and a true purpose in life, backed by a deep sp rit of religion. The Christian Endeavor Society furnishes all this, and gives those who attend its meetings a truly spiritual uplift. OFFICERS John G.

O. Atkinson, our pastor, who is an active Y. M. C. A. worker. The Student Conference of the North Carolina Y. M. C. A. ' s met with us October 7 to 11, 1914. Messrs. A. C. Bergeron and L. W. Vaughn were our repre- sentatives to the Interstate Y. M. C. A. Conference, held at Winston-Salem, in Jan- uary, 1915. From these Conferences we got new inspirations, and learned what other colleges were doing. This has been a prosperous year for our Association. We have increased our membership and attendance over all previous years. Our work has been of a high order in the student-body and the community around Elon. We have two Sunday Schools under our management, and other outside work of a religious nature. The officers of the coming year are well able to cope with the work that lies before them. To them we extend the hearty wish that they may enjoy the most pros- perous year m the history of the Association. — W. C. Purcell, General Secreiar]) Y. Bil. «. A GABIHET J. L. Farmer President W.

As is known by some, that night is set apart for the Junior-Senior reception. Strictly at eight-thirty, the honored guests, the Seniors, together with a few faculty members, began to arrive. We were met at the entrance by two Juniors, and ushered into the reception-hall to meet the receiving line, which consisted of all the officers of the Junior Class. This being gone through with, the next feature was to acquaint ourselves with the punch-bowl, and nothing more delicious did we ever taste. Everything being planned to the letter, there was no time allowed to drag by with " nothing to do. " After everyone was known to have been served to punch, we were then told to work out a Shakespeare contest. It was soon learned who was familiar with " Old Will. " The prize for the winner was a valuable book on Shakespeare. One of the lady teachers was the lucky one. It was then announced that the fellows should draw for partners, to go to the banquet hall. The girls ' names were attached to one end of little ribbons, while on the other were cards on which were painted characteristic sayings. It being near the date of our statesman, George Washington ' s, birthday, the dining-hall had been tastefully decorated in red, white, and blue. On the center of the long white table stood what seemed to be a real cherry tree hanging with ripe cherries, and standing under it with his little hatchet was a statue of George Washington. Nine courses were served, and in every one there was something to remind us of our first Presi- dent. Between the seventh and eighth courses, each guest was required to write a short verse, using the name of Washington, and then we were asked to read it aloud. A prize, " fifty views of Washington " (fifty two-cent stamps), was given to the one who com- posed the best poem. After the banquet was over, the company was ushered back to the reception- halls, there to engage in a Washington contest. When the eleven o ' clock hour arrived, it was hard for the happy bunch to part. They lingered awhile to listen to the splendid music which was filling the building. After saying the " good night " to all, and declaring the Class of ' 1 6 to be the best hostess yet, we went to our places of abode.

Just thrilling the air with melodies untold; When from the organ there arose such a sound. We knew Jennie Willis was there with wondrous renown. Down the aisle came the party at last. Mr. R.

We knew in a moment it must be Her soon, But more slowly she came to meet with her doom. And we listened and wailed the bride to appear. Now timid, now dainty, now trembling with fear. On the arm of Annie Laurie, her maid of honor true Came Beatrice wearing a robe of satin and tulle. And then in a minute we noticed on the scene, The groom, Oma Ulley, ready to be seen. Supported by A. Q. Gattling. a friend in time of need, ' Round to the altar the sacred vows to heed. Before the Bishop knelt the woman and the man As faithful Father Preston read the law of the land. His eyes, how they twinkled! His expression so grave While the sweet strams of Traumerei the organist gave. A wink of his eye and a twist of his head Soon gave them to know they had nothing to dread. He spoke just the words that went straight to their hearts, And feeling their doubts, made them happy as larks. And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But we heard them exclaim as they drove out of sight, " Good luck to all. and to all a good night. " One Hundred Fifty — Thi • HE officiating minister used the following ceremony — the Hmdoo Ring ' Ceremony (which we will quote for the benefit of all who desire to be united m matrimonial bonds) : Whereas it is not good that man should be alone, he should have him an help- meet. Hence we are assembled here, in this august presence, this evening, to join in the sacred unity of wedlock Samantha Who and Hezekiah Rhew. First, my friends, heed these injunctions, " Wives, submit yourself unto your husbands. " " Husbands, love your wives, even as your own self. " Now if you have cause to believe that you cannot fulfill these obligations, it were a thousand times better that ye should never have loved. I enjoin you to enter upon this state solemnly, soberly, discreetly, and lovingly. If anyone present has any just cause to manifest as to why these two should not become one, let him now speak, or else forever afterward be silent in seven tongues. Clasp right hands as a token of eternal devotion. Wilt thou, Hezekiah, take this beautiful, blushing blossom to be thy bride? Wilt thou cherish, protect, and defend her, and love her above all others? Hezekiah — " Well, since I come to think about the matter, parson, I guess I ' ll just have that thing to do. " Wilt thou, Samantha, take this semblance of a man to be thine overlord and thine domineering husband ; wilt thou believe him in his untruth, be faithful to him in his infidelity, love him even though his purse stay empty and his heart should become a vacuum of love. Samantha — " Um hume-m-me-yer-I reckon I ' d better do that. " Who has the nerve to donate this woman to this man? JosEPHUs Who — " Avec plaisir. " Bring hither the ring, little one. Now friends, Romans, countrymen, by way of parenthesis let me explain the situation. The bride being a devotee of the suffrage cause, gave her golden ring to the melting pot, and in return for it received an iron one. This ring which I hold before your oculistic organs is a symbol of nuptial love. It is durable, and will stand much strain. Its form is a circle, and is without end, and may you, my newly-wedded friends, so endeavor to make your love. And now, having covenanted in the presence of these witnesses, and in the Divine presence, I pronounce you husband and wife. " What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder.

My soul is loo burdened with anguish Not a ray of light do we spy My heart is sad and morose. Ah! Life seems so dark and dreary The sorrows and griefs and languish As shadows from a wintry sky — ■ Seem ready to lessen my course. Though the night is dark and above us. And the way seems stony and long. Though the heart is burdened with anguish And the castles seem lost with Time. We know just back of the clouds Afar — yet thou lingeresl near; We know the cares of today must vanish And tomorrow will not be so. Then why should we doubt and despair? Why should the shadows overcome? There is Hope, there is Truth, there is Love, God reigns and all is well. — C. B. M.

He made good in two posi- ' lions this year, as manager and as forward. He was on the " job " in arranging the schedule. He got a good northern trip, playing the best teams in Virginia and other States. He was always in the game for all he was worth. He has taken part in every game for the last three years, and has been the mainstay of the team. Morgan, captain, finished his second and last year as guard on the team. " Mollie " showed great improvement this year over last year, particularly in floor work. He possesses quite a deal of slick- ability, and never asks any quarter of his forward, nor gives any. He is in the game throughout. We can rely on him and " Mug " to guard their forwards to a standstill. McCauley, a sub-center of last year, found it easy to get the tip-off this year, and has played phenomenal ball. Bruce was in the game from the very beginning, and had plenty of pep. He passes the ball well, and is quite adept in shooting goals. He won fame for himself and team in shooting foul goals. He is noted for bemg all over the floor during a game. We can always rely on Bruce to do his work well. Moorefield. a star forward, was there with the goods. A characteristic of George is his fondness for shooting goals. He usually gets the first goal. He can hit the pocket as well when a guard is on him as when he is uncovered. He is very skillful in dodging. George worked hard the whole season, and the success of the team was in a large measure due to his untiring efforts. He is adept in shooting goals and dribbling through the lines. We can always rely on him to deliver the goods. Massey, a guard, played his first season of basket-ball this year. He went in with a determina- tion to fill the place on the regular quint left vacant by " Boomp " Morrelte, and by hard work he won out over his competitors. His skill in passing the ball won applause from all. He is in the game all the time. He uses his size to great advantage in dodging. He is noted for his close guarding, and his long, almost impossible freak shots from the middle of the floor. He and " Mollie " did good team work. " Mug " deservedly won his " E. " Hutchins, a sub-guard, proved himself to be a phenomenal player, lie is known by his close guarding. He made an able and reliable substitute. We can always depend on " Hutch " holding his man scoreless. He played his first game against A. and M., in which he won fame for himself and team. His man got only one through the basket. He works all the time, but never says a word, James Bradford was an aspirant for Varsity honors this year, and by hard work he won a place as sub-forward. James is a good level-headed player, and by next season he will prove as good a man as his brother. " Shine. " He is steady, and does his work well. He deserves applause for the services done in the games he played. " Ash " Holland played his first year as sub-forward. He is a hard worker, and is noted for his fast floor work. He is also good in shooting goals. " Ash " and " Jimmie " are two good forwards. All they need is a little more quinine. In the games Ayler played, he acquitted himself well. Tom Harwood played his first year as sub-center. " Tom " has the pep that It takes to win. He is famed for his hard work, and he always sees that his opponent doesn ' t score. Tom did as good work in refereeing as he did in playing. He is a reliable man. One Hundred Sixty B@§i;ol»B@iII Stat® CtenptonsUpg-ISfS Fifteen games in all were played with colleges, in which Elon scored 347 points, and her opponents 249. The tabulated results are as follows: January 11 — Carolina 15 Elon 9 1 5— Trinity I 6 Elon 1 8 26 — Carson and Newman 7 Elon 57 30— A. M. 22 ..Elon 29 February 3 — Guilford 25 Elon 21 6— A. M.

M. C. A. quints, winning from Dur- ham by 40 to II, and losmg to Greensboro by a score of 28 to 1 9 in the tryout game of the season, in which every member of the squad on November 28 was given a chance. Adding these scores to the college totals, we find Elon putting up 406 points to her opponents ' 288. An analysis of these facts reveals that, taking into account all college games played, the quint won ten out of fifteen. For the State colleges of North Carolina, Elon won seven of ten games, playing five of the leading colleges, as follows: Carolina, Wake Forest, Trinity, Guilford, and A. M. Games were scheduled with Davidson, but canceled by that quint. Elon is the only bunch that played all the major teams in the State, taking two each from Trinity and A. M., and breaking even with Carolina, Guilford, and Wake Forest. In view of these facts, it is hardly to be expected that any other quint will seriously mtention any question of her right to be recognized as Col- legiate State Champion.

In the Fall, this sport had much to strive against. Over two-thirds of the time the courts were too muddy to play on, and the practice was necessarily limited. The intercollegiate games were made slow or rained out on account of wet grounds. There were only two played — the tournament with Lenoir going to Elon ; the one with David- son being won by Davidson. Though tennis is not so strenuous an exercise, and though for the beginner it lacks excitement; yet by physical culture authorities it is said to be the most healthful and best exercise of all the college games, and to the player of skill it is most fascinating. Hence we think it should receive more recognition in all colleges, and we shall attempt to stimu- late its interest by building some new courts and arranging tournaments for the coming Spring. Our prospects for a winning team this Spring are excellent. McCauley, who has played class tennis for four years, and Varsity for two, will give the representative of any other college a hard tussle in singles, and with proper support will win in the doubles, unless the team against him be extra strong. Peel, as playing manager, is a very able co-player with McCauley. With the proper practice, they can do good team work. Also in singles he will make a good showing. Shirley Holland, as substitute, gave the others on the team a hard time to get their place. He played a steady, consistent game, and for his first year compares favor- ably with any other player Elon has had for some time. There is also much other good material for tennis players, and with a little prac- tice it may be brought out. Those who now hold their places on the team will most probably have to go some to keep them when the tournament is held again.

Professor Doak: I hope it didn ' t take long enough to make an impression on their mind, because I want them to forget it. Someone remarked that John Farmer said he wanted an economizing wife. Several days later the lights came on about three in the afternoon. Suddenly Helen Brinkley pulled down the shades, saying, I am economizing the daylight. One afternoon, as the three weird sisters of the Senior Class were out walking, they came in contact with an unruly mule. Then Beatrice Mason said: Look out girls, that animal is no respecter of persons. One Hundred Eighty-Eight IN THIS argument, student friends, we are trying to show to the world at large that there is no need for examinations, especially college examinations; that they have through the ages had a bad history, and that instead of being beneficial they are really against the majority of the laws of the Decalog, which if violated will bring destruction to any nation or people that disobeys them. The first examination of which we have any authentic record was the one made by Sister Eve in the garden of Eden. There she examined the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Life, being prompted, as we are in the present day, to make the examination for the purpose of obtaining knowledge. Every one of us knows this examnation was the begin- ning of human misery, and that we today, seven thousand centuries after the examination, are still suffering because of her iniquity, which was the direct result of an exammation. Thus we can readily see that the inst tution of examinat.ons was one of the greatest blunders ever committed by mankind. Now to another instance: When Noah, the patriarch, was on his cruise in the Ark, one of the whales (whales lived on land before the Flood) wanted to make an examination, for the purpose of obtainmg a knowledge of the content of the water, and also to find out what effect it would have on his sk n. Finally, summoning all the courage he could muster, he leaped out of the top window of the Ark into the surging billows of the mighty deep. Ever since that tim.e he and his kind have had to live in the sea, and have been bereft of the beauties of God ' s country. Here we see two representative cases: the first caused untold suffering, and banished Paradise forever from the face of the earth, to the great and eternal loss of the descendants of Adam and Eve; the second brought great sorrow upon the posterity of the whale, in that he once had legs, which he has now lost from disuse, and once he could live off the luscious fruits of the gardens and the savory meats of the animals of the earth, but now he has to live off the smallest creatures in the sea, and consumes all his time in obtaining them. Heren we see that examinations are fatal both to the world of men and to the kingdom of animals. Now we shall show to our satisfaction that examinations are m direct opposition to the laws of Moses, and are therefore of great danger to nations which have them in their boundaries. One Hundred Eighty-Nine -O " Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy, " saith the Holy Book. Though we do not all violate this commandment " prima face " because of examinations, yet we are all thinking of them on the Seventh day, and thus it is robbed of its spirituality and is desecrated. " Thou shaft not kill. " But we all murder pencils, assassinate the questions, and try w.th our most mighty efforts to " kill " the professor. " Thou shalt not covet. " Nevertheless we go to the professor and try to manifest to him our alleged knowledge, and try to " pump " as much out of him as we can, because of our covetousness of a good grade and of what he knows. " Honor thy father and thy mother. " When examinations come on, we fail to write to our parents (except on a cash basis), and even forget them, and therefore " our days will not be long in the land which the Lord our God giveth us. " " Thou shalt not steal. " But we all have to steal pencils, ink, knowledge, and all other examination necessities if we would make the coveted seventy, and that without complementary conditions. We have shown how these hated examinations violate five of the Old Testa- ment rules, and we can certainly with utmost truth say that they violate the other five in just as great a degree. Now that these examinations are so undesirable, so fatigu ng to the flesh, such a worry to the mind, and so detrimental to the interests of mankind; let patrons, professors, students — the whole world arise, and with the slogan, " Away with Examinations, " free college life from one of the greatest curses it has ever had, the only thing that prevents it from being one grand sweet song. t (S " Ti® Last W®rt KIND READER, having examined this issue of The Phipsicli, please reserve your criticism until you under- stand the circumstances under which we labored m its preparation. We have worked hard, trying to get good cuts, and to make the reading matter as good as we could. We have withheld no effort; all have worked, and worked together. Many hours have been spent on this volume of The Phipsicli when they were sorely needed on our text-books. We have done our best : we have no apologies to offer. If, after due consideration, you are not satisfied with this, the third issue of The Phipsicli, we are filled with regret. But, on the other hand, if you are pleased with it, we are also pleased. We feel proud and relieved that it is finished and ready for the press. We owe much to each one, individually and collectively, for assistance in the preparation of the book. The staff wishes to thank each member thereof for their assistance. Much we owe to the Editor-in- Chief and Business Manager with their assistants and associates for unstinted material and moral support. We want to thank the Senior Class for their help; we thank the Faculty for the generous aid they have given us ; we thank the Committee on Publication for their hearty co- operation ; we wish to thank the Art Teacher for her valuable assistance rendered in making the drawings. Also we feel under many obliga- tions to the Electric City Engraving Company and the Observer Printing House for their prompt and pleasant service. We thank all, for it was through their efforts and assistance that this issue of The Phipsicli was made possible. We trust that you may enjoy it, while turning its pages, viewing the pictures, and perusing its contents.
