In reality its beginning should be dated back to the year 1826 rather than 1889, as it now appears on the records of the State Department. The pioneer in the field of religious education among the people of the Christian Church, who later founded Elon, was Elder Daniel Wilson Kerr. In 1826 the Wake Forest Pleasant Grove Academy was incorporated with Elder Kerr as principal, and from that time until his death in 1850, he incorporated two similar institutions of learnmg, of which he was also principal. It is true that the schools he headed up were begun on his own initiative, but they were endorsed by the conferences of the Christian Church and were regarded by him as denominat:onal schools. . ... ,,., Two years after his death the seed of h:s sowing bore a finer fruit in the estabhshment of Graham Institute m Graham, Alamance County, with Rev. John R. Holt as principal In 1857 it was chartered as Graham College, with Prof. W. H. Doherty as president, under whose administration it flourished until the Civil War, during which it suffered such depletion that its doors were closed. A few years later Rev. W. S. Long came into possession of the Graham College property and operated the school as Graham Normal College. It was endorsed by the conferences of the Church and ceased to exist upon the opening of Elon College. In 1887 the Southern Christian Convention decided to take over this school and operate it as its own church college, but finding the equipment inade- quate for the needs, they chose as the site of their college Mill Point, the present location of Elon College, and immediately set about to build and equip the school. A charter was granted the institution March 1 1, 1889, with Dr. W. S. Long as president, and on May 20th of that year the corner stone of the first building was laid. Elon College opened its doors for the reception of students September 2, 1890, enrolling seventy-six students during the fall term of the first year. The original plant consisted of the Administration Building and the East Dormitory, though neither of these buildings was completed at the opening. Scaffolding was still up on the Administration Building, and the East Dormitory was not covered. During the first year these buildings were made available for service, though they were not completed until Dr. Staley ' s administration. In the early history of the college young men lived in the third floor of the Administration Building, while the young ladies were domiciled in the East Dormitory. Later the young men received the right to live in the East Dor- mitory, and the young ladies boarded in the village. In the fall of 1897 the young ladies again became invested with dormitory rights and held the East Dormitory until the West Dormitory was opened. In its history Elon has not been different from other denominational colleges, its strug- gle for existence being pronounced. During Dr. Long ' s administration the financial prob- lem was in a measure solved by a financial agent. Dr. W. T. Herndon, the first financial agent, instituted a drive for funds in the early ' 90 ' s. This undertaking was to raise $10,000.00 from ten men of the Church. Such a proposition at that time was a gigantic undertaking, especially since the Church in this section was relatively weak. Success crowned his efforts and the goal was reached. Rev. W. W. Staley, D.D., succeeded Dr. Long as president of the institution in 1895, and served as non-residen t president for eleven years, with Dr. J. U. Newman as his dean for nine years and Dr. J. O Atkinson for the other two. During his adminis- Pafe eleven Njneteen Ttvent tration a challenge was received from the Hon. Francis Asbury Palmer of New York City to donate $30,000.00 to the college provided $12,000.00 could be raised from the Church. This challenge was accepted and with great difficulty the amount was raised, which was known as the Twentieth Century Fund. This circumstance placed the college out of debt in 1902 and gave it a plant complete so far as it went, and an endowment of $30,000.00. The attendance began to mcrease under these signs of progress and sta- bility, and the need for an enlarged plant began to gain ground. Upon Dr. Staleys resignation from the chair of the presidency in 1906, Dr. E. L. Moffitl was chosen his successor. Then followed a period of expansion in the college plant. The West Dormitory was erected, electric lights, steam heat and running watei were installed thoughout the buildings, bemg furnished by a central power plant. These improvements necessitated the raising of $50,000.00 to take care of the indebtedness incurred. Dr. Moffitt immediately set to work to raise the Special Fund of Fifty Thousand Dollars, but before the campaign was completed illness so seriously depleted his health that he retired from the presidency in June, 1911. At this point Dr. W. A. Harper, our present president, who was elected at the age of twenty-eight, then the youngest college president of the South, took up the work where Dr. Moffitt had left off and completed the raising of the Special Fund. During the early years of his administration the plant enjoyed further expaniion, the Alumni Building being constructed in 1914 and paid for by the raising of the Alumni Fund. Following in the wake of this addition the oung Ladies ' Hall and the Young Men ' s Club House were erected, with the further additions later of the Laboratory Building, the College Farm, and the West End Hall property. In 1915, after an investigation conducted by the United States Bureau of Education and the North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction, Elon was rated as a standard college. The high water mark of the present administration, however, was reached when the $125,000.00 Standardization Fund as permanent endowment for the college was under- taken in 1919. The president took the field in the spring of this year, and instead of $125,000.00 being raised, more than $380,000.00 was subscribed. It is also expected that the recent Men and Millions Forward Movement of the Church in 1920 will net the college $250,000.00. The Southern Christian Convention, which fosters Elon, has in mind an ideal small college as evidenced in their determination set forth in the 1920 convention at Raleigh to add to the plant the following buildings: a Science Hall, a Fine Arts Building, a Library and College Activities Building. It was also suggested that a Law Department might profitably be added. Already plans are being laid for the erection of the Science Hall in the near future.

Page iixfy -lhree Phi sicli, Nineteen Twenty-Oi Ckronicles of tke Class of ' 21 ' N the year 1917, the month of September, a wonderful thing happened to old Elon. She was discovered by the Class of ' 21. We were put off the train, a hundred strong, and handed over to Coach Johnson, Uncle Pink, the lordly seniors and a few other notables who, after showing us the " hunchback oak, " the water tank, and Uncle Mike ' s, saw we could easily handle the ropes and turned us aloose. These same guides were needed to help higher classmen with their baggage. We had been on the Hill some time before we had time to discover ourselves as indi- viduals, so headed by a Cannon we organized the Class of ' 21. We set out to win renown. For our motto we chose, " Not finished, but begun, " which we have striven faithfully in every way to live up to. For our colors we took purple and gray. As Freshmen the Class of ' 2 1 does not claim to be of higher merit than our prede- cessors, our ups and downs, our joys and sorrows we bravely stood. The Sophs, took our first debate; in athletics we fell short, but consoled ourselves thinking of next year. As we looked back over the year ' s march we realized we did as well as we could, so dismissed our cares and went home, to war, to the farm, or to the munition shop to wait for our return to school. Sophomores We are back. We are happy to see each other and sad not to see all. Under the heavy shadow of war, the great " flu " epidemic, with our men in khaki we discover our- selves in that strange state of consciousness known as Sophomorehood. But we descend gradually and soon are down to a level where we can recognize our upper classmates, feel on equal footing with the faculty and make it hot for the Freshies. Not until after the armistice and the disbanding of the S. A. T. C. were we able to take up where we left off. Soon we got together under the leadership of Lucy Eldredge. We renew our deter- mination to put ' 2 1 on the map of Elon activities. This year we easily won the debate from the Freshmen. In athletics we won every championship the college offered. The year was so full for us that it was with regret that we left for our summer holidays, but we could rejoice that our holidays were to be in peace and not in war. Page s ' lxl -four Phi s7ch, Nineteen Tiuenty-One Juniors We can not wait for school to open. For a week we have been coming. We miss a few who have dropped by the way. Our great pleasure is to welcome back to the fold several classmates who stayed till all w-as over " Over There. " With Jerry McCauley to lead us, we set out with determination, a higher and stronger faith to make for ourselves a name. Agam we win our debate, this time over the lordly seniors, while m athletics we let the Freshmen have the basketball championship by one point ; and the Sophomores by one- hslf po:nt walk off with the track meet; and to the seniors went the baseball game. All these accidents, taken hard, only renewed our determ:natian to win ' em all next year. We were proud to have as our guests the seniors on St. Patrick ' s Day, 1920. After staying over a few days, or weeks, after Commencement, we set out for our holidays, which were saddened by the death of a beloved classmate, Mary O. Elder. Seniors Recalling the kindly services rendered us by Coach Johnson and Uncle Pink, we arrived early in order to meet the newcomers to show them the " hunchback oak, " the water tank and Uncle Mike ' s. Thus does history repeat itself. We start out to begin, not to finish under the leadership of C. M. Miller. Soon it is evident that the purple and gr y will wave nobly over all college activities during the year. First we lost the debate to the juniors, but triumphed over the faculty in basketball twice. Then won from the Juniors, but lost the basketball championship to the Sophomores Under the strong influence of a new coach some of us were able to make all the varsity teams. On January 1 3th our hearts were saddened and our heads bowed in grief by the tragic death of our beloved member. Lacy Invin Ingle. He was buried on the 15th and the class as a whole attended his funeral. He was a consistent worker and one of our most prominent members, and sorely is he missed from our ranks. Best of all, we are able to give and to enjoy ourselves our gift of an electric bell system to Alma Mater, not merely to talk of giving it. So thirty-three strong we go out. We will wonder throughout life how we could have succeeded without the four wonderful years with our Alma Mater. Her deep devotion, her clear instructions and abiding confidence in us, have grown so strong that we have a love for her that is lasting. Her influence we will feel, it will grow stronger with the passing of time. So, classmates, this is not farewell. We will meet often at Elon and great will be our reunions. We will never let warm memories of the year ' 21 grow cold. Historian. Page sixl )-f.ve Phj sjch, J ineteen Ttuenty-One Senior Statistics Name L. Alcorn .... Rosa Brannock. M. Burgess . . . C. M.

We came to Alma Mater when the world was in the throes of the most terrific carnage in the memory of history; we came during the World War, that epic struggle designed to render the nations of the earth safe for a government of, by, and for the people. Our own college heard the clarion call to arms, and in re- sponding, organized the Student Army Training Corps. And the terrors of pestilence were added to those of war. The epidemic of Spanish influ- enza was upon us, and the grim reaper stalked abroad. We were resolved, despite theie discouraging circumstances, to be satisfied with nothing less than our best, resolved to do our utmost toward preparing ourselves for the next year. Our class was organized in November, with Dr. W. C. Wicker presiding. We adopted him as our sponsor, and elected our regular class officers. With the beginning of the year we were happy to return to Elon; and we were still more determined to press on toward worthy achievements. Our president having failed to return, we elected Mr. Casstevens in his place. Although we were defeated in the Freshman-Sophomore debate, we were by no means disheartened. Time passed rapidly. We soon awoke to the realization that we were Sophomores. The fall of 1919 found our ranks sorely depleted. Although we were saddened by the absence of former members, we persevered in the effort to make a name for our class individually and collectively. We won the championship in track, and to our great delight also the decision in the inter-class debate. What member cannot recall the thrills which he experienced on the occasion of the Freshman-Sophomore debate? And who will ever forget the grand old ' 22 on the tank, a result of this victory? It has seemed ever to beckon to us, to inspire us with confidence, to remind us that others were looking to our achievements. We were represented on the varsity teams by " Johnnie, " Clem, Newman, Thomas, and White. And we were equally well represented in the Philologian entertainment by Thomas, Johnson, and Self; in the Clio entertainment by Newman, Clem, Alexander, Moon and Simiele. Three of our members, Garvey, White, and Simiele, were represented in the Glee Club. We have a Sophomore orchestra composed of Garvey, Simiele, MacCal- man, and Moon. And last but by no means least, three of our athletic cheer leaders were chosen from the Class of ' 22. Time passed. Back again in the fall of ' 20, we were thirty-six strong, sober, level- headed Juniors. We had the satisfaction of winning the Junior-Senior debate. But our Junior year is hardly half past, and other laurels we are sure of winning. Soon we shall begin planning for the Junior-Senior reception, one of the most delightful events of the year. Just as sincerely as we are striving day by day to live up to our motto, " Be Prepared, " we, the Class of ' 22, bid you a fond farewell. Historian.

Page nmclji-ltt ' o Pht sich, Nineteen Twenty-One Sopkomore Class History HE members of the Class of ' 23 began to arrive on the beautiful hill of Elon September 9, 1919. For three days they poured in on every train. Everybody and everything was new to us. For many days every ' 23 was dejected. We ventured to chapel on the morning of September 1 0th, at which time we were niformed as to some customs of the college. After chapel we were called to the president ' s office to register. Nat- urally we did not know what courses to select. In our excitement we said " Yes, Dr. Harper, I ' ll take that, " whether we understood what he was talking about or not. As a result, our schedules were changed often before October 1st, Not many weeks passed, however, before we were really and truly ready for work. For two months we lingered along in the same routine, attendmg classes every day and not knowing exactly where we stood. On the first of November we heard an an- nouncement in the dming hall which interested us very much: " The Freshmen will meet in Room No. 1 3 this afternoon at five o ' clock for the purpose of organizing. " At this meeting we found that our class was one hundred thirty-two strong, and that North Caro- lina, Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, New York and Porto Rico were represented. Class officers were elected and matters pertaining to the future of the class were discussed. It was then that the ' 23 Class history really began. During the remainder of the year wc made a record not to be forgotten. We won the inter-class championship in basketball and baseball. With the aid of two preparatory students as substitutes for two of ' 23 players who were away, we won the football game over the three upper classes combined. Then, when we painted the town red, the upperclassmen said, " The Freshies seem to have brought along plenty of paint. " Tis true, we did have paint a-plenty and " pep " a-plenty, too. All, however, was not victory for us. The Sophomores were awarded the banner in track. In March, 1920, we fought a hard fight with the Sophomores in the annual inter- class debate, but were compelled to give the victory to our opponents. We welcomed commencement with joy, at the close of which we scattered to the various parts of the United States to spend our vacation. Too soon, it seemed, the three months ' vacation had passed and we were assembled in the chapel on September I, 1920, for another year at Elon. We were saddened to learn that only forty-six of the one hundred and thirty-two had returned. Six new members were added, however, to our fold, making our number fifty-two. Our prospects for this year are good, for we won the inter-class basketball champion- ship. No other games have been played and, therefore, no other victories won. We have heard the Juniors, Seniors and faculty say: " They are wise Sophs! " until we have almost begun to believe it. Historian.

Fresninan Class History • N August 3 1 , Elon College was bustling with the usual activities prevalent at the annua! opening of the school term. In addition to the former stu- dents there were many new students, the majority of whom would enter the Freshman Class. These new students came from various sections of the United States, from Connecticut, New York, and from many parts of Virginia and North Carolina. As the days went by, others came in from Scotland, Cuba, Japan and Syria, making the Freshman Class the most cosmopolitan in the history of the college, October 20th the first class meeting was held. At this time the presi- dent and other class officers were elected, also the Freshman debaters for the Freshman- Sophomore debate. " To Gleam is Better Than to Blaze, " was selected for the motto. Thus far there have been no inter-class athletic contests with the exception of basketball, which was lost to the Sophomores in a hard-fought game, but when they are held the Class of ' 24 will be ably represented in them. The class has an excellent team of debaters and is looking forward confidently to the inter-class debate. So ' 24 goes on, striving to make its gleam a glow that will accomplish something worth while in the years to come. Historian.

He has won the admira- tion of all the students both as a man and as a coach, but especially has he won the admiration of the men partic ipating in the athletic sports. Taking over a bunch of raw mater al at the beginning of school, he whipped them into a gridiron team in an amazingly short time, and a new spirit in all branches of athletics has been noticed since he became coach here. It is confidently expected that he will place all depart- ments of athletics at Elon on a higher order than ever known here before. ' errv Under the leadership of Captain Perry our team made a creditable showing this year in spite of the fact that the football sport at Elon is yet in its infancy. He proved himself a capable player and a tireless worker. His excellent line plunging and accurate passing of the pigskin ranks along with the best of players, and stimu- lated his team-mates to give him the best support that was in them. Capt. E. S. Johnson (elect) of the 1921 team is also one of the stand-bys of the team, and can be counted on to lead his team to victory for the coming season. Captain Perry Page one hundred six Phi sicVi, Nineteen Twenty-One Q fs ■Johnnie " " B. B.

While the past season was not all it might have been, or all that we had hoped for it, it was by no means a failure. The games with Lexington. Chapel Hill, and A. C. C. were easy victories. While losing the games with Furman, Wake Forest, Trinity, and Guilford, Elon clearly out- played her opponents m two of these games. With the valuable experience gained this year against strong teams. Elon will be better prepared to enter upon the heavy schedule for the next season. Football has now been placed firmly upon the hearts of the student body. Too much credit cannot be given the men who gave their time and energy toward the building of the team, and it was only through the efforts of all the men that the team made the showing it did. I o those men who did not receive the much coveted " E " goes the satisfaction of knowing they did their best. " More power to the scrubs.

" " Smith " " Joe- " L. m; When we speak of individuals we might, and should, mention every man who won his letter, for it was the team as a whole rather than the individual work of any man that brought us the success we had. Captain Perry proved a capable player, and an unusually good general. Captain-Elect E. S. Johnson ran the team well and will prove a good leader for the next year. Brown and Smith proved to be a pair of tackles hard for any team to stop, and cleverly outplayed their opponents in every game. Their work was especially evident in the Wake Forest contest. Marlette and B. B. Johnson developed into a reliable pair of ends, showing their best in the Guilford game. Odom, White, and Garvey formed a center trio of merit, being quite noticeably good on defense. Newman played a remarkable game in the backfield, Cannon ' s end runs were flashy, and Underwood and Stoner were good in broken field work. Fix was a valuable man wherever placed, and Clark played a dependable end, especially on defense. Evans, Harper, Clem, Garrison, Rudd, Fessmire, Albriton, Gannon, Walker, and Wright all made a creditable showing and will prove hard men to keep from landing a regular position next year. In fact, the entire team played exceptionally good football considering its experience.

I.g.; B. B. Johnson, c; Fix. r.f.; Perry, l.g.; McAdams. l.g.. comprising the varfily. and N. G. Newman. Andrews, and Walker being used as substitutes. The selection of Joe Newman as captain proved to be a good one and he guided his team well. This is Newman ' s fourth year in Elon athletics, and his graduation this year will mean a loss to the teams. The season began with a toss-up with the Raleigh " Y on their floor and re- sulted in a decisive victor;y for Elon. On this trip east the Wilson " Y " also went down to defeat before our boys. The home team experienced their defeat on the U. N. C. court, where the strong university team ran up a score of 37 to our 12. Wake Forest then nosed out a one-point victory on their home floor, the team invaded Virginia for four games, winning from Hampden-Sidney. but dropping the games with the University of Richmond, University of Virginia, and the Lynchburg Elks. Fix, playing right foiward on the varsity, and who was injured early in the season, did not accompany the team lo Vir- ginia, but was able to get back into the games soon after their return. One of the most satisfactory features of the season was the winning of all the games played on the home floor. Wake Forest. Davidson. State College, Guilford. Lenoir and Woflord all suffered defeat at Elon. Half of the students then accompanied the team to Guilford to see our bpys beat them on their home court, which they did to the tune of 29 to 14. The success of the team this year was due (o the team work and system introduced by Coach Corboy; the exceptionally good guarding of McAdams, Perry and B. B. Johnson; and the accurate shooting of field goals of E. S, Johnson, Fix. and Captain Newman. Captmn Newman Th. " Ghee " " Slats " ' Johnnie ' Page hundred tivehe Phi sich, Nyneteen Twenty-One .

Of last year ' s players there remain Cap- tain Marlette, Stoner, E. Johnson, and Cheek, infielders; Brown and Clark, outfielders ; Perry, pitcher, who are all letter men. Also Barker, Andrews, E. C. White, and Reed, pitchers; Joe Newman and Self, infielders, are good material carried over from last season ' s squad. Underwood and Harward are back on the Hill after a year ' s absence from school, and will give someone a battle for a place on the team. Of the new material, Braxton, Fogleman, Thomas, Evans, Smith, Albritton, Purcell, Bateman, and Penny are working out with a view of having a start on the veterans. Coach Corboy is rather optimistic as to the team for this spring, and says that if hard work will make a team, then Elon will be proud of her nine. The graduate manager has arranged games with the following college teams, both on the home field and at the respective colleges: Trinity, North Carolina State, Wake Forest, Guilford, Davidson, Lenoir, Belmonl. Hampden-Sidney, University of Richmond, Lynchburg, Furman, and Randolph-Macon. While, at this writing, it is too early to forecast the outcome of the above games, it is confidently expected when the final statistics are taken in May they will produce a record that will show Elon well over the 50 per cent mark in the " won " column — a record that will be highly satisfactory to every local supporter of Elon athletics.

Six letter men with an additional number of old men who made good records last season, supplemented by a number of promising Freshmen, assure Elon of the best Track Team in recent years. The sprinters are working hard and we anticipate a good line-up when the team is finally picked. We feel that a well-balanced learn will show themselves light-footed when the referee fires the pistol.

Two games were played in the fall, Elon winning from Oak Ridge 2-0, and losing to Davidson 2-1, Newman and Surratt playing in the doubles, and Atkinson and Newman playing the singles.

( Rf " ' W! Forex ord To Whom It May Concern: EFORE going furt|ier, let ' s have an understanding. No lover of truth could possibly appreciate the pack of com- plimentary lies in the preceding pages. Henceforth, the lurid light of reality shall disclose the true species of the insects which mar the natural beauty of the tree of life, and if we spare but one, may direst torture seize us for doing them injustice. If you are not hurt we will be sorely disappomted. If you consider yourself slighted when you fail to find herein flalterful mention of your frontal topography or your police-court record, don ' t blame us if we don ' t know you. You must be a mediocre, dangling mem- ber of the kind that don ' t fit in. We put in everybody we dislike and wp are soured on everybody we know. And we know everybody in disrepu- table society. If you wanted publicity you should have made our acquaint- ance earlier. If, on the other hand, you want to thank us for putting you in, slay away. The only thing that keeps us from becoming murderers is the distance between us and you. We have mangy spots and your presence is no soothing ointment. Thinking about you has ruined our disposition. We lunch on hammers and sleep by preference in a hardware store. Knocking comes natural. You may think you ' re good and think others think you ' re good. Don ' t kid yourself. Here are the things thai the editor cut out of the regular writeups. He has a sense of decency ; we have a sense of humor. We love facts, so we put them in. If you don ' t like our wisdom, you have no sense of humor. Everything in this annual is a joke except what follows. So read aloud and listen attentively. im- Page hunilrcJ nincl )-lhree M ' ' Phi sicJi, Nineteen Twenty-One Sl[eci ivj Workers Page one humlrcd nincl -fn Phi sjch, Nineteen Txventy-One Jokes — Or Worse From a biological viewpoint Rainey is said to be cute because he so much re- sembles his ancestors (monkeys). An Incident A preacher went out hunting, Twas a Sunday snowy day. He carried a short little rifle To scare the squirrels away. The grays were on our campus, And they were very shy. But when the boys cried, please do Murray ddn ' l heed their cry. ' t shoot He aimed at one with the only ball And cracked away a limb. But when he watched for the wanted prey. No squirrel fell down to him. The Buck Three met in special session. They called him to the spot; They charged him a dozen things. And put the Bucks on hot. Murray says now he ' s all out of wits. And 15 going to leave the college; Until the Juniors learn more sense. And the Buck Three get more knowledge. Lucy Adams: " Oh, I ' m all danced out. " Gallant Student: " Naw, you ain ' t darned stout: you ' re just nice and plump. " .y. Carolina Editor (to Ezell at Student Editors ' meeting) : " What kind of a paper do you have at Elon?

When he sit he almost lie, When he jump he almost fly. He has no sense at all hardly. How extremely interesting an amphibia is the animural He habitates almost universally on aqua pura. His toes are webbed on his hind feet. His legs are also good to eat. What a wonderful creature is the frog! When he stand he almost sit. And when he sit he lie almost.

Some serious thought and much real fun have gone into the work of preparing this volume, but we realize it has yet to go through the perils of censorship. You friends who criticize, as we know you will, remember that you gave us the pen with which to write, and the ink was not of our own choos- ing.
