In happy homes he saw the light Of household fires gleam warm and bright; Above, the spectral glaciers shone And from his lips escaped a groan— Excelsior! " Try not the pass, " the old man said; " Dark lowers the tempest overhead. The roaring torrent is deep and wide. " And loud that clarion voice replied, Excelsior! " O stay, " the maiden said, " and rest Thy weary head upon this breast. " . tear stood in his dark blue e e. Hut still he answered, with a sigh — Excelsior ! " Beware the pine-tree ' s w ithercd branch ! Beware the awful avalanche! " This was the peasant ' s last goodnight; A voice replied, far up the height — Excelsior! At break of day, as heavenward The pious monks of Saint Bernard Uttered the oft-repeated prayer, A ' oice cried through the startle l air — Excelsior! A traveler, by the faithful hound, Half-buried In the snow is found, Still grasping in his hand of ice That baruier vith the strange tievice — Excelsior! There in the twilight, cold and gray.

Hook E. W. Auman Sn t wmnrr Junior J. A. Walker Senior History of Class of 1927 Elon On September 5, 1923, there arrived on EInn campus one hundred and six distinguished high school graduates, hut after going through the bewildering experience of matriculating and arrang- ing classes we were transformed into humble, green Freshmen. How exciting were the first events of college life! First, on September 8, came the Faculty Reception, at which time we were formally presented to the faculty and upper classmen. After this came many more almost as important. On November i we organized our class with H. Richardson as president and Mr. L., M. Cannon as our sponsor. With the frequent calls of tht» Sophomores and the regular routine tif classes, exaininations were here almost before we knew it. December 23, 1923. Our examinations were finished, and we were all on our Avav home for the Christmas holidays. January, 1924. We have begun to regain some of that feeling we lost so suddenly the first day we were on the " hill " for our class has begun to be noticed by others than the " Sophs. " We had won the basketball championship and our class was well represented on the varsity basketball squad by " Monk " Hill and Fred Voliva. We also won the Freshman-Sophomore debate, and Henry Peel representect our class as an intercollegiate debater. On September 3, 1924, we returned to find a; huge wall around the campus, but surely that was not built for us, for we are now Sophomores. Pa e thirty V A vSi ouPA Vwe ThU year Robert Hook was our president. Thanksgiving morning there was much excitement on the campus. It was rumored that there was to be a wedding and that right on the campus. And sure enough, Hotsu O ' Hara, who had joined our class in the fall, was married in Dr. Harper ' s office. We have gained more prominence in debating. Again we won the Freshman-Sophomore debate. Too bad the Junior-Senior debate has been discontinued. Of the eight intercollegiate debaters, four cf them were Sophomores. April I was Senior-Sophomore day. Clirls, have you reported to Miss Savage all the rules you broke that day. ' September 2, 1925. We were just Juniors then. A rather insignificant class after haviiig been Sophomores. But with E. W. Auman as leader we were ready for another year. Darden Jones and H. Richardson were prominent men on the football squad that vear. Richardson was editor of " Maroon and (.iold. " An office never he ' d before bv a Junior. On March 17 we entertained the Seniors. Bruce C ' ates and Fred I ' rescott gave diploma recitals in piano that spring. September i, 1926. We are now Seniors, fifty-seven in Jiumber, the largest senior class in the history of the college. Allen Walker is our president. Mr. Cannon left us last spring, so Mr. C. J. Velie, head of the Music Department, was chosen for our sponsor. On the fifth day of January, 1927, we paid the business manager our last matriculation fee. The Junior-Senior banquet was on March 2. How good it seemed to be entertained instead of entertaining! April I, Senior-Sophomore day! Then we got revenge on the Freshmen who insulted our senior dignity last fall. May 20. Senior picnic. All our exams were over and our college work completed. This was our day. And now, having the distinction of being the first class to enter the " New Elon " and the first class to graduate after Elon was admitted to the Southern Association of Colleges; on this the twenty-fourth day of May, 1927, we receive our diplomas and bid farewell to all our college Paye thirly-one V iA-v i ci[irm ' Tw®w Senior Class Poem The New Road We have reached a goal today, and yet, our life work ' s just begun; There are tasks that are awaiting and are eager to be done. Four years we climbed the old road with our classmates, teachers, friends- And now we try a new way which is just around the bend. We are loyal to our college, and her stamp we proudly bear; We are grateful for our parents, their unselfish love and care. Nor will we forget " Excelsior " , our motto high and true ; But the Great Beyond is calling — it ' s the road that ' s strange and new. Strange and new this road before us — yet we enter hopefully — Alma Mater ' s trainings armed us for the life that is to be; So now, comrades, as we ' re leaving, " forward " is our command — And remember we are guided to nobler issues than we planned.

We «ere nnt Inng in finding that Allen is a man in every respect. He is always willing to do that which he can for you. As a student senator, he has served the students justly. As an athlete he has played his part well, lie is popular as a student, displaying much cheer and happiness. His words are few, but always full of meaning. k Wn.E ' i ' Doris Stolt B.A. SANFORD, K.

An ancient foreign proverb, translated, says: " Help thy Irrother ' s boat across, and lo! thine own hath reached the shore. " This is particularly true of Wiley. We can ' t imagine any class social function on the hall " going off big " without her help. Loyal? Yes, she ' s that. If she ' s ever missed a class meeting, we don ' t remember it. t ' naflfectcdly charming and attractive, gracious in manner, she has attracted many friends who know that she is necessary to their happiness.

Can we not hear him on all occasions lending that charming tenor voice to the songs that we love so dearly to sing? Not only does he sing, but Stanley is a good all-round man. He is a good librarian, a good actor, a loyal worker, our Senior on the Athletic Council and — well, why try to name them all? This we do know — we can always bet on Stanley, for we know that he ' ll always prove true. Spencer D.ale Woodie B. A. FURCIIES, N. C.

He has a will to do and to vein, at work or at pl.iy. He is not known on the campus because of his social life so much, but he is known because of the keen mind that he possesses.

Here is a young lady e tip our hats to, and iti doing that pay the homage that is due to anv person that finished college in three years. She is one of the few members of our class who was here before the fire of 1923. She started in here when Elon was the old Elon made famous in story and legend. She finishes with the first class that entered after the new Elon was started. Proud are we to have her as a classmate and as a friend. She has succeeded here as a student, and ill life we expect her cup of good cheer and happiness to be filled to overflowing. Uvi- Frank James Allston B. A. PHTSBURC, PA.

He has the belief that " common sense " is superior to book learning, and he is talented with the former. He has been a valuable man on the gridiron for Elon. We expect him to coach a winning team in the near future. Dwight has been popular in college activities and a bright future awaits him. -!; - Judith Sinclair Black B.A. HAMPTON, VA.

After our college days are over we truly wonder where we shall turn for the comradeship and friendliness that Madge has brought to us. Gi- AD-is Harrei.i, ' ates B.A. 452 W.

It was a gray winter ' s afternoon. I was sitting in my rocm trying to accomplish the difficult feat of studying and keeping awake at the same time. My eyelids would close once in a while and forget to open. I made a last desperate effort to focus my attention on my book. What I saw caused me to start and peer more closely at the pages before me. Did the figure in that picture move? It did. I turned a page and lo, tiny figures moved about upon the leaves. I looked at the cover of this most strange but interesting book. " Events in 1940 " was the title. I began to scan the pages eagerly, being a woman, and therefore possessing extraordinary curiosity. On the very first page I saw seated at a large desk, a man, slight of stature, but looking exceedingly intelligent. Beneath the picture I read, " Dr. Howard Richardson, A.B., M.A., D.D., X.Y.Z., President of Elon College, N C. " Just then who should trip lightly into the room but the president ' s " better half, " my former classmate, Wiley Stout . Glad to find my friends so happy and prosperous, 1 turned another page. There was Frank Allston giving a lecture on " How to Become Popular with the Fair Sex. " I thought he would improve with old age. The next page revealed Marie Nobles, a confirmed old maid, keeping a Home for Homeless Cats. I thought of Marie ' s happy, hectic college days, and sighed. Morgan Stanley had discovered a, lotion which, if applied to bald heads, would cause to spring therefrom an abundant growth of hair. Emily Midyette had married a famous piano tuner and was now Madam Egg Nog. I was glad indeed that my friend ' s greatest ambition was to be realized. James and Britt Green owned a hotel at Elon. A majestic building it was, with twenty stories. Darden Jones owned a hut dog stand in Burlington and gained many customers by singing the sad refrain, " The Puppy Who Became a Hot Oog. " Helping him in this enterprise was Pussyfoot Johnson, who accompanied him at times upon his saxophone. Mary Stout was governor of North Carolina and filled her office well. Ed Gilliam and Paul Braxton were editors of the " Elon Ciazette, " which had a large circulation extending to all parts of the I ' nited States. The married members of our class, Messrs. Bruton, Arrowood and Jarrett, had formed a literary club and were writing a book entitled, " How to be Happy Though Married. " This book required a great deal of thought and much imagination. Mary Addie White was a famous organist, thrilling thousands of people every night over the radio. Bruce Cates was a famous prima donna, touring the world, .singing before kings and queens. She sang with such sweetness and pathos that even the kings would break down and weep violently ' . Touring with her as her accompanist was W. M. Sexton, once voted the most handsome in the Class of ' 27. Gladys Yates found that one may do a great work in converting one person — or being ' con- verted by one person — either way. It worked, and she was launched happily forth upon the sad sea of matrimony. Page sixty-four F?iHI.FF 3 1 Cur ' Tw W ' EyEN ' Robert Hook %vas a hermit, living in a tiny cabin in the mountains, with his dog and his gun as his sole companions. Elizabeth McCollnm, who had had a great desire to " see the wor ' .d, " was traveling to all parts of the world demonstrating Madam Coo-Coo ' s reducing exercises. Her companions were Madge Woods and Ruth Home, illustrating " Before and After " taking these wonder-working exercises. Mr. A. K. Moore, having been disappointed in love, was spending the remainder of his ilavs warning youthful lovers to beware of women, who, he contended, were ever false. Ciwendolyn Patron ' s name blazed in brilliant letters far and wide. She had become a famous actress. Erown Fogleman was the meek husband of this great lady. Nannie Sue Dunn, Sallie Kate Ingram and Alice Haldwin, tired of the wicked ways of the world, had become missionaries. . ' Mian Walker was running for the presidency ot the I ' nited States. His faithtful friend and booster was Woodie, who was touring the states making " stump speeches " in Allan ' s behalf. Kathleen Paschall had at last found her " preacher, " and was happy indeed, having long had a desire to fill just a capacity. J. D. Gorrell, who was so fond of cats, had become a missi mary and was devoting all of his time and money to the ponderous ([uestion, " Why does the cat come back? " Assisting him in this worthv cause was his staunch friend, Flossie McLeod, who had won a great name for himself by his famous poem, " To a Cat. " Helen Rhodes had been married three times and divorced three times. It seems that she preferred men with red hair, and men thus decorated have such tempers She was looking for a fourth husband and had decided to try a blond. Bessie Culpepper was a famous poet, having received wonderful training and experience during her senior year at college. Herman Edge had a barber shop at Elon and was doing a fine business. His wife, how- ever, made his life miserable by accusing him of flirting with the many co-eds whose " crown of glory " he cut. Auman had married, and to his great sorrow, was " henpecked. " Fernando J. Bello had become a movie actor and was in Hollywood. He was a perfect sheik, and received hundreds of letters daily begging for his photograph. Charles Newman, our one-time woman hater, was greatly reformed. He had been married four times and was wooing the fifth with all his heart and money. Mary Tome Hughes was the young ladies ' physical culture director of Elon College. Dwight Heougher was an evangelist, and having grown a goatee, managed to look some- what dignified. His sister. Alma, went around with him as an inspiration and added attraction. Mr. Flowers had received a proposal from an Elon co-ed during Leap Year, aTid had accepted. Kenneth Hoyle and Ingle Cobb were clowns in a circus, and added brightness to the world by causing the public to laugh long and heartily. Clyde Rainey claimed that he had discovered perpetual motion — his wife ' s tongue. Dale Sanders was president of the street car company of Elon. W. L. Hasslett and Hruce Boland owned a theater in Elon, and were on the road to be- coming millionaires. Nila Amick was coaching a class of budding young poets- in Elon College. E. P. McLeod was a designer of the latest fashions in men ' s wearing apparel. Suddenly the book fell from my hands. I picked it up and found it to lie merely my French reader. Back to reality! Back to bells and whistles that insist upon clanging and shrieking just at the time one wants to sleep! Back to " Harper ' s Hash " and " Lizzie a la Bill! " Back to pipes that burst during the coldest weather, and radiators that refuse to radiate! But how trivial are such things at times.

These years ha e heen filled with many happy experiences, mingled with quite a number of less happier ones. Three years ago we came. Our hopes were great, our ambitions reached to the stars. Some of our hopes have been blasted, but out of this disappoint- ment has come the determination to overcome these difficulties and rise to heights until now unknown. The Class of ' 28 has much for which it should be proud. We are proud of the fact that we have successfully completed three laps of our race and now stand on the threshold of our senior year. In the fall of 1924, a husky bunch of youngsters entered Elon College as fresh- men. Some of us (if not all) had an exalted opinion of ourselves, but we were soon placed in depths so low by the wise and commanding sophomores that for a time we were submerged except for our " greenness. " However, on the first of November we elected E. W. McCauley president, to- gether with our other officers as our leaders. From this moment to the present we have worked as a unit and have accomplished much. During our freshman year we played a large part in athletics. Most of the mem- bers of the varsity basketball team were freshmen. Many of our number won laurels for their college on the football and baseball teams. In the fall of 1925 we came back to college wise sophs. It was our duty to give the freshmen the " once over. " Paul Walker, our leader for this year, proved himself capable and efficient. Our class placed many men on the varsity teams this year. Dan Long Newman, " Hawkeye, " was captain of our basketball team, which was credited with many victories. Many of our class also were on the baseball team which had the signal honor of defeating Carolina twice in one year. Our year of wise sophistication has passed and we stand on the hill now as sinijile juniors. Slaughter has proved himself a worthy leader. E. W. McCauley was captain of our football team, and quite a number of our class have participated in all of the sports. We are also making history as a literary group. The Junior Class ranks high in scholarsship. We work together in complete harmony. It is the desire of each mem- ber of our class to do that which is best for the group. The Class of ' 28 has great ambitions. We are looking into the future with ex- pectant hearts. The wide open world is waiting for us. In one more year we are going forth to conquer it, and while climbing the ladder of success will win a name for which our Alma Mater will be proud.

A total of two hundred have enrolled under its banner. The college was very glad to see us, whereas many brilliant receptions were given in our honor in the various dormi- tories. We soon settled down to work, however, and held our first class meeting on November 4. At that time Ralph Coggins was elected as our president. From that time the Class of ' 29 began to be seen and heard. Our athletic record is enviable. In the two years of our history, members of the Class of ' 29 have scored two-thirds of the total number of points made by the football team. In addition to placing seven men on the varsity basketball squad, we walked away with the class cham- pionship by winning eight games out of nine played. But our activities are not limited to the field of sports. The sixty- six members we furnished the literary societies have ably upheld the Class of ' 29. Our four intercollegiate debators showed that we are not lacking along that line. Sixty-five from our ranks have joined social clubs, and in every other phase of student activities our part has been equally as large. This year we have started off by having the captain of the bakset- ball team and the captain-elect of the football team selected from our midst. And under the able leadership of Dace Jones we are striving to continue that career which has been so well begun. Page seventy-eighl V .¥v i ciir TwE WjSEy Soph pnomore Ch Po In that far-off singing, Which life to us is bringing, We hear the note of victory singing: " There ' s a class so wondrous fine, It ' s the grand old Class of ' 29. " Where ' er we wander Of ' 29 we ' ll grow still fonder As this we ponder: " She has taught us trouble earnestly to bear, And each task to perform with minutest care. " As we bear life ' s songs of sorrow and delight, Memory will wing in highest, breathless flight Back to ' 29 to glide with rapture beneath the tinted light Unveiling all her triumphs won By art or toil beneath the sun. While pacing Fate ' s lonely beat. If fair Thalia you should meet, She ' d say to the tune of dainty, twinkling feet: " Tireless toil and sprightly dance go hand in hand they found, ' 29 knew the winsome way to Laughtertown. " And when ' 29 will have come and gone, We ' ll leave a record no man can scorn ; In the years to come when we ' re far apart In thoughts, in deeds we ' ll be just one heart. Men will say of us in tones reverent and low, " ' 29 — truest friend and noblest foe. " And when the song of trumpets shall sing in our ears, They ' ll tell the tender legend that trembles here: " ' 29 has lived that Creed of Creeds, Law of Love — Life of Deeds. " Class Poet.

It was during this week that over a hundred high school graduates matriculated here. What there was so charm- ing about our personality we can ' t say — but all the faculty members, the deans, and even Doctor Harper gave us a hearty welcome. When the upperclassmen arrived thev too gave us a warm reception, especially the " sophs. " November 2 will always be remembered as a historical event, for not only was it national election day, but also the day upon which we, the Class of ' 30, organized and chose " Jake " Messersmith for our president. We didn ' t stop at this; all during the year we have been achieving great things that are helping to put Elon on the map, and are showing our professor what we are. We were repre- sented on the varsity football squad by Branncr and Englebach. With the assurance that through perseverance we shall all reach the goal toward which we are climbing, we are looking forward with great delight to our remaining three years under the Maroon and (iold banner. It ' s Frcshy that, and Freshy this! " But why should we of " thirty " care? For our class shall never miss The chance in Elon ' s pride to share. We wear our caps without a scowl. Our work for upper classmen do. Although we ' re green, we never growl, For we are " thirtys ' " heroes true. And here we stand all in array To live and learn like college men. And all our dues to Elon pay. More dues than there have ever been. We have an aim that ' s better still. To serve mankind both foe and friend. A hardship is to us a thrill To spur us onward to this end. O how wc love Maroon and CJold, As Freshmen never did before. How we rejoice when we are told How Elon boys roll up the score.

In his office, on the campus, down town, on Comer Field, in the gymnasium, or in " pep " meetings, he proved himself all for athletics. What more could be said for him? A. R. V.AxCLEAvn Head Coach Football Coach VanCleave came here from Indiana to take the football helm at a time when the football prospects were the most uncertain they have ever been here. He soon won a place in the hearts of the student body by proving himself a thorough good sport and a regular fellow. He was handicapped in his football work by having a rather heavy teaching schedule, but the season closed and left in our mind the picture of a man who would fight to the last. W. M. Jav Head Coach Basketball and Baseball Dr. Jay is another newcomer to our campus who soon earned his place here as a good fellow and a man. He piloted the basketball team through a very good season, and put out our best baseball team, with the assistance of " Bunn " Hcarn. He well deserved the goodwill of the students. Dale O. Sanders Assistant Coach Football Sanders came to us from Drake University to take his place here as a student coach, and as such he deserves a lot of credit. He is a hard worker and was a real value to the football team. He brought much of the Mid-Western aggressiveness to our team, and displayed a real love for the game. Francis S. Sites Assistant Coach Basketball Sites is another student coach who deserves a lot of the credit due out basketball team. He first made himself useful to our athletics in our football line, and later as assistant to Dr. Jay. He is a cool, level-headed basketball man, and his influence was felt in the games. Howard Richardson Assistant Coach Football " Rich " is a product of our own campus. He has a creditable record for three years on the varsity eleven, and this year was chosen to coach the yearling squad. He made a very good showing with his squad, and trained several men to take places on the varsity.

Piu c iiiw liunArid six Fh.w ' i curA ' TwEKfr-T A Summary of tke 1926 Foottall Season S we look back over the 1926 football season we are confronted with the following very salient facts: The season opened with an entirely new coaching staff. This in itself would naturally make a season difficult, but we must add to that the fact that the schedule this year was one that would have done Justice to a college of about twice the size of Elon. We had on the schedule four out of the " Big Five " in this state, and Hampden- Sidney in Virginia, and Georgetown I ' niversity in Washington. This in itself would have been enough to dishearten any team or coach, but even yet there is another big thing that we have not considered, and that is the apparent jinx that went with the team through the whole season and kept some of the best men out of every game. There was about an average of nine men on the hospital list at every %veek-end. Out of this series of trying events there comes a storv of bravery, prompted by a great school spirit and a love for the game. Those men who were able, came out and stuck through all for thei love of Alraa Mater. Special attention Is deserved by Captain McCauley, who played every minute of every game, playing mo st of the time with his knee in very bad shape. The season opened at Davidson on the nineteenth of September. Two untried and raw teams met on Richardson Field that day and the " Wildcats " came out with the score on their side. This game was played on a hot day, and the game was from the first a battle that would go to the team having the most reserve material. After this game there came injury after injury, and the list was appalling and disheartening. There were times when it seemed that there would not be enough men to play the games. Even under these handicaps there are several high spots in the season that deserve special mention. The game against N. C. State at Raleigh was one bright spot in the season. The game was hard-fought, and resulted in a ten to nothing score in favor of State. The team went to Washington with two or three injured men along, and left several at home unable to make the trip. They scored two touchdowns against Georgetown, and thus surprised the whole state. The remainder of the season was a slow and desultory affair, winding up in a defeat at the hands of our most hated rival, Guilford. With an unconi|uerable spirit the Christian warriors look toward the next season determined to blaze an unforgettable trail of retribution across its horizon.

Kelley Guard, Captain George «as elected captain of this years ' team because of his brilliant and consistent work of last year. He has been the real leader of his team this year, both in offensive and defensive work. His speed, combined with his accurate passing and ability at finding the goal, gave him all the qualities of a real basketball player. Cl.arence J. Crutchfield Guard " Tobe " is known for his work at center during the last two seasons. But he played an even better part at guard this year. He was always between his opponents and the goal, when they had the ball. We believe the results of some games would have been different if he had not injuTed his leg in the latter part of the season and vas forced to stay out of the game on account of it. Garnet W. Bock Fnrivatit We all knew what Bock would do this year, and he did that and more. He really played a stellar part in every game he was in. Garnet is exceptionally apt in finding the weak points in his opponents ' defense and profiting by their mistakes. Page one hundred eleven r ' - r( V .¥vSi ciLii mTwE W ' Paul Caddell Guard " Pill " came back to the squad this .vear after an absence of one vear. He was a varsity man in 1925. He showed the same speed and fight that won him his record of former days. Paul every game he was in. This fighting spirit will win for him fought hard wherever he showed the every minute of may go. Dan Long Newman Forivard " Hawkeye " was captain of last year ' s team, and the experience seems to have given him an even better eye for the basket, because he was high scorer for the squad this year. When it comes to " hooking " the ball with the left arm Dan is always in the limelight. When he throws at the basket, the score-keeper changes his marks. He has one more year in basketball, and we look forward to an even better performance. Robert Earl Sims Center " Squire " fought his way up from last year ' s reserve team to a regular place as center this year. When it comes to reaching up in the air and tipping the old ball he is right there with the goods. He got the tip from almost every center he went up against. With two more years to play, we are sure to hear more of him even than we have in the past. Page one hundred twelve V j vSi cdrmTwEr@Y ♦if-? ? E. E. GOEBEL Forward Goebel is another left-hamleii player who left his mark in basketball this year. He was a con- sistent worker, and showed great skill for a new man. This was " Percy ' s " first year at Elon, and we look forward to more and better years in basketball for him and for Alma Mater. H. T. KriRD Guard Ho le was a star in class basketball last year, and from that meagre beginning he climbed to the varsity this year and showed that he had the same old spirit he had previously evidenced in the class games. Efird is the type of man that gives a team the " last ditch " fighting (jnality. Charles Vernon Briggs. Jr. Center " Lefty, " as he is better known, came to us with a good high school record am! a strong deter- mination to maintain that record here. He showed fine skill in guarding and locating the basket. We certainly expect to hear of him in the future of Elon athletics. Paffe one hundred thirteen ' ■ " ■; - !

Six years had he worked with Elon athletic teams, and in this his last season, he had a marked success. Of the games played in the state, eight were won and seven were lost. These games included contests with the strongest teams and institutions in the state. And we proudly point to the fact that two of the wins were from the state university. Of the games played with out of the state teams, we had as good if not better results. Twelve letters were awarded to men taking part in this season, and all of them made a great contribution to the success of the season. Bryant, Fogleman and Shep- herd on the mound; D. Shepherd behind the plate; Lindley, Raub, " Red " Crutch- field, " Tobe " Crutchfield in the inner garden ; Slaughter, Walker, Rraxton and Sims in the outer garden were the men who worked for this team and who made possible its record. Of these men who were on the team last year we regret to note that four of them will not be on the list this year. These are Lindley, Raub, Fogleman and Bryant. Their loss will be keenly felt, but we feel sure that Captain Paul Braxton, with the help of the men who did come back, and Ed Gilliam of former days, should lead his team to the state championship.
