College Sophomore Class
For us a dream came true when we entered
Ferrum in '49, We began as the largest fresh-
man class in the history of the school. All the
way has not been easy, but we have learned
that 'Cevery dark cloud has a silver lining"
and we have striven to endure until the lining
Although many have dropped by the way
and some new faces have appeared, we are
proud of the record we have made as freshmen
and as sophomores. With us are six ministerial
students and fourteen Life Service Band mem-
bers who have helped us- uphold our ideals
and to do our very best.
FRONT: Burkett, Scztterjield, Mfr. fohnron, Via
BACK: Mcddfn, Powell, Perkinr
As sophomores we have carried on under
the leadership of Robinson H. McAden, presi-
dent, Joseph D. Perkins, vice president,
Eunice Via, secretary-treasurer, Elise Satter-
field, reporter, Sammie Burkett and Phillip E.
Powell, student government representatives,
and Mrs. Ethel M. Johnson, class sponsor.
Everyone was busy as we successfully
planned the Christmas Banquet, developing
the theme, "Peace on Earth," in the decora-
tions and in the program. It was our privilege
to have with us Dr. B. M. Beckham, founder
of the college. He gave us an inspiring message
on the "Meaning of Christmas."
We sponsored the annual
beauty pageant on February
I4, presented a chapel pro-
gram March 85 and we expect
to have an outing before the
year is over. '
As We move forward to re-
ceive our honors, we are con-
scious that our goal has been
reached but that we must keep
striving for higher ones. Min-
gled with our feeling of joy
of accomplishment will be
tears of sorrow, for We know
that our paths will part and
that the hours We've shared
will soon be but memories.
Regardless of the pain of
leaving behind dear friends,
we step forth proudly to
accept the challenge that the
world holds for us today.

On September 14, 1950,
the freshman class began to
settle into dormitory life, and
to arrange schedules of classes
Early in college life the
freshmen elected Fred Gilley,
president, William Berry, vice
president, June Joyner, secre-
tary-treasurer, Jimmy Joe
Watkins, reporter, and Ann
Bryan and Wilford Spradlin,
representatives to the Student
Government. Mrs. Franklin
Parker was chosen sponsor.
The first activity spon-
sored by the class was the
annual hike to Pigg River.
Some will remember this beau-
tiful Saturday afternoon only
in terms of the number of blisters they ac-
quired on feet not used to hiking, while others
will remember with pleasure the good food,
the fun, and the fellowship.
Under the guidance of the class the
Thanksgiving banquet on November 21 was
planned around the theme, "Be Thankful."
This was also stressed in the challenging
message of the speaker, Dr. H. H. Hughes,
Superintendent of the Roanoke District of the
Virginia Methodist Conference. The close
cooperation among the committees and the
entire membership of class made this occasion
an outstanding success.
The freshman class began the year with
ninety members, but during the first semester
a number found it impossible to continue and
FRONT! Mr.f. Parker, Bryan, joyner
BACK: Spradlin, Gilley, Berry, Watkinx
dropped out, among them the following who

Edward Bowling, Bill Hutto, Glenn McCall,
Bobby Redford, Johnny Smith, and Jimmy
Each year the freshman class elects one
girl as attendant in the May Court. This year
the honor went to Marlies Scaggs.
The interest and guidance of Mrs. Parker
have been an inspiration to every member of
the class and have resulted in a growth in
spirit since September.
It is the sincere hope of the class that it
will continue to grow for another year under
the guidance of the president and faculty of
Ferrum Junior College.

FLOWER: Irif COLORS: Red and White
This year the juniors, sponsored by Professor Charles
H. Walton, joined with the seniors in all school activities.
Under his guidance the department rapidly made history.
The oHicers were: Ray McAleXander, president, Francine
Pendleton, vice president, Bessie Davis, secretary-treas-
urer, Annette Flynn, representative to the Student
Government, and Glennette Beck, reporter.
A Womanless Wedding and Variety Show this year
provided funds for the annual gift from the senior class to
the school. The audience will long remember with pleasure
the thrills, excitement, and laughter that these provided.
Many of the members of the department took active
parts in school activities, chiefly the Home Economics
Club and the Life Service Band. Some supported the
basketball teams as cheerleaders.
Two senior girls represented the department in
eil '25 l
the May Day festivities, Glennette Beck, chosen by the
student body as maid of honor, and Bessie Davis, attend-
ant. A member of the department also had the distinction
of being chosen "NIiss Ferrum of I95I7', Glennette Beck,
winner of the annual beauty contest. Other department
contestants were Annette Flynn, Francine Pendleton,
Bessie Davis, Frances Shaffer, and Betty Bowling.
This year at F. C. has been great and will linger
long in the memories of the juniors and seniors. Perhaps
the seniors will cherish it more because it was "their yearf,
As they received their class rings and commencement
invitations, they began anxiously to look forward to

that Ferrum has ever had. We hope that it will contain
cherished memories Of the Wonderful days that We have

Our lirst task came when the representative of The
Stone Printing Company came Out tO show us samples Of
covers and to help us select the cover for the BEACON. We
hope you will be pleased with our choice.
Then the job Of soliciting advertisements confronted
us. We went to nearby cities and towns and worked On
this project until the last minute.
Nleantime photographers from Andre Studio in
Lexington came down and took both the individual and
group pictures. Then We began collecting snapshots and
Write-ups about the various Organizations.
Only then could We make the dummy, do the typing,
and arrange the pictures. Finally, Our task was finished
and the book was turned Over to be printed.
VVe hope that you will enjoy this annual as much as
We enjoyed preparing it.

Four members of the staff entered the armed forces
during the year: Bill Hutto, Johnny Smith, Bobby Red-
ford, and Phil Powell.
There comes a time in the career of every college
newspaper staff when it must turn over the responsi-
bilities and duties to new hands. When we do that this
year, we are hoping that in the future the Echo will be
an enlarged, printed paper and will improve each year.

had functioned previously. The Administrative
Council consists of fifteen members, seven faculty
members and eight students: Dr. Ferdinand
Derlc, academic dean, Rev. Luther Flynn, dean
of men, Miss Eloise Bradshaw, dean of women,
Professor Gilmer W. Callison, dean of work,
Professor Donald Flynn, assistant dean of men,
Miss Edith Haynes, assistant dean of women,
Professor Charles H. Walton, director of counsel-
ing, and college students, Bridget Bailey, Sara
Lee Comer, Mary Catherine Uverfelt, Jack
Powell, Bobby McAden, Bill Kessler, Marvin
Tigner, and Richard Scott.
The purpose of the Administrative Council is
to handle all disciplinary problems concerning the
rules and regulations set up for the school, as
well as matters of a more serious nature.
LEFT TO RIGHT: Kerfler, Pfofefsorf Walton, D. Flynn, L. Flynn, Callifon, Tigner, Dr. Derle,

A student dean was chosen from the eight
students for each floor in each dormitory and his
job is to work under the Administrative Council.
His duty is to promote cleanliness, comfort,
good citizenship and proper conduct in his part of
the dormitory and to be a leader among his group.
If there is not a problem which would concern
the school as a whole the boys who act as student
deans and the faculty members in the boys'
dormitory meet to discuss the problems there and
the girls who act as student deans and the faculty
members in the girls' dormitory hold meetings
for the same purpose in that building.
The Council is proud of the fact that it has
been found necessary to have very few general
meetings, as the students have all shown co-
operation with the Council. The Council takes
pride in the attitude which has been shown
through the year by the student body as a whole.

The ideal and heart of Ferrum Junior College
is found-in the campus church. Schoolfield
Memorial Church was built in 1927 with
contributions from' interested persons, the
largest contributor being R. A. Schoolfield, of
Danville, Va., whose name the church bears.
The building itself, constructed of red brick
with white Doric columns rising from the
porch, is approached by a wide flight of steps.
Inside, steps lead from the wide vestibule to
the balcony belfry. The sanctuary is decorated
in gray with mission oak pulpit furniture and
woodwork. The two-manual Estey pipe organ
is used by organ students as well as for services.
The organ was donated by Edwin Ivey of
Lynchburg in memory of his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. W. C. Ivey.
The marble baptismal font was presented
as a memorial to Mrs. Mary Ellen Bland by
her family. The bronze altar cross and match-
ing candlesticks were presented by the classes
of 1949 and 1950, respectively.
Dr. N. H. Davis has been appointed pastor
by the Virginia Annual Conference. I-Ie is
assisted by the five ordained ministers on the
faculty: Ferdinand Derk, Donald Flynn,
Luther Flynn, Allan R. ,Moore, and Charles H.
The church is organized and functions as a
local church. Faculty and students serve on
the oflicial board of the church. .This affords
the students an opportunity to become familiar
with 'church administration. The services of
the church not only offer experiences of
worship to all persons on campus,'but offer,
also, leadership training to the students. The
student choir provides the music for services,
and, on occasion, students occupy the pulpit.
The church school is attended by faculty,
their families, and students., The Student
Fellowship and the Life Service Band offer
further opportunities of service to the students.
The women on campus serve through a well-
organized unit of the Woman's Society of
Except for contributions made by 'the
faculty and students to their "church home
away from home," Schoolfield Memorial
church has no income. Church finances are
handled by a student member of the official
board, under the direction of the chaplain.
After conference ,assessments are met, the
amount remaining in the treasury is set aside
in a building fund which will be used to make
needed repairs on the church buildings.

Ferrum School Song
LOVE FOR FERRUM
On a sweet and sunny knoll, 'mid Virginia's mountains old,
We are building up our school so great and dear,
We'll be loyal to our trust, we'll be kind and true and just,
And we'll rally to old FERRUM, never fear.
Onward, upward We are marching, day by day We'll braver beg
We are standing for the right, and the sky above is bright,
And we'1l bear old FERRUM's banner to the height.
Like our mountains grand and blue, We Will eier be strong and true
And we'll stand for everything that's pure and good,
As our rivers crystal roll, so in purity of soul,
We'll be loyal to our colors as We should.
We will be a loyal band, We will love our native land,
We will trust in God and ever do the right,
We will love our dear old state, and we'll try to make her great,
And We'll hold aloft her banner with our might.
In the midst of all our joys, we Virginia girls and boys
Never will forget the loving hands that gave,
That in these beloved halls We might hear when duty calls,
And the lowly and the fallen learn to save.
