May you preserve it, cherish it, and forever hold it dear May this book serve to revive the love which exists in the inner recesses of your heart for Florida Southern College, your school, and may it in latet years serve as an unbreakable bond which links to you the friends that you have made here We have chosen a simple but, we think, a very fitting theme, for any educational institution It is that of " Books " We are all looking forward to the opening of the new Roux library, when we shall be able to add new " dishes " to our already varied intellectual diet and when we have sampled a variety of " courses, " all of us assuredly will say with Bacon, " Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts; others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention " A word should be said concerning the layout of the Annual, We have tried to picture here the evolution of a Freshman or the Freshman Class, showing the gradual process through which they acquaint them- selves with college life and activities.

Our first task was that of finding our rooms, registering for classes and adapting ourselves to our new environment. With these duties in mind, we marched to classes to the melodious music of the Chapel Chimes. Bewilderment and confusion met us at every corner. Dr. McCowan, however, made us feel at ease with our responsibilities and became one of our first new friends. The friendly and sympathetic greetings from the faculty and upper Classmen caused us to feel much more comfortable. But when we began to relax and enjoy the routine of college life, the storm struck with all its fury. Upper classmen began to dictate our every move. The unpopular " Pigtail " hair-do invaded our curly locks. The customary use of cosmetics was reversed. Girls were denied these beauty-aids while application was made to the facial contours of the male " Rats. " Clothes were worn backwards, " Rat Court " was attended, and " Air Raid " precautions were practiced Along with every other part of college life came the excitement of " Rush Week, " Bids for membership in sororities and fraternities were extended. Here we found our greatest problem. Which bid should we accept! ' Finally a decision was reached Then the glory of " Rushing " ended and we became lowly " Pledges. " The storm is now over. Quietness and Confidence prevails. In reviewing the ac- tivities of the year, we realize that we have only tasted the glamor, the excitement, the joys and thrills of college routine.

BOOK II Ou, Coil ege THE BELLS OF OLD SOUTHERN The Bells of old Southern Awake at the dawn. And peal through the flowerland When twilight is gone. And thru the long sunlight They lilt from afar That Florida Southern Is youth ' s guiding star. The Bells of old Southern Are chiming a song, That echoes the triumph Of right over wrong. And, deep in the groveland And temples of light. Their song is the music Of honor and right. The Bells of old Southern In Florida ' s sky Are calling her children To conquer or die. And over the lakeland Their welcoming chime Is hailing tomorrow With purpose sublime. CHORUS: The Bells of old Southern Are memory ' s homing For hearts that are loyal, Her century tells. And we shall remember, When far away roaming, The )oyful sound in spirit — bound By Southern Bells ROBERT MacGOWAN harden of iJileditation yos 7.. l 9i ;j„oLls MUi ( olletje iJiciijhts Church iSemintiis edge Mall tSttnlcnl - ' icIivKy iOiilltluuj 3 -iesulcnl s cHome ieipkin SBamI SUl ifilbe ' it Lfymntisiitm i_yWusiV JLuholaloly Allen fSpivey zrlall ne zL residen I s iUViessage TO THE STUDENTS OF FLORIDA SOUTHERN COLLEGE: This is my nineteenth time to write a little message for the Interlachen. Every year I have said about the same thing for the reason that there isn ' t much that is nev to say. I suppose that the first thing I should do is congratulate the editor, and the business manager, and all those who have shared in the making of this Annual a success. Unless one has actually experienced the difficulties of putting out an annual, he has no conception of the magnitude of the task, and, especially, publishing it on time. Every- one in connection with the annual has worked hard, and I think they have worked efficiently. Of course, the annual, itself, will speak much louder than anything I can say. Then I must say a little word to the seniors. How good it has been to have these young men and women with us for four years. Now that they are ready to graduate, we feel that we are just getting acquainted with them. However, they are not leaving the college. They will always be members of it. They are merely enlarging their activi- ties. From time to time, they will report back to us about what they have done for their Alma Mater. To the Sophomores, and Juniors, and Seniors of next year, 1 want to wish you a good summer, and that everyone of you will return to Florida Southern for 1944-45. This next year is to be, I hope, the greatest year in the history of the college. The college, itself, will be 60 years old, and the present writer will have been in the college 20 years. We want to take advantage of its 60th birthday and do something outstand- ing for our Alma Mater. Then there are " our boys " fighting for us. They are still a part of the college. It is the college fighting for what we believe is right. 1 know all of our hearts are beating in sympathy with them, and we, ourselves, are doing our best to keep our part of the task well done. Blessings on every man and woman who has enrolled in this college year of 1943-44. LUDDM. SPIVEY President BOOK CjuI faculty Every student of Florida Southern College is grateful for the enduring patience and untiring efforts of our faculty. We appreciate the efforts they have exerted to send us out as well equipped students. Our Faculty Section is divided into several departments; each helps to make the unity of education possible. The administration has worked as trojans to keep our records and courses straight. The art department has turned out masterful sketches of Southern ' s beauty. The education department has done an excellent job of sending out intern teachers so that they might be trained to be the master teachers of tomorrow. Probably one of the most important departments of our school has been the School of Religion. Its dream of tomorrow is the growth of a seminary at Southern, in order to be able to graduate ministers and teachers of religious education that will be equipped for the religious leadership of tomorrow. Outstanding services have been rendered by our English, language, social science, and science departments. For a graduate to be a well-rounded individual, educationally, he needs to have delved into all of these departments. Along with the beauty of Southern goes the beauty of music. This department has furnished Southern with concerts by the band, choruses by the glee club and hymns by the choir. All of this has made Southern a happy and enjoyable place to live. We could not close our section without acknowledging the work that has been done by our cooperatives. They have been guardians of our health, guardians of our time, and guardians of our records. We appreciate the many services these cooperatives have rendered. cr trustees of Florida iSouthem College T, T. Scott, LL.D. Chancellor J.

BOOK IV iSopn opnomores The Chimes rang — calling us to another year of school, which meant another year of education, fun, and excitement. This year we were no longer the " rats, " we were upper-classmen-sophomores. No longer were we dictated to, but instead we became the dictators. We came on the Campus calling everyone by name, letting the new comers know we had been here before and giving the Freshmen the " evil eye. " Campus life, to us, needed no orientation, we had experienced it all and had all the necessary knowledge to make our way facile. We were just at that stage in our education where we were willing to believe all we read and all that our professors told us — we swallowed. Later, however we were to discover we had been disillusioned. Many of our classmates were called into the armed forces of our country. We regretted to give them up, but we are glad that they are fighting for a great cause. When we learn of some campaign they have been in, we beam with |oy because they are representatives of our class.

In registering for classes, careful consideration was given to our course of study for we realized that our future success depended largely upon our decision of starting to think for ourselves- -we had tasted and swallowed, but now we are ready to chew our knowledge — we now take our education more seriously. We Juniors have many things to be proud of. It is out of our class that the Southern Trio came These girls have attained a notable degree of success — we are proud of them! A member of the winning team of a debate held in Deland was in our class. Members of the Junior Class have been working and their effort has been seen. We Juniors have tried to look upon the underclassmen as a parent looks upon a child. We realize their weaknesses, having had them ourselves. We are trying to show them that the apparently easy way out is not always as easy as it seems. We want them to learn to chew their education and their books because that, after all, is the only sure way of good digestion. Carolyn Jane Hudson Senator 3 unions CHESTER BARNETT Jacksonville.

John Milton . . . Books are the legacies that a great genius leaves to mankind, which are delivered down from generation to generation. Knowledge of books in a man of business is a torch in the hands of one who is willing and able to show those who are bewildered, the way which leads to prosperity and welfare. . . . Joseph Addison . . . This, books can do, — nor this alone; they give New views to life, and teach us how to live; They soothe the grieved, the stubborn they chastise. Fools they admonish, and confirm the wise: Their aid they yield to all They never shun The man of sorrow, nor the wretch undone: Unlike the hard, the selfish, and the proud. They fly not sullen from the suppliant crowd; Nor tell to various people various things. But show to subjects what they show to kings. . . . George Crabbe. May blessings be upon the heads of Cadmus, the Phoenicians, or whoever it was that invented books ' No book that will not improve by repeated readings deserves to be read at all The true university of these days is a collection of books.

V ■ i " , ' • i " : ■• " ' - ■ BOOK VI It seemed good to know that this was our last year of undergraduate work, and yet the more we thought about it, the more we wished that we were just starting. People tell us that we have about finished our education, but these people are wrong — • we have )ust begun. We realize that here at college we have learned theory and that we have learned how to think for ourselves, but now comes the hardest test of all — harder than any we have had in our four years of college, the reality of putting into practice that which we have learned. We have |ust finished preparing ourselves to become educated. The rules that once seemed unnecessary and valueless, now seem to us imperative. In our Freshman year we could not understand why we had rules or restrictions placed upon us, but now as we look back on our earlier years we realize the need of such restraints We now appreciate our earlier training because it has woven into our very structure a training that has helped to develop the dignified men and women we are today. During our stay at college we have tried to learn just how to get the most out of everything. We have learned not only to taste, swallow and chew knowledge, but we have also learned how to digest it. We are able to read a book or article and to digest the important material from it.

With the numerous activities we have at Florida Southern College, we feel sure that all students will be able to find an avocation of their choice. The participation in these activities enriches the lives of the students in leadership, speaking ability, organ- izing, financing, and above all how to live socially. We highly recommend all of these organizations; however, be conservative, choose only a few and cooperate fully. i enate The Student Senate promotes harmonious relations between the students and the administration Its members are made up of representatives of the social organizations, classes and community groups. Its activities this year included the directing and sponsoring of " rat " week, with its president acting as |udge: effecting a change in campus elections, soliciting workers for the building of the Roux library, and Founders ' week.

Any girl who does not join a sorority has the privilege of joining this organization. The emblem of the Independent Women contains a torch of knowledge and a key to friendship. These qualities, scholarship, and friendship, are the ones for which the group stands. Meetings are held weekly on a rather informal basis. Here the members enjoy the fellowship of the group and plan their future activities. OFFICERS OLIVE CHAPMAN . . . President VIVIAN COFFEE MARjORIE SMITH . Vice-President JEANNETTE CALBREATH Rec.

Books are saving priceless man hours by making available, to all who can read, all the skills of all the crafts so vital to victory. Books are explaining to a bewildered nation why we fight — how, and where, and whom we fight. Books reveal our friends, unmask our enemies. Books help us to understand our country, our world, the history, the geography, the people, their customs, their ambitions. Books take us where our men are fighting and make them better fighting men. Books give us all that mankind has done and dreamed and planned. Whatever man has accomplished or hopes to accomplish is yours — in books. ARE BOOKS ESSENTIAL? Try to imagine a democracy at war — without books, " Malcolm Johnson President, Book Publishers Bureau, Inc. BOOK IX i tlilteics We at Florida Southern College realize that in order for a man to be able to live in this world victoriously, he not only needs the best mental training that can be offered, but he also needs good physical training With this point in mind, we have carried on our sport activities this year. Although our equipment has been limited because of war restrictions, we have been able to promote a full intramural sport program for both men and women. Contests have been held in the following sports: football, volleyball, basketball, Softball, badminton, tennis, scooter hockey, speedbail, and track. Our intramural boards have done a splendid )ob in carrying on these activities, and their labors are appreciated.

Three team sports have been played with Delta Zeta leading in each one With its usual thrills and spills basketball was top ranking sport in popularity and excitement. A tie-off game was played in this sport as Delta Zeta and Alpha Chi tied for first place at the end of the season. Individual sports, tennis, archery, badminton, ping-pong, and shuffleboard, are being played tour- nament style, " Doll Baby " Johnston is top ranking tennis star to date and it looks as if these first-year college women will be taking other honors. en s The Men ' s Intramural sports are designed to ive every fellow, who wants to, a chance to play in the sport of his choice. That has been especially true this year, because with the shortage of man- power so acute, the teams have done well to find enough interested men to fill all the positions J ' it J9fthii ij ports The sports played this year were touch football, volleyball, basketball, and tennis. Most of the other sports were automatically eliminated by lack of enough players to form the teams. Credit should be given all the teams who participated, for each team and each individual played hard, and helped make this year ' s sports a success. The events of the year were won by the Kappa Theta ' s, with the Alpha Sigs and Chi Rhos as close runner-ups. 97, .

The challenge of the world ' s need brings us under renewed obligation to see to it that our Christianity does not become pallid and nerveless. It remains true today that the world, drenched with hatred and fear, still turns to Christ as the only source of a message of comfort and hope. We who call ourselves Methodists are under the desperate neces- sity of creating a new belief in and enthusiasm for the Christianiza- tion of the world No other plan holds any real hope for our distracted world. In the midst of all the divisive, disintergrating forces which threaten our common life, the church must live and move in the hearts and lives of men. We must rededicate ourselves to the task of world redemption — a task which is gracious in the opportunity it presents and terrible in the responsibility it imposes. Against all the hatred and injustice which afflict mankind the church must audibly and incessantly proclaim its conviction that the teachings of Christ furnish the way out of our present distress Christians are not romantic crusaders fighting against hopeless odds Rather are they the heralds of life here and hereafter to all who believe To proclaim and defend His way of life constitute a duty of which the Christian must not com- plain and a service in which we must not become weary. It becomes the duty, therefore, of all who confess Him as Lord to acknowledge His authority, to understand and obey His commands, so that His church may be redemptively in contact with human need. The CENTENNIAL MOVEMENT is Florida ' s response to the world ' s needs and Christ ' s command. METHODISM MARCHES ON ' — Bishop Arthur J Moore. I Iw ' lorUla Centcnnitil I " Congressional consideration in 1843 of the possibility of admit- ■ng Wisconsin and Iowa as well as Florida to the Union rekindled the Florida Methodist ' s hopes of having Florida constituted as a separate conference of the Methodist Church . . . The argument was advanced that if Florida had progressed sufficiently to be organized as a state then she had advanced sufficiently to deserve a conference of her own . . . " The Florida Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church (the conference met only once before the Methodist Episcopal Church, South was organized) convened for the first time on Thursday, Feb- ruary 6, 1845, in the Methodist Church in Tallahassee , . . Tallahassee had but recently suffered a quite destructive fire and had not yet recovered therefrom. Physical deprivations did not cool her spirit though, for the capital city was alive with interest in behalf of the admission of Florida to the Union. The Legislative Council had just passed a resolution urging rhe admission of Florida to balance the admission of Iowa. Spirited campaigns for nomination to the antici- pated offices were under way and on the day following the adjourn- ment of the conference the House of Representatives passed the bill for the admission of Florida and Iowa, Three weeks later, on the last day of the administration of John Tyler, March 3, 1845, the law by which Florida became a state was signed.

BOOK XI The Interlachen would not be complete without this book, of those who have excelled in beauty, scholarship, and service — leaders who have been outstanding among the students of Florida Southern College. The Honor walk is the highest honor that is awarded to a student at Florida Southern College. It is given to that person who has excelled in character, scholarship, leadership, and service. Miss Southern is chosen by popular vote of the students as the most outstanding girl graduate of the college. Southern beauties help add to the natural beauty of Florida Southern College. The Valedictorian and Salutatorian are named on the basis of scholastic averages over the period of four years. The student having the highest average is Valedictorian while the student having the second best average is Salutatorian. Who ' s Who selections are made by a committee composed of both faculty and student members. This selection is based on a student ' s outstanding achievement in scholarship, leadership, and service.
