" Page Three " mwrn COLLEGE HISTORY Gardner- Webb College has a varied and interesting history. As early as 190 the idea of establishing a school of high grade, " where the youth could have the best possible educational advantages under distinctive Christian influences. " was firmly fixed in the minds of the people of the Kings Mountain AssociStion. By 1905 Boiling Springs was selected as the location of such a school, and the Sandy Run Association had joined enthusiastically with the Kings Mountain Association in the determination to build it. The school was chartered on December 2. 1905. as The Boiling Springs High School. Incorporated. Page Four In 1907. construction work on the main building (the girls ' dormitory now) started, and the corner stones, one for the Kings Mountain Association and one for the Sandy Run. were laid in June. In May of the same year Mr. J. D. Huggins was elected as the school ' s first principal. In January. 1908. the school moved into the unfinished building. Ifhus the Boiling Springs High School continued under the able lead ership of J. D. Huggins until 1928. In 1928. after the campaign for funds by the Kings Mountain and Sandy Run Associations and the Baptist State Convention had been completed, the school was opened as a junior college with J. Blaine Davis as its first president and J. D. Huggins as the dean. ■Very little change was made in the plant until 19 39 when the buildings and grounds were partially renovated and beautified. The gymnasium was veneered with native stone, and by 1 940, the E. B. Hamrick building, which had been burned, was under reconstruction. This building had been erected after the first World ' War as a memorial to the boys from this section of the state, boys who had given their lives in the cause of freedom. In 1942. Horace Easom and Mai Spangler led the people in an effort to raise $150,000.00, which effort resulted in the extension of the campus from five to thirty-five acres, the rcfinishing and refurnishing of the Memorial build- ing, the erection of the new library building, and the complete renovation and refurnishing of the dormitories. In June. 1942, the trustees changed the name of the institution to Gardner- Webb Junior College in honor of two prominent Carolina families. On October 1. 1943. the trustees launched a campaign to raise a maximum of $500,000.00 as a memorial building fund. J. E. Sirrine and Company, of Greenville. S. C made the survey and drew the plans for thirteen new buildings. Since October 1 . more than $1,300 per day has come into this fund. Building will start as soon as convenient after the close of the war. You will do well to watch the next ten years of Gardner-Webb. Page Five - 1 " . 1 Ya - 1 rn T r f i-joK ' - A TRIBUTE TO THOSE IN SERVICE Our country that loves peace icas again forced to come face to face with the horrors of icar when the enemy struck at Pearl Harbor. American families who were once filled with joy, laughter, love and hope have come to know death, sorrow and frustrations. The first call for men left a vacancy in many homes — homes from the poorest to the wealthiest. Then all America missed the boys from the streets, the churches, the farms, the factories and finally from the class rooms. But ' tis the bravery of these boys under fire which , gives all America the courage to believe in the rights of men and the faith to look ahead with optimism and with confidence in a just and undying cause. Page Six PRESIDENTS MESSAGE " Bliss was It in that daiun to be altve. But to be young ivas t ' ery Heaven. " This is war — total war. Our boys are now on the firing lines, on land, in the air. on sea. and under the sea. Some are in concentration camps: sooie are lost in the jungles: others lost on the wide oceans. Life and love and laughter were and are as sweet to them as to us. But instead of their baptism of fire and blood we have the peace of a college campus. The peace which they will win must have trained minds and spirits to keep and protect and pass it on to others. The dawn we face is a sacred one; it is tinted with warm blood.

Page Sixteen CLASS PROPHECY It is May 29. 1967. exactly twenty-three years since the class of ' 43- ' 44 has been graduated from Gardner-Webb College, then a school of a rather small faculty, four buildings and a comparatively small student body. I am visiting in the office of President Phil Elliott, who has recently been offered a doctors degree from his Alma Mater. We are discussing the Gardner- Webb of yesterday as compared with the Gardner-Webb of today with it.- monstrous buildings, adequate equipment, beautified campus, a student body of 687. and learned teachers among whom we see former classmates, Misses Merle Butler and Marietta Hamrick, as physical education and science professors. Miss Hamrick has attracted nation-wide attention by her work with the atom. Inspired by the revolution of Gardner-Webb in the past two and one-half decades. I decided to visit our sophomore class president. Rev. L. M. Kanipe. President Elliott informs me that I will find him in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and I go to Charlrotte. North Carolina, to board a plane for said location. On boarding the plane, I discover to my surprise that I am to travel with two ole courtin ' mates, Brig. Gen. and Mrs, Robert S. Jones. Mrs. Jones is having quite a time with little Brenda Anne, who is only ten. Brig. Gen. Jones is on his way to Washington for an important military conference with President Roosevelt (yes. he ' s still president ) . After a long talk with the Joneses. I turn my attention to the evening paper which I bought at the last stop. Opening it to the sports page I find that Miss Sarah Bankhead. who has been chosen as football coach to the Green Boys, has reached her ambition — an eleven man football team. They say its miraculous the way she holds ( ?) her men. And there on the society page is the former Miss Ruth Moseley ' s column " Advice to the Lovelorn. ' Not until we reach Philadelphia do I discover that Pearl Grigg is the hostess on the plane. The pilot says they never lack for hot air. The first sight I see in Philadelphia is Clyde McAlister sitting in his commercial law office with Louise Garrett as the waiting client. After an hour ' s search with the aid of Rosa Mae Philbeck. who is a prominent Philadelphia taxi driver. I find Kanipe. Before long I learn that he is pastor of Sixty-Second Baptist Church and Dr. Guy Johnson is his assistant pastor. Verdic Chapman is the educational director and Jayne Elliott, the fiddler. At this very time they are having a scries of talks by Miss Mae Chapman, returned missionary from China. In Philadelphia has been established the Ponce de Leon Research Laboratory by Miss Helen Lancaster with the aid of Blanche Whitaker and Carolyn Hill. They are conducting a search for life-giving water from the Fountain of Youth. It seems that they are having a colossal success since ' Cuddles. ' the campus cat. and their guinea pig is still alive as a result of their experiments. The research is being financed by Lucielle Causby. prominent lady lawyer of Phila- delphia, and Mabel Spangler. who as a result of her marriage, is heir to the noted Wall Estates in Wyoming. After a short stay with Dr. Kanipe, the course of events leads me to New York City. To my surprise New York has its first woman mayor. Miss Mavin Boyles. formerly of Toluca. North Carolina, a thriving metropolis of the South. As personal secretary to Mavin, Bertie Lee Spurling serves capably. On Broadway I find Misses Joyce Tate and Sadie Clark. Miss Tate is acting and Miss Clark producing. We remember that both got their start at Gardner-Webb through the production of " Stephen Foster. " From Miss Clark I learn much about two former classmates. Misses Margaret Washburn and Frances Gillespie. Miss Washburn is being called " America ' s Young Kate Smith " and Miss Gillespie is " just being called " From New York wc continue our journey to Des Moines, South Dakota, where we find Mirian Hamrick and Mary Olga Watson. They are co-owners of one of the largest and best developed farms in the state. In Seattle. Washington. I run across " Kat " McKinney who is librarian in the Cities Mem- orial Library. Also in Seattle is Gwen BiggerstafF who instructs Spanish scholars in the high school there. In San Francisco I bid farewell to Thelma Cash. Virginia Seism, and Marjorie Hammett. who are sailing to Hawaii on a vacation cruise. Adventuring to Hollywood, I find Margaret Whitaker and Lucy Fortune, who are now make-up artists for Paramount Studios. For the sake of prestige. I visit Reno. There, as always was expected, we find Gerry Walker and Mabel Padgett. Gerry is seeking her third divorce, but this is Mabels only visit. To our utter dismay we find Meredith McGinnis standing outside waiting for a male to come out with his divorce in his hand. Wed better leave! „ , Bobby CRAPPS. Prophet Page Seventeen I CLASS HISTORY As 1 strong group of green freshmen coming from many towns and communities, we began our college life on Gardner-Webb campus in September. 1942. Let us look for a while at Jane Freshman and her ' big sister. " Alice Sophomore, and some of their experiences. Alice Sophomore made it much easier for Jane Freshman to get accustomed to college life and introduced her to numbers of new people. " Thanks. Alice, you kept me from getting homesick. " But little did Jane realize she was still green until Alice dragged her from peaceful sleep about six o ' clock one morning shouting. " Rat Day " ! Queer sights were seen that day. and Alice Sophomore, with her friend Bill Co-ed. got some good laughs from the freshmen ' s strange apparel and their horror of rat court. Vc were then full-fledged college lads and lassies. ■We had a lovely fall, and Jane and lots of other freshmen picked cotton in the community as a patriotic duty. It was time for Thanksgiving Holidays before Jane knew it. But feasting just wasn ' t the order of the day now, because here Jane stopped to remember that only a short time ago some little yellow men hurled bombs on Pearl Harbor. With Johnny and Ted away at war, the usual feast and frolic was a bit passe: and there was nothing left for Jane to do but be obedient to the beckoning call of the classroom. Only three more weeks til Christmas, but Alice and Jane again noted that the meaning of " holiday " was changed. The former light- hearted connotation of this word now had a darker tinge which denoted sadness. Things weren ' t like they used to be. The New Year found Jane more light-hearted and ready for a year ' s work. She proved it when exam time came, and she " pulled through " with an unexpected number of quality points. February brought the dedication of the E. B. Hamrick Auditorium as the main event on the calendar. In March. Jane had to say " Good-bye " to Bill Co-ed who was leaving for the army. Many other co-eds dropped out like ants, " cause Uncle Sammy needed them to help carry a gun. Jane poured out heart, soul, mind and body to give Alice Sophomore and the others a swell banquet- The patriotic idea seemed to be very successful, and everyone had a wonderful time. May, the month of Queens! Katherinc was ours, and a lovelier one couldn ' t be found Jane realized that school days were fastly fleeting: however, she couldn t mar the beauty and splendor of Katherine and her court with tear drops, even if she did have to exercise will power. Again Jane was thrilled down to her very toes when she learned of the dedication of the E. B, Hamrick Building, that magnificent, new white structure which dominated the campus. But this was to be a part of the commencement exercises, and that would be the end. Yes, it would be the end, but what a glorious end it would be with three governors on the scene at one time — Former Governor O. Max Gardner, Former Governor Clyde R. Hoey, and Governor Melville Broughton. This was too good to be true, but alas, it was true! The day arrived after months of careful preparation. Jane, serving as hostess on this eventful day, felt now as never before that she was a vital part of Gardner-Webb. Now she must carry on because Alice had donned the long, bl ck, academic robe signifying her almost immediate departure. With the last day of May came graduation and a fond farewell to Alice. September, 1943. My! The campus looked all ready to receive the new additions to our college. Jane just knew she was going to love our new President. Mr. Elliott, and what a treat to have a splendid person like Mrs, James P, Morgan as Dean of Women. Page Eighteen She was Jane Sophomore this year, and a member of the B. S. U. Council; so she had to come to school early for a council retreat. She felt dignified, but not too dignified to help her little sister to learn. The big campaign for the enlargement of our school was under way. Five hundred thousand dollars— Jane just couldn ' t conceive of that much money. But some people could— Mr. Easom and other members of the campaign committee assured us that such a huge amount of money existed, and the campaign progressed nicely. At last Jane had a chance to pay off the damage done to her pride at initiation last year. This day was full of fun and tricks, hut how her little sister ' s eyes bulged when she realized she had another day of it: she had expected only one. But they were good sports, and so were the boys. In October, everything led to a big reception for President and Mrs, Elliott, It was a glorious success, and many distinguished guests attended. The A. R. ' s and the K. L. ' s were just as big rivals as ever: each tried to lure the most new members. That splendid chapel program at the end of the " Rush Week " tallied an almost equal score for the societies. Then the old and new members alike joined in the competition of making their society THE society of the school. The annual holidays promised about the same joy and sorrow as last year. But on Thanks- giving Day Jane got a letter from Bill Co-ed saying he expected his furlough about the middle of December. Then, with the thrilling expectation of what Christmas Holidays and the fur- lough would bring. Jane went about singing. " This is so nice to come home to. " And she wasn ' t disappointed in the least. After sufficient cramming and the relief of learning that she had passed those colossal exami- nations. Jane realized there was only one more semester of school. But how glorious that .semester would be! Yes. it would be filled with thrilling experiences that Jane would never forget as long as she lived. Spring; There was warmth in that word, and along with the usual blooming flowers and green grass which beautify our campus came many important events. Among these was a mag- nificent production of " Stephen Foster " under the direction of Miss Cuthbertson and Miss Jcssup. Young in the field of dramatics, Gardner- ' Webb was proud of the splendid work of the young " Classic Entertainers. " The Junior-Senior Banquet was the eventful beginning of the end of the most glorious year of Jane ' s life. " Thanks, frcshies. it was a wonderful affair. " But Jane could hardly grasp the thought of graduation and departure, although she knew it had to come. May brought a May Queen? No. a new idea was included in the inauguration ceremonies. The beginning of these festivities was a banquet featuring the Honorable O, Max Gardner as guest speaker. The formal Investiture which was accepted by President Elli ott was followed by an address by Dr. Frank Graham. President of the University of North Carolina. Greetings were extended from colleges and universities throughout the South. As a culmination of the inauguration ceremonies, a pageant depicting the history of the college was presented and " Miss Gardner-Webb " was crowned. Graduation was on its way. and how proud Jane was to don the robe that signified that she had accomplished her work on this campus. It was a sad. yet joyous occasion— to be among the first class to have completed two years in this institution under the powerful new name of Gardner-Webb College. The Baccalaureate sermon was delivered by Dr. R. C, Campbell, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Columbia. South Carolina, followed by the graduation exercises on Monday morning, Jane then said a farewell to her dear Alma Mater and journeyed along life ' s highway.
