Entering Huggins-Curtis Hall we met Margaret Wacaste, and " Bobhy " who were leading the South in a great Baptist Training Union movement. When we entered the dining room, a familiar figure came from the kitchen to tap the bell. Miriam Lipscomb was now Gardner-Webb ' s efficient dietitian. At the head of my table sat Martha Ellen Calton. who was now professor of Home Economics at Meredith College. Teanne Rollins came in shortly after the bell had rung. She had gained the position of Professor rf Enghsh atBaylo, University. I later learned she was giving up her position in the coming spring to become the wife of one of Dallas ' prominent doctors. Margaret Roberta, who was the owner of the horse that won the last Kentucky Derby, accompanied Jeanne. I spotted Mary Sue Keeter over at the table in the back. I was told that she was now Professor of Dramatics at Limestone College. Prue Parker, seemingly very happy, passed by on the arm of her World War II Veteran.

Approximately sixty hale and hearty teen-age youngsters entered Gardner-Webb Junior College on September the ninth, in the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and forty-three. At this port we dropped anchor for two years. We greatly outnumbered our superior upper classmen, but that did not prevent a deep feeling of inferiority among us. Slowly but surely the fog began to lift, and we were drawn into the college circle by our already selected " big sisters " and brothers. Too. the Baptist Student Union Council came to our rescue. They assisted in getting us settled, acquainted and provided for our entertainment. Mrs. James P. Morgan, our Dean of Women, soon won our hearts, and in her we found one who would always listen and understand. I will always remember her as the one who made the rounds at ten-thirty to say the " goodnights. " No doubt ihis simple feat led to sweeter dreams during our first year in college. Just when we thought we were approaching the realms of the intellectual, we awoke one morning to the shrill shouts and merry peals of laughter of our honorable upper classmen. Armed with long scrolls of suspicious looking print, they were invading our rooms and tugging at our sheets. Yes. truly this was the day of our doom- — Rat Day ! ! ! We pulled through after two days of extensive workouts, supervised by the sophomores. We were then fully established in our abode. Our first gala occasion for the year was that of the reception for President and Mrs. Philip Lovin Elliott. For this occasion we all stepped forth in our prettiest formals. and wore our most becoming smiles. Eagerly we sought to give them a royal welcome into our midst. In the month of October, the season when ghosts are prone to wander, the Athenean-Rhamsaeur Literary Society entertained with a Hallowe ' en party. Although chills played up and down our spines, we had a thrilling time. An event we always looked forward to was that of the monthly birthday dinner. Here we enjoyed a bit of formal gaiety after a day of toilsome study. The smell of cedar and tinkling of bells were in the air. Yes. the most joyous season of the year was drawing near. Strains of the familiar " Hallelujah Chorus " drifted from the choir rehearsals. We were all dreaming of a " White Christmas. " A few days before the holidays the College Choir presented excerpts from " The Messiah " in the E. B. Hamrick Auditorium. Never could we forget our Christmas dinner, when we ate by candlelight, and played " Jingle Bells " on our water glasses. AH right — maybe it was childish, but it was still fun ! After the holidays we returned with a mixture of feelings within us. We had had a wonderful time. But there was something missing because our minds often turned to our loved ones who were away fighting for us. We were glad to get back, and to admire and share in the excitement over beautiful gifts. But — . there was one something that bothered us. Naturally, any college student would realize what came shortly after Christmas — mid-term exams I No doubt about it. we were approaching the season for the burning of the midnight oil. We tasted French at breakfast; conversed English at lunch; smelled chemistry at the " Shop " amid a stack of equations; ate home eonomics at dinner; and handed out history dates at bedtime. When grades at last came out. I imagine we were a bunch of drab looking kids— with torn hair. strained eyes and wrinkled brows. During a short period of rejoicing, we threw our cares to the wind and enjoyed life to the fulle st degree. February brought parties to the mind. This time the Kalagathian-Kalliergeonian Society was on the entertaining end. At their expense we enjoyed a full evening of " hearty " entertainment at the club house. In the early spring the Dramatics Club and the College Choir presented " Stephen Poster. " This was the major dramatic production of the year, and it revealed that Gardner-Webh was a possessor of much unusual dramatic and musical talent. Later in the spring we honored the seniors of our college with a Hawaiian Banquet at the Charles Hotel in Shelby. Hours were Spent in preparing for this occasion, and I imagine that for days pre- ceding this festive event, palm trees and teis danced through the dreams of those who were our interior decorators. Yes, it was some of our own number who created for us a real Hawaii at leasl tome of the faculty thought so. Somehow. I doubt the seniors having had a better time than we did. Then came the red-letter day of our college history — the inauguration of our President. College officials from this and other states were present at this event. The main address was delivered by Dr. Frank Porter Graham, President of the University of North Carolina. Among the other notables who appeared on the program were I President Leslie Campbell, of Campbell College ; Reverend Perry Crouch, Vice-President of the Baptist State Convention ; Major Isaac Newton Carr. United States Army and former Dean " f Harfl Hill College ; President Hiram Hunter, of Western Carolina Teachers College : and President Boyt Blackwell of Mars Hill College. Professor Paul Stacy presented numerous delegates from other colleges who did nol appeal 00 the program. Reverend William W. Davidson spoke in behalf of the faculty of the college and Robert W. Crappa represented the students. Honorable 1 I Ha Gardner presided over the entire program, and Judge Edwin Yates Webb, chairman of tin- Board of Trustees, • investiture to which President Kllion iponded. The afternoon program featured a historical pageant written by Miss Frances Cuthbertsi.n. our English professor. This colorful pageant depicted the history of the college from the time it was founded in ] 908 to the present dsj I fitting climax was reached when Miss Marietta Hamrick. of Boil ink ' Springs, win Crowned " HISS Gardner-Webb. " Those attending her were: Miss Helen Lancaster, U Maid of Honor, Misses Jeanne It Ian ton, Ruth Moseley, Sarah Bank head, Ozell Martin, Louise Edwards, and Margaret Wacaster. Reverend R.

Their education had been interrupte I in order that ouis nygM to co p We paused there at commencement to offer a prayer that fighting would cease would reign supreme over all the earth. Laden with baggage, plus diploma, we paused for one last word with classmates and for one last glimpse of our Alma Mater. Then, with perhaps a few tears, we puled up anchor and sailed forth into a new world— resolving " to strive, to seek, to find, but not to yield. MARGARET WACASTER. Class Historian.

May the sixth, as the clock struck four, the history of Gardner-Webb from its founding in 1 903 until the present day was unfurled in a colorful historical pageant entitled Onward Gardner-Webb. " The beau- tiful magnolia and cypress trees on front campus formed a lovely setting for the occasion. Both the speech choir and the singing choir presented bits of history which were enacted by various students. Serving as a climax of the pageant. Miss Marietta Hamrick of Boiling Springs was crowned Miss Gardner-Webb. " Never shall we forget how beautiful Marietta and the ladies of the court were as they marched from the church through the archway and down through the spacious oak grove which graces our campus. Little Miss Sonya Hedrick. granddaughter of the late Pro- fessor J. D. Huggins. founder of the college, was crown bearer. After Miss Helen Lancaster, president of the Student Government Association, had crowned Miss Gardner-Webb the national anthem was sung. As a closing gesture buglers played taps. All of us will agree that this was the End of A Perfect Day. " President Elliott had been inaugurated: Miss Gardner Webb " had been crowned. As the shadows lengthened the thought uppermost in our minds was that Gardner- Webb would ever move " Onward. Upward. Outward " in the field of Christian education.
