In it we have attempted to trace the growth of our college through the years, through the buildings, through the faculty, and above all, through the students. W ' e have tried to give you a picture of the true Gardner-Webb — " serving all who want her service, blessing all with outstretched hands. " This ' 50 Anchor is our hope, our joy, our pride. Enthrone it in vour hearts, for it ' s a sacrificial service, for you. To Santford Martin, Jr., Professor of English — for his unlimited kindness, his human understanding, his warm sympathy, his youthful exuberance, and his unerring DEDICATION sense of fair play — this Annual is affectionately dedicated. The Boiling Springs Baptist Church gives each student a sense of security and provides social and spiritual fellowship which he would otherwise miss while he is away from home. The religious organizations of the college are a part of its whole program. 1905 THE COLLEGE Boiling Springs was selected by the Sandy Run Association and the Kings Mountain Association as the location of a school of high school grade. The school was chartered on December 2, 1905, as The Boiling Springs High School, Incorporated.

Hamrick, Bob Patterson, Mrs. Wray 11 Phillip Lovin Elliott Prcsidci f Dear Fellow Students: This is the time ot parting, but this little book. The Anchoh, will be a magic key with which you may unlock the doors of yesterday and go back to li ' e again many of the experiences of today. At our parting I should like to place in your hand a little token— a kind of allegory of all that is essential in all the prog- ress of our going. It is contained in a little device used again and again by the poets- a little physical picture with a spiritual counterpart. Perhaps you would call it a pictiu ' c with overtones. It may be that the sum of all pain or happiness is only what ONE is cap- able of experiencing. It could be that the minutest particle of matter is a minia- ture solar system. It could likewise be that when we find the central basic trutli of life we have potentially all there is to have. Her the token: A noiseless patient spider, I mark ' d where on a little promontory it stood isolated, Mark ' d how to explore ihe acant vast surrounding. It launch " d fortli filament, filament, filament, out of itself. Ever unreeling them, ever tirelessly speeding them. And ou, O m ' soul, where you stand. Surrounded, detached, in measureless oceans of space. Ceaselessly musing, enturing, throwing, seeking the spheres to connect them. Till the bridge you will need be form ' d till the ductile anchor hold. Till the gossamer thread yon fling catch somewhere, O my soul 12 m. .-LA ' .v ■ ■- ' iBX- --;-v:t James Orville Terrell Dean of lustruction Social Science Willie Kate Baldwin Dean of Women DEANS James Young Hamrick Dean of Men English F A C IJ I T Y Charles Wayne Bradburn Physical Education Mrs. Carlyle Cornwell Home Economics 13 Robert Allen Dyer Psychology and Religion Benjamin Coleman Fisher English Hubert Conrad Dixon Mathematics Emmalyn Gamble Voice Margaret Falls Organ Marietta FiAMRicK Natural Science FACULTY 14 Abbie Catherine Miller Piano Elma Harper Pollock Romance Languages Santford Martin, Jr. English James Stephen Morrisett Religion Frank Richardson Bursar Saranan Morgan Physical Education F A C I I T V 15 Thomas Lixxev Reece Religion Eugene ' osecky Commerce Paul James Stacy Natural Science LiLLA Ermine Watkins Commerce William F.

Blaine Davis as its first President and J. D. Huggins as the Dean. Twenty years later the college became a member of the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. 55 COLLEGE GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION Edith llu lu, Jurncs StaiiK , Margie l ' a XaniiL- , Shirley Huskey, Nancy Ruth Fort. Frazier Cherkas, Ola Maye Cannon, Tom Key, Horace Lee Cline, Leonard Cline, Willie Kate Baldwin, Studei t Gmernmcnt Faculty Adviser. The College Government Association is composed of the entire Student Body with its executive power vested in the Student CounciL Three main divisions comprise this association: the Legislative Body, the Judicial Board, and the House Councils. These divisions have executive, judicial, and legislative authority over the conduct of all students. Student Government endeavors to encourage coop- eration, loyalty to the college, and a spirit of love and friendship among students. It also sets for each student the desire to maintain a high standard of honor in all phases of college life.

The B.S.U. has one main goal; God predominant in the life of each student at Gardner- Webb. Groups meet in Sunday School, Training Union, Vespers, Morning Watch, and Noonday Prayer Meetings to strengthen com- mitments to this purpose.

Most of the productions go through WOHS (Shelby) and WBBO (Forest City). Weekly delivery of the popular college radio ;eries calls for close organizational coordination between the student production staff and engi- neering crew. The program staff and engineer- ing crew are under the direction of Jonas Bridges, ably assisted by James McDaniels. On Sunday afternoon, " Twilight Embers " may be heard over the broadcasting facilities of WBBO from the college campus. Jonas Bridges Student Frosram Director Professor Hamrick makes last minute check on script before the play-makers go on the air. This outfit, known as " The Varieties " has the shortest half-hour in radio. Their style ranges from the slow, sentimental numbers to Basin St. Jazz. 58 ON THE AIR The Gardiier-Webb College Playniakers pre- sent a special radio adaptation of Charles Dick- ens ' Christmas Carol, introducing Pavil Williams of Rutherfordton as Scrooge and featuring the choir in the background with Christmas carols familiar to both the Dickens generation and our day. The Playmakers are sponsored by Pro- fessor J. Y. Hamrick, college dramatics head. On a crisp autumn afternoon, the college choir, led by Director Stephen Morrisett, sang for a half hour from the transmitter terrace of Southeastern America ' s pioneer FM radio sta- tion, WMIT, perched some 6600 feet abo e the eastern coastline. The broadcast from Mt. Mit- chell was dedicated to the memory of Ambassa- dor Gardner. " It ' s a touchdown! " , with Ken Bost at the re- mote, Dan Washburn and Frank Honeycutt as spotters for " Stern " Bridges who opens the ' 49 season. 59 It is with profound amazement that we, the staff, are at last able to see our dreams become a reaUty. Although ours was no life of ease, we like to think of your hands turn- ing the pages, your eyes finding familiar sights, and your hearts being warmed with our yearbook. May these pages keep fore er before you the " happy college da ' S that mean so much to each of us. " To Mr. Troutman, we wish to express our deepest appreciation for his willingness and untiring efforts in ser ing as the sponsor of our Anclior. To those who labored unselfishly and efficiently in selling ads and preparing the material, we sincerely thank each of vou. THE ANCHOR BEnT Joyce Jones Editor-in-Chief William F.
