" When we mean to build. We first survey the plot, then draw the model; And when we see the figure of the house, Then must we rate the cost of the erection. " For most of us, Gardner- Webb College has played an important role in the plans which we have drawn for our lives. It has offered us opportunities unhmited to build a firm foundation, and it is our res- ponsibility as the builder and molder of our lives to take advantage of every opportunity to widen our horizons. In short, we must make of ourselves better people. Even as Gardner-Webb continues to grow and exert its influence on an increasing number of young men and women, we of the student body, administration, and faculty must continue to grow, keeping alive the true spirit of Gardner- Webb. We must be BUILDING UPWARD! Containing, . . . TEACHING Administration 9 LEARNING Classes 13 DOING Activities 47 PLAYING Athletics 61 EXCELLING Features 73 PATRONIZING Advertising 80 ¥ m . .

He has engraved an indelible impression on every student who has come to know and love him. To him, who has been so instrumental in the growth of Gardner-Webb College, and who, in his own life, has followed the plan of the Master Builder, we dedicate the 1955 ANCHOR. de d ic a t Ion PBEsroENT Philip Lomn Elliott ' He gives them truth to build on. ■ — ii»i»p r p w r s ' James Young Hamhick Dean of Men, English B.A., Elon College; M.A., George Peabody College for Teachers; Gardner-Webb College, 1945-.

Published by the students, The Anchor strives to give an overall picture of life on the campus —a picture that will be looked back on in years to come. Publication of The Anchor is the result of a lot of hard work, lost tempers, and a good deal of diplomacy; but thanks to patience on the part of the faculty and the co-operation of the students. The 1955 Anchor has become a reality. We believe it was worth the effort.

Pollock Faculty Advisor The Delta Psi Omega is an honorary dramatics fraternity, composed of students who have been active participants in the production of plays, either on stage or behind the scenes. Qualifications for membership in Delta Psi Omega are very high, and thus quite an honor to attain membership in the fraternity. Its main purpose is to stimulate interest in dramatics and to produce and promote plays for the enjoyment of the college as a whole and for the development of the student. Phyllis Smith Charles Stames Conrad Morris Betty Staton Mr. J. Y. Hamrick DELTA PSI OMEGA a ROMEO AND JULIET Without a doubt, the Delta Psi Omega met its greatest challenge in the field of dramatics with the presentation of " Romeo and Juliet " Decem- ber 8-10 in the E. B. Hamrick Auditorium. Elaborate costuming, constant scenery changes, and complicated settings afforded many ob- stacles to the dramatics group, but every one was overcome and the results was a play that could be ranked high by any critic. Further ac- claim was given " Romeo and Juliet " when two performances were given at Queen ' s College in Charlotte.
