From a number of letters that have come to us we have chosen the follow- ing extracts which are a fair and unexaggerated representation of the sentiment which prevails among those who have been fortunate enough to have been under the tuition of these venerable leaders of educational and religious reform. " Virtue alone outbuilds the pyramids. " Brother and Sister Hopwood have erected for themselves a monument more enduring than brass. They have called before them young men and women and stamped upon them noble ideals and sent them forth as world builders. Few have made a greater contribution to the world — a col- lege, a name, an influ nce, and greatest of all — a life. LOUIS D. RIDDHLL, Minister. It was in the fall of 1885 that I first met Prof, and Mrs. Hopwood, and during the intervening thirty-three years they have played a conspicuous part in my life. Prof. Hopwood baptized me and ordained me to the ministry. But this is not all. His robust faith, firmness of purpose, and persistent efforts to advance righteousness have been to me a constant source of inspiration. His has been a man ' s task, and he has faitlifully performed it. Only eternity will reveal the great work he has ac- complished. And as to Mrs. Hopwood — all who have sat in her classes and listened to her pure English, been impressed by her reserve and symmetry of character, and have had photographed on their minds her optimistic countenance will ever bow, in their hearts, to her as to a queen. The bells of heaven rang loud and long when, just after the Civil War, the young man and his wife — having consecrated their lives to a great cause — located on the banks of the Buffalo and dedicated that beautiful hill to the Lord. Joy in heaven then? Of course there was! Celestial eyes looked down through the ages and be- held the ever cumulative work then inaugurated. Already, Prof, and Mrs. Hopwood are living in hundreds of places ; they are act- ive in pulpit and pew, in school-room, in literature, in business, in the professions, on the farm — everywhere a man or woman they have made is helping elevate the world. God bless them ' and their spiritual children. GEO. P. RUTLEDGE, Cincinnati, Ohio. Editor Christian Standard. April 19, 1917. March 23, 1917. Mr. and Mrs. Josephus Hopwood lead when it comes to sacrifice and service, without hope of reward or fear of punishment.

Around the foot of this " Classic Hill " twines the course of the purling " Buffalo Creek, " whose gurgling waters gleam in the spring sun and coquettishly dance defiance to youth and age as they hasten for two short miles through shade and shadow to the historic Watauga. And over it all stands the stately " Buffalo Mountain " like a sentinel of the frontier doing duty for his King. These and many other rich and inspiring phe- nomena of nature are but fitting symbols of life on " The Hill " — Young and vigorous care-free and happy youth — guided, guarded, and led by patriotic and Godly men, pointing ever to the best idealism and the noblest and truest human achievements. For an even Half Century what is now MILLIGAN COLLEGE has been battling and growing. Every tree upon the campus is eloquent with a story of love and ro- mance to those who can read ; every spot for miles around is rich in historic lore ; as you walk in any direction the voices of tradition are eloquent reciting for you deeds of chivalry and valor associated with the early history of Tennessee; your guide points " Boone ' s Trail, " and locates for you the famous " Boone ' s Tree; " you are carried to " Watauga River, " shown the " Sycamore Shoals, " and made to stand in the shadow of the monument to the " men who fought the battle of King ' s Moun- tain. " You are told of the Carters, the Haynes, the Taylors, of John Sevier, as well as of " Bonnie Kate Sherrill ; " you are carried into the very heart of the beautiful " Happy Valley, " rendered immortal by the lamented Senator Robert L. Taylor; you at once build " Castles in the Air, " see " Visions and Dreams, " hear the " Fiddle and the Bow, " and emerge through the " Paradise of Fools. " There has been a renais- sance in your life. The Taylors have had a most intimate and vital connection with MILLIGAN COLLEGE from its incipiency, and Col. A. A. Taylor maintains a " Col- lege Home " under the shadow of MILLIGAN that he may educate his children in his own " Alma Mater. " It is doubtful if there is a College in the land a greater percentage of whose stu- dents have been a real contribution to society in the service of God and country. MILLIGAN COLLEGE has been a pioneer in moral reforms and has stood unflinch- ingly for the highest Christian Idealism. The destinies of the College have been directed by a succession of consecrated Christian men and women, the influence of whose labors and sacrifices can scarcely be measured. MILLIGAN COLLEGE is this hour entering upon a larger and richer program. With a new and vigorous administration, with an inspiring optimism now evident among " MILLIGAN MEN " everywhere ; with a reconsecration to the cause of deeper and more vital types of Educational " Preparedness, " looking to the development of leaders for the world ' s thought and action. " The Buffalo " can but bespeak for the coming years a Greater MILLIGAN COL- LEGE. m w ir Ho© ru MISS ANNIE LEE LUCAS AS A SLIGHT TOKEN OF OUR APPRECIATION OF HER KINDLY INTEREST IN THE ENTIRE SCHOOL, AND OF HER INVALUABLE AID IN ITS ENTERPRISES, WE, THE STUDENT BODY, AFFECTION- ATELY DEDICATE THIS PAGE 1917 WWWWMMM . nf Jlgnnranir? to tly SlanJi of Wsltom AMBITION spake unto the Seniors who were dwelling in the land of Ignorance, saying: " I will bring you ou t from under the burdens of ignorance and I will rid you of its bondage. Follow me and I will lead you unto the land of Wisdom, a land flowing with Greek and Latin. " And it came to pass the self-same day they started on the Journej ' across the Wilderness which separated these lands one from the other. And they were four years in the wilderness. And they took their Journey from home and ail the congregation of Seniors came unto Milligan College in Tennessee. Joy was in the hearts of all when Mt. Buffalo appeared. But it came to pass that there were many giants in the land. These giants were Ancient Language, IMath, Science, Modern Language and many others. Harry, the son of Garrett, a mighty man of valour, was chosen head to lead against the enemy — German, one of the most mighty giants in all the land, was slain by Nell, daughter of Campbell. Math was put to death bjf Martha, daughter of Spencer, and Keith, daughter of Forde. Some began to murmur and to say : " Why. I beseech i ' ou, must we meet such mighty foes, and what is this land to which we are going? Let us send spies before us into the land to see if it be good. Pierce, son of Blackwell; Annie, Daughter of Lucas ; and Margaret, daughter of Godbey, went before them into the land of Wis- dom. And behold! when they returned, they brought with them such bunches of knowledge that all cried with a loud voice ; " Let us hasten, I pray, into this land. " But as they journeyed, one Senior said : " Let me return, I beseech you, to the land of Texas and extract the lactiferous fluid from my bovine. " There was heard great lamentation in the camp. Now, Josephus, their leader and guide, went up into Mt. Buffalo to receive inspir- ation. The eve of that same day when he came back into their midst, Lo, the women of the congregation had turned aside from the path of righteousness, and were out on the campus worshipping calves. And it came to pass, that on the morrovi ' , Jose- phus called all the congregation together in one place, and said unto them : " Lo, ye shall not steal postage stamps, neither shall ye swipe electric light globes. " In all WWM:M ' i°} the congregation of Seniors there shall no cigarettes be found, neither shall ye chew the great ugly weed, called Tobacco. Hear my words and hearken unto my voice or I shall not permit you to enter this land of wisdom. Now, as they journeyed, behold, they had oatmeal and cornflakes for breakfast, and rice and beans for supper. Some murmured, sayin g: " Why hast thou brought us into the land of Wilderness to perish of hunger? Our souls long for fried chicken and pies like Mother makes. " Because of these murmurings, many were pierced with the poisonous darts from Cupid ' s bow. Matrimony was lifted up in their midst by Thomas, son of AUgood, and as many as beheld thereon, were healed. But in these days, some were stubborn and would not be healed. Some went all the way, even unto the end of the way, with these poisonous arrows in tlieir hearts. Among the stifif-necked and unruly was Russell, surnamed Clark ; Lamar, nicknamed Sloppy, and Howard, the Molly. And also a fair damsel whose name was Laura Mary. In the midst of the Wilderness, lo, there appeared a great sea, the name of which was Zip; and when they beheld, they all cried: " How shall we get by this? " Harry, the brave commander, said: " Let us consume it. " Now there was one Carsie, who was ever first to obey his command. This same Carsie took a timbrel in her hand, and sang: " Let us consume it. " All the camp followed after her singing with a joy- ful voice : " Let us consume it. " And it came to pass that they armed themselves with bread and butterine, and immediately the sea before them disappeared, and they walked across on dry land. In those days there arose a great prophetess in the land, whose name was Sarah. And it came to pass that Sarah called unto her all the congregation of Seniors, and spake unto them saying: " Behold ye cannot have any special privileges, or your en- trance to that land toward which you are now journeying will be delayed. Neither shall Frank of Alamo take my girlies to walk in the moonlight. Behold, one among you, whose nickname is " Pete, " who wasteth no time in courting. Lo, how the giants in the land flee before his mighty strength. And it came to pass in the last days of the journey, that the land toward which they were going, came into view. Immediately, the musicians of the congregation who were these : Addie, Keith, Whillametta and Harry, began to make joyful sounds on the piano and to sing with a loud voice. All followed after making joyful speeches. So it came to pass on the fifth day of the sixth month, of the fourth year of their journeyings, they entered into the land of Wisdom with mighty shouts of victory.

Long before he commenced wriggling around on our planet a Poet-Prophet ad- mirably described him as follows : " A solemn youth with sober phiz, Who eats his grub and minds his biz. " Whether our subject early spied this taking horoscope and proceeded to fill it out we cannot say, but a worse one might have been followed. Be that as it may he has left no stone unpiled by which to climb to the top, for he has the study habit and is a " jiner, " belonging to many organ- izations of the college. It is not clear whether his college honors have been " achieved " or " thrust upon him. " As fa- miliar " Tom Watson " he hails from the red old hills of Georgia, the land of the watermelon and the peach, and he brought one of the fairest of the latter with him. He is the only " benedict " of the class, but others seem to be ripening. When first his face is seen he is taken to be " all " his name says — " good, " and his " peach " still insists he is good enough to eat. r JLo © WHILLAMETTA BAILEY, GRADUATE IN VOICE Milligan, Tenn.

This, her favorite song, would indicate that she is very studious and that she will reach the top in time, but the study habit does not yet so possess her as to prevent her looking after her looks. It is said that a certain genial dry goods merchant here in town, in business on the corner of Bailey and Auto-perii avenues, is greath ' in love with Whilla- metta, but another will likely get her away from him in time, and it will cost thir, lover something besides losing his lass.

William Pierce Blackwell is the em- bodiment of W. P. B. — worth, pluck, and lousiness. He makes a brilliant speech on the spur of the moment on a subject he knows nothing about, and if talking against his convictions he reveals the fact by unusual emphasis and a twinkle of the left e3 ' e (using the right eye for sincerity). It must have been a wink of that left eye that hoodwinked the Faculty into giving him a chance among the few to scatter oratory at Commencement. As a lawyer he would excel in perplex- ing the jury, and as a Christian Science advocate he would hypnotically cure you; but as he is a preacher of true instinct and of much promise, he curbs all centrifugal tendencies. Mr. Blackwell has remarkable versatil- ity. He thinks in Greek, sings in Chinese, smiles in Irish, laughs in Dutch, talks mostly in United States and snores only after midnight. He is twice graduated with first ranks as to the intellect, but is only this year a sub-freshman in the school of the heart. Very rapid progress in the latter is indi- cated, however, since the mating season of the birds of passage has arrived, and Pe- gassus has signally come to his aid in giv- ing vent to the long pent-up emotions. Here is a specimen, one of his very latest; " From Milligan I ' m going forth, It may be south, it may be north ; Whichever way my coy bird flies. And lighting place, this watcher spies. " " First in the council hall to steer the state And ever foremost in a tongue debate. " m w 5 " z i © LAURA MAY BORING, GRADUATE IN EXPRESSION President Sophomore Class, 1915-16; Win- ner O. M.

Down in Happy Valley, on the banks of the Watauga, stands a monument erect- ed in honor of the King ' s Mountain Boys. This beautiful valley widens up past Syc- amore Shoals, then the old Taylor farm, into a fine farming section. It is from the • very heart of this section that Miss Bow- ers comes to us. To be sure any one coming from such a beautiful country could not help but be a fond lover of na- ture, and it is this love of nature that one first notices wlien in company with Miss Bowers. She not only finds " tongues in trees, books in running brooks, and ser- mons in stones, " but she revels in the ar- rangement of all nature, her hair and her home. Her interest always goes to the top, and thus we often find her in com- pany with the " Garrett.

He had a slow handshake, big, brown, dreamy eyes and a broad smile that fades into an expression which makes one desirous of his presence — (especially the young ladies).

Although slie comes to us from Mem- phis, Martha still forgets, sometimes, and tells you she hails from Boston — her early years were spent near the " Hub, " and we doubt not that the far-famed literary at- mosphere of her childhood home has been, in some way, responsible for the splendid record she has made in all of her class work since entering College. If there ' s a single thing " Dear old Martha " can ' t do about tlie College, we ' d like to be told what is — from performing on the type- writer to delivering soul-stirring orations. Martha came to us with her mind made up to go out as a missionary, but we shouldn ' t wonder if Dan Cupid had played havoc with her plans.

" WW SXMM HARRY CRAIG WELLS, GRADUATE IN MUSIC Cornelia, Ga. Intercollegiate Prohibition Association; Fred. D. Kershner Literary Society ; Kersh- ner Quartette. Harry is our future Paderewski ; by the touch of his fingers on the piano he is able to awake sleeping harmonies and to call forth sounds that have charms to soothe the savage breast. He can calm the troubled mind with the sweetest melodies of composers from Liszt to Chopin and then arouse the echoes with the bugles and the cannon of Manassas. Nor does he confine himself to the ordinary means at the disposal of musicians, for Harry is a lover of originality. Whenever his eight fingers and two thumbs happen to be oth- erwise engaged he employs his olfactory organ to strike the necessary note. But it would be a mistake to suppose that Harry is a musician only. With his exquisite aes- thetic taste and his appreciation of beauty and learning he combines the reasoning povvers of a master logician. Harry believes in regularity of habits. Every afternoon at four o ' clock, rain or shine, he walks a quarter of a mile down the creek, just so far and no farther. But it would be a mistake to suppose that it is only for exercise. It is rather because he has so keen an appreciation of these Ver- nal days. " Kiiou ' U (o few, but prized as far as known. " W M.

Eight years this morning since the i.WA class of 1917 received their diplomas at dear old j lilligan and where are we now? Scattered everywhere, almost. So many of the boys and girls are married, some are teaching and the others have various professions. But for me, after having taught four years and having be- come resigned to become an " Old Maid, " there is nothing so refreshing as to hear of the varied experiences of my class-mates. College memories flood my mind this morning since I have just received four let- ters from girls who graduated with me. There maj ' be things in these letters of in- terest to you. Let us read them together. The first is from Nell. Dear old blarnej Nell. She lives on a farm near Jones- boro. None of us could have imagined this ' for Nell. But for the letter: Dearest " Jenks : " You girls used to think my idea of " raising hogs " was nothing more than a joke, but it has become a stern reality ' . I am living " on a large farm near Jonesboro and " Molly " and I are supremely happy. No one ever thought of " Molly ' s " turning his attention to farming, but on account of his " declining health and alarming decrease in weight " we were forced to move to the country. I know you are always interested in the boj ' S of our class. You should see my distinguished brother-in-law, the Hon. Albert Trusler. You no doubt know of his being in Congress and that he is becoming quite prominent in national affairs. His real talent was not discovered until after he left Milligan, and we think it marvelous that he has made such rapid strides in the political world. He is still unmarried, but it is rumored in Washington ' s social circle that he is pajnng his attention to the beautiful widow Hamblin, wife of J. R. Hamblin, our late Minister to France. " Molly " has just come in and tells me that " Pokie " is home on a vacation. Poor old " Pokie ! " After graduating from Johns Hopkins he went to New York and has made quite a success in the medical profession. But " Jenks, " he doesn ' t seem like the old " Pokie " we used to know; he sureb ' has changed. You know he has never married, and I really believe he is still in love with George Perry. I have heard that he is thinking of giving up his profession and of going to California to invest in an orange grove. This reminds me, " Jenks, " that you, too, have never married, and we often wonder why you did not get enough of the Milligan spirit to fall in love. I used to think that I would be content to read " Dutch " the rest of mj ' life, but now I know that nothing would be worth while without " Molly. " Well, dear, my household duties are calling me and I must bring ni) ' letter to a close. Write me real soon and tell me all about your dear good self. Affectionately, NELL CAMPBELL TRUSLER. Mountain View Farm. My next letter bears a foreign postmark and comes from South America. It ' s no doubt from " Missionary Martha, " whom you all know intended casting her lot in some foreign field. r 5 " I ® Lima, Peru, S. A. " Joe " Dear: No. 22 Sixth St. Doesn ' t it seem ages since were together, and so many things have happened since we left school. I wonder where all of our old Milligan friends are. I onljr hear occasionalh ' from some of them. Russell and I were married soon after he received his M. D. from Vanderbilt University. After a few days with our loved ones at Russell ' s old home we left for San Francisco. From there we sailed for South America, where we entered the mission work. I am very much interested in the work and Russell tries to be for my sake. We were in San Francisco almost a week and enjoyed our visit so much. Whom do you suppose we saw while there? No more nor less than Frank Farrow. He is posing for the " movies " and making his home with Rev. and Mrs. Paul Green. Mrs. Green was formerly Miss Annie Lucas. Isn ' t it queer how love affairs that originate at Milligan so often prove serious? Frank told us that Mrs. Green took such an interest in church work and was a great help to her husband. Well, " Joe, " I am to attend a committee meeting at the new Hospital which Rus- sell has just established, so must say good bye. Write me in care of Dr. R. B. Clark, Lima, Peru, S. A. Yours sincerely, MARTHA SPENCER CLARK. Now here is one from Laura Mary, who is traveling v ' ith her husband. " Little ' un " always liked to travel and I am sure she will have interesting things to tell us. Boston, Mass., June I, 192S. Dear : I have fully intended writing you for ages, but you perhaps know that " Peeps " is now playing ball with the National League and we are never in one place very long. I find this life very interesting but so strenuous that it sometimes taxes my nerves. In our travels we have met quite a few of our old Milligan friends, so after all the world is not so large. Last evening " Peeps " and I went to a splendid concert given by The Bailey Quar- tett and t o our great surprise we found Whillametta Bailey was directress. We were so glad to see her and to learn of her success in concert work. Another surprise we had : While in New York we found Harry Wells, who was preparing to go to Germany. You know since the war there is a great demand for American artists in Europe, and Harry has accepted a position in a Berlin school of music. He surely looks the part of a German Prof. His hair is longer than ever and he could easily be taken for the " Shade " of Liszt or Beethoven. " Joe, " do you ever hear from " Pete " Wade? I had a letter from her not long ago. She is still in Memphis, but instead of being a " movie " actress she has a splen- did dress-making establishment, and goes to Paris every year for her designs. She has never married, and has become a perfect ma n-hater. I don ' t know whether she was disappointed in love or just grew tired of the entire male se.x; anyway, she has developed into a very charming and capable woman. Lamar and I leave tomorrow for Philadelphia, so j ' ou ma3 ' address us there. As ever, LAURA MARY. My next and last letter is from Carsie Bowers Garrett : - iH) mf If IF iLo [g :| Dear Keith : Milligan College, June 1, 1925. Commencement is just over and we have had a very successful year. Harry has been President of Milligan for the past two years and will remain here next year. We have had a splendid faculty. Some of the teachers were Seniors in our class. Prof. Byrl White is occupying the chair of Education ; Mrs. Shipley is our Dean in Hardin Hall and j ' ou can ' t imagine what an excellent one she makes, but I can ' t keep from sympathizing with the girls. You know how we used to dread Mrs. Hopwood ' s " girls ' meeting? " Well, they were nothing to compare with Mrs. Shipley ' s demerit system. Another thing that is different from what it used to be, Harry does not allow social privilege but once a month. I think it absolute foolishness, but I guess he thinks he will profit by his experience. I wish you could have been here this past week. Milligan never looked so pretty before in all of its existence. As Mr. Hopwood used to say, " it stamped a picture on my mind which cannot be erased in twenty years. " The new Administration Build- ing stands where Mee Hall used to be and is a beautiful building. Just opposite Hardin Hall there is a new Library and Gymnasium. The old college building is called " Hopwood Memorial Plall " and mak es a splendid home for our boys. Harry and I live in the President ' s Cottage. You know I guess that Mr. Algood is pastor of one of our leading churches in Atlanta, Ga. We were so glad to have him deliver our Baccalaureate sermon this year. Speaking of ministers reminds me of poor Mr. Blackwell. He has been in a sanitarium for a number of years and it is rumored that he has a physical break- down. You know how hard he worked on t ie Annual. That was the cause of his illness. The poor fellow has my sympathy. I must not close this lengthy letter without telling you something of Mr. and Mrs. Hopwood. They have the dearest little cottage over on Hopwood Hill, and they are educating three boys here. Isn ' t that just like them? You must come to see us some time and we will enjoy talking over our many pleasant experiences here at Milligan. Hoping to hear from you soon, I am jrours lovingly, CARSIE BOWERS GARRETT. It is always a pleasure to receive letters from the members of the class of 1917, and I often wonder how well we are living up to the ideals of Christian Service and Character Building for which old Milligan stood, and about which we heard so much in morning class. But I have no time for reminiscence, for on my desk lies a splen- did article written by Margaret Godby, who has achieved distinction for her short stories and magazine articles. Margaret was a graduate of 1917 class and gave evi- dence of unusual ability. Well, there goes the bell and my class will be waiting for me. mm w J?z 2d © Lifc? ' s Sii ' eetes( Things. The sweetest things in this life we live Are the cheer we shed and the joys we give; And fresh hope springs for the days ' supply Of force for the toils of each passer-by. It is sweet to give from a fount God-filled, And the outflow spaces for larger jo3 That enters in with no lingering pace With its gladdening touch of the heavenly grace. The joy-talent used is the one augments And gains by the law of increments Divinely poised, from the one to ten. By gradations found in the lives of men. Thus earth and heaven are not far apart As they seemed before this touch of the heart ; And the black, uncanny birds of despair Take flight at once from such sunny air. " BETA. " Hi ini IF 5 Z IL [D] m0r Class IHtU ' E, the class of nineteen and seventeen, being about to leave this sphere, in full possession of a sound mind, memory, and understanding, do make and publish this, our last will and testament, herebj ' revoking and making void all former wills by us at an} time heretofore made. First, we do direct that our funeral services shall be conducted by our friends and well-wishers, the Faculty, assisted by such ones of the village folk as have deemed it their bounden duty and undeniable right to maintain a strict oversight of all our actions while in college. As to such estates as the fates have been pleased to bestow upon us, and we, by our brain and brawn and any other means whatsoever, have been able to acquire, we do now and herein dispose of the same as follows : Item 1 : To the Junior Class, we will and bequeath them our exalted position in the college, provided, said class assumes the modesty and dignity becoming to the Lords of the Hill. Item 2 : To the Class of Eighteen we also bequeath the three front rows in chapel, on condition that they listen calmly and interestedly to all anti-cigarette lectures, and never by any chance allow one of their number to doze or studj ' , during the reading of the morning Scripture lesson. Item 3: To our successors, we also bequeath a Senior table, over which no Faculty member shall preside and at which abundant supplies of " Zip " and rice shall be served not oftener than twenty-one times each week. Item 4: One large, badly worn, cushion we also bequeath to the aforesaid class, to be used in their supplications for Senior privileges, yiay there be raised up amongst their number, some one eloquent enough to win from the Faculty their consent to all the privileges that the class of Seventeen was forced to steal. Item S : To the college as a whole we give and bequeath a ten-acre pasture lot and poultry-yard, to be located not less than one hundred yards frotn the kitchen door, and we do direct that the funds necessary for the purchase of said lot shall be raised by the sale of chickens and milk, formerly consumed by the Cross Sextette. Item 6: We give and bequeath to each member of the student body the undisputed right to, at least, one gallon of hot water each Saturday, provided the price of coal does not advance. Item 7: To the girls of the combined Juniors, Sophomores, and F ' reshmen classes, we will and bequeath some comfortable seats at the front entrance of the College grounds, said seats to take the place of the hard iron bars upon which they have been forced to spend so manj ' weary hours this year. Item 8: Having experienced the great be nefits derived from socials, we do hereb3 ' will and bequeath to all the students of Milligan College, in addition to the regular Sunday afternoon social, all the socials which they can honestly steal or otherwise obtain. JF ' iTM. IL(D Item 9: To the Ancient Language Department, we will and bequeath one attract- ive young lady assistant. Item 10: To Mrs. Hopwood, we do give and bequeath a bell, the silvery tones of which can be heard by her " sweet girlies " in all their favorite haunts, even to the remotest parts of the building and grounds. Item 11 : To the Faculty, we bequeath the contentment and satisfaction that comes to a body of men and women who have striven long, liard and faithfully to accomplish a worthy task and have wholly succeeded. The achievement has been the transformation of the large class of ignorant and inexperienced Freshmen into the present well-equipped body of Seniors, ready to go forth and successfully meet and solve the problems of life. All the rest and residue of our propert} ' , whatsoever and wheresoever, of what nature, kind and quality soever it ma} ' be, and not herein before disposed of, we do give and bequeath to our beloved Dean, for his use and benefit absolutely. And we do hereby constitute and appoint the said Dean sole executor of this, our last will and testament, said executor to provide any funds that may be necessary for the ex- ecution of this will. In testimony whereof, we have set our hands and seals this fifth day of June, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and seventeen. i ' xtM - 7 -eo - Views Along the Narrow Gauge M -tiK. f uMIKS Junior Class WMX: MMMW-MMMM Kuntor Class " Ut Priiiii Simus ' Yell : Zip-e-zi, zip-ezan We are the Juniors of Milligan: Small in number, but large in " pep " , That ' s the way we gel our " rep " COLORS: Orange and Green Flower : Narcissus mificers MARY KERFAUVER .

And our inner natures rule us ; So it ' s back to Milligan Where there are new rules to fool us And beaus to catch, if we can. And O, the jolly times we spent Thru the campus, gym, and hall. Both Cupid and Minerva their good help lent To avail — and none at all. But our school year fades into the past. Like mirage to the wanderer ' s eye. For neither joy nor sorrow can last Nor the fragrance of good deeds die. Our comradeship nears now its close, And you, our schoolmates true. We value your friendship like the rose Doth prize the kiss of the dew. So here ' s to dear old Milligan, And here ' s to the Seniors, too. Here ' s to the days that come not again.

Today, in the midst of the contest and strife. In fitting ourselves for the battles of life. Stern duty ' s call is so loud and so long. We have no time for Pleasure ' s sweet song. What if the heavens are glowing in splendor If the wind in the trees sings a tune sweet and tender. This sum must be worked, that lesson be learned Or j ' ou from your class be indignantly spurned. But methinks a time in our lives shall arrive When we shall be scattered as bees from a hive ; Some dwelling in homes with earth ' s nobles, will dine. While others, we may find feeding the swine. Then memory will bear me again to the scenes To where the clear water of Buffalo gleams ; Sit again in the shade of the many leaved trees, Breathe the pure air of Heaven from over the leas. Time has erased from the memory, the stains Of labor and turmoil and unceasing pains ; Forgotten are all the ills that annoyed. And the days spent at Milligan alone were enjoyed. There, mountain and valley add beauty and charm. Afar from the scenes of strife and alarm; There, the flowers are brightest, such songs of the birds, Such murmuring of waters no ear ever heard. Again we list to the sound of the bells As they ring for classes, their silvery tongue tells, ' Tis harmony to him who at his books stayed. But discord to those who in idleness played. W IF Jl IL d] We ' re again in the Library and gaze at the store Of books of all sizes of wisdom and lore : From which we have gathered such gleanings of truth As will sober the pride and the folly of youth. We think of our teachers whose locks are now gray, With the conflicts they ' ve fought for many a day, And happy are we if on each beloved face. Our conduct has left no sorrowful trace. We think of our school-mates, soine happy and gay, Whose faces were bright as a morning in May, Others, whose faces were so overcast. They sent chills to our hearts like December ' s cold blast. Now, scattered are they to the four-winds of Heaven, God grant that they be as fresh measures of leaven. Commingled with men and with women of earth. May save many souls when the Master appeareth. With thoughts of our schoolmates come the glad holiday, When book, slate, and work were exchanged for play; We climbed the steep mountain, or delved in the cave. Gazed on Doe ' s rugged canyons or Watauga ' s blue waves. Milligan, loved spot in all earth ' s domain. May truth, justice and wisdom e ' er with thee remain, ' Gainst the stronghold of sin send forth thy loud calls. As the notes that resounded round Jericho ' s walls. The fruits of thy wisdom thou freely dost give. In teaching thy children the true way to live ; Thou hast uplifted many and strengthened and blessed. And granted reward to the noblest and best.

Kershner Literary Society was founded October 29, 1 911, for the purpose of affording its members a training in literary and oratorical work beyond what could be obtained in the regular college course and in the studies of the classroom. We, as well as our founders, realize the fact that in after-life it ill he necessar} ' not onl) ' to have wide knowledge concerning matters of human interest, but to be able to think ac- curately and express our thoughts clearly, forcefulh ' and elegantly upon those subjects. We believe that in fitting ourselves so to think and express our thoughts such a training as may be obtained through society work is of prime importance. Such being our beliefs, the aim which we, as loyal Kersh- ners, have constantly kept in mind, has been to advance as best we might the standard of our society work and, in fact the standard of literary work in general at Milligan. To our success in carr}ing into effect these, our aims, and in putting into practice these our beliefs, the character and ability of our members who have won honor and distinction for themselves and their society while within these halls and who, after departing froin their Alma Mater, have gathered fresh laurels in the outside world, may well bear witness. It is our purpose not to rest content with the glory gained for us by our worthy pre- decessors, but to press constantly onward, to carry the banner of progress farther forward with each passing year, and to gain ever fresh conquests which will bring praise and honor to us as individuals, to our society as a whole, and, above all, to our Beloved Alma Mater, MIIvLIGAN COLLEGE.

" ' Get in the Game ' — so runs the cry Across the Nation ' s sweep; Where flags are tossed against the sky, And silent shadows creep; Where camp lights flicker in their glow And pickets pass the sign — To face whatever Fate may throw Against the forming line. " ' Get in the Game ' — the old, old call Has caught a newer note; But still the ancient echoes fall By mountain and by moat; Where life is something more than dreams, And softer days have gone, Before the greater day that gleams Against a redder dawn. " ' Get in the Game ' — the echo lifts Beyond the grip of fate, And farther still the slogan drifts To where the legions wait; The ancient slogan of the clan. Where those have met before To fill the line up, man by man, And find the winning score. " n L C o: L C ClBi I - 2 f C D td H 3 •- - s? Hfa P S ir. ca H D ei i " t 3 ' Ci z • o Oo e- t- 0- 7 -1 H 0.

And my heart beats right gaily For the task that comes daily. I pause at the noontide to hear thy glad singing Which tells of the glory of work that ' s well done, And am heartened again for the load now grown heavy. The long road that seemed short when the task was begun. And I lift my load cheerily And trudged on right merrily. And then in the evening when twilight is falling I come to thee worn with the cares of the day; The silver moonlight, the night wind caressing, And thy low gentle murmur soothes all care away : For you whisper of peace And froin sorrow surcease.

The athlete thoroughly en- joys the physical training which he obtains here ; the intellectual one can find plenty of opportunities to direct his mind in its investigations for truths, and the religious folks can stand up and sing hymns, quote the first Psalm, etc., all day long unmolested. The happy medium for all this is found in the ' Social Department. Every Sunday afternoon and on special occasions, one can see the ath- lete temporarily forget baseball ; the intellectual lower his spectacles, and the religious folks unfold their hands and crawl out of their pious solemnity long enough to sit up and take notice. From the time of the opening recep- tion of each 3 ' ear, iintil the time for departure in the Spring, Master Cupid is one of the busiest persons on the Hill — his darts are always in vogue. Cupid naturally has his opposers just like every other idealist, but he finds staunch supporters in the student body. He meets a drawback on most ever}- corner, unless the participants are wise enough and slick enough to escape the ever watchful eye of Mrs. Hopwood, and the " reporters " in general. The ways and means of escaping are many and varied, and as ma} ' be expected, the students know the very latest twist in these things. The athletes invariably take a walk or play tennis daily — the intellectual ones al- ways flock to the classroom in pursuit of Knowledge : while the religious couples take their troubles to the chapel. Through it all, tho ' , is woven that inexplicable Milligan spirit which binds all hearts together. It is at Milligan that the grass grows greener, the flowers smell sweeter, friends seem nearer and girls dearer — no matter where we may roam, there will always be a happy memory of the " dear dead days beyond recall " spent at jNIilligan in sweet communion with the best girls. ■ :::gl ' Bl: ■jl ' g MMM: As Inu SItkr it Editor ' s Note: When the joke is old the application is new.
