"THE BRIDGE BUlLDER" "An old man going a lone Highway, Came at the evening, cold and gray To a Chasm Vast and Deep and Wide, The old man crossed in the twilight dim, The sullen stream had no fear for himg But he turned when safe on the other side And built a Bridge to stem the tide. "Old Man," said a fellow Pilgrim near, You are wasting your Strength in buildin Your journey will end with the ending day SOPHOMORES LEE PARKS LOUISE BLACKLEDGE CHERRY WILCOXEN KENNETH IHRIG Rov JACKSON ' REX LANGLEY g here 5 You never again will pass this way. You"ue crossed the Chasm deep and wide, Why build you this Bridge at eventide? "The cld man lifted his old gray head. Good Friend, in the path I've come, he said, There followeth after me today A Youth whose feet must pass this way. This Chasm, that has been as naught to me To that fair haired lad may a pitfall be, He too, must cross in the twilight dim, C ood Friend, I am Building this Bridge for him f f., f.

If is .fli2El'l0V5.PJ View The Muskogee Junior College was created in l92O by the local Board of Education. lt pros- pered from that date until the year i928 as a one- year institution, sponsored by tthe University of Oklahoma, when it was established as a two-year institution. H The courses offered were and are equivalent to the same courses offered in the University. Through the personal attention of Dean Roy L. Gitttinger who visited the junior college classes, giving suggestions and constructive criticism, and through suggestions from Dr. S. R. Hadsell of the English Department and through aid from Dean S. W. Reaves, the courses offered were carefully arranged. The advantages accruing to students by virtue of their attendance at the one-year Junior College led the patrons ofthe school to make an insistant demand that the one-year college be extended to a two-year Junior College. In response to this urgent request, the Board of Education, therefore, early in the spring of 1928 invited Mr. George C. Wells, State High School Inspector, Dean Roy L. Gittinger, University of Oklahoma, and Dr. Paul B. Sears, Science Department of the University, to visit the junior college and to make definite recommendations for the establishment of the two- year course. Upon the recommendation at the above three school men, the State Board of Education authorized the establishment of the Muskogee Junior College, making it accredited with all other state institutions. Since then it has been regularly inspected and approved by the accrediting com- mittee consisting of J. .Andrew Holly, chairman ot the Committee of Higher Institutions of Learning, Roy L. Gittinger, Dean of Administration, Univer- sity of Oklahoma, N. Conger, Dean of School of Education, Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College. From May l93O to May l94O, certificates of completion of two years work have been granted by the Board ot Education in Muskogee to 273 students. The school is governed by the students and their studious attitude. The only student office is that of president of the student body. The school emblem and nickname is "Green Frogs." The colors for the school are green and white. HOTZIGGITY! PHSSED MY ORAL TODAV English extra sessions are a very common thinw in Muskogee Junior college.
