Two primary objectives lie back of the activities sponsored by the Department of
Religion in the Oakwood College. Stemrning from a carefully planned and con-
centrated program, the first objective is calculated to help every student to
reveal in his person and life's pursuit the impression of an inspired evangel of
truth. Secondly, for students aspiring to the Ministry and related fields of
service, the Department provides specialized training and limited experience.
Students from this department occupy positions of leadership throughout the
nation and in overseas mission service. Among the most successful clergymen
- Pastors and Evangelists - are students from the Department of Religion of

as one of the fundamental courses at
Oakwood. Effectively conjoining the
teaching and learning processes the
Department of History develops the
students' vision through the delineation
of man's story preparing him to meet
the problems of today's special orders
with intelligence. In the upper
biennium courses special emphasis is
directed on independent study, re-
search in historical problems and
methods and the profluence ol' thought

In order to equip the student with a

Oakwood's Department of Secondary Education is truly in its infancy, yet it
feels that its growth will be comparatively fast. At present a resourceful group
of young men and women are martriculated as students Working toward the
Bachelor of Arts degree in Secondary Education or a Bachelor of Science Degree
in the same field. Students pursuing this course enjoy the opportunities afforded
for cultural and intellectual development. This department maintains a place
of dignity in the esteem of both students and faculty. The invitation of the
Secondary Education Department is: "Won't you come and join in the nicest
work ever committed to man - Secondary Education?"

G. HUNTER, Professor of Romance Languages
"The man who speaks another language besides his
own has another string to his bow."
With the fullest realization of the potency of this
statement and an awareness of the opportunities
open to potential language students in a modern
world, the department of Romance Languages has
very seriously devoted itself to the task of laying
a thorough foundation in such mechanics of French
and Spanish as will enable students to read, write.
understand, and communicate their thoughts in
these languages. By a study of the Literatures oi'
the countries whose languages are taught, the aim
is to make acquaintance with the most celebrated
literary minds as well as give a knowledge ot' each
country's civilzation and nationality. It is very'
gratifying to note that at the termination ot' the
present school year, six students in this department
will have completed their majors, one in French. tire
in Spanish. Ot' these, four are 1950 degree c.in.i,-
The English Department has for its
objectives, first, the development of
correctness and facility in the four
phases of communication: Writing,
speaking, reading, and listeningg
secondly, the fostering of appreciation
in the student for the best
noblest in the great literary heritage
of the world. Such training will
only make for the enjoyment of living
but will contribute most vitally
ward his, rendering effective service
in the Master's vineyard.

C. B. GENTRY
Professor of Mathematics
"It is a remarkable fact that the mathematical inventions which have proved
to be most accessible to the masses are also those which exercised the greatest
influence on the development of pure mathematics."
This department is making rapid progress under the capable tutorship of
C. B. Gentry. The aim is to give every student a good working knowledge of
every day problems by instilling in the students the correct principles of solving
mathematical problems and equations.

Formal education applies its pattern to the mind, but only through books does
the mind itself, enrich, deepen, apply, modify and develop those patterns in
individual life fulfillment. There is no place Where the intellectual tone of a
college is more evident than in the library. Oakwood is anxious, therefore,
that its library be used for study, and quiet dignified conduct is required of
all who enter its portals. The administration strives to add worthwhile volumes
with unrelenting regularity for circulation and for reference, and maintains
subscriptions to over 200 periodicals and magazines. A group of Well-trained,
efficient assistants provides adequate library service and gives necessary help to
students seeking information on topics for research. Attention is also given to
building up collections of material by and about the Negro. A well-needed library

In every heart there is an inherent
love for beauty. We are made so that
we respond to the ideal and the in-
finite even though we cannot and do
not fully comprehend either. The
beauty that we seek is definitely
found in art where the artist deals
exclusively with things as they at'-
fect the human soul. Art is the in-
terpretation of the great eternal real-
ities of life. Throughout the ages
philosophers and intellectual men
have been unable to agree about what
and who Christ is: but human hearts
in every generation have united in
love for this matchless personality in
whom the ideal ot' all men, individ-
ually and collectively, is realized.
Here at Oakwood we feel that the
universal love ot' beauty is one ot' the
resources of human life that Christ-
ianity ought to pervade with its spirit,
and claim as its own. No wonder John

H. L. WRIGHT, Instructor of Industrial Arts, and
Student, R. LAKE
The Department of Industrial Arts has for decades been the right arm of this
College. It offers theory and practical work in the following fields: Carpentry,
Mechanical Drawing, Vlfoodworking, Brick Masonry and Cabinet Making.
Students who desire a degree in the above fields may receive their preparatory
training here. Under the capable supervision of Professor H. L. Wi'ight, one
receives proficient instruction and guidance. The responsibility of this depart-
ment is the general maintenance of all buildings on the campus. This affords
great opportunities for student workers to obtain a practical and working
knowledge of the trade. Truly this is the department where sudents become
skilled workmen and learn to Hbuild houses and inhabit them."
'I me Agricultural Department of Oakwood College is developing vcry rapidly
the efficient direction of Professor R. Smith, reecntly appointed manager
Il ig ol ' - Farm and instructor in Agronomy. The department has acquired sofnzo- of
Zthe most useful modern types of farming implements and is doing a very
commendable work in training young men in this vocation, as well as providing
ywog for the defraying of part of their expenses. It is well recognized that
agriculture plays an important role in our American Economic system, Ln'
young men should be encouraged to prepare for life by way of the land. A
" companion department is the College Dairy with a fair sized herd which is
being increased regularly. At present the Dairy furnishes an ample supply of
milk for the entire College community. Mr. M. C. Custard, who has charge of
the Dairy, sees to it that there is a number of calves for the market annually,
as well as the supplying of good wholesome milk. These two departments
'work hand in hand with the cafeteria in making provision for adequate vitamin
supply to the students of the college.

July 1, 1949, marked the beginning of the College Press as at separate Depart-

has been assuming its own obligations. Practically all ot' the printing for the
college is done by the College Press. as well as a fair amount ol t-ozntm-it-iul
work. Enlargement in plant space and additions to equipment are be-ine made
constantly. Recent additions include new fonts of type. stapler. and other
printing material, and p1'eVious to this, an automatic feed 12x18 job press was
purchased. A course in printing is offered as an incentive to young people who
might desire this field for a lil'e-work. and also to provide future xrtwrkers for

The sick student is never cured with two aspirins and a glass of water. In our

office and adequate equipment for the treatment of all types of minor ills. Some
treatments include the ultraviolet-ray, hot fomentations, massage, and minor
throat treatments. Mrs. H. M. Moseley, R. N., is on call at all times and is ably
assisted by Misses Carmela Nebblett and Reita Hundly. Whenever you feel the
need of medical attention, drop in and you're certain to leave feeling much
better than you did when you entered.

The Engineering department is a very active and important division of the
college industries. It is under the directon of Hollis Knight, a recent graduate
of the college. In conjunction with the Industrial Arts department, it takes
care of the general maintenance of the campus utilities, which includes Welding,
plumbing, and electrical work. Thus, we see that there will be no dripping
faucets, no short circuit, and no burst boilers, as the department keeps the
campus fires burning. The department is responsible for the water supply,
electric service maintenance, and heating systems of the entire compound. Due
to the steady increase of work a jeep has been secured to accommodate the

Records and Finances both require constant vigilance
and strict accounting. That is the responsibility of the
treasury department. The treasurer's office requires
the service of at least four individuals H a bookkeeper,
a cashier, an accountant, and a treasurer. For the
most part, students do the bookkeeping. ln order to
keep a continuous flow of trained bookkeepers on
hand, one or two students are added to the office force
each year. At the end of four years of practical
experience gained while pursuing their college course,
the students are quite thoroughly indoctrinated in the
fundamentals of bookkeeping. They also learn the
duties of a cashier by having to assume the responsi-
bility of keeping in balance a petty cash fund, cashing
checks, money orders, etc., and seeing that they are
properly endorsed. The students learn how to make
up bank deposits and replenish the petty cash fund.
Registration day does not begin and end the activities

The United Student Movement of Oakwood College has gained an important
place in the activities of the student body. No extra-curricular activity is of
greater importance, for the Movement involves every student, and demands
the support of every Oakwood College Student and Faculty member. Knowing
that self-government is the best government, the Movement has, aside from
the executive committee, a Faculty-Student Council to work out the problems
facing the students. It also has a Committee whose duty it is to govern the
social activities of the College, and it has proved an asset to the institution with
its contributions. The publication of the t'Spreading Oak," and the College
annual, "The Acorn," along with the regular business of the association, afford
many students an opportunity to take their places in worthwhile activities.
The officers and all the branch committees of the organization are going the
limit to make Oakwood College one of the best institutions in the South.

Oakwood College feels justly proud to be able to place before you
the ACORN. Within this volume is the story and picture record
of events, friends, teachers, visitors, and everything that has
made the past school year a reality. The 1950 ACORN has aimed
to highlight the most important activities of the year, in the hope
that it will waft sweet reminiscences in the years to come of the
happy days spent on the campus during 1949-50. Turner C.
Battle, the Editor-in-Chief, has been a student-teacher at the
College for several years, and views college life from two per-
spectives - that of student and that of teacher. From his analysis
of college life and organizations, he has been able to weave a web
of loveliness around this volume that makes it more than a picture
book. The success of the ACORN must be attributed to the un-
tiring efforts and excellent co-operation of the staffg but without
our able advisor, Professor C. A. Pitter, the job would have been
a more difficult one. Under his direction the staff was willing to
sacrifice hours of study, recreation, and personal appointments
to put in hard work, often extending into the late hours of the
night in an effort to meet the printer's deadline. The staff has
endeavored to present a worthwhile representation of life at Oak-
wood College that should enhance school spirit and a kindred
interest in all the divisions of the College. We are happy to send
out to you the ACORN for 1950.

The spirit and enthusiasm of Oakwood College is
reflected to its readers by the Spreading Oak, official
organ of the United Student Movement. The cir-
culation touches nearly 40 states in the union. The
S. O. offers opportunity for students with journalistic
aptitude and ability to develop their talent by report-
ing events and contributing articles to the publication.
On that day in each month on which the paper is
ready for circulation, nothing can deflect the attention
of every campus citizen from eagerly reading the
Spreading Oak. Pleasantries and comradeship in
work more than compensates for the long weary hours
that the staff must work, and the headaches to meet
deadlines, and the writer's cramps from editing and

Members of "The Alabama Singers" do not receive

sing because they like to sing, whether it be the
sounding the marine high C, or the ponderant depth

either have been natives of the countries about which
they speak, or have visited or lived in them for

Now-a-days our memories of Oakwood are based upon stories, poetry, songs,
and photographs. No longer can we participate in vespers, hikes, and campus
dates or re-live the wonderful scenes of those days, - scenes that have fled
swiftly into the past. College days have gone like a robe, dropped from the
shoulders of a dancer in some flashing roundelay. Their memories creep
slowly and quietly through our minds regardless of where we are or what we
are doing. Through each heart a streak of laughter echoes or from our eyes
tears revealing the glory of Auld Lang Syne moisten our cheeks, but we wipe
our eyes and before our vision, clear and bright are the friends, classmates,
and teachers of yesterday, all full of beauty, strength, and power. As we turn
the pages of Oakwood's family album, let us allow our minds to wander over
the stages of our school-days of yesteryear. Recall those memories of class-
mates, socials, movies, parties, clubs, hikes, and warm friends: they are all
before us as new as if they had happened yesterday. We will realize as never
before that the real Oakwood with its squirrels, rolling lawns, and beautiful
surroundings is only a whisper set to a swaying melody and sung from the
familiar voices of her followers. These voices belong to those that sat in the
vespers, participated in campus activities, longed to be home, shared in hopes
of a greater tomorrow, and pledged to be true to dear ole Oakwood. Now
that those days have gone, we, along with friends and relatives, must sit in
silence letting our hearts and minds wade joyfully in this pool of memories,
hear the voices of our friends and loved ones, see the vari-colored leaves fall
one by one to the ground, eye a little squirrel glide from tree to tree, or join
a group on the way to classes. Remember, these scenes have all gone, but we
can still see the familiar faces of those who make the silhouetts of our

"Dorm" Life is one of the best parts of
college routine, compounded of regi-
mented food, of bull sessions, of under-
ground friends Which now and then
come to the surface like a streak of
lightning, This life is most active in
the evenings when groups gather in
rooms for a brief chat. This affects even
the most pious individuals, and often
these persons are sounding away like
new trumpets. It means fads that
spread life wild fire through the dorm
and die out in a weekg it means using

"LET ALL THE PEOPLE PRAISE THEEY'
No student who has passed through the portals of Oakwood has ever lost the
memory and the inspiration of the church services in the college chapel. Long
after they have ceased to reminisce upon the exciting afternoon games and
evenings of recreation or the stunning problems in mathematics and baffling
exercises in Englsh, the hauntng mists of tune from the college choir and the
venerable, inspiring, and satisfying word "in due season" will be wafted down
memory's lane like a whisper of love, reminding them that the journey is
almost done. The college church seeks to train the members to be 'tworkers
together with God," by taking an active part in all the annual campaigns, and
make their goal a harvest of souls withal.
The Junior Department of the Oakwood
Sabbath School has set as its goal the W
salvation of the "lambs" of the fold. B51-'wer
This department of the Sabbath School M
is sub-divided into three separate groups '
-the Junior-Primary division, the
Kindergarten division, and the Cradle
Roll division. Each division has its own
leader and separate corps of workers.
The total membership is approximately
one-hundred. The Oakwood Sabbath
School serves a dual purpose. It provides
practical experience in Sabbath School
work for the students. In striving to
point the youngsters to Christ, they are
drawn closer to Him themselves, and
by utilizing the evangelistic possibilities ,ur-5
for children and youth in the Sabbath School, we are safeguarding the "Church

4 Written in anticipation of the reminiscences of the
f Class of ,50 thirty years hence.
' How our hearts thrill with warmth as we sit in On Oakwood's one thousand acres of sod
We had many gentry of worth.
A d""ll d-'tth'dd .
S We pon el Cel Om CO ege ays Jus lee eca es ago There was Dave and his auto named the 'tRod"
4 We were carefree, blithe, indifferent, with not the least , , ,
I "suspection" He constantly filled us with mirth.
l That life was full of troubles, heartache, pain and woe.
l Remember the Spreading Oak battle and strife?
W Remember the Library, and the old college bell, If Certainly WHS hard to SHVG- h
How on Halloween night, it rang loud and clear? Collins and Nukes SP-W9 it new life-
Remember in winter how the "Oakwood" rain fell B1'0Ught it back f1'0m the brink Of the S1'aVe-
, From morning to night on the days dark and drear?
What experiences we had in the Ingathering Campaign
As we worked with a will for the cause of our Lord.
We labored, walked, and struggled, and never did
W We worked for the victory of a heavenly reward.
Remember the ruts in the old Oakwood road?
We bumped along over them in our fancy school bus.
The bus turned over and spilled all its load,
A-nd the students crawled out all covered with dust
The dear old "Rec Hall"-what fond memories it brings:
Oh, the hours we spent there in sport!
We had marches, games, and community sings.
We even went there to court.
Ah, those good, old days we can never recall.
Three cheers for the girls of Cunningham Hall!
Three cheers for the fellows-stalwart, upright, and
A six-gun salute to the Classmates of Fifty.

Someone has said Education is the apprenticeship of life." In this process o
education the academy veais aie impoitant oms Mastering your academy
work completes the first necessary step toward a useful career - where orie-
can prove to oneself 'ind to others that one has the intellectual ability to succeed
in a higher course of study. The world meds you. And the first objective oi
Oakwood College Academy is to te ich 'ind inspire the youth to consecrate their
lives and talents to work for God. That you drift not along unaware of your
potentialities, we demand the best of you, realizing the need for the full use of
your talents. Remember
"Learning by study must be won:
'Twas ne'er entailed from sire to son."
To prospective students, we extend a sincere invitation to join us for another
MRS. S. A. BRANTLEY. B. A.. M. A.
We are Very proud of the members of the
Academy Faculty. We are not only proud of them
because of their achievements but because they
are a part of us.
The staff consists of the following:
Mr. John Beale, B. A., Instructor of Bible.
Mrs. F. L. Peterson, B. A., Instructor of His-
tory and English.
Mr. Emerson Cooper, B. S., Instructor of
Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics.

This is the group which helps us to aspire to
the greatest heights that can be attained.

is none other than Miss Edythe Marie Young.
Her home is Pasadena, California, She is a
member of the graduating class of 1950 and
is also Valedictorian of this class. Having a
beautiful low voice and a cultured talent of
speech, she was chosen as class orator. Her
smiling face has brought joy to many on
Oakwood's campus, and we are convinced
that she Will do likewise when she becomes
the nurse that she has long dreamed of.

My costly jewels rare,
