In this comparative quiet Charles Mehaffey, the chairman pro-tern, managed to get an election over. The gang then had brilliant ideas concern- ing a reformation., so they elected as " leader " or " big boss, " the Reverend Charles D. Mehaffey, and carried the steps toward reformation still farther by electing the Right Reverend Samuel Adkins as Charlie ' s right hand man. As secretary and hold er of the loot they selected that noble personage, Jo-an Sims. After the election they retired to each of their respective strongholds, and all was quiet along the front yard. November came drifting along with Armistice Day and the Tennessee-Kentucky football game. It was about this time that the cops, under the leadership of some person named Robb, descended upon the gangsters. However after a terrific third degree Reverend Charles was found to be still in charge of his cohorts and his cohorts hold- ing subbornly on to their precinct. A few of the gang dropped out, but the majority of them were still in the field, chunking bombs and smiling. After the Christmas holidays a smaller clan which had been driven from the Centenary on ac- count of poor business condition; joined, and the peaceful riots continued. One rival gang, led by a ferocious blonde, one H. L. Davis, Jr , who called his cronies " Seniors, " dis- uted their right to operate in their chosen terri- tory. After considerable discussion the " cops " promised, on account of their long, devoted, and destructive service, to give certificates of distinc- tion to the Seniors and allow them to retire. In honor of their retirement the " Gang " on a night in February gave a blowout at the Robert E. Lee Hotel with cannons (not Pistol), machine guns, -v,T ENNESSEE WESLEY AN shot guns, bowie knives, daggers, bombs and all revolvers above 32 ' s barred. Somewhere about June 2, 1929, the " cops " i sued the certificates to the Davis mob, and declared a three months truce- The " gangsters " were glad to accept it as it gave them a chance to recover from wounds, and sore feet (and heads). Once more all was quiet in the hall ways. Returning to the field of conflict in September of 1931 with J. Neal Ensminger as general boss, Je sie Crowder as his assistant, and Jo-an Sims as publicity agent, the gang had given up all idea of reformation and consequently elected Earl Henry as " boss " with none other than FranK (Abie) Ho- back, Jr., and Ruby Hart as his assistants, and sent " Windy " Stivers and Mary Esther Lee to the gen- eral council. They had diminished somewhat in size, but the craftine s which comes with experieiice was a satisfactory substitute for the " gangsters " gone. The going was easier this time, and the " clan ' went through its first conflict without the loss of a single gun and very little ammunition. But hi tory must repeat itself. A crowd who called themselves " Juniors " and who were led by a young upstart, J. Mac Ray, challenged them for the right to carry on in the territory where they had so long held sway. To avoid a battle, they accepted the same terms they had forced upon the Davis mob to accept, and soon stepped up and received their certificates, after which they re- tired or go to find another battle ground. But they have had their day and are ready to go. Two whole years they have sat in chapel lis- tening to college presidents, lawyer, doctors, and preachers talk in the vain hope that one of them would be Al Capone in disguise. But after all, they may not be so tough. A crowd that is so unselfishly conscientious in their work of destruction must have a few in their midst who are true, and will be a credit to the nation; so all hail the Gangsters. May their tribe in- crease! — Earl Henry- ATHENS, TENNESSE E OCATUIdA ,liaii CLASS WILL We, the class of 1931, in 69 individual and dis- tinct parts, being about to pass out of this sphere of education in full possession of a crammed mind, well-trained memory, and almost super human understanding, do make and publish this, our last will and testament, hereby revoking and making void all former wills and promises by us heretofore made.

The Affirmative team, composed of Clyde Bearden, Fred Puett. and William Bates, debat- ing at home, made a very creditable showing to support the travelling Negative Team. The latter, made up of J. Neal Ensminger and Sam Adkins, brought back from their first tour the Junior Col- lege Championship of Tennessee and North Caro- lina, and, by winning from Milligan College, a high standing in the Smoky Mountain Conference. Miss Lillian Danielson, the coach, then entered her charges in the Southern Tournament of the Southern Association of Colleges, held in Atlanta, Georgia. Although the only Junior college in the tournament and by far the smallest school repre- sented, Wesleyan annexed Second Place by elim- inating three Southern Intercollegiate Conference teams: Louisiana State University, U. of Florida, and North Carolina State.

Miss Catherine Colston Assistant Raul Menendez TO THE STUDENT BODY: In a very short time now the old college bell is going to ring the farewell note and we are going to separate. Some of us will pick up our studies in a new field of education and others of us will begin an application of that knowledge we have acquired, but I firmly believe that whereever we may go and whatever we may do if we only keep the spirit that we now have we will conquer all our obstacles and will find achievement close at hand. As I look around about me and know the strug- gles I have undergone, in a way I feel despondent but when I read the Council records and note our passed measures for the school ' s benefit I am glad, yes, even happy. No one knows better than I, how far short I have fallen in accomplishing all I would like to have accomplished, but I have given you my best and I can retire knowing that in every action taken by the Council I followed what I thought was the best plan for all concerned. And as we part after the year ' s work I am ask- ing each of you to take this little message with you as a token of my sincere appreciation of the office you had so graciously given me- Although I have been on the topmost round of the ladder, I know who held the ladder in place and I know who boosted me. IT WAS EACH STUDENT CON- TRIBUTING HIS OR HER PART. I am thanking you for your co-operation. I ap- preciate the attitude you have had throughout the year and now I include every student when I say " Friends, together we have had a good year and in the future I wish you well.

Kettron ----- Secretary-Treasurer Aileen Templeton Sponsor REPRESENTATIVES TO STUDENT COUNCIL Edith Shields Porter Cooper Raul Menendez Juniors! Juniors! Here we are! See us, hear us, look at us! Did you ever see such a class as the class of ' 31? We come, we see, we will conquer. Not in the spirit of Ca;sar nor like the great Napoleon, but in the true spirit of Tennessee Wesleyan. We have come from all over these United States of ours — from the sea-shores of Florida, from the cotton fields of Georgia and Alabama, from the blue grass regions of Kentucky, from the historic Carohnas and Virginia, from the rich oil fields of Pennsylvania, and from all parts of our own Tennessee. We even have a few from Cuba. You will find our boys represented on the football field, on the baseball diamond, both boys and girls on the basketball and tennis courts — in fact the Juniors are to be found where there is any kind of athletics. Many Juniors appeared in the plays of the year, in the glee clubs and music recitals. You will find us among the debaters, in the orchestra — yea — everywhere. We are proud of our first year, but we are looking eagerly ahead when we hope to do more to help build up the spirit of Wesleyan — to climb ever higher. Great in quantity as well as quality the Juniors of ' 31 feel they have already contributed to the life of our college. We know that the future holds much in store for us, and it is with glad hearts that we look forward to the time when we shall no longer be verdant freshmen, but shall take our place as leaders. Page 3 THE JUNIOR KOCATULA Class History Tennessee Wesleyan College January 4, 1951 Dear Wes: — I ' ve just returned from my first trip to Chicago, accompanying President Davis, (Sticky), on one of his annual begging expeditions. I had quite a surprise the other day. I stepped into a barber shop for a hair cut and there was " Big Shot " Puett. Do you remember him? He is now owner of a large chain of barber shops. He has married Mary Jo Martin. You remember they were both members of our Junior class in ' 31. It brought back memories of our first year in college. How we gathered the first few days in the gym for matriculation. This seemed a process of brow-beating at the hands of the faculty to our confused minds, and the signing for courses of which we had only the vaguest conception. How we were threatened and maltreated by the business manager and the bursar until we had mortgaged everything but our souls to pay the debts we had been forced to contract! After we passed through that, we were so confused we did not care what came next; but with the kind administration of the faculty and under the directions of the older students we soon regained our sanity and from a confused rabble, changed to a more or less orderly mob. We at last knew where we were going, if not the reason. Then followed parties and entertainments for our benefit by the different organi- zations under the kind supervision of myriads of chaperons. We felt quite important until we found that these organizations merely wanted new members to carry on their work for them. What a cosmopolitan group we were! Native sons of Tennessee, men of the frozen wastes of Michigan, wild savages from the Floridian Jungles, and even foreigners from that far away island called Cuba. And what a versatile bunch came to light. Through the diligent efforts of Mrs. Hale, such talent as Jack Crawford, Robert Thomas, and Thelma Keyes, was brought out. Our actors, Fred Mitchell and Edith Lamons, were brought to the limelight in " Seeking Glory " and " On the Corner of the Campus. " Our athletes, " Cookie " and " Blondy " Costner, were discovered in the Junior-Senior basketball game. Our authors, Kay and Gastman, were discovered in Miss Johnson ' s English class. Armistice Day, our now nationally known Charles Perry, who was then a mere waiter at Petty, gained his first triumph in oratory, and later Coy AtwelPs ability to " bus " dishes came to light. Sports? Our boys challenged the Seniors to a football game, but they, wise guys, evaded the game on the plea of rain, cold, and vacation. Clever fellows, these Chinese. The Senior girls came back, however, and ours bowed to defeat in the basketball tilt. But what could be expected of our " freshies " against the 200 lb. " Pee Wee? " Then the Junior-Senior Banquet, the event of the season, the goal of the year. What a brilliant success! Well, Wes, I imagine and hope to see you at our twentieth class reunion. Sincerely, Le Ann P.S. — I forgot to tell you I ' m living next door to Mr. and Mrs. Howard McDaniels, Jr. Page 4 ds r, B- ' 2- -SS - NINETEEN THIRTY-ONE Speed The banquet was carried out on the ship motif. Guests entered the dining-room Everyone is in a hurry as he hurries about his work. On our campus we see examples of this speedy age. Students hurrying to and from clas s. Seniors stopping for a moment to discuss class pictures, the play, or the fact that the next year ' s Seniors can never come up to their standards. There is always so much to do between classes. One must run after a book, fill a date, see someone on important business. All this, of course, between classes. No other time will do. It is no uncommon sight to see both Juniors and Seniors running to a class to which they are already late. The Seniors more so than the Juniors. Perhaps they realize more fully the responsibility that a student has, and to which he must attend or perhaps they realize there is no next year to make up that subject. Anywav they run. When I say Juniors and Seniors I mean some of them. Others wouldn ' t run if their life depended on it. Of course these are mostly Juniors. As we think of the word speed, and of Juniors and Seniors, we think of the speed with which the Seniors are leaving us Juniors. Leaving us with responsi- bilities on our shoulders. Leaving us to fill the places they will vacate. Onlv a short time ago they were as we were when we first came here. Green and timid. Thev soon relieved us of that feeling by their friendly, helpful attitude. They passed through the stage which we are now in, and to their present positions which we will soon fill. All of it has been done with a swift burst of speed. Rush, rush, rush, all through school to get an education. Rush to get a job, rush to keep it, and last, when we are too old to rush, we may settle back and rest. When we die, we ' ll be rushed to our grave by train or motor car. There we can rest till judgment. But that ' s too far off. As it is: Seniors, we are glad to have you. We ' re proud of you. You have set a real standard for us to follow. But time is flying. Hurry, we are coming. Junior-Senior Banquet The crowning event in the schedule of Junior activities was the Junior-Senior Banquet which took place March second at the Robert E. Lee Hotel. The Juniors entertained the Seniors, the class sponsors, and other members of the faculty, and enjoyed it. On no other occasion has so much enthusiasm, loyalty and originality been manifested. The banquet as carried out on the ship motif. Guests entered the dining-room over a gang-plank, and shortly after all the guests had filed in, ship ' s gong was struck. The color scheme was green and white, the Senior class colors. The outstanding feature of decorations was a ship ' s wheel. Place cards were small green ships. The program was opened by the singing of " Gold and Blue " after which the Good Ship Gaiety was christened. Toasts carried the ship idea, " to the captain, " " to the chief mate, " etc. The Senior Class was likened to " Propellers, " and we saw far into the future by means of " Spy-glasses. " Not the least part of the program was the music which brought to light some- unusual talent among Junior Class members. Dinner music was furnished by our ever-ready Wesleyan Orchestra. The program closed with a toast to the future, un- chartered seas. All hands voted the evening a success. Pace 5 r ! THE JUNIOR ?iOCATULA A Word to Our Faculty Through the ages men have sung praises to men who have won wars, to those who have painted masterpieces, or written books, to those who have given their lives for a noble cause. But they have forgotten the other lives that live behind those famous ones, the lives that wielded influence over genius, and started it upward in its paths of glory. As far as fame goes the teacher has a small enough part, but in this business of molding lives he plays a mighty role. Nine months have we labored, studied, planned, played. — A few words of praise have fallen our way from our faculty and many of encouragement. We realize our year has not been as perfect as our dreams. But we ' re glad we have tried, sorry the time for even a brief rest has come. We know we could not even have achieved those dreams we have without the guidance of our faculty. So here ' s to our faculty, whose untiring effort and unfailing sympathy and interest have made Wcslcyan a happier place to be. We appreciate you! C+3 To Our Sponsor All of Life ' s successes, some one has said, arc the fruits of inspiration, or the incentive to untiring effort. When the class of ' 32 leaves behind its days of Juniordom to become an august group of Seniors, it will owe any measure of success it may have attained to the brilliant inspiration, the unceasing interest, the sacrifice and loyalty, the friendly leadership of its sponsor, Ailcen Templeton. Women ' s faults are many, Men hair only two, Everything they say And everything they do. Page 6 R fasGn 1331 21093 NINETEEN THIRTY-ONE JUNIOR WHO ' S WHO ROBERT ABERNATHY (Abner) CoPPERHILL, TENN.

The president won over his feminine opponent, Miss Blair Allen, a lormer school mate by only a few votes. Mr. Posey is a former governor of Tennessee. Miss Allen, who won nation wide fame last year by stuffing an umbrella down the throat of Senator John Crawford of Florida, when he opposed her on a bill, refused to comment on the election this morning. The president announces his intention of waging a nation wide campaign against crime and colleges. RITTER INSTALLS NEW FIRE ESCAPES Matron Juanita Grant, of Ritter recently had installed in Ritter, slides leading from the various rooms outside, to be used as fire escapes. Some doubt was entertained as to the advisability of the new plan. Yesterday afternoon the project was given its first trial. School was closed till Tuesday to allow the students to regain consciousness and other personal effects. The project is considered safe. WASTE BASKETS TO BE INSTALLED Mayor Knox Williams, who recently slipped on a banana peel on Main Street and sprained his ankle, is today supervising the installation of waste baskets at regular intervals along the main thoroughfares for the use of those who must dine in transit. Mr. Edsell Clark has been one of the main offenders. ROGERS-HOBACK NUPTIALS The union in marriage of Edna Rogers and Frank Hoback is one of the season ' s main events. Miss Rogers, an accomplished actress, and Mr. Hoback, a city traffic policeman are well known here and elsewhere. Their marriage was to have been celebrated in 1931, but the couple decided to give the most important years of their lives to their careers. SCREEN NEWS Mr. Fred Mitchell. and Miss Ruth Peacock who made their debut a number of years ago in " Seeking Glory " have abandoned their stage careers and gone on the screen. They will first appear in " The Pest. " Large crowds gathered to greet them as they stepped off the train this afternoon. PERSONALS Mr. Fred Puett, proprietor of a skunk ranch in Texas is visiting friends in the city and brought Miss Mary Jo Martin a fine black animal which Miss Martin expects to take to Paris with her and knock Europe cold. Mr. Howard McDaniels is also visiting friends during his wife ' s sojourn in Europe. THE BACHELORS CLUB There was an important meeting of the Bachelors Club this noon. A resolution was passed permitting Sam Provost to enter the straits of matrimony providing he pay a fine of $1000 to the club. Members present were Kenneth Magee, Earl A. Arp, Augustus Sharp, Coy Atwell, Robert Thomas, Charles Perry, and James Franks. ADVERTISEMENT— Rooms for Rent— Jewell Johnson.

W. RYMER SUMMER SESSION, JULY 10, 1931 Knowledge And Teaching E. MILLER Mater, the College. In our quarter of the world, where there are more college-trained people than in all the rest of the world combined, it is the leading characteristic of them that the needs of others must be served. The day when a general education was adequate has come definitely to an end. We now expect that all our training shall lead to some goal. Four out of every five are misfits in their first choice of vocations. This means a loss of energy and disheaitsning set-back in getting off to a good life start. As near as possible we now see that to whittle down this loss would be a worthy objective of the College. This is to be done by beforehand study of aptitudes, so that some of our to-date costly mistaken choices may be made on paper rather than in somebody ' s factory, office, or school room. By DEAN W. An education, or a fact — that is non-communicable is almost of no effect. The truly well stocked mind is per- fectly w ' illing to impart its treasures to others, because a normal person finds in the very act of sharing with another a firmer hold on the knowledge itself. It may be said that the act of learning is not quite complete until there be added unto it the effoi ' t of teaching another. We do not usually acquire knowledge either for the sake of the knowledge itself, or even for our own sakes; but rather for the sake of being of social service. This is the highest use of an education. He who is not commun- ity-minded is un-American, for every American rec- ognizes his tru!:teeship as to knowledge or skill. The greatest good to the greatest number is a cardinal principle with him. The former college student who is unwilling to " put out " for the common weal is no true child of his Alma College And The Future In the modern day amidst the hurry and bustle of our machine age it is little wonder that we fail to measure fully the value of a year at college. True to the American idea of measuring all things by dollars and cents we have begun to measure life in the same way. When idealism has been banished, when we have made our lives each day run as regularly as the machinery of this age — then we must be prepared for an age of utter ruin and sorrow to the human race. Because of the tendencies toward the development of such a race I therefore advocate the college as the saviour of all the ideals and high standards of the past. When a young man or woman enters an institution of learning which has high Christian ideals and high standards of living then they have begun to build a base for a future that can never be shaken. While in college one becomes acquainted with people who in later life may be of great assistance. They form acquaintances and friendships whose strong ties shall ne ' er be broken. There is no better way of going through a period of training that will be so thorough and yet at the same time const! uctive as that period of residence in a Chris- tian college. The college that trains its students best is that college or university that goes to make a well rounded and con- tented life. A life that does not live solely for monetarial gain or likewise measure life by the dollar mark — but lives for the pure joy of living and to help its fellow man. One must have a certain amount of beauty and contacts with nature, in order that one might have suc- cess to the greatest extent. The idealism or standards of womanhood must be upheld and man must retain the chivalry of a near forgotten age. The only way that beauty, idealism, chivalry and a true conception of the idea of life can be instilled into the new generation is through the efforts and contacts of the institutions of learning with the generations to be. For who can meas- ure the good that an institution of learning can do or how long and how far that the teachings of a single term may go. For as surely as the sands of the sea can- not be counted, neither can the value of a well trained man or woman be estimated. — Editor. PAGE THREE NOCATULA i9 ' iMiPl-l . ' -S?!| ' . |J President Sherrill Webb " Vice-President Kansas Largen What We Do When We Have Nothing To Do Every college is rated in some degree, not only in its course of study, but in its sport life as well. In the case of Tennessee Wesleyan we have a wide variety of sports and almost every one on the campus seems to take part in, and enjoy one special game. First, the most popular sport seems to be tennis. We have several " high lights " in this particular game. Among the outstanding stars are Gladys McDonald, J. C. Duck- worth, David Roderick and Hilda Peters. Miss Dehus, too, is seen quite often on the courts but the warmth of the last few days seems to have proven too much for her. We have, also, shuffle board. This game is popular with many of the less energetic people because it can be played in the shade and without much effort. It is inter- esting and e.xciting, nevertheless, and many students prefer it to any other game. During the ministerial school a handball court was made. The " preachers " enjoyed this game to the fullest and could be seen at all hours vieing with each other regardless of the heat. Croquet is another game enjoyed by the students. Although croquet is not as popular as tennis or shuffle board, it has its attraction and many prefer it to the other games. Some students take their " daily dozen " " socking " the croquet ball around. All in all, we think that our campus is above the aver- age in its sports and we feel sure that out of such activities will develop some new Bill Tildens. OUR SWIMMING PARTIES T. W. C. is unusually fortunate in being located near several good swimming pools — and believe me! we take advantage of this situation. Niota seems to be the most popular due, perhaps, to its nearness and to the convenience in going to it. Several afternoons out of each week a party of stu- dents, swimmers and otherwise, go out to Niota for a dip. Cleveland, too, is favored by the visits of Tennessee Wesleyan swimmers. We owe Dean Miller a vote of thanks for the interest he has taken in promoting these swimming parties and, too, for the effort he has put forth to make our school life as pleasant as possible. PAGE FOUR NO C ATULA In Desperation I ' ve tried all week to write a theme, But I can not, alas! My brain will not obey my will, So I ' m sure that I ' ll not pass. Miss Johnson says the commonplace — Just things we see each day — Will make a very lovely theme; But just which things, I pray? I tried to wi ' ite about my home, My happy childhood days, To me they ' re very interesting In many, many ways. But when I try to write it down. To make a nice, long theme, I find that it would only bore. Or make one want to scream. And then I thought I ' d copy one, I ' d find a book just full Of themes of every sort and kind — A funny stunt I ' d pull! But oh, a conscience is a thing With which one may not trifle; Than copy some one else ' s theme, A safe you ' d better rifle. And so I ' ll have to humbly say, " Dear teacher, please forgive; I ' ll write a nice long theme next tin As sure as I shall live. " — Fannie E. Blevins. June I dreamed of beauty. Of happiness . . . love. I longed for June, Romance . . . gaiety. June came — With its beauty — and — Brought flowers and sunshine To sad hearts. Brought soft breezes. Moonlight nights, Whispered words of love, Whippoorwills singing. And then — All gone away to Shadows beyond. Just a sweet memory, June. — Georgia Webb Say It With Songs When the weather ' s cold, " Turn on the heat. " When you have a date be " Lovable and Sweet.

Rymer Dr. E. Burns Martin The crowning events of the summer in the educational field were some very noted lectures delivered by Dr. E. Burns Martin, of Chattanooga. The first of the series was on modern Fiction followed by Browning and also on Job, the Biblical character. Several addresses were given on Shakespear, the sub- ject in which he excells. He held his audience spell bound throughout the great drama of King Lear, as though the drama itself was being presented. The last lecture was on Romeo and Juilet, the great love theme in which, of course, all school teachers were very interested. Dr. Sutherland Dr. Sutherland, of Knoxville, Tenn., delivered an ad- dress on " Concentration. " Dr. Sutherland is an expert psychologist and his thorough knowledge of the subject enabled him to make his address very effective. Miss Felton Miss Allie Lou Felton, representative of the Winston Book company, gave a talk on elementary reading and arithmetic. Miss Felton is a charming speaker and in her talk gave some information and advice which was very much worth while to the teachers as well as others. 21095 NO C ATUL A tiiMiriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii[iiiiiiiiiii!iiiiitii:iiiiitiii At Summer School J.

Although it numbers only ten, in diligence and wi.l to learn, it is the equal of any class of much larger number. It would be impossible to enumerate the many accomplishments of this talented department. We cou ' .d rave at length upon Mr. Johnson ' s sloppy outlines (according to Mr. Phillips) and his in- sistence on spelling the article " a " , " th-ing " ; of Miss Taylor with her tendency to write shorthand, backhand, and her fondness for dull pencils; of Miss Crow, whose motto is " Better Late Than Never, " and who seems con- stitutionally incapable of reading shorthand; of Mr. Powell with his belligerent nature and his use of unusual weapons, such as belts, notebooks and chairs; and to save the best for the last — Miss Stout, who makes 100 on tests without half trying, and attempts to calm the troubled waters of class fights with the oil of her peace- loving personality. To pass on to the Bookkeeping Department, Mrs. Brewer, of pony-riding proclivities, seems to be the only one with any ambition, and is rewarded for this ambi- tion by particular attention from Mr. Phillips, instructor. Each day, from Room 6 of the Old College Building, there comes the steady (?) click-click of the typewriters as the aspiring (and perspiring) members of the typing Department strive manfully to come up to Miss Spees ' standards of perfection. In addition to the Misses Taylor, Stout and Crow, of shorthand fame, this class consists of the Misses Miller and De Journette, and the Messrs. Ferrer and Walthall. Under the tutelage of such able and inspiring instruc- tors as Mr. Phillips (preferably Professor) and Miss Spees, the various departments expect to soar to vast heights in the business world.

Act like you were a football star who had to pay for a meal! " PAGE NINE NOCATULA Life Is What You Make It (The following theme was written by Mrs. Delia Legg, Athens, Tenn. Mrs. Legg has done excellent work in English 103 under the instruction of Miss Johnson). Happiness Versus Blues What a happy world this would be if everyone should seek for happiness and try to dispel the blues. It seems to be a law of nature that the blues drift our way, but that happiness must be sought for. One of the greatest promoters of the blues is self-pity. If we allow the mind to center on self, many obstacles begin automatically to appear. The ailments of self are more numerous and of a more serious nature than those of anyone else. The rheumatism is deeper seated and of longer duration, the tooth aches with a more severe pain, the head throbs more intensely, the corns are sorer, and the wounds are more painful than those of our fellow- men. If we could exchange places with them, we should often times find that we had made a poor trade. Others, apparently with very little effort, accomplish the almost impossible while we, trudging along, get Party Enjoyed By Summer School To convince the good people of Athens that the sum- mer school had begun in earnest, it was thought that a little lawn party would be the proper thing. It is needless to say that the " said party " was given and what a party. Every one talked at the same time, whether they had anything to talk about or not. The author of this epistle saw six women in a group. Thinking that it would be rather nice to give them a " break, " he walked over to the group. What was his embarrassment to find three conversations going on among the six women. All of them were talking at the same time and not a one was listening to the other. Of course he didn ' t have a chance. If it was not misleading one might term the social a get-together affair, but to be safe it would only be proper to say that it was an enjoyable occasion. Many a laugh was afforded by the folks who were playing dif- ferent games for no one was allowed to be idle, either young or old. For refreshment, ice cream was served, which was ideal because of the intense heat which prevailed. nothing done. Fortune seems to be their lot. Estates pile up in their hands, and bank accounts grow because they have worked while we have worried. The despondent person can find no one who proves to be a real friend. Just when an attempt is made to place a finger upon a friend he is no longer there but has vanished as the moments of the day. This in great part is a truth, for no one cherishes the companionship of a melancholy person. " Smile and the world smiles with you, weep and you weep alone. " To be happy one must be optimistic rather than pes- simistic. Always hope for the best, even if the worst does happen. No man ever digs in a copper mine with hopes of finding gold. If we are inclined to look on the dark side of everything we may expect nothing more than to brood over something which never has and probably never will happen. Hence we should take the most hope- ful view of things and make our lives and also those of our associates happier. If we should all seek happiness, the blues would quickly flee and happiness would naturally drift our way. The trip to Parksville Lake was perhaps the most suc- cessful outing of the summer and was enjoyed by both faculty and students. Fifty brave souls risked both life and limb on this adventure which was undertaken in a nice, afternoon, July sun. A Sardine in a can had nothing on the thirty-five Wesleyanites after they had all boarded an open top Chevrolet truck. Talk about your school spirit. Yale would have been put to shame by our exhibition. We yelled and shouted and sang — even the beasts of the fields received their share of the " Hurrahs. " We were often answered by loud and lusty brays, which, however, didn ' t please us in the least. The high-lite of the trip was when someone forgot and left a little too much to drink in a jar in the truck. After everyone had drunk their fill what should happen but that the Dean should lose his hat. A discussion arose as to the contents of the jar from which we " had been drink- ing. After a careful analysis it was found that we had been drinking some bad lemonade. iiiiiiiiiiitniiiiii The editor of the Nocatula wishes to thank the staff and the student body for its liberal and unselfish assistance given in making this issue possible. Only through the splendid co-operation of all concerned was the summer edition made possible. — The Editor.
