A., Registrar Education MESSAGE TO THE SENIORS To The Members of the Class of 1937: A statement which I read recently was to the effect that we do not know what college spirit is and we never will know, adding, " In the markets of the world it isn ' t worth the cost of the price tag, but in the hearts of students and graduates it rates in terms of million-dollar libraries, scholar- chip funds, and thousand-mile trips to cheer the colors. " The statement edded further " You don ' t get college spirit. It gets you. " I dare say your experience at Tennessee Wesleyan covering the past two years gives you reason to comprehend the above statement. Two years ago the college was probably just another institution to you. Today it is an integral part of you, just as your family name, your nationality, and your church. How this change has been brought about you probably would have difficulty to explain, yet you recognize it. My hope is that the bene- fits that have come to you through this relationship will have increasing value through the years in helping you to cany out continuously the poet ' s injunction to " Build the more stately mansions, O, my Soul. " Our best wishes go with you as you advance to new undertakings, new opportunities and new responsibilities. Sincerely, JAMES. L. ROBB PRESIDENT. oc flTUrn = IE EC0NOniC5 FACULTY Tennessee Wesleyan is duly proud of its we ' .l-trained, versatile faculty presided over by diplomatic and resourcsful President J. L. Robb. It is large- ly through his efforts that the college has developed from a small strug- gling preparatory department into the fully accredited, well-organized junior college of today- Tennessee Wesleyan has been fortunate in securing the services of William F. Anderson, retired Bit hop of the Methodist Episcopal church, as instructor of Bible during the spring quarter. His classes in Old and New Testament, as well as his chapel lectures and informal advice have been a source of real help and inspiration to the students- Mrs Brubaker, who also holds the title of Dean of Women and Superin- tendent of Ritter Hall, has conducted a course in English composition during the Spring Quarter.

ADMINISTRATION BUILDING 18 mSHEPZ ORGflmzflTion FIVE CANDLES BURNING BRIGHTLY Into the hearts and lives of Tennessee Wesleyan students there shine the warm radiant rays of five candles burning in the spirit of Christian ideals. Those candles are known as the Y. W. C. A., the Y- M. C. A, the Christian Service Club, the Queen Esther Circle, and the Religious Council. During the past years, these candles have lighted the pathway of every student who belonged to Tennessee Wesleyan. Their glow has been felt in every activity whether scholastic, social or spiritual- And strange as it may seem, each one has grown taller, throwing its rich light forward and upward as the years have passed. With the beginning of this past year, warm beams of welcome reached out and drew new friends into their cir- cles. Then the intense flame of cooperative service burned into the hearts of our Christian young men and women until now we see the realization of aims and hopes of ' 36 and ' 37. Those who found a deep spiritual life seem- ingly beyond their reach have been drawn by their fellow students into the circle of candlelight which symbolizes the citizenry of Christ ' s Kingdom here on earth. Drawn into the light of these organizations, our students seek to carry away with them a single shining ray to guide them — onward and upward. The circle of ' 36- ' 37 is now broken by the parting of students whose work has been completed. Nevertheless, soft shadows remain to encourage others to carry the torch of duty faithfully and loyally. To those who await the com- ing year and those who will start anew, may your services of love and fellow- ship and duty to God, add to the brilliance of our candles- May each future year find them beckoning on the threshold of a Christian college and light- ing the halls of that college with the rays of love and service Five Candles Burning Brightly. 20.

Wesleyan is drawn very closely together. They are not only of an educational ad- vantage to the students but lend a social life as well. It would be difficult to determine the mo.it important of these organizations but one that is enjoyed by practically all the college is the Knighto-Philo Literary Society. This group meets each Saturday night in the attractive Liter- ary Hall and enjoy some very profitable programs. 1936 and 1937 was one of the most success- ful yeais the society has ever known. New officers were chosen at the beginning of each new quarter, and the management of the organization ran very smoothly under the capable leader- ship of the students. The new officers are: President Robert Dew Vice President Faye Smith Secretary Sue Ashley Critic Lenora Daugherty Treasurer Martin Luther Greer Sarg. at Arms Lawrence Eisenberg Cnaplain Rosa Jones Pianist Doris Cooper All students of a dramatic mind belong to the dramatic club known as the Tewesco Play- ers. The very capable Mrs. Harry T. Bums was sponsor of the club during the past year. Each meeting brought very interesting programs to the members. A very successful production of " The Nut Farm " was put on by this group and was presented several times in Athens and nearby towns. The officers of the Tewesco Players are: President Sue Dye Vice President Ruth Vaniman Sec. Treas Jerry Chambers However. Wesleyan ' s organizations are not confined merely to the campus, for a very im- portant group is the Off-Campus Club. This club is made up of all the off-campus students attending the college. They have their regular meetings and have sponsored several affairs dur- ing the year. Perhaps one of the most significant was the chapel program put on at Christmas tune. Much credit and honor should go to the sponsor. Mrs. Brubaker and to the officers: President Bernice Craig Vice President Virginia Bradford Sec. Treas Mary Ann Watkins A very successful band has been organised by Curtis Wagner and it has been very im- portant to Wesleyan all year. It has played for many various affairs both on and off the campus. Under the direction of Mr. Evins the Phi Rho Pi has gone forward in leaps and bounds during ' 36 and ' 37. At present each member of the debating class belongs to the National So- ciety. In March, Wesleyan ' s Phi Rho Pi Club was represented at ihe conference at Wing ' ate North Carolina, and all through the year its members have participated in debates with other colleges. The officers for the year: President Ed. Eldridge Vice President Claude Cupp Sec. Treas Theodore Wofford One of the foremost organizations on the Campus is the P. K. Club — iP. K. mean- ing Preacher ' s Kids) all sons and daughters ot ministers may belong to this Club and all min- isterial siudents may be honor members. Devotional services were held twice a month and a; various times socials were enjoyed. The club this year was one of the largest in several years as there were sixteen active members. The Rev.

The Bulldogs went through the entire season without experiencing defeat- In winning every game on their schedule the Methodists won their fifth consecutive Southeastern Junior Conference title and their first National Junior College Championship. Rated as the highlights of the season were the smashing victories over King College, who tied Wesleyan last year, and University of the South, the only team to defeat Wesleyan the previous year. Much credit for this successful season goes to the able coaching of Coach Mc- Cray and to the playing of both the line and the backfield. Co-captain " Wit " Eaves was the outstanding lineman in the Bulldog line. Spencer Robb, at end, also deserves much credit. Smashing Red McGee, fullback, and co-captain J. R. Hud- son at quarter were the main cogs in t he Wesleyan backfield- The entire team played great ball to give Wesleyan its only season without a defeat in the history of the school. 30 =SE ■■■ " - -m?vv 1 FOOTBALL RECORD Tennessee Wesleyan 12 Bristol College- 6 Tennesee Wesleyan 13 Georgia Military College Tennesee Wesleyan 31 Bluefield College Tennessee Wesleyan 19 Milligan College 6 Tennesee Wesleyan 19 University of the South 7 Tennessee Wesleyan 40 Maryville College 7 Tennessee Wesleyan 35 South Georgia State Tennessee Wesleyan 35 University of Chattanooga Frosh Tennessee Wesleyan 24 Hiwassee College 6 Tennessee Wesleyan 40 Wingate College r y nocflTyLfT -« BASKETBALL The Wesleyan basketball team of 1936-37 was one of the strongest Bulldog teams to ever takke the floor. The Metho .lists played some of the strongest teams in this part of the country and emerged with an enviable record. Their most praise- worthy accomplishment was their victory over the University of Chattanooga. De- spite the fact that Wesleyan is only a Ju nior college, the world champion Original Celtics chose her as their opponent for this section of Tennessee when making their annual tour of the South. The Wesleyan attack was built aroun d the four veterans of the squad, Bob Queener, floor-man de luxe, Raymond Huskey, the scoring ace, Blalock, the sharp- shooter, and Robb, the bulwark of defense. Huskey led the Wesleyan scoring with an average of almost 15 pbints per game Bob Queener had an average of almost 10 points per game and Captain Robb ' s average was slightly below that. Ram- r y, the only freshman on the team played bang-up ball all season and will form the nucleus for the Bulldog team for ' 37- ' 38- The entire t c am played great ball and gave Wesleyan a record she can be proud of. 38 ia-T nocnfIJLR3 g TENNIS TEAM GIRLS BASKETBALL TEAM £? 39.
