Rogers, who has been such a help to the annual staff, and to the student body in general, this 1954 Nocatula is dedicated. He has been an inspiration to all of us. His sense of humor, high ideals, academic achievement and deep religious morals will be a guid- ing light to us in years to come. May he have many more useful, happy years here on the campus of Ten- nessee Wesleyan College. Zke PRESIDENT ONE man primarily responsible for the recent advancement of Tennessee Wesleyan College to its present position is President LeRoy A. Martin. His calm assurance and perseverance have provided the necessary cliallenge; his warm friendliness and cheer- ful disposition have made many new friends for the College; his administrative ability and organizational technique have created an efficient and cohesive educational unit; his concern for the students has brought in re- turn their own deep respect and understand- ing; but above all his vision and personal Zeal have brought within the realm of pos- sibility a new era for Tennessee Wesleyan The debt the College and each student owes our President can never be repaid; but tiiis note of recognition can at least let him know tiiat his efforts have not gone unnoticed or unappreciated.

Publicity Manager and Technical Director For its forty members and director, Jack Hoiits, the Tennessee Wesleyan College ChoT lias been the source of many hours of fun, hard work, and spiritual inspiration. This has been true in years past, and will undoubtedly hold true for years to come as long as its members continue to keep the fine spirit of teamwork now displayed. Under the leadership of its director this organization has brought religious inspiration to congregations not only throughout the Hols- ton Conference, but in Georgia, Virginia, and Florida. In past seasons it has appeared on television in Atlanta, assisted in a beautfiul rendition of the " Messiah " , and presented its own successful production of the musical come- dies, " Red Mill, " " Desert Song, " " Rose Marie, " !■— ■— ■— ■a»»iB»» ' Top Right Center, reading clockwise: Anne Hutcheson, Man Ellen Warner, Frances Trew, Margaret Ogle, Patsy McAfee.

In addition to the more serious side is a lighter one which brings memories of fast friends made, laughter, tears, hard work, fel- lowship, and a lasting feeling of satisfaction. Then there is that inexplicable something which causes a suspicious glistening in our eyes when we recall how much the choir, its members, and its leaders have meant to each of us.

LIFE SERVICE VOLUNTEERS The Life Service Volunteers is composed of students who have decided to enter some type of professional service in the Christian church. Some students are planning to enter the ministry, others are planning to become directors of religious education or to serve in the mission field, or to become teachers of religion in church-related colleges. The organization meets twice monthly to consider preparation required for work in one of these fields, to study the opportunities and responsibilities of the Christian church in society today and for the purpose of fellowship. Members of the faculty, under the leadership of Professor Myers, co-operate with the Life Service Volunteers in carrying out a program which consists of devotional meetings, forums conducted by guest speakers, and social life which includes Christmas party at the home of Professor and Mrs. Myers and an annual social evening in the home of the President of the College.

RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES COMMITTEE The Religious Activities Committee at Tennessee Wesleyan College is the coordinat- ing organization for the three societies concerned with Christian living, and for any movement which has to do with the general religious welfare of the student body. Those three societies are the Student Christian Association, the Life Service Volunteers, and the Wesleyan Fellowship. The general movements include " Religion in Life Week, " " Brotherhood Week, " and an annual campaign to raise funds for some worthy charitable organization, the bringing of outstanding religious leaders to the campus for a day ' s visit or for at chapel address, and any other event of a religious nature that involves the entire student body. The personnel of this committee consists of the presidents and vice-presidents of the three religious organizations just mentioned, plus three or four members of the Faculty, The committee holds regular monthly meetings, with additional called meetings if necessary. It has an annual budget to finance the activities stated above, and also the budget provides for the expenses of delegations to Holston Conference, State, and National Conferences, and for sending out deputation teams and individual leaders for church and inter-campus Christian service. The committee functions also to prevent overlapping and to schedule activities for campus religious groups. First Row: John A. Emory, Paul Watkins.

It trys to plan its programs around stu- dent problems, and to give guidance and courage to each of its members. It not only helps its students but tries to be of assistance to the people of Athens. It has, at least once a year, a project that benefits the general public. The officers are chosen in their junior year for service in the following year by their character and leadership. Under the leadership of its wonderful sponsors and officers, the S.C A. has done well in the past and will continue to go forward in the future.

Although life ' s path will separate many of uur brothers, our feeling of unity will exist forever. Mk. In I .fa 1 rick.

HONOR COUNCIL A recent innovation on the campus is the honor system which is governed by the honor council, a six member board which tries and punishes any offender. The four senior and two junior members are elected by the student body at the recommendation of the Stu- dent Council. After just two years of operation this new organization has taken its place among the most respected and active groups at Wesleyan.

STUDENT COUNCIL The student council which is an elected body of the various classes and representative student groups is the clearing house of ad- ministrative relations between the faculty, the student body, and the administration. Through this group an effort is made to maintain a proper and effective working re- lationship in a democratic spirit among the groups concerned.
