Dr. C. E. Hard T has been said that organizations and institutions decline after their founders have died. This is frequently true. Even gov- ernments have crumbled and fallen when once the force and personality of their leaders were felt no more. But it need not always be thus. God ' s message to Israel did not cease at the death of Elijah. There was the noble form of Elisha on which the mantle of the former prophet could rest. The perpetuity of any organization, government, or institution is determined by the mantle-bearers it holds in reserve. Greece might still be a great nation but for the fact that four of her strongest men could not keep the mantle of Alexander from falling to the ground. When our founder was taken from us, God was holding in reserve one whose shoulders were broad enough to receive his mantle and bear it forward. The sacred Scriptures would be incomplete if they furnished us the life of Elijah and failed to give u s the biography of Elisha. And so would the 1924 Darda be incomplete to pay a tribute to our founder without mentioning the Godly man on whom his mantle fell, Dr. C. E. Hardy, our beloved President. Between Brother McClurkan and this young physician there sprang up a rare and mysterious friendship which lasted until death called the founder home. As a result of this friendship Dr. Hardy caught the vision of God ' s plan for the school. Consequently when the rider of the pale horse summoned our first leader home, his mantle fell upon our present President. Our institution did not fall for the lack of a mantle-bearer. The spirit, the ideals, and the visions of our founder linger with us in the person of our own Dr. Hardy. Since the year that Dr. Hardy was elected to the presidency of the school, it has seen some of its darkest hours, but through them he has guided it to its greatest victories. Not only has the school grown in funds, students and buildings, but in vision. The present outlook for Trevecca is the brightest in its history. And this success is due to the uncompromising ideals, Christlike spirit, and unselfish motives of Dr. Hardy, who has at all times kept one object in view — the glory of God. 9

Colonel R. J. Kelly, Vice-President Colonel R. J. Kelly, Vice-President and Business Manager, is also head of the Department of Science and Mathematics. Colonel Kelly holds the B.S. degree from Ruskin-Cave College. His graduate work was done in such institutions as Peabody College and Chicago University. Beginning in the public schools of Mississippi when a mere lad, he climbed, step by step, to a place in the front ranks of school men. For years he was associated with Dr. R. E. Smith in the management of Ruskin-Cave College. Later he was officially connected with some of the leading Methodist schools in the South. He has filled practically every official position connected with a college. And last, but not least, he is entirely free from any taint of " higher criticism " or " evolution. " In marked contrast, his students are established and " built up in their most holy faith. " Under his wise management the financial condition of the college has been much improved. He seems to have the rare ability to make a small amount of money go a long way. 1 1 1
