Class History •SHE history of the College Senior Class of 1924 began in early September, U1921. At that time a number of young people, representing six different states, enrolle d in the College of Liberal Arts of Trevecca College. Others joined from year to year, while some dropped out from time to time. In May, 1924, there were three eligible for graduation. Each member of the class was moved by a powerful impulse to prepare for more efficient work as pastor, teacher, or missionary. The class first organized as a College Sophomore Class, October 31, 1921, with L. C. Parsons as president and Frank Dickey as vice-president. In the month of May, 1922, when Prof. A. L. Snell and A. L. Parrott, in black cap and gown, walked to the front of the tabernacle and were each presented with a Bachelor ' s degree, the Sophomores were filled with enthusiasm to be similarly honored. In September, 1922, the Junior Class organized with seven members. Mr. W. F. Wiggs was elected president and Mr. L. C. Parsons vice-president. On April 4, i )2}, a Junior-Senior banquet was a feature worth men tioning. A delicious menu was prepared and an interesting program was rendered after the dinner. Prof. A. L. Snell acted as faculty representative. In September, 1923, five young persons registered in the College Senior Class. These young people represented the states of Texas, Missouri, Michigan, and Penn- sylvania. The class called Dr. Riddell to give a lecture course from December 2d to 9th. On December 8th the class entertained Dr. Riddell at the home of Lyster A. Neal. The Senior Class organized February 22, with Mr. W. F. Wiggs as president, Mr. L. S. Huff, vice-president. No task assigned to the class was beneath its dignity nor above its ambition. With equal interest and zeal, these students mastered trigonometry and chemistry, pored over Greek, wrote faithfully all theses assigned, and mastered history and English. They made quick work of all these difficulties and were soon inquiring " What next? " Although some less ambitious students were dismayed when they faced psychology and logic, the College Seniors were not in the least disturbed nor was their progress stayed. They marched boldly on to victory and have finished their course in triumph. The faculty has been especially kind and considerate toward the class. With many surmises concerning the feelings, moods, and mental states of the graduates, the members of the Class of ' 24 participated in previous receptions given in honor of college seniors. They are convinced, however, that the reality far sur- passes all anticipation. Few classes have graduated from Trevecca with brighter prospects than does the Class of ' 24. The members of the class have before them a world of opportunities and possibilities. With their natural abilities and the training they have received, and with the help and power of an indwelling Holy Ghost, they should be able to accom- plish much for the kingdom of God and help humanity less fortunate than themselves. They are going to do it. 19
