Show me the scenes then held dear. Show me the ones I long to be near. Knowing that this will be the cry of every heart after leaving dear " ole T. C, " we seek in some way to satisfy this longing. It is only a few days at most that any of us have been privileged to remain at Tre- vecca. Nevertheless, these days have been filled with events that have gone to make us what we are today. When we are gone we will long for these familiar voices, we will long to see again the smiling faces of friends. The nearest we can satisfy that longing is by prepar- ing the I 926 Darda. + Sulfation ECAUSE we believe we have one of the best Col- lege presidents, one who loves us, one who believes in us enough to give us his time, his talent, his money, his all — and because we know him, because we trust him, be- cause we honor him, because we love him, we dedicate to Mr. John T.

During the past year 1 there were tunes when we were not there, evidently, for we could not see all the " whys " and " wherefores " of the deeds of the faculty. They maintained, behind their strongly fortified ramparts of textbooks, and stores of knowledge, that they were giving us the necessary matter for the beginning of such a tremendous adventure as this blowing wind into the sails of a newly built schooner, bound for Fortune Is land. Hut the tasks they assigned us were far too difficult for us to see the good oi them while we were at the job. Now, after the last exam is over and our grades are passably good we can look back on the year, as a pleasant memorj and even be grateful for such hard assignments as making a drill lesson of Miss Minor ' s book on " General Principles of Teaching Ele- mentary Subjects. " Emerson says, " We cannot live unworthy lives in the constant pres- ence of noble beings, who love us and who believe that we are at least endeavoring .after nobleness. " Probably this is w in we have done as well as we have. Like the kingdom of heaven and all other high and sacred things, the choicest sort of people only reveal the perfume of their rare essence to those who love them. This is true of teachers. They " mix in " with every experience we have encountered this year, they throw around places, hours, situations and occasions a special glamour of their ow n ; but though they make tolerable, the otherwise intolerable hours, we do not love them because they helped us here, or helped us there; or made us wiser, or made us better, we love them bcause they are what they are, are we are what we are.

The encouraging features maj be listed under the four following heads, an efficient President, freedom from debt, standardization and a well equipped faculty. We feel that the Board of Trustees could have made no better choice for President than Dr. A. O. Hendricks of Pasadena, California. He is not only equipped as an educational leader but he is a wonderful man of God who will be a leader also in the spiritual realm. A campaign has already begun under the leadership of Rev. II. II. Wise, to raise funds to relieve Trevecca of her debt. The greater part of the fifty thousand dollars has been pledged by the different districts of this school zone and there is a bright prospect for the remainder to be raised. Through the untiring effort of a few of our present faculty our high school is now recognized by the State as a standardized institution. The Junior College is rated and classified as a member of the Tennessee State College Association, and also a member of the American Associa- tion of Junior Colleges. This means much to the students who are here now, but will mean more to the students in the future. A school with a great president, without a debt and with all the ad- vantages of standardization, and recognition, would accomplish little without an efficient faculty. This is one of the encouraging features in the outlook for the new year. Our faculty are men and women of Christian character who have the broader vision of life and are interested in helping young men and women to secure a better education. Their qualification as educators compares favorably with any Junior College in the South. — Olixf Shelton. 13 oenior CI ass JOHN T. BENSON, JR. NASHVILLE, TEN ' N.

Parthenian Senior Class Poem The vista of the future opens like a winding road Which bends and turns until one step alone we see ; The past is all behind us, like an old worn tapestry Whose warp and woop are formed of ( olden threads of memory. The spot that is the brightest in this golden tapestry Is a spot t tat ' s called " Trevecca, " which is long and wide and deep, And throughout the rest its threads do swiftly run and reach To bind and tie together all the harvests that we reap. The world has need of t iose true souls who ' ll dare to live aright Il ' ho ' ll stand their ground and when the fight is hardest " carry on. " Who ' ll cheer and bravely keep a smile, when pain is hard to bear For joy will come to him w io strives until the goal is won. When has come the stillness and the dewness of the dark And birds have ceased their song and quietly gone to rest We ' ll leave to Old Trevecca the deeds we may have done And hope that she will say of us, " They did, I know, their best.

Parthenian 23 The Twenty-Sevens m Blunderland NCE upon a time there were thirty little green elves whose highest ambition was to make a journey through Blunderland. For twelve years they had looked forward to this journey and so in nineteen hundred and twenty-five thev set out. These little elves who had gathered from eight states, soon came to a large castle which was situated on Inglewood Lane. Now that they had really arrived at Blunder Castle they were very, very frightened ; nevertheless they gathered up their courage and climbed the steps which led to a large hall. There a wonderful sight met their eyes. Two passages led from this hall. In the first passage the walls were green, yes, solid green and the floors were rather rough. In the second passage the walls and floor were of solid white marble. At the end of this passage a bright light was shining. All these new wonders dazzled the little elves but they were determined to visit these passages. So they entered the throne room and they saw Genii Benson, the good King Snell, and the Countess Hurd. The good King Snell led the little elves to the passage with the green walls and the rough floor. How surprised they were! They had thought that everything would be so easy and now they had to begin in this foreboding passage. But the good King Snell told the little elves not to worry but to work. He told them that now they were " freshies " and that if they would work hard enough that some day they would be allowed to go through the marble passage and then they would be called twennie- sevens. So the little travelers had two ideals; first to please their king and second to be able to journey through the marble passage and out the massive door at the end. The way through the green passage was much rougher than it looked but at inter- vals there were smooth places. It was really a delightful passage in some parts. With unceasing energy they overcame many obstacles and every day gained a step in this passage of knowledge. Finally after much work and a little play twenty-five of the little elves arrived at the end of the passage. The other five were not faithful but for various reasons had to return to fairyland. What a joy these little elves witnessed on June the tenth for it was then they took their leave from Blunder Castle to spend three long delightful months in Fairyland. I oo, the ideal that they had striven for was then in view. They knew when they returned they would be able to travel through the marble passage — the passage that they so wanted to explore.

A special aim of the founder and of the present management of Trevecca College was and is to provide a careful theoretic and practical training in Bible study, theology, practi- cal methods and other necessary and helpful branches of study in prepara- tion for Christian work, both ministerial and lay. The church needs trained workers; not just graduates from some school, but persons espe- cially trained for church work and who know how to bring things to pass. While there is a certain amount of general education that the Christian worker should have in common with others, there is a special training not given in the general school and college that is absolutely nec- essary to successful Christian work. Trevecca Theological Seminary seeks a worthy scholarship in all of its grades, but it has more in mind the need of the church than world standards, the approval of God than the approval of worldly men. It seeks to provide an education suited to the capacity of the student and such as will fit him for successful work. 39 GRAMMAR SCHOOL PRIMARY 40 Grammar School Roll Wesley Kutch Lois Hardy Fked Brooks Edna Mai Harvey Clyde Bates Dan Hardy Robisie Bates William Harley Sidney Bates Robert Jones Ruth Brown Sarah Mason Kathryne Collier Beleta Meggs LaRue Corb William O ' Lee Lottie Mae Davis Erna Mai O ' Lee Morris Davis James E.

We praise the Lord for locating the school in this city with its many opportunities in prisons, hospitals, missions and other places of assembly which afford excellent fields for personal work, and again we thank God than the doors of the city are open to our students. We consider these opportunities for Christian work one of the greatest assets of Trevecca College. We have a number of consecrated young men and women with a real burden for a lost world who take advantage of these opportunities and who go, in the power of the Holy Spirit into this city and into other towns and win souls for the Master. The following is a brief report of some of the Christian work accomplished during this school year. Every Sunday morning a band of workers has gone to the work house, the city jail, and conducted religious services consisting of gospel songs, testi- monies, prayers, and messages from God ' s word. As a result one hundred twenty-one soids have been saved. On Sunday afternoons our workers have visited the hospitals. They have prayed with the sick, read the Rible to them and thirty-four soids have been led to Christ ami many lives brightened by these visits made in the name of the Lord and for His glory. Similar visits have been made to the jail, county poor farm, the Old Soldiers ' Home. This year from the reports of the workers two hundred forty-one souls have been saved. Thus Trevecca is doing a work in soul-winning that no other school in the Athens of the South is accomplishing. Only Eternity will reveal the good that has been done through the Christian Workers ' Department of Trevecca College. To God be all the glory. 47 4 8 p D A R D A 19 2 6 Parthenian Literary Society Officers C. B. Smith President Lois Hammond Vice-President Gladys Walker Secretary Members H. H.

To begin with the annual staff had created quite an air of mystery on the campus and around the buildings before the contest started. Neatly printed signs were placed in the chapel foretelling that some- thing big was coming. The student body had been kept in darkness until the very day the curtain was raised. The signs were of such nature as to create curiosity and mys- tery — and they had the desired effect. For days before the contest the students were all asking the question, " What ' s up? " But nobody knew. Finally the veil of mystery was raised. On Monday morning the battle began in chapel mid much speech making and hand clapping. The Blues and Reds were off. Mr. Roy Brown, assisted by Miss Elizabeth Roby and Miss Jessie Mai Cashdollar headed the Reds. Miss Robbie Lee Leggett with Mr. Earl Vennum, and Mr. Homer Austin headed the Blues. Much enthusiasm as well as clean cut competition was dis- played. Nobody knew which side was ahead in securing subscriptions for the Darda until the last day of the contest. Each side had their songs and yells. Signs printed in red and blue were displayed over the campus. My what a time. There were no slackers and no neutrals. Everybody, both faculty and students were compelled to take sides. Prof. Strickland tried bravely to straddle the fence, by wearing both a blue and a red badge. But mid heated cries and much clamoring the student body demanded that he take sides with one or " t ' other. " It was then that the Professor climbed down off the fence on the Blue territory. The day came at last. The teams had worked hard. The suspense had been great. Who was the winner? The race had been closely contested. But the Blues had managed to get the lead in the last " innings, " they had secured 124 subscriptions. The Reds were close behind with 1 18 subscriptions. 55 IS DARDA 19 2 6 a As We Know Them Prettiest Girl Elizabeth Roby Handsomest Boy C _ B- Smith Best .Ill-Round Girl Lois Hammond Best Ail-Round Boy Earl Vennum Most Likeable Girl Vashti Burnett Most Likeable Hoy ....

The sun hung lazily in the West, bidding a reluctant goodnight to the water lily that swayed slowly on the bosom of the lake. The water lily did not notice the sun for she was dissatisfied. Her delicate pink petals were as beautiful as ever, and her long stem as lithe and graceful as that of any other water lily, but she was tired of the narrow boundaries of the little lake and she looked with longing at the full moon which rested lightly on the tree tops. All the little fairies heard the low murmur of the lily and came tripping from their pearl palaces at the bottom of the lake. These fairies are the most beautiful ones in the world for the water makes their hair as soft and fine as a zephyr and their faces as pinky-white as a peach-blossom. They all gathered in one spot and gazed up at the water lily- " What is she saying? " softly asked Amethyst, the king ' s daughter, whose eyes were like the jewel that we know. " Listen, she is saying ' Lonely — lonely moon — take me away — let me live with you. Moon dear, warm me with your loving yellow heart. ' She ' s lonely — she wants to go away, because she does not see us. " These words were spoken by Sapphire the queen. Bloodstone, the king, said, sadly, " I suppose we must send her. Her eyes must be opened by herself alone. " A bevy of fairies drifted to the water lily and began to clip the blossom from the stem. The lily felt that she was loose and then saw that she was rising upward and upward. All the fairies in the lake blew their breath beneath the water lily and sent her towards the moon. The moon shed its rays upon the earth and saw the water lily coming upward along one silvery path. When the flower reached the moon she wandered through the beautiful gardens anil over the tall mountains of the moon. In one lovely garden she stopped and spoke to a snow-white butterfly, " Are there no children in the moon who will admire me? I love little children. " " There are no children in the moon, dear water lily. But there are many on earth did you not see them? " " No, where were they? " asked the water lily. " The little fairy children that live in the bottom of your blue lake, came to see you every day and kissed your petals with their soft lips. They are sorry you have gone away, " replied the butterfly. " Oh, beautiful butterfly, tell me how I can go back again. Perhaps I never can. Oh, why did I ever leave? " " 1 know a way to send you back. Just stay here in the garden and I will soon return. " 58 D ARDA 19 2 6 The water lily sat and waited. Then she saw a great cloud of butterflies, millions of them. Some were pure white, some gorgeously colored, more beautiful than the jewels which adorn the diadem of a king. Then a wonderful and beautiful tiling happened. Every butterfly began to move its wings, slowly at first, and in perfect rhythm. Then faster and faster, until the flower from the little lake was sent drifting away. All the people on the earth saw the moon that night and said to each other, " Did you ever see the moon so bright? It twinkles like the stars — it scintillates. " They did not know, but the fairies knew that it was the moon butterflies wafting the water lily back to earth. They grew tired, but did not stop until the water lily was again in her lake home. When the fairies saw their flower they were overjoyed and rushed to welcome her. " 1 wonder if she will know us now? I want to kiss her, " said Amethyst. The fairies went through the water silently, and gently tied the water lily back on its long stem. Then some crept to her and said, " Do you see us beautiful flower? " " Dear little fairy children, I am so happy. I see you now because I am not looking at the moon. I love the moon but I love you best. Kiss me. " Some floated up to her and kissed the pink petals and the others climbed upon them and looked down into the water lily ' s heart. The breeze ruffled the pi acid blue water only slightly. The moon drifted away as the dawn came , saying " good-morning " to the water lily that swayed slowly on the bosom of the lake. Ren a Kennard. 59 DARDA 19 2 6 Higk Points of 1925-26 HE first event of importance after Registration Day, September 22, was the District Assembly held at hirst Church, September 29-October 4. It was largely attended by the student body and helped them to become acquainted witn each other and the delegates from all over the district. For two weeks following Assembly, Dr. A. O. Hendricks conducted a revival at Trevecca and almost every student was saved. Throughout the year the boys and girls have had an oppor- tunity to participate in the revivals held at the various churches in the city: namely, Brother Frost at Grace Church, Brother Weaver at North Nashville Church, and Brother Watson at West Nashville Church. On November 11, Armistice Day, a patriotic program was given and Nov- ember 13, Trevecca celebrated Founders Day. In the morning a program was ren- dered by those who took part in Trevecca ' s early history and in the afternoon Brother McCIurkan ' s grave was visited and flowers placed there by the school. At Christmas and on all national holidays excellent and interesting programs were prepared by the students. The Senior College class considered it fitting that the school should have an Annual and presented the idea to the members of the faculty and to the other students. Then, to call forth interest and hard work the school was divided into two sections, the " Reds " and the " Blues, " each side striving to get the majority of sub- scriptions for the forthcoming annual. Much enthusiasm was manifested and many sections of the country, as well as different parts of Nashville, heard of the " Blues " and the " Reds. " When the contest ended, the " Blues " winning, it was found that 242 sub- scriptions had been secured. January 22, a play was given by the Octavian Literary Society, to help finance the publishing of the school annual. The influence of the Fine Arts Department has been greatly felt in the Nashville churches, and in the towns around Nashville. Splendid programs were presented at Springfield, Greenbrier, Gordonsville, Franklin, and others, in the interest of the College. February 2, the Southeastern Christian Workers ' Institute convened at Trevecca and filled a large place in the year ' s events. The privilege was given of hearing Dr. and Mrs. Ellyson, of Kansas City; Rev. C. J. Frost, Jasper, Alabama; Rev. W. M. Tidwell, Chattanooga, Tennessee ; Rev. H. H. Wise, Nashville; Rev. R. H. M. Wat- son, Meridian, Miss., and other consecrated preachers. In addition to these men and women the faculty arranged that others of note should speak.

Benson, speaking a gainst " Evo- lution " ; Mr. Ross, a lawyer of the city; Mr. P. L. Harned, Commissioner of Educa- 60 DARD A 19 2 6 tion ; and Rev. Jos. Jamison, of Oklahoma. The students also took advantage of the opportunity given them to attend the Missionary Convention held at First Church, April f - ). The musical education of Trevecca was advanced by keeping National Music Week, May 2-f), and hearing the concerts given at the Ryman Auditorium, Paderewski, ( Jalli- Curci, and Martinelli. The students were recipients of complimentary tickets from Ward-Belmont College to the last named concert.

ROUTE, Editor PUBLISHED ONCE (Under Difficulty) PRICE— LESS Observation of Utiles Mrs. McClurkan believes it will help her subjects to a more lucid understanding of the dormitory rules to reprint this article on observation of rules. It recently appeared in this publication. 1. The girls are requested to crack jokes in the serving room. Mrs. Redford will graciously ap- plaud in the background. 2. Mrs. McClurkan dots not ob- ject to certain foods being re- moved from the dining room, pro- vided the foods are hidden from the possible view of other girls. For instance, such delicacies as spinach, spaghetti, and sauerkraut might be carried out in the pock- et. :i. Mrs. McClurkan also urges that the girls evince happiness during meals by prolonged gig- gling and frequent shouting. It gives one such a " homey " feeling. 4. A part of every Saturday should be spent in mending your wardrobe and oilier college furni- ture. A l!it of Traditional History For a brief interval the old fiy walked rapidly in a circle upon the Paid cranium of Mr. Wilker- son. Then pausing, he stroked his stomach meditatively and said, " There is a tradition in our fam- ily, my children, that ages ago this barren plain was covered with a dense forest. " Prof. Hurd (to a class in Eco- nomics having finished recitation early): " You may go now if you will promise to be quiet and not wake Mr. Snell ' s class in Psychol- ogy across the hall.

We started out to accomplish lots of tilings, but the time is never long enough to do all I In ' tilings we plan — work piles up. unexpected things happen, and before we realize it the time is gone. We feel that the time has been well spent, and some good has been done. The teach- ers have gotten much valuable in- formation from the papers we handed in, as well as from intel- ligent answers in class. They are wiser than they were nine months ago, and they have Trevecca stu- dents to thank for a great deal of then wisdom. In fact, It is ru- mored that Prof. Snell is expect- ing to publish a book entitled, " Extracts from Examination Pa- pers. " This he believes will have a great sale. At the last meeting Of the Board of Trustees it was decided to broaden the curriculum. This was brought about from several causes. In the first place, ath- letics of the violent sort, such as tennis, basketball, etc., were deemed too dangerous for dainty little boys and girls, so something had to be substituted in their stead. Therefore, the following courses will be offered next year. Every one of the subjects will be treated in a new and advanced style. 1. The Technique of Crocheting — Miss Kate Reese, Instructor. 2. The Elements of Knitting, with Drills in Essentials — Jessie Basf ord. 3. Croquet, and How She is Played — Prof. Strickland. 4. Marbles — Dean Snell. Rubye S. : " Do you think Rous- seau was right about his social compact theory? " Lucile I ' .: " I don ' t see how us girls eoul dget along without them. " C. B. (talking seriously to his roommate): " What do you think counts most in the world? " Brown: " Well, there ' s the add- ing machine. " HOOKS ()!« ' THE YEA 11 " Acquittal, " by Claudyne Wat- son, is an interesting and well- written book, and it is probablj my fault that I closed it without being certain whether- the heroine did or did trot murder her hus- band. The author handled this subject so subtly that perhaps tins uncertainty nt mind was exactly the state iir whic h she wished to leave her- readers. " Acquittal " tells what happened to a brilliant woman alter the jury let her- off. The heroine has a beautiful apart- ment, wears attractive mourning, and has a cousin who is a poet, all of winch should be acceptable. " The Seniors, " by C. B. Smith, lrr this comedy many of the laughs are either strained or to- tally non-existant. The sureness, the consistency that lias marked all the Smith comedies is not strikingly apparent in this book. " The Coming of Azalee, " by Roy Shehi. Occasionally one may trrnl a book that is so utterly ab- surd as to be unaccountably en- tertaining, i h such doubtful c haracter is the " Coming of Aza- lee, " in which wild melodrama and wilder nonsense stride hand in hand across the pages. " The Man the Women Loved, " by Beverlj Vcnnum. This excit- ing tab ' of tangled loves is a per- sonal experience of the author, whom women loved not wisely, but too well. " Mated. " by Earl Vcnnum, a love story developed against a background of modern college lite. " The Pony Express, " by Ches- ter Wilkerson. Mr. Wilkerson has done what he could with the mud- dy material at his disposal. Tin result is a story with main- stir- ring scenes of the Old West, hut with none of the superb simplic- ity that dignifies anil distinguishes his other- works, such as " Care and Preservation of the Hair. " " The- .Mind of tin President, " by Jerry Hatcher. A self revelation of the president ' s mind, arranged by one who knows all tin digni- taries. " The Confessions of An Orator, " by Homer Arrstitr. An entertain- ing, unconventional book about the best orations, by an orator who is still expectant. " Women, " by Evans Burnett. " No man. " said Miss Kat - Reese, of this book, " has a right to know that much about women. " 3 THE TREVECCA WEEKLY Editor of the Annual Has Peculiar Experience John T. called at the oflice of a specialist and asked I " see him. " Have you an appointment? " asked the nurse.

" " But I don ' t want to take my clothes off, " insisted young John. " Well, if you want to see tin doctor you will have to. " " All right, il l have to. I will, " replied the applicant. Ten minutes later he was in the presence ol the specialist. " Well, young man. what seems to he your trouble? " asked tie doctor.
