THE 19 2 8 DARDA Trevecca Male Quartet A first-class Christian male quartette is one of the most important organizations in a school such as Trevecca College. The quartette which is pictured here has been organized only a short tune, and has become a great asset to the religious activities of our school. The young men have had considerable experience in such work, and count it a privilege to serve in this capacity. Mr. Gunn of Tennessee is the guitarist and booster, Mr. Henricks of California is the soloist and song-leader. Mr. Burnette of Louisiana is the all-round musician and soloist, and Mr. Pate of Kentucky is the reader and cornetist. These young men are talented and are qualified to give an appreciative program. Their services are constantly in demand among the local churches and organizations. The administration has made arrangements for tins quartette to tour the south- eastern educational zone throughout the coming year in the interest of Trevecca. The slogan of the boys is " BOOSTERS FOR A BIGGER AND BETTER TREVECCA. " 8

TREVECCA COLLEGE HISTORICAL Historical Sketch XN THE YEAR OF 1901 Trevecca College formally opened its doors to receive students. The school had for its objective the training of missionaries and Christian workers. Although 1901 is considered the date Trevecca was founded, when historical facts are examined, it is easy to see that ( iod had laid a great many foundation stones for the college prior to that. It reads almost like a drama — how ( rod dealt marvel- ously with Rev. J. (). McCIurkan, the founder of Trevecca, and also in the lives of his associates. The school was not the re- sult of some great mo- mentary vision. On the contrary, for a period of more than a dozen years (iod had been leading this servant step by step toward the great work which lay before him, preparing him for it mentally and physically, and giving him an ever deepen- REV. J. O. MCCLURKAN ing insight into the needs of such an institution. His own experience as a youth on a Middle Tennessee farm was the first stone laid in the foundation of Trevecca College. Born and reared in a section which was far removed from any but a graded country school, he knew what it was to feel the call of God to preach, yet to have to overcome almost insurmountable ob- stacles to obtain the necessary education and training. I his gave him a broad sympathy for other young people in similar circumstances, and a great desire to help them. In the early nineties we find Brother Mc- CIurkan a young minister in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, in San Jose, Cal. His promotion in this de- nomination had come rapidly- Indeed, he was looked on with favor by the leaders in the church and con- sidered a fast coming man. God had been dealing with him. But while pastoring this church Dr. Carradine came to San Jose to preach the beautiful doctrine of heart pur- ity and perfect love — ■ needless to say, Broth- er McCIurkan, a god- ly man, saw the need in his own heart and sought a n d found sanctification. Imme- diately he began to preach full salvation to his church, and be- fore long a great many of his good parishioners had the " blessing. " His happiness was full and he preached with new zeal and force. It was a great blow to the young pastor a few months later to realize that his health was fail- ing, and to be told that he must give up his work and rest a year. His resignation was accepted with much sorrow by his devoted church mem- bers. It was tendered only temporarily, for he had no thought but that he would be back as
