The graduation styles in 1894 were different from those of today, and so was the face of the store building in which Rogers served the people of the Tennessee Valley long ago. Yes, graduating styles and store buildings change, but inside the graduates and inside this store, there remains a steadfast adherence to certain ideals and principles. Now, as in the past, these ageless ideals must remain in the hearts of students and business men in order to make secure the glorious future to which you are richly entitled. We pledge to you, the leaders of tomorrow, that our store will always be an institution of integrity, good will and highest ideals. Accept our warmest congratulations upon your worthy achievement.

Dibb Graves Hall DEGREES B.A. Florence State Teachers College is primarily a teachers college, but because this institution believes in broad cultural training as well as in professional competence, it offers a wide selection of four year courses leading to either the general liberal arts degree of B.A. or the more specialized professional and pre-professional de- gree of B.S. These degrees represent a satisfactory basis for graduate work in recognized graduate schools of the country. The campus, located on approximately the highest elevation in the city, affords a delightful setting for a college. A ten year expansion period, including an increased enrollment from 650 to approximately 1,200 and the erection of seven new buildings, has made this institution the third largest college in Alabama. Its faculty member- ship and its curriculum have been enlarged proportionately. In the Spring of 1949, a committee on athletics approved a football program to be started in the Fall of this year. The influence of this institution on the entire Tennessee Valley has greatly con- tributed to the prestige of the community " the cultural, center of North Alabama.
