I. S. INGRAM, PRESIDENT OF WEST GEORGIA COLLEGE. THROUGH HIS UNTIRING EFFORTS HE HAS MADE WEST GEORGIA A TRULY OUTSTANDING JUNIOR COLLEGE. THE WELFARE OF THE SCHOOL IS CLOSE TO HIS HEART AND ITS PROGRESS IS A PERSONAL MATTER TO HIM. COURTEOUS AND KIND, HONEST AND SINCERE, HE MIGHT VERY APTLY BE CALLED AN ABLE LEADER OF THE NEW SOUTH. The able leadership of Mr. W. Fred Gunn, Dean of Administration, has helped make West Geor3ia Colle3e an outstanding school. Always eager and willing to serve. Dean Gunn has won the respect and ad- miration of students and colleagues alike. Students find him interested and anxious to help in any club or activity program they wish to discuss, hie is indeed a veritable bulwark of strength on which the school may rely. W. FRED GUNN, M.S. Dean of Administration Dr. D. F. Folger, Dean of Instruction, has done much to raise the standards of a school which has seen a phenomenal growth within the past few years. He has dis- charged with real interest and understand- ing the numerous responsibilities of his posi- tion. Taking a personal interest in all the students, Dr. Folger strives to see that they get the most that can be gotten while in school. D. F. FOLGER, Ph.D. Dean of Instruction MRS. MAUDE E.

All the property and equipment owned by the former N. Y. A. project has been leased from the government, and the Georgia State Department of Education is now providing funds through their V. E. N. D. program for operating the war production training program here. For its contribution to war effort, the college program is now producing bomb boxes. College students are allowed to register for part time work in the shops. In addition to this, the project is equipped with a Wood Shop, Aircraft Sheet Metal Shop, Machine Shop, Electric Welding Shop, Power Sewing Shop, and a general sheet metal shop. Such a program as this offers vast possibilities for the post-war world. A voca- tional trade school on a college level with college standards can be established, thus giving adequate and thorough training to instructors and supervisory workers for in- dustry. Plans for such a program are now being considered by the Georgia Board of Regents. W. Parker Bedingfield is supervisor of war production training with John W. Foun- tain as War Production Engineer; Mrs. S. P. Craven, Bookkeeper, J. B. Stallings, Wood Shop Instructor; James W. McNeely, Machine Shop Instructor; and James M. King and Thomas L. Boyd, Welding Instructors. 11 VOtiTIOiU EDUCATION FOR NATIONAL DEFENSE 12 ai ici . • • ' SOPHOMORES Left to risht; CLAUDIA WALTERS, Secretary-Treas- urer; ANNA FARISS, President; CORALICE FEARS, Vice-President. Even though the Fall Quarter began with few sophomores, there is no evidence that the beginning was bad, because the few sophomores seem to have had things pretty well in hand — well, as much as possible anyway. In a time of crisis such as the one we are passing through, the student has a big job to do. He must prepare him- self for this critical period and for the post-war world to follow. As a tired child lays away his toys at the end of a day — toys which have served well but are still unforgotten — we shall soon lay away many happy memories of our two years at West Georgia. Gee! But these have been short, and it seems in- credible that many of us will soon be stationed at points all over the globe. Many of those whose pictures you see here will be serving on foreign fronts, sacrificing much of their comfort and possibly even their lives for those freedoms which we believe to be God-granted and which men must preserve. These will be brave persons who love their country and fellow men; they are the ones to whom we shall owe our sincerest gratitude, but there will still be many others, just as brave, who will carry on here at home in the various essential jobs for which they are fitted, helping to build morale to back up the boys over there. God give them strength to exert themselves for the best. There are those who will carry on in their respective fields of education here and in higher institutions of learning. These deserve the utmost respect and every con- sideration from the rest of us, because they will be the truest foundation for the world we must have in that great tomorrow when the world is free of tyrants who try to dominate all races and bring them to slavery. We must never let such tyrants rule again, and our people who have the opportunity of training in schools to prepare themselves to meet the greater domestic and international problems are working to- ward this necessary objectives. 15 SOPHOMORES MARGARET BORDERS Carrollton, Geors ' ia Colle3e Choir. • .

On September 21st many new faces began to appear on the campus . . . Some of these had that intellectual look which invaribly comes with graduating from high school . . . Some appeared lost in their new surroundings — -shy, timid, puzzled. A few with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge were eager to begin classes . . . The Freshmen Class had arrived. The boys were outnumbered two to one — but not one complaint was heard from them. The first few weeks were tough ones for these new arrivals. The Freshmen — the chlorophyll of the campus — were taught what college life is . . . the hard way. They had to enter buildings and climb stairs backwards, bow down to the Sophs and shine shoes for them, and learn the Freshmen Creed. Then to top all of that came the Rat Parade. " Debs " and " playboys " donned their good looking clothes — all of them at once — and paraded to town where they entertained the Sophs with songs, dances, speeches, races and everything else imaginable. It is a far cry from those timid, green boys and girls who entered West Georgia last year to the confident, intelligent, progessive young men and women who now have behind them a year of outstanding work and progress. The future of the Freshmen looks bright . . . With all the brains and talent pos- sessed by this group, how could they be anything but successful! 23 FIRST ROW MARVIN AGREE . , ELIZABETH ALLEN .

FRESHMEfl[ 31 roun THIRD YEAR The third year students have really accomplished things this year " in a big way. ' Learning to be teachers has proved to be a great experience and fun for all of us. Of course we have had our ups and downs, but now we feel that we are ready to take our places among the already long lists of school teachers. At the beginning of each quarter we set up purposes, not only as t eachers in training, but also as professional assistants. And we feel that to a great extent these purposes have been accomplished, or at least a good beginning made. Among these things we have worked with are: — painting, washing windows, playground equipment, and general beautification of school buildings and grounds; — planning for and assisting in carnivals, festivals, and community fairs; — attending community meetings, helping with recreation, and writing community histories; — home nursing classes, health promotion in schools, making health posters, and as- sisting in health clinics; — making charts, maps, photographs, writing news article and radio skits, and doing dramatizations to tell the story of community education; — attending seminar, where we discussed real problems we face as teachers; — making trips to other schools and state departments of health and education; — " occasionally " we did do a " little " reading in addition to pr actice teaching, nature study, music, art, and interne teaching. As we look back at these things typical of our year, we find many wonderful memories attached to them. So as we give up the third year room to the .next third year students, we wish them a year equally successful. 33 MARY FLORENCE ARTHUR Mobile, Ala. - SUDIE AUTRY Plainville, Ga.
