Parker Bedingfield Supervisor During the past year, the college has operated a General Machine and Wood Shop up on the hill as a contribution to the war effort. It has complete and up-to-date equipment, the operation of which has served a dual purpose — one, the production of certain war materials such as bomb and rocket boxes, and metal utilities for the armed forces; two, to give practical training in machine shop operation to college students who have registered for this work. The college has acquired full ownership of the shops and tools and they are now operated by the college as a training department. Under the supervision of Mr. Parker Bedingfield, the vocational staff is laying plans for a greater program of education after the war, offering thorough and efficient train- ing to industrial workers and supervisors. Working with Mr. Bedingfield in the vocational education program are: Mrs. Benelle Barbee, bookkeeper; J. W. Fountain, War Production Engineer; F. C. Herrell, Sheet Metal Foreman; J. M. King, Machine Shop Foreman; and J. B. Stallings, Wood Shop Foreman. 13 SCENES t.,,, ,.

Dye SOPHOMORES Regardless of the fact that the sophomores are unusually small in number this year we feel that the quality fully compensates for the quantity. We have accom- plished many new experiences this year with fellow students, faculty members and numerous activities aside from our regular curriculum. Some of the boys who are seen here are now serving with the Armed Forces. Our best wishes are with every member of the sophomor class of 1945 in whatever they may undertake throughout their lives.

This is just a brief review of a freshman ' s school year calendar. There is more to it than meets the eye. But it ' s all so much fun — this cycle of one ' s first year in college. Remember those medical exams and gay, warm afternoons when we all went to town, those mid- night snacks and parties, that week that came three times a year when there was a " candle burning " and " brain shortage. " All of this belongs in the life of a freshman, and West Georgia freshmen are no exceptions.

We ' ve acquired more knowledge and experience; we ' ve worked hard, long, and regularly, but it ' s been exciting, too. During our freshman and sopho- more years we had worked with books, skills and drills, paving the way for an exciting junior year. This year we have learned by " doing, " as well as through books. , Let ' s take a brief backward glance at this year ' s activities: — painting, which seems a " must " for all Third Year groups; — dying curtains, which seems to have been a " Third Year Specialty " (especially " yellow " ones) ; — attending Seminors each Monday night, where we discussed problems of mutual interest, heard music recordings, and read poems and other literature; — reading and evaluating books of various types; — keeping diaries and records of our work; — doing practice teaching and interne teaching, where we really faced teachers ' problems and coped with them, getting most valuable experiences; — learning rural problems and ways of meeting them through community meetings and socials in which we took part; — putting new life into the old station wagon by covering and painting it (and thank goodness, it turned out swell in spite of our " skepticism! " ) ; — taking trips (especially the one to Parker Schools in Greenville, S. C, and to Clemson Col- lege ) ; — folk dancing each Wednesday night; — taking school census in the county; — giving screening and hearing tests in the county schools and keeping records of these, as well as giving the achievement tests in the various schools. Our future? With experience in these many activities, it ' s bound to be a " bright " future. We ' ll probably be found five years from now teaching in schools which will reflect our former training at W. G. C. There ' ll be socials, community meetings, cooperatives, and a combination of " book-learn- ing " and " activity " in our schools. We will always be anxious to know what W. G. C. Juniors of future years will be doing. ZZ JUNIORS AiLEEN Aiken RuBYE Ashe ROSALYN DiGBY CoRALiCE Fears Mildred Forbes Betty Jones . LaFayette, Ga. Blairsville, Ga. CarroUton, Ga. Hampton, Ga.

Marvin Acree, forward, and G. B. Wright, center, were the two veterans returning from last year. Ably assisting them this year were: Jack Dempsey, Vinson Estes, Dudley Crosson, and Herman Lanier, forwards; Eugene McWhorter, center, and Edward Johnson, Rudolph Murphy, Carl Stephens, and Howard Martin, guards. The boys administered defeats to the Sewell quintet and the Hubbard Pants Company, both of Bremen, and the Grantville Athletic Club, Grantville, dividing two games with Hubbard. West Georgia bowed twice to the Martha Berry College of Rome, a game being played at each college. With Murphy, Martin, and Stephens on the sidelines due to the army and results of the game with Hub- bard, the Blue and White five met the fighting Carrollton Redskins on the home court. The Redskins stepped out and won during the latter part of the game. Throughout the entire season excellent sportsmanship and co-operation were given. 55 nj. atMiie ti V o y B Sara Nell Barrett Louise Broadrick Vivian Doss Helen Dyer Charlotte Eckles Margaret Griffith Jennie Nixon Opal Rogers i - ( to right: Dyer, Nixjn.
