NCLI RES SUBDOLE FACERE
A Word On The School's Tradition
Since its founding in 1870, Webb School has been moulding a set of traditions which make
it cherished by the alumni and respected by all. It is these traditions, linked with tireless effort
and interest, that have placed Webb among the South's leading prep schools. Webb itself has be-
come a tradition, made so by the students that have attended and contributed their part towards
Cf varying types and importance these traditions are felt in the very atmosphere of the school.
Many of them are tangible, every-day, commonplace things. Take for instance the reading of the
First Psalm of the opening day of school, the songs sung in chapel, the custom of outdoor studying,
trapping in the lower classes, those rare and much appreciated holidays, the contingency of which
causes the halls to vibrate with chords of "Revive Us Again", Monday school, night school, and
W.P.A., lectures on Sunday, chapel speeches by the students, the policy of intramural athletics and
the annual Thanksgiving Day football game, the Senior boards which bear each Senior's name, the
blooming of Spring, foretelling swimming, the baseball season, commencement, and the Bibles given
out at Graduation.
On the other hand, there are certain ideals and high standards of moral conduct for which
Webb School has stood. The honor system, established by "Sawney" Webb, has proved to be the
backbone of the School's tradition and without it the school would doubtless crumble. Webb has
always been recognized as an institution which produces in its graduates an indispensable sense of
honesty and fair play. The students respect hon or in every sense of the word. The school motto,
"Noli Res Subdole Facere" fdo nothing on the slyj is not just a group of words but a statement
with a dennite meaning. For this reason it is no wonder that lying, cheating, and stealing are
looked upon with the greatest contempt by Webb Students. From its founding, the student
Honor Committee has proved to be one of the in dispensables of the campus.
Ever since its beginning, Webb's prime purpose has been that of teaching a boy how to study
and apply himself to a given task. The preparation received here enables students to pursue any
branch of study they wish and equips them for any and all problems that life may present.
The lasting friendships cultivated here are in valuable in later life and a student is endowed with
standards of truth and honesty which will be precious to him always. It can truthfully be said
that no institution has established a better reputation for the forming of high standards and in-
dividual trustworthiness than has Webb School.
Webb has become a tradition in the education al field and has attained great heights as a pre-
paratory school for boys. May it ever remain thus.”
