FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR 3.293 Dear Boys and Girls: It is only a few days until Commencement and you will be going out from the schools. We miss the boys and girls who have been with us for so many years. Those who have their diplomas from Berry belong to us wherever they go. We have had a wonderful year in many ways and I do so appreciate your help in making this year a success. You have shown such a wonderful spirit about your work, and I want you to always think of Berry as your home and come back to see us when you can. K I am hoping to make our college course a four year course and enlist the aid of friends to develop it as I had originally planned. This is just to tell you how much I am thinking of you and how much I am looking forward to your representing the school wherever you go. We need your love and loyalty and we Want you to show what your Berry training has meant to you. With affectionate regards and with best wishes to each one of you, Faithfully yours, gp ,,.n.eees,,, N. ,lo - --o-.+ sg -:- ,il-u' - -1- 4- Q14 G. Leland Green, B. S., Pd. D. PRINCIPAL or of ..-2 Dear Members of the Graduating Classes: That your training at Berry may add a hundred fold to your success, to your usefulness, and to your happiness in life, is my earnest hope and prayer. I pray that during your stay with us, some deed or some word may have kindled in your soul a. living flame which shall send you forth into the world resolved to do your work in a thorough, noble, unselfish way. Always remember that the measure of your success in life will not be fame or wealth, but rather the contribution which you make to the comfort and help of your fellow men. "Give to the world the best you have And the best will come back to you." Most sincerely yours, G. LELAND GREEN 4- 'U- Q 4- . -F . g--,.....:-ie- I I 4- Q-R -:- -:- -:- -:- 39' S. Henry Cook, i A. B., A. M., Pd. D. DEAN .aw .x .1 My Dear Friends: Commencement again! and the time for you to go from the realm of Berry into other realms. "A glorious company, the flower of men, To serve as a model for the mighty world, A nd be the fair beginning of a time." Berry asks of you, as King Arthur pledged his knights of old: "To reverence the King, as if he were Their conscience, and their conscience as their King, To break the heathen and uphold the Christ, To ride abroad, redressing human wrongs, To speak no slander, no, nor listen to it, To honor his own word as if his God's, To lead sweet lives in purest chastity, To love one maiden only, cleave to her, And worship her by years of noble deeds, Until he won her, for indeed I know Of no more subtle master under heaven Than is the maiden passion for a maid, Not only to keep down the base in man, But teach high thought, and amiable words And courtliness, and desire of fame, And love of truth and all that makes a man." Sincerely yours, S. H. COOK ' .li-En gg -ci - -:- . -F gg dll 'C' 'C' - SF' gn Alice L. Wingo, A. M. DEAN J' J' J' Dear Girls and Boys: An annual letter to you seems much like a Valedictory -just the same thing over and over, yet at Berry there IS always something new and full of excitement. For the graduating class in our Junior College we feel this is no farewell time, as it is announced that another year of college work is to be offered, and we expect most of the class to remain with us. We are glad that some of our high school graduates of other years are returning for college. I have a letter from Jewel Tatum, 1923, saying that after teaching live years her desire for a college education has strengthened and deepened and she is coming back to Berry to enter college next fall. She will be working with us this summer. This is the thing for which Miss Berry planned in offering college work, and the return to Berry of "our own" always pleases her and encourages her to believe that the college will meet the need of our ambitious young people who cannot get college training unless they can work their way. Tilda McCain and Inez Love, 1929, are now working in order to enter college in the fall. We are happy to say that a large number of our Senior high school girls are planning to be in college next year. As the college group increases, it will be necessary for some each year to work during the spring term, others, during the fall term to get through their full course. Some will be graduated at Christmas time instead of at Commencement, but any girl who is really in earnest about getting a college education is willing to pay the price, which means patience and perser- verance. As I write this letter I see the workmen passing mv win- dow beginning the excavation for the new Girls' School dormitory. With this and the Mothers' Building in process of construction, the campus will be a busy place this summer. "Everybody works at Berry" and all the time. We want to work. for there is so much to do. How does Browning say it? "The little done. the undone vast." It is great inspiration to work at such a busy place and feel that we are helping to finish some of the "undone" things.

On Youth's dewy meadows Marsh and bog we find, But strong and wise our marshals, Great of heart and mindg Every mire they've sighted From their tower at dawng On their charts they've marked them.

It would be better to put it off until later, then we would have more time to think of the many truthful state- ments that we could make about the class. To characterize our class in a few words would not be possibleg in many words impracticable, but in short it is easy to see the class was well ref presented in all activities. Sopho- mores won all scholarships at the college offered for highest general averages in work and studies. Track and baseball found Sophomores there. WILLIAM LEROY WALLIN . .

Treasurer Agricultural Club IW5 In most all musical organizations our colors could be seen and in fact there was no club where we did not have a representive. No word has such an insignificient position in the life of the college student as that of 'retrospectionh But at the end of our Junior College work there comes a time of general survey of our college life in which many activities stand in bold relief against the colorful background of our campus career. It is a glorious thing for a man to so model his life that it not only gains the affections of his fellows but also fuses into his surroundings at least a trace of himself. In our own small way we have made an attempt toward this end. Red spots emphasize a picture. Clashing ideas and daring deeds em- Eige Twenty SILVER AND BLUE -MV war -- phasize a college career. But red spots do not make the picture, nor do wild, bold stakes of action consti- tute the college career. Moderately and wisely have we tried to choose the colors and actions that count for lasting manhood and Womanhood. PROPI-IECY Strange things happen to us some- times and mysterious gifts are apt to fall into our hands just when we least expect them. It has been given to me as the chosen one of this great and good peaple-the class of 1930, to dream strange dreams and see strange visions of the years to be. Now I shall tell you what has been revealed to me by the powers that be: As I looked into the land of the future, I could see moving among the dim shadows of the people yet to be, the familiar shapes of those beings who were once my classmates, now changed and transformed into citi- zens of the world outside-even as they had longed hoped so to be. I could see our Presidentg even as today--I could see him in all his dig- nity, and his words were heeded then just as we today of the class of 1930 have heeded and attended to them. His ambition has always led him on- ward unil he was even the governor of this, his very own native state. Now I see the door of his home open be- fore my vision and there I found Myrt-whose highest ambition in all worldly vocaions had been realized- the maker and keeper of a home. Ah! thirty or forty years hence I see a rich man-a banker-riding in his airplane, counting out his money and wearing his diamonds. Who is he? Garland Bagley. Next I see inside a classroom of college students. A very handsome professor is lecturing to the class. The students all look at him with ad- miration of the learning he has acquired. They call him Professor J. T. Bagwell. Now I see two happy wives making sunshine and music within their walls. I see them exchanging confi- dences over the fence, as to this or that domestic difficulty--and also seeing that even in marriage they could not be separated-the Smith Sisters. Just now I happen to find myself inside a large cathedral where a stately priest in his robes of dignity poured forth words of inspired in- struction. It was Akins, himself, who had entered the work of the church The next was a very touching sight. I felt almost like crying when I saw a fair lady in such deep grief. Surely it must be some lonely widow mourning her husband. But to my surprise it was only a fair bride weeping the loss of her pet poodle! The bride was no one except Mary- better known to us as "Skeezix". As I looked again I could see among the society circles of that far off distant time, those who were most fair to look upon. As I gazed at those bright and dazzling figures, I recognized two of them to be the rival beauties of our own class-Ellen Bell and Edith Jarrell. James Smith has become a famous doctor, owning his own hospital at which Clyde Reynolds is dietician. Wallace Moody has become one of Georgiafs great poets. His "Love Page Twenty-one SILVER AND BLUE I6-P VB! - -..- Lyrics" are wonderful and they have been translated into several lang- uages. This large building I now see is a convent. I especially was attracted by a fair lady walking about the building, I was told that she had been disappointed in some love affair and had become a nun. Her face was quite familiar to me but they called her "Sister Maria". After a few minutes looking at her I remembered Alda Jones. Now I was led into a beautiful auditorium in New York City! Here I heard music from the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra. I was sur- prised to find that Leroy Wallin was director. Just the day before, I had learned that Hillias Martin was playing in a jazz orchestra in New York also! I wondered if I would find any more of my old classmates in this city. Then I picked up a newspaper and in it noticed that Arthur Smith and Lonnie Helton had become rich over night, speculating in call loans. Now I find myself in a mission school in India. Here was Maude, di- recting this school of girls. She taught the girls how to weave and sew. I remembered how well she used to enjoy her work at Sunshine weaving cottage. Maude told me all about her work and I learned that she had become so interested in this work that she had never married. I soon found myself in a great in- stitution of Home Economics and here was Frances Lane. She was do- ing great work in this institution. I remembered that she was interested in home economics but I expected her to apply it in a home. The next thing I remember seeing was in a great music conservatory in Cincinnati, Ohio. Here I found Moss Hackett. She told me about the many honors she had won as a soprano so- loist. If she continues she will soon be one of America's greatest singers. Moss has many admirers but she seems to be more interested in her career than she is in men. From behind the greasy counter of a small fish stand I saw a very fa- miliar man shouting "Fish!" with all his might-this was Jordan. As I looked into the professional circles, in a large office among many men sat a prosperous lawyer. I re- membered the sturdy face of Sproull. The next is a dining' room scene! A group of well dressed men and women were seated at the table. I saw the charming hostess to be Ruth Hackett. After a short' teaching ca- reer she had married. She and her husband are living in Macon, Georgia, where he is editor of the Macon Tele- graph. Evelyn Wyatt has pursued her lit- erary course and at last she has land- ed a job-dusting busts in Westmin- ster Abbey. V On account of domestic failures Mabel Dobson has become secretary to Hudgins and through her effici- ency and capability, he has become the king of the cod liver oil industry! Suddenly I find myself in Italy. Here I visited the Candle Memorial to Caruso and close by we saw what we believed to be a second tower of Pisa but upon investigation I was told that the Einstein of 1950-none other than our own "Speedy" Mac- Knight--had devised a plan and the American republic had used it as 2.

Road and soul weary, I made prep- aration to return to my native state, but I decided to stop by "Gay Paree" for a short while. Here at Monte Carlo I am most delightfully enter- tained by the owner, Horace Sims, a very charming and discriminating host. Cn my way over I am encounter- ed by a prince who is an expert at bridge, and upon closer relationships I find him to be Ormond Ward who has reaped vast profits from his dia- mond mines. These are the things I have found most interesting to me and I hope that it may answer for you, as satis- factorily as it did for me, the all- important question, "What has be- come of the class of 1930?" WILL Mr. President, friends: '30 about to die salutes you! Contrary to the custom in such cases, and loath as are all members of my conservative profession to establish precedents only at the be- hest of my noble client, '30, have I called you toget'her, before her death to hear her will and to receive her gifts. I was persuaded to this action by the unusual circumstances of my client. I dread to tell you, but be calm: the doctor is here ready to re- vive all fainting ones. Here is my secret, keep it welll ,--ilNIl A consultation of doctors was cal- led together on Monday, April thirty- first-doctors never known to fail in their prognastication. They have an- nounced that on Tuesday, May sixth, '30 must die. Had I known what a commotion you would raise and how badly you would feel, the president, himself, could not have dragged this secret from me. My client wishes me to state that, owing to a lightness in the head, caused by a gradual swelling during the last two years, and a heaviness in the heart and other organs, caused by thoughts of part- ing and over-feasting, respectively, she may have been mistaken in her inventory, but such as she thinks she has she gives to you, praying that you may not believe that it is only because she cannot keep her goods that she is so generous. We, the class of 1930, being about to leave this sphere, in full possession of a sound mind, memory, and under- standing, do make and publish this, our last will and testament. And first we do direct that our funeral services shall be conducted by our friends and well-wishers, the faculty, only enjoining that the fune- ral be carried on with all the dignity and pomp our situation in the college scale has merited. As to such estate has pleased the fates and our own strong arms to give us, we do dispose of the same as follows: Item l We give and bequeath to our dear faculty restful nights and peaceful dreams. We promise them a rest from '30's petitions. No more will we be called upon to bend our Page Twenty-three SILVER AND BLUE . mia! VM --.- haughty knee to supplication, no more will they be pained to refuse. It has been hard to have our fondest wishes thwarted, it must have been hard for them to refuse so fair a pleader. They have done their duty and they have their reward. But oh! how much easier it would have been for them to say "yes", especi- ally to all basketball games and social occasions. Item II We give and bequeath to our best beloved and cherished sister, '31, all the wealth of love and beauty she may want. She seems to be able to get everything else unaided. The basketball and Field Day champion- ships are hers. May our mantle fall completely on her shoulders. We will waste no time in giving to one who seems very able to get. Item III We give to the present freshman class the following advice, the accept- ance of which will lead them to glory: copy '30, learn to work, if not t'o win: development comes sooner through bearing failures than suc- cesses. It isn't fun, but still, look at '30 and be cheerful. Item IV The subjoined list will be recogniz- ed as entailed estates, which we do declare the class of '31 the real and rightful successors: The Soph's seats in chapel to which as freshmen, '31 has not been un- known. May she be as fond of the front row next year as she has been this. Let all the members show their gratitude for this gift by being promptly at the head of the line each morning, ready to fight for that which is theirs, if it be as necessary as it has been for the Sophs this year. Item V Evelyn Wyatt wills and bequeath: to Pansy Hayes and Mildred Wil- liams her room on the east corner oi Catherine Hall, which she has occu- pied for two years, and has heard all the "good nights" of both students and faculty without purposely eaves- dropping. Item Vl Grace Smith wills to Augusta Henry her ability to memorize physics problems the night before ex- amination, providing she does not get caught burning "midnight oil". Item VII With a sad heart and many tears E. C. Jordan hands over the Emery basement keys to Dr. Cook in order to keep said basement locked and the pleasant odors from tantalizing the citizens of the dormitory. E. C. also wills his faithful old pipe to Gordon Green, if he will not use it in the presence of Wildcat' Collier. Item VIII Garland Bagley and Harwell Mal- lory do hereby bequeath unto Earl Walton and Harold Barbour their hit with Mrs. Davis, providing the latter keep "A" rooms. Item IX Ellen Bell with much regret gives to Jean Hayes her privilege of sitting at the feet of Miss Brewster, not to be taught in books, but knowing the said Miss Hayes will find out in time, she hesitates to explain in detail now. Item X Helen Boone wills to Ruth Johnson her hit with Mr. Mullins. To Sophie Bowman she Wills her originality, Page Twenty-four SILVER AND BLUE MM - IN provided Sophie will use it to a better advantage than she has. We do hereby constitute and ap- point Miss Dexter sole executor of our last will and testament on this, the sixth day of May, Anno Domini, one thousand, nine hundred and thirty, in the presence of the under- signed witnesses: Guthrie Spruill Mr. Mullins George Collier Bertha Boone ,1 POEM Our class has surely had some fun, As every sophomore class has done, But work must always follow play, As night must always follow day. Two years or more ago today, We turned our steps this happy way. New friendships formed and book- lore learned, For education our minds have yearned. We've labored, studied, and played hard too, But soon we'll start our work anew, For as you know from this very day We face the world in every way. Spring is here and summer's coming, Hand in hand with the flowery May. Buds are bursting, leaves are grow- ing, We are reaping, others are sowing. And as they sow along the way, The seed of human kindness, They are building lives that shine, --Shine with heavenly brightness. Explore the dark depts of the mind, And see what treasures there we find Stored up as diamonds in the rough, Germs that are made from solid stuff. Things that we hammer, melt, and mould, Into the very depts of the soul Where they take root and quickly grow, Like the seed that farmers sow. We have before our minds a goal, Though on some high and rugged knollg If we work that way with a good will, I'm sure we can climb the highest hill. We'll plant our Hag upon te top, And have for our motto "never stop," But keep on climbing every day, And never give up beside the way. Spring with hope, youth, and glad- ness Bears away our care and sadness, Tears that fade in sunny smiles, In nature's various turns and wiles. Joy in our hearts and joy outside, Joy spread on hill and country wideg Changes are slow but sure and staid, For all God's plans are truly laid. Life is short and trials are bitter, All is not gold that seems to glit- ter. Earthly joys and sensual lust, In the end become as dust. l9age TRHQTEVF SILVER AND BLUE tml Life is full of joy and sorrow, Work and hope for a bright to- morrow. Through the clouds the sun is shin- ins, In every cloud a silver lining. In our memories friends will be, Time can only help us to see, That you are dearer than we thought, That your friendship has meant a lot. For friends gone but always dear Memory sends her warmest tears! She sheds gladness o'er the past, Recalled by faded flowers that do not last. In the corridors of time, Voices gay as yours or mine, Sound like echos of the past, Would that they could only last. Before I Write the closing line, I'd like to say it just one time, I think the Sophomore class is fine. So I must close this simple rhyme. Here's to the "Dear Old Sophomore Class," The one we love so well, To every earnest lad and lass, Our story we will often tell. Here's to our "Dear Old Alma Mater." As swiftly the years roll byg We hope to all come back to thee Once more before we die. Here on this same old ground once more, We hope to all clasp hands, And pass our friendly greetings around, As in the days gone by. "M "7 -- -A- .LMW We love thy classrooms, and play- grounds, Our teachers everyoneg The bright and sunny skies above thee, The friends that we have won. And as the seasons come and go, Our thoughts will always be hereg We want you all to know Our Alma Mater still is dear. Friends and classmates, teachers too, We shall often think of you. Our cold words can never tell Our love, our thanks, our wishes well. We can but leave a parting tearg For those who've been to us so dear, And on our memories foremost line, Write names that will forever shine. Farewell! may the pleasures we en- joy today, Never be clouded along life's rug- ged way. It is certain that evil will give us a call, But may we have the courage to withstand it all. May our fidelity to principle be a light That will pierce the encircling night, May it mark the trail our Saviour trod, And lead us safely home to God. Knowledge doesn't amount to any- thingg it is achievement that is impor- tant.--Henry Ford. Expect no miracles-trust your common sense. Page Twenty-six SALUTATORY Miss Berry, Faculty, Students, and Friends, I deem it a signal honor to greet you, and in the name of all my classmates to pass on to you the glad hail of our enthusiastic welcome! We have reached t'he goal for which we have been striving for two long, yet seemingly short years. We must cast away our college privileges and pleasures only to hold them in our memories and take up the great- er burden that besets us as we leave the college so dear to us to venture into the great unknown. But as Browning assures us happy, "God's in His heaveng All's right with the world," and his optimism wakes a responsive chord in every heart. We are glad we have the assurance that the world-aye, every atom-moves on its course in perfect accordance with t'he plan of the Creator, and what- ever comes to us either of happiness or pain comes as an angle of the Lord to work His will, and play its part in the grand plan of human de- velopment. We are glad that noth- ing in the universe is too small to be seen by t'he protecting and con- trolling eye of the One who, as Pope so beautifully tells us, "Sees with equal eye, as God of all, A hero perish or a sparrow fall, Atoms or systems into ruin hurled, And now a bubble burst, and now a world." Many times in our lives have come when everything seemed dark and disheartening. We have learned the meaning of disappointment and sor- SILVER AND BLUE VM - ON row to some degree at least-from the human standpoint, thd have seen times when it was hard for us to feel perfectly sure that We could agree with Browning when he wrote the cheering words "All's right With the world." We must learn that it is necessary for us to bear our cross and undergo many disappointments to reach the perfection of character we all so earnestly desire to attain, and know that, "Behind a frowning providence, He hides a smiling face." It is grand to feel that we are a necessary part of the devine plan of creation-that God holds our desti- nies in the hallow of His hand, and shapes our paths according to His all-wise, all-powerful conception. When we grasp this great truth, we will understand how it is that no matter what' comes to us as indivi- duals, or as a class still while "God's in His heaven, All'5 right with the world." Yes, friends, "a1l's right with the world!" We who are about to take our places in the great arena of its progression, are glad to assure you so. "All's right with the world," and all's right with us as individuals. Our calling is a sacred one, what- ever it may be. Our path is a safe one wherever it may lead. And as we go forth to represent in the out- side world the school from which we pass we are going to ever strive to be true to its principles, aims, and ideals-for it is through them that all honor must reflect back upon the school seal we bear. As we look back over the past two years we can truthfully say we have done our best Page Twenty-seven SILVER AND BLUE VDD ,Y -M59 at all times to make the most of every opportunity that our dear foun- der made possible for us. And we trust that our dear teachers may ever find us faithful to those virtues for which they have trained us to stand as we face the problems of life. Our equipment is good, and our armor strong so we shall meet our to face never worldly battles face forgetting our Alma Mater. You ask us where and what we are going to do. Can we say? We may think we have our lives mapped out in a systematic form, but one breath of wind may change the whole shape of our plans and move us completely across the field of creation, to prove to us there is a we are going, "Divinity that shapes our ends, Rough-hew them how we will." But what does it matter where we may be led when we feel the assur- ance that we are doing our allotted part in the divine plang and that whatever we are called upon to do we will do our best ever striving to live up to Miss Berry's ideals for the betterment of self and thus humanity. lt is in this spirit we face the ex- ercises to-day. We have been led through pleasant paths to this bend of the road, here pause eager to take on the life that lies before us. We ask you, then, to join with us with gladsome hearts in the celebra- tion of this hour, and to feel within you the same optimistic conviction that "all's right with the world" as well as with us, as we speak from jojous, hopeful hearts the words of our most cordial and sincere welcome to one and all. VALEDICTO RY Here we pause to look back upon our past, not as one old, growing reminiscent, but as prudent youths at the threshhold of new tasks, who would reminding ourselves of service: recall pledges and at this turning in life, assume new duties we see that nothing is so inevitable in this world as the onward march of time and t'he succession of events. No certainty is quite so certain as that of change. In every realm of nature, in the sciences, in the material, in the in- tellectual and spiritual life of man- kind, any careful observer can per- ceive that the whole world is con- stantly moving forward to the unseen goal-perhaps the millennium, as many believe. Wit'hin this span of one human life, which is but a tiny fraction of the great expanse of time through the age, changes of broad human significance can be seen. Even we, who but a few short years ago were infants in arms, can discern vast changes in ourselves and in the world about us. That is life, moving slowly but surely and inevitable in accordance with the inscrutable scheme of things that guides and controls the destines of the universe. To us, on t'his day of days, this great truth strikes home with peculiar emphasis. That the faces which carry men forward to some inescapable climax cannot be gainsaid, is a fact which, today, stands out in our minds with startling vividness. Throughout the two years we have spent here we have been moving towards this moment. Our lives have Page Twenty-eight SILVER AND BLUE 'nil -,nv been ordered to conform to the plans and procedure organized by the dear founder of this institution and the teachers to prepare us as efficiently and as throughly as possible for our- citizenship and for life. We selves have had little to do in this and organized effort but to receive assimilate, as well as we could, the training given us. and im- Our elders of course knew appreciated the tremendeously portant part which our education would play in our later lives and planned for us accordingly. We- until recently at least-realized little cf the significance of the experience through which we were passing, and, to us, active participation in the world of affairs seemed indeed re- mote. Carefree, happy, enjoying life as it came, we passed through these de- lightful years, little recognizing that each day was bringing us nearer to the time of responsibility, the time of going forth to assume our share of life's burdens. Now that time is here! Through these years we have been changing, developing, and grad- ually shifting our relationships with the world about us. Now, over-night it seems, our whole status is changedg today, students under kindly, sym- pathetic guidance, tomorrow, work- ers in the hurly-burly of the work- aday world! Miss Berry. I esteem it among the rarest of my privileges to be permit- ted to address a few words to one so eminent as yourself in the life of service. If it be a joy to know that "Labors of love are not in vain," if it be a pleasure to know that "Seeds of kindness are bearing rich and abundant fruit," may that joy and that pleasure he yours in fullest portion. May you ever be able to look with feelings of heartfelt satis- faction upon all your efforts for the advancement of those who are en- rolled upon the register of your siaunch and noble institution. Dur- ing the years spent here each of us has received a nobler and a higher vision of life, and we will always cherish the sweet memories of the days we have spent here. We will ever strive to perform the things that you have established in our hearts and souls. We realize that it is your love and unceasing service that has laid the foundation for this hour and made it possible for us to assemble here to say farewell. To you, Dr. Green and members of the faculty, who with kind and loving patience have helped and guid- ed us so painstakingly to this very moment, we must say farewell-with hearts filled with gratitude and ap- preciation of all that you have done for us. Fellow-students of the undergrad- uate classes, to you we commend the interests we have hitherto cherished together, knowing that your enthusi- astic loyalty is no less than ours. We welcome you to the place which we are now vacating and we know that you will fill it worthily. Classmates-we come now to the end of the happy road we have trav- eled together for two long years. 'I'hroughout the journey down those years we have like true comrads shar- ed our joys and our sorrows, of dis- couragement there were someg of happy days together there were many. Would that we could go on together Page Twenty-nine SILVER AND BLUE wal down the long trail of life to the very end! But that we know can- not be. Each of us has his own task to perform, has his own niche to carve, his own service to render to the world. So, dear classmates, the time of parting is here. Each of us must go his separate way and work out, alone, his own destiny. Life is calling to each of us, the challenge of the world rings in our ears-and we must make answer! Classmates, to part thus we ex- perience a feeling' oi' sadness, after these two years spent so joyously together-and yet there is a conso- lation in the thought that, though life may lead us far apart and though the widths of oceans and continents lie between us, we may cherish in our hearts forevermore that unfor- getable comradship which is part of us. Then, too, there will be with us always the sweet and happy memor- ies of the glorious years spent to- gether at college. Absence and dis- tance will serve but to strengthen the bonds of friendship and comrade- ship between us. Time will add its glow to these bygone years, and in retrospect we shall live over and en- joy again the delightful days we have known together at college. With hearts saddened at parting and yet strengthened by the memor- ies and spirits of comradship that will be ours forever, we must bid each other farewell and Godspeed. And now, at last, to you, dear, old school, scene of our joys, our sor- rows, our triumphs, within whose sheltering walls we have spent so many happy hours, we must now say good-bye! What loving memories around you cling, what sweet associa- tions bind you in our hearts! Yes, dear old school, you shall be the symbol off our happiest years so long as life shall 'last-but now, farewell, farewell!

F. Williamson Johnnie Word Albert Wyatt SILVER AND BLUE W0 HISTORY On September 12, 1929 the gray eastern skies brightened, then grew red as the sun began its journey across the heavens. A mocking bird's early morning song floated on the night-cooled breeze. A promise of a beautiful day! But as the morning passed the sun's rays were no longer red nor even golden. Instead they appeared to be green. The pink- tinted clouds changed to green. In fact, everything on the campus seem- ed to give forth a green reflection. What could cause such a queer sight? It was nothing more than a group of "green" college freshmen. The largest group of college freshmen Berry had ever witnessed. They re- sembled a butterfly caught in the rain or a field mouse which had wan- dered from the meadow into the woods. There were about thirty from the high school class of '29, some from previous classes and others who had never attended Berry before. The green colors soon faded away and the gray clouds of homesickness became blue skies of friendship. At our first meeting we elected Tom Wheelis president, Sarah Miller vice president, Ben Sheram secretary and treasurer, Iris Roberts and James Lane cheer leaders, and Tom Meach- am and C. F. Williamson sargeants- at-arms. Freshmen who took part in athle- tics were Coatney Davis, Clarence Chamblee, Carson Hardy and Frank Moore in basketball, Asa Capps, Gus Jarrett, John Faison, Clarence Cham- blee, Denver Webb, and Herbert - -IOP Barr Varsity baseball, and Ernest Nunn, Robert Lane and Albert Nes- Nesbit, Glenn Jolley, Ben Sheram, Those who took part in music, were C.

The Girls' quartet was composed of four freshmen girls: Ruth Johnson, Lorraine Howe, Sarah Miller, and Nelle Fletcher. The year seemingly passed quick- ly. One year of our college life has been lived, enjoyed, and recorded. association we which, as all Through the close have found friends school fliends, will long be remem- bered. The two class parties, the class picnic and the first Freshmen- Sophomore party to be had at Berry marked a great part of our year's training as a well-rounded education cannot be obtained from books alone.

C. for the presidential inauguration of 1949 arrived there three days before the inaugural services, but just in time for the unveiling of the Doris Jones "Bronze Bust" of Commander Robert Shields, the discoverer of the Eastern Pole. The plane which had so laboriously thrust itself through the ethereal heavens carrying Com- mander Shields and his company to victory was equipped with a platinum propeller, which had been a gift to the famous aviator by the Lundy Thompson Platinum Corporation. At the conclusion of the unveil- ing program, we slowly plodded and rounded our way through the crowd, until we were in reach of the "one time insignificient Berry student that had put the child of destiny to shame." Of course, "Sifus" rec, ognized us and immediately inquired the whereabouts of our former class- mates. Just then a telegram was rushed to Mr. Shields stating that the president-elect, Mr Winifred Moore, Page Sixty-eight SILVER AND BLUE '-'Bl and his lovely wife, Miss Elena Step- hens were giving a luncheon at the Max Landrum Hotel in honor of the great discoverer. It so happened that we were invited to the luncheon also. President-elect Moore gave us a great surprise when he told us that practically his entire cabinet was of the world's best men and women- Berry men and women-and best of all from the class of '30, They were as follows: Lemuel Tankersley, Sec. of State, as all of us know that Mr. Tankersley was a fond admirer of fair sex, we were not surprised to find his home practically managed by the warm heart and generous words of Laura Newsome. Jesse Maxwell, Sec. of War, but it is doubtful will do much fighting as he is the husband of our ever cher- ished Myrteen Campbell. Felton Swilling, Sec. of Navy. Fel- ton is a bachelor since Mary Low- man, the world famous aviatrix, has never said the small, but ever so significant word "yes". Terrell Lowery, Sec. of Treasury. It is a comfort to know that "Ned" assisted by his competent wife, Lil- lian Bruce, will have charge of our country's finance. Clyde Blackstock, Sec. of Labor. Even though Clyde was said to be the laziest boy that ever attended Berry, he is to fill the office of sec. of Labor, and will comfortly provide for his wife, formerly Miss Ruth Frix. Sec. of Interior, John Coats. Tho- ugh John says that most of his work is of exterior variety, he will not refuse the place. Lawrence Barnett, Sec. of Euca- tion. We were greatly chagrined to -IN find that Lawrence was to fill such an exacting position, but was some- what relieved to find that he is to be assisted by his capable wife, the former Mary Gay. Ranzy Jones, Postmaster General. Little Ranzy always wanted to be a general in the army, but now he is doubled general as he is filling the responsible position as Postmaster General and his Wife the former Miss Thelma Cochran forces him to be general of her and their boys. Clyde Gailey, Sec. of Agriculture. Most of Clyde's time is taken up by playing with Goldiesmith as he calls the small golden haired girl of which he and Ruby Smith Gailey are the parents. Burton Stephens, Attorney Gen- eral. In Burton's college work a great stress was placed on the value of forceful argument, and we noticed that he had at last persuaded Fleda Ballenger to give up her perfectly good nome for that of Stephens. George Collier, Sec. of Commerce. George finds that his persuasive t'alk which he developed while selling books is of great help to him in dis- positions of our commerce. We were quiet confident that Mr. Moore's carefully selected cabinet would be a most wise and prudent group. After the luncheon we decided to visit our former classmates who had taken up their abode in the Federal C'ity. We were motoring down Pennsylvania Avenue when we saw a most colorful sign, "Moody-Prater Dancing School." A unique act was being taught by Misses Mildred Moody, Maybelle Prater and Mary Mooney. Page Sixty-nine SILVER AND BLUE IW Q05 The next place of interest was the Lester Motor Corporation which was founded and directed by Hope D. Lester, the inventor of the Radio- power Limousine. Hope's success was partly due to the help of his private secretary, Miss Emmie Jor- dan. Mr. Lester said that his chief engineer, Mr. Clyde Angle, was also a great asset to his business. We at- tributed Mr. Angle's designing ability to the fact that his home was quite a geometric one as he and his Berry sweetheart, the former Madeline Bag- well, were the proud parents of six little Angles. We were convinced that there is truth in the Hindu saying, "Small men often do great things" as we found Jesse Ray Gunn in the grocery business selling a great many spuds and making no small income for him- self and his life's companion who was formerly Miss Lois Lacy. Mr. Gunn told us of the whereabouts and suc- cess of Raymond Williams, Alton Per- due, and E. C. Littlejohn. They were owners and operators of the world's greatest chain stores, which cross the continent and deal exclusively in pea- nuts and popcorn. As Mr. Shields was so greatly pleased with the attainments of these many Berry boys and girls, he decid- ed to make a tour of the world and see or find out what the other mem- bers of the class of '30 were doing. We were invited to go on this jour- ney with him. After the giant airship took her leave from the airport in Washington we stopped first in Mooresville, N. C. at the home of the Jamisons. Mr. and Mrs, Jamison were known as "Red" Jamison and "Freckles" West- brook at Berry. When at last we brought ourselves to part with the Jamisons we headed to Charlotte, N. C., but due to a burst gas line we had to make an undesired landing on a large plantation near Chesterfield, S. C. As we swooped fiercely to the ground, a small boy came toward us. As the child neared us we saw the resemblance of Grover Fitts in the child's countenance. Up- on questioning the lad, we found that he really was the son of Grover Fitts and Jack Cadle. The Fitts household entertained us and gave us a glass of cool, refreshing water to drink. We learned that Dailey Smith and J. A. Shropshire lived in the vicinity. Re- membering Dailey's handiness with tools, we sent for him to come and help fix the ship, which he could hardly do for telling us about the home he and Mary Anne Jacobs had. He told us that J. A.. Shropshire was trying to break himself of the habit of trading knives, horses, and foun- tain pens, as he had just traded Mr. McCain a lame horse for a spring colt and Elsie had immediately broken their engagement. After our ship was repaired we continued our flight to Charleston and were glad to find the Blue Goose Tea Shoppe and enjoy the wonderful hospitality of the Allen sisters, joint owners of the Shoppe. Our next hop was over to Havana, Cuba to see the world-famous Mara- thon runners compete with athletes from other countries at the Interna- tional track meet. We were greatly pleased with the records set by Messrs. Nolan Arnett and Qllie Tyree, Page Seventy SILVER AND BLUE QM .IOP We decided to visit England and some of the European countries on our next lap so we turned our heads in that direction and gladly and fear- lessly crossed the roaring Atlantic. We made our first stop in London where we were entertained by the American Ambassador, Dave Hollo- way and his beautiful wife, the form- er Minnie Smith. Mrs. Holloway told us of Claire Williams who is now re- siding in Paris and is Mme. Marcus de Paree, having married a French nobleman shortly after her gradua- tion from Berry. We decided to visit Madame Paree and while in the city of music and revelry we attended a music concert at the Parker-Mulkey music conservatory. We found to our delight J. A. Parker head violinist and J. C. Mulkey director of the or- chestra while the conservatory was founded and operated by these two accomplished young men. We found that we could make the distance from Paris to Geneva in time for the International Good Will Conference which we were so eager to attend since we knew we would find Roy Bolt chairman of the con- vention, as had been announced in the newspapers of all countries for some time. We also hoped to find others of our Berry friends there. We arrived during a speech on "What The Individual Can Do To Further Peace And Happiness Among Nations". We recognized the speak- er as Lollie Bracewell, who we later found out, was working with a board on foreign relations in Japan. Be- fore the day was over we had the pri- vilege of hearing Grady Sanders speak. Grady was engaged in religi- ous work, being pastor of the first church of Shanghai, China. He in- vited us to stop in China on our way back to America, which we gladly decided to do. While in Shanghai we saw J. D. Wallace and his wife, the former Mary Chandler. J. D. was a promi- nent undertaker in the Oriental city and the proud father of 11 little "fat" boys. Since we had been gone a month, we decided to make our way back to our homeland and one morning we found ourselves flying across the Pa- cific, and before we realized it, we were to our own America. We landed in Los Angeles and were met by the mayor of the town, who was none other than our Berry classmate, Harvey Rodgers, who had married Elvie Maxwell. After their college work was completed they had gone to California. There he had made millions in growing seedless oranges and grapefruit, and now was mayor of that great city. Mr. and Mrs. Rodgers invited us to Visit them and one day we motored out to Holly- wood. When our visit came t'o a close, we decided to end our tour by going back to our Alma Mater to see how many of our classmates had stayed to carry on the work of our schools. We found Monroe Guyton at the prow of the mighty ship with all mo- tors running as smoothly as the pur- ring of a monster kitten. Sam Mash- burn was dean of the school. Other workers and teachers were: Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Barnett. Mr. Barnett was Dean of Labor. Mrs. Barnett will be remembered as Miss Thelma Beard. Miss Geraldine Dillard, die- tician at the girls' school. Mr. Hud- Page Seventy-one SILVER AND BLUE W' MV :Il son Moore was very successfully managing the campus while Mr. Broughton Walton was engaged in farming here. Mrs. Walton, the form- er Lucy Keith, was a teacher in the science department. Margaret Cole- man, librarian at the girls' school. Mr. Herman Clark, who was a proud old bachelor, had charge of the dairy. We discovered that we were in time to attend the annual Alumni Banquet at which we found a repre- sentation of 93W of the class of 1930. We were addressed by Hon. Edwin Hyatt, who gave a detailed account of each member of the'class of '30, some having won world-wide and imperishable renown. After listening to the accomplishment' and successes of our classmates, Miss Berry remarked, "I am glad to know that the boys and girls of 1930 have helped me to realize my dreams." WILL ln behalf of my client, the class of 1930 of the Berry Schools, State of Georgia, U. S. A. I hereby call your attention to her last will and testament. She being of sound mind, memory and understanding, wishes to bequeath to her nearest friends those gifts which she has collected as she has travelled through life.

As spokesman of my class, I assure you that you have a most hearty welcome here, and we hope that you enjoy our program. Parents, those of you who have sacrificed that we might be here and who have loved and guarded us through the years, there are not words to express the joy we have at your being here, and we extend to you a most cordial welcome. Beloved teachers, you come next to our parents in our thoughts and welcome because through these years you have been our parents. You have cheered us in our sorrows and in our joys you have rejoiced with us. We have not come up to your expecta- tions many times, no doubt, but you have been patient and have borne it well. We want you to feel that you have meant' a great deal in our lives and that you have inspired us to Page Seventy-Six - SILVER AND BLUE wi 1 It-D greater things. We want you to feel that you play an important part in this exercise, for you have made it possible. Fellow schoolmates, I take great pleasure in welcoming you because you have been a great help to us and I trust as we go you will take our place and fill it even better than we have. Miss Berry, parents, teachers, visi- ting friends, .and fellow students, again I say-Welcome! vALED,1C'roRY Friends, parents, members of the faculty, schoolmates, and classmates, we who are here this afternoon at the meeting between a happy past and an unknown future have not reached the end, but the Commence- ment of our lives. What those lives are to be will be governed very large- ly by the foundation which we have been building during the past four years. It is this thought that creates within me a zeal for Patriotism this afternoon-not a "Patriotism which has become a mere national self as- sertion, a sentimentality of flag cheer- ing with no constructive duties," but 9. patriotism concerned with very practical things-practical because :hey have to do with everyday life. Patriotism need not be associated Jnly with events of extraordinary iistinction and publicity, but we may ind the best and most noble examples if it in our daily duties of life. Every Qruly, successful man is patriotic, and can we find a better definition of luccess than this?-a man who does uncommonly well t'hose things which are considered by the masse as me- rely commonplace. Industrial education teaches the dignity of honest labor. As ex presi- dent Cleveland has said, "A truly American sentiment recognizes the dignity of labor and the fact that honor- lies in honest toil." Because of Berry standards and principles we should be able to go out into the world, able to work with our hands as well as with with our heads and to demonstrate Roosevelt's saying, "We need to produce, not genius, not bril- liancy, but the homely, commonplace, elemental virtues. If brilliant gen- ius comes without the accompaniment of the substantial qualities of charac- ter and soul, then it is a menace to the nation." With these thoughts in mind I am sure we will agree that patriotism consists not only in dying for one's country in time of war, but also in living for one's country in time of peace. Students show patriotism by serving not only their country, but also their school and their class. And to the members of our Faculty I would extend the thanks of the class for the instruction and guidance we have received. It is extremely dif- ficult to find words that will adequ- ately express the gratitude that is in our hearts to each of you. As Emerson has said, "The true test of civilization is not the census, the size of the cities, nor the crops produced, but it is the kind of men the country turns out." That is also a true test of our school. The great- est assets of any country are well trained and efficient young men and women. Realizing this fact, it fol- lows that he is the truest patriot who -Page Seventy-seven SILVER AND BLUE VN IN is engaged in the work of improving These are the things that make for our civilization and spreading culture. peace, To Miss Berry I find it impossible Both HOW, and after time Shall to even attempt to express our grati- Cease-" tude. It is through her faith in the manhood of the South and her un- ceasing efforts and her earnest pray- ers that great opportunites have been offered us, and for these we are grateful to her. Can we find any- where a truer patriot than our be- loved founder of whom it has been written: "All praise to her who labored, noth- ing scorning, For that enduring good which none may measure, With knowledge for her star, and love her creed, Who, hand in hand with God, has wrought this deed." To you, my fellow classmates, I would that this be a day of vision as well as a day of memory. So as we pass through the Gate of Opportun- ity, let us walk bravely with a full realization of the fact that with every opportunity our beloved founder has given us, came a responsibility of equal importance. We will not dis- appoint the trust that gave us these opportunities, by failing to live up to our responsibilities. Even though we will be separated by distance we will not be distant in spirit. We are all bound together by the principles and truths and ideals that have been instilled in us here. We know that we cannot fail if we go out into our chosen professions seeking what we can do for our community and hu- manity, rather than what our com- munity can do for us. "Not as we take, but as we giveg Not as we pray, but as we live- It is a poor creature who when he graduates does not feel that he has received something for which he owes a return. We should remem- ber that, "Who seeks aid must show how service sought can be repaid." In conclusion, let us not feel sad today as we leave these campus scenes, and our teachers and school- mates whom we have learned to love, but instead let us feel that another great opportunity has been placed be- fore us. It is now our opportunity to go out and prove true to our Alma Mater either by going forward into the broader field of college life or by entering into an active life in the world-that life for which we have been preparing. Let us not feel sadg we have not reached the end, but a new beginingg we are not bidding good-day but we are bidding good- morrow. For us, "The year's at the spring, And day's at the morn, God's in his heaven- All's right with the world. One dad to another: "What is youi son going to be when he gets out of school?" "About sixty years old, I'rr afraid." Reformer fTo individual prostrat ed in gutterj-And so this is the work of rum, is it? Prostrated individual-No, sir this is the work of a banana skin, sir -New Bedford Standard Page Seventy-eight SILVER VN AND BLUE IN POEMS CBGYSJ Farewell, old school, and friends so dear, Our parting day at last is hereg 'Tis sad to part, and this we know, But along life's road we all must go. Farewell, Miss Berry, our Founder true, We love you sincerely, indeed we dog But we can't stay, and this you know, So along life's road we all shall go. Farewell, dear teachers, with hearts sincere, The end of our days are drawing near, This we say with hearts o'er flowing, And we won't leave with out your knowing. Farewell, old campus, in all your g101'Y, With your trees and birds that sing their story, We love you truly, O yes, we do, But out in the world they're call- ing too. fGirlsJ Classmates our graduation has come The time at' last is here, That we must leave old Berry And friends we hold most dear. As we take a backward glance It isn't long, it seems Since we entered here together To materialize our dreams. We'1l never forget the happy' days That we have together spent They are memories that would linger No matter where we went. 'Tis true there have been days When the skies weren't always blue When we felt like giving up And telling our dreams crumbled through. Then ,we've thought of our Alma Mater So noble, true and brave Who has given her youth, her self, her all For lives like ours to save. And we saw 'twas the hard things in life If we only face them right That gives us new courage and hope To tackle and win the fight. So 'tho this time of parting be sad Lets meet it with a smile And remember the hardest trials that came our way Are blessings in beguile. We know not what our destinies may be Tho over the world we should roam We'll always be wishing and praying The best' for you back home. And the standards she has taught to us We will ever hold high and true And proudly love and cherish The "Silver and the Blue." It's better to have loved and lost than to have married and still be losing.
