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. Davis, Ernest Nunn, Albert James Lane, and Charles Groover in Word, and Tom Meacham in Choir. Band, Lorraine Howe, Wilma Thread- gill, Anne Edwards, Ernest Nunn, Guy Davis, Coatney Davis, and Albert Wyatt in orchestra, Jean Hayes, 'lhaxton Hardy, Carson Hardy, Lamar Jackson, James Lane, and Charles Grover in Glee Club, and Ruth John- son, Nelle Fletcher, Sarah Miller, Jack Permenter, Barney Nunn, John Word, and Tom Meacham in Choir. 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. "I hear that young Whiffle had a nervous breakdown." "Yes. Among his high school com- mencement gifts he recieved a pair of pink pajamas and a set of mili- tary brushes, and it wore him out trying to decide whether to go to Harvard or West Point."-Wabash Caveman. A Chinese boy's description of a piano: "Them box, you fight him in teeth. He cry." Page Thirty-four
