For the most part, they v/ere green in every sense of the word, but they were determined to adjust themselves to the exactions of a college program, and to pay the cost in work, thought and sacrifice of a college edu cation. The group is now on the last lap of its four-year journey. It has, however, not been all work; lots of fun has been in terspersed. The athletic games, the social occasions, the meeting of celebrated persons, and the work and association with instructors have all contributed fond memories of "Old State" we shall forever cherish. There has been consolation, too, in seeing the College grow, and in being a part of that growth. Under the leadership of Dr. James__W. Seabrook, the College in 1947 was granted the Class "A" rating by fte Southern Association of Colleges; recently an extensive build ing program has been approved by the state legislature and the money appropriated. Next year's curricular offerings will be expanded. To the knowledge which the College has imparted, we shall continue year by year to add new knowledge, to travel in new lands, and to work out new theories to the end that we may enhance the good name of our alma mater, make our mai> in the world, and carry a "lighted torch" to Negro youth, many of whom may never see a college campus.

Having worked feverishly for ten hours, a man posted his in- Dcme tax return letter two minutes prior to the deadline. The post man observed ten minutes later .hat the letter was addressed to; The Infernal Revenue Depart ment. The most simplified of the sev- 1 income tax blank asked just four questions: What was your income last /ear? What were your expenses last year? How much cash do you have on hand?

Choir Makes Donation The College Choir, directed by Mr, George Van Hoy Collins, has donated two sets of stage back drops for the college assembly room.
