MONTREAT, NORTH CAROLINA
September 23, 1940
With shouted greetings that
ranged from "heys" to "hails" to
"heils", the gates of Montreat
were opened last Wednesday by a
throng of familiar faces, and
college let itself be overrun in
the joy of having .last year's
girls home again.
The old intimacy is renewed,
in spite of changes summer has’
v.Tought. Even though you may
bo bursting v/ith vitamins or
sporting a new pompadour hair
style. Montreat is. glad you are
back and wants you to make this
another successful year.
Little has changed — there
is the same magnificent setting
for the same magnanimous schoolj
the bulletin boards contain those
clever posters; the dining room
has that magnetic, quality that
makes it a mecca for pedagogues
and pupils alike; Jime gives out
the mail; and the hall is all
taken up by trunks — but every
nook and cranny is dear to be
hold again. However, if you
notice any new warp, rest assured
that they are helps, not hin
Isn't it grand to feel wise
and learned when you can answer
under-classmen's questions, and
sing the "Alma Mater" from mem
ory? You feel so proud inside,
be causa' you are known as a Mon
treat girl. You feel as though .
this year you are a part of
MONTREAT'S BIG TREAT
Awe-struck facial expressions,
anxiety to be liked, bewilderment
in every move, that "l-am-a-
college-girl appearsmoe -— all
these serve as identification
tags for this year's crop of girls,
They are welcoming Montreat
and Montreat is literally open
ing her* .arms to gather in the
lassies, be they athletic or
feminine^ light or dark, scholars
or play-girls, short or tall.
;■ candy bars when the familiar
routine.is discovered. Trips
are made daily to the store for
those forgotten items which
mean so much to the deoorative-
ness of the room. Voluminous
letters are written home tell
ing the fun in the recreational
hall from which many are suffer
ing with sore muscles. Every
one likes her free periods
immensely because they are the
same as her roommate's.
We are glad to see you here
and we like to see you happy.
We like to see you dashing
around wi^h a snatch of a Mon
treat song coming from your
lips. We like your new re-
versibles which you proudly
displayed the first rainy day.
We like to see you smile and
speak to everyone. We like the
fovir new faculty members, and
we like to see that you do too.
In other words we like
you and we like to see you.
