produced in the past.
The local art editors are mak
ing some unusually fine draw
ings to be used as introductory
pages. Besides the student art
ists who are at work, the editor-
in-chief has secured the eser-
vices of Mr. James Burrus, who
was such a valuable aid on last
year’s “Mountaineer.” Mr. Bur
rus has just completed desi^s
for Ex-libris, sub-title, and title
pages. He has also worked up
panel designs for view section,
and senior section. These draw
ings will give to the book an air
of refinement that few can fully
appreciate, since they are based
on the designing submitted by
the footbaal teams of Weaver or
Mars Hill Colleges that wins the
first three games between the
two institutions. This trophy is
offered by the jewelry firm of
Carpenter - Matthews of Ashe
The first game between the
two institutions after the cup
was offered resulted in a score
less tie. Weaver won the next
game and is entitled to keep the
cup until the next meeting be
tween the two teams.
The trophy was presented to
the footb^l team by Mr. Mat
thews of the Carpenter-Mat-
thews firm at the chapel hour on
December 9ith. It was received
by Captain Brummitt.
