Rutherford Ramblers— 1928
The regular training; school
which is held each year at Ruth
erford College will begin on Jan
uary 27, 1929. This school is onf
of the most important and bene-
Sclal attractions on Rutherford’s
program. All students are urged
'o take one of the courses offered.
Several courses are arranged, and
standard credits are awarded to
all those who make a creditable
grade. Dr. Paul N. Garber of
Duke University will teach “The
Spirit and Genius of Methodism.”
There is also a course offered on
“The Problem of the Small Sunday
School,” or “How to Run a Small
Sunday School.” These courses
are up to the present age of
thought and are of vital impor
tance to all who are interested in
Church and Sunday School work.
When the school opens in January
why not make the attendance for
Rutherford one-hundred percent?
MUSICAL PROGRAMME
IS ENJOYED BY ALL
'On Monday night, November 26,
1928, the students of the Music
Department of Rutherford College
rendered a most enjoyable ixro-
gram. The different selections
furnished an evening of delightful
entertainment. The program con
sisted of instrumental solos and
duets, vocal selections, and recita
tions. A good crowd was present.
MR. FONG WILL GO TO
CANADA FOR HOLIDAYS
Mr. Pong will leave Rutherford
Friday, December 21, for his home
in Renfrew, Ontario. The trip is
about nine-hundred miles and it
will take some two or three days
for the journey. Mr. Fong is the
only Canada student at Ruther
ford, and Rutherford is proud to
have him listed on the enrollment
of the student body. Mr. Fi>ng is
a skilled student and handles his
work in the most effective and sat
isfactory manner. It is hoped by
both faculty and students that he
will return to Rutherford to re
sume his college work.

KILLARNEY COLEENS
APPEAR AT COLLEGE
The Killarney Coleens were here
some time ago. They were very
entertaining and the trombone and
readings were much enjoyed by
the audience. There was a good
crowd present and all were very
recepitive, getting the most out of
the evening of delightful enter
tainment.
Thieves stole a $400 painting
from the University of California,
leaving a Remibrandt worth $20,-
000 untouched. Which shows the
importance of education.
It was quite a pleasant s'urprise
for the students of Rutherford
College to learn that “Useless”
Grant was the proud possessor of
a $20,000 cow. This cow had tak
en several prizes at various shows,
but until this time she was not so
well known. At the recent fair
Grant’s cow took first prize in her
class and immediately the owner
was offered $20,000 for her. Grant
says that he will not sell her, and
that he is not afraid of her dying
■on his hands. He has her insur
ed for the full amount, and is
thereby protected against loss.
It was with regret that we learn
ed Qf Grant sickness last week, but
we are glad to see him around the
campus again.
Americans spend $287,000,000 a
year for soaip. There’s no little
hoy in this country who couldn’t
think of a better use for all that
money.
RUTHERFORD DOWNS
MARS HILL IN GAME
Rutherford kicks off to Mars
Hill downing them on their (thirty
yard line. The Blue Jackets fail
to make a main and punt to the
Ramblers, the ball being downed
on the 50 yard line. Payne and
Ward plunge through the line for
first and ten. Payne runs again
for first and ten. Smith makes a
right efid for .first and ten. After
the Ramblers had compl'-eted three
censecutive first and tens the Blue
Jackets intercepted a pass on their
own twenty yard line and was
downed on the liae. Mars Hill
then punts to Rutherford and the
ball is down on the 50 yard line.
The Ramblers then punt back to
the Blue Shirts who are downed
on their 35 yard line. Mars Hil
punts again to Rutherford but the
Bani'blers do not return the punt,
but Hunter passes to Ward who
runs for a touch-down. The Ram
blers failed to kick the extra point.
The Blue Jackets kick to the
Ramblers and the ball is dov/ned

Christmas Holidays Begin Dec. 21
and Continue Until January 2nd.
According to the college Calen
dar classes will discontinue work
on December 21, Friday, at 12 M.
for the Christmas holidays. Work
will be rseumed at 8 A. M. Wed
nesday, January 2. This allows
eleven days absence from the
scene of action. This is a time
shorter than at most. colleges and
universities, but it is occasioned by
the prolonged Thanksgiving holi
days.
Students will remember that
all cuts taken immediately pro
ceeding and succeeding the holi
days will count as double cuts. Pu
pils will also remember that if
there is over eight cuts in any one
course, they will not be eligible for
examination, and will therefore be
debarred from credit on such
HUNT SELECTED NEW
NAME FOR RECORDER
The Rutherford Rectangle
Chosen As the Name to Re
place The Recorder.
The Rutherford Recorder is his
tory now, for as you will see from
the beau/tiful masthead on the
front page a new name and mast
head has been designed for the
college paper — The Rutherford
Rectangle, and it will henceforth
be known by this name.
This college publication is now
in its third year and with this is
sue adopts a third name. “The
Ruitherford Breezes” was the style
of the paper thru the first year
of its existence. However, this
name was not altogether satisfac
tory and with the beginning of the
second year the name was changed
to “The Rutherford Recorder.” But
this burensome and unattractive
heading ceased to meet the re
quirements to make the publica
tion as neat, interesting and at
tractive as it should be. Since the
beginning of this school year a new
name has been under discussion.
It remained for Edwin B. Hunt,
who hailed us this year from
Reeds High School in Davidson
county, to suggest the new name
and design the masthead. The
beautiful new masthead and name
is an exact reprodutcion of the
original drawing of Hunt, and is
one that has met the keen approv
al of the staff, the faculty, and
the student body as a whole. To
Hunt, who is considered one of the
best all-round students on the cam
pus, goes the honor of naming and
designing The Rutherford Rectan

A group of students met the
other night and organized a local
Anninias Club. It seems that they
arc making good headway. Charles
Pinckney Roper was elected Presi
dent and Lynn Loy polled over
''.aws for the Vice-Presidency. Fol
lowing are the political speeches
male by the candidates:
Mr. Roper.
(Editor’s Note: Mr. Roper has
never been kno'vvn to' get out of a
:inail’s gallop only when in contact
wtih snakes; and the reader shall
now have, in Pinckney’s own style,
an account of his flight from a
coach whip snake).
“I had a hog claim over beyant
Moor’s Fork, and I concluded I’d
take old Bucksmasher (his rifle)
and go inter the big hlckleberry
patch, on Round Hill, in sarch for
’um. Off I trolloped, and toddled
about for some time, but couldn’t
find head nur tail uv ’im. But
while I was moseyin’ about, I cuni
right chug upon one uv the big
gest, longest, outdaciousest coach-
whip snakes luver laid my peep
ers on. He reared right straight
up, like a May-pole, licked out his
tarnacious tongue, and good as
said, “Here’s at you, sir. What
bizness have you on my grit?”
Now I’d heam folks say ef you’d
look a vinimus animal right plumb
in the eyes he wouldn’t hurt you.
Now I tried it good, just like I
were trying to look through a mill
stone. But, bless you, honey! he
had no more respect fur a man’s
face and eyes than he had fur a
huckleberry, sure’s as a gun’s iron.
So I seed clearly that I’d have
to try my trotters.
I dashed down old Bucksmasher,
and jumped ’bout ten steps the fust
leap, and on I went wnsser nur an
old buck fur ’bout a quarter, and
turned my noggin round to look
for the critter. Jehu Nimshi! there
he were right dab at my heels,
head up, tongue out, and read as a
nail-rod, and his eyes like two

CHICAGO CONCERT CO.
FEATURES AT SCHOOL
The Rutherford Rectangle
Chosen As the Name to Re
place The Recorder.
The Chicago Concert Company
rendered a very excellent program
here some few weeks ago which
was very entertaining and amus
ing. The program consisted of
musical selections, a reading, and
an act in costume.
We were very fortunate in se
curing this high class entertain
ment. It was possible on account
of the fact that their schedule was
open on this night and their ser
vices were secured at much below
their regular price.
