Jr. The Significance of the Brevard College SEAL By symbols this seal portrays Brevard College and what it stands for. In the center there is a breast plate or shield. This weapon of de fense against the world has on it symbols to represent the most im portant characteristics of our col lege. The Cross' and Crown are symbolic of the Christian life which is at the heart of the whole institu tion. The torch represents the light of civilization and is placed with the open book for modern civi lization is based on intellectual a- chievement and a knowledge of the past and present and, study for the future. The arm and sledge ham mer are intended to represent the the work, the splf-help side of the College. At the bottom of the shield there is a figure of a youth standing on tip-toe with arms reaching upwards. This figure not only represents the youths of the student body, but it is intended to portray something of the youths’ enthusiasm and dynamic drive. Reaching to the utmost this youth is striving, by means of work, study, and Christian living, to real ize his hopes and see the dawn of a new day which is symbolized by the sunrise at the top of the shield. The cross bands separating the symbols are to bear the college col ors. Encircling the shield is, the name of the college, the date of its birth, and a motto on which the vei-y ex istence of the college seems to rest: “Labor Learn Live.” Through “labor” this school ena bles many to obtain an education who would never receive it other wise. “Learn" of course carries the thought of studies. “Live” includes both. Through labor and learning our students are enabled to meet the problems of the world and live and labor, more intelligent, and more Christian lives. The motto and the date are in plain English in preference to Latin to emphasize the practical side of our college, claiming that it is good for people in general to know what we stand for and are striving for. The name of the College and the motto are placed together on the ring so that they will always be closely connected. Methodist Student Conference Greensboro November 8-10 This conference is a gathering of Methodist students from all the col leges and universities in North Car olina. A conference of this kind in each State is being sponsored by the Methodist Church. Last year a large delegation went from here to the South Carolina Conference at Columbia. It was not possible to send a delegation to Raleigh when the North Carolina Conference met in that city. This year we want an even larger delegation to attend our own state conference at Greensboro. A very fine program has been ar ranged consisting of worship servi ces, discussions, music and ad dresses. The excellence of the ad dresses is guaranteed by the fact the keynote address is to be by Dr. Frank S. Hickman of Duke Univer sity and the closing sermon by Bish op Paul B. Kern. Addresses will also be delivered by Dean Elbert Russell, Dr. H. E. Spence, Dr. W. C. Jack son, Dr. Clyde Miller, and Dr. Har vey C. Brown. The theme of the conferen ce is ‘'The Student Faces Life.” With such a theme and such speakers it will pay all those who can to attend this conference.

Herd of Holstein- Friesian Cow^s Brought to the Campus When the day of October 11th was not more than two hours old. Presi dent Coltrane was disturbed from his peaceful slumber by vigorous, deter mined ringing of the phone from Hen dersonville. This call was to inform him that twelve pure bred Holstein- Friesian cows were on the way from the Stephens’ Dairy in Greensboro to their new home on the Brevard Col lege farm. Out under the shining moon, the President, like a latter day Paul Revere, made his way to various parts of the campus to arouse the pro per persons in order to prepare a roy al welcome for the bovine queens. Arrangements had scarcely been made and comfortable quarters provided when the queens arrived riding in a truck. By the time the roosters be gan their concert, Ralph Sheppard and Dickson Willis had become heroes, as they had completed milking the first dairy herd owned by Brevard College. This herd came from the farm of Mrs. Jesse Stephens who is foremost in raising dairy cattle in her part of North Carolina. It is through the ef forts of some Brevard College boosters and trustees that these cows were brought to the farm. It is hoped that before long another cow of even higher type and a young bull, both of which are donated by one of our trustees, Mr. R. 0. Lindsay of High Point, will be added to the herd. As soon as the new milk house is completed, three young men who go to the barn at four o'clock each morning, will return to bring whole some nourishment to the hungry d'n- ers of the boarding halls. Most of the feed for these cows has been produced on the college farm during the summer months and only supplements will be purchased. It is hoped that proper feeding and care will soon bring the herd into full production. Very much to our regret we are not able to give the names of these ladies of the stable. We have full assurance that they have names, but it was said that the names were tied up with ped igrees and could not be shipped with the cows. When the names arrive if you will go to the barn at milking time, Ralph Sheppard or Dickson Willis will give you a personal intro duction to the cows. Know^ing Covv^s Jethro Hoyle while looking over the cows remarked: “Why these cows are all bruised up.” Dickson Willis: “You’d be bruised up too, if you had ridden 250 miles in the back of a truck.’ Jethro: “They weren’t sitting down, were they?” FRESHMEN Elect Officers Last Wednesday the Freshman Class of about 250 members elected James Rogers as its president this year.
