From this time until the beginning of the school year on September 23, fifteen boys worked on the farm and grounds a total of 3,816 hours, to earn $623.19. At the beginning only men and hoes were used; but on August 10 John and Haley, a team of mules, came to the fields. Following their debut a new wagon, a mowing ma chine, and a grain drill were seen making their tracks on the Brevard College landscape. After weeding their way slowly and steadily through the corn and potato fields, several farmers welcomed the com ing of the machine era. By this time Dixon Willis had become a full-time foreman, and he laid regular spiral shaped swaths of new mown soybean hay over fif teen acres of fertile soil. Following him were the haulers who trans ferred the cured dairy feed to the mow. Simultaneous with this activity was football practice on the gridiron. A prospective tackle. Barton Farthing, was lifting hand- le-breaking loads of forage and hop ing that he might develop a mus cle culture comparable with that of other teamsters. After several days of expectation, the morning of September 13 greet ed a McCormick-Deering iron horse as it came from McCrary’s garage and solicited the cooperation of an obstinate feed cutter in changing seven acres of tall corn into many tons of aromatic silage. New stu dents came and helped with the preservation of the bairy bovine dessert. As these jobs of feed storage were completed, the stage was set for the arrival of a herd of cows. Before the crowing of the first cock on the morning of October 12, President Coletrane was aroused by a violent disturbance of the tele phone. “The cows are coming,” said Mr. H. J. Julian, former owner of the heard. A Paul Revere turn on the lights in the room of Dick son Willis and Ralph Sheppard in Ross Hall and informed them of their duty as a reception committee to the twelve purebred Holstein- Friesians. For several days Frank Penland’s spotted Poland China pigs thrived on the good milk which all children should have daily. Sad was the day, October 26, when 20 gallons of milk cooled over new equipment in a new milk house were taken a. way from the hungry, youthful porcine creatures and given instead to prospering appetites in West Hall. Such has been the program from that date. The dairymen are now awaiting the arrival of the queen and crpwn prince of the herd which are being donated by an ar dent supporter and trustee of Bre vard College, Mr. R. 0. Lindsay of High Point. It is announced that at the begin ning of the second quarter those young men interested in a study of agriculture may enroll in a class of dairying. “Ouch, mummie, I hurt my toe!’ ’ cried small Janey, who was playing out in the garden. “Which toe, dear?” I enquired, as I examined her foot. “My youngest one,” sob bed Janey.—“Parents Magazine.” Girls’ Literary Societies Meet Mnemosynean The regular meeting of the Mnem osynean Literary Society was held No vember 12 with the president, Edith Beard, in charge.

The meeting adjourned after the business. Lady Resident in Taylor Hall Bernice Swanbuckle, a new resident of Taylor Hall, is a much talked a- bout young lady. For the last few days she has been staying in room 106 and office. Of course all of the boys have to go around to see her at some time or another. She has all of those slim, graceful, alluring curves that are essential to the girl of today. Those sparkling eyes and that shapely head make most of the boys just stand a round and look while others come up and talk to her. Messers Swan and Hornbuckle first met the young lady at the Camp Carolina golf course last Simday and persuaded her to accompany them home. Of course some of you haven’t seen Bernice, because she has been staying pretty close to her new home. Bernice Swanbuckle is a young garter snake one foot long.
