His father was a farmer, and little Edward lived for seven years as “a true son of the soil.” At| the age of seven he moved with his family from Madison to Buncombe County. Received his “lower” ed ucation at Woodfin High School and also played baseball. Entered Weav-j er College in the fall of 1918 and played against Mars Hill. While Perhaps the first step should be charming co-ed who one taken by the whole student Buckner. (B.C. ‘lovers,” note last sentence.) In 1919 Mr. Buckner entered Trinity College (later Duke University) and received his A. B. Degree in 1921. Often the visitor or passerby judges a college solely by the ap pearance of its campus, not spend ing the time or effort to look for other qualities. Their impression is simply a reflection of the way the campus looks. Also a campus can be a source of pride or shame to the students, faculty, friends, and al umni. We shoul seek to make our campus a beautiful place so that we Edith Beard Summers Maugans Archie Hardie Robert Andrews I will be prOUd of it Why Worry About Examinations age In Most students, regardless of or rank, dread examinations, reality however it is not the exami nations that worry us, but the thought of having to take the ex aminations. Psychologists tell us that most nervous break-downs are not caused by excessive work, but by the thought and worry of hav ing to work. During the off-duty hours of war the soldier worries, sweats, and dreads the thought of the next bat tle; but when he has reached the front and the firing has begun, he forgets the curse of war and be gins action. It is the same way with examinations. During the week approaching the “big quissz” we hate for the time to come. Of ten it worries us so much that we decide that we will not profit by studying, and off we go to a show or a “bull session.” Now I do not say that cramming, so to speak, is proper. Every stu dent has had examinations l)efore. We all have a faint idea as to what our examination grades will be, and we all know what kind of prep aration, if any, we should make. Our hours between now and exam inations should not be spent in mis erable forebodings about what ap proaches; neither should we dope ourselves—and there are more ways than one—to ward off the thought of examinations. Truly, the clear er and freer our minds the better our answers will be. body and every person living or working on the campus. It should be the preservation of our present resources. It would help greatly if people walked in the proper paths and roads, not tearing gaps in shrub bery but depositing trash in waste cans, which could be placed at sev eral convenient spots on the campus Perhaps this step could be enforced by a plan devised by the student council. One college that I know of has a certain number of students acting as “campus police.” These deputized students carry whistles with them wherever they go; and when they see some person walking across grass, or committing some other undesirable act, they blow the whistle to remind the offender that he is doing wrong. Often we do these destructive things uncon sciously. A second step that could be tak en with.only a little trouble would be the sponsoring of a beautification program by some individual or or ganization. Let there be a special week known as “Beautification Week,” and during that time have the different clubs make efforts to beautify the campus; and at the end of the week let the club which has done most along this line get a special reward or recognition. At any rate, much could be done to improve our campus. Brevard Will be Represented at Memphis Brevard College will be represent ed at the Young People’s Conference in Memphis, Tennessee, December 27-31, by the following students: Misses Alice Scott, Sara Lou Kiger, Sarah King, Ethel Kerr, Louise Ward; Messers William Scott, Rem bert McNeer, Jr., James Rogers, Earl Pearson, and Uoyd Parks,., ac companied by Mr. Buckner and Mrs. Coltrane. The theme of this conference is “Facing Life With Jesus Christ.” The students of Brevard College should be interested to know that Dr. W. A. Smart, of Emory Univer- _ sity is to deliver the keynote address Accepted a job as instructor in Dur-[o”the topic The Answer to Youth S ham. North Carolina, in 921; taught winters and studied •ummers at Duke, receiving his M. A. in '24. He lived in Durham for ten years and then moved to Burlington, N. C., where he accepted the office as principal of the Burlington High School. Joined the Brevard faculty in the fall of ’35 as Dean of the College. Mr. Buckner has a pleasing personality, a wife and three children, a Plymouth car, a great faith in Brevard College, and an earnest desire some day to receive his Ph. D. from Duke University. The Are Students Going Two girls were brought before the dormitory council. “Have you a lawyer?" Ida asked. ‘ ‘No, we decided to tell the truth. ” Moon and Mist By Helen Avett The moon slips out her bed of clouds, | And gives the night A mellow glow like that of shaded I lamps. She spreads across the shivering | earth Her cloak of misty light. Miss Smith used the blackboard to make her points in the discussion more impressive and distinct. After she had completed her work she failed to | move so that the board could be seen. David Asheworth said: “Miss Smith, | I can’t see that.” Miss Smith replied: “Please be pa- t'ent, David. Can’t you see I’m try- iny to make myself as clear as possi ble?” Home By Jack Dozier Oh! you’d better step on it, Prf^au down hard; II’h surely going to be a dull time| in Brevard, The College students are going home. | We’ve finished exams, Now we’re making for the bus; No late li^t jams; Again for us. The College students are going home. We’re running 'round the campus, We’re packing every bag; We’re impaitent for the bus to come. Oh! why does the driver lag. Oh! you’d better step on it,' Press down hard; It’s surely going to be a dull time| in Brevard, The college students are going home. With tales of delight we’re ready toj go, We’ll even sacrifice our very best] beau. The college students are going home. With all the folks around us, We’ll have a time of glee; We’re going to build a family circle, ] All around the Christmas tree. Demands.” The delegates will have the opportunity of hearing many of the outstanding thinkers of the world. Such people as Dr. Toyohiko Kagawa, world Chnstian from Japan, who will speak on the subject “What Christ Means To Me”; Y. C. Yang, presidentofSoochow Univer sity, whose theme will be “Young China—Bane or Blessing?” Senator Gerald P. Nye, who will speak on “The Munitions Industry and The Cause of War,” Kirby Page, the great peace advocate, and many other pciople of international impor tance will bring various aspects of world affairs to the vast numbers of delegates at the conference. This conference should afford the five or six thousand young people and adults with definite proof that the only method with which one may face life and world conditions at the present time is with Jesus Christ. Succotash The way I feel now I think I could write an entire essay on “Washing Glasses.” I have it all figured out. If I were to continue washing glasses after three meals a day for nine weeks for 217 people, by the time my duty work is up I will have washed 40,013 glasses. Right now my idea of Public Enemy No. 1 is the person who crams napkins and other foreign matter down his glass; the best and most helpful thing a person can do is to drink all of his water. Really though, duty work isn't at all bad. Continued on page 4 Oh! you’d better step on it, Press down hard. It's surely going to be a dull time in Brevard, The college students are going home.
