This year Gardner-Webb College has had one of the best athletic
programs in the state of North Carolina. After a thrilling season of foot
ball, the team made its highlighting play in winning the Golden Isles
Bowl Game in Brunswick, Ga. Following up the football season, our bas
ketball team has been presenting quite a few thrillers, having a 6-3 rec
ord in the Central Carolina Junior College Conference. As of now, our
team holds fifth place in the conference.
Every student on Gardner-Webb campus should be a part of these
activities, but is he? The answer is definitely NO! With as large a stu
dent body as Gardner-Webb has, we should have a turnout of at least
one half the students at every home game, giving full support to the
team and to the cheerleaders. A game is more easily won when the play
ers know that the student body is backing them, wanting them to win.
Too many of the students on our campus do not feel this responsibility
concerning school spirit. They do not realize that a school’s spirit de
pends upon its students.
Those who attend the games seem to think that the cheerleaders are
there to do all the cheering, while they sit back and watch the game.
But the cheerleaders need you, the students, to help them.
In the remaining games that we have here, let’s all come out and
show some real school sptrit! Help the cheerleaders, and yell until you’re
purple in the face! Show the team that you're behind them, pulling
for them. What do you say????

Today's Look By Our President
Dr. p. L. Elliott
Now that the end of the first decade for the present ad
ministration of Gardner-Webb approaches, we begin to think
of taking inventory and launching out on another stretch.
It would be hard to weigh what development has been
most significant during these years. The plant has expanded
from 35 acres to 1,123; from five to twenty-five buildings;
the student body has increased 460'/[. The faculty has grown
from twelve to twenty-five. The endowment now totals $260,-
000.00. There has been an unquestioned loyalty on the part
of the trustees and patrons.
Furthermore, the college is as highly accredited as the
first two years of any College in the South. These things are
all important and very significant. They are not, however,
the college. The college is an intangible something that comes
from a synthesis of all these things plus a certain intangible
and indefinable something known as spirit and which rises as
a kind of overtone from the spirits of those who know the
grandeur, beauty, and significance of a great dedication.
Thus we look to a greater future. We must have more
buildings, more equipment, more teachers. These can be had
by the loyal devotion and support of those who love the col
lege. We may, however, have all these and lose the vital part
of the college. As we take our inventory and set out to pro
vide the things we must have to do our work, we must not
forget the more important things that cannot be seen.
“These things you should have done, and not
left the others undone.”
Missionary Visits Campus

Our campus was favored last week with the presence of
the missionary, John S. McGee of Egede, Nigeria. Mr. Mc
Gee spoke at the chapel services on Wednesday and Friday,
and to several of our student groups.
Each evening he spoke in the church auditorium. All who
heard him were strengthened in their Christian convictions
and were challenged to see the whole world as in need of
We thank Mr. McGee for his ministry to us here at Gard
s. This committee has approved the following changes:
Students may have more freedom when dating on the
campus on Sunday afternoon, provided they do not enter
any buildings other than the Girl’s Home. However, stu

“What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice and everything nice,
That’s what little girls are made of.”
So goes the nursery rhyme, but
little girls always grow up, and even
Mother Goose, unfortunately, has
no formula for the finished product.
You yourself know that you are
not all sugar and spice and every
thing nice. So what are we going to
do about it? Let’s begin by taking
inventory of ourselves.
Looks as if it’s going to be a c’im-
lined spring — suits have straighter
skirts and longer jackets. This in
deed presents a problem. Because
of these between-meal snacks many
of us have developed an unsightly
bulge or two. These repeated
“spreads” we have in our rooms
play havoc with our waistlines. It
will take slim waistlines to wear
straight lines. Let’s all get in step
and enjoy a “slim-lined spring.”
What’s new in colors? It isn’t
new but evidently it is going to be
good this season. Yes, pink is one
of the top colors being shown this
spring. Thanks to Mamie Eisen
hower whose pink dress for the in
augural ball started a craze.
Overnight a few of the girls about
school developed platinum, golden
blonde, and orange tresses. Some
even say that it means one is going
steady. Personally, yours truly can
not confirm this.
Yes, new style suits, radiant pink,
and peroxide tresses all add up to
style, color, and fads. That’s what
big girls are made of!
