The picture was show'n under the aiis
pices of the Business Administration
Department and was very interesting to
the commercial students because it il

The picture w'as produced by the

proves very effective.
Mr. S. . Price, the college organizer

Immediately after the picture Mr.

New Social Club for Young Men Has
Been Officially Eecognized by the ,
Faculty. Ten Members. '
Our Alma Mater is not only increaa-
ing in numbers, beautiful buildings, at
tractive grounds and modern equip
ment, but also expanding along socifjl
lines. On Thursday evening, March 11','
19‘Jo there was a new' social club offi
cially initiated into the College life.
The College had so* expanded that
many thought a new organization was
in order. This thinkiiig has material
ized and the Alpha Chapter of Alpha
Pi Delta has come into being. It is
hacked by a group of men w'ho are do-
terniined that Elon will continue to de
velop along worthy lines.
Every class is represente'il in the
membership. So far every member is
planning to return in the fall. Two are
members of the present Senior class but
w'ill return for post-graduate work. The
iiiitiijl banquet will be given in 1925-26
but a dedication social is being planned
for the new club.
Prof. T. E. Powell has been of great
assistance as adviser. It is the wish
of the members that the hearty co-op
eration which the faculty has given will
continue and that the good spirit al
ready exhibited towards the 'members
of the other clubs will continue to be a
source of fellowship to all concerned.
There are two distinct values which
must be emphasized in a student body
in order that it shall not become lop
sided. They are: scholarship attain
ment and social advancement. Alpha
Pi Delta sanctions both of these and
to aid members to attain these values
an ‘'Alpha Pi Delta Scholarship Fund”
is being provided which will be of great
aid to its deserving members in the

THE TRUE RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
It’s doing the job the best you can
And being just to your fellow man;
It’s making money—but holding friends
And staying true to your aims and ends.
It’s figuring how and learning why,
And looking forward, and thinking high
And dreaming a little and doing
It’s keeping always iu closest touch
With wdiat is finest in word and deed;
It’s being thorough, yet making speed;
It’s daring blithely the field of chance
While making labor a brave romance;
It’s going onward despite defeat
And fighting staunchly, but keepi^ig
It’s being clean and it’s playing fair;
It’s laughing lightly at Dame Despair:-
It’s looking up at the stars above,
And drinking deeply of life and love;
It’s struggling on with the will to witi,
But taking loss with a cheerful grin;
It’s shaking sorrow and work and
And making better this good old earth;
It’s serving, striving through strain
It’s doing your noblest—that’s success!.
