VOL. 16, NO. 3.
MONTREAT COLLEGE, MONTREAT, NORTH CAROLINA
After much deliberation, the
final selections of the superlatives
of the senior class were made by
the student body. Because there
are so many gifted seniors this
year, it was a very hard task, but
here are the results, the four
chosen as best of the graduating
class of 1951.
Betty Martin was selected from
a number of fine Christian girls
to bear the title, TRUE SPIRIT
UAL VISION. Betty, who is the
vice-president of the S. C. A., lets
her light shine all over the camp
us, and Christ is certainly mani
festing Himself through her.
‘GRACIOUSNESS was bestowed
on tall and attractive Pat Harley.
Pat, who always has a cheery
smile and a friendly word for
everyone she meets, is certainly
worthy of this honor. This, plus
her leadership abilities, makes her
a grand president of the senior
Jane Holt is truly deserving of
her title, JOY IN LEARNING,
and she was accorded this crown
unanimously by her fellow stu
dents. .lane, the Editor-in-Chief of
the S. P. S. is a vivacious and en
ergetic girl and always ready to
lend a helping hand to anyone.
“The best things always come
in .small packages.” This can
truthfully be said of SPORTS
MANSHIP, Alice Wardlaw. Alice,
the president of the Athletic As
sociation, is really a good sport
in everything. Not only on the
athletic field does she show the
fine qualities of a good sport, but
she also displays sportsmanship in
the daily classroom and in her soc
There, you have the cream of the
crop. Hats off to you, Super
latives — we congratulate you!
And to the student body—your
choices were indeed wise ones!

Thanksgiving Plans Are Announced
Miss Mildred B. Allen
Is New Secretary
The student body welcomes an
old Montreat girl back to home.
Miss Mildred B. Allen, new secre
tary to Dr. McGregor, attended
Montreat High School in 1939 and
1940. After her graduation in 1940,
she attended Mitchell Junior Col
lege. Upon completion of her
schooling at Mitchell, Miss Allen
journeyed down into St. Peters
burg, Florida, where she worked
for the big newspaper, the
TIMES, for three years.
Naturally her talents were soon
uncovered and so she joined the
Florida State Advertising Com
mission, where she was a staff
writer and field director of photo
graphy for national magazines and
syndicates. Even in the past eight
een months, she has hardly had
time to catch her breath for she
has been a student of the Florida
So you see, Miss Allen has
really accomplished a great deal
since she bade Montreat a fond
farewell in 1940. We know you
will be an asset to Montreat, Miss
Allen, and we sincerely hope that
you are as glad to BE back as
we are to WELCOME you back.
