1951 Graduating Class
S. S. TEACHER, STATESMAN-
Honor Crosby Adams
On February 28, Gaither Chapel was the
scene of the impressive funeral of Mr.
Crosby Adams, beloved Montreater and an
emeritus member of the Montreat College
faculty. His passing brought sorrow to the
hearts of all who knew him; and his figure
will be sadly missed in this year’s college
Officiating at the services were the Rev.
J. R. Williams, pastor; President J. R.
McGregor, the Rev. Dr. T. H. Spence, and
the Rev. H. H. Armistead. Dr. McGregor
told of Mr. Adams’ contributions to Mon
treat College; Dr. Spence spoke of his
literary contributions, especially the Friend
ship Calendar; Mr. Armistead reviewed his
services to the community; and Mr. Will
iams paid due tribute to his Christian in
fluence and read Mr. Adams’ favorite
poem, “Youth.” Mr. Adams was an elder
in the Montreat Church and it was his joy
to pass the Elements to the choir at Com-

Montreat is extremely fortunate in hav
ing one of the most distinguished men of
the South to deliver the commencement
address to the graduates of 1951. He is
Senator Clyde R. Hoey, a native of Shelby,
Mr. Hoey has had the honorary degree
of Doctor of Laws (L.L.D.) conferred upon
him by Davidson College, Duke University,
and the University of North Carolina. He
served as governor of this State from 1937-
41. In 1939, he was a candidate for the
presidential nomination on the Democratic
ticket. He was elected to the Senate in 1943
and re-elected in 1950.
Mr. Hoey is and probably always will be
best known as the “friendly Governor” —
the man who brought the government and
the people of North Carolina into the closest
and most friendly relationship in the his
tory of the State. We’re very proud and
very grateful for the opportunity of hav
ing him for our speaker this year.

First Open Campaign
Proves Great Success
Saturday, February 10, was election day.
From 11:00 A. M. until 4:00 P. M., the
voting booth was open, and each student
had an opportunity to vote for the ensu
ing year’s president of the Student Gov
ernment Association. A three-day, whirl
wind campaign preceded election day with
campaign managers for the three candi
dates leading the student body in its first
experience in open campaigning.
Shortly after the closing of the voting
booth, a big poster was placed in the lobby
of Assembly Inn which announced that
the winner was Evelyn Hennessee of Bostic,
North Carolina, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
H. E. Hennessee.
Evelyn’s election to this important office
is the climax of an outstanding college
career. During her freshmen year, she
made a name for herself both scholastic-
ally and in the field of sports. She served
as head of basketball on the Athletic
Board in her Sophomore year and also as
assistant house president the first semester
and house president the second semester
