It is believed that Prof. Yarborough, a
teacher in the college in the eighties and
nineties, Influenced Bowie to come to
Mars Hill. Bowie was a student here

After beginning with a good deal of

were given a most happy evening on
Saturday, when Mr. Lineberry, the

their preparation for the debate.

A few afternoons ago the student
ministers of Mars Hill College gathered
in front of the Administration building
for the purpose of having an outing. At
the appointed hour of four the crowd
moved otf to seek that which is neces
sary to keep one from growing prema
turely old—relaxation from care. Mirth
was prevalent from the very beginning.
Laughter, joking, and the matching of
wits accompanied the party throughout
The scene for the picnic was a de
lightful one, indeed. The green grass
and budding trees gave a touch of spring
to the occasion, and the sound of rip
pling and falling water was a pleasant
contrast to classroom lectures.
Mesdames Baker, Jamerson, and Pick
ering, who had the edibles in charge,
were ably assisted by the young men,
who showed their ability for building
fires, for preparing forks on which to
roast the welners, and for doing other
tasks which are necessary for the prep
aration of an open-air dinner.
Dinner was served at six o’clock, a
large flat rock serving as a table for
the occasion. The spread, much of which
had ben prepared by the ladles before
leaving home, consisted of chicken,
sandwiches, freshly roasted weiners,
cake, and delicacies that are rarely found
even on banquet menus. The ladles de
serve praise for the Important part they
played on this occasion, and the mem
bers of the Conference highly appreci
ate their devoted Interest.
After-dinner speeches were made by
Messrs. Long, Bradley, Ellis, Maddry,
Sullivan, and Dr. Poole. These were
witty and fitting to the festival occasion.
Everyone returned at sunset feeling as
though he had drunk from the "Foun
tain of Youth."
At Greensboro, N. C. in the forenoon
of March 26. a committee consisting of
persons from the principal campuses of
our state met to discuss the next state
wide B. S. U. conference.
At the head of the discussion sat Paul
Caudill, who displayed to the best of his
ability a large amount of assumed and
natural dignity. Upon carelessly look
ing on that body, one would have mis
taken it for a meeting of the President
and his Cabinet. Business was hurriedly
dispensed with. Next came a song, a
prayer, and the roll call by campuses.
Those present were: Mary F. Biggers,
president of the B. S. U. of Aleredith
College; R. W. Wilkins, president of the
B. S. U. of the University of North
Carolina; Perry Alorgan, chairman of
the Committee on Student Activities In
North Carolina; R. P. Downey, student
secretary of Wake Forest College; Cleo
Alitchell, student secretary of N. C. C.
W.; Winnie Ricket, prominent B. Y.
P. U. leader of the state; Y. E. Elliott,
student secretary of State College; Mar
tha Cannady, B. S. U. president of N. C.
C. W.; A. H. Lapocott student secretary
of the University of North Carolina;
Chas. A. Aladdry, student of Alars Hill
College; and R. P. Caudill, President of
State B. S. U.
After acquaintances were made, Mr.
Caudill gave in few but forceful words
the purpose of the meeting and the
ideals to be realized. "We have as
sembled here, my friends,” he began,
"to discuss and plan for what to us ap
pears to be the greatest meeting of our
consolidated student bodies for the cause
of Christian religion in North Carolina.”
After these words wore spoken and
other remarks were made, it began to
dawn upon tliat little group of people
that a real object was the cause of their
assembling. To add to these things.
Perry Alorgan made an excellent re
view of the B. S. U. in tlie South since
it was organized. Mr. Alorgan mentioned
something that will, indeed, be pleasing
to all those who are Interested in B. S.
U. work. It was that the state Alission
Board is contemplating adding a depart
ment of Student activities equal in rank
to that of the B. Y. P. U. and Sunday
A keynote was adopted which is hoped
to be identical with the South-wide key-

SPEAKERS’ BUREAU PRO
The greatest demand on the Speakers’
Bureau at present seems to be for com
mencement speakers. Among those
schools which have recently requested
speakers are Newland, Crossnore, West
Buncombe, Pensacola, Almond, Candler,
Cove Creek, and Dallas.
The Speakers’ Bureau, under the ef
ficient direction of Mr. Elliott, since its
organization last year has been active
in providing speakers for churches,
.schools, and various organizations in this
part of the state. The need for such a
bureau at Mars Hill Is evident from the
Increasing demands being made upon it.
’The organization promises to be a most
important phase of exten.sion work by
Mars Hill College.
