The bitter remembrance of a sting
ing defeat at the hands of the Teach

the 100 per cent support of the stu

stimuli to carry the Mars HilLcag-
ers to a 30-27 victory on Friday

God in his grace and wisdom sent
to us two of His servants. Dr. Lyons
and Dr. Perkis. 'The .student- body
learned to love these men.
After a few chapel talks by Dr.
Lyons and Dr. Perids, the fire broke
out in the student body. It burned
up sin, ffrst in the lives of Chri,s-
tians and then spread. Boys and
girls began to organize prayer group.s
in the various dormitories. In these
groups students took God at His

board displayed a Mars Hill lead

Although the game was fast, it
was also very rough. During tie:
first half many fouls were called on
both teams. Almost every' man on
the lo-al varsity was more or less in
danger of being disqualified when the
half ended. The .second half was be

of both quintets. The storm broke

According to the i-ecords in the
registrar’s office for the first semes
ter, eighty-five students made at
least one quality point and did not
make a D or an E on any cour.se.
The.se students carried a total of
460 courses, making an average of
5.5 courses each. They made 110
A’s, 225 B’s, and 126 C’s which gives
to each one an average of approxi
mately 1.3 A’s, 2.7 B’s, and 1.5 C’s.
These figures show that there were
almost as many B’s and A’s as C’s
That the game of scbolar.ship,
sometimes left unseen in the long
procession of college activities, may
have a tiny bit of its due recogni
tion, -be it known that Mr. C. H.
Sullivan was the star student at
Mars Hill during the first semester
of the 1927-1928 school year when he
made a total of six A’s on as many
courses; Miss Pauline Fry ran a
clo.se second with five A’s and two
B’s, made on seven oour.ses; that
Misses Gladys Farmer and Irma Hen-
der.son tied for third place with four
A’s and one B each on five courses.
The other students who made high
grades are: Mrs. Gladys Willis, 3 A’s
and 3 B’s; James Baley, 4 A’s and 1
B; Maud Ashworth, 3 A’s and 2 B’s;
Walton Kitchen, 3 A’.s and 2 B’.s;
