this we reply, ‘We are going because
Jesus asked us to. We love Him
and want to do something for Him.

Senior Cheer Leaders Elected; Sen
iors Express Support to Laurel.
Staff Urges Cooperation For 100%
Support of Annual.
At the meeting of the C-II Class
on Thursday, October 1, Martha Stack
was elected chief cheer leader and
:harles Alexander assistant. With
Tom Moore, vice-president, presiding,
everal matters of business were
brought before the class.
An appeal was made by Bruce
Grainger for the full co-operation of
he seniors in support of the “Laurel.”
A large number signified the intent
ion of having pictures in this year’s
annual. All were urged to pay the
fee of two dollars as soon as possible,
in order that the engraving might be
done at less expense.
William McLester, editor-in-chief,
briefly summarized the history and
growth of Mars Hill’s annual, and
showed copies of the different forms
it has taken during its various stages.
He stressed the advantages of own
ing a “Laurel.”
Willard Griggs brought to the at
tention of the class a bill charged to
his account for tools misplaced at the
Junior-Senior Reception. A commit
tee was appointed to look into the
Sponsor- “Daddy” Blackwell ex
pressed his delight at the splendid
class spirit manifested at the meet
ing, which had the largest attendance
yet attained.
With Bill McLester as editor-in-
chief, work on the 1931-32 edition
of the “Laurel” has been started. In
dividual student pictures will be made
in the next few weeks. Mr. String-
field, who is to make the pictures, is
ready at any time; so as soon as fi
nancial arrangements are completed,
this work will begin. Every student
is urged to have his picture put in
the “Laurel,” thus making an edition
as complete as possible.
The co-operation of the entire stud
ent body is essential to the success
of the annual. If each member will
do his part by paying now the small
payment asked for, he will enable
the staff to receive a large dicsount
n the engraving, therefore lessening
the cost of the “Laurel.”
The editor and all his co-workers
pledge themselves and devote their
entire resources to the production of
the best annual Mars Hill has ever
produced and are depending on the
student body to back them up by
their hearty co-operation.
Soon after the beginning of each
new semester, many begin to look
forward to seeing or hearing the
names of those who, in return for
their many efforts in making those
coveted and necessary grades, receive
