New Staff ToTake
Charge Next Issue
Beginning next issue the newly
elected Hilltop staff will take
charge of the paper to guide its
destinies for better or for worse
for the remainder of this year and
next year.
The next issue will likely be a
transitory one with the old staff
helping to a certain extent to
break the new staff in on their
posts. Following that issue there
will be one more Hilltop published
before the close of school, with a
post-Commencement issue coming
out a few days after the last ex
ercises. These will be mailed to
the students.
The old staff wishes to thank
every student who has contributed
to the pages of the Hilltop this
year and in casting our mantle
on the incoming staff members we
hope that they will profit by our
mistakes and may the fullest meas
ure of success be theirs.

Representing Mars Hill in the ex
temporaneous speakers contest was
Thomas Speed and in the After din
ner speaking contest C. B. Jones.
They made excellent speeches but did
not place in the tournament.
The delegates from Mars Hill were
said to have made unusually credit
able showings since they were placed
in competition with a large number
of both junior and senior colleges.
Especial mention should be given
Miss Newbrough for winning first
place in the oratorical contest over
the senior college representatives.
Robert Burnette, a former vice-
president of the Euthalian Literary
Society, a member of the college
tennis team, and one of the outstand
ing student figures on the Mars Hill
College campus was elected editor of
the Hilltop for the year 1933-34 by
popular student vote, Monday morn-
iiig’j April 10, at the chapel period.
Mr. Burnette was recommended by
the present Hilltop staff as being the
student most worthy and most com
petent to fill this editorial position,
a place which only the best must fill
since it is through the editorial col
umns of the Hilltop that student ex
pressions are made available to pa
trons, friends, former and prospec
tive students of the college.
Is Outstandingr Student
The editor-elect is an excellent
English student and is studying the
Journalistic course offered by the col
lege. Through his work with the Hill
top this year he has exhibited high
editorial ability that stamps him as a
man who will not take advantage of
the power he has of moulding outside
and student opinion to do discredit
to the college.
Mr. Burnette succeeds Falk John
son. son of Rev. and Mrs. Walter
N. Johnson, who has so capably sup
ported, inspired and aided the Hill
top .staff members during the year and
who has been one of the most de
pendable and readable ' contributors.
Mr. Johnson’s e'ditorials have been
reprinted and commented upon by
leading student and state newspapers
and other publications. Mr. Johnson
and his co-workers retire with this
issue to the new staff members who
will have charge of the publication
of the two subsequent editions.
Miss Hildreth Squires, a member of
the Clio Literary society and an out
standing student, especially in the
English department was elected to
be associated with Editor Burnette
as associate editor. She will have
charge of the feature department of
the Hilltop and assist with the edi
torial work. Miss Squires succeeds
Miss Hazel Herndon, a most depend
able and skilled contributor to the
columns of this paper.
Mark Orr To Be Managing Editor
Samuel J. Justice, active managing
editor of the Hilltop, who had charge
of its publication during the year and
to whom is due the major acknowl
edgement for its success will be suc
ceeded by Mark Taylor Orr who has
served this year as assistant managing
Mr. Justice in addition to having
done very commendably the technical
make-up and construction of the
Hilltop has been a regular consistent
