Chandler^ Wally Burnett and

Loses To Bell
The Mars Hill and Weaver tennis
seasons were launched when the Lions
took a 5-2 count over the Tornado
racquet swingers.
Chandler Leads
Coach Vernon Wood’s charges
were led by Chandler, newcomer
on Whelp’s roster, who played
No. 1 man and downed Boney,
Tornado’s initial lad, in straight
sets 6-0, 6-3. While Chandler was
making short work of his man,
Wilkins, lead-off ace of last sea
son, lost a tough match to Bell,
Weaver’s flashy captain, 4-6,
Wall Shines
With the exception of one double
match the Lions made a clean sweep
from here on. The only perfect set
score of the day turned in by Sidney
Wall, member of last season’s squad,
who trounced Felmet G-0, 6-0. In the
other matches R. Burnett, Mars Hill,
won over Lopez 6-3, 6-0. Stroupe,
Mars Hill, won over Cochrane 6-2,
6- 4.
Split Doubles
In the two double matches Mars
Hill took one while Weaver took her
second victory of the day in the final
match. Bunker and S. Burnett, Mars
Hill, won over Bell and Lopez 7-5,
7- 5, while Boney and Felmet, Weaver,
rallied in the final sets to win 5-7,
6-0, 6-3.
Both teams made a mighty good
showing in the season’s initial play
and both were greatly handicapped
'by the strong wind that hampered
their, game.

No Business Manager Chosen
A Business Manager to succeed C.
B. Jones will not be elected until
next year when students will be elect
ed to fill the assisting managing ed

Mr Jones has been, it is .said, the best
Business Manager the Hilltop has ev
er had. He has found it his duty
to solicit advertisements during a
period when merchants were very
slow about buying newspaper space.
He has kept the advertising space
of the paper well filled and is to be
highly commended for his work.

For those who do not know, that i>er-
son is Mr. J. R. Sams who now lives
with his sister, Mrs Anderson.
Since Mr. Sams has been connected
with the institution he* has always
been among the foremost in giving,
both labor and money. When he enter
ed school in 1866 the storm of the
Givil War had just passed and little
money could be found anywhere. He
helped in reverting the old house
back in livable condition, and had
been enrolled only two years until
the position of president was given
As a benefactor Mr. Sams gave
much of the land that today com
prises the campus. He gave generous
ly to the old church and has lent a
very definite part in the erection of
several buildings that .still stand.
Four of his children and five grand
children have attended college here.
Their father is listed as one of the
“builders of Mars Hill.”

out first the generous heart.”

It was in the fall of 1915 that I
entered Mars Hill. I often think of my
first impre.ssion. It has been with me
ever since. The impression of the
spirit of Mars Hill. There is some
thing about it that makes you love it.
This spirit I found later to be found
not only on the campus but else
where, for wherever the Mars Hill
boys and girls meet that spirit is
Money and buildings do not make
a school. Of course they are neces
sary. but where a great spirit such as
is found at Mars Hill is found the
financial side can be taken care of.
So the alumni must realize that we
must protect our Alma Mater.
One of the best ways to do
this is by constant every day living
the great principles for which our
Alma Mater upholds.
Mars Hill is worthy of being per
petuated. The ideals for which she
has always fought are those which
