That the Mars Hill football team
will be state champions is no idle
fancy. The Lions have a chance to
prove this when they latch onto the
team from Lees-McRae in a home
coming game here this Saturday, 4
Elaborate preparations are being
made to mark this home-coming
game as the Brightest spot in Mars
Hill football history. A special
cheering section is being organized
with colored cards and megaphones,
parades and a band spirit is being
stirred up by pep meetings being
held in the college auditorium. Ar
rangements at the athletic sward are
being completed for a larger crowd
than has attended a game at Mars
Hill in years.
The faculty and student body of
Mars Hill College were afforded a
great privilege and pleasure on
Saturday afternoon and again Satur
day night in the college auditorium
when Laurance Clarke presented
Madame Borgny Hammer and her
players in two of Ibsen’s plays, “The
Master Builder,’’ and “Ghosts.”
These plays were written by Henrik
Ibsen, a Norwegian, who is famous
for his drama. He has written many
plays, and the outstanding char
acteristic of his plays is the great
moral lessons which each one por
“Master Builder”
At 2:15 in the afternoon, the
players presented “The Master
Builder.” This is the story of a
builder who was very much afraid
of the progress of the younger
generation. By some Divine power,
a young girl comes in contact with
him and with her aid he strives to
overcome the fear of the younger
generation. He finally does this; but
it is not God’s will that he be suc
cessful throughout life, so in the end
he climbs to great heights but falls
immediately. We can learn from
this play that without God’s help, we
can accomplish nothing.
At 8:15 in the evening, the players
presented ‘Ghosts,” a drama in three

Lions at Top Strength
To eliminate all the burrs from
his charges Coach Robert is groom
ing his team with a fine comb in
anticipation of the stiff opposition to
be encountered Saturday. With few
men on the injured row, the Lions
will be able to display practically
their top strength in the coming
game. Nettles, heady and speedy
Lion quarterback who generally fur
nishes the spark to the Mars Hill at
tack, is being groomed for heavy
duties. Other crack backfield men
are Bailey, bullet passer and charging
halfback; Rabb, toe artist and block
ing halfback, and Fox, pile-driving
fullback, who is very difficult to down
once he gets started. Other back-
field men showing ability are Bunker,
Perry, Anderson, Huff, Lawrence and

Prospects for a Laurel at Mars
Hill College this year are dark if the
opinion of the faculty members is
respected. Last year the college an
nual fell into financial difficulties,
from which it has not arisen.
$400 Debt
It is estimated that the Laurel
owes over $400 on last year’s books.
College authorities feel that no an
nual should be issued until the ex
penses of the previous year have
been met.
Little work has been accomplished
this year toward continuing the year
book. However, Mr. L. C. Chiles,
has been elected Editor-in-Chief,
with Mr. Bill Martin as Business
Manager. The two boys have at
tempted various plans to finance a
new Laurel and have worked hard to
collect the money due, but as yet
no definite understanding has been
reached between publishers and staff
Different organizations on the
campus still owe on the last year’s
Laurel. It is the hope of this year’s
staff that an agreement can yet be
reached with the publishers. But if
is only with the support of the stu
dents of Mars Hill collectively in
clubs and societies and individually
that the plan can be realized.
1934 Book Doubtful
If the groups and individuals who
owe the Laurel anything will nay as
soon as possible, the new staff and
interested friends believe that Mars
Hill College will not be without a
Laurel next June.
In attempting to discover the feel
ing of the students on this matter.
The Hilltop has published a ballot
concerning the continuance of the
Laurel. If every student votes, an
accurate opinion of the student body
will be available. Everyone is asked
to vote and place the ballot in the
box designated for such in the ad
ministration building lobby.
