BELIEVED SUCCESS

As The Hilltop goes to
press. President-emeritus R.
L. Moore, who is in the
Memorial hospital at Rich
mond, Virginia, is reported
to be recovering as well as
could be expected from his
operation of last Wednesday
morning.
At the hour of his opera
tion, as well as the night be
fore, the faculty and stu
dents united their prayers
for his welfare. All class
work and study were forgot-
i.en and all thoughts were
turned to the great Chris
tian leadei'.
Mrs. Moore and their son,
Ernest, of Enka, along with
Miss Velma Shaw, nurse at
the college, accompanied Dr.
Moore to Richmond. His
daughter, Mrs. Roberts, left
Tuesday night and arrived
in time for the operation.
His friends wish for him a
speedy recovery.

TWENTY-ONE MARS
ANNUAL BAPTIST
Dr. J. Clyde Turner, pastor of
the First Baptist church of
Greensboro, is the main speaker
at the revival meetings
now being held at Mars Hill col
lege. Rev. W. L. Lynch, pastor of
the Mars Hill Baptist church, is
presiding over these meetings.
Dr. Turner’s messages are most
heart-searching and stir one to
become an active, useful Chris
tian. He is emphasizing personal
loyalty to Christ and the saving
power of our Lord. It is hoped
that he may continue his stay
through ten or fourteen days.
Dr. Turner, by his sincere and
earnest messages, has established
for himself the reputation as
being the “TrueW’ of North
Carolina. Dr. Turner, in 1931,
was a speaker at the Baptist
World Alliance held in Toronto,
Canada.
This is the first of a series of
meetings held in the church since
it has been enlarged by the ad
dition of two balconies. These
balconies add approximately two
hundred seats to the present ca-

Dean Carr Honored
In a recent teachers meeting
in Asheville, Dean I. N. Carr was
chosen to represent higher edu
cational institutions on a com
mittee of three members. This if
a signal honor for our Dean and
for Mars Hill. Congratulations!
October leaves are sad to see
Their brilliant splendor all
ignored.
To realize they may not be
Permitted to remain the lord
Of beauty to their mother tree.
Reluctant fingers loose their hold
With rustlings of sad assent;
And shivering earth, with bosom
cold.
Lies listening to their last la
ment.
For here below at last they
meet—
A blanket for their mother’s feet.
