THE HILLTOP. MARS HILL COLLEGE, MARS HILL, N. C.
Was This Your Experience?
Never will I forget the day I first entered the great metropolis of
Mars Hill. My heart was in my mouth as I turned the corner to enter
the school and it slid in a slow thump when I caught glimpse of River-
My first thought was to turn
around and walk the other way,
but I checked that impulse. As I
traveled over the ground, I found
that the college was really attrac
tive. I especially liked the location
of the girls’ dorms upon the hill.
Little did I know how much
strength it would take to climb
that hill seven or eight or nine
times a day.
My first two weeks were an
experience that no one could af
ford to miss. I remember well the
day I went to register. They
handed me a card, gave me a
shove, and I was off. I really
thought I was "“off” before I was
through. Then as I glanced at my
card I saw the letter “W” before
one room number and I asked an
intelligent looking student beside
me just what that letter stood for.
She looked at me with a smile and
“Walk?” I exclaimed. But it
didn’t take me long to realize that
the girl was more than correct be
cause my classes in Wall have
proved to be one long hiking trip.
Of course, a place had been re
served on my card for Chapel, and
one helpful individual hasten to
explain that C-I’s are required to
attend Chapel every day and Sun
day School on Sundays. Saturday
came and I rushed to chapel and
found my seat. A girl was playing
at the organ, and I sat there for
ten minutes thinking that every
one was late today for some
reason. The girl finally turned and
asked me why I was sitting there.
When I told he she burst into a
big giggle and explained the mis
take to me. I retreated to the dorm
with a red face.
But the worst was yet to come.
I hurried to the cafeteria for my
dinner. After standing in line for
thirty minutes, I finally reached
the table and was about to pick
up my tray when a big boy walked
up to me and said, “What do you
think you are doing?”
“Why I’m getting my tray, I

They say that ignorance will
“out,” and it certainly did when I
went to put my tray on the rack.
Not knowing what the trayveyor
was for or how it worked, I just
put my dishes down the shaft.
When I heard them crash below, I
began to think that maybe I had
done something wrong. Mr. Martin
came rush'ng over toward me, and
when I told him my story, he was
only too glad to explain to me
how the dishes were carried down.
It took me some time to acquire
the skill that it takes to catch one
of those hooks.
But now I am well established
at Mars Hill, I have no more
trouble with helpful CH’s schedul
es or trayveyors. In fact, I have
learned so fast that many think
that I am a CII. I think that I
speak for the Cl class when I say,
“You’d better watch out, upper
classmen. We’re wised up and on
Wisdom consisteth not in
knowing many things, nor even in
knowing them thoroughly; but in
choosing and in following what
conduces the most certainly to our
lasting happiness and true glory.

“Oh! I mumbled, “I didn’t
know.” He left me standing there
for a moment and when he re
turned there was a long line of
people following him. Before I
knew what was happening I found
myself once more at the door with
no food. And every time I got in
line for the next few days I always
found myself eating with the last
group. This situation, however, was
remedied near the end of the two
weeks. It seems that my meal
ticket had not quite run out. This
could be because of the fact that
I never had time to eat a whole
meal. Not only was I allowed to go
first in line, but I had more com
panions to eat with. This sudden
popularity was something that I
had not counted on, but many
disllusioned girls were sympathiz
ing with me the following week.

good many husbands are spoiled
by mismanagement in cooking, and
so are not tender. Some women
act as if their husbands were blad

keep them constantly in hot water,

In selecting your husband, you
