Page Four THE HILLTOP. MARS HILL COLLEGE, MARS HILL, N. C. Nov. IIJ N 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- mont. 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 said, “walk!” “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 ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★ I ■¥ I ■¥ ■¥ ■¥ * t -K ■* t t ■k ■k ■k •k ■k ■k ■k ■k t ■k ■k ■k ■k For The Smartest Styles In Men’s Wear see DAVID’S MEN’S STORE 5 Haywood Street Phone 2-2098 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 our toes.” —Earline Collier. 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. —Landor. t WHY NOT TRY t I WYATT’S i I FOR FRIENDLY SERVICE? | Fre»h Groceries •j- And Meats -I Asheville ...

Recipe For Good Spouse stammered, “I’m getting my tray.” "Well, I’m sorry,” he spoke up, “You’ll have to let me go first. You’re supposed to let all CII’s eat first.” “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. MHC Art Club Holds Monthly Meeting Mars Hill Art Club members held their second monthly meeting in the Art studio at 4:30 Friday, November 4, Lamar Brigman presi ding.

Home Economics students study ing home preparations of foods have agreed on the following re ceipt. “How To Cook Husbands:” A good many husbands are spoiled by mismanagement in cooking, and so are not tender. Some women act as if their husbands were blad ders, and they blow them up. Many keep them constantly in hot water, in a stew, or in the roasting pan. In selecting your husband, you should not be guided by his silvery appearance as in buying a macke rel. Be sure to select him your self acording to your own tastes. Do not go to the market for him; the best is always brought to the door. dill]) Comiiieiiltso N( Honor clubs of MHC met for the second time this year Monday and Tuesday, November 7 and 8.
