THE DATING SITUATION
Have you been puzzled by the
cheerful faces o. the Freshmen!
this week? perhaps so, but to ex
pi. in the reason of their happi
ness lies in these words - two
dales a week.
Everyone in the dormitory ap
preciates this privilege and shall
comply with rules that are made, j
It may seem that we have every-’
(hiti-, neee.ssar„* with which to en
certain our t'rieuas, but there still
remains one bit-; problem. Vila, to
do for entertainment? So far, U
has been supplied mainly with
con versa .ion and the playing oi a
few games We all would enoy
having a date with a well conv s
eil person, but as not al of us are
alike in that manner we would
li tie to have other types of enter
tainment. There have been' some
suggestions such as having new
types of games, some played by a
couple and others played in groups,
and to have some social activity
once a month in the gymnasium.

with the promise rhat other organ-'
inations would give us programs in
The services have been sponsor
ed by 1 rofessor Hart, and many
! evidences of the good work that is
| being done are prevalent. It gives
thse that are unable to attend ser
i vices elsewhere, or fail to, the op
i porfunity to cultivate the spiritual
! side of their characters.
This is a forward move for the
: betterment of the student body by
1 the faculty, and we are sure that
| the services will accomplish the
1 purpose for which they were in
augurat'd, namely to complete the
day's devotional services, * ami to
give aU a chance to experience
Christian fellowship right here on

THE WWT GEORGIAN
The Absence of
Tradition at West
Doubtless, one of 'he greatest
factors influencing our campus life
here at West Goor- ia College is an
obvious absence of tradition, and
the burden being put on us to
formulate our own traditions and
predecessors. It is a privilege for us
predecessors. It is a privilege to us
to be among the charter members
of this great institution. It is we
who will hold the reins; check the
Hood; and build this insntution in
to what it will be and should be.
We do not follow the example of
others, but use the ideas of our own
leaders; . <• are functioning as ex
No one has been before to what
i? now West Oeoigia College, It is
our God given duty to set its pace,
am; ?o .i hold high the noble
aspirations that w now seek. We
have a gigantic task before us. We
hardly know which way to face, as
we are facing problems that have
never before n encounered
here. We are the masters of this
institution's fate, and the captain
of Its soul.
We hold the torch now, to make
our deeds those of honor and no
bility, and to set a flame of love
for this institution in our heart?,
and make our lives here fit exam
ples for the oncomi’;. generations
to view, ami to consider intelli
gently, instead of some petty rule
that the student body might make.
This is our real task. We are fac
ing it with greatest forth mb and
interest, and have pledged our
selves to do our best.
It is a burning desire for us, the
first of the first, to set such pre
sidents that in after life it can be
said that we are a credit to the in
stitution, along with tiie institu
iior being a credit to us. We shall
always count thb fact of our being
the pace setters and the tradtion !
makers, ourselves, as one of the j
most cherished of our memories.
