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.

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.

VESPER SERVICE WINS STUDENT'S APPROVALS Vesper services have been in : augurated here on the campus; every .Sunday evening as a com-j jdetion of ih day's devotional sen v ices. Vt e have had programs given us by the 8.Y.1'.L. of the First Bap-, list Church, and by campus talent, , with the promise rhat other organ-' inations would give us programs in the future. 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 ?he cam ups. . THE WWT GEORGIAN The Absence of Tradition at West Georgiy College 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 ideals. 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 emplars now. 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. Inspiration At ! West Ge ullage 11 T a, eg” Te7t- Tkta action with inspiration., in this article VVI . v>ou : d ■ i, press noon every student oi tins in solution that. a college claims to give birth to in spiration. B ; iid - the young by its celebrity, kindle* He atieetions of the mi i'Oe; by it beauty and rivets sue fidelity of the old by its associations. It is the seat of wisdom, the light of the world, the alma mater of the rising gee ei at ion. It is this and much more, oid demand* a head and hand foi , red than mine to de ar; -V . all. What poet was able to write lines that blended in harmony who did not have beautiful inspiration in his heart and soul? A college is no: necesarily a birthplace of poets, immortal authors, founders of schools, or conquerors of na , ions; however inspiration has cer i a inly been proved the by-products of succes. Fon t lei someone knock the wind out of your sails, so to speak. Let your sails be so utterly filled with inspiration that the failures | that block your journey will be routed out. Our student body previously has shown outstandingly that it has been inspired. Perhaps each pupil has a definite origin for his i’lspi ration. But may we suggest that! not matter by whom or by wiia iacftHive you have been inspired, let that stand foremost in your character chart forever. It is the .rail that makes you become elo quent and exponent of your art in its most winning form, and give you the means of pouring your work forth with zeal and enthus iasffi. Learn to appreciate your value-. Be inspired by someone or some thing. Do not let any small disap pointment discourage you but keep your ideals. We care nothing for a student that merely resides at an institu tion, yawns and says: “Why should I study?” If there is some one here w ho seems flippant or un fair, his pin o is not at Wes' Geor gia College. We have yet to find a student here of that nature. Was it not David Slarr Jordan who said.
