Log Cabin Recreation Hall
Being Built on Campus
On the extreme northeastern section
of the campus, near the dean’s home,
the Y. M. C. A., under the direction of
Prof. J. C- Bonner, is constructing a
log cabin. It is to be used for the
club meeting and any other meetings
which the students see fit to have
there. The second story will be for
the accommodation of visiting teams-
The cabin is to resemble those of
pioneer days. It is to be two stories
high and 20 by 20 feet in diameter.
The lower floor is one large room with
means of dividing the space into small
er rooms, if necessary. The lower room
is being ceiled with the outside of
pine logs. There are two chimneys
and fireplaces on the south side which
also are to be covered on the outside
with pine logs-
The furniture and fixtures of this
room will be antique and some hand
made of pine wood.
The second floor has a space of 10
by 12 feet which is to be furnished for
a bedroom. This room is also being
ceiled with pine logs. There is a small
veranda on the north side with a stair
way' leading up to the second stoiy.
On the south and east sides, there are
two verandas about six feet wide-
Construction has recently been stop
ped because of the removal of the
CWA workers, but it will, neverthe
less, be completed at an early date.
At West Georgia College
Governor Eugene Talmadge will be
West Georgia’s first commencement
speaker. The exercises will be held on
th college campus Wednesday, June
6th at 10:30 A. M.
Since this was the first year of t e
college, no graduating class was ex
pected. Transfers, however, came in
from other schools and a class of twen
ty or more will receive their diplomas.
Chancellor Weltner is expected to
deliver the diplomas on this occasion-
The West Georgian
Students Discuss Requirements
The students in Home Economics
have been studying the interesting
topic of “The Place of Marriage and
Home in a Life Plan.”
When asked if they considered mar
riage a desirable state the answer was
unanimously in the affirmative. Then
arose the following problems for so
1. How to choose a life mate.
2. How best to prepare for success
ful married life.
3. What collegje experiences may
contribute to this aspect of life.
It is interesting to note a strong
similarity between the pictures of the
ideal husband and wife as given by the
boys and girls agreeing with Dr. Chase
going woodhouse, we arrived at a pic
ture of a “fine person:” “An affec
tionate, loyal, honest companion;
courteous, understanding, sympathetic
and cooperative; intelligent, with good
judgment and common sense; well
equipped to handle his particular job;
a person with an optimistic outlook,
capable of creating and of enjoying
happiness; a person with a modicum
of artistic appreciation and imagina
tion—in short, a person with quali
ties which make him easy to live with
and thoroughly worth while; in a word,
an ‘adequate personality.’ ”
To prepare for successful married
life the class decided:
1. To make a self-analysis for the
purpose of developing a more livable
2. To understand themselves suf
ficiently' so that they may judge wise
ly' the compatibility of a mate.
3. r JV <*t,nv3v tv,> r^y/-koio<*n 1 re

and try to develop them in themselves.
4. To acquire a basic knowledge of
the biological and ougenie aspects of

College experiences contributing to
The class decided with Dr. Paul
Popenoe that college offers, through its
social life, an opportunity for meeting
and associating Avith many types of
personalities, and thus gives wide ex_
perience for determining the qualities
in others best suited to one’s own. In
addition to the social side of college
life, students also have opportunities
in its academic and cultural side for
the development of interests, appre
ciations and skills bearing on various
phases of homelife.
Thus the biological sciences, sociol
ogy, psychology and home economics
find good reason for appearing in the
program of every student at Wdst
AT WEST GEORGIA
Dr. Cox, president of Emory Univer
sity, spoke at chapel exercises at West
Georgia College on March 2, 1934. The
coming of such a prominent educator
to the college was an honor of which
West Georgia is extremely proud.
When it was considered that five of
the faculty, Mr. Watson, Mr. Strozier,
Miss Weaver, Hiss Hart, and the pres
ident, Mr- Ingram, had all attended
Emory, the students wer e glad to wel
come Dr. Cox even more heartily.
Dr- Cox gave a splendid lecture on
“Education and Leisure.” His talk
was very interesting as well as very
appropriate for college students. The
text of his talk was this: “Blessed
is the man who knows how to loaf
without wasting his time.” This rath
er clever thought certainly appealed
to the students and gave them some
thing worthwhile to think about.
This college chapel program was one
of the most highly appreciated ones
of the school year. The students hope
that they will have the pleasure of
hearing Dr. Cox again very soon.

THE CHIEFTAIN HAS GONE
After much work by the staff and
faculty advisor, West Georgia’s an
nual, The Chieftain, is in the hand r.f
the printers and engravers and should
be ready for distribution by May l it.
The editor and business manager ha ,
had many compliments from repre
sentatives of both companies as to the
composition, arrangement, and thor
oughness of preparation of material.
The business staff met with good
success in soliciting advertisements.
This act will be of increased interest
to the students because of the fact that
this will decrease the cost of the an
nual to them. The cost to the stu
dents above the initial dollar deposit
already paid will be one and a half
($1.50). This is a very reasonable
amount, considering the cost of print
ing, engraving, etc.
The Chieftain will have a very at
tractive cover. It is made up of dull
red leather material with a black over
tone. A narrow cutout design runs
across the top with CHIEFTAIN in
gold letters. The same design is at
tlio bottom with 1934 in raised letters.
In the .center in a circular raised frame,
an Indian warrior gives the book an
original note, the Indian being the
emblem of the college- An Indian theme
is carried out throughout the book with
interesting pictures from Indian life
on the title pages.
The students are certain to be pleas
ed with this, the first yearbook of
West Georgia College. The editor,
Stewart Martin, and business manager,
Edgar Hc’ly, deserve groat praise for
the good work that they and their
staff hav© done.
“She Stoops to Conquer’ * to
Be Given by Dramatic Club
The Dramatic club will present “She
Stoops to Conquer,” by Oliver Gold
smith, as their second and final public
showing. Tryouts for this play will
begin Thursday evening, March 22.
This comedy was first presented in
London March 15, 1773. It first came
to this country August 2, 1773. Since
that time it has been shown in all
large places* It was first offered to
Coleman, then manager of Covert Gar
den, London, who refused it twice, and
finally only consented to put it into
rehearsal because he could not resist
the arguments of Dr. Samuel Johnson.
The leading actors in England refused
parts in this play, but it was the mak
ing of others when the public received
it so well.
It will cost a great deal for the Dra
matic club to put this play on because
of the costumes. Of course they have
no costumes, but after a performance
at the college auditorium it will be
taken to Carrollton and other towns.
The first presentation of the club was
so well received by every one that
they hope to have a good audience*
This play will be a good chance for
those have talent to make their debut
before the public. Training along
these lines is to be desired by any and
all. Only a few can be accepted.
ON FAIR COMMISSION
M’r. I. S. Ingram, President of West
Georgia College, has been appointed
on the Commission from Georgia to
the World Fair. This appointment
was made by the Governor of Georgia,
Mr. Eugene Talmadge. West Georgia
is extremely proud of her president’s
receiving this honor in addition to oth
