YESTERDAY Hr.

If all rumors are correct, Collett’s girl is suing him for divorce, claiming desertion. ** * * After much snooping and asking of questions, this writer has discovered a large number of the studnts have secret sorrows. Here they are are: Major casts long, affectionate glances at Marjie Trice every time she passes. Mamie goes flitter, flutter every time she sees Lovvom Gently* Rabbi is that way over Adeline. Blanche has fallen for Don Staples, but don’t tell Bever ley. We advise all these and any oth er love-sick West Georgians to let Seri ous Sal help them to win the object of their affections. ** * * The chemistry professor says that tho University system is going to take the new freshmen on a joy-ride during their first year to let them see which courses are what and to let them de cide which they wish to take. My Dad said I should wait a year! Here’s onc e that he was right, oh, how right! ** * * I promised last time to give you all the dirt on the West-Upshaw case, but up to this writing, they are On good terms and will not give each other away. However, I guess you heard .what Gqjc 1 * said Die Hiking Plnb’s party Friday night? ** * * If the humor editor of the “West Georgian ’ ’ keeps up as he is going now, , the jokes won’t be written (because ho spends so much time with a certain voujng lady. We saw them in the corner at the party). ** * * It is rumored that one of the Floyds is seen in town in the evening quite often nowadays. ** * * Did you know that this new fresh man is giving one of the boys a flut ter, He has, alas, had his hair cut and she doesn’t like it. He is figuring on the quickest way to get his beauti ful locks restored and is about to re sort to a wig. ** * # All these boys with their military haircuts remind us of a onion.

Needless to say ‘he received a very hearty and heartfelt applause. ** * * The reason that Mr. Watson is so opposed to the word “gaudy” is that in his (hildhood days the negroes on ids father’s farm ,could not say Gor don—so, they said “Gaudy.” ** * * Seen on the campus: Bob Strozier smoking a cigar; Tom Hart with anew haircut; “Billy” Driver wearing eol- Ored glasses. ** # * We wonder if Hazel is planning to .loin the nudist colony, especially on Tuesday nights?

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. Governor Talmadge Commencement Speaker 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 for Marriage 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 lution: 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 personality. 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 quirements of personal relationships and try to develop them in themselves. 4. To acquire a basic knowledge of the biological and ougenie aspects of marriage as well as the social and emo tional. College experiences contributing to married life: 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 Georgia- EMORY PRESIDENT 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. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 1934 THE CHIEFTAIN HAS GONE TO PRESS 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. INGRAM APPOINTED ON FAIR COMMISSION FROM GEORGIA 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 er important offices which he already holds. HIKING CLUB HONORS BRAVES WITH SOCIAL The Braves, West Georgia’s basket ball team, was honored with a social rponored by th e Girls’ Hiking Club on Friday evening, March 9, 1934. The Glub entertained as its guest the members of the faculty and th e student body. This event marked the close of West Georgia’s first basketball season which has been considered unusually successful. Acting as host and hostess of this gay occassion were Mr. Sam Fields, captain of th 0 basketball team, and Miss Inez Suddeth, president of the Hiking c!ub. This social was given in the audi torium of the administration building. Ample space was provided by removing the chairs. The room was beautifully decorated with West Georgia colors, roya’ blue and crimson red. Winding streamers floated from the shaded which cast a pleasant glow* Collegiate pennants, representing every school which the Braves have played, adorned the walls. The orchestra from Bremen occupied the stage. Excellent music was furnished throughout the overling. The most important feature of the evening was the award of letters to the members of the basketball team. Coach Bonner summed up each player with his clever humor as he awarded the letters. Those receiving letters for athletic attainment in basketball were as follows: Sam Fields, captain of the team; Charles Almon, guard; Don Staples, forward; Mondoll Driver, guard; Jewell Taylor, guard; N<weJl Talyor, forward; Beverly Campbell, guard; Harvey Glazier, forward; Da mon Webb, guard; and Judson Heaxn, guard.

Th© Grand March, followed by the Virginia Reel and the Grand Right and Left opened tho evening’s entertainment- The Grand March was led by Miss Inez Suddeth with Mr- Don Barfield and Mr. -Sain Fields with Miss Grace Echols.
