HISTORY AND PURPOSE
Southern Missionary College is owned and oper-
ated by the Southern Union Conference of Seventh-
day Adventists which maintains headquarters at
Decatur, Georgia. The Southern Union Conference
embraces the states of Kentucky, Tennessee, North
and South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia,
and Florida. Although the college primarily serves
the young people of these states it also accepts stu-
dents from other states and from foreign countries.
Southern Missionary College is a four-year co-
educational arts and science college authorized to
confer baccalaureate degrees. In addition, a number
of two-year terminal curriculums are available for
the benefit of students with specialized vocational
Briefly stated, the objectives of the college are to
provide standard instruction and broad educational
opportunities, under the most favorable circum-
stances, to such ambitious and purposeful Christian
youth as can profit by them.
Southern Missionary College is located two and
a half miles from Ooltewah, Tennessee, just off the
Lee Highway No. 11. Both the Southern and the
Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis railways serve
this region for which Chattanooga is the chief
terminal. Frequent bus service throughout the day
provides ample transportation facilities. The postal
and express address is Collegedale, Tennessee.
YOUR SCHOOL HOME
Residence requirements. Ordinarily all unmarried
students whose parents or legal guardians do not
reside in the immediate vicinity are required to live
in the residence halls. Only by special arrangements
may students under sixteen years of age or in the
first two years of high school (grades nine and ten)
be accepted as resident students. Exceptions to
these requirements may be made only by the Ad-
What to bring. If you expect to reside in one of
the residence halls you will want to make your room
as comfortable and attractive as possible. Keep in
mind that this will be your home while you are at
college. If possible before making important pur-
chases, consult your roommate, so that there will not
be duplications and that your room furnishings may
blend well together.
Your room will probably contain two single beds,
a table, two chairs, a book case, two chests of draw-
ers and a closet. Rugs and draperies are not fur-
nished by the college.
The essential furnishings you will need will in-
clude four sheets, two pillow cases, a pillow, a bed
spread, adequate bedding, dresser scarfs, towels,
coat hangers, soft soled bedroom slippers, an electric
iron (for young women), a bath robe, suitable school
and work clothes and curtains for two windows.
The curtains should be approximately two and a
half yards long.
In addition to these essentials the following
items might be desirable: a lamp, flashlight, pictures,
drinking glass, soap dish, shower clogs, an alarm
clock, shoe racks or shoe bags, sewing kit, vases,
garment bags, and a hat box.
Care of your room. Rooms should be maintained
in such order as to pass the inspection of the resi-
dence hall dean at any time. When rooms are
vacated they should be left clean, with walls, wood-
work, and furniture undamaged. Nails should not
be driven into walls or woodwork.
Room courtesy. Those who reside in the residence
halls of the college must be respected in their right
to privacy in their own rooms. No student should
enter another's room when the occupants are absent
or without permission, nor in any way molest the
property of others.
Persons who do not reside in the residence halls
are reminded that these living quarters are not open
to the public, and that should they wish to visit a
student the customary courtesy will be expected as
if they were calling at any other private home.
At S M C running in the corridors, rude shout-
ing and calling out of the windows are not in good
Study periods. In the residence halls study periods
are observed each evening, Sunday through Thurs-
day. That such periods may result in maximum bene-
fit, quiet is maintained throughout. This excludes
the playing of musical instruments; local telephone
calls are discountenanced; and visitors are asked not
to call for students after the study period begins.
"Lights out" is synonymous with "quiet please."
Radios. Experience has demonstrated that radios
interfere with the students' scholastic advancement
and often transgress the rights of other. Therefore
the college does not encourage students to bring radios
to school. However, provision has been made whereby
a student who wishes to use a radio in his room may
apply to the dean of women or the dean of men to
do so under controlled conditions. Failure to live up
to the terms of the agreement will result in for-
feiture of the privilege.
Boarding students are not expected to leave the
campus without making proper arrangements with
their work supervisor and residence hall dean. Not
only is this requirement essential from the standpoint
of proper decorum and management, but many unex-
pected visitors and emergency phone calls are received
and the college management is expected to know the
student's whereabouts at all times.
Resident students who are responsible to parents
or guardians will be granted overnight leave of
absence to visit in private homes upon an invitation
from host or hostess, and with the authorization of
parents or guardians. Requests for leave are pre-
sented to the dean of the respective residence hall.
However, overnight leaves must also be approved
by the dean of the college. Permission for trips to
Chattanooga will be granted when arrangements
have been made with the residence hall dean.
Parents of boarding students are urged to refrain
from making frequent requests for students to come
home or to visit friends, since such absences inter-
fere with the school program. In all cases where
parents desire sons or daughters to come home, or
visit friends, request should be made to the residence
hall dean concerned. Ordinarily permission for leave
of absence will be granted not more frequently than
once in four weeks. Except in cases of emergency,
no permissions are granted for week-end leaves
during a Week of Prayer.
FIREARMS AND FIREWORKS
For obvious reasons all forms and types of
firearms and fireworks are out of order and not
premitted at S M C.
Because of the fire danger involved, kerosene
lamps, candles, alcohol stoves and matches are not
used in student rooms. The residence halls are not
wired in such a way as to permit the use of hot
plates, toasters, or electric heaters and such use in-
volves a real fire hazard.
The fire escapes are to be used for no purpose
except for fire drill or fire.
Fire extinguishers must not be tampered with as
they must be ready at all times for immediate
Carelessness in leaving personal property in pub-
lic places is discouraged. One of the accepted practices
of S M C is proper care of personal property as
well as the scrupulous avoidance of interference with
the property rights of others. The proper use and
preservation of college property, the buildings, books
and furnishings is emphasized, that good citizenship
habits may carry over into later life.
The college does not take responsibility for per-
sonal property left behind or stored in the buildings.
Students and management have reason to be
proud of the campus at S M C. All who use the
campus are urged to observe care in preserving its
natural beauty and assist in keeping it scrupulously
clean. A sincerely friendly atmosphere prevails
and the simple courtesies that apply to everyday
living anywhere are always in order.
Students living in the residence halls should not
bring to the college or use automobiles, motorcycles,
or motor scooters. A list of regulations regarding the
use of motor vehicles is available for students who
live outside the school homes and who may desire to
drive on the campus. Penalties for the violation of
this regulation includes fines, suspension from school
As a church related college in which personal
religion is emphasized, SMC has made provision
for this vital part of the student's life. The splendid
location of the college among the beauties of nature,
and the spiritual atmosphere engendered by devoted
students and spiritually-minded staff members, pro-
vides an incentive to each individual to find and
maintain a personal connection with God through
his own private devotions.
Daily worship. The spiritual growth of the
student is fostered through the medium of daily
worship periods. Morning worship is held in the
college chapel. Evening worship is conducted in
the respective residence halls. Because of the recog-
nized importance of these services every member of
each residence hall is expected to attend regularly.
Sabbath observance. In harmony with Adventist
principles, SMC recognizes and observes the
seventh day of the week as the Sabbath. This day of
rest is observed from sundown Friday until sundown
Saturday. In accord with the sacredness of the day,
the school family engages in public worship, rest and
various Christian activities. These include seminars
on religious topics, vespers, Sabbath school, and
church services. Sabbath afternoons provide time for
taking walks, reading religious books and periodicals,
writing missionary letters, group singing, visiting the
sick or the aged and for engaging in missionary
service as sponsored by the Missionary Volunteer
WEEK OF PRAYER
The Weeks of Prayer, one in the spring and
one in the fall, offer opportunities for special spiritual
emphasis. During these two weeks class work is
somewhat reduced. Opportunity is given through the
ministry of outstanding religious leaders for the
individual examination of the personal life, and for
YOUR SOCIAL LIFE
It is the purpose of the college to give
each student guidance in the development of a well
integrated personality. To do this there must be
opportunity of associating with others. In the
residence halls, class rooms,' and cafeteria, students
will find many occasions to make a large circle of
acquaintances and to share in a pleasant and enjoy-
able campus life.
The Social Activities Committee plans the Satur-
day night programs. These include music, lyceums,
motion pictures, and lectures. Student groups may
also plan social gatherings for themselves on "open"
Each school year, the two residence hall clubs en-
tertain each other with an open house and a banquet-
reception. On these and several other occasions each
year, it is proper to dress formally. However, formal
dress is not required and you will always find some
students and faculty members in street attire at these
No condition or circumstance in life offers a
better opportunity than do the associations at college
for developing satisfying friendships. Since the
friends you make during your college days almost
certainly will be your most lasting friends, it will be
to your permanent advantage to choose them well.
At college the old adage, "a man is known by the
company he keeps" is doubly true. By making many
well-selected and lasting friendships you can establish
a good reputation and gain the rich benefits of up*
lifting associations. Perhaps already you realize that
noble, high-minded fellow students are stimulating
and inspiring in their influence upon your life.
Escorting at Saturday night programs, and at
certain other social occasions is in order. Escorting
is not in order from Friday night, sundown, to
Saturday night. Young men may be received in
the ladies' parlor from 6:10 to 6:50 p.m. Sunday
through Thursday. Couples who make themselves
conspicuous by loitering on the campus, strolling off
the campus or sitting together in religious services
are out of harmony with the standards of S M C.
When escorting is in order the young man
should notify the lady as to the time he will call for
her and the young lady should not fail to be ready
when he calls.
The young man meets the lady at her residence
hall, accompanies her to the appointment and sees
her directly and safely home afterward. Lingering
at the entrance of the ladies' home is not in good
Mixed groups planning social functions should
submit their plans in writing to the Dean of
Women and Dean of Men in ample time for con-
sideration and approval. It is understood that without
the sanction of these deans no changes in personnel
are to be made after approval is granted.
Occasions requiring chaperons. Chaperons are re-
quired for the following: picnics, informal social
gatherings, hikes; off -campus lectures, concerts, and
religious activities; mixed groups leaving or re-
turning by automobile at vacation time. A young
lady living in the women's residence hall may go
riding in mixed groups with her parents or with
faculty members by permission from the Dean of
Selecting chaperons. It is the responsibility of the
Dean of Women to approve or to disapprove those
suggested as chaperons. Ordinarily faculty members
will be approved. For certain functions older mar-
ried students may serve at the discretion of the Dean
of Women. Parents are always considered satisfac-
tory chaperons for their own daughters.
Providing a chaperon. It is the responsibility of
the young man (or young men) concerned to arrange
for a chaperon. The college ordinarily requires one
chaperon for each fifteen students.
Responsibility of student to chaperon. Good
form requires that the chaperon be regarded as a
guest. Admission ticket, fare and other expenses
involved are borne by the students, usually the young
man (or young men) concerned. Courtesy requires
ready response to any suggestion of the chaperon (s)
regarding conduct, procedure, hour of departure or
other matters. When a group is involved, the person
making the request must provide the chaperon with
a properly approved list of names.
Responsibility of chaperon. It is the duty of
chaperons to inform themselves that preliminary
arrangements are definite and explicit, and to meet
the group at the place designated. Chaperons are
expected to handle emergencies and to deal with
irregularities or accidents, and to return the group at
the hour designated.
Automobile parties. Mixed automobile parties
planned without proper permission and chaperonage
are not in keeping wjth the standards of S M C.
YOU AND YDUft STANDARDS
In order to maintain the highest Christian stand-
ards SMC does not knowingly admit or retain a
student who offends by stealing; willful deception
regarding violations of college regulations including
dishonesty in examinations or class work; gambling,
betting, possessing or using playing cards or other
gambling devices; dancing, or attending theatres,
pool halls or bowling alleys; using or possessing
alcoholic beverages, narcotics or tobacco or furnish-
ing them to others; using profane or vulgar language;
indulging in lewd conduct or suggestions; displaying
or possessing obscene literature or pictures; meeting
persons of the opposite sex in any deliberately
secretive or clandestine manner; disseminating atheis-
tic ideas or undermining the religious ideals of the
While dress is ultimately an individual matter,
good sense and good taste require that certain gen-
eral standards be taken into consideration as you plan
your wardrobe. Modesty in dress for both men and
women is the rule on this campus. Conservative
attire is not only considered good taste but it is
highly desirable from the standpoint of economy
and the impression it gives to others. Good form
requires that young men wear neckties to all reli-
gious services. Coats may be discarded when the
weather is very hot. Those who work around the
college public buildings should wear shirts. Neat

and appropriate attire is expected for attendance at
the dining hall. Since Seventh-day Adventists accept
the Biblical standard regarding the wearing of such
jewelry as rings, bracelets, lockets and earrings, it is
expected that all S M C students will conform to this
The standards of the college exclude the ap-
parent use of make-up. Young women are expected
to observe this practice.
Good taste indicates that women shall wear hose
at general office work and at religious services. Ex-
ceptions include those at work at the furniture fac-
tory, the broom shop, and while taking part in
physical education classes.
By no other single factor is a college more
properly and accurately judged than by the off-
campus conduct of its students. During vacation
periods you and your college will be largely judged
by your manners, dress, conduct and general influ-
ence. SMC students are therefore encouraged to
maintain the standards and ideals of their college
when, during vacation periods, they return to their
homes and to their local churches and as they come
into contact with relatives and friends.
YOU AND YOUR STUDIES
The services of a technically trained and well
qualified professional counselor are available to
those who may desire vocational or social guidance.
General assistance for all students is provided by
eight or ten carefully chosen counselors who devote
several hours each week to individual conferences
All students participate in the general testing
program which includes measures of scholastic apti-
tude, reading proficiency, social adjustment and voca-
tional proficiency. The current bulletin carries full
information on this counseling service.
Of recent years much importance has been at-
tached to the book collection as the heart and center
of learning on a college campus. S M C is proud
of its beautiful new Daniells Memorial Library. The
building is modern in every respect and is comfort-
ably furnished and well equipped. Students are
encouraged to take advantage of these splendid
library privileges. Here are the finest opportunities
for personal development in preparing class assign-
ments, research work, and for recreational reading.
The library is in a real sense a "service" department,
and the library staff serves the entire student body
and staff personally and impartially.
In order that each student may be protected in
his study rights, lounging or visiting is not permitted
in the library.
Selecting books. By reference to the card rile you
can readily locate any volume in the library. A free
leaflet gives full information and explains the pro-
cedure for securing a book. Most books may be
checked out for two weeks. If you have difficulty
the attendant at the main desk will gladly help you.
Reference materials. Reference materials such as
dictionaries, encyclopedias, yearbooks and handbooks
are to be used only in the library and may not be
checked out. Reference books, current periodicals
and bound volumes of periodicals must be used
within the library. Unbound back numbers of
magazines may be borrowed for one day.
Open reserve books. Open reserve books are
those which may be checked out for a period of not
more than three days.
Closed reserve books. Closed reserve books are
those which may be taken out for only one hour
during the day, or for overnight.
Circulation regulations. A student is held re-
sponsible for books or other library materials checked
out in his name until such time as they are returned
to the library.
The importance of faithfulness in class attendance
cannot be over-estimated. Absences from scheduled
classes, appointments, or conferences jeopardize scho-
lastic progress. The experience of thousands of
college students has conclusively demonstrated that
scrupulous attention to class appointments contributes
immeasurably to student progress and success. Regu-
lations governing class attendance appear in the
Textbooks, workbooks, notebooks, and other
auxiliary learning materials are available at the
College Store. Used textbooks in good condition may
be repurchased by the College Store at a reasonable
YOUR STUDY HABITS
Experience has proved that a regular routine of
study produces maximum results. Quietness, propel
lighting and pleasant surroundings contribute to
fruitful efforts. Although study is in order and
necessary during the student's free periods through-
out the day, the evening study period is especially
suited for individual study during which time all
students are expected to maintain quiet so that these
nours may be of maximum benefit.
YOUR OCCUPATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
Southern Missionary College cordially welcomes
you to its industrial program. This work program
has been provided to help you defray your school
expenses and to give you practical training which in
many respects is of as much benefit as the academic
The work program actually enables students to
"earn as they learn." A certain amount of work
is necessary for the operation of the college. Instead
of hiring a large number of non-student, full-time
workers, most of the work has been reserved for
students. In addition to the general work program
at the college the following large industries were
established to provide work for students: the College
Press, the broomshop, the woodshop, the farm, the
garden and the dairy.
All college or academy students living in the
school homes are urged to spend a minimum of six
hours per week in physical labor. Many students
work more than this according to the financial plan
under which they are registered. Non-residence-hall
students are furnished such work as the college is
able to provide.
YOUR WORK RESPONSIBILITIES
As a student you should recognize that work
assignments are as important as class assignments
and that they constitute an essential part of the
financial plan under which you are enrolled. In case
ot sickness or unavoidable absence you should con-
tact your work supervisor and make proper arrange-
ments for a substitute worker and/or for make-up
work later* Work absences must be held to an
absolute minimum and allowed only when definite
arrangements have been agreed upon with the
supervisor in advance. In case ot illness, you should
report to the health service at once for treatment so
that proper records can be made of the illness.
Every effort will be made to assign you to an
industry or a service department where you will be
satisfied, but the college cannot assign you where
work is not available nor can it always shift you
from one assignment to another upon request
Ordinarily you will be assigned to a particular
department, and you will be expected to remain
there for the entire school year.
YOU AND YOUR flEMION
A sound physical constitution and vigorous health
are impossible without relaxation and bodily exercise.
Upon becoming a student of S M C you should
arrange your personal program realizing that fresh
air and exercise are conducive to a strong active
mind and a noble character.
S M C, through its allied industries, provides an
abundance of work for students, many of whom
find physical labor a means of refreshment for
mind and body. To those who work, useful physical
labor provides a source of income and invigorating
exercise, develops a spirit of self-reliance, and en-
courages habits of industry.
In addition to the abundant opportunities for
physical labor the campus is situated so as to pro-
vide adequate recreational facilities. Hiking oppor-
tunities are unexcelled, with rugged terrain and
mountain trails of great scenic beauty on every hand.
The large College Auditorium provides ample area
under roof for marching and roller skating. There
are courts for basket ball, volley ball, and tennis.
The outdoor athletic field is properly equipped and
lighted for night as well as daylight soft and hard
baseball and other open field games.
All organized play is under the general super-
vision of the Health and Recreation Committee and
is confined to the times and places scheduled by
authority of this committee.
Picnics of college classes may be approved by
the President's Council when a written request,
stating time, place and chaperons, is presented at
least two weeks before the proposed occasion. Unless
special permission is granted, all off-campus picnic
groups should be back on campus by dark. Picnicking
groups do not leave the campus before 7:00 a.m.
All class picnics, with the single exception of
the college senior class picnic, are limited to the
class membership except that the husband or wife
of any class member is included in any class picnic
or social occasion.
Wholesome and inspiring music may be a source
and influence of great benefit; cheap and sensual
music has the power to debase and to induce great
harm. At S M C every effort is exerted to encourage
a taste for the finest and highest forms of music.
The musical programs contribute to the develop-
ment of an appreciation for the best secular and
sacred compositions of the past as well as those of
As a student at S M C you will have access to a
large variety of books embracing the finest literary
productions of all time. Here you will have oppor-
tunity to store your mind with gems of truth and
beauty. In college you can build reading habits
that will determine your choice of literature in later
life. As an educated person you will want to
acquaint yourself with the best as tested by literary
standards; as a Christian you will reject reading
matter which may be detrimental to your personal
The best standards rule out cheap novels and
The opportunities for student participation m
extra-curricular activities are unusually rich and
varied at Southern Missionary College. The college
fosters activities which stimulate student participa-
tion as a means of developing leadership and ex-
perience in group cooperation and achievement. On
the principle that young people should learn to do
by doing, this activity prepares the participants to
render a definite and effective service to society.
This extra-class activity is an integral, indispensable
phase of student life and offers a means of self-
development of personal initiative, perseverance and
THE STUDENT ASSOCIATION
The Student Association is the over-all organiza-
tion by which every student may participate in the
extra-curricular activities of the college. The officers
of this organization and the Student Senate which
operates as its board of management are elected
annually by popular vote of the members of the
association, or of one of its constituencies.
Much of the work in the over- all student or-
ganization is done in the standing committees of
the student body. The student committees, appointed
by the Student Senate, formulate recommendations
either to faculty committees, to the Student Associa-
tion, and/or to the Student Senate. The executive
officers of the Student Senate meet in regular
administrative conferences with the President, the
Dean, and the Business Manager of the college.
The Student Senate meetings are open to any
student who wants to attend; the visiting student
may take part in the discussions. In all-school forums
in the chapel, by referendum among all students,
and by discussions in group forums and classes, stu-
dent opinion is informed and may formulate recom-
mendations. To an increasing degree specific areas
of student life and activity are under the full ad-
ministration of the Student Senate or its sub-
Among the functions and activities administered
under the auspices of the Student Association and
its sub-committees are: formulation of policies gov-
erning student office holding, chartering of clubs;
allocation of regular weekly chapel hour time, the
meeting time for all the clubs, classes, forums, and
other student groups; planning for, and administra-
tion of the annual College Day; publication of the
two student periodicals, the Southern Accent and the
Southern Memories; organization of the annual col-
lege picnic, organization of the annual Arbor Day;
participation in the formulation of policies in joint
meetings with a number of faculty committees; publi-
cation of the weekly Campus Accent; administra-
tion of the students' weekly religious broadcasts;
promotion of special projects in regard to better
English, Week of Sacrifice for Missions, weekly news
commentaries, ushering service at all public func-
tions, fund-raising campaigns for improvements in
the trailer-camps and residence halls, and sanitary
A detailed handbook of student campus activi-
ties entitled 'Our Student Organization at Work"
sets forth the duties and procedures of the Student
Association and its component elements, the clubs
and societies under its jurisdiction.
The campus clubs are so varied that the special
interest of every student is almost certain to be
served. These include the following:
The Musical Organizations. The Chapel Singers,
The Women's Chorus, The Men's Chorus, The
The Activity Clubs. The Future Business Leaders
of America, The Future Nurses Club, The Modern
Language Club, The Southwesterners' Club, The
Home Economics Club, The International Relations
Club, The Stamp Club, The Radio Club, The Ushers
Special Interest Groups. The Apollos Guild
(future ministers' wives), The Dasowakita Club
(residence hall women), The Triangle Club (resi-
dence hall men), The Camera Club, The Colporteurs'
In addition to the above are: The Collegedale
Academy Forum; The Married Students' Forum; The
Missionary Volunteer Society; and the Freshmen,
Sophomore, Junior and Senior class organizations
which organize early in the first semester and meet
regularly throughout the school year.
Every student is encouraged to participate in
these organizations to the extent that his work and
study program will allow. As a means of protection
against an excessive load the student's participation
is subject to regulation by the Dean of the college.
In addition to the activities explained above a
number of special activities have become traditional
at Southern Missionary College.
The Faculty-Student Reception is given at the
close of the first week of school at which time the
traditional hand-shake is re-enacted.
Ingathering is participated in by the student body
and staff. On at least one day school is dismissed
so that students may go out to solicit for missions.
Many of those who remain on the campus devote
their labor income to the cause.
The Student Publications Campaign is for the
purpose of getting subscriptions for the college
paper and college yearbook.
The Alumni Banquet is held in connection with
the Commencement exercises. It is the official re-
union time for all S M C alumni. Members of the
current graduation class are guests at the banquet.
Chapel Services are held Monday, Wednesday
and Friday, at 11:15 a.m., at which time programs
of cultural, artistic and inspirational value are given
by the faculty, students, or guests.
Friday Night Vesper Services are held each week.
After an inspirational talk is given, the students have
opportunity to participate.
Senior Day is the day on which the Seniors are
formally presented in their caps and gowns. This
event usually takes place early in the second semester.
Junior Day is the day the Juniors are presented
and occurs a few weeks before school is dismissed
for the summer vacation.
AT dOUft SERVICE
Collegedale has a post office which gives the
college excellent service. Besides the usual hand-
ling of mail, it is authorized to issue money orders
and postal notes. It is also a Postal Savings De-
pository. Mail is picked up from and delivered
to each of the residence halls twice daily.
Your mail should be addressed to South Hall
(for men) and Maude Jones Hall (for women).
Trunks and packages which cannot be handled
by parcel post are delivered by railway express.
LOST AND FOUND
The lost and found department is in the Regis-
The cafeteria is one of the most congenial places
on the campus. There students meet and exchange
ideas, news and pleasantries.
As you enter the dining room a hostess will be
at the door to assign you to a table. It is customary
for young men to assist the ladies with their trays and
chairs. Also when a lady comes to a table to speak
to someone the young men at the table stand.
Each person at the table should contribute to
the conversation at meals. It is the duty of all to
dress appropriately in the dining hall and to help
maintain an atmosphere of quiet decorum.
Laundry is collected once each week at each
residence hall and may be called for at the laundry
at a time designated.
To safeguard your property there are two require-
ments: (1) Each article should be marked with
name tape. (These may be purchased at the laundry
for sixty cents per hundred). The laundry assumes
no responsibility for clothing which is not marked
with name tape. If the student prefers to furnish the
tags the laundry will sew them in at student ex-
pense. (2) A laundry slip should accompany each
bundle. The laundry supplies laundry bags for which
a charge of sixty cents for each semester is made.
The laundry handles dry cleaning and pressing,
Minor mending and patching is done free. A small
charge is made for other repair work.
The College Store provides general merchandise,
school supplies and books. It also houses the fountain
where you may obtain a snack in case you miss a
Telephone booths are installed in both residence
halls, Lynn Wood Hall, and the College Store. These
phones are available to students. Other office, busi-
ness, and residence phones are private installations.
Long distance calls may be made by paying cash or

THE SPRINKLER SYSTEM
The principal buildings are equipped with auto-
matic sprinklers for fire protection. The valves are
placed at intervals on the pipes, so constructed that
a small amount of heat (160° F.) will set them
into instantaneous operation, causing a flood of water
to be released in the room. Any blow to the valves
or damage to the pipes will cause this reaction.
You should not tamper with any part of the
sprinkler equipment, or sound a false fire alarm.
