"One earnest, conscientious, faithful 
young man in a school is an inestimable 
treasure. Angels of heaven look lovingly 
upon him, and in the ledger of heaven is 
recorded every work of righteousness, 
every temptation resisted, every evil over- 
come. He is laying up a good foundation 
against the time to come, that he may 
lay hold on eternal life." — "Counsels to 
Teachers," pp. 96, 99.

Within these covers the student will find 
valuable information regarding the customs 
and policies of Southern Junior College and 
its academy. It is therefore necessary that 
each student carefully read this book before 
making application for admission that he 
may acquaint himself with the regulations 
of the school and understanding^ sign the! 
matriculation blank. His matriculation, 
then, is a pledge that he will abide by the 
rules and that his conduct will correspond 
to the spirit of the institution. 


Believing that new students, and fre- 
quently old students as well, feel the need 
of and appreciate definite and accurate 
information regarding the college policies, 
standards, and campus life and customs, 
the Student Handbook has been prepared. 
Many questions arise which too often re- 
main unanswered until the student finds 
himself face to face with some unfortunate 
and embarrassing situation, invdlving some 
regulation which he has not understood or 
even known. The catalog gives much help- 
ful information, but it is necessarily of a 
more general nature. We trust that this 
handbook may prove to be helpful to our 
teachers and students, since it gives in 
concise and convenient form, information 
concerning the policies, standards, and cam- 
pus activities of Southern Junior College.

Southern Junior College is located on 
the Southern Railway between Chatta- 
nooga and Atlanta, eighteen miles from 
the former city. Trains pass through the 
College estate; our station is known as 
Collegedale, which is also the postal ad- 

Collegedale is three miles from the vil- 
lage of Ooltewah, a junction point of the 
Atlanta and Knoxville divisions of the 
Southern Railway. Through trains between 
Washington, Memphis, Birmingham, New 
Orleans; between Cincinnati, Atlanta, and 
Jacksonville, stop at Ooltewah, thus afford- 
ing splendid railway service. Ooltewah is 
also on the Lee Highway, which connects 
Washington, D.C., and other eastern cities 
with Chattanooga and other southern 
points. A hard-surface highway reaches 
from Collegedale to Chattanooga, thus 
affording quick access to this scenic and 
historic city of one hundred and forty 
thousand people. Motor buses opera- 
ting between Chattanooga and Apison pass 
in front of the College. As an accommoda- 
tion to passengers, they often drive to the

Air Lines is located a few miles from the

"Rules should be few and well consider- 
ed; and when once made, they should be 
enforced. Whatever it is found impossible 
to change, the mind learns to recognize 
and adapt itself to; but the possibility of 
indulgence induces desire, hope, and un- 
certainty, and the results are restlessness, 
irritability, and insubordination^ ^"5$%

them in the Word of God. They should 
have delineated before them the peril of 
taking a step into the by-paths of evil. They 
should be educated to revere the counsels 
of God in His sacred oracles. They should 
be so instructed that they will set their 
resolution against evil, and determine that 
they will not enter into the path where 
they could not expect Jesus to accompany 
them, and His blessing to abide upon them. 
They should be taught practical, daily re- 
ligion that will sanctify them in every re- 
lation of life, in their homes, in business, 
in the church, in society. They must be so 
educated that they will realize that it is a 
perilous thing to trifle with their privileges 
but that God expects them reverently and 
earnestly to seek daily for His blessing. The 
blessing of God is a precious gift, and it is 
to be counted of such worth that it will not 
be surrendered at any cost. The blessing 
of God maketh rich, and it addeth no sor- 
row."— Ibid., pp. 232-233. 

"Upon Christian youth depend in a great 
measure the preservation and perpetuity 
of the institutions which God has devised 
as a means by which to advance is Hwork. 
This grave responsibility rests upon the 
youth of today, who are coming upon the 
stage of action. . . .

with the laws and regulations of our in- 
stitutions they are only doing that which 
will improve their standing in society, ele-

vate the character, ennoble the mind, and 
increase their happiness, they would not 
rebel against just rules and wholesome re- 
quirements, nor engage in creating sus- 
picion and prejudice against these institu- 
tions "—"Testimonies," Vol. 4, p. 434. 

"Students, you can make this school first 
class in success by being laborers together 
with your teachers to help other students, 
and by zealously uplifting yourselves from 
a cheap, common, low standard. Let each 
see what improvement he can make in con- 
forming his conduct to Bible rules. Those 
who will seek to be themselves elevated 
and ennobled are co-operating with Jesus 
Christ by becoming refined in speech, in 
temper, under the control of the Holy 
Spirit. . . ."—"Fundamentals of Christian 
Education," p. 464. 


"Students ,make your school life as per- 
fect as possible. You will pass over this way 
but once, and precious are the opportuni- 
ties granted you. You are not only to learn, 
but to practice the lessons of Christ." — 
Counsels to Teachers, p. 554. 


Southern Junior College is open to all 
worthy students who come for the purpose 
of doing earnest, faithful work. Those 

10 Southern Junior College 

who have little desire to study, or who are 
careless in their deportment are not en- 
couraged to enter. Those who use tobac- 
co, liquor, or profane language, who in- 
dulge in card playing and improper asso- 
ciations, will not knowingly be admitted 
or retained. 

Students should remember that the school 
is a Christian instutition. Unless they are 
willing to give due respect to the Word of 
God, the Sabbath, worship and other re- 
ligious exercises of the institution, they 
should not apply for admittance. 




"Each student entering one of our 
schools should place himself underdisci- 
pline. Those who refuse to obey the regu- 
lations should return to their homes." — 
"Counsels to Teachers," p. 265. 

All regulations adopted by the faculty 
and announced to the students have the 
same force as those published in the Cata- 
log and in the Student's Handbook. 

Experience has shown that there are some 
practices that cannot be tolerated in Seven- 
th-day Adventist institutions. Since Sou- 
thern Junior College would not knowingly 
receive a student who offends in these prac- 
tices, the first offence of the following nature

on or off the school premises, lays the student 
liable to immediate dismissal: 

1. Gambling, betting, possessing or 
using cards, or other gambling devices. 

2. Drinking liquor, handling or pos- 
sessing liquor, or furnishing it to others. 

3. Using narcotics or tobacco in any 
form; having narcotics, tobacco, pipes, ci- 
gars, cigarettes, or cigarette papers in one's 
possession, or allowing their use in one's 

4. Meeting persons of the opposite sex 
in any clandestine manner. 

5. Willful deception regarding violation 
of school regulations, including dishonesty 
in examinations or other class work, whether 
in giving or receiving help. 

6. Using or possessing weapons or firearms. 

7. Using profane language, indulging in 
lewd conduct or suggestions, possessing or 
displaying obscene literature, pictures or

dermining the religious ideals of the in-

The Student's Standing. While every 
effort is put forth to stimulate and inspire 
the student to develop the best that is in 
him, the College cannot undertake the prob- 
lem of disciplining students who are not in 
sympathy with its purposes; therefore, any 
student who becomes antagonistic to the 
spirit, standards, or discipline of the Col- 
lege or who disseminates ideas contrary 
to the wholesome influence or the school, 
and thus attempts to undermine its ideals, 
»ill be dismissed. 

Any student whose scholarship shows 
that he is failing to accomplish the purpose 
for which he attends college, and that con- 
tinuance_ in school would be unprofitable 
to him, will be advised to make other plans. 

Eligibility to Office. The names of all 
student candidates for official positions in 
any college or class organization, rriiuSt be 
approved by the President or Deans. 

Probation. A student placed on proba- 
tion will be dismissed if guilty of further 
offenses. After a period of good conduct, 
the student may be released from probation. 

Religious Reauirements. The College be- 
lieves that attendance at religious services 
is helpful in the development of Christian 
character and not an infringerrifent upon the 
student's personal liberty, since he voluntar- 
ily places himself under such regulations 
by the act of entering school. Therefore, 
attendance at Friday evening service, Sab- 

Student Handbook 13 

bath school, and church services is required 
of all students. In the case of resident 
students, the College relies upon the stu- 
dent's home to carry out this regulation 
as an evidence of good faith. If a student 
who lives in a school home is ill, or un- 
able for any other reason to attend, he 
should notify the Dean before the ser- 
vice from which he desires to absent him- 
self, and he will be expected to stay quietly 
in his own roonii 

Students are expected to deport them- 
selves on the Sabbath in harmony with the 
sacredness of the day. 

Social Relations. While a friendly social 
intermingling of students in classes and gen- 
eral school activities is encouraged, the 
unrestricted association of young men and 
young women is not permitted. Improper 
associations, flirting, strolling together, sur- 
reptitious meetings, loitering about the 
buildings, on the campus or grounds 
or sitting together in public gath- 
erings, except at functions where permission 
is granted, cannot be permitted since these 
things militate against the best interests of 
the College. 

Official chaperons from the faculty for 
all mixed social groups, are approved by 
the President. 

All unmarried students whose parents or 
legal guardians do not reside in the vicinity 
of the College, are required to live in the 

14 Southern Junior College 

school homes. Exceptions to this rule are 
made only by the Administration. 

Those planning social functions involving 
dormitory students should submit in writing 
to the Deans at least 72 hours in advance of 
the proposed gathering, the names of those 
invited. Once a list is approved, there 
should be no eliminations or additions 
without counsel with the Deans. 

Motor Vehicles. Students are advised 
not to bring automobiles or motorcycles 
to the College. Experience has demonstra- 
ted that in many cases irregularities detri- 
mental to the student's progress have re- 
sulted from the use of automobiles while 
in the school. If motor vehicles are brought 
to the College by students, they must be 
kept in a place designated by the Adminis- 
tration, and the keys deposited with the 

Cameras. Students are advised against 
the promiscuous use of cameras. Uncon- 
ventional and questionable pictures do not 
rightly represent Southern Junior College; 
therefore the taking of such pictures con- 
stitutes a violation of its principles. Cam- 
eras are not to be used on the Sabbath. 

Dress. No jewelry such as bracelets, 
rings, or lockets, may be worn All ex- 
tremes in thin waists, length of skirts or 
sleeves, high heels, and low necks, should 
be avoided, and in the whole wardrobe 

Student Handbook 15 

health, good taste, modesty, and economy 
should be considered The use of "makeup" 
is forbidden. 

Pass Keys. Students are forbidden to 
use pass keys in any of the buildings of the 
institution except when such keys have 
been issued by the Business Office, and 
proper authority has been delegated to the 
student. A fine of five dollars will be as- 
sessed any student who, without permis- 
sion, is found on a fire escape or roof of 
any building; who enters any room by 
window or transom, by use of pass keys or 
other improper means. 

Protection of property. All persons are 
forbidden to cut trees of any kind on College 
property, or to mutilate trees or shrubbery 
in any way. Students are warned against 
carelessness in the use of fire in the timber 
on the College estate. In all cases of dam- 
age to institutional property by students, 
they will be held personally responsible. 

Gainful Enterprise. Any student who 
desires to carry on an enterprise for the pur- 
pose of gain, shall first secure the con- 
sent of the President.

"To each student in the home I would 
say, be true to home duties, be faithful in 
the discharge of little responsibilities, be a 
real living Christian in the home. Let Chris- 
tian principles rule your heart and control 
your conduct. Heed every suggestion made 
by the teacher, but do not make it a neces- 
sity always to be told what to do. Discern 
for yourself. Notice for yourself if all things 
in your own room are spotless and in order 
that nothing there may be an offense to 
God, but that when holy angels pass 
through your room, they may be led to 
linger because attracted by the prevailing 
order and cleanliness. In doing your duties 
promptly, neatly, faithfully, you are mis- 
sionaries. You are bearing witness for 
Christ "—"Testimonies," Vol. 6, p. 171. 

Leaving Campus. Students may not 
leave the campus without making proper 
arrangements with the Dean and work 

In no case will leave of absence be granted 
to students to visit in private homes, ex- 
cept on written authorization from parents 
or guardians. 

Permission to make business trips to 
Chattanooga will be granted when neces- 
sary arrangements have been made with 
the Dean. The College provides auto- 
mobile service to Chattanooga, and all stu- 

Student Handbook 17 

dents going to the city are expected to use 
this service. A reasonable charge is made. 
Parents aire urged not to make frequent 
requests for their children to come home 
or visit friends, since such absences seriously 
interfere with the students' class work. In 
all cases where parents desire their children 
to come home, a written request must be 
addressed directly to the President, and 
should not be enclosed in a letter to the 
student. Permission for leave of absence 
will be granted not more frequently than 
once in four weeks, except in cases of emer- 

Absence from Worship. Attendance at 
worship services in the school homes is 
expected of all dormitory students. 

Absences from the dormitories after even- 
ing worship, without permission, is con- 
sidered a serious violation of the regulations 
of the College. 

Callers. Since the school dormitories are 
private homes and not public buildings, 
persons living outside who desire to call 
upon members of the home family are re- 
quested to make their business known at the 
Dean's office. 

Fire Hazards. Students are not allowed 
to cook food in their rooms; therefore, such 
heating appliances as chafing dishes, alcohol 
and electric stoves are not permitted in the 
College homes. Candles must not be used. 

18 Southern Junior College 


Mail. The mail is carried to and from 
the school homes daily. When writing 
to students correspondents should add the 
name of the school and the school home 
to the address; this insures delivery. 

Laundry. All the student's clothing and 
bedding which is to be laundered must be 
marked with full name in indelible ink. 
Laundry bags should be provided. All laun- 
dry must be ready to be taken to the laundry 
within the appointed time. 

School Store. School supplies, stationery, 
toilet articles, etc., may be purchased at 
the store. 

Fire-Drills. In preparation for fire emer- 
gency, students are organized into units and 
given practice in fire-drill. 

Valuables. The school is not responsible 
for money or other valuables kept by the 
student. To insure safety, all but small 
amounts of money shoud be deposited at 
the Treasurer's office. 

Advisers for Student Organizations. The 

President reserves the right to appoint ad- 
visers for all student organizations. 

Senior Advisory Committee. A commit- 
tee for graduating class activities will be 
appointed by the faculty at the beginning 
of the second semester. 

Student Handbook 19 

Resident and Non-resident Status. All 

unmarried students whose parents or legal 
guardians do not reside in the vicinity of the 
College are required to live in the school 
homes. Exceptions to this rule are made 
only by the Local Board of Management. 

Play. Academy students may not engage 
in games or play during the morning school 

Damages. Students will be charged for 
damage done to school property by them. 

Trespassing on Roofs. Students are 
forbidden to go onto the roof of any College 
building except when making repairs at the 
direction of the management. 

Permissions. No one should go to the 
village or be away from the school homes 
for any length of time or sleep in any room 
other than his own without obtaining per- 
mission from the Dean of Men or the Dean 
of Women or Preceptress. 

Permission to go from the school or any 
leave which involves absence from any 
school assignment such as class, chapel, 
or Sabbath services, must be obtained from 
the President by the use of the Leave of 
Absence Blank. 

Reading. Novels and cheap story mag- 
azines may not be brought to the school. 

Music and Radios. Radios or phono- 

20 Southern Junior College 

graphs will not be allowed in the Student's 
rooms. Jazz, Swing and cheap music is 
is not permitted on the campus. 

Guests. The ability of the school to 
entertain guests is lirmted because of lack 
of room and other facilities. The school 
usually provides one guest room in each 
home. Those who expect to be guests of 
the school should notify either the Dean of 
Men or the Dean of Women in sufficient 
time so that proper reservations can 
be made. Our students are here for 
work and Christian growth; guests are 
therefore, requested not to interfere 
with the regularity of the student's 
program and proper Sabbath observance. 
No guest or stranger should go to a stu- 
dents room without the knowledge of the 
one in charge of the home. 

All guests remaining in either school home 
over night are expected to register in the 
office of the Dean. Any student enter- 
taining a guest in his room over night 
without previous arrangement and the 
registration of the guest, may be charged 
one dollar per night. 

Parents visiting their children at the 
school are expected to make proper ar- 
rangements with the Dean regarding 
any plan which would interfere with 
the regular assigned work, and in no 
case should any affair be arranged 
which would be out of harmony with the 

Student Handbook 21 

school regulations governing the conduct 
of students 

Sabbath Observance. Students are ex- 
pected to deport themselves in such a way 
on the Sabbath as shall be in harmony with 
the sacredness of the day, and to attend 
Friday evening service, Sabbath school, 
and public worship. If, because of illness, 
or for some other accepted reason, the stu- 
dent cannot attend one of these services, 
he should present an excuse to the Dean of 
Men or the Dean of Women. It is 
advisable that the excuse be presented 
before the service. He will then be 
expected to remain in quietness in 
the school home. If absences are 
not arranged for as stated above, the third 
unexcused absence will be reported to the 

Study Period. Since the evening tetudy 
period is valuable to each student, it should 
be carefully observed. Quietness must be 
maintained throughout the building. In 
order to aid in maintaining a quiet study 
period there should be no talking aloud, 
and all students should wear felt-soled 
slippers or rubber-heeled shoes, during the 
entire period. No baths should be taken 
during the study hour exceptjjn emergency, 
and then only with permission. ! A monitor 
is in charge of each floor and will£ arrange 
for necessary errands but as a rule errands 

22 Southern Junior College 

should be attended to before the beginning 
of the study period. 

Dishes and Silverware. Students are 
not permitted to carry dishes or kitchen 
utensils to their rooms without permission 
of the Matron. 

Health Service. The College employs 
school nurses who, in conjunction with 
physicians, are charged with the duty of 
safeguarding the health of the students. The 
medical fee covers the following services: 
The care of minor ailments and acci- 
dents, simple remedies and dressings, 
necessary office calls and treatments, 
and general nursing service in the homes. 
This fee does not cover tray service, 
special nursing and treatments, hospi- 
tal fees, or operations. In case of an 
epidemic or extended illness, other arrange- 
ments may be necessary. 

As far as possible, all necessary dental 
and optical work should be cared for by 
students before entering the College, since 
serious interference with school work results 
from frequent appointments with a doctor 
during the school term. 

Privacy. Those who reside in the College 
residence halls have their private rooms 
and should be respected in this right. No 
student should enter another's room without 
permission, nor in any way molest the pro- 
perty of others. Students who do not reside 

Student Handbook 23 

in the dormitories are requested to remember 
that these buildings are not public. 

Care of Personal Proprety. Students 
leaving school should remove their personal 
effects at the time they leave. The College 
will not accept responsibility for packing 
or shipping personal effects or baggage. 

Vacation Conduct. Students who remain 
in the College residence halls after the close 
of the academic year, who come before the 
opening of a given semester or summer 
session, or who remain during the holiday 
season, are under the same general regula- 
tions of the College as during the regular 
school year or during the summer school. 

The Sprinkler System. The principal 
buildings are equipped with automatic 
sprinklers for fire protection. 

The valves are placed at intervals on the 
pipes, so constructed that a small amount 
of heat (160 degrees 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 also cause this reaction. 

Students should not tamper at any time 
with any valve or any part of the equip- 
ment. Failure to follow this instruction 
may result in severe penalty. 

An automatic alarm will start ringing 
very loudly whenever the system goes into 
operation. This will indicate that a flood 

24 Southern Junior College 

of water is being released into the building, 

Loss and Recovery of Personal Property. 

The College cannot hold itself responsible 
for the loss of personal property. Students 
are asked to provide themselves with brief 
cases or other means of caring for their books 
and other personal belongings so they will 
not be left lying about the buildings. Arti- 
cles that are found are left at the Janitor's 


"Our relations to one another are not to 
be governed by human standards " — 
"Counsels to Teachers," p 256. 

"Under . . . the untimely excitement of 
courtship and marriage, many students 
fail to reach that height of mental develop- 
ment which they might otherwse have at- 
tained."— Ibid., p. 83. «w| 

"Those who are possessed of a love-sick 
sentimentalism and make their attendance 
at the school an opportunity for courting 
and exchanging improper attentions, should 
be brought under the closest restrictions." 
"Testimonies," Vol. 4, p. 209. 

"Some of those who attend our schools 
do not properly improve their time. Full 
of the buoyancy of youth, they spurn the 
restraint that is brought to bear upon them. 
Especially do they rebel against the rules 
that will not allow gentlemen to pay at- 

Student Handbook 25 

tention to young ladies. Full well is known 
the evil of such a course in this degenerate 
age. In a school where so many youth are 
associated, imitating the customs of the 
world in this respect would turn the thoughts 
in a channel that would hinder them in their 
pursuit of knowledge, and in their interest 
in religious things. The infatuation on the 
part of both young men and women in thus 
placing the affections upon each other dur- 
ing school days, shows a lack of good 
judgment — Under this bewitching delusion, 
the momentous responsibility felt by every 
sincere Christian is laid aside, spirituality 
dies, and the judgment and eternity lose 
their awful significance." — "Testimonies," 
Vol. 5, p. 110. 

Read also "Counsels to Teachers," pp. 

A friendly social intermingling of young 
men and women in classes, the dining room, 
and school activities is encouraged Senti- 
mentalism and conspicuous attentions are 
forbidden. Announcements of engagements 
or wedding invitations or announcements 
should not be sent out during the school 

Escorting. Upon the subject of escorting 
two points need to be considered. The 
common practice of waiting at the 
door of a public building to accompany 
a lady home is rude, and hence cannot be 
tolerated at any time by any well-regulated 

2S Southern Junior College 

home or school. There is only one proper 
mode of escorting a lady, except in case of 
emergency, and that is for the gentleman 
to go to the home of the lady, and with the 
knowledge and full consent of her parents, 
accompany her to a public gathering, sit 
with her during the exercises, and see her 
safely and directly home at the close. But 
during school it is not best to permit un- 
restricted even this mode of escorting, be- 
cause general permission would bring a 
spirit of sentimentalism into the school 
which would interfere with study and good 
order; while discrmination would be re- 
garded as favoritism, producing jealousy 
and leading to reckless transgression. 

In case of students who are sufficiently 
mature, well advanced in their course of 
study and whose general conduct and scho- 
larship are satisfactory, permission may be 
granted young men to call uponvrgacwmg

The following requirements apply to all 
matriculated students and to all couples 
of which one member is a student, and hold 
for all social occasions where there is definite 
coupling, such as lyceum programs, parlor 
privileges, picnics, parties, class field trips, 
on or off the campus: 

Scholarship — the student must have 
no conditions (E), or incompletes (I), for 
present or past work.

which will take him away from any school 
exercise, unless those issuing the invitation 
shall previously confer with the president. 

Activities. "The student has a special 
work to do in the school itself. In the school 
room and in the school home there are mis- 
sionary fields awaiting his labors." — ''Coun- 
sels to Teachers," p. 552.

improve every opportunity to prepare for 
this work. Here they are to be tested and 
proved, that it may be seen what their adap- 
tability is, and whether they have a right 
hold from above. If they have a living con- 
nection with heaven, they will have an in- 
fluence for good on those with whom they 
come in contact." Ibid., p. 549. 

"You have the Pattern, Christ Jesus; 
walk in His footsteps, and you will be quali- 
fied to fill any and every position that you 
may be called upon to occupy." — "Funda- 
mentals of Christian Education," p. 303. 

"Love and loyalty to Christ are the 
springs of all true service. In the heart 
touched by His love, there is begotten a de- 
sire to work for Him." — "Education," p. 

Students and teachers of our schools unite 
in a number of activities which qualify 
young men and women for service in har- 
mony with the above instruction. The num- 
ber of these activities in which students may 
engage depends upon scholarship, physical 
strength, and manifest loyalty to the stan- 
dards of Christian education, and will be 
limited at the discretion of the faculty. 
Among these activities are the following. 

The Sabbath School. Gives opportunity 
for many to gain experience in class teaching, 
in serving as officers, and in assisting in 
public service.

The Missionary Volunteer Society. With 
its weekly general meetings and various 
bands, gives active direction to Christian 
help work and to other lines of missionary 
endeavor, and fosters the student's indivi- 
dual Christian experience through emphasis 
on prayer and Bible Study. 

The Gospel Workers' Seminar. Seeks 
to train young men and women for active 
soul-winning service by affording oppor- 
tunity in systematic study and experience 
in the various branches of personal work, 
the conducting of public meetings, and the 
presenting of religious themes before an 
audience under the supervision of an ex- 
perienced instructor. 

The School Paper. The school paper 
gives opportunity for a corps of students 
under advisers to conduct the literary and 
business affairs of a magazine, and provides 
a literary outlet for aspiring writers. 

The Music Organizations. Such as the 
Glee Club, the Lyric Club, the Chorus, the 
A Cappella Choir, the Orchestra and the 
Band, provide practice in rendering in pub- 
He the best class of music.

"There is a distinction between recrea- 
tion and amusement. Recreation, when 
true to its name, re-creation, tends to stren- 
gthen and build up. Calling us aside from 
ordinary cares and occupations, it affords 
refreshment for mind and body, and thus 
enables us to return with new vigor to the 
earnest work of life. Amusement, on the 
other hand, is sought for the sake of pleasure, 
and is often carried to excess ; it absorbs the 
energies that are required for useful work, 
and thus proves a hindrance to life's true 
success." — Education, p. 207. 

In keeping with our accepted denomina- 
tional standards, we are glad to provide 
many wholesome recreational activities.
