To Be Re-Dedicated To
Generations of Service
A link with the glorious past, Old College is to have renewed life injected into her for
another three-score-and-ten-years of service^ Alumni are raising a $5,000 fund to rehabilitate
the building, and the work will include a new heating plant, new lighting and seating arrange-
ments, new flooring, and re-decorating.
Old College holds tender memories for men and women all over the world. . . . tender
memories of those who have become friends, and in some instances, mates. Since 1865, the
sturdy structure has sheltered youth in quest of higher learning. Now is coming a much-needed
rejuvenation at the insistence of interested former students, who have contributed freely in
order to add years of usefulness to the building.
An exact duplicate of the Parthe-
non in Athens, Greece, this building
IS located m Centennial Park, Nash-
ville. It is the result of years of
research and study on the part of
architects, artists, and archaeologists.

The Rehgious Council is composed of the student presidents of the three religious
organizations on the campus, the two "vice-presidents of the YMCA-YWCA,
and the faculty sponsors of these organizations. It is responsible for planning religious
conferences, special services, affiliated church memberships in the local churches,
and for sending delegates representing the college to Christian conferences else-
where. Its members have charge of one Sunday night meeting per month in the
Athens Methodist Church, and the final "Candle Lighting" Service at Commencement.
Among the Christian leaders brought to the campus by the Council this year are'
Rev. W. D. Wilkinson, Conference Evangelist; Dr. Charles F. Sitterly, professor o
Biblical Literature at Drew University; Dr. N. C. McPherson, assistant secretary of
the Division of Schools and Colleges of the M. E. Church, South; Rev. Frank hiamilton.

sentatives before ihe faculty.

The Tennessee Wesleyan Bulldoss trampled over all Junior College teams to win the South-
eastern Junior College Gridiron Championship for the sixth consecutive time, and lay undisputed

Blue aggregation won seven games, lost two, and tied one. King College overcame Wesleyan
in a heart-breaker at Bristol, 19 — 14; Sewanee licked the Bulldogs by 25 — to avenge last
Probably the most thrilling game of the season was the homecoming contest v/ith Milligan.
It resulted in a 20 — 20 tie. Milligan marched through to score 20 points in the first half, but
Wesleyan came back strong in the latter half to score 20 points.

Capitan hHoward hHollingsworth was the mainstay in the Wesleyan backfield, his brilliant run-

The work of Lambert, Ramsey, and Graves was a great asset to the team through the entire season.
The whole team functioned well, and Coach McCray commended them for their fine work.
At the annual banquet given the boys by President and Mrs. Robb, Bobby Baker, fleet-footed
halfback, was chosen captain for next year. Prospects for another successful season are very
