THE opening of the present collegiate year witnessed the inauguration of the
graduate department of Emory University. With Dr. Theodore H. Jack as
Dean, the Graduate School thus entered upon a most auspicious career. If
the past is any criterion of the future, Emory University may boast soon of
a graduate department which will be second to none in the South.
Our department is fortunate in being able to number among its students six
"co-eds," who have the distinction of being the first of their gentle sex to rank as
daughters of Emory. Miss C. B. Branham will be signally honored in being the first
woman to receive a diploma from Emory University. Our "co-eds" have shown that
they are well able to cope with the masculine mind, as well as to attract the masculine
While it is natural for graduate students to feel that they were divorced some¬
what from student activities when they received their previous degrees, yet our grad¬

Graduate School has had two men this year to bear the title of Chairman of the
Student Executive Council. Of these men one left us in November to become a
Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, England. The other is still on the campus
using his influence to direct student activities along lines that will help to build
a great LIniversity, and that will create a distinct Emory spirit.
We are proud of Emory, and we hope to conduct ourselves in such a way that
Emory will be proud of us.
