History of The Junior Class
FAR be it from us who started our pilgrimage together in the fall of '18 in the
old Oxfordian days—yea, far be it from us to reflect discredit upon our prede¬
cessors or our successors, but we will say that we are the hopefuls for the Class
of '22. Many have joined in with us, many stragglers have fallen by the wayside, and
now at this glorious hour our numbers have been so reduced that we now stand in
fighting trim, even as the army of Gideon. Fain would we break our pitchers and let
the dazzling light of all our glory spread consternation into the hearts of other
classes! But not so, we have been bribed to keep silent.
Through trials and tribulations we have labored side by side; we suffered with¬
out a murmur the agony of the S. A. T. C, and for our efforts we received naught but
the title "Police de la Cuisine." We emerged from this army kitchen greaseless, but
still slick, as we have infinitely proven in many an athletic encounter. Yes, we have
had our hands in all the life of the campus: we have flunked, we have shot 'em up
we have shipped, we have been reinstated, we have spread midnight feeds, we have
slaughtered subs, we have preached, we have gone to Sunday School, and we have
cut Church with the best of 'em, all this and more, too, and we consider ourselves all-
around good spcrts. If there be a whole sub army to dispute us, let 'em come on!
We pride ourselves on the love that we hold in our hearts for Emory. She has
been foremost in our thoughts for these three years, and what we have done in the
arena and in the forum has not been a jot and tittle of the deeper feelings and in¬
tentions that the spirit has given birth to.
Emory has developed marvelously during our brief sojourn, and we have watched
it with pride. Out cf the chaos of the moving from Oxford to the new home in Druid
Hills, there has ai en in an unimaginably brief time a spirit that will never die, a
University spirit; and to the ever increasing demands of such we wish to pledge our¬
selves anew. We are glad that we have one more year on the campus—and then a
lifetime in which to prove our love for Emory!
