MOLD YfHR FUTURE
Once a vain Father Time is opening Daniel Raker's portals for a
brand-new fall semester. To freshmen it will be a new and perhaps
bewildering experience; it is an interesting idea even before the
semester begins. Of course the uppcrclnssm.cn will have a different
slant on entering their 11)47 clashes; a Utile more mature probably
a little more insight on the procedure of things. They have gone
through the first stages of production into intelligent citizens; nat-
urally they know more.
A philosopher once said "Advice is something that after you get
it you do what you wanted to do in the first place" and yours truly
will not attempt to give advice to freshmen or anyone else. One or
two time-proven facts might be in order however.
In the first place college is a business to students or should be.
And more than ever before the old idea of "business before pleasure"
should be applied by each individual student to himself. If he doesn't
he is hurting only himself. The idea is if you know it all you
shouldn't be going to college. If you don't know it all learn from those
uutholi::cd to teach you.
Secondly college is different from high school in many ways. It's
more adult and you shall be treated and expected to act as an adult.
Whether you make the grade or not depends mostly on you.
Thirdly get interested and keep interested. You will find all the
doors open to anything in which you wish anil are qualified to parti-
cipate. There is a release of all intellectual drives wlu-tehr it be for
science language dramatics music athletics each may help you and
you in turn may help them.
Take school seriously as you will later on take the responsibilities
of lift- sorioufcly. College is your last chance to form the habits
ideas abilities and ambitions that will last to life's end.
Hero is a great-big hello and welcome to the Exes of Daniel Baker
and a sincere wish on our part that they enjoy this visit at the old
Alma Mater the football game the banquet and all. May they return
more often not just for Homecoming but for all our activities. Wo
need their support now as DBC needed it when they were students.
The Exes have been over the road; they have already accomplished
much good. We have yet to achieve; we need their occasional pres-
ence to remind us that we will eventually gain a degree hard earned
yes but it can be done. Things may be a little different now but it
still takes the same age-old element of determination to gain what
our ambitions require.
Our Exes are spread far and wide over the country but still they
come back to support us when we need them. Once again we say
"Welcome Exes welcome always!"
Bell Tower Tales
Ths column consists of general
information gathered from students
throughout the campus. Since this
column is noted neither for its
literary style nor for the accuracy
of facts it should not bo taken too
seriously. In fact some people
have been known to refer to this as
a "Gossip Column." If your name
appears take it in the spirit in
which it is meant and we shall all
laugh together. It's all in fun.
Quite a few familiar faces have

Every college has a mascot and
just a part ot the college spirit as
the students is Billie Baker the
D.B.C. billygoat. Surely not the
most intelligent or well-mannered
goat in the world but to us he is
a symbol; a symbol of strength
.and a never-say-die spirit which is
a heritage of the school.

The "Ad" Building Coggin Hall
has been remodeled during the
summer with classrooms extend-

built in what was the typing room

Library is to become classrooms

Paint and plaster have made
the old Trail and Collegian offices
into classrooms markedly different
from former times and the old
auditorium has been partitioned
into a hall and a large classroom.
Lighter paint has made the stairs

From the Speech Department
One of the new personalities to
be seen on the campus of Daniel
Bnken has at first glance a mis-
leading appearance She has the
youth and vitality of an uppcr-
classmnn but she is not a student
at all she is the Speech Depart-
ment's new boss Miss Ullrich. So
sorry fclla! Any of you with co-
ed eyes out I hope you don't get
them tangled trying to keep them
off Miss Ullrich.
Sincerely" we extend a most
hearty welcome to our now speech
teacher. We offer to her and the
Speech Department our fullest co-
operation and hope that her stay
with DBC will be long and pleas-
ant. Miss Ullrich has not yet mapped
out a definite road for the depart-
ment to follow. She plans to have
as a minimum two major pro-
ductions a year. She hopes to en-'
large and improve the department
over a period of time eventually
making it one of the school's larg-
est. The courses now offered in
speech range from Fundamentals
(311) to Composition and Delivery
(355) with others offered in the
spring semester. As the depart-
ment is enlarged more courses
will be offered to accomodate
speech majors and minors.
Extra-curricular activities at pro-
sent exist only in last year's Var-
sity Players students who are vet-
erans of several plays.
