24 ABILENE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
The advantages of attending college are not confined to the textbooks.
Students need some sort of work outside of their regular
school work. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." Change
of occupation, and not idleness, rests and develops the mind. Believing
co-operation and organization necessary in order that the most good
may be realized, we require each student to become a member of at
least one of the student organizations.
This organization is composed of young men and women under
the excellent direction of Miss Phillips, who also directs the Glee
Club. The club furnishes some splendid music for our friends.
All students who play orchestral instruments by note are urgently
requested to bring them along. There is nothing that adds to the
pleasures of student life more than a good orchestra. With Mr. Baldwin
to direct the success of the organization is assured.
This organization is maintained for the purpose of developing

programs, some of which are out of town. It is our purpose

to live up to these ideals in after life forfeits the membership and
the individual will be required to return his letter. The letters will be
awarded commencement morning of each year. One of the great honors
of the school is membership in this Club.
M. Zellner Literary Society
The society is composed of both boys and girls. It was organized
at the beginning of the 1913-'14 session, and has done excellent work
during the five years. The programs are vaired and offer an excellent
opportunity to those who avail themselves of the opportunities.
Jas. A. Harding Literary Society
This society was also organized at the beginning of the 1913-'14
session, and is composed of both boys and girls. The excellency of this
society is shown by the honors it has won.
