ABILENE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
boys and girls meet only in the class rooms, in the chapel, and
in the literary societies, and always under the supervision of a
member of the faculty.
ARE YOU WANTED?
It would be ideal if a school could be found in which there
were no sports, dudes, idlers, shallow-brains, busy-bodies in
everything except that for which they were sent to school. We
are anxious to help; but if you are "going off to school" to see
how much of the "old man's money" you can spend; or if you
think you must slip out at night and see how many foul things
you can learn; or if you think a little learning a dangerous
thing, and are going to fight against getting any at all; or if
your shoes are too highly polished to put under a study table,
your hair too well combed to run your fingers through, your
trousers too well pressed to sit any place except in the parlor; or
if you have too many suits to stay in your room, please allow us
to save you time, money and embarrassment. A. C. C. has no
place for you, and will not suffer the student body to associate
with you. Experience has taught us that we can do such students
no good. We are not opposed to students looking neat, clean,
and tidy. Taste and common sense are encouraged in dress.
Read the foregoing paragraph over again and if you decide
it fits you and you intend to continue with your present outlook
upon life, please do not come; but if you are a common, ordinary
boy or girl-one who is too busy to do anything except
your duty, come on. The world is looking for you.
THE OTHER SIDE.
While the primary object of our school is work, and to teach
others to work, we are very anxious not to make "Jack a dull
boy." In keeping with this desire, we have arranged certain
times for relaxation and recreation; times for pleasure and pastime;
and even times for frolic and fun. The opening days are
always times of happiness. From these days on, the various
programs, games, picnics, and chicken roasts and the occasional
reception, remain as some of the most pleasant memories of
school life. It is our purpose to make the entire year a pleasure,
and to the happy, purposeful student, when the proper time
comes, there will be no fun like work.
Here’s what’s next.
