Object Type: Folder
In Collection: Berea College Yearbooks


The Creative Writing section appears for the third year in this volume and includes a wood cut illustration by Mabel Henderson, '39. This Chimes features a picture of the Berea College Cabinet with a full list of the deans. There were five deaths among the faculty this year including Miss Katharine S. Bowersox, Dr. James Watt Raine, Miss Jessie Moore, Ira D. Shaw, and Mrs. Dillie Wertenberger. This year boasts the creation of the Carnegie Library. The Lower Division gained more exchange students this year; Severino Ochoco from San Fernando, La Union, Philippine Isl., Ralph Galloway from Beni Luef, Egypt, Maitland Strangemore from St. Anthony, Newfoundland, and Calvin Bright from Shansi, China. The Lower Division gained a Board of Governors and the Upper Division gained a Movie Club, Twenty Writers' Club, and the W. A. A. gained a Field Hockey team. The male sports teams are now no longer referred to as "Varsity" and "Freshman" but now "Varsity" is merely the name of the sport, and "Freshman" is "Secondary". The "May Court" is featured in the W. A. A. section. This year’s Chimes also features a “cartoons” section.
