* A IDSTORY Harding had a great number of new faces on· the campus . at eh beginning of their school year Qf 1947-'48. Another new member was to be founcfon the campus,too. The diffe·rence in her and the f.reshman, is. that long after they are graduated, she will still tie her~. ot CO"l:\rse, she ·will have -- :-.. grown some; maybe not so much in size, but Per- . . . haps you are wondering who she is. We call her GALAXY. Due to increased enrollment, new social clubs had to be ·formed. Dr. F: W. Mattox, Dean of Men, helped to organize GALAXY and Maury Log~e was appointed temporary president. The first tPi,ng for the club to do was to select a sponsor. The club's unanimous choice was Dr. Kern Sears. (Dr~ Kern is a distinguished fellow with a small scar on his forehead, which he claims is' moving down. But we in the club think may– be hi~ hairline is moving up.) In order to function properly, a club must have a set of laws to guide it in it's acticities. A constitution was drawn up and ratified, and then officers were elected according to specifications. *

"'•- CHRISTMAS PARTY "Oh JOU better·watch out, you better not pout, better not shout, cause Santa Claps is coming t.o tf)Wn.",:..--Thi~ was so true when the Galaxians of the GALAXY had"thei~· Chr'istmas party on Monday, Dec~mber 15, after Monday Night :Me~ting·. . . . , . ' . ,.. . . " , . T here ·wasn't any pouting, but there was plenty of shouting of joy and • • ' mirth that told that all of them were having a good time. The scene was the choral studio and had been decorated up for Christmas with lighted tree (from Esther Mitchell) and all the trimmings. As • eac h member entered he place a wonderful and beautiful present (which ' wasn't to cost over 10~) under the tree. Gerald Kendrick acted as master of ceremonies for the occasion. When all of the members had gathered, Gerald took his place and started the program. but before he had·hardly gotten out a word who should come rushing in but Santa, himself, (Yeah, himslef) with whiskers, red suit and all. After a few jolly words and ? ?jokes?? Santa handed out all the presents. They ranged from mousetraps to baby bottles. After every person had opened his present Santa sent Gerald K. and Don G. after a huge TIDNG that he had left in his sleigh. The THING which resembled a atom bomb was decorated with d~ger signs -and bright colored japer. Sant's instructions were to put it in the middle of the room. Then he

THE GALAXY CHRISTMAS CARD As an unusual idea for giving the students of Harding a spirit of Christmas, the GALAXY sponsored the placing of a huge C hristmas Card over the dining hall entrance. The card was made up of blue and white cardboard printed in white ink. It had the GALAXY emblem in all its glorious colors magnified at the top. The card, which cause much talk of admiration fqr the club, read as follows: THE GALAXY SOCIAL CLUB wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year May the idea continue as a small project of the club for many years to come. Thanks this year for its preparation goes to Don Garner and Gerald Kendrick. .,.

GALAXY'S "PLAY NIGHT" TIME: Seven-thirty p. m. DATE: SCENE: Rendezvous Blue Room OCCASI()N: GALAXY'S First Annual Banquet.

It was outing day for the GALAXY and af te:-r rubbing their eyes, stretching, and that inevitable early morning yawn they were up aad getting ready to meet their d'ltes as the sun was announcing its ·approach over the horizon. # "Red Bluff" was the destination 1Pr the outing, but this short twenty miles from Searcy was reached onlyafterafewcomical early morning expierences that h~lp tomak.-ejustanouting--- ''a good. outing.'' First it was decided that it would be wise to send an "advance party'' to the Bluff to bUild.& fi_re and start breakfast in preparation for the rest of the group thatwasto followafewminutes later in the R. K. Adams bus. The advatiee ~ty consisting of Betty Perkins, Gerald Ken~ck, Kathy Stubblefield, Jack Plummer, Ruth Cummings and Byron Corn, loaded the breakfast provisions and started on what they thought was the road to "Red Bluff". Thirty minutes of driving brought to these "Arkansas travelers" no recognition of land-marks that would have told them they were ' app-roaching the Bluff. After a brief strategy conference and the advice of a local native it was decided they were obviouSly on the wrong road to the destination. A quick 180 degree turn

That year they also had a fine outing at Red Bluff and bought books for an orphan's home library in Kansas. How ·is that for a year's activities for a newly formed club? Since then they have had many excellent club projects: selling Harding's home study Bible courses in Searcy and nearby towns; inserting a copy of the Harding Alma mater in the college song books; and starting a bul– letin which is mailed regularly to the Galaxy alumni. The Galaxy Club colors are blue and white. They have their regular club meetings on Monday night and their club sponsor is Dr. Kern Sears.
