Psychology
Who is the girl to meditate over jokes and then laugh the Loudest? – Becky –
Who writes her “day by day” account of independent study one hour before it’s due? -Becky-
Who can pack cosmetics, hair dryer, and a hat or two in one traincase for a week-end trip to Atlanta -only Becky-
And who can manage a full academic schedule, ten hours a week of work in the alumnae office (with coffee breaks and perusals of the society page), nightly trips to the “Pig,” and frequent visits home to Nashville (the big city with two traffic lights)? -our own fun-loving and friend-making Becky.
She is a bubble of vitality, a portrait of true goodness, and a symbol of honor and truth which all could use as a model. Becky can have no unsolvable problems; for with the objectivity of a psychology major, the warm understanding of a person who loves people, and the eager anticipation of her all-white wedding and fifty years in a full nine-passenger Chevrolet station wagon, Becky has already found her way of life and living.

Psychology Club, 1963, Wesleyan College, Macon, GA <br> "The objective of a study of PSYCHOLOGY is to understand the abilities, motives, thoughts, and actions of people. Understanding of self and of others is a primary goal. The study is designed to help a person in all areas of life, especially as a Christian, as a homemaker, and as a member of a civic and social group."

Newspaper Staff, 1963, Town and Country, Wesleyan College, Macon, GA <br> The Name Town and Country dates back to the dates when the Wesleyan campus was in two locations, with the fine arts students in the conservatory in town, and the liberal arts students here at Rivoli. Since that time, of course, the entire school has been moved out to the present location, but the name of the newspaper has stayed with us. The "T and C" is published by the students bi-monthly and endeavors to represent the entire student body in its news coverage and in its editorial policies. The staff is composed of volunteers with a special emphasis being given to any major requirements except for advanced staff positions. In spite of its lack of professional guidance however, the paper has proven to be of almost professional quality and has shown the maintenance of high standards throughout.

The March, 1963 edition of Town and Country included the note, “A word to the wise: Let’s be careful about those trips to the “city” with three traffic lights, Becky Bullard! By the way, what’s that on your fourth finger, left hand?”

And the April 25 edition followed up with this:

TELL IT!!
by Hilda Jackson

All year I’ve told it— everything, that is, that wasn’t cut for one reason or another. And there’s one other important thing that I haven’t told — what are all there ring clad, pin clad, or the left out loafer and sack clad seniors going to do now that they have poise, personality, and an education?

This summer is absolutely terrifying filled with the clang, clang of wedding bells. Ann Hutchings is marrying her old professor Jack Bauer in June. Elaine Evatt and Ronnie are taking their infamous train early in June, also. Barbara Johnston will set up housekeeping in their plush chevy with the piped in music after June 23. Nancy Williams and Ned can save gas money this summer — ^they won’t have to drive back to the dorm at 12:00 each night — they’re getting married, too. Carolyn Akin, our future alumnae president, will become Mrs. John Henderson in June of 1963!

Diane Lumpkin stands alone in July unless Becky Bullard has chosen this month. (Becky was out with HIM when I wrote this). Diane and Dewitt have chosen July 6 to make that final payment on the king-size bed.
