College Celebrates Today McMurry celebrates its 40th anniversary as a college. On September 19 1923 this college which was located in the middle of a wheat field south of Abilene opened its door to students for the first time. During the fall term of 1923 191 students enrolled in classes as compared with the more than 1700 students who are attending McMurry today. In 1924 305 students registered and in 1925 the enrollment was 337. In 1926 with the enrollment nearing the 400-mark in the fourth session of the college the Abilene Reporter- News leported that the college "has perhaps broken more rec- ords in its few years of existence than any other institution of higher learning ever established in the Southwest."

Pinning of colors is one of the oldest traditions carried out. In this maroon and white streamers arc pinned on each football player by his wife or date. This symbolized the old Indian tradi- tion of Redskins going into battle with the paleface covered with the war-paint of their tribe. Originally the ceremony was held at Wah Wahtaysce Park around a totem pole. The totem pole first used has been replaced by a new one which is kept in the Old Main Building.
