Title The Letter on the Mountain
Description be taken. Someone suggested that the animal might be used to begin a small zoo. Its legs were so badly injured, that it could not be saved. The body was taken to a taxidermist where it was mounted. Later the bob cat was exhibited in the college trophy case. Some students, not knowing the difference, thought it represented the "Badgers" of the Snow College Athletic Teams. The clearing job was finally finished on Thursday, May 20. Friday was the Great Day! All male members of the school, teachers and students alike, scaled the hill, armed with picks, shovels and crowbars. The task now was to col-lect suitable rocks and form the edge of the long antici-pated block "S". This was readily accomplished. By noon a distinct outline of an "S" appeared. It was two hundred fifty feet high and one hundred feet wide. Next year's student body would fill in the outline with more rocks and cement them into place. Not until that was accomplished, could the letter be whitewashed. Upon its final completion it would stand as a proud symbol of Snow College. And it stands to this day, a stately white block "S", reminding us of "Our college days so bright with rays of white and gold."1 1 Last sentence of the college song. Sources: The Snowdrift.
