Excerpt from The Calyx, 1920-21 At Washington and Lee University the Treasurer is at once collector, paymaster, purchasing agent, and a dozen other functionaries all combined into one. And with the increase in the' size of the school, his duties show no signs of becoming less multitudinous. Apparently there are few subjects on which he is not called on to pass judgment or to give advice. The demands thus made upon this official are many and varied and require such qualifications as are possessed by few. Indeed, in these times. When filthy lucre has been the means of corrupting many, the need is doubly felt for men whose motto is something else than, The smell of money is good, from whatsoever source it comes Or, as Juvenal puts it.
