Their speaker ' was Dr. Pierce supervisor of special education I IOtUUOn Brothers " Teachers And Preacher - Had Interestine Colleae Da.* WAKE FOREST — 'Boodle Inn" was revisited by one oi Γ. > founding fathers, school principal Gerald L. Johnson, . in! tlie brief homecoming visit \\;.s the highlight of a sightsee ing trip for his eighth grade students. Johnson was one of the iounders of "Boodle Inn", a »oust with an amazing "3 week history" near the Baptist Southeastern Theological Sem inary, the site of which was foimerly the old Wake Forest College campus. "tjoociie inn,' now empty, has a forlorn and forgotten appearance, and a "Fur Rjnt" sign tacked on the front stoop. But a number of years ago 0 differed greatly. It had the ihini of a newly constructed house, and was literally bulg ing at the rafters with coll ig« students intent on furthering th« it education. "Wi were a closely knitted Croup that worked well togeth er." Johnson said as he gave his eighth grade students nid the;»· parent-chaperones an on the-spot history lesson at the ftuiiMiit, white frame house on The Wake Forest-Durham road. "I don't recall who gave our house that odd name of "B<iod U Inn." Someone suggested Hie name and it stuck." Johnson told of how he and his two brothers, Jimmy and Akx, of Latta, S. C., with t*vo «on· ms and five soon-to-bt ■ «n.rr.mates from across North Ic.irolina, built the entire 2 Plory house within 3 weeks. 1 1'ht reason for the limited time of «(instruction was that the er»w got a let· start and lb· ■luuH was neeaeo ior u place to live when the 1947 colleR·.* . l. rm began. Another bit of interesting in oimation learned was the fact , ihat none of the boys had any real knowledge of carpentry v«ork . The college students coatrib uted around $130.00 each for a total sum of $1300.00 with which they purchased mater ials. paint and electrical sup plies and then went about con structing the house. "I was the one who owned flashlight and they made me the head elec trician," Johnson said. A story of these enterprising college youth and the housj ihat hard work and determin Ptior. built was given wide spread publicity. "Wf wanted a college educa tion," Johnson told his stu dmts, "and we were willing to work for it. With doing our own cooking and cleaning our living expenses over a 3-y*ar period averaged about $1C.00 per month per person. And we ;»te good, too!" Four years after the houao was built it was sold for $3000. «10 whith was split among the charter members. Conducting a guided tour through t h e sturdy fram j building, Johnson pointed out built-ins that had been added . . . namely closet space . since he and his classmates had graduated and moved a '.vay. The "master" bedroom, oc cupied by the student with the most seniority, had a floor-to ceiling bookcase which parti· culcrly impressed the school principal . "Such brilliant scholars and carpenters as we were, sumi om should have thought of a hoekcase for all those book?, it would have been a great help.' "Don't remember exactly hjw j wo did it,''· lie told the group that filled to overflowing the lclatively small kitchen-dining :oom, "but we had a table rig ßeci up in here that would seat i2 persons easily." The stu dents listened, but hesitantly accepted their teacher's stai·; ment after looking at the limit ed space. The construction crew-ro! lege classmates, who too* turns as manager and house keeper, have long since gradu ated and followed their cl.oice of vocations. The majority of them were in the 1950 gradua tion class. Get aid L.
