44 THE HISTORY OF WAKE FOREST COLLEGE
In a snappy piece of prose, Justice Stacy wrote:
Finally, after all is said and done the case comes to a relatively narrow
compass. Is the contract submitted for adjudication valid and enforceable?
The trial court said it was. We approve. Wake Forest College has had a long
and honorable career, and whether it nestles in a forest of Wake or stands on
a knoll in Forsyth, its mission will remain a quest for truth and a crusade for
simple right. We would not deny to this great institution and to those whose
faith and good works have made it possible, this vista of a new dawn and
this vision of a new
hope.5
Thus was consummated the arrangement which would take Wake
Forest to Winston-Salem and to heights of excellence and reputation
it had never known before.
