AL]MA MATEE— MILLSAPS.
('Air "My Bonnie.")
I. All over the land of the cotton.
And down where the magnolias stand,
The fame of our dear alma mater
Is ringing- far over the land.
Millsaps College for me, for me.
Millsaps College for me.
Her halls where our memories linger,
The friendships there made long ago.
The purple and whit? of her banner.
Are cherisnea wherever we go.
3. And when in the years vi the future,
Fond memory turns to the past,
The days that we spent at old Millsaps,
Will vet be the brightest at last.

"The li'orld knoK's nothing of its i;rsat<'st men."
He walks over the campus in an air of supreme importance,
and seems to expect all lower classmen to gxcet him as a man of
great authority. Thinks he has the Faculty fooled. Tries to im-
press upon all, who do not know better, that he is a great ladies'
man. Feels that he has few equals and no superiors. Thinks him-
self smart and good-looking. Especially fond of Mathematics and
Latin. Oakley Scholarship Prize, 1905 ; Assistant in Latin and

"Fatty." He is a man of might but not of muscle. Debating
is his hobby, but he lacks the ability to luokl his thoughts into words.
He has some of the characteristics of an owl, in that his head is
his most prominent possession, and in that he stays awake at night
and takes his naps during the day — never was there such an old
head on such a slender body. Club Editor Bojiasiiela, 1905-06;

"Jim." Does stunts in Jackson Sucietx'. From lus mocking-
bird month and legs one would think him a proficient musician,
but lack of energy and indifference buried iiis talent. Always pres-
ent when most vmdesiralilc and absent when most needed. To hear
him talk one would think that those who escaped his incendiary
threats would indeed be fortunate, but careful investigation reveals
the fact that the object of his anger is nofj unsafe. His impressive
"Let me see you a moment" always reminds spectators that nothing-
can be made a secret. .Assistant business Manager Bi:>1!-\shela,

he will need a work, the first year, with a parsonage on it. His

He is consciously dignified. Conceals under a gruff, brusque
manner a sympathetic nature and serio-comic propensities. Favor-
ite expression, "By Gummies!" Shy and timid when around the
ladies. To bother others and to Inmi seems to be the height of his
ambition. Aspires to be a college professor. He is in love but
tries to conceal it. A diligent student, and some say he is smart. Is

business man, and has won distinction as business manager of Bo-
BASHELA ( ?). His natural expression is a weird grin. Has gotten a
great deal of training from his college course, but has made the
fatal mistake of falling in love with a co-ed. Is shy and has noth-
ing to say in a crowd of girls, yet he comes away declaring he has
had the best time of any one. Made a very euviable record as pre-
siding officer in his literary society ( ?). He really thinks himself an
excellent writer. Business Manager Bobasjiela,- Associate Editor

Faculty that Henry W. Grady was truly a .<^reat and wonderful
man. An orator and a vocalist and never misses an opportunity to
display his voice. He has proved to the entire satisfaction of all
who know him that studying is not the only side there is to a col-
lege life. Whoever told him he was good-looking basely deceived
him. Won ;\Iillsaps Medal, 1903 ; President L. L. S., third term,

"Alack." "AIcKee at the College." Has been here for years,
but the Faculty has decided to give him his degree this year, pro-
vided he passes in Sophomore Math. He has too much religion to
l)reach other men's sermons, hut the general impression of his au-
diences is that religion is all tliat he possesses. Fears that his head
will be bald ere he can procure for himself a better half. Bearing
a sanctimonious dignity, he moves among his fellow students. He
spends a great deal of his time talking to the girls over the tele-
phone, and some of them say he has stickability. \ ice-President

"Red" is a great politician, but doesn't think anybody knows
it. He has the bearing of a great lawyer, and if he were only given
plenty of "weed" and a stack of law books he would do honor to
the profession. He has been accused of being an orator, but of some
of his speeches it cannot be ascertained whence they come nor
whither they go. So forgetful that he sometimes forgets his own
name. A curious mixture of common sense, laziness and good
nature. Anniversarian G. L. S. ; President G. L. S., third term ;

praise. Consistenc_v is a jewel with which he is not endowed : he
aggressively condemns certain acts of his friends but does the same
things himself without feeling a particle of indignation. He is
quick to detect the eccentricities and weaknesses of others and
seizes upon them with wicked joy much to tlie confusion of their
possessors. His sarcasm is unequaled anil his unmerciful and re-

SENIOI? CLASS HISTORY
Now It came Vj pass in those days
as the time drew near when Naughty
Seven shculd receive the name of Sen-
iors that the instructors of the Colleg'e
Cjuestionecl one another sa^'ing", "Is it
right to detain these students another
year, seeing that as Juniors they had
greater wisdom than aU the Seniois wh.o
before tlieir time departed from tiiese
walls?" ,\nd they .vere greatly per-
plexed and sorely troubled.
Hut Naughty Seven, when they li.'ard
how the instructors debated among ■them-
selves, sent word and said unto tlieni.
"Cease from troubling, neither be any
longer peri)lexed, but even as the rest
have done, likewise permit us to continue
our course through Seniordom so that
the heathen Junior and Prep, seeing our
greatness, may be persuaded to follow
in our steps, and in this manner increase
the glory of the College."
And when they heard this tli? in-
structors were exceeding glad and de-
bated among themselves no more ,vhat
they should do but even as the members
of Naughtv vSe\-en admonished, that ;he\-
Now in that year it came to pass that
a great hue and cry was raised at ^ilill-
saps over foot-ball, and a decree went
forth that all the College should play,
both Preps and Freshmen, Sophomores
and Juniors, and likewise the lortlly
Now when the news of this decree
reached the camp of the Juniors tnere
was great rejoicing, for thev were man\-
in numlier, and in stature they were like
Goliath. likewise the Preps and Fresh-
men rejoiced with an exceeding great
joy, for they had many and strong men.
1-lut when the Seniors heard it they
were sad, for they were scholars and
thought not of rough games ; also they
were few in number and frDUi much
study had waxed feeble in -trength.
Nevertheless they took counsel among
themselves and conversing one with an-
other, said, "In great thnigs we have
reaped success, in fool-ball we will not
fail utterly "
And straightway they semi a mes-
senger unto the manager of athle'ics,
sa\-ing: "Place the Seniors also on your
schedule of games, for we too will jilay
foot-ball, and we will eat nothing, neith-
er will we drink nor sleep until the cliam-
pionship cup be safe in our co-ed's
I'.nt when the Juniors heard this they
laughed and said. "It is a joke.''
Now it happened that the Seniors met
fit St upon the gridiron the Sopnoinores
and overcame them aiul sent them in
shame back to their comrades. I'ut the
Juniors ?nd Preps 'vvho beheld the game
mocked the Seniors and said. "It is noth-
ing, the Sophomores also are \veakl;ngs,
and bv chance were they overthrown hy
liiit it came to pass that when the
Seniors encountered the I'reps and put
them to shame even as they iiad done
the Sophomores, there was mucii sui prise
for the Preps were a people skided in
foot-ball, and their fame had been noised
abroad throughout the land, and the peo-
]ile marveled at it, saying, "These Sen-
iors play like professionals and not like
lucn unaccustomed to the game."
Now as the day drew nigh when the
Juniors were to pla}- the Seniors, the
Junior Captain, about the eighth or ninth
hour ul the evening, sayeth to his fa-
ther, "J have a hard Greek lesson. 1
go to read it with a classmate." And
straightway he goeth to the room of Rog-
ers, the Psychologist ( the same was the
Senior left end), and seeks to frighten
him saymg, "You Seniors olay foot-ball
but poorly. It was luck that you beat
the Preps, the Juniors will treat you oad-
ly. Think you that the Senior ends can
contend with Adams and Kirkland ; 1
also am a great player and it grieves me
to consider how you will fare wlien in
the heat of the game 1 strike you." And
straightway upon ending his speech he
givetii the horse laugh.
But it came to pass that as the Jun-
ior Captain maketh this speech there com-
eth into the room John, the Senior cen-
ter, whose surname is Weems, and he
being a good spokesman answered and
said, "Cease your vain boasting, have
you not read that 'much prme goeth be-
fore a fair? Think you that Terrell and
jNeill will sleep while your heavy men
are striking our ends? Saw you not how
Berry and Loch bore themselves against
the Preps?' And though I be a modest
man and am accustomed to do great
deeds rather than to boast of them, yet
verily I say unto you 1 am no babv and
in to-morrow's game I will butt your cen-
ter so high that the birds of the air will
nest on his carcass before he return to
solid ground, and if after that he sliall
strive to hinder my passage througn your
line I will toss him so high that the
earth's gravitation will cease to attract
him and he shall become a heavenly body
and revolve around the sun. even as the
astronomers write is the case with
Now at this saying the Junior wa;^
greatly astonished, for being a Junior he
was ignorant and knew naught of the
teachings of Astronomy and tirerefore
imderstood not how this thing could
happen. And he departed from theru and
went forth into the black and dark jiight
still marvelling at the Senior's words.
And it came to pass that on tne fol-
lowing day when the Seniors gathered
together to play the Juniors the Jmiiors
boasted greatly and sought to guy tiiem
and wagged their heads at them saying,
"If the Seniors' voices be like their legs
they should sing well, for the}' nave legs
like mocking birds."
But when the game began the Jmiiors
were not able to stand before the Sen-
iors, but they were driven back even as
the chaff before the whirlwind; they were
defeated utterly, and great was their
shame, so that they became a shaking
of the head and a byword to all the Col-
lege. And after that day when a Junior
meeteth a Senior on the campus he pull-
eth his hat over his eyes and shunneth
Now it came to pass that when the
Seniors again played the Juniors the
Juniors had rested a long while but the
Seniors were bruised and weary from
much playing neither did they try very
hard, so that on this day they did not
prevail against the Juniors.
I'ut when the season endeth and ex-
aminations draw nigh the manager of
Athletics reckoneth the percentage of
the teams and lo ! the Seniors have won.
So he inviteth a. great preacher to come
from town to the morning chapel, and
the preacher came and said many and
wise things, both to the Seniors and to
the (ithers and with honeyed words he
delivered the cup to the Senior co-ed.
And great joy prevailed among the
Seniors, and that night their co-ed gave
a great feast and invited them and they
all went and did cat and drink and were
se:n^ior class ruorHECY.
"O force unseen but not unfelt.
How dare you now these words relate,
And why, O Muse, when we go out
Shall we be forced to meet this faie ?''
Calvin Applewhite, the first by name,
shall never fill this high estate amid those
with whom he comes in contact. We
see him as he graduates with honor from
his chosen medical institution, and all
seems to indicate for him a brilliant fu-
ture. Lo ! but Calvin finds, as many other
men have done, a vast diflference between
the theoretical and the practical. His
youthful ambitions fail him, and we rind
hmT content with the routine work of a
lonely country practice. Day and night
he answers !iis official calls, disappointed
i'l the fact that in none of tli«m is he
abit to put forth those theories wnich he
has in .store. He finds his life' a burden
and his professional duties a never-end-
infi experiment. He does not hesitate
to prescribe but never knows the disease.
Perhaps all of us have been wonder-
ing; what shall become of "Fatty" Buck-
strom. "Fatty" hails from the pmey
woods and back to the piney woods he
must go. He often dreams that he shall
make a great lawyer and win distinction
in the jiolitical life. Personally we thmk
him worthy of greatness, but somehow
he utterly fails to impress upon the pub-
lic his importance. The only case which
he successfully presents to a jury duiing
bis whole professional career is the one
in which he sues fci a divorce from tiie
woman he has married. This case, )iow-
evcr, was not decided on law and cvi-
tknce, but rather on the general appear-
ance of the victim. In disappointment
we find him, an old man, recurnmg to
his native haunts where he is allowed to
develop the much-needed physical nian,
mourning the fact that few men leceive
tiieir just reward in this life.
As we dip into the future anJ con-
template the real in the life of Jim Eerry,
we must say that he shall be successful
ii dollars and cents can be a measure of
success. Jim has ever been endowed
with, wonderful business qualities. This
natural tact leads him into the coninier-
cir! life. From a small beginning he
early climbs to the top. He easily solves
the problems of modern commercialism,
aiul even finds an entrance into the world
of "high finance." In his old age, with
his millions about him. he throws aside
his complex business thoughts, and la-
n.ents the fact that he has taken buch a
narrow view of life. He has figured in
dollars and cents, he has thought in dol-
lars and cents, his life can only be ex-
pressed in dollars and cents — a money
ni;icliine. He passes from us with tlie
tl'.ought that what a man does is but
the expression of what he is.
We find Bright in after years still
possessed with the power to reason witli-
oui a follower, neither has he lost the
unliendable dignity which is so charac-
teristic of the man. He is faithful to
lii^ chosen profession and devotes his life
to the ministry, lint unfortunately he
dees not learn that the greatest life is
the siin])lest life, that the greatest ser-
mon is the simplest sermcm. His foun-
tain of big words never fails to flow.
His complexity is too great for his au-
dience, and they go from him wonder-
ing and guessing if this man does not
live out of his proper age, but they aie
content with the lessons of earnestne.>s
and profundity which he so deeply im-
Bullock has displayed wonderful pow-
ers for accjuiring and retaining know i-
edge. He enters the fields of activity tu
which he so earnestly aspired and is con-
tent to be called a teacher. If knowl-
edge of the subject was the only iv-
cjuirement he shall be eminently success-
ful If all lessons could be learned by
al'sorption we might well envy tho.-,e
entrusted to his care. But him, too. we
find deficient. He fails to impart what
he knows. He is not able to give ex-
pression to those great truths that h'.'
has in store. Doomed with the law that.
"A thought unexpressed is a thougiu
that shall die," he retires from this fiei'.
to spend his life alone, enjoying himself
all by himself in his own original way.
"Johnnie" Carlton is slow to take on
manhood. With a boyish look and a boy-
ish, nature he passes through this life, all
along this arduous way he tries to assume
a manlv bearing. He was old enough to
be a Senior, but somehow he could not
look like one. His preppy ways fail to
indicate that he belonged to the SeniC'-
state. During life he tries many projects
but in none of them does he attain ary
marked success. He gives us an exam-
ple of an innocent failure and teaches
us the lesson that one need not hope to
develop into what he not by nature.
We follow "Jack" Frost as he contin-
uall}' ].)ractices those habits which n..'
formed in College. For six years an act-
ive member of the "Buttinsky" Club, he
proves its most loyal promoter, and even
ti;es to impress upon the world the im-
portance of its principles. He later ue-
comes a composer and wins distinction
as a vocalist. His masterpiece, "But-
tinsky," gives to the world in an attract-
ive form the great principles for wdiich
he lives. This piece he gladly renders
at every opportunity granted him. His
wide-spread rendering of his cherished
product, soon awikes the world to knov/
that as time flies changes come, and that
to "fnitt in" is better than to be prim
We now turn to the member of our
class who never decides things. He
lea\-es College well equipoed, but instead
o' entering direcily some special line of
work, we find him weighing the several
vocatious in his fruitless attempt to de-
cide to which one he shall give his tal-
ents. He teaches school — perhaps as a
stepping-stone to something higher, or
more likely that he may have time for
further thoughts upon his life work. He
becomes a journalist but is slill unde-
cided and devotes his last and only
thoughtful days to the writing of a booic
which is but the expression of his life

count for anything he will easily outstrip

call him "parson," but he will never need
a parsonage. He is a hard student, but
never learns the art of study. His ser-
mons are dry and uninteresting and
prove a welcome cure for insomnia. He
never reaches the main point because of
his lengthy discussions of details. He
will never be great because he is better

Old -Red" Neill's girlish giggle shall
never fail him. Jolly and good-natured,
with just enough seriousness to over-
balance his clumsy carelessness, ne
spends many years just on the inside of
the ragged edge. Careless about his pro ■
fession he does nothing for many yeais.
At last he awakes to the fact that he is
destined to be a physician. He at once
sets about to regain lost time, when old
Dame Carelessness steps in and offers
him a poor pair of pill-bags and a dozen
doses of drugs, tmd thus equipped he

Sam Osborne is stubby in lonn and
stubby by nature. The very essence of
indifterence. Ide has many opportunities
to render himself useful, but to none of
them does he attach importance. \\ hat
little he accomplishes is accomplished
mere by friendly chance than by per-
sonal efforts. For many years he leads
this easy, indifferent life, never exerting
himself to grasp a proposition or take
advantage of an opportunity, lie is
forced to Ijecome a store-keeper, but for
lack of effort is never equal to the great-
est problems of modern commercialism.
He never wins favor with the girls bo-
cause his time is spent in admiring him-
The world is h.ard on Pierce. Uncle
Sam does not love him because ne has

Honduras does not know him as a cit-
izen, but grants him the privilege to
plant cocoanuts and har^'est bananas.
"A man without a country," he sets o:;t
in his efforts to realize the fulfillment of
his college dreams. A world empire is
foimed with Pierce as emperor. Onc-^
the world was hard on him, but now
the tide has changed and the world
must do him homage.

She further fancies that the fullesc field
for her and those fitful forces which so
fully fill her nature may be found m
field of fiction. Five and fifty years she
labors, forming plots and framing pict-
ures. Failing fully fame to find amid
her former fancies, she finally fancies
that she will spend her future days lu
an effort to find the fame and fortune
of the one and fifteen members of her
faithful class. She only found the former
Rogers thinks he is destined to be

success of banking. Finally convinced
that he has been a failure as a banker

Grover Terrell is the next. \\"e re-
g;et to make reference to him. Pie pic-
serts to us that type of man who gives
general disappointment. Millsaps was
hesitant to receive him and most sadlv
disappointed did she turn him out to
disappoint the world. He is one of pro-
portion somewhere but defies mankind
tc find where it is. He disappoints his
friends when he tells them of wonder-
ful chemical discoveries that he is going
to make, and proceeds to singe his eye-
brows in his attempt to see if gunpowder
will support combustion. He spends
many, many years in those scientific in-
vestigations and finally blesses the world

From the class of 1907 goes forth
one of Falstaffian proportions, to whom
none of the things that he learned in
College sticks except his winning ways,
his charming chat, his jolly jokes and
flabby fat. He goes to a little country
town ten miles from any railroad, where
he can always be found when new light
is wanted on some base-ball subject. He
has more money and less brass than any
man in his class. Out in that little town
of the wilderness, he is content to spend
h's long life tickling the fancy of all who
know him, by his cheerful chuckle when
he drops his chubby chin. John Weems
will be surprised when the only girl he
ever loved awakes him to the lolly of
matrimony and to the fate of a bachelor.
Why "Old Blaze" Williams worked
so hard on his man speeches will never
cease to be a wonder to those with whom
lie i^• acquainted. Wirt wanted to become
a lawyer, and became bald-headed in the
attempt to equip himself for this profes-
sion. He finds that his love for the coun-
try and the attractions of farm life are
too strong for him to resist. He seems
to enjoy farming, but his impractical
methods are the source of much laughter
among his jolly neighbors. In a scien-
tific attempt to revolutionize the art of
imile shearing, he was unconsciously
hurled into oblivion by the more scientific
manner in which "Old Maud" had learn-
ed to use her only weapon of defense.
We 've been at College now some time, for sure.
We know the ins and outs of College life,
Its ups and downs, its joys and pleasures, too,
Because we 've been at scho(;)l for quite a while.
We came here strangers, timid, rough, unknown —
Mere boys who ne"er had wise nor earnest thought
Nor spoke except to say some foolish word.
The folks, who saw those boys four years ago,
Who laughed because their pants were too short —
In other words, because of city dress
And city manners knew they naught at all.
Also because there were a score or more
Of things that modern city folks do use
Of which they had not even heard before —
Those folks, I say, thought not what dormant strength
There lay behind that stupid stare, unwaked.
They little thought the campus e'er would mourn
Because their faces were not seen again ;
That they would bring old Millsaps fame and honor,
,\nd to the college heart endear themselves.
But of all that we 've done and more besides.
We will not tell you all — 'twould take too long —
'Bout how the laundry wagim we did paint
One night, and take doc's buggy all apart.
If you but knew the record black of deeds
We 've done I think you 'd say that we were bad.
We 're not, for know the saw, "Boys will be boys."
I bet you would do as bad or worse than we
If you but had the chance or were not 'fraid.
Now listen ! We have fooled the Profs or else
They are good actors, for they say this class
Of all is best and seem to speak the truth.
They think they know us boys, alas ! poor dears.
We can but love them though. We 've found them men
Both ^ood ami true, net oyres as first we thought;
We were afraid of them when we were "new."
But that 's all past and gone ; we worried them ;
\\'e ragged them too. then busted on top of that !
We got our share of honors, perhaps you know.
We care no longer sucu small things to seek,
We go in now for only great big things.
For, don't you know, our learning we have got.
Enough of grits and gravy, so-called steak
And other stuffs alike, we say, we 've had.
We bid adieu to base-Mil field, to gym,
To nearly every sport we here have played.
Of foot-ball games pciiiaps we've won our last —
Because we 've got our education now.
But may we cherish jtill the meni'ries dear
Of college life, of pranks, of fears and scrapes
And jokes which added zest to our careers,
And often may we meet in these old haunts.
Nor may our faces ever strange become
To those that saw and knew us here in school.
But we are through, and, since we needs must go.
To others leave we all our dog-eared books.
We hope some help to them wall be those lines
We interspersed adown their thumb-marked leaves —
They represent hard hours of toil by us.
Others may whittle upon our old boards
And chew on our old cow, take our zeros.
Oh dear! I wonder if they 11 take our girls?
May they with pleasure walk or ride along
Until at last they too. ITke us, can say.
"We 're done with Alath and Greek, with Latin too.
The sciences those we "ve tried. The weary way
Along a stale old college course we 've trod."

JLTNIOK CLASS IIISTOKV.
In SL'i)tcinber, 1904, th^M'e appeared
on th( campus a band ot aspirmg youths,
unknown to the outside as well as to the
College world and to each other, ;ixty-
six ir. number, "verdant" yet "all on
stuciy bent." While the college men were
joyously greeting each other with hearty
grips these homesick individuals found
themselves objects of curious scrutiny.
It was indeed "with fear and trembling"
that they passed through t.ie horrors of
entrance examinations. 'I hey gazed in
awe upon the august faces now grown
Their fear was to a great degree re-
moved after the Y. M. C. A. reception,
where they became acquainted with their
college mates. Thev found that 'here
were "Preps" actuallv lower than tliey,
and were thrilled with an inexpressible
sensation of joy when they were first
caliec' "College men." This was the
beginning of the Class of 1908. Our
name: were placed upon the rolls of all
the various college organizations, and
\v; took active part in all the different
phases of college life. We were equally
diligent whether on the athletic fifld or
tre;iding on foot (or riding?) over the
rocky ways of Cicero and Xenophon, or
responding in "Alalh" to the call: "The
following will please go to the b^)ar(l."
We really made a bright record in that
first year that now seems so long, long
When we returned as "Sophs," al-
thorigh some had dropped out and we
had lost our only "co-ed" We were not
devoid of class spirit, Init felt almo.^t
equal to the Seniors. I lowever, when
we began to battle with sines anil cosines
and when we heard the answer: "fhat '&
very, very bad," as the Latin professor
reached for his grade book, we began
to realize that we were not altogether
sages, but still had something to iearn.
As for oratory, one would think that
Demosthenes had been resurrected if he
chanced to listen to the stream of Soph-
omcric eloquence as it poured -forth in
licuntiful profusion in June, 1900. Sure-
1\- there are great statesmen, yea, tven.
I'residents in embryo for future gener-
ation among the members of ihis noble
September, "oC, witnessed the entry of
thj Class of 1908 upon an era of almost'
unprecedented ( ?) success. Although
our number is not more than iialf what
it v.'as just two years ago, those of us
who remain are proud of our Class and
have high ideals for it. We indeed count
ourselves fortunate to be honored with
the membership of a "co-ed" once more.
The present finds Juniors at the head
in almost every department — as Literary
Society presidents and anniversarians,
Commencement debaters. President of
Athletic Association and officers and
teachers of Y. M. C. A. While thus we
ha\e been busy in the literary line we
have not neglected athletics. In foot-
ball we ])ushed the Seniors for the cham-
pionship. The champion basket - ball
team at Ruston, Louisiana, in December
was composed principally of members of
Oiiv Class, and we also claimed the Class
basket-ball pennant. Now that the base-
"ball season is on hand, we feel sure that
the Class of 'oS will win her share of
honors on the diamond, liut our great-
est honor is yet unmentioned. The I'ac-
ulty has selected a member of our Class
tj represent the College in the State In-
ter-collegiate (Jratorical Contest, which
lakes place at Columbns in May. This
is the highest honor given by ttie Col-
lege, and is usually claimed by a Senior.
Realizing that it would take books
to write a complete histor)-, I have only
made brief mention of a few of the many
laurels won by this illustrious Class. Al-
though the tasks set for us have not al-
ways been performed and the lessons to
be learned have too often been neglected,
yei' ali of us realizing that our education
lies not wholly in books, should truly
say that from our College life we: obtain
a far deeper insight into the future than
could ever have been our share had not
our alma mater guided us through all
thes!. years : and to all in the memory
of the future the time will be a pleasant
reach upon the varied distance of life's
A Prep, a string, a defunct snake,
A breathless pause, then presto !
O coed, a shriek, a sermon, a meek
And sadder, wiser Preu O '
Event propitious, frauglit with liope of zest,
Came in Marcli to Millsaps men. nauglit seven.
To see the sons of earth and stars of heaven,
Whitworth Seniors louffht : we were so blest.
Trolly-riding went we, even-paired.
Haply, but happily for those who shared
Smiles of ladies stately, whose rich tresses.
Wind-blown, impaired sedately chaste caresses.
While they, dear girls, viewed glories celestial,
Beheld we, bold men, beaulies terrestial.
Peering, said "she": "Oh, isn't A^enus cute?"
At once "he" felt Dan Cupid shoot.
Campus, town surveyed, around we strayed,
Compliments were passed on one another.
Whatever else engaged, this mind was stayed — •
The great command to keep: "Love one another."
Why not let us hope that good abiding
May come to those that are as yet unplighted?
Whereas on life's broad sea we are still tiding,
'Tis time our 'oetter half should soon be sighted.
But prate I not of what is all sublime,
Queenly charms fiive i^rought on me weird seizure.
Should you complain at surli a change in rhyme,
My mind possessed, will right mistakes at leisure.

■'VVhy weep ye at the hoard, Sophie?
Why weep ye at the board?
I "11 send ye yet another day,
When ye are not so floored,
When ye are not so ffoored. Sophie,
And rattled in your mind."
But, aye, he let the tear^ run down
And tore his liair behind.
"Now wipe those Preppish tears away.
And rub your work all out ;
You 've made a zero 'fore to-day
And none should see you pout ;
And tho' ye looK much like a clown,
Ye have a little mind."
But, aye, he let the tears run down
And tore his hair behind.
"I 've ge'en zeroes by the peck,
-And all are richly due.
Ye could not prove, to save your neck,
That one md one are two.
Now quit this running ofif to town
And give to Alath your mind."
But, aye, he let the tears run down
And tore his nair behind.
'Twas time ot trouble ir, the land,
"Exams" were in the air.
All Preps and Seniors were at hand.
But Sophie was not there.
The teachers aought inni all aroun'.
But him they could not find,
For Sophie 'd cut and quit the town
And left his hair behind !
HlfSTORV or THE CLASS OF *(>;».
To the average student of Geography,
it i^ a matter of Httle consequence where
the average stream rises or whither it ih-
rects its course, but wlien it com^s to
sucli great streams as the -Mississippi or
the Amazon, it is (|uite different. I:s
CGinse and source are alike viagerly
soiight. it is thus with the student of
history. Tlie ordinary institution chal-
lenges no especial attention, but when
it comes to a great organization like t;ie
class of '09, the admiring multitudes de-
mand all the details of its histor}- — no
matter how trivial they may be.
I realize that in order to write a true
am! complete history, it is necessai}' to
giy^ the date of birth, h.ome and a bri.f
sketch of the life of the character treated.
It had been my purpose to give these de-
tails, but scarcely had I begun compiling
my data before 1 discovered that our fair
re]3resentatives in Section I. were, with-
out exception. Hearing the age of si.^teen.
Fearing that the ancient proverb "that
an old head is wisdom's storehouse'
might cause my recital of our unexcelled
ability to be looked upon with a slight
degree of suspicion, I have concluded to
deprive the reader of the knowledge that
several members of our most illustrious
class are now upon the threshold of —
their sixteenth summer. Then too. some
say that we have been so constant!}' in
the limelight and that the world has
Vv'atched our course with so much enthu-
siasm that our history need not be wriL-
ten in detail.
^^'e are veritable giants in Math an'.!
the Classics. Sucli sharks are we that
it is rumored tliat several of our nuniljer
Avill be "lield over" another year in order
tliat we may pilot the coming class over
the rougli and rugged journe-\- und, if
p<.;.sib!e, make clear to them some of
tlie mysteries of the parabola.
\\'hile we have been unusually earnest
in tlie |)ursuit of literary activities, we
have ]3_\- no means neglected athletics.
We have played all the games — foot-
ball, base-ball, basket-ball and tennis
— very successfully. So successfid were
we in foot-ball that someone has wisely
likeneil the charge of our enemies of the
gridiron to that of the Light Brigade.
Some, for whom foot - ball was too
rough, have engaged in the less strenu-
ous sport of pony riding, ar wliich they
have become very skilful, and it would
indeed Ije hard to find a professional
eouestrian of the ring whose "stunts"
could perplex them.
\Mien we returned this year nianv of
ouv members had either fallen by the
\iayside or cast their lot in another clime,
but our ranks were replenished vvith good
and loyal members. \\"e have labored
earnestly and have alreadv begun to look
forward to the greatest event of the ses-
sion Commencement. \\'e are preparing
ou'- speeches, and when the day for their
delivery rolls around, the flood gates
of oratory will be raised.
It is truly a great class. And I doubt
not in the process of time it shall gain
in lustre until some bright numlDer Of
the constellation shall become the guid-
ing star of all those who desire eminence
in his profession.
However, I shall leave this fragment
to be completed by the Historian of the
frlin^e — ncA-er doubting that high upon
ih,' scroll (if fame there is a place secured
t'l tlie class of 'o<).
CIECUMSTANCES ALTER CASES.
"Luc\', I am ver\- inucli huit that you

"Well, niuther, even Jennie Ray went
with us, and \(>u kiK.iw she is the very
bes: girl in unr Class. We didn t think
it \\as so very bad to run otf. This is
our last session at this Sehool, and then
everybody plays pranks on the first of
"That does not exeuse you in the
least, my daughter. If \ou had refuse(i
to go possibly you might have been tlu
means of keeping the whole Class. Then
after all, what fun did you find in it :"
"Lots, mother; we had a delightful
limch in the park, and then it was fun
to think how eheap Prot. Smith must
ha\e felt when he found us all gone.
Don't you think he was surprised?"
"No more than I am, Luey. 1 want
you to go to your room and think quiet-
ly over this matter, and I am sure you
will feel very difTerently about it. You
must apologize to Prof. Smith in the
morning, and if you are not really sbriy
it will all be of no use. Sit there until
I call you."
Feeling very miserable, I went to my
room and stood by the wnidovv. If Prof.
Sniith had come along, I could nave truly
told him that I was sorry, for althougli
I could see no harm in it, I then felt
that I must have done wrong or mother
v/culd not have taken it so seriouslv.
Suddenly I was aroused from my
tlioughts by the rins:ine of the door bell.
Then in a few minutes I heard r.iother
exclaim, "Why ! Alice Green ! Where on
earth did you come from ? How glad I
am to see you ! You haven't changed a
bit, vou are the same little Alice vou used
to be." S(jnn they were seated in the
roou! just in front of mine, and I learned
that Alice Green was mother's old col-
lege chum, who)n she had not seen in
My room was separated from tlieirs
only by folding doors, and it happened
that they were slightly ajar. So as moth-
er liad told me to sit there, I could not
but hear their conversation.
They talked of what had hapjjened
since they had seen each other, of their
families and such things, but soon their
conversation drifted to their oul college'
"Alice," said mother, "you don't
know how the Class missed )-ou. We
were all so sorry that you did not re-
turn after the holidays. What fun you
did miss ! J don't think a Senior class
ever had better times than we did."
"1 was greatly disappointed when 1
found that I could not graduate with my
Class, but mother's health was failing so
rapidly, I felt it my duty to remain at
home. I have often thought of those
good times we had. Tell me about the
rest of the session. Did you have mrny
moie of those jolly feasts?"
"Alice," said mother, "I almost get
young again when I think of those c'ays.
Indeed we did, one especially. You re-
member the old Art Room where cdl of
our spreads were laid?"
"■Yes : could anyone ever forget hav-
ing to climb those four flights of stairs
"Well, eight of us girls had planned
a feast for a certain night, and in some
wav the Juniors heard of it. They were
al\\ays trying to get ahead of us, and
soon we knew that there was to be an-
other feast in the Art Room that night.
"After that we racked our Drains to
find some way to keep them from (jut-
doing us. At last Nellie Jenkins liit up-
on a plan that suited exactly. You re-
member all of those little closets around
the walls, where our Art Materials were
kept? That night we waited until we
knew it was almost time for the Janiors
to go up, then we, wrapped in sheets con-
cealed ourselves in the closets.
"Presently we heard the door being-
opened very cautiously, and silentl)' they
began to prepare their feast. Occ^ision-
ally we heard someone say something
about the Seniors having to give up their
feast From our watch through the key-
hole we saw them all sit down reavly to
begin. Then as we had before planned,
wlicn one girl turned her door knob, each
did the same, and all at once eignt white
figures appeared on all sides. Vou ought
to have heard the screams, and seen the
expression on their faces as they dashed
out of that room.
"We bolted the door, and it is u.-ciess
to tell you we enjoyed their uut.'.isted
"And Alice, do you remember Jim
Stone, who was ^lary Crane's old stand-
by, and how they used to get notes to
each other? I often wonder that nrore
of us didn't get caught up with. Seems
to me that anyone would have known
that boys didn't go walking e\-er\' after-
noon just when we did fiir notiiing.
They always knew so easily when we
had a note for them, and I Vealh- tnink
it was wonderful how notes got to their
right owners, when we gave them to
just any boy we happened to meet.
"They seemed to have read the notes
as pay for delivering them, and Jim soon
tired of that. So they determined to
try another plan. Alary promised to let
the note down from her window by a
cord, whenever lie came for it. Thi.s' al-
so brought with it a problem, how was
Afar_\- to know when he came? It was
impossible to dodge the night watches at
any set time. jMary seemed always able
to solve these problems, so she told Jim
that she would tie the cord to her little
bell, and in this way he could wake her.
"This seemed very plausible to Jim,
1nit Alary still had troubles, for she knew
that it would take more than the ringing
of a little bell to wake her. And how do
\on suppose she managed? Well, that
n.ight instead of tying the string to the
bill she tied it to her toe, and soon went
soundly to sleep.
"How long she had slept :Mary never
knew, but she was awakened by a slight
l)ull of the string. As Jim did not hear
the bell, he gave the cord a still harder
pull, then still not hearing a sound he
gave it a most awful jerk.
"Oh. what agony Mary endured, but
she suppressed her feelings and quietly
let down the letter. All the rest of that
night she tossed, unable to again close
her eyes, and early the next morning Dr.
I<ihnson was called in to see a dislocated
toe. For many days she was constantly
ren:inded of it by the loose slipper which
she was forced to wear. Afterwards poor
lin had to submit to reading second-
".\nd the night Air. Delaney called!
1 had almost forgotten about it. Hnw I
eve,- did it I don't know, but 1 did. Mr.
Delanev was John's old friend who 'Hap-
pened to pass through on his way to
Ohio. Jcihn wanted him to call, so T de-
cided to trv to get permission. \oii re-
iiKUiljcr lidw hard it was while you were
there, and towards the close of the ses-
si.in they made a rule that all permissions
nir.s: begotten from President Chambers.
"It happened that John had sent me
a liox of candy that afternoon, so this
ga\e me an idea. I knew if I wrote a
riote asking to call. President wouM im-
mediately say. "Xo," so I just wrote a
f.=w lines in a large masculine hand on
til? wrapping of the box, saying tliat he
was ill town and hoped to see nie. Then
I signed J. L. Delaney"s name to it.
■■\\'ith this I went to President Ciiam-
ber's office. To my surprise, wlien he
had finished reading tlie lines, he looked
up very pleasantly and said, 'Is he an
old friend of yours from home?" Of
course I had to boldly say 'Yes.' and then
President told me that he really saw no
objections, but catitioned nie to remem-
ber the hour.
"With President Chambers" permis-
sion 1 felt that my way was indeed clear,
but that night something happened to
change my mind. Alice, I had never
seen jNlr. Delaney, all on earth that I
knew about him was that he was John's
friend and was considered very hand-
some. To my surprise, when I reached
the parlor door, there sat President
Chambers and three strange young men,
all engaged in a conversation.
"\Miat could I do? I had told Pres-
ident that he was an old friend and now
I must prove it. Of course I hesitated,
for I had to think, and then too, I
thought that someone might call his
name. But just as I stopped, ^liss Kaven
came running down the stairs and said,
"Go on in, Anna, you look lovely to-
night. Don't stop, for you are alreadv
"I knew that I must jnit on a bold
face and try my luck. John had said
that he was handsome, so I just picked
out the handsomest man of all and rushetl
up to him. Alice, I even called him bv
his given name and told him he had not
changed any since we used to go to
school together in that little red school-
house by the lane. At first he looked a
little surprised, but by the time I had fin-
ished with my lengthy greeting, he saw
my position and startled me by asking
if that was the same old black dress I
used to wear, and why I persisted in
wearing a red rose in my hair. Truly
I had settled on the right man, aua dfter
introducing him to President Chaniners,
\\ e sat down to talk of old folks at home.
"Alice, would you believe that the
President and those gentlemen sat in the
parlor the entire evening, and although
thej seemed very much interested in
their own conversation I knew full well
that the President heard every word we
said. Once especially, just as Air. De-
laney asked me if I had heard that led
Payne and Alary Sullivan were married,
I saw the President listening, so I said,
'What, that great tall woman and that
ti.Tv little man?' Then the President and
all the others stopped to laugh. We
talked on this way continually, making
everybody laugh until I heard the stroke
01 ten. and Air. Delaney, apparently very
reluctantly, took his departure.
"C)n my way to breakfast the next
morning I met President Chambers and
he stopped me, saying 'Anna, you seem
to have enjoyed your friend's visit very
much last night. Whenever an old friend
like him is in town. I have no objection
to his calling.' "
Night alone forced mother's friend
to leave, and when mother came into
my room, I had lighted the lamp. Her
face was beaming as she said, "Lucy,
m\- old room-mate at Harding has '^pent
the afternoon with me, and you don't
knov' what a pleasant time we iiave bad."'
"Yes, mother." I said, "don't Niink
thrt I was eavesdropping, for I would
not do so for anything, but you remem-
ber you told me to sit here quietly until
you called me. so I could not keep fsom
Ilea ring and from thinking how times
b.ave changed since you were a girl."
I did not have to apologize to Prof.
Smith- the next dav.

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
The 26th of September, 1906, found
a forlorn - looking group of Freshmen
assembled with the old students in the
College Chapel. We eould easdy be dis-
tinguished, for we were standing about
with our hands in our pockets and re-
garding the old students with a mixture
of awe and bewilderment. How we
longed for companionship in this lonely
hour. It seemed that the element^ had
formed a combination with other things
to make us homesick, for it had been
raining almost incessantly in torrents
since our arrival in Jackson. By this
tim? we were feeling our first attack of
homesickness. This feeling of loneliness
remained with us until we had formed
acquiiintances among the boys and had
settled down to work.
It was not long before we began to
feel proud of our Class and to compli-
ment ourselves that we were genuine
Freshmen — not green ones, for this color
had been used by the Class that preceded
us and was therefore unknown in our
The Seniors tried to humiliate us by
calling us "ignoramuses" and other,
n.imes, the meaning of which we could
not entirely comprehend. Yet our hopes
revived when we found that there were
two classes below us, the "Preps."
We met in due time and elected Class
officers, selected our colors, ordered Class
hats and adapted a motto which we have
always stood by : "Let the co-eds do the
wcik." This meeting seemed to have
done more for promoting Class spirit
than anything else. Since that time the
spirit of the Class of '10 has been grow-
ing every day. We have a right to take
pride in our Class for a great many rea-
so'.is. Each one of the co-eds is as loyal
a supporter of the Freshman Class as
our most brawny athlete or our most
ie:\'ent orator. This is clearly shown by
ihe tact that they always come (jut and
' loot' when the team plays any ot the
<thei Class teams, in numbers we sur-
pass any other Class in College, there
being seventy-three of us who hope to
wear caps and gowns in 1910; m debate
and oratory we are ever pi-e-eminent, our
men being leading lights in both the Lit-
eral y Societies. Besides this we are well
represented in the publications ol the
In Athletics such names as Jones,
Adams. Haley, Clark and others will live
forever in the annals of the College. We
have represemtatives in every kind of
out-door sport. In "gym" work we are
prominent : one of our members has
eliarge of the gymnasium, and his pro-
ficiency is recognized by all. Our foot-
ball team competed successfully with the '
other Class teams. When the base-ball
se.'isor. opened there were among us, ball
players who organized themselves into a
teen which was defeated only m one
game For various reasons, this game
nee.: not be further mentioned. In
basket-ball our team did some very ef-
fective work. At the close of the series
the "gentle and simple Preps," the "gay
30ung Sophomores" and "grand old
Seniors" had all been laid quietly down
to rest "in the shade of the old apple
tiee' h} the "verdant Freshmen" who
\\-ere only suqiassed In' the "jolh' Jun-
J\Iay each one return to College next
session as a Sophomore to maintain the
high standard which has been set by our
Clasr during the past session. And when
the Class of '10 has made its last appear-
ance on the rostrum of Millsaps College
r.iay there be no other Class to surpass
the splendid record made by them.
DEAR OLD SKULE.
Dear old skule,
The sparrows sing above you,
Dear old skule ;
They speak of how I love you,
And Oh, what a fib they "tell!
For I hate to hear your bell
That summons us to class-room
To hear pronounced our last doom,
For Monday morning lessons
Don't cause a flow of blessin's
On our old skule, dear old skule.
Dear old skule.
Bushes glow along the walk,
Dear old skule.
Where we used to love to talk
Of the lessons we had not
And the lectures ne'er forgot.
Of the latest at the show
And the places where we 'd go
If we were not then at skule
Under teacher's strictest rule
In our old skule, dear old skule.
Dear old skule,
The trees so green around you,
Dear old skule ;
They look as if they 'd found you
Manv a long year before
In that spot where now your door
Causes often woeful thoughts
Of the zeros and the naughts
Given wear}- pupils there.
Causing them so much despair
In our old skule, dear old skule.
Dear old skule,
The pupils gone above you,
Dear old skule,
Surely once thev didn't love you,
Or else they didn't understand,
Though thev loved their native land
Thev didn't have to love their skule
With its hard and cruel rule.
Distance, 't is, enchants the view;
Some dav I may love you, too,
jNIv own old skule, dear old skule.
Dear old skule,
When this class at last is gone,
Dear old skule.
Clover blossoms in your lawn
Still will be as green and white
As I know they are to-night;
In the shadow of the trees
There '11 be nothing but the bees
To regret we 've gone away
And wish us back again some day
To our old skule, dear old skule.
Dear old skule.
When we have graduated,
Dear old skule,
From duties always hated.
On this final happy night,
When the future seems so bright,
Filled with joys and sweet delight.
And we know that we have quite
Gone beyond our former wavs.
We '11 wish again the old skule-days
In our old skule, dear old skule.

LAMAR LlTEllARY SOCIETY.
Ever since its organization, the La-
n;ar Literary Society has been one of
the n'lOst important adjuncts of Miilsaps
College. Its members are always among
the foremost men in College, and in de-
bate they are worthy of consideration.
In all its history, no year has been
so successlul as the present. It has pros-
pered not only from a literary point of
view but also from a financial, as a few
facts will demonstrate. Members of our
society are to represent the College botii
in the Mississippi Oratorical Contest and
the Crystal Springs Chautauqua, \V. F.
Alurrah being the representative to the
former and S. I. Osborn to the latter.
Then again we have not allowed our
money "to lie idly by" but have used
it in equipping and beautifying our hall.
The result is that we have one of the
most beautiful and attractive halls to be
When we returned this year it was
discovered that many of our last year's
men would not be back again, and con-
siderable anxiety was expressed as to
the outcome of this year's work ; but all
fears of an unsuccessful year's work
were soon dispelled, for it was soon dis-
covered that our ranks had been replen-
ished with a number of men thoroughly
imbued with the spirit of our motto:
"Nulla palma sine, labore." We were
equally successful in securing honorary'
members, and many men are now in the
societv hard at work, who would not
have become members had it been for
Patriotism and love of the society
rather than politics have characterized
this year's work. Jn the selection of
officers, debaters and speakers the men
have had one end in view, and that to
secure the best and most capable men
regardless of class or other affiliations.
At the annual election, which oc-
curred in the early part of the session,
the following men were chosen to rep-
resent the society in the various capac-
ities : Anniversarian, S. I. Osborn ; Or-
ator, C. H. Kirkland; Commencement
Debaters, Jeff Collins and W. F. Mur-
rah ; Mid-Session Debaters, T. L. Bailey
and O. F. Turner. W. A. Williams was
elected to represent the society in the
Inter - Collegiate Debate between the
Southern University and IVIillsaps. The
debate occurred at Greensboro, Alabama,
and Mr. Williams and his colleague from
the Galloway Society won the question.
We are now nearing the end of the
vear's work and are anxiously awaiting
Commencement, for then we believe that
our members will do our society great
To the one who peers through the
dim vista of the future the prospects
seem brighter than ever before ; so we
can but prophesy that next year's work
will be the greatest in the history of the

GALLOWAY LITERARY SOCIETY.
The history of the Galloway Literary
Society, indicating the time of its origin,
its purpose, and the honors won during
the first fourteen years of its existence
having been published in a previous edi-
tion, it only remains to tell what has been
accomplished in the session of nineteen
hundred six and seven.
The Galloway Literary Society is a
progressive organization having no pa-
tience with the old realistic idea that we
should accept things as we find them,
rather believing that man has accom-
plished nothing that cannot be improved
upon. This progressive spirit has been
manifested this year in amending the
■constitution so as to provide for a public
meeting for the first Friday evening of
•each month, and for an extemporaneous
■debate in addition to each regular pro-
gramme. The purpose of the former is
to stimulate speakers to greater efforts
■and to give the public an opportunity to
see the kind of work the society is aoing.
But the society is not content with
being on the right side of every question
simply, and is satisfied only when it has
brought others over to its own way of
thinking. For example, upon learning
that the Lamar Society, a similar organi-
zation of the College, was laboring under
a delusion that we should not have an in-
heritance tax law, it immediately sent two
of its most popular orators, j\iessrs. W.
O. Uackstrom and J. C. Rousseaux, to
that honorable body for the purpose of
convincing them of their error. The
Gallowa}' representatives soon became
aware that their task was no easy one,
lor they were met in public debate by two
of Lamar's, who, though in the wrong,
were so sure that they were right that
they sustained their convictions with ex-
cellent argTiment. However, the Gallo-
way representatives were ecjual to the oc-
casion and succeeded in converting them
to their views.
The advancement of the society dur-
ing this term over that of the previous
ones is not due to chance. It is due, in
a large measure, to the wise leadership
of its presidents and the faithful efiforts
of its speakers ; and so long as the so-
ciety is composed of men who believe in
its motto and are loyal to its constitu-
tion, it will be in no danger of decline
but its march will ever be onward and
upwartl to the attainment of the highest
aspirations of its most enthusiastic lead-
ers, confirming their belief that while
the societv has won more than its share
of honors in the past the future has still
greater honors in store for it.

THE Y0U:N^G MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION.
L'rg-anizfd shortly after the College
was founded, the Y. ]\I. C. A. has been
ever dominated by the two-fold purpose
( 1 ) of leading men to an aeceptance of
Christ, and ( 2 ) of forming such asso-
ciations among the students as to help
them guard against the temptations of
college life. It places the spiritual above
the intellectual and emphasizes the im-
portance of Christian activity in educa-
The Association strives to accomplish
its worthy ideal by holding twice-a-week
prayer-meetings conducted by the stu-
dents, or, has frequently been the case,
by some member of the Faculty. Pro-
fessors \\'almsley, Swartz, Rickets and
Wise have so favored us this session.
Attracted away by other things in the
spring, however, students need more of
a stimulus than weekly meetings ; this
stimulus is provided by the annual re-
vival services, conducted this session by-
Rev. Paul AI. ISrown, of the i^oiiisiana
Nor is this the only method of the
Association to keep up a lively interest
in Christian work : to this end delegates
each year are sent to some students' con-
vention. From such trips the delegates
return fired with new enthusiasm to im-
part to those who have tarried "by the
stuff." The usual Southwestern Confer-
ence at Ruston this year saw a clelega-
tiiin from Millsaps larger than any other
representation from the Colleges of the
Southwest. Those going from our Col-
lege were Messrs. Brown. Alullins, R. H.
Rufif, Kirkland, Guinn, W. 1'. Moore,
Currie, P. right and .Murrah. The ten
days of the Conference are assiduously
devoted to discussing Y. M. C. A. work.
The afternoons, however, are given to
athletics. Messrs. Aloore, jMuUins, Kirk-
land anfl Murrah were conspicuous for
good work on the foot-ball team, com-
posed of Alississippi men that overcame
the men from Texas. The basket-ball
pennant was won by the Millsaps rep-
The Association work is the students"
work, as will be seen by noticing" the plan
of work. The President ajipnints seven
chairmen of seven committees, composed
each of three men. The first is the Ad-
vertising Committee whose duty it is at
the opening of each session to have dis-
tributed among the students a hand-and-
memorandum book with camjius in-
formation, and to advertise special meet-
ings. The work of the Reception Commit-
tee is to see that an entertainment is had
for the new students — a time wliL-n all
arc made acquainted with each other.
The Membership Committee meet each
new man on the campus and indi\iduall\-
urge him to join the Y. M. C. A.. The
Association lias 117 members. Then
there is the Finance Committee whose
chairman is the Treasurer of the Asso-
ciation ; they collect the yearly dues
($1.50) from each member and raise
sufficient funds for the deleg-ations and
the minister who conducts the revival.
The work of providing leaders for the
meetings is delegated to the devotional
Finally, the Missionary and Bible
Study committees are important ; tlie
first sees to it that the subject of mis-
sions is enthusiastically presented to the
students, that courses of study in mis-
sions is enthusiastically presented to the
students, that courses of study in mis-
sions are offered, and that men are
trained in SA'stematic giving to missions.
At the opening of each session the Bible
Study Committee earnestly solicits each
student to take systematic work in Bible
study. The courses are all so arranged
as to allow a certain part of time to be
spent in daily study: on Sunday rrom
2 to 3 o'clock the grou-s meet to dis-
cuss the lessons of the foregoing week.
There are ninety-five men enrolled.
A new feature this session has been
the Y. M. C. A. DeT)artment in the .1/(7/-
Sii/^s Collci^iaii. With .Air. J. R. Uright
as the able editor, the principles of the
Association have been clearly enunciated
— common evils have been discussed and

THE SOPHOMORE CHARGE,
(With apologies to Tennyson.)
Half an inch, half an inch,
Half an inch onward,
All in the midst of Grads
Sophs now had blundered.
"Forward, you athletes made !
Charge for the goal!" he said;
Into the midst of Grads
Sophs now had blundered.
'Forward, you athletes made !'
Was there a man dismay 'd?
Not tho' the fellows knew
Quarter had fumbled :
Too late to make reply,
Too late to reason why,
Nothing but tO' go and try ;
Into the midst of Grads
Xeven now stumbled.
Flash'd all their arms now bare,
Flash'd as they leaped in air
Tackling the runners there.
Charging the mighty, while
All the School wonder'd ;
Plunged with a mighty stroke
Right thro' the line they Droke ;
Sophs and Seniors
Reel'd from this mighty stroke
Shatter'd and sundered.
Then they fell back, but not —
Not the same number.
Left end to right of them.
Right end to left of them,
Center in front of them
Shouted and thunder'd ;
Tackl'd by them, they fell.
Boldly they struggl'd and well.
Into the midst of Grads,
Into the midst of hell
Sophs now had blunder'd.
Left end to right of them,
Right end to left of them.
Center in front of them
Came on like thunder ;
In the crash both "Prep," known
And Bob Alullins. the full-back,
They who had fought so well
Came from the midst of deatn.
Back from the midst of hell
All that was left of them.
Now nine in number.
W'hen can their glory fade?
O the wild rush they made !
Which left two and seven.
Honor the rush they made !
Honor those athletes made.
C. C. H.
-^ --'--■ KA^~
The year just closing has Ijeen one of marked interest in Ath-
letics, and this is the more to be noted as it lollows a year of un-
usual depression. The Athletic Association, which is the center
of all athletic activit}', has been peculiarly fortunate in having as its
head Air. W. F. Murrah, who has succeeded in arousing enthusiasm
to such a degree that the membership of the Association is nearly
four times as large as last vear.
The Gymnasium has been, for the greater part of the year,
under the efficient care of Mr. Easterling. and it has not only proved
a means of development and training, but has also been a place
of pleasant resort, especially when bad weather prevented out-
The interest in the first i)art of the ye.^r centered in the class
contests for a silver loving cup ofl'ered to the winning foot-ball
team. While the cup was won by the Senior Class team, with
the Juniors a close second in the percentage column, every class
developed foot-ball material that might have creditably represented
the College. The interest manifested by J.ie whole College, and
the enthusiastic attendance at each game vere new and most en-
couraging features at ]\Iillsaps.
The class contest for the basket-ball championship was not
attended with the enthusiastic interest manifested during the foot-
ball season, but Air. Gieger, the accomplished basket-ball manager,
succeeded in developing good material, and the victory of the
Junior team was well earned.
Interest in base-ball is hard to arouse and maintain at Alillsaps,
as the majorit}' of the capable base-ball men are mfected with the
mania for seeing professional base-ball, and the opening of the
League season finds on the bleacheries those men who should be
in college practice. Teams were organized from each class, and
while it was soon evident that the contest was narrowed down to
the Freshman and Preparatory teams, interest was kept up till the
end, when the Freshmen won the j)ennant offered by Mr. Alurrah
with a percentage of looo.
The Tennis Club, as well as the Athletic Association, felt the
beneficial effects of a change of administration. The new president.
Professor U. H. Aloore, has been full of enthusiasm, both on the
courts and the platform, and has built up the most successful Ten-
nis Club ever known here. Two new courts were made, and the
interest has not flagged during the year. .\ liandicaj) tournament
was held in the early spring, and Air. J. IS. Catching won the prize
racket offered by Professor Moore. Another tournament was held
on Patriots' Day, and a team representing the College found no
difficulty in defeating the Jackson High School.
The leading Athletic feature of Patriots' Day. the new spring-
holiday at Millsaps, was a hotly contested game of base-ball be-
tween the Freshman team and an all-AIillsaps team, ^^'ith the
exception of one "swatfest" inning, the game was a very even con-
test, and the enthusiasm of the "rooters" was kept at high tide.
The all-.Millsaps team, however, was unable to recover from the
disastrous first inning, and the Freshmen were allowed to enjoy
the reception given by the Freshman co-eds vith a clear conscience
and a light heart.
The games this year have been mostly intcr-class games, but
there have been a few exceptions. Earlv in the fall the Prepara-
tory foot-ball team won an eas}- victory over the Jackson High
School, and at the Students' Conference held at Ruston, Louisiana,
in Christmas week, the Alillsaps men won tb.e basket-ball pennant.
In the early spring Alanager Catching rook his victorious Fresh-
man base-ball team over to Clinton, to play the Freshmen of Alis-
sissippi College, and it is prudent not to iu'iuire too closely into
the details of this latest \\'aterloo.
Summing up the year we can say that wh.ile the new athletic
field, so ardently desired, has not been secured, and while many of
our promising athletes still waste their energy in watching League
games, this has been a good year, and every indication points to a
still brighter future.

ox THE JJAMvS OF THE AT( HAFALAYA.
A }oung" man of iwenty-six was sit-
ting on tlie banks ul the Atchafala)"a
gazing into its waters, whose natural
beauty was lieightencd Ijy tlie rays of the
setting sun, mingling its flickermg light
with the shadows of the tall cottonwcjods
growing along the banks. It was an
evening in June, when no sound could
be heard save the hum of the bees amung
the clover, and the murmur of the wa-
ters as they glided by on their way to
the( lakes. The trees were covered with
deep foliage and tlie levees, winding
along either bank of the river, clothed
in their summer costumes of green, with
cattle grazing peacefully on them, looked
as if they were built for an ornament
rather than for a defence. Just behind
the young man lay Broken Arrows,
"The Milage of Roses." to the north
and east of which were the vast, rich cot-
ton fields stretching from the Atchafal-
aya to the Mississippi, twenty miles dis-
tant ; and to the south and west were
deep forests of cottonwood and the
"Golden Lakes" of the Atchafalaya.
Ten years ago Orley Reed, for such
was his name, entered Broken .\rrows
for his first time ; friendless, an utter
stranger, and with no capital except the
memories of a Christian home and an
unshaken faith in his mother's God. A
few weeks before his arrival at Broken
Arrows he had been called home on ac-
count of the extreme illness of his fa-
ther, who died shortly afterwards, leav-
ing him and his little sister, Eunice, of
fourteen summers, to face the world as
best they could. When Orlev had set-
tled his father's accounts he found that
thev still had about one hundred dollars
to their credit. This lie gave' to ins sis-
ter and sent her off to college ; and he
had been walking from village to village
seeking employment, when he came to
Broken Arrows, a small town in Louisi-
ana. Here he found work in a grocery
store which paid scarcely enough to keep
his sister at college and pay his board.
However, he secured a night school
which enabled him to buy his clothes
and occasionally a book to read.
The young boy soon learned that
his was not an easy task. When his sis-
ter left for college, lie had kissed her
g'ood-bye without shedding a single tear
and had told her not to cry, "For I can
make lots of money somewhere," he
said ; but when the train which carried
her away from him had passed out of
sight, a feeling of utter loneliness came
over him, and he almost repented that
he had sent her away. Xor did his ex-
perience with the world make his liurden
any the lighter, and nothing but his
dogged determination and his love for
his sister enabled him to hold his own
<luring his first few months at Broken
r.ut Orley's prospects began to
brighten after his first year in this little
village. His diligence and his honesty
in dealing with customers had so in-
creased his employer's trade that he ad-
vanced his salary more than once during
the year. Nor had he won the respect
and the esteem of the business world
alone, but in social circles his congenial
manner had made him many friends,
among whom was I^eonard Gorden, a
\oimg man from Ohio who had come to
Broken Arrows to serve as pharmacist in
his uncle's drug store. The two boys, both
from distant cities, naturally sympathized
witli each other, and fiom this sympathy
lliere sprang up a iife-long friendship.
Almost ever)- Suntlay afternoon, lor this
was the only time which they had en-
tirely to themselves, they might be seen
strolling along the banks of the Atcna-
falaya, stopping here and there to gaze
with rapture upon the beautiful scenery
which Xature has furnished so abun-
daiuiy in the Southland, and especially
in this particular spot, "where reigns
perpetual summer" ; or they loved also
to be out on the Golden Lakes of the
Atchafalaya in their canoe, one reading
aloud while the other held the oar, which
he used occasionally to keep the wind
from driving the boat into the bushes
which grew along the shore.
Thus four years passed by, unevent-
ful so far as the world could sec, yet
full of change for the boy. He was no
longer a clerk in a grocery store ; he
and Leonard had giine into the mercan-
tile business together and were dding
business on a larger scale than their
former employers, for their friends
transferred their trade from the old
firm to the new one. Orley's contact
with the world had changed the open-
hearted boy to a keen financier. Xor
had he gained all and lost nothing in
the transformation ; his dealings with
shrewd traders, some of them unprinci-
pled, had sharpened his business ability,
l)ut that acuteness of moral perception,
which enabled him to distinguish the
good from the evil, had been blunted
by the same process. The old delight
in the beauties of Nature and the sim-
pler pleasures of his earlier davs had
been smothered, and the enterpiising
spirit of commercialism was enthroning"
itself in his heart, teaching him to be-
lieve that a man's life consists in the
abundance of the things which he pos-
At this critical period there came
something into his life which was des-
tined to save him from becoming a mere
money-making machine and toi relight
the purer fires in his soul. Eunice had
finisned her college course and had come
to liroken Arrows to live with Orley,
ij.inging with her Freda Downing, one
of her school companions to spend part
of the summer i with her. This little
tiower of a girl, with her dark hair and
brciwn eyes, which sparkled with fun
or ffashed with intelligence as the occa-
sion demanded, was the "something"
which was to bring about a transforma-
tion in the young man's life.
Orley had determined to make his
sister's friend enjoy her visit as soon as
he learned that she was coming, and
alter meeting her he had no desire to
change his plans. Each afternoon he
managed to spend an hour or two with
"the girls," as he and Leonard usually
s])oke of them. One evening they would
spend fishing on the Golden Lakes, per-
haps the ne.xt riding over the beautiful
waters of the Atchafalaya, the girls
calling a halt occasionally that they might
pluck the wild flowers or gather the
mosses which grew so abundantly at the
water's edge. I^eonard was nearly al-
ways with them. He proved to be thor-
oughly capable of entertaining Eunice
and ( )rley's attentions were devoted to
Freda. ft was during these hours of
companionshi|_i that the young school
girl, wdiose every thought and wdiose
whole being was as pure as the wild
flowers which he gathered for her, was
unconsciouslv leading him away from
those things which had threatened to
destroy his better self.
The environments of these tw'O young
people had been very different. Freda's
father was a rich real estate man, and
his home in Atlanta, Georgia, was one
of lu.xurv and refinement; Orley's father
was a small apple-grower near a little
town in Illinois. Freda knew nothing
of the world in which she lived except
its flowers, its books, and its sunshine ;
Orley had seen much of the hard and
thorny side of hfe. Yet there was some-
thing in each Hfe whicli drew the otlier
Orley hatd not reaUzed how piuch
Freda had become to liim until the time
was nearing for her to return home, and
even then he dared not tell her of his
affection for her. "What right," he
thought, have I, an unpolished, unedu-
cated village merchant, to ask her to
share my lot with me ?" Poor boy !
How little he knew of a woman's heart,
especially of this one, which felt be-
neath the rough exterior of his life the
finer and nobler principles of true man-
The loneliness which C)rley felt when
Freda had gone home was made the less
tolerable by the unintentional neglect of
Eunice and Leonard, who, in theii new
delight in each other's company, had
left him to spend his leisure moments
alone. Orley, however, was not resent-
ful, for he understood; and furthermore,
he wished no greater blessing for his
sister than that she should become the
wife of Leonard Gorden. Accordingly,
when they told him a few weeks later
that they were to be married soon, he
congratulated them from the depths of
his heart and advised that the\- fix the
date of their wedding as early as possible.
These are 'the eventJs forming the
first epoch in Orley's life. We will now
follow him through the events leading
up to where we find him on the banks
of the Atchafalaya. .-Vfter Leonard's
and Eunice's marriage, which took place
two months later, Orley decided to leave
Broken Arrows and complete his educa-
tion, which had been hindered by the
death of his father ; and as he had been
at the University of Chicago when his
father died, he now thought it best to
return and take up his work where he
had left it ofif. There were two reasons
wh}' he desired to complete his educa-
tion : first he wished to fit himself for
larger usefulness, and second, he was
determined to remove the barriers which
he felt that educational ditierences had
placed between him and Freda Downing,
Accordingly, a few weeks later, business
ties severed, after an atfectionate leave
of his sister and friends, he found him-
self on board a New Orleans steamer,
the first part of his journey begun. The
sun, rising from the cotton fields in the
east, was bathing in golden light the tops
of the tall forest in the west ; and fall-
ing a half hour later upon the lakes of
the Atchafalaya, it turned them into seas
of shining gold. Orley stood on the
deck of the steamer gazing with tender
sadness on the magnificent scenery and
the familiar objects as he passed them by.
Here stood a live oak under whose wide-
spreading branches he had rested from
his weary walk on his arrival in Broken
Arrows ; there under those cottonwoods
lay a large stone where he and Freda
had sat on the evening before she left.
How he recalled every word of hers and
the unspoken words which had trembled
on his own lips, but which he dared not
utter. Living over the past, he looked
again upon the Golden Lakes, The Mi-
lage of Roses, and the green cotton
fields ! then he turned and \\alked ito
his state room, his eyes half blinded
The same genial nature which had
made him loved in Broken Arrows
brought Orley many friends in Chicago,
and it was here that he became convinced
of his life-work. The need of social re-
form in the great cities and the call for
a man who would devote his life to it
appealed to him, and through all of his
college davs the solution of this prob-
lem was the one dominating purpose of
his life. It would be interesting to fol-
low Orlev through the stages of his de-
velopment at the L^niversity, and see the
eflfect of the different influences which
bore upon his life, but we must pass
over the five years of University lite to
wliere we find Orley, now at the age of
twenty-six, on the banks of the Atcha-
falaya on this evening in June.
L)rley liad completed his education
and had returned to Broken Arrows to
look once again upon the scenes of his
earlier days before entering into the field
which he had chosen for his life-work.
Although many changes had been made
in the town since he left it five years
ago, there were a few things that had
remained the same ; his sister's face had
lost none of its freshness and she seemed
as far removed from care as the little
boy of four and ihe little girl of two
who called her mother ; and the Atchafa-
laya which had woven into his very soul
the music of its rippling waters, seemed
as eternal in its beauty as the Lrod who
created it. As the evening began to
wear away, Orley stole away from his
friends that he might listen to the soft
nuirmuring of the waters and dream of
the past. But there was an expression
of sadness on his face which changed
to one of deeper tenderness as the mem-
ories of the past came back to him. No
wonder that he looked sad, for he knew
that before another sun would rise in
the east, he and his beautiful river, with
all its sacred memories, would be niany
But it was not his love for the river
which caused the expression on his face
to deepen to one of tenderness, but its
association with the one who had taught
his eyes to see its beauty again, when for
a time it had been hid from him. It is
true he had been with her only a few
times, but how those few times had
changed his whole life ! It was she who
walking along the banks of the river,
had stopped where he now sat to call
his attention to the beauties of the scen-
ery around them, and looking through
her eyes he had learned to see things
as she saw them. It was while sitting
with her on that same stone that he had
determined to win her love and make
her his wife, but he had not dared to
speak to her until he had gotten his ed-
ucation. Thus he mused; "Only last
week Eunice received a letter from her
which stated that she and her father-
would be in Baton Rouge some time
soon, and that she would come over to
Broken Arrows to spend a day while her
father was attending to some business,
lint why did she not answer my letter?
Is it possible that she did not receive
it? I can find out by telling Eunice, but
I won't. I can take care of my own
Such were the thoughts that were
passing through Orley's mind as he sat
there alone. But presently his attention
was drawn to a large steamboat which
landed about a quarter of a mile above
him. He saw ai woman get ofl^ the boat
and start down the bank of the river in
liis direction, but if she was going- to
town why did she not take a cab instead
of following this round-about path ? The
boats generally remained an hour or
more at Broken Arrows landing, and
passengers often took advantage oi this
delay to see some of the scenery along
the banks of the river, which was noted
for its beauty. So thought Orley in the
present instance and was soon again in
his deep reverie. The woman did not
see him, for he was sitting on the oppo-
site side of two trees between which
some fishermen had hung a tarpaulin to
protect their fire from the breeze while
tliey were cooking their dinner. Nor did
he think of her again until he heard a
light step and looking around, he saw a
girl standing between him and the wa-
ter's edge, looking down upon the wild
jessamine which grew in tangles at her
feet. She was dressed in a neat gray
traveling costume, and though he could
not see her facef distinctly, there was
something about her features that caused
him to think that he had seen her be-
fore. Presentl" she turned her face a
little further m his direction and he saw
a tear glistening in her eye as she said
in a low voice, "Oh, Orley, if you had
only spoken then !"
He knew her voice and saw before
him the object of all his thoughts. For
a moment he could not speak or move,
so great was his emotion. Then recov-
ering himself he arose and stepped soft-
ly to her side and said : ,
"Freda, I can speak yet if it is not
She could not answer him, for her
surprise was even greater than his.
"Sit down here, Freda," he said,
leading her to the stone where he had
been sitting, "I have something to tell
you." He sat down by her side and
took her hand in his own.
"Five years ago we sat here together
and it was then that I first learned to
love you. Through all the years that
have passed I have longed for your com-
panionship. Tell me that you love me,
Freda, that you will never leave me
"1 love you," she said simply.
Xo sound could be heard to break
the stillness of the hour except the soft
murmur of the waters, for the hum of
the bees among the clover had ceased,
tlic sun had gone down into the lakes
in tlie west, leaving the
the evening star.
