Dr. J. A. Moore. 

AN APPRECIATION. 



» » ^ 



So many worlds, so much to do. 

So little done, such things to be. 
How know I what had need of thee. 

For thou wert kind as thou wert true." 

This tribute to his lamented friend by England's great laureate comes 
easily to mind in view of the present death of Dr. J. A. Moore, our honored 
Professor of ]^Iathematics. We cannot conceive of him otherwise than as fill- 
ing the right place and doing with his might the right thing, to whatever sphere 
God niav have called him. Like a true W'esleyan he was "never unemployed, 
never trifiingly emploved.'" So single was his aim in life, so constant his devo- 
tion to duty, and withal so unique was his personality, that he is become an 
integral part of the history of Alillsaps College. In an important sense it mav 
be said that he was the founder of our Department of ^Mathematics, for while 
not one of the original Faculty, he signed the diplomas of our first graduating 
class, and left the impress of his strong individuality upon their successors for a 
period of nearly fourteen years. 

The ordinary terms of obituary writing would not be appronriate in this 
appreciation of our subject. To say that a figure long familiar upon our cam- 
pus and in our college halls has disappeared ; that a teacher of rare equipment 
and distinguished service has been lost to the educational work of our State and 
Church: that the voice of a faithful minister of the gospel has been hushed in 
death ; that a kind neighbor, a true friend, a good citizen, a devoted husband, a 
wise and tender father has ceased to live — would all be true ; but those who knew 
Dr. Moore well would hardly think of these things as necessary to be said ; they 
fall naturally into the scheme of a life like his. 

It would be in doubtful taste, however the facts might justify it, to speak 
in terms of fulsome oraise concerning one whose dominant characteristic was 
simplicity and exactness. And yet he will, in college tradition, be always asso- 
ciated with the love and rememberable teachers, real or imaginary, that are 
met with in our reading of Ene-lish or other literature. He was not -^ Dr. 
Arnold, but Dr. Arnold himself had no greater gift of rectitude, no loftier stand- 
ard of life, personal or professional, than he ; he was not a counterpart of the 
master we read of in "The Deserted Milage." and yet Goldsmith's genial dom- 
inie inspired no truer devotion, no more loyal admiration than did Dr. Moore 
among those who from time to time came under his tuition. 



From the C(|uation of his hfc, 1im\wvct. w c must chmiiiau- ilu- foihk-s of 
the village savant. Somehow cohere in-vmiity invented no niekname tor him, 
and it is worthy of note that the most I'l tlh'ekinL; im >i ,d df tlu' e(>lIe,L;e wit ne\ei- 
attributed to him anythin.L;- that was hltle or low. In the srhi >ol-r( » mii. on the 
campus, on chuy or at leisure, he was always the same; kind, rarn ^i, di^nilied. 
simple, candid, a man who knew what iie thought and meant what he said. 

The limit assig-ued us leaves no room for detailed aecdunl i>\ his hovhood 
and student life or of his services in the ministry and in the several schools in 
which he taught. His later career is thus summarizt'(l in (,ui- College catalogue: 
"A.B., Southern University, 1880. and .\..M., 1SS7; member of the Alabama (,'011- 
ferencc, 1881-94, and of the Mississipj)i Conference since 181)4; I'rot'essor of 
^Mathematics, Southern I'niversity, T883-i8t;4: I'h.l)., Illinois \\\sK-\an I'liiver- 
sity. 1888." To this may be added. Professor of Mathematics in .Millsaps C(»l- 
leg-e, 1894-1908. 

The filling of this outline ma^- be taken for granted. It w as at\i)ical Amer- 
ican life, one fully possible in no other land than ours. .\ bra\e. ambitious, 
single-minded country boy, inspired by high ideals steadfastly adheied to, grew 
normally into the successful college student, the faithful ])astor. the accom- 
lilished teacher, the honest, honored, trustwortlu' man. 

Special mention should be made of Dr. ^Moore as a Christian. In this char- 
acter, though skeptical to the last degree in matters of science, his faith was like 
that of a little child. T(~) him God's Word wa.s the word of God, authoritati\-e and 
final; the cardinal doctrines of Christianitv were sacred truths, not mere <|ue-- 
tions for debate. 

A peculiar interest attaches to the judgment passed b\- a student budy ujion 
a teacher whom they have known for many vears. .\n occasional lap.se may 
provoke passing criticism; peculiaritv of dress, or s])eech. or manner may chal- 
lenge college caricature and both may express themsehes in extra\aganl ways, 
but in the long run, he who stands the test of college scruiin\ and receives the 
stamp of college approval, may be trusted anywhere. 

Before this court Dr. ^^foore stands unim])eaclied, and the ctiUcge \-erdict is: 
"]\rark the perfect man and behold the ui)right, for the end of that man is i)eace." 
In the keeping of this court his good name will be secure, and none the less if 
judgment should be rendered in terms he used so often, and he should be re- 
membered among us as one whose character was a "constant ' in all manlv vir- 
tues, and his life an "increasing variable" whose "limit" was "the measure of the 
stature of the fullness of Christ." 

While Millsaps College .stands, the memory of Dr. .Moore will be honored 
ar.d revered. In the hearts of his old j)ui)ils lie will have his own place always, 
and in College tradition he will stand out a ligure distinct in every lineament, 
himself "to the tinger-tips," "nor Launcelot nor another."

"Kirk,"" in ihc rule of "second l)ass," in 
that musical ( ? ) comedy entitled "The (Juar- 
tette." is nothini^" more nor less ( jirincipally 
more) than an extraordinary disinrher of ihe

of that classic phrase of Shakespeare's. "Mak-

twentieth- 



century politician — with all that ///(// implies. 
Is equally attractive in track-suit and even-

grounds of good looks and unlimited nerve — 
part of which is right. Is thoroughly loyal 
to and appreciative of "Kirk." Is the best

deepest thinkers. Freshman contest 1904 ;

Rubaiyat of the Seniors. 

» » # 

(With Apdloj^ies lo ( )i)iar l\lia}}am.) 

T. 
Wake! for the Class that is to put to lliiiht 
Willi its Wisdom and Knowlcdj^'c all traces of the Ximlit 

Of Ignorance — is filing out the I )oor of Millsa])s and strikes 
luerN- Observer as an Awesome Sight. 

IT. 

And as the h'.ighteen nass, those who stood before 
Salaamed and said, "We are Sore — Good and Sore 

IJecause WE know so little, while YOL' have robbed 
The Treasure-house of Knowledge of its Store."' 

IIT. 

Quoth Beasley: "I too, when vo/n/.i;, most pleadingly went 
To the (le])arting Seniors — eagerly bent 

L'pon learning the Secret of their Pass; but evermore 
Came away more Ignorant than when in T went.'' 

WHiereat a Senior, the Wisest of the Lot, 
I think it was Rousseaux — waxing hot — 
Said: "Sir, do you mean to insinuate 
That I — " and fell to Cussing on the Spot. 

V. 

And then a Prep who knew the Woes 
Of Underclassmen, stepped upon his Toes 

And said: "You listen to IJeasley. and remember 
He knows whereof he speaks — he kitoics — he kiioics/' 

VI. 
Fear not lest the Facultv, dismissing you with your 
Diploma, shall know the Like no more ; 

Millsaps from her Well of Knowledge has poured 
Other Classes like this, and. I fear, will pour. 

VTL 

Strange, is it not. that of the Alany who 

Have gotten their "Dips" and passed on through. 

Not one will tell you how the Trick was done, and — 
Well, I suppose we'll deny it tool 

30 



VIII. 

That you may not be forced to spend 
Your valuable Time in search and then 

Perhaps not find their Way of doing it, I will 
Divulge the Secret — Close attention, Friend! 

IX. 

Come, get a "Pony," and under the Spur of Must 
Your Latent Quibblings of Conscience thrust; 

Remember — you 're following the Seniors' Lead, 
And Seniors, sans a Pony, always Bust. 

X. 

Indeed, "Square Exams" they often swore, 
But was this After or Before 

The Questions were up on the Board 
Whose Total read, "19 plus 4"? 

XL 

And that perverted Ruff, who seems to Lie 
With so much Ease, so naturally; 

Lift not your Hands to Him for Aid ; 
But — like Him — Practice, and By and By 

XIL 

You '11 become as proficient as even He 
Or Blount — or Zep, and — possibly — 

(Though this entails most arduous Work) 
You can hope to compete with "W. P." 

XIII. 

Each Y'ear a Bevy of Co-Eds brings, you say ; 
Yes, but this June takes One away; 

And how can the Gain of a Thousand Others 
Recompense us for that Loss, I pray? 



XIV. 
To the Beloved Faculty, who looked for us again and again 
Through the Streets of Jackson — but always in vain; 

We lament the Fact that their Eyesight is bad 
And their Sprinting Ability is on the wane. 

XV. 

And when, like us, O Juniors, you shall pass 
A Prof, upon the Streets, don't let the Grass 

Grow under your Feet — and keep him guessing 
What Student of his is in Dan Patch's Class. 

31 



XVI. 

We are no more than a Moving Row 
Of College Sports that come and go 

At the Beck and Call of the Co-Eds — or, in fact— 
Any of the Fair Sex we may chance to know. 

XVII. 

Just Helpless Pieces of the Game on this 
Checker-board of alternate Joy and Bliss; 

They Encourage us — then Cut us, and ultimately 
Promise to act "in Loco Sororis." 

XVIIL 

I wrote my Father for a Cheque — to be 
Sent immediately — to pay (ostensibly) 

My Board, Washing, for Books, and added 
A Ten Spot for any Emergency. 

XIX. 

"Yours of Last Week to hand; would state 
In reply," he wrote, "that to overrate 

Your actual Expenses while at School 
Is a Mistake we '11 settle Tete-a-Tete.'" 

XX. 

"For I observe from the Catalogue, page 33, 
Which I herewith enclose, by which you see 

'The Necessary Expenses of a Boy at College' 
And your frequent Drafts don't quite agree." 

XXI. 

My Pater wrote a Cheque, and having writ — 
Moved on, nor all my Cleverness nor Wit 

Could prove the Catalogue was wrong. 
And make him add the Ten to it. 

XXII. 

Ah, Creditor ! could You and I with liim conspire. 
We 'd consign that small Cheque to the Fire — 
Or tear it into microscopic Bits — and then 
Rewrite it nearer to our Heart's Desire. 

XXIII. 

But it is vain down on the stubborn Floor 
Of your Room to lie and bewail your 

Measly Luck, for that is like a Freshman's Trick, 
And wins you not a Penny more. 

32

XXIV. 

A Book, for a Blind, on the Camj^us Seat, 
A Summer Day, a Co-Ed sweet 

lieside me talking 'bout the Weather — 
For Conversation doesn't matter when we meet. 

XXV. 

For I passed a Pair like this one Day — 
Purely by Accident, by the Way — 

And, as I neared, I heard Her c^o — 
Just What I really hate to say. 

XXVI. 

But it lacked all the Principal Parts of a Fuss, 
Though llice and Mc seemed in some sort of a Muss — 

But the Thee and Me were finally merged 
In that wonderfully comprehensive little Word, "Us." 

XXVII. 

So when that Angel of the Sweetest Drink 
At last shall find you by Love's Brink. 

Don't let your Heart get in your Alouth, 
And don't talk Sense whatever you may think. 

XXVIII. 

After a momentary Silence spake 
O. P. Adams, of the ungainly Make: 
"They laugh at Me for being shy 
Around the Girls; forget it — for it 's all a Fake." 

XXIX. 

We would like to know the Future that Fate 
Has in store for the Class of Naughty Eight; 

But, if Merit and Brains have their usual Weight, 
They '11 write their Names on the Scroll of "The Great." 

XXX. 

And then, under Cover of departing Day, 

Slipped To-morrow's Governors and Senators away 

To be folded by Morpheus in loving Embrace; 
There 's a Sob — then I hear : "Gee ! I wish I could stay." 

R. R. N.

History of the Senior Class 



» » » 



'"Once upon a time there was a man 
who had seven sons, who always agreed 
among themselves and acted together 
as one man. He had often told them 
how foolish they were to be so tamely 
alike, but they kept on and paid no heed 
to his words. 

'"One day the father called his sons 
before him and divided among them 
seven sticks, all different in form, in 
bark, and in wood. 'Beiiold,' he said, 
*how no stick is like another of the 
seven.' And each son caught the eye 
of the next, and they answered, 'We 
see,' 

"Then the father took the seven 
sticks and tied them tightly together 
and gave the bundle to each of the 
sons in turn, saying, 'Behold now how 
much alike the sticks appear, and how 
some of them can scarcely be seen.' 
And, without consulting his neighbor, 
each son replied, 'I see.' 

" 'My sons,' said the good man, 'if 
you stand together like these sticks, you 
have no room to show strength, or 
sense, or greatness ; but if you act apart, 
each will be independent of others and 
will appear greater before the world." 
So reads the revised version of the 
classic story, and the Seniors of 190S 
have had the wisdom to adopt the policy 
therein set forth. For three years we 
wasted our talents in the foolish way 
common to college classes ; for a his- 
tory of this vain period of our exist- 
ence the reader is referred to Volumes 
I, 2, and 3 of the Bobashela. But 
in our fourth year we boldly adopted 
the maxim — some say we coined it — "in 
individualism is greatness," and we 
have tried to follow it consistently. 
Would we play foot-ball under common 
rules which compelled us to play like 
everybody else? No. Would we grad- 
uate in caps and gowns just because a 
silly crowd of people last year wanted 
not only to think and act, but even to 
look alike? Certainly not. Could we 



be content to waste our own individual- 
ity and also our parents' substance by 
burning midnight electricity only to 
learn the same things from our books 
that thousands had learned before us? 
It was hard to answer this question, 
but we did it, and we hope to forget 
what it cost us. We feel sure that we 
were right in learning our lessons in 
our own several ways, and we are cer- 
tain that we shall continue to feel sure 
that we were right; but we are not 
inhuman, and the resulting misunder- 
standing with Professors and with home 
folk has tried us sorely. In future 
years, when individualism has taken a 
stronger root in our civilization, teach- 
ers will give to each pupil a special ex- 
amination suited to his special interest 
in each special subject, and the reports 
sent home will not be so — disappoint- 
ing. Meanwhile we will not be dis- 
couraged by taunts of "laziness" and 
"lack of college and class spirit." Like 
other great souls who have been ahead 
of their age, we have been misunder- 
stood, but tune will reveal our greatness. 
In such a Class as ours one would 
naturally expect to find great variety, 
and such is really the case. Alphabet- 
ically, we range from first to last. In 
altitude, our limits are Addington and 
Kirkland ; in diameter, Zung and Ridg- 
way. In general appearance, we repre- 
sent all degrees of handsomeness and 
plainness. In variety of accomplish- 
ments, we are unsurpassed ; for we have 
acquired the cream of literature, art, 
and music — particularly music. As for 
professions, not content with producing 
only lawyers and doctors, we include 
in our number everything from a 
preacher to a gambler, from a cook to 
a book-agent ; we have an athlete and 
a translator, a man of letters and a 
man of leisure, a politician, an insur- 
ance man and a chemist ; we have even 
a co-ed and a Chinee ! \'erily. the 
world shall hear from us later. 



Senior Prophecy. 



^ 9 ^ 



This is a burden tremendous, the judg- 
ing of men in the future, 

Learned with rules and with theories, 
wholly unfitted for practice. 

Few are the laurels rewarded, or many 
the trials encountered, 

Joy of the sharing reposes, extended 
from Zung unto Adams. 

Unrolling the scroll of the mighty, 
prophets must so as the poets 

Climb Fame's ladder far higher, by 
clothing in vagueness foretellings. 

Hence one reading unaided predictions 
entitled the '"Seniors" 

Must like lawyers in causes duly cross- 
question the witness. 

x\ddington's graceful physique life's 
battles forever will conquer, 

All else failing completely, resources 
entirely exhausted. 

Brains like breezes refreshing contend- 
ing disputes to be mastered. 

Prove to be lacking immensely in pow- 
er sufficient to prosper. 

Fighting 'gainst forces unnumbered, he 
goes through life with the famous. 

Learning to use for capacity monev ac- 
quired in abundance. 

Names, like words superfluous, never can 
change the receiver, 

This proves true unmistakablv, speak- 
ing of Adams the "Senior." 

Mind well-trained and befitting to con- 
quer adversity angry, 

Strength not unfailing nor meager, but 
useless for work at the counter. 

Thinking of hearts to be wooed, he 
plays life's game as a bachelor. 

Luckily seeing unused in the scope of 
his powers tremendous. 

Knowledge profound unasserted, he 
finally vies with the famous. 



Heads though red as the garnet, con- 
taining the brains of a giant, 

Shine through ages untarnished, a glim- 
mering hard to disfigure. 

Blount, like bankers bewildered, because 
of a run on deposits, 

Turns upon friends parasitic with stern- 
ness sufficient to frighten. 

Day after day in his closet bethinking 
himself of finances, 

Pining for millions unearned, he gets 
no receipts for his troubles. 

Gems in the rough yet unnoticed as 

time rolls ceaselessly onward. 
Seldom reflect much brightness when 

waiting too long the refiner. 
This is the fortune unhappy of Collins, 

the old and the rustic. 
Who, though young in the body, in 

mind bears proofs of the aged. 
Guided by feelings mislead i n g, he 

weaves life's fibers belated. 
Finding a lovely companion, he chooses 

the young and the tender. 

Ponderous thoughts in abundance, be- 
longing to more than a mortal. 

Only of Cook are possessions, if judg- 
ing from omens confirming. 

Struck with his own personalitv. choos- 
ing himself as the subject, 

Strutting with pride and presumptuous, 
acts he the role of the haughty. 

Year after year he conducted with glory 
and pomp in his powers. 

Interests small but important, until he 
reposed with the fathers. 

Next comes Gieger, the farmer, who 
speaks in the choicest of language. 

Facts which the sages of old could not 
have afiForded to question. 

Men like children constructed, the 
brightest can never accomplish 



35 



Feats to the j^^reatcst belonp^inj^, when 
differing; only from children. 

What can he do unprepared, this shark 
of the woods in his s]:)len(lor? 

Well! it is said in the Scri])tures, "He's 
weighed in balance and wanting." 

Falling from planets celestial, recount- 
ing the deeds of the mighty. 

Lighting on objects reserved, we suig 
of the mute and the Hand some. 

Innocence covers his visage, declaring a 
soul full of goodness. 

Mischief in lurking invisible lies in his 
eyes like a raven. 

Dreaming of chickens uncaptured, he 
squeezes the bird on the dollar ; 

Fighting the foe indecision, he finally 
comes into judgment. 

Taffy forever receiving, the food for 

one Kirkland, the F'isher, 
Brings to the seeker expectant solicited 

praise of endeavor. 
Lengthy and brainy, loquacious, endued 

w^ith the "cheek" of a monarch, 
Comely and brawny, conceited, he ever 

converses of Kirkland. 
Fully aware of his talents, he enters the 

field as a lawyer, 
Climbing at last to renown, he is aided 

in singing his praises. 

Lonely and lovely, confiding, unmindful 
of self in her greatness, 

Brilliant yet modest extremely, Miss 
Huddleston plans for the future. 

Gentle and soothing her presence, for- 
bearing and charming her nature. 

Winsome and hajipy, her beauty com- 
pletely controls her companions. 

Lives no more sympathetic have ever 
humanity favored. 

Choosing to give unrewarded gifts to 
the wretched much needed, 

Rather than suffer ungiven ; she wins 
the devotion of Seniors. 

Doubting the wisdom of sages, contend- 
ing for principles hackneyed, 



Living the life of a hermit, Magee finds 
solace in oddness. 

What is expected of ancients who live 
in the age of improvement? 

How can a person cons])icuous come 
from a man so distrusting? 

Doctors of old, superstitious, pronounc- 
ing the words of a wizard. 

Find in Magee a successor in saving the 
lives of his {patients. 

Fountains of fun well up purling in the 
folds of these cortical regions, 

Alusic and laughter resounding an- 
nounce the arrival of Mo-ore. 

Friends in abundance unwa v e r i n g, 
haunting his palace majestic. 

Time after time to his bounty appeal 
for his aid in misfortune. 

Great was his life and remembered, un- 
selfish beyond a suspicion. 

"Honor" and "fame" are synonyms 
properly used in applauding. 

Lives so potent yet simple that more 
could not be expected. 

Born in a palace of wisdom adoring 

the person of "Billy," 
Lost to himself and his prestige, yet 

Murrah is worthy of honor. 
Seized with a passion for knowledge, 

he earnestly strives to recover 
Moments misspent, reposing on sofas, 

inviting to sluggards. 
Gay as a jay in the springtime, demure 

and sedate when essential, 
Lastly appraising his caliber, great he 

became by forgetting. 

Bearing on shoulders Atlantean knowl- 
edge of science terrestrial. 

Hampered by flesh in profusion, though 
victor of flesh and its evils, 

Ridgeway adds to his learnino- experi- 
ence valued in practice, 

Dealing with problems familiar, because 
he has learned in debating 

How to delay the proceedings, he easily 
shuns the collector 

Till in his pocket he carries voluminous 
bills to his credit.

Preachers in battles contested, with 

wounds are seldom afflicted. 
Rousseaux warmly insisting, receives 

from the arrow of Cupid, 
Differing- widely from warriors, a 

wound in his left "pulmonary." 
Slightly recovering vigor, dismissing 

his troubles of heartache. 
Sowing the seeds pessimistic, he passes 

away with the youthful. 
Prophets the mark are quite missing, 

attempting to write "epitaphy." 
Apt yet indeed is the saying, "Forever 

he talked with the angels." 

Ruff as a ruffian moulded, but keen as 
a briar is pointed, 

Rushes on wildly, not thinking that time 
will reveal to his sorrow. 

Something constructed by Satan on him 
was forever a-gnawing. 

Out in the country remote, to the neas- 
ants and farmers relating 

Tales so stale, so hackneyed, that fun 
from their presence has faded, 

"Tommy" forever resides, though hoard- 
ing the coveted millions. 

Solemn and sour in apuearance, for 

Sumrall has trials with his liver. 
His is a mood quite fitful and his the 

religion of skeptics. 
Such will befall all creatures who fight 

with the foe indigestion. 
Planning forever and missing, he effects 

not half his intentions. 
Strong is his will energetic, resulting 

from this was his greatness. 



"Zep" is the reas'ner proficient, the ar- 
guing "shark" of the Campus, 

Hailing with gladness vacation from 
toils to the fiesh which are tiresome. 

He who receives for his labor the price 
for a prince to be proud of. 

He who enjoys in his leisure the mo- 
ments however recurrinir. 

Dift'ers from Zepernick onlv nerchance 
in proclaiming his virtues. 

Days that are lucky are numbered, and 
"Zep" must beware of the "Jonahs." 

Zung is the Chinaman wandering far 
from the haunts of his childhood. 

Time will declare to the wanderer sad 
and bereft of his habits. 

Rough is the way of the "Melican," 
famed for his riches unbounded. 

Tasting the pleasures of travel, he starts 
on a tour never ending. 

Taking advantage of knowledge ac- 
quired by experience varied. 

He in the realm of the useful expounds 
to the heathen the gospel. 

Thus is my prophecy ended, of sages 

untried in the future. 
Glory is mine in abundance if onlv the 

truth is predicted ; 
Guilty am I and atrocious if that which 

is false is asserted. 
Pardon me, Seniors, for "knocking," if 

"knocks" should be proved o ut of 

order. 
I by the Chief of the Witches in all of 

these sayings was guided. 

Jeff Collins.

History of the Class of 1909. 



9 » » 



The history of the body of which 
you are now about to gain knowledge is 
one of vast importance, since it relates 
the acts of the most illustrious group 
of characters ever found within the 
walls of Millsaps. Yes ; it deals with 
those persons who are destined to play 
a great part in the progress of the world 
as it speeds on its mighty course. In- 
deed, their names, if we are to judge 
the future by the past, will be found 
some day recorded as great men and 
women upon the pages of history. But 
we must let the future speak for itself, 
and at present relate that which has 
already been achieved. 

On November i, 1904, a number of 
aspiring youths were seen scattered over 
the Campus looking anxiously at all the 
buildings and surroundings, and toward 
night they began to show signs of weari- 
ness or discontent, and later some were 
even heard to remark that they wished 
the "y^'^ow-fever scare" had continued 
forever. 

They were fifty-four in number — five 
co-eds and forty-nine boys. They came 
from all over the world, from both city 
and country, and from all walks of life. 
A number of them, like Abraham Lin- 
coln, had lived in log cabins, and, having 
learned to use the mall, were accus- 
tomed to rude circumstances ; others 
came from more cultured localities, 
while one came from far-away Soo- 
chow ; one from Russia sought a place 
in their ranks, another came from "Mt. 
Nebo's" lonely place, and still another 



hailed from "Hominy Ridge"; "Liz- 
zard Lope," Jackson, "Oak Grove," Ox- 
ford, and many other familiar iijaces sent 
their representatives ; coming thus from 
all localities and having followed such a 
variety of occupations — from twisting 
Soochow rice straw into Chinese hats 
to assisting housekeepers in modest Mis- 
sissippi homes — they presented a some- 
what varied band. 

But this condition did not last long; 
before the session closed they had so 
united and blended their lives as to pre- 
sent quite a respectable appearance, 
with the motto "Morgenstunde hat Gold 
in Munde" ever ringing in their ears, 
they did many things of merit. It was 
natural, this being their first year, for 
them not to make any great demonstra- 
tion — except in numbers. June came, 
and they all returned to their homes to 
seek the familiar scenes of earlier life. 

The earth had almost completed a 
revolution around the sun since this 
band first had met, and on that beauti- 
ful September day as the sun burst forth 
from behind the eastern clouds he 
looked down and smiled with joy on 
the Class of "Naughty Nine." It was 
indeed a happy time, but lo ! how their 
happiness was marred when they learn- 
ed that twenty-four of their former 
number had not returned ! With only 
thirty in number, they started on an- 
other cycle of their existence. 

They furnished men for every de- 
partment of College life. In Athletics 
they excelled; the gridiron battles never 



41 



conquered them, and the other games, 
base-ball, basket-ball, and tennis, were 
never played without them. In class- 
room they made themselves famous for 
good works. Though many test-tubes 
had to be shattered, much crayon crum- 
bled, and many battles fought in Greek 
and Latin, yet they came out victorious 
at the end and were away on another 
vacation. 

The summer soon passed, and at the 
proper time "Naughty Nine" took their 
places ready and eager for work. With 
greater regret than that of one year 
ago, they learned that sixteen more of 
their class-mates had separated them- 
selves from College companions. Like 
Evangeline, the Junior Class sought in 
vain for the absent "Gabriel." 

Thus with broken ranks, but merry 
hearts, they entered upon the j oiliest 
part of their College career. Onlv twelve 
boys and two co-eds were members of 
that gay company. Having adopted as 
their Class song, "There 's a Hole in the 
Bottom of the Sea," they chose for a 
motto, "Sing while the sun shines," and 
invariably they disturbed the studious 
crowd in the chapel. They could not 



present a foot-ball team when the sea- 
son came, because two of their number 
were too "small of stature," but they 
were ever ready to "root" and manifest 
their enthusiasm in every way possible. 
They produced base - ball players and 
basket-ball men for the College Team. 
The literary societies found able sup- 
porters in the Class of 1909, such as 
presidents, vice-presidents, mid-session 
and Commencement debaters, officers 
and orators of all kinds. The Y. M. C. 
A., as was the case a year ago, found 
most of its cabinet and officers among 
them. 

In fact, this band of men and women 
have played a conspicuous part in Col- 
lege life, and the probability is that still 
greater deeds will be performed by them 
in the future. They have left the old 
Campus again after having closed the 
third cycle of their existence and are 
now drinking in the pleasures of another 
vacation. Reader, watch the future 
pages of history and learn what this il- 
lustrious company shall accomplish, for 
what they may do I dare not undertake 
to foretell.

A College Dream. 

A Poem (?). 



^ ^ ^ 



When the melodies of Millsaps' curfew 

Burst forth in anthems grand, 
It aroused a college spirit 

And beckoned a loyal band. 

We came in rapidly flowing streams, 

In a densely crowded throng, 
And entered "the green land of dreams, 

That holy land of song." 

Our first dreams were visions of triumph. 

When above our competitors we stood, 
And watched the manoeuvres of Professor, 

And heard him reiterate "Good." 

Yes, they were visions that we should recall, 

If true and sincere we would last, 

But ere they rang through "Founder's Hall," 

They perished in the withering blast. 

But when the final "Exams" came, 

WE sounded our minds to the bottom. 
And faced the frightening principal parts, 

Of fero-ferre-tuli-latum. 

At first we stood in bitter tears, 

And wondered from whence came latum; 

And then we dreamed of future years — 

But busto! But busto! And zeros we got 'em.

History of '10. 



» » » 



To all who are acquainted with ]\Iill- 
saps College, a history of the Sopho- 
more Class is quite unnecessary ; but 
for the benefit of those unfortunates 
who know not our name and our fame 
I will endeavor to write a brief sketch 
of our career. 

Last year we were Freshmen, poor 
little ignorant Freshmen, but that was 
no fault of ours, and since it is nast we 
wish to forget it. Being Sophomores 
now, we glory in our wisdom, and real- 
izing the dignity of our position we feel 
it our duty to be an example of true 
greatness for the present Freshmen to 
follow. It is indeed a great thing to be 
a Sophomore, but it is greater still to 
belong to the Class of Nineteen Ten. In 
numbers we exceed all the classes who 
have run the same race before us, 
and in quality — well, I must not boast, 
for we were never conceited. 

Ask the professors about our Class 
records but do not insist upon seeing the 
grades. They would dazzle your eyes. 
In ^Mathematics and Latin there are 
none like us. In Chemistry we have 
had only one explosion. In our study 
of English we have developed some lit- 
erary genius, for we find the pages of 
each new Collegian illuminated by inter- 
esting Sophomore stories. 

But knowledge and learning are not 
the only fields which have been invaded 
by our dauntless young heroes. No one 
can deny our prowess in foot-ball, for 
even the Freshmen, so successful in all 
athletic pursuits, failed to win the cham- 



pionship cup from our team. All of 
the Sophs were loyal in their sunnort 
at the games, and one of our co-eds 
was voted the best foot-ball "rooter" in 
School. In base-ball also we fought a 
good fight. In tennis, basket-ball and 
"gym" work the Sophomores were en- 
thusiastic and occupied no mean posi- 
tions in general College Athletics. The 
interest in out-of-door sports extended 
also to the co-ed members of our Class, 
and they, under Professor Walmslev's 
kind leadership and instruction, organ- 
ized a basket-ball team that vanquished 
all of the other girls on the Campus. 

We claim the honor of beinp- the 
first Class at Alillsaps to distinguish 
ourselves from the "common lot" by 
wearing Class pins. These dainty 
badges are made in our colors, black 
and gold. They bear the figure " 'lo," 
representing the proud year when we 
shall sit in Section i and haughtily re- 
ceive the homage of the lower classmen 
as they bow to the "Seniors." 

We have indeed shed many tears of 
regret over the loss of our classmates 
who have already gone into the world, 
yet I congratulate my Class on both the 
quantity and quality of those remaining, 
and hope that we may always keep a 
survival of the fittest. May all of our 
number return next September as jolly 
as ever Juniors can be, and when we 
shall have left these halls forever, may 
the Class of Nineteen Ten reflect honor 
and glory upon our beloved Alma 
Mater.

The Luck of a Four=Leaf. 



» » » 



A hot June sun had just set, leav- 
ing the lazy Campus trees withered and 
drooping, and even the grass, intoxi- 
cated with the strong sunHght, lav in 
dizzy array on the baked ground. The 
tops of the big red buildings were wav- 
ing the sun a glad farewell and the ivy 
vines covering their sides were closing 
for a night's cool rest. A mocking-bird 
— just one — began to sing and the shiny 
little lizzards came from their lurking- 
places to enjoy a silly dance. Except 
for a small, bare-footed boy, the jan- 
itor's son, who was sitting on the steps 
in front of the little home, the Campus 
was deserted. He was lost in thought, 
a frown on his freckled face, his hands 
deep into his pockets and his toes busy 
drawing pictures on the ground at his 
feet. Tim, for that was his name, had 
just come from selling the bread and 
cakes which his mother baked each day 
and sent with him into the city to sell. 

But it was not about the bread and 
cakes nor about horrid old school and 
cranky teachers that he was studying. 
Tim was thinking about his sweetheart, 
and if you were in the third grade and 
could have a sweetheart like Tim's, you 
too would be thinking witli your hands 
in your pockets and be drawing pictures 



in the sand. She was a sure-enough 
sweetheart with big dancing eyes that 
sparkled and laughed all the time, and 
she had a stack of curly brown hair on 
the top of her head, and she wore big 
hats covered with pink roses. Ever since 
the time he had been sick with fever 
and she had brought him lemonade and 
books full of pictures and armfuls of 
red roses, Tim had called her Miss Rose. 
And Miss Rose was as "true blue" as 
any boy's sweetheart could be. Every 
evening she bought some of his cakes, 
and sometimes she even took him up- 
town on the street car and the}^ ate ice- 
cream in a store where everything was 
looking-glass. Then, too, she would 
buy candy to take home to mother, and 
Miss Rose always came in to see her, 
and didn't mind the least bit going right 
back to the tiny hot kitchen where they 
always found mother busy with her 
baking. 

Tim was not Miss Rose's only beau, 
and he hated all his rivals except one. 
That was the one who carried her books 
home every evening and walked all the 
way up the long row of elms to the 
steps of the Girls' Hall, then tipped his 
hat and was gone. Tim had tried, for 
hours, before the mirror, to ti'^ his hat 



50 



like that, but he never did get it just 
right. Somehow this rival reminded 
Tim of a hero whom he had seen once 
in a play that Miss Rose had taken 
mother and him to see. So Tim always 
called him "Ben-Hur." Of course Miss 
Rose called him Mr. Lewis, but Tim 
knew she liked the other name, for once 
he had heard Miss Rose call him "Ben- 
Hur/' and then "Ben-Hur" called her 
''Miss Rose," and when they caught him 
listening they didn't laugh one bit. 

What troubled Tim was that Miss 
Rose had caught him telling a great big 
story. He knew Miss Rose would catch 
him, but he had done it all for her, and 
Tim was sure she ought to forsfive him 
— but she hadn't. She hadn't talked to 
him nor been to see them since it ail 
happened, and of course he wouldn't 
offer to sell her any cakes now. It had 
all come about like this : Miss Rose 
had been walking home, not with "Ben- 
Hur," but with a horrid black-eyed fel- 
low, and her fraternity pin was gone 
and "Ben-Hur" was wearino- a face 
nearly a mile long. Tim had caught 
him singing: 

"No one to love, none to caress. 
Wandering alone through this world's 
wilderness," 

so he decided to fix matters up. First, 
he got out and looked for a four-leaf 
clover, and as soon as he found one he 
just flew to Gray Hall and asked for 
Miss Rose. She came hurrying to the 



door, wondering what was the matter, 
and without a quiver, Tim said: 

"Mi.ss Rose, 'Ben-Hur' said to give 
you this and would you please ride to 
Karl Park with him this afternoon. If 
you '11 go, you is to keep this four-leaf 
clover." 

Mi.ss Rose bit her lips and kent the 
clover. Tim fairly ran to find ''Ben- 
Hur." He finally located him away out 
on the golf links, and Tim had to follow 
him a long time before he could make 
himself say it. Oh, it was an awful 
thing to do, but at last he just up and 
told "Ben-Hur" that Miss Rose wanted 
to see him, and would he please come 
to see her that afternoon — Tim forgot 
the ride. He didn't want the quarter, 
but "Ben-Hur" insisted, so he had come 
home conscience-stricken, not because of 
the stories, but the quarter. Tim was 
sure it weighed a ton. Then in the af- 
ternoon there had been a terrible "mix- 
up" wlien Miss Rose entered the narlor 
dressed in a riding habit and hat. ft 
took some time to straighten thinsfs out. 
but Tim knew everything was all right 
again, for "Ben-Hur" had patted him 
on the head and given him another 
quarter — but Miss Rose — Tim just 
"reckoned" she didn't like story-tellers. 
It had been two days since all this 
happened, and what can a little boy 
do when his sweetheart won't come to 
see him? At last an idea struck him — 
he would play sick — Tim thought per- 



51 



haps he would die just to make Miss 
Rose feel bad. The next morning 
found Tim in bed with mother bathing 
his head and fanning him. It was all 
he could do to stand it, and when he 
thought of staying there all day, he 
nearly changed his mind about being 
sick. All day long he thought of Miss 
Rose, and his conscience grew heavier 
with the dragging minutes. 

Then, just after he had taken some 
nasty medicine, Tim saw her come into 
the gate carrying a huge basket of 



fruit. When she and mother tintoed 
into the room, Tim was sobbing. 

"I 'm not sick, I 'm not, and I '11 
never tell another story as long as I 
live — honest. Miss Rose. Mayn't I have 
some fruit? Please don't scold. 

Then Miss Rose kissed him and said, 
"Now be a good boy and you shall have 
some fruit and to-morrow we'll ride 
to Karl Park with—" 

But she never finished, for Tim 
opened wide his eyes and said, "That 's 
the purtiest ring I ever have saw."

Freshman Class History. 



» » » 



The twenty-fifth day of September, 
nineteen hundred and seven, marked a 
memorable period in the history of 
Millsaps College, for on that day the 
Class of 'ii made its appearance, and 
inasmuch as all great organizations are 
accustomed to transmit a record of their 
achievements, it falls upon me to submit 
to posterity a history of the Freshman 
Class of 191 1. The duty of the histo- 
rian requires that we lay aside the man- 
tle of dignity that is now beginning to 

envelop us and describe ourselves as 
Freshmen. 

Where the class originated is a mys- 
tery. Our members hail from all cor- 
ners of the Republic. Some were 
evolved from model boys and girls ; 
many were "skule-teachers," while a 
few were members of the Freshman 
Class of 19 10. These elements have 
formed a class where learning is plen- 
tiful and genius actually runs riot. 

In the early days of the Class an 
order went forth for a meeting of all 
Freshmen in Prof. Moore's room for 
the purpose of organization. On the 
appointed day the Class assembled, and 
after discussing matters for a while, we 
decided that we were almost as good 
as the proud, haughty Sophomores, even 
if they did try to intimidate us by con- 



stantly reminding us that we were 
Freshmen, and large green ones at that. 
We possessed latent powers of organi- 
zation which soon manifested them- 
selves in the elevation to the presidential 
chair of our most genial and jolly mem- 
ber, Mr. J. A. Anders. However, Mr. 
Anders left school before the term was 
out, and the Class met and elected in 
his stead, Mr. R. C. Berry. The Class 
exercised excellent judgment in the se- 
lection of two of our most popular co- 
eds. Miss Wharton for Vice - President 
and Miss Park for Secretary. Under 
these efficient officers the Class has 

made remarkable progress during the 
past few months. 

In Athletic circles we are more prom- 
inent than any other class in College. 
There is no phase of College Athletics in 
which we do not excel. Under the effi- 
cient direction of our coach, Dr. A. A. 
Kern, we developed a Foot-Ball Team 
which not only honored the Class, but 
reflected great honor on our College. 
There has been a great deal of specu- 
lation as to which was the stronger of 
the two Foot-ball Teams in College, the 
Freshman or the Sophomore. In our 
mind the matter is settled beyond a 
doubt. We played six games in all. 
Two unofficial games with the Juniors, 



57 



which we won ; and four with the Soph- 
omores, two of which we won and two 
we tied. Early in the spring our Base- 
ball Team was organized, and it proved 
to be a team that will be talked of long 
after our faces arc seen no more at 
Millsaps. We easily defeated the other 
Class Teams and won the pennant. And 
then sat down and "wept for more 
worlds to conquer." 

Over half the men on the 'Varsity 
Base - ball Team were Freshman. But 
Athletics was not our only point of ex- 
cellence. In mental activities we always 
took the lead. In the Literary Socie- 
ties we played a conspicuous part, and 
in society we always took a nroud and 
superior position. But the result of our 
achievements is brought out vividly in 
the way we dealt with the Binomial 
Theorem and Quadratic Equations. 



(Indeed, the intellectual power mani- 
fested by this Class is so great that 
even Dr. Moore marvels at its im- 
mensity.) 

As a Freshman Class we are glad to 
say that in everything which we have 
entered upon, peace and harmony have 
prevailed, and as summer is near at 
hand we will soon lay aside our books, 
and our experience as Freshmen will 
remain only as members of a happy and 
prosperous year among pleasant com- 
panions. When autumn calls us back 
again, may not one link be missing from 
the golden chain which has been forged, 
but may every member return with re- 
newed determination, and as Sopho- 
mores may we never be found idle, but 
always pressing forward "towards the 
mark of the prize of the high calling," 
as it is in Sophomoredom.

able, impartial, elderly member : all of 
these qualifications point to me. and 1 
take great pleasure in i)uttinL;- in nom- 
ination the name of Mr. L. L. Tyler."" 

There beini^- no second to this mo- 
tion, Sam Graham arose, and, ])ointmg 
all the while with the index hm^er of 
his right hand, launched out upon a 
two-hours speech on the unconstitution- 
ality of the Constitution, lie said that 
he '"susposened" the Class wished him 
to offer himself as a candidate. He 
closed with a beautiful tril)nte to him- 
self and his qualifications for the office, 
saying that he had not intended to be- 
come a candidate for President unless 
he should have the opportitnity, but 
under the present circumstances he 
moved that he be elected bv acclama- 
tion. The Class, fearing another speech 
from him, proceeded to do as directed. 



W ith the assistance of several members, 
Judge T\ler was finalh' removed froni 
the chair and tlu' President-elect blush- 
ingl\- took hi> SL'at. After a short 
speech, in which he commended the good 
indgment of the clas> in this wise se- 
lection, he declared the Class meeting 
adjourned, an tlie Moot Court in ses- 
sion, sitting 111 law and equitv. 

The Sheriff was ordered to clear the 
court-room of all minors, and after John 
McXair had been removed, the docket 
was examined and found to contain the 
following cases : 

The Class vs. Phil ix. Grice, fraud- 
ulent concealment of ignorance. The 
com])lainants averred that they had been 
Avantonly deceived into thinking defend- 
ant a person of su])erior mental ability, 
and that his bearing and attitude have 
been such as to mislead and deceive the 
most skeptical, but that on divers occa- 
sions it has Ijcen shown and demon- 
strated that said defendant is not what 
he avers himself to be — to-wit. a per- 
son of exceptional lep'al acquirements 
and mental ability, but. on the contrary, 
he is of weak and unbalanced mind, and 
would petition the honorable court that 
he be so adjudged and a commission ac- 
cordingly appointed. 



62 



The Class vs. James C. Tally, gen- 
eral nuisance. 

The bill complained that the defend- 
ant did and still continues to act fool- 
ishly, thoughtlessly and childishly, prep- 
ping with each and every member of 
said class, much to the annoyance and 
against the dignity of said members, and 
prayed the tender consideration of the 
court to protect the complainants from 
acts of the said offender, and such other 
relief be granted against the said de- 
fendant as in equity and good conscience 
may appear. 

The Class vs. Jno. A. Cooper, disor- 
derly and riotous conduct. 

The Class vs. Raynor Norquist, ma- 
licious, unjustifiable singing, and other- 
wise disturbing the peace. 



The Class vs. h. Manship, Jr., *Mar- 
sensy." 

A bill of discovery to ascertain how 
much Law has been learned by P. M. 
Harper. 

After these cases had been disposed 

of, an indictment was returned against 
White for answering a question in 
Class, but, as it was his first offense, the 
Judge was inclined to be lenient. 

An injunction was issued against 
Griiffn, restraining him from learniiT^- all 
the Law. 

J. E. Franklin was declared non 
compos mentis, and a commission was 
appointed. 

After appointing Jno. Cooper guar- 
dian for O. S. Cantwell, the court ad- 
journed, serene in its knowledge that 
there was no court of appeals for revers- 
ible errors.

History of the Senior Preparatory 

Class 



» » 9 



Xives of great men all remind us 
We may make our lives sublime, 

And departing leave behind us 

Foot-prints on the sands of time."" 



On the twenty-fifth of September. 
1907, there appeared many quaint and 
curious faces on the Colleg^e Campus. 
As a result of the entrance examination 
which they had taken, many of them, 
entered the Senior Preparatory. These 
with the old pupils who had passed 
their examinations in the Junior Pre- 
paratory made a large class. 

It was easy to distinguish in the 
chapel between the old and new pupils. 
The old pupils had a pleasant sense of 
scornful superiority, as they had all the 
experience of College life; but the new 
ones had the appearance of homesick- 
ness and a certain awe in the presence 
of the old pupils. However, under the 
influence of their class-mates, the new 
ones gradually became familiar with the 
scenes and faces around them, and their 
homesickness ceased. 

There were about sixty members of 
the Class, and it has been regarded as 
one of the best Senior Preparatory 
classes in the past years. After Christ- 
mas a few of them "dropped out," but 



the number was more than replaced by 
the new men that entered. About this 
time we began to feel proud of our 
Class, and our earnest Professors; for 
Senior Prep, is the foundation of all the 
college classes. In due time this Class 
had its organization, officers were elect- 
ed, class colors were chosen, and a mot- 
to adopted. 

Having taken great interest in lit- 
erary lines, we neglected foot-ball. Nev- 
ertheless, we still bear the honor gained 
in the contest last year for the silver 
cup. We organized a base-ball team 
which did justice to us all on the field 
and bids fair to be the champion in the 
near future. 

In the literary societies we have 
done great work. Each Friday evening 
the programme announced two or three 
members of our Class to discuss the 
subject for the occasion. 

It is therefore destined that the 

world shall never have again such men 

as are to graduate in the year of 1912 

from grand old Millsaps.

present session will undoubtedly prove 
to be the most successful. We are well 
represented in every College class, and 
even among those people known as 
"Preps" you will find some whose high- 
est ambition is to be true and lo3'al Gal- 
loways. Our meetings are held in a 
commodious hall on the third floor of the 
main building, and are called to order 
promptly at eight o'clock every Friday 
evening, when we go through a regular 
program, consisting of a declamation, an 
oration, a regular debate, an irregular 
debate, and an impromptu debate, after 
which we attend to the business peculiar 
to all deliberative bodies of ^ur class. 
All meetings are open to the public, ana 
we are always glad to receive visitors. 

In April or May of each session we 
hold a special meeting in the College 
Chapel for the purpose of celebrating our 
aniversary. Our anniversary exercises 
this session took place on the first Fri- 
day night in May. The speakers were 
Orator, Basil F. Witt, Anniversarian, J. 
Cude Rousseaux, and Outside Speaker, 
George P. Hurst, from Oxford, Mis- 
sissippi. 

During the winter term we usually 
engage in a public debate with our sis- 
ter Society, The Lamar. Heretofore we 
have w^on our share of these debates, 
and, of course, expect to continue to do 
so in the future. Some time during 
Commencement there takes place "the 
big event" of literary society life, the 
Commencement Debate. Representatives 
from the two Societies meet in open com- 



bat and strive gloriously to prove what 
is and what is not. Last Commencement 
the Galloway debaters, Terrell and llul- 
lock, after a hard struggle, succeeded in 
convincing the Lamar debaters that the 
United States should neither own nor 
operate railroads; and this Commence- 
ment we expect Moore and Welch to 
force the representatives from The La- 
mar to admit that the Philippine Islands 
should be retained. 

Although we hold many elections eacii 
session, we have never yet allowed the 
least evidence of politics to be manifested 
within our hall, for we realize that it is 
literary development that we are seek- 
ing, and not practice in ])olitical methods. 
Our elections are always conducted in 
the best of feeling, and our officers al- 
ways render fair and impartial service. 

In every phase of College life outside 
the society hall, Galloway men hold re- 
sponsible positions. Since our Y. M. C. 
A. was first organized it has never had 
a President who was not a Galloway, 
and the other offices have usually been 
filled by men from our Society. We have 
sent more successful contestants to the 
Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest than 
any other literary society in this State. 
We have also sent a large per cent of the 
speakers who have represented our Col- 
lege at the summer Chautau(]uas. On 
the CoUc'^ian stafif we have always had 
several men, and have ever been well 
represented on the Bohasiiela staff. 

Looking into the future, we can see 
nothing but success for our Society. So 
long as its members support the Consti- 
tution and perform their duty, the Soci- 
ety will continue to move onward and 
onward, and to occupy more and more 
important places in the life of Millsaps 
College. T. A. S.

The Lamar Literary Society. 



The l,aniar Literary v^ocictw which 
was or<^"anizcd diiriiii;- the first session of 
Millsaps, has ever since been an im- 
portant factor of our College. Its men 
have always been found at the front 
wherever honors were to be had or med- 
als to be taken. For the last four years 
the representatives to the State orator- 
ical contests and half of those sent by 
the College to the various Chautauqua 
contests have been Lamar men. And 
of the other honors we have gotten our 
share. 

But the history of the past years has 
already been written, and we are con- 
cerned here with only that of the present 
session. We can truly say that this has 
been the most successful year in our 
history. Early in the session our broken 
ranks were replenished by a goodly set 
of men cajiable of upholding our proud 
banner. The Facult}' selected one of 
our members, Mr. C. H. Kirkland, to 
represent the College at the State con- 
test, and another, ?^Ir. T. L. IJailey, for 
the W'hitworth Chautauc|ua. 

.Vt the beginning of the session there 
was some evidence of i^olitics in the So- 
ciety, but this is only a necessary feature 
if we are to get parliamentarv training. 
No one, however, let his "party" ties 
interfere with the welfare of the Society, 
and a representative crowd of men were 
elected to serve in the following capac- 
ities : Anniversarian, C. H. Kirkland ; 



()rat<M-. W. S. Ridgeway ; Commence- 
ment debaters, T. I,. l'.aile\- and 1), \\. 
Zeix'rnick ; .Mid-Session debaters, J. L. 
Sunn-all and R. J. MuUins. Jeff Col- 
lins with his colleague from the Gallo- 
wav Society represent the College in the 
]\lillsaps-Southern debate lo be lield 
here April 17th. With these men to rep- 
resent us. we have no doubt that our 
record will ])e upheld, and that we shall 
a<.j:ain convince our friends the Gallo- 
ways that they have the wrong views 
of the subjects in the coming debates.- 

Throughout the year the work of the 
Society has been characterized by wise 
and im])artial dictation from those elected 
to preside, and a spirit of determination 
and loyalty on the part of its members. 
It is true some of us have been inclined 
at times to "cut,"' some have even strayed 
off to a show, but this, we are ]iroud to 
sav, is not characteristic of all our mem- 
bers. Only one time have we failed to 
have our regular meeting, and that time 
it was to spend a delightful evening w'ith 
our charming friends, the Belhaven girls. 

With a majority of the honors to our 
credit in the past, and the present enthu- 
siasm antl determination of our members, 
who always have in mind the motto, 
*'A'////o palma sine laborc," there is no 
danger that the Lamar Literary Society 
will not continue in its onward and up- 
ward march towards the lofty ideals to 
which its founders aspired.

( )nr ^'(nln^• Men's C'lirisiian Assdcia- 
tii'ii was ()rL;aiii/A'(l just a slmrl while 
aflei" .\lillsa])s tirsl opened her doors lo 
students. Its ohject has ever been to 
show nun the results r-f lixini^' out ni 
liarniiiux with ('.imI and lii persuade tlieni 
to acee])t Christ as llu'ir Sa\ior. 

Regldar reh^ious ser\-iees are held i)n 
eaeh Frichn- and v^inida\- nii^iit. These 
meeting's are usualK' eonducted hv one 
of the students, l)tit sometimes we have 
an address bv some member of the P'ac- 
ult\" or one of the ministers from town, 
who are alwa\s i^lad to help us in any 
way that they can. ( )n the first Friday 
nij^'ht in each month we hold a business 
meeting", at which re]:)orts are made by 
the various committees and officers, and 
other necessary business is attended to. 
Thes? meetings are full of interest, and 
are generallv well attended. About the 
middle of March in each session a revival 
is Indd under the auspices of the .Associa- 
tion, and we are glad to sa\' that our 
revival services are a source of great 
blessings to the entire student body. 
The meeting of this session was con- 
ducted bv Rev. Charles Lane, of At- 
lanta. Cicorgia. 

Diu'ing the Christmas holida-^'S del- 
egates are sent to the Southwest Stu- 
dents' Conference, wdiich convenes for 
about ten days at Ruston, Louisiana. 
The delegates meet, while there, the 
leaders in the ^". ]\f. C. .V. work m 
North America, and thev ahvavs return 
to College filled with new enthusiasm 
to carry on the work for which our As- 



st)ciation stands. Those sent from our 
College this session were: .\nder>on. 
lUiiley. lirooks, Gi^'ger. Henderson, 
I iolmes, Magee, Aloore, Stennis, and 
A\'elcli. .\11 tliese men took actue ])arts 
in tile Conference W'vOrk, and were great- 
ly benefited 1)\- being th-'re. We expect 
to send a much larger numhjr next ses- 
sion, although our (leleg;aliiiu at the last 
two Conferences has been larger than 
that of any other visiting College. 

The work of our Association is man- 
aged by the 1 'resident and the other 
menil)ers of his cabinet. The cabinet is 
composed of the President. \'ice-Pres- 
ident, Secretary, Treasurer, and the 
chairmen of the following committees: 
1 lan(ll)ook. Advertising, Devotional. Fi- 
nance, Membership, Reception, Bible 
vStudy. and Afissionary. The President, 
\ ice-President, Secretary, and Treasur- 
er are elected by the Association at the 
business meeting in Februarv and serve 
for one year. The committeemen are 
appointed by the President. Each com- 
mittee has its own si^ecial work to do, 
and it is upon the work of these com- 
mittees that the success of the Associa- 
tion is to a great extent de]:)sndent. 

The Handbook Committee edits and 
]mblishes a neat leather-bound informa- 
tion and guide-book, wdiich is distributed 
at the o])ening of the session. This lit- 
tle book ma\- he used as a memoran- 
dum and it also is an index to the va- 
rious business houses in tow^n. The Ad- 
vertising Committee advertises the spe- 
cial meetings of the Association, and 



86 



helps to arouse interest in our work in 
those who are not Christians. The De- 
votional Committee makes arrangements 
for all meetings to be provided with 
leaders, and has charge of all services. 
The work of collecting the yearly dues 
($1.50) and raising monev to meet all 
extra expenses falls upon the Finance 
Committee, of which the Treasurer of 
the Association is chairman. It is the 
duty of the Membership Committee to 
see every new student at the opening 
of the session and urge him to join 
the Association. The Social Committee 
makes arrangements for an annual re- 
ception, which is given to the new stu- 
dents on the second Friday night after 
the opening day. 

By far the most important of all the 
committee are the Bible Study and 
the Missionary Committees. The work 
of the first is to hold a special meet- 
ing early in the session, at which 
the work of systematic Bible studv is 
presented and an enrollment is taken 
of those who wish to take the course. 



Those who enroll are divided into 
groui)s of eight or ten and are pro- 
vided with good leaders. They meet 
every Sunciay afternoon at 2 o'clock, 
and spend an hour in the stud'- of some 
special part of the Bible. The Mission- 
ary Committee also holds a special meet- 
ing and presents its work. Those who 
take mission study are arranged in small 
groups with leaders. During this ses- 
sion we have been fortunate in having 
with us Dr. La Flanime, a returned 
missionary from India. He gave us 
several thrilling lectures on missionary 
work, and so intense was his enthusi- 
asm that he caused five of our students 
to recognize and accept their call to the 
foreign mission field. While Dr. La 
Flamme was with us a fund of about 
$40.00 was given by members of the 
Association to be used in purchasing 
books dealing with mission work. These 
books have been secured and have 
been placed in one of the alcoves of 
the Library, where they may easily be 
found by any who cares to read them.

Athletics. 



^ ^ ^ 



The present year has been a notable 
one in Athletics; it has seen our inter- 
collegiate appearance in basket - ball, 
base-ball, and tennis, and has demon- 
strated our ability to hold our own with 
other Colleges in these lines of sport. 
Our entrance into the intercollegiate 
arena has also served to remove the 
stigma of a lack of College spirit, which 
has so often been laid against us. The 
Professors that attempted to teach their 
classes during the tennis match with 
the University, and the inhabitants of 
Jackson and vicinity on All Fools' Day 
and the evening after the Tulane game 
will bear ample testimony to the pres- 
ence among us of this form of energy. 
The year is also noted for the adoption 
of a scholarship requirement for partici- 
pation in Athletics, and for the birth of 
a new athletic organization, the Croquet 
Club, which, however, we regret to an- 
nounce, while yet in its infancy, sus- 
tained an unhappy demise, due, it is 
believed, to the lack of proper nour- 
ishment. 

Only three class foot-ball teams were 
organized. After a number of futile 
efforts and two unofficial defeats at the 
hands of the Freshmen, the Juniors suc- 
cumbed and left the two lower classes 
to struggle for the championship. The 
Freshman team was composed of light- 
er, faster material than the Sophomores 
and rounded into form more quickly 
than their opponents ; they were thus 
enabled to take the first two games by 
the scores of 9 — o and 11 — o. The scor- 
ing was done by Jones and Boo^es, the 
former making a touchdown in each 
game and the latter a field goal in the 
first and a touchdown in the second. 

In the meantime, under the efficient 
coaching of Mr. W. F. Murrah and the 
stimulating influence of that promised 
repast at the Presidential mansion, the 



Sophomores developed a defense against 
which the Freshmen were unable to 
make steady gains, and the third game 
ended o — o. In the fourth and last 
game, after Galloway had made a touch- 
down from a blocked forward pass, 
the Sophomores by constant hammering 
on the opposing right tackle shoved 
Wasson over the line with but thirty 
seconds left to play. Neither side kicked 
the goal and the score remained 5 — 5. 

For the Class of igii the steadiest 
and most efficient players were Adams, J. 
C, Galloway, and Jones ; Boggs handled 
kicks cleanly and got his own nunts off 
in good form, but was weak on inter- 
ference ; it is to the credit of the Fresh- 
men ends that their opponents made no 
attempts to circle them. The best work 
for the Class of 1910 was done by 
Baird, who ran his team well and played 
in the same fashion himself, and by 
Terrell and Davies, both of whom 
played a hard game throughout. Rick- 
etts also put up a plucky game at left 
end. Owing to the fact that only four 
official games were played, the Fresh- 
men failed to win the cup, but with a 
percentage of 1,000 to their opponents 
000, they are justly entitled to the cham- 
pionship of the College — they not only 
beat every team two games, but were 
themselves unbeaten. 

The interest in basket-ball has been 
desultory; Manager Guinn proved to be 
faithful and efficient, but succeeded in 
arousing only slight enthusiasm for the 
winter sport. A step forward, however, 
was taken in placing it upon the inter- 
collegiate basis, and next year will 
doubtless see still further advance. The 
first game with Mississippi College was 
played in Clinton and lost; on the fol- 
lowing Monday, on her own "-rounds, 
Millsaps played desperately to retrieve 
her defeat, but failed by the score of 



109 



14 — 9- Miirrah in the first p^ame, C. II. 
Kirkland in the second, and T C. Kirk- 
land in both games played well, and the 
cdTitests showed plainly that we have 
the material for a winning team if we 
are only willing to underpin the neces- 
sary training — without which it is use- 
less to expect to win. 

This is the first year that the Col- 
lege has played intercollegiate base-ball, 
and its auspicious beginning augurs well 
for the years to come. The season 
opened with an interclass series in which 
the Freshmen were overwhelm"- ~^- vic- 
torious. From the players in these 
games Coach Hall of the Cotton States 
League picked a team that has already 
proved its mettle by defeating Tulane 
two out of three games. Reed, Clark, 
and Galloway pitched creditable ball 
throughout the series, and in the last 
game, which was won by the narrow 
margin of 2 — i, the entire team nlayed 
like veterans. In this game Jones de- 
serves especial mention not only for his 
timely hit, which scored all of our runs, 
but for the conception and skillful ex- 
ecution of a double play in the ninth 
inning that snatched victory from the 
very jaws of defeat and turned loose 
upon the city a mob of howling colle- 
gians, who proceeded to take complete 
possession and to demonstrate in con- 
crete fashion, 

"That 'twas a famous victory." 
The Association is glad to take this 
opportunity of cordially thanking the 
immortal John Armstrong for the cour- 
tesies and aid that he extended with so 



liberal a hand upon that memorable 
occasion. 

Under the direction of Professor 
H. T. Moore, the Tennis Club has en- 
joyed a healthy activity, which has man- 
ifested itself in the improvements added 
to the courts and in the arrangement of 
a tournament with the University of 
Mississippi. Although Millsaps lost the 
contest by the close score of 6 — 4, 2 — 6, 
1 1 — 9, she has the satisfaction of hav- 
ing played the best game that the Uni- 
versity met with during her tour of the 
State. In the number of games won 
the two teams were equal, and three 
times during the last set was Millsaps 
within one point of victory. Baird 
played a steady game, and had Collins 
been able to use his own racket, there 
is little doubt but that there would have 
been a different tale to tell. 

Gymnasium classes have been held 
regularly throughout the year and Mr, 
Addington has proved himself a com- 
petent instructor. A special class was 
formed for instruction in tumbling, etc., 
which has reflected credit upon itself 
and its leader. With the rapid growth 
of the College along various lines the 
need of a modern gymnasium, ade- 
quately equipped with apparatus and 
bathing facilities, has become a neces- 
sity. Physical cultures will never be- 
come of importance in college life until 
this demand is met ; it is useless to ex- 
pect students to take an interest in this 
form of athletics until better equipment 
is provided.

To the Woods. 

» 9 » 

What joy in early spring to roam 

The woods, llic rising sun's slant rays 

Piercing the myriad budding boughs, 

Splotching with gold the trunks of trees, 

The leaves of shrubs, the blades of grass, 

Filtering in streams of white through mists 

That gather in those woody shades; 

Far from the busy haunt of man, 

Where all is still, serene, and quiet. 

Save for the call and counter-cry 

Of blue-jays; now and then the bark 

Of cautious, curious squirrel there. 

The swish of branches as he leaps 

From tree to tree; and mosquitoes 

Singing their song of blood and wai , 

The crickets having chirped themselves 

To drowsy sleep; the frogs sung hoarse; 

The owl silent, hooting no more, 

His eves now closed in slumbrous rest; 

And other night-waked creatures stol'n 

From light of day to their dark holes; 

Here one can hear the vibrant song 

Of Nature pulsing through the air; 

Take great deep breaths made wondrous sweet 

By fragrant flowers and night dews — 

Pure, clear, fresh-washed, pleasing cool, 

Delicious with the sense of life 

And growth, so real, distinct it seems; 

See Nature in her purity, 

Her innocence and careless freedom; 

Get near to Life's strong heart and feel 

Its helpful throb; have stir within 

Longing desires — Oh, passionate! — 

To live as true, to be as pure; 

Ennobled with inspiring thoughts 

Purer and higher; yearning now 

To be more worth, to better know, 

To love his God ; to have the quiet 

And peace that perfect goodness brings.

Captain Jack's Whale. 



9 » » 



"I*\- I'inqn! hoys." said the C\'ii)tain ; 
"I "\(.' fi)Iln\vc(I tlie sea tin- \ny[y \cars, 
and 1 nrvcr was really tri^^iilcncd hut 
that one time." 

I saw that Captain jack Smith had 
a st()r\- upon his mind, and was anxinus 
to get it off, and as I was equall\- anx- 
ious to hear him, 1 therefore said: 
"How was that, Captain? can't you tell 
us the story?" 

"\\'ell." responded the Captain, "it 's 
nijiii onto fifteen years ago, and I 
haven't as <;-ood a memory as I once 
had. hut 1 will ^ive the thin'>- as near 
as I can. 

"\ou must understand that 1 was 
once in the whaling line, and that T 
sailed out from Xew York in command 
of one of the tinest ships in the trade, 
the "SunMower," of which I held a half 
share. We were hound to the North 
Atlantic, and my crew had heen shipped 
upon shares — that is, instead of wages 
they were each to receive a ])ortion of 
the tishing as payment. Manv of them 
were men that had heen out with me 
before, and with whom I was verv pop- 
ular. It was this popularity. I suppose, 
that led to a resolve on the part of the 
men that each should forego his share, 
and that the first whale taken should be 
wdiolly mine. After this resolve a 
bright lookout was kept, and I believe 
that every man was as anxious to see 
the first fish as though it was to be his 



own propertv. 'Ca])tain jack's whale" 
was common talk with them, and its 
value as freely- talked of a^ though we 
already had him aboard in oil. 

"At last one day the lookout at the 
masthead shouted, 'There she blows !' 
and in an instant the ship was a scene 
of life and bustle. The small boats on 
right and left were lowered, and into 
one of them I sprang, determined to 
have a hand in killing the first fish. 

'' 'Now then, bo}-s, pull awav for 
Captain jack's whale !' shouted the 
steersman of my boat, and the boy.-, 
with a cheer, struck out for the fish, 
which was somewhat less than five 
miles away. We were soon v^ with it, 
and I acted as harpooner, striking the 
iron deep into the fish, and petting a 
hold not easily shaken off. Away he 
went like a flash, but. to our astonish- 
ment, he sto])ped not more than four 
hundred yards oft", and lay perfectly 
still. \\'e hesitated for a moment, and 
then pulled towards him. Scarcely had 
we made half a dozen strokes when the 
monster turned and with fearful speed 
came directly down upon the boat. 
There was no time to think, for almost 
before a minute had elapsed, he w^as 
upon us with wide-stretched jaws and 
barelv leaving the twelve men time to 
throw themselves into the sea, he 
crushed the boat into atoms. The other 
boat came directly to our aid. and, the 



i66 



whale swimming leisurely away, wc 
were picked up without the loss of one 
man. 

"All this had been seen b>- the look- 
outs on board the ship, and another 
boat was sent at once to our relief. Al- 
though some of the men were rather 
frightened at the monster, yet I had 
determined to tackle him again. There- 
fore when the boat came up we started 
for a second attack, and soon arrived 
within about a hundred yards of him 
and tried to get around to his side for 
another blow. Each effort we made 
we would find him directly in front of 
us. There was nothing to do but to 
pull straight on ; no sooner did he per- 
ceive this than, with a dash as before, 
he came at the leading boat. This time 
we didn't even have warning enough 
to throw ourselves overboard, and be- 
fore we could even think the boat was 
cracked like a nut, and two of my men 
were crushed in the monster's jaws. As 
before, we were picked up by the other 
boat, and now. with three boats' crews 
in one, we returned to the shin, though 
every one of us was full of revenge. 

"We pulled steadily on, and were 
soon on board, but nothing woulcf sat- 
isfy the men but to chase the monster 
to death. We had scarcely gone a 
mile when I saw the whale coming di- 
rectly towards the ship. He came with- 
in fifty yards of the ship, leisurely 
swimming around us and occasionally 
stretching his vast jaws, as thoueh he 
intended to swallow us whole. I 
watched him carefully, and even when 
he svvam away I was not satisfied, for 



before I could realize the fact, I saw 
him turn suddenly and with the sjiced 
of a steamer come directly u])on the 
ship. Me struck us about the middle; of 
the shi]-) with a fcjrce like the shock of 
an earth(|uake. Every timber in the 
ship cracked and the topmast fell down 
upon the deck. I was terrified beyond 
all description, for I knew that the blow 
had destroyed the shin, and that in less 
than an hour all hands would be at the 
mercy of the monster. 1 only watched 
long enough to see him swim away 
from us once more, possibly for another 
attack, and then ran below. It was just 
as I thought : there was a hole big 
enough to admit the body of a man a 
few feet below the water-line, and the 
ship was sinking. 

"There was nothing for us to do but 
to get out the remainino^ boats and, se- 
curing as many provisions as we could, 
to leave the ship to its fate and meet 
our own with the monster, who un- 
doubtedly awaited us. We had hardly 
time to save what few things we did, 
when the good ship went down, and 
our crew were upon the broad ocean in 
three small boats. 

"My story ends here, for the whale 
was satisfied with his destruction of the 
ship and did not show himself again, 
and the third day aft?r we were picked 
up by an English ship and landed at 
Liverpool. 

"It was a good while ago, but I '11 
bet that not one man that was on board 
the good ship "Sunflower" will ever for- 
get Captain Jack's whale." 

S. E. Williamson.

The Doctor's Boy. 



^ ^ ^ 



It was the afternoon of the first 
day of April. Dr. Price had finished 
writing questions on the Ioit^ black- 
board at one end of his lecture-room 
and had taken his seat on the rostrum. 
Every man of us Sophomores was busy 
with the task at hand, a Chemistry test. 
For about fifteen minutes all had been 
quiet, when presently there was a rap 
on the door. The doctor answered and 
we could hear him as he talked witn 
someone just outside. Soon he re- 
entered the room, and, mounting the 
rostrum, said : ''Attention, please, I will 
have to dismiss the class and ""o look 
after my little boy. He has not re- 
turned home from school. The class is 
dismissed." Having having said this, 
the Doctor hastily left the room with a 
look of anxious concern on his face. 

If I may not say we Sophomores 
were gratified at the turn things had 
taken, we were at least in no melancholy 
mood, as we surged out of Science Hall 
and dispersed, some of us turning to 
the right and some to the left, as we 
went to our respective boarding-places. 
Few of us felt that there was any 
grounds for uneasiness as to the Doc- 
tor's boy. 

I went to my room arm-in-arm with 
Frank Henry, my closest chum. Frank 
boarded in town, a mile and a half from 
the College, but he spent a <Toodly parr 
of his time with me in my room at the 
dormitory. So we walked along. Frank 
turned to me and asked : 

"What do you suppose has haooened 
to the Doctor's kid?" 

"Oh ! I suppose he is playing along 
the way like you and I used to do when 
we were his age," I answered. 



"I hope that is true, and very likely 
it is," said Frank, "but I can't help feel- 
ing uneasy about him when I think how 
the crimes committed by those 'black 
hand' devils have been increasing of 
late. I saw an account in this morn- 
ing's paper where, in the southern part 
of the State, a child had been stolen 
and a demand for several thousand dol- 
lars made for its safe return. I guess 
if there are any of the 'black hand' in 
this city, the Doctor's money appeals to 
them. Eh, Tom?" 

"Well I should say!" I replied; and 
giving Frank a mischievous look, added : 
"By the way, old fellow, don't you sup- 
pose that the Doctor's money might be 
made to account for a part of your af- 
fection for his daughter?" 

Frank blushed deeply, for he was 
one among the many who had fallen a 
victim to this fair young co-ed's charms ; 
but he was game and not ver-v- easily 
teased. "Oh ! you can knock me," he an- 
swered, "but you know that dc^-^ down 
in your heart you can't blame me for 
loving that girl. Now, honest, can vou 
Tom?" 

I answered "No," for really I could 
not ; and here we dropped the conver- 
sation, for by this time we had reached 
my room. Tossing our books aside, we 
were soon into our base-ball clothes 
and away to the athletic park, where foi 
awhile we forgot everything else in our 
enthusiasm for the game. 

About sundown we again arrived at 
the dormitory and learned there, to our 
surprise and sorrow, that Rupert Price 
had not been found. The police had 
searched the town and a neighboring 
swamp, but no trace of him could be 



i6S 



found. Mrs. Price and Dorothy were 
said to be so stricken with grief that 
they were inconsolable. How Frank and 
I and the rest of the fellows did wish 
that there was something we could do 
to help ! But, as there wasn't, the alter- 
native was simply to wait and to hope 
that everything would turn out all right. 

It was almost dark when Frank left 
the dormitory for town, nevertheless he 
decided not to take a car. He had sel- 
dom ridden since the base-ball season 
opened, as he had found that the walks 
to and from town had kept him in good 
trim for base-ball. His way led by Dr. 
Price's home, and as he passed by he 
paused. Amid moans and sobs he could 
hear Mrs. Price cry out repeatedlv in 
bitter anguish : "Oh, my baby, my little 
baby boy ! can't someone find my baby ?" 
He could hear Dorothy crying too. 
How it pierced his very heart! Some 
good ladies were trying to comfort 
them, but Frank knew well, and pain- 
ful the knowledge was to him, that for 
them there would be no surcease of sor- 
row until the "kid" was found. When 
he passed on, tears were in his eyes and 
a prayer was on his lips : "Lord help 
me, or some of the men, to find the 
'kid' to-night." 

Afterwards when Frank looked back 
over the events of that night and re- 
membered the words of prayer that he 
had uttered, he was sure that his faith 
was pretty weak when he uttered them. 
But who can blame him if he had 
doubts as to whether his prayer would 
be answered? The probabilities were 
certainly against its being answered. 
The fact that no trace of the lost boy 
had been found led to the conclusion 
that he had been stolen. If this con- 
clusion were true, it was certainly not 
probable that one wary enough to kid- 
nap the boy was so stupid as to allow 
him to be retaken that night. But if 
Frank's faith was weak, to balance this 
he had one strong point. He was in 
earnest about the prayer that he had 
made and would have risked his own 



life quickly enough to bring about an 
answer to it. When he had i)assed the 
Doctor's several hundred vards, he sat 
down on the grass to think, reluctant 
simply to go to his room and await de- 
velopments, yet totally at a loss to 
know what he could do that would be 
of any avail. 

While we leave Frank thus meditat- 
ing, I must enlighten the readers of this 
story a bit with respect to the myste- 
rious disappearance of Rupert Price. 
About a half-mile from the ^nblic 
school building in the direction of the 
College was a small shop, not much 
larger than an electric street-car, where 
for some months a dark-skinned, black- 
eyed Italian had been keeping a fruit- 
stand. Rupert, as he passed here daily 
going to and from school, had attracted 
the attention of this Italian, who, having 
found out who the boy was, had watched 
eagerly yet warily for a chance to kid- 
nap him. Finally his opportunity had 
come, and the very simplicity of his 
tactics had saved him from susoicion. 
Having seized Rupert, he had hastily 
put a handkerchief in his mouth, tied 
him "hog fashion," and placed him in a 
chest in the rear end of his shop. Then 
he had carelessly resumed his duties, 
expecting to carry Rupert to the "Ital- 
ian quarter" that night when he went 
to supper. 



How long Frank sat there on the 
grass beside the sidewalk he was un- 
able afterwards to say. So burdened 
was his mind that he was heedless of 
the passing time. He watched the new 
moon rise, and with something of sat- 
isfaction saw the clouds shut out her 
rays from the earth." A bright night 
would be almost mockery," thought he, 
"when so many hearts are sad." His 
reverie was at last interrupted by ap- 
proaching foot-steps. The figure of a 
man carirying something on his back 
could be dimly discerned coming up 
the sidewalk. Frank decided to lie qui- 



169 



etly by and escape the observation of 
the passer - by, and would have suc- 
ceeded in doing so had not something 
unexpected happened. As has been 
stated above, it was the first day of 
April. Some mischievous boy had, for 
a Fools' Day trick, placed a rail across 
the walk just a few feet beyond where 
Frank had turned aside on the grass. 
The passing man, when almost opposite 
Frank, tripped over this rail and fell 
sprawling, as he fell losing his hold 
on the sack he was carrying. Frank 
sprang to his feet in utter surprise, and 
simultaneously with his getting up the 
clouds shifted a bit and the silver rays 
of the moon illuminated the scene. For 
a brief second he glanced at what was 
before him : the dark figure of a man 
lying at full length, and to one side a 
small boy bound so securely that he 
could hardly wiggle. Instantly the sit- 
uation dawned upon him and he emitted 



a yell for aid. The amazed Italian, 
probably thinking that he had been 
waylaid, was no sooner down than up, 
but before he could make away Frank 
had seized him. For a moment they 
grappled together, but Frank was no 
match for his opponent. The Italian 
threw him hard on the concrete pave- 
ment, and that was the last he re- 
membered. 

When he awoke he was in bed. In- 
voluntarily he put his hand to his head. 
"What hurts you?" a sweet voice asked. 
He opened his eyes and saw a face he 
had often seen in his dreams. It was 
Dorothy Price's. 

"My head," he answered. Then he 
remembered it all. "Did they catch the 
man?" he asked. 

"Yes; he is safe in jail," she replied. 
"The policeman came up just in time 
to save you. You are awfully brave."

Afterward. 



* * * 



And now cometh the end ! With 
how much meaning is fraught that sim- 
ple httle combination of three letters ! 
The end — of a session's horrid hard- 
ships, but also of a season's pleasant 
association ; the end of midnight vigils 
with Horace and Mathematics, but al- 
so moonlight surveys with telescope 
and co-eds; the end of zeros in the 
hard, drowsy lecture-room, but also of 
tete-d-tetcs with the sweet, pretty co- 
eds. How the word conveyeth both sor- 
row and gladness, both pleasant mem- 
ories and sorrowful reflections ! 

Not this year hath our Heavenly Fa- 
her removed one of our student number 
from us death ; how glad we be ! But 
into the midst of our worthy instruct- 
ors hath He sent the angel who bear- 
eth the sickle, and that sickle hath cut 
away the life of our beloved teacher; 
how sorrow-stricken we be ! As we 
stood o'er that manly form in the man- 
tle of death, with a heavenly peace up- 
on his face, though it was cold and set 
in stillness, how our hearts did murmur, 
if our lips could not utter, the prayer 
that our lives might be as noble as his, 
that our characters might be like his of 
oaken strength, that our faith in the 
Deity and in the Bible might be as his — 
like a little child's ! And how our hearts 
yearned to express our sympathy for 
those whom he left behind ! May God 
bless them and tenderly care for them ! 



r.ul we will not be sad; for he liveth 
with the living Christ. 

And he had been interested in the 
revival. Oil, the memory of that re- 
vival is to many of us as dear as the 
Christmas holidays ! It was the greatest 
meeting that we have seen at Millsaps 
College. God bless Brothers Lane and 
Anderson and Jones ! They prayed and 
wrought so faithfully that thirty-seven 
of our companions who have become en- 
deared to us in class-room and on cam- 
pus decided after prayer and battle to 
fight the Christian warfare. Shall we 
soon forget the happy night that we 
prayed till nearly two o'clock — till from 
just ten Christians in a room in the 
"shacks" the number had swelled to 
twenty ? 

Ah ! this year, together with more 
abundant Athletics and College spirit, 
hath been filled with life-and-death is- 
sues, with large enterprises. Just as we 
can ne'er forget our first series of three 
with Tulane, and the new sign "2 to i ' 
that each automobile, carriage, and 
wagon chauffeur had concocted for him, 
so we shall not soon forget the launch- 
ing of the effort to build on this cam- 
pus a Y. M. C. A. building. Have not 
other colleges as small as wis under- 
taken and accomplished this? Aye — and 
zvc can, if we will! 

But the end draweth nigh: fraught 
with sorrow and fraught with joy it is 



171 



here. Shall they both not be pleasant? 
Not one mark of the bruise from a 
stone in the way, not one gray hair that 
hath come while we pored over mid- 
night study, not one pleasant evening 
with our fairer, gentler friends, but has 
served to make men and fighters of us ; 
for, optimistic at heart, we would be not 
tame book-worms, but positive com- 
panions of men to the amelioration of all. 
And when each of us who now are 
students hath come not to the end of a 
session in College, but to the end of life, 
may it have been a useful life, overflow- 



ingly full of an unselfish love for God 
and men, and may he thus end his days 
in peace ! 

"I was ever a fighter, so — one fight 
more. 
The best and the last! 
I would hate that Death bandaged my 
eyes, and forbore. 
And bade me creep past. 
No! let me taste the whole of it. fare 
like my peers 
The heroes of old. 
Bear the brunt, in a minute pay glad 
life's arrears 
Of pain, darkness, and cold."
