FOREWORD 



/Y|\NCE more the BoBASHELA extends its cordial Choctaw 
VcJx greeting to all "good friends" of Millsaps College. If 
it can present a truthful picture of the varying light 
and shade of our college life, and in days to come recall the 
days gone by, and to them link the memories of our Alma 
Mater, then it will have done its work, for it will have fulfilled 
the mission on which we send it.

Memories 



In that sweet, quiet hour 

Of a day near its close, 
When the warm fire bids 

Us to dream and to doze, 
When dull Now is forgotten, 

With its joy and its care, 
T is of Millsaps I am thinking 

And the friends I knew there. 



Again in the moonlight 

Merry voices I hear, 
Then a song through the stillness 

Is borne to my ear — 
Forgot is French Grammar, 

And "T. A." divine, 
For the shack boys are singing 

To "Sweet Adeline." 



Now a morning of spring-time, 

On that campus I see, 
All the elms in green glory 

And song birds in each tree. 
There are hedges of roses, 

Wild strawberries, too, 
And the soft southern breeze 

Tells of violets new. 



And as stars after sunset, 

One by one, fill the sky. 
So the faces and voices 

Of old friends multiply. 
From lesson to library, 

Back to lesson again, 
All happy together — 

As we should have been. 



But some wind has blown us 

Away from that dear place; 
Just a few now are left 

Our commencement to grace. 
So here's health, wealth and joy 

From hearts that beat true; 
Fairest Class, NINETEEN TEN, 

Here's to Millsaps and YOU.

Senior History 




HAVE been entrusted with the high honor of writing the 
History of the Class of 1910. A serious task! More so, 
because my capricious .Muse of Inspiration has forsaken 
me at the most needful moments, and because my recent 
trip to "Nod Land," where I had hoped to rind some light on 
the subject has also proved absolutely fruitless. Now, 
taking into consideration the score of my brilliant predecessors and their 
equally brilliant achievements, 1 begin to realize the gravity of my own 
situation and the perilous disadvantage at which my classmates are placed. 
Hut. gentle reader, only remembering that "Officium primum est." I resolved 
to give you something, even if it be a free version of "The Same Old Story 
in the Same Old Way," and when my task is finally completed, I shall breathe 
a sigh of relief and withdraw with humblest apologies into the remotest 
corner. 

To begin with, ours was a case of "Veni, vidi, vici," as the first and decisive 
battle was won by us at the time when we were in our embryonic stage, in 
September of 1906. When our band of seventy-three came together and 
organized into a class, it was decided unanimously that green should not be 
selected as a class color. Thus we at once deprived the upper classmen of 
their traditional pleasure of prefixing such a beautiful epithet to our names 
as "verdant Freshmen," and, moreover, we placed ourselves upon a higher 
level than any Freshmen had ever dreamed of. Very soon, indeed, the entire 
student bodv came to realize that the Class of '10 was composed of individ- 
uals with whom they would have to reckon. Throughout the entire session 
we maintained the highest standard in every phase of college life. W e were 
successful in our class work; our men served as beacons of light and ex- 
amples of eloquence in both literary societies; we were well represented in 
every issue of the Collegian; we took an active part in Y. M. C. A. work, and 
in Athletics we outstripped on the whole every other class. Finally, when 
the session was over and we bade each other good-bye. we realized that the 
foundation of our class monument was well laid. Each one of us went in his 
direction to accumulate new strength, in order to help build this monument 



37 



tn grander proportions and loftier heights than had ever been attempted 
heretofore by any other class. 

September of 1' 07 found us again assembled in the College chapel. We 
were somewhat diminished in number (twenty-one of us having remained 
in the world) but not in spirit. With the same zeal and zest we threw our- 
selves into our work. We attacked the hated "sines" and "cosines." as well 
as our opponents on the football field, with an equal fervor; we "rode" bravely 
over the well-trodden but rocky paths of Virgil and Xenophon ; we have 
gone through all the immeasurable pleasures which the immortal "T. A." 
afforded tis ; we have subjected ourselves to tin- inspiring effects of H.,S, and 
learned to pronounce with precise correctness, "Ich liebe dich," when ad- 
dressing ourselves to the fairest members of the fair sex. In the halls of 
our Literary Societies, the arrows of eloquence of the members of '10 were 
more sharp and piercing than ever. During the baseball sease)n we dragged 
into the dust of defeat many an upper as well as lower classman, and in the 
"Gym" we proved preeminent. Finally, when the battle was called off and 
we were proclaimed victors, we found that our class monument was more 
than half built. Again we parted for the summer to return as Juniors and 
continue our noble work. 

In the fall of the year 1S08, our Class entered upon an era of almost un- 
precedented success. After having spent some time in lamenting over those 
eighteen who had not returned to college, we took up our work. And work it 
was! Some of us settled down, determined to master the structural formula 
of "para-oxy-phenyl-alpha-amino propionic acid." thus attaining fame ami 
immortality. Some have thought it their ditty to proclaim the deeds of the 
Class of '10 "all over the land of cotton," and especially among the fair and 
beautiful. Like the bards of old. they have adopted for that purpose a well- 
known song, used by their colleagues on the Rhine: 

"Mein Herz ist wie ein Bienen-Haus, 
Die Madchen sind die Bienen; 

Sie gehen in, Sie gehen aus ; 

Mein 1 lerz ist wie ein I'lienen-Haus." 

Still others have been puzzling their brains in an effort to prove to the world 
that Newton was not such a wonder after all, that the Class of '10 could defy 
all "Laws of Motion"; and really, at the close of the session, several of us 
have found ourselves at exactly the same point from which we started. I do 
not doubt that we would have succeeded in overthrowing the laws of the 
insignificant Newton were it not For our beloved Dr. Sullivan. The latter, 
fearing that we contemplated the downfall of the old reliable school of 



38 



Physics, began at mice to apply "specials" as an antidote and I", behold, we 
moved on with the rapidity of a glacier! 

But all these noble efforts and worth)- attainments were nothing in com- 
parison with the task of establishing our College weekly, the Purple and White. 
We are proud that the idea was originated bv one from our midst. An indi- 
vidual, whose outward appearance is that of an ordinary mortal, were it not 
for the pince-nez which ornaments his Roman nose, and the red hair which 
falls in profusion about his philosophic brow, but whose inward qualities are 
those of a literary genius still in his teens, and a strong tendency for "wire 
pulling." 1 refer to no one else than "Red," alias "Rough." Once he "dipt 
into the future far as human eye could see" and perceived at once a wide 
and undeveloped field for the latent literary forces of the Junior Class. Upon 
communicating the idea to the rest of us, he met with a hearty support, and 
soon a crowd of enthusiastic Juniors were set t< > work, carrying through their 
magnificent plan under the benevolent auspices of our esteemed I >r. Kern. 
A few days later, the rustling sound of one of the best college weeklies in 
America was heard in every nook and corner of the campus. Names like 
"Ed" Brewer, "Boyd" Campbell, "Gus" Kelly, "Prep" Wasson, "Red" Xeill, 
and man_\', many others will be handed down to posterity, for they are the 
ones who gave whatever brains and time they could spare to the development 
of our Purple and White. 

In the meantime, the sun was rising and setting, and when the hour of 
parting struck the third annual knell, we looked up and beheld that our mon- 
ument had risen to a dizzy height, like one of the pyramids of old Egypt, and 
that the monuments of those who had gone before us looked much smaller 
and poorer in workmanship. "Piene est," said we to each other and departed, 
each one taking his course. 

Xow we have reached our "annus mirabilissimus," and with pangs oi 
regret we must say that our present number has dwindled down to twenty- 
six. The momentous annals of our last year's struggle are not yet completed, 
but we have already accomplished some things that constitute a worthy and 
brilliant crown for our unsurpassed class monument. In the fall our attention 
was centered on the gridiron, and the spirit of our courageous football players 
has been wisely likened to that displayed by those who once protected the 
pass of Thermopylae. They had experienced a similar fate to our men ; beaten 
but not defeated! Never defeated! For the spirit of our revered heroes is 
just as staunch and undaunted as ever! 

The Class of '10 is still leading the Purple and White, and continues to do 
noble work through its columns. The artistic and literary work of the Boba- 

39 



siikla is being dune exclusively by the members of '10, and one of our numer- 
ous followers of Demosthenes is to represent our College at the coming State 
Oratorical Contest. 

Meanwhile we have accumulated new stores of knowledge. We fully 
comprehend the difference between "conation" and "cognition"; we have 
learned the most startling fact, that besides us there have been Trilobites 
Paradoxides and Pentromites Godona who have added to the sum total of the 
universe. Some of us are still in quest of the "Philosopher's Stone," while 
others enjoy immensely the course in "star gazing" while in the friendly 
embrace of Morpheus. In short, we are still in the midst of our troubles, but 
our days are numbered, and we shall soon have to leave the protecting walls 
of our dear Alma Mater — one of the largest and best classes she has ever 
sent forth — and go out into the world to grapple a mighty battle with Life. 
So, with the old Grit and Spirit, forward, boys, for 

"Is it well that while we range with Science, glorying in Time, 
City children soak' and blacken soul and sense in city slime: 

"Follow you the Star that lights a desert pathway, yours or mine. 
Forward, till you see the highest human nature is divine. 

''Follow Light ami do the Right — for man can half control his doom — 
Till you find the deathless Angel seated in the vacant tomb." 

Mi irris Stri im, 
Historian. 



Here's to the man who first began 
To knock on Millsaps College ; 

May he stand where all the land 
Can ridicule his knowledge. 



If he should be sent out to sea 
On a mission of any kind, 

Let the crew, in a leaky canoe, 
leave him far behind. 



If he should travel on his native gravel, 
Or remain on his parental plot. 

May snow and rain, sorrow and pain, 
Forever be his lot. 



BUT here's to the men who now begin 
To take HER interests to reart, 

May they be blest in the haven of rest, 
As men who have done their part

Senior fl>ropbec\> 



For I looked into the future far as the eye could see, 

Saw the vision of the Seniors and all the "humbugs" they could be. 

Am 1 mad that 1 should cherish that which will not come to pass? 
1 will pluck it from my prophecy, our deeds will surely last. 

As the Senior is. the world is; he is mated to their plans. 

And the greatness of his learning will have weight in many lands. 

For I looked into the future far as the eye could see, 

Saw the vision of the Seniors and all the great men they would he. 

Saw that some were business men in a busy world of labor. 
A millionaire in fortune, and nobly helping out his neighbor. 

Some were versed in surgery, assisting the afflicted. 
Curing the worst diseases tongue or pen has e'er depicted. 

Some were teaching the young, in the ways of truth and right. 
Giving" them lofty aspirations, preparing them for the fight. 

Some will show a light to all men, preach a gospel, all men's good, 
Show them their salvation by believing in Christ's spilt blood. 

Men my brothers, men the Seniors, ever doing something new, 
Where is the limit to the many noble things they'll do? 

For I doubt not thru all the Seniors one noble purpose holds. 
Inspires their comrades, and public sentiment moulds. 

We yearn for the large excitement that coming years will yield, 
We are eager as a boy when first he leaves his father's field. 

43 



And our spirits leap within us to be gone before us then. 
Underneath the light we look at, in among the throngs of men. 

There the common sense of us shall hold a fretful world at bay, 
With our learning we shall lift them up from day to day. 

So now into the world we plunge, to wander far and long, 

A sad farewell to Hooks and Profs., a farewell to Chapel-song.

And 't is out on North Stale Street 
That the chubby little student 

And sweet schoolgirl chance to meet. 

As a flashy Sophomore, next, 
She wears his bright frat pin; 

She a Senior at Belhaven, 

He a frat man — just talfen in. 

But now, a Junior dandy, 

An awful swell gallant. 
He mafyes profound advances 

To this charming debutante. 

At length, a learned Senior, 

He tells his tale, somehow; 
And, well — no matter what she said, 

She darns his stockings now.

LAW CLASS 



History of tbc Xaw Class 




rlEXEYER any extraordinary phenomenon appears and the 
light of the investigating and inquisitive curiosity is turned 
thereupon for inspection, the first question usually is: "From 
whence did it come?" 

The Millsaps Law Class of l c )10 is undoubtedly the most 
extraordinary phenomenon of its kind that has appeared since 
the palmy days when our ancestors dwelt in the leafy-boughed palaces of 
Monkey-land. And the eternal and ever-recurring question of the populace 
is: "From whence did it come?" Xo proof need be offered to substantiate 
the assertion as to its being the most rambunctious phenomenon of the age; 
hut we only ask you, wearied reader, if you have any doubt about it. just to 
take a sidelong glance at any of its representatives and see if you, too, do not 
ask the question: "From whence did it come?" 

But your question will remain unanswered. It is an unsolved problem. 
Many theories have been offered by eminent Bugologists in their efforts to 
find their origin ; some have said that Teddy must have routed them from 
the jungles of Africa. Others have claimed that they are harmless specimens 
that Ted sent over. They have even been dragged into the North Pole con- 
troversy, both Cook and Peary claiming to have found them. However, 
little credence has been given to the statements of these gentlemen. 

There are others who claim, with some degree of certainty, that these are 
refugees from the infested districts of the boll weevil, otherwise, bankrupt 
and disgruntled farm hands. 

The gentlemen composing the Class have each a clear and distinct indi- 
viduality, and by these characteristics ye shall know them ; viz., Alford 
the Bashful, Berry the Dumb, Boutwell the Beautiful, Collins the Cunning, 
Ellzev the Erudite, Lee the Learned. Luper the Lean, Mayes the Regular, 
Martin the Sanctified, Osborn the Opulent, Snowden the Reformed, Simmons 
the Celibate, Thompson the Intelligent. Waller the Overworked, Williams 
the Silent. 

All these celebrities corralled into one bunch cause the Class of '10 to 
shine with undimmed lustrosity, even as irridescent and luminiferous satel- 



50 



lites in the illimitable firmament of imperishable grandiloquence. Their char- 
acteristics have permeated every feature of the college life like the odor of 
immemorial hash filling every nook and corner of that abode of afflicted hu- 
manity called a boarding-house. 

But, notwithstanding the varied and heterogeneous propensities making 
up the Class, two common features are found in every member. One of these 
is an inordinate, undisguised and immeasurable wealth of ignorance about 
even-thing in general, and law in particular. The other common character- 
istic is a strong and determined ambition to be leaders in the onward march 
of the millions toward a grander commonwealth and a greater civilization, 
whereby they may revolutionize the universe, perishing the microcosm in 
the limitless macrocosm and sinking this earthly segregate in the boundless, 
rushing, choral aggregation eternally E Pluribus I'ntim.

History of tbc Class of 19X1 




HE history of the Class of 1911! Noble three and twenty, 
what pen is worthy to recount thy great and glorious deeds! 
No pen is worthy, but we feel that we can not, with a clear 
conscience and in justice to our fellow men, leave unrecorded 
our most noble deeds. They have been many and great, 
and we regret that here we have space for only a few. 
In September, 1907, there were enrolled in the Freshman Class of Mill- 
saps College ninety boys and lour girls. Could there be a more perfect be- 
ginning? Then came class organization. The first officers of the Class of 
1**11 were Roscoe C. Berry, 1 'resident : Carrie Wharton, Vice-President; 
Marguerite Park. Secretary; A. B. Clark, Treasurer. Under these officers 
we achieved things remarkable and. in sooth, most astounding for a Freshman 
Class. The dignified and experienced Seniors, the haughty Juniors and even 
the wise Sophs stood in awe of such genius as we displayed in all we under- 
took; indeed, jealousy rankled in more than one ungenerous heart. 

In mental activities we always took the lead, breaking the record in Fresh- 
man Math. In the Literary Societies our genius was continually displaying 
itself before open-mouthed upper-classmen. In society at large, we acquired 
a most enviable position. In athletics, we proudly took the lead. Our foot- 
ball team, which has since been the envy of the colleges for miles around, in 
this first trial acquitted itself most gloriously, so that not only our Class 
but the College felt honored. In baseball we easily defeated the other class- 
men ami won the pennant. Thus victoriously ended our Freshman year and 
we went home to our well-deserved rest. 

But we returned — with slightly diminished numbers, we own. However, 
our ardor was not dampened by this. Sophs of 1S09! How full of victories 
for us was this vear stored! We took up our studies with renewed vig'or 
and, as wise Sophomores should, we set about to place before the coming 
generations of Freshmen an example which they would be eager and proud 
to follow. We organized early with the following officers: A. C. Anderson. 
President; C. W. Bufkin, Vice-President; .Marguerite Park, Secretary. The 
sad death of our beloved President, later in the vear, was the occasion of 



56 






greatest grief, not only to our Class. but to the College. In his death we 
sustained an inestimable loss. To till the vacancy l\. C. Berry was elected. 

As we applied ourselves, each day brought forth some fresh evidence of 
our genius. The "profs," who had been surprised at us as Freshmen, fairly 
marveled now. The Juniors and Seniors had ceased to be jealous of our 
achievements, and simply looked on in silent wonder. Again we conquered 
on the field of athletics. As the wind carrieth away the chaff, so our "in- 
vincible eleven" swept before it the other teams. None could withstand their 
onrush, neither Senior. Junior nor Freshman — all alike perished, and we 
were rewarded this time with the cup. In baseball we were alike victorious, 
defeating the others and a second time winning the pennant. No other class 
in the history of the College has accomplished this during the same year. 
Good reason had we to be proud of our record. Thus gloriously did we end 
i mr Sophonn ire rear. 

Another well-earned vacation, and in September, 1909, we came again — 
not all. for many had left our ranks. Our number had fallen to twenty-three; 
but undaunted, we organized once more, with Robert J. Bing"ham, President; 
C. F. Johnson. Vice-President; Myrtle Johnson, Secretary. 

This year we have been more than ever successful in mental fields. We 
have mastered Horace and I 'liny; we have mastered Organic Chemistry; 
we have mastered Calculus. We now feel able to cope with the world. What 
terrors has Seniordom for us now? 

Our Junior year is gone. How dear we hold it! Xext year, classmates, 
will be fraught with anxiety — too full of classes that must lie taken and 
made. This year our work has been hard; but with all there has not come 
to us that feeling of responsibility, amounting at times almost to despair. 
that we must inevitably experience next year as Seniors. Xow we must part 
for a while, and when we meet again, it will be in the long-sought "promised 
land'' of Seniordom. In spite of our efforts. O Juniors, many opportunities 
to do greater things have been lost. Realizing this, let us each profit well 
by our mistakes and make of next year a grand and glorious success. 

Id tSTORTAX.

June iRoscs 

Sweet and faint as a whispered prayer, 

The fragrant incense fills the air; 
The chill of the spring-time passes by, 

June comes with the roses and azure sky, 
The song of birds, and the laughing stream 

The sights and sounds of a summer dream 
Linger and brood over field and wood, 

And over the valleys soft and dim, 

Like the echoed sound of a far-off hymn, 

Sounds the mocker's call thro' the solitude 

Bright as the burning bush of old, 

The ash, blood-red through the thicket shines; 
And I hear the ripple of waters bold 

Blent with the murmur of the pines 

As I came thro' fields of waving corn 

I passed a garden of roses fair. 
Kissed by the rosy lips of morn, 

The brightest and sweetest were blooming there 

Oh! thoughts of love! an angel's tear, 
By Love a form and substance given; 

Lost Eden's joys still lingering here, 
To woo the erring soul to heaven. 

Your faces are bright with a thought suppressed. 
Your lips are red with the wine of truth! 

Why linger you here in a world unblessed? 
Types of lost Eden's Joy and Youth! 





Zhc TRoses' IReplv? effn Cborus) 

Nine sisters we are! when the world was young, 
And the stars of the morning together sung 
In the Garden of Eden, pure and bright, 
There blossomed a rose of spotless white. 

Pure, and white as the snow, it shone 

With a radiance borrowed from the Throne; 

Pure and white as a dream of God, 

It blossomed and bloomed on Eden's sod 

Pure and white was the Kaiseiin, 

'Till touched and soiled by the hand of sin; 

And, indistinct as the shaded lines 

That separate the colors seven, 

When bright the bow of promise shines 

Against the dark background of Heaven 

The changes were White, pure as snows, 
Then, touched by Error's deadly blight, 

To softer sadness changed the rose, 
Half losing all its lustrous white 

Pure, even yet! thro' change, thro' death, 
The lingering scent of Eden's bower; 

The subtle, delicate, sweet breath 

Of Heaven pervades the fallen flower 

Pure! tho* its colors change and dim, 

For in its heart there ever broods 
The holy dream, the thought of Him, 

Whose love the tiniest flower includes. 

Pare, even yet! oh, highest type 

Of rosehood, holy, pure and fair; 
On Calvary, when the time was ripe, 

The Rose of Sharon blossomed there!

Sophomore History 




TELL of a Class whose members have assembled from every 

town in the State, and whose abilities were ne'er surpassed. 

NSfeib In fact, the Sophomore Class may well be considered an 

f*J example of what the Juniors and Seniors would like for 

Up their past lives to have been; and, indeed, we are told that 

the Preps and Freshmen even envy us. 

Revolving such thoughts in our minds, we have determined to make for 
ourselves an illustrious record, one of which not only we ourselves, but the 
College as well, will lie justly proud. Let us look at our past lives t<> justify 
the determination. As Freshmen, we worked as one man. ever ready to do 
our best. The professors, in order to encourage us. were continually com- 
plimenting us. and seeing how admirably the plan worked, have just contin- 
ued. Despite all this, the old habit of "busting'," which belongs to every 
class, still pursued us. Simply because the Seniors had attained a higher 
degree of wisdom than we poor "Freshies," they decided to whip us. but we 
In ire it bravely. Through many a peri] have we passed and by each we were 
made stronger. 

Now we are Sophomores. We will peep into the various class-rooms. 
In "Trig." the Sophomores are so brilliant that in consideration of <>ur intel- 
ligence Professor Burton even ottered to jump from the window on his head, 
if — . In Chemistry, regardless of the difficulty which must classes have, we 
looked so wise that our professor mentioned it to the Faculty. Realizing the 
prospect for short stories and not wishing to hurf any one's feelings, it was 
decided to abandon the Collegian for this year. In the Literary Societies and 
in the Y. M. C. A. the Sophomores hold prominent positions. On the Purple 
and White and the Bobashela Staff we have had representatives for two years. 

Though we have done well in every department, yet in athletics we have 
excelled everv class, and now we are the proud possessors of the cup. Such 
playing as the Sophomores did was never seen, even on Mount Olympus. 
However, much of our success is due to our efficient coach. Dr. Kern. 

As a whole, we are a class of which the College is exceedingly proud, and 
let us hope that when we enter life as individuals we will make equally bril- 
liant records.

[N September 29th, 1909, many new men hailed from hill and 
dale to enter Millsaps College and quench their thirst for 
learning. At the sound of the chapel hell we scampered 
from our rooms off up the hill to the Alain Building, where 
devotional exercises were held. We entered the room, not 
knowing how nor where to go, but finally were seated in the 
spacious Auditorium directly in front of the "wise men." After a somewhat 
lengthy exercise, the several announcements were made, which were of value 
to the old men hut which meant very little to the Freshmen, who, of course, 
had to ask again and again where each professor was to be found. 

We found the professors and were classified. The first few days were 
spent very energetically; no one had half enough to do. and all were really 
worried about how we would spend all of our time. However, this feeling 
soon wore away and our only fear was whether each of us had time to do 
our work. The thirst for knowledge was almost forgotten by the end of the 
second week and many of us began to think of home. How pleasant would 
be a draught of water from the old spring that trickled sparkling clear from 
beneath the shade of the old beech! How we longed to sit again on the 
back porch and listen to the charm of the evening mocking-bird as she sang 
a year ago! We little thought, when surrounded by this bliss of nature, how- 
happy we really were ; and we longed to get to college where we would not 
have to work. 

But, when once the boys had learned the ways of the college man, they 
made a wonderful showing in almost every phase of college life. It is true 
that we had no football team, but this may easily be explained. There are 
a great many high schools in this State and Louisiana which have no foot- 
ball, and the new men who were versed in the game were few: however, we 
furnished several of the Varsity team. 

The basket-ball team made a better showing, but won no pronounced 
distinction. The baseball team has not had an opportunity to show the ex- 
cellent qualities which we are sure it possesses. Though the Freshman Class 
has won no honors on the athletic field, yet we are sure we will. It has been 
very conspicuous in the literary societies, and it has made a place in the his- 
tory of Millsaps College. 

Xow. boys, let's determine to be here next year. The man who drops 
out will be missed, but he will miss more than we shall; we shall be dis- 
appointed if any one fails to return. Let's all shake hands again in the Y. M. 
C. A. hall on September 30th, 1010.

<Ibc Xtterar\> Societies 




-I AT is the greatest single factor at Millsaps College in pre- 
paring students for their life work? Were we called upon 
this question, we would say without hesitation 



\ few words of explanation 



to answer 

that it is the literary societies 

will not be amiss, since possibly the societies here hold a 

higher and more valued [dace than that held by such organ- 
izations at similar institutions. 

The average student coming to college is unskilled in oratory, the art of 
debating and public speaking, and is ignorant of all forms of parliamentary 
usage. He lacks grace and poise on the floor and feels embarrassed when 
called upon to express himself before a public body. 

A one-sided man. who is nothing less than a crank, can never succeed. 
He must be well rounded, having all of his faculties equally developed. A 
man may leave his Alma Afater knowing everything that can be gotten from 
text-books, yet, unless he is able to express himself and put his knowledge 
into practical use, he is a failure. For one to be a success he must be able to 
think quickly ami concisely while on his feet. He must be able to maintain 
his mental equilibrium while being attacked by his opponents and to think 
and act quickly on the spur of the moment. 

A knowledge of parliamentary rules and usages is invaluable. The soci- 
eties offer unusual advantages for attaining this knowledge. The same par- 
liamentary rules are used as those in the United States Congress and the 
members are thoroughly drilled and acquainted with all the technical points. 
Perhaps the most valuable course outside of that laid down in the curricu- 
lum is the four years' course in college politics which the societies offer. Here 
it is that the embryo governors and senators first learn the shufflings of the 
political cards. Politics is made reality and the experience thus gained fits 
a student for the great political problems peculiar to either Church or State. 
To meet these needs, the literary societies were organized. 

Of these organizations we have four. The first to be organized was the 
Galloway, named after that illustrious divine and statesman, Charles Betts 
Galloway. The Society showed its determination ever to follow the example 



of this good and great man by wisely choosing as its motto, "Know Thy 
Opportunity." 

This Society prospered and soon became a great factor in college life. At 
one time she held the record of having won more medals for the same length 
of time than any other society in the South. Two of her loyal sons took both 
the M. I. O. A. medals and the Southern Intercollegiate honors. 

The next society to be organized was the Lamar, named in memory of 
our own Lamar, whose name is a synonym for goodness and greatness. 
Along with her sister society, the Lamar throve rapidly, holding aloft on 
her banner the motto, "Nulla palma sine labore." 

For the last five years she has sent representatives to the M. I. O. A. 
contest and her members have always won their share of the College honors. 

The students in the Preparatory Department, seeing the good to be 
derived from societies and feeling some embarrassment at taking part in the 
two societies composed of older students, determined to organize a society 
composed wholly of "preps." The organization was promptly effected and it 
was named in honor of the brilliant Prentiss. 

From the beginning, much interest has been manifested in its workings 
and it has done much to create a live interest in speaking and debating. 
Another result of it has been the offering of a gold medal at Commencement 
to the best speaker in the preparatory classes. 

The Co-eds., ever alive to their own interest as well as to the welfare of 
the College, felt the need of some organization whereby they might train 
themselves in declaiming, education and in literary research. As a result, 
the Minnehaha Society was organized. Meeting weekly, with every Co-ed. 
as a member, the Society is doing a great work. The Secretary prepares an 
excellent program for each meeting, and marked progress is being made.

INTERMEZZO 



In Arcadie the pipes o' Pan sound soft, and clear, and low, 
In Arcadie the sunlight shines and gentle breezes blow, 
And ringing, singing down the glades there comes the Dryad's cal 
With "tirra, lirra" through the trees. Ah! you have heard it all. 

And now you are in Arcadie, nay, never look around, 

For he will wake who looks behind, 

And he who wakes will never find 
The groves again of Arcadie. (Hush! 't is a magic sound.) 

In Arcadie the gods are good and Fate is very fair. 
Tomorrow as Today shall be while through the flowers ye fare; 
And never Yesterday shall smile, and point, and smile again — 
The Lotus Flower blossoms there, whereby to banish pain. 

So rest you soft in Arcadie (see, the bright river runs 

So fast away), and watch the glow 

Of moons of opal, clouds of snow, 
And blazing suns (in Arcadie there are no setting suns). 

Straight runs the road to Arcadie, ah! straight, and very long. 
One can not see the groves of Pan, nor hear the Dryad's song. 
One is so tired, and one must rest. Here blooms no Lotus Flower, 
And one remembers Arcadie — Arcadie for an hour. 

I'm glad you are in Arcadie. (Nay, do not look at Care, 

But watch the water's rippling waves 

And hear old Pan play merry staves), 
I'm glad you are in Arcadie. (God keep you happy there.) 

Ichabod Crane.

Gbc professor, tbe (Sirl ano tbc Grout 




T was August. The warm summer sun beat down caressingly 
upon the little hostelry perched high on the side of the moun- 
tain, half hidden in the trees. The Inn was an old-time, two- 
story building, surrounded on all sides by a spacious gallery 
where the guests were wont to assemble and enjoy the ex- 
hilarating air and superb scenery. In the front of the Inn, 
though farther down the valley, dashed a sparkling little rock-strewn stream 
of some twenty feet in width. Behind, the mountain rose sheer three hun- 
dred feet, ending in a hopeless tangle of sandstone and brambles. In the val- 
ley below, but a little distance above the hotel, was the pool, pure, cold and 
deep, a noble home for a noble fish. 

Into this angler's heaven, by purest chance, wandered Gordon Campbell, 
our hero. Gordon was a true representative of the old South, well fixed in 
this world's goods and, above all, a master angler, lie received a cordial 
handshake from old Craighead, the proprietor, and having been introduced 
to those sitting on the porch, was soon made to feel perfectly at home. After 
a hasty bath and a change of linen, he rejoined the group on the veranda. 
There he entered into a very interesting fish talk with one of his new-found 
friends, a certain Colonel Warren, a rheumatic, formerly a veritable Prince 
of Anglers. 

When supper was over, the Colonel introduced Gordon to his daughter, 
and — Bingo ! he was in love. After the first shock was over, all was plain 
sailing; they swapped experiences, talked of each other and the hotel. When 
lie had completely won her confidence, she told him that she was in 
great trouble. Her father had used every possible means to catch a certain 
old trout which had for years defied the utmost endeavors of every one, and 
one night when the crowd was a trifle full, some one jocosely asked the Col- 
onel what he would give for the fish. To which banter the Colonel replied 
that he would give that which he prized more than anything on earth. This 
they naturally took to mean his daughter, and from that time on old Speckle 
had been constantly besieged by eager fishermen, some infatuated by her 
own personal charms, and others by the Colonel's bank account. 

The next morning Gordon set out for the pool. When he arrived there 
he saw a clerical-looking old gentleman sitting gingerly on a rock, holding 
in one hand an old cane pole, while in the other he held a book which he was 
perusing eagerly. Gordon bade him good-morning, and receiving an indiffer- 
ent reply, calmly ignored him. and proceeded to unpack his tackle. He care- 



90 



fully selected a fly and prepared to east. A single twist of the wrist, a low 
whirr of the reel, and the fly sailed clean and true. One beautiful cast after 
another, but all to no avail ; then he began to change his flies until all were 
gone. He tried a grasshopper and, in fact, every device and trick known to 
anglers, but old Speckle would not be coaxed. Just as he left, however, as 
if in disdain, the great fish rose, gracefully cleared the water, a huge animate 
flash against a deep emerald background. Me stood for a minute enthralled, 
marveling, but then his wonder changed to deep heartfelt determination as 
he slowly wended his way homeward. 

Two weeks passed by ; he visited the pool daily, but was not so fortunate 
as even to see his Majesty. Gordon was in desperation, the girl in tears. He 
proposed elopement, but she would not consent. Then he appealed to her 
father's common sense, and she to his affections, but all to no avail, as it 
seemed that the Colonel would not break his word of honor. 

One morning, after he had been casting steadily for several hours, he 
decided that he had enough of it all; that the old man was a crank, and the 
girl a flirt. As he was reeling in his line it caught on a floating twig and he 
gave it a vicious jerk. It broke loose and struck him a stinging blow in the 
face. Infuriated, he snapped the leader in two and hurled the flv with all of 
his might into the middle of the pool. He did not know that after he left the 
big fish rose and took his fly, or that the old Professor, sitting on the bank, 
had observed it and made this great discovery — that old Speckle would not 
take a fly which was attached to a visible line. It was the work of a few- 
moments to hollow out a cork and fill it with several feet of heavy silk line. 
Then he fastened one end firmly to the cork, the other to the fly, which hung 
on the side of the cork as if attempting to climb it. lie pushed the cork out 
into the pond and waited. It worked like a charm ; the big fish rose, struck 
it and disappeared, trailing the line. He reached for the cork with his pole, 
but it was jerked rudely out of his reach and whirled frantically in every di- 
rection in the pool. He then ran to the hotel for help. 

Gordon, in the meantime, was walking disconsolately homeward. He had 
made up his mind to leave that very night and forget it all, and doubtless he 
would have done so had he not seen Old "Foureyes" rushing franticallv 
through the woods. His suspicions were aroused and he hastened back to the 
pool. There, in the middle, was the cork, lashing the water as if infested by 
some demon. He took in the situation at a glance and dived into the pool, 
quickly gained the cork, and swimming, towed his prize to the bank. Twenty 
minutes later, he was the happiest man in nineteen states. Motto : A little 
swimming is better than great learning.

J^oung flDcn's Christian association 




IE most potent factor in the spiritual life at College is the 
Young- Men's Christian Association. 

The supreme object of our Association is to unite all stu- 
dents who desire to strengthen the spiritual life and influence 
of the College ; to promote growth in Christian character, 
and fellowship in aggressive Christian work; to train its 
members for Christian service, and to lead them to devote their lives to Jesus 
Christ where they may accomplish the most for the kingdom of God. 

( )ne of our greatest advantages this year is that we had the State Bible 
Study Institute here in our own hall at the beginning of the session. This 
Institute was composed of delegates from all the colleges of the State and 
some few from the most prominent high schools ; in addition to these 
there were the strongest leaders in Southern V. M. C. A. work. The new 
inspiration received from this Convention, together with the enthusiasm and 
training that our delegates, D. R. \Yasson and R. E. Steen, received at the 
International Student Volunteer Convention, at Rochester, Xew York, has 
made our Association capable of doing a greater work in Bible and Mission 
Study than it has ever before done. 

The crowning beauty of the Association is that it has a care for the whole 
man — mental, physical and spiritual. Where the work counts for most, how- 
ever, is in the moral culture and uplift. In the bi-weekly devotional meetings 
the speakers discuss such practical questions as will not fail to bear directly 
or indirectly on the character of each man present. From a systematic study 
of the Bible and a world of missions we learn of the principles of Christianity 
and our obligation to the heathen. Excellent opportunities are afforded 
throughout the whole session for personal work, but, during the spring cam- 
paign, special efforts are made to deepen the spiritual life and lead the un- 
saved to Christ. 

Thus the Y. M. C. A. attempts to reach every man in College, no matter 
how indifferent he may be toward religion. Under the capable leaders that 
we have, we can not and will not fail.

£be Eve of St. IDalcntinc 




"St. Agues' Ere — Ah, bitter chill it was!" 

i OWARD the close of the afternoon of February 13th, Eliza- 
beth Anne stood at an upper window in one of the line of 
comfortable-looking, vine-clad houses known to the univer- 
sity students as Professors' Row, and peered out upon the 
winter landscape. Through the bare trees of the campus she 
could discern the huge hulk of Academic Hall, with its two 
tall towers half hidden by the swirling snowrlakes. which eddied around them 
at the will of the wind. For a moment she tried to see the hands upon the 
clock in the nearest tower, hut the storm proved too dense. "Surely the 
weather man has been disappointed in love," she reflected. A sudden gust of 
wind, stronger than usual, whirled the snowflakes in wild confusion ; the win- 
dow rattled, and the ivy seemed to shiver and shrink closer to the protecting 
wall of the house. "It looks more like St. Nicholas's weather than St. Val- 
entine's, and as for poor little Cupid — ugh ! it makes one fairly shiver even 
tn think of his having to he out in such weather as this." 

As she turned from the window her eye was caught by a glow of color on 
the opposite side of the rapidly darkening room. She took the roses up one 
I>v one, and sinking with her fragrant armful into an easy chair before the 
fire, was soon lost in contemplation of their exquisite coloring, the dusky red 
of which blended well with her own clear, dark complexion. From the roses 
her thoughts turned to their sender, and she remembered her indefinite en- 
gagement with him for the evening and wondered to what extent his gift 
might be considered the forerunner of a proposal. Her conclusion, born of 
an experience that included not only many Cupid's days, but also many Com- 
mencements and rare nights in June, was that all the omens indicated this 
night as the fateful time — at any rate she would be gowned to suit the occa- 
sion should it arise. Several hours later, at the sound of the bell, there was 
a rustle from above as of wings, and Elizabeth Anne, enveloped in a diaph- 
anous cloud of silk and white chiffon, a couple of roses at her belt, floated 
down the wide stairway. 

"I'm so glad you've come early." she said, as she opened the door. As the 



100 



visitor came into the hall shaking the snow from a long, heavy overcoat, she 
started back involuntarily. 

"You !" 

"Yes, me," lie answered, coming' forward smiling and with outstretched 
hand. "How are you?" He hung his hat and coat on the rack and, like one 
familiar with his surroundings, turned toward the parlor. 

"This is not a very cheerful reception 1 am giving you," she said as she 
reached up to turn on the light. "Everybody has gone to the lecture, and I 
alone am left to — to do the duties of host," she concluded hurriedly. 

"1 have no fault to find with the reception, provided von do not change 
it by turning on the light. The firelight and the light from the hall will do, 
won't they? But why are you not at the lecture, too?" 

"Oh, it's too cold for me," she answered lightly, "and besides, I'd rather 
stay here and talk to you." 

"Very kind of you. I'm sure, but I am inclined to doubt — " 

"Now render an account of yourself," she interrupted. "Ulysses has re- 
turned from his four years' wandering, and 1 wonder what marvelous adven- 
tures he has passed through, what Circes' allurements he has withstood, and 
whether he has as yet listened to some siren's voice?" 

"And does he return to find Penelope perplexed with many suitors as of 
yore ?" 

"Looks like it, doesn't it?" she replied, giving a comprehensive glance over 
the empty twilight room. "But don't talk about me; tell me about yourself. 
Where did you come from and what did you come for?" 

"Why, to see you, of course." 

Her surprise and pleasure at seeing him had not quite crowded from Eliz- 
abeth Anne's mind her thoughts of the afternoon, and this, together with the 
interest that a woman always takes in a man who has once proposed to her, 
may have caused her to suspect a hidden meaning in what had in reality been 
merely a jesting answer. A troubled look came into her face, and if we cen- 
sure her for allowing the 'moth and candle idea to Hit through her mind, we 
must at least give her the credit of a sincere resolve to save the moth a second 
singeing. She moved slightly and repeated with more insistence than the 
question seemed to require, 

"But sure enough, what did you come for?" 

Conant guessed the meaning of her nervous movement and of the impa- 
tience in her question. His friends believed that he had forgot his college 
love affair with the President's daughter, and he intended that Elizabeth Anne 
should believe it also — there was no use in making his visit unpleasant to both 
of them. As for himself, he had learned to accept his fate with philosophic 

1(11 



good-nature. There would at least he no harm in tantalizing her a bit, and 
so he replied with a serious smile, 

"I really came to see you." 

The remark did not demand an answer and she made none. Though she 
had heard from him only at long intervals since his graduation, she had often 
wondered in a vague way just why she had refused him. Perhaps the blame 
should have been laid upon her environment, the kaleidoscopic change of col- 
lege life, and the continual shifting of friendships which the return of each 
session had brought; perhaps some other Senior, now forgotten, had occupied 
more of her thoughts at that particular time; perhaps she had thought he had 
not meant it; or perhaps, in the suddenness and excitement of her first pro- 
posal, she had not really known her own heart. It was to this last explanation 
that she usually returned, if not with genuine regret, at least with something 
very near akin ti i it. 

The shadows of old memories darkened her eyes and cast their spell over 
her, carrying her back into the days when, hand in hand, the best of friends 
and capital comrades, they had romped through the Freshman year, and so 
on through all the varying light and shade of their college days, until one 
quiet June night. She could still hear the faint notes of the violins, softened 
1>\ the distance, as they wailed out the Miserere of // Trovatore ; and she re- 
membered that the voices of the promenaders had reached her as a whispered 
hum mingled with snatches of gay laughter from some mystic fairy-land all 
aglow with many-colored lights. I lis faltering attempts to lead up to the sub- 
ject, at first misunderstood; her frightened endeavor to prevent the confes- 
sion ; and then the sudden rush of his broken sentences and low, tense voice ; 
the few words of explanation; the pause; and then the parting, "always to be 
good friends," — all the details of her first proposal came before her. and lost 
in reverie, she was glad without knowing why. 

Conant had been indulging in reveries too, and the past, intensified into 
"what might have been" by the present comfortable scene, came strongly be- 
fore him. Apparently, he was watching with idle interest two small twigs, 
which after blazing merrily up had sparkled out their short existence, and 
over whose glowing core a dull, ashen gray was now slowly creeping. As the 
twigs crumbled he roused himself and added apologetically. 

"The heat of an open fire is about the nearest thing 1 know to the 'poppied 
warmth' of sleep. I remember that it used to affect me somewhat similarly 
when 1 was here during our college days; at any rate, we often didn't have 
much to say." 

"Yes," she replied mechanically. "When does your train leave?" In her 
haste to turn the conversation as far as possible from their former friendship 

liii 



she had not noticed until too late the seeming discourtesy in her question. 

The man smiled quizzically at her and started to reply, but was interrupted 
by her hurried apology. 

Her blushes deepened with her confusion, and in her eagerness to explain 
her mistake the slight formality of her bearing- toward him, which had been 
momently becoming more difficult to maintain, dissolved as if it had been a 
cloud. She felt in an indefinite way that she owed him amends for her un- 
gracious remark, and this seemed to her to lie the easiest way to make them — 
so easy, in fact, that she did not stop to debate the question, but drifted almost 
without volition back to their old-time relation, and took up their friendship 
as easily as if the four intervening years had not been. 

In the midst of her explanations, the university clock with storm-muffled 
strokes told the hour of eight. The bell seemed a long way off. and both of 
them ceased talking and leaned slightly forward, listening intently and softly 
counting each stroke under their breath as the sound came dully through the 
wind and snow. There was a slight pause after the last stroke. 

"Eight," he said, straightening up; "and since the amendment to your 
previous question, one more hour of grace. But you," he continued, resu- 
ming the conversation at the point where it had ceased, "do you usually array 
yourself in silks and satins upon the mere probability of a chance caller, and 
on such a night as this? I dare not hope that my good fair}' gave you thoughts 
of me and wdiispered that I might come. My good fairy has left me — if, in- 
deed, I ever had one. Had I not been so deeply concerned with my own pleas- 
ure, past experience would have warned me ere this that you are expecting 
another caller here tonight. Upon whom, may 1 ask, has my worthy mantle 
fallen, and when may we expect his arrival?" 

He had expected a playful reproof, or at least a protest, but she merely 
replied, 

"I have no definite engagement for tonight and — and 1 hope that there 
will be no callers." 

"Thank you, so do I. But I don't deserve any such good fortune — do you 
know that this is St. Valentine's Eve?" 

"Yes." A faint wave of color swept over her face as she remembered the 
roses in the corner of the room. 

"Who is he, Lizbeth? I am interested in him." 

"1 don't believe he exists, Dick." she said slowly. 

"Of course not ! And I suppose if it were any other person than me to 
whom you were talking, you would maintain that he never did exist." He 
paused a moment, but she gave no sign of annoyance. The silence intensified 

103 



the roar oi the storm outside. Listening to it, he quoted mure to himself than 
to her: 

"Never on such a night have lovers met, 
* the frost-wind blows 

Like Line's alarum pattering the sharp sleet 
Against the window-panes; St. Valentine's moon hath set!" 

"Valentine's Day seems to be <>n your mind." 

"No; just a hit of 'The Eve of St. Agnes' that has been running in my 
head all daw Hut perhaps it's on your mind, too; didn't he send you any 
valentine?" 

"Neither did you," she returned, and wondered at the impulse which made 
her ashamed to confess the roses which she was wearing. 

"Why, I have brought myself." he laughed. "Will you accept the gift?" 

"Yes," she responded simply. 

Hitherto it had been with him the true word which is spoken in jest, and 
he had taken a grim pleasure in the double entendre. Something in her reply, 
perhaps the tone of her voice, reminded him that two might play at the same 
game. Yet he hardly dared to hope; still less to reason, for that would hut 
emphasize his folly, lie looked at her eagerly, wistfully, and if she had had 
any lingering doubt as to the continuance ol his love for her it vanished in 
the moment. With a woman's intuition in matters of the heart, she saw, even 
before he himself was fully aware of it. what was coming, and instinctively 
assumed the defensive. 

lie rose from the chair and bent over her. She shrank hack and put out 
her hand as if in defense. "No, Lick — no, not vet." For in Dick's eves there 
shone the look of the castaway who after long and weary watching catches 
the first glimpse of a sail afar oft'. There was no sound in all the house save 
the crackling of the oak logs in the fireplace; a sudden gust rattled the win- 
dows fiercely and drove the snowtlakes past the house in a hurrying cloud.. 
Both of them glanced involuntarily toward the window and thought of the 
storm outside. 

"Sudden a thought came like a full-blown rose. 
Flushing his brow, and in his pained heart 
.Made purple riot." 

From out of Keats's love storv of "ages long ago" there came before him 
the image of "young Porphyro with heart on fire for Madeline." 
"J lark! 'tis an elfin storm from faery land. 
Of haggard seeming, hut a boon indeed: 



104 



Let us away, my love, with happy speed; 
There arc no ears to hear nor eyes to see." 

'The key turns, and the door upon its hinges groans," 

'And they are gone — 

These lovers tied away into the storm."

SIGMA UPSILON 



Gbe IkiMkat Club 




lEALIZING the man} - benefits to be gained from literary fel- 
lowship and wishing to awaken in the College an enthusiastic 
interest in literary aims and ideals, Dr. A. A. Kern, in No- 
vember, 1909, formed the Kit-Kat Club, which had for its 
object the promotion of these ends. The Club soon saw that 
affiliation with Sigma Upsilon, whose ideals were similar to 
their own, would not only give them national prestige but would greatly aid 
them in carrying out their plans. They therefore petitioned the General Coun- 
cil of Sigma Upsilon for a charter, which was granted them in February, 1910; 
its reception, thanks to the hospitality of Dr. G. D. Davidson, was duly cele- 
brated at the Royal Falstaff Cafe on the evening of February 25th. 

Sigma Upsilon was founded at the University of the South in 1906, and 
from the beginning has made its requirements for admission so strict that 
membership therein is universally regarded as a much-coveted honor. The 
Millsaps chapter takes its name from a literary club of the age of Queen Anne 
which met at the tavern of Christopher Kat — whence its name — and which 
numbered among its members Addison, Steele, Congreve, Dryden, Pope, and 
many another eighteenth-century writer. By an odd coincidence the Kit-Kat 
Club, whose membership was limited to seven, formed the seventh chapter of 
Sigma Upsilon. Thus far its success in stimulating literary appreciation and 
endeavor and in furthering literal"} - comradeship has been remarkable and 
augurs well for the future influence of the Club upon the literary life at 
Millsaps.

ALMA MATER MILLSAPS 

Air, "My Bonnie" 

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. 

CHORUS 
Millsaps, Millsaps, 

Millsaps College for me, for me, 
Millsaps, Millsaps, 

Millsaps College for me. 

Her halls, where our memories linger, 
The friendships there made long ago, 

The purple and white of her banner 
Are cherished wherever we go. 

And when in the years of the future 
Fond memory turns to the past, 

The days that we spent at old Millsaps 
Will yet be the brightest at last. 

MILLSAPS 

Alma mater, dear old Millsaps, 

Loyal sons are we ; 
Our fond hearts are thine alone 

And evermore shall be. 

Proud art thou in classic beauty 

Of thy noble past, 
With thy watchwords, Honor, Duty, 

Thy high fame shall last. 

Ever swiftly and more swiftly 

Time goes fleeting by, 
Still abides our love for Millsaps, 

It can never die.

athletics 




nIE present session has been a highly successful one from an 
athletic view-point. Much of this success is due to Professor 
S. G. Noble, who lias labored with untiring energy for high- 
class, spirited athletics at Millsaps. It has been due to him 
that the schedules have been posted on time, that the various 
managers have done their work properly, and that the affairs 
of the Athletic Association have been conducted on a firm and business-like 
basis. It was also through the efforts of Professor Noble that Millsaps has 
been allowed to participate in the intercollegiate track meet at the State Ora- 
torical Contest. 

At the opening of the football season the Freshman and Junior Classes 
failed to put teams in the field, thus leaving the Seniors, the Sophs and the 
Preps to contest fur the cup. Professor Noble took charge of his Preps early 
in the year, and began to explain to them that a football was an inflated oval, 
that it would not bite, and that they need not be afraid of breaking it by fall- 
ing on it. Since Dr. Kern's two-time champions had disbanded, he was in- 
duced to coach the Sophomores, who were anxious to atone for their igno- 
minious record of '08. The Seniors were confident of victory, but merely "for 
the looks of the thing" they invited Professor Burton to coach them; and in 
a very few afternoons the "new-professor" informed them in unmistakable 
language that they did not know the rudiments of the game and that if they 
expected to make a showing in the race worthy of their name and Class, they 
would be compelled to show a marked improvement. The truth of this proph- 
ecy was afterwards demonstrated. 

In the first game it was seen that the Sophs, of whom very little had been 
expected, were going to finish strong, and it was freely predicted that they 
would have to be reckoned with before the close of the season. The prediction 
gradually became a fact with each succeeding game, and when the schedule 
was completed the cup was awarded to the team of '12, who had gone through 
the season without a single defeat. Varsity material was very plentiful, and 
the committee could have selected two Varsity teams of almost equal strength. 
The team which was selected is a representative one and with proper coach- 



140 



ing could hold its own with the best. The games were played on the new 
athletic field and were, without an exception, well attended. It would be no 
exaggeration to say that the past football season was the most successful since 
class games were instituted at Millsaps. 

After a lapse of two years, interclass basket-ball was resumed and for the 
first time every class was represented by a team. The schedule was short 
enough and the games were close enough to keep interest and enthusiasm 
keyed up to the highest pitch. The Preps, by hard practice and consistent 
work, made the highest percentage and won the pennant. Professor Swartz 
has put new life into tennis since he took charge of the club. There are more 
tennis players in college now, and more interest is taken in the game, than at 
any previous time in our history. In baseball the Freshman Class has an 
abundance of first-class material and at present promises to be the favorite 
in the contest for the class championship. Preparations arc also being made 
for Field Day, and Professor Noble is also hard at work upon the candidates 
for track honors both here and at the M. I. O. A. contest. 

By way of conclusion, a word of praise should be accorded Professor 
Noble, Professor Burton and Dr. Kern for the enthusiasm and interest with 
which they have helped to make this a successful year in athletics. The Ath- 
letic Association and the entire student body are very grateful to them for 
their work. Ma}' future teams secure as successful coaches!

BUNTANG 



Did you ever see a "Fessor" ride a jack? 
Did you ever see a jaybird eat a tack ? 
Did you ever ? — no, you never, 
For it really couldn't be, don't you see ? 

Did you ever see a co-ed smoke a pipe ? 
Did you ever see an educated snipe ? 
Did you ever? — No, you never, 
For it really couldn't be, don't you see ? 



Did you ever see a free special exam ? 
Did you ever see an oyster bite a ham ? 
Did you ever ? No, you never, 
For it really couldn't he, don't you see? 

Did you ever see an angel eating hay? 
Did you ever see a lover of T A? 
Did you ever?— no, you never, 
For it really couldn't be, don't you see?

WINCHESTER 




.22 CALIBER AUTOMATIC RIFLE 

This wonderful little rifle is in a class by itself for pleasure and sport. After 
loading it all that it is necessary to do to shoot ten times is to pull the trigger 
for each shot, as the recoil of the exploded cartridge operates the repeating 
mechanism. The use of this rifle develops accuracy of aim when shooting 
rapidly, an accomplishment all hunters strive for. For city, country or camp 
the .22 Automatic is very handy. To fully appreciate it you should shoot it.
