Robert Scott Ricketts 

An Appreciation. 

If Millsaps men are asked to name one man m whom there is no guile, 
instinctively they turn to Professor Ricketts. Their confidence in him is as 
steadfast as the Rock of Ages. He inspires the love and veneration of them 
all. It has not been his lot to play a spectacular part in life, but rather to 
pursue the even tenor of his \va,y, dropping here and there a kindly word, 
giving alms his left hand knew not of, and pouring oil upon the troubled 
waters. He is the Nestor of the college community. His sage advice dis- 
perses doubt, solves perplexing problems, and lifts the burden from the 
troubled spirit. He is the soul of honor; his feelings are delicate yet virile; 
his every action, grace itself; . . 

"His ready speech flows free and fair 

In phrase of gentlest courtesy." > ' 

He does not belong to this strenuous generation, but, still alive to the spirit of 
the age, his sound judgment, clear vision, and broad sympathy have acted as 
a ballast to progressive movement. The saintly life of such a man is Christi- 
anity's own excuse for being.

Senior Class History 

The session of 1909-10 was a memorable one for MiUsaps College, for it was m 
tfiat year that the present stately and learned seniors entered the college as unsophisticated 
but ambitious freshmen. Other years had seen other freshman classes enter, but never 
had a class quite so well merited the name "Freshman" as that one did in the fall of 
1909. It was so "fresh" that it was verdant; it was quite "mannish," too, for out of a 
membership of 44 there was but one solitary co-ed. 

Nothing daunted, however, by our verdancy nor by the dim and distant prospect 
of our "dip" down those four years of effort and toil ahead of us (which seems in 
reality to be centuries), we set out resolutely to cut our way through the mists of dark- 
ness which our "profs" told us enveloped us. Some soon fell victims to the snares of 
Euclid and Empedocles; others, thoroughly affrighted by the sombre and distressing 
melancholy of Virgil, gave up the battle early ; while still others, though lasting a some- 
what longer time, finally perished in the din of battle. When the fight was over we 
found that we had suffered heavy loss in killed and wounded, some being in fact so badly 
mangled that, though on horseback, they were with difficulty saved from the final 
carnage. 

It was not, however, till the next session opened that the extent of the slaughter of 
our forces was fully realized. Out of the 43 only 26 young men had survived. The 
one co-ed had, however, fought so valiantly that four others had enlisted as her comrades 
in the fight. This year we laughed at the terrors of the preceding year, and even snapped 
our fingers in the face of the monster "T. A." We began to look around for something 
really worthy of our steel and for other worlds to conquer. We found them. In oratory 
two of our members began to give unmistakable evidence that the days of Demosthenes 
and of Webster were soon to return to earth again. In athletics we beat the "Invincibles" 
and made them bite the dust in shameful rout. So that the end of the year found us 
altogether satisfied with ourselves and complacently happy in the thought that we had 
made the term "Sophomore," ordinarily one of reproach, one of honor and renown. 

As juniors we exceeded in our achievements even the high hopes which our past 
brilliant record justified our friends (and ourselves) in cherishing for us. In the class 
room our work was uniformly excellent and satisfactory (to ourselves) ; in athletics 
"Kirk" was declared the best all-round man and Boswell brought the year to a close in 
a blaze of glory by winning the Chautauqua medal in the summer of 1912. 

And now the end of the battle is drawing nigh! The mists are nearly all dispelled! 
The victory is nearly won! We are dignified and superior seniors. Life is staring at 
us and we are blinking at life; aye, we are even now taking part in the serious affairs of 
the nation! We elected Wilson last fall and celebrated our triumph in dutiful and 
proper style. We shall soon bid farewell to "dear old Millsaps" and go out into the 
world to win fame and fortune. To those we leave behind us we give this word at 
parting. To the faculty: May the succeeding classes which come and go bear away 
with them the same love and affection for you which we cherish in our hearts. To the 
student body: Walk diligently in our footsteps and you shall yourself some day arrive 
at a like glorious achievement. HISTORIAN.

Senior Prophecy 

"A glass prospective wherein men might see 
What so their thoughts or hearts desire could wish." 

It was a cold winter evenmg, and I felt rather lonely as I sat before the huge old- 
fashioned fireplace, resting after a busy day. That day, in rummaging among some 
papers and books, the gleanings of former years, I had run across an old diary, and I said 
to myself, "It has been 19, no 20 years since we left Millsaps. Our class is scattered 
far and wide now, I suppose. How I wish I knew what each one has been doing today!" 

I closed my eyes and memories of those happy college days came thick and fast. 

How long I sat there, I do not know, but all at once I was startled by the sound 
of a slight e.xplosion. The fireplace was filled with smoke. As it cleared away I beheld, 
standing in the shadow of the tall andirons a little grey figure, the color of the ashes, 
topped by a red turban-like cap, as red as the last fork of flame that flickered behind 
the logs. In his hand he held a globular crystal almost as big as his head, and advanc- 
ing towards me he placed it close to my eyes. 

"The powers of the mystic world have granted your last wish. Look, and you 
shall see what each of your classmates is doing. I will explain what you do not under- 
stand." 

Too much astonished for utterance, I gazed into the crystal. At fust it seemed 
merely a cloudy ball: then I distinguished a great throng of people. In a moment I 
recognized the place as the Louvre. The people seemed to be gazing intently at a great 
canvas, which was guarded by eight or ten attendants and fenced in by a heavy railing. 
In spite of these precautions many persons pressed nearer to get a better view of it. 

"But what IS this?" I asked. 

"It is Rosa Bonheur Howard's latest picture. In the 20 years, she has made for 
herself a name which is even greater than that of the original Rosa Bonheur. Thousands 
of people come daily to see her work, and she has been offered a fortune for this 
painting." 

After the lines of the picture had faded completely away, the dwarf said, "You 
will next see the interior of a private car, in which the president of the road is traveling." 
I looked and saw a grey haired man seated by the car window, intently studying some 
important looking papers. I was still trying to place him when I was told that it was 
F. H. McGee, trying to devise some scheme for connecting his two great systems, the 
I. C. U. R. and the U. C. I. B. "He long ago left the ministry, disgusted with the 
smallness of the salary, and has risen from a mail clerk to his present position." 

The scene disappeared and another came into view. It showed a great circus tent 
crowded with people. Occupying all three rings was a trapeze of prodigious size. Then 
from one side of the tent I saw an Apollo-like figure, clad in pink, flash across the tent 
and up the trapeze. So rapidly were his leaps, so swanlike his swoops, and so marvelous 
the ability of his jumps that I did not see his face till he paused at the apex of the struc- 
ture, where he balanced lightly on one toe and kissed his hand to the audience. Then, 
to my horror, I beheld the features, rouged and radiant, of J. D. Wroten. 

27 



riie crystal changed ancJ I saw a great drawing-room, in the center of which were 
two striking figures. A tall lady dressed in green was fanning herself in an agitated, 
fluttering manner. At her feet knelt a portly person clad in clerical garb. By the cut 
of his coat, the baldness of his head and the precision with which his glasses seemed to 
have settled upon his pudgy nose, I knew him to be no less than a bishop. One fat hand 
was passionately extended over his heart, the other extended beseechingly in the direction 
of the lady. 

Can this be G. H. Moore? Is it possible that he is proposing? 

"It is he — and this will make his seventh." 

I next beheld a brilliantly lighted banquet hall. About a long table some 50 men 
and women in full evening dress were sitting. At the head of the table, performing the 
duties of toastmaster, was a tall, slender figure, arrayed in ruffled pink waistcoat, knee 
trousers and green hose — a costume which has lately been adopted by the ultra-society 
set of New ^ ork. The dwarf explained: "J. B. Honeycutt was left a fortune by an 
old woman he befriended in his youth. He has entered society and acquired the repu- 
tation of being the most fashionably dressed man, the most graceful dancer and the most 
brilliant talker of his time." 

The picture vanished, and I found myself gazing upon a boundless expanse of sea 
and sky. In the distance was a vessel, which in a moment I recognized as one of our 
largest men of war. As it came closer my attention was attracted to an officer, who with 
a melancholy air was leaning over the rail. I saw that it was Herbert Lester, unchanged 
save for a drooping blond moustache and an air of pensive sadness. The dwarf inter- 
posed, "Notice the deep flush that steals over his face as he looks down into the waters? 
He is thinking of her. Early in his life he was jilted by a maiden whose eyes were just 
the color of the water where ihe ship rolls back the spray and shows the liquid blue 
beneath. He has entered the navy because he finds consolation in looking into the water 
— dreaming that he is once more looking into her eyes." 

As the new picture formed I saw a great theater filled with people. On the stage, 
bowing and sm.iling, was a tall aesthetic singer whom I lecognized as S. B. Lampton. 

"This," said the dwarf, "is the very same singer whom you have so often heard on 
your own Victrola. ^ ou little knew it was your classmate, for he has assumed the name 
of Belamowski, and from all the vs-orld he hides his real identity." 

The scene changed again and I found myself transported to a handsomely fur- 
nished office. Seated at a mahogany desk was a small man with a jet black moustache, 
which curled up at the ends with almost unreal precision. His face was heavily lined 
with wrinkles, but I had no difficulty in recognizing Frank Scott. TTiere was a fierce 
little air about him as he slammed some of his papers on the desk and stared into space 
as if worried about something. I never had known anything to worry this carefree youth- 
so inquired the cause of his present solemnity. To this the dwarf answered: "Although 
he has risen to be the president of a large bank, he is sorely tried by home affairs. This 
is the fifteenth year that he has been united to a shrew, and despairing of ever taming 
her, he often wishes he had married the love of his college days." 

The next was indeed a dazzling scene. I found myself blinking as I looked upon 

28 



a vast ice field that sparkled in the sun. In the center was a large pole with the letter S 
carved upon it. While I was looking a man came around from the other side of the pole. 
He was so completely enveloped in a cap and coat of fur that I could see only the tip 
of his nose, blue with cold. In my perplexity I turned to the dwarf for light. 

"This," said he, "is Captain Ray, the explorer, who has just discovered the one 
and only real and original South Pole. He proposes to carry to the world a conclusive 
proof of the fact." 

I sat expectantly waiting for the first glimmer of the new vision. Nothing appeared 
— only the vacuity of the pellucent sphere. My patience was almost exhausted when I 
found myself looking into a dark forest. Then I beheld a man wrapped in skins of wild 
animals, issuing from the mouth of a lew cave. By the light of the torch, which he bore 
in one hand, he resembled a beast of the forest rather than a civilized man; for his face 
and bare arms were tanned, and his hair and beard were long and matted. He ad- 
vanced slowly to an immense pine tree. Placing his torch upon a flat stone, he seated 
himself on the ground. At the same time he extended his arms above his head until the 
palms of his hands rested on the trunk of the tree. I turned to the creature beside me for 
an explanation. 

"This is Jean Morse. Years ago he fled from the haunts of men, seeking peace 
in nature. He lives on v.hat food the field and forest provide and spends his clays in 
meditating a new philosophy. He is sitting m that position in order to get his soul in 
harmony with the currents of the earth." 

Next appeared a large room, bare save for a few pieces of furniture covered with 
white canvas. Against the wall leaned a step ladder, but the central figure of the scene 
was the paper hanger himself, a man of such massive proportions, that standing on the 
second round of the ladder, he reached the ceiling without the slightest effort. He 
dexterously moved his brush up and down, up and down, with never ceasing regularity, 
and as he turned to dip it in the paste I saw that it was J. B. Kirkland. 

I next found myself looking into a great room filled with men. I immediately 
recognized the place as the senate chamber at \'('ashington. While I was looking about 
the room searching for some familiar face or form, my attention was attracted by a 
gentleman of Pecksnifhan proportions, who rose to speak. The house came to order in- 
stantly, and several ladies in the balcony tossed flowers to the speaker. I looked at him 
carefully, and as I looked a feeling of horrified dismay came over me. Could this chubby 
cheeked thing with expansive white vest, this creature in checked suit, wildly gesticulating 
and pointing with a fat forefinger be H. H. Boswell? 

The dwarf nodded, "This is Senator Boswell. As you see, that once romantic 
figure has waxed rotund and globular, but he is as much sought after by the fair sex as 
ever; he would rather be charmed by many than chained by one. The theme on which 
he is now raving is 'The hand that cooks the prunes should taste the political pie.' 

A hospital operating room came into view. A man lay on the table, and bending 
over him was a doctor who seemed to be massaging the patient's neck in a peculiar 
manner. A little Chinese nurse in uniform stood by, constantly handing him fresh 
banana peeling. This he placed on the neck for a moment, then cast aside for a fresh 

29 



1A8HILA IS)1S-^^-^^ 



poultice. As he turned to give the nurse some directions, I saw his face and recognized 
R. I. Jolly. 

The dwarf explained, "He went as a medical missionary to China soon after he 
received his M. D. from Vanderbilt. In the course of his practice he has discovered a 
method of settmg broken necks, those broken by hanging a specialty. A pension has been 
given him by the Chinese government." 

Traces of the new vision soon appeared, but confused, as if distorted by violent 
commotion. Presently the lines took shape, and I saw a suffragette procession moving, 
with banners streaming, down Pennsylvania Avenue. At the head of the procession vvas 
a striking figure, mature and matronly, yet militant and defiant. In one hand she carried 
a silken banner emblazoned with the words, "Death to the Tyrant," "Women Forever," 
while at her side hung a bright sword which she now and then brandished in the sun. 
They moved somewhat nearer when lo ! I recognized my old classmate, Jane Linfield. 
The dwarf said, "Woe be unto congress! for this Grand Army of United Suffragette 
Home Killers is proceeding to the capitol to force through one of their bills, requiring 
every man to insure his bride against divorce." 

Suddenly all this vanished and I could see only what looked to be a starry firma- 
ment. But it was all awry. The Great Dipper swung up and took a big slice out ol 
the Milky Way, and Orion, in trying to ward ofl the Little Bear, stuck his sword in the 
eye of the iVIoon. I looked in astonishment at the dwarf, who pointed to a man in the 
corner gazing up through a telescope: "They are under the influence of J. T. Weems. 
He has hypnotized the heavens, so that they are compelled to act at his call. There in 
a cage in the corner is an inhabitant of Mars, which he drew down by the same hypnotic 
powers." 

The crystal turned and disclosed a man sitting in a little dingy room, furnished 
scantily with the bare necessities. Suddenly he raised his head and I saw that it vvas 
W. M. Cain. On his face was an e.\pression, first of deep thought, then of sudden en- 
thusiasm and achievement. He sprang to his feet, seized an odd little silver ornament 
from the table, twisted and bent the rods that projected from it, and held it aloft trium- 
phant. 1 he dwarf said in an awed whisper, "Behold the man whose name will soon be 
on every tongue, whose invention will be a boon to half of humanity. He has contrived 
an arrangement of invisible mirrors, held in a light metal framework, which placed on 
the under side of a woman's hat or in her pompadour will enable her to see her back hair 
at all times without the slightest effort. Needless to say, his fortune is made." 

Hearing footsteps approaching, the weird little man exclaimed, "And now here is 
the last ol all." I leaned forward, trembling with expectation mingled with fear. Jus! 
as the crystal was changing a little red devil jumped out of the fire and stuck a pitchfork 
in it; the thing exploded and the devil and dwarf vanished in a cloud of smoke. 
"So fade the glass, and end with it the magic 
That necromancy did infuse the crystal with." 

PROPHET.

Patterson Enters the Debate 



Mr. President, Honorable Judges, Ladies and Gentlemen: I beg youi 
pardon but there aren't any ladies present. The question before us to-nighl 
is. Resolved that the U. S. should build and maintain a much greater navy 
than at present. Remember the question. 

Now^, Honorable Judges, I do not think that the U. S. should adopt 
the initiative and referendum. Then there's Hawaii. I cannot see that the 
restriction of immigration will do us any good, and what's the use of retain- 
ing the Philippines if we don't want them? Mr. President, think of the 
nations of Europe. Can we stand idly by? No; the time for us to act has 
passed, and when we think of our national honor, when we think of woman 
suffrage, when we think of free trade and protection, it is then. Honorable 
Judges, that we decide that the U. S. should have a much greater navy than 
she has at present. I thank you.

The Ideal Co-ed 

The ideal co-ed is a thing of books, 

A creature of brain entirely; 
With stooping shoulders and studious looks, 

She digs all day and half the night; 

People say she is wondrous bright : 

But her figure's an awful sight. 
Her thoughts are deep in the classic past. 
She only thinks of A. B. at last; 

She has fled this world and its masculine charms. 

And a refuge found in Minerva's arms. 

Now, the kind of co-ed that I describe 

Is a co-ed seen very rarely ; 
The real co-ed's a thing of grace. 
With dainty figure and winsome face; 

She walks and rides, and she cuts, mon Dieu ! 

But every professor lets her through; 
For her each year is a round of joy, 
A. B. means nothing if not "A Boy," 

And you and I must yield to her charms. 

And take the place of Minerva's aims.

Athletics 

Considering the fact that this is only the third year that we have been 
allowed to take part in inter-collegiate athletics our success thus far has been 
phenomenal. 

On behalf of the students we take this opportunity of expressing to 
inter-class series of football games was omitted. However, the college was 
able to score two victories over the fast, heavy, and well-trained Prep. team. 
As everyone knows, we are still forbidden by the conference fathers to take 
part in inter-coUegiate football. But "Where there is life there is hope." 

In basket ball we have been eminently successful. From a squad com- 
posed largely of Freshmen and Sophomores, Coach Fletcher picked a team 
which divided a series with the strong A. & M. team, and defeated Missis- 
sippi College three out of four games. At the end of the season we stood tied 
with the A. & M. team for the state championship. Coach Fletcher is to 
be congratulated upon the success he has had with the team, the majority of 
whom this year played their first game of inter-coUegiate basket ball. 

At this writing it is only possible to surmise in regard to baseball and 
track events, but the outlook for both is veiy promising. Mr. Peaster, a ball 
player of experience and ability, has been secured to coach the ball team. 
With a nucleus of nine of last year's team to build around and much promis- 
ing material, prospects for a winning team are very favorable. Mr. Fletcher 
is also coaching the track team and every afternoon a large squad is out for 
practice. 

On behalf of the students we take the opportunity of expressing to 
Professor E. Y. Burton our appreciation of this undying interest he has always 
taken in our athletic affairs; and to Coaches Fletcher and Peaster, we would 
say that we appreciate what they have done toward getting out winning teams 
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 rmging 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, 

I he friendships there made long ago. 
The purple and white of her banner 
Are cherished wherever they 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. 

Every swiftly and more swiftly 

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

It can never die.

Lamar Literary Society Hi^ory 

Although the past year has not been a record breaking one for the 
Lamar Literary Society, we are proud to state that her men have at least well 
sustained the reputation and fair name which her members of the past have 
won for her. 

When the session of 1912-13 began, the old men found themselves few 
in number. Undaunted by this, they went to work in the true spirit which 
has always characterized the men of the L. L. S. The result of their work 
IS shown not only in the character of the new men obtained, but also by the 
honors which the society has won. In all of the college contests her men have 
more than held their own. Her representatives against the other colleges 
have also reflected credit upon the society. In every field of college activity 
her influence has been felt. 

Particularly are we proud of the fact that the society this year as she 
has so often done before, furnishes the speaker for the M. I. O. A. contest. 

When one stands within the sacred hall of the L. L. S. and inspired by 
the pictures of those who have gone before, listens to the speeches and debates 
which are now being delivered by her members, he can but feel that the 
future of the society is safe. Indeed, her men will continue to uphold her fair 
name, believing that success depends upon their realization of her motto, 
"Nulla palma sine labore".

Hi^ory of the Galloway Literary Society 

The history of this society can not with justice to her mighty men be 
written on a page. From the days of her earhest infancy, under the inspiration 
of the matchless man whose name she bears, the history of the Galloway 
Society has been published by the actions of her men. They have ever been 
prominent in every phase of college life, as athletes, as members of the \'oung 
Men's Christian Association, and as students. Two men: — J. B. Mitchell 
and W. L. Duren — have won both the State and Interstate Oratorical Con- 
tests. Four others — J. R. Countiss, W. F. Cook, C. A. Alexander, and J. 
W. Broom — have won the State Contest. Every Editor-in-Chief of the old 
Collegian was a Galloway man with two exceptions. Three men have edited 
the Bobashela, while a host of others have served on the editorial staff. 

The work of this year has been unusually good. The program has 
always been well rendered and a greater harmony has prevailed than ever 
before. These things point to one fact: that the Galloway Society of the 
future will be as great, yea greater, than the Galloway of the past.

Young Men's Christian Association 

Who can take a mother's place? What can be substituted for the 
sweet, pure influence of the home? Nothing can. These two — mother and 
home — stand separate and alone in the life of each man, and, taken away, 
can never be replaced. And yet when the new arrival, facing with trepidation 
the "Unknown," gazes around him on Y. M. C. A. "College Night," sees 
the hospitality lavished, and the brotherliness prevailing, it is, to his home-sick 
heart, as a breath from home. 

Yes, the Young Men's Christian Association strives, not only in the 
"College Night " welcome, but all through college, to take a mother's place — 
in assisting the youth in his studies, in helping him in work, in leaching prin- 
ciples of manliness and integrity, and in planting his feet on the Rock that 
IS safe. 

No father need be afraid to entrust his son to an institution that has a 
strong and flourishing Y. M. C. A. No doubtful glances are cast at the 
college whose every student gives his heart-felt support to this organization. 
It has become so much a part of the great loom of college life, that not a man 
graduates without showing woven into his life the aims and principles of the 
Y. M. C. A. 

Millsaps College has always been fortunate in having a live and virile 
Y. M. C. A. It is supported alike by students and Faculty. The helpful 
prayer-meeting services on Friday evenings give the student just the spiritual 
support he needs during the cares of the week. Nor is this the only religious 
feature. Classes are organized for the study of the Bible, and especially for 
the study of missions and some phases of home conditions. The men who have 
enrolled at Millsaps in the Students' Volunteer Movement are our special 
pride. 

But we must not forget the other two sides of the triangle, "Body, Mind 
and Spirit." The organization gives its v/hole support to clean athletics and 
exerts all its influence to inculcate ideals of bodily purity and manly virtue 
among the students. 

The self-help bureau, another special feature of the association, is now 
assisting several men to maintain themselves in college. Much good work has 
been done in this way. 

In the intellectual development of the student, the Y. M. C. A. gives its 
cordial support. The fact that its members stand foremost in college can be 
pointed to as the fruit of its labor. 

Thus, in this threefold way, the Young Men's Christian Association has 
become a power for good in our college. It is fulfilling its mission — the mak- 
ing of MEN.

(Apologies to J. H. Mulligan's "In Kentucky ') 

The faculty is the smartest 

At Millsaps, 
Their answers are the tardiest 

At Millsaps, 
But their interest is the keenest 
Tho the boys may be the greenest 
And sometimes are the meanest 

At Millsaps. 



College spirit burns the brightest 

At Millsaps, 
Rules are always "bout the tightest 

At Millsaps, 
But students are the quickest. 
Their pranks the \ery slickest, 
Fov heads are not the thickest 

At Millsaps. 

The lessons are the longest 

At Millsaps, 
But the athletes are the strongest 

At Millsaps, 
Ball players are the fleetest. 
Their hits always the neatest 
And victory really s\veetest 

.At Millsaps. 

Ambition mounts the highest 
At Millsaps, 
The courses are the dryest

When pass marks are the fewest 

And fellows feel the bluest 
Friends are ever truest

When Greek Meets Greek 

When Greek meets Greek, no matter where or when. 
They forge a chain, the Fellowship of Men — 

Too strong and true for word or tongue or pen ; 
Knowmg that each has been a chosen man, 
Knowmg that each is scion of a clan. 
Though each has worshiped at an alien shrme. 
Back m the dear, dead days of Auld Lang Syne. 

When Greek meets Greek, it is no matter where 

The stranger comes from, we are welcomed there — 

Although our badge be Star or Shield or Square. 
For hearts beat ever high and hands clasp true. 
Though Delta Tau he be or Sigma Nu, 
Phi Delt, Phi Gam, or Deke; 

And college dreams that bless and sometimes burn. 
Like half-forgotten melodies return. 

When Greek meets Greek. 

Warren Piper.

The Love Affairs of a College Professor 

Rrr-rrr-rrr went the clock. Almost automatically an arm shot out from under 
the covers to shut off the alarm and the man turned over to sleep again. But to no 
avail; the noise and even the slight effort of the will required to stop the noise had 
wakened him completely. Half past seven, breakfast at eight, time to get up. He 
stretched himself and yawned regretfully. Then his eye wandered to the calendar. It 
was the second of May, his birthday, marking a quarter of a century in his life. He 
lay back and considered the changes that had come into his life during the last brief 
year. Long ago he had given up the habit of making New Year resolutions, for the 
first few weeks of the year resemble a battlefield the day after the fight, and the air 
is filled with the death rattle of broken resolutions. There seems to be a contagious 
malady abroad, and there is no wonder that our futile purposings are involved in the 
general destruction. Hence Frank Hall had chosen his birthday as the best time to 
make his resolutions. 

A smile came over his face as he thought. One year ago, as he had approached 
the end of his university course, he had made two resolutions: never to teach girls and 
under no circumstances to think of marriage before he was thirty. And here he was 
a professor in a girls' college and, what was still worse, he was engaged. That is, he 
was not engaged but it was not his fault; all he lacked was the girl's consent. It was 
not a long story. Arriving in September he had found among others a certain 
blue-eyed Senior, Ellen Braughtas, pretty, bright, and blessed with a winsome smile 
and a happy, care-free disposition that disarmed envy and made friends of all. Before 
the first month had passed he was blindly in love; in less than two months he had even 
acknowledged the fact to himself, and in three months he had confessed it to her. He 
would not have dared to do this but for the fact that, living in a distant state, she 
spent the Christmas holidays at the college and he was able to see a great deal of her 
without causing any comment. She seemed much flattered at his declaration, possibly 
a little coquettish; but it appeared that she did not know her own mind and he could 
get no definite answer. This hesitation led to a discussion of Jimmie, a girlhood 
friend of hers, and he used all his eloquence and powers of persuasion to convince her 
that she could not care for Jimmie. He succeeded so well that she consented to accept 

97 



BOB^SHIL^ l®IS' 



a ring from him, which she would -wear as a remmder of his affection, until she should 
find that she cared more for someone else. In case she should consent to the marriage, 
she would transfer the rmg to her engagement finger, and he would try to restrain his 
joy until after commencement, when the ceremony would take place without the rough 
and tumble congratulations of her school-mates. 

And so the matter stood. "Birthday resolutions are no better than the rest," he 
muttered as he rose to dress. And yet he could not say that he was sorry that he had 
broken either of his last two; for he was happy, being m love with love, and the hope 
that springs eternal whispered m his ear that his love would not be without its reward. 

At twelve o'clock he entered the room where his senior class was assembled. By 
a great exertion of will power he had learned to treat the other members of the class as 
if they really existed, and so without giving much more than a casual glance to Miss 
Broughtas he looked over the roll and began his lecture on Browning. He had hardly 
more than begun when he noticed her hand as she took notes there on the front seat. 
It was perfectly bare. The sentence died in his throat with a peculiar gurgle; she glanced 
up and as she did so her left hand, which lay on the outer edge of the desk, turned, 
and there on the third finger shone the diamond. From that little sparkle it seemed to 
him that the sun itself had entered the room and filled it with supernatural radiance. 
He tried to continue, but no words came; something filled his throat as if he were suffo- 
cating; he felt that he must get outside at once in order to breathe; so with a muttered 
'Excuse me for one moment " he left the room. At the door an idea struck him and, 
hurrying to the office, he phoned to a nearby ice-cream parlor and ordered cream and 
confections for the whole class, to be sent up at once with men to serve. 

In ten minutes he was back at his desk and, calm to all outward appearance, he 
continued his lecture. But the tenor of it was entirely changed; he dwelt at length on 
the marriage of Browning, the sympathy that he ever found waiting for him at his fire- 
side, the unity of purpose, the harmony of ideals, the communion of souls. How could 
a man working under such conditions fail to impress the world with his genius. Never 
had he waxed so eloquent before. The class ceased to take notes and gazed at him 
in some surprise, but at any rate they seemed to be interested in what he was saying. 
As for Miss Broughtas he did not dare to look at her. 

Then he heard the rattle of wheels on the driveway and the tramp of heavy feet 
on the stairway. "Young ladies," he said, "I will close the work of to-day now, for 
I have a momentous announcement to make. This is my birthday. I will not say 
which one, but I have not gone so far in hie that I cease to notice the milestones. I 



confess that I would have felt a little lonely without some celebration of the event, and 
so I have decided to have one myself. It is rather ungenerous to enforce compulsory 
attendance on my birthday party in this manner, but I hope that you will enjoy your- 
selves so well that you will forgive me." 

rhey had a merry and memorable hour together. The novelty of the occasion 
added to the gaiety of the girls, and the years rolled from his shoulders leaving him an 
irresponsible boy of fifteen. He tried to speak a word alone to Ellen but he was 
always the center of a chattering group, and she alone seemed to avoid him. Several 
times he caught her looking at him with a questioning, half-amused expression, but she 
would not meet his gaze. She must know that all this was for her, the outpouring of 
an irrepressible flood of joy. The party was what would be called a distinct success. 
Laughtei filled the room and corridor, chairs were overturned, dresses were soiled, 
toasts were drunk in spoonfuls of cream with rhymes that would ha\e made even 
Browning turn green with envy, with never a lull in the merriment until the bell announced 
the dinner hour. 

He walked across the campus feeling that he must have made a ridiculous fool 
of himself, and nevertheless he was perfectly content. He who never makes a fool oi" 
himself IS a fool all the time. He trod upon air, his head in the clouds, breathing the 
breath of the gods. Suddenly it dawned upon him that he had just passed the dean 
without speaking. He was sorry for he had ne\er felt on so friendly terms with all 
the world; then he greeted most profusely the janitor who happened to be passing. 
Entering his room he threw his hat in one corner and his books in the other, and half 
unconsciously opened a small package that lay on his desk. He noticed from the post- 
mark that it had been mailed in town that morning. With increasing interest he 
examined the contents. There lay his ring with a penciled note: "I think I like Jimmie 
best".

Mississippi Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Association 

The Mississippi Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Association was organized at Crystal 
Springs, Mississippi, in the summer of 1896. The Mississippi Chautauqua Assembly had 
invited the male colleges of the state to send speakers there to represent them in an 
oratorical contest, and it is to these representatives that the association owes its founding. 
Millsaps College was represented in the first contest by J. W. Canada and R. L. 
Cannon. The colleges represented in the Association are the University of Mississippi, 
A. & M. College, Mississippi College, and Millsaps College. 

The objects of the M. I. O. A., as stated in the preamble of the constitution, are 
to form closer bonds of friendship between the leading colleges of the state, to encourage 
and promote the study and cultivation of oratory, and to meet in annual contests to 
determine the progress that is being made toward that end. 

The records of the Association show that the first contest was held at Crystal 
Springs in 1896, and that J. W. Canada of Millsaps was awarded the medal. The 
second contest was held at Meridian in 1897, and Maurice G. Fulton from the Uni- 
versity was presented with the prize. The records for the years I 898 and 1 899 have 
not been kept, but information from other sources shows that the third contest was held 
in the Millsaps College chapel and was won by a representative of the University, and 
the fourth, held at Natchez in 1899, was won by a representative of Mississippi College. 
The fifth contest was held at Vicksburg in 1900, and a Millsaps representative, J. B. 
Mitchell, was declared winner. Meridian was the scene of the sixth contest in 1901, 
and again a Millsaps man, W. L. Duren, won. J. R. Countiss of Millsaps won the 
medal in the seventh contest held at Columbus in 1902. At Natchez, in 1903, W. 
F. Cook, of Millsaps was winner in the eighth contest. History repeated itself at 
Hattiesburg the next year, when C. A. Alexander won the ninth contest for Millsaps. 
The tenth contest was held in Brookhaven in 1 905 and resulted in a victory for Edgar 
Godbold, of Mississippi College, with M. S. Pitman, of Millsaps, a close second. The 
eleventh contest was held at Kosciusko, May I I, 1906, and E. Webster of the Uni- 
versity won first prize, and W. A. Williams of Millsaps won second. The twelfth 
contest was held at Columbus; Stone of Mississippi College won first place. The 
thirteenth was held at Meridian, and Brumfield of A. & M. was awarded first honor. 
The fourteenth contest was held at Greenwood; Paul Renshaw of the University was 
winner. The fifteenth meet was in Greenville; Gillespie of the University was declared 
the winner. Two years ago the contest was held at Gulfport, and once again Millsaps 
came out victorious, J. W. Broom winnng first place. Last year at Meridian, Missis- 
sippi College won first place with G. C. Clark of Millsaps a close second.

"It's an 111 Wind-" 

The rain is pouring down. 

And muddy is the street; - 

There seems no one in town 
But a watchman on his beat. 

As on my window-seat 

Ennui I try to drown. 
The rain is pouring down 

And muddy is the street. 

But ah! a form in brown! 

A crossing she must meet ; 
She coyly hfts her gown, 

Two daintiest of feet — 
The rain is pouring down 

And muddy is the street.

Go, little book, and speak to all 

Of pleasures great and sorrows small, 

Of days that with the past are numbered. 

Of hopes that never once have slumbered, 

Of all the love of college days. 

Of censure give us less than praise. 

And so we bid you fond farewell 

Until next year here tales may tell.
