To the public- we extend, in tlie name of the 1914 Eol)ashehi, 
greetings. Of its ])raisewortliy features we need not speak, for tliey 
stand as tributes to themselves. Tlie things that our publication lacks 
Ave pass over in silence, trusting that they may escape yoiu' eye. Our 
only regret, in looking over the pages, is the fact that it fails to reveal 
the spirit behind the classes and organizations wliicli we here portray. 
It has been with us a labor of love, and if you. the friends and students 
of the institution, find in these pages not only a portion of merit but 
of pleasure we shall be satisfied. 


Professor E. Y. Burton 

The student's truest friend and adviser, whose name stands for college 

spirit, and whose untiring energy and enthusiasm is 

ever active in aiding JNIillsaps, we dedicate 

this tenth volume of the

Secretnri/ of Mill. saps Colletje, Jacksun, Miss. 

June 5, 1924. 

Dkar Sir : 

I received your letter asking for inforniation of my class — tliat of 191 i. I 
must confess that it was hard to find out much about the class. I searched in the 
New York World, the St. Louis Globe-Democrat and the Jackson Daily News — but 
in vain. I have sought diligently in all the cross-road papers, and by various other 
means J Iiave ascertained the salient facts of their haunts, liabitats, and occupations. 
Some of the records were somewhat surprising, but most of them have continued, 
more or less, in the habits and characteristics they displayed at college. 

Brumfield, it seems, is establishing a very fine record in law. He is getting 
along very well in almost every resjject, even financially, in spite of the fact that 
he has been married some two or three years. Presumably Ott can out-argue his 

A very interesting career is that of J. B. Cain, formerlv recognized at Millsaps 
as "some" social-stunter. He is known very widely as the autlior of "Social-.Stunting 
and How To Do It." In the preface to the book, he states that he regrets tliat he 
ever iield that there w;is no sucli thing as love. Kid is fast catching on and has 
almost learned Iiow to take a hint. 

,Iolin \\'right Chisholm is an evangelist in the country-districts. Bearing a 
))onderous dignity, he is making a great success. They say that money can't help 
but come his way, and some of his collections would make Billy Sunday look like 
tiiirty cents. Eventually, I think he will succeed in bringing cosmos out of chaos. 

T. jM. Cooper has made tours all over the known world in quest of geological 
specimens. On one trip he went into the Crater of Vesuvius. Wliile there, an 
eruption started in the Archeozoic region and came up through the Proterozoic, 
P.ileozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoie. S])ri)ut blown two miles, six hundred 
seventy-two feet, four and five-sevenths inches above liase level. He insists, how- 
ever, that he has not yet experienced anything hotter than the fire at the Main 
Building in 1911. 

S. L. Crockett has recently been exiielled from the Senate Chamber in Wash- 
ington for hollering and disturbing the peace on Pennsylvania Avenue at night. 
He is back home now. making n hot race for Notary Public, with the aid of his wife 
and all the other suflragettes. We feel sure that \ etc will eome out victorious in 
this, so great a race. 

Nolan Harmon has charge of a work in Louisiana. The people on his charge 
seem to like him well, having all faith in everything he says, and believing that he 
knows everything. From this blindness may they be speedily delivered. 

Hathorn is pros])ering as a lawyer in Wanilla. He has succeeded in running 
almost all the other cheap lawyers out of bis conununity. Perhaps it is his senti- 
mentality that enables him to clear negroes, as fast as they steal, for half tlie sum 
of what they steal. 

Donald Howe, better known as Doc, has discovered some important steps in 
connection with wireless telegraphy and telephony. We were sorry to learn that he 
accidentally killed his wife by the explosion of chemicals in his laboratory, which 
was directly underneath the kitchen. After having buried all of her that he could 
find, Old Frau is doing his best to overcome the catastrophe. 



Miss Stella !McGehee lias already been recognized as a poetic genius b_v the 
literary public. Her best poem is "Working the Faculty for a Pass," a sociological 
poiiii in blank verse. Her only trouble is a prosaic husband who doesn't know an 
lanil ic meter from a meter-stick. 

Mitchell has sprung into prominence since the publication of his treatise "A 
Svni))osium on the Study of Greek and Latin at Millsa))s College. ' The central 
tluiuglit of his very wordy theme seems to be Pass or J3ust. It is affectionately 
dtdicated. of course, to Dr. Swartz. 

Waldo W. ]Moore, Jr., practiced law a few years at Bay Springs, after leaving 
college. His social stunting ceased when he eloped with a Xorth Jackson girl and 
settled down in ^lexico. Here's hoping that the revolutionists won't be any rougher 
than the shack fellows were. 

John Phillijis has done more or less resting since he finished school. He has 
followed astronomical work and has succeeded in establishing wireless couununi- 
eatiou witli Mars. Among other things, lie reports that the boll weevil has struck 
there and that just now politics are hot. So far he hasn't learned their latest dances 
nor how the girls wear their hair. 

D. J. Savage is the teacher of a little country school and a candidate for beat 
ciinstalile. He has been turned out of Church twice — once for telling the things 
that he did in chemical laboratory, and the otlier time for trying to elect delegates 
to District Conference by secret caucus. Duroc Jersey always would politic. 

I{. K. Selby is, of course, making good in his work. He expects soon to be 
ad\anced to an eight hundred dollar work and, besides, not to have more than eight 
cluirclies in his charge. 

Miss Steen went as a missionary to China. There she was very popular — so 
miuli so that she became attached to the Chinese Ciovernment. Since then, liowever, 
she has been dismissed for asking so many (]uestions. Strange how habits will 
stick to a person ! 

,1. \\. ^^'ard is a jiitcher in one of the minor leagues. Once in his life he has 
a te/im that will suijjiort him. Once on a recent tri]) to Africa with his team he 
knocked several natives senseless with his fast spit ball, and struck out the umjiire 
and three bystanders. Ploughboy always was some pitcher. 

I am sorry to inform you that as yet I have done nothing worthy of mention. 
True, I have gotten some literary ability through writing twenty page letters to 
the girls, hut if my present plans are successful I shall soon cease even from that, 
for my wife will com]iel me to do so.

Main Building 


Bi$lorv of Cbe Senior Class 

It was in the fall of ]91() wlit-n this hand of .students, sixty in number, assembled 
to have their names enrolled upon that great hook so earefuUy guarded and pre- 
served by our secretary. After being duly initiated into the mystic rites of college 
life by those who thought themselves wiser than we, we astonished the professors 
with our brilliant answers in class, and after our first exam, on account of there 
being so few failures, it was decided at a special call of the faculty meeting to dis- 
pense entirely with the extra fee for exams. It was our class who brought the 
faculty to a realiz.ition that the first of April was and has to be a National Holiday. 

Not only did we win honors in the class rooms, but we made ourselves felt as a 
mighty force on the athletic field and in the society halls. There was little wonder 
that we excelled all preceding classes in Bible Study, for we had right in our midst 
a Cain and a Daniel, who were both quite Able men. We all agreed that Math 
was a "sop" and never dreamed of going to class without the most careful prep- 

After a sununer of recreation we returned, rejoicing in the fact that we were 
no longer to be styled "green little freshies." We profited by our past experiences 
and found the way much easier. W'e had long since learned better than to call our 
English Professor "^Ir. Kern," and were no longer afraid he would expel us from 
school for laughing in the library. We failed to make many new discoveries in the 
chemical laboratory, but we tried mighty hard to memorize the text. Many of our 
men est;ihlished for themselves a reputation on the athletic field which will not be 
forgotten in years to come. "Plow Boy," spurning all offers of the national league 
teams, won for himself great fame as a pitcher on our baseball team. 

By the time we had reached the Junior Class our ranks had become much 
thinned. How near, yet how far we seemed from that much-covettd Senior Section. 

And now at last that we have come to the final year of college life we have a 
mingled thought of joy and sadness. By an accident of fire we have been de])rived 
of our main building, made sacred to each of us because of happy associations with 
it. We will have the privilege — for we truly count it thus — of graduating in the 
"Prep" Hall. Truly, not all our eft'orts have been crowned with success, but we 
have learned to make our failures "Stepping stones to higher things." 

And now, as we go forth, realizing fully the responsibilities of our positions, 
let us ever be mindful of the noble and lofty ideal which our j)rofessors have 
endeavored so faithfully to set before us. No longer will tlie difficulties be smoothed 
by the kind words and aid of our class mates; but memories of their friendships 
will be lasting. As we each one take up the duties of life, let tliis thought be 
par.imount in our minds: 

"True worth is in being, not seeming; 
In doing, each day that goes by. 
Some little good, not in dreaming 

Of great things to do by and by. 
For whatever men say in their blindness. 

And spite of the fancies of youth. 
There's nothing so kindly as kindness. 
And nothing so royal as truth." 

B. G. S., Historian.

Cbe God$ Are Kind 

The grey towers of Fairmont College rose shadowy and ghost-like in the thiekly 
gathering mist of a Xovemher evening. The elaiig of the hell aniiomieed the hour 
of five to the line of waiting girls in the hig hall. 

"Down the Avenue, this evening, girls," directed Miss .Mel.eod. taking her 
place and leading the line out across the cami)us. The girls giggled ex])eetaiitlv as 
they followed the Lady Principal. 

"And remember, jjlease," she finished, "that perfect order must he maintained." 

The Avenue led past the Baylor School of Technology, and the sturdy Techs 
were very open in their admiration of Fairmont. Admiration that often took a 
violent form in the most ardent but oftentimes ill-fated love missives; and persistent 
hanging out on every corner and street that the Fairmont girls frequented. Espe- 
cially would they turn out on the evenings the girls invaded the Avenue. On tjiese 
occasions the stern, erect figure of INIiss MeLeod would be seen leading the line — 
stern and uncom])romising, looking straight ahead yet seeing on all sides and men- 
tally marking the names of many fresh young fellows from her list of eligibles to 
the informal receptions at Fairmont that were so eagerly looked forward to by the 
Tech boys. The Lady Prineijial used this prerogative with an impartial hand, 
striking terror to the hearts of niaiiy |i(ior youtJis, who never seemed to have this in 
mind until their more fortunate companions received little square envelopes with the 
crest of Fairmont College on the flap. Then their thonglits would reluctantly Hy 
back to various evenings on the Avenue, when fearlessly they had called to the 
Fairmont girls, and in the eyis of Miss MeLeod, scandalously flirted with them — 
who, if we must have the truth, were eager enough to flirt back, if it were not for 
the unrelenting figure at their head. So once a week the girls giggled ex))ectantly 
as the Lady Principal ln-rself took her ))laci- at the head of the line and led tliem 
out down the Avenui', not daring to entrust to one of her teachers this iui])ortant 
place, and ever admonishing her girls to keep perfect order. 

On this particular evening .lack Reilly, the sturdy fullback of the Tech In- 
vincibles, was on the Avenue. .Tack h;ul no time for girls — and all the adoring 
glances he received on the field from the young Ladies in the grand-stand underneath 
Baylor's gold and crimson had no effect on Jack. Down the Avenue he came with 
a crowd of swaggering young fellows. 

"Hey, the old duemia is with them this evening." sjioke u|) a c'ha)i in a loud 

"Nothing strange 'bout that." answered Red Hoskins. 

"And so nnieh the better! We'll worry the old lady. Come on, fellows. Let's 
let them know we are around here," jjut in a third. 

"Perfect order, girls," connn.inded Miss MeLeod in an undertone, meeting the 
boys with a cold, staring eye. Hut the e.irs of l'"airmont were elsewhere. 

"Hey, there, girlies !" 

"Three cheers for Fairmont ! " 

"Hello, little blondie!" 

"You look good to father! " 
And many other similar exjiressions as the line iiassed, besides many stage whispers 
thrown out for the benefit of the Lady Principal. 

Jack Reilly ])assed the line with an amused smile jilaying on his good-natured 
face. He idly wondered what pleasure this gave his fellow Techs. Suddenly he 


looked around as one will when feeling a presence — looked around into two brown 
eyes, dark, liquid, talking eyes that looked out from a face of equal attractiveness, 
framed in a mass of raven black hair. Jack was startled. Never before had he 
realized the beauty that a pair of brown eyes could give to a girl and certainly 
never before had lie seen such eyes with such a setting. F.-iirmont passed on, safe 
under the capable leadership of their Lady Principal, amid the farewells yelled 
back bv the Techs. And through it all Jack walked as in a dream, hearing nothing 
about liim, but with the picture of two brown eyes still before him — liquid, roguish 
eves that put a fellow on his mettle. Impressed.'' Why, Jack had an insane desire 
to follow tile Girl; all memory of Miss McLeod and her charge having left liim. 

Should he ask the fellows who she was? Did anyone else get his vision? Did 
lie want the fellows to know how he was struck? These questions rapidly passed 
through his mind. 

".lack, old kid, what did you think of them?" spoke uj) the loud \oiced ciiaj). 

"Who was the girl witli the blue dress on?" ventured Reilly. 

"The girl witli the l)lue dress on! Listen to our ladies' man. .Mr. .lack Reilly," 
yelled a fellow. 

"The girl with the blue dress on!" took up the crowd. "Joke! Joke!" 

Reilly was dazed and a little sore that bi.s question should be treated so liilari- 
ously, until tlie surprising information dropped out that all the girls were in blue — 
Fairmont's uniform. Poor Jack! His sight liad been somewhat limited. 

But the Girl stayed witli him. Two talking brown eyes looked out at him. 
sometimes smiling, sometimes with a roguish twinkle — and then best of all, in an 
appealing sort of way. He must meet the (iirl. And it was his secret. His fellow 
Techs must never know — or he would never hear the last of it. Over and over he 
repented for h.ning indifferently tossed aside his invitation to Fairmont's first 
reception a few weeks back. When would he have another chance, and would the 
Girl know him from the other Techs? Jack was constantly asking himself such 
questions, and all the while m.iking' every effort to find out more about the Girl, 
Again and again he was on the Avenue as the line in blue was marshalled past. The 
Girl was always in her place, with eyes sometimes roguish, sometimes a])))ealing, 
but always straight ahead, or so far beyond Jack that the poor fellow would walk 
off crestfallen. 

But one evening the Girl failed to apjicir in the line. Reilly looked frantically 
for her, but he saw nothing but a blurred line of blue. And ,ill the next week he 
was grouchy. He lagged at practice on tlie field — something tli.-it the full-back had 
never done before. 

"Hey. Reilly," growled the coach. "Get 3'our pep ! Get your pep ! What's the 
matter with you? " 

But the girl appeared with the line next week, and Jack found his pep 

On Thanksgiving Baylor's last football game was to be fought out with the 
State University. This was the big game of the season and the coach was putting 
his Invincibles through a week of hard practice. School after school had gone down 
before the gold .md crimson team this season, but they had tackled no foe 
measured u|) to the State University's team. Fairmont occupied reserved boxes in 
the grand-stand. As the Invincibles trotted out on the field. Reilly felt a thrill 
througli and through as he saw Baylor's gold and crimson entwined with the white 
and blue of Fairmont. Never before had Baylor's grand-stand witnessed such a 



struggle. Long and hard did the Teclis struggle, but it was a struggle with giants. 
Six to six stood the score at the end of the third quarter. 

"Fellows, I'm betting on you," called the coach from the side line. 

The band struck up Baylor's "Rah, Rah," song, and Fairmont waved frantically 
as the Tech eleven trotted back for the last quarter. Jack Reilly felt new blood in 
his veins. He also felt the presence of two liquid brown eyes — expectant eyes now. 
He felt that his chance had come, and a few minutes later, seizing the ball, the 
sturdy full-back rushed down the field for a touchdown. 

Tile grand-stand, the bleachers, and the side lines arose with one mighty shout. 
Yell after yell went up for Reilly. Never before liad Baylor such a hero. Was it 
fancy or reality that Jack saw, amid the waving streamers of gold and crimson, two 
brown eyes smiling down on him from the grand-stand as he was borne trium]jliantlv 
from the field ? 

Anyway, two days later the Ciirl smiled at him on the Avenue, smiled gloriously, 
and iier eyes seemed to have a wishful longing in them, just as if they would love 
1:o know Baylor's hero. Or so it seemed to Jack. Soon after, the news went over 
the campus that Fairmont would be at home to the Tech boj's the next week. Never 
before had Jack iiad such thrills. At last he would meet the Girl! But if he could 
only manage beforehand to let her know how eager he was to meet her, and what 
it would mean to him! Could he write a note? He remembered that several fellows 
iiad secret correspondents at Fairmont. But would he be able to get the note to 
tile (rirl.^ Again he remembered that the girls were on their campus on Sundays 
without the oversigiit of teachers, and in this way many friendships had been formed 
between the two schools. 

Jack decided to try this method of reaching the Girl. Sunday evening found 
him a piker around Fairmont. Groups of girls here and there noticed a young Tech 
hanging around, but Jack's eyes were busy looking for the Girl. Nowhere was she 
to be seen. However, two sharp eyes from an upper window did see Reilly waiting 
on the cam))us steps and a few moments later Miss McLeod was down tiie stairs 
sailing .-icross the cami)us. ^^'ith a short whistle to himself Jack watched the I.ady 
Principal a])proach, knowing well what the interview would mean. 

"Young man, did you wish to see someone?" 

"Beg pardon, ^Nladani?" asked Jack, fighting for time. 

"You know full well that this is positively against our rules. You probably 
don't realize that you are compromising our girls — something that we cannot allow," 
j\Iiss ;\IcLeod hurried on, waxing eloquent. "You wouldn't think of iianging around 
a i)rivate home like this — and just make a comparison. Hasn't Fairmont the same 
right to jirotection? Our girls are sent here for jirotection, as well as for work. And 
you know full well that no intercourse is allowed between the two schools, except 
on occasions for that ])uri)ose. And certainly no young man who gives us trouble 
will be permitted to attend our receptions. " 

Jack's heart sank. "Very well. Madam, " he answered as Miss McLeod paused. 
"You will not have any more trouble from me." He turned to go. cursing himself 
over and over for this boneliead stunt. 

"And will you jjlease give me your name? " finished the Lady Princil)al. 

"Reilly, M-idam. Jack Reilly." 

Well, it was all up with Jack. His dreams of meeting the Girl were all gone. 
This interview meant that he was black-listed for the rest of the year. Never before 
had the fellow exijerieneed such disa])i)ointuient. H he had not acted such a fool in 
hanging around Fairmont! If some one would only kick him as soundly as he 
deserved ! 


It was a sick Jack that saw the little square envelopes with Fairmont's crest 
passed about to the eligible Techs a few days later. Over and over to himself he 
swore that never again would he have time to notice girls — even girls with liquid 
brown eyes. But tliis was tlie night of the reception! The niglit tliat could have 
meant so much to Jack. A few daj's later he jjassed the line of blue, but not with 
sufficient nerve to keep his eyes ahead, and once again the Girl suiilcd .-it him, smiled 
gloriously. And Reilly smiled back. Poor Reilly ! 

Weeks passed. The Techs were at hard work, preparing for examinations. 
They were less and less often on tlie Avenue now. One raw December evening Jack 
was coming out from the city. The car was croM-ded with early Christmas shoppers, 
and he was lucky to find a place on the back platform. With a jerk that sent the 
standing passengers falling over eacli other, the car stopped at Fairmont Avenue, 
and in alighting a lady stumbled from the car and fell on the sli])pery ))avement. 
Jumping (juickly from the car, Reilly assisted the lady to rise. Witli a start lie 
recognized Miss McLeod, who from her movements was evidently hurt. 

"Are you hurt. Madam.'' " solicitously questioned Jack. 

"My foot — it must be sprained ! Oh, what a pain !" Fairmont was a mile 
down the Avenue, and night was quickly gathering. 
\ "If you will let me lul]) you to the house right here at tlie corner, I'll call a 

t cab," suggested Reilly. 

Tlie offer was gratefully aecejited, for the sprain was a bad one, and Miss 
MeLeod was evidently suffering. A lialf hour later a cab stop])ed at Fairmont, and 
,Iaek carried tile Lady Principal up the steps into the big hall. 

"1 shall not forget this, Mr, Reilly," she gratefully murimired. "F hardly 
know what I would have done without you." 

"1 .1111 very glad I happened along. Miss MeLeod, and I trust tliat the sprain 
will not give you trouble." Reilly turned to go. Outside in tlie cold, bracing air 
he suddenly realized the situation. He had aetuallv invaded the sacred precincts 
of Fairmont ! 

Exams had come and gone. Baylor Tech was eagerly looking forward to the 
approaching holidays. And once again the little square envelopes with the blue and 
white crest found their way to the campus. Was it possible that Jack found one in 
his box! Could it be a mistake? With trembling hands he took out the card, the 
usual invitation to Fairmont's Christmas reception, -ccith the personal signature of 
Miss M (I, coil, Ladfi Principal! Small wonder that Jack saw visions that night, 
and all through the next day — visions of brown eyes, liquid, expectant eves. 

\\'itli ;i fast beating lieart he ))resented himself at Fairmont on the eventful 
night. Miss MeLeod was receiving the guests from her chair. 

"Mr. Reilly," she beamed, cordially extending her hand; and Jack suddenly 
noticed tliat her face was sweet and gentle in sjiite of her sharp eyes. "So glad to 
have you here. I am anxious to know which of our girls yon desire to meet." 

Jack smiled and looked around. The gods were kind. There stood tlie Girl 
framed in a nearby doorway. 

"Could I meet the young lady in the door.''" he asked treimilouslv. 

Miss MeLeod smiled, for this was by no means an infrequent request. 

"Certainly. Margaret, dear," called the Lady Principal. At last! The eyes 
were approaching. 

"Miss I-eteher, may I introduce Mr. Reilly?" Jack was looking into two liquid 
brown eyes. And they were happy, satisfied eyes now, as he dreaminglv led lier

my Zoological flame 

Dear girl, I wish I kjuw her well, 

And yet I dare not call. 

For spiders' webs and mud wasps' nests. 

And ugly things that crawl. 

Cocoons and hugs and toads adorn 

Her desk and stand and wall. 

Sweet girl. I'd love witli her to walk. 

If only I could stop her. 

When she ])icks up, uj)on the spot. 

An iiniocent grasshopper. 

And tells his wjiole anatomy, 

I do not think it's proper! 

Bright girl, I'd like to chat with her 
Rut she speaks of Hymenoptera, 
Of the stages of the Blastula, 
And the various Ortho])tera, 
Of segments, somites, symmetry, 
And of the Coleoptera. 

Fair girl. I'd like to he her friend, 
But may tlie gods protect me! 
Perhaps she'd give me some such name. 
Or else perchance dissect me. 
Examine, analyze, and draw, 

And never again collect me.

Blank, blank, blank — 

As I toj) till' ball on tbe tee. 
And I would that mv tongue dare utter 

The thoughts that arise in me ! 

Oh. well for my partner good 

That he isn't watching the pla_v. 

Oh. well for the caddie-lad. 

That he's deaf as a post today. 

And my partner's ball sails on . .... . 

To the last hole over the hill. 
But oh. for the stroke of some fairy's wand 

To hasten my ball which lies still! 

Blank, blank, bl.-ink — 

As I top the ball on the tee, 
But another chance for the game that is lost 

Will never come back to me.
