Volume XI, 1916 




Dr. A. F. Watkins 

N the polity of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, four years 
is the limit of a pastor's service in one charge. At the end of his 
quadrennium it may be definitely determined whether or not his 
work in that charge bids fair to endure. Also, in American col- 
leges four years is a student's generation. 

Therefore it is fitting that this Annual of 1916 should be dedicated 
to the president of Millsaps College, Doctor Alexander Farrar Watkins. 
The first college generation that has come under his shaping hand now 
goes out, their academic work ended. He has wrought long enough as the 
head of Millsaps College for an estimate to be placed upon his work. 

It is the opinion of those that are in a position to judge that he has 
decidedly "made good," Two of the four chief buildings of the college 
have been rebuilt during his four-year term. The material facilities of the 
college are far superior to those he found when he began his present work, 
and his plans, as ijublicly announced, include the two buildings, a dormitory 
and a gymnasium, which the college urgently needs. Over half of the 
present faculty has been chosen on his recommendation. The salaries of 
the professors have been increased, the curriculum has been revised, and 
the attendance in the college proper has passed the previous high water 
mark. The college is coming, under his guidance, to the celebration of its 
quarter-centennial with assured position and great prospects. In his ad- 
ministration it has become a member of the Association of Colleges and 
Secondary Schools of the South, a recognition accorded to only one other 
institution in Mississippi. 

He has grown steadily with the faculty and students during his four 
years in his present office, and the dedication of this year's "Bobashela" 
is a token of the confidence and appreciation of the whole academic body 
of Millsaps College.

Class Prophecy 




(Ten Years Hence) 

'Tis the midnight hour that holds mystical lore 
When witches and elves may the future explore. 

O at the midnig-ht hour I stole softly into the glen, where the elves and other 
woodland sprites dwell. For I had sore need of magical arts and mystical 
lore, as my classmates, curious and impatient of time, wanted to know what 
life had in store for them. As I walked I heard little murmurs and low 
whispers, and finally I called softly to the voices. The Queen of the Wood- 
and Sprites answered my call and asked what I desired. Bowing low, I told her. 

She laughed a low silvery laugh that seemd to flow out and join the soft moonlight 
lying on the ferns and leafy trees. "That is easy, for I have my casket that contains 
voices of the future, and see, I will open it for you." 

As she softly raised the lid a small sweet voice began to tell of a pretty, cheerful 
home of a Little Minister and his wife. "I am the honeysuckle," it said, "and I grow 
all over the small white porch where the minister's wife, whom he calls 'Fannie,' sits 
and sews." I smiled for I could see Fannie Buck sitting on the porch and I could guess 
why she had planted honeysuckle. 

And then came the sweet-scented voice of the rose. "I can tell you of Henrietta. 
She is very happy and her home as sweet as 'ha(w)thorn' buds that ope in the month 
of May, for her life as College Professor's wife is a round of receptions and teas." 

"Cock-a-doo," and the clarion call of a rooster burst loudly from the casket. "I 
must tell you of my master. He is very fat and bald and jolly; he laughs and jokes 
all the time. He is a happy married man. Whenever he passes folks all say 'There 
goes Ross Capps, the happiest and most prosperous farmer in the country'." 

There was a slight rustling sound, and then, "I-ah-ah have a few words to say," 
slowly drawled a calm, deliberate voice, "ah- concerning A. W. Garraway. The long- 
winded arguments of his literary society especially fitted him for an impressive, con- 
vincing, successful insurance man. He has a large office of his own where he is boss 
and a nice big home where ah- some one else is Boss." 

"Well, is everybody married?" I inciuired aloud. 

"Oh, no," laughed a dandy old dandelion's voice, "there's a good looking and dig- 
nified bachelor in our town. He is a successful lawyer and is much angled for, every 
girl that meets him is simply 'Carraway'-ed with him." 

"Gracious, I wouldn't have thought that T. Luther would be a bachelor; now if he 
had said " 

"Whoo! whoo!" moaned the voice of an Owl. 

"Why I would not have been so surprised if he had said Bill O'Donnell," I stam- 
mered. 

"Bill O'Donnell? Do you mean Dr. William McGehee O'Donnell, A.B., D.D., Ph. 
D., President of Millsaps College? He is a very proper and dignified man, I assure you, 
as wise as myself, but he is not married — he still has that moustache you see and ■ — 
but there I must tell of Dr. Harrison. He is well initiated in matrimony for he has been 
married for years and years — but he still flirts on the sly. He is head of the mathe- 
matical department of a girls' college." 

I started to laugh at a funny thought I had just then, but was gently rebuked by 
a most dignified voice telline' of Annie Lester, Dean of a great Woman's College and 
an example of goodness and honor to hundreds of girls. 

"I always knew Annie would do something big," I mused. 

"Well," said a saucy little voice, "I can tell of her who was Mary JIcAlpin. She 
married an artist, I will not say what kind of an artist, but you have heard of the 
art of cutting hair I'm sure. She still has her own way and intends to have it first, 
last, and forevermore." 

"Mary, Mary, quite contrary," I hummed, "Mary and Frieda " 

"Frieda?" questioned a sweet fresh voice, "why Frieda married a skillful, cele- 
brated Doctor. She is a perfect beauty and as sensible and level headed as ever. 

Then "Chirp, chirp," and a little sparrow voice .sang, "chirp chee, Fm going to tell 



24 



you something- you couldn't g'uess, chee hee! Tliere's a little country storekeeper, happy 
as the Miller Dee. He whistles and sing- and feeds me cracker crumbs, chee hee! And 
his sign cut in front reads J. D. Crisler (A.B.)." 

Slo-wly there arose from the casket a rushing and whirling of great waters, telling 
of magnificent bridges, great canals and beautiful road ways, the works of W. B. 
Moore, who was fast becoming- one of the world's leading civil engineers. Then in a 
softer, happier tone I could hear them singing of a lovely lady and a pretty bungalow 
that were the chief joy and delight of this rising young man. 

A loud voice then boomed forth, demanding attention, "Ahem," then in a most 
impressive manner it began, "among the most influential men in the United States 
Senate are the 'Two Senators from Mississippi,' L. F. Hendrick looming tall in all 
Washington politics and society, and the Hon. W. C. McLean occupying the largest seat 
in the Senatorial Chamber; and it will not be long before the Presidential bee in his 
bonnet will openly begin to buzz." 

"Gracious," I sighed, "everybody seems to be accomplishing so much, I wish I could 
hear about me." 

"So you shall," came from the casket. "Far out " "Pax vobiscum," interrupted 

a monstrous I'tM" voice, "the midnight hour is almost gone, there is only a second or 'Iwo 
to say that Bishop Sessions is extremely busy, and getting along finely. He and Mrs. 
Bishop are doing a great work. Pax vobiscum." 

And the midnight hour with its mystical lore 
Closed tight the casket and passed on before.

Morn 



Look, now the mist fades into light, 

The darkness, shade by shade, has gone. 

The birds begin to take their flight, 
And greet the day with song. 

The sun peeps o'er the mountain ; 

The rays fall here and there. 
The dew from Nature's fountain 

Glistens everywhere. 

The trees bow with a gentle breeze. 

Bend gently forth and back again, , 

And thus give tidings to the world 

Of the first warm day of Spring. 

Julian Beck Feibelman, '18

NOTES ON THE TEAM 

Vick was easily the star of the team last year. His fielding record was perfect 
and his batting average was over 500. Williams, also, had a perfect fielding record, and 
his batting was always opportune. Many games were won by a timely hit from the 
big left fielder. His batting average was 357. Summer batted 333, while Smith's 
average was 289. All four of these men are with us this year as the nucleus for another 
championship team. 

Every man on the team last year worked hard and consistently; Smith's catching 
and the steady pitching of Taylor and Ward were especially commendable. Vick and 
Ward were selected for the all-Southern college team.

Time was when both were dearly bought but every young man and 
young woman of this age is blessed with an opportunity to acquire 

THE VERY BEST OF TRAINING 

at a cost within the reach of all. It is a fatal error to start out in life 

without the mental equipment along practical lines, 

an assurance of success. 

DRAUGHON'S 

PRACTICAL BUSINESS COLLEGE 

Is providing this important asset every day 

in the year to ambitious young men and 

young women from all parts of the South. 

We give thorough courses in 

BOOKKEEPING, BANKING, STENOGRAPHY, 
TELEGRAPHY, PENMANSHIP 

and all that go to properly prepare one for 
a profitable and useful life.
