Ztrou/on 



When you are a grandmother or a 
grandfather and are generally stiff and 
rusty, take this book as a stimulant. 
Although this is no patent medicine ad- 
vertisement, we are sure that if you will 
only read the book sympathetically the 
memory of your youth will be restored, 
your heart will be warmed by the 
friendly faces, and your spirit will be 
made stronger by the spirit of Millsaps, 
which you will find to crop out on some 
unexpected page. 

In the Senior sketches and in the fea- 
ture section we have, at times, ap- 
proached caricature, and have ventured 
to joke a little, knowing that no one is 
offended by friendly banter. 

We wish to express our thanks to 
those students who, by co-operation and 
sacrifice, have been responsible for that 
which is good in the '24 Bobashela.

Doctor A. F. Watkms, An Appreciation 

OR the past eleven years the roll of the Faculty, as it appeared in the "Bobashela," 
has been headed by the name of Doctor A. F. Watkins, as president of the college. 
This year it appears as President Emeritus. Therefore it is fitting that the 
"Bobashela" should contain an appreciation of the man who has guided the 
fortunes of this institution for more than a decade, and to recount the progress 
which our Alma Mater has made in the years of his presidency. 

When D. C. Hull resigned the presidency of Millsaps College in 1912 the 
trustees of the college had under consideration many distinguished men as 
possible successors to that high position. Among them was a man who had 
served with brilliant distinction in many responsible positions in the Methodist 
Church in Mississippi, and in the South at large, and who had rendered great service in the 
establishment of the college. It is inspiring to hear a distinguished banker of Mississippi, now a 
loyal trustee of the college, tell of the fine young minister who first roused the Methodists of 
Mississippi by his advocacy of the project of establishing a great Methodist college in our state. 
The trustees accordingly placed in charge of the college, Dr. A. F. Watkins, who now closes a 
notable administration. 

Dr. Watkins sprung from a family distinguished for ability and character and for services 
to the church and the state. His father, Doctor William H. Watkins, was one of the most 
eminent ministers of the Methodist Church in Mississippi and was a member of the historic 
General Conference which separated the Methodist Episcopal Church into the Northern and 
Southern branches. Many members of his family are now prominent in Mississippi and Louisiana. 
It is not within the purpose and scope of this article to recount the honors which have come 
to Dr. Watkins in the service of his church, but hardly any other Methodist has occupied so 
many high positions in the gift of his brethren, or has rendered so eminent or varied service to 
his church and the cause for which she stands. Only a few of the many high offices which he 
has filled with distinction can here be noted, but a sketch of him, though brief, would be 
incomplete without some account of his work as a minister. 

Coming of so staunch a Methodist family, it was to be expected that he would attend a 
Methodist college, and while but a youth he won distinction in Centenary College, at Jackson, 
Louisiana, the Alma Mater of so many distinguished men of Mississippi and Louisiana. Yanderbilt 
University was then in its mighty youth, and attracting the choicest young men of the South 
to obtain a type of education not equalled in the South, except at the University of Virginia. 
Among the remarkable group of young men who attended Vanderbilt, one of the most promising 
was young A. F. Watkins, drawn thither from Centenary by the fame of the new seat of 
learning and his own steadfast determination to be content with none but the best. Among the 
ablest of that fine band, he was distinguished by his personal charm, his lofty character, his 
scholarship, and his devotion to Christian ideals. 

From the beginning of his ministry in the Mississippi Conference, to which he came on 
graduation from Vanderbilt, he advanced steadily and rapidly. He filled the best appointments 
with great success, and soon became known beyond the bounds of his home conference. He 
frequently represented his conference in the councils of the church at large, and was as eminent 
among the leaders who assembled at the General Conference of Southern Methodism and the 
Ecumenical Council of World-wide Methodism as he was in his home conference. Among 
the many positions of honor which he held were these: Field agent of the Superannuate 
Endowment Fund of Southern Methodism, delegate to the Ecumenical Council, member of the 
Board of Missions of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South; seven times delegate to the General 
Conference, president of the Methodist Educational Association, and secretarv of the General 
Conference for sixteen years. It is a notable fact that, as his father was a member of the 
General Conference whose action divided Methodism into two bodies, so Doctor A. F. Watkins 
was a member of the Joint Commission on Unification which labored so earnestlv for several 
years to perfect plans for bringing together the two great branches of Methodism. 

To the presidency of Millsaps College, Doctor Watkins brought many eminent gifts. He 
had been president of Whitworth College, field agent for the establishment of Millsaps College, 
and a trustee of the institution for twenty-three years. He was a trained and accurate scholar, 




Bobashela ^y^^mm^^^? 19 2 4 



H 



of great personal charm and social gifts, a master of English, a man of striking presence on 
the platform and in the pulpit, able to deal on even terms with men of the first order of 
ability, and habituated to the management of large affairs. In addition to high ideals in 
scholarship and in morality, he illustrated something frequently lacking, but eminently desirable 
in the education of young men — the graces and finish of the best and most enlightened society. 
"Manners maketh man," says an old English author. It is not a small thing that the president of 
Millsaps College should be a man, not only of scholarship and integrity, but that he should 
be a man of urbanity and an illustration of the graces that adorn life. Those who have known 
Doctor Watkins most intimately will bear the readiest testimony to the statement that no petty 
or unworthy sentiment ever found utterance by his lips, or showed in his life. 

The advancement of the college duung his administration speaks for itself. When he 
became president the college had no dormitories for college students, as distinguished from 
those of the academy, except the "Cooper House," an old frame building badly in need of paint 
and repairs. Now there are two large brick dormitories equipped with every modern convenience. 
The main building burned down in the second year of Doctor Watkins' administration. In its 
stead promptly rose the present administration building — fine, commodious, and costing more 
than twice as much as the building which was burned. If it had to be erected now it would 
cost four times as much. The dormitory of the Preparatory School burned in the first year of 
his presidencv. On its site stands a restored building better than the old one. A book store and 
a "hut" for the Y. W. C. A. have been added to the plant of the college. The old library, 
built on a marl foundation which has shifted and so rendered the building unsafe, is to be 
replaced bv a library costing more than three times the sum spent on the old one. The whole 
of the negotiations for the rebuilding of the library has been conducted by Doctor Watkins, 
who deserves the credit for the unusual action of the Carnegie Board in replacing with a better 
structure the library building which we have lost. 

The academic advancement of the college has been notable in the period of Doctor Watkins' 
presidencv. When he came the faculty of the college consisted of eight men, including the 
president, who taught some classes. When he withdrew the faculty had grown to the number 
of seventeen. In the first year of his presidency the students numbered 144 in the Department 
of Arts and Sciences. In the last year of his presidency they numbered 329. In the first year 
of his administration the college had an endowment of $300,000.00; when he retired it had 
doubled that sum. The college was admitted to the Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools 
of the Southern states in 1912, the first year of his presidency. It then became officially recognized 
as of the highest rank by all the standardizing bodies of the nation. Two of the men whose 
college training was received under his presidency have been elected Rhodes Scholars from 
Mississippi. 

In choosing his faculty he kept in mind a certain type of man, and so succeeded in establishing 
a singularly unified body of men as instructors in the college. Of the sixteen professors in the 
college when he retired, he had selected fourteen. Among, them there is co-ordinated effort for a 
commond end, but no jealousies and no jars. After he had chosen them he stood by them, and 
consistently and persistently did all in his power to advance their salaries and their efficiency. 
His interest in the college remains unabated. 

One thing he accomplished which has not yet borne its full fruitage of success, but which 
will mean much to the college in later years: In company with Mr. W. M. Buie he obtained 
from the General Education Board the conditional gift of $100,000.00 to the endowment fund 
of the college, given to insure a raise of salaries for the faculty, provided the college obtains 
$250,000.00 from some other source. When that sum is raised the endowment will be three times 
what it was when Doctor Watkins became the official head of Millsaps College. 

The School of Education was established in his administration, and has attained a high rank 
among such departments. The W. S. F. Tatum School of Religious Education was established 
with an endowment of $100,000.00 and two professors, which gives Millsaps an enviable ran* 
in religious education. 

Such is the record of the administration of Doctor Watkins. Of course, others have aided, 
but he has directed. And now he returns to his first love — the pastorate — enriched by the stored 
wisdom of many fruitful years, upheld by the I'nseen Friend, who has been the source of his 
strength, and accompanied by the charming and gracious wife, who has been a blessing to him 
and to all others who have known her. We anticipate for him multiplied usefulness in his 
labor for his Master. May he have many souls for his hire, and may his path grow brighter 
until he passes into that sunset which is a dawn. 

We iv /m kneia him sn Inn// semi with him our admiration and affection.

This is our perfectly harmless boomerang. Ross 
thought he could leave us and go to the country 
to teach the natives, but Millsaps, a Master's 
Degree and an instructorship in chemistry were 
more attractive. Of course, he can never fill Mr. 
Patch's place; but, when we consider his youth 
and that he is a devotee of puns, we must admit 
that he does remarkably well and succeeds in 
persuading everyone to like him. Honestly, we 
really do like him, though there's no reason why 
we shouldn't.

Coach Ike, in one short year, has conducted 
himself in such a way that Millsaps is proud to 
award him his Master's Degree. To characterize 
and immortalize him on these pages, we would 
say that he is an "athleta superbus," whose 
knowledge meant much to the Majors, a talker 
whose flow of words would startle Cicero, if he 
could hear him, and a prince of good fellows. 
He has but one great fault — he forsakes us even- 
week-end for Yazoo City.

No matter whether we win or whether we lose, 
come what may, this "smiling pitcher" smiles 
and pitches on. His is the smile that won't come 
off. And while he pitches, he says not a word. 
Probably this is because his home is the Deaf 
and Dumb Institute. But don't ever think he's 
a dumb-bell or never talks; just put him in that 
green Jordan and you'll see. He's the "Long 
Boy." He just reaches up and puts a basketball 
in the goal.

His belief that "he that tooteth not his own horn 
doth not have it tooted," and "it pays to adver- 
tise," coupled with his artistic ability, made him 
a fine athletic advertising manager. In addition 
to his college course, he is taking a very extensive 
and intensive campus course, which may be use- 
ful later. She drives a Hudson.

We know "Jelly" is a forest product, because 
he does things on the sly, principally courting. 
The improvement that he desires most for Mill- 
saps is the installation of mirrors and a beauty 
parlor in the chapel so that he can amuse him- 
self by combing and plastering his hair and 
getting a manicure during the exercises. We 
wonder how he got his nickname. Will some one 
tell us how "Jelly" ever had time to become such 
a "shark" in chemistrv.

When Triplett first came to Millsaps he had 
the surprised, scared look of one from the wilds 
who is suddenly thrust into civilization. Imme- 
diately on entering school he showed his mettle, 
however, by choosing as his heroes, Fred Lotter- 
hos and Mack Swearingen. For three whole 
years "Trip," under their inspiration, devoted 
himself to his studies, and consequently his grades 
are to be envied. However, these heroes of his 
earlv college day* have been eclipsed by the 
light of love which, we think, has its origin in 
Belhaven College. The transformation i> astound-

hope that the victim will ever be restored to his

"Ugly" came to Millsaps from S. P. U. If they

asked to list the three most outstanding facts 
about Mr. W. M. Nelson, our answer would be

i. Consistent love for a Belhaven lassie. 

2. Ability as a ball player.

hands (in a game of cards), and he winds up 
his playful career by playing business manager

such ambition ! However, in spite of her zeal 
for her chosen career, she has still found time to 
support one corner of the V. W. triangle. And 
she can talk vociferously about what "a really 
wonderful place Montreat is" and "I can't begin

that the quietest people talk enthusiastically on

caused by the night before with the same crea-

His only chance is this: That some pretty girl 
marry him and stir up his slumbering ambition. 
This, with his ability to make friends and with

History of tke Class of 1924 

'S the flower of the youth and beauty of Millsaps College, which is known 
to an admiring world as the Class of '24, files about the campus in the 
last sad rites of graduation, a question will doubtless come to those who 
behold them. Eyes opened wide with wonder, head bowed in sign 
of respect, the beholder will ask, "Whence came these, or have they 
been always thus?" And well may it be questioned, if they are here 
through the slow working out of organic evolution gradually arriving 
at the present state of contrast with the lowly, simian creatures who were their 
Freshmen ancestors ; or, on the other hand, did they greet the light of day full grown 
and richly endowed, as Minerva sprang in her full glory from the head of Jupiter? 
September of 1920 came, and with it the group of ambitious youths and maidens 
who were to make up the now expiring Class of '24. An epic might be composed 
on their deeds; their glories might be celebrated in lyric verse. But the spirit of 
what they knew and that they accomplished may be expressed by an incident in the 
life of one young Frosh. On his trip home at the Christmas-tide, this tribute was 
paid, by his paternal ancestor: "My son, you're a good deal wiser now than you 
ever will be again." And so were they all — all Freshmen then. 

Came another year, and another, and the Class of '24 kept their feet on the 
ladder, and their eyes to the goal. They increased in knowledge of themselves and 
the world, grew in favor, and acquired experience. And as time passed those who, 
weak of purpose, lagged behind were outstripped, for no seat is reserved for laggards ; 
in the race those who survived were the brave and the strong, and those who had firm 
parents to shove them forward to a brilliant finish, and those who were prospered 
by fortune. 

As the group strove and struggled against the idleness and the seductive voice of 
pleasure which opposed their progress, they had an effect upon the age in which they 
lived. But as they influenced their time, so, too, perhaps, their time may have made 
some impress upon them. Born in the golden Autumn of 1920, when their country 
was at the peak of wealth and reckless abandon, none would have desired these infants 
to grow up in seclusion from the intoxication of the day. Hence, they plunged head- 
long into life as well as study, disporting themselves with the vigor of innocence in 
the waves of pleasure and the mountains of toil. They burned the midnight gasoline 
and oil. The time was short, which it took for some to know a lot. 

Flappers, well, that's what the class has little else but, except a few lads who 
inclined to the sheik ideal. On the feminine side of the house the Co-eds of '24 
were swept with an epidemic of the automobile complex. The ravages of tin's plague 
were great and its heavy touch has not yet completely vanished. But if this worthy

group ever touched a gingerly foot to the path of dalliance, it was that their usefulness 
might be increased. They have come back to earth, so that they stand now with their 
feet on the groud, while their souls play in the higher realms of the spirit. 

But let the past entomb these ghosts of the past, for only the present counts. The 
Class of '24 is ready to declare, with the Little Corporal, "I am my own ancestors," 
and is willing to stand and fall on its own merits. All the future lies before them, 
waiting to be cut like a birthday cake and divided among the forty-six members. 
They stand now astride the prostrate form of the college curriculum, a valiant foe 
finally conquered; just at the threshold, though, of a greater and stronger foe — life 
itself. And they will be heard from again, unless the earth gets behind a tree, and hides.

Arch 



rcnusa 

Ily Rufus Terral 



At the foot of a hill, in a green-gladed glen, 
Where the red leaves bespeckle the ground, 

Is a spring that goes tinkle with mirthfulness when 
Out of darkness it comes with a bound. 

No less red than the leaves are the waters which pour 
From its mouth — and they joyfully seek 

With gregarious gladness the nearness of more, 
As they tumble beyond to the creek. 

Years gone by saw its waters flow down to the sands — 

Years gone by saw the savage of old 
Falling down at this spring on his knees and his hands, 

Putting lips to its surface of gold. 

Then he tasted and loved it, and tasted again. 

Drinking deep of its heart, as it sped 
Up from underground lakes stored by falling of rain, 

Scorched by sunlight — and so it was red. 

Then he named it Archusa, because it was sweet, 

As it fell over rocks greenly mossed, 
As it hurried and scurried with frolicksome feet, 

'Til it merged with the creek and was lost. 



luthor's Note: "Archusa" is an Indian word meaning "sweet water." This name was 
given to a sulphur spring situated a mile south of a small Mississippi town, and this poem is a 
fairly accurate description of Archusa Spring as it is today.

Junior Class History 




L RE, they're wcarin' o' th' green," whistled an important Soph, as eight 
little Freshfes, unconscious of the effect they were producing, filed 
timorously into chapel, each wearing a brand new sweater of vivid green. 
And thereupon was the color of '25 chosen. Not only was green destined 
to be significant of the Freshmen, but our own particular Professor Dan 
Patch (who was imported from Florida to help drill trig, into our 
resisting head) liked the color so well that one morning he appeared a 
symphony in green. The budding trees formed an appropriate background for "George 
Munroe's" green suit, green tie, pale green shirt, greenish felt hat and green socks 
and shoes. 

Boy, bvit he created a stampede — to the front windows to watch the stately 
approach. And sad to relate, he refused to wear this outfit again, in spite of the 
extravagant admiration of the Freshmen. 

This Spring the campus course was especially good, and some of our imprudent 
Frosh had to be reminded by Dr. Alex that "young ladies and young gentlemen must 
not sit in automobiles." Because, you see, "In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly 
turns" — to the young ladies, of course! 

The feature of the Freshman year was the banquet which we (at the point of being 
tallied) graciously tendered the Juniors. And the feature of the banquet was the 
consternation of our would-be dignified president, "Ben" (Turpin) Galloway, when 
Addison Hall, the magician, nonchalantly pulled a long string of weiners from the 
former's pocket. 

Among the notables of 1920-21 were Shanks, who looked like Ichabod Crane and was 
inseparable from his red and white stocking cap; Polly and Madeline, the official 
flappers; Bill Watkins, owner of the biggest feet in Hinds County; and last, but not 
least, Ever-ready Mack Watson, so-called because, two weeks after he deserted Crystal 
Springs to become the star of the Millsaps firmament, he knew the name, address, 
telephone number, and qualification of every pretty girl in Jackson and was always 
on the job as a living date directory for the college boys. 

So our Freshman year ended, and as one "ed" remarked upon leaving the dormitory, 
suitcase in hand, "Lord, they all say your Freshman year in college is the happiest 
you'll ever spend, but looks like to me we've been the goats all right. But gee, haven't 
we had some fun! Say, bud, be here two days ahead nex' year and let's get the 
Freshies!" 

Next year we ex-Freshies were showing off to fine advantage. We met the 
trains, engineered baffled youngsters to the Insane Asylum, Blind Institute, and such 
places, for the college, sold them bath tickets, initiated them into Alpha Pi Sigma ; 
and, in other words, rattled those poor boys until life wasn't worth a street car ride.

Having lectured us, as usual, on the impropiety of young men and ladies sitting 
together in cars, on the Major's tomb, or on the front steps, somebody took pity and 
gave us such amusing green benches (amusing because when one leaned back he 
suddendly turned over), and the Class of '25 took possession. 

Spring holidays! And weren't we Sophs wild over the idea of going home for a 
few days — then Commencement with all its gaieties, exams., and home. 

"Congratulations, Sophomores!" read letters from Dr. Key, our new president, in 
the Summer of 1923. "Congratulations for what?" we wondered. "You are now 
a Junior," continued the letters, and urged us to come back to school and graduate, 
so we straggled in, one by one, and chose Stump Young to lead us. Then the football 
team followed suit by electing him captain. 

The Junior Class is proud of being the largest in the history of Millsaps, and 
next year — why, just watch our smoke!

Sophomore Class History 

HE moving finger writes, and having writ, moves on — to be sure it does 
— Old Omar knew! And "26" is moving on — with as much history 
before as behind us — yet we stop a moment to think; and lo, two whole 
years have gone by — the shortest, happiest years, perhaps, that we have 
ever spent. 

Freshman? Can we remember that far back — just last year? Quite 
vividly- Oh me! Never-to-be-forgotten days — (and nights). Weren't 
we positively uncouth? Sap heads? And wouldn't we be different if we could live 
it all over again? From the pinnacle of the Soph's polish and charm we can see our 
faults too well; how blind we were then — mere children leaving our mother's apron 
strings, even packing a grip — and forsaking home, comfort, loved ones, to begin life 
more or less independently and unprotected midst strangers, who were peculiarly 
capable of causing us various pains, worry and uncomfortableness. A new system 
altogether — and adjustments forthwith began for the fresh high school products, 
whose former names and fames crashed unnoticed about their ears. You remember? 
Insignificant, weren't you? And yet about the most important thing a'tall. 

We were a great, grand class — brilliant in our studies, outstanding in good looks 
(both masculine and feminine), especially beloved by our new professors, and quite 
cock-sure in everything. We quickly learned all the main points of interest about 
the college — got everybody else sized up — decided who rated what, and enjoyed 
ourselves very noticeably. We had a football team — embryonic stars, all — a baseball 
team — quite a snappy bunch; and even our president, "Chick," chewed tobacco. 
Perfect angels we — no flappers — though we all had wings. So quiet and unobtrusive, 
diligent workers, none lazy. In fact, we lived and moved in an Ideal Freshman 
World, or do I remember correctly? 

And thus, by some mysterious way, we find ourselves a few steps higher — a year 
has passed — to where? We see a motley, uncomely crowd of childish beings in our 
old place. Are we truly Sophomores? Then snip! Ha, ha! And the Freshman 
worms are bald. "We will repay,'' saith the Class of '26. 

It all seems the same, and yet, just a little different. We make new resolutions, 
plan and work — we play and loaf; we do our duty and fall down on our job — and 
slowly we pass on. It all melts into a haze of sports and fun, of parties, exams., joys 
and sorrows, friends, and days of work. It's college; we are ending our second year, 
and are preparing for what is to be our work in God's great world. "26," we've broken 
even — two and two. Shall we make the best of our failures and success in the past? 
Shall we attain our goal? 

Yea — verily! Here's to the future of '26.

History of Freshman Class 




Chapter One 

ND lo it came to pass in the first year of the reign of David of the House 
of Key that the king issued a proclamation saying, "Send your sons and 
daughters to dwell with me in the land of the Majorites, that they may 
get knowledge and instruction, and I will shew kindness unto them, and 
they will wax strong in body and in mind." 

2. And many hearing, obeyed the words of the king, and came and 
dwelt in the land of the Majorites. 

3. And they found the land Bowing with women and song. 

4. And it was especially pleasing in their sight by reason of a mirthful people called 
the Femmites. 

5. Now the Femmites adorned themselves according to the law of custom and 
painted their faces and cut off their hair as a token of homage to their lords and 
masters, the Majorites. 

6. Now these sojourners coveted the land of the Majorites, and they said one 
to another, "Let us possess this land, for it is a goodly land and pleasing in our sight" ; 
and they banded themselves together and called themselves the Jellybites of Homines 
Virides. 

7. Now this land of the Majorites was ruled by a tribe known thereabouts for 
their wisdom and knowledge called the tribe Homines Sophomores. 

8. And the Homines Sophomores beheld the deeds of the Jellybites, and they 
were wroth, and they said, "Behold this people, how they overrun the earth and 
fill it up, and see how they gambol before the Femmites like lambs in the Spring-time." 

Chapter Two 

1. Then they called in the wise men of the tribe and took counsel, and they 
did take the Jellybites and did shave their heads and did beat them and did turn 
them aloose before the Femmites for sport. 

2. Then there arose laughter and shouts of derision throughout the place. 

3. And word came to the great king how they were served. 

4. And he was grived and hid his face and rent his garments and three days he 
wailed and he said, "My children, my children, I am brought down in shame; my 
enemies will rejoice and be glad." 

5. Then Jacob, his adviser, of the House of Lin, counseled with him and he 
took courage and made a decree, saying, "Let none of the Jellybites be troubled ; woe 
unto him who harms even so much as a hair of their heads." 

6. Still some of the bold ones of the Homines Sophomores vexed the Jellybites 
with straps, whereupon the wrath of the king fell upon them and they departed from 
out of the land. 

7. And peace reigned. 

Chapter Three 
1. In the fourth month of this year a pestilence called examination visited the 
land and great was the destruction in the land of the Majorites. 



61

2. And the good king did counsel them, saying, "Be of good cheer, for the true 
workman is not ashamed of his handiwork." 

3. Now the hair of the Jellybites grew and they took to themselves the ways 
of the inhabitants of the place. 

4. Again in the sixth month, and also in the ninth month of the year, the plague 
swept down on the people, and they were sorely pushed; and many were laid low by it. 

5. Now, at the end of that year, those that escaped from out the land of the 
pestilence were exceedingly glad, and they became puffed up; and they said, one to 
another, "We that escaped, escaped because there was great wisdom in us." Wherefore 
they were ready to become members of the tribe Sophomores. 

6. And the king admonished them to fill their storehouses in the year of greenness 
and plenty against the lean years which were in store for them.

H. F. "Zimmie" ZiMOSKl, Direr/or of Athletics 
When "Zimmie" arrived at Millsaps he faced a Herculean task. The best that 
can be said, is that he had an even start, as he had nothing. Material and equipment 
were short, and the prestige of the Majors was nil. He smiled and "waded into his 
task," and he achieved things, as is attested by his popularity in Jackson and throughout 
the state. He is a hard worker and knows, to use a slang phrase, "his stuff" and

Dr. B. E. "Broncho" Mitchell, Faculty Chairman of Athletics 
When Dr. Key was promoted," Broncho" was selected to fill his place as faculty 
chairman of athletics. That he made good is attested by the fact that the football 
season did not close with a financial deficit. 

COACH I. H. Hollixgsworth, Assistant Director of Athletics 
Coach Ike took charge of the varsity line and made a stone wall of it. Although 
it was his first year, his ever-ready encouragement and his magnetic personality won 
the admiration and respect of, not only the Majors, but the entire student body as well.

Football Review, 1923 

From the ranks of the novices to a place among the teams that are dangerous competitors, is 
the progress of the Majors in intercollegiate football in the four years since their initial venture 
on the gridiron in 1920. Teams of 1920 and 1921 fared badly at the hands of their opponents, 
but in 1922 those who expected a walk-away victory over the Majors found one of the hardest 
fighting teams they encountered. 

In 1923 the team that represented Millsaps won signal recognition during the season, because 
of its fighting qualities and rugged defense. Viewed in the light of victories won, the team 
apparently was weaker than the preceding year. This, however, is far from the truth. Critics 
said that it was a strong team — the strongest Millsaps had ever had — but a "jinx" was ever 
pursuing the valiant eleven of the past year. Injuries to several members of the squad kept 
important men out of the line-up in nearly every game, and naturally the team was weakened. 

Two outstanding features of the season should be noted. The Majors scored on A. & M. 
by the use of straight football, though the Aggies beat them into submission bv use of a number 
of substitutes. The other outstanding feature of the season was the Thanksgiving tie with the 
Mississippi College eleven. It was the result of this game that raised the Majors to the ranks 
of elevens that are in the "fight" and worthy foes. The Choctaws had failed only once before 
in the season to score, and in that they got a draw with a team of much higher calibre. 

Glancing back over the four past years and noting the progress, gives ample grounds for 
the prediction that the Majors of the coming years will rank with the best in the Southland. 

To Coach H. F. Zimoski goes the credit for the wonderful showing, and with him to direct 
the strategy of the Majors, it seems but plausible to look for greater things. 

The results in the nine games of 1923 are as follows: 

Clarke Memorial o; Millsaps o 

A. & M. College 28 ; Millsaps 6 

Mississippi Normal o; Millsaps 31 

Birmingham-Southern 7; Millsaps 6 

Louisiana Tech 20; Millsaps o 

Howard 14; Millsaps 6 

Hendrix College 25; Millsaps o 

Spring Hill 6; Millsaps 7 

Mississippi College o; Millsaps o

Jimmie Campbell, Captain and End 

As captain of the Major eleven in 1923, Jimmie displayed ability as a 
leader, and as a player he was in a class by himself. In losing him, the 
Majors are losing the services of a valuable man. His ability as a player 
and his unfailing courage won for him a host of friends and admirers. 
He played for four years and was in every game during his time in 
college. 



Dudley D. "Dud" Cllley, Center 

"Dud" is one of those kind of fellows who put 
their whole soul in the task at hand, and most 
any of those who played opposite him during 
1923 will testify to the truth of the statement. 
He served faithfully and never failed to give 
his best. "Dud" is another Major who is being 
placed on the retired list, having served four 
years. 




T. M. "Day" Davenport, Tackle 

"Dav" won't go down in history as a brilliant lineman, but he never 
failed to give his best. His three seasons have been marked by faithful- 
ness and steadiness. He was always ready to do his bit and never 
flinched.

J. W. "Stump" Young, Halfback 

"Stump" has the honor of leading the Majors in 1924, and if he plays 
as hard as a captain as he did for other captains, he is going to be 
chosen for All-State honors.. He says he is going to captain the best 
team in Mississippi in 1924, which means he believes the Majors will 
cop the state title. If he is given the support that he has always given 
other captains, his prediction will not be short of right. 




N. C. "Slim" Young, Halfback 

To look at "Slim," one would never pick him, 
as a line plunger, but his ability to worm his 
way through a line is almost uncanny. "Slim'' 
improves each year, and 1924 should be his best. 
He was never known to quit, and when he tackles 
a man the man is sure to hit the ground. 



James "Red'' Plummer, Guard 

Ability to stick in the face of obstacles won "Red" a regular berth 
on the varsity. He had all kinds of discouragement during his first year, 
but stuck to training. He has developed into one of the outstanding guards 
in the state, being mentioned for All-State honors. Smashing the offense 
is his specialty.

Football 



V. E. "Granma" Chalfant, Halfback 

When Coach wanted a man to go in and make a gain, he was 
certain to send "Granma" to the front, and "Granma" always delivered. 
He is a fighting parson, and the "devil" is certainly going to have some 
scrap when "Granma" goes into action, if his work on the football field 
may be taken as a criterion. 



W. A. "Cyrus" Bealle, Fullback 

Defensively, "Cyrus" is a terror. He goes intc 
a play with every ounce of himself, and when he 
hits a man something is going to fall. "Cyrus' 
played the season through under conditions thai 
would have caused a man made of other thai 
sterling qualities to quit. 




Chester A. "Chick" Nelson, Halfback 

"Chick" was the only Major to be chosen for All-State honors. The 
jinx got "Chick" before the season opened, but he stuck and gave every- 
thing he had when called on. He is a threat man of rare quality and 
has all the qualities necessary to make a star.

Harold "Pole" Webb, Tackle 

"Pole's" strength and fighting heart made him feared by his every 
opponent. He is a man who smears every play that comes in his 
direction, and never failed to open a hole when called on. Webb is 
destined .to do great things for Millsaps on the gridiron. 




Hugh "Coot" Williford, Fullback 

"Coot" played his first year as a Major in 
1923, but under fire he displayed the qualities of 
a natural football player. His line smashes tore 
opposing lines to fragments, and on the defense 
he was a demon. He is a tackier that hits with 
the power of a catapult. 



Charles F. "Bigun" Henley, Guard 

Ordinary words would fail to adequately portray the ability of "Bigun" 
to stem the tide. One has but to glance at the accompanying picture to 
know that he has the power necessary to smash through either offensively 
or defensively. He was one of the mainstays in the line of the Majors.

Shelton "Little Top" Reeves 
End 

When it came to smashing interference or going 
down under a punt, "Little Top" was always 
in the swim. He also knew how to snag a pass 
out of the air and to dive low and hard. He is 
one of the strong bets for the 1924. varsity. 



J. E. "Bax" Baxter 
Tackle and Guard 

"Zimmie" used Baxter as his relief man during 
the past season, sending him to both tackle and 
guard. To be sent in was "Bax's" real joy, and 
he always filled the bill. He is going to make 
going tough for someone in the next two years. 



Randolph "Kirk" Kirkpatrick 

Tackle and Guard 

Just a Freshman, but "Kirk" made his presence 
known, and demonstrated ability that kept him 
from being a continual bench-warmer. With the 
past year's experience, "Kirk" will certainly make 
things hum in 1924. The varsity line will agree 
that he is "some man." 



Theodore E. "Ted" Motlow 

Guard and Half 

Ability to hang a toe under the oval and send 
it soaring into enemy territory made "Ted" one 
of the most valuable men on the varsity. He 
started the year at guard, but his punting took 
him to the backfield, where, as a half, he made 
good.

Clyde "At" Atkins 
End 

Sent in as a sub in the La Tech game, "At" 
made good in a walk, and was in practically 
every game thereafter. He is like a flash on get- 
ting down the field, and doesn't hesitate to leave 
his feet to get his man. 



J. R. "Jobie" Harris 
Halfback 

"Jobie" was another Major that won recogni- 
tion in the La. Tech game. He was in every 
play, and showed ability. He is going to make 
a valuable man in 192+. ' He lacked only expe- 
rience to win a regular berth this past season. 




Robert J. Ham 
End 

Ham demonstrated unusual ability, and when 
called on, put everything he had into the game. 



T. Bascomb "Bo" Holloman 

Quarterback 

"Bo" is undoubtedly the smallest intercollegiate 
quarter in the state, but what he lacked in size 
he made up in ability. He is a threat man — 
punts, passes and runs. His work in the Choctaw- 
Major game will long be remembered.

Basketball in 1923 



Compared with the preceding season, the 1923 campaign of the Majors was indeed 
a brilliant one. The team won eight of the sixteen games played, including the loss 
to Furman in the S. I. A. A. tournament. 

The outstanding feature of the season was the capture of the annual Choctaw- 
Major series of four games, the Purple and White gaining a decision in three. The 
previous year the Majors won only one in six games. 

As was the case with the football team, Coach H. F. Zimoslci had instilled the 
spirit of "fight to the last" in the basketball machine, and they never knew when they 
were licked. They were known as a team that always fought uphill. 

It was this ability to fight back that carried them to victories over seemingly 
stronger teams.

Freshman Basketball 

With the coming of an assistant coach, the Freshman teams were formed and 
regular schedules arranged. The Freshman basketball team of 1924 showed much 
promise early in the season, but owing to the fact that the season was not yet closed 
when the Annual copy must be mailed, no results of games can be given. Scribes 
in future years will write of the feats accomplished by the Junior Majors of 1924. 

The personnel of the Freshman squad for 1924 is as follows: Coach, Ike Hollings- 
worth; forwards, Blackwell, Byrd and Stevens ; centers, Vance and Williams; guards, 
Brooks, Church and Henley.

Girls' Basketball 



Co-ed athletic activities at Millsaps were not encouraged by the faculty, but the 
Co-eds of 1922-23 went forward with their plans to begin intercollegiate competition in 
basketball. The results of the season were not encouraging, so far as victories on 
the court were concerned, but the interest of the faculty was aroused. The net 
result was that Miss Sarah Dickinson, a graduate of Alabama Woman's College, was 
secured as physical director for the Co-eds and as coach of the Co-ed Major Sextette. 

Under Miss Dickinson's tutelage the Co-ed Majors have shown a marked improve- 
ment, and when the recapitulation of the 1924 season is made, it will show the girls 
have begun to taste the joys of victory. 

The 1924 squad is composed of the following: 

Miss Sarah Dickinson, coach; Elise McCallam (captain) and Irene Simpson, 
forwards; Emmie Lowe and Monteal Watson, guards; Cynthia Thompson and 
Magnolia Simpson, centers; substitutes, Pat Eikins, Evalina Allen and Bernice Miller.

Baseball in 1923 

If one is inclined to believe in spirits, fortune telling and such things, 
he will no doubt believe that the Majors of 1923 were beset by a "jinx" 
throughout the baseball season, as not one game did the Majors win. 

The "jinx" is not offered as an alibi, but even the worst team wins 
occasionally; but the Majors did not win a game. 

Many games were apparently won, but always something happened, 
and the Major machine crumpled like tissue paper. 

Each man gave his best. We are proud to have a team that is 
"game" in defeat. 

Prospects are brighter for 1924, and in the future there is not likely 
to be a repetition of a winless season. 

More and better material is in sight, and the Majors should see 
better days. In fact, some are expecting them to be of championship 
calibre within the next two or three years.

Track, 1923 

Track and field events for the 
Majors in 1923 were few, but it 
was in track that they showed 
the greatest efficiency, winning 
the dual meet from the Choc- 
taws, 25 to 20. 

N. C. Young, who led the 
sprinters and vaulters, took in- 
dividual honors of the meet, 
with three first places to his 
credit. Willie Poole crowded 

m with two first places to his 
credit. " Atkins, Burks, High- 
tower and Bailey deserve special 
mention. 

The annual meet with Mis- 
sissippi College has been won by 
the Majors both years that it 
has been held. 

Young has been re-elected as 

captain, and early this year pre- 

icted the third straight win for 

the Majors over the Choctaws 

in the dual meet.

Tennis 

Wielders of the racquet at Millsaps have been making a creditable showing in the 
past few years. In the Spring of 1923 the Majors' doubles team, composed of "Fish" 
Donald and E. M. Chatoney, went into the finals in the state tournament held at 
A. and M. and extended the A. and M. team to take the title. 

In singles, "Fish" defeated his opponent in the semi-finals. The final had to be 
postponed on account of lack of time, and several things interfered to keep "Fish" 
and the Ole Miss representative from meeting to play off the title round. 

Mississippi College was defeated in both the singles and the doubles matches 
between the Majors and the Choctaws. 

Hunt and Chatoney are the standard-bearers for the present year. They defeated 
the Choctaw team with ease in the Fall matches.

Sonnet 

By Rufus Terrai. 

Lord, let my tongue no word unthinking speak 

Whose sound would any wish of Thine defile; 
Or bring a blush to any modest cheek, 

Or cause young laughing lips to cease to smile; 
And may the words I say be not more pure 

Than thoughts which rise within my secret heart. 
Let embryonic evil not endure ; 

Lord, set me back to make a fairer start. 
May words of mine and deed:; of mine, great God, 

He worthy of Thine earthly son and heir; 
May this dim path whereon ray feet have trod 

Lead to Thy city beautiful and fair. 
Lord, keep me safe until that moment when 

Mv call comes clear. In Jesus' name. Amen. 



The King s Highway 

By Rufus Terrai, 

A long, straight road winds on and on, until the coming night 

Bedims the ending of the trail, and hides it from the sight. 

A bitter road, King Albert, and to travel all its length 

You needed help, and found in God the power to give you strength. 

A road of thorns, defeat, and death, yet at its end you found 
The honor, praise, and glory that in worthy deeds abound ; 
Reward for faithful service, for the trust you'd not betray. 
Hail, Albert, worthy traveler, upon the King's Highway! 

And though my birth be humble, though my destiny obscure, 
I'd keep my heart untarnished, keep m\ honor ever pure. 
Would have my true convictions stronger than my fear of blame, 
That I may think or do no deed would make mv soul feel shame. 



Like Albert, 1 would tread the path of Honor and of Right, 
Which now before me rolls apace into the shadowed night; 
Lord, hear Thy loving servant in this earnest prayer, I pray; 
Make me a worthy traveler, too, upon the King's Highwaj !

"The Poor— A Song 



A willow tree, at eventide, 

Beside a limpid woodland pool, 

Beholds itself thrice glorified 
In waters cool. 

A dainty deer comes down to drink; 

She sees herself reflected there, 
And quivers, frightened, on the brink, 

At grace so fair. 



A snowy lily bends and sways 

Above the pool ; the sky, dark blue — 

The dying sun's last brilliant rays 
Reflected, too. 

The silent song of night sounds clear; 

The words come faint across the dew 
The pool is you, my dear, my dear — 

The pool is you. 



Sonnet 



Darkness breeds Light. The water lily's head 
Holds high above the stagnant, slimy waste 

Of some forsaken, marsh-like river bed. 

But there the sun's hot vivid rays have chased 
The shapes of dark; have all unfair erased, 

And with their glow the place have worthy made 
Of such a flower which this dull spot has graced. 
So sweet it blooms! So trusting, unafraid, 
With child-like faith that may not be gainsaid. 

Yet it will crumple — die, and be forgot, 
For Beauty never overlong has stayed. 

Such, then, must be the final, fated lot 

Of all of those who bear the bitter blight 
Of being sons of Darkness, born to Light. 

Phollies of a Philosopher 

Under SUMMER'S sky, on a warm McKNIGHT, 

When the winds blew sweet and the moon shone WHITE, 

By a HATHORNE hush at the garden wall, 

Where the pale ZIMOSKIs grow thick and tall, 

And the lilacs LIN to the dew-wet air, 

Fragrant smells of gangrene garlic rare. 

Where the RED chrysanthemums BOWEN tune 

To the lilting lute of the moving moon; 

Where the wind does blow and the SANDERS fly, 

And the wild waves wail on the coast nearby ; 

When the small dark hands of my HAMILTON 

Pointed straight to the second of ten till one, 

Then I kissed your lips, and you stole the KEY 

Of my heart, sweet maiden, away from me!

"Wky Daphne" 

A PLAY IN ONE ACT 
By Bethany Swearingen 

PERSONS IN THE PLAY 

Mr. Luffborough (Fairfax), 45. 
Mrs. Luffborough (Felicia), 40. 
Daphne: Sixteen-year-old daughter. 
Young men guests. 



Scene: The drawing room of a stately old house — very conventional appearance. 

Time: 1923. 

(Curtain rises with Mrs. Luffborough, in dinner gown, seated on a handsome davenport. 
Mr. Luffborough enters, walks around room, and then seats himself facing Mrs. Luffborough). 

Felicia: "Well, Fairfax, I believe we have every reason to be proud of Daphne. She has 
today arrived at the critical age of sixteen and, so far as I know, her life has been perfectly normal 
and proper. I am beginning to realize, however, that the time has come for us to provide for 
her the sort of social life she should now expect. Really, we will have to live our youth over 
again with Daphne, and I can't imagine anything more fascinating — if the boys nowadavs have 
ieven a slight semblance to those of the Golden Age. Strange to say, I hardly know a bov in 
Daphne's class at school, and she never mentions one in any but the most impersonal manner." 

Fairfax: "I am gratified, of course, Felicia, at the successful close of Daphne's childhood 
and not in the least surprised. From year to year I have noticed a growing likeness to her 
mother — so what more, dear, could I desire?" 

Felicia: "Oh, Fairfax, you are certainly the little sunbeam in our home. Every time my 
self-respect or vanity is somewhat depleted you come along and replenish the supplv as onlv 
my model husband can. As for Daphne, I am glad she has your temperament, seasoned in a 
way with my common sense. We will see her in action tonight. Here she comes dressed for the 
party — the first one with boys!" 

Fairfax: "Doesn't she look lovely? Her mother all over again! And, if I remember 
correctly, the existence and presence of a mere man or men will in no way phase her." 

(Enter, Daphne, pretty, bobbed-haired girl with a patrician appearance, wearing a simple 
dancing frock and headdress). 

Daphne (with animation): "Behold this Vision of girlish loveliness! My Renee model is 
positively soul-stirring, don't you think, Dad ? Or does your little girl look so grown up that 
you have changed your attitude at the age of forty?" 

Fairfax: "If you won't do, I am a what, Daph ?" 

Daphne: "A miserably poor judge among other things, I'll assure you. Mother, it is splendid 
of you and Dad to celebrate this great occasion, and especially considerate of you to allow me 
to manage the list of invitations. I want you both to meet and talk to everybody. In fact, 
you will have to do most of the entertaining. I believe Poole is about to announce some 
guests now." 

Daphne (with great excitement greets several young boys): "Fred, Jack, Archie, all — greetings 
and joyous welcome!" 

Jack: "Such formality !" 

Fred: "And solemnity!" 

Archie: "And frigidity!" 

(All bowing in worshipful manner: "Great Allah be praised." Mr. and Mrs. Luffborough 
look rather puzzled at the greeting). 

Jack (with great dignity): " 'Tis quite becoming in one of thy years, daughter." 

Archie: "Sixteen in number, I believe." 

Fred: "Sixty in appearance, however!" 

Daphne: "That's too deep for me. Come on over, boys, and meet fond parents. Maybe 
they will understand. Impress 'em if you can. Two suggestions I present to you all: Don't 



ja

let ignorance keep you from conversing freely, and talk long and fluently about me — a fascinating 
subject of interest to you all." (Coming over to Iter parents): "Mother, Dad, let me present 
Messrs. Fred Livingston, Jack Sherrald, Archie Featherston, Wilmington Cox, and Archie Dupree. 
You used to know them, but perhaps you don't recognize them since they have grown to such 
manly splendor." 

Felicia: "I'm delighted to see you children again, and want you all to be friends of Daphne. 
Jack: "You're sorter putting that mild, aren't you, Mrs. Luffborough. We take turn about 
being in love with her." 

Archie (with feeling): "Only we don't take turns — we usually fall in groups. I know, 
being in group II." 

Fairfax (with amusement): "Take heart, boys. Such persons can be won, but not in groups." 
Fred: "And, then, I figure that it's better to have loved and lost, because you enjoy it so 
much when you do win." 

(General laughter among the boys and Daphne). 

Daphne: "I guess that's another way of saying that you and Ophelia are making progress?" 
Jack: "Can you think of a word that carries with it a little, etc., a little more speed than 
progress? Fred's no lame brain when it comes to getting 'em told." 
Daphne (wickedly): "Yes, where to step off!" 
Fred: "Never mind, Miss Daphne." 

(Mrs. Luffborougli looks quizically at her husband. He seems amused. Numerous other 
young men enter, are greeted, and introduced. They are all seated around Daphne and Mrs. 
Luffborough, giving the impression of a room crowed with boys). 

Charles (one of the boys who has just entered): "Mrs. Luffborough, I want to ask you to do 
me a favor 'fore I forget it. I want you to let Daph drive a Marmon coach as our entry in 
the automobile show." 

Felicia: "Why, Charles, that is a lovely compliment, but Daphne doesn't drive at all." 
All the Boys: "Why, Mrs. Luffborough!" 

Fred: "She's the best in town among the girls. She's more accustomed to a Cadillac." 
Charles: "But she's been shoving a Marmon around for the last six weeks." 
Jack: "And time was when she didn't scorn a Ford. She really learned on my Henry I." 
Felicia (with surprise): "Why, Daphne!" 

Daphne: "Yes, Mother, I'm a witness to the truth of that statement." 

Archie: "Mrs. Luffborough, this is what I want to know: What do you think of a girl 
who hasn't any more tact than to beat a fellow at his own game?" 
Felicia: "Well, Archie, what's the game?" 
Archie: "Billiards." 

Felicia: "Horrors! I wouldn't call it lack of tact, but lack of discretion and lady-likeness. 
But why, pray, are you asking such an irrelevant question?" 
(One boy faints away into another's arms). 

Archie: "I was unconscious of asking that kind of a question, but I can tell you who the 
girl was, and maybe that will illuminate the subject. None other than Daphne Felicia 
Luffborough." 

Felicia (with amazement): "Why, Daphne!" 
Daphne: "Yes, Mother, that's true, too." 
Felicia: "Well, where did you learn?" 

Daphne: "Archie Featherston needn't take that as personal. All last month I went to the 
club with Dad when he played golf and most of these assembled guests would be there waiting 
for their respective forbears. Naturally, we got into a friendly game of billiards and, naturally, 
my game was soon an evidence of a misspent youth. Now, just because I won three chocolate 
sundaes off of Archie yesterday afternoon, he's trying to get a law passed forbidding children 
under eighteen playing without consent of their mammas." 

Fairfax (wisely): "He reaped what he sowed for corrupting the youth of the city." 
Julian (abruptly changing the subject to avoid a family row): "I've just come from one and 
don't believe I could survive another. I suggest Daph and I do the feature dance we learned 
this afternoon." 

Felicia (in utter dismay) "Dance? Why, Daphne?" 

Daphne (calmly): "Yes, Mother, I do that, too; and what's more, I've taught every hoy 
in this room to do the same at twenty-five cents a lesson in the school gym to make my club dues. 
That scandalous proceeding has been going on for one year and six months, omitting the Summer 
vacation. I want you to see how professional we've become in so short a time. You really can't 
help admiring us, even if you do disapprove. George, play 'Markeeta' and Jules and I will do

that Spanish tango. Walter, did Night Hawks bring your instruments?" 

Waiter: "Yes, we'll get 'em." 

(Briny in saxophones, horns, drums, etc.) 

Wilmington: "Mrs. Luffborough, we've got the outplayingest jazz orchestra of any prep 
school in the state. Daph's dancing class and the orchestra are giving an extravaganza called 
'The Soap Box Revue' next week. Daph has a superb interpretation of a modern Salome, which 
she wrote herself." 

Daphne: "And if you don't hush, young man, you will be the headless hero." 

(Another boy faints away). 

Felicia (with real concern): "Why, Daphne!" 

Daphne: "That's the truth, if it ever was spoken. And our show is a technical knockout — not 
another one like it in existence!" 

Jack: "I should say not! And this one won't exist long if I'm any judge of how much the 
theatre-going public will stand. Sunday Schools won't be taking it over for exclusive use, either." 

Fred: "On with the dance! I'll blow the whistle occasionally as a gentle reminder that we 
are in a private home and not the dear old gym. I'll call the 'figgers,' too — right cheek, left 
cheek, kick, kiss!" 

Daphne: "Aw, Fred, your mind's in the gutter. You're thinking about the little dance 
created last week that was immediately tabooed." 

Fred: "Well, it's on the curb now, alright, alright." 

(Julian and Jack dance beautifully together). 

Jack: "Mrs. Luffborough, you and Mr. Luffborough ought to give us a sample of the way 
you danced when you never missed one in ten miles around here." 

Felicia: "Why, Jack!" 

Daphne: "Yes, Mother, that is true, too. Dad told me once that you got the blue ribbon for 
dancing — and your diary wouldn't lead me to believe you didn't understand the youthful thrill 
of moving about to music." 

Fairfax: "They have you there, Felicia. Suppose I waltz you around again? Fine! Boys, 
play 'Beautiful Blue Danube'." 

(They waltz very gracefully together). 

Julian: "Daph, I see where you get your grace. Your next dance is with me, please, 
Mrs. Luffborouugh." 

Felicia: "You are indeed gallant, and I always will love gallantry. Suppose we try a new 
step? I seem to be terribly out of step with ray daughter. But Daphne, where are the girls? 
I have been so absorbed that I didn't notice that they had not come down." 

Daphne: "Well, I'll tell you Mother. I took you literally about this being a 'boy party' and 
invited only boys. For once in my life I wanted to be sure of not merely a rush, but an onslaught. 
I wanted to start off right." 

Fred: "Start, Daphne?" 

Jack: "And with a brilliant start, maybe, maybe she'd be willing to end with none other than 

(all simultaneously) 

Mel" 

(Quick curtain).

The Best 
Business Career 



Is what every ambitious man is thinking 
about at the present time. Tdfe Insurance is 
one of the best, one of the most desirable, 
and one of the most satisfactory as a perma- 
nent calling. 

In assets and volume of business, life in- 
surance is one of the three leading busi- 
nesses of this country, yet the field is com- 
paratively underdeveloped. Only 7 per cent 
of the economic value of human life in the 
United States is covered by insurance. This 
gives an idea of the big field still to be 
worked. 

As to remuneration, reports of college 
graduates who have entered business indi- 
cate that life insurance is at the very top 
as a source of income. Now is the time for 
you to consider what you are going to do. 
If you are ambitious and willing to work 
hard and are interested to know about life 
insurance, address

especially now. In this store you 
not only find "right prices" — at- 
tractive prices — but 



'Right ' Merchandise 

as well — merchandise that pos- 
sesses the elements of quality nec- 
essary to effectively fulfill the pur- 
pose for which it is to be used, 
from the standpoint of the most 
profitable investment "in the long 
run."
