Alma Mater 


Alma Mater, dear old Millsaps, 

Loyal sons are ive; 
Our fond hearts are thine alone. 

And ever more shall be. 
Proud art thou in classic beauty 

Of thy noble past, 
With thy watchword. Honor, Duty, 

Thy high fame shall last. 


Ev'ry student, man and maiden. 

Swell the glad refrain. 
Till the breezes, music-laden. 

Waft it back again. 
Proud art thou in classic beauty 

Of thy noble past, 
Pf'ith thy uatchivord. Honor, Duty. 

Thy high fame shall last

Our happiness cannot always be satisfied by lingering within college walls 
and dreamily looking forward to the future into which we must pass. 

And after we have been encompassed with that galaxy of problems which 
await us, and as the evening time of life draws on, it should be as the sight 
of land to a ship-wrecked sailor to take from the shelf a copy of the 
Nineteen Twenty-Five Bobashela, imperfect in its make-up and crude in its 
form, and, forgetting the errors of the book, be able to spend a few hours 
living over, as it were, those days spent in Majordom. 

For no other purpose have we made this book. 













.. V 



On Sabbath evening:, once again. 

The Angt'lus is tolling; 
While down our leaf-sti-ewn Lover's-lane 

Young lads and maids go strolling. 

I try to tell, but all in vain. 

How much my heart has missed you 
Since that last day down Lover's-lane, 
When first I held and kissed you. 

How sweet the thrush upon the hill 

When lips met lips earessing. 
But sweet as that and sweeter still. 

Were your .soft lips confessing. 

No balm has come to still the pain. 
Though still the thrush is singing; 
Anil, 'midst the peace of Lover's-lane. 
The Angelus is ringing. R. W. T.

Be.ssie D. Bowling, B.S Harperville, Miss. 

Freshman Commission, '23; Girls' Glee Club, '24; Y. W. C. A. 

Bessie D. has made herself known and heard from her first day in school. The good part about it 
is that she is the kind of person you like to know, and who says things that are good to hear and 
are delightful to remember. We will always recall our "little classmate" with pleasure. Keep on 
being and saying, Bessie D. 

Robert H. Bennett, B.S Durant, Miss. 

L,. L. S. ; Right Royal Ramblers; Bobashela Staff, '25; after two years' trying, 
passed Chemistry I. 

An ineradicable grin, especially for the ladies, has gone a long way in winning friends for "Bob" at 
Millsaps. Friendliness and optiniism. balanced by study and college spirit, have mat.le his Millsaps 
record an enviable one.

When you say of a man that he is good to look upon and Senior Class president, you have said more 
than is good for him to hear. But in this well-l5alanced branch of mankind it seems safe to commit 
ourselves further by acknowledging tliat his honors were actually won. 

Kathleen Carmichael, B.S Utica, Miss. 

Kathleen sits calmly and takes in cvcrytliing and then when she gets ready to speak out. it would 
be well for everyone to stop and heai'. Her geniality and outstanding scholarship make her a much- 
liked and highly valued member of the Nineteen Twenty-five Class.

Burks has gained, through practice, the reputation of a quiet, companional)le fellow who knows his 
friends and likes them. They are numbered by the student body of Millsaps. He plays a nice game 
of basketball and was one of the Millsaps representatives at Atlanta in S. I. A. A., lSt22.

Coralie dares to do what slie pleases. Why shouldn't she, since she pleases to do such interesting 
and attractive things? Nothing commonplace, anyway! And, above all, she has dune college in three 
years. We predict an eventful and useful future for you, Coralie. 

Robert Abbott F'ord, B.S Jackson, Miss. 

Robert started off his college career at Millsaps and has returned, after two years at Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology, to finish things up. When we think of his personality and ability to do 
many things well, we are glad to have him again in our ranks. We arc sorry, Robert, that your 
senior year had to be soniewhat spoiled by the study of such a subject as Latin.

Jessie is right there when it conies to V)rains. beautj', and beaux. '\\'hat she has done in college (and 
she has done lots) has been done well. and. oh, so earnestly! Jessie closely approaches the "model 
college girl."

Basketball. '24; Science Club. 

Flora, Miss 

Martha seems to be very temperamental about attending college — that is. she is very irregular about 
it. Tiowever, in being that way, she gives the rest of us a running start that we really need in 
order to keep up with her. Her manner- and attitude towards things generally enable one to guess 
correctly that her label is "landed gentry." 

John Lee Gaixey, A.B., K A Jackson, Miss. 

L. L. S.; Glee Club. '24, '25; Y. M. C. A. Cabinet, '24; P. & W. .Staff. -24. 

Lee is always "uj) and doing, with a heart for any fate." That in itself would be enough to make 
him liked and admired, but in order to fortify himself against all kinds of folks he has added unto 
his most striking characteristic an unusual sociability, an excellent voice, and the trait of a hail- 
fellow-well-met that satisfies. 

Mary Ella Davenport, A.B Forest, Miss. 

Bourgeois Me<lal, '22; All-One Club; Secretary Senior Class. 

Mary showed her good .iudgment when she combined in herself the charm and sweetness of an old- 
fashioned pink and the brilliance and the intellectuality of an ultra modern. One in a hundred!

Pat Elkins, A.B., K A Jackson, Miss. 

A breeze, a rush, and thru, of course. Pat. She begins to relate rapidly the uncommonly good luck 
which has overtaken her, or the veritable disaster. Either fortune entertains you and you re.ioice or 
wail with her. as the case may be. She lives as much as the average person in just half the time, 
and alwaj's will. 

W.'\LTER AIellen Galloway, B.S., A' .4 AlcComb, Miss. 

L. L. S. ; Football. '22, '24; Right Royal Ramblers; "M" Club. 

Walter is a life-size picture of many a freshman's ambition. He is an athlete and a ladies' man. and 
stars equally in both roles. Notwithstanding all this, his literary side of college life has not been 

JoELLA Evans, B.S Jackson, Miss. 

Capital City Club; Chy Kia. 

Everyone who knows Joella wishes that they had .iust half as much capability as she. We wouldn't 
mind being able to specialize in Chemistry with her ease or to have her unusual knack for selecting 
friends. We are rather jealous of the nonchalant way in which she takes college work and college 
play, and her success in both.

Albkrt Nottley Gore, A.B Walthall, Miss. 

G. L. S. Treasurer, '23; Auditor, '24; Square and Compass. 

The earnest way in which Gore lias done his worlv lias certainly commended him to the student body

Evelyn Mae Flowers, B.S., M Jackson, Miss. 

Y. W. C. A. Caljinet, ■22; Pan-Hellenic Council, '23; Tennis Club, '21; Science Club. 

Evelyn is always where she ouyht to be, and usually doiny what she ought to do. At least she is 
very decided about whatever it is, of which characteristic we are envious. Strange — but she is pretty 
and fastidious with it all.

James Owen Harris, A.B Shannon, Miss. 

L. L. S. : Science Club; Manager Tennis Team, '25. 

J. O. Harris, better known as "Peanut," has aJ^ected a carefree and easy-going manner and lias 
attained soniewliat of a reputation as a wit and a jolly good fellow. Underneath this rather casual 
exterior we all like to believe he is just as serious-minded and thoughtful as it is well for one to be.

The college hat is off to Maggie May. Slie is a satisfactory student, right hand of the Y. M. C. A., 
fairer half of the P. & \V. Staff, and is outstanding for her all-roundness and all-oneness. 

Carl Lotterhos Huber, A.B Crystal Springs, Miss. 

L. L. S. ; Science Club. 

Carl has taken a most interesting part in college life during the past four years, and has gained 
distinction as one of the most dependable rooters and athletic fans. His literary work has not been 
neglected tor all that. He has had judgment enough to mix them about half and half — a most 
satisfactory combination.

LiDA Margaret Lackey, A.B Forest, Miss. 

Licla came to Millsaps in her junior year, but adapted herself to our ways and interests so quickly 
that she soon became an indispensable part of our class. She has helped to keep the scholarship 
record of the school high and was one of the pioneers in girls' basketball, and thus has taken her 
part in the two most important phases of college life. 

Wiley Rukus Huddlestox, B.S Harperville, Miss. 

G. L. S. President, '25; Mississippi College Debater, '25; Science Club. 

I..adies and gentlemen, it is with pleasure that we present one of Millsaps' ablest orators. Persua- 
siveness as a speaker has done much to win popularity for Huddleston. and his oratorical ability has 
a firm basis of learning, common-sense, sound judgment, and keen humor. 

Doris Elena Lauchley, B.S. 

. Jackson, ]\Iiss. 

Doris has kept us guessing all the while — we don't know whether she is really interested in the 
people about her as she sometimes seems, or whether her indifference is a carefully studied pose. 
In any case, the veil of mystery about her is quite attractive, and if it isn't genuine, she's the 
smartest girl we know.

George has the enviable, yet rather troublesome, trait of having the courage of his convictions. It 
has afforded him a great deal of excitement and developed in him tlie ability to take his stand on 
a question and argue it with ease and good results. 

Gladys Rosalie Lowe, B.S Jackson, Miss. 

Science Club, '25; Chy Kia. 
"Kitty's" diminutive size and prettiness make her the coy member of the class. The adjective used 
in regard to her size by no means holds goo* in regard to her mentality and pep — one wonders where 
she keeps her supply of both. 

Henry Lewis Jones, B.S Jackson, Miss. 

"Big Jones" came back to Millsaps after the World War with a good record and a wife, and joined 
the ranks of '25 to finish his college course. In no one could there be found more friendliness, a 
bigger heart, and greater readiness to help solve the problems about them. He has proven a loyal 
and worth-while member of our class, with an unusual ability to prolong class discussions.

Rohkrt James Landis, B.S Jackson, Miss. 

Capital City Club; Science Club; DcMolay. 

The Class of '25 owns Landis gladly in spite of his divided allegiance. He lias from time to time taken 
about an equal interest in an educational institution just over the hill as he has shown in his Alma 
Mater. Cheated as we have been, we don't hold it against you, "R. J." We trust you will have 
as good success there as you have here.

Ethel is a most satisfactory combination of the practical and artistic. Officially, she is grand high 
maker of the grand high grades and player of the pianoforte at chapel and on other ceremonious 
occasions. But she doesn't let little things like that come between her and her friends, who are many. 

William Wallace Lester, B.S., U K A Jackson, Miss. 

Secretary Freshman Class; All-One Club; President Sophomore Class; Honor Council,

Wallace started our class off right in its beginning and has ever since helped to steer its course. 
His hard-down ability enabled him to sway liis fellow students — and, well, it must be his classic 
profile as much as anything else with the co-eds.

If "Bob's" success at Millsaps can be used as a criterion as to what his success in life will he, 
we may be sure that he will rise to eminence. Quiet, unassuming, and friendly, he has lived life to 
the full in college and seems to have found it good. 

Bessie Misterfeldt, A.B. 

Florence, Miss. 

Y. W. C. A. ; Chy Kia. 

Though Bessie didn't .ioin us until our .iunior year, she has in the two years gained the friendship 
of the class. Those who really know "Bess" love her most — and what more could anyone desire? 
She is a lady by nature, a student by choice, and a loyal Millsapian, with a big interest in Mississippi

When Quinnie came back for his sophomore year he had an added incentive to make good. The 
"Q" in his name stands for quality of the best kind in school work, college activities, and character.

■■Mac" is rather quiet and entirely self-effacing — except at one time — in class. Then he becomes about 
the most outstanding man to be found. Millsaps has many ■'sharks^' in their especial line, but ■'Mac" 
is a shark in all of his. He is a three-year man, also.

"Music hath charms" for I.orine far more than have books. Her good alto and excellency as a

Finishing a college course in three years, ■■Tommy" has had plenty of time to \vin for himself the 
friendship of every student and faculty member. His friendly manner and pleasant appearance have 
won for him a piace in the frii'ndship of the co-eds that is rivaled only by his o^vn place among

In the MiUsaps cross-word puzzle, when the name Houston Phillips is listed, we all acclaim in one

Eaiily Blanton Plummer, A.B., /v J 

Glee Club, '25; Bobashela, '25. 

Kmily's return to the Class after two years' absence renewed our interest in graduation and caused 
us to consider seriously trying for our diplomas. There's just no telling what a good personality can 
do for a class; one that wears stylish clothes, writes fair verse, paints with a touch, and is enter- 
taining wherever she alights.

James' red hair, freckles, fertile brain, and brute force have caused him to have a rather checkered 
career in college. He has doubtless been educated in a number of wajs, for which he should be 
glad. The class is certainly behind him and thinks it has in him a man.

Curtis has fitted well into the scheme of things at Millsaps. He has done what was expected of him 
and a great many unexpected things, also. The college and class regret to lose Pullen — they are so 
used to liking and depending upon him. 

Elizabeth Shackelford, A.B., K A Eden, Miss. 

Have you ever heard Elizabeth "speak a piece"? That's just one of her many accomplishments that 
make her quite an interesting character. Her deep, soft voice is unusual, her ability to read 
".luvenal." and her calm manner. In short, a person in whom the artistic and practical are com- 
bined in a delightful proportion.

Hilary is one of whom we stand in awe. He has a calm way of telling us what to do and the rest 
of us have a calm way of doing: it. His rather serious disposition, his ability to reason, the efficient 
way he does things, and the noticeable check he has upon himself — all these qualities make us feel 
that when he does turn loose he will do great things. 

Bessie Sumrall, A.B., K A Jackson, Miss. 

Freshman Commission, '24; Girls' Glee Club, '24, '25; Vice-President Junior Class. 

Coming to Millsaps as a junior after two years at Whitworth College. Bessie's sweetness and charm 
gave her instant popularity with both girls and boys. One of the best singers of the Glee Club, her 
favorite song has been, "My Heart's at A. and M., My Heart Is Not Here."

Here is Walter, with his confident step and detached air. When he appears you instinctively look 
for a coat of mail, a coach-and-four, a long scroll, or anything that suggests the gallant and the 
intellectual. The class owns this three-year man with pleasure.

You have simply to prove yourself properly enthusiastic on the subjects of English royalty, the

H. Walter Featherstun Vaughan, A.B Madison, Miss. 

I., Ij. S. ; Tennis, '25; Science Club; Right Royal Ramblers. 

Vaughan — "H. W. F.," as he is usually called — has allowed his personality and disposition to crop 
out in several ways. First, we know him by his car, a temperamental-looking machine that evi- 
dently requires the personal attention of its owner. Then his green sweater and love of drama make 
us believe that he is something of an aesthete as well as a mechanical genius. 

Alberta Taylor, A.B., A' J Jackson, Miss. 

Alberta is whimsical — at least, when she gives you a rather penetrating smile, as if she knows 
son^ething on you and it's funny, and she isn't going- to tell you what it is — ever! She takes every- 
thing with about the comfortable degree of seriousness and gets on admirably in both the musical 
and literary world.

you stop to analyze her — pretty, whole-hearted, independent. She has our recommendation.

"Mac's" diploma should be a source of great pride and pleasure to him. He has worked steadily 
for it and made an enviable scholastic ri-cord. In no instance has his school work been neglected. 
The good wishes of '25 go with you, "Mac."

Robert is the kind of person that has real stuff in him. He is a preacher who does not consider 
himself holier than the rest of us, one who doesn't try to mix his theology with mathematics or 
French di'ama. He is thoroughly up-to-date. We are proud to graduate with him.

"Hezi" is merely a misnomer which emphasizes the fact that Eugene is anything else but one who 
hesitates. He has creditably mixed business with college and has gained much from both. The

We have Just one like Lucie. She is always thinking about something which usually proyes inter- 
esting to her friends. If it is a new dress, we know it will be stylish; a book, it's just off the press; 
a date, it's with a hero; a lesson, it's prepared in an A-plus way.

Woolley has the knack, rather uncommon nowadays, of getting on with people gracefully. He is in 
every sense a thrice-balanced man — ability, proven by his grades; endurance, twelve hours under 
Professor Lin; experience, very little more will be necessary for his success in the business world.

In the right category, too. There is a permanence and stability about her that is rare and most

of knowledge. His popularity is both general and genuine.

Tne Free Soul 

By G. E. Greexway 

Where shall I wander, nhither shall 1 gof 

J\Iy house has left me, joined its kindred earth. 

I do not knoiv 

The meaning of this strange rebirth. 

And I am lost as ivinds of night that bloiv. 

Aly freedom only brings 

A homesiek longing for familiar things. 

Like daivning sun 

Upon a silver morn, 

A pilgrimage it has not yet begun, 

I tremble, iveak, new-born. 

Before eternity; 

And, all forlorn. 

I cry, "Where is the self that used to bef" 

For where are all the things that I have loved- 

The sights, the fragrances, the sounds, 

The love to ivhich my being moved, 

Are they beyond my hounds? 


My love is still upon that vanished world 

That outivard to infinity has tvhirled. 

In vain I struggle to forget. 

And only 

Find that I all the more my fate regret. 

I am star-free, and should not thus be lonely! 

And yet — 

The breath of morning to my being clings. 

And I am homesick for familiar things.

Unnnisned Work 

Unfinished work is left by all, 
That to some unborn one shall fall ; 
Though work be hard, or work be sweet, 
The hours all too swiftly meet. 
And not a one we may recall. 

We place a few stones on the wall, 
A few lines on our pages scrawl — 
But 'tis — though men may praise our feat- 
Unfinished work. 

We gild our bit of life's gay ball 
Before we hear the evening call; 
But art is long and time is fleet; 
The best we do is incomplete; 
The most that we may do is small : 
Unfinished work. 

G. E. G. 

Toy SKips 

One by one, with quiet glee, 

I laimched my ships on the boundless sea; 

One by one, their white sails filled, 

And they followed where the breezes willed. 

Long I watched each tiny boat 
Cross the bar and outward float, 
Till it vanished in the distance far, 
With its sail aglow like a morning star. 

I may not guide their restless way; 
Where they may drift I cannot say. 
The shifting wind, the drifting tide. 
The wandering wave must be their guide. 

One by one, with quiet glee, 

I launched my ships on the boundless sea; 

Ah, long the day and far the way 

Till my ships return to me.

Bohashela, Nineteen Tiuenty-Five 

Tke Spirit of Bobaskela 

By Elizabeth Brame 

ILHOUETTED against the hot blue Mississippi sky stood the Indian 
maiden, Bohashela, laughing sweetly, her strange fay eyes a mixture of 
fire and dew. She let her gaze drift slowly upon the panorama which 
stretched about her. Toward the south, she watched the smoke arise 
fantastically and silently from the spot which marked the white man's 
town of Les Fleurs Bluff. Only the house roof could be seen from her 
position on the small hill, but she watched the smoke arise and take mystic 
shapes against the autumn sky, and smiled whimsically to herself. From 
the east she could hear very dimly and spasmodically echoes of the Indian boy's 
gutteral whoops from across the Pearl River, where her own people, a tribe 
of Choctaws, had their cone-shaped dwellings in a rough circle which touched the 
river bank. They were merry-making, for it was nearing the full moon, when she, 
Bohashela, the only daughter of their wise (neat Chief, was to be given in marriage 
to Berry Child, a young brave of the tribe, after which all the strong warriors would 
go on the warpath. Towards the north and west stretched the forest — the forest she 
knew and loved so well ; the forest of sweet-smelling pines — brown, bare, slim, and 
golden as her own golden Hesh amid the golden blaze of autumn leaves ; the forest 
where she had spent her young life among the wild things, whose every secret she 

Glimpsed through the deep woodland, she looked as an elfin child, elusive and in 
rhythm with the world about her. For a moment she gazed toward the south, and 
her eyes became alluring with the soft depth of dreams. Expectantly, she stood and 
watched the slender, almost imperceptible trail which led down the hill to Les Fleurs 
Bluff. Then, with the swift, graceful movement of a fawn, she glided noiselessly 
through the woods in the direction of the rising sun. 

Entering her camp, she disappeared within her father's lodge. Presently she reap- 
peared, carrying a wooden dish, and walked toward the lodge of the father of Mina 
Pokau, the very brave young warrior with whom her father had engaged for her to 
marry. All the people whom she passed sitting or standing about the camp looked 
curiously at her as she went by them, and some of the young people whispered 
together, but the girl held her head proudly until she reached the lodge. Turning to 
the left, she sat down for a moment on the women's side, and was glad when she 
found that the only people within were Mina Pokau, who was at work smoothing 
arrow shafts between two stones, and his sister, who was sewing moccasins. When 
Bohashela saw that these were the only people within the lodge, she arose, and, going 
where Mina Pokau sat, offered the dish to him. He took it and ate, and the girl 

Bohashela, J\ineteen Tiuenty-Five 

returned to her place and sat down. After the boy had eaten, he put the dish on the 
ground before him and went on with his work, and the girl, again arising, took the 
dish and left the lodge. Each day during the engagement, which had been arranged 
between her father's family and the family of Mina Pokau, she served him thus, and 
she must continue this trial luitil the day of the marriage ceremony. 

The Indian maiden was much beloved by the members of her tribe. She was 
always kind and gentle and willing to take care of the little brown babies or play 
with young striplings of bro\\-n lads. It was to Bobashela that the women came with 
their troubles, and the old men who were no longer able to go on the warpath liked 
to have her talk to them. It was thus that she was called Bobashela — meaning "Cjood 
Friend." Even the birds and squirrels came to her as they did to none other of the 
Indian maidens. She was a good friend to all the wild things of the forest. And the 
most treasured of her woodland friends was the big, vivid red tanager, with the won- 
derful ribbon-red color over his breast, all flaming exquisite red save the circles of 
darkness which were his eyes. He lived on the top of the tallest pine tree on the 
small hill, and although the cardinal is the most shy and timid of birds, he flamed 
around Bobashela, or, perched on the tip-top branch of the tall pine, would swing his 
vivid body against the tall sky and thrill with sheer ecstasy, "Pretty! Pretty! Pretty!" 
And again, "So dear! So dear! So dear!" or, "Come here! Come here! Come 
here!" It was a strange coincidence that the cardinal chose, as his home, the target 
tree of Mina Pokau. 

The target tree of ^lina Pokau stood on the top of the hill, exactly in the middle 
of the very narrow trail which led straight from the hill to the ri\er bank. Mina 
Pokau, who could send an arrow straighter and farther than any other bra\e, came 
often to the trail to practice. So far from the target tree that he could scarcely see 
the tall pine, he would silently raise his bow, and with neat precision send the arrow 
straightly, swiftly, through the narrow opening in the woods. And always the arrow 
winged its way to the tall pine target tree. 

Busy with the preparation for her marriage, many moons passed before Bobashela 
again left the camp, but on the day before the ceremony she slipped away and glided to 
the hill at the north of Les Fleurs Bluff. Almost reaching its summit, she stopped 
suddenly and, with alluring grace, poised for Hight, her strange fay eyes gleaming 
with a strange softness, watching the scene before her. At the top of the tall pine sat 
the scarlet tanager, thrilling and whistling until it seemed that he would actually tear 
his throat asunder. At the foot of the tall pine stood, motionless, a white boy, his 
face lit up with beautifid joy as he listened to the song of the cardinal. Many times 
Bobashela had watched the lovely white boy come up the trail from Les Fleurs Bluii 
and try to catch the redbird in song. But always her friend had become shy and flown 
away. But now the cardinal sang \vitli all the ecstacy of his being, and the boy 
listened in glorious wonder and adoration. And the eyes of Bobashela became soft 
with wanton laughter and alluring with the depth of uncaught dreams. 

Bohashela, Nineteen Tiuenty-Five 

Then suddenly from down the trail between the brown and golden leaves, she 
caught one swift glimpse of a bit of Choctaw red. It was Mina Pokau, she knew, 
who had come to practice and whose arrow would come straight and silently to the 
tall pine target tree. Swift as an arrow she swung her body into the trail, posed for 
one scant second, and fell at the feet of the white boy with an arrow through her 
heart. As in a dream, the boy gazed at the quivering form at his feet, while the 
cardinal rent the air with his thrills of "Good friend! Good friend! Good friend!" 
The boy bent over the form of the Indian girl and thought her the loveliest thing he 
had ever seen. She slowly opened her eyelids and raised her eyes to the singing cardi- 
nal. Then she looked into the boy's worried eyes and smiled contentedly, and, calling 
the cardinal to her, "I give you the fire bird," she said, "the fire bird who brought the 
flame of living fire to the earth." And then, smiling dreamily, she added : "The red 
bird of love. Worry not, great white boy, for though I die, my spirit will live in this 
hill forever. For down through many moons will come a time when Les Fleurs Bluff 
shall be Les Fleurs Bluff no longer; but your people shall have built a great city here, 
and my people shall be here no more, but broken as the winds break the reeds on the 
river bank. But always the spirit of Bohashela shall dwell upon this hill and in the 
hearts of men who tread upon it." 

Slowly her eyelids closed, and the white boy gently kissed the smiling lips, then 
arose and went down the trail toward Les Fleurs Bluff. And the cardinal trilled, 
"Pretty! Pretty! Pretty! Bohashela!" 

Almost a century has passed, and the straggling little village of Les Fleurs Bluff 
has changed to our growing city. The Indians are, indeed, broken and gone. The tall 
pine tree has long since been cut down, and in its place stands the white man's building 
of learning. But ever the spirit of Bohashela dwells upon the hill.

The co-eds have not been at MilLsaps many years in large enough numbers to take 
part in intercollegiate athletics. But since their entrance into that field the interest has 
steadily increased and their records are becoming better each year. This season they 
are making a strong bid for the state championship in basketball.

Football Review 

The '24 Majors have accomplished something which has been the aim of Miilsaps' elevens since 
football opened here five years ago, and that is to place Miilsaps football on a par with that 
of the other colleges of the state. Five years of steady work brings Miilsaps up to the other 
colleges which have had it for years. 

But when the season closed they woke up to find that their record stood five defeats, three 
victories, and one tie. Again it seemed as if there was indeed a "jinx" on their trail, for their 
record shows that they made 45 more first downs than their opponents. Such a record is seldom 
made, even by the teams which are the most consistent winners. 

The Majors who fought for the Purple and White this year were men who fought to the end, 
whether the odds were against them or not. No matter what the score, every militant Major was 
in his position fighting his best for Miilsaps. 

That '24 line, made of huskies who would not yield, will long be remembered in Miilsaps' 
annals. Said to be the strongest in the state, only twice did it give more first downs than was 
won by the Majors — the Bulldogs from A. & M. and the Birmingham-Southern Panthers being 
the only teams which could accomplish this feat. 

One game stands out above all others, a game when, with their opponents outclassed and 
outfought, the Majors still could not win. The Choctaws were seemingly not in the Majors' 
class for the first time in football history, as they could register only one-fifth as many downs 
as the Majors won, but when the dust of battle cleared, the Purple and White was drooping in 

Here's to the team! The team which fought a hard, clean game, no matter whether in victorv 
or defeat; a team which, almost as a whole, will be back at their Alma Mater next year to make 
the greatest football eleven ever produced by Miilsaps College. 

And here's to Coach Zimoski, who made that team possible, and who was willing to sacrifice 
in order to stay with Miilsaps another year and give them the strongest team in the state!

Levon Brooks Left Tackle 

"Tiny" Brooks had only to set himself, and any plunge was spilled against his shoul- 
ders. The heaviest man of the '24 Majors, "Tiny" handled his weight in a way 
which promises great things for the succeeding years. Here is one of the reasons 
that a line plunge was seldom called by the Millsaps opponents. 

J. W. Young, Captain Halfback 

"Stump" was handed a cruel dose by Dame Fortune in the first thirty minutes of 
play, breaking his hand in a manner which kept him out of most of the season's bat- 
tles. "Stump" could not boast size, but he was a great broken-field runner, and could 
pick holes in a way that meant steady gains for the Majors. It was "Stump's" 
fighting spirit that put across the winning touchdown in the last fifty seconds of the 
S. P. U. contest. 

C. B. AlfORO Halfback 

Charlie Alford came from the '23 Minors and, quiescent during the first part of the 
season, came out with a rush in the S. P. U. battle. Playing hardly half the time, he 
rolled up gains totaling seventy-three yards. With two more years to play for the 
Purple and White, Alford has a great football future before him. 



Bohashela, Nrneteen Ttuenty-Five 

T. E. MOTLOW Tackle 

d End 

"Mot" was probably the most versatile player on the squad, performing well as 
tackle, end, and half during the season. Wherever he appeared, "Mot" was not to 
be denied, and when a weak place appears on the team, he may be counted on to 
plug it. 

N. C. Young Halfback 

"Slim" leaves the Purple and White this year, and his presence in tlie backfield will 
be sadly missed. He is ()uick to pick a hole, but the way he snagged passes from the 
air was equaled by no other man on the Millsaps eleven. More than once the com- 
bination, Harris to "Slim," paved the way for a Major touchdown. 

J. R. Harris Halfback 

"Jobie" was the man whose brilliant forward passing and long punting was 
always a constant quantity upon which the Majors could draw for offense or defense. 
"Jobie's" toe uncorked many a fifty-yard punt which sent the opponents scrambling 
back into their own territory. His specialty was sweeps around the ends or a comou- 
flaged dash ending in a pass. 

Bohashela, l^meteen Ttuenty-Five 

Clyde L. Atkins R'u/ht End 

"At" was the speediest man on the Major eleven, and there was not a man on the field 
who could leave him behind. A hard fighter, lightning tor quickness, and sure of his 
play, Atkins was in the game every second. \^'hen a forward pass was called, Atkins 
seemed to be down the field almost before the back received the ball. 

j. Harold Wep.r Tackle 

"Pole," the old reliable of the Majors, was a tower of strength in every game, and 
many were the plays that came to grief opposite his position. Never once did "Pole" 
falter, and his <)uiet assurance was felt by his teammates. Playing his last year with 
the Purple and V^'hite in '25, he is a man who will be heard from, and that "with 
no uncertain sound." 

J•;R()^ Brooks Lcfi End 

"Sonny's" uncanny ability to stop a play that came near his territory, as well as the 
way he sped down under passes and punts, earned the respect of his teammates to 
such a degree that he was chosen captain of the '25 eleven. Captain Brooks was an 
All-Stater in '22, and will push someone hard for his old position next season. 

BobasJiela, Njneteen Tiventy-Five 

RuFUS W. Oakev Tackle 

Oakey's brilliant defensive work, with his power to smash holes in the opposing 
line when the backs needed it, caused him to get into every game after his late start. 
Belonging to the '22 team, Oakey came back with a vengeance after being out of the 
game for a year, and he is looked to to fill au important place in the '25 eleven. 

W. A. Bealle Fullback 

"Cyrus" is a man respected by ail his teammates and feared by his opponents. When 
a gain was badly needed, "Cyrus" was called on to hit that line, and hit it he did, 
with the momentum of a through express. Beallo drives hopes from the hearts of 
the opposing linesmen by his fierce driving plunges. As relief quarter, Bealle 
never failed to lead his team with his skill. 

Author L. Rouse Fullback 

"Speedy" ended the season as the supreme line plunger of the eleven, and when he 
tucked the ball under his arm and ducked his head it spelled a good gain for Mill- 
saps. When he set his weight in motion, he seldom knew what it meant to be 
stopped without a gain. 

Bohashela, J\meteen Ttuenty-Five 

James E. Baxter (Center 

Placed at center the second game of the season, Baxter performed in a manner which 
kept him there every game this season. At guard last year, this season Baxter devel- 
oped into one of the best centers in the state. Rangy, but heavv, the yardage made 
over his position could be counted on the fingers of one hand, if counted at all. He 
was the main cog in the line that was considered by some to be the best in the State. 

Walter M. Galloway End 

"Hank" was one of the Majors who failed to chum with Lady Luck, for he was 
thought ineligible for all Conference games, only to have found after the season was 
over that he could have played in all. But in spite of this, Galloway trained con- 
sistently, and was in every non-Conference game played by the Major eleven. F. Henley Right Guard 

"Bigun" stood across from "Red," and these two are a pair who lived up to the 
watchword, "They shall not pass." Not only did he stop line plunges, but when a 
pass was attempted his way, he could be counted on to knock it down. Henley, 
playing his second year with the Purple and White, made the All-State Eleven, a 
record which speaks for itself. We expect still greater things from "Bigun" next 

Bohashela, Nineteen Ttuenty-Five 

James Plummer Guard 

"Red" is a fighting guard who adds to his fight the ability acquired by several years 
with the Millsaps squad. He earned his first varsity letter year before last, and 
reached football heights in his final appearance for his Alma Mater by being pro- 
claimed All-State guard this year. In "Red" we lose a mainstay of the great '24 

T. B. HoLLEMAN Quarterback 

"Bo" is a molecule in size, but a mammoth in ability. On him also Lady Luck 
frowned, for with less than half the season completed, he was injured at Hendricks 
and was out for the rest of the season. In spite of playing only half time, however, 
"Bo" made the second All-State eleven. Speedy and gritty, with plenty of football 
strategy up his sleeve, he will certainly enroll his name in the annals of football fame 
before his two more years at Millsaps are completed. 

Paul Byrd Half 

Paul came from last season's Minors, of whom he was one of the best backs. All 
he lacks is experience, and in the games in which he played he showed that he is fast 
securing that. Quick on his feet and able to pick a hole, he is counted on to be one 
of the regular backs next season. 


Bobashela, Nineteen Txuenty-Five 

W. C. Marry Guard 

"Hot" made his first appearance on the Millsaps grid this year, but his consistent, 
steady playing made him a linesman to be feared. With a year's training behind 
him, Mabry should make his mark as a gridster, and we predict a great future for 
him in the football world. 

V. E. Chalfant 


Injuries claimed another man from among the Majors, and this was Chalfant. 
Starting what promised to be his greatest year, Chalfant was put out for almost the 
entire season at A. and M., and his hopes of making a great record this year were 
spoiled. The way he tears through the opposing wall with every ounce of strength 
and fight that is in him carries him to success where others might fail. 

J. S. Warrex Guard 

Warren was a man who, although he did not make a varsity letter, was one of the 
causes of the development of the Majors team. Rain or shine, Warren was on the 
field without fail, ready to do his part toward getting the team into shape. This was 
his first year out for football, but his last at Millsaps, as he finishes this spring. 


Bohashela, Nineteen Tiventy-Five 

J. C. Williams Half 

Jack is a last year's freshman who has been showing up well in the scrimmage, and 
should be one of the '25 team. He is light but fast, and willing to stick to it 
through thick and thin. Against S. P. U. and Howard College, he showed that he 
is developing into a speedy back. 

S. M. Bailey End 

"Senior," an All-Stater in basketball, went out for football this year for his first time, 
but his ability was not to be denied, and he soon assured himself of a position. Hurt 
near the end of the season, Bailey was kept out of the last few contests. But 
while playing, his speed and headwork made him a dangerous man to the opponents 
on both offense and defense. 


Basketball Review 

The major basketeers are hard at work and are determined to beat all past records. 
No brilliant record is marked up for last season, but the fighting spirit the majors 
showed in spite of defeat is due consideration. After defeating A. &: M. once and 
losing to them once, the majors lost a two-game series to Ole Miss. The Choctaws 
managed to win the next series, as the majors only defeated them once in a hard 
fought game. 

Undaunted by these defeats, Coach Zimmie and the majors went to the S. I. A. A. 
tournament at Macon, Ga., determined to bring back laurels. The usual major luck 
prevailed, and they drew Mercer, one of the strongest teams at the tournament, for 
the first game. Mercer won, 21 to 18, but she also won the championship. 

This season's team should develop into an even better team than last, as most 
of the letter men are back, and several of last season's freshmen are working hard for 
regular positions. 

With wins over the local V. M. C. A., Clarke College, Hattiesburg ^'. M. C. A., 
and defeats by Centenary, Mississippi College and the State Teacher's College, as a 
starter, the majors have gone into a strenuous training that bids fair to bring results. 

In addition to the above-mentioned games, the majors are scheduled to meet Ole 
Miss, Miss. A. ^' M., and Mississippi College severaJ times, with possibly a few 
games not in the regular schedule.

Freshman Basketball 

This year's freshman team shows prospects of a successful season. ^VitIl plenty of 
material and several former high school stars from different parts of the state, the 
minors have a good chance to turn out a perfect machine. 

The minors showed up well in games with the Deaf and Dumb Institute and 
Mississippi College Papooses. Coach Zimoski is watching the freshmen eagerh, and 
no doubt sees good material for next season's vasrity in several of them. 

Rouse, freshman coach, has the following from which he'll [liclc a winiung team: 
Crawford, Francis, Moody, Butts, Blount, Bouchc, E\erett, M. Brooks, Freiderick- 
son, Rape, Loflin.

Girls Basketball Review 

The co-ed majors have begun activities on the basketball court for this season, and are 
making rapid progress under the able coaching of Mrs. Calvin Barbour, athletic director. Mrs. 
Barbour, after finishing a course at the University of Michigan, held the position of athletic 
director of the girls at the University of Mississippi for the past two years. She has already 
demonstrated her ability as a coach, and it is easily seen that she means business by the stiff 
practice the team has been put through since this season's opening. 

Winning two games and losing two, one an exhibition game, is a very encouraging beginning, 
and with the old Major fighting spirit prevailing, this year bids fair to be a winner and a strong 
contestant for state championship laurels. 

Last year was the co-ed Majors' first attempt at inter-collegiate basketball, but despite this 
fact, they made a creditable showing. 

Games this season are scheduled with Ole Miss, Mississippi Woman's College, Belhaven, Hill- 
man, Grenada, and the Mississippi Normal, and the co-eds are determined to win a majority of 
these games. 

This year's team is composed of Cynthia Thompson (captain), and Evalena Allen, guards; 
Louise Young and Emmie Lowe, centers; Elizabeth Setzler and Elise McCallum, forwards; with 
Alberta Campbell, Maggie Lee Harrel, Eurania Pyron, Helen Henderson, Arlete Tarlbert, Ruth 
Connerly, Cynthia Penn, Agnes Howie, and Gladys Howie, as substitutes.

Baseball Review^ 

Spring football was engaged in by the Majors, much to the detriment of baseball 
in '24. All of Coach Zimoski's time was given to the training of the football squad, 
and no regular schedule was arranged for the nine, who played only five games, win- 
ning three of these. 

The State Teachers' College at Hattiesburg was played a two-game series, with 
Millsaps making a clean sweep of the series. 

Although the Majors lost two out of three games played with Mississippi 
College, they accomplished a feat which only one other team was able to do last sea- 
son, and that was to shut out the Choctaws. 

Playing the first game of the series in the Jackson League park, they humbled 
the Choctaws, holding them scoreless and putting two runs across the plate. Dudley 
Culley hurled a splendid game, making his last appearance before Jackson fans as a 

This season there is an abundance of good material, and if Coach Zimoski decides 
to develop a team, a rattling good nine should be formed.

Millsaps Is again looking forward to a successful season on the tennis courts. 
The team of 1924, composed of R. L. Hunt and E. M. Chatoney, made a record of 
which IVIillsaps is indeed proud. In the state tournament held on the campus last 
spring, they defeated the Choctaws with ease in the semi-finals, and by brilliant play- 
ing won out over A. & M. in the finals, thus bringing state championship laurels to 
Millsaps. Hunt, in spite of a severe attack of nausea, put up a fight worthy of praise 
against Chapman of A. &: M., who won the singles laurels. 

After easily defeating the Choctaws in several matches. Hunt, Chatoney, and Prof. 
White, the tennis coach, went to IVIcComb, where they won both singles and doubles 
matches over amateur title contenders. Prof. White aiuiexed some honors himself in 
a singles match. 

Aspirants for lionors on the courts this year are: J. O. Harris, manager; Ci. H. 
Jones, Cj. E. Greenway, H. W. V. Vaughan, and R. C. West. 

Arrangements are being made for several matches with the Choctaws during the 
spring of tiiis year.

Tke Picture Tkat Spoke 

By G. E. Grkenway 

T IS a big mistake to study all night before an exam. Larry En vers real- 
ized this as, with bleared eyes, he watched the professor chalk the exam- 
ination questions on the board. He had needed the preparation bad 
enough, of course. He just had to pass this exam — near enough to 
flunking, as it was. 

The first three years of college had been easy. He had studied hard, 
and had made some excellent grades. This year, as a senior, it was dif- 
ferent. He was, to use his own words, "getting the rest of his education" 
— athletics, girls, and a very pleasant round of other college activities. 
Perhaps he had carried it too far. It wouldn't do to miss his degree by a flunk on 
the last examination. Hence the studious vigil of the night before. 

The figures on the blackboard seemed to elude his eyes, and shaped themselves 
before his mind only at enormous intervals. Almost mechanically he began his paper. 
He knew the subject fairly well, but the expression came with difficulty. As he 
wrote, his mind seemed to be clear; and he finished the first two answers with some 
degree of ease, and at the same time the caution of one who wrote with a college 
degree at stake. 

And then came the third question, brief, specific, and, worst of all, on a subject 
that he had entirely ignored in review. He remembered the very page of the book 
from which the question was taken; but for the life of him, he couldn't recall the 

"Um, uni — let's see." The answer seemed at his finger tips; but still it eluded 
him. He thought and thought till the figures appeared to dance before his eyes, and 
the waiting paper blurred and swam in his gaze. Yet no answer came. As if to dis- 
tract his mind still more, a new flock of wholly foreign ideas perched themselves at 
the edge of his consciousness; the queer figure of the slitted sunlight on the floor, 
a bird that had seen fit to poise himself outside the window, the indolent buzz of a 
bee. And through it all he felt the dull pain of reality. Miss this question — flunk 
the exam — a year's work wasted. Darn it all, anyhow! He just had to pass! 

And then his eyes caught the gleam of white paper glistening in front of him. 
That was Cairnsley Dodd's paper, of course. Old Cairnsley didn't know what it 
meant to flunk an exam. He glanced about him cautiously — no professor in sight, and 
the rest of the seniors were in front. 

Almost before he was conscious of his action, he was peering over the shoulder of 
the unsuspecting Dodd, and his pencil was racing over the paper, copying the third 


But wait a moment! There was one of the professors. He would have to wait 
a while. His eyes lifted a vacant stare into space. As he did so, he gave a sudden 
start. His gaze was centered on a large picture on the wall, the portrait of a man 
to whom greatness had brought success and remembrance as the founder of the college. 

In some way that picture had always held a peculiar interest for Larry. He 
remembered how, as a freshman, he had been attracted by that noble countenance and 
the ghostlike reflection of the student body in the glass of the frame. As the years 
had passed on he had come to understand better the man of the portrait, and to see 
how eminently fitting was the illusion of the picture — the ghost-students against the 
kindly backgroimd of the portrait. 

That grave and noble face, those kindly, searching eyes, the personality of the man, 
all these had influenced him before, but never so much as now. The wise eyes seemed 
to pierce him with their scrutiny, and the calm face appeared suddenly severe and 
stern. The Major had fought the battle squareh', and here he, Larry Envers, was 
cheating to win his. 

For a moment Larry dropped his gaze. Then, with what was almost a sob, he 
snatched the shameful page from his tablet, tearing the stolen answer in pieces. 

Li a minute he was back to work with a new vigor. The mists had cleared from 
his brain and he seemed to feel ^bout him the presence of the Major himself. Quickly 
and surely he finished the paper, leaving a blank space for the omitted question. \Vith 
a firm step he strode to the front and deposited his answers. 

The professor in charge noticed a peculiar glow in Larry's eyes. "\\'ell, Envers, 
how do you think you made it? Passed all right, I suppose?" 

The glow faded. "Em afraid not, professor. That third question hit me pretty 
hard. Could you let me know my grade tomorrow night, if I called you up? Ill 
be rather worried, you know." 

The professor smiled sympathetically. "I guess so. About nine o'clock will do. 
Hope it will be good news." 

But Larry knew better. Hour by hour his anxiety increased. On returning to 
his room he found a letter from a well-known firm offering him a very desirable position 
for the next year. And he cursed himself for an impressionable fool, losing a chance 
like that. Another year's work wasted, and probably his chance at the job, as well. 

After an almost sleepless night and an equally restless day, he found himself imac- 
countably drawn once more to the college chapel — to the picture of the Major. 

The chapel was \uicannily quiet, and he entered almost on tiptoe. The setting 
sun glowed in narrow slits through the high windows, and the slightest sounds came 
back twisted into weird echoes. L'P in the gloom the Major's picture seemed to smile 
down on him and Larry was sure that the serious eyes were kindlier than usual. 

Then the thing seemed different to Larry Envers. Somehow his worry had left 
him, and he felt glad and happy. What was a little defeat? He had done the right 
thing, after all. 

Bohashela, Mineteen Tzuenty-Fjve 

As he left the chapel he turned, and for one glorious moment smiled up through 
the gathering darkness to the other- man who had played a square game with life. 

Three hours later he telephoned the professor. With hardly a quiver in his voice 
he asked his grade of the day before. 

And back to his astonished ears the ai:s\ver came: "Why, yes, you passed. Pretty 
narrow squeeze, though. An exact seventy." And then in a lower and rather peculiar 
tone, "I don't know to this minute why I gave you that extra point." 

But, up in the darkness of the chapel, the Major smiled wisely and happih' as he 
kept his nightly vigil over the college and its men.
