^ ■ ^E write some things with the feeling that to do our best 
■ I ■ will be doing only a duty; other things are written be- 
^-^-^ cause we are expressing the things we want to say. 
Then it is that we get the pleasurable thrill of doing the thing 
nearest to our desire. In writing these words, the lattei 
is true. No man can inspire noble feelings and thoughts in others 
unless there is within him an innate fineness which is expressed 
in his every action and contact. 

There is in Millsaps College a man who is no respecter of 
persons, save by an impartial justice to all. He is a teacher who 
exemplifies his teaching by his life. His words are forever stamped 
in our hearts. Daily association with him in Lecture Halls causes 
us to realize that his Philosophy of Life is more than a mere 
mouthing of phrases; and we can say in truth that "He is a man, 
take him for all and all." To this man, Professor J. Reese Lin, 
these words are inscribed with deep gratitude and appreciation.

XN preparing this "Drnma ni the 1926-27 Millsaps College Life" 
there have been kept in mind the College and what it stands 
for; the organizations within; the different activities and inter- 
ests in which the students participate; portraying them accord- 
ing to the merits of each. The preparation of this Year Book 
has been long and diligent. No greater compensation can be imagined 
than that our efforts may in some manner be worthy of the Institution 
whose spirit we have sought herein to represent. 

Last year it was the Editor's idea to establish certain ideals which 
could be used permanently; such as, original Book Inserts; a yearly selec- 
tion of a representative boy and girl to be called Master Major and 
K^s~^^ // 'J Representative Co-ed; original and different backgrounds for each group 

of pictures; a real Feature Section; and, of course, individual pictures 
of every student. These ideals have been faithfully continued with a 
few innovations relative 10 the treatment of Book Inserts and an addi- 
^^ tion to the Feature Book. The Book Inserts are subjects which in actuality 

represent the Books they introduce. In the Feature Section there are pub- 
lished two short plays, poems, and articles written by students in College. 
This was done to encourage amateur writers among the students. 

I wish to express appreciation for the work done by each member of 
the Staff, without whose help the task would have been too great. To 
some not on the Staff I am particularly indebted. To Charles Cecil Combs, 
whose seasoned exper'ence, unfailing assistance, and skillful guidance 
have been invaluable in the preparation of this Annual, I am sincerely 
grateful. For designing and drawing four excellent and original cartoons 
which have added much to the decoration of the Class Section I am espe- 
cially grateful to Franklin \'aughan. 

Taking everything into consideration all in all the building of this 
volume has been a pleasant task and, in future years when harsh realities 
loom as clouds, it is hoped that these pages will awaken gladdened mem- 
ories of "Those College Days" and furnish a wealth of contentment to you. 

The Editor.

THE 1927 BOBASHELA OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



Sometning of tne Name and History 




VERY student of Millsaps probably knows that the word, "Bobashela" is of Indian 
origin and that it means "Good Friends." The exact derivation and nationality 
of the word seems to be clouded in mystery. Several tribes use it and different 
people attribute it to different nations. Most people agree that it is either a Choc- 
taw or a Chickasaw word and it is well-known that both tribes use it. The Liter- 
ary Editor, who is an amateur student and pseudo authority on both tribes, stoutly 
maintains that it is Choctaw. Another student of Indians in Mis5issippi claims 
that it is Chickasaw. A former Professor of Millsaps agrees that it is "either 
Choctaw or Chickasaw." An Editor-in-Chief of a recent issue points out that the 
word is mentioned in one of the first editions as of Choctaw origin. The present 
Editor is of the opinion that the weight of evidence is in favor of Choctaw. 

The first Bobashela was published in 1905 by the Literary Societies. Just when 
it was taken over by the Senior C ass remains for some future Editor-in-Chief to find out. 

One of the hard things to do is to find out something of the background of the Annual. As far 
as can be ascertained there is no complete file of the Bobashela. After a prolonged search twenty- 
issues were located. Seemingly there were no issues in either 1915 or 1918, though the account of 
"why not" or even "if" differs in the telling by various members who were of the respective grad- 
uating classes of the two years. It is extremely unfortunate that there is no complete file on the 
Campus. The fact that copies of the Bobashela can NOT be kept in the Library i-. proof that 
thev are desirable, although the reason for the disappearance of the copies is deplorable . 

Some friend of the College, alumnus, or even student wou'd do a worthwhile thing by col- 
lecting a complete file and placing it in the Library — properly chained down. Personally, we have 
found no task more pleasant than the necessarily hurried glancing through old copies and we 
feel that a complete file woubl be interesting to students past, present and to come. It is certain 
that such a file would be of great help to future Editors.

Friendship — Tke Spirit of Bobashela 



There is somethi:ig that ca.ls from witliin, 

That halds out a groping hand, 

Tliat longs for something, somebody 

That lan somehow, understand. 

There are things tliat we thiiil; Imt can't say 
For words fail us in expression; 

By some we are well understood 

Through channels of mutual affection. 

There are times when we falter and fear, 
When we almost lose faith in the world. 

When we need something to shield us 
From things that against us are hurled. 

^^'e find in True friendship that something 
To help us and strengtlun anew 

Our hopes and our tru^t in mankind; 

A friend — a True friend! Is that you?

"B^," the motto of the Millsaps Athletic Association, is indicative of the Majors' attitude 
toward all intercollegiate and intramural sports in which the students of Millsaps engage. Indi- 
vidual fair play and self control are the ideals to be instilled into every student as well as 
each player on the teams. Although the Major teams did not win a large percentage of the 
games this past season, the spirit of the Student Body was not drowned by disappointment. 

The Athletic Association is growing in importance every year, but it has not yet, as an organi- 
zation reached the ultimate value in service to the College and Student Body which it might, 
and for which many students have hoped. A good discussion of the possibilities of athletic 
developments at Millsaps was given in the 1926 Bobashela, and it is hoped that not many years 
will elapse before Millsaps will have the benefit of a corps of physical directors, an adequate 
gymnasium, and a healthv competition in wrestling, boxing, fencing, swinuniiig and track ; so 
that it could then be said in all truth that MILLSAPS MAKES MEN.

Trie Co-ed Athletic Association 

Sinre the ()rt;nnizatii)n of the Co-ed Athletic As>oi-i;itioii in 1922, there has been a steady and 
gradual j^rowth in athletic activities among the girls of the Millsaps student body. Each \ear 
a larger number of girls have been reached and with the interest taken by the College in providing 
a coach — Miss Dickerson in 1923-24 and Mrs. Barbour in 1924-25 — Co-ed athletics has come to be 
a vital part of the extra curricula phase of College Life. In 1925-26 Professor J. E. Stephens, who 
had so successfully coached the Grenada College teams, came to Millsaps and started coaching 
the Majorettes. A wonderful work was accomplished in training and developing a baTiner basket- 
ball team. As a result the Majorettes were claimants of the 1926 Championsliip of the State, 
winning all but one game. 

For the past few years, as has been seen, the only activity has been basketball. Since Millsaps 
is growing fast, especially in co-education, it will not be long before the girls will have other 
activities. A very progressive step would be the addition of other competitive sports such as 
vollev ball, tennis and indoor baseball. For, at present, only a small percentage of the girls 
actually participate in athletics and receive the physical benefits from such participation. 

During the past year a beginning was made toward a greater interest and larger participation 
in athletics for the girls by the inter-sorority and inter-dormitory basketball games which were 
enjoyable and beneficial. More interest would be augmented if some provision were made by the 
athletic associations for girls' tennis and volley ball. There are man\ of the C\i-eds who would 
heartily welcome tennis courts of their own. Indoor baseball is another game which would be of 
much interest and benefit to the girls. It could be played throughout the year. 

The Co-eds deserve credit not only for what they have done for themselves; and parentheti- 
cally, "for themselves" is literally and actually true, for all that has been done toward providing 
physical training facilities for the girls they have done with no outside assistance and very little 
encouragement; but also for the splendid manner in which they support the Majors in all 
phases of athletic activity.

Revie^v of the 1926-27 Foottall Season 

When the final curtain wps rung down upon the MiUsai)s Football Season at the end of the 
clash with Howard College of Birmingham on Thanksgiving Day, the Majors completed a year 
of gridiron history which was quite satisfactory to the students, although the team did not maintain 
the high position held by the 1925 squad in the S. I. A. A. 

With the gloomiest prospects possible at the beginning of the 1926 season, Coach Zimoski took 
a wealth of light, inexperienced material and attempted to do the improbable by creating a football 
machine that would compare favorably with the heavier, older squad of the year before. Not more 
than four men of any considerable experience had returned to school and it was around these men 
that the Coach hoped to build a football machine. Weight was lacking — the average for the entire 
squad was about 160 pounds. Such conditions do not usually make for a successful season. Yet, 
in the very first game of the season the Majors worked their surprise on the football fans of this 
section of the country. 

Against the University of Alabama, thrice Champions of the South, and once Champions of the 
Nation, the Major team managed to score eight first downs while their greatly superior opponents 
were scoring ten. Although the Majors were overwhelmed by a 53 to score, such a comparatively 
brilliant showing against tlie < 'liampions .gave great hopes to the Major backers for a season which 
would belie the pro.'^pect.s. Tlie crack of the machine which reached its climax in the Mississippi 
College tilt came as moic c.r a shock since it follow.^d the Alabama game. 

In the second clash of the ycnv with the Union University team from Jackson, Tennessee, the 
Purple showed great driving power ami inanamd to outplay their opponents decisively only to lose 
by a 20 to 19 score. 

Against Louisiana Southwestern tlie Majors prubaljly made their best showing of the year by 
handily defeating the much heavier eleven ijy a 12 to score. On the following week-end the Majors 
lost to the powerful Mississippi A. & M. team by a disheartening 34 to defeat. It was this game 
which gave the first indication of the crushing blow that followed during the Fair week. 

With a huge crowd of loyal Major supporters looking on, and with a multitude of Choctaws 
iiiini the reservation over at Clinton making themselves very much in evidence, the Purple fought 
I lie Indian squad to a standstill in the first half of the contest only to be overrun by superior 
strength in the last half of the match. The result of the massacre was 43 to 13. Selah! 

The deinon jinx that has a habit of pursuing inexperienced squads camped on the Majors' trail 
and the entire remainder of the season, save for the brilliant flash in the Louisiana College game, 
was a succession of defeat after defeat all featured Ijy hard luck. Against Louisiana Polytech the 
Majors fumbled disastrously and the Tech squad capitalized their advantage to win 13 to 7. It was 
,the following game against Louisiana .College that the Purple Wave gave some evidence of their 
early season form. The Majors romped easily over the Louisiana opponents by the score of 35 to 7. 
In the following game, with Crawford out of the lineup, the Millsaps morale completely cracked and 
Birmingham-Southern achieved a 41 to score over the shattered Major crew. 

Against the Centenary Gentlemen the Majors bucked up and after a stilf fight the Champions of 
the S. I, A. A. were able to score 34 points while the Majors could only threaten the Gentlemen goal. 
In the final match of the season, the Turkey Day clash with Howard, the Bulldog squad was able 
to eke out a win of 13 to 7 only by the virtue of the magic toe of Bancroft, diminutive Howard star. 

While the season just passed was the most disastrous experienced by the Millsaps squad in 
recent years, such could only have been expected froin the unauspicious omen attendant upon the 
beginning of the Major practice last September. In anticipation one can readily see that with the 
addition of more than twenty men from an excellent Freshm.an team and with the loss of only three 
men by graduation the Major team should easily rank among the best in the South for the 1927 
season. So much is past history. All eyes to the front and let's sei' what we can see. May the 
teanx win consistently in 1927.

Willana, the winsome Sopho- 
more, whose charming personality 
had won her way into the hearts 
of all Majors, was chosen sponsor 
by Captain Brooks for the 192G- 
27 loutball team. She gracetull-y 
represented the team in the

and was the embodiment of The 
Loyal Co-ed at every game. M,-iy

Herman F. Zimoski

Coach Zimoski came to Mill-, 
saps in 1922 when a mentor was 
needed to build up athletics from 
the bottom. He has had an up- 
hill flght but at various times ho 
has succeeded in having teams 
which were a credit both to the 
College and to coaching ability. 
To coach all sports successfully is 
too much for one man, or for two 
men. Coach Zimoski needs more 
assistance.

"Windy" played his first year

although a Sophomore was pro- 
nounced by the critics one of the 
best football men that this part 
of the realm has ever produced. 
This dashing back was voted the 
most valuable athlete in MiUsaps 
this year and was awarded the 
Brannon Silver Football Trophy. 
He weighs 102 pounds and lives

"Tiny" was the hea\ ii'st man 
on the team and one of the best 
tacklers. Unfortunately injuries 
kept him out of the line-up for a 
part of the time this year thougii 
he always went in to stem the 
tide of threatening attaelis. In 
the last game of the season he 
was able to end his football 
career at Millsaps by playing a 
great game from the l5ick-off to 
the last whistle. He weighs 214 
pounds. His home is at Walnut

Major Basketball 1926-27 




ITII n trim tli;it had a srcat chancp to go to the S. I. A. A. tournament as the 
MiKsis.-~ii.|ii ii-ipi I'Hciitative, Coach Van Hook, in charg-e of the Major Basketeers, 
expected this season to write basketljall history. The Freshman team of last year, 
wliich was little short of marvelous, returned intact, and Ifolstered by a great many 
lettermen from last year's varsity, a squad second to none in the -South was expected. 
At the forward position. Coach Van Hook had such men as the Weems twins, 
Krancis and Baxter; Crawford started the season at forward but was soon shifted to 
Kuard. At center Peevey. Blount and Williams fought matters out. At the guard 
IMisition Carruth, Rouse, Crawford, Byrd, Everett and Vance made things hot for each 
niliir. Ill fact, the entire bunch seemed to be giving such lively compatition and dis- 
plaxiiit; .Mi'h enthusiasm and ability that it was rather difficult to predict just how 
mall. IS vMinId stand at the end of the season. It w.as certainly safe to say. however, 
thai lit \ cr had there been such a group of performers as these on a Millsaps court. 

It was particularly encouraging to note the amount of new material after the 
rather disappointing failure of the sciuad in the year before when the Freshmen 
aggregation found almost as little dilTiculty in defeating the Varsity as did the other 
colleges. Regardless of the fact that the team as a team for the 1920 season was not up to the 
standard, there were enough men of ability to form an excellent background for this year's squad. 
With this residue material from last year and with the new material from the Freshman team. 
Coach Van Hook had at his finger tips some of the best basketball "fodder" in this part of the 
country. H'e did a wonderful work with this inaterial but it was unfortunate that the main oppo- 
nent of the Majors happened to produce an excellent team the same year that the Majors had 
developed into a first-class team. And while they did not, at the close of the season, have the bal- 
ance of power in the xietory eoluiiiii, Ihey held the admiration and liad the co-operation of the 
student body. 

With such material and witli suili i .laehinK, there is only one faeter which might be overlooked 
in the building of a team: that is, the proper attitude on the part of the players toward the coach 
and toward the training rules. Htretolore at Millsaps there have always been some players who 
break training; and a tendency for some players to play individual ball rather than to sacrifice 
personal glory for the good of the team and the school. Little or no trouble was anticipated in this 
line in the basketball squad and naturally complete co-operation and splendid physical condition 
wen' to be expected of all members of the team. 

l<'or next season, that of 1927-2S, the prospects are again very rosy, and with strict adherance to 
training rules and by dint of hard worlc Millsaps shoull have a splendid team iit 192S. With the 
Weems twins, Crawford, Carruth, Williams, Francis, Rouse and Baxter back from the '27 Varsity 
and with Wright. Bealle, Dorman. Welc-h, Hill, Touchstone, Marble, Wheeless and J. Byrd from the 
Minors of '27. the outlook is encouraging, and piospects good for a heavier balance in victories for 
the Season of 192S.

The Athletic Bowl, for which the students, faculty and the Alumni so enthusiastically con- 
tributed year before last, is gradually being completed. During 1925-26 the field, which had been 
graded, was sodded and allowed to settle. This year the cinder track was completed. It is now 
believed that track at Millsaps will come out of the oblivion in which it has rested and take its 
rightful place with the other sports. 

There is at Millsaps enough good track material to develop one of the best track teams in the 
State. There are for sprinters such men as Crawford, Francis, Caver, Holloman, Griffin and 
Dribben; for the quarter there are Carmichael, Lowry and Bishop; for the half. Nelson, Jones 
and Harris; at the longer distances Williamson, Stephens and Drane. Both Touchstone and 
Crawford could be developed into pole vaulters above the average. Thev are also potential 
broad jumpers. Rouse and Graham can throw the javelin in good form. Rouse could be de- 
veloped to throw the discus. Dribben, who is track manager this year, shows good form at the 
hurdles. These are just a few of the men at Millsaps who could be developed into a real track 
team. 

With the opening of the new cinder track and athletic field quite a squad began to report 
daily for practice, and Coach Zimoski put them through strenuous drills with a view toward 
sending representatives to the S. I. A. A. meet in the Spring; but at the present writing interest 
seems to be waning and to use the expression of a track man "track seems to be blowed up for 
this year," which is to be deplored. Millsaps could and should have a first class track team.

Major Baseball 




HE 1926 Major baseball team had a fair season, although the victories did not 
number as high as the defeats. Taking all things into consideration, the student 
body was very well pleased with the record. 

In Millsaps Crllege baseball is not playing so large a part in the athletic 
activity as it did in former days. Not so many years ago about the only athletic 
activity in the College was on the diamond; we have traditions of large crowds, 
intense enthusiasm, and honest-to-goodness baseball on the Major field. With the 
lifting of the ban on inter-collegiate sports in 1919 by the action of the two 
Methodist Conferences and putting the control of ath'etics under the Board of 
Trustees and Faculty, football began its rapid though steady growth in our College, 
as it has in nearly every other college and university, seemingly to the detriment 
of other sports, l^asketliall has managed to hold its own and even to grow in 
importance. 

But baseball has somehow or other seeined to drop in the scale of importance. Intercollegiate 
and practice game are regularly scheduled each Spring, but attendance is small and whole- 
hearted interest lacking, both on the part of the student body and the outside supporters. The 
usual Preachers' League vs. Faculty game is presented each Campus Day, April i, which draws 
well and provokes much mirth ; but on the whole the general enthusiastic support of baseball by 
students and athletes has slackened considerably. Just recently it was announced that some of the 
larger universities were planning to aliandon baseball a'together and not even attempt to assemble 
and train teams. This, we think, is too pessimistic. Millsaps will hardly have to take such a 
drastic step for it is believed that the fault is not entirely with local conditions that such a 
situation has arisen, and baseball will soon regain its rightful place in the athletic interests of 
the College. 

There were nid\ five men lost from the 1926 s(|uad an<l the 1927 team is not lacking in good 
material. The following lineup seems to be Coach Van Hook's regulars: Crawford c, Francis p, 
Blount lb. Bilbo 2b, Carruth ss, Byrd 3b, Kurts rf, Caver cf. Rouse If. He has some mighty 
good men in reserve, such as Peevey ib. Rape 2b, Moody p, Calhoun c, Swango p, Walton of. 
Brooks p, McManus c, Sessions 2b, Chapman ss, Shipman p, Fleming of, Ladner of. Wills 2h, 
Baker of, Tatum of, Baxter of, and several others. The Majors have some good ball players in 
the squad, but they seem to have gotten off on the wrong foot. They lost five out of the first six 
games pla\ed. 

Oldtimers, when they tell of the days that have gone, cause students of the present day to 
hope that they too will have a victorious team equal to that of the old stars of the diamond who 
won the State chainpionship back in 1916. We trust that the spirit of those past years will hover 
over the Majors as a constant reminder that to the faithful and earnest will come a lasting 
remembrance of another vear of work well done.

Tennis 



In 1925-26 the Millsaps tennis team won the State Singles and placed second in doubles, 
which victories were a source of much satisfaction to the Majors; for, with the growing efficiency 
of the tennis teains at Millsaps there is growing a larger interest on the part of the Student fiody 
and tennis is winning its rightful place among the intercollegiate sports of the College. 

beginning the 1926-27 season, the Varsity team composed of Whitehead, Blackwell, Fowler, 
Ford and Boswell with Whitehead as manager, won both sides of two doubles contests with 
Mississippi (\illege. A bit later in the season NN'hitehead and Fowler, Ford and Boswell defeated 
the Yazoo City teain^ in doubles. The team will contend in a state tournament at Mississippi 
A. & M. to determine the State representative to the S. I. A. A. tournament at Birmingham- 
Southern. 

Professor M. C. ^^'hite is coaching the team. Professor White was State Champion in singles 
year before last and runner-up last year. Under his able super\ ision the team is making steadv 
progress. Coach White has made several other matches, some of which will be played on Mill- 
saps courts. The courts were worked over at the beginning of the season, new back stops were 
built and a new court constructed on South Campus. These improvements will be to the advan- 
tage of both players and spectators. 

\\'hitehead, who is tennis manager, has de\eloped into a spleiulid net pla\er. Fowler is show- 
ing excellent form. Ford, who has taken the place of Blackwell ( wilhilrawn from school) is 
working hard and should make a good player. Boswell, High School Singles Champion last 
year, is showing real ability in all lines of the sport.

Golf 

Millsaps is one of the few colleges in the State, in the South as for that matter, that is the 
proud possessor of golf links. Year before last a movement was begun to construct a course; 
plans were immediately laid and work begun on the greens. Thus far little work other than 
that on the greens has been done, and yet the course is more than an ordinary one. The nine 
holes are scattered well over the North Campus that extends along West Street and toward 
As\lum Heights, affording excellent hazards and reasonably good fairways. 

A golf club was formed last year and some measure of organization was reached before the 
end of the school year, but no definite organization has been consummated for this \ear. There 
are a number of golf-fiends who regularly tramp the course between classes in the mornings or 
sojourn in the grove to the east searching for missing golf balls for the greater part of sunny 
afternoons. Regularly are heard the shouts of some one who has had the good fortune to make a 
hole in three or four or who has "broken" 50. Some of these are^ rapidly developing into po- 
tential rivals of Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen, while others seem to be doomed to the ranks 
of the "dub." There is, of course, the select circle of some half dozen or so who have made 
scores at one time or another low enough to earn the admiration of those who plod around in 
the 90's or above. 

Golf is growing in popularity, ho^vever, and it is probable that steps will be taken soon to 
encourage its growth by the expenditure of a little time and money on the course and the organiza- 
tion of a club that will actually and effectively function.

Tke Minors of 1926-27 




HE brightest year in the history of Minor football." Such were the words used by 
Millsaps students and supporters in referring to the closing freshman football season. 
With only one game lost and one tied, the Minors turned in a total of 146 points, 
while their opponents struggled to earn 39 over the Purple line. Much credit is 
due to Coach Van Hook for the manner in which he developed the team and 
successfully guided it through the season; at the same time much credit is due to 
the untiring efforts and splendid spirit demonstrated by the Frosh squad both in 
practice and in the games. 

In the practice game with the Mississippi School for the Deaf, the Minors gave 
the first evidence of the successful season which was to follow. Easily outplaying 
the "Dummies" in all branches of the game, the Minors won b3' a 32 to o score, 
although almost all of the twenty or more who had answered the call for practice played in the 
game. The next experimental affray resulted in another overwhelming victory for the Frosh 
eleven. Port Gibson College fell before the onrush of the husky backs and speedy ends of the 
Minors to the tune of 53 to 7. Actually, the Port Gibson score was not earned, resulting as it 
did after the umpire's whistle had blown. The score counted, nevertheless, and the Minors lost 
the honor of a white-wash score. 

During the State Fair, the first real contest of the year came. The heavy Clarke Memorial 
College eleven of Newton, fresh from the game with the Choctaw \'arsity, in which they held 
the Indians to a 21-point lead, invaded the camp of the Minors and carried off a hard-earned 
20 to o score. The defeat of the Millsaps Youngsters came directly as a result of their inex- 
perience and the superior ability of their opponents to take advantage of the breaks. 

In the fourth game of the season the Minors defeated the Hinds County Junior College 
team by a score of 34 to 6 in a game which, though loosely played, easily showed the Minors' 
superiority in all branches of the game. Then, just before the big game of their schedule — 
that with the Papooses of the Choctaw camp — the Freshmen took on the Delta State Teachers 
College. Despite the profusion of unfortunate fumbles by the Purple backfield, the Minors 
downed the Teachers by a score of 27 to 6. 

Then came ///<■ battle. The Freshmen were doped to go down before the Papoose outfit 
by a score of from two to four touchdowns. The Baby Choctaws were confident. They were a 
heavy and reasonably well-seasoned lot. But the Minors had more than their share of grit 
and tenacity. From the very opening whistle to the last two or three minutes of the fight, the 
Freshmen consistently outplayed the Redskins, and even in the last minutes when their strength 
was beginning to fail before the onrush of fresh Papoose warriors, they held their own and 
kept the threatening onslaught from bringing results. It ended in a scoreless tie, but with all 
deference to the ability of the Papoose eleven it must be said that the Minor squad emerged with 
the largest part of the laurel wreath of victory. 

It is particularly pleasing to the upper classmen and alumni that the Frosh should display 
such marked ability, since the Freshman s(iuad of today makes up the Varsity team of tomorrow. 
The training derived from active participation in the Freshman sports of College is the deter- 
mining factor in judging members for the Varsity teams for the following year. Such being 
the case, it is easily seen that football at Millsaps has a bright and brilliant future.

Freshman Basketball 



The Minors, wlmse iiiiliviilual pictures are shown above, opened the basketball season with 
a 26 to 6 victory over Jackson Hi. The entire Minor squad showed promise of at least a suc- 
cessful season. It looked as if we were going to have another Champion Freshman Team — there 
was a wealth of material and plenty of enthu.iasm in practice. Many of the freshmen came 
here with good records. But when the season was over the rosy prospects had gone glimmer- 
ing. Although the Freshmen scored 163 points to their opponents 177, the games won anc") lost 
were only three for the Frosh and four for opponents. The three victories were against high 
school teams. As a team nothing can be said for them, as individual players much can be 
said. Wright, center and high-scorer, was a player for several years during his h'gh school 
Avork. lie is a good floor general aiul a consistent pla\er. ^^'heele.s and Touchstone are speedy, 
hard-working forwards. At guaril litalle, Capt., and Oorman, are both good men. Other 
men who show up well are Aver\, understutlx to Wriglit, Marble, N^'elsh, B\rd, Hill, Hinson, 
Eichelberger and several others. 

The importance of Freshman coaching at Millsaps cannot be stres ed too much. What the 
Varsity teams will be depend on what the I'reshman teams are. With haphazard methods of 
Freshman coaching we camun expect winning \'arsity teams. Millsaps will continue to grow 
but to progress with other colleges we must ha\e an efhcient and complete coaching stafF.

Last year a decided step toward advancemeiit in student grverr.nieiu' at Millsaps was made 
when a Student Executive Board was organized to promote and super\ !se general activities in 
the college. The membership of the Board consists of representatives from the various organiza- 
tions in College as noted above. 

This year the Executive Board, though in its infanc\, has made the proper beginning bv 
showing that its function will eventuall\ mean what the name suggests, the regulation of student 
activities by student legislation. 

This Board, though working in co-operation with the facultv, has the power of formulating 
rules relative to the betterment of the >tudent body at large. Fliese rules ma\ be approved or 
vetoed by the facult\.

The boys of Millsaps who desire training .Tiid de\clopment in debating, pnblic speaking, and 
oratory, find practice in the literary societies of the college. The.se two societies trained and gave 
the college last year the champion debating team of the state. The Lamars contributed their share 
in winning this intercollegiate championship. The Lamar Literary Society is named for a noted 
statesman of Mississippi — L. Q. C Lamar.

This society has always been referred to as "the other literary society," probably due to the 
fact that it comes after the Lamars in the annual. To counterbalance that designation, they won 
four out of five debates held between the two societies last season. Each year there is one de- 
bater selected from each society for each intercollegiate debate. The Galloway Literarv Society 
is named for Bishop Charles B. (iallo\\a\.

All One Club 



In the Registrar's office is a record of the grades made by each student in Millsaps College. To 
become a member of the All One Club a student must have on that record during the current .year an 
average of 90 or above. The Club has no officers and holds no meetings but it is a decided honor to be 
listed as an All One Student. The name itself is an incentive for better effort on the part of students 
spurring them on toward the highest degree of intellectual efficiency. An improvement over present 
conditions would be the organization of this group into an active body the ideal and purpose of which, 
in addition to making 90 and above, would be to assist by tutoring, if necessary, other students to 
make All Ones; thereby making the general average higher and helping backward students.

The Science Club began to increase last year in membership and in activity under the leader- 
ship of Joe Price; this progress has continued with much profit to the members this year under 
the Presidency of Cirady Tarbutton. The Science Club meets once each month for the purpose 
of discussing scientific developments with reference to their application in daily life. These 
discussions have been both interesting and informative. The Club is composed not only of students 
who are interested in science but also of members of the faculty who add much to the educational 
value of the meetings.

the Junior, Sophomore and Freshman classes. The purpose of the Honor Council is to investigate 
all charges of cheating; to convict and pass sentence upon all those who are found guilty. The 
Honor System is an expression of self-assertion and self-jurisdiction which is typical of the 
growing independence among present day college students. In principle and purpose the Honor 
System is unexcelled, but in reality the Honor Council has not, as yet, reached its goal. As 
the College continues to grow it is hoped that there will be subsequent and equal improvement 
in the administration of the Honor System.

I'he diamntic t;ilent of Millsaps has not, as M't, been organized into a Dramatic Club, but 
with the initiation of the Millsaps Players, a club in infancy, something was accomplished that 
should have a broadening effect on education in Millsaps College. "The Noble Outcast" was 
presented last year by the Millsaps Players both at Millsaps and at several other schools within 
the State with success. This year "Ann-What's-Her-Name" was played before an appreciative 
audience in Millsaps College and also at Crystal Springs. The cast as a whole played their parts 
well. Lem Seawright, who played the part of Anthony Wheat, Peggy O'Neal as the maid, and 
I'lila McCleskey playing the Grandmother showed outstanding ability as amateur actors. If such 
talent were trained and developed it is possible that some day it could be asserted that such and 
such a fainous actor once played as an amateur on the Millsaps stage. 

Drama interprets the experiences of life; it appeals to the ear as well as to the eye, and to the 
heart as well as to the brain. Millsaps through the medium of a Dramatic Club would have an 
opportunity to train actors who ma\ in future years help to raise the ideals and standards of the 
theatre.

The need for a college band has been keenly felt b\' the students at Millsaps for maiiv vears. 
Last Spring they did their part in making their desire a reality by contributing no small sum for 
the equipment of a band. This year the band, under the direction of Roger Philp, has added 
much to entertainments given at the College and has been a great "pep" stimulant at the foot- 
ball games played in Jackson. At the time this is written there are rumors that the band is on 
the verge of disorganization. It is hoped that they are unfoun4ed. Such a thing would be de- 
plorable. Millsaps needs a first class band. Much practice is necessary to perfect a band. What- 
ever is necessary, whether it is a resident director or greater support from the student body, 
should be forthcoming. Millsaps must and will have a top-notch hand.

and are now. in a musical wav, representing their part of the student body at the different enter-

dents as well as college people. The girls, through the medium of the Curls' Ctlee CMub, are doing 
a good work in advertising the college. rhe\ made a ^ix-day tour of the state this season, and

The embryonic ministers of the student body are organized for the purpose of 
additional study and practice in their life work. There is no greater opportunity, at 
the present time, in any field than in religious work. Millsaps is fortunate in having 
a well-endowed Chair of Religious Education. No college in the state is better sit- 
uated in every way to produce out-standing preachers than Millsaps. The student 
preachers here through the medium of the League may study in their meetings all 
problems in a miniature way with which they will have to cope after entering the 
ministry.

See the row of shining goblets, 

I must taste them all ; 
Some are filled with sweetest nectar, 

Some with bitter gall. 

When I taste ethereal waters. 

Up the heights I go; 
Thence from this Aurora fountain, 

To the depths below. 

Every one must tread this pathway. 

Up the hill and down ; 
Up the lightway, down the nightway, 

There's no way around. 

Come with me upon the hilltops, 

Feel the rosy glow ; 
Let's forget the dark'ning shadows. 

In the vale below. 

But when you are drinking freely. 

From the bitter cup ; 
Know that now you're at the bottom, 

^ ou can but go up. 

Not alone is joy and gladness, 

Not alone is pain ; 
As a flower needs the sunshine, 

It must have the rain. 

Long ago on smooth paved highways, 
Every road but led to Rome ; 

Up and down the hills I travel. 
Hills that lead to Home. 

^Rlth Greer.

I'la/r: X'irginia 

(Scene: Library of a beautiful old Southern home, \^'ide glass doorway at C, leading into 
beautiful sun parlor, showing by an easel and other artist equipment, that it is used as a studio. 
Library table at C, large Morris chair at R, davenport at F, door at L. Interior decorated ^vith 
pictures and made comfortable looking with rugs, bookcases, etc. Mr. Sherwood is seated at R 
in Morris chair; Gilbert walks nervously up and down as curtain rises). 

Mr. Slier-zLocd: "Well, my boy, after the ceremony tonight the estate becomes yours. Seeins 
to me you might — er — might appear a little more exultant on your wedding night. 

Gilbert: "Why should I be happy? Father, love is the only thing that can make a man happy." 

Mr. Sherwood: "Tut, tut — wrong you are again. U'hat has come over >(iu? \'ou surel\ could 
not desire a fairer lady than Marion Fairchild?" 

Gilbert: "You are right there, father. Miss Fairchild is exceedingly beautiful, but surel\ 
you must know that it is not love that promotes this fair lady's acceptance?" 

Mr. S/iericood (sharply): "Why, then, has she given you the honor?" 

Gilbert (<u:earily stoppinr/ his pacing): "Simple enough! For generations the proud name 
of Fairchild has greatly desired to link itself with the e<iually proud and wealthier — especially 
wealthier — name of Sherwood, and . . . ." 

Mr. Sherwood (abruptly) : "Gilbert, this is the second time you have uttered that statement, 
let it be the last. There are dozens of men ^vho would gladly change places with you tonight. 
Your trip abroad has certainly left you with ([ueer ideas. (Rising a[ul exiting at L) Remember, 
in just two hours." 

Gilbert: "Two hours and the greatest crime a man can do will be done. And yet, what else 
could I do? Father has given me everything, more than my own father could ever have done 
had he lived. He has made my art possible. I couldn't refuse him this one thing. (Goes into 
the sun parlor, stands before t/ie easel, and removes (t\ cover, under wliicli is tlie painting of a 
beautiful i/irl). Beryl, Ber\l, you'll never imderstand — that's why I haven't written. I have 
never broken tny promise to you. I am true in my heart. Ah, those dear old days in old sunnv 
Italy. (Covers picture and comes back into library). 

(Tony BoUniski comes slowly out from, behind a large fern in the sun-parlor wliere he lias 
been concealed since the bet/innin// of the play). 

Tony: "Oh, Meesta Gilbe't, you no lova Mees Beryl?" 

Gilbert: "My Lord! Tony Roliniski! Where did you come from?" 

Tony: "Italia." 

Gilbert (excitedly) : "Tony, for Heaven's sake explain. \\'hat are you doing in America? 
Two months ago I left you safe in Italy selling roses to the tourists at Nance, a respectable bov 
taking violin lessons from Ber — Miss Donizetti and today you are a tramp. Explain!" 

Tony ((jrinninij) : "Oh, Meesta Gilbe't not getta angr'; Mees Beryl and Ton' waita longa 
time and not getta let', and Messa Beryl she now getta seek. (Tony's c/rin changes to a sob. 
Gilbert holds him by the shoudcrs). 

Gilbert (excitedly) : "Tony, go on!" 

Tony: "Theen Mees Beryl she getta sad an' sad — she not tella me why, but all a da sama I 
know — she not getta let's from a you. You not write?" 

Gilbert: "No, Tony, no I couldn't — but go on." 

Tony: "Theen I theenk how Mees Beryl taka me one poor leettle rosa boy an' giva me da 
viol'n less'. Theen I a say. Ton' you a gotta hnda that Meesta Art Man whic' paint Mees

get mar'ied an leave a Mees Beryl ?" 

Gilbert: "Tony, don't! It isn't my fault. It is my duty to marry Miss Fairchild. It is my 
guardian's wish, not mine. (Turns and iL-alks lii/// his hack to Tony. Tony drains a revolver 
from his bosom and shoots Gilbert in the shoulder. Gilbert staggers, then falls limp to the floor.) 

Tony (pushing revolver into his bosom): "I lova yo', Meesta Gilbe't, I love you, but now you 
don' hava to marra' de lad' you a nota love'." (Rushes out at C).

Scene II 
(Added to ease the author's conscience) 

(Scene: Same as before only one month later. CJiibert with his arm in a sling is seated in 
Morris chair at R. His easel is beside him). 

Mr. Sherivood: "Well, my boy, how is that arm this morning? Still mourning because you are 
unable to paint— youth is so impatient." 

Gilbert: "Yes, father, so much idleness is almost unbearable." 

Mr. Sherivood (angrily): "If I ever lay eyes on that rascal who had the nerve to shoot you 
I'll fix him. Poor excuses — these detectives we have in this State." 

Gilbert: "Yes, the detectives are slow in solving this mystery (aside) especially since I bribed 
them. I couldn't tell on Tony." 

Air. Sherivood: "One month ago today you were to be married. Oh, by the way, I see that 
Miss Fairchild is traveling with her mother." 

Gilbert: "Yes, I am discarded (aside), thanks to Tony." 

Mr. Sherwood: "Strange things — women — (observing for the first time the picture on the 
easel). Why, Gilbert, who in the name of Heaven in this girl? I-I've seen her face. Could it 
be — no it couldn't be — but the eyes are the same . . . . " 

Gilbert: "Why, father, that is the dearest — er — I mean a charming young lady in Italy, the 
daughter of a famous violinist — only — " 

Mr. Sherwood: "But her name Gilbert — her name?" 

Gilbert: "Beryl Donizetti — " 

Mr. Sherwood (grasping the back of the chair): "Donnizetti? Donnizetti ? Gilbert, while 
you were abroad you traveled under the name of Brown, did you not?" 

Gilbert (surprised) : "Why, yes, you advised me to, since father had studied in Italy." 

(Enter maid at L). 

Maid: "A young lady to see you, sir, in private, no card." 

Mr. Sherwood: "Show her in, Julia." (Gilbert gels up slowly and exits at C. Enters Beryl 
Donizetti, plainly dressed in traveling suit, very erect and proud). 

Beryl: "Mr. Sherwood, I have been asked to give you this." (Hands him a letter. Ji'ith a 
bewildered look he, takes the letter and reads): 

"My dear father: Yes, I dare call you that, for you are my father, and to me you will always 
be dear. After twenty years of exile I come asking for forgiveness. I know I did wrong and 
yet I was so young and mother was gone and I was so happy until Gaetano's death. He made 
me so happy. I did wrong only in that I disobeyed you and broke my promise to mother to obey 
you always. I have longed for you for years, but my pride — the Sherwood pride — held me 
back. Now, it is different. I have, the doctors say, only a few more months to live. Father, I 
can not die without seeing you! I came to America. I am sending you my child, Beryl, do unto 
her as you would to me. Your sorrowing child, Marv." 

(Covers his face with his hands). 

Mr. Sherwood: "Forgive me — oh God: Forgive me, Mary! Mary!" 

Beryl: "Don't, grandfather, don't! It isn't too late to mend." 

Mr. Slierwfood: "And to think I tried to ruin Ciilbert's life in the same way. Oh, what a fool 
you've been Sherwood." (Enter Gilbert from C). 

Gilbert: "Beryl! You here!" 

Beryl: "Gilbert, not you!" 

Mr. Sherwood: "Gilbert, you knew my grandchild, Beryl, before I did. (Draws Beryl to 
him and takes Gilbert's hand). "Now, my dear boy, you know my hidden sorrow, which has 
turned into a blessing. Beryl, he has been true all the time in his heart. It has taken me twenty- 
five years to learn my lesson, but now I have it: 'Let love run its own race, a helping hand only 
becomes a stumbling block.' " (Places Beryl's hand in Gilbert's and exits at L, leaving them 
together.)

Colleg( 




N ideal college is one in which the co-operation between faculty and students is 
harmonious; and one in which both are striving toward a definite aim. That aim 
to be the training of men and women for efficient citizenship. 

Colleges exist for two purposes ; first, to train men and women for certain pro- 
fessions ; second, to provide an opportunity for training and research without 
regard to immediate utility; to instill into the individual certain fundamentals and 
ideals which will be used in the important activities of life; to train men and women 
whn will in some degree become leaders among men; to educate the intellect of men 
and women who are to rise above the ranks, and to teach them to reason well in 
all matters. The second purpose just stated should be the primary aim of the college, for the man 
of a special skill may be turned into an unskilled laborer over night. The world needs men and 
women who are far sighted; who can think and do many things intelligently. 

Life takes on a new meaning for the freshman in college. His first two vears are filled with 
startling events. Goethe says character is formed "In the stream of the world," not in stillness 
and isolation, but in the fast-moving, busy world. The college freshman is just entering into 
the activities of this fast-moving world. His training should be that which will form habits 
of upright character and such that will induct him into the major activities of life. 

One should go to college for work, for discipline and training of the mental faculties and 
for the broadening effect of life in a sort of miniature world in which the study of books is onlv 
one of the many interests. One comes out of college into the modern world with a broadened 
point of view, a quickened perception, and a training that will in, some degrees make him a poten- 
tial leader. If he has got less out of his four years' training in college his time and effort have 
not been worth the trouble. 

The college-trained man and woman has many times the chances of the other of becoming 
a citizen of influence and importance. This has been proved by an investigation of the "Who's 
Who in America." A college-trained thinker with initiative can do much more toward etficientlv 
developing his community, state and nation than the man without college training.

Doll sat back against the wail, trying to think up a pun; the Little Tin Soldier 
kept a vigilant guard; even the Flapper Doll was quite prim. The clock on the 
wall began to strike. The Picture Hook flew open to a page where there was a 
single red lierry — or maybe it was a Cherry, at any rate it was not green. The 
jumping Jack, who had been poised in mid-air, jumped. There was a great com- 
motion. Only Humpty-Dumpty sat still. "I thought that was a Millsaps bell," 
said the Ducky Duck, and he paddled around the room in a logical wav, then 
came and stood by the "Made in (jermany" Sheep. 

At this point a sad voice said, "Millsaps — ah, those roguish students, changing 
us into roly-polies, gimcracks, and what-nots. I don't know wh\ the\ did it, unless 
the Sheep over there made them all want to get out and go to Cjermany to hear those jokes for 
themselves." 

"Not I," said the "Made in Clermany" Sheep, "I think the one who caused this was the Tin 
Soldier. He never cut a class and they took the first opportunity to get a rest." 
"Crav — er, I mean Tin Soldier, what have you to say for yourself?" 

"Don't remind me of those classes, I am resting. However, I am not to lilame for that trick." 
And he looked continuously at the ceiling. 

"I propose that we have a trial and see just who i> to blame f(U- all this," said the Red Red 
Rooster. "It might have been that Chnke Berry over there." 

At this the Berr\ popped right out of the Picture Book and turned quite purple. "How dare 
you call me a ("lioke Berry ! I'm a Cherry — a Cherry, do you understand?" 
"I beg vour pardon, Mr. Cherry — of course you are a Cherry." 

It was quite evident, though, that the Cherr\' was in a bad humor, which was as out of the 
ordinary as could be. "It is that Egg over there that got us into this, him with his — " 
At this Humpty-Dumpty rolled right off the table and began to talk excitedlv. 
"The house will come to order, and we'll try this out and see who is responsible for it," 
said the Master of Ceremonies. 

"Who's going to be the Judge?" piped up a tinkly voice that belonged to a little Iron Bank, 
shaped exactly like a wobbly pig, which was rooting up peiuiies on the floor. 

"Nobody would ever say that Mr. H. Hooligan caused them to do it. They liked him too 
well. He'll be the Judge." This smiling pers(niage bowed so low that his tin can hat almost 
came off. 

"Now the first on trial is the Flapper Doll." 
"Honorable Judge, the freshmen liked my English Parallels." 
"All right, next. Jack-in-the-Box ?" 

The lid sprang back and out popped a Layman Doll with specs dangling from a 
after announcing Religious Week eased back ItUo his box anil pulled down the lid. 
"I'he Dilapidated Wooden Doll !" 
" [udge, I was a great man with the ladies, 
like this." 

I'he Clothespin Doll, wearing white socks; the Clingerbread, with a vivisected frog; the 
Little Cowboy, riding his Hobby Horse; the little Parisian Mannikin, gesticulating and crying, 
"Mon Cher, Mon Cher," were called in turn, and each denied the charge. The Jumping Jack, 
with an educated look, was still jumping and saying excitedly, "Interestingly enough — " when 
the doin- to the auditorium burst open arul in rushcil the shouting stuilents — and .\pril the First

Who s Who Election Revle^v 

AST year the Editor conceived the idea of the election each year of a Master 
Major and a Representative Co-ed, the two honors being the highest which the 
Student Body could bestow on two of their classmates. Only Seniors are eligible 
for the two honors. It has been carried out this year, and it is hoped that it will 
become one of the permanent honors in the College. The writer really started t > 
write something humorous, but decided that the above should be said, and no 
lietter pla^e than this could be found. The original intention will now be at- 
tempted. Anent this couple this year — well, we wish them peace. Oreat minds run 
ill the same channels. This time a lot of them did — in two channels — result: 
Dorman and Drane made a tie of it for the Greenest Freshman. 

Lem Seawright is the most original. Why didn't the faculty leave him alone 
\\ ith the Jazz Baby? Not onlv original, but witty and versatile as well. Elected on three things! 
We wonder if his sinile had anything to do with it. A good many of the students got votes for 
the \\'orst Woman-llater — "(ioodness, inaybe they'll outgrow it" (this from some of the co-eds). 
How does it feel to be a Dignified Senior? We'd like to try it. Here's your chance, Freshies, 
start early. 

Evervhodv has his favorite professor, and all of them got mentioned, but we take our hats 
off to "Happy." He beats them all cold. 

Wonder if the Jolliest Junior of today will be the Dignifieil Senior of toinorrow ? You'd 
better practice up on your stuff, Dick. 

Our Most Handsome man leaves us this \ear. Take note of that, you boys who were dis- 
appointed this year; every dog has his day. 

We hardly think it was fair abnut the Superiority Complex — so many didn't know what it 
meant — thought it took two to make the thing. Well, at an\ rate, we hope they were no* seeing 
double. 

By the way, it isn't so great to be an Editor after all, so the present one says (consider that. 
Future Aspirants). Even if she was elected the Busiest Student and the Most Capable — she 
got two votes (original) for being the Biggest Bore. 

It must be great to be the Best Athlete, without any opposition to speak of — Crawford made 
a Home-Run here. This Who's Who ballot is a puzzle, anvhoxv. \\'ho can tell the difference 
between the Most Popular Man and the Master Major? Ihe answer is, the two are the same. 
They were intended to be "checks" on each other; as well as the two, the Most Popular CJirl 
and the Representative Co-ed. 

It is a shame, though, that some of us do not vote just like we feel about these Who's ^^'ho 
contests — perhaps it isn't well that we would at that, for some of the places would have one 
vote each for every student in college. 

Screet must have been practicing her art — sevent\ -seven votes! . Has she been flirting 
with that many? Looks funny — it do! 

Let's see, who was it said that laughing \vas healthy? Take a look at the Biggest CSiggler — 
doesn't it pay? 

The Campus Sheik must have earned his title — he got sixteen votes for Beau Brunnnell as 
well. 

The Peppiest Student says that it is hard to live up to his reputation these spring days.

Snipes 

.7 Play by Rohirt Fliininti 

Scene I 

(The scene Is in the office of the Morning Herald, a newspaper, in the city of Jacl<son, Mississippi. 
The paper is about two years old, not having been established at the time of the present writing. 
The time is the near future; 1930 will do as well as not as the present Chamber of Commerce hopes 
to have the population increased to about fifty thousand souls by then. There are in the room 
perhaps seven or eight desks with piles of paper on each one. There are men at work at all but 
two of the desks; there are three doors to the room; one at the left which opens into the Editor's 
office, one at the right which opens into the pressroom, and the one at the rear which opens to the 
general public). 

The door at the rear opens and John Gay, the star reporter of the Herald and also the rival of 
Frank Locke for the hand of Ruth Ellison, enters. The other men look up and nod a Kreetinj^ as 
he comes in. He goes to a vacant desk, picks up a handful of papers, scans them, and puts them 
down. He then removes his hat, puts it on the desk, and goes to the center of the room. Turns, 
faces the others and speaks. 

Gay: "Fellows, come here for a minute. I want to let you in on a secret." 

(Tliey all rrotcd around him). 

Gay: "All of you kno^v how that insect, Locke, moons around all day, dreaming of the time 
when the Big Jioss will send him out to cover a murder, robbery, or some kind of mystery, don't 
you?" 

(Thfy all nod assent. Some grunt, and others say, "Yes"). 

Gay: "Well, Fve got a" scheme that will make him the laughing stock of everybody. If it's 
carried out right. If you want to try it, Fll see that it's done right, myself. What do you say?'' 

(T/iey all appreciate a good joke so they shout, "Good"). 

Gay: "All right! But don't yell so loud. The scheme is this — Fll go downstairs, call Locke 
on the phone, disguising my voice like the Boss's, and tell him that the cops are going to raid the 
old deserted Handers house on Nevada street about 9:30 tonight, and that we want him to cover 
it, doing it in about four hundred words. This whole thing will be just a Snipe Hunt for him. 
There won't be any police raid, and he'll be the only one in the house. Do you think we 
can do it?" 

(They nod, grunt and say "Yes" in assent). 

Gay: "Fll be going on down before he comes on up byt you all be sure and keep mum about 
it, or Fm liable to get canned, (lie picks up his hat and goes out the rear door, they go hack /ot 
their icork. The noise of the typeivriters begins, and directly Locke, the dreamer, enters by the' 
rear door. The others keep at their ivork and do not look up). 

Locke: "Hello, fellows. How are you all?" 

(They keep at their ivork, grunting a response to Locke's greeting, lie notices this, then 
smiles as if he thoug/it of something). 

Locke: "Have a cigar, any of you?" 

(They all look up suddenly, filled <with interest). 

Locke: "Fd enjoy giving you the cigars, but I haven't any, see?" 

(Then Jones, the champion smoker of the office, bursts loose). 

Jones: "For the love of Mike! Sit down and shut up!" 

Locke: "With the help of God, I think I shall." 

(As he sits doivn the Editor comes from his office and leaves by the rear door. There is 
silence, save for the noise of the type'writers, for a minute or tiuo, there the telephone on Locke's 
desk rings, fie ansivers it). 

Locke: "Hello! Yes Yes Sure (interested). All 

right, Fll do it (smiling)." 

(He puts the receiver in place, takes his hat, and goes out of the rear door. After he goes out 
the other men turn around and wink at each other). 

CURTAIN 
Scene II 

(The scene is in the basement of the old Handers house on Nevada street. The basement is 
perhaps ten feet high, and is piled nearly to the top with what looks like egg crates. In the center 
of the space about fifteen feet square there is a table around which are four chairs. Surrounding 
the table and chairs are the crates. Evidently this is a storehouse for some gang of crooks, for an 
honest person w^ould hardly store his goods in an abandoned house on a dark street in the suburbs 
of a city. At this time no one is in the room. The room is dark, and the audience cannot see any of 



Page one hundred seventy-thri

its contents. ThiTe are two doors, one on the right which leads underground to the garage, and the 
one on the left which leads to the kitchen. The door on the ri.ght opens, a beam of light from a 
tlashll.^ht plays about the room; then two men enter. The man with a flashlight goes to the center 
of the room, turns on the electric light, and puts the flashlight in his pocket. The audience can 
see the contents of the room now. One man is Judge Handers, the owner of the house; the other is 
his secretary. V. H. Burkett. Both are middle-aged men.) 

Btirk: "Judge, you sure are a smart man. Nobody but you would ever have thought of out- 
fitting the basement to this old house into a storehouse for the liquor. And it was a good scheme 
of viHirs to move out in the rouMtr\ and pretend to be farming. (He s/iakrs his head txisely). 

Jiidt/e 11.: "Hurk, a successful bootlegger like any other successful business man must use his 
brains as well as his vitality, he must take advantage of every little trick of the trade that works 
in his favor, whether it works to the other fellow's advantage or not. So, Burk, whv not have a 
whiskey warehouse in the basement of this old house which everyone thinks I have left to the 
ravages of time? The upper part has served its purpose; the basement is serving its purpose 
now. (After a pause) Burk, have you heard about the Six Best Cellars?" 

Burk: "No, sir. Unless it's about the six best selling books of a year." 

Judi/e II.: "That's not it. I'll wager that this ( pointuu/ In the cases) is one of the Six Best 
Cellars in the South, bar none." 

Burk (Innking at his ii-ateh): "I wonder what's keeping 'Red.' He was supposed to be here 
ten minutes ago." 

Judge //..■ "Aw, probably delayed by some trivial matter, (iive him time, he'll be here; he 
always is." (.Is he finishes tlie statement, "Red" enters from t/ie rii/ht door). 

"Red": "Good evening. Judge. Hello, Burk." 

Burk: "How come you so late?" 

.Judge //..• "No car trouble was it?" 

Red: "Nothing serious. I just had to stop in town a few mituites." 

Judge II. : "When are the others going to get here?" 

"Red": "they'll all be here in about ten minutes." 

Hurk: "Let's check o\er tonight's dcliverie;.. (T/iey go to the right side of tlie room and look 
at the eases). 

Judge II.: "We'll have to get out a hundretl and fift\ cases' tonight, and \ye might as well 
start checking them out now. (He takes a fezc papers from the imier pocket of his coat). Here 
are four cases for Dr. Christian, first; (they take doiin four cases and mark M. II'. C. on the lop 
of them ii:ith chalk) and there are s!x cases for H. Z. Frederick (they take dozen six cases and 
mark II. /. F. on them. Il'hile this is going on the door on the left opens softly, and Locke sticks 
his head inside. Then, the riglit door opens, three men come in, and exchange greetings ivith the 
others. I.oike liastily takes his head hack and doses the door. One of the men. Jim, hands the 
Judge a telegram). 

Jim: "Judge, here's a telegram that came fur \(iu just befcue we left." (Tlie Judge takes the 
telegram, opens it and reads it). 

Judge II.: "It says, "The schooner 'Hiram of Tyre' was towed into Cnilfport at seven o'clock 
this evening.' Well, that delays our shipment a great deal. \\'e haye got along all right thus 
far, but a bump now and then is bound to come. We shouldn't blame the poor fellows for being 
caught. I am sure they did their best — but they ought to have been more careful. Well, let's get 
to work and get these consignments off. Here are five cases each for D. K. Martin and R. M. 
Henderson (they take doivn ten cases and mark them icith initials as before) and seven, ca-e:i 
each for B. M. Ernest, J. W. Franklin and A. H. ' Porter (they take tloii-n tii-enty-one cases and 
mark them) and six cases for . . . . " 

(The door on the right opens suddenly, the Judge and his men run for the otiier door, ii-hic'f 
Locke opens and stands confronting them ivith a rei'oli'er j . 

Locke: "Stick 'em up. I'm holding trumps." 

(They extend their liands to^vard the ceilim/. Tlie poliie lome in through the right door 
and seanli tlie men for n.Leapons. They find a re-vol'ver on eaili on •>. 

The Chief: "We have got you now. Judge, l.ocke, \vh;it in the dickens are \(ni doing here?" 

Locke: "The boss told me at five o'clock this afternoon that \ ou were g<.ing to make a raid 
tonight, and for me to cover it. So, I'm here." 

(The Chief looks puzzled, then hursts out laughina) . 

Locke: "What are you laughing at?" 

The Chief: "We didn't know we were coming here vintil thirty minutes ago. I think some- 
body had sent you out on a \vild goose chase, or — er — to hunt snipes." 

Locke (laughing) : "Snipes, or no snipes, I am covering this raid."

SUPER POWER AND INDUSTRIES 

Only a few years ago Massachusetts led North Carolina as a textile 
manufacturing state. North Carolina brought super-power within 
the state, and today North Carolina leads Massachusetts in textile 
mills. 

Industries follow in the wake of super-power development, for an 
abundancy of electric power is essential to manufacturing economy. 
Mississippi is the second largest producer of cotton in this country. 
There are very few textile mills. 

Mississippi Can Offer the Manufacturer 
AN IDEAL CLIMATE CHEAP LABOR 

And Now: Abundance of Economical Power

THE 1927 BOBASHELA OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



ProfesMir Lin says that we go by Leaps in our Thinking. I must have had a great big 
mental bound, followed by a terrific Thump, just before I started writing this. I find that 
writing without thoughts is as difficult as doing anything else sans thinking. My mind seems a 
complete vacuum. The building of this " maslnpirce" is almost over. Just the "cornice" to be 
added. Somewhere, perhaps it was in this space, the Editor of the 1936 Boba-shela wrote that the 
First Co-Rd Editor was making wild promises about getting out a "better" Annual in 1927. 
Well, you be the Judge. The Late War was fought to end All wars. From the looks of World 
Affairs now it seems that the Next War will be fought to end all Debts. It is hoped that such 
a thing does not become contagious, for the Business Manager still has a lot of collecting to do — 
getting the money for all these "sold" annuals. It is hard to say whether I feel better from the 
relief of finishing this thing or what. Anwvay, the nearer I get to the last line the better I feel. 
Lots of times during the year I have felt like saying a lot of hard, plain facts about everyone 
who has made this job ilifficult for ine (see page 164, it reads like a prophecy), but right now 
1 feel \'ery forgiving 1 feel sort of Right and Proud that I haven't, for I DO feel as if it has 
been worth it. In fact, I feel like the fellow who said that he was proud of the fact that he 
had refrained t rom beating his wife during the thirty-five years that they had been married. 
When asked if he thought that he deserved credit for that, he replied, "I certainly do, when I 
remember the hundreds of times that I felt like it and wanted to.'' Ves, "the course" is worth 
the price, and the "little good does counter-balance the bad," so — so, GOOD-l/yef 

Sarah Hester Legg.
