WILLIAM MARION KETHLEY, LL. D. 

President 

Delta State Teachers College 



As the beautyof our Delta country is reflected in the 
beauty and fragrance of the magnolia blossom, so is the 
characterand life of our land reflected in the loveliness 
and strength of character of our young women and young 
men. Congratulations to you who give this 1954 edition 
of "The Broom" to the history of Delta State in selecting 
as a theme the magnolia blossom. 



W. M. KETHLEY 




JOE FARRAR, Ph.D. 
Dean of the Faculty 
Delta State Teachers College 



Officially the state flower of Mississippi is the Mag- 
nolia, around which you have built the theme of "The 
Broom" . In reality the flower of Mississippi is its youth — 
you and thousands of others like you. If the State ever 
bursts into bloom in keeping with its potential, it will do 
so, not because it is the blossoming season for the Mag- 
nolia, but because you — all of you — blossom into fine and 
forceful young men and women willing and prepared to 
assume yourresponsibilities as leaders in Mississippi's pro- 
gress. It is a magnificent challenge you face. I dare you 
to meet it head on . 

Sincerely, 

Joe Farrar

most beautiful girl from pictures

1347 SIXTH AVENUE, NEW YORK 19, N. Y. • CIRCLE S-5200 



December 10, 1953 



Dr. DoxLe Shuler 
600 Sixth Avenue 
Cleveland, Mississippi 

Dear Dr. Shuler: 

As an old Southerner (I used to hang around South 
Street on the Lower East Side), I'm honored and happy to act as 
judge in the contest to select the most beautiful girl at Delta 
State Teachers College. 

I've made my decision, and I'm passing it along 
with some misgivings, because (a) I'd like to give each contestant 
a prize, and (b) I know how wrong I can bo — after all, I'm the 
fellow who, 16 years ago, refused to hire Maiy Martin. 

May I say, however, that I gat a kick out of seeing 
all the photos. Remembering 7*iat some of my old school teachers 
looked like, it's nice to realize that some of today's kids — in 
the South, at least — are going to get a break. 

Sincerely, 



mOST BfflUTIfUL

We dedicate this section to the memory of 
Freddy Black, a member of the Sophomore Class at 
Delta State, who was accidentally drowned during 
the Christmas Holidays . Freddy was the son of Mr. 
and Mrs . H . S . Black of Jennie, Arkansas . He was 
a quarterback on the Delta State football team, 
a member of the track team, and had been elected 
one of the "Favorites" of the Sophomore Class. 
His loss is deeply regretted by all of the students 
and the faculty at Delta State.

ence. These two were Jimmy Sanders and Billy Hubbard. Of 
course, Willo Goodwin, Jack Whites, Dick Goodman, George 
Gronerand all the other old heads were right in there fighting 
and they went into the Arkansas A. and M. game with high 
hopes of making it a 3-0 record. But disaster struck as did an 
accurate toe In the last few seconds of play and the Greenies 
dropped a hard to the Boll Weevils. (Continued) 









AUSTIN PEAY 20 DELTA STATE 

ARKANSAS A&M 22 DELTA STATE 20 

Austin Peay followed with a 20-0 decision, but the Deltans 
turned in what was described by the coaches and fans alike as 
oneof the hardest fought and best games of the year. Then came 
the ml I toppers. They took advantage of their many breaks and 
the Greenies injuries to trip their opponents by a close three 
point decision. But there is where the Greenies Grid Machine 
became a destructive menace. Livingston walked on Delta Field 
readyto trip the Greenies to shreds, but when the dust had settled 
and our halfbacks had retired for the night, the score was a 
mere 67-6 in favor of a revamped Statesmen squad. During these 
games, two new linemen showed what fans could expect in years 
to come. (Continued) 











WESTERN KENTUCKY 21 DELTA STATE 19 

LIVINGSTON STATE 6 DELTA STATE 67 

Carl "Bull" Smith and Franklin "Bird dog" Talbert looked 
like the answer to Coach Chadwick's dream of six-foot-plus ends 
with plenty of beef to spare. But the routing did not stop there. 
Nextweek, theMuleridersof Southern State fell to a merciless 
onslaught at the hands of the tough Delta line and the array of 
fleety backs. Then along with the rain and slosh, the Lions of 
TroyStateof Alabama came to Delta Field. A bit of last-minute 
strategy by the Deltans gave the Trojans two points, but also 
brought the ball out to the 20-yard line, where big George 
Gronerputatoe in the wet pigskin that carried it to the Trojan 
six and broke their back. Final count. Delta six; Troy two.

SOUTHERN STATE DELTA STATE 42 

TROY STATE 2 DELTA STATE 6 

TAMPA UNIVERSITY 6 DELTA STATE 13 

Then the long jaunt to Tampa. Under the capable direction 
of fie Id genera I Gip Garner, the Statesmen took the Tampa Tro- 
jans into camp with a 13-6 victory and the end of another sea- 
son. And what an end! The Trojans were picked to snuff the 
Delta fire by at least two touchdowns. 

And so it is. A record of six wins and three losses. After a 
good start, the attack seemed to sag at mid-season, but under 
the ever watchful eyes of Coaches Gene Chadwick and Horace 
McCool, the fuse was lit in the Livingston game that flared our 
boys and was the downfall of four straight Delta opponents.
