All the activities of man are divided into two large divisions — 
work and play. This fact is apparent in our school life, for we 
may classify all that we do either as curricula or extra-curricula. 
We feel that one division supplements the other and that the 
well-rounded college life must include active participation in 
each. With this in mind, we have divided our annual into two 
distinct sections — curricular and extra curricular. 

The theme of the 1943 LION is "Holding higher the torch of 
learning," and its purpose is to stress the importance of higher 
education in war-time. Higher education means the thorough 
application of our time, skill, and energy in the classroom, 
coupled with diversion in the various clubs and student organi- 
zations. By placing proper emphasis on each, we hope to be 
able to create a clear picture of the college year that will be of 
value to you in the years to come.

We, the members of the annual staff, as a visible evidence of our 
appreciation of one who has furnished us with inspiration, made us 
conscious of the highest values, and given us nobler aims, dedicate this 
edition of the LION to Miss Loris Shipman. 

Because we have had the privilege of knowing her and being influenced 
by her great life, we are proud to say with Tennyson that "We are a part 
of all that we have met."

I want to congratulate the Annual Staff on the selection of the Theme "Educa- 
tion" for this Annual. It is one indication that the students of this institution are 
thinking about the essential things of life. 

As we come to the close of this session I want to thank the members of the 
student body for their fine cooperation and for the splendid attitude maintained 
throughout this year. We have labored this session under the most trying 
conditions ever to face a student body but you have pursued your task 
each day with a determination to accomplish that which you set out to do at 
the beginning of this year. 

As I write this the Reserves of our student body are leaving to be inducted 
into the Armed Forces of the United States. I know that they will go forth 
with the same determination to make good in the Army as they have in this 
school. There are other members of the student body who will never have the 
opportunity to be inducted into the Armed Forces of their country but each, 
I am sure, will do his best in Civilian Life to bring victory for the American 
Cause. Education has been the vital force that has made America what it is 
today. Our forefathers handed down to us the rights and opportunities that 
we enjoy and I have every assurance that the students of the East Mississippi 
Junior College will make whatever sacrifices necessary to protect these 
rights and liberties for future generations.

pay our deepest respect to the memory of:

Since the beginning of the school year, each 
class in the East Mississippi Junior College has 
been called upon to give many of its boys for 
service in the Armed Forces. These boys have 
dutifully given up their school careers and gone 
to answer their country's call for help. It is here 
that we remember them and the noble cause 
which they serve.

The Junior Class, small in number but strong in 
spirit and comradeship, has gained immeasurable 
advantages in its first year in this institution. They are 
welcome additions, and bid fare, through the con- 
tinuation of traits, of merit, to add even more honor 
and fame to the name of the school which has given 
them so much.

During this time of world crisis, the International Relations 
Club has taken on a new and vital meaning for its members. Its 
purpose — to fix the attention of students on the underlying 
principles of world conditions — has been carried out during the 
year by meetings held twice a month at which members join 
in round-table discussions of latest world developments. 

The annual banquet, carrying out a Washington's Birthday 
theme, was one of the most outstanding activities of the Club 
this year. 

The greatest work of the Club has been the selling of war 
stamps and bonds.

Throughout the year Le Petit Theatre, sponsored by Miss 
Loris Shipman, has been active in the successful production of 
a one-act play once a month. Not only does the Club endeavor 
to develop whatever dramatic talents — whether as directors, 
stage managers, electricians, or actors — the membership may 
have, but it also helps the student body as a whole, before 
which all performances are given, to become more appreciative 
of the qualities of good drama. 

The climax of the year's activities was a one-act folk comedy, 
Cottie Mourns.

cJhe Sock and iousRtn Society 



The Sock and Buskin Society is one of the two dramatic 
clubs in school. The plays which it has given in chapel and at 
the regular bi-monthly meetings have displayed very good 
talent. The society has endeavored to give experience in acting, 
directing, and stage management. This has been one of the 
most active clubs in school and has proved to be a real enjoy- 
ment for all who have taken part.

To increase the student's appreciation of the language, 
civilization, and culture of France has been the purpose of Le 
Cercle Francais. Through bi-monthly meetings the members 
have given programs contributing to a better understanding of 
the French people and a more extensive knowledge of their 
accomplishments. 

In all the activities of Le Cercle Francais the members have 
constantly sought to make effective and enjoyable use of their 
knowledge of the French language.

This club, organized to carry on scientific research in the 
field of chemistry, functions to supplement the required labora- 
tory work of advanced students. It provides an opportunity for 
its members who are intensely interested in this school subject — 
which steadily grows more important — to improve their manipu- 
lative skill, perform experiments which are not prescribed by 
the regular laboratory manual, and become better informed on 
modern scientific developments. 

The Scientific Research Club meets bi-monthly with Miss 
Lottie Cooper as the sponsor.

The Baptist Training Union resumed its activities at the begin- 
ning of the school session with definite objectives. One purpose 
was to develop the quality of church leadership among the 
students in order that they might be fitted to lead in church 
organizations. Through the study of Christ and his teachings, 
members of the B.T.U. have striven to exemplify Christ in their 
daily activities and measure up to His standards of life. 

The B.T.U. is one of the factors on the college campus that 
has contributed directly to a spiritual influence.

The Home Economics Club was organized with the aim of 
giving supplementary nutritional education. "Nutrition for De- 
fense" was accepted as the theme of the club. Occasional pro- 
grams were given to the public to help emphasize the impor- 
tance of well-planned meals in the building of strong bodies. 

Attention was also given to clothing. Members of the club 
learned that being well-dressed is being appropriately dressed. 

From time to time throughout the year, the members have put 
into practice things that will enter into the making of the better 
homes of tomorrow.

Under the direction of Miss Mary Leila Gardner, 
and with Hubert Tucker as accompanist, the Glee 
Club has been one of the most active, entertaining, 
and beneficial student organizations. 

During the year the Club has given programs in 
Chapel, in Vesper services, and has taken a prom- 
inent part in various other programs, striving always 
to develop not only within its members a musical 
appreciation, but within the student body as well. 

The Club made several tours during the latter part 
of the year, singing at various high schools in the 
country.

Although we cannot claim a wholly victorious season from the standpoint 
of scores, we can claim victory won by the spirit of the cooperation and good 
sportsmanship our boys have displayed. We are proud of them. They have 
won recognition as players who have fought hard; ones with ability to lose 
without becoming discouraged and ability to win with an humble spirit. 

Much credit for the fine spirit of the players goes to coach Childres who has 
given his best of time and effort to the players.
