I have known a word more gentle 

Than the breath of summer air; 
In a listening heart it nestled, 

And it lived forever there; 
Not the beating of its prison 

Stirr'd it ever, night or day; 
Only with the heart's last throbbing 

Could it fade away. 

— Adelaide Anne Procter 

In choosing words as our theme for our 1947-48 LION, we 
preserve for you in print and picture a record of your friends, ac- 
tivities, and experiences on the campus of the East Mississippi 
Junior College. 

It is said that each person must ultimately live by his own 
words. May the happiness, romance, and lasting memories of this 
school year be expressed and recalled by the ten most beautiful 
words in the English language as compiled by Wilfred J. Funk: 

Dawn 

Hush 

Lullaby 

Murmuring 

Tranquil 

Mist 

Luminous 

Chimes 

Golden 

Melody 

— The Editor 




DEDICATION 

As a visible evidence of our recognition and appreciation of 
him who, through his tolerance, wisdom, unfailing energy, and 
dignity of manner, has made us conscious of the highest ideals 
and has given us noblest aims, we, the members of the annual 
staff of the East Mississippi Junior College, respectfully and sin- 
cerely dedicate this, the 1948 volume of THE LION, to our 
staunch friend and proficient instructor . . _ .

PRESIDENT'S 



MESSAGE 



There has never been in the history of 
our country so great an opportunity for the 
college and university students of our land. 
When and where would you find as many college 
students on campuses who have had the experi- 
ences as you have had? You have seen peoples 
living under different types of government 
with all types of leadership. You have seen 
nations rise and fall. 



The responsibility in the leadership of 
this government and this country will b e yours 
by I960. We know what you can do under stress 
of war. . . . now demonstrate to the world what 
you can do in peace. 

To those responsible for this yearbook, we 
express our thanks for the presentation of college 
life. May each one of you, led by the Master 
Teacher, find happiness and success'. 

Sincerely, 

Cruce Stark

BOYS' BASKETBALL 



This has been a great year in basketball for the E. M. J. C. boys. With the excellent 
coaching of Coach Pressley, the team won ten games out of sixteen and played four 
very good tournament games before being defeated by four points by Moorhead. 

Placed on the All-State team was Pap Pressley. Boyd Hill was on All-State second 
team, and Junior Smith was on the Honorable Mention list. 

We hope E. M. J. C. will be represented as well next year as it was this season.

GIRLS' BASKETBALL 



Manager, Veda Jones, Virginia Rutledge, Kathrine Clark, Hazel Eaves, Margaret 
Cain, Kate Caldwell, Coach Bill Pressley Jean Rosenbaum, Eula Mae Mitchell, Dorothy 
Hamilton, Janiece Montgomery, Janelle Parker, Juanita Riddle 

An unforgettable basketball season has passed. E. M. J. C. is very proud of the 
little girls who fought so courageously and won nine out of fifteen games played this 
year. The team played four games in the tournament but was eliminated by a two point 
margin by Hinds. 

Juanita Riddle as forward and Janelle Parker as guard were placed on the All- 
State team. On the Honorable Mention list were Jean Rosenbaum and Janiece Parker 
Montgomery.
