William Wilson 3Ftnl*u,ffiEl.,l.A. 

President of the Southern Railway Lines. 

As a slight memorial of our lasting appreciation of his 
noble efforts toward the agricultural and economical de- 
velopment of the South, as a testimony of the loyalty he- 
has ever commanded from every other native son of Mis- 
sissippi, and as an unworthy token of our regard for his 
masterly intellect, his unselfish devotion to his Southland, 
and his indomitable spirit in her behalf, this the ninth 
volume of "THE REVEILLE" is dedicated.

William Wilson Finley, president of the Southern Railway lines, was born at Pass 
Christian, Miss., September 2, 1853. He served from vice-president's stenographer to assistant 
general freight agent of the New Orleans, Jackson & Great Northern and Chicago, St. Louis 
& New Orleans railways from I8?:> to 1883. For two years thereafter he was assistant general 
freight agent of the Texas & Pacific Railway, serving them one year in the same capacity 
during the receivership of that road. After two years as general freight agent of the rehabili- 
tated line he went to the "Fan Handle Route" for a year in a similar office. 

He was then made chairman of the Trans-Missouri Traffic Association, which office he 
held until 189-2. For three years succeeding he was general traffic manager of the G. N. & 
Montana Central Railroad, leaving to become commissioner of the Southern States Passenger 
Association. He was chosen third vice-president of the Southern Railway October 1, 189,5, 
became second vice-president a year later, holding the office for ten years. 

In December, 1906, be was chosen president, succeeding the late Samuel B. Spencer. 
Mr. Finley was president also of the Mobile \ Ohio Railroad, Southern Railway m Mississippi, 
Alabama Great Southern Railroad, Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific Railway, Georgia 
Southern & Florida Railway and Northern Alabama Railway. 

During his incumbency Mr. Finley paid much attention to the agricultural and economi- 
cal development of the South. He was one of the foremost promoters of industrial develop- 
ment of his native and surrounding States; in this field be was an influential supporter 
of the Mississippi Agricultural & Mechanical College, since he realized as have few other 
men of his position the gigantic force for the uplift of the masses that this college has and 
continues to exert. So firmly satisfied of the superior merits of this college was President 
Finley, that his road now offers two scholarships to students attending this institution. And 
in 1912 he started the foundation for the Finley Loan Fund, which he suggested should be 
used to aid poor boys in defraying their expenses while in college. Too, he was a versatile 
writer and speaker on problems relating to the material advancement of the country traversed 
by the lines of which he was head. 

On March 3, L910, the degree of 1.1.. I), was conferred upon Mr. Finley by Tulane Uni- 
versity, and on June 2, 1910, the same degree was conferred upon him by the State University 
of Kentucky. He was vice-president and chairman of the executive committee of the Ameri- 
can Highway Association, which is the clearing house for the good roads movement in the 
United States. He was one of the founders of the organization and through it aided the 
road movement throughout the South. 

On November 25, 1913, in the very prime of life, he died from a sudden stroke of apo- 
plexy, thus ending the active career of one of the leading figures in movements for the devel- 
opment of the South and one of Mississippi's most illustrious sons.

"The proper slady of mankind is man, 

The muni perplexing tine is woman." 

Henry hails from the piny regions of Mis- 
sissippi, where, according to his statement, 
the most charming lassies in this broad land 
dwell. He has had numerous love affairs, but 
the one that upset him most was when he 
was jilted by an old maid. At this late day 
he has come to realize that his heart was 
really not broken, but only slightly fractured 
and the scar has now disappeared. He says 
that he will never fall in love with another 
old maid as long as there are lassies at the 
I. 1. & C. 

We can all see him in the near future as 
a dignified professor who will awaken Lin- 
coln County to its great future possibilities 
in agriculture. We wish him success in all 
of his undertakings.

'Yon beat your pate and fancy wit will come, 
Knock as you please, there's nobody at home" 

"Si" came to us last year after having re- 
ceived his A. B. degree from the University 
of Mississippi. By diligence and persever- 
ance he has attained the goal. Having a love 
for rural life he lias been endeavoring to 
master the science of agriculture. "Si" is a 
very versatile young man, as he is an ac- 
complished actor, tennis player, and an ex- 
traordinary wit, which, I might say, is of 
the "sturb cone" variety. This he inflicts 
upon those of his friends who like him most. 
In contrast to most of the class, lie is a con- 
firmed woman-hater. His ventures among 
the fair sex have been limited while here, 
and we do not know the reason why, but sus- 
pect that he is a man with a "past." Another 
art lie is proficient in is the driving of a 
horse with ore hand, and on occasion will 
demonstrate his prowess in this line. 

"Si," we all join in wishing you the great- 
est of success and hope to see you one of 
these days published as a great breeder of 
live stock. Guards; Marshall-Benton County Club;

"He that respects himself is safe from

He wears a coal that none can pierce." 

This has been true of Alford through his 
entire college life. He lias done much to raise 
the dignity of himself, and his class as well. 
His attire has attracted the eye of many of 
the fairer sex; but his eoai lias turned all of 
Cupid's darts. He lias shown a great (leal 
of effort in getting an education, which 
makes us believe that he will succeed at any- 
thing he tries. He has been a good student, 
and has made many friends while here. We 
understand lliat he is going to study law 
after he graduates.

"The end is to hare two made one 
In will and affection." 

"Jim" is a good-natured and intelligent 
fellow. lie has always been a hard worker, 
especially in English, and his love for this 
subject is evidenced by the many weary 
years he devoted to the mastery of his native 
tongue. He has been with us for the past 
four years and he lias always brought up his 
end of the work. He never fails to perform 
his chemical "lab," for he usually works alone. 

During the first three years he was with 
us "Jim's" room was the hanging-out place 
of all the loafers of the class, especially 
when they wanted a smoke. His love affairs 
were many during this linn, and he was ever 
ready to discuss them, but one day tins past 

summer all this came to an abrupl end, for 

he was joined in matrimony to a fair maiden 
whom we all know verj well, II was with 
much regrcl thai we losl "Jim" from our 
"Bachelor Club," but, of course, we ciuld 
not object when we though! of the prize he 
was winning.

"He was a man — take him for all in all; 
We shall not look iti><in his like again," 

May — the stalwart fellow he is -brought 
liis travels to an end when in 1900 lie found 
himself in this "Dungeon of Despair," and 
started on a new trail. He did not know 
where it would lead, but after a hard jour- 
ney of five long years he has at last reached 
the much-sought-for goal. He is a man to be 
depended upon, and is one who never over- 
looks the little things, but such is natural 
with him, being first cousin to "Mutt." He 
is a lad who loves to roam; since coming here 
his Summers have been spent way up North 
and in the far West; "seems as if an un- 
known voice" calls him. "Here's a wish to 
you, 'Shorty,' hoping that you find the voice 
and not the echo."

"Frivolity and pleasure are things of today; 
True character the lesl that fadeth not away" 

"Red" came to us four years ago as a 
Freshman. Ir is not definitely known how he 
came to be here, but, just the same, he's 
here and made most of his time. The first 
day he landed on our campus he gave us the 
impression of a manly character and a jolly, 
good-natured fellow; we have not been dis- 
appointed in him — an ideal scholar. It has 
been his honor to carry away the "Laurels" 
for the highest mark in his section during 
his entire college career. No one who has 
met him can say that he •has not enjoyed his 
congenial smiles and "Sage-like" expressions. 
Willie's great desire is to become active in 
the social evolution of Mississippi, believing 
this to be the potent factor of today. We all 
join in wishing him unlimited success.

"Stiver to prosper than prosperity could litter 
assured us." 

"Sunshine" first visited A. & M. during 
the summer of 1908. After once getting his 
feet planted on Mississippi soil he was too 
healthy a specimen to be returned to his 
home in the Old Dominion State. For two 
years he strode to and from school in Stark- 
ville with the campus children. While not a 
"ladies' man," he has a weakness for higa 
school girls. It was not long after entering 
college that he was given the name of "Sun- 
shine," which is a very appropriate title. 1 Ic 
is big all over and has ample foundation to 
uphold his body. lie likes to go, and enjoys 
a good time if anybody does. He gives fair 
play and always impresses one and all with 
his heartv. wholesoul good nature. Whether 
to the Philippines, Panama, or what foreign 
part; whether to batch it, but more likely 
not, we wisli him our happiest good wishes.

Fritz hails from the sunny State of Ten- 
nessee. He docs not fancy active social life 
and was never known as a follower after the 
fairer sex, but loves to dream of his future 
conquests along this line Fred's star per- 
formance comes off at the drawing board, 
portraying these imaginary queens. His 
broad smile is his greatest asset, and is ever 
beaming on friend and foe. His jovial and 
open-hearted manner lias won him mam 
friends during his sojourn here. His one se- 
erel is his middle name, which lie absolutely 
refuses to reveal, even to his best friends.

"His character, of which we can boast, 
Makes his remembrance dear." 

"Mary" is one of our most profound be- 
lievers and perfect connoisseurs in feminine 
pulchritude. The frou frou of silk dresses 
never fails to set off his heart into a palpi- 
tation, and then later becomes the dope of 
his fantastical and mystical dreams. How- 
ever, when he is called a "model sport," it is 
not all said. Indeed "Mary" is one of our 
most efficient students in both his academic 
and military work, and is an ardent sup- 
porter of the Y. M. C. A. The fact that he 
was one of the three students selected from 
the student body to teach at night, warrants 
this assertion. Perhaps no other student has 
made a better "hit" with both faculty and 
students than he; and we all regard him as 
one of our number who will reaj) a glorious 
success, and in time become one of the glow- 
ing stars in the State of which he is to re- 
main a part.

"Active doer, noble liver. 
Strong to labor, sure to conquer?' 

The subject of this sketch originated in 
the "famous" city of Starkville. "Harry," as 
he is familiarly known, is a person of great 
distinction, being the only gray-haired man 
of our number; also, he is the "Bell(e)" of 
the class. However he is more prominent in 
another respect, being one of the best stu- 
dents of the class. He does not make it a 
point to ask many questions, but is always 
there with the "goods." "Harry" has never 
played an important part in society, but he 
likes the girls, and has caused much jealousy 
among many of the fair maidens of Stark- 
ville. He is especially fond of I. I. & C. 
girls, particularly a certain Corinth maid. 
We predict for our gray-haired friend a 
brilliant future in whatever he may under- 
take, and feel sure that one day Starkville 
will be proud of him.

• He doeth all things well." 

Best is an ex-1913 man, is of excellent 
habits, quiet, sociable and always in a good 
humor. His favorite pastime is going to 
Columbus and working in the electrical lab., 
where he is quite an authority on electrical 
machinery. Best has made quite a reputa- 
tion on the class football team and has made 
the team for the last four years. Me has 
successfully completed his regular four-year 
course on time. He is also excellent in Ihe 
game of hearts, and is considered by many 
to be quite a ladies' man. Sometimes he 
grows quite despondent when he realizes that 
only one of his fair admirers can ever hope 
to secure her heart's desire. Best has made 
a good all-round man since he has been here, 
and bis comrades and classmates feel sure 
that whatever vocation he chooses to follow 
as his lifework he will make a great success.

"Be hold, but mil too bold." 

"Flav" lias been with us for four long 
years, and in time lie has done some 
good work. He often amuses himself by 
singing, as lie calls it, but from what the 
boys say the noise that he makes does not 
very much resemble singing. He is a great 
ladies' man from a distance — or so we can 
gather from bis conversation when he is 
feeling real sentimental. "Flav" is a big 
"mooch" for smoking tobacco never being 
known to "loosen up." 

The class expects great things of "Flav" 
and hopes to hear of him putting Smithville 
on the map some of these days by some start- 
ling work along agricultural lines.

place in our hearts and in our classes. He is 
clever and diligent and stands well at the 
top of his classes. Although he does not 
make a practice of heart-breaking, we no- 
tice that he is usually able to hold up his end 
in anything that he undertakes, and, judg- 
ing from the volume of his correspondence 
from down about Hattiesburg, Allen will 
not long have to endure the loneliness of

"Mail we neve)' murmur without a cause, 
And never have cause to murmur.'' 

Langston is always a quiet fellow in the 
section room, but elsewhere he is always there 
for the good time. By his pleasing ways he 
has won many friends during his three years 
of college life in Company A. "To worry" 
he does not know how; he takes things as 
they come and always gets by with ease. This 
Newton County product stands well both in 
his academic and military duties. He did 
not carry on much heart-smashing in' Stark- 
ville society, but we understand he has his 
future affairs arranged with a certain fair 
damsel in the vicinity of Newton. We hope 
some day he may be one of the greatest of 
our surgeons. Here's to you, "Ole Boy,"

"// there's another world, he tires in bliss; 
If there is none, he made most of this." 

Walter, or "Doc," as he is best known to 
us, is the product of our summer resort. To 
this we attribute his desire for a good time. 
He has been a star of the greatest magni- 
tude in everything that lie has undertaken, 
and especially lias he made a reputation as 
a military genius. (?) 

Doe is a man of varied tastes and ability. 
He is a good athlete, as well as a great ad- 
mirer of the fair sex. However, the girl 
has not as yet "arrived" upon the scene. Bol- 
ton's good nature and loyalty to his friends 
have made him one of the niosl popular men 
in our class. His ambition is to he a great 
engineer, and it is our most sincere hope 
that he may succeed.

"Though you have old age, make yourself a 
young man." 

"Chicken" Bozeman, better known as Ted, 
hails from Prentiss, Miss. This youngster 
appeared in our Sophomore year. He had 
tried liis hand at several other colleges out 
was never satisfied until he found himself 
drilling in the rear ranks of one of our mili- 
tary companies. Ted is particularly fond of 
this place, and would no! go home during 
the Christmas holidays, hut stayed here to 
preserve military discipline. One night dur- 
ing tin' holidays he had his squad out ma- 
neuvering among the goats. Someone came 
upon them, and they tell up here that Ted 
ran, hut we don't believe a word id' it, though 
he did have a broken finger the next morn- 
ing. Though he was far hack in the sticks 
when we found him we have tamed him to a 
certain degree, and we are lucky in finding 
such a man. We hope some day to see him 
a prosperous lawyer.

"Learned is he that studieth, 
Bui o'ertaxeth not Jus endurance." 

"Dopey," a standard antitoxin for pessi- 
mism, prides himself on being a soldier of 
the front rank on the military field. During 
his three years here he has had the honor of 
being an officer only once, due to the fact 
that he is inclined to turn a deaf ear to the 
early morning bugles, and consequently his 
official career was cut short. The only vul- 
nerable point in the career of our friend 
"Dopey" lies in his tendency to read too 
much at night. He props his feet upon a 
table so that his blood will flow to his head, 
and sits there until the lights go out. Dopey 
came here in the year 1911 and entered Soph- 
omore, and has been attending duties at this 
institution ever since. We feel sure that this 
institution will not regret having enrolled 
him as a student, but will be proud of the 
fact that it has fitted another strong shoul- 
der to be placed against the wheel of com-

joined us at the beginning of our Sophomore 
year and since that time has proven himself 
an excellent student. He is a great lover of

duties. Though he has never attained bis 
military desire (Second Lieutenant) at col- 
lege, he intends to continue his military ca- 
reer in another environment in the near fu-

laurels. We know "Bob" will make a suc-

"Sweet are the uses of adversity 

Which, like Military, ugly and venomous, 

Yet wears <t precious jewel in its head." 

"Smiley" lias many characteristics not 
possessed by others. He takes great delight 
in giving an "extra" military course to those 
who prepare themselves to take "specials" 
in that department. At times he is as calm 
as an inland lake when a storm is raging, 
and again he is ruffled by zephyrs that 
blow from the northeast. He is a profes- 
sional courtier, but Popularity has been will- 
fully neglected because of rivalry between 
her and certain members of a "fairer sex." 
He not only spends much of his time in the 
performance of his duties as an officer and 
in holding a position in the front rank of 
his class in academic work, but somehow he 
finds time to write letters that require extra

"Away, to lur a woman bring 

Street water from affections' spring." 

The subject of this sketch hails from Mon- 
roe County. Of his love affairs and past 
history we know very little and will be 
forced to look to tradition for such infor- 
mation. But we judge that he once had a 
sw r eetheart in the days when the hoop-skirt 
was in the ascendency and we doubt not 
that he will yet play an important part in 
these days of the "slit skirt." 

"Prof," as the boys call him, came to 
us in mil' Sophomore yen-, and although 
seriously handicapped with Freshman work, 
has made considerable progress which shows 
bis willingness and capacity for work, two 
qualities necessary for success.

Be the saddest moments of your future." 

"Sunny" is a product of Union County, 
and resides in the city of Myrtle. He joined 
our class in the year of 1910, and has been 
a loyal member since. Charlie wears an 
everlasting smile, and on only one occasion 
did it fade, "No Colonel! No Sir, I wasn't 
asleep; that quilt just happened to he on 
my trunk. No Sir, Honest, I Wasn't." 
Sunny is well known by the fair of Stark- 
ville, though we can't say that he specialized 
on any one of the above named city. It 
may he interesting to state that he spends 
some of his time addressing letters to Co- 
lumbus. In academic and military work he 
spends most of his leisure time, never fail- 
ing to utilize every moment, altho at times 
he has to resort to the dreams of the future 
better still "Futuress." May his life be as 
bright as his nickname implies, and when 
we next see him we hope to find success in- 
terwoven into his name.

better than any speech." 

"Gus" hails from the metropolis city, which 
has furnished so many good men to the 
A. & M. College. He has been here since 
1910 and we find him up to the standard 
in everything. His genial smile has won 
for him many friends while here. 

"Gus" is not a ladies' man, yet he is not 
blind to the charms of the fair sex. This 
was shown by a little episode which happened 
during bis Junior year, which caused him 
a heartache or two. Dairying is his special 
work, and we think he is proficient enough 
to take charge of some dairy establishment 
in the Philippine Islands. We feel sure 
that he will succeed in his chosen profession 
for he is very fond of animals, especially 
goats and horses. May he live long to en- 
joy the success that is sure to come to one 
with as much ability as he.

"He lias a heart with room fur every joy." 

Roland or "Skinny" drifted into our midsl 
as a modest Freshman, and for the past four 
years has endeavored to get everything 
possible out of college life, or to be more 
exact, to get everything that is not ob- 
tained in the class room and books. He has 
taken part in everything from leading 
prayer meeting to "side show" dancing; how- 
ever, we feel sure that his motto has been 
"Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow 
you may die." As a man of military ability 
"Skinny" rivals Napoleon, and his famous 
"Pole cats" will forever live in the annals 
of A. fie M. history. Too, Roland has won 
much fame as a social leader, and as an 
admirer of the fair sex, it is only necessary 
that his time is equally divided between eat- 
ing, sleeping, upholding prohibition, and 
Starkville society. Roland, old boy, may 
Dame Fortune ever smile upon you, but never 
her daughter miss-fortune.

"There are some silent people 'who are more 
interesting than the best talkers." 
This quiet and exceedingly modest young 
fellow came to A. & M. from the cosmopoli- 
tan little city of Sessums, Miss., in Fhe Fall 
of 1910. Lie is known as "Bill" among his 
classmates, and his easy going and affable 
manner has won him many friends. Efficiency 
and thoroughness are predominant char- 
acteristics of his class room work. Although 
lie has never been an enthusiast of athletics 
or society yet he believes in them when em- 
ployed in moderation. That treacherous little 
fellow, Cupid, has never been able to claim 
him as inn- of his victims; however, we are 
informed that he came very near falling 
from grace on one occasion, the mention of 
which in his presence accentuates the nat- 
urally ms\ hue of his plump cheeks. "Bill" 

procures his degree in "E.E." this year, and 
it is his ambition to employ his E.E. skill in 
the construction and operation of the Ses- 
sums Railroad, Light and Power Company. 
We feel quite confident that this ambition 
will be realized in the years to come. "Bill" 
is well equipped to enter the battle of life, 
and we feel certain thai he will emerge 
from it the winner of main victories.

"Women's looks his only books 
.lint follies all thiii taught him." 

". lawn's" career at this institution began 
when "man's mind runneth not to the con- 
trary." After much toil he graduated from 
the Engineering Department in 1912, but the 
following September he entered the Agri- 
cultural Department. After being in class 
with him for two years we can see that he 
is well adapted for this line of work. 
"Jawn's" -mind wanders at times, or is it 
his heart:- Although he has never shown 
violent symptoms all that is necessary is the 
time, the place, and the girl. On one bright 
day in November he packed his grip and 
combed his little mustache and sallied forth 
to conquer the "Mills" of .Mississippi. Al- 
though he has never told us of his con- 
quests, vet he has said nothing of defeat. 
When he has nothing else to do he studies 
agriculture, and in the future we expect to 
hear of great things accomplished by him 
at Areola.

"Pee Wee," the unsophisticated essence of 
pure "runti tidiness" that we all know him 
to be, hails from our sister city Sessums. 
He is of noble character, honest and upright 
in all things, and having on the whole a 
rather studious nature: Through four years 
of strenuous toil he has never given up or 
said "I can't," but has always held his own 
and we all feel sure that the future has many 
good things in store for him. His main view 
in life is to have a large farm "all his own," 
and find the one needed to help him run it. 
"Pee Wee" has many friends at the college 
and in Starkville. May he live up to the 
standard he has set, and ever he prosperous, 
is the sincere wish of his classmates.

"And I pray yon lei none of your people stir 

me ; 
I hare an exposition of sleep come upon me." 

Jim has had military aspiration, and it 
has been rumored that he came once near 
being Lieutenant-Colonel, that is he applied 
for the job, but alas! the wheel of fortune 
turns in more than one direction. However, 
he has outgrown this tendency and shows a 
marked aversion to all things military; es- 
pecially reveille and inspections. There are 
few students in the class who are more 
hospitable or generous and very few who can 
excel him in commercial and political 
ability, but his chief and most marked char- 
acteristic is his ability to create fiction rela- 
tive to his adventures in the far West. 
Jim has a very distinguished bearing, and 
when in "Citz" is frequently taken, by visit- 
ors on the campus, for one of the professors. 
His work in the class room and laboratory is 
a source of wonder to Prof. Reid and his 
classmates. We think that Jim aspires to 
the commercial end of his chosen profession, 
and no doubt he has chosen wisely, for his 
greatest capability seems to lie along this 
line, and the valuable training he has pre- 
viously received ought to enable him to 
monopolize and dominate the electrical in- 
dustry in a very few years after graduation.

implies, and is especially noted for punctu- 
ality and accuracy in his work. Though he 
came to us in our Sophomore year, yet lie 
soon climbed to an equal standing with the 
very best in his class. During his college 
life he has given his entire time to getting 
an education, and success has been his re- 
ward. His deportment as a student has been 
perfect, he being one of the extremely few 
who never received a single demerit of rep- 
rimand, nor never failed on a single sub- 
ject throughout his college career. "Jodie" 
has made considerable progress in the poetic 
field, and lias written sonic striking poems 
on love, and the maidens fair. Morally, 
he believes in the clean, square thing and 
his belief is shown in his daily conduct. He 
has a kind disposition but a stern determina- 
tion for success which allows no time for 
folly. "Jodie," success to you.

ability to lead his class. He is of a fun- 
loving disposition and is ever ready for a 
joke, at bis or someone else's expense. His 
chief characteristic is reading. He will read a 
"Diamond Dick" or Shakespeare with equal 
enjoyment. He can sit around 30111- room 
with as much unconcern as a babe, but, alas!

for himself a splendid record on the athletic 
field — having played Varsity baseball and 
football. His favorite "Hobby" is sing- 
ing in the Glee Club (?), and his favorite 
pastime is "skinning cats" on the horizontal 
bar and catching on his nose. Ladies' man? 
— well, I should say yes. He says he is 
going to get married if he can invent some 
way by which to choose a wife from his 
long list of maiden admirers. He expects 
to become a banker, and we wish for him 
a successful and happy career.

excelling in baseball, football and basket

team is catcher where he has served in many 
a game. lie plays at quarter on the class 
football team, and it is a wonder how such 
a small man can make such gains. But his 
greatest achievement is his walking; for after 
four years' practice, morning and night, he 
has become an expert. Ask Prof. Gay what 
Critz can remember. He will answer, "He 
has never remembered anything since his

remembered as the discoverer of the "Kinder- 
garten Society" of Starkville. Tom has 
many rivals at the "house on the hill," and 
though he keeps quiet about his social ac-

"This seeming broiv of justice, did lie win 
The hearts of ell that he did angle for." 

"Hen W" is popular with his classmates, 
and always greets them with a never-tiring 
smile. He came here four years ago from 
the jungles of Kemper County. He is a 
very enthusiastic and practical man. His fa- 
vorite study is "henology" and his pastime 
military. He is never known to miss drill 
nor docs he have to he aroused from his 
bed by the Colonel. He is a very studious 
man — sometimes. He never fails to en- 
lighten his classmates on the subject of 
matrimony. We feel confident that when 
"Hen W" returns to his farm in Kemper 
County he will do great work in enlightening 
the farmers of that section in the new ag-

"The hearts of old (/are hands, 
lint the new heraldry is hands and hearts." 

"Bob," .is he is generally known to his 
classmates, is a very energetic student. We 
never see him when he does not have a 
smile on his face, something new to tell 
us and in a hurry. He is the only one of 
the Pike Seven to survive the baffles to be 
found in the "Piney's." His favorite study 
is "Math." His sympathy has always been 
with the military department, but few knew 
it. He is well known to the Sunday school 
and churches. It is a question whether or 
not he goes there for his spiritual welfare. 
His support for athletics has been such that 
tin- neighboring towns call the summer base- 
ball team the "Dickey's." Since his entrance 
as a student he has been connected with 
Veterinary Department, and his love for ani- 
mal life and his devotion to his work along 
these lines guarantee his success in life.

"I teas not bom for courts or state affairs, 
I pay my debts, believe, and say my prayers." 

Henry is a product of Holmes County. He 
has been very studious ever since his first 
day in college, anil his work has been well 
done. Henry has not attained very high 
military honors at college, but he expects to 
organize a company of National Guardsmen 
in the near future and will be Captain. 
His summers have been spent among the 
wilds of his native county, trying to induce 
the uninitiated to purchase one of his fa- 
mous irons. He has never been known to 
loaf while on duty, and is a strict business 
man. The girls never shared in any of his 
valuable time. He has quite a number of 
friends among the student body. He has 
many plans and ideas for the future which 
the class wishes may prove valuable to him 
some day.

''Success comes in cans; failure iu can'ts." 

"Fuzzy," otherwise known as "Polly," be- 
cause of his "Have a heart" expression, came 
to us from the dense wilds of Razorback 
State. Although for three years his parents 
resided in Chicago they finally gave up hopes 
of Clint ever overcoming the environment 
of his former haunts and so in his Senior 
year they have again taken up their abode 
in the famous "slow train" state. Above 
we have given the origin of the name "Polly," 
but for unnamed reasons we will not ex- 
plain the origin of the "Fuzzy." 

Clint has a most genial disposition, easily 
making friends with those who come to 
know him best. He has that easy-going dis- 
position that few of us are fortunate enough 
to possess. His motto is to get it done, 
but be sure you don't hurt yourself at any 
one thing. One of his three great attain- 
ments is that he has completed his four- 
year course in three; the second is that he 
has won his "M" in track two years; and 
last but not least, has lived on "C" Com- 
pany hall two years and is still alive.

"Tom," during his Sophomore and Junior 
years, was very much interested in the 
"Steele" possibilties in one of the nearby 
towns. This year we do not see as many of 
those businesslike letters. "Tom" pretends 
not to eare, but we all can see by the 
pallor of his cheeks and the dullness of his 
eyes that he is pining away. Just look for 
yourself what havoc the failure in "Steele" 
has caused. 

"Tom" is the best kind of student, never 
speaking unless called upon, and thereby 
does not display his ignorance more than 
necessary. He is especially interested in the 
raising of stock and intends to have one 
of the best stock farms in Mississippi. The 
whole class hopes that,

His troubles as light as its foam."

thing, giving the best he had to all. We 
all pay homage to the domicile of this ex-

thing out of the ordinary. He is unusually 
quiet when alone; but when the rustle of 
silken skirts conies near, his eyes have an 
askance look in them. He has never cut such 
a wide swath in society; but, nevertheless, it 
is whispered around that there is one fair 
maiden in whom he is interested. He is also 
an enthusiastic supporter of all college

the education of young Mississippians. Let 
us all hope for him a successful future.

"He was very glib at parley,

"Daniel Webster" has not specialized as a 
ladies' man, having devoted the greater part 
of his time to his studies. We are led to 
believe, however, by the photograph which 
fills such a conspicuous position on his 
dresser, and also by his regular attendance 
at the postoffice that he has not entirely 
excluded this branch of study from his 
curriculum. He has always taken a great 
interest in the military department, and 
goes to all formations except when he fliinks 
the roll will not lu- called. While he has 
not always been such a "shark" for grades 
he generally "gets there." Since his first 
entrance here he has always been well up 
in his work. We trust that he will do as 
well in after life as he has done while a 
student of this institution.

"How beautiful a thing is Fidelity." 

Joseph Carroll, called for short, "Bub," has 
indeed been faithful. For three years he 
has remained unharmed by the soft glances 
and the bewitching smiles of the damsels 
of Starkville, a failure due, we think, to 
his having received from Columbus a "Good 
Fellowship" book with marked passages. 
"Bub" has also been very faithful to a 
resolution that he made since entering col- 
lege — a resolution never to stay up later than 
9:30 p. m. If by any chance he is enticed 
away and unwittingly leaves his watch, the 
moment he hears the tattoo bugle, he flees 
in alarm, determined not to dissipate. Never- 
theless, he is never behind in his studies 
nor in his extras. "Bub" has been a good 
student and beloved fellow the three years 
he has been with us, and we doubt not, that,

that being reported three months after his 
first entrance, by the Lieutenant Colonel, he 
was forced to inquire the name of said of- 
ficer, but this was an excusable oversight and, 
since then, such has been his interest in 
military, that he not only keeps up win) 
the Lieutenant Colonels, but even with the

has spent his time in earnest, purposeful 
endeavor to broaden and perfect himself in

charming reality. Our personal knowledge 
of "Shi" convinces us that he usually ac-

As a musician he has shown rare aptitude; 
his favorite selection is entitled, "Please Go 
Way and Let Ale Sleep." (It is rumored 
that he once sang this song to the Colonel.) 
One of his musical creations is Jones' Or-

the past, he is seriously considering the 
perusal of at least one book before June.

He is an ardent believer in the above quota-

although there is nothing that he hates much 
worse than study. King is a great admirer 
of the fair sex, and is ever ready to relate 
his conquests among them. "Jack's" easy- 
going manner has won him many friends. 
He has the honor of being one of the most 
conceited men in school, but if you have 
ever formed that opinion, you change it 
after you know him awhile. He is of a 
jolly disposition and can seldom be found 
in any mood other than a friendly one. 
He always sees the humorous side of things, 
no matter in what kind of a predicament 
he or the other fellow might lie. King will

ably follow some branch of that vocation.

of "Polecats." "Bill" is an ardent lover of 
military ('■) and discipline is his motto. As 
a student he ranks high, being always able 
to convince the "profs" of his knowledge, 
whether he knows anything or not. As a 
commercial retailer he ranks second to none, 
and many think that he is imbued with some 
of the qualities of the "children of Israel." 
"Bill" has taken agronomy as his special 
work, and in the years to come we hope to 
find him among the honored agronomists.

"Tell him of Jacob's ladder and he 
Would ask the number of steps." 

"Bill" began his career at the Institution 
in 1911 as a Sophomore. All along he has 
shown his ability to solve the problems that 
will confront him in his profession. It was 
in integral calculus that he won his fame as 
a mathematician. He has also won quite a 
little fame as a military man. During his 
first year he received the highest rank that 
could be given a Sophomore, and now has 
reached the distinguished promotion of First 
Lieutenant. "Bill" does not halt at being a 
mathematician and military genius, he is 
also somewhat of a ladies' man, but we will 
have to admit that it is a certain maiden in 
Moorhead who gets almost his entire atten- 
tion. We are more than confident of his 
success in the future, and will always be 
proud of him as a fellow-student.

"Rhine," though small of statue, is 
formidable enough in other respects. He 
came to us as a Freshman and has been a 
loyal member of the Class '14. ever since. 
"Rhine" drilled with us the first year, but 
when he returned as a Sophomore he de- 
serted the ranks and joined the band, owing 
to his great love for military or his laziness. 
Since then he has "tooted his own horn." 
He is best known to the student body as 
W. R. Lominick, Photographer, 18 Band

social affairs while in college.

McAmis, or "Red," as he is known to us, 
came to us in our Sophomore year, and from 
then until now, by perseverance and strict 
attention to duty has always maintained a 
high standing in his class. The common say- 
ing- that red hair is a sign of a high temper 
cannot lie applied to "Mc" for we have never 
seen him in an ugly mood. He is a friend to 
everyone and liked by all, both students and 
professors. He has become renowned for his 
ads for the picture show and his ability at 
lettering. By the twinkle in his eyes and the 
beaming smile on his face, you would think 
that he had been up to some mischief, but as 
a rule Mc is quiet, and very seldom up to 
any tricks. We feel sure that some day in 
the near future the town of Corinth will 
have occasion to be proud of him.

"Joe" began bis college career as a "Prep./' 
therefore he feels like a veteran among us. 
He has always been a hard worker and an 
honest student, his favorite study being ge-

academic work, as he has been an active 
worker in the Y. M. C. A., both as a member 
and as a teacher. 

"Dr." hails from Sunflower County, and he 
for one is proud of the fact, and he intends 
to return there and invest his talents in the 
upbuilding of her soil. He is a specialized 
ladies' man and boasts of the fact that he 
has not as yet met with any serious catastro- 
phe in dealing with the fair sex. He speaks 
often of the ideal woman on the ideal plan- 
tation. His favorite game is "wink," but 
when it comes to something more substantial 
he says to his county club, "To town for sup- 
per." We predict a great change in Joe's

"A merry heart doeth good like medicine." 

The subject of this sketch, popularly 
known among the boys as ""Buster," is a 
"cardiac pulverizer" from the word "go." It 
is his delight to indulge in the most amusing 
art of flirtation. Although his list of cor- 
respondents is long, it seems from external 
appearance that Cupid has inclined his heart 
toward a certain school girl in Alabama. 

As an athlete "Buster" has attained to con- 
siderable fame, having played a brilliant part 
in the class football games. His end runs 
were paralyzing to the opposing teams, and 
his line bucking above the average. His fa- 
vorite diversions are photography and dan- 

"Buster" is an excellent student and an 
all-round good fellow. He never worries. His 
favorite study is Entomology. 

"Buster's" great ambition is to get mar- 
ried and have a big farm on which he may 
display his knowledge of scientific agricul- 
ture. The best wishes of the class follow him 
in whatever course he may pursue. Here's to 
you, "Buster."

since that time few are his equal and he is

To wear his face without a grin." 

Connell, or "Me," as he is familiarly known 
to his classmates, joined us in our Freshman 
year, spending the first two years in the dor- 
mitory and the last two as a "town prep." 
During his college career he has been very 
fond of athletics, but, best of all, he believes 
that the mental faculties should be trained 
first, and he has conclusively proved this to 
his classmates by his wide knowledge of agri- 
cultural subjects. His chief desire is to learn 
all there is to know about "Bugs," and if his 
present efforts prevail we are sure that he 
will succeed ( ?). He has always enjoyed mil- 
itary, but for some unknown reason he has 
remained a private during his four years. So- 
ciety has never entered his mind, but we are 
sure he is in love, because his stationery bills 

are fierce. 

When June arrives we lose him, but his 
memory is with us forever.

undertakes. He has a decided talent for

who believes in "Tooting his own horn." 
"Lefty" is an ardent believer in exercise, and 
to this may be attributed his frequent visits

knew him believed that his heart was dormant 
when Cupid came around, but we now realize 
our mistake. In the abridged words of

"And he would argue, and argue, and argue." 

One September morn, three years ago, a 
green, thoroughly seared prep, made his first 
appearance upon our enlightening campus — 
and lo ! we had in our midst "Oscar Patter- 
son" of Pike County. Since that time, how- 
ever, a change has occurred — he is now from 
"MoComb." Despite this small defect, Pat- 
terson is a well-rounded man. He ranks high- 
est among those who labor for the spiritual 
uplift of the college; his class work is unex- 
celled; he lias made good in class athletics, 
in oratory he won the highest distinction 
within the gift ot the college; in him, too, it 
seems that Dan Cupid has at last met a 
worthy foe; "Pat" has not entirely ignored 
Cupid's darts, but the way he has regulated 
them, selecting a few and rejecting many, 
sends terror to the heart of the little Archer. 
"Steve'' is an energetic worker, a worthy but 
determined foe, and an optimist of the high- 
est order.

"Three-fifths of him genius, and two-fifths 
sheer fudge." 

This lad, with the sun-kissed hair, came to 
A. & M. nobody knows just when. His early 
life was spent fighting the mosquitoes of the 
Mississippi Delta. This did not ruin his dis- 
position, however, as it is not at all in keeping 
with his name (Red Pepper). His time has 
been well taken up with his studies, as he has 
finished the course in three years. He has 
found time for athletics, however, and has 
represented his Alma Mater on the track 
team for three years. His ambition is to se- 
cure a position where he will have a great 
deal of time to devote to his favorite sport — 
fishing. He is very fond of this pastime, as 
it requires very little exertion. We predict 
for him a bright future, as a man with such 
a sunny smile and genial disposition cannot 
help but succeed.

"Chic fhl the mould of a man's future is in 
liia own hands.'' 

"Vann" came to us as a fivshinan from 
the nearby village of Starkville. He is one 
of the youngest of the class, as well as one of 
the most efficient in classroom work. English 
is his favorite study and reading is his pas- 
time. "Sid" is a quiet fellow, but his ever 
good nature iias won him many friends. He 
cares little for society and the fair ones of 
Starkville, but often speaks of a little maiden 
of Water Valley. He expects to enter Cor- 
nell University next fall and some day get 
his Doctor's degree in Agronomy. "Sid" is 
well versed in agriculture and likes to talk of 
his future in the agricultural world. His 
greatest desire is to be Secretary of Agri- 
culture. That's right, "Old Boy," aim high, 
and may you always hit the mark.

Though one of the smallest men in our 
class, "Pete" is one of the best. He is quiet 
and reserved at most times, but is quick to 
see a joke or participate in an argument. 
Joining us in our Sophomore year, "Pete" 
immediately jumped to the front, and has re- 
mained there ever since. While he could not 
be correctly classed as a ladies' man, still we 
are informed that he can hold Pus own — even 
among- several hundred telephone girls. It 
is rumored also that there is a certain young 
lady at I. I. & C. who — well, you understand. 
In all "Pete" is a loyal friend, an admirable 
companion and a conscientious student. His 
chosen lifework is electrical engineering and 
we predict for him a most successful career 
in his future field of endeavor.

"Him yon will find in letters, 
And in laws mil unexpert." 

The subject of this sketch proudly claims 
Pike as the place of his nativity. It was as a 
freshman that "Pitt" joined the class of 
1914. Since then he has proven a true dis- 
ciple of Prof. Brunson. "C. C." has taken 
considerable interest in various phases of col- 
lege activity, but academic work always 
comes first with him. He is intensely inter- 
ested in educational work, and will probably 
devote his life to the laudable profession. He 
often speaks of some day teaching that rural 
school in the rural districts, where the mock- 
ing bird sings all the day long and where the 
flowers grow, bloom and fade away. He has 
the energy as well as the caliber for good 
work, consequently we would not be surprised 
to some day hear of his being in the ranks 
of the foremost educators of the State. So 
here's to you, "C. C," the wishes of all.

"Many men of genius must before a 
particular man of genius may appear." 

"Stumpy" claims to hail from the city of 
Meridian, but it is generally known that he 
comes from the suburban village of Vimville. 
We believe that it is due to a certain young 
maiden of that "town" that ".Stumpy" takes 
no more than a passing interest in the Stark- 
viile girls, though he seems to be a great 
admirer of them from a distance. The date 
of "Stumpy's" entrance into this institution 
of learning date, back into antiquity, yet all 
of this time has not been spent in study. 
There is no telling what he might have done 
for the science of agriculture had he steered 
clear of the fatherly advice of Musgrave or 
the friendly advances of "Bullv" Moore. 
"But surely the eye of time holds no name 
So blest as thine in all the roll of fame, 
Either as a sergeant in the Army or as a

latter and go back to Vimville and establish

"The poet at sunset sees 

Fair maidens under sycamore trees." 

Milton, the Poet, is never idle. If not 
preparing his theoretical work, lie is engaged 
in some practical mischief, generally the 
latter. The Poet is very consistent in his 
military duties. In fact, lie is so fond of 
discipline that rather than get "stuck," will 
occasionally secure a permit, thereby immun- 
izing himself from the effect of duties. Mil- 
ton's highest ambition is to settle down on 
some good farm and bring out all there is 
in the science of agriculture. He says that 
it will be very lonely for a while, lint for 
only a short time. 

Milton entered college in 1908, ami with 
the exception of one year since then has been 
a faithful student all along. We are sure 
that if he will put the same energv into his 
future occupation as he has done here, his 
life work will be successful.

much. lie joined us in our Sophomore year

Xo doubt that spark of military spirit was 
kindled away hack yonder at the beginning 
of his college career, when he enlisted with 
the J. C. Hardy volunteers, and under the 
command of Captain Treen, which has been 
manifested so much during the last two 
years. Notwithstanding his late start with 
the class, "Fred" has shown that In' is always 
ready to deliver the "goods" and has always 
been well up with his work. His special 
study is Agronomy, and he expects to show 
Uncle Sam something along that line in the 
near future. We wish him success along his 
chosen line.

We have been unable to find a worthier or 
more noble fellow than Clarence. Monroe 
County is responsible for the subject of this 
sketch. He came here in the middle of our 
freshman year and he has been a very valu- 
able addition to our class. Clarence, though 
rather quiet, has a host of friends and the 
good will of all who know him. He always 
greets you with a smile and was never known 
to say an unkind word to anyone. Sincerity, 
truth and duty arc exemplified in his daily 
life, for he practices what he preaches. Some

"./ heart to resolve, a head to contrive, 
and a hand to execute." 

"Cock Robbin," as he is universally known, 
has been with us since the beginning. Al- 
though of small stature, John is an engine 
of high power. This is especially true in the 
military line. In the classroom his work is 
among the best. Although quiet, we should 
remember that "The still water runs deep." 
"Bugology" is his specialty and we feel sure 
that some position is awaiting him because 
of his endurance and pride in the work. 
"Cock Robbin's" favorite pastime is telling 
his visitors of the lovely times he hail with 
his "Jane" during vacations. We often won- 
der if it is all true, and take his address for 
future reference. Ask him if he attended 
our Junior Banquet. We all wish you much 
success in whatever branch of life you may

Cullie, better known to us as "Ethel," 
joined us as a freshman and for four long 
years has labored untiringly to surmount all 
difficulties and has always met with great 
success. "Ethel's" specialty is military. He 
prides himself upon always sleeping through 
reveille, and morning drill, and seldom going 
to formations. He is quite an admirer of the 
ladies, especially show girls, and is peeved if 
he fails to receive his tri-weekly missive from 
"the girl I left behind me." Though "Ethel" 
is not a bookworm, he is a good fellow, and 
is popular with both faculty and students.

successful in all of your undertakings in the 
future as you were in winning the heart of a

In military he did not care which way the 
wind blew. In society he was on the spot, 
and in academic work he was never found 
lacking. His chief pastime during leisure

"certain individual" who is more than "a

every morning, but never too sleepy to say, 
"Yes, sir. Colonel! I am getting up." We

"From his superior height he views

Joe Lea came along in time to meet us in 
our Sophomore year and since has proved a 
valuable addition to the class. He has never 
known the position of a high-ranking officer 
in fact, but from one standpoint — as a pri- 
vate sees it. His time was spent with the 
academic work and we can all assure him lit- 
is greatly benefited by it. Frequently he is 
seen reading letters from Memphis, and this 
perhaps accounts for his non-appearance in 
Starkville society, lie says that in the near

and the ••line" will become a single point.

"Ready to meet yon face to face, 
At any time, at any place." 

"Bob" was sent from the little hamlet of 
Como to A. & M. to become a civil engineer. 
He entered the class as a Sophomore, and 
since then he has studied hard to become an 
engineer of which his native folk may be 
proud. From the very first he has taken a 
part in football, and this year made his 
reputation as one of the best Varsity men. 
Bob really believes he is "by" the or- 
dinary man when it comes to ladies, but 
society doesn't seem to worry him very much 
except on some occasions, he will become 
aroused and make a venture, but it has 
never become a habit with him. His chief 
assets are his good nature and the smile 
which he always wears, these having made 
him many friends during his three years 
here. If he tackles the world as he has 
his work in college we cannot conceive of 
anything but a big success for him.

Two of the most felicitous cognomens in 
the world of nomenclature have been applied 
to this manufacturer of smiles — "Happy" and 
"Love." The former, and more appropriate, 
because of his ever present and always 
genuine smile; the latter because of his re- 
markable resemblance to one of our most 
popular professors, Mr. Love. "Happy," 
with his jovial wit and unaffected humor, 
came to us in our Junior year. Preferring 
the romance and glamour of the Civil En- 
gineer's life to the dull, uninteresting routine 
of a Methodist circuit rider, he decided to 
cast his lot in with us instead of staying 
at Millsaps. He stands well in his classes, 
and better in the hearts and esteem of his 
classmates. If he does not falter in the 
stride he has struck during the two years 
he has spent with us, we are sure that he 
will realize his fondest hope and highest 
ambition — to occupy Dr. Walker's chair as

No, it is not the breaking- of another day 
that casts its shining beams athwart the 
darkness of space, it is merely the illumi- 
nating and contagious smile of Stansel. From 
the first "Fatty" has been a great factor in

countenance sheds its brilliant effulgence in 
all directions, lightening many a homesick 
heart. Our best wishes go with those who 
work to defray expenses for a college train- 
ing, who strive unceasingly and meet suc- 
cess. Stansel's strong will power, love of in- 
dustry and independent nature have charac- 
terized his every step. He ranks second to 
none in the class; is greatly interested in lit- 
erary and society work, the college publica- 
tions, athletics and various other student ac- 
tivities. As president of the Senior Class 
and Business Manager of the College Reflec- 
tor, he has shouldered many of their respon- 
sibilities, and has always met them fairly 
and squarely.

Strahan is earnest, good-natured and a

and does not care for politics or the girls, 
and he is known to everyone as "Maude." 
He has been a diligent student and deserves

that some day lie will succeed in establishing 
South Mississippi as a stock country.

Our friend "Sol" became a member of the

not long before be was known to both class-

counted on for good work. "Kid Strahan" 
also showed up well in military, performing 
his duty well, and as an officer letting 
"Mercy temper justice." No one admires the 
ladies more than he, and still you would not 
classify him as a society man. From the 
thickness of the letters which be gets from 
Columbus, one is convinced immediately that 
he is at least well acquainted with and ap- 
preciated by one young lady. Ask him about 
"Daisy." Sol will some day lie a Master Me-

"A loving, generous character, who dues." 
Mollov, a great bustler, came from the 
nearby 'vicinity of Caledonia, and by pluck 
and bard work made tbe course in three 
years. He took a part in many college ac- 
tivities and ardently supported all. But there 
was one activity which to him all others were 
second. This 'was the Y. M. C. A. His 
faithful work on the Devotional Committee, 
the hand book, and the Loyal Sons' Sunday 
School Class will not be forgotten by those 
who know. He represented the college at the 
Black Mountain Conference, in the Student 
Volunteer Movement at Kansas City, Mo., 
and won first place in the Y. M. C. A. build- 
ing contest. He presumes upon tbe theory 
that activity hurts no one, as is shown by his 
securing horseshoe ads for the Reflector, 
iiid even in strapping cadets in the section 
room. He has practically worked his way 
through school, and, indeed, without his song 
book and the tune "Just the same," our sec- 
tion would have never known many happy 
moments. "Yaughnie," success be thine, is 
our wish.

"None but himself can be his parallel." 

As far as is known, Lowndes County is re- 
sponsible for the subject of this sketch. 
"Rube," as he is familiarly known, originated 
in Columbus, and has been with us three 
years. He has proven a good student and 
has not neglected his studies, yet we all know 
that he devoted a great deal of his time to 
the study of military; especially to devising 
methods of avoiding it. His chief pastime 
is serving "extras,'" and he considers a Sat- 
urday afternoon utterly devoid of pleasure if 
the monotony is not broken by the walking 
of "Tours." Also, he is ardently devoted to 
football and makes this sport his chief rec- 
reation. "Rube" is fired with ambition to 
become a great Electrical Engineer, and we 
hope some day to see him following in the 
footsteps of Edison.

him a successful man in his future work. 
Though not a shining light in agricultural 
engineering, we feel sure that he is familiar 
enough with it for all practical purposes. 
His work in college activities, and especially 
in the clubs and organizations, has been quite 
extensive. It is in this connection that many 
of us thought Floyd would have to be classed 
as a "ladies' man." However, he does not re- 
frain entirely, and we cannot quite put him 
on the "genuine sports" list. Here is best 
wishes to you, Floyd. We are expecting 
great things from you in the agricultural

"Alphabet" is one of those men of a re- 
tiring disposition who do not push themselves 
into the spotlight of notoriety, hut go their 
way quietly and without ostentation. Al- 
though he has in a measure kept his light hid, 
those who really know him have a sincere 
respect for him. While "Shadow" has never 
been accused of being a devotee of the fair 
sex, it is generally acknowledged I hat his 
qualifications as a ladies' man are phenom- 
enal. Probably his apparent lack of interest 
in society has been due to his deep and ab- 
sorbing passion for things military. So 
marked has his success I een along this line 
thai he at one time thought of teaching a 
special class in He art of handling a gun; 
this plan, however, was finally abandoned. 
If in after life he shows the same persever- 
ance and good nature that he has shown 
while here, his success is assured.

The deeds of renown and chivalry of our heroes of the past ages have been 
chronicled in song and story by the inspired muses. Their achievements have 
been wrought into figures of stone and bronze by the sculptors. Writers have 
vied with each other in immortalizing them in literature. It is therefore fitting 
that we pay tribute to a body of men — gentlemen all, who possess the traits 
that bespeak true manhood. Men who by their perseverance and endurance 
during four years of brain-racking toil, delving into the intricacies of science 
and laboring under innumerable difficulties, have been crowned with the richest 
laurels of success, — Hail the incomparable Class '14 ! 

It was in the memorable fall of 1910 that the bulk of our warrior band 
assembled on the classic hills of the Mississippi A. &. M. College, and promptly 
made preparations for a four-year siege of that mighty stronghold. Our exter- 
nal appearance as "Freshies" was green — yea verdant, but underneath all was a 
virgin golden embryo in which lay hidden the qualities and attributes requisite 
for conquerors and which developed during the years of college activity. 

From the very first we demonstrated our ability to compete successfully 
in the different contests. In the clash for class football superiority, such a 
spirit of aggressiveness and determination was never before manifest by Fresh- 
men. Only after a bitter struggle were the Juniors proclaimed the victors, 
and their battered features bore true testimony to the fierceness of the combat. 
While probably the largest class to matriculate at this institution, we have 
ever been bound together with a feeling of enthusiasm and of good fellowship. 
Class unity was and is characteristic in every sense of the word. 

We returned to continue the conquest in our Sophomore year with more 
polished appearances (which the professors mistook for wisdom). Our bitter- 
est rivals succumbed to the victorious tread of our mighty warriors of the 
gridiron and diamond. Other classes bowed to the inevitable. The tank was 
decorated with a portentous *l-f which has since looked down in calm suprem- 
acy, unmolested. In an attempt to celebrate Washington's Birthday with due 
pomp, necessitating absenting ourselves from all duties, many an ambitious 
corporal was stripped of his ornamental insignia and there was much lamenta- 
tion anion"- such members of our ranks. 

Our Junior year was a stormy one — a stage in our metamorphosis which 
was to "try men's souls." We are not ashamed to say we were in the strike of 
November, 1912. Nor do I care to dwell upon conditions leading up to this 
event. Suffice it to say, we returned home with a feeling of sorrow mingled 
with pride, knowing that we could still hold up our heads without shame. 
After due deliberation, realizing that the education of most of us was at stake 
and feeling that we had exercised undue haste in our action, we returned to 
renew the conquest for Knowledge. Through our efforts the military standard 
of the institution was upheld. During this year our class produced some very 
promising orators who reflected a great deal of credit upon themselves and on 
the institution by winning every contest in the Mississippi Triangular Debate. 

At last we are Seniors, we have reached the climax of our conquest and at 
its successful termination in June our faithful warriors will bear off their 
"dips" triumphantly, prepared to face the trials of life and conquer. We were 
denied privileges in this year that would have made our life here more enjoy- 
able, yet we cheerfully adjusted ourselves to the new "customs" and performed 
the duties devolving upon us satisfactorily. 

We are now about to enter into life's many and varied activities ; opportu- 
nities are beckoning us on to do great things and our four years of college 
training we feel has rendered us able to cope successfully with the great prob- 
lems that are to confront us. It pulls the heart-strings to part with the 
friends we love so well, yet duty stands before us and bids us be up and doing. 

May true manhood, loyalty to our fellowmen, and an indomitable spirit 
characterize us in the future as true leaders of men.

Junior (Elaas Iftstnnj 

The Class of '15, like some of the great men of the past, met with resist- 
ance, but, halting not, they marched forth with a hold, fearless determination 
to scan the future and quickly overcome every obstacle. We have crossed the 
stream of success and pride, surmounted the peaks of adversity, plodded 
through fields of hidden mysteries, and overcome mountains of opposition. At 
no time have we grown faint-hearted and fallen by the wayside ready to give 
up in despair, but instead our misfortunes have served to lift up our purposes 
and stimulate our progressive journey with greater vim and keener determina- 
tion. The battle is three-fourths won, we no longer think of the blood-stained 
flag, but listen to the sweet voice of "almost completed" echoing and re-echoing 
along the distant hills. 

Our college career has been rugged, yet fruitful. We have achieved 
gracious success under manifold difficulties, and leave behind a record that is 
yet to be surpassed. This ( the Junior) year has been the "Golden Age" of 
our college career. It is true we unfortunately dropped a few of our old men 
from the list, but not from memory, while men from other institutions have 
taken their places, and we can still boast of having the largest class ever 
assembled at A. & M. — a class having in it men who possess requisites for great 

We have given the very best that we possessed in every phase of college 
activity, whether it be in the class rooms, shops, or on the athletic field. To 
"Push Forward" has been our motto. We are represented in every branch of 
athletics by able men; in football we have furnished six varsity men and nine 
scrubs. In other branches of athletics we are equally as well represented. The 
Junior Class football team was one of the strongest on the field, having "licked" 
the dignified Seniors and won second place in the championship series. In the 
selection of All-Class football team, the Class of "15 was represented by five. 
Yet that is not all. The men who received the hard knocks on the football field 
and caught the hot balls on the diamond are also the leaders in academic work, 
which bids fair to establish the new rule that requires class room efficiency 
before athletic activities. 

Our work for the present session shows that we have not been negligent 
in the affairs that pertain to college life. While nothing really wonderful has 



been accomplished, still there are many little things which have been done which 
add life and vigor to our college surroundings. For instance, in our Sopho- 
more year our debating team returned from Moorhead with Millsap's scalp 
hanging at their belts. We have heartily supported the Y. M. C. A., assisted 
in making the Dramatic Club a wonderful success, and have generously sup- 
ported all the other organizations of the institution. 

Ere many moons we shall have passed from Juniordom into Seniordom, 
and ere we are set in our dignified ways the Class of '15 will be no more, but 
its memories and pleasant associations shall ever cling to the heart of every 
loyal Fifteener. Then the love, the friendships, and the imperishable memories 
of our noble band will pass into the history of our Alma Mater.

Our ship is rounding a goodly cape, 

She has weathered many a gale; 
And hope and courage are flowing free 

As the wind that fills every sail. 

We've passed the stress of our Freshman days, 
Through the straits of Sophomore year; 

We've carried through waves foam-capped anil high 
Our Maroon and Gold shining clear. 

Propelled by favoring breezes strong 

Ncxl we reached the Junior pier, 
Shipped a cargo, of wonderful lore; 

Bid we now adieu to this year. 

Again, with face to the broad, broad sea, 

With its waves that unceasingly roll. 
We pray the wind that has blown us here 

Will bring us safe to the Senior goal. 

Our ship will reach her intended port, 

With the fruits of worthiest deeds; 
A band of friends bound together fast 

Let us share life's toils and its meeds.

g>aptfamate QUaaa IjiBtnry 

The history of Class 'l(i is necessarily not lengthy, but is of such character as to make 
every Sixteener justly proud. It was in September of 19U> that our verdant band made its 
debut into the A. & M. life. After serving out our term buying bath tickets and guarding 
monuments on rainy nights, we finally emerged from that stage of our metamorphosis and got 
down to real hard work. Class organization was effected very early in our career, and we 
have since grown more and more welded together in class unity. 

Notwithstanding the fact that the strike in November of that year scattered us to the 
four winds, most of us were back and at work by the first of December with our ranks 
depleted. Basket Ball season was on hand soon, and we showed our prowess in this direc- 
tion by barely losing the championship fray to the Juniors after a very spirited series. Never 
faltering, however, we came back in the field-day meet and again made success very difficult 
for the Juniors, who won by a very narrow margin of points. ' 

At the opening of the session of 1913-14 our fellows showed the quality of their make- 
up by being on hand at the beginning with almost all of the men who had composed our class 
in the previous year. Some few of our comrades were missing, but their places were oc- 
cupied by new men, and Class 'l(j continued to lie a very large class. And those of us who 
failed on any of our Freshman work, returned with greater determination to obtain knowl- 
edge and keep pace with our fellows than ever before. 

In athletics the present Sophomore Class has not been found lacking. We have furnished 
more Varsity men for the various teams than did any other preceding Sophomore Class. 
And although our Class teams have not attained pre-eminent success in every line, they have 
in every case made a determined effort, and are none the less dismayed for the future because 
we have not won first. On the other hand, our future teams shall battle all the harder in order 
to attain the goals we have in the past all but made. 

But when we consider that quality of the Class that makes for greatness, it is not alone 
in athletics that Class "Mi has an enviable record; as men gentlemen, sane, honest, and 
studious men our band of fellows will compare favorably with any other class in college. Our 
Class, as a. class, has not been of the braggart type that may be found in some classes — they 
are very conservative in manner, speech and character. At the very beginning of our 
career, we resolved to make the Y. M. C. A. our most intimate friend, and it has been for our 
fellows to aid in its generous support. Our support came not only in a passive measure, but 
the Sophomores were very active in securing the Y. M. C. A. Building Fund, and we are 
entertaining hopes of sharing the many privileges that the building will afford us, as well 
as the inestimable good which it will afford future students at our Alma Mater. 

In reviewing the history of achievements of Class 'Mi you will find that it is not in the big 
things that our Class has done most, but it is the many, many little deeds nobly done which 
will forever enshrine in the hearts of thinking men the Class of 1916.

Jfrpshmau (Class Bistort! 

We are not prophets that we may pierce the veil of the future and bring 
to view a record of achievements which are to be accomplished. But, taking 
past accomplishments as indicative of what is likely to be, we can safely predict 
a record for Class '17 that, cannot easily be surpassed — a record of the noblest 
attainments of man. 

The great chain of hoys who constitute our ranks appeared in college 
circles early in September of 1913. The new sights and surroundings were at 
first appalling to the timid sort, but ere long they had imbibed their bolder 
brother classmen's spirit until they learned to stand for their rights, and with 
heads erect, felt no humiliation at. having the title "Freshies" thrust upon 
them. In the beginning it was clearly a case of the survival of the fittest, and 
with that dominant fighting spirit imbued from infancy, we began to meet 
foemen with a cool fearlessness. 

Thus foe, trained and experienced, appeared on every hand. He had to 
be conquered in society, in the halls of oratory, on the athletic fields, and in 
innumerable other places. That is not exceptional, as all other classes have 
had to encounter the same difficulties at the beginning. But it is something to 
be proud of that we have won the title of "Champions of the Gridiron." 

In the recitation rooms there has been swift and sure progress, and when 
the awe-inspiring climax of ascending into higher classes shall come, we will 
not tremble with the fear of being unprepared or incompetent, but. will meet 
the barriers with knife and lance aflame with the fires of determination that 
are characteristic of Class '17'. What care we then if the hours are long or 
studies hard? A class that has once won can again accomplish the same end, 
even along different lines. 

In a few short years our troubles here will be forgotten, and Ave will recall 
with pleasure the happy days of our Freshman year and the progress then 
made toward that goal sought by all. Volumes could be written on the noble 
characters that compose our class, but in this short space only a brief intro- 
duction is made that will give an insight to the triumphs and successes already 
valiantly begun, which will be renewed with greater lustre in the years to come.

3hp Dramatic (Club auit 3J1h Status 

One frequently hears the statement, "The Dramatic Club is the very best club in A. & M.," 
nnd this statement is not overdrawn in the least. Truly the personnel of the club and tin- 
quality nf art displayed have won for it this high praise. While the primary object of the club 

is to pro te the dramatic side of the development of its members, and this it has done; still 

there is such a feeling of good fellowship among each and every member of the organization, 
together with the abundant opportunities for social development, that the social benefit derived 
from membership in this "hand of jolly good fellows" is of no little importance. 

Members are taken from the best qualified of the college and campus. Only persons who 
are entirely satisfactory in every respect to the members of the club are taken in. So much 
judgment has been exercised in this direction that there is not an individual in the club who is 
not liked by every other member of the club. This has caused the ties of fellowship to be 
cemented; indeed that is the striking characteristic of this hand of fellow amateurs — FELLOW- 
SHIP. Too, the membership is limited to twenty- ten from the Senior Class and ten from the 
Junior Class. 

Heretofore the Dramatic Clnh has never been so active in its organization and presentation 
of plays. This year effectual organization took place very early in the session and before the 
end of the first term the great college drama, "Strongheart," was enacted during the first term 
in the College Chapel, in the I. 1. & C. Chapel at Columbus, and at the theatres in Tupelo and 
Corinth. Everywhere "Strongheart" was presented it made a decided hit and the club ended 
the first term feeling that they had accomplished gracious success in the dramatic field. 

The second term opened with a roaring comedy, "Charlie's Aunt," booked for the mid-term 
appearance. Crowded badly with work, the players were unable to get this play in the best 
condition for presentation until immediately following the second term examinations. It was 
then shown at the College, in Columbus, and in West Point; in each place the clnh found that 
the play met with the same successful presentation that characterized the appearance of the 
initial play. 

following "Charlie's Aunt" in quick succession, the witty drama, "The Butterflies," was 
prepared for staging. The outlook for fully as successful advent of this number is encouraging 
and the plans are that this play together with the second will he staged at Grenada, Kosciusko, 
Oxford, and probably Greenville. 

Although the dramatic year of this organization has not closed, from past successes and 
from present outlooks, we judge that the club will end the year as profitably as it commenced 
it. The year has already borne many happy hours to the fellows and ladies of the hand and in 
future years remembrances of genial association and comradeship in the A. & M. Dramatic Clnh 
for the year T 913-14' shall he a cheerful thought to all such as arc fortunate enough to have been 
members of that select organization.

The Young Men's Christian Association was organized at the Agricultural 
and Mechanical College in 188*2. Since that time it lias been the center of 
Christian life among the students. The aim of the Young Men's Christian 
Association is to develop clean, strong. Christian men. The work of the 
association is wide and varied, and every student has the opportunity of enter- 
ing the various phases and activities, thereby developing the power of leader- 
ship and becoming better fitted to battle with the realities of life. 

The activities of the association embrace: Mission study, in which live 
topics are taught by professors of the college, four of such subjects being 
given the past year, namely, "Uplift of China," 1 which is very pertinent to the 
present condition of China; "The Challenge of the Country,'" "Aliens or 
Americans," and "Negro Life in the South." Three hundred and twenty 
students were enrolled in this course. Bible study is one of the best means for 
reaching the inner life of the student body, and great interest is taken in the 
several subjects taught in this course, four hundred and fifty men pledging 
to attend these classes, which are taught by students. Owing to lack of facili- 
ties, the classes meet in the dormitories, but we expect this to be remedied when 
the new building is completed. The leaders of Bible study classes meet in 
normal-class groups under the leadership of the pastors of Starkville. Prayer 
meetings are held every Wednesday night, at which time there is a large attend- 
ance. These meetings are very helpful and full of the spirit of prayer. The 
regular association meetings are held in the chapel Sunday evenings, the lecture 
usually being delivered by a professor of the college or an out-of-town speaker 
engaged for the occasion. The meetings so far this year have been inspiring 
and with an attendance that averaged over two hundred. In November, 1913. 
the State Conference was held here. Most of the important schools and col- 
leges sent representatives. The conference was the means of deepening the 
spiritual life of the entire college, and will long be remembered by those who 
came in close touch with the conference. This year has been a fortunate one 
to us in some respects, as the Student Volunteer Convention was held at Kansas 
City in .January, enabling us to gather inspiration from the great world 
leaders on the world's greatest needs. Six delegates attended the conference. 

Many homes on the campus and in the town of Starkville have been 
opened for the entertainment of our Bible study classes, besides other socials 
at which the entire membership was entertained. The social feature of the 
association is stressed and we try to make things as near homelike as possible 
for the students. Work is rapidly progressing on our new home, and the 
association endeavors, when that new building is completed, and we move to 
our new home, to make "life worth more" at old A. & M.

A. & M. started the season with but three regulars from last year's squad. 
With these men and several of last year's subs, Coaches Chadwick and Hayes 
opened one of the heaviest schedules the Maroon and White has had to face. 
The most optimistic admirers could see nothing but defeat staring the "Bull- 
dogs" in the fact' m the coming important games. But what was the result? 

Working with a dogged determination to uphold the honor of dear old 
A. & M., the boys threw aside such obstacles as lack of material, experience, 
and a difficult schedule. They started in to upset dope, realizing that it meant 
the battle of their lives to build up a fighting machine which would be able to 
cope with the powerful elevens they had to meet. How well they succeeded we 
all know, and we are all justly proud of those hard-earned victories. 

The opening game with Howard turned out to be a burlesque, for the 
Howard collegians were unable to withstand the fierce plunges of the "Aggies' ' 
backs or prevent the big farmer line from breaking through. Following this 
was the much talked of Mississippi College game. With the score standing 14 
to 13 against them and eight more minutes to play, Mississippi College forfeited 
the game. This forfeiture of the game 1 to by Coach Bible left our record 
clear, and we entered the Kentucky game with a clean slate 

The winning of the Kentucky game by an overwhelming score, of course 
gave the team added life, and they journeyed to Birmingham actually believing 
themselves capable of taking Auburn's measure. But they reckoned without 
taking into consideration Donahue's cleverness as a coach, and his ability to 
turn out formidable elevens. Following the disastrous game with Auburn the 
Maroon and White journeyed to Texas to tackle the Big Texas aggregation, 
which defeated us the year previous 42 to 7. Showing a complete reversal of 
form over the preceding Saturday, they walloped Texas A. & M. on their own 
soil 7 to 0, and that after one of the hardest trips any S. I. A. A. team had to 
take the whole season. Worn out, but cheered by this victory, the team re- 
turned home for the game with Tulane on Nov. 1. When the smoke cleared 
away A. X: M. had added another seal]) to her list, and Tulane was forced to 
return to New Orleans sadder but much the wiser for their trip to Starkville. 

And then our game with L. S. U. ! This 0-0 deadlock was by far the pret- 
tiest exhibition of football ever seen on Hardy Field. Neither team was able 

to show to advantage, though A. & M. did finally fight their way down to within 
the shadow of the Louisiana goal only to be stopped by the whistle ending the 
fierce struggle. Having upset dope so badly by holding L. S. U. to an even 
game, enthusiasm naturally ran riot through the halls of the college, and every- 
one turned their attention to the crucial Thanksgiving game with Alabama. 
The "Aggies" clearly outplayed Alabama, winning the game by a score of 7-0. 
Playing eight games, winning six, tying one and losing one to Auburn, the 
undefeated Southern champions when we were badly crippled, we feel no hesi- 
tancy in laying claim to second place in the standing of S. I. A. A- teams. 
"Tis true that A. & M. boasted of no Newells, McWhorters, Duttons or Pad- 
docks, but they did have a team of eleven men banded together as a unit, who 
played for the sake of winning the game and not for individual glory. And 
they won !

Spun lock. 

Although this was Spurlock's first year 

on the squad, he proved himself to be one 

of the most dependable men at guard that 

has ever represented the Maroon and White 


Kinney, the little quarterback, though 
playing his first year on the 'Varsity, han- 
dled the team successfully, and proved the 
old axiom that quality and not quantity 


This was Potter's second year on I lie 
'Varsity and the big fellow handled him- 
self in grand style throughout the entire 
season. His defensive work featured many 
a game. 

Though Noble was handicapped at the 
beginning of the season with injuries, he 
played great hall whenever he was able to 
enter the game. His great speed was the 
talk of gridiron circles. 




Coach Chadwick. 
Coach Chadwick's ability as a football 
coach was severely tested this season, and 
he was not found lacking. With green ma- 
terial to work with, he turned out the best 
team in years. 

Coach Hayes. 
Coach Hayes has proven himself a first- 
class coach in every respect. His ability 
to mix with the fellows and get them to 
work for him is the keynote of his success. 

"Esau" was one of our first-string half- 
backs this season, and was always there 
with the "pep" and fight. His line plunges 
struck terror to all opponents. 

"Dub" compared favorably with any 
tackle in the South. The big fellow is fast, 
powerful, and aggressive. He uses all of 
these good qualities in his attempts to break 
the opposing line. 


"Jew" was quite a surprise to many this 
season. Being given an opportunity to 
prove his worth, he soon developed into one 
of the star line men on our team. 

This is Pete's first year with us, and he 
was not used regularly. However, he is a 
fast man, aggressive, and a fierce tackier. 
\o doubt lie will he a valuable man next 
vea r. 

Big Mac was shifted from the line to half- 
back this season, and took to the place like 
duck to water. Many of his admirers pre- 
dict an All-Southern berth for him next 


"Cush" was used at several positions this 

year, but played end like a veteran. His 

punting was good at all times, and will be 

sorely missed next year, when he leaves us. 


Shaw rounded into form towards the end 
of the season, and was one of our best 
ends. His size and speed should make him 
a valuable man next season. 

"Senator Crumb" played a very strong- 
game at end during the latter Dart of the 
season. He is fast, heavy, and powerful, 
and will make a wonder some day. 


"Fatty" played a star game at center 
the entire season. He was good both on 
offense and deiense, and is easily the best 
tackier on the team. 

This was Hurst's first year on the team, 
but lie played good, consistent ball when- 
ever he was allowed to enter the game. 
He will be a good man next season.

Class football was again the center of attraction at A. X: M. after the close 
of the regular "varsity schedule. The games this season were probably the most 
successful and most important ever staged between the classes. 

Several reasons are attributed to their unusual importance and the inter- 
est manifested this season. The teams were evenly matched, it being practically 
impossible to pick the best one from mere observation. Then, too, our next 
year's "varsity team depends a great deal on the men who participated in these 
class contests. In addition, the athletic department, for the first time in the 
history of the institution, decided to award sweaters to the eleven men making 
the coveted all-class eleven. 

The series of elimination games opened with the seniors and juniors facing 
each other, ready for a battle royal. Neither side was able to score, however, 
so the dispute had to run for another week. In the meantime the freshmen suc- 
ceeded in drubbing the sophomores by a score of 7-0. One week following the 
sophomore Waterloo was the day appointed for the resumption of hostilities 
between the seniors and juniors. Towards the end of a hard, gruelling contest 
the juniors placed a lucky drop kick between the horizontals, thus giving them 
the right to argue with the freshmen for class supremacy. 

With the odds seemingly against them the big freshmen team entered the 
contest "to do or die." Just how well they succeeded we all know ! The game 
was running smoothly, with neither side showing to any decided advantage, 
when all of a sudden one of the powerful freshmen backs slipped through the 
heretofore impregnable junior breastworks, evaded all tacklers and planted the 
coveted pigskin between the uprights for the only touchdown of the game. 
Though the juniors raged inwardly, their outward attempts were fruitless, and 
the lowly freshmen were acknowledged class champions for the season of 1913. 

One bright morning soon after there was an unusual commotion noticed 
around the chapel and in the vicinity of the parade grounds. Upon investiga- 
tion it was found that the large '14< which had reposed there for several years 
had disappeared during the night, and in its place an immense '17 looked out 
over the campus, monarch of all it surveyed. Thus endeth the story, fulfilling 
the prophecy that "The last shall be first, and the first last."

A. & M. has a remarkable basket ball record behind her, having won the S. 
T. A. A. for two consecutive years, and the state championship for three years. 
Our 'varsity has not only won the state championship for three years, but, in 
addition to this, has not been defeated by a Mississippi team during that period. 
In fact, they have lost but two games in three years, dropping the two in ques- 
tion to Alabama this season. 

Our team this year deserves much credit for the strong game they played 
a 4 - all times. With but two veterans back and a few of last, year's scrubs Coach 
Hayes was compelled to use this material as a nucleus to round out another 
team which would be able to defend the Maroon and White colors. 

Now that the curtain lias fallen on the last act of the 1914 basket ball 
season it may be of interest to some to know just bow it happened. It is use- 
less to attempt to pick a star, for every man played his position well, and all 
should share in the honor.

Ilaaeball, 1913 

The Maroon and White was probably better represented on the baseball 
field last year than ever before. They lost but one series out of twenty-eight 
games, and that to the University of Alabama, claimants for the S. I. A, A. 

A. & M. opened her collegiate season with Marion Military Institute, win- 
ning both games handily- Tulane was next to suffer the humiliation of a dou- 
ble defeat at the hands of the "'Aggies." 

Following the games with Tulane the farmer boys visited Alabama in 
Tuscaloosa, but were unable to stop the fast Alabama aggregation, the Red 
and White winning two games from us by a margin of one run each time. Upon 
their return home they tackled Millsaps for a series of three games, storing two 
of those games away for safe keeping. 

The next week A. & M. took her trip, stopping at Jackson long enough to 
trounce Millsaps again, and then journeying to Baton Rouge, where they took 
all three games from L. S. U. From there they went to Tulane, taking one 
and losing one. 

This trip hurt the team, however, and when Alabama came over to return 
our visit the best we could do was to play them one twelve-inning tie game and 
lose another twelve-inning game by one run. This blasted our hopes for the 
Southern championship, but still left us the state championship to work for. 
Thus, when Mississippi College arrived, we were well prepared to give her a 
hearty reception. The two games were evenly divided, leaving the game at Aber- 
deen to decide the state championship squabble. We all know how easy our 
Mississippi College friends were on that occasion, so for the third consecutive 
year A. & M. was able to flaunt her colors over all rivals for state supremacy in 

As a fitting climax to such a successful season the boys chased up to Nash- 
ville and took proud old Vanderbilt's measure in two of the three games played. 
Taking the season as a whole, we believe that A. & M. had a clear claim to 
second place in the S. I. A. A.

Srark Sworb. 1013 

A. & M. enjoyed her most successful year on the track last year, winning 
the state championship by an overwhelming margin and losing the S. I. A. A. 
meet by only three points. Inasmuch as this was the first time A. & M. has ever 
entered the Southern meet, the "Aggies'" have just cause to feel proud of their 
record established last year at New Orleans. 

In the state meet A. & M. made 92 out of a possible 120 points, or, in 
other words, about three times as many as the other colleges of the state put 
together. Wells, for A. & M., in the 220-yard dash, established a record of 
21 1-5 seconds. This record was not beaten by any college man in America 
during last year. 

At the S. I. A. A. meet in New Orleans Lamb broke the Southern record 
for the discus throw, hurling the discus 11-t feet. Scott was the particular 
star of the meet, winning the quarter easily over the best quarter-milers in the 
South, and establishing a new Southern record for the half mile. In addition 
to this, he ran the fastest quarter mile of the meet in the relay race, and that 
after he had walked away with the other two events.

The train was speeding on to Jackson, and as I sat moodilv watching the 
fleeting landscape my mind again reviewed the chance that I might have of 
playing in the great Thanksgiving game against the University. The whole 
season passed before my mental eye as was passing the bleak fields outside the 
coach window. The early hopes for full membership on the 'Varsity had long 
since vanished, and I was glad to be even taken on the trips and allowed to 
don my old uniform and watch the game from the sidelines — a sub. 

The final game of the season was only a few hours awav, and my thoughts 
persistently dwelt on the possibility of my getting into it ; there came the mem- 
ory of the erratic work of Evers in the last game. Coach had jerked him out 
in the second half and I was put in. Tech had made several long gains around 
left end. Evers did not seem to be able to break into the interference; he was 
in the midst of the play, but seemed to offer little resistance to the plunging 
backs that kept plugging at him. At rare intervals he would flash behind the 
line and down the players before they had hardly received the ball, and then he 
seemed to lose all ambition to stop the opposing backfield at all, who, under 
the lash of the sharp-voiced, red-haired quarter had raced noisily around his 
end time after time for long gahis. Tech had beaten us 23 to 0. But I remem- 
bered that all the scoring had been done before I was put in. I wondered if I 
deserved any credit for that. Only two or three plays had been started around 
my end, and I had been lucky enough to stop them somehow. The game was 
won, so why should they try to humiliate us by piling up the score? I had 
guessed that they had let up about the time of my advent into the game. 

Earlier in the season I had been permitted to play against Alabama during 
the last half, and as I recalled this fact I thought of the statement given out 
by the athletic committee that men playing three halves — we had no quarters 
then as now — would be given a jersey with the coveted M on the breast. If I 
could only get to play in half of the great game tomorrow I should be entitled 
to wear this prized emblem of ability. But no; Evers was the more experienced 
man, and too much depended upon our winning the game for me to think of 
my personal desires. Still it would be pleasant to wear the letter. How luce 
they appeared on the other fellows! Evers did not have one; it was his first 
year as well as mine, but others around me bravely displayed them beneath 
their coats. 

My meditations were interrupted by Evers himself dropping into the seat 
beside me. He did not seem to be in the best of spirits. After carelessly 
Hinging a paper aside he asked me if 1 knew Thorne personally. I had never 
seen or heard of Thorne until he bobbed up as right tackle at the University, 

so I promptly denied the honor of his acquaintance. Wondering why Evers had 
asked such a question, I was about to voice my thought when he said : 

"I see that the halfback at S. P. U. whom this Tliorne put in the hospital 
witli three broken ribs is able to be out again and may play in tomorrow's 
game. I understand that the fellow will not graduate because of the time lost 
in the hospital. Rough, isn't it?" 

"He may be able to make up the back work," I replied. "You know it is 
a long time till commencement yet." 

"Not getting homesick, are you?" he said, watching me closely. 

"Oh, no, not at all," I answered. "He really should be able to finish if he 
has no back work to make up." 

"Well, anyway, Thorne fixed him up in nice style. Three ribs and as 
many bruises as is given the usual tough steak in an eat joint." 

He picked up the paper and turned carelessly to the sporting page, where 
to my surprise I saw a picture of a fellow in football toggerv under which was 
printed an article to the effect that Thorne was expected to be the chief aggres- 
sor in the championship clash on the morrow, when University played A. & M. 
in the annual Turkey Day fracas. The picture showed a man of athletic build, 
but the striking thing about it was his face. Never have I seen so ferocious an 
expression on a man's face. Evers had noticed it, too. 

"Guess the photographer forgot to ask him to 'look pleasant, please,' 
when he struck that off," he said whimsically. 

"I would by no means back him at a beauty show," I rejoined. "Looks 
as if his face had been burned or something." 

"Well, we'll see more of him tomorrow, and we will change that look into a 
sob before the game is over," Evers replied, as he began to take his suitcase 
from the rack. "We'll be in town in a few minutes." 

The others were crowding toward the door, and Evers joined them to 
reply to some bit of raillery that Burke, the other end, had shot at him. Burke 
was the life of the team, and his wit was famed the country round. He had been 
on the team for three years, and his work had been one of our main assets in 
the paper battle that had been waged for the past week in the press of this 
section. He had coached Evers during the whole of the season, and had also 
given me some valuable advice about breaking up plays. Every fellow who 
knew him was his friend. 

"Old Ugly Mug is going to eat you up tomorrow," he was telling Evers as 
we alighted from the train and waited for the coach to get some baggage that 
had been checked "Gobble you up, hide and all," he finished. 

■<■--■.-?•- " 

"I'll ask coach to put Sandy in first so his appetite will not be so keen 
when lie gets to me," Evers replied, laughing. 

"Does he start at the head?" I called to Burke. "If so I will put some 
rocks in my headgear to aid his digestion." 

After supper Evers and I were walking out of the hotel lobby when Evers 
whispered to me to look, nodding his head toward a passing fellow, and follow- 
ing his nod I saw Thome. There was no question as to his identity. He looked 
as if he had just eaten a supper of horse shoes or some other dainty breakfast 
food that had not located itself exactly where it should. The expression on his 
face was terrible. We loitered around and saw him go over to the cigar coun- 
ter, where the girl involuntarily drew back on his approach. He asked for gum, 
which she handed him nervously, and immediately after she picked up a maga- 
zine as if to hide his face from her sight. 

Next morning as we gathered for breakfast around the big table I noticed 
that Evers did not look as fresh as he shou d have looked < n the morning of our 
greatest battle, and when coach asked him how he felt he replied that the bed 
at the hotel was the worst lie had ever seen. "All hills and hollows," he had 
said, "of the wrong size." 

Coach did not push the matter further, and the meal passed with the usual 
expressions preceding a great game. There were few references to the game 
itself and then only in some frivolous way, but many little incidents of tin 1 season 
that had almost passed. The tension was not too high, and still the interest 
was top-notch. Our coach was a master at this kind of work and deserved a 
more successful season than he had had. The fellows had been treated royally 
and were willing to wade through fire and brimstone if he had commanded it. 
But so many of us were new men. Coming from small villages of the state, 
where our football experience had been of the kicking kind, out on the pastures 
and in the vacant lots, we knew little indeed of this way of advancing the ball 
by science and skill. But he had labored hard, and we had lost only two games. 
A victory today would wipe out all the shortcomings of the early season, and a 
victorv w r ould require the full strength of every man that went to make up the 

The sun had passed the zenith and we began to dress for the game. Soon 
vre were in the bus on the way to the field of conflict. Evers had caused some 
delay by being late, but he explained that he had needed a shave, so no one 
had noticed his absence except that imperturbable smile that the coach had dis- 
played — which caused me to wonder if he had attached any importance to 
Evers'' absence. 

In a sort of dream I saw the game start without me, and from my position 
on the sidelines I watched the fierce battle wage to and fro. Neither team 

seemed able to advance the hall consistently, and so all of the playing was near 
the center of the gridiron. 

The evil face of Thorne flashed about this way and that. He seemed able 
to foresee each play, and I noticed that when tackling men he rolled every 
chance he had, seemingly in hope of twisting an ankle or knee and weakening 
our team by forcing in substitutes. Moreland, our big fullback, had been 
caught in one of his twisting tackles and had had time called. He seemed very 
angry about something, and after a whispered word to our quarter most of 
our plays were aimed at Thorne. Moreland was a powerful fellow, and his 
plunging over Thome's position worked well for a time, but soon the gaining 
ceased. Then it was that I noticed that Evers had been "catching smoke" in 
the plays on his side of the line. 

The ball went over and University seemed to prefer to run plays over 
Thome's position. And he was making great holes in the line, which required 
the closest vigilance of the backs to keep plugged. Then they tried off end 
plays over Evers. Every second or third play was around or over him for five 
or ten yards. The terrible strain was telling. 

There was a commotion outside the wire fence. I turned to sec a police- 
man waving a telegram. Stepping to the fence I was told that it was for Evers. 
"It is very important," the officer said. I saw that it was unsealed and, open- 
ing it, I read: "Mother dying; come at once. FATHER." 

This was indeed a sad blow to come to a fellow at the height of his success. 
Under stress of the occasion I determined not to show it until after the game. 
No trains left at this time and a delay would not matter. I could break the 
news better and more quietly afterwards. 

On a punt the play was brought close to my point and I naturally noticed 
Evers. He must have had some telepathic message, for he looked to me the 
most miserable creature living. I saw his jaw set and knew there was a fierce 
struggle within. He looked at me appealingly. I did not know what to do, so 
did nothing. In his abstraction he let a play get by him, and with his mistake 
came the coach's call for me to replace him. Before I could get off my sweater 
the half was over, and the men came tired and fagged to a group. I was 
ordered to start the next half. Sharp and strong was the talk from the 
coaches, and we set our souls to win. 

Evers confirmed my telepathic suspicion by asking for the telegram. To 
my surprise he absently tore it into bits without reading it, before I could frame 
any words of sympathy. I was indeed puzzled. The game demanded my atten- 
tion, and I soon forgot the incident until afterwards. 

We were lucky in the second half, for we got away for a touchdown in the 
first few minutes and held the University during the rest of the game. 

That night I was very happy, and as I was prepared to curl up in bed 
Evers' strange actions recurred to me. Like a flash I saw it all. He had torn 
the telegram to bits without reading it. Then lie must have known its con- 
now? Had he sent it himself? But why? Yes, that was 
it. He knew this was my last year, and having the letter "M" assured for him- 
self arranged this little scheme so that I would get one. I appreciated his 
big-heartedness, still I had preferred to earn my reward without help. But I 
was sent in before he received the message, because of his indifferent work. How- 
ever, he might have played carelessly for that purpose. That expression of 
misery! Was his mother ill? He had made no mention of the fact. My re- 
flections were interrupted by his entrance into the room. 

He did not look in the best of spirits. He had something to say, and I 
waited until he broke the silence. 

"I sent that message to myself," he said at last. 

"I thought as much," I answered, "and I understand." 

This reply seemed to trouble him, and a wave of compassion seemed to 
sweep over him. I had no idea that Evers thought enough of me to risk his 
reputation in order that I might play. I was an imbecile to be so clumsy. 
Thanks for the sentiment implied in his actions rushed to my lips. 

"You don't understand at all," he said when I had finished. "I was think- 
ing of myself when I told that lie about shaving, not about you. And as for 
my big heart, as you call it, it's half yellow. I sent that message because I 
was afraid — afraid of Thorne." H. S. S., '14. 

A foap f ear proposal 

Your house is much too large for one 

But just the size for two ; 
Suppose you fix it up real cute. 

And I'll keep house for vou. 

An old bachelor they say you are, 

I know you are my fate ; 
I drop these lines to you, 

To see if you want me for your mate. 

I write to you tonight, 

For I know you lonesome are; 

Let us take our wedding tour next week 
Aboard a Pullman car. 

It is dangerous to go down life's hill 

In this kind of weather; 
Let me slip my hand in yours, 

And we'll walk down together. 


My house is just the size for one. 
But too small for two, vou see; 

You can live with someone else, 
But you cannot live with me. 

I know I am an old bachelor. 

And I always want to be ; 
What do I care for girls, 

Or a wife that will boss me? 

I have loved a lot of girls. 

But there will be no wedding bells for me; 
There is nothing in a wedding tour, 

Or a trip (with you) across the sea. 

It is dangerous to go down life's hill 
When the snow is on the ground; 

But if you had a mother-in-law with you 
She would certainly throw vou down.

There was trouble on the campus; 

There was blood in every eye ; 
A mighty heavy feeling 

Seemed to penetrate the sky. 
The challenge had been issued. 

The answer prompt returned ; 
All seemed ready for the battle, 

All compromises spurned. 

The Juniors, under "Cutey," 

And the Seniors, under "Chap," 
Decided they were ready 

To put up their final "scrap." 
The battle proved conclusive; 

Both teams were closely matched ; 
A scoreless game was ended, 

And very few men scratched. 

Then Gaddy's men of wisdom, 

And Red Patton's famous band 
Next occupied attention, 

And nobly took a stand. 
They played the game of football 

As taught by Hayes and Chad, 
And the way they used that pigskin 

Nearly drove the bleachers mad. 

But finally the tension 

Became too great to stand, 
And the Sophs began to weaken. 

While the Pattonites gained sand. 
The Freshmen pushed it over, 

The bleachers yelled delight ; 
Gaddy's men retired gracefully, 

And politely said "Good-night." 



The next, game was a beauty ; 

To play off a scoreless tie 
Every man was there and ready, 

Willing to do or die. 
When the game was nearly over, 

Both teams seemed in despair; 
The Juniors dropped a field goal, 

And a "shout" then filled the air. 

Thus stood the famous series ; 

The Sophs and Seniors out, 
Both Freshmen and the Juniors 

Rushed in battle with a shout. 
It was a royal contest, 

As back and forth they plowed, 
The mighty cheers arising 

From a noisy, loyal crowd. 

There was joy among the Freshmen 

As their classmates, inch by inch, 
Gained upon their adversaries, 

Though the latter did not flinch. 
Then something suddenly happened 

As a bolt from a clear sky: 
A man was seen to break away 

And toward the goal line fly. 

Somewhere there'll be recorded 

Gallant victories each class won ; 
Perhaps in the near future 

Other races will be run. 
But the Nineteen-Thirteen series 

Class football champion team 
Is without a single question 

The gallant Freshmen "seventeen."

Obeying that humane mandate : 

"To animals dumb be kind,' 
Some men adore a kitty 

And some a tiger blind. 

Sergt. Stanger informed us that lie spent the summer where the Budweiser 
flows and pretzels grow. 

P. B. Sturgis was caused considerable worry, because his schedule for this 
term contained "Math." Finally he went to Prof. Wright and asked him if lie 
couldn't take Geometry instead. 

Mr. Kidd (in Vets. Science Class) — Professor, what makes a cow lose her 

Dr. Ranck — Hunger. 

Mr. Kidd (after a moment of hesitation) — Will I lose mine? 

Cop (to Burkhalter, while applying the red brush in Columbus) — Here, 
what are you doing? 

Burkhalter — Why, here I am studying art. 

Not that we want to be personal at all, but we wonder why Burns touched 
his head while explaining the uses of wheels in a fire box. 

Break, Break, Break. 
Break, Break, Break, 

This unspeakable biscuit crust. 
And I would that my teeth could crumble 

This bread into dust ! 

O, well for the hungry man 

That his massive jaws are strong! 
O, well for the feeble boy 

That he bringeth a hammer along! 

And the tiresome meal goes on, 

And the starving ones get their fill ; 
But, oh, for a taste of a nice hot roll, 

And a steak that is tender still. 

Discussing whiskey at the staff table: 
Burns — It makes the body cold. 



Sergt. Stanger — Yes, und it makes you see snakes mit white pujammers on. 
Prof. Smith (in Chemistry Class) — Mr. Covington, what is the formula for 
milk ? 

Covington — H20 (B S) 4. 

Carroway (in History Class) — The book says that Fillmore was put to 
death — that he was burned in Effigy ; I thought that he died of old age. 

Prof. Mellen — Yes, if I can teach this Sophomore class to spell and punc- 
tuate I will die happy. 

Sophomore — We will learn it as quickly as possible, then, Professor. 
Aycock, 1). B. (translating French) — I am a fool. 
Prof. Bowen — That's right ; go ahead. 

The "M." 
With bumps and blows and a broken nose, 

Also a fractured limb ; 
He didn't complain but made his gain, 

And now he wears the "M." 
His in and drop were hard to stop, 

When he delivered them ; 
He pitched eleven and won eleven, 

And now he wears the "M." 
In either game he takes the same, 

Just grit, and brains, and vim ; 
With loud hurrahs we cheer and praise 

The wearers of the "M." 

Prof. Smith (in Chemistry) — Anything that has weight and occupies space 
is called matter. There are some things that occupy no space and have no 
weight : for instance, energy, light, and X-rays. 

Merkle — How about the X-ray skirts, professor? 

Prof. Smith — They belong to the latter class.
