Delta State Qrows 

An extensive building program has been carried out 
at Delta State Teachers College during the 1938-39 
session. 

The Doolittle Annex to the Hill Demonstration 
School was completed. This building houses the Music 
Department. A new Gymnasium, located on the site of 
the old one, has been erected. It is one of the finest 
plants in the state, containing a basketball court, locker 
and shower rooms, offices and class rooms for the Phys- 
ical Education Department, and rooms for various 
sports such as badminton and ping-pong. An Athletic 
Field House, which is used by the football team and golf 
club, was added. A Library was constructed just north 
of the Administration Building. Built of buff colored 
brick, it follows the same Renaissance style of archi- 
tecture as most of the other buildings on the campus. 

Thus the Delta State Teachers College campus pre- 
sents quite a different aspect from that of a year ago. 
The BROOM hopes to show all of these beautiful new 
buildings in its next issue.

LOUIS N. VARNA DO, President 
OF THE STUDENT BODY 



Having served his second year as President of the 
Student Body, Varnado has completed a record of un- 
precedented student leadership. He has succeeded in 
bringing about a more democratic Student Government, 
having this year instituted open forum meetings, in 
which students may constructively solve many of their 
problems

The Student Cabinet, chief governing body on the campus, is the organization through 
which students voice their opinions and needs. The function of the Cabinet is to administer 
student government and to plan recreational activities through cooperation with the admin- 
istration of the school. The 1938-39 Cabinet has made the student government more cross- 
sectional of the entire student body.

FOOTBALL 



D. S. T. C.'s athletic mentor, Alec 
Dickson, has done a splendid job of sports 
here. This is Coach's third year with us 
and we hope that he will be with us for 
many years to come. He is not only a 
builder of athletes, but he is also a build- 
er of friends. Coach is one of the most 
popular members of the Faculty. 

Louis Thornton, Statesman Captain, 
handled his duties well on the practice 
field as well as in the games. He is also 
a valuable member of our basketball and 
baseball squad. 





Cheerleaders . . . 

Charlie Morris, "Hootee" 
Thompson, Martha Bogue, 
'Shine" Hemphill, and Luke 
Perkins, as Delta's Cheer- 
leaders, have made D. S. T. 
C. one of the peppiest 
schools in the S. I. A. A., 
at all athletic events. We 
can say that Delta State's 
School Spirit has increased 
at least one hundred per 
cent, due to their efforts. 



FOOTBALL at DELTA STATE 



A bird's eye view of the Statesmen 
shows us Athletic Director A. D. Dick- 
son, Assistant Coach Howard Shook, 
Trainers Ray Ricks and Mac Day, and 
twenty-eight gridmen. Howard Shook, 
first assistant coach at Delta State, de- 
serves a great deal of praise for his work 
in helping Coach Dickson iron out de- 
fects in individual players. 

Even though the Statesmen were not so 
very succesful in the number of games 
won, it must be remembered that Delta 
State played the top-notchers of the S. I. 
A. A. The season opened with South- 
western Louisiana Institute of Lafayette, 
I a., where Delta trailed by a 19-0 score. 
The last game was with the S. I. A. A. 



champions, Memphis Teachers, which re- 
sulted in an 8-0 score. The two bright 
spots of the season were against Troy, 
Alabama Teachers on Homecoming Day, 
and Middle Tennessee Teachers on Arm- 
istice Day. 

The "Wrecking Crew," as the Freshmen 
were known, was composed of Wynn, 
McDonald, Senior, Magers, Boyd, and 
Walker. Though they are not in the 
above pictures, we are expecting them to 
be in the front row next year. 

Both trainers and twelve members of 
the squad will be lost by graduation, but 
prospects for the coming year seem 
brighter because of the remaining Juniors, 
Sophomores and the "Wrecking "Crew."

'38 -'39 SQUAD 



39 — Preston Shows, (Sr.), out- 
standing athlete of the sea- 
son, came up to the high- 
est expectations as Delta's 
most consistent ground 
gainer. Even a broken arm 
didn't slow him up much. 




24 — J. C. Wilson, (Sr.), whose regular posi- 
t.on was end, was really a general utility 
man, in that he did everything from call- 
ing signals to catching passes. 



A new angle on the football player 




30 — Cyril "Bub" White, (Sr.), was a good, 
consistent end, especially noted for his 
ability to keep up the "pepper." 

40— Jeff Bogue, (Sr.), Delta's 200 lb. left 
tackle, wrecked havoc with the opponents' 
line by hard drive and quick follow-up. 

23 — Gardner Sanders, (Sr.), was both center 
and guard for Delta. Despite his size, his 
spirit and uncanny ability to sift through 
the opponents made him an outstanding 
cog in Delta State's wheel of defense. 

34 — G. B. Edgir, (Sr.), was center or guird on 
offense, and line backer on defense. His 
job was to fill the holes on the defense 
and was accomplished in a most effective 
manner. 

28 — Rod Smith, (Sr.), was a utility linesman, 
by playing either guard or tackle, and will 
be greatly missed in Delta's next cam- 
paign. 

22— A. C. Williams, (Sr.), came to Delta 
State from Northwest Junior College. 
Though a regular for only one year, he 
has demonstrated his ability, as a quarter- 
back, to maneuver a football team. 

33 — Clifton Bishop, (Sr.), was the only man 
who played every minute of the past sea- 
son. His ability to kick and to back the 
line made him invaluable to the States- 
men. 

18 — James Goodman, (Sr.), was lean and 
lanky, and a good influence on the team. 

16 — Bill Botkin, (Sr.), joined the squad for 
the first time this year. To speed he added 
a clear, snappy diagnosis of plays and 
thus developed into a jam-up back. 






M37fi 



38 — Glen "Stumpy" Thompson, (Jr.), was Delta's outstanding end. He was held up most 
of the season by an injured leg, but we're expecting great things from him next year. 

17 — James McKelvy, (Jr.), was most promising of Delta's guards. He could penetrate any 
of the opponents' lines and throw them for losses. The Student Body should watch him 
next season. 

20 — Wayne "Snooky" Harris, (Jr.), was a back who could hit the line, reminding us of 
Chuck, (Charlie Thomas, '38). 

29 — Edward "Dopey" Glover, (Jr.), came into his own midway of the season, and continued 
to improve the remainder of the time. 

35 — Bill Ballard, (Jr.), was playing a wonderful game at right-end, when he was shifted to 
the tailback position. Here he made an even better man with his running and his easy- 
to-catch passes. 

12 — Manley Reeves, (Jr.), is better known as "Little Man." A harder to tackle ball-carrier 
wasn't known on the team until a shoulder injury kept him out of most of the last games. 

31 — "Sonny Boy" Gordon, (Jr.), showed great promise as a runner and blocker. He should 
be one of Delta's "Four Horsemen" when the Statesmen meet the best the S. I. A. A. 
has to offer. 

27 — Bob Leshe, (Jr.), was changed from end to guard. It was a pleasure to see Bob come 
cut of the hole and lead interference, knocking over all who tried to stop him. 

37 — Earl Buckley, (Jr.), joined the ranks after two years at S. J. C. His Grade A defense 
made him a problem for the opponents' line players. 

36 — Fred Poe, (Jr.), should have been twins. He was an excellent passer, and could catch 
them when it seemed impossible. 

26 — H. H. Rowell, (Jr.), was hard to stop when he lowered his red head and charged 
forward from his tackle position. 

42 — Roscoe Bryson, (Jr.) , was another 200 pound tackle. Coming from Hinds Junior 
College with two years' experience, he was a welcome addition to the squad. 

19 — Fred McMurry, (Jr.), has been developing into a splendid blocking back, and by adding 
his spirit to his love of the game, you have an asset to any team. 

25 — Charles "Hoss" Barbour, (Soph.), was the "southpaw" of the passing staff. Opponents 
couldn't tell whether he would pass or run. This with his signal calling will contribute 
greatly to next year's football assets. 

32 — Lawrence "Early" Shannon, (Soph.), was the only Soph. Linesman. His never-give- 
way guard work was of the best. 

21 — William "Art" Castle, (Soph.), was the third of the Soph Trio. His work as a line- 
backer commanded the respect of the opposing ball-carriers.

On the gym floor, Delta State presented a quintet second to none in the Tri-States. 
They hold the record of not suffering a defeat before the student body in two years. 

Although the team didn't advance so far in the S. I. A. A. and National Tournaments, 

the student body is very proud of them and will never forget their masterful performances. 

The Statesmen defeated such strong teams as Millsaps, Miss. College, Murray, and Troy. 




Delta State Teachers Col- 
lege has a varied program 
in Physical education in 
which everyone finds some 
activity. Some of these ac- 
tivities are: 

Soccer, Basketball, Aerial 
Darts, Badminton, Table 
Tennis, Shuffleboard, Soft- 
ball, Dancing, Tumbling, 
Etc. 

The aim of our Physical 
Education program is to 
teach people to play and to 
create a love for sports 
which will carry over in 
private and professional life.

The spring pageant pre- 
sented by the Physical Edu- 
cation Department has be- 
come one the most interest- 
ing events at Delta State 
Teachers College. 

Pandora, the pageant il- 
lustrated, was presented on 
May 19, 1938. The theme 
was taken from the myth, 
"Pandora," by M. L. Hut- 
chison in his book, Orpheus 
And His Lute. The pa- 
geant concerns itself with 
the Greek legend of crea- 
tion. 

Briefly, the story is as fol- 
lows: 

The gods of Greek leg- 
end had taken a great deal 
of interest in the promotion 
of mankind on the Earth. 

One day a mortal, Prome- 
theus, crept into the abode

of the gods and stole fire, 
which he carried back to 
earth. This so angered 
Zeus, chief of the gods, that 
in order to get revenge on 
mankind, he created Pan- 
dora, a beautiful woman, 
and gave her unbounded 
curiosity and a very ornate 
chest. Pandora met and was 
mar r i e d to Prometheus. 
They were quite happy un- 
til Pandora's curiosity got 
the upper hand of her, and 
she opened the chest. All 
the evils that Zeus could 
imagine poured forth to 
worry mankind eternally. 
Prometheus, who came just 
in time to see the chest of 
evils set free, despaired of 
life, but the spirit of Hope 
emerged from the chest and 
encouraged him to face his 
many trials and tribulations.

Shield 
WINNERS 

To receive a shield a girl must excel in 
a variety of sports. 100 points are al- 
lowed for each major All-Star team made. 
Minor sports carry 25 to 75 points. 
Membership in the W. A. A. Piroutte 
Club, and making the basketball offici- 
ating team give points. 1,000 points are 
required to make a shield. 

Nellie Wallace and Edna Kearney 
made shields this year. Due to the late 
announcement of Edna's wining the hon- 
or, her picture does not appear. 



Those girls who excel in a sport make the All-Star team. When two All-Star 
teams are made, a plate is awarded. The following girls are qualified for plates 
in 1938-39.
