LAKE VIEW, S. C. Lanier Society; Entered. ' 21- ' 22. Isabelle is hard to know, but when the barriers are once broken, what a change! She is a true friend, and will do anything in the world for you. She is a bit dignified from all outward appearances, but wh«n you know the real Isabelle she is " peppy, " jolly, and always ready for fun. We lose much when we lose her, but wherever she goes our best wishes are with her. MERYL BARNES, A.B. LODGE, S. C.

It would be useless to attempt to follow Meryl into the different phases of college life in which she took part. Perha,ps it is better to describe her in these words: " She loves everybody, and everybody loves her. " Because of her ardent love for " Math " we know that all of Meryl ' s thoughts are big ones. Anderson will miss her! And no doubt we will wish a hundred fold times for her, but we would not he selfish in asking for all the best things. We wish your whole life be one long bright summer day. Jenior CI ass WILLIE SUE BOLEMAN, A.B. TOWNVILLE, S. C. Y. W. C. A.; Y. W.

" To know her is to love her " we c?n say of Willie Sue. Prom the time she came to us four years ago she has always held a large place in our hearts. She is a good student, and a pal to everyone. Loveable, dependable, and attractive, we wish for " Bill " the greatest happiness and success in years to come. DOROTHY BROWN, A.B. ANDERSON, S. C. Entered ' 23- ' 24; Lanier Society. Dorothy Brown, better known as " Dot, " is one of those select few who can complete a college course in three years. Aside from her ability as a student, Dot has also made many friends. She is conscientious in her work and in her play. She believes in doing well anything she starts. She is a girl who always has room for one more friend without neglecting any of her o ' d ones. The fact that Dot has been with us only three years does not pre- vent her from being one of the truest members of our class. As she leaves her Alma Mater, we are sure she will meet with great success. Senior CI ass FRANCES BURGISS, A.13. SAT GREER, S. C.

She is very sympathetic and always present if we are in need. It is so much fun to be around her and it always puts us in a good state of mind for her to come around. Kitten has so very much " pep " and is one of the most energetic little creatures that has ever been to Anderson. She possesses the ability to do just whatever she undertakes and there could be nothing better than for her to be the great helper of a " doctor " in Greenville. CARRIE MARGARETTE COTHRAN, A.B. TONEY CREEK, S. C. Entered ' 22- ' 23; Lanier Society; Member Y. W. A., ' 22- ' 23 ) ' 2 3- ' 24, ' 24- " 25, ' 25- ' 26; Y. W. C. A..

Who ' d ever guess how much is bound up in such a scrap of humanity? Yes, Carrie is small in body, but not in mind, and when it comes to pep and spirit, she can ' t be beat. " We ' re awfully glad, too, that she has sucli a big heart, and believe it was given her for a special purpose, for Carrie is House President. And if she manages her own home (which we secretly believe she will soon have) as successfully as she has her dormitory, she ' ll be a won- der. And our hearty congratulations to the lucky man. Senior CI ass GLADYS CROMER, A.B. ANDERSON " , S. C. Entered ' 22- ' 23; Estherian Society; Spanish Club, ' 24- ' 25, ' 25- ' 26; Secretary and Treasurer Town Girls Club, ' 24- ' 25; Glee Club, ' 25- " 26. Competent is the word that describes Gladys. She is frank and openminded, considerate and generous. With her winning way and genial disposition she has made many friends both among the faculty and the students. She is a good student, and her ambition is spurring her on to a B. M. Degree, after she gets her A.B. Gladys is tal- ented in both piano and voice and we predict for her a great musical career. KATHRYN CANNON, A.B. SAT WESTMINSTER, S. C. Entered " 23- ' 24; Estherian Literary Society; Sans Souci, •23- ' 24. , 24- ' 25, ' 25- 26; T. W. C.

" Cat " is the kind of a girl that ' s hard to find — popular, sensible, and good looking. We admire her because she says what she thinks. When she thinks a thing she sticks to it. With all her frankness she is lovable and has made many friends among her classmates. Her popularity is not limited to college friends but extends into town and her winning smile has even captured the grocery man. She has proved her ability in college and we predict for her a wonderful success after she leaves us. Senior CI ass LORA PAULINE CHAPMAN, A.B. PELZER, S. C. Member of Lanier Literary Society; B. Y. P. U. ; Y. W. A.; Y. W. C. A.; French Club, ' 24- ' 25. Don ' t let your first impression of Lora be lasting ' . She may appear a bit indifferent, but after you Know her you find she is the opposite. She is loyal, sincere and true; the world gains where we lose. She is very studious and to see her studying psychology you would think she would be a philosopher. Yet the main philosophy with which she is concerned at present is love; we feel sure that what- ever she attempts to do she will be successful. So here ' s to her future. CORRIE MAE CHAPMAN, A.B. PELZER, S. C. Entered ' 22- ' 23; Lanier Society; B. Y. P. U. ; Y. W. A; Y. W. C. A.; Secretary B. Y. P U., First Term, ' 23- ' 24; Vice-President B. Y. P. U., Second Term, ' 23- ' 24; Secre- tary B.

" That ' s Corrie. But we ' re surely glad, she ' s a good sport because some- times the joke turns, and somebody else has fun. But if there is one thing she likes better than having fun, it is being in love. She ' s called the " King of Hearts " and that imp ies that she possesses many hearts, which she un- doubtedly does. But there is one which she doesn ' t have, and that one is her own. Sometimes she cries for it and sometimes she laughs lor the sheer delight of not having it. " We congratulate the fortunate man for he has cer- tainly chosen one who will be faithful, loyal, and true, for such she has proved to be to us. enior CI ass VENITA CUNNINGHAM, A.B. GREER, S. C. Entered ' 23- ' 24; Estherian Literary Society; President of International Relations Club, ' 24- " 25; Y. W. C. A. Cabinet, ' 24- ' 25; Orion Staff, 24- ' 25; Vice-President Junior Class, ' 24- ' 25; President Y. W. C. A , ' 25- ' 26. Venita is an easy-going and lovable sight; she is typical senior and possesses all the dignity of one, along with her humour and love for fun. She is always ready to enter into the different activities and do her part. Think of a girl who is loved by every one of her classmates, as well as all those who know her, and it is none other than our Venita. She proved her great ability to act when she played the part of Daddy-Long-Legs so wonderfully well in the play her junior year. ELIZABETH DAVIS, A.B. STARR, S. C.

A.; Anderson County Club; Secretary and Treasurer Anderson County Club, ' 25- ' 26; Treasurer of Lanier Literary Society, ' 25- ' 26. Elizabeth is a combination of many lovely traits, the kind that any girl would be proud of. Her attractiveness, unselfishness and dependability are some of the best. All who know " Liz " love her for her frankness and sincerity. Whether we remember especially her slick blacft hair, and voguish form dressed in the latest fashion, or whether we think of her as a star on the basketball court, we know that both memories are of one distinct and charming per- sonality and of a girl whom v e love.

EMMA FLOWERS, B.S. DARLINGTON, S. C. Estherian Literary Society; Theta Pi; Y. W. C. A.; Secre- tary Freshman Class, ' 22- ' 23. One day in ' 21 the September wind from that glorious old ' burg of Dovesville blew in a real Sub-Freshman. Emma is a typical blonde. When she is once known, you may depend on it — she is a good staunch friend. She is ready to do anything for her friends at any time. She never worries and takes almost everything good naturedly, even if it is a physics test. Being the only one in the class of ' 26 to receive a B.S. Degree we are all looking forward to getting an announcement saying she is putting her training into practice. She has a heart that is big, and a sunny smile that will never wear off. And besides her loveable disposition, she has the ability to do what she wants to do. Nelle is not lacking in athletic accomplishments. She, as forward on her class team, did much to make the seniors basketball champions. It is no wonder to us that she was voted the most competent girl in school. As Lanier Literary Society President, she has won the esteem and admiration of her society and all others with whom she has come in contact. With her sterling qualities, we are sure she will rock along to success in life! Jeruor CI ass MATTIE MAE HALLUMS, B.M. PICKENS, S. C. Entered ' 25- ' 26; Lanier Society. Quiet? Yes. Witty? Yes. Intellectual? Well, I guess. Mattie Mae came to us from G W. C. in ' 25, so not many have been fortunate enough to know her for she is re- served. But those who have been thrown into close con- tact with her declare her friendship to be a jewel of great value. Anderson claims her as one of her musical geniuses, and we are confident that she will rise to a high plane in the musical world. BERTHA LEOLA KELLY, A.B., B.O. PELZER, S. C.

It is almost impossible to find any suitable words which would sum up all of " Bert ' s " splendid characteristics. She has a merry disposition, a friendly word for all, and a fine character. We feel sure that in time she will become " a perfect woman, nobly planned, to warn, to comfort, and command, " oenior CI ass CORNEIXA MILAM, A.B. SANDY SPRINGS, S. C.

Blue eyes, with a mischievous flash to them, a mop of curly black hair that reminds you of a six-year-old, a sweet smile — that ' s Cornelia, of course. The honors listed above which show the active part she lias taken in every phase of college activities, are proof in themselves of the deeper side of her nature. With it all she is dependable and sincere. Sincerity like hers is rare and hard to find, like wild violets and other beautiful things. So, natural- ly, Cornelia, we all love you and wish you success. SARA ELIZABETH McGEE, A.B. ANDERSON, S. C. Lanier Literary Society; Progressive Educational Club, ■25- ' 26 ; Athletic Association; French Club, ' 24- ' 25; Town Girls ' Club Gentle, sweet, and jolly, that ' s Sara. She is loyal to her friends. We who know her love her most because she is what she is without pretense. She is one of the most conscientious girls in the class. With such a sweet dis- position, we are assured that she will meet success where- ever she goes. Because we love and appreciate her she has the sincere love and good wishes of all the class of ' 26.

Just sleep in tin- suite with her for a few nights, she ' ll soon tell you all her secrets, if you don ' t get frightened and run. Beware of walking and talking in your sleep! Eunice has a very sunny disposition and seldom sees the dark side of life, when you get the blues just go to her, and the first thing pleasant situation, she bobs up with some humorous expression that makes you laugh in spite of yourself. So when you get the blues just go to her, and the first thing you know you won ' t have them at all. FANNIBEL RUTLEDGE, A.B. SELMA, ALA. Entered ' 25- ' 26; Lanier Society; Y. W. C. A. Fannibel is rather reserved and one is not struck by her great capabilities until one knows her intimately. She is quiet around the campus, but she must talk quite a bit in the classroom judging from the way Miss Cowdrick show- ers her with A ' s. Although she came to us just this year, she has already become a great favorite of Miss Cronkhite ' s, (which is saying a lot) because of her musical talent. It is safe to predict for this girl success in a world where worth and genius count. ' : S39EOBMn I Senior CI ass JOHNNY MYRTLE SMITH, A.B. FORT MILL, S. C.

There ' s a girl in every college to whom everyone goes instinctively with every joy or sorrow. At Anderson she is Myrtle. Her honors will show you that the field of her activities is very broad. And the year 1925- 26 under her leadership as our Student Government President shall always be remembered as one of the host and most pro- gressive in the annals of Student Government at Anderson. Myrtle puts her whole soul into whatever she undertakes, so this renders us speechless to predict her future. " Long may we seek her likeness, but in vain. Nature formed but one such girl and broke the dye in the moulding. " RUTH TODD, A.B. EARKSDALE, S. C. Entered ' 21- ' 22; Estherian Literary Society; Athletic Asso- ciation; Y. W. C.

It took us quits a while to know this tall and fascinating girl; but when she is once known you may depend upon it she is a good staunch friend. Ruth never has a care or worry. She attends to her own business and " lets the rest of the world go by. " She is very fond of athletics which may account for her slenderness, and we know it accounts for the Block " A " which she wears. We often wonder what Ruth will do when she goes out into the wide, wide world. Senior Class MARTHA GERALDINE TRAMMELL, A.B. ANDERSON, S. C. Entered ' 22- ' 23; Lanier Society; Athletic Association, Glee Club, ' 24- ' 25; Progressive Educational Club, ' 25- 26; Pres- ident of Town Girls ' Club, ' 25- ' 26. Gerald in e is one of the most industrious girls of our class. In fact, it seems that she really likes to work but " Gerry " works and plays equally as well. Not only does she play for a good time, but she plays the violin almost divinely and the piano just as well for that matter. When we pause to think, we wonder why " Gerry " chose A.B. for her goal, but this is just another proof of her efficiency and her ability to do so many things well. It would cer- tainly be hard to find a truer friend, a sweeter companion, or a more diligent student than " Gerry. " She answers almost every requirement that we could ask for an ideal type of young womanhood. HARRIETTE JOSEPHINE WILKINS, A.B. 9 K 2 GAFFNEY, S. C.

A whirl of business air, a dash of pep, and a whiff of love — yes, that ' s Harriette. She is always in a hurry, whether for the Annual or for Ross — you never can tell. If you are looking for capability then Harriette holds the stage. She makes grand marks and is ready to join all fun. Sororian Class Day Play Prologue Cans ' t thou not linger here, Oh, fleeting time ! The maiden sleeps, a sleep sublime. And in her dreams the memories dear Of happy days still linger near. The tasks accomplished, friendships made, The hopes, the joys, the toil repaid. The wondrous dream, the pleasant dream of life That bore her on in gladness, yet in strife. So sweet she lay and slumbered ' til there came A vision of a path to love and fame ; She struggles upward, onward, ever true, To the ideals, Alma Mater, That she learned from you. 35 Sororian ACT i Characters — Members of the Class of ' 26 Time— 1922-1926 (Class Day 1926) Place — Anderson College SCENE I Scene is a bedroom in Anderson College. It is comfortable, and artistically furnished. As the curtains rise, Fannibel, a Senior, enters with cap and gown on arm. Fannibel (placing gown on chair) : I can hardly realize that class day is here. (Sits on bed). For four long years I have dreamed of this class day. And now that it is here I find myself wishing that it were not. (Sighs) I must rest these few minutes before the exer- cises begin. (Falls asleep and has broken dreams oi the events of h r four college years.) (Frances and Cornelia, having just arrived as Freshmen, enter, throwing baggage on floor and removing hats and wraps). Cornelia: Frances, I want to go home. Why did I ever leave home to come to college? I am going to send for papa to come alter me. (Cries). Frances (trying to comfort her): O, don ' t cry, I am sure we shall like it here. Tiie room is pretty and the girls we meet are very nice to us. Look at the welcome we have from the Y. W. C. A., the Seniors and the Estherians! (Clock alarms). Cornelia: " What is that bell for? Frances: I am sure I don ' t know. We hnd better find out. I am certain I don ' t want to be late to anything. I hear they are very strict about that. Cornelia: Look, it ' s the clock! (They laugh, but soon begin crying again). Green isn ' t our name! (Estherian and Lanier enter with colors fly- ing). Estherian : We are glad you girls came to Anderson. Now we want you to join our so- ciety. These are the colors you must join! Lamer: Sne wants you, but I do, too. Let me tell you there are the colors for you! Estherian: Well, we aren ' t ging to fuss about it. We will have to let you girls decide. Lanier: Let ' s go to dinner, I am as hungry as a bear! (Go off with arms locked.) (Four rats enter and hide behind chairs. Two Sophs enter carrying initiation paraphernalia.) First Soph : Come out from behind those chairs, rats! (Creep out.)

Second Soph: Now, I ' ll massage your face to be kind to you ( rubs face with old Dutch.) Now, a little rouge and lipstick for the finishing touch (uses smoot.) First Soph (t akes off blindfold and hands Fresh a mirror) : Now you are a fit specimen for the beauty contest. Get you to bed, for you ' ll need strength on tomorrow! (Fresh exit.) Sophs: Scared rats! (exit laughing. ) (Enter Carrie, Corrie Mae and Elizabeth in basketball suits. ) Carrie: We missed the cup by one point. Just wait until next year, we ' ll show them how- to play basketball! Corrie Mae: " Stella " knows how to coach. I am glad that she is our sponsor. Elizabeth: Wasn ' t the game exciting, though? Corrie Mae: I ' ll bet that Turkey dinners will be just about as exciting — um — um (exit singing) — " Five more weeks till vacation. Then we ' ll go to the station. Back to civilization, The train will carry us there. " (Emma, Willie Sue, Bertha, and Nelle enter dressed in evening dresses, sit on table and eat candy. ) Bertha: - Who would have thought a recep- tion could be so much fun? Jack was so good looking. Willie Sue: Did you meet a Mr. Turner? Talk about falling! He goes to Furman and is the most handsome man at that reception! Emma: Surely you didn ' t see Clarence! Bertha: Nor my Jack. Nelle: Gee! but those boys will have a time getting that cotton off their suits. I am sorry for the feilow that has to gat it off in time to wear the suit tomorrow. Bertha: I hear the house president coming. We had better get a wiggle on or we will get in trouble. Good night. (Exit all.) (Enter Meryl, " Cat " and Lora.) Lora: I wish I had studied during Christ- mas holidays. These exams will run me crazy. Meryl: O, exams, where is thy sting! " Cat: " I had the best time Christmas going to parties and eating plum pudding. Lora: Cut that out! It is hard enough to study when you have nothing to tempt you. (All study — examghost comes in and chases them off the stage as they study.) Eunice (enters with arms full of clothes and throws them in trunk): Another semester gone and holidays here again. Little do I care how these clothes get home, just since th y get there. Give me summer and the good old times and I ' ll be satisfied even if I do almost melt. (Shoves trunk and goes off humming.) SCENE II (Enter Frances, Venita, and Bertha.) Fiances: Back again, eh? Bertha: Well, I am glad I am not a rat. I caught it last year, and some poor rat is going to get the same this year. Venita: I said last year I wouldn ' t touch a rat, but I have changed my mind. When do we start ? Bertha: That ' s what this meeting is about. When do we start and what do we do? Frances: All I want to know is when do we start and who is my rat companion ? I can find plenty for her to do, such as: relieving me ■of a, little work, saying pretty speeches for the whole school, and eating nice juicy onions. Bertha: I have a list of things I want the class to do. I ' ll send a rat to get the list (goes to door.) Come here, you green young rat! Go to room 21S West and tell the girl there to send me the tablet on the table. Make it snappy or you might be sorry. By the way, get the first six Freshmen you meet and come to the gym. Venita: Yes, we will be there to receive you with all grace. (Go off.) (Nelle, Kitten, Elizabeth. Bertha, Willie Sue enter followed by Hallowe ' en Witch. The girls huddle together.) Witch: Will the Sophs please come forward? (Girls are afraid to move.) Nellie (coming forward and receiving card, reads): " Little Soph, listen here, I want you for my sister dear. Madge! " Oh, isn ' t that perfectly love- ly of Madge to ask me to be her sister? I ' m so happy I hardly know what to do. Witch : Come on, you other girls, and get your mail. Frances: Caroline has asked me to be hers. Elizabeth: And Grace has asked me. Bertha: Aren ' t the Seniors just the sweetest things in the world? Yes, I love every one of them. (Lock arms and leave stage.) (Enter Eunice, Cornelia, Eliz, and other Sophs and Seniors.) Cornelia: Gee! We surely had a lonely time 36 Sororian at the show. I ' ll declare I have been puzzling over that invitation ever since I got it. You see when I saw that the " college limousine " would be waiting for us, I couldn ' t make out what that limousine was since I knew the col- lege didn ' t have one. Eliz. : You boob, I knew all the time that these Seniors meant the street car. Eunice : You Seniors are too good to us. Look at that lovely Christmas tree and all those mysterious packages! " Wonder what is in them? Senior: Oh, you ' ll find out. Here they come, here ' s a big one for you. Cornelia Milam, Car- oline Par n ell. My here comes a package for each Senior, too. There is one more thing that Santa gives to each of you. " A wish for the merriest Christmas and the happiest New Year. " (They all leave stage calling Merry Christmas to each other.) (Enter Gladys with basket of daisies — enter Carrie, Cornelia, Bertha, Meryl and Elizabeth carrying a partially complete daisy chain.) Carrie: Whew! My hands are blistered. Next time I go to pick daisies I won ' t pick, I ' ll cut. Bertha: Don ' t mention blistered hands, mine feel like I " donna " what. However, let us forget hands for the time being and get this daisy chain finished. It will be time to don those usual white dresses, and we won ' t have this chain finished. Gladys: All these flowers remind me of the Carnival. I prissed around all night trying to sell all of my flowers. " Where there is a will there is a way. " I surely had the will, and I managed to sell them all, too. Carrie: The fortune teller made money that night. I think girls and boys alike must have been anxious to know their future that night. Meryl : Don ' t forget the vaudeville ! Mattie Moore and I were Indians. If we were not peaches I ' ll give it up. Elizabeth: And why was it some girls were so anxious to go through the crazy house more than once? Bertha: In the end we had a pretty good sum of money to our credit. Cornelia: Girls, we surely were lucky to get Miss Hall for our sponsor this year. She has helped us through thick and thin. How could we have done without her! Gladys: We never could have done without her! Elizabeth: Gee! My hands hurt! They feel almost as bad as my feet did October Day, when we " hoboed " to High Shoals. Bertha: Well, we are through with the chain. Now, let ' s practice our song to the Seniors. (Pick up chain and go off singing): " Oh, Senior class, we love you so. Though from our midst you soon will go. We ' ll not forget each dear smiling face ; There ' s no one else can take your place. We ' ll feel so lost without your aid, Memories of you will never fade. You ' ll always hold the strings of our hearts For we love you the best of all. " SCENE IH (Enter Nelle and Ruth.) Nelle: Ruth, how do you feel being an upper classman? Ruth: Why I feel so big until those Fresh- men to rne look like grammar school kids more than they do college girls. And another thing, the excitement of looking for the crook until eleven o ' clock. Last night " Cat " and I found a hen nest while we were crook hunting. Nelle: What did you do with the find? Ruth: I wouldn ' t ask you that. Louise (entering all excited) : Girls, keep quiet! We ' ve found the crook! You get the Juniors told, I ' ll get Miss Hall and it will be a hot time for the Seniors at dinner tonight. Ruth: We were just talking about the crook! Where did you find it? Louise: In the boiler room. (Go off skipping and singing) : " Once there was a Senior class who had a crook " — but they haven ' t it now! (Enter Venita, dressed as man, with " Cat. " ) Venita: Do I look like " Jervis " " Cat? " Come here and help me get this love making right. Miss Hall got peeved last time, but she will be worse than that if we don ' t do it right to- night. " Cat: " Yes, and it is tomorrow night that we jolly Juniors present the famous " Daddy Long Legs. " (They act final scene in play.) (Enter " Kitten, " Venita carrying lamp trim.) Kitten: How do you like this for a work of Venita: " Kitten, " that is beautiful Where is the rest of the bunch? It is high time these flowers were finished. (Enter Emma and Corrie Mae.) Emma: Here at last, any work for us enita: I should say so. All of you get busy. How do you think the hall will look decorated like this picture? Corrie Mae: I think that is just darling. I like the steps with those arches. Thev have always looked so bare at a reception. " Kitten: " We are going to have a May pole dance on the lawn and crown Margaret Wy- cliff, Senior president, queen. What are we going to have to eat? Venita: Lots of nice things. The shifters and girls who serve are going to be dressed in daisy dresses. There goes the room bell. Come back any spare minute you have and make some more flowers. SCENE IV (Scene changes to Mother Goose Land. Seniors enter dressed as Mother Goose characters.) Mother Goose: Children, I think we should select seme object that one of us particularly loves as an emblem. Something to stand for all of the things I want us to have — loyalty, good sportsmanship, generosity, and love. Can any one suggest anything? Polly: How would my kettle do? Humpty Dumpty: No, sir, that ' s too smooty. What about my egg? Jack Horner: That would break. I think a plum would be nice. Miss Muffit: A plum is too little, let ' s let it be a bone of curds and whey. Peter Piper ' s Son: Why " not have a good old pig? Jack: It would run away, you goose, a pail would be fine, though. Gill: Yes, it catches everything. The Queen of Hearts: Don ' t you think we would enjoy tarts more? King Cole: Queen, we ' d eat your delicious tarts up at once— but there ' s no friend like a pipe. Why not use that? Mother Goose : You see none of these will do. Can ' t some one think of something better? Bo-Peep: Oh, Mother Goose, I know, let ' s have my crook. Mother Goose: The very thing! Because, you see, shepherds use them to keep their sheep together as it signifies kindness and good fel- lowship, and all of the things we want. All: The very thing! Mother Goose: Now we must go and hide it in the very safest place we can think of. There are some naughty spirits called Juniors who will want it for themselves and try and try their very hardest to find it and take it away from us. So we must be very careful and if they ever do find it we won ' t stop look- ing a minute until we have it back again. Crooked Man: Come on, let ' s go. All: Three cheers for the crook. (Exit) (Enter Mother Goose and children singing Senior song.) Mother Goose: Children, what do you want to do most? Old Mother Hubbard: Go to college. Queen of Hearts: Me, too. King of Hearts: Ditto! Mother Goose: What college do you want to go to? All : Anderson — you bet ! Mother Goose: Well, it ' s nice you all want 37 to go to the same place, and to tell the truth I know you could never have found a better place. Well, suppose you were Seniors at An- derson. What would you particularly want to do during- that year? Polly Put the Kettle On: I had rather get out the annual than anything else. I think it would be the most fun. Mother Goose: Yes, Anderson ' s annual, the Sororian, is a very nice book of memories. Bo-Peep : Mother Goose, I believe I would enjoy the time when all the Seniors take their table. You know the night when ghosts and goblins walk. Cat and the Fiddle: And then it wouldn ' t be long before basketball. I would like to be a number of the Senior team, for I know we would win the cup from those Juniors, who are so anxious to keep it. Crooked Man: Remember when we mocked the faculty in high school. Gee! but I ' d like to have a " mock faculty " to greet the real faculty on April Fools ' night. SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY (Mother Goose puts all the children to sleep to dream of the future.) (Draw curtain.) (Mother Goose wakes up the children. Ten years elapse in their dreams.) C. Cannon : Oh, I had the queerest dream, why, I thought I was in Greenland, and guess what I was doing? All: Oh, Mother, what? Please hurry. M. G. " Cat: " I thought I was canning " fish, now wasn ' t that the most peculiar thing you ever heard? I. Arnett: I had a dream, too, but I can ' t think just how everything was now. I know I was on the race track, riding the most beauti- ful horse I ever saw. Oh, my shoulders hurt I was Ieaning over so far. M. Barnes: You don ' t know anything about queer dreams. I thought I was in some great conservatory working with the hypothesis that there is another planet, and do you know I found it. F. Burgiss: All that does sound far fetched, but I can tell one better than that. Why, little me was the champion disc thrower. I won the first place in Paris. (Struts around.) W. Boleman : I could see myself so plain, there in the White House, and not as a visitor either. What do you think I was doing? The first woman president of the United States. G. Cromer: And, Mother, you know how hard it is for me to get the right time in music? Why I had no trouble at all there before that big crowd. I was a famous opera singer. D. Brown : Aeroplanes! I never saw so many in my life, almost as thick as flies; I could hardly give the exhibition. It was the most fun, turning over and over, then drop al- most to the ground. I am still dizzy. V. Cunningham: I was the most popular doc- tor in the whole city of New York. Just one little pill a day, no more cooking, etc. I was a rich woman, because I was successful in put- ting enough food value in a pill to do the same good that we get from three meals. Li. Chapman: I was Madame Fashion. I designed gowns for the wealthy women of the world, the president of the United States. Wil- lie Sue Boleman came to have her spring outfit designed. C. Cothran: I was in the Senate pleading for the Divorce Law, as I had had so much trouble getting my last two. I was doing all I could to get it through. E. Davis: Good night, I am still going over Mother Goose: Then there is a play the Seniors usually give. How would you like to give " Alice Sit by the Fire? " Mary Had a Little Lamb: And I ' ll go with you and be Alice. What about privileges, ■ don ' t Seniors have some? Baker: Yes, they do, but even then they have a few strings tied to those privileges. Tom Tucker: The Junior-Senior reception is a bright light in Seniors ' lines, too. I know there is lots of fun among those gaily dressed girls and all the handsome boys who come. Mother Goose : Well, all those things would make a wonderful Senior year, of course, there are lots of funny things that happen during the year to fill in the gaps, like icing on a cake. How many of you would like to know what you will do after vou finish Anderson? All: All of us! Mother Goose: You shall know. (Waves magic wand and puts them all to sleep.) ACT II — I thought I was at the world ' s diving con- test and at the last minute I tried and turned over ten times before I hit the water. That is some record don ' t you think? N. Eskew: Of all things, would you think; of me as a preacher — that ' s just what I dreamed I was doing. C. Chapman: Now look old C. M. Chapman over. I was the assistant to Dean Fox at Har- vard University. Don ' t you know things caift be true in dreams? E. Rice : I knew all the time I could dis- cover something about spiritualism, and I did in my sleep. I talked to the spirits — I even talked to George Washington, Ty Cobb, and lots of the people that have been dead long years. R. Todd : I know why I dreamed such a funny dream. Ever since I found that I had a short life line I have been almost worried to death, and in my dream I could see into the future. All I had to do was take the hand and everything was there before my eyes. I was telling lots of people about their future. B. Kelly: I thought all the women had got- ten bald-headed, and I discovered a great fluid that made hair grow on any bald head. I made a fortune, and was still raking in the dough. M. M. Hallam : I put Mr. Zeigfield out of business. I had the most noted follies in ?iie world, wonderful figures, no need of costumes. E. Flowers: Anderson College was at its height in my dream. All that any one had ever thought that she would become was fulfilled. I was the president of my dear old Alma Mater. M. Smith: I thought after all my struggling that I lived in Paris in the Latin quarters. There I was smoking, drinking, playing cards and going to the very dogs. Sara McGee: Oh, how glad it is only a dream after mine was the worst one yet. I thought I was in prison in Atlanta Federal prison for spreading some outlandish talk. I have to pinch myself to be sure that it was only a dream. Oh, how glad I am. Why, I was edi- tor of the New York Times, and you, Fannie Bell, were the social editor. We were making the paper the best in the world. C. Milam: I was only a bell hop in the hotel of Sandy Springs, but the suit was stunning, I did look rather chic in it. Mother Goose: Oh, aren ' t we all glad that it is all a horrible dream — come let ' s go have some fun after those nightmares. Senior wakes up and finds it all a dream and that it is time for class day exercises. ACT 1 1 1 CLASS DAY AT ANDERSON COLLEGE 3« Sororian Legend oi the Crook This is the town of Anderson. This is the college built in the town of Anderson. These are the girls of the Senior class, who went to the college built in the town of Anderson. This is the crook that belongs to the girls, who went to the college, built in the town of Ander- son. This is the story of the crook that belongs to the girls of the Senior class, who went to the college, built in the town of Anderson. Once upon a time, in Mother Goose Land, long, long ago, Mother Goose called all of her children together and she told them she wanted something for an emblem, something they could keep, that would stand for loyalty, comradeship, generosity, fun and all the nice things that they could think of; and she wanted them to suggest something. Polly thought of the kettle, but that would not do; Jack Horner suggested a plum, but that would not do; Miss Muffet wanted it to be a tuffet; Jack Spratt spoke of some fat, but none of these seemed right. Finally, little Bo Peep thought of her crook and Mother Goose said that was the very thing because shepherds use them to keep their sheep together, and that it would signify kindness, good fellowship, and all the things they wanted. So she told them they must hide one away to keep for their very own, and if any one ever found it and took it away from them, not to rest a minute until they had it again and put it back in a better place. Therefore, the children of Mother Goose will always try to keep their crook. 39 Sororian g 2 6 y. c H 3 c 40 Sororian 9 2 6 UVniors, Jn. " n.ioes, Jo y Jtuaiors, now does your gat-cleTi crow?

There will be a meeting of the Executive Council — June and " Dot " Cronkhite (on the street car coming from town. Three old ladies en- ter). Dorothy: " June, why don ' t you get up and let one of those ladies sit down? " June: " Huh! Why don ' t you get up and let them all sit down? " I wish I was an icicle, Hanging on a shack, And if my rival chanced to pass, I ' d drop right down her back. Mis s Cowdrick dreamed she was the " Faerie Queen " and went to the dentist and got her a crown. A woman marries a doctor to get doctored for nothing — A woman marries a railroad man to ride for nothing — But a woman marries a preacher to be good- for-nothing. If a woman has a double chin, how does she know which one to scratch? Sororian i g 2 6 Wanted — A pair of " bell-top " pants. Prof. Holliday. Mr. Johnson (to class) : " You girls have a great many more advantages than I had when I went to college ; for instance, you have much better teachers.

" Emma Flowers and Nellie Clare Woodle were discussing some of the teachers at An- derson College. Nellie Clare said, " Miss Fox is old, isn ' t she? " " Ys, " answered Emma, " they say she taught Caesar. " Miss Crawford told Miss Fay that she al- ways had colds in her head. " Yes, " replied Miss Fay, " you always have them in the weakest spots. " Kiss me cute, Kiss me cunning, Kiss me quick For daddy ' s coming. You sit apart; the dance goes on; You ' ve been betrayed by one you trusted. You cannot dance like a gentleman When your suspender ' s busted. " Fair one, will you thrill my epidermis, by allowing me to embrace your tender form for the next wiggle?

" Margaret White: " My mother fed me on canned milk and I ' m condensed. " Virginia Caldwell came in the college office and purchased a Freshman-Sophomore recep- tion invitation. A few minutes later Vir- ginia came rushing back and told Nelle Es- kew that she wanted an invitation with " Freshman Class " in the corner and not " Sophomore.
