Humor Ads Foreword It has been our purpose in publishing the " 1923 Yearling " to give a complete and accurate history of our school life, to recall to mind the familiar faces and scenes which we have grown accustomed to, and to perpetuate in our memories the spirit and ideals of an institution, which during its fourteen years of existence has ever been the pride of the old " Won- der State. " We have made an earnest effort to make this book worthy of its title, and as good as any previous publication. If when the days have lengthened into years, this book should play some active part in the happy memories of the good old gone-by days at S. A. S. we shall feel sufficiently awarded for our ef- forts, and the " 1923 Yearling " will have fulfilled its purpose.

Snapshot Editors Genevieve Mason j Mildred Whitaker 1 | - -- Calendar Editors Dorothy Roleson j Loran Robinson Joke Editor Grace Love — - Social Editor Dedication To the Board of Trustees we dedi- cate the 1923 Yearling. By this dedication we are expressing our ap- preciation to a group of men who are not surpassed in the State in devoted service to a public duty. Highly successful in their own af- fairs, they are handling the affairs of the institution in the same capa- ble manner. It is our sincerest de- sire that we shall be able to evidence a greater appreciation to them by rendering a useful service to our State. MR. R. E. L. WILSON Member of the Board of Trustees Nine Mr. V. C. Kays In justice firm, in judgment clear, a champion of right. Deep tooted in conviction, not less open to the light; Earnest, thoughtful, kindly, true, to duty consecrate; Never halting, manhood first, in honors small or great. Tribute to thee, our President. That the Board of Trustees should have chosen Mr. V. C. Kays as the first President of this school is most fortunate. There are few men who possess both the power of vision and the ability of execution, yet Mr. Kays has both of these qualities. He has a clear conception of the need of the State for an institution to develop the boys and girls along agricultural lines, and just what the institution should be to fill this need. He has shown superior ability in promoting plans whereby the institution is filling the need for which it was established. Often when the outlook for the successful accomplishment of these plans was discouraging, he took on renewed courage and determination, and attacked the problem from a new angle and with still greater energy. The success that the institution has attained is due in a large degree to Mr. Kays ' untiring and unselfish efforts. He is a close student of public affairs and a progressive educator. He has a deep devotion to the highest interest of the students and the larger service of the State ; both of which have enshrined him in the hearts of all. Ten V. C. KAYS, M. S. A., President Eleven 5. A. S. History ' ' The present still is echo of the past. Of both the future will an echo be. " Lest we forget the sources of our institution and some historical evi- dences that still cling about it like ivy to some old monastery, let us here set down a few of the things that should be indelibly written upon the tablets of memory. In 1908 we see a few patriotic members of the Farmers ' Union real- izing the lack of opportunity of the boys and girls of the state of Arkansas to secure an education suitable to their needs and the necessity of up-build- ing the state by providing better education facilities for the home builders and home makers. They passed a resolution requesting the Legislature to establish four District Agricultural Schools. Hon. Geo. W. Donaghey, then candidate for governor, recommended the establishment of these institutions. The Legislature of 1909 responded by passing Act 100, providing for these institutions to be located. The people of Craighead County gave 200 acres of land and raised $40,000 by subscription at the urgent solicitation of a few patriotic citizens. So eager were the members of the Board of the First District to begin serving the people, that they opened school in the fall of 1910 in the second story of a business house in Jonesboro, and the girls ' dormi- tory was one of the private residences on Main street, and the boys ' , the old Martin home on Witt street. In 1911 we see the school launched upon a stormy political career. After many set-backs and under divine circumstance school was opened in its present location with the Main Building and two Dormitories as the only buildings of permanence. Day by day through the loyalty and sac- rifice of friends the institution increased its capacity for service. When the appropriations were cut, the members of the Board, banks of the District and friends endorsed paper to keep the wolf from the door. Teachers, imbued with the idea of service and loyalty, served without salaries for months, while politicians preyed upon it like vultures. The service of these loyal citizens lives and will continue to bless the people of this state long after the dying cry of derision or the lamentations of the grafters. Twelve Truly our school is a living, serving example of right triumphing over wrong and of the ever watchful eye behind the scatfold keeping watch over its own. Memory shows ever interwoven in the history of our school the serv- ice of our beloved President, Mr. Kays — coming to this institution in his twenties, fired with the ambition to carry out an educational theory and ideal ; he has labored night and day always ready to put a shoulder to the wheal of progress, whether at his desk or in the field, doing a man ' s work wherever needed. His personal sacrifices and great ability makes him head the list in the service of this institution. Early memory shows us the gentle, kindly sympathetic and intellectual personality of our former Registrar, Mr. D. T. Rogers, who after many years of service passed to his reward. While his place has been filled by our worthy Mr. Whitsitt, many are the hearts left with an ache in his passing, for he was the most universally loved man, not only in our school, but in the county. We see earnest students organizing societies and clubs to further their efforts. There are the Erosophian and Philocadian Literary Societies, the Whitsitt Debating Club, the Hoof and Horn Club, the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. ' s and others. Memory lingers yet while we recall many great frays in which the Eros and Philos. battle in defense of the Winged Victory. Memory points out our great Dairy Barn and Herd, made possible through the endowment of our generous Board of Directors. As we rush on we see many happy Home-coming Days. Memory reveals the Athletic trophy case. Cheering crowds- — Aggie ever victorious. There are the laurels of many victories. Another trophy case! Many more contests — Aggie is ever winner in Stock-Judging Contests. A shadow falls — Memory passes quickly to the World War. Aggie responds to the call of Democracy and suffering humanity. The campus is covered with khaki clad boys. Her service flag is covered with stars, and some of these gold. Memory brightens and the social life is revealed. We see many happy gatherings, Hallowe ' en parties, Receptions, Carnivals and gaiety scattered like sunshine throughout the years. In 1922 the Mechanical Engineering Building is completed. The ful- fillment of a dream. In the same year the Y. M. C. A. is completed, a fine building with its spacious dining hall. Thirteen Memory does not overlook the " Aggie Yowler, " an ancestor of the present " Aggie Herald " and the " Yearling " the annual publication, all factors in the history of the institution. We see Aggie in all its glory of achievement. Has the dream of its founders been realized? Is it the fulfilment of the vision of service? The answer lies in you and me, in the Alumni. And higher waves the Red and Black! And the vision of our President blesses us ! And the wisdom of our Faculty inspires us ! And we the inheritors of unfilled renown Rise from their thrones built beyond mortal thought Far in the unapparent ! Move forward then with steady pace To glories yet to be : New joy shines in a thousand eyes That now are fixed on thee. A thousand hearts beat with hope With ne ' er a thought of fear While all thy sons rise up and greet The future with a cheer. Fourteen BooK I School Jfflain putlbtng (Strte ' Bormttorp Sixteen Eighteen Anticipations " Who can tell what the future will bring forth? " We can; or, at least, in part. As we look in to the future and see the long procession of good things that is moving steadily toward Aggie, we rejoice for we realize that our splendid school is to be still better in time to come. First and nearest among these good things is the new gymnasium which will be constructed at a cost of approximately $15,000. It will have three stories and will contain a swimming pool, track for indoor meets, lockers, shower baths, and all the latest modern equipment. The rooms that will be in the upper stories will be used as class rooms for those desiring physical education. A part of this new building will also be given over to the Music Department. We next see some radical changes in the main building. The study hall will be moved to the present gym where we will have plenty of room for the pupils and the library. A number of new books will be added to our present supply and a librarian will be employed so that the books may al- ways be in place — and the students may find what they want when they want it. The study hall will be made into class rooms with the exception that part next to the girls ' dressing-room which will be given over to the Y. W. C. A. for a ladies ' rest-room. We are going to have some much-needed new equipment next year. All the class rooms are to have desk chairs; the art department will pur- chase some more prints and paintings; the laboratories will be supplied with all the apparatus they need ; and, we hope, a grand piano, stage fur- nishings, and one or two beautiful paintings. Looking further into the future we see a new dormitory for the girls. It will have a gymnasium and a teacher who will be hired especially to coach the girls in physical training. Of course, all the rooms will be strictly up-to-date and most home-like. All the women ' s work will be moved into the building when it is finished, thus making things more convenient for all concerned. Next year we will have a beautiful campus. A large amount of money has been raised by the business men of this district for this purpose. We are going to have a landscape gardener and a hot-house so that those in- terested in landscape gardening can take that work. Of course, these things will incidentally beautify the school. We hope there will be numer- ous rustic benches over the campus and we anticipate a beautiful fountain just in front of the main building. We are expecting to have the largest student body in the history of the school enrolled next fall. We expect fully 750. We will have about 500 teachers at the Rural Teachers ' Training Course this year and this number should grow next year. Last, but by no means the least in importance, we are going to have a live Alumni Association which will boost Aggie in the coming years and lend all their aid toward making the S. A. S. at Jonesboro THE School of the State. Twenty-three MISS EDITH BARNHART. MRS. D. T. ROGERS, B. A B. S.. B. A.

Forty-three Senior Class Appreciation After four years we have reached the much-looked-for goal. It is true that the reaching of it has not been without some difficulty, but there were ever those who were willing to lend a helping hand and give encour- aging words. It is now with happiness that we are at our graduation day, but before we leave Aggie we feel that it is befitting that we express our appreciation to those who have been a source of help and encour- agement. To our parents first we express our gratitude. We know that their part has cost sacrifice, but we sincerely hope that we can repay them in love and achieving successes which will give them much happiness. To the faculty members we give grateful thanks for the splendid in- struction and kindly and helpful influence which they have so unselfishly rendered. Especially do we wish to thank Mr. Kays for the splendid talks he has given us, and the deep interest manifested in us at all times. To all who have in anyway helped us through the four years do we express our appreciation. We trust that the school may have just cause to be proud of us in the years to come, and it will ever be our pleasure to do all we can to make of it one of the greatest institutions in Arkansas. Forty-four Farewell Address Members of the Senior Class and Fellow Students: The period for our graduation from the State Agricultural School, being not far distant, and the time actually arrived when we must think of departing from our school, we must now prepare to say farewell. It appears proper to express our appreciation to our teachers and to ask the future Senior classes to maintain the standards we have established. In looking forward to the moment which is intended to terminate the career of our High School days, our feelings do not permit us to express, as we wish to, the deep acknowledgment of that debt of gratitude which we owe to our beloved school, and for the opportunities we have received through this noble institution. First — We want to thank Mrs. D. T. Rogers for staying with us dur- ing the great ordeals of selecting rings and invitations, and for being our Senior teacher. Of course we realize the importance of the class of ' 23 and know there will never be another quite so remarkable, and we feel that she has been greatly honored to be our sponsor. Second — We want to thank Mr. Kays for honoring us with his private consultations. We all feel that he has offered us advice, if taken, that will add great strength to our characters. Third — We want to thank Mr. Whitsitt for our prominent seats in chapel; we feel that he put us in front because we are all such model students in chapel, making us examples for under classmen. Fourth — We want to thank all our teachers for telling us to be quiet and asking us to move out of the halls into our rooms. We admit that we have found several Senior talents, such as temper, and stubbornness in class meetings. We shall expect all members of the future classes of S. A. S. on each anniversary of the class of ' 23 to send each surviving member of this illus- trious class a corsage of Magnolia blossoms tied with blue and white ribbon. We cannot say we have enjoyed the entire course together for the majority of us have only been together a year or two, nevertheless friend- ships have been made, and purposes and standards have drawn us together so that the Seniors of ' 23 will look back on this year as a very happy time. In leaving we have no excuse to offer for the class of ' 23. We have tried to " carry on, " and we can only say we will always be true to our Alma Mater. M. A. Pittinger, Secretary.

Anyway, in spite of the high hopes and the exalted self-esteem with which we entered the college walls, we were soon made to feel as green as the Springtime grass and the upper classes considered us greener. We learned, too, that the more we knew the less we knew we knew. The year passed with its " ups and downs " an d at last some of us were no longer the despised Freshies. SUMMER— SOPHOMORE YEAR Now the summertime of our Aggie course is nearly over. We know less than we did as freshmen. The question now is who will be overcome by the summer ' s heat and wilt and die before the end of the season. The summer beauty is fast fading along with some of our air-castles and the Junior year is thrust upon us. AUTUMN— JUNIOR YEAR As we look forward into the Junior year, the autumn chill comes upon us, our knees weaken as we anticipate the long and arduous tasks that devolve upon juniors. Our number will grow smaller but the thought of the privileges and dignities of seniors will keep most of us hard at our work. WINTER— SENIOR YEAR Can it be that this year will bring upon us the wintry blasts of criticism, the sleets and snow of advice from the faculty who realize that this is their last chance at us? Will the reward of work well done be ours? Yes, we feel sure that the class of 1925 will give a good account of itself and be one that will be remembered with pleasure and pride.

We are determined to be in the fore-front in our chosen professions. Our boys will be the leading farmers, stockmen, dairy men, lawyers, doctors, merchants, statesmen, ministers, newspaper men, electricians, engineers, and bankers for this entire section. Who knows the possibil- ities of these boys? We are confidently expecting great things of them and we know we shall not be disappointed. A look at our girls will convince anyone of their cleverness, their beauty, their charm, their all together loveliness. But let us go a little further and see in what they really excel. We have already begun our work in home economics, music, art and are taking the same literary work the boys are. We are expecting to excel them in all their work, and have these other accomplishments to our credit. Our boys will find us their rivals in all their professions, for are we not having the same training as they are? We are expecting our class to be the best of the best during our school days and for each member of our class to win some great distinction in after years. We are freshmen and have four years in which to prove our worth, four golden years of opportunity. We are full of great expectations and realize that every day in every way we must be better and better. Fifty-six C. W. Ford President Floyd Wilcox . .

Overstreet Ralph Wilson Fifty-seven The Longing of a Prep As we look back over the past four months of school, it seems to us as if they were the longest four months that we ever lived through, and then we begin to think of the next five months before us, before we shall become full fledged freshmen. It is for this that we study and try to make free promotion ; to be freshmen is one of our greatest desires, although they are called the green ones and have to take the blame for the trouble caused by the " sophisticated seniors. " When preps become freshmen they are very important because they are taking up high school work and their future depends on how they go through their first year. I can see our first freshie class meeting with its uproar and disorders. When we are " Freshies " we won ' t have to study geography, arith- metic, spelling and reading, but we can begin on all the " ologies. " It won ' t take long for us to be seniors after we ' ve once become freshmen, then we can have our individual picture in the " Annual. " Fifty-eight BooK III Departments Shall I Be a Farmer? Many of us are asking ourselves the question, " What shall be our life ' s occupation? " People who are not successful in any profession, sometimes choose the occupation of farming. This is decidedly a mistaken idea. To be a farmer one must have as great, if not greater preparation than for any other occupation. The farmer is a combination of business man, mechanic, naturalist and laborer. As a business man the farmer must know how, when, what and where to buy products, produced and consumed. In the days of our forefathers this phase of the farmer ' s life was lacking for he usually grew everything he needed to eat and to wear; what he lacked he traded for at the village store. The cotton was grown, picked and the fiber, after being separated from the seed, was spun into cloth on the farm. With the introduction of machinery this has been changed. The farmer sells his cotton and buys his clothes. There are other things that the progressive farmer must look after. An idle horse in the barn is so much feed going to waste. The farmer must plan his work so as to keep men and horses busy. He must foresee things that are about to go to waste and prevent them from doing so. Mechanical ability has always been advisable, to some extent, on the farm, but with the introduction of machinery it has become absolutely necessary. Just a little lack of attention will cause the loss of a day ' s work. There is more to farming than taking a joy ride behind a fine team of horses. Grain and corn binders, mowing machines and gasoline en- gines must be looked after. The farmer cannot afford to pay a master mechanic the salary he can receive in a factory, neither can he allow un- skilled labor to take care of his machinery. He must do that himself. Fifty-nine The farmer to .some extent, has always been a naturalist. He used to depend on the man and almanac to yield a bountiful harvest. Never-the- less, he has gained a great deal of knowledge about plant and animal life from his close intimacy with nature. Now the experience of the farmers all over the United States are being collected in systematic form and to this is added the results of the investigations made by the government. The farmer should profit by these investigations instead of having to de- pend upon his individual experiences alone. The farmer has always been a laborer. The labor which he must do now, is probably not so strenuous as in olden times, but he must still be a laborer. Then his farm implements consisted of a hoe, rake, cradle, scythe, and a few other tools each of which involved hard work to operate. Now the introduction of machinery has modified the work but has by no means entirely eliminated it. In a factory one man may supervise the work of a thousand men, and if he can increase the efficiency of each man just a little he has earned a good salary. Not that it is impossible to supervise that number of men but he seldom has over five men at a time and to pay an experienced supervisor would be too expensive. Therefore, if a farmer would be successful he must not only know how, but be willing to do the work. In the words of Benjamin Franklin, " He that by the plow would thrive; himself must either hold or drive. " Sixty Sixty-one The Hoof and Horn Club The Hoof and Horn Club is an organization of which our old Aggie School is proud. One of the objects of this institution is to promote the interest in the study of live stock which is not only done in the class room, but is taken up by energetic students of the school in the form of a volun- teer activity called the " Hoof and Horn Club. " Mr. Cook and Mr. Nicason are the sponsors and have been the source of much information to the membership. Through this club much practical work has been done. A Beef Feed- ing Contest has been staged, through which every member is learning how to feed and care for an animal to obtain the greatest amount of gain with the least cost: and also, a Dairy Feeding Contest, which gives us knowledge of the rules, regulations, and tactics of the showman who ex- pects to win prizes in the show ring. Besides the work in animal husbandry, we get practice in appearing on public programs. The members feel that this is the best organization in the institution. Sixty-two Sixty-three Sixty-four Top row, left to right: Coach Nicason C. J. Byrd Bottom row: John Miller Harry Hatfield Stock Judging Team Those interested in the live stock judging contest saw the team from Aggie come out victorious over the other three Aggie schools at the State Fair, at Little Rock, October, 1922. The team, composed of Harry Hatfield, John Miller, and Claude J. Byrd, with Mr. Wm. Nicason, coach, left Jonesboro on Sunday morning. They arrived in Little Rock the same day, and went to the Merchants Hotel to await the day of the contest. Monday was spent in seeing the sights of the city, as the officials would not let the teams visit the stock tents. Harry Hatfield was given the pleasure of his first elevator ride, while Jay Byrd busied himself with the task of keeping the pretty girls from kidnapping John Miller. Finally, the day of the contest came. The boys walked out to the grounds early, dressed in overalls and wool shirts. During the day the following rings were judged: in beef types of cows- — Herefords, Angus, and Shorthorns; Dairy type — Jerseys and Holsteins; Hogs — Poland China, Duroc Jerseys and Hampshires. Then all teams were called in for the report and Jonesboro carried first, second, and third places. Harry Hat- field carried off the honors of high man, making a score of 660 points out of a possible 800 ; John Miller came second with a total of 629 out of 800; Claude J. Byrd made 617 out of 800. John Miller was lucky to be high man in swine and was given a gold watch as a reward from the Hampshire people. Much credit is due Coach Nicason for building a team that could bring honor to our dear old Aggie. Sixty-six Junior Live Stock Show On May 1, 1922, the Hoof and Horn Club put on a peppy Junior Live Stock Show. This day was well advertised and came up to the expecta- tions of all. In the morning the stock judging contest took place between the two teams of the Animal Husbandry class. The team composed of John Miller, Robert Camp, Laudell Spann, Ralph Cochran and Wayne Watkins won the silver trophy over the team composed of Burl Thompson, Loice Har- vey, Stanley Sloan, William Tuggle and Harry Hatfield. John Miller was high man and as a reward received a medal. At one o ' clock the judging of the baby beef took place. Ralph Coch- ran ' s animal won first place in the ring for which Ralph received a medal. Immediately following this was the judging of dairy cattle in the feed- ing contest. Lovard Davis won the medal in this event. This was followed by a parade of all the live stock before 2000 people on and around the grandstand. Then stunts made up the remainder of the day ' s program. Among the most exciting of these was the greased pig chase. The contestants in this event were Ralph Cochran, Paul Peregrine, Joel Blackford, Fred Caldwell, Robert Camp and Claude J. Byrd. The pig was turned loose and the chase began. Round and round the field the scared pig ran and after him came the chasers, until Joel Blackford threw his 180 pounds upon his back. Joel held him long enough to receive his reward of $2 and turned him loose. Then another prize was offered to the one that could put the pig back in the crate, so the chase was on again, this time Claude J. Byrd succeeded in winning the prize. Putting it all together the Hoof and Horn Club under the direction of the efficient management of Mr. Olson and Mr. Cocanower made this the Junior Livestock day, one of the big days of Commencement Week.

Bryant Sixty-eight Sixty-nine Seventy Agricultural Engineering The school year 1922- ' 23 marks the beginning of a new period of serv- ice for the Agricultural Engineering department. The new Engineering Building completed last summer is one in which this institution may take justifiable pride. With more than 20,000 square feet of floor space in spacious and well lighted class rooms and laboratories furnished with agri- cultural engineering equipment of all kinds, this department is prepared to serve the " Aggie " students in their quest for knowledge and experience in the solution of the engineering problems of the farm. The American farmer is the most progressive farmer in the world. Scarce and high-priced labor has caused him to adopt engineering methods in farming. The advantages of farm machinery and labor saving methods need not be explained to him for he has long ago felt his need for them and ceaselessly demands improvements in both machinery and methods. The farmer of five generations ago did all his work by hand except for plowing with a wooden mold board plow, unthinkable today, but that was just in the past century. The farmer of four generations ago had iron mold board plows offered to him, but he was afraid they would " poison the soil, " and also crude reapers to replace the scythe, but farm laborers destroyed them. Our grandfathers, the farmers of three generations ago, accepted these machines and called for many improvements. Our fathers saw the first binders with knotters come into use as well as the general use of power machinery on the farm. What will the improvements of tomorrow be? Whatever the farmer needs and demands. He has de- manded and obtained not only labor saving machinery but also other engi- neering services equally important; irrigation of immense tracts of arid land and rice land; drainage of swamps and control of flood waters; ter- racing and the control of soil erosion ; building of roads ; improvement of farm power and transportation facilities; design and equipment of farm buildings; the adaptation of household conveniences to the farm home. These are all agricultural engineering projects. This department gives training in work of this nature which is of most importance to farmers in Arkansas. Soventy-one Seventy-two Engineering Club The engineering department this year under the direction of Mr. Lyle and Mr. Furleigh organized what is known as the Engineering Club, for the purpose of promoting interest in agricultural engineering. The en- thusiasm shown by every member in the organization has helped to make it one of the most successful student undertakings. The work in this organization is devoted to gas engines, farm ma- chinery, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, draining and terrac- ing, surveying, and many other subjects of vital importance in the agri- cultural engineering field. Each lecture has been demonstrated by experiments. The accomplishment that has given great pleasure and much valuable knowledge is the purchase of a radio set for the school. Through this medium the students, faculty, and the people of the city have enjoyed many splendid concerts. Seventy-three The Home Economics Department Home Economics has been well defined as a subject which centers around the problems of the home and other institutions of similar char- acter. It includes a study of food, shelter, and clothing viewed from the standpoint of hygiene, economics, and art, and a study of like relations of the members of the family to each other and to society. Hence, the clothing classes have co-operated throughout the year in making costumes for such functions as the Hallowe ' en Carnival and the minstrel, and by making handkerchiefs for the art bazaar, all of which work has given practical experience. The work done in the foods classes includes doughnut sales, candy sales, luncheons, and a banquet. During the Hallowe ' en Carnival the girls accepted a challenge to sell more doughnuts than the boys sold hamburgers. The girls won the contest. A candy sale was conducted during one of the basket ball games for the purpose of buying dishes for the laboratory. On January twenty- seventh a four-course banquet was served to fourteen guests in honor of the visiting Legislative committee. Seventy-five Business and Professional Woman ' s Club The Business and Professional Women ' s Club, consisting of about forty members, was served a three-course luncheon by the college and high school foods classes on February first. The proceeds were used to buy some necessary equipment for the foods laboratory. Meetings of the Home Economics Club have been held regularly on each second and fourth Wednesday afternoons of each month. These meetings have been educational as well as pleasurable. Some of the pro- grams have included discussions of the Present Status of Home Economics, Boys and Girls Club Work, The High School Cafeteria, Housekeeping in Other Lands, and The Hygiene and Care of Clothing. Seventy-six Seventy-seven The Value of Liberal Arts Education Before Specialization Although we are living in the age of specialization we should not direct our faculties into one channel too soon. Thorndike said that " The aim of education is not to fit people to get a living, but to fit them to live. " Getting a living, of course, is an essential to most of us but that is not the whole of living. We do not want a country of narrow-minded bigots but a nation of broad-browed thinkers. Early specialization develops only one side of our nature and to live fully and completely we need all the development we can get. Early specialization will reduce our capacity. A liberal arts course before specialization will prove a strong foundation. What architect would build a sky scraper without first erecting a strong foundation? Our fac- ulties will be keener if we do not get into a rut too soon. Mathematics and science increases the reasoning power, English increases the depth of thought, foreign languages the consideration of details, and history the understanding of mankind. What person can say that we do not need these faculties trained before we are ready to begin specialization.

Debating is not only a training for poise and expression but also adds much to the mental efficiency of the participant. This training can scarcely be over-estimated by anyone, and all students should grasp opportunities of this kind. It is a great mistake for a student not to join such an organization. The club has many promising orators who will no doubt be the leading citizens of their community. The membership of this organi zation has been unusually good this year and the members have shown much enthus- iasm over the debates. These debates have been about some of the most important questions of the day and a keen interest has been taken. The club hopes for still greater success and feels that it has only be- gun its work. MIHIIIIIMIIMIIIIIinil.-t Eighty-one The History Club The History Club of the State Agricultural School was organized March 3, 1922. The name of " The Aggie History Club " was first adopted but it was later changed to " The History Club. " The purpose of the club is to make a united effort in research and investigation of history and other social sciences, a common knowledge of which is necessary for intelligent citizenship. The following subjects were taken up in the year 1921- ' 22: The Founding of the Four District Agricultural Schools of the State ; The First District Agricultural School, Jonesboro, Craighead County, Counties of Arkansas, and Arkansas from 1836 to 1874. The work was resumed September 22, 1922. The entire year of 1922- 1923 was taken up with the study of Ancient History, laying especial stress on Mythology. Eighty-two The Oracle Club During the winter term of the year 1921- ' 22, about fifteen boys, real- izing the great need of making an effort to keep up with present day af- fairs, met, with Mrs. Rogers, in Room 22, and organized the Oracle Club. The object of this club is to try to keep abreast with the progress of the times by study and discussing the current news furnished by such periodicals and newspapers as are available. Each member is required to answer to roll-call with a current event and the programs consist of papers and talks on current topics of interest, which are very much enjoyed. The first officers of the club were : Mr. Vetal Armstrong President Mr. Ralph Gibbons Secretary This year the membership has increased to about twenty-five. Eighty-three The TJearlinq UH»iM»HiimiiiHiiHHniHiiiini(HiinimoniuiiniHiiiiimmiuiHn « Art Department The increased interest and progress in the art department this year has kept pace with the increased enrollment and the department ' s widen- ing activities. To make art more than a school room study, to make its use a reality and its practice a pleasure in everyday living has been the special aim of this year ' s work in all classes and we have had many opportunities for immediate and tangible service. Daily requests have been presented for one thing or another. Posters and signs probably head the list. Illustra- tions for the Yearling come in close second and are followed by designs for favors, place cards, etc. Although our ingenuity has been taxed almost to the limit, we read in these requests an opportunity to develop through " purposeful activity " not only technical skill and inventive ability but a conception of the joy of service. The Art Students ' League by the departmental club which was organ- ized in 1921, has not only more than doubled its membership this year but has increased in interest and enthusiasm for all phases of art work. Perhaps the outstanding achievement for the organization has been the purchase for the school of a collection of three hundred beautiful color reproductions of paintings by the world ' s greatest painters. This collec- tion is very valuable not only in the teaching of art appreciation but also in the teaching of literature, history, sociology, and other subjects. The club of 1923 has begun to realize its possibilities and it sincerely hopes that the club of next year may ever keep in mind our motto " Seek beauty, give service, " and continue to be a most useful organization both for the school and its own members.

Art has ceased to limit its refining influence to the favored few. — Newell Dwight Hillis. Eighty-six The Music Department Orpheus, with his lute, made trees, And the mountain tops that freeze, Bow themselves when he did sing; To his music plants and flowers Ever spring, as sun and showers There had made a lasting Spring. Everything that heard him play, Even the billows of the sea, Hung their heads, and lay by. In sweet music is such art Killing care and grief of heart Fall asleep, or, hearing, die! The above is what William Shakespeare has said of music, and few of us would care to dispute his opinion, at least, on this subject. During the year 1922- ' 23, the Music Department has made itself heard, perhaps in more ways than one, but the student body and other listeners have assured us that it was heard more often with pleasure than with ears stopped up in vain attempt to be rid of the sound. That assur- ance is what made possible the measure of success that has been reached during the year. The classes, clubs, and orchestra worked hard and steadily throughout the three terms, but not without enjoyment. The department is particu- larly proud of its orchestra, viewing it somewhat as an infant prodigy. The organization developed rapidly and, as the result of untiring effort on the part of every member, has acquitted itself unusually well. But theirs is not the only achievement worthy of notice. The members of the boys ' and girls ' glee clubs, who worked faithfully and long, are due credit which they have not failed to receive. And now another still, small voice insists on being heard, tho its owner is still in its infancy. Two sight-singing classes struggled all year for existence and have won out, to form a nucleus of future courses in school music. Altogether, we feel that the 1922- ' 23 school year has been a profitable one for the music department. Eighty-seven Orchestra Noble Ivie Charles Shoffner Mrs. A. C.

Enthusiasm was aroused in a most unique way before subscriptions were taken. The staff took the opportunity of a Chapel period to tell the student body about the expectations of the year. Mrs. Rogers, one of our sponsors, introduced the members of the staff and each made a short talk. When this program had been finished, interest ran at high tide and it was an easy matter to take subscriptions which was done. The first edition was issued September 29th. The other issues were as follows: Stock Judging Edition ...October 23 Athletic Edition October 27 Alumni Edition November 10 Thanksgiving Edition November 24 English V.

In the contest this year there was much interest manifested; six very attractive young ladies were nominated and supported throughout the entire contest. The candidates were Misses Thelma Bryant, Marie Hogue, Mildred Whitaker, Marguerite Pardue, Gemma Bearden and Ruth Graham. The winners were Miss Thelma Bryant of Weiner, a member of the Senior Class, and Miss Marie Hogue of Truman, Arkansas, a member of the Junior Class. Ninety-eight Nintv-ninc II lie Hundred One Hundred One Aggie Carnival The Aggie Carnival was an event which had been looked forward to with great anticipation and at last the time had arrived. The scene was one of great bustle and activity. The impatient crowds thronged to and fro. At the entrance of the wonderful attraction tickets were sold which admitted one into any of the side shows. The appetites of all were amply satisfied at the Penny Social where the best products of the culinary art were on sale, also hamburgers, pea- nuts, popcorn, candy and such delicacies peculiar to such an occasion were vended profusely. The next thing to be the center of attraction was the coronation of the carnival queen, which was accomplished with much regal splendor. The queen and her attendants were attired in very chic costumes, and queenly grace was quite evident in the person of the queen, Miss Anna Grace McGill. The eager and thronging multitude were vociferously requested to congregate by the show ring, after the coronation of the queen. There they were amazed at the prognostications of " Lonesome Mama, " who was a most uncanny figure. Following this a stupendous wrestling match and boxing bout was staged. Then the audience was favored with some startling feats of magic, in- volving the strange disappearance of a match and so forth, which were ex- ecuted by a personage that would make the illustrious Thurston, verdant with envy. After these exploits, the next character to bask in the lime light and be the recipient of admiring gazes was " Rusty Red " who manipulated the pasteboard weights with great alacrity. Sandow couldn ' t have held up a candle to " Rusty Red " when it came to jostling the dumbbells. Meanwhile the clowns were amusing all with their comical remarks and antics. At the close of this spectacular and colossal ring show, everybody ' s attention was directed to the side show, in which many of the wonders of the age were on exhibition. There was " Lotta, " the fat girl, a most astound- ing example of corpulency; the " Wild Man " who had to be rigorously re- strained from violence. Madame Zippa, an exotic, specimen of femininity who had quite a bit of information about every one, being acquainted with their past, present, future and just any tense you wanted to know about. There was a " Kissing Booth, " which caused many " smacks " to occur. But, Alas! the kisses were illusions and the " smacks " were smacks of masticat- ing pieces of candy instead of the contact of lips. (Continued on Page 104) One Hundred Two (Concluded from page 102) One could hear sensual strains of music issuing from the " Men Only " show, which prospered muchly upon masculine credulity. Besides these attractions there were others too numerous to mention. Now as if these attractions were not enough to richly compensate one for his trouble in coming out to the Carnival, a most highly interesting program was given in the auditorium, in which the clowns and the orches- tra featured. The orchestra regaled the ears of all with charming selec- tions and the clowns were very witty and in addition to their comical dialogue they brought their audience from hilarious laughter to briny tears by singing a pathetic song about an urchin who was brought to an untimely end in his career by consuming a green apple. The Ferris Wheel was not lacking at this carnival and it ground out quite a bit of money. Not for a minute did it lack for occupants and many sought the thrills it gave. On the whole, the Aggie Carnival would have made the affairs on Coney Island seem pitiful in comparison with it.

The chief events of the day were a joint society program, football game with Russelville, box supper, rnd radio concert. In the auditorium that morning a splendid program was given by the literary societies and speeches were made by some of the alumni and Mr. Hugh Critz, President of the Russelville school. These were very interest- ing indeed. Then came the noon hour and a sumptuous repast was enjoyed at the dining hall. The football game was the next event and we went down in defeat before the brilliant gridiron stars of Russelville, championship team of Arkansas. That evening there was a box-supper and many artistic boxes full of delicious food were auctioneered to eager purchasers. Great excitement prevailed during the beauty contest, and the voting was very furious for a few minutes, and feeling was intense; Miss Thelma Bryant was acclaimed to be the most beautiful girl, and a most beautiful cake was presented to her. James Martin was honored with the distinc- tion of being the " ugliest " boy and a very handsome cake was given to him as a token of the honor due him. While the people were regaling themselves on the contents of the boxes, the radio brought the music out of the air for their entertainment. On the whole, homecoming day was chuck full of interesting oc- currences. One Hundred Five A rt Exhibit and Tableaux of Living Pictures During the early fall it became the desire of the Art Students ' League to bring the Aggie students into a closer appreciation of the world ' s mas- terpieces of Art. They wished to purchase a wonderful collection of three hundred color reproductions as a gift to the school. To further this desire they planned an elaborate program to include an Art Exhibit and Tableaux of living pictures. The entertainment was given Monday night, December 18, and proved to be one of the most delightful ever given at the school, reflecting much credit upon Miss Barnhart, Head of the Art Department, and Misses Eddy and Jarvie, and Mrs. Dandelet, who were responsible for the success of the entertainment. The halls of the Main Building were arranged to display the three- hundred famous prints loaned the League by the Art Appreciation Com- pany. Christmas gifts made by the students were sold in the Art Room, and contributed to the sum paid for the prints. The program of the Tableaux of Living Pictures was certainly the most unique ever given in Jonesboro. Each and every number was car- ried out true to the painter in color, composition and form and impressed and interested the audience by its beauty and perfection. The Glee Clubs and Orchestra added much to the success of the entertainment, due to the splendid work of Miss Eddy. The orchestra played throughout the pro- gram and was heard with much appreciation by all present. The following is the program of the Living Picture Tableaux and musical numbers: Part One 1 " Madam LeBiun and Her Daugh- ter. " Music — " Rosebuds " by Le Brun 2. " The Song of the Lark, " Bre- ton.

" All a Mistake " SENIOR CLASS PLAY On Friday night, February 9, the graduating class gave the annual Senior Play in the Aggie Auditorium for the benefit of the Yearling. They presented a farce in three acts entitled " It ' s All a Mistake. " It was the most enjoyable event of the year and undoubtedly the best play staged at Aggie for several years. All the characters were well selected and carried off their parts exceedingly well. Much of the credit for the play ' s success is due Miss Delia Robertson, its director. Haskell Bloodworth and Jack Hodges as Lieutenant, and Mrs. George Richmond, the newlyweds, took the leading parts and led — a hard life. Haskell was entirely at ease and acted the distracted husband to perfection. Jack as the dainty, beautiful wife, was the best possible for her part. She spent one-half of her time worrying about George and the rest worrying about herself. Ralph Ccchran, the mighty lord, whose displeasure George and Nellie his wife, feared, was perfect in his portrayal of Capt. Obidiah Skinner, the lieutenant ' s uncle. The sturdy old seaman who is accustomed to having everything go his way, melts under the lovable influences surrounding him and becomes as meek as a kitten. Margaret Pittinger, as Miss Cornelia Skinner, made a very realistic old maid. Her love affairs with the unknown " Romeo, " (Carl Davis), was a scream. Carl played the part of Ferdinand Lighthead, the simple mil- lionaire " ya— as, y ' know doncha know? " Nellie Mclntyre, Captain Skinner ' s Irish maid, was Lena Hogue, who played her part splendidly, though she had a hard time finding that she was not " Romeo ' s " " Miss Nellie. " Bernice Turner, took the part of Miss Nellie Huntington who so suc- Huntington who so successfully helps George out of his difficulty that she goes crazy (?). It is then George ' s turn to help and he knows how. As a result the errant lover, Richard Hamilton (played by Elmer Smith) be- comes an " humble supplicant. " Everything ends well for " It Was All a Mistake. " The oichestra rendered several delightful selections during the even- ing. Though this is the first year for this organization it has taken its place as one of the best in the school. They are always willing to spend time and study to make any performance interesting and their selections are all enjoyed and appreciated by all. Seven Senior girls, namely: Mildred Whitaker, Urso DeGood, Flor- ence Williams, Louise Dryer, Thelma Bryant, Dove Torian and Alta Moyers gave a little song in Japanese costume under the direction of Miss Eddy. Mr. Furleigh had charge of the scenery and is to be complimented on his prompt work in changing and arranging scenery. One Hundred Seven Minstrel The minstrel show at the Aggie Auditorium Friday night, under the direction of Miss Delia Robertson, expression teacher, Miss Sara Eddy, music teacher, and Miss Marian Jarvie, domestic art, who superintended making of the end men ' s costumes, was a most enjoyable affair and re- flected much credit on those in charge as well as everyone who took part. The entertainment was given by the students, with Miss Glenda Liddell as the accompanist at the piano, for the benefit of the " Yearling, " the school annual, and was full of fun from the time of the curtain until the final. The jokes were all new, fresh and clean as were the songs and dances. Charles Shoffner was the interlocutor and did his part well. The end men were Noble Ivie, Ralph Stuck, John Miller and Claude J. Byrd, who were clever and acquitted themselevs most creditably. End women were Miss Winifred McCain and Miss Eddy, the latter substituting for Miss Mary Dixon Burnley, who was taken ill during the past week and not able to go thru with her part. The beauty chorus, con- sisting of Miss Dorothy Barton, Margaret Pitinger, Alta Moyers, Era Osborn, Louise Haynes and Gladys Morrissette, all beautifully gowned in appropriate and stunning evening dresses, formed a bevy of pretty girls, who added much to the show. A nice sum was realized as a result of the splendid attendance. One Hundred Eight Southern Literature Since the foundation of our great nation, the center of the literary world has several times been changed. First, during the Colonial days, it was in Boston ; then as the scene of politicial action shifted to Philadelphia, the literary center changed with it; and, at last, when " nationalism " was the watchword of our country, it was again moved — this time to New York City, where it has remained despite repeated efforts of Hamlin Garland to carry it to Chicago. But it will not always be so, for the literary center must be somewhere in the heart of the South, its natural home. The literature of our Southland is the richest our country has pro- duced. It is a literature which embraces all the characteristics of the other sections and yet retains its own individuality. It is a literature full of chiv- alry and romance, truth and beauty ; it tells the story of the joys and sor- rows of a proud, distinguished and refined people. Southern literature has as its producers some of the most eminent of all American writers. John Smith, William Strachey, John Lawson and William Byrd have recorded invaluable information concerning the settle- ment and early life in our colonies. Such prominent statesmen as George Washington, the Father of his Country, Thomas Jefferson, the author of the " Declaration of Independence, " and Patrick Henry, the ardent patriot, were all sons of the South and have, both in speeches and writings, given us some of our most sincere and thoughtful literature. Francis Scott Key, the author of our " Star Spangled Banner " is honored and loved for the patriotic writing he has given to literature. The literature of the South is not of the stilted, intellectual type as is some of our literature. It is rather a literature of action, of thought — a literature with a purpose and a literature with a soul. Every political speech of Henry Clay had its practical purpose. John C. Calhoun, the much-admired statesman, gave us some of our best literature when he was least thinking about literature. He was making a plea in the defense of his beloved Southland. Robert E. Lee, foremost Southern general, wrote as he spoke and acted, — honestly, simply, earnestly and convincingly. Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America, was also a writer of note and pro- duced several works of lasting type. Theodore O ' Hara, the soldier poet, will live in the memory of all who read the " Bivouac of the Dead. " One Hundred Ten Edgar Allen Poe, the fo remost of America ' s literary men, belongs to the South. Poe is the acknowledged founder of the short story in America and will always be kindly regarded for the service he has rendered us in widening both the style and range of our literature. Poe ' s poetry is equally as good as his prose; it is fascinating and haunting. Who, that has read " The Raven, " can escape its mystic spell? All Southern Literature is good but the best of it was produced by those writers who portrayed home life in the South. Most prominent among these are Paul Hamilton Hayne, Father Ryan, Sidney Lanier, Joel, Chandler Harris and Thomas Nelson Page. Father Ryan ' s " Conquered Banner " and the " Sword of Lee " voice the heart-felt sorrow and gratitude of a broken, but unconquered people. Sidney Lanier, the musical genius whose originality was equalled only by Poe, is the South ' s most famous poet, and had he lived America ' s most gifted. His poems are noted for their depth of feeling, beauty, expression and musical qualities. Lanier delighted in making the everyday sights and sounds bring a message to mankind. The " Song of the Chattahoochee " and the " Marshes of Glynn " are perhaps his best known and most widely read poems. Joel Chandler Harris immortalized the Old South with its institution of slavery. His " Uncle Remus Stories " so well and simply describe the Georgia and Carolina darkeys that they will always be treasures, espe- cially to the lovers of the Old South. Fully as great, and perhaps greater, is Thomas Nelson Page. This skilled artist portrays Southern home life " as it uster wuz " with entire naturalness. He so uses seemingly indifferent incidents and sayings that he lights up his pictures until they seem to live. Page ' s " niggah " is the affectionate creature of the ante bellum days and his " white folks " the gentle-folk of the country. His incidents are natural and interesting. His negro dialect stories have been described by the " Critic " as " A series of black classics, wherein the color is an accident, the soul human and indi- vidual. All that Mr. Page has well done is to open a sympathetic and retentive ear, to reproduce in firm outlines what everyday life in Virginia provides, and to clothe the whole in a humorous dialect which is to the psychology what the salt is to the soup. " Page ' s most widely read work is " In Old Virginia. " Anna May Davidson. One Hundred Eleven Aggie Reception On the evening of September 22, the Aggie students convened at that imposing structure of the " Y. " The occasion of the gathering was a " get acquainted " party. Upon entering each student was given a ribbon of either red, yellow, blue, or purple which designated him to one of the various groups in which we were to take part in the " athletic contests. " In addition to this decora- tion each student had a small placard on his person, bearing his name, thus making introduction more convenient. The chief diversion of the evening was the athletic contests which provided many thrills for the spectators. There was also a very entertain- ing program of music and readings. The merrymakers were refreshed with punch, cake, and that great frozen delicacy, ice cream. The " items " were- consumed in large quantities. There is no doubt that there were many fond friendships formed that night that will endure for many years to come. One Hum I led Twelve Three Story Gym will be built at Aggie STUDENT BODY WILL DO THEIR PART A $20,000 three-story gymnasium is to be built at the State Agricul- tural School, to be ready for use when school opens in August, 1923. This announcement was made by V. C. Kays, President of the school, during chapel exercises recently. In making his announcement President Kays proposed to have work started on laying the foundation for the new building, provided the student body was sufficiently interested in securing a gymnasium to furnish half of the labor incident to putting in the foundation. When this suggestion was voted upon, it was unanimously accepted by the students, and a stu- dents ' committee was appointed to act in conjunction with the Board of Trustees. This committee is made up of Coach Thos. E. Dandelet, chair- man ; Claude Byrd, Charles Shoffner, Wayne Watkins, Elmo French, Lytle Baber, Herbert Schwartz and Richard Hiett. They had a meeting with the trustees, discussed ways and means for carrying out their pro- gram of activities in connection with the construction of the gym building. The insurance on the grand-stand, which was blown down by a recent windstorm, together with the salvage obtained from the ruins, aggregat- ing approximately $1500 will be used as a nucleus for the fund to provide for the foundation ; work on which will begin just as soon as the old grand- stand is cleared away. The gymnasium will be situated a few yards north of the location of the grand-stand. It will be a modern three-story brick and concrete con- struction, estimated to cost from $15,000 to $20,000, and with a floor space of 150x135 feet. Besides a mammoth gym with ample seating capacity, it will house a swimming pool, an indoor track and the usual dressing rooms, lockers, showers, etc., for both boys and girls. An architect will be secured, plans submitted and the contract let at the earliest date possible.

CHARLES SHOFFNER Quarter Back Charley was a very capable general, a good ground gainer, and an ex- cellent defensive player. Plays football for the love of the game and is at all times a true sportsman. It was a real treat to see Herb carry the ball. The fastest man to ap- pear here in several seasons and shifty as an eel, Herb made monkeys out of some of the visiting players. Could always be depended on to gain the necessary yardage for a " First. " WAYNE W ATKINS (Captain Elect) Left-Half, Full This season Wayne ' s record was but a repetition of last season ' s bril- liant work. An all round player, he was shifted from the line to the back- field. Playing at half and defensive Full Back Wayne could be depended on in any emergency. Next year ' s selection for Captain, Wayne should make a great leader. JAMES MARTIN Right End " Boob " sprang to the front when Danner ' s injuries forced his tem- porary retirement. In his few games Boob proved himself a real star and became especially adept at raking in long passes for substantial gains. EDGAR McDANIEL Right Guard " Red Mack " started the season at end, but was soon shifted to guard where his great strength could be used to the best advantage. One of Aggie ' s best defensive men. Okel played his first year on the Varsity and was a stone wall on the defense. Most of the plays started around Okel ' s end were stopped where they started, behind the line. HERBERT SCHWARTZ Left Half OKEL OLDHAM Left End One Hunched Sevent een CARL REISCHLING Left Guard Playing his record year on the Varsity, Dutch was shifted from Full Back to Guard where he made an even more brilliant record than he did at his former position. LEM DANNER Right End Lem played his first big-time foot ball this year and made a wonderful record. Lem has the true spirit of a foot ball player and next season should develop into as brilliant an end as ever wore the Red and Black. ELMO FRENCH Center " Elmo Lincoln, " in his first few games, the big boy was a little nerv- ous and displayed a tendency to throw the ball " a fur piece. " After he got over his stage fright Elmo proved himself a defensive star. VANCE FENDER Sub Quarter " Black John " was the regular second string quarter. So good was his leadership of the seconds Coach Dandelet, t oward the close of the season, ran him at quarter on the Varsity. Vance is a comer and with a little more experience should make a truly brilliant quarter. RICHARD HIETT (Captain) Right Half Dick ' s playing was but a characteristic of Dick himself, a steady drive which knows nothing other than ultimate success, a great offensive player and a capable leader. NELSON LADD Right Tackle " Nels " was one of those hard working types of players whose work, though not spectacular, is a very necessary element of any foot ball team ' s success. One Hundred Eighteen One Hundred Nineteen Second Team - - Foot Ball The Aggie Seconds won for themselves considerable prestige in the surrounding territory. With victories over the best High School teams in N. E. Arkansas they were recognized as the best football team of their class in the vicinity. Several of the seconds made brilliant records and look good for the Varsity next season.

One Hundred Twenty-two Personnel - - Basket Ball League RUSSELL BURNLEY Guard Under Coach Dandelet, " Tarzan " attained the greatest heights of his meteoric basket ball career. An all state High School guard of several seasons past Burnley was chosen unanimously for the mythical all Con- ference quintet of 1923. An aggressive guard and one of Aggie ' s high score men. All State Guard. MAX SEYMOUR Center Max is the ideal type of center, tall, well built, young fellow. Max has made a splendid record the past season. A great defensive Center. Max also added many field goals to the Aggie ' s score. BURL THOMPSON GUARD " Red " is a very capable guard, could be depended on at all times and was Coach Dandelet ' s best bet in the reserves. With a little more exper- ience Thompson should make an excellent guard. RICHARD HIETT Guard Dick needs no introduction to Arkansas Basket Ball fans, having led the Jonesboro Hi team in various capacities throughout his Hi school career. Hiett made an enviable record in basket ball. Hiett won unlimited praise on the northern trip, but it was in the championship game of the Tourney he reached his greatest form. The main spring of the Aggie de- fense Dick played no little part in the Conference Victory. All State Guard. HOWARD McCAIN (Captain) Forward Howard is that type of cool fighter that makes so great a leader. A clever forward and a great general, every minute McCain is a dangerous man. Possessed of an uncanny eye for long shots and a splendid defen- sive player in short, Howard possesses all the qualities which are found in any truly great basket ball player. All State Forward. EDGAR McDANIEL Guard Under Coach Dandelet " Red " developed into a standing guard of no mean ability. A stone wall on the defense Red ' s opponents were not meas- ured by the shots they got. HERBERT SANDERSON Forward Sanderson is the fastest man ever to don the Red and Black. A little man, he is quick as a flash of lightning. His uncanny speed and footwork make him the ideal type of floor man. Sanderson capably filled the posi- tion vacated by the great Schoenfield. He possesses a weird ability to toss foul goals . Sanderson played his best game against Union U., and was in a large measure responsible for the Aggies ' victory over the Tennessee quintette. All State Forward. One Hundred Twenty-three Four Regulars on All State Team February 23 the Jonesboro Aggies won the championship of Arkansas Collegiate Basketball, defeating the Arkansas State Normals, runners up, in the final game Friday night, Feb. 23, the final score stood 28-17. The Aggies proved themselves superior to their opponents in every department of the game. Especially effective was the five man defense — the Aggies ' bulwark of strength — which proved impregnable to the most determined attacks of the visiting teams. The fact that the Aggies placed four men on the all state team is sufficient evidence as to the comparative strength of the competing teams. The fifth place went to Murphy — Little Rock College center. Murphy exhibited a heads up brand of basketball thruout the tourney and won the commendation both of coaches and spectators. Murphy is easily the star of the Capital City quintette. His work far outshone that of his team mates, both on the offense and defense. The four remaining positions went to the Jonesboro Aggies. The forwards, McCain (Capt.) and Sanderson; the guards, Hiett and Burnley. Capt. McCain might well be called a team in himself. A great general and as clever a forward as ever stepped on a court. McCain ' s long range fire kept his opponents completely at sea and his defensive work is well above par. Sanderson, the diminutive Aggie Flash — former High School Star — the kind of player that every one likes to see in action. His dazzling speed and shifty foot work make him a handful for any guard. Tho not up to his usual form in field goals Sanderson ' s floor work was one of the features of the tourney and a prominent factor in the Aggie Victory. Sanderson possesses an almost uncanny ability at shooting foul goals. His work in this direction being up to par with that of the great Schoenfeld — high score man of last year ' s tourney at Conway. Leon needs no introduction to Arkansas basketball fans. " Tarzan " Burnley — a little man of true championship caliber. Burn- ley is one of the much-sought-for type of guards, a wall of strength on the defense and a major member of the Aggie ' s scoring machine. Burnley was an all state high school man under the Black and Gold flag of J. H. S. in 1921. At that time " Tarzan " was pronounced the best guard in the an- nals of Arkansas high school basketball history. His subsequent years absence from the indoor sport detracted none whatever from h is former skill. Under Coach Dandelet ' s instructions Burnley has attained the great- est height of his brilliant career. None could have denied him a position on the mythical all state team. Dick Hiett, throughout the tournament played a spectacular brand of basket ball. Dick ' s work was pronounced by visiting coaches as a feature element of the Aggies ' success. His deadly accuracy spelled disaster for the visitors. Time after time when a score was most needed Hiett proved himself the man of the hour; some of his long shots were little short of phenomenal and coming at crucial moments swept the great crowds to their feet in pandemoniums of frenzy. Against the Normals with a championship at stake Hiett went on a scoring rampage which lasted thruout the entire game. His incessant fire from mid-court kept the Normals at bay and roused the spectators to the wildest enthusiasm.

Having played the best High School teams of the immediate vicinity this is quite a creditable record. Under the effi- cient direction of Mr. Herbert Schwartz, Second Team Coach, the seconds played a style of basket ball much similar to that of the Varsity and clev- erly outclassed everything they went up against. From the Seconds, Coach Dandelet will draw an abundance of mate- rial for the Varsity of the coming season. One Hundred Twenty-six Review of Foot Ball Season A weird succession of misfortunes and disasters was the football sea- son of ' 22. Pursued by a jinx which made its debut the first day of prac- tice and remained faithfully with Coach Dandelet ' s Farmers in every scrim- mage of every game, the Aggies of ' 22 made not so brilliant a record as their predecessors the Red and Black eleven of 1921. With three letter men as a nucleus and a squad of 35 green men Coach Dandelet ' s task of building a football machine was indeed a difficult one. His success and the ultimate result of his untiring effort may not be meas- ured by the drastic season of ' 22. Rome was not built in a day, neither is a football team a matter of a moment ' s consideration. Losing only three men through graduation, practically the entire varsity squad will report for practice this fall — with a year ' s experience and the rankling memory of the season of ' 22 fresh in their memory, the football team of ' 23 will be imbued with the case hardened determination to win back the lost laurels of 1922 and to raise the Red and Black banner again to the brilliant height which it has attained in the past. One Hundred Twenty-seven Review of Basket Ball Season Winning the Conference Championship the Aggies brought to a tri- umphal close what was probably the greatest basket ball season in the history of the school. Playing a par excellent game from the first the Aggies as a team in the early part of the season were above reproach, but not until the Northern Invasion was well under way did they strike the great stride which characterized their play the remainder of the season. From here on the Aggies ' record is a constant succession of brilliant successes. In every position the Aggies had a star, two truly great forwards were found in Captain McCain and the diminutive Sanderson ; Seymour at Center, playing his first year on the Varsity, played a stellar brand of basket ball in every game and was a prominent factor in his team ' s suc- cess; " Tarzan " Burnley and Hiett were probably the greatest combina- tion ever to work at guard on a Red and Black quinetette. A high scoring combination in view of which fact the low score of their opponents is noth- ing short of marvelous. For two successive seasons the Aggies won the Conference Champion- ship and broadcast a challenge for the State Championship. As no one has seen fit to dispute this challenge, the Aggies are recognized as the Basket Ball Champions of Arkansas for the second consecutive year.
