It has been our purpose, then, to make this number an excep- tional one and yet not to overstep the customs of our predecessors. In handling our material we have tried to sift the good from the bad, the grain from the chaff, and if this book falls short of your expectation we must beg your indulgence. We feel that as our efforts have been our best we can offer no alibi.

C. Kays, who devotes his life to the boys and girls of Ar- kansas that they may become better, stronger, and more intellectual cit- izens, and practical home-builders and home-makers; and whose intel- lectual attainment, loyalty to high ideals, and tenacity of purpose has built an institution which will make of Arkansas a better place to live. His devotion to service for others has set for us an example worthy of emulation. =.ui inn minimi mini iiimini nuiii iiimiiiiiiiimii Eight IlillllllllMtllllllliiiilllllilillliiiiiiniillilnliiiiiHiiiilliillltimilniiiiiiliiliiiiiiiniiuilll.i JMIIIIIIIItllHIMtllllllHIIINIIIIUIIIIIIMIIIIIIIHHIIllllllllllliUllllllllillll a The TJearlinq iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimhiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiii mill nun hi i itiii i ni ' - THE HOUSE BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD There are hermit souls that live withdrawn In the peace of their self-content; There are souls like stars, that shine apart In a fellowless firmament. There are pioneer souls that blaze their paths Where the highways never ran, But let me live by the side of the road, And be a friend to man ! Let me live in a house by the side of the road Where the race of men go by, The men that are good, and the men that are bad — As good and as bad as I — Why should I sit in a scorner ' s seat, Or hurl a cynic ' s ban? Let me live in a house by the side of the road, And be a friend to man ! I see from my house by the side of the road, By the side of the highway of life, The men that press on with the ardor of hope And the men that are faint with strife. But I turn not away from their smiles nor their tears Both parts of an infinite plan. Let me live in a house by the side of the road, And be a friend to man ! I know there are brook-gladdened meadows ahead, And mountains of wearisome height, And the road passes on through the long afternoon, And stretches away to the night; But still I rejoice when the travelers rejoice, And weep with the strangers that moan, Nor live in my house by the side of the road Like a man that dwells alone. Let me live in a house by the side of the road, Where the race of men go by; They are good, they are bad, they are weak, they are strong, Wise, foolish, and so am I. Then why should I sit in a scorner ' s seat, Or hurl a cynic ' s ban? Let me live in a house by the side of the road, And be a friend to man ! — Sam Walter Foss.

He only sleeps to awaken at some fairer dawn That falls o ' er night ' s eternal shore ; And where the waters of some mystic sea Shall break evermore. He is not dead ! For just a night his boyish lips are numb Beneath the twilight, and the eve- ning star. A little rest, — and they shall sing again Before God ' s gates that always stand ajar. He is not dead! The flame of vibrant youth can never die And turn again to ashes, cold and gray, Somewhere beyond Life ' s sunset gates we know It lights the pathway to eternal day. He is not dead! His hands perhaps grew tired of human tasks, Weary of holding up Life ' s tangled skein. And yet, we know, somehow, some- time, somewhere He will take up these pleasant tasks again. DAVID BANKS DEAN KOHONKE JOHN SIMPSON Sixteen Book I- ADMINISTRATION BUILDING Here we seek the wisdom, Handed down by Time, Here is diligence a virtue, And, whispering a crime.

DAIRY BARN Oh, I would live in a dairy, And its Colin I would be, And many a rustic fairy Should churn the milk for me. BUNGALOW ROW Oh, that this lovely vale were mine, Then, from glad youth to calm decline, My years would gently glide, And by peace be sanctified. POWER PLANT Alas! how changed from the fair scene, When birds sang out their mellow lay And winds were soft and woods were green, And the song closed not with the day. |t|tMllllllinillUI1H1llllMHIHIUIIIIIMIIIinilMINIIltl|l|llthlIllllllllMI11 i 4 THE AGGIE LIFE The Tjearlinq hliniUIUlllHllUII1llllliniMHIHIMHIHIIIIIIllMI|l tUtlllllllllllMIHIIIIg i When the old sun rises in the morning it drowsily opens its eyes and gazes about. As the purple-gray mists rise, it looks down upon a scene which causes it to open its eyes wider, and to drink in the fresh- ness of the morning. The scene that it beholds is an inspiring one- the Aggie campus with its buildings, its broad driveways and long walks, its shrubbery and shade trees, and its STUDENTS! The sun marvels at the sight which it beholds, and catching the spirit of the scene, sends down its friendliest rays to lend beauty and enchantment to it all. No master ever set on canvas a picture that showed more vitality, more dash and spirit, or more ambition and pride. It is a picture that cannot be interpreted by any colors ever yet put up in tubes. There is an atmosphere about it which poets have felt in their bright, fanciful dreams, which peers of literature have vainly tried to put on paper. The sun might well open its eyes on such a scene for it is here that five hundred young lives are being lived during the period of mental, phy- sical, and moral schooling. While many of the lessons that are being learned here are soon forgotten, others are learned and never forgotten. There are eyes which are looking brightly and eagerly into the future. There are friendships being made which will live until the grim reaper appears to cut away all earthly ties. There are young hearts fluttering with " puppy love, " perhaps to be broken, and finally mended, or if not broken, to die and merely exist as old memories. In every case the atti- tudes and impressions which are gained here are lasting, and bear im- portantly upon the future. For the red and black standard of the ever beloved old Aggie, the cream of her athletes always have proved and always will prove them- selves as champions worthy of their steel. In her halls there are trophies which bear mute evidence of success in the past, and no less glory shall she lack in the future, for there is a spirit among her ardent followers which will ever spur Aggie teams onward — over the top! Though the night be dark, the lights coming from the windows of that stately building on the gently sloping hillside shine as the beams of a far reaching beacon to tell the world that Aggie students are en- gaged in successful social or scholastic activity. Successful it must be for that Aggie spirit means success, and knows not Failure as its master. It makes no difference whether it be a party, a carnival with a ferris wheel and side shows, a debate, a play, or recital; it must be lively and spirited if it is promoted by Aggie boys and girls. i.ulliniiniiilMlllllil Ilinilinuil tirimimmm iiii muni : m 1 1; i: 111 ;iiiihtiiii iiiniiniitiiri )tuiMiiitiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiniimiiiiiiiiinnnuiHiiiiiiiiniuiiiiiiiuinHmiiiiin Twenty-live niiiimiMiiuHUiuimiiimimHiiiimiiiiMmiiimiMmiiiiiiiiimiitiHi The Tjearlinq fillllllllllllHIIIIIinillllinUIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIUIIIttlllllMIUI ' i ' When Arkansas searched from corner to corner for a queen to rule at her playground, the State Fair, it was here that she was found. In a state noted for its many natural beauties it is significant that her Queen should be chosen from Aggie. Hail to the noblest beauty of them all — the queen of the " Wonder State " of the nation — an Aggie co-ed! Like a great ocean liner at sea, guided by expert and experienced hands, this college is guided over the rough waters, and the smooth, by skillful hands. The hands are ever at the wheel, steady, alert, careful, and watchful lest some dangerous reef reap destruction. These hands, the faculty, are responsible for all, and it is to them that the honor of success is due, for by their guidance and care was it made possible. To them goes the love and respect of every student. No wonder the sun shines a little brighter on this scene, and no wonder the moon casts a more mellow beam on it at night. How can the flowers keep from blooming a little brighter, and how can the birds keep from singing a little sweeter here? Somehow it seems as if the shadows are softer, and that the mists of evening come drifting in with a greater enchantment than they do at other places, and surely the stars cannot shine brighter in other climes than they do here. x.iiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiii iniimiiiiniminiiiiiiiiuiiiiimuimiiiinii IHIIIIIIUIMIIHIIIIlllllllllllllllllMIHIinillllllllimHIIHHIIIHIIIIllHlllllllllllllllHIllHllln i]i|iiiiiiniiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiniiii:iMitiMiiiiiiiiMjiiiii The " yearling IIIIIUM ' MlilllKIMMIIMirillllililhlllilllllllltllillllllllllinilllllllllllllll ' j: ALUMNI ASSOCIATION OFFICERS Horace Thompson _ President Annie May Davidson Vice-President Bernice Turner . ..Resident Secretary-Treasurer r.llllirillllllllMMIIIIIIHMIHIflllUllltlltlUIIHIIIMIIIIIIMniniNIIIMIIintniHflMIIIIHIIIII niiiiiniliiiiijii, Minimum 1 1 n 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 imiiimimiimmmimmuiiimiiiiniin Twenty-seven iniitiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiniuiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiti) The pearling ,,,,,,, 1 : 1 1 1 1 [ 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Ml 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 M 1 1 1 I II 1 1 1 1 U 1 1 1 1 1 i I H 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 f 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 n THE AGGIE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION The success of any college or university can only be measured through the success of its alumni. The success of the alumni then is the theater in which the achievements of our institution are to appear. The Aggie Alumni realizing their duty to their Alma Mater and their powerful potentialities of inspiration, have united their efforts to possess themselves of a broad patrimony. Their success, individually and col- lectively, is inspirations which students of the present and future will not deprive themselves. It is the Alumni of this institution, who through their unfaltering faith and untiring energies, will fulfill the dreams of those great statesmen who conceived and founded the institution, and those sincere citizens who have befriended and promoted its interests. Though our school is still in its infancy, it has not remained in ob- scurity. The members of its thirteen graduated classes during the fifteen years of its existence have through their achievements carried the name and character of their Alma Mater thousands of miles from her venerable walls. The organization of the Aggie Alumni Association was a prophetic step towards an expansion and intellectual influence entirely beyond the grasp of reasonable computation. It will serve as an unobstructed outlet for the mighty power of an institution with " service to the people " as the guiding purpose. The association has laid many plans for the collective aid of its Alma Mater. It will promote its interests in the legislation of the state. It will send boys and girls to the institution to receive instruction that they in turn may return to build a greater and better Arkansas. The aims of the Aggie Alumni Association are identical with the ideals of the men who founded the school and because it has an ideal of service as its aim, it will succeed. p.iliiliiiniiiui iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiii ii Miiiiiiiiiini iiniiiiiiniiiiiiiitini liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiii i 1 1 1 1 1 1 n 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 run Twenty-eight JillllllllllllllMinillllNIIIIIMIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIMIIMillllMIIIIIIHIMI The yearling IIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIMIIIMIIIIIIIUIIIimilllllllllllllllMIMIIIMIIIIIIIIIINI ' f GRADUATING CLASS OFFICERS Charles Schoffner President Grace Love Vice-President Josephine Rogers Secretary Harry Hatfield ....Treasurer Colors ...Purple and Gold Flower Violet Motto We lead, others follow Mrs. D.

Charles is our popular president. There ' s hardly a tning ne can ' t do. He plays the violin like a professional, and not only deals with his studies creditably, but takes part in all class and school activities. Quiet and unassuming, but with the sureness of purpose that characterizes everything he does ; Charles has won a place all his own in the " 24 hall of fame. GRACE LOVE Philoeadian, Y. W. C. A. ' 2:S Yearling and Herald Staffs. Lovie always looks on the bright side of things. She has the most contagious laugh and happy dis- position. She ' s our pop ' lar girl. Her activities are wide in range; not that she neglects her duties for pleasure, because she seems to have the ability to make time for lessons. ' ' Oh, that chemistry! JAMES MARTIN Y. M. C. A., Engineering Club. Jimmie has faithfully performed his work and as lie goes out of the portals of S. A. S., he car- ries the best wishes of a host of friends. EMERSON TAYLOR M Erosophian, Y. Baseball. C A., Engineering Club, E. T. is one of those quiet, deep-thinking types that will be the Washingtons. Lincolns and Wil- sons of tomorrow. He is diligent in his studies and stands among the leaders in his class. May his. future be as successful as his school life. ETHEL FINCHER Philoeadian, Home Economics Club, Y. W. C. A. Ethel didn ' t come back to us last year as she should have. But we got her back this year and we ' re mighty glad to have her. Her lovable dis- position and winning friendliness have endeared her to many and her very charming personality strikes a refreshing note in the daily routine of study and play. PAUL STEPHENS Erosophian, Whitsitt Debating Club, Inter Nos, Y. M. C. A B. K. is a man with a perplexing future. The only things that interest him are chemical ex- plosions and wrecks. As yet we. don ' t think that matrimony has entered his mind, but we are ex- pecting it to take its place beside his other tur- bulent thoughts at any time. = iMIIIMIIIMJIIIIIIIIMIIIIIMIIITIIIIIIIMMIMII 11111111111111111111 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 II 1 1 1 1 1 ■ I Thirty 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 11 1 1 1 II 1 1 1 1 1 It 1 1 1 1 1 1 W 1 1 « 1 J 1 1 1 1 1 111 1 1 J 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 II I J 1 1 1 1 1 1 II 1 1 1 1 1 J E 1 1 1 .-l The Ijearlinq CUBA BROWN Erosophian, Home Economics Club, Art Stu- dents ' League, Glee Club.

First, we believe that we are good to look at, for we occupy the front seats in the middle section of the auditorium. We pride ourselves in believing that our conduct is exemplary to the other classes both as to behavior and the spirit we show in chapel programs. Our class meetings are harmonious and business-like. Our sponsor says it is a pleasure to meet with us. In school activities for the year we take our full share of responsibilities and honors. Three of our mem- bers have filled the offices of president in the different literary societies : Grace Love, president of the Philocadian, and Mae Nichols and Stanley Sloan, presidents of the Erosophian. From our members come several of the members of the publication staffs. Glenda Liddell and Nancy Tannehill are our representatives on the Yearling Staff. Josephine Rogers, Stanley Sloan, Velma Lister, Hor- ace Wallin, and Mae Nichols help to publish the Aggie Herald. The president of our class, Charles Schoffner, also is president of the Board of Control of the Athletic Association, and he captained the 1923 varsity football team. Lem Danner, Freddie Palmer and Frank McCart- ney also, were members of the varsity team. Another senior, Harry John- son was captain of the second squad and other members of this team from our number were Willard Irwin and Alton McCartney. Reaching over into the next year ' s honors, Freddie Palmer, one of this year ' s varsity team, has been elected to captain the team of ' 24. In basketball, as well as football, the seniors take their place. On the varsity team Russel Day and Willard Irwin are our representatives. We furnish the girls ' varsity team with two of their best players, Mae Nichols, the star forward, and Edna Evans, the star guard. James Martin, our long fellow, is manager for the basketball teams. He, for more than half the year, was the genial dispenser of hamburgers and cold drinks at the Aggie Inn. From our number the most popular girl in Aggie was chosen — Miss Grace Love. She is vice-president of the class and no pupil in the school outranks her in energy and enthusiasm. The football boys worked hard to elect her the most popular girl because she was such an enthusiastic booster of the team. We are the largest class that has been graduated, and we trust that from our number many men and women will develop who will bring honors to themselves and their Alma Mater. 5.IIUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII1III1IIIIIIIIIUIIIIIIIII Thirty-six |itniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiniiniiiiiiMiiiiiiiniiinnmiiniiiiiiiiiiimimnniiiiiinn itiiiMiiiiiiintiimiuiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiHiuiiMiMiiiiiiiiiiiitMiiiitii The Tjearlinq [iiiiiiiiutiiiiiiiimiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiHinniiuiiitiiiiiiiMiiiitiiiiiiiMiiiiiii A SENIOR ' S MEDITATIONS I used to think of the days when I could become a senior and now becoming one, my meditations are upon what I used to anticipate. Four years ago I looked upon a senior with a feeling somewhat allied with awe. They were going forth from their Alma Mater to venture into whatever life had in store for them. Upon their shoulders were to be placed great responsibilities. As a freshman I would gaze admiringly upon the stately group of seniors as they filed past me in their flowing robes, the mortar boards on their heads and their rings, emblazoned with the school signet. Back in those times it seemed as if it would be an age until I should ascend to the rank of a senior, with a senior ' s hopes and responsibilities. How slowly the days would go by. But since I have reached that stage how rapidly does it seem that the time has passed. A child looks forward to the time when he will reach manhood. In childhood it seems to be an eon from one Christmas to another. In youth the years go by very slowly indeed, but when a person becomes older he realizes how rapid has been the flight of years. I have many fond recollections of the days spent upon the verdant campus and within the walls of my dear old Alma Mater. Many happy hours have passed. Many of her benefits I have not realized or taken as I should, and for that I am regretful. But those many benefits that I have partaken of make me feel grateful indeed. I feel especially grateful for the kindly interest which my instructors have manifested in me and for the conscientious effort they have expended for the promotion of my welfare. It is my sincere hope that their efforts have not been in vain and I am certain that they will not be. My teachers will always hold a cherished place in my memory. For those classmates of mine who have traveled the same road with me, I wish the greatest success in all their undertakings. My association with them has been indeed an unlimited source of pleasure and benefit. I realize that my Alma Mater does not consist solely of buildings and a certain amount of acreage, but it is a place in which many precious mem- ories are formed and ideals are instilled. These ideals I will strive to keep foremost as a dominating influence in my life. Idealism is what makes life worth the living. When a student becomes a senior, he not only feels reflective, but also he has anticipations for the future. He longs for that career of service to humanity, and equipped with the education he has received from his Alma Mater, he feels competent for the struggles that confront him. To the furthering of the old " S. A. S. " and the lofty ideals she stands for, I pledge myself, and I will conduct my future life in such a manner that will throw the most favorable light upon her. ytninillMIMlllllHIIIIMIIMIIIMIIimiTIIIIIIIIIllllHHIIinilllllllllMMIMII The yearling iiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiniiiiiiitininiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiniMiiiiiiiiiii ' j: ' COLLEGE JUNIOR OFFICERS Robert Pickett ...President Cecil Baine Vice-President Mildred Whitaker Secretary Colors Purple and White Miss Emma Rogers Sponsor =.iiiiiii iiiHiMU uiiiiiiimiiii imiiniimuiniMuniiiiiiiinniiuuiHKiiiiii4ainjii»tnH Thirty-eight HiwiiiHHwnHiiHMiiHmuiiiiHimiiniiiiiiiiMiuiininiiiiiininiiiiiiuiiHiHttnfturf jMiimimmimiiMMiiHiMnnjiiiiiiiimiiiimiuiMiiiMmihimHiiiiHM The yearling iiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiimmitH iinnimiiii iitiiiinii wing CECIL BAINE Erosophian, Whitsitt Debating Club, Engineer- ing Club, Army Y.

In a few more days your work will be completed and you will be gone. Some of you will choose to travel still farther upon the road of learning; others will launch out into the industrial world to find a place there for your resources; and perhaps others will become home makers, thereby putting into practical applica- tion the knowledge gained in Home Economics classes. When you are gone, may you look back and say that your pleasures with us were the happiest in your lives — that they were, " Joys too ex- quisite to last, yet more exquisite when past. " Our association has been the cause of many lasting friendships which we have thoroughly enjoyed. We want you to know that we are proud of you. We wish to be remembered by you as you will be by us. The sons and daughters of ' 24 have meant much to the success of our school. You have proved loyal supporters of the " Red and Black. " When her colors proudly floated above, you rejoiced in her triumphs; but when reverses came and her colors were dragged in the dust, you bore her defeats smilingly and sportsmanlike. Bravely have you fought her battles. Your motto for school has surely proved to be, " I ' ll make her glorious with my pen, And famous with my sword. " When you leave us may the spirit of your sterling class uphold your Alma Mater. Now as you enter upon new fields of life, we wish that the success of your school life may be but a stepping-stone to much greater success. In the future perhaps we may be associated again — perhaps not. We shall miss you. It is with sorrow that we bid you good-bye. Our battles shall be forgotten as sweet memories bring back the days of our friendship. As you go our farewell greeting is, " Good-bye, good-luck, God bless the Seniors.

As Mr. Kays says, " We feel that we have reason to congratulate ourselves " that most of the little green blades that sprang up in 1922 and grew in 1923 were ready to take on new growth in 1924. As a class we have always been noted for possess- ing the true Aggie spirit; this fact has been proved by the prominence of our members in all school activities; on the football field, on the basket- ball squad, in the societies and clubs, and on the free promotion lists. In short it is sufficient to say, " When something happens, the juniors are sure to be there. " The fates have been kind to us in giving us Miss Barnhart for our sponsor for three years. It has been due to her great ability and enduring patience that we are the best class in school. But not all has been glory and splendor; there have been tests, and disappointments, and even with all our wisdom there has been much to be desired. Nevertheless we are in love with the past for all that it has meant to us the present because of its joys and opportunities, but per- haps more than all in love with the future because of its promise and mystery. Browning said, " A man ' s reach must exceed his grasp; " so as we read and re-read our motto we trust that it will keep us ever reaching and climbing. Our colors gray and crimson, also, have been chosen to symbol- ize those qualities which we hope to acquire. The crimson for life, love and courage; and gray, which represents the passing clouds of life, to mellow its brightness and prepare us to meet our difficulties.

Article I. Section I. This class shall be known as the most brilliant accom- plished and magnetic class of the State Agricultural School, Jonesboro, Arkansas, United States of America. Article II. Section I. It shall have three officers, who shall be called, President, Vice-President, and Secretary-Treasurer. Article III. Section I. The purpose of this organization shall be to impress the freshmen with the unfathomable chasm that yawns between them and the almost unscalable heights of sophomoredom, to shield the seniors from the open conceit of the juniors, and to soften for them their own over- whelming dignity. Article IV. Sectioyi I. No one shall be a member of the sophomore class who shall not have been in Aggie two days. Section II. Vacancies which shall occur during the year may be filled only by members of the junior class, who may be admitted only after as- surance of sufficient knowledge and ability to maintain sophomore dignity has been submitted. Article V. Section I. This body shall meet in regular session at least once a year and in irregular session as often as there is business of a sufficient im- portance to warrant meeting. Sestion II The officers shall receive adequate compensation for their labors by being allowed to rule such a brilliant body. Article VI. Section I. The sophomore class shall have sole and unlimited right to impeach any member of the senior, junior, or freshman classes for any offenses against the dignity or honor of the student body. BY-LAWS 1. The sophomores shall, must, will do something cute, at least once a week. 2. Each sophomore must resolve at the beginning of each year to get sent to the office as many times as possible during the ensuing year. .iiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin iMiMiiiiHiimHiiimiiiiiiiiMiiiimiiiiimm IIMIItlllllllllinillllllllllllMlinilllllllMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIlllUIIIIIIIIIIIMMIIIMIIIIIMIIIIIn Forty-nine |ll|lllllll1IIIHM1MI1llllllllllllllltlllllinillllMH1ilMIIIIIMIIIUMIMIUIIIIll The pearling milHIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIMMnnilllHIIIilltllllllllUllMIIIIIIHIIIHIIIIIIilllllllPJ 3. Every one must spend at least ten cents at each booth and to ride the Ferris wheel at least five times on Carnival night. 4. The duty of each officer shall be to act well his part, for there all honor lies. 5. The penalty for the violation of this constitution shall be to speak kindly to and overlook shortcomings of the juniors for one day. We believe in the sophomore class of 1924 ; that it is the most bril- liant, original, and popular class that Aggie ever will have, and that her members are the most capable, law-abiding " , and loyal; that the Presi- dent is the most studious and the best bey in school ; that our Sponsor is the most inspiring, and intellectual one of the faculty members. We firmly and truly believe that our constitution and by-laws are the wisest invention of the human mind ; that our yell is the most spirited heard on the campus; that our song is worthy of having come from Shakespeare ' s pen ; that its author will rank with the highest. We do earnestly believe that our motto is inspiring enough to carry us joyfully on our way to seniorhood. We truly believe in the sophomore basketball team, the season ' s champions? ? ?, the challengers: That it can beat any team whatsoever west of the Mississippi river. Again we believe in the sophomore class, that its fame as the most glorious class of the twentieth century will be handed down to posterity, through generation after generation, forever and ever.

But we have arrived at a startling conclusion. The pupils in a school are called the student body. The seniors are the head, the junior and sophomores are the body, and the freshmen are the feet. The freshmen have the largest class in school and all the other classes are ashamed of their big feet. VANITY! But, oh ! how often in life the head swells up so big with false pride, vanity, and greatness that, were it not for a firm footing, it would over- balance the body, and it would topple over. It is always consoling to know that you are not quite at the bottom, — that there is some one just a little below you. We, therefore believe that we are doing a great favor by just being humble freshmen, for where would the sophomores be if we were not here? RIGHT AT THE BOT- TOM, and by cutting off the feet, even the head is brought down a little. Of course we have the preps to fall back on, but we think it wise to deal gently with them at first and just gradually prepare them for the showers of cruel-heartedness, the floods of disappointments, and the usual line of trying ordeals which they are sure to encounter during the next year. They will be like a lamb in a den of wolves. Preps, we say unto you! " Be ye wise as serpents and humble as doves?

Some day we will be freshmen, juniors, sophomores and seniors and then will come college with all its dignity and duty. Though at present we are on the lowest rung of the ladder of education, some day we will be at the top gazing back and we will see that we have created a reality out of a dream.

WHITSITT, Registrar iiiiiiiniiiimiiiimiiiHiiiiiniiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiii iniini niiiiinina Fifty-five AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING S. P. Lyle The prosperity of Arkansas depends on the prosperity of the Arkansas farmer. The pros- perity of the farmers is not measured so ac- curately by the money passing through their hands as by the advantages and comforts they enjoy themselves and bestow on their families and communities. In other words prosperity mav be measured by the standard of living. The standard of living of farmers is often di- rectly in proportion to the use of engineering equipment and methods on their farms. A farmer simply can not raise and market enough of any of the common farm crops by hand tools alone to make a comfortable living. It is one of the main purposes of the Agri- cultural Engineering Department to present to Aggie students exhibits of improved types of farm machinery and tractors, that they may study them with a view to using their farm power, whether it be horses or tractors, more economically and efficiently. Special emphasis is laid on the selection, operation, maintenance, and repair of farm machinery. Another matter of great importance to Arkansas at present is land drainage. Vast stretches of fertile, level tracts of bottom lands have been drained by ditches and laterals, but much of this land which has been ditched is still too wet for proper cropping, and yet its income must pay for the ditching. Such lands need tiling to fully utilize the benefit of the ditch drainage. Let us finish the job with tile drains putting the land in a condition where the rich soil may yield bountiful crops and through its increased productiveness pay off the indebtedness. Still another matter which is now receiv- ing much needed attention is the question of road building and maintenance. The study of types of roads and their initial costs and maintenance costs are of increas- ing importance to Arkansas farmers, since the State Legislature has brought about a more equitable distribution of road tax and has made available Federal aid. Modern improvements in farm buildings and the installation of water, light, plumbing and heating systems are continually increasing. Arkan- sas has over 4,000 of one make alone of farm light plants in use and leads all other states in sale of this plant. Light plants are usually accompanied by water and plumbing systems, so this speaks well for our farmers ' high standards of living. The future of Arkansas grows brighter as the farmers utilize the engineering methods and equipment in farm practice. J. L.

" The time has passed when housework is considered menial. In order that the house- wife may be more than a " drudge and a slave " she must possess a special knowledge which re- quires special education in addition to exper- ience. Tabor has well said that " Home making involves far more than a knowledge of ma- terial values, " yet with such an equipment any woman ' s success as a h omemaker is more near- ly assured. It is the purpose of the Home Economics Department not only to teach the student how to cook and sew, but also to become a useful member of the home and community of which she is a member. The study of foods includes instruction in the selection, planning, preparing and serving of attractive and well balanced menus ; the best and most economical methods of dishwashing, and other cleaning processes; and problems such as the cleaning of glass, porcelain and car- pets. Instruction is given in the caloric value of foods and the number of calories required by each student according to her height, weight, and age. The courses in clothing include a wise choice of materials and designs for appropri- ate occasions as well as the hygenic aspect of dress. The selection, purchase and use of ready-made commodities is studied as well as the care, upkeep and repair of clothing, and household furnishings. The study of textiles includes a study of the comparative value of the four chief fibres and the types of material made from them. A course in home furnishings gives instruction in the best way of decorating and beautifying the home. Home nursing and care in sickness is taught to the senior girls with other general problems of home management. In general, right living in relation to food, shelter and clothing is the aim of the Home Economics department and we thus hope to contribute to the individual ' s and the nation ' s health.

" — George Herbert Palmer. " Our language will be most effectively taught only as it is taught from the living view- point — taught, not for the sake of itself, but rather for the sake of service . and taught by truly democratic methods. To discover and de- velop the latent literary ability of the learner — to turn this talent of the pupil to splendid serv- ice for himself and for the uplift of the com- munity — is one of the finest results to come from the teaching of language. " — Howard R. Driggs. " Language is a transportation line for the conveyance of ideas. It is just like a railroad, which transports goods from one terminal to another. You yourself are the sending station ; you load whatever you have to ship out, and you must be sure that nothing else by accident gets aboard. You must have a definite station to which to send it. " — Charles S. Pendleton. " Literature is the expression of man ' s deeper feelings. A chronicler writes down merely what happens. Let a historian re-write the tale to bring out the meaning of what happened, and to reveal what the thought of it inspired in his heart, and we have not a dry chronicle, but a work of literature. A mechanical drawing of a man ' s features is not a por- trait, and is not art. It becomes art when the hand of the portrait painter gives the spirit of the man and brings out, by the touch of genius, the soul within. It is this flash of revelation, this touch of poetry, that makes literature. " — Herbert Bates. Mrs. D. T. Rogers S.

" — Thomas Mosier. " The purpose of Art Education, " says Henry Turner Bailey, " is the development of appreciation for the beautiful and the power to produce beautiful things. " To most of us, the first purpose seems the more important because it is something with which we are intimately concerned whatever our business in life; and if art appreciation is emphasized more people will be led to create what they want to beautify. The love of the beautiful is a priceless up- lifting quality which must be cherished because it is universal in its application and democratic in its scope. Art is not a thing, but rather a quality with which things are endowed and the appre- ciation of that quality begins as soon as the individual makes a conscious choice between objects. We are surrounded by so much that is bad, in- appropriate, freakish, odd or extreme, that the principles of beauty should be taught to develop sane judgment and safeguard people from being at the mercy of mere commercialism. We should know good work and why it is good. The service of things is never interfered with by the proper application of Art. In fact, it enhances the service, the value, and the joy of useful things. Of what value would a perfectly constructed piece of furniture be if the shape and proportion were not good also; or the equisitely made garment unless the design, the color, and the lines were beautiful? The houses in which we live may be commodious, sanitary, well ventilated and lighted, but it will not be a true home without the artistic touch ; the fine things of beauty that are so essential. Taste and good judgment can not be purchased and sincere appre- ciation can not exist without a working knowledge. Therefore we are glad that our Art course is not a special subject, for the talented few, but a fundamental subject where the various forms of artistic expres- sion are worked out in practical, worthwhile problems. The development of appreciation of true values and keenness of observation may be gained whether or not one has the faintest trace of art ability. Then fancy cheating the hundreds, who are not talented, from the full enjoyment of the worthy creations of master minds in architecture, sculpture, painting, and craft work. These are a sacred heritage of the race and should be appreciated by all. Art training also leads to a better knowledge and appreciation of nature and helps people to use it in making their environment more beautiful. In fact, no one ' s education is complete without the ability to abstract beauty, and joy from the day ' s offerings, from early dawn to the glow hours of the stars.

G. Cook The department of Animal Husbandry and dairying is maintained for the purpose of mak- ing the school work of the student more prac- tical and complete. Practice is given in the judging of beef and dairy cattle, swi ne, sheep and horses. A careful study is made of the various breeds and care is taken to point out the best manner of grading up a herd on the farm. Courses are given in the care and feeding of live stock, symptoms and care of the more common diseases, and the production and han- dling of milk and cream on the farm. Students of the judging classes compete for places on the stock judging team which represents the institution at the State Fair. The dairy herd consists of about one hun- dred head of pure bred Jerseys and Holstein- Friesians. Many of these animals have show- yard records and the females that have not been tested will all be run on test later in their lactation periods. Three breeds of pure-bred beef cattle are maintained by the school in conjunction with the United States Department of Agriculture. This permits more extensive work in the study and handling of these classes. The swine herd consists of pure bred Duroc-Jerseys, Poland-Chinas and Hampshires. Work is given in judging, feed and care as well as practice in slaughtering and home curing of meats. Poultry courses are given in the various phases pertaining to this branch of Animal Husbandry. Birds for this work are kept in colony houses. A new central laying house twenty by sixty feet has recently been com- pleted. A modern creamery is run the year around. Milk from the dairy is bottled and sold, and the surplus cream churned into butter. Complete equipment has been installed giving the student ample opportunity to study the various branches of the creamery business. W. M.

" The motive of science was the extension of man, on all sides into Nature, till his hands should touch the stars, his eyes see through the earth, his ears understand the language of beast and bird, and through his sympathy, heaven and earth should talk with him. " — Milton. W. T. Martin " There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all ar- gument and which can not fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance. That principle is con- demnation before investigation. " — Herbert Spencer. " S it down before the fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived no- tion, follow humbly wherever and to whatever abysses Nature leads or you shall learn noth- ing. " — Huxley. H. B. Schwartz What an atom is the world, in the light of science! Yet what dignity has man by the light of revelation! What majesty and power and glory has God! What goodness, benevo- lence, and love, that even a sparrow can not fall to the ground without His notice, — that we are the special objects of His providence and care ! Is there an imagination so lofty that will not be oppressed with the discoveries that even the telescope has made? Ah, — to what exalted heights reason may soar when allied with faith ! E. M.

There is no subject except the mother tongue which is so closely connected with every-day life and which is so necessary to the successful conduct of affairs. Wherever we turn in these days of iron, steam, and electricity, we find that mathematics has led the way and guarantees the results. Mathematics is a type of thought which seems wrought into the human mind. It is found to some extent even with the primitive races and is developed to a high degree with the growth of civilization. In whatever civil- ization it may be found, the mathematics is essentially the same. It may be of a different scope, but it is of the same character. Miss Emma Rogers Little can be understood of even the sim- plest phenomena of nature without some knowledge of mathematics. The study of nature leads to weighing, measuring, and establishing relations which can best be expressed in mathematical methods. The chief feature of natural phenomena is change or variation, while the most important single branch of mathematics — the calculus — is a study of variation and is sometimes called the mathematics of nature. Geometry also is an out- growth of field measurements. The ability to grasp a situation, to seize the facts, and to perceive correctly the state of affairs is a pre-requisite to success in any occupation, and it is through mathematics that this ability is best gained. Mathematics is the only branch of study which may claim for itself the element of certainty. In other branches experts have disagreed and have not been able to convince each other. Mathematics decides whether or not its conclusions are right. Mathematics has beauties of its own — a symmetry and proportion in its results, a lack of superfluity, an exact adaptation of means to ends which is remarkable and is found elsewhere only in works of greatest beauty. It was a fitting expression of Goethe ' s to call a beautiful cathed- ral " frozen music, ' ' but it might even better have been called " petrified mathematics. " The beauties of mathematics are simplicity, symmetry, compactness, and completeness. r.iMimiiHHliiillHliimiiiHiiifiHimiiiiii niliiMiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiniiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiii Sixty-two UMIIMIIIIMIItlllllillHIIIIIIIIIIIIUI IMIMIIIMIIItlllllllimillNIIIIIMmiMIMHIIIIIIIII JtiiiiiiilllinilMMMinilllltllllllHIIIIHMIINIIIIIMIIIIIIUIIIIinillltUHIIl!

Within recent years greater stress has been given to its study and the course has been ex- tended to meet the growing need of a common knowledge of past institutions and conditions, as well as of past events. Three years of history are offered and one year is required for graduation. The first year is given to the study of ancient and medieval civilizations; the second to a general survey of European history, with special emphasis upon modern progress ; an advanced course in Amer- ican history is pursued in the third year. Besides the history courses there are open to pupils of the last year of high school, special work in economics and community civics. Miss Mary Babcock LATIN DEPARTMENT Three years ago it became necessary, in order better to meet the de- mands of a greatly increased student body, to introduce the study of Latin. At present the usual four years of high school Latin are offered to those pupils who may wish to elect such courses. The purpose of the department is to make the study of Latin as practical as possible, and at the same time to give the pupils a working knowledge of the language in order that advanced study in college is possible. = 1111111111 1 iiiillllllllMltlllllllllllllniMMIIIIlllllllMllinilMlltiinlllnlllllllllllllii a u IHIIIIIIIIIIIIlllinilllllHIIIIMIIIIIIIIMIIIIIilllllirilllllllllllMIIIIUIIilMlllllllllrUIMMMIIU Sixty-three The Tjearlinq THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT WHAT CAN MUSIC DO FOR YOU? Make a large place in your life for music and it will bring you a priceless reward. All the desires of your heart will come closer as you become attuned to the rhythm and harmony of life. In the hour of rest Music will uplift your spirit and give refreshment to every faculty of your being. In the hour of work you will rejoice in the strength and energy which Music has given you. In the hour of jubilee Music will bring you thrills of delight that compensate for all that is dull and commonplace. Mrs. Julia Haverstick In the hour of prayer Music will quicken the aspirations of your soul and perfume your life with the breath of heaven. In the hour of fellowship Music will blend your spirit with others in unity and understanding. In the hour of love Music will enrich your heart with feelings that magnify the meaning of existence. In the hour of memory Music will unseal the treasures of the past and bring a sacred glory to the present. In the hour of death Music will speak to you of a life filled with an eternity of joy and song. In the hour of vision Music will give power and scope to your imagina- tion and bring into reality the things that were not. In the hour of high purpose Music will summons the potentialities of your soul and urge them forward to great and glorious achievement. Such is the power of music as expressed by Waldo Pondray Warren. To this power open the doors of your soul and there will enter into your life a greater fullness of all that makes for progress and joy. r.illlllMlllHIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIHIllini 1 1 1 1 1 1 ri 1 1 M 1 1 1 IIIIIMIIIIMIH mill Sixty-four hllll1ll1IIMi llllll IHIIIIIIIIM1IIIIMIIIIIIIMIIIIlllllilinillllllllllllllllllll1IMIIIIMIIMIIIIIIt.1 niMIIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIflllllllMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHUIIIIMIIIIM The yearling HIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIUIINIHniHUIIIIIIinllllltlUllilllMIINIIIIIIII ' lllll I ' £ BUSINESS COLLEGE DEPARTMENT B. H. Parrish Education is the preparation to do the best work of the world and at the same time do that work with the highest possible degree of effi- ciency. While there must be industry, courage, application and high moral purpose back of it in order to command confidence and respect, vet education has a tendency to develop and strengthen these very qualities, and thus in a great measure command success. Those who are willing to take chances of merely competing with machinery may not find an education a necessity, but to compete with brains one can only do it with a well-trained mind. In these days of rapid advancement along all lines of human endeavor, the world ' s work becomes more and more exacting in its varied demands. Mediocrity will no longer be tolerat- ed. The business talent that was necessary to conduct a business fifty years ago would not meet the requirements of the colossal system of today. The rewards are greater now than then, and greater effort must be put forth to secure these rewards. In times past a man could let his business educate him, but now he must educate for his business. Experience, though one of the best and surest of teachers, is far too slow a process to be allowed to handicap one in his race for the goal of success. Business Education is practical education, and this simply means an education that prepares one to successfully conduct the business af- fairs of business incident to, and demanded by modern, every-day life. Bookkeeping in its application to the various industries of the business com- munity; penmanship by which the records of industries must be made neatly and legibly; correspondence by which the vast volume of the world ' s business is done; shorthand, an educational attainment which has become i ndispensable in the business world today, and a thorough and practical knowledge of all kinds of business forms, make an educational foundation on which the structure of Success may be reared. With this equipment the battle is half won ; without it a human life is constantly shrouded in the very shadow of failure. The CHOICE between Success and Failure must be made in Youth. Business Education means Education for Life ' s Work. = Mill Mill IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIUIIIIIIMIIIHIIIIHIIIIIMMIIIIIIIIinillllllllHIIII tllllMIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIlllltlMIIIHUIIItlllllinillllMllfMNItlllllUllflKIMIIIIIIIHIHIIIIIIIIIIta Sixty-five yUllllllllllinillHIIIIIIlltllMllllllMIMMIIIIIIIHHIIUIIIIMIIIlllllllllllllll The yearling riililiiniMiillllliiiiilllmillMHiiiiiiiMiiiiimii iiimiiiiiiiiuinuii ' . PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT T. E. Dandelet Miss Margaret Carmical An additional step toward furthering the progress of the education of our men and women of the state has been taken. A physical education department has been established both for the men and the women. Excellent instruc- tors have been secured, and very satisfactory results are being obtained. The aims of physical education may be briefly stated as follows : (1) The promotion of normal growth and organic development. (2) The development in each student in the formation of such habits, as obedience, sub- ordination, self-sacrifice, co-operation, friendli- ness, loyalty and patriotism. (3) The development of these personal traits which have an indirect effect upon one ' s associates, as self-confidence, self-control, ment- al and moral poise, alertness, resourcefulness, perseverance, courage, and initiative. (4) The creation in youth of an intelligent and healthful interest in physical activity that will carry over into adult life. (5) The formation in early life of those habits which tend toward the conservation of health, and provide instruction in the science of health, and the means by which it may be secured. From this work our men and women will secure the essentials necessary for leadership. :,iiuiiiiiniiiiui nin miiiitiiiliMiim hiiiimiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiihi Sixty-six IIIIIIIIMIHIIIItlUIIIIIIIIIIIIHIUIIIUIIUIHIIIIIIIIIIIItllHIIIllllllllHlllllinillllllHIUIIIIIl.T iiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiMiiiiiniiiiiiiiirtiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii i uiuiniiiiii The pearling Mini ii imiiiHniHMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiltliiiMiiiiiiii ' iiiiiiiir RURAL TEACHERS ' TRAINING COURSE E. L. Whitsitt For a number of years a short course for teachers has been given. This work was for- merly given during the spring term of the reg- ular session. Three years ago the enrollment of this department had increased to such an extent that the registration was postponed until the close of the spring term. The enrollment that year was two hundred fifty-three. The interest that the State Department, the county superintendents, and the State Nor- mal are taking in the training of teachers has had much to do with the growth of interest in the summer course. The State Department has co-operated in this work by sending Mr. W. E. Halbrook to direct the work during each of the past three terms. As leader of the sing- ing, chairman of the chapel exercises, and in- structor of various classes, he has done much for the advancement of the course. All the county superintendents have en- couraged their teachers to attend the summer course. Those who could have helped in the instruction work. Some have spent the entire time as teachers of the various classes. This arrangement has given the superintendents a chance to get in touch with the best teachers in the district and many teachers have found more desirable positions through this associa- tion and the superintendent has found the teacher he needed. The State Normal has had a representa- tive visit each summer session. Aside from the training of teachers, the summer session gives high school students a chance to make up work necessary for graduation. W. E.

H. Cara- way, Arkansas has obtained an Anti-aircraft organization as a part of its National Guard. The State Agricultural School of Jonesboro, through the efforts of its president, Mr. Kays, was accorded one company of this unit. Adju- tant General H. L. McAlister, together with officers of the seventh corp area, organized the company in October. The company is fully equipped. Each member of the company is paid one dollar per day for each day ' s drill and the men are doing some excellent work. Prac- tically one-third of their school expenses may be defrayed by the compensation derived from their work in the military department. This is of great financial assistance to the men who H ' E " Eldridge take part in this service, aside from the educational training which they receive. At the end of their training they will be fitted to take examina- tion as officers in the reserve corps, if they so desire. s.iiuitMitiMiiiiiiniiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiinHiiitiitiiHiiigiiitiititittuiiiiiiiii Sixty-eight IIIMIIIlllttlltlf lUltlllllllltllllllltMllllltllllllltllllllf IlltllltllJIIf l[lllltlllltJII»tlllllllllMI»1 IMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMMIIIIIIIIiniUIMIIIMIIIIIIIIIIimilllllllltMlllllllMIIIIMI The pearling fiMiniiiinii uiiinmiiitiiiiHiMiiiiiitn iiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ' £ IN THE OFFICE If you should happen to drop into the of- fice to pay your board, buy a stamp or a book, or mail a letter, or just merely to see what time it is, probably the first person you would see would be none other than the very august Mr. Warr. Your eyes would linger on that face for in it you could read something out of the ordinary. There ' s a bit of vitality that is striking, a pair of eyes that look straight into yours, a hint of friendliness and a good fel- lowship, and a spirit of eagerness to help. It usually costs more to look upon this face than one would imagine, for when you step into that office there is generally a board bill to pay, or some books to buy, or fees to pay, „ y Wair or any of the thousand little miscellaneous things which jar you loose from your hard-earned pennies. If you are lucky you may catch a fleeting glimpse of the fairest ste- nographer west of the Mississippi — a " steno " any office might be proud to boost. That glimpse of her will be like the passing of exquisite music and the charm will linger long after the softest chords have passed away. Her touch is artistic — whether playing a rat-a-tat on the typewriter or applying a delicate touch of color to a face that little needs it. You will like her because she will appeal to you as she does to us all. To every one of us she is just — Mozelle. Little would you think that all business affairs of the office are han- dled by this force. More would you wonder, too, if you were to be in the office during a real rush, perhaps just at the beginning of a term, and see these two working against such heavy odds, but always efficient and unperturbed. | i p.iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiniiiiiiiiii MIMIIMIIIIMItllllllllllllllllllllU llltlllinillH IIIHIIIIII1III IIIUIIII hum Sixty-nine ililllllinilllllllllllMIIIIIIMIIllllllllllltlll IIIHIIIIMIMIIII Illlll The pearling iitiiui mini iinniiiiiniiininiii iiiiiiuiii mining RELATIVE TO THE DINING HALL HARMONY Mrs. C. V. Warr The sound of a bell seems magic to the mortal mind. To the seaman the clanging of the big ship ' s bell is music. Kipling wrote of the " tinkly temple bells " of India so that even we can hear them in our imagination. One of the greatest masterpieces of art was a canvas entitled " The Angelus. " Thus can we see that the ringing of a bell awakens a responsive note in man, and with this clearly in mind the reader can more accurately imagine what the old hash- gong at Aggie means to a number of healthy appetites. To a dormitory dweller it means more than a beautiful sunrise, an enchanting song or a good story. It means that the mess-hall is call- ing. It turns us out of our warm beds on icy- tempered mornings as the bugle turns out the soldier. In spite of this " early to rise " prac- tice we have grown to love ; we look for it and expect it. However much we love our hash-gong, we love our mess-hall even better. Though the bell makes music for us, its tone is but one which the mess-hall music is variable; its tones are many, and unrestricted. We may hear at any time one which we have never heard before for mess-hall music is creative, and is subject to moods and temperaments. There can be heard the hum of voices, and the clink of knives and forks. This melody may be spiced with chords like the pouring of water into glasses, the patter of waiters ' feet, the sliding of a chair or the drop- ping of a piece of silver. (That is the touch of jazz.) When soup is served we are entertained by a kind of music that one would term as " different, " and the hotter the soup the merrier the sound. Some of our so-called high- brows and blue blooded aristocrats have favored the soft pedal on this kind of music, but to the heart of a plebeian it is dearer to let the chords flow free and untrammeled. Such favorite strains can hardly die, but must linger long, and be un- dimmed by the years. We who pass on intend to keep our memories fresh by visiting, in later days, the old mess-hall, with its clink and its clatter, and rejoicing in the good old sounds even though the stern conventions of the social dictators have taught us better. = iiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiniiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiniiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiuiHiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii| Seventy ItHIIHIIHIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIHIIIIIIllinHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIUIIlllllllllllllllinilllHIHirtfllllB I nniiiiinii i n 1 1 1 ii 1 1 1 1 1 m m 1 1 1 n 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 m 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 THE AGGIE FARM The State Agricultural School farm is sit- uated one mile and a half east of Jonesboro on a hard surfaced road. There are 345 acres in cultivation, 25 acres in orchard and truck patches, 45 acres in campus, 457 acres in pas- ture. A part of the farm — 100 acres of the pasture — is utilized by the government experi- ment station. For the past five years an ex- periment in beef cattle feeding has been car- ried on. This has recently been finished and a new one started. Mr. J. C. Jordan is in charge of this station. Wheat, corn, oats, hay, sorghum and pas- ture make up the farm crops, all of which are used here at the school. The fruits, vegetables, w w Cochran meat, and part of the dairy products are sold to the dining hall. Dairy products are, also, sold to the Fred Harvey Dining Car Service. The farm is used for demonstration purposes and as a laboratory for agronomy, agriculture, animal husbandry, dariying and horticulture classes. Mr. W. W. Cochran is in charge of the farm. Many of the boys, besides the actual experience which they receive, defray part of their expenses. iiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiin iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinHiiiiiimmuiiiHiiiiimiiiiniii.T Seventy-one - - 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 II I U 1 1 1 MllllllllllltllllllllMIIIIIHIIIIMIIH The Ijearlinq iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiinniiiiiiiiii Book IV. iliiiiiliiiiiiiMiiiiM iiiiiiiHiiiHiimMiiiiiiiiniiMiiiiiMiimiiimiiiii The " yearling inlllllllllllllUINIIIIIIIIII MIPIIIII IMIIIIIIIUIBIII 2 EROSOPHIAN LITERARY SOCIETY Since its organization this society has been a leader. It was one of the first organizations formed after the school was established. Its membership for the past year has been the largest of any society in the institution. The traditional rival of the Erosophians are the Philocadians, who have ever since the earliest clays of the school, sought to surpass their sis- ter society, in every way possible. Although they have never realized this lofty ambition they deserve much credit for the strenuous effort which they have put forth. This hopeless struggle they will persist in, during future years, but the outlook is hopeless for the Philocadians. The Erosophian society, however, realizes that the Philcadians society is indeed a worthy rival, and resolves that it will never be surpassed. The Erosophian society indeed fills a great need in the life of the student, for it offers splendid training to every one. This training culti- vates poise, and a person becomes accustomed to appearing before an audience. The practical value of this can not be overestimated. At the end of each school year the Eros and Philos enter into a contest against each other, to match their various talents. This event affords much excite- ment and intense interest. In the last contest the decision of the judges was in favor of the Erosophian. The merits of the Erosophian society has indeed been remarkable, and in the future years we feel assured that its glory will not lessen. s,iliitniiinillHilluuiiiiiilllliHniiililllilliiinililiiiiilllliiiiiiMiiiiiiiMiiiu«muiiiuiiii IIIUIMHII ItnilUlttllllHHIIIIIIIIHIItllllltlllllllllllllHIIIIIIWIIIIIIIIIIMimittlHIHHIHIlfli Seventy-three il ' tiiiilliiimiiMmuitiimiiltiini iiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiimiiimuiiiiiiih The yearling iiiiiiiiiiiiniMiiiriiiiiiiiiiimiiiMiiiuiuiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiS THE PHILOCADIAN LITERARY SOCIETY The Philocadian Literary Society was one of the first societies organ- ized in this school. It is young compared with the societies of many other schools, yet compared with the other societies of this school it is one of the two oldest societies here. It was organized in 1910 while " Aggie " was situated in the business district of Jonesboro. Few of us remember when the small body of " Aggie " pupils recited in what is now the K of P. Hall. A year later the faculty decided that a little friendly rivalry between the two societies would add interest and enthusiasm to the societies, so a committee of students and factulty members drew up a list of rules for an inter-society contest to be held yearly during commencement week. As a trophy, the school presented to the winning society our beloved Winged Victory. Since that time our society has grown beyond all expectations, not only in number but in quality. It is with us that the Winged Victory has spent most of its life. We have had our defeats, but we have taken them nobly — like true Philocadians will ever take defeat. But with justified joy and pride we recall that our victories have been more numerous than our defeats. Last year we lost by a very small margin after holding the Winged Victory for two years, but we hope — yea, we are confident that we shall win in the contest this year and shall be able to welcome the Winged Vic- tory home after a year ' s visit to the Erosophian Society.

The club is handled by student officers under the sponsorship of the Animal Husbandry Department. Questions pertaining to all branches of live stock and dairying are discussed during the year. Many interesting topics and debates are held for it gives the boy an opportunity to meet students from other sections. Each year a feeding contest is held under the auspices of this club. The winner of this contest receives a medal, which is prized as highly as any medal given for student activities. In the spring a feeding contest and live stock show is arranged for, the final is held during commence- ment week. The Stock Judging Team is another part of the work sponsored by the club. All members are eligible to try out for the team and the winners are given a trip to the State Fair where they compete with representatives from the other Agricultural Schools. The activities of the Hoof and Horn Club are such that any student so desiring, may receive splendid training that will be useful to him in his home community after his school days here have passed. r.lllllllinillllMIINIIIIIIHIIIIIIfltllllllllllltllllllllllllllMIIIIIMMIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIMIIIMIIIIIH Seventy-six niiMiiiiiiiMUMiiiMniiiiiiitiiiiMiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiniiiifiiiiiiiiiiuiil.i jiiiiiiiiiiiiMimniiimiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiMHMi i iniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii The yearling iiiiimmiiiiiiiiiiimiimiiiiiituiiiiiii iiiiiinmiitiiiiiiiiimHiHi g ART STUDENTS ' LEAGUE Irene Albright Harriet Brown Mary Dixon Burnley Aldwin Dryer Glenda Liddell Olin Findley Cornelia Games Alta Moyers Margaret Malone Maisie Orf Belle Rankin Cathryne Slaughter Bernice Turner Mildred Whitaker Jewell Winters Virginia Webb Wilmia Wegman Elizabeth Watson Virginia Watson Mrs. J.

An opportunity was given whereby each student could choose the society or club doing the kind of work in which he was interested. On March 3, 1921, fifteen boys who had signified their desire to study current events, organized themselves into what is known as the Oracle Club. The membership has continued to increase until we now have twenty- eight. This shows that its number of new members has kept pace with the increase in the student body. The Club meets each Friday at 11:30 a. m. The members answer to roll call with an interesting current event. The program consists! of talks and papers on the topics of the day. To vary the program, instead of a single discussion of an event, often the subject is debated by members chosen by the program committee. This gives the members an opportunity of developing their powers of expression and poise which are necessary if one would make a favorable impression on a public audience. These smaller group organizations have the advantage over the larger organizations in that the members have opportunity to appear oftener on the program. The Oracle Club is surely creating a greater interest in topics of the day, and the members will leave school more conversant with the affairs that are transpiring in the outside world.

The various phases of agricultural engineering are considered, and opportunity is offered to all members to form in small groups and use the school equip- ment in the study of such problems as interest them individually, such as surveying and staking tile drainage systems, rice dykes and irrigation ditches, terracing projects, etc. The tractors, gas engines, farm light and pumping plants and other machinery are, also, at the disposal of the members for experimental purposes. Modern farm buildings and home conveniences such as heat, water and light are of especial interest to Aggie students in the Engineering Club. A trip through the Aggie heating and light plant, together with a lecture by Mr. Hague, was very instructive. The construction and operation of the ferris wheel has been an attractive contribution to the Aggie carnivals, of which the Engineering Club is proud. The use of educatio nal films and comedy reels have brought many visitors to the meetings, and the radio receiving set has furnished enter- tainment to the whole school, especially during the spring and fall evenings when the radio music floats across the campus to the dormitories and faculty homes.

" The purpose of the club is to further the interest in research and investigation of history and other social sciences, a common knowledge of which is necessary for intelligent citizenship. The first year was spent in the study of local history as follows : " The Four District Agricultural Schools, " " City of Jonesboro, " " Different Counties of Arkansas, " and the " History of Arkansas from 1836 to 1874. " The next year was given over to the study of ancient history, putting special attention on mythology. The first term of the present year the subject for study was current history. During this term a debate was held with the Oracle Club in which the History Club was victorious. At the end of the first term it seemed best to change the name and purpose of the club ; consequently the club became a literary society choos- ing for its name The Clionian Literary Society. During the three years of this organization the membership has in- creased from twelve to thirty-five. The members are all wide awake work- ing earnestly and enthusiastically, and are determined to make the best of the benefits derived from an organization of this kind. The Clionians intend to be assets to Aggie. r.llllllllllHIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIMItHllinillllllllllllllllllllllllHIIItinillllllllll 1llirilHIIHI»ll»MIHIIIIIIIItlllMIIIIIIHMIIIIIIIMUinillHHI Iini MII1IHIIUHIHI1HlllllHII.T Eighty-five JiiiiiiiiiiiitiiiMiiniiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiHitiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiinii The Uearlina mniiirmimmiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiminiiimmimiiii iiiiiiiiniiiii i Y. M. C. A. The purpose of a college Y. M. C. A. is not only to create, maintain and extend through school life a strong, high moral sentiment, but to assist the college in rendering a greater service to the men students. New students who are away from home for the first time are assisted very materially in adjusting themselves to new conditions and are made to feel at home at Aggie. The association with young men, with good moral character tends to bring the best that is within us to the surface, and create an attitude of confidence and loyalty to fellow students and to the college. Membership is open to non-church members as well as those who are professed followers of Jesus. Young men, joint the Y. M. C.

To become a member of this organization one must be a Latin pupil of good standing, or must have completed at least a two-years course in Latin. This society was organized for the promotion of the study of Latin in the school and to create an interest in the classics. The following will give an idea of the type of programs given in the society : 1. The City of Pompeii Before the Destruction. 2. The Destruction of Pompeii. 3. The Eruption of Vesuvious. (Pliny ' s.) 4. A Day in Pompeii. At the carnival, the Inter Nos colors, royal purple and white, were very much in evidence, illuminated by the electric sign of the Inter Nos of times; have done " squads east " and " squads west, " but we don ' t expect gazing globe of the latest model to reveal to the spectators their future. r.llltlllllUIIIIIIIMIIMIIIIIIIinilllllllllllltlllllllllMIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIMIIIIIIItllllllHIIMIIII Ninety D=0 IIMMMIMIIIIUIIIIIIItlltllininilhlMlllllllllllllNlinillllllllllllMIIMIIHIIHIIIIIIIH BATTERY " C " OFFICERS ' CLUB Too much praise can not be given to the service whose earliest mani- festations extend into the dimmest recesses of the world ' s history ; on behalf of which man has always been so willing to lend his supreme efforts, and upon which the security and peace of our country will ever rest. It is the purpose of this military unit at Aggie, to portray to the men enlisted, something of the spirit that has lent to the profession of arms its dignity and prestige, enhanced as it is by hundreds of years of the noblest traditions and enriched by the contributions of the most noted characters of all history. We of Battery " C, " who have worked here this winter in the midst of trying circumstances, when conditions were unsettled and innovation the thing of the moment, are apt to have a clouded vision of what the Service means. But we cherish great ambitions for its future and for the future of the Arkansas National Guard. You of the outer world, undisturbed by any present thoughts of danger and forgetful for the time being of the great obligations you owe to a well trained military safe-guard, may be prone to close your eyes to the value of that service. The theme that has actuated the promoters of the present system of military safe-guard was to get an organization that would give the most possible training at the least possible expense to the government. We have " D. T.ed " around the campus with a Springfield trying to bounce off our shoulders; have rolled and unrolled packs " N " number of times; have done " squads east " and " squads west, " but we don ' t expect to get our real soldiering until next summer at " Sill.

Beautiful baskets and other craft work were exhibited by the Art Depart- ment. Attractive well-prepared foods were exhibited by the foods classes. The sewing department exhibited beautifully executed garments from every class. There were many visitors present who expressed their admir- ation for the work accomplished in this department.

The Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. members were those who made possible this " Get-Together " party, and from the evidences of friend- ships now shown on the campus, they feel sure that there were many who " got-together. " Through the kindness of Mr. Kays large lights were thrown over the front part of the campus, but to the great regret of some especially, there were no opportunities of pairing off into concealed groups. As the boys and girls came to the building they were met by Mae Nichols and Margaret Young, who handed them blue and red triangles, telling them to write their names on them. Later, everyone found that these triangles were not only " identification " marks, but also had a num- ber which corresponded with that of another triangle. In this novel way everyone found partners for all the games. After all the partners had time to get " acquainted " a number of interesting and amusing games were played under the direction of Josephine Rogers. One of the most entertaining features of the evening was the " Double quartet. " During their humorous song an apple and a Hershey bar were thrown out for the audience; the last object, however, that was thrown was not wanted, because it was a rotten egg in the form of a hard-boiled egg. The greatest fun began with the " Grand Procession. " The leaders were Glenda Liddell and Charles Schoffner, and they lead a merry chase. After zig-zagging across the campus several times, leaping fences, run- ning, skipping and other exercises which tended towards heating every- one up they suddenly gave us the biggest surprise of the evening, when they marched us down into the gymnasium where tempting refreshments awaited us. After being refreshed several times and some many times, the crowd finally dwindled, all declaring what a wonderful time they had had. 5.tluniIltl|||IUIimil1IMUMII1IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIUMIIIIIIIIIIfll11IIIIIIIIIIJIIIIMII Ninety-eight iiiMimiliHiiiiimmiHiiiiiHiiiiiMiifiiiiniiii innniMniiiniiniiniminmininmnuio ' JMIIIIIIIIIIinillllllllllllllllllllflllllllllllllllllMIIIIMIIIIIIIIIUIIIIII The pearling IIIIIUII IIIIIIIIIIUIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIMIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIItllMII ' IIIIIMH THE AGGIE CARNIVAL For more than a week excitement reigned high in and about Aggie, and for no other reason than that she had been preparing for her Annual Fall Carnival. The first heraldry of its approach was given when several of the most popular and beautiful girls of Aggie were put up for the election of the Carnival Queen. The battle raged highest between Miss Jewel Smith and Miss Lucille Winchell, but after all the votes were counted Miss Jewel Smith was acclaimed the Carnival Queen. Each booth of the Carnival was well represented in the parade both Friday and Saturday afternoons. Although our parade would have done credit to any circus, it was not Ringling Brothers but Aggie ' s. The first temptation to spend your pennies came when you smelled fried chicken. Upon further investigation you found that the Y. W. C. A. was giving a penny supper and was giving much for a penny. After satis- fying your appetite and drinking hot coffee, a novel way of cooling off was offered by the Engineering Club, who had erected a Ferris Wheel. This proved to be one of the main attractions of the evenings, for each seat was filled during the entire time. Many were lured into the booth where the " Bathing Beauties " sign was displayed. The " Bathing Beauties " seemed to be perfectly at ease and did not mind displaying their swimming abilities for they were beau- tiful gold fish swimming in their little bowl. The Mechanical Dolls, run by the Erosophian Society, were not en- tirely mechanical for several reasons. They had unnatural grins on their faces and made funny sounds, — suspiciously like giggles which astonished many sight-seers. Those who were especially interested in Astronomy, had a wonderful chance to gaze through a telescope, furnished by the Philocadians, and they saw the " stars " — Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks and Charlie Chaplin. = || I IINIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIMIIMIMNIIIIIMIMimiMIMIIIlin I IIHIIMIHUIHH IIIIIIIIIHMIII1IIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII1II1IIIIIII1IIIIIIIIIIII1IIIIIUHIIIIII1IIIIII1III1IUIII Ninety-nine ■IIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIlHIIIIIIHIIIIHIIHIIlllllllllllllilllllllllllllll - The TJearlinq hllllllllHIIIIIIIIIIIIIMinMIIMHIIIIIIIIIIillllUIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIUIIMIIII ' £ For several strolling lovers, who wished to learn their future, the Inter Nos furnished a fortune telling booth. For lovers, usually, a rolling pin or diamond ring could be seen upon the polished surface of the crystal globe. Upon entering the Aggie Herald booth, we saw the most wonderful freak of nature, a bride and groom for, here, Bernice Turner was dressed half bride and half groom. The Girls ' Athletics booth was very clever and did the girls justice, for the " Seven Wonders of the World " were seven girls dressed to repre- sent the seven sports of the world. Besides these booths were the " Kweer Kapers, " where if a person sat down on a bench especially prepared he would certainly perform " kweer kapers; " the booth where the goose laid the golden eggs was kept busy laying eggs, not golden but noisy, such as whistles, balloons, goose-quack- ers, etc. The Animal Husbandry booth furnished much merriment; the Oracle Club furnished hot lunches at all hours; and the Experiment sta- tion had a most exciting show — a rodeo. The vaudeville show in the auditorium under the direction of Miss Deal, was one of the hits of the evening. The program was staged in eight acts and was greatly enjoyed. During the intermission, the prize fight between Dempsey and Firpo was received over the radio, and notwithstanding it was of short duration, all greatly enjoyed it. On Saturday night all of the shows were open and hundreds of people visited each place. The crowning of the " Carnival Queen " who was riding in a decorated cart drawn by " Sally, " was a most beautiful sight. The dance of eight beautiful girls before the queen was witnessed by many, and after this dance, Miss Harrison, a finished toe dancer, performed be- fore the queen. The Carnival of 1923 eclipsed the Carnival of 1922 in many ways, and the students and faculty appreciated the liberal patronage of the people of Jonesboro and surrounding communities.

Oh, who can forget the old school house that stood on the hill? Who can forget the sweet little maidens with their pink sun-bonnets and checkered dresses — the walks to the spring and the drinks of pure cold water from the gourd? Who can forget the old time courtships at the singing school? When the boy found the opportunity he wrote these tender lines to his sweetheart: " The rose is red, the violet blue — Sugar is sweet, and so are you. " She read it and blushed, and turned it over and wrote on the back of it : " As sure as the vine clings round the stump, I ' ll be your little sugar lump. " Who can forget the old time singing master? The old time singing master with very light hair, a dyed moustache, a wart on his left eyelid, and one game leg, was the pride of rural society. " Boys and girls, " he would say, " music is a conglomeration of pleas- ing sounds, or a succession or combination of simultaneous sounds, modu- lated in accordance with harmony. Harmony is the sociability of two or more musical strains. Melody denotes the pleasing combustion of musical and measured sounds as they succeed each other in transit. The elements of music consist of seven original tones, which constitute the diatonic scale, together with its steps and half-steps, the whole being compromised into ascending notes and hold-notes, thus : " Do-ra-mi-f a-sol-la-ti-do-, etc. " " Now if you will keep these simple propersitions clear in your phy- sical minds, there is no power under the broad canister of heaven which can prevent you from becoming succinctly contaminated with the primary and elementary rudiments of music. With these few sanguinary remarks we will not proceed to diagnosticate the exercises of the evening hour. Please turn to page thirty-four of the Southern Harmony. (And we turned.) You will discover that this beautiful piece of music is written in four-four time, beginning on the downward beat. Now, take the sound — sol-mi-do. All in unison one, two, three, sing! " Sol-sol-mi-fa-slo-la-ti-sol-fa-ra-ra-ra. " — From Bob Taylor.

They were given that paternal welcome and the fatted calf was prepared. Home Coming Day will not be the least memorable day in this year ' s his- tory, — in fact it was quite a happy day. Many former students returned to spend a while in pleasant memories and in meeting new friends and old. The day ' s program began at the chapel hour when the following pro- gram was delightfully rendered for an appreciative audience, Mr. Martin acting as chairman : " Auld Lang Syne " Orchestra — Audience " One Land United " Glee Clubs " Arkansas " Audience Welcome Address Mr. Whitsitt Response ....Doss Thorn Piano Solo Margaret Malone Reading Glenda Liddell Vocal Solo Stanley Sloan Alumni Letters Mr. Martin Vocal Solo Amma Mathews Talks by former students. After the program luncheon was served in the dining hall of the Y. M. C. A. for visiting students and alumni. The hall was decorated in the school colors, red and black. The visitors occupied the center tables and a beautifully appointed luncheon was faultlessly served under Mrs. Warr ' s able direction. At one o ' clock the first annual meeting of the Aggie Alumni Associa- tion since its organization last May convened. During the afternoon the Alumni-Varsity football game was played. Many former students were back for the day and we hope to see ' all of them here for our greater Home- coming this year.

The lighting and various stage effects were very beautiful and the scenery was a credit to professionals. The play began with an interpretative Christmas dance, given by six beautiful girls dressed in pink and blue with shining tinsel. Just as soon as they posed in their positions, little Patricia Patasky rendered a solo dance, which was immediately encored. After a few moments ' interval all the lights of the house were turned off, and when they were turned on again, everyone was surprised to see an angel had fluttered downward from Heaven, carrying a wee, tiny baby. The angel told all about the baby, how as a little bird she had flut- tered down from her heavenly home and was now searching for an earthly home. The little baby was no other than Carol Bird, and was the heroine of the play. The first act was interspersed with pathos and humor, and when the curtain fell, everyone was eager to know if the cranky and selfish father would allow the dear little Carol to bring happiness to the Ruggles family. Many hearts were touched, and some tears were in evidence when the play ended with the coming of a little angel who took Carol ' s crutch and flew away with it. Much credit was due the expression class and Miss Deal, in produc- ing this play. The audience was never bored nor tired. During the in- termissions, Misses Florine and Leona Keich delighted the audience with several musical numbers, Miss Leona at the piano and Miss Florine whistling.

The many friends of Miss Winchell were delight- ed to hear that she had been chosen as one of the seven beauties of the State, from numerous pictures which were sent in. The queen was to be chosen from the seven beauties and the remain- ing six were to be maids of honor. It was an honor to be chosen as one of the seven, but friends of the beauty were sure that she would be selected as the crowning beauty and none were disap- pointed, for the same entrancing smile which caused her to win in the beauty contest also won the title of queen for Miss Lucille. The Arkansas Democrat describes Queen Lucille as a captivating little beauty with curly bobbed hair, large appealing brown eyes and peach blos- som complexion. Unaffected and com- posed, she displays a poise that is not often found in a girl of seventeen. Those of us who know Lucille realize that a truer or better description could not be made. She is all that they say and Aggie is proud to claim her as one of its students. The fair has gone down in history as the best ever given, and we are sure that the queen who represented the State was not only the most beautiful who has ever reigned, but the most popular as well. It must be said that the six maids who attended the queen were all worthy rivals for the honor. Robed in their regal costumes and carrying beautiful bou- quets of flowers, they made a picture of rare beauty. Without a doubt Queen Lucille did herself, family, school, city and state a great credit. We are indeed proud of her.

Charlie played his second year of college foot- ball. As a field general Charles was hard to beat, he was fast as a heady player and an excellent safety man, always cool under the heaviest fire; one of the best punters in the state. He will be lost by graduation. GLEN YATES, Mascot " Massey " is a great favorite among the students and is always ready to help where there is work to be done. He is g-eneral care-taker of all athletic equip- ment. No doubt he will be all-state se- lection for Mascot. FRED PALMER, Captain Elect 1921 Quarter and Half Fred was an excellent back field man and his ability to play any position in the back field was a great help to his team. His defensive work was the out- standing ' feature of the season. c.iiUiiMiniiiiiiiiriiiiiiiiMniiiiiiiiHiilliniiitiiiiMHiniiuiniiiiiHiliililliuiiiHiiiliiiinM One hundred fourteen ■ IHIMtlMTMIIIMIUMMIIJIMIIIMMIMMIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIMIMMIMIIJMIinilllllllllMlllMIMIIIllirh JilllltlllMMIIIIIMIIIMIimillllinilMMtlll IMIMMIMMIIIIUIIIIIUIIIII The yearling IMIIIIIMUIIIIIIIIIMIIIUIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIHIIIIIMI ' MIIIMMII ' i FOOTBALL JAMES YOUNG, Guard This was Jim ' s first year on the Var- sity squad and he did fine work.

His best traits are to break up the team play of the opposition. We expect to see " Old Gil " back in uniform next year. LORAN ROBINSON, Half " Uncle D " was always the happiest when his face was covered with mud and in a football uniform. Loran was one of the fastest men in uniform and he backed up the line in fine shape. Loran is the type of football player that always puts out his best. He will be back next year. r.lltllllllllllllllflllllllllllllllllllllHIMIIHIIIIMIIIIIIIIIMIllllllllllllllllllllllHIIIIIIIIIIH 11 Mil II -J " llllilll 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 mi mi innilimiiniinillinill lill.i One hundred fifteen FOOTBALL ZEKE LOHMAN, End Zeke hails from the Capitol City. He was one of the most aggressive players on the squad, always fighting from start to finish. Although playing his first year of college football, he worked like a vet- eran, and seldom was his outpost ever skirted. Zeke will be with us again next season. LEM DANNER, Tackle Lem is of that stocky type that makes the ideal linesman and the boy from Clarkesdale was true to type. Lem took part in every game and was always a hard worker and never gave up. He was a steady, consistent fighter, and a great force on the offense and a bulwark on the defense. We expect great things of him next year. OREL OLDHAM, Center Oldham has the very best physical make-up which a man in the center po- sition should have. His grit and deter- mination were his greatest attributes. He was a terror on the defense to the best of teams and broke up many plays be- hind the line of scrimmage. Okel was one of the main cogs in the strong de- fense that Coach Dandelet had built. He will be back with us again next year. r.iiuMtiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiHiiiiiiiiiiriiiitiiiii iiiiMiitiiiiiiiiiniiiimmmiiiiiiiiiiuiimitii One hundred sixteen ' f er-i U UlltMIMUIIIIinUMIIMnilllMnilllfllMIIIIIIIIIIIIIllMIMIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIUIIIIIMIIIIIIMIn I UnilltinilMlllllllllllllllllinnilHIIIMIItllllMIIHMllllHIIIMIIMIItllilllll The yearling iiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiniHiiimiHiHiiiiiniiiiiiiiHiiiiiifiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii £ FOOTBALL KELLY BALLVILLE, Half Kelly was the fastest man on the squad and was a terror when in the open. His open field running was the best seen by any back on the local gridiron. We ex- pect great things of Kelly next year. BYRON GOAD, Guard Goad is a natural lineman and his work was sensational from the first of the season. Always fighting from start to finish the word quit was not in his vocabulary. Tubby has three more years at Aggie and we are expecting great things of him. FROST SORRELL, Tackle Jack was a new comer to Aggie and his great work at tackle the past season gives promise to an ALL STATE se- lection next year. Frost, quiet and un- assuming, is the vamp of the athletes. He was one of the most consistent play- ers ever seen in action, and at all times his work was of the highest type. r.iiiiiiMiiHiliiiliiilillilliiiiiMtiiiiiiiiH mini iiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimi 0- IIMnMMtllHlliriUlllHIHinillllllillMHIIIIIMIIIIUIIIIIItlHllllllllllllllllMllltMllllllMIIII.1 One hundred seventeen JiHIlltllMlinilllllllllllllllllUIIUIIIIIIII [IIIMt III 111 lllllllllllllllllllll till The yearling IIIIIIIIMIIIIHIIIHMIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIinill|ll IIUHIIIIIIIIIII!IIMIIIIIIIIIIIIII ' i FOOTBALL CECIL BAINE, Tackle Cecil hails from Paragould, the city of football players. He was one of the best men on the defense of the team and we are expecting great things of him next year. B. F. COLE, Guard B. F. played his first year of college football this year and was the heaviest man on the squad. He was one of the most dependable linemen on the local gridiron this year. B. F. has three more years at Aggie and is in line for the hall of fame. FRANK McCARTNEY, End " Mac " was the running mate to Zeke and performed in brilliant style all sea- son. It was at Monticello that Frank showed his metal. He was one of the best ends in the state and could hook a pass at any angle. He is noted for bis aggressiveness and keeps the team on the jump at all times. Mac expects to be with us again next year. VANCE FENDER, Full Back Vance was the smallest man on the team and yet could hit the line like a veteran. His ability to judge plays made him a very valuable man on the defense. Vance has three more years in school at Aggie and we are sure that he will give a good account of himself. =.IIIIIUIMIIIIIItlllllli1IIIHIIIIIIIUIIHIinilllllllHimilllllllMUIIIIUMllllllMIIIHIIIIIIMMM One hundred eighteen 0- IIIIIIMIHIIIHIIHIIIMIIIIIIillllHIIIIUMIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIinilllllllllllllllllHIIIHiniHItflllll? -jiiiiiiiiniiiiiitiiiiiiiiniiiiniitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitHiiiiMHiiiiHiiM The yearling MMIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIMIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIII1I1IIIIIIIII iniiiHiMimi i mining AGGIE SECONDS PLAY VICTORIOUS SEASON The Aggie seconds had one of the most successful football teams in the history of the school. Most of the credit is due to Coach Schwartz, as he started with exceptionally inexperienced men and by the time the season was well started, he had rounded them into as good a football team as any high school in the state. He also developed some good material for next year ' s Varsity Team. Harry Johnson of Walnut Ridge, captained the team and played quarter-back. He was a capable leader as well as a good field general. Byrd and Roddy were as good as any high school tackles in the state. Braden, at half, Irwin at full-back, and Camp at end, also, deserve special .IIIIIIMIIIIUIIIIIMUIIiniinilllUIIHIIHIIIIIIIItllllltllMIIIIMIIIIMIMIIIIUIMIMIIIIIIMMIII IIIIIHIIIIHIIIIIII1IIIIIIIIIHIHIIIIIIII1IIHIIIII1III1IIIIMII1IMIIIIII1II1II1IMIMIHI1IIHIIIIIIII,1 One hundred nineteen illlllllltllMIIMHIIlllllMlllllllllllliniMIIIIIIHMHMIIIIIMIIHtlllllllllllUII The Tjearling i iiiiMiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiniiHiiniiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiitiiiHiiiiiiiiMHig mention. The following men were on the second team squad: McCartney and Camp, ends; Roddy and Byrd, tackles; Wallin and Williams, L., guards; R. Williams, center; Norris and Braden, halfbacks; Irwin, full- back; Capt. Johnson, quarter-back; Jeter, Lyons and Lewis, subs. The team won two games, lost two and tied one. They scored 25 points and had 25 points scored against them. The first game was played with Harrisburg High School at Harrisburg. The score was 6-0 in favor of Harrisburg. the only touch-down being scored on a fumble. The second game was played at Walnut Ridge, with the Walnut Ridge High School. This game also resulted in a 6-0 defeat for the seconds, this time by an intercepted forward pass. Johnson and Norris did the best playing on both the offense and defense, Norris getting away for a 40-yard gain around the end. The next game was played at Aggie with Harrisburg High School. This time the seconds got revenge for the defeat handed them earlier in the season. The result was 13-7 in favor of the Aggies. R. Williams and Johnson were outstanding, Williams recovering a fumble and scoring the first touchdown. Braden rammed the line for consistent gains and scored the other touchdown. Johnson ' s punting was far superior to his op- ponents and averaged 40 yards. The Newport High School furnished the opposition for the next game. The game was played at Newport and resulted in a 6-6 tie. The playing of Johnson and Camp stood out in this game. Camp scored the touchdown after he and Johnson had alternated in bringing it down the field. The next game was played at Pocahontas High School. The game was played on a very muddy field. The seconds scored one touchdown which was enough to win the game. The second ' s goal was never in dan- ger. Johnson scored the touchdown, but failed to make the extra point. i S ElllllllllllllllnlllllllllllHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIIHIIIIIIIUIIIUIHIUIIIillUllilllltIMM One hundred twenty riiniMiiiiHHiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiimiiimiiniiiiiimiiiiiiniiiiiimiiuiiiiiiwiiiiiHHinfiiiil THE AGGIE BASKET BALL VARSITY OKEL OLDHAM Forward Okel was the only man of last year ' s team to appear this season and consequently the team was largely developed around him.

To see Charlie play was a real treat. His speed and his abil- ity to shoot from all positions prov- ed him to be one of the most valu- able men on the squad. Forward and Guard Vance was one of last year ' s sec- onds to make the grade this year, Black John was always ready when called on and alwa ys displayed real basket ball playing. LORAN ROBINSON Guard Loran was unable to play last season, due to football injuries, but his playing this season made up for his absence last season. Loran was the quickest breaker on the team and his man was seldom permitted to take a shot. RUSSELL DAY Guard Russell was the selection for standing guard, and due to his height and close guarding the op- position seldom got over one shot, Russell was not of the spectacular type, but steady, consistent play- ing was always noticeable. HILLERY HEARD Center " Hiliarious " played his first year at Aggie. He is a terror on de- fense and a sure shot when his time comes to shoot. Hillery is an ideal basket ball type, his long- slender muscles making him the smoothest worker on the team. THE TEAM MISS MAE NICHOLS Captain and Forward Miss Nichols played her third year at Aggie ; each year she has captained her team and through her leadership the team has been a winner. Miss Nichols always carries her smile on the court, and her playing ranks her as one of the best girl basket ball players ever produced by Aggie. MISS VIRGINIA WEBB Running Center Miss Webb played her first year on the Varsity and " Squaby " was a very formidable opponent for any girl. Miss Webb played the court unusually well, and her fight- ing throughout the entire game saved many goals from the oppon- ents. r.llUHIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIlllllllllIIIIIIMIIMHIIHIIIIIIIIMIIUIMIItUUIlllllllllllllHllllllltltllllU llllllllllinitllllllHIIUIIIIIIIIllltlllllMIIIIIIIIIIIIHMIHIIIIUIIIIIIIIIIIHHUIIMItUHIHIIHkl I One hundred twenty-five The " yearling MISS JEWELL SMITH Running Center and Guard Miss Smith played her first bas- ketball for Aggie. She came to us from Truman. Miss Smith ' s abil- ity to gain possession and pass the ball were the outstanding features of her playing. Miss Smith has three more years at Aggie. MISS MARIE HOGUE Guard Miss Hogue played her third year for Aggie and she has devel- oped into probably the best guard in the state. It was due to Miss Hogue ' s ability to guard that all the famous forwards of other teams failed to live up to their rep- utations. MISS MILDRED WHITAKER Forward Miss Whitaker played her third year for Aggie and her accuracy in shooting from any angle, and her ability to drop a guard ac- counted for a great percentage of Aggies points. Miss Whitaker will be back next year to hold up her banner. MISS MARGARET YOUNG Jumping Center Miss Young played her first year on the Aggie Varsity and her play- ing stamps her as the coming bas- ket ball player at Aggie. Very few centers could even occasionally get the top off against Miss Young and her true passing accounted for many of Aggie ' s goals. MISS EDNA EVANS Guard Miss Evans came to us from Biggers and her coming was a blessing to the team. Her consist- ent playing and her sportsmanship marks her as one of the best guards ever to play on the Aggie court. MISS MARGARET CARMICAL Coach Miss Carmical came to Aggie from Kingsland, Arkansas. She took a special course in coaching at Peabody and this year ' s Varsity was very much benefited by it. Miss Carmical readily won all the players with her charming person- ality and by her hearty co-opera- tion ; a winning team has been pro- duced.

We are making the very most of cur Gym classes and we enjoy them. Day by day we have improved in our exercises. Our knees don ' t pop so loudly as they did the first week we were on the floor. The underweights are gaining and the over-weights are losing. Both the boys and the girls play games during part of the period, and it is great sport to see the en- thusiasm displayed by the various teams. In these classes, some hither- to-fore hidden athletic material has been discovered and brought out.

The entire squad was made up of " rookies, " many of them playing their first real baseball game. The team came through with a percentage of .500 which was exceptionally good considering the short season and the handicap of no old material to overcome. The strong Arkansas nine was picked for the first two games. Al- though these two games were lost, it was by a very close score. The next games, a series of four games with West Tennessee Normal ended in a tie; Aggie winning one here and one on the Tennessee field. The last game of the season was played with the Jonesboro Zebras. Aggie won this contest by a decisive score. The coming season looks very bright indeed. The annexation of several new outfielders from independent teams and several good high school ball players will make a very strong team for Aggie. The pitching staff is exceptionally good with the addition of several high school stars. The remainder of the team will be college players of the highest type and Aggie is anxiously awaiting the opening of the 1924 baseball season. At least seventy-five men are expected to come out. = 111 mm iimmmii immtmimmimiimmmmiuimiiiniiimiHHim Vlll1MltlltllMllllfllll|[|lll1linMi;illMlllllllll1IIIIIIHIMIIIII1IUIIHIIIIIIH1lllllll1IIIIIIIIIIIA One hundred twenty- nine THE TEAM Aggie ' s baseball team of ' 23 was made up of new men ; the catcher, Captain Red Thompson, was the only veteran on the club. His ability to run the team was the best ever displayed by any catcher on Kays Field. His understudy, Jimmy Young, was a consistent pupil, always willing to learn and always ready to deliver the goods when called upon. The pitchers, Schwartz, Wallin and Day, did not get into their best form until the season was almost through. The same men will be back to form the nucleus of a staff for ' 24. The infield, Loran Day first base, Oldham second base, Danner short, Russell Day third base, were probably the strongest infield to represent Aggie in many years. All these men will be back for ' 24 and they will be hard to beat out of their places. The outfield, Hamilton, Fender and Schoffner, were probably the strongest part of the team and seldom permitted a hit to go astray in their territory. Emerson Taylor, Gilbert Taylor and Jimmie Young were utility men, and each one will bid strong for a regular berth in the 1924 line-up. iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiHiiitiiiiiiiiHitiiiiiiimiiiii The yearling ' linilllti1lll!ilM1lMI1IlnillMUI!l1ltlllMMIH1IIIIIMIIHII1|lllllllfllllMIIII ' _ Book VII. ijllllllIllliniHIIIIllMIIIIIIIIIIIIUIIIllllllIllllllUIIIIIIIIIMIIIllllllltlllUll!

" Money-making farms are those on which most work is done in the least time, with least labor. Try to increase your crop yield per acre, cut clown your labor cost, di- versify.

If the Crane name today has a grateful meaning for architects, builders, plumb- ing contractors and all those for whom they build , it is because Crane engineers and designers are able to draw upon these years of informing experience to guide them in creating better and more effec- tive valves, fittings and fixtures of every sort for both domestic and industrial use. In sanitary and heating materials for the home, Crane provides for the wants of small dwellings as carefully as for the requirements of great town and country houses, hotels, apartments and clubs.
