M. College into a school which is exerting a powerful influence in and beyond the limits of the State, we appreciate more and more the merit and ability of our President, Mr. Kays. Since his call to the presidency soon after the establishment of the school in 1911, he has given himself without stint to the development of a carefully arranged and ably developed program which reflects his ability as a con- structive administrator and a progressive edu- cator. Not only has he built up in a comparatively short time an institution which we may be proud to call our Alma Mater, but also he exerts a potent influence upon the students by living the things for which educational culture stands.

Baird College Engineering and Mathematics Page twenty-five Page twenty-six Slumnt An Alumni Association is practically the only thing that is capable of linking the graduate to his Alma Mater. Indeed, through the Alumni Association old school chums may meet again and indulge in treasured conversation. Through the As- sociation, an atmosphere is created wherein each and every mem- ber is made to feel that he is actually keeping up with the pro- gress of his school. Too often, when a person graduates, he feels that he is to fall by the wayside along with the others and is to have nothing whatever in common with school. He is just out of it— that is all. In the last few years, the A. M. Alumni Association has become more aggregated, more active than ever before. Any one witnessing the 1925 Alumni Banquet given during commence- Page twenty-seven ment week could not fail but note the splendid improvement made over the one the year before. Old Alumni members were present. Representatives of a good many states were glad to get back to plain Ole ' Aggie. Mr. Bill Alsopp of Little Rock, Arkansas, in order to reach the banquet in time to act as official toast master, drove all night long accompanied by another alumni member, Mr. Foy Hammons. Then, in order to get back to his work in due time, he drove back the night of the banquet. Such loyalty speaks well for any organization. Such loyalty will build a school. A. M. is proud of her Alumni Association. She is watching her children with interest and with the highest of hopes. Already she can see the results of her careful training. One of her most brilliant geniuses, Miss Bernice Turner, now resides in San Diego, California. Miss Turner holds a very responsible position as designer for one of the largest stores of the city. We have recently heard that Bernice has a most thrilling romance ! ! Write her and ask about it. Mr. Troy Martin and Mr. Homer McKewen came back. They are now two of Aggie ' s most dignified and esteemed instructors. Miss Margaret Malone has blossomed out into a full-fledged teacher in Wilson, Arkansas. Mr. Fred Caldwell is one of Standard Oil ' s most valuable men. Mr. Foy Hammons is " Coach " of that " famous Pine Bluff football team. " Without exception the Alumni Association has some of the finest and best working young people of the State. Our Presi- dent, Horace Thompson, is in Fayettville attending State Uni- versity while Miss Alta Mover, Secretary and Treasurer, is librarian at A. M. College, Jonesboro, Arkansas. Most of the Alumni have responsible positions as teachers, others more responsibility as mothers and fathers, while still others are working diligently for their respective degrees. Truly A. M. ' s Alumni Association will gain a name for it- self through the wonderful achievements of its many members. Page twenty-eight -College Pernor Motto — " The thrall in person may be free in soul.

Page sixty The citadel of all education is built on a literary foundation. It makes no difference what specialization one would make, a prerequisite is a general high school training. A Doctor or dentist without it would prove dangerous ; a lawyer would lose (if he ever gained it) his fluency ; a merchant would remain a small town man ; while the farmer would in all probability raise his cotton, pigs, and children and prove to be a failure in the long run. History, Literature, Science, and Mathematics rule the world. To become famous, or even successful, one must court these literary subjects. One must have a close, and earnest association with them, and then, when a knowledge of liberal arts is gained one may step out into the world rejoicing for it can truthfully be said that " He who hath knowledge hath power. " Page sixty-one Jftne arts " Over his keys the musing organist, Beginning doubtfully and far away, First lets his fingers wander as they list, And build a bridge from Dreamland for his lay. Then, as the touch of loved instrument Gives hope and fervor, nearer draws his theme, First guessed by faint auroral flushes sent Along the wavering vista of his dream. " — Lowell. The banker is all business. The lawyer is all politics. The doctor deals with the ills and pains of life. In fact almost every professional worker that can be named thinks and talks in the most practical terms. Nevertheless, there is a certain class that forgets the drab, sordid, everyday affairs and lives in the land of fancy. The artist, the poet, the dramatist, the musician, all live in the land of dreams. If one could only peep into the hidden recesses of their souls, this thing would be confirmed. It would be seen that theirs is a life of contentment, a rosy tinted dream of love, romance, and peace. These few who are blessed with earth ' s rarest gifts live in a land of their own creation. They care not so much for the companionship of humans but yearn for solitude and their special art. We ordinary people who do not know much about Fine Arts stand in Pai e sixty-two awe of those who love their art. We grasp the fact that although these people are dreamers they are the builders of the nation and have been so from the beginning of time. When we stop to think we find that music and art are found every- where. The lover woos his maid by the dreamy serenades ; the mother rocks her babe to rest to the soothing lullaby while father marches to battle to the strain of the international war songs and marches. Music constitutes one of the most valuable parts of the services of the church. As is always quoted, " Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast. " Those whose tribulations are not helped by music perhaps find con- solation from the art masterpieces of the world. Any one seeing Raphael ' s " Madonna " or Whistler ' s " Mother " could not for long harden his heart against the softer influence and appeal of Beauty. So, although, we do not quite understand these temperamental people and fail to see visions as they do, we must not lose sight of the big con- tributions they have made to the world. We must not envy them either. It is not given to all to be visionary. There must still remain the staid, practical folks with firm business-like ideas. We should be happy that in A. M. a love of beauty and art is so felt and recognized that a place is given to it in Department of " Fine Arts. " Page sixty-three J|ome €conomtc£ The life, the hopes, the ambitions and the happiness of all the Homemakers are measured by the success of Home Eco- nomics. Until recent years this science was an undeveloped and un- appreciated one. Though Home Economics may not be learned in the classroom, but in the school and everyday life ; not taught by trained instructors, but by life ' s hard taskmaster it is an essen- tial science ; therefore, the demand for training in Home Eco- nomics in the schools is growing more urgent. The Home Economics Department is keeping pace with this demand. It developes young women as home-makers, teachers, dietitians, and useful, healthful, and cheerful citizens by giving them training in Home Economics. It is a vital phase of the lives of the young women, teaching them the science of right living, not merely the mechanical pro- cesses of cooking and sewing. The department loves its useful and practical work, inculates the ideals of usefulness so neces- sary to the happiness of our young women. Page sixty-four Page sixty-five !HgricuIture " The farm is the peculiar and age old meeting ground of business and home. The ultimate goal in farming is to obtain a return which will enable farmers to build up a satisfactory farm life and at the same time maintain our agricultural production in a prosperous and healthy balance with the rest of the world ' s eco- nomic activities. As is true in every field of human endeavor, a profitable farm business is the first requisite for a rich and satisfactory rural home life. After all, one great reason for farming is the home. Some one has stated that " farming is a mode of living. " So, although we think of the farm as a business, we must also think of it as a home. Whatever success may be enjoyed in agriculture is, sooner or later, reflected in the home and those features of rural development which affect the home and home-life. Agriculture deserves the best in normal living that can be provided. This best includes a substantial home, good schools, roads, churches, and other eduactional and social facilities that are impossible of realization except through profitable agriculture. Since colonial days, the best of the ideals and dreams from which America has been fashioned have come from the tiller of the soil. He has not always been able to realize them in his own case, but he has at least kept them alive and passed them on from generation to generation. Today his chief struggle is the continued effort to bring these ideal conditions to fruition. The commercialism of agriculture makes riecessary information and abilities on the part of the farmer that were not required of our pioneer ancestors. " The above is taken from an article of Thomas Cooper ' s, Chief, Bureau of Agricultural Economics, U. S. Department of Agriculture, for the rea- son that we feel that Mr. Cooper has so aptly explained the ideals and aims of A. M. College ' s Department of Agriculture. This new generation engrossed in " jazz " and " thrills " has lost sight of the cleaner and more " sublime life " that may be found at home on the farm. It forgets that these same pleasures may be provided through the medium of the radio, automobiles, and good roads. Aggie constantly seeks to show her student that a real home can be found in the farm. With the training that A. M. offers, the future farmer is learning to keep his farm in a systematic and scientific manner. Page sixty-six (Engineering The Engineering Department at the A. M. College was originated as the Department of Agricultural Engineering and that is still one of its primary func- tions. As an Agricultural Engineering Department it aids in the building up of a prosperous Agricultural Course in Farm Machinery, Farm Motors, Farm Drainage, and Farm Building are offered to the Col- lege students and the shop classes for the student of High School age. If the Agricultural Engineering Department can train students who will go back to the farm and make it both pros- perous and pleasant, it has done much for the agricultural interest of this state. In the last few years a general Engineering course has been estab- lished here. The curricula for all Engineering students at the large uni- versities is almost the same for all Engineering students and it is this first two years work that is offered here. The courses are closely correlated with those at the university of Arkansas and students will not lose credit in the transfering to other schools. The school is very well equipped to handle the students. The Forge Shop, Wood Shop, and Machine Shop are always places of interest be- cause it is there that the work of the students shows in its most concrete form. The courses offered are the various shop courses Mathematics, Physics, Surveying, and the elements of Mechanical and Electrical En- gineering. In the High School work courses are offered in Drawing and in shop work. Students are taught the correct use of both power and hand tool. Most of the projects are projects that the boys make for themselves and some very creditable work is done in these shop classes. In addition to this the Engineering Department does its share in the design, laying out, and erection of new buildings and equipment and the various other engineering work that comes up in the work of the college. Page sixty-eight pusrtne££ gbtmntetration Won ' t you come in and spend a day in Room 25a and Room 25b ? We folks in the Commercial Department will be glad to have you for a visitor, and perhaps you ' ll like us and our ways well enough to come back with us, too. You ' ll find Room 25a on the west side of the main building just across the hall from the auditorium. The door will be open, and you may walk right into our typewriting laboratory. There you ' ll find fourteen standard typewriters, with a very alert student working at every machine. If you ' ll walk up and look at one of the machines closely, you ' ll see that all the keys are blanked — there are no letters on them. But that doesn ' t bother our typists in the least, because they all type by " touch " and their fingers " know " where the letters are without looking to see them. Over in one corner of the room, you ' ll see a Victrola. You may think that is a little strange, but when you hear and see fourteen students, at fourteen type- writers, keeping perfect time with the rhythm of a tune, such as Sousa ' s " Stars and Stripes Forever " , played on the victrola, you ' ll understand that typing to music is not only the pleasantest way to learn accuracy in the use of one ' s typewriter, but it developes speed, as well. Then, you ' ll like to visit our bookkeeping laboratory, won ' t you? It is next door to the typewriting room. The bookkeeping room is a large southwest corner room with plenty of large windows which save our book- keepers from suffering from eye-strain. You ' ll see, in addition to the bookkeeping desks and their busy occupants, two standard adding ma- chines, a calculator, and an electric posting machine. Then you ' ll know that the Agricultural and Mechanical College has spared no expense in giving the Commercial Department the very best of laboratory equip- ment. And the bright faces of the students, and the business-like atmos- phere of the place will convince you that the equipment is being used to the very best advantage, and you may expect to see some of our students as leaders in the world of commerce and business, in the years to come. Page seventy Jfort mu One very sunny morning in July, a Cotton Belt passenger train with two special Pullmans and a baggage car annexed, steamed out of Jonesboro. These three special coaches bore the famous Battery C, of the 206th Coast Artillery. These young citi- zen soldiers had left the cotton fields, their places behind the counters and various othei 1 positions in the industrial world, and were going forth to enjoy a very instruc- tive and pleasant vacation at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, to breath, for a change, the Oklahoma atmosphere, spiced with the fumes of the faithful ' 75, which was destined to make the best record of any ' of its sisters out there during the encampment. The trip was very enjoyable and the coaches rang with manly laughter and echoed with hilarity. Other coaches had been added to the original three as other detachments were picked up and it became in due time a lengthy and thoroughly military train. Soon the youthful appetites asserted themselves and were appeased very pleasingly by ' a very delicious repast at the Capitol city. For the rest of the trip very tempting ham sandwiches and appetizing beans were all the go. After the train left the fair city of Fort Smith the calm shades of twilight fell and the copper colored Oklahoma moon came up after the Arkansas sun had bid " bon voyage. " Three buck privates were sitting in the baggage car door with their feet dangling. As they were observing with admiration the splendor of the majestic moon, they would chat and tell stories. Bedtime came, and after having been rocked to a restful slumber by the lulling motion of the train the young soldiers arose refreshed and gazed out over rolling prairies. Soon the train pulled into Fort Sill and big army trucks were filled with eager lads ready ' for the final touch of their military experience for the year. After a ride of a mile and a half, a long avenue of messhouses greeted their eyes and behind these structures a tented city sprang up. Then began the two weeks of military life, reveille, calisthenics, guard duty, guard mount, regimental parade, retreat, reviews and inspections of various kinds, too numerous to mention. One very interesting part of the day ' s program was going out on the range and shooting the ' 75, that organ of the battery which was to it the same as the triocysts on a Parmecium. The gun shy lads soon overcame their coyness around that baby ' as they dotted the azure blue of the sky with puffs of smoke. The husky gun crew that fed her the shells was the pride of the entire 205th. But while commenting on their efficiency, it would be well to say something about that heroic crew manning the pots and pans and keeping up the fire in the cuisine, cooking the savory beans, those vitamine lozenges, which are the mainstays of military and school life. Truly the valorous kitchen police, who so dexterously with their ladles shoved the beans to the hungry soldiers are as deserving of praise as the gallant gun crew who shoved the shells to the ' 75. Also it behooves me to say thai the cool draughts of iced tea were certainly a good solvent for those beans. Of course, other tempting viands were served, such as the proverbial prune famed in song and story. A balanced ration was always provided bv our good mess sergeant and his staff. By no means was all work the program. There was much sight seeing and pleasant diversions. There was a beautiful pleasure resort, Medicine Park, to visit. The Army Y. M. C. A. was a very pleasant place in which to read, write letters, play games, talk and be entertained with good programs. The city of Lawton was lovely and easily accessible by an electric tramway. The ladies in Lawton were even as good looking as those on the Aggie campus which is saying a great deal. Before it was hardly conceivable, the bugle blew the signal Break-Camp — and in one grand flop the canvas city collapsed. Then the khaki lads were marching home — down to the train. All had had a wonderful time but were pleased to get back home again. That is, all but one or two, who rather liked the country and wanted to stay another fifteen days. A very delightful trip was had on the way back to Ar- kansas and all felt enriched, not only financially, but physically, morally, mentally and socially. Page seventy-one $f)j £tcal €bucatton The Department of Physical Educa- tion is one of the best Departments in A. M. College. The first year of the establishment of this department its only equipment was the gym. Now, there is the piano, shower rooms, dressing rooms, lockers, dumb- bells, indian clubs, marching-sticks, new basket balls, and even jumping ropes. The chief aim is to correct the minor defects of the students. It is realized, also, that the average working student has very little time for healthy outdoor exercise, so it is given to them in the gymnasium. They are put through rigid marching, drills, and corrective exercises. Then comes playtime. All sorts of games are engaged in, such as, relay races and " Turtle " . Those students, who fear that they have taken on a little surplus avoirdupois, are given ample opportunity of losing it by " jumping rope. " One need not think that exams are dispensed with in this haven of recreation. Indeed, they are not. Each student must give a command or a drill and it is quite interesting to note how around examination time each and everyone has acquired a special command ! The participants in the Physical Education Department do not realize that they are building up strong bodies and thence, strong minds. Neither do they realize that some day they may be called upon to teach others how to become strong and how to keep their bodies fit. We are glad that it is our privilege to have such a department. It is even with pride that we see one of those boys or girls who entered school hollow chested, dull eyed and listless, now marching down the hall like a soldier — heads up, shoulders back, bright-eyed, and wide awake. When we see such improvement we wonder if Physical Education has accomplished the same, if not more, for all of us. Page xeceniy-two Page seventy-th ree €bucation Thorndike says, " Education as a whole should make human beings wish each other well, should increase the sum of human happiness and energy, and decrease the sum of discomfort of the human beings that are or will be, and should foster the higher impersonal pleasures. These aims of education in general — good will to men, useful and happy lives, and noble enjoyment — are the ultimate aims of education. " Our Department of Education has enjoyed a very remark- able year of success. It will, this year, confer its first L. I. degree, and shall crown this year ' s success with a goodly number next year. In years to come when Arkansas shall have attained her rightful place in the educational world, and when she has become a leader and not a follower among her sister states, we who are now here and know the conditions, shall know that a great part of this wonderful development has been due to the faithful and conscientious work of our Department of Education in training young teachers for their life ' s work of converting the populace to the true aims and ends of education. $re=jWebtc All standard medical schools now require a minimum of two years of college work for entrance. The purpose of the Pre-Medic Course offered by the State College is to fill their requirements. Many medical schools now require additional work, however, the work given here will fulfill the requirements to enter the Uni- versity of Arkansas College of Medicine. The secondary purpose of the course is not only to fulfill the requirements to enter Medical College, but to promote interest in all branches of medicine and science. e seventy-four Page seventy-five t Jfyilocatrian iUtrrarp ocietp FIRST TERM Frank Falls President Neva Tate Secretary and Treasurer SECOND TERM Flora Cox President Sarah Nance Secretary and Treasurer Mrs. H.

Here at Aggie, we are proud of the athletic victories that have come to us; we recognize the signal honors conferred upon certain talented musicians; we have wit nessed, repeatedly, the display of exceptional dramatic ability in our student body, in fact, thei-e have been countless occasions for such observations as those mentioned. There is, perhaps, no other of our organizations which has been more successful than the Debating Society. For three years, it has been its custom to meet the debat- ing team of West Tennessee Normal in Memphis. The victory in 1923 was awarded to West Tennessee Normal, while that in 1924 was given to A M College. For that reason, the debate which took place on March 27, 1925 was anticipated with more than usual interest. The question for debate was: Resolved: That the United States should join the League of Nations. The affirmative side was upheld by the A. M. College team, composed of Miss Cox and Miss Moyers, while the West Tennessee Normal defended the negative. They were represented by Miss Merdel and Miss Chapellin. After a spirited contest in which both teams showed remarkable proficiency, both in the rational sequence of their arguments and in their splendid delivery, the judges, Messrs. Basil Baker, Harry Lee Williams, and Arthur L. Adams, awarded the victory to the affirmative side. The able and efficient coaching of Mrs. Rogers and Mr. Lafferty was reflected quite plainly in the exceptional performance of their pupils. Thus it was proved again that Aggie folks, when put to the test, have a peculiar way of winning with all the ease and grace of veterans.

M. College was well represented in the music contest at the State Fair this year. The contestants in voice were John Silaz, Leota Barnett, Margaret Pittinger, Adelaide Rogers, and those in piano were Virginia Watson and Mildred Volentine. The contestants were in different classes according to their age. From their performances during chapel exercises it was apparent that their chances were indeed very good and the stu- dent body felt fortunate in having these young artists to repre- sent the school. At the contest they made a very creditable show- ing, Mr. Silaz winning a first place, Miss Barnett a first place, Miss Pittinger a third place, Miss Volentine a second place, and Miss Rogers a tie for first place. Since Mr. Silaz was the only male contestant from the A. M. College on that score he deserves a little special comment, although it would be a difficult matter to select the best artist out of this peerless group. All the contestants are fortunate in possessing such exceptional ability, as well as such pleasing per- sonalities, which, we feel sure helped them to win. The victories of our musical representatives are due as much to their superior training as to their natural genius. This credit for their training rightfully belongs to Mr. and Mrs. Schuster, our very capable musical directors, who deserve the praise for the success of these contestants. They will always have reason to value the exceptional instruction which they received in prepar- ing for the contest. Page one hundred one ®be 1925 Carmbal Aggie ' s 1925 carnival was attended by fully two thousand people. It was held in the grove just north of the boys ' dormitory and illuminated by various colored lights. Every attraction was liberally patronized and t a nice sum realized which was used in payment for publishing the Yearling. The Crowning of the Queen was the most beautiful spectacle of the two evenings when homage was paid to the Queen of the Carnival. Upon an elevated setting the central figure was the white throne, behind which stood a stately arch covered with smilax and roses. The procession led by John Johnson, Court Herald, moved to the strains of Marche Pontificale. Then came John Miller, the Court Jester, whose clever antics provided much amusement. Maxine Whitsett bore the crown upon a white satin pillow, and was followed by Mildred and Frances Berkshire who scattered rose petals in the path of the Queen. " Buddv " Kays and Billy Gwinn held the regal court train of Miss Amelia Griffin of Cardwell, Missouri, the lovely Queen of the Carnival, who entered with Dolph Smith. Mr. Smith crowned her at the steps and gave her to Stanley Sloan who was Prince Charming. Mr. Sloan was attended by John Silaz. The following members of the Royal Household formed the remainder of the procession: Miss Mae Nichols as Maid of Honor, Miss Sarah Stuck, Luby Jo Roberson, and Maurine Havnes as Ladies in Waiting. Other Lords and Ladies of the Court were Miss Helen Smith with Eddie Warner, Miss Dorothy Reel with Paul Hopkins, Miss Margaret Pittinger with Clif- ford Coffee, Miss Virginia Watson with Frank Falls, Miss Mabel McCarroll with Caleb Watson, Miss Bebe Gamble with James Rains. A solo dance by Miss Margaret Harrison, a dance by Miss Maxine Harrison and Miss Eva Dukes dressed as a boy, and a vocal solo by John Silaz constituted the program given for the Queen ' s pleasure. Other interesting features of the evenings were the Negro Minstrel, King Tutt ' s Tomb, The Queen ' s Booth, doll racks, ferris wheel, Slide for your Life, and numberless sandwich, red lemonade, and ice cold soda pop stands. One of the most novel and hithertofore new features was the giving away of prizes to those holding the lucky gate numbers. These prizes were donated to the Yearling Staff Booth by merchants of the city and were highly appreciated by all. A great deal of the success of the carnival was due to the efforts of Misses Culler, Carmical, and Rhodes, who planned and assisted in the coro- nation of the Queen ; to Mr. Baird and Mr. Eldridge, who were indispens- able as carpenters and engineers, and to Miss Barnhart who supervised the poster work in the art-room. All in all the Carnival of 1925 was the greatest success in the history of the school. Page one hundred two Page one hundred three allotoe ' en Jfroltc One of the prettiest parties of the Autumn season was given October 31 in the A. M. gymnasium when the Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. entertained with a Hallowe ' en party for the entire student body. As the guests arrived they were directed by a ghost to take hold of a rope and follow it, if in the course of time they met other ghosts they were to receive fur- ther instructions from them. From the noise and screams heard as the guests fol- lowed the rope, we judged that the ghosts managed to scare them quite enough for one evening. After reaching the end of the rope, the guests were taken into the Gym. Many exclamations of surprise and admiration escaped from the guests as they viewed the Gym. It had been turned into a land of ghosts and goblins, into which people of all types had come. In the contest for the best costume John Silaz and Hazel Glenn Smith were given the honors. During the evening a sketch on " Bluebeard " was given by Misses Smith and Thomas and Messrs. Gunter and Smith under the directions of Miss Jones. This was greatly enjoyed. Following this, Miss Jones di- rected another play, composed of famous characters, called " The Gathering of the Nuts. ' The guests were then given an opportunity to have their future read by an " Old Witch, " who proved very capable in reading the future. After several other games and contests the usual Hallowe ' en refresh- ments were served. In leaving, the guests agreed that it was quite possible for the student body to really enjoy a school party even though the student body is large. Page one himdred four $osst Office at 9. jffl. College Due to the untiring and persistent efforts of Senator T. H. Caraway, the United States Government established a Post Office at the Agricul- tural and Mechanical College under the name of State College Arkansas. The position of Post Mistress was assigned to Mrs. D. T. Rogers who is being ably assisted by Miss Mildred Cox. A more worthy and competent person could not have been found for the position. We know that the ceaseless manner in which Mrs. Rogers worked with us in the past years has caused us to work with increased and arduous zeal in our quest of knowledge. Knowing her ability, we are certain that she will be as successful a post mistress as she is a school teacher. tocfe 38arn J£urn£ The entire student body was thrown into almost a panic on Friday morning, October 16, during an electrical storm, when they learned that the large stock barn east of the administration building had been struck by lightning and was burning to the ground. All the boys, most of the men, faculty members and even some of the girls rushed to the exciting scene to help get the horses and cows out of the building and to aid in the control of the fire. They succeeded in saving all of the stock, harness, and farmer imple- ments but about one hundred tons of hay burned. The rain and the heroic work of the boys kept the other buildings near the barn from burning, although they caught fire several times. The total loss was estimated to be about eight thousand dollars and was only partly covered by insurance. This is quite a loss to the State as well as to the school and cannot be replaced until an appropriation can be received from the next State Legislature.

I ' uge one hundred six Page one hundred seven " Clarence " presenteb bp Mentor Cla £ of 1925 On Friday, March 7, under the capable direction of Miss Kathleen Pewett, the graduating classes of 1925 presented Booth Tarkington ' s comedy " Clarence " to a large and appreciative audience. The play is a representation of a present day family consisting of the father who is the president of a financial institution, a wife who is jealous of her husband, and a son who has been sent home from three schools and has fallen in love with the governess, and a daughter who is violently in love with a grass widower. Other members of the household are : the governess who has promised to stay until the daughter gets over her in- fatuation ; the housemaid, who falls in love with everybody, and the butler who loves the maid. Then there is the neighbor — a grass widower and down at the office is a very efficient private secretary. One day, there appears on the scene a returned soldier whose greatest recommendation was that he could drive mules without swearing. Miss Glen Elrod as Mrs. Martin, Mr. Wheeler ' s private Secretary, acted her part with perfect ease. Horace Thompson, as Mr. Wheeler and Miss Virginia Watson as Mrs. Wheeler made a handsome couple. Miss Helen Smith and John Miller as Sara and Bobby interpreted the part of real sister and brother to perfection. Miss Margaret Malone — Miss Penny, the governess — showed a true conception of her part. Dolph Smith in the title roll, " Clarence, " exhibited an unusual talent in portraying the various rolls of expert entomologist, returned soldier, and friend and counsellor of all. Dolph was the man for the part. Miss Elizabeth Watson as Delia, was as pretty a maid as anyone could wish for. She very soon gained the admiration of " Bobby. " Cecil Baine, as Dinwiddie, the butler, handled his part in quite a pro- fessional manner. The part of Mr. Stem, the grass widower, was quite capably imperson- ated by Bill Leach. Taken altogether a better cast for the play could not have been select- ed or a more capable director than Miss Pewett. The stage setting con- tributed greatly to the success of the play. Much of the credit for this is due Miss Edith Barnhart who had charge of the stage properties. Page one hundred eight ftlje College Class of 1926 Present " Mt£. iiumpsteab £etgff The Senior College Class of A. M. College presented " Mrs. Bump- stead Leigh, " a comedy in three acts by Harry Jones Smith at the College Auditorium, Friday night, December 11, to a capacity crowd delighted beyond expression by the splendid manner in which the members of the cast, spoke and acted their parts. This play is one of the most difficult plays ever given by amateurs in Jonesboro. The ease with which it was put over would have done credit to many professionals. The success of the play was due to both the true conception of the parts and the splendid coaching given by Miss Kathleen Pewett. Miss Pewett has done much of this work, and the artistic manner in which all acted their parts showed clearly her ability in directing this class of work. The first scene in the play was a living room in Rawson ' s Long Island country house. Act 1. Miss DeSalle and her two daughters are visiting in the Raw- son home. The purpose of the visit is to give the DeSalle ' s an opportunity to see if they care to perfect a match between Violet and Anth ony. Violet, both by actions and by words shows that she does not car for Anthony. Page one hundred vine A neighbor of the Rawsons, Mr. Leavitt, suspects through an agent in his home that the DeSalles are not of high birth, but have obtained their social position through money. Act II. The action rises easily in the second act as the plot is ad- vanced and the climax is reached when Violet tells the Rawsons that she and her family are really imposters. It is in the second act that Peter Swallow, the tombstone agent with a silver tongue, is introduced. Act III. Just when it seemed as if Mrs. DeSalle and both her daugh- ters were going to be shipped, Mrs. Bumpstead Leigh takes command. She secures the sanction of Mr. and Miss Rawson for Geoffrey Rawson and Violet. She continues her visit and Anthony finds that he has urgent business away from home. Justin Rawson, a high tempered old gentleman, Prentice Ramsey, and his blue-blooded sister, Miss Rawson, Miss Margaret Young, were all that the characters implied and acted their parts in a manner that brought applause. Stanley Sloan, in the character of Geoffrey Rawson, who prefers ranching to society, covered himself with glory. Barton Etter, as Anthony Rawson, in love with Violet DeSalle played his part well. Miss Josephine Rogers who played the character of Violet DeSalle, an English girl, visit- ing the Rawsons, looked and acted the part in a most clever and captivat- ing manner. The character of Mrs. DeSalle, who is very submissive to the wishes of her elder daughter, was in the hands of Miss Margaret Pit- tinger who acted in a manner that won the audience completely. Miss Glenda Liddell as Mrs. Bumpstead Leigh, who is typically English and carries a lorgnette, was the most difficult character of the entire cast, and her acting was as good as has been seen on a local stage by any amateur. Elton Reeves and Catherine Slaughter, as Stephen Leavitt and Mrs. Leavitt, acted their parts well. Edgar Dillon as Pete Swallow was a scream, his acting and make up being second to none in the entire cast. He is one of the cleverest characters that has ever appeared before a Jonesboro audience. Loyce Harvey as Kitson, a most dignified butler, and Miss Lucille Winchell, as Nina, a pretty housemaid did their parts in a most clever manner. Special features of the play were the pretty and attractive costumes worn by the characters, and the stage settings, furnished by Trice Brothers. Page one hundred ten Page one hundred eleven Page one hundred twelve The Forty-fifth General Assembly passed a bill providing for State owned armories. This bill provides that 845,000 will accrue each biennial period for the purpose of constructing armories for the National Guard of Arkansas. There are thirty seven units in the Arkansas National Guard and naturally each unit wanted an armory from the first appropria- tion. This appropriation is to cover a period of ten years. Each town which has a unit will be allotted §15,000 for the purpose of building an Armory, and it is believed that Armories can be built for the total num- ber of units within that length of time. The students of the Agricultural and Mechanical College, Jonesboro, Arkansas, made a special agreement with the Governor and Adjutant General to the effect that they would excavate, put in footings and foun- dation for this Armory gratis. On Au gust 29, 1925, the excavation for foundations and footing for the armory was begun. The military unit, in accordance with the agreement was to do one half of this labor, the stu- dent body was to do the other half and the girls are to raise an equivalent amount of money as that of the price of the labor given by the boys. This building is to be 205 feet wide by 166 feet long. Ample space is provided for storage of all supplies and equipment of the military unit. There will be a boy ' s gymnasium 100 feet by 65 feet and a girl ' s gym- nasium of the same dimensions. The auditorium will be 100 feet by 72 feet and will adjoin the gymnasium. Rolling partitions are provided on each side of the gymnasium, so that the entire floor space of 202 feet by 100 feet can be thrown into an auditorium which will seat approximately four thousand people. The stage for the auditorium is 50 feet wide. This building will be provided with a swimming pool, locker rooms, band room, veteran ' s room, company room, community room, property room and necessary offices. The contract for the steel for this building was let Jaunary 8, 1926. The contract for brick work was let on February 10, 1926. It is believed that this building will be ready for occupancy when school opens in August, 1926.

Page one hundred twenty Coach Schwartz Assistant Coach Barndt Football Manager Miller Cheer Leader Smith Ptu e one hundred twenty-otn jfootball tCeam BURL THOMPSON " RED " End and Tackle A man in all his dealings, well acquainted with the meaning of Sportsmanship, a four letter man in athletics, a worthy captain of Aggie ' s football team was " Red. " His ability was recognized outside of Aggie when he was given a place on the all Conference Team. OKEL OLDHAM Center Okel has been the pivot man on the A. M. football machine for the past four seasons. He is a good defensive man as well as offensive. Due to his good work he was unanimously elected Captain for ' 2G. We expect him to lead the Gorillas of ' 26 to many victories. ZEKE LOHMAN, JR. End Zeke was the running mate for Capt. " Red " Thompson and performed in the grandest style all season. He is just the physical build for an end and has taken advantage of it. It was in the game at S. P. U. that Zeke strutted his stuff. We have hopes that he will be with us again next year. Page one hundred twenty-two WM. PICKERING Quarter Back " Pick " was a fast, clean man, and had as good a head for a quarter back as any in the state. He seemed to know just what plays would work. He could tackle harder than any man on the team, because he put every ounce into the game. He will wear the " Ag- gie " colors again next year. GRADY FORI) Half Back Ford was the man that his teammates gave the name of " five yard Ford " because every time he was called on he simply couldn ' t stop with less than five yards gained. He made more touchdowns than any other man on the team. We are counting on him to carry the pigskin over many times next year. HILARY HEARD. Half Back. Heard played the game from every angle and his work on Armistice Day was of stellar quality ' . He has one more year to fight for the Red and Black. Par e one hundred twenty-three Varsitp Jf ootball Ceam JOE BOWERS Full Rack In a game he was at the height of his glory, and well deserves his letter. He was hard to tackle, and was a good man to back up the line. His defensive work was the cause of many thrilling sensations to his team- mates, his opponents and to the spectators. We are hoping that Joe will resume his career with us next year. t : £ HARRY JOHNSON Half Back Harry was little but he looked like the world war debt when it came to running back punts in the open field or skirting the wings in a brilliant end run. We are sorry that he will not be back again next year but we know he will develop into a star of high magnitude wherever he goes. LORAN D. ROBINSON Full Back " Uncle D " was a go getter. He plunged the line until the opposition whimpered from bruises and he could back up the defense equally well. We are expecting great things from this boy next year. Page one hundred twenty-four arsrttp Jfootfaall ©earn + TUBBY GOAD Guard Tubby was the largest man on the team. He was always full of " pep " and fight, and pushing the opponents for a loss seemed to be his duty, and he always performed his duties in fine shape. We know he will be back next year to help Okel, for we must beat " Ole Miss. " EDGAR DILLON Tackle " Ed " was a little man to fill the job of colle- giate t. ' .ckle, but his fight often made up for his lack in weight. He could tackle consist- ently and viciously and in a pinch could help open a hole for some member of the back- field to run plunging for several yards. OSCAR BYRD Left Guard Oscar ' s hobby was breaking up the team play of his opponents. He will be back next year and we expect great things of him. Os- car has the fight necessary for a successful guard. Page one hundred twenty -five. Vaxzitp Jf ootball ®ram LUKE BENSON Tackle Luke made his first letter in ' 19, but has not been back in school until this year. He is a hard fighter, tackles hard and fiercely. He never loses his " pep " and rough treatment serves to make him play harder. FRED HAYWOOD End When Capt. Thompson was called upon to play ' tackle, Freddie, a new, untried young- ster was called upon to fill the responsible shoes of the Captain. That he did and did it satisfactorily, can be shown by ' the number of men who failed to pass his end. Freddie is a valuable man for the future. JOHN HAIGH Guard Hallie used his head and his fighting spirit, and by hard work won a letter. He wasn ' t very large as collegiate football players go, but his " old fight " won him general recogni- tion. John has one more year to play. Page one hundred twenty-six arsttp Jfootball ©earn mm LEM DANNER Tackle Lem was what you call vicious, the most vicious man on the squad. He was a sure, hard tackier and a man who is in the fight every ' minute of play. Another year should brand him as one of the best linesmen in the State. ELMO FRENCH Center Elmo was a big- man with a perfect pass. When he was in the game the backfield knew the ball would be at the right time. Elmo will be one of the veterans for the next year. JAMES YOUNG Guard Jimmie is big and he has three years ex- perience on the A. M. Varsity. An injured knee kept him from performing at top speed through the season but he was kept ready to step into the hole of some man who weakened under the strain. A man lik.? Jimmie is valu- able to any team.

Jfootfaall Reason of 1925 The doors of the average American college have scarcely opened in the early fall before the Head Coach issues his call for football candidates and the earnest battle for places on the Varsity is on. At Aggie as else- where the greatest of all American College games has it ' s irresistible appeal and hence a casual passer-by might any afternoon have seen some fifty black jerseyed young huskies going through the serious business of learn- ing signals, punting, blocking, and all the fundamentals as well as the much beloved scrimmage. To know football is to love it, and Aggie was fortunate in having as head coach, Mr. Schwartz, who knows, and loves the game, and has the happy faculty of imparting this knowledge to his men. Page one hundred twenty-eig ht The season of 1925 was one of the most successful in several years from an Aggie viewpoint, witnessing as it did, a tie for the Conference Championship, and the defeat of our ancient rival State Teachers College and a tie game with our Northeast Arkansas rival Arkansas College. The record for the season shows a winning percentage with four victories, three defeats, and one tied. The games lost were to " Ole Miss, " Hendrix and Southwestern U, all larger schools who had the best teams of their careers. Those defeated were West Tennessee Normal, Magnolia, State Teachers, and Monticello, (the latter a forfeit). The tie game was played with Arkansas College. Taken altogether a record certain to be a source of pride to players, Coach, Faculty, Student Body and Alumni. 1925 Sept. 25— Aggie vs Ole Miss., Oxford , ...53 Oct. 9 — Aggie 19 vs W. Term.

Homer Hazel had a power- ful team with many able substitutes, a team that ranked high in the South. What chance the lighter Aggie team had went glimmering when a heavy downpour that flooded the field after ten minutes of play made our over- head attack impossible. At that point Aggie passes had put the ball on the " Ole Miss " 15 yard line. After the deluge the heavy Mississippi backs proved too weighty. Score: Aggie, 0; " Ole Miss " , 53. OCT. 9— WEST TENNESSEE NORMAL First home game and witnessed by a large crowd. Aggie romped away from Curlins men and playing a stellar game throughout were easy winners. Score: Aggie, 19; West Tenn. Normal, 0. OCT. 17— SOUTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY. Second game away from home and a tough one to lose. After leading for three quarters 6-0, a series of costly fumbles and a poor pass back cost the Aggies the game. Oldham, Center, was injured, and his place never quite filled. When South western ' s fine record, (They easily defeated Hen- derson-Brown), is considered, to have played them so close is a real achievement. Score: Aggie, 6; Southwestern U., 13. Page one hundred twenty-nine OCT. 23— HENDRIX. " Our Bugaboo " . At a loss to account for this one. Aggie played Hendrix scoreless during the first half, actually making the most first downs, but the team was sadly off during the last half and the Methodists put the game on ice. Score : Aggie, ; Hendrix, 46. OCT. 30— MAGNOLIA A. M. COLLEGE. Our sister school from down state came with a fine record from 1924, but proved no match for the Gorillas and despite their fine courageous spirit and fight, Aggie was an easy victor. The home team played a splen- did game in all departments. Score: Aggie, 27; Magnolia A. M., 0. NOV. 11— STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE Homecoming, Armistice Day, and State Teachers ! A great day and a worthy foe. Our most important game. And how those Gorillas did go! Aggie showed superiority in all departments from Battering Ram Ford, and fierce tackling Thompson to cool Field General Pick. There were anxious moments until the final whistle found a clean fought game safely tucked away. Score: Aggie, 12; State Teachers, 6. NOV. 20— MONTICELLO A. M. This game was taken via the forfeit route. Monticello found itself unable to entertain the Aggies there as per contract and forfeited 1-0. It is safe to say in all fairness to all concerned on comparative scores that Varsity was several touchdowns stronger and would have won handily. Counting as our third win with conference schools this game gave Aggie a clear claim to a tie with Russellville Tech for the Conference champion- ship. Score: Aggie, 1; Monticello A. M., 0. NOV. 26— ARKANSAS COLLEGE. Thanksgiving and at Batesville. Our final game involving N. E. Arkansas title was played on a field entirely covered by water. The team deserves great credit for the splendid spirit and fight displayd. Aggie made two first downs to one for their opponents and once actually carried the ball over the goal line only to have the muddy wet ball slip from their grasp. A hard one to lose but we meet again in 1926. PROSPECTUS 1926. There is every indication that at least 14 men from the squad of 1925 will be in College next fall and from this experienced nucleus Coach Schwartz expects to develop an even stronger team than that of ' 25. With this fine material plus new stock the Red and Black should again be a foe hard to handle. A fine schedule has been arranged containing all our old rivals and two new schools in a football way.

Page one hundred thirty-two Pasfeetball Reason of 1924.25.26 The basket ball season of 1924- ' 25 was a success for the A. M. Cagers, due mainly to the wonderful coaching of Mr. H. B. Schwartz. After making the Northern-Trip the team was in tip top shape and at the end of the season they easily defeated Russel- ville Polytechnical School in the game for Conference title. Many candidates for the varsity responded to the first call for practice issued by Coach Schwartz at the opening of 1924- ' 25 season. The first game of the season was with Hardy High School team, A. M. winning by a large score. December 16 and 17 the varsity went to Oxford Mississippi for a two game series with " Ole Miss. " dropping both games by a close score. Then they played Hickory Ridge Athletic Club and defeated them by a large score. On Saturday night before leaving for the Northern Trip, the team easily defeated S. P. U. from Memphis. The varsity left Monday morning January 11, on their Annual Northern Trip. Unfortunately the team didn ' t win any of the games. They played some of the best teams in the North and lost by a close score. Several of the games were lost by one or two points, the team being beaten in the last few minutes of play, which was due to the tire from their long trips across the country in automobiles. After returning from their Northern Trip the varsity played Will Mayfield College and lost by a very close score. Jfootfaall Reason of 1925 Continued from page 130 Jackson, Tenn. " Ole Miss " will again be played at Oxford on Sept. 25, and will be here for a return engagement in 1927. The two newcomers replace Hendrix and Southwestern.

Due to her lasting ability on the court, Maurine is holding the honored po- sition of the squad. Mae Nichols Forward Mae has been with us for five long years, and from year to year she has continued to raise her standard for long-dribbles, passing and shooting, and without her an Aggie Sextette would be wholly incomplete. Mabel McCarroll Forward This is Mabel ' s first year to really play basket ball and every- one knows from last year that she has the ability to forward. And this year she is putting this ability into execution. Page one hundred thirty-five Mildred Horsely Guard Due to her cheerfulness and ability to win, Mildred is rapidly gaining a place in the hall of Basket Ball fame. Margaret Young Jumping Center This is Margarets third year to hold a place on the varsity and it is due to her determination to get the tip-off and to pass the ball. Flora Cox Side Center Flora who has held a place on the Varsity for the last two years has demonstrated her ability to work and play and do both excellently. With all her good studentship, she is a good sport and in the game in the right place at the right time Marguerite Stephens Forward Owing to the loss of one of our forwards, it was a great day for Aggie when it was discovered that Marguerite had won- derful tact to dribble, pass, and shoot baskets. Rosamond Braden Guard She wears a smile no matter how hard she is fighting, and has won a place on the squad. Narine Hargis Forward Our new Forward.

Page one hundred thirty-nine arsrttp page pall The Aggie Nine experienced a very successful season in 1925. Coach Schwartz, Manager Robinson, and Captain McCartney led a fighting playing aggregation through a difficult schedule with victorious results. Braden and Red Thompson divided their time at catching and out- fielding, and played both places equally as well. Mound duty was capably taken care of by Doss, Heard, Hardy, McCartney and Roth. Stewart at first guarded the Initial Sack in great style while Oldham had an equally successful season at the Keystone bag. Captain McCartney proved his worth at Short as well as on the Pitcher ' s Mound. Norton at the Hot Corner played well throughout the season. McDonald, Fender, Braden, Thompson, and Warner handled the outer-gardens like Big Leaguers, both in the fielding and batting departments, while Hammock doing Infield Utility gave the Infield Reserve material of sufficient strength. Coach Schwartz must also be given a large hand in the very impress- ive record brought to Aggie through his team. Page one hundred forty A challenge for a three game series was issued to College of Ozarks, State Champions of 1925.
