His popularity may explain this fact but we suspect that official summons figure prominently. At any rate the number of visits to the Dean ' s Office in the course of the year is amazingly large. One meets the Dean probably for the first time at registration. His reassur- ing smile disarms suspicion and before one knows what has happend he has been loaded down with about all the courses he had planned to sidestep. Classes begin and with the close of the first month another visit to the Dean will probably be made to explain to this inexorable man some low grades. And so on through the year the necessity of calling at the office constantly recurs. That the Dean is on the job is evidenced by the long hours he spends on the hill. He knows the institution — its problems, needs and capaci- ties. The faculty functions smoothly under the directing hand of Mr. Whitsitt. Storms arise in the student body but he weathers them easily.. To the uncritical observerer all institutions of higher education are incon- sistent bundles of discordant elements. And they may become that under some Deans. The various parts of our institutional machinery are well fitted, correctly operated, and so operate smoothly. For this credit is largely due to Mr. Whitsitt. Homer McEwen W. W. Cochran Miss Margaret Carmical Miss Josephine Smithey Miss Emma Rogers Page twenty-fiyo MiMiHimmiiiMiiiimiiHii % )t Jfacultp Mr. V.

Colleges are being replaced by universities. These newer institutions place Engineering, Medicine, Law, Music, and Agriculture on an equal footing with Arts and Sciences. But despite these new developments Arts and Sciences as a college continues to make its strong appeal to the young manhood and womanhood of the world. Even in the Agricultural and Mechanical College there is the demand for the so-called liberal education. Awake to its opportunities our institution has provided an Arts and Sciences course. So satisfactory has it proved and so large has been the demand for this work that Arts and Sciences has become the largest department in our institution. Its existence and its high relative position is perhaps the highest tribute that the Department of Arts and Sciences at Aggie can enjoy. luumiiuiiuiiuiiiuiiuuiiiiuiu Page twenty-five Agriculture If a new day is dawning for the agricultural popula- tion of the United States it is the brighter for the intelli- gent direction and leadership which the institutions of agri- cultural education have made possible. If that new day con- tinues bright it will do so because our Agricultural and Me- chanical Colleges throughout the United States shall have willed it. It was with wisdom that the people of Arkansas planned four state agricultural schools to offer instruction in agri- culture and home economics. The people of the state acted wisely in enlarging these schools and raising them to the rank of colleges. In this state there has been a conspicuous need for scientifically trained agricultural leaders and for a higher level of general agricultural education among our rural people. This institution is coming to play an import- ant part in satisfying that need. In no one single enterprise can the State of Arkansas do more to guarantee the future prosperity of its people than by supporting liberally agricultural education. ' lllllHIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIUniHUIIIIIIIIUIIIIIIIIIUIIIHIIHIIIIIMI ' llllirHIII ' i ' BALANCED brY- Home economics Bulwer-Lytton has said that civilized man can live with- out painting, music, or art but not without cooks. He seems to have overlooked the fact that dressmakers in the final an- alysis are equally as important to man. So man, presumably becoming more civilized, is not allowing his interest in what educators call home economics to wane. At any rate state legislators — still composed chiefly of men, we believe — are providing home economics courses in the state colleges and universities. Such courses are becom- ing more comprehensive. Our legislators hope that through these courses our American women will learn to do the busi- ness of keeping house scientifically and find an opportunity for self expression and self determination. Thus they hope the worst excesses of the Women ' s Revolt will be avoided. Better Breakfasts and Law and Order may yet become a rallying cry.

Great expenditures in electric light current, good book paper, and printer ' s ink have been made. The larger portion of the physical results of these ex- penditures gather dust on library shelves. But those who conceived these expenditures seem not to despair. They re- mind one of the philosophers of the sevententh century. Colleges and universities have now taken up this in- door sport of education. They make some modest claims to significant achievements. Public opinion favors them. Con- sequently we teach the history teacher some history and not a little of the science (?) of teaching. Professors of Educa- tion claim that they are better teachers. In support of their contention they ask if our schools are not greatly improved over what they were say twenty years ago. We believe that they are. Paf e th irty iiiifiiiiiiiiiitHinmiMiimiiiMiiimiiinmiiiiiiinHMfimiMiiiiiiiiMin CO l ' 3C PERFECT copies from the typists PERFECT observance of business forms PERFECT balances by the bookkeepers PERFECT neatness in all business records. Perfection ! That is the goal toward which the Commercial Depart- ment is steadily driving. The old adage says that ' practice makes per- fect ' and the students of this department are given ample opportunity to secure the practice necessary to perfection. Direction is given their efforts by a sympathetic faculty who realize that the students of today are the wizards of the commercial world of to- morrow; and that the economic success of our country is in their hands. The Agricultural and Mechanical College provides modern equipment for the benefit of the students in the Commercial Department. The stu- dents learn how to use intelligently the accounting and typing machines to save time and energy. With the equipment provided by the institution, the instruction af- forded, and the practice made available, the Commercial Department hopes to come nearer achieving its high goal with each year. Page thirty-two $re=jWebtcal Modern science is accomplishing wonders in the field of medicine. As the achievements in this field multiply so seems to increase the need for more M. D. ' s. Arkansas needs must have her share of medics. ' So if has been thought wise to provide for as much pre-medical work as the in- stitution is well able to give. Little journeys into organic chemistry and little excursions into the private life of germs constitute a part of the would-be doctors ' training. The anatomy of frogs, familiarity with squids, the reaction of H 7S -, Ba, i(M | to Bpoe — to mention only a few interesting matters — comprise a course which would drive the average sane collegian to Greek poetry for relief. We sympathize with the members of the medical profession and wish them well. The same sympathy we extend to Mr. Hyslop ' s proteges and the same good wishes. tEfjc ILafaoratorp ffcf ThcTJearlinq IMIIIMHIIIIIIHIiniUllimiHIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIUIIIIininiHIIIIHIHIUIIIII Jftne art ' Music, when soft voices die, vibrates in the Memory. ' — Shelley. The progress of music in America, as an art, and commercially, is unparalled. The appreciation of it is so great that parents everywhere realize that the child who does not have musical opportunities is being deprived of his birthright. Shades if Plato! What would the old philosophers who climbed the heights of the Parthenon think of the America of 1927? Their ideals of music ' s proper place in education and state are all being developed in a way which even they would not have deemed possible. The procession of earnest students to music studios is unending. They realize that music is of importance to the development of not only their finer sensibilities, but is of value in the education of the mind. The student of today, looking for the better things of life, realizes that he would have music, its study, and the delightful people that music brings to one. " Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must have it with us or we find it not. ' — Emerson. If we have not within us the ability to think in an orderly way ; if we have not the ability to develop a keen imagination ; if we have not the ability to appreciate nature we need not hope to find beauty. What is beauty? There is no definition for beauty; there are no definite rules and regulations one may follow and produce a beautiful re- sult. This is where orderly thinking and vivid imagination come in. To be a great musician, artist, sculptor, or architect one must be able to look into the future and see the result of his work before the work has really begun. ' The art of living is the supreme art because it presents the widest range of material, and the most varied, delicate, and enduring forms of activity. ' The Tjearlinq Teach me how to go Softly as the grasses grow ; Hush my soul to meet the shock Of the wild world as a rock ; But my spirits, propped with power, Make as simple as a flower. Let the dry heart fill its cup, Like a poppy looking up ; Let life lightly wear her crown, Like a poppy looking down. Let me, also, cheer a spot, Hidden field or garden grot — Place where passing souls can rest On their way and be their best. Edwin Markham could not have expressed a student ' s sentiments better on expression if he had written for that express purpose. The art of expression includes all the different emotions, attitudes, and gestures in the whole of human experience. IIIIIHIinMMIimilllMlltlllllllliniliniltllliniHIIIIIIUHMIIIII ' J: I I $f)} £tcal Cbucatton " A strong mind in a healthy body " is the aim of the work that is be- ing done by the Department of Physical Education of the Agricultural and Mechanical College. It is impossible for students to do the best work of which they are mentally capable if they are not up to par physically. A healthy student does better work and gets more enjoyment out of both his work and play than the weakling who is unable to show his capabili- ties because of physical frailties. Therefore, the Department of Physical Education has a great work under way in this business of keeping the students in the best of physical health in order that they may do them- selves justice in their books, and in order that they may enjoy life most completely. While the different athletic teams, such as the football team, the bas- ketball teams, the baseball teams, provide excellent training for a number of students, they also provide entertainment for the other students who are spectators in their contests with the teams from other schools and colleges. The number of students eligible for these teams is not large enough to take in all the students, but the gymnasium exercises and callis- thenics are open to all students and thus make wholesome recreation as well as health-giving exercise available for every student in the State Agricultural and Mechanical College. Pa.f e thirty-six itiUHimuinMmmHiiwiHHHiHwiiiHiHHiniiiinnNtKiiiiin: engineering Someone has said that this is the day of the chemist. It might also be said with equal truth that this is the day of the engineer. In the en- gineering accomplishments which have been achieved in the last few months there is a curious romantic side which is peculiar to our modern American growth. Witness the boring of the Moffat Tunnel through the Continental Divide, the erection of the great suspension bridge across the Delaware at Philadelphia, the building of the great water supply plant at Cleveland, and the projection of the Boulder Dam of the Colorado River. And not all of the engineering is in the hands of the civil engineer. Chemical engineering and sanitary engineering are two recent interest- ing developments in this already interesting field. In the future development of Arkansas, engineering must play a con- spicuous part. In this work Arkansas engineers should take the lead. For the education of these Arkansas engineers of the coming years, the state is making provision. Our own institution is able to play its part in this work by providing at least a preparatory course in engineering which will enable these students to complete their work in standard in- stitutions.

This contest was held with the State Teachers College on the Aggie Campus. The ques- tion argued was the passage of a constitutional amendment empowering Congress to regulate child labor. The State College upheld the affirmative of this ques- tion. Miss Dorothy Thomas of Jonesboro, who had had de- bating experience in Jonesboro High School, and Miss Anne Seaborn of Cardweil, Missouri, comprised the State College team which won the unanimous decision over the Teachers. For the 1926-27 season, contests have been arranged with Teachers College and West Tennessee Normal. Pan- American relations will be argued in both debates.

Coming on New Year ' s Eve made it the more interesting. Among the faculty and students moved a consider- able number of friends and patrons from the city of Jonesboro and the surrounding country. Social functions which can be participated in by these groups have an added charm by virtue of that fact. A pretty setting for the event was provided by large num- bers of flowers and potted plants arranged among the furniture in the halls and rooms of the second floor. Soft lights, music, and the attractive gowns contributed their usual portions to the enjoyableness of the occasion. In the receiving line were Mrs. Rogers, Dean of Women, Miss Rogers, Miss Carmical, Miss Woolridge, and Miss Rhodes, members of the faculty living in Y. W. C. A. Dormitory; and the members of the Senior Class. Refreshments of wafers and hot punch were served. Following the hours of eight to ten the young women of the dormitory held a watch party for a group of invited guests.

" This was the first college play of the season and set a high standard of excellency. A well pleased audience from a good house attests to its success. Adam Smith ' s employer is a man of fortune and family and allows both to get on his nerves to the extent of driving him off to the Amazon river country. Adam falls heir to both responsi- bilities and too is threatened with a case of nerves. Adam tells a weak lie about the family fortune evaporating and somehow persuades the other half of his responsibilities to go into the poul- try business. Eva, the mainspring of action and reaction in the family, is charmed by the fair Adam and the two decide to head a family of their own. The father comes home then. Caleb Watson as Adam demonstrated rare executive and domestic qualities and was the star of the performance. Dorothy Reel wore some charming dresses in her part as Eva. Jimmie Young did pretty well as a man of property. As a useless son-in- law Tom English rose to considerable heights. If it be possible that there be a dumb Scotchman and broke, then it is John Mil- ler who tries to trade a title for a slice of the family fortune. Harley Flannagan as a parasitic and dyspeptic uncle enjoys his illness. Neighbor Sam Ccoke drops in occasionally. As a parlor maid Thelma Bradshaw made a good big sister. " Aunty " Wil- mia Wegman essayed the balance wheel. Miss Rhodes was in charge of this play and was assisted in the coaching by Miss Smithey.

The presentation was on Friday evening, December 10, in the Aggie Auditorium. Husband is a manufacturer of imitation pearls and strug- gling in the toils of a grasping capitalist. A heterogeneous group of individuals, including the capitalist, is rounded up by Dulcy for a house party. She then attempts to fix things and so save husband. She also aspires to play the Goddess of Love. If husband ' s backbone had not all gone to arms the comedy might have turned out a tragedy. Fate, too, kindly intervened. Dorothy Thomas in the role of Dulcy bored everybody to the point of extinction and was easily the star. Bryan Brawner, the husband, elicited considerable sympathy. Brother Willie, Edgar Dillon, is a harmless moron who rejoices in runninng off with the bride elect while the bridegroom elect fixes a tire. John Miller is this unfortunate and hails from Hollywood. Old Man Forbes, the capitalist, and Norton Sneider might have been twins. As Mrs. Forbes, Cornelia Games played very well. Cecil Marie Cox seemed too apologetic for a rich man ' s offspring. Advertising engineering isn ' t hardly the brand for Tom Hightower. Glen Bryant, Wilbur Stack, and Earl McKelvey did their best in their unheroic roles. " Dulcy " was quite as successful as " Adam and Eva " . Miss Smithey piloted this cast. i J age ninety IIIIIIIIIIMHIIIIillllMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIUIflllllllllllH ' MiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiuiiiiiHiiiininiiiumiiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiii The pearling yp= " ftlje grrtoal of Utttp Another comedy was presented by the Senior High School Class for the third play of the season. The author of " The Ar- rival of Kitty " probably saw Syd Chaplin in " Charley ' s Aunt " but forgot the plot before he made his contribution to dramatic literature. A good house endorsed it and so it was a success. Only $20,000 is involved. A guardian verging on feeble- mindedness attempts to marry off a niece, already madly infat- uated with a young chap inclined toward melancholia. At the same time he attempts to provide a sister-in-law with a husband. All of which he tries to accomplish before 6 P. M. the same day. Naturally no possible chain of fortuitous events is able to accom- plish such a task. The young chap inclined toward melancholia runs around in women ' s clothing and wins the object of his af- fection. Without rhyme or reason must have been originally ap- plied to this anomaly. As the wicked old guardian-uncle John Johnson was about as diabolical as a college Sophomore at his rolls and coffee before a nine o ' clock. Paul Hopkins as the young man inclined toward melancholia was well cast. Margaret Warr as the unfortunate niece was quite lovable. Aunt Jane, the old maid sister-in-law, Vera Bellville, apparently enjoyed the show as much as anyone. As Kitty, the actress, Ellen Watson was very good. Charles Owen as proprietor of the summer hotel gave little promise of future success in that business but seemed a fair sort of city al- derman. Mack Case was clever in the role of the hero who has passed the dangerous age. Jim Miller and Virginia Mooring did the servants ' roles. This performance was hardly up to the high standards of the first two college plays. It is no fault of Miss Smithey or Mrs. Eldridge, who were in charge of it. immmmmmmmmmmmmmmaimmil I I vJ wMMiwiMiiiiMiiiiuniiuiiiiMuiiiiiiii»iuu.iiiuiii l ii5iiiiiiiMiiiiiMi Page ninety-one Pattcrp " € " 206 Coast SrtiUerp In the four years of its young life Battery C, 206 Coast Artillery, more familiarly known as t he " Army " , has won for itself a high place and something akin to affection among the Aggie students. Despite the furore on American College campuses concerning military training for students, " Cap " Eldridge and " Ace " Puckett proceed calmly with the pre- paration of an anti-aircraft unit that on occasion can shoot down enemy aircraft with the same facility with which " Cap " shoots ducks. When the war clouds loomed up last winter the " Army " smiled grimly and drilled regularly. Seeing the battery, full strength and trim, march to location, set up the long slim rifle, and go through firing practice sent an appreciative thrill along several spines. This regardless of the fact that this is the stuff wars are made of. What interesting transitions from civil life to military life! Roger may be Tramp to the students but Uncle Sam knows him as Sergeant Whitsitt. One hardly recognizes Mack Case, vocalist, as mess Sergeant intrenched in all the dignity of his office. " Dee " Robinson, sometime hero, blossoms into the arrogance of the non-com. Not even the Dean gets so much respectful attention as " Red " Thompson, Second Lieutenant Thompson. Bill Sigman, student, is no relation of Private Sigman, gun tender. In Lieutenant Puckett, barking firing orders, one looks in vain for Tulip of " The Garden of Singing Flowers. " Annual Encampment is a big event in the life of the Battery. For this two weeks ' period of active training Battery C is taken to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, located seven miles from Lawton, Oklahoma, and put through the paces. Last year the battery left for Fort Sill July 16. Seventy-two Page ninety-two enlisted men under command of Captain Eldridge made up the battery. The men wore their side arms and carried their regular camp equipment. The rifle was not taken since rifles were available at the Fort. The training included gymnastics in the early morning, drilling, and instruction and practice in the use of the anti-aircraft rifle. Out of 153 shots Battery C was credited with 24 hits, a very high score. Aside from the actual training there were numerous other interests which appealed to the embryo soldiers. In the baseball games between the various batteries, Battery C won second place. For this success, credit is largely due Zeke Lohman, " Ace " Puckett, and " Red " Thompson. On one occasion two rival batteries attempted to run the local boys through the gauntlet but " Dee " Robinson and Zeke Lohman were equal to the emergency. They armed the battery with cot sticks and beat off the attackers. Medicine Park with its bathing beauties and dance hall is said to have attracted some of the boys. Probably untrue. More am- bitious chaps took the seven mile hike to Mount Scott, a point of local interest. Permission to go to town and privilege of remaining out until eleven kept the boys from getting homesick. The battery returned Aug- ust 1. yearling iiiMiiuiiiiiiiinmrniimmiiimiHiitmiimutntminmuimiuimnii Calendar 1926=27 AUGUST August 22 — I sho do feel little to think they ' d pick me out ub all this bunck to be a freshman.

An ' they told me I had to go to the office to register but they kept knocking me out of line until I give it up. Aug 3 August 26 — I don ' t know many persons yit so in my behalf they had a party. There was some recitations and some games and some refresh- rumpts. This was one time I had enough. It was watermelluns and I got a piece from every one that was cutting. They was several of them. August 30 — I never was so humbuled in my life as when these old girls at the dormitory made my girl wear shoes what weren ' t alike. I wanted to take her to see Buck Jones tonite but I wouldn ' t take her dressed in them inatiun shoes. Fage ninety-four n The yearling SEPTEMBER September 3 — I always thot them Presbyteriums believed in predis- tination and I sho am glad if they do if that party they gave us student body was intended for us. September 6 — They is a lot of happy fellows here which I am gettin ' to know. And they are so care free. They say that I mustn ' t let my education keep me from being joyous. September 10 — Tonite I enjoyed my- self so much cause the teachers perform- ed. Miss Moore ' s hands shore hit them piano keys and Mr. Fletcher displayed his voice. I couldn ' t quite understand him but my roommate said it was be- Miss Smithey said a piece about a fiddle and She was most as good cause it was in Sandscript when she went thro the motions a fiddle played as that fellow in the medicine show. September 25 — Gee I sho was thrilled to- day for I thot I was goin to get to see my first football game but our car stopped on us and we had to come back. Our Gorillas — that ' s what we call our football team — got beat tho and I was expectin ' to see them come home sort of busted up but then they weren ' t very much. Football seems pretty rough like but then there ain ' t much damage done. It ' s sort of amusin ' how serious like they take it for otherwise they don ' t seem over serious. ;. iiiiiiii»u niiuinuiii u i» Miu iiiiuwim Ki nituninuiiiiniuiHiiuiiiManuiMniiM Page ninety -five The Ijearlinq iitiitiMitiiiiininmiimniiiimmiiiuiiiuiiMiiiniMiiiMtiiniiHiitHim OCTOBER October 1 — I went to a place about twenty-six miles from here what they call Paragould.

October 15 — The ones who won the tryouts when Mr. Whitsitt said " all those who want to try out for Adaman Eva meet nonight " give their play in the Auditorium with ihe orchestra which was also there. This wasn ' t a very nice play for they cussed a lot in it and the girls wore dresses without any sleeves in them. They was awful short but I guess they must have worn them thataway in A daman ' s time. What money there was left out of the show was spent to buy blankets for the Gorillas. October 19 — We had chappil today as usual. They said that people mustn ' t park crossways of the road. Of course that was pretty good ad- vise but I don ' t guess we needed it cause all the autos here are parked up on the grass or on the walks. October 12 — Terrible noises like howls and yell s down on Si Coates farm when he is runnin off his liker woke me up this mornin.

November 18 — The Gorillas beat the socks off of Monticello yesterday and they wrot us a tellegrum about it today. The Girls Reserved give us a program in the afternoon but they called it vesper services. They was sorta pretty in white dresses and candles and music. November 25 — It seems as things are comin in fast like. Miss Culler got married to a city fellow up North name of Lyman.

Kind of funny for Christmas presents I thought but I didn ' t let on and so I asked if she was fixin to sell them. I guess I must have got her wrong. December 10 — I bout made up my mind agin marryin after seein that " Dulcy " what the Senior Colleges give. That woman ' s tonge was hung in the middle like Beck Alsike ' s and work- ed on both ends. I think her husband was sort of a dam fool the way he let her mess things up. December 12 — The Y ' s give a pagunt they called the " Nativity " . They was angels in it but I don ' t think they belonged here. They was some sheep herders but they was just students and easy enough to find. The speakin sounded sort of scripture like. December 14- — Our Gorillas— they are the basketball kind now — played Sloan-Hendrix an won easy that is they didn ' t exert much. The lady Gorillas played the females from Sloan-Hendrix too. December 16 — They was sad news what came from Ole Miss — that ' s a school too — what said that the Gorillas had lost the last an the first of theyre 2 games.

What a pleasure it was to see those joyous boys again. The teachers all come back to and Mr. Humble brung his wife but she didn stay long. December 31 — All the College girls at the Y M C A give a reception until ten o ' clock at nite. They walked around in Adaman Eva dresses and talked with a lot of visitors but they was no sense to it. The girls was goin to stay up til midnite so they had some stuf to eat and passed it around.

The Gorillas was shipped North today where they will play basketball at each stop. Between times they are to visit crazy houses, where they make newspapers, picture show houses, and other interestin places in the North. January 3 — A new picture show house down town give all the College Seniors free tickets to the show. They didn want that any of um should- n ' t never see a picture show before leavin for good. They was a marryin right here at the school in the evenen. The bride was sho husky but the man was sorta runty. It took two preachers to do it and lots of other folks but they wasn ' t so important I guess. January 18 — A man named Diggs wore a long taled coat and made a speech in the afternoon. It was about some Dutchman and an Italian which I didn quite figure out. They charged half a dollar. January 21 — Them West Tennessee Normal basketball players whop- ped our Lady Gorillas in awful fashun. January 25 — Us Freshmen put on a picture show of our own but somethin musta been wrong with it an I think it was because Paul Revere isn ' t so well known as Tom Mix as a rider. Next year we may try either Tom Mix or Buck Jones if we get the picture show notion. FEBRUARY February 4 — Several basketball teams from Smith-Hughes come here to play. I guess where they come from wouldn ' t do for to decide the champions or else they wanted to play in the new Armor. Then the quires give a musicale and had some singin flowers only they didn sing of cose but it was really boys and girls. The singin teacher was the man in the moon and rolled his eyes somethin awful. February 7 — The Gordlas played the Presbyterium Panthers in the new Armor in the evenin and won. This new Armor is nigh as large in sise as pap ' s sweet potato patch south of the barn. Theyre goin to keep the Gorillas in it and the Army. February 11 — They was another play which was kind of funny if it was crazy like. A fellow was so bad in love that he lost his mind and run around dressed up as a woman afrightnin people an most near af- fectin their minds to.

ZEKE " Hambone " LOHMAN End " Hambone " is one of the best ends in the state and has proven this several times to the opponents. He has a knack for grabbing passes and also is a hard hitter. When he goes down on a punt the opponents never bring the ball back very far.

He was a hard hitter, was not afraid to hit the line and when he did hit it something ' always gave and he went for his usual five or ten yards or a touch- down. ,«« ,« EDGAR " Papa " DILLON Center Ed was shifted from tackle position to center this year and proved very effective on both defense and offense. Trying to run a play through center was useless because Ed was always there to get his man. This is his second year on the Varsity and he has proven himself very capable of holding down his position. BYRON " Tubby " GOAD Guard Tubby is a three year man and was al- ways in every play. He was a hard man to move and always took care of his man when a hole was needed. Here ' s hoping he may be with us for another season. Page one hundred five OSCAR " Hog Jaw " BYRD Tackle " Hog Jaw " is one of those hard hitting linesmen that you read about. He was al- ways in his position and it just seemed im- possible to move him. We will be sorry to lose Oscar this year on account of his grad- uating. ■J Jt J« HORACE " Curley " WALLIN Guard Horace is a small man in stature but in a game he looked mighty big to his opponent because he was a hard hitting linesman and his man never got into many of the plays. If we can ' t have Horace next year, let ' s have Horace ' s brother. FRANK " Oklahoma " HUGHEY Halfback Frank hails from Oklahoma and this is his first year at Aggie. He is one of the best ground gainers on the team and is known as the boy that can pass and kick. This is Frank ' s first year in college and everyone likes him. JAMES ACE " Red " PUCKETT End This is Red ' s first year on the Varsity. He is a big man in stature and is like a stone wall when they try to run around the end he protects. Ace has two more years in Aggie and will probably be on the Varsity both of these years. ■J : FRED " Tail Light " McDONALD Halfback This is Freddie ' s first year on the Var- sity. He has proven to be a good ground gainer and a hard hitter. He is a slim boy that can run over a rabbit if it be going the same way, and can therefore run away from most of his opponents. St ,t CAROL " Battling " FRENCH Guard This is French ' s first year on the Varsity and he has proven himself to be worthy of holding down the position on the team. He is one of the hardest hitters Aggie has ever known and could always take care of his man.

J TIBBS (otherwise unnamed) HEARD Halfback This brother of the well known Hilary will not have to depend on his brother ' s name and reputation for his own. Another season will find this budding baekfield man a batter- ing ram of the first order and a skirter of ends as fleet and shifty as an Indian. OLIVER " Gentleman Jim " Fullback SANDERS Among the promising candidates who will answer the first call for football candidates next fall will be this smiling young lad who feels as if he is all set for a good record in this famous sport. From all indications he is in line for a baekfield place on next seas- on ' s varsity. Still slight of stature he de- pends more on his bean. It rarely fails him on the gridiron.

M. despite the fact that the Red and Black dropped three and tied in one contest of eight games. Victory over Mississippi was hardly a possibility but a win over Magnolia was to be expected. This setback may have contributed its marginal bit to the defeat the following week at the hands of Southern Illinois Normal. The tied game with the State Teachers might have been anybody ' s game. In victories over West Tennessee Normal, Lambuth, Monticello, and Arkan- sas College the Red and Black has a most worthy record. University of Mississippi — Ole Miss has for several years opened the season with the Aggies. She presented the strongest team by far which the Red and Black met during the season. Bowers, Lohman, and Thompson starred in this game and were able to give as well as to take. It was a losing battle that Captain Oldham ' s men waged but it was a game one as the 28-0 score shows. West Tennessee Normal — Hughey on two different occasions got away for long runs, one of 65 yards, to cross the goal line. On one of his spec- tacular runs he was out of bounds, however. Goad was brilliant on de- fense. The 7-0 score indicates the even terms on which both teams played. Magnolia A. M — Aggie failed to score early in the contest through an unfortunate pass which lost one down. Superior team work on the part of Magnolia from then on kept Aggie on the defensive and outpointed her 18-0. The team felt the loss of Thompson who was out because of injuries. Southern Illinois Normal University — Thompson was again out. Goad was outstanding for Aggie by getting through time after time to break up plays. The Red and Black backfield was weak on defense throughout. A 45 yard kick which netted three points and a successful pass as the whistle ended the game gave Illinois a 10-0 victory. On the whole Aggie was superior, though, despite the result. Lambuth College — This was the first home game and one of the best turned in by the Aggies. Captain Oldham smashed straight through the line a number of times for good gains. In skirting ends he gained yard- age consistently. Bowers was at his best and ripped the opponents line Page one hundred ten almost at will. A wet field slowed the game up considerably but did not prevent some brilliant plays. The final score was 13-0. Arkansas Teachers College — Save for the Ole Miss, game this was the hardest of the season. Thompson played probably his best game of the season in this wearing contest in which the Aggies were on the de- fensive for the most part. At times the line gave way entirely ; at others it held perfectly. Once the line held on the two foot line for downs. Hughey, usually a good punter, was taxed to his utmost in averaging 20 yards on his punts. Considering the instability of the team at critical times Aggie was lucky to get a scoreless tie. Monticello A. M. — During the first half both teams played con- servatively and disjointedly. In the second half Bowers broke loose for a number of large gains which enabled his team to annex the game by the final count of 26-6. French, a comparatively new man, destinguished himself in this contest. Arkansas College — Homecoming-Thanksgiving Day saw the last game of the season played and one of the most thrilling. In the final quarter al- most certain defeat was turned into glorious victory. Aften finally checking a furious assault in the shadow of their goal posts the Aggies took the ball to midfield and on two long brilliant passes, one to Lohman on one end and one to Puckett on the other, scored their second touchdown. Hughey and Lohman are entitled to especial credit for this 14-7 win. FOOTBALL SCORES, 1926 A. M ....0 Mississippi 28 A. M ...7 West Tennessee Normal A. M Magnolia A. M 18 A. M.

This in no way can be inter- preted in casting any reflection on the Coach or his men. In these contests they were matched against some of the strongest teams in the South and the Middle West. In the first game of the season, played with Sloan-Hendrix Academy, many of the second string men were used which accounts for the final score 36-35 in favor of A. M. On the following day the team travelled by bus to Ole Miss and lost the same evening 53-22. Cold, fatigue, and re- sultant stiffness placed the Aggies under a severe handicap. In the sec- ond game with Ole Miss on the following evening they did much better but lost a well-payed game 41-16. Stevens at center starred in these two contests.

Thompson at guard and Captain Rains at forward were out- standing for Aggie in a good game with Valparaiso University which the latter won 38-17. In Chicago the Red and Black met the powerful Loyola University which turned them back 37-9. McDonald deserves not a little credit for his team ' s strength in this contest. DeKalb Normal inflicted a stinging defeat on the invaders 54-20. Quincy College was lucky to win from the Aggies 21-18.

Under Miss Carmical ' s careful guidance the Varsity girls came through a very successful season in basketball. In their five contests they took two games and dropped the other three only after good fights and with no discredit. The team included some good material but a large part of it was new and inexperienced. Mabel McCarrol, Captain, forward, was one of the best members of the squad and contributed the larger portion of the scoring in the several contests. A jumping center Juanita Bartholomew played very well and promises to be a valuable player another year. At running center Vera Bellville played her second season. Her good de- fensive playing and her pleasing personality have made her many friends on the basketball court. Modena Hazlett at guard was steady, reliable, and clever.

In their first game the Aggie girls won handily from Sloan-Hendrix 18-13. Practically the entire team took part in this game. Mabel Mc- Carrol and Modena Hazlett were outstanding for Aggie. West Tennessee Normal was the second team encountered. It proved to be fast, shifty and well coached in perfect team play. Against this team the Aggie girls were at a disadvantage and went down 34-13. Vera Bellville and Mo- dena Hazlett constituted the strength of the Aggie girls. Lambuth Col- lege visited the Aggies next and brought an excellent team which won 28-18. The Aggie girls dropped a good return game with West Tennessee Normal 27-14. Emma Purser starred.

The team was handicapped, too, by weak pitching. The first pair of collegiate games was played with Millikin University at home. Both games were taken by the visitors, the first by a score of 11-8 and the second 17-4. In the second about all the hurlers Aggie had were utilized to no advantage. Then their seven hits were offset by their errors. Better fortune attended the Aggies in their next two games with Arkansas College. In the first they collected nine hits for eleven runs while Arkansas College was garnering seven for seven runs. The second was taken 6-3, Goss twirling for Aggie. Southwestern was next taken on at Memphis and the two games di- vided. Aggie dropped the first 12-6 but nosed out in the second, which turned out to be a slugging match, 16-15. In this one Lohman is cred- ited with a pitcher ' s victory and with two hits and a sacrifice in five times at bat. " Red " Thompson fattened his batting average here getting five hits out of six times at bat. Arkansas College was next with a two game series there. She took the first 13-4 and the second also by the equally one-sided score of 15-3. Lack of hitting power and ragged fielding explain the Aggies ' failure to get even a look-in. In the second series with Southwestern the two teams again divided. After being shut out 18-0 in the first, the Aggies rallied in the second to win 6-1. Lohman ' s pitching and Thomas ' hitting featured this re- covery. By tying the first game with Hall-Moody 3-3 and dropping the sec- ond 2-1, the Red and Black closed its season. Largely throughout the efforts of Lohman, Thomas, Thompson, and Nichols had the Aggies been able to get through a passable season. With the training the new men secured and the return of the old stand-bys the season of 1926-27 should be a more successful one. 5,[IUIIIIIIII1HIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIMIIIIIIII UHUIInHHIIIimmtHHUHHHIH 1927 Page one hundred seventeen SOPHOMORE CLASS TEAM (Girls) Winners Intramural Basketball Tournament 1926 TOP: Barringer, Horsley (Coach), French, L.

Place them face down on the table cloth, a little to the right of the place where you spilled the soup. Never tie your napkin around your neck. The waiter will be glad to bring you a safety pin. Besides, there is less danger from strangulation. Grapefruit served in halves should be inverted on the plate. Puncture the top and insert the straw there. Never chew tobacco between courses. Some of the more sensitive ladies object to this practice, and it is always well to wait until they have withdrawn. Sphagetti should never be eaten in more than one yard lengths. Care- fully sever the string, and catch the remnant, before it falls back to the plate again. The index finger may be used if needed. If peas roll from your knife, ask the waiter for a funnel. Remove bones from oysters with the fingers, and eat daintly with the tip of the knife. Never throw biscuits or rolls at the table. Their irregular shape and uncertain weight makes it impossible to secure accuracy. Do not wrap the legs or feet about table legs or chair rungs as this is particularly dangerous in case of fire. Nuts should be cracked in the mouth in order to prevent scattering the shells. The following formula may be used in determining the correct spoon: Multiply one half of your age by three and subtract your street number. Add the year of your birth and divide by the number of guests present at the dinner. Allow for a plus or minus variation of two. iiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiHiiiHHiHiiiiiirumiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiHiiiiiiii Pape one hundred forty 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 1 II 1 1| ii ■ i ■ 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 II 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 M 1 I 1 1 1 1 II II 1 1 1 1 1 II 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 II 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 1 1 ■ 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 11 1 1 1 1 1 1 II 1 1 II 1 1 1 II 1 1 HI I III I M BANK OF NETTLETON | NETTLETON -:- -:- ARKANSAS 1 The Bank of Friendly Service { Four Per Cent on Time Deposits 1 IMIIIIIIIlllMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIII millllllllHIIIFtllllllllimillllllllllMMIIMMIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIII 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 TTTll iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiii JONESBORO TRUST CO.
