Through the years we have learned to admire him for his sterling qualities. Two of these qualities that have impressed us most are his loyalty and fidelity to the cause of education. With appreciation we dedicate the 1929 YEARLING to Mr. R. Whitaker, president of the Board of Trustees. 1929 carting 3« H?mflnam There is no Death!

M. College will be celebrating its twentieth anniversary. The Legislature of 190!) established this institution to serve an underprivileged group of our people, those young men and young women, who on account of limited earning capacity and an un- developed system of education, were being denied the advantages of both college and high school. Educational progress has been rapid during the last two decades. Today the A. M. College responds to the diversified demands of one hundred per cent of our people for collegiate training. It offers a curriculum covering the course of the freshman and sophomore years of a university. Our state can advance only through the intelligence of its people. Education directs intelligence and permits us to apply it. Twenty years ago the A. M. College accepted the challenge of the people of Arkansas for service. The everchanging demand in character and quality results in more and better educational service. It is our hope and constant endeavor that the young people who leave the A. M. College to enter the " lists " in the battle of life may be prepared to successfully meet these everchanging demands of society. - V. C. KAYS. MR. R. WHITAKER, President Knobel MR. W. S. DANNER, Secretary Clarksdale MR. R. E. L. WILSON Wi son MR. W. L. RANKS Hickory Rid(ie MISS PEARL DAVIS Forrest City The first unit in the administration o f the college is the State; then comes the Board of Trustees. Unless we include in our book a few words regarding the Board, we feel that our hook would be incomplete. We always feel honored when the Board is with us. They all arc busy people, and are filling big places, both in their own affairs, and those of the state. When the Board is meeting in President Kays ' oflice, we know that the members are devising plans whereby the A. M. College will be able to grow and fill a great place in the development of the young manhood and womanhood of Arkansas. E. L. WHITS ITT Dean of Faculty B. S. Pardue ; Harvard University .MRS. D. T.

Diploma D ' exeeution Central College Conservatoire American Fontainebleau, France Sruartmrnt of Aijnrulturr The development of agriculture is a factor of prime importance to the people of Arkansas. A state that is primarily an agricultural state needs to make the most of every resource. While the " old time " methods of farming have kept the state in a stable position, new ideas must be instilled into the people to facilitate progress. The mediums through which this knowledge will be spread are the young men who have chosen to specialize in college along this line of endeavor. For this purpose the A. M. College was founded and is turning out year by year men who are ready to take responsible positions in agri- cultural affairs. They are thoroughly versed in the practical, as well as the theoretical, side of farming and have had suflick ' nt training to enable them to pass their knowledge on. No longer need a man say. " I ' ve been a farmer all my life, and I hate to have my son follow in my footsteps. " Now a farmer follows no longer in his father ' s footsteps, but instead, looks to science for his guide. The same solid, constructive work is necessary to be a successful farmer; but now, a farmer has the help of research, workers, and experiment stations and does not expend his surplus energy in the drudgery that was formerly so overwhelming. irpartntrnt of lEnuratum One need not give a lengthy discourse on the purpose of the Education Department. The magic names of Judd, Freeman, Nutt, and Thorndyke are enough to convey the whole reason in a nutshell. To be a good teacher, one must have a thorough knowledge of the science of teaching, as well as an idea of the subject matter. What good docs it do a teacher to know that there are forty-eight states in the Union if she cannot interest her pupils in the fact? How to teach is as important as what to teach. The demand for more efficient teachers led the school to start a special education department a few years ago. This new course was such a popular one that the Training School was established, so that students could obtain a clearer insight into the psychology of children from actual experience. Mr. .1. W. Jewell, a graduate of the University of Kentucky and post- graduate of Chicago University, is head of the Educat ion Department and adviser of student teachers. Mrs. D. T. Rogers, principal of the Training School, is supervisor of the student teachers in actual instructing. The fact that one graduating from this department may obtain a state license without the preliminary examinations has led many students to enroll in this course. ■Prp-Htelttral Department From all over the state, and especially from rural districts, the college hears calls for more doctors. The craze for specialization has taken so many from the ranks of the general practitioners that there are not enough left to serve the rural sections. Many of the doctors now administering to country districts are old and not familiar with the latest medical methods. Little by little as she is able, the institution has been adding depart- ments which have been deemed most necessary. Since this is only a junior college, the pre-medical work was added as a unit of the science depa rtment. Mr. C. M. Hyslop, instructor in Chemistry, is head of this department. Mr. Hyslop is a graduate of George Washington University, with B. S. and M. S. degrees. He has done post graduate work at the University of Nebraska toward his doctor ' s degree. The A. M. College is fortunate in having one so well prepared to head this department. Although this is a comparatively recent addition, the graduates of this department have already established a wonderful reputation for the school by their excellent work in other institutions. Drpartmntt of Arta anb Bmntv Although there is ;in increased demand for specialization in pro- fessions, this specialization must be built on a firm foundation of general information. To take care of this demand, schools and colleges added the Arts and Science course. The country does not want a nation of one-minded bigots, but a nation of broad-minded thinkers. If specilization is begun too early in life only one channel of thought is stressed, whereas if a store of versatile knowledge is obtained, men may develop a keener mind and a broader judgment. To quote Bacon, " Heading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man. Histories make men wise; poets witty; the mathematics subtle; natural philosophy dee]); moral grave; logic and rhetoric able to contend. " Quite a number of students now are entering college while still quite young, and undecided as to vocation. To these, the Arts and Science Department appeals especially. They can take work in the various fields until they decide upon one for specialization. The Arts and Science Department is by far the largest in the institu- tion, including more than forty per cent of the students enrolled. »9-9 pearling 7 7) J) irpartntpttt nf pbijatral Ouratum The Physical Education Department is one of the most popular in the institution. It is doubtful which is more popular — the subject or the instructors. Mr. Schwartz, instructor in physical education for men, is one of the most familiar figures at A. M. He is football coach as well. This is Coach Schwartz ' s sixth year at A. M. Miss Myra Baldwin is instructor in physical education for girls and coach of the girls ' basket ball team. She is a native of Oklahoma and a graduate of Oklahoma State College for Women. Although this is Miss Baldwin ' s first year, she has become very popular, both as an in- structor and a coach. Sometimes it does seem rather boring to go to the Armory, get into uniform, and do those exercises, dances, and games that make up " physical ed, " but on the whole it is great sport. If the students who participate in these activities were a little older or a little more given to deep thinking, they would realize that physical education is doing more than just furnishing sport for them. It is building up strong bodies, and thence strong minds. Department of ijom? lEnmomtrs The Home Economies Department is always considered an essential part of an Agricultural and Mechanical College. Some people think that this department is only for those who, despairing of ever becoming anything intellectually, decide to become a homeniaker. This fallacy should be corrected. Home Economics has been developed until it can truly be called a science. Astronomy, physics, mathematics, all the more ancient sciences must step back and bow to this truly modern one. We have always thought- that our mothers were perfect models of housewifery, yet it has been proved that there are many phases of house- keeping that they are not so proficient in. But why should we take this course if all the training can be obtained at home? There are many new phases included under this heading that were never stressed a generation ago. Who of our grandmothers, or even our mothers, would believe it if we told them that home economics is not only sewing and cooking, but dress designing, art, and interior decorating as well? If we are going to do anything we might as well do it thoroughly, and if home economics is our choice, why not do it scientifically? Srpartnmtt of Jtnp ArtH The idea that with the growth of any institution there is a cor- responding growth in spirit is exemplified by the progress made in the development of tine arts. Perhaps there is no phase of development lhat reaps as satisfactory returns as the development of the aesthetic side of human nature. When offered such opportunities as those presented in this course, the student is indeed unfortunate who does not avail himself of them. With the addition of the organ department the curricula of the fine arts group is exceptionally well rounded. Piano, voice, violin, organ, expression, harmony, musical history, solfeggio, public school music, and choral work are offered. A musical appreciation club, known as Sigma Chi, was organized on the campus this year, as well as the traditional men ' s and women ' s glee clubs. The orchestra is an important factor in student affairs and is perhaps the best in the history of the institution. The earnestness with which the fine arts students are working shows that they realize the value of their course. Although this department is the youngest in the institution, the strides that it has made have been little short of phenomenal. This may be accounted for by the desires of the far-seeing young men and women of Arkansas who realize that they must have something to hold fast to in the future. There is no more permanent pleasure than the ability to enjoy the beautiful, and although all cannot be master artists, a course as democratic as the one offered at Arkansas A. M. has a place for everyone. Srpartntrtit of (Hammmr If you do not believe that " practice makes perfect, " ask any student of the commercial department and see what he says about it. Taking for granted that it is not true, why do they spend hour after hour pecking away at the typewriter? These students have learned through experience that perfection can be attained only by constant work and endeavor. Aided and encouraged by a sympathetic instructor they have sur- mounted many little difficulties that have come up. Miss Harriet Peterson, a native of South Dakota, and a graduate of the State College of South Dakota, is instructor in this department. Because there is always such a steady demand for competent book- keepers, stenographers, and accountants, the commercial department has grown steadily in size and influence. Many of the leaders in commer- cial work in this vicinity are glad to be numbered as old graduates of this school. Dtpartnmtt of tEttgmrrrtwj The Engineering Department was established primarily as an addi- tion to the agricultural course. Since the first two years of all engineer- ing courses are the same, it was decided to open this school to all students. Our curricula followed that of the state university so that students who have had their preliminary training here can obtain full credit for their work elsewhere. Today is the day of the engineer. Every immense undertaking that is completed owes its success to the engineer. He may be an electrical, a chemical, or a civil engineer, but his master mind is present always. Arkansas with her vast and rich resources has need of intelligent and capable engineers. Since her boys are better acquainted with her possi- bilities why not give them the first opportunity to develop them. The department is in charge of Dr. Newton H. Brown, a graduate of Cornell University, and Illinois Weselyan, a veteran in this field. Jtt th (§fltn When new students enter the college ])ossibly the first person they become acquainted with is Mr. Warr, the bursar. Everyone must go to the office, and there he is greeted by a kind, cheerful, and helpful man; not one who answers in short " yes " or " no " , but one who is always ready to give assistance, advice, or whatever it may be we desire. Mr. Warr came to the A. M. College in 191(1, as farm foreman. Having successfully filled this position for two years, he returned to St. Francis county for nine years. In 1921, Mr. Warr canve back to the college, not in the capacity in which he ser ved formerly, but as bursar of the institution. Not only are Mr. Warr ' s duties the receiving and paying of funds, but he has many and varied duties to perform. We see him chiefly keeping and auditing the books, managing the bookstore, keeping the postoffice, running the Aggie Inn, and innumerable other things which only Mr. Warr can handle. A. M. would not be the same without Mr. Warr ' s whole-hearted, " What can I do for you? " Anywhere and everywhere Mr. Warr is a friend to all.

This division was established in 1927, opening in early September, and closing with the first summer session of 1928. During the first year a number of pupils were added in these six grades. The 1928 session found not only an increase in enrollment, but also several additions to the faculty and new attractive courses. These courses include art for all grades, piano, violin, expression classes, and physical training Only a limited number of pupils is accepted in each grade, thereby assuring the pupil individual attention as well as the best training in the special subjects. It is the purpose of Mrs. 1). T.

College orchestra has always had the reputation of being a very popular organization on the campus. This year the orchestra has far surpassed other years not only in the number of members hut in the quality of the work produced. Under the efficient direction of Miss Eleanor Current, violin instruct- or, the orchestra has shown very marked improvement. The instruments are more evenly balanced and the effect of all parts shows the training of a capable director. Miss Current came to A. M. in 1927 as violin instructor, and since that time has gained widespread popularity as solo artist and instructor. Since taking over the orchestra in 1928, her reputation as conductor takes no second place to the other attributes for which she is so popular. We all like to have the orchestra play for us, and are proud to have them play for our visitors on all occasions. 9 9 Yearling " A " (Ulitb Frank Hughey President Fred McDonal V; ' c President Otha Lamb Secretary-Treasurer All students who are awarded letters by the college are eligible to become members of the " A " (dub. This honor is possibly the most coveted of any in the school — to say that one is a member of the " A " Club. The members of the " A " Club met and decided on the following Aggie Code of sportsmanship: 1. Consider all athletic opponents as guests, and treat them as such. 2.

M. College in the V. M. ( ' ,. A., Y. W. C. A., and Girls ' Reserve, have worked together in creating religious activities on the campus. To this end vesper services are held each Sunday evening immediately after the dinner hour. The program is in charge of one of these organizations each time, alternating between the town and dormitory pupils. This arrangement provides training for all students on the campus as well as religious instruction, which is so essential during college life. The Christian organizations on the campus owe much to Dr. Brown who is so faithful in his efforts to these Vesper services.

Geneva Wade, Lorena Chandler, Willester iHilttarg Init of A. Sc M. (Eollpgr Through the efforts of the military authorities of Arkansas, assisted materially by Senator Caraway, the 206th Coast Artillery Anti-Aircraft was secured for Arkansas. The 2 (it h Coast Artillery comprises sixteen units. It was not difficult to select the name 206, since 205 was the last regiment selected by the Militia Bureau. The four Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges of Arkansas made a strenous effort to secure a battery of the proposed regiment. A survey of the student bodies of the institutions showed that they contained sufficient number of men that would meet the physical qualifications. Accordingly then, on October 19, 1923, Col. H. L. McAlister, Major S. B. Scott, and Major Edward Woodford made the trip to JonesborO and organized the military unit at A. M. College. There were fifty-nine enlisted men and two officers recognized as such on this date. This unit was known as Battery C, 141st Artillery Anti-Aircraft. On the first day of December 1923, it was re-designated as Battery C, 206th Coast Artillery Anti-craft. This re-designation became necessary because the appropriations of the War Department were so stipulated that the expendi- ture had to be made for National Guard Coast Artillery units. The minimum maintenance strength of this unit is sixty men and three officers. The maximum maintenance strength is seventy-six men and three officers. The battery has maintained its maximum maintenance strength since a short time after it was Federal ly recognized. The battery makes a two weeks annual encampment at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, each summer. At this encampment, the personnel of this organization is given practical experience in basic and advance training to include anti-aircraft target practice with the 75mm. guns. The annual payroll of this organization amounts to approximately $6,000 to $8,000, thus enabling all the men of the organization an oppor- tunity of defraying a portion of their school expenditures. The pay depends upon the rank of the soldier. In 1925, General Assembly passed a bill providing state owned Armories. This bill provided an annual appropriation of $45,000 to be •expended for this purpose. $15,000 was the maximum amount alloted in the bill to any single town for the purpose of building an Armory. These allotments were made to those units of the Arkansas National Guard where there was some assurance that the battery located there would be continued, .lonesboro was fortunate in securing $15,000 of the first appropriation, and with an additional $75,000 provided by the A. M. College Trustees, built the $90,000 Armory. This Armory was completed in the fall of 1926. The gymnasium has a capacity large enough to seat 6,500 people. 9 9 tari n Perhaps the best received entertainment of the first semester was that presented on December the fourteenth, under the title of " Stunt Night. " Dr. Brown announced the stunts, giving a brief introduction to each. The first, a musical story, was told by Vivien Agee, with the assistance of a novelty orchestra composed of (dee (dub members. The French Club next presented their interpretation of a " Serious Surgical Slip. " Arlien Wright, Tabitha Webb, and Taylor Lindsey all conspired to make Nixon Shivley uncomfortable during the sketch. ShotFner Burge took advantage of his opportunity to display his lack of artistic ability, and to bombard Ewell Dodson with wise cracks, in the Science Club stunt. Next the Y. W. C. A. members presented a most original and enter- taining dramatization of " Lochinvar, " with Buth Franklin in the title role, Adelaide Bogers as the blushing bride, and other members of the organization in the lesser roles. All were well-cast, and played their parts smoothly. As a second part of the Y. W. act, Virginia Mooring, in the role of Doctor Quack, conducted a sale of patent medicines. In her demonstrations she was assisted by members of the audience, and secured results little short of miraculous. The final number was a bathing beauty contest, conducted by the Y. M. C. A. The entries, introduced by Pat Huddleston in a characteristic way, were: Bobert Saunders, Hollis Ward, Wendell Ellis, " Fat " Henson, Dixie Guthrie, Ewell Dodson, Bernard Gray, Gaylord Wisner, and the winner, Theodore Hodges. Jackie Hague presented a specialty while the judges were making their decision. It was both appropriate and final: " Time to Retire. " 1929 Y car «g The Y. M. C. A. reception hall was the scene of the annual " Student Mixer " on August 24, 1928. The whole faculty and student body were in attendance, wearing their tags of identification. As this was the first formal opening of the reception hall for the semester, the new students conducted a tour of investigation and got acquainted with the hall as well as with the students and faculty. Miss Baldwin, director of physical education for women, introduced a new game to the group entitled, " You ' re It. " When Mr. Kays got into the game, affairs took another turn. He said. " You ' re all it, " and then told some very interesting facts about the history and the progress of the school. The contrast between the status of the school when founded and the present one were ably contrasted by the stories that he told. Mrs. Brotherton, Miss Current, and Mr. Fletcher were then presented, and made their initial appearance to the new student group. Their ensemble number was very well received, and was ably followed by humorous readings, given by Miss Hartzell. One of the most interesting features of the evening was the drawing for the prizes, two large, juicy watermelons. Mr. Buddy Kays drew two identification tags from a box, and the winners were presented with their trophies. None were disappointed, however, for soon little cards were circulated, bearing the name of some famous characters. Thus partners were found, and then all ate. Captain Eldridge and his soldiers had charge of the watermelons, strange as it may seem, and all got their share. A number of the students seemed to have gone back to their childhood days, when " stolen melons seemed the sweetest, " for they disappeared with astounding rapidity. Punch was served throughout the evening by members of the home economics department, and helped to make the August night seem less sultry. The whole affair was enjoyable and helped to bring the group closer together. Both faculty and students reached the same conclusion in at least one respect — " We all had a good time!

One girl and one boy from each college class, editors of the Yearling and the Herald, the band, cheer leaders, three representatives from the football team, the football captain and manager, Mr. and Mrs. Kays and Buddy, Coach Schwartz, and Mr. Hague. Leaving Jonesboro early Friday morning they arrived in Decatur, Illinois, about 7:00 p. m., where the night was spent. The journey was resumed the next morning and at 10:15 a. m., October 19, they arrived on the Illinois campus. Here, a tour was made of the buildings and grounds. About twenty buildings were inspected, including the armory, gymnasium, labora- tories, electrical buildings, law buildings, etc. The University of Illinois is the largest of its kind. The campus covers many hundred acres, and one could spend a day visiting its buildings. At noon, lunch was eaten, and afterwards, the Arkansans walked to the stadium where the contest between Indiana and Illinois was wit- nessed. The Aggie students, due to the management of Mr. Kays, had very fine seats in the center of the field. The stadium is an enormous one. There were 35,000 present, and it did not look half filled. It is needless to say that the game, as well as the other entertainment which accompanied it was enjoyed. The Illinois 350 piece band gave a wonderful exhibition, as did the the smaller, but peppier Indiana organization. The yell leaders were a treat in themselves, and a great amount of pep was displayed by the rooters. The game was a thrilling one from start to finish. Illinois, the Alma Mater of our presi- dent, Mr. Kays, was the winner by a 13 to 7 score. After the game, the A. M. students piled in the cars and drove to Decatur for supper, thence to Vandalia to spend the second night. The next morning, which was Sunday, saw them again on their way, and at 7:00 p. m. they arrived home, tired, hut happy. The entire troup owes to Mr. Kays, who made possible the trip, a great debt of gratitude. 1929 pearling Whew ag ie went to illinoi look $am Coacli Schwartz Manager Barge Veil deader mnrfcn Captain Hughe] Jontball jFarls Aggie ended a very successful season. Hard luck, injuries, adverse weather conditions, the schedule and most everything that could happen to a football team turned our way. Out of seven games, live were played away from home. Next season there will he six games played at home, (loach Schwartz should have the best season of his career. There will he a large group of letter men from which he can build his team. He will lose the valuable services of Captain Hughey, McDonal, Burnett, and Byrd, hut we hope he can find men to uphold these stars. This season has a record of three wins, one tie, and three lost. The schedule for the 1929 season is as follows: September 28 — Mountain Home College Here October — Tennessee Junior University There October 12— Bethel College There October 19— Little Bock College There October 2(5 — Magnolia Aggies Here November 2 — West Tennessee Teachers Here November 11 — Cape Girardeau Teachers Here November 28 — Arkansas College Here McDonal Owen Puckett Burnett Aggie 52 — Mountain Home The Gorillas opened the 1928 season by scoring a touchdown in just two minutes of play. McDonal carried the ball over. The intense heat slowed up the play of both teams, but enough was seen to make every one sure of a successful season. Captain Hughey and McDonal were in mid- season form. They carried the ball over for five touchdowns. Coach Schwartz tried out many new men. The line performed creditably with a lot of the men getting their first experience in college football. The gang backfield featuring Tyre, Spikes, Heard, and Sanderson performed nicely. Slitters, the big fullback for Mountain Home, gave the Gorillas and fans plenty of thrills. Aggie 20 — Lambuth 6 For three quarters the breaks, the weather, and everything kept the Gorillas and Lambuth about even. Then with seven minutes to go, Aggie hit her stride. Hughey, McDonal, Burnett, and Ferguson slipped through the Lambuth line which the Gorillas had charged open. A switch to the aerial attack brought results. Owen gathered in a long pass over the goal line for the second touchdown. Johnson supported by Clark was the Lambuth team, and a good one at that. Hodges Ward Byrd Tj re Magnolia 22 — Aggie The Gorillas went to Magnolia and lost a hard fought game. MeDonal was left at home because of illness. The breaks just went against the Gorillas. The score does not indicate the real comparative strength of the two teams. Magnolia had a mighty nice team with the hardest line we hit this season. Hughey. Ferguson, and Burnett played good games in the backfield. Henson, Oldham and Cothern were the best in the line. Greer and Polk went best for Magnolia. Aggie 14 — West Tennessee Teachers 19 A real game of football that lady luck gave the Teachers was played in mid-season. Aggie played the Teachers off their feet in three periods. A few lucky passes cost the game. Gaptain Hughey played his greatest game for Aggie. A fifty-live yard return of a punt in the closing minutes was his feature. MeDonal played a splendid game until forced out because of injury. Tyre put up a mighty nice game of ball. In the line everyone was good. Headdon, Johnson, and Jones were the Teachers ' stars. Hoard Spikes Ferguson Olllllil Ml Aggie 6 — Arkansas College 6 The bottom fell out of the dope bucket when Aggie held the powerful Arkansas College eleven to a six-six tie. The playing of the Aggie line was featured. Once it held for four downs on the six-inch line. Sander- son played his best game of football. Hughey took the lead in the back- field; he scored the touchdown on a reverse end run. Spikes played a sensational game until forced out because of injuries. Burnett played his steady, consistent ganje. Heard and Tyre performed nicely. Fiser, assisted by Schlater and Patterson was about the whole show for the Panthers. Injuries probably cost Aggie this game, for McDonal, Hodges, and Ferguson were on the bench because of injuries. Aggie — Cape Girareau 12 The element turned against the Gorillas. The field was a sea of mud and water; and after the first down, the referee did not keep one from another. The Teachers were better mudders. Aggie ' s fast, speedy backs could not get going. The aerial attack brought us into scoring distance several times, but was stopped before the line was crossed. Every man working, the try ' s got into the game. Harris was the main drive for the Teachers. Sanderson ( III lllTH Henson La mli Aggie 6 — Little Rock College Thanksgiving and Homecoming was the occasion when the Gorillas closed the season with a brilliant victory over the Little Hock Eagles. Playing without the services of Captain Hughey the entire Aggie team played with a zeal and determination that was not to be denied. A muddy field handicapped both teams. McDonal scored the touchdown on a " bootleg " late in the last half. McDonal, playing his last game, played one of his best in his long cover at Aggie. Burnett, at quarter, turned in a wonderful performance in his last appearance. Hodges, called back from the line to do the punting, performed nobly — one punt covering eighty yards and pulled Aggie out of a bad hole. Spikes, Sanderson, Ferguson, and Tyre all did their share toward the victory. Henson played his best game of the year. Time after time he broke through to smear Little Hock plays. The entire Aggie line charged and held, as the occasion demanded, and the last game of the year closed successfully. Oldham, Lamb, Cothern, Owens, Puckett, Byrd, Ward, and Hodges all played the greatest game of the year. " Bookie " Walsh, Kelly, and Heslin were the outstanding men of the Little Hock College. 1929 pearling § rrnnii 3feam iFnntball Coach Schwartz had in readiness during the 1928 season his " Fight- ing Seconds. " Although the second team had no games and no set schedule for play, they were always ready and there when the coach should call on them for service. It was in the first game of the season, with Mountain Home College, that the seconds were called into play for college football. When the victory became inevitable with the visitors, Coach Schwartz tried out his reserve men. All players performed nicely and show signs of real foot- ball men for future use. On the second team were Herman and Raymond Bogan, Martin Burns, Opie Williams, Pat Richardson, Pat Huddleston, Eddie Mobbs, J. E. Tanklersley, .lames Shelby, and Ralph Stephens. Most of these men will be back in 1929 to can y on the good name of the college in athletics. Coacli Gonnerman M cDonal Mimii ' tt La mil The most successful season ever experienced at Aggie, except the time of winning the state championship, was brought to a victorious close, February 22 and 23 by two impressive victories over the fast Will Mayfield team. With only three letter men to form the foundation of the team. Coach Gonnerman developed a team that took second place in the con- ference and ranked in the state ratings. There was a feeling of co-opera- tion anil teamwork among the members of the squad that went far towards the success of the Gorillas. The record of games played with college teams was thirteen won and five lost. Only four games were played on the northern trip and three of these were turned into Aggie victories. The best record a team ever made on this annual trip is now held by the 1929 Gorillas. In the conference live games were won and three lost. In the eighteen games Aggie scored 528 points to their opponents ' 497. Fred McDonal, guard and captain, playing his third and last year on the team, turned in his best season. He was an excellent guard in all respects. His floor work and passing were far above par, and was always a dangerous shot especially in a tight place. He performed his duties as captain in a creditable manner using good judgment, and keep- ing a steady cool head in all places and times. Johnnie Burnett, forward, played his second year on the team. He is one of the best forwards that ever wore an Aggie uniform. He was a Duke s;i iiderson Rankin stc4 ens fast, clever man on the floor and a wonderful shot. It is believed he holds the state record for points, his total for eighteen college sanies being 2(53 points, or over 14 1-2 points per game. He had no special shot, all being the same to him. Gordon Lamb, guard, played more time than any other man on the squad. He was one of the best defensive men in the state, especially his back board work featured his play. He also carried his part of the offense. He played the center position in a creditable manner in the early part of the season. We predict him to be the best guard in the state next season. Ray Stevens, center, hit his stride about mid-season. He was a sensation from then on until the close of the season. He was in the thick of every scrap, and could be counted on for his share of the points. Melvin Duke, forward, was a clever floor man and a good shot. He titted into his position and carried his part of the burden of both defense and offense above par. Nate Penix, forward, was a great help to the team, When he got right business picked up. He was one of the best floor men and passes mi the squad, besides being a very accurate shot. Marvin Sanderson, guard, better known as " Soak, " could always be depended on to do his part of the guarding.. He could also handle the ball well, and was a good shot. No doubt he will be set for a great year next season. Quentin Rankin, guard, was always there to do his part when he entered the game. Rankin will develop into an extra good guard by next season and will fill a varsity position in the most approved style. In a review of the season, Aggie opened the season with a win over West Tennessee Teachers ' . The team left on the northern trip for the next games, losing to Southern Illinois Normal, and winning over Sparks College, ;ind two from Will Mayfield College. The conference schedule opened with two wins over the classy Monticello Aggies at the Armory. Following this the West Tennessee Teachers ' gained their revenge at Memphis. Arkansas College met defeat at Aggie in the first game of their series. On the trip down-state the State Teachers ' defeated the Gorillas two games, and Aggie split two with Magnolia. Arkansas Tech was defeated in two close games at the Armory to end the conference schedule. Arkansas College was outclassed on the return game at Batesville. The season closed with two victories over the Will Mayfield aggregation.

M. College in 1928. Miss Baldwin graduated from Oklahoma College for Wo- men ;it Chickasha, Oklahoma, in 1!!2 S, with a Bachelor of Science degree with major in physical education. While in Oklahoma State Col- lege for Women. Miss Baldwin was a very versatile athlete. She participated in almost every phase of athletics, including soc- cer, baseball, basket ball, track, hockey, tennis , archery, rifling, and tumbling. Not only has she participated in these activities, but in them she has excelled. For the state of Oklahoma, she has set the record in shot put and in baseball throw. For the college she has set records in basket ball throw and in discus. These records reflect her versa- tility as an athlete. Although this is Miss Baldwin ' s first year at coaching, she has trained a very successful basket ball team for A. M. College. One advantage which Miss Baldwin has is in the fact that she so recently participated herself that she sees and under- stands the difficulties which her players have. To the end of making a winning team, she has worked long and strenuously. It is needless to say that this year with Miss Baldwin as instructor in physical education that it is one of the most popula • and beneficial courses on the entire campus. Lamb Woo i Davij (Stria Saskrt lall The girls ' basket b;ill team under Miss Myra Baldwin had a very successful season. With only two letter women back a great team was developed, that reached the heights when they held the strong West Tennessee Teachers ' sextette to a sixteen to fourteen score. The Teach- ers are considered as one of the best teams in the South. The complete record for the season was five won and four lost, a good showing. The winning of three out of four games from Lambuth marked a great success for the team. Miss Lamb, captain and jumping center, always played a steady, consistent game, and displayed leadership and co-operation which was always to be depended on to get the best from the team at all times. Miss Mae Parr, running center played good hall all season. She featured in clever floor work and fast accurate passing. She seemed to be everywhere at once. Miss Daisy Woods, forward, was one of the best to every play on the Aggie varsity. A wonderful shot, a clever passer, and a cool head all combined to make her one of the most valuable members of the team. Miss Helen Webb, forward, played her first year on the varsity this year. She was a great help to the team. She was fast and had a good eye for the basket. As for her co-operation with the other forwards, she was splendid. »9 9 pearling Parr Wood Webb Miss Willie Woods, veteran guard, could always be depended on to play a great game. She was always in the thick of the battle, and usually came out with the ball. Miss Delia Davis, guard, was a fast clever player, whom the oppos- ing forward had trouble in scoring on. Her team work was exceptionally good. Miss fteba Holcomb, guard, a consistent player, always delivered the goods. She played a cool, steady game which is necessary for a winning team. Miss Dolores Spence, utility, a versatile player, went when most needed. She filled a forward ' s position nicely, and played a brilliant game at running center. Miss Inez Marsh, utility, played her first college basket ball this year at Aggie. She played either jumping center or guard. In either posi- tion she would turn in a creditable performance. In a review of the season: Bono defeated the varsity by 19 to 17. The varsity had only been out a few days. At Lambuth the varsity divided a couple of well played games. At Memphis, the Teachers won by a large score. Aggie defeated Lambuth two games at the Armory featur- ing the all-round playing of the team. The Teachers won their second game by the close score of 16 to 14. The varsity played their greatest game of the year in this conflict. Shawnee High School was defeated 23 to 22 in a thriller that kept everybody in suspense until the whistle. Bono forfeited their last game. rrmtfi Sram (Birla Saakrl Stall To the seconds of any team much credit is due. They get the hard knocks and little glory, but without them the varsity would not be. The Aggie seconds only played one game, defeating Xettleton High School in a one-sided victory of 40 to 1. The members of the second team will have the experience to add in their bid tor the varsity next season. We predict a varsity position for those that are here and go out for the team. The members of the second team were Beatrice Games, Heba Holcomb, Imogene Mooring, Ernestine Warr, Agnes Pittman. Irene Mc- Fadden, Grace Lauderdale and Jewell Turner. 92p Yearling 3lmttnr iiujh g djnnl Sram The Junior High School team completed a very successful season with a record of six wins and three defeats.

It was on its last trip last spring when it hit its stride again. The hard- est schedule ever played by an Aggie baseball team was played out. It included games with Ouachita, the state champions, Milliken, the state champions of Illi- nois, and the strong team of Southwestern University if Memphis. Out of nineteen games played eight were won and eleven lost. The line-up presented: Captain " Lefty " (loss in right Held; McDonal divid- ing his time between center field and second base; Greenwood playing center when Freddie was in at second; Miller in the left Held; Thomas playing first base position and taking turn on the mound occa- sionally; Penix filling the first base position when Rudy was on the mound; Uughey at short part time and catching part time; Winters playing short, second or third as the occasion demanded; and Byrd alternating between third base and catching. Owens was the ace of the pitching staff; his record for the season was six won and four lost. The games lost were due to lack of support and timely hitting. Charlie has the prospect for one of the greatest pitchers in Arka nsas. We predict a future in baseball for him. Sigman, Burge, Snyder, Mathias, and Williams comprised the rest of the pitching staff. Miller and Byrd were the leading hitters for the season. Goss, McDonal, Hughey, Thomas, Byrd, Mller, and Owens were the brightest stars of the season. The team lost only four men, and the prospects for a winning team in 1929 are very bright. The baseball season opened with West Tennessee Teachers of Memphis, Aggie winning Hi to 3, and 6 to 5. The feature of the game was the hitting of Miller, (loss, and McDonal, and pitching of Owens. The next series of games was played with Ouachita College, Arka- delphia, Ouachita winning both games after hard struggles. Arkansas College of Batesville, was the next foe of the A. M. club. Each club took a game, thence a split. Both the games were hard-fought, with close scores. Our old rivals from the north, .lames Milliken University. Decatur, won two games from A. M. The club from the Illinois college won the state championship for their state last season. 19 9 pearling Sigman Huriiett Phillips Southwestern University, of Memphis, were the next foes. Aggie came out of the games with the small end of the score. The Monette All-Stars were the next opponents of the college club. This game was without doubt the best game of the season.

After the college session had closed in early May, the baseball club made the annual trip, going into Tennessee, to play West Tennessee Teach- ers and Southwestern University, both of Memphi s. A. M. split with each of these teams. The feature of the trip was the hitting of Byrd, and the pitching of Owens and Burge. Bad weather was the worst feature of the year, each game being held down by high winds or rain. sss.-; Winter M :il Inn s U illia tns ; reenw odd Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg Agg laspball 1328 e 4 e . 16 e 6 e 4 e 3 e 4 e 2 e _ 2 e 1 e 8 e 5 e 4 e „ 7 e 4 e 2 e 7 e e 1 e 6 e ._ 87 Lake City 3 West Tennessee Teachers 1 West Tennessee Teachers 5 Ouachita fi Ouachita 5 Arkansas College 9 Arkansas College 1 Milliken University fO Milliken University 11 Weiner 1 Southwestern University ....

MfMto HM| - «4C Frank Hughey is Aggie ' s only four letter man of recent years. Hughey is one of the most versatile that ever attended the Jonesboro Aggie. As a foot- ball player he is one of the greatest in the state. He is a triple thrust man, and even more than that, he drop kicks with deadly ac- curacy. He was captain of the 1928 Gorillas. In basket ball he plays forward, rating last year on the all-conference team. In track he does about everything to be done. In both field and dash events, he is above par. On the baseball diamond, Frank plays short stop part of the time and catches when occasion demands. As for his hitting, his showing last season was exception- ally good. It may be of special in- terest to the friends of Hughey to know that he HmjPf! holds the record of the the United States for the ;est place-kick, with forty-seven yards rennessee Teachers. The olace-kick team to be victors over the Tennessee football season of 1927 and 1928, for the Ion to his credit against the old rivals, West made by Hughey enabled the A. M. College team by a score of 9 to 6. Besides being the most versatile athlete on the A. M. campus for the past number of years, Frank has won his way into the hearts of the A. M. student body by his winning personality. 1929 pearling (Erark C. H. Rogers of Clemson had charge of the 1928 track team. Hard luck pursued the squad all year. Meet after meet was cancelled, until only one was held. The team made a very creditable showing at Jackson, Tennessee, against the strong Union University. Hughey was the individual star of the day, making most of Aggie ' s points. The men that made up the team were: Pierce, Hughey, Love, Samse, Byars, Tyre, Mooring, Hodges, and Kohonke. Srark rnsufrta fur 1929 The track at .lonesboro Aggie is being made one of the best in the country. Track is to come into its own, as one of the major sports at Aggie. Plans are being made for the future. Invitation meets, district meets, and college meets will all be run off on this track. Never before has the prospect for a winning team been so bright in the Aggie camp. A number of high school stars have entered, to strengthen the team of last year. Of last year ' s team most of the men are hack, and Vowells and Lamb of .lonesboro High, Lamb of Marked Tree, Bogan of Paragould, Shelby of Parkin, and others will be out to do their part in making a winning team for the Gorillas track squad. Several meets are being arranged. This year will mark the entrance of a sport at Aggie that has been neglected. With the co-operation of the student body the track team will be one to be proud of. iHap Coup . Moat Popular (girl iautrs urluy Wtlm ICautb most Popular loij Most (Uollrutat? (girl Harutn auorrson .

" Miss Slaughter: " Your first name, please? " F. A. (blushing): " Are ye that interested? " For a number of year A. M. College has been fortunate in having Mr. John L. Hague as chief engineer. His duties have included not only those that the title indicates, hut also those of bus driver on long trips of football and basket ball teams and of start ' photographer. He may be seen at almost any hour of the day on the campus, walking from one source of trouble to another with a monkey wrench in his hand. Radiators, drinking fountains, water meters, and white way come under his surveilance. Much of the smoothness with which the work of thr institution goes on is due to his part in taking care of the physical plant. In addition to bis work as engineer Mr, Hague gives much of his time to the cultivation of flowers and vegetables. For the last few years his chief work has been with bulbous plants. In the spring his tulips are a feast for the eye; later in the season florists make use of his beautiful gladioli. In late summer his mammoth dahlias provoke the admiration of all. His influence as a gardner is not confined to Jonesboro, however. The following excerp from the Arkansas Gazette will afford some idea of bis pro- minence : " J. L. Hague of the faculty of the State A. M. College at Jonesboro, recently received notification from F. C. Hornberger of Hamburg, New York, that a gladiolus spike from Mr. Hague ' s plantings in 1928 was the finest of more than 10,0(1(1 compet- ing spikes of gladioli blooms. " Mr. Hague has been growing gladioli for three or four years and lias specialized in the production of plants with an unusual number of exceptionally delicate tints and colors. " Mi. Hague had more than 10,000 bulbs of 100 different varieties in his plots in 1928. More than 10.000 spikes were shown at the Hartford (Conn.) show, and the variety from which the spikes was selected won the championship cup for the best three spikes in the show for any variety. The same variety won again in Boston and in 1928 in the California gladioli show at Los Angeles. " Mr. Hyslop : " Harold Schnee, what have you done in the laboratory ihis afternoon? Harold: " Nothing. " Mr. Hyslop : " All right, Raymond Vowels, what have you been doing? " Raymond: " Helping Harold. " ShofFner Burge: " If there are any dumbbells in the room, please stand up. " After a slight pause one of the pupils stood up. ShofFner: " Why, do you consider yourself a dumbbell? " Pupil: " Well, not exactly, teacher, but I hated to see you standing all alone. " Miss Livengood: " We ' ll begin the French Revolution to- morrow. All come prepared. " Teacher: " Name a great universal time saver. " Vivien Agee : " Love at first sight. " Motor Cop (to Foster Clark): " So you saw the accident? What was the number of the car that knocked the mad down? " Foster: " I ' m afraid I ' ve forgotten it; but I remember noticing that if it w ere multiplied by fifty, the cubic root of the product would be equal to the sum of the digits reversed.

My wife is out there drown- ing and I sort of thought I ought to save her. " Anybody who demands a tooth for a tooth will never get any satisfaction out of grandpa. Disgusted Diner: " You can ' t expect me to eat this stuff. Call the manager. " Waiter: " It ' s no use; he won ' t eat it either. " 1929 pearling She: " Just fancy Jim ' s refusing to marry you.

" She: " What for? " He: " He wants to know how to sow his wild oats when he goes to Europe next summer. Many a man loses his balance when his wife goes shoping. " What does the professor of Greek get? " " Oh, about $3,000 a year. " " And the football coach? " " Oh, ahout si 2,000 a year. " " Quite a difference? " " Well, did you ever hear 40,000 people cheering a Greek recitation? " Prof.: " Do you swear? " Frosh : " No, sir. " " Drink? " " No, sir. " " Smoke, gamble or tell dirty jokes? " " No, sir.

" Block: " What a unique town, Parkin is. " Tater: " Unique? " Block: " Yes, taken from the Latin, unus meaning one and equus meaning horse. Mack: " Gosh, my roommate sure has vanity. He stands for hours in front of the mirror admiring his good looks. Burnis: " That ain ' t vanity; that ' s imagination. " " I guess I ' ve lost another pupil, " said the professor as his glass eye rolled down the sink. " One way to keep your wife at home — Nail her to the floor. Lipstick and fly paper, they ' re much alike; they catch the careless creatures that pause to investigate. He held the gun to his head, a look of anxiety, eagerness, and fear crossing his face.

Opie: (passing plumber ' s shop and reading sign): " Cast Iron Sinks. " Anybody would know that. No one has ever complained of a parachute not opening. Nine chances out of ten the fellow who says wifie can ' t make biscuits like mother used to make doesn ' t make the rolls like father used to make.

State College, Arkansas. My dear Mr. Whitsitt — Mayhaps it is of little consequence to your worthy self, but my sensibilities were greatly disturbed, and perhaps T might proceed so far as to state that my ire was aroused on the receipt of the compendium of my scholastic record for the preceding semester. It is entirely probable tbat some error was perpetrated in the compiling of the records, but my statement shows that I received " 3 " in French, a subject that I pursued with greatest endeavor and enthusiasm. Please rectify this mistake as soon as it is possible, for such a blot on mv scutcheon must be speedily eradicated. Comprehensively yours, JOSEPH FOSTER CLARK.
