At ihis time 1 want 10 thank the student body tor its splendid cooperation and for the fine attitude expressed in all phases of school work during the entire year. 1 doubt if a finer group of students could be found anywhere. It is with pleasure that I look forward to being with you students who compose the Freshman class again next year. I know that your record as Sophomores will be even better than the one you have made this year. To the Sophomores: It is with regret that we have to give you up. However, we send you forth with a wish that each of you will have a life of continued usefulness and success in whatever you undertake. You will always have a welcome on your return to your Alma Mater. The Students and tea- chers next session will be disappointed, indeed if when the mil is called on Home-coming day you tail to answer to your name. Sincerely yours, 1. M. TUBB. MRS.

G. D. OLIVER I !!1P Nearly two years ago seventy-two ambitious students entered the portals of East Missis- sippi Junior College in the continuance of their quest for knowledge. No adventurer ever set out upon his journey with half so brave a spirit as these green " freshies " who entered into this glorious adventure. To show that we appreciate what has been taught to us and that we intend to abide by it, the Sophomores selected this motto: " With the ropes of the past we will ring the bells of the future. " From the ma ' ny beautiful flowers on our campus we chose the Rose as our class flower. The class colors are blue and white. Time has passed. Our tasks here are finished, and tearfully, yet gladly, we make our exit through the same doors that we so expectantly entered. We must go. Even the tenderest ties that bind us here demand our departure, to face life and to face it squarely. ohh lOftlOXZl 1 1 1 1 1 1 i i i i i i ii i i i i i i i i i 1 1 » v I i i i i i i i i i i i i 1 1 i i 1 1 1 1 1 1 ADAMS, EUNICE A.

President FRANK KALEY Vice-President JESSE RAY FUQUA Secretary MADAEENE CLIFTON Treasurer MYRTLE REESE Reporter BROWNIE LONG MR. HAWKINS It wasn ' t much fun to find that we couldn ' t always do just as we wanted to do, and that sometimes at home our grades didn ' t receive the joyous reception we had ex- pected, hut these disillusionment were infinetesimal, compared to the inferiority-complex we developed through playing maid and valet to our upper classmen. The combination of Home Coming Day with Freshman Day nearly floored us. Belonging to clubs was fun. Even the classes weren ' t as had as we had thought. We sighed as the Christmas holidays closed, but when we were back on the campus, our happy shouts showed how glad we were to be together again. Although we have found that college isn ' t all seeing football games, our enthusiasm for East Mississippi Junior College has become greater and greater. As we turn the pages of the Lion, we will look back upon our first college year and recall memories of some of our most pleasant school terms. jxzsh msn ADAMS, HAROLD Porterville ALFORD, CAROLYN DeKalb AVERY, JAMES CODY Paulette BAGGETT, ROBERTA Philadelphia BAILEY, ILENE Pine Valley BASHAM, CORA CATHERINE Hamilton BAIT, BERTHA Scooba BENNETT, JAMES Vardaman BLACK WELL, EVON Porterville BLANKS, EDWIN Collinsvillc BRASHER, GRADY Sarepta BROOK, MURIEL Smithville BROWN, T.

Now that it is here it has been a richer and fuller year than even we had anticipated. During the first semester there were football games, Thanksgiving holidays, and rings and invitations to o r dcr. After Christmas came basketball season. In March and April a number of our members participated in the literary-field meets held here and in Meridian. On April 9th we presented our class play, " Cinderella Rose. " Then followed our class night exercises, the alumni banquet, and at last the delivering of our diplomas. Our high school days are now over, but they have left their imprint upon our minds and our char- acters. Through them we have been made strong, " To seek, to strive, to find, and not to yield. " ?

" »■— II ■ ■«■« The title Dream Book could well be applied to this collection of pictures and descriptions of ac- tivities at E. M. J. C. during the 1939-40 school year. Yes, a dream book that will in moments of solitude in years to come so bring back memories that you will seem to live again that most beauti- ful time of all — school days. For you who participated in this particular phase of activity, only a slight reminder will be necessary to cause a flood of memories, both happy and trying, to present itself so realistically that you will almost feel again the jar of bodily contact. You will need only the mention of the name Scooba or football to recall the hours of practice spent in preparation for each game. The lessons learned have made lasting impressions on your mind and character and will go with you through life. You who were not members of the team or its accomplices will remember a few of the thr.lls and disappointments that came with the games of this year ' s football campaign. You probably will, however, so blend the remaining events of these games with those of other years that nothing short of a detailed account of each game would recall them to you. If you are to remember anything, remember the team as a whole and the boys that composed it. The team itself was one which showed at times sparks of brilliance that were to die away in the space of minutes and leave everyone muttering the same words, " If they could only play like thai all the time. " The team was one that earned praise for its conduct and caused comment because of its lack of size; a team that had few if any individual stars, except of course in the minds of the players themselves; a team that fought hard, was a good loser, and best of all a good winner.

Having the third best percentage for games won and having beaten, at least once, every top rank- ing team in the circuit except one which it did not play, the boys ' team participated in the annual tournament. Since six lettermen return, equal if not more success is anticipated for the team next year. « » Evon Blackwell, Guard; Truman Sturdivant, Center; Joe Hood, Guard: John Hounds, Forward, Lee McQuary, Forward. y aunzond JDaikstljaLL amz The climax of the baskethall season, as far as the boys ' team is concerned, probably came with the final game of the season. Giving due consideration to the many other brilliant exhibitions of basketball prowness that were given by our team, we are inclined to believe that this one surpassed them all. Not without reason do we hold this contention, for we know in the end — and this was the end — that this Raymond team was the best we played, since we did not have privilege of playing the love team that bettered them either in season percentage or in the tournament. The game itself was one that comes only when two high caliber teams composed cf spirited youth meet to determine, at least for a time, which is superior. This victory and the impressive performance of the freshmen players give the Lion supporters an idea that next year the sky will be the limit. « » L. D.

Although the team won only two out of the fifteen games played, they are to be commended for their good sportsmanship. The highest scorer was Ilene Bailey, who played an excellent game assisted by Carolyn Alford, Melba Chilcoat, Frances Whittle Flynn, and Kathryn Ballard. Playing guard were Ruth L. Hardin, Omera Warren, and Muriel Hall. They were splendid examples of good team work. The reserves, Dorothy Wedgeworth, Ercelle Luke, Muriel Brook, and Elizabeth Skipper certainly deserve the highest praise for their performance in substitute role. E. M. }. C. is looking forward to a very successful season next year. The team will be centered around Ballard, Alford, Luke, Flynn, Chilcoat, Hall, Warren, Bailey, and Brook. « » Ruth L.

Some are just watching a " bang-up " match and others are actually participating in the game themselves. Both dormitories furnish many capable and efficient players who have been striking the ball with quite a bit of precision. A school tournament is being arranged for the near future when medals for singles, doubles, and mixed doubles will be awarded. The probable run ups for singles will be Wesley Grisham, Jesse Ray Fuqua, Ruth L. Hardin, Linton McDonald, Jamie Garner, John Bounds, Elizabeth Skipper, and Phillip Stuart. czTTLQh Jb chooL J aiks-tuall First Row: C. Knight, Lavender, Hopper, H. Knight, Carpenter, Lockley.

Led by Captain Knight, fast stepping guard, and coached by Roy Knapp and M. D. Robinson, they rounded out a very successful season of fourteen games. Carpenter at the forward post was probably the best floor man on the team with a coolness in tight spots and an accuracy of floor shots that were always welcome. His running mate, Lockley, played a smooth, steady game all the season and led in the scoring parade. Atkinson and Lavender are to be complimented for their nice pass work and their exceptional value in taking the ball off the back board. Hopper, small as he was, had plenty of scrap and was tops in keeping up the morale of the team. Gore, Aust, Glasgow, and Boyd did well in the role of substitutes. This group of boys had a wonderful spirit and played clean hard basketball throughout the season. They are looking forward to an even more successful season next year. -Jhz Co Llecj Ian DORIS MILLER Editor-in-Chief MARTIN JOHNSON Business Manager Staff fOY STENNIS Assistant Editor FRANK KALEY Assistant Business Manager ALICE C.

T J s yvluLazr i Studio " Specialists in School Photography " Meridian, Mississippi MISSISSIPPI... aSTATE rich in tradition, is visited by thousands of people each year attending the Garden Pilgrimages and those following the Azalea Trail. The glorious life of the Old South is perpetuated in the minds of those visiting the State during these festive seasons. With a subtropical climate and mild winters, Mississippi s eighty-mile coastal line is a year-round vacation paradise. Great agricultural and lumber interests, with the more recent discovery of oil, help to keep this grand old State in the spotlight of the nation. There are many Junior Colleges in connection with a splendid educational system. The engravings used in this year-book were produced by the South- western Engraving Company of Dallas.
