SURF 1911 ' ♦ ♦ 9 • ' ♦ t ; ■ ♦ I t i) I 1 SURF 1911 i PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS Southern College DR. J. P. H1LBURN FOREWORD The Surf is no longer a dream in the minds of the fanciful, but a reality. Some exponent of the activities and aspirations, the records and reminiscen- ces, yes, even the fun and follies of the student here in Southern College has for some time been in contemplation. There are those who have doubted the possibility of the college annual under the present conditions. To such we wish to say that this book is only a step in the direction of large possibilities. We see the many points wherein our work could be greatly improved upon, yet we believe that the real work of this first edition of The Surf should not be overlooked by contemplating its brilliant prospects for its future successes. For the reason of a late beginning our aim has necessarily become a slight modification of our ideal of a college annual. Although we believe that we still have here between its covers enough of the humorous and satirical to impart, to us and to our worth}- predecessors who have trod this way before, a feeling of ease and freedom, yet enough of the serious side to remind us as we look back upon our college days as days of pleasure mingled with cares — as upon joy departed. The aim of The Surf is to be an artistic souvenir for all. " Ye have en- deavored to treat each separate department as its merits demand. Knowing that the externals of a college year book in a great measure determine its value as a possession, we have put due stress upon the importance of artistic design and neatness of form. Dear readers, we now wish to present to you The Surf for your inspec- tion and criticism. Do not think that we have prepared this little book as a specimen of literary worth. Far from that, for we have left the comprehen- sive and serious side of life for our more worth}- contemporaries. We sin- cerely hope that this little volume will find a warm welcome in the hearts of our friends, and that ever}- one may in after years pursue these passages and meditate over the cherished experiences and inspiring scenes of our renowned Alma Mater. ALEX TOBSON. | ♦ 4 4 ' 4 ■ t 4 ■ 4 ' r ■; " ■ • 4 4 m : : m To Our Beloved Professor EDWIN WALLACE McMULLEN Who has labored so earnestly and diligently for our interests, who loves and understands us, whose life as a Christian has been a constant reminder to the student body, of that ideal of man- hood for which Southern College stands, and whose un- tiring devotion to all that concerns the students, has left him in the memory of those who go out from the school not as a Professor merely, but as a loving brother and friend. This, the first volume of The Surf, is dedicated by the students, the Senior Class, as a token of their love and esteem. I Prof. E. W. McMullen ' ■■•■0 4 Sketch of Prof. McMullen Professor McMullen was born at Bay View. Hillsborough County, Florida, January 26, 1876. He attended the public schools and County High School. He taught in the public schools of ' 96 and ' 98. In the fall of 1898 he entered the State Normal School at DeFuniak Springs, graduating in 1901. He entered Peabody College for Teachers in the fall of 1901, graduating in 1902. In the year 1904 he graduated from the University of Nashville with the degree of B. A. He was elected Vice-President and Professor of Mathe- matics in Southern College 1!)04. Married to Sara Delia Moore December 22, 1904. He was elected Principal of Normal Department in 1!H ( , and Professor of Philosophy and Bible in l!)(i?. He taught in State Summer Schools 1903, 1908 and L909. Received State Teachers ' Certificate 1909. Professor McMullen fills a place today among us that none other can fill. For seven years he has labored with us, seeing all of us enter and leave. We feel that we owe more to him than any other connected with our school days, at Southern. He has lived daily a true, devoted life to Christ and there- by constraining others to follow him. His influence has been indelibly stamped upon the archives of our memory. " His own character shapes the fortune of every man. " We can never repay our dear Professor for his untiring devotion and efforts to make of us men and women. The least we can do is to dedicate to him the first annual. EDNA E.

The date marks the epoch not only in our career, but, we believe, in the history of the institution. We began our journey up the steep and rugged way with good pros- pects of many a day ' s hard work and much burning of the midnight oil ere we reached the much coveted goal and received the longed-for prize of a diploma, but our battles we fought with courage and so laid low all obstacles which came across our pathway. Four years have gone swiftly by and what, when viewed from the standpoint of a Freshman, seemed a long and toilsome path- wav, but when viewed as a Senior, only seems a short and happy journey, with brighter views of work in broader fields lying out before us. As a Freshman Class our number was seventeen, and during our So- phomore year we were formally organized. As the years passed, our class had diminished for several reasons — some had not strength to tight the arduous battles which were necessary for our advancement, some for other reasons have given up the fight or postponed the battle for a more convenient season. Two of our number forged ahead and reached the coveted goal one year before the regular class, until now our class has only the mystic number, seven, and while we do not claim to be the " seven wonders of the world, " we hope to be able to let our light shine out so brightly in our different fields of labor that we shall reflect great credit on our Alma Mater, Southern. The problems we have solved and difficulties we have overcome during these four years will give us clearer insight as to how we shall solve problems in after years and overcome difficulties in real life. So day by day we have forged ahead, looking steadfastly upward and ever onward to the time when we should be prepared to take our places on the stage of life, fitted to do our part and in every way ready for duty. ( )ur class may be called the musical class, as all the members except one are able to play with some degree of skill on various instruments. 1 un- derstand the exceptional member is soon to be initiated into the mysteries of the notes of harmony, as he will learn to express himself by note when he finds he must give vent to feeling which could not otherwise be expressed. We have struggled through the many long recitations, or rather the preparation for recitation — pages of history to be memorized — geometry the- orems which were to many of us knotty problems — the languages to master and other things which since we have mastered them seems so easy as we look back but which when looked forward to, loomed on our horizon like a 33 mighty cloud, which when we drew near only dissolved in mist. We have the distinction of being the oldest class in college, as must of our members have been here during- the four years ' college course and some even having entered in the academic department. We have in our class one who will teach in foreign fields and whose sweet voice will lead the hymns when she worships in a strange country — two who will go forth as physicians and no doubt will make the aches and pains of suffering humanity much less by their skillful use of medicines and surgical apparatus; one who will teach the coming generation how to express themselves in beautiful and expressive language and by her example to raise the standard of expression to a higher plane; two chemists, who by their diligent and careful study and extensive experiments will no doubt make many discoveries which will be of material aid to their brother physicians and bring themselves much renown ; one mu- sician, who will try to introduce melody and harmony into the world of dis- cord. Now as we have each reached the threshold of life into which we will enter with nothing but bright hopes before us, each hoping in his or her chosen field of labor to make a place for himself at the top of the ladder, the first round of which we are now contemplating. Kind readers, if we have in our own estimation valued our accomplishments too highly, remember the old proverb: " Blessed is he that tooteth his own born, for verily it shall be tooted. " ERMA SELLERS, Class Historian. 34 ,1 ,♦■• In Memory. That the world might see and ever know That we are only seven. These lines I write just here below In the year nineteen hundred eleven. To him who sees an angel form In every rough and rugged rock. And sees the brow of angel eyes Behind a pall of matted locks. The world for him has nobler charms Than grovelling in the baser whims Of inwrought hatreds and deceits. For in his heav ' n-born thoughts there seem.-. On every breeze a seraph song. Like distant music o ' er the sea Where flitting echoes waft the sound In measured tones of melody. Nor land nor sea can give to thee The art of sweet simplicity; It lies within the heart of man Along the way Sincerity. As lifts the dawn in early morn To greet the new-born day. So lifts the cloud from off his soul Who leads a soul to light of day. Oh youthful scenes of by-gone days How thy memories linger yet. I cannot, 1 would not these recall Nor can 1 thy joys forget. But those who loved and loving lived A life of living love to men. Their memory cannot die, but live. To crown the toils of living men. So as the last beam fades away At last will peal our parting knell, And echo into the silence Of the past, this our last farewell.

This applies with more than usual appropriateness to the Junior Class of 1911. Our class, though small, contains the germ of prophecy of future development and achievement. The number seven is the synonym of perfection. Such is the number of our class. And. while we do not claim to be perfect — far from it — yet we are aiming at perfection. We began in the Freshman year with the unlucky number thirteen, at least it has proven unlucky in a sense concerning our class. The present num- ber is little more than half the original. ( )ne of the original members. Madam Rumor says, is about to " commit " matrimony. Another has resigned herself to the office and work of a teacher. A third, possessed of an unusually i ?) bright mind, mounted two rings of the ladder at one bound, and is now a Senior. The remainder have scattered to the four corners of the earth, that is, of the State, and have left us little trace of their whereabouts or doings. A glance at the present personnel of the class will reveal one preacher. one prospective surgeon, one M. I)., one housekeeper, two musicians anil one in mdescript. If the preacher ' s future career is to be judged by his present physical development, it will be broad and great in many ways; and if his baritone voice is symbolic of the sounding out of his message, it will be heard far and wide, and even into the future. If, as is alleged. M. D. ' s thrive on the misfortunes of their fellow men, this applies with peculiar appropriateness to our M. D., as he is a Feaster. I If the remaining four it will not be necessary to say much in particu- lar, yet the writer may be pardoned for just mentioning that when one of these trills her violin strings, many hearts on the left side of the auditorium go pit- a-pat, while another, lifting her voice in song bears them away to the realm of music, sunshine and gladness ; and the smile of yet another is like the bursting forth of the sun from behind the clouds; while the one not vet mentioned in particular, should any point of distinctive merit be discovered, waits for its description by a more gifted pen than that wielded by the writer. ( )ur members hail from the following States: New York. Texas and Florida — three of the greatest in the Union. When our school work is over, Southern will have extensive advertise- ment, nor shall she ever regret, we trust, that we passed through her halls and out into the world to represent her. J( YCE MANX.

" Last night as I lay sleeping, There came to me a dream so fair ; Me thought I stood in old Sutherland Beside the college there; Me thought I saw the postcards flying — Like clouds they filled the air. " HERE were tin postcards, paper postcards, wooden postcards, and postals of leather. So because of my unwomanly charac- teristic curiosity, I was anxious to know the meaning of so many postals. On looking closely, I found one to be the pic- ture of a beautiful little cottage, surrounded by pretty flowers, and everything home-like, and this is what it said : " Have changed my mind ; this is my home, and am happy as can be. Cornelia Brittle. " Far in the distance I saw an unusually large postcard, on which was a picture of a beautiful baseball diamond, surrounded by a grandstand, and also a picture of the interior of the National Senate Chamber. My thoughts natur- ally turned to Burleson, and on looking found these words : " Am pitching a few balls and making a few laws. " A whole host of postcards drifted by me. but none of them seemed to be for me, until an especially noticeable one, the photo of a typical society man, in tact a dude with a high silk hat and cane. This Maurice Yearty had sent as his own photo. For a while everything was dark, and I was unable to distinguish any- thing, except that clouds of something w r ere moving about me, when suddenly there was a card in my hand from Marion Worley, saying she was in Germany studying music at Berlin. A gust of wind snatched this one from me, but soon another took its place. I found it to be one from Mr. Daniels, saying he was doing evangelis- tic work, and his young bride was with him. Still another card was from Mr. Bracco, which contained a bird ' s-eye view of Wall Street, saying he had cornered the market in wheat. Now my postcard reception was suddenly ended, for someone was call- ing me to get ready for school, and I awoke to find all my postcards gone, and my " card reception " to be only a dream. PROPHET, ' 13. 4 8 Sophomore Roast. T ( FTEN happens that the Sophomore Class of a college is forced to pass through the trying ordeal of being continually roasted all the year. This fearless class has appeared not only to enjoy being drawn through the fiery furnace of scholastic tribulation by others, but the members themselves seem to take the greatest delight in mutuall) a crisp. roasting each other to Last week this dauntless class passed into a recitation room for sixty minutes of sound discussion on twelve pages of text-book lore, but the spirit of aggressiveness, more commonly known as Old Nick, possessed the entire class, even to Mr. Bracco. The teacher ' s dignity did not affect them, so he at last decided to let them " have it out. " So he sat quietly at his desk taking it all in. " h, Mr. , I ' ll tell you why we never know our lessons in the afternoon, " chirped Marion Worley. " The west sun shines in the window right on Burleson ' s ties, and the reflected light is so brilliant that we have to close our eyes, and of course we can ' t study with our eyes closed. " " Why do you say ties? " asked Hattie Sue Brown, " I am sure he wears only one at a time. " " Yes, but he wears a different one each day. Monday it ' s red, Tuesday, green, Wednesday indigo, and just look at the one he has on today. " All looked. ' " He hasn ' t any on now, because he just this minute sneaked it into his pocket, " said Yearty. " Cornelia, please lend me your dictionary, " whispered Bracco. " Why. Joseph Bracco, what has come over the spirit of your dreams that you are going to consult a dictionary? " asked Daniels. " Well, I ' d like to find out the meaning of a few words, " Bracco an- swered, who had been musing for five long months. " Better not, Bracco, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. " " Oh, but Hattie Sue ' s mind is getting off her lessons, " put in Cornelia. " I wonder what is the matter? " " O, I don ' t mean her mind, but another important organ that flutters at the approach of a boy. " HISTORIAN, ' 13. « - HP FRESHMAN ' 11. 44 » « «■« Freshman Roll. Colors — Black and Red.

T THE opening of Southern College in the fall of 1.910, there was not a noticeable advent of green Freshies, as there pro- verbially is at most colleges. Only three of the twelve quali- fy 1 Freshmen had come to Sutherland for their first time. Timberlake. Funk and Hays, being bright boys, were at once taken in hand, and by now practically all traces of greenness have been removed. The class was organized January 31. Harry Collins was elected Presi- dent, for his superior skill in and knowledge of parliamentary law and prac- tice. Juanita Pi pkin was evidently the best person suited for the secretaryship, and as Ralph has belonged to a family of Sellers for some sixteen years he was judged best qualified to take in and handle the extensive financies of the class. We thought Hays would be able to write good poetry, as his room-mate, Tim- berlake. is very suggestive of natural scenery, which is so essential to a first- class poet. Any fault finding with the history must be laid to the fault that the historian is Young. Committees were also appointed for drawing up a brief constitution, and for determining what should be the class emblems, motto, etc. Five of us can date our connection with the college back to the fall opening in 1908. A few even farther, but we are not constructing an account of our childhood days. Herbert Fussell has been a student in Southern longer than any other of the class. It was at the opening of the Spring Term in 1909 that Knight fell upon us, and although he is still asserting his presence the intellectual light and prospects of the class have never been much darkened thereby. Very well we remember our struggles with Caesar and Algebra through 1908 and L909. Last year nine of our present number were here. What a hard proposi- tion we were for Miss Bower in English! But she was equal to the exigency. ( )ur memory will never fail us concerning Burke ' s Conciliation with America, or Macbeth. Neither will we forget very soon about Miss Griffith ' s memo- rable Cicero examinations. But she is still doing the class the same way in other Latin classics. 46 We have a very interesting class this year, if we do say it ourselves. For if we don ' t say it. who will? Hays has been a newspaper reporter and oc- casionally writes short stories. Winston Lawler is catcher on the famous Southern College baseball team. Funk is distinguished by his remarkable oratorical language, and Miss Booth by her excellent English composition, while Miss Baugh sings in the choir. Our class has always made a specialty of mathematics, and has been the recipient of many compliments thereon. Prof. Cecil went so far as to say that we handed in the worst set of test papers in Trigonometry that he had ever seen. No doubt the trouble is due to the fact that we are so smart and make the mistake of trying to get on without studying. Our English class has been very interesting this year, especially on ac- count of the " book outlines " each day. Every day one member has given an original synopsis of some work of a standard author. The Freshman class has been tossed around from one teacher to another until it hasn ' t much chance to learn French. When finally we did get settled down with a real good teacher, Miss Lloyd, who would apparently stay with us, she contracted a case of measles. The sciences are not very popular with the Freshman class. All of us are taking the literary course except Ruth Baugh, Billy Knight and Franklin Young. Latin and Greek seem to be more desired than science. We are all determinately interested in our work, and the outlook for the future is bright indeed. Some of us may possibly drop out, but new ones will perhaps fill our places. To them will be transmitted the spirit and en- thusiasm of the class and they will move forward with the rest to the shining goal. From the present prospects, the class of 1914 will undoubtedly ever stand forth as a fit example of the achievement of the lofty aim and high class work of the students of Southern College.

E THOUGHT of heading this " The History of the Senior Class of the Sub-Fresh Department, " but then we were afraid some ignoramus might think we belonged to that dignified Senior bunch of the College Department. While we are not con- ceited, we are not going to receive our A. B. degrees with that " gang. " In the fall of 1910 there gathered in Prof. Kensinger ' s " place of abode " a body of knowledge seekers which was great to look upon as re- gards number, and intersting to behold in regard to variety. Any girl in this Hall of Fame may select her a worthy hero from the fiery top of a Mountain to the cool and gently bubbling Fountain in the valley, the latter being no less worthy, even though he abides in the valley of the shadow of ignorance con- cerning Creek and Latin. Also, the girl choosing anyone between and includ- ing these two may have the assurance that the object of her choice is, at least, in " her class. " We might say the boys on the other hand enjoy the same privilege ; but, as we belong to the Fourth Year Class, our time is too precious. We hail from many different states and a few different nations. There- fore, English is carelessly handled when we are in session. Again Virgil doesn ' t care much — our grades being witness — whether we are wealthy enough to afford an automobile, or being too poor for that, have to put up with a pony. However, the time is not far distant when we (some of us) will be denounced as masters of Virgil ' s Aeneid, if we and Prof. Ken singer live and don ' t get expelled. As we said before we are not conceited, nor boastful, but can truthfully assert that we are the best represented class we ever saw — ranging from all the societies, to as many baseball and basket ball teams. Our President, Mr. Wicker, being the star player of both first teams in basket ball and the other one, too. He makes good grades, too, in class work, whether riding or walk- ing, I dare not tell. Our Secretary also can but win honor to her class, being co-operative with the President in all he undertakes for the mutual uplift of himself and others. Our poet we could not forget, even if we so desired. For 53 we can truthfully say he possesses one of the brightest heads that ever sought recognition in the famous halls of Southern College. Our Treasurer, Miss Mary Conrad, who has dreamy brown eyes and womanly instinct behind them sufficient to carry honor for anything with which she is connected, is too well known to warrant us in praising her here, so we won ' t say anything about her. We could not be so unappreciative as to forget our beloved teacher, who has labored so devotedly in our behalf since first we heard the moaning of the grand old pines of Southern College and viewed for the first time the effect said moaning had in giving him a grand and impressive countenance. We have been patiently and lovingly led by his untiring efforts through paths that few have been fortunate enough to tread. And in the coming years when Senate chambers and Chapels ring echoes of our wisdom and eloquence our patient instructor of today may have long since received his plaudit of " well done, thou good and faithful servant, " but who can say that his influence will not be living and growing in our heart of hearts. And last, but not least, none will dare dispute any fact found herein. PAUL A. FLETCHER, Class Historian. 53 - . ' Our Bunch. 11 We are the happiest bunch that go to school, For in our class we have the wise as well as the fool. We smile at the girls and wink at the boys, Study cur math, and make a big noise. The boys think of their girls, the girls of their satin, But not a one about their Latin ; So we take life as it comes and look for the best, For when we get in college we wil do the rest. So when we are old and have traveled life ' s weary way, We can look back with pleasure on our Sub-Fresh class in Al-ge-bra ; Now if a happy bunch you should want to see, Just look for the Sub-Fresh class in old S.

LL GAUL is divided into three parts, the first of which the Primary inhabit, another, the Preparatory, and the third, who in their own language are called Academics, in the language of others " Sub-Freshies. " All these differ among themselves in teachers, studies and customs. Deep rivers of Latin and History separate the Academy from the Prep, while moun- tains of Science and Modern Language separate the Academy from the College. Of all these the Primary are the bravest, for they are far- thest away from the culture and humanity of the College, and irregular stu- dents come least often to them, so they do not acquire those customs which pertain to the weakening of the mind. Then they are nearest to the founda- tion of mathematics, with which they wage war continually. For which cause the Sub-Freshmen excel in strength, because they contend with mathematics in almost daily conflict, when the) ' either conquer or are conquered. The part which the Academy occupies takes its beginning in the first year. It touches the Prep, on the south and the College on the north and looks toward the Senior Class and Diplomas. 58 ; 59 ♦« d . « . , A . i 2 p u 60 Music Roll.

Xli ' .HT was fast lifting from the Timberlake and leaving behind it a faint Hays. A Young Freshman, with his best girl, was journeying to the lake to try his hand as a Fischer. He was not afraid that his angling would Funk, for he was a Burle-son of his time, and was almost a Mann. Just before they arrived at the lake, they crossed over a Hill, upon which there was a Fountain. The girl was riding at a Canter, and singing a Bare-lay on a high Key. At length they arrived at the scene of action. Near the Edge of the water, they left their cooking utensils, among which was a couple of salt Sellers. In moving about they disturbed a Byrd which had been Baskin in the Summer ' s sun, and which retreated into the shade of a nearby Bower of Brittle shrubbery. Lying in the boat was a large Coyle of rope. In one side of the boat was a dangerous hole, but it was soon stopped with a Cobb. They embarked, and, arriving at the fishing ground, the girl Bates her hook, throws it into the water and awaits the pleasure of the finny tribe, which she knows will surely Feaster. The water was rather Lowe, but they succeeded in catching a Wicker basket full of fine specimens. Then they returned to shore, built a fire, fried the fish Brown, cooked some Rice, and prepared lunch in every way. Afterwards they indulged in a sand Battle, but the girl soon became Moody, for the Freshman was too strong a Thrower for her. The Freshman tried to appease her, but she stood Pat on her anger, and he could Doolittle. She became Red in the face, burst into tears and the storm was soon over. On the way home they passed a Mountain, near which they killed a Turkey. At a refreshment Booth connected with some lumber Mills they secured cold soda. Just before reaching home a solitary Walker was passed. Home being reached, each was content with the pleasure of the Day. OTTO M. HAYS, ' 14. 74 75 • • ' ♦■ ■ re % • % ♦ •♦♦ % « v • jui A .

This society has for its object the cultivation of literary taste, the expression of thought in good English, sisterly love among its members, and the promotion of all those things calculated to make a girl a musician, a reader, and a profound thinker. The name, Erolethean, which comes from the Greek, and means " Lovers of Truth, " naturally suggests the motto, " Truth Conquers all Things. " It is the desire of every member of the society that the interest now manifested may continue, and that much good may be done by it in years to come. • ■♦•1 Members.

Thro ' endless days ! 4 4 ■4 4 ♦ w u o o so HE PHI-SIGMA LITERARY SOCIETY was organized Oc- tober 31, 1891, while our College was situated at Leesburg. Since the day of its organization it has held regular weekly meetings, rendering interesting and instructive programs of debates, orations and declamations. The Phi-Sigma enjoys a past membership of over three hundred, among whom are some of the most prominent professional and commercial men of this and other States. The fact that we have won three of the four inter-society medals offered in the past two years, shows that we are turning out good speakers each year. On March 11th our hearts were made sad by the death of one of our fellow members, Clyde Carlton. This is the first time our ranks have ever been broken by death. In the decease of Clyde, the society suffered the loss of a most loyal and intelligent member. On the evening of March 18th we celebrated the Twentieth Anniver- sary of the Phi-Sigma Literary Society, rendering a program which impressed upon the minds of all who heard it the great work being done by the Society. The speaker of the evening, Rev. Marvin H. Norton, one of the early mem- bers of the society, delivered one of the most eloquent addresses ever heard in the College Auditorium. To excel in literary work does certainly seem to be enough, but further than this the star athletes are to be found under the banners of the old Phi- Sigma. The spirit of fraternity among the members is highly gratifying. They stand by each other and when some object is to be gained, do not go about it in a haphazard way, but work together with a will. It is largely this fact that has enabled our society to establish the prestige which it now enjoys. " I want some recognition, " said the boy to the old; " To have a sayso of my own, not do just as I ' m told ; To make some forward progress. " Then the knowing one replied, " You ' ll join the old Phi-Sigma and help strengthen Southern ' s pride. " At last, when life is ended on this little globe of ours, When we ' ve finished all our reaping, partly weeds and partly flowers. And we stand there interviewing good Saint Peter with his keys, " Oh! You say you ' re Phi-Sigma? Pray enter if you please. " ORION O.

History N THE Fall Term of 1906 there being so many girls, it seemed ' necessary to form a new literary society ; added to this reason was the good natured rivalry shown when two societies are contesting for honors. Then was born the Sigma Delta So- ciety, which chose for its colors Crimson and Gray, and its flower American Beauty Rose and Spanish Moss. The motto then chosen, " Be What You Seem to Be. " has been the guid- ing principle of the girls who have helped to make its history. During the first two years the society met in the chapel, until President Hilburn kind y gave us our lovely hall, which has been finished in our colors, and handsomely furnished The colors have since been changed to Brown and Gold, and the flower to Brown-eyed Daisy. Our membership has increased till there is the need of more room, which has been promised us. Sula E.

X THE Fall of 1906 Southern College had grown so large in number of students, that the young men of the school began to realize that one Literary Society was not enough to insure the best progress in every way. It was therefore thought best to organize another young men ' s literary society. The charter membership of this new society was composed of a few of the already organized society and others that up to that time were ni it members of any. The question as to what would be the constitution and by-laws, was easily decided. A University graduate, and one whose knowdedge of Literals- Society work is second to none, was consulted and he was read}- to help in drawing up the rules of the new society. The name chosen was " The Philomathean Literary Society, " repre- sented by the Greek letters . The interpretation of the word " Philo- mathean " is, the lover of knowledge. This is a characteristic of each member of the society even to this day. Our Motto is " Excellence, " our colors " Black and Gold. " Here ' s to the pennant Of the Black and the Gold ; May she ever wave O ' er the true and the bold. Since our organization we have ever been moving toward the goal that is placed as high as Heaven. Men have gone from our walls out into the busy world, wdio already have accomplished much and who are competent to do many more wonderful things. With all due respect to our brother society, we in concert exclaim, " We would not for worlds dissolve our organization. We love it, we support it in our prayers and every effort. It is making real men of its members, and, the members are making real the aspirations of those wdio organized it. From year to year we have been moving ahead. And, with that spirit of determination, that will not give up. we are still working. Success shall be ours. 89 " t A ■ A . ' A . A .• We have been laboring under many difficulties, such as meeting any- where we could get together, having many things to conflict with om time ot meeting, and having hard things said about us. We have been persecuted, but as Paul exhorted the Corinthians, we have suffered it and have prayed for our persecutors, and always looked up to him who guideth all things aright, and to Him we attribute all our success. At one time our membership became very small and the end seemed near at hand, but as we rallied forth with new efforts we began to gain and not in any wise do we bring up the rear now. Not for one moment is there any boasting of never making any mis- takes on our part, but the mistakes are so very few when compared to the good works we have achieved. All members are loyal and ready. There have been no dissensions among our members, and if such should occur we would feel dishonored. When there has been a struggle for honors, our men have ever been ready to meet the occasion. We hold medals showing the ability of our speak- ers on different occasions. We have always aimed at the top, and for the top we are bound. Work- ing and praying we go, and if any one moves faster toward the goal than we he must be a hustler. We believe that our past history is merely an introduc- tion to the great history that our society will make as the years come and go. SANKEV F. STEPHENS, Society Historian. Roll of Members. W. C.

The western sun had bowed its Golden head, The murmuring pines breathed music sweet, The sunset clouds against the blue dome red, Had slowly beat a calm retreat. Alone in her room a maiden sat, With head bowed down and brain in whirl, She had worked and worked on a problem great, But she never could its secrets unfurl. She left her Math, but all in vain. There was still that feeling of unrest and pain. She must always change for something new, I ' ve had that feeling, haven ' t you? When the mind won ' t act in the proper way, When it ' s filled with loving thoughts all day, A girl cannot think of an English text, When she thinks of the boy at the social next. But that age doesn ' t last so long, Girls know that knowledge to them belong; So as the twenties are neared in age, Other things than boys her times engage. The College Annual is to be gotten out, And that means work without a doubt; Her senior thesis disturbs her mind, In continued perplexities her brain we find. But the week before Commencement begins, There ' s a satisfied feeling creeping in. Her past ambition, now realized, A College graduate with no disguise. NETTIE PLUNKETT, ' 11. ' .is 991 H L1F£.

Mitchell Ira Hill Leroy Smith Many curious persons have asked to know the meaning of the name " Bolliver, " and from whence it came. But the real meaning of this word has never passed the lips of any one of its members for the penalty to disclose a secret is a fine of ten cents, so all secrets are safe. This club is unique, and one would have to be well versed in the mysti- cism of Swedenborg to get a correct understanding of its mystical existence. The club, however, touches earth and earthly things occasionally and enjoys itself with the edibles which delight the mucous membrane of the hard-study- ing college boy. The Bolliver is destined in its mystical existence to do some wonderful things in future as it has done in the past. Some of its doings have astonished many (including the faculty) as no one seemed to know just how they hap- pened. But- " Be Careful " is one of its commandments. II. II. Baskin, the Sphinx-like President, can think up more things to do than the Old Boy himself, while Thomas Conrad, of smiling face, the scribe, can record them as fast as the President can think them. Bill Knight is the sailor when the club takes a trip on the bay, and Ira Hill is chief cook when it comes to c ooking chicken, etc. Robert Bryan is official fence climber for the famous " Florida Russets, " and has never torn his clothes on barbed wire but twice. Leroy Smith and L. S. Mitchell were two faithful members, but circumstances called them home. One of the Bolliver ' s most faithful members, Clyde Carlton, was re- moved from the club circle by the silent hand of death and all lamented its sad loss. 106 Love and the Night. There was no moon, the heavens wept, The world shrieked dark with wind and rain. There were no stars, the angels slept, The voice of night was hoarse with pain. But what tho ' the wind howled in the pine, What tho ' the world was bleak and blind? There was no woe, Heaven swung low, Thy hand held mine ! Oh ! what a moon that poured her gold Into the starry cup of night ! Angels smiled, Earth was not old, The blissful breeze blew low and light ; But what to ' the lily swayed new born, What tho ' the rose glowed pink as dawn? Life was a sigh, Heaven swung high, Thou wast gone. -L. V. Lloyd. 107 TENNIS. 108 - - . ..-■ - -■-- ' - 109 Thirty-Love. Upon the tennis courts we met, When morning skies bent blue above.

EPWORTH LEAGUE. 114 % ♦•♦♦ ' « m ■■i Epworth League. Colors: Old Gold and White. Emblem: Maltese Cross. Flower — Violet. Motto— " All for Christ. " The Epworth League has a special and characteristic part in college life; the League comprising, as it does, the highest aims of an educated man or woman, viz: intellectual, social, and religious. It also gives an opportunity for an expression of religious experience, which is a prime requisite for the development of Christian character. And so as it is true with an individual, it is true of the religious life of a college, that in order for religious growth there must be an active and outward ex- pression of its religious belief. So therefore to the increasing and ever changing host of young life that throngs our numbers, the purpose of the Epworth League is to inspire and awaken a desire of righteous living. And as our motto, " All for Christ, " indi- cates, our every talent may be consecrated to His service. Officers Garfield Evans President W. A.

Managing Editor W. C. Baugh Exchange Editor Miss Ruth Baugh, Sigma Delta Society Local Editors Miss Blanche Warren, Erolethean Society Garfield Evans, Phi Sigma Society Athletic Editor Otto M. Hays, Philomathean Society Alumni Editor Miss Eva Barclay, ' 09 The most southern of any college journal in the United States, there is the same warmth of blood in our circulation as characterizes that of our name- sake, Southern College. We are not quite three years old, but we ' ve had our " picchers tuck, " and here we are. Our Managing Editor has been in school ever since he was eight years old — whenever that was — and between schools and in schools, has " shoved the pen, " writing many a page of business books, and still found time to keep in touch with the great journalistic world. He has " done time " on the coun- try weekly and the city daily, hustled copy, set type, run the press, and mailed the output. " Nuf sed. " The younger writers and poets have in him a friend whose wide experience enables him to render real help. He is something of a " litterateur, " having written many poems, stories and educational essays, which have found their way into the magazines and papers. He is the author of the beautiful state song, " Florida, My Florida. " The Alumni Editor, beneath a serious countenance, hides a Twain-like sense of humor that sustains her in a very trying situation — that of trying to drive ideas through hair and bone. Of the many splendid alumni of Southern College, she stands in the front ranks, being successful both as a student and as a teacher. Her literary powers and tastes are worthy of a more congenial atmosphere than the dry dust of Latin verbs and mathematical roots. But it is reported sub rosa that she will have a new position before the next Annual is issued. The Athletic Editor has had a real newspaper experience, ranging from " weaklies " to metropolitans, from " devil " to covering " assignments " and mail- ing clerk. He has traveled much, even in the traditional box car, and has ac- quired a fine vocabulary of the latest jingo in his various reporting experien- 121 m ces. He writes poetry of a superior sort ; and, except that, like a true journal- ist, he never gets excited enough to raise his pulse or voice above normal, would stand at the top as an orator. What the Phi Sigma Local Editor is not, is easier to count than what he is — Secretary of the College Sunday School and the State Epworth League. and College Librarian, besides a score of less exacting things. He has been known to put in sixteen hours a day at school besides doing his own cooking. He bursts forth in a clever poem or oration when he can find time. It is with regret that we will lose him from our staff this year; his place will be hard to fill. The Exchange Editor is a step-daughter of Florida, having first lived in the Blue Grass State. Coming south was her first exchange experience — " The Old Kentucky Home " for the " Swanee Ribber " land. The next was the Tampa schools for Southern College, where she was elevated to her present position as Mistress of the Pastepot and Scissors. Her tastes favor peanuts, doughnuts and chestnuts. Of the Erolethean Local Editor it may be said that she ' s " on to her job, " and knows a good thing when she sees it, especially if it ' s Wat she ' s she ' s looking for. She ' s got her " nerve, " too. The following story is apropos: The Managing Editor assigned her to cover a shorthand contest re- cently, and picked up her " Amanuensis. " From confused rapid glances in a certain direction he at once suspicioned " a nigger in the woodpile, " but as- sumed an unsuspecting air and began dictating. Later, carefully managing to drop the book, out came a forbidden billet doux. Without a sign of having noticed it, the dictation proceeded, while the little white paper lay in full view. She shoved her pencil without looking and lost several words. She felt the next move of the dictator would be to pick up the letter, and then — no more " trunk socials " for her for a long four weeks. And he did pick it up, returned it to the book, apparently without noticing what it was, and laid the book on the table. In a jiffy she had that note nestling next a wildly beating heart, " safe and secure from all alarms, " and heaved a relieved sigh as she winked at her neighbor. But she covers her assignments well and always smiles. We are planning more improvements, and as the College grows the Southern will grow; for our lives and aims are one. In after years when the present staff shall have handed in their last " copy " and passed into the sanc- tum of the divine Editor in Chief, successful alumni of Southern College will consult our files for a history of the institution — and the first contribution of noted authors. Then our little journal will have a value beyond price. And what memories a perusal of our pages will recall of the happy college days at dear old Southern. 4 • 4 • ! • 122 wMm if a. 123 •♦• Athletics. In the Fall of L909, when the call was made for candidates for the Varsity Basket Ball Team, it was announced that Southern would line up against the other colleges of the State in this spurt. The time was ripe for inter-collegiate athletics. The " Fellows " had long believed that in this game they could lay it over anything in the State, and this announcement was met with yells of long-pent enthusiasm. This was the birth of inter-collegiate athletics at Southern College, and the success we have met with in the past two years is probably without a parallel in the State. Our teams have carried off victory after victor} ' until defeat has almost be- come a lost word in the vocabulary of our athletics. The team lived up to our expectations by carrying off the State cham- pionship. Encouraged by this record, we arranged a baseball schedule with the colleges of the State. The services of Mr. A. O. Burleson as coach were secured. " Burley. " as the boys call him, by good hard practice, developed an " aggregation " which was the " aggravation " of the other teams. Out of the thirteen games played we tied one and lost but two, thereby winning the college championship. In the Fall of 1910 most of the old basket-ball men returned, with the result that we again took the championship, losing but one game in the season. As this goes to press it is too early to predict our record in baseball for 1911, but from the line-up and the hard practice the " Big Boy " is giving the squad, we believe their record will lie up with last year ' s. Southern stands for clean athletics. No professional player, except our coach, has ever played on one of our teams. Every man has an equal chance and when a ' Varsity team is picked it is but an illustration of Darwin ' s law, ' The survival of the fittest. " The future for athletics is indeed bright. With our finely equipped gymnasium, our growing attendance and college spirit, we may hope to lie even more victorious in the future than we have been in the past. Before closing we wish to express our gratitude to Prof. E. W. Mc- Mullen for the interest he has taken in the financial side of team athletics, and to our Physical Director and Coach, A. O. Burleson, who has shown an inter- est and loyalty to Southern College far beyond that of the average instructor. And just a minute, boys. Has any other team in the State a loyal and true-hearted fan like Mr. W. P. Hartman? When we win he is happy, and when we lose he is ???? All together! Nine rahs for Mr. Hartman, and may his voice long be heard on the athletic field. 124 ♦ ♦• ♦ 7, ' :;. Tt - ALL SOUTHERN BASEBALL TEAM. ' Varsity Baseball Line-up.

I The Countess of Chamberd was a woman of impulse, and an American. When she decided — upon an impulse — that her husband ' s nephew, the Duke of Rexhall, should marry Elizabeth Vaughan, the thing was as good as done. That Rexhall happened to be a peer of England, and Elizabeth an American heiress, did not prevent their being, as well, human man and human woman. She had even reached the planning of the honeymoon when the young duke sauntered across the chateau terrace, sighted his aunt, and called out cheerily: " Good afternoon, Tante. " " Cris! " she welcomed him. " You got my wire? " " Less than two hours ago in Paris. And here ] am. " He bent over her finger tips. " What can I do for you? " " I want you to marry my little American friend. Elizabeth Vaughan, " she answered promptly. He laughed at what he called her " delicious American humor. " " That ' s very nice of you, Tante, but I ' m awfully in love with another girl. ' He seated himself opposite her. " That ' s because you ' ve never met Elizabeth, " was her answer. " Perhaps. But you know there ' s never really but one. When you ' ve met her all the rest don ' t count. " He regarded her attentively. " Who is she? " " I don ' t know her name. Call her Aphrodite, " said the duke, dreamily. " My dear Cris! Impossible! " The countess was very conventional. " But you expect me to love a girl I ' ve never seen. That ' s more impos- sible, " he protested. " You will see her this afternoon. And to see Elizabeth is to love her. " " Show me, " observed the duke. " Delighted, " said the countess, briskly, " and now tell me of Aphrodite. " " There ' s not much to tell, " confessed his grace. " We met at Rouen. She was crossing the street, a motorcycle came along. She stopped at the wrong time. There ' d have been an ugly smash up if I hadn ' t been lucky enough to — er — pull her out. We talked a bit; then she disappeared. That ' s all. I ' ve been looking for her everywhere. When I find her I shall marry her. " 128 . ' ■ His aunt regarded him in open disapproval. " Cris, you are entirely too English, " she reproached. " Would you love me more if I were less so? " He arose and towered over her, but his voice was tender. " No, but I ' d manage you more easily, " she retorted, calmly, turning her back on him and walking away. He stared after her, laughing a big English laugh. Then he, too, strolled across the terrace, staring idly down a broad expanse of turfy lawns, through vistas of lilac blooms and spring sunlight. At the end of the lawn was an iron gateway, shutting the chateau grounds from the highway. The duke ' s glance focused itself upon the gate, and upon a figur which stood before it. A woman was making vain efforts to lift the latch. For a moment she strug- gled. Then, with a little gesture of despair, put her hands to her face and leaned heavily against the bars of iron. The duke went to the rescue. When he was within greeting distance he stopped abruptly and stared. " )h! " cried the duke. It ' s you! " And he walked toward her. The girl did not speak. " Do you remember me? " His tone was humble. " Yes, " she confessed. " You saved my life at Rouen. " " I ' m sure you weren ' t ready to die; you look very young and happy. " The duke spoke tenderly. " But I ' m not happy. I ' m very unhappy. I want to get out and I can ' t. She tugged at the gate again. " But I don ' t want you to get out. I want you to stay in. You belong in, don ' t you? " he asked, anxiously. " I am supposed to belong in. But there are reasons — a reason — why I prefer to be — out. I ' m running away, " she concluded, deliberately. " Running away? From whom? " " From a man. " " I ' m quite ready to help you do that, " said the duke, gallantly. " Of course I shall ask you to say nothing about it. You aren ' t supposed to have seen me. Can I trust you ? " " Can you? " He looked into the loveliest eyes in the world — to him. She put her hand in his. " I am sure I can. " " Now tell me about it, " he asked. " It ' s all the countess ' fault. She and mother have been planning for some time. Now they both think fo nothing in the world except ' my boy, ' ' dear Cris. ' " Little drops of perspiration trickled down the ducal forehead. " Cris? " he echoed. 129 " The Duke of Rexhall, the Countess Chamberd ' s nephew. " explained the girl. " The countess and mother have planned to marry us to each other. Nice, isn ' t it ? " " Are mil sure? " he asked. " Yes; and they have sent for him, they ' re so afraid I ' d escape before he comes. " " Is there another man? " The duke scraped his foot in the gravel. She looked at him under her eyelids and had the grace to blush. " No. I ' m going to Algiers with the Friedmans. " " Do you think the duke is so very bad? " pleadingly. " While he may nut lie a villain, he may be the biggest prig ever. But mother and the countess rave about his classic nose, sapphire eyes and Greek form. )h dear, I ' m so tired of his perfections! " " Don ' t believe all the}- say about his looks — it ' s all popycock, " the duke cried. She stared at him with a queer little look in her young eyes. " Do you know him? " she demanded. " Being a guest at the chateau, I naturally heard of him. I think I have also heard some of the talk you mention. " he lied smoothly. " And you see how impossible it is for me to remain, " she put in. " Won ' t you open the gate for me? " pointing at the huge piece of iron, The duke struggled with the gate for a minute, opened it, and the girl walked out. He followed. " Are you expecting to walk? " he asked. " Yes, it was the only way. " " Do you like the prospect? " pointing down the road. A merciless glare stretched before them. The next moment a pillar of cloud suddenly arose in the distance, growing larger and cloudier every mo- ment until it was upon them. A motor burst through the cloud and went past them with a roar, leaving the duke and the girl groping through the dusty wake. " Look out. " warned the duke. " Here comes two more. " Instinctively he threw out a protecting arm. For a brief moment her fingers touched it. ' Like the journey of the Israelites, ' mimented. " How do vou like it? " " Between this and the man, I prefer this, " she said decisively. " I say. " cried the duke, " if you ' ll wait a jiffy I ' ll get a motor and take you i iver. " As the girl hesitated, the duke bowed and introduced himself as Am- brose Montford, anil she in turn announced her name as Elizabeth Vaughan. 130 % • » As he sped up the road after the car, the splendid set of his shoulders, the dash of gold about his head as the sun ' s rays struck it, the clean, fresh young- manhood so potently manifest did not fail in their effect. A few moments later she was safely tucked away in a large white tour- ing car, and Chateau Chamberd was a mere speck in the background. Before them stretched an ever-changing panorama of sloping lawns and fragrant blooms, of crimson and gray roofs and shining walls; and all the way like a gentle accompaniment to their song of joy. the silver gleam of the Seine. " We ' re there! " cried the girl, at length. The car swerved to the right and slackened speed, coming to a stand- still under a canopy of apple blossoms. " When am I to see you again? " the young man looked at the girl with a polite deference, but at the same time a quiet determination. " When the duke leaves the chateau, " she answered promptly. " Then I may never see you again. It is natural to suppose that every effort will be made to keep him until you return. But that needn ' t keep me from seeing you — here. " He waited for the effect of his suggestion. She was looking down the road, her charming face gravely meditative. " We are not friends, " she said finally, " we ' re merely chance acquaint- ances. " " We ' re going to be friends, aren ' t we? Don ' t you think that it was meant we should be — friends? " The duke was earnest. " Yes, I think that — perhaps — we were meant to be — friends. " The car shot forward into the Friedman grounds. " May I call tomorrow? " he asked, as she alighted. " Tomorrow at four, " she consented. " But come alone. " Thus they parted. The Countess of Chamberd had invited a number of her friends to wit- ness the meeting of the young duke and the American heiress. They were gathered on the broad portico of the chateau, which overlooked the valleys and fields of the Seine. The time for the meeting was already passed, and neither of the young people had appeared. The countess was forced to ac- knowledge herself outdone, and the tea party was dismissed without the pleasure of witnessing the meeting. The young duke, when he returned, was sauntering leisurely along the lawn near the big gate when he saw a little boy in knickerbockers ride up on a pony and stop at the gate. Going to the gate, he opened it. and was handed a letter. He looked at the address; it was for Mr. Ambrose Montfort. It read : 131 " Dear Mr. Montford : " The Friedmans leave tomorrow for Algiers. I must return to the chateau and pack my effects. The only blot is " dear noble Cris. " Can you not take him to Paris for the day and forever oblige your " Friend from Rouen. " " You look sick. " observed the boy. " I did feel sick for a moment, " the duke confessed. Then he wrote a reply : " My Dear Friend from Rouen: Count upon me to keep Cris out of your way. May I call on you in Algiers as a reward for the trouble? I am to ask for Miss Elizabeth Vaughan, am I not? 1 don ' t want to lose you again. " In an hour the boy was back again. The duke had not left the gate, as he was anxious for the answer. It was in this wise : " Welcome to Hotel St. George.— E. V. " " And now, " cried the Duke of Rexhall, " for a time table. " Mahomet AH, vender of baskets, rugs, embroideries, and silver work, and politically a broker of government secrets, sat cross-legged on his mat, humming to himself a little song of the morning. He was waiting for his first customer. A shaft of sunlight lay across the facade of the shop. The arrival of a customer brought a shadow between Mahomet and the gold. He looked up and saw a girl standing on the threshold. Her face was white and delicate as a lotus flower; the features bore the mark of Allah ' s finest workmanship. To the Oriental it was hardly a thing of flesh and blood, but rather the ethereal chrysallis of a spirit. As he gazed, Mahomet ' s soul took up the song of his lips — " gleam like the pearls that sprinkle a virgin ' s golden hair. " Mahomet saw the girl ' s head go up suddenly — the radiant sweep of crimson into her cheeks, the outgoing of her hand in greeting to another hand which clasped hers across the threshold of the shop. " I wanted to come on the next boat, " the Duke of Rexhall was explain- ing, " but I had a time in helping your friend the duke make peace with his aunt. " He peered into the shop, " I say, let ' s go in. It looks like an Arabian Nights Entertainment. " They entered the shop, the girl stepping across the rug-covered floor as though approaching a shrine. Her eyes were taking joyful inventory of Ma- homet ' s treasurers. The duke was staring with a great and unguarded joy at the girl. Mahomet had transferred his interest in the girl to something he saw through the rear of the shop on the street. A sudden change had come over the triental. . He stood erect, motionless, his somber eves staring before him 133 down the street. He was praying, passionately, desperately, against the evil which was to come upon him. He knew that he had sold his last government secret. And the price— that day or another, but surely, inevitably, some day — was death. " What is the price of the basket mademoiselle is looking at? " asked the duke in French. A peculiar spasm crossed Mahomet ' s face. H is eyes were fastened upon the door of his shop. " Death, Monsieur, in less than five minutes, " said the Arabian. The Duke of Rexhall followed Mahomet ' s gaze and rested upon a scene of Oriental confusion. The narrow street, deserted a moment before, now swarmed with white-shrouded figures. Dark faces were pressing against the latticed window. They were not friendly faces. Menace and hatred shone in them. " In that case, we ' d better go. " the duke suggested pleasantly, for the benefit of the girl. " Go! Only Allah could pass that human wall and live! " In Mahomet ' s eyes there was an expression which fascinated the Eng- lishman. He had seen that look on the faces of men dying in horrid agony. He leaned close to the Arabian ' s face. " Mademoiselle must be saved. Tell the another way out, " he whispered. " Follow me, " whispered back Mahomet, and stepped into the rear of the shop, thrusting back a curtain. The girl and the duke passed behind the curtain into a room. Mahomet, with a cry, thrust them through still another door, shut it behind them, barring and locking it with many devices iron and brass security. Before the two young people lay their way of escape— a quiet, sun- blessed garden. From behind the door they heard the sound of splintering wood, and saw the silken wall of the building go down before the invaders- saw Mahomet lurch forward to meet his unlovely fate. The duke put his arm about the girl and stepped with her through some heavy foilage, shutting off the ghastly sight of Mahomet ' s death. At the end of the garden was a gate. He unlatched it, and together they walked out upon a tiny hillside street up which a tiny French horse was pulling a prehistoric vehicle. The duke hailed the driver. " To the St. George, " he ordered, and climbed after Elizabeth to a springless, cushionless seat. " I suppose that is what might be called an Arabian Nights Entertain- ment. " said the girl. She was thinking of the broker of political secrets. " Even a garden party at Chamberd is jollier, " observed the duke. He was thinking of Elizabeth. 133 At the hotel Mrs. Friedman met them. She cast a discreet look at the young man who stood, hat in hand, beside the girl. Elizabeth looked square- ly at the duke and said: " The Duke of Rexhall, I present Mrs. Friedman. " The duke dared not look into the face of the girl. Did it hold scorn or forgiveness? " " Perhaps his grace will have tea with us, " suggested Elizabeth. He turned slowly and looked at her. She was smiling. " How long have you known? " he demanded. " From the dav you helped me run away, " she replied calmly. " As you may remember, there are some fifteen or twenty pictures of yourself gracing the chateau. I recognized you at once. " " Then you forgive me? " His tone was humble and eager. " I forgave it the first day, " s he answered. OTTO M. HAYS, ' 14. First Prize Story. Notes as to J. C. Craver. Born in Illinois as a farmer ' s son ; educated in the public schools and State University. While a student in the Uuniversity class of 1873 was with a student battalion, ordered into burning Chicago during the great fire of 1871, for guard duty ; was acting as adjutant and flag-bearer on that occasion. Taught his first school while in his 18th year, and many other terms in several different states in succeeding years. Failing health compelled his re- tirement from his Alma Mater before graduation, and in 187? sent him to Florida in rather critical condition ; located in the raw pine forest near where now stands Southern College ; the first Northerner to permanently settle in this portion of Hillsborough County. Established the first postofifice in Northwestern Hillsborough, called Bay St. Joseph, later Yellow Bluff, then Sutherland — in 1879. The mails were then carried on horseback, later by stage, and in 1888 by railroad service. Was instrumental in starting our College Library by book donations, and was elected an honorary member of the Philomathean Society on its or- ganization several years ago. Has been in the mercantile business here since April 1, 1888; never been married, but has helped educate and start in life several young people. 134 • -♦• ♦ ' ♦; % ♦ % ♦ ♦ ♦ UNCLE JIM— Our Postmaster. 135 4 • OUR COOKS 136 r The Cook. I was born in Pike County, Barnesville, Ga., Oct. 13, 1869. I first began work at Goggles Station with a very good family of South- ern white folks by the name of Mr. Erb Fambro. I lived with those people thirteen years. My first salary was 25 cents a month, board and clothes in- cluded. They took me to town one day and I saw some boys with white aprons and jackets on and I thought that it was the very thing I wanted to do, was to wait on tables in a hotel. In order to get a chance to learn the trade I went to a hotel and worked for nothing. My work consisted of cleaning yards, dressing fowls and general rough kitchen work. I thought that this would be the best trade for me. This was at Rockmart, Ga. After serving as waiter for five years in two or three hotels I began on my cooking career at Cedartown, Ga., in 1890. I served at the (Mrs.) M. A. Booze house two years as head cook, or chef. After leaving the Booze House I got married, September 21, 1891, to Miss Lila West, of Cedartown, Ga. After spending a few r days with my mother at Rockmart, I again got a position as chef at Mr. C. Philpott ' s and served him three years, in the fall and spring of 1894 my family and 1 moved to Istachatta, Fla., to work in a phosphate mine of Mr. A. D. Wright. My health had failed me, and that is why I stopped cooking. I soon regained my health and began cooking in a mining hotel at Is- tachatta for Mr. Richard W ' adley. This is where Mrs. McDonald got my rec- ommendation as cook. This amaiable lady, Airs. McDonald, had gotten out of my hearing for a great many years, and I did not see any more of her until the summer of 1906, when I met her at Sarasota. Fla., having gone to work on a truck farm for the Wm. Camp Phosphate Co. Mr. Camp was verv anxious to keep me, as he wrote to his foreman and told him to keep me, and also Mr. H. Stackhouse of Sarasota placed one hundred dollars in the bank to my credit for me to go to Brooksville, where I was then living, and move my family to Sarasota, but in the meanwhile I met with this amiable lady, Mrs. McDonald and had promised her that I would come to. Southern College, Sutherland, Fla. and cook. i:;; Alter recommending me to the President of the College, he wrote me a letter stating that he wanted a man that was temperate in all habits and that he must be sober. After reading the letter I told Mrs. McDonald that 1 would suit the pre sident ' s taste. This President was Dr. S. W. Walker, D. D. I arrived here Sept. 21, L906, on Sunday evening about 8 o ' clock. The next morning I found everything looking discouraging, and to me a poor be- ginning for a school. The President asked me to prepare breakfast, but I refused until I had seen Mrs. McDonald, as she came as matron of the dining room. My family did not join me until the first of October. When Dr. S. W. Walker saw my family he said that it was too small to do the kitchen work. He also said he would like for me to wear starched shirts every day and white aprons and jackets. I told him if he wanted me to go to the office and keep books for him I could wear those kind of clothes, but if I staid in the kitchen I could not do it. After working that year up to Thanksgiving the President, Dr. S. W. Walker, came to me and said, " Jim, when I first saw you 1 did not like you a bit. but the more f see of you the more I like you. " After getting acquainted with each other we got along all right. And now, as Dr. Hilburn says about the biscuits, " they are good and better, " so we say about the presi- dents, " they are good and better also. " After the election of a new President for the College, he came in the person of Dr. J. I ' . Hilburn. The new president asked me if I would cook for him also, and I made reply to him that 1 would if he bought a new range. This he consented to do. At the beginning of this new president ' s administration we had a little misunderstanding, but after we became better acquainted with each other we have been moving slowly along for the past five years, es- pecially under Mrs. Conrad as dining room matron. We have been getting along nicely under her reign as matron, because whatever she says must go, or she will get a broomstick and make it go. Now let us all as teachers, students and helpers, do all we can to make Southern College the best in the State. Your humble cook, JAMES PERDUE. 138 L39 Jokes.
