An Appreciation During the early years of this College, when the foundations for the traditions of the Insti- tution vere being laid, we had a man amongst us, who, though larger Institutions called him repeatedly to larger fields of activity and service, devoted many of the best years of his life to instilling into the minds and the hearts of the students here at the Florida State Col- lege for Women, a true ideal of life, and a right conception of what that life means. What could be more fitting than that the Class of 1911, who, for a number of years sat at this man ' s feet should bring a warm tribute of love to him ? Here, then, is to the Scholar, the Gentleman, the Teacher, and the Friend, SAMUEL MARION TUCKER. B Ji FLASTACOTVO 1911 Annual Board Sarah Davis, Iva D. Townsend, Editor-in-chief. Business Manager.

ASTACO VO 1911 History of the Senior Class In Incarnations Past and Present The soul of Caddobell Farr was once incorporated in the body of an early Christian martyr. Having a good start, this soul rapidly made its way in many shapes, in various places, stopping for a long while in Germany where it acquired a deep love for all Germany, and all things pertaining to Germany. Probably it was here also that the corporal sheath took a fair skin and light hair. Soon, however, the flesh and all its wearisome burdens (such as freck- les) will be annihilated, and Caddo- belle ' s soul, set free from every incum- berance, will be ready for eternal Peace and Forgetfulness. The tall athletic Essie, whose thin lips and determined chin do but bespeak the strength of the woman within, is the twentieth century successor to that an- cient Spartan ■Mother who sent her - sons to battle with the command to re- turn with their shields or upon them. As for Pearl, her present dry wit, her extreme reserve and taciturnity, are the results of a late incarnation in which It were well to note here how Estelle came by her perseverance, her un- shakable stick-to-it-tiveness. And thereby hangs a tale. With something of the spirit of the tragic Lady Macbeth who probably despised her lord for his vaccilation before the gorydeed. Estelle can be imagined in her sleep, assidu- ously practicing for English, getting the words slightly mixed, but still rub- bing her hands together in nervous agony, moaning, " Not all the erasers in the world can efface that one little mistake I made in Ethics exam. But come, come, come, what ' s done can- not be undone. To bed, to bed, to bed. " Some time ago there lived in England a very famous actress, -who had, besides her dramatic talent, a great inclina- tion to society. She had a good figure, a straight nose, and a fine mouth, and her name was called Mrs. Siddons. And were she living now, she would probably be seen at the horse show, J the automobile races, aeronautic flights, at the seashore, at her box in the theatre as well as on the stage itself. It is hard to sa3 whether or not she would play bridge. If not, it would be chiefly in this respect that her ambitious successor would be different — her successor being, of course, the original Eliza])eth Corbett of Jacksonville. These wise old Seniors, having been here four years, have tasted the sweets of knowledge, the sweets of ignorance, the sweets of the corner stone, and the sweets of love. But they have found the only sweetness that does not cloy is the personal sweetness of Bess Buchanan. They have known, also, the freshness of Chaucer, the keenness of Herr Hein- rich Heine, the admirable orientation of Dr. Conradi, as Avell as the quick 27 F T A S T A C O TV O 19 11 wittedness of Iva Townsend ' s numerous scinlillations. So taken together, Iva and Bess for an ideal combina- tion, and their friendship is but a reproduction of the devotion of Rosalind and Celia, who as Celia said, " Still have slept together, learned, played, eaten to- gether ; And whereso ' er we went like Juno ' s swans, still we coupled and inseparable. " Imagine Lucile Gregory as a damsel in the days of chivalry when those funny old Knights met and fought with each other to see whose girl was the nicest. Imagine Lucile up in the towers of an old medieval castle industriously polishing the shield of the gallant knight who wasn ' t in earnest, and you can see how a little of the soul of the lovely Elaine has become em- bodied in the Lucile we know to-day. The low, broad brow, the long, slimberous, dark eyes, the full oddly- shaped lips, in fact the complete orientalism of Olivia originated where long ago, the River Nile flowed lazily, where the tropical sun, with its sword of firera heat, blazed from the Eastern sky, and beneath, the teeming earth reeked with the dark, glistening foliage of Egypt — the aged, the mysterious. The soul and the personal beauty of Olivia re- call the luxurious majesty of Egypt ' s empress — Cleopatra. Since Lonny Landrum and Irene McSween are such late scene of Senior hostilities with General Ignorance, it is rather just what their soul ' s histories have been during the by- gone ages. Still it is easy to place Irene, with her flashing dark eyes, and equally flashing, white teeth, her strong right arm and her reserve fund of stored up heroism, in France during the year 14 when, indeed, she lived and died with so much credit to herself as Joan of Arc. Lonny, busy, bustling, active, useful, reproduces Florence Nightengale, the original Red Gross Nurse. Nora Hart is the original Chinese Mission- ary. Long ago she lisped her 65 way into the heart of many a benighted Mongolian, and for reward for good work done in the past, she is working among the heathen of the Florida State College for Women, where her task is harder, but is in slightly more congenial sur- roundings. Mrs. Julius Caesar was undoubtedly a bright woman — and, as a wife, as delightful 28 arrivals hard to on the deduce s W T V S T V C () AV O 19 11 and as devoted as she could be. She was so concerned and yet so tactful when her husband was in danger, that we run the risk when thinking of her, of neg- lecting her intellectual side. Yet she certainly ran to intel- lect — she spoke good Latin and went in for Greek and " astronomy and things of that kind. Why all this about Calpurnia, you ask? Because she is the direct ancestress of Sarah Davis. And now we come to Omerea HoUoway. Nobody less than the noble Portia — the gentle, the wise, the strong — could be remotely related to our Omerea. Except for the slightest possible tendency to gayety among the girls, Omerea has all of Portia ' s discriminative judgment, her naive characterization of men, her de- lightful humor, her dignified calmness, and her court room majesty. While from Omerea ' s lips come in perfect harmony Portia ' s immortal words : " The quality of mercy. " But this year sees assembled these choice spirits incarnated as members of the class of 1911. Olivia, Lucile, Estelle, Omerea, Essie and Pearl are what might be called charter members, being the six original members who have persevered unto the end. Our Sophomore year ' ' so many fell by the wayside ' ' but we were recruited by Sarah Davis, Elizabeth Corbett, Nora Hart, and Caddobelle Parr. By the time we were Juniors our presence was felt throughout the College. We were the liveliest class on the campus. We were commonly referred to as The Juniors, the Jewels, the Stars in the College Crown. It was in these gloriously happy days we overpowered the Elizabethan Drama and conciuered the field of Psychology. Although the delightful Dr. Tucker had taught here for many years and had become hardened to many inquisitive classes, this Junior class put him out of business entirely, and lacldng the courage to face the searching intelligence of our questions another year he withdrew to New York for a less strenuous position. Mr. J. C. Calhoun is another who, single-handed and alone, could not manage the impetious intellectuality of the class and so another Mr. Calhoun was called in for his assistance. Then one night at the end of the year the Senior class collected their dis- carded books, placed them in a coffin, and made a moaning funeral procession in the dim light cloud veiled moon. This challenge, made by the awful, black robed moaning Seniors was not to be ignored by the Juniors. Dressing our- selves in the handiest garments possible, and draping ourselves in sheets, we assembled by treacherous candle light on the first floor of Bryan Hall. From here we sallied into the perfect May night to exhume the Senior books. Not a Senior was in sight. So making our way in two parties, across the much littered campus we finally espied the little mound. Quickly delving into it, we found not the Senior books — a box of Huylers. This was an interruption quickly disposed of. Intending to proceed in our search for the books, we were literally attacked by a vicious onslaught of the Seniors, who, rushing out from behind a pile of bricks, attempted to unsheet us. While the scrap ensued, Sarah and Estelle tipped cautiously and with considerable hesitation through the rough, unfinished lower hall of the new administration building and around to the north end of the campus and into the vestibule of the old building. Here concealed in the foliage of many thick pot plants, Sarah felt in 29 ASTACOT 0 1911 the semi-darkness the rough edges of a box which contained, ! joy ! the Senior books. Giving the Junior yell they assembled their classmates who had suc- ceeded in routing the Seniors, and with Olivia leaping in the lead they gath- ered around the books, whipped out matches, set the pile on fire and danced joyously around the flames. The spot that marks the funeral pyre of those books shall be the garden spot for the Senior class flower, the coreopsis. At the opening of this last year the Seniors, joyous in caps and gowns, assembled in the unfinished halls of the new administration building. In the distracting, confused happiness of that morning we recognized Iva and Bess as fellow Seniors in all the dignity of the Senior robes. There were also two entirely new faces, and our delight was great on meeting Lonny Landrum and Irene McSween, who swelled our number to fourteen, making this the largest class which has yet graduated from this College. But already the tendency to reminiscenes comes over us. The past four years have much in common for the most of us, but there is an intangible sadness in reminiscences, and a very real sadness in the thought of the separations caused by graduating, but as that time is four busy months in the future, no word with a shadow shall be set dow n here. And thus the fourteen Seniors of 1911 close, welcoming the Juniors to the incomparable joys of Seniority. E. R. — ' 11. 30 T O D LJ 31 ¥ M F I A S T A C O AV O 19 11 Elise Partridge, A. B. 32 FLASTACOTV O 1911 Perhaps the most appropriate thing that could be written of a class con- taining only one member is a dramatic monologue, but here the muse fails me, and no more can be said. Suffice it to say, I am in a class all to myself. There is nothing more exclusive in the whole world than the class that is, at present, working for an M. A. degree in the Florida State College for " Women. Think of the advantages of being one to yourself. There is no question of class honors, and class officers, and there is absolutely no danger of any hard feeling arising on account of rivalry. Class meetings are a perfect joy. Noth- ing could be more peaceful and interesting than presiding over yourself. Think of the self control that results. Then, too, you are always sure of hearty co-operation and class support. And as for class spirit ! There is never any trouble in arousing this much talked of quality, for can you ever find anyone more in sympathy with your most beloved aspirations than yourself? As for not having classmates, you have the memory of the grand old class from which you came, and that in itself will keep you going. This is one case where an- cestral worship is not paganish at all. You are perfectly justifiable in spend- ing a great part of your time in adoring your mother class, and in knowing that her eyes are on you, and that you have her support even though she is not with you in body. So you see a P. G. ' s life is not a mere existance after all, but a sure-enough life. The class of 1910 is gone, But not forgot, you see ; The grand old class from which I came. And grew up a P. G. A handsome, howling, happy lot. That last year took their flight ; They sent me back this year, you know. To help keep up the fight. You do the same, dear colleagues all, Your College spirit show, Your Alma Mater needs you. And its wrong for you to go. If you ' ll come back another year, A P. G. you will be. I know you won ' t refuse this ]f you ' ll only look at me. 33 F L A S T A C O AV O 19 11 34 35 4hJt F T. A S T A C O V O 19 1 1 P ■ W .. JUNIORS Motto : — Fortites, Fidelites, Felicites.

Her father was a Merchant, And decided he would start her To find the comet, so he sought For someone who would Carter. A Wainwright in the neighborhood Promised that he Wood, If she would only Constant be, And also very good. So one ])right Mae morning, At the first peep of dawn, Her father came and Ro sa, And she began to Yon. She heard the Partridge whistle To his cunning little mate. So she knew ' twas time to get up Before it grew too late. She wished she had a Genie To attend her every want. And to put her in readiness To start out on her jaunt. For lunch she took an Olive And a juicy Redd Bodfish; These she purchased from a Stewart, And put them in a dish. She was so very happy That to herself she said, " lone the whole creation; And I ' m glad I am not dead. " And so she Sallie (d) forth to Winn Praise and name and fame, To make it Short, she n ' er came back. Well ! who was to blame ? 44 L. 1 T A S T A C O O 19 11 FRESHMAN CLASS 46 FLASTACOTTO 1911 :4 i: Freshmen 14 Motto : — Esse quam videre. Flower: — Cherokee Rose. Colors: — Green and White. Officers .

" Forthwith a new building was begun. Into it came the Freshman Class on September 26. A strong, lusty class, it is, with twenty-three members enrolled. These lively young people spend most of their time trying to persuade the dignified professors that they know as much as any of them, or in making Pie review the last History lesson. They have not yet succeeded, but wait! What wonders the years will unfold ! When they are Sophomores they will be wiser fools than any of those heretofore. When Juniors, they will manage the Seniors far better than it is now being done. And as Seniors? What words can express their superiority, not only over the present august group, but also over the Seniors of all the years? For eleven of them are to become splendid musicians, astonishing the world with their tune-playing, and singing it to sleep with their melodies. Another is to paint pictures. Two shine in Latin, three in Math., and they all know the three principles of Rhetoric! Then five are preparing to sew and cook for five handsome young men. Now, though it is needless to repeat what has already been said, to impress it upon your minds, I say again: this is the most original, brilliant, and altogether perfect class ever heard of — Yes? (To the tune of " The Little Midshipmate.) One day last Fall we all came here. And entered as the Freshman Class. We were young and green but full of sass With many a hope for the year. And the future of the Freshman Class. " We ' ll make a record here, " said we, " And study Math, and History, And make the Sophomores blush for shame. We girls of the Freshman Class Of the Florida Women ' s College. " We set to work with a right good will In English under Dr. Dodd. We frolic and work, but never shirk. And follow our Motto still — To be what we are and not to fake. Now maybe you think that we are green, But some fine day it will be seen What we have done for our College dear, We girls of the Freshman Class Of the Florida Woman ' s College. Then, here ' s to the Juniors, and here ' s to the Sophs. And here ' s to the Seniors so dear; But a toast tonight to the Freshman Class Of the Florida Woman ' s College. 48 49 i FLASTACO VrO 1911 Sub- Freshmen Motto: — " Don ' t be like the Sophomores !

The President has kindly given me permission to preside over this meeting, and ask you to suggest something. I can ' t think of anything suitable. A class prophecy is too long, and — not a one of you is hearing a word I say. Now, some of you suggest something, or I shall give the whole thing up and we won ' t be mentioned in the Annual! " All I could distinguish in the various voices that answered were such exclamations as: " I can ' t think of anything. " " I don ' t see what we can write " ? c. " Well girls, the literary Editor of the Annual spoke to me this morning. The latest moment that our class representative piece can be handed in is tomorrow at ten, later the Editor-in-chief said that the man to fix up the Annual sent them a most imperative order. " " They can ' t rush us so, " exclaimed Hazel hastily, " for the Business Manager told me we could have until the 15th.

" A chorus of " AYES " ensued. " Very well, you stand adjourned " — and they all rushed eagerly out, jab- bering like magpies, as if glad to have it all over, while I am left to go to my room, and study my head off to think of something to write for that old Annual, and for those foolish girls who won ' t take enough interest in it to even make a suggestion.

You know we have ' nt had anything exciting since the " Merry Widow " hats quieted down. Did you ever get stuck in a Pullman with your " Merry Widow " ? I did, and I had a most peculiar sensation when I crawled from under it, stood off, and gazed at it sticking be- tween those two walls. But you know, I, — why what is that coming up the walk? Did you ever see such scandelous thing in all your life? Dear me that girl has tied her dress on as tight as she can below her knees. Look, it ' s all she can do to take a step. Be- tween you, and me I believe that is the new " Hobble Skirt. " You know that is just like Helene — she is always trying to get ahead of other people. Now won ' t you — what on earth has happened to Elizabeth? She must _ have been hurt in a basket ball game, or run into by an auto, for she surely has her forehead tied up. Holy Smoke! don ' t let her hear me saying that, for, as I live, I believe its a piece of red ribbon. Guess that is the latest Jacksonville hair dress. It certainly is getting dark. Guess its al- most time for some Hash. Wonder who that girl is in the distance? Guess she has just re- turned from town. Bless me, if she hasn ' t a dunce cap on her head. No, it isn ' t either, it ' s a mule hat, — the kind you see mules wearing in the summer. And look, there is a long black feather tacked on the back. Svirely a mule hat isn ' t decorated that way — all I ever saw were just plain. Why, how stupid of me. It isn ' t a mule hat at all, it ' s the new " Ting-a-ling " .

B. degree from the Florida State College for Women, Lucile Stanley Mitchell ambitiously makes her way to Radcliffe College. She misses the charm of southern climes, but becomes so deeply interested in Ethnology, that she spends sev- eral years in close application to this sub- ject. When the Doctor ' s degree is conferred upon her, her thesis attracts the attention of a young professor at Harvard. A romance follows, that ends in marriage, and together the ambitious pair travel over the plains of America to study the Indian tribes. Nor is their research limited to America, for they visit the snow-fields of Alaska, the wilds of Siberia, and finally the forests and lake shores of Africa. Surely the world will profit from the account of their travels which may be found in Phantas Magoria magazine. The last issue of the magazine gives an account of Dr. and Mrs. Hogarth ' s (Hogarth being their name) discovery of the missing link. Behold the wonder ! I _) 13 r.

" yelled a newsboy on the streets of Omaha. I had just reached the city on my westward journey when this mes- sage reached my ears. What a natural call- ing for my friend ! for did I not recall the fun of years ago, when Lilla enlivened our busy study periods with occasional imper- sonations? From the President to the mail carrier, she could " take them off " in such a manner that every girl in the suite gave encore after encore. Of course I went to the Genoese Opera House. Could that tall queenly figure be the same Lilla? I doubted no longer when a familiar saying of a for- mer Professor, " Oh, well, I do not think so, " came to my ears. Her successful career could not be doubted when I saw the size and personnel of the audience, and heard the entire performance. My gifted friend had developed into a gen- uine artist, but the memoirs of her school days came out in occasional old familiar sayings. 55 FLASTACOTVO 1911 RUTH HOLMES OTWELL. Where shall we find her in the coming years? On a busy street of Philadelphia in the spacious offices of the Otwell Publishing Company, we see her in the private study, for her genius could be satisfied only in the editorial work. She has passed a long ap- prent iceship as assistant editor of The Phantas Magoria, a magazine published monthly ; but its popularity became so great that Miss Otwell ventured to assume com- plete control of the publication. It is de- voted to the advancement of science, and the editor herself does considerable research work in this line. Her latest investigations have resulted in some remarkable discoveries upon " How to Keep Protoplasmic Cells Lim- pid. " It is said this article alone increased the number of the magazine subscriptions by eighty thousand. " Bo ti ., a-vv ' . t.iVa.

One of our class has remembered this advice and has become an accomplished primary teacher in Portland, of the far west. It is said that her equal can not be found. In teaching, in discipline, in community life, and in character-building she is the peer of Oregon. Take a peep into her class-room. See the busy little people at their desks ! Occasional mischievous " freaks " are in the class, and only a competent person like Agnes Yent can know just what to do. She applies the same principles taught in 1911, but twenty years have greatly changed the methods she once learned. Besides her practical experience, Agnes has contributed to the world ' s knowledge of the profession by writing several books on pedagogical subjects. 57 1 T.

In front of it, adorned with graceful ehns, is a lawn which borders upon the sidewalk of a residence street in Montgomery, Alabama. Upon knocking at the door who should greet the comers but our modest, charming class- mate of 1911, Mamie Sims, now Mrs. R , and mistress of this beautiful home. The daintily furnished rooms give evidence of that exquisite skill and taste, which ]Mamie was wont to show in Home Economics. The carefully selected library shows that her literary tastes have not been neglected ; nor can one, who looks into her smiling face doubt that her place as a model homekeeper is one of supreme happiness. 58 FLASTACO VO 1 9 1 1 IRMA NICHOLSON WILLIAMS. At thirty. To become a skillful librarian is the su- preme desire of Irma Williams, and after several years of training in Boston she takes charge of the Brockden Brown Library at Denver, Colorado. Yon can see her any day standing behind her desk, always ready to give assistance to the most indifferent visitor, or the most eager student among her throngs of readers. At sixty. Irma ' s character grows more beautiful with age. At sixty she no longer serves the reading public in the busy library, but in her retired life she still Avields a far-reaching in- fluence as the National President of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Her girlish fondness for cats is still manifest, and on a quiet afternoon, you can see her seated in a comfprtable chair with the sunlight on her white hair, with several favorite pets about her. 59 F Ju A S T A. C O IV O 19 11 ESTELLE JONES. Aliout the year 1931 summer visitors among the Adirondack mountains are at- tracted to a popular boarding house built high upon the mountain slope. It overlooks a lovely valley, dotted with small farm houses, patches of woodland and numerous lakes. Upon the broad verandas you can see groups of jolly summer boarders and hear the sound of joke and laughter nearly all the day. Who comes out to ring the dinner bell? None other than the estimable proprietor, — our old friend, Estelle Jones. Altho her house has its retinue of servants, it is a " pet notion " of hers to call the guests to dinner Avith her own ringing of the bell. The years have changed her but little ; only a few ad- ditional pounds of avoirdupois, and an oc- casional streak of silver in her brown hair. She is the life of " Cedar Ledge " , her pop- ular resort. -.. NJl l- .60 F L V S T A C O TV O 19 11 ANGELINE YENT. Pull twenty years have passed since Angel- ine wielded Indian Clubs in the gymnasium on the slope of College Hill. She is now the national organizer of the American Athletic Association for Women, and delivers ad- dresses on physical training, that hold the attention of vast audiences. She demon- strates so thoroughly how old women may become young, how awkward women become graceful, and how plain women become beau- tiful, that she has a host of followers wher- ever she goes. In the various cities of this country she organizes out-door clubs for young women, and some of her devotees hold the championship of the nation in Swimming Contests, Golf, Field Hockey, Basket Ball and Tennis. She always traces the begin- ning of her inspiration to her physical train- ing in 1911 at the Florida State College for Women. » - o 61 -i i£)i F L A S T A CJ O W O 19 11 Junior Normal Class Motto : — Trust not to appearances.

There are only five who have gained admittance to our class. But by the request of the Faculty and a number of the students, we have permitted the Sub-Freshman class to join us in some of our studies, and we have extended this privilege to the Senior Kindergarten class in Nature Study, and the Junior Kindergarten in Psychology. Each member of this class is noted for various attainments. Herculean tasts in Latin, Geometry, and Psychology have been performed by us with per- fect ease. The class as a whole, is recognized all over the campus by faculty and students to be authority on information concerning all insects, trees, ferns, flowers, and birds, which are characteristic of Leon County. We are calmly waiting for 1912, when we shall have the honor of an L. I. degree thrusts upon us, and go out in the State to display our knowledge to the youth of Florida.

They had worked so faithfully in the laboratory all the year, that Mr. Barber had promised to chaperon them on this trip without requiring notes, and specimens in the day ' s program. Dr. Conradi (hearing of their remarkable records and of their quiet behavior thru so many trying weeks), had granted them permission to be gone until sundown. So the " Hall " resounded with merry voices, calling out to one another. " Say, Jerry, have we plenty of lunch for both dinner and supper, and four or five sandwiches and five pickles apiece between meals ? ' ' Now, " Jerry " was Ander ' s(s)on, a tall good looking fellow about seven- teen years of age ; but being a double cousin to one of the girls, and distantly related to Mr. Barber, had obtained permission to go " With am " . Accord- ingly he came up to the " Hall. " " Why don ' t those conveyances come on? The ' Waggeners ' seem to think we can afl ' ord to lose two hours of our precious holiday " , said Nelle Jones. " Yes, " said Erin, " and they don ' t even consider the extra half -hour it takes to climb that ' Auld ridge ' of scrub oak land this side of Lake Bradford. But yonder come the ' Waggeners ' ! Come on, girls. " " Listen to the grand ' Duke ' s ' order, " called out Nelle with arched brows and a suppressed giggle, as she climbed into the first wagon. Connie Hancock got in last and waved at the envious girls looking after them as the teams moved off. An hour ' s jolly ride brought them to the beau- tiful lake. " Say, Kids, " said Constance, " Mr. Barber said we needn ' t even look at a bird unless we wanted to, but since you don ' t have to ' write it up ' , do look yonder at that tall ' Crane ' in the water. " One of the three Marys informed the crowd that Miss Nellie Bassett had kindly offered the use of her bungalow for the day, and had also loaned them her row-boat. You may know the boat was soon brought out. " Don ' t rush so, girls, " said Connie, " Get in from the boathouse steps or you will ' Myer ' down in that mud. " Recent rains had made the shore muddy, but in their eagerness, before Mr. Barber knew what was taking place, several girls were stuck in the mud. " Beulah ' Myers ' down deepest of all because of her extra avoirdupois, " said Johnsie. 65 FLASTACOTVO 1911 " Now that ' s a shame, " cried Alga, " to think Roxana and half a dozen others got off in the boat and we are stuck here. " " Never mind, " said Annie, " Jerry has to pull you out. " " Glory! " replied Alga, " It ' s an ill wind that blows nobody good. " All at once a scream came in from the boat. " Help! help! " yelled Edna, " One of the ' Steele ' bands that bound the boat gave way, and we shall drown! " " Sit still, " said Mary Turner, " Maybe the ' Smith ' can mend it. " Great Heavens! " she gasped, — for in a paroxysm of fear, Roxana had jumped over- board. Mr. Barber had to practice the " high dive " in great haste, and finally dragged the girl in to shore. The girls rowed slowly in, and with the assist ance of Jerry, carried the fainting Roxana into the bungalow. ' ' Go ring the ' Fones ' and call the doctor ! ' ' cried a chorus of voices. ' ' Put her on the bed and ' Tuck (h)er ' in! ' Turn (li)er ' over and beat her on the back! " After a vigorous pounding Roxana slowly opened her eyes. " Is the ' Bishop ' here? " she inquired faintly, " Ask him to pray that I may recover in time to have my share of the lunch. ' ' " Well, this is the worst ever, " said the " Bishop " who had stepped for- ward with bowed head. The girls proceeded to comb our Roxana ' s dripping locks, and arrange them in a long " Piatt " down her back. By this time Mary Tucker and Steele Edmunds had spread the lunch. " Mary L, you get some water from the lake, " said Beulah, and the healthy Mary touched the shore cautiously ' Lest (h)er ' fate should be equal to that of her friend. Such a dinner as they had! Just as they sat down, " Thom ' s(s)on, " who lived near by, bro ght in a plate of fried fish. " Mother seen you drive by " , said he, " and seein ' the ' Bishop ' in the gang sent this fish over for you to have a bite of our latest ketch. " Where- upon the " Bishop " returned thanks with unusual fervor. " ' All(i)good ' and well! " echoed Ruth. Promptly at sundown the " Waggeners " drove up to the college " Hall " , and the Sophomore Class hurried into supper as if they had not had a morsel of food all day. ' ' This has been an eventful day ' ' , said Mr. Barber as he bade the last one good-night. And as they went home, Jerry heard him breathe a deep sigh of relief. 66 C§J(- hB FLASTACOT O 1911 Freshman Normal Class Motto : — ' ' Hitch Your Wagon to a Star. ' ' Colors : — Navy Blue and White.

Their jokes are quite a caution. For at one time some one said. When speaking of a sick man, He was " ill, " then " worse, " then " dead. Some are tall, others short. Some are lean and lank; We " have ' em " here all sizes, But not a single crank. On history dates they ' re splendid, Never making a mistake; But on agriculture, ignorant. Scarcely knowing hoe from rake. Some take music, some take art. And some take history; But for all their open candor, Some remain a mystery. " What are properties of verbs? " Some one answered " Conjugation! " Said another, " They ' re comparison! ' What a conglomeration. Once this class called a meeting. Officers to elect, And after much debating. Wise ones did select. " A volcano is a wonder, " Said a bright girl, looking down, " To define it — I can just say — ' Tis a great hole in the ground. " Then to choose their colors, (That custom good and old) They all spoke up at once. For lavender and gold. From all the world of flowers. Now, which one should they choose? The modest little pansy. With royal purple hues. And then to choose a motto, With inspiration strong. From a famous English poet — " Live pure, speak true, right wrong. ' ' Said the teacher, " Down on Panama They ' re digging a canal; Can you tell me now who owns it? " " Yes, sir, Teddy, " said an honest little girl. We ' re devoted to our Dean, For we think he ' s very fine; But when he ' s disappointed He has an awful time. When his blackboards get erased. Then our Dean gets up his " ire, " And if you watch his face. You ' ll see his eyes flash fire. This class a noble purpose has; It is that of teaching; But upon examination time, Their looks are quite beseeching. But the teachers ' class is growing. Full two dozen on their roll. But in June each goes away. Bearing lavender and gold. 70 ¥ ?. .-«.i t. 71 i L A S T A C ( AV O 19 1 A Striking Contrast The day was warm and sunny in the month of October, and the sun ' s rays were slanting through a window over the ruffled brown head of a young man working laboriously on an old typewriter. This little picture was in the office of a young and flourishing Southern College, and the man of the scene was a busy personage indeed. One could easily sympathize with him as he pounded away, with his brow wrinkled and frowns gathering over the intelligent face. And there ! without warning the spindle-legged table fell to the floor under the weight of the machine. The poor fellow jumped up from his chair and began pacing the floor, and as he surveyed the piles of bills and papers lying on the table, every one of which had to be type-written and filed with his signature, he exclaimed, " Yes, it ' s this way always. There is the President, ' must have these letters to-day. They are very important and should leave on the next mail. ' I must have a good machine, a substantial table and a few other conveniences, or I ' ll quit my job ! But no, I don ' t believe they could get a better man anywhere — I suppose I ' ll have to stay, " he said in a resigned voice as he fumbled among the books and papers on his desk to find a pen. ' ' The work will all have to be finished with pen and ink, I guess. ' ' Luckily the pen was there, and in his eagerness caught up that article, and snatched an old mis-used ink bottle from a pigeon-hole in his desk. But poor fellow, he was doomed to further exasperation. I told you so ! There goes the pen flying out of his clumsy fingers, and rolls slowly across the floor, under a rusty iron safe in the corner of the room. At this critical period it would be well to give some idea of that office, in which this business-like fellow labored under so many difficulties. It ' s really wonderful how that office could hold together ! Occasional drops of rain fell through the ceiling and blurred the important papers lying on the desk. And that desk itself was badly in need of repair. It ' s very easy to see why his pen rolled along the floor, because the slant was perceptible even to the most near- sighted person. In one corner of the room were the rusty yellow letter-files, and two chairs of doubtful durability stood sedately in the back of the room. Along the front was the cashier ' s window, where the girl ' s came to pay their fees, and make repeated demands for brooms and dust pans. The shelf of the window was carved and illustrated with queer drawings and etchings of grace- ful lady heads and baldheaded professors, and more in evidence than anything else, those time-worn carved initials. But " pardon this digression, " for we had almost forgotten our young man. After scrambling for his lost pen and knocking his head on a shelf, he emerged from this place very red in the face. Ye Gods, this very day when the gong for four o ' clock sounds I shall resign, for how can any man transact business under such trying conditions? And yet, " he suddenly cried out, " how could this place make any progress without me ? How can I, who have been Secretary of the House of Representa- tives of the State of Florida, Secretary of the Florida Educational Association, Secretary of the Board of Control, Secretary of the Florida State College for Women, and even Secretary of a by-gone baseball team in my boyhood days, how can I, I say, leave this weak school to struggle in obscurity without my assistance? " His emotions became more complex, and tears of pride rolled slowly down his cheeks. 72 FLASTACO VO 1911 It was uncomfortably warm for the next two weeks, and almost every day the same monotony prevailed. According to his nature the man was never idle, and now he was making out some bills and counting piles of money. " Cash is pretty low, guess these bills will bring it in tho ' . These country people are wonderfully prompt about returning the money, anyhow. They are not so bad off, at all. " He stopped suddenly and listened for a noise he had heard. Yes, there was some one knocking ! " Why, what a pleasure this is, come right in and take a seat, " and he bustled about the room, bringing a chair and pulling down the shades to make it restful for the feminine vistor ' s eyes. ' ' Just stand up a moment and I Tl dust that chair for you. Ma ' am. ' ' Slowly his face grew red, as he hunted frantically for the duster. " Oh, sir, do not worry about the dust, every room has its share of that; but I wanted to say " — horrors, the poor chair slowly subsided under its healthy weight, and sadly but firmly she was seated on the floor. " J--, oh, I ' m so sorry, " and in consternation he rushed up to give aid. But the lady waived him off disdainfully, and extricating herself from the chair, marched out of the room without a word, head erect and face flaming. Just then the telephone chimed in with an inquisitive note, and the man snatched up the receiver. " Hello, hello ! yes! You say your name is Abraham Sawyer! Yes, 1 un- derstand, — well, what do you want? I know your name by this time I hope. " Want your daughter to come home on the next train? Well, give your rea- sons, please, — reasons, I say! Complains of hard work? (it ' s precious little studying that girl does). Well, she shall come home on the very next train theUj good-bye, " and he hung up the receiver with a clang, muttering to him- self, " Anything to get rid of his talk ! " " Oh, Sam, you Sam, come here ! " and he looked out of the window to see the miscreant colored man. No answer. " Well, guess it ' s up to me to find him, it ' s always my lot to hunt every inch of this campus for that nigger! " It was a whole hour before our friend found Sam, singing " Mah honey chile, " scrub- bing away on the floor of the Domestic Science kitchen. " Yassah, yassah, what you wish, Massa? git a kerrige? JMah flo ' s not clean yit, jes ' lemme finish dis here end. " " There, will you obey orders, Sam? Now go, and go in a hurry, too. " Sam went — rubbing his head in a dazed way and muttering brokenly to himself: " I declali, Massa he do be in one hurry dis mawnin ' . " " Lawd, I ' se a comin ' , comin ' , comin ' naow. All ye his Saints, I ' se a comin ' , comin ' , naow. " And the echoes of the old negro hymn came to the ears of the man busy at his work in the office, after he had picked up the remains of the liroken chair and stowed them carefully away in a dark closet in the hall. " There ' ll come a time, if I know who I am, when I ' ll have no such chasing to do. We need a call system, and it ' s up to me to push it through, " he said, and just as he was about to close the office door for the night, he came face to face with a tall farmer. With one hand the man respectfully lifted his big straw hat, while in the other he had a pound of butter. " Good evenin ' , I ' m sho ' glad ter see you lookin ' so well. Reckon ' tware that last batch of butter I sold you. Haw, haw! Now say, didn ' t them girls in your dinin ' room like it tho ' ? " Our friend smiled and replied, ' ' Yes, indeed, they liked it so well that it disappeared like hot cakes ! I could smell Butter- scotch cooking when I walked past the dormitory last night. 73 FLASTACOWO 1911 " But this here butter I ' ve got to-day is jes Jim-dandy. I tell you she ' s equal to the honey bee in May, haw, haw, haw!! " and the farmer went away satisfied, after receiving an order for thirty pounds of butter. Such are the complete duties of a Secretary and Business Manager of a new College. Fortunately, our friend was a young man of unusual energy and fine business habits, so that he was destined to bring order out of chaos before many years could pass. Five years have passed. In place of that shabby building with its shabbier office, there stands an imposing brick structure of three stories and a basement. On the second floor, reached by a flight of marble stairs, is a handsome suite of rooms. In these rooms are the office quarters, and over this, the Hon. J. G. holds unlimited sway. But is this strong commanding bachelor in the white vest our same young man of by-gone years? Yes, it is true. He has assumed years as well as flesh, yet they become him very well. He looks satisfied. Yes, for why should he not! Take a peep into his imposing suite of rooms. There is the main room with its beautiful walls, official seals in frames, and a pon- derous business-like desks with mission chairs to match. There is a new type- writer on a table conveniently near the desk, also, and the wood floor shines forth its menace to any but a careful pedestrian. A complex series of grated windows, before which the girls appear in orderly files to pay their bills, gazes imposingly at any person who enters. At one window is a clerk to attend to the laundry fees, at another is one who receives payment for board, and still at another a clerk keeps record of all absentees. Walled cabinets and book-cases and private drawers are carefully arranged against the walls of this spacious office. On one desk is a series of buttons to which are attached electric bells which connect the office with every part of the Campus. No more chasing the colored workmen over the extensive grounds. On the contrary, when button one is touched the grinning face of Sam appears. Button two brings Tom and others, until the complacent office manager is able to dispatch business with wonderful rapidity. But there is next to the main room a well furnished private office with a Brussels carpet and beautiful furniture and pictures. The Hon. J. G. sits in his desk chair now and gazes with satisfaction on his surroundings. And looking out of the large bay window, he sees in the blue sky an eagle, circling slowly southward. He compares his own life to that of the great bird. Yes, he started life in small weak circles, and those circles kept growing stronger and wider, ever bearing him toward success — he grows drowsy and finally he sleeps — not from misfortune and anger, but from pure joy of achievement.

The Kindergartens of Los An- geles had all closed and every one was preparing for a happy vacation. The morning of June 20th had been set for my wedding. Naturally it was an eventful day for me. At ten o ' clock we started on our honeymoon in one of Bright Brothers newly modeled aeroplanes. We traveled very swiftly for we reached St. Louis in time for dinner. As we en- tered the dining room of one of the hotels, the waiter led us to a table at which a woman was seated. Her face looked strangly familiar; but who was it? She looked at me and I looked at her. Then she said, " Lillian Page, where did you come from? " It was Marcella McLean and no other. Marcella looked very much as she did in those days at the Florida State College for Women. Few wrinkles marred her face and only a few grey hairs could be seen on her temples. We talked fast. She told me that she was now holding a position as Kindergarten instructor of a big training school in St. Louis — something she had never dreamed of in College days. Soon we left for Detroit. We were tired when we reached there, but not too tired to go to the theatre. Now whom do you think we saw on the stage? Mary Wyatt Fries ! She had become a great actress and was stirring this season in the plays of high tragedy. She was playing Juliet to Forbes Robertson ' s Romeo. I could not believe this was the Mary who had always loved soli- tude and longed to live by the water. Such queer things do happen ! The next place we went was New York. We stopped at the Waldorf Astoria and to my great surprise, I found a swell 80 M F I A S T A (1 O V O 19 11 banquet being given by my old classmate Bly Pickett. Bly had married a rich broker on Wall Street and was one of the leaders of society. She had changed much in the last ten years. She had lost her youthful slenderness and had gained the corpulency of middle age. We talked for some time together. She told me that if I would visit Columbia University I would find our old friend Sara. I went to Columbia and sure enough, there was Sara Verdery stud.ying for her Ph. D. She was as full of life as ever. She told me she had not yet reached the height of her ambition, but would in about two weeks, when she would marrj a noted profes- sional football player. It was July the 10th, before we reached London. The first evening there we spent quietly reading the papers and planning the remainder of our trip. I picked up a London Times and glanced through its columns in a listless manner. Suddenly I read these words: " Madam Jesimine Tomlinson, the world ' s greatest singer, will appear to-night. The greatest thing of the season is in store for you. " Jessamine Tomlinson ! Where had I heard that name? I de- cided right then that I would hear the Prima Donna. That night when she gave her first number I immediately recognized our old Florida friend Jes- sie Tomlinson. What a T y wonder she had become ! " From London we went to various places in Eu- rope and then to Asia. I had several letters from Arabel Hopkins and knew that I would find her a missionary in Pekin. I 81 F L A S T A C O V O 19 11 did not let her know I was coming, for I wanted to see if she was teaching Kindergarten scientifically, and if she had made practical all those psycholog- ical principles Miss Wheeler had drilled into our heads. I found her in a Kindergarten with forty little Chinese children. She was getting along splen- didly and was as happy as could be. Arabel had changed considerably. She had discarded her frills, furbelows and rats, and was dressed plainly and simply with her hair done in a small knot on her head. I could not believe this was Arabel, who five years ago had achieved great feats as an automobilist and had won the cup at the races on Daytona Beach, Florida. This was our last stop. I had seen every member of our class of 1911. I was bewildered by the strange fortunes to which we had all attained. Many of us had entered entirely different fields of work from those we had intended when we left our Alma Mater. Memories of " Good Morning, Merry Sunshine, " came floating over me. But, I was filled with delight to knoAv that every one of that dear old class of 1911 thought in 1921 that she was the happiest girl in the world.

A maid, came riding toward a college gate, She wore a pompadour that reached the skies, A ding-bat hat that covered up her eyes ; And from the college came a man so thin And took her by the curls and led her in, Where sat a company with faces grave, In council, how to make the maid behave ; A dreary look did on their faces light, — As dreary as the average bedroom light, Where for a " stunt " we vainly try to dress. And really wish to look our very best. — Their eyes were dim, but somewhere I ' ve been told That through a maid they all can look a hole. Then methought I heard a hollow sound. The like of which has never yet been found Bringing dim destruction in its tone. Freezing the poor maiden to the bone. Causing every flippant thought to fly, Every foolish dream to quickly die. They who heard it slowly safely sighed, Vainly seeking all their fears to hide. Bowed their heads and meekly made reply, Knowing well the power that was nigh. Then the maiden raised her timid eye. Filled with wonder, fear, and mad surprise. And she saw this awful sound had meant That she stood before the President. In a hollow voice he slowly spoke, Just as if each moment he would choke : — " Wrinkled colleagues, grim and thin, Here ' s a victim in your path ; Take this maid and lead her in, Stufi her brains with mouldy matter — Clammy Classics waning fast, Lonesome Latin, gruesome Grreek, Pile them on until the last, ' Till her cranium fain would squeak. 85 FLASTACOTTO 1911 Give her German, give her French, History and Physics, too. Make this poor benighted wench Wise as Socrates and you. I am old, but let me rule ! Bring me maids from far and near ! Every one in this whole school I hold precious, I hold dear. Fundamental truths I teach. Logic and Psychology, Ethics also I can reach. And all Greek Anthology. Take her noAv, and quickly go ! Just to finish up her doom. Hurry up ! and don ' t be slow! Take her to the dining room ! ! " The patient man Avho Avas so far from stout. Now seized the maidens curls and led her out. The room grew still, as still as are the dead, Each man assembled slowly dropped his head. Years rolled by, but patiently they wait To seize the next poor maiden at the gate. E.

Above stairs all was quiet. The bride had donned her traveling gown, adjusted her hat and veil, and was now making her last adieux to her parents. The suit cases were safely stored in the motor car, and the groom stood at the head of the stairs watching for their chance to slip by. At a whispered call, the bride came to his side, and locking arms, they ran swiftly down the stairs. .Just as they were escaping by the porch steps the front door slammed. This aroused the waiting company, and with one accord they rushed out. The bridal couple had reached their car, but not soon enough to fully escape the deluge of rice and shoes which descended upon them. Just one lone shoe found a resting place, and that was on the top of the machine in a pile of rice. A minute more and the car was gone amid peals of laughter and shouts of good wishes, with the one old shoe keeping watch over all. While the car is rapidly carrying the happy couple to the depot our attention is attracted e ' sewhere. Fate had so ordained it that on this particular night Fraternity at College was initiating a most ungovernable " goat. " In consequence the initiation was proceed- ing along very strenuous lines. All of the facilities on the campus had been put to use, and now the irrepressible bunch were seeking out other means of initiating the " goat. " By hook or crook he slipped out of their clutches as they were passing through a crowded street. As each man thought the other was playing guard, his escape was not realized until he was commanded to do some stunts. Trouble began then for sure. Each man made of himself a searching party, and all scattered in different directions, promising to meet again on the same corner, in fifteen minutes. A vain search was carried on for the allotted time, then twenty disappointed co ' lege boys gathered again, each with his tale of woe. The twenty young brains finally decided that the depot was about the last place to search, so the whole body started off at a trot in that direction. They covered the ten intervening blocks in as many minutes, but with each step their even tempers failed them the more, so, by the time they reached the vicinity of the depot, they were in no amiable frame of mind. Fate played another trick that night when it ordained that the groom and the " goat " should be dressed ali ' ke in grey suit, tie and hat. The motor-car reached the depot, and two persons very much engrossed in one another jumped out and pushed their way through the crowded waiting room to the platform. A schedule announced the north-bound express to be " on time. " When they began to gather their belongings about them the groom discovered that he had left his overcoat in the motor-car. — Now what was to be done? He could not go north without a coat — the motor-car was probably gone — and, the train was due in five minutes! A short consultation ensued, and they decided he should try to find the motor-car. After kissing his bride, and assuring her that he would return in time, he disappeared into the hurrying throng. Two minutes passed three four — and still no groom! Five minutes and the train was due. Far out in the night a whistle blew — a searchlight blazed down on the tracks and the platform with its waiting throng. The girl-bride grew desperate, tears started to her eyes and a cry of disappointment escaped her lips. The great light bore down upon her the throbbing engine rushed passed her, slowed down, and the long line of coaches came to a standstill. The passengers 97 FLASTACO WO 1911 alighted, and a new crowd went in to fill their places. The ' ast straggling one had just thrown his suit case to the porter, when the bride espied, away down the platform, a man in grey running at full speed, calling to him to hurry, she signaled the porter to collect her baggage just as the conductor called out " All aboard! " She threw her arms around the neck of the man, kissed him, and with a glad cry boarded the train, holding fast to his arm. The whistle blew — the engine snorted, and the coaches rolled out of the depot. The girl and the man entered the car, and the porter directed them to their section. All the while the man would have spoken, but each time he began the bride would cut him short with some little exclamation of love, or expression of her anxiety. Suitcases and umbrellas were stored away, and the couple settled themselves in the seat. The man removed his hat, the girl drew closer to him turning up her face for a kiss As she did so an expression of horror overspread her features and a startled cry was heard. She drew back in the corner of the seat and began to weep. Then did the man have time to explain. He was trying to elude someone when she had pulled him aboard the train — she would not allow him to explain. Now was it too late to help her? He really would like to be of some assistance if he could. What time was this? Why, yes, he would inquire. It was the north-bound " local, " and would stop in a few minutes at L — , the next station to X — . Yes, he thought it highly possible that he could telephone back to X — and tell her husband where she was. Tears began to flow less freely, and it was not many minutes before the young bride was smiling and making herseli very entertaining to the " unknown man. " L — was announced. The train stopped, and the porter emerged carrying the bag- gage, followed by an expectant young man and woman. Once again she stood on a sta- tion platform surrounded by her baggage, and once again she advised the young man in grey to leave her and see what he could do, begging him to see what he could do. When the groom ran out of the depot at X — , and anxiously searched the line of motor-cars for his own, he was approached from behind with an unexpected bound. Then fun began for twenty young men who were not in very forgiving frames of mind. Over in a field, across from the railroad yards there was a barn, and before that barn hung a hay-derrick. Twenty young men knew of that spot, and they made all haste in that direction, dragging behind them an infuriated young man in grey. The farmer who owned this barn was an alert man who a ' ways kept a shotgun near his hands, so they deemed it expedient to go about their work quietly. With a noose loosely tied under the arms of the supposed " goat " they pulled him up to the door of the hay loft, peltered him with sand and left him to repent of his former deeds. Farmer B — had been in his chicken yard when all this excitement was going on. Hearing the disturbance, he went to investigate the cause. When he saw a man about to enter his hay-loft, he drew up his gun, and in most commanding tones told him to get down, or be shot. The supposed " goat " informed him of his plight, begging him to help him out. The old man took compassion on him, let him down, and directed him to the depot. He had not gone very far when he met twenty young men who were very much taken aback. They were just about to pounce upon him again when one of them espied a pin on the man ' s vest. Further investigation proved it to be a frat pin, this man was none other than a brother of the twenty who had done him up so. In a few words, which could not be misunderstood, the groom expressed his opinion of them. When he explained his position to them, they could not do enough to help him. They went back to the depot, and, on making inquiries, found that a gii ' l answering the description of the bride, together with a young man in grey had boarded a local train which was late, and which had passed at the time set for the express. The express had a hot-box outside the city a few miles, and was delayed a half hour. It was due in fifteen minutes. 98 FLASTACO VO 1911 A train of thought, something like this, ran through the groom ' s mind. The first stop of the local train was at L — . She would surely get off there. It was ten miles off. There was a hard road between X — and L — . A fast motor-car could reach L — in just about ten minutes. He could beat the express catch his bride and then He was just about to voice his thoughts, when a racing car appeared far down the road. Motioning the boys to follow, they ran into the middle of the road — stopped the car — jumped in, and, without any explanation, told the chaffeur to drive like the to L — , and he did! The faithful little engine acted bravely. In seven minutes the lights of L — began to twinkle like stars away out in the dark. A whistle blew. It was the north-bound express. Now it was to be a race! The depot was in sight. The fast- approaching train was bearing down upon them. Just one mile more — and the whir of the wheels. A half mile, and the searchlight was full on them. Three blocks away and the engine was a length behind them. The station reached, and the sturdy little racer and the engine came in side by side. Crowds scattered to make way for the apparently mad set of men who were racing an express train. The groom, by this time, was standing on the running board of the car ready to jump as soon as he reached the little bride he could now distinguish half way down the platform. The brakes scraped, a man in grey broke through the crowd followed by twenty college boys. Then — while one man in grey held fast but gently in his arms his dear little bride, another man in grey was held fast, but not so gently, in the arms of twenty astounded, but triumphant young men. By this time an interested crowd of spectators had gathered. When the conductor called " All aboard " a girl-brid e again entered the car holding fast to the arm of a young man in grey, this time making sure he was the right one. While outside a curious crowd, together with an irrepressible bunch of boys, who held fast to another man in grey, cheered the plucky bride and groom until the train was swallowed up in the dark of the night.

Pearl makes cookies — millions or more, Ruth boils plum puddings to add to the store. Alma loves soup stock, so easy to make. And much prefers it to mushrooms and steak. There are others in the class who have great talent. And always do things for the lad who is gallant. Their successes will come in the future near. As the time for their dinners is nearly here. On Saturday, each, a lecture we must take. And, oh ! how much our poor heads ache. These notes to us are quite a big stack. Because they are filled with " bone-black.

The aim of our Association is to make the Y. AV. C A. the center of the college life, the very axis around which everA thing else revolves. We want to bring every girl in school to put the Y. W. C. A. ahead of all other activities, because the Y. W. C. A. stands for everything that goes for the betterment of mind, body and soul. Primarily, it seeks to develop in its girls the highest type of character — a character strong physically, socially, mentally and spiritu- ally. It seeks to send the girls out for Christ, with lives full and overflowing, to bring the blessings they have had, to those less fortunate. When college life is past, the association is anxious that the girls meet life bravely, and that, as a stream flows quietly, b it leaves a trail of freshness behind, their lives may scatter gladness and help along their courses. _s!The Y. W. C. A. is thoroughly democratic. It recognizes the image of the Creator in everyone. Here College and Normal, Thalian and Minerva, Frat and Non-Frat, Rich and Poor can meet on an ecjual foot ing in a common cause. We have a fine Advisory Board in the Faculty, which shows their attitude to the Y. W. C. A. The Bible and Alission Study Classes open for most of the girls, a new and necessary line of development. Indirectly these classes tend to the national aim — ' ' The evangalization of the world in this generation. ' ' Our missionary, dear little Miss Fitch, whom we help to support, is a vital between our Association and foreign missions. The Y. W. C. A. is a store house, representative of the Great Father, to which we want the whole sisterhood of students to come for new strength, and for the straightening out of their troubles. Here also they can pass on what they have to some one else. Finally, the Y. W. C. A. does not want one student to leave this College without realizing that the business of the King is the most important, and that the highest service to Grod is service to man. " I am come that ye might have life, and have it more abundant. " 115 1 " I A S T A C O W O 19 11 Pan-Hellenic ! Officers. •. V Lucile Gregory, A. K. ; ' . . . . .President Nannie Keese, A. A. i .

Most of the girls were lounging around the rotunda, and it was very evident from their tired faces and peevish man- ners, that getting up in the wee, wee hours of the morning and " cramming " did not quite agree with them. Some few of the girls were making a brave effort to get in a good humor, by dancing, but all were wishing for something to vary the monotony. Suddenly everyone was startled by a shrill voice crying, " A big show at the gym. tonight. High vaudeville. Eight o ' clock sharp. Everybody come. " Everything was excitement. Who was getting up the show? Who let them have it in the gym ? Would it be any good t At any rate you could go and find out. At eight o ' clock promptly, the gym. was packed. Everyone was eager for the show to begin. The appearance of a funny little man with a black beard, a very red nose, overalls and a swallow tail coat, brought a roar from the audience. When he proceeded, with an air of great importance, to strut over to the piano and whisper a few words to Nellie Legg, the audience decided tltat he must be the stage manager He then ascended the steps, and when he started the opening address, everyone recognized Mary Pries. With wild gesticulations, sonorous tones, and broken English, he made known the 136 F L A S T V C O AV O 19 11 " Casey Jones " the famous ] Iiss Con- wonderful talent and world wide reputation of his company (as is the custom of stage managers). He then introduced Miss Blanche Pattishall, in her remarkable impersona- tions of Mrs. Skipper (that unique personage who haunts the campus and waylays the girls in all the highways and by- ways of the Florida State College, begging for darn- ing and mending, selling " p i n d e r s " and fried chicken, and incidentally relating a pathetic tale that would melt a brass monkey). Mrs. Skipper then made her appearance and delivered her usual speech, which was re- eeived with roars of laughter and loud applause by the audience. The little man then announced " Casey Jones, " by stance Bishop, and the talented ballet chorus. Imme- diately a clown, followed by a bunch of pretty girls, in dazzling dresses, issued forth. The clown rendered " Casey Jones " , and the girls came in on the chorus. The ballets proved themselves past masters in the art of high dancing. In the meantime a funny old hay- seed, attired in blue paja- mas and a red bandanna, made his appearance, fol - lowed ])y his son — a stout youth in short trousers. They were thoroughly en- joying the dancing, sing- ing, and " Pa " was having the time of his life when " Ma " appeared with her umbrella very much in evidence. She was exceed- ingly shocked at such an unusual scene. The " hen- pecked husband act " took place and the audience recognized Bessie Eddy in " Pa, " Laura Kemp as ' ' Buddy ' ' , and Katie Barrs as " Ma. " In the mean- time, " Casey Jones " had been given, and it literally brought down the house — it was encored again and again. " Ma " " Buddy " 137 ' iy FLASTACOTV O 1911 The ballet girls were : — Sara Verdery, who wore a stunning red paper costume — she made herself famous ; Ruby Hall, who was gowned in blue and white, she can now rest on her laurels as a ballet girl; Beryl Harrison looked even prettier than usual in an extremely attractive blue dress ; Margaret Merchant wore pink — her clogging was one of the hits of the night ; Jessie Tomlinson, whose jigging was un- surpassed and truly original, Avore pink and looked like the real thing; Lucile Mitchell was beautiful in a costume of red, and was foremost both in the singing and dancing; Irene Gard- ner was petite and dainty as usual, in a blue and white costume. The next thing on the programme was Miss Jessie Tomlinson in her celebrated clog dance. This petite and coy little actress was one of the hits of the evening. The next and one of the most amusing feat- ures was Signora Fall staf (Opal Purnell), who sang " Call Me Up Some Rainy After- noon, " and was as- sisted by the ballet chorus. This selection received enthusiastic response. The stage manager then introduced the celebrated Prima Donna, Miss Geradine Anderson. (The Prima Donna was a tall stunning girl in black with a large picture hat.) She sang the amusing little ditty en- titled, " Guess what I ' ve Got for You. " Miss Constance Bishop, Miss Beryl Harrison and the ballet chorus, rendered that " Mesmerising Men- delssohn Tune. " " Ma, " " Pa, " " Buddy " and Mrs. Skipper again appeared on the scene. This was followed by several jokes, told by the stage manager, who also gave a very grotesque and amusing imitation of a monkey. After that the audience was undecided whether he was indeed a stage manager or a sim- plified form of Chimpanzee. After this performance the " Heavenly Twins " were announced, who proved to be Lucile Mitchell and Irene Gardner. They made a most interesting pair of little girls, and were truly graceful and pretty. The grand finale was a two-step in which every one was invited to par- ticipate, no one had to be urged. M.

So I cautiously come nearer, And my glance becoming clearer, I percieve the stacks of Magazines, O ' er which these virgins pine. The walls are lined with classic lore ; For spread in vast array around, The " hobble " fashion plates abound. They indeed are works of art. Which the Greeks would fain outdo, Reproduced by magic chart in the garments of the few. But, oh, college girls, be wise ! Flips and fashions pass away, Classic lore is here to stay. Togas may old timey be. But they fit more gracefully. Gladys Short, ' 13. 153 FLASTACOTTO 1911 Cottillion Club Bess Buchanan. I. Townsend. Elizabeth Corbett E. Partridge. Mary Hall. S. Verdery.

C. there ' s a Hollow-way, A lane that turns to Math, She struggles thru the livelong day Not to incur the teacher ' s wrath A Senior new so bonny Is she whom we call " Lonny, " In Economics she does very well, But in Bible History does all excel. Latin is said to be Sarah ' s hobby. But I ' m thinking that she may. From what is heard in the lobby, Have another one some day. There is one — a priceless Pearl, In cooking she is known to shine, She can make a biscuit in a whirl, Besides soups and candies all so well. Among these seniors so smart. There is one without a Hart, Yet strange to tell of the knowledge, She ' s acquiring at this college. A tall girl named Estelle, Finds in Browning her ideal, German too, she speaks so well. It almost makes one reel. Essie is a girl so strong, Who ' s aim is to be an athlete. She practices the whole day Long, In order not to get beat. 164 FLASTACOTTO 1911 In Voice, Elizabeth takes the lead, Of business ability, she feels no need, She wears a band around her head, — Any old colors, blue, green or red. Another girl is very Moody, And very stylish too. Dressing has become a duty, Especially when they ' re new. In Lucile, frankness reigns supreme. We feel for those who cross her, Since studying Ethics, " Goods " her theme, And there ' s naught else can boss her. Our new senior Irene, In all our hearts has won a place. No one doubts she ' s very keen. And will get her Dip with grace. We have a pianist in Bess, She knows her Mendelssohn by heart. We think tho she won ' t confess. Some day, she ' 11 use his wedding march. To Iva give your ad We certainly are glad. That business is her fad. And that she can work her dad. Another maid lives Farr away, She ' s small and very gay, She giggles thru the live-long day, But also attends Y. W. C. A. 165 1 L A S T A C O AV O 19 11 Lives of Great Men All Remind Us Pie " Williams — Born in Wales. Came to Tallahassee at a verdant age. Teaches History from the Fall of Man to the Rise of Woman ' s Reputation — doubted by H. W. Wilson Co., IMinneapolis, Minn. Ambition — To live until 1912 when his Penn. Mutual Policy expires. He hopes to achieve the latter unless brought to his untimely end by the present Senior Economics class known as C. E. Boyd — Born some centuries ago in Rome. Began to speak Greek and Latin fluently at three. Won several prizes in Greek spelling matches. Greatest ambition — Not to deprive any students of the great privileges of doing all the classical work possible. Reputation — For making digressions. Never flunked a scholar. " Sallie " — Educated in Wofi ord College, roomed with Dr. Tucker. Repu- tation — For keeping out of the library all the books possible. Greatest desire — To give the future generation benefit of his " new ideas " on education. A. W. Calhoun — Born in Penn ' s Woods a few years ago, has been teaching History in " unknown tongues " ever since. Reputation — Arguing. Greatest happiness found in writing the names of those late to breakfast. Possesses the great ambition to be transferred to a " warmed climate, " which his stu- dents sincerely hope may be realized. Edward Conradi — Born a " Hoosier, " educated in Clark University, where he learned " The Great Fundamental Problems of Life. " Some years, he got " his bearings " in the Florida State College for Women where he is at present " orienting " himself. He would " heartily endorse " the student government movement and is especially interested in solving the problem of a " hygienic laundry. " He " would like to say right here that laundry prices must go up in order to meet current expenses. " Shall we pray? ABSURDITIES. Mr. McNeal — What is the connecting link between the animal and vege- table kingdoms? Jess P. — Hash. Miss Abernethy (to Hist of Art Student) — How do you make a Maltese Cross? Nora (brightly) — Step on his tail. Mary D (holding up a new Belmont pennant and surveying it critically) — Isn ' t it pretty, say Hazel, where is it from? Mr. Williams — What became of the Swine when the evil spirits were com- manded to enter into them? Pearl L. — They became deviled ham. 166 FLASTACOT 0 1911 JUNIOR SYLLOGISMS.

For Eva to get to breakfast on time. To use light after ten without being duly rcAvarded. To ring the dressing bell loud enough for Estelle to hear it. To think in East Hall without being overheard. To get laundry done for nothing. To cut classes without your health being questioned. To eat a meal without hearing an announcement. For all the Seniors to wear their caps and gowns at the same time. To learn how to pronounce Chaucer. To teach Mr. Barber that tennis is not baseball. To get through with one of Dr. Boyd ' s examinations in less than half a WANT COLUMN.

By Miss Abernethy — " some one to take her ofi worthily in the mock faculty meeting. ' ' By Gladys Crawford — two extra yards of hair ribbon. By Elizabeth C. — an invitation out to dinner. My Miss Lewis — " someone to write something cute for the Domestic Art Department of the Annual. " By Olivia — more time. By Mr. J. C. Calhoun — someone to lead Chapel whenever its his turn. By Mr. Dodd — more college spirit. By TT — a knife for the use of the Senior Economies class. By Mr. A. W. Calhoun — a graphophone to make announcements in the dining room. 167 M MW F L A S T A C O AV O 19 11 OUR CLUB. Here is a great Classical Club, Though their meetings are not in a tub, In Latin and Greek They do fairly reek, While other students they snub. The German Club has a table ! I wish to add to ni} ' fable, They chatter so much In horrid Dutch, To eat fast they are unable. You have heard of I-ate-a-pie? It would make you laugh till you cry. To see the grand airs. In all their affairs, To be very proper they try. Minerva ' s would buy a piano; So decided it must be a go. What fine Math scholars. With just seven dollars. To still persist in it so. Thalian a senior censor desires. She to something greater aspires. Are they quite truly, So very unruly. That this office so much requires? BREVITY IS THE SOUL OF WIT. The following answers were received to the general question : Tell what you know of the casts in the studio. 1. Venus De Melio All of a woman except her arms. 2. Apollo Has curly hair with its standing higher on top. 3. Diana Has her hair in a ball behind, and is sister to Apollo. 4. Hermes Has a little hand on his shoulder. 5. Guano De Medicin Has just a hand and no shoulder. 6. The Unknown Woman Has her hair drawn tight from the front. 7. The Winged Victory A woman with wings. 168 Bth F L A S T V C O Y O 19 11 Florida ' s Flowers Sociable Plant. Grows better in close vicinity with other plants. Variety : Aspira Aesthetica.

Just rattle off an eighth for four, And a fourth, eight if he wants more, For a half page give me fifteen. Then he looks downright mean. My notebook then, is my next resource, " When I see he ' s proft ' against moral force, I let his eyes with a sidewise glance, See a rivals ad, as if by chance. " Gimme a full page — whatsyuhprice ?
