The work of getting up an annual has been a pleasure, for it is work done in a good cause: but. nevertheless, there have been many difficulties attendant upon it. We will not burden your minds with an enumeration of these difficulties—suffice it to say that the work is done and we are glad. We have no apologies: we have done our best. May the annual meet with the approval of the students in particular and of the public in general. Somewhere in the writings of Woodrow Wilson there is a sentence remarking on the fact that it is so easy for a man on going out into the- world into business to drift away from the ideals of his early manhood and forget the standards he set for himself in the days when lie was full of youthful energy and ambition. May this annual l:e an obstacle in the way of anyone’s forgetting the ideals of his college life that are good. In future years, mav the pictures stamped in it and the words printed on its pages serve to bring back to the members of our student body recollections of tin- institution in which they once lived, studied, sang—yes. and prayed together. May the sentiments expressed herein tend always to inspire loyalty and devotion in the heart of every I’urmanite to his college; and may they help us to “Keep faith's vow to serve but thee. Our own dear Alma mater.” If these things may conic to pass partially as a result of our modest efforts, we are satisfied. We would acknowledge the assistance rendered to us by Prof. It. X. Daniel. His untiring efforts in assisting us with manuscripts and proofs have been simply invaluable. Among the students. Mr. A. L. Pickens has made himself indispensable bv his literary work; while our art editor. Mr. K. It. Stall, and his assistant. Mr. Edwin Boyd, who have furnished all our cartoons, have devoted their time unsparingly to the work. C. S. Sullivan, .In., Editor-in-chief. C. O.

Wlio li;ti 1 describe those glorious hours of calm which I arc interspersed amid the autumnal winds? Those days that hold that great sweet stillness when the fleecy clouds hang motionless and gentle within the infinite dome of heaven as though they and ail tin-world beneath them were lost in an overpowering, pensive revervi And old Nature having lived a life of beauty, contemplates the death of winter with holy ealm. and bringing forth her gold and silver, bestows them with lavish eharit in the form of gleaming asters and flashing golden rod. Somehow all the world seems to he dreaming of the newer life that shall come with the resurrection of spring; and even if it rains. Nature's very tear-drops seem brightly gleaming, with the fulness of hope. It was during sueh a month as this that you found that the little orschulr path, which you had been following as it wound here and there amid the Piedmont regions of the Mountains of Knowledge, had converged with others of its kind at the foot of a great mountain. Here you found the genial mountain guide, Kdwin. waiting with a corps of efficient helpers to conduct you and your party up the mountainside. How distant and dim seemed the summit! You were told it would take four years for the climb! Nevertheless, you entered the little lattice-fronted store at the foot of the mountain, equipped yourself with alpine stall’ and guide-hooks, and manfully set out upon the journey. The members of the band were enthusiastic, and elected from their own number a large auburn-haired Titan as leader. lint, alas! Trouble lay ahead. The way soon divided into sundry trails of various grades of difficulty. In one of these trails you stumped your toes so often on two kinds of stones. Itabcn and Srin. that mayhap you sadly soliloquized, that “to have’’ and “to be” were the most important things, not only in life, but also in German grammar. Hut most difficult of all was the mathematical trail; and despite the kindness of the guide who led there, many a mental skeleton was left to bleach amid its triangular pebbles, and its hyperbolic, parabolic, and diabolic windings. In addition to the above every member was required t cover enough road to enable him to be present at searching examinations which the guides gave at stated times and places during the climb. Some accomplished this bv steady climbing; some by spurts, and some by the use of imported jacks and ponies. But woe betidetin- luckless wight who loitered behind, or failed to cover the proper amount of the road! Besides all this there was a band in the mountain who having preceded vours had reached the Sophomoric Heights, and had grown dizzy from their elevation. It was their insane delight to hurl down upon you various heavy burdens which they had found the year before, and had borne up the mountain until they reached the aforesaid elevation. Strange to say. these burdens are picked up every year by some new band, borne a little way up the mountain, and then hurled hack upon those below. who in turn pick them tip. hear them a short distance, and again hurl tlu-m down on some new band. One of these burdens was a peculiarly irritating epithet which designated the person at whom it was hurled as a much hated rodent that used to infest our fathers' corn-cribs in great numbers. Two other hands, whose members possessed adorable faces and musical voices, were climbing the mountain by neighboring trails, each under the leadership of a guide like yours. Sometimes for a short hut happy period, your trail lay contiguous to that of one or the other of these hands, yet even here was trouble; and if you will hut pause to do so. you may he. even now. able to recall the name of some promising climber, who, gazing on. and dreaming of those other hands, neglected his guidebook, failed to trace his course, and as a consequence went over some fatal precipice. Thus you climbed. There were one, two. three pauses on vaeational ledges to rest then you began the last climb and the summit came into view at last! But lo! far In-fore you lie other and even loftier heights of wisdom, for the quest of knowledge is one that has no end. Now the road diverges into many paths, one of which you must tread, your school the world, your books the lives of those about you. Bidding the kind guides and your associates farewell, you turn vour face to the future. Other Septembers shall adorn the earth with gold and silver flowers and turn loose dozens of fleecy clouds within the intense depths of its blue,— yes. its blue, its infinite depths of azure, reminding one of that sapphirinc glory whose beauty at Sinai bespoke to Moses and Aaron the presence of the Internal: other bands shall climb upward from the Vorschulc roads, but for you the climb is over. Yet there lingers in your heart just a gentle touch of regret. A. L. Pickkxs.Senior Class OFFICERS C. S. Sullivan .... O. C. SCARBOROUGH . A. A. Foremax J. A. Easley .... W. R. I.oadholt . ( . ().

After sundry studies carried on in the Perea High School, the Central High School of Greenville, and the Mauldin High School, he entered Furman University. He made good, and is assistant in the Department of Chemistry. According to his own account, he intends to “instruct unsophisticated bucolic individuals in the elementary rudiments of learning.” We add that by a dexterous philological transmogrification this Hrohdingnaginn assertion may be rendered in the vernacular by— “teaching in a country school.” Member Sigma Section Phllosopliian Literary Society; Member Class Football Team '12-'13: Member Relay Team ‘12-‘13: Winner of Mile Race '12- 13; Manager Track Team 13- H; Member Furman Council.KfCJKNK m:.u roHD chain C.VM 1 010:1.1.A.

A low. obscure cloud hung over the landscape and rendered it half dark within doors, so that CHILDRESS, the science teacher in the Greenville High School, was compelled to make use of the electric lights, as he went about the preparation of some experiments for his next day’s chemistry class. Beside him stood a swarthy, dark-eyed Hindu, Gunjur-Dow. who watched him curiously, evidently making a mental comparison between the elementary chemistry of the Greenville High School and the highly developed alchemistry of the Orient, whence he, shortly before, had come in company with the missionary, JACKSON. It so happened that while JACKSON and Gunjur Dow were visiting CHILDRESS, FUEI) MITCHELL dropped in; and thus MITCHELL. CHILDRESS, and Gunjur-Dow were all brought together. MITCHELL, realizing the difficulties of a three-cornered conversation, had few comments to make, and gradually left Gunjur-Dow and CHILDRESS to do all the talking. He himself swayed to and fro in a rocker and allowed his spirit to roam hither and thither in the realm ol dreams. Into a bowl of copper-filings CHILDRESS now poured some nitric acid and from the bottom rose an orange-brownish cloud swaying and struggling upwards, not because it desired to rise, but because some unseen, sub-incumbent force within it compelled it to make room for its own antagonistic parts. Thus it swayed and struggled to the top of the vessel, where it rolled heavily to the table-top, which it hugged as closely as possible as it crept panther-like in thick billowy folds to the edge, where its floor-seeking streamers were caught and waved in the air like the half-visible tentacles of the ghost of a devil-fish. In the swarthy Hindu and in CHI I. DR ESS, MITCHELL, whose mind was ever on the alert for metaphors and similes, saw Mephistopheles and Faustns busy over some hell-born mixture whose very smoke was loath to rise upward from the place of birth. Thus, smiling at his own conceit, he turned his gaze to a beautiful crystal globe which the Hindu had placed on the mantel. His mind again strayed away and lie f-U t ruminating about his one-time classmates. He thought of the honest, imperturbable, old CRAIN, and of the genial EASLEY, both of whom were representatives of their county in the legislative assembly and practicing law between times; he thought of FURMAN, who slept whole days away down on Main street, under a sign which read. “A. G. FURMAN and Father, Real Estate.” There, too. was wizened, dried-up little old SULLIVAN, who ran a hardware store a few blocks away, while the benignly smiling WALKER had grown to be one of the permanent fixtures of the postoffice. It was easy to keep tab on these, forthey ail lived in Greenville; and he was also well informed of the good deeds of his brother ministers, IRBY, IIAMMONI), and MILFORI), for he frequently met them at various kinds of Baptist conventions. But where were the remaining ones? lien- his eye fell on the Hindu’s crystal, and he wondered if there were any virtue in it; might it not be able to bring him the desired information of his missing classmates? We will not vouch lor what follows: suffice it to say that whether crystal-gazing holds any truth within it or not, the Oriental custom of gazing fixedly at a small bright object in order to produce sleep is not absolutely without its effect, and perhaps this was what happened to MITCHELL, for suddenly a scene seemed to lie forming in the crystal. It t ok the form of an oil-mill situated in the midst of a small country town. Peering through the office window lie beheld his erstwhile room-mate, AIKEN. MITCHELL started forward with his characteristic greeting, “How art thou, AIKEN?" but just then a mighty blast was blown in the engine-room near bv, and the whole seine was enveloped in steam. MITCHELL sank back into his chair and waited. The steam slowly shaped itself into the vague, indistinct form of a wooden store building. MITCHELL peered closely and thought he read on t-hc front this sign: “J. T. ANDERSON Co., Groceries, Underwear. Builders' Material, and Real Estate;’’ but before he could decipher the rest, the steam cloud lifted and showed a band of civil engineers at work in the Florida Everglades. They drew nearer and nearer, and our watcher was delighted to recognize the faces of ROY CHAPPELL and CHESTER SKINNER; but just then a greenish haze filled the globe and the whole scene vanished. .MITCHELL had now discovered that any classmate of whom he thought appeared in the crystal. So he mentally summoned CARTER, SAPOCH, and OWINGS, one after the other and found each one differently engaged in country town banks. ZEIGI.ER was in a retail house in Orangeburg, TRULUCK was a speculator in raw tobacco; in the lower part of the State SCARBOROUGH was following the law at a great distance. MILLER, too. had followed his legal ambitions far enough to he able to swing out a weatherbeaten sign reading "J. B. MILLER, Justice of the Peace.” SIMPSON was found in the legislative halls by the Conga rec representing Laurens County, and, having married, was making himself quite a “rep” as an anti-suffragist. It required some mental effort on the part of MITCHELL to get LOAD HOLT into the glass, but he finally appeared, making use of his old-time monkey actions by vending on the street corners a quack mixture known as Dr. A. A. Foreman’s Famous Fat-producing Food for Felons, Fevers, and Feebleness. The vision of LOADHOLT brought to mind LOADHOLT’S erstwhile old lady, GARDNER, who, on beingsummoned into the crystal, was found to be an instructor in l,'reneh and German in one of the high schools in Eastern Carolina. Hut lo! the scene changes, the ball quivers in every part, blue-coated policemen dart into view, all rushing into a building and down a passage toward a door whence weird shrieks are emanating. They break down the door and arc met bv the suave smile of the dentist, STEKDLY. who is inducing a victim to render a weird solo bv chucking bis mouth full of amalgam fillings. Once more the view changes: the crystal growing more agitated than ever, toppling about and threatening to roll from the mantel. A thick cloud of dust is all that can be seen; but—mv stars! listen! Thump! Whack! Hiff! "Whoa!" Whack! "Blast ye! Whoa, I sav!" Thump! Whack! "Whoa. 1 tell ver!" Whack! Slowly the dust-cloud dies down, first a long pair of ears comes into view, then the body and legs of a mule, and finally the face of farmer Ii()I,I.E . and beyond him. in tile adjoining highway, stands an unkempt knight of the road who smiles genially as HOTKEY wipes the sweat from his eyes and gurgles. "Hello, Dick SKIXXKR. you Mountin' ol' hobo! You lack to nve scairt my mcwel to death! Come right up to the house an’ I'll have in' wife cook ycr some beans and corn-pone! Come right on !- right on !” The farmer dropped the traces, mounted the mule, and starlet! homeward; hut the stubborn creature, fearful of the tramp, shied to one side and his load was thrown to the ground, or rather, as it appeared, against one side of the erystal. The crystal quivered, rolled, and fell from the mantel, bursting into a thousand pieces on the hearth. MITCHKI.l, sprang to his feet and rubbed his eves. Gunjur-Dow was bending over the fragments of his treasure. lie suppressed his worried look with a smile, re marking. "Well, the sahib, my friend Jackson, approveth not of crystal-gazing, any-r!” A.

Hoi.mes Ai.i.kn: Jerry is a famous business man and recites daily before the I-atin professor in chicken incubation and poultry feeding. He is also a detective anil a great busybody. J. It. Ai.i.kn: J. It. is known by all for his sympathetic nature and strength of character. He is popular with us all. J. L. Raogoit: Jimmy Lee is forward not alone in basketball, hut also in love. He is likewise the possessor of a splendid voice. 11aki'kk Bai.i.kntink: Harpy proudly claims “My Town” (Anderson, South Carolina) as his home. He is a student, musician, ladies’ man, and an embryonic lawyer. V. I.. Bates: Doe is a dainty little creature of some 210 pounds, and one of our heav- iest sports. He is much interested in Soph. Math. J. A. Brown: Squat is a jovial and vivacious, yet eat n and dignified, little gentleman, with both athletic and oratorical inclinations. J. S. Brown: This gentleman of Napoleonic stuturc, as he moves about between the legs of his taller companions, disseminates the radiance of a sunshiny smile. Cl. W. Cami-bki.i.: George’s only fault is his fondness for Convers(ation). Studious, .sincere, loyal, and true, he is a favorite with us all. E. R. Crow: Eugene Ityan is indeed a freak, because of the fact that he is a red-headed Crow. In intellectual affairs, however, he is a leader. L. I). Dodson: After much research Leon has arrived at his fundamental theorem of Cal- ologv, namely, “There is nothing like a girl.” He is also a good student. F. F. Drake: This member of our menagerie should he called a “duckling.” from point of size. He is one of our best football plovers, however, and we are proud of him. V. L. Diu mmond: Though he is red of hair, we dure say that Red means no harm by it. He is happiest in a baseball uniform, with a good chew of “apple sun-cured” between his masticators. L. II. Fi.ovd: Herbert, as his behavior would indicate, hails from the seaport town of Gallivant's Ferry, and is a jolly good fellow, who especially enjoys the jokes of the Latin department. L. NT. Foy: Though modest and retiring, Roy is one of our hardest workers. He is very studious, talks little, and thinks much.B. I’. Ga.mhiiki.i.: Barmore, though of a “lean and hungry look.’’ lias mucli knowledge of an oratorical and forensical nature. His especial gift is that for “cutting other fellows out. E. I.. Givtxs: Though a Tennessean by birth. Earl now hangs his hat at Fountain Inn. I'nassuming and unpretentious is hr, hut industrious anti pleasant. E. II. Hkxiikksox: Midget is the sunbeam of our class. He is a veritable human mole- culc, with high ralenre Imth for his class-work and the friendship of his associates. H. M. Hodokxs: Iienry Milton is truly ublaxc with poetic Fire and love for learning. His ancestral abode is in Traveler’s Best. II. 1). I.ockmax: '1'hough styled Itunt by the class, Hallie is a runt merely in body, and not in mind. Spartanburg County is responsible for whatever faults he may have. •I. F. I.i po: l.upo is nicknamed Beanseed. but he is not so green after all. With grace and ease he legs his way over the campus and through its various classes. W. I . Maktix: Paul, like the great apostle, is a writer of letters. Paul’s “First letter to —is especially noteworthy, and, like the letters of the apostle, treats of the law of love. M. B. Momikv: In Mobley we have a splendid specimen of the Sharku Malhu . He is another of our quiet. deep-thinking students. W. L.

Pow: Though his name might suggest it. Joe is far from being as dead as a church pew. He answers roll-call in society regularly with a love quotation, and we fear that he is in love. I). E. Sam : Erie comes to us as the special representative and envoy plenipotentiary of Smoaks. He is a good athlete and a hard worker. T. B. Siii:i.or: Shelor is just T. B. any way one takes him. He is active and industrious in his studies, and has splendid ability for the mastication of his “weed.” C. F. Sims: Because of his ruddy hair the quotation. “Shake not thy gory locks at me,” may well Ik- applied to Sims. Basketball and preaching are his specialties. F. T. Simpson: Felix was born at Starr under good stars, we lwlieve. for he has starred here, not only in boxing matches, but also in his class-work. F.. B. St.m i.: Though from the city of Greenville, Karl has little signs of greenness about him. His modest, quiet conduct has gained him many friends.II. Tinsii.y: Brenkc is a splendid type of the clean athlete. In haschall and football he ranks high ami his record in class-work is indeed an enviable one. ('. I. Tkit.cck: C laude, inasutueli as lie l« oks after our laundry and is a tine fellow, is indispensable to us. He is a diligent student, and popular with all. II. B.

Anywhere You May Be. 1) k a it Fki.i.ows : I N'C'K your departure from these scenes of war. we have greatly missed your assistance, for often our patience has been sorely tried by these bunches of gaily Freshmen. But alas! It bchooveth us not to talk of Freshmen, for we ourselves were once in that lowly state. Can you remember what trying times those were? Recall how we felt when we were told to matriculate and we didn’t know what matriculation meant. Is it possible that you can ever forget that cold night when by a rude sopho-morie hand you were snatched from the arms of Morpheus, elevated to the dome of your palatial dwelling, where you gently embraced the kalsomine, and then were let down in a most ungentlemanly way to the unsympathetic boards below? But these correcting tendencies of the Sophomores, combined with the brotherly kindness of the Juniors and Seniors, and the patience of our professors elevated our minds from the Valley of Ignorance to the summit of Fool’s Hill. On September 17, 11)13, the Class of ’ 1 ( again sought the campus. Our number was augmented by the addition of a few men from other institutions, but the gap in our ranks caused by your absence was noticeable. W e missed everyone of you. especially in that class rush against the rats. Oh. yes. fellows, that class rush is a new thing on you. W’e didn’t have that when we were Freshmen, and so we will tell you all about it. Well, the Trustees said we could have football if we would cut out hazing, in order to eliminate that superfluous amount of energy stored up in us from a vacation of three months, which might have found application upon any kind of practical resistance, the college authorities arranged for a sort of physical rough-and-tumble battle between us Sophomores ami the Freshmen. In this the rats attached their pennant to a time-honored oak of the campus and formed a band around it in order to protect their colors. We collected in a body and when the signal was given we rushed upon those scared boys, who made an honest effort to protect the rag. A hearty and spirited contest followed. 'Flic conflict had lasted only thirty seconds when one of our brave number scaled the heights over heaps of senfHers and pulled the colors from their place, and the class rush was over. Fellows, we would like to tell you all about our work in the classrooms, in the literary societies, and on the athletic field, but we can’t. Suffice it to sav we have had our share of honors. Wishing you every success possible, wo still remain. Yours in memory.

In our imaginations we were at home again. Oh! what a feeling came over us when a misehievous-lookin upper class-man smiled knowingly at us as In passed our room. Night was fast approaching and there was no lock on the door. Soon, however, we were much comforted to learn that a petition of the students of last year, asking for inter-collegiate football, had been granted by the Trustees on condition that there In- no hazing. This agreement between authorities and students gave us the distinction of being the first class of which every member was heartily in favor of inter-collegiate football. A few days later we organized our class and elected our officers. On the following Monday afternoon we nailed our colors to a tree and invited the Sophomores to take them if they could. In the rush which followed—the first class rush in Furman University—we were deserted by many who decided that "it is I letter to be a live turkey than a dead hero." In the melee we lost our colors and most of our conceit. The loss of our colors did not discourage us, although we could not help feeling a little disgraced. But the crisis was over. The dawn was breaking. A short time after the class rush, while attending a reception at the h irst Baptist Church, we forgot all our troubles; and a few days later, at the President’s reception to the Freshman class, we buried them altogether. These social events were very much enjoyed. We will always feel grateful toward our friends who have thus remembered us. Although the social side of college life is important, there are many other things that have occupied our time. Wc have taken part in the exercises of the Young Men’s Christian Association. In our literary societies we have done the best we could. In all forms of athletics our class has made good records. Our hnskctlmll team easily defeated the Sophomores. And the men from our class who were on the football team made exceptionally fine showings. But our time has been taken up chiefly in preparing and reciting our lessons. While we have been engaged in these college activities a great change has come over us. Wc came from homes scattered over this and adjoining states. At first we were just so many individuals. But. gradually, bv organizing and by getting better acquainted with each other, wc have grown into a harmonious whole. We have learned to love old Furman and to honor and respect her teachers, who, by their example and instruction, have helped us daily to make the most of ourselves and our opportunities.The Furman Council OFFICERS E.

LOCKWOOD i'A. .PATTO.'i MLKin BLACK WARD BU2T5 Furman Council fi—BThe Furman Council OR several ytars past various attempts have been made to introduce a form of student government at Furman Cniversily. These have now culminated in the organization at the opening of the present session. September. 191.3. of the Furman Council. The type of government embodied in the Council is what may be called representative democracy. It is democratic in the sense that all the members except one are elected by the students; it is representative in the sense that the limited number thus chosen is representative of the student body as a whole. Thus the Council is the student body in some such way as the Congress of the I’nited States is the Tinted States. The Council is composed as follows: The Presidents of the I.ilerary Societies; the Presidents and the Secretaries of the four classes; the Managers of the various athletic teams; the Editors-in-Chicf of the Bonhomie and the Furman Echo, and the President of tin Mess, the latter being the only member appointed by the Faculty. The jurisdiction ami functions of the Council were determined by the special circumstances which called it into existence; these were as follows; At the December meeting of the Hoard of Trustees in Abbeville, 1912, a committee of the students presented a petition asking the Trustees to re-establish intercollegiate football, it being some eleven years since by the action of the Trustees football bad been abolished. This petition was granted, and at the dune meeting of tile Hoard of Trustees in 191.3. on further consideration of the subject .Mr. H. d. 1 laynsworth moved the following resolution: “Resolved. That the privilege of intercollegiate football at Furman voted at the December meeting of the Hoard of Trustees 1 I'urman I niversity, in 1912. will be continued at the discretion of the board and on condition that the students themselves suppress and prevent hazing in all its forms.” This resolution was presented to the three upper classes at four o’clock. September 17. 191.3. After explanations by the President the privilege of football was accepted on the conditions named by a unanimous rising vote of the classes concerned. It will be seen that this action by the students necessitated a student organization which should secure the enforcement of the requirement imposed bv the Trustees that hazing be suppressed. The Furman Council resulted, and its duties were defined as follows: First; To protect intercollegiate football by enforcing the requirement of tin Trustees that hazing be suppressed and prevented in all its forms.Second: To make and enforce rules for conduct of Freslunen. Third: To guard and conserve the common good of the student body in all matters pertaining to gentlemanly conduct. The Council felt that if it undertook to protect the Freshmen from hazing •• would he within its rights to demand that the Freshmen conform to such regulations as it might see tit to impose upon them. Perhaps the most important of these Freshmen regulations is the one requiring Freshmen to be in their rooms at nine o'clock at night. The Council holds one regular meeting each month for the consideration of the common good, and the Committee on Discipline of three, together with the President and Secretary, as cx-offieio members, constitute the F.xeeutive Committee. Hv way of keeping under their direct observation the life of their fellow students the Council appoints two Proctors for each floor of Montague Hall and two for each of the dormitories. It is the duty of these Proctors to preserve order and report any infringement of the rules of the Council. it was to be expected, of course, that such an organization of the student body would encounter some opposition, but this has been only slight, and the Council finds itself at the end of its first year of existence enjoying the support of the great majority of the students. These have come to see that the Council is the student body in the capacity of self-government; that it is organized for their good and that it has promoted the good of the entire community, in all the actions which it has taken. It is believed that after a year or so it will become so firmly established in the life of the institution and so wise bv the growth of experience in handling the matters coming before it that membership in it will be esteemed a chief honor for a student at Furman. In definition of the relations of the Council and the Faculty a method of procedure in the ease of findings submitted by the Council to the Faculty has been drawn up. This method of procedure is as follows: Whereas. The Furman Council has been organized as a method of student government for the common good of the student body, and Whereas. It is understood that in the handling of matters coming before it all disciplinary action originates with the Council, it is desirable that a method of procedure for the cases submitted to the Faculty be outlined as follows: 1. When the Council has concluded a disciplinary finding, the Secretary of the Council shall immediately notify the President of the Cniversity that the Council desires to submit a finding to the Faculty; this notice shall not state the particulars of the finding.%be3 on b omie 2. In the absence of the President, such notification shall be given to the ( hair-man of the Faculty; if the Chairman shall also be absent, it shall be given to tin Dean. .'f. The person so notified shall call a meeting of the Faculty as expeditiously as possible, and shall notify the President of the Council to lie present for the purpose of stating the particulars of tin- finding. I. The Council may suggest penalties, may recommend clemency or severity in the enforcement of the regulations of the institution, but these suggestions and recommendations are subject to review by the Faculty as a whole, with whom rests the final determination of what the penalty shall be, and who will co-operate with the Council in all proper ways in the enforcement of the said penalty. If there remains any single objection to the Council in the student mind we bespeak for the Council only a full and fair consideration of' its organization, purpose and work. We believe such consideration will remove all possible objections and tin men who object will discover that the Council is not only their friend, as fellow students may be friends, but that it is the protector of their rights and the sponsor of the common good of the entire community.T?be bonhomie T?'b-e bonhomie ',Philosophian Literary Society GAMMA SECTION OFFICERS FALL WltM SPRIXO TRIM President ....().

S.inter-Colleiiate DebatersVk eOS cu b omic Inter-Collegiate Debating OR years the colleges and universities of South Carolina and of tile adjoining states have been, to a greater or less degree, interested in intercollegiate activity, especially of an athletic nature. Athletics, giving as it does both physical and mental training to the athlete, and nurturing in the various colleges a strong, healthy college spirit, has absorbed our attention to the exclusion of almost everything else. Only recently has the student body of I'urman taken cognizance of the fact that a very important phase of intercollegiate activity—-that of debating is being undeservedly neglected; and henceforth it is our purpose to endeavor to set debating in its proper place among the colleges of this section. The highest and noblest form of combat is that between two thinking minds engaged in a debate. The well-trained muscles and the agile body of the athlete avail little in such a contest. Mere muscle and brawn are not the material employed in this mental clash, hut rather mind; and in proportion as the mind is unlimited, so is the material of debate unlimited. The debater must be constantly on bis mettle in order to turn aside the blow of some powerful mental weapon which his shrewd adversary has contrived, and with which his adversary purposes to deal him a fatal stroke at tin? moment when it will he least expected. And yet. through it all there is not the slightest form of anger, but rather the utmost coolness and decision. Nowhere can a more pleasing and profitable strife be found than on the debater's platform. Intercollegiate debating also has a powerful effect on the colleges participating in it. We may unhesitatingly say that it stimulates interest in debating in each college and arouses new enthusiasm for debating. The man who wishes to have the honor of debating for his college is encouraged to work all the harder, and as a result lie gains valuable mental training from debate. Again, intercollegiate activity, of any nature whatsoever, keeps alive the spirit of rivalry and the desire on the part of colleges mutually to excel. The man who has no desire to surpass his neighbor will amount to little in the world, and the same is true of a college. Therefore, intercollegiate debating directly aids and abets the growth of a college. Above all. the results of intercollegiate debates instead of the results of athletic contests, arc. in no small way. meters of the intellectual attainments of the colleges represented. Thus, the successful debater, in winning a debate against another college, reflects honor not only upon himself, but still more upon bis Alma Mater. Hence, realizing the value of tin's type of debating, we invite our neighboring colleges to aid us in our attempt to place equal emphasis upon athletics and debating, just as the ancient Greeks did. m.MMIIAS I .mil Ml V S«M'IKTVThe Adelphian Literary Society KTA SECTION OFFICERS FALL TliJiM SPKIXfJ TIMM C. .S.

A silence rested over the rugged landscape as if Nature herself were paying homage to the (lying day. The sun sank lower and lower until his fiery rim finally disappeared beneath the horizon. The eastern mountains changed from purple to black, the glow in the west liecamc fainter and fainter, high in the heavens a full moon began to grow from a dim shadow to a great shining orb. and another day was done. •lephtha. the Gileadite, arose from his couch and casting a soft robe .about his brawny shoulders strode forth from his tent. The vast hosts of the men of Gilead lay around him. A faint, half-pleased, half-proud smile played about the corners of his grim mouth as his glance wandered over the slumbering thousands. On just such a night, years before, he reflected, he had been forced to flee from his father's house, his native tribe, and to take up a life little better than that of an outlaw. Rut God, the God of Israel, who had brought his fathers out of the land of Kgypt. had been with him. He had prospered. Recently the Ammonites, ever warlike, had again descended upon Israel and no man had been found to lead the chosen people. The elders of Gilead had come to Jcphtha saying. “Come, and lx our captain, that we may light with the children of Ammon.” He had been placed at the head of the men of Gilead and now he was their leader, the man upon whom the victory or defeat of Israel depended. Again his thoughts turned to God. the Merciful, the Omnipotent. In His hands lay the fate of all. Yes. he would pray, pray as lie had never prayed before in all his lonely life, and perhaps.—yes. surely. God would deliver the Ammonites into his hands. The grim captain returned to his tent. Heedless of the sentry who walked to and fro only ten paces away, the leader of Gilead threw himself on his knees and poured out his soul in passionate supplication to his Maker. Out of the silence of the little tent his great, rough voice, now strangely softened by emotion, arose: "If thou. O Lord, shall without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands, then it shall be. that whatsoever cometh forth out of the doors of my house to meet me. when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the Lord’s, and I will oflYr it up for a burnt offering.” Bright, clear, and hot the morning dawned. The great sun. suddenly coming up out of the mountains, began to pour his hot rays upon the lmsv throngs of soldiers.Jcphtha stooil ill the door of his tent ami watched the preparations tor the battle that was soon to conic. The bright Hash of helmets and armor, the rattle ot accoutrements, the impatient shouts of the now thoroughly awakened soldiers, all rilled his soul with a wild, exhilarating confidence. Was not God on his side.' Had he not vowed a vow of sacrifice to Jehovah? Surely Israel would triumph! The two armies face each other. The trumpets of Israel peal a mighty blast and the battle is on. With a rush and a shout that grows to a roar the horsemen 01 Israel charge. Riders are hurled to the ground, their lives trampled out by their own steeds, hut the charge sweeps on. The ranks of the enemy give and break and into the gap made by the eavalrv the footmen of Israe l rush. Again the cavalry charges and again the ranks of the Ammonites break before- the- fierce- emslaught. No mercy is expe-cted and none is shown. Jehovah of Hosts is leading Israel, hut he is now a God of vengeance and His wrath is penired out upon the enemies e»f His chosen pern pie-. Out from Aroe-r the- confused Ammonites flee-. I;re»m city to city they are pursued by the victorious Israe lites until they come to Minnith. Here the remnant of the defeated army takes its stand, a final, desperate resistance- for life. The men e»f Gilead, flushed with victory, have- the- brave- little- bauel and return to the field of battle. The red sun ge»e-s down upon a scene t f carnage . All day he- has looked like- a scorching, unsympathetic e-ye upon the- hloexl e»f thousands, and as he- again leaves the- world to darkness the cries of the- wemnded and dying become fainter and fainter, and another day is done. Judith, the daughter of Jephtha, anxiously awaited any news of the battle. Throughout the long night she had waite-d until her delicate body was almost overcome with anxiety. Rut what eared she- for herself when her father and Jonathan, her Jonathan, we re in the- front of flu battle? Perhaps both father and love r were-now lying cold and dead upon some bloody field. She grasped a small brazier to steady herself and scarcely heeded the- burn as the- lie t eoals seared the tender flesh. No, it could not— it must not Ir A galloping horseman appeared far down the dustv road. His horse was foam-flecked and wcllnigh exhausted, hut still tile ride r plied Iris whip. As he drew nearer, his dust-covered features became more distinct. With a glad cry Judith recognized Jonathan and a minute later the lovers were; in each other's arms. “And fathe r?" was the first question that escaped the girl's lips afte r she had assured herself that her sweetheart was uninjured. “Safe and victorious, w.-is the- happy reply. There- was a moment of silence: then both lovers laughed as ifsonic wry amusing thing had happened. A hot (lush dyed Judith's cheeks and she (piickly released her ham! from Jonathan's grasp. This had been the tirst demonstration of their love- hut botli had understood. The happy shouts of the soldiers told the women and children of Gilead that God had again been on the side of Israel. Jephtha. now that Israel was safe, had no thought but to find his daughter and sec her happy smile as he told her of the victory. Throwing off his armor and bidding his tent hoy follow with it. he hastened homeward to Mi .pch. Me fore he came within sight of the house lie heard the sound of timbrels and knew that Jonathan had been the tirst to announce the victory. As he drew nearer, in spite of all Ids years, he could scarcely restrain a shout of triumph. Hut. no. he must surprise her. How happy she would he to see her old father again. He walked softl up to the door of his dwelling and started to peep in. Hut Judith was watching. With a happy little laugh she ran out to her father and the great rough captain clasped his beautiful, almost fragile daughter in his arms. Then as ii a blow had fallen upon his face he staggered hack. He could almost hear the harsh words ringing in his ears. "Tliv vow. thy vow to the I.ord God of Israel." The great soldier rent his clothes as if suddenly wild. Looking with streaming eyes at his only child he told her of his vow. "Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low and thou art one of them that trouble me: for I have opened mv mouth unto tin Lord and I cannot go hack. The beautiful face turned as white as marble, but the bloodless lips did not falter as sin- replied. "My father, if thou hast ope ned tin mouth unto the Lord, do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth; forasmuch as the Lord hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies, even of the children of Ammon." Long into the night the horrified lover pleaded with father and daughter, but to in avail. Jephtha remained silent, afraid to betray his emotions in speech, but still he was steadfast. Judith only replied. "Nay, Jonathan, it is for God.” In desperation the lover ran out into the darkness like one bereft of all reason. Hot. blasphemous words poured from his lips, but in his soul he knew’ that his rage was of no use. The morning found him still in the fields, almost exhausted. As lie slowly started toward his home an overwhelming, yet strangely gentle, sorrow spread over Ins whole being, and as the first rays of the rising sun tinged the distant mountain peaks with burning gold In lifted his arms in helpless reverence and lie. too. murmured. "It is for God." Three months had passed since the victory over the Ammonites. In that short time Jephtha, the Gileadite, had suddenly become an old man. His once proud headJ'Gbe onbomt ! hung listlessly on his shoulders. Occasionally a Hash of the old lirtr would conic to liis eyes only to gleam for an instant and then fade. leaving tin- lace despondent, helpless, and almost blank. Jonathan was no longer tin Jonathan that had loved Judith. No great change had come upon him physically, hut the look in his eyes was that of a man who bears unspeakable sorrows. Jephtha and Jonathan sal lie for (hi door at Jephtha's house. The two had been drawn together by a strange kind of sympathy. Since the sacrifice—all things seemed to date from the sacrifice- Jonathan had made his home with Jephtha. As they sat. each lost in his own meditations, a horseman suddenly appeared before the gate and rode up to the two men. I Ic sprang from his horse and facing Jephtha began to speak: “Jephtha of Gilead, the men of Kphraim hade me say this to thee: ‘Wherefore passedst thou over to fight against the children of Ammon and didst not call us to go with thee? Wo will burn thine house upon thee with fire.' " With no other word the messenger sprang upon his horse and galloped rapidly from sight. The two men sat silent for a moment: then both sprang up. Here was a chance for action, for war. and perhaps tor death—even death would be grateful. Jephtha's bowed shoulders again straightened as in the old days, but the expression in Jonathan’s eyes did not change. Two days later the armies of Gilead and Kphraim grappled in a struggle to the death. Jephtha. once more the confident leader, was every when ; shouting, encouraging. pleading, threatening. Jonathan was ever in the front of the battle. He fought with a reckless courage that caused more than one envious glance to he cast at him even amid the din of the battle. Yet not so much as a scratch marred his smooth skin. All dav the armies swayed to and fro like angr giants. As the day wore on the men of Kphraim began to weaken. Jephtha. ever watchful, saw his advantage, ('ailing his men to follow, he plunged into the ranks of the enemy and the line gave way before the attack. The sun went down upon the fleeing Kphraimites. Calling several of his captains. Jephtha ordered the left wing of his army to march immediately to the Jordan River and thus to intercept the defeated men of Kphraim. “Say unto them," he commanded. “ ‘art thou an Kphraimitc?' And if he shall sav ‘nay,’ then say unto him. 'say now Shibboleth.' and if he shall frame to pronounce it right then he may pass over. Rut if he shall say 'Sibboleth.' then smite him with the sword, for the men of Kphraim cannot frame to pronounce the word aright." The orde r was obeyed. The terror-stricken Kphraimites. thinking only of cs-cape. rushed blindly to tilt passages of tin- river. Here, like sheep, they were cut down by the merciless men of Gilead. Hundreds, thousands, were killed. AH through the battle Jonathan had fought as if in a dream. He had longed for death, prayed for death, hut God Himself seemed deaf. Hearing his captain give a command that the left wing should march to the river, he again grasped his Sword and joined the ranks of the soldiers. There would probably he more fighting and that meant another chance for death. As they drew near the river a sudden wild idea seized him. Yes. if God would not help him he would drown himself. In the confusion lie easily slipped from the ranks of marching men. He concealed himself in some hushes and waited until all of the men of Gilead had passed. Half an hour later lie crept from his hiding-place. Breaking into an apparently terrified run lie started toward the river. Out of the darkness a voice hailed him. Now was the lime! No. he was not sorry, just glad, glad! "Art thou an F.phraimite?” rang out the challenge. He must In- cunning hr his plan would fail. "Nay.” he responded. "Say now Shibboleth." This time the voice was much nearer. With a firm, unwavering voice he distinctly replied. "Sibboleth.” The soldier struck. As the night wore on the shrieks and cries gradually became fewer and fewer. A shv crescent moon peeped over the distant hills, hut the darkness hid the dav’s horrors. Another day was done. W. F. Cox.

M2.3$onbomie Bob, the Baggageman MK train was iatc. a common occurrence. for during tin whole ot the past winter the weather had been very rainy and the track was consequently in a had condition. As 1 leaned hack in my armchair, my reverie was interrupted only now and then by the intermittent clicks of the telegraph instrument, the report, perhaps, of some operator h the dispatcher. Gradually my mind turned to my work, and I began to review the dill'erenl happenings of the day. Everything had gone on splendidly until the last Gain was ready to leave, when through the blunder of the baggageman all of tin- outgoing baggage had been left. Mow much I would have given to have had Bob Beighton back again in my employ, no one knows, for tin- present mistake would never have occurred had he been handling the baggage. Bob was the son of respectable parents who believed in giving their children Hu finer things of life, and in teaching them to strive for other than the superficial. I Ic had finished the high school when hut fifteen and would have entered college the following autumn hut for bis youth. Bob had just been thinking of what he would do during the year which he would remain out of college when he received a message from his music teacher. The message was as follows: Dkah Boh: The ticket agent has just advised me that there is a vacancy in his ofliee and has requested me to help him find some one to fill it. Knowing that you expect to remain out of school for the coming year I thought perhaps you might he glad to learn of the vacancy. Your sincere friend, .J.nmks IIi ntku. When Bob applied to me for the position I was at first somewhat doubtful as to the wisdom of employing him. because of his youth; but when 1 looked into his honest and eager eyes I could not resist the thought of at least giving him a chance. I told him when to report for duty. On the following day he began work. By close application lie had soon mastered all the details of the work. Not only did he become a thorough master of his position, hut he also introduced new ideas into it. The young fellow who hail held the position before him had been of the flashy type and had often brought his companions into the baggage room t talk and laugh with him. to the neglect of his work. I was surprised one afternoon to hear Boh ordering one of the young sportsomi of the town away from the baggage room. But despite this occurrence he was heartily respected by them all. Another thing to which Hob turned his attention was the matter of collecting charges for excess baggage. Excess baggage is all baggage over the amount that one is allowed to carry on one ticket. Previous to this there had been great dissatisfaction on the part of the railroad officials because of the laxness of the baggagemen in collecting excess. Accordingly I instructed Hob to be sure to collect every cent of the excess. Soon after, an angry traveling salesman came to my window and said: “Say, what’s the matter with that little short, sawed-off, hammered-down, two-hy four out there in the baggage room, that he wants to charge me for ten pounds excess? Why it's unreasonable, it's simply highway robbery and 1 won't stand for it. “Why,” said I, “you will have to settle that with the baggageman. That is his affair and yours.” “All right” replied the traveling salesman. “I shall send all my goods hereafter by your competitor. Any railroad that is so little as to charge for ten pounds excess can go smash,” and with a snort he pushed his way out of the crowded waiting room. After the train had gone I called Hob and said: “Well, Hob, what was the trouble between you and the drummer?” “Nothing,” he replied, “only when 1 asked him if he had any excess baggage, he said ‘No.’ and, as his trunk was somewhat large, I ordered the porter to weigh it. When he saw that I was determined to weigh the trunk lie flushed up. pulled out a cigar somewhat nervously, handed it to me and said, ‘Oh. forget the change kid.' I declined it. thanked him and told him that the railroad paid me a salary for my services; whereupon lie came around to see you.” I commended Hob for his honesty and fearlessness in refusing to parley with the man, and then dismissed the incident from my mind. Some few days after we had sent in our monthly report. Hob received the following letter: Washington, I). ('.. April 10. 19—. Baggage Agent, Winona, Utah. Dear Sir: We note with pleasure the marked increase in collections for excess charges in your recent report. Please accept our thanks for same. Yours very truly, II. I-'. Johnson. General Baggage Agt.The short letter greatly encouraged Bob. and soon the traveling public learned that Winona was one station where excess charges had to he paid. The days passed rapidly by and soon the time drew near when Boh would leave for college. At last there remained but one week from the time of his departure. One morning, however, several days before he was to leave, as Boh sat at his desk running up his accounts, a small hoy came into the office and handed Bob a note. As the manly fellow read the note I noticed that lie grew suddenly pale. At last lie looked up with tears in his eyes and said: “Mr. (’arson, I have just received a message stating that my father has met with a serious accident. I shall have to go home immediately. However. I shall try to send some one to help you.” One week later came the news of his father's death. Boh was now thrown upon his own resources, and upon him rested the burden of supporting the family. Of course he was unable to go to college, and as he was such an efficient baggageman, I made it plain to him that he need not worry about losing his position. Bob continued to fill the position as baggageman, but I could see that he was becoming restless, and had not yet given up his hopes of obtaining an education at some time or other. One morning about ten months later there came into the office a tall businesslike man. He placed his valises near the window, pulled out a notebook, did some figuring and finally called for a ticket to a small town about ten miles away. About five minutes before the train arrived lie went around to the baggage room and called for a check for his baggage. Bob ordered the porter to weigh it. The stranger flashed a look at him and said, “Say. kid, there's only three minutes before train time and if you go to all that trouble mv baggage will be left." Bob said nothing to the man but turning to the porter he said: “Jim, weigh that baggage, and be quick about it." Just then tin- train arrived. “How much excess is there?” asked the man. "The baggage weighs two hundred and twelve pounds, and deducting ten pounds for differences in scales there is two pounds excess.” “I shan’t pay it,” said the stranger, "but on the contrary shall send in a complaint to headquarters.” “You may pay it or not, just as you wish," said Bob, “but I warn you, if you do not pay your baggage does not leave this station. “All right, young man,” said the stranger, "we will see about that.”.Inst then tile train pulled out. and the stranger swung on the rear coach just in time to prevent his being leit. Two days later a letter came from headquarters, addressed to the baggage-master and marked personal. As he read it Hob’s face Hushed and 1 noticed a look of joy in his eyes. The letter was as follows: Tin: Bagoagk Agent, Winona. I'taii. Washington. I). July 21, 19- Dear Bob: Kvcr since you have filled the position of baggage agent at Winona, there has been a marked increase in the collections made by your office. This increase has been noticed by your superior officials, and recognizing the worth of good men they decided to promote you. However. I wished to test you myself, and to see what sort of stuff you were made of. You yourself know the rest. It was my trunk that you refused to send off two days ago. Realizing the need of well-trained men in our service, I have decided to give you a college education. The opportunity is yours to do with as you choose. Wishing to hear from you further, Yours truly. H. F. Johnson. The following fall Hob entered a college in the East and from the reports that have come back home lie is living up to the reputation that he bore when he was simply, Hob. the Baggageman. W. J. Nixon.Chronicles of the First Year of Intercollegiate Football at Furman 1. Now it came to pass in the first year oi" the reign of Woodrow Wilson, in the ninth month of the year and the seventeenth day of the month, that a certain school which by name is called Furman did open. 2. The students thereof did Hock hither, greatly elated and expectant, for the ciders of the school had restored to it a game called football to be played with other schools. 8. In preparation for great conflicts with other schools the students did employ a man from the land of the North whom they called coach. 4. Moreover they did select a team of eleven of the stoutest men in all the land to play the game; and these men did dress themselves in clothes of the toughest nature; and they shod their feet with mighty shoes wherewith to trample upon the countenances of their enemies. 5. Thus prepared, the students of Furman awaited the conflicts with other schools with much zest. ( . And it came to pass in the fullness of time that other teams of men similarly clad and trained did meet the Furman team, and they did battle desperately, sweating like oxen under the noonday sun. 7. The season waned; and when there was only one game left to be played, the Furman team had worked diligently and did flourish like a tree planted bv the rivers of water whose leaf withereth not. 8. Now it happened that the last game of the season had been arranged to Ik played on a great feast day—a day called Thanksgiving; and another team came from afar to meet the Furman team in death-grapple. 1). About the ninth hour of the day the opposing teams did line themselves up against each other, and one did kick the pigskin to the other, and the two teams did meet with a mighty crash in the middle of the field. 10. The lines surged up and down the gridiron and the onlookers did keep up a continuous racket, yelling and screaming and shouting. 11. The men sweated and fought and struggled; and it came to pass that the Furman team did begin to triumph over the opposing team. 12. Now it happened in that part of the game that is called the second quarter that one man did get into a scramble and did fall down; and three of his teammates did stand all at one time upon the bridge of his nose; and lu- was sorely hurt.13. But the manager did run out and pour water over Ins head; and he did sit up and look about him with a great flame in his eyes, counting it all joy to sutler in so noble a cause. I k And lie did get up and play harder than ever. 15. The game continued with great force and vigor; and ever and always the score of Furman was increasing, while that of the opposing team did remain at zero. 16. Now it came to pass near the close of the game that one man wearing a purple garment with white stripes on it did receive the ball and did start very quickly —yea. so quickly and with so much force that he went straight through the very center of the opposing line. 17. And he stopped not until he had crossed the goal and scored a touch-down. 18. Whereupon the people did raise a great shout and did fling their hats heavenward and did rejoice greatly and make glad. 19. And the manager did run out on the field and did pluck the captain by the arm and did say to him: “() Captain, cease thou. I prithee, to make scores, for. if not, we will verily he forced to purchase for ourselves an adding machine wherewith to record the number thereof." 20. But the plea of the manager was vain, for Furman did continue to score even unto the end of the game. 21. And it came to pass when the game was ended that the victory for Furman was very great; and all the people did rejoice and exult exceedingly. 22. And the prowess of the Furman team was noised abroad through all the land. 23. And that day the sun did set on a successful football season at Furman, a season which passed in the first year of the reign of Woodrow Wilson. S.

R.MOBLEy. C.F: SIMS. Officers of Y. M. C. A.The Kansas City Convention HIS New Year was ushered in by the greatest student convention of the present student generation. It is a significant fact that nearly four thousand young college students from all over North America were willing to deny themselves the pleasures of the last Christmas holidays and gather in the Seventh International Convention of the Student Volunteer Movement held in Kansas City, Mo., from December .'{1st to January 1th. It marks the present body of North American students as Christian. We may well count ourselves fortunate to be members. The Kansas City Convention, as the last and best of the series of meetings which have been held every fourth year since 1886. was the Meeea toward which the truly earnest members of this student generation had set their faces. It was best characterized by the words of its chairman, I)r. John It. Mott, as he said, “We have come here to face the wholeness of the task that confronts the forces of Christ as they look into the non-Cliristian world." It was simply big, world-wide. In the words of another it was "this mount of inspiration." From that mount the whole Christian movement was to la- seen in its entirety. The Convention appeared as the war council of a world’s army. The leaders were there to plan the coming campaign. They had an enormous map of the field, were studying the ground, and explaining all to their subordinates. Those who had been on the various battlefields, those who were replenishing the war chest, and those who were recruiting the ranks had met together to study the situation. All these were included in the five thousand delegates. The surroundings measured up to the importance of such a world movement. The enormous hall and crowds are indelibly impressed upon the minds of those who attended. The eagerness, unity of purpose, and determination of that body were irresistible. There was a spiritual power that moved like a wave over the hearts of those assembled there. This wave has rolled on out to the eight hundred or more colleges and universities that had their representatives at that council of war. Those representatives have gone back to teach their fellow privates. They will need to organize the companies to go in the summer to the various sectional conferences for drill work. We are glad that our Y. M. C. A. was so fortunate as to have its full quota of delegates at the Kansas City Convention, and we hope their inspiration may lie expended in the best work. May the wave of influence now going out increase its circle throughout the next four years until another is started from the center by the next Volunteer Convention in 1918..11 i s Mkmomiai.

We cannot help cheering yet when we think of the many times the bow-legged skectcr got completely loose and went for a touch down. Kvcrvl ody regrets that this is A.

We feel sure that no other man could have have been more successful than he in putting out a winning team. Farmer is an athlete of wide reputation and has made a sjweialty of football.

I had been studying hard in my room; hut at eleven o’clock I rose from niv table to prepare to go to bed. In order to refresh myself before retiring. I decided to walk down the hall of the dormitory and get a few breaths of fresh air. M hen I had gone about half way to the far end of the hall. I passed by a room whose door was open. The light was burning: the window opposite the door was up; and the wind coming in through it had scattered papers about the room and was now blowing rain in on the floor. “Evidently,” 1 thought to myself, “these fellows went out before the rain started, leaving the window up. and haven’t yet returned. I 'll go ill and close it." I had just pulled down the window when a typewritten manuscript on the floor caught my eye. Across the top of the first page were these words: “.Minutes of the Fast Meeting of the Anti-Ecminine Club.’’ “What in the world can this her” thought I. I knew that we had a “Club of the Thirsty Fishes” here, the “Red Ravens.” and the notorious "Kata Rita Pies"; but I never suspected any such organization as an Anti-Feminine Club, not with two girls colleges within the city limits. Perhaps I did wrong; perhaps not. At any rate, the next tiling I knew (I attribute my action to an uncontrollable curiosity), the minutes of the Anti-Feminine Club and I were in niv room close up to the fireside; the door was locked; and I. in spite of a guilty conscience, was looking forward with a great deal of pleasure to the reading of this singular document. Carefully locked in my trunk have 1 preserved it ever since that night. Here it is: Meeting House, 12:02 A. M.. (just after moving pictures). Meeting called to order bv President Sawyer; prayer by Chaplain Andrews; roll call by Secretary Zcigler. Minutes of previous meeting read by First Assistant Woman Hater Loadholt and adopted with only thirteen corrections. The chair then announced that we would proceed with the literary program, which, he added, he hoped would prove beneficial to all present. The first speaker of the evening was Mr. R. (i. Skinner. His subject was: “Why I am a successful student.” Mr. Skinner’s remarks were very helpful. He attributed his great success, especially in German and Astronomy, to the fact that heT? b e 3 cm b omte took absolutely no interest whatsoever in the so-called tair sex. While the other fellows,” said Mr. Skinner, “are chasing around town, making dates, attending par-tits. calling at G. F. ('., and going to church to get to see the girls, where am I ? No. if I'm not at the Majestic being elevated in spirit by a good vaudeville show, then I'm in my room studying Ethics and learning the satellites of Saturn." Mr. Skinner concluded his address with an earnest plea to all members to stick to their books. The next man to address the meeting was Mr. .1. M. Truluck. His subject was one upon which lie was well qualified to speak I ragedies of a Lover. Mr. I ru luck said that he had tried this business of falling in love no less than one hundred twenty-nine and three-fourths times since he had been at 1'urinan. Ilis plea was indeed pitiful. W e all wept. "Don't fall in love, boys." said the speaker, "It's awful. I've tried it. They're all fickle." "Amen.ventured Sergeant-at-Arms Frank Cox. "And fellows,” concluded Mr. Truluck, "remember this: it's all vanity. Don’t fall in love." W hen the president had dried the tears brought forth by Mr. Truluck s touching address, lie introduced the third and last speaker of the evening, Mr. W K. Loadhoit. of Fairfax, S. whose subject was: “A Mathematical. Philosophical, and Ethical Dissertation upon the Fallacies and Short-comings of Love-Making." Before Mr. Loadhoit could begin, a knock was heard at the door. It was O. ('. Scarborough, that was all. Mr. Loadhoit then took the floor. It was indeed a serious occasion. The speaker had supreme control of himself. Adjusting his numerous papers on the table before him. he shrugged his shoulders three times, knitted his brows, and in a dignified and solemn manner began after this fashion: "The greatest science of all sciences is Mathematics. The greatest mathematician of all mathematicians was Sir Isaac Newton. Sir Isaac Newton never married. That fact is supreme for us." Continuing, the speaker showed how this great man. unhampered by family ties, invented the three laws of motion, discovered gravitation, wrote a book, and did several other things of great importance. All this, he said, was encouraging to him. a man who had resolved never to allow his mind to be drawn from the study of Mathematics by the lures and charms of the so-called ‘‘fair sex." Further details of this great speech would require too much space. Suffice it to say that it was one of the greatest ever pulled off liefore the Anti-Feminine Club; and it received five minutes applause. W hen the applause ceased, the business session was entered upon. Under the head of election of new members. Professors Bradshaw and Payne were elected honorary members, the former on condition that he break up all his pho nograph records containing female voices. This point called forth much comment, for it was argued, if this should he done, all the records would have to be destroyed except one a violin solo entitled “Put Your Arms Around Me. Honey, Hold Me Tight." At last, however, Professor Bradshaw’s name passed. Second Assistant Woman Hater Ballentine proposed the name of Mr. E. K. Gardner for membership. The gentleman was ruled out of order. Mr. R. G. Skinner then got up and brought accusation against Mr. Ballentine. He charged that gentleman with having stayed up until 1:30 a. m. the night before reading Tennyson's “Maud.” Moreover, Mr. Ballentine had received, three days before, a letter postmarked Greenville that smelled like talcum powder. Furthermore, the gentleman in question had been heard singing "I Need Thee Every Hour” that very day. Mr. Skinner argued that when such a man as Mr. Ballentine sings “1 Need Thee Every Hour.” there must be a reason for it. In the face of this overwhelming evidence against the gentleman, there was but one thing to do—expel him. The motion to do this, made by Mr. Skinner, was unanimously carried: and Mr. Bal-Icntine was put out of the hall by Sergeant-at-Arms Prank Cox. Warning was issued to Chaplain Andrews that if any more of those suspicious-looking. purple stationary epistles came to him postmarked Greenwood, he would follow in the steps of Mr. Ballentine. This concluded the business of the evening Report of Sergeant-at-Arms Prank Cox. Prayer by Chaplain Andrews. Adjournment. S.

Phoki.snok Dear students, have you this one truth into your mein'ries packed. In this class of geometry we all must lie exact? Now I his one question I will ask and you the answer tell: W'liat is a point? Now think awhile, and give the answer well. Stuiknt - A point, it is the little end of needle or of pin. Piiohsnoii That's wrong. You have another chance. I ask of you again: What is a line? Can you not tell without your text-hook's aid? Si:eoNi» Sri in.nt straight line is a little streak with pen or pencil made. , curved line is a straight one bent. I know these answers well: A broken line’s I wen dropped and cracked. Pshaw!

Then at lead the circle's shape you’ll know. Curloin. A. Pickens Ml.Confessions of a Bashful College Man Well now, my friends, I must admit, because it is tin truth. That I have been and am right now—a very bashful youth. And when the ladies came around, I've oft to hiding rushed: But if I cotdd not get away, I hung around and blushed. And yet somehow one feels compelled to love the ladies some; So this is why my troubles sore, have with the Muses come. Because, you know, man's social heart to live alone refuses. And so I simply was compelled to woo the gentle Muses. You see there're nine of the-e fair maids, and each one has her parts In music or in poetry or in the kindred arts. There're six that deal in verse and song, the stage, and such like things. And al ! It's fine to hear these six strike on the lyre's strings. Or sing a song, or quote a verse, all me, it is sublime! But with the Muse of History I've had the finest time. She was a very wise old girl and Clio was her name. She told me of the days of yore; of many men of fame; Of happy golden times of old when h'gvpt land was young And of the days ere Homer blind his wondrous tales had sung. Urania was among the group, she was a lovely maid. The Muse of all the shining stars, and oft with her I strayed Beneath the shining starry skies, and she to me then told The wonders of those shining orbs that glitter bright as gold. But sweetest pleasures fade away, and glory has an end. And one sad thing has intervened, and I no longer spend Whole happy hours with these fair maids, because I met one day The other sister of the group, so smiling, fair, and gay; And still I could not like the maid, although she was entrancing. Because, despite her charming ways, she was the Muse of Dancing. So when this last one came around I saw ’twas up with me This Muse of Dancing put me out, the fair Terp-sich-o-re. My slippers they arc number tens. I’m clumsy like a bear. And so I never can agree with this gay maiden fair. And since each sister for her sake my wooing now refuses. I'm left without a girl at all. for I can’t court the Muses. A. I,. I’ickkxs.The Girls Who Wear the Blue (To (J. F. C.) Wlmt sets the student’s heart aglow And puts his heart athrill. Like that long line that inoveth slow From yonder green-dad hill? On it a building large doth stand The dearest spot in all the land. For there, ’tis there, we find the band Of girl» who wear the blue. All thoughts of books are put to rout When that long line we see. Which, linked sweetness, long drawn out. Itself doth seem to be. Their faces radiant with the gleam Of beauty, and their eves abeam, Till life seems but a ceaseless dream Of girls who wear the blue. But sweeter still those happy hours, When joyful Beauty calls. And tells us that the time is ours To mingle in the halls And parlors of that very place. Where dwell those blue-dad forms of grace; And then we mingle face to face With girls who wear the blue. How lone’twould be without them, too That brings another thought What we in future years shall do. When time to us hath brought Life’s toil; afar from books and chalk May it be ours to gently walk Along life’s path, and live and talk. With one who wore the blue. A. L. Pickens.The Unknown Message of Music Oh, could I but know what the music is’saying. Some spirit unseen is speaking I'm sure In ;i voice like the sound of a soul's ardent praying Or echoes from hearts that are tender and pure. Oil. I’m sure ’tis the voice of a spirit eternal. Some language celestial resounds in the notes. Ami if I could hut lisp in the language supernal I'd know the sweet message that hitherward floats. A. Ii. Pickens.Our Last Word T has been well said that one's college course looks very long Iron) the Freshman end of it and very short from the Senior end of it. Our experience -tlie experience of the present Senior class has certainly borne out the statement •The first morning we attended chapel in the old Alumni Mall, the three years that would pass before we should be Seniors stretched away into the futile so far that we almost doubted that the old world would run that much longer; and as for graduation— well, that seemed as far distant as the stars. Mow mistaken we were! How short has been our story here! W hy. it seems as if it wojjc only yesterday that it was 1910 and we wi re Freshmen oil the campus. Hut the time has gone by; and now our college course is at an end. W hat shall wc say of it? First of all. we would like to soy that we have enjoyed our stay at Furman. The pleasures have far outnumbered the pains. Our professors have taught us. helped us. given us an insight into the higher things of life, made us better. The matrons in the dormitory have been as kind to us as our own mothers would have been. Then. Greenville is a good town; and more than one man of our number can truthfully say that, except for Ins immediate family circle, lie can think of more and dearer friends here than he can think of in his own home community. W’e have enjoyed being in Greenville. In the second place, we would like to say that we are leaving Furman with a feeling of sadness. And do you wonder why? W’e are leaving many friends, there are so many things that we might have done better bad we held ourselves to our duty, and then—well, we don’t know exactly why but we are leaving with a touch of sadness. In the third place, we would like to say to the students who return to Furman that we leave a precious legacy. You have the name of our Alma Mater in your hands. It is yours to carry the old purple and white on high through the thick of the fight. Can you play football? Go play it well so that people may know what sort of .stuff’ Furmanites are made of. Can you play baseball, tennis, basketball? Can you debate? Make the best use of what talents you have—for Furman’s sake. As for us. we are leaving to try to do a little good in the world to try to live in such a wav as to reflect honor on our Alma Mater.NEXT.'FURMAN UNIVERSITY KDWIN M.

Our strong fort is the right kind of training for REAL business—the training that gives you the “know how” assurance—and the “job” will then take care of itself. We emphasize this point because some young people, and apparently some business colleges, seem to have an idea that the chief function of a business college is to furnish jobs rather than business training. We deliver “the goods” in both. And we see that the training is such that you can “make good” when you get the chance—and that is the important point. If you want to be a winner instead of a perpetual “job chaser” you should get your business training with us. Draughon’s Practical Business College Parkins Building, Phone 723 :: GREENVILLE, S.

It seems that so many of our supporters in the advertising line feel that the students do not show their appreciation for the aid given our publication by those who advertise, therefore, they hesitate to advertise. Some of the firms of Greenville do not feel disposed to assist us at all. Now listen! We want to urge all students and friends who are interested in our Annual publication to co-operate with the Managers by giving their trade to the firms who advertise with us. We could not possibly get out another Bonhomie if our friends who advertise with us were to withdraw their support. Therefore we beg of you to read over carefully all of the advertising matter in this publication, and then throughout the year support them as best you can. MANAGERS
