We have endeavored to give throughout the book a touch of the real Furman Spirit. We hope that the class of 1928 will feel that the book is theirs, and in the years to come will turn its pages with joy. closing their eyes and living again some of the happy days on the Hill.

The enrollment has reached 3 27. distributed as follows: Freshmen ..... . ... ......... ... 182 Sophomores ............ 120 Juniors . 90 Seniors 99 Law Students .................. . 18 Special Students .............. . 1 | Extension Students ................ In addition. 30 correspondence students have been enrolled. The classroom work has been particularly successful. The quality credits system requiring that a certain clearly defined standard of quality as well as of quantity be attained for graduation is proving decidedly stimulating and in the judgment of the Faculty is already justifying itself. More students are passing their work and passing with higher grades than in previous years. Require ments for entrance are being rigidly enforced and a better type of student is entering college. Strict entrance requirements and high standards for graduation arc steadily raising the quality of work done in Furman University. Student activities have been gratifyingly successful. The Glee Club has again won the State and Southern championships and for the third year has represented the South in the national contest in New York City. Radio fans all over the country heard the club on Saturday night. March 10. in this con test. The football and basketball teams were state champions, and at this writing the baseball team promises to wage a vigorous battle for state honors. The departmental clubs have been very active and have contributed in an important way to the cultural life of the university. A national honorarv science fraternity. Chi Beta Phi. has granted a chapter to Furman, open to students in all the science departments. The Y. M. C. A. has been active, and excellent results have been accomplished. The annual revival meeting, led this session by Dr. T. I.. Holcomb of Texas, was a blessing to students and faculty. The Judson Memorial Baraca Class and the Cooperative Class of the First Baptist Church Sunday School have been well attended and have deepened the spiritual life of the stu dents. Other classes in other Sunday schools have been the means of helping the men in their religious life. The University community has been particularly fortunate in having an unusually large number of missionaries to make addresses in chapel during the year. The review of the year 1926-1927 ended with a reference to the Alumni Campaign inaugurated six years ago with the purpose of adding $500,000 to the endowment of the University. The original campaign period ended April 30. 1927. but the General Education Board, which had promised $175,000 if the University would raise $325,000. granted an extension of time to April 30. 1928. Only a few thousand dollars remain to be raised and efforts are being pushed to bring the campaign to a successful conclusion. R. N. Daniel. Dean. Page TlOrntg-seccn SHORT HISTORY OF GREENVILLE ABOUT one hundred and fifty years ago Greenville County, after a year's war with the Indians, was ceded to the State of South Carolina. This section, known as Greenville District, had previously been the hunting ground of the Cherokee Nation, and was only slowly settled by white men. First hunters, then traders made their way into the new land, then following in the wake of these came the permanent settlers. One of the first settlers. Richard Paris, in 1776 built a corn mill on the falls of Reedy River, just opposite the site of the present Camperdown Cotton Mills. The number of inhabitants increased, and soon the name Pleasantburg was given to the little settlement. Plans were drawn up for a town in the middle of which was to be located the court house, and down one of the side streets of which was to be a gaol, as the jail house was at that time called. The original plat called for four blocks on the east side and four blocks on the west side of a street leading from the river to the head of the avenue. The head of the avenue is the place where Washington street now intersects Main. Most of the land was then owned by Lemuel J. Alston. He put on sale the newly-surveyed lots of Pleasantburg. but they went slowly. The first one. an acre in size, sold for $100. Soon Mr. Alston sold his entire holdings to Vardry McBee of Lincolnton. N. C. Shortly before then the name of the little town had been changed from Pleasantburg to Greenville, and though the origin of the name is uncertain it is probably derived from the name of the Revolutionary leader. General Nathaniel Greene. For a few years around 1851 Greenville flourished as a summer resort. The following years saw the establishment of Greenville Female College: the gradual growth of the town: the erection of the more influential churches: the early popularity of Chick's Springs: and in 1852 the establishment here of Furman University. The newspapers of Greenville have been important factors in the growth of the place. The oldest was The Mountaineer, which for years was owned and edited by Col. James A. Hoyt. There were also the Daily Nett , later becoming the Greenville Neics: and the Evening Herald. which became The Piedmont. The Southern Railroad coming in 1872. and Laurens Railroad in 1882. brought im portant advantages to Greenville, then beginning about 1894 began the growth of textile industries which has given the city of Greenville the right to .all itself the "Textile Center of the South." Turning from the history of Greenville, it would be interesting to consider a few up-to-date facts relative to the city and surrounding sections. There arc in the county twenty-five textile establishments manufacturing annually products valued at S40.000.000. In addition the largest dyeing and finishing plant in the South, and the only bleaching plant which handles fancy silk and cotton mixed goods for the trade are located here. J. F. Sirrine id Company, nationally known engineers, has its home in Greenville The chief money crop of the county is cotton, and the staple is cultivated here as a rule free :rom the ravages of the boll weevil. In recent years strides have been made in fruit growing, particularly along the slopes of Paris Mountain. and the livestock industry is proving increasingly profitable. With the exception of Memphis and New Orleans. Greenville is the largest inland cotton center cast of the Mississippi River. The banking resources of the city total more than $25,000,000. The public school enrollment of Greenville proper and suburbs is over 10.000. The Public Library ministering to the reading needs of Greater Greenville has an annual circulation of over 200.000 volumes, and represents the last word in efficient management. Greenville, with an altitude of 1.040 feet, lies four and one-half miles from Paris Mountain with an altitude of 2.054 feet, while about thirty miles from the city and touching the northern edge of the county are the ranges of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Fxccllent highways lead from the "Textile Center" to the "Land of the Sky.' Page Tiventy-eight  SHORT HISTORY OF FURMAN UNIVERSITY FURMAN University had its birth in the Baptist Slate Convention of December. 1825 Here after a great struggle and prolonged deliberation, the resolution, to establish the institution, was passed. Property in Edgefield was deeded to the State Convention on March 17. 1826. and the institution opened its doors to students on the day of January 15. 1827. The new-born academy remained in Edgefield only a year and a half, being known while there as the Furman Academy and Theological Institution. In 1829 the institution was removed to the High Hills of Santee and there it remained until the year 1834. The school was closed for two years 1835-36. and was reopened at Winnsboro on a large tract of land, where the institution tried for some time to maintain a Manual l abor Classical School. The theological department was added in 1838. In 1851 the institution was removed to Greenville and began another struggle for life. Here it was rcchartercd The Furman University, and fifty-nine acres were appropriated for its use. In 1852 the college for such it was now. formally began to do its work. In 1859 the theological department, headed by Dr. James C. Boyce, was changed into a separate institution and was moved across the river to McBec street. This, though a wise move, was a tremendous blow to Furman, as it took some of her strongest professors and all of the money tl 3t had been designed for the theological department. It was in this year that Dr. James C. Furman became president of the University. Following the Civil War the University reopened its doors but it was only through an intense struggle that the institution was kept going. Lack of finances was a constant sword over the heads of all connected with the college until in 1885 and 1886. under the leadership of R. H. Griffith, a considerable endowment fund was raised This period was under the leadership of Dr. Manly, who had succeeded Dr. Furman in 1881. He held this position until 1897 when Dr. Montague assumed the presidency. During Dr. Montague’s term of only five years, the Alumni Hall. Fitting School, and Montague Hall were built. Dr. E. M. Potcat became president in 1903. In this year also. SI 25.000. through the agency of Rev. Joel I. Allen, was subscribed to the endowment fund. In 1905. Mr. Carnegie offered to give SI 5.000 for a library building, provided that $15,000 be raised here at Furman for the endowment of the library. Dr. Judson met this offer and so created the Charles H. Judson Endowment Fund for the library. Dr. Judson died in January. 1907. after having given his life to the University. He had served as professor, acting president, dean, and treasurer, throughout fifty-six years In his will Dr. Judson made the Library Endowment Fund the residuary legatee of his estate. The University is now under the guidance of Dr. W. J. McGlothlin. During his administration the size of the institution has greatly increased, going from two hundred students to over five hundred: the endowment has grown from over $200,000 to over $2.000.000: departments of education and law' have been added, and full courses in pre-medical work have been offered. In December. 1926. the centennial of the University was celebrated. Speakers, scholars, and leaders in education came from over the country to rejoice with Furman in the celebration of passing this milestone of her history. Now Furman seems assured of a glorious future. The days of despairing hope arc passed and Furman is destined to become far greater and more influential than she has yet dreamed of.

Certainly he has shed glory on all the enterprises with which he has been associated during his successful quartet of years at Turman. One of the most capable men of the class, he has often been called upon to handle affairs that required skill and tact, and—yes. even hull at times. And on all these occasions he has acquitted himself as a man Studies have not worried Ernest much because they couldn't. ITom the first day he entered this institution he has been master of himself, and his scholastic efforts have been well rewarded. A half dozen "A's" are nothing more to him than the commonest occurrence would be to the average student. As he is known on the campus. Hrnest i well dressed, slightly dignified, a genial and steady person with a pleasing personality. He is prominent socially as well as scholastically; his jovial smile and happy disposition have made for him a host of friends who strongly admire this gem of the Textile Center.

Oren came to iurman from the wilds and wide open spaces of Nichols, South Carolina He said that he had come seeking a “college diploma, whatever that might be.” and soon began to work assiduously, but not laboriously, for one. Now he says that he has realized his ambition. “after 1 have been here four long years." One outstanding characteristic he has—and we envy him for it—that is. his power over “the wimmin." Whatever his charms may be. we have never seen him keeping company with Old Man Melancholy any time that some of the fair sex have been around And the number of parties he attends' Such popularity must be deserved. Oren is the proud possessor of a melodious tenor voice, and during his .Junior and Senior years he has "done his bit" by singing with the championship glee clubs. He can sing—and how! Caruso himself would stop to listen. Oren says he is going to teach after graduation: but with such a voice as his. we make bold to prophesy that his successes will be more musical than pedagogical.

When Rolfc's name is heard on the campus we immediately think of a quiet, easy-going and good-natured fellow whom many are proud to call a friend. Before entering i'urman. "Pink." as he is called by his fellow countrymen from Pountain Inn. attended Davidson and Emory, and during the short time that he has been with us he has proved that he is made of no common clay. His popularity at Davidson and Emory is attested to by the fact that he made a leading fraternity at each school. To use his exact words. "I'm a Sigma Chi and proud of it." Rolfe is noted for three things, namely, his fine clothes, his past-ma if cry in the art of legging, and his common sense. This last endowment best fits him for his chosen profession— law. He has one distinct failing, however, which is sure to affect his life at one time or another. He has fallen into the wiles of the fair sex. and a hard fall he has had. This is proved by the fact that he never lets a week slip by without a visit to G. W. C. to see a pretty little brown haired and blue-eyed lassie whose name cannot be divulged because of Rolfc's bashfulncss. Rolfe. we believe in you.

Henry firmly believes that "Friends arc a man's greatest asset." and he has made many while he has been at Furman. His pleasant smile, jovial dis; ositi»n. ami friendly expressions have won for him an everlasting place in the hearts of those who have known him. Like all true Furman men, Henry caught the real Furntan spirit soon alter entering college, and has had it ever since. He has never failed to do his liest for his Alma Mater. At the end of his Sophomore year he realised one of his highest ambitions by winning a premier position on the varsity tennis team; and he has held that jiosition admirably, lie devotes himself whole-heartedly to whatever he undertakes, whether it be playing tennis, legging the Faculty, or winning the heart of a girl. Henry has taken many course at Furman, some liccause they were required, some because they were "crips." and some just for pleasure. However, he has never allowed his studies to interfere with the social phase of his college education, and most of his “pleasure courses" have been of the Campus and Parlor type.

Jesse is indeed a student. At North Greenville Academy, he made a great record along scholastic lines and in no way did he let up when he came to Furman. He is finishing in three years, and listen friends. Greek is his "crip" course. After Jesse finishes his work here at Furman, he intends to further prepare himself for the work in the ministry at Louisville. He is married, but he felt he was called to preach and he is preparing himself as he should.

Up at his home Moonshine is active on dark nights, hut Perry never allowed it to run around him. He is even shy of distilling apparatus in Chem lab. Bates has decided that life is more than making a living, and consequently he has set out with the purpose of doing something worth while in the world. If Dark Corner has been converted into a national playground or park, and there arc lots of people for him to practice on. he may settle down there after he completes his medical education. Only a few things like taking the internal ear out of a dog-fish, ever gave P. T. 3ny trouble. Nature has endowed him for big things, and all he needs now is a little time and an opportunity. ■■■■■■■■■■■■ 5- if | I William Larry B fa son woodruff, s. c. B.s. Y. M. C. A.

Larry, who hails from the metropolis of Woodruff. He enjoys life to the fullest, and never takes things too seriously. Larry is not one of these fellows who has nothing to say. he generally has something to talk about whether it is worth listening to or not. This ability at casting forth a "line of bull” has made him well-known by everybody at Furman, and has almost persuaded Professor Smith to buy a Chevrolet. Larry says "that the name W. I Reason will be the determining factor in estimating the goodwill of some large corporation " His dogmatic judgments have made many professors and students sit up and take notice. Larry's favorite sport is receiving long distance calls on Wednesday and Friday nights (the nights that he has classes). Larry wants a little home for two. and then maybe more. Larry, old friend, we wish you enormous success in this and all other enterprises.Jamhs Hampton Black Kings Mountain. N. C. b.A. Sigma Phi Delta.

The above is the unforgcUblc likeness of one ‘’Burrhead" Black, a big cigar man who hails from the North State where men arc men and Chesterfields are fifteen cents per package. While at Furman he has upheld his enviable record as a well-rounded gentleman, since he participates in athletics, social functions, and study (sometimes). He has also upheld his reputation as a business man by running the Furman Pressing club with no mean degree of success during his last year with us. ■'Burrhead" has a host of friends who wish him well in his further preparation for and pursuit of his life's work as a dentist. The experience he received in managing the pressing establishment will, in all probability, enable him to take care of the business side of his profession, and the principles of fair play which he learned while playing basketball will compel him to be very gentle in extracting eye-teeth from old men. ■‘Burrhead's” popularity makes his departure from Furman the cause of a great deal of regret. He has been a gentleman in his conduct, a good athlete, especially in basketball, and a good student. With his pleasing personality and his every ready ability for making friends, we predict a great future for him. Page Form-one 1MEMPHIS. I I NN. R.A. Finishing « » three years.

A good athlete, a good student, a Christian gentleman, a prince of a fellow—that is a description of Jim Blount. He is among the elect few who have had the mental and physical ability to finish college in three years. 1 till of energy and determination to succeed in whatever he undertakes, he has entered joyfully into every phase of student activity where he has become quite prominent. That he is one of the most popular students on the hill is evidenced by the many important positions that he has held in our student life through the choice of his classmates. Jim has taken a marked interest in Y. M. C. A. work and in his literary society, as shown by his election to the presidency of both organizations. He is also a speaker of unusual ability, winning second place in the Southern Intercollegiate Oratorical Contest—quite an honor both for Jim and for Purm3n. Passing to his athletic activities, we find that he has achieved one of the best football records ever made at Turman. Besides making the All-State team he is the proud possessor of the Hale trophy for the best player on the Purple Hurricane. Pape Forty-two § I.F-LAND Cl.lATI.AND BOMAR PORTSMOUTH. VA. ii.S.

One can readily detect his aristocracy, because he bears himself with the air of a lordly gentleman. "Cockic's" name will hardly be found among the intelligentsia of Furman with the destruc tion of erudition, but he lays claim to the biggest asset of mankind—an innumerable throng ol friends, genuine and sincere. Such a culmination can only be obtained through altruism. ' Cockic” is not in the least egotistical, but is always willing to render service, or speak a kind word to all. It would be preposterous to eulogize him too highly or to elevate him to an undeserved position: but "Cockic” is a man of many sterling qualities and cardinal virtues. He is sound • n judgment, alert in decision, assiduous in his efforts, individual in his personality, unique in expression, and infinite in his kindliness.

Glance considerately at the decoration above, gentle reader, which was designed not solely for aesthetic study nor to fill up space, but rather to portray to the world at large what one of Furman’s students. Hugh Boothe Bowden, looks like. We will not attempt to say what he looks like: we recommend the picture above. When Hugh drank the Pierian spring dry at several other cities, he began to drink from the one at Furman and Greenville. Apparently, he drank thirstily then, for it was recognized at the end of three years that he had completed enough work to launch out fin search of another spring, perhaps). Hugh was sunny and jovial in disposition, a good student, and pleasantly reserved in nature. Wherever Hugh was found, there also was found his sharp-tongue witticisms, which were put across effectively with the aid of bis special ’’Bowden-brand” smile. The eyes of Furman are upon you.

Although his athletic activity has been restricted to two years on the cinder paths, he has supported the teams wholeheartedly, helping inspire them from the land, where he Mows a noisy trumpet. He is a student of the first water, ranking well in all of his classes without hordering in the least on the hook-worm type. His main strength as a student apparently is French, as he has been a member of l.e Cerclc Francois for three years, enjoying the presidency of that august body during his senior year, lie is also a member of the Cloister, tin- most distinctive club on the campus, where he has proved to lie a most callable and valuable worker.

He is indeed quiet: but. nevertheless, he does much that very few know about. He has made many friends at Furman, all of whom will vouch for him as one who possesses a keen sense of duty, one who is a clean sportsman, and one who has high ideals. Henry is a well-rounded student. Outside the classroom, his outstanding work has been done on the basketball court, where his services have meant much to his Alma Mater. He was distinctly honored in his Junior year, in that he was elected captain of the basketball teaman office usually regarded as being open only to Seniors. He won that honor by his efficiency in the game and by his ability as a leader. Among the basketball fans of South Carolina he is extremely popular, and the players on opposing teams hold the highest regard for him. He has meant much to the boys with whom he has been associated: his influence has always been for the good. We feel reluctant as he leaves: but we feel that he will mean much to those with whom he later comes in contact. Throughout his career the eyes of his friends here will follow him: for he has succeeded in impressing indelibly the imprint of friendship on the hearts of many. 1 000 Form- seven ■5 Paul Di-Witt Bragg Greer, s. c.

Mr. Paul DeWitt Bragg, of Greer. S. C. Coming from the home of so many successful Furman men. is it anything unusual that he. too. should have been successful ? No for he would have been that, no matter where he came from. Bragg is one of the men in our class who plans to enter the ministry, and a more sincere Christian could not be found. While he has been at Furman he has already been preaching regularly in some of the nearby churches, and from all reports he has been unusually successful. In school he has taken an active part in the ministerial organizations of the campus, and has made his influence felt in each. In the classroom he has been outstanding in all of his work, especially in Greek. During his Senior year he was honored by being elected president of the Phi Kappa Delta, local Greek club, besides having the privilege of leading the Ministerial Band that year also. When it comes to a question of choosing between right and wrong and doing that which is right. Bragg is one of the strongest men among us. He has a great deal of strength in that regard, which is fortunate, for he will need a great deal in his life's work And because of his strength and his integrity, we know that he will render inestimable service in his chosen pro fession. if (!■ } Page Forty-eightl liiloM | liiati Literary Society (1. 2. 3.

Brissie is among those very gifted few who have acquired and experienced the blessings which follow silence. “Speech is silver, but silence is golden.” said the sage of old: and early in life Brissie began to long for things golden. Whether he has realized his desires for gold, we know not: but this one thing we do know, he has the virtue of thinking much and saying little. Brissie is very ambitious by nature, and with admiration have we watched him make his way through school unaided. ‘Tis said that "J. W.” plans to join the ranks of the many who enter either the ministry or the Seminary every year from Purman. Untold success should be his in his great calling, for when he does speak he has the power to sway multitudes. Witness the success he has already achieved in Literary Society, the haven of the orator. One vice he has: a never-ceasing love for the “guid weed”: but outside of that we think his congregations will find him devoted to his work. Page Portu-ntne  Chari.ns Hfywood Bush LIBERTY. S. C.

Well, we shall have to concede to Bush that he has accomplished what he set out to do. for he now signs his name with an ' A.15 “ attached. We have no idea that will inspire him to seek as many more as some people we know at the present time. “Red” will be satisfied to settle down and begin to find out what life is. His thoughts and hopes for a wife have taken him outside of life for a time, but we understand that he came back home one night and tore all the pictures off the wall before he could be brought out of the clouds. He seems to be as satisfied now as the man who found out that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. We hope he never regrets that he talked very, very much, too much at times. Some men do. but we’ll always believe Bush had a vision. Page■0 ' £ ft NHwpoki Nuws. Va. B.S.

Yes. folks, this is Michael Joseph Byrne, the pride of Newport News, perhaps better known as Mike or “Andy Gump, the choice of the people." Some even call him the budding poet that failed to bud. Mike has always been a great bull thrower, and the source of his greatest pleasure is in "jawing the rats." Mike is never without something to say. he has his opinion about everything that arises and whether right or wrong he is going to be heard. Mike may be a little rough in his manner and sometimes he may drive you a little beyond your patience, but we challenge you to find a boy that is better known than Mike. Everybody knows him and everybody likes him. When it comes to the final test you will find him a true friend—one that can be depended on He has always been a loyal believer in Furman, willing to give his all for his Alma Mater. Blessed with a splendid physique. Mike has taken quite a prominent part in Furman athletics. He has played end for the Purple Hurricane for four years, and in his senior year he has won a place both on the All-State and All-S. I. A. V teams. He is also a baseball and basketball player of note, and of course is quite a duck in the water since he was brought up on the coast. Page Fifiu-one £ r3 aThere is only one "Mom" Calhoun in the world (gaze on his likeness presented above), for no one else could be what he is. He hails from Greenwood, and has already made that city famous, Tor four years he has gone his happy way through college, and few have been the days in which he has not added another friend to his already lengthy list. We doubt if there ever was a man who loved a joke and a good hearty laugh as much as he docs: and. best of all. he possesses that happy faculty of bringing laughter and sunshine to others. Cheerful, helpful, sincere—these are his outstanding characteristics. While "Mont" has been at Turman he has been especially interested in Boy Scout work, and his friends among the boys of the city are legion. To lead and train boys in wholesome living is. we think, one of the highest services a man can render: and "Mont" has been doing that for a number of years. In doing it he has not only won friends for himself, but for Turman as well, for a boy is always a part of his college. "Mont" is also an excellent swimmer. He has been a regular on the swimming team ever since that sport was inaugurated at Turman, and was made the official examiner for the life saving test that is held in our pool every year. That he may be successful in continuing his work with boys, as well as any other he may take up. is the sincere wish of us all. Tape I'iflu-UVO  Saluda. S. C.

When one gyrates his optics over the above space, he should keep in mind that he beholds the likeness of a gentleman that Furman only has the distinction of calling her own. It is none other than Martin Ansel Carson, the lad from Saluda, who was for every-day use renamed "Scaley" after reaching the campus, and sometimes called "Kit." The face portrayed above serves as a splendid background for Ansel's pleasant smile which he shares with everyone. In addition to his pleasant smile he has also a kind word for all. Carson is a quiet, and unobtrusive, as well as a prodigious sort of chap. In the classroom he was proficient in his work, on the campus he was friendly with everyone, and on the gridiron he was equally as proficient as he was friendly. “Kid" played on the famous Purple Hurricane for three years, two as guard, and none there was in the state like unto him. for he carried off the state honors in his particular position on the team for two consecutive years. Carson's sunny, genial disposition, his kind words, and his famous smile will be missed on the campus just as Martin Ansel Carson, in toto. has been missed since completion of his college requirements at Christmas.

"Lon” has won the warm friendship of all his classmates by his quiet and unassuming manner while at Furman. There is not a person who knows “I.on" who does not like him. He is possessed with a fun-loving disposition, and at the same time is of a studious endeavor. One-half of his heart belongs to a certain unknown member of the fairer sex at Chicora. and the other half belongs to his numerous friends. He has a ready smile and a helping hand for all who need help. These sources of popularity are bound to pave the way for success in his life work. This blond head boy is known over the campus for the number of special delivery letters he has received. It is a known fact that he receives one almost every day. A man could not find a truer friend anywhere than "I.on." He is the kind of fellow that will not soon be forgotten. Furman hates to see you go.

Whether he put Lockhart on the map or whether Lockhart put him on the map. we will not endeavor to say: probably both will be heard front later. '■Bill" came to the Old Hill in the fall of '24 and settled in the historic old mansion by the name of "Montague." for which he always labored faithfully. Quiet, he was. except when he spoke up unobtrusively in class and elsewhere: and when he spoke it was well for the world to incline its cars to words of wisdom, for such characterized them. This lad from the Union city predominated in class work, having made the honor roll several times. Further evidence of his proficiency in class work may be brought out by the fact that he finished his academic work bv Christmas of his senior year. Beyond Clary's ability as a student, is found his athletic ability, which ranked very high. For three long years he had the strong potentiality of a star football player, and in his senior year that potentiality, which all the while was characterized by willingness and perseverance, evolved into a reality, at which time he was a central current in the famous Purple Wind that blew so terrifidy. May you develop more of the qualities of greatness that you have so thoroughly manifested while at Furman as you go further out into the paths and byways of life. Bill.

In fact, we received such a shock when we heard he had been hurt in a wreck on the way to a Georgia game that we haven't recovered from the anticipation of the loss yet. Bob is more or less of a philosophical nature, and persons and events in numbers above one. never made very much of an impression on him. Me liked to do things well, and his efforts at accuracy and completeness found themselves in good company with Mathematics and the sciences, though we find him as literary as scientific. He actually wrote a master essay on "Horses" once. As a critic for our classical taste, we would prefer him any time to H. I-. Mencken. We don't know what Bob intends to do. but we could imagine several things he would fit well into. He has so many usable traits that we could imagine him as a stern lawyer, or a quiet literary figure but hardly a politician. We are sure of one thing—he will do it well.

"Always worried, always loving, but never beloved.” In other words, he worried over the women he loved who never loved him. Now. gentle reader, we would not have you think that Tom was a weak-willed man. but there was in a woman's look something too captivating for Baric to resist. Out of sheer regard for him. the road to Spartanburg was finally paved. Unless Tom gets the worst end of an archery contest he is now engaged in. he is going to uphold the reputation of his family and enter the field of medicine. He used to allow Professor Riddle to tell him how hard it was. but back in January something came between the two. and since then he has limited his anticipations of the future to his own sphere of thought. Baric is a big man. and just one of those kind that look as if they need more sympathy than the dictionary affords them. He admits that the world treats a big man rougher because he is big. Tom's biggest adventure up to this time was a jaunt through Texas last summer on an educational quest, and strange we never hear him speak of the vast plains, and hardboiled women.

According to his own definition, he is a mixture of complexes, some inferior and some superior. To him every action led to a problem, and a solution of some kind. Therefore, intelligence, to whatever degree attained, caused him no little tension of mind. The vast ness of life puzzled him. but he consoled himself with science and philosophy as most worthy of study. He enjoyed all the others. He had an intense love for the arts, beauty, and friends, and an intense hatred for inconsideration. thieves, and baseness. He was always reasonable, but had a passive stubbornness as to the outcome of speculations. On the campus he earned the praise of some, and passed up the cynical taunts of others. (Cared very little whether he won praise or taunts, except that the former was inspiring.) He never became radical when extravagance was permissible, and believed that service to humanity was highest ideal. He enjoyed doctoring, including the dummies, friendship of all the students.

He is rather reserved and modest in his bearing, and for that reason is not so well known as some in our class: but those of us who arc fortunate enough to be numbered as his friends can attest his worthiness: to us he is a prince of a fellow. Pinch's greatest talent is drawing: in fact, he is an accomplished artist. Since he has been at Purman he has contributed many sketches to The Hornet, which have added materially to the attractiveness of that publication, and it is to him that THE BONHOMIES of both last year and this year owe much of their success, because of the fine art work contained in them. Perhaps Pinch will enter the field of cartooning, but we do not know that he will. If he does, he is assured of a great success, which is the sincere wish of his classmates. $ fr.

Besides the inspiration of friends to help him through life, he will be skyrocketed to the peak of success in some line by the winsome smile and some sort of faith of a little lass.

The proud possessor of a jolly disposition, for there never was a boy who loved fun and companionship more than Robert. Robert doesn't believe that a college-bred man is a four-year loaf composed alone of dough, for he is a consistent, hard working man. stands well in his classes (night and day), an excellent companion, and is loved by all. Though he has been handicapped in his college activities somewhat, owing to the fact that he lives off the campus, he has nevertheless shown beyond the doubt of anyone that he has the stuff that has for years characterized Furman men. Robert has mastered the field of commerce offered by Turman, and some day we hope to see him as one of the determining factors in some large corporation. Our wish for you. Robert, is that success be yours in whatever field you enter—business or matrimonial. N •J Blackvim e. s. c B.A. PliiloMMihian Literary Society (I. 2): V. M. C. A.

His chief distinguishing characteristic while at Furman has been his work with the Glee Club, the very one which has sung its way to championships of states, sections, and almost nationalities. But there are other things about the Gibsonian type of Purple manhood that deserve mention. It is said that the original rock of Gibraltar has lost sonic of its prestige since Harvey came into recognition. Not a steadier 'homo” ever graced a text-book with his eyes while a student under the regime of Dr. "Mac" or any of his worthy predecessors. As a friend, the hefty songster takes the cake and all the icing and filling. His principal handicap during his college career has been the fact that he has lived off the campus (not the G. W. C. campus) during his four-year period of higher educational and soforth training. Consequently he is not as well known as some of the other fellows—which is the misfortune of many students here. Opposites attract, but there are always exceptions to this rule, it seems.

In the classroom he has been a hard and honest worker: in athletics he has been outstanding, inasmuch as he has proved himself to be one of the best basketball guards in the state, besides his performances on the cinder path: and that he holds the confidence of the entire student body is shown by the fact that he is president of the senior class and the Pan Hellenic Council, and vice-president of the Student Council. In all lines of endeavor he has been a leader, and has been worthy of the confidence placed in him. There is one little thing about "Euchie" that wins for him many friends, and that is his smile. It would melt the heart of an iceberg. And ho has found it quite valuable in melting cold hearts, so we have been informed.

Anyway. Hugh's fame will live forever because of that one year. He is an accomplished pianist: one whose technique is rare, whose touch might be called finished, and whose repertoire is amazing. For one thing we especially envy him: viz. his ability to enter every class ten minutes late, and get away with it. And how! And another thing, some people are born fashion plates, but it is rare that they can finish college in three years.

Of an industrious temperament, this lad also shows that he has the stuff of manhood in him by working in a downtown drug store while he was not busily engaged in "shooting” the professors. Since he was interested in so many outside activities, his classroom work has not ranked with the elect literati, but he has succeeded in securing the required number of hours and quality credits that the Dean has set as the standard.

But he has not allowed his work to prevent him from being one of the strongest supporters on the campus of any team representing Furman. Wayne has been especially fond of mathematics at Furman (ask Professor Bowen!), has specialized in that subject, and expects to continue his study of it in graduate school.

Small towns, like Honca Path, must suffer when such men as Harper migrate from their limits. In fact, it has always occurred to me that they are simply living on their past until he gets back. Now as he goes back, he leaves Furman in a temperament expressed by. "we weep, for Harper is gone.” Lawrence is one of those people who believe in rejoicing today and not waiting until tomorrow when there may be nothing to rejoice over. And when there seemed little to be encouraged over, he always managed to create a situation to relieve the monotony. Just to let you in on a few secrets. Harper was always in popular demand for parties, the best dancer on the floor, the cynosure of all eyes at theatre parties, a good singer, and a tall, neatly-dressed gentleman. Now that you know of his social achievements, we must finish up the man by giving a sketch of his success as a student. He knew how to mix his work so as to do his school work, as proved by the fact that he has finished in four years.

We are glad that he is graduating with us for he has been a pleasant companion to us since he came into our ranks during our Senior year, and in later years we will be proud to call him a classmate of ours. Mark has had much success in his studies, especially in education. In that course of study he quickly came to the fore as one of the best students. Dr. Clark realized this, and as a result. Mark has had the honor of being student-assistant in education during his Senior year. Besides being a good student. Mark is a leader in campus activities, as is shown by the clubs to which he belongs and the offices he has held. We are expecting big things from Mark when he goes out into life. Although we do not know what field he will enter, we arc sure that he will be influential in any line of work. Certainly. Mark has the best wishes of every man in the class.

"Hello, there's a molecule.' said Buist: Hello, here's a gentleman." we said when first we saw this serenely composed fellow from "near Bishopville.” strolling leisurely about the Furman campus. "Herb” reminds us of a yacht peacefully cruising the placid waters of a tranquil inland sea: for he never worries, never hurries, and yet always arrives on time. When he first set foot on Dr. Mac's cultural compress, he adjusted his life to a speed which would bring him to graduation after four years. This speed was Median and Persian, neither Dr. Bradshaw nor Professor Earle being able to change it. He retained the same mien of contentment whether a lecture in psychology or a Rivoli melodrama absorbed his attention. "Herb" is one of these "one-girl" men proof positive of his character steadiness in these days of fickle flappers and shifty sheiks. As long as we can remember, a certain little blonde of his own community has held a first and only mortgage on his heart. He stayed here 84 7 days: he wrote blonde in question 84 7 letters. We asked him what he intended to do in life. "Get married.” he responded. "How will you support her?" we wanted to know "That's my business.” he replied. Whatever it is he has in mind we believe his consistency will get him there at the moment of psychology, as it were. Page Severn u-eightWilliam Augustus Hough OlESTKRFlIU.D. S.

Ready of wit and a born fashion plate, he is sure to be the center of any group of boys wherever they may gather. He will always be remembered at Furman for his prize possession, one of those "I do not choose to run” outfits that arc the secret desire of every collegiate. Hough is versatile; if you doubt it. inquire of his roommate. "Reedy” Rivers. ‘Tis said that he can do anything, and that covers a lot of territory: but he has never been known to fail at anything he has attempted since he has been at Furman. Truly, he is one of those persons who have achieved greatness, for it certainly was not thrust upon him. Hough has never made any indication of what he plans to do after graduation, but that has never been the cause of alarm on our part We know that he can succeed at almost any thing, and we are expecting to hear of great accomplishments by him before many reunions of our class have come about.

Coming to us from North Greenville Academy, he has succeeded in eluding the wiles of l)r. Bradshaw and Professor Harle. and has made quite a record for himself in his classes 3S well as on the Glee Club. Harold takes his own good time to do things, but it can never be said that what he did was not well done. He is the kind of boy on whom you can depend at all times to help you in your troubles. Sincere, willing, and resourceful, he is a true friend and has bound himself to the hearts of many students on the hill during the four years he has spent at the feet of the thirty-four eminent solons of the faculty. The six cylinders of Hudson's super-motor--hearing, sight taste, intellect, feeling, and love—all functioned smoothly in their rhythmic palpitations until a certain Greenville lassie got control of his steering wheel. Alas’ Since then we have seen better running motors, but never worse! Love and reason do not mix. and since Harold has been controlled from the heart by the hand of this same little lassie he has been unable to definitely steer himself into a future profession. However, the first throes of love do not last forever and some day reason will control his course—then, and only then, will Hudson perform as Hudsons should.

Many a day will pass before we will forget "Miller's” inimitable wit. Me has not confined himself to provoking merriment, however, but has taken an active part in many of the campus activities. He is one of the flashiest third basemen that has ever graced the Furman diamond. The fact that he was made a member of the “Glee Club Quartet" his last year is proof enough of his singing ability. During "Miller's” stay here. Furman has had the honor of representing the South twice in the National Glee Club contest in New York, and "Miller" accompanied the club both times. If we are any judges at all of singing prowess, then "Miller" certainly deserved these trips, for he has worked hard and faithfully to raise the prestige of Furman. The lure of baseball prevented his making the state trips, and this loss to the club is to be regretted by the music-loving people of South Carolina. "Miller" has chosen professional baseball for his life's work, and by noticing the record he has made at Furman, we predict for him nothing but the greatest of success in the world's greatest pastime. ft 71 Jsl Page Eighty-one STI-HDMAN. s. c R.A.

And that only adds to his austerity! Percy’s diploma is evidence of his success in his knowledge chase. While he has been at Furman he has been prominent among those who feel the high calling of religious work: and that he will render a great service in his chosen field is beyond question. He is indeed a friend to all. and a sincere Christian. No one has ever found him unwilling to render any help of any nature that has been asked of him and that, as wc see it. is the test of greatness. He has diligently sought for truth in his books, and even sweated blood over that difficult language of the Greeks, and now his perseverance is being rewarded His ability to stick to a task, no matter how hard or disagreeable it was. has been the deciding factor in his success on many occasions. In fact, he has more "stick to-it-iveness" than anybody we know. Such characteristics. coupled with his great versatility, is bound to bring him success in life.

George has been so intimately related to every phase of college activity that we predict that some day he will be looking through a monocle and directing (with the other eye) a great university. In fact, we don't see how the President can get along next year without him. "Let George do it” is a popular slogan in the administrative department. Outside of the fact that he thought the infirmary was a boarding house, we never found any flaw in his business ability. Jeffers has not only been a big man in this department, but also in the religious life of the campus and the city of Greenville. He put his business ability into his religious activities and is regarded as an excellent organizer. As for his school work. Jeffers never allowed it to suffer, but he did not do as well as he was capable, for he believed that other things were as important as classes. We fear that George has been too busy to give the time deserved to his social life, but we haven’t made any detective investigation, and therefore we won't be surprised if he falls victim to "arrow pectoris" sometime.

Since he has been at Furman, he has added to his excellent record, and has attracted quite a few friends to him. The angelic expression, however, only serves as a mask to hide the polished and sophisticated gentleman beneath. "Bill" always has a smile and a cheerful word for all with whom he comes in contact. His modest and unassuming nature makes friends for him wherever he goes. His cleanliness in personal habits makes him an example of neatness for all the campus. The highest tribute that can be paid to any man is so have it said of him that he is a true friend. "Bill” is as true as steel, and once he makes a friend, nothing can shake his trust in that friend. Anything that he can do which will be of service to that friend, he docs not hesitate to do. He has the essential qualities of a noble character reliability, honesty, service, and sacrifice. His fundamental life principles arc based on a profound love for and trust in his fellow man. These worthy characteristics will enable any man to ride with case the waves on the sea of time.

Lackey came to us from the Connie Maxwell Orphanage, where he had distinguished himself by leading the high school for four years. With such a reputation on his hands, it might be thought that something disastrous would have happened to him at Furman; but nothing at all like that has happened. On the other hand. Prscton has made a name for himself at college, and bids fair to have unusual success in life. Besides being a good student. Lackey has shown rare business ability while he has been with us by working his way through school. That one should be able to do that, and at the same time keep up with his class, is unusual. But Lackey is used to doing the unusual. In spite of the fact that most educators advise a five-year course at college for those who would work their way. he has demonstrated the proverb that what a man desires to do. he will do. Our heartiest congratulations arc extended to him for his success. Preston says he is going to enter the business world, but has not decided definitely just what field he will engage in.

The same may be said of his activity on the diamond. ‘ Bunk" is the type of athlete that puts athletics on a higher plane. He has taken part in many activities on the campus and in each capacity has served well. The success he attained this year in football has meant much to "Bunk." but we dare say that it lias meant more to his host of admirers in North and South Carolina Wherever the Purple Hurricane has played. "Bunk' lias made friends. The position which he won on the All State team this year was one which he deserved and was well earned. “Bunk's" magnetic smile makes him friends—it has helped to make our campus more cheerful and other campuses more cheerful, too: it will be missed on the hill next year.

Cross Country Volunteer Band Club (2. 3); Charlie, as he is called by all who know him. is a fellow who commands the greatest respect of his friends. We have learned to love him because of the many sterling characteristics which he has acquired. He is a Christian gentleman and stands always for what is right—his example has been an influence for good during his three years on the campus. The Christian service he has rendered on the campus along with the service he has given the Boy Scouts and his church will continue to bear fruit for a long time. ■'Charlie's” activity has not been confined to Christian service alone but lie has done admirable work in the classroom. He has been one of the outstanding men on the track team and we proudly boast of one of the best runners in the state. The fact that "Charlie ' is doing the usual four years' work in three speaks for his ability as a student. His work on the varsity debating team this year has been a credit to him and to his Alma Mater. We feel that as "Charlie" goes into his profession he will bring glory to Furman. Those of us who have known him feel that we have been benefited because of our association with him.

His open and frank manner, his jovial disposition, and his untiring conservatism make him admired and esteemed highly by the entire student body as well as the faculty. Leary has little time for "bull" conferences or flippant indulgences of any kind, due to the fact that he arises at two A M. and works until time for class: by this means he pays his way through college. Despite this, he has made second honor: our hats off to any student with such tenacity. Leary is a “hard-hitter." undertaking all his work and play with a grim determination. With this continues! lack of aversion for work, both mental and physical, success must be his in after life. While at Furman. Leary has proved his worth as a Christian gentleman of the highest type with lofty ideals and noble aspirations. He realizes that deeds and not words count: therefore, he "gives few his tongue, but many his ear." His sterling character, steadfastness of purpose, and unfaltering integrity cause him to stand forth as one of the most efficient students on the campus.

Lido sounds like bad English at first, but il you stop long enough to look again, and then ask a few questions, you will become interested in one of the finest characters you ever knew. Then, you will want to sec him. and after you have seen him. you will want to know him. Once you have this desire, it's not hard to find in Ulmer the making of a true friend. I.idc came from Benncttsville. and they tell us that anything may happen there. For this and other reasons. Lide decided that he had rather go to school all last summer and finish in three years rather than bask in the balmy (and hotter) sunshine of the famous-for-beautiful girls town. In spite of his romantic history. Ulmer has put first things first in school. He has ranked high among the literati, and when lie got in the right atmosphere, short stories and one-act plays did verily flow off his pen-point. His features indicate a classical mind, and his tastes correspond. Combined with this, he has fine manners and a pleasing social appearance which make an ideal mixture of intellect and personality.0 Paul came to Furman in September of 1924. and said he wanted a college education. He immediately set about acquiring the said education, and so successful has he been that he is one of the six who finished their work at the end of the first term of their Senior year. We often wonder how he did it. for so far as studying is concerned, he has never been caught in the act. So wc conclude that his success is due to his great ability in that difficult course known as "legology." Be that as it may. wc have it from no less an authority than Dean Daniel, himself. that Paul had the required sixty-one hours at Christmas: believe it or not’ On the campus. Paul s chief business has appeared to be that of enjoying life. Happy-go-lucky as he is. of us all he can get the most humor out of any situation. And various have been the roles that he has played while at Furman. From student to carpenter, with all the intermediate stages, has been the range of his activities, and in all he has succeeded. Probably it is his versatility that has proved his worth among us. We do not know what Paul is planning to do in life We hope, though that the success that has been his at Furman will continue to be with him. 0- Pape Ninety-Hot"R.

He is a Greenville boy and although living off the campus has taken an active part in university life. “R. L." doesn't believe that one comes to college just for a good time. He has his pleasures: but at the same time, he is a consistent worker, standing well in all his classes. History and music seem to be his hobbies. He enjoys reading of the past, never forgetting what he has read. If you want to know anything about the Romans or what year the War of Roses began, just ask "R. I. " Music, too. has its place in his activity, for he enjoys playing both the piano and pipe organ—no wonder he enjoys it. he does it so well. "R. L." is what one calls a hustler.

He has found time for participation in many phases of college activities without overemphasizing any. I rom the very start he has had the Furman spirit and has always given a spirited cheer for Furman whether she was winning or losing. He has worked his four years on the hill, being a very efficient agent in "billet-doux" and ice cream, besides this, he is an excellent student. He is one of the few who has attempted to understand the "hyperbolic functions" of Professor Harle's "Sines and Cosines." Then too. he occupies a strategic position on Dr. Clark's famous "curve."

His genial disposition has won many friends for him on the Furman campus and elsewhere, and its continuance will help him smooth life's highway as he makes the momentous journey.

Mitchell is a well-rounded student, ranking high in classroom work. This docs not come as the result of useless time spent in poring over dusty tomes, but is caused by his voluminous verbosity in addressing the gentlemen of the faculty. This method he highly recommends to others who may follow him in the tortuous road that leads to the coveted diploma. Senior writeups in college annuals are usually made up of trite well-wishings to the departing student mingled with prophesies of future greatness, but we feel that "Pug" is the exception in having a legitimate right to both.

He was the last boy to enter Furman with knee trousers on. Since we have known him four years we have come to the conclusion that it was a wily trick of his to avoid some of tl»e hardships freshmen often meet. At any rate. "Mouse" worked into the scheme of things with a skill unequaled for his age. and had such powers of self-adaption that he soon was well on the road to fame as a good student, a keen newspaperman, a cunning legger. and a social hound. While Moore never let his studies interfere with his college activities, he was always dependable, and in most cases reliable, except when he had just received a letter from Rock Hill. Moore is a man who works with the aim of accomplishing and neglects the possibilities of being praised. In fact, when he becomes philosophical, it is not a matter of whether he is praised or blamed: he says worth will come to light. Dashing, daring, sometimes vociferous—but never offside—that’s Moore.Adcliiliian Literary Society (I, 2): V. , |. C. A.

The class of nineteen twenty-eight is glad to welcome Hiram as one of its graduates. He was supposed to finish his college career at Furman one year ago. but elected to spend a year at the College of Charleston Medical School before acquiring the sheepskin from Furman. We knew Hiram for many fine qualities of character, but he stood out as a student par excellence in the science department. He also found plenty of time to devote to a development of his musical talents, being a valuable member of Mr. Miller's Glee Club, a member of a collegiate orchestra, and a mean tooter of a saxophone in the Furman band. Hiram possessed the rare quality of being able to combine scholastic endeavor with social attainment. On the dance floor he could be found gracefully gliding over the slippery floor: and what girl was there who did not experience a thrill when he elected her as his partner (by the way. her name was usually Nellie). When he docs complete his medical preparation, we predict for him a successful career as a doctor. A n Page One Hundred Two t- pi c ri r t P A, I C I ' Hartsvillf. s. C. B.S.

This tall, good-natured "Willie." gifted with an ever-ready smile and friendly word for everyone, comes to us from Hartsville. His distinction of being the tallest man in the class is commensurate with his "high" standing in the hearts of all who know him as one to be relied upon at all times, and his willingness to aid his fellow students whenever called upon.

Those of us who know him best have found him to be a true friend, an ambitious student, a loyal Furman man. a sterling gentleman. John Rogers is a decided blonde, and since he is one of the preferred type (according to Anita Loos) of our sex. it might be supposed that he would have to fight the dear things off with a stick, especially when we consider his attractive curls. But somehow the news has filtered out that he is a bit shy. However, there is no use worrying: his day will come, and we hope we shall be there to witness the happy event.

There is no telling where the little Perry lad acquired this little sobriquet, but it has stuck to him all through his college career and is apt to distinguish him in days to come. Doubtless there arc scores of students on the campus that could not tell you his real name—if he really does have one. Mr. Perry's most outstanding accomplishments here have been in the field of athletics. The forward wall of the famed Purple Hurricane was indebted to this little child for a large portion of its strength. He played "those footballs" with energy, and in his senior year received an almost unanimous vote for all-state guard Yes. John Morton was really a big man on Furman's championship Hurricanes, in his day Although "Bull" is said to be slightly better looking than Brother Andrew Byrne, he does not allow this natural attraction he has for the lassies to interfere with his work so very much. Yet. this striking Turmanite is in demand at the most successful of social functions. "Bull" possesses a very congenial spirit, as any freshman will inform you. and is easy to get along with.

Furman has had the honor of claiming Harold Phillips, “the Pride of Sumter.” as one of her sons for four years: and in those four years he has made a place for himself in our school and in our hearts that no one else under the sun could fill. Always happy, always sincere, always true—is it any wonder that we admire him? And with all his characteristics, his greatest is his vast amount of that invaluable trait commonly known as common sense. Quickthinking. sound of reason, and extremely practical as he is. his opinions on any subject arc bound to have weight. But by that we would not have you believe that he is either solemn or austere: contrarily. he has the happy faculty of always seeing things in their true proportion: and if there is the much talked of "brighter side" to be found in any situation. Harold is sure to find it. In the old home town Harold had the reputation of being a "lady killer.” and since he has been in college he has not allowed his abilities along that line to diminish to any great extent. Many are the hearts of the fair sex in Greenville which have skipped a beat or two when he was somewhere around. Dame Rumor has it that at present a certain lass in the environs of Chicora College is the recipient of his affections. We extend our heartiest felicitations to that fortunate young lady!

He loves a life of ease, and usually gets what he wants. He is a fine and likeable fellow, and has made many friends here. Rather reserved, he is not seen very often, but these very traits will bring him success when he has left us. LcRoy has chosen law for his life's work. He is getting his B.A. degree this year and is going to continue his work for the LL.B. degree. Not in the least ostentatious, he has made his college career a distinct success, and we believe he will do as well in his chosen profession. He is the kind of man whom one admires and respects. and he has but to follow his ideals to make the world sit up and take notice of him.

John Pierce Sowell, better known to his fellow students as Reverend.” hails from the great metropolis. Tradesville. $. C. He has been with us for only two years, having completed the first two years of his blazing college career at Wingate Junior College. These two years at Furman, however, have allowed him sufficient time to accumulate a great number of friends, both among the students and among the fair residents of Greenville. ''Reverend” has not accumulated such a large number of honors during his stay at Furman. But we contend that he has not received what is rightfully due him. He is a very apt student of Greek (ask Dr. Murray), and we have sufficient reason to believe that he would some day develop into a great scholar had he not severed all relations with that subject. He also seems to have something of a poetic gift However, he composes only in the strictest seclusion, and one must approach with gentle steps his secret haunts if he would hear the smooth flow of verse from this poetic genius. And who has not heard “Reverend s” mellow tenor voice sending its sonorous echoes through the ever quiet halls of Montague? Readers, again we say that he did not get what was due him. After all. it is not the best policy to commit murder. Besides, these peculiar talents may be of the greatest value to "Reverend" when he goes back to the "old home town" with the idea of putting it on the map.

As Egypt boasts of the unique monumental Sphinxes in her arid deserts, just so Furman University lays claim to a Spinks. Spinks has clearly proven the fact that "you can't keep a good man down." He has been a quiet and inconspicuous student who has attempted to do his work honestly and well. Spinks has demonstrated the "go get it" all along: with endurance, foresight. strength, and skill, he has done honor to himself. When he goes about his work in his quiet pleasing manner, everyone has the assurance that the work will be done properly. He saw—yes. even as we all did—that before u there was indeed a task, and this task he conquered, and in so doing he left behind an enviable record.

Whatever he attempts he does well, and we cannot sec anything but success in his future vocation. "Charlie" is not especially famous for his college activities, although he has some he may well be proud of: but he is known by his quiet and well-mannered actions. He is a good friend and a true one to those who know him best. He always has a ready smile, and a word of cheer for his acquaintances. The class of '28 is proud to claim "Charlie" as a member, and it is with regret that Furman gives him up. We do not hesitate to prophesy that he will succeed, and we wish him the best of luck in whatever walk of life he may enter. J'aae One Hundred Twenty-four Jami-s Crawford Tribblf: Cassville. Ga.

Ichabod-likc individual copped a degree at Mars Hill Junior College and came to Furman in further pursuit of elusive knowledge. He is a Georgian by rcsi donee and characteristics of the "Georgia Cracker" have at times come to the surface of his personality during his two years at Furman. His interests during his stay on "McGlothlin's Knowledge Knoll" have been three: tennis, literature, and jokes. In the racquet game, his success has been variable; Browning and Shakespeare were his favorites in the literary field: and when it comes to making puns his friends say that there's none so good as "Trib." "Trib’s" cardinal virtue, perhaps, is his ambition which never seems to lapse. If the bullet of his progress soars as high as he has aimed it the world will be forced to acclaim him a success. His industry and ambition earned hint second honor in Furman scholastic fields. They do say. too. that "Trib" quotes a wicked poem when there's a girl in the ease. He loves his "Georgia Peaches” and he loves bis famous poems, preferably the former. Tribble intends to impart the knowledge he has stored up to members of the coming school generation.

Paul came to Furman in the fall of 1923. and was a Sophomore when the rest of us were Freshmen. But after a year's association with the class of '28. he perceived what a great honor it would be for him to graduate with us. so he dropped out of school a year. And right glad we are to have him! Quiet and unassuming in manner, placing friendliness as the greatest of the virtues, and always ready to lend a helping hand, he has won the admiration and respect of every man of us. During the year that "Rusty"—the name that he is more used to than any other—was out of school, he was engaged in the great work of teaching: and so impressed was he by the opportunities of service which that field offers that he has decided to make teaching his life's profession. At Furman he has been much interested in the activities of the Hducation Club being president of it for one term, and has specialized in the education courses, thus fitting him self in an adequate way for his chosen work. Because of his cheerful disposition and depend ability, we are expecting that unusual success will be his. At least, that is our fondest wish. Like so many of the rest of us. Paul is greatly enamored with one of the fair sex. For a long time we wondered why he made frequent trips to Greenwood, until one day he betrayed himself by his keen interest in l ander College.

And who is there among the five hundred Furman students who would not welcome the salutation: ' Are you ‘Buckie’s’ friend?"

However, lie has succeeded in overcoming this handicap and has done a good work at Turman. It hasn't been all work; from his basketball record we judge that he plays well. There are many adjectives that would describe “Bum." but to say that he is wholesome characterizes him in one word. That he has ability is proved by the fact that he served as business manager of the football team this year. His scholastic work has been well done. "Bum’s” personality is rare. He is quiet yet he gets so far ahead of those who make so much noise. The boys on the hill love him and his place will be hard to fill. Dr. Clark will verify the statement that “Bum" is a great drawing card for any co-ed school.

We have heard Pope speak little but front his actions we have learned much. In hint you will find the innate culture and refinement of a gentleman, commendable ambition and happy disposition. He is full of "pep"—this has been clearly demonstrated to us during the last two years. Though small in size and quiet in manner he can make noise that will bring "pep" from the entire student body. The great thing about Pope is that he knows when to "blow his horn.” Pope s influence at Purman has been felt: it has been uplifting and of the highest caliber There will never be one who is more loyal to Purman and the ideals which she endeavors to cultivate. Those who have been privileged to associate with him arc fortunate. May he continue in his associations to make them feel his influence. But remember there arc other things out standing in this chap. Without sacrificing any of his sterling characteristics we find Pope en joying social activities, taking part in athletics, and the club life of the campus. It all goes to show that he is well-rounded. It is easy to see why he means so much to Purman. “Pride of his fellow men. ft  SENIOR CLASS HISTORY .vr 5 The history of .1 college class includes every item which has interest or importance in connection with that class's life and growth. Some writers assert, as docs Emerson, that the history of any people may be resolved into the biographies of a few great men: but this statement may hardly be applied to this class history, for all members have contributed materially toward making a historical document. On looking over the records of the past four years, we arc astounded at the rapidity with which this eventful time has flown: it seems almost incredible that so many notable achievements could have been attained in this quartet of years. The hordes of new men who came to Furman in the fall of 1924 did not come with the sole purpose of seeking a delight in the absurdity of living, for the new influx included potentialities who soon, even though "rats." contributed valuably toward increasing the fame of Furman. Coach Norman’s "awful rats" experienced little difficulty in administering crushing defeats to the "big boys" who were under the guidance of Coach Laval. In fact, this "rat" football team literally mopped up with their opponents on every occasion. The migration of these new men to Furman also meant an increased interest in scholastic and honorary club affairs. One fact of significance to In- remembered and recounted in this short class history is that these first year prognostications of future accomplishments were not meaningless. The presence of our class at the university has not only added prestige to Furman's standard, but has also done its part in causing the officials to brand us as one of the best classes of the last decade. During the Sophomore year, we learned to look at life's problems more seriously, although our inflated ego and superciliousness sent us harassingly toward the Freshmen with revengeful intentions, and caused us to look askance at the Juniors and Seniors with poignant cynicism. However, the many experiences of the year had a tendency to cause us to curb the unduly emphasized ego. and we. therefore, emerged as Juniors with the thought that after all. we knew frightfully little. Indulging in outside activities, and poring occasionally over some lengthy assignment of a professor, wc increased in power and knowledge during our Junior year: and like the one hundred other classes have done, wc classically branded this period as jolly. The word Senior meant much to our prosaic souls: wc added dignity and poise to our appearance, especially so by the acquisition of derbies, and we happily offered advice to underclassmen. However, such trivial matters were not our sole interest. Some of the men fostered a movement that led to the faculty's and trustees' sanction of reestablishing Greek letter fraternities: others added honor to themselves and to the university by acquitting themselves well on the gridiron basketball court, baseball diamond, and track: others led in arousing interest in departmental clubs, and some few gave remarkable demonstrations of the famous Furman spirit by simply cheering the work of the leaders and doers. Without deviation from fact, we can safely say that our class has added more to the athletic fame of Furman than has any other single class. And yet. not given to boasting, we simply claim that our part in creating a four-year history of significance for our Alma Mater has not been all that we would have liked. But concurring with the philosophy of Robert Browning, wc say: 'What ufe aspired to be and user? not. comforts us." —Historian.

In a very short time we realized that there were duties to perform besides those in the classroom, and that professors were not the only instigators of drill. For one year we held the title “wise fools" only to find at the end of our second milestone that there were others wiser than we.

About one-fourth of the Glee Club personnel is made up of Juniors, and for the last three years we have contributed to the brilliant success which it has made. We are represented, in no small number, in the literary society halls, a few of our number taking active parts in intersociety contests. Several have shown marked ability in declaiming and public speaking, and are known in the circles of intercollegiate debating and oratory. In every field of sport we contribute outstanding material, but our contributions are more distinguished on the gridiron and cinder path than in any other phases of athletics. Our envious record on the gridiron is due in part to such stars as Capps. Coble. Cox. Washington. Davis, and "happy though married" Sam Lemmond. who was All-State tackle this past season and who is captain-elect of the Purple Hurricane for the coming season. Bristow. Garrison. Powell, and Vincent are our Nurmis on the cinder path. Five Juniors are on the baseball team, two on the basketball squad, and three take active parts on the tennis team. Our creed has been clearly expressed by the great English poet. Fenny son: ‘"Our purpose holds. To sail beyond the sunset and the baths Of all the western stars until we die.” Yes. our purpose holds to sail beyond the seas and the glowing sunsets, and after one more year we hope to leave the quiet harbor and then we will find more stormy seas, yet we will keep that gleaming scroll upon which our deeds are written as a glittering star shining undimmed by a watchful world. —Historian.

The ship then immediately shoved off with a determination to find its rightful place upon the splashing Sophomore seas. During the cruise, piracy loomed up within the ranks, but stern captaincy had the crew back in order. Activities of the class were guided successfully by a competent staff of officers who always directed their able administration toward the best. J. Kenneth Cass as president: Alex Herring as vice-president: Fred Wood as secretary, and Clyde Marling as treasurer, bent all their efforts for upholding the class spirit at all times. The Purple Hurricane drew quite a number from the Sophomore ranks: Cass. Clary. Smith, Engclberg. Bull, and Bonnette represented an array of good material. On the basketball team. Huff was high scorer of the season. Smith and Basley also entered varsity ranks successfully. Huff. Williams. Cass. Smith. Osteen. Bonnette. Lackey, and Elrod made their names prominent as baseball men. while on the track team, other Sophomores were outstanding. In other activities there is also a goodly number of Sophomores. In the Glee Club. Band, literary societies, religious and academic organizations, our members always held a prominent place. The Sophomore class has shown itself in all ways to be a well-rounded class, entering and holding successfully active parts in every phase of college activity. —Historian.

From the historic Hudson, from the mighty Mississippi, from the snow-dad Rockies, and from where the waves beat threateningly against the shore. They came to the ■‘Mountain City” like a band of treasure seekers, but they came in search of something more precious than the gold of the Klondike or the rubies of mystic India—knowledge. Here, upon the sacred hill where others who have written their records on the scroll of time received their learning, inspirations, and ideals; their “Dear Mother” took them in hand. Under her delicate touch these green products of nature, unversed in the mysteries of life, began to assume the polish of the cul tured. and under her leadership they began the journey through the paths of wisdom. In academic work the Freshmen have stood high and in other activities they have shown rare skill. The Glee Club has been benefited by quite a few of their excellent voices, and the Y. M. C. A. has been loyally supported by them. Likewise, the band, which has played our teams to victory so often, has in its personnel ten Freshmen. In athletics they have established an enviable reputation. Although they were defeated on various occasions they went down with flying colors because they did their best. They played the game as only Furman teams can play. And now the year is drawing to a close. Soon the Freshman insignia will be lifted from the "domes” which are beginning to be filled with wisdom becoming to the so-called “all-wise” Sophomore. They will be fugitive rats” no longer but will be what they thought they were at the beginning of the year—the "Who's Who” of Furman. May the ending be as successful as the beginning. —Historian. 0 $ Pag .' One Hundred Sixiy-eiyhl LAW SCHOOL P. C. Fant C. F. Davis S. C. Mathews E. J. Dennis P. M.

Furman is the third school to be chosen by Frank in his pursuit for legal knowledge. The University of South Carolina and the University of Florida have both been graced by this young man. yet he came to Furman when he found out it was the only place. Frank's popularity among the students is amply shown by his high offices in the Law School. He is found a friend of everyone, and all enjoy listening to his pithy comments on every subject.

It is said that the first chapter was organized in the institution in 1858 under the presidency of Dr. James C Furman, the first president of the institution after it reached collegiate grade. In the course of the years three others were admitted, and all had useful and honorable history while here. In the 90’s a wave of opposition to fraternities swept over South Carolina, causing the dissolution of all fraternities in all the colleges of the state, and leading the legislature to forbid by legal enactment the existence of fraternities in state-supported institutions. Naturally this led to their abolition by the Board of Trustees of Furman in 1898. They had existed in Furman for forty years under the presidencies of Dr. James C. Furman and Dr. Charles Manly. Gradually they were restored in the other denominational colleges of tin-state and then re-admitted by act of the legislature to the state colleges in January. 1927. During the thirty years of their absence from Furman they had been greatly improved and had entered practically all the collegiate institutions of the country. Many alumni and friends of Furman, as well as the great majority of the student body, earnestly desired their re-admission to Furman. Accordingly, the faculty recommended to the Board of Trustees at its May meeting. 1927. that permission be given for the reestablishment of fraternities. Permission was granted and under that permission one of the old fraternities was reestablished, namely the Kappa Alpha. Other groups of students formed clubs in the hope that they might eventually secure chapters of other fraternities. These various organizations were all put under strict control of the faculty, and all sub-rosas of every kind, which had from time to time been on the campus, were completely abolished. This was the situation when the Baptist State Convention at its meeting in Columbia in December. 1927. passed a resolution "requiring" the faculty and trustees to abolish fraternities at Furman. On his return to the campus the President stated to the student body that faculty and students were amenable directly to the Board of Trustees and that until the trustees acted the situation should be maintained in siatu quo. No other fraternities should be admitted to the campus until the situation was cleared up. but the Kappa Alpha and the clubs could go on functioning as student organizations. At the next meeting of the Board of Trustees, which was held April 20. 1928. a committee was appointed to take the situation under consideration and report back to the Board at its November meeting with recommendations. This, in briefest outline, is the status of the fraternity situation on the Furman campus at the present time. Page Tufo Hundred Sixty-fiveJ. Q. Mahaffey. Jr. President Faculty Member Prop. I.. S.
