BEECHER STRAIN FRANCES LANCASTER JOHNNIE JOHNS WINNIE HIXSON Co-fcwmw meteen-1, ut m an nLveuiti Hundred and Forty-Threean « c « If someone should oslc us what the year at Furman has meant to us. we should be silent, for there is too much to answer, in a word, or on a printed page. For when, in September, a city in Russia was falling, and there were hushed whispers of "Defeat! Defeat!", the Furman students returned to the campus dazed, wondering what their part was to be in the conflict, and what college could do to prepare them for that part. And the dosses, the classes seemed cloistered, and the subjects futile and obsolete. The student body began to work with their eyes on the textbooks and their thoughts on the headlines. Then, everyone wondered if there was a place for the academic world in a world at war. « c « But Furman has met the challenge. The faculty and the administration recognized the duties of a college in preparing young people for war. By installing emergency courses in Math and Physics, radio, ana biology, they offered the students opportunities to better serve their country by being skilled in needed professions. A physical education program that made the boys conscious of new muscles and the novelty of learning muscular skills and coordinations was participated in by every boy in the school. The famed obstacle course gave them more than a hint of actual army endurance requirements. But in making all of these changes the faculty did not lessen the value of a degree. They merely adhered more closely to Aristotle's concept of an educated man: "A sound mind in a sound body." c « « And now the year has ended and the war goes on. But the spirit has changed and the doubts have vanished. For men are marching out from Furman prepared, prepared to meet any demands that may be placed on them. And when the final dot, dot, dot, dash sounds from across the seas, and the bell in the tower once more rings out Victory, then Furman shall have cause to be proud of the soldiers that she has prepared and who will come marching home to make a better peace. And equally proud she will be of the Furman girls who have waited for their Furman men and who in their more peaceful ways have aided and inspired that Victory.. ..

Certain events from this swiftly moving year will long remain in the minds of Furman students. . . . Who will soon forget—an arduous period of registration with puzzled, perplexed freshmen and bland, nonchalant upperclassmen ... the girls in colorful plaids and skirts who moved into Montague Hall, an unprecedented event . . . lithe, handsome glider pilots who "glided" into McGee Hall ... a condemned football team which nevertheless played winning football ... a renovated "Hornet” which won plaudits of both students ond critics . . . Rat Day, the last reminder of the old days when rats were rats, not inflated egotists . . . pain-wracked muscles from Rhys. Ed. . . . girls taking calisthenics . . . treasured house parties ... the classic refrain: "What reserve are you in?" ... the innumerable Clemson "mites" and the Zooites, an old sight ... the pathetic lack of school spirit . . . knitting in chapel . . . the girl breaks—when the girls really got revenge . . . adding pounds at "the shack" . . . card and bridge games, frat meets, holidays, practical jokes, religious events. They all project themselves forward vividly as we reminisce ... at last, inevitable, solemn commencement . . . The end.Mr. and Mrs. Smith « « « Because of their devotins the best years of their lives to Furman, because of their interest in each student, because of their never-failing cooperation, because of their courage, tenacity, and sense of humor, and because of their permanent positions in our hearts, we gratefully dedicate to ''Sarge” and Mrs. Smith the 1943 '‘Bonhomie.” 10 IIWith the Administration "Courage, the highest gift, that scorns to bend To mean devices for a sordid end. Courage—an independent spark from Heaven's bright throne. By which the soul stands raised, triumphant, high alone . . . Courage, the rpighty attribute of powers above. By which those great in war, are great in love. The spring of all brave acts is seated here. As falsehoods draws their sordid birth from fear." —Farquhar. Be of good courage, students of 1943, and go forward with wisdom and strength that you may bear your share in helping to establish a lasting peace. May you carry in your hearts the teachings and spirit of Christ and spread these abroad in a suffering world. JOHN L. PLYLER, President. 12 JOHN LANEY PLYLER, President 13VIRGINIA THOMAS.

DR. GILPATRICK Seniors Most Popular Professor 19 20 Senior Class The Class of '43 goes out into the world with at least the immediate future planned for them. Having struggled through four years of higher education, this year's crop of seniors have their applications for positions postponed for the duration, as questionnaires and general classifications substitute. At first the gentlemen of F. U. seemed to be the only ones involved, choosing or being chosen by the Army, Navy or Marines. Now that Johnny has gone marching off, however, Mary is eyeing trim uniforms of auxiliary service or contemplating life on the farm or in the factory. In spite of the news from over the pond, life kept going on both campuses. Occasionally the order was "close ranks" to fill gaps left by service-bound fellows, but still came the political campaigning of election days, routine class existence painfully enlivened by the inevitable parallels, senior stunt introducing "Dreaming,” senior cooperation day with tired feet and greater understanding of "The customer is always right,” social functions and weekends followed by Mondays. This last year for the Class of '43 saw the undreamed-of transformation of Montague into a girls' dorm and McGee into barracks for glider pilots. The Class of '43 may have done a lot of yelling and complaining, but don’t think they have not enjoyed themselves. They have stuck together through four years of change and now, at the end of the beginning, no one is going to stop to worry about their future. 22of Nineteen Forty-Three ACKERMAN IRICK PETERS SMITH J. 0.

M»nog rt The Football Season It can be said without fear of contradiction that the 1942 football season at Furman University was one unique in the history of the school. This was not because of the record—a dismal three won, six lost affair—nor because of a tremendous amount of brilliance on the part of any individual, but rather for the unparalleled display of that time-honored quality known as intestinal fortitude. Before the season even got under way, the sports writing fraternity and the general run of the fans were searching their vernacular for a fitting epitaph for the Purple Hurricane of ‘42. Their line of thought ran something like this: "Here lies the remains of an undermanned football team which thought it could last through a schedule including the grid powers of the nation." But, wonder of all wonders, the 'Little Shack of Magic" did not fold up in the middle. Instead it just kept plugging along, one game after another, neither giving nor asking no quarter. And the Purples did themselves proud in the process. Yes, when the old-timers get together to talk over the football teams of Furman, they will remember that roll call of '42! DEWEY PROCTOR. CopU 90FURMAN 6—V. P. I. 7 Jupiter Pluvius, that perennial "fixer-upper" of athletic contests, provided an exceedingly drab and dreary setting for Furman’s 7 to 6 loss to V. P. I. in the season opener, in Sirrine Stadium. But Furman’s surprising performance took away some of the gloom—for most of the game anyway. Rated a very definite underdog, the Hurricane roared into the game in a manner not at all akin to the pre-game dope sheet. And to all intents and purposes the Purples had won themselves a ball gome by a snug 6-pomt margin until a desperation pass clicked for the Gobblers in the waning moments of play. Coach McLeod’s team took command of the game when Tackle Fred Hilliard blocked a Tech punt and End Karl Roesch gathered it in and ran 25 yards for a touchdown. The play was all enacted in a flash and fans did not comprehend the situation at once. Rolph Hamer missed his try for the extro point which later proved to be the deciding factor. A long V. P. I. pass in the closing moments of the game, slightly deflected by a Furman player but completed nevertheless, shoved the Gobblers into a 6-6 deadlock with Furman. The placement was good and Furman’s fate was sealed. Thus did the Hurricane inaugurate the hardest schedule ever attempted by the smallest team in the history of Furman. And at the same time the Purples served notice that they were not a team to be trifled with. ROY HILLIARD. Guard RANDY ELVINGTON Center JACK SUMMERS.

GEORGIA 40—FURMAN 7 Furman’s second some of the season with Georgia's nationally touted powerhouse ran in much the same order as predicted by pre-game drum beaters when Sinkwich and company romped to a 40-7 triumph. Many observers, however, are still wondering what the outcome wo’uld hove been if the Purples had played the entire game os they did the second holf, or even the lost three quarters. A devastating first period found the Hurricane completely subdued and humbled by the lightning-like movements of the Bulldogs. In less than five minutes, Georgia had executed three bewildering touchdown strokes while the Purples were still trying to Fmd themselves. Once having adjusted themselves to the brilliont Georgia tactics, however, the Purples threw up a defense which allowed only 25 points in the three and a half remaining periods of play. The Furman line well-nigh held its own against a heavier and vastly superior Georgia line—the same line was given almost entire credit for Georgia’s 34 to 0 conquest of Georgia Tech. Furman's sole offensive gesture was executed via a baffling reverse play which proved of great value before the season ended. Captain Dewey Proctor took the ball on the play, reversed his field and golloped 60 spectacular yards for a touchdown. Ralph Hamer kicked the extra point. Fireball Frankie Sinkwich, Charlie Trippi, Lamar and Van Davis and George Poschner were mediums of victory for Georgia. Poschner was designated by one of the Furman line men as the greatest end he had ever seen.FURMAN 6—WAKE FOREST 14 "He turned in the greatest determined offensive show ever made by a boy wearing the Purple and White at Furman.' Those were the words with which Coach A. P. (Dizzy) McLeod described Captain Dewey Procter after Furman's 14- to 6 loss to the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest. And it was definitely the Admiral's game: he almost singlehanded bore the entire running attack which came so near upsetting the Wake Forest applecart; he ran for 82, 35, and 58 yards on three occasions and executed numerous miscellaneous runs of between 5 and 30 yards; he made many of his runs on nothing more than sheer and dogged determination; he was in on os many tackles as any other member of the team. Two golden opportunities for Furman touchdowns were blighted on the Wake Forest 1 7- and 2-yard lines when the Purples held first downs. Proctor's sensational 80-yard run carried him over the goal but the officials ruled that he stepped out of bounds on the three and gave Furman possession of the ball at this point. Thus the Purples failed to capitalize on two openings which would have won the game. Only a few minutes remained in the last quarter when Jim Barnett faded far back and tossed a high floating pass of some 20 yards which landed in the outstretched arms of Jack Schuyler in the end zone for Furman's only score. Incidentally, a 58-yard run by Proctor put the ball in scoring position. Otis Sacrinity, Deacon sophomore star, accounted for all 14 of his team's points. He caught a 24-yard pass from Red Cochran for one touchdown, a 20-yard heave from Cochran for another, and kicked both extra points for a perfect night.

C. The 6 0 victims of this mudfest were the George Washington Colonials. The elements had so affected the field that running was well-nigh impossible. As a result the game was complete with falls, fumbles and pile-ups as the teams sloshed this way and that and punted back and forth. Paul Sizemore was cast in a heroic mold as he kicked the slippery ball time after time for huge chunks of yardage; he averaged over 40 yards for the amazing total of some 15 punts. The Purples showed the first offensive spark of the game when Jack Schuyler took a reverse 40 yards to the George Washington 15-yard stripe and Ralph Hamer lugged the spheroid to the 10. But Dewey Proctor fumbled on the next play and the Colonials recovered the elusive, mud-covered pigskin to end the threat. Captain Proctor added the redeeming quality in the third period, however, when he directed and carried out a brilliant 69-yard run for the only score of the game. When the Colonial line burst through on the play, Proctor did not hand the ball to Schuyler os the proposed reverse demanded, but rather, darted off tackle and into the clear for his decisive jaunt to the goal. Homer’s placement was wide. The victory proved o costly one for Furman when regular end, Karl Roesch, and center, Randy Elvington, suffered severe leg injuries. Roesch wos confined to the sidelines for the remainder of the season, but Elvington recuperated for lotcr service. CHARLES 7RULUCK Tailback Here's tbc George Washington Mud Battle. Nuff Said! 94FURMAN 7—TENNESSEE 52 Captain Dewey Proctor was in the Tennessee game for exactly three minutes, and for exactly three minutes Furman looked like a football team, out-played the Vols and made the only touchdown of the game. The final score, however, was 52-7, Tennessee. Suffering from an acute attack of ptomaine poisoning, Proctor did not start the game but entered near the end of the second quarter when the Purples held the ball deep in their own territory. In exactly three plays after Proctor's entrance, the Hurricane had advanced to the Tennessee 20, and some two minutes later Proctor bulled through half of the Vol line from the three-yard line for the touchdown. Ralph Hamer's trusty toe accounted for the extra point and the remainder of Furman's total offense for the day. The powerful Vols racked up 20 points in the first half, added 14 in the third and then retired to the sidelines in the fourth to watch their freshmen mates register 18 more points against the hapless Purples. Victims of a steamroller blocking attack, the Furman players were virtually helpless as the hard-charging backs dashed off one long run after another almost at will. The word almost is appropriately inserted in the forerunning sentence, because one Furman player—Guard Jack Summers to wit— did manage to withstand the fierce blocking to do some beautiful tackling.

The squad, unusually small in the beginning, was at its season's low after a disastrous series of injuries. However, the doughty band of Furman men somehow managed to put a team on the field that typical Florida afternoon and lost a 32 to 13 decision. But not before they gained the admiration of every fan present with a will to win which just wouldn't admit defeat—not even after the Miami Hurricane had roared to four touchdowns in quick order durinq the first half. Trailing by four touchdowns to none, the Purples came back in the second half with some inspiring play that held Miami to only one more touchdown and contributed two for Furman. A pass, Skeeter Coyle to Ike Smoak, accounted for Furman's first score after Nelson Phillips recovered Hlasnick's fumble on the Miami eight-yard line. Hamer failed to convert. Sophomore Leon Johnson, a hard-running defensive tower who proved one of the most valuable members of the backfield throughout the season, staked Furman to its second touchdown with a sparkling 32-yard dash to the double stripes. The run climaxed a 53-yard sustained drive. Ralph Hamer kicked the extra point. Miami crossed the Furman goal once more just before the end of the game.

The game sounded the clarion call throughout the South Conference that Furman was definitely not lacking in ability as in numbers. The contest, Furman's first state game and second victory in seven engagements, olso marked one of the major upsets of the season. Even the most optimistic fan could only rank the Purple team an even bet with the high-riding Bulldogs. Suppressed upon the qround, the Hurricane struck through the air for two of its three touchdowns. Skeeter Coyle and Dewey Proctor collaborated for a 21-yard gain and the first touchdown. The second score via the airways came on a 15-yard heave from Charles Truluck to Ike Smoak. Truluck paid a high price for his stardom in the game when he suffered a punctured lung and was confined to the sidelines for the remainder of the season. Billy Lavender, the outstanding Furman runner of the afternoon, penetrated the Bulldog goal for the other touchdown with a neatly executed 14-yard run. Lavender was the only Hurricane back to meet even limited success on the ground; he gained a total of 46 yards while none of his mates garnered over eight. Andy Victor, The Citadel's All-Southern back, captured offensive honors of the day with 80 yards to his credit. The facts explain the game better than any sports writing vernacular might: Citadel out-rushed Furman 175 yards to 54; Furman gained 80 yards in the air to 22 for The Citadel.

FURMAN 6—CAROLINA 0 A story book finish which rivals some of those Horatio Alger fictions lifted Furman over the University of South Carolina, 6-0 os it continued a blazing finish to an otherwise dismal campaign. The final dramatic flourish in the waning moments of the contest started when Dewey Proctor darted off tackle for eight yards, but the payoff came when he tossed a lateral to Paul Sizemore just as he was about to be pulled to the turf. With Jock Summers doing a beautiful job of blocking two Gamecocks nearest the play, Sizemore stumbled for several steps and then straightened out on o sensational 73-yard sprint to the goal. Ralph Hamer failed to convert, but the game ended four plays later with the Purple and White spangles waving victoriously in their second consecutive state conquest. The first three quarters and almost all of the last revolved into one of the tightest defensive games of the year, with both teams straining back and forth over the 50-yard line but with neither getting nearer the goal than the 20. The phenomenal punting of "Stringbeans" Sizemore was one of two big factors in Furman's half of the defensive struggle. The other was the sterling, untiring line play of Fred and Roy Hilliard, Nelson Phillips, Jack Summers, Randy Elvington and Ike Smoak. 98FURMAN 7—CLEMSON 12 Came the annual season-finale with the Clemson Tigers and Furman was favored to win for the first time since 1936. And it did appear the Purples had a victory over Clemson until Dame Destiny stepped out in the form of a Furman fumble to provide the Tigers a scoring opportunity which downed the Hurricane, 12 to 7. Spearheaded by the running ot two Greenville boys, Marion (Hawk) Craig and Marion (Butch) Butler, the Bengals sprang into action in the first few minutes of play to score on a sustained drive of four first downs. Butler plunged over the goal from the Five. The try for extra point was not good. After this sudden burst of fireworks, the two teams settled down to an erratic defensive battle which was waged back and forth on comparatively even terms. Clemson still clung to a 6-0 lead at the half-time intermission. The score remained unchanged until the final period when Furman recovered a Clemson fumble on the Tigers’ 25 and eventually went from there to score. Jim Barnett passed 20 yards to Jack Schuyler to give the Purples a first down on the Clemson five-yard line, but the Bengals braced to take the ball on down on their own one-yard stripe. Butler punted 45 yards to Ralph Hamer who returned 15 yards to the 30. Hamer executed the old "Statue of Liberty” play for 10 more yards before Dewey Proctor passed 20 yards to Paul Sizemore in the end zone for Furman's only touchdown. Ralph Hamer placekicked the point to shove the Purples into a 7-6 lead. Clemson took advantage of a Furman fumble on the Furman 19, however, to score the winning touchdown. Monty Byers heaved a flat pass in the end zone to Chip Clark for the decisive stroke.

For Ten Minutes cosion' brou9ht about by the demands of this conflict, it can be said without fear of exaggeration or contradiction that "Shorty" Edwards and Mr. Parsons have accomplished miracles with the material on hand in the physical education department. The ingenuity of their minds conjured every conceivable device to make weak students strong and strong students stronger. No one will ever forget those first nerve-wracking days when every nerve and fiber in the body cried out in rebellion against further punishment. Gradually, however, students began to hit their stride and, as their endurance increased, they actually began to enjoy their work (that's what it was). PARSONS Shows the R.ght 'Way to do it J. T. ton do this for Hours. Can You? Who'll Get the Boll? 100Education.....Oh-h! The obstacle course, the handbar, the punching bag, the medicine ball, the cinder path, the ropes. Handball, basketball, soccer, softball, volleyball, tennis, football, swimming—all these sports and exercises were employed by the physical education instructors, not only to develop the body, but to arouse a spirit of competition and a love of battle as well. The question of attending physical education classes was not left to the individual student; every able-bodied Furman male was required to attend. Even though compulsory attendance aroused ex-Dected criticism at first, by the end of the year there was not one sane student who argued that it was not one of the finest changes made in the Curriculum. The finol result was nothing but miraculous. Wiry muscles replaced flabby fat. Shortwindedness became passe. The student who could not swim and run for miles is no more. Furman students who go out to answer their country's call do so in the happy realization that, physically, they are prepared to do more than their duty. 101 SAMMY dees t, bat BEARD tcemi AfraidWhet o Formidable Lineup Tennis. . What with the priority on tennis balls, transportation difficulties and the likelihood of any member of the team's being called into service any day, plans Tor the 1943 tennis team are uncertain. Assuming that the team loses no member before the end of the semester—a presumptuous assumption—the lineup still will not be one to strike fear in the heart of any opposition which might be encountered. Missing from this year’s aggregation will be Thomas Rhocies and Bill DeLaney of last year’s squad. Rhodes was a top-flight player in State Collegiate circles and could be relied upon to win the majority of his matenes regardless of the opposition. DeLaney, although not so versatile, playea an extremely steady game. It will be hard to replace either of these two men. 102 FITTS Follow Through BEARD Donees on His ToesReady, Serve The one player on this year's quintet whose performance is of championship caliber is Bill Pitts, number one man, and a former state junior singles and doubles champion. Boasting a well-rounded game, Pitts is equally at home on the baseline or ot the net. His drives, forehand or backhand, are deep and hard; his volleying crisp and precise. It is unfortunote that lack of opposition has taken the keen edge from his game. The other players? Well, they just hit the ball and hope. Ed Beard strokes the ball nicely from the baseline out his volleying is not effective even on his best days. One player who possesses a repertoire of strokes but has seme difficulty in covering court is Joe Boyter. However, he frequently comes through with a victory when it really counts. Unorthodox is an opt description for the gome which Sam Garrett plays. Performing well enough against mediocre opposition, Garrett is easily taken into camp by a really excellent player. Beecher Strawn practically refuses to leave the baseline where he drives fiercely, whether the occasion warrants it or not, and he is glaringly weak at the net. In addition he is handicapped by a bad temper which, though always directed against himself, is nevertheless disastrous for his game. The annual trip to Florida, like unlimited gas, is only a memory now. Probable opposition is P. C„ University of S. C., Citadel, Clemson, Wofford, Erskine, N. C. State, College of Charleston, Wake Forest and Davidson.

A thankless job, this leading of the rabble, but don't we all wish we could? Our four officers of executive action took office in the spring of 1942 after a short election period smelling of brazen demagoguery and outrageous political promises, which none but the stupid were supposed to believe, ineo-retically our independent leaders, they were actually our suppliant envoys to the administra lion, although we shouldn’t be betraying our family scandals with such conscienceless effrontery—those who come after us must not think that we regard our elders with less than humble respect. The accomplishment "magnifique’' put over by our officers this year was a very successful student body party. As for the other big plans scheduled, all parties concerned were saved any embarrassment arising from administrative edicts by the OPA. Bill Bussey, as president, with the aid of his cabinet—a new feature of our student government, which constitutes Bill’s most noteworthy innovation—engineered our parties and receptions, presided at the Wednesday morning chapel services, and represented the student body on special occasions. Roy McCall, vice-president, had his hands full as administrator of the Freshman Advisory Board and really did a wonderful job while S. R. Mitchell, secretary, did somewhat the same work in a different way as head of the Rat Court, and Bob Mobley, treasurer, headed a non existent house committee and doled out our student funds. (OSBody Off icers Even those men who assbme on oir of cynicism towards ail women executives must grudgingly admit that the Woman’s College student body officers, who serve as the executive heads of the girls' student body organization, perform their tasks with fatiguing precision and competency. Whether or not any of the four ladies wiil ever develop into onothcr Claire Booth Luce is questionable, but they run the girls’ student government in such an efficacious manner that the National Congress is put to shame by contrast. Ruth Mitchell, as president, presides over ail meetings of the Council and student body and. in addition, appoints committees along with handling reports of infractions of rules. Peggy Belle, vice-president, is alloted complete charge of freshman orientation. Keeping the minutes of student council, posting all offenses and penalties and handling student body correspondence—these arc the responsibilities of Beth McNaob, secretary.

Entrusted with the task of "putting teeth" into our still infantile honor system, this year’s council under President Dwight Smith, Vice-President Frank Rivers and Secretary Joe Boyter, has firmly entrenched the code as the basic requirement of campus life—they think and we hope. For the sake of posterity, for there breathes no Furman man who never to himself hath had this said an unflattering number of times, the honor system provides for only three offenses, lying, cheating and stealing with each drawing the expulsion penalty. Assuming that all Furman men are gentlemen, the council tries to see to it that those who aren’t are not long Furman men. HOWOMAN’S CAMPUS The twenty members of Student Council, elected annually by student body members to represent them, are the cogs upon which the honor system of the Woman's College turns. Under this system of self-government, students feel the full responsibility of their part. Informal discussions led by President Ruth Mitchell, preceded Fall Retreat when council talked over new legislation and regular student body meetings gave members the chance to voice their opinions. Vice-President Peg Belk, Secretary Beth McNabb and Treasurer Mildred Hatchell have helped Mitchell prove that Council is more than a means of dishing out penalties. In addition to the student body officers, Council consists of Doris Davis who represents B. S. U., Carolyn Trucsdale, V. W. A., Delores Edwards, Y. W. C. A., and Hayne Courtenay, W. A. A. The class presidents—Gwen Smith, Lillie Fuller, Sally Lang, and Booty Moss—are four of the twenty members. Mary Frances Davis, Dot Carwile and Cynthia Knight are junior class representatives and Marian Horton represents the sophomore class. Sara F. Martin looks after the freshmen interests. Jane Alice represents the day students and Norma Karlen the Montague girls. “G” Taylor as president of the House Board and Annie Margaret McDonald as the chairman of the Social Standards Board complete Student Council.

The enforcing of freshman regulations from orientation throughout the year along with the promotion of Rat Day were the chief reasons for its organization in 1941. Meetings were held on Tuesday nights in Griffith Hall to sentence "Frosh" who had failed to wear rat caps or showed bad attitudes towards hazing on the campus. Some of the Court's duties were: marching freshmen in a body up Main Street to the "Zoo" for rat night, staying late after chapel to see that the freshmen had their caps, seating all freshmen behind the band at football games, giving upperclassmen a good first impression of Rat Day on the campus—managing Rat Day with a sawdust-molasses mixture before freshmen hit the belt line and with such frivolities as smut fights, milking a cow, bath tub acts and tug of war—all were a successful continuation of the traditional snake dance up Main Street. Sophomore class president Ralph Morrow is ex-officio chairman; he and the remaining members, chosen by their class are pictured above. 112In spite of the fact that legislatures and congresses have been dimmed to insignificance all over the world under the stress of war efficiency, our legislature at Furman this year has radiated an unprecedented glow; and we aren't referring to that notorious, scarlet hue said to disfigure the nostrils of all reputable lawmakers but to remarkable efficiency and acute sense of duty. With the new powers and prestige which they sought, fought for, and won after some thousand verbal fist fights with rival powers, the lawmakers have attained the zenith of political ambition on our campus—the point of public recognition more than the one time that their names appear on the voting ballots. As a check on the other two branches of the government, the legislature has been so implacably from "Missouri” that it has earned the reputation of being anti-administration, but that’s no crime unless you’re a Democrat. The members of the legislature represent the dormitories, fraternity houses and day students and are elected by the group which they represent. The duties, of course, have to do with the passing of new laws and the repeal of old ones and "Anything that does not encroach upon the rights and duties of the student body officers, the Student Council, and which is not within the range of faculty supervision." The officers and members of the 1942-43 legislature are pictured below. Student Legislature First Row: FURMAN KEYS. DEAN BROCKMAN, SUNNy McMANNAWAY.

FURMAN UNIVERSITY Ching Foo (some guy we picked up in Shangri-La) say: "It is wisely written 'how can we say the young are ignorant and the old are wise, since age brings wisdom only to the wise’?” Freshmen are inveterate believers in that maxim as any exasperated councilman will testify after trying vainly to convince these complacent refugees from high schools that there are still a few minor facts of life to be learned. The advisory board members are drafted from the three upper classes by the student council to pilot the freshmen through a dull orientation period in September, around lurking temptations such as too much "wine, women, and song” and too little perspiration and midnight oil, up to the auspicious graduation day in May when some benevolent upperclassman elevates the supposedly chased "rat” into the order of the higher rodents by applying a broom with some vigor on the logical part of the frosh’s anatomy. Each councilor has his own group of freshmen and cooperates with a faculty member in defining the mysteries of college life. Roy McCall, vice-president of the student body headed the board this year while Mr. Dick Burts, dean of freshmen, acted as general advisor. 114Advisory Boards Completely ignoring the popular belief that co-eds enter college with the sole objective of snaring some eligible man, the women freshmen advisors are boringly conscientious in carrying out their duties; namely, to see that every freshman girl becomes quickly and happily adjusted to the rigors of college life through careful supervision and instruction. However, unfaltering human endeavor and a commendable sense of duty on the part of each member of the board can do so much and no more; so some of our nicest freshmen wander around forlornly all year, marvel that they ever came to college, make long distance calls to "mama’’ and endure school until that weekend at home rolls around. The Student Council appoints all advisors who are headed by Peggy Belk, vice-president of the student body. WOMAN’S COLLEGE PEGGy BELK. CYNTHIA KNIGHT. EMILY BULL. EDYTH LONG. BETTY GRAY.

Rice, smith, f Keys HAyNeswoRTH. groce Listed as the primary requisite for membership in Quarternion is the quality of leadership but a more important characteristic is whether or not a student’s father is an ex-member. But, after all, the world would be boringly perfect if there were no inequalities and injustices attributable to "pull” to crusade against or be amused about. As in most organizations the true, worthy members of the Quarternion outnumber those elected for political expediency. Using the tiny shade which is known as "The old college" and which is now being supported somewhat precariously by the pillars of tradition (the upkeep is cheaper that way and it gives our love practical use!), the Quarternions combine practicality with pleasure and insist that each group of new members whitewash the dilapidated boards as well as brag about their achievement by wearing red bandannas around their necks to astound fellow students. Once in a while, ’tis rumored, there are important business meetings presumably to instruct in better leadership but we the students, never know it—the old political machine just keeps on rolling along as before. Members of the Quarternion Club this year are Bill Bussey, Aaron Groce, Harry Hay-nesworth, Furman Keys, Rufus Keys, J. T. Rice, Dwight Smith. 118Senior Order, the honorary leadership society of the Woman's College, began with the class of 1938. Membership in the organization, limited to twelve per cent of the junior class, is based on qualities such as leadership, scholarship, dependability, cooperativeness, personal appearance, unselfish service and sincerity. The group is supposed to foster scholarship and citizenship; to organize and work out some definite project for the school and to meet any need which may arise in the student body; but the group meets every Monday night. Wearing the Senior Order pen this year are: Peggy Belle, Marydel Carpenter, Hayne Courtney, Doris Davis, Lynn Irick, Frances Lancaster, Annie Margaret McDonald, Ruth Mitchell, Mary Margaret Nicholson, Gwen Smith and Genevieve Taylor.

The Furman Theater Guild The Furman Theater Guild, composed of students with a professed interest in any phase of dramatics, aims to create an active interest in the theater amons the students. Five major plays are presented each year, some characterized by vim and effort; others depictins real dramatic ability. This year the club has presented plays, not only for the students’ enjoyment, but for the soldiers’ entertainment as well. Students who wish to learn about dramatic productions by active participation, may become apprentices of the Theater Guild and later, craftsmen and master-craftsmen by gaining points either through assisting with stage management or by being members of the cast in Guild plays. New members are elected each spring on the merit of previous dramatic work. ELISE LONG Pret-denl 120Alpha Psi Omega Carrying out the theatrical tradition of the caste system, the Eta Chapter of the Alpha Psi Omega, national dramatic fraternity, taps for its membership the elite of the Furman Theater Guild. Or shall we say that the odorous epithet, the horror of all Shakespearean interpreters, "hammy”, can be invoked less generally on the heads of its members? It was in 1939 that the fraternity embraced the arduous and thankless task of cultivating dramatic talent and a taste for the theater. Never once has it faltered or failed the old battle cry, "the show must go on" even to the altruistic extent of establishing a fund to help students do graduate work in dramatics, to say nothing of the practical experience it has offered in amateur productions for undergraduates. All members of the Theater Guild are eligible for Alpha Psi with the judgment depending on "it’s not what you do but the way you do it." GWEN SMITH. Vice-President: ANN FERGUSON.

President 121Baptist Student Meet the men who head the organization which boasts of its mission to carry on the Christian spirit that has always been a part of the college life of every student who has ever matriculated at Furman. Ministers they are not, for the most part, but simple laymen who live the good life and labor drudgingly to prove examples of it without provoking our contempt for extreme virtuosity; for those few who succeed we have respect. Boasting a compulsory membership of all Baptist students on the campus and a small industrious corps of interested boys, the B. S. U. sponsors a "Join the Church Day," engineered a "Freshman Carnival,” turns salesman to get rid of as many "Baptist Student” magazines as possible, and entertains us, in a moral sort of way, with several chapel speeches and a bi-weekly radio program. The members of the Council for this year are: Walter Heacock, President; Ralph Lattimore, First Vice-President; Rufus Keys, Second Vice-President; LeRoy Benedict, Third Vice-President; Everette Croxton, Secretary; Joe Reed, Treasurer, and Bunny Crouch, Reporter. Other active representatives are Buddy Jay, Burrell Jones, Gilmer Weatherly, Charles DeLoach, Horace Buddin, Lewis McKinney, Roy McCall, Lloyd Hellams, Bill Bailey, Herbert Archer, Joe Stroud, Creighton Oliver, Ellis Bryan, Bill Bussey, Joe Caldwell, Sam Moseley, and Gordon Weekley.

This last aim is greatly promoted by the fact that the president and vice-president of the Association are members of the Student Council, thus bringing the executive boards closer together. Though it does not have a long list of activities to point to, the Day Students’ Association aims mainly to make each day student feel that she really is a part of the Woman’s College.

Before the curtain comes down, there are a few things which we have to say. The job of putting out an annual is never an easy one. This year our problems were multiplied. A budget cut to the bone, a revision in the layout, afternoon classes, staff members drafted—these are a few of the many problems with which we have had to contend. But always it’s been satisfying, knowing that the end was good even if the journey seemed a little difficult. Above all this year, we've tried to be true-to-life. Life at Furman isn't stiff; why should the record of college life be that way? And so the 1943 Bonhomie is characterized by complete informality. Honesty and objectivity have been our two watchwords.

Despite the protest of the few who insisted upon blushing at family skeletons and stuffing them, ostrich-like in abandoned closets, "The Hornet” proceeded from the first issue to build toward absolute freedom of press and an interest appeal for every type of student. It lambasted the compulsory chapel rule, inaugurated and put over a successful war bond drive, editorialized on the value of Town Hall lectures, supported athletics, bemoaned administration and student non-cooperation, pleaded for the honor system, damned dull chapel programs, demanded more student unity, and objected strenuously to publications censorship by the faculty, and denoted its contempt by the simple device of pretending that faculty advice non-existent to "Hornet” policy.V Acquired a Stinger Reading left to right: JAMES CULP, Managing Editor; BEECHER STRAWN, Feature Editor; THOMAS BELL, Circulation Manager; PENDLETON BANKS, Columnist; •10" EVANS, Columnist; MARY LOUISE SIMPSON, Columnist; CALVIN EDWARDS, Sports Assistant; ELLIS HUGULEY, Photographer; FRANK PERRY, Reporter; BUNNY CROUCH, Reporter; FLOY COX, JR., Reporter; MARIAN SMITH, Reporter; JOSIE LEARY, Reporter; DOT RABB, Advertising Assistant; RUDOLPH HAND, Advertising Assistant; BOBBY WALDROP, Circulation Assistant.

At the informal meetings, the members, usually sitting on the floor of Poteat Parlor, exchange ideas, value one another's compositions and divulge their secrets of inspiration. This year, wishing to share the pleasure discovered in literature with all the students, Prelude sponsored a series of Book Teas, at which others had the chance to hear talks, panel discussions and recordings of old and new books.

The Queen and Maids of Honor QUEEN LIB TUTEN, elected by popular vote of the entire student body, was attended by DOT FEW and HELEN RUFFIN as maids of honor. 148May Day In keeping with another Woman’s College tradition. May Day, 1942, was a reproduction of the first celebration of the fete in 1837. The key note of the performance, given in the natural surroundings of the court in front of the Fine Arts Buildings, was one of simplicity— in dress and in program. The queen and her attendants wore costumes almost identical with those of the May Court of 105 years ago. There was no elaborate program; following the coronation there was merely a series of songs and dances given in honor of Miss Lib Tuten. An informal reception was held for the Queen and her attendants on the front campus. 149The Queen From the Senior class, QUEEN LIB TUTEN was attended by DORIS TINDAL, JENELLE GARRETT and MARIAN SMITH.

MARY LOUISE ANDERSONAbout The Fraternities One local and four national fraternities exist on the Furman campus. All these chapters have been established or re-established since 1927 when a ban on fraternities at Furman was lifted. The Senior and Junior Pan-Hellenic Councils, each made up of a member from every fraternity, are the governing bodies of these clubs. The task of the two Councils is to promote greater harmony between the faculty and the fraternities, and between the chapters themselves. 152THETA CHI GWEN SMITH, Sponto. The Theta Chi lads . . . B.

But there are some things that are as much a part of the Furman day as ministerial students and sports clothes. Virginia Ann Jones, one of the Zoo's most attractive and popular co-eds, is a prize example of the case in mind. This fair lady has the same qualms as every one over getting up at 7:15 A. M. Once out of her warm bed, Virginia Ann hastily brushes her hair, applies her make-up, seizes her books and rushes off, none too soon, to class.

Once Sir Lochinvar has arrived, she signs out with him to the "Carolina.'' Back at the Zoo a farewell, letter writing, a little studying and Virginia Ann gratefully crawls into her bed and slumbers off to dream about a palace, called Ciemson, at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains where all the students dance eternally and where she is rushed off her feet by immaculately groomed men to the music of Benny Goodman's band.

Wh If the cranium of the gullible freshman expands to amazing proportions during rush week, then the blame must be placed as much on the scheming upperclassmen as on the unlearned frosh, for in an attempt to secure potentially excellent material for his own fraternity, the conniving upperclassman uses every weapon known to man except hondcuffs. The innocent freshman is ushered into a newly cleaned and renovated frat house where he is pointed out this and that special virtue.

Rush dances are given at the Poinsett Hotel; music and lovely girls add their power and prestige on the freshman to please go right. And afterwards? The pledges are disillusioned but wiser boys.

Max Steele and Ann Lawrence for their unusual editorial efforts, Ruth Farrelly, Nona Hamilton and Emily Bull for seeing that we remembered the "Zoo," Buddy Jay for his cartoons, Susie Huff and Olive Sims for their untiring typing, Rudolph Hand for his able work on the business staff, Bill Link for doing those huge piles of ends which always accumulated. Price Coursey, Metl Douglas and Marian Floyd for doing everything and doing it well. Bill Deighton of the Charlotte Engraving Company, Bob Davis of The R. L. Bryan Company, and Mr. W. A. Cauthen of Dunbar Studio, all helped make our difficult task easier.
