Again in the moonlight Merry voices I hear, Then a song through the stillness Is borne to my ear — Forgot is French Grammar, And " T. A. " divine, For the shack boys are singing To " Sweet Adeline. " Now a morning of spring-time, On that campus I see, All the elms in green glory And song birds in each tree. There are hedges of roses, Wild strawberries, too, And the soft southern breeze Tells of violets new. And as stars after sunset, One by one, fill the sky. So the faces and voices Of old friends multiply. From lesson to library, Back to lesson again, All happy together — As we should have been. But some wind has blown us Away from that dear place; Just a few now are left Our commencement to grace. So here ' s health, wealth and joy From hearts that beat true; Fairest Class, NINETEEN TEN, Here ' s to Millsaps and YOU. H. 36 Senior History HAVE been entrusted with the high honor of writing the History of the Class of 1910. A serious task! More so, because my capricious .Muse of Inspiration has forsaken me at the most needful moments, and because my recent trip to " Nod Land, " where I had hoped to rind some light on the subject has also proved absolutely fruitless. Now, taking into consideration the score of my brilliant predecessors and their equally brilliant achievements, 1 begin to realize the gravity of my own situation and the perilous disadvantage at which my classmates are placed. Hut. gentle reader, only remembering that " Officium primum est. " I resolved to give you something, even if it be a free version of " The Same Old Story in the Same Old Way, " and when my task is finally completed, I shall breathe a sigh of relief and withdraw with humblest apologies into the remotest corner. To begin with, ours was a case of " Veni, vidi, vici, " as the first and decisive battle was won by us at the time when we were in our embryonic stage, in September of 1906. When our band of seventy-three came together and organized into a class, it was decided unanimously that green should not be selected as a class color. Thus we at once deprived the upper classmen of their traditional pleasure of prefixing such a beautiful epithet to our names as " verdant Freshmen, " and, moreover, we placed ourselves upon a higher level than any Freshmen had ever dreamed of. Very soon, indeed, the entire student bodv came to realize that the Class of ' 10 was composed of individ- uals with whom they would have to reckon. Throughout the entire session we maintained the highest standard in every phase of college life. W e were successful in our class work; our men served as beacons of light and ex- amples of eloquence in both literary societies; we were well represented in every issue of the Collegian; we took an active part in Y. M. C. A. work, and in Athletics we outstripped on the whole every other class. Finally, when the session was over and we bade each other good-bye. we realized that the foundation of our class monument was well laid. Each one of us went in his direction to accumulate new strength, in order to help build this monument 37 tn grander proportions and loftier heights than had ever been attempted heretofore by any other class. September of 1 ' 07 found us again assembled in the College chapel. We were somewhat diminished in number (twenty-one of us having remained in the world) but not in spirit. With the same zeal and zest we threw our- selves into our work. We attacked the hated " sines " and " cosines. " as well as our opponents on the football field, with an equal fervor; we " rode " bravely over the well-trodden but rocky paths of Virgil and Xenophon ; we have gone through all the immeasurable pleasures which the immortal " T. A. " afforded tis ; we have subjected ourselves to tin- inspiring effects of H.,S, and learned to pronounce with precise correctness, " Ich liebe dich, " when ad- dressing ourselves to the fairest members of the fair sex. In the halls of our Literary Societies, the arrows of eloquence of the members of ' 10 were more sharp and piercing than ever. During the baseball sease)n we dragged into the dust of defeat many an upper as well as lower classman, and in the " Gym " we proved preeminent. Finally, when the battle was called off and we were proclaimed victors, we found that our class monument was more than half built. Again we parted for the summer to return as Juniors and continue our noble work. In the fall of the year 1S08, our Class entered upon an era of almost un- precedented success. After having spent some time in lamenting over those eighteen who had not returned to college, we took up our work. And work it was! Some of us settled down, determined to master the structural formula of " para-oxy-phenyl-alpha-amino propionic acid. " thus attaining fame ami immortality. Some have thought it their ditty to proclaim the deeds of the Class of ' 10 " all over the land of cotton, " and especially among the fair and beautiful. Like the bards of old. they have adopted for that purpose a well- known song, used by their colleagues on the Rhine: " Mein Herz ist wie ein Bienen-Haus, Die Madchen sind die Bienen; Sie gehen in, Sie gehen aus ; Mein 1 lerz ist wie ein I ' lienen-Haus. " Still others have been puzzling their brains in an effort to prove to the world that Newton was not such a wonder after all, that the Class of ' 10 could defy all " Laws of Motion " ; and really, at the close of the session, several of us have found ourselves at exactly the same point from which we started. I do not doubt that we would have succeeded in overthrowing the laws of the insignificant Newton were it not For our beloved Dr. Sullivan. The latter, fearing that we contemplated the downfall of the old reliable school of 38 Physics, began at mice to apply " specials " as an antidote and I " , behold, we moved on with the rapidity of a glacier! But all these noble efforts and worth)- attainments were nothing in com- parison with the task of establishing our College weekly, the Purple and White. We are proud that the idea was originated bv one from our midst. An indi- vidual, whose outward appearance is that of an ordinary mortal, were it not for the pince-nez which ornaments his Roman nose, and the red hair which falls in profusion about his philosophic brow, but whose inward qualities are those of a literary genius still in his teens, and a strong tendency for " wire pulling. " 1 refer to no one else than " Red, " alias " Rough. " Once he " dipt into the future far as human eye could see " and perceived at once a wide and undeveloped field for the latent literary forces of the Junior Class. Upon communicating the idea to the rest of us, he met with a hearty support, and soon a crowd of enthusiastic Juniors were set t work, carrying through their magnificent plan under the benevolent auspices of our esteemed I r. Kern. A few days later, the rustling sound of one of the best college weeklies in America was heard in every nook and corner of the campus. Names like " Ed " Brewer, " Boyd " Campbell, " Gus " Kelly, " Prep " Wasson, " Red " Xeill, and man_ ' , many others will be handed down to posterity, for they are the ones who gave whatever brains and time they could spare to the development of our Purple and White. In the meantime, the sun was rising and setting, and when the hour of parting struck the third annual knell, we looked up and beheld that our mon- ument had risen to a dizzy height, like one of the pyramids of old Egypt, and that the monuments of those who had gone before us looked much smaller and poorer in workmanship. " Piene est, " said we to each other and departed, each one taking his course. Xow we have reached our " annus mirabilissimus, " and with pangs oi regret we must say that our present number has dwindled down to twenty- six. The momentous annals of our last year ' s struggle are not yet completed, but we have already accomplished some things that constitute a worthy and brilliant crown for our unsurpassed class monument. In the fall our attention was centered on the gridiron, and the spirit of our courageous football players has been wisely likened to that displayed by those who once protected the pass of Thermopylae. They had experienced a similar fate to our men ; beaten but not defeated! Never defeated! For the spirit of our revered heroes is just as staunch and undaunted as ever! The Class of ' 10 is still leading the Purple and White, and continues to do noble work through its columns. The artistic and literary work of the Boba- 39 siikla is being dune exclusively by the members of ' 10, and one of our numer- ous followers of Demosthenes is to represent our College at the coming State Oratorical Contest. Meanwhile we have accumulated new stores of knowledge. We fully comprehend the difference between " conation " and " cognition " ; we have learned the most startling fact, that besides us there have been Trilobites Paradoxides and Pentromites Godona who have added to the sum total of the universe. Some of us are still in quest of the " Philosopher ' s Stone, " while others enjoy immensely the course in " star gazing " while in the friendly embrace of Morpheus. In short, we are still in the midst of our troubles, but our days are numbered, and we shall soon have to leave the protecting walls of our dear Alma Mater — one of the largest and best classes she has ever sent forth — and go out into the world to grapple a mighty battle with Life. So, with the old Grit and Spirit, forward, boys, for " Is it well that while we range with Science, glorying in Time, City children soak ' and blacken soul and sense in city slime: " Follow you the Star that lights a desert pathway, yours or mine. Forward, till you see the highest human nature is divine. ' ' Follow Light ami do the Right — for man can half control his doom — Till you find the deathless Angel seated in the vacant tomb.

To the Class of 1911 we bequeath our beloved Bobashela, with the hope that for them the work on it will progress as smoothly and harmoniously as we have found it to do. II.

The Se.mor Class. 42 Senior fl ropbec For I looked into the future far as the eye could see, Saw the vision of the Seniors and all the " humbugs " they could be. Am 1 mad that 1 should cherish that which will not come to pass? 1 will pluck it from my prophecy, our deeds will surely last. As the Senior is. the world is; he is mated to their plans. And the greatness of his learning will have weight in many lands. For I looked into the future far as the eye could see, Saw the vision of the Seniors and all the great men they would he. Saw that some were business men in a busy world of labor. A millionaire in fortune, and nobly helping out his neighbor. Some were versed in surgery, assisting the afflicted. Curing the worst diseases tongue or pen has e ' er depicted. Some were teaching the young, in the ways of truth and right. Giving " them lofty aspirations, preparing them for the fight. Some will show a light to all men, preach a gospel, all men ' s good, Show them their salvation by believing in Christ ' s spilt blood. Men my brothers, men the Seniors, ever doing something new, Where is the limit to the many noble things they ' ll do? For I doubt not thru all the Seniors one noble purpose holds. Inspires their comrades, and public sentiment moulds. We yearn for the large excitement that coming years will yield, We are eager as a boy when first he leaves his father ' s field. 43 And our spirits leap within us to be gone before us then. Underneath the light we look at, in among the throngs of men. There the common sense of us shall hold a fretful world at bay, With our learning we shall lift them up from day to day. So now into the world we plunge, to wander far and long, A sad farewell to Hooks and Profs., a farewell to Chapel-song. 44 AN UNROMANTIC CHRONICLE OF FOUR UNROMANTIC YEARS As a Freshman first he greets her; And ' t is out on North Stale Street That the chubby little student And sweet schoolgirl chance to meet.

" The Millsaps Law Class of l c )10 is undoubtedly the most extraordinary phenomenon of its kind that has appeared since the palmy days when our ancestors dwelt in the leafy-boughed palaces of Monkey-land. And the eternal and ever-recurring question of the populace is: " From whence did it come? " Xo proof need be offered to substantiate the assertion as to its being the most rambunctious phenomenon of the age; hut we only ask you, wearied reader, if you have any doubt about it. just to take a sidelong glance at any of its representatives and see if you, too, do not ask the question: " From whence did it come? " But your question will remain unanswered. It is an unsolved problem. Many theories have been offered by eminent Bugologists in their efforts to find their origin ; some have said that Teddy must have routed them from the jungles of Africa. Others have claimed that they are harmless specimens that Ted sent over. They have even been dragged into the North Pole con- troversy, both Cook and Peary claiming to have found them . However, little credence has been given to the statements of these gentlemen. There are others who claim, with some degree of certainty, that these are refugees from the infested districts of the boll weevil, otherwise, bankrupt and disgruntled farm hands. The gentlemen composing the Class have each a clear and distinct indi- viduality, and by these characteristics ye shall know them ; viz., Alford the Bashful, Berry the Dumb, Boutwell the Beautiful, Collins the Cunning, Ellzev the Erudite, Lee the Learned. Luper the Lean, Mayes the Regular, Martin the Sanctified, Osborn the Opulent, Snowden the Reformed, Simmons the Celibate, Thompson the Intelligent. Waller the Overworked, Williams the Silent. All these celebrities corralled into one bunch cause the Class of ' 10 to shine with undimmed lustrosity, even as irridescent and luminiferous satel- 50 lites in the illimitable firmament of imperishable grandiloquence. Their char- acteristics have permeated every feature of the college life like the odor of immemorial hash filling every nook and corner of that abode of afflicted hu- manity called a boarding-house. But, notwithstanding the varied and heterogeneous propensities making up the Class, two common features are found in every member. One of these is an inordinate, undisguised and immeasurable wealth of ignorance about even-thing in general, and law in particular. The other common character- istic is a strong and determined ambition to be leaders in the onward march of the millions toward a grander commonwealth and a greater civilization, whereby they may revolutionize the universe, perishing the microcosm in the limitless macrocosm and sinking this earthly segregate in the boundless, rushing, choral aggregation eternally E Pluribus I ' ntim. 51 COLORS Blue and Gold MOTTO " In our wisdom we trust, and in Latin we bust " OFFICERS R.

Mixg Uxg Zuxg Soochow, China 54 a. o History of tbc Class of 19X1 HE history of the Class of 1911! Noble three and twenty, what pen is worthy to recount thy great and glorious deeds! No pen is worthy, but we feel that we can not, with a clear conscience and in justice to our fellow men, leave unrecorded our most noble deeds. They have been many and great, and we regret that here we have space for only a few. In September, 1907, there were enrolled in the Freshman Class of Mill- saps College ninety boys and lour girls. Could there be a more perfect be- ginning? Then came class organization. The first officers of the Class of 1 11 were Roscoe C. Berry, 1 ' resident : Carrie Wharton, Vice-President; Marguerite Park. Secretary; A. B. Clark, Treasurer. Under these officers we achieved things remarkable and. in sooth, most astounding for a Freshman Class. The dignified and experienced Seniors, the haughty Juniors and even the wise Sophs stood in awe of such genius as we displayed in all we under- took; indeed, jealousy rankled in more than one ungenerous heart. In mental activities we always took the lead, breaking the record in Fresh- man Math. In the Literary Societies our genius was continually displaying itself before open-mouthed upper-classmen. In society at large, we acquired a most enviable position. In athletics, we proudly took the lead. Our foot- ball team, which has since been the envy of the colleges for miles around, in this first trial acquitted itself most gloriously, so that not only our Class but the College felt honored. In baseball we easily defeated the other class- men ami won the pennant. Thus victoriously ended our Freshman year and we went home to our well-deserved rest. But we returned — with slightly diminished numbers, we own. However, our ardor was not dampened by this. Sophs of 1S09! How full of victories for us was this vear stored! We took up our studies with renewed vig ' or and, as wise Sophomores should, we set about to place before the coming generations of Freshmen an example which they would be eager and proud to follow. We organized early with the following officers: A. C. Anderson. President; C. W. Bufkin, Vice-President; .Marguerite Park, Secretary. The sad death of our beloved President, later in the vear, was the occasion of 56 greatest grief, not only to our Class. but to the College. In his death we sustained an inestimable loss. To till the vacancy l . C. Berry was elected. As we applied ourselves, each day brought forth some fresh evidence of our genius. The " profs, " who had been surprised at us as Freshmen, fairly marveled now. The Juniors and Seniors had ceased to be jealous of our achievements, and simply looked on in silent wonder. Again we conquered on the field of athletics. As the wind carrieth away the chaff, so our " in- vincible eleven " swept before it the other teams. None could withstand their onrush, neither Senior. Junior nor Freshman — all alike perished, and we were rewarded this time with the cup. In baseball we were alike victorious, defeating the others and a second time winning the pennant. No other class in the history of the College has accomplished this during the same year. Good reason had we to be proud of our record. Thus gloriously did we end i mr Sophonn ire rear. Another well-earned vacation, and in September, 1909, we came again — not all. for many had left our ranks. Our number had fallen to twenty-three; but undaunted, we organized once more, with Robert J. Bing " ham, President; C. F. Johnson. Vice-President; Myrtle Johnson, Secretary. This year we have been more than ever successful in mental fields. We have mastered Horace and I ' liny; we have mastered Organic Chemistry; we have mastered Calculus. We now feel able to cope with the world. What terrors has Seniordom for us now? Our Junior year is gone. How dear we hold it! Xext year, classmates, will be fraught with anxiety — too full of classes that must lie taken and made. This year our work has been hard; but with all there has not come to us that feeling of responsibility, amounting at times almost to despair. that we must inevitably experience next year as Seniors. Xow we must part for a while, and when we meet again, it will be in the long-sought " promised land ' ' of Seniordom. In spite of our efforts. O Juniors, many opportunities to do greater things have been lost. Realizing this, let us each profit well by our mistakes and make of next year a grand and glorious success. Id tSTORTAX. 57 June iRoscs Sweet and faint as a whispered prayer, The fragrant incense fills the air; The chill of the spring-time passes by, June comes with the roses and azure sky, The song of birds, and the laughing stream The sights and sounds of a summer dream Linger and brood over field and wood, And over the valleys soft and dim, Like the echoed sound of a far-off hymn, Sounds the mocker ' s call thro ' the solitude Bright as the burning bush of old, The ash, blood-red through the thicket shines; And I hear the ripple of waters bold Blent with the murmur of the pines As I came thro ' fields of waving corn I passed a garden of roses fair. Kissed by the rosy lips of morn, The brightest and sweetest were blooming there Oh! thoughts of love! an angel ' s tear, By Love a form and substance given; Lost Eden ' s joys still lingering here, To woo the erring soul to heaven.

NSfeib In fact, the Sophomore Class may well be considered an f J example of what the Juniors and Seniors would like for Up their past lives to have been; and, indeed, we are told that the Preps and Freshmen even envy us. Revolving such thoughts in our minds, we have determined to make for ourselves an illustrious record, one of which not only we ourselves, but the College as well, will lie justly proud. Let us look at our past lives t justify the determination. As Freshmen, we worked as one man. ever ready to do our best. The professors, in order to encourage us. were continually com- plimenting us. and seeing how admirably the plan worked, have just contin- ued. Despite all this, the old habit of " busting ' , " which belongs to every class, still pursued us. Simply because the Seniors had attained a higher degree of wisdom than we poor " Freshies, " they decided to whip us. but we In ire it bravely. Through many a peri] have we passed and by each we were made stronger. Now we are Sophomores. We will peep into the various class-rooms. In " Trig. " the Sophomores are so brilliant that in consideration of ur intel- ligence Professor Burton even ottered to jump from the window on his head, if — . In Chemistry, regardless of the difficulty which must classes have, we looked so wise that our professor mentioned it to the Faculty. Realizing the prospect for short stories and not wishing to hurf any one ' s feelings, it was decided to abandon the Collegian for this year. In the Literary Societies and in the Y. M. C. A. the Sophomores hold prominent positions. On the Purple and White and the Bobashela Staff we have had representatives for two years. Though we have done well in every department, yet in athletics we have excelled everv class, and now we are the proud possessors of the cup. Such playing as the Sophomores did was never seen, even on Mount Olympus. However, much of our success is due to our efficient coach. Dr. Kern. As a whole, we are a class of which the College is exceedingly proud, and let us hope that when we enter life as individuals we will make equally bril- liant records.

At the sound of the chapel hell we scampered from our rooms off up the hill to the Alain Building, where devotional exercises were held. We entered the room, not knowing how nor where to go, but finally were seated in the spacious Auditorium directly in front of the " wise men. " After a somewhat lengthy exercise, the several announcements were made, which were of value to the old men hut which meant very little to the Freshmen, who, of course, had to ask again and again where each professor was to be found. We found the professors and were classified. The first few days were spent very energetically; no one had half enough to do. and all were really worried about how we would spend all of our time. However, this feeling soon wore away and our only fear was whether each of us had time to do our work. The thirst for knowledge was almost forgotten by the end of the second week and many of us began to think of home. How pleasant would be a draught of water from the old spring that trickled sparkling clear from beneath the shade of the old beech! How we longed to sit again on the back porch and listen to the charm of the evening mocking-bird as she sang a year ago! We little thought, when surrounded by this bliss of nature, how- happy we really were ; and we longed to get to college where we would not have to work. But, when once the boys had learned the ways of the college man, they made a wonderful showing in almost every phase of college life. It is true that we had no football team, but this may easily be explained. There are a great many high schools in this State and Louisiana which have no foot- ball, and the new men who were versed in the game were few: however, we furnished several of the Varsity team. The basket-ball team made a better showing, but won no pronounced distinction. The baseball team has not had an opportunity to show the ex- cellent qualities which we are sure it possesses. Though the Freshman Class has won no honors on the athletic field, yet we are sure we will. It has been very conspicuous in the literary societies, and it has made a place in the his- tory of Millsaps College. Xow. boys, let ' s determine to be here next year. The man who drops out will be missed, but he will miss more than we shall; we shall be dis- appointed if any one fails to return. Let ' s all shake hands again in the Y. M. C. A. hall on September 30th, 1010. 70 Co J££ s Miss Annie May Cooper Jackson. Miss. Miss Courtenay Clingan Jackson, Miss. Miss Nellie Dodds Jackson, Miss. Miss Lavada Honeycutt Downsville, La.

Were we called upon this question, we would say without hesitation few words of explanation to answer that it is the literary societies will not be amiss, since possibly the societies here hold a higher and more valued [dace than that held by such organ- izations at similar institutions. The average student coming to college is unskilled in oratory, the art of debating and public speaking, and is ignorant of all forms of parliamentary usage. He lacks grace and poise on the floor and feels embarrassed when called upon to express himself before a public body. A one-sided man. who is nothing less than a crank, can never succeed. He must be well rounded, having all of his faculties equally developed. A man may leave his Alma Afater knowing everythi ng that can be gotten from text-books, yet, unless he is able to express himself and put his knowledge into practical use, he is a failure. For one to be a success he must be able to think quickly ami concisely while on his feet. He must be able to maintain his mental equilibrium while being attacked by his opponents and to think and act quickly on the spur of the moment. A knowledge of parliamentary rules and usages is invaluable. The soci- eties offer unusual advantages for attaining this knowledge. The same par- liamentary rules are used as those in the United States Congress and the members are thoroughly drilled and acquainted with all the technical points. Perhaps the most valuable course outside of that laid down in the curricu- lum is the four years ' course in college politics which the societies offer. Here it is that the embryo governors and senators first learn the shufflings of the political cards. Politics is made reality and the experience thus gained fits a student for the great political problems peculiar to either Church or State. To meet these needs, the literary societies were organized. Of these organizations we have four. The first to be organized was the Galloway, named after that illustrious divine and statesman, Charles Betts Galloway. The Society showed its determination ever to follow the example of this good and great man by wisely choosing as its motto, " Know Thy Opportunity. " This Society prospered and soon became a great factor in college life. At one time she held the record of having won more medals for the same length of time than any other society in the South. Two of her loyal sons took both the M. I. O. A. medals and the Southern Intercollegiate honors. The next society to be organized was the Lamar, named in memory of our own Lamar, whose name is a synonym for goodness and greatness. Along with her sister society, the Lamar throve rapidly, holding aloft on her banner the motto, " Nulla palma sine labore. " For the last five years she has sent representatives to the M. I. O. A. contest and her members have always won their share of the College honors. The students in the Preparatory Department, seeing the good to be derived from societies and feeling some embarrassment at taking part in the two societies composed of older students, determined to organize a society composed wholly of " preps. " The organization was promptly effected and it was named in honor of the brilliant Prentiss. From the beginning, much interest has been manifested in its workings and it has done much to create a live interest in speaking and debating. Another result of it has been the offering of a gold medal at Commencement to the best speaker in the preparatory classes. The Co-eds., ever alive to their own interest as well as to the welfare of the College, felt the need of some organization whereby they might train themselves in declaiming, education and in literary research. As a result, the Minnehaha Society was organized. Meeting weekly, with every Co-ed. as a member, the Society is doing a great work. The Secretary prepares an excellent program for each meeting, and marked progress is being made. R. H. R. S3 Xamar literary Society OFFICERS PRESIDENT First Term Second Term Third Term Fourth Term J.

Ah! you have heard it all. And now you are in Arcadie, nay, never look around, For he will wake who looks behind, And he who wakes will never find The groves again of Arcadie. (Hush! ' t is a magic sound.) In Arcadie the gods are good and Fate is very fair. Tomorrow as Today shall be while through the flowers ye fare; And never Yesterday shall smile, and point, and smile again — The Lotus Flower blossoms there, whereby to banish pain. So rest you soft in Arcadie (see, the bright river runs So fast away), and watch the glow Of moons of opal, clouds of snow, And blazing suns (in Arcadie there are no setting suns). Straight runs the road to Arcadie, ah! straight, and very long. One can not see the groves of Pan, nor hear the Dryad ' s song. One is so tired, and one must rest. Here blooms no Lotus Flower, And one remembers Arcadie — Arcadie for an hour. I ' m glad you are in Arcadie. (Nay, do not look at Care, But watch the water ' s rippling waves And hear old Pan play merry staves), I ' m glad you are in Arcadie. (God keep you happy there.) Ichabod Crane. 89 Gbc professor, tbe (Sirl ano tbc Grout T was August. The warm summer sun beat down caressingly upon the little hostelry perched high on the side of the moun- tain, half hidden in the trees. The Inn was an old-time, two- story building, surrounded on all sides by a spacious gallery where the guests were wont to assemble and enjoy the ex- hilarating air and superb scenery. In the front of the Inn, though farther down the valley, dashed a spark ling little rock-strewn stream of some twenty feet in width. Behind, the mountain rose sheer three hun- dred feet, ending in a hopeless tangle of sandstone and brambles. In the val- ley below, but a little distance above the hotel, was the pool, pure, cold and deep, a noble home for a noble fish. Into this angler ' s heaven, by purest chance, wandered Gordon Campbell, our hero. Gordon was a true representative of the old South, well fixed in this world ' s goods and, above all, a master angler, lie received a cordial handshake from old Craighead, the proprietor, and having been introduced to those sitting on the porch, was soon made to feel perfectly at home. After a hasty bath and a change of linen, he rejoined the group on the veranda. There he entered into a very interesting fish talk with one of his new-found friends, a certain Colonel Warren, a rheumatic, formerly a veritable Prince of Anglers. When supper was over, the Colonel introduced Gordon to his daughter, and — Bingo ! he was in love. After the first shock was over, all was plain sailing; they swapped experiences, talked of each other and the hotel. When lie had completely won her confidence, she told him that she was in great trouble. Her father had used every possible means to catch a certain old trout which had for years defied the utmost endeavors of every one, and one night when the crowd was a trifle full, some one jocosely asked the Col- onel what he would give for the fish. To which banter the Colonel replied that he would give that which he prized more than anything on earth. This they naturally took to mean his daughter, and from that time on old Speckle had been constantly besieged by eager fishermen, some infatuated by her own personal charms, and othe rs by the Colonel ' s bank account. The next morning Gordon set out for the pool. When he arrived there he saw a clerical-looking old gentleman sitting gingerly on a rock, holding in one hand an old cane pole, while in the other he held a book which he was perusing eagerly. Gordon bade him good-morning, and receiving an indiffer- ent reply, calmly ignored him. and proceeded to unpack his tackle. He care- 90 fully selected a fly and prepared to east. A single twist of the wrist, a low whirr of the reel, and the fly sailed clean and true. One beautiful cast after another, but all to no avail ; then he began to change his flies until all were gone. He tried a grasshopper and, in fact, every device and trick known to anglers, but old Speckle would not be coaxed. Just as he left, however, as if in disdain, the great fish rose, gracefully cleared the water, a huge animate flash against a deep emerald background. Me stood for a minute enthralled, marveling, but then his wonder changed to deep heartfelt determination as he slowly wended his way homeward. Two weeks passed by ; he visited the pool daily, but was not so fortunate as even to see his Majesty. Gordon was in desperation, the girl in tears. He proposed elopement, but she would not consent. Then he appealed to her father ' s common sense, and she to his affections, but all to no avail, as it seemed that the Colonel would not break his word of honor. One morning, after he had been casting steadily for several hours, he decided that he had enough of it all; that the old man was a crank, and the girl a flirt. As he was reeling in his line it caught on a floating twig and he gave it a vicious jerk. It broke loose and struck him a stinging blow in the face. Infuriated, he snapped the leader in two and hurled the flv with all of his might into the middle of the pool. He did not know that after he left the big fish rose and took his fly, or that the old Professor, sitting on the bank, had observed it and made this great discovery — that old Speckle would not take a fly which was attached to a visible line. It was the work of a few- moments to hollow out a cork and fill it with several feet of heavy silk line. Then he fastened one end firmly to the cork, the other to the fly, which hung on the side of the cork as if attempting to climb it. lie pushed the cork out into the pond and waited. It worked like a charm ; the big fish rose, struck it and disappeared, trailing the line. He reached for the cork with his pole, but it was jerked rudely out of his reach and whirled frantically in every di- rection in the pool. He then ran to the hotel for help. Gordon, in the meantime, was walking disconsolately homeward. He had made up his mind to leave that very night and forget it all, and doubtless he would have done so had he not seen Old " Foureyes " rushing franticallv through the woods. His suspicions were aroused and he hastened back to the pool. There, in the middle, was the cork, lashing the water as if infested by some demon. He took in the situation at a glance and dived into the pool, quickly gained the cork, and swimming, towed his prize to the bank. Twenty minutes later, he was the happiest man in nineteen states. Motto : A little swimming is better than great learning. A. A. G. Jr. 91 Noting flDen ' s Christian association OFFICERS J. W. Broom President R E. Steen Vice-President W. C. Coggix Secretary D. W.

The supreme object of our Association is to unite all stu- dents who desire to strengthen the spiritual life and influence of the College ; to promote growth in Christian character, and fellowship in aggressive Christian work; to train its members for Christian service, and to lead them to devote their lives to Jesus Christ where they may accomplish the most for the kingdom of God. ( )ne of our greatest advantages this year is that we had the State Bible Study Institute here in our own hall at the beginning of the session. This Institute was composed of delegates from all the colleges of the State and some few from the most prominent high schools ; in addition to these there were the strongest leaders in Southern V. M. C. A. work. The new inspiration received from this Convention, together with the enthusiasm and training that our delegates, D. R. Yasson and R. E. Steen, received at the International Student Volunteer Convention, at Rochester, Xew York, has made our Association capable of doing a greater work in Bible and Mission Study than it has ever before done. The crowning beauty of the Association is that it has a care for the whole man — mental, physical and spiritual. Where the work counts for most, how- ever, is in the moral culture and uplift. In the bi-weekly devotional meetings the speakers discuss such practical questions as will not fail to bear directly or indirectly on the character of each man present. From a systematic study of the Bible and a world of missions we learn of the principles of Christianity and our obligation to the heathen. Excellent opportunities are afforded throughout the whole session for personal work, but, during the spring cam- paign, special efforts are made to deepen the spiritual life and lead the un- saved to Christ. Thus the Y. M. C. A. attempts to reach every man in College, no matter how indifferent he may be toward religion. Under the capable leaders that we have, we can not and will not fail. J.

" i OWARD the close of the afternoon of February 13th, Eliza- beth Anne stood at an upper window in one of the line of comfortable-looking, vine-clad houses known to the univer- sity students as Professors ' Row, and peered out upon the winter landscape. Through the bare trees of the campus she could discern the huge hulk of Academic Hall, with its two tall towers half hidden by the swirling snowrlakes. which eddied around them at the will of the wind. For a moment she tried to see the hands upon the clock in the nearest tower, hut the storm proved too dense. " Surely the weather man has been disappointed in love, " she reflected. A sudden gust of wind, stronger than usual, whirled the snowflakes in wild confusion ; the win- dow rattled, and the ivy seemed to shiver and shrink closer to the protecting wall of the house. " It looks more like St. Nicholas ' s weather than St. Val- entine ' s, and as for poor little Cupid — ugh ! it makes one fairly shiver even tn think of his having to he out in such weather as this. " As she turned from the window her eye was caught by a glow of color on the opposite side of the rapidly darkening room. She took the roses up one I v one, and sinking with her fragrant armful into an easy chair before the fire, was soon lost in contemplation of their exquisite coloring, the dusky red of which blended well with her own clear, dark complexion. From the roses her thoughts turned to their sender, and she remembered her indefinite en- gagement with him for the evening and wondered to what extent his gift might be considered the forerunner of a proposal. Her conclusion, born of an experience that included not only many Cupid ' s days, but also many Com- mencements and rare nights in June, was that all the omens indicated this night as the fateful time — at any rate she would be gowned to suit the occa- sion should it arise. Several hours later, at the sound of the bell, there was a rustle from above as of wings, and Elizabeth Anne, enveloped in a diaph- anous cloud of silk and white chiffon, a couple of roses at her belt, floated down the wide stairway. " I ' m so glad you ' ve come early. " she said, as she opened the door. As the 100 visitor came into the hall shaking the snow from a long, heavy overcoat, she started back involuntarily. " You ! " " Yes, me, " lie answered, coming ' forward smiling and with outstretched hand. " How are you? " He hung his hat and coat on the rack and, like one familiar with his surroundings, turned toward the parlor. " This is not a very cheerful reception 1 am giving you, " she said as she reached up to turn on the light. " Everybody has gone to the lecture, and I alone am left to — to do the duties of host, " she concluded hurriedly. " 1 have no fault to find with the reception, provided von do not change it by turning on the light. The firelight and the light from the hall will do, won ' t they? But why are you not at the lecture, too? " " Oh, it ' s too cold for me, " she answered lightly, " and besides, I ' d rather stay here and talk to you. " " Very kind of you. I ' m sure, but I am inclined to doubt — " " Now render an account of yourself, " she interrupted. " Ulysses has re- turned from his four years ' wandering, and 1 wonder what marvelous adven- tures he has passed through, what Circes ' allurements he has withstood, and whether he has as yet listened to some siren ' s voice? " " And does he return to find Penelope perplexed with many suitors as of yore ? " " Looks like it, doesn ' t it? " she replied, giving a comprehensive glance over the empty twilight room. " But don ' t talk about me; tell me about yourself. Where did you come from and what did you come for? " " Why, to see you, of course. " Her surprise and pleasure at seeing him had not quite crowded from Eliz- abeth Anne ' s mind her thoughts of the afternoon, and this, together with the interest that a woman always takes in a man who has once proposed to her, may have caused her to suspect a hidden meaning in what had in reality been merely a jesting answer. A troubled look came into her face, and if we cen- sure her for allowing the ' moth and candle idea to Hit through her mind, we must at least give her the credit of a sincere resolve to save the moth a second singeing. She moved slightly and repeated with more insistence than the question seemed to require, " But sure enough, what did you come for? " Conant guessed the meaning of her nervous movement and of the impa- tience in her question. His friends believed that he had forgot his college love affair with the President ' s daughter, and he intended that Elizabeth Anne should believe it also — there was no use in making his visit unpleasant to both of them. As for himself, he had learned to accept his fate with philosophic 1(11 good-nature. There would at least he no harm in tantalizing her a bit, and so he replied with a serious smile, " I really came to see you. " The remark did not demand an answer and she made none. Though she had heard from him only at long intervals since his graduation, she had often wondered in a vague way just why she had refused him. Perhaps the blame should have been laid upon her environment, the kaleidoscopic change of col- lege life, and the continual shifting of friendships which the return of each session had brought; perhaps some other Senior, now forgotten, had occupied more of her thoughts at that particular time; perhaps she had thought he had not meant it; or perhaps, in the suddenness and excitement of her first pro- posal, she had not really known her own heart. It was to this last explanation that she usually returned, if not with genuine regret, at least with something very near akin ti i it. The shadows of old memories darkened her eyes and cast their spell over her, carrying her back into the days when, hand in hand, the best of friends and capital comrades, they had romped through the Freshman year, and so on through all the varying light and shade of their college days, until one quiet June night. She could still hear the faint notes of the violins, softened 1 the distance, as they wailed out the Miserere of Trovatore ; and she re- membered that the voices of the promenaders had reached her as a whispered hum mingled with snatches of gay laughter from some mystic fairy-land all aglow with many-colored lights. I lis faltering attempts to lead up to the sub- ject, at first misunderstood; her frightened endeavor to prevent the confes- sion ; and then the sudden rush of his broken sentences and low, tense voice ; the few words of explanation; the pause; and then the parting, " always to be good friends, " — all the details of her first proposal came before her. and lost in reverie, she was glad without knowing why. Conant had been indulging in reveries too, and the past, intensified into " what might have been " by the present comfortable scene, came strongly be- fore him. Apparently, he was watching with idle interest two small twigs, which after blazing merrily up had sparkled out their short existence, and over whose glowing core a dull, ashen gray was now slowly creeping. As the twigs crumbled he roused himself and added apologetically. " The heat of an open fire is about the nearest thing 1 know to the ' poppied warmth ' of sleep. I remember that it used to affect me somewhat similarly when 1 was here during our college days; at any rate, we often didn ' t have much to say. " " Yes, " she replied mechanically. " When does your train leave? " In her haste to turn the conversation as far as possible from their former friendship liii she had not noticed until too late the seeming discourtesy in her question. The man smiled quizzically at her and started to reply, but was interrupted by her hurried apology. Her blushes deepened with her confusion, and in her eagerness to explain her mistake the slight formality of her bearing- toward him, which had been momently becoming more difficult to maintain, dissolved as if it had been a cloud. She felt in an indefinite way that she owed him amends for her un- gracious remark, and this seemed to her to lie the easiest way to make them — so easy, in fact, that she did not stop to debate the question, but drifted almost without volition back to their old-time relation, and took up their friendship as easily as if the four intervening years had not been. In the midst of her explanations, the university clock with storm-muffled strokes told the hour of eight. The bell seemed a long way off. and both of them ceased talking and leaned slightly forward, listening intently and softly counting each stroke under their breath as the sound came dully through the wind and snow. There was a slight pause after the last stroke. " Eight, " he said, straightening up; " and since the amendment to your previous question, one more hour of grace. But you, " he continued, resu- ming the conversation at the point where it had ceased, " do you usually array yourself in silks and satins upon the mere probability of a chance caller, and on such a night as this? I dare not hope that my good fair} ' gave you thoughts of me and wdiispered that I might come. My good fairy has left me — if, in- deed, I ever had one. Had I not been so deeply concerned with my own pleas- ure, past experience would have warned me ere this that you are expecting another caller here tonight. Upon whom, may 1 ask, has my worthy mantle fallen, and when may we expect his arrival? " He had expected a playful reproof, or at least a protest, but she merely replied, " I have no definite engagement for tonight and — and 1 hope that there will be no callers. " " Thank you, so do I. But I don ' t deserve any such good fortune — do you know that this is St. Valentine ' s Eve? " " Yes. " A faint wave of color swept over her face as she remembered the roses in the corner of the room. " Who is he, Lizbeth? I am interested in him. " " 1 don ' t believe he exists, Dick. " she said slowly. " Of course not ! And I suppose if it were any other person than me to whom you were talking, you would maintain that he never did exist. " He paused a moment, but she gave no sign of annoyance. The silence intensified 103 the roar oi the storm outside. Listening to it, he quoted mure to himself than to her: " Never on such a night have lovers met, the frost-wind blows Like Line ' s alarum pattering the sharp sleet Against the window-panes; St. Valentine ' s moon hath set! " " Valentine ' s Day seems to be n your mind. " " No; just a hit of ' The Eve of St. Agnes ' that has been running in my head all daw Hut perhaps it ' s on your mind, too; didn ' t he send you any valentine? " " Neither did you, " she returned, and wondered at the impulse which made her ashamed to confess the roses which she was wearing. " Why, I have brought myself. " he laughed. " Will you accept the gift? " " Yes, " she responded simply. Hitherto it had been with him the true word which is spoken in jest, and he had taken a grim pleasure in the double entendre. Something in her reply, perhaps the tone of her voice, reminded him that two might play at the same game. Yet he hardly dared to hope; still less to reason, for that would hut emphasize his folly, lie looked at her eagerly, wistfully, and if she had had any lingering doubt as to the continuance ol his love for her it vanished in the moment. With a woman ' s intuition in matters of the heart, she saw, even before he himself was fully aware of it. what was coming, and instinctively assumed the defensive. lie rose from the chair and bent over her. She shrank hack and put out her hand as if in defense. " No, Lick — no, not vet. " For in Dick ' s eves there shone the look of the castaway who after long and weary watching catches the first glimpse of a sail afar oft ' . There was no sound in all the house save the crackling of the oak logs in the fireplace; a sudden gust rattled the win- dows fiercely and drove the snowtlakes past the house in a hurrying cloud.. Both of them glanced involuntarily toward the window and thought of the storm outside. " Sudden a thought came like a full-blown rose. Flushing his brow, and in his pained heart .Made purple riot. " From out of Keats ' s love storv of " ages long ago " there came before him the image of " young Porphyro with heart on fire for Madeline. " " J lark! ' tis an elfin storm from faery land. Of haggard seeming, hut a boon indeed: 104 Let us away, my love, with happy speed; There arc no ears to hear nor eyes to see. " ' The key turns, and the door upon its hinges groans, " ' And they are gone — These lovers tied away into the storm. " A. K.

A. Kern, in No- vember, 1909, formed the Kit-Kat Club, which had for its object the promotion of these ends. The Club soon saw that affiliation with Sigma Upsilon, whose ideals were similar to their own, would not only give them national prestige but would greatly aid them in carrying out their plans. They therefore petitioned the General Coun- cil of Sigma Upsilon for a charter, which was granted them in February, 1910; its reception, thanks to the hospitality of Dr. G. D. Davidson, was duly cele- brated at the Royal Falstaff Cafe on the evening of February 25th. Sigma Upsilon was founded at the University of the South in 1906, and from the beginning has made its requirements for admission so strict that membership therein is universally regarded as a much-coveted honor. The Millsaps chapter takes its name from a literary club of the age of Queen Anne which met at the tavern of Christopher Kat — whence its name — and which numbered among its members Addison, Steele, Congreve, Dryden, Pope, and many another eighteenth-century writer. By an odd coincidence the Kit-Kat Club, whose membership was limited to seven, formed the seventh chapter of Sigma Upsilon. Thus far its success in stimulating literary appreciation and endeavor and in furthering literal " } - comradeship has been remarkable and augurs well for the future influence of the Club upon the literary life at Millsaps. 126 ALMA MATER MILLSAPS Air, " My Bonnie " All over the land of the cotton And down where the magnolias stand, The fame of our dear alma mater Is ringing far over the land.

MILLSAPS Alma mater, dear old Millsaps, Loyal sons are we ; Our fond hearts are thine alone And evermore shall be. Proud art thou in classic beauty Of thy noble past, With thy watchwords, Honor, Duty, Thy high fame shall last.

Sayage 138 a s w athletics nIE present session has been a highly successful one from an athletic view-point. Much of this success is due to Professor S. G. Noble, who lias labored with untiring energy for high- class, spirited athletics at Millsaps. It has been due to him that the schedules have been posted on time, that the various managers have done their work properly, and that the affairs of the Athletic Association have been conducted on a firm and business-like basis. It was also through the efforts of Professor Noble that Millsaps has been allowed to participate in the intercollegiate track meet at the State Ora- torical Contest. At the opening of the football season the Freshman and Junior Classes failed to put teams in the field, thus leaving the Seniors, the Sophs and the Preps to contest fur the cup. Professor Noble took charge of his Preps early in the year, and began to explain to them that a football was an inflated oval, that it would not bite, and that they need not be afraid of breaking it by fall- ing on it. Since Dr. Kern ' s two-time champions had disbanded, he was in- duced to coach the Sophomores, who were anxious to atone for their igno- minious record of ' 08. The Seniors were confident of victory, but merely " for the looks of the thing " they invited Professor Burton to coach them; and in a very few afternoons the " new-professor " informed them in unmistakable language that they did not know the rudiments of the game and that if they expected to make a showing in the race worthy of their name and Class, they would be compelled to show a marked improvement. The truth of this proph- ecy was afterwards demonstrated. In the first game it was seen that the Sophs, of whom very little had been expected, were going to finish strong, and it was freely predicted that they would have to be reckoned with before the close of the season. The prediction gradually became a fact with each succeeding game, and when the schedule was completed the cup was a warded to the team of ' 12, who had gone through the season without a single defeat. Varsity material was very plentiful, and the committee could have selected two Varsity teams of almost equal strength. The team which was selected is a representative one and with proper coach- 140 ing could hold its own with the best. The games were played on the new athletic field and were, without an exception, well attended. It would be no exaggeration to say that the past football season was the most successful since class games were instituted at Millsaps. After a lapse of two years, interclass basket-ball was resumed and for the first time every class was represented by a team. The schedule was short enough and the games were close enough to keep interest and enthusiasm keyed up to the highest pitch. The Preps, by hard practice and consistent work, made the highest percentage and won the pennant. Professor Swartz has put new life into tennis since he took charge of the club. There are more tennis players in college now, and more interest is taken in the game, than at any previous time in our history. In baseball the Freshman Class has an abundance of first-class material and at present promises to be the favorite in the contest for the class championship. Preparations arc also being made for Field Day, and Professor Noble is also hard at work upon the candidates for track honors both here and at the M. I. O. A. contest. By way of conclusion, a word of praise should be accorded Professor Noble, Professor Burton and Dr. Kern for the enthusiasm and interest with which they have helped to make this a successful year in athletics. The Ath- letic Association and the entire student body are very grateful to them for their work. Ma} ' future teams secure as successful coaches! A. B.
