Dr. D. C. Hull. I he choice of a successor to Bishop Murrah was a matter ot serious import, not only to the College and the patronizing Conferences, but to the cause of education throughout the State. It is needless to say that it was regarded with the keenest interest by both undergraduates and Alumni. I he Board of Trustees, therefore, acted wisely in taking time for action. Every eligible educator in the Church who was thought to be available passed under review, and their qualifications were carefully canvassed before a decision was reached. The time and the conditions called for no ordinary man. The College, under the wise management of Dr. Murrah, was already an assured success along the line on which it was originally pro- jected, and it could not afford to lake a step backward by making a mistake in the choice ol his successor. Moreover, important changes in the college organization were necessary to (it it for the larger held which it was to occupy, and this called for a man well versed m school methods and discipline, of mature experience, in full sympathy with young men, and thoroughly devoted to the w ' ork of teaching and character-building. The choice made by the Trustees has already been demonstrated: President Hull is " making good. " Not least among his assets in early life is the tact that he was brought up in the wholesome atmosphere of a Christian country home. 1 o these advantages of heredity and environment, he has added the important third factor of success m life, which has been called " individual self-assertion. " Of the last, while it has never been offensively exhibited, tradition has preserved a notable instance in which it is said that once upon a time during vacation he routed a former teacher, who had done him an injus- tice, by a strenuous appeal to the arguTientum ad hominem. Under changed relations this might be thought a dangerous precedent, if his broad shoulders and athletic build did not warn an offender that it might be best to let by-gones be by-gones. In the following ex- tract from the New Orleans Christian Advocate of June 30, 1910, the main facts in Presiden Hull ' s life are so admirdably given that we may be pardoned for quoting them in full: — " iMr. Hull was brought up on the farm in the county of his nativity, and attended the common schools maintained about the neighborhood where his parents resided. He joined the M. E. Church, South, at fourteen years of age under the pastorate ot Re . . S. Lagrone. In 1890 and 1891, he was a teacher in Choctaw County. He entered the Agricultural and Mechanical College in September, 1881, and was graduated with first honors in June, 1895. While taking his collegiate course, he was especially active in religious work, and made his influence strongly felt in the oung Mens Christian .Asso- ciation. L ' pon leaving College he taught for several years in leading public schools, mak- ing a fine record as an instructor: since 1902 he has been one of the Faculty of the .A. and M. College, where his faithfulness and efficiency have won him high distinction. He i L ' BOB 15nEL • 1911 -Sc S has done considerable post-graduate work, having taken the Master of Science degree at his Alma Mater, and pursued courses of study two summers at the University of Chicago. Mr. Hull is closely identified with the educational interests of Mississippi, being Vice- President of the State Teachers ' Asosciation, and has wide acquaintance among the educators of the State, by whom he is held in high esteem. He has been a licensed local preacher since 1 890. and is a speaker of great force and impressiveness in the pulpit and upon the platform. " With such a past, with his powers at their best, with the confidence and esteem of the teachers of the State, and with the enthusiastic and loyal support of the students and faculty. President Hull already enjoys an earnest of a brilliant career. The Bobashcla, therefore, extends to him its greeting in the hope that he may live long to demonstrate his gifts as " a wise builder, " known far and wide as a " maker ol men. " Mam 1a.

" 29 1 - ' •sr BOB ISMEL i- 1911 " Kcitorv of Class of 1911 OST strange lo relate, 1911, unlike all other classes that ever went through college, has never been given to proclaiming its manifold merits and achieve- ments from the housetops. Why? For as the " loud laugh speaks t e acant mird, " so does the shrill voice procla ' m those virtues which, Alas! are so sadly m ' ssing. The truly great show their superiority by deeds, un- heeding the envious glances and acts full of malicious intent of their inferiors. Four years ago there came together some four score and ten persons who organized themselves into a class At that time they weve m " r= infants and knew nothing cf the ways of college life. The Seniors called them " foolish little Freshies, " but they uttered not a word in reply. This term, however, was not applied to them, when, a few months later, their football team met and defeated every team in college without once having its goal crossed- The next year we came back as Sophomores, feeling rather mature in knowledge. We no longer feared the " Hyenas " which had chased us when we were Freshmen. Our class was organized promptly, and remembering the achievements of the previous year, we determined that we would again excel in the class-room and upon the athletic field. This dream came true; in our studies we became famous, and upon the gridiron we were again supreme. Our football team was the envy and wonder of the other classes. In that year we were introduced to Dr Sullivan and his wonderful Chemical Laboratory. We did nothing that would interest the scientific world, but we interested our teacher very much. As we came back to school in our Junior year, we felt like " old men: " we could look back upon a work well dr ne. and for our stron j hearts the future held no terrors. When we counted our f- rf-es we found that our ran ' s had been thinned until there were • nlv a score left to carry rn t e fight Th ' s saddened us somewhat, but then we remem- -erpd that sun rir-ritv dep-pded UD " n merit and nualify rather than UD- n m- ' -e numbers Bein? unabl " f- " Pt rut our I ' sual ball team, we had to be contend wii ' i doing mental gym- nastics. Th ' s last vear we came back waUine w ' th a firm and difnified tread The years that had passed seemed onlv a dream: the future held promise of great things. X hen the class was seated in the co p(pd S°nior section of the Chaoel, we ga7ed around and f " U-d that Sf m " few faces were crone, but these remaining we Inew had been " weighed m th. ' balance and found not wantin? " We have done nothing unusually great this year, but we have tried to act our part in such a way that the college will be bettered by our presence. In all things we have stood for the betterment of our beloved college, and for the inculcating of higher ideals. The time is fast approaching when the class of 1911 will be no more; when we will have to go forth into the world each to fight his own battle, and each to make his own mark. Heretofore we have been treading a beaten path, hard at times to follow, but still the way has been blazed by those who have gone before. Now we have come to the 30 )g I I 3 BOB 15nEL i-l9ll C ' ' ' J( point where the paths diverge; each path leads in a different direction, and each will have to follow his own path. For four years we have stood together, and in that time a spirit cf fellowship has grown up between the members of our class. We hope for a continua- tion of that spirit. Somewhere out there in the future that stretches before us, after we have left the walls of this college, we shall fall upon the words I write here now, and something of the hope and promise of this day will thrill us then. Whatever little dif- ferences that the years have placed between us shall vanish like the morning mists, and we shall feel ourselves bound by links stronger than steel. Now, as each member of this class goes out into the world, let him remember what 1911 has stood for in the past, and let him ever be true to the ideal which has been set before him. Each one has a work to do, and as we wander down life ' s rugged pathway this thought shall be paramount in our minds: — " 1 live for these who o e me; Whose hearts are kind and true ; For the Heaven that smiles above me. And awaits my spirit, too; For the cause that lacks assistance; For the wrongs that need resistance; For the future in the distance; And the good that I can do. " R. C. Beirrv, Historian. Eeminisrrnrrfi Chapter I. We often look back on the troubles We had just four years ago. Whe n the class of eleven were Freshies ; And all of us certainly know, That We took Ph. B. for the Hist ' ry, Some the B. S. for the Math, And some the A. B., because " Daddy " Had already chosen the path. Ah, How we " sprachten der Deutsche, " And busted m Latin and Greek. At first, though, we thought it quite jolly. Those seventeen hours a week! Chapter II. We then became wise little Sophies — Trig, and Analytics were a bore. We busted and busted and busted. H20 from our eyes would just pour. But, French and Chem. were the limit. And did we our German adore? Yet always on gridiron and diamond We certainly piled up the score! And, Then came the Sophomore story With pains and troubles we ' d write; And often, ' tis sad to relate it We did it laic Salurdav nighl! Chapter III. We next were enrolled as wise Juniors. We worked until we were ill Learned all about dear carbon atoms And made H2S with a will. And Learned a great deal about Hist ' ry, What Doc. Burgess meant by a " state. " 32 T " BOBnSMEL i • 191 -S t We studied about composition, Read Beorvulf both early and late. Then We became very fond of those specials. Our money disappeared like the wmd. A more generous set of young students, The faculty never could find. Chapter IV. Then we came back in September, And proudly occupied section en " . And after much cramming and busting We knew our tasks were most done. Yet During this year full of pleasure. There was mingled a tinge of regret. That school days were over forever. And we knew we would never forget, That We love our dear Alma Mater, Her royal old Purple and White, May her banner float proudly forever. An emblem of honor and right!

The Class of ' 11, I am exceedingly sorry that I shall not be able to attend the reunion, but owing to a pressing business engagement must beg to be excused. Am still happy and untethered by the entangling bonds of matrimony, and if our business continues to increase as up to date, will deem myself quite satisfied with life. Albert Green. February 16. 1931. Dear Classmates, When I left the walks of Millsaps, I thought that I was best fitted for the profes- sion of law. I practiced law for fifteen years with great success, but I was not satisfied, so I am now here, in what was once the jungles of Africa, as a Missionary, and am doing much towards the betterment of our black brothers. R. C. Berry. Bismark, North Dakota, February 14, 1931 Dear ( lass, I am enjoying a good law practice. I am in partnerhsip with my uncle. Still live in single blessedness.

Dear Class of ' II, Twenty years ago this very day we received our last kindness from the faculty of Millsaps; also their blessing with f erhaps more feeling than was customary. Bless their hearts! What patient people they were! For quite a number of years I have been the junior partner of a fairly successful law firm, and am enjoying life to the fullest. But the old fossils, loafing about in tl e club rooms here, aren ' t the fellows that the old time bunch were, who occupied Section I in 191 1.

Dear Class of ' 1 1 , I am sorry to say that it will be impossible for me to crme to the reunion this time. Things at the farm are in such a state that I cannot get off.

I was indeed sorry to learn that this, our fourth reunion, had proved a failure for I fear we can hardly have another. The work here is absorbing and my success has been far greater than I had hoped for. I refer you to the current number of the " Atlantic iV:cnthly " for my latest article on its progress.

S- I BOBnsnEL -IQII C I I J( HatD Class J istorp HOSE who are members of the Law department have not been associated together as long as the members of the Senior Class of the Literary de- partment. Nevertheless, there exists a feeling of fnendship and brotler- hood among the members of the class that will long be remembered. In fact it would be hard to forget some of the legal lights; Hair, for instance, with his extremely ruddy complexion cultivated by over-much blushing; or Reuben Gul- ledge who has developed an enormous intellect, if we are to judge from the size of his caranium — he only wears a seven and three quarter hat; or Brot! er Saxon, who sustained the loss of a limb in a saw mill accident, but who, his fellow students think, can by his superior head-work overbalance any injury he may have sustained; or Truly with hs ever-recurring smile; and by no means let me forget to mention the name of " Bull " Green, that all- ' round man speaking from a rounder ' s standpoint; and Hopkins, who, altho from Sullivan ' s Holloy, calm and unscarred, and in fact in good physical condition. Of the twenty-three members of the Law Class, 11, three are married men. and other twenty-three have been skidooed by the fairer sex; three came from other southern states, than our own, while Mississippi is anxious to get rid of the remaining twenty-three; three are insurance agents, and the other twenty-three are self-appointed skidoo ' s; three are stenographers, while the other twenty-three take great pride in the fact that they are someday to be dictators. There are in the class four college graduates, two of the L ni- versity, one of the A. M. and one from Millsaps. Besides the above mentioned insti- tutions, V. M. L, Sewanee, and Mississippi College have representatives in the class. The members of the present Law Class hail from states all the way from North Carolina to Louisiana. They have followed occupations all the way from driving oxen up to chauffeuring automobiles. A great number have been farmers, others school teachers, and others stenographers. The greatest number have been laboring assiduously to keep out of work. Amongst our classmates we find some of the handsomest and some of the uglist, some of the biggest sports and some of the untidiest in wearing apparel, some of the deepest thinkers and some of the shallowest brains, some of the greatest rounders and some of the most modest and moral of men, some of the most lax in the spending of their collateral and some who would skin a flea for its hide and tallow. We depart now from lectures and quises and enter the starv ' ing period. May we all endure it and come out all the more benefited by the fast. " Old Grimes is dead, that good old man.

The record of this class is exceedingly gratifying to parents, members of the Faculty, and to the class itself. No doubt these brilliant records have been used as illustrations of the splendid work re- quired of Millsaps students; however, we hope that one will not loose sight of the fact that this is distinctly the individual record ot the class of ' 12. In 1908, sixty timid Freshmen assembled, each ready to try his fate as a college man. The tree of knowledge seemed to have been shaken in our midst, and with amazing rapidity did we collect the fruit. With proud heads did we pass over Trig, and Analyt. as if they were mere trifles scarcely demanding an anxious thought. Now a few are pursuing the study of Calculus with more than ordinary success. In Latin our transla- tions have easily rivalled those of our friends. Hinds and Noble. In Chemistry we have baffled Dr. Sullivan in finding a suitable name for some of the newly discovered sub- stances. Surely no one would be so heartless as to accuse the Juniors of being " short ' along the line of contributions to the College, for we certainly have taken an extraordinary number of Special Exams. For two consecutive years we have won the Football Championship; also on the Varsity teams the class of ' 1 2 has always had a larger number of representatives than any other class. The two best Athletes in the College last years were 1912 men. Athletics is by no means our only fort, for we enjoy the distinction of being the first class for many years to send a man as M. I. O. A. representative in his Junior year. When one wishes to hear a good speech, instead of buying a ticket to hear some prominent speaker from a distant state, one simply goes to the Millsaps Literary Society Halls where a Junior is going to speak, for the Juniors have always been foremost as orators and as debaters. We are proud to say that our class has produced some of the most successful officer? of the Purple and White staff, especially along the hne of Business Managers. On the Bobashela Staff our men have been at the forefront, acting with their chara cteristics en- thusiasm. As for the Y. M. C. A., we have as many true Christian workers as any class can boast. With this brilliant record already made, now that we are about to enter that much dreamed-of realm of Seniordom, may our future accomplishments even excell our past and equal that of our predecessors! " Let not the illusion of thy senses Betray thee to deadly olfenses. Be strong! Be brave! Be true! " N. C. D. — Historian. S- ' ■sr = BOB 1SMELri-l9ll J3( S) opi)omore Class COLORS Red and White.

But when there is gathered together in one body so much knowledge, so much physical prowess, so much beauty, and so much ability-in-general as assembled m the Freshman section on Septem- ber 29,. 1909, — " the world should listen then — as I am listening now. " Allow us, therefore, gentle reader, to pour into the expectant auricular orifice of the universe a brief account of our name and fame. Pursued through the dark and devious ways of the classics by the demon T. A. and his troop of attendant spirits, we found our own speed insufficient to outstrip the monster, and hence prayed to those patron saints of college men. Hinds and Noble, for quick re- lief. In exchange for our prayers and sundry denarii they sent a shipment of ponies to our aid — and we rode with safety and ease through the domains of Anabasis, Homer, Cicero, and Virgil, and many another old Greek buck and Roman worthy. To relate further deeds of prowees would be but " wasteful and ridiculous excess, " especially when we have already filled the small amount of space allotted by the Bobashela Board. We have but begun, and we leave to future historians the task of recording our achievements in adequate fashion and abundant space. With Ulysses, we may call our classmates to press forward, reminding them that, " Some work of noble note, may yet be done. Not unbecoming men that strove with Gods.

After the T. A. ' s were paid for, each member, although broke utterly and com- pletely, felt his responsibility and settled down in earnest. Some became great French scholars, others were remarkable in Trigonometry, while in Bible with Cain and Daniel and a host of ministerial students, we were wonders. When exams came all felt ready to go in and make hundreds more or less, but after they were over, some were busted, some were disgusted, and others quit the class. As a whole this wonderful class came out well, although they were humiliated to know that on the catalog exam some of their number had failed. In athletics the standard was not lowered, and great things are expected from the class in this respect in the years to come. And now the Freshman year is over ! How wise we feel ! How proud of what we have accomplished, and how anxious and how eager to win greater victories next year! We are no longer green; we feel sure of ourselves now; we shall succeed. And when the next three years are over the deeds of the class of 1914 will go down in history as an honor, a credit, and a glory to Millsaps. S. G. M. — Historian.

" l_.V_ L_.fl_; VI_L_Il I M Ci)c Hamar Hittrarp orirtp In drawing the distinction between knowledge and wisdom, Tennyson has said that wisdom IS apphed knowledge. The Lamar Literary Society has ever striven to develop this power in its men. How well the society has succeeded in this great work is made manifest when we glance back over her past history. For the last six or seven years one of her men has been called upon to uphold the Purple and While Banner at the State Oratorical Contest. The faculty has likewise looked to her for a majority of the repre- sentatives to the various Chautauquas. The past has indeed been a glorious success, yet it seems that as the society grows older its value increases, and when the history of 1910-11 is written, it will be seen that this year has far eclipsed all former records. Its meetings have been regular, the atten- dance good, the enthusiasm high, and the work, on the whole, has been the best in the his- tory of the society. The members have realized as never before the meaning of the motto, " nulla palma sine labore, " and they ha e slri en to uphold this motto with an energy. and with a vigor, unparallelled in the histoiy of the society. With a record such as this, with a number of strong men in the society at present, and with the debaters and declaimers who will enter cur ranks in alter years, the me.Tibers of this society have no fear for the future. Indications point to continued success; and no one doubts that any single factor will be more conspicuous in making the future history of Millsaps College memorable, than the work of the Lamar Literary Society.

The Galloway Literary Society was organized in November, 1892, which gives it a history almost as old as the College itself. The picture of the late Bishop Galloway, which adorns our walls, together with our motto, " Known thy opportunity, " are in- delibly stamped on the minds of our members, and inspire them to higher and to nobler achievements. Whenever our men have locked horns with the representatives of our sister Society, I amar, and with other colleges, we have won our share of the honors. For six successive years the Faculty selected a Galloway man to represent the college in the M. I. O. .A. F.ach of these contestants won first place, thus reflecting credit upon the society, and add- ing fame to our much beloved institution. Two of the six captured the medal of the Inter- state Oratorical Associaticn. The contestant fcr this year, J. W. Broom, is also a Galloway man. We would not have the public lose sight of the fact that our Society is one of the greatest political bodies on the face of the globe. X ' ithm our walls are manipulated political schemes and combines that would cause the Mississippi Legislature to sit up and take notice. But when the last election for the year is over, and the smoke of battle has cleared away, it is then we pray, " Father, forgne our politics as we forgive those who politic against us. " When we dip into the future as far as human eye can see, there appears before us slill greater possibilities. When our men have gone out into the world to take their place in church and state, it is there thai we expect to achieve our greatest success, and count for the most in life. A. J. Beaslev.

The object of the Y. M. C. A. is well known the world over, for it has its organizations and members in every school and college in every civilized nation. It labors for the development of true and noble manhood m the highest degree. To gain this end there must be mental, physical, moral, and spiritual advance- ment and growth, and there is none of these which the Y. M. C. A. does not seek to foster and support. Her members rank among the best in every phase of college activity. On the athletic field, in the classroom, in social and religious life, her men stand as the first. The badge, a simple triangle on which are the words Spirit, Mind, Body, explains the mission of this great and world-wide organization — the equal and thorough develop- ment of man ' s three-fold nature. Character is one of the strongest essentials of manhood, and the Association seeks by all possible means to develop in every student a character which shall be strong and true, and which shall be able to withstand the temptations and evils which daily assail men. Knowing that the true source of strength is to be found in a knowledge of God and His Word, Bible classes are conducted by the members themselves, and a strong and interesting Mission Study course is also presented. These classes are of inestimable benefit to every man who takes part in them. Added to all of these are the weekly meetings, at which strong addresses are de- livered by men who know their subjects thoroughly and present them well. Life work addresses by physicians, ministers, and other professional men; musical programs; the discussion of special topics by the students themselves ; stirring addresses by missionaries and other strong men who are sent out by the general Y. M. C. A. Board, are all a means of education and uplift to the entire student body. The . M. C. A., then, strives to build up and develop strong, true, and noble Christian men, who by their lives and deeds shall made the world better for their having lived in it. H. C.

Professor Burton, whose religion be- comes him beautifully, gave his interpretation of the faith-without-works doctrine, as meaning, " You have got to go after everything you want. " He converted Mr. Buie, Major Millsaps, and President Hull to his belief, and the quartette went forth to do battle with the powers that be, to gain our cherished boon. Facts and arguments were necessary. But such a fight " would enable the flights of the highest genius and obtain pardon for the efforts of the meanest understanding. " They won. As when Hercules slew the snake-headed Medusa, and from her blood there sprang up the winged horse, Pegasus, so our long-pent-up spirit broke its bounds and flooded the campus with joy and enthusiasm when the news came that victory crowned our arms at Sardis, and once again at Hattiesburg. True we did not win all. Football was reserved as a forbidden fruit, but we won a decisive victory. With a httle more watching and waiting, and a little more preaching of the faith-without-works doctrine, it will come. Professor Burton dreamed a dream, and on the morning and evening of the second day he set about to fulfill it. His faith was as a grain of mustard seed, but he trusted that it would move the eternal hill at the rear of the dormitory. He sought out Major Millsaps and told the dream to him. He saw a level ground where-on a track was laid, a diamond, and a gridiron. He saw a grandstand rise upon the hilltop and over-look the field. He saw a club-house with its baths nearby. All this, he saw and more. The Major looked upon his vision, and behold! it was good. So they set about to move the hill at the rear of the dormitory and to make all things agreeable for the best Athletic field m Christendom. Vell, may we say that this has been a prosperous year for .Athletics at Millsaps. SVe have gained our inter-collegiate games, and we will have an athletic field before the end of the season, that would make any College proud. — N. M hltr4 i - ' BOB 5MEL -l9ll -S« QSarbstrr J illsaps ISuie Millsaps has many older alumni, but none more loyal nor more beloved than Web- ster M. Buie, who shares with Professor E. Y. Burton, the credit for our present hopeful situation as regards athletics. Not only did these two, ably aided by President Hull, lead our forces to victory in the contest for mter-collegiate games, but it is to them, and to the ever-ready munificence of Major Millsaps, that we owe our possession of what promises to be the best equipped and most complete athletic field in the entire state. Mr. Buie ' s interest in Millsaps ' athletics dates back to the years 1 898- 1 900, when he creditably filled the positions of catcher and second baseman on the ball team and guard and half back on the eleven. Since leaving college he has continued to fill creditably the positions that have fallen to his lot, the latest of these being that of second vice-president and director of the Citizens ' Savings Bank and Trust Company of Jackson, to which he was elected at the last meeting of the stockholders. He is also private secretary to Major Millsaps, and besides being the assistant treasurer of the Board of Trust, he has the distinction of be- ing the youngest member of that august body. He is a Mason, a K. of P. and a Kappa Alpha. Notwithstanding the constant demands of business upon his time and thought, his love for his Aiwa Mater, instead of lessening with the passing years, has grown steadily. By this, the latest evidence of his ever increasing interest in the college, he has bound the student body to him by a tie which shall last as long as athletics endure at Millsaps College.
