" History of Senior Class HE history of mankind is the history of great men. The historj of the Senior Class is the history of the achievements of great men. Now that we stand as Seniors, we realize that the class of 12 is passing — passing from the mystic possibilities of college days into the stern realities of life, it is natural that we should pause a moment at the portal and cast lingering, farewell glance of retrospection towards those halls from which we are about to take our departure to enter a broader domain of usefulness. And as we look backward our memory calls into review the incidents which helped form the train of events that have occurred. It was in the fall of kjivS that this same band, si t in number, was forced to submit to the humiliation of being called Freshmen. This is the nightmare of student life, when one is brought face to face with new problems, new environments, and new difficulties, which require all the tact of a born diplomat to overcome. Our select band of sixty, towering above the common herd, stood the test ami branched out into every phase of college life. We made ourselves felt as a force, on the athletic field, in the society halls, and in the social world, as well as in the class room. When Fresh- men we were, as are all Freshmen, young and inexperienced, with much to learn, and as all Freshmen we suffered many falls and defeats. But as you know the defeats of yesterday make the success and achievements of to-morrow. Lack of space will not permit me to enumerate all the honors we won as Freshmen, suffice it to say that we surpassed every class that had preceded us. After a summer of recreation we returned to our old haunts, with all the dignity that our position as Sophomores demanded. This year we won honor and fame equal- ing, if not surpassing, that which we had gained the previous year. ( )n the athletic field we triumphed again, winning class football, baseball, and basketball champion- ship. Again our young orators held their hearers spell-bound with their eloquence. Again our gallants startled the social circles with their brilliancy. Hut good things cannot endure forever, so a college student cannot remain always in the blissful, ignorant state of a Sophomore. Again the cycle of time has turned, again we stand among the familiar scenes. But Oh! How changed is our position. Now we look with pity, for across the chapel at the infinitesimal Freshman and the insignificant Sophomore, for as Juniors we are entitled to occup) section two. We had all the hopes, aspirations and desires of a Junior, and as a reward for consistent and diligent work many of these desires have been fulfilled. As Juniors we again won fame in every phase of college life. Now comes the final chapter in this little drama, which has covered a space of four years, and which contains so many of the happiest days of our life. In many respects the last chapter is the most tragic. For now as Seniors we are about to go out into the world and seek our fortune. Four years this little band has stayed to- gether. Four years we have shared each others joys and sorrows. ' Tis hard to part. But whatever we do, wherever our road in life may lead, we can never forget the friendship made impregnable by four years ' association. Fred. B. Smith. Historian. 27 Class Will and Testament )ur predecessors in the days gone by Have willed everything beneath the sky. So we, without further argument, Submit this as our will and testament. All fees heretofore paid by us. Our excellent collection of " Jacks, " All tickets to Lyceum lectures, All vacant rooms in the " shacks " We will to " Mose. " All our note-books on Geology, Together with an assortment of rocks. Nine hundred varieties of Gastropods Nicely bound in Thompson ' s " socks, " We give to " Sully. " Our grades in Anglo-Saxon, Our Sophomore stories besides, The books from which they were copied Things about which we then lied, We leave to " Dippy. " The girlish giggle of Adams, " Long " Henderson ' s dignified air, The unlimited nerve of Bufkin, And Logue ' s suit of curly hair. We bequeath to future co-eds. All tricks, schemes and chicanery, Politics and ' cuss-words " galore. Private chats in the president ' s office, And the indomitable college bore. We donate to all lower classmen. 28 Just Twenty Years From Today Adam, who was the first man, On the 1 9 1 2 class roll, Has spent ten years in Africa Trying to save men ' s soul. J. W. Broom tried to rise, But politics " got his goat, " The last we heard of " Irish Jim " He was pilot on a boat. And now as proof emphatic That wonders never cease, Dan Bufkin has quit insurance, And his neighbors dwell in peace. Clark, G. C, practiced law Until nineteen twenty-eight, When he entered the political arena And became governor of his state. Clark, W. S., is now the owner, Of a good ten acre farm, At night he sits in a rocking chair With a young Clark on each arm. Miss Honeycutt is a teacher, And a good work has wrought, The faithful work of one like her, Can never come to naught. Lester Lewis, a capitalist, Now lives in a western town, He ' s changed in many ways perhaps, Hut still he says " John Broun. " Logue, Ullen F. has won his fame, With the " cat gut and the bow, " And has now retired to private life, In the mountains of Mexico. Morris ' s fame is now assured, Since the appearance of his book — " How to Remain on Friendly Terms Your Wife, And at the Same Keep the Cook. " with Peets began his life as a pedagog, " Teaching young ideas to shoot, " He married the daughter of a wealthy man, And got a nice little home to boot. Cooper is now a banker, And when he ' s allowed to choose, He wears the " swellest " clothes in town And patent leather shoes. Miss Dodds as a suffragette Has won immortal fame, And women for a thousand vears, Will magnify her name. I am sure you ' ve heard that Foster, Since he knocked Jack Johnson out, Has failed to find a single man. Who will meet him in a ten round bout. Then Green, E. H., old harmless Ed, Whom the co-eds did admire. Now leads his men at a reckless pace, Whenever there ' s a fire. Henderson,., long Walter F., Still measures out his pills, And swears he knows the remedy For all of human ills. Smith, the long, lean, lanky Fred, Has at last found his vocation, He has startled the critics of modern verse, By his " Power of Imagination. " R. E. Steen has made the longest step, Of any of the class thus far, From Editor of a patent weekly, To United States Senator. W. N. Thomas, the handsome man, Of the class of nineteen twelve, Is a presiding elder in Florida, And reports he ' s doing well. In a machine propelled by the rays of light, Fulton Thompson is visiting the moon, " If the rays suffice " so a wireless runs, " I ' ll return to the earth in June. " " Who is the singer? " the small boy asked, " For whose return you yell ' till you ' re hoarse, " " Who? " answered the man thus addressed, Annie Bessie Whitson, of course. 29 I Wonder If twenty years hence I should visit this place, An old boy forgotten, with dignified face. Now whom would 1 find in what was once my place? I wonder. Would old Father Ricketts meet me again With a face whose radiance is a condemnation of sin, And a grasp of the hand that has strengthened many men? I wonder. Would the old chapel bell strike the same old note? Would " Dippy " and " Toe " know the Lord ' s prayer by rote: Or would the college piano be old enough to vote? 1 wonder. Would Burton " E. ' 1 . " then be heard to say, " B observing the stars you can tell the time o ' day, " ( )r ' A ou ' ll never pass Trig flunking this way? " I wonder. Would " Mose " still teach his same T. A., Storm the heights of Troy in a startling way. Or lead out from Carthage without dismay? I wonder. Would the students in Physics know the laws of Motion. " So that, " " Red ' s, " " So then. " will cause no commotion. When he shifts them about to suit his own notion? 1 wonder. Would " l.r, er, this is important, " still float on the air. As Sully leaned back in his stool bottom chair. And gave a little lecture on how to grow hair 2 I wonder. Would he have the seniors on a Geological trip. Digging for specimens and working like rip. Investigating syncline, anticline and dip? I wonder. Would " Sis " still keep a political slate Based on conditions all over the state, Ami not give a darn when you come in late? I wonder. Would a new gymnasium have supplanted the old? Would it be supplied with horse, mat and pole? Or could the basketball team then pitch a goal? 1 wonder. Would the yells that I ' ve beard, and the dear old songs. Would the faces I ' e known so well and so long, All have yielded place to a stranger throng? I wonder. 30 P Editorial Board of Bobashela James Wesley Broom Harry Harm an Boswell Grover Cleveland Clark Fulton Thompson Thomas Wiley Lewis .

These accomplishments have been main and varied, but we have space here for recording o.nlv a few t the principal ones. It was in the fall of ' 09 that our noble class of forty-three burst into Millsaps life. Thej ' were a determinded set of fellows, men of action, who afterwards proved themselves makers of history, indeed. In the literary societies our men displayed oratorical talent and aptness for debate. More than once were the steady Seniors and the defiant Juniors vanquished b the mighty tongue of the Freshman, while the Sophomores, awe-stricken, looked on with wonder and amazement. In the class-room we surpassed all former records. In athletics also we played no meager part since we furnished men for the ' Varsitj team, both baseball and football. ( )n returning in 10 we found that only thirty-one of our original number had come hack. et, undaunted we entered our Sophomore year with our determination fixed, our purpose formed. Our members showed remarkable ability as members of the " Bobashela " and the " I ' m pie and White " Staffs. In athletics, literary societies, ami in the class room we eclipsed all former records. Having thus laid the founda- tion, deep and strong, we were exceptional h well prepared tor the hardships and trials ot a J umor ' s lite. On re-entering college in ' ll, general disorder seemed to reign in the ranks of all classes. Man) of our number positiveh refused to indentify themselves with the Junior class, declaring their preference for the Sophomore. On the other hand many " would be " Seniors, attracted by our congeniality and good-fellowship remained with us. thus swelling our number to twenty-two. Thus our class is composed ot the most illustrious men of school, and is furnishing leaders in all phases of college activity. 1 hough we all doubtless think of our Junior year as the happiest and most instructive of our college career, nevertheless, let us resolve that this shall not end our course, but that we will meet each other here again in the fall of 1912.

It is the goal for which we strove all last year. How far away it seemed then and how infinitely long and dark looked the road to Seniordom. But we were onlv green Freshies, who called the professors " Mister " and couldn ' t find our way to the class rooms. Millsaps seemed to us enormous, and Jackson looked to our unaccustomed eyes like New York City. How different it was to come hack this year as old men with a record behind us to be proud of, and a class which is acknowledged to be the best in school. We felt as if we owned the world. Long ago we had forgotten that we were ever Freshmen. How could we have been so ignorant and green ! It is true that our ranks are thinned this year. Some have gone elsewhere to make their mark in the world, while some we have generously given to the Freshmen, to initiate them into the mysteries of " Trig " and " T. A. " Although these have left us, we have found new, but loyal men to take their places. In class work we are unexcelled. But why should we speak of this, for surely everyone has heard Dr. Swartz ' s loud praises of this Sophomore Latin Class, and Dr. Sullivan ' s expressions of wonder at our brilliancy in Chemistry. It is the same old story heard last year; we are simph " sharks " at everything. In athletics we have accomplished wonders. In football we have come off victors on every field of battle and have easily won the honors. More members from our class made the ' Varsity team than from any other class. Our men in basketball, tennis, track work, and baseball have astonished Millsaps by their wonderful skill. Too much cannot be said or written of this brilliant class, and our Junior historian has m profound pity for the task which lies before him, when next year he attempts to enumerate the many wonderful things accomplished by us. I cannot begin to do this class justice in writing its history, but I can say to each Sophomore that you can certainly rejoice in the fact that you are in this class and can enjoy the fame and glory of 11)14.

Thus again in the annals of our college, the history of that most wonderful and indispensable factor of college life — a Freshman Class, is begun. These Freshmen were not as the common herd which in former years had pre- ceeded them. Although at first they may have appeared somewhat green and home- sic k, ere long marked improvements were seen to have taken place in their demeanor. For instance, they have become accustomed to hearing the bell, to seeing side- walks, trains, and the many wonders of civilization. They have progressed so far as to cut classes without an axe, to vote a straight ticket in an election, and some have even passed the catalogue exam. As has been said before. Freshmen are indispensable to all phases of college life. Were it not for them, the big Sophomore would have about eleven-tenths of the enjoy- ments of his nf v pinnacle taken from him. The Junior is a better Junior for having once been a Freshman. The Senior, who was never a Freshman, misses half of the joy in getting his diploma. The Athletit Association draws its fresh, vigorous recruits from the ranks of the Freshman Class. Realizing that the proudest moment of their life — that in which they were first called COLLEGE MEN — had arrived, the class of is, soon after entering college, plunged into the different phases of colege life. In the ' l . M. C. A., the Athletic Association, the Literary Societies, and elsewhere their influence has been felt. Al- though at this writing their ability on the track and in baseball has not been tested, they are proud of the fact that they furnished six men for the ' Varsity Football Team. The Freshmen feel that they have a historj of which they may be justly proud and, as the session draws to a close, thev are eagerh awaiting the summer vacation when the will have nothing to do but inform their friends in the different parts of the state concerning the latest rules in athletics, and explain to them how much they missed b never attending Millsaps.

Proud are we of the fact that we can add another successful year to the long list of glorious ones that the society has enjoyed in the past. When we assembled for the Hist meeting of this year, we listened in vain for some of the voices that had thrilled us in days of yore. They were gone; and into our hands the responsibility had been placed of carrying on our society to loftier heights of glory. Hut the time was not long before reinforcements came to us in the new men who entered our ranks. These men, coming as raw material, for awhile engaged our attention; but the soon came under the Galloway influence and now, one and all, heart and hand, they stand loyal Galloways. After we had received the last initiate into our ranks, we delighted each one by " unanimously " electing him monthtj orator. Then each Freshie made his maiden speech to the societj — no doubt it had won honor and glory for him before on many a hard fought day. This is the time of the year when everyone comes to the meetings and fines are paid — mostly. Elections comes, before which those same Freshmen are as popular with the upper classmen candidates as a translation of Livy is with the members of the Sophomore Latin class. Christmas and the holidays arrive, sometimes making feaful gaps in our ranks — and our energy. But at the Mid-Session we are up in arms to defend the old Galloway, for in the past years a large share of honors have been ours on these occasions. rime rolls on, punctuated at intervals by such great occasions as when Moore in sworn in and Linn itt reads the minutes. Spring now approaches and we send our men to tight for us against other colleges. The crown- ing work ot the year, the commencement occasion in now on us, and we are ready for another clash with our sister society. Thus the year has gone by. A Litcran Society, like a nation, must be judged by the men who compose it. Judged by this standard, the Callow a Literary Society has nothing to fear. We have men in our ranks, who are giants m all departments of college activities. And when on departing, their mantels tall, he assured that among those who catch them shall he man} Galloways. " Sparta ' s citizens are her bulwarks, " said the Laceedamonian King. The strength of the Galloway Literan Societj is her men. N. B. Harmon. Jr.. ' 14.

A. and the various Chautauquas, have done more towards placing her in her enviable position among the foremost colleges of the State than am other one thing. To all acquainted with the history of the Lamar Literary Society, it is a known fact that she has done more than her share in this great work.. For a period of six or seven years she was called upon to furnish a representative to the State Oratorical Contest, and a majority of the representatives to the Chautauquas. At the same time she lias never failed to receive her share of honors at home. The past has gone down in history, the present interests us more. The session ot H)ii- ' i2 started off under the most auspicious circumstances with the largest enroll- ment in the histon of the society. All of our most promising under-graduates re- turned. These, with the new members, who at this early date have shown themselves worths Lamars, can be depended upon to uphold our banner whenever called upon. Although our annual election at the beginning of the session was somewhat marred by a little too much politics, we believe that in the end we have selected an able set of men to represent us before the public. )ur members this year seem to he abiding h the laws and regulations better than ever before. The attendance, as a rule, has been good. The cheerfulness and willing- ness with which the) have performed their labors, show that, evidently, they have kept always in mind our motto, " Nulla palama sine lahore. " G. H. M.. ' 13. : • .A 4 ,„,.. ' ... -TMOTC R» ,n t Si? HIS MASTERS VOJCE , The Janitor THERE was silence in the room after the girl ' s last words. Her tone had con- veyed so much to him. " Ti ou a janitor. O Webb, not that. " Webb Smithson raised his head quickly. " Well, Annie. " he said. " I can see no disgrace in that. I must go to Millsaps and I must have a college education. They have offered me the position of janitor which will pay my expenses and leave me opportunity to do my college work well. I am sorry you feel as you do, for I selected Millsaps because you are going there as a Co-ed. If you do not care to asosciate with a janitor, you neet not feel yourself obliged to do so. " He stood up quickly, a tall, manly hoy. though his handsome face was now flushed with anger. " 1 can see no degradation in honest work, " he told her. " ou have before this been my inspiration, Annie; you have spurred me on when perhaps I would have listened to others and gone to work on the farm with father. He needs me, but I can- not give up my ambition. My dream always has been this college education. " " O Webb, I understand it ail. " she said, " but is there no other work vou can get? Think of Senator Henry Mason ' s daugther engaged to a janitor. Can ' t you see how rediculous that would be ' . Do try for my sake to get some other work. I could never be seen anywhere with you. Webb, can ' t you understand? What is it? Don ' t look at me like that. " She had never seen that expression on his face. In his eyes was the look of a wounded animal. " There is no need of discussing this matter. If you feel like this I will never tell that I knew you before. We will meet at Millsaps as strangers, hut you shall respect me yet. " " I do feel this wa and 1 can ' t help it. Webb. " she said as she held out the little ring he had given her. " " 1 am sorry, he said, simply taking the little token from her hand. 11. The excitement and confusion of classification was over, and Annie, as she sat in Chapel that morning, had the same feeling of bewilderment that many a Co-ed before her had felt at the sea of boys ' faces around her and the prospect of work ahead. She 72 sat m the Freshman section, and across the way, as a Junior, she saw the strong hand- some face of the janitor. She noticed with a little pang that his clothes, though clean, were old and worn, showing the evidence of the brushing to which he had subjected them so often. But what a brow he had, what eyes and what a look of intelligence on his handsome face. She sighed unconsciously as she thought that he would never be anything to her again. She passed him several times that day, twice in the library where he was tending the furnace and again as he was sweeping the walks. Annie could not help looking at him, but if he saw her or felt her presence, his face did not show it. " All is over be- tween us, " thought the girl, and she plunged recklessly into college life and college gaieties. " What do I care for the janitor? he is nothing to me, " she said. Annie was very popular because of her beauty and her father ' s wealth, but, though seemingly gav, she could not forget the boy she had once known so well. Rumors came to her frequently of the splendid work he was doing, and how he was respected by his classmates and the faculty. He had lately joined the most ex- clusive fraternity in school, was a member of the honor council, and had been elected to represent Millsaps at the M. I. O. A. Annie had found that the janitor was not easily forgotten. Could she win him back ' III. The corridors and parlors of a great Southern Hotel were filled to overflowing with a jolly crowd of college boys and girls. The gay colors of Mississippi ' s four col- leges were much in evidence, and everywhere was heard speculation on the outcome of the contest. And whom do we find representing Millsaps? Only Webb Smithson, the janitor. Nine months ago he had been onlv the janitor, but tonight, as he entered the box with his little blue eyed sponsor, Marion Grey, Annie sitting out in the audience, recognized the change in him. " We ' ll win, Marion, " he said, as he left her in the box, " don ' t ever doubt it. I ' m not the least afraid. " " I know you will, Webb, she answered, " I have no fear of defeat for you. " But what of Annie Mason sitting out in the audience? Once more she lifted the card tied to the carnations she intended sending Webb. " From one who is glad to know the janitor. Forgive me, " it read. Oh, what a struggle with pride she had be- fore she could bring herself to write that. But then she loved him; perhaps he would torgive her. How proud she was of him as he sat there on the stage! Now and then 73 he bowed and smiled as his enthusiastic college and fraternity mates cheered him, Annie held her breath as he arose to speak. Would he look, at her, would he under- stand how much she had meant on that card, and how she had sacrificed her pride for his sake? He stood for a moment until the cheers of his friends had died away, then his eyes sought those of Marion Grey, and her answering smile was his inspiration. Tears trickled slowly down Annie ' s face as his eloquent voice filled the hall. There was no doubt about it, he had carried all before him — the medal was his. Twenty minutes later Millsaps claimed the victor as their own, and the Jaintor was a hero. " 1 knew you would win, Webb, ' ' Marion whispered as she pinned the medal just above his Fiat. pin. " ou were nn inspiration, " he answered, " and will be through the coming years. " As Annie turned sadlj away, the Millsaps ' boys still cheered and still the col- lege yell rang in her ears: " What ' s the matter with Smithson ' ! He ' s all right. Smithson! Smithson! He ' s the one can make the speech. He ' s the one who got the peach. Rah, Rah, Rah. Millsaps. S. G. M.. ' i 4 74 75 CONVENTION By Katherine Tobin Mullins. When the Beta at convention meets the hrother Beta there, When Kappa Sig or Zeta Psi " conventions " any where, They smoke a cigarette or two, and tell a witty tale — But the female at convention is more loyal than the male. For she gathers in threat numbers from the east and from the west And her great judical mind puts brand-new theories to test; She settles world-wide questions, and her judgments never fail, For the female at convention is much wiser than the male. And when important things in her inimitable way Are settled, and she closes up the business of the day, She dances, sings, or acts a play, and sparkling words prevail, For the female at convention is more clever than the male. N. B. — We really don ' t believe these horrid things we say. But then they ' re surely just as wise as Rudvard ' s, anyway, He, cruel man, our pretty sex did foolishly assail — Together, girls! — The female is much nicer than the male! 70 Kappa Sigma FRATRES IN URBE C.

Citv Mission Committee ' ) ' ) Young Men ' s Christian Association Every man in college should, and in a measure does, strive to be a:i all around college man. And every student realizes that this goal cannot be obtained without first affiliating himself with the . M. C. A. This affiliation is, indeed, one of the first qualifications for that end. On this fact, the history of the college continuously repeats itself. Where one finds a real leader in college life, in him. he also finds the principles for which the Association stands. The athletic association is a potent factor in the activities of college life. The literary societies tend toward the uplift and development of the mental and rhetorical powers of the individual. The fraternities are indispensable for their powers of brotherly love and for the social culture which they give their members. All of these organizations are fundamental and add greatly to the attractiveness of college lite. But the Y. M. C. A. is the greatest of them all. To this organization falls the duty of drawing the student body closer together, thereby preventing as much as possible the formation of clans and factions. To-day more than in anj preceding age, men who stand for something in life — men with, character are needed. The 1. M. C. A. is primarily a character building organization. And to it more than to any other one factor is due the credit which is reflected on the college by those who have gone out from these walls. It is only when we stop for a moment to consider, that we realize the great work which this organiza- tion is accomplishing. What nobler anil yet simpler conception can the human mind conceive of, than of the sturdy character building which is continually going hand in hand with the noble development of the mind. The motto, " Body, Mind, and Spirit, " is the key to this influential organization. ( )ne of the best phases of the Association is the Bible and Mission Study classes. These classes are conducted in a systematic manner, ami through them great and lasting good is accomplished. From the stud) of (ind ' s Word and the broad field for mission wink, we learn to love his teachings and are brought face to face with our eternal obligation to the heathen. Then the weckh meetings are strong and of a wholesome character. At these meetings the Association is usually addressed by some strong, influential student, who is familiar with his subject ami ably presents it to the members. Addresses b the Jackson clergy and musical programs, however, are not unusual anil add very much to the variety and the interest of the Association. Thus it is in these various methods that the Young Men ' s Christian Association of Millsaps College is aiding in answering the universal call which has gone out for men of character and principles — men with a purpose.

Logue J ' ' ' Editor-in-Chief Associate Editor Social Editor Reporters Business Manager Assistant Business Managers uiS Mississippi Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Association The Mississippi Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Association was organized at Crvstal Springs, Mississippi, in the summer of 1896. The Mississippi Chautauqua Assembly had invited the male colleges of the State to send speakers there to represent them in an oratorical contest, aid it is to these representatives that the Association owes its found- ing. Millsaps college was represented in the first contest by J. W. Canada and R. L. Cannon. The colleges represented in the Association are the University of Mississippi, A. M. College, Mississippi College, and Millsaps College. The objects of the M. I. O. A., as stated in the preamble of the constitution, are to form closer bonds of friendship between the leading colleges of the state, to encourage and promote the study and cultivation of oratory, and to meet in annual contests to determine the progress that is being made toward that end. The records of the Association show that the first contest was held at Crystal Springs in 1896, and that J. W. Canada, of Millsaps College, was awarded the medal. The second contest was held at Meridian in 1897, and Maurice G. Fulton, from the University, was presented with the prize. The records for the years 1898 and 1899 have not been kept, but information from other sources shows that the third contest was held in the Millsaps College chapel and was won by a representative of the Uni- versity, and the fourth, held at Natchez in 1899, was won by a representative of Mississippi College. The fifth contest was held at Yicksburg in 1900, and a Mill- saps ' representative, J. i. Mitchell, was declared winner. Meridian was the scene of the sixth contest in 1901, and again a Millsaps ' man W. L. Duren, won. J. R. Countiss, of Millsaps, won the medal in the seventh contest held at Columbus in i )()2. At Natchez, in 1903, W. F. Cook, of Millsaps, was winner in the eighth con- test. History repeated itself at Hattisburg the next year, when C. A. Alexander won the ninth contest for Millsaps. The tenth contest was held at Brookhaven, in 1905, and resulted in a victory for Edgar Godbold, of Mississippi College, with M. S. Pittman, of Millsaps College, a close second. The eleventh contest was held at Kosciusko, May 11, 1 906, and E. Webster, of the University, won first prize, and W. A. Williams, of Millsaps, won second. The twelfth contest was held at Columbus. Stone, of Mississippi College, won first place. The thirteenth was held at Meridian, Brumfield, of A. M., was awarded first honor. The fourteenth con- test was held at Greenwood, Paul Renshaw, of University, was winner. The fifteenth meet was in Greenville. Gillespie, of " Ole Miss, " was declared the winner. The contest last year was held at Gulfport, and once again victory rested with the Purple and White, J. W. Broom winning first and C. T. Rand, of A. M.. second place. Thus far, Millsaps has been victorious in seven contests and on two occasions has been a close second. Millsaps Representatives to M. I. O. A. Crystal Springs. 1896. J. W.

MILLSAPS Alma Mater dear old Millsaps, Loyal sons are we, Our fond hearts are thine alone And ever more shall be. CHORUS Proud art thou in classic beauty Of thy noble past, With thy watchword, Honor, Duty, Thy high fame shall last. Ever swiftly and more swiftly, Time goes fleeting by, Still abides our love for Millsaps, It can never die. CHORUS Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star (The Seniors ' Version.) Twinkle, twinkle little star. Low I wonder what ou are: Asteroid or Pleides, satellite or Hercules. How much trouble it exacts! — always changing parallax; Pushing round the apsides, backing Taurus in Aries. Could we keep you in your path, gladly would we study math But the more we work with you, the more labors you must do. When on Tuesday Sol is set, air is cold and ground is wet, Then you twinkle in high glee, laughing at our misery. As we Seniors bunt in vain Saturn ' s ring or Tycho ' s plain ; Seniors, thank the unknown star that has kept away so far, Telescope has never shown and math writers never known ; Thank the pole that is so high it occults the southern sky, And the moon so good to hide mountains on the other side. -A.

Noble conceived the idea of a society for the Preps. The result of this thought was the Prentiss Literary Society. Its organiza- tion was effected and its charter members went to work to make it a success. And they have succeeded beyond their most sanguine hopes. From a bunch of a dozen or more fellows, it has grown to a band of about thirty-five active, hard-working, inter- ested members, and the Prentiss has already begun to make itself felt in the college. Each year the men who finish from the Prep Department come into the college societies, and as the new men are usually given a chance to show their ability during the first term, the old members have been able to single out the men who have been training for college activities in the Prep halls. They have ease and freedom of speech on the floor which few men who come into college untrained have. This society is. in- deed, doing a great work for the other two societies. Nor are they stopping with what they have done. They have formed a triangular debate for this and succeeding years between their society and debating teams from Chamberhn Hunt Academy and French Camp Academy. This debate, which is to he held on the 23d day of February, should be a great thing and should help de- velope these men in a wonderful degree. We hope for the Preps in their first battle abroad, complete victory. Fight clean in all your contests, and if you lose, don ' t give up, but prepare for the next one with renewed fervor; and when you win, re- member that we are proud of you and expect you to keep it up. But win or lose, you have the heart} support of the whole college. Messrs. Bailey and Ruff offer yearly a medal to the member of this society who delivers the best declamation. From the way in which they have started, we predict that the preparatory students will, in the future, play an important part in the shap- ing the destiny of both the college and the state. 154 Preparatory Football Team Bufkin L.

" ' To Dr. Walmsley " We love flattery, even when we see through it and are not deceived by it, for it shows that we are of importance enough to he courted. " To Dr. Sullivan " One to twenty-seven inclusive. " To Dr. Kern " I am but an atom, but an atom in a solid, God given world, where truth is mightiest. Insignificant as I am, the universe were incomplete without me. " To Dr. Swart , " They say the best men are moulded out of faults; And, for the most, become much better For being a little bad. " To Prof. E. Y. Burton " Sarcasm is the natural language of the devil. " To Prof. Harrell " This proposition looks fair, but its fallacy becomes apparent under the first steady look. " To Prof. J. M. Burton " Men are usually tempted by the devil, hut an idle man positively tempts the devil. " To Prof. Noble " There is danger of mistaking wandering thought for brilliant thought. Discussive- ness is not brilliancy. " To Prof. Huodleston " There is nothing that this age, from whatever standpoint we survey it, needs more, physically, intellectually and morally, than thorough ventilation. " To Prof. Ricketts " The rarest attainments is to grow old, happily and gracefully. " ,sS POSTLUDE The postponement of the preparation of this special piece of copy until the con- clusion of our lahors is not only logically necessary, but is in accordance with the well recognized principle that the most difficult phases of a task should be performed first and the easiest last. An appreciation of loyal and whole-hearted assistance flows much more rapidly from our editorial pen than have, for example, those roasts and humorous attempts which are expected to occupy a place in a publication of this kind, and yet which cannot always be as sincerely and freely written. An abler and more energetic staff, editor never had. To each of them we ex- tend our thanks for their faithful service. Especial credit is due R. D. Peets whose energy and ability, in extracting coin from every organization occupying space in this Bobashela and his sagacity in overcoming advertising objections, has made possible this publication. We desire to express our appreciation of the interest manifested and the service rendered by Dr. Kern. Recognition is also due to Messrs. Ramsey, Keister, Roberts and others who contributed to the art department. We acknowledge our indebted- ness to The Haines Photo Co., of Coxxeaut, Ohio, whose kindness makes possi- ble the panoramic view of we are justly proud. To those mentioned above and to all others who have in any way assisted in the publication of the 1912 Bobashela. we extend our thanks. The Editor.
