If Millsaps men are asked to name one man m whom there is no guile, instinctively they turn to Professor Ricketts. Their confidence in him is as steadfast as the Rock of Ages. He inspires the love and veneration of them all. It has not been his lot to play a spectacular part in life, but rather to pursue the even tenor of his va,y, dropping here and there a kindly word, giving alms his left hand knew not of, and pouring oil upon the troubled waters. He is the Nestor of the college community. His sage advice dis- perses doubt, solves perplexing problems, and lifts the burden from the troubled spirit. He is the soul of honor; his feelings are delicate yet virile; his every action, grace itself; . . " His ready speech flows free and fair In phrase of gentlest courtesy. " ' He does not belong to this strenuous generation, but, still alive to the spirit of the age, his sound judgment, clear vision, and broad sympathy have acted as a ballast to progressive movement. The saintly life of such a man is Christi- anity ' s own excuse for being. Professor R. S.

" Senior Class History The session of 1909-10 was a memorable one for MiUsaps College, for it was m tfiat year that the present stately and learned seniors entered the college as unsophisticated but ambitious freshmen. Other years had seen other freshman classes enter, but never had a class quite so well merited the name " Freshman " as that one did in the fall of 1909. It was so " fresh " that it was verdant; it was quite " mannish, " too, for out of a membership of 44 there was but one solitary co-ed. Nothing daunted, however, by our verdancy nor by the dim and distant prospect of our " dip " down those four years of effort and toil ahead of us (which seems in reality to be centuries), we set out resolutely to cut our way through the mists of dark- ness which our " profs " told us enveloped us. Some soon fell victims to the snares of Euclid and Empedocles; others, thoroughly affrighted by the sombre and distressing melancholy of Virgil, gave up the battle early ; while still others, though lasting a some- what longer time, finally perished in the din of battle. When the fight was over we found that we had suffered heavy loss in killed and wounded, some being in fact so badly mangled that, though on horseback, they were with difficulty saved from the final carnage. It was not, however, till the next session opened that the extent of the slaughter of our forces was fully realized. Out of the 43 only 26 young men had survived. The one co-ed had, however, fought so valiantly that four others had enlisted as her comrades in the fight. This year we laughed at the terrors of the preceding year, and even snapped our fingers in the face of the monster " T. A. " We began to look around for something really worthy of our steel and for other worlds to conquer. We found them. In oratory two of our members began to give unmistakable evidence that the days of Demosthenes and of Webster were soon to return to earth again. In athletics we beat the " Invincibles " and made them bite the dust in shameful rout. So that the end of the year found us altogether satisfied with ourselves and complacently happy in the thought that we had made the term " Sophomore, " ordinarily one of reproach, one of honor and renown. As juniors we exceeded in our achievements even the high hopes which our past brilliant record justified our friends (and ourselves) in cherishing for us. In the class room our work was uniformly excellent and satisfactory (to ourselves) ; in athletics " Kirk " was declared the best all-round man and Boswell brought the year to a close in a blaze of glory by winning the Chautauqua medal in the summer of 1912. And now the end of the battle is drawing nigh! The mists are nearly all dispelled! The victory is nearly won! We are dignified and superior seniors. Life is staring at us and we are blinking at life; aye, we are even now taking part in the serious affairs of the nation! We elected Wilson last fall and celebrated our triumph in dutiful and proper style. We shall soon bid farewell to " dear old Millsaps " and go out into the world to win fame and fortune. To those we leave behind us we give this word at parting. To the faculty: May the succeeding classes which come and go bear away with them the same love and affection for you which we cherish in our hearts. To the student body: Walk diligently in our footsteps and you shall yourself some day arrive at a like glorious achievement. HISTORIAN. 26 «» ««f BOBASHILA mtw Senior Prophecy " A glass prospective wherein men might see What so their thoughts or hearts desire could wish. " It was a cold winter evenmg, and I felt rather lonely as I sat before the huge old- fashioned fireplace, resting after a busy day. That day, in rummaging among some papers and books, the gleanings of former years, I had run across an old diary, and I said to myself, " It has been 19, no 20 years since we left Millsaps. Our class is scattered far and wide now, I suppose. How I wish I knew what each one has been doing today! " I closed my eyes and memories of those happy college days came thick and fast. How long I sat there, I do not know, but all at once I was startled by the sound of a slight e.xplosion. The fireplace was filled with smoke. As it cleared away I beheld, standing in the shadow of the tall andirons a little grey figure, the color of the ashes, topped by a red turban-like cap, as red as the last fork of flame that flickered behind the logs. In his hand he held a globular crystal almost as big as his head, and advanc- ing towards me he placed it close to my eyes. " The powers of the mystic world have granted your last wish. Look, and you shall see what each of your classmates is doing. I will explain what you do not under- stand. " Too much astonished for utterance, I gazed into the crystal. At fust it seemed merely a cloudy ball: then I distinguished a great throng of people. In a moment I recognized the place as the Louvre. The people seemed to be gazing intently at a great canvas, which was guarded by eight or ten attendants and fenced in by a heavy railing. In spite of these precautions many persons pressed nearer to get a better view of it. " But what IS this? " I asked. " It is Rosa Bonheur Howard ' s latest picture. In the 20 years, she has made for herself a name which is even greater th an that of the original Rosa Bonheur. Thousands of people come daily to see her work, and she has been offered a fortune for this painting. " After the lines of the picture had faded completely away, the dwarf said, " You will next see the interior of a private car, in which the president of the road is traveling. " I looked and saw a grey haired man seated by the car window, intently studying some important looking papers. I was still trying to place him when I was told that it was F. H. McGee, trying to devise some scheme for connecting his two great systems, the I. C. U. R. and the U. C. I. B. " He long ago left the ministry, disgusted with the smallness of the salary, and has risen from a mail clerk to his present position. " The scene disappeared and another came into view. It showed a great circus tent crowded with people. Occupying all three rings was a trapeze of prodigious size. Then from one side of the tent I saw an Apollo-like figure, clad in pink, flash across the tent and up the trapeze. So rapidly were his leaps, so swanlike his swoops, and so marvelous the ability of his jumps that I did not see his face till he paused at the apex of the struc- ture, where he balanced lightly on one toe and kissed his hand to the audience. Then, to my horror, I beheld the features, rouged and radiant, of J. D. Wroten. 27 riie crystal changed ancJ I saw a great drawing-room, in the center of which were two striking figures. A tall lady dressed in green was fanning herself in an agitated, fluttering manner. At her feet knelt a portly person clad in clerical garb. By the cut of his coat, the baldness of his head and the precision with which his glasses seemed to have settled upon his pudgy nose, I knew him to be no less than a bishop. One fat hand was passionately extended over his heart, the other extended beseechingly in the direction of the lady. Can this be G. H. Moore? Is it possible that he is proposing? " It is he — and this will make his seventh. " I next beheld a brilliantly lighted banquet hall. About a long table some 50 men and women in full evening dress were sitting. At the head of the table, performing the duties of toastmaster, was a tall, slender figure, arrayed in ruffled pink waistcoat, knee trousers and green hose — a costume which has lately been adopted by the ultra-society set of New ork. The dwarf explained: " J. B. Honeycutt was left a fortune by an old woman he befriended in his youth. He has entered society and acquired the repu- tation of being the most fashionably dressed man, the most graceful dancer and the most brilliant talker of his time. " The picture vanished, and I found myself gazing upon a boundless expanse of sea and sky. In the distance was a vessel, which in a moment I recognized as one of our largest men of war. As it came closer my attention was attracted to an officer, who with a melancholy air was leaning over the rail. I saw that it was Herbert Lester, unchanged save for a drooping blond moustache and an air of pensive sadness. The dwarf inter- posed, " Notice the deep flush that steals over his face as he looks down into the waters? He is thinking of her. Early in his life he was jilted by a maiden whose eyes were just the color of the water where ihe ship rolls back the spray and shows the liquid blue beneath. He has entered the navy because he finds consolation in looking into the water — dreaming that he is once more looking into her eyes. " As the new picture formed I saw a great theater filled with people. On the stage, bowing and sm.iling, was a tall aesthetic singer whom I lecognized as S. B. Lampton. " This, " said the dwarf, " is the very same singer whom you have so often heard on your own Victrola. ou little knew it was your classmate, for he has assumed the name of Belamowski, and from all the vs-orld he hides his real identity. " The scene changed again and I found myself transported to a handsomely fur- nished office. Seated at a mahogany desk was a small man with a jet black moustache, which curled up at the ends with almost unreal precision. His face was heavily lined with wrinkles, but I had no difficulty in recognizing Frank Scott. TTiere was a fierce little air about him as he slammed some of his papers on the desk and stared into space as if worried about something. I never had known anything to worry this carefree youth- so inquired the cause of his present solemnity. To this the dwarf answered: " Although he has risen to be the president of a large bank, he is sorely tried by home affairs. This is the fifteenth year that he has been united to a shrew, and despairing of ever taming her, he often wishes he had married the love of his college days. " The next was indeed a dazzling scene. I found myself blinking as I looked upon 28 a vast ice field that sparkled in the sun. In the center was a large pole with the letter S carved upon it. While I was looking a man came around from the other side of the pole. He was so completely enveloped in a cap and coat of fur that I could see only the tip of his nose, blue with cold. In my perplexity I turned to the dwarf for light. " This, " said he, " is Captain Ray, the explorer, who has just discovered the one and only real and original South Pole. He proposes to carry to the world a conclusive proof of the fact. " I sat expectantly waiting for the first glimmer of the new vision. Nothing appeared — only the vacuity of the pellucent sphere. My patience was almost exhausted when I found myself looking into a dark forest. Then I beheld a man wrapped in skins of wild animals, issuing from the mouth of a lew cave. By the light of the torch, which he bore in one hand, he resembled a beast of the forest rather than a civilized man; for his face and bare arms were tanned, and his hair and beard were long and matted. He ad- vanced slowly to an immense pine tree. Placing his torch upon a flat stone, he seated himself on the ground. At the same time he extended his arms above his head until the palms of his hands rested on the trunk of the tree. I turned to the creature beside me for an explanation. " This is Jean Morse. Years ago he fled from the haunts of men, seeking peace in nature. He lives on v.hat food the field and forest provide and spends his clays in meditating a new philosophy. He is sitting m that position in order to get his soul in harmony with the currents of the earth. " Next appeared a large room, bare save for a few pieces of furniture covered with white canvas. Against the wall leaned a step ladder, but the central figure of the scene was the paper hanger himself, a man of such massive proportions, that standing on the second round of the ladder, he reached the ceiling without the slightest effort. He dexterously moved his brush up and down, up and down, with never ceasing regularity, and as he turned to dip it in the paste I saw that it was J. B. Kirkland. I next found myself looking into a great room filled with men. I immediately recognized the place as the senate chamber at ' ( ' ashington. While I was looking about the room searching for some familiar face or form, my attention was attracted by a gentleman of Pecksnifhan proportions, who rose to speak. The house came to order in- stantly, and several ladies in the balcony tossed flowers to the speaker. I looked at him carefully, and as I looked a feeling of horrified dismay came over me. Could this chubby cheeked thing with expansive white vest, this creature in checked suit, wildly gesticulating and pointing with a fat forefinger be H. H. Boswell? The dwarf nodded, " This is Senator Boswell. As you see, that once romantic figure has waxed rotund and globular, but he is as much sought after by the fair sex as ever; he would rather be charmed by many than chained by one. The theme on which he is now raving is ' The hand that cooks the prunes should taste the political pie. ' A hospital operating room came into view. A man lay on the table, and bending over him was a doctor who seemed to be massaging the patient ' s neck in a peculiar manner. A little Chinese nurse in uniform stood by, constantly handing him fresh banana peeling. This he placed on the neck for a moment, then cast aside for a fresh 29 1A8HILA IS)1S- - poultice. As he turned to give the nurse some directions, I saw his face and recognized R. I. Jolly. The dwarf explained, " He went as a medical missionary to China soon after he received his M. D. from Vanderbilt. In the course of his practice he has discovered a method of settmg broken necks, those broken by hanging a specialty. A pension has been given him by the Chinese government. " Traces of the new vision soon appeared, but confused, as if distorted by violent commotion. Presently the lines took shape, and I saw a suffragette procession moving, with banners streaming, down Pennsylvania Avenue. At the head of the procession vvas a striking figure, mature and matronly, yet militant and defiant. In one hand she carried a silken banner emblazoned with the words, " Death to the Tyrant, " " Women Forever, " while at her side hung a bright sword which she now and then brandished in the sun. They moved somewhat nearer when lo ! I recognized my old classmate, Jane Linfield. The dwarf said, " Woe be unto congress! for this Grand Army of United Suffragette Home Killers is proceeding to the capitol to force through one of their bills, requiring every man to insure his bride against divorce. " Suddenly all this vanished and I could see only what looked to be a starry firma- ment. But it was all awry. The Great Dipper swung up and took a big slice out ol the Milky Way, and Orion, in trying to ward ofl the Little Bear, stuck his sword in the eye of the iVIoon. I looked in astonishment at the dwarf, who pointed to a man in the corner gazing up through a telescope: " They are under the influence of J. T. Weems. He has hypnotized the heavens, so that they are compelled to act at his call. There in a cage in the corner is an inhabitant of Mars, which he drew down by the same hypnotic powers. " The crystal turned and disclosed a man sitting in a little dingy room, furnished scantily with the bare necessities. Suddenly he raised his head and I saw that it vvas W. M. Cain. On his face was an e. pression, first of deep thought, then of sudden en- thusiasm and achievement. He sprang to his feet, seized an odd little silver ornament from the table, twisted and bent the rods that projected from it, and held it aloft trium- phant. 1 he dwarf said in an awed whisper, " Behold the man whose name will soon be on every tongue, whose invention will be a boon to half of humanity. He has contrived an arrangement of invisible mirrors, held in a light metal framework, which placed on the under side of a woman ' s hat or in her pompadour will enable her to see her back hair at all times without the slightest effort. Needle ss to say, his fortune is made. " Hearing footsteps approaching, the weird little man exclaimed, " And now here is the last ol all. " I leaned forward, trembling with expectation mingled with fear. Jus! as the crystal was changing a little red devil jumped out of the fire and stuck a pitchfork in it; the thing exploded and the devil and dwarf vanished in a cloud of smoke. " So fade the glass, and end with it the magic That necromancy did infuse the crystal with. " PROPHET. 30 (J « « B©BA»H1LA 1©!®- - Millsaps Law Class 1912-13 OFFICERS Thomas L.

On behalf of the students we take this opportunity of expressing to inter-class series of football games was omitted. However, the college was able to score two victories over the fast, heavy, and well-trained Prep. team. As everyone knows, we are still forbidden by the conference fathers to take part in inter-coUegiate football. But " Where there is life there is hope. " In basket ball we have been eminently successful. From a squad com- posed largely of Freshmen and Sophomores, Coach Fletcher picked a team which divided a series with the strong A. M. team, and defeated Missis- sippi College three out of four games. At the end of the season we stood tied with the A. M. team for the state championship. Coach Fletcher is to be congratulated upon the success he has had with the team, the majority of whom this year played their first game of inter-coUegiate basket ball. At this writing it is only possible to surmise in regard to baseball and track events, but the outlook for both is veiy promising. Mr. Peaster, a ball player of experience and ability, has been secured to coach the ball team. With a nucleus of nine of last year ' s team to build around and much promis- ing material, prospects for a winning team are very favorable. Mr. Fletcher is also coaching the track team and every afternoon a large squad is out for practice. On behalf of the students we take the opportunity of expressing to Professor E. Y. Burton our appreciation of this undying interest he has always taken in our athletic affairs; and to Coaches Fletcher and Peaster, we would say that we appreciate what they have done toward getting out winning teams at Millsaps.

Galloway 66 L I SHIL It I: Lamar Literary Society Hi ory Although the past year has not been a record breaking one for the Lamar Literary Society, we are proud to state that her men have at least well sustained the reputation and fair name which her members of the past have won for her. When the session of 1912-13 began, the old men found themselves few in number. Undaunted by this, they went to work in the true spirit which has always characterized the men of the L. L. S. The result of their work IS shown not only in the character of the new men obtained, but also by the honors which the society has won. In all of the college contests her men have more than held their own. Her representatives against the other colleges have also reflected credit upon the society. In every field of college activity her influence has been felt. Particularly are we proud of the fact that the society this year as she has so often done before, furnishes the speaker for the M. I. O. A. contest. When one stands within the sacred hall of the L. L. S. and inspired by the pictures of those who have gone before, listens to the speeches and debates which are now being delivered by her members, he can but feel that the future of the society is safe. Indeed, her men will continue to uphold her fair name, believing that success depends upon their realization of her motto, " Nulla palma sine labore " . C. H. B. ' 15. 68 « « B©BA«HILA 1 ' tlt- - Hi ory of the Galloway Literary Society The history of this society can not with justice to her mighty men be wr itten on a page. From the days of her earhest infancy, under the inspiration of the matchless man whose name she bears, the history of the Galloway Society has been published by the actions of her men. They have ever been prominent in every phase of college life, as athletes, as members of the ' oung Men ' s Christian Association, and as students. Two men: — J. B. Mitchell and W. L. Duren — have won both the State and Interstate Oratorical Con- tests. Four others — J. R. Countiss, W. F. Cook, C. A. Alexander, and J. W. Broom — have won the State Contest. Every Editor-in-Chief of the old Collegian was a Galloway man with two exceptions. Three men have edited the Bobashela, while a host of others have served on the editorial staff. The work of this year has been unusually good. The program has always been well rendered and a greater harmony has prevailed th an ever before. These things point to one fact: that the Galloway Society of the future will be as great, yea greater, than the Galloway of the past. J. B. C.

What can be substituted for the sweet, pure influence of the home? Nothing can. These two — mother and home — stand separate and alone in the life of each man, and, taken away, can never be replaced. And yet when the new arrival, facing with trepidation the " Unknown, " gazes around him on Y. M. C. A. " College Night, " sees the hospitality lavished, and the brotherliness prevailing, it is, to his home-sick heart, as a breath from home. Yes, the Young Men ' s Christian Association strives, not only in the " College Night " welcome, but all through college, to take a mother ' s place — in assisting the youth in his studies, in helping him in work, in leaching prin- ciples of manliness and integrity, and in planting his feet on the Rock that IS safe. No father need be afraid to entrust his son to an institution that has a strong and flourishing Y. M. C. A. No doubtful glances are cast at the college whose every student gives his heart-felt support to this organization. It has become so much a part of the great loom of college life, that not a man graduates without showing woven into his life the aims and principles of the Y. M. C. A. Millsaps College has always been fortunate in having a live and virile Y. M. C. A. It is supported alike by students and Faculty. The helpful prayer-meeting services on Friday evenings give the student just the spiritual support he needs during the cares of the week. Nor is this the only religious feature. Classes are organized for the study of the Bible, and especially for the study of missions and some phases of home conditions. The men who have enrolled at Millsaps in the Students ' Volunteer Movement are our special pride. But we must not forget the other two sides of the triangle, " Body, Mind and Spirit. " The organization gives its v hole support to clean athletics and exerts all its influence to inculcate ideals of bodily purity and manly virtue among the students. The self-help bureau, another special feature of the association, is now assisting several men to maintain themselves in college. Much good work has been done in this way. In the intellectual development of the student, the Y. M. C. A. gives its cordial support. The fact that its members stand foremost in college can be pointed to as the fruit of its labor. Thus, in this threefold way, the Young Men ' s Christian Association has become a power for good in our college. It is fulfilling its mission — the mak- ing of MEN. N. B.

Almost automatically an arm shot out from under the covers to shut off the alarm and the man turned over to sleep again. But to no avail; the noise and even the slight effort of the will required to stop the noise had wakened him completely. Half past seven, breakfast at eight, time to get up. He stretched himself and yawned regretfully. Then his eye wandered to the calendar. It was the second of May, his birthday, marking a quarter of a century in his life. He lay back and considered the changes that had come into his life during the last brief year. Long ago he had given up the habit of making New Year resolutions, for the first few weeks of the year resemble a battlefield the day after the fight, and the air is filled with the death rattle of broken resolutions. There seems to be a contagious malady abroad, and there is no wonder that our futile purposings are involved in the general destruction. Hence Frank Hall had chosen his birthday as the best time to make his resolutions. A smile came over his face as he thought. One year ago, as he had approached the end of his university course, he had made two resolutions: never to teach girls and under no circumstances to think of marriage before he was thirty. And here he was a professor in a girls ' college and, what was still worse, he was engaged. That is, he was not engaged but it was not his fault; all he lacked was the girl ' s consent. It was not a long story. Arriving in September he had found among others a certain blue-eyed Senior, Ellen Braughtas, pretty, bright, and blessed with a winsome smile and a happy, care-free disposition that disarmed envy and made friends of all. Before the first month had passed he was blindly in love; in less than two months he had even acknowledged the fact to himself, and in three months he had confessed it to her. He would not have dared to do this but for the fact that, living in a distant state, she spent the Christmas holidays at the college and he was able to see a great deal of her without causing any comment. She seemed much flattered at his declaration, possibly a little coquettish; but it appeared that she did not know her own mind and he could get no definite answer. This hesitation led to a discussion of Jimmie, a girlhood friend of hers, and he used all his eloquence and powers of persuasion to convince her that she could not care for Jimmie. He succeeded so well that she consented to accept 97 BOB SHIL l®IS ' a ring from him, which she would -wear as a remmder of his affection, until she should find that she cared more for someone else. In case she should consent to the marriage, she would transfer the rmg to her engagement finger, and he would try to restrain his joy until after commencement, when the ceremony would take place without the rough and tumble congratulations of her school-mates. And so the matter stood. " Birthday resolutions are no better than the rest, " he muttered as he rose to dress. And yet he could not say that he was sorry that he had broken either of his last two; for he was happy, being m love with love, and the hope that springs eternal whispered m his ear that his love would not be without its reward. At twelve o ' clock he entered the room where his senior class was assembled. By a great exertion of will power he had learned to treat the other members of the class as if they really existed, and so without giving much more than a casual glance to Miss Broughtas he looked over the roll and began his lecture on Browning. He had hardly more than begun when he noticed her hand as she took notes there on the front seat. It was perfectly bare. The sentence died in his throat with a peculiar gurgle; she glanced up and as she did so her left hand, which lay on the outer edge of the desk, turned, and there on the third finger shone the diamond. From that little sparkle it seemed to him that the sun itself had entered the room and filled it with supernatural radiance. He tried to continue, but no words came; something filled his throat as if he were suffo- cating; he felt that he must get outside at once in order to breathe; so with a muttered ' Excuse me for one moment " he left the room. At the door an idea struck him and, hurrying to the office, he phoned to a nearby ice-cream parlor and ordered cream and confections for the whole class, to be sent up at once with men to serve. In ten minutes he was back at his desk and, calm to all outward appearance, he continued his lecture. But the tenor of it was entirely changed; he dwelt at length on the marriage of Browning, the sympathy that he ever found waiting for him at his fire- side, the unity of purpose, the harmony of ideals, the communion of souls. How could a man working under such conditions fail to impress the world with his genius. Never had he waxed so eloquent before. The class ceased to take notes and gazed at him in some surprise, but at any rate they seemed to be interested in what he was saying. As for Miss Broughtas he did not dare to look at her. Then he heard the rattle of wheels on the driveway and the tramp of heavy feet on the stairway. " Young ladies, " he said, " I will close the work of to-day now, for I have a momentous announcement to make. This is my birthday. I will not say which one, but I have not gone so far in hie that I cease to notice the milestones. I confess that I would have felt a little lonely without some celebration of the event, and so I have decided to have one myself. It is rather ungenerous to enforce compulsory attendance on my birthday party in this manner, but I hope that you will enjoy your- selves so well that you will forgive me. " rhey had a merry and memorable hour together. The novelty of the occasion added to the gaiety of the girls, and the years rolled from his shoulders leaving him an irresponsible boy of fifteen. He tried to speak a word alone to Ellen but he was always the center of a chattering group, and she alone seemed to avoid him. Several times he caught her looking at him with a questioning, half-amused expression, but she would not meet his gaze. She must know that all this was for her, the outpouring of an irrepressible flood of joy. The party was what would be called a distinct success. Laughtei filled the room and corridor, chairs were overturned, dresses were soiled, toasts were drunk in spoonfuls of cream with rhymes that would ha e made even Browning turn green with envy, with never a lull in the merriment until the bell announced the dinner hour. He walked across the campus feeling that he must have made a ridiculous fool of himself, and nevertheless he was perfectly content. He who never makes a fool oi " himself IS a fool all the time. He trod upon air, his head in the clouds, breathing the breath of the gods. Suddenly it dawned upon him that he had just passed the dean without speaking. He was sorry for he had ne er felt on so friendly terms with all the world; then he greeted most profusely the janitor who happened to be passing. Entering his room he threw his hat in one corner and his books in the other, and half unconsciously opened a small package that lay on his desk. He noticed from the post- mark that it had been mailed in town that morning. With increasing interest he examined the contents. There lay his ring with a penciled note: " I think I like Jimmie best " . Kit K.AT. 99 « « B©BA«HILA Wt e Cbc idm lt aiiD cabite Published weekly by the Athletic Association of Millsaps College.

The Mississippi Chautauqua Assembly had invited the male colleges of the state to send speakers there to represent them in an oratorical contest, and it is to these representatives that the association owes its founding. 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 was awarded the medal. The second contest was held at Meridian in 1897, and Maurice G. Fulton from the Uni- versity was presented with the prize. The records for the years I 898 and 1 899 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 University, and the fourth, held at Natchez in 1899, was won by a representative of Mississippi College. The fifth contest was held at Vicksburg in 1900, and a Millsaps representative, J. B. 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 1902. At Natchez, in 1903, W. F. Cook, of Millsaps was winner in the eighth contest. History repeated itself at Hattiesburg the next year, when C. A. Alexander won the ninth contest for Millsaps. The tenth contest was held in Brookhaven in 1 905 and resulted in a victory for Edgar Godbold, of Mississippi College, with M. S. Pitman, of Millsaps, a close second. The eleventh contest was held at Kosciusko, May I I, 1906, and E. Webster of the Uni- versity 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, and Brumfield of A. M. was awarded first honor. The fourteenth contest was held at Greenwood; Paul Renshaw of the University was winner. The fifteenth meet was in Greenville; Gillespie of the University was declared the winner. Two years ago the contest was held at Gulfport, and once again Millsaps came out victorious, J. W. Broom winnng first place. Last year at Meridian, Missis- sippi College won first place with G. C. Clark of Millsaps a close second. 104 IA8HILA %m Millsap ' s Representatives to M. I. O. A. Crystal Springs, 1896 J. W. Canada — " Israel Among the Nations. " R. L. Cannon (Subject Unknown).
