Key The day of reckoning is at hand, and the " Old War Horse " has reckoned well. The " objectives " are in sight. Millsaps has come from behind in athletics, and he has been largely responsible. Coach " Zimmie " Zimoski He came to us with a good reputation for knowing sports and has made a better one. In the one year that he has been at Millsaps, he has prod uced a winning foot- ball team, and his other teams show signs of like conduct. Student Manager Combs Bill deserves his position. During his sojourn at Millsaps, he has shown himself deeply interested in her athletic activities. The schedule he arranged for 1922-23 has been a splendid one and is largely due to his tireless efforts. McEwEN, Football Manager Fred ' s inability to play the entire season because of an injury, did not dampen his zeal and interest in football. He worked ceaselessly advertising the games, thus helping to make the 1922 football season a financial success. 69 BOBASHELA, 1923 The 1922 Football Season LR football season did not result in piling up great scores against our adversaries. Since the introduction of inter-collegiate football in Millsaps Col- lege three years ago, the success of each year could not be called even mediocre. This was not imlooked for, however, as no college is expected to produce a winning team in two years ' time. During this embryonic period, the team learned to bear the chagrin of defeat and to experience the exultation of victory. They were drilled, not only in the fundamentals of the game, but in gentlemanly conduct on the field. The student body is to be congratulated on its conduct during this trying period. Defeats were accepted philosophically; victories, with a feeling of elation. Never was that spirit which cheers the team and which binds the student body, lost. And what has been the result? The first game of 1922 was a victory for the Majors. The second was a defeat by Centenary, but not by a large score as was predicted. The Purple and White played a hand-picked team, but made a most creditable showing. The phenomenal surprise of the season came when our ancient rival, Mis- sissippi College, beat us by a score of only 13 to 6. Then came the turning of the tide for the Majors; then came the real victory of the season. The student body saw that the team was a winning one. That element of " knock " was lost; moral support became almost frenzied, such cheering had never before been shown on the campus. The people of Jackson also awakened to the fact that Millsaps possessed fighting ability. Criticism became favorable ; meetings were held to guarantee games; parades were staged; attendance at games became much im- proved ; a spirit of co-operation grew between town and school ; and as a climax to the season, the sportsmen of the town made available a fund of $1,500 to properly e(]uip next year ' s team. Thus ended the 1922 football season; a success, as ours was a moral victory. An everlasting spirit of confidence permeated the student body, and the city of Jack- son assured us of its whole-hearted support. The team added to a reputation for fair play and for gentlemanly conduct on the field, one for being able to put forth real effort and to engage the ei emv in a real and a winning fisht. BOBASHELA, 1923 71 BOBASHELA, 192 3 a faaiBaaa ' itauasmMgaefimnm CLARK-MEiNIORIALj O; IVIlLLSAPS, 39 The season opened with a bang when the Militant Majors trampled the light and inexperi- enced Clark Memorial eleven and romped to victory- on the large end of a 39 to o score. From the kickofF it was apparent that the Baptists from East Mississippi were inferior to the Majors who, before the end of the first quarter, had twice crossed the counting stripe. Six touchdowns were scored. Clark made only two first downs during the game and each time a five-yard off-side penalty aided the Baptists. To J. W. Young, better known as " Stump, " goes the honor of crossing the enemy line for the first touchdown of the season. Jimmie Campbell did some excellent defensive woik in the opening game, lie also smashed the Clark secondary on the offensive. BlRMINGHAM-S(U THKRN, 2 I ; IMlLLSAPSj O The Panthers of Birmingham-Southern were the only opponents of the Majors who turned back the Purple wave without a score. Onlv once did the Majors threaten, and then a fumble on the Panther six-yard line fell under a Ciold and Black warrior — and the Majors threatened no more. The game was played on October 22, 1922, a day of disaster for all Mississippi teams. The Majors were handicapped by the loss of three men from the backfield, and Stovall, regular punter, was suffering from a twisted ankle. " Lightnin ' " l " )avenport carried the day on the defense, according to the comment of the Birmingham papers and the laudations of his team-mates. " Stump " " oung, in ihe backfield, time and again thwarted the Panther ' s aerial attack. MaiTmltHeB smiBSSHK BOBASHELA, I ' .GALLOV Af TACKLE HALF FULL rm ' %i- w- wr . msf u, Nfc- v • m ' W ' sm ' " m - ' Centenary, 21; IMillsaps, 7 Highly touted as one of the strongest teams in the South, the Centenary eleven invaded the Major ' s domain intent on rolling up a large score, approximately a point a minute, so they said. The dope favored them to win by at least seven touchdowns. The fighting spirit of the Majors, an immeasurable (juantity, was not taken into account by the dopesters. Only b y using their entire repertoire and all their substitutes vere the Maroons able to concjuer the Majors. The fighting spirit of the Purple and White was the marvel of the rather limited number of spectators. Charlie " Zip " McCormick intercepted a Centenary pass and raced forty-five yards for the Majors ' touchdown. R. B. " Breezie " Reeves ripped off soine nice gains through the line. The sterling qualities of Walter " Prep " Galloway scintillated during this tilt. NoR rAL, 7; ]MlLLSAPS, 10 Suffering from o er-confidence from their wonderful showing against Centenar , the Majors came near being humbled at the hands of the Pedagogues, a supposedly easy victim. Early hi the first ([uarter, the Majors marched down to the Normal twenty-yard line where " Bubber " Galloway booted a field goal from placement. Then the Majors lagged. McCormick saved the day when, in the fourth quarter, he shot a perfect thirty-five-yard pass into the waiting arms of " Chick " Nelson, who was behind the Normal goal line. " Breezie " Reeves was a big factor in driving through the Normal line. " Prep ' Galloway did some excellent work, both defensively and offensively. 73 BOBASHELA, 1923 C.Galloway QUARTER Cully CENTER Howard, 7; Millsaps, 14 Fighting tooth and toe nail through the first two quarters to a scoreless tie, the Bulldogs and the Majors gave Jackson fans as pretty a battle as was staged on the local field during the season. In the second half, the Majors showed their real game, coming from behind to win. In the third (juarter, a fumble on the Major ' s forty-yard line was recovered by a Bulldog, who raced through an open field for a touchdown. Then it was that the Purple and ' hite tore through the Bulldog machine with a regularity that carried them from the kick-off to within a striking distance of the Howard goal. Holding on the part of the Majors drew a fifteen-yard penalty on the first down, leaving a gap of twenty-seven yards to cross the goal line. Three plays made twenty-five yards and first down. " Chick " Nelson was elected to smash over for the touchdown. And in one smash at the line, " Chick " delivered. The Bulldogs kicked and again the Majors marched steadily toward that coveted goal line. But the Howard defense held and the ball went over. The Bulldogs had spent their force and were unable to make consistent gains, so were forced to kick. Three times they held the Majors after steady offensive moves had carried the oval well into Red and Blue territory. At the beginning of the fourth quarter the Majors, gaining second wind, started goalward again. A varied attack carried the ball to the Howard eight-yard line where " Chick " Nelson was again called upon for necessary yardage, and in a smashing drive over left tackle, he went over for the second touchdown. CuUey ' s work far surpassed his usual steady game. He was in on every play and smeared the Ho vard offensive with clock-like regularity. C. Galloway was the general who made the win possible. " Red " Plummer, though only a sub, was a power in checking a Howard comeback. BOBASHELA, 192 3 %, OAltEY GUKRU HALF Mississippi College, 13; Millsaps, 7 The result of the annual Major-Choctaw tilt was quite a shock to the entire state. The Choctaws were doped an easy winner b}- six touchdowns by the sharks who forecast games, but these sharks received the jolt of their lives in the opening quarter of the game. From the kick-off, the Majors marched to the Choctaw four-yard line, and only a lucky break in the form of an intercepted pass stemmed the rush of the Purple wave. They kicked out of danger, and the Majors again started goalward and advanced to the Choctaw ten-yard line before being again checked. A punting duel followed and the quarter closed with the ball in Choctaw possession near midfieid. In the second quarter, the Choctaw steam roller worked and they chalked up the first touchdown on straight line bucks. In the third quarter the Major defense again faltered and before the rushing Chocta vs could be checked they had crossed the Purple and ' hite goal again. With the score 1 3 to o against them in the fourth quarter, the Majors opened with their offensive ace. Daring aerial attacks, line plunges and end runs placed the ball on the Choctaw one-yard line. " Chick " Nelson smashed over the line for the first points ever scored by Millsaps against the Choctaws in football. It was in this game that the freshman triumvirate shone forth with a radiance that could not be denied. " Chick " Nelson, " Pole " Webb, and " Skinney " Oakey were the standard bearers of the Class of 1926. " Chick " made repeated gains around end and through the line. " Pole " and " Skinney " opened hole after hole in the Choctaw line, while on the defense they presented an im- pregnable barrier. BOBASHELA, 1923 Brooks END Stoyall TACKLE Ole Miss, 19; Millsaps, 7 Crippled and minus the services of the freshmen, the Majors entered the final game of the season with the grim determination to hold " Ole Miss " to a minimum score. The Majors were admittedly weaker than " Ole Miss. " The Purple and White lacked substitutes, while on the " Ole Miss " bench sat nearly another team. It was Thanksgiving and the largest crowd that ever attended a Millsaps ' football game was on hand. The game opened amid the cheering of supporters of both teams. It was evident from the first play that the game would be bitterly contested. The first (juarter ended scoreless. In the second ([uarter " Ole Miss " scored on a varied attack, but failed to kick goal after touchdown. A pass from McC ' ormick to lirooks from midfield and a fifty-yard dash by Brooks featured the game and resulted in a touchdown for Millsaps. A kicked goal by C. Galloway gave the Majors a 7 to 6 lead. Barbour intercepted a pass and raced forty yards to a touchdown. The half ended with " Ole Miss " in the lead by 12 to 7. During the third period the reserves began to batter down the tiring Millsaps ' forwards and successive line smashes carried the ball over. Barbour delivered the point after touchdown by a kick from placement. The wonderful dash of Brooks, after receiving the pass, and his general work in this game, marked him as one of the best ends in the state and, as a result, he was chosen for the mythical all-state eleven. Stovall was a power in the line, and his punting was the best of the season on the local grounds. He also made the all-state eleven. Maske played the best gaine ever and it was certain that a runner tackled bv him was downed. 76 BOBASHELA, 1923 Junior Majors Football Season, 1922 OR the first time since Millsaps entered the intercollegiate football world, a Freshman team has had scheduled games with the teams of other institutions. Four games were played by the team of 1922, and though the result in games won was not what was most desired, it was at least a be- ginning. The Freshman Team received only general instruction at the hands of the Coach who had his hands full putting a creditable varsity in the field with only a limited amount of material. He could not be expected to spend much time with the Junior Majors, as the freshmen were called. The first game played by the freshmen was against the Philadelphia High School eleven. The breaks were all against the Juniors, but despite this and the fact that they had only practiced signals two days before they left for the enemy ' s territory, they were only beaten by a score of 6 to o. The second game was played with the Mississippi Deaf and Dumb School eleven on local grounds and the Jimiors ran roughshod over the " Dummies. " The final score was 36 to O in favor of the freshmen. Two games were played with the freshman team of Vlississippi College. In the first, on the local grounds, the Papooses won the decision, after a battle that was not decided until the last whistle. A touchdown in the second quarter gave the Papooses six points, and a goal from placement added one more, giving them a 7 to o decision over the Junior Majors. The final game of the freshman schedule was played on Provine field, the hunting ground of the Papooses. Here Lady Luck took a hand, giving the Choctaw under- lings two touchdowns on flukes. The Jiuiiors crossed the Papoose goal in the second half, and kicked goal from placement, giving them the seventh point. The final score was: Papooses, 14; Junior Majors, 7. The games played gave the freshmen some excellent experience so that vhen the call is sounded for candidates for the varsity in 1923 they will be well fitted to begin training for places thereon. BOBASHELA, 1923 BOBASHELA, Basketball, 1922 The basketball season of 1922 could not be viewed as entirely successful from the point of view of scoring. Though the Purple and White was never defeated by a great difference in score, some jinx seemed to have camped on our trail and all but one game was lost. The handicap of having no adequate place to practice was never overcome, and the greater part of the season a majority of the regulars were continu- ously on the sick list. Ole Miss 3).

Again the jinx followed us and the majority of winning scores were on the side of our opponents. Every man played his position as a star, and the co-operation of the team was marked throughout the sjiring. There seemed, however, to be that something lacking which would give us the big end of the score. The brilliant feature of the season was our twice defeating the strong " Ole Miss " team. They came to us fully expecting to send us to an ignoble defeat. The im- expected happened, however, and they were the ones who were humbled.

The Purple and AVhite, under the leadersliip of Collins, prepared quietly, and when they went to Clinton the first week in May of last year, hardly anyone knew of their going. Their return was triumphant, however, and a Choctaw scalp was hanging at the waist of every one of the victors. The Majors won the meet by a score of 34 to 42. f ' irst place was taken in seven events. First place in the high jmiip was tied by a Major, and second place was easily gained in se en events. We are proud of the result of the 1922 track season, accomplished witliout the aid or direction of any sa ' e those wlui took part. Can we not make this slio ing a precedent ? 84 BOBASHELA, 1923 WWWBWWWWWHMMWMMtt flWT ' Tennis, 1922-1923 Interest in tennis at ]VIillsaps College has always been intense. In the spring of 1922, the college doubles championship was won by Burton Ford and Walter Stokes, both members of the Class of ' 22. " Fish " Donald won the coveted honor of singles championship, a place that he has held since his entrance in college. Those interested in the game were not satisfied with letting the ability of our cham- pions confine itself to the campus. A match was arranged with Mississippi College, and Stokes, Ford, and Donald invaded the enemy ' s territory on Monday, May 22, 1922. They came back victorious, Stokes and Ford winning the doubles match and Donald, the singles. Mississippi Colleg e attempted to take the double championship to Clinton in the early fall of ' 23, but failed, Chatony anil Donald winning the match.

Sc.ictcSi FlisluiUiU Co-id 128 Gleanings from the English Department EBSTER ' S dictionary defines humor as the faculty of discovering, expressing, or appreciating the ludicrous or the incongruous. It is in the interest of accuracy that in the first instance the connective or rather than and is used. Otherwise, the definition would exclude some of the most genuine humor of America — that of the American college. No reference is intended to such humor as is found in the column of jokes in the college newspaper or magazine. Much of that is clever but most of it is self-conscious. The unconscious humor of the American college student is more enjoyable than his self-conscious humor. When the student ex- presses the ludicrous or the incongruous without either discovering or appreciating it, his humor is likely to be at its best. Witness, for example, the following extracted from freshman compositions: One young man thoughtlessly shared with us a secret. He must have been of a type rather sentimental. Anyway, when writing of a particularly pleasant camping trip of a day ' s duration, he closed his composition by the statement that " After supper we got into a boat and fished and loved until about ten or eleven o ' clock. " One who, no doubt, believed in a life close to nature, gave the follow;ing as part of a plan for building a cabin: " To get everything ready, one needs five-foot planks about sixteen feet long and one inch thick. One will also need several pounds of nails and some cold tar. " After the actual building of the cabin was completed, the same student described the method by which the wintry winds could be kept from chilling the bones of the occupant. " The next thing to do is to chink all the cracks with cotton, then pour tar in the cracks on the cotton so the cotton cannot come out and the tar will also stop the cracks, " he said. If the materials were applied with the rashness as were the words describing the operation, no doubt the cabin was warm. The rural school system of our state comes in for severe criticism from some of those who have been keenly observant. " A longer school term would give more time to the incompetent instructors to drill work into the students, " avers one who is interested in education. The heads of our educational system should take note. Another who has investigated the conditions of sanitation, states that " Germs are left lying around on the ground. " Still another has had his aesthetic sense offended by an unsightly struc- ture when he contends that " The rural school in some localities is still clinging on to the tradition of a one-teacher school set up on some little hill with no more architectural beauty than a goods box. " Those who have advanced beyond the freshman year have also supplied us with a laugh or so. One student with more information than ability to express it, says " The Pardoner of the Canterbury Tales has a piece of the sail which was on the ship that Peter was on when Jesus saved him, and a cross, and pigs ' bones. " The same student averred that " Faustus wished he had never been born many times over. " Another student was somewhat unfair to the alliterative quality of Anglo-Saxon verse when he said that " The author of Beoivulf made his poetry illiterate. " It may well be, however, that to such a student the term " illiterate " seems more fit. Another divulges the information that " Chaucer was present at the unsuccessful capture of Rheims. " By the way, has not Rheims been more than once " unsuccessfully captured? ' ' The story of Doctor Faustus loses somewhat in dignity at the hands of the " slinger of slang " who says, " Dr. Faustus sold his soul to the devil for pleasure. After awhile this got old to the Dr. and he wanted to swap back, but nothing doing. " The sublime Milton comes in for rough treatment at the hands of an unappreciative student, who declares that " Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained are epic poems written in prose. " Having applied the word prose to the works of John Milton, what could he hold in reserve for the so-called poetry of Amy Lowell. 129 BOBASHELA, 1923 Edward King, the friend of Milton, is found transformed in the statement of a student who savs, " Lycidas is an elegy on the death of King Edward who was drowned in the Irish Sea. " We might very truly add that there is " Nothing of him that doth change But doth suffer a sea-change Into something rich and strange. " Another student explains that " A characteristic of Sterne was his mentalism. " We are led to believe that the characteristic is as unusual as the term applied to it. The word seems to have no possible connection with sentimentalism. The information that " Dryden wrote a great deal of political satire, which was wildly read and had a great influence, " calls to mind the fact that a similar reception has often greeted political writings of a much lower order in the state of Mississippi. In statements of different students there is found a history of the beginning and the end of Swift ' s political career. One says, " Swift led a dull life up to this time, and then went into politics. " Another concludes the sad story saying, " Swift was a politician while in London; he returned home and went crazy. " The student who afHrmed that " Swift wrote the Dunciad, which is a defense of the Irish people, " probably had no aspirations for any of the great politic offices in American life, such as policeman. Mayor of Boston, or President of these I ' nited States. Dryden ' s .1 nnus Mirahilis is transformed into the weird, but no less interesting, " Animalis Manulius. " Sounds like a Roman cattle disease, doesn ' t it? The same patient Latin student avers that " Pope translated Livid. " " Pope, " a student says, " was born a physical wreck. " Poor Pope, so much less fortunate than most of us, who have, at least, a hand in the shaping of ourselves. Blake, who wrote Songs of Innocence and Experience, js accused of writing Songs of Indolence. It is not the first time a poet has been so accused. Could it be Johnson ' s Life of Savage or Macaulay ' s Essay on Johnson which is responsible for the severe judgment of the student who says, " Sam Johnson wrote Tlie Life of a Savage, which is a portrait of his own life while in London. " Jo m Gilpin ' s Ride can scarcely be recognized in the statement to the effect that " The greatest of Cowper ' s works is Jo in Gibbon ' s Riols. " The rose loses some of its sweetness when called by such another name. An even worse lot befalls Wordsworth ' s Intimations of Immortality, which is found variously spoken of as Inclinations to Immortality. Intimations of Mortality, Imitations of Immortality, and, (iod save the mark. Inclinations to Immorality. After such treatment of the great ode of the gentle egoist, one cannot be more than mildly surprised to read from a student that " Wordsworth wrote imaginary poetry. " And yet, Jeffiey, wishing to say his worst for Wordsworth ' s most prosy and pedestrian style, could not have said it more unkindly. Another would-be critic answers that " Jane Austen ' s work has the freedom of uncertainty. " The statement, though somewhat misplaced, seems suggestive of a large truth. Have you ever thought how bound in, how limited, certainty is, as compared with the tremendous freedom of uncertainty ? The statement sounds soinewhat out of harmony with Morris ' ordinarv style and subject- matter, but it is none the less interesting to be informed that, when Milanion marries Atalanta, " The King gave his daughter a big dairy. " Such doweries are even yet held in high esteem. Notice, too, the simple and pathetic rendering which a student gives the lover ' s case in Rosetti ' s Blessed Damozel — " He thinks he hears the voice of the maiden singing in Heaven, but he awakes and finds it is only a s iuirrel singing in the trees. " I ' .ven the poorest speller ma sometimes make a virtue of his defect, and stumble upon a statement so suggestive of truth as the following: " Byron, after biting his sweetheart good-bye, went to Cainbridge, where he gave his attention to history and friction. " Though such statements, by the great American college student, bear with them, for the teacher, the sting of defeat, in many cases the unconscious humor of the deliverance brings, along vith the sting, an effective antidote. 130 BOBASHELA, 1923 Tke Poet ' s Corner WISE AND OTHERWISE By D. F. McNeil »ervice I seek to gain the greatest heights That mortals may attain; I care not for the flow ' ry ways, The laurel wreath of fame. I have not sought for shining gold My pleasures to alloy; I only seek that happiness In service we enjoy. I care not now for empty praise For deeds I haven ' t done ; But when the last farewell is said, The battle ' s fought and won, I hope to leave some work of worth Within the hearts of men, To help them as they go along The victory to win. And, so in service do we find The joy that all men seek, And some reward is given for Each kindh ' word we speak. The plaudits that the crowd can give Will wither and decay, But memory of a service done Will never pass away. Faint Heart My lady fair, Her golden hair Let ' s fall a-down her shoulder; I ' d steal a tress — She ' s no redress — ■ Were I a little bolder. From her sweet lip A bee might sip. Sweeter than rose-leaf ' s savor. A kiss I ' d take — No cry she ' d make — Were I a little braver. Her neat, trim waist Just suits my taste. Close in my arms I ' d fold her. And clasp her tight — She ' d feel no fright — Were I a little bolder. She ' s waiting now ' Till I find how To ask of her a favor. She ' ll be my wife — I ' d stake my life — ■ When I ' m a little braver. Love on the Campus Dan Cupid has a funny way Of going ' round about his work. Upon the campus every day This little god is seen to lurk; And if we looked we all might see This tiny sprite extolling fee. In every car, on every bench. At least one pair is seen to sit. And Cupid ' s arrows seem to wrench Each heart; and so the flame is lit That grows into a flame the while The older ones sit back and smile. And e ' en among the guilty ones Are many Sophs and Juniors, too; And in the lists there often comes A Senior, though these are but few; So thus the evil grows and grows — Where will it end? Oh, goodness knows! Yet I ' ll not mention names for fear Of libel suits or something such ; But I will whisper in your ear If you will promise me this much — That you ' ll not tell a single soul From whom this god ' s receiving toll. But, no I won ' t; I ' ll think a while Before I give the names. But, say! It seems I see a damsel smile. So I can ' t give myself away. And thus the moral is made plain — Don ' t dig a ditch — you ' ll fall therein. 131 BOBASHELA, 192 3 Calendar Sept. 23 — School officially opened on arrival of Mr. Mahoiiey.

PINKHAM IN LOVE SCANDAL I Famous Lady Royally F»rominent Senior a Eriteptained Wliile in City Victim of a Fickle Heart Jackson, Miss., Oct. 4. — Miss Lydia E. Pinkhani. one ot the world ' s foremost benefactors of the human race, was given a re- ception in the home of Miss Belle Lindsey yesterday afternoon be- tween the hours ot four and six. Miss Pinkham is en route to Mongolia, where, she states, she has found a new root that is a panacea for all ills. She is most enthusiastic in her endorsement of the new remedy. " It will cure corns, dandruff, stomach trouble, eczema, ear ache and most anything, " she stated, " and the beauty about the whole thing is that we are going to be able to put dollar bottles on the market for only thirty-five cents. " Miss Pinkham is a somewhat portly woman about five feet tall, and was gorgeously clad in an amber colored gown of tulle. She wore a pair of latest blaek pumps studded with emeralds, and hose to match. As she entered the reception hall she was warmly greeted by women who have benefitted from her wonderful remedy. After ac- BLACK CAUSES SENSATION New Style Introdueed to Jlillsaps Students. knowledging the greeting, she de- livered a short talk on the virtues of. her remedy in which she urged that all beware ot the imitations which are flooding the market. " Demand the original Lydia E. Pinkham ' s Compound, " she con- cluded with a flourish. The reception room was taste- fu ' .ly decorated with herbs that are used in the compound while the walls were covered with testi- monials and covers from bottles. The testimonials were gathered from newspapers from every cor- ner ot the United States. After serving punch which had been spiked with several bottles of the natural remedy, the reception came to an end. Miss Lindsey is being congratu- lated by her many friends over the success of yesterday afternoon ' s entertainment, while Miss Pink- ham has added a host of those who have been sufferers to those who now enjoy perfect health. Millsaps College, Oct. 12. — " Get a bathing suit, " urged Mr. M. M. Black, treasurer ot Millsaps Col- lege, this morning in a short talk to the student body. Mr. Black was all smiles when he appeared garbed in a boldly cut, one-piece bathing suit, striped with the most popular colors. He also wore his usual derby and car- ried his sun shade. " I have trouble in keeping my papers tog ' ether, " Mr. Black stated, " as there are no pockets, but I find the suit particularly ap- propriate when I visit the dining hall. " " The last time I visited the boys — it was at an early hour in the nioming I believe — my spirits were a bit dampened so I thought It best to prepare myself. " P. K. MOVEMENT ENDORSED BY PROF ' Handsome " Harmon of Millsaps College Says " Get iu the Swim. " .lackson. Miss.. Jan. 31. — Profes- sor Frances S. Harmon, better known as " Handsome, " a promi- nent member ot the Millsaps Col- lege faculty, has endorsed the great P. ■ K. movement that is sweeping the country. On the morning ot January 2S Professor Harmon was surprised by a reporter of " Le Scandale. " while seated in an automobile with one ot the fair co-ed vamps of Millsaps. The reporter, who was passing near the cars, heard a low mumble proceeding from a new Essex parked near the steps. He stole behind it and this is what he saw: Mr. Harmon was holding the fair young thing in a tight em- brace; he was tenderly whispering sweet nothings in her ear. By some trick of fate, the re- porter sneezed and surprised the two lovers. Mr. Harmon seemed (Continued on page 2.) Necessity for reporting the escapade of J. B. Ahney is de- plored by this paper. We hate to color our sheet with " yellow " stuff, but the facts happened and wo must print what follows: Mr. Abney. a member of the Millsaps College student body, and an aspirant for a political office, became illusioned. He thought that a man to become prominent in Mississippi politics must mix himself in some scandal. Working on this theory, Mr, Abney proceeded to become mixed in a scandal. Joe, who has always had the reputation of one who breaks hearts, became infatuated with a fair co-ed. Well, the affair continued and the girl fell madly in love with " Jomio. " She denied herself the companj ' of every other boy and RIVERS APPLEWHITE SUES FORMER LOVER .Alleged I ' raternit.v -Man Defendant. Miss Rivers Applewhite, nine- teen and nifty, surprised her friends yesterday by announcing that she had brought suit for $5,- 000,000 against Smily Charlesbro, alleged frat man, who has been unduly attentive to her lately. The exact cause of the suit is not known, and because of her timid nature, it is hard to draw- Miss Applewhite into a discussion ot her case. She says, however, that the suit is a result of lack of affection. Miss .Applewhite alleges that Smily caused her to contract a severe cold, to lose the use of her voice for two and a half days and that during the time of her sick- ness, he paid no attention to her. In commenting further, she said. " I first met Smily — as I af- fectionately called him — two years ago at a dance at the Firemen ' s Hall on the Gulf Coast. He gave me a grand rush, cooed to me be- neath the moo n and to the laugh- l Continued on page 2.) awaited the popping of the fatal question. It nevei ' came. Joe saw an- other. His fickle heart tired of tlie first fair one and he .sought another field of conquest. Feeling between the two ladies involved, became intense; and finally a hair pulling occurred with fatal results. " I should not be held resjion- sible, " said Mr. Abney on being interviewed. " Because they fall for me is no fault of mine. " The first lady concerned is suing J. B. for $100.00 and breach of trust. Joe is Jubilant. He says that his entrance into the political arena is marked for success be- cause of the " affairs " in which he has participated. PROF. BOWEN ' S QUICK RECOVERY " I Mas a Broken Man for Twentj- Years. Now I ' m Well. " " Having tried every doctor in tliree states, changed climate, un- derwear, and cooks a half-dozen times, I continued deplorably weak as far as my physical condition was concerned, " says C. Asbeen Bowen, H. E. N., P. K., Profes- sor of Instruction at Millsaps College. " I was unable to leave off my overcoat either in winter or in summer, had to wear my over- shoes continually, even to bed, and was lost without my umbrella, " Mr. Bowen continued. " One day while being treated at the Charity Hospital. I secured a bottle of ' An-i-lac. ' I took one dose and felt better than a man with a pair of monkey glands. I took another dose and felt like a man of twenty. The third dose reduced my years by three more. I was afraid to drink further. " Continuing his praise of this natural remedy, Prof. Bowen said that after he had taken several doses, he gave the bottle to his wife for furniture polish. At an- other time his Ford gave out ot gas. and " An-i-lac " was used in the engine to great advantage. LE SCAN DALE Le Sc and ale Published by the Gossip Mongers of Millsaps College.

Dr. Watkins astonished the stu- dent body on Wednesday morning when he announced that the " lid is off, " and in celebration the col- lege was going to bear the expense of a big dance to bo given next Tuesday. He also said that hereafter the • ■ ' lUcge is going to encourage the- atricals, and urged that the Y. W. C. A. stage a musical comedy ,ifter the order of the " Broadway Review. " This action, he announced, was taken at the behest of Professors I in, Bowen, and Noble, All per- formances will be under the direct supervision of Dr. Noble. Jackson, Miss., Mar. 4. — As an aftermath of his unreserved en- dorsement of the great P. K. Movement, and because of pi ' es- sure from the other members of the faculty. Prof. F. .S. Harmon, history lecturer, is going to intro- duce a course in love making. " I have had wide experience with women, " says Mr. Harmon. " I have tamed those from the wild and woolly pine forests in South Mississippi to the ciueens of the underworld in Paris. " " I know ' em, " the Professor laughingly remarked, on being in- terviewed by a " Le Scandale " re- porter. The course will be rather expen- sive as the strain on Mr. Harmon ' s heart will warrant an extra charge. The membership, of course, will be confined to the feminine ele- ment of the student body, and will be limited. Plans for organization arc as yet incomplete, but Mr. Harmon says that the class will meet from 9;30 to — ■ each night. Each class is to consist of only one girl, as the import of the work will not allow a greater number. " I have an entirely new method, l)y wliich a girl may get a man. " " .Special attention, " he con- cluded his interview, " will be given to hugging and kissing. I can teach a girl 75 ways to kiss. " Ho, girls, come early for a front seat.

" He accompanied me to church regularly, at which place he sliowiMl his entire disregard for my feelings a short time ago. " One cold January morning. I attended the church of Smily — how I love that name — and he opened a window behind the seat in which I was sitting. Thinking he meant only to cool me, I said nothing. But the draft continued, I became cold, I shivered. I got numb, soon stilT. But he only laughed in derision. He was sil- ting by another and refused to close the window. " Sickness resulted in Ihe condi- tion of silence mentioned and I eiuihl see nothing else to do but to sue. " I loved Smily — 1 love him yet. Because of that little spark that is left in my heart, I am asking only lfS.Ofl0,n00 balm, " The musical comedy, followed by a dance, given by the Y. W. was a huge success. The girls who took part are to be compli- mented on the bewitching cos- tumes they wore. Dr. Noble also deserves an undue amount of praise for the success of the per- formance. The skill with which the girls danced and acted showed that they had been directed by a master. Dr. Noble said that he had given years of study to the m.usical comedy and that since re- siding in Jackson he has never missed a performance at the local play house. The play was carried out in a rather novel fashion. The officers of the Y. TV first appeared and gave a most fetching interpreta- tion of the dance of spring. The officers were followed by the vari- ous committees, each giving a comic sketch, song, or dance. There was really no plot to the performance but it wa.s thoroughly enjoyed by those present. The most exciting event of the evening was the dance following the performance. It was given in the living room of Galloway Hall. For the occasion the Millsaps or- chestra had been secured — and the Jazz music they did turn out. " Jazz Hound " Sullivan kept the place in an uproar by his antics and the uncanny music he drew from his bass viol. The e.xpected always happens. There was one rather tipsy per- son on the floor. Johnny Fergu- son got loose after a few too many draughts from a little brown jug, and caused quite a commotion by his attempts to sing. He was taken from the hall, though, and the remainder of the evening was uneventful.

Never before on the campus was such a scene of comradery wit- nessed. The members of Kappa Delta could sec virtue only in Phi Mu, and vice versa. It is going to be hard for the freshmen to choose this year which organiza- tion they intend to join. The entertainment took iilaee in the gym, which was tastefull.v di ' eoiuted.
