Although this is no patent medicine ad- vertisement, we are sure that if you will only read the book sympathetically the memory of your youth will be restored, your heart will be warmed by the friendly faces, and your spirit will be made stronger by the spirit of Millsaps, which you will find to crop out on some unexpected page. In the Senior sketches and in the fea- ture section we have, at times, ap- proached caricature, and have ventured to joke a little, knowing that no one is offended by friendly banter. We wish to express our thanks to those students who, by co-operation and sacrifice, have been responsible for that which is good in the ' 24 Bobashela. t (Enlle m BOOK I Bobaskela 19 2 4 MAIN BUILDING Bobashela 19 2 4 LIBRARY BUILDING w ja Bohashela 19 2 4 DORMITORY 13 Bobashela CITY VIEWS M BobasJiela 19 2 4 n Board of Trustees of Millsaps College Officers Bishop W.

Watkms, An Appreciation OR the past eleven years the roll of the Faculty, as it appeared in the " Bobashela, " has been headed by the name of Doctor A. F. Watkins, as president of the college. This year it appears as President Emeritus. Therefore it is fitting that the " Bobashela " should contain an appreciation of the man who has guided the fortunes of this institution for more than a decade, and to recount the progress which our Alma Mater has made in the years of his presidency. When D. C. Hull resigned the presidency of Millsaps College in 1912 the trustees of the college had under consideration many distinguished men as possible successors to that high position. Among them was a man who had served with brilliant distinction in many responsible positions in the Methodist Church in Mississippi, and in the South at large, and who had rendered great service in the establishment of the college. It is inspiring to hear a distinguished banker of Mississippi, now a loyal trustee of the college, tell of the fine young minister who first roused the Methodists of Mississippi by his advocacy of the project of establishing a great Methodist college in our state. The trustees accordingly placed in charge of the college, Dr. A. F. Watkins, who now closes a notable administration. Dr. Watkins sprung from a family distinguished for ability and character and for services to the church and the state. His father, Doctor William H. Watkins, was one of the most eminent ministers of the Methodist Church in Mississippi and was a member of the historic General Conference which separated the Methodist Episcopal Church into the Northern and Southern branches. Many members of his family are now prominent in Mississippi and Louisiana. It is not within the purpose and scope of this article to recount the honors which have come to Dr. Watkins in the service of his church, but hardly any other Methodist has occupied so many high positions in the gift of his brethren, or has rendered so eminent or varied service to his church and the cause for which she stands. Only a few of the many high offices which he has filled with distinction can here be noted, but a sketch of him, though brief, would be incomplete without some account of his work as a minister. Coming of so staunch a Methodist family, it was to be expected that he would attend a Methodist college, and while but a youth he won distinction in Centenary College, at Jackson, Louisiana, the Alma Mater of so many distinguished men of Mississippi and Louisiana. Yanderbilt University was then in its mighty youth, and attracting the choicest young men of the South to obtain a type of education not equalled in the South, except at the University of Virginia. Among the remarkable group of young men who attended Vanderbilt, one of the most promising was young A. F. Watkins, drawn thither from Centenary by the fame of the new seat of learning and his own steadfast determination to be content with none but the best. Among the ablest of that fine band, he was distinguished by his personal charm, his lofty character, his scholarship, and his devotion to Christian ideals. From the beginning of his ministry in the Mississippi Conference, to which he came on graduation from Vanderbilt, he advanced steadily and rapidly. He filled the best appointments with great success, and soon became known beyond the bounds of his home conference. He frequently represented his conference in the councils of the church at large, and was as eminent among the leaders who assembled at the General Conference of Southern Methodism and the Ecumenical Council of World-wide Methodism as he was in his home conference. Among the many positions of honor which he held were these: Field agent of the Superannuate Endowment Fund of Southern Methodism, delegate to the Ecumenical Council, member of the Board of Missions of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South; seven times delegate to the General Conference, president of the Methodist Educational Association, and secretarv of the General Conference for sixteen years. It is a notable fact that, as his father was a member of the General Conference whose action divided Methodism into two bodies, so Doctor A. F. Watkins was a member of the Joint Commission on Unification which labored so earnestlv for several years to perfect plans for bringing together the two great branches of Methodism. To the presidency of Millsaps College, Doctor Watkins brought many eminent gifts. He had been president of Whitworth College, field agent for the establishment of Millsaps College, and a trustee of the institution for twenty-three years. He was a trained and acc urate scholar, Bobashela y mm ? 19 2 4 H of great personal charm and social gifts, a master of English, a man of striking presence on the platform and in the pulpit, able to deal on even terms with men of the first order of ability, and habituated to the management of large affairs. In addition to high ideals in scholarship and in morality, he illustrated something frequently lacking, but eminently desirable in the education of young men — the graces and finish of the best and most enlightened society. " Manners maketh man, " says an old English author. It is not a small thing that the president of Millsaps College should be a man, not only of scholarship and integrity, but that he should be a man of urbanity and an illustration of the graces that adorn life. Those who have known Doctor Watkins most intimately will bear the readiest testimony to the statement that no petty or unworthy sentiment ever found utterance by his lips, or showed in his life. The advancement of the college duung his administration speaks for itself. When he became president the college had no dormitories for college students, as distinguished from those of the academy, except the " Cooper House, " an old frame building badly in need of paint and repairs. Now there are two large brick dormitories equipped with every modern convenience. The main building burned down in the second year of Doctor Watkins ' administration. In its stead promptly rose the present administration building — fine, commodious, and costing more than twice as much as the building which was burned. If it had to be erected now it would cost four times as much. The dormitory of the Preparatory School burned in the first year of his presidencv. On its site stands a restored building better than the old one. A book store and a " hut " for the Y. W. C. A. have been added to the plant of the college. The old library, built on a marl foundation which has shifted and so rendered the building unsafe, is to be replaced bv a library costing more than three times the sum spent on the old one. The whole of the negotiations for the rebuilding of the library has been conducted by Doctor Watkins, who deserves the credit for the unusual action of the Carnegie Board in replacing with a better structure the library building which we have lost. The academic advancement of the college has been notable in the period of Doctor Watkins ' presidencv. When he came the faculty of the college consisted of eight men, including the president, who taught some classes. When he withdrew the faculty had grown to the number of seventeen. In the first year of his presidency the students numbered 144 in the Department of Arts and Sciences. In the last year of his presidency they numbered 329. In the first year of his administration the college had an endowment of $300,000.00; when he retired it had doubled that sum. The college was admitted to the Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Southern states in 1912, the first year of his presidency. It then became officially recognized as of the highest rank by all the standardizing bodies of the nation. Two of the men whose college training was received under his presidency have been elected Rhodes Scholars from Mississippi. In choosing his faculty he kept in mind a certain type of man, and so succeeded in establishing a singularly unified body of men as instructors in the college. Of the sixteen professors in the college when he retired, he had selected fourteen. Among, them there is co-ordinated effort for a commond end, but no jealousies and no jars. After he had chosen them he stood by them, and consistently and persistently did all in his power to advance their salaries and their efficiency. His interest in the college remains unabated. One thing he accomplished which has not yet borne its full fruitage of success, but which will mean much to the college in later years: In company with Mr. W. M. Buie he obtained from the General Education Board the conditional gift of $100,000.00 to the endowment fund of the college, given to insure a raise of salaries for the faculty, provided the college obtains $250,000.00 from some other source. When that sum is raised the endowment will be three times what it was when Doctor Watkins became the official head of Millsaps College. The School of Education was established in his administration, and has attained a high rank among such departments. The W. S. F. Tatum School of Religious Education was established with an endowment of $100,000.00 and two professors, which gives Millsaps an enviable ran in religious education. Such is the record of the administration of Doctor Watkins. Of course, others have aided, but he has directed. And now he returns to his first love — the pastorate — enriched by the stored wisdom of many fruitful years, upheld by the I ' nseen Friend, who has been the source of his strength, and accompanied by the charming and gracious wife, who has been a blessing to him and to all others who have known her. We anticipate for him multiplied usefulness in his labor for his Master. May he have many souls for his hire, and may his path grow brighter until he passes into that sunset which is a dawn. We iv m kneia him sn Inn semi with him our admiration and affection. I . WL . Bobashela 19 2 4 35 SSI s§ Bobashela Graduate Class Ross Henderson Moore, 2l Y JACKSOV, MISSISSIPPI Master of Science G.

Ross thought he could leave us and go to the country to teach the natives, but Millsaps, a Master ' s Degree and an instructorship in chemistry were more attractive. Of course, he can never fill Mr. Patch ' s place; but, when we consider his youth and that he is a devotee of puns, we must admit that he does remarkably well and succeeds in persuading everyone to like him. Honestly, we really do like him, though there ' s no reason why we shouldn ' t. Isaac Hunter Hollingsworth. J T J YAZOO CITY, MISSISSIPPI Master of Arts L. L.

To characterize and immortalize him on these pages, we would say that he is an " athleta superbus, " whose knowledge meant much to the Majors, a talker whose flow of words would startle Cicero, if he could hear him, and a prince of good fellows. He has but one great fault — he forsakes us even- week-end for Yazoo City. Clarence Eugene Manning, A ' 2 ' JACKSON - , MISSISSIPPI Master of Science Science Club; Ramblers ' Club; Y. M. C.

No matter whether we win or whether we lose, come what may, this " smiling pitcher " smiles and pitches on. His is the smile that won ' t come off. And while he pitches, he says not a word.

His belief that " he that tooteth not his own horn doth not have it tooted, " and " it pays to adver- tise, " coupled with his artistic ability, made him a fine athletic advertising manager. In addition to his college course, he is taking a very extensive and intensive campus course, which may be use- ful later. She drives a Hudson.

The improvement that he desires most for Mill- saps is the installation of mirrors and a beauty parlor in the chapel so that he can amuse him- self by combing and plastering his hair and getting a manicure during the exercises.

Imme- diately on entering school he showed his mettle, however, by choosing as his heroes, Fred Lotter- hos and Mack Swearingen. For three whole years " Trip, " under their inspiration, devoted himself to his studies, and consequently his grades are to be envied. However, these heroes of his earlv college day have been eclipsed by the light of love which, we think, has its origin in Belhaven College. The transformation i astound- ing; the quiet, industrious scholar has become doting and frivolous. We have, at present, small hope that the victim will ever be restored to his right mind.

Look, gentle readers and gentlemen readers, on one of the reasons why the Bobashela is: Sambo has literally played his way through school. He plays baseball; he plays the violin; he plays the saxophone, and he ' s even played hands (in a game of cards), and he winds up his playful career by playing business manager of the Bobashela.

Such a demure person to have such ambition ! However, in spite of her zeal for her chosen career, she has still found time to support one corner of the V. W. triangle. And she can talk vociferously about what " a really wonderful place Montreat is " and " I can ' t begin to tell you all the things we did, " which proves that the quietest people talk enthusiastically on their pet subjects. -9 Bohashela 19 2 4 Senior Class Elizabeth Morrison, K A JACKSON ' , MISSISSIPPI Bachelor of Science Y.

Now that he has become one of the " Gal- loways ' " best debaters and has his degree, he can go to " Tomatopolis " and shine, shine, shine.

Millsaps, as we have known her, would be lacking without Chatum with his grin, his dim- ple, his laugh, and his impersonation of a frog.

Jim Hutton has the following general charac- teristics: Love of books and love of peace and quiet. He also is said to be hard-headed, and perhaps he is, to a trifling degree. Because he loves peace he (it is said) hates women. The " Bobashela " reporter questioned the alleged mis- ogynist as to his guilt, and finds that the accused pleads " not guilty.

Indeed he is a true disciple of " Groot. " Joe Hines Howie JACKSON - , MISSISSIPPI Bachelor of Science Joe is of the type that either reposes abso- lutely or is carried away with emotion. The former trait is generally evident, but the latter, if discovered, requires a little research. It seems to me that girls arouse Joe to the emotional pitch just mentioned, and that his frequent yawns are caused by the night before with the same crea- tures. Now let me prophesy as to Joe ' s success. His only chance is this: That some pretty girl marry him and stir up his slumbering ambition. This, with his ability to make friends and with his bright mind, will make success sure. But Joe, we hope this pushing wife doesn ' t henpeck you, even if you do need it. John G. Fitzhugh.

Eyes opened wide with wonder, head bowed in sign of respect, the beholder will ask, " Whence came these, or have they been always thus? " And well may it be questioned, if they are here through the slow working out of organic evolution gradually arriving at the present state of contrast with the lowly, simian creatures who were their Freshmen ancestors ; or, on the other hand, did they greet the light of day full grown and richly endowed, as Minerva sprang in her full glory from the head of Jupiter? September of 1920 came, and with it the group of ambitious youths and maidens who were to make up the now expiring Class of ' 24. An epic might be composed on their deeds; their glories might be celebrated in lyric verse. But the spirit of what they knew and that they accomplished may be expressed by an incident in the life of one young Frosh. On his trip home at the Christmas-tide, this tribute was paid, by his paternal ancestor: " My son, you ' re a good deal wiser now than you ever will be again. " And so were they all — all Freshmen then. Came another year, and another, and the Class of ' 24 kept their feet on the ladder, and their eyes to the goal. They increased in knowledge of themselves and the world, grew in favor, and acquired experience. And as time passed those who, weak of purpose, lagged behind were outstripped, for no seat is reserved for laggards ; in the race those who survived were the brave and the strong, and those who had firm parents to shove them forward to a brilliant finish, and those who were prospered by fortune. As the group strove and struggled against the idleness and the seductive voice of pleasure which opposed their progress, they had an effect upon the age in which they lived. But as they influenced their time, so, too, perhaps, their time may have made some impress upon them. Born in the golden Autumn of 1920, when their country was at the peak of wealth and reckless abandon, none would have desired these infants to grow up in seclusion from the intoxication of the day. Hence, they plunged head- long into life as well as study, disporting themselves with the vigor of innocence in the waves of pleasure and the mountains of toil. They burned the midnight gasoline and oil. The time was short, which it took for some to know a lot. Flappers, well, that ' s what the class has little else but, except a few lads who inclined to the sheik ideal. On the feminine side of the house the Co-eds of ' 24 were swept with an epidemic of the automobile complex. The ravages of tin ' s plague were great and its heavy touch has not yet completely vanished. But if this worthy lb Bobashela 19 2 4 group ever touched a gingerly foot to the path of dalliance, it was that their usefulness might be increased. They have come back to earth, so that they stand now with their feet on the groud, while their souls play in the higher realms of the spirit. But let the past entomb these ghosts of the past, for only the present counts. The Class of ' 24 is ready to declare, with the Little Corporal, " I am my own ancestors, " and is willing to stand and fall on its own merits. All the future lies before them, waiting to be cut like a birthday cake and divided among the forty-six members. They stand now astride the prostrate form of the college curriculum, a valiant foe finally conquered; just at the threshold, though, of a greater and stronger foe — life itself. And they will be heard from again, unless the earth gets behind a tree, and hides. Senior Class Officers Officers H. C. Young President J. M.

No less red than the leaves are the waters which pour From its mouth — and they joyfully seek With gregarious gladness the nearness of more, As they tumble beyond to the creek. Years gone by saw its waters flow down to the sands — Years gone by saw the savage of old Falling down at this spring on his knees and his hands, Putting lips to its surface of gold. Then he tasted and loved it, and tasted again. Drinking deep of its heart, as it sped Up from underground lakes stored by falling of rain, Scorched by sunlight — and so it was red. Then he named it Archusa, because it was sweet, As it fell over rocks greenly mossed, As it hurried and scurried with frolicksome feet, ' Til it merged with the creek and was lost. luthor ' s Note: " Archusa " is an Indian word meaning " sweet water. " This name was given to a sulphur spring situated a mile south of a small Mississippi town, and this poem is a fairly accurate description of Archusa Spring as it is today. 44 Bobashela Officers J.

And thereupon was the color of ' 25 chosen. Not only was green destined to be significant of the Freshmen, but our own particular Professor Dan Patch (who was imported from Florida to help drill trig, into our resisting head) liked the color so well that one morning he appeared a symphony in green. The budding trees formed an appropriate background for " George Munroe ' s " green suit, green tie, pale green shirt, greenish felt hat and green socks and shoes. Boy, bvit he created a stampede — to the front windows to watch the stately approach. And sad to relate, he refused to wear this outfit again, in spite of the extravagant admiration of the Freshmen. This Spring the campus course was especially good, and some of our imprudent Frosh had to be reminded by Dr. Alex that " young ladies and young gentlemen must not sit in automobiles. " Because, you see, " In the Spring a young man ' s fancy lightly turns " — to the young ladies, of course! The feature of the Freshman year was the banquet which we (at the point of being tallied) graciously tendered the Juniors. And the feature of the banquet was the consternation of our would-be dignified president, " Ben " (Turpin) Galloway, when Addison Hall, the magician, nonchalantly pulled a long string of weiners from the former ' s pocket. Among the notables of 1920-21 were Shanks, who looked like Ichabod Crane and was inseparable from his red and white stocking cap; Polly and Madeline, the official flappers; Bill Watkins, owner of the biggest feet in Hinds County; and last, but not least, Ever-ready Mack Watson, so-called because, two weeks after he deserted Crystal Springs to become the star of the Millsaps firmament, he knew the name, address, telephone number, and qualification of every pretty girl in Jackson and was always on the job as a living date directory for the college boys. So our Freshman year ended, and as one " ed " remarked upon leaving the dormitory, suitcase in hand, " Lord, they all say your Freshman year in college is the happiest you ' ll ever spend, but looks like to me we ' ve been the goats all right. But gee, haven ' t we had some fun! Say, bud, be here two days ahead nex ' year and let ' s get the Freshies! " Next year we ex-Freshies were showing off to fine advantage. We met the trains, engineered baffled youngsters to the Insane Asylum, Blind Institute, and such places, for the college, sold them bath tickets, initiated them into Alpha Pi Sigma ; and, in other words, rattled those poor boys until life wasn ' t worth a street car ride. 49 Bobashela 19 2 4 Having lectured us, as usual, on the impropiety of young men and ladies sitting together in cars, on the Major ' s tomb, or on the front steps, somebody took pity and gave us such amusing green benches (amusing because when one leaned back he suddendly turned over), and the Class of ' 25 took possession. Spring holidays! And weren ' t we Sophs wild over the idea of going home for a few days — then Commencement with all its gaieties, exams., and home. " Congratulations, Sophomores! " read letters from Dr. Key, our new president, in the Summer of 1923. " Congratulations for what? " we wondered. " You are now a Junior, " continued the letters, and urged us to come back to school and graduate, so we straggled in, one by one, and chose Stump Young to lead us. Then the football team followed suit by electing him captain. The Junior Class is proud of being the largest in the history of Millsaps, and next year — why, just watch our smoke!

And " 26 " is moving on — with as much history before as behind us — yet we stop a moment to think; and lo, two whole years have gone by — the shortest, happiest years, perhaps, that we have ever spent. Freshman? Can we remember that far back — just last year? Quite vividly- Oh me! Never-to-be-forgotten days — (and nights). Weren ' t we positively uncouth? Sap heads? And wouldn ' t we be different if we could live it all over again? From the pinnacle of the Soph ' s polish and ch arm we can see our faults too well; how blind we were then — mere children leaving our mother ' s apron strings, even packing a grip — and forsaking home, comfort, loved ones, to begin life more or less independently and unprotected midst strangers, who were peculiarly capable of causing us various pains, worry and uncomfortableness. A new system altogether — and adjustments forthwith began for the fresh high school products, whose former names and fames crashed unnoticed about their ears. You remember? Insignificant, weren ' t you? And yet about the most important thing a ' tall. We were a great, grand class — brilliant in our studies, outstanding in good looks (both masculine and feminine), especially beloved by our new professors, and quite cock-sure in everything. We quickly learned all the main points of interest about the college — got everybody else sized up — decided who rated what, and enjoyed ourselves very noticeably. We had a football team — embryonic stars, all — a baseball team — quite a snappy bunch; and even our president, " Chick, " chewed tobacco. Perfect angels we — no flappers — though we all had wings. So quiet and unobtrusive, diligent workers, none lazy. In fact, we lived and moved in an Ideal Freshman World, or do I remember correctly? And thus, by some mysterious way, we find ourselves a few steps higher — a year has passed — to where? We see a motley, uncomely crowd of childish beings in our old place. Are we truly Sophomores? Then snip! Ha, ha! And the Freshman worms are bald. " We will repay, ' ' saith the Class of ' 26. It all seems the same, and yet, just a little different. We make new resolutions, plan and work — we play and loaf; we do our duty and fall down on our job — and slowly we pass on. It all melts into a haze of sports and fun, of parties, exams., joys and sorrows, friends, and days of work. It ' s college; we are ending our second year, and are preparing for what is to be our work in God ' s great world. " 26, " we ' ve broken even — two and two. Shall we make the best of our failures and success in the past? Shall we attain our goal? Yea — verily! Here ' s to the future of ' 26. 5+ Bobashela 19 2 4 3n Mtm xxmn nrar?

" 2. And many hearing, obeyed the words of the king, and came and dwelt in the land of the Majorites. 3. And they found the land Bowing with women and song. 4. And it was especially pleasing in their sight by reason of a mirthful people called the Femmites. 5. Now the Femmites adorned themselves according to the law of custom and painted their faces and cut off their hair as a token of homag e to their lords and masters, the Majorites. 6. Now these sojourners coveted the land of the Majorites, and they said one to another, " Let us possess this land, for it is a goodly land and pleasing in our sight " ; and they banded themselves together and called themselves the Jellybites of Homines Virides. 7. Now this land of the Majorites was ruled by a tribe known thereabouts for their wisdom and knowledge called the tribe Homines Sophomores. 8. And the Homines Sophomores beheld the deeds of the Jellybites, and they were wroth, and they said, " Behold this people, how they overrun the earth and fill it up, and see how they gambol before the Femmites like lambs in the Spring-time. " Chapter Two 1. Then they called in the wise men of the tribe and took counsel, and they did take the Jellybites and did shave their heads and did beat them and did turn them aloose before the Femmites for sport. 2. Then there arose laughter and shouts of derision throughout the place. 3. And word came to the great king how they were served. 4. And he was grived and hid his face and rent his garments and three days he wailed and he said, " My children, my children, I am brought down in shame; my enemies will rejoice and be glad. " 5. Then Jacob, his adviser, of the House of Lin, counseled with him and he took courage and made a decree, saying, " Let none of the Jellybites be troubled ; woe unto him who harms even so much as a hair of their heads. " 6. Still some of the bold ones of the Homines Sophomores vexed the Jellybites with straps, whereupon the wrath of the king fell upon them and they departed from out of the land. 7. And peace reigned. Chapter Three 1. In the fourth month of this year a pestilence called examination visited the land and great was the destruction in the land of the Majorites. 61 Bohashel a 19 2 4 M 2. And the good king did counsel them, saying, " Be of good cheer, for the true workman is not ashamed of his handiwork. " 3. Now the hair of the Jellybites grew and they took to themselves the ways of the inhabitants of the place. 4. Again in the sixth month, and also in the ninth month of the year, the plague swept down on the people, and they were sorely pushed; and many were laid low by it. 5. Now, at the end of that year, those that escaped from out the land of the pestilence were exceedingly glad, and they became puffed up; and they said, one to another, " We that escaped, escaped because there was great wisdom in us. " Wherefore they were ready to become members of the tribe Sophomores. 6. And the king admonished them to fill their storehouses in the year of greenness and plenty against the lean years which were in store for them. sit ' - i ' H 1 •• I W 4 6z Bobashela : W MM 19 2 4 CO-EDS 63 Bobashela 19 2 4 Co-eds Mavbell Alford Miriam Allen- Marie Barber Susie M.

The best that can be said, is that he had an even start, as he had nothing. Material and equipment were short, and the prestige of the Majors was nil. He smiled and " waded into his task, " and he achieved things, as is attested by his popularity in Jackson and throughout the state. He is a hard worker and knows, to use a slang phrase, " his stuff " and " struts it. " Dr. B. E. " Broncho " Mitchell, Faculty Chairman of Athletics When Dr. Key was promoted, " Broncho " was selected to fill his place as faculty chairman of athletics. That he made good is attested by the fact that the football season did not close with a financial deficit. COACH I. H. Hollixgsworth, Assistant Director of Athletics Coach Ike took charge of the varsity line and made a stone wall of it. Although it was his first year, his ever-ready encouragement and his magnetic personality won the admiration and respect of, not only the Majors, but the entire student body as well. 70 " " --gV- XWl Bobashela 19 2 4 foot- m. Football Review, 1923 From the ranks of the novices to a place among the teams that are dangerous competitors, is the progress of the Majors in intercollegiate football in the four years since their initial venture on the gridiron in 1920. Teams of 1920 and 1921 fared badly at the hands of their opponents, but in 1922 those who expected a walk-away victory over the Majors found one of the hardest fighting teams they encountered. In 1923 the team that represented Millsaps won signal recognition during the season, because of its fighting qualities and rugged defense. Viewed in the light of victories won, the team apparently was weaker than the preceding year. This, however, is far from the truth. Critics said that it was a strong team — the strongest Millsaps had ever had — but a " jinx " was ever pursuing the valiant eleven of the past year. Injuries to several members of the squad kept important men out of the line-up in nearly every game, and naturally the team was weakened. Two outstanding features of the season should be noted. The Majors scored on A. M. by the use of straight football, though the Aggies beat them into submission bv use of a number of substitutes. The other outstanding feature of the season was the Thanksgiving tie with the Mississippi College eleven. It was the result of this game that raised the Majors to the ranks of elevens that are in the " fight " and worthy foes. The Choctaws had failed only once before in the season to score, and in that they got a draw with a team of much higher calibre. Glancing back over the four past years and noting the progress, gives ample grounds for the prediction that the Majors of the coming years will rank with the best in the Southland. To Coach H. F. Zimoski goes the credit for the wonderful showing, and with him to direct the strategy of the Majors, it seems but plausible to look for greater things. The results in the nine games of 1923 are as follows: Clarke Memorial o; Millsaps o A. M. College 28 ; Millsaps 6 Mississippi Normal o; Millsaps 31 Birmingham-Southern 7; Millsaps 6 Louisiana Tech 20; Millsaps o Howard 14; Millsaps 6 Hendrix College 25; Millsaps o Spring Hill 6; Millsaps 7 Mississippi College o; Millsaps o Bobashela Football Jimmie Campbell, Captain and End As captain of the Major eleven in 1923, Jimmie displayed ability as a leader, and as a player he was in a class by himself. In losing him, the Majors are losing the services of a valuable man. His ability as a player and his unfailing courage won for him a host of friends and admirers. He played for four years and was in every game during his time in college. Dudley D. " Dud " Cllley, Center " Dud " is one of those kind of fellows who put their whole soul in the task at hand, and most any of those who played opposite him during 1923 will testify to the truth of the statement. He served faithfully and never failed to give his best. " Dud " is another Major who is being placed on the retired list, having served four years. T. M. " Day " Davenport, Tackle " Dav " won ' t go down in history as a brilliant lineman, but he never failed to give his best. His three seasons have been marked by faithful- ness and steadiness. He was always ready to do his bit and never flinched. 72 Bohashela 19 2 4 n Football J. W. " Stump " Young, Halfback " Stump " has the honor of leading the Majors in 1924, and if he plays as hard as a captain as he did for other captains, he is going to be chosen for All-State honors.. He says he is going to captain the best team in Mississippi in 1924, which means he believes the Majors will cop the state title. If he is given the support that he has always given other captains, his prediction will not be short of right. N. C. " Slim " Young, Halfback To look at " Slim, " one would never pick him, as a line plunger, but his ability to worm his way through a line is almost uncanny. " Slim ' ' improves each year, and 1924 should be his best. He was never known to quit, and when he tackles a man the man is sure to hit the ground. James " Red ' ' Plummer, Guard Ability to stick in the face of obstacles won " Red " a regular berth on the varsity. He had all kinds of discouragement during his first year, but stuck to training. He has developed into one of the outstanding guards in the state, being mentioned for All-State honors. Smashing the offense is his specialty. 73 19 2 4 JJ Football V. E. " Granma " Chalfant, Halfback When Coach wanted a man to go in and make a gain, he was certain to send " Granma " to the front, and " Granma " always delivered. He is a fighting parson, and the " devil " is certainly going to have some scrap when " Granma " goes into action, if his work on the football field may be taken as a criterion. W. A. " Cyrus " Bealle, Fullback Defensively, " Cyrus " is a terror. He goes intc a play with every ounce of himself, and when he hits a man something is going to fall. " Cyrus ' played the season through under conditions thai would have caused a man made of other thai sterling qualities to quit. Chester A. " Chick " Nelson, Halfback " Chick " was the only Major to be chosen for All-State honors. The jinx got " Chick " before the season opened, but he stuck and gave every- thing he had when called on. He is a threat man of rare quality and has all the qualities necessary to make a star. 74 " 2 V ; | Bobasheh 19 2 4 Football Harold " Pole " Webb, Tackle " Pole ' s " strength and fighting heart made him feared by his every opponent. He is a man who smears every play that comes in his direction, and never failed to open a hole when called on. Webb is destined .to do great things for Millsaps on the gridiron. Hugh " Coot " Williford, Fullback " Coot " played his first year as a Major in 1923, but under fire he displayed the qualities of a natural football player. His line smashes tore opposing lines to fragments, and on the defense he was a demon. He is a tackier that hits with the power of a catapult. Charles F. " Bigun " Henley, Guard Ordinary words would fail to adequately portray the ability of " Bigun " to stem the tide. One has but to glance at the accompanying picture to know that he has the power necessary to smash through either offensively or defensively. He was one of the mainstays in the line of the Majors. 75 ja Bohashel a 19 2 4 m Football Shelton " Little Top " Reeves End When it came to smashing interference or going down under a punt, " Little Top " was always in the swim. He also knew how to snag a pass out of the air and to dive low and hard. He is one of the strong bets for the 1924. varsity. J. E. " Bax " Baxter Tackle and Guard " Zimmie " used Baxter as his relief man during the past season, sending him to both tackle and guard. To be sent in was " Bax ' s " real joy, and he always filled the bill. He is going to make going tough for someone in the next two years. Randolph " Kirk " Kirkpatrick Tackle and Guard Just a Freshman, but " Kirk " made his presence known, and demonstrated ability that kept him from being a continual bench-warmer. With the past year ' s experience, " Kirk " will certainly make things hum in 1924. The varsity line will agree that he is " some man. " Theodore E. " Ted " Motlow Guard and Half Ability to hang a toe under the oval and send it soaring into enemy territory made " Ted " one of the most valuable men on the varsity. He started the year at guard, but his punting took him to the backfield, where, as a half, he made good. 7 fi U Bobashela Football Clyde " At " Atkins End Sent in as a sub in the La Tech game, " At " made good in a walk, and was in practically every game thereafter. He is like a flash on get- ting down the field, and doesn ' t hesitate to leave his feet to get his man. J. R. " Jobie " Harris Halfback " Jobie " was another Major that won recogni- tion in the La. Tech game. He was in every play, and showed ability. He is going to make a valuable man in 192+. ' He lacked only expe- rience to win a regular berth this past season. Robert J. Ham End Ham demonstrated unusual ability, and when called on, put everything he had into the game. T. Bascomb " Bo " Holloman Quarterback " Bo " is undoubtedly the smallest intercollegiate quarter in the state, but what he lacked in size he made up in ability. He is a threat man — punts, passes and runs. His work in the Choctaw- Major game will long be remembered. 77 Bobashela 19 2 4 " tN_ Basketball in 1923 Compared with the preceding season, the 1923 campaign of the Majors was indeed a brilliant one. The team won eight of the sixteen games played, including the loss to Furman in the S. I. A. A. tournament. The outstanding feature of the season was the capture of the annual Choctaw- Major series of four games, the Purple and White gaining a decision in three. The previous year the Majors won only one in six games. As was the case with the football team, Coach H. F. Zimoslci had instilled the spirit of " fight to the last " in the basketball machine, and they never knew when they were licked. They were known as a team that always fought uphill. It was this ability to fight back that carried them to victories over seemingly stronger teams. The season ' s record in games is : Clarke 16 Y. M. C.

The Freshman basketball team of 1924 showed much promise early in the season, but owing to the fact that the season was not yet closed when the Annual copy must be mailed, no results of games can be given. Scribes in future years will write of the feats accomplished by the Junior Majors of 1924. The personnel of the Freshman squad for 1924 is as follows: Coach, Ike Hollings- worth; forwards, Blackwell, Byrd and Stevens ; centers, Vance and Williams; guards, Brooks, Church and Henley. 80 Hf 3o i W Booashel a 1 9 Girls ' Basketball Co-ed athletic activities at Millsaps were not encouraged by the faculty, but the Co-eds of 1922-23 went forward with their plans to begin intercollegiate competition in basketball. The results of the season were not encouraging, so far as victories on the court were concerned, but the interest of the faculty was aroused. The net result was that Miss Sarah Dickinson, a graduate of Alabama Woman ' s College, was secured as physical director for the Co-eds and as coach of the Co-ed Major Sextette. Under Miss Dickinson ' s tutelage the Co-ed Majors have shown a marked improve- ment, and when the recapitulation of the 1924 season is made, it will show the girls have begun to taste the joys of victory. The 1924 squad is composed of the following: Miss Sarah Dickinson, coach; Elise McCallam (captain) and Irene Simpson, forwards; Emmie Lowe and Monteal Watson, guards; Cynthia Thompson and Magnolia Simpson, centers; substitutes, Pat Eikins, Evalina Allen and Bernice Miller. JE Bobashela 19 2 4 Baseball in 1923 If one is inclined to believe in spirits, fortune telling and such things, he will no doubt believe that the Majors of 1923 were beset by a " jinx " throughout the baseball season, as not one game did the Majors win. The " jinx " is not offered as an alibi, but even the worst team wins occasionally; but the Majors did not win a game. Many games were apparently won, but always something happened, and the Major machine crumpled like tissue paper. Each man gave his best. We are proud to have a team that is " game " in defeat. Prospects are brighter for 1924, and in the future there is not likely to be a repetition of a winless season. More and better material is in sight, and the Majors should see better days. In fact, some are expecting them to be of championship calibre within the next two or three years. 82 v?sr«J ss - Bobashela zLc w mm 19 2 4 n CUULET " PITCHER APPLEWHITE NELSON " BROOKS COMbS PlTCHE I VARSITY BASEBALL TEAM 83 Bobashela 19 2 4 Track, 1923 Track and field events for the Majors in 1923 were few, but it was in track that they showed the greatest efficiency, winning the dual meet from the Choc- taws, 25 to 20. N. C. Young, who led the sprinters and vaulters, took in- dividual honors of the meet, with three first places to his credit. Willie Poole crowded m with two first places to his credit. " Atkins, Burks, High- tower and Bailey deserve special mention. The annual meet with Mis- sissippi College has been won by the Majors both years that it has been held. Young has been re-elected as captain, and early this year pre- icted the third straight win for the Majors over the Choctaws in the dual meet. 4 m ft 84 Tennis Wielders of the racquet at Millsaps have been making a creditable showing in the past few years. In the Spring of 1923 the Majors ' doubles team, composed of " Fish " Donald and E. M. Chatoney, went into the finals in the state tournament held at A. and M. and extended the A. and M. team to take the title. In singles, " Fish " defeated his opponent in the semi-finals. The final had to be postponed on account of lack of time, and several things interfered to keep " Fish " and the Ole Miss representative from meeting to play off the title round. Mississippi College was defeated in both the singles and the doubles matches between the Majors and the Choctaws. Hunt and Chatoney are the standard-bearers for the present year. They defeated the Choctaw team with ease in the Fall matches. 85 Bobashel a 19 2 4 Sonnet By Rufus Terrai. Lord, let my tongue no word unthinking speak Whose sound would any wish of Thine defile; Or bring a blush to any modest cheek, Or cause young laughing lips to cease to smile; And may the words I say be not more pure Than thoughts which rise within my secret heart. Let embryonic evil not endure ; Lord, set me back to make a fairer start. May words of mine and deed:; of mine, great God, He worthy of Thine earthly son and heir; May this dim path whereon ray feet have trod Lead to Thy city beautiful and fair. Lord, keep me safe until that moment when Mv call comes clear. In Jesus ' name. Amen. The King s Highway By Rufus Terrai, A long, straight road winds on and on, until the coming night Bedims the ending of the trail, and hides it from the sight. A bitter road, King Albert, and to travel all its length You needed help, and found in God the power to give you strength. A road of thorns, defeat, and death, yet at its end you found The honor, praise, and glory that in worthy deeds abound ; Reward for faithful service, for the trust you ' d not betray. Hail, Albert, worthy traveler, upon the King ' s Highway! And though my birth be humble, though my destiny obscure, I ' d keep my heart untarnished, keep m honor ever pure. Would have my true convictions stronger than my fear of blame, That I may think or do no deed would make mv soul feel shame. Like Albert, 1 would tread the path of Honor and of Right, Which now before me rolls apace into the shadowed night; Lord, hear Thy loving servant in this earnest prayer, I pray; Make me a worthy traveler, too, upon the King ' s Highwaj ! 86 T ' STWT ' TTraiTWff? kgattizatiog BOOK IV ■■■■MMMMHMMNMMMMBMMBMMM y BobasJiela 19 2 4 jg Kappa Alpha Founded at Washington and I.ee University in 1865 Colors: Crimson and Gold Flokve.rs: Magnolia and Red Rose Publication: " Kappa Alpha Journal " Alpha Mu Chapter Milton C.

A dainty deer comes down to drink; She sees herself reflected there, And quivers, frightened, on the brink, At grace so fair. A snowy lily bends and sways Above the pool ; the sky, dark blue — The dying sun ' s last brilliant rays Reflected, too. The silent song of night sounds clear; The words come faint across the dew The pool is you, my dear, my dear — The pool is you. Sonnet Darkness breeds Light. The water lily ' s head Holds high above the stagnant, slimy waste Of some forsaken, marsh-like river bed. But there the sun ' s hot vivid rays have chased The shapes of dark; have all unfair erased, And with their glow the place have worthy made Of such a flower which this dull spot has graced. So sweet it blooms! So trusting, unafraid, With child-like faith that may not be gainsaid. Yet it will crumple — die, and be forgot, For Beauty never overlong has stayed. Such, then, must be the final, fated lot Of all of those who bear the bitter blight Of being sons of Darkness, born to Light. Phollies of a Philosopher Under SUMMER ' S sky, on a warm McKNIGHT, When the winds blew sweet and the moon shone WHITE, By a HATHORNE hush at the garden wall, Where the pale ZIMOSKIs grow thick and tall, And the lilacs LIN to the dew-wet air, Fragrant smells of gangrene garlic rare. Where the RED chrysanthemums BOWEN tune To the lilting lute of the moving moon; Where the wind does blow and the SANDERS fly, And the wild waves wail on the coast nearby ; When the small dark hands of my HAMILTON Pointed straight to the second of ten till one, Then I kissed your lips, and you stole the KEY Of my heart, sweet maiden, away from me! 128 Bobashela 19 2 4 $T?e T)-va.»i. i«= " tit.a ' Y ox ie- " di- Vtie Panama a-pd «, r n it Yhejr " Rat " Rx e. 129 m Bobashela 19 2 4 a 1 e se »ti-ot " 3©VoX t G3Vo V.t a. ot% vj Cotton £Vcls ibati- Vb e, w ' i $i%4 te niTy mo Ve i o «.c1b »l Vv e yoxcf TX I . e-uYl ©vie- wer Vv- " Lvt«,a-D avyVbo itf ©t VPe- cat . t3 ca.-pVok-cecft me Tcvt oTa — 130 Bobashela 19 2 4 W fTx jg " Wky Daphne " A PLAY IN ONE ACT By Bethany Swearingen PERSONS IN THE PLAY Mr. Luffborough (Fairfax), 45. Mrs. Luffborough (Felicia), 40. Daphne: Sixteen-year-old daughter. Young men guests. Scene: The drawing room of a stately old house — very conventional appearance. Time: 1923. (Curtain rises with Mrs. Luffborough, in dinner gown, seated on a handsome davenport. Mr. Luffborough enters, walks around room, and then seats himself facing Mrs. Luffborough). Felicia: " Well, Fairfax, I believe we have every reason to be proud of Daphne. She has today arrived at the critical age of sixteen and, so far as I know, her life has been perfectly normal and proper. I am beginning to realize, however, that the time has come for us to provide for her the sort of social life she should now expect. Really, we will have to live our youth over again with Daphne, and I can ' t imagine anything more fascinating — if the boys nowadavs have ieven a slight semblance to those of the Golden Age. Strange to say, I hardly know a bov in Daphne ' s class at school, and she never mentions one in any but the most impersonal manner. " Fairfax: " I am gratified, of course, Felicia, at the successful close of Daphne ' s childhood and not in the least surprised. From year to year I have noticed a growing likeness to her mother — so what more, dear, could I desire? " Felicia: " Oh, Fairfax, you are certainly the little sunbeam in our home. Every time my self-respect or vanity is somewhat depleted you come along and replenish the supplv as onlv my model husband can. As for Daphne, I am glad she has your temperament, seasoned in a way with my common sense. We will see her in action tonight. Here she comes dressed for the party — the first one with boys! " Fairfax: " Doesn ' t she look lovely? Her mother all over again! And, if I remember correctly, the existence and presence of a mere man or men will in no way phase her. " (Enter, Daphne, pretty, bobbed-haired girl with a patrician appearance, wearing a simple dancing frock and headdress). Daphne (with animation): " Behold this Vision of girlish loveliness! My Renee model is positively soul-stirring, don ' t you think, Dad ? Or does your little girl look so grown up that you have changed your attitude at the age of forty? " Fairfax: " If you won ' t do, I am a what, Daph ? " Daphne: " A miserably poor judge among other things, I ' ll assure you. Mother, it is splendid of you and Dad to celebrate this great occasion, and especially considerate of you to allow me to manage the list of invitations. I want you both to meet and talk to everybody. In fact, you will have to do most of the entertaining. I believe Poole is about to announce some guests now. " Daphne (with great excitement greets several young boys): " Fred, Jack, Archie, all — greetings and joyous welcome! " Jack: " Such formality ! " Fred: " And solemnity! " Archie: " And frigidity! " (All bowing in worshipful manner: " Great Allah be praised. " Mr. and Mrs. Luffborough look rather puzzled at the greeting). Jack (with great dignity): " ' Tis quite becoming in one of thy years, daughter. " Archie: " Sixteen in number, I believe. " Fred: " Sixty in appearance, however! " Daphne: " That ' s too deep for me. Come on over, boys, and meet fond parents. Maybe they will understand. Impress ' em if you can. Two suggestions I present to you all: Don ' t ja Bobashela 19 2 4 let ignorance keep you from conversing freely, and talk long and fluently about me — a fascinating subject of interest to you all. " (Coming over to Iter parents): " Mother, Dad, let me present Messrs. Fred Livingston, Jack Sherrald, Archie Featherston, Wilmington Cox, and Archie Dupree. You used to know them, but perhaps you don ' t recognize them since they have grown to such manly splendor. " Felicia: " I ' m delighted to see you children again, and want you all to be friends of Daphne. Jack: " You ' re sorter putting that mild, aren ' t you, Mrs. Luffborough. We take turn about being in love with her. " Archie (with feeling): " Only we don ' t take turns — we usually fall in groups. I know, being in group II. " Fairfax (with amusement): " Take heart, boys. Such persons can be won, but not in groups. " Fred: " And, then, I figure that it ' s better to have loved and lost, because you enjoy it so much when you do win. " (General laughter among the boys and Daphne). Daphne: " I guess that ' s another way of saying that you and Ophelia are making progress? " Jack: " Can you think of a word that carries with it a little, etc., a little more speed than progress? Fred ' s no lame brain when it comes to getting ' em told. " Daphne (wickedly): " Yes, where to step off! " Fred: " Never mind, Miss Daphne. " (Mrs. Luffborougli looks quizically at her husband. He seems amused. Numerous other young men enter, are greeted, and introduced. They are all seated around Daphne and Mrs. Luffborough, giving the impression of a room crowed with boys). Charles (one of the boys who has just entered): " Mrs. Luffborough, I want to ask you to do me a favor ' fore I forget it. I want you to let Daph drive a Marmon coach as our entry in the automobile show. " Felicia: " Why, Charles, that is a lovely compliment, but Daphne doesn ' t drive at all. " All the Boys: " Why, Mrs. Luffborough! " Fred: " She ' s the best in town among the girls. She ' s more accustomed to a Cadillac. " Charles: " But she ' s been shoving a Marmon around for the last six weeks. " Jack: " And time was when she didn ' t scorn a Ford. She really learned on my Henry I. " Felicia (with surprise): " Why, Daphne! " Daphne: " Yes, Mother, I ' m a witness to the truth of that statement. " Archie: " Mrs. Luffborough, this is what I want to know: What do you think of a girl who hasn ' t any more tact than to beat a fellow at his own game? " Felicia: " Well, Archie, what ' s the game? " Archie: " Billiards. " Felicia: " Horrors! I wouldn ' t call it lack of tact, but lack of discretion and lady-likeness. But why, pray, are you asking such an irrelevant question? " (One boy faints away into another ' s arms). Archie: " I was unconscious of asking that kind of a question, but I can tell you who the girl was, and maybe that will illuminate the subject. None other than Daphne Felicia Luffborough. " Felicia (with amazement): " Why, Daphne! " Daphne: " Yes, Mother, that ' s true, too. " Felicia: " Well, where did you learn? " Daphne: " Archie Featherston needn ' t take that as personal. All last month I went to the club with Dad when he played golf and most of these assembled guests would be there waiting f or their respective forbears. Naturally, we got into a friendly game of billiards and, naturally, my game was soon an evidence of a misspent youth. Now, just because I won three chocolate sundaes off of Archie yesterday afternoon, he ' s trying to get a law passed forbidding children under eighteen playing without consent of their mammas. " Fairfax (wisely): " He reaped what he sowed for corrupting the youth of the city. " Julian (abruptly changing the subject to avoid a family row): " I ' ve just come from one and don ' t believe I could survive another. I suggest Daph and I do the feature dance we learned this afternoon. " Felicia (in utter dismay) " Dance? Why, Daphne? " Daphne (calmly): " Yes, Mother, I do that, too; and what ' s more, I ' ve taught every hoy in this room to do the same at twenty-five cents a lesson in the school gym to make my club dues. That scandalous proceeding has been going on for one year and six months, omitting the Summer vacation. I want you to see how professional we ' ve become in so short a time. You really can ' t help admiring us, even if you do disapprove. George, play ' Markeeta ' and Jules and I will do 132 Bohashela 19 2 4 that Spanish tango. Walter, did Night Hawks bring your instruments? " Waiter: " Yes, we ' ll get ' em. " (Briny in saxophones, horns, drums, etc.) Wilmington: " Mrs. Luffborough, we ' ve got the outplayingest jazz orchestra of any prep school in the state. Daph ' s dancing class and the orchestra are giving an extravaganza called ' The Soap Box Revue ' next week. Daph has a superb interpretation of a modern Salome, which she wrote herself. " Daphne: " And if you don ' t hush, young man, you will be the headless hero. " (Another boy faints away). Felicia (with real concern): " Why, Daphne! " Daphne: " That ' s the truth, if it ever was spoken. And our show is a technical knockout — not another one like it in existence! " Jack: " I should say not! And this one won ' t exist long if I ' m any judge of how much the theatre-going public will stand. Sunday Schools won ' t be taking it over for exclusive use, either. " Fred: " On with the dance! I ' ll blow the whistle occasionally as a gentle reminder that we are in a private home and not the dear old gym. I ' ll call the ' figgers, ' too — right cheek, left cheek, kick, kiss! " Daphne: " Aw, Fred, your mind ' s in the gutter. You ' re thinking about the little dance created last week that was immediately tabooed. " Fred: " Well, it ' s on the curb now, alright, alright. " (Julian and Jack dance beautifully together). Jack: " Mrs. Luffborough, you and Mr. Luffborough ought to give us a sample of the way you danced when you never missed one in ten miles around here. " Felicia: " Why, Jack! " Daphne: " Yes, Mother, that is true, too. Dad told me once that you got the blue ribbon for dancing — and your diary wouldn ' t lead me to believe you didn ' t understand the youthful thrill of moving about to music. " Fairfax: " They have you there, Felicia. Suppose I waltz you around again? Fine! Boys, play ' Beautiful Blue Danube ' . " (They waltz very gracefully together). Julian: " Daph, I see where you get your grace. Your next dance is with me, please, Mrs. Luffborouugh. " Felicia: " You are indeed gallant, and I always will love gallantry. Suppose we try a new step? I seem to be terribly out of step with ray daughter. But Daphne, where are the girls? I have been so absorbed that I didn ' t notice that they had not come down. " Daphne: " Well, I ' ll tell you Mother. I took you literally about this being a ' boy party ' and invited only boys. For once in my life I wanted to be sure of not merely a rush, but an onslaught. I wanted to start off right. " Fred: " Start, Daphne? " Jack: " And with a brilliant start, maybe, maybe she ' d be willing to end with none other than (all simultaneously) Mel " (Quick curtain). % 19 2 4 a mmmim = r Bohashela dr nf ' 9 ' READ DUR RD5 i3S Wl. .

Tdfe Insurance is one of the best, one of the most desirable, and one of the most satisfactory as a perma- nent calling. In assets and volume of business, life in- surance is one of the three leading busi- nesses of this country, yet the field is com- paratively underdeveloped. Only 7 per cent of the economic value of human life in the United States is covered by insurance. This gives an idea of the big field still to be worked. As to remuneration, reports of college graduates who have entered business indi- cate that life insurance is at the very top as a source of income. Now is the time for you to consider what you are going to do. If you are ambitious and willing to work hard and are interested to know about life insurance, address THE LAMAR LIFE INSURANCE CO.
