An Appr nattnn „ : ' i ■ E write some things with the feeling that to do our best ■ I ■ will be doing only a duty; other things are written be- - - cause we are expressing the things we want to say. Then it is that we get the pleasurable thrill of doing the thing nearest to our desire. In writing these words, the lattei is true. No man can inspire noble feelings and thoughts in others unless there is within him an innate fineness which is expressed in his every action and contact. There is in Millsaps College a man who is no respecter of persons, save by an impartial justice to all. He is a teacher who exemplifies his teaching by his life. His words are forever stamped in our hearts. Daily association with him in Lecture Halls causes us to realize that his Philosophy of Life is more than a mere mouthing of phrases; and we can say in truth that " He is a man, take him for all and all. " To this man, Professor J. Reese Lin, these words are ins cribed with deep gratitude and appreciation. tM L " Faithjully faithful to rvery Inisl, Honestly liorust in r-vrry drcd, Rii liloiusly ii iti-oiis aiui justly just — This is thf zuholf of this man ' s creid.

The preparation of this Year Book has been long and diligent. No greater compensation can be imagined than that our efforts may in some manner be worthy of the Institution whose spirit we have sought herein to represent. Last year it was the Editor ' s idea to establish certain ideals which could be used permanently; such as, original Book Inserts; a yearly selec- tion of a representative boy and girl to be called Master Major and K s ' J Representative Co-ed; original and different backgrounds for each group of pictures; a real Feature Section; and, of course, individual pictures of every student. These ideals have been faithfully continued with a few innovations relative 10 the treatment of Book Inserts and an addi- tion to the Feature Book. The Book Inserts are subjects which in actuality represent the Books they introduce. In the Feature Section there are pub- lished two short plays, poems, and articles written by students in College. This was done to encourage amateur writers among the students. I wish to express appreciation for the work done by each member of the Staff, without whose help the task would have been too great. To some not on the Staff I am particularly indebted. To Charles Cecil Combs, whose seasoned exper ' ence, unfailing assistance, and skillful guidance have been invaluable in the preparation of this Annual, I am sincerely grateful. For designing and drawing four excellent and original cartoons which have added much to the decoration of the Class Section I am espe- cially grateful to Franklin ' aughan. Taking everything into consideration all in all the building of this volume has been a pleasant task and, in future years when harsh realities loom as clouds, it is hoped that these pages will awaken gladdened mem- ories of " Those College Days " and furnish a wealth of contentment to you.

SIErlSriOT Paye fifty-nine THE 1927 BOBASHELA OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE Sometning of tne Name and History VERY student of Millsaps probably knows that the word, " Bobashela " is of Indian origin and that it means " Good Friends. " The exact derivation and nationality of the word seems to be clouded in mystery. Several tribes use it and different people attribute it to different nations. Most people agree that it is either a Choc- taw or a Chickasaw word and it is well-known that both tribes use it. The Liter- ary Editor, who is an amateur student and pseudo authority on both tribes, stoutly maintains that it is Choctaw. Another student of Indians in Mis5issippi claims that it is Chickasaw. A former Professor of Millsaps agrees that it is " either Choctaw or Chickasaw. " An Editor-in-Chief of a recent issue points out that the word is mentioned in one of the first editions as of Choctaw origin. The present Editor is of the opinion that the weight of evidence is in favor of Choctaw. The first Bobashela was published in 1905 by the Literary Societies. Just when it was taken over by the Senior C ass remains for some future Editor-in-Chief to find out. One of the hard things to do is to find out something of the background of the Annual. As far as can be ascertained there is no complete file of the Bobashela. After a prolonged search twenty- issues were located. Seemingly there were no issues in either 1915 or 1918, though the account of " why not " or even " if " differs in the telling by various members who were of the respective grad- uating classes of the two years. It is extremely unfortunate that there is no complete file on the Campus. The fact that copies of the Bobashela can NOT be kept in the Library i-. proof that thev are desirable, although the reason for the disappearance of the copies is deplorable . Some friend of the College, alumnus, or even student wou ' d do a worthwhile thing by col- lecting a complete file and placing it in the Library — properly chained down. Personally, we have found no task more pleasant than the necessarily hurried glancing through old copies and we feel that a complete file woubl be interesting to students past, present and to come. It is certain that such a file would be of great help to future Editors. 1905 — Vol. 1906 — Vol. 1907 — Vol. 1908 — Vol. 1909 — Vol. 1910 — Vol. 191 1 — Vol. 191 2 — Vol. 1 91 3 — Vol. 1 914 — Vol. 1915— ■ 191 6 — Vol. 1 91 7 — Vol. 1918- . 1919 — Vol. 1920 — Vol. 1 921 — Vol. 1922 — Vol. 1923 — Vol. 1924 — -Vol. 1925 — Vol. 1926— Vol. 1927 — Vol. Editors-ix-Chief I Albert Powe Hand Shubuta, Miss. 2 Luther Emmett Price Carpenter, Miss. 3 Arthur Leon Rogers New Albany, Miss. 4 John Cude Rousseaux Logtown, Miss. 5 Thomas Lowrey Bailey Mathiston, Miss. 6 Edward Cage Brewer Black Hawk, Miss. 7 James Shoffner Savage Ruleville, Miss. 8 James Wesley Broom Daisy, Miss. 9 Frank Tomkeys Scott Jackson, Miss. 10 John Buford Cain Dead Lake, Miss.

Indi- vidual fair play and self control are the ideals to be instilled into every student as well as each player on the teams. Although the Major teams did not win a large percentage of the games this past season, the spirit of the Student Body was not drowned by disappointment. The Athletic Association is growing in importance every year, but it has not yet, as an organi- zation reached the ultimate value in service to the College and Student Body which it might, and for which many students have hoped. A good discussion of the possibilities of athletic developments at Millsaps was given in the 1926 Bobashela, and it is hoped that not many years will elapse before Millsaps will have the benefit of a corps of physical directors, an adequate gymnasium, and a healthv competition in wrestling, boxing, fencing, swinuniiig and track ; so that it could then be said in all truth that MILLSAPS MAKES MEN. Paffe eighty-three THE 1927 BOBASHELA OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE Helen Newell Vice-President LlVN ' lE LiN ' GLE President Daisy Nevvman " Secretary- Treasurer Trie Co-ed Athletic Association Sinre the ()rt;nnizatii)n of the Co-ed Athletic As oi-i;itioii in 1922, there has been a steady and gradual j rowth in athletic activities among the girls of the Millsaps student body. Each ear a larger number of girls have been reached and with the interest taken by the College in providing a coach — Miss Dickerson in 1923-24 and Mrs. Barbour in 1924-25 — Co-ed athletics has come to be a vital part of the extra curricula phase of College Life. In 1925-26 Professor J. E. Stephens, who had so successfully coached the Grenada College teams, came to Millsaps and started coaching the Majorettes. A wonderful work was accomplished in training and developing a baTiner basket- ball team. As a result the Majorettes were claimants of the 1926 Championsliip of the State, winning all but one game. For the past few years, as has been seen, the only activity has been basketball. Since Millsaps is growing fast, especially in co-education, it will not be long before the girls will have other activities. A very progressive step would be the addition of other competitive sports such as vollev ball, tennis and indoor baseball. For, at present, only a small percentage of the girls actually participate in athletics and receive the physical benefits from such participation. During the past year a beginning was made toward a greater interest and larger participation in athletics for the girls by the inter-sorority and inter-dormitory basketball games which were enjoyable and beneficial. More interest would be augmented if some provision were made by the athletic associations for girls ' tennis and volley ball. There are man of the C i-eds who would heartily welcome tennis courts of their own. Indoor baseball is another game which would be of much interest and benefit to the girls. It could be played throughout the year. The Co-eds deserve credit not only for what they have done for themselves; and parentheti- cally, " for themselves " is literally and actually true, for all that has been done toward providing physical training facilities for the girls they have done with no outside assistance and very little encouragement; but also for the splendid manner in which they support the Majors in all phases of athletic activity. Pane eiijhly-jiiui THE 1927 BOBASHELA OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE Revie v of the 1926-27 Foottall Season When the final curtain wps rung down upon the MiUsai)s Football Season at the end of the clash with Howard College of Birmingham on Thanksgiving Day, the Majors completed a year of gridiron history which was quite satisfactory to the students, although the team did not maintain the high position held by the 1925 squad in the S. I. A. A. With the gloomiest prospects possible at the beginning of the 1926 season, Coach Zimoski took a wealth of light, inexperienced material and attempted to do the improbable by creating a football machine that would compare favorably with the heavier, older squad of the year before. Not more than four men of any considerable experience had returned to school and it was around these men that the Coach hoped to build a football machine. Weight was lacking — the average for the entire squad was about 160 pounds. Such conditions do not usually make for a successful season. Yet, in the very first game of the season the Majors worked their surprise on the football fans of this section of the country. Against the University of Alabama, thrice Champions of the South, and once Champions of the Nation, the Major team managed to score eight first downs while their greatly superior opponents were scoring ten. Although the Majors were overwhelmed by a 53 to score, such a comparatively brilliant showing against tlie ' liampions .gave great hopes to the Major backers for a season which would belie the pro. ' pect.s. Tlie crack of the machine which reached its climax in the Mississippi College tilt came as moic c.r a shock since it follow. d the Alabama game. In the second clash of the ycnv with the Union University team from Jackson, Tennessee, the Purple showed great driving power ami inanamd to outplay their opponents decisively only to lose by a 20 to 19 score. Against Louisiana Southwestern tlie Majors prubaljly made their best showing of the year by handily defeating the much heavier eleven ijy a 12 to score. On the following week-end the Majors lost to the powerful Mississippi A. M. team by a disheartening 34 to defeat. It was this game which gave the first indication of the crushing blow that followed during the Fair week. With a huge crowd of loyal Major supporters looking on, and with a multitude of Choctaws iiiini the reservation over at Clinton making themselves very much in evidence, the Purple fought I lie Indian squad to a standstill in the first half of the contest only to be overrun by superior strength in the last half of the match. The result of the massacre was 43 to 13. Selah! The deinon jinx that has a habit of pursuing inexperienced squads camped on the Majors ' trail and the entire remainder of the season, save for the brilliant flash in the Louisiana College game, was a succession of defeat after defeat all featured Ijy hard luck. Against Louisiana Polytech the Majors fumbled disastrously and the Tech squad capitalized their advantage to win 13 to 7. It was ,the following game against Louisiana .College that the Purple Wave gave some evidence of their early season form. The Majors romped easily over the Louisiana opponents by the score of 35 to 7. In the following game, with Crawford out of the lineup, the Millsaps morale completely cracked and Birmingham-Southern achieved a 41 to score over the shattered Major crew. Against the Centenary Gentlemen the Majors bucked up and after a stilf fight the Champions of the S. I, A. A. were able to score 34 points while the Majors could only threaten the Gentlemen goal. In the final match of the season, the Turkey Day clash with Howard, the Bulldog squad was able to eke out a win of 13 to 7 only by the virtue of the magic toe of Bancroft, diminutive Howard star. While the season just passed was the most disastrous experienced by the Millsaps squad in recent years, such could only have been expected froin the unauspicious omen attendant upon the beginning of the Major practice last September. In anticipation one can readily see that with the addition of more than twenty men from an excellent team and with the loss of only three men by graduation the Major team should easily rank among the best in the South for the 1927 season. So much is past history. All eyes to the front and let ' s sei ' what we can see. May the teanx win consistently in 1927. Ri ' sults of tin- season, slated eondsely, folloivs: Millsaps o; .

Zimoski Coadi Coach Zimoski came to Mill-, saps in 1922 when a mentor was needed to build up athletics from the bottom. He has had an up- hill flght but at various times ho has succeeded in having teams which were a credit both to the College and to coaching ability. To coach all sports successfully is too much for one man, or for two men. Coach Zimoski needs more assistance.

A. tournament as the MiKsis.- ii.|ii ii-ipi I ' Hciitative, Coach Van Hook, in charg-e of the Major Basketeers, expected this season to write basketljall history. The Freshman team of last year, wliich was little short of marvelous, returned intact, and Ifolstered by a great many lettermen from last year ' s varsity, a squad second to none in the -South was expected. At the forward position. Coach Van Hook had such men as the Weems twins, Krancis and Baxter; Crawford started the season at forward but was soon shifted to Kuard. At center Peevey. Blount and Williams fought matters out. At the guard IMisition Carruth, Rouse, Crawford, Byrd, Everett and Vance made things hot for each niliir. Ill fact, the entire bunch seemed to be giving such lively compatition and dis- plaxiiit; .Mi ' h enthusiasm and ability that it was rather difficult to predict just how mall. IS vMinId stand at the end of the season. It certainly safe to say. however, thai lit cr had there been such a group of performers as these on a Millsaps court. It was particularly encouraging to note the amount of new material after the rather disappointing failure of the sciuad in the year before when the Freshmen aggregation found almost as little dilTiculty in defeating the Varsity as did the other colleges. Regardless of the fact that the team as a team for the 1920 season was not up to the standard, there were enough men of ability to form an excellent background for this year ' s squad. With this residue material from last year and with the new material from the Freshman team. Coach Van Hook had at his finger tips some of the best basketball " fodder " in this part of the country. H ' e did a wonderful work with this inaterial but it was unfortunate that the main oppo- nent of the Majors happened to produce an excellent team the same year that the Majors had developed into a first-class team. And while they did not, at the close of the season, have the bal- ance of power in the xietory eoluiiiii, Ihey held the admiration and liad the co-operation of the student body. With such material and witli suili i .laehinK, there is only one faeter which might be overlooked in the building of a team: that is, the proper attitude on the part of the players toward the coach and toward the training rules. Htretolore at Millsaps there have always been some players who break training; and a tendency for some players to play individual ball rather than to sacrifice personal glory for the good of the team and the school. Little or no trouble was anticipated in this line in the basketball squad and naturally complete co-operation and splendid physical condition wen ' to be expected of all members of the team. l ' or next season, that of 1927-2S, the prospects are again very rosy, and with strict adherance to training rules and by dint of hard worlc Millsaps shoull have a splendid team iit 192S. With the Weems twins, Crawford, Carruth, Williams, Francis, Rouse and Baxter back from the ' 27 Varsity and with Wright. Bealle, Dorman. Welc-h, Hill, Touchstone, Marble, Wheeless and J. Byrd from the Minors of ' 27. the outlook is encouraging, and piospects good for a heavier balance in victories for the Season of 192S.

During 1925-26 the field, which had been graded, was sodded and allowed to settle. This year the cinder track was completed. It is now believed that track at Millsaps will come out of the oblivion in which it has rested and take its rightful place with the other sports. There is at Millsaps enough good track material to develop one of the best track teams in the State. There are for sprinters such men as Crawford, Francis, Caver, Holloman, Griffin and Dribben; for the quarter there are Carmichael, Lowry and Bishop; for the half. Nelson, Jones and Harris; at the longer distances Williamson, Stephens and Drane. Both Touchstone and Crawford could be developed into pole vaulters above the average. Thev are also potential broad jumpers. Rouse and Graham can throw the javelin in good form. Rouse could be de- veloped to throw the discus. Dribben, who is track manager this year, shows good form at the hurdles. These are just a few of the men at Millsaps who could be developed into a real track team. With the opening of the new cinder track and athletic field quite a squad began to report daily for practice, and Coach Zimoski put them through strenuous drills with a view toward sending representatives to the S. I. A. A. meet in the Spring; but at the present writing interest seems to be waning and to use the expression of a track man " track seems to be blowed up for this year, " which is to be deplored. Millsaps could and should have a first class track team. Pat L ' nirii ' ty-fivi THE 1927 BOBASHELA OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE Major Baseball HE 1926 Major baseball team had a fair season, although the victories did not number as high as the defeats. Taking all things into consideration, the student body was very well pleased with the record. In Millsaps Crllege baseball is not playing so large a part in the athletic activity as it did in former days. Not so many years ago about the only athletic activity in the College was on the diamond; we have traditions of large crowds, intense enthusiasm, and honest-to-goodness baseball on the Major field. With the lifting of the ban on inter-collegiate sports in 1919 by the action of the two Methodist Conferences and putting the control of ath ' etics under the Board of Trustees and Faculty, football began its rapid though steady growth in our College, as it has in nearly every other college and university, seemingly to the detriment of other sports, l asketliall has managed to hold its own and even to grow in importance. But baseball has somehow or other seeined to drop in the scale of importance. Intercollegiate and practice game are regularly scheduled each Spring, but attendance is small and whole- hearted interest lacking, both on the part of the student body and the outside supporters. The usual Preachers ' League vs. Faculty game is presented each Campus Day, April i, which draws well and provokes much mirth ; but on the whole the general enthusiastic support of baseball by students and athletes has slackened considerably. Just recently it was announced that some of the larger universities were planning to aliandon baseball a ' together and not even attempt to assemble and train teams. This, we think, is too pessimistic. Millsaps will hardly have to take such a drastic step for it is believed that the fault is not entirely with local conditions that such a situation has arisen, and baseball will soon regain its rightful place in the athletic interests of the College. There were nid five men lost from the 1926 s(|uad an l the 1927 team is not lacking in good material. The following lineup seems to be Coach Van Hook ' s regulars: Crawford c, Francis p, Blount lb. Bilbo 2b, Carruth ss, Byrd 3b, Kurts rf, Caver cf. Rouse If. He has some mighty good men in reserve, such as Peevey ib. Rape 2b, Moody p, Calhoun c, Swango p, Walton of. Brooks p, McManus c, Sessions 2b, Chapman ss, Shipman p, Fleming of, Ladner of. Wills 2h, Baker of, Tatum of, Baxter of, and several others. The Majors have some good ball players in the squad, but they seem to have gotten off on the wrong foot. They lost five out of the first six games pla ed. Oldtimers, when they tell of the days that have gone, cause students of the present day to hope that they too will have a victorious team equal to that of the old stars of the diamond who won the State chainpionship back in 1916. We trust that the spirit of those past years will hover over the Majors as a constant reminder that to the faithful and earnest will come a lasting remembrance of another vear of work well done.

A bit later in the season NN ' hitehead and Fowler, Ford and Boswell defeated the Yazoo City teain in doubles. The team will contend in a state tournament at Mississippi A. M. to determine the State representative to the S. I. A. A. tournament at Birmingham- Southern. Professor M. C. ' hite is coaching the team. Professor White was State Champion in singles year before last and runner-up last year. Under his able super ision the team is making steadv progress. Coach White has made several other matches, some of which will be played on Mill- saps courts. The courts were worked over at the beginning of the season, new back stops were built and a new court constructed on South Campus. These improvements will be to the advan- tage of both players and spectators. ' hitehead, who is tennis manager, has de eloped into a spleiulid net pla er. Fowler is show- ing excellent form. Ford, who has taken the place of Blackwell ( wilhilrawn from school) is working hard and should make a good player. Boswell, High School Singles Champion last year, is showing real ability in all lines of the sport.

Year before last a movement was begun to construct a course; plans were immediately laid and work begun on the greens. Thus far little work other than that on the greens has been done, and yet the course is more than an ordinary one. The nine holes are scattered well over the North Campus that extends along West Street and toward As lum Heights, affording excellent hazards and reasonably good fairways. A golf club was formed last year and some measure of organization was reached before the end of the school year, but no definite organization has been consummated for this ear. There are a number of golf-fiends who regularly tramp the course between classes in the mornings or sojourn in the grove to the east searching for missing golf balls for the greater part of sunny afternoons. Regularly are heard the shouts of some one who has had the good fortune to make a hole in three or four or who has " broken " 50. Some of these are rapidly developing into po- tential ri vals of Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen, while others seem to be doomed to the ranks of the " dub. " There is, of course, the select circle of some half dozen or so who have made scores at one time or another low enough to earn the admiration of those who plod around in the 90 ' s or above. Golf is growing in popularity, ho vever, and it is probable that steps will be taken soon to encourage its growth by the expenditure of a little time and money on the course and the organiza- tion of a club that will actually and effectively function. Fafff iiincty-ninc THE 1927 BOBASHELA OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE Tke Minors of 1926-27 HE brightest year in the history of Minor football. " Such were the words used by Millsaps students and supporters in referring to the closing freshman football season. With only one game lost and one tied, the Minors turned in a total of 146 points, while their opponents struggled to earn 39 over the Purple line. Much credit is due to Coach Van Hook for the manner in which he developed the team and successfully guided it through the season; at the same time much credit is due to the untiring efforts and splendid spirit demonstrated by the Frosh squad both in practice and in the games. In the practice game with the Mississippi School for the Deaf, the Minors gave the first evidence of the successful season which was to follow. Easily outplaying the " Dummies " in all branches of the game, the Minors won b3 ' a 32 to o score, although almost all of the twenty or more who had answered the call for practice played in the game. The next experimental affray resulted in another overwhelming victory for the Frosh eleven. Port Gibson College fell before the onrush of the husky backs and speedy ends of the Minors to the tune of 53 to 7. Actually, the Port Gibson score was not earned, resulting as it did after the umpire ' s whistle had blown. The score counted, nevertheless, and the Minors lost the honor of a white-wash score. During the State Fair, the first real contest of the year came. The heavy Clarke Memorial College eleven of Newton, fresh from the game with the Choctaw ' arsity, in which they held the Indians to a 21-point lead, invaded the camp of the Minors and carried off a hard-earned 20 to o score. The defeat of the Millsaps Youngsters came directly as a result of their inex- perience and the superior ability of their opponents to take advantage of the breaks. In the fourth game of the season the Minors defeated the Hinds County Junior College team by a score of 34 to 6 in a game which, though loosely played, easily showed the Minors ' superiority in all branches of the game. Then, just before the big game of their schedule — that with the Papooses of the Choctaw camp — the Freshmen took on the Delta State Teachers College. Despite the profusion of unfortunate fumbles by the Purple backfield, the Minors downed the Teachers by a score of 27 to 6. Then came ■ battle. The Freshmen were doped to go down before the Papoose outfit by a score of from two to four touchdowns. The Baby Choctaws were confident. They were a heavy and reasonably well-seasoned lot. But the Minors had more than their share of grit and tenacity. From the very opening whistle to the last two or three minutes of the fight, the Freshmen consistently outplayed the Redskins, and even in the last minutes when their strength was beginning to fail before the onrush of fresh Papoose warriors, they held their own and kept the threatening onslaught from bringing results. It ended in a scoreless tie, but with all deference to the ability of the Papoose eleven it must be said that the Minor squad emerged with the largest part of the laurel wreath of victory. It is particularly pleasing to the upper classmen and alumni that the Frosh should display such marked ability, since the Freshman s(iuad of today makes up the Varsity team of tomorrow. The training derived from active participation in the Freshman sports of College is the deter- mining factor in judging members for the Varsity teams for the following year. Such being the case, it is easily seen that football at Millsaps has a bright and brilliant future.

The entire Minor squad showed promise of at least a suc- cessful season. It looked as if we were going to have another Champion Freshman Team — there was a wealth of material and plenty of enthu.iasm in practice. Many of the freshmen came here with good records. But when the season was over the rosy prospects had gone glimmer- ing. Although the Freshmen scored 163 points to their opponents 177, the games won anc " ) lost were only three for the Frosh and four for opponents. The three victories were against high school teams. As a team nothing can be said for them, as individual players much can be said. Wright, center and high-scorer, was a player for several years during his h ' gh school Avork. lie is a good floor general aiul a consistent pla er.

Other men who show up well are Aver , understutlx to Wriglit, Marble, N ' elsh, B rd, Hill, Hinson, Eichelberger and several others. The importance of Freshman coaching at Millsaps cannot be stres ed too much. What the Varsity teams will be depend on what the I ' reshman teams are. With haphazard methods of Freshman coaching we camun expect winning ' arsity teams. Millsaps will continue to grow but to progress with other colleges we must ha e an efhcient and complete coaching stafF. Iiundiid K (} " Then come wild meather, come sleel or snow.

To become a member of the All One Club a student must have on that record during the current .year an average of 90 or above. The Club has no officers and holds no meetings but it is a decided honor to be listed as an All One Student. The name itself is an incentive for better effort on the part of students spurring them on toward the highest degree of intellectual efficiency. An improvement over present conditions would be the organization of this group into an active body the ideal and purpose of which, in addition to making 90 and above, would be to assist by tutoring, if necessary, other students to make All Ones; thereby making the general average higher and helping backward students.

Mill saps PI avers I ' he diamntic t;ilent of Millsaps has not, as M ' t, been organized into a Dramatic Club, but with the initiation of the Millsaps Players, a club in infancy, something was accomplished that should have a broadening effect on education in Millsaps College. " The Noble Outcast " was presented last year by the Millsaps Players both at Millsaps and at several other schools within the State with success. This year " Ann-What ' s-Her-Name " was played before an appreciative audience in Millsaps College and also at Crystal Springs. The cast as a whole played their parts well. Lem Seawright, who played the part of Anthony Wheat, Peggy O ' Neal as the maid, and I ' lila McCleskey playing the Grandmother showed outstanding ability as amateur actors. If such talent were trained and developed it is possible that some day it could be asserted that such and such a fainous actor once played as an amateur on the Millsaps stage. Drama interprets the experiences of life; it appeals to the ear as well as to the eye, and to the heart as well as to the brain. Millsaps through the medium of a Dramatic Club would have an opportunity to train actors who ma in future years help to raise the ideals and standards of the theatre.

Last Spring they did their part in making their desire a reality by contributing no small sum for the equipment of a band. This year the band, under the direction of Roger Philp, has added much to entertainments given at the College and has been a great " pep " stimulant at the foot- ball games played in Jackson. At the time this is written there are rumors that the band is on the verge of disorganization. It is hoped that they are unfoun4ed. Such a thing would be de- plorable. Millsaps needs a first class band. Much practice is necessary to perfect a band. What- ever is necessary, whether it is a resident director or greater support from the student body, should be forthcoming. Millsaps must and will have a top-notch hand.

But when you are drinking freely. From the bitter cup ; Know that now you ' re at the bottom, ou can but go up.

Interior decorated vith pictures and made comfortable looking with rugs, bookcases, etc. Mr. Sherwood is seated at R in Morris chair; Gilbert walks nervously up and down as curtain rises). Mr. Slier-zLocd: " Well, my boy, after the ceremony tonight the estate becomes yours. Seeins to me you might — er — might appear a little more exultant on your wedding night. Gilbert: " Why should I be happy? Father, love is the only thing that can make a man happy. " Mr. Sherwood: " Tut, tut — wrong you are again. U ' hat has come over (iu? ' ou surel could not desire a fairer lady than Marion Fairchild? " Gilbert: " You are right there, father. Miss Fairchild is exceedingly beautiful, but surel you must know that it is not love that promotes this fair lady ' s acceptance? " Mr. S iericood (sharply): " Why, then, has she given you the honor? " Gilbert ( u:earily stoppinr his pacing): " Simple enough! For generations the proud name of Fairchild has greatly desired to link itself with the e iually proud and wealthier — especially wealthier — name of Sherwood, and . . . . " Mr. Sherwood (abruptly) : " Gilbert, this is the second time you have uttered that statement, let it be the last. There are dozens of men vho would gladly change places with you tonight. Your trip abroad has certainly left you with ([ueer ideas. (Rising a[ul exiting at L) Remember, in just two hours. " Gilbert: " Two hours and the greatest crime a man can do will be done. And yet, what else could I do? Father has given me everything, more than my own father could ever have done had he lived. He has made my art possible. I couldn ' t refuse him this one thing. (Goes into the sun parlor, stands before t ie easel, and removes (t cover, under wliicli is tlie painting of a beautiful i irl).

Tony: " Oh, Meesta Gilbe ' t, you no lova Mees Beryl? " Gilbert: " My Lord! Tony Roliniski! Where did you come from? " Tony: " Italia. " Gilbert (excitedly) : " Tony, for Heaven ' s sake explain.

Two months ago I left you safe in Italy selling roses to the tourists at Nance, a respectable bov taking violin lessons from Ber — Miss Donizetti and today you are a tramp. Explain!

(Turns and iL-alks lii his hack to Tony. Tony drains a revolver from his bosom and shoots Gilbert in the shoulder. Gilbert staggers, then falls limp to the floor.)

CJiibert with his arm in a sling is seated in Morris chair at R. His easel is beside him). Mr. Sherivood: " Well, my boy, how is that arm this morning? Still mourning because you are unable to paint— youth is so impatient. " Gilbert: " Yes, father, so much idleness is almost unbearable. " Mr. Sherivood (angrily): " If I ever lay eyes on that rascal who had the nerve to shoot you I ' ll fix him. Poor excuses — these detectives we have in this State. " Gilbert: " Yes, the detectives are slow in solving this mystery (aside) especially since I bribed them. I couldn ' t tell on Tony. " Air. Sherivood: " One month ago today you were to be married. Oh, by the way, I see that Miss Fairchild is traveling with her mother. " Gilbert: " Yes, I am discarded (aside), thanks to Tony. " Mr. Sherwood: " Strange things — women — (observing for the first time the picture on the easel). Why, Gilbert, who in the name of Heaven in this girl? I-I ' ve seen her face. Could it be — no it couldn ' t be — but the eyes are the same . . . . " Gilbert: " Why, father, that is the dearest — er — I mean a charming young lady in Italy, the daughter of a famous violinist — only — " Mr. Sherwood: " But her name Gilbert — her name? " Gilbert: " Beryl Donizetti — " Mr. Sherwood (grasping the back of the chair): " Donnizetti? Donnizetti ? Gilbert, while you were abroad you traveled under the name of Brown, did you not? " Gilbert (surprised) : " Why, yes, you advised me to, since father had studied in Italy. " (Enter maid at L). Maid: " A young lady to see you, sir, in private, no card. " Mr. Sherwood: " Show her in, Julia. " (Gilbert gels up slowly and exits at C. Enters Beryl Donizetti, plainly dressed in traveling suit, very erect and proud). Beryl: " Mr. Sherwood, I have been asked to give you this. " (Hands him a letter. Ji ' ith a bewildered look he, takes the letter and reads): " My dear father: Yes, I dare call you that, for you are my father, and to me you will always be dear. After twenty years of exile I come asking for forgiveness. I know I did wrong and yet I was so young and mother was gone and I was so happy until Gaetano ' s death. He made me so happy. I did wrong only in that I disobeyed you and broke my promise to mother to obey you always. I have longed for you for years, but my pride — the Sherwood pride — held me back. Now, it is different. I have, the doctors say, only a few more months to live. Father, I can not die without seeing you! I came to America. I am sending you my child, Beryl, do unto her as you would to me. Your sorrowing child, Marv. " (Covers his face with his hands). Mr. Sherwood: " Forgive me — oh God: Forgive me, Mary! Mary! " Beryl: " Don ' t, grandfather, don ' t! It isn ' t too late to mend. " Mr. Slierwfood: " And to think I tried to ruin Ciilbert ' s life in the same way. Oh, what a fool you ' ve been Sherwood. " (Enter Gilbert from C). Gilbert: " Beryl! You here! " Beryl: " Gilbert, not you! " Mr. Sherwood: " Gilbert, you knew my grandchild, Beryl, before I did. (Draws Beryl to him and takes Gilbert ' s hand). " Now, my dear boy, you know my hidden sorrow, which has turned into a blessing. Beryl, he has been true all the time in his heart. It has taken me twenty- five years to learn my lesson, but now I have it: ' Let love run its own race, a helping hand only becomes a stumbling block. ' " (Places Beryl ' s hand in Gilbert ' s and exits at L, leaving them together.) CURTAIN Page one liundrrd si. ty-two THE 1927 BOBASHELA OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE HIGH-LIGHTS OF THE YEAR IN PICTURES Pai e one hundred sixty-tlin THE 1927 BOBASHELA OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE Colleg( N ideal college is one in which the co-operation between faculty and students is harmonious; and one in which both are striving toward a definite aim. That aim to be the training of men and women for efficient citizenship. Colleges exist for two purposes ; first, to train men and women for certain pro- fessions ; second, to provide an opportunity for training and research without regard to immediate utility; to instill into the individual certain fundamentals and ideals which will be used in the important activities of life; to train men and women whn will in some degree become leaders among men; to educate the intellect of men and women who are to rise above the ranks, and to teach them to reason well in all matters. The second purpose just stated should be the primary aim of the college, for the man of a special skill may be turned into an unskilled laborer over night. The world needs men and women who are far sighted; who can think and do many things intelligently. Life takes on a new meaning for the freshman in college. His first two vears are filled with startling events. Goethe says character is formed " In the stream of the world, " not in stillness and isolation, but in the fast-moving, busy world. The college fresh man is just entering into the activities of this fast-moving world. His training should be that which will form habits of upright character and such that will induct him into the major activities of life. One should go to college for work, for discipline and training of the mental faculties and for the broadening effect of life in a sort of miniature world in which the study of books is onlv one of the many interests. One comes out of college into the modern world with a broadened point of view, a quickened perception, and a training that will in, some degrees make him a poten- tial leader. If he has got less out of his four years ' training in college his time and effort have not been worth the trouble. The college-trained man and woman has many times the chances of the other of becoming a citizen of influence and importance. This has been proved by an investigation of the " Who ' s Who in America. " A college-trained thinker with initiative can do much more toward etficientlv developing his community, state and nation than the man without college training. The Editor.

" I thought that was a Millsaps bell, " said the Ducky Duck, and he paddled around the room in a logical wav, then came and stood by the " Made in (jermany " Sheep. At this point a sad voice said, " Millsaps — ah, those roguish students, changing us into roly-polies, gimcracks, and what-nots. I don ' t know wh the did it, unless the Sheep over there made them all want to get out and go to Cjermany to hear those jokes for themselves. " " Not I, " said the " Made in Clermany " Sheep, " I think the one who caused this was the Tin Soldier. He never cut a class and they took the first opportunity to get a rest. " " Crav — er, I mean Tin Soldier, what have you to say for yourself? " " Don ' t remind me of those classes, I am resting. However, I am not to lilame for that trick. " And he looked continuously at the ceiling. " I propose that we have a trial and see just who i to blame f(U- all this, " said the Red Red Rooster. " It might have been that Chnke Berry over there. " At this the Berr popped right out of the Picture Book and turned quite purple. " How dare you call me a ( " lioke Berry ! I ' m a Cherry — a Cherry, do you understand? " " I beg vour pardon, Mr. Cherry — of course you are a Cherry. " It was quite evident, though, that the Cherr ' was in a bad humor, which was as out of the ordinary as could be. " It is that Egg over there that got us into this, him with his — " At this Humpty-Dumpty rolled right off the table and began to talk excitedlv. " The house will come to order, and we ' ll try this out and see who is responsible for it, " said the Master of Ceremonies. " Who ' s going to be the Judge? " piped up a tinkly voice that belonged to a little Iron Bank, shaped exactly like a wobbly pig, which was rooting up peiuiies on the floor. " Nobody would ever say that Mr. H. Hooligan caused them to do it. They liked him too well. He ' ll be the Judge. " This smiling pers(niage bowed so low that his tin can hat almost came off. " Now the first on trial is the Flapper Doll. " " Honorable Judge, the freshmen liked my English Parallels. " " All right, next. Jack-in-the-Box ? " The lid sprang back and out popped a Layman Doll with specs dangling from a after announcing Religious Week eased back ItUo his box anil pulled down the lid. " I ' he Dilapidated Wooden Doll ! " " [udge, I was a great man with the ladies, like this. " I ' he Clothespin Doll, wearing white socks; the Clingerbread, with a vivisected frog; the Little Cowboy, riding his Hobby Horse; the little Parisian Mannikin, gesticulating and crying, " Mon Cher, Mon Cher, " were called in turn, and each denied the charge. The Jumping Jack, with an educated look, was still jumping and saying excitedly, " Interestingly enough — " when the doin- to the auditorium burst open arul in rushcil the shouting stuilents — and . pril the First spring, and ' I ' he ' would never have cimsented to have me was over.

WARE Manager I ' ur r mir liuiiJiiil si-vini THE 1927 BOBASHELA OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE Who s Who Election Revle v AST year the Editor conceived the idea of the election each year of a Master Major and a Representative Co-ed, the two honors being the highest which the Student Body could bestow on two of their classmates. Only Seniors are eligible for the two honors. It has been carried out this year, and it is hoped that it will become one of the permanent honors in the College. The writer really started t write something humorous, but decided that the above should be said, and no lietter pla e than this could be found. The original intention will now be at- tempted. Anent this couple this year — well, we wish them peace. Oreat minds run ill the same channels. This time a lot of them did — in two channels — result: Dorman and Drane made a tie of it for the Greenest Freshman. Lem Seawright is the most original. Why didn ' t the faculty leave him alone ith the Jazz Baby? Not onlv original, but witty and versatile as well. Elected on three things! We wonder if his sinile had anything to do with it. A good many of the students got votes for the ' orst Woman-llater — " (ioodness, inaybe they ' ll outgrow it " (this from some of the co-eds). How does it feel to be a Dignified Senior? We ' d like to try it. Here ' s your chance, Freshies, start early. Evervhodv has his favorite professor, and all of them got mentioned, but we take our hats off to " Happy. " He beats them all cold. Wonder if the Jolliest Junior of today will be the Dignifieil Senior of toinorrow ? You ' d better practice up on your stuff, Dick. Our Most Handsome man leaves us this ear. Take note of that, you boys who were dis- appointed this year; every dog has his day. We hardly think it was fair abnut the Superiority Complex — so many didn ' t know what it meant — thought it took two to make the thing. Well, at an rate, we hope they were no seeing double. By the way, it isn ' t so great to be an Editor after all, so the present one says (consider that. Future Aspirants). Even if she was elected the Busiest Student and the Most Capable — she got two votes (original) for being the Biggest Bore. It must be great to be the Best Athlete, without any opposition to speak of — Crawford made a Home-Run here. This Who ' s Who ballot is a puzzle, anvhoxv. ' ho can tell the difference between the Most Popular Man and the Master Major? Ihe answer is, the two are the same. They were intended to be " checks " on each other; as well as the two, the Most Popular CJirl and the Representative Co-ed. It is a shame, though, that some of us do not vote just like we feel about these Who ' s ' ho contests — perhaps it isn ' t well that we would at that, for some of the places would have one vote each for every student in college. Screet must have been practicing her art — sevent -seven votes! . Has she been flirting with that many? Looks funny — it do! Let ' s see, who was it said that laughing vas healthy? Take a look at the Biggest CSiggler — doesn ' t it pay? The Campus Sheik must have earned his title — he got sixteen votes for Beau Brunnnell as well. The Peppiest Student says that it is hard to live up to his reputation these spring days. A. R. G. Mississippi Children s riome Society r u- Offiirrs of the Society .Irr: |. R.

The paper is about two years old, not having been established at the time of the present writing. The time is the near future; 1930 will do as well as not as the present Chamber of Commerce hopes to have the population increased to about fifty thousand souls by then. There are in the room perhaps seven or eight desks with piles of paper on each one. There are men at work at all but two of the desks; there are three doors to the room; one at the left which opens into the Editor ' s office, one at the right which opens into the pressroom, and the one at the rear which opens to the general public). The door at the rear opens and John Gay, the star reporter of the Herald and also the rival of Frank Locke for the hand of Ruth Ellison, enters. The other men look up and nod a Kreetinj as he comes in. He goes to a vacant desk, picks up a handful of papers, scans them, and puts them down. He then removes his hat, puts it on the desk, and goes to the center of the room. Turns, faces the others and speaks. Gay: " Fellows, come here for a minute. I want to let you in on a secret. " (Tliey all rrotcd around him). Gay: " All of you kno v how that insect, Locke, moons around all day, dreaming of the time when the Big Jioss will send him out to cover a murder, robbery, or some kind of mystery, don ' t you? " (Thfy all nod assent. Some grunt, and others say, " Yes " ). Gay: " Well, Fve got a " scheme that will make him the laughing stock of everybody. If it ' s carried out right. If you want to try it, Fll see that it ' s done right, myself. What do you say? ' ' (T iey all appreciate a good joke so they shout, " Good " ). Gay: " All right! But don ' t yell so loud. The scheme is this — Fll go downstairs, call Locke on the phone, disguising my voice like the Boss ' s, and tell him that the cops are going to raid the old deserted Handers house on Nevada street about 9:30 tonight, and that we want him to cover it, doing it in about four hundred words. This whole thing will be just a Snipe Hunt for him. There won ' t be any police raid, and he ' ll be the only one in the house. Do you think we can do it? " (They nod, grunt and say " Yes " in assent). Gay: " Fll be going on down before he comes on up byt you all be sure and keep mum about it, or Fm liable to get canned, (lie picks up his hat and goes out the rear door, they go hack ot their icork. The noise of the typeivriters begins, and directly Locke, the dreamer, enters by the ' rear door. The others keep at their ivork and do not look up). Locke: " Hello, fellows. How are you all? " (They keep at their ivork, grunting a response to Locke ' s greeting, lie notices this, then smiles as if he thoug it of something). Locke: " Have a cigar, any of you? " (They all look up suddenly, filled with interest). Locke: " Fd enjoy giving you the cigars, but I haven ' t any, see? " (Then Jones, the champion smoker of the office, bursts loose). Jones: " For the love of Mike! Sit down and shut up! " Locke: " With the help of God, I think I shall. " (As he sits doivn the Editor comes from his office and leaves by the rear door. There is silence, save for the noise of the type ' writers, for a minute or tiuo, there the telephone on Locke ' s desk rings, fie ansivers it). Locke: " Hello! Yes Yes Sure (interested). All right, Fll do it (smiling). " (He puts the receiver in place, takes his hat, and goes out of the rea r door. After he goes out the other men turn around and wink at each other). CURTAIN Scene II (The scene is in the basement of the old Handers house on Nevada street. The basement is perhaps ten feet high, and is piled nearly to the top with what looks like egg crates. In the center of the space about fifteen feet square there is a table around which are four chairs. Surrounding the table and chairs are the crates. Evidently this is a storehouse for some gang of crooks, for an honest person w ould hardly store his goods in an abandoned house on a dark street in the suburbs of a city. At this time no one is in the room. The room is dark, and the audience cannot see any of Page one hundred seventy-thri THE 1927 BOBASHELA OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE its contents. ThiTe are two doors, one on the right which leads underground to the garage, and the one on the left which leads to the kitchen. The door on the ri.ght opens, a beam of light from a tlashll. ht plays about the room; then two men enter. The man with a flashlight goes to the center of the room, turns on the electric light, and puts the flashlight in his pocket. The audience can see the contents of the room now. One man is Judge Handers, the owner of the house; the other is his secretary. V. H. Burkett. Both are middle-aged men.) Btirk: " Judge, you sure are a smart man. Nobody but you would ever have thought of out- fitting the basement to this old house into a storehouse for the liquor. And it was a good scheme of viHirs to move out in the rouMtr and pretend to be farming. (He s iakrs his head txisely). Jiidt e 11.: " Hurk, a successful bootlegger like any other successful business man must use his brains as well as his vitality, he must take advantage of every little trick of the trade that works in his favor, whether it works to the other fellow ' s advantage or not. So, Burk, whv not have a whiskey warehouse in the basement of this old house which everyone thinks I have left to the ravages of time? The upper part has served its purpose; the basement is serving its purpose now. (After a pause) Burk, have you heard about the Six Best Cellars? " Burk: " No, sir. Unless it ' s about the six best selling books of a year. " Judi e II.: " That ' s not it. I ' ll wager that this ( pointuu In the cases) is one of the Six Best Cellars in the South, bar none. " Burk (Innking at his ii-ateh): " I wonder what ' s keeping ' Red. ' He was supposed to be here ten minutes ago. " Judge ..■ " Aw, probably delayed by some trivial matter, (iive him time, he ' ll be here; he always is. " (.Is he finishes tlie statement, " Red " enters from t ie rii ht door). " Red " : " Good evening. Judge. Hello, Burk. " Burk: " How come you so late? " .Judge ..• " No car trouble was it? " Red: " Nothing serious. I just had to stop in town a few mituites. " Judge II. : " When are the others going to get here? " " Red " : " they ' ll all be here in about ten minutes. " Hurk: " Let ' s check o er tonight ' s dcliverie;.. (T iey go to the right side of tlie room and look at the eases). Judge II.: " We ' ll have to get out a hundretl and fift cases ' tonight, and ye might as well start checking them out now. (He takes a fezc papers from the imier pocket of his coat). Here are four cases for Dr. Christian, first; (they take doiin four cases and mark M. II ' . C. on the lop of them ii:ith chalk) and there are s!x cases for H. Z. Frederick (they take dozen six cases and mark II. . F. on them. Il ' hile this is going on the door on the left opens softly, and Locke sticks his head inside. Then, the riglit door opens, three men come in, and exchange greetings ivith the others. I.oike liastily takes his head hack and doses the door. One of the men. Jim, hands the Judge a telegram). Jim: " Judge, here ' s a telegram that came fur (iu just befcue we left. " (Tlie Judge takes the telegram, opens it and reads it). Judge II.: " It says, " The schooner ' Hiram of Tyre ' was towed into Cnilfport at seven o ' clock this evening. ' Well, that delays our shipment a great deal. ' e haye got along all right thus far, but a bump now and then is bound to come. We shouldn ' t blame the poor fellows for being caught. I am sure they did their best — but they ought to have been more careful. Well, let ' s get to work and get these consignments off. Here are five cases each for D. K. Martin and R. M. Henderson (they take doivn ten cases and mark them icith initials as before) and seven, ca-e:i each for B. M. Ernest, J. W. Franklin and A. H. ' Porter (they take tloii-n tii-enty-one cases and mark them) and six cases for . . . . " (The door on the right opens suddenly, the Judge and his men run for the otiier door, ii-hic ' f Locke opens and stands confronting them ivith a rei ' oli ' er j . Locke: " Stick ' em up. I ' m holding trumps. " (They extend their liands to vard the ceilim . Tlie poliie lome in through the right door and seanli tlie men for n.Leapons. They find a re-vol ' ver on eaili on • . The Chief: " We have got you now. Judge, l.ocke, vh;it in the dickens are (ni doing here? " Locke: " The boss told me at five o ' clock this afternoon that ou were g .ing to make a raid tonight, and for me to cover it. So, I ' m here. " (The Chief looks puzzled, then hursts out laughina) . Locke: " What are you laughing at? " The Chief: " We didn ' t know we were coming here vintil thirty minutes ago. I think some- body had sent you out on a vild goose chase, or — er — to hunt snipes. " Locke (laughing) : " Snipes, or no snipes, I am covering this raid.

I must have had a great big mental bound, followed by a terrific Thump, just before I started writing this. I find that writing without thoughts is as difficult as doing anything else sans thinking. My mind seems a complete vacuum. The building of this " maslnpirce " is almost over. Just the " cornice " to be added. Somewhere, perhaps it was in this space, the Editor of the 1936 Boba-shela wrote that the First Co-Rd Editor was making wild promises about getting out a " better " Annual in 1927. Well, you be the Judge. The Late War was fought to end All wars. From the looks of World Affairs now it seems that the Next War will be fought to end all Debts. It is hoped that such a thing does not become contagious, for the Business Manager still has a lot of collecting to do — getting the money for all these " sold " annuals. It is hard to say whether I feel better from the relief of finishing this thing or what. Anwvay, the nearer I get to the last line the better I feel. Lots of times during the year I have felt like saying a lot of hard, plain facts about everyone who has made this job ilifficult for ine (see page 164, it reads like a prophecy), but right now 1 feel ' ery forgiving 1 feel sort of Right and Proud that I haven ' t, for I DO feel as if it has been worth it. In fact, I feel like the fellow who said that he was proud of the fact that he had refrained t rom beating his wife during the thirty-five years that they had been married. When asked if he thought that he deserved credit for that, he replied, " I certainly do, when I remember the hundreds of times that I felt like it and wanted to. ' ' Ves, " the course " is worth the price, and the " little good does counter-balance the bad, " so — so, GOOD-l yef Sarah Hester Legg. I ' tii r our litindiiJ iiin,ly-si
