L. Smith, a new chapter was begun in the history of Millsaps College. As we turn the first page of the new chapter, it is natural that we also look back at the yellowed but still splendid pages of the first chapter, begun almost fifty years ago, in the days when buggies and bicycles-built-for-two sped up muddy State Street to bring a handful of students to the new school. Styles and customs have changed, but the ideals and high standards of those first years are still respected. To pay tribute to those teachers and students who made those early days memorable, and to symbolize the linking of the traditions of the past and the aspirations of the future in the building of a Greater Millsaps, we have chosen as the theme for the 1939 Bobashela the date of founding of Millsaps College-- 1892. ORB €OHTSHT§ THE COLLEGE THE STUDENT BODY ATHLETICS FEATURES GREEKS ORGANIZATIONS ADVERTISEMENTS BEBICATIO In paying tribute to the past, its traditions, ideals, and its people, we are reminded of one who remembers well the " Gay Nineties " and who with priceless bits of philosophy and delightful humor has recalled those days for us and made them live again as he tells his anecdotes in the classroom. Not only has he brought numbers of honors to Millsaps College through personal achievement and through innumerable services to the school, but he has made for himself a permanent place in the hearts of the students he has taught. And so it is to Professor J. Reese Lin, our " guide, philoso- pher and friend " to whom we respectfully dedi- cate this volume. MELVIN AT MILLSAPS Once upon a time there was a high school senior who for purposes of publication we shall designate as Melvin Wood. And Melvin had always determined that when the time came he would certainly go to Millsaps because his father had gone to Millsaps and his brother had gone to Millsaps and the times that they had had could only be weakly described as good; They were more than good; they were swell; And Melvin had determined that the same were in store for little Mel. So he put away his thoughts of high school and pondered about the fun he was going to have and came out to Millsaps and looked at all the beauties of the campus — of one sort and another — that surround us And then he saw Foundus. Now Founders Hall had been seen by Melvin before when he and his father and his brother came to Jackson for the inauguration of one of Millsaps " presi- dents, But not as a potential residents. No, he had merely viewed it as a building on the campus that maybe had been in style once. Now, however, he viewed it as building where his sleeping and laughing and talking and telephoning would take place for the next number of monce. Momentarily Melvin was cast into gloom, And then he reflected that after all what was a room And after all what fun was a dormitory that was as well furnished as a house; Was he man or mouse. And Melvin said, " Father, I have thought it all over, and I have concluded that if Founders is part of Millsaps, I love Founders because I subscribe to the school of My Country right or wrong, but if wrong, still my country. " And his tolerant father thought it all over too and decided this was not effrontery So he said, " Very well, Melvin, we ' ll go talk it over with U. Z. " Which they did, with the result of loss of money to Mr. Wood, and loss of prestige to Freshman Wood, because he stopped being a senior automatically. Since there are a number of pictures for you to look at and see some of the things Melvin saw, we will take leave of our Freshman feeling few of the sensations experienced by Ferdinand when he contemplated flowers. For by this time Melvin is established in Founders, feeling anything but peace- ful when he tries to solve the eternal and sphinx-like problem of the Founder ' s showers. DR. M. L. SMITH €Ae PRESIDENT In the short time that Dr. Smith has been President of Millsaps College, every member of the student body has been influenced by the friend- liness and personal interest shown them by the President. An excellent scholar and a man of foresight and unlimited industry, Dr. Smith, by his work this year, has already indicated that his career as President will be a glorious chapter in the history in the building of The Greater Millsaps. DR. D. M. KEY There are a number of forces that have made Millsaps an out- standing college, esteemed for its high standards and enviable record of achievement, but among the strongest forces has been the loyalty and vision of Dr. D. M. Key. For the years of faithful service to this " s mall liberal arts college " — years dur- ing which the light in his office has burned late many a night as he worked to help Millsaps keep the honorable position it occu- pies in the educational world, we hereby express again the appreciation of the student body. MRS. MARY B. STONE Through the difficulties of freshman year, to the day of graduation, Millsaps girls have always the assurance of a wise and sympathetic counsellor as well as teacher in Mrs. Mary B, Stone. Through her interest in women student activities, Mrs. Stone has been a strong influ- ence in forming well rounded personalities as well as well trained minds in the women graduates. mtti .y »t v ;;; I | " ' ' w »» ' MURRAH HALL SULLIVAN-HARRELL HALL FACULTY MRS.

REICKEN Biology " Ckc FACULTY 1939 was a gala year for Millsaps--first, the inauguration of the new president, Dr. Smith, and then, for the first time, the cele- bration of Founders Day. In the pictures below: Dr. Robert Lester of New York City speaks at the inauguration of Dr. Smith; Hugh Clegg, former student of Millsaps, visits the campus; Dr. Smith takes the oath of office; the Glee Club sings at Founders Day celebration; Mr. Clegg speaks on Founders Day; Seniors take part in the celebration. 19 CLASSY, WHAT? Well, where did we leave Melvin? Oh, yes, he went to Millsaps and then he went to classes and then he went crazy Because he saw right off that if you worked real had on Freshman Lit and wrote your weekly impressions you couldn ' t get up all your trig too and then Van Hook thought you were lazy. So then if you tried to get up English Monday and then on Wednesday get up trig, (which is planned economy, the Russians inform us) The English assignment on Monday would be trivial and on Wednesday it would be enormous. Anyway, he was not alone in these troubles involving education As he realized after a little meditation. So Melvin said, ' ' I will bestir myself and meet my class-mates — " My a-making mates and my fail-mates and my pass-mates — " Eds, and coeds, for misery loves company, " And I might as well know a bunch of people to whom I can be grumpy if I care to grumpany. " So Melvin bestirred himself. He went to the grill and he never took a girl, he just stood there, smiled aloofly and ate candy. Which led coeds to reflect that at dances he would be handy. In the future they were nice to Melvin, and that made him happy, which all Millsaps students should be, according to our president, M. L. S. Whis is a noble sentiment, we must confess. Melvin learned that there is a vicious circle which is said to be the last word in educational (vicious) circles. Which works this way: you make all B ' s because you go to class regularly and so you are on the Dean ' s list and not required to go to class and this is a great honor. So, lest no one realize that you have this great honor you cut a few classes and then you cut a few more and then you take the exam and you don ' t have the B average and then you go to class next semester and get back your B average and so it goes until you feel that life is just a series of ups and downs and wails and gurgles. He was handy in bull sessions too because he read Readers Digest and Time and Life And had an excellent memory which could always produce a gorier murder con- cerning knives whenever someone in the state was murdered with a knife. He developed the nonchalance of a dean ' s-list-student-cutting-for-the-thir- teenth-time which he employed in walking out of class fifteen minutes early or coming in fifteen minutes tardy, And he was not particular pious, but on the other hand, he wasn ' t nardy. So he was popular among the students whose pictures are represented on the following pages, with gay ninety borders hemmin ' in. Probably because there is no one of them who did not have at least one of the attributes attributed to Melvin, except that according to the Millsaps college bulletin, March 1939, 165 of the attributes may be considered as applying to the feminine. 20 Hardy, West, Beard, Hudson, Burkhead.

Z too, And if you are a Choctaw, — then you know the rest of the chant we chant when we are enchanted by a half-back or quarter-back breaking through. But most especially, on this occasion, hurrah for U. Z., surnamed Hathorn, Upon whom we sometimes vent our wrath and teases when we want a good sport to tease or vent or wrathorn. U. Z., however, is worthy of merit. Because his is one of the major sponsors of the major school sperit. I make this remark because you all know that he is sorta funny About money. But we really shouldn ' t criticize when we stop to think about it because among other monies that he takes is $15 for student activity. Which solves a number of problems throughout the year, the main one being that we need n ever miss a campus ball-game, even if the bread-line is in dangerous proclivity. For out of the $15 comes our tickets to all of the football games and basketball and just ball games in general, And we need never stop to reflect that we are traitors to the purple and white just because we spent our last fifty cents for animal vegetable or mineral. No stiff backbone do we need, no budget, no question of endurance At least, where campus ball-games are concerned, because U. Z., the nice man, has taken over and gives us the Student Activity Fee as insurance. Therefore we go to the football games and basketball games et al And U. Z. is our pal. Because it is through him that we have seen in action and color the people and passes that live again in the following pages in black and white; It is through him that we are able to share the thrills of the various games whether they be played in the afternoon or at night. It is he that sees that uniforms are brought and lights are lighted and balls are put up safely after the game and likewise visiting teams So it seems That we are not amiss in proclaiming this to be A hurrah for U. Z. 48 1st Row: Shelton, Hardy, Hamilton, Richardson, J. Currie, Dickson 2nd Row: Tynes, Miles, Walters, Hegwood 3rd Row: Winborne, Thompson, Williams, Cox, Triplett 4th Row: Blough, K.

VAN HOOK Director of Athletics This year ' s squad ended the march of two generations of Major gridsters through the hands of Head Coach T. L. Gaddy. From his first year, when he produced a championship team. Coach Gaddy showed that he could inspire Millsaps ' small and inexperienced teams to play football far above their heads. Three lean years in a row with lack of material started the Majors out on a hard road in 1938. A head injury to Robert Cox, co-captain of the Militants, at the first of the season deprived Coach Gaddy of his best running back. In spite of the loss through injuries of two more varsity backs, Mike McElhaney and Bert Sumrall, the Majors kept digging in all season. Against eleven strong opponents the Militants gained but one victory, yet managed to hold their enemies to close scores. Coach Gaddy leaves Millsaps at the end of his eighth year, with wishes of the best of luck from the students who have and will continue to admire him as a leader of men. 52 S an SQUAD FOR YEARS TO COME Upon the resignation of his friend and former coach, T. L. Gaddy, Henry L. ' ' Hook " Stone agreed to lead the Militant march on the gridiron, begin- ning with spring practice in 1939. Coach Stone comes to Millsaps with a record of eight state championships for his ten years as coach of the Copiah-Lincoln Wolfpack. With the growth of " Greater Millsaps " , bringing with it a better choice of gridiron material, the Pur- ple wheel of fortune is due to swing around again to the point where Coach Gaddy first placed cham- pion Majors on the field.

Though they dropped out of the Dixie Conference Tourney in the semi-finals, the Majors boasted the two highest scorers in the loop. They were Keyes Currie, conference leader, and Cannon " Shotgun " Herron, second gun in the Dixie. Against the powerful Clinton Choctaws Coach Van Hook ' s men had heart- breaking luck. Both of the first games with the Tribesmen slipped through the Majors ' fingers by margins of one point each. Twice in the second con- test the game rested in the hands of Captain Keyes Currie, but the iron ring twice turned a cold shoulder to the Majors ' efforts to sink the deciding free shot. Besides Currie ' s brilliant, unorthodox shots the long tosses of Herron and John Thompson were not less important in keeping the Militants in the front ranks of the Dixie Conference.

Only a lack of heavy hitters kept the Militants from being one of the leading Southern nines. Herbert Selman with his slow rolling ball led the Majors in most of their victories. Other Top moundmen were Charlie Ward, Wallace Litton, Brandon Bell, " Doc " Hamilton, George Todd and Kelton Lowry. Stars of the infield were Edward Matulich, fresh- man, and Milan Richardson, sophomore. William Green and Eugene Price turned in air-tight performances in the outfield. Samuels, Ballard, Lester Cooper, and Edward Fleming in the infield; and Eual Cooper and Charles Hammack in the outfield started most of the time for the Majors. Red Wilson and Virgil Anders took time about behind the plate. Noble, Bell, Cooper, Hathorne, Todd, Ward, Ballard, Green, Price, Dean. Lowery, Humph- reys, Richardson. Maturlich. Wilson, Gaddy.

First and ten .... With the greatest of ease. m TENNIS Epperson, Thorne, Wright, Hudson. Of the six members of the Major net squad four were freshmen, one of whom. Earl Epperson, played No. 1 racket. Because of the green material the Militants were on the little end of the score for most of their matches. As the team consistently lost. Epperson steadily won his contests. His only defeat of the season was at the hands of the present national parks champion, Lou Faquin. Charles Wright and O. D. Bonner will be lost to the team next year but the freshmen under the leadership of Epperson should develop into a champion foursome. 60 Van Hook. Wilson, Warren. McFarland. Dear. Nato, Ellzey.

TRACK With his squad almost double that of last year Coach Van Hook found plenty of material to work with this year though not many experienced trackmen. Because of a late start the Majors didn ' t begin breaking the tape until late in the season. From the first, however, Gordon Worthington, Bert Melton, and Joe Miles began taking top honors in their events. In a triangle meet with Missis- sippi College and Southwestern the Major cindermen captured more first places than their opponents but failed to take the crown. Loss of Herron in the distance events and Beard in the dashes gave Coach Van Hook the task of developing new sprinters who will probably step out ahead next season. 61 FRESHMAN FOOTBALL A harbinger of what is come under the " Greater Millsaps " athletic program was the performance of the Minors on the gridiron. After winning the majority of their games against powerful junior college elevens, the Minors proceeded to give the Mississippi College Papooses one of their first drubbings in years. It is hoped that this was but a taste of the bitter dose that is to be dealt out next year by the varsity to the ancient rivals. Edward Matulich, freshman half-back danced through the opposition in a way that made Coach Gaddy declare that it had been many years since Millsaps had pos- sessed such a talented ball carrier. A strong line, which even out- weighed the varsity, made it possible for Matulich to cash in on his running ability. Steinriede, Harwell. Perette, Jones, L. Cooper, M. Williamson. Carter. Williamson.

WOMEN ' S ATHLETICS In recent years there has been an inci easing interest at Mills aps in women ' s athletics. The program this year has in- cluded intra-murals in which non-fraternity. Barbarian, and sorority girls participated. The need for physical education in colleges has been widely recognized and it is hoped that this department, which has done such excellent work, will be rapidly enlarged. 63 Field, Holloman, Taylor, Rhymes, Walker. Zke PEP MASTERS Under the capable leadership of Fielding " Bo " Holloman, the official welcomers and general en- thusiasm-rousers of the college have led parades up Capitol Street, and the cheering at the ball games in grand style. ' ' Bo " and Jean will be missed next year, but " Teeny " and Kimble will be with us again to cheer the Purple and White to victory. 64 T. M. HARDY, LILLIAN DOUGLAS SWAYZE MASTER MAJOR an MISSMILLSAPS . . In being selected as Master Major and Miss Millsaps, T. M. Hardy and Lillian Douglas Swayze have won the highest honor that can be bestowed by the student body.

THE GREEKS HAD A WORD FOR MELVIN And the word, dear friends, was rushee, Which, being translated, means the person a freshman is for a few precious days when upper-class boys and girls are super-swell to under-class boys and girls and often in the latter case, mushee. Melvin, being a nice kid, and knowing how to take girls for granted and respect senior men Got along fine during those days (except on the occasion when he politely smoked black cigars to the number of ten). Of course he was interested when informed that of one of the groups Columbus was the patron saint. And somewhat confused when a rival group informed him that he would probably hear that Columbus is an alumnus of the first group but to bear in mind that he aint. Then the first group when questioned by Melvin brought out documents to prove it. And he made up his mind to pledge and when his mind was all settled the other bunch made up its collective mind to move it. So they took Melvin into a small back room and introduced him to a couple of other fellows And they talked and talked and talked, saying that after all who was Colum- bus- -America had been discovered by the Vikings already, and that the Columbuses of the world were helpless unless diamonds were sold by the Isabellows. They said now you take Arnold McFee, that was a man for you. He founded our noble fraternity and if you will wear this little piece of plaid around your arm tomorrow, symbolizing that you are pledged to the clan of McFee, we will simply adore you. Then at last they let him go home and he sneaked in and didn ' t turn on the lights because he was afraid that he would wake up the kid brother of a chapter president who had already told everybody that he was going to carry on in the family tradition and make his mark. So rather than hear any more Melvin went to bed in the dark And of all the luck he got in the wrong bed And woke up the kid brother of the chapter president, so he didn ' t get to go to sleep, because along about dawn he had to go Alpha Beta Gamma instead. 82 wmiML Beard, Hudson, Hardy, Selman, Bizzell, Godbold, Triplett, Bain, DeLamotte.

And he discovered further that the good ones generally made not only good grades. But likewise most of the honoraries, and whenever there were parades, they led the parades. And he sat and reasoned thus: " How can it be " That all of these people who make good grades meet lab all afternoons and then on Monday nights they go alternately to French and IRC " And on Tuesday nights they go to glee club and help with the P W and on Wednesday night to pre-med club and on Thursday nights the boys go to frat meetings and the girls have a town-boy date " And on Friday night the preachers meet, and so it goes, and yet they generally look pretty good and as if they hadn ' t sat up particularly late. " It might not be so bad if they only had to go to the meetings because maybe they could sit on the back rows and read a book, " But they can ' t, because look .... " The campus big-shots get elected to offices in these things " And they have to get up programs and ask people to speak and decide what to eat at banquets " And if its a sorority, see a man to mow the house yard and see another man when the first manquits. " And therefore I don ' t see how under the sun " They get it all done. " " I will tell you, " responded an upperclassman who was an ODK, and this is what he respondit: " The more you belong to the less you have to do. and the way it works is this, as I have found it: " Let us say that you are expected to be on the IRC program, help make up the P W. ask a doctor to speak at pre-med club, report on the Christmas party plans for Alpha Beta Gamma, and represent Millsaps at a Rotary meeting and you decide you have therefore too much to do. " Very well. There are two courses to follow. You can come down with a fall or spring or regular (as the time of the year may be) case of flu, " Or you can say, ' I ' m sorry, Ross, I can ' t be on the program: I have too much to do: ' " ' I am sorry, Tom, I can ' t help with the P W, and if you want any heads written, you ' d better get someone else to writum; ' " ' I am sorry. Junior or Earl, I can ' t call the doctor; I have too much to do. ' and so on ad infinitum. " And they all realize that you are supposed to do all these other things and they all say with the wisdom of two dozen Minervas, " ' You are right, and I will get somebody else to do it, ' and thus you are spared a break- down modified by nervous. " So then you can cram for a test if you have to or do whatever you choose, " And what have you to lose! " " You are right, " said Melvin, " You are absolutely right. " And he went out and joined a club that night. And the next night he joined another and he wrote for the paper i one newstory every other week) And one day he tried out for a play and got a walk on part with three words to speak; The play took a little time because twice he had to go and practice and say " Dinner is served " But from his purpose he never swerved. And he worked and worked and worked, apparently, and finally his reward came and he was made happy and his frat brothers even happier Because on tap day he was the only freshman in the long and lionorable history of Mill- saps to be tapped by Omicron Delta Kappier. So here he is a big shot right off the bat--a big shot to start with Which is a pretty good time, I guess to part with Melvin, the pride of Millsaps and Alpha Beta Gamma. — Patricia O ' Brien 104 Edwards, Triplett, Swayze, Godbold.

E F. MAGEE PHYSICIAN AND SURGEON Lamar Life Building Jackson Mississippi COMMENTARY, ' 38- ' 39 BY CARSON HILTON Millsaps lias marched on — its own feet at least, this year. Dr. D. M. Key, Millsaps pi-esident and great man for the past fifteen years, re- signed last year in favor of Dr. M. L. Smith. We enter the new era. Kor those students with ijoor memories I will present a hrief resume of the events of the year which attracted the attention of the student body and that embryo weekly, the Purple and White. The first week of school found the enrollment unbelievably high and doi ' mitory space amazingly scarce. That is, scarce until Mill- saps ' " II. Z. John Pierpont Morgan " conceived the idea of stacking beds six high in five by ten dormitory rooms. This relieved the necessity of demanding colonial concessions from neighboring institutions to take care of our teeming hordes. That was the first record history has of the " appeasement " policy adopted unsuccessfully a few days later by Prime Minister Chamber- lain of Great Britian. This was the same week in which Creek students assiduously avoided the preserves of their " friendly rivals. " Great was the enmity thereof when two groups " invited " the same man to enter their par- lois. Aye, ' twas faintly reminiscent of the ' 60 ' s when brother fought brother. Also, in this same memorable week, several students were raised from the ranks of the insignificant and placed on the Y cabinet, among them being the Vice-president of the student body. The president being left to struggle for recogni- tion in other fields. By October 1st Dean Key had placed twenty eight devotees of the .scholastic art on his Dean ' s list. Thus decreasing chapel attendance by twenty eight. Tryouts were given to candidates for the Millsaps Swingers by Mr. King. Ninety five members were named. Ninety seven pledge pins were distributed by " local Greeks " at end of Rush week. The war scares etc. caused a precipitation of students on the Millsaps National Guard band, swelling its numbers beyond that of the previous year. The P W announced that Mill- saps would at long last have a literary magazine under the guid- ance of a certain Ph. D. and the editorship of a student genius, whose names I will not embarass them by mentioning. Oh well, the announcement was well written; the reporter should be congratu- lated. The Stewed Executive Board began the first in a long series of futile meetings for the school year. But most important of all, a sin- ister and feral beast, the dirt- dauber, made his first appearance of the year in the pages of the P W. He dubbed President Smith " baby, " a la Mrs. Smith.

Echoes of Alma Mater reverberate across the campus as another class leaves academic halls to enrichen a tradition of service already half a century in the making. September . . . and hearts beat faster as a new class is inspired by the Millsaps tradition which now is their own. Breathless Today blends with serene Yesterday to bring forth a brilliant Tomorrow. Drawing upon her heritage of service, Millsaps again prepares to carry on. Things such as these must always live on! To those who know Millsaps and what it stands for, a call goes out to keep their college in the vanguard of educational leadership and service in Mississippi and the South.

Incidently — ever so inci- (lently — there was a ball game that iiiiiht in which Millsaps won a bril- liant moral victory. Millsaps engaged in the usiuil sports throughout the year, but since this is supposed to be pub- licity, I will let the dead past bury our bad scores and immortalize oui ' good ones. Suffice it to say that our athletic department had varied suc- cess — too varied in fact. There is a certain Indian tribe of collegiate heathens whom 1 refrain from men- tioning for obvious I ' easons. Coach Gaddy I ' esigned during the course of the year, and is to be replaced by Coach Hook Stone who is justifial)ly optimistic about the future. We congratulate Coach Gaddy on his brilliant victories while he has been here and wish him luck. He was well liked by those who knew him, which is a credit to any man. The much debated and over- looked school calendar was pul)- lished by that wishful fantasy the SEB. I quote from the Purple White of October the thirteenth; " Politi- cal Front Quiet Tomorrow As Mill- saps Class Elections Loom. " Un- fortunately that is true, quiet as an elephant ' s graveyard — with the con- comitant stench. The winning fra- ternity and sorority members with their misbegotten sense of fair play gloated over their inane victorii s while the defeated powers indig- nantly turned their gaze from the political sour grapes which they had failed to grab, and piously shouted, " Line-up. " This accusation was often impiously denied. The ludicrous motto of this same issue of the P W as brazenly conceived by our sanguine editor was " Beat Those Choctaws. " How- ever, I hope that motto will be a prophecy for next year. The following week Doctor Key cut chapel attendance six more by as many additions to the Dean ' s List. The college announced the larg- est student body eni ' olled in its his- tory — 5G2 students — which rapidly mounted to over 600. Credit to be given here to that benighted P W staff membei- who so effectively buried alive the art which the great poets had at- tached to barren alliteration. May his whole dang illiterated tribe de- crease. W orthy of mention was the lack of tuberculosis on the campus as determined by the State Board of Health tests. Somewhere in here religious emphasis week was observed by the Ministerial League and Y of- ficers. Doctor Smith, soon to become " Smiley, " was inaugurated on Tues- day, November. Sth. An under- standing and praiseworthy faculty abolished compulsory chapel at- tendance on Monday, thus allowing Y. M. C. A. to meet at that time aOHNSONCLEANERS- w Oohngonujillclean " 1804 N. STATE ST.

Millsaps, famous for its banal and boring chapel piograms boasts of a few (infinitely few) good ones this school year, and shows great promise for the future in dis- respect. The Millsaps players lurched, or launched out on a very successful year at playing. About this time the editor of the Bobashela set the first of an indefi- nite series of deadlines for Boba- shela pictures. Millsaps was host to the South- ern Debate Tournament in Decem- bei ' . Professor Ramsey and his de- baters should be given a medal for their excellent work in this field for the school year. All the honors they have won this year in the tournament were of dubiously in- estimable value to the college as publicity. Merry Christmas! Also a Happy New Year! See you after the holi- days. After the holidays. Some optimist decided that they could select six beauties from among the Millsaps coeds, and By George, they did it! It was about this time, January 5, that the P W started carrying copious copy referring to some- thing called " Mortmain " laws, which seem terribly sensational. However, on seizing this oppor- tunity to carry on my diligent search for knowledge. I found that none of the professedly wise whom I questioned about this matter could tell me what they were, though they claimed to understand them. All during this period a success- ful campaign to obtain a post office on the campus was carried on with the apparent purpose of alleviating the necessity of student ' s going to the Grill to get their mail. But for deep and subtle reasons the logical place for it. The Administration Building, remains the logical place for it, and the postoffice, steeped in irony, resides faithfully in the Gym. Another campaign was not so successful. This was the campaign to recognize a certain amount of literacy among Mi llsaps students by placing adequate lights in the library. The paper announced that the new girls dormitory would be dedi- cated March 12th.. but fortunately did not say which March. Exams are permanently behind most seniors and temporarily be- hind under-classmen at the begin- ning of the second semester. Greek letter organizations in- dulged in a bit of initiation to swell their ranks. Doctor Key brings chapel attend- ance down forty-three. By this time most students have become conscious of the improvements made on the campus the previous summer and being continued.

The " have ' s " won another empty victory in the election in April, and the " have-nots " boast of another useless moral voctory. However, non-partisan student objection to such tactics took more concrete form than ever before in this elec- tion. The college announced that next year it will march in a department of psychology and economics. April the 29th was High School day— Oh Boy! Debaters win " Souheastern Crown " and the P W is awarded for the first time first class honors. One thing which we can well be proud of beyond any doubt is the new girls ' dormitory to be opened next school year. Rumor has it that it will be named The David Martin Key Dorm itory. That is not only the most appropriate name for it, but it is the only name for it — a small reward to Doctor Key for his invaluable services to the col- lege and the students. And so to exams for underclass- men and graduation for us sad- hearted seniors who soon face ob- livion or hard work and both are equally undesirable. JACKSON TYPEWRITER COMPANY OMPANV JflCKSOn.
