N Grenada County on August 25, 1858, was born a baby boy, who was destined to exert an influence upon literary, educational, and religious matters that should be felt in every section of the state and in other states as well. This child was given the name, Alger- non Jasper. To the boys of Mississippi College he is now “ Ajax” ; to the state at large he is the eloquent, earnest, and cultured Dr. A ven. After securing such preparation as the country schools of his county afforded, Mr. Aven entered the freshman class of the Uni- versity of Mississippi, from which institution he received the de- gree of A. B. in 1884, and the degree of A. M. in 1889. He was also later a graduate student of the University of Chicago. In 1914 his alma mater worthily bestowed upon him the degree of LL. D. For one year Mr. Aven taught at Cole’s Creek Academy, and for four years was principal of the Boys’ High School at Winona. He was then elected Professor of English in Mississippi College in 1889. Later upon his own request he was transferred to the chair of Latin, the position which he still learnedly fills. Ilis long period of service in Mississippi College has established an unprecedented record in the college circles of this state. Page Four During his thirty-two years in Clinton Dr. Aven has devoted a part of his leisure time to literary work and is the author of many poems and essays of merit. The college publications as well as the religious and secular press of the entire period reveal the impress of his thought. Some of his negro dialect poems have been put into permanent form in the volume entitled “ Negro Wit and Humor”, published in Louisville, Ky., in 1914. Dr. Aven is a popular and effective speaker, whose oratorical talents have won statewide recognition. He was one of the leaders in the Laymen’s Mission- ary Movement, for which cause he spoke in many churches in the state. He was also prominent in the organization of the B. Y. P. U. and was in great demand during the Seventvfive Million Campaign. Teaching Latin or writing poetry, interesting as he finds them both, are only incidental in Dr. Aven’s life. His great work is in the service of his King. It is an excellent thing to be able to “rise and shine” in his Horace class, but the supreme thing in the lives of his students is the wonderful influence of his gentle Christian spirit. Some of the most prominent men in the Baptist work of the South trace to him, as the human instrument, their conversion and in- spiration, and hundreds can tell of the uplift he has given to their Christian lives. Many prominent places in denominational work have naturally fallen to Dr. Aven. For two years he was vice-president of the state B. Y. P. U., for one year editor of the B. Y. P. U. column of the Baptist Record, for two years editor of the Sunday School Department of the same publication, and for five years a member of the state mission board, for which body he served as record- ing secretary. For twenty-seven years he has been chairman of the board of deacons of the Clinton Baptist Church. While principal of the Winona High School Mr. Aven was married to M iss Mary Bailey, whose talent, accomplishments, and Christian character have made her an invaluable partner in her husband’s career. Their only child, Anna Ward, now Mrs. W. M. Whittington of Greenwood, was the first woman to receive a degree from Mississippi College. On Dr. Avon’s becoming associated with the college, Mrs. Aven at once placed her energies along lines that counted most for the welfare of the college and community. The college hoys have always found in her a loyal, helpful friend and her cultured home has been open to them with a gracious cordiality. She organized the first glee club of the college. In 1906 the Hermenian and Philomathean Literary Societies decided to unite their separate libraries and asked Mrs. Aven to become librarian and keep the joint library open two hours each afternoon. The year following the so- cieties donated their library to the college with the understanding that the col- lege should maintain and enlarge the library and employ the librarian. Mrs. Aven was then elected college librarian, in which capacity she has served con- tinuously since. Mrs. Aven has been deeply interested and active in the church work of her community and state. For many years she was the leader of the church choir, and time and again has been president of the local W. M. U. and held other po- sitions of importance in the religious work of Clinton. During the Seventy- five Alii lion campaign she put a substitute in the library and gave much of her time to the organization of the women of the state for the successful conclusion of the campaign. She has the rare distinction of having twice been elected to the presidency of the Woman’s Missionary Union of Mississippi, serving from 1894 to 1897, and from 1917 to the present time. She is also Vice-President of the Southwide organization of our Baptist women. It is impossible within the limits of this sketch to speak adequately of the character and work of Dr. and Mrs. Aven. A few of their many achievements have been named. We shall be content to let these speak for them. WM. II. WEATIIERSBY. . Page Seven m ' 1 Lucius Cowan J.W. Gillon HTER.RRY EOITOR LITER PRY EOlTOR R.

Thou birthplace of God’s freedom for the mind, Thou scene of resurrections of men’s souls, Thou hallowed shrine of heart’s devotion pure, Thou trysting place of those who long to feel The tender pulses of the Heart divine ! From grey foundation stones to sun-crowned peak You stand, memorial of a glorious past ; While the Corinthian colums tall that guard Thy portals wide stand there as monuments Of all the undimmed splendor of thy years, And symbols of our ideals, noble, free. In thee did bloom the Old South’s chivalry Till on thine ivied walls did break in tears The warclouds of a land baptized in blood. And when our Southland staggered, horn anew, You welcomed her brave heroes from the fields Where souls went through the fire of strife and pain. Now in thy whispering echoes soft and low The vows of loves of long ago 1 hear ; While holy anthems sleeping in thy walls For long decades shall wake and blend their strains With the refrain of heav ' n’s exultant song. The voices heard in thee and long since hushed Echo with truth in lands beyond the sea, The gospel heralds of the great birthday Of love and peace and joy upon the earth. And when Time’s ravages have laid thee low Let thy dust be as sacred as thy years, As gold upgathered for the diadems That shall adorn the shining saints of God ! GORDON HURLBUTT. Page Twenty-one John William Provine, Jr. In Memoriam With golden strings my harp is strung, And dulcet strains my harp will give; As Joy and Sorrow mingled live, Mingled are Joy and Sorrow sung. The ways of God we do not know, But Faith sustains the Christian soul, Till Time unroll the mystic scroll, And Light Divine shall inward flow. The morn is calm, no sound is heard, Despair provokes to silent tears, For stalking Plague inspires with fears, And strongest hearts are strangely stirred. September, eighteen ninety-seven, All hearts were sad, no words could tell The gloom that on the village fell, As if Cod ' s wrath were sent from heaven. Mid scenes like these a child was born- A fathers hope, a mother’s joy Were blended in that infant boy, On that resplendent autumn morn. Disease departed, Hope returns, Reaction dissipates the pain; The heart, with courage filled again, To meet its sacred duties yearns. In time the child to manhood grew, And deeds that stir a mortal frame. And guarantee a noble name, Combined he with a purpose true. The college bell, commencement call ! With class assembled on the stage, A man in mind, though boy in age, Behold the Youth beloved by all ! From books to arms. War calls the Youth, And lie regards the call Divine, True manhood knows not to decline A call, when in defense of truth. To country his allegiance sworn, J he youth who truth’s clear vision caught For freedom not for conquest fought, And joyed in hardships bravely borne. Year, nineteen hundred and eighteen, The month, the day, the hour, eleven; “Cease firing” was the order given ; Command obeyed, the world serene! The battles won, no war to wage; The khaki with the epaulette The Soldier dotted, because the debt Of Peace was paid for all the Age. () Love, thy true abiding place Is tender hearts of those who dream; Thou dost unite what separate seem, Dost clothe thy devotees with grace. The worthy Youth a soul sublime To his had knit, by Love’s commands, Joined were their souls, but not their hands. The Shadow veiled him ere the time. God speaks in strange mysterious ways, And calls His own — both young and old— To dwell in realms of bliss untold, Throughout the Age of perfect days. O Youth ! thy foot-steps still I hear, Thy face is still before my eyes, And standing neath the bending skies, Thy voice still greets my listening ear! —A. J. A YEN.

He soon developed a frequent habit of being called to the telephone during Bat Eager’s English class. He entered the V. S. Army in 1918 as a private but, on account of certain personal characteristics, was soon commissioned. After being honorably discharged, he returned to Mississippi College, where he became interested in the “Kanteen Co., Inc.” He attended summer sessions in 1919 and 1920, completing his “campus course” with sj)ecial distinction.

To do Clyde justice would require u volume but space is limited to only a few words. He saw the light of day, for the first time, on the fourth of August, 1X95. This notable event took place among (lie sun-kissed hills of Xeshoba Countv. He went to Clarke Memorial College and completed his course in 11 14. It was while in Newton that he met the lady who latci became his wife. He has been in newspaper work since he graduated at C. M. ( . with such dail. papers as the Memphis Commercial Appeal and the Charleston (S. C.) News and ourier. While in the city of Charleston he attended the famous college of that place. It was while in this city that Clyde answered the call of the Master to proclaim the unsearchable riches of His Truth. He came to us in 19°0 W T e are expecting great things of him.

Whose face do we see above? Dick’s, of course. When did he arrive? In the fall of 1017. He has not been here continually, however, for he spent eight months in Germany and four months in France during his term of service. He has shown his ability as a student by completing his course in three years. Dick has made one of the best records in college and “Dutchie,” realizing his worth as an office man, gave him the place as college Secretary during his senior year. He so conducted his life while here that he demands respect of his fellow students, and every member of the faculty value his judgment as a business man. He has a pleasing disposition and where you see Dick you see his smile. He is a Christian gentleman and he possesses the qualties that spell success. May the world know him as the writer does and his friends will be innumerable. ROBERT GANDY, B. A Sanford, Miss. Philomathean; President Y. M. C.

After spending one year in the “Prep” Department, the subject of this sketch en- tered Mississippi College in the fall of 1916. He was a Shave-Tail in the F. S. Army during the session of ’3 8-T9. Throughout the four years spent here, his work has been of the highest type. The Faculty, recognizing his ability and brilliant prospects, awarded him the Dampeer scholarship in his Junior year. All recognize in “Bob” the best all- round student in our midst. No more popular one is to be found among the boys than he, and his popularity is evidenced among the “fair sex” also. Loved and highly esteemed by’ everyone who makes his acquaintance, “Bob” will be of great service to God and humanity as a minster of the Gospel. Page Twenty -six A. B. BLASS. B. A Hickory, Miss.

We who have known him shall always remember and respect him as a thorough s rodent. piiet. friendly, cheerful, courageous — in short, a Christian of the finest type. Whether as teacher or missionary, lie will inevitably join the ranks of those Alumni, whose lives and work have built us whatever of good reputation Mississippi College may have. A Clinton , Miss.

He was numbered among the Freshmen who entered M. C. in the fall of 1918, and was a member of the S ' . A. T. C. which was here at that time. Shorty completed his “campus course” well when he attended the summer session of 1920, and is one of the few who finish here in three 3 ears. His friendliness and ready smile won for him many friends, who know him, as one who will certainly succeed because of his de- termination, ability, and pleasing manner. The Class of ’21 is proud of the fact that he is one of their number. Page Twenty-seven MAX TEL A. GREER, B. S Louisville, Miss .

Since that time he has been struggling for an education. lie graduated at the Louisville High School in ’17 and entered M. C. the following fall and has been here ever since. “Mantee” has ac- quired the knack of making friends and lias used it freely since coming to this place. No one has more friends than he, both among students and faculty. He is quiet, modest and unassuming, yet firm in his stand for the right; he is one of the best athletes in schooj and also possesses a rare bass voice. A typical, whole-souled college man is the opinion held of him by everyone who knows him. He will likely coach some high school football squad to the state championship next year. WILLTAM E.

Graduating from Clarke Memorial, College in 1914, he engaged in high school work for three years. When Fncle Sam sounded the call, “Our Bill, he got right in,” and served for two years in the TTnited States and overseas, finally pushing on into Germany as Second Lieutenant with the Second Division. Answering the call of the Nazarene, he came to us last year, and completed his course at the close of the first semester this session. He is now in the Louisville Seminary, preparing himself for greater usefulness. Page Twenty-eight Sal I is, Miss. Pres., Vice- Pres., Critic, : Literary Editor “L- M. C. A.

From the finest of that splendid material with which Attala County is so richly blessed, “Jack” came to us in the fall of 1916, a graduate of Kosciusko High School. He left in 1917 to join Uncle Sam’s Navy, but returned in September, 1919, to complete his work. He is a friend of the fellows and a friend of the college, and his record in Mississippi College and her student body is one of influence, — influence always for the right. He is a true Philomathean, and is honored by that Society. He is a splendid mixer, a good thinker, and is always of the same cordial, fine disposition. The Class of ’21 is justly proud that Jack will go down in history as a member of its body. DANIEL MORRISON, B. A Jackson, Miss.

Some of his academic work was done at Jackson the balance being done at Georgia Military Acadamy. Although Bill is not campus very much, all the boys know him and love him. He is a good stud- nial, fine fellow, with lots of talent and ability, and we appreciate that he take his degree with us, the Class of ’21.

Discovered somewhere in the hills of Tippah County so long ago that we have to refer to history for the date, which gives it March 31, 1898. He was a student at Tippah County Agricultural High School, finishing there in 1917. On September the 15th of the same year, he entered Mississippi College, where lie has made a brilliant record. Mack is of the truest steel, manly and generous, loved by all his school and classmates, as well as by the fairest of the fair sex. His latent ability for mastering text books has been manifested all through his college career, and we predict for him a prosperous and useful life. MAJOR CYRUS McDANIEL, B. A Sandersville, Miss.

C. only two years, but his eneigetic and earnest manner has so well impressed his fellow students, that already they lecognize in him one of the outstanding men in college. He goes at a task with a force of enthusiasm that lasts until the job is done. He finished Mississippi Normal Col- lege in 191; , and since then has had several years of experience in teaching. During the World War he “sailed the ocean blue” with Uncle Sams navy. Much of his two years’ navy ' service uas spent with the fleet overseas. Mac will give his professional career to the spreading of education among y’oung Americans. JAMES PORTER NEAL, B. S Quitman , Ik Philoinathean ; Vice-President Y. M. C. A., ’19-’20 ; Member Amer- ican Legion. Porter entered tbe Academy in 1915 and since that time lias been a persistent pui sner of a thorough education. Just as he was completing his Freshman work in 1917. the World War broke out and then for two years he was away serving in the Army. He was commissioned in the Infantry, and later became an aviator. He did his part well and in 1919 returned to finish with the Class of ’21. During the entire college course. Porter has been very busy, but the host of friends which he has, tell of his gentlemanly and courteous conduct at all times. Ilis purpose in life is service and his record in col- lege is an evidence of good possibilities. The Class of ’21 is glad to have such a combi- nation of friendliness, business ability and quiet disposition in one man. Porter expects to spend his life in doing definite Christian work. To do this in the best way lie has neither snared time nor means in equipping himself. Ilis friends, class-mates and fel- JOHN II. NUTT. B. S Enterprise, Miss.

John made his first appearance in Clarke County in the later years of the nine- teenth century. He came to Mississippi College as a Freshman in 1914. Very little time and few opportunities were needed for him to prove his superior ability in the class room and to win friends by his striking personality. Nutt is another member of the class who responded to his country’s call, and for more than a year followed Old Glory in the service of the I’. S. Navy. In need of good teachers Clarke County schools have chosen John as principal for three years. Possibly his best work has been with the Enter- prise High School. His record both in school and out is a worthy one. especially the matrimonial record during his Senior year to Miss Inez Allen. Page Thirty-one CLYDE E. PITTMAN, B. S Tylertown, Miss.

After the war was “fini,” and Clyde had seen all the sights of “Sunny” France, he returned to M. C. in T9. Clyde is held in highest esteem by every member of the Faculty, and especially by the band master and student body. He is one of the best musicians the college has ever sent out, and we predict a bright future for him in this profession. FRIDOLPII A. OLANDER, B. A Jackson, Miss.

The following year he was stricken with paralysis of the lower limbs and went to Chicago, where he was treated for several months, u lthout showing any signs of discouragement, he wisely followed the instructions of his physician and has almost overcome the trouble. Walter is a man from every angle. He is keen and logical in thinking, efficient in all that he undertakes; possesses an air of dignity so becoming to a man of his ability always equal to the occasion. We admire him not only for his superior ability, Jus high ideals, and nobleness of character, but for his unselfish disposition and his will- ingness to help his fellow men. The Faculty and his classmates will ever look to him with pnde as an example of the type of man which should he expected from a Christian mine and Christian college. LOUIE M. T INN IN, B.

Webster county may well he proud of this noble son. After graduating from the Bellefontaine High School, he spent two years in Mississippi College. His college career was interrupted by a few years of teaching, but in 16 he entered M. C. again. He spent two years in tin army, one of which was in France. Fred is one of the choice men oi the class. He is a thorough student, a deep thinker, a pleasant speaker, and a good friend to all. His influence has been felt in every phase of college life. An ardent sup- porter of athletics, a loyal member of his society, coupled with his ready smile and cheerful disposition make him a favorite with both Faculty and students. If a college career is indicative of after life, he is destined to be very successful. THOMAS FRED SPENCER, B. A Walthall , Miss.

John first entered Mississippi College in the fall of 1906, but at the close of his second session, he took up the task of instructing the youth of the land, which he did well. He completed his “campus course” with special distinction in the summers of 1916 and 1917, when he attended the summer sessions. Still determined to complete his edu- cation, John came back to the grand old institution in the fall of 1917, and pursued his studies zealously. He had no peer in greatness of intellect, and lost no opportunity to develop it. Determined, gentle, quiet, unassuming, friendly, zealous — John is a man who will certainly succeed, and it is with pride that the men of the (’lass of ’21 will point to him as their classmate JODIE C.

S., and sought still more of the alluring ale at San Marcos, lexaS’ Baptist Academy. Yearning for the land of his youth, he returned and entered Mississippi College as a sophomore in 1918. He has fought the good fight; he has run the race, and run it well. He now goes forth to greater deeds in the ecclesiastical realm. JOSEPH L. WILSON, B. A Pocahontas, Tenn .

Woodiow is one of the brainiest men in the class and behind his ready smile we know there lies a steadiness of purpose and a determination which can bring a man of his sterling worth nothing but success. He is prominent in every phase of college life, an ardent snppoiter of athletics, a thorough student, an original thinker, a logical debater, Page Thirty-six 1 DAN II. WATERS, B. A Bethany, Miss. Philomathean; Principal, Camp Creek Public School; Supt., Wheeler High School. December 10th is remembered because of two notable events — the admission of Mississippi into the Union, and the advent of Waters into the world. His early days were spent in the counties of Prentiss and Union, where he prepared himself for Mississippi College, entering in the year 1013. For three years, he was out of college, teaching and preaching. In the fall of 1919 he returned, and entered the Junior Class. Waters’ record in college has been excellent, and his example and wise counsel a privilege to follow. He goes next year to the Seminary where lie will better prepare himself for the ministry, in which calling we predict for him a brilliant future. CARLOS A. WATTS, B. S . Columbia, Miss. Philomathean : Distinction. In the spring of 1917 Carlos graduated from the Columbia High School with a good record and entered Mississippi College the following fall. lie is the son of one of Mis- sissippi’s faithful pastors and a former student of Mississippi College. In every respect Carlos has shown himself to be a clean, quiet, courteous gentleman. lie has devoted prac- tically his entire time to study, and especially has he been a splendid student of chem- istry. Someone has aptly said that Watts lived in the laboratory. Chemistry is his major and we are conlident that within a short time lie will be acknowledged in the Chem- ical world. Unfortunately he had to be out of school during the session of ’18-’19, owing to a serious burn, but prompted by his steady, persistent disposition, he returned and is finishing with his class. Very few men finish within three years and the Class of ’21 feels proud of Watts and his record. EUGENE C. FLEMING, 13. A Kosciusko, Miss. Hermenian: President B. Y. P.

For two years his service was with “Pncle Sam,” several months of which was spent in Air Service overseas. Here he again proved his worth by enlisting as a private and rising to a lieutenancy. Although only five feet three inches, he dislikes to be called “Hunt,” and takes delight in giving the title to others. Gene is a man of integrity and has well served the student body in many capacities. LEON VEXARI) YOUNG, B. A Smithdale, Miss. Philomathean ; Historian Freshman Class. ’10; Vice- Pres.

Here’s another Sullivans Hollow emigrant. Harles was born almost twenty-one years ago. He does not delight much in talking of the place of his birth and early child- hood, and so when Sullivan’s Hollow is mentioned in his presence, he soon turns the subject of conversation to a discussion of the advantages of being a printer. He has won many friends among the students by the genuine and pleasant manner with which he greets all. His friends all predict for him success in the commercial world. They say that some day he will occupy a place of prominence among the nation’s giants of commerce. His college career indicates that such shall be the height that he shall attain. He completes the college course in three years. GEORGE EDWARD WILLIAMS, B. S Olive Branch , Miss . Hermenian; Class Historian, T7-’1N-’19; Fellow in Biology, T8-T9; Collegian Staff.

This important event occurred July 28, 1N99. He entered DeSoto County Agricultural High School and graduated in 1917. In the fall of the same year he entered Mississippi College and has become one of the best loved men in college, partially due perhaps, to liis unusual cheerfulness and good nature. “Crip” is a student of no mean ability and will probably make teaching his profession. Cupid has inflicted a serious wound in the vicinity of his heart and we exi cct him to succumb at an early date. To “Crip,” student, gentleman, and good fellow in general, we extend our sincere best wishes. Page Thirty-nine MALCOLM BROOKS, B. A Prescott, Ark. Philoniathean: Associate Editor, Miss.

Malcolm came to Mississippi College as a “freshie” in the fall of 1017, after hav- ing finished high school at Prescott, Ark., where he was born and reared. He immediately became known as one who was quiet and studious, and friendly to all. During the fall of 1018 he suffered the effects of the S. A. T. C. at Hendrix College, which might account for his diminutive stature. However, the following session found him back at M. C. as studious as ever. Malcolm has distinguished himself by completing his course here in three years. We know that this unassuming Arkansan will certainly succeed as a banker if he goes about it with the same earnestness, zeal and determination as characterized his college work. TOM RHEA PHILLIPS, B.

Mr. Phillips entered Mississippi College in 1911, pursued the course leading to a B. A. degree and completed this course in 1915, save a few units. Since that time he has been teaching, and has done his bit in the World War. The Class of ’21 is glad to have him come back and receive his diploma with them. Tom makes a valuable addi- tion to the class, for his work as a student was unexcelled. Ilis pleasing manner linked with his determination make him a valuable asset to any community. lie is a teachei of marked ability, in which profession lie is certain to succeed.

Golden is a native Mississippian. However, he spent a few years in Texas, where he was pastor of rural churches. When he returned to Mississippi, he entered Mississippi College, in the fall of 1917. He is a good student, a real man, i ossesses determination, and is always pleasant. Leo is loved by the Faculty, and is a friend of all the students, lie is also one of the coming Baptist preaches of the state. Since he has been in Missis- sippi College, he has had full time church work, and is pastor of some of the strongest rural churches in the state. We predict for him a bright and promising future and feel that some day he will occupy the strongest pulpits in the state. SOLON L. WALKER, B. A Nexv Hebron , Miss.

He received his early education in Hebron High School, entering M. C. as a Freshie in the fall of !• . After one year at M. C. he chose to teach and was engaged in this profession when the call of his country came. He enlisted in the navy, where he was a most faithful servant for more than two years, being discharged in time for the ’19-’20 session. It was during this session that he definitely heard the call to preach the Gospel, and he leaves us with the promise of a great future in his chosen calling. He is a leader among men, and success will certainly be his. Page Forty-one The Class of ’21— Who Are We? FOREWORD EY, Ye Mighty Seniors! Come and gather around and read the results of the election that the class held during the early part of the session. This election was held, you remember, for the pur- pose of determining the facts published below. Instead of writ- ing a class history, as is customary, the Historian has decided to publish these hitherto unknown facts. Read on and see the re- sults of the election. Blame those who voted, and not the writer, if you are not pleased with the announced results. Results are facts with a history writer. THE HANDSOMEST ? “Freddie” Spencer, “Kosky” Patterson, and “Red” Tinnin ran each other a close race for first place. The count of the ballots showed that the first, second, third and fourth places of honor went to the men in the order named. However, it is surprising that Harles Edwards did not secure a single vote. THE MOST POPULAR? “Bob” Gandy won first place easily because of the fact that he is such a power in student activities. Walter Taylor led bv a good .majority for second place. “Jack” Keith and “Mac” McDaniel tied for third honors. THE MARRIED? There was no trouble in counting the votes here. The following volun- teered and acknowledged the fact publicly: Dan Waters, John Nutt, T. Rhea Phillips, and Clyde Breland. WANTING TO GET MARRIED BADLY? J. C. Wells, “Jimmy” Olander, “Mantee” Greer secured the same num- ber of votes for first place. ’Tis said that J. C. and “Jimmy” agreed to trade votes, but it is now believed that “Jimmy” did not keep faith. “Bill” Hardy won second honor, and “Crip” Williams came in for third. MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED? The first, second, and third places were given respectively to “Dick” Al- britton, “Woodrow” Wilson, and L. V. Young. “Mantee” Greer was too good a sport to vote for himself and so he did not get a single vote. THE RUNT? Ballots were not cast in order to settle this question. “Shorty” Edwards was nominated publicly, and a motion to elect him unanimously was made. He objected so strongly and protestingly that a ruled tape had to settle the question. Malcolm Brooks was the “runtiest” one. “Gene” Fleming came next, while “Shorty” Edwards brought up third place. Each of the three protested in warm terms that he felt just as big as any other member of the class. Page Forty-t wo SENIOR SNAPSHOTS Page Forty-three MOST MODEST ? 4 4 Red’ ’ Tinnin expected first choice, but he got only one vote. Clyde Pitt- man came first and A. B. Blass second. A PERPETUAL SMILE? Simon McBride did not care for the first honor but it was thrust upon him. “Kosy” Patterson and “Lab” Watts tied for second. “Bill” Morrison had a big smile playing from one corner of his mouth to the other throughout the balloting, hut no one was fascinated by it. THE MOST HONEST ? “Fridolph” Andrews easily won first honor, for he deserved it. The plea was made for him that, if he could associate with “Jimmy” Olander in the canteen business for two years and emerge with a clean slate, he surely deserved the highest honor. John Satcher secured second place, but was honest enough to confess that “Crip” Williams, who got third, ought to have his honor. THE BEST ATHLETE? Because of having made all class teams in all major sports “Sunshine” Riser was unanimously chosen to fill first place. The class decided that it had no one eligible for second and third honors. BEST CLASS-SPIRITED? Our president knew all along that he would be “alpha.” Well, “Woodrow” Wilson deserves the honor. “Bill” Hardy won second place, while “Bill” Mor- rison secured “Omega.” MOST IN FAVOR OF CO-EDUCATION? When the votes were counted it was found that every man had a vote, both married and single. Solon Walker made a speech for “Lab” Watts and then voted for himself. MOST FOND OF PUBLIC SPEAKING? In this contest volunteers were called for J. Porter Neal, “Bob” Gandy, Harles Edwards, and Dan Waters all spoke together as one voice. MOST DEEPLY IN LOVE? Malcolm Brooks came first. This is the first thing in which Malcolm has ever secured first honors. “Jack” Keith and “Dick” Albritton won second and third place respectively. “Sunshine” Riser is going to say now that it was no fault of his own that he was left out of the contest. EPITAPH. Pass on, fellows! Blame yourselves for these verdicts. Put your annual away and years in the future you will delight in reading these fine analyses oL‘ voui characters.

Page Forty-five Senior Prophecy HAVE had many dreams, but not many nights ago I had one of the most wonderful dreams of my life. I dreamed that it had fallen my lot to have the great pleasure of touring the entire world, visiting all of the great cities, in one of the most giant aeroplanes ever constructed. I thought my pilot was one of the greatest men that I had ever known and that he had encircled this globe many times and knew all the important places, which he would point out to me as we soared swiftly through the air. The forest, deserts, and cities blended together making a perfect picture, which was continually changing like the scenery of a motion picture machine. We entered a large city, where I noticed the people rushing through the main streets like a mighty wind. I, in my eagerness to find out what all the commotion was about, caught step with the crowds and followed. Before I walked many blocks, I noticed that I was in front of a large theatre and that this was where everybody seemed to be going. 1 secured a ticket and was soon seated with thousands of unfamiliar faces about me. Suddenly, perfect silence reigned throughout the house, the curtain rose, and there on the stage appeared a man playing a violin, making the very atmosphere around us vibrate in sweet melody. T noticed something about the man’s face very familiar and before many minutes, to my sudden surprise I recognized him as one of the Class of ’21. Next in my dream, I thought I was in Washington and noticing in the morning paper where a complicated murder case was to come up before the Supreme Court, I decided to go and hear it. As I entered the court room, I observed a familiar face among the Supreme Judges which I soon recognized as one of the Class of ’21. I have not time and space to tell about all that I saw, but one of the most beautiful pictures I observed on my tour was while we were only a few hundred feet from the ground. It was a ranch composed of thousands of acres of the most inagnificient type. On it could be seen every kind of plant, and green pastures with droves of sheep herded by a shepherd. I asked my pilot the name of the owner, and he replied that it was owned by a man that fin- ished Mississippi College in ’21. Another thing that was worth much to me on this tour was the pleasure of hearing some of the world’s greatest ministers. On one occasion 1 thought that 1 walked into a spacious auditorium crowded with thousands of people, and there in the pulpit stood a man delivering in the most simple words a message of salvation to the lost. So carefully were his simple words chosen and im- pressive was his speech that hundreds heard and confessed their trust in the Page Forty-six Savior. Something about the man’s voice attracted my attention and aftei I hail looked at him a second time, I recognized one of the preachers who finished with the Class of ’21. The last incident of my dream was while I was in Chicago. My pilot had alighted in the city for the purpose of seeing one of his aero friends at the hospital, who recently had been seriously injured. When we arrived at the hospital, we were informed that the man was to have a serious operation in a few minutes, and as we entered the operating room the aviator had just succumbed to the influence of ether. The surgeon was standing by his side with ready in- struments to perform the delicate task which held life in its hands. The opera- tion was completed with wonderful success, and as the great doctor started from the room I noticed that he wore a golden ’21 on his coat. I asked my pilot what it meant and he said that he finished at Mississippi College with the Class of ’21. SENIOR PROPHET.

C. Though we have not quite gotten over it, we are and always have been the leading class of the college. Because of the S. A. T. C., officers were not elected that year until after Christmas. John Latimer was president, and Miss Corinne Winn was sponsor. The president for 1919-20 was Edwin Landrum, with Miss Annie Frank Houston as sponsor. This class has held together in a remarkable way. Though they have never done any dishonorable thing, they have had their share of meetings with the Faculty. However the class has never held these small things against the Faculty, and there seems every in- dication that there will lie a fine hunch to receive diplomas in 1922. The following are the most important dates in our college career so far: Entered Mississippi College October 1, 1918 Expiration of the S. A. T. C December 15, 1918 Ceased to be Freshmen June 7, 1919 Passed to Juniors June 2, 1920 There will be more important dates in the next edition of this work. HISTORIAN.

ROBINSON is a native of Michigan, but received the greater part of his education in New York. He graduated in 1911 from Buffalo High School, where he was very prominent in athletics, as well as literary activities. The follow- ii. g fall ( olgate I niversity received a youngster in the person of Stanley Robinson, who was destined to make one of the best athletic records ever attained at that institution. He possesses four letters in football, four in baseball, and two in track from his Alma Mater, from which he received his diploma in 1915. He was halfback on the famous Colgate football team of 1913, which humbled proud Yale’s gridiron warriors, 16 to 6. That same season, it was Robinson who ran seventy yards through the entire Army eleven, scoring Col- gate s touchdow n in a to 6 contest. He w r as the recipient of possibly the highest honor a gridiron player can receive, being selected in both 13 and 14 as All-American halt -back. And his literary record is scarcelv less brilliant for he was both a scholar and an athlete. The University of Vermont secured him as Director of Athletics for the ses- sion of 1915-1916. In 1917 he coached football at Mississippi A. M. College, when he put out a state championship team. Immediately after the close of the season, he enlisted in the Naval Aviation, in w Rich he served until the signing of the armistice, attaining the rank of Ensign. Just before entering the service, he married Miss Ottilie Johns, a very attractive young lady of Buffalo, N. Y. Returning to Mississippi A. M. in the latter part of 1918, he resumed his duties as coach of football, turning out another state championship team in 1919. In the summer of 1920 he was Physical Director of Southern Y. M. C. A. College at Blue Ridge, N. C. Tn the fall of 1920 Coach Robinson came to Mississippi College as Director of Physical Education, and here is w here our story begins. Although he is pro- ficient in all the major sports, he is primarily a football man. He has that rare quality of judging just how r much a man can stand, and he certainly drives the football squad to the limit. Yet he does it in such a way as to make the men like the game and love him. He trains the players mentally as well as phys- ically. He places confidence on a par with skill, and in doing so, he puts football in the mental as well as the physical realm. His favorite motto is, “A man can do anything if he just wants to bad enough.” Coach has that characteristic, which makes a true leader of men. He does not imitate, but goes ahead and docs things, letting others imitate him. This initiative is shown in everything he undertakes. The splendid system of Physical Training which has been in operation this year is a monument to his efficiency and ability to direct. He has the unusual talent of getting others to do things, and do them w T ell. The management of the system has been altogether in the hands of the students, even to the keeping of Page Seventy-two THE ATHLETIC COUNCIL Prof. I). M. Nelson, Coach S. L. Robinson, Prof. E. L. Ford, R. R. Barnett, G. W. Patterson, M. A. Greer, C. E. Pittman. the records. Mississippi College, we proudly claim, is second to no other South- ern institution, and surpasses the vast majority, so far as this important branch of education is concerned. Coach realizes the importance of the support of the student body in athletics and not the least of his endeavors have been in the direction of putting the student body in the right attitude toward the athletic teams. In this he has been eminently successful. The famous Mississippi College spirit, which before the war was known over the South, and which before the arrival of Coach Robinson had not again reached its ante-bellum status, has attained a high standard during the present year. Although they have been with us only one session, Coach and Mrs. Robin- son have won their way into our hearts, and we are gratified to know that this their first year, will not be their last with us. Page Seventy-three Tis true that the Gold and Blue did not go through the 1920 season with an unbroken chain of victories, but their record shows a campaign of hardfought battles, and we feel quite optimistic over the results. With a few exceptions our team was assembled from the ranks of untrained and untried material, which Coach Robinson welded into a machine that turned back in great style the attacks of the foremost elevens in the country as well as showing an offensive, which, at times, literally swept the opposition off their feet. We lost by reasonable scores to the venerable Mississippi A. M., Tulane, and Alabama. Our first victory was over Ouachita, 6 to 0. The game was played in a sea of mud, which greatly hampered the work of our fast backs. With a number of regulars missing from our squad, we journeyed to Baton Rouge and were defeated by Louisiana State University. But the brilliant offensive displayed by Lee and Hale in this game shall never be forgotten by the thousands who applauded their wonderful feats and cheered them on to greater efforts. In the third quarter, Hale responded with a 65 yard broken- field run through the whole Louisiana eleven for Mississippi’s only touchdown. A week later with the regulars hack in the game, we administered a severe drubbing to Howard at Birmingham, 21 to 7. Millsaps was our next victim and she went down before us to the tune of 60 to 0. Two weeks later we were to have closed the season with Ole Miss, but realizing the inevitable outcome, she cancelled the game. The last game was with Spring Hill College in Mobile, which was one of the hardest fought of the entire season. Spring Hill won by the unusual score of 21 to 20. Besides the letter men, there are thirty others that have been taught the rudiments of football and who are to return next year. From these and the new men that will come in, we believe that a team second to none in the Southland should soon be forthcoming. Page Seventy-four BALL FOOT riAmom OF HONOk CKC.LfcG.

Right Half And it comes to pass that the present Editor has the special privilege of being the fourth man to pen the praises of Griff C. Lee for “L’Allegro.” To tell of all the wonders performed by this star would require unlimited space; therefore, we will only state that he has been four times member and twice captain of Varsity teams at M. C., and with the passing of the present season ends one of the most not- able football careers ever attained at this institution. EDWIN HALE, Captain-Elect .. Left Half “Goat” entered M. C. in the fall of 1915 and immediately jumped into the limelight as a footballer of the first magnitude. After he had played a prominent part in bringing the $tate Championship to M. C. in ’16. he entered the service of Uncle Sam. He returned after an absence of two years and added even a greater lustre to his already brilliant stardom. Speedy, shifty, and elusive, his sensational broken field runs have bewildered his opponents and amazed the stands. He is one of the best ground gainers in Dixie and he scores on ’em all. Volumes and volumes could be written on his stellar performances, but suffice it to say he is one of the great backs of the South, and has been selected as runner-up to Bo McMillan as All-South- ern quarterback. He captains the team next year. R. C. WINDSOR Halt- After starring for two seasons on the M. C. Reserves, Roy became a member of the Varsity squad in his Junior year. On offense he is fast and aggressive, while his defensive work stands out as the most ad- mirable feature of his play. Though not a regular, each time he was sent in to re- lieve the veteran Lee or Hale, he covered himself with glory by showing a fighting spirit that was unsurpassable. He loves the game and has the “stickability” that will win him a regular place in the back- field next season. JAMES F. BAILEY Right End Although “Wop” is a first year man, he is one of the most valuable members of the squad. He smashes interference, pulls down passes and gets down under punts like an old-timer. His perpetual fighting grin and peculiar characteristic of clawing up the earth serves to unnerve his oppo- nents and hence causes them no little worry. He is always anxious and ready for the fray and can be counted on to bear his part of the attack. With a season’s experience, Wop should be a wonder next year. o Page Seventy-six T. J. GULLEY Half “Ponce” is another of our first year men who has shown up exceptionally well. Be- sides being one of the largest men in our backfield, he is also one of the speediest and when once loose in an open field he can’t be overtaken. He is a marvel at the forward passing stunt, and gets a punt off something like 50 yards. With a bit of hard work on his part he should develop into a good broken field runer, which, with his ability as a line smasher, should make M. C. a really great back. We predict great things for him. ROBERT GANDY . .Left End “Bob” stuck around the campus for three years before taking football very seriously. Upon the arival of Coach Rob- inson on the scene, however, our Senior began work in earnest and became a reg- ular at t he left terminal. He plays a hard, steady game and is never discour- aged, even in the face of the greatest odds. He is quickly down under a punt, and makes a good man at the receiving end of a forward pass. We lose Bob through graduation, and we deeply regret he will not be back with us again. J. H. FORTENBERRY Guard This is Jasper’s first year in football, but unless something unforetold happens to prevent him donning the togs again, he says it will not be his last. To say that he is one of the scrappiest players on the team is by no means an exaggeration. He is always in the game, fighting to win and fighting until the last. Jasper was un- used to the fine points of the game this sea- son, but with the experience gained from this year’s work, he should start the sea- son in grand style next fall. W. C. TYLER Quarter “Luke” is our heady little quarter that has so successfully commanded our team up and down the Dixie gridirons. What he might lack in weight is made up in pluck and grit. Besides being able to di- rect a baffling offense, he is capable of putting out a strong defense himself. He is one of the hardest and surest tacklers on the team, and plays defensive half- back position unusually well. He returns and we expect much of him next year. “Alabama” takes care of the tackle on the port side and does so with a great deal of steadiness and consistency. Though not a smashing, tearing player, he is always there with the goods, and his cool, calm head enables him to do the right thing at the right time. He is one of the hardest workers on the team and can be relied upon to do his bit for the victory. He should be one of the mainstays in our 1921 line. T. L. EVERETT Right Guard “Salty” has starred for two seasons on the M. C. Varsity and is yet to view his first football game from the sidelines. A rather unique distinction, will say! But he is a guard of unusual merit. He displays more pep in the line than a cage of wild- cats, and his fierce, pugnacious style makes him a veritable terror to his opponents. No line has ever been able to hold him and he seems to take a delight in smearing up the plays of the opposition behind the line cf scrimmage. He returns next fall, and it wouldn’t surprise us if he doesn’t rate an All-Southern job before he ends his career in the S. I. A. A. W. C. DENMAN Full Emerging from obscurity in the class games during his Freshman year, “Bill” easily handled a berth on Coach Robinson’s eleven this fall, and developed into one of the best line plungers Mississippi has had for some time. He hits the line with a vicious drive, and more than once has gone over for long gains with two or three tacklers hanging on to him. At present, Bill is out of school, but if he is back with us next fall he should be a reg- ular miracle performer. J. F. STUART Tackle, Center “Aunt” is the Hercules of our eleven, tipping the scales around 216. His enorm- ous build, coupled with his unsual speed for a man of his size, makes him a power- ful tackle. Sometimes he is used at center and always acquits himself well in this capacity. He opens up well, and his passing is true. This is “Aunt’s” first year with us, and before he leaves we ex- pect great things from him. Left Tackle R. L. CAYLOR Page Seventy-eight W. G. STUART Right Tackle “Spigoot” demonstrated his football worth last season when he jumped into the shoes of the famous “Parson’ Tate and plaved the tackle position as if he had been brought up on it. This fall he burst forth into a star and is now recognized as our best all-round lineman. He is equally as good on offense as defense, always carry- ing his man out of the play, and throwing the opposing backs for a loss when they try for gains over his tackle. Unfortu- nately for us he has withdrawn from school, and probably will not be back with us again. We shall miss him. W. C. HUDSON Tackle “Pinch” is a husky son of Tippah that has shown up remarkably well for a first year man. Inexperience seems to be his only trouble, but with this year s work at “subbing” for the regulars he should be able to make his massive frame and pow- erful arms count for a great deal next fall. If he continues to improve, we see no rea- son why he shouldn’t become as good a tackle as M. C. ever had. J. W. DICKINS Fullback, End John is a student wherever you take him, and hence he absorbs everything which he thinks might improve his prowess upon the gridiron. His eagerness to enter the fight is always apparent, and when once in the game he puts his whole soul into it. He is a good fullback, and makes an acceptable end. He returns next fall, and we expect him to make us even a still more valuable man than in the past. C. E. STUART Left Guard This unassuming freshman drifted into M. C. this fall and first attracted attention by his huge feet, which resulted in his be- ing dubbed “Foots.” His pedestrial mag- nitudes evidently didn’t interfere with his desire to chase the pigskin, for we next hear of him mixing things up in great style on the gridiron. His willingness and eagerness merited a great deal of consid- eration in Coach Robinson’s eyes and so he was given a chance to prove just how well he liked the game by being placed at left guard on the Varsity squad. He made good from the start and in time estab- lished himself as the regular for that job. He has three years before him, and will make M. C. a good man in the future.

Eighty-six Page Eighty-seven Review of the Base Bdwards Lipser LTHOUGH Mississippi suffered several de- feats this past season, the team represent- ing the Gold and Blue managed to win the majority of the games played, and had the honor of meeting and defeating some of the best teams in the South. We opened the season by taking two from Mississippi Normal in easy fashion, 4 to 0, and 11 to 5. We next vanquished our ancient rivals, Millsaps, in two well-played games, 1 to 0, and 6 to 2. Our paramount achievement of the season was our victory over Illinois by the score of 4 to 0. It was a case of too much Edwards in this game. This giant southpaw whiffed seventeen of the Sucker batsmen, and allowed them only one scratch hit. We suffered a reversal of form at this stage of the season and dropped two to Ole Miss and a double-header to A. M. Our team went well through the remainder of the season, however, and had Ole Miss and A. M. given us return games, we feel confident we could have evened the count. We won six straignt after these games, taking two from Meridian College and four from Clarke Memo- rial. Alabama was our next foe. The score was 2 to 0 in our favor in the eighth inning, when a couple of errors and a hit enabled them to nose us out. 3 to 2. We took a game each from Meridian and Clarke Colleges, then jour- neyed up to Belzoni to take on a splendid aggregation of ball tossers representing that little city in the Delta League. In the first game, the leaguers were completely baffled by the slants, shoots, hops, and all those kinds of things that “Little Joe” Edwards hurled across the plate that day, and we were returned the winners by the score of 2 to 0. The Belzonians were allowed only one hit and fourteen of them were turned back by the strike-out route. They came back strong in the second game, however, and smashed out a 9 to 0 victory over the Collegians. The following day we Lee Dubard Eure Snyder V ball Season of 1920 trimmed the Yazoo City nine 4 to 2, thus winning two of “three games played on the Delta trip. A week later we closed the 1920 season by a 12 to 2 win over Millsaps But the team of 1921 gives promise of being one ot the most successful ever put out at this institution. C °ach Robinson has almost completed his selection and it con- st? " some baseball men of real merit Edwards and T vnns the mainstays of our last year’s pitching stall, are back ’and besides ' these there are numerous ambitious youngsters who are showing quite a bit of class in the art of twirling the “ole pill.” The intield will probably be rnmDosed of Cooper, Parks, Hale, and Gulley. All are good fielders and excellent batters. It is likely that Pit- man Lee and Collier will take care of the outer gardens. This year’s schedule has been most skiltully arranged and includes games with some of the strongest teams in Dixie. Thp ?rhedule is as follows: March 23 and 24 — Southern Military Academy, Campus. March 28 — Millsaps, Campus. March 29 — Millsaps. at Jackson. April i — Millsaps, Campus. April 2 — Millsaps, at Jackson. April 7 — Atlanta Southern League, Campus. April 8 and 9 — Birmingham Southern College, Campus. April 11 and 12 — Miss. A M., Campus. April 15 and 16 — Howard College, Campus. April 22 and 23— L. S. U. at Baton Kouge. April 26 and 27 — Spring Hill College at Mobile. April 28 and 29— Spring Hill College at Hattiesburg. April 30 — Spring Hill College, Campus. May 4 and 5 — L. S. U., at Meridian. May 6 — L. S. U., Campus. May 9 10 11 and 12 — Ole Miss., place undecided. May 13 and 14 — Oglethorpe University, Campus. May 23 — Millsaps, Campus. May 24 — Millsaps, at Jackson. Nolen Parks Lyron King Cooper Page Eighty-nine Tennis r Prospects for a good year in tennis seem apparent at Mississippi this session. D. W. Waters as president and M. A. Greer as Manager have been elected as officers of the club. Enthusiasts of the game have been unusually active since the first weeks of school and each after- noon the courts are filled with splenidd performers getting in readiness for the championship tilts. Greer and Vice, last year’s champs, are back and are demon- strating their usual grace and skill in putting over dazzling serves and driving back smashing returns. However, there is a host of worthy as- pirants who are seeking to relieve this pair of the championship title, and hence everything points to a hotly contested tournament in the spring.

WCLL3 VARSITY DEBATING TEAM GrOLDCft G-ANDy Tk AVI5 GALLON DAVI5 TAILOR, Page One Hundred Seven Mississippi College is proud that today she has within her student body a group of musicians that have acquired for themselves a place among the best college bands, not only of this state, but of the entire South. I he men who compose the band have worked faithfully and with a spirit oi co-operation under their devoted leader in attaining the goal they have reached. It is indeed fortunate the college authorities were able to secure so great a Band- master as Prof. M. Cupero to direct our Band for the present session. To him is due the success, most of the praise and laurels which have showered the band wherever they appeared. Prof. Cupero was born at Naples, Italy. He is the son of the famous Italian tenor who captivated the theater-goers of South America just before the great revolution in Brazil. When only sixteen years of age, he became a member of Creatore’s Band, with whom he circled the globe, appearing in concert before the crowns of Europe and Asia. With them he came to America. Five years later he became director of the renowned British Guards Band of New York. Later, he was solo cornetist in Sousa’s Band. Today he is recog- nized as the best band-master in the South. He loves the South, where most of his useful life has been spent. He was director of the Canton Band, the best band ever organized in the Magnolia State. Prof. Cupero has a wonderful personality. He also has a wonderful love for his work and for the boys with whom he is mostly associated. These quali- ties create in those who know him a sincere respect and deep admiration toward him. He loves Mississippi ( ollege and the things for which she stands, which is to say, he is a cultured Christian gentleman. All sincerely hope this will not be his last year with us. I p to this time the band has appeared in several sections of the state and are contemplating other trips. Among the towns visited are Jackson, Brookhaven, Hattiesburg, Ma gee, Collins, Edwards, Canton, and Port Gibson. Page One Hundred Nine Pane One Hundred Ten Stute Bells There’s a bell in the old bell tower With clear calling tones like a flute, That knells in the first morning hour When it’s time to arise at the “Stute. ” There’s a bell to retire, there’s a bell to attire, There are bells in the dead of night; There are bells that inspire, there are bells that perspire, There are bells that awake with a fright. Not the silvery tones of a wedding bell, Not the welcoming tones of salute — But the woeful knell of that awful bell When it’s time to get up at the “Stute.” Page One Hundred Eleven nfcSBE ey PIANIST HISS PACKED SPONSOU WATERS n R.

S UPPOSE that a stove burns too much coal for the amount of heat that it radiates. The manufacturer hires a man familiar with the principles of combus- tion and heat radiation to make experiments which will indicate desirable changes in design. The stove selected as the most efficient is the result of research. Suppose that you want to make a ruby in a factory — not a mere imitation, but a real ruby, indistinguishable by any chemical or physical test from the natural stone. You begin by analyzing rubies chemically and physically. Then you try to make rubies just as nature did, with the same chemicals and under similar conditions. Your rubies are the result of research — research of a different type from that required to improve the stove. Suppose, as you melted up your chemicals to produce rubies and experimented with high temperatures, you began to wonder how hot the earth must have been millions of years ago when rubies were first crystallized, and what were the forces at play that made this planet what it is. You begin an investigation that leads you far from rubies and causes you to formulate theories to explain how the earth, and, for that matter, how the whole solar system was created. That would be research of a still different type — pioneering into the unknown to satisfy an insatiable curiosity. Research of all three types is conducted in the Laboratories of the General Electric Company. But it is the third type of research — pioneering into the unknown — that means most, in the long run, even though it is undertaken with no practical benefit in view. At the present time, for example, the Research Laboratories of the General Electric Company are exploring matter with X-rays in order to discover not only how the atoms in different substances are arranged but how the atoms themselves are built up. The more you know about a substance, the more you can do with it.. Some day this X-ray work will enable scientists to answer more definitely than they can now the question: Why is iron magnetic? And then the electrical industry will take a great step forward, and more real progress will be made in five years than can be made in a century of experimenting with existing electrical apparatus. You can add wings and stories to an old house. But to build a new house, you must begin with the foundation. Electric General Office Company Schenectady, N. Y.

At Hillman, four blocks from Mississippi College, the young women are brought up with largely the same fine influences that the Mississippi College men have. 1 hey attend the same re- ligious services, the same social entertainments, the same Lyceum attractions, and come in contact with the same great leaders. Hillman offers exceptionally good advantages in Piano, Voice, Expression, Art and Lit- erary work. The fact that the colleges are near together makes it desirable for Mississippi College men to have their sisters at Hillman. Tell the young ladies about Hillman. Have them write for information to M.P.L.
