This life has not been all of dignity nor yet of sheer frivolity. Innum- erable activities have caused the hours of these nine months to flee like magic. A faithful picture of these hours we, your scribes, have tried to paint and herein now present to you. If, when years have moved you from this hour, in peering back through darkening cor- ridors of time you find these pages to illumi- nate and color an erstwhile darkened memory, the charge you gave to us will be fulfilled. Where the trees lift high their branches To the whispering Southern breeze , There Ole SMiss is calling , Calling to our hearts fond memories. g A. and £M., we’re behind you to a man , Whether you win the day or lose or draw; We ' re all here to help you hold that ball oAnd to push you through that line. Ut Fairest of all is our dear Mississippi , Rising in state as the crest of a hill; Staunch as a rock is our dear oAlma £ iater , T ound her so noble our hopes ever live. When , in our future , our hearts may be yearning , For the bright scenes of our dear college youth. C 3ack to thy portals our memories turning , Clear gleams thy beacon of virtue and truth. £M. C- we hail thee , our dear Mississippi, Queen of our hearts, no foe shall alarm; Faithful and loyal thy children will ever Cherish thy mem’ry, acknowledge thy charm. Hail to thee, oh, hail to thee, £ Mississippi State, so fair! Thy loyal daughters sing to thee Our calling beyond compare. oAlma £Mater, dear old £Millsaps s Loyal sons are we. Our fond hearts are thine alone, oAnd evermore will be. Book I . .

Thrice the calendar has changed its face, Beckoning to us, the class of ’ 32 . You, M. C., have crept into our very soul, And stamped yourself on every heart. Y ou shared alike our joys and woes; You helped each one to bear his part. All our path is not strewn with roses, At times there had to be shadows; There were days without sunshine ' s glories, But bluebirds never left our windows. rr Then let your Alma Mater guide you 9 Till your labor here is through. Strive each day to do your part, You, Juniors of Nineteen thirty-two .” — Lloyd Simmons, ’ 32 . 58 Officers Frank Rugg President Davis Love Vice-President Pete Dennis ....

J. Bishop, Tackle , Captain Captain Bishop finished his three years on the varsity with a distinction that few Choctaws have ever attained. He was mentioned for the All-American by numerous sports writers and many coaches. He was an able leader and an inspiration to all those who played with him. We owe much of our past season’s success to our captain. John Abernathy, Quarterback “Ah” was as brainy a quarter as we have ever had on our squad. His head-work as well as his marked punting ability won for us many games. He was half of that lateral-pass combination that stumped so many of our rivals. He, too, will be very much missed when we face our foes next season. Otto Reno, End “Tobe” was one of the four Sophomores to make letters this season. It was he who made possible that blocked punt in the Millsaps game, when he stopped “Shep’s” surprise punt on the one-yard line. Otto, who is big and husky, will be with us for two more seasons and great things are expected of him. On the goal-line in the A . and M. game. 78 Jimmie Sullivan, Halfback, Captain-elect “Jimmie” ended a successful season by being elected captain of the 1931 squad. His merry little laugh which came with victory or defeat, and even with injury, besides keeping the team in an optimistic spirit, won for him many friends. “Jimmie” is one of the leaders on the campus and is expected to carry that leadership onto the field with him. Claude Lackey, Tackle “Hus” was another of last season’s promising Freshmen. He handled the center position very capably for the Freshmen but was shifted to a tackle post by Coach Robinson. There he seemed very much at home and turned in a season of very good playing. He should prove a tower of strength in his last two years of playing. James Taylor, End “Jimmie” played with a vim and determination that won for him a position on the varsity despite the fact that he had never played before he came to Mississippi College. “Jimmie” is only a Junior and will be back with us for one more season, which should be very bright for him. Choctaw line stops the Maroons. 79 Football Men Price Harlan, Halfback, Most valuable “Goat” developed into that dashing back that everyone who saw him sub for Dick Hitt prophesied he would. Not only did his teammates think him the most valuable to the team, but many of his opponents. Fans at Colgate complimented him very much on his playing. His specialty was that lateral pass to, or from, “Ab”. “Goat” has won many friends and the respect of all his associates. We wish him the success in life that he had in football. Nevell McRee, Fullback “Mac”, serving his first year on the varsity, proved to be a tower of strength both on offense and on defense. His ripping tactics were equaled only by his ferocious tackling. When a few yards were needed he usually gained them. " Mac” will be with us for two more years and he is expected to continue his good work as a fullback. Paul Young, Tackle “A rolling stone gathers no moss”, but Paul proved to be the exception to this oft-quoted proverb. He played end his first year on the varsity, his second year he was shifted to guard, but this year he was changed to a tackle post, where he finished his four years of football. Paul will be missed very much next season. Abernathy through the Maroon line for eight yards . 80 Thomas Safley, Center Playing his first season on the first string, “Tom” handled the center post like a veteran. He was light for the position hut made up for his lack of weight with an unconquerable fighting spirit and a determination to win that was seldom slackened. Great things are expected of him next year as he wears the Blue and Gold for the last time. Nick Duncan, Guard Nick was one of the few letter men that we had to build this season’s team around, and he proved to be a very sound neucleus. Nick’s fight and cool-headiness was an inspiration and example to all of the line. He played his full three years at guard and his leaving next year will leave a gap that will be hard to fill. Wilroy Sheppard, Quarterback “Shep”, wearing the colors of the Choctaw for the last time, turned in some very neat per- formances, not only in the calling of signals but also in the carrying of the ball. Sheppard could punt and pass with accuracy when called upon to serve in either of these capacities. His lack of weight was made up in his ability to pilot the team. The Mexicans fail to gain. 81 Wilburn Furniss, Halfback “Passo” finished a brilliant season by running rings around our friends, the Majors. Furniss is just a Junior, and many things are expected from him next season. He is not just a runner, but a punter of rare ability. His punting was a feature of the Birmingham-Southern game. Leon Burns, Guard “Bulldog” lived up to his name in filling his position at guard. He not only “dug in” and held his portion of the line on defense, but he pulled out on offense, and ran interference that is seldom equalled by a back. His hard blocking and fierce tackling were features of his playing. Robert Slay, Halfback “Bob” staged a comeback that few are able to. After being out a whole season with a broken ankle, he returned to the squad, and filled his position at right half very efficiently. “Bob” is a Senior, and his leaving will be greatly felt when the squad meets in September for their first practice next year. Furniss gains eight yards through the Major line. % x f ■ ' 82 James Luter, End Luter played last season as a reserve end, where he learned much that he put into practice this season. He blocked hard on offense, and tackled hard on defense. Very few yards were made around his end by the opponents. Robert Hederman, Center “Bob” played his first two years of varsity ball as a reserve center. This year he came forward to gather the fruits of his labor. “Bob” handled the center post skillfully, and played with spirit and fight. Garnet Sweatt, End Garnet served as a tackle last season for the Freshmen. This year, his first on the varsity, he was shifted to end, where he seemed very much at home. He blocked hard and tackled harder. Much is expected of him next season. Rodney Berry, Manager Rodney filled this job with an ability that few have ever shown. His every thought was for the team, and he served them well. Rodney was willing to help at all times, and did this with a spirit that kept the squad in a winning humor. Shepherd quick-kicks in the Millsaps game . 83 FOOTBALL Resume of the Season The Choctaws got off to a good start on September 27, by defeating the Louisiana College eleven, 33 to 14, in a game that was featured by many long runs. The next week they humbled the mighty A. M. Bulldogs by the score of 13 to 12, in the hardest fought game of the early season. Harlan’s touchdown from a received punt was the feature of this game. On October n, the Choctaws played against one of their former mentors, George M. Bohler. Bohler’s Bulldogs were no match for the mighty Choctaw machine which rolled over them for 39 points to their none. On October 26, the Choctaws suffered the first defeat of the season at the hands of the Moccasins of Chattanooga University. The Moccasins took the upper hand when the officials could not agree and held it for a 24 to 7 win. The next week-end the Choctaws visited Colgate University in Hamilton, and received their second and last defeat by the score of 34 to o. The Choctaws hit their winning streak again on November 8, when they defeated the University of Mexico, in the first international tilt in Mississippi, to the tune of 40 to o. The following week the Panthers of Birmingham-Southern bowed to the mighty Choctaws in one of the season’s thrillers. The field was muddy for Homecoming, but the Choctaws did not seem to mind their own mud. The only score of this game was the blocked punt which Reno recovered for a touchdown. Furniss’ excellent punting kept the Panthers at bay during the entire fray. Thanksgiving found the Choctaws ready for the Majors. Smarting from last season’s defeat, the Choctaws fought to the finish, and came out winners, though the Majors scored first. Reno grounded a punt, from Shepherd, that paved the way for the blocking of Hale’s punt, which was done by Safley. The Choctaws lose through graduation: Captain Bishop, Price Harlan, Robert Slay, John Abernathy, Wilroy Sheppard, Paul Young, Robert Hederman, and Nick Duncan. A, Us 84 HI I Basketball Men Nick Duncan, Guard, Captain Nick, who for two years was on the All-S. I. A. A. basketball team, was kept out of the tournament this year by a sprained ankle, which he received in the last game of the Millsaps series. There is no doubt in the minds of most of us that he would have made the team again this year had it not been for the sprained ankle. Nick was one of the most capable men that have ever been on the Choctaw floor, and he will he very much missed next winter. Thomas Bennett, Forward “Hoover” has been placed on the All-S. I. A. A. team by sports writers and coaches for the last two years, receiving an almost unanimous vote for the position this year, despite the fact that he played in only two games. “Hoover” was the coolest player on the floor, and very seldom blew up, even though we were far behind at times. He was a derid shot for the basket and his floor work was unequalled by any who played with or against him. Frank Branch, Foriuard Frank came to the front this year after having had a rather bad season last year. He seemed to have gotten over his operation more this season and showed lots of that form that won for him a place on the Mythical S. I. A. A. Five three years ago. Frank’s eye for the basket was an exceptionally good one and at times he was in such good form that he could not miss. Several times he scored as much as the rest of the team combined. Rodney Berry, Forward “Rod” was the fourth Senior to make his letter this season and he was the fourth, not because he was not so very good, but because he was smaller of stature than the others and couldn’t com- pete with them. He was fast on the floor and had an accurate eye for the basket. “Rod” was as good a man as we had on defense and a fast breaker on offense. James Taylor, Forward “Jimmie” was another of small stature, but that was not such a great handicap to him. He was fighting every minute that he was in the game and he made that fight count for something. He was good on defense and fast on offense. These qualities are the reason that he bore the brunt of the substitution at forward. “Jimmie” will be with us another season and great things are expected of him as he dons the Blue and Gold for the last time. 86 Basketball Men George Gill, Captain-elect “Monroe”, playing his second year on the varsity, showed that he was a valuable man at center. Although he was a light man for his height, he could fight as long and as hard as the rest of the men. He was a good jumper and was seldom out jumped. His hard, clean playing won for him the position of captain of the 1932 squad. George was fast on offense and often got dow T n under the opponent’s basket for an open shot. Many great things are expected of George next season. . Otto Reno, Guard Reno is one of the two Sophomores to make letters in basketball and it was well earned. He was a tower of strength under the goal. It was largely to his and “Stute” Allen’s work that no opponent got more than one shot at the goal. He was right there all the time and would take the ball off the backboard and throw ' it out with an ability that few T veterans can equal. Reno will be back two more years and he is expected to go from the second to the first AI 1 -S. I. A. A. team next season. , James Allen, Guard “Stute” is a long, lanky Sophomore, but he can deliver the goods. Though not as hardy as Reno, he made a good running mate for him. He was as good as we had on long shots and when he shot one it was pretty sure to hit the basket. He bore the brunt of the substitution at guard and worked like a veteran when he was used for Duncan during the season, and especially during the Tournament. He says no one is going to outdo him next year nor the next. Wilburn Furniss, Forward “Passo” was a consistent player and could be counted on to do his share of the work all the time. He was not only good at forward, but was a good guard. He was used at guard when necessity demanded it and showed that he was a good utility man. He was fast on offense and had a good eye for the basket. “Passo” was a cool player and a smooth floor man, contributing his part to the success of the team when he had the chance. He is another one of our Juniors and great things are expected of him next year. James McLendon, Manager “Jimmie” was a very efficient manager, keeping the boys in as good shape as possible and seeing that the equipment was in the best of shape. The success of no basketball team is ex- clusive of the part the manager plays, and so it has been with our team. He has the good wishes of all of us in handling the problems of life, and may he manage them as well as he has our team. S 7 I Basketball Season The Choctaws had one of the most successful seasons that they have ever had, considering the season as a whole. Of course they would have liked to win the S. I. A. A. Tournament, but despite the fact that they didn’t, they still think they had a very successful season, as do many of their fans. The Choctaws won thirteen out of twenty-four games played, losing their last game by one point in the quarter-finals of the Tournament. The Season ' s Results are: Choctaws 31 Choctaws 31 Choctaws 30 Choctaws 41 Choctaws 52 Choctaws 57 Choctaws 34 Choctaws 40 Choctaws 54 Choctaws 35 Choctaws 28 Choctaws 35 Choctaws 36 Choctaws 29 Choctaws 33 Choctaws 3 3 Choctaws 32 Choctaws 33 Choctaws 61 Choctaws 43 Choctaws 38 Choctaws 27 Choctaws 62 Choctaws 38 All Stars 40 Brown Paper Mill 34 Brown Paper Mill 34 State Teachers’ College 15 State Teachers’ College 31 Arkansas State Teachers’ College ... 32 Louisiana State University 46 Tulane 49 Tulane 41 Loyola 33 Southwestern Louisiana 26 Louisiana College 36 Louisiana Normal 44 Louisiana Tech 36 Birmingham-Southern 37 Birmingham-Southern 36 Millsaps 30 Millsaps 25 Louisiana Tech 30 Millsaps 38 Millsaps 29 Millsaps 22 Stetson • • 37 Louisiana Normal 39 88 I r m 9 Cui £? r @ lay home in FIELD The middle of February caught the staff of pitchers and catchers working hard to get into the best of shape for the coming season. Farrell, the veteran catcher, and John All- good, a Sophomore, had their hands full. They had to work McCrorey, a Senior, and Hahn, a Junior, the only two vet- erans in the camp besides two Sophomores, Bigham and Longmire. Gill, the third Sophomore to report for pitching duty, didn’t report until the rest of the squad because he was busy with basketball. March ist found the whole squad limbering up their arms and getting in shape pretty rapidly. Although the team was rather slow at the beginning of the season, it improved as the season progressed and the Choctaws finished the season with a little better than a .500 percentage, winning ten and losing nine games. Two catchers, Furniss and Myers; one pitcher, Branch; five infielders, Luter, Daily, Taylor, Walker, and Claiborne; and five outfielders, Miller, Harlan, Herrmann, Sheppard, and Spencer, rounded out the list of Choctaws aspiring for positions on the baseball team. On March 21st and 22nd the first games of the season were played with S. T. C. These two games were easily won by large scores. Hahn and Gill bore the brunt of these two games. The following week the Choctaws made their invasion into Louisiana, meeting the Louisiana Tech and Cen- 90 tenary. This invasion was not so successful for the Chocs. They lost one game to L. P. I. by the score of 3 to 2, and two games to Centenary by close margins. On their return from Louisiana the Blue and Gold met Mississippi A. and M. and Millsaps on their home field twice each, winning all four games. The next week saw the Choctaws bow to their age- old enemies, the Millsaps Majors for one game and win the second game from them. Our next games were with the A. and M. Bulldogs at Starkville which were both won by the bulldogs- by a very slight margin. Then the boys returned home for a few days’ rest before starting on their last trip. On the second and third of May they met the Spring Hill nine on their home lot. Both of the e games proved too much for the Choctaws. They lost these games by a larger margin than they did any other of the season. On their return home they met the Teachers from S. T. C. in two games. These were easily won and the Choctaws returned home having won two and lost two games on the trip. The last two games, played on the ninth and tenth of May, were split. Louisiana Tech won the first and the Choctaws won the last. Taken all in all, the season was a very successful one. During the season Jimmie Taylor was shifted to catch and Harlan was moved to second base. Other than these two . . - - - 7 . 73 7 MANAGER, 91 shifts the team played the whole season as they started. The bat of our captain, Leland Walker, was the most consistent. Taylor, Luter, Clay- borne, and Sheppard were consistent hitters, with much help coming from Miller and Harlan at times when hits were most needed. The team was above the average as a fielding team, making very few errors during the entire season. The pitching laurels go to Hahn and Gill. They finished the season well up in the list of pitchers. McCrorey, although not showing the form that was expected of him turned in some neat performances. The Choctaws lose through graduation Walker, Herrman, Mc- Crorey, and Farrell. These places are expected to be filled by some very promising material which is coming up from the Freshman Class. With the new material the Choctaws are looking forward to a very successful season in 1931. The season’s results are as follows: S. T. C . . . 6-6-03 ; Choctaws . . . L. P. I 2-9-4 Centenary . . . 5-2 A. M . . . 2-2-4S ; Choctaws . . . Spring Hill . Millsaps .... .... 10-9-9-9 92 I % fy ? e3 Puc t££ DASHES Resume of the Season The 1930 Choctaw cindermen had a wonderful track season, meeting some of the strongest competition in the South during the season. A total of four good meets com- pleted the 1930 schedule, which included meets with L. S. U., Baton Rouge, triangle meet at Jackson, Tennessee, be- tween Union University, Southwestern of Memphis, and M. C., Louisiana College at Alexandria, and third dis- trict meet also at Alexandria. The first meet of the season was with the strong Louisiana State University Tigers, S. I. C. track and field champs. This meet was rather one sided, L. S. U. taking the big end at the meet. Jones and White were oustand- ing in this meet. Jones in high jump, and White in two miles. The other members of the team showed some good stuff for such an early season meet. On April 12, at Jackson, Tenn., the Choctaws cam? back with a strong determination to win this meet. They walked off with 6o points in this triangle meet, Union taking 32 2 3 points, and Southwestern, of Memphis, 32 1 3. The Choctaws took eight first places out of a possible fourteen. Holmes was high scorer in this meet with two first places and relay, followed closely by Aber- nathy who took two first places. R. Jones, Thomas, John- 94 son, and Montague counted one first place each. White came next with a second place in two miles, and a third in the mile. Other men who scored in this meet were Puckett, C. Jones, Flowers, Butler, Murphree, and Hester. The third meet was a dual meet at Alexandria, La., with Louisiana College, which the Choctaws won with a 69 to 43 decision. In this meet the Choctaws took nine out of fourteen first places. Holmes of M. C. took high point honors of the day by winning the quarter mile run and the broad jump for ten points. Captain Montague turned in first in the 100-yard dash, and a second in the 220 for eight points. Abernathy scored eight points — first in discus throw, and second in shot put. Ah showed his ability in this meet. Butler, a Sophomore, captured eight points, including a first in the mile, and a second in the half mile. White turned in first in two miles; Thomas first in the half mile. Jones easily captured high jump honors. Flowers nosed out Montague for first in the 220. Adams, another Sophomore, turned in two second places in high and low hurdles, for a total of six points. Puckett added with second in the 440, and Hester with a second place in the pole vault. 95 On May 3rd, at Alexandria, La., the team went to the third S. I. A. A. district meet, where competition was strong. The Choctaws took third place in this meet. Johnson turned in an outstanding ten minute two mile with Nappie White, his running mate, coming in third. Youngblood and Butler scored second and third in a nice mile run. Hester captured third in pole vault. Abernathy took third in the shot put. Holmes and Puckett got third and fourth places in 440 which was run in 51 seconds. High jump went to R. Jones of M. C. Bishop scored third in discus. Thomas took third in the half-mile. Holmes, Puckett, Moorehead, and Flowers won the relay in a sensational fashion. The most outstanding event of the year was when L. Johnson ran the best two miles of any runner of the south at S. I. A. A. track meet at Clinton, South Carolina. He was the only representative M. C. had. He only lacked two-tenths of a second of equalling the old record of 9 minutes and 49.8 seconds. By graduation, the Choctaw team lost some valuable men in Captain Montague, Flowers, Murphree, and Hester. These men, though most valuable men, will be replaced by men in the under classes next year. Much is expected of the track team for the season of 1931. 96 Cross-Country Team The cross-country season started off with more and better material than any other former Choctaw squad can boast of having. Under the. efficient leadership of Captain Nappie White, otherwise known as “Guts,” the men were easily whipped into shape. Nappie, besides being one of the fastest harriers, was truly the outstanding man for captain, as he had the respect of his running mates and was naturally a leader. Nappie was such a good leader that Coach Blaine left most of the training of the team in his hands. Besides White, in Johnson, the South’s fastest two-miler, we had a dependable man. He was one you could depend on for points and an excellent race. Another all- varsity man, a regular from last season’s team, was Puckett, who has shown as much fight and ability as any Choctaw harrier in history. Holmes and Thomas are middle distance men who proved very emphatically that they, too, could run distance with splendid form and time. George Gill has made one of the best cross-country men in the shortest period of any man we can boast of having. Owen Gregory came through for his best performance this season. The new material for this season was unusually good. The team discovered that Dunaway and Montague were very valuable men. We had several intramural meets during the season, but on account of financial de- pression, and a desire of the team to have an additional Spring track meet, we closed the season without an intercollegiate meet. We are all assured our efforts were not in vain this season, because cross-country is one of the biggest assets in training for Spring track. 98 Samuel B. Morris Captain i Kathryn Bowen Sponsor f I TENNIS TEAM Tennis In the past few years tennis at Mississippi College has been enjoying a place of rising importance. For a long time it was customary to play the usual matches with Millsaps and possibly one or two other teams. A larger schedule is being made every year, and this year a schedule is being planned which includes the foremost colleges of Southern tennis circles. Last year the team enjoyed a successful season, winning a majority of its S. I. A. A. matches, and making a good showing against its S. I. C. opponents. A trip was made which included the Columbus Tennis Club, A. M., University of Alabama, Birmingham-Southern, Union University, and Southwestern of Memphis. This year arrangements have been completed for matches with Tulane, Loyola of New Orleans, University of Alabama, Birmingham-Southern, University of Chattanooga, with arrangements not yet complete for matches with Union, South- western, and L. S. U., A. M., University of Alabama, probably Southwestern, and the usual matches with Millsaps will be played on the local courts, which have been resurfaced and will be in excellent shape for the coming season. The team this year, in charge of Prof. Tully McRea, a former Choctaw net star, is headed by the diminutive but highly effective Captain Bowen Morris, whom his opponents will remember by his flashing forehand drives, and Manager Hunter, famous for his fighting to the last point. Other members of the team are Eugene Patterson, Will J. Patterson, and A. C. Watkins. The members of the team, except Hunter, are all from Clinton, and they have played together for three years. We look for many matches in the win column this year. ioo FRESHMAN FOOTBALL SQUAD Freshman Football The Freshman squad, although not as large as some of the ones we have had before, had a very successful season, winning three out of five games. The first game with Pike Junior College proved to be too hard for the baby Chocs. They dropped this game by the score of seven to nothing. The next game the Papooses made their first trip out of the state, playing the first year men of Louisiana Tech, which they won, nineteen to nothing. The next game was a very easy one for the ’Pooses. They beat the Clarke eleven, forty-two to seven. The next game was the closest of the Papoose season, in which the Raymond Junior College won by two points. 1 his was by far the best game of the season. This year the Papooses succeeded in doing what the Fresh- man teams from Mississippi College have been trying to do for the last three years: beat the Minors. The Papoose machine worked better in this game than it did in any other game of the season. They beat the Minors, twenty to nothing. The Freshmen who made numerals are: Bruce Hitt, Otho Cross, Henry Walker, Fuller, Robert Johnson, R. W. Smith, Robert Davis, Tom Stewart, Robert Jackson, Bree Johnson, Lawrence Lovell, H. L. Goolsby, Dewey Myers, “Treetop” Murphree, and Manager Reynolds. 102 FRESHMAN BASKETBALL SQUAD Freshman Basketball The Papooses have finished one of the most successful seasons ever had by a Papoose basketball team. They won ten out of eleven games played this season. The only team that beat them was the strong Co-Lin Junior College quintet. A wealth of material will go up from this Freshman team. Those who made numerals are: Cross, Simpson, Haley, E. Myers, Jackson, Landrum, Walker, D. Myers, and Lyle, manager.

This bunch proved that looks are not all that counts toward making a ball team. Though they were pretty ragged during their first games, they developed into a fast-fielding, hard-hitting team. The majority of the men were small, but they could cover the ground and hit, too. The Papooses won five out of nine games, defeat- ing Raymond once and Millsaps four times. They lost to Raymond and Wesson one game each, and to Pike County twice. Much good material should go up to the varsity, including Dennis, Correro, Jor- dan, Lane, Stowers, Jones, Wilkins, Cockerham, and others. M. C. Freshmen M. C. Freshmen M. C. Freshmen M. C.

During this period thousands of men have left its portals imbued with knowledge and ideals. There are landmarks on the campus and in the college which are symbolic of the idealistic traditions of the school and the purposes for which it was founded. Around these landmarks are centered the memories of youth, youth full of ambitions and eager for life. It is no uncommon sight to see old men and young men who have been graduated by the school return to the campus and fondly revel in the memories of the past. I have seen them stand in the chapel building and gaze intently upon the benches and the platform as if trying to call to mind some half-forgotten nam. or experience. That building to all Mississippi College men is the essence of Mississippi College tradition. Those walls have heard the voices of some of the nation’s most outstanding statesmen and the prayers of some of the country’s most exemplary churchmen. Because it is what it is, the chapel building is a cherished object to every graduate of the school. But there are personalities on the campus who have been prominent in its activities for many years. These men have permeated Mississippi’s youth with lofty ambitions and noble ideals — by both the deeds and lives which they have done and lived. They have given the students something far more than mere knowledge; the impressions which they have given were not taken from a book; they have shown boys how to become men in the altruistic sense of the word. “Ajax” Dr. Aven, a name which means many things to every one who has ever come in contact with this revered personality and character. The classicist, the poet, the orator, the humanist, the philosopher, and the Southern gentleman. All of these characterize in a well- 124 founded manner this remarkable teacher of men. Dr. Aven was graduated from the University of Mississippi in 1884; he received his M.A. degree in 1889 and his LL.D. degree in 1914. Since 1889 Dr. Aven has been a professor in Mississippi College. He has devoted much time and attention to literary work. As essayist, historian, and poet, his writings have taken high rank. He has been much in demand during these years as a speaker. In his public, official, and private life he has exemplified to the world the highest type of Christian manhood and citizenship. During his forty-two years as a teacher of the classic languages, he has not failed to give to his students that realization that humanity is good, that life is beautiful, and that the ideals of Christendom are the only ideals for the soul of man. The extent and value of such a life cannot be expressed in words, but they can be recognized as being of everlasting value. It is such a recognition which causes this man’s name to stir a responsive chord in the soul of every graduate. “Zeus” — the scholar, the dean who uses his lips so queerly after each word, the man who speaks seldom, but says a great deal, the instructor of that ever-feared and awe-inspiring Greek. Professor Latimer was graduated from Mississippi College with both B.A. and B.S. degrees in 1897. He received his M.A. degree in 1898. He has been professor in Mississippi College since 1897. During this time he has been given the material honors which come as the result of a useful work. He has been chairman of the Board for Junior Colleges of the state since that board’s organization; he has been given civic positions of trust — but over and beyond all of these recognitions is that place which he holds in the memories of the men who have known the man. Some men possess a dazzling personality that attracts the attention of the crowd; others are gifted with a penetrating ability of mind and a sterling quality of character that impress more slowly, but impress the deeper because of the revelation. To this latter type does Professor Latimer belong. When a man is able to understand another, he is in a position to be that man’s friend. Due to his ability to understand his students, Professor Latimer is the students’ friend, the primary quality of a good teacher. In this teacher is found a sage, a man, a Christian idealist, and a friend. “Dutchie’’ — the man who plays square, the executive who can see both sides of a question, the counselor, the user of a certain type conversation in chapel exercises that is called bull (but it has its punch, if antagonized), the scientist, the orator, and the administrator. To a great degree Mississippi College owes what it is today to this man’s ability as an administrator and organizer. For twenty years he has been its president. During this time all of the present buildings on the campus, with the exception of Jennings Hall and the chapel, were built; the sch ool was put on the accredited list; the campus itself was beautified; the college roll was more than doubled, and the school was made one of the best of its type in the South. He has given his very best to the school since he first took up his work in 1893 as a professor here. Possessing a doctor’s degree from Goettingen University, Germany, as well as an LL.D. degree from the University of Mississippi, Dr. Provine has a permanent rank among the educators of the nation; not so much on account of the degrees, but because of the expert and profound knowledge which he has attained. Dr. Provine has for several years been president of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association, and political honor has been given to him also. It is no wonder, in the light of these facts, that our “Dutchie” holds a place of permanent respect and admiration in our hearts. In “Dutchie” is found a man who has a creed of life; and, what is more, he lives it. There are others, “Tite,” for example, who mean pleasant, tender memories to Mississippi College men; but these three professors may well be called the Grand Triumvirate of Missis- sippi College tradition because their services and their lives have stood for those ideals for which the school was founded.

MASONIC CLUB 153 Vvv FOREWORD OU who have read thus far in this book are to be congratulated for having a world of patience. Now here is a tip. If you have an ingrowing toenail, a sense of humor, or if you are in love, STOP! But nobody ever listens to an editor or to a professor. If you do not like the contents, we are sorry. Send your annual to Tom Ashley and he will refund your money. If you get your feelings hurt, we are sorry, too. Write to the editor about it. He’ll apologize, maybe. His address will be the State Insane Asylum, Jackson, Mississippi. One thing fur- ther. If you think this section can be improved, don’t get stuck up. We thought so long before you did. There are several students to whom, in the preceding sec- tions, we have failed to give the honorable mention which they think rightfully belongs to them. We ask that these few bear in mind that others may not have the same opinion of them as they do themselves. We are sorry that this dif- ference of opinion exists. Well, what is done is done and cannot be undone. The Staff i i i Prof. Swor: “Ruth Jacoway worries me to death. She is continually smiling at me in my classes.” Prof. Blaine: “Give her an ‘A’ and she will quit quilling you.” i i i Willard Bond: “Could you learn to love me?” Evie Stringer: “I don’t know; I learned to eat spinach.” i i i “So you have another little baby in your home, Mr. Smith. Is it a boy or girl?” “Girl, sir.” “And your other little one is of the contrary sex, I believe.” “Yes, sir, another girl.” iii Leo: “I kissed her when she wasn’t looking.” Frank: “What did she do?” Leo: “She wouldn’t look at me the rest of the evening.” Ratliff: “Darling, there has been something trembling on my lips for months and months.” Helen Baker: “So I see. Why don’t you shave it off?” i i i Woodson: “Ava Burton smokes incessantly, doesn’t she?” W. E.: “Well, she ought to, she’s hot enough.” i i i He has the teacher spotted, It really is a shame. And now he sits down calmly And coolly writes his name. But now his groans are heavy, A tear his paper blots, For he is like a leopard — He cannot change his spots. i i i Clothes make the man : lack of them the co-ed. Mr. O’Neil finally gets to make an announcement in chapel . Tite says , " 5 77s better to smoke in this world than the next one .” i i i Tite: “The Prince was born when the battle of Leipzig took place. Now, who knows the date of his birth ?” Frosh Smith: “The 17th, 1 8th, and 19th of Oc- tober.” The reason students enjoy Dr. Sumr all’s classes. “If all the freshmen were placed end to end at a banquet in Jennings Hall, they would reach.” i i 1 “A woman’s mind is as uncertain as a grape fruit’s squirt.” i i Dr. Wallace: “Can any of you tell me what makes the tower of Pisa lean?” Mrs. Smith: “I don’t know, or I would take some myself.” i i 1 Ruth Herring: “Father says my lips are the pret- tiest he has ever seen.” Hugh Curry: “I’ll put mine against them any time.” i 1 i Snooks Weeks: “Did you go riding with Frank Rugg last night?” Ressie Keys: “Yes.” Snooks Weeks: “What do you think of him?” Ressie Keys: “Well, he’s either a gentleman or a fool.” Where we would like best to see our co-eds. (The near- est sea is several hundred miles away.) Pete: “What kind of cigarette are you smoking ?” Wayne: “I didn’t ask him.” i i i Chester Svvor’s idea of a perfect chaperon is a good-locking one like Miss Collins, who permits kissing right under her nose. Randolph Delk schemes up some way to get even with Goosie Smith. i i i 1 1 1 Lady (at football game) : “What’s that man do- ing kicking those men in the line?” Dr. Sumrall : “Since when do you call that a line?” New Song Hit: “I’ll Get By As Long As I Have You.” Words and music by Nap White and dedi- cated to his Latin jack. i Rose: “You certainly are a nice boy.” Leo: “Yes, but I’m tired of it.” i i Mr. Crowe: “Say, look here. You ain’t getting as much milk from them cows as y’uster.” Goosie: “Nope, sorter lost my pull.” i i i “Do you think your son will forget what he is learning in college?” “I hope so. He can’t make a living dancing, drinking, and petting.” Dad: “Here’s a riddle, Sally. Five couples are car riding. Three girls say their mothers won’t let them pet. How many couples pet?” Sally: “Five.” The way Dr. Wood looked when a student at Mercer University . n— 1 — i -cnnXHzoD COD -ni— |o n J MINISTERIAL STUDENTS Interested in avoiding the dangers of delay and eager to prepare for their largest usefulness in Christ’s service in a university-type of Sem- inary, where central location, cosmopolitan stu- dent body, bautiful campus, world-famous fac- ulty, Christian scholarship, spiritual depth, mis- sionary zeal, love of truth, world prestige, etc., may be had at moderate rates, should write at once to The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary DR.

She’s afraid of a cockroach, she’ll scream at a mouse, But she’ll tackle a man as big as a house. She’ll take him for better, she’ll take him for worse; She’ll split his head open and then be his nurse: And when he is well and can get out of bed, She’ll pick up a teapot and throw at his head. She’s faithful, deceitful, keen-sighted, and blind. She’s crafty, she’s simple, she’s cruel, she’s kind. She’ll lift a man up, she’ll cast a man down. She’ll call him her king, and she’ll make him her clown. You fancy she’s this, but you find that she’s that, For she’ll play like a kitten and she’ll scratch like a cat. In the evening she will, in the morning she won’t. And you are always expecting she does, but she don’t. Sez You ! " When Clothes Are Dirty, Ring Seven-Thirty” Yes, Sez Me !
