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

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
