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
