May, President HATEVER success has come to the Tate-Quitman Junior College and Agricultural High School is largely attributable to the excellent mem- bers of the Board of Trustees, who have so faithfully and loyally sup- ported it. Their faith in the school has caused them, when others were skeptical, and indifferent, to have a vision of the future of the school as a great success as an educational institution and as a power for good in Northwest jVlis- sissippi. Now that the successes for which they have so faithfully toiled are be- ginning to open before us, we want to dedicate this, our first annual, not only to the present trustees but also to all others who have served as members, and es- pecially to Mr. W. W. May, President of the Board for the past eight years, and to the memory of the late Messrs. C. P. House and C. P. Still. Page Five Prof. P. W. Berry A Tribute To Professor P. W.

Our school to us is more than Four columns, brick and stone; It holds a place within our hearts, A place we cherish — all our own. We ' ll e ' er remember our old school And the roads of knowledge trod; We pray that it may ever stand And keep building men for God. — Robert F-owinkle. ■Page Twelve History of School seems apparent that Mother Nature built an imposing hill covering fifty acres, on the northern outskirts of Senatobia, Mississippi, for the purpose of providing a picturesque site for Tate County Agricul- tural I ligh School. As here this historic institution stands in bold relief against a clear, unob- structed horizon on a campus sloping gradually eastward, dotted with spreading oaks. On entering from the southernmost corner of the campus a circular drive- way which is bordered with wild sumac. lilac, flowering ageratum, roses, altheas, and bushy evergreens, one reaches first the Girls ' Dormitory, a substantial red brick three story building, accommodating fifty girls. At the rear of this building there is a tennis court, which provides physical and social recreation for the many girls and boys who seek learning within the walls of the school. Next in route, slightly in the background is the historic old Garrott home, an architectural re- minder of our true southern ante-bellum homes. In front of this home stands a drinking fountain, a gift from the Senatobia Civic Club. The next building on the circular drive, the most majestic of all, is the Academic Building. Huge con- crete Doric columns, ornamenting the entrance of this red brick building, give it an air of Grecian culture. Continuing around the driveway we reach the Boys ' Dormitory. Surely such a panorama of scenery and such comfortable facilities should spur these students on to higher, greater, and nobler achievements. The history of the Tate County Agricultural High School is but the growth, development, and unfolding of educational ideals in Tate County, the concrete expression of educational progress. In 1 -)12 Tate County, among the first coun- ties in the state, began the building of this school. The first agricultural school was located by the County School Board at Arkabutla. The Act authorizing the establishment of the agricultural school was held unconstitutional because no pro- vision was made for agricultural schools for the negroes. The School Board then relocated the School and Senatobia won after a hard fought battle with Coldwater. A bond issue of $20,000.00 was voted and work began on the erection of the building. Before its completion, $12,000.00 additional bonds were issued, and later $20,000.00 for the Girls ' Dormitory. The site for the school was purchased by the Town of Senatobia from Mrs. G. W. Hardin for $8,000.00 and donated to the Board of Supervisors; later the Town of Senatobia issued $10,000.00 bonds, mak- ing a total of $18,000.00. Senatobia donated to the school free lights and water for the first five years of its history. The site of the Agricultural School has a historical background closely inter- woven with the history of Senatobia, Indian parlance, ' AVhite Sycamore. " The old home, now the home of Professor and Mrs. Berry, was built before the war Page Thirteen ass Megg g with slave labor by one of the forbears of the Rowel] family. Later this became the Garrott home, where the social splendor of the yesterdays of Senatobia blazed in all its glory. There is an old road that skirts the northern boundary of the Agricultural School property; this is but a bridle path now, but it too has a history. It is a part ol the old Helena Trail, an Indian road as old as Indian lore is old. The Tate County Agricultural High School has had only two principals. The first was the genial Andrew G. Gainey, who came to the school in its infancy, and who was principal for six years. Under his brilliant leadership the school sprang at once into state renown and took its place among the best institutions of learning. Then came Mr. Berry, who has led on and on this educational institution into fur- ther success until now it is a recognized Junior College. As the school developed, the need of larger territory was evident. During the summer of 1928 the adjoining coun- ties were asked to co-operate in the making of Tate County A gricultural High School a Junior College. Quitman county led the movement. A levy was made for the support of the school, five trustees were added to the Board, and the name of the school was changed to Tate-Quitman Agricultural High School and Junior College. Other counties of Northwest Mississippi are expected to join before the opening of another session. Now, a Bi-County Institution, bed-rocked upon a his- toric background and interwoven with the normal development of Northwest Mis- sissippi, this institution is destined to a further prominent place in the tomorrow of our lives. The graduates of this School, although it is less than a score of years old, are helping in the today ' s events of the country to uphold the traditions of the South and bring prosperity and success to its newer ideals. A history of the school would be incomplete did it not pay homage to the mem- ory of the lamented J. A. Wooten, B. A. Tucker, and H. I. Gill, who worked arduously and faithfully for the success of the school in its early days. It would be impossible to mention all those who have worked for the welfare of the institu- tion. Her interest has ever been safeguarded by the loyalty of her friends. For- tune smiled upon her in the selection of county superintendents. There is first, Superintendent Allen, whose very life ' s blood is mixed with the brick and mortar of every building. Next came Superintendent Cathey, whose wisdom and scholarship were potential factors in the progress of the institution. Last came Miss Clayton, under whose leadership the institution is destined to put away its swaddling clothes and burst forth into a period of growth and expansion such as will insure its recog- nition not only as a Junior College but also as an educational leader in Northwest Mississippi.

And smilingly adds, ' Why, it ' s not far. " Vo the school of Aggie fame With eager minds these students came. With willing hands and oft a tear. Wending their way from far and near. Lynville Wright, our President fine. Came up from Jackson with his line; From Bucksnort came our lovely Queen, None other than Bonnie reigned supreme. From our town came Dot and Polly, Wreathed in smiles to keep us jolly. And laughing Edith came up from Strayhorn, Leaving that hamlet bare and forlorn. Of beautiful blondes, our class had many Terry, and. Conie, and Mellie, and Winnie, All helpful with their eyes ' blue To prove what gentlemen think is true. Paul Phillips, very dapper and gay, Was our Beau Brummel without a nay. Merle Chambers added her bit. Who hailed from Palestine with her wit. In mid-season three stragglers came Anxious to have their chance at fame. And speedily gained the honored places Deservedly won by their winsome graces. Up from Sardis came one o ' these girls With sparkling black eyes and lots o ' curls, And ere a week from that single trip Rose packed our hearts within her grip. Big Dorothy and Alma and Nell, All former students and used to the bell. Knew the business and how to stick Showed us cleverlv how to turn the trick. Continuing from twenty-eight to twenty-nine, Olivia, in her work, ne ' er fell behind; So she is best in our belief To be our annual ' s Editor-in-chiel. One year hence in twenty-nine, Ten loyal students came in line. Back to the Aggie to finish their work Determined their tasks never to shirk. New ones added to our ten were three, And we were happy as thirteen could be. We were glad to have them join our gang Cause we make things go ' round with a bang. Alma and Conie and Bonnie and Edith, After twenty-eight, decided to beat it; Terry and Abe and Paul ne ' er returned. But in our hearts their memory burns. Now, Thelma Crockett, you ' re next to meet. Is our president and a real athlete; And Ilene, her sister, is a very fine girl. And never even cries if her hair doesn ' t curl. Mere ' s the most smiling sophomore yet. And. among our students he is the pet: lie ' s Cecil Burford, with a heart of gold. And what ' s more, he ' s a Lochinvar bold. A bit of advice just one more time. Ere 1 close this boresome rhyme: II any good you think you can do. Sign on the line. " I ' ll put it through. " Pauline Stevens, ' 29.

She was chosen by the vote of the student body as the " best all around girl in school. James Wilborn .... Looxahoma No matter where the wheels of fate cast " Preacher, " he is sure to succeed, for he is loyal and trustworthy. If one ever noticed his eager swing as he goes along his way to the hank at noon he is not surprised that James was chosen the most business-like person in school. Max Wooten Senatobia " Flat.

Page Thirty-four History of the Class of ' 29 N accordance with the firmly rooted and long established custom of writing a class history, we strive to do two things: first, to rightly con- sider the tradition itself; and second, tq present our many experiences of the past four years to imagining minds of the on-coming classes. As the great portion of the members of this Senior Class were freshmen in other schools, it can rightly be said that our first relation to the Tate County Agricul- tural Nigh School was when we took our stand as sophomores in the fall of 1926. The entirely new surroundings, new teachers, and hard lessons put to the test tlie stickability of us new students. Although we were sophomores, socially we played the part of freshmen throughout the whole year. As it has be en said before, the first few weeks passed like creeping years. But. needless to say, as we became more accustomed, time passed faster and finally our sophomore year of high school had ended. Ah! a vacation, and then our junior year. The third year of high school life we found much easier than the two years just passed. We had grown sufficiently to endure the tragedies, and to enjoy the pleasures that cross the path of high school students. Now let us say just a word to our interior successors. I shot an arrow into the air, It fell to earth, I know not where; Long, long afterward in an oak, I found the arrow, still unbroke. Fellow students, remember, while forming your high school habits, that books play a very important part; but your earthly success depends upon your ability to meet cheerfully the world with a thought of your own. But back to our subject. We have, by four years of reaching forward, by four years of trials and tribulations, come to be members of this 1929 graduation class. At times, we are sorry to say, members have dropped from this class, but we can joyfully say that some have joined us. By our graduating on May 16 of this year, we shall not be wholly separated from this school, as it isi thought, but more closely associated by our Alumni. If it is possible for the present and past to foretell the future, members from cur class will be chosen to go forth in all walks of life. But first, as our motto reads: " Preparation is the keynote of success, " let us prepare; so that — ' AVe can go forth and capture success, Though it be not as a daily pest ' Page Thirty-five Prophecy of the Class of ? 29 r was the summer of 1936. It was early afternoon and as it was an exceedingly warm day, I had sought the friendly shade of a huge oak. There, in the depths of an old hammock, I began to outline the plot of my latest story. 1 still possessed that funny idea of my school days, that I would some day write a second " Paradise Lost " or something equally famous. Thus far, most of my " creations " had been assigned to the wastebasket, but I stubbornly refused to allow this somber and mournful aspect to interfere with my imagination. But my plot didn ' t suit me at all. The hero simply wouldn ' t behave himself, and after a while I gave up the attempt, flung the paper and pencil across the lawn, and proceeded to forget that I was a " ne ' er-do-well " authoress. There was nothing to mar the peaceful stillness of the afternoon save the occasional rattle of a passing automobile- It recalled to my mind, with a smile, the mad excitement that the appearance of the first of its kind had occasioned in the neighborhood. The day of the automobile was past now, only farmers and such owned the common things. It was the day of the aeroplane. I recalled also how people had craned their necks, the better to view the first of these modern machines. As I pondered on the achievements of time, my next-door neighbor, who was also a writer, but far more successful than I, drove his plane out of its hangar and invited me for a spin in the air, far above the buildings below, which were fast disappearing from view. We passed a number of other planes, among them that of James Wilborn, a successful banker of a large Western city, who was home for a brief visit. I le waved a greeting to us and we sped onward. After a while my attention was at- tracted by a large smoke sign which advertised the fact that Mile. Berenice Stevens was appearing at the Dreamland Theater. As I had heard a great deal about this graceful little danseuse, I expressed a desire to see her. We were near- ing the magnificent building, and before long our plane rested on the flat top of the theater. We descended a broad stairway to the first floor, where a packed house was watching every movement of the lovely little figure which graced the huge stage. It was with a gasp of astonishment that I realized that she was none other than my old classmate, Berry Stevens. I could hardly suppress my su prise and when the performance was over, with an usher as guide, I sought her dressing room, and she seemed really glad to see me. and asked about all our old chums. It seemed, though, that she knew a great deal more about them than did I. First of all, when I asked her how the Dreamland Theater was supported, she explained that it was held in place by the use of helium, huge quantities of which Page Thirty-six had been discovered by Jesse Maughan, who had become a scientist of note. The owner of the building, it seemed, was Jesse Manus, a theatrical magnate. Remembering how inseparable they had been during their Senior year, 1 asked Berry about Hazel Byers. She replied that Hazel had sought success in a distant port and was now secretary to the president, being one of the few women to hold that enviable position. Wilma Wallace is in France, where she is startling the thousands of Paris dieater-goers with her piano masterpieces. 1 1 ugh Taylor has quite a family and owns a large Western ranch. I lis won- derful horses and cattle are the pride of his heart. Max Wooten owns a large ice factory in Switzerland and is doing a splendid business. Harold Eason has gained high honors and is now Chief Justice of the Su- preme Court. Powhatan Sturdivant is in the South Sea Islands, where he is instructing the natives in the art of dancing. Cecil Ray is a successful lawyer, putting into practice the experience gained in debating while at Tate-Quitman Hi. He is located at New Orleans. We discussed at length the new President of the United States, who was none other than James Brown. We might have dreamed of our classmates doing great things, but we had never thought of " Chigger " becoming President. Elizabeth Sullivant, a stenographer, is connected with a leading business con- cern in Los Angeles. Berry showed me a clipping from a Los Angeles newspaper which gave a brilliant account of her success. Marie Billingsley is the possessor of a charming little home and an obedient husband. Marguerite Ferguson is a dramatic actress of unusual ability and has gained much publicity in New York, where she is appearing. She plans to tour Europe in the immediate future. Mary Moore Love and Mack Wallace are co-stars for a large Western film corporation. Berry and 1 promptly made an engagement for the following even- ing to go to see their latest picture. Berry showed me a recent letter from Mary Moore, in which she intimated that she was soon to change her last name. She wrote that Mack was being pursued by several members of the film colony, but was still very much interested in a friend of high school days. Page Thirty-seven Brewer Golden was not able to run the wheels off his Chevrolet in high school, so now he has entered the auto racing world. Clarence Mclver has centered his hopes on being an antique collector. He has started with Columbus ' favorite copy of Elinor Glyn, and Cleopatra ' s lipstick. Max Billingsley has invented a new method of obtaining permanent dimples, by sleeping on collar buttons at night. S. T. Gordon has been studying criminology. He is going to start in by open- ing the Fork and Spoon Store next to the county jail. Raymond Waldrop now holds a lofty position in the army: button polisher for General Pershing. Ruth Farmer has carried out her new idea of developing a steam shovel method of face lifting. Laverne Ferguson has given his friends quite a surprise and now occupies the exalted position of professor of psychology in a large Eastern University. Durwood Golden, noted lover of the ladies, while attending his duties as ambassador to Great Britain, met a beautiful English girl, who is now Mrs. Golden. It was growing late, and as it was time for Berry ' s next performance, we parted and in a few minutes we were gliding homeward.

We wonder who will be next? For the first time since school started Robert Lmbrey was at class on time. We have decided to give him a brass button.

Rain or shine he was always on the job, not missing an afternoon ' s practice. Coach Gully did all for his team that is possible for a coach to do. Captain Jimmie King — Jimmie King was elected captain of this year ' s team by a large majority of votes. Besides playing almost every second in every game, and starring, our captain led his team as a real captain should, jimmie is popular with the boys as well as with " a " girl. Page Forty-eight When the call came out for football players this year, the best prospects that the school has ever seen came forward. There were almost two complete teams that reported for the first day ' s practice. Everything seemed in favor for a splendid football season. Several of these men had never played football before, but under the careful coaching they improved rapidly. Starting the season with an impressive victory over the Memphis University School, the Aggies swept aside the Caruthersville Junior College by a larger score. This winning streak was halted by the Southwestern Bobcats when they came down from Memphis and put over a lone touchdown in a late period to defeat the Aggies by the score of 6 to 0. From this place on, the Aggies suffered defeat after defeat. The Aggies then journeyed to Tupelo and were again defeated by a small score. The next four games were lost to Helena, Moorhead, Blue Mountain, and Delta State Teachers College. The season as a whole was very successful even though many games were lost. It is a very difficult task to try to point out the persons responsible for this rec- ord. If any credit is given it should be given to Coach Gully and to Captain Jim- mie King. These men did more for the team than any one else connected with it. Coach Gully did his share and move in coaching the team, and Captain King did all that is possible for a captain to do. Page Forty-nun Ray Graves Ruby BuRhOKD Cecil Ray, End ' Squatty " Ray .started the season off at hall, but was switched to end. He filled both places very capably and showed up well in every game. ' Squatty " had the good old fighting spirit and did much to hold up the morale of the team, lie was our alternate captain. Sye Graves, Halfback Making Ion? vnd runs and intercept- in;; opponents ' passes was Sye Graves ' specialty. Besides being a thorn in the side of all those he played against on the defense, Sye was our highest scorer. He was always ready to carry the ball and usually gained ground when he did. Sydney Ruby, End Ruby was one of the best men we had on the defense. He was very had about getting his man behind the line of scrim- mage. Ruby was good at snagging passes and was a threat during every game. I le always moved his man when the play was to come around his end. Ruby fought to the last whistle and never gave up. Cecil Buri-ord, Halfback " Nuts " Burford was considered one of our fastest men. He was good on long end runs. Burford stayed crippled up for a large part of the season: but he helped the team greatly. Page Fifty Cox LOWINKI E Man us Weathers William Cox, Guard For an extra guard we had Cox. lie got iii a good number of the games and did good work all the time that he was playing. If he returns next year, we are expecting him to develop into a lirst string guard. Jesse Manus, End Jesse Manus was always in the scrap from the beginning to the end. He had hard luck near the end of the season when he bloke several small bones in his foot. Of course this kept him from playing any more. Jesse was greatly missed. Robert Fowinkle, Tackle Bob came to us late in the year but soon enough to convince us that he was a great football player. I le played in the last three games of the season and made himself a good name as a football player. Joe Weathers, Guard " Big Joe " Weathers was a terror to all of the opposing teams. He terrified his opponent in looks as well as in ac- tions. Joe filled the position of guard very capably and few plays ever went over him. Page Fifty-one Raleigh Lauderdale Slaughter Layton Raleigh, Halfback Layton started the season at end, but was switched to half. I le was a hard worker and took an interest in the game. Layton played his best game of the year ac Delta State. Douglas Lauderdale, Guard ' Doug " Lauderdale, our other guard, was a good consistent player. He was usually in most of the plays, and was a hard man to gain ground over. " Doug " had to be taken out of the game and be put back again before he could hit his stride. Mack Slaughter, Quarterback One of the hardest workers on our team was our quarterback. It takes a good man to fill this position and Mack did it well. Mack performed best of all at Blue Mountain in the game with M. H. A. when he played safety and broke many end runs Ennis Poe, Tackle ' ' Get that big blond. " was the cry that was heard in almost every game we played this year. Ennis did splendid work at Blue Mountain, but his perform- ance at Tupelo cannot be criticized. Poe played center in this game and had a good man to play against. Our blond moved his man consistently. Page Fifty-t ' utj DICKSON COLLINS (,. BROWN SIMS Carva Dickson, Halfback Carva Dickson had the misfortune at the first of the season to break his foot and was unable to play any more games of the season. Carva would have made us a good man ; therefore we felt his loss. He played part of the game with Moorhead but had to be taken out on account of his foot. Thomas Hill Collins, Guard Thomas Collins did his part in devel- oping the team for he was always out for every practice. He showed the spirit that never gives in George Brown, Center George was one of the best centers ever to wear an Aggie uniform. I le was al- ways fighting and the opposing team hardly ever ran a play over him. During the whole season George never made a bad pass; he was also a good defensive man. The best game he played was at Delta State College where his breaking up plays at all times was the outstand- ing feature of the game. Sam Sims, Guard Although Sam Sims was small and did not see much service this year, he should develop into a good guard next season. He, too, did his part in building up his team as he was always out to practice. James Brown, End James Brown did not begin the sea- son but after a few practices he made a dependable end. Although he is small, he is very fast. Next season he should make a star end. 1 le played un- usually well in the games with Blue Mountain and Delta State. Page Fifty-tlrei AGGIE ELEVEN Aggies, 13; M. U. S., To start the season off the Aggies de- feated the Memphis University School in a very exciting game. As it was the first game of the year for both teams, the play- ing was rather ragged to begin with. As the game progressed, the playing improved and both teams showed up well The first half enLki with the score 0-0. In the sec- ond half the Aggies came back in a fighting mood and pushed over two touchdowns to win 13-0. As Sye Graves made both of the scores, he was the outstanding man of the day. Aggies, 24; Caruthersville, The strong Caruthersville Junior Col- lege team came down from .Missouri very confident of a victory from Senatobia. The Aggie boys knew that their opponents would have to be shown as they were from Mis- souri, and went into the game to show them. From the first play on. the Aggies were masters of the situation and had little trou- ble in putting over counters. When the game ended, the Senatobia boys had very plainly shown the boys from Missouri who was who. as the score was 24-0 in favor of the Aggies. Aggies, 0; Southwestern, 6 The Aggies suffered their first defeat by the hands of the Southwestern Bobcats from Memphis. The game was close and full of thrills from start to finish. At first it seemed as if the game would end in a scoreless tie. but the Bobcats managed to slip over a touchdown in the last period to win by the score of 6-0. This game showed what the Aggies were made of. The Bobcats had every advantage in the world in their favor, but the fighting spirit of the Aggies turned them back. Aggies, 0;T. M. I., 13 The first trip of the season ended rather disastrously for the Aggies. In a hard fought, well-played game the Cadets from Tupelo won from the Aggie boys by the small score of 13-0. White, the big Tupelo fullback, was hard to stop and ripped off yard after yard. Captain King of the Ag- gies played his usual steady game and was a threat throughout the contest. The Tu- pelo touchdowns were more or less luckily made and the two teams were evenly matched. Page Fifty-four THE SQUAD Aggies, 6; Helena, 1 3 In an slow drizzling rain the boys from Helena, Arkansas, defeated the .Aggies by the score of 13-6. The Aggies were still sore and stiff from the game with Tupelo, and did not play the football that they were capable of playing. In the first three minutes of play Senatobia marched over the Helena boys for a touchdown, but from then on the game was in favor of Helena. This was a hard game to lose. Aggies, 0; Moorhead, 7 Moorhead came up to Senatobia on Homecoming Day very confident of an easy victory. During the first three quarters both teams swayed back and forth, up and down the field, neither team being able to gain much ground. The Aggie boys were putting out all that they had and were in a fighting mood. I he usual lucky break came in the last quarter and Moorhead re- covered a fumble that resulted in the win- ning touchdown. These lucky breaks were coming entirely too often to suit the Aggies as they were always in favor of the oppos- ing teams. This was a good game and a hard one to lose. Aggies, 0; Delta State 39 The Aggie boys covered themselves with glory when they played Delta State Teach- ers ' College at Cleveland. The score dot " not indicate the closeness of the game. Delta State made all her touchdowns but one on long forward passes. Senatobia did more with the Delta State team than any other team this year, making more first downs than Delta State. Delta State had two tackles that had not been moved this year, but the Aggie ends had them out almost ivery play. Delta State had our boys out- classed, but they were more than surprised at the opposition they gave them. Aggies, Blue Mountain, 19 Last year on I lomecoming Day. the Ag- gie boys upset the crowd by beating Mis- sissippi Heights Academy of Blue Mountain, Mississippi. This year the M. 11. A. boys got their revenge by defeating the Sena- tobia Aggies by the score of 19-0. The fielc was wet and there was some talk of a bac deal. These things happen in sports of ah kinds, and cannot be helped. We sympa- thize with the boys going to M. H. A. 1 his was a loss in more than one respect. " Skeeter " Manus suffered a broken foot, and was lost to the team for the rest of the season. He was greatly missed Page Fifty-five J The Junior College basketball team began its season with seven straight vic- tories and no defeats. However, the next seven were lost. It seemed as if all of our teams had splendid beginnings, but very disastrous endings as far as winning games was concerned. The team was a good one and was well supported through- out the season. Cecil Burford was captain and George Brown was alternate cap- tain. The starting line-up at the first of the season was Ruby and Brown at for- ward. Smith at center, King and Burford at guard. Sye Graves and Hoyte John- son also played at guard and forward respectively. The others that made up the squad were Collins, Poe, Palmertree, Fowinkle, and Slaughter. The results were ar. , ' ollows: Junior College Junior College 15 Junior College 27 Junior College 21 Junior College 21 Junior College 14 Junior College 17 6; Bank of Commerce 2(1 First National Bank 1 First National Bank 2 Eudora 24 Moorhead I " Moorhead 9 Southwestern Bobcats 3 L ' unior College 22; Southwestern Bobcats It unior College 21: Caruthersville 5LJ unior College 26; Moorhead 27 unior College 25; Moorhead 27 unior College 4; Wesson 32 unior College 21: Wesson 35 unior College V. Raymond 50 Page Fifty-six High School Basketball Our high school team made a splendid showing this year. Out of thirte en games played our boys lost only two. The first game was lost to Tallahatchie and the second in the District Tourna- ment when they were defeated by the Oakland Aggies. Both of these games were close and did not take any of the glory from die many victories. James Brown was captain and Carva Dick- son was alternate captain. These two men played a fine brand of basketball in every game. The starting line-up for the High School was Brown and Raleigh at forward, Sorrells at center, and Dickson and Ferguson at guard. Douglas Lauderdale played in a good many games. The rest of the squad was made up of Wal- lace, Weathers, Sims, Alclver, Wilborn and Ray. Page Fifty-seven a - .JfK V ' The prospects for a baseball team are very bright this year. For the last week the team has been working out and the men are all showing up well. Several of last year ' s men are back and the team will be built up around these men. The men going out for infield are: Graves, Manus, Sorrells, King, Sims, Weathers, G. Brown, Dickson, Lewers, Ray and Ruby. The outfielders are Tidwell, Wallace, J. Brown, Ferguson and Wilborn. Burford and Fowinkle will do the catching. The pitching staff is composed of Gates, Dickson, Fauderdale, and Poe. Coach Gully has ar- ranged four games with Moorhead, four with Goodman, and two with Wesson.

Page Fifty-nine Girls ' Athletic Association Alice Pearce President Joe Saunders Vice-President I lene Crockett . . . . Secretary and Treasurer The Girls ' Athletic Association of Tate-Quitman School was organized in the winter of 1929 by the girls for the purpose of furthering girls ' athletics. The first season offered basketball, with nearly every girl re- siding at the school, going out for practice. Volley ball and tennis are the sports in which the girls will next participate. This will be the first year that volley ball has been offered, and considering the material, we should have a splendid team. A great deal of enthusiasm is shown as the tennis nets are stretched, for it is another event in which the societies contesi for championship. As yet the cup has not been awarded. Page Sixty The High School and Junior College Basketball game brought to a close the first season of basketball for the Tate-Quitman Junior College girls. Although very few games were played, the girls displayed much enthusiasm and interest in practicing among themselves. The manager for the Junior College basketball team, Sara Lee Morris, was very capable. The season could not have been suc- cessful without such an able captain as Joe Saunders. In fact the entire squad did all that was possible to help. Last but not least the very efficient coach, M ' rs. Gully, did all that she could to produce a winning team. Although the team lost their most important game with Goodman, the score was very close, being 10 to 13. This team was composed of: Forwards: Lenore Shaw and Alice Pearce. Centers: Floy Smith and Sara Fee Morris. Guards: Joe Saunders anil Feona Smith Substitutes: Thelma Crockett, Annie Muriel Chambers Pattye Puryear. Ilene Crockett, Martha Fouise Tubbs, and Annie Faurie Chamblin. Page Sixty-one High School Basketball The girls of this season ' s High School Basketball team have taken their basketball seriously and have practiced faithfully. This is partly due to the manager, Elizabeth Sullivant, and the captain, Wilma Wallace. The High School ' s first game was the one in which they beat Ark abutla 30 to 17. In the next two games they were defeated first by Mt. Olivet and then by Independence. These games, however, made the girls fight more than ever, tor they defeated Coldwater and Senatobia High School by a large score. Much credit is given to the coach, Mrs. Guhv Just before the Junior College game with Goodman, the two teams combined to make one strong team. The last game that the High School team played was the Society game in which the Junior College won, 16 to 9. The players were: Forwards: Wilma Wallace and Elizabeth Sullivant. Centers: Audrey Tate and Mary Moore Love. Guards: Lillian Brewer and Lugenia Chambers. Substitutes: Floy Kopf, Dorothv Canon, Lamora Carring- ton and Sara little. Page Sixty-two ACTIVITIES The primary objectives of all the activities are to work for the good of our school and to make our life more varied, more inter- esting, and better. The spirit that actuates the members of these organizations is that spirit that bids one do a little more than just what is required of him. Happy hours, entertain- ments, songs, and " pep rallies " are the specific continuation of this Work at the Aggie. Page Sixty-thret _ _ . t __ ' ■■ L ' tew Thumb Tack Literary Society Mack Slaughter President Gladys Graves Vice-President Pattye Puryear . .... Secretary-Treasurer Our name? What does it mean? It means that we will stick through thick and thin. We organized at the first of this year for the purpose of helping our school in any way possible. This organization could not have been such a success had we not had Mack Slaughter as our most able president. He is a typical " Thumb Tack. " When any work was to be done " Trick " was always ready to do his share, and in many instances, that of his neighbor. Yet, with an able president, and whatever else a society must have to become a success. our club would have gone down, had it not been for each and every member. We have no slackers, nor do we have any shirkers. They are all backers and workers. For what could we have done without someone to carry out the plans of the program committee? The thing that we have most stressed for the last few months is " Win that battle. " We have won many battles over the High School Society, and we are ready to win more. In the College-Hi School football game, we came out victorious. The girls won a hard fought battle for the points given for the College-High School girls ' basketball game. The long and hot debate was another sample of our plucky, well-earned fights. However, we come out on top. The only contest that we have lost to the High Hatters was that of spell- ing. This, we hope to be the only one. Page Sixty-four High Hatters Society Lillian Brewer Dorothy Canon Junior Gates President Vice-President Secretary and Treasurer The High Hatters Literary Society was organized to promote the interest of students in Literary Activities. This society seeks to open avenues, among the boys and girls, for originality, com- petition, and fun. By competing in both literary and athletic events, this society has held the interest of the entire school. A number of times it has clashed successfully with the Thumb Tack Society. Especially in the spelling match and football game did the members put up a hard fight, winning the spelling match. In passing on may our followers not only " Keep the heights, but keep climbing. " This society has been ably sponsored by Mr. and .Mrs. Gullv and Miss Conger. Page Sixty-five - «w niMp- frm Beethoven Mosic Club Wilma Wallace George Brown Lillian Brewer Mack Wallace Mrs. P. W.

President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer On September 19, 1928, the above officers were chosen to carry on the work of t he Cirl Reserves Club. The students fell in line and loyally supported the leaders. With the influence and help of our efficient adviser, Miss Hartness, the club could do nothing but excel. The conferences, both district and state, were attended by the officers who brought back an inspiration to the entire club. The girls have striven to follow the code by being true Christian girls. They have made real the purpose of the G. R. Club — to seek and find the best, to be gracious in manner, earnest in pur- pose, eager for knowledge, impartial in judgment, and reverent to God. The symbol of the Girl Reserves is the triangle of blue. Oh, how we love thee, triangle of blue Where girls may meet in bonds of friendship true; Body, mind, and spirit, honor and revere it; Now loudly cheer it — triangle of blue. Page Sixty-eight Mack Slaughter Mack Wallace Silas Graves Wade Kellum Mr. Cavett President Vice-President Secretary and Treasurer Reporter Adviser The Hi-Y Club is based on three principles: the purpose, the platform, and the slogan. The purpose is " to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character. " The platform is " clean speech, clean sport, and clean living. " The " Three C ' s, " which result in three C ' s: " contagious Christian character. " The slogan is " Service. " The activities of the club are based on a plan of unselfish service to our homes, our school, our church, and our community. In our meetings we devote most of our time to Bible study in the form of a frank and fearless discussion by the entire club of some actual every-day life problems of high school and college boys. Our competent of ficers arrange our weekly meetings which are attended by everyone.

Page Seventy-two Agriculture Club Jesse Manus President Curtis Sorrells Vice-President Carva Dickson . . . Secretary and Treasurer Mr. Deen Sponsor The Agriculture Club was organized for the purpose of promoting practical modern agri- culture, better living, and better homes. In order to promote better living and better farm- ing, the boys, through the extension department, go out to the farmer ' s home, teach and show him how to prune and spray fruit trees, terrace land, vaccinate cattle and swine, dehorn cattle and the proper methods of feeding and caring for live stock. They also build screen doors and screen windows. The club is ready at all times to render service to the farmers of the county. In order that the club may function properly, each boy is required to supplement his work with farm bulletins, laboratory exercise, field trips and farm papers . Each boy must carry a farm project to completion with three or more views in mind: first, financial re- turns; second, educational value; and third, managerial ability to be developed. The school maintains a farm of eighty-five acres of land including pasture and campus A herd of Jersey cattle, a herd of Poland China and Spotted Poland China hogs, three pairs f mules, poultry and modern farm machinery . On this farm the club boys do their prac- tical work, and experiments with gardening, orcharding, growing cotton, corn, hogs and potatoes. Fertilizer experiments are carried out also, for the benefit of the club and farmers in the county.

" MOONLIGHT night, a college campus, two shady forms, and then a voice, indistinct, but full of pleading. The moon grows brighter and we behold a man who, altogether strong and handsome, reminds us of " Darling, I Am Growing Old. " The voice becomes very distinct, " It goes like this " " I wanna be loved by you. " " How about it, honey? ' ' " Anything you say, dear. " " I can ' t give you anything but love, baby. " And as " It happens once in a lifetime " " Then came the dawn too soon " and we fear our " Beloved " Professor Deen shall always be " Waiting for ships that never come in. " Miss Conger, who at times reminds us of a " High Hat " debutante, says: " If I could be ' King for a day ' ' I ' d keep on dreaming of you.

Page Eigbty-one Freshman ' s Letter Home Dear Mama: Here I sit on a cracker box penciling at you. I ' d have written sooner, hut I can ' t write very well standing up. The day I got here Jabot met me at the train with a truck and took me to the boys ' dormitory. I told ' em I ' d like to join their eating club, ' cause I hadn ' t had anything to eat since I left home, but they only laughed and said nothing, so I got mad and went over to the girls ' dormitory, where I was asked to join. When I got there the girls said they had been waiting for me anci I guess I was the guest of honor, because! the very first night I got over to Mr. Berry ' s office. Any how I hadn ' t been over to the girls ' dormitory long before a lady came out of a room and wanted to know what I was doing over there. The girls told me later that her name was Miss Heartless. At her first glance at me I ran so quickly that I bumped several steps on my way down. The next night the " Suffermores " invited me to their kangaroo court. I ac- cepted because I was told that invitations from the " Suffermores " was always accepted. I didn ' t enjoy the meeting. They made me do most of the entertaining, but I won ' t go into detail of the meeting because really they aren ' t very impor- tant. The next night they had a weenie roast to keep me and my classmates from getting lonesome and homesick, I suppose. Perhaps to keep me and my classmates long enough to appreciate weenie roasts, and anyway, they always make new ar- rivals be " lions of the hour " to give them a good opinion, of the place. The first night I was here the " Suffermores " yelled " Lights out, Fresh " ; and I tried for five minutes to blow mine out, but it was on the inside of a little bottle and it wouldn ' t go out; so 1 put mine in my dresser drawer and shut it up in there for the night. The next night I got the advice of the " Suffermores " who turned a little thing that clicked. Some of them are awfully smart. Ma, do you know what a faculty is? I heard lots about it but could not find it for a while. The fellows up here grin when I ask what it is. I looked it up in the dictionary and found it meant " power to do things. " Do you think it refers to the " Suffermores " or some REAL class? When I got here the " Suffermores " told me I had to buy a bath ticket which cost $1.50 before I could take a bath. 1 never had $1,50 so I was not going to take a bath, but about a month later I found out those " Suffermores " were joking with me, so I took a bath. We have a big school with a large population and they have just finished a big inside basketball field. Well, I must close. It ' s nine o ' clock and you know what Pa told me about bed time. I wish you were here to tuck me in and kiss me good night. With love, YOUR SON. P. S. — I ' ll need a little more money than I thought, for I had to buy a chapel seat. It did not cost much for I got it from a senior who hasn ' t any need for it any longer. P. S. again — Be sure to take care of my pigs and my little calf. By Lillian Brewer.
