ADVERTISEMENTS ' i ' Asf ' mm u jaiiu.i The Theme of Our Book HE theme of the 1929 Potpourri is based upon the Indian, the Natchi- toches Indian, called by many the " chinkapin eaters. " In the building of this volume, I he staff members have tried in their imagination to glimpse back into the past when the Red man of the Natchitoches tribe quietly and peacefully went his way. They have tried to picture him as he hunted the fleet-footed deer in the forests or as he glided swiftly along in his birch canoe through the waters of the muddy Red. They have watched him return from his trips, and they have seen him gathr his little family about him in his wigwam to tell them stories of by-gone days. But the days of the Natchitoches Indian are gone. On the banks of the river he loved so well and on the hills he loved to roam, there dwells another race, a people that have learned to love the old Red and the little Pine Hills as well as the Red Man. The Indian has gone but slil his spirit lingers. And at evening when the sun is sinking low. It sends searchingly its long red fingers Over the paths he used to go. Where the quiet green-blue water ripp ' es Mid graceful swaying tall cane brake- Where the fading sunlight lies caressingly Over the calm Cane River Lake; In this spot once a mad wild river Carrying all before it, red with mud, Ran dauntlessly unbridled onward Like flowing unchecked blood. And near this wandering restless river A tribe of Indians built their home Where life is dreamy soft and pleasant And chinquapin trees bloom. Here is this sleepy little village Through Spring ' s freshness of growing, Through summer ' s lazy dustiness and heat, Through autumn ' s glory, winter ' s blowing. They lived their life, were born, grew old And died. And in the wild magnolia trees Squaws hung their fretting papooses Where they were swung asleep by the breeze. POTi Here Braves gathered ' round the old warrior. Who told them tales of warfare in his day; And how the Way they fought now would have been To him in his time mere child ' s play. A lichen covered stone and arch of vine aswing An ancient tree weighed down with growth of years. Perhaps ' twas here the chiefs smoked their pipes While dancing braves aroused their victim ' s fears. ' Twas under this same scarlet rising moon The Indian maiden waited for her lover, S ' anding outlined in dim silhoutte on the b ' uff While the moon as now peeped from a cloud ' s cover. In time the restless river forgot its course. It found another route, a shorter one to sea. And only a tiny stream ran where it had been. There Was no mad rushing as there used to be. All must pass— nothing lingers. Nations, unions, people, kings So passed the Indian and his village Into oblivion of past things- Years later the Cane river stream was dammed, And transformed into a Lake; But the sunlight remembers, the moonlight too, When they play about the swaying cane brake. What was here is but a memory; And memories fade, grow dim with age. But oft one finds a broken arrow or two Among the rocks and leaves of swaying sage. When hush of morning broods Across the fields still wet with pearly mist. Out of the quiet deep bosomed woods, are Indian Lovers parting from their tryst. The songs they sang still whisper in the wind. And when the breezes sing among the bral(e Reminiscently of folk they once did know Who lived and died near Cane River Lake. The songs they sang are whispered in the wind. The breezes sigh the lingering refrain Like pictures painted in a fire at night These faded years are with us once again. —Hilda Perini . JlDMINISTRdTlON Historical Sketch of State Normal OUISIANA STATE NORMAL COLLEGE established in 1885 as the State Normal School of Louisiana and changed in 1 91 8 to the State Normal College of Louisiana, is situated among the woods of a virgin pine forest in the Natchitoches Pine Hills, at the southern extremity of the historic old town of Natchitoches, the oldest town in the Louisiana Purchase. The beautiful country that borders the site of the college on either side, its permanent dining hall and dormitories, its perfect drainage, an abundance of the best deep well water, its sanitary provisions which insure good health, its well kept campus— all these, together with the refined atmosphere made possible by the splendid citizens of the community, make it the most coveted spot for an institution of learning in the state. During the forty-four years history of the Normal, it has enjoyed one of the most rapid growths in the development of any college in the South. The State Normal College is now the twelfth largest of its kind in the United States. The college was attended by but twenty- seven students during the first year of its history and had but three graduates. Last year, 2058 students enrolled in the college department. During the last five years the college has more than doubled in attendance. The State Normal may be said to be the mother of the public school system of Louisiana, for it wa s established at a time when there was no school system in the state and when trained teachers were unknown to the schools of the state. In rapidly growing numbers, the graduates of Normal entered the teaching profession and began to labor in the field of education and to arouse a professional zeal and enthusiasm that had never been felt in the schools of Louisiana before. This missionary work on the part of Normal School graduates did its part, for in 1898 the State in its Constitution first permitted the voting of special taxes for the maintenance and upbuilding of the state ' s public school system. T. H. Harris, state superintendent of schools, states in his " Story of Public Education in Louisiana " the following concerning the importance of the State Normal in the development of the public school system of the state. " Before the end of the century, the State Normal School was sending its graduates to all parts of the state. They were usually employed in the larger schools located in the towns and cities. They were fcaturated with the notion of their " mission. " They felt that they had been called to go forth and preach the Gospel of universal education. The establishment of the State Normal School was by far the most important thing ever done in interest of public education. " The State Normal College stands to-day as Louisiana ' s best Investment. While ventures other than educational have undoubtedly yielded excellent results for the state, these have been material rather than intellectual, moral and spiritual ; therefore, the work done by the State Normal has been superior to that done in such fields as levees, highways, agriculture, and con- servation of natural resources, for it has meant an enlightenment in the training of citizens of the state. During the forty-four years ' history of the Normal, over 6,000 students have completed the teacher training course at the college and engaged in teaching the youth of the state. In a careful survey made recently of the graduates of the college, it was found that they teach an average of eight years after graduation. Therefore the alumni of the Normal College have rendered, all told, more than 40,000 years of work as teachers and school officials. Estimating the average number of students taught by each teacher to be twenty-five per annum, then the total number of pupils-years has been 1,000,000. If school authorities are correct in their statement that a year in school is worth $100, then the graduates of the State Normal have given the youth of the state education valued at $100,000,000 or $2,500,000 per annum. m f President ' s Home Sfifc 7 ie Columns w V 1 B- v v . ■«. v .y Wb • r . ■ " ■■■» M a ■ .

I realize how short I have fallen in this ambition, and how many errors I have made; but my shortcomings, I believe I can truthfully say, have been of the head and not of the heart, of the flesh and not of the spirit. When you shall have passed from the campus of the State Normal College into the field of action of life, may you continue to be imbued with a noble ambition and sublime aspirations. Let nothing but the highest goal be your aim in whatever may ultimately be your chosen career. " Like the Winds of the Sea Are the Ways of Fate, As We Journey Along Through Life. It ' s the Set of the Soul That Determines the Coal, And Not the Calm Nor the Strife. " Sincerely, V. L. Roy Dean of Women ' s Message The length of my services as Dean of Women at Louisiana State Normal College has been such that I have had the opportunity to see girls enter the College as freshmen and graduate as seniors fulfilling, in their later years of College my highest hopes. This has been a great satisfaction. A great happiness for me has been the beautiful friend- ships I have made with the students from year to year. A recent pleasure has been the work that I have had a part in, that of at- tempting to secure a closer contact between the College and the parents of our students, particularly the freshmen; for it is certain that the College will have a greater opportunity for service, if its functions and ideals are understood by those whom it serves. Ethel L. Hereford. Dean of Men ' s Message The administration of Mr. Roy as President of Louisiana State Normal College is drawing to a close, and President elect W. W. Tison will soon enter upon his official duties as President. It is not necessary for me here to eulogize President Roy either as an upstanding Christian gentleman or as President of the Normal Col- lege. His record speaks for itself. Our intimate friend- ship is also known to all. Nor is it necessary for me here to enlarge either upon the ability or integrity of his successor, Mr. W. W. Tison. His record as a member of the faculty of the Normal College has sufficiently proved both of these most important marks of character. In a period such as we are now passing through, there is almost sure to be some unrest and uncertainty. And so my message to you at this time is one of loyalty to the Normal College. The college has a service to perform to the citizenship of the state. This service can be performed by no other. So let us remember that come what may, and regardless of personal feelings or opinions, the welfare of the college is supreme over every other consideration. And let us all unite in loyal support of the College and its new President. —H. Lee Prather WiVJf W. W. Tison William White Tison, president-elect of the Louisiana State Normal college here, is a native of Louisiana. He was born at Colfax, Grant Parish, in 1884. He was educated in the public schools of Grant Parish and was graduated from the two-year class of the Louisiana State Normal school at Natchitoches in 1904. He recevied his A. B. degree from the Louisiana State University in 1914 and his M. S. degree from the University of Chicago in 1925. Mr. Tison has taught in the public schools of the state for 25 years. Three years were spent teaching in the grades, 10 as high school principal, and 12 as professor of chemistry at the State Normal College, which he is now to head. He taught chemistry one term at Peabody College. President-elect Tison was made a member of the teaching staff of the college in 1917, and from that time he has served as the head of the department of chemistry. He is popular among both students and faculty at the State Normal college. His election came as a surprise to most of his most intimate friends as it was not generally known that he would be consider-d by the board. A. G. ALEXANDER B. L. International College; A. B., A. M.

Sponsor Senior Day The Senior Class at the Louisiana State Normal College was officially recognized by the authorities of the college as candidates for the Bachelor of Arts degree in an investiture service Friday November 16, when the eighty-seven members of the four year class made their first appearance as a class. Attired in the robes so symbolic of dignity, the eighty-seven young men and women, at assembly hour, entered the auditorium marching to the strains of the Processional. At the end of the program each member of the class was invested with his cap by President Roy. At noon that Friday the Seniors were entertained with a banquet in the Dining Hall. Then Friday evening the annual Senior reception was given in Social Hall where gaiety reigned supreme. Thus ended the day for the Seniors at the Louisiana State Normal College, a day which is destined to become traditional, and one which, through the years to come, will establish a stronger tic between students and their Alma Mater.

At the beginning of each Fall term, the preceding week-end is called Freshman Days. Students who are members of either of the three religious organization Cabinets, the Purple Jacket Club, and the Freshmen Commission return for these days so that they may join the faculty in exerting every possible effort to serve the Freshies during their first few days on the Hill. These older students strive to acquaint the new students with the rules and regulations of the college and with the various campus organizations and activities. It is their purpose to assist the Freshmen in selecting their courses and in other problems the new-comers face. During Freshman Days last year the entire group of Freshmen were entertained with a party on Saturday night where they met many members of the faculty and older, prominent students. On Sunday morning they were taken to the church of their choice, and in the afternoon they were driven to nearby historic points of interest. Monday they registered and classified.

Come here! Hurry! I got him! I got him! Our adventurer was a red-headed, freckled-faced, typical American boy of ten summers. When Bill, the character addressed in such excited tones, reached his buddy, he found him squatting on the ground and clutching tightly in his chubby arms his old straw hat as if life itself depended upon his keeping a single ray of sunlight from entering it. " Whatcha got, Bob? " said Bill in a half muttered tone as he knelt beside his chum. " Gee, I don ' t know ' xactly, Bill; but it sure is a beauty, " exclaimed the capturer. " Let ' s take a peep at it, " said Bill, and then remembering the time his little sister was stung by a scorpion that she had picked up, he quickly added, " Do you think it will bite a feller? " Bob assured him that he did not think the find was of the biting kind, and by slow degrees the old hat was opened far enough to allow them to get a glimpse of the object. The emission of light into the hat caused their captive to flutter its wings rapidly and then it nestled on the side of the old hat long enough for them to get a good view of it. . Oh, boy! Say that it some butterfly, now ain ' t it? " Let ' s take it to the ' Fesser. I ' ll bet he ' d be tickled to death to get it for his collection, don ' t you? " said Bill, almost breathless with excitement. Bob nodded assent at the same time holding the old hat closer than ever, and together they started toward the ' Fessers ' house as fast as their little fat legs could carry them. The butterfly was a perfect specimen of a beautiful Luna moth that had a few minutes before emerged from its cocoon, and the ' Fesser ' was Professor George Williamson of the science department, State Normal College, Natchitoches, Louisiana. The day before Professor Williamson had talked to the fifth grade boys and girls in the Normal Practice School about bugs, and Bill and Bob had become so interested and inspired that they had started out the next morning on an observation trip of their own which had ended rather suddenly with great success. For half a century Professor George Williamson has been touching the heartstrings of boys and girls; he has spent the best years of his life as a teacher in the public schools of Louisiana. Singular is the fact, indeed, that neither the contents of his lessons nor the methods of his presentation are found in textbooks; they are both taken from life. A trip to the home of this great teacher; his explanations of his Indian relics whch have gained for him a national reputation; a walk with him through his gardens— all savor of the fact that he is wrapped in the things found not in books but in life itself. Any evening after his day ' s work in the classroom is complete, you may find him at his home surrounded, perhaps by a group of college boys and girls from his classes. Some little children of the neighborhood may have been lured in by his magical candy box which is never empty. Others may have come to chat with him about subjects that vary in scope from the history of the land of the Natchitoches Indian to that of the best time to set out pansy plants. Now that spring has come in Louisiana bringing with it new forms of life in flowers, birds, and insects, Professor Williamson is confronted at every turn by boys and girls who have discovered something and who want him to set them aright. The other day a little boy came running to him with a big grasshopper squeezed nearly to death in his little hand and pleaded, " Fesser, please make this old bug spit for me, won ' t you? Some of the boys said it would. " Another, a little girl of six, wanted to know if birds went to school in the winter time to learn how to build nests in the spring. A third demanded that the ' Fesser ' explain if the little buttercups ever had dreams while they slept in their cozy little homes all winter, and a fourth wanted to know what the tall pines were saying when the wind blew through their branches. And this true teacher, wise in years of experience with the minds of boys and girls, answered, as he always does, their entreaties and demands to their satisfaction. To receive inspiration from one like this man is the greatest blessing that can come into the life of a boy or girl, and to instruct and inspire youth to choose the best in life is, undoubtedly, the richest heritage of a man ' s or woman ' s life. President ' s Old Home Old Residence of President Is of Historic Interest flHE. historic plantation home that has been the residence of the president of the Louisiana State Normal college for 40 years has been dismantled to provide space for a new home of the college head on the campus. The old house, more than a century old, is of extreme historic importance because of the fact that before and during the Mexican War it was in all probability the headquarters of General U. S. Grant and Zachary Taylor. Tradition also has it that Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee were visitors here before the Mexican War and were domiciled in the old home. During the Civil War, the old post again came into the limelight, this time as a hospital for wounded Confederate soldiers. Many of the wounded grey-clad soldiers of the battles of Mansfield and Pleasant Hill were nursed back to health by the Sacred Hearts nuns at the old convent here. In 1888, after the property was purchased by the state and the State Normal School was established here, Colonel Thomas D. Boyd, then head of the school, remodeled the old house, and since that time it has been the residence of the presidents of the college, Colonel Boyd, B. C. Caldwell, James B. Aswell, and V. L. Roy. The mantlepiece in the bedroom, in which the historic figures of the Mexican and Civil Wars are said to have slept during their stay at the army post here, has been presented to Mrs. J. H. Henry of Melrose to be placed among other anti-bellum relics in the quaint adobe house which was used during the Civil War as a hospital for negro slaves and which is now known as the " Author ' s Home " on her plantation. The new residence of the college head faces the Jefferson Highway on one side and the academic court of the college on the other. It is a commodious dwelling of early Elizabethan architecture to harmonize with other buildings on the campus. Students at State Normal Have Old Tradition !HE thril ' s of tradition will never die. Fiom savagery up through all the stages of civilization, tribes have passed on through the generations tradi- tion and folk-lore that will continue to live so long as the world stands. No matter how ignorant or how well educated a people may be there still lingers the thrill of the romance as it is related around the campfire or the hearth. But the students of Louisiana State Normal College at Natchitoches have a tradition all their own as old as as the college itself. Perhaps it may be said to be older than the college, for it really had its origin nearly a half century ago when in place of the stately and massive buildings that dot the beautiful campus of the college now, large columns at the front, which had been remodeled into a con- vent, and when there stood an old plantation home of the pre-war type with four instead of the old Pine Hills that border the campus on either side echoing back the happy voices of over a thousand of Louisiana ' s girls there was heard only the low murmuring sound of the black garbed nuns as they went up and down the old river drive saying their beads. Every coed at the Normal knows the story only too well; she is told the story at a time in her stay at the college when it becomes deeply rooted never to be erased from her memory. Usually during her first week at the college when her little heart is nearly breaking from the pangs of homesickness, she is awakened in the dead hours of the night by a light weird tap, tap on her door and almost instantly a figure clothed in white enters and announces these blood curdling words that have sent the face white and the heart pounding of all Normal Coeds. " I am the ghost of East Hall. " The story goes that a beautiful girl, daughter of one of Louisiana ' s proudest families, fell deeply in love with a young man from the east who had been sent to Louisiana to investigate the lumber industry of the state for his father who had invested some capital. The two young people became engaged; but the father of the young man, thinking that his son was too young and unsettled, sent him abroad to forget his love affair in the South. Several letters were exchanged secretly, and finally the young man became frantic and slipped aboard a steamer at Paris as a stoaway. The boat was wrecked on its voyage to America, but the young man was miraculously cast with ten others of the crew upon an island. Days, weeks and months passed before the little band of unfortunates were able to flag a steamer. All this time the boy ' s sweetheart was waiting impatiently for word from him. Finally, she gave up is despair, and thinking that he had been untrue to her, took ihe veil of the Catholic nun, and was sent to the convent at old Natchitoches. In the meantime her lover returned and hastened to her home in Louisiana only to find her pledged to live life unwedded. Determined to get a glimpse of her once more, he journeyed to Natchitoches and her on the little road that extends from the old convent site to the river. He pledged his vows anew, at the same time knowing that they were in vain. The strain was too much for the nun. Slipping quietly from her associates, she crept to the attic of the oid building and took her life. As she removed the dagger from her heart, the gush of blood that followed stained her hand, which as she swooned, left the bloody imprint of her fingers on the wall of East Hall. So lives the tradition of the Louisiana State Normal College. And unsus- pecting freshmen of the future will not miss the (hrill of the visit of the Ghost of East Hall. POU Dairy Snapshots T mm H Is ♦f»i o W ][ Many Students Take Agriculture Course IXTY-SIX students of the Louisiana State Normal College are enrolled in the agriculture course and 12 young men are working their way through the college by working on the college farm which is composed of 450 acres, according to Prof. A. A. Fredericks, head of the department of agriculture and farm manager at the teacher ' s college. The agricultural department at the Natchitoches College has six distinct enter- prises---dairy, creamery, garden, poultry, hog, and the farm proper. All of these departments are operated on a commercial basis and are used as laboratories for the teaching of agriculture in the college. The Normal college dairy consists of 150 pure bred Jerseys of high production, a ninety cow concrete dairy barn, two 1 50 tons silos, two large hay barns and a calf barn. The dairy is equipped with a modern combination cow washer and automatic filler and capping milk bottling machine, separators, and butter and cheese making machinery. More than 200 gallons of milk are produced daily, all of which is sold either in bottles or in the form of milk products to the Normal Boarding Club which is operated under the auspices of the college. The dairy laboratory consists of all the equipment necessary for testing milk, cream, butter, cheese, and ice cream. The bull calves are placed with farmers over the state for foundation stock free. An accurate record is kept of each cow so that those that are mere boarders may be tested and eliminated from the heard. The creamery consists of 200 pound churn driven by an electric motor, a pasteurizer with a capacity of 100 gallons, a culture incubator, and a butter printing machine. The poultry department is composed of two brooders, four hen laying houses, three colony houses, and an incubator house. More than 1,000 hens are kept on the college poultry farm. Students taking the poultry course at the teacher ' s college are required to do all the work in conjunction with incubating, brooding, feeding, selecting, and managing. Ten acres comprise the garden plot of the college on which most of the vegetables are grown for the Normal Boarding Club. During drouths a system of irrigation is used by the departments. More than 150 hogs are kept on the college farm during all periods of the year. The breeds kept are of the Duroc Jersey and Hampshire type. All refuse from the college dining hall is fed the hogs kept on the farm. 250 acres of the college farm are under cultivation, and 200 acres are in pasture and hay meadows. Corn, soy beans, sweet potatoes, and Irish potatoes are grown on the farm. Most of the work on the farm is done by men in the department of agriculture. ■ •■■»» St. Denis Rock Many Normal students have over- looked one of the most interesting phases of the college---its traditions. It should be of interest to Normalites to know som ething of the founder of Natchitoches, the young officer who had his headquarters here over two centuries ago, and whose home stood where the St. Denis rock under ihe arbor is now placed. During the early days of the settle- Lment of the United States, Louisiana . ' consisted of the land between Canada and Mexico, bounded on the east by P0P Carolina. The French, who then - ( owned Louisiana, had heard that the Spaniards from Mexico intended taking possession of this region. To prevent Spanish interference, in 1714 Lamothe Cadillac, governor of Louisiana, sent Juchereau de St. Denis, a young Frenchman, to establish a post on Red River. St. Denis, a dashing adventurer, with a brand of Canadian soldiers, placed a garrison at Natchitoches. This was the first permanent settlement within the present limits of Louisiana. St. Denis, who had not yet satisfied his longings for risk and daring, set out with a few companions into Mexico to see the possibilities of development of trade with that province. Spanish authorities had refused to allow French agents to enter Mexico; consequently St. Denis was seized and sent to Mexico, and was finally allowed to return to Mobile, after two years ' absence. On a map of Natchitoches, the old French post was founded with a spot marked " habita- tion. " This spot corresponds almost exactly to the location found by surveyors who drew lines along the river and in Natchitoches to determine the site of St. Denis ' s home. This was considered sufficient proof, and a rock was placed on the spot under the arbor in front of Caldwell Hall to mark the place where once lived the man who led such an adventurous life; who, in an effort to protect his country ' s interests, established a post, the oldest city in the Louisiana Purchase. We are proud of the rock that reminds us of St. Denis, founder of Natchitoches. tiW m CL mML « fere ' s?

SS The Purple Jacket Club The Purple Jacket Club was organized under the supervision of President Roy in 1926, since which time it has maintained a position of respect, trust and leadership on the campus through its work as an organization. The membership of the club is limited to 1 5 or 16 members, the names of whom are finally revealed during each spring term, after numerous nominations are made by the club and a specified number of nominees is selected by a committee which consists of Presi- dent Roy, the Dean of Women, and several faculty members. The club ' s only officers are a leader and a secretary. Miss Mabel Callender, of Haynesville, a foremost figure in every campus activity and every student move- ment toward a greater and better Normal, for the last two years has been the club ' s efficient and worthy leader. During the past college session of 1928-29 under her leadership, the members of the club have donned their purple jackets and successfully functioned on all special occasions including Freshman days, gradua- tion, lyceums, and rallies, as well as at other events. There are ideals and traditions about the campus that must be upheld as there are morals and standards that must be set. So it is that there must be a group upon which the responsibilty chiefly rests, and the members of the Purple Jacket Club constitute that group. Therein lies the justification of their name, LEADERS. Loyalty to their Alma Mater, clean nand noble characters, and whole-hearted en- trance into college activities — these are characteristics of the personnel of Normal ' s liveliest organization because the girls honored with membership in it strive to set an example not, of course of perfection, but of whatever approaches perfection in character and ideals. Because these girls are deemed trust-worthy, loyal, scholarly, enthusiastic, and entirely worthy of so great an honor— and yet so great a responsibility— they have a trust to fill, a pledge to live up to, for Normal expects them to exemplify all that is finest, all that is noblest, all that is purest, all that is highest, all that is BEST among her students. 20 POTPOURRI JEHfeT Mabel Callender, Editor Marguerite Teer, Business Manager Potpourri Staff Mabel Callender Editor-in-Chief Rita Hamilton Assistant Editor Marguerite Teer Business Manager Edwin Miller Assistant Business Manager Bess Fitzgerald Literary Editor Erla Easley Assistant Literary Editor Nell Glass Art Editor Una Lee Wallace Assistant Art Editor Ruth Gump Organization Editor Clayton Cornish Sports Editor Nelle Avery Snap Shot Editor Joy Peters Typist Potpc The first annual of the Louisiana State Normal College was published in 1909. During the twenty years of its existence vast changes have been made in its contents, size, arrange- ments, and appearance. Each year ' s book has shown improvement over the one before and so prgoress and development have been most evident. The books usually come off the press during the last part of the Spring Term. For several years now the price has remained four dollars ($4.00). The interesting feature, however, about the purchase of the book is that unlike most other university or college systems, students are not compelled to buy them, but rather the purchase is voluntary. That is to say that instead of the annual ' s subscription price being included in any fee exacted during the college session, a special Left to right: Fitzgerald, Gump, Glass, Cornish, Avery, Hamilton, Easley, Wallace, Peters, Miller subscription campaign is conducted by the business department of the staff at whatever time of the year circumstances make such a campaign most expedient. The tremendous cost of the annual is met each year by the several sources of financial support, chief among which are the advertisements, both local and foreign, and the sale of books. The publication of the Potpourri is not a business enterprise, and staff members receive no compensation, either financial, or in the way of college credit, except the pleasure of service for their college. At the beginning of each year, the budget is carefully worked out; and the manager attempts only to stay within that budget. The editor and business manager for the next year are nominated by the old staff and approved by the student body each Spring Term, and other staff members are chosen later. Active work on the annual staff for three terms constitutes eligibility for Alpha Phi Gamma. Since 1923 when he came to Normal, Professor Ralph L. Ropp has been faculty sponsor of the Potpourri as well as for the Current Sauce. His thorough knowledge of the fundamentals of journalism coupled with his sympathetic and understanding attitude in all problems have inspired his staffs to greater efforts and broader work to make the Potpourri a greater and a better college annual.

It usually comes off the press at noon on Thursdays and is circulated in the dormitories during the afternoon. The circulation department sends copies to leading universities and colleges all over the country as well as to many Louisiana High Schools. Left to right: Easley, Walker, Alexander, Chambers, Edmondson, Garland, Peters, D odd, Stovall, Perini, Crozier, Johns, McSpadden.Dubus, Teer, Whittington, LeBlanc. The Current Sauce is a standard size four page paper, well written and edited. Besides the leading news articles, editorials, and sport and society sections, there are included in every issue a number of features as the Sauce Pan, Greek Notes, Who ' s Who, and Demon Screams. No advertisements are included. Each student pays for his Current Sauce subscription when he registers and the percentage obtained from the student tickets is the sole basis of financial support for the publication. The staff meetings are held on Friday afternoons in the Office of Publications. After the material is written and edited, it is sent to press. Proof is read the first of the following week and then by Thursday the papers are ready for distribution. The editor of the Current Sauce is elected each year at the end of the Spring term. The individual selected must be classified as a junior, at least, and must be a student familiar with the fundamentals of journalism. The remaining staff is chosen by the editor and several advisers the following fall term. The current Sauce is edited in strict accordance with journalistic regula- tions and is a publication of high collegiate rank. Members of the staff are not awarded college credits. Those members, however, who do efficient work for a specified number of terms, become eligible for Alpha Phi Gamma, honorary journalistic fraternity.

Normal Press Association The Normal Press Association was organized at Louisana State Normal College during the fall of 1925 as the " Normal Booster Club, " the name being changed in 1 926 to the Normal Press Association. The organization has for its purpose the dissemination of news pertaining to the activities of Louisiana State Normal College by means of the weekly press throughout the state. In order that the high school students of the state may be- come acquainted with the activities of the college, news items concerning the various departments of the institution are sent to the several newspapers. Meetings are held every Thursday evening at which time news notes regard- ing the coK ' ege are outlined, and fundamental points in journalism are discussed by the faculty advisor, Mr. R. L. Ropp, and by leading students of the department of Journalism. Miss Erla Easley, of Goldonna is president of the club this year, with Miss Jeanne AJIeman, of Napoleonville, vice-president, and Miss Grace Walker, of Morgan Citiy, secretary and treasurer.

Later in the winter of 1928 Sigma Sigma Sigma was founded at Normal, and with the installation of Alpha Zeta Chapter, the organization of the first Panhellenic association was made possible. This organi- zation was completed February 17, 1928, with Miss Miriam Beary, president of Delta Sigma Epsilon, its first president, and Miss Martha Litchfield, president of Sigma Sigma Sigma, secre- tary. Since that time however, three other sororities have been established on the campus, so now Panhellenic is an association of all sororities on the campus, each chapter having its President and two representatives present at the business meetings. Office in the Panhellenic Association is held by rotation, according to the sequence in which the sororities were installed at the State Normal College. In bringing together the different sororities, the Panhellenic aids in solving sorority matters and in promoting a spirit of inter-sorority sisterhood by encouraging cooperation in the solving of mutual problems. The Panhellenic Association is one means of maintaining the high standards of the institution, in that it strengthens school spirit and fosters high scholarship.

Bailiff The Iota Chapter of Alpha Phi Gamma, national honorary journalistic fra- ternity, was established at Louisiana S tate Norma College, March 14, 1927, when tweleve students were made charter members of this distinctive organization. Alpha Phi Gamma is the only national honorary journalistic fraternity that admits both men and women. Professor R. L. Ropp, member of Alpha chapter, was at one time national president of the organization. The State Normal College is the only college south of the Mason and Dixon line that has a chapter of Alpha Phi Gamma. To promote journalistic endeavors is the fundamental aim of the honorary fraternity. Iota chapter fosters the Press Association at the State Normal College, which has for its purpose the dissemination of news pertaining to the college, throughout the state, in the weekly press of Louisiana. The national! conclave of Alpha Phi Gamma was held last year at the University of Akron, Akron, Ohio, with the members of Beta Chapter as hosts. Bess Fitzgerald was the delegate representing Iota Chapter. At this convention, she was made chairman of the nominating committee and also chairman of the committee relative to the " Black and White, " the national publication of Alpha Phi Gamma. Besides these recognitions, she merited the distinction of being the delegate who had traveled the greatest number of miles to attend the convention.

While Nu Chapter is com- paratively young, it is composed of the members of Sigma Delta Tau, which was the first and for a long time the only Fraternity at the Normal. Sigma Tau Gamma, is composed of chapters in Teachers Colleges and Normal Schools of standard collegiate rank, and is distinguished by being the oldest fraternity of its kind in the country. Its purpose is to establish a more intimate relationship and brotherhood among its members and serve in every way as an uplifting factor in their lives. Like the Fraternity from which it emerged Nu Chapter has a standard in which it demands only the best men as its members. It is necessary for them to reach a moral and scholastic attainment before being accepted.

The Newman Club The Newman Club of Louisiana State Normal College is a Catholic students ' club which is affiliated with the National Federation of College Catholic Clubs in non-sectarian institutions throughout the United States and Canada. In order of their emphasis the purposes of this Newman Club are to develop the spiritual lives of the students, foster their religious instruction, and lend direction to their social lives as students. Each year national conventions are held and since the local club ' s organization in 1925, it has been adequately represented at these conventions. The delegates who attended the last one, held in Toronto, Canada last summer, were Wynonah Genius and Martha Becnel, both of whom are active members of this year ' s cabinet. In 1928, a Gulf State Province, an organization which also holds a national convention, was organized. At the first convention held last fall in Austin, Texas, the local club ' s delegates were Bess Fitzgerald, Mildred Crozier, Jeanne Alleman and Nora O ' Neil. During the con- vention Miss Fitzgerald was elected secretary of the province, and Miss Aline Marks, an alumna of the Normal, was made the province ' s editor for the national publication " Newman News. " To the foremost leaders of the club each year there are presented Honor Keys. The keys for 1927-28 were awarded to Miriam Beary and Aline Marks, two prominent officers of the club. FRESHMAN RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION COMMISSION Left to right: Stovall, Templet, Guise, McGinty, Abshire, Amy, Mayes, Miller, BUFFINGTON, GeOGHAGAN, INABET, ALEXANDER. Thera Stovall Lora Mayes Louise Buffington President Vice-President Secretary; and Treasurer The Freshman Religious Organization Commission was instituted at Louisiana State Normal College, April 16, 1927. The members of the commission are selected by the religious organizations from their freshman membership on a basis of service to their respective organi- zations and to their college. No freshman is eligible who has not attained a high scholastic average. The charter members of the commission were concerned chiefly with drawing up a constitution and its by-laws and of cooperation with the religious organizations in promoting the realization of the great aims fostered by them. Naturally the most important work of the year is the assistance offered the new students on the hill at the beginning of the Fall Term. Since that time this year, however the com- mission has given two programs, one religious, the other literary; has entertained the Religious Council ; and has written to commissions on other college campuses, for plans in an effort to find new ways of serving more efficiently. The Freshman Commission ' s most important aim, certainly has been to instill into the hearts of the new students a spirit of love, loyalty and good fellowship for their school, and toward their fellow students. Wtk Y. M. C. A. CABINET Left to right: McGinty. Aiken. Miller. Burris. Howes. Maddox, Tarlton. Edwards. Hamilton, Ft ton, Cornish, Hawthorne, Clevenger. Young Men ' s Christian Association The only organization for men on the campus that practices religious life is the Y. M. C. A. It has a membership cf about fifty boys who are banded to- gether for the purpose of character building. The foremost purposes of the Y. M. C. A. are to lead students to faith in God through Christ; to put their membership and services in some church: to promote faith through the study of the Bible and through prayer; and to put forth a united effort to do the will of God. The Y. M. C. A. of Louisiana State Normal College is one of the most active organizations in the state. It tries to meet the religious, physical, economical and social needs of the students. As a proof of this more interest has been taken in the Y. M. C. A. this year than ever before. In the Sunday evening meetings enthusiastic discussions are held on educational topics and on vital things that con- front young men in college life. In addition to the discussions and talks led by the boys, there are other speakers who give their experiences in life and direct the boys thoughts not merely along the present routine of life but concerning the things that they shall have to face in the fu ' ure. These activities not only strengthen the boys ' moral virtues while in coi!ege, but they lay the foundation of a strong char- acter. They equip them and make them capable of meeting the future problems that they shall encounter when they go cut into the state to teach. Normal ' s Y. M. C. A. is not only functioning on its own campus but is rep- resented at conferences, conventions, and council meetings held all over the state. From these conferences comes the real life and progress of the Y. M. C. A. At these meetings problems are discussed and plans are made to carry on the future work more successfully. The Normal Association sent one delegate to Blue Ridge last year and is planning to send four limes that number this year. The Y. M. C. A. is a student movement strictly for uplifting worthwhile qualities of Christian life, and promoting fe ' lowship among the membership and fellowmen. Y. M. C.

Faculty Members The Baptist Student Union was first organized at Louisiana State Normal College on February 22, 1923 by Miss Louise Foreman, Southern Bap- tist Traveling Secretary. It was reorganized in June, 1926, under the leadership of Miss Lucille Lloyd, Local Student Secretary. The purposes of the organization are to promote a better Christian Spirit on the Hill; to train students for church leadership; to foster religious education; to make Christ the Ma ster of our generation; and to carry high the banner, " Onward, Upward, and Forward. " The B. S. U. attempts to study and solve the problems of the Baptist students here. It broadens its views in this phase of its work, as well as in others, by com- municating with other colleges, and learning not only what their problems are but also how they are being solved. This is partly accompished by sending dele- gates to the Southern Baptist Student Conventions, state and interstate. To these con- ferences, delegates are sent from all the colleges in the Southern Union. The Louisi- ana Baptist Student Convention was held in Natchitoches, November 23 to 25, 1928. There were twenty delegates from the local B. S. U. including all the members of the council. All Baptist students of the college automatically become members of the local union upon entering school. OTP EVANGELINE CHOIR The Evangeline Choir First Baptist Church J. V. TlNNlN, Pastor " Let me Write the songs of the nation and I care not who mafyes its laws ' Old Proverb. The Evangeline Choir of the First Baptist Church of Natchitoches, with a membership of 73, is composed chiefly of students of the State Normal College and is reputed to be the largest organization of its kind in Louisiana. Th choir was organized in 1925 by J. V. Tinnin for the purpose of inter- esting young people in church activities and to promote better church music. He has been assisted in this remarkable work by Mr. Judson L. Baker, a local business man, who serves as chairman of the music committee. Since its organiza- tion the Evangeline choir has sung twice before the State Baptist Convention and it appears annually in spring concerts at Shreveport and Alexandria. In addition to the excellent training the choir members receive under the direction of their talented director, Miss Blanch Toy, a member of the music faculty of the State Normal College, the church expresses its appreciation for the faithful efforts of the young people by giving them annually a sumptuous chicken barbecue, a Christmas tree, and other social functions throughout the year. The choir season lasts ten months and in its four years of service it has never been known for less than thirty-two members to be present, regardless of weather conditions. The esprit de corps of the choir is best summarized by using the words of Mr. Tinnin who, in introducing the Evangeline choir to a radio audience, said, " not every member is a great singer, but every singer is a great member. " HIA ' E RIDGE DELEGATES McSpadden, Miller, White, Vernon " Sunlight is streaming from the mountain height. Earth ' s radiant loveliness thrills with her youth. Moonlight falls over the Waters, And Blue Ridge is calling to follow the truth. " Blue Ridge! A place of inspiration to all those who are so fortunate as to go there. One seems closer to the Creator of mankind, when looking out o ' er the purple mountain tops, where he seems to visualize the wonders of nature and to understand the workings of God.

In thy smiles and thy tears, In thy hopes and fears, My solace is thine: I am Music Divine! My child! Foremost among the organizations in the Music Department of the college is the Choral Club. By means of it, the students receive excellent training in the field of voice training and ensemble singing. Much enjoyment is experienced by members through the singing of anthems, cantatas, oratorios, and secular choruses, many performances being given during the year. The group is composed of about fifty young men and young women who are under the leadership of Mr. S. E. Steward. Through his untiring efforts and the enthusiasm and ability of the students, noteworthy progress has been achieved. pounni i SAX-X-SOMBLE Sax-n-Somble During the winter term, under the direction of Misses Blanche and Florence Toy, a musical organization— really a Saxaphone Orchestra— was organized. The majority of its members are, of course, students who are enrolled in the Music Course at Normal, and who are Saxaphone pupils of Miss Toy. They meet on Monday and Wednesday nights to practice classical numbers together. The Sax-n-somble programs have been greatly enjoyed by those who have been privi- leged to hear them. n 1 Seekers After Knowledge Literary Society Division I OFFICERS Fall Term Rita Hamilton President Bess Fitzgerald Vice-President Thera Stovall Secretary Annie Mae Dubus Treasurer Winter Term Claire Reisner President Frances Nelle Avery Vice-President Velma Parker Secretary Elaine Smith Treasurer Spring Term Frances Nelle Avery President Narvis Almand Vice-President Elizabeth Dalton Secretary Marguerite Nettles Treasurer The Seekers After Knowledge Literary Society is the oldest literary society on the hill.

The French Club is especially interesting to the members because there are so many French speaking students here on our campus, a great many of whom are enrolled in the French course and who are members of the French Club where their command of the language is especially valuable to non-French speaking participants. The Club is under the able direction of Miss Germaine Porter, who has that unusual faculty of making others enthusiastic about those things around which her own interest center. She is fully capable of managing any organization, and under her able guidance the French Club has become not only a beneficial but an enjoyable extra curricula activity.

Press Reporter The Euthenics Club is an organization which has in its enrollment members of the Home Economics department. On November 7, 1926, the club met and organized at Louisiana State Normal College. The aim of the club constitutes three primary purposes. Its first and foremost purpose is to promote a professional spirit. Besides, however, it seeks to cultivate and foster sociability as well as to develop culture. Miss Grace Dexter, head of the Home Economics Department, acts as faculty advisor, and it is with her splendid cooperation and willingness, that the club strives to uphold the highest ideals for which it stands. The Euthenics Club of Louisiana State Normal College holds member- ship in the National Home Economics Association, and also sends delegates to the National Convention. Gertrude Dalton and Shirley Wren represented the club at the convention held in Des Moines, Iowa, last year. The word Euthenics signifies better environment and right living, and its significance is such that the club endeavors to encourage higher standards by pro- moting a scientific knowledge of the art and love of homemaking.

Their pur- pose is to tiain students in literary society work thoroughly enough so that they will be capable of efficient work in the senior societies. At first all freshmen were required to have one year of this work for three consecutive terms. Now, however, only two freshman society credits are required, and so at the beginning of the spring term the freshman becomes a member of an upper society. The entire freshman group this year was divided into seven sections, and each section was under the supervsion of a faculty adviser. The work in each of the seven groups included training in parliamentary law procedure, program-building, stage presence, and widening of the fields of general information. Every term each section fosters a dramatic production in which the members of the respective sections participate. The entire Freshman Literary Society organization is under the direction of Miss Annie Laurie Pujos, assistant professor of English at the college, who merits commendation for her efficient supervision of the work. The training of the freshman society work is considered by authorities at the college as being invaluable. Freshman Literary Society Group One OFFICERS Fall Term Lucille Berry ....

The club is under the able direction of Miss Mary Francis Davis, assistant professor of English and Dramatic Art, for whom it was named the " Davis Players. " The purpose of the club is to present plays for the entertainment of the student body at large, and to develop that dramatic talent which may appear among the students from year to year. The personnel of the club this year was almost completely changed due to the graduation of many former members. The Dramatic Club presents at least one play every term for the students and usually presents it in several towns throughout Louisiana. Some of the most significant plays which have been given are: " Midsummer Night ' s Dream, " " Twelfth Night, " " A Lucky Break, " " He Who Gets Slapped, " Mr. Prim Passes By, " and " The Romantic Young Lady. " In addition to the four term plays, the Davis Players have also produced each year three original plays, written by students of the Normal in the Lesche Annual Playwriting Contest. This year a Playwriters Club was organized under the auspices of the Dramatic Club. Four plays have been written ihis year. Hilda Perini whose play, " La Tetue, " merited first place in the Lesche Playwriting Contest i n 1928, has written two plays.

" POTPOURRI I I9Q9 POTPC DEB A TERS glio: 929 POTPOIH Debating and Its Importance Since the earliest days of civilization, the ability to speak, to reason, and to think while speaking has been recognized as a necessity especially by men and women whose vocations have been to guide and instruct others. As future teachers, we cannot afford to overlook this valuable teaching asset. It should be our purpose to develop the field of forensics even further than we have heretofore. No extra-curricular activity has more educational value than debating has. Only the future can possibly show the benefits reaped from participation in the field of debating. The college trained debater of today shall be the guide of the mass in the problems of tomorrow. Let us then not allow this art to sink into oblivion. " We have the material at Louisiana State Normal College for the making of A-l debate teams. The teams this year have worked hard and have benefitted from their labors. It is hoped that in the future students at the State Normal will catch the inspiration and make their college foremost in the field of debating. Ml 1929 POTPOURRI Athletics I H. Lee Prather Dr. C. C.

I. A. A. Circles in State The Louisiana State Normal College Demon Quintet finished first in S. I. A. A. circles in this division. The demons won 1 1 games out of 1 6 played in the S. I. A. A. Out of 22 games played this season. Coach Prather ' s five has dropped but six. The Demons started the season off with a bang, taking two contests in a walk-away from the Marshall College quintet of Marshall, Texas, 56 to 20 and 62 to 19. The next opponents were the Bulldogs of Southwestern at Lafayette, who invaded the Demon camp and split the bill with the Teacher ' s College five, the Normal squad taking the first, 43 to 19 and the Bulldogs the second, 29 to 32. Then the Demon quintet hit the road for the first time and were defeated in hard fought games by the Wildcat five of Pineville, 39 to 44, and 39 to 47. On the same trip the Normal squad defeated the Bulldogs of Lafayette decisively in two games, 32 to 21 , and 32 to 20. The next on the Normal bill was a series with Louisiana Tech of Ruston on the home floor when the demons sent the North Louisiana Bulldogs home with two defeats, 27 to 24. and 42 to 30. The Louisiana Wildcats then appeared on the scene for their first game with the Demons on their home floor and defeated Prather ' s five by a margin of one point, 33 to 34. At this stage the Normal five journeyed to the camp of the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks at Nacogdoches, where I hey split the series with the Texans, winning the first game, 50 to 37, but dropping the second, 31 to 43. Then came a long series of wins for the Demons on their local court. They won six straight contests before local fans, against the following squads: South- western Presbyterian University, 39 to 28; Louisiana College, 36 to 33; Centenary, 39 to 30; Mississippi College, 31 to 29; and Stephen F. Austin Normal 36 to 30 and 34 to 29. The seventh straight victory came when the Demons invaded the camp of the Centenary Gentlemen and re urned with a 43 to 30 win. Then in the last week of the season the Natchitoches college five broke even with the Tech squad at Ruston, the Bulldogs winning the firs ' , 29 to 26, but the Demons taking the second, 43 to 31. The Demon quintet entered the S. I. A. A. tournament at Jackson, Miss., where it was eliminated by the Choctaws of Mississippi College after it had defeated the Tech Bulldogs in the first bracket.

A. A. OFFICERS FOR 1928-29 Ann Cook President Martha Menefee Vice-President Mildred Kirklin Secretary Helen Mae Stephens Treasurer The local W. A. A , affiliated with the National Women ' s Athletic Associa- tion, was organized during the Winter term of 1925-26. Since then, under the leadership of Mrs. Thelma Z. Kyser and Miss Melba Bouanchaud, instructors in the Physical Education Department, and with its steadily increasing membership, it has been a decidedly influential organization on the campus. Membership in W. A. A. is open to any girl who wishes to join. Such a variety of SDorts is offered that she is sure to find one in which she may actively participate. In the Fall the annual initiation of the Freshmen is held. Are they given a warm welcome? Well, just ask a FRESHMAN ! Each year ' here are eight " N " sweaters awarded to the eight girls who have won the highest number of points in the inter-class contests and inter-society as well as in other aclivities sponsored by the association. At the end of the Spring term these girls, with the W. A. A. Cabinet members, have a week-end camp, on Cane River Lake. In addition to the regular Wednesday night dances, the Cotillion Club sponsors an annual Ha ' lowe ' en dance and a Carnival Ball. The annual W. A. A. circus offers much amusement, both for the spectators and members of the marvelous troup. This year " Brutus, " the wildest tame lion in captivity, had to be ruthlessly shot as he attacked his trainer. Thompie Thompson and Mabel Callender went to Nacogdoches as repre- sentatives for Normal al a Play Day held by the Stephen F. Austin W. A. A. They distinguished themselves in all sports in which they participated. They carried off honors in Tennis, both singles and doubles. This year our own W. A. A. sponsored a Play Day to which representatives from other W. A. A. ' s of Louisiana and several neighboring states were invited. 1929 POTPOURRI WAfMif ' itwrdM |E 3ffil929 POTPOURRI W. A. A.
