FOREWORD It has been the aim of the staff in producing this volume of the Stespean, to put within its pages the best and most enduring of college life ; to tell in a clever way, all its gayeties and miseries, its triumphs and defeats and everything else of interest which goes to make up a college year. We have put forth our best efforts and have given up hours to hard work which made us feel at the time as if we were having to give up all our joys in life. But forgetting the past, we take pleasure in presenting to our friends Volume IV of the Stespean, hoping that it may serve to brighten all the lovely memories of college clays. l 1 .!;!::;::: ' :!!!!! 1 !!: , " T urn " .

FRANKLIN, OUR PRESIDENT This is the man who has been building Union College and bringing the best to her ever since 1915. He lectures in Chapel in a most inspiring way, and would have us know that the best is none too good for Union and her mountain students. He is an excellent endowment speaker and knows how to get donations for colleges out of regular tightwads. He is a g ' reat believer in clean sports, and he shows everybody how to do it when he gets a croquet mallet in his hand. PROF. I. B. PEAVY Head of Normal Department The gentle pleading tones of his voice; the kindness that is daily exhibited in his face; the inexhaustible patience for which we are so thankful; the winning smile which he always wears and which one can never forget; the pleasing manner in which he presents his work; and the story that is sure to be forthcoming; all these, coupled with one of the noblest types of true citi- zenship and Christianity, go to show us how indispensable he is to our own happi- ness and success in school life. ABIGAIL E. WEEKS Miss Weeks has been with us longer than any other member of the faculty. Students, if you don ' t know her, get into some of her classes and you will soon learn what kind of teacher she is. The Senior Class will long remember Christopher Mor- ley and the modern essays we read under her instruction. Her great delight is hik- ing over the Cumberland Gap Mountains with the Junior or Senior Academy classes of Union College. .:.!!iiii;ii:iinmiit 12 THE STESPEAN niiiiniiiiinraiiiiii! i:. :;i i: :i ' i,iiiii!i:ii;r:::ii.::i,iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinii is ran liiiiiiiini!:; : ' , M.iiiiiniii rarararairara: rararainra rarara ; i ra raiiimrarairai PROFESSOR BOS " Still we gazed and still in wonder grew, that one small head could carry all he knew " To see him about the campus and in Chapel, he appears most quiet and unas- suming, but he hastily assures us that he feels more at home than some people seem to think. And really, he is lots of fun when you come to know him. It is in the class room that we learn to love and appreciate him. He is a fine addition to our faculty and we sincerely hope he will return next year. PROFESSOR VON WALDHEIM This is Miss Von Waldheim, the great- est champion of forlorn, homeless cats to be found on Union College Campus. Tabby and Thomas cease to be lonely and forlorn when they come within the radius of her sympathetic understanding of their physi- cal and spiritual needs. But jokes aside, Miss Von Waldheim is a woman of really remarkable culture; she is a far traveler in Europe; she not only speaks fluent French, German, Russian and English, but she thinks in any or all of them at once! It ' s a marvel to us how she does it, when we can ' t think in English, to say nothing of expressing ourselves, fluently in our moth- er tongue. MRS. FRANKLIN The busiest lady on the Faculty! She looks after the President first of all; she registers our grades, good and bad, too; she determines from her records whether we can graduate or not; she helps to keep the Social Committee sane; she ' s a high type teacher of English; she cares for her chil- dren and home, yet finds time for an undy- ing interest in all our most trivial under- takings. She does all this and still keeps a lovely Christian character. rarara . ■■ ■ ■ ■ ,1.1 .. " .11! .:: ■ ira ' . ' i ' ■ THE STESPEAN 13 r " Ml. ' ;;. , ' ' PROFESSOR HEWES Who is this? Well, dear old Professor Hewes; his gentle ways and kind words will win everyone. He devotes his whole time to the aid of the students. He always has a good word for us in Chapel. He is one of our faculty who can be depended upon at any time for good advice. His favorite pas- time is setting up experiments for his stu- dents in physical laboratory. We can ' t give Professor Hewes too much praise and honor. PROFESSOR FRANKLIN Dean Franklin is everybody ' s friend. He helps us out when we are getting on dangerous ground by giving us white per- mits. If you could hear him sing, and see his winning smile, you would fall in love with him just as every Union College stu- dent has done. Long may you live with us, Dean Franklin. PROFESSOR LUNDIN Dr. Lundin is our worthy history teach- er. Although she has been with us only this year, she has proved her ability to make us enjoy history. When she wants us to remember anything she always says, " Now don ' t you dare let this stick in your mind. " She often tells a good joke to help us remember some worth while incident but when she asks, " How many will some day have a Ph. D? " our hands refuse to go up. Ph. D .spells much hard work. i iN:i;i:r, i ' ' ' ' ,;r;;ii.;;n ihi, n;;;; is, is .hi i;,iiii.iii:nr ■ i ' ii- 14 THE STESPEAN :i„. ' ' :: ,11111! ::l ' lllil Illllllllllllllllll illlli! ' " I ..

She has taught us to make our own dresses, AND WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT? She has shown us that the toughest chicken can be cooked tender. She is a lover — yes, of all sports; walking after dark is her chief hobby. This is why she is so tall. One of her many characteristics is her beautiful nature. PROFESSOR NUNVAR Here is Professor Nunvar, head of the music department. He teaches violin and piano, and is director of the orchestra. He is always ready with a joke at any time. Altho he makes us practice and play un- til our fingers ache, we love him and are willing and anxious to please him. MRS. NUNVAR Mrs. Nunvar, our voice director. Ef- ficient? Yes. Willing? Yes. Modest? Yes. (She has never given us a solo in chapel yet). Reserved? Yes. Jolly? Yes. (She can see a joke a mile away). Hard worker? Yes. Her slogan is " Practice Makes Perfect. " Her gentle and commanding voice s ays in Glee Club, " Please sing those last lines again. Up! " and up we come with a big smile and sing it again. You do what she asks you to do. ■III... ran ■ . ■: ■ ■. r i " in mil ■■■nil I ..: , .■ i i ni ' i :..i iviiii ■.;. it c ... ..,■:, .: ' ,.: ' THE STESPEAN 15 in in niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii MISS FLEMMING Miss Flemming has a musical name as well as a musical talent . She is next to the Baby member of the Faculty, but she has acquired, even this young, a quiet, pleasing dignity that we all enjoy. When she plays, we wonder if it is the golden harps we hear. She even commands with her music, and we march out of chapel. Her smiles hide just beneath the surface, ready to beam out on you at any minute. MISS MURPHY Miss Murphy has been with us two years and everybody that comes in contact with her, is aware of the fact that she is full of pep. She greets you with a pleasant smile. She ' s a midget in size and has a way of her own of going downstairs, with a gay little bounce that includes two steps at a time. Her greatest joy consists in coach- ing plays, and we ' ll tell the world she ' s a master hand at it. PROFESSOR HUMFLEET Professor Humfleet is a normal teacher known all over Knox county, and much farther, as thoroly capable of doing the work he professes to do. He does it too. He usually carries a smiling face. If you want to see him looking like a farmer, you have only to walk up the Campus about 7:30 any morning except Monday — look for him then about 9:00. If you want to see him as a teacher you must attend the Normal at Un- ion College. .;:i!i ! i:ia:ii:i;:::i , :i:i; n:. . i 16 THE STESPEAN illllllimillll9llll.il : :..,. ' .

He roots at all the ball games, teaches the sub-acad- emy, and he causes us to get lots of blue slips about Chapel time. He is a man of even temper and high ideals, and to know him is to love him. MISS TAYLOR When you enter the office the first per- son to greet you with a pleasant smile is Miss Taylor. She is very busy with the 1,001 duties of her position, but she is nev- er too busy to find a place to put your money. We wonder how she finds time to keep up two studies; she ' s a faithful stu- dent of Physics and Latin this year, and she ' s faithful everywhere else, too. You can depend on it, she ' s always on her job. PROFESSOR TROSPER T-R-A-P! Yes, this is W. B. Trosper, our renowned coach of athletics, better known throughout Southeastern Kentucky and especially in Barbourville and Union College as " Trap. " He came to us from Sue Bennett Memorial in 1920 and since that time he has had much to do with mak- ing our winning teams in basketball and in other forms of school athletics. So efficient is his instruction that the Kentucky State Freshmen complimented us on playing the hardest and cleanest game out of the twen- ty-three they have played this vear. HUR- RAH FOR TRAP! 51. ' ' ' THE STESPEAN 17 MRS. MAE WALLACE This is Aunt Mae. the jolliest, most lov- able person on the campus. You never see her without her smile; her grey eyes can be serious, but are more often full of mis- chief for she likes fun and can take, as well as give, a good joke. She is always in a hurry too, but she is continually stopping to plan out all sorts of nice., pleasant sur- prises to give us at the table. Aunt Mae has been with us for six years, and we hope she will continue to make this her home. Long live Aunt Mae. MRS. HEWES This is our beloved matron of Speed Hall who feels her responsibility, and at the same time, does unto the girls as she would have them in authority do unto her. Mrs. Hewes has won a sacred place in the hearts of all the girls by her tender care, her keen sense of humor and her motherly disposi- tion. She is a prodigy. Her hobbies are imposing fines on girls for misplacing their clothing, having sales, giving the girl ' s neg- lected clothes to Mrs. Peavey for the poor, and answering the door bell. She is often seen in the Physics Class room where she shows us how to be model students. MR. HAUSER Gus is a jack-of-all-trades, and master of about ten-tenths of them. He is a me- chanic,: plumber and carpenter, painter, a paper hanger, cabinet maker, and at last reports was demonstrating his ability as a cook. He is always joking about some- thing; always has a smile for you. He has been head repairman of the school for four and one-half years, or, as he puts it, he " has wasted four and one-half years here. " Where a substitute for him could be found is a puzzle. !

C. be without her, after depending upon her for lo! these many years? Her voice is so sweet that, when she sings, the birds hush to listen. Yes, she sings, but she also works untir- ingly to learn to cook — she expects to need to cook many, many more times than she expects to sing.

We see her in the future in the Mission field wrapped up in her life wo rk, but she never will be too busy to play a game of rook. REV. O. W. MILLER " I dare do all that may become a man Who dares do more is none. " Mr. Miller comes to us from Cincinnati after studying law in Denver, graduating at Cincinnati University. He is our preach- er, philosopher and all round Senior. Altho Mrs. Miller says he is a very peculiar man, we have found that his peculiarities are commendable and fit in nicely with our student life. He is fine in every sense of the word; he stands for everything good and worth while; he even likes a good joke. His very presence challenges the best in his associates. In A ' s he shines, but in A- pluses he leads. Not only a new member was added to our Senior Class, but new strength in the Reverend Oscar W. Miller. 22 THE STESPEAN miililliiillil i ■■ ' ■:: -i limn in: . : 11111:11 SENIOR PROPHESY Inhambone, Portuguese East Africa, May 30, 1933. Dear Thelma : Ten years ago tonight — are you, too, thinking of it? — our commence- ment at old U. C, and to think you are the only one with whom I am in touch. I had an experience this afternoon which was a delicious treat for me, and about which I am going to tell you. I had been working faithfully all afternoon, on a project for my girls, when suddenly I realized I was in dire need of recreation. In a short time I was out in the cool of the evening, for it was almost sundown, and off for a hike over thru the neighboring kraal. I had been walking for half an hour when I came to the hut of an old crone, whom I sometimes visit. I crept in thru the door and found her busily stirring something in her big kettle, and humming weird incanta- tions. Immediately, I lealized it would not do to retrace my steps; in fact. I thought it an interesting situation. I seated myself on a pile of dried grass on one side of the room to see what she would do next. Not once did she look in my direction, but kept up her singing in that monotonous tone. Soon I began to tire of my posi- tion and started to rise. But when I did so, I was no longer in the hovel on this lonely kraal, but in your lovely little home in Corbin. You were preparing dinner and telling me all about your married life, how happy you and Bob were ; that it was so different from the dreams of your school days, and much happier. I arose from my chair to go into the next room, but suddenly found myself in a large auditorium, and none other than our beloved " Tay " sitting at the great organ. I sat entranced as her melodies pealed forth, and I heard it whispered around me that her fame was spreading, and that she was leaving in the fall for foreign parts. I remained to speak with her after the crowd had gone. I saw the same old smile coming toward me. I thought again of the long ago. Oh, Thel, Sarah looked beautiful ! As I reached to take her hand, I was no longer in the great auditorium, but in a doctor ' s office, in Buenos Aires, and none other than Dr. Tuggle, our former " Bear " was clasping my hand. He had been there three years, and was well established in his work. He invited me to go home with him and as we stepped into the car, it was suddenly transformed into a large church in New York. The preacher was none other than our former philosopher. Rev. 0. W. Miller. He had taken his Ph. D. at Columbia, had recovered his health and was now, where he longed to be. I congratulated him on his success. We went out of the church and getting into his car started for his home. Of course our conversation drifted to the class of ' 23; he had just received a letter from our former president, Francis, who was at the head of the Department of Education in Vanderbilt Uni- versity, and had a beautiful little home in the suburbs of the city. We were both silent for a few minutes, and I began to hear peculiar noises, which increased as we sped on our way. I began to wonder what it could be and turned to ask him. Alas ! I was no longer in the car, but on the pile of grass in the little hut. It was some seconds before I could take in my surroundings after such an experience. The old crone was still by her pot, but her singing had ceased. She gave me one of her smiles, and I thanked her for what she had done. I talked to her a few minutes and then I made my way back to my room to think once again about home. I expect to take my furlough in six months and then probably part of my vision will come true. With heaps of love, Reeda. KiiiiiniiiiiiiNiiiiii i:::n ■ aniiii!:: 1:1 n ' ■ " ., : : : . : iiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiinit THE STESPEAN 23 in iiiin.

Anybody can tell you; it is the College upper-classmen. We admit that other classes do what they can, but we never stop with such feeble attainments. We do all we can, and then attempt the impos- sible. For instance, our noble seniors have undertaken to keep order in the halls. Many and varied have been our activities this year. On October 31st we waved our magic wand and immediately there appeared ghosts, gypsies, Turks, queens and witches. We tapped our magic horns and there flowed forth doughnuts and cocoa in abundance for all the hungry spirits. In other words, the success of the Hallowe ' en celebration must be laid at our door. About this time we decided to have a little fun on our own hook, and to this end we took a trip to Cumberland Gap. Did we have fun? We didn ' t have anything else — but rain. We had lots of both ! It was on this expedition that we really discovered our class sponsor. Dr. Lundin. Is she a good sport? We ' ll say she is! The College Department can add to its laurels a resurrection of the dead. We have brought to life the old Philoneikean Literary Society, and we are doing our best to make it the peppy organization it once was. On Washington ' s birthday we killed two birds with one stone; we put on a ripping good chapel program, and got even with the faculty by letting chapel run over-time just as long as they sometimes do. Spring has now come and we are all getting ready to follow Professor Franklin ' s advice. He gave us a chapel talk in which he urged us to study the beauties of nature around us. Just wait ! There won ' t be much beauty about Cumberland Gap, Long Hill and Dishman Springs left undiscovered. We, of the College Department, are out for all we can get. To us, every tomorrow means a new today, which brings new fields to conquer. Violet Humfleet. ■ mi ■ !■ :■ ■ ■■:■ ' ' nnii l::i ' ii " i: ■ Illlllllilll: FRESHMAN CLASS THE STESPEAN 31 FRESHMEN CLASS HISTORY Rah! Rah! Rah! Freshmen! Freshmen, yes. We are twenty-one strong. Though we lost our title of dignified Seniors and began at the bottom again, we are climbing rapidly towards the more dignified title of College Seniors. Our Freshmen Class, the largest class of Freshies ever in Union, organized at the beginning of school with Milburn Taylor as President, Hatcher Miller, Vice President; Alice Whittington, Treasurer, and Harris Terrell, as Secretary. We are now proving our ability as Historians because we are digging into the early life of Barbourville. We are finding interesting facts that no other town can boast of. We think these should be recorded. We are confident that unless we can accomplish this great and glorious task suc- cessfully it can never be done by any other class. Many old pictures have been collected and many new ones are being made for this famous volume. Two copies will be kept for the library so that future knowledge seek- ers on this interesting subject can find any facts they wish to know. Addi- tions will be made to this volume as the history of the town grows. The class elected Rebecca Sawyer, Editor, and Thomas Hignite, Assistant Editor. We have had many good times together, but the most enjoyable trip we have had was our hike after chestnuts. Several members of the Faculty went with us. We did not find many chestnuts, but we explored all the rock beds and Spanish needle patches on Ballinger Hill. Just wait till good weather comes and then the Freshmen for good times, Yes.

To say " work " is to say it gently and mildly, but that ' s what we are doing. If it hasn ' t been an essay to read, it has been an essay to write; just about the time we have visions of a little leisure, we are aroused from our peaceful dreams by the mournful moans of a theme pleading in its humble way, to each individual, saying " Please write me up in your most cunning style; use only the words and phrases which will make me proud of my unusual quantity of qualities. Let me challenge all other themes; dress me so brilliantly that my worthy traits will predominate over all my unworthy ones, and help me to gain the tip-top place in your teacher ' s estimation, for when I am handed back to you, I must wear that honorable " A " Badge which every student smiles at when he sees it come his way. " We have forgotten that we ever had any hard work or any brain- racking times in our other three years of high school ; we have really learned to slip up on a difficult piece of work and tackle it without stop- ping to think there may be danger ahead. Those essays of Christopher Morley were one continuous round of pure digging and thinking. So was the Farewell Address and the Burns Essay. We all cling to the idea that we are the hardest working Senior Class that has ever been in Union College. Fortunately, or unfortunately, whichever way we choose to render it, the editing of the Stespean fell to our lot. Running over with enthusiasm the Seniors, large and small, took their share of the annual work, and we intend to put out the best annual Union College has published so far. This means we have heard many demands from the Editor and Censor for Senior write-ups, much nagging for the Faculty sketches, wills and his- tories. But yet with all this to vex us, we as a Senior Class do our work as a unit and do our best to be agreeable in all pleasant or unpleasant things which come our way. The Seniors have gotten fair play all the way round this year. The Brilliant Juniors haven ' t even thought of tramping on our dignity. They are a royal bunch. Saturday night, February 24th, they showed the Seniors an honest-to-goodness good time ; now we know they are capable of doing things. Last fall the Seniors went to the Gap for an all day picnic, but as usual, the one thing we have met with repeatedly since we started as Fresh- men came our way; it rained. But rain or no rain, we waded right out in the weather and explored the Gap until the rain drove us in, then we came into Middlesboro looking like a lost crowd of hoboes, hats flopped and our feet loaded with mud, but we had a good time like all kids when they go to town. Many more good times are in sight. We are having one jolly good time working on the annual. You would be surprised if you knew how many ugly faces expect pretty pictures from the photographer. I bet he always has smiles to spare when he thinks about taking pictures for us Seniors. As we leave our class this year as graduates of old Union, we scatter- in different directions, but we pledge ourselves to always play fair with ourselves and others, and to live up to our motto : " We must not stop here. Yonder lies the Port. " Flossie Turner. unnniiiiwiniiMii in mm " ' : ' iinnin i u; mil iiiiiiiiiihiiiiiiiiiiii :: . :i.

SENIOR CLASS WILL We, the Senior Class of Union College Academy, Barbourville, in the County of Knox, State of Kentucky. United States of America, being of full age and of sound mind and memory, do make, publish and declare this to be our last will and testament, hereby revoking all wills by us here- tofore made. I. We give and bequeath : To the Juniors all our dignity and big-headedness, together with the honor, the hard work, the worn-out intelligence, the disappointments and financial embarrassment, with which they may be aided in publishing the Stespean in 1924 ; also our esteemed and efficient instructors, plus the heirloomed privilege of escaping the much hated study hall. We wish to warn them against the crisis in financial affairs, which pursues the pur- chase of rings, invitations, caps and gowns, diplomas and other needless necessities of graduation from Union College Academy. II. To the Sophomores, our great quality of perseverance and never tir- ing endurance in bearing with the Faculty and the College Department on all occasions when they trample on our dignity. To the innocent Freshmen, our class motto: " We must not stop here; yonder lies the Port, " hoping they will succeed by following it to the end. To Normal, sub-academy, and the various classes below us, all our titles, such as " Jockey " (one who rides a pony in the Caesar derby) as well as all other helps and hindrances in their lively race with Caesar, Cicero and Virgil. To the College Department of which we are justly proud, all our envy. We also wish to make apology for any sour-grapes expressions hurled at them by Academy seniors in the past. III. To the following named instructors we give and bequeath the fol- lowing conditions, devices and advices: To Miss Weeks, our instructor in English IV, and censor of all our literary efforts, the combined argumentative powers of the class, expect- ing her to make State Champions out of all succeeding Seniors. To Professor Hewes, our inability to be present on Physics Labora- tory days. To Professor Franklin, all our blue and white permits, hoping that they will be victims of fire or some other destructive force. To Professor Peavy, our most sincere regards, hoping he will be suc- cessful with all seemingly hopeless Seniors who struggle to his care in the future. To Dr. Lundin, all the ancient cities unearthed by Seniors during their painful search for relics and history of ancient times. To Professor Bos, all the tablets of ancient languages dug up and translated by the Seniors during their careers as discoverers in the ancient world.

To Miss Von Waldheim the whole mob of stray cats that have escaped with their nine lives from the tender mercies of Professor Peavy ' s classes. To Professor Humfleet all the cancelled tickets collected at the basket- ball games, together with the assurance that they are worthless. To Professor Burnett, our vacant seats in chapel, asking that he till them with victims carrying less worthless avoirdupois than ourselves. To Miss Flemming, all the worn-out hymn books and the gymnasium piano, rendered toneless and tuneless by all kinds of campus music lovers. To Miss Murphy, a valuable prize for making an announcement in chapel almost every day in the year to the effect that she would like to meet somebody somewhere at a quarter of one. To Miss Wahl, as a token of remembrance for her efficiency as domes- tic science teacher, a man with an unsubdued appetite. To Professor Nunvar, in remembrance of the musical treats he has given us, all the burst drums, blasted horns, broken chairs, fiddle strings and music stands smashed by excited entertainers in their rustle, bustle and hustle to make their exits from the stage. To Mrs. Nunvar, we gladly give all the voices in our class, suggesting that they be cultivated for the purpose of entertaining the school as a whole during the chapel period. To Mr. Trosper, all our old shoes and worn out gym suits, and beg that he be very particular whom he allows to wear the said shoes and suits in any exhibition game. To Aunt Mae, in remembrance of the feasts we ' ve had in Union, all the old songs, such as " Cold Tater Cakes, " " Dear Navy Beans, " " Hash " and " Tough Beef, " inspired by starvation before she came to our rescue. To Gus Hauser, all our mechanical skill and energy, assuming that with it he will be able to invent a heating plant that will keep a polar bear from freezing on the coldest day at the north pole. To Violet and Josh all the water dogs in our class, and may our best wishes go with them. To Miss Taylor, all our old checks and statements mailed to and from different parties of this financially disgusted graduating class. To Mrs. Hewes all the fines she has collected, and our garments, old and new, with which she may start a junk shop in the interests of the poor. IV. To the following persons herein named, we give and devise the fol- lowing degrees of thrill, agony, embarrassment and disappointment : To Cecil Byrely, Lily Smith ' s dignity. To Kenneth Butt, Caroline ' s love for chewing gum. To John F. Williams, Mary Faulkner ' s red hair. To Arthur Delph, Mattie Kelly ' s innocence.

D. ' 22- ' 23. To Speed Hall, the name " Tantalis " in remembrance of the dates we thought and hoped to make and fulfill but couldn ' t. To the Gymnasium, the name " Trap ' s House, " in honor of a certain Mr. Trosper who kept the keys thereof. To the Administration Building, all the haunts and fears brought upon Seniors by tests of their mental ability. To the Campus, the name " Rache, " in remembrance of the revenge wreaked upon Seniors by having them rake leaves. To whoever shall remove them, the paths over the campus and pencil marks on the walls of buildings. To the champion chalk throwers in U. C, we give all the thumb pieces of chalk to be found lying about the seats of Seniors. We make, nominate and appoint, President E. T. Franklin, of Union College, to be executor of this .our last will and testament. In witness whereof, we have hereunto set our hands and seal at Union College, Barbourville, Kentucky, this the 15th day of March, 1923, A. D. THE SENIOR CLASS, By Marion C. Mayhew.

IN- UNION COLLEGE What might these things be, anyway? Well, I ' ll tell you what they are not, and give you various instructions on the subject. Social privileges don ' t mean that when you meet a girl on the walk or in the Administration Building, or in fact, in any other place, that you may grow friendly, and have a breezy chat. You may not even engage in a conversation amounting to more than a gay " Hello! Great Day. " By all means, don ' t dare offer to escort her to the class room or the front door; don ' t ever walk by her side any number of inches, even though you may be going in the same direction. No, most assuredly, you may not entertain her downtown, in the drug store, providing the chaperon happens to be minus. You don ' t even need to think of sitting by your best girl in the dining room; if you should happily land there by accident, move quickly or risk a breezy, uncomfort- able visit with the Social Committee. He who has arrived at the years of discretion, plus a sufficient amount of intelligence may, on every other Saturday night, turn his back on the crowd and face a corner of Speed Hall parlor with his Most Adorable and for two solid hours and a half, let his eyes feast on Her, catching Hers as they give back that divinely soulful light. Of course, there must be at least three feet of distance between him and Her, in order to give each the proper perspective on the other. The Matron may appear fre- quently, but this should not worry you; just lower your voice, or change the subject; talk about the weather. She won ' t stay long, for she won ' t find it interesting. Just as you are approaching a delicious climax to your conversation this same Matron will ring the bell which says : " Stand not upon the order of your going, but go at once, " and see to it that you go. You who are less worldly-wise — you Academy-ites — may whenever there ' s occasion for a date, take your girls to the gymnasium, to a game or to some chapel program, providing you have had that miserable date that comes after every other Ideal Date, known to the Rotating System. Getting dates is a fascinating process. Just spot your prey in the dining room, during supper. Quickly scribble her a few words, but be sure not to ask her at an earlier date; she might be nattered. Next, flag down a waiter and give him highball instructions as to delivery. You may now consider it settled. Be deliberate about your preparations. " She ' ll be more anxious for me if I am a few minutes late — no rush. " Run a comb through your hair; take your finger nails out of mourning; don ' t let pressing needs worry you, she won ' t mind. Upon arrival at Speed Hall don ' t forget to ring the bell ; the matron expects this as a courtesy due to her and to the college. While waiting for your angel to descend, look for Hall Rules. If you are kept waiting more than three minutes, place two chairs attractively near the front of the parlor, and occupy one of linn in: " n. ,m ii. ....;. ■ .inn minim 52 THE STESPEAN i 1 1 1 j i ; i ; i [ 1 1 1 1 1 : d J : ' . i ■ r . ;. .: iijiliiliilllllNllllllir them yourself. She will appreciate your thought for her. Don ' t get nervous; she ' ll be down presently. You will recognize her footsteps as she trips airily down the front stairs. A few minutes of conventional con- versation and off you go to the Gym for an evening of joy supreme. But it ' s all too short. Cheer up ! It might be worse. You may stay with her till 9 :30 in Speed Hall Parlor. Just as you have settled down for bliss sublime you will hear a bell that brings you to earth again. Don ' t spend more than half an hour saying " Good Night, " as even the matron ' s patience might be limited. When she rings that bell, consider yourself dismissed. Then, you may come again. Now, who knows? Isn ' t this Social Privileges in Union College? Flossie Turner. KENTUCKY MOUNTAINS I was born in old Kentucky, Where the Mountain trees do swing, Where every one is happy. E ' en the birds all sweetly sing. Where the rivers, brooks and mill streams, Murmur as they gaily glide. I ' m so glad I ' m in Kentucky And with you I ' ll e ' er abide. Chorus I love you old Kentucky, With your mountains strong and grand, Just for you we ' re strong and noble, We must be what you demand. E ' en the stars seem glad and happy, As to us they shine and smile, Oh. I love you Old Kentucky, You can all my cares beguile, Where every hill and valley Holds the welcome strong and true, We adore you Old Kentucky Tho You ' re old, to us You ' re new.

What is that monstrous little noise that could waken me from sweet, sound sleep? Now it seems like the sound of a spirit gliding across the floor; now a silence; now a faint large scurry of what must be tiny fleet. Is it a fairy come to visit me? I ' ll turn on the light and maybe catch a glimpse of the dainty creature. All is quiet; I peer cautiously around the room ; nothing to be seen — but something to hear; this time the sound comes from the depths of the bottom compart- ment of my dresser. Perhaps the fairy is banquetting on the remains of my last Sunday night ' s supper ! But no ! I hear it again — a gentle rustle in the neighborhood of my waste basket. Now, I have it. Slam goes my shoe in the direction of the noise, and quick as a flash my tiny guest darts from its hiding place, across the floor and disappears to parts un- known under the radiator. No Fairy he, but a small, soft, little gray creature with tiny, bright, black-bead eyes, a long sleek tail and a charming secretive, quiet way of doing things. He doesn ' t mean to disturb anyone, but he succeeds in making things uncomfortable wherever he makes his home. He is well known in Speed Hall, and is especially fond of old trunks in the attic. He is no other than our friend Mr. Mouse. He can cause more tumult than the fiercest animal of the jungle ; at any party where he makes his appearance he is welcomed with shrieks from all the fair sex. A bit of cheese tempts him from almost any hiding place; he will risk his life or die cheerfully for one small nibble. There is no crevice so narrow that he can ' t squeeze himself through it. The delicious odor of the pantry thrills his small soul to the depths. He fears not the cook, but Tabby House Cat is the horror of his life. Traps are not to be compared to her. So small, yet so shy, so harmless, yet so frightful, so quiet yet so annoying, the mouse reigns ubitquitous. Oh, Mouse with those sharp eyes and pointed ears, You have been a pest for years, The villain of all woman ' s fears, The cause of many a woman ' s tears ; Oh, Tabby, you will never fail If you ' ll catch this mouse — thus ends my tale.

We joined ourselves together in a unit to meet the many new obligations and oppor- tunities which we realized were lying ahead of us. The Publication of the Orange and Black was ours for a whole year. We entered into it with a zeal and enthusiasm that has met no bounds. We feel that we have kept up the record it has made for itself in the last two years ; we know we have kept it very much alive for another year, and now, we are ready to hand it on to our successors. We sincerely hope they will enjoy it and have as much fun with it as we have had. Oh, yes — we entertained our Senior Class, too, and in spite of the fact that half of both classes were away on a basket-ball trip, we feel that the party was a success because our guests assured us of the fact. We must not fail to mention Mrs. Franklin, who has been so faithful with us. She it is, who has been our inspiration a t all times. We are all especially fond of her. At the close of this year, we feel that we still hold the motto we adopted in our Freshman year: " There are no Alps.

The Sophomores! Why? Because we are full of pep and class spirit, because we are the largest class in school, and because we are always doing something. The first thing we did this year, after organizing ourselves into a lively clan, was to put on the annual English Drive, which we went into with our u sual enthusiasm. The Drive, lasted a month with something new every week ; for instance, we surprised everyone by our challenge to the other classes in school to a spelling match. Even the Seniors admit that we are a class of good spellers ! We showed our artistic taste in our display of posters, which were said to be the best ever on display in U. C, and we also showed our dra- matic ability in the Better English play, which we gave as a part of our literary program. Did the Sophomores ever fail to respond when given an opportunity to give a literary program? Of course not! Naturally, you would expect the Sophomores to give a snappy, original program. Were you ever dis- appointed. We think not ! Athletics? Yes indeed! Why, where would the High School Basket Ball Team come from if it were not for the Sophomore class? Both High School teams are made up largely of Sophomores, besides, we have some players on both varsity teams ! The best two swimmers in school are in our class ! No one will accept our challenge to a swimming meet. Oh yes, we share in all the athletics in U. C. Some people say we ' re vain, or " stuck up ! " Well, maybe we are ! Don ' t you think we have a right to be, since we can do so many things? Some of the most talented students in school are in our class ! We have good readers, singers, pianists, and other musicians. We have a snappy little orchestra, consisting of a piano, two violins, trombone, saxaphone, drums and several other instruments. Yes, our class can do anything! Of course, we have the best of times when we have a picnic or party. We have good times because we are " peppy " and all pull together, and because Mrs. E. T. Franklin is our faculty advisor and Miss Flemming our chaperone. We are the class of ' 25. The lively, peppy class that you must always notice. Behold! The SOPHOMORE CLASS! Bernice Humfleet, ' 25.

We started the school year with hard study, and a desire to rank high in our class work. However, there were some who found that they could not carry the work, and so they dropped out. After the Christmas holidays there are always some who drop out, but there are others to take their places. Such was the case with our class. Although our achievements on the Athletic field were nothing to boast of, we think we more than balanced it with our Literary program. We are determined to enter school next year as Sophomores ; put on the English Drive with success and win laurels for ourselves in all other fields.

The members of the class are in their respective communities, the ones into whose hands the great task of moulding and shaping the minds and lives of the rising gen- erations is placed. Its members are those who have surmounted many obstacles and difficulties, served with small pay without complaining and who stand as models of character and citizenship wherever they may be found. Being conscious of the fact that the success and power of our nation depends upon a good home life and upon the training of the chil- dren, they co-operate with every good move, and work for the welfare of their country more than any other thing. The Normal Class ranks along the first in loyalty to the institution. Every one of its members goes along smoothly and evenly and is seldom or never, called before the Disciplinary Committee for violation of rules. imiraiiiiiiBi miiii ' rii nil! liiiiiimiii! iii:::i-;::in„i! nilllllllUIIII ' !!! THE STESPEAN 61 SECOND CLASS NORMAL The Normal Class is the corner-stone of Union College — the largest in size, first in importance, and most essential in motive. The great num- ber of teachers turned out by the Normal Department give it the supremacy which it rightfully deserves. Its general tradition has been to supply Southeastern Kentucky with teachers. It is self supporting and a strong drawing card for Union College. " Onward " is the watchword, and on- ward it goes, a mighty force. The members as a rule are heavily loaded with their regular studies, and aside from these, they receive regular showers of current literature, which act as the connecting link from College to the practical world. Social life prevails sufficiently to make the environment very pleasant and admirable, but conducted, however, on lines of refinement, free from re- proach and criticism. J. M.

Miss Mildred Murphy is the able director of the society, and if there is a more interesting and up-to-date young woman than Miss Mur- phy, I ' d like to see her ; she keeps things humming in our society by always thinking of something new and original for the members to do. The Society meets every Friday night; sometimes programs are pre- sented by the members ; at other times Miss Von Waldheim or Miss Murphy reads plays and tells about the great playwrights. The Dramatic Society put on the play " Peg O ' My Heart " which, as everyone knows was a tremendous success. Cecil Byrely in the role of " Peg " the irrepressible, fun-loving Irish girl, quite surpassed anything she has ever done before ; she proved herself a real artist and showed un- usual dramatic ability. Horace Barker, who played the part of the dashing young hero did splendid work and made an ideal " Jerry. " Charles Heidrick, with his monocle and his English accent made everyone double up with laughter. Flossie Turner as the cold English society girl showed acting ability and talent in taking on a character different from her personality. " Mrs. Chichester " played by Carolyn Stanfill covered herself with glory- Carolyn deserves a great deal of praise for her work in " Peg; " she had the English old lady down " pat. " Bernice Humfleet made a sweet little English maid and Arthur Delph as the well trained butler did fine work. To Miss Murphy we extend our thanks for such good choice in the people she had for her characters and for her unusually good coaching of the play. The Society has had some of the peppiest parties given in U. C. The last party was given in February in honor of the cast of " Peg 0 ' My Heart ; " members of the society " took off " the different characters in " Peg, " which furnished a great deal of fun. Then there was the " Movie Star Contest, " and you had to guess what star ' s picture was on the wall. Three couples guessed the names of all of them, Bob Blair and Thelma Morehead, Charles Heidrick and Ruth Bowman, Josh Faulkner and Sarah Kelly. After this, the boys went into a room by themselves and composed sentimental love letters to the different girls; the girls then had to read the letters before everyone. Cecil Bryely ' s love letter, written by Frank Davidson, won the prize, which consisted of a hard boiled egg and a lem on. Everyone had a big time at the party and all are looking forward to " March ' s " party which will be given in honor of the author and director of the best original play. We can truthfully say this year the Union College Dramatic Society has been a worth while one. Rah ! Rah ! Rah ! Dramatic Society! Dramatic Society! Are we in it? Well, I guess! Dramatic Society!

It was organized some three years ago and has kept together remarkably well. Most of the present members were members of the original band. Last summer concerts were given in the Band Stand in town ; when school began and the new members arrived, the band was prepared to take them and continue their work, so the vacation did not hinder our progress. If anything, it helped by giving more time for individual practice. We can always depend on the band to furnish music when it is wanted. It is always an added attraction at basket ball games and other programs given at the College. However, their services are not limited to College programs, but they have played for any public spirited and worth-while cause when they were called on. We cannot say too much in praise of our band director. He is thor- oughly competent to direct a band, both musically and as a leader of men. He never asks more from his men than they can do nor more than he is willing to do himself. We, of the band, feel that we have a personal friend and one that is interested in our welfare in Prof. Simms. He devotes many hours a week to this work, also contributing hi s part or even more, to the funds. To sum up briefly, we are proud of A. T. Simms and this organization he is leading through a successful year. Reese Golden.

' . ,., ORCHESTRA The orchestra of this year is an entirely new organization. Being composed of new members during the year ' 20- ' 21 the Union College Or- chestra reached its highest point under the direction of Prof. Ahler. Then we did not have our orchestra the next year, so interest was lost. How- ever, it remained for Prof. F. A. Nunvar to revive and start the present orchestra. The orchestra began its career by giving a concert in the College Auditorium which was enjoyed by a large number of people. Next, at the request of the Methodist Church of Williamsburg, they gave a concert there, also playing for Sunday School and Church. The people of Wil- liamsburg were loud in their praises, and were very reluctant to let the orchestra leave. The organization has had a fairly successful year, considering the handicap under which it started. Just a word in praise of Prof. Nunvar. His patience is unlimited. He wishes ever the best for each player and is eager to work in order to help them. The College has found a jewel in Professor Nunvar. Reese Golden. II, ' I.. I 74 Hlllll!l ' i:!

It came into being in 1893 under the direct inspiration of the Vice President, Professor Shaw, who came to Union from Moors Hill College, Indiana. Great enthusiasm and loyalty ruled these pioneer Philos. They shared in the training which the organization offered, by electing officers every term. Membership consisted of both College and Academy students. New members were initiated with ceremonies so dark and mysterious that the old Philos recall them today with great glee. The men of the Faculty, including President Stevenson himself, took much in- terest in the society and often became active members. At the beginning of the term the President appointed a Critic whose duty, in part, consisted in providing programs full of variety and snap. Every two weeks there was a debate given by the College men and uppe. ' Academy students. The younger members gave declamations. There was often a Round Table discussion of worth-while subjects of the day. Ora- tions, original essays and five-minute talks all went to make up a type of spicy, inspiring work that the old Philos to this day consider the best part of their school life. No Philo meeting ever broke up without its hearty Society yell on the campus. The social side of society life was not neglected. At the regular once-a-month business meetings there was often a real feast contributed by the good mothers and friends of the members. There were occasional joint sessions, both literary and social, with the Fanny Speeds, an equally alive society among the girls. This type of work continued with great zest until 1908- ' 09 when both the Philos and Fanny Speeds died an untimely death, and it is taking al- most a miracle to bring the Philos back to their rightful place in Union College life. There have been various spurts of effort in this direction, but none has proved permanently effective. In the fall of 1922 under the inspiration of the College Alumni, all of whom are Philos of the old days, our College Department decided to take the old name, and as far as possible, to revive the old spirit and ideals, with the exception that girls are now Philos, too. They have given regular bi-weekly programs of higher quality than in any previous effort at revival. We are expecting now that the Philoneikean Literary Society is here to stay as one of the strongest up-lifting influences of the school. NOTE : The foregoing facts concerning the early Philos are contrib- uted by Dr. W. C. Black, who will prepare for the next volume of the Stespean a complete history of the Society from its inception to 1900. The word Philoneikean means " Lovers of Victory. " The old Philo motto was: " Find a way, or make it.

The High School literary society is now running in full force. Our curiosity was aroused in chapel one morn- ing when Miss Weeks asked all the high school students to remain for a few minutes. Enthusiasm was sure running wild. Everybody ' s hands went up when asked if they would help support the society. Officers were elected at once. Kenneth Butt, Pres. ; Bronzel McWilliams, Vice Pres. ; Gertrude Murphy, Sec; Cecil Byrely, Critic; Miss Weeks, faculty critic. This Literary Society is divided into four groups according to their classes, namely — Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, Freshmen. The program is furnished by these classes rotating, and alternating with the College Philos. Seniors came out arrayed in all their brilliancy. And next the Juniors came flipping along in similar steps; the Sophomores and Freshmen fol- lowed. Each program has shown real talent. Our society is blessed with good singers, readers and speakers. Each member that has appsared on the platform from time to time has worked hard to make this society the best that has ever been in dear old Union, and we feel that they have succeeded. Just a word to new members : keep it up to the standard. Catch the spirit that we have set and Kenneth Butt. : ' ::.ii:m: n . ' ■ :.:l :■; !

REVIEW OF FOOTBALL Last fall saw Union ' s first attempt at the great game of football for some years. There was once a football team here but it was discontinued. Most of our men had to learn the game from kick-off to finish. Most of them acted at first as if they had never seen, much less, handled, a football. Many were the bruised faces and bodies, sore joints and mashed hands. In spite of injuries, laughing when they were hurt, and angry when they were laid up and could not play, the men kept at the practice with the grim joy that comes to any red-blooded man when he is meeting and sur- mounting obstacles worthy of his steel. Butt, the peppy quarterback and captain, ha- played three years with Somerset, and was one of the most experienced men on the squad. Nash, right half back, has played a number of years at Berea. Parker, left half, won fame by making an eight-yard gain through the center of the Eastern line Thanksgiving day. He could not have done that if it had not been for superb blocking on the part of John H. Corum, Bruce Mayhew, Jesse Faulkner and Robert Mason. Coach Trosper was ably assisted by Earl Mayhew, former U. K. man. We look forward to a more successful year in ' 24, when " Lightning " Jake Howard will lead the wearers of the Orange and Black.

" And he spoke a parable. Our little red-headed forward manager, called by some critics the greatest forward in the Southeast, is always in the game from tip-off to whistle, and rarely fails to give a good acount of himself. JOSH FAULKNER " Josh " " Larney " Centers may come and Centers may go, but Josh, our long, lanky one, who never stretches himself unless necessary, and who possesses an un- canny eye for the goal, gets the tip-off over all of them, and stays put. He is leading the team this year. ROBERT BLAIR " Bob " Bob has been on the ' Varsity for five years — five years, for at least three of which he has been the despair of would-be-dribblers and shooters on opposing teams. He has a neat habit of shooting from just past the center line, and he hits quite a large percentage of his chances. WILLIAM ED DISHMAN " Bill Ed " This is Bill Ed ' s second year on the team. He is one of the best in the section. He sticks to his mark and plays defensive much more than offensive. However, he can shoot when it is neecssary. An ankle broken in football did not perceptibly slow up his work. He will be an all-state man in two more years. WILLIAM TYE " Sweet Willy " When Bill starts a dribble through the defense it would seem that he was possessed of a magnetism which causes the ball to travel in his general direction. His deadly accuracy and versatility of style in shoot- ing is the grave yard of the hopes of many an opposing guard. W. B. TROSPER " Trap " Trap was ruled out of the S. I. A. A. games because he was a coach as well as player. His untiring vigor, neat footwook, and all-round playing have won many games for Union. HORACE BARKER " Horace " Horace is again defending the Orange and Black after two years ' absence. This is his third year on the ' Varsity as he played two seasons before he went on furlough. He is quick and a splendid guard. He was ruled out of the S. I. A. A. games for playing professional baseball. MILBURN TAYLOR " Sheik " Taylor is an all-round player. He usually goes in at guard and plays forward. He is a good dodger, and a hard man to take care of in a scrimmage. REESE GOLDEN " Humpy " Reese is a yearling as sub-forward. He can shoot with a good deal of accuracy and break up a pass with any of them. THE STESPEAN I.!!. ' -..! ! . I ,...,:, . :l 1,1,. . I. II:! ' ' HARRIS TERRELL Terrell came from Berea, and made a sub-position. He can juggle the ball like a circus performer and can shoot very well indeed. HATCHER MILLER Miller is also a yearling. He has all the ear marks of a good guard, and is well up in the line for a regular berth. HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL TEAM HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL Union had a fast, scrappy High School team this year. It beat Man- chester by a large score in the middle of the winter, and again by a more narrow margin in the tournament. It went into the semi-finals of the tournament and was defeated by our arch-enemy Sue Bennett 40-31. Asher, at center, long and rangy, full of pep and ginger, gets a sur- prising percentage of tip-offs and a good many goals. Tye, at forward, is a ' Varsity man. Booze is not so tipsy as his name sounds and gave a good account of himself in the three games he played. Stout, a fast man, was sub-forward, as was Blanton. George Corum and Clyde Hensley did a very good job of interesting passes, stealing tip-offs and getting the ball either to the forwards or to the goal.

Dear Sir : I had the pleasure one night this week of seeing your basketball team play the State Normal School of this city. Your boys lost the game, but they won the respect of everybody present because it was very evident that they were not only good sports but high-class, well-trained gentlemen. You have one whose name I do not know, but he is red-headed and played the last half. I believe he is the fastest human being I have ever seen in action. Good wishes to you always. Respectfully, J.

She is full of pep and push and is continually " taking it up, " or yelling or rooting someway, while she is on the side lines. ELLEN HOWARD Ellen is a second edition of Jakie when it comes to a " never-say-die " spirit, bull-dog grip, and pep. She is playing her first season as regular guard, having alternated with Margaret Wilson last year. This year, they form together the defensive section of our girls ' quintette. THELMA MOREHEAD Thelma, getting her A. B., this year, has played on the girls ' ' Varsity six years. She is expert at short shots and shakes a mean wrist on the longer ones. The ' Varsity will miss Thelma very much next year. ISABELLE RIGGS Riggs, wearing the Orange and Black for her second season, is captain and center. She is a peppy, fast- running, hard-playing girl. She is gritty to the core, playing with an injured thumb, the pain of which brought tears to her eyes. LOVE MORRIS Love, in the harness for Union for three years says she is playing her last season, but most of her friends seem to hail from Missouri. Her soft voice belies the get-up-and-go-spirit of which she has her full share. She usually holds up her end of the point-making for the teams. MARGARET WILSON Margaret is holding down one of the defensive positions for the first time as a regular. Last year she and Ellen alternated. She is hard to rattle and harder to get away from. She doesn ' t seem to be so fast, but she is always around the general vicinity of the girl she is guarding. ALICE WHITTINGTON Alice has played sub. for two years and has played in a few games. She shows no slight ability as a forward and we are sure we shall hear more from her later. MARIE JACKSON This is Marie ' s first year on the squad. She has shown quite a bit of ability at center, and, after she has become used to playing before a crowd, her strength and general playing ability will put her on any squad in the state.

Although this is its first year in Union College, it has gained great favor with the Faculty, Student body and with the lovers of athletics in the immediate vicinity of Union College, and especially with our husky Kentucky Mountaineers. Although we were able to win only a small per cent of our games, a great moral victory is ours for having taken the raw material which we had, and having achieved, by the aid of Coach Trosper, what we did. The fighting spirit of foot-ball is instilled. Watch us win in the future as we always have in the other forms of athletics. In basket-ball all our starring material is with us again. And much more good material is added to both boys and girls ' Varsities. Our record as winners closely rivals that of any preceding year. Our strength was tested and proved in the tilt with the renowned Kentucky State Freshmen, where the fastest and most thrilling game of years brought us defeat by a small margin. BASE BALL! Barker is here and every other former player of ability and many more promising new subjects are on the field. Out of the twenty-five try-outs, we find the strength of former years multiplied many times. An interesting schedule is being carried out, and because of Bar- ker ' s ability we are assured of a winning career for the season. Swimming is considered very important in Union College as is proved by the number of Life Saving Cheverons worn by students. We are proud of our swimmers. Physical training is keeping the boys and girls in health as shown by a record of very little sickness in the past year compared with years before our gym was built. We, as a school with a purpose of teaching American ideas are indeed proud of our American forms of Athletics, and are inspired by our vic- tories to play the game of life in the same manner to the same victor- ious end.
