She was a lineal descendant of Dr. Walker, who built, near Barbourville, the first house in Kentucky. While Fanny was yet in her girlhood, the Hen- nings moved across the Mountains into the Bluegrass. She was educated at Science Hill Academy, and in 1842 married Joshua Speed, a wealthy young business man of Louisville. Their life- long devotion to each other is now a tradition in the Speed familv. Mrs. Speed, strong in her religious nature, had e:.rly united with the Methodist Church, South. In 1865, she joined forces with the Loyal Eighteen and thus became one of the founders of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Kentucky. Though Mr. and Mrs. Speed were slave-holders, they were Abolitionists at heart. With the coming of Emancipation, the Speed slaves were all retained as family servants, and if one of them was sick, or in need, he was cared for tenderly to the end of his life. Mr. Speed was the warm personal friend of President Lincoln, and his able adviser during the Civil War. Through the influence of her pastor, Dr. Daniel Stevenson, Mrs. Speed became much inter- ested in establishing a school of higher learning for the youth of our mountains, and Union Col- lege stands today, a monument to her loyalty to Dr. Stevenson. During his presidency at Union, she paid his salary and all deficits of the school until her death. Her gifts supported the fam- ilies of man} ' poorly paid mountain preachers, kept many a poverty-stricken but worthv voung man in school, and made Fanny Speed Hall possible. She never kept account of the money she spent in this way. By her will, $250,000 became the nucleus of our endowment fund. Mrs. Speed was a woman of rare beauty, with sympathetic brown eyes and refined features that were a constant benediction to all who knew her. Talent, influence, wealth were hers, and she used all to relieve suffering and hardship wherever she found them. A frail body never en- shrined a lovelier spirit. Her life of sweetness and consecration inspired all who knew her with a desire for higher things. The Stespean, Nineteen Twenty-Seven E. T. Franklin - , President He Did It Who is this mighty man we see, If mighty, mighty man he be, But one who dares not to be mad, Yet takes the credit, good or bad For all that others round him do In college, town and country, too? Why have a college president then, If you can ' t use him always when You ' re short on reasons, wherefores, whys, When asked by scolding men and wise Why school is bum, athletics slow, And add that you and all should know That something ' s wrong, the fault must lay At someone ' s feet. What do you say? With spirits low and half confessing, You then admit, though it ' s distressing, He did it. And when a fellow of long ago Comes back and struts and swaggers so, The boys and girls of this generation Are seized with wonder and admiration. They listen to the tales of yore, And how those men who ' ve gone before Have great things done, and greater too, Than last year ' s graduates will do — " Your faculty ' s dumb compared with ours, Our teachers were giants, veritable towers " — Self-pity and remorse go through and through Poor students; they know not what to do, Except to say: " We ' re not to blame If history gives to us no fame, " for He did it. If a freshman fails to do his work, Though he is always known to shirk, If lassie courts too much and falls To pass in Eng ' ish, French or Snails; If somebody is lacking sense and nerves And wants more backing than he deserves; If somebody thinks that he ' s quite superior And the records show that he is inferior — With idlers they come to grief and shame And look around for someone to blame, When suddenly they come with one accord, And render a verd ' ct with solemn word: He did it. The picture chang;s; when others vou greet, Who lay all honors at prexy ' s feet; He has credit for this, he has credit for that, He has done ever ' thing where we ' ve been at. Buildings, endowments, faculties, friends, To his achievements there are no ends; He preaches, he talks, he rides and he walks, He ' s sometimes hard-headed but he never balks. In pain or in sorrow, in joy or in fun, He never does stop till the task is done; Honor to whom honor, and due to whom due, If vou onlv knew it you ' d say too: He did it. If purpose you have and a plenty of it, With average sense and nerve to go with it, Just look to your work for your peace of mind, And leave such troubles all behind As ire and flattery, and temporary spells With fussing and fuming and sometimes yells, And do your very best to be useful and true, Forgiving all others as God forgives you. Then smile " Good-morning " and " How do you do? " And keep on working each whole day through With faith and prayer and honest heart, Remembering just how you got your start; But be ready to hear from every side Of good things and bad things both far and wide That you ' ve done and done and done and done To this one and that one and to everyone. Just keep on working, believing and praying, But do not get fussed or thrilled at their say- ing: He did it. (Each member of the faculty speaks for him- self this year. — Editor.)

Grace Ralstox Franklin B.S., A.B. Academy English She didn ' t have Peter Pan ' s courage, so she stayed and grew up into an English teacher. That is, the outside grew up and imprisoned her. The shell is not attractive nor would you likely be interested in the shy dreamy child in pigtails who lives inside and still likes fairy stories and playhouses. Ira B. Peavy M.E., B.E., M.PD., M.S. Science Has as his motto: " Try to find the good in everyone and then cultivate that good. " He tries to teach the golden lessons of self-re- straint, self-reliance, of integrity, honor and true nobility, and to be a friend to every man that he may lead some to know the Great Teacher.

Georgia Rau Kramer Home Economics She is judge, jury, prosecuting attorney and defendant, house mother, and hostess for Speed Hall. She spends her hours endeavor- ing to make the Hall the " Home, Sweet Home " of the campus. Her avocation is interior dec- oration; her hobbies are teas, hikes, tennis, riding and fishing. Her antipathies are " pet- ting, " gum chewing and simpering. Buoy- ant? Yes, but not in water. Faculty Loyd E. Rackley U.S., A.M. Education According to the students my philosophy of life is set forth in the following statements: Generalizations are dangerous, therefore, think in specific terms — " For instance. " My word of advice to all students is, " Don ' t let the good cheat you out of the best. " (A loud Amen.) J. W. Denny Music " In college I trod the paths of my choice, Delved into Latin, Piano and Voice. " And now an instructor — helping the talent- ed to achieve the goal of their ambitions, and students in general to appreciate all things musical. John B. Wolfe a.b. Mathematics Evelyn Black Expression and Dramatics Speech is our noble means of communica- tion. Expressive speech is the root of our personalities.

But how- the subject theme may gang, let time and chance determine. Per- haps it may turn out a song. Perhaps, turn out a sermon. " Warren C. Smith Assistant Treasurer Starting in West Virginia, and sojourning awhile in Ohio and Illinois, the above speci- men had to come down among the other hill billies to gain his first real distinction on Hal- lowe-en as the homely but efficient vamp of the Prince of Wales. Corroborating witness, Joe Meyers. Mrs. Mae Wallace " Aunt Mae " After ten years of feeding the hungry crowd at Union, I haven ' t killed anyone, but my cooking has caused a thousand cases of ter- rible indigestion. Students have eaten whole wheat biscuits until their jaws have swollen to mighty proportions and the doctor has pro- nounced it mumps! Carrie Bennett Cecil Secretary to Mr. Bennett; office boy and errand boy of the Endowment Office. I am not as serious as you might think, judging from the above. I really do smile occasion- ally, and in addition to the light work of the office, assist in being generally useless around U. C. campus. Earnest A. Bender c.e. Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds Mr. Bender keeps our campus looking beau- tiful ; you may find him working at this task early and late. However he finds time for occasional picnics and sees that his Dodge gets all necessary exercise. Alvis S. Bennett Financial Agent, Union College Endowment My position is most cheerful in your midst. I am not clothed with cold authority, but " pursue the noiseless tenor " of my way as one of your big family.

By the time this book appear;, on the campus, the class itself will have passed into history. Time has wrought havoc in our original numbers. Some have fallen by the wayside; many are teaching to others what they worked hard to glean for themselves; instead of a position, others have a good job working in Dad ' s store or driving a truck. Some are being graduated from other institutions. But not so with the Loyal Seven. Just as in preceding years when we consider the students who will be seen no more on the campus, or loafing around the steps and halls of the Administration Building, we wonder how the old school will manage to keep going without them. One all-round athlete will be gone; two good teachers, one of Economics, one of Math, will be missed from Convocations; another will be busy with the cares of the home; a rising young journalist will have made her debut in the editorial world; the Dramatic Club will have lost its president and the Book Store must have a new manager; student activities will drop without hope when the genius of this group has departed from the campus. Oh, yes; old Union will miss us, but she will exist without the Loyal Seven. O.J. Thomas Higxite Thomas ' s debut at Union was made at the tender age of six when he marched up to one of the teachers, a large notebook held firmly under his arm, and announced that he wanted to take " Execution. " This quality of deter- mination so evident in his red hair and shrewd grey eyes, he has evinced all through his school career. The attractions of being a traveling salesman lured h ' m away from college for two years, but he decided that a degree was essential to his ambitions, and so returned to finish with us. Dorothy MacPhail Wit, pep and audacity she possesses mani- fold. Owing to her feminine habit of chang- ing her mind, her collegiate career has been a checkered one, but after trying out Georgia and Georgetown, she decided for old Union. Dot was an active member of the famous Scribbler ' s Club, editor of last year ' s Stespean and a reporter on " The Mountain Advocate. " A journalistic career for her. William Messer Bill, our best-looking Senior, has the dis- tinction of being football captain, and the most popular man on the campus. Bill also plays basketball and is on the tennis team. He is a good student, a member of the Dramatic and French Clubs, and an optimist; his cheer- ful slant on life is very refreshing. Union will miss his twinkling blue eyes and blonde curls next year, won ' t she, Eula Mae? The Stespean, Nineteen Twenty-Seven Mayme Hensley Besides being Secretary of her class, Mayme is also president of the Dramatic Club, vice- president of the French Club, vice-president of the Educational Association and a mem- ber of the Glee Club. What more could be said? Mayme has indicated that the teach- ing profession will claim her after gradua- tion, and with her genial personality, her keen sense of humor and her steady sincerity, she is assured of success in that field. And could one find a more popular girl in Speed Hall? Ask Jeanna and Susie! Taylor Jarvls Taylor is one of the four Jarvis Brothers who are graduating from Union this June; two from the Academy, and two from the college. He is a serious-minded young man; we think his devotion to his beloved Math has made him so, but he claims it is his travails as a student teacher. That Taylor does have his humorous side was evidenced when he very skillfully took the part of the stuttering tailor in the " Taming of the Shrew. " He also lends a voice in the Glee Club and the Chorus. Irexe Byrd Dyer This little lady hails from Arkansas, where she was a student at the State University for three years — that is, until Prof. Dyer persuad- ed her to take the degree of M.R.S. So thanks to his persuasive powers, we have her as one of our Seniors. Mrs. Dyer is very much alive and is an interested worker in many of the student activities — besides keep- ing house and managing a husband! The Dramatic Club also claims some of her time. The Stespean, Nineteen Twenty-Seven )enior Will Item . The Class of Twenty-Seven bequeaths to each and every student of Union College a copy of the songs, " To the Work, " and " Stepping in the Light. " We feel that these songs have been sung so often in chapel no memory of school life would be complete without them. Item 2. To the student body we leave money to buy three brightly illuminated buses in which to make athletic trips. Item 3. To the Freshman Class Dorothy MacPhail leaves her illustrious example of perfect chapel attendance. Item 4. To all students from Clay County, Mayme Hensley leaves the story of her Christmas trip to Manchester. 77cm 5. Oscar Jarvis bequeaths to Happy Mayhew and Catharine Hawn his deliberate method of speech. Item 6. Taylor Jarvis leaves his Ford to anyone who can drive it faster than he can. Item 7. Airs. Dyer leaves her method of making A ' s to anyone who wants to get on the Special Privilege List. Item S. Thomas Hignite leaves his love of an argument to Lawrence Wagers and Prof. Rackley. Item Q. Bill Messer leaves, to the most deserving, the privilege of play mixed doubles with Eula Mae. Item 10. The class leaves it most sincere and heart-felt sympathy with the faculty for their colossal patience and efforts to sharpen our intellects. Item 11. The class leaves its good will to the bachelor members of the faculty, with the advice, " Do their best. " (Signed) XYZ. Chronicles of 1926-27 September 21 — School opens with a bang! Halls are crowded with new students — lots of pretty girls, too. 23 — Lost, one freshman. Finder please return to English room. Who? October g — Bulldogs lose to Hiwasse by a very small score. 16 — Bulldogs lose to Tennessee Wesleyan — better luck next time, gang, iq — Thrills and heart wiggles. Speed Hall girls get social privileges to the movies. 2(1 — Edith Cheap elected Editor-in-Chief of the " Orange and Black. " Makes lengthy speech in chapel. 24 — Ross Baldes, our would-be Doug Fairbanks, falls from Merle ' s Ford coupe and receives enough cuts and bruises to prevent any such further performances for a long time. THOMAS IRENE DOT MAYME COLLEGE JUNIORS College Juniors J. C. HALl President Not only president of our class, but Business Manager of four teams and President of the Classical Club, which would seem to indicate no little executive ability on his part. More than a favorite with the unfair sex. Corixne Ward Vice-President This young lady knows the art of getting A ' s without degenerating into a grind. She is also assistant in the dean ' s office. But with all her duties she finds many a good time, and some courting! Li ' CRETiA Williams Secretary-Treasurer Lucretia has the tremendous task of being secretary and treasurer of the Junior Class. However, the latter could not have exacted much care from her. She teaches Academy Math in an efficient manner. Carol Rippere Editor of the Stespean The literary genus of our class — an editor and writer of charming sketches and poems. A good sport in the classroom, in athletics and in society. Emersox Cobb It is Emerson ' s deep bass voice which adds that indescribable harmony to the Men ' s Glee Club. It is his weighty form and canny football sense that makes him a valuable guard of the Varsity eleven. Gladys De Marcus The quiet member of our class. Gladys becomes animated, though, when in Dra- matics. She spends most of her time in the Library where she is assistant to the Librarian. William Bexxett A serious-minded young man who swims and teaches Latin with the same ease and confidence. Bill has a ready sense of humor and an infectious laugh. SUDIE WARREX A former Saturday student — now with us every day. She has a capacity for pro- curing A ' s, and also for charming a certain young man. Fred Putnam No, Fred is not lazy, but is simply averse to work. He is the happy-go-lucky type who is popular with everyone. A dandy football and basketball player. Lawrexce Wagers The argumentative Lawrence! He should be a lawyer for he indeed has the gift of gab. Especially susceptible to Cupid ' s darts his love idylls are numerous. Edward Miracle A teacher for a number of years, but also a wide-awake student, Mr. Miracle came to us at mid-year. Close observation of mountain life has made his sketches on the subject a joy to the Scribbler ' s Club. Coach Wolfe, Class Sponsor SOPHOMORE CLASS Soph omores ' XTER, " commanded the gate-keeper of the state of Know-It- All, and the twenty-five happy Sophs trouped into the un- known land en route to Juniorville. They soon discovered that in unity there is strength and elected Margaret Rippere, president ; Zelma Wells, vice-president ; Edith Cheap and Elmer Robinson to the Student Council ; Professor Dyer, sponsor. As they marched through this land they received several wireless calls from the guide, Union College, for people to fill in the ranks of her divisions. None of these calls were turned down; Berenice Aguilera made peace for Cuba; Marie Jackson made fish of women; Challis Warren expounded the forms of letters; Edith Cheap edited the Orange and Black, managed by Jesse Lay, Ruth Rader, and Ethel Miracle; Stanley Faulkner held down center on the football team; Eula Mae Warren captained the girls ' varsity, with Zelma Wells as back guard, song leader and yell leader respectively; Elmer Robinson was one of the baseball nine. Laura Roberts is our queen of the keys (typewriter). Denver Miller and Eula Mae Warren were chosen handsomest man and best sport, respectively. Robert Black, with many of his classmates, raised a racquet. Elizabeth Chandler graced the presidency of La So- siete Francaise. No, the Sophs never failed even in good times. Memories of the Freshman-Sophomore hike, the Pine Mountain excursion, the fishing trip, and other pleasant occasions will linger with them forever. Soon they will reach the next strange stopping place, Juniorville, and they hope that there also, they may contribute as much to their be- loved guide as they have while journeying through the land of the Sophomores. E. M. W. Fresh resnman CI ass Here ' s to the largest class Union College has ever had! Sixty-five strong, we have made a record for ourselves that the upper classmen might well emulate. It is partly due to the efforts of this class that the custom of weekly class meetings was inaugu- rated, a thing much needed, although some mercenary souls have been so ungrateful as to say that these meetings were not at all conducive to pleasure. Possibly the occasional references of the treasurer to class dues is responsible for this feeling. In the contest for the picture contributed by the Elson Art Company, who won? Freshman, of course. Which class has the prettiest girl in school? Again comes the answer, Freshman, of course. And what other college class is the happy possessor of twins? None. To mention individually each member of this organization would require too much space and more adjectives than our language boasts; but there are a few whom we think deserve espe- cial consideration. Fred Rigshy, president, has proved a very capable and long-suffering execu- tive. He has, in addition to his college course, been taking some extra instruction in the Academy. The hasketball wonder, Chick Lawson, has a marvelous gift — of saying one thing and meaning another. Every Friday, for a whole semester, George Gallagher has poured forth such a pas- sionate plea for the almighty dollar that members of the class have gone to him with tears in their eyes, begging him to accept their class dues. Although she has a head full of notions, Cledith Sewell has been an efficient chairman of the social committee; she is afraid, however, that too many parties and too many howls will break her heart some day. Julia Boggs has set many hearts aflame with her red hair — aflame with rage, and with admiration. For further informa- tion inquire, respectively, of Joe Myers and Laurence Wagers. Speakng of Joe Myers, he is always ready to talk. He talked too much one day, but luckily she didn ' t accept him! None of the Freshmen have been bothered with coughs the second semester — for we now have the Smith Brothers to supply us with their famous remedy. Other high lights in our constellation are: Sadie Kelley, who holds the world ' s record for being late to class; Dot Baugh, cheer leader, who not only can yell, but is also acrobatic. John Fred Williams is so popular that he wears a sign which says, " One at a time, girls. " Then there is William Pippin, who can describe anything w!th two words, " Pretty good, " and James Large, who, contrary to custom, is most active when tickled. Prof. Pippere, class sponsor, is acclaimed a good sport by the whole class. He responds to all pleas for help, even to being Santa Claus. From this account some might infer that our most worthy class is a trifle " green. " Well, what if we are? Isn ' t green God ' s chosen color? And wasn ' t it a saint who immortalized it? Here endeth this account of the Freshman Class, with a word of apology and congratulation to those left out. We couldn ' t tell everything, for which be duly grateful. So, Here ' s to the Freshmen, All tried and true; You 11 be Sophs next year Good-bye! Boo-Hoo! C=ffm!p Student Poetry I Wonder I wonder if, when I shall come to die, The things that meet my eager, questing eye In that country where souls are said to go Will he half so beautiful and rare As those I leave on earth that I love so? Will there be still, white winter days That end in gray, or in a sunset blaze? Could it be within the power of God To make days more exquisite than those Of spring, with budding trees and greening sod? If there I may feel the wind ' s caress, Telling me secrets or bringing rain to bless Every creature who is Nature ' s child ; If assured of these and other kindred things, I shall then to death be reconciled. S. R. The Wind Whence comes the wind that whistles ' round the house And knocks with impat ' ent fingers at my window pane? I seem to see its staring face, flushed from fierce carouse, Look in with wondering eyes and then rush off again. Whither goes the wind? I hear it pass the trees, Which bow their mighty heads till it is gone... To — where? I think to meet the dawn — Or perhaps to play with ships upon the seas. S. R. Snow The snow drifts in, In the black of the night, And next morning every familiar thing Is traced in soft, prismatic whiteness Against an opalescent sky. The breathless world peeps from under Its feathery weight. And the sun gold dusts Each violet-tinted crystal until It glitters and scintillates, coldly. C. R. i d fe T r .: ' vi ,i0 r Acad cademy Seme Htfmt ' Sillous Hembree ■■sir Sillous has the honor of being our class presi- dent. We are certain that a better one could not be found. Besides possessing a dignity that has led the uninitiated to mistake him for one of the professors, Sillous is an accomplished guitar solo- ist. Willie Lee Cecil " Bill " " She ' s a person, commonlike and good, Plain and easy understood; One that folks like me and you Kin understand and relish, too. Something in her nature hits The spot, and sticks and benefits. " Harry Hopper " Jack " He is always seen in the much desired com- pany of a certain cheer leader. He is quite ac- tive on the tennis courts and the sound of his merry banter and light, airy persiflage is an in- dispensable part of the game. For further in- formation about this young man see Dot Baugh. Pauline McClure " Polly " Polly ' s name is apropos, for she certainly can, and does, do her part of the talking. Polly is working toward a business career ; she is not only an Academy Senior, but also a student in Mc- Neils Business College. Ralston Franklin Ralston is not only a good student but an ath- lete of some promise. Our president ' s son is more than popular around the campus, and we know that his attractive personality and sunny smile will pave his way to many good things in life. Lovella Pope " Pope " Who is it that the Speed Hall girls like for a chaperone? Why nobody but our old stand- by, " Pope. " She is dependable — a high tribute to her character. Lovella takes her school work seriously. We hope that she will return in the fall and once more be a Freshman — this time in College. Acad caaemy Seni( Craig Price Black Craig had his first two years at B. H. S., but he seems like one of the class family now. Craig is a quiet boy, an excellent student and a flashy tennis player. Ethel Tidwell The industrious Ethel is endowed with a lik- able personality which endears her to both class- mates and teachers. Another gift of this young lady is promptness; we are sure this quality will prove useful in her future work. Nora Lee Amis Although Nora Lee is a quiet, modest little girl, she stands in the front rank of our class in scholarship. Her favorite subjects are arith- metic and science. We expect to hear great things of Nora Lee before many years glide by. Martha Bell Goodix " Red " Martha Bell is a good sport who has captured the formula for cheerfulness; go and talk to her when you ' re blue; you ' ll find that her optimism is contagious. Besides her other good qualities, this remarkable girl does not know how to de- scribe a demerit. Crit Jarvis (Brother to George) " Gramp " Four years straight in Union Academy, that ' s his record. Promptness must be his motto, as we never knew him to be late to class. Crit plays on the Academy basketball team. If you are looking for an all right young man, get ac- quainted with " Gramp. " Mildred Rader All wool and a yard wide we can say of Mil- dred. The class could hardly have lived with- out her, for her loyalty and interest have been an inspiration to us. She reads, swims and de- bates well. She is always alive, and causes even our most dignified members to smile. The Stespean, Nineteen Twenty-Seven Acad caaemy Seni Thelma Parrot Our Dolly Dimples — always smiling. If Thel isn ' t making eyes at the other girl ' s fellows, she is talking about her own. She ' s the class baby and leading lady of ' " Adam and Eva. " Bex Dishman Ben left G. M. A. to become one of us. We were so glad to welcome him that we straightway elected him class vice-president. Ben may be truly called an athlete; for he is our star bas- ketball player, next year ' s football captain and good at tennis. Mary Lois Lawson Lois is one of our crowd who lives at Artemus. She is faithful to every task set before her, though she prefers mathematics. We hope to see her teaching Math in some college some day — and that college, Union. Lena Broyles This is one whose Christian character shines through all of her works. When we want true friendship or help, we always go to Lena. We feel sure that her sympathy and her fidelity to whatever task she undertakes, will bring her true success. Myrtle Payxe In spite of her name s he is a delightful com- panion. She represents the Senior Academy class in the Student Council. Myrtle is another one of our footlight favorites — we wonder if she ' ll go on the stage, or set up housekeeping? Elbert Tlrner " A jolly good fellow, " a bottle o ' pep, an old Reliable, a dependable character, a joy to the Seniors. An altogether winning personality — that ' s Elbert. What more could vou ask? The Stespean, Nineteen Twenty-Seven Acad cademy Sem Mary Gray " Mary Lou " The Shylock of the class. Mary takes care of the Senior ' s many (?) shekels. Quite a task, really. She is one of our all-around good sports, noted for her strong, true character. Myrtle Foley Oh, she ' s a sport and she ' s popular and there ' s hardly one thing that she can ' t do. She swims and plays basketball very well indeed. Not to mention her most striking accomplishment — roll- ing those big brown eyes! Shellie Valentine She believes is being seen and not heard, and practices it. Those who know her will never forget her love of fun, her fidelity to her work, and her beautiful long curls. Velmar Ashley Velmar is our handsome young gentleman who has never been tardy to class. He is efficient, and trustworthy, and also most " Paynes-taking. " Vel- mar did some fine acting in our play, " The Dear Departed. " Dorothy Slush er Dot is a girl of wonderful disposition. She is an excellent student and is therefore fond of making A ' s. She wears a smile that would win the heart of an Irishman. Dot is one of the faithful members of the Order of the Klue Goose. Daphne Slusher Daphne is a quiet, modest girl, sweet in her manner and a strong student. The girl who went through her entire course at Union with- out receiving a demerit. What more could be said? Except R. S. T. The Stespean, Nineteen Twenty-Seven Acad cademy Seni lors Marvin Epperson Marvin tried out Berea before he came to Union three years ago. We ' re glad that he liked us better. In this member of the class we find an unusual combinatioin — for he is not only studious, but, with the aid of his Ford, a popu- lar ladies ' man. George W. Jarvis George has been with us off and on for four years, and is one of the charter members of the class. His ambitions run along the lines of mak- ing A ' s and courting. We think he is successful in both, judging from various reports. Delmer Jarvis (Cousin to George) Delmer, better known as Slim or Speed, lives up to the last of his two nicknames, especially on the baseball diamond or when driving his Rolls- Rough. Delmer is one of our most popular Sen- iors, and his friends are numerous, with the feminine element in the majority.

Upon being suddenly raised to the lofty heights of Sophomoredom, many of us were convinced that we knew all there was to be known; some deserted our ranks, so thoroughly did they believe this. Becoming a Junior had no glamour for our depleted ranks; promotion was becoming less thrilling than in our younger days, and we began to realize that higher classes meant higher ambitions and — more work. It was about this time, under Mrs. Barnhill, that our class consciousness manifested itself in various ways — chapel programs and parties. But now we are Seniors, and we have become inordinately fond of each other, and of our sponsor, Mrs. Franklin. This year has been one of many interesting occasions. We enjoyed a picnic hike; were entertained royally by both the Seniors of S. K. B. S. and Barbourville High; presented an enthusiastically received play, " The Dear Departed " ; and, besides, looking forward to the thrill of graduating and all that means, we are planning a picnic to Cumberland Gap — and, last but not least, a play, " Adam and Eva.

Of course we aren ' t conceited, but we will have to hand it to ourselves for having such a teacher as Mrs. Franklin, who helped make us what we are. But say! We were quite ready for a collapse at the first of school when sbe handed us a list of books we were to study. Nevertheless, we have lived thiough it until now and are much the better for it. So Hooray! In the fall of 1926 a perfect day was ended when the juniors returned from a hike to Bald Hill. By some good luck the lights were off all over town that night and the walk home was very — interesting. When the separate Academy Chapel started on Friday mornings, the Juniors were one of the first to give a program and have held an active part ever since. On April 18, at 6 :j;o p.m., we entertained the Seniors with a banquet in the col- lege dining room. This has been a custom for some time and testimonials agree that our banquet was indeed up to par. Our class is known this year by its pretty girls, noisy boys and exuberant class spirit. We are expecting another hike this spring and are all looking forward to it.

" n I STORY is often the bane of the student ' s life, but the history of such an illustrious group as we are, can not fail to be fas- cinating. In the fall of ' 25 we entered upon our high school career. In the beginning we numbered seventeen, but now we claim twenty-seven. We hope that neither examination nor Dan Cupid steps in and robs us. In our class we have several noteworthy boys and girls: James Rietz, the story writer; James Reynolds, who hails from Artemus ; John Dusini, the saxophone player, who this year brought us his brother, Charles, better known as Valentino. We claim the only Booze in school, our great bass singer. To us also belongs " Grinny " Messer, the star center on the basketball team. Yes, and " Noisy " Congleton, the great debater. We also claim the smallest and youngest girl in school, Anna Todd, who sometimes plays in chapel on Friday mornings. Etta Car- land, Hazel Alford, and Effie Miller are the quietest girls in the class. Jeanna Nelson, who comes to us from Sayre College, and Lena Roberts, a daughter of Virginia, charm us with their delightful readings. When a committee is to be appointed our president looks for Myrtle Chapel and Estill Grant, who are always dependable and willing to work. With Williard Buttermore, the only doctor ' s son in the class, as presi- dent; Ila Wyrick, secretary; John Dusini, treasurer; Mrs. Franklin, teacher; Miss Sawyer, sponsor, we report many good times already past, and we are looking forward to more.

Just Freshmen Class Colors: Blue and White Officers Elmer Bryant President Marie Buchanan Secretary We are the Freshies, sixteen in all, standing on the lowest rung of the Academy ladder, but on lip-toe for the next. We were first in almost everything this year. We set a good example in Chapel programs for all the other classes — which only some followed! Of course we are good natured; didn ' t we allow the Sophomores to go with us to California Gulch on a picnic? But the pleasure was really ours after all. Not long after this they entertained us with a joyful party at the Presi- dent ' s home. To show our appreciation of this party we reciprocated with a second jolly picnic. We lost several of our number at the close of the first half of school, but when the second semester rolled around it brought us new and brilliant lads and lassies. We have had other trials, for we lost our class president and two treasurers, without however, any damage done to our class spirit (or to our treasury!) Nex t year we will be " Wise Fools, " able to carry out our educational plans and policies. We are very grateful to our teachers who have worked patiently with us, correcting present wrongs and presenting future ideals. M. B., ' 30. Chronicles — Completed November 25 — Turkey Day. Banquet.

W I J Miss Grace Wilson came to us two weeks ago to hold a series 1 of meetings jointly with the Methodist Church. She preached at the college chapel in the morning at 9:30 and at the church at night. The meeting at the church continued another week. Miss Wilson has been the most unusual woman evangelist it has been my privilege to hear. She has a wonderful voice and a great personality. She is a logical thinker and has an excellent pulpit style. Miss Wilson is a woman of much power and is always pleasing in presenting the Gos- pel or in personal conference. She is fearless but filled with the Holy Spirit. We have never had a more acceptable and more effective evan- gelist in our college revivals. A large number of our students were definitely blessed in the meet- ings. Many more were converted for the first time and others were restored and many life problems were prayed through. One morning in the chapel twenty-six students were definitely blessed in the altar service. The work of the revival seems to have been of the type that is cal- culated to last. While Miss Wilson was greatly admired and loved by all, she not only attracted people to herself, but the Gospel that she preached. The college wishes for the continued favor of God upon her work, and we hope that she may be a frequent visitor in Union College. E. T. FRAXKLIN, President. From the " Orange and Black.

But we get there just the same. 49 Football Season, 1926 ONE word and describe Union College football for the season of 1926. That word is Fight — with special emphasis on the capital F. Some thirty energetic boys, sacrificing sweets, tobacco and leisure hours, answered Coach Wolfe ' s call for recruits. His ambition was to give Union a fight- ing, if not a winning, team. Those who saw the Bulldogs play, know he succeeded. The Bulldogs first met the strong Hiwasse eleven. The Hiwasse team had played a game or two before and we re veterans. Nevertheless, they had the biggest fight of the season to make one touchdown, winning by the small score of 6-0. Athens came next, and Union, outweighted, and facing a more experienced team, lost, 26-6. The first home game was a triumph for the Bulldogs. St. Mary ' s was beaten 39-3. Eastern State Normal came, saw and conquered, 47-7. After a trip of two hundred and thirty- six miles, to Bluefield, W. Va., our scrappy team lost gallantly to the tune of 32-6. The students turned out en masse to see the Bulldogs play L. M. U., our rival of long years. In the last few minutes of the game, aided by some lucky breaks, L. M. U. made sixteen points, winning 16-0. Morehead, confident of victory, came to Union and was held to a tie, 6-6. Thanksgiving dawned, grey and drizzily. At the hour of the game with Campbellville, a pale sun struggled through the gray clouds to wit- ness their defeat on the muddiest field ever kneaded by spiked shoes. The Bulldogs took the game, 8-6. The following men were awarded letters : Bill Messkr (Captain) Halfback Houston Fuller Fullback Emerson Cobb Guard Teh Beddow Tackle Happy Mayhew Halfback Jim Messer Tackle Ben Dishman (Captain-Elect) End Ross Harkness Tackle Chick Lawson Halfback Teddy Poe Guard Stanley Faulkner Center Maurice Vincent Halfback Roy Nelson End J.

Varsity Basketball Chick Lawson Forward George Gallagher Forward Walter Messer Center Ben Dishman Guard Happy Mavhew Guard AlONZO Whitls Forward Bill Messer Guard Jim Messer Center Fred Putnam Guard J. C. Hall Manager 5 Varsity Basketball E ' OOTBALL did in no way end the ambition of the Bulldogs. In less than two weeks after the last game, there was on the Gym floor the fastest bas- ketball team this college has ever seen. The first team was composed of Chick Lawson and George Gallagher, forwards ; Grinny Messer, center, and Happy Mayhew and Ben Dishman, guards. Chick and George scored more than half the points of the season. Two faster or flashier players would be hard to find. Ben Dishman, a former All-Southern guard from G. M. A., held down his position in a brilliant way. Happy Mayhew, who has played on Union ' s varsity for three years, could dribble the ball down the floor through the most formid- able defense. Grinny Messer with his height and accurate shooting was a valuable man. It was unusual to see Bill Messer on the second team, but when he did get into the fray he played the sure, steady game that makes him a good man. Alonzo Whittis, Fred Putnam and Teaberry Howard showed up well when they got their chance to play. Our big game was with Centre College. Sure of victory they came. Even some students of Union expected defeat at their hands. But not so the fighting Bulldogs. With breath-taking speed they rolled up goal after goal until the bang of the finishing pistol told of Centre ' s defeat. A crowd from Cumberland came to see their team meet the Bulldogs in our Gym. Both sides showed remarkable pep and sporting spirit in their cheering. Our invinc- ible team was more than a match for the Williamsburg contingent; a previous defeat on their floor had made our players more anxious than ever to win, and by lightning plays they ran up the score that spelled Cumberland ' s defeat. More games than can be recorded were played with the dash and spirit that char- acterizes a Union College Bulldog from an ordinary player. Out of sixteen games with some of Kentucky ' s most formidable teams, ten were, by fast playing, put on the right side of the ledger. Next season Grinny Messer and Ben Dishman will be in the college department and it is rumored the Bulldogs will try for the state championship. Total number of points scored : Union 509 Opponents 4S0 The Stespean, -Nineteen Twenty-Seven Girls ' Basketball, 1926 Eula Mae Warren , Captain and Right Forward Eula Mae has been captain and right forward for two years. She is a sterling worker who can always be depended on in any emergency. Never did she ask her team to do that which she did not do; she always led. Edith Gothard, Left Forward Edith was our flashy little forward from Cumberland. When she took her little hop we we were always sure of a two-point gain. We are expecting much of her next year. Prince Surgerner, Captain-Elect and (.enter Prince possesses fine qualities for center, being tall, sure on her feet, and high spirited. We feel that she will lead her team on to many victories next year. Elizabeth Blackburn, Right Guard Small but wiry, quick and canny, Elizabeth is a determined little fighter. She knows the art of slipping through the toughest defense. A born player. Zelma Wells, Left Guard When Zelma was guarding under her opponent ' s goal, her teammates always felt safe, for she was on her toes every moment. Though slight in stature, Zelma showed no fear of the tall- est players. Myrtle Foley, Sub-Center and Guard Myrtle showed good form when she did get into the conflict, which was often. Her favorite expression was, " Pass it. " THELMA Ray, Sub-Guard Thelma was truly a terror to her teammates as well as to her opponents, whom she certainlv made step lively. Thelma was unusually faithful to dailv practice. The Scrubs All the others who came out and took the rigorous training and made possible the first team. We all thank you and appreciate you.

Turner Academy Basketball The Academy boys played a fast game of basketball, but were up against heavier and more experienced teams in almost all of their games. Out of eight games, three were decisive vic- tories, and five were dropped to their opponents after a gallant battle. Corbin High School was beaten on their own floor the first of the season by the plucky little Bullpups. The return game was played on Union ' s floor with Corbin again holding the short end of the stick. Over Manchester High was our other victory, to the tune of 20-15. Barbour- bille High and the Baptist ' s team both clashed with the Bullpups, but all four games went to the outsiders. At the tournament in Pineville, our team drew Middlesboro, the team picked to carry off all honors. Although they fought spiritedly, our side lost, the final score being 33-11. Tennis Season for 1926 Five straight victories and no defeats constitute the unsurpassable record made by the second intercollegiate tennis team ever sent forth by Union College. Lincoln Memorial University went down in defeat before the Orange and Black racqueteers once; Cumberland was defeated both here and on her own court s; Sue Bennett lost both at home and here. On the boys ' team were Denver Miller, Milburn Taylor, Stanley Black and Frank Davidson. For the girls the players were Carol Rippere, Margaret Rippere, Catherine Lay and Eula Mae Warren. J. C. Hall was a capable manager. " Mike " Hawn and Bill Messer proved to be trusty subs. In the tournament among the boys of the college for individual supremacy there were thirty- two entries. Stanley Black won, with Frank Davidson runner-up. Carol Rippere defeated Eula Mae Warren in the finals of the girls ' tournament. The enthusiasm manifested by the whole school this year in tennis was partly due to the splendid courts and equipment provided by the college, and partly to the contagious enthusiasm and co-operation of Prof. Rippere, our coach. The team for 1927 will not be able to surpass this enviable record but we do hope they can equal it. All the other colleges, still stinging under defeat, are out for Bulldog blood. L. M. U. is especially anxious for " that return match. " Baseball, 1927 Spring came to Union College, bringing with it green grass, leafy trees and base- ball fans. Before the diamond was dry enough to play upon, the Bulldogs were out twirling curves, drops, and all the twist that could be put to the leather sphere to fool the keen-eyed batters. After one short week of practice Coach Wolfe ' s selected nine met Ohio Wesleyan, a well-known and skilled team. However, our boys held them to io-l, which we con- sider a good game. Other teams were met by the Orange and Black — some bringing defeat, some bringing victory. However, two triumphs over our ancient rivals this early in the season is a record to be proud of. At the end of the season we are sure the review of baseball will show splendid playing on the part of our team.

S. Dyer Faculty Adviser The " Orange and Black " had its beginnings in 1922, at the suggestion of George Ryder, then an Academy Junior. Ben R. Hynes was the first ed.tor and Joseph A. Metcalf, manager. The purpose of the paper was to record campus life and to furnish an outlet for student literary effort. The entire paper was managed by the Junior Academy Class and supported by subscriptions. The staff of ' 23, Charles Heidrick, Jesse Faulkner, and Corbin Melton, is worthy of note. They closed the year ' s work with twenty-five dollars in the bank. In 1925-26 the " Orange and Black " became a college publication of news value only. In 1926-27, the College assumed part of the financial responsibility ; the " Orange and Black " thus became a full-fledged college paper. 1 — iiiiiiV- La Societe F rancaise Under the excellent guidance of Elizabeth Chandler, president, La Societe Francaise has suc- cessfully completed its third year of existence. Several programs, whose purpose was to further interest in spoken French, have been given. These programs consisted of student compositions written in French; French songs and French poems. One of the chief accomplishments of the club in this work was learning, in French, the Marseillaise. Another interesting phase of the club ' s activities was the study of Le Petit Journal. This paper, whose purpose is to bring French students close to modern France, is published in America, and gives extracts from the leading French dailies. Of the social functions participated in by the members, the party given in honor of St. Val- entine was the most enjoyable. An unusually large number was present. The two club sponsors arc Prof. Rippere, who teaches college French, and Carol Rippere, a student-teacher of begin- ning French. As a whole, the work of this club has been interesting and beneficial to all its members and officers. It is hoped that next year the department will again organize La Societe Francaise. The Classical Club Officers J. C. Hall President Elmer Robinson Vice-President Lucretia Williams Secretary-Treasurer Dr. Rippere Sponsor The Classical Club was organized in the fall with last year ' s Latin Club as a nucleus. Our present organization has now widened its scope to take in all students who are enrolled in the classical language courses. The club has enjoyed a rather dormant condition this winter, arousing itself only for a few chapel programs, which showed what we could do when stirred to a little effort. Along with the beautiful days of spring our club consciousness was awakened to a new enthusi- asm. We decided on many and varied activities for ourselves. A picture to be presented to the Classical Department — a copy of a much admired old master shown here during the Elson Art Exhibit. Plans for a real picnic are also under way — and we are all set for a classical good time. J. C. H., ' 28. The Stespean, Nineteen Twenty-Seven GIRLS GLEE CLUB men ' s GLEE CLUB Girls ' Glee Club aNION COLLEGE had a- very good Girls ' Glee Club this year. School opened with an unusual number of good voices. Christine Sharp led the sopranos, Flonnie Miller led the second sopranos and Sadie Kelley led the altos. Last fall at the dramatic and musical recital given by Miss Black and Mr. Denny, the Girls ' Glee Club sang several songs, which were very well received and which showed that the girls have talent. During Education Week the club sang at the Upper Cumberland Education Association, which met at the First Baptist Church in Barbourville. This year the girls adopted uniform dresses, which they wore at their recitals during the second semester. During Music Week the club gave a recital on Saturday night. Their program was com- posed of a collection of songs, including a negro spiritual, hymn of praise, Carmen Waltz, Morn Rise, and several others. They also made a tour to nearby towns giving their program which was interspersed with piano selections by Christine Sharp. The progress made by this organization this year should be an inspiration to a continuance of the work next year. B. B. M en s Glee Club The Men ' s Glee Club of Union College is distinguished this year, not only by its quality, but also by its quantity. Added to the student membership were some of our professors, Coach Wolfe, Mr. Rackley and Professor Dyer. During the first semester the men sang several numbers in the recital given by the Dramatic and Music Departments under the joint leadership of Miss Black and Professor Denny. They also sang at the Upper Cumberland Education Association when it met in the Baptist Church in Barbourville last October. March 19, at the Elson Art Exhibit, which was held in the Gymnasium, this organization performed in a very delightful manner for our guests. On Saturday night of Music Week, the Men ' s Glee Club joined the Girls ' Glee Club in rendering a program which was a real treat to the music lovers, not only of Union College, but of Barbourville as well. Many members of this group had solo parts in the cantata, " Saul. " Christine Sharp accom- panied them and assisted them in their musical endeavors by her unusual ability as a pianist. The club made a tour of the nearby towns, giving their programs which represented the culmina- tion of the year ' s work. These programs were, in every case, very enthusiastically received. 30. The Education Association An Education Association has been formed at Union College this year under the auspices of the Department of Education, headed by Mr. Rackley. No such association has been in existence at Union previous to this; it is thought that this organization will stimulate interest in educa- tional problems which we may have to face as teachers. The society was organized at the beginning of the second semester with the increased enroll- ment in the educational work. The officers elected were: President, Robert Mays; vice-president, Mayme Hensley; sec ond vice-president, Dorothy Baugh; secretary and treasurer, Floyd Wagers; sponsor, Mr. Rackley. The constitution, which was written and adopted by the association, provides for the admission of anyone not enrolled in the Education courses who has already completed six hours of Educa- tion. Regular meetings were held the second Monday of the month in the Gymnasium, where business was discussed and good times enjoyed. The outstanding social event of our club season was the hike to the beautiful summer resort, Dishman Springs; we all voted this a perfect picnic in every way. The aim of the organization is to train teachers to become better leaders in the communities of which they will be a part, so that they will be able to enter into community as well as school activities in a sympathetic, helpful way. J. B., ' 30. The Stespean, Nineteen Twenty-Seven DRAMATIC CLUB Un ion s Cho rus The efforts of Professor Denny, head of the Music Department, have given Union College a chorus of fifty or more voices. Since it is yet in its infancy the chorus has not accomplished many things, but what it has accomplished has been of the highest quality. During the first semester a recital was given at which the group made its debut by presenting " The Anvil Chorus, " by Verdi. During Music Week the wonderful old cantata " Saul, " was admirably given. The words of this cantata were taken directly from the Bible and set to music. The most important roles of the cast were: Saul, Maurice Vincent; Samuel, Fred Rigsby ; David, Mr. Rackley; Jonathan, Taylor Jarvis; Michal, Sadie Kelley; Abigail, Christine Sharp; the witch of Endor, Flonnie Miller. This cantata has been given under the auspices of Mr. Denny several times and has always met with great success. One of the most important features of the organization is the fact that the members get train- ing which will help those who are to be teachers to direct singing in their schools. J. B. Book ¥ ' r )e eatures Social Notes— Entertainments OL RING Commencement Week of 1926 two great social events were inaugurated which we all hope will become yearly oc- currences. Just ask any ot the athletes if they enjoyed the Varsity Banquet. All the letter men and women were there with the " one and only " and spent one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year. The Booster Banquet, too, was a huge success. The student body, the faculty, trustees, alumni, all helped to make it a gala occasion. Early in the first semester we spent three enjoyable evenings with the Redpath Chautauqua. Among the most popular features of their pro- gram were the Swiss Bell Ringers and the play, " Applesauce. " At Thanksgiving the college gave the student body and their guests a ban- quet at which much turkey was consumed and many jokes cracked. The recital of the Music and Expression Department was a veritable treat for the lovers of these arts, as was the Elson Art Exhibit in the Gym. In May, Mine. Grey-Levinne, the world ' s greatest violinist, rendered a concert here which was of the highest quality. There have been various socials and parties in the Gym, the Hal- lowe ' en Mask Party being the most brilliant. Speed Hall has proffered many good times in the form of rook parties and teas. The French, Classical and Educational Clubs have all had their good times, specializ- ing in picnics. In fact, with the spring season, nearly every afternoon sees a party setting off to some of the beautiful spots near Barbourville to revel in the mountain scenery and the joys of the nationally famous " hot dog. " Commencement will see the social calendar filled with gay events and will serve to make stronger the " tie that binds. " M. M. R., ' 29 WHO S WHO AT UNION Susie Langden Denver Miller BEST LOOKING Eula Mae Warren Bill Messer BEST SPORTS The Stespean, Nineteen Twenty-Seven An Esoteric Story (Dedicated to Henry Payne) CHE campus of Union College lay lush in the sun; gallinaceous fowls were wandering about, finding sustenance in plenitude. Among the shifting groups, an athletic youth found that a chance collocation left him exposed to the screed of a maiden whose limpid eyes and pellucid English were equally attrac- tive despite her anger. He at once turned an oppugnant back, but she only bridled and went on with her tirade. She said he had failed to observe the amenities of com- mon courtesy the day before when she met him on the road. His cacophonous laugh- ter smote the air. " That is easily explained, " he offered. " Bess, my piebald mare, with apparently malignant desire, curvetted so quickly that I was thrown off and you came along before I had time to orientate myself, as I was a little cunctatious in regaining con- sciousness. " This was the crux of their quarrel. With tacit consent they began to bandy words recklessly. She flung out, " I never saw such crass neglect. Surely you visited your father ' s tantalus and imbibed a strong potation just before that. " His cachinnations filled the air. " You are a parlous damsel, " was his tactful reply, " but that idea is not viable. It is flaccid and cannot stand the attrition of keen scrutiny. It is indeed sheer bathos. Your mimetic mind has tried to fasten on me the habits of the protagonist of the latest farce you have seen. But I see no malevolence in your countenance. " With great address he tried to retrieve himself. " Why, " he cried, " I would immolate myself for your success. I would do anything to win you. I would even be the crucifer in a macabre procession. " But all in vain.

" inquired a small boy of a patent meilicine ■ I ■ barker ' V I m " Well, sonny, I ' ll tell ye. Ten year come last May I had a turrible spell of rheumatics and my wife, she ' s got a little Indian blood in ' er, she went out in the pasture an ' scraped gum off pine trees, dug up the roots of ever cedar sprout on the place, boiled some resin up, and all together she got the firedest, hottest, stickiest mess this side of a place little boys only read about in Sunday School papers. Well, she rubbed that on me and put me to bed under a wool comfort inherited from her ma. " The barker stopped to chew the corner of his mustache and contemplated a bottle of the stuff that was giving rise to all this harangue. The little boy continued to look helpful for a while, but finally got impatient. " Well, mister, how ' ed that make that speech of yours? " The barker looked pleased. " Well, sir, don ' t you know ? As for my shirt, it stuck, and that wool comfort stuck the rest of the way, and sonny, when I went to get out o ' there I decided to stay awhile. But I had to come out some time so with my wife aholt of one corner of that comfort and me aholt o ' the door I got out. But I spent the next six months growing new hide and do ou know how I growed it? I put some of that stuff on it. " The barker ceased to talk again. The small boy, remembering the last wait, did not let so much time pass before asking his next question. " But, mister, how ' d that make that speech? " " O, yes. Well, after the neighbors heard of this they all wanted some, and the first thing you know my wife an ' me weren ' t doing nothing but making that stuff. And then one day I took some to a neighboring town to a friend of mine and wuz atellin ' him about it on the street kinda public-like, and the first thing you know I had a crowd around me bigger ' n the Baptist preacher has at church on footwashin ' day, and this is all I wuz atellin ' him. Yes, sir, best balm this side of the pearly gates. Soothing, healing, lasting. A little bit goes a lon g wavs. Good for all ills. I give my baby some for the colic and the dog some for the fleas — equally good in both cases. Took the dandruff out of my gal ' s hair; made it dark and curly. Put it on a nigger ' s kinks; makes ' em straight and turns ' em light. Better ' n Stewart tablets for dys- pepsia and better ' n Stern ' s paint for your barn roof. Mends boots and kill flies. Yes, sir, Oil of Seven Pines; best all round medicine in the world. ' " E. C.
