HE WORK of a historian is evidently to write a history, and history has been defined as " the narration of the events which have befallen mankind. " Histories to be read must be entertaining as well as in- structive and must possess a certain amount of veracity. The present historian feels her inability to properly narrate the events which have befallen the Junior Class of 1908, but certainly with the strictest veracity, much could be said of this class, which would be both interesting and instructive (?). In our Freshman days we set our standards and realized that, " Heights by great men won and kept, Were not won by sudden flight. But while their companions slept Were toiling upwards in the night. " With this one idea in view we soon passed out of the Freshman Class into a wider realm of knowledge and classification known as the Sophs. Our path was not the smoothest thing in the world, for the way of the Sophomore, like that of the transgressor, is hard. Some few of our Soph stud- ies were easy ; English, for example, was looked upon as quite a snap, but it didn ' t appear at exams in that light. Doubtless our essays, especially on " Mil- ton ' s Paradise Lost " will be handed down to future generations as models by the Faculty. Math., however, is a " Slough of Despond " where even Seniors have been known to get stuck, and Latin, too, is not a bed of roses by any means, judgi ng from the length of time that it takes some members of the class to get their lessons. Since we have sung of our Freshman troubles and Sophomore trials, of days we have toiled, the joys and sorrows we have had, we, as Juniors, discov- ered there were few things after all which we didn ' t know. But now these days are passed and we are enjoying the latter half of our college life — that half in which we realize that then, if ever, we must retrieve a lost reputation — that we are upper classmen, with whom, together with the Seniors, it lies to maintain the honor of the University, and that in another year, if all goes well, we will be called to bid farewell to our dear old Alma Mater, and the scenes we love so well. May we remember our successes with pride, and our defeats as well, for they were all honorable. May the standards and ideals, which we have made and realized, remain with us in the days which are coming. " Let us, then, be up and doing, With a heart for any fate, Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait. " -Historian. 31 October 19. The way we beat A. and M. Football Team ivas a shame (?). 3fumor Claaa oem. Of five girls and one man, I sing Who in the year nineteen and nine, Having suffered much, conquered everything, Will go out into the broad worlds confine. Minerva, the Junior ' s patron goddess, Has drawn aside the future ' s veil, And reveals a life of perfect bliss, To five of the members, without fail. And I see flitting before mine eyes, A modern moving picture show, And in each scene, to my surprise, Is a dear old Junior of long ago. I see a costly edifice, Packed with a mighty, surging crowd, And many more the ushers dismiss, Who beg to enter and cry aloud. I see the crowd sway to and fro, And when I finally see the one, Whose matchless eloquence moves them so, It proves to be Eugene Jackson. A couple strolling in the moonlight. He : " Don ' t you love me, Leila Sue ? " And then to his supreme delight, She sweetly answers : " Course I do. " Now I ' m in an art studio, And by one of the students, I ' m told, " All of these tapestries, you know, Were done by the famous Miss Arnold. " 32 October 20. Dr. Savage and Dr. Conger returned from State Convention. Then I see a jolly crowd throwing rice, And I soon catch on that it ' s wedding day, When I hear someone give the advice, " You ' d as well let Bess have her own way. " And now appears a brown stone front, And the mistress and master of the house, Where they ' re " pulling off " a " society stunt, " Are Etna Gammill, and her spouse. The last scene that appeared to me, A maiden, lank, minus teeth or hair, Was enough to make one laugh with glee; There were cats and parrots everywhere. As I was enjoying this comic scene, There came a voice I ' ll ne ' er forget, Which said : " The spinister, lank and lean, Is Lillian Eades. " — Class Poet Yell.

But when I remember that only ten short years have passed since we enjoyed such days, I begin to wonder where are my classmates and what are they doing ? Looking upon the records of the past few years, I find that Mr. I. W. Shan- non, who while in school was a very apt youth, has become a very prosperous merchant, and is steadily amassing a great fortune. Next, I find that Mr. Thurman B. Givan is now Professor of Latin and Greek at Union, and daily gives his students this advice : " Equo ne credite, " for he realizes what he himself might have gained. Ourie Koffman has decided that there is more happiness in a life of single- ness, and is now an old maid instructor, teaching in the hills of her native country. Henry W. White i-; Director of Athletics in one of the leading Eastern col- leges, and has an enviable reputation in his profession. Mack N. Davis, who for several years after his graduation was teacher of Expression at Union, we find daily entertaining thousands as a humorous lect- urer. Herron C. Pearson, who is recognized as the " Silver Tongued Orator of the South, " is one of the leading politicians of his state, and an " idol " of the peo- ple. Mr. J. C. Greenoe, that stalwart advocate of Baptist principles, after some deliberation, has given up the pastorate of one of our leading city churches to accept the editorship of a prominent religious paper. Charles E- Wauford, who abandoned the ministry, was for a few years a civil engineer, but later on quit the use of his instruments and because of the hugeness of his feet is now stepping off government lots in Oklahoma. Baker W. Hensley, who graduated with honors, is now the foremost sales- man for a patent chafing (Chaffin) dish. Malcolm W. Callahan, who having decided to live a life of single blessed- ness, has removed to one of the western states, and is one of the most eminent physicians of that country. C. Harris Brown, one of the most learned men of the country, is to-day the President of Union University, the greatest seat of learning in the South, and is leading with the same dignity that was characteristic of him in his youth. Bert G. Moody, who as a living example of the old adage: " The heights, by great men reached and kept, were not attained by sudden flight, " finally graduated in 1915, is to-day occupying one of the leading pulpits of Chicago. While Grover C. Koffman, the other member of the class, became disgusted with trying to get a college education and quit school in 1913. — Class Prophet. 36 October 21.

We honor all the Seniors and wish them great success, For soon we ' ll don the cap and gown and hope for none the less. We know we have just " lots " to learn, But we ' re not depressed you know, For soon we ' ll make the world discern That we are peers to all it shows. We look with joy to nineteen ten For then our struggling ceases, And soon we ' ll move with a healthy vim And have renown that abroad far reaches.

FTER a hard day ' s work over examinations a short while since, I was seated on the west end of the campus in deep thought when I felt a light touch on my shoulder. I turned and to my surprise I beheld an old woman, low and bent, but with a face that seemed to beam with a divine light. I was unable to speak at first so great was my surprise, but she did not wait for me. " Child, " she said, " you seem to be worried for some reason. I know what it is and I can give you three books that will give you all the knowledge you desire if you will read them. " " Oh, but you can ' t give me what I wish now. It is impossible, " I replied. " I see you don ' t believe in me, " she said, and with that she walked down the street. About a week later, I met this old woman on the street and she looked at me very closely. Finally she approached and called me away from my com- panions. " Child, " she said, " I have come again to make you an offer. You have refused the three books — now one has been destroyed — but I offer you the other two assuring you that you will get the desired knowledge from them if you will promise that you will not let anyone else read them. " " I ' m sure I could not read them alone, " I answered, " so I can not accept them. " " Very well, " she said angrily, " you ungrateful child. " After this second encounter with the old woman, I began to wonder if the books really contained anything of importance. ' But I soon forgot these inci- dents and was on the street again when I met the old woman. This time she did not notice me, but I went to her and said: " Please make me another offer of the books for I am very anxious to know their contents and I ' ll promise to read them alone. " The old woman turned a smiling face toward me, but replied, " I can offer only one book now as the other has been destroyed, too, but it will be an aid to you. Here it is. Now you must destroy it as soon as you read it. " I took the worn book with the title printed across the back in gold letters " Freshman Class in 1930. " When I looked at it I sat in such wonderment and surprise to think that all was to be revealed to me I was unable at first to open it. As I was forbidden to describe the book, I leave it to j our imagination. The future of our President was first revealed there, thus: Lessie Savage 42 November 26. Mr. Felts leaves school. Miss Pacaud becomes despondent. FRESHMAN CLASS. 43 November 21. Expression Class have an interesting session: M. E. Ward teas absent. Mercer is a widow, living in Jackson, having completed her education in 1911 and married in 1912. I suppose it is useless to give our Secretary, Mr. Frank Mercer ' s future as we know he is fond of barbarians. But he failed to finish school and was Judge of the District Court until his death in 1920. Our illustrious Vice-President, Mr. Hartwell Temple, is a practicing physi- cian in the city of Ripley, Tenn., having completed his education in the medical department at Yale. Our Historian, Mr. Carlyle Nuckolls, is a lecturer, assisted by his wife (nee Tommie Ingram) with her beautiful voice. Our Poet, Mr. Tom White, is the most renowned writer of expository essays in the United States. Miss Ewell Chaffin is a traveling advocate of woman ' s rights. Miss Eva Brown is a trained nurse in Bellvue Hospital, New York, after having taken a thorough course in nursing at Philadelphia. Mr. McGee is a professional brick-layer and contractor for large buildings, having acquired a great knowledge of mathematics. Miss Mary Lee Dodson is an artist, renowned for her masterpiece — " A Bunch of Violets. " Miss Eura McCullough is now a reigning belle in New York society, and her greatest delight is to make her husband jealous. Mr. Boone is in New Mexico for his health, having taken consumption through lack of exercise. Miss Ethel Fairleigh is married, living on a farm, raising chickens and keeping strict account of every cent spent. Mr. Eugene Anderson is a missionary in China. Miss Vivian Moore, having acquired great wealth by teaching school, has charge of an old maid ' s home and spends her time in giving large sums of money to charitable institutions. Miss Virginia Hawkins is instructor of Latin and Greek in Vassar. Mr. Curtiss is a thriving merchant in Memphis, Tenn., selling dry goods, groceries, hardware, implements, drugs and novelties. Mr. Lawrence is a chemist known throughout the United States by his dis- covery of an " Unknown. " Miss Margarette Williams is head of a cooking school in Columbia University. Mr. Vernon Medling is playing the role of Hamlet in Manhattan Theatre, New York. Miss Florence Cochran is a concert pianist with the reputation of Paderewski. Miss Christine Patton is soloist in the First Baptist Church, Chicago, 111. I read with haste these futures thinking I would find mine among them, but found only a space where some sheets had been torn out. Evidently the old woman, in her anger, had torn my future from the book. — Class Prophet. 45 November 27. A. W. Hawkes Lectures. E. C.

Horace dear, Utinam tua aurea mediocritas attingat ab ova Ut est modus in rebus et vita brevis; ita est. To the point ; it has come to this, But six weeks more and the Annual must be out ; Nay, not so much ; not six, inasmuch as Money is scarce during commencement week. So excellent an office, with privileges, Business Manager. Tis fine at Lovelace Hall, Where one might converse on special themes, (But a preacher would get off his subject there) At specific times. Coelum et terra ! Must I remember! Why the Dean watches me As if she thought there might be a Quickened pulsation in my left vital organ ! She watches fairly well, and at all times, Even when the manuscript is in my hand In daylight. Why she, even she, A little month, or ere the next exam. In English and Horace must come to pass, The Annual must be paid for, even so. To flunk, or not to flunk, is a question, Whether ' tis better to worry o ' er the Annual, Or learn the metre and odes of Horace. To study, to sleep, No more ; and by study to say we resolve To pass examinations in the various studies Assigned us. ' Tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished. To study, to sleep, To sleep, perchance to flunk. Aye, there ' s the rub, For by that dreamy sleep what grades may come, Must give us pause. Who would these " conditions " bear. To sweat and suffer the freshman ' s facetious jest, When he himself might a sixty make, or be Helped with daily grade? What is a man If his chief purpose and aim in life Be but to do something others will not do? For action, though it have no tongue, may speak In forcible language. I ' ll have these editors Write out the contents of " Lest We Forget " During the next week. I ' ll have grounds relative For this, having planned the financial path.

Co tl)e 2Uumm of WLnion nitoerattp The 1908 Lest We Forget as a whole is a revelation of a progressive spirit to the Alumni of Union, but we take this space to particularly emphasize to those who have once been students of Union that the onward march of progress has had its due influence upon this school. That long- desired change of name has been effected and now those victorious in making- the athletic teams wear the " U " and not the " S. W. B. U. " Not until 1904 did the University publish an Annual, setting out therein the history of the year ' s work. Not until recent years has the campus been properly beautified and not until this year have we had an athletic field conveniently located with reference to the campus. These improvements and numerous others reveal that healthful under-current of interest and enthusiasm of the patrons of Union, which has brought such within the realm of the real, and which will keep the flames of progress ever burning. The history of the school, we, the students of ' 07- ' 08, consider a sacred trust transmitted to us for safe-keeping and the addition of another page, a trust we have endeavored to keep and perform, as an evidence of which we hand down this volume to coming students and exhibit same to the Alumni. 113 W$t Bonng attL Young, handsome Horace Ashwell was rather bored this fine summer morning as he strolled aimlessly about his father ' s large country-place. He had just returned to his Western home after graduation in one of the prominent Eastern Colleges, and he longed for the excitement of the city and college world. While passing a mill he heard singing within, and en tering he met a girl, apparently about seventeen years of age, coming out of the door. She wore a pink calico dress, and from the handle of the basket which she carried on her arm, dangled a white sun-bonnet. Her jet-black hair was parted in front and brushed smoothly back, and braided in two plaits. " What a stunner, for a country girl! " thought Horace. " Dearie, let me carry your basket for you. " She drew back with a ' ' No, thank you. ' ' " Oh, what an airy little lassie, come, give me your basket, but first you must pay toll from those ruby lips. ' ' The healthy glow on her cheeks deepened into a crimson hue, and her laughing black eyes flashed fire as she surveyed him haughtily, without a word. " Come, sweetheart, pay me, or shall I just collect? " he asked, seizing her hand and placing his face unpleasantly near hers. She raised her free hand, and coolly, soundly slapped him in the mouth. Before Horace coiild recover his usual self-possession, the girl had disappeared around the corner. His only audible comment was " The devil! " Whether he applied this epithet to himself, the young lady in ques- tion, or was calling on his Satanic Majesty for aid, remains a mooted subject. For several days Horace hung around the mill in hopes of catching a glimpse of his " boxing-maid, " as he called her. However, she didn ' t come, and when he received an invitation to a house-party at a neighbor- ing country-house, he forgot about her, for in the note inviting him, his friend had mentioned that Miss Virginia Caldwell, a popular young heiress, would be among the guests, and Horace was anxious to meet her. " No, demons, I ' ve never met her, yet her face looks strangely familiar. ' ' Horace was standing in t he door of the large, old-fashioned parlor of the demons country-place, just after his arrival, and something in the noble brow, expressive eyes, and poise of the head of Miss Caldwell impressed him, and he was racking his brain to decide where he had seen her. Miss Caldwell turned, and with a smile, extended her hand when he was presented, but, when their eyes met she withdrew her hand, and again he saw rosy cheeks deepen into crimson, and laughing black eyes Hash fire, and as she coolly said, " I believe, Mr. Ashwell, I have met you, " he recognized his little country " boxing-maid " of the mill episode. The next day he found Miss Caldwell alone, and tried to apologize to her, but she interrupted his flow of eloquence with " I don ' t care to discuss it with you, " and abruptly left him. Every time after that when Horace tried to talk with Miss Caldwell , 114 she rebuffed him, and he went home at the end of the second week, utterly disgusted with himself, and with the lesson well learned that ' it pays always to be a gentleman. He had incidentally learned from demons that Miss Caldwell went to the mill for an old woman who was unable to »o for her grist. To drown his disappointment over his rebuffs, for he really did care for Miss Caldwell, as deeply as his shallow nature would permit Horace spent some months travelling abroad. One evening in a little salon in Paris, when he had been drinking he gambled, lost heavily, quarreled, and was arrested and thrown into prison. Oh, the shame of it ! Arrested and in a common cell ! And he was likely to stay there for he did not have enough money to cable home and ot course, he couldn ' t pay his fine. On his second day in prison, he had a caller, and in the quiet, well- dressed American he recognized his old neighbor, demons. " Ash well, " he said, " you are a free man, but don ' t thank me, for when i saw the account of your arrest, I was for letting you alone but my wife insisted that I aid you, and so, to please her, I have paid your Ashwell thought that he had tasted of the very dregs of his cup of mortification when he was compelled to accept aid of demons but it was some time after his return to the States that he learned that Mrs demons was formerly Miss Virginia Caldwell, the little country " boxing-maid. " L. E. 115 iaetJ. €♦ %. Caton, 2D- 2D. 515L 2D. Thomas Treadwell Eaton was born in Murfreesboro, Tenn., November 16, 1845; the son of Rev. Joseph H. Eaton, the founder of Union Univer- sity. His early education was directed by his father and mother, both, of them possessing the highest and best form of education. In 1861. he left the classic halls of Madison University, of which his uncle. Dr. Geo. W. Eaton, was President, shelved his books, buckled on the sword, joined the Seventh Tennessee Cavalry Regiment and served through the Avar under Gen. N. B. Forest. At the close of the war he returned to Murfreesboro, and taught school one year, and then entered Washington and Lee University, from which he was graduated in 1867 with the highest bonors. winning the gold medal for oratory, and was chosen speaker of tbe class on commencement day. On his graduation he was elected Professor of Mathematics and Natural Science in Union University, serv- ing in this capacitv until June, 1872. During this time he prepared himself to practice law; but feeling called to the gospel ministrv he abandoned the law and was licensed to preach in 1869, and ordained to the full work of the Ministrv and became pastor of the Church of Lebanon. Tenn.. in January, 1870. In 1872 he became pastor of the First Baptist Church of Ghattanooga. In 1875 he accepted the pastorate of tbe Baptist Church of Petersburg. Va. ; and in 1881 he took charge of the " Walnut Street Baptist Church in Louisville, Kv.. to which he p-ave continued service until the rlav of his death, June 29th, 1907. In 1872 he was married to Miss Alice Poberts, daughter of Judge Roberts of Nashville His wife survives him. He also left to the world a brilliant son. Josenh H. Eaton, a successful lawyer in Denver. Colorado, and a beautiful and beloved daughter. Mrs. TVlward Palmer of Louisville. Kv. Soon after moving to Louisville. Dr. Eaton became editor of the " Western Recorder, a religious journal without a peer in the South-land. About this time he became a public lecturer. These are the chronological events in the life of this great, just, good, man. Let us study Dr. Eaton as he appeared in the various phases of life ; for we will not see the like of him again. As student in Union University I knew him well. Though quick to learn, he took ample time to prepare well the designated lesson and when in the class-room he gave a solution to a problem or a translation of a sentence none dared to question its correctness. I took part in his initiation as a member in the Calliopean Literarv Society ; I remember his maiden speech in that society ; though boy as he was he gave utterance to sentiment in burning words that chal- lenged the admiration and moved the souls of members much older than he. He made good the vows he made that day and was ever a true and loyal Calliopean and soon became a leader. He next appears as a soldier in the Confederate army. Here, as elsewhere, he was brave, loyal, faithful, and true, holding the perfect confidence of superior officers, often a trusted courier of Gen. Forrest, at other times on special detail on secret service, at all times and in every trial the same dauntless hero. He next appears as teacher; here he was bright, brilliant, glorious. I have it from Dr. G. M. Savage that Prof. Eaton ' s life and teachings were an inspiration, bringing animation, hope and cheer to the most despondent. As lawyer Dr. Eaton told me he took a thorough course in his preparation ; had one case the fee of which was enough to repay him for the outlay and to pay 116 for his law library; he then turned to the ministry, bidding adieu forever to the seductive charms of the Goddess of Justice and her promising re- wards. From the Bar to the Pulpit! Here I pause, abashed. How can I describe this fearless pulpit orator! He was pre-eminently oratorical and rhetorical, his language flowed rapidly and in sweet cadences, a dreaded torrent when describing sin, its terrible consequences and awful punish- ment ; describing Christianity with its long train of joys, his language still fluent and eloquent was mild and soothing as the summer breeze • impart- ing love, joy, hope, happiness. His language, whether an invective or discantmg, the charm of home, or the loveliness of nature, or the joys of Heaven, was always pure and chaste as the dew distilled on the blossom of the orange tree. As a lecturer he was eminent and successful His great learning and wide reading made him master of all phases of science and knowledge ; and he was alway s ready to speak. Among his last visits to the University after conducting the devotional exercises, he was called on for a speech. He stepped to the front of the rostrum and said " A man to make a speech must have a subject; will some one name me a subject? Panama was suggested. He had recently returned from that country. Immediately he begun a description of the country, the people, the difficulties of constructing the canal, the part the IT. S Government had taken m recent events in that country, so life-like that his hearers lelt that they had made a tour through it all with a master as mide His lectures were full of wisdom, always edifying ; abounding in wit and humor and inflicted no wounds. As editor, " Faith, Hope, Love ■ These Three " was the motto on the first page of the peerless Western Recorder ■ these abounded m every editorial, which were strong, exhaustive and edifying Me attacked error wherever found, not so much to dethrone the errorist as to establish the truth and have his readers properly informed that they might know and embrace the truth. As Trustee for many years he served the University as a faithful counselor; often he had preached the com- mencement sermon; as often delivered the annual literary address- his presence was always an inspiration to teachers, pupils and citizens of Jackson. In addition to his splendid services to the Universitv while living, m his death, Dr. Eaton in giving his magnificent library to the University has given to students of coming years an inspiration ' enjoyed by those who had seen him and enjoyed him. This great gift of books on the subjects of Theology, Literature, Science and History, is not excelled In years to come, the thousands of students who study these books will bless t he memory of Dr. T. T. Eaton and praise God for his life and munificence. tt J 16 WaS als0 the founcler of the medal known as the Joseph H. Eaton Medal, to be awarded annually to the young man " who excels m oratory.
