" Blest be the tie that hinds our hearts " in college love. Our task, though difficult and new. has been pleasant. When the Board of Editors first met, there was manifest on the part of each a determination to make this volume the best yet published. We have Labored with this object in view, hut as we read for the last time the matter before us. there is a feeling of fear that we, too, have fallen below our ideal.

You hold in your hands the fruit of our best efforts. Buy this book; read it; enjoy it (if you can) : preserve it; and patronize its advertisers, whose liberal aid has made possible the publication of this Annual. We believe that no offense will be taken at any article herein contained, but that they will all he received in the spirit id ' pleasantry in which they are meant. If you have been the object of a joke, laugh — that is the purpose of jokes.

There seems to be in the human heart a natural desire to record and hand down to posterity the deeds and doings of men. Our hearts have been thrilled as we have been led by the historian to watch the heroi mdnet of the general on the battle field, as he leads his soldiers through fire and blood to victory. The historian carries us to the Forum and Senate Chamber and permits us to hear those silver-tongued orators of the long- ago. He allows us to watch men as they girdle the globe with steel threads, span continents with iron rails, and mix the waters of one ocean with those of another. The his- torian follows in the footsteps of the explorer, recording his discoveries; he is ever present with the scientist to preserve for mankind the valuable truths brought to light. It has been said, " Of making many hooks there is no end " : nor do we wish there to he an end of making histories. Until the firmament melts with fervent heat and this world lias burned to a cinder, histories will be written, preserved, read, and enjoyed. Just for a few minutes, Ave wish to assume the role of his- torian and write one bright page of history, which shall be nothing more nor less than a history of the renowned and dis- tinguished class of 19lL For a number of years, — in the case of sonic of us, it will be best to leave unsaid the exact number, — we have toiled onward and upward. Our pathway, though thorny and rough, has been strewn with many flowers. We have experienced the truth thai " much study is a weariness of tin ' flesh " ; bu1 we have also found that faithful study is a profit to the mind. Briefly stated, our record is this, " We came, we saw. we con- quered. " We met the Professors in the class rooms ami in the examination halls. They fired a blazing volley of questions at us. but we came out uninjured, save a few " thinks " which. happily for us, did not prove mortal. We have met tin- enemy on every athletic field and have usually come away with their scalps dangling from our belts. Representatives from our class have won little less than Ciceronian distinction in oratory. It is not our aim to trespass upon the prophet ' s duty, but we ar» confident that ere these words shall have spotted the pages of the Annual, the " Demosthenes " of our class will have won a signal victory over his opponents in the State Oratorical Con- test. Every phase of college life, — athletics, literary societies, re- ligious societies, and fraternities, — has received renewed vigor because of the influence and efforts of our class. Among our members are lawyers, doctors, ministers, teachers, bankers, and farmers. " Nil mortalibus ardni est " has been our motto while in Union and it shall ever be. To the Juniors we surrender our togas and bid them maintain the high standard of excellence that we have set for them. To the Faculty we make our most grateful acknowledgments of their patient and painstaking instruction. To our Alma Mater, which now lies humiliated in ashes, we pledge our loyal support and wish that she. Phoenix-like, may arise from the ashes of her former self with three-fold strength and usefulness. CLASS HISTORIAN. junior ©lass Jhropltrnj. Itf XI0X UNIVERSITY in June, lH. ' iii, presented to the 4ti spectator a view which could hardly be surpassed. The ™ old hill, which was once covered with ashes and ruins, was crowned with a magnificent structure. The campus, great- ly enlarged, contained many new buildings. The students, vis- itors and alumni thronged over the campus for it was gradua- tion day for the largest class in the history of Union Uni- versity. About dark everything became silent, all visitors had gone. the building was dark except one small room on the third floor and it had only one dim light. During the bush fourteen mys- terious figures were seen approaching the campus from different directions. These cloaked and silent figures, very quietly with only a few words of greeting, made their way with hesitating steps and stealthy glances to the dimly lighted room. An old man in a very solemn and impressive manner made his way to the table and said in a low but distinct voice: " Fellow class- mates of 1912, according to our promise to each other on the night of June the tenth of that year. Ave have met here to relate to each other our successes and failures in life since that time. Each one will have a few minutes to speak. -Mr. Hastings will speak to us first. " An obi man with a long gray beard and with a peaceful air about him. arose and said in a deep voice: ' ■When 1 left Union University, my first care was to pay that hundred dollar pledge for the new building. I could do nothing else until 1 had finished this (and it took me some time). This done. I took up in earnest my chosen work, the ministry. I have had the eare of several noted churches. Recently 1 have been called for life to the care of the First Baptist Church of St. Louis. My wife and I are always at home to Union students. " Mr. Medling was next called by the president. He arose quickly and took several strides up and down the room before saying anything. The members looked at each other with a smile, but the president sternly shook his head. Finally Mr. Medling spoke: " I can ' t see why some of you have not profited by things you learned in the class rooms . Why, when I sat in the science room and heard Professor Prince lecture on chemis- try, I decided that few things were impossible. When I left college, I had an idea that if a remedy could be found by which a person might maintain bis good and youthful appearance, even though old, it would prove a fortune-making project. I have experimented on myself along this line and think that 1 have made the discovery. I have a sample of the preparation here with me if any of you would like to try : . " " .Mr. Medling. " hastily interposed the president " we have no time to waste on agents. Mr. Boone will speak next. " Mr. Boone rising said: " Mr. President, I feel some hesitancy in addressing this august assembly, as I have not spoken in public since I contested for the Strickland medal. I have spent my time as a merchant, beginning in Jackson, Tennessee: lint I have I n very successful and am now owner of a large department store in Chicago. But I spend most of my time with my family in our quiet country home twelve miles in the country. " The president next called upon Miss Ferguson, who said in a very low voice: " I haven ' t very much to say except that I taught for several years and. during this experience, I became 32 so impressed with the danger of germs and the need for fresh air that I prepared several lectures on these subjects and have been going from one school to another delivering them. The one on the need of fresh air is my specialty. 1 am mi my way now to Pike ' s Peak because the air here is so impure that it is positively distressing. Mr. Gest, the next called, got up quickly and began with a very important air: " I am sure each member of the class has heard of my work during our separation, so it is not necessary to go into details. When 1 left college, 1 was burning with the desire to enlighten the American citizens and to impress upon them facts of our government as presented hy Mr. Miinster- berg, who was a professor of Psychology at Harvard, and who thought that the American people were perfect. But his book, as I think, is full of inaccuracies. I never could understand why. but I did not succeed very well with the lecture course that I prepared on this subject, so I abandoned that idea and began work in a bank and am now president of the First Na- tional Bank of San Francisco. " ilr. Carter, the next, said with great complacency: " I have just won the championship of the United States as baseball pitcher and I think that is enough for me. " " Mr. Fite will speak next, " said the president. In a very dignified manner he began: " When we left school in 1912, Mr. Fowlkes and I decided that nothing was so good to develope the brain as school-teaching, so we chose that as our work . We began as teachers in preparatory schools, but now 1 am president and Mr. Fowlkes the main instructor in the University of Cuba, one of the leading schools of the world. " " Mr. Roberts, " said the president. This tall, bearded man arose and with a great amount of dignity began: " Ladies and gentlemen of the jury. I presume that all knew of my intentions before we left school, but " ill say that I have had great success as a lawyer, and am now in the race for governor of Tennessee, and would like to ask your support at the next election. " Here he was stopped by a hollow sounding tap upon the table and Mr. Sanford took the floor. ' [ have had great success as a physici an, and am now chief surgeon in the hospitals of New York.

" This was heartily seconded and Mr. Shelbourne arose from the president ' s chair and came forward. " I can relate in a few words all that is necessary of my life since I left Union.

It is. dine generations to avoid thi cords of nations and men, and, ;ils the secret of their success to some extent, a help to suc- mistakes and grasp the better will part of the lives of those who have gone on before. Thi: apply to small groups as well as nations. In the autumn of 1909, a little group of students were awak- ened to the realities and responsibilities of a Freshman class, of which we had dreamed so long. We found ourselves little and insignificant and felt at first that we could never make ourselves felt; but before the year had passed we found that one of our members by his matchless eloquence as a Freshman, had won in an inter-collegiate contest. Encouraged and urged on by the little success that we had in our Freshman year, we returned with a determination to help uphold everything that is worthy and beneficial in college life. Realizing the opportuni ty and the responsibilities resting upon us. and knowing as we did that others were watching and expecting much of us. we gave our time to hard ami diligent study, the story of which would be interesting only to those who have experienced the same. Again, we were glad when we learned that one of our mem- bers had not only been industrious as a student, but had been active on the athletic field and had won fame as a basket-ball player. We were indeed glad when we again gathered on the campus of " old Union, " assembled to elect a president of our class, and take up the mantle of the Juniors. We have now reached the point where Ave can look back with pleasure upon the two pre- vious years of our college life, and we are able as never before to enjoy our work and college friendship. We can realize that the greater the knowledge of college life and its functions, the greater the interest. With this fact in view, we are looking forward to next year ' s work with intense interest. After that, the scene shifts to the different places where we are to meet the world ' s demands. Does the world need us. ' We believe so. " A solemn murmur in tin- soul tells of a world in need; As travelers hear the billows roll before they reach the sea.

Though there are r a lew white hairs on my head now, I could not help feeling young again. While I was being conducted over the campus by Dr. T. D. Coffey, who had taken his LL.D. in the Louisville Seminary and had recently accepted th e presidency of Union, I noted the changes that had taken place on the cam- pus. Instead of the old building which burned during my Junior year, there was a handsome building, three stories high and twice as long as the old one. It made the campus show up much better. We went in the main entrance and, while talking with Dr. Coffey, there came to mind my old friend Goad, who was also a member of the 1912 Junior class. After receiving his diploma from Union, he had taken special training in the University of Chicago and had been teaching Mathematics and Science at Union for the past three years. We went up to see him and found him busy with his Math. I. I remained through the reci- tation and enjoyed very much recalling fond recollections of my Mathematics course. I was introduced to a very charming little fellow in the class by the name of E. J. Puryear, Jr., and immediately I called to mind E. J. Puryear who was with me in college. Upon inquiry I found that this was a son of the same E. J. Puryear. Mr. and Mrs. Puryear were residing in Kentucky and. having become very wealthy, they were sending their child to " old Union. " I found that the young man was good in class work, but showed decided preference to basket- ball, football, and athletics in general. I immediately con- cluded that he came by it naturally. Prof. Goad and I went over to his home where we enjoyed an elegant luncheon which had been prepared by his better half. I enjoyed my visit very much, but I had to make it short, since I had to leave to perform a very important operation in Chicago, where I had lately built my new hospital. Bidding farewell to Union, I boarded the Seminole Limited at 7:30 and awoke the next morning in Chicago. CLASS PROPHET. 41 Junior (Elass {farm.

JN a dream of my fellow classmen. 1 was with them in many of the happy hours of life. 1 saw each as ho sometimes slowly but always surely overcame the ob- stacles in his path leading ' towards greater things. As I had seen them in the front in college, I now saw them leading in the affairs of the world. I saw our President work his way to the high position of ,i Supreme Court judge in his home state, and Judge Owen is known throughout the country. A visit through the Alexander-Cotton Wholesale Furniture Co., the largest of its kind in the South, was a source of much pleasure. Manager Frey acted as guide and explained the vast enterprise to me. I was with Thomas J. Murray, Jr., fighting for the rights of the Standard Oil Co. and saw him worthy of being called " the greatest corporation lawyer in America. " I stood just outside the Senate chamber and shook the hand of the " Bachelor Statesman " Senator Roberts. I asked why this title had been necessary and he only responded : " He could visit the theater while I had to wrestle with Milton, Shake- speare and others. " He then departed very quickly and 1 turned to see one formerly Miss Anderson and with her was " the Secretary of Education, " whom I remembered well. And next in this pleasant dream there appeared Attorney Wickliffe, President of the Southern Coal Mines of America. Raymond Puryear informed me that they did a very extensive business. The modest manager refused to talk much of the busi- ness of the company, insisting that we make ready to hear a former classmate that evening lecture on " The Demon Whis- key. " Mr. Johnson had made a name and much money as a criminal lawyer in Xew York and was spending it to benefit " our boys. " I was with Dr. Carter in his private sanitarium on the Hud- son and there we discussed the reputation among the European critics of Dr. Freeman. Dr. Carter took great pleasure in in- forming me that his reputation of the " Renowned Doctor " of China was based on facts. Dr. Ilolcomb. who had been preaching to the yellow heathens, spoke in high terms of Dr. Freeman. 1 fought through the jungles of Africa with Chief-Engineer Williams and Manager McCrory and saw them in all their glory when the African trans-continental railroad was a reality. They had aided greatly the progress of civilization and had made fortune and name for themselves. And then the scene was changed — a beautiful campus, many large buildings and upon the main one of these was " UNION. " CLASS PROPHET. 49 Bapfynmate (Elass Tjftstnnj. ■r 1IK first action of the Sophomore class was taken in behalf III of the lower classmen, the Freshmen. Having never ■ been stigmatized with the name Freshmen, they sought to advise the Freshmen to go and do likewise. As the first noticeable conduct of the Freshmen was to be heard as well as seen, the Sophomores informed them that they should " study to be quiet, " telling them that this command was from the Bible as well as from the Sophomores. Whereupon one of the Freshmen replied: " The Bible says that Judas went and hanged himself. (Jo thou and do likewise, and what thou doest do quickly. " He asked if they thought he was going to do what the Bible said. The Sophomores exhibited wonderful forbearance, and for many days they attempted to indoctrinate and edify their plumberous cerebrosities by the gentle use of persuasion, but in vain. They continued to be heard all over the campus and buildings, and as green as when they left the tall timbers. The Sophomores saw that they would have to resort to harsher methods: so they ordered some paddles well ventilated with holes. A committee was sent to notify the Freshmen to pre- pare for the clash. " When they saw that the Sophomores were going to use such striking arguments, they had a call n ting at 12 o ' clock at night and decided, in behalf of their persona! feelings, to adopt the decree as final. Dealing with the Freshmen was nol the only tiling that the Sophomores did to place their names on the scroll of honor. This is one of their first actions and is mentioned at length to show how thoroughly they do things. From the first meeting, they began to attract attention. No complete records were kept of their proceedings and debates. If they had been kept and published, they would have rivaled the congressional records for the same length of time. When it was known that the Sophomores were to have a meeting, the room was so crowded that standing room was at a premium. It soon became neces- sary for them to meet with closed doors. It was an axiom of theirs, never to do anything hastily. They gave much thought and deliberation to all matters brought up. for frivolous matters were never presented. After two weeks of discussion and deliberation they choose, as their representa- tive on the annual staff, one whose bead is as an ever-glowing sphere. It was suggested by some that it would be a good idea for the Sophomores to have two representatives, but equal rep- resentation is the foundation of all republican government. When nature makes men great in this or that line, she often leaves them in others, like Samson, with shorn locks as weak as other men: but not so with the Sophomores. She was uniform in distributing her gifts. She not only gave them power in thoughts and words but in deeds and in actions. There was not an athletic contest in which the Sophomores were not con- spicuous. They were in the majority on the basket-ball court ami had an equal representation on the gridiron, diamond and tennis court. Their class teams were undefeated. The wise Seniors saw that it was to the preserving of their scalps not to accept any challenge from the Sophomores. The Freshmen (if 50 you will pardon me for mentioning them again) had the audac- ity to accept a challenge on the basket-ball court. It was agreed, for the Freshmen ' s sake, not to let the score be known. The closing days of the school year were a joyous time to the Sophomores. En a stately manner they unbound the sophisti- cated togas and lei them men, who look t hem pro Sophomores ' minds were that would be thrust up dl upon the shoulders of the Fresh- sing to be Freshmen no more. The rcupied with thoughts of the honor Union University two years hence. they should be adorned with caps and gowns. CLASS HISTORIAN ' . 51 ujiltmnnrr Gllass Jfrmn.

Wondrous scenes of celestial embellishment and sublimity were in the ascendency. The stars were fast adorning the dome of heaven; and the moon, mounting above the horizon, assumed a position of eminence. Like a gushing fountain, the grandeur of ethereal magnificence was pouring its radiance in myriads of colors from every flaming orb. All was tranquil and serene. The moon, from its advantageous position in the sky, gleamed with regal lustre and superiority; and the rays from that golden sphere, dispelling darkness in every re- gion, displayed itself in unsurpassable splendor on the tim- bered campus. What a gorgeous and impressive scene ! Lured by such environments of nocturnal grandeur, I ven- tured from my room for a roam on the campus to behold the canopy of astral glories and the amazing actions of Nature. How beautiful and enticing was the spectacle ! I looked into the dome of heaven, serene and sublime, and then surveyed my terrestial surroundings. What a scene of love and lamentation pierced my heart ! Deep sorrow enveloped my soul. Above me were the splendors of the firmament; at my feet the smoldering ruins of beloved Union. An object of admiration, of fond and hallowed memories, vanished forever! How could the soul of an individual withstand that deplorable scene at such an hour! Startled by a voice of exquisite sweetness, I turned and — lo — before me stood Apollo, the famed prophet of mythology, hold- ing a scroll in his hand and entreating me to cease my sorrow. I could not speak. Handing me the scroll and assuring me of Union ' s resurrection into still greater glory and renown, he vanished like a fleeting dream. I returned to my room immediately after the mysterious visitation for the purpose of examining the nature of the scroll. I knew it must set forth some revelation. And as I delved into its contents, I was thrilled with interest and delight, lor it revealed the prophecy of each member of the 1915 class. It told of the many years that would elapse after their final departure, filled with their great achievements in the University of Life. As it would not be sagacious to give the entire life history of each member of the class, I shall give it only in a concise way to the year 1930. Everett Archer completed his education at Union and became a banker. Later he accepted a lucrative position in New York City, where he rapidly rose and became a widely known mag- nate. Much of his life there has been spent defending himself against charges of graft. Haynes Brinkley succeeded well in his calling, being devoted and untiring in his work. The above date finds him yet an energetic missionary in Korea. As many had predicted, Harry Carter chose farming as his profession, and by diligent toil lias amassed quite a fortune. He has, also, held several Crockett County offices with dis- tinction. F. J. Chastain began his first missionary work in Mexico, assisting his tireless father. He has accomplished great good there. In 1927 he was called to the pastorate of the First Bap- tist Church in Mexico City. Miss Esta Davis, after graduating here, taught school for sy several years, but falling in love with the Greek Professor in Union University, she decided to quit that tiresome work and marry. The wedding was pompously held December 28, 1919. The early life of Mr. Dement was somewhat impeded to rapid success by the silver darts of Cupid. But at last stricken with love, he yields to the shepherdess of the " hill. " After freeing himself from this trifling- yet unavoidable situation, he becomes a corpulent citizen and quack pharmacist at Dyer Station. .1. Edgar Fergason remained firm in his determination to be a lawyer. He began his early career as practitioner in Pitts- burg, where he enjoyed immediate success and developed into an orator and politician of no mean ability; which fact may be attested by the overwhelming Democratic majority that placed him in Congress in the fall of 192S. The summary of the life of J. Paul Fowler to the year 1930 is as follows: International and beloved president of the Ana- nias Club, midnight owl and reckless ehauft ' eur. daring filibuster and freebooter. Later he became a hero, surpassed in glory imly by the undying exploit of Leonidas. Mr. W. T. Freeman, after distinguishing himself in athletics at Union, accepted a position as physical director in the V. M. C. A. at Dyersburg, Tennessee. But he soon resigned and be- came a lecturer and an organizer of this branch of religious work. Boone Hayes, well known in his college days as the " king of the rounders, " redeemed himself in the battles of life. After graduating at Union, he entered the Naval Academy at Annap- olis and was rapidly promoted: and in 1923 he was made Lieutenant General of the Philippines. Soon after his gradua- tion at Union he married a charming young lady of Dyer, Tennessee. The life of Mr. James has been a surprise to even his closest friends, He did not pursue ministerial work, but accepted a position in one of our Eastern universities as a science teacher, lie lias made an extended study of ancient science and has pub- lished a widely known book on that subject. Gladstone Koffman, as we all knew him. intended his life vocation to be the law. But he soon grew weary of this pro- fession, and when asked to accept the Chair of Greek in Union University readily consented to do so. Mr. Koffman has made good in this line of work. He married in December of 1919. The fame of Mr. E. H. Marriner is universally known. After graduating at Union he accepted the editorship of one of our Western religious papers, which he soon relinquished for liter- ary pursuits. On the crags of San Bemardina may be heard the roll of his mighty prose — equaled only by the surging bil- lows of the boundless deep — ushering in the Golden Age of American Literature. J. B. MeCrory never completed his education at Union, al- though it was his determined desire. He followed preaching for several years, but finally decided teaching was better for his life work. He is at present the principal of a high school in Dayton, Ohio. Our esteemed class president. Mr. C. C. Morris, has had a varied career. He became a noted preacher in this vicinity: but soon abandoned this to become an evangelist. He met with great success in this line of work; but soon relinquished it, to bear tin ' Gospel to the heathen world in the wilds of the Kongo and adjacent territory. ■1. L. McAliley thoroughly mastered the curriculum of Union before he left its portals. He later took a course in the Sem- inary at Louisville, and soon after accepted a professorship in Union University. Later he was promoted ; and the above date finds him at the head of the Theological department. Algernon Rueker has reaped quite a fortune in the lumber business at Dyersburg, He has given much of his leisure to 60 various sports — especially is this true of tennis, [n 1!)18 he won the tennis championship of the Smith, his tantalizing serve being- too miraculous for the skill of his opponents. William A. Shoaf abandoned his early contemplation of being a lawyer for a more ideal vocation — the farm. His scientific and diversified methods of farming has led to vast improve- ments in agricultural advancements m his vicinity h affording excellent examples of the art. W. L. Turk, except for a few years in professional baseball, has followed the grocery business. In 11)2!) he purchased a large wholesale house in Cairo. Illinois, which be has enlarged and vastly improved. Greenville is proud of her millionaire. Mr. Wickliffe, after completing his literary course at Onion, entered into the coal and tobacco business, in which he amassed a fortune. He has contributed a large sum of money to Union University and has aided in improving the conditions of his town. Edward Young did not enter into the profession that he in- tended. It was his purpose to lie an electrical engineer; hut he forsook this to become a mail clerk. He has prospered in this profession and now holds a very lucrative position in tin- Posl office Department at Washington. David Anthony, on leaving Lnion, took a commercial course at I ' oughkeepsie. New York, and has since been in the hard- ware business. Later he accepted the managership of the hard- ware department of Sears, Roebuck Co. Thus ends the prophecy. But veiled in the years succeeding 1930 are facts that could not be wisely told. It is not fitting that each member should know his future life after that date, for what would become of him. Some might try to emulate Macbeth; others pine away their usefulness . But the future seems exceedingly bright and happy. Our dear school pros- pers. Union rises from her smoldering ruins into a magnificent and edifying structure, thrice better than before. The future reveals that her lamented misfortune was clearly a blessing in disguise. CLASS PROPHET. 61 iErraltmau (Elass iitstnrij. Sing the fame, Goddess, of the Freshmen, the offspring- of I ' nion. The ever-increasing fame which has caused myriads of eyes To look upon the youths and has set forth Many valiant deeds of brave heroes While they themselves were a prey to hard problems And a feast to pedagogues; but Destiny would have it so. m Y child, whether I shall do a thing worth while, if from the first I shall tell the affairs of this noted class. I am not sufficiently assured; nor, if I were, would I dare to say it ; because the fame of these persons is so well known. All the while new events are constantly taking place that make it a task most difficult to tell of the wonderful achievements of this sturdy tribe. Many long toilsome years having been spent in preparation, it was come to the door of Union University by these youths. A council having been held, it was decided that they should be permitted to settle within the boundaries of Freshmen Work. Now Freshmen Work is altogether divided into three parts, one of which, being bounded on the west by supper and on the east by midnight, the Study-Hours inhabit ; the second, across I he peaceful river Somnium. the Class Rooms inhabit, being bounded on the east by the rising sun and on the west by the big brass hell ; the third, the Recreations inhabit, of which there are no boundaries. Many times have these youths been made to cry out in silence as their teachers would probe with hard questions : " How long will you abuse our patience? To what extent will your tedious course of instruction vaunt itself? O Times! Customs ! The teachers know these things, the President sees them ; yet we suffer. But through all these hardships our heroes have passed and have grown stronger day by day. In the early autumn of the fifteenth year after the founding of Powell Chapel. Dr. Kimbrough being President, it was de- cided to organize this studious tribe. A coiltio having assem- bled, C. Morrisus Louisianus was elected consul, Missus Esta Davisio Lexingtona being his colleague, E. Archerus Hallsus was chosen scribe, A. Shoafus Covingtonus was appointed chief of the prophecies. C. Jamesio Humboldtus was assigned the duty of poet, and L. Turkio Kentuckio chief of the mighty men of valor. The organization having been completed, the council was dismissed, all having agreed to uphold the standard that had been set by the many illustrious men who have had the distinguished honor of being Freshmen, and have passed on to higher things. About the middle of the fifth month. Dr. Kimbrough being President, it was come by the sturdy tribe to the foot of the mountain Examinationes. Through scouts it was found that the enemy had already occupied the hill, and all things seemed to be against these brave men. The day was cold and dreary; the clouds hung low and darkening, so that one could hardly see his way. Though these men were brave and resolute, yet they were heard to cry out many times in deep anxiety: " 0 62 ye immortal deities! Where in the world are we . ' In whai city do we live? What government have we? " But the battle was on, and when the general shouted tin ' war-cry, " Let us die and rush into arms. " all took great cour- age and, with hard fighting, the enemy was overcome, and the victorious tribe marched on over the mountain into the busy plains of Secundus Semester with the determination to conquer every foe. The deeds, my child, of this great class have been many, and " As long as the rivers shall flow into the sea, as long as the shadows shall move round tin- curved mountains, as long as the heavens shall feed the stars, so long their honor, name and praise shall live. " Thus she spoke and was gone to high Olympus, the home of aegis-bearing Zeus among the other gods. CLASS HISTORIAN " . 63 JuTiilmtau Glass {farm. The night is disappearing fast, The morning light is breaking in the East; The golden day will dawn at last. And flood the world with happiness and peace. We wake to vigilance and work, For we are in the morning of our course. ur varied tasks we never shirk; This resolution always we enforce. The morning into perfect day Is rip ' ning and the evening comes on slow; The sun will pass along his way And on the ocean ' s blue his head lay low. Then we will tell our loved ones true Of our adventures in the Freshman class; And how the Sophs the Freshmen new To bluff did try. but oh you conquered mass! And how the " sophoi moroi, " so It is reported, paint a bucket-full Did order, but the train ran slow — That paint the monster engine hard did pull. The paint, it never did arrive. With which to paint the Freshmen ' s caps so g The Sophomores thus did contrive — We wondered why the paint was never seen. And soon the morn of our pursuits Will pass into the eve of senior-hood; Then graver tasks to execute Will fall the lot of all who wear the " hood. " Then we will pass into the world To cheer and bless the paths of those we meet ; And we will wed a pretty girl And have a little cottage nice and neat. And when the family gathers round The fire-side, when the evening ' s work is through, The finest place that can be found. Where Home and Heaven seem to meet with you, And how tlie limber Freshmen took Such heart-felt pity on the Seniors old; And victory with joy forsook To let them win in basket-ball so bold. And we back over our short life Can look, and see that we are better fit The battles in the life ' s great strife To flight, since we in Union once did sit. Ye Stars, that light the paths of man, Come join me in my song of praise, " and tell The world that since the world began, " No class was able this one to excel. CLASS POET.

The team of that season, ably coached by Mr. A. K. Tigrett, ' 06, was a good one. and a winning one, and it was our hopes that the team of each suc- ceeding year would be still better. But our hopes were changed into despair the next fall when but two regular men of the team matriculated in college, and there was no coach for the team. The captain-elect for the season, too, did not return, and there was no effort made to get out a team. The manager had made dates for some games, though, seeing the condition of affairs, he had not completed his schedule. The dates ar- ranged had to be canceled, as there were no candidates out for the team, and the Athletic Association had not arranged for a coach, even if ' candidates could be induced to come out. When school opened in September, 1911, it was a question with the students whether they would attempt to start a team from the bottom and build up, or would again have no team at all. To their credit, they decided to put out a team and began practice under the coaching of Mr. Perry Callahan, who generously gave his time without asking any remuneration. After two weeks ' work, Mr. Callahan found that his duties at the bank, where he was employed, had become so great that he could no longer spare the necessary time in the afternoon to coach the team. The candidates continued to go out period- ically for a short time without any coach, and then stopped going out entirely. Boone, of the 1909 team, entered school the first of October for his senior work, and immediately began an attempt to re- organize the team. Most of the candidates again came out. though it was hardly hoped by anyone to get out a winning team. There were not enough men out for a second team, and scrimmage could be had on only three or four afternoons. C. S. Roberts was elected manager at tin 1 beginning of the season, and. considering the time of his election, arranged a splendid sche dule for the season. In the early part of October suits were ordered, but were somehow shipped to the wrong address and never arrived. The team was thus forced to play in just such suits as the men could secure, and there were no suits at all for a second team. We kept thinking that the suits ordered would arrive, and consequently did not take steps to get them elsewhere. With only two weeks ' practice, we opened the season with the strong team from McFerrin School on the 21st of October in -Jackson. In this game, though, our men played well for first-year men, we were beaten by the score of 28 — 0, our op- ponents excelling us in all points of the game except punting. We went to Memphis on the 28th of October to play the C. B. C. team there. This game by all means should have been ours. We gained much more ground on straight football than they. At the close of the first half neither team had scored, and we were confident of rushing the ball over the goal line in the second half. But the C. B. C. boys began this half with a series of forward passes, which, as we had had no second team to practice against in this style of play, we were unable to stop; and when the game closed we had again been humiliated by the same score as in the McFerrin game. However, on the following Saturday we were at Clarksville, prepared to face the S. P. U. warriors on their rough, gravelly gridiron. Here we played Our best game of the season, holding our heavy opponents time and again when they were on our three-yard line. Though the work of every member of the team 137 was far above that in either of the preceding games, special mention should lie made of the punting and tackling of Ander- son and the great defensive playing- of Freeman. Battered and bruised on the rough, rocky field we came off beaten 22 — 0. The following Monday we placed Bethel College on their field. In the first few minutes of play Anderson sent a long spiral over left end, and Puryear was on it by the time it struck the ground. With a clear field ahead of him he raced iivcr the goal line for our first and only touchdown of the season. But this was not to decide the contest. Our men were sore and bruised from the game on Saturday, and we were again defeated, 29 — 6. There were no other games scheduled until Thanksgiving nor could Manager Roberts secure any. and. as the Athletic Asso- ciation was runnm.. hea iK in debt, it wis decided to cam - 1 this game and close the season. For the season of 1912 our prospects are far better than they were at the beginning of the 1911 season. John Anderson has been elected captain, and will do his best, to lead a successful team. S. M. Herron has been elected manager, and is now booking dates for games. Though the past season was a failure as far as victory goes, those of us who take a pride in true college athletics had rather graduate in a year when we had a team, though not a winning one. than when we had no team at all. The season of 1911 was only preliminary work for that of 1912. and to the team of this fall, we who go out from our Alma Mater in June say: " Our hearts, our hopes, our fears. Are all with thee, are all with thee. " JO S. GEST, Manager H. L. FREV, 139 BASKE5BALL Professor A. W. Prince ,lo S. Gest II. L. Prey . Players. PlJRYEAR, E. J. RoBEKTS, . K. Prey Puryear, W. E.

Union 42 ■ (lilt of thirteen games played, we won six and lust seven. That we did nut win a majority of the games played was not because our team this year was weaker than that of Union ' -14 former years, but because we played stronger teams than those with which Union ' s team bad heretofore battle. 1. l m " n 1S Viewed from the number of students who took part in basket- Union 13 ball, and this is how the success or failure of a season should be determined, tin- season was the best success which any Union team has ever had. This was partly because of the natural Union 27 favor which many students have for this wholesome game, and partly because of the excellent arrangements at the local Y. M. Umon ' 44 C.

Thus far in the season, we have won only one game, but it must be remembered that it was possible to get but six days ' practice before we met our first defeat, and as a result a great many errors have been made. Considering the short time in which we have had to practice and in which had a coach, these errors have been excusable. We hope to win the remaining games on our schedule, and to obtain for the members of the team valuable experience for next year. Schedule.

The letters of each name are in their proper order to spell the name, however they may appear in one or more words.) Senator Bilbo one night had a vision. The next morning, he could not remember any of it. except that he saw a large stick and a huge conch shell, borne upon the waves of the madly dashing sea. The next day. he was standing in the street-car terminus, when he saw a woman wearing a hat adorned with feathers of owl. kestrel, and crow. Presently a man, whose complexion in- dicated that he was a Moor, elbowed his way through the erowa to a lunch stand and bought a sandwich which he quickly con- sumed. Lingering there for a while, he walked away and the Senator saw him no more. While Mr. Bilbo was still walking to and fro, Bert, seemingly unexpected, walked up and said, " Father, I wish to take you to the Hotel Caravansan for dinner today. " " I gladly accept your offer, good son, ' ' said the father. Dinner was not quite ready when they reached the Hotel, so they sat down and began talking. " Father, " said Bert, " I have been wishing to-day that you would get me a ring like sister Martha ' s.

Meandering gracefully across the room to the northeast corner, he places his time-worn and weather-beaten Stetson upon the crooked end of his one inseparable companion, which he stands end- wise against the wall. Stroking a little bunch of lilacs grow- ing just beneath his nose, he gazes out the window toward the distant east, and is lost in reverie. Xow, here 1 am, leading the life of a drudge, and, I might add, a convict — chained to a creed established by untold ages of precedent, and compelled from one day ' s end to another ' s, to beat into the heads of these so-called " wise fools ' ' declen- sions, conjugations and comparisons. Wise fools indeed, bah! fie upon that word, — it is a mockery. In my own land. I was i gentleman — a man of means, influence and power. Vast estates had I at my control, and no one to say me nay. and now to think that I have come to this. Oh. cruel fate! Fain would 1 come back to thee, oh. Kentucky, but I cannot. Tis not that I love thee less, but that I love Latin more. Thy blue grass valleys and verdant hills right oft have beckoned me to return to thee. oh. land hallowed by my fathers. And did I not so love the sacred epigrams of this dead language, toward thee would I turn most willing feet. Yes, I would come back to thee, to seek again thy secret caves, richly adorned with treas- ures more precious than rubies. I would roam again beside thy gurgling brooks, which Mow on through endless ages to the valleys of tomorrow. There would I take mine ease, and lead a life, free and unsullied, marked only by epochs of a thousand years, and in the end would I leave behind, a legacy richer than the stained triumphs of ten thousand Caesars. Ah, then might I truly say. I have built a monument more lasting than brass, and more glorious than the regal structure of the pyra- mids.

Well, well! what ' s so funny? Didn ' t you ever see any one fall, before . ' Dick — No, sir; but I ' ve seen them fall behind. R. L. P. — Aw, Roy, yon are always trying to say something bright. Stand up there and read. I ' ll tell you boys, there ' s got to he something done about this class — it ' s more than I am able to stand, and I don ' t see how most of you are going to pass.

How do you expect me to teach anything in this class, when you come butting in here thirty minutes late, taking our time and attention? Jo — But, professor R. Ij. P. — Aw. shut up. Jo: you ' ll be getting off something here directly as bright as Charlie Roberts ' head. Sit down, and look on. I ' ll tell you. hoys, this is the finest language in the world. Jo (aside to Robert Sanford) — Well, I guess I ain ' t stung! R. L. P. (glaring savagely at them) — Here! none of those side remarks — they don ' t amount to a thing in the world, — turn around! It ' s hard enough to get things in the front of your head, much less the back. Medling! stand up and read. Deacon — Haven ' t read it, professor. R. L.

You needn ' t think that you can quietly pull the wool over my eyes and ride silently by on these little tender- footed quadrupeds. The class last year read 200 lines a day, and never saw a jack. Enter Prof. Johnson. Johnson— Prof., I ' d like to get my Math class out of here, if you are through with it. R. L. P. — Yes, sir; er, aw, that is. — aw, has the bell rung? Well, that ' ll do. (He falls in his chair exhausted, at the exit of Latin II.) ACT II. SCENE I. Enter R. L. P. (running his fingers through his hair, and storming savagely, then speaking in his characteristic undertone) : That man Johnson is always keeping his class over time and taking off from ten to twenty minutes from my lesson. That Soph. Latin is a Jonah anyway, and it just about takes the whole period to get them quiet. It ' s a low down Irish trick, to keep any class after the bell rings, — why, I ' m always glad enough to get rid of one. If I kick, I get kicked, and if I don ' t, this class is going to the bad. But its six of one and half a dozen of the other, so what ' s the use . ' (Whereupon he slaps most viciously at a tiy which has so far forgotten itself as to alight among his whiskers.) Enter Latin II. 163 R. L. P. (sarcastically) — Yes. just about as I thought — you did finally get here — oh. I knew you would, if I ' d just give you time. If some of you had nothing to do for a month before time, you would come to this elass late. It ' s a low down habit. nothing else. — well you may as well break it, or else I ' m going to break you on exam. File — Professor, the second hell hasn ' t run- yet. R. L. P.— Second bell, second hell! Well, I should say not, and it may never line. Why, we ought to be half through with this lesson by the tine- Trues gets to Unit bell. Do you know, boys, it is a most remarkable thing how slow some people can be. You always want some excuse to be bite! Has any- body here seen Tom Powlkes? Where is Charlie Roberts? He wasn ' t at his class yesterday, and still he expects me to pass him. I guess he ' s busy with that Cardinal and Cream, writing out a long string id ' big words, trying to avoid the monotony that would otherwise ensue, and they don ' t amount lo a hill of beans. Wait a minute, yes — — nil. bu. well, here he comes. — he ' s going to make us a visit today — well, we are al- ways at home to our friends. Enter Roberts. R. L. P. — Roberts, where ' s your book? Roberts — Can ' t get one. R. L. I ' . — Now, Roberts, there were a full dozen in this class last year, and you needn ' t come up here and tell me you can ' t get a book. Sanford. I appoint you to see that he gets a book. Sanford — Didn ' t you once say that every tub should stand on its own bottom . ' R, L. P.— Aw, Sanford, hush up. Miss Willie B., get over there in your own chair. Willie B. — But, Professor, that hasn ' t any arm on it, and I can ' t R. L. P.— Can ' t help that; when I give you girls seats, I want you to keep them. Miss Lessie, stop that giggling and open your book. .lo. where does the lesson begin? Jo Gest — Not knowing exactly, I really couldn ' t say. But I will endeavor to find it — shoul this small booklet. (When R. L. P. stares dag idly). R. L. P.— Here ! here it is. I your mind on this Latin. You 3rs at him within the confines of turns pages rap- •11 you b look ; you have to put ut for these deli- cate little puns . Plautus makes a play on nearly every word. Tom Fowlkes — Professor, those parasites must have been some sort of politicians, they were always scheming for some- thing to eat. I ' ll bet they could form a machine here in Ten- nessee, that could shovel snow on the plans of all five of these would-be governors. R. L. P. — Aw. Tom, now don ' t get off the lesson: you boys are always thinking of something to take up time. But since you have reminded me of it, — it ' s a shame the way polities go in this state. That election two years ago was a disgrace. I made a speech then at the Bob Taylor Club, and it was a good one too — at least every one said it was — of course I don ' t know. Let me tell you boys. Tennessee made the same mistake that Kentucky did. Why. Taylor ought to have been elected by fifty thousand majority. Wait a minute. Here comes Mr. Med ling. Enter Medling. Medling! where have you been ' Medling — Didn ' t hear the bell, and my watch had run down. R, L. P. — I notice you always hear the dinner bell.

And here with this most propitious date, our little chron : cU of campus events ends. In writing down these, the actual hap- penings in and around our college walls, the purpose has been to give in plain style a diary, a kind of insight into the work- a-day life of our student body. In many eases we can say with the famous Englishman, " Oh! How full of thorns is this work- a-day world, " while at other times we can look up into the twinkling heavens with the confident feeling that everyone should hitch his wagon to a star. Ere this, however, shall have seen the light upon the bread white pages of " Lest We Forget, " many things of grave im- portance shall have come to pass. For this reason we regret to halt in our recording work, but desire to press on and give to the world the deeds we have done in full. Much remains to be done, while about this much only conjectures can be formed. If the days of prophecy were not past, we might, with bold, good luck, tell how on such and such a date Union ' s crack nine won a fast game over worthy foes, or, less lucky, fell a victim to some " ringers league. " Nest in date would come the ac- counts of how the silver-tongued young orators strove for fame upon an honored rostrum ; the name of the medal winner being declared the Demosthenes. A space of a few weeks would then follow, during which the silent charms of nature, Exams., and the tennis courts would occupy the students ' time. 169 As an especially bold, optimistic soothe-sayer, we might now tell in glowing headlines of liow our red-headed " hope " in a masterly way. captured the high prized trophy of the State Oratorical Association. Hut these glad prophecies are stilled, for the Seniors in sober style to render their day of thanksgiving to their Alma Mater. A few days now elapse for the gathering of friends and the indulgence of merited pleasure. Then over an assembly that has just heard the last strains of a Commencement Day song, and mingled with the echoes of a .Senior ' s farewell, comes the benediction. To some it represents the climax of their youthful desires, while to others, as they drop a tear upon their flowing robes, it means an introduction into the world beyond the walls and the loss of friends " dearer than a brother.
