President No institution advances beyond the progress of its chief executive. Dr. Watters assumed his present duties as president back in 1918 and since that time Union has been making steady progress to the fore- ground along with other leading schools of the South. He is widely known as a minister, educator, vocational counselor, pub ic speaker and natural leader. His splendid ability and alert judgment have raised the academic standards, bettered athletic conditions, raised the endow- ment and increased the enrollment. More lasting than all his many planned achievements has been his understanding and constructive sympathy in all student problems. c n H-»mmm t i »g ? A F?j™ fl£: ffl y« «g MF «flBtw. ' Vi Arthur Warren Prince, A.M. Dean Since Professor Prince came to Union as a member of the faculty in 1908 and as dean in 1918 he has won the admiration and friendship of all who have known him. The many problems that confront one in his position have been solved with skill and tact that endears him to the whole student body. One always finds him the cheerful counselor yet strict in his discharge of duty. As head of the Chemistry Department he has made an enviable record and developed many splendid science students. He is a member of the American Chemical Society and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and is a Captain in the Chemical Warfare Reserves of the United States Armv. ■ cy£ G. M.

Faithful and loyal may we ever be. May our master ' s watchcare O ' er us one and all extend, Till again in union Heart and voice we blend. Dear Alma Mater, hear thy offspring ' s plighted vow! Firmer and truer may we be than now. Memory fondly lingers, Calling back departed days; Every task grows lighter As we sing thy praise. Loved Alma Mater, o ' er us shed scholastic light, E ' en as we wander from thy halls tonight; And though years divide us, And in distant lands we roam, Oft in dreams we ' ll gather ' Round our " Home, Sweet Home.

For A Senior A campus lying quietly in the set tint; sun. And over it a breath of something siveet — A happiness that it had given you. Pulled at your heart and stayed your eager feet. You lingered just a moment more — then turned, And smiling ivent upon your way. This part of life ivas finished noiv, And you must face another day. Four years — the best of life You ' d spent in learning hoiu to learn. Four years that helped to make a man, And here at last you ' d reached the turn. Into the world for bigger things, The icay now led, and days behind Were but a guide to help you on, To newer things that you would find. Life was that icay. It set you down In paths you found you loved to tread. Then snatched you out into the world, And though you smiled, you felt a dread. Of something greater than you kneic — tugged and pulled upon your heart. But lo — the way stretched new for you, And there icas nothing but to start. So — eagerly you took the step, And forivard icent to greet the days, That opened up for you a life Not like the old in many ways. You were a man and so you took The gain and loss without a sigh, But often in this newer life, You thought with joy of days gone by. And pictured in your heart the place, Where youth had lived. A little sad, You smiled and whispered to yourself, " What fun and happiness ive had.

Turnace Frank Edenton Grace Sleleti Crystal Hefley Sara M. Black — «A | e 3Y£ YV. W. Dunn Under the capable leadership and through the untiring efforts of Union ' s athletic director, W. W. Dunn, athletics have reached a high standard and are now being conducted in a well organized and sys- tematic way. The students, the faculty, and the officials of the school have de- veloped a spirit of teamwork and co-operation that has heretofore not been attained, thus making the athletics of the college popular in this section of the state. The citizens of Jackson are now awakening to the fact that the athletics of the institution are being conducted on a high and standardized plane, the result being that there is a steady develop- ment of school spirit and a great deal more support being received from the people in the adjoining territory. The work of forming a successful association has been very trying and time after time success has seemed uncertain. However, during the past year, at the request of Prof. Dunn, Dr. Watters appointed an Athletic Council to help share the responsibility and to shape the pol- icies of Union ' s athletics. The council is composed of W. W. Dunn, ex-officio chairman, Coach Stewart, Coach Hollingswcrth, Bud Pritchett, Tansil Palmer, Dean Prince and Dr. Davis. The council immediately formed a program of general expansion for the next year. In these plans are included arrangements for seating and lighting facilities on the field, the formation of a schedule that calls for five or six games on the home gridiron and arrangements for a splen- did season in every respect. Prospects for the U nion ' s athletic achievements during the coming season are indeed promising. yggsg? Roy Stewart For four years Coach Roy Stewart has led the athletic aspirants of Union Univer- sity in a most efficient and inspiring way, during which time he has displayed a high- class, well-rounded type of sportsmanship both on the gridiron, on the court and in his associations with the students and the officials of the institution. Coach Stewart is a product of Union, having established remarkable records in school here both as an athlete and as a well-rounded man. Coach Hollingsworth Coach Beck W ' ■ " y " 3W Captain Welch R. J. Welch, 158 pounds (Country). Country played half back, serving the team as captain and frequently skirting opposing ends for long gains. Until he came to Union he had never played in a football game and had seen a ball only once. Be- fore he finished his career as an athlete on the Bulldog squad he had gained the honor of S. I. A. A. mention in the conference ranking of players. He was little but loud and the boys hate to lose him. He is the only man lost by graduation. James Logan, Captain 1031 " Rocky " Palmer, Business Manager ound Bothers left end for 30 yards. Roy Mabry, (Beefy), 210 Mabry played regular tackle and was one of Stewart ' s most reliable athletes. He also has two more years of service on Union squads. Robert Thompson. (Bob), 155 Playing quarterback and barking the sig- nals in a high class way, we find Bob play- ing steady games and fighting hard for the school, team, and student body. He will be back next year. Wade Carter, (Pete), 180 This was Pete ' s second year of football and his first on the Varsity squad. Within his two remaining years on the squads Carter will make a name for himself on the Bulldog eleven. Bud Pritchett, (Bud), 180 Bud was injured in a critical time of the 1930 season and the loss was a great one to the Union squad. Bud has one more year on the Canine eleven and will be one of the most dependable players on the 1931 team. jiifc - ' 9W , si ' Malcolm Lauderdale, (Pugh), 210 Pugh played end and fullback on the of- fense for the Unionites. He was a letterman and will be back for the season of ' 31. Jim L. Harris, (Jim), 165 Harris played regular guard position and did so in a very capable manner. He has another year on the squad and much is ex- pected from him in the coming season. Durwood Buford, (Bu), 170 Durwood played guard and although a letterman did not hold down a regular posi- tion. He is a dependable man and will be a valued asset on next year ' s squad. Charles Lindsey, (Webb), 156 This was Webb ' s first year on the Bull- dog squad, however he proved himself to be a worthy and reliable substitute. He came from Tennessee Wesleyan where he played center and end. He will be back next year, giving somebody a fight for the first string center position. -cQM College failed to stop this one Malcolm Evans, (Mac), 175 Evans was placed at one of the end posi- tions when Pritchett was forced out by in- juries and, in spite of this being his first year on the varsity eleven, made a very commend- able account of himself in the 1930 season. He will be rarin ' to go next fall. Thomas House, (Fat), 263 House was the biggest threat in the Union line, giving opposing elevens plenty to think about. House also is a sophomore and will have two more years of college football. Arthur Thompson, (Tarzan), 145 Another backfield letterman that made quite a reputation in ball toting for the Bull- dogs in the 1930 season was Halfback Thomp- son. He was the first to score for the Canines in the past season. Ralph Mathis, (Curly), 165 With Curly at halfback opponents could always look out for triple threat football tac- tics. He was a good man and will be on the 1931 squad. He was a substitute that de- veloped into a regular within the course of one season. 62 fa ' ' W Lloyd Woods, (City), 190 Woods played tackle and defensive guard and did so in a very worthy manner. City will be back next year. Joe Verser, (Vicious), 165 Alternating with Buford, Verser proved himself a worthy lineman and always gave opponents plenty of fight even in defeat. This is his first year on the Bulldog squad and he should develop into a mighty good man iiT the next two years. Geron Brown, (Farmer), 150 Farmer played in practically every back- field position. When a fast substitute was needed, Stewart sent Farmer in to meet the emergency. We are locking for great things from Farmer on future elevens. T. L. Caver, (T), 170 Union opponents had a hard time trying to circle Union ' s ends for Caver and Pritchett h?ld these positions down in a unique manner. Caver has two more years on the Bulldog squad and will develop into one of Coach Stewart ' s stars. SMMMMMMM r Back in the sultry days of September the members of Union ' s 1930 varsity squad gathered for the long training siege that faced them before the opening game of the 1930 pigskin season. Pre-season prospects were good, with many heavy linesmen on hand and some fast ball toters re- porting for backfield work. The Bulldogs settled down to daily prac- tice sessions, frequently meeting Coach Hollingswcrth ' s cocky frosh squad. Then the days of real games came on and the Canines met Bethel College in the season ' s opener, fighting the Kentucky lads to a O and O outcome. The Bulldogs failed to score when they had their opportuni- ties. After a week ' s preparation for Ole Miss the Union boys journeyed to Oxford and there received a severe 64 to O defeat at the hands of the Mississippi eleven. Ole Miss was just too strong for the Canines. Another unsuccessful campaign was made when the Dogs received a bitter licking at the hands of Birmingham-Southern to the tune of 51 to O. Union ' s heavy line failed to function properly and her backfield stars were soon overcome from the lack of substitutions. Things brightened up a little for the Jackson footballers when the Bulldogs held Louisiana Normal in a close game, emerging on the little end of a 14 to 7 score. Facing one of their hardest games of the season the Canines went through long practice drills in preparation for the Millsap eleven, but were overcome with a 41 to 7 score on the foreign field. Old foes were next in line and the Bulldogs traveled to Mobile, determined to win, but the Springhill squad was too much for the small Union eleven and handed the Jackson boys a 35 to o drubbing. Before a large and enthusiastic crowd the Bulldogs trounced the representatives of Louisiana College in the mud by a count of 14 to 7 in a well played game on the Union field. Captain Welch played his last game before home town fans and gave a very commendable account of himself. Feeling better after their win over the Louisiana squad, the Union- ises battled Mississippi Teachers in a hard-fought game to a o to o tie. Time after time the Union boys threatened seriously but the punch necessary to score was lacking. K Varsity Resume in Union was represented during the past season by a mediocre team as was evident in the final percentage rating of games won and lost, the Bulldog aggregation having emerged victorious in six contests and on the little end of the count of five. Their schedule was a hard one, in fact one of the hardest ever faced by a Union quintette and the showing made throughout the sea- son was commendable. Coach Stewart de- serves much credit for having developed a team that represented the school so well last season. Pritchett was the outstanding star throughout the season and high point man of the Bulldog five with a total of 145 points, a figure that rates well in the S. I. A. A. conference for individual players. Payne and Pritchett started most of the games at the forward positions, Lauderdale at center and Logan and Caver at guards. Reliable substitutes on the Union squad were Harris, Welch, Mathis, and Evans, all of whom saw much service in the games and made good showings while on the floor. The squad met their hardest defeat at Southwestern when they were practically knocked out of chance at tour- nament play, however they kept in the best of condition in hopes that they might re- ceive an invitation to the big affair from the hosts, Millsaps or Mississippi College. 66 S ■j M g MMg MMMMM P «MMMMM «3» v», " f ' " M Only one player is being lost by grad- uation and with the addition of the Fresh material Union should be represented by another good quintette next season.

Coach Ho lingsworth had some good material on hand at the opening of the fall season and soon had his charges in condition for the hard schedule facing the Union beginners. The season was opened in a very unfavorable manner, however, with the Pups going down in defeat at the hands of the Sewanee Frosh in their battle above the clouds by the foggy r.core of 32 to 7. The game was played on foreign territory and from the appearance of the score the Frosh were affected very much by the change of environment. The first defeat did not spell much as to the success of Union ' s Freshman squad and on their home ground they handed the Murray State Freshmen a 14 to 6 licking. The squad at this time had come out of the haze and was rarin ' to go. Realizing that they were to face a c.trong two year college aggregation, the Bull Pups crossed the Mississippi and lost a hard-fought game to the Caruthersville eleven. The frosh put up a terrible scrap and the 18 to 7 score is hardly representative of the showing made by Coach Hollingsworth ' s charges. It was a moral victory for the Unionites. The student body, most of Jackson and part of Memphis turned out to see the Freshmen hand the Southwestern Bobcats a very surprising 46 to 6 defeat on the local field. The entire frosh team was right and when the final whistle had sounded the remains of the Southwestern Bobcats had been dragged from one end of the ico-yard field to the other by those terrible Bull Pups. It was a bitter dose for the Memphians to swallow. Thanksgiving rolled around and every member of the squad must have had that good old Turkey spirit for they barely eked out a 6 to 2 win over the Tupelo Military Institute. Neither team was in the best of condition and none of the high class tactics were displayed by the Unionites that they had used in downing the Southwestern Bobcats. )$£h- " About twenty Freshmen reported at first call for the 1930-31 Frosh squad and only nine of that twenty stuck until the close of the season. But those nine players could play circus basket- ball and seldom did they come out of a contest on the little end of the score. When the season ' s curtain went down the Pups were doing their stuff on the cage floor and were making it plenty hot for opposing quintettes. Stripling deserves much credit for the team ' s success as he was largely responsible for the enormous score piled up by the Pups during the past season. He was captain of the squad and handled the team in a most convincing and successful manner. Stafford was a high class bas- keteer, following Stripling in the goal tossing race and always playing an excellent floor game. He was one of Coach Hollingsworth ' s most reliable players. Adkins was the outstanding guard, while Atherton and Allman gave good accounts of themselves in all the Frosh contests. Taylor got started in grand style after the season was about half over, playing the role of a star in many of the late season games. Substitutes, upon whom Coach could depend, were Lewis, Titsworth, Rucker, and Hickman. These substitutes saw much service in the games and played like regulars when on the cage floor. To Coach Hollingsworth goes the credit for developing such a successful Freshman quintette, bcth from the standpoint of games won and the manner in which the Pups conducted themselves both on and off the court. The following i:. a record of the Pup ' s 1930-31 season: Union 43; Freed-Hardeman 11 Union 32; Maury City Independents 22 Union 31 ; Bemis Employed Five 34.

Although they started the season off in a very discouraging manner, they brought it to a close in a fast and successful way. As a whole it was one of Union ' s most successful, sextettes, the girls winning six out of eight games and piling up 220 points to their opponents ' 153. Both of the defeats were dealt by the strong Freed- Hardeman sextette of Henderson. In their first game those Union girls looked helpless before the Freed-Hardeman aggregation, going down in defeat by the decisive score of 45 to 12. However, the locals made a better showing in their return game in Jackson later in the season, losing by the small margin of 24 to 15. The first game was one-sided from start to finish with the Unionite:. furnishing little opposition, but the second contest was close and thrilling. Returning from their first game unsuccessful, the Unionites found the Jackson Y. M. C. A. somewhat easier to handle and came out with a couple of victories with scores of 32 to 13 and 27 to 14. These victories brightened things up around the girls ' camp and made them realize that they could actually win a basketball game. Bemis Y. was easy pickings for the locals and before the season had ended the University lassies had taken a couple of games from their " Y " opponents by the scores of 43 to 15 and 38 to 7. These games were uninteresting. Bethel did not prove to be very strong opponents, so the Union sextette generously gave the McKenzie girls a couple of defeats with scores of 19 to 9 and 34 to 27 attached to them. As was revealed by the games won at the last of the season the sextette improved rapidly and at the close of the year had developed into one of the fastest outfits in West Tennessee. Only one player is being lost by graduation, consequently it looks like Union might have an- other good girls ' sextette in 1932. Do- - e4 p° ' • 2 Union ' s Track Season Union ' s track season was a success. Although two of the three meets entered were lost by close scores, the Bulldogs established quite a record at the S. I. A. A. tourna- ment, ranking fifth among thirty-four S. I. A. A. schools. Those representing Union at the conference tournament were Logan, A. Thompson, Lauderdale and Woods, all of whom made a commendable showing at the big meet. The first track meet was lost to Southwestern by a 67 to 63 score, with the Mem- phis school having the edge en Union in the number of participants. It was a good scrap and the Bulldog tracksters kept the Lynx on the jump throughout the contest. The Bulldogs then ran into a hard bunch over in Arkansas when they met the Arkansas A. M. team, going down in defeat by an 85 to 46 count. The Arkansas team outnumbered the visitors and was also composed of more experienced men of the track. Southwestern and Mississippi college paid Union a visit when the three got to- gether in the big tri-college meet at Jackson. The L T nion lads edged their way to second place, after trailing throughout most of the contest. The final scores w T ere Mississippi College 53, Union 32 2-3 and Southwestern 32 1-3. The meet turned out to be a contest between the Bulldogs and the Lynx, with neither seriously threat- ening their Mississippi foes. Union made herself quite recognized at the S. I. A. A. meet, where her four rep- resentatives came through to place fifth among the thirty-four schools in the big con- ference. 9 ' Tennis When Athletic Director W. W. Dunn issued a call for those interested in tennis, a large number at once displayed unusual interest and prospects were good at the opening of the training season. As Coaches Stewart and Tate began working with the athletes, however, it was realized that Union, with few ex- ceptions, would be represented by a new and inexperienced set of racquet per- formers. Most of those reporting were from the freshman and sophomore classes. After being allowed four or five weeks of practice, a time was designated for the schools elimination tournament — one that would determine Union ' s 1930 tennis representatives. The affair created considerable interest and many entries were made, many of which were inexperienced men. The following came through in the tournament to establish for themselves places on the 1930 teams: Wootten, Billington, Thompson, Talbot, Caver and Booker. Wootten displayed exceptional racquet ability when he defeated Billington in the final game of the elimination tournament, thus earning the title " Champion of Union. " The Coaches spent much time in developing the material on hand and as a result Union was finally represented by a good set of teams, considering the inex- perience of many of the performers.

During all that time the fraternity problem has been considered by educators, from Dr. McCosh down through President Wilson and beyond, the most serious extra-aca- demic problem of our colleges. These years of its existence have shown it to be advantageous and disadvantageous, as would any other enterprise. Its problems are being studied, and, we may say with a great degree of surety, solved by men and women who are interested in this great movement in the colleges of the present day. Fraternities are teaching our youth the relationship between the conduct of one individual and another and of a group. Fraternity members are watched and their mistakes immediately reflect to the chapter with which they are affiliated. They develop a keen sense of responsibility and a keener discernment between the moral and the immoral. Ninety-six per cent of the fraternities encourage a moral life in their ritual or constitution, ninety-three per cent prohibit liquor on the premises, ninety per cent prohibit gambling in the houses, while ninety-eight per cent emphasize the virtues of honesty and integrity. While it would be ridiculous to say that the fraternities all live up to the high standards set out in these rituals, it is true that they are approaching them more and more under the increased competition for the best men and women, the demands of the universities, and the fine influence of the Inter- Fraternity Conference. An increasing number of sensible, high-minded alumni are trying through the national organizations to raise the standards of their fraternities. The evils of the fraternity have been greatly diminished and its virtues are taking the front rank. It cannot be denied that fraternity life gives much to the college student. Fraternities have meant something tremendously fine and vital and precious in the lives of many of the now almost a million boys and girls who have been their members. They have given a college home to a large percentage of these young people to which they are always free to return, and in which they are always sure of a welcome. Here, perhaps for the first time, many of them have learned the little niceties of life, those ' ' minor morals " that, scoff at them as we may, make the path so much pleasanter and more comfortable. Here the diffident and the shy have found the warm, friendly atmosphere under which their natures have flowered, in which they have gained confidence and developed talents and qualities that otherwise might never have been discovered. Here, those who have had unfortunate qualities or mannerisms have had their attention called to them as frankly as they would in their own homes, yet with the added effectiveness resulting from its not being in their own homes. Here they have found the close friendships that they can depend upon during their college years and through all their lives. Those who are members of the fraternities are never quite so provincial in their college loyalty, as they know of and come in contact with their brothers and sisters of other institutions ; they need never be lost in a strange town, for they will almost always find some brother or sister who will welcome them and help them. " Surely in that not-too-far distant day when America comes of age, all the splendid efforts that are being directed to the improvement of the situation will have resulted in some system by which the evils within the fraternities will have been eliminated, the privileges and advantages opened to all who need them — to all, at any rate, who have earned the right by achievement or by distinctions which are valid, " says a writer of today. ? ! ; i sasir waw Literary Societies and Clubs Vyj »- •K5Y S (y raw Thompson, Barfleld, Hamlin.

It is composed of seventeen members — sixteen chosen from the Senior and Junior classes and Mrs. Mable W. Hardin, sponsor. Membership is based on literary merit. The club meets every other Monday evening for dinner and the review of a well-known book, followed by criticisms and comments on the book for the evening. Each meeting is very in- teresting and instructive, and affords the members educational and social advantages. The contribution the club makes to the University annually is worthwhile, since each book reviewed is placed in the library. Many of Union ' s alumnae have been Hypatia members and still retain interest enough to re- turn to the banquet each year.

The thirteenth member is Dean Prince who, as faculty sponsor, has been an omen of good luck to this organization for several years. This club meets fourteen times during the school year — once in joint session with Hypatia — in the Blue Grotto, or in the home of one of its members. After dinner an original paper is given by some member relating to any subject in which he is particularly interested.

Robinson e Forget The Lest We Forget is the annual publication of Union Univer- sity which is sponsored by the Senior Class. The publication has been a yearly product of the school which dates back to the first years of the college. Since that time its presentation has come to be one of the most anticipated events of the spring term. The purpose of the book is the portrayal of the year ' s events in order that they may be recalled in the future. The 193 1 edition was directed by John Hurt, editor-in-chief, and Kepler S. Robinson, business manager. They have been ably assisted by a competent staff that has co-operated in every respect to make the book a worthy representation of the college.

Glenn Ramsey has served as editor-in-chief during the school year of 1930-31 with Bud Pritchett as business manager. The editor has encouraged the students in contributing to the paper through the medium of a contribution box. An attractive feature of the paper has been the Poets Corner, filled through such contributions. Each class and various organizations on the campus publish editions during the year, which increases the interest of the students in the pub- lication. The department of Journalism recently organized, has added much to the feature section of the publication. Ardent journalists are en- couraged in their efforts by the publishing of the best articles. The staff is endeavoring to make the Cardinal and Cream a semi- weekly publication in the near future. W " I %p " •-?

Union University was represented by twenty-five young people. They heard inspirational ad- dresses from the most eminent men in the Southern Baptist Convention. Those addresses set them on fire with new zeal and a greater determination to conquer the campus for Christ. The keynote of the convention was, " Christ, my only necessity, " which echoed and re-echoed on our campus when the representatives returned. At this convention Marshall Black was selected as president and Ruth Gibbons as secretary of Tennessee B. S. U. The State Convention will meet in Johnson City next year. It is expected that Union will have a large representation. Officers Marshall Black President Lucille Parker Vice-President Hazel Ellis • Secretary Dr. J. W.

This year the group has been divided into four circles, each a complete unit in itself. The programs are carried on in each independent circle, the circles I neeting together in general as- sembly once each month. Under this new form of government the Y. W.

Society of Religious Inquiry This organization has functioned continuously since its organization in 1877. It is is a society composed of ministerial students of the school, local pastors, and preacher members of the faculty. The object of the society is to aid the members in qualifying for the gospel min- istry. Local problems and doctrinal positions are topics of particular interest in the ) weekly meetings. The men who have gone out from this society have, for many years, been leaders of Southern Baptist thought. One of the most highly honored of the ones who have gone from this club is Dr. Savage, who was one of the charter members and remains the inspiration of the group. Many other nationally known men have gone from the J. R. Graves Society, but we dare not say which was the greater in the Master ' s service. Thus, Baptists the world over have harvested the fruits of this society year after year. Roll Truman Maxev Percy Ray J. L. McAliley Dr. G. M. Savage Dr. J. A. Pool E. L. Smothers V. A.

B ' ' VV- ' H y 1 Religious Activities N order to create and develop the proper spiritual attitude as found in Union, the college lays great stress upon her religious activities, which may be listed as follows : First, Chapel exercises of thirty minutes each day, con- sisting of reverent reading of the Scriptures and prayer, fol- lowed by a twenty-minute religious or inspirational talk. Second, the prayer meetings. These are: the daily noonday meetings held once a week in each hall, and the general prayer meetings for all students held in Chapel on some night other than Wednesday night which is reserved for prayer meetings in the city churches. Third, the J. R. G. Society of Religious Inquiry for the young preachers, which has already been described in this bulletin. Fourth, the Y. W. A. which includes a very large per cent of the girls and is one of the few college Y. W. A. ' s that has maintained the one hundred per cent standard for the past several years. Fifth, the Life Service Band. Sixth, the Baptist Student Union. Seventh, the annual college revival held usually in the Spring at which time a concentrated effort is made to reach every unsaved person in school and to lead all to dedication and re-consecration. These re- vivals mark the turning point in a great many lives each year. The revival last Spring was conducted by Dr. Scarborough, President of the Seminary at Ft. Worth, Texas. All of the above religious agencies and influences are in addition to the many Bible and religious courses offered in regular class work. The students also find opportunity for religious work in the city churches, which bid strongly for student co-operation and leadership. Few schools are pervaded with as strong religious and wholesome social atmosphere or do more to inspire their students with an aspiration for higher and better things. Fine Arts Mrs. Arthur Warren Prince Director of Conservatory Mrs. Arthur Warren Prince is a musician whom Union University is justly proud to have as Director of Conservatory. Her artistry has been recognized not only in Tennessee but in the entire South. Mrs. Prince is a teacher of unusual ability. For several years her students have won first honors in the State Music Contest of Federated Clubs. As well as being an extraordinary teacher and pianist, Mrs. Prince is an or- ganist of high type. Last year she was the holder of an organ scholarship with Dr. Davis, of Birmingham, England. She is a member of the Organist Guild of America. As a pianist, teacher, and organist Mrs. Prince has contributed much to the musical development of Jackson and she occupies an enviable posi- tion among the artists of the South. " •«8 Miss Catherine Routon Acting Dean of Home Economics Department Miss Catherine Routon, acting dean of the Department of Home Economics, holds a B.S. degree from Peabody College for Teachers and a M.S. degree from Iowa State College, Ames, Iowa. Miss Routon is acting as dean during the absence of Mrs. Hudson. She is the present chairman of student clubs of the state and of the West Tennessee Home Economics Association. Miss Routon, better known as Miss Catherine, is ably carry- ing on the work of this department and is ever an inspiration to those with whom she works. • i " V ■cQ%k Vr, W " ' « Union University Of all the organizations on the Hill that have furnished entertainment and genuine pleasure the band has been among the first. At all the athletic games the band has sent a pep squad that has added much to these events. Much good has been accomplished by the band and the students have appreciated it and enjoyed it greatly. The band owes much to the director, Mr. Hech, who has certainly done his best for Union. He is a man of rare musical ability and each one in the band is proud to call him friend. The people out in town have been kind to come and help out. Union appreciates the fine spirit and friendship that they have shown us. There has been much improvement and Union is proud to own a band of this calibre. Members Mr. Fred Heck Director Truman Maxev Manager Dorothy Graves Secretary Red Ginn Cornet Bertha Schuchart .

Speech Science and Dramatic Production Department of Dramatic Art Miss Saunders is a reader of talent, having a well modulated voice and distinct enunciation. She has appeared on many important programs and has delivered two addresses before the National Association of Teachers of Speech, which received much favorable criticism. Miss Saunders spent the past summer in study and travel in Eu- rope specializing in Speech Science, and Dramatic Art. She was for- tunate in being able to attend many Dramatic Festivals in London, Stratford-on-Avon, Paris and other cultural centers of Europe. Under the direction of Miss Saunders the Dramatic Department has staged some productions which have revealed the highest type of Dramatic Art. Miss Saunders ' ability and her understanding of Speech and Drama have made her an influential figure in dramatic circles. •K3W r Elizabeth Hamlin Graduates le Expression and Dramatic Art Rosa Borum Miss Borum has delighted audiences on the campus and in Jackson with her rare gift for entertaining. She has played leading roles in numerous plays and pageants. For her Junior Recital, Miss Borum read the drama, ' ' Good Medicine. " This year in her Senior Recital, she read miscellaneous repertoire embracing " Pauline Pavlavna " by Thomas Bailey Aldrich, a dramatic Bible narrative, and dialects in Scottish and Italian. Elizabeth Hamlin Miss Hamlin is one of Union ' s most talented and versatile readers. In her pleasing manner she has delighted her friends upon many occasions. For her Junior Recital she presented " The Neighbors, " by Zona Gale. She read for her Senior Recital " The Terrible Meek, " a religious play by Charles Rann Kennedy. s s • The Debating Team of Union University has always been recognized as one of the strongest group of forensic artists in the country. The council, working with Dr. Waiters, arranges contests with some of the strongest teams in the country. This year the boys defended the home field while the girls journeyed to foreign territory to gain laurels. Four veterans of last year, Glenn Ramsey, Tansil Palmer, Carleton Harris, and Marshall Black formed the nucleus of this year ' s squad which was further strengthened by many new- recruits.

EDITORIALS This is exactly the second issue of the " Scandal Sheet " and we positively believe it is the last one. The purpose of this little trouble-shooter is mainly to fill up what would be seven blank pages if we weren ' t asked to expound this nonsense. We composed and collected a bunch of jokes and a joke is not a joke unless it is on someone. So, dear reader, if that unfortunate happens to be you or some of your dear ones — be a sport. Remember that this is just a space filler and maybe your name ii helping this worthy cause. Well, anyway, we will be sorry if we hurt anyone ' s feelings. (He might find out who we are.) If any of the articles seem a little strong, see if they are not printed on stiff paper. It may be because you take them the wrong way. There are two sides to every question. Why take the wrong one ? If you are a little peeved, don ' t go to John Hurt just because he is editor of the annual. This doesn ' t have anything to do with the Lest We Forget except to finish it. There must be an end to all " good " things, and this is the end of this. FOUR MONTHS OUT OF A CHRONICLE BOOK SEPTEMBER •■School days! School days! Dear old golden rule days.

(Continued on Page 5J CAUSES TOO MUCH TROUBLE Miss Polly Tick, a gay and charming young lady but one who possessed the un- happy faculty of getting into mischief too often, was suspended at the last meeting of the Board of Trustees, and refused fur- ther admittance to Union until she cou ' d conduct herself properly. Miss Polly Tick was the cause of a fist fight between Henry Herron and Harry Hurt and it was decided that since she was arousing so much disturbance by her charm she would be forced to take herself where it would not be in evidence. There are many loyal friends of Polly Tick on the campus who are mourning her departure and who say that she was not really to blame for any disturbance. It cannot be denied that she was a lady pos- sessed of great charm and beauty, and one who was exceedingly popular, particularly with the gentlemen. There was never a social, political, or religious event on the hill to which Polly Tick was not invited and one of her finest characteristics was that she never failed to attend. Her bright face and sparkling eyes were to be seen at every meal, every ball game, each prayer meeting, all the parties and even in Student Council. There is no doubt but that she will be greatly missed, and it is hoped that in spite of her mischievous ways she will soon be permitted to return to old Union. STAFF Imah Bumme . . .

Manager FOOTBALL BANQUET SUCCESSFUL Banquet Gossip at a Glance The main part of the banquet came dur- ing the preparation for the " big feed. " The basement of the church looked like an ant hive because the girls were hurry- ing here and there getting everything ready. The amateur cooks were showing their skill dressing the two chickens and different ones were standing around tell- ing the others how to work and only get- ting in the way. The jelly from the crystallized apples wouldn ' t " jelly " and a hurried trip was made down town to get something to hasten matters. The orange baskets for the fruit cocktail weren ' t large enough so they had to pour out part of the fruit. The potatoes wouldn ' t stay on the half- shell and the celery wouldn ' t curl. Irene Williamson sprained her wrist trying to stir the dressing and Travis McDonald skinned a shin trying to catch a half- picked chicken. When Miss Johnson came she checked and everything became O. K. The time finally came and the boys took their favorite dates to the church. Con- nor Shannon was there rushing around trying to get a way to go home and get a " button. " He had to leave " Miss Amer- ica " for five minutes to do this. He ex- plained he was all right then but he would get sore at the end. We didn ' t understand him. Roger Murray was a good toastmaster, but it did seem as if he was conducting a Marriage Bureau for Bill Moss and Joe Gest who were making love to a post. Roger ' s jokes were fair. It was hard to tell whether he or John bought Doris ' ticket. If Roger didn ' t, he should have. Her Majesty, The Queen, was very regal looking as she pre- sented the football to Captain-elect Logan. Bud Pritchett was elected " Best Blocker " and R. J. Welch " Most Valuable Man. " They both deserved the honors. The speeches were very fine and none of them were monotonous. Wade and Dortha were holding hands during most of the affair. Harry Hurt felt a little guilty when Carleton played " I Ain ' t Got (Continued on Page 4) THE SCANDAL SHEET FRESHMEN ENTERTAIN SENIORS A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL —EXCEPT THE GREENIES. Murray Hall with a mustache ! Annie Lee West without her usual make-up. Conner Shannon with his hair combed down in his face. Frances Henson with freckled face. Guy Turner with make-up all over his face — and the rest of the Freshmen doing the same things. A person couldn ' t walk through town without seeing some Union Frosh bedecked in some outlandish costume. The tall ones with short trousers and the short ones with long trousers, and most of them wore their clothes backward. A person would take one look at them and couldn ' t tell whether they were coming or going! All- mon was very becoming in the short " knickers " that " Fatty " House wore last year. And Milton Sanderson ! We won- der what he carried in that " baby ' s make- up bag. " This was one time the Freshmen looked almost as dignified as the Seniors. It was the only time Richmond Medling and Dick Reynolds were seen carrying " eight inches of Books. " They should absorb enough from such close contact to make all A ' s this term. Maybe they will be able to an- swer, " Oui, Monsieur, " or " Two hours " until the end of school. When the boys started wearing their shirts backwards, they looked like priests or something. (Mostly " something. " ) Robert Summar was ecstasy. The boys couldn ' t shave until the week was up. With make-up on, those bristles made their faces look like red-handled hair brushes. The girls looked very enticing with their hair tied up in little green ribbons, and long pig-tails hanging down their backs. Without cosmetics some of those beauties looked like the last rose of sum- mer. We stood their looks O. K. when they " lip sticked " their noses and put freckles on their cheeks, but when they started getting reckless with the cold cream and left it on — Ugh ! Whew ! Another thing was noticed. There was a slight decrease in Freshmen dates at both halls compared with the time before Freshman week. We just can ' t under- stand that, can you? Here ' s to the Freshies, With their ignorance and green. They took their orders With submission serene. RIGHT Lives of many men remind us Nonv ive stop to think of it, We should never leave behind us Letters ive should not have zvrit. Suddenly, in the presence of companv, Dorothy Dunn began to chew gum vigor- ously. " Where on earth did you get that gum? " asked Mrs. Dunn. " Right here on the bottom of the seat, " said Dorothy. " Do you want some, Mother? " What The Eminent Logicians Of 1931 Have To Say Mr. Malcolm Lauderdale — Whatever is universal is not evil. Petting is universal ; therefore petting is not evil. Miss Ruth Carter — Everything which is able to restrict liberty is a source of dan- ger. Every student council is able to re- strict liberty; therefore every student coun- cil is a source of danger. Mr. Tom Armor — No bird is a bat. Louree Weeks is not a bird; therefore Louree Weeks is a bat. Miss Dortha Hocker — All crimes are punishable by law. Kissing in the dark is a crime (according to all matrons) ; therefore kissing in the dark is punishable by law. Mr. Johnston Luton — All human rela- tions involve compromise. Marriage is a human relation; therefore marriage in- volves compromise. Miss Alice Thomas — All boys who live in Adams Hall are mean. Fred Hicks and Rocky Palmer live in Adams Hall; there- fore Fred and Rocky are mean. Mr. Walter Gradye — Tradition in Logic has favored the view that the first figure is better than the other and a closer analysis has shown that they do not need reduction.

THE SCANDAL SHEET Union ' s Contributions To " Who ' s Who " BERNARD SCATES The leader of the preachers. Bernard is a pianist of note — usually the wrong one. He weighs his words before he speaks and is never accused of short weight. He ' s president of the student ' s body, and he tries to better his soul. He has Elaine on his hands ' cause he doesn ' t know where to Parker. KEPLAR ROBINSON The Campus Cop. He is looked on wi;h disfavor by some of the Crook Hall girls because he chased a man away from over there one night. Keplar is the son of one of the " early settlers, " and he pays his bills promptly on the first of every month. You can read his character in his eyes. He got a black eye once. R. J. WELCH The greatest comedian on the hill. He likes two types of girls — Those who want to be kissed and those who kiss to be wanted. He makes excellent grades when- ever he pleases and has a pleasing disposi- tion. R. J. worked for a man once upon a time who removed his legs from the wheel-barrow so he couldn ' t rest. He says that it ' s the girl who " rolls " in at 2 P. M. who is considered respectable. ROSA BORUM The beauty queen. Rosa believes in acquired characteristics. After hearing hers and Miss Saunders ' voicces, we do, too. It ' s our opinion that she has a very beautiful hand and the same is held by just one person. She wears a large dia- mond which she says is the flower of all the rings. (She must mean flour-paste.) Rosa told someone that jellyfish get their jelly from the ocean currents. FRED HICKS The sheikiest of the sheiks. He had a date that just cost a dollar and ten cents. He explained that it was all she had. He is going to be an architect. He built a chicken coop out of his head and had plenty of wood left over to build a dog kennel. We saw him tip a waiter and the poor fellow lost his balance completely and bumped his head. Fred went with a girl for eighteen days last year. She was on one of those diets. CARLETON HARRIS Another sheik. His ties and sweaters make more racket than a gangster outfit. He paid a doctor five dollars to find out why he was always cold at night. The doc told him his " neck " was bad. He changed his mind when he was a Soph and the new one isn ' t much better. He doesn ' t like the " home loving " type of girl. They all require a roadster. Carle- ton had a date with a girl once just be- cause she was " warmly " recommended and for about a month he sang, " I still get a chill, thinking of you. " FOOTBALL BANQUET SUCCESSFUL LOST AND FOUND (Continued from Page 1) Nobody. " " Tip " Taylor was doing very- well that night. Of course, Shannon and I were there ! One of the most impressive things was the tribute the players paid to Coach Stewart by means of a letter which showed him their love for him and their appreciation for his good work. Rules were off until 11:15 ar, d tnen tne outstanding social event came to a close. The banquet was talked about for a long time afterward.

" THE SCANDAL SHEET APP ACCOSTED AND ARTFULLY ASSAULTED BISCUITS OR BISKETS What was one of the most dastardly robberies of the year took place January 15 at 1:30 P. M. when Robert Thompson was struck down on his way to the bank and left as dead, while the thieves made away with the fifty dollars in bi Is he was carrying to the bank for deposit. Two men who refused to give their names but who had the appearance of college students and who wore buttons with the emblem " C. L. S. " on them are being held in custody at the police station. Mr. Thompson, who is secretary and treasurer for the Apollonian Literary So- ciety at Union University, had been in- trusted with a leather bag containing the funds of the Society Treasury and was hastening to the bank to deposit them be- fore it closed. At the corner of College and Irby streets two masked men grabbed him about the shoulders and threw him to the ground while they snatched the leather bag from his hands. They then stomped him into insensibility and ran down the street. A passerby, witnessing their flight, hastily called the po ' ice who set bloodhounds on their trail and rounded them up. It is thought that the two suspects who are being held are members of the Cal- liopean Literary Society at Union and that the rob bery was to secure sufficient funds to hold the annual ball of the Society. Due to the crash in Wall Street the mem- bers of the Society have been financially embarrassed for several months and their treasury has been practically empty. Many believe that the crafty Calliopeans, knowing that the steadfast Apps would have a full treasury, deliberately planned the robbery with the intent of using the money for the ball. However, the two boys who were captured refuse to say a word. Mr. Thompson is in a serious condition but it is thought he will recover. At the first word of his accident, Mrs. Rice has- tened to his bedside and she will nurse him back to health and strength. A VERSE OF SPACE The davenport held the twain, Fair Doris and her handsome swain — Heandshe. But, hark! A foot upon the stair! Mrs. Timmerman finds them sitting then He — and — she! James Logan: " Ten years ago Orbie Hickman gave an elephant a chew of to- bacco and last year the elephant saw him and remembered him, and ran amuck try- ing to get at him. Isn ' t that a remark- able memory? " R. J. Welch: " Hmm! Remarkable face! " Say, have you heard the latest? The school has inaugurated a policy of peace, retrenchment and reform; especially re- trenchment. The first place to suffer from this economical inspiration was the spot most sacred to the heart of all Unionites, our dear old Dorcas Hall. On a bright January morning the econ- omy forces swept down upon the unsus- pecting workers within and in a few min- utes their captain (Mr. M. M. ) was in the " Holy of Holies, " (THE Kitchen) and there he found — Well, what do you suppose he found? Oh! You would never guess. " Such extravagance would break a mil- lionaire, " he said. " The very idea of cooking so much bread ; the students have all eaten and here are twenty-one biscuits left. I tell you this is ridiculous. " He stormed: " Here I am trying my best to make ends meet and you all wasting things down here this way! DON ' T LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN, " he said as he left the building. The next day he came for another count, and this time there were only seven " sink- ers " left. (Logan had gone to breakfast that morning.) " Now this is better. I am glad to see you improving so; just keep the good work going. " On his return three days later he was greeted by twenty-three " hard tacks. " " This will never do, " he wailed. " Asque, how much of each ingredients do you put in this bread ? " " Boss, " she replied, " I don ' t put no in- gredients in it ' tall; I jest puts flour, an ' milk, an ' sech truck. " " Well, " he said. " How- much of those things do you use? " " Well, sir, " Asque answ T ered, " I uses one teaspoon full of soda, one table spoon full of baking powders, ' bout a quart of lard, two gallens of milk, a peck of flour and a little salt. " " Now let ' s make some calculations, " said Mr. M. M. " All of those things make five hundred and seven biscuits; we want to cut the number down to four hundred and eighty-seven; that means you must use one gram less of soda, two grams less of baking powder, two ounces less lard, twelve C. C. ' s less milk, and forty-eight grains of salt less; this will bring the number down to four hundred and eighty-nine. You can give the two extra ones to Mr. Prince ' s dog. (This caused the dog ' s death.) FOUR MONTHS OUT OF A CHRONICLE BOOK Miss Skinner: " Mr. Luton, what are the two genders ? " Johnston: " Masculine and feminine.

The announcements were read and some girl had the devotional. The Lovelace Hall girls were all dressed up for the occa- sion and we just settled back in our seats to watch them proceed. To our consternation, things started to happen. The girl in charge yelled out something about losing the program and that they would have to ask Dr. Watters to give his talk on " Use of Leisure Mo- ments. " The whole bunch left the plat- form and we waited for the talk to begin. Dr. Savage stood up and said, " There must be a misfit — Dr. Watters isn ' t even here, " just as his image walked out of the little room on the left of the stage. It was the faculty. But what a faculty! Dr. Watters (Annie Whittington) took charge and he introduced the members. Dr. Savage (Lou Switzer) told us to study to be quiet. Dean Prince (Maggie Noel) announced the campus course would be changed on his schedule to the chapel hour. Dr. Wi.liams (Sarah Elston) said that he would not meet his Greek students because of the " Ruttory " meeting. Dr. Jent (Lucille Bowen) gave a talk on " School Spirit " interspersed with Yale yells. Prof. Beck (Mable Redd) stuck out his jaw and asked Florence Newton to " spit out that gum. " Miss Saunders (Rosa Borum) gave an excellent rendition of " The Fan, " accompanied by Mrs. Prince (Blanche Young). " Aa-Aa " Dunn (Pearl Patton) announced th e game for that night. Mrs. Summar wanted some- one to return that book to the library. Dr. Davis (Sue Smith) told a joke (imagine that!). Mr. Summar, Dr. Poole, Dr. Penick, Walter Rowland were well imi- tated. When the time was up, Doctor Savage told us how to march out. The affair was enjoyed very much by the students and more so by the Faculty. Someone said, " With a little more practice they could have it perfect. " Well, the Faculty members have practiced quite a long while! • £ MWMM» M1JMMMMW " W1 " J Hi 145 r LEST-WE-FORGET 1931 Union University Year Book Jackson, Tenn. Feb. 15, 1 93 1 Student Body, Union University, Jackson, Tenn. Dear Students: — Now that the 1931 edition of Lest We Forget has been brought to a close we want to take this opportunity to thank those who have co-operated with the staff in the publication of this book. As the majority of you know, the annual was published under very difficult and trying circumstances. The depressed financial con- ditions had their effect upon our revenue, forcing us to forward most of the pictures and the majority of the copy to the printer at an early date to earn a discount. To those whose pictures were emitted we would offer our apologies and trust that you will realize that it was through no intention of ours. We would like to thank the many friends of the school who bought ads in the book. They have proved to be real supporters of the college and we urge you to give them your patronage. We are indebted to the Benson Printing Company, and Mr. John T. Benson in particular, for their many valuable suggestions. They have taken a personal interest in our publication and have been untiring in their suggestions. We trust that in the future years the 193 1 Lest We Forget will furnish you with many hours of amusement and with many pleas- ant memories of your days in Union.

I did not hold the driver right, Jim said it was my stance. We had two balls, a white and blue, To play the game that day, But Jim, a husky, tall tree lad, Soon knocked his ball away. For two long hours we searched the field Beyond the two-hole green, But bless my shirt that colored ball Was nowhere to be seen. We had to quit our little game, We ' d just made round eleven; But in that time I broke the par, I made a two-hole seven.

Those are the mystic lines. We recite them in Logic class with a misty feeling in a misty voice. We say them, little realizing their hidden meaning. Long years ago they were one part of the diary of old great, great, great grandfather Sel- lars, whose grandson wrote our Logic text. Written in the old time fashion and spelled in the old time way, they made an appeal to Mr. Sellars and he put the lines in his book to fill up space. We today cannot grasp all they were written to mean in the long ago, but printed below is a translation of the words, about which vou can make your own decisions. Barbara, cellar rent day.

A Bedtime Story For The Faculty Members One Summar a lad named Gilbert, Decided that he would go To visit the places lie had seen In the picture show. He sent a Dunn to W il Hams, For bills that were long past due, And spent the money in buying a Carr- A bus 0} blue. In this he started his journey, And rode ' till he reached the sea. Then took a ship o ' er the Walters deep. Quite thrilled was he! A storm came up at midnight; The Rout-on the compass was lost. Hard-in toward the rocks the ship was Severely tossed. When Gilbert awoke next morning, He lay upon the sand. And at his side a Savage stood — A Timmer-man. The Timmer-man took Gilbert, And led him to the rest. And there they fed him Rice and ale — An honored auest. They decked him out in feathers They cut from off some Cox, And sent him Saunder-ing through the woods, Without his socks. His feet were scratched and bloody, And when he reached a Pool, He sat him down and stuck them in To rest and cool. The Savage Prince pursued him, And clutched him by the hair, And told him they would slice him up, And serve him rare. Poor Gilbert grew quite frightened, And pled with many tears — " Don ' t cook me, Prince. Aw, be a Jent, And calm my fears! " The savages all shouted, " We ' ll eat tonight, by Heck! " And Gilbert sizzled, calling out, " Whoa Beck! " And when they served poor Gilbert, To Savage Prince, named Billy, He said, " You ' ve given me the hands. Ma c, — a — lily !

" - The Wooing of Hiawatha City Woods " As unto ilie beau the girl is Sweeter than a hundred roses, So she draws man, yet obeys him, So she leads him on and onward, While she meekly does his bidding. " Thus the youthful lad called " City, " Said within himself and pondered, Mucli perplexed by various feelings, Listless, longing, hoping, fearing, Dreaming still of Lucile Bowen, Of ilie lovely Lucile Bowen, In the Hall iliat ' s known as Lovelace. " In Crocket Mills you ' ll find a wife, Lloyd, " Warning, said the Dad of " City. " " Go not eastward, go not westward, For a stranger whom you know not. ' But my " City " Woods did answer Only this: " Dear Father, Mother, Very pleasant is the firelight, But I like the starlight better, Better do I like the moonlight. And I know a lovely maiden, Dwelling in a Hall called Lovelace, H ' hom I hope to call my wifey, She is lovely Lucile Bowen. " Gravely then said Dad to " City, " " Bring not here an idle maiden, Bring not here a useless ' woman, Bring a wife with nimble fingers, Heart and hand that move together. " And our Lloyd, still smiling, answered, " In the school that ' s known as Union, There they teach a course in cooking, And they give a course in sewing, And my lovely Lucile Boiven, Loveliest of all the girls there, Knows just how to run a family. Here to Crocket Mills I ' ll bring her, And you ' ll love her as a daughter. She shall run upon your errands, Make your coffee in the morning, Cook my supper in the evening, Kiss me as I leave for ploughing. " Tims departed handsome " City, " To the town thafs known as Jackson, To the dormitory they call Lovelace. Quickly did he ring the doorbell, Quickly with his heart a-flutter, And when Mrs. Rice appeared there, H e could hardly stammer to her That he wished to see the maiden, Whom he loved with all his being. When she stood at last before him, Gazing up with love upon him, He did snatch her to his bosom, And did cover her with kisses, And then added, speaking slowly, " That this joy may last forever, And our hearts be more united, Come and be my wife, you darling, Lucile with the golden tresses, Loveliest In Lovelace Hallway. " Then Lucile in tears, yet smiling, Stood a little while in silence, Looked at " City " Lloyd so proudly, Fondly looked upon her hero, And made answer very gravely, While she said, and blushed to say it, " I will follow you, my husband, Straight to Crocket Mills I ' ll follow, And I ' ll be your own Lucile dear. " Thus was " City ' s " artful wooing, Thus it was lie won the maiden, That he wanted — wanted badly, Maiden with the golden tresses. And Then There Was None Ten little flappers standing in a line, John took Doris and then there were nine. Nine little flappers waiting for a date, Milton took Elaine and then there were eight. Eight little flappers on their way to heaven, Earl took Hazel and then there were seven. Seven little flappers living in the sticks, Maiden took Willie and then there were six. Six little flappers very much alive, Wade took Dortha and then there were five. Five little flappers going to the store, Smothers took Louise and then there were four. Four little flappers out on a spree, Lloyd took Lucile and then there were three. Three little flappers with nothing to do, Shannon took Irene and then there were two. Two little flappers having lots of fun, Fred took Gladys and then there was one. One little flapper looking rather harried, Willard took Annie and now they are married. — Andy. THIS BOOK PRINTED BY.
