“Every age hath its book.’’—The Koran.
In preparing The Seminole 1916, our one aim has been to portray faithfully in its pages the life of the University as it is, in all its various phases. We have tried to see that each one of the many campus activities tending to upbuild our school and our State be represented here. We can only hope that our efforts have been so successful that the members of the student body, for whom, primarily, we have prepared this book, may find it truly a Memory Hook of their own, and may say of us, in the words of Montaigne, “You have only made here a collection of other i eople s flowers, having provided nothing of your own but the cord to bind them together.”

History of the Class of 1916
The undergraduate days of our class, the class of 1010, are numbered. All too scon we will have to taste of the bitter-sweet cup from which all those must drink who leave friends and places which they have learned lo love, to enter some field where duty calls.
And we do truly love our Alma Mater. Not soon can we blot from our memories the picture of vine-covered Thomas or Buckman, or the broad campus dotted with its stately pines. Not soon shall we forget the associations formed during the one, two, three, or four years which we have spent here. Never will we remember save with grateful hearts the kindly spirit manifested towards us by the faculty. But the time to part has come, so we must put our house in order and make room for the class of ’17, which is to come after us.
In 1912 our career as a class began, when we entered forty-six strong. Through various fluctuations and vicissitudes we have passed, with some losses and some additions every year—especially last year, when we were joined by the Junior lawyers—until now, as graduates, we number forty-nine.
To attempt to enumerate fully the achievements of the members of the class would be impossible in a chronicle of this length. And yet we feel confident that it will be many a day before the younger sons of old Florida forget how Harry Thompson hit the line, or Joe Swanson took in forward passes; how “Rex" and “Ix t” broke up many a baseball game with their old war clubs; how “Pug" Hamilton and “Dearie” developed a University Band second to none; how “Gabby" and Spessard sent the chosen sons of Tulane back without a decision; how Harvey Hall and “VV. J." Barker “shot the profs” without the slightest compunction; or how “Junk" and Blount, with their cheering gang heli ed the Gators to victory.
Certain it is that the class of '16 has done its full share in all of the campus activities, which are working for the greatness of our Alma Mater. And certain it is, also, that the members of the class—far from being satisfied with our showing as undergraduates—are going out into our chosen paths of life with our love for the school that sends us forth not undiminished, but rather heightened by our realization of the debt we owe her. To reflect credit upon her will l e our constant aim—and to hear of her success will give us never-failing pleasure.
We will not say “Good-bye," because we expect to come back again, and again, whenever occasion permits. We simply say, “Au Revoir.” Fellow students, kind faculty, dear Alma Mater, may you prosper!

86T. J. Swanson, Football Manager
We often hear the men of football teams boasting of their manager; his ability as a director and his ever thoughtfulness for the needs, pleasures and comforts of his charges; but there is not a team that ever trotted onto a gridiron that has had a manager that, we feel, is just as good as our “Manager Joe.”
The whole season through he was always on the alert lest some opportunity to be of service to his team or school should escape him. He made a thorough success of the season financially, which speaks well of his abil-
Read from left to right.
LOTSPEICH, ‘'Daddy”—Captain, tackle, 3 years. Age 23 (?); weight 175; height 5 ft. 10 in. Captain Lot was a true and worthy representative of the Gator squad. Fight seemed his middle name and he lived up to it the whole season through, lie knew every particular and phase of the game from the kick off to the sound of the final whistle, and was always on the job cheering and urging the men on in the fight, at the same time playing a star tackle.
FARRIOR, “Kt'x”—Center, 3 years. Age 19; weight 170; height 5 ft. 8% in. We have frequently seen big men against small men and have foretold the result, but in the case of old “Rex” the story was the other way. In the very heart of all the scrimmage, he nearly always outplayed his man, though frequently outweighed 40 pounds. And it never took an opposing team long to find that the center of our line was impregnable. He was a hound at following the ball and didn’t know what it was to fumble. He was one of our most consistent players and seldom failed to kick goals after touchdowns.
GOLDSBY, “Jack”—'Tackle, 2 years. Age 20; weight 185; height 5 ft. 9 in. If one wished to see some real "pep,” he had only to watch our “Jack” either at practice or in a game. For him to knock out an opponent was a common occurrence, and when he got one ho wanted more. Florida never had a harder fighter or a more consistent player, both on offense and defense. He handled two hundred pounders with ease.
88SPARKMAN, “Jim”—Half, 2 years. Age 19; weight 167; height 5 ft. 8 in. It did the heart of the football fan good to watch “Jim,” our strongest player of the season, hit the line, squirming, twisting, and fighting his way through masses of heavy men for good gains. And on the defense “Jim” was a wonder; not knowing what it was to miss a man, and always stopping the heaviest with a jolt. "Jim" is also a good passer.
FULLER, “Artie"— Full, 2 years. Age 20; weight 158; height 5 ft. 11% in. We have a real pigskin artist in “Artie.” He was one of our most consistent ground gainers as well as a sure and hard tackier. And many were the tight positions that Florida found herself in, depending on "Artie’s” toe to reach safety and never did he fail us, out-kicking his opponents the whole season through.
THOMPSON, “Hurry K."—Half, 2 years. Age 24; weight 150; height 5 ft. 7% in. “Harry K.”, though small, was a terror on the gridiron. He has yet to see the man so big that he couldn’t stop him in his tracks, and many arc the times that spectators have held their breath, only to burst into cheers as he ducked through the line or skirted an end for a spectacular gain. He was one of Florida’s surest men.
89Head from left to right.
WILKINSON, " foird 1 Hill"— End, 1 year. Age 22; weight 145; height 6 ft. ZVx in. It is seldom that now men come out and make good player the first year, but "Howdy Hill” did. With his marvelous running and his amazing display of “grit,” he made, in his first year, one of the best ends Florida has had. It took him a few weeks at the first of the season to become acquainted with the details and tricks of the game, but at the latter part of the season he was starring, being a sure, heartless tackier and an unfailing receiver of the forward pass.
RAMSDELL, "Hammy"—Quarter, 3 years. Age 21; weight 150; height 5 ft. 10 in. The little general of the Florida outfit was a cool and level-headed leader. His speed was marvelous and his ability at picking holes in the line was uncanny. His skill at running back punts was unbelievable, and seldom did he fail on those spectacular end runs which were his favorite pastime and Florida’s main ground gainers. "Hammy" was next to perfection on shooting both long and short forward passes.
HENDERSON, " "—End 3 years. Age 20; weight 150; height 5 ft. in. There are few runners in the S. I. A. A. that succeeded in getting around "B” and we haven't seen the interference he couldn’t break. He was one of our strong men in the line and a flashy player in the open. Many times during the season he received long passes that brought home long distances for Florida, while at intercepting the passes of opponents he was a marvel.
Road from loft to right.
COLLINS, “Paul”—Sub., Linesman. Age 22; weight 175; height 5 ft. “Paul” has good weight and what is more, knows how to make use of it. He U light and on several occasions displayed great ability, which truly dubbed him the Gators.” Wo are all glad that he is to Is with us next season.
DOWLING, “Ham”—Sub., 1 year. Age 20; weight 185; height 5 ft. 9 4 in. “Ham” came to us from Duval High and has fully upheld the reputation he bore then as a football player. Being made of real football material he was used to advantage both in the line and back field. In several games his line playing was a feature. When placed in the line it was more than a hard job for an opponent to break through.
DeVANE, "Fat”—Sub. Guard, 1 year. Age 20; weight 205; height G ft. This big boy with his enormous weight did wonders at guard in every opportunity given him. He improved wonderfully under Coach McCoy’s training, giving a good account of himself in several games. Watch him star next year.
91BUSHNELL, uBu§hn— Halfback, 1 year. Arc 21; weight 150; height 5 ft. in. Here is a man who though not a regular, was given several opportunities and always made an excellent showing. In the back field he could be relied upon both on offense and defense, hitting the line low and hard and always a sure tackier.
EMBRY, “Ed”—Half, full, 1 year. Age 22; weight 170; height 5 ft. 11 in. When you find a man looking for a player that always showed the old fight and pep and who knew not the meaning of “yellow,” tell him to look “Ed” over. As a line plunger he was superhuman. If he couldn’t go through, he went over and for good consistent gains. He was unfortunate in having his knee injured in the middle of the season, which hindered his playing at the later part.
STOCKTON, “Stork”—Sub. 1 year. Age 21; weight 160; height 5 ft. 9 in. Stock-ton turned out to be a real “find” from among the new men this year. He could be placed either in the line or back field and to good advantage. “Stock" promises fair to be one of Florida's coming stars.
92Read from left to right.
ROBLKS, "Liza”—Tackle, 1 year. Age 21; weight 180; height 5 ft. 11 in. A wonderful specimen of manhood is “Liza” and every ounce of him a football player. At tackle he was invincible. Florida never had cause to regret her dependence on him for kicking on various occasions. He seemed to delight in hitting big men hard and seldom did a team make any gains over him, while he opened “wagon trails" through the best of lines.
YON, "Major”—Guard, 2 years. Age 20; weight 175; height 5 ft. 11 in. “Major” was without doubt one of the best guards in the South. We have yet to see him be carried back by his opponent. He played close to the ground, and yet, kept his eyes open and never failed when the runner attempted to go over his position. If all teams displayed as much of the “old light” as “Yonnie” they would surely be winners.
93Review of the Football Season
The 'Gators fought a great fight in their first game of the season, when they matched themselves against the wonderful Auburn team at Auburn on October 9. It was by the closest | ossihle decision that Auburn got the ball which led to the only score of the game. The result was Auburn 7, Florida 0. t
Then on the 16th the Alligators took on the fast Sewanee eleven at Jacksonville. That was a battle royal, both teams fighting their hardest for the advantage. But weight told on the ’Gators and the boys from the University of the South scored a touchdown, winning the game by the narrow margin of 7-0.
After two such hard fights the team took a much needed rest, in the middle of which a game with Southern was scheduled on the 30th at Gainesville. It was rather easy for the Florida outfit to win, the score being 45-0.
Probably the hardest game of the season came on the 6th of November when the team went up to Jacksonville to try its strength with the young giants that represented the Universiy of Georgia. Outnumbered and outweighed, and having several of their best men out of the game, the ’Gators received their only bad defeat of the season. The Georgians walked away with the game with a score of 37-0.
91Dropping back to more nearly their own equal on November 18 the ‘Gators met, on their own ground, the eleven from the Citadel. It was a fast and hard-fought game, but the rush of the "Crackers” was not to be stopped and the Carolinians again went down to defeat at Florida's hands, with a score of 6-0.
The Citadel game was followed by a game here with Tulane University. This was Florida’s first game with Tulane and the New Orleans boys received rather a rough reception, for in a torrential rain they were defeated, 14-7.
The last game of the season was with Mercer at Macon on Thanksgiving Day. One would have thought that the Alligators had been laying for the Mercerites the whole season through, for they played the field almost at will, the final score being Florida 34, Mercer 7.
Z. J. Stanley, Assistant Coach, Football and Baseball
The University was very fortunate in securing the services of Mr. Z. J. Stanley as assistant coach in football and baseball. He is a graduate of Earlham, where he was a shining light on the football team, and was also on the basketball and baseball teams. Last year he successfully coached the Maryville College eleven, but decided to embark in the legal profession and chose "Florida" as the school for his legal training. Coach Stanley is exceedingly popular, and we hope to have him with us again next season. He is a regular "Hoosier."

Scrub Football Team
Of all the organizations on the campus the Scrub Football Team shows more real pep, fighting spirit, and loyalty to their college than any other. Little do we realize the trying conditions under which they work for the few little games that they have, paying for them by that daily grind of ceaseless toil, hard knocks and bruised joints from the Varsity scrimmages. They are always on the job: the first on the field, the last to leave, fighting constantly against the heavier and more experienced first team. They have held the Varsity to a small advantage in the practice games, not infrequently forcing them back down the field for a touchdown. They get little praise and nobody thanks them. But their insuperable spirit brings them out every day with that old fighting pep which makes the Varsity work its hardest, thus producing the excellent team that represented the 'Gator institution last fall. Such is our Scrub Team, and, for their loyalty, we hereby extend to them the thanks of the University and the appreciation of the Varsity and coach.
Started only last year, the remarkable zeal and interest in tin's branch of athletics was indeed gratifying. Scon after Thanksgiving, at the call of the coaches of the respective classes nearly a hundred loyal classmen responded and the old gridiron was again the scene of activity and hard knocks as the new teams were rapidly whipped into shape. One would have thought that the regular varsity practice was going on. judging by the eagerness with which the men endeavored to gain control of untrained muscles and to learn to handle the elusive oval. Individual differences were forgotten in their desire to make a winning class team and each squad worked together for the class they represented.
After two weeks of hard practice the first game occurred, in which the Freshmen defeated the Sophomores with apparent ease. The Seniors defeated the Juniors in a hard-fought and exciting battle. Then came the final test between the Freshmen and the exalted Seniors. Both teams expressed themselves as confident of victory and both were justified, the Freshmen on their strength and weight—the Seniors on their speed and form; and the game was a gruelling contest. The “Rats" determined to take advantage of the opportunity and assert themselves; the Seniors were equally determined to suppress the lowly Freshmen. The struggle waged down the field with each team obtaining momentary advantage, the only score being a beautiful field goal kicked by Holland in the first quarter, giving the class championship to the Seniors by the narrow margin of 3-0.
Hugh Wicker, Coach
NVe were most fortunate in being able to secure such a competent man as Mr. Wicker for our baseball coach. He is a man of high standards, moral integrity and experience, making a most capable director of the squad and an excellent example for the men to follow. He comes to us with a fine baseball record to his credit, having played four years of organized ball in the Blue Grass League of Kentucky, holding next nest hitting average of the league. He has seen and knows all classes of baseball from the back alley ball of the grade school to the biggest professional ball in the country. We could not have found a man more thoroughly acquainted with the game and the methods of imparting his knowledge to his men. The Florida team has always been more or less handicap] ed by a scarcity of baseball material, but Coach Wicker had a young mob out for his team and produced a club that has given a good account of itself the whole
; M| J through and has beaten some of the best teams in
the S. I. A. A. And now, at the close of the season.
V i we arc Justly proud of the team he has made and the record they have won for their college. We are glad Jjr to know that Coach “Wick,” big brother to the base-ball outfit, is to be with us again next year, when, with the excellent training the men have had this to begin on, he will, without doubt, make a winning team for us.
Harry W. Thompson, Manager
The managing of the baseball outfit is one of the most trying and difficult offices that a student of this University has to deal with. The signal honor and the pleasure of the trips that come to the baseball manager are surely well earned. However, in the face of all the difficulties of expenses and the forming of a desirable schedule, our able manager Harry “K” brought the team out with a surprisingly small financial loss, considering the poor support which, we regret to say, is shown here, in this sport. Nor have we heard complaints from any of the team. Their every need has received the immediate and careful consideration of Harry “K.” We are proud of him and his record.

J. B. FARRIOK, "Rex' —Catcher. P’arrior was our mainstay behind the bat again this season. His catching and throwing showed marked improvement over last year, and he was also the most consistent hitter on the team, especially when hits meant runs.
T. J. SWANSON, "Joe"—First Rase, doe found his natural position this season— that of taking care of hard bounders and wild throws that came towards the initial cushion. He played an excellent game at first and at times showed his old fence busting form, especially in the Tennessee game.
A. A. LOTSPEICH, “Uncle Lot”—Captain, Second Rase. “Uncle Lot” had the best season of his career at the keystone sack. He proved us capable a captain of baseball as he did of football, and always kept up light and pep in the players.
HENRY WILLIAMS, “Willie”—Short, Third Rase. “Willie" is about the only man on the team who gives promise of developing into a real big leaguer. Altho a first year man, he played a remarkable game at short, and it is easy to predict that he will be a stellar light on the Varsity for three years to come.
W. H. O’BERRY, “Berry”—Third Rase. O’Bcrry proved himself one of the most valuable men on the team, due to his ability to play the in field and outfield equally well. He also showed good form behind the bat in the practice games at the last of the season, making him invaluable as a utility man. “Berry" should develop into a star player next season.
R. G. MKRRIN, “Dick”—Short. Merrin has finished his third successful season with the Varsity. He was shifted from short to third at the beginning of the season and played his usual steady game at the difficult corner. Dick has been one of our most consistent players and is always in the fight.
S. L. HOLLAND, “Spcs”—Pitcher. Holland was one of our best bets in the box thruout the season. His delivery is deceptive, as well as the “stuff” he puts on the ball. This is attested by the fact that he fanned five of Connie Mack’s athletics in a row during the two innings he pitched. Spessard, betides taking his turn regularly in the box, was used as a relief pitcher also.
T. H. GETZEN, “Get”—Right Field. At right field Hardy plays some real ball. They are few and mighty hard ones that "Get" misses and to add to that he is one of the best hitters on the ’Gator squad.
A. W. RAMSDELL, “Rammy”—Center Field. Ramrny is considered our best fielder. He is fast and sure and seems to delight in difficult plays, which he most always makes good. He is the same consistent player we have known for three years.

E. M. YON, "Major"—Left Field. The left of the field was always safe in “Major’s" hands. He had one or two lifted over his head, but hard luck comes to all of us at times. This is his third year, also, and he has never failed to deliver the goods, especially at the bat.
JIM JOHNSON, "Jimmy"—Pitcher. We didn't have many pitchers, but those wc had were good ones, and Jimmy was one of the best. He could have been fitted with several pop-olT valves and then had steam to spare, which, with his excellent control, made him one of our most dependable pitchers.
ROSKNBUSH, "Rotcy”—Pitcher. Rosey was the boy that brought the cheers from the crowd at regular intervals. Many times wc have seen him with the bases full and none down, only to fan three straight. It takes real pitching to do that sort of thing. Rosey is one of those scarce "hitter-pitcher" combinations.
F. E. POOSKR, "Poo:”—Pitcher. The master of the spit-ball is Pooser. He has a spit-ball that baffles them all. The cold weather at the first of the season hit him hard and left him a sore shoulder, but he never stopped for that, and in spite of it has pitched some of our best games.
W. K. CARUTIIKRS, "Krucus”—Pitcher. A little hard luck in his classes kept Caruthers from making a regular on the squad, but don’t ever think that he didn't have the “stuff" on that old pill. “Krucus" has good form and worlds of steam and bids fair to develop into one of the best pitchers Florida has ever had.
104Review of Baseball Season
The baseball season of 1916 has been a success from several points of view. Altho the Varsity has not won a large percentage of the games, we have to take into con-siderntion the fact that the caliber of the teams played has been very much higher than in years past. Then, too, more games were scheduled this season than ever before.
The season was opened in Gainesville February 21st with Columbia College, who always has a strong baseball team. Columbia won the first, I to 3, but Florida came back the next day and defeated them 3 to 2 in a beuuti.'ul and well-played game.
On February 28th the Jacksonville All-Stars journeyed to Gainesville for a three-game scries, the “leaguers” winning the first two by the scores of II to . 1 and 7 to 3, while the University won the third game 4 to 2.
Kcwatin, who humbled us last season, was defeated in both games of a double-header on March 9th to the tune of 5 to 4, and 16 to 2.
Connie Mack’s Athletics were the next victims (?). They walloped the sphere all over the lot and piled up 20 runs to our 5. This eventful game took place on March 22nd.
The team then took their first road trip, journeying to DeFuniak Springs, Fla., for a series with Palmer College. This little school had garnered about as good a bunch of ball-players as an amateur team usually runs up against. Their two pitchers, the coach and a professor in the school, were both South Atlantic leaguers, and they were accorded good xupport. The Varsity played better ball here than in any games during the season. The first game was lost, 2 to 1, the second won, I to 0, and the last one lost, 1 to 0.
On April Nth and 15th the annuul series in Tallahassee was played with Mercer, instead of Auburn as in previous years. The first game was a 5 to 2 victory for Florida, but on the second day Mercer reversed the tables and won 12 to 6.
The greatest victory of the season occurred in the series with Tennessee, played here on April 28th and 29th. After having been drubbed in the first game by the score of 10 to 2, the Varsity won the first game of a double-header the following day 6 to 5, overcoming a three-run lead in the last half of the ninth. The second game of the double-header, the deciding one of the series, was won 2 to 1 in one of the hardest played games of the season.
On May 7th the team left on a tour of Georgia and Alabama, playing Mercer, Southern University and Auburn. At the time of going to press the Varsity had lost two hard-fought games to Mercer, 5 to 2 and 2 to 1.
Coach Wicker is due much credit and praise for his efficient work. Altho hampered by lack of material, the team has made a good record, and should prove a contender for the S. I. A. A. championship next season.
105The Scrub Baseball Team
Like the Football Scrubs, this team fills the important office of whipping into shape the Varsity nine. Much work, hard knocks, and little appreciation for their work, is the lot of the Scrubs.
This season the team, coached by Z. J. Stanley of the '17 Law Class, made its debut in a game with the Gainesville High School. The score was 12-8 in the Scrubs favor.
Iaiter, they played the Alachua team in the latter’s home town—notwithstanding which they won, 20-5.
Next, Williston succumbed to the onslaught of the Little Gators. The tune was 8-2.
At this writing there remain yet unplayed several other games on the schedule. The results, however, could be foretold if necessary; for the Scrubs have no fears for their record of “no games lost” for the season.
Good teams are the result of good leadership. So the selection of Bascom D. Barber as captain was a happy one; likewise Moody Stephens’ appointment as manager.
That the work of the Scrubs in training the Varsity was admirable, is to say the least. If it were not for a good scrub team—quien tbc?

Handicapped by lack of inter-collegiate competition, the real strength and ability of the Track Team are matters of conjecture. But with the showing at Tampa and Jacksonville it is safe to say that Florida could “deliver the goods” had she the chance to compete in this branch of inter-collegiate sport. We trust the time is not far distant when this phase of our athletics will receive its due support. The perfect climatic conditions for training should make the University of Florida supreme in the S.I.A.A. championship.
S. A. B. Wilkinson’s time of 49 8-5 seconds in the quarter-mile at Tampa sets a new record for the Southern Inter-Collegiates. This record will not be allowed due to the unofficial character of the meet. His time in the 5-mile run at Jacksonville is also a new record in Florida for that distance.
The performances of Perry, Pearson, Wilson, Koepke, and Ramsdell are worthy of merit. They showed the good “Gator” spirit in coming out and making the trip to Tampa a success.

The Phi Kappa Phi is an honor society composed of graduate and undergraduate members from all departments of American colleges and universities. Its prime object is to emphasize scholarship and character in the thought of college students, to hold fast the original purpose for which institutions of learning were founded, and to stimulate mental achievement by the prize of membership. As a secondary object, it seeks to bind the alumni more closely to their alma mater, to furnish an additional tie of college friendship, and to interest its members in the promotion of more thorough education.
Membership is restricted to senior students who have distinguished themselves in scholarship or intellectual service to their college or university, not exceeding one-fourth of any graduating class; and to alumni, faculty and honorary members who have won distinction in science, literature or education. Other honorary societies confine their membership to some particular kind of degree or course of study; the Phi Kappa Phi, by making no such restriction, aims to stand for the unity and democracy of learning.

164It was in the spring of 1914 that the students in the University, who were Woodmen, decided to organize a W. O. W. Club. The usual officers were selected and the club met every two weeks in some student’s room, the host usually serving some sort of light refreshments. At these meetings some member would give a talk or read a paper dealing with Woodcraft. In this way the students bound themselves closer together during the remainder of that year.
In the school year of 1914-15 the president of the club tried vainly to reorganize me club and finally gave it up. The same was tried this year, but as the men seem indifferent about it the matter was again dropped. However, many of the students in the University who are Woodmen have enjoyed the hospitality of Alachua Camp No. 5, located in the city. Whenever they have an entertainment or invite a prominent Woodman to speak to them in the interest of Woodcraft, or on any other occasion for celebration, they have always thought of the University Woodmen and invited them.
Thq following is a list of men in the University who are members of the Woodmen of the World:

The King of the Buzzards
By J. H. Reed
Judge Dolliver sat on his front porch in the warmth of the morning sunshine. Through the live oaks on the lawn he could see across the green fields to the grey of the piney woods beyond. From across the clearing came the shirring of the pines as they sang in the morning breeze. It was a beautiful day—a day for peace and happiness.
But Judge Dolliver heeded it not. He was watching the buzzards that circled and recircled above the Miakkas. All his life he had been a hard man, gathering whence he had not paid and reaping where he had not sown. All these years he had neither asked nor received the friendship of his nighbors.
Furthermore, he had stilled the voice of his conscience long since—so long since that he had thought himself rid of it forevermore. But now that he was growing old, and was friendless and alone save for the servants, it had returned to him out of a half forgotten past, unbidden and menacing. And, as if to bury some haunting memory, he had come to watching the buzzards.
Today they were gathering for a feast, winging in great concentric circles above the swamp. He counted them one by one as they came from the sky—small black flocks that appeared, disappeared, and reappeared from the fathomless space, eventually to take form in the distance as great turkey buzzards. Perhaps one of Jim Shirley’s cows had wandered into the bog again and perished. It was like that shiftless Shirley never to fix his fences. Perhaps—
Judge Dolliver sat up with an exclamation of incredulity. For far up in the blue his eye caught a gleam of white that flickered for a few moments and then steadied as in flight. Out in the fields a group of darkies spied the object and gathered together to watch it and whisner super-stitiously. Behind him his old servant, Jeff, stopped in the midst of mixing a toddy to look and to mutter half-forgotten incantations. For the flash of white had materialized into something no man had ever seen before. It was a white buzzard.
Something in the negroes’ whispering annoyed the Judge.
“What’s the matter with y’ll niggahs, anyhow?” he demanded, sharply.
Out of the mumbled explanations he could make out only a single phrase—“the king of the buzzards”. And, try as he would, he could learn nothing more. The negroes were too thoroly frightened.
A vague uneasiness came over the Judge. Strive as he would, he could not shake it off. It was as though he, too, had fallen under the magic spell, and he watched the great bird, fascinated, as it swung down and down, finally dropping out of sight in the Miakkas.
In the evening, when things had settled down to normal again, he returned to his question.
“Jeff.” he asked, “what is all this rot about the king of the buzzards, anyway?”
He had meant the question to be jocular, but something in the old servant’s face dispelled that mood. Again he became afraid of he knew not what.
“Do king ob de buzzards?” Old Jeff’s voice had sunk into a whisper and the light of superstition had come into his eyes. “I)e king ob de buzzards—he am de debbil's own pet. When he fin some un daid in de woods it am he job ter fin’ de killer an’ foller him—an’ follcr him—an’ Toller him—His voice ran down into a mumble again. Presently he began again in a stronger tone. “He done got er plenty ter do in dis hcah wicked worl He got so much ter do dat he cain’ never git dar on time no moah.’’
But the Judge was no longer listening. He was looking out over the blackness of the swamp with something akin to terror in his eyes. Twice he strove to speak, and could not. It was as though some memory had arisen out of the past to strike him dumb.
At last he pulled himself together; but his voice had lost its timbre somehow, and sounded dead and cold.
“You say that—that this king of buzzards searches out—searches out —murderers?”
He wondered if the negro had noticed the tremor in his voice, and cursed himself for stammering. But there was no help for it now.
Old Jeff's reply was unshaken. “Yassah—dat he do.” He looked at the Judge curiously. “Does yo' want yo’ toddy now, Jedger” he asked.
But the Judge waved him away imperiously.
Long into the night Dolliver sat huddled in his chair, thinking—thinking. It was nothing but a darky superstition, he told himself. The place was full of them. He got up, took a drink and went to bed, but not to sleep. His uneasiness grew with the morning, and the story of the white buzzard would not down.
Early in the morning he was up and around. He could not eat, and excused himself by saying that he was going hunting, although he knew there was nothing in that part of the woods to hunt. He took down his gun, and went off towards the swamp in desperation. A morbid desire had come to him to kill the white buzzard. If he might do that, he told himself, it would at least silence his conscience.
But he could not find his tormentor. Cypress knees rose from the calm water to strike him. Unseen vines swung down from the semidarkness to trip and blind him. Water snakes glided beneath his feet and slid away through the glades. Strange grey-winged insects flitted through the spectral trees and vanished into the dusk. Far away the bellowing of the ’gators sounded hollowly, like the sepulchral tolling of some vast forest-bell.
Once he thought that he was lost, and a moment of terror overtook him. But at once he emerged, wet and disheveled, to find the sun was high in the morning sky. And he crept up to his house behind hedges and fences, lest someone see him and make inquiries.
Then, when he was again seated on his front porch, in close reach of bottle and glass, a neighbor stopped in to talk to him. Judge Dolliver was in no condition to receive callers. As the team came up the sandy road, he found himself fighting down an unreasonable desire to leave by the back way. He had had too much swamp, and then too many toddies to drown the swamp, and a sort of nameless terror had come upon him.
But it was only a neighbor come to pass the time of day, and he must face him.
It seemed to Dolliver that the conversation would never end. Most of
it he did not even sense. He talked subconsciously, and drank subconsciously, with his mind afar oil" in the Miakkas, where a white speck circled and re-circled.
Dolliver brought up with a start. VVliat was the neighbor saying?
“Have you-all seen anything of er white buzzard?”
The Judge went white for an instant. What did the man know?
But the neighbor was continuing garrulously. “Hits th' biggest durn fool thing I evah heard tell on. They’s er couple of fool Yankees down heah what say they air looking fer er white buzzard. Calls theyselfs naturalists, er sumpin’ like that.” He snorted deprecatingly. “Jest as if they evah was sech er thing as er white buzzard! I nevah did see er Yankee that was all there!”
And he gathered up his hat and left, chuckling.
Judge Dolliver sat huddled up in his chair watching the retreating team. It was true, then, that superstition! The naturalists would go into the swamp in searchof the buzzard—Well, he had been into the swamp for the same purpose, and if he had failed, there was not much chance for the Yankees.
He tried to calm himself thus, but a horrible thought assailed him. In wandering through the swamp, the naturalists might stumble upon—. He did not dare imagine any further, but with a shaking hand he poured himself a drink. The Miakka never gave up its secrets, he told himself, over and over again. The Miakka never gave up its secrets. It had been a constant reassurance to him in days long by, but it was beginning to fail him now. The white buzzard had somehow shaken his faith in things natural, and he did not know where to turn.
That night he did not even try to sleep. The noises of the swamp were magnified in his ears beyond all proportions. The frogs sang incessantly. The alligators boomed in an evil chorus. Once or twice a heron wailed through the darkness, and Dolliver cowered under the bed-clothes. It was as if the whole swamp had raised its voice in protest—in a terrible arraignment. And then when he could stand it no longer, it was morning.
With the light some of his courage came back. He took his gun and went down to the swamp again; but he did not dare to enter it. He took pot shots at the buzzards from its edge, and swore angrily because he could not hit them from the distance. Weary and discouraged he slunk back to the house. Then the telephone bell rang, and he started guiltily.
For a long time, he could not get up enoucrh courage to answer it. The wee small voice rose and rose insistently. If he did not answer it, some of the sen'ants would. So he took down the receiver.
Was this Dolliver’s?
It was the sheriff. A body had been found by the naturalists in the swamp, and they were bringing it up to his place for the post-mortem. The worst had happened!
For an instant Dolliver stood as if stricken. He dropped the receiver, and started for the door. But where could he flee? There was only the Miakka and he did not dare go into that. It would be suicide.
He took several drinks, which gave him a false feeling of security. Flight would be a confession. He would stay and bluff it out. Why, it was twenty years ago that he had lured that man into the Miakka and
killed him. The sheriff could never prove that the man had been murdered, and if he could, how could it Ik? traced to him? How could they know? It was impossible. So he pulled himself together after a little, and set the house in order.
When the little cortege came into sight down the dusty road, Dolliver had another panic. He could yet escape through the back door. And yet he was sure that he could put on a bold front. For some moments he paused in indecision. And then it was too late. The sheriff was at the door.
They brought the body, shrouded in a blanket, into the front parlor. In truth, there was nothing left but a few bones, and a ring by which it might some time Ik? identified; but Dolliver did not enter the room. He busied himself with the liquid refreshments with a shaking hand, and answered questions but half-heartedly. He was striving vainly to pull himself together.
“Poor devil must have got lost in the swamp,” remarked one of the naturalists.
“Yes,” replied the sheriff. “We-all jest brung him in ter give him a Christian burial.” He squinted at the glass of refreshment handed him. “I guess we don't need ter hold no post-mortem, do we, boys?” he added; “there ain’t no way o’ telling how he died, no how.”
With a start Dolliver regained his courage. It was all right, after all. He even joked a little about the quality of his drinks.
It was a faint attempt, and soon extinguished.
Suddenly one of the men turned to the window with an exclamation. High above the house a white s|K?ck swung down and down in great concentric circles. It was the white buzzard!
With a cry, Dolliver fell upon his knees before the remains of his victim.
“I did it!” he sobbed. “Cod be merciful to me—a murderer!”
And while he was sobbing out his confession, the white buzzard swung down and down, and as it came its whiteness seemed to fade and grow peculiarly dingy before their eyes.
• •• •
The naturalists were disappointed, for it was only a common buzzard which some practical joker had painted with whitewash.

188people were quite enthusiastic over the performance and promised next time to overflow the Casino.
In St. Petersburg the people there again demonstrated their hospitality by taking into their homes members of the troupe. After the performance that night the stage was cleared and everyone enjoyed the dance that followed. Early the next morning a weary bunch boarded the train for Fruitland Park, on the last leg of the trip.
There the troupe was joined by Ed Wellington, Premier Comedian, who, owing to difficulties in the ice business, was unable to assist the Minstrel in the first pail of the trip. The show went off well, for a tired troupe, which, after fighting a fire, left for Gainesville. A glance at the program tells the tale.

This year the Glee Club, while still a separate organization, combined with the Greater Minstrels in order that it might take the road at the same time.
Under the able direction of George DuRell Hamilton as president, and Eli Futch as manager, together with a promising bunch of voices, the Glee Club rapidly attained its old form and was intending to make its own regular concert tour. However, since two separate University teams on the same itinerary would have proved impracticable, it was thought best to combine as above mentioned.
In the Minstrel second part the Glee Club rendered "0 Belle Nuit,” from Tales of Hoffman and "Carmena,” by Wilson. Miss Connor, the new director, is responsible for the attainment reached and splendid quality of music which the Glee Club offered. She also acted as accompanist.

The Campus Pines at Night
Ye landmarks lofty, towering towards the stars, Ye guardians watching o’er a world asleep,
What would I give to know the thoughts ye think So secretly?
The tales that ye could tell, if ye but would,
Of haughty Spaniard, or of Seminole
Who walked beneath the moon with her he loved,
And plighted troth with ye alone to see!
But ye will not.
Your voice, now, as the fragrant summer’s breeze Wanders from broad Atlantic, or the Gulf,
Is tender as a mother’s lullaby To sleeping babe.
But when the wintry messengers of the north Swept down to sear you with their icy breath,
I’ve heard ye speak a firmer, stronger note,
A self-reliant note of grim defiance,
Or was ’t contempt?
I wonder; can it l e that ye arc here To shame me with your gentle tenderness That yet is strong, whene’er the need shall rise, As twisted steel?
Or are ye fingers, pointing to the sky,
To teach that growing-upwards is the way To perfect strength: and that to be upright Is to secure one’s self from every stress?

Special attention to University Students
Success is like the cat with nine lives. It never says die.
Success means brains. Brains are like fresh country butter, there is some demand.
Success doesn’t consist in never making blunders, but in never making the same blunder twice.
Success means to keep your eyes off your toes, and set your face toward the goal.
Success isn’t a ladder that’s hard to climb, if you don’t go to sleep and let some more worthy man’ shake you loose.
Success when she knocks once skins her knuckles and doesn’t repeat the call. Take advantage of your opportunities.
From the neck down a man is worth about $1.50 per day; from the neck up your worth is proved by the advantage you take of vour opportunities.
To grab time by the forelock and hang his scalp to your belt, and you will be the horns of the cow and not the tail. Leadership spells success.
