Death. l e not proud, though some hare railed thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou are not so:
For those u hom thou tfurthest thou dost overthrow
Die not. poor Death: nor yet const thou hill me.
From rest and sleep, which but thy picture be.
Much pleasure: then from thee much more must flow:
And soonest our best men with thee do go
Rest of their lames and souls delivery:
Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings anil desperate men.
And dost with poison, rear, and sickness dwell
And better than thy stroke. Why duel lest thou then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And death shall be no more: Death thou, shall die.

It was with great sorrow' and a sense of personal loss that the stu dents of the University learned of the death of their president Dr. Albert Alexander MurphreC December 20, 1927. He w'as a man of national prominence, as is proven by his presi denev of the National Association of State College Presidents, yet he was also the personal friend of his stu dents and faculty. He was a man with the vision to see into and prepare for the future, yet he was equally capable of handling the many minor details connected with the management of an University. So, as an expression of a small part of our admiration and es teem, the student body lovingly dedi cate this, the nineteenth volume of the Seminole, to the Memory of Dr. Albert Alexander Murphree.

The state suffered an almost irreparable loss in the death of Owen Francis Burger, D.Sc., on Janu ary 26, 1925. Dr. Burger, who was plant patholo gist of the florida Agricultural Kxperiment Sta« tion and the State Plant Board, had greatly bet tered the agricultural conditions of the state, and he -was conducting experiments which would have improved them still more. He was a deeply rcli gious man and one greatly liked and admired by all who came into contact with him.
'William Wiley Hollingsworth, Ph.D., was a man of tolerance, deep sympathy, and extreme generosity. Dr. Hollingsworth had been an in structor at the University since 1925, his especial field being local and state politics. His two hob bies, he often declared, were political science and baseball, and he was a close student of both. He was exceptionally popular with his students and his death on January 1, 1925 came to them as a great shock.
