History of the Law Class of 1912 UK Junior U r class has come hut nut truin'. We came into existence alxmt the twenty-first ihiy of Septemlx-r. 19111. ami while we are still rather youiur. we have made a lot of history during the eight short months we have Im-vii together, in this brief sketch it is nnmss'ssary as well as inex| cdiciil to attempt to ntoimt in detail all the events which go to make up this history, and Is-sides a goodly part of it is written in the form of circles in certain class-lxxiks to which the historian has not a ready access. 'Pile elnnt is composed of men ranging in age from eigli-t« « ii to fifty, and coming from four states: Georgia. Alabama. Florida, and Kentucky. We are remarkable in that we have among our munlier a representative from the faculty of the I’niversity and also one of the lemling uiinisteiN of Athens. Our clasw is not perfect, as it is as ditlictil! fur a Law class to attain perfection as it is for anyone else. However, it may Im- truthfully said that we possess all the virtue as well as all the faults that arc found in a college. Among our numlier some are brilliant, while with others the intellectual lamp shines with a dimmer light, some are what might lx- termed hard-working students, while others find plenty of time for “loafing": some attend class-es very regularly, while others attend occasionally. We have all attended classes enough and doth1 work enough. however, to k s-p from getting “fired." and f«-el that we are able to face the responsibility and uphold the dignity of the Senior class of next year. While here we have In-come acquainted with such men as Mr. lilackstone. -Imlgc Lawson, .fudge Cooley, and many other famous law writers, all of whom have endeared themselves to our memory ). Such expressions as i ni finil « r alium faril wr si. trespass nit initio, ami absi ui injuria have put us in tile attitude of saying with some finding, “damn the whole business." The real meaning of these maxims will doubtless dawn upon ns some of these days, and when they do. to use words some of us have heard Ix'forc. "it will blow off the tops of our heads." Perhaps we all rememl or the loginning if not the end of our banquet. For the benefit of any who may have only a hazy recollection of the whole affair we will say that said banquet Itcgan on the first day of April, nlxuit nine o'clock I'. M.. and ended the same night. In dosing this short account, it is only necessary to say that the greater part of our history is yet to lx made, and of course yet to lx- written. We have within our ranks men whom the writer of state history will have (■ notice. This may lx in the nature of a prophecy, hut in the future, watch the Law class of 1!»12. lllSTOntAN'.

willows ami orphans of dirty dollars: and thoy sought com-fori by drowning their sorrows in shallow nips.” The devil Menus to lake s| ccinl intmwt in tolling about a hum'll of crooks. As wo advance on tlioni. deep down in a pit. into which hot rosin is conducted and out of which issue direful groans and revengeful oaths, one can hear a voice which sounds familiar: ” I 'll make a fuss for two hits. That’s fair enough.” “Why. that is John Sibley and his Imiv. Uols'i’t .lenkins.” Sihiey was the victim of circumstances. lie east his lot with a had crew. Nenrhv stand “Skinnie" Alsbrook—called “Nettles” in Spartanlnirg and old “S|M»t" Strickland. These laiys reprcsciil the lludwoiser (’liih.

When lie was in college he received notice from the executor of his father’s will that it would he necessary for him to come home and do some work on the farm for then- was a condition precedent to the estate, that lie should work six months on the laud lieforc he look it over. The only reason the testator did not make it nine months was. lie had too milch respect for the land. ••Skinnie” was an ordinary sort of fellow until he cairn' to college and got to going with Hob Jenkins. After that lie got to Ik a s|Miii. Vet. he was a jolly good fellow. His business at college was unascertained. At one time lie looked old Spot squarely in the eye and said: ”lt will cost you one dollar to see what I have. I’ve got von limit.’’ "Spot.” you know, was the doubting Chancellor. At this time a long train of men came hv holding their heads high, assuming a considerable degree of dignity. We sis- first. Tom .Marshall, then (iraliam Wright. Waller .Man-gum. Jim Palmer and "Sunny Jim” laiyd. The devil then turns and says. “I have not admitted these men absolutely. Im-vuiikc I have no need of them. They have no recommendations and display little talent. They are not fit for this place, hut tlieie is no other. Tom .Marshall had but one redeeming feature, that is. he was conversant with sailor brogue: Craham Wright was serviceable to the extent that lie bought a pool room: Jim I’almer furnished t« stimonv in a case and failed to charge a double fee; ”Sunny dim” Loyd combined magnanimity with under-handed art : but Mr. .Minimum—oil. my—lie figured so prom in -ii 11 y in poli. ties tIml lit- always rmi. ami the runny port almtil it is. he never won; thru. too.

"Yes. that is just wlml I was fixing to tell you. lie auul Unit fellow .liiu Hroaeli. came here with tin best emlorsenu’iHs I Imve seen. Kewis. you know, whs saturated with rommerrhilisin.

"And Jim Hroaeli. how ulMiut him?” "lie is ;i queer fellow, lie was nlwnys attempting something. Imt never neeomplislted anything, in other words, he was not on the jnh. lie passed hv me this morning and I hailed him with "Hello there. Jim Broach.” He looked at me a moment, made a characteristic shrug of the shoulders and sai«l. "Why. I don’t think I've met you. What is your name?” This makes his presence very uiulesirahle. He told me that the Clmneellor was the proper man to issue a distress warrant. I don’t like this man. I think he ought to go to the little farm of Whilenen on the Manor of Dale." "Did you find anything for those other fellows: Kd Carter. Hill (iiguilliat. Charlie Adams. Howell Itrooke and Cicero Dohlis to do?" "Y« s. Kd and Hill ‘shot billiards on a |m oI table.'something alisolulely niipardonahle. as Jim Hroaeh will tell you.” "Those other men. Howell Hrook. Charlie Adams, and Cicero Marion Dohlis. what an you doing with them ?" "They tried to set the woods on tin in Rabun county, v I must give them tin White Veil Degree.” Kverynne has some concept of hell. The law class of Nineteen Hleven ought to lie able to speak authoritatively on this theme. If mv dream comes true certainly this class will some time Ik nhje to speak with authority.
