HON. J. S. SEXTON
Sketch of Hon. S. Sexionis Lie
The Sexton family is of Irish extraction, and Maurice Lenihan, who compiled
and edited the history of Limerick. Ireland, in 1886, says of this family that it
constituted one of the chief historic families of Limerick.
Hon. J. S. Sexton was born in Copiah County, Miss., November 2, 1854. In
speaking of his parents. he says: "I remember very little about my father, who died
when I was quite young, but my mother was a woman of remarkable intellect and
great force of character." lYhen his father died, the family was living in Crystal
Springs, Miss.. and l1is mother concluded that it would be better for the children.
of whom there were five in number. all boys. to move to a small farm, which had
been left them by their father. where they would be freed from the temptations of
town life and have a better opportunity to make a livelihood. It was on this farm
that Mr. Sexton was reared.
He attended a number of old-field schools of the country when he was a child,
but they were so utterly inefficient that he made but little progress in them, and
but for his mother's assistance at home. he would not have accomplished anything.
At that time the opportunity to obtain educational advantages in Copiah County
amounted to almost nothing. but it was Mr. Sexton's rare good fortune, a little later
on in life, to attend a country school taught by one George Morrison, an Irishman,
who though a very peculiar and erratic individual, was by far the most scholarly man
in that section of the country. He attended this school for several years, during
part of which time he walked four miles to school, and it was here that he obtained
his first real educational advantages. Of this teacher Mr. Sexton has written:
"He was a profound scholar and a prodigious worker, and I learned from him the
advantages to be obtained from self-reliance and earnest effort. He was not only
my teacher, but he was my companion and friend."
XVhen little less than eighteen years of age. Mr. Sexton entered the University
of Mississippi, but his purse and health both failed, and he was never graduated.
His standing here was of the highest character, as the records of this institution show.
After leaving the University he taught a country school for three years, during which
time he studied law under the direction of Hon. Tim E. Cooper, then living at
Hazlehurst, but now of Jackson, Miss., and was admitted to the bar of Copiah
County in 1880, since which time he has been most actively and earnestly engaged
in his profession, and has enjoyed almost as varied and extensive practice as any
lawyer in the State. ranging from the Supreme Vourt of the United States to the
lowest courts in the State, and covering almost every phase of law.
He was elected as a delegate from the State at large to the Constitutional
Convention of 1890, and though he was the youngest member of that convention on
the delegation from the State at large, he was placed on the Judiciary Committee,
which was headed by Hon. lViley P. Harris, who was probably the ablest lawyer
whom the State ever produced, and he was associated on that committee with many
others of the ablest lawyers of the State.
At its session in Meridian in the year 1909, he was elected president of the Bar
Association of the State of Mississippi without a dissenting vote. During his
incumbency of the office he corresponded with every lawyer in the State who did
not belong to the Association, calling his attention to the necessity of elevating the
profession and the advantages to be gained by becoming a member of the Association,
the result of which was that the membership of the Association was nearly doubled
during his official connection therewith.
Mr. Sexton has been actively identified with school work since his majority. He
was a trustee of YVhitworth Female College and of Millsaps College for years, and
has been president of the Board of Trustees of the Hazlehurst High School for the
last twenty years. VVhen he learned that it was the purpose of the Governor of the
State to appoint him as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Higher Educational
Institutions of the State, thinking it would be impossible for him to make the
sacrifice and give the time necessary to properly fill this important position, he went
to the Governor and asked him not to make the nomination, but after he was
nominated, notwithstanding this protest, upon reflection, considering that it was the
best opportunity which had ever been presented to him to render the State a
substantial service, he accepted the place. He was then unanimously elected president
of the Board. Since his connection with the same he has been doing all in his
power to acquaint himself with the general conditions existing at each of the institu--
tions and also the necessities of the situation. To that end, he has gotten in touch
with nearly all of the leading educational institutions of the country, and especially
those of the Southern States. "It is my purpose," he has said, "to do everything in
my power to elevate the educational standards of the institutions committed to the
charge of the Board of Trustees and to increase their efficiency in every possible
respect. The necessity for unifying the educational interests of the State and con-
tinuing the same in a comprehensive business way cannot be over-estimated by
Mississippians, and to make this effort a success challenges my deepest interest, and
shall have the benefit of my best endeavor."
The Grealer University
BOUT sixty-six years ago the wise men of the State of Mississippi decided to
establish an institution. which they hoped would stand for the highest and
best in life, and make of its young men and women citizens for the great to-morrow.
That they planned wisely and well, the brilliant record of the University in the past,
the high standard of schol-
arship maintained, and the
places of trust and honor
her graduates fill, bear
From a very small be-
ginning, the University has
grown until today she is one
I of the leading universities
in the South. Her faculty, always a brilliant one, noted for culture and scholarship,
has also grown both in numbers and fame, until today we have just cause to take pride
in their recognized standing in the educational world.
When we look back and consider the dark days just after the war, and the hard
struggle we had to undergo, and see how OUR UNIVERSITY rose up out of the
chaos of those dreary days, to be the guiding star of a "Younger Mississippi," holding
fast to the grand ideals of the past, we can discover the cause of her greatness. If
some of her noble sons who have passed beyond the great river were permitted to
return and behold their Alma Mater of today. and see the plans for the future, they
would indeed rejoice.
Many new buildings have been added to the University in the last few years,
among them being a new dormitory. known as Gordon Hall, one of the finest, if not
the finest, building of its kind in the entire South. Several new homes for the
professors have been erected, and there is now in the course of construction a
magnificent new library, which will add much to the welfare of the University.
lVhile all phases of our college life seem to be flourishing, we wish to call especial
attention to the progress that is being made in the literary societies and the Debating
Council and the Students' Congress, that have this year been added to our college
activities, and which will be important factors in the building of the Greater Univer-
sity. The literary societies have always been an important factor in our college life,
but they are doing more and more to prepare men and women for the great struggle
ll'e believe that the Chair of Oratory de-
serves great credit for the introduction into the
student life of a Debating Council and a Stu-
dents' Congress. Through these two means
great good can and will be accomplished, as the
young men will be trained to discuss and reason
over the great questions that confront the race.
It is with pride that we look back into the
hsitory of the University. lVe note her many
grand deeds. lVe have seen her sons and daugh-
ters take their places in the forefront ranks of
life, being called to fill positions of the highest

honor and trust. VVhile we are proud of her past, rich in sweet memories as it may
he, we are looking forward with a prophetic vision to her great and glorious future.
The Greater University
of tomorrow is assured by
the great University of to-
day. In that Greater Uni-
versity there will be men
who will stand for every-
thing that is good., upright
and honorable. Men who
will always put the Univer-
- -W-W sity FIRST in their minds
and hearts. In it will men be trained to guide the grand old ship of state over the
Stormy waters through which it must always pass, and bring it to a haven of safety.
The Greater University
will be a factor and a potent
force in every phase of the
life of our great State, al-
ways working for its better-
ment and upbuilding. It

IION. JAMES GORDON
James Gordon, Democrat, of Okolona, was born on a
farm in Monroe County, Mississippi, Deccmlter 6, 18315.
His father, Robert Gordon, a Scotchnian, married his
mother in Cotton Gin Port, on the '1'omhiglu'c ltiver. Slu-
was Mary E. 1Valton, born in Amelia County, Virginia,
and moved with her parents to the Chickasaw Terri-
tory when she was quite young. Robert Gordon was a
'arge planter and settled in Pontotoc County when thc
Chickasaw land sales were located there, founding the
city of Aberdeen. James Gordon was an only son. lic
grew up in Pontotoc, attended school in Holly Springs
several years at St. Thomas Hall, later entered La-
Grange College, Alabama, and at the beginning of his
Sophomore year went to the University of Mississippi,
graduating in the class of 1955. He married Miss Caro-
lina Virginia XViley, daughter of a planter residing near
Oxford. Her mother was a sister of Hon. Jacob Thomp-
son, who was Secretary of the Interior in President
Buchanan's Cabinet. Col. Gordon has a daughter, Mrs.
Annie G. Barrow. born in 1856, and a son, Robert
James, born in 1977. His wife died in February, 1903.
In April, 1901, he married Miss Ella N. Neilson, of
Oxford, Miss. He was elected to represent Pontotoc
County in the Legislature of 1857. He located in Oko-
Church, a Mason, a trustee of the Mississippi University,
and has been a writer for quite a number of journals
and magazines, and is the author of a book of poems en-
titled "'1'he Old Plantation" and other poems. XVhen
the war came on he equipped a company of cavalry and
served twelve months with the Jeff Davis Legion under
Gen. J. E. B. Stuart in Virginia. He then raised a regi-
ment known as the Second Mississippi Cavalry, and was
attached to the brigade commanded by Gen. Frank C.
Armstrong, fought under Major Generals Price, Yan
Dorn, YVilliam H. Jackson and Forrest. He was sent to
Europe in the summer of 1861 by the Confederate gov-
ernment on a private mission, and was captured on his
return in January, 1865, in the harbor at lVilmington,
N. C., his ship having entered the harbor in the night,
not knowing Fort Fisher had fallen.
He escaped on the 22d of February and fled to Can-
ada, where he was under suspicion of being in the con-
spiracy with Booth in the assassination of President Lin-
coln. 1Vith the assistance of friends he was enabled to
go to New York and surrender to Gen. Dix, who was
satisfied of his entire innocence, and gave him a passport
to his home. He was disfranchised for ten years on
account of his having served in the Legislature in 1857.
He also served in the Legislature of Mississippi in 1878
and 1886, also in the State Senate in 1901- and 1906.
He was appointed December 27, 1909, by Gov. Noel to
fill a vacancy in the United States Senate caused by the
death of Hon. A. J. McLaurin.-Taken from Congres-
sional Directory, Simly-first Congress. Sw-and Session.

Hon. James Adolphus Glenn was born near Starkville,
September 6, 1846. His parents came to Mississippi
from Fairfield, S. C., in the year 1837. Mr. Glenn began
his education in a country school. XVhen he reached his
tenth year he entered the male academy at Starkville,
where he pursued his studies until the winter of 1863,
when he volunteered in Company I, of the Sixth Missis-
sippi Regiment, Forrest's Cavalry. He fought through
every battle and skirmish of active cavalry campaigning
that followed the fall of Vicksburg. Some time after
his return home he entered Erskine College, Due XVest,
S. C., where he remained until 1868.
Mr. Glenn is a model local trustee for an agricultural
college, thoroughly conversant as he is with the needs
of the Mississippi farm, with the work of the Agricul-
tural Department of the A. N M. College, and with the
experiments going: on at the United States Experiment
Station connect.-cl with the College.

Capt. Wainwright was born in Green County, Missis-
sippi, November 30, 1851. He was the youngest son of
William D. and Mary A. XVainwright. He secured his
preliminary training in the common schools of the State
and at private boarding schools, subsequently entering
a well-conducted private academy having a high curricu-
lum. .Xt the close of his academic course he entered
the employ of the Stonewall Cotton Mills. His rapid
promotion in this industry gave promise of his future
success. As the president and treasurer of these mills
he has fully demonstrated the practicability of manufact-
uring the great staple at home. V'hen the mills at
Selma, Ala., Yazoo City, and later at Kosciusko, Miss.,
had ceased to pay expenses, it was the wish of Capt.
XVainwright that put the mills again into operation.
These examples of successful milling will be of untold
value to our State and to our people individually.
M'e are sure that he will do great good for the State
HOB. GLORCJE A. MCILHENNY.
Mr. George A. Mcllhenny was born of Irish parent-
age in Wilmington, N. C., in 1859, and with his parents
came to Montgomery, Ala., during the VVar between the
States. At the age of thirteen he entered Oxford Col-
lege, Oxford, Ala., and having finished his academic
course. he studied dentistry in the Philadelphia Dental
College, and began practice in 1878. He came to Hills-
boro, Miss., in 1881, and engaged in both farming and
dentistry until 1900, when he left the farm and gave
all his time to office practice in Forest. In 1895 he
was elected to the State Senate and served one term.
He is still active in public affairs, particularly in the
cause of education. He is a trustee of the Forest schools
and President of the Trustees' Association of Scott
County. In 1906 he was appointed by Gov. Vardaman
a trustee of the I., I. 8: C., and on the creation of the
single Board of Trustees for the higher institutions of
learning he was appointed by Gov. E. F. Noel a mem-
ber of the uniform board for the short term.

HON. F. CLARK HOLMES
F. Clark Holmes was born in DeSoto county, Mississippi, on December 5, 1869, and spent
his boyhood in that favored section of the State. He entered the University of Mississippi
in the fall of 1886 and remained there for a period of four years, graduating with the
degree of B.S. XVhile in the University, Mr. Holmes was noted for his diligent work in his
classes, and after his graduation was appointed assistant instructor in chemistry, which
position he hlled for the ensuing two years while taking his law degree. In 1892 Mr. Holmes
received his degree of LL.B. and immediately entered upon the practice of his profession.
Mr. Holmes has prospered in his profession and has received many tokens of esteem
from his fellow citizens of his home town. He was first appointed Trustee of the University
of Mississippi under Governor Vardaman's administration, and as a mark of appreciation
and recognition of his services was reappointed by Governor Noel on the old Board of
Trustees of the University. At the last meeting of the Legislature with the General Board
of Trustees for the higher educational institutions, Mr. Holmes was appointed as a member
of this Board.
He has always served in all positions with honor to himself and to the best interests
of those for whose welfare he was responsible.
HON. ISAAC C. ENOCHS.
Probably no citizen of the State has given more intelligent study and more intense
thought to Alississippfs educational conditions and needs than has Hon. I. C. lunochs. For
nearly two decades Mr. lznochs has been a member of the Board of luducation of the Jackson
public schools, and in this position he has given close attention to the questions of secondary
education, indeed, the same careful and conscientious thought has marked his conduct as a
Trustee that has always characterized his administration of large business affairs. For
twelve years he served as a member of the Board of Trustees of Millsaps College, and
exerted a strong infh.ence in the formative period of this institution's history. Over the
protest of all who were interested in the development of this great institution, Mr. lunochs
resigned as Trustee in order that he might continue to serve the public school interest or
Jackson. For a numlzer of years he was a member of the 1Vhitworth College Board, and
in this position he studied carefully the many educational questions involved in the higher
education of women. Surely, his broad and varied experience peculiarly fitted him for
membership on the Uniform Board. Governor Noel, recognizing his superior qualifications
for this important Board, urged him to accept the appointment. His acceptance is a distinct
service to the State.
Mr. linochs is a native Mississippian, born in Copiah county in 1852, he was the eldest
of nine brothers and one sister. Lett in charge of a plantation and home at the age of nine
years while his father answered the conntry's call to fight the battles of the civil war. hc
was denied school advantages.
But his mother belonged to that heroic band of South-
ern women who did all things well, and under her in-
struction he mastered the elementary subjects of the
school course. His ambition was to practice law, but
the close of the war found his father's property, in
connnon with other Southern planters, in wreck and
ruin, and, perforce, young l'Inoch's time, thought and
attention nu.st lie given to bring order out of chaos
on the plantation.
In 1879 Mr. Iinochs was married to Miss Margaret
liliza Catchings. In his interesting and cultured family
are four daughters and one son. In 1888 he moved to
Jackson, and has since lzeen a potent factor in all that
has contributed to the remarkable growth of the capital
city-civic righteousness, educational progress and in-
Mississippi is most fortunate in the service of a citizen
so well equipped to aid in the administration of all her

"We came, we saw, we conquered." This is tl1e history of the Class of 1911
in a nutshell. In the fall of 1907 we came from the realms of Prepdom to take our
places in the U. of M. army. and for four long years to battle with obstacles which
were to develop us physically, mentally and morally.
In our first year's siege we won the name of "brave', when we dared to refuse
to wear the green caps which the upper classmen tried to impose on us as an emblem

positions in the leading ranks in the U. of M. army.
VVe came and we saw. Our class has not been o11e to grope blindly along. YVe
have witnessed the building and dedication of Gordon Hall and the new library.
lVe have seen the literary societies grown and the organization of the Students'
Congress among themg and for two years we saw Mississippi as victor in the State
oratorical contest. We have viewed battles on the athletic field and sent home
conquered foes. And for the first time in the history of the institution, the girls
have an athletic coach. XVe are not inclined to keep merely to the beaten paths.
VVe have brought about many changes. one of which was the publication of Ole Miss
by the student body.
Now, since we have come, seen and conquered, we have almost ended our con
test, to realize that we have merely 1-econnoitered the territoryg and, like those spies
of the Bible stories, have only been allowed to view the promised land, but We hope
that our successors, imbued with our spirit. may carry to fruition our vain dreams
of "what might have been." HISTORIAN.

unior Class History
Hooray for the Juniors! The brilliant, the exceptional, the marvelous Juniors!
Really. I should truthfully say that we are the rrolzrlerful Juniors, if I had never
heard the old saw: "That whosoever tooteth not l1is own little horn, the same little
horn is not tootedf' lVe feel our superiority over the green Freshmen and the irre-
sponsible. overwise Sophomores. and why should we not? Are we not Juniors, and
in a few short months-alas. only too short-will have stepped over the gulf of
exams., there to find ourselves the lordly Seniors?
lVe have kept up our record. and have been all that any one could expect of usg
we have no qualms of conscience, for we have faithfully performed our duty in all
things. On all occasions we have protected and helped along the ignorant Freshmeng
have been the advisors and counsellors of the beloved Sophomores, and have been
a reference book of information to the enviable Seniors.
lVe were so zealous to be helpful to the other classes on class organization day
that we hardly took time to elect our own officers. In order to save time. each officer
was elected by acclamation, and to make sure that we were electing faithful officers
in spite of the hurry. as many of the former officers as possible were elected. Con-
sequently. our new president, who had been the president of the Freshman class.
and who had had the interests of that class very much at heart, in reading the names
ef the officers just elected, said: "By acclamation. the following have been elected
officers of the lfreslnnan elassf' XVhat a howl of indignation and wounded pride
arose! The assembly hastily dispersed amid the congratulations and beaming smiles
of the eo-eds. each of whom had received an office, and took its way to thc Chapel,
gaining momentum and inspiration on the way.
ive have bright prospects and are forming great plans for the future. Some of
us will aehieve fame if fortune smiles on us. But whether we shall be great or not.
the thought of the future does not bother us. lVe are happy now, and that is all we
ask for. YVC are ligllt-l1e:1rted and cure-free Juniors. :incl :is such we have enjoyed
:md are enjoying our Junior year to the fullest extent. Next year. when we have
put on our Senior dignity, have grown sedate and unapprozxehahle, :incl shall lmve
taken up a systematic study of propriety and the :xrt of eonnnrxncling :xhjeet respect
and obedience, we shall think more about our careers. Until then, we feel that we
can play with the Sophs and Freshies and have a general good timefwith :x loud
and long hurrah for the Class of IQIQ. H1s'ronI,xN.

Sophomore H isiory
The greenest lot of Freshmen ever seen assembled at the first of' last year for
organization. After severe struggles with the upper classmen. we finally succeeded
in electing officers and getting acquainted. The remainder of the session rolled lmy
much as the sessions do, except the Frcshies made more improvement than any
preceding class, won all the laurels from the several departments that they could
conveniently carry, and stored up valuable material for the present year. Quite a
number of our class fell by the wayside, but a goodly proportion have braved the
trials of another siege of grinding, and the terrors of other exams. lVe are bidding
fair to make U. of M. famous with our illustrious deeds. Our records and achieve-
ments make even the stately Senior wonder. Xhvitll our enthusiastic president, Doxey,
at the throttle, and a good smooth track ahead, we will this year do even more than
our splendid examples of the years '11 and ,IQ-who were once Sophomores.

Freshman Class History
September 21st, 1910. the members of the Freshmen Class boarded the good
ship Hope and sailed forth to the land "University" At port Oxford, where we
landed, a great mass of animals met us, and their cries, yells and shrieks were awful
to hear. These things wore little hats on the side of their heads, their trousers rolled
up several feet, bright colored socks and smoked cigarettes. They were a kind of
half naturalized citizens from our own country.
From the port we went to the campus. lVe slept little that night, for those
aforesaid animals annoyed us in lllO1'C ways than one.
Next morning we went to the Lyceum, and there we found more animals. One
was called Chancellor. He was a species all to himself, and seemed to be boss.
Another animal, the only one of his kind also, was Vice-Chancellor, and he was a
cross between the Chancellor and the species which were known as Profs. These
Profs were all sizes and shapes. but all were savage, severe and sour-looking, and
wore 'specksf' They told us we must take a degree of naturalization and work to
become like them. Many of us objected to this arrangement. but it seemed to be the
only thing to do. Then we saw miles and miles of red tape that had to be rolled up
by each one of us. This was called matriculation. Most of us got ours rolled up in a
few days, and then we- had to "study." Studying meant to take a book and look
at it hard for two hours. Then you had to go to class to bust on what you had just
studied. Dr. Riley asked why was a tadpole when it was in the Paleolithic sea. Mr.
Spann and Mr. Torrey made us prove xg-l-yi equals a straight line. "Grinnie"
asked equally foolish questions in English, and made us write themes on "Casey
Jones," "Come Into the Garden of Roses," for I am "Alabama Bound." YVe did
very well in our studies, but those upper classmen began to bother us considerably, so
October the 18th we organized to defend ourselves. VVe collected in Chapel. but
to no avail. for the animals stormed us and were very cruel to us. Soon after, how-
ever. we met again and "Klein" acted as Chairman. After exhausting himself
mentally and physically Cnot hard to doj, he brought the house to order. Nomina-
tions 'for president were then in order, and Mr. Hill nominated himself. He made a
brilliant speech from the rostrum, and all were so cntranced that when he announced
himself President at the conclusion. every one accepted it without question. The
other officers were elected amid much confusion and noise. but all ended quietly and
we went to om' rooms for quiet refiecticn and wonder how we would live through it
all. XVe are all looking forward with much anticipation to the great time when the
last terrible exam. will be passed and we enter into the realm of the Sophomore.

History of the Senior Law Class
I do not profess to be either a Macaulay or a Carlyle, but I ought to be, if I am
not, able to write a short story of a class of which I have been a member for the past
On September 17th, 1909, there blew into the University about forty bright,
young, healthy Mississippians, seeking a legal education. All of those who were not
VVebsters and Calhouns, in their own estimation, were hunting for the gravy train of
school, and this is the main incentive that created such a numerous class. The desires
of those gravy train Nimrods were satisfied as each and every one jointly and
severally were transferred safely into the stormy zone of Senior law.
Around the Senior year is where the real destiny of this class was shaped, and
where the battles were fought and won. Those Junior law students who entered
this class with high ambitions, lofty aspirations and great expectancies, foresaw only
gentle zephyrs analagous to the breezy breaths of criminal law, and did not predict
that their broad course would be impeded by breakers of equity and squalls of torts.
This year has subjected the survivors of those hurricanes and breakers to the
greatest privations and hardships, and those true and tried Warriors who did not
emerge from the chaos of exams mentals wrecks, lost so much flesh that it became
necessary after each exam. to indulge a couple of weeks in recreation and convales-
The first term of the Senior year transformed lVebsters into soda jerkers and
Calhouns into plow hands, the second term analyzed the remaining minds who aspired
to that goal, in order to see if their minds were thoroughly saturated with the myriads
of rules and the innumerable exceptions. Yet it is sad to relate that Uncle -1
found it necessary to write upon divers gentlemen's papers the famous maxim:
"Merle, Mene, Tekel Upharsinf'
All of those law students who get their diplomas will no doubt in the future
look back upon this year as the most worthy of their college career. They will
appreciate their diplomas ten-fold times more than they would if their course had
been sop, for we all admit the truthful assertion that those things are loved more
which are hardest to obtain, and it is an admitted fact that a diploma from the Law
Department of the University of Mississippi is a symbol of hard study and prima
facie evidence of a thorough mind.
I cannot better the words of Shakespeare, who said:
"Each is so gentle, and the elements
So mixid in him, that nature might stand up
And say to all the world, 'This is a man.' "
Stale of Mississippi
On account of future political aspirations, the defendants' names in this case
are not disclosed. They also have conscientious scruples against notice to their
parents, whose sons in their truthful estimation are fighting "John Barleycornf'
This case is appealed from the Circuit Court of the University, where the
defendants were convicted and duly sentenced to twenty days in prison, from which
verdict they appeal to this court. The facts are stated in the decision.
Justice Johnston, S. M., renders the decision of the court.
The defendants, the Unlucky Three, did on or about the 20th day of November,
A. D. 1911, within five miles of the State University, drink to excess one quart of
spirituous, vinous, malt and intoxicating liquor, viz., California port wine "eau de
vie," against the peace and dignity of the State of Mississippi, contrary to and
abusve of the laws of human constitutions.
This case appears to be an anomaly to English jurisprudence, as well as to all
cases decided by the civil law, therefore the court hesitates in handing it down, and
does so with great reluctancy.
For this crime you were justly convicted, you deny not that you drank the
detestable fluid, you deny not that you entered the private sanctity of an honor
councilman's room, yet you appear in this august tribunal and try to get a reversal to
the decision of the court below.
The court, through its system of deduction, has taken the evidence and scruti-
nized it minutely, and it appears that you not only entered the aforesaid apartments
breathing your foul breath hither and thither, but that one of your party attempted
to play and did indulge in a game of set-back. It also appears that he had no con-
scientious scruples against having his mule lassoed by either the ruler or the ace, but
was so blinded that the lady of the house captured him easily, so paralyzed was the
cerebrum of this defendant that he played said mule upon the first card leading out,
whether possessed by the opponents or by his ally. It further appears that while
enjoying this common pastime, aforesaid defendants pipe fell suddenly and violently
to the floor, thus dislocating its stem. In his attempt to pick up said pipe, he
gallantly amused the inmates of the aforesaid room by his gymnastic head stunts
by butting and falling on the floor, to the heart-felt sympathy of a friend, who helped
the said defendant to regain his seat. That further in his attempts to place the
pipe in statu quo, his optics seemed not to get the correct angle with the light, as he
placed it into the bowl of said pipe, for which he appeared to be extremely well
The evidence shows that another one of the defendants gently reclined on the
bed of said honor councilman, and was soon hugged in the arms of Morpheus, trav-
eling through the land of Nod. This said defendant did continue to sleep until his
roommate escorted him to his own apartment with a great display of physical energy.
The records evidence the further fact that two of said defendants, while seeking
their downy couches about 2 a.m., were suddenly stopped because their pathway was
impeded by certain pottery. That said defendants would not deviate from their path,
but instead, their souls being suddenly transformed into a battleground of passions,
prompted them to attack the pottery, which they did, thereby breaking it, to the
detriment of the University, as well as damaging the point of their shoes. For this
offense they might have been convicted of malicious mischief, but following the
doctrine of stare decisis, the offense was rightly and justly merged into the more
heinous crime, the one that these defendants are charged with committing. The
evidence continues to show that they stampeded up and down the halls until the wee
hours of the morning, to the annoyance of the sleeping inmates of the various rooms.
"O worshipers of Bacchus, why dost thou not cease venerating such a god?
Your paths are too narrow to allow such an impediment. My heart hopes for you but
justice must be meted out."
The evidence that you bring convicts you of being intoxicated-yea, intoxicated
even to the extent of being drunk, and now I will render a few words in closing as a
warning to future law breakers:
'Tis writ in an ancient script, that one pint makes a monkey of a human being, two
pints zu lion, :ind three pints :x hog. lfrom thc evidence the court concludes that you
were lions, wreaking your vengeance upon llIlI'llll'lll pottery. roaring your blus-
phemous epithets through the solemn recesses of :1 college dormitory: yet while in tlze
presence of humanity you were the silent. bloated-t':xcerl clieclqcr players.
The court decided, after much thought :ind worry. to confine you within the
dismal walls of the State peniteuti:1ry, but on account of your loving parents the
rule will be relaxed in this instance. Your crime couunitted will inure to the detri-
ment ot' your progeny, yea. even to the third and fourth generations. Your
craving for that Utopian stimulant will have to be satisfied by the contents of the
water wagon, for you are hereby condemned to drive that vehicle. the breach of which
duty will banish you from this State forever.
As for your lives here on earth. no doubt you will be haunted by visions of
snakes, reptiles and devils, for I Cilll already sec within your hollow eyed sockets the
footprints of delirium tremens. For torturing your body. you deserve not the sym-
pathy of mankind, but rather should you be shunned by every human being as :i
As for your polluted souls, I will bequeath them to the furies. May they con-
fine them in the utmost recesses of the blnckest void, to Hit from century to century,
ad infinitum. Your reward is your just desertsg your fate is the consequences of
As for your body, may it never die, but let it be pinned, Promethean-like, to
Bunker Hill, while from day to day may fl vulture appear and tear and peck at your
liver us a punishment. The case is hereby affirmed.

History of funior Law Class 'l l
VVhen we take a retrospective view of our predecessors achievements in the art
of the law, and the history that they formulated while closely connected with their
Alma Mater, it is with an air of pride and a sense of deep responsibility that we for
one moment stop and contemplate the prospects and responsibilities of the class of
1910-11, as we enter into the realm of this very honorable profession.
On a day set aside by the faculty of the University for the election of class
officers, a small number of this body, most of whom were not familiar with Univer-
sity customs, met and elected their officers. At this election the spirit of pride was
raised high, and each man began to realize as never before that he was entering upon
one of the most honorable and dignified professions known to man. A profession as
old as time itself, and full of reward, yes, blooming with laurels of roses, and every
one who is interested in this very splendid profession may reach forth and freely
pluck the fruits of this rich heritage, if he will only diligently apply himself to the
mastery of this noble art.
VVe are proud of the fact that we have the largest class in the history of the
University, and there is no question as to it being the best. Now, what can we
attribute this to? Is it to the fact that the University is progressing? Can we say
that it is due to a greater interest in the profession? Is it traceable to the demand
for more professional men? These are logical questions, and it seems but natural
that we should answer them in the affirmative, but such we cannot do. But every
man will agree that the high standing of the Junior Law Class, its size and its
progress and achievements are due to our beloved professor, Mr. Farley, who is
thoroughly versed in the theory and the practice of the law. He not only possesses
the rare gift of expounding every principle of righteousness and justice, but he
imparts his knowledge of the law to us, and this he has so thoroughly done until he
has indelibly impressed upon every member of this body that they must learn to rely
upon self, if they wish to accomplish the most in their profession. 1Vell was it
stated by our instructor in one of his very able lectures when he said "that he could
only lead and direct us along the path that enters into the valley of roses, and there
we must pluck for ourselves." This, we are proud to say, he has very ably done.
There is a psychological axiom that one can be taught but not learned a thing, this,
however, seems untrue in this particular instance, and we feel that our professor
has not only taught, but learned us the law.
The year is almost gone, and we are almost ready to step upon a higher cliff
in the profession. But as we look back upon the records of the Junior Law Class of
1910-11, and consider for a moment each individual, we see in our ranks men who
well represent every activity of college life. We have in our midst poets who wield
the pen with no small degree of skill, yes, poets who sing lyrics of love and fancy,
which moves the hearts of man and maiden. We claim as ours, orators and coming
statesmen, who can sway an audience by their matchless eloquence. Yes, we even see
senators and governors in our midst, and we know we have among us men who will
occupy seats in our next Legislature and will wield the balance of power for the
enforcement of law and order, and the formation of more just statutes for the
people of Mississippi. VVe even have in our midst those who belong to the noble
category of the imparters of knowledge and who rank high in the profession. Indeed,
every phase of eloquence and grandeur known to man is well represented. Even
those who form fascinating pictures of fancy, and who drift off unconsciously into
the paradise of ease, love and contentment, are present.
Our history, 'tis true, is short, but we believe an honorable one. We have not
had time to participate very extensively in University activities, for we have been
too busy preparing the soil in which to plant the tree of the Law during our Senior
year, consequently our infiuence in the University and capacity for doing things have
not been fully realized, save by those who have come into direct contact with us.
Indeed, our career may seem to some as a myth and a quiet and peaceful slumber
in the regions of dreamland. But when the dawn of our Senior year breaks forth,
if such thoughts have been entertained, they will soon be eliminated and the rock
foundation on which all have builded will never be torn asunder by the winds of
time and the storms of all trials. So it is here in our Junior year that we have
constantly admonished each other, that nothing good or great has ever been accom-
plished without toil, privation and attention. This every man seems to realizeg
such being the case. Mississippfs University has not only the largest Junior
law class i11 its history. but 111en who will rank with the sages of thi- past in the
making of law and its interpretation.
Alas, our connection with tl1e Junior Law Class is rnpidlv dl'IiXVlllg' to zx close.
but each day we are more deeply impressed that there is nothing nobler or granider
than the law. So in the beginning. when God first created 111311. he saw that he could
not live alone, and thus He placed about him the reins of protection when He h:1nded
down the law from Mt. Sinai, written 1113011 tablets of stone. and coininzmdecl Moses
and l1is people to use it as a model and be governed ziccordiiig to its divine principles.
lVhere, ol1 where, and when has there ever been a class in the history of any
i11stitutio11 who appreciates the virtues of tl1e law 111ore than we. :uid who will take
as much pride in trnnslnitting to future generations the divinity of this most noble
art? Such, fellow students, is o11r history.

Forget? Ah, no, I c:m't forget!
Deep in my soul I see thee yet.
As dear, as sweet, as beautiful,
As good, as true, as dutiful,
As when I saw into your eyes
And drank the love that in them lies.
Forget? lvhen every rose upon her thorn
And every breath of blushing morn
Are whispering of grace divine-
Of beauty, love, that's only thine?
lYhen every star that studs the sky
Reflects the glory of thine eye?
Forget? Ah, no, it cannot be!
As long as rivers feed the sea,
As long as life is left in me
I'll think of thee-
I'll love but thee-
For love is deep, and love is strong,
And love's but love when love is long.

Senior Medical Class History
In writing the history of the Senior Medical Class of '11, the historian feels
handicapped from the beginning, because of his inability to do justice to the worth
and merit of this scholarly, ambitious and earnest class of young men. We represent
the largest class that ever graduated in the Medical Department in the University
of Mississippi, and this not only in numbers, but also in the fullness of our prepara-
tion and the large percentage of well-rounded, competent students, whose success in
life can be safely and certainly foreseen even from this, not too distant, viewpoint.
Although our number is "twenty-three," yet this is symbolic of nothing' fast, except
our ability and increased capacity for turning oil' large amounts of work by rein-
forcement when the occasion demands it. The historian would not mar the highly
esteemed friendship of his fellow classmates with flattery, but he wishes to state in all
sincerity that in his four years' experience in the University he has never seen a class
as a whole which realized the responsibility of their duty, or which has moved with
more certain step and indomitable determination to win the goal of their ambition-
as has the Senior Medical Class of this year.
However, our voyage of college life has not been smooth sailing, for often we
have wandered like a "Roland" far out into the very depths of the mysteries of
science which we so much love to represent, where we have been bound by the
"Leathers" of intricate relationships and unrevealed secrets, and pierced by the
"Bullitt" of voluminousness, until we could scarcely extricate ourselves without
raising some "Muck-and-Fuss." But we have come out from the depths of mystery
through the path of knowledge, with a clean and spotless "Page,,' believing that on the
whole we have done "Nicely,' and determined that our under classmen, instructors
and fellows shall say of us that: "The class of '11 came, the class of '11 saw, and
the class of '11 conquered." HISTORIAN, '11,

See that proud banner unfurled,
Announcing to the world
That he might read tho' he ran,
Hark! "The mind is the man."
The "white plague" is all but slain
By the man with the brain,
Among both white and tan.
Yes, "The mind is the man."
Come day when life is restored
By the man who has bored
Deep while under the ban,
Since "The mind is the man."
Surely you are but the tool
Handled by knave or fool
For accomplishing a task
Of which the wise may ask.
Dr. Reed his blood laid bare
To Stegomyia's care,
Not for sordid yellow gold,
But for true manhood old.
Follow me thru ev'ry nation.
In each high station
We find the man who Can.
For "The nund is the man."
Has become a sigher
For her danderous clan.
Sure, "The mind is the man."
Say you, "The mind is the nmn
Prove me this if you can.
Was it nothing but the mind
'That causes many a iind?
When the poor man of Holland
Ground his lens in the sand,
Was it for self he dill plan,
Or to benefit man?
Of this sentence should be passed
Where the lunatic classed,
If he his mind shall have lost.
Be nothing left but ghost.
The most humble lens grinder
Was the small bug finder,
Disease cause in his hand.
Why? "The mind is the man."
Many with a part that was lllsl
Are restored at small cost
By him who has a plan.
Ah, "The mind is the man."
Mind, you did often wonder
While true man did ponder
The deep hidden things of life
During the heat of strife.
But you, 0 most grasping elf,
Strive for profit of self,
While the real, unselfish man
Helps wherever he can.
The true man looks up to God
And mind stays on the sod:
For man is not the mind, and
The mind is not the man.

History of Engineering Class
The Engineering Class of "Ole Miss" is small and select, witl1 members spread
out over the four-year course in all stages of graduation. Before entering we had
been told that engineering was the mightiest profession of the present age. and
were warned that the course was hard and the lower ranks of the profession crowded.
But in our youthful innocence we did not heed the warning, each smiled inwardly
and confidently told himself that he had ability and strength of purpose sufficient
to carry himself to the top, however arduous the task should prove to be. Visions
of the drawing room, with T-squares and triangles. enticed us, and the lure of the
compass and transit was irresistible. So each of us in turn went to the Dean with the
modest request that he transform us into engineers.
Our course has been a succession of rude awakenings. The first disconcerting
blow usually comes in Math. Each Sophomore personifies mathematics into a mon-
strous being, horned and hoofed and endowed with all the hellish attributes of the
devil himself. lVhen, with Dr. Hume as audience, the Soph. ends his bout with his
mathematical majesty and turns to receive the applause which is his due, what is
his consternation to find what he thought was a cheer prolonged into an ironieal and
And thus it goes, in what we are pleased to call the engineering room the wizard
therein produces for us a never ending series of technical seancesg, in which lengthy
demonstrations and witty jokes whirl round with dizzy velocity. Our equilibrium
is completely lost amid bombardments of diabolical "practical problems," and when
the stroke of the bell brings us back to the land of the living we emerge reeling
and staggering from the sheer weight of added knowledge, of things teclmieal as
well as mental, moral and of all phases of human life.
From time -to time members of the class fall by the waysideg some take law.
some pedagogy, and others go into various other professions, but those of us who
remain faithful are cheered on by the fact that occasionally a few of our number
escape all the pitfalls set by a cunning faculty and actually graduate, and when
they do it is the invariable rule that they go out into the world and "make good."

Department of Pharmacy
Realizing the need of a college of pharmacy in the State, on July 1, 1908, the
University of Mississippi added such a department co-ordinate with those already
established. Accordingly, on September 2-L, 1908, the doors of the Department of
Pharmacy were opened for the reception of students.
The aim of this department is to provide instruction for students who desire
to acquire the special training necessary for the successful practice of pharmacy.
The importance both to the pharmacist and to the public of a thorough, scientific
training in pharmacy is now fully recognized. The course extends throughout two
collegiate sessions, nine months each. The department is admirably equipped for
doing excellent work. The laboratories are provided with all the necessary fixtures
and conveniences for all general purposes, and contain fully equipped stands, with
reagents, and for each student a closet with apparatus under his own lock and key.
The last Legislature of Mississippi, understanding the good work being accom-
plished by the Pharmacy Department, passed the following act:
"An Act to permit graduates of the Pharmaceutical Department of the Univer-
sity of Mississippi to practice pharmacy without further examination.
"Section 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Mississippi, That
applicants for license to practice pharmacy, who hold diplomas from thc Depart-
ment of Pharmacy in the State University of Mississippi, be and they are hereby
entitled to have license issued to them by the State Board of Pharmaceutical Exam-
iners without further examination, but shall be required to conform to all other
requirements for the issuance of licenses.
"Sec. 2. That this Act take effect and be in force from and after its passage.
"Approved March 29, 1910."
It is the purpose of the University to use this law in elevating the standard
of pharmacy in Mississippi, and it confidently expects to contribute large service to
the profession through the increasing number of graduates that it shall send out
from year to year.

Senior Pharmacy Class History
In September, 1909, the unlucky number of thirteen noble Juniors entered upon
their journey to the Ph.B. degree. Realizing that the journey was hard and rugged,
we gathered plenty of supplies and set out at a slow, steady pace.
It was not long before Mr. Elliot was relieved of his duties at the University
in order to devote all of his time to pleasure and travel, as he was taking Pharmacy
only as a side line. Thus, being relieved of the unlucky number, we were enabled
to quicken our pace. Mr. Alexander was the next to leave our ranks. His father
being in need of a pill roller, chose his son. Mr. Harris, after making two unsuc-
cessful attempts, decided that pharmacy was a natural art, and so dropped by the
wayside before we had gone half the journey. In order that you may know the
quality of our material, will say that Mr. YVoodward was chosen to represent Uncle
VVe frequently made short stops, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays,
but there was only one stop of any considerable importance. We reached this about
the first of June, after having passed through a great battle with exams. The
majority passed through this struggle safe and sound, while a few received slight
wounds. We then broke camp, some going away to accept summer positions and
others going home to rest.
ln September, 1910, we again resumed our journey. Realizing that we were
dignified Seniors, we began to scale the barriers and mount higher in the pharma-
ceutical world. Mr. Fisackerly failed to return, and as the march of the second year
hcgan Mr. Guess was unable to leave camp, and so was left to be picked up by the
onrushing Juniors. Our number being somewhat cut off, we received reinforcements
from other schools, these being none other than Messrs. Miller, Carr and Vanzandt.
These men being experienced soldiers, we all took new courage. Although Mr.
Vanzandt held a diploma from Atlanta and insisted that he had license in several
States, he was not able to keep pace with the charter members, and was soon called

A GROUP OF PHARMACY STUDENTS
The Discovery of America
Since the year 14492 master minds have written glowing accounts of the daring
exploits of one Christopher Columbus, the universally believed discovercr of the
American COlltillCllt. Their careful research may have been good, their knowledge
of history may have been perfect, in their estimation, and with clear consciences they
detailed the heroic efforts of this famous navigator in matehless rhetoric. But, like
the predicament of Peary when he was told that Cook was ahead, Columbus must
be waked and told the names of the first discoverers of North America. The dis-
covery has been kept inviolate by this modest set of adventurers, and only this year
did the truth come to light. It was not intended to be told. but a University professor
had a habit of doing sleeping discourses, and from l1in1 the occupant in the next
room caught the gist of the story. The perpetual tongued teacher did not know
that he was giving away this secret discovery, and the rest of the men who were in
the party must look to this teacher to settle their grievances after the facts are
published to the world. They know that Columbus was given the honor of the
discovery, and being such a nice bunch of men, they raised no protest, and they
will, if proof is necessary, submit their proofs to the University of Copenhagen
for final decision. Not a better set of men could have been found to do this great
undertaking, and it is well before we go further into details that the names of the
famous sailors be given right now. They are our present, precious FACULTY.
Do you believe it? Yvait and see. By way of a bouquet the men chosen to make
the trip were the best that could be found in all the then known world.
In the following account of the selection of the men and the trip across, we
cautiously admit that many of the dates may not be contemporary with some of the
characters mentioned and incidents occuring, but we are not responsible for the
license received, what the slumbering professor said and why the discovery was
made. After looking through the knotted and gnarled branches of both mine and the
professor's family tree, the conclusion shows that we are remotely connected on our
right-side with certain wiles of one Ananias. Xvith that as an introduction, the
search for the sailors will now henceforthly and herewithly begin.
It was in the spring of 14180 that young Andrew Armful Kincannon, of Oxford,
England, decided to sail into unknown lands. The spirit of that age was reckless
adventure upon the seas. as well as upon the land. Young Andy had already been
to the world's end. as some thought, but high up in his belfry something told him
that other continents were far away. Possessed of some wealth. the young man fitted
himself in traveling costume and executive authority. and set out in quest of suitable
material to man the ship. Several towns in England failed to produce the desired
specimens, and Andy was getting weary of the search. Traveling further on, he
approached the town of Somerset, and noticed in the public square two men standing
before an audience. The men in the audience seemed to be hard at work over an
enormous pile of yellow books, haranguing over some exciting case. The sign board
explains the Situation. It read: ULAVVLESS SOMERVILLE is LAWFUL FAR-
LEY. DEALERS IN MORAL. CIVIL, COMMON. STATUTE, CRIMINAL
AND GOVERNMENT LAWS. BY-LAVVS AND LAVVS OF NATURE A
SPECIALTY. PATRONAGE SOLICITED. LEARN TO LIE. GET RICH
QUICK." Among their pupils the present Chancellor noticed the following men:
Justinian, Moses, Hortensius, Gaius, Paulus. Papinian :md Blackstone. To give up
such an exalted position was looked upon as nearly impossible. but the tongue of
young Andy decided their fate. A wise choice he made. and inspired by this success
he left to find others, the lawyers to await the Chancellor in his Liverpool office.
.lourneying into liVales. he found a i11:111 I ililinii ling bisectors and tangents through
the I 11111 iid atmosphere at the good-humored Euclid and Lord Napier. This sign was
conspicuously painted over the door: "ALICE HUME. TRAFFICKER IN
CIPHERS, NUM BERS, FIGURES, ZEROS AND PI. SAMPLE COPY FREE.
LEARN TO ADD." Finally he accepted the offer of the Cl i:x11m -ellor and left his
pupils to finish the foundation of mathel i1:i ties.
After an extended search in the rest of England and Scotland. Andy met with
no results, and crossed over to Ireland. Here he found Riley teaching men how to
write history, and as a side issue he excavated peat hogs for the rem x1:x ins of primitive
man. His pupils were Sallust. Caesar, Plutareh, Livy, Tacitus and Aristotle. This
sign hung from the doorway: HIVRESHMEN HISTORY RILEY. BROKER IN
XVORLD EVENTS, LIBRARY NOTES. NIYTHICAL AND RELIABLE.
STONE IMPLEMENTS AND RIVER DRII"'I'S. KNOW 'I'HYSELl". WHY.
YVHEN AND VVHERE." He was riled at first over the poor proposition. but the
thought of finding Protolithic specimens in the new country to be discovered, brought
him to a final agreement. Andy was happy over this find, and renewed the search
His quest of men through the larger towns of' Ireland met with no success, and
he passed around the southern part of England and through the North Sea to the
Netherlands. Here he found Petite Dorroh building dikes. The surveyor agreed to
go, inspired by the pleasure of surveying the new country. Surely young Andy must
have had a keen insight into capable humanity.
Passing into Germany, Andrew found Guten Tag Brown teaching "Dutch"
in the University of Berlin. VVhile his classes studied he read "Browning," browned
corn and played with the junior Brown. He yielded to the request of Andy and
immediately left for Liverpool.
The trip through Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, Roumania and Servia was fruit-
less, and passing on into Montenegro he found Uncle Bob seated on a big white
throne, governing the people. A position of messenger boy and sweeping clerk was
offered him, and he accepted quickly. Another good choice.
In Turkey, Judie Tarpaulin Spann was found spinning flax with a mathematical
spinster. Each hank of thread he carefully measured by the Spannometric system
of computation and ate Pi, while the spinster indulged in cylindrical glances. This
caused tangent spooning to begin, and before the terminal function was reached
Spanometre had not bisected his proposal. It might have happened, but the Chan-
cellor appeared at the wrong time. Poor Cupid! Judie accepted the position of
"log" keeper on board the ship.
Down into intellectual Greece the Chancellor now made his way. Here he
expected to find some notable men to share his fortunes. He was not disappointed.
for as he came over the mountain ranges from the north the first man he saw
was Milden, leading the victorious legions of the Grecian nation against the
combined armies of the world. Not staying behind and giving orders by wireless,
but in front of his phalanxes, rushing them on. Every time he would smile the
strong armed Spartans hurled a volley of javelins at the enemy, pushing them back
against the mountain and finishing the destruction. "That man," quoth the Chan-
cellor, "must go with me," and after General Milden had rested, the question of
continuing his world-wide achievements was asked and accepted.
The next stop was greasy Athens, and as Andrew Armful approached thc
Parthenon this sign was seen hanging by the door: HJOHNNIE CLARKSVILLE
JOHNSON, DISTRIBUTER OF ORATORY, PRO AND CON, SPON-
TANEOUS OR COPYRIGHTED. DRAMATICAL SITUATIONS AT REA-
SONABLE PRICES. NEXV SUPPLY OF GESTURES, NICELY FOLDED
AND PACKED IN A STRONG BOX. FREE PERFORMANCE TVVICE
DAILY. COME IN.',
Going in, he saw the commanding figure of the teacher standing "at parade
rest" before his pupils, incidentally making l1is pharynx and larynx do grand and
gorgeous aerobatic noises for the instruction of the young orators. Those that were
studying oratory and the drama were as follows: Shakespeare, Cicero, Crassus,
Ennius, Terence, Pericles, Andronicus and Delnosthenes. He politely yielded to the
proposition of the Chancellor, gathered up his oratory, dramatic scenes and gestures
and left at once for Liverpool. XVise was the selection.
In the Acropolis, Auspicious Armful found Graeco Baden teaching Latin to
visiting students. He formerly lived in Baden-Baden, Germany, but moved to
Greece in order to supply his table with gravy. He consented to go.
By this time the center of civilization was transferred to Rome, and to that city
Andrew made his way. The news of Caesar's assassination had reached him as he
entered the city, and he immediately hurried to the scene. There he saw Robinson,
Rowland, Paige and Nicely working hurriedly over the sword-pierced Caesar. By
applying some patent medicine and some soothing syrup, they restored Caesar to his
former self. Brutus and others looked on in amazement, and wanted to do the job
over, but Caesar's forces rallied and the revolutionists dispersed. He then accepted
the thrice offered crown and handed over 98 cents to the doctors. "Never Again,"
the doctor's motto. Mustachio Paige was a page for Caesar, Nicely did a nice prac-
tice in Nice, Italy, but was in Rome to see the triumphal march. Robinson and Row-
land were partners in Rome, and practiced the manicuring of teeth and the renova-
tion of noses. All of them decided to take the trip. Leathers was working in a
tannery, doctoring leather. He also agreed to join the adventurers. Before the
doctors could get to Liverpool they had to cure the "Dying Gaul," Hannibal and
From the busy Rome, Andrew walked briskly over the new roads toward the
Vatican. As he passed a group of road niakcrs hc noticed Bi-Gology Rhodes laying
stone and chasing bugs. Rhodes. master masow in bugs. insects and uologiesf'
hurricd to A. Armstrong for another linc of work. The bug man was hircd at onci
and went his way rejoicing-catching bugs.
Passing into the Vatican, Andy found Psyethical Hedleston distributing Ethics.
Religion, Philosphy and Science to Seneca, Plato, Socrates, Justin, Varro, Pliny
and Epictetus. Great was his selection.
Visiting the Colosseum the next day, he found Ad Libitum Bondurant, lfac
Simile Longest and Bona Fide Baden listening to explosions of grammar and rhetoric
from the Latin-tongued Horace, Virgil and Caesar. These "anno, amas, amat" were
easily persuaded to seek other Latin countries.
Taking passage on a Roman galley, Andy was rowed over to Sardinia. llVhile
strolling about the village of Sardines he came up to a dugout, and imprinted about
the door were these words: "ORGANIC MUCKENFUSS, IXORGANIC KENNON
AND EQUATION RUCKER. ALCHEMISTS, ELEMENT DISCOVERERS.
GOLD MAKERS, PANACEAS FOR ALL DISEASES. DEALERS IN RE-
TORTS, REACTIOXS AND RADIUM. LET US DISCOVER YOUR ELE-
MENTS. LEARN TO ANALYZE.,' His curiosity was aroused, and he imme-
diately stepped into the gaseous room. Dropping their work, the alchemists bid the
guest welcome, greatly honored by the visit of what they thought some distinguished
Roman general. During the conversation relative to journeying across the world,
where other elements might be found, the three men became highly delighted over
the opportunity and began at once to pack their foundations of Chemistry for the trip.
That evening the four were seated in the dugout, dining on sardines and gas. The
Chancellor learned much of the new theories and how elements were discovered. The
latest elements to their list-earth, dirt and land.
Traveling now into Spain and up into the Pyrennes, he found Signor Monsieur
Senor Diester teaching Italy, France and Spain. Sitting astride the Franeo-Span-
iard-Italicized boundary lines, he taught the three states with ease and politeness.
Diester did all he could, dyeing every night, dusting in the morning and dieting at
meal tilncs. Rcsigning his spreading position, he followed thc directions of the
Down into the Mediterranean Sea and across to Egypt was Arinstrong's next
move, and before many minutes another surveyor was added to the growing list of
sailors. Triggcrfoot Dranc was the addition, and his work was attempting to drain
the sea into the Sahara Desert. The drainage failed.
Going back over the sea, he came to tl1e Strait of Gibraltar. Looking up he saw
Jimmy Bell tolling the knell of parting day as the waves surged over the sea.
Back into the rock he found Historical Garrett making "Garrett Snuiff' and down
into another crevice was Jones exe 1i11 ining and geologizing the rock. Farther down
into the rock Andy was horrified to see "Daniel in the Lionis Den." Commanding
the lions to cease destruction, Andrew walked in and rescued the trembling Daniel.
"Another Daniel come to judgment." Every one was pleased over the offer to sail
Torrential Torrey was fo 1111 d in the Torrid Zone, soaked by the torrents.
Andrew made a fire, so Torrey could torrefy himself. CHere the discourse of the
sleeping talker became inaudible, and the rest of Torrey's discovery goes unknownj
It remains to be seen whether Torrey appears on board the sailing vessel. Now
the professor begins to talk again. but about another man.
Kincannon hastens now to Liverpool, and before he could enter the dock with his
small ship, Dunning L. Ross, the customs officer, demanded fees and some more fees.
Quoth the adventurer: "I need thee." He at once put the officer to buying kitchen
outfits for the ship.
Counting over his men, Andy finds that he needs three more, and hastens by
horse power to Manchester, England. Displayed in gilt letters this sign was prom-
inently placed: 'KDAVY BISHOP AND HORSE POVVER JOHNSON, PRO-
MOTERS OF GRAMMATICAL PARLANCE. ANY LINGO COMPOUNDED.
SEEN, SAW' AND TAKEN ADJUSTED FREE. COMPLETE LINE OF ENG-
LISH, PRIMITIVE, MEDIEVAL, MODERN AND SLANG. INSPECT OUR
VOCABULARX '." Going in. the Chancellor saw them teaching many young writers,
who afterward were recognized as the world's best pencil pushers. VVith seven grins
and one polite bow, both accepted the offer.
Dashing at top speed to Greenwich, he 1'n':x d this announcement inscribed on a
big board: "JOKE YVAGGERY JOHNSON. ASTRONOBIER. SPECIALIST IN
STARS AND BARS. MOONBEAMS AND SUNSHINES AT HALF PRICE.
PLANETS, SPI-IFIRES AND COMETS SOLD OUT. NO HALF MOONS,
ALIVAYS FULL. IVALK IN AND GET YOUR ONLY LOOK INTO PARA-
DISE." Peeping through the door, he sees the teacher explaining eclipses and
other heavenly mathematics to Hipparclms, Aristarchus and Archimedes. incidentally
telling some jokes about Adam and Fve. He was easily persuaded to follow the
fortunes of the young adventurer.
lVith this last selection, the trip back to Liverpool was quickly made and a ship
chartered for the sail across. Every man selected was carefully storing away his
"details," and when the last necessary articles were on board the sails were furled.
the decks cleared and as the wind caught against the cloud-like sheets. the strong
ship crunched through the rippling waters and over the waves to fame and fortune.
The name of the ship had been discussed and finally they decided on "OLE MISS"
to be the best. J. IV. Johnson could be seen up in the top mizzen mast, directing the
course by his astronomical insight. Hume worked the tiller and Hedleston acted as
chaplain. Longest shined shoes and Paige sold peanuts and pop corn. Johnnie
.lumpup Johnson was the toastmaster. Bell would ring for meals and Bondurant
mended the sails. The cabin boy was Daniel, and the court jester, Deupree. Rucker,
Kennon and Muckenfuss did the cooking, and Nicely, Torrey and H. P. Johnson
waited on the tables. Uncle Bob washed the dishes and Rhodes killed the germs.
Leathers, Baden, Brown and Milden handled the pumps, and Rowland and Dorroh
were the carpenters. Drane, Somerville, Farley, Riley and Ross worked the rapid-
fire Gatlings. Bishop was sick, and ditto Diester. 'With all these precious men fitted
to their respective positions, the time passed oii' quickly and no form of discourage-
ment had yet appeared. Passing by an island about mid ocean, the crew were sur-
prised to see Crusoe Robinson. The ship was stopped and the young man gladly
boarded the vessel. For the next thousand miles the sailing was pleasant, and every
man on the ship was having one glorious jubilee-mostl y up-to-date faculty meetings.
Finally the look of dismay and of mutiny crept upon the sturdy faces of the sailors.
and here Andrew showed his worth. Opening his case of executive ability, and with
several hundred wiles of the politican. he quieted the frenzied and fear-stricken men.
Seasickncss rained and poured over the rails into the sea. but the ship kept shipping.
No turning back-a continent must be discovered.
After a month had passed and things were getting gloomy, the orator of the
crew had them all to assemble on the main deck and listen to cheering words and
praises for their valor in trying hours. In the middle of his great speech everybody
was startled to sec .I. XV. Johnson coming head foremost down the mizzcn mast and
fall sprawling on the Hoor. During the excitement the lately fallen muttered some-
thing about pirates in the distancc. Some faintcd and others went to their cabins.
But the gun men rallied and loaded up shrapnel, canister and grape for the approach-
ing pirates. Andrew, with his Armful, hurried about to give orders, saying: "This
is an auspicious occasion, and we feel proud of the showing we are about to make."
Our oratory man was exploding on HCOURAGEH and giving assistance by ramming
the cannon's bore. Then the pirate brig loomed into view, and Triggerfoot Drane
made ready to shoot when commanded. Suddenly from across the water a flash of
fire and smoke was seen, and later followed by a thunderous roar. Hurtling through
the air a murderous looking mass fell sizzling on the deck of "OLE MISS." Exam-
ination proved it to be a Bullit. .I. C. .Iohnson rammed him into an empty cannon
and shot the Bullitt back to the pirates. Hitting the hull of the ship and smashing
it about the water line, the pirate boat began to sink. As Bullitt plowed his way
through the hold of the ship he fell into another cannon, and pulling the trigger he
shot himself back to the conquering vessel, and falling gently on the deck was gladly
received by all. Only one visiting pirate was saved, and that was Traveling Fant.
Passing now from this scene of carnage, and with the Bullitt stored away for
other demonstrations, the sailors began to look forward to signs of land. Into the
rigging the nimble men climbed, all eagerly desirous of seeing the land first. It so
happened that all saw it at thc same time and with a big yell, as if one sound, they
said: "I saw it first!" "Hush, men," said the oratorical, "there is enough glory for
all." This settled thc argument, and preparations for landing began. Exactly on
the thirty-first day of February, 1-LSO, the landing was made. The Indians received
them graciously, and explained the lay of the land to the enthusiastic sailors, and
telling them that they had already named the continent "AMl'lltlC'A." Bishop.
llaniel, Km-nnon, Garrett. Rhodes and ll. P. Johnson immediately cabled lo their
"intendeds" the news oi' their safe arrival.
The new world was found at last. and what were they to do with it? Andy
hit upon a plan and sent thousands of letters to homefolks to come over and live
in the new country. Vast crowds came and established big cities and colleges under
the supervision of the sailors. Andy and his men drifted about, teaching in many
colleges. and at last settled in Oxford. 1818. U. of M. was established, and through
varying forms of success they are with us still-even unto 1911. Although they may
be aged in years and service. they still promise to keep up their famous network of
world events and work for the youth of the Southland. All historians of appreciative
history, and those who want the truth about the discovery. please carefully consider
the above. R. H. R.

PHI SIGMA LITERARY SOCIETY
History of Phi Sigma Literary Sociely
During the first two years of the University's existence, the need of an outlet
for literary endeavor was supplied by the QPKB Literary Society, which, however,
passed from University history and was supplanted by the society which has since
been one of the leading literary features of the institution. In its halls have sounded
the voices of men who have won fame at the bar, on the bench, in the pulpit and in
the halls of Congress.
On the 5th day of May, 1849, at early candle light, the CIJKB Society met for the
last time. The President called the house to order, and the society began its regular
business. A committee appointed to draft a new constitution and by-laws and pre-
pare a suitable mode of initiation, was heard and their work adopted unanimously.
A motion was then heard to change the name of the society. The new name, Phi
Sigma Philo-Stephanie, signifying lovers of distinction, met ready approval. Only
the motto of the old society remained: Causa laetet sed vis est notissima Q"The cause
lies concealed, but the force appearsnj. For the selection of a badge, a committee
was appointed and reported at the next meeting. Their suggestion was adopted, and
the hollow lsosceles triangle inscribed with the initial letters of the motto and
fb E V. M. became the badge of the society. Soon after the organization of the
society appeared the first issue of the KID E magazine. a work with which no campus
publication has since compared. Into it were thrown the combined interests of all
the members, and to it they gave their time and money. An excellent library owned
by the society supplied a source of material for all literary work. Those members
assigned the duty of writing essays and debates and securing declamations were
never at a loss for subject matter. In case of neglected duty a fine of 25 cents was
imposed and doubled at the next meeting if the member was not prepared. The
order preserved surpassed that of the class room. Fines were readily imposd on
members guilty of gross inattention, crossing their legs, leaning back in their chairs
and putting their feet on the seat in front of them. The interest at this time was
not only manifested by a majority of the students, but also by the professors and
the townspeople of Oxford. It became the custom of the society to elect an anniver-
sarian to represent it on its :nlniversary day. 'flu-se were gala days on lhc campus
and in town. On such occasions the society members, wearing their gold badges.

shoulder. together with the faculty. led hy the Chancellor, marched under waving
banners to one of thc town churches, where the exercises were held. The church was
decorated by a committee appointed for that purpose, and was always taxed to its
In July, 1861, 112 2 held its last ante-bellum meeting, donated 25125 to the
University Grays and adjourned sine die. Several of its members soon joined the
University Grays. Few of 412 E followers survived the ravages of the devastating
war, yet on October 7th, 1865, a nucleus met in one of the class rooms to gather thc
scattered possessions of CID E and to add to its already brilliant list the names of many
sanguine and enthusiastic youths. The efforts of these loyal members soon restored
order from chaos, and gave to fb 2 its former symmetry and beauty. The next
twenty years of its record rivals the unexcelled accomplishments before the war.
The livest questions were discussed with intense interest by the members, the chair
rendering decisions subject to the substantiation of the house. Anniversary elections
were carefully planned long before the election day, and the position of anniver-
sarian was jealously coveted by all candidates, who contended every foot of ground
for the place. Quite noticeable toward the latter part of this period was the political
skill and ability to wield the "Big Stick," shown by our present Chancellor, in
gaining this honor in the face of furious competition. The interest in these elections
became so intense, causing loss of time by the students. that the faculty required each
man desiring the position to read competitive papers before a committee.
For a few years following this period of high efficiency, a depression in interest
showed itself, due to the new and divided interests of the student body, resultng in
estrangement from the society. The membership fell away materially, the hall was
cut to half its original size, and the library was sold. Diplomas were no longer
given as they had been, and much of the interest in anniversary exercises was lost.
Yet the KI? E spirit was in no way daunted by a cloudy sky. It remained to excel,
as it had always done. In the present day the same indomitable perseverance, filial
affection and love of truth and honor dominated its members. From CD E's hall have
gone men like Chief Justice VVhitfield, Senator Money, Senator Bailey and the
beloved Bishop Galloway. Her future is full of promise, and judging by the past,
her sons of today will be the masters of tomorrow.

History of Hermean Society
ln thc year 18-L8, the very dawn of the University of Mississippi, Hermean
Society was organized and has since, excepting a few years during the sixties,
existed as one of the most important and essential auxiliaries of the University. At
an earlier date the need of the literary society was recognized, since the character and
value of training received in such an organization develops the young mind in a way
that no other department can. Therefore, Hermean started with the University and
has kept pace with her in ensuing years.
Hermean goes to mythology to find her name, and there selects Hermes, the
Greek god of cunning, messenger, wit and oratory, and becomes the namesake of him.
Hermes has dealt liberally with his namesake, and has sent from Hermean halls
orators who have distinguished themselves in the college chair, in the pulpit, at the
bar, on the bench, and in the halls of Congress. The purpose of this organization--
the improvement and development of its members in declamation, debate, extempo-
raneous speaking, parliamentary drill and public speaking-has resulted in quite
satisfactory returns. Hermean has always encouraged public speaking and the
development of oratorical powers. As a stimulus she has given each year of her
existence two medals to the two successful contestants of the Freshmen class in a
declamation contest held annually. A medal is awarded the successful competitor
of the Junior contest on Hermean Day, and a medal is also awarded the winners
of the Senior debate on Commencement Day.
Before the great Civil VVar, the members of Hermean assembled every Saturday
morning in the chapel building, which was donated to Hermean and Phi Sigma, and
rendered a program. During the suspension of the University exercises in the sixties,
the chapel building, including Hermean hall, were used as a hospital for the Confed-
erate soldiers. After four years of struggle, destruction and dilapidation in our
once 'beautiful Southland. the University again resumed its exercises, and Hermean
Society assembled in class rooms to conduct its exercises. since the hall had been
used as a hopsital and was not in condition to be used.
Immediately after the war the halls of the University were filled with a class
of students never before seen in any American college. Perhaps half of the young
men had served in the Confederate army. The efforts put forth and influnce felt
while here resulted in tl1e development of a type of manly character and power
which cannot be equaled by the records of any other American college. Perhaps this
influence was due as much to the literary society as to any other college auxiliary,
since some of the most momentous questions of the day were discussed by men who
have since ranked among the greatest Mississippians. It meant something to be a
Hermean, and all students of the University who were not members of the Phi
Sigma were members of Hermean. This society during these early years edited a
magazine which has not been surpassed nor equaled by any published since. She
had a library of her own. She also conferred diplomas written in Latin upon her
Finally, other organizations detracted the interest of her men. Her membership
began to wane, her library was sold, part of her hall cut up into other rooms and
she discontinued conferring diplomas.
In recent years her membership has not been so large as in former years, but
she has made a persistent effort to maintain her standard. The quality of her work
has been good. Until the more recent years Hermean Day was one of the holidays
that received the richest celebration. To be the anniversarian of Hermean was con-
sidered one of the greatest honors in the gift of the University students. On Hermean
Day it was formerly the custom for the faculty and the student body, headed by a
brass band, to march under floating banners to one of the churches or the courthouse
of Oxford to witness the anniversary exercises. Here a program was rendered
which was worthy of all cheers and applause from the overflowing numbers who
filled the building to its utmost capacity. In recent times anniversary exercises have
been conducted on the campus, and have been accompanied in some instances by n
The work of the society for this year has been unusually good, considering the
circumstances. The interest, enthusiasm and good fellowship existing among the
members has been quite noticeable. Hermean has engaged in one inter-society debate
and united with Phi Sigma in establishing a students' congress.
VVhat Hermean has done and is now doing suggest greater things that she will
do in the future. We have sent men from her halls who have held some of the most
prominent and distinguishing positions of our grand republic, and we believe that
Hermean is now composed of that kind of material that will some day, in the
promising future, win laurels in the halls of fame.

Hisiory of Sludenls, Congress
The Students' Congress at the University of Mississippi is one of the very
few organizations of its kind in existence. There is one at Oxford, England, one at
the University of Virginia, and with probably one or two exceptions, these are the
only ones yet organized.
During the second term of the session of 1910-'11 the members of the two
literary societies, the Phi Sigma and the Hermean, organized a Students' Congress,
which is to be conducted on the plan of the Congress of the United States. Only
bona fide members of one of the literary societies or the Blackstone Club may become
members of this congress. The members of each society represent a political party,
the Phi Sigma adopting the name Phi Sigma party, and the Hermean the name
This congress meets once a month, and although it is composed exclusively of
the members of the societies, it is not intended to take the place of the societies, nor
in any way discredit their work, but rather to stimulate them, in that it fills a gap
which the societies cannot cover. In this congress bills which are of interest to the
State Legislature, and more particularly the Congress of the United States, are
discussed. Besides furnishing an excellent aid to keeping posted on current ques-
tions, it is almost an ideal way of becoming familiar with parliamentary usage and the
rules which govern a legislative body. It is amusing to see the minority party intro-
duce a bill, only to be voted down by the majority party, and, on the other hand, it
is equally amusing to see a bill introduced from the majority party, to be killed or
action held off indefinitely by the tactics of the minority party.
In this organization are men who are already aspirants to county and State
offices, and who knows but that through this congress men are being trained who
will in the future fill not only the higher State offices, but also the highest and most
desired United States offices?

The Debaling League of Southern Stale
Knowing the great value of intercollegiate debate for the development of the
highest qualities of college men, and endeavoring to answer the demand among our
students for such exercise, Professor John C. Johnson, of the Department of Oratory.
began two years ago an extensive correspondence with other institutions in regard to
To several-Cornell, Chicago, Michigan. Virginia, the University of the South.
and Vanderbilt-he addressed letters, asking for suggestions as to the best methods
of organizing and conducting intercollegiate debates. From all these he received
full and helpful answers. He then organized the Intercollegiate Debating Council
of the University. His next step was the addressing of letters to several Southern
institutions, inviting them to join Mississippi in the formation of a Southern Inter-
collegiate Debating League. But since all those addressed had full schedules,
nothing further could be done at that time.
This year correspondence was resumed. with many delays and disappointments,
but with the ultimate result that the Universities of Louisiana. Arkansas, Tennessee,
Texas and Mississippi have formed "The Debating League of Southern State
Under the constitution of this league all the institutions debate the same ques-
tion on the same night-the Friday after the second Monday in April. Each institu-
tion trains two teams, an affirmative and a negative, the affirmative to remain at
home and meet I1 visiting negative, the negative to visit another institution in order
to meet the affirmative there.
The question for this year's debate is: "Resolved, That the system of direct
legislation known as initiative and referendum should be generally adopted by the
Upon this question our affirmative team meets Texas' negative here, and our
negative meets Louisiana's affirmative in Baton Rouge.
Our representatives are: Affirmative, Messrs. T. A. Guy and L. A. VV. Adams,
negative, Messrs. R. Denman and A. B. Schauber.
Whether our victories be many or few, we feel that the League is an extremely
important auxiliary to the University work, for it will require intensive studies of
public questions, it will give to our students practical preparation for their subse-
quent participation in affairs, and it will cultivate relations of cordial friendship and
mutual helpfulness among the members of the organization.
Ich Bin Dein
In tempus old a hero lived,
Qui loved puellas deuxg
He no pourat pas quite to say
Wlhich one amabat mieux.
Dit-il lin-meme un beau matin
"Non possum both avair,
Led si address Amanda Amu,
Then Kate and I have war.
Amanda habet argent coin,
Led Kate has aureas curls,
Et both sunt very agathae,
Et quite formoso girls."
Enfin the youthful authropos,
Philoun the duo maids,
Resolved, proponere ad Kate
Devaut cet evening shades.
Procedens then to Kate's dorno,
Il trouve Amanda there,
Kai vuite forgot his late resolves,
Both sunt so goodly fair.
Led smiling on the new tapis,
Between puellas twain,
Colpit to tell his love a Kate
Dans un poetique strain.
Mais glancing ever et anon
At fair Amanda's eyes,
Illae non possunt dicere
Pro which he meant his sighs.
Each virgo heard the demi-vow
With cheeks as rouge as wine,
And off"ring each a mlk-white hand
Both whispered, "Ich bin dein."

The Young Men's Christian Association
The Young Mens Christian Association is the only organization at thc Univer-
sity that has for its sole purpose the upbuilding of the moral and the religious life.
Its motto, "Spirit, mind, body," means that God meant a man to be a whole man,
symmetrical in every way, and a few years ago the Young Men's Christian Associa-
tion meant only a prayer meeting. At present, without placing less emphasis on the
power of prayer, it has become a means whereby practically any student in school
may find an opportunity to serve his fellowmen and be true to God. The Association
seeks to develop a strong, virile type of Christianity, the faith, tenderness and
unselfishness of the Master Man, combined with the prowess of the athlete. To
men who wish to give their lives to such service and ideals it extends an open hand.
There is no place here for weaklings, unless they take the opportunity to become
strong. Active membership is open to all men of the faculty and student body who
are members of some evangelical church. Others may become associate members.
Only active members may vote and hold office. The officers consist of a President,
Vice-President, Recording Secretary and Treasurer. In addition, special chairmen
are appointed, who have general charge over the following committees: Religious
Meetings, ,Mission Study, Bible Study, Extension, Boys' VVork, Visiting, Member-
ship, Social and Finance. College men get good from the Association in proportion
to the timeand the interest they place in the work. If this organization does not make
life purer fand better, and the University a better place in which to live, it misses

On the next visit it was "Dearie," "Name the Happy Day," and she selecting the
twenty-fifth of "September" for the wedding, he was "Satisfied" Their home was
to be in "In a Shady Bungalow," and "As Long as the World Goes Round" she was
to be "The Queen of the Ranch." In the meantime they lived in the "Garden of
Dreams," with "Cupid's Telephone" doing continual service, until the "Marriage
Bells" began to peal forth its message for better or for worse.
In striking array the attendants were paired off, all ready to march, when
"Noisy Bill" pumped out the first notes of the "Wedding March." Leading the
procession down the aisle were "Sliding Jim" and "Polly Prim," followed by "Red
Head" and "Red IVing," "Pony Boy" and "Cheyenne," "Hickory Bill" and "Arrah
VVanna," "Peter Piperi' and "Ida-Hof' "Hiawatha" and "Minnehaha." Then came
"Broncho Bob" and "Silver Bell." The ceremony said by "Parson Spencer," they
left to spend "An Eve at Mrs. Claney's Boarding House." For supper they had
"Peaches and Cream," and by "Sunrise" the next day they were "Out in an Auto-
mobile," with "Old Black Joen as the chauffeur, rolling on to "Home, Sweet Home."
"Hannah" did the cooking, and "Abraham Jefferson Washington Lee" was the

It proved to be their "Fatal Wedding," for she found out that he was the "Man

they hummed "No Wedding Bells for Me," and "On My Way to Reno" they went
to get the document, so they could "Live Happily Ever After," and also to sing with
full force in a few days that familiar ditty, 111,111 Just Crazy to Marry Again."

That we're the Southern champions, in the good old summertime.
They had never seen a lively time in quaint old Jackson town
Until the boys from U. of M. dropped in to ramble 'roundg
At first the boys from Starkville thought that they would win the day,
But when they had played a down or two we taught them to relay.
VVell, didn't we ramble? VVc rambled, we rambled through the line
Of A. 8z M. every time. O, didn't we ramble? We rambled.
The way we beat that football game was fine. Rah, Rah!

The Place of Athletics In a College Man's Lyfe
VVe often hear it said of a man that he is an all around college man. lVhen
we think seriously as to just what it means to be an all around college man, we
find that it carries with it a great deal, probably more than we sometimes appreciate
to thc fullest extent. But whatsoever be the true significance of the term "all
around college man," leave out of the category of his characteristics what we may,
one thing is never left out, and that is his athletics. A man is never considered an
all around college man who takes no interest in athletics. Athletics seem to play
the most important part in his make-up.
XVitl1 these facts before us, let us see just what place athletics really does
occupy in the average man's life. Does it really have a place in the average college
manis life? Does a man have to go out on the field and take part in the wrangle
and tumble of the game? To the first we say ycsg to the second we say not at all.
There are two classes of athletic men, and most college men belong to one or the
other class. There are those who take actual part in the physical exercise, and
those who take an active interest in most all which pertains to athletics except thc
physical exercise. Although the first class deserve most credit for what is done,
neither could be successful without the other. lYithout the men who wear the
uniforms and fight the battles on tl1e field, nothing could be accomplished and
cqually as well Without the active support of the men on the out ranks, athletics,
in the true acceptance of the term, would he a failure.
Regard it as we may, athletics has its place, and one which no other activity
can occupy in practically every college man's lifc.

History of Basket Ball Season
That Basket Ball Team had a trip, believe me. They talked about it before
they Went and have talked about it ever since they have been back. The only time
time they didnit talk about it was while it was a reality. lVhy? Too busy!
Manager Pierece, a man of letters and a lawyer of note, arranged a very
interesting schedule for that trip. The team was to leave Oxford on Thursday, Feb-
ruary 2, play Laurel Y. M. C. A., Jackson Tigers, Millsaps and L. I. I. and return
on February 12th. That's what was to happen-but it didn't.
THIS IS VVHAT DID.
The team left Oxford Thursday night, February Qd, bound for Laurel. It
arrived in Jackson about 3 a.m. The trip thus far had been very tiresome, because,
on account of the presence of Pierce, there had been a great deal of monkey
business, and no one had slept. From 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. the boys tried the chairs in the
lobbies of the different hotels and then left Jackson for Saratoga. The rising sun
touched off the logging scenes which were new to most of the boys, especially the
"Yanks,', and from that time on there was as much basket ball team out of the train
as the trainis little windows would permit. At Saratoga the team boarded a G. 8: S.
I. for Laurel, where they arrived at 11 a.m. Friday morning, after having run
safely through the far-famed Sullivan's Hollow. Manager Pierce wrote in a legal
hand on the registry book.of the Southern Hotel the following names: Abe Martin.
Spout Austin, By lValton, Pete Shields, Billy Cahall, Pap Pound, VVm. Tucker. and
the book bears those historic names till this day.
It was all Abe could do to keep Billy and By from throwing peanuts to the
convicts working in the street, and Grandma Spout had to hold Pap and Pete to keep
them from meeting a bunch of rustling skirts. with which the town seemed to abound.
Manager Pierce fwe must keep his official tag on him, for you could never tell
it by looking at himj in due time announced dinner. By got there first. Every one
agreed that it was SOME meal. An extract from the 'Varsity Voice, in speaking of
that meal and the others that followed,Asaid: "Billy and By in their glory." Believe
mf, everybody was in his glory. By gave as his excuse for being the last one to
leave the table that he "ate slowly." VVe have heard that before.
During the afternoon the team had a practice on the Y. M. C. A. floor just to
see what a real indoor court felt like.
At 8 p.1n. the Mississippi team took the floor and drew a round of applause from
the mixed audience for both their formidable appearance and their new suits, chiefly
the latter, for Laurel was proud of her team, and had good cause to be.
The game was a rush from beginning to end. During the latter half of the
second round Austin sustained a sprained ankle, and limped around till the end of
the period. VVhen time was called, Lawyer Pierce entered upon a difficult mathe-
matical caleulation, which as the official score, resulted in a victory for Ole Miss
After the game the team was invited to a high class private dance at the Talla-
homa Club. Pete and Billy, being too bashful to dance, shot pool, but By, Abe,
Pap and Tucker danced till the band went home. The boys hit the hay at 1 :i in.,
which was exactly forty-two hours since they had gotten up on Thursday morning.
This loss of sleep was a serious handicap at the very beginning of the trip, and its
effect was felt throughout the entire tour.
Saturday morning King Pierce announced the receipt of a telegram from the
Jackson Tigers. After Mississippfs victory over Laurel, several of the ferocious
Tigers felt sick and didn't think they would be in condition to play on Monday and
Tuesday. The team received further intelligence of an epidemic in some nearby
town, and of the probability of the panic-stricken, who had flown to Laurel, spread-
ing the disease to others in their effort to rid themselves of it.
Laurel, being near the home of Spout and Tucker, was not unfamiliar to them.
Tucker claimed to know several of the pretty girls the team had the pleasure of see-
ing, and to prove it took Billy and By up to a bunch and introduced them around.
After that things were pretty. Pap had a carriage with three girls, and Abe and
Pete stayed around the piano-at the hotel.
Although things were getting very interesting, the team was anxious to get out
of L:iurel. It was scared of the plague, called the spotted fever. One man was
reported already dead, and the townspeople were thinking of leaving. Handbills
appeared on the street during the late aftertenoon, issued by the mayor and physicians,
denying the false report of thc death of "Big Dave. from the Street t'arnival." and
the contagiousness of the disease. Still. the team was scared.
"Pierce, how soon are we going to leave here?" asked Captain Martin.
"Wie can't leave till we know where we're going." replied the philosophical
reasoner. "l'm trying to get games for Monday :md Tuesday. and when I do I'll
tell you when wc leave."
Abe closed the conversation with "that's an important matter. and it has to bc
That night CSaturdayj a crowd of young old Mississippi co-eds. attended the
gamc and made things interesting. In fact, they made it more interesting on the
side lines than in the game, for the players continually kept an eye on the fair
rooters. Spout, on account of the bad ankle he had received the night before, was
lorced to stay out of this game, and two yards and a half of Pound filled his corner.
The game, after another mathematical struggle, resulted in a victory for Laurel by
Sunday morning Manager Pierce announced that a game had been secured with
Summerland, and the team would leave at 3 p.m. for that paradise.
At 3 p.m. the train started to steam out of Laurel, with By going a close
second up the tracks. Laurel was getting interesting. and the train was leaving
altogether too soon for him.
At 4 p.m. Sunday the team was disfribufezl among the good pioneers of Sunnner-
land, for Summerland had no hotel, and its players had to furnish accommodations
to the Ole Miss boys. Billy was quartered so far back in the woods that he only got
into town once a day.
The boys were in bed two hours after the sun went down and were up again
two hours before the sun. After breakfast they niet in front of the torvnfs' store,
and then, under the leadership of Joe McCall, brother of Scotchie, went hunting.
In the afternoon Ole Miss had a pretty easy victory, winning by 20-10. Pap
Pound filled Austin's place, the latter being out with his sprained ankle, and Tucker
refereed the game.
Manager Pierce now presented a telegram, stating that Millsaps cancelled.
Mississippi College had just beaten them about .1-0-5. The manager spent a busy
day hunting another town on the map to which to send the team. He decided that
the Clark Memorial School at Newton had a court, and he would take thern there.
The next afternoon brought another victory to Ole Miss by the score of 39-15.
The team then packed into a hay wagon and had a melodious ten-mile moonlight
ride through pine forests to a hamlet named Stringer, where they spent the night in
a palace CU hotel.
Stringer faded into the distance at 6 a.m. on VVednesday morning, February
Sth, and Newton presented itself. Newton is a nice little town, with a nice little
school and a nice little dining room filled with nice little girls. Ask Spout. The
Ole Miss team might have felt very comfortable in Newton had there not been an
epidemic of measles, as the half-filled dining room proved. One Clark Memorial
boy who played the first day was in bed the second with measles, and one that played
the second game had been in bed the day before with them. The first game was
won by 39-9 and the second game fplayed on Thursday afternoonj was won by 53-7.
In the evening the team tried to have an interview with certain, specified students in
the co-ed. parlor, but the influence of King Pierce, the "Newton County Boy," was not
quite sufficient to overcome the matron and her rules.
At 3 a.m. Friday morning, February 10th, after a rousing cheer for the co-eds.
that they didn't see, the team left for Ruston, La.
Ruston proved very interesting, both athletically and socially. Billy, Tucker
and Pap all found a cozy fireplace there.
L. I. I., encouraged by a large crowd and their brass band, played a beautiful
game under the intercollegiate rules. The game was fast and exciting, and only
had a momentary pause when a big guard poked his little finger in Spout's eye.
After an uphill fight, Ole Miss lost by 25-19.
The second game had even more dash than the first, and although Mississippi
lost, the score of 15-13 will stand as a bright spot to Mississippians who remember
the L. I. I. team of 1911. In both games By at center and Billy and Pete at guards
played beautiful ball.
Manager Pierce now contracted a game with Mississippi College at Clinton.
The team left Ruston, La., at 5 p.m. Saturday, and after a very, very enjoyable
meal on the dining car, landed at the Carroll Hotel in Vicksburg. On Sunday a
loyal Alumnus of Ole Miss took the team around the National Park in his auto-
The team left Vicksburg at 5 p.m. and arrived in Clinton at fi p.m., where
they were entertained at the college dormitories.
In view of the fact that Mississippi College were the champions of the State
from the year before, and they had defeated every team they had met in 1911, includ-
ing Millsaps and A. SL M., the games to be played with Ole Miss were for the cham-
Ole Miss won the first game by 29-15 and the second by 31-13. These two
pretty victories, which brought the championship of the State to the University,
were largely due to the wonderful foul throwing of Austin, the clever little forward.
That night the team left Clinton and traveled north to Oxford, where it arrived
at 3:30 a.m., February 15, after an 832-mile journey, and with seven victories out of
ten games played.
The Basket Ball Team, composed of Austin, VValton, McCall, Shields, Cahall,
Tucker and Manager Pierce, left Oxford on the morning of February 2-lith for
Jackson, Tenn., where they arrived at 8 a.m.
They were courteously shown around the buildings of the Union University, and
then had a short practice in the Y. M. C. A. gym.
In the evening the Ole Miss team met the strong Union team in the Y. M. C. A.
gym., and after a very hard game managed to tally a victorious score of 37-25.
On Saturday night the second game was played, and resulted in a victory of
37-31. It was so fast and rough that several collisions resulted in serious accidents
to the players. In the middle of the second half, as a result of an unavoidable
collision, Tucker received a cut over the eye, which necessitated three stitches, but he
finished playing the game in fine style. After the game the teain was tendered an
informal reception by some of the young ladies of Jackson. The "spread" put
several in their glory.
The team left Jackson on Sunday morning and got back in Oxford in time for

Shakespeare has said that a man without an ear for music is fit for treasons,
stratagems and spoils. Undoubtedly he is correct, but possibly he had in mind some
distinguishing classics. or others closely related. Then, too. those who dislike certain
kinds of music. the above Shakespearean brain leak is remotely removed from their
Consider the unhappy position of Gordon Hall stop-overs. They appreciate
music. like to hear it resound through the corridors of the dormitory and want to
hear it at the proper time. Nearly every boy in the big building can do a trill, run,
retard, staccato or any kind of a jingle on that helpless box-like structure in the
lobby. From morn till night that dyspeptic piano is pawed, slammed, slapped and
smashedg it roars and thunders, and its internal anatomy, lame and stricken in
continual service, is flung unhesitatingly to the winds, it screeches and blunders, and
its chords torn from their sockets are hurled into space, it trembles and puffs and the
bombardment is only half throughg the walls shakeg students get nervous and yell
"cut it out!" Casey rides on the Santa Fe and the show is over.
Early next morning the operetta is on again. Along comes a sleepy boy to
wake Casey Jones for the early morning ride. Another wobbles around and fumbles
over a few chords and winds up with the "Cubanola Glide." Vvllell one musician
finishes his stock of bars and trills, another is right there waiting to unload. As
the notes fly about. Casey cats a light breakfast and hurriedly goes for his orders.
Somebody wishes he had a girl, and another follows with "I'm Glad I'm a Single
Man." Bach, Beethoven and Viiagner are unmercifully pounded until the original is
criminally murdered. Casey kisses his wife goobye and "Dixie" swells into the walls.
The "Grizzly Bear" sniffs the lnnnid atmosphere and goes back in hibernation, while
Casey gets his orders to carry No. 6 to Birmingliam. The "VVedding March" treads
softly into every room. and the "Sunrise" makes its appearance. Gabriel blows his
trumpet and Casey pulls out of the shed. Shades of Paderewski fall jarringly upon
the floor, "The Last Rose of Summer" is scattered over the ground. and Casey runs
sixty miles an hour. Etudes, preludes, cantos, bassos and tempo-furisos split the air
and Casey Jones stops ten minutes for dinner. "By thc Light of the Silvery Moon"
Casey nears the end of his run. The "W'altz from Faust" makes a plunge over the
ivories, and "Annie Laurie" scores a touchdown. Casey eats supper and starts for
Memphis. The train glides along until after midnight. Casey sees an obstruction
on the track and blows the whistle for brakes. Too late. the whole crew is smashed
to death, and with one big earthquake the remains of the piano burst into a thousand
shivers and quivers.
Five hours it has to recuperate. for next morning the unqnenchable Casey
eomes to life and history, sacred and profane, is again proclaimed to the tired
students. Casey has other wrecks, sees the drivers roll to his heart's content, and has
many strange incidents in his merry race over the hills and valleys. The piano still
lives, but promises to give way if Casey must occupy the limelight much longer.
To those gifted key pounders, look closely for a hint. R. H. R.

A Plea fo Hymen
"Needles and pins, needles and pins.
VVhen a man marries his trouble begins."
"Not so, not so!" cried the merry lass
Of this year's Junior academic class.
"For what is the use of a life alone,
lVhen a man may have a home of his own?
A nice little girl to mend his frocks,
Sew on buttons, and darn his socks.
He'd never complain of his buttons gone,
Hisltie misplaced, or his shirt sleeves torn
He'd never again his collars lose-
If I were the one whom he should choose.
I'd cook his bread and steak so well
That he forever my praises would tell.
As a suffragette I never would pose,
But always docile, and sweet as a rose.
To all the world he could say with pride,
There never was a more dutiful bride.
His mother I'd love with a devotion so rare,
I'd had never an equal-all would declare.
In spite of the proverb, which many believe
It is not true and many deceives.

Q i X
The first glance at your palm, Claudia, convinces me that you
love sweet things, and it is a usual occurrence for you to say
every Sunday and Wednesday to your mates: "Gimme your des-
sert." You also nightly inform them Qexcept Sunday nightsj at
8130: "Don't wake me up, now." You are fond of pleasure and
hate responsibilityg you are brilliant, but you lack decision of pur-
pose. Many suitors have come and will come, but you will never
like any of them enough to tell which one you like best, so you will
live and die a spinster. Your declining years will be spent in
trying to manage your sister's children.
Nellie, your palm shows you to be a girl of the old-fashioned
school, modest, dignified and refined. The artistic line is well'
defined, and your most pronounced trait is talkativeness. No one
would ever think it of you, but it's true. You haven't met Prince
Charming yet, but you will, and in June, 191-lf, you and he will go
to Mt. Meadows Inn on your bridal "tower." He will be a doctor,
six feet four inches tall, and next to the nicest man in the world.
Your past life has been s e-e- mingly quiet, but it has developed
your character in the way of self-reliance and self-control. You
have a strong sense of humor and you are witty. These lines indi-
cate that you have taught school in the country, made benches,
tables, blackboards and desks, and whipped unruly pupils. You
are ideally fitted for a farmer's wife, only I can't seem to think of a
Neshoba or Newton County farmer that is good enough. XVhen
The Farmer comes into his own, though, Ruby, the beauty of your
face and character will be a delight to him forever.
You arc livelyg you are nervousg you are quick-tcmpcredg you

You are attractive, Flossieg everybody knows it. You enjoy life
in a whole-souled way, you are happy-you never have had cause
to be otherwise. You are sympathetic and lovable, courteous and
polite, and you have a decided will of your own. You have many
lovers, but your mother necdn't bother about that trousseau, because
you never will love back, "don't you know." You will spend your
life coaching basket ball teams.
Elgenia, you are capable and tidy, because you always pick up
the Commercial and straighten the chairs down stairs, you are very
decided in your opinions and very emphatic in the delivering of
them to other people. You write campus letters sometimes and
sometimes, most generally, in fact, the Salutation is "My Darling."
Most folks will be surprised at that, because they think you aren't a
bit sentimental. Your lawyers will all pursue their practices,
though, and you will become president of a ll'oman's Rights Club,
and you will be largely instrumental in securing universal suffrage
' 1 lj
Lucilc, you are too much of a baby to have decided lines in your
palm, but there are slight indications. VVhen you learn to drink
your coffee without spilling it, when you learn not to lose your suit-
case- key. when you learn to make 90 in Math., your education will
he complete. You will marry a society man, and then you both will
"do society" together.
Mildred, you are light-hearted and gay, you have nice manners
and a sweet disposition. You are descended from a long line of
tailors, but you couldn't even embroider a T on your mother's
Christmas napkins. You let another girl dream about the boys you
go with, which isn't at all wise. My advice is to have such dreams
stopped. You will be teacher of Greek in a girls' school until you
marry the president, and then you will be the lady principal.
You, Mary Moore, are going to marry the son of a hotel keeper,
and you all will inherit the hotel. You will act as porter sometimes
and squall out your hotel with great gusto at the station, and all of
your 'Varsity mates will always stop with you. You will be happy,
for you have a happy, hc-arty and olly disposition, worry will never
come near to you.
Camille, you were born in Ki-ye, Africa. A Whirlwind caught you
up and deposited you on the banks of the Mississippi, hence your
name. Your hair was black till one day you told your mamma the
truth when the devil said tell a story, and he at once made your
hair red. You were always a good Sunday School girl, and since
you came to the University of Mississippi you keep up your record.
Your University life is happy, and I see a still happier future for
you. Pharmacy will not he your profession long, for in 1912, Sep-
tember 10, you will marry your boss.
Sallie, all your ancestors were lawyers, and I believe you are in a
direct line from Blackstone. Anyway, it is a great line, and you
must be proud of it. In early childhood you eould repeat Blackstone
and other great law authorities hours at the time, and you played
with law books dressed up instead of dolls. Now you are leading
classes at a great institution of knowledge, and you will leave your
marks. Most of your time is spent at the monument, and you always
go to class half an hour ahead of time. You will be a missionary
Lulu, a jolly girl and very fond of laughing at a certain sweet
girl in the hall. You are a perfect encyclopedia of jokes and horse
laughs, but your greatest knowledge is in Chemistry. There you
will make a mark or a great sound at the end of the second term.
Your chief amusements are sweeping, skipping up the hill from the
depot and playing cards. The "little dence" is your pet card. I see
a love affair, but it won't last long. You will marry a tall, white-
headed man, and live in N ew York.
You are a Dixie lass, but your parents are Yankees. In childhood
you were given to fighting, and you got many whippings on that
account. One day a boy gave you two black eyes-I see you have
them yet. Seemingly you are dignified and quiet, but on second
look I Hnd a fun-loving nature. By instinct you are an actress, and
your talent shows oft' to best advantage when you are "Paul Revere"
riding a wooden horse. In 1912 you will have a desperate love
affair with a young preacher, but it will all come to naught, for in
1913 you will marry a gardener and raise turnips.
Puck was your father, Lois, and the Queen of Fairies your
mother. Launcelot Gobbo found you in Fairyland and brought you
to earth, where you changed to a real live person in 1890. At
school you were the mischief maker at all times, and the teacher
often made you stand on your head in the corner. Your father sent
you here, thinking you'd be good, but you wozzlrl not. You are a
dear little girl, but a good time is your ambition. Let me warn you,
though, quit fiirting now. You have many broken hearts on your
record, but remember, "VVhatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also

Annie, you are kind and thoughtful, very accommodating, and
take :1 special delight in bringing up breakfast to your sleepy friends.
You are not an admirer of Illffll'-but here! this line indicates one
man. He is rather a ''down-in-the-mouth" fellow, but he is your
only admirer. You have a good voice and will become a famous
You take life easy, Marie Emmag you do as little as possible, sleep
a good deal, have a special fondness for oystersg use your spare
moments in looking for your roommate and playing football. You
have a love affair. Yes, you will marry, but not for some years-
after you have become famous as a wig maker.
Flora, you are self-confident and brave. You have a peculiar
fondness for sciences and are particularly interested in things per-
taining to medicines and medicos. You have several admirers-a
doctor, a lawyer and a missionary. You are considering an ocean
voyage. Do not take it. You like your lawyer admirer the best,
but even he is not your "ideal." You will become famous and rich
by making a patent medicine. You will spend your later years on a
ranch out West.
Miss Leverett, fold your hand up real tight. There now, open it
wide. This deep middle line shows that you have had much worldly
experience. You are quick and active. You have been disappointed
in love. You now have faith in no man. You have a great respect
for your own knowledge. Your one amusement is playing hymns,
and you will spend your life in church work.
Lille Belle, what an interesting handl Love, money, books,
travels. Here are two distinct love affairs. By Dick, what-er under
thc son will you do? You love fame. Yes, you will choose "The
0rator," but not until you have deeply considered the black-haired
doctor. You will inherit :1 great fortune, which you will finally will
to your Alma hlater.
Ruth, you are a born fighter. These straight, well-marked lines
show that you are descended from strong stock. You are not timid
QU, but are willing to butt into anything worth while. You are
thoughtfulg your actions are deliberate and wise. You are natur-
ally studious and ambitious. Your one ambition is to have at least
four degrees, which shall come in the following order: B.A., ? M.A.
?, Mrs., M.D. You will be supremely happy when you have gotten
your wish, and you will spend your later years in the study of
Elise, you are very energetic and persevering. You are a great
talker. You desire social position. You will spend several years
at a Northern college of medicine and will finally become a Red
Anna, you "hold the world but as the worldf' You are fond of
amusements, especially dancing. You are babyish and love to be
humored. You have many admirers, and after your college years
you will become a successful society lady.
Edna, my, what a timid hand you have! I wonder if you ever
raised your voice to answer some girl shouting to you ust around
the corner? Are you very eager to know about the future? You
needn't worryg there is no trouble depicted hereg perhaps it is not
exactly what you would want, though. Your life will be one of
sacrifice, spent in the care of your father and mother. You will
never want, although you do not work for yourself, for your brothers
and sisters will look out for you.
Mattie, you are generally kind and good-hearted. You are very
absent-minded and afford much amusements to your friends. You
are not particularly studious, but rather like society. You will
marry one of your school day admirers, and will live out VVest.

Grace, you are of a very quiet disposition, like pretty clothes,
and consequently like to primp. You don't like to study, and are
rather inclined to get others to do your work. You take life easy and
work as little as possible. You like the boys fine, yet in your tastes
you are rather ancient, for at present Eli's son is in love with you.
You have many admirers, one especially, a big tall fellow, but you
don't like him. You will marry some day, but some radical changes
are coming into your life before you do.
Marguerite, you are of a sweet, cheerful disposition, very talka-
tive and sociable. In fact, you are far too much so for your studious
neighbors. You, too, like the boys, but nobody would ever know it.
You think yourself very unattractive, yet many admire you. You
will marry, but not until you have spent five years in some mission
field and have come to reconcile yourself to some of the inevitables
of human conduct.
Dorris, you are the sunshine of everybody's eye who know you-
full of fun, talkative and studious. You like dancing above all
things, and can dance exceedingly well. Nothing bothers you except
your thesis, otherwise you enjoy the present. Many great things are
before you, and you could have a great career, but you are going to
lay all of these aside for love. You will have many chances before
the right one comes.
Bailey, you, pretty maid, are a very lovable girl. You are stu-
dious, bright and conscientious. and yet one of the biggest story tell-
ers in the University. You are accommodating, gentle and refined.
You have had a very desperate love affair, and will never have
another. You will marry the man with whom you are now in love
and settle down in thc country to enjoy the happiest life imaginable.
Josephine, you are a studious, conscientious and refined girl. You
are slow and deliberate, much to the sorrow of your Iidgety room-
mate. You are of ri loving disposition, and have formed some very
strong attachments, which have been broken with much heart ache.
You have had several love nfllairs, :ind are going to have many more.
Frivolous things disgust you. Your delight is in the deep things-
those that count. You like to know the why of things. You are
going to be a missionary and do great things in a foreign land. You
are going to teach for several years. You may marry, but it is
doubtful-you will if you find your ideal.

A Co-Ecfs Latin Methods Note Book,
This is a fine class, for every member in it is so studious and interested. I sec
here the prospective teachers of the State. I am going to take good notes today.
There are six reasons why you should study Latin: QU It trains the mind,
it is a cultural study, lfm hungry. I didn't eat enough breakfast. You
just ought to have heard old Sukie bust in history this a.m. He asked her what form
of government was in the Province of Rhode Island, and she told him all forms-
judicial, executive and legislative. I laughed till I cried. Say, what was that other
reason for studying Latin? I didn't catch it. Oh, yes. CGD Study Latin for itself.
Use Roman pronunciation. Prof. Gildersleeve and Lodge use that. Prof. Bennett
uses the English pronunciation. "You will recall" that the majority side with our
professor on this question. A pupil should learn the declension of nouns and adjec-
tives, comparison of adjectives and adverbs, the numerals, cardinals and distribu-
tives, all the rules of syntax, and the conjugation of all the regular, deponent,
irregular and defective verbs in his first year Latin. Goodness! I don't know half
that much now, and I have studied Latin for the last eight years. I think that I
shan't be a Latin teacher if the children of this generation absorb the stuff so
quickly. He is judging by himself, most likely. Precocious youth! He was an M.
A. student at the University of Virginia when he was 20. Pupils should memorize
his vocabularies day by day, and also learn the quantities of the vowels Csome more
work for the first year, I presurnej.
Did you go to hear Ruth Gray? Did she answer your question? I certainly do
think that she ought to give you your quarter back, for that is earning money under
false pretenses. I'd like to ask her a few questions myself, but I want mine to be
private. I would have ust died if she had answered me like she did that other girl.
Let me see your note book, I've kinder lost out.
Oh, yes! Read Fabilae Faciles and then something else if you can, and if you
can't, take up Caesar. Gee whiz! The idea of my teaching Caesar is too ridiculous
to mention. I couldn't read the Bridge nor the 1-Lth chapter if my life depended
on it. I prefer to read more interesting stuff. Have you read "A Modern Instance?"
It was interesting, but it wound up very unsatisfactorily. It didn't ever tell whether
they married or not. The hero was a cripple and the heroine a divorcee.
Read article in School Review on Latin Methods in Germany, Vol. XIII., page
130. He needn't have bothered to give the exact reference, for I'm not going to read
it. Puck and Life for me when I go to the library, and none of your school review
You will "recall" that our professor said "in the hearing of some of us" that
we should read Caesar the third year-that is, if we had the time. Most of this
work is recalling, it appears to meg as for having time, I'm positive that I will not
have time to read Caesar the third year. Have written recitations frequently and
use the blackboard constantly.
The Glee Club performance comes off tomorrow night, doesn't it? They say
this Glee Club beats previous glee clubs all hollow. I wouldn't miss it for anything.
They say McKinney is a splendid tenor and Caldwell is on the quartette. VVhat? He
said Cicero came after Caesar? I like Cicero. I memorized a half a page of it once.
when I was younger than I am now. "It was stated previously in the hearing of some
of usi' that prose composition plays an important part in the study of Latin. A
teacher should always compose her own sentences. Humph! If I composed mine
I eouldn't ever get them into Latin. I can't write anything except letters, and
speaking of letters reminds me how I wish the bell would ring. Do you reckon the
train has come? I thought I heard it blow awhile ago. Say, will you go with me
to the postoffice after class? Do you know what Baconis Rebellion is? VVell,
Rebellion got mad at Bacon, and they had a fight. That's what one of Amory's
young hopefuls had to say on the subject. I think he deserved a "IO" for trying.
VVell, you needn't turn the corners of your mouth down like that, you look like "How-
do-you-do VVillie." lVhy, haven't you ever heard that joke? lvcll, one time some
parents, with their young America, started to Europe, and the parents, in connection
with all of the other passengers. got seasick, but not so Yvillie-he never felt better
in his life. Consequently his animal spirits caused him to worry his mother, who, not
feeling equal to his correction, referred the matter to the father, saying: A'Papa,
speak to lVillie." "Papa," too weak to protest, said in feeble tones, "How do you do,
lVillie?" You "orter" been to the spelling match the other night. Mr. Longest sat
down on parlor. No, I didn't spell, I was too scared. Mrs. Rayburn spelled them
all down-S. Bfs motheij, by gosh! I'm stupid as an owl today. I sat up till one
o'clock last night: reading. I was simply so enthralled I conldn't rest till I finished
it. Pinch me if I go to sleep. I'm taking notes so industriously, though, that I
f-an't let myself go to sleep. .Inst look! I have written eight pages! Don't you
know that he thinks that I am the best student in the class? That's not deceitful,
either, for "then1's my sentiments."
Haven't got nothing,
Never had nothing,
Don't want nothing
Which do you like better or best, "Sincerely yours," "Devotedly yours," or
4'Lovingly yours?" Me, too, Kid. I'm with you. This surely is a long period.
Thank goodness there's the bell.
A fDayl Dream
Last night I dreamed a dream so sweet,
lvhen Dreamland's shores my soul had
Seems glorious now, while all alone-
I wish it true, but it has flown.
It was of you, love--you, my dear:
Yow, do not sigh, love-do not fear.
You were my own, my pretty queen,
I would 'twere yet e'en as it seemed.
Oh, tell me now, sweet maiden fair.
Oh, tell me-thou with charms so rare,

Oh, do say yes, for I love you!

"I don't believe I have ever seen you on the campus," the Senior ventured.
"No, we girls never get anywhere. Mrs. Leavell is such a mean old grouch she

The clammy fold of sunless sleep
Has settled on my brow,
I saw the devil closer creep-
Methinks I see him now.
He clutched my throat with iron grip,
My eyes poped from my head,
With fiery breath he whispered: "Death,
Forever dying-dead I"
The devil had a shaggy mane,
And crumpled horns had heg
His tail he'd shake like a fiery snake--
His eyes, ah, me! ah, me!
I shook the devil from myself,
I grinned to see him gog
Like a fiery snake within his wake
His tail was dragging low.
Deep down within a dingy cave,
No moss was on the wall,
As silent as the silent grave,
As sickening as a pall,
I saw a fiddle on the shelf.
The box had monstrous size.
I'll play a dance, 'twill make him prance
'Twill make the devil rise.
With fiendish glee I grinned to tilt
The cover of the boxg
I felt no fear, I knew no guilt,
I crushed the rusty locks.
The cover raisedg I stood amazed
At what I there beheld!
A rattling sound made loud resound,
My breath I tightly held.
I gasped for breath-ah, worse than death
The horror I then knew!
VVith beads of sweat my brow was wet,
My breath I gasping drew.
The bones they left their box of wood-
They rose up one by one-
They danced in place and lo! there stood
A ghastly skeleton!
I tried to shriek, I could not shriek,
My jaws were tightly lockedg
Hard shook my head with hellish dread
And fear my body rocked.
The skeleton held out his hand,
His bony hand held he,
And with his other bony hand
He slowly beckoned me!
And in the hand that he held out
An adder coiled to springg
I knew that I beyond all doubt
Was doomed to feel its sting.
The adder hissed, the skeleton
Now wore a ghastly grin,
And still I reckoned as he beckoned
All my life a sin.

History of Chemistry Club
Under the direction of Drs. Muckenfuss and Kennon, the Chemistry Club was
organized on the evening of November 15th, 1910.
From the iliterest displayed, it is evident that the venture has proven successful.
The number of members has increased from fourteen to twenty-seven, and these
are very wide-awake, enthusiastic students. As great benefit has been derived from
the lectures and discussions ini this short time, we have reason to expect much in the
future from these chemists in embryo. Already some of them make statements and
prophecies that would make Dalton, Liebig and others sit up and take notice.
NYC are young, but-
"XVatch us grow, watch us grow,
XVe, the Chemistry Club, you know.
Knowledge and wisdom are our aim,
To win for each a share of fame.
XVateh us grow, watch us grow."
An Ante-Exam Nightmare
The midnight oil burned low, I watched the wick drink up the last few drops.
The light fliekered and then died out weakly. I was glad of it, for my head was
weighted with the knowledge I had been trying to pound into it for the last six days.
I went to the window and raised the shade. The moonlight so transfigured all out-
of-doors that I wanted to gaze on the sight, so I sat down by the window, tired as
I was, and rested my chin on my arms.
Soon the ground and trees faded away, and I could see nothing but the soft.
silvery light. I became aware of a chilly sensation and tried to move, but found I
could not. I seemed to he bound hand and foot, and strange as it may seem, I was
very comfortable. I was aware of nothing for some time except that feeling of com-
fort and rest, until I heard a slipping, sliding sound. Then I saw a number of
people, a good deal larger and more massive than ordinary men, who were chopping
and cutting the ice. and seemed to be trying to extricate a large, dark object. On
looking around me I found that ice seemed to be everywhere.
"Oh. yes." and I smiled to myself as I said it, "this is the Glacial Age, and I
have come down from Canada. or the North Pole, or somewhere, in the middle of :1
I felt the sun's rays shining more warmly than before, and soon I could draw
my hands out of the ice. I attempted to pull my feet out, too, but decided I'd better
wait until the ice had melted from around them. Just then one of the choppers
caught sight of me. and calling to his fellow workers, strode slowly toward me.
"Now, that's a new species, all right," said he.
"I believe he will be a delicious morsel for the Zenglodon of Mississippi. You
know we must take an offering to him next century." said another.
I began to quake.
"Yes, he looks like he would be the very thing we're looking for, but. you will
remember, the Zenglodon does not like any animal with a very well developed brain.
so we will first have to see if he can stand the tests."
'While this conversation was passing I was shivering from fear and from physical
chill. The wind that swept ovcr the ice sheet was sharp and biting to mc now, as I
was no longer protected by the ice. The men noticed that I was sufi'cring, so they
cut the ice away from my feet and told me to run down the mountain. I started oil'
at a slow gait, when they told me to run faster, and commenced chasing me. NVQ
soon reached a group of caves at the foot of the mountain. As wc approached thc
caves some children, who were dressed in skins and crawling on all fours like
monkeys, ran into the several caves to announce the arrival of myself, "a new
species," they called me. The cave dwellers came pouring out and impulsive social
action prevailed. They crowded around me and talked vociferously. It seemed
that they couldn't decide what ought to be done with me.
Finally, the man who had first discovered me emerged from one of the caves,
and commanding them to be silent, cried in an officious voice: "My brothers, the
Tribute Committee has held a caucus, and has decided that this new animal shall be
sent as our century offering to the Zenglodon. As you all know, he will have to be
taken through the tests first, and the Tribe of the Lion's Jaw is commissioned to
carry him through them. He looks like an animal of very low brain development, so
I think he will not stand many of the tests. As soon as he fails you will bring him
back here and deliver him to the High Marshal of the Zenglodon Tribute Council."
During this speech I trembled like an aspen leaf. YVhat were the tests that I
had to pass? And what if I should fail on one of them? It was perhaps natural
for these questions to keep pounding in my brain. My captors, for so they were,
thought I trembled from cold, so they took me into the nearest cave, wherc they put
a fur coat, hood, boots and gloves on me, and gave me a big hunk of seal meat to eat.
The chief of the' Tribe of the Lion's Jaw, with his two sons, seemed to be more
eager to start on the journey than I was, for they were ready and had me on the
sleigh before I had finished my repast. I was hungry, however, and although the
meat was nine-tenths fat, I continued to chew on it until it was all gone. W'e soon
reached the sea, in which a number of icebergs were floating. The chief jumped
ofi' the sleigh and went to the shore, while his sons turned the dogs around and
started them back home. The chief motioned to his sons, and the taller one lifted me
in his arms. They were treating me as if I were a baby, so I said: "I can Walk if
you will just tell me where to walk to," and I tried to get loose, but could not, for
he was as strong as a young giant.
"No, we are responsible for you, and you might step in a crack," he said, and
stepped on the block of ice with the chief and his brother. In a few minutes we
were fioating on the iceberg out into the water. The stout son had a long stick, and
every time we came near another iceberg he would use it to push clear of it, and in
that way avoided any delay in our journey. After many long hours of traveling
we reached a bay, and as we neared the shore they took me off and jumped onto
what seemed another iceberg. On closer inspection it proved to be a very clear
iceberg, which was grounded.
The chief pointed downward and said: "Xow, sir, name those plantsf' I was
dazed for a moment, but then I saw that the plants at the bottom of the bay could
be distinguished through the ice. I leaned down with my nose pressed against the
ice, and as the plants became clear, repeated confidently: "Oscillatoria, Ulothrix,
Vaucheria, Riccia, Marchantia, Polymorpha, Equisetum, Isoltes and Selaginellaf'
My companions were very much surprised at my ready answer. It was nearly
dark by this time, so we climbed to the top of the cliff , where I was given the
second test, which was to name the constellations visible in the heavens. I wisely
located the North Star Hrst, and then with gratitude to the professor who had taught
them to me years and years past, as it seemed, I said: "Ursa Major, Ursa Minor,
Casscopiea, Perseus, Orion, Laurus, Leo, Canis Major and Canis Minor." There
really were a few others, but I did not name them, because I did not recognize them.
The chief seemed to have overlooked them, too, for he appeared fully satisfied with
I was next taken before a council of chiefs and told to give an "impromptu"
declamation from memory. I attempted to rise to the occasion. At any rate I arose
from my chair, and with a brave attempt to keep my knees from shaking, began
mechanically, "Ladies and gentlemen, I did not expect to be called on this morning,"
etc. Then I recited the "Charge of the Light Brigade" by Tennyson. Of course,
that is a sad, serious and solemn occasion which the brigade went through, but the
council seemed to see a great deal of humor in it, and laughed uproariously as I
neared the conclusion. The chief who had charge of me frowned as I sat down,
and I knew that I had passed another test.
Two or three days elapsed before I was given another test. because we had to
travel over the mountains to the palace of the King of the United Tribes of America.
We rode in pockets which were hung over a mastodon. and looked like large saddle
bags. It was indeed a novel mode of travel to meg in fact, it was more novel than
comfortable, as the mastodon walked the pocket swung back and forth like a
pendulum, and to be rubbing against the rough skin of the animal was annoying, to
say the least of it. VVhen we reached the palace I was presented to the King and
instructed to speak to him in four different languages. My heart sank as I heard
my instructions, for I had never studied but two foreign languages in my life. It
suddenly occurred to me, however, that my roommate had once taught me to say one
sentence in a number of different languages. My courage and my heart rose as I
recalled that sentence. I recited it confidently: "Ich liebe dich. Ego amo te. Yo
amoda usted. Je taimef'
The King seemed to feel that he had been very much complimented to be
addressed with such feeling by a "homo," but the chief and his sons shook their
heads despondently, for they were beginning to fear that I should pass all the
tests after all.
For the next test Qand I have reason to believe it was to be the last onej, I
was taken into a hexagon-shaped mud house. In one corner of the room-there was
only one room to the house-a little old man, with long, white hair and beard, sat
deeply absorbed in books. He looked up as I entered, then silently walked to the
middle of the room, and with a piece of charcoal wrote an algebraic expression on
the floor. He pointed to it and said in a shrill voice: "Solvel" I looked at it
blankly for a moment, and then realized that it was a quadratic. lVhere, ol1 where,
was all my knowledge of Freshman math! My head felt heavy, and all I ever knew
seemed to be in a. helpless jumble. I was entirely unable to compose myself and
to reach into the pigeon hole of my brain where Math. usually stayed. Such a
condition was evidently the result of the strain I had been on. My companions
were ubilant When they saw my discomfiture. The little old man hopped round and
round on one foot, and even the stern old chief danced around me and cried, "I-Ie'll
do for the Zenglodon li'
lVhen I realized what my failure meant and what my fate would be, the little
room turned around rapidly, my head ached, my eyes burned and I fell limply to the
floor. When I "came to" I found that I had fallen out of my chair and struck my
head on the window frame. I got up rubbing my head and crawled in bed, but was
shaking so I couldn't go to sleep till after daybreak.

The Making of the Ideal College Man
Are you an ideal college man? Did you ever conceive in your mind's eye one
of these characters? Did you ever see one? Does your college life measure up to
your conception of an ideal college man?
His requisites are varied, but it is not necessary that he should be a superior
athlete in all phases of athletics, it is not necessary that he should be a "shark"
as to mental capacities, nor is it necessary for him to be a "goody-goody," and too
pious to open his mail on Sunday.
He comes to the college or university with a solemn purpose to use the powers
God has given him to the best advantage. His thought is not mainly what he can
get out of the institution, but what he can add to its welfare. He places the
trials, joys and triumphs of the school along with his and makes himself part of the
machinery. He does not pass through college without a knowledge of what he is
doing, for the college work is vital and essential, and he goes to work zealously and
Opposed to all unnecessary and rude frivolity, he looks upon the stunts of the
vocal chord artists a11d promiscuous forms of hazing as very ungentlemanly and
indecent. His mother taught him to be a gentleman, and he has respect for all
classes of college men. Are you living an ideal college life? Does your conception
agree with this?
There is a smile on his face, his greeting is cordial, his handshake hearty,
scatters sunshine, expects and gives a square deal, courteous to all, idleness is not
tolerated and truthful in every utterance. There are men of this type in the Univer-
sity. Do you know him? Does the toga fit you? He does not act the fop, the sport
and the dandy. Does not fret and grumble about existing conditions, polite and
mannerly in all dealings, refined taste and admires others more than himself. CHe is
modest, kind, of keen honor, cheerful and happy. He lives to his promises, looks you
in the eye, temperate in habits, not a perpetual grind, takes interest in literary
societies, Y. M. C. A., and all forms of athletics.
Changing a few words of that well-known description from Shakespeare, it
gives the essence of the ideal college man. It reads:
"His life is gentle, and the elements
So mixed up in him that
Schoolmates can stand up
And say to all the world,
This is a MAN."
Are you? Do your schoolmates say this of you? Seriously, can they? Again,
:ire you an ideal college man? R. H. R.

History of Teachers, Club
It is natural for teachers to enjoy the fellowship of other teachers. They love
to meet in clubs, where they can discuss with each other the great problems, yes,
perhaps the greatest problem which confronts teachers today: lVhat can we do to
place society upon a higher and firmer basis? The true teacher seeks development,
strives to grow stronger, and will sacrifice much in order that he may be better ablc
to help others to a higher and nobler living. lVith this purpose in view, the teachers
who attend the University have organized the University Teachers' Club, which
meets regularly and carries out excellent programs. It is one of the livest clubs in
the University, and much good is derived from it. Its members make for their motto
that of Edwin Osgood Grover:
"I believe in boys and girls, the men and women of a great tomrorowg that
whatsoever the boy soweth the man shall reap. I believe in the curse of ignorance,
in the efficacy of schools, in the dignity of teaching, and in the joy of serving
another. I believe in wisdom as revealed in human life, as well as in the pages
of printed books, in lessons taught not so much by precept as by exampleg in ability
to work with the hands as well as to think with the head, in everything that makes
life large and lovely. I believe in beauty in the school room, in the home, in daily
life and out of doors. I believe in laughter, in love, in all ideals and distant hopes
that lure us on. I believe that every hour of every day we receive a just reward
for all we are and all we do. I believe in the present and its opportunities, in the
future and its promises, and the divine joy of living. AMEN."

History of DeSolo Counly Club
The members of this club were born and reared in the jungles of DeSoto County,
State of Mississippi. About thc Qoth of September, 1907, the first members of this
club were taking a ride in a balloon. which was steered in a southeasterly direction.
On nearing the University of Mississippi campus, the balloon became entangled in
the top of some tall oak trees. By some hook or crook all the occupants of the bal-
oon, Payne. Robinson, Tipton and McCracken. succeeded in reaching the ground in
safety. After wandering around in the vicinity of Oxford, they were taken into
custody by the Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Mississippi.
After much consideration, tllree of them, Payne, Tipton and llcflracken. enlisted
as candidates for a B.E. degree, and tl1e other, Robinson, entered as a candidate for
a B.S. degree. After the Hrst year only two, Payne and McCracken. were left on
the Engineering train. Sometime during the session of 1908-09 "Doe" Tipton
was caught by a "stiH"' from the Science Hall, and was persuaded to take up the
study of medicine. Robinson was also caught up and taken to the Dean of the
Medical Department for examination. Having stood the examination, he gathered
his bowie knife and entered the "stiff" department.
In the fall of 1908 another one of the DeSoto Club birds, "Josie,' VVheeler,
decided to start out in search of his comrades. After much hard work he found
them at the University of Mississippi. "Josie', was captured by the Engineering
Department on account of his mathematical resemblance to two of his predecessors,
"Big" Payne and "Bunk" McCracken. "Josie" studied diligently. but soon found
that he had not boarded one of the "gravy trains" at the University.
In the fall of 1909 tl1e other two lost members of the flock, "Red" Johnston
and "Gen." Allen. decided to follow the old members of 1907-08. After several
days of roaming, they found their mates strutting about the University campus.
"Red" Johnston had much trouble in getting settled, for all the upper classmen
seemed to have something against him. He was called upon on all occasions to
either make a speech or sing "Everybody VVorks But Father." "Red" iinally settled
clown as a candidate for a BS. degree. "Gen.,' Allen placed his anchor in the
Some time in the spring of 1911, all the members of this club. having once more
gathered together, decided to reorganize. The meeting was called, and the following
were elected members: "Bigl' Payne, "Glory" Robinson, "Doc" Tipton, "Gen." Allen,
"Red" Johnston, "Bunk" McCracken and "Josie" VVheeler.
Qedicaled io our Old Friend "Ziff,
The door opened! I led the rush.
I grabbed the grits CI hate that mushj,
Then let it pass to get the peas,
But they were gone. I yelled for grease.
YVith butter now at my cmmnand
For corn bread I made a demand.
That, too, was gone. I grabbed some plates
VVhere once had been some 38s.
Oh. visions of a meal gone by-
"Pass me that meat, it looks quite dry."
I took the plate and stabbed a bone
And noticed that I sat alone.
No food had touched my hungry lips,
So in despair I hugged the ZIP.
Shortly after the Ides of March a number of trains stopped at Oxford in
mistake for Ship Island.
Some of the towns visited by the Basket Ball Team while on its victorious tour
of February were Laurel, Summerland, Newton, Ruston, La., and Jackson, Tenn.
Letters are now coming regularly to By from Laurel, to Pete from Summerland, to
Spout from Newton, to Billy from Ruston, and to Tucker from Jackson.
"Du Tell" me why Billy Cahall, since he spent two days in Ruston, La., has
been devoting so much time to the study of French?
VVhen the Freshman visited Ricks Hall. he noticed that SHE was puffed to
infinity, and she noticed that HE was bluffed to affinity.
After the Freshman had read through the twenty questions on the fifteen
blackboards that Dr. Drane has finished writing. he asked: "VVhat is supposed to be
the subject of this examination Fi'
"Yon can see by the ground it covers it is surveying," was the reply.
The fellow that turned the lights oft' in the dining hall had to use a tooth brush
to get the butter out of his ear. but when he tried the same stunt at Ricks Hall he
had to use a comb to get the hair out of his teeth.

BALD HEAD CLUB
STUDENTS WATCHING BALL GAME FROM ROOF OF GORDON HALL
Faculty Meeling a Ia Scientifc
"There will he a faculty meeting this afternoon at Lzio. and every professor
is urgently requested to be present. You are dismissed."
Thus was the finale of chapel exercises one rainy morning in April. flIlHl'lll'ft'I'-
isiically, the Chancellor uttered the words with a seriousness. and every one of the
faithful few who attend chapel felt that something extraordinary would come up
in the heretofore monotonous faculty meeting.
XVhen the last class had finished its conventional grind and had disappeared
into their respective rooms, the walking "Text-hooks" wearily trudged into the well-
furnished office. The last one had come, and when he had meekly rested his frame
on one of the soft cushions. the Chancellor arose and called the meeting to order.
"As you all know, but I just wanted to warn you that the scientific world is in
a great state of unrest."
Smiley Johnson-Beg pardong what did you say?
Chancellor-I want to make a request of the scientifically inclined members of
the faculty to fathom this puzzling question.
Hume-To get the mathematical ernctness, you must state the problem.
Chancellor-I was coming to the subject. A man was hlown into a million
atoms, and by using some kind of an asiatical cordial his petite parts were knitted
together, and today he is a Well man.
Smiley-Beg pardon-perfectly terrible.
Chancellor-But, gentlemen, there is a greater upheaval in scientific progress.
A subway to England is the paramount question of today, and we must solve it.
Many men have planned the undertaking. but it will take under so much coin the
gold laden bipeds won't fork over.
Prep-To my mind, this problem will deal with the most abstruse points in
l'l1,ysic.s' and llIetapl1.ysies. As you all know, these are as transparent to me as ether.
lllncl'-Must I work it by qualitative or qualitative analysis?
Kennon-Eh-ell-I should think the best plan is to follow our familiar chemi-
J. C. Johnson-May I have the floor? Thank you. Although I am not a
scientist, but by a happy mingling with my fellow teachers I have acquired consid-
erable knowledge by absorption. From this energy transferred I think I can solve
Hume-Please make the matlzematical demonstration.
Prep-Consider first the centripital and then the centrifugal motion.
Ifeclleston-And-er-ev'-Wliat is the fundamental principle in the matter?
Kennon-If there is any precipitate left over, let it help in the reaction.
Spann-Uh--uh-uh-I believe the bottom of the ocean must be cotangent
with the subway, and by my theory of sines it must form right angles with the plane
.vurfaee or be parallel to the water.
Smiley-Beg pardon-that sounds dippy.
J. C. Jolinson-Gentlemen, it is not etiquette to interrupt, so now to my plan.
Establish icc factories on thc seas one milc apart. Get them in good running order
and freeze a tube of icc undcrncath an hundred fcct in diameter. Thc rest is easy.
Get a big auger, borc a tunnel through thc icc tube, construct the steel casing, removc
the ice stations, lay the tracks, step in a plush seated car and out the other end you
drop into London town. I thank you.
Torrey-There might be a common difference in that theory. But by arithmeti-
cal measurement and geometrical progression, that plan could be made a component
factor and so on.
Garret--It would be an historical event, and so forth.
Longest-It's non constat to mc.
Hume-I have it. The plan works to the tenth part of a decimal, oven into
Rislzop-In this zliaznetrieal SllllSt2lllCt' how will you square the ein-le when thc
tubing has no corners? It c:xu't he clout- in literaturr-.
Cllmneellor-Please solve this mystery of the man. or I must scatter your solirl
Hume-Is it a mathematical certainty?
Dorrolz-Yes. there is not even an improper fraction in this problem of pure
Kennon-I am sure-eh-eh-eh-that when this man was blown to atoms the
reaction was due to spontaneous combustion. lVe -must keep this well in mind. No
Daniels-Do you remember whether his rubicund phiz and the redundant
exuberance seated thereon was damaged to any extent?
Spann-That question-uh-uh-uh-is alJsura'.
Paige-My diagnosis would be that he imbibed some powerful dose of explo-
sive ability, and after the big show a brother in the medical profession stitched him
together, applied porous plasters within and without, gave him that celebrated
asiatical cordial, of which I am the discoverer, told a few jokes and then the man
Hume-It seems almost il1C'0ll177l?llS1ll'I1bl6, a very negative position, and almost an
Chancellor-By elimination, I have made a simultaneous equation out of this
heretofore mystery, and the great problem that has worried the most eminent wise
men has been solved. Gentlemen, I thank you.
A general discussion of other local interests took up the remainder of the session.
"Oral pyrotechnics," "lurid language," and "verbal grenades" ran riot when the
question of hair removals came up. The shadows of evening fell over the campus,
and thc law teachers asking for a elzange of venue filed out and the great scientific
discussion was ended. R, H. R.

In Modern Business
This house is easily the largest exclusively
wholesale dry goods establishment in the South
and when its new building, now in course of
erection, is completed, it will have the largest
floor space devoted to the dry goods jobbing
business of any house South of the Ohio River,
and with one exception, South of Chicago.
Both the personnel and management of this
business are in the hands of comparatively
young men, with broad experience, yet with
the vigor, energy, enthusiasm and ambition of
We frequently have Openings for
